Mayo then told of the conversation, but
he did not remember exactly what was
he would do so which wa strengthened, he
ald. by the fact that the officer actually
did leave the building after dinner. He had

he said the Incident of the conversation
mad a deep impression on him because
he had often heard of officers suggesting
srh things to midshipmen, but had never
before heard it himself. The defense closed
,s case at this point.
Lieutenant Snyder waa recalled by the
prosecution in rebuttal. He remembered
only that be had spoken only to Brainard
about the Isuehter. He could not remember
the words attributed to him, but would not
say absolutely that he hsd not used them.
He denied positively, however, that he had
said to Brainard that be wa going to
