The staff has made an effort to break from the formality and stiffness of past Year Books. We feel that in doing so we have made a more interesting and informative annual. lt must be realized that in a Year Book for a Military Academy such as ours problems entirely different from those of a high school Year Book must be faced. It is necessary to conform to a certain standard and to some extent we are more confined than is a high school Annual Staff. However, we feel that we have overcome these difficulties, and present the contents of the following pages as proof. To those who leave the campus we hope it will be a book of pleasant memories. To those who remain, we hope it will set a standard for the future. VIEWS ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS MILITARY LOWER SCHOOL CLASSES Contents DR. WILLIAM E. HATCHER HE LIFE OF WILLIAM E. HATCHER was in itself a personification of Christian, brotherly love. The creed by which he lived-one of radiant, unselfish friendship- caused all who knew him to become his friend. A great lover of boys, he bent much of his time and energy toward encouraging and guiding them in whatever walk of life they planned to follow. Therefore, it is with a debt of gratitude for a great spirit that the Seniors of 'I942 dedicate this annual to Dr. William E. Hatcher, founder of this academy.

That would be hard to do, but there will remain with us always the memory ot his great spirit as it is daily reflected in the school. We, the senior class of '42, pause here to pay tribute to his lofty ideals that have inspired in us a respect for things spiritual, and a fuller under- standing of the value of constructive effort. Academic Q Department Among the faculty at Fork Union Military Academy there is distributed a liberal number of University Degrees of the higher brackets. A casual glance through the following pages will more than substantiate this claim. A startling array of colleges and universi- ties are represented in our exceptional faculty, and we are particularly fortunate in reaping the benefits of such a wide cultural and educational background. We live with our teachers as well as work with them, and, therefore, we feel that they are our friends and helpers, as well as our instructors. The seniors unite in wishing for them the best of success. When we think of Fork Union Military Academy we think of Col. N. J. Perkins, that kindly gentleman who helped us plan our course of action through our school days. We all owe our Headmaster a huge debt of gratitude for his untiring efforts and timely advice in the matter of solving the vital problems which have faced us during a critical period of life. COL. N. J. PERKINS, B.A., Dennison Uni versity, 25 years. 'I6 INCE the erection of our new Science Hall, which is the home of the four sciences: chemistry, physics, biology, and general science, the Science Department has become one of the most progressive units of our academic department. The wit of Capt. Stoutamire, in general science, the earnestness of Capt. Miles, in chemistry, the rich experiences of Capt. Moody, in physics, and the vivid display of charts and models in Capt. Hudgins' biology room, has done much to stimulate student interest in the Sciences. SCIE CE CAPT. KENNETH S. MILES, A,B., Lynchburg College, Chemisiry, 2 years. CAPT.

Headed by Maior Snead, the math department has applied pressure in the place where it is most urgently needed-the development of straight, clear thinking on the part of cadets. MAJ. E. J.

HIS is the one academic department that we all share in common. What cadet at Fork Union will not remember the incomparable experience of having been put through his paces in "readin' and writin"' under the thorough discipline of those seasoned veterans of the English department? Who will not have a better apprecia- tion for the riches of literature for having listened to Capt. Waldron's discourses upon the novel? Who will not find his mind keener after following Capt. Wildman into the labyrinth of grammatical detail and precision? Although most of the students remember Capt. Springer prin- cipally for his Latin, they are unanimous in praising him as the most thorough of the younger members of the faculty. The English department has been blessed recently by the addition of Capt. Hart, former pastor of a church in New York. E GLISH l CAPT. HARRY M.

I9 ANGUAGES HERE is a distinct variation in the teacher personalities of our language department. Capt. Garden brings to his French classes ' the sophistication and savoir-faire of the widely-travelled man-of- the-world. Capt. Lunsford, on the other hand, brings to his students of Spanish the perspective of a retiring scholar. Capt. Payne, fresh from experiences in public school work, contributes enthusiasm for the language of the ancient Romans. Capt. Daniel concludes that what cannot be imparted to his classes during the regular period should be administered between the hours of ten and twelve on Saturday night. CAPT. LINWOOD E.

Here we are initiated into the secrets of the red and black by that master bookkeeper, Capt. Showalter. Capt. Reichenbach expounds to us carefully the intricacies and more particularly the pitfalls of business law, lest we fall victim to the financial wolves in sheep's clothing that wait without to take advantage of our inexperience and innocence. On the higher plane of theory, Capt. Stinnett awaits to initiate us into the workings of that mysterious machinery which turns the wheels behind our big bustling confusion of modern finance and industry. Meanwhile, if you should happen to have a love letter or a post-due theme which needs to be thrown together in a hurry, drop by the typing room at your convenience. CAPT H. F.

HISTORY ERE outside the very gates of Bremo and Monticello, and iust around the corner from the University of Virginia, where the ghosts of the Cavaliers still hold forth, we find ample inspiration in our study of history. Those of us fortunate enough to get a day leave to Richmond are impressed with this distinctive old town where people are still fighting the "Wah" Between the States, and where Lee, Jackson, and Stuart still ride in spirit and in bronze. The ideal leader of our expeditions into the past is Capt. Stafford, who, as our respected professor of American History, helps us to understand the meaning of such a fine heritage, and value the traditions which all of us must fight to preserve. Capt. Pittman, Virginia Gentleman of Old-School culture brought fresh from the University at Charlottesville, lends to the department exactly the spice of reality that is needed. In order that we may not brood too much over our own civilization, Capt. DeVette, from his native Florida, land of bubbling springs and perpetual youth, speaks, as from an oracle, of times long past when legion fought against phalanx and worlds were conquered and lost.

Crockett Major Crockett is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute. He began his career here in 1931 as an instructor in our dear old Mathematics Department. After teaching math for four years, he began mending our ways--by carefully taking a stitch in time. In other words, at that time 119347, he became our Commandant. Since then he has made lasting friends of even the most persistent "Star Reporter." He is fair and square and, like all men who understand boys, he gives us the benefit of the doubt. We, the class of '42, wish him the best of luck in what we hope will be many years of service to the school. CAPT. E. A. PAYNE Assistant Commandant 24 CAPT. IRVING A.

To observe how fully their efforts are appreciated one has only to cast a roving eye over the dining hall during meal time. Another person behind the scenes is a friend of all the cadets and personnel connected with the Academy-a man whom we all know as iust "John." ln case of anything from a "blackout" to a cold radiator we iust look up John Hurt.

