PRESIDENT REPRIMANDS 1
CARAHAO SOCIETY' '
Washington, Dec. 22. President
Wilson Issued today a memorial re
primanding those responsible for tie
program of songs and skits at the
recent annual dinner of the Carabao
Society, au organization of army and
navy officers who have served in the
Philippines, in which he considered
that hl3 insular policy was satirized
and members of his cabinet were ri
diculed. "The officers responsible for the
program of the evening," the presi
dent wrote, in part, addressing Sec
retaries Garrison and Daniels of the
war. and navy departments, "certain
ly are deserving of very serious re
primand, which I hereby request be
administered; and I cannot rid my
self of a feeling of great disappoint
ment that the general body of officers
assembled at the dinner should have
greeted the carrying out of such a
program with apparent indifference
to the fact that it violated some of
the most dignified and sacred tradi
tions of the service.
"What are we to think of officers
of the army and navy who regard 1:
as 'fun' to bring their official sup
erior into ridicule and policies of
the government they are sworn to
serve with unquestioning loyalty In
to contempt? If this is their idea
of fun, what is their Idea of duty?
If they do not hold loyalty above all
silly effervescence of childish wit,
what about their professional duty do
they hold sacred?
"My purpose In administering this
reprimand is to recall the men res
ponsible for this lowering of ' the
standard of their Ideals, to remind
them of the high conscience with
which they ought to put duty above
personal Indulgence and to think of
themselves as responsible men and
as trusted soldiers, even while amus
ing themselves as diners out."
It was announced that the mem
bers of the banquet committee, in
cluding Admiral Howard, Major
General Biddle, fJrigadier-General
Mclntyre and Colonel Heistand, will
be reprimanded publicly.
