Secrets from the U'

Sharing secrets means
something different for LSA
senior Kara LaPlante than
for most students.
LaPlante created a stu-
dent group last fall called
Secrets from the U, which
is dedicated to allowing stu-
dents, faculty and staff to
share their personal secrets
anonymously through paint-
ing, sculpture or other forms
of art.
LaPlante said she hopes to
coordinate an exhibition in
April solely for artists who,
wish to remain anonymous.
"I have noticed that a lot
of my friends have expressed
they feel like no one else
could possibly be going
through the difficulties
and challenges they are,"
LaPlante said. "I believed

differently."
LaPlante said Secrets
from the U accepts anyone
on campus who wants to
express something about
themselves, and that they
would feel comfortable
doing so only in an anony-
mous forum.
Inspired by a similar con-
cept she had seen online,
LaPlante said a display of
anonymous art submissions
could highlight common
ground and connect the
often overwhelmingly large
campus community.
"My goal is to create a
more personal environment
and sense of belonging in
the campus community,"
she said.
Secrets from the U is
currently in the process of

compiling art pieces for its
first display and is hoping
for about 250 submissions.
LaPlante said the group
plans to set up a table with
information and resources
to address issues concerning
mental health and sexual
assault, among others, to
supplement the display.
With hopes of hosting an
exhibition each semester,
the club also has plans for
a website to showcase the
submitted artwork and a
fundraiser to allow Univer-
sity faculty, students and
staff to purchase the art.
LaPlante said the collected
proceeds would be given to
the National Hopeline Net-
work - a suicide prevention
hotline.

Navy faults leaders
.~ in gay hazing, probe-

4

Chief of Naval
Operations says more
should have been done
in investigation
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -
Leaders should have done more
to investigate numerous hazing
allegations against a gay sailor
and others in a unit stationed in
Bahrain several years ago, the
Navy said yesterday.
The Chief of Naval Operations
has sent a letter of counseling
to retired Vice Adm. Robert T.
Conway, the former Commander,
Naval Installations Command,
who was the final endorser of a
June 2007 investigation that has
been criticized for failing to be
thorough.
The letter notes that "more
should have been done to deter-
mine what officers in the chain
of command knew about allega-
tions of hazing and what actions
they took to address those allega-
tions," said Navy spokeswoman
Cmdr. Elissa Smith.
In Octoberthe Navyannounced

that the former leader of the
bomb-sniffing dog unit would be
removed and forced to retire after
the Navy reviewed allegations of
hazing and sexual harassment
against the gay sailor and others.
One of the hazing victims,
Joseph Rocha, said he decided
to leave the Navy in 2007 by tell-
ing his commander he was gay, in
violation of the military's "don't
ask, don't tell" policy. He had
been attending the U.S. Naval
Academy Preparatory School in
Rhode Island in hopes of attend-
ing the academy.
Rocha said he was tied to a
chair and left in a dog kennel,
hosed down while in uniform
and forced to simulate oral sex on
another sailor while in Bahrain.
The Navy in September was
reviewing its investigation of
more than 90 hazings between
2004 and 2006 in the Military
Working Dog Division at Naval
Security Force, Bahrain.
The former unitleader, Michael
Toussaint, is scheduled to appear
before a retirement grade deter-
mination board in Norfolk, Va.,
on Feb. 4, Smith said.
A letter of counseling also was

issued to Capt. Gary Galloway;
one of the unit's former com,
manding officers.
"The letter of counseling rein:
forces that when senior officers
observe conduct that is quese
tionable, they must act quickly
and firmly to verify the nature
and purpose of the activity and
ensure Navy policies prohibit-
ing hazing are strictly enforced,"
Smith said.
The Chief of Naval Operations
also has directed counseling for
eight other personnel named in
the investigation and has sent a
message to all flag officers rein-
forcing their role in ensuring
probes are thorough.
Rep. Joe Sestak, a Pennsylvania
Democrat and retired three-star
admiral, has pressed the Navy to
explore lapses in accountabilityin
the case. Sestak, who demanded
to know why Toussaint was later
promoted to senior chief after the
reports, applauded the decision
to expand the investigation.
"Only with the display of real 4
accountability will the men and
women serving believe in their
leadership," Sestak said in a
statement.