McCLELLAN Managing Editor SKIRMISHER STAFF Cole, McClellan, Chapman, Anderson, Morgan, linden, Ward, Seymour, Hutch, Meredith, Campbell HERE IT IS! The book you have heard cmd talked so much about. A real year book to be kept as a memento of your student days at Fork Union Military Academy. We have spared no effort in capturing and depicting life as lived by you cadets here in school. We hope that this Year Book will be an inspiration to others who will compose the staffs of future year books. The editor and the assistant editor take this occasion to thank their associate editors down to their faithful office boy, Mr. Rountree, for their cheerful and willing cooperation in the compilation of this opus. Capt. Hudgins was the backbone of the staff, and it was his constant efforts that kept alive the spirit of work during the trying times before and after holiday sprees. Captains Stoutamire, Richenbach, Daniel, Pittman, Springer, and Garden have been most cooperative as occasion demanded. 33 SABRE STAFF Campbell, Lynch, Wood, McClellan, Seymour, Kane, Morgan, Meredith, Christensen, Isabel, Capt. Wildman The Sabre Early this session Captain Wildman organized the Sabre staff for the session of 1941-1942. Campbell was elected Editor-in-Chief, Lynch, Editor, Wood, T., Make-up Editor, Morgan, E. D., Military Editor, Seymour, Sports Editor, McClellan, Campus Editor, and Madeira, Lower School Reporter. After the organization of the staff was completed the boys got right down to business and published the first edition two weeks later, and every second week since then a new edition of the Sabre has been dropped at the door of every cadet. Those who are not too familiar with the makeup of our paper may be interested in a brief summary of what happens before the Sabre goes to press. First, the staff is called together and given their assignments for obtaining news. Next, the news is obtained in the easiest form possible, typed up, and handed in to the Editors who see that every assignment is submitted in the proper form and at the proper time. From the Editors the news goes to Captain Wildman, who makes the final check in order to see that as few mistakes as possible are made. Captain Wildman turns the copy over to the Make-up Editor who places it in consolidated form on a dummy which is sent to Charlottesville to be printed. After the first copy is printed it is sent back to the school where it receives the final okay. The printer then makes the required number of copies and sends them to the school where the Cadet Corps receives the paper the evening it arrives. The Sabre staff has been complimented on its publication of the paper throughout the year, and particularly on the Alumni Issue released on February 3, 1942. This edition, the largest ever published by the school, contained twelve pages of pictures and news. 34 Camera Club As the Skirmisher goes to press, the first effort of the year is being made by students and faculty with photographic interests to organize a camera club. There was such a group on the campus last year and to them we are indebted. First, we are glad to inherit the basement of "C" Section which last year's club improvised as a darkroom. Then, too, we are happy to have a nucleus of men whose interest in photography was stimulated by the former group. Among the latter, especial mention should be made of Cadet Magee, whose proficiency in developing and printing, along with generous giving of his time, has been of great help to the stat? of the Skirmisher. Captains Hunt and Lunsford, who worked with last year's club, and Captain Hart, who has been riding his camera hobby for several years, will work with us as we carry out our program which includes lectures, discussions, field trips, darkroom work, and club exhibits.

The Society has had many interesting debates led by Lubanko and Kane, stalwarts carried over from last year. Questions such as Lowering the Draft Age to Eighteen, Sea Power ls Inferior to Air Power, and Poverty Is More Beneficial Than Wealth have been heatedly argued between the two societies. The climax of these discussions was the first session inter-society debate. Using the controversial question of Sea Power vs. Air Power, it turned out to be a first-class struggle, the like of which has not been seen since the days of Haws, Van Horn, and Corkan. After much discussion the judges awarded the decision to our opponents, the Ciceronians. Capt. Waldron and Capt. DeVette have done much to bring forth good readers and declaimers. That their labor has brought forth results of the superlative degree was shown when the Society heard the readings and declomations of Cadets Rawls, Jenks, Magee, and MacPherson. Many other cadets have taken parts in the meetings, and all have benefited greatly. The Society is looking forward with keen anticipation to the next debate, and the time when we will be represented in the State Debate held at Charlottesville under the direction of the University of Virginia. Last year we could not participate because of Government Inspection, which fell on the same day, but, nevertheless, we took the championship in Spelling and Reading. The Athenian Literary Society is indeed an organization to be proud of, it has maintained its traditions, kept its colors clean, and added many laurels to the school. We look for the future to be as bright as the past. The results of the year's work will be shown at the Commencement Debate, when the cream of both Societies will meet to thresh out any question of national or international importance. That, too, is another date that we will await with interest. 37 Ciceronian Literary Society VAUGHAN Vice-President Ailstock Anders Barnwall Bouse Brown Bonner Freeman Fry Getz Gilmer Harding Harris Hassell Herndon, Herndon Hodgson Isabel I R.

E. 38 Last fall when the Ciceronians were first called together it was found the Cadet Corps was very interested in literary work. About thirty-five cadets ioined the Ciceronians. Everyone was anxious to begin working on debates, readings, and declamations. Campbell was appointed President, Vaughan, Vice-President, McClellan, Secretary, and Munce, Sergeant-at-Arms. The subiects for debate were varied and interesting. "That Seapower is More Important Than Airpower," "That Poverty is More Beneficial Than Wealth," "That Labor Unions Should be Discouraged," were a few of these topics. All of the cadets were interested in the programs as witnessed by the large numbers which turned out for them. Many star debaters made the debates more interesting. Barnwall's fiery oratory, Hassell's probing questions, and Campbell's convincing rebuttals have made the programs. For a while, one of our best debaters was ill, but he, Wood, E., is now preparing for the contest at the University of Virginia with the other debaters. The State Championships at the University have attracted large numbers of contestants from all over the State. Last year the cadets could not participate in the debating because of Government Inspection, but Cadet McClellan won the State Reader's Contest for Private Schools. This year we hope to take part in all of the programs. Naturally, we are all looking forward to the Annual Literary Society Contest at Commencement. ln the two debates between the literary societies this year the Ciceronians have triumphed on both occasions. This has given us confidence, and we are hoping to conquer the Athenians and even the score, for they have won the cup for the past several years. 39 Dramatic Club Among the new clubs which came into existence this year, the Dramatic Club stands out as one of the most active groups in school. Under the able direction of Capt. Lunsford and Capt. Herring who were assisted by McClellan fPresidentj, Richer, A. CVice-Presidentj, and Morgan fSecretaryD, the would-be Thespians of Fork Union blossomed out to present enter- tainment for the Cadet Corps. "Dress Reversal," a farce, was put on early in December after weeks of practice. This play was a great success, and the cadets responded with shouts of approval. A minstrel show, replete with songs and chorus, will be given early in the spring.

We would go so far as to say that the Orchestra is the top musical organization on the campus, without fear of much argument on the point. Under the leadership of Capt. "Benny" Herring, if he will pardon this writer for being so informal, the boys manage to keep the spirits up and the blues down with "live on the solid side." 42 Y.M.C.A. BRADFORD President JONES MCCLELLAN Vice-President Secretary LYNCH Sergeant-at-Arms When the call for Y.M.C.A. members went out in the fall, about twenty- five cadets ioined the club. Cadet Bradford was elected President, Jones, Vice-President, McClellan, Secretary, and Lynch, Sergeant-at-Arms. Capt. DeVette was the faculty advisor until he was called into the service. Capt. Lunsford then took over and directed the activities of the club. For some time the members collected old papers to sell. ln this manner they obtained money to use in their projects. A banquet is being planned at which Maior Crockett and Col. Edens will be guest speakers. This banquet will be held some time in the spring. Mays Bailey Morgan, E. Hastings, O.

It has been said by military leaders that the non-commissioned officers are the backbone of a military organization. Taking this to be true we present on this page the "backbone" of the Cadet Corps from the First Sergeants right on down the line to the Corporals, each doing his iob in the Battalion to the best of his ability and thus helping to make as fine a Corps as Fork Union has ever seen.

