Thirteen cadets of the Pennsylvania
Military College. Chester, have left
the institution, n pretest against the
expulsion of Hugh McCaffery, n back
en the college football team.
McCaffery, who lives iu Chester and
was a lieutenant Iu the endet corps,
was ousted yesterday for dlsebediance.
He bad been Instructed te renin In within
the college grounds Thanksgiving morn
ing, but "broke limits," taking three
ether cadets with ldtn.
As a result of bis expulsion, n group
of cadets, called scterciay at the office
of Colonel C. K. Hyatt, president of
the college, and asked for McCaffery's
reinstatement. They left the Institu
tion when the request wnH refused.
Eight of the eleven seniors at the
college were among these who left.
The five ethers were members of the
junior class. The frchmnn and
sophomore classes discussed a proposed
walk-out, hut decided te stand by the

While a majority of the cadets went

of the college, remained at the institu

Instead of reniniulng in the grounds

cadets with him. Fer this be was
charged wltn conduct prejudicial te geed

The specifications alleged in the
charge weje direct disobedience of
orders, unfaithful performance of duty
as a cadet officer and leaving cadet
lines without authority.
"I filed the charges against Mr. Mc
Caffery myself," said Colonel Hyatt.
"He is u likable Imy and was point peint
lar wilb the cadets and the faculty.
I have known him since be was ten or
eleven years old and it was bard for
me te take action against him, but thu
college cannot tolerate direct disobedi

"As for the boys who walked out I
feel that they will return; I hope they
will. If they give a satisfactory ex
planation for their action anil give a
guarantee of future geed conduct they
may be reinstated."
Colonel Hyatt said he realized that
bejs must be bejs and that it was
the policy of the college te rectify the.
mistakes made bv students. But disci
pline is absolutely essential, be added,
and must be upheld tit all costs.
