Congressman Dolllver is having oulty in getting a Tenth district boy who can be admitted to the Annapolis naval academy. At the recent exatn* lhation at Fort Dodge Rudolph Anderson of Forest Cil.y won. Ete has just failed to meet the requirements at the school. His friends say: The questions submitted were such as he could handle easily in his own wuy and time but it seems that a peculiar short method, taught only by schools in Annapolis, is the one by which candidates are judged and as a great majority of them never heard of It, but few are successful. Oat of 67 before, the board but seven passed, and among those turned down were not a few who had been coached in the private schools near the academy. Rudolph's average at the West Point examination last year as an alternate was 98; 12 points ahead of the principal, and there is every reason to believe he would have taUen equally high rank this year had other methods than those copyrighted by experts been allowed.
