ANNAPOLIS, Md.. Juno 7. Investi
ration of charges of irregularities In
examinations at the United States
Naval Academy win last ten days, it
was brought out today at me iirsi
session of the court of inquiry ap
pointed by Secretary Daniels of the
The reading of the record of the tee
timony taken before the board of in
vestigation appointed by RearAdmiral
P'ulton. superintendent of the academy,
occupied the court from 10 o'clock this
morning until 5 this afternoon, with
only a short intermission for luncheon.
Then Admiral Fullam was on the wit
ness stand for nearly an hour, fie did
not finish his direct testimony, and wil
resume the stand when the court of
inquiry opens tomorrow.
Graduates Are Recalled. .
Six members of the graduating class,
who on last Kriday received their
diplomas and became ensigns, were
ordered recalled at the mention of their
names during reading of the testimony
and record of the previous investiga
tion. Professor Carlos V. Cusachs, of
the department of modern languages,
who was named in the previous record,
also will be recalled.
The old record was brought to the
statement of the several midshipmen
directly accused when they had been
asked to give reasons why they should
not be dismissed from the service for
their participation in the scandal. One
of the. strongest of these from the
standpoint of the outsider was that
they did not know they were on trial,
and had, indeed, at least in one case,
been told by Lieutenant Albert Cohen,
detailed to represent them as counsel,
that they were not on trial.
They then stated as a reason for not
being dismissed that they were con
victed on their own evidence and did
not have any opportunity to cross ex
amine any of the witnesses who
testified against them.
All Classen Get Dope."
The testimony read today was to the
effect that the examination papers for
the first, second, thjrd and fourth
classes in. Spanish to all appearances
were stolen and that following that
there was a general dissemination from
the hands of friends of Midshipman
Moss, -of the third class, of "good dope"
for all these classes.
The main point brought out by the
reading of the testimony given before
Rear-Admiral Fullam's investigation
board was that the Admiral and board
of inquiry found that of the students
who used the papers, JJidshipman Moss
had been more culpable than the youths
who used only copies of these papers.
Moss say he received his copies anony
mously in a plain envelope.
It was explained that a -custom has
grown up at the Academy of receiving
from professors advice concerning the
most important portions of the term's
work. This is called "dope." Many
of the midshipmen testified that they
thought the information so generally
disseminated was this so-called dope.
However, others admitted that when
they got into the examination rooms
they felt sure they had been furnished
with advance copies of the examination
questions. Each seems not to have re
ported it because he felt it the duty
of some of the upper classmen.
GOVERNOR FINDS WASTE
Correction in ITsingr Asylum Silos
Saves State i Many Times Fare,
SALEM. Or., June 7. (Special.)
Governor Withycombe, who returned
from Eastern Oregon today, put his
knowledge of agriculture to a practical
ue. when he discovered that the
silos at the Eastern Oregon Insane
Asylum were not managed properly
His discovery will save the state many
times the cost of his trip.
"The asylum has two large silos"
said the Gpvernor, "with capacities
double that necessary for the present
herd of 17 cows. As a result the man
agement is not able to feed the en
silage fast enough, and a large part
of it spoils. The spoiled ensilage
should not be fed. I suggested that
the herd either be doubled or that the
mount of ensilage be greatly reduced."

Governor Asks for Submission of
Reorganization Plan, When Treast
urer Kay Brings Up Question,
of Possible Curtailment.
SALEM. Or.. June 7. (Special.)
That a majority of th. membership of
the State ' Highway Commission con
templates urging John H. Lewis. State
Engineer and State Highway Engineer,
Jo reduce the number 0 employes In
both departments under his Jurisdic
tion was indicated at a meeting of the
beard today when State Treasurer Kay
asked if the overhead expenses could
not pa curtailed, and Qovernor Withy
combe suggested that Mr. Lewis and
Chief Deputy Cantine, of the highway
department, prepare a plan for office
assistance for submission tq tne ooara.
Suggesting that he understood the
object of the Legislature In combining
the two departments was to eut d,wn
the office forces. Mr. Kay asked Mr.
Lewis if anything had been donein
that direction, the engineer replying
that with the offices of the highway
department on the third floor and those
of the State Engineer on the first floor
of the Capitol, it was impossible to re
duce the force. He said he had asked
the Onvernor to be allowed the offices
now occupied on the first floor by the
Insurance Commissioner for tne High
way department. Even under that arr
ranerement. Mr. Lewis said ha could re
duce, the force pf employes c"' ' o the
extent of pne stenographer,
Secretary of Ste Ha. Jurisdiction .
Attention later was called to the fact
that the Governor has nothing to do
with allotting offises to the various
departments, that function being vested
solely with the Secretary of State. The
State Highway Department offices were
recently moved from offices on the
third floor, formerly occupied by the
Clerk of the Supreme Court, to offices
vacated by the State Industrial Acci
dent Cpmmission under a new allot
ment Mr. Lewis announced that he had in
stalled a new system of accounting in
the highway department, similar to
that used in connection with the
Tumalo irrigation project work, so he
would, have an absolute check on all
road work. Under the systepi used by
Henry L. Bowlby. e-HiShway En
gineer, there was not a sufficient check
to prove distribution of cost in several
instances, he thought.
The engineer said that Lewis Mc
Arthur had suggested that the name
of the Columbia Highway be -nged
to the Columbia River Highway to dis
tinguish it from other hlshway In the
United States. It was decided to act
on the suggestion at the next meeting,
when BeL-retary of State Olcott and the
advisory board, would be present.

Mr. Lewis said that the Consolidated
Contract Company had declined an
offer of $62,000 as balance due for
work on the Columbia Highway in Co
Ex-Highway Engineers -Bowlby and
Cantine had recommended that the
company be paid $54,500. but the county
had agreed to increase the amount
$7500 to reach a settlement. The en
gineer suggested that in counties where
the state was giving aid it would be
a good plan for the counties to turn
their money over to thestate for ex
penditure. "The counties won't do that," sug
gested Governor Withycombe. "They
have had sad experiences along that

Petrlfiea Woman Believed Kxiilbit
of Bankrupt Concession.
Although the former ownership of
the petrified woman, purchased by
Joseph Boyd, of Taylor Ferry Road, at
a recent auction held by the Pick
Transfer Company as a "pot-luck" buy,
has not been established, it was de
clared yesterday by some who had
seen it to be the same freak of nature
that was on exhibition in one of the
concessions on "The Trail" in the

The concessionaire who had the ex

the result that the storage charges for
the stone image had never been paid
and it had not been claimed. The
origin of the freak is not known.