Battles they were, for the Cadets suffered more physical iniuries in this season's games, probably, than in any since the first team in i906 played in tattered overalls and padded sweaters. Overshadowing these physical mishaps were the excellent exhibitions of classic football by the men of Fork Union. The Blue and Red fighters attacked their 1941 adversaries for Fork Union's thirty- fifth year of football with Coach "Rosie" Thomas training the maneuver unit for his eleventh year, and Coach Hunt preparing the holding force for his fourth season. "Tried material" was a phrase scarcely known to this gathering of dynamic power and fleeting speed-Co-Captains John Baldasano and "Doc" Post being over a fourth of the number of former team members present in the lineup for preliminary training. Only persistent training could coordinate the thirty-five potential football heroes into a precision unit. Therefore, these men of brawn endured their two weeks of preliminary training before the opening of the Academy and the grueling pre-game training throughout the season all for our Alma Mater-and a few tour privileges. The recruits, COACH THOMAS COACH HUNT 52 POST BALDASANO, J. MISS ESTELLE JAFFE Sponsor who were called on to fill almost every position because of the insufficiency in the number of past defenders of the Blue and Red on the football field, showed promise of being capable men. This was due, probably, to the experience gained on the teams of their high schools, not to mention the excellent drilling given to them by Fork Union's coaches. That is why all Big Red rooters looked forward with gleaming eyes to the desire of all prep schools in Virginia-to play in the Tobacco Bowl. With obvious uncertainty but energetic determination the Blue and Red gridders opened their campaign by night under the lights in Baltimore against o formerly unconquerable foe, the Fighting Eleven of Baltimore City College. Coach Thomas's 'l94'l creation spent the first half testing its legs on strange grounds and against o tough crew, falling once to allow their host to lay one down on pay dirt, but the VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM 53 all-important extra point, which so often decides the outcome of a game, was unsuccess- ful. After thus receiving a black eye, the Fork Union team found itself and hit back hard in the last five minutes of the game when John Baldasano threw a pass to brother Fred who crossed into the end zone, tieing up the game. Then, amid a roaring and somewhat tense crowd, came the ioyful end of the game, as John Baldasano with his new rubber kicking toe put the pigskin through the uprights, bringing City ColIege's long winning streak of 48 games to a resounding close. The next camping ground for the Blue and Red warriors was Blacksburg, home of the V. P. I. Cadets. There they met a gigantic army of sixty-five V. P. I. underclassmen, hitting with the force of a mechanized division and having the fortitude of a cavalry mule. But despite this forceful opposition, the gallant men from Fork Union held their opponents until the third period, when a sprinting V. P. I. Cadet took one out of the air and went over unmolested for a tally, and completed an extra point try. Coach Thomas's performers, not to be so easily defeated, redoubled their assault on the V. P. I. line, and John Baldasano accounted for a touchdown and conversion. The rest of the game became a battle to the end of two able teams trying desperately to make those last minutes decide in their favor. But to no avail, for the game ended a deadlock. The Cadets had now tasted of victory and tie, defeat, only, being unknown. The question in the minds of every Fork Union rooter was, what would the future hold? Next on the list was the mysterious William and Mary Freshman team which in two practice games had defeated that school's renowned varsity, one of the best college teams in Virginia. To top it off the Frosh eleven at Williamsburg was composed of a number of former wearers of the Blue and Red ierseys. The Cadets arrived in Williamsburg prepared for the battle, but here was truly a tough band to break. The W. and M. Frosh outplayed from the beginning the mighty but unseasoned Red eleven. Late in the half the College Freshmen stepped over for the first score. After slowly forcing the gallant cadets back, the men from Fork Union put their noses to the ground and threatened the mighty freshmen, but the power to score was lacking. Again a Williamsburg player went over before the brave fighting Cadets could recover. From there on, Hunt's defensive wall held, but the game was lost. Fork Union had tasted its first defeat, but not without obtaining some valuable experience from a powerful and capable enemy. This experience no doubt helped in defeating their great opponent in Richmond, the Optimist Club. This was a light but decisive semi-pro team from which Coaches Thomas and Hunt expected and got some high-powered resistance. l - l s c BUCCIONI GLADIS SIEMBACK KUNKIEWICZ 54 After a few "feeler" plays, Post tucked the pigskin under his arm and strolled into the end zone to strike the first Blue and Red blow, to which John Baldasano added a little pain with a successful conversion. The Optimist tried hard to stop this rolling Red machine, but the accelerator was on the floor and John Baldasano dashed into the end zone for the second tally and the extra point. From there it seemed to be a pushover, but the O. C. players took advantage of this Fork Union day-dreaming, and twice, before the sand was out of their eyes, had placed the ball on the diagonally- striped side of the goal line. The extra point, however, was no good. After having blotted Fork Union's 1940 pigskin schedule with a high-score defeat, Greenbriar Military School of West Virginia planned to give an exhibition for their Parent's Day by re-enacting their former victory. Little did they know that a squad of determined lads from Fork Union were out for revenge with some new items in their bag of tricks. But after a series of crushing ground attacks ending with Joe Leonard stepping over the goal line with the ball, the men in green thought that their opponents must have had a few baby tanks in the line-up. With his usual ease, John Baldasano put the ball through the uprights to add to their embarrassing situation. Greenbriar then took to the air, but with poor results, for Coach Thomas' aerial defense killed almost every attempt. The Big Red Team, trying to make the situation worse by twice coming within close scoring range on ground plays, kept the wavers of the green pennants shuddering until the ball was lost on downs. Thus the game ended with many a Greenbriar student trying pointlessly to explain to "mom and dad" the off day that had caused their team's defeat, while the Blue and Red rooters marked another opponent off the list. Blackstone Military Academy was next on the '41 schedule, but that school had not opened as expected. In place of this game an arrangement was made with Portsmouth Apprentice School as a "breather" before meeting the University of Richmond Frosh. The "breather" was to be the first home game with a review parade by the Cadet Corps. Under the cover of a dust screen the Blue and Red Force rained a barrage of blows on the heavier but less experienced team from Portsmouth. John Baldasano struck a death blow by throwing a pass to Fred Baldasano who went over the goal line. Kunkeiwicz then added strength to this rapid offensive when he put the ball down in the end zone for the third Fork Union tally. Again Fork Union scored as Guepe made a beautiful 35-yard dash into the land of plenty. Next, Cale took a Portsmouth pass out of the air and made the final score. The end of the game found a bewildered BALDASANO, F. BULLOCK GLISSON LEONARD 55 Apprentice team holding the very short end of a 39-0 victory for the Cadets. Having drawn the winning cards in the past three games, the men from Fork Union looked beyond their next encounter with the Freshmen from the University of Richmond toward the fight of the season with Massanutten Military Academy. Perhaps they looked too far, for the men from Virginia's capital were not to be under-estimated: After a series of lazy punts by both participants, Richmond made a serious threat. They took the ball to the Blue and Red one-foot mark. There Coach Hunt's holding force was called on to show what it was made of, and it did him honor. lt held against two waves of power until a fumble was recovered. From there Thomas' Gridsters brushed the smoke out of their eyes and proceeded to apply the high pressure. Post made a story-book-forty-yard broken-field return, and Kunkeiwicz sent one air mail to Hatton who went over. The last play was called back for off-sides. Fate frowned and drew a curtain of darkness across the field. The game ended in a scoreless deadlock. Father Thomas drew his flock to his breast and promised to have them better prepared to meet their deadliest opponent, Massanutten. This was to be the most important game of the season-a battle between the two strongest teams in the conference, with the coaches of both teams combining magic with ammunition trying to produce a combination of human dynamite. Little did they guess that their creation would have almost the effect of the genuine article. A special train took the Cadet Corps to Charlottesville. A parade preceded the game, bands played, and cheers rang from the crowd when the men in Red trotted onto the field, and the game began. Second play: Hank Hatton, after attempting a pass, lay on the field with a broken ankle. Everyone was disappointed, for we had expected to see Hank give an exhibition of his Tipton kicking training. As a sort of revenge, "Doc" Post made another of those runs that only he can make, stopping only for goal and tally. The tension was too great for the extra point to be good. Kunkiewicz threw a beautifully completed pass to Fred Baldasano for the second shaft in pay dirt. This time the magic toe of John Baldasano worked with micrometer precision. As soon as Massanutten had recovered from this whirlwind they set up a little storm of their own, but it was futile. Hunt's bulwarks held before a seemingly irresistible force, and William's kicks always returned the ball deep into Massanutten territory. The final horn ended a real contest with a battered but victorious collection of Blue and Reds being cheered by their fellow cadets for one of the most exciting games ever seen. lt was a shattered but strong-hearted team that pitched tent in Staunton on HATTON MOORE 56 Thanksgiving Day to combat the well-known and future State Championship team of Staunton Military Academy. After meeting stubborn opposition on ground attacks, Fork Union's "Whitey" Kunkiewicz, the man with the dream pass, dropped the floating leather into the waiting arms of Fred Baldasano, who went to the one-yard line before stopping. There the quarterback called upon the driving power of big Joe Leonard to put the ball where it counted. Mintz added the extra point. Tanner of Staunton then took a pass over in retaliation, while a successful conversion brought the game to a deadlock. Again and again the ball neared both goal lines only to be stopped cold by those wonderful lines of each team. Finally one slipped by the undermanned Blue and Reds-another score for the host. ln vain Thomas's crew tried to come back with an aerial attack, but the end of playing found Fork Union on the short end of 7 to 13 score. To complete the season was the game with Augusta Military Academy. And an exciting game it was, for the bandaged but mighty Blue and Red Eleven, made doubly dangerous by its last defeat, was out for a kill. After a weak start the Cadets from Fork Union trampled over their opponents to make first tally, Leonard carrying the ball and making an excellent conversion. Business was at hand for the men in Red, and their passing, their running, their kicking, all seemed to click like the works of an expertly-designed machine. Surprise! "Baby" Glisson, center, intercepted a pass and lashed a barrier-filled sixty yards to the goal line for another touchdown. Leonard provided the extra point. But this was not the end of Fork Union's bid for glory. Mintz dropped a short pass to a charging Ventura, who brought the score keeper more card trouble. Augusta made another attempt, but was stopped by that line of muscle which had held so admirably all season. With only minutes of play left, "Blue Boy" Roberts, on the receiving end of a Mintz pass, flashed over for the last score of the game and season, leaving the statistics 27-0 in favor of the Blue and Red from Fork Union. It was a truly heroic end for a magnificent season of thrilling ball play. A magnificent season it was, Fork Union's Warriors had just come through one of the most arduous of schedules with a record of six victories, two defeats, and two ties. They had beaten Baltimore City College, Optimist's Club, Greenbrier, Massanutten, and Augusta, falling only before the mighty William and Mary Frosh and, in a weak moment, giving in to Staunton's championship team. V. P. I. and U. of R. Freshmen contributed the only deadlocks for the Cadet's 1941 record. Well, it's all in the distant past now. "Hank" is out of his plaster cast at last, and "Whitey" is enioying a vacation. Some of the boys are amusing themselves with other sports, others doze peacefully over math and history books and dream of frosty air and falling leaves and flying pigskin. As this Chronicle draws to a close, while the dust is settling upon the shoulder pads and moleskins, let us pause and place the laurel upon the brows of Coaches Thomas and Hunt, who gave to Virginia's All-State Prep Team six men--monopolizing the honors with more men than any other school. The men to receive the honor were: Fred Baldasano, left end, Buccioni, left tackle, Siemback, right guard, Bulluck, right tackle, Post, left halfback, and Leonard, fullback. John Baldasano, Gladis, Glisson, Kunkiewicz and Lee received honorable mention, thus adding length to the smiles on our coaches' faces. Yes, it was, indeed, a successful season. 