Be that as it may, Victoria College spring to arms, and the O.T.C. was created. Undergraduates, graduates and professors to give them their order of merit, enrolled. The professors, I remember, were Profs. Kirk, Easterfield and von Zedlitz and the movement made them young again. The O.T.C. was a company of infantry, fully officered and chock full of enthusiasm.
The parades were frequent but not too frequent. I do not think that it was on account of any exciting thought that war might be imminent that so many joined up—the war was the about four years off—but simply because Varsity men realizing they were through Coll. qualifying for leadership determined to complete their qualifications in the manifest and most sporting manner.
