·ras- Navy Secretary Bans Officer-Wife Ratings WASHINGTON W--Secretary of the Navy Fred Korth announced Thursday he has ordered elimination of i section In I'fitnns report that would rate officer-wife teams. Korth siid that. after reviewing the form:' "I have concluded that the proposed report will not produce the Information needed and may unnecessarily hurt the promotion chances of some officers who are exceptionally well qualified for sea and other duties not requiring special attention to the suitability 'of dependents for such assignments." Korth undertook the review neatly two weeks ago after there was a critical reaction to the section of the form which the Navy^aid was designed to provide essential information on the effectiveness of officer-wife teams at "representatives of the Navy and the nation on foreign stations." · · · · A NAVY SPOKESMAN SAID an effort will continue to be made to gather information on officers, but only on a case-by-case basis, by personal interviews written comments from commanding officers and like approaches. The fitness form for assessing the conduct and work of officers has been standard in the Navy for many years. When the new form was prepared recently it had been expanded to provide for comment by senior officers on the suitability of wives as well as junior officer-husbands in a team. Some Navy wives reacted indignantly and there were objections from Congress members. President Oral Polio Drug Is Hopeful n«. en*.