57 Taylor, Seiferth, Longobucco, Ventura, Moyer, Ailstock, Balclasano, Pitts, C., Williams, G., Powers, Glisson, Moore Varsity Basketball The wintry winds of January 6 hardly dimmed the warm anxiety that filled the atmosphere within the gym. Only the hearty voice of Coach Thomas seemed to blend melodically into the scene. Thirty or more stately cadets were getting their initial instruction for the gruelling basketball season ahead, and of this number only four of last season's stars could be seen. Jack Seiferth was getting in some long shots, the Baldasano brothers, varsity football rankers, were tossing a few, while the small but dangerous forward Harry Moore laid one up. All the promise of the first days training proved the truth of the saying: "Today's youths, tomorrow's stars." The spacious gymnasium of Fork Union has been the setting of many a hard- fought basketball game. This year it was to be repeated, for eager contestants poured in daily to reap the benefits of the able coaching of Coach "Rosy" Thomas and Assistant Coach Payne. Years of service and experience had taught both men the art of the game, and what is equally as important: the knowledge of good sportsmanship and gentlemanly courtesy. Forty-two's squad was acutely aware that instruction was not the only essential that was needed to build a good team. They knew that strict cooperation between coach and player and between player and player was absolutely essential for a successful season. All this was in the minds of the squad when they set to work. Day after day of never-ending practices soon brought about great improvements. The middle of January-and a new Red and Blue creation took the floor against their host, St. Christopher. Fighting for every possible point, and using every available ounce of strength, the Cadets dribbled their way through for 23 points. However, this was not enough to cover the Saints. Denied the honor of victory by the narrow margin of two points, the Fork Union players returned home with the consolation that they had tried hard. 58 Discouragement was a word that did not fit into the picture at this point, far from it, for Staunton Military Academy on the following week was the first to bow. Speed, experience, and dynamic force were contributing factors in the adversaries' defeat. With perfect assistance from able accompanists, Seiferth and Williams led epoch-making plays to a resounding 36-25 triumph. The first snow of winter was lazily finding its way to the campus when Fork Union accepted its next two invitations. The first was up-state with the Hampden- Sidney Freshmen. Coach Thomas had drilled perfectly on offense, and deception and lightning speed enabled F. U. M. A.'s five to crush their powerful opponents with a 33-30 victory. This conquest in the bag, the Cadets moved on to accept the second challenge. Greenbriar, however, was so overpowering that our boys were forced to play defensive ball, and Fork Union came out on the short end of a 32-21 score. After a rest of eight days, the Cadets returned to the court and exhibited an effective and varied offense. Pitts took the position of general, tossing 22 points into the ring, leading his teammates on to squeeze out the Massanutten Cadets 46-45. Straying away from home again the Blue and Red Cadets visited St. Benedictine. The swirling start of Fork Union caught the cadets off their guard. Piling up 11 timely points in the first quarter was unfortunately not enough, for St. Benedictine returned to counter attack with hard and vicious blows. The opponent's 33 points were too much for our boys who bowed out with a score of 22. Although losing some hard-fought games the Cadets have proven themselves able and worthy opponents on the hardwood court. They fight hard and clean, and whether they carry away the laurels or not they thoroughly enioy putting up a scrap. No better evidence is needed for this than the game with Hargrave. lt was an inspired team that held out so gamely against their powerful foe. There they were, five men acting, playing, feeling, thinking, and scoring together. The 19-18 lead at the half was proof enough of this. Nevertheless the Blue and Red's first burst of speed took too much out of them, and Hargrave came from behind to win by the narrow margin of two points as the referee's whistle signalled the end of the game. Fork Union next iourneyed to Newport News where it encountered the local high school. The Cadets tried hard but they were again deprived of victory. Fighting from behind after being snowed under the first half the Cadets amassed only 21 points to the Typhoon's 36. Emerging from the former entanglement the Fork Union Soldiers plunged head- long into battle the following afternoon with the William and Mary Freshmen. The score in this game showed only one thing, the power of the William and Mary Frosh. The Blue and Red Squad fought desperately to overcome their opposition. Showing new vitality in the second half the Cadets gave evidence of a rally, but it was of no avail. The undefeated Papooses of Williamsburg swamped Fork Union by 19 points. Valentines Day, afforded little time for the basketteers of Fork Union to join in traditional frolic. Instead they were upholding their own tradition of sportsmanship by handing a defeat to Virginia Episcopal School. The two mighty prep school teams began a battle that was well worth seeing. From the first second it was packed with spectacular plays and balanced action. There were no outstanding stars on either side, every man playing an equally fine game. The hoop literally vibrated from glancing tries. The backboard seemed to take life as it repelled shot after shot. Fork Union gained a small lead in the first quarter and at the half they still clung to it desperately. The third quarter did not, however, find V. E. S. asleep. Arousing with renewed strength, they tied up the score. Tally after tally gave room for suspicion that there might be an extra period. To the contrary this was not necessary, 59 for the Cadets drove on to a five-point lead. With this Valentine Day of woe the Virginia Episcopal School squad returned home defeated by a 40-45 score. As in football, history repeated itself in basketball. Fork Union once more visited Staunton. The clamor of home support no longer boosted the F-U-M-A Cadets on their way. Nothing remained except an empty feeling inside, but there was one consideration that was uppermost in their minds. This was that the Cadets at home would be proud of them-win, lose, or draw. With this whirling in their brains the Fork Union bearers strove to overcome the great odds. The team that Staunton produced seemed to be a vastly different team from the one that had ventured to Fork Union. Whether this was due to being at home would be hard to say. With never-dying spirit the Fork Union squad upheld its name splendidly. Staunton was no push over in anyone's league, and the invading Cadets soon discovered this fact. Hard fighting presented itself to be increasingly prevalent on both sides, but Fork Union was downed. The apparently new Staunton team walked off with 63 points to F. U. M. A.'s 35. With well over half the season behind them the Fork Union squad was determined to better their record by winning a good share of the remaining games. Disappoint- ment in the form of Woodberry Forest was to down their high spirits. Meeting their opponents on a strange court the Fork Union boys began a slow, discouraging battle. Neither side seemed to be able to produce the much-needed points. Time wore on ever so slowly but the Cadets still pressed on, intent upon a victory. This was beyond all hoping, for Woodberry Forest managed to slip in the margin of two points above Fork Union's 25. This period in '42's season was a grievous one. Although the odds against winning the State championship were great, there were still hopes, but not for long. The honor was awarded to Hargrove Military Academy, while Fork Union still had a number of games before them. Tense and motionless he stood there, this one shot would mean victory or defeat. From mid-court a Fork Union cadet let fly the fatal ball. It bounded to the backboard, and then paused on the rim of the basket only to fall harmlessly to the floor-a dramatic moment in the Augusta vs. Fork Union game. The Fork Union squad had once before met disappointment at the hands of Augusta. The game had started well in F. U. M. A.'s favor. Even at the end of the first quarter the Blue and Red Cadets had 22 points to their credit. Showing smartly their technique as basketball performers, the home cadets gave the spectators a welcome eyeful. There continued to be a great amount of scoring by both sides, but neither seemed to gain a large lead over his opponent. Burning their bridges behind them, Fork Union made one last attempt to even up the score, and this was lost. Downed once-downed twice, but this time the score showed considerable improvement. The Fork Union host honorably bade their guests farewell and made themselves content with the 48 points they had won, to the 5'l points Augusta had received. Military champions for the State of Virginia meant no more than a name. That was the general attitude of the Fork Union squad toward Hargrave. Anyway it proved to be at the first of the game that was played on the Blue and Red court. A fast start counted for many of their points in the early minutes. Even at the half F. U. M. A. held their lead, and continued to account for a good deal of scoring. Hargrave did not lay idly aside, but they, too, were intact with the basket. ln fact, Hargrove was able to find six points that Fork Union could not find. These odd points were the keys of Hargrave's 4'l-35 victory. The last game of the season was won, on the 28th of February, from Benedictine of Richmond. 60 lr 1 Baseball Way back in 1941 Coach Thomas had given Fork Union fair reason to believe that his baseball team would be a championship club, for the sluggers from Fork Union were knocking them in the stands and defeating their opponents right and left. Alas, after a knock-out game, they dropped the deciding game to Staunton Military Academy's Doc Savage, a strong right-handed pitcher. This year we have due reason to believe that the F. U. M. A. Baseball Club will come out of the 1942 horsehide encounters in that number one position. Pow! Ah, that sound of a hard thrown ball hitting in a new mit. To fans this sound announces the start of the season, but to Coach Thomas' pitchers it means plenty of gym work, loosening the old pitching arm. Yes, the diamond players of Fork Union are ushering in spring with some early practice for the 1942 diamond season. Later the bags will be put out and the sluggers will resin their hands and start that swinging that will be putting some hot-shot pitcher back in his dugout. New gloves will be broken in to catch those steaming balls in the infield that make the double plays. Yes, Fork Union will be preparing for a real slugging season. On the field this year will be, as always, only a very few former team members, but Coach Thomas will have a number of high school veterans to fill in the blank spots. On the mound will be last year's lefties, Pitts and Ellis, and four new men on Fork Union's diamond, Williams, Barbee, Shonnard, and D'Andreas, all right-handers. Behind the mask will be "Whitey" Kunkiewicz, the dead-eye passer of the past football season, and Privette, J., both former high school catchers. At first will be Cale, a sharp-eyed lad who has shown himself well in past Fork Union ball seasons, and Longobucco, a newcomer to the squad. Out on the far end of the diamond, Doc Post and Seiferth will be battling for the position at second. Johnson, V., Roberts, and Taylor will take turns at holding down third base. Glisson, Griffith, and Seimback will be picking them up from the shortstop position, thus completing the infield line-up. 61 Some excellent ball handling and eye-catching plays should be seen on this part of the diamond. Way out in the outfield the loffers are expected to get the ole' rawhide up and in, but fast. Football Co-Captain John Baldasano will be covering left field with an eagle eye. Center field will be taken by Fred Baldasano and Hodgson. "Rock" Johnson, a hard-hitting batter, will be roaming in right field. Of course, there will be reserves and others out for the team, but at this writing they are unknown. Captains of the team will be that long, lanky boy that puts the old apple down the middle from the left-hand side, "Lefty" Pitts and that terror at the plate, "Rock" Johnson. Coach Thomas's assistant is, as in football, Coach Hunt. The usual number of bat boys and disagreeing fans compose the remainder of Fork Union's contribution to the State Military School League. Junior Varsity Basketball Ever since 1932 Fork Union has produced excellent Junior Varsity basketball teams. The most successful season during this period was probably '40, That year the J. V.'s totaled 427 points to their opponents 248. Quite a record for a basketball team of any kind. '42's squad has done equally as well although they did not have as large nor as difficult a schedule. Winning one of the two games, they were able to hold their own. Coach Alfred Payne, who has only this year come to Fork Union, took command of the Junior Varsity. Under his guidance the squad started practice on February 4th. Payne showed the some strategy that he displayed during this year's J.V. football season. Simplifying the sport until every member was as efficient as the next, Coach Payne produced a Junior Varsity basketball team that will long be remembered. At first practice there were about ten cadets from last year who reported. Of these, all except two were former J.V. football men. The first few days training was enough to show that we would have a prosperous season. On Valentine's Day, the Woodberry Forest J.V. came to our campus for our first game. A hard and determined squad of cadets pushed clown the court only to find stiff resistance. Few points fell through the ring for either side. When the game was over, the Blue and Red J. V. could count 21 points, which was more than enough to cover Woodberry Forest's 14. Not long after, our team went to challenge the Woodberry Forest J.V. on their own court. At home or away made no difference to the Cadets. Play after play, shot after shot was tried by both sides with little result. Our boys fought hard and nobly but lost the game by only two points. 62 if ... Track The spikes will be flying over the cinders and the ribbons will be snapped by red clothed sprinters this year as Fork Union launches its 1942 track season under the training of Coach Daniel who gained his experience at the University of Richmond. Yes, this year the Red and Blue speedsters will have a track coach, and track will receive its due attention as a varsity sport. Only a very few of last year's team members are back, but Coach Daniel has some excellent former high school cinder pounders around who will form his team. He will be giving the lads pointers on everything from sprinting to pole-vaulting ancl iumping. After a two-week preliminary training period, a gigantic competition among those out for the team will decide the men to defend the honor of the Red and Blue on the cinders. Soon after this the team will enter in many meets between prep and military schools of Virginia and later will enter in larger meets out of State. Yes, you can look forward to some fast and powerful digging by the spiked men of Fork Union. A record-breaking half-mile was expected by Fork Union's Harry Moore, but he is now a member of Uncle Sam's Air Corps .... Many half-milers breathe a sigh of relief. 63 BOXING TEAM Birk, Richer, Brock, Leonard, Dorsheimer, Pozza, Wiley Boxing Christmas holidays usually have lasting effects on the cadets of Fork Union. Contrary to this, however, our present squad of some thirty leather pushers hurriedly began training on January 8. Their schedule called for two matches, and a shot at the South Atlantic Tournament. All matches were to be played on foreign soil. Under the supervision of Capt. Stafford and the coaching of Joe Leonard, the battling "Key-Dets" soon showed unbelievable promise. Leonard, himself a cadet, who for the past several years has fought under the famous Jack Dempsey, led the unlimited class. Brock, a gallant little Golden Gloves finalist, followed close on his heels in the 130-pound division. Wiley, Richer, Baldasano, Pozza, and Dorshiemer admirably filled out the remaining openings. The latter part of January found the squad with one defeat, received from Staunton Military Academy, but overshadowing this was the glorious victory over Hargrave. In this match, punched full of thrills, Dorshiemer, in the second round of his match bout, took the spotlight when he K.O.'d his opponent in one minute and fifty-seven seconds. Four others quickly caught his stride, and the squad came through with flying colors. The Soldiers of Fork Union thus wound up their season with a victory of five bouts to three. A successful year has been completed, yet there still lies ahead of us the South Atlantic Prep School Tournament. This contest will take place some time during the last of March. The whole squad, with the addition of John Baldasano, will venture forth to do battle in this final contest. Past records offer added rays of hope, but time alone will tell the tale. 64 Tennis Fork Union's Tennis Teams have been unusually successful during the past years. Under the guidance of Coach Miles and Coach Wildman, they have ventured forth to conquer Hargrave, Woodberry Forest, Virginia Episcopal, and St. Christopher. The addition of six new tennis courts this year should prove useful to future teams. Up to now our teams have been handicapped by the lack of court space. The present squad is scheduled to begin practice about Easter, almost a complete novice squad will report. However, there are two ranking stars from last year who will return-Jack McClellan and Bill Matthews. Both show promise, and have had excellent tennis careers thus far. The new club is composed of several veterans in terms of achievements and honors won. Last year's team established such an outstanding record that it almost won the State Championship of Virginia. They were denied the honor late in the season when a final loss conquered them. Successful-is the one word for last year's victorious team. From all appearances this season's squad will do equally as well. 65 is Junior Varsity Football Bobko Matthews Dorsheimer Barbieri Lamastra Dolson Richer, A. Richer, C. Harrison Ward, A.

