SEVEN CADETS DISMISSED AT WEST POINT FOR HAZING
Wheeling, W. Va., third class; Gor
don Lefebvre, Richmond, Va., third
class; Albert E. Crane. Hawarden,
Iowa, third class; Jacob S. Fortner,.
Doton, Ala., third class.
The action of President Taft and
Secretary Dickinson in directing the
dismissal of the cadets is accepted
by the officers of the array and the
civil officials of that department, as a
clear indication of the purpose of the
administration to fully support Col
onel Scott, the superintendent of the
United States Military Academy, in
his effort to eradicate the practice of
hazing in all its phases from student
life at the academy.
West Point, S. Y., Special. For
being involved in the hazing of Ro
lando Sutton, a brother of Lieut.
James X. Sutton, Jr., United States

polis two years ago has just been
investigated, seven West '"Point ca
dets were dismissed from the, United

West Point, N. Y. An order from
President Taft dismissing seven ca
dets from the United States Military
Academy was announced when the
cadets were assembled on parade.
The cadets were concerned in the
hazing of Cadet Rolando Sutton, a
brother of Lieutenant James N. Sut
ton, of the Marine Corps at Annapo
lis, a second investigation into whose
death resulted in the finding that
Lieutenant Sutton killed himself
either by accident or design.
The cadets dismissed are: John H.
Booker, Jr., of West Point, Ga., first
class; Richard. W. Hocker, Kansas
City, Mo., third class; Earle W. Dun
more, Utica, N. Y., third class; Chaun
cey C. Devore, Wheeling, W. Va.,
third class; Gordon Lefebvre, Rich
mond, Va., third class; Albert E.
Crane, Hawarden, Iowa, third class;
Jacob S. Fortner, Dothan, Ala., third
The action of the President upholds
the action of the board which investi
gated hazing at West Point, and of
Colonel Hugh L. Scott, Superintend
ent of the Academy.
On the morning of June 14 last, Ca
det Rolando Sutton, of the fourth or
"plebe" class, reported sick, and was
ordered to the hospital badly bruised
and suffering great pain. He did not
report for duty again until twenty
three days later, and his case imme
diately became a matter of concern
4to the upper classmen, when It was
seen that the authorities proposed to
dig to the bottom of it.
Before the board of investigation
which was immediately ordered, Sut
ton, true to the unwritten code of the
corps, proved a reticent witness. Sut
ton gave a comolete narrative of his
adventures on the night of June 13,
but professed to have been unable to
recognize any of his assailants.
Tbe board, whose report led to the
dismissal of the cadets, was presided
over by Lieutenant-Colonel Sibley,
with Captain Oscar J. Charles, of the
Seventeenth Infantry, an.d Cantain M.
F. Smith, of the Twentieth Infantry,
as members. It was in session al
most daily for over a month. During
this period 135 cadets were examined
under oath as to hazing conditions at
West Point this year.
On the night of the attack, for
which the cadets have been dismissed,
Cadet Sutton was walking on a lonely
post when a number of third class
men, dressed in white sheets, sudden
ly ran out of the woods and attacked
him with tent poles.
Sutton, who is an athlete, was on
the alert, and cucceeded in capturing
two of his assailants, but he was dis
abled by a blow from a tent pole af
ter he had beaten off three attaoks.
He was injured so seriously that he
was three weeks in the hospital.

The pair, accompanied by several
of their mutual friends, walked along,
just before sundown, until they
reached a point some distance below
the regular bathing grounds. The
life guards had gone off duty, but
that gave them no concern, because
both were strong and daring swim
mers. Entering the surf, both were
soon beyond the breakers.
"He's only making believe, " said
one of the little group on the shore,
when Lessig threw up his hands.
There were cries of alarm when Les- I

With breathless suspense their
friends watched Miss Paul approach
Lessig. She was seen to reach him,
and the two appeared to the watchers
to be working slowly toward shore,
but in a moment or two they were
submerged by a huge wave. When
they came up again into vision they
had drifted still further out.
The life savers launched a boat
and rowed with all their strength
toward the drowning pair. They had
hardly gone half way when Lessig
disappeared fQr the last time.
Miss Paul continued her unequal
battle in the rough water, but before
the boat reached her she, too, was
swallowed up by the ocean.
