Our Petty Officers—Help Them to Help Us
(See page 1437, this issue)
Brigadier General George Richards, U. S. Marine Corps.—Lieutenant John Kennaday’s paper is a welcome contribution touching an important subject heretofore discussed at various times in the Proceedings of the Naval Institute and elsewhere.
At the summer conference of 1913 at the Naval War College a number of interesting papers on the qualities of military character, the means for their development, the methods for their employment, and the relations of loyalty and the spirit of initiative and of co-operation were presented. These were compiled at the time by then Commander, since Admiral, Frank H. Schofield, former Commander in Chief, U. S. Fleet, and are now published by the Bureau of Navigation.