Football On a sultry autumn afternoon approximately fifty-one ambitious cadets reported to Coach Payne for Junior Varsity duty. A tremendous task lay ahead of them. A new coach and strong-willed youths were to mould themselves into a fast and efficient organization. This squad, the largest for several years, was to accomplish this in two short weeks of preliminary training-training that would send them into a victorious season, despite their greeness. Pre-season iniuries did little to discourage the fiery spirit of sportsmanship within them. Early in October it was a squad still in the unstable state of organization that trotted eagerly to meet its Orange and Black foe. Amid ringing shouts from an enthusiastic Cadet Corps the gallant little J.V.'s bravely defended their goal posts. However, it was not until the second half that the Blue and Red Midgets could have hopes of victory. Playing almost classic football, the ambitious gridsters drove down the field in the closing minutes to hang up the magic figure six. Failure to capture the extra point was overshadowed by the 6-0 defeat that was handed to the disappointed Orange High School team. The next nine days that lay between the first victory and the forthcoming contest were more than useful to Coach Payne. The gridders, pugnacity whetted upon the narrow margin of success, spent valuable hours in piecing together their plans to spell victory in their next campaign, to be launched against Massanutten Military Academy. The Blue and Red Junior Varsity iourneyed several hundred miles to combat the Massanutten cadets on their home ground. While a grey mist settled somberly over the playing field, the rovers of Fork Union were driven deep into their own territory. They had held stubbornly until a quick pass and wide sweep brought the first score for the hosts. The convert failed as did all other tries for markers during that period. lt seemed that the small but efficient score that the defenders had received would be their allowance. As Fate would have it, late in the fourth period another quick pass and a reverse through the line again drew winning points for Massanutten. Going wide over the uprights the ball failed to gain the extra point. The victorious roar that accompanied the end of the game brought large lumps into the throats of the gallant J.V.'s who honorably bowed to a 'l2-0 defeat. After weeks of delay due to the unavoidable postponement of games, a stately squad of Staunton Military Academy cadets ventured forth to contest the Fork Union battlers. Never before has the deluxe field of the Blue and Red soldiers 'seen an exhibition of football like the one the bearers of the home colors displayed that day. Lady Luck was with them, for it was in the first minutes of the game that smart quarterbacking secured a score. A kick that was well executed yielded the 67 odd point. The second half was as exciting as the first. The minutes between the halves seemed to have added vigor to Payne's soldiers, and it was not long before flying hoofs and ingenious plays once again made deep impressions in the guest's territory. Five plays after they had received the kick, the J. V.'s were crossing the opponent's diagonals. Once the kick was converted, the scoreboard told the tale of victory. The warriors of Coach Payne were once more to wear the victor's medals when the final gun granted them a 14-0 lead. Two wins and one loss was a record not to be marred by the next game, but the Norfolk Independent team was to deny the Junior Varsity a final victory. The forward strategists of Fork Union fought bravely but were overrun early by a mass- spread formation that netted the sailors their first points. The battling soldiers were able to block the final point. Behind this 6-0 lead the J. V.'s redeemed themselves late in the game. Hard and fast, they drove down the field, plunging through the defenses of the intruders for their share of the glory. The duel of the two fighting teams drew to a dramatic close as the final answer disclosed a 6-6 tie. The shadows of football season drew nigh, the Junior Varsity turned in their uniforms. It was a season of which to be proud. "The greatest competition throughout the entire season," said Coach Payne, "was for a place on 'Extra Duty.' " Several casualties in the first game may be a good excuse for the only loss. However the love of football that is in the hearts of every Junior Varsity player is not diminished by reverses. They have played and played hard, won and won hard, they have lost, and lost the sportsman's way. i res. . 68 Rifle Team Grafe, A. Silvey, F. Ca ta'n P l Files Ralon, V. Fry Watson, A.

