CRITICISMS OF
DANIELS TO GO
BEFORE BOARD
Knight Naval Awards Commit
tee Takes Up Refusal of Of
ficers to Accept the Distin
guished Service Medals.
Washington. Dec. 27.—All criticisms
of Secretary of the Navy Daniels'
awards of war medals, Including that
of Admiral Sima, who refused the dis
tinguished service medal, will go be
fore the ICntght naval awards board,
which meets here Jan. 6, Daniels said
today.
The board will be directed by Dan
iels to consider all criticisms and if
necessary redraft the present list of
awards. Daniels changed the first rec
ommendations of tills board.
Daniels announced today that he
had received letters from Admiral«
Wilson, commander of the Atlantic'
fleet, and Mayo former commander,
calling his attention to the fact that
some of their recommendation« for
awards had not been followed. Neith
er of these officers, however, has re
fused to accept decorations.
Daniels also said that he had re
ceived letters from Admiral Jone«,
commander of the first division of the
Atlantia fleet, and Captain Raymond
Ifasbrouck. commander of the battle
ship Minnesota, refusing their decora
tions, because they did not agree with
Daniels' policy in awarding war hon
ors.
Daniels' action In deciding on a re
view of the awards means that the
entire controversy will be settled by
the naval officers themselves.
"I don't want any aftermath of this
war." Daniels said 'I hope that the
board will act on the awards In sued
a way as to make their decision Anal
and so thfct I can submit the report to
the president; I trust that the board
■will act so wisely tn the. matter that It
will be settled finally by the officers
themselves."

sider No Other Issues—Appropriation Will Be Confined to
Actual Expenses of Members.
The Idaho legislature will convene in extraordinary session
Feb. 11 to ratify the national woman suffrage amendment to
the federal constitution. A call for the session was issued
late Saturday afternoon by Governor D. W. Davis in a state
ment made by him. The necessary proclamation will be is

could be decided upon.
Members of the legislature will defray their own personal
expenses for the session, but will be allowed 20 cents per mile
for railroad fare. J
It is known the federal amendment will be ratified by an
overwhelming majority, since both honses unanimously passed

Fully 85 per oent of the membership of the legislature
have signified that they win attend the session, Governor j
Davis announced. j
Under the state laws only the matter expressed in the gov- 1
