Rear Admiral Asks
For Counsel at Navy
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jun ll.-Hear Ad
miral Fullam, superintendent of the
Naval academy, today addressed a for
mal letter to the court of tnwitry In
vestigating Irregularities In examinations
at the academy, to the effect that Inas
much as reflections had been made on
the discipline of the Institution and on
the honor of the officers under his com
mand, he be allowed to attend the ses
sions, be represented by counsel and per
mitted to rroee-examlne wlthnesees.
Captain Hussell, president of the court.
In reply, called attention to the fact
that the doors of the court were open
and referred the admiral to the precept
of the proceedings as contained In a let
ter from Secretary of the Navy Daniels
This letter directed the court from time
to time when It considered other persons
than the original defendants had become
defendant partlea, to formally notify
these persons of the fact and of their
right to be 'represented by oounsel
Oounsel for the original seven mid
shipmen recommended for dismissal. In
dicated by questions put to Midshipman
Price that the system permitting of the
giving out of helpful hints by sn In
structor In one section, not given In an
other section pursuing the same course
of study, works an unfairness.
Midshipman Ilobert J. Walker of the
preaent first class testified along similar
tines. He said the dissemination of help-
j ful information was general among mem
bers of the first and second clssses prior
to the examination. It waa not regarded
as having com from Improper sources.
Admiral Fullam, superintendent of the
eoadnmy, was recalled and furnished the
court with a list of thirty-five midship
men who had to hla knowledge possessed
advance Information relative to examina
tions. " '

ANNAPOL1R. Md.. June H.-Mldahtp-man
Oeorgs T. Price, a member of the
new first class of the naval academy,
told the court of Inquiry which Is Inves
tigating irregularities in examinations
today, that ha knew of only one man out
of the first and second classes who did
not have advance Information concern
ing the lost annual examinations In the
department of modern languages. . This
was In the form of copies of sentences
and matters that had been emphasised
In class. .
He hsd no knowledge that any of the
so-called "dope" that waa being gener
ally circulated had been eoplM from
questions In an 'official examination
paper. The combined membership of the
first and second Glasses, Price said, was
A midshipman would be regarded aa a
fool by his classmates If he reported to
the authorlttos that he had received ad
vance Information, ' Prina said.
It was always the custom to get a
"little dope" Just before examination,
he added. Borne of this waa in the na
ture of suggestions, given , ouft In the
claw room by instructors to study cer
tain things that - were important. Not
all Instructors gave out - such sugges
tions, therefore,' lie said in reply to an
other question, a midshipman in a sec
tion where such suggestions were not
given . out, was at a disadvantage aa
compared with one In a section pursuing
the some oourss of study, who received
suggestions. ' '