We are particularly proud of this year's team, which under the able coaching of Sergeant Walker, and the leadership of its captain, Grafe, A., has given a fine account of itself. We are sorry to say, that at present we are unable to give the results of this year's Hearst Trophy match. However, by the time this Year Book is in the hands of the cadets we feel sure that all of us will be applauding our Sharp Shooters for their work in this national competition. 69 Lynch, Seymour, McClellan, Fekas, Rawls Cheer Leaders The day was cold and windy, the fans were slowly freezing, the players' hand were numb, but the cheer leaders garbecl in white were still shouting and urging the crowd to cheer. The fans were wondering how they could still prance around, but the fans were responding to their pleas. McClellan, Fekas, Rawls, Lynch, and Seymour are our cheer leaders. Before the Massanutten game they planned a huge victory bon fire which was carried out in an enthusiastic manner. The next day they led the cadets in cheers as the team fought up and down the field. All through the season they kept up their good work. 70 Intramural Sports Everybody likes to remember the days when he used to fly a kite, shoot marbles and spin a top. Likewise, what fun it will be to look back on our high school days when we used to play intramural sports at Fork Union. Remember how Colonel Edens would give up the drill period every Tuesday so we could have athletics? There would always be two volley ball games going on behind old Snead Hall. Those who ever played once would come back again and again, they like it so well. Even the instructors who supervised the games couldn't resist playing. The Latin-American boys were nearly always the best players. No one wanted to stop when the period was over, so frequently the game would go right on until mess three. Many of the boys preferred softball, and several games would be going at the same time on the new drill field. Some of the cadets became top notch players, and many is the time the games were fast and close. How much fun it was to swim on a hot day! We would run over to the ole swimming pool and take a dip. The water was always cool and refreshing. Some cadets even swam all the year 'round, and don't think the water wasn't cold in January! Our rifle range was new last year. It was an excellent one, and many of the boys would spend Tuesday afternoon down there popping at the bull's eye. Remember how Grafe used to sink them home? Sergeant Walker taught the boys to shoot and made a good iob of it too. Tennis was always a favorite sport at Fork Union, but we were sadly handicapped by a lack of courts. There was only one fairly good one, and so very few boys could play. There was one other, more or less cleared piece of ground, we called a court, but one never played on it except as a last resort. Now, however, we have six newly completed tennis courts of which we are justly proud. After Christmas basketball got into swing. This was an inter-company sport and was played at night during C. Q. Each company selected two teams, one heavy and one lightweight, and played in competition with the other companies. If you were lucky enough to make a team you could miss part of C. Q. And boy! how we liked to miss C. Q. As everyone knows "B" Company had the crack team. The sad part was that cadets not on the teams could not watch because they had to be studying. We could watch the boxing matches every Saturday though, and they were always fun. Anyone who wanted to box could turn his name in and he would be matched with someone his size. We always started with the lightweights and worked up. Generally the medium-weights were the best. The lighter class couldn't hit hard enough, and the heavyweights were too cautious. The boys were always good sports and kept the boxing clean. lt was a sure sign of spring when a couple of fellows would begin to "catch" behind Snead Hall where they were protected some from the wind. Soon more and more got the baseball fever and then it became quite a hazard to walk across the campus for fear you would stop a baseball. Knocking out fiies was a favorite, but it was hard on the windows of old Snead Hall. 7'l X . X +IVIIlIIARY+ LT. COL. JEAN EDENS lnfanfry, U. S. A. P.M.S.8.T. We give a hearty salute to Every member of the graduating respect for the man who heads energy, force, and directness of ilitary Staff our P. M. S. 81T., veteran militarist of the old school. class will long carry with him an honest and sincere our military department. To us he exemplifies the an officer we would all love to serve under should the privilege arise. Apart from his position in the Military we honor him as a gentleman of the finest culture, and a man sincere in his desire to be of the greatest help to us and to the country. First Lieutenant Ransone, though young in years, is old in experience and in his understanding of the problems that face all of us cadets here at Fork Union. We have all absorbed some of his spirit of cooperation and unstinted effort toward the advancement of the Military here. Our hats off to you, Lieutenant, and may the future hold for you a just reward for the services you have rendered every cadet here. Last, but not least, is our faithful Sergeant Walker, traditionally a part of our school, and the bulwark of our early military training. We think of him not only as Sergeant Walker but as friend indeed-and we were indeed in need of a friend to help us over the bumps when we were novices in the first stages of Military. Again a hearty salute to the three members of our Military Department. We will miss you when we are gone but we will think of you often-and with sincere appreciation for your efforts to make us good soldiers. SERGEANT EDWARD WALKER 75 FIRST LIEUT. HARVEY A RANSONE JR ' xl! I 'Wiz V Q . .4 -7214 X L eggs? Military Training at Fork Union By LT. COL. JEAN EDENS, P.M.S.8.T. In 1901 the trustees of Fork Union Academy announced that with the beginning of the next term 119021 the school would be known as Fork Union Military Academy, and that military instruction and discipline would be made a part of the curriculum. This decision was made in accordance with the wishes of many patrons and trustees who thought this the best method of developing discipline, health, and manly bearing of the students. Accordingly, at the opening of the school in 1902, the students were uniformed and organized into a battalion of two companies. The discipline 'and drill regulations were based upon those of the United States Army. In 1904 Captain E. T. Winston of the Regular Army was detailed by the War Department as a Military Instructor. The enrollment at that time numbered 125 cadets. In 1919 the War Department designated Fork Union Military Academy as a Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps of the class M. C. This type of military school is def1ned by the War Department as follows: Class M. C., R. O. T. C.-a school which ' .Sim A 76 requires all students to pursue military training throughout the course, and to be habitually in uniform, which constantly maintains military discipline, and which has as obiectives the development of the students by means of military training, which regulates the student's conduct through disciplinary principles, in which the curriculum is not sufficiently advanced to carry with it a degree upon the culmination of the prescribed academic course, in which the average age of the students is less than 21 years, which requires all qualified cadets to carry a full course of theoretical and practical military training. The complete course of instruction must extend over a period of four years, and have as its obiectives the training and qualifying of students for positions of leadership in times of national emergency. The first two years of the course are designed to give the students a knowledge of the fundamental training requirements, and to develop their initiative, confidence, and ability so that in times of emergency they can instruct untrained civilians, and lead squads and sections in combat. The object of the last two years of training is to qualify cadets who have demonstrated special qualities of leadership for commissions in the Officer's Reserve Corps. Upon completion of the full four-year course the students should be able to perform the duties of platoon leaders. The training is progressive and is designed to cover the maximum amount of ground in the time available. Whenever possible the applicatory method of instruction is used for the purpose of developing the qualities of leadership and command. As many students do not take the full four-year course every effort is made to oFfer in the first two years those phases of military training which will qualify the student for effective military service in case of emergency, and at the same time offer instruction which will be of definite educational value in preparation for civil life. H At the present time the Cadet Corps enrollment is 385, and is organized into a complete infantry battalion including a band. The organization provides a staff consisting of Battalion Commander fMaiorJ, a Plans and Training Officer CCaptainJ, a Supply Officer CCaptainl, and an Adiutant fist Lieutenantl. A Sergeant Maior, two Color Sergeants, and a Supply Sergeant complete the staff. 77 CADET MAJOR R. S. CHAPMAN Battalion Commander MAJOR R. S. CHAPMAN Battalionnnnn! Attention! We are all familiar with this battle cry which our able Battalion Com- mander snaps over our heads at all formations. Maior Chapman, who has been here for only four years, has the esteem and respect of the whole Cadet Corps and Facultyp and is the most prominent cadet on our campus. His good humor and striking appear- ance have drawn to him many friends. Always neat in appearance and bearing, he is an ideal officer. We all join in wishing him the best of luck wherever he goes and in whatever he does. 78 Iiflllllllll MISS MARY ELIZABETH ANDERSON Battalion Sponsor CADET CAPT. H. C.

