gence and ineficiency in the hprfor
ance of duty" relative to the ordnance
test on thme mnonitor- Puritan, has re
affirmed its original veirdict of 'comn
p'lete and honor'able acquittal, but
Secretary of the Navy Meyer has dis
approved the findings. The officeer has -
been restored to duty, however, and
the action relieves him of arrest and ' \I
formally terrminates his trial.
The conclusion of thoecase, with the 4f,
secretary's disapproval of the verdict, {
created a mild sensation among oel
cers of the navy.
The notable court, headed by Rear
Admiral Robley D. Evans, which tried
the accused officer, held its session at
the Norfolk navy yard.
After an exhaustive examination of '
the record by the legal and execu
tive officials of the navy department1'
the seetary announced that the de
partment became satisfied that the evidence of the trial proved all the specd
fleations cited against the officer.
The secretary thereupon referred the ,case back to thme court for re
consideration, The review of the testimony railed to change the opinion
of the court and conse guently the verdict' of acquirttal standis.
Captain Knight is the senior captain of the navy. By his acquittal and
restoration to duty ho probably will be promoted to the rank of roar admiiraJ
