rotation after serving a minimum of 6 months in close combat Milburn said enlisted personnel in Korea who met minimum re quirements before June 1 will be returned home if possible prior to Sept 1 Officers in this latter group he added will be rotated as soon as possible but not neces sarily before the expanded pro gram becomes effective The announcement did not specify what minimum service would be required but said rota tion would depend on the num ber of replacements available In computing time served in the far east combat soldiers will get credit for 4 months for each month actually served In other words he will qualify for rotation twice as fast as a soldier in a noncombat area of Korea who will get credit for two months for each one served In Japan unmarried or mar ried soldiers with their families will get credit for time actually served Married men whose families have not been with them subsequent to July 1 1950 will get credit for a month and a hall Within the far east command soldiers can request transfer to another unit aftertwo years In the case of a combat soldier this would mean he could apply for duty in Japan after 6 months Ridgway Breaks Off Truce

conservation conimis sion About 265 were served Senator Demands Probe of Academy Asks Congress Lookin at Grid OverEmphasis By EDWIN HAAKINSON Washington dismissal of 90 West Point cadets for cheatingin exams brought demands Saturday for con gressional investigation of the military ing its football activities Young RN Dak urged congress to probe the possibility that over emphasis on football led to the break down in the academys famed honor system Gen J Lawton Collins army chief of staff reportedly blamed such overemphasis Friday in telling lawmakers of the mass dismissals largest in the academys 149 year history Senators said he hinted that a ma jority of the academys game football players cheated on exams because football prac tice cut down their opportunities study West Point officials said the academy football team will plaj its fall schedule win or lose Too Much Laxity An investigation is in order and it should also cover too much laxity in conducting Young told a reporter Young is member of the official congres sional board of visitors which in spects the academy every year Rep Brooks DLa ranking member of the house armed serv ices committee said The academy should be cleaned from top to bot tom of all moral dishonesty If an faculty members are they should be fired involved However army sources said no faculty members at West Point were involved Rep Doyle DCal a mem ber of the congressional board ol West Point visitors said he would ask that the board investigate or least be given a full report Senator Byrd DVa acting as chairman of the senate armed services committee said he was particularly saddened by the af fair because the cadets are among the cream of the nations young men and the nations hope is for Its fine young men Many Students No congressman publicly critic ized the mass dismissal as too se vere But one lawmaker who would not permit use of his name There would not be many foot ton players in my state university or as far as that goes many stu dents if every person who cribbed in an exam was dismissed The dismissed cadets were ac cused of either giving or accept ing outside help to pass classroom tests during the past few years Senators said they were told 80 of the cadets had admitted break ing the honor code and that the others probably would face a martial or special trial to deter mine the guilt The army withheld the names of those dismissed to protect the mens futures The dismissals were made as general discharge rath er than dishonorable discharge which carries much greater stigma The army defined this as dis charge under honorable conditions service satisfactory soldier no qualifying for honorable dis charge An army spokesman said it was the honor system itself which ex posed the cheaters The action was initiated about 6 months ago bj the cadets own 25man honor committee after a tip from an un identified cadet The committees findings were passed on to a special board ap pointed by Collins It was com posed of Judge Learned Hand re cently retired from the U S court of appeals in New York Lt Gen Troy H Middleton new president of Louisiana State university and Viaj Gen Robert M Danford rc Lired a former president of the West Point Graduates association Broken UP Then Friday Collins called a meeting at the Pentagon of House Speaker Rayburn DTexas and a small group of hurriedly asscm jlcd senators Collins was de scribed as badly broken up as 10 Rave out the bad news President Truman who ap proved the dismissals was de scribed by an aide as very much concerned Some 1600 to 1700 cadets now at West Point were said to have been stunned by the action The academy has a total enrollment of 2520 Maj Gen Frederick Irving academy superintendent said the dismissals involved a serious breach of the West Point code of honor arid consisted of receiv ing improper outside assistance in academic work It was learned some of the ca dets would take an examination and then pass on the to those taking it later so they could cram for it Now on Leave About hall ot the cadets dis missed are now on leave and tele grams went out asking them to report back No action was taken against graduates accused in the affair Because they are commissioned of ficers Many have seen combat and some have been killed in Korea Secretary of Army Pace said I feel that there can be no compro mise in the maintenance of the high standards of conduct on which West Point was founded The honor code is the essence of West Point and must be main tained Some newspaper editors and others criticized the armys deci sion to withhold the names of the dismissed cadets Typical of the srotests was one by James S Pope managing editor of the Lou isville CourierJournal He said I am wiring a protest to Gen Collins on the ground it is grossly unfair to all students who may be eaving school to fall under suspi cion and urging him to release he names More in Red Cross Relief Drive Red Cross
