Dr. Davidson Gets Com
plaint of Irregularity in
Naming of Officers.
CONFERENCE TO BE ,
' ' HELD TOMORROW
Business High School Teachers In
volved and Parents of Boys
Charges that irregularities and
favoritism marked the appointment
of cadet officers at Business High
School, today were forwarded by E.
L. Thurston, assistant superintend
ent, to Supt W. M. Davidson for in
vestigation.. Dr. Davidson has called
a conference of school officials and
parents of the boys Involved in his
office tomorrow, when the allegations
will be thoroughly sifted.
The allegations involve Principal
'Allan Davis, of Business; Col. Burton
Ross, commandant of cadets, and';
Charles Hart, -faculty military advis
or at Business High School.
Basis of Charges.
Tho charges grow out of the failure
of Cadets Irvln Frank and L. E. Eokert
to obtain appointments as captains.
Parents of these boys declare that.thclr
sons were told that, since they held
commissions as second lieutenants last
year, that It would not be necessary
for them to take another examination
for promotion to the position of captain.
For this1 reason the boys did not study
military tactics during the summer.
When the lime for the examinations
cme they were told fifteen minutes bo
toro the time for taking- It, their par
ents say, that they would have to stand
tho written, test, . ,
.i.Both- bby, havtf' Befn-"w6rkl'ji' for
commission as captain since their en
trance into Business High.
'tMy son has witnesses to prove that
Colonel Ross told him that his ex
amination last year for a commission
made his promotion possible without'
the necessity of taking another test." I
Mrs. Frank declared today. 'After
Jeurnlng this from Colonel Ross he I
went to Mr. Hart to make sure of It I
and was told by him that 'What Colonel !
Ross says, goes.' There are witnesses ,
to prove both these conversations."
As proof that an effort wns made to '
"shelve" her eon Mrs. Frank declared I
Mr. Hart had asked him to taku tho
examination for regimental appoint-1
ment, which would exclude him from
consideration for captaincy. She also
declared that her son had been in-
foimed that he would not be made u
captain before the company examina
tions wero given and she cites his
resignation a week before that' time,
as proof that Buch Information had
reached her son's ears.
"I seriously ilouH whether either
Eckert or Frank were told by Colonel
Rons or by Mr. Hurt that thoy would
not have u take the examination," said
Allan Davis today. '-The f.iu that tho
boys took the examination last year In
no way lelievcs them of tho luty of
taking It again. According to all prece
dent they were required Jo take another
test at the beginning of the new year."