Captain Watkins, the originator of this plan, first tried it out in "D" Dormitory. His method was very successful, and it was adopted by Snead Hall. Under this plan, Captain Watkins made the rules concerning floor proctors, details, discipline, and adiutants. As Commandant of "D" Dormitory he took charge of all phasestof life in that section. The adiutant system, by which a cadet from each floor takes charge of the posting and recording of demerits, has distributed the work so that Maior Crockett's Office has a lighter burden. On the strength of his accomplishments here at Fork Union, we can safely say that he will go far in the United States Army. CADET CAPTAIN CAMPBELL: When the new method of Barrack Commandants was put into effect in Snead Hall, Captain Campbell carried out the plan very well. With the assistance of the floor proctors and adiutants, Captain Campbell regulated the cadets' actions in Snead Hall. We will always remember Captain Campbell as the little man with the big influence and prompt action. 90 lho lowor School CAPT. .l.

Of late we have not attempted to stress the formation of teams with which to compete with other schools, but rather to stress intramural activities. A wide variety of sports is offered, among which are found basketball, football, baseball, hiking, swimming, gym classes, horseback riding, boxing, and wrestling. ln addition to these we have a hobby room where the boys can fill in their spare time with the things they like to do best. Our hobby room is equipped to teach the fundamentals of woodworking, model airplane construction, metal crafts, leather craft, and photography. "PEE-WEE" CLASSES The affectionate term pee-wee is used by the Upper School when referring to the Lower School Cadets. Every day we see them trooping to school headed by their own officers, and their smiling faces bespeak their joy in living at Fork Union. Under the close supervision of their teachers they receive training in a variety of subiects. They find time to play, too, after the lessons of the day have been completed. ln a combination hobby and game room the little men are taught to make bookcases, develop photographs, and play ping-pong. Some day one of these Pee-Wees after serving his term in the Lower School, will bend a weary back pounding out copy for the Skirmisher. I . by 93 THE lVllLlT RY CADET CAPTAIN ATWOOD Military training in the Lower School consists of a well-rounded program of military drill and military discipline. Regularly scheduled drills are conducted throughout the entire year. They are based on the accepted standards of training of all military organizations. During these drills, the cadet officers are in complete charge of their own units, and a faculty officer is present at all times in the capacity of observer and advisor. A sound, practical program of military discipline can add much to the character and bearing of any boy. We attempt to instill in our boys the fundamental principles of military courtesy by requiring them to practice these rules in their daily contacts with their superior cadet officers and their faculty officers. Such a training offers every opportunity for the development of those qualities of leadership found in many boys. lt stimulates the growth of self-reliance, self- respect, respect for others, punctuality, and reliability which are so necessary in the evolution of clean, sincere manhood. 95 XM". - u if!

