Forrestal Letter Exonerates Naval Officers in Brawl (Continued trom page 1) made against either of the officers involved, and none is pending." The Washington Times - Herald published Forrestal's letter to the Minnesota congressman in a copyrighted story. : The secretary's official letter comes on the heels of affidavits made by two women who allege that the two naval officers had made "unrepeatable remarks" about President Roosevelt. Joseph A. Padway general counsel of the AFL announced earlier that he is turning the two affidavits over to the senate committee investigating the incident. "Outright Lie" Lt. Randolph Dickins. Jr., one of the officers who fought in the Stat-ler battle, reached by telephone in Florida, said that the affidavits made by the two women were "outright lies."

K;,'lniiis Decision "In the first place, it should be understood that the question uf including or omitting reference lo the Stutter Hotel fight in news sent by 1 he Navy Department to its ships was decided without any reference to this office. The junior officer in charge of this service made tli-o decision on the following basis: "Incident of ihis kind involving naval personnel and civilians in hotels or elsewhere are not normally included in ships news. The only aspect of this particular occurrence which caused it to be prominently displayed in the newspapers was its possible political implications. Navy ships news has consistently refraiu-ed from carrying political news other than the announcement of the new presidential nominees. Exercis-j ing their editorial judgment, and in the light of this established practice, i editors of ships news decided to omit i any reference to t he incident. "So far as the mutter of invest!-1 gat ion by the Navy Department is concerned, there hs been none other than a routine investigation by the Shore Patrol.

"The army and navy demand that girls be over 20 years of age before they are accepted and that they be interviewed for maturity and personality qualifications," the official said. "Girls who are accepted know exactly what Iheir service 'will be like. "The Red Cross age limit varhs from 24 to over 25 aud applicants must have several personal interviews with experienced and mature personnel advisors. "Why doesn't the government settle down lo a steady policy of hirir.g mature workers instead of beating the bushes frantically for high school kids? Why not tell the j;irls and their parents clearly that the government assumes no responsibility for t hem and they are on their own? Why not give them an indication of exactly what their salaries will and will not do so that they will not expect too much?" tTh3tecon;tn ticles berjrriep this 1per I omorrow i .
