After five months of study, a review panel investigating life at the U.S. Naval Academy has concluded there is no central flaw to explain years of scandal at the elite officer-training school.The findings, contained in a 30-page draft report described by sources who have seen it, vindicate an academy administration that has contended that a rash of unethical and criminal episodes involving midshipmen are isolated incidents and not the result of an underlying failure of school policy.The board has instead saved most of its criticism, which will be presented after Navy Secretary John H. Dalton clears a final report, for a permissive society that shapes future midshipmen before they arrive inside the academy walls.

Richard C. Allen, was scheduled to begin receiving case files yesterday. Meanwhile, academy officials were scheduled to start notifying accused midshipmen individually.The cases surrounding roughly 80 percent of those implicated in the scandal, which involved the distribution of advance copies of an exam given in December 1992, will be reviewed by the panel.

WHAT YOUR Jan. 13 editorial on the Naval Academy's independent review panel does not comment upon is the time taken for Academy Superintendent Charles Larson to finally support its creation or the respected people who are not members of this panel.Admiral Larson's resistance to a review dates back to Prof. James F. Barry's recommendations in May that Admiral Larson said contained little of value. Its first recommendations was the formation of the panel just formed.Eight precious months have been lost, during which time Admiral Larson personally caused further undue negative attention to be drawn to the Naval Academy by his inept handling of the tragic Zamora and Della Barba matters.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Wednesday that he plans to form a commission of experts outside the city department to review the death of Tyrone West, a move denounced by the head of the city's police union as "a way to placate the public" while undermining confidence in his officers' investigations. Batts spoke at a City Council hearing called weeks ago to probe delays in the release of autopsy findings in the July death of West, a 44-year-old man who police say died after fighting officers during a traffic stop in Northeast Baltimore.
