CROCKETT Commandant To assist him in some of his clerical Work, the Comrnandant appointed none other than our own Lieutenant ,lerry DeYoung as Executive Officer. Well has he performed his duties in answering reports, granting permissions, conducting the Retreat Inspections, and helping with the inspec- tions of the barracks on Weekdays and on Satur- days. We particularly Wish him and Miss Vera Kidd happiness in their future life together. TACTICAL On returning to the Academy in September, We found that Colonel Crockett had completely reorganized the supervision of the various school activities. As Commandant, he continued in charge of Extra Duty and the Saturday-morning inspections of the barracks. It was a familiar sight indeed to see him organizing "E.D.,' on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. And when Colonel Crockett inspected the barracks We made sure that there was no dust behind the radiators. LIEUTENANT JERRY W. DEYOUNG Executive Officer STAFFC 9 Another innovation this year was the discard of the old system of having all the faculty go on duty as "O.C.,' Instead a new system was set up whereby all the faculty went on duty in the three barracks-units as 'tT.O." Captain Reichen- bach and Captain Kempf were appointed as alter- nating Officers-in-Charge. And who, of all the faculty, would we rather see early in the morning than Captain Reichenbach? No other faculty officer has been such a true and faithful friend of all the cadets. CAPTAIN HERBERT F. REICHENBACH Officer-in-Charge CAPTAIN JOHN J. KEMPF Ojicer-in-Charge 35 It didnlt take very long for us to become accus- tomed to seeing Captain Reichenbach or Captain Kempf at the Mess l formations. One or the other was always on the Circle no matter how early We got up and went outside. On the cold and rainy mornings of the winter we sometimes found ourselves wishing for the old days of in- side formationsg but they seem to be a thing of the past. It also became customary to keep track of which of the dO.C.,sn was inspecting on Satur- day. lf it was Captain Kernpf we knew to stack our beds properly and have clean linen on dis- playg if it was Captain Reichenbach, we dusted everything three times.

White, RN Academy Physician In Charge of the I njirmary FIRM RY f f , wmv f Mrs. Virginia McCready, Mrs. Katie Petty Snead, Assistant Nurse Night Nurse THE INFIRMARY Upon returning to school this fall, we found one of our old barracks, The Maples, transformed into a new, up-to-date Infirmary which could take care of many more cadets than the old one. Its location, back from the road and behind the other buildings, was a help in keeping the noise of the campus from reaching and disturbing those sick in bed. As in previous years Dr. Yeatman is continuing his services as our school physi- cian-keeping well those that are well and making well those that are sick. Presiding over the lnfirmary's fine staif this year is Mrs. Dorothy White-capable, efhcient, and always ready with the right thing for the wrong ache. In addition to Mrs. White, we have the services of Mrs. McCready and Mrs. Snead, two ladies who could help hasten the recovery of a sick fellow with amazing speed. They together have more than taken care of the needs of our cadet corps. ln addition to the new building, the new physical equipment of our infirmary now includes a modern diet kitchen-something which is seldom seen outside of a hospital-many new beds, more scientific instruments, and a much needed oflice. The services of two maids keep the infirmary spotless at all times and the boys there well fed and content. We can justly be proud of our new infirmary. There are not many schools of our type who can boast of such a fine one as this. azing through the pages of this section familiar and beloved faces appear again, as they appeared time after time around the campus. True, they are scattered to the four Winds in physical being, but in spirit they all will linger on the grounds, in the barracks, and in the classrooms forever. The good times We have all spent together will be carried in the memories of all those depart- ing from Fork Union, probably never to return again. There Was no line of class distinction be- tween any of us-we Were all just one big, happy' group. Together you will find once again the Cadets of Fork Union Military Academy as you found them here. They will remain the same always. CLASSES -f""SW wa lr," " Y Y,..,,..-7.7 , , , X 'ZA - A V!! M --Y,....+..,... . X, 1 .J-' xx' we-ff I, "xx 5 xxx- ,,,x'N".

