Investigation into the hazing scandal
at the Annapolis Naval Academy,
which will be asked by Representative
Mudd of Maryland is expected to go
into the history of the Academy since
Josephus Daniels has been Secretary i
of the Navy. !
The criticism of the discipline is
that the attitude of the commandant. I
representing thA viewpoint of the Sec- i
retary of the Navy, has been t*at boys ]
should respond to discipline like full J J
grown men, and that the method of
enforcing such discipline is that which ;
ordinarily would find great success in |
a first year school.
Almost every member of the House I
and Senate has been approached at j
some time with appeals for influence
in mitigating discipline. Some of it,
members of Congress say, was justified
while other cases they characterized
as being worthy of the Prussian
< liarir?> Phvitlrnl Torment.
The hazing criticised, it Is understood.
Includes all cases ranging from a mischievous
desire to embarrass lower classmen,
to some cases Where physical tor- 1
mont has been inflicted. :
Secretary Daniels Is regarded as
merciless in his demand for strict'discipline
and is reported to take no cognizance
of the fact that a certain leeway
usually is allowed In other schools
for the pranks of boys who are old
enough to resent being treated like chil- f
dron and young enough to act at times
with boyish abandon.
All minor offences are treated as hazing.
according to reports current here,
and the morale of the school is at a low
On account of the many appeals mem- !
hers of Congress have had from boys
pt other times, it is expected that Hep- '
resentative Mudd will have little difficulty
in arranging his Investigation and
that a thorough inquiry will result.
In face of this Secretary Daniels re- 1
mains firm in his position and is up- 3
holding Rear Admiral Scales in enforc- I
lng what la described as "discipline." <
\ mil h,T llnzpr lllwni Insert.
It was decided by the Navy Department
to-night to dismiss a second midshipman
from the Naval Academy for
hazing. This was announced by Secretary
Daniels after a conference between
the Secretary and Rear Admiral Scales.
As in the case of the man already dismissed,
Mr. Daniels said, Admiral Scales
had recommended action after two acts
of hazing had been estrhllshed.
Mr. Daniels je-day reiterated his determination
to have all the \ipper class ;
men expelled, if necessary, saying he as
soon would expel a thousand as one, if
his idea of the discipline of the instltu- !
tion demanded it.
At the academy itself the students
nre in dally conflict with their superior
officers and latterly have indulged in the
"silenco treatment" for superior officers
as a means of showing their feeling.
This treatment is accorded in the dining
hall, where instead of the buzz of
conversation and clatter of knives and 1
forks that usually follow when the stu- >
dents take their places at table, the
most intense silence follows the nppearsnce
of the officer who has offended the
In spite of efforts to obtain the enforcement
of the rigid discipline that I
is desired, every move appears to result
in a more determined spirit of re- t
volt on the part of the upper class men. '
