A8 Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, December 11, 1976 West Point Shake-Up Tied to Scandal make dismissal mandatory for minor infractions. A West Point spokesman said out of 3,818 cadets who voted on the penalty question Thursday, 2,523 favored scrapping mandatory explu-sion for code violations and 1,295 supported mandatory expulsion less than 1 per cent shy of the two- thirds majority need for reform. "I think the vote endorses their (the cadets') strong sense of commitment to the code and to the system as it now stands," the spokesman said. Sources said announcement of Ulmer's transfer was delayed until a successor could be named, an action requiring presidential approval.

According to some sources, the West Point superintendent, Lt. Gen. Sidney Berry, may also come under fire and might face transfer later as a result of that report and another by the Army's general counsel. One source said that although Berry was not as inflexible as Ulmer on the penalties issue, some critics say he spotted impending problems up to a year before the most recent cheating scandal, but did nothing about them. The honor system drew national attention last spring when more than 150 seniors resigned or were expelled after they were accused of cheating on a take-home computer examination. The honor code states: "A cadet shall not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do."

The sources said Brig. Gen. Walter F. Ulmer Jr. would leave his post as commandant of cadets for a troop assignment. An announcement is expected shortly. They said Ulmer's departure was prompted partly by congressional criticism of his rigid opposition to any changes in the West Point honor system, which requires dismissal from the academy for any violation. West Point cadets voted Thursday on whether the honor system should be softened to include milder penalties. A majority of the cadets voted for a change but the vote fell just short of the two-thirds needed to revise the penalty provisions. The unyielding position taken by Ulmer is expected to be criticized in the report of a panel headed by for- KKK Marines Case To Go Into Courts CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) - The American Civil Liberties Union's (ACLU) decision yesterday to file suit on behalf of Marine Corps members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) demonstrates the dilemma faced by the corps in trying to cool racial tension on this sprawling base. Civil rights officials have called for an investigation into whether military regulations sanction such groups. The ACLU is asking whether the corps is not discriminating against Klan members by transferring them to other bases. Attorney Michael Pancer, a past president of the ACLU's San Diego chapter, said a federal suit will be filed within two weeks. mm 6500 GEORGIA AVE. W.
