Universal Military Education and Service

Excerpt from Universal Military Education and Service: The Swiss System for the United States Any one looking at the title of this small book might ask why a student of medicine should presume to meddle with questions which at first glance seem to lie entirely in the field of pedagogy. Therefore, a word of explanation is in order. More than a third of a century ago, when my attention was called to the development of nearsightedness in early life, I examined the eyes of over a thousand public school pupils - finding then, as had been found before, that it was impossible to graduate half a dozen from the high schools without making one or more of them near-sighted. I therefore advocated "setting-up" exercises in the schools to assist in lessening the progress of this condition - for reasons which will be given later. About that time also I began to instruct the senior class in a medical school, and soon learned how much young men might be improved by a little systematic training in promptness, exactness, restraint, efficiency, and other soldierly qualities.
