Wert PointN Jwight D Eisenhowers son a II military academy English in tructpr said Friday his fatherunr oubtedly is as shocked as any ne else by the classroom cheat ing scandal involving 90 cadets Capt John S D Eisenhower a 9yearold crew cut blond said e and his father often had man aman talks about West Points honor code because the general a firm believer in the system Ij father and I used to talk about the honor code informally even before I entered West Point Eisenhower said Honor ip here means strictly honesty I dont see why every institu ion doesnt have an honor sys etn I know the University of Virginia has a good one He said he did not think the im ending dismissal of the cadets as at all drastic Neither did President Truman e said Thursday in Washington at the case was closed as far as the cadets facing dismissal were concerned He also ordered an investigation of athletic sys tems at West Point Annapolis and other service schools because many of the offenders were foot ball players Young Eisenhower a graduate of the West Point class of 1944 smilingly admitted he had re ceived more than my share of demerits while I was here espe cially during my plebe year but that he always felt the system a part of the code that made West Point great To illustrate how strictly the word honor is regarded at the academy he cited a story his fath r used to tell him My father told about one cadet in his class who tried to violate She honor system by quibbling1 but was caught and discharged anyway he said Thta particular cadet went honeback ridinr and while on the horse he wanted to light a cigaret but found he cotldnX Be not permitted to get off the hone except for a valid tea ton like having to chase his hat which nay have blown off and he knew It So he hat purposely caused it to blow off dismounted cot his bat back and lit his cigaret meanwhile When he returned from the trip he signed the usual state ment saying that he had not got ten off the horse except for a valid reason which of course was not so He was found West Points term for dismissal be cause someone saw him and re ported he had broken the honor code Eisenhower who instructs only plebes admitted that academics at the academy do place a burden upon athletes We can tell that he said be cause many of the athletes in our classes are always scraping bottom academically speaking BuV he hastily pointedout many athletes manage to do well in their studies and live by the honor code at the same time I s J Occasionally Jie received notes from staff offiwre behiridhinirBut said nothing J f The