A dashing young fellow from old Virginia is Bobby, appropriately dubbed "Screwball" During his two years at Fork Union, he has made for himself a name which his many friends will not easily forget. When there are girls on the campus, you can be sure he is the Hman of the hour." Otherwise, you will find him polishing his sergeant's pin and, at the same time, instructing other unlearned mortals in the masterful art of kissing a girl Cin ten easy lessonsl. The University of Virginia will probably claim Bobby after graduation, and we know he will do well for himself there. Best luck-we're with you! g 44 DEAN STANLEY CROCKER SEABOARII, NORTH CAROLINA '43-744 Privaleg Athenian Literary Societyg Intramural Football and Basketball. ,44-,45 Privateg Intramural Basketball and Football. From the Tarheel country down in North Carolina, we have a fellow who has sojourned with us for the past one and a half years. All the fellows from first floor of Memorial Hall can tell you he was one of their best friends. Many of his hours have been spent just Hshoot- ing the bull" with his roommate and others. It certainly took him very little time lo learn the "methods of mad- ness" of which most cadets had a few originals-his favorite occupation became sleeping, the unanimous choice of the cadet corps, which choice we regard as a wise one indeed. Academically he did his best always, as he did in the other activities in which he participated. He'll remember well the 'LRing', although he wasn't con- tinually on it. Dean, we at Fork Union think you will come out on top of everything. Do your best in Uncle Sam's vast Heetg he needs more fellows like you for his sailors. e x ,V ,, ,.,,t , ..., - . ,V 4 flfylm'-,ff hy, ' ., 'Z f :V W .. 7 .

This elusive ability probably comes from his being from the bouncing cow state, New Jersey. Seriously, though, he never did anything bad-he only averaged walking E.D. once or twice a Week. Turning over G.I. cans, short-sheeting beds, and being late to classes never worried "Sarge", because extra duty always did have its possibilities. When he enters the Merchant Marine, he will surely make good in every way, though, for his friendly manner and his willingness to do his share will make others sit up and take notice of him. 416 '43-,44 JOHN DAVID GRAY HaIIover Avenue RICHMOND, VIRGINIA '42-'43 Prioateg Ciceronian Literary Societyg Company Baskctballg Section.

Tall, friendly Bill is one of our more handsome boys who is always on the go doing one thing or another. This past year brought him the honor of a seat on the Gold Star Council-a treasure coveted by every cadet. You see. his scholastic record was always on the top. The debates Bill gave in the Ciceronian Literary Society were worth while hearing. Almost all of the waiters will have a difficult time forgetting him, but not many will want to forgetg his gentle manner impressed all.

Certainly no one else here had such a magnetic personality. His graduation will mark a loss to the Academy as a whole, not just to a select few.

Even in the difficult realm of Military H la la Lt. Chapmanl he kept up this extraordinary average. When Longfellow wrote 'lExcel- sior,', he must have had you in mind, "Cene',.

His manner of speech was one of the joys in the hearts of all our cadets from below the Mason-Dixon lineg he was their champion. C-lancing back over his record, one would Hnd it to be unexcelled in the school's history. This made him one of the brightest stars in the Gold Star Council. How- ever, the academic department felt only a beginning of his excellence. To Coach Thomas he became indispen- sable in football, and also most valuable to Capt. Payne in the Clee Club. Yes, "lVlac,' is an example of the perfect all-around cadet.

The Second Floor in Memorial Hall abounded plentifully with the echoes and re-echoes of his sweetness-all living there had to cover their ears when he was around. Seriously though, he gained the respect of all his fellow students for his willingness to turn out and help all he possibly could. When the going became rough, '4Swede" was not one to turn away, shirking his tasksg he went straight ahead, inevitably inviting success. Most fel- lows took a delight in teasing him, but that never bothered him-he enjoyed it as much as they. Though his plans after leaving Fork Union are not definite, we believe his life will be a good example for others to follow. f ,,,, . . , , V . , .gg f 2 , gait 5 .. .4 f .t -.

His first year he received the Citizenship Medal for accumulating no demerits at all. CYes, fellows, it is possible. Bill will tell youll A-Company fellows will pleasantly remember him as their first sergeant this past year. He carried 1 out his duties, but he always gave every cadet the fairest possible.

When he was present you could always tell by his constant laugh- ter and talk-never for a single moment was lIe quiet. Being a constant member of the Honor Roll and Head- master's List proved that his scholastic ability was above the average. Since he did not live on our campus, he did not take part in as many activities as some others, but those in which he was were all aware of his industri- ousness-especially the Rifle Team. Quite the Cassanova type was he with the town bellesg never was there a Saturday night that one couldn't be assured of his Hbeing away from home on important business".

He proved himself quite a swift runner in the trials for this yearls track team. With plenty of practice he would probably take a place as one of the very best racers we have ever had.

