MRS. ‘NETT THOMPSON
DIES IN CENIREIIE
Many residents of Annapolis will
regret to learn of the death of Mrs.
Annette Thompson, which occurred
Tuesday at the residence of her niece,
Mrs. R. Earle Fedderman, at Centre
ville, Md. Death was due to tho
infirmities of age. She was a sister
of the late Rawlings Goodwin of An
napolis.
Mrs. Thompson will be remember
ed by most Annapolitans as a clerk
In the store of Ridout Brothers, Main
street merchants, she having been,
employed there for many years. She
was affectionately known as "Miss
Nett." Some years ago. she sustain
ed a fracture of the hip as the re
sult of a fall, which practically in
capacitated her. Leaving Annapolis
sho made her home with her niece,
Mrs. Fedderman.
NAVY RETIREMENT UP TO
SECRETARY BY RULING
It is within the lawful discretion
; of the Secretary of the Navy to de
' termine whether a retired officer
[ shall be given an examination for re
> appointment to the active list, and
I even if such examination is held, the
‘ President is not required to appoint
I him to office.
‘ An opiniTm to this effect has been
l furnished the President by Acting
| Attorney-General Seymour. The ques
• tion arose over the demand of Capt.
, John Gardner Quinby, retired, for ap
pointment to the grade and rank of
rear admiral on the active list. Cap
tain Cuinby based on his demand on
an act of August 29. 1916, that he le
placed on the active list as rear ad
miral to take rank next after Rear-
Admiral Thomas S. Rogers.
Captain Quinby claims that the
statute requires the Secretary of the
Navy to establish an examining l oard
to test his fitness for the office and \
requires the President, if he passes
such an examination, to appoint him.
Seymour’s opinion holds that if the
. act required the Presideut to appoint
as active officers of the navy the
’ j individuals whom it names, it would
• ! 1 e unconstitutional, adding that he
j does not believe its provisions are
j i mandatory.