Remember too how we gradually realized that wearing the uniform was not all there was to being a cadet at Fork Union? Now try hard to see us being taken out on the drill field, taught to stand at attention and right and left face. And see, also, if you can remember the work, drill, and hard study of military we went through for our first Government Inspection. When we returned in the fall of '39, we were the new upperclassmen and were given the duty of instructing the new cadets in what a good rat should do and not do. As for us, we entered into the second phase of our basic course in military. I know that everybody remembers when Colonel Edens, our P. M. S.8.T., announced to the Cadet Corps that we had regained our Honor School Rating. We yelled and clapped so loud that we nearly brought down the chapel. Then came that grand and glorious time of year when we sat in chapel to watch another graduating class move out and wondered if we would ever march up those steps and get ours. After a summer of work and play we again came back to our old Alma Mater in September '40, but everything was not the same. Not all of our class has returned. We went in search of those who did come back to find out what appened to those who didn't. Remember how anxious we were about the list of promotions? Then after years iso it seemedi it was announced to the Corps and the maiority of us were high ranking non-commissioned officers. This was our first year in advanced military and so we worked harder in that than ever before. This was also the year we were in charge of all details of preparing for Government Inspection. lt is hardly necessary to say we passed with flying colors. After a year of hard work and little play we witnessed another graduation exercise with more thought and less anxiety. Then we realized that this class, by passing out, made us seniors and it would be our turn next to say farewell to Fork Union. ln the fall of '41 most of us returned to be cadet officers as well as seniors. When we arrived on the 17th of September, we were again disappointed to find a few of the old boys missing. lt was a big laugh too, to find the ones who said they would surely not be back. They were the first ones here! Promotions gave us the same old headache but most of us turned up cadet officers. Just after our first term exams came December 7th-Pearl Harbor-and our country was at war. Now we are taking our Military more seriously because we all realize we will be in the army sooner or later. A few of us will be second lieutenants, commissioned fwe hopei from the Academy. We, the Class of '42, realize that we will be one of the many factors which will determine the outcome of this war. We had looked forward to a better way of starting out, but we thank God that we have had the opportunity of attending a school like Fork Union and receiving the training which we are sure will be of tremendous help later on. So to our school we bid a fond farewell, but not goodbye. For even though we don't return, our spirit will live forever at the Academy. 101 JAMES WALTER AILSTOCK, JR.

We look forward with some degree of hesitancy into a future that is clouded with the dark vista of war. We see around us the members of the present Senior Class-men we have come to know and respect-imbued with the spirit of patriotism and leadership. We could set no higher goal than to follow the road of service over which they have so cheerfully advanced. Coming after us will be countless numbers of gray-clad cadets looking to us as Seniors for the inspiration which we sought in those who went before us. We will strive, each one of us, to pass on to them something of the Spirit that we have absorbed during our years at Fork Union Military Academy. 139 Adair, J. A. Allison, R. S. Barneck, W.

Ye A A LAUREL FOR MAC: lf it is not too irregular the faculty advisers wish to pool their thanks in the form of a bouquet which we gratefully place in the capable hands of Cadet McClellan, who bore the brunt of the responsibility when our Editor was taken ill at a crucial stage in the development of the Skirmisher. We would feel no less grateful but a lot less uneasy if we could find the semblance of a reasonably exact facsimile of him for next year's Skirmisher. A CIGAR FOR AL: To the proud papa of the "Dummy" from which this book developed, the advisers extend hearty congratulations. Friend Cole is a man of many parts: Artist, writer, musician, soldier, and reformer. lt is his breadth of outlook and understanding of our school which has guided the organization of your Annual into its present well-rounded form. To our Editor-in-Chief best wishes for success and all happiness. MOST POPULAR OFFICER MOST POPULAR NON-COM. Cadet First Lieut.

Harrison 147 The Last Will and Testament of The Class of '42 Having a few things left over after our lengthy stay we wish to get rid of them. This is the best way we know, so hold on tight-one of them is liable to come your way: LINDEN leaves his drum for the next dead beat. BANKS forces his fighting ability on Richer, A. COLE leaves his iob as Editor of the Skirmisher to any and sundry who may want it. MYERS gives up his manly build to Atwater. ROBRECHT leaves his great military appearance to Deahl. SIEMBACK leaves his ability to stay out of trouble to Magee. VAN SCOY hands the knowledge of bookkeeping to Dabrowski. WARCZYNSKI throws his temper to Hatfield. WILEY has a slightly used razor for Arif. BRANDES endows that great height of his to Fowley. SEYMOUR gives a iob of cheer leading to Materazzo. SEIFERTH gives up his cooperative attitude to Elder. LATIMER has a bugle to get rid of. Don't someone want it? HASSELL passes his manly ways on to Shaunessy. MCCLUNG dedicates a pair of size 14 shoes to Magee. WATKINS AND CAMPBELL leave fhoorayj. WATKINS gives his first captaincy to Campbell. WATKINS AND CHAPMAN leave a sheet to Capt. Daniel. McCLELLAN leaves his green bathrobe to Roessler. 148 XM X Ever try writing something about your fellow class- mates? Not easy, is it? Every time you start, you get a lump in your throat. And because of what? Because you know that you're writing about the swellest bunch of fellows you know. What will it be like? I suppose it will be one last meal, that you won't mind too much, then a final parade on that hot field-a last formation to go to chapel, and finally your last farewells to class- mates. Yes, it was a big year and a good year, too. We seniors made a good showing. But there's that lump again, so iust turn the pages back and look at all the fellows you knew when . . .