Quiet, wise, scholarly, athletic, and very likeable are but a few qualities which bring into light the personality of our good friend here. His interests in his studies brought to him a seat on the Gold Star Council this year, so you can see the Honor Roll was dignified upon each presentation with his name. HBN Company's first platoon will long remember their leader as an example of the successful cadet oilicer. Not every platoon leader could boast of the friendship or cooperation of his men as could Marvin-they knew him and obeyed his com- mand. His strength was reputed to be amazing, since he spent quite a bit of time on practicing physical cul- ture in the form of weight-lifting. If you are as capable in the Marines as you were here, then our praises will not have been given in vain. 83 MORRISON SAUNDERS TAYLOR 1024 Virginia Avenue SURFOLK, VIRGINIA '42-'43 Privateg P.F.C.g Ciceronian Literary Societyg Tennis Team. ,43-'44 Priuateg Ciceronian Literary Societyg Tennis Teamg Section Basketball.

In his one short year with us Mac endeared himself in the memories of all his many friends. Although a bit reserved and quiet at times, he could come forth with a remark at other times that would throw the group he was with into fits of laughter. Smallness of stature did not hinder him in taking part in his sectionis sports. He could carry the ball just as far as all the larger fellows playing bis beloved sport, football. He was a typical Southerner in his manner, although his speech betrayed a slightly Northern accent. In the future we most probably will hear from him as a highly successful business man. The best of luck to you, fellow! 85 Jost ANTONIO VARGAS SAN JUAN, PUERTO Rico 344345 Private, Section Football, Basketball, and Base- ball. From the sunny climes of one of our southern neigh- bors, Puerto Rico, comes a young fellow full of energy and ready willingness to work. The first thing he did, upon moving into A-Section, was to volunteer to play on the section team in football. This was only the begin- ning of his activity, football, then basketball and lastly baseball came to a top place on his list. Showing hearty support and co-operation to all with whom he had to associate, he gained their respect, admiration, and friendship. He studied hard and long and was rewarded by gaining an inestimable store of learning for the future. All of the fellows at Fork Union wish to give you their heartiest congratulations upon your success here.

'44-'45 Private, Section Football and Basketball. Coming from the coastal region of our proud old state, we had a young man to come to us two years ago. It didn't take him long to get adjusted to our manner of doing things. Before so many weeks were gone he was out with the section team pounding the line for a vic- torious score. His two years in the waiters were re- garded by him as being the best times he ever had land also the time of accumulation of a great many excessive demerits.J Occasionally you could find him out plod- ding wearily around the uRing', trying to work that accumulation off. He gave vent to his personality by making great numbers of friends, especially among the fellows who lived in the section with him. We are assured that he will do honor to himself before many years have gone by. Go your way and do your best! 11' aL '51 1 4' I ,rags ..

With a bewitching smile and a cheerful greeting ever- present on his lips, "Cinger', graced the corridors and anti-corridors of our honorable institution for one fifth of a decade. To find him you could always depend on his being in one of two places-one, engaged in the squeamish pastime of ridding himself of excessive de- meritsg the other, trumpeting up a "jam session" with Fresn, Morris, and a bunch of other fellows. His cre- ative ingenuity was often set to practice in dreaming up some new way to cause some cadet oiiicer to squirm with the effects of one of his priceless practical jokes. He was active in the literary societies because of his interest in journalism. Credit must be given him also for some of the fine write-ups which appeared in this yearis Sabre and Skirmisher.

As an inhabitant of the old lounging parlor fThe Maplesl, he enjoyed all the con- veniences of the modern uFork Union gentleman". Memories of Thornhill's immortal birthday party will blaze in vivid fire on his brain for some time to come.

With a sense of duty and obligation he worked his hardest to try to do the things that were right. In his studies you heard from him on the academic honor list occasionally. A friend to all those who knew him personally, he would often do little acts of kindness which endeared him to them more. Since this was his first and only year at Fork Union, he didn't get to enter into many of its activities or enjoy the extreme privilege fthe non-coms say it is no privilegel of being umadeu. If he should return next year, we think that he would advance in all capa- cities as he has shown us he could this year.

Although not the best student on the campus, he did his work very well making a success of all the opportunities which the Academy affords. A hearty supporter and a good sportsman were other characteristics he displayed upon the action scenes of his section,s basketball and baseball games. His aspi- rations after leaving Fork Union, with touches of Dr. Wicker's influence showing blatantly, are all centered on becoming a millionaire.

He was on substantial ground in the classroom also. A friendly word, a nod, and a flashing Virginia smile were instantly to appear when you met him about the campus. The entire corps was his friend.

'44-'45 Sergeant. E-Section has been many times the scene of the return of the Civil War. In the center of the heated contlagra tion would you always and invariably find this proud young New Englander, hailing from the state of Massa chusetts. His blood was of the type which caused his ancestors to win that mighty conflict Musical aspira tions were also present in his mind for a jam session never took place in E-Section without his taking part For this talent he will be remembered for years to come by his many friends. Uncle Sam's Navy stands ready to receive him this May. His pleasing personality w1ll make his stay with that good relative of ours most pleasant and profitable. STEPHEN COLLINSON JONES ARNOLD, MARYLAND '43-'44 Privateg Varsity Baseball. '44-'45 Privateg Varsity Football, Basketball, anal Base- ball. As the baseball season of 1944 rolled in, there also rolled in to us a fine young Southerner to herald its approach and take part in our season games. Apparently well satisfied with his surroundings he returned to us for the session this past year to take part in all varsity sports. You could always find him on that line hitting hard, on the courts throwing for a goal, or smacking a homer, depending on which season you saw hirn. Not only a fine sportsman but also a good student was he- no opportunities slipped by him in any department of the Academy. Over in the lounging room in Social Center he enjoyed all the conveniences of about forty- Five other roommates. However, we all think his stay at our institution was a complete success. Steve, upon your graduation and departure for the Armed Forces of the good old U.S.A., your fellow Seniors wish you the best of luck and happiness!

Recognition was not long in coming to 4'Speedy" after he entered our Academy, for upon the opening of the football season you could not be ignorant of his pres- ence. Memories of Fork Union will linger with him even after he enters V.M.I. next fall, especially certain fruits being Hservedv in the mess hall. However, we who have come to know '4Speedy', regard him as a very good friend and a good sport. Best of luck at V.lVl.I.! 97 JONATHAN K.

Another friendly and likeable fellow from Memorial Hall, our concentration camp, is 4'Sucker", an old Vir- ginia Gentleman. lf we should have another Civil War, he would be a leading instigator. Considered the 'fbrainn of Economic Math. Class, he must have been one of Capt. Gooclman's boys. Seriously, though, we think a lot of this fellow and hate to give him up to the Navy after graduation. The boys of Fork Union salute you, "Sucker", in hopes that you accomplish your ambitions. C L A ,,rr 025' I CORNELIUS BONEY OWENS FOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA 544-'45 Privateg Bandg Section Basketball. From the rapidly-becoming-famous little town of Foun- tain, down in the heart of the Tarheel country, comes a fine little fellow to stay with us only the span of one short year. He did his best in attempting to do any- thing, and usually he came out on top. Proving himself to be musically inclined, his talents were put to good use in the Academy band. Never failing, he would always be there on the steps of Hatcher Hall at Mess IH play- ing away with all his might. He took his course of study seriously, when many donit, and in the process made an excellent student. Fellow, we wish you luck, at the same time regretting that you have not longer to stay with us. 99 CLAUDIUS LORENZO OWENS FOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA '44-,45 Privateg Section Basketball. The second of the two Owens twins is this rollicking Romeo. He, too, comes from the deeps of the southern part of North Carolina. This first and only year of his, brought to him and those familiar with him a great deal of pleasure. Residing in the campus bridal suite CMemOrial Hall, third floorl, he received all the privi- leges and privations granted accordingly. We discovered, quite by accident, that he was another of the members of the secret HDuck-Hunter's Clubl' of that Hoor. fAn investigation of that organization might prove quite worth our time.J With plenty of teamwork and co- operation he did his best On the section basketball team.

MILITARY I The first few classes of Military I left the majority of the cadets enrolled therein in a complete state of bewilderment. Soon, though, under the expert guidance of Sgt. Walker, the mazes of military insignia, rifle assembly, drill and command, etc., and the resulting bewilderment were wiped away. For the first several weeks the training consisted of classroom lessons in Military Courtesy, special emphasis being placed on the subject of correct saluting. The next period saw Rifle Marksmanship training being given out on the field and in the Armory. Care was taken that every cadet knew what he was doing before he went on the range to lire. The most important subjects, Drill and Command, and Military Organization, were explained in minute detail so that no normal boy could fail to grasp their meaning and importance. Minor subjects, such as Military Hygiene and Sanitation, of importance nevertheless, constituted the subject matter taught during the remaining portion of the year. Those successfully completing this basic course in Military Science and Tactics will make capable non- commissioned officers in the future. 127 MILITARY II As a cadet passes from Military I to Military ll, he feels as though he were progressing rapidly to an established goal. In truth he is-the goal of making for himself the place of a commissioned ofiicer. This year the proficiency of some of the members of this class has been so remarkable that they already are saber-rating oilicers. Extensive training in the nomenclature, use, and care of the light and heavy machine guns occupied a major portion of the time allotted to this yearls Work. Later on the subjects of Rifle Fire Technique, Map Reading, and Drill and Command were discussed by Lieutenant Chapman, the instructor, in very minute detail. Altogether this yearls classes of Military ll, enrolling approximately one hundred twenty cadets, were the most eflicient and capable of any previous classes. Success in meeting the requirements of this rigid course surely showed that its owner would earn himself a commission the coming term. 2? 128 l W 1 l MILITARY III The third year-things are beginning to look most difficult when a cadet reaches the third year of military training in a Reserved Officers Training Corps, such as we have at Fork Union. Ambition, however, overcame this difficulty for most of this year's class, for the commission you heard about in Military I and dreamed about in Military II is near at hand. In fact, quite a few of these cadets started the year oli as a cadet otlicer. The subject matter covered in this advanced course of military tactics included a quick review of the machine gun and other matter studied previously. The 60 mm. mortar, bayonet, grenade, 37 mm. anti-tank gun, etc., were a few of the more important weapons utilized by the United States Infantry that were carefully taken up. Captain Burr, our most capable Assistant P.M.S.8zT. and instructor, covered the required material in such a way that every man understood its importance and significance. Completing Military Ill was quite an accomplishment. The highest ranking officers for next year emerged from the number enrolled. 129 MILITARY IV Under Lt.-Col. Abrams those few Who had successfully completed three years of severe training were brought to the state of perfection only possible in the fourth year class of Military Science and Tactics. All of the cadet officers enrolled received class and field instruction in the subjects of Close and Extended Order Drill CU. S. lnfantryj, Administration, Aerial Photography, review and use of the more important Infantry Weapons, Anti-aircraft Defense, and other important subjects prescribed by the U. S. Government as important strategies for use in modern Warfare. The classroom training was put into action on the field under the cadet officers who learned it. Upon completion of this fourth year highly advanced course, the cadet is eligible for an appoint- ment to Officers' Candidate School Which, in turn, leads to a commission of second lieutenant in the United States Army. Q These four years of training have not been in vain, for among our country7s defensive requirements there is none clothed in greater significance than that of providing an efficient corps of officers to manage its armed forces. 130 " - , , - A ,NW . . . .. . -1--Mi, .- ,iq 131 Major JOSEPH B.

RICKMAN, MARTIN L. WARE, Unit Commander Assistant Unit Commander side from the classroom toils and gruel- ing military drills we had some time for relaxation. Following are brief glimpses into the ways in which we spent our leisure time. For the privileged there were the Officers' Club and the Gold Star Council. Many a weary hour was spent by the few in those organizations earning their place there. The friendly rivalry of the two literary societies was proclaimed in their joint debates, orations, and readings. The Glee Club, for the musically in- clined, served as an oasis for those to whom sing- ing had a definite appeal. Together they all served to substantiate the old saying that, UAH work and no play makes ,lack a dull boyf' 0 RGANIZATIIIN S J. R. KINTZ, G. L. JONES, Editor-izt-Chief Managing Editor THE 194 Simultaneously with the beginning of school, the annual staff pitched headlirst into their mountain of work which now appears on these preceding and following pages. These industrious cadets, hard at work always, did their best to overcome the many obstacles and diliiculties that were thrown in their way. The head of the staff was the capable Editor-in-Chief, .lim Kintz, who showed us his adaptability to this type of work last year. Special recognition and credit should go out to George Jones, the hard- working and efficient Managing Editor, who lalong with a FEW others! 'churned tons of midnight oil" trying valiantly to get the book to press on time. Thanks can be given to Levi for the beautiful drawings and enjoyable cartoons which appear throughout these pages. To Zunich, Pierson, Halstead, and all the other members of the staff, a vote of thanks should be given by the cadet corps. Our Faculty Advisors, Captain Kempf and Captain Reichenbach, labored and worried every moment up to the minute the book was completed. Many hundreds of hours they spent toiling with the pictures, proof-reading, etc., assisting and working with the Stall members. This book, the result of the combined efforts of the industrious staff, shall have to speak for itself-we cannot venture an opinion. The ,4-5 Skirlnisher we made for you, we hope you, the Fork Union Cadets, will take and enjoy it. 154 SKIRMISHER The Editorial Staff of the Slcirmisher 155 HYMAN GORDON, THOMAS D.

' l eaf' Upon the appointment of the permanent battalion oilicers in Novem- ber, this most exclusive and all-powerful organization was started by the personal investiture of all old and new cadet oilicers and saber-rating non-commissioned officers. The right to a place in this club was usually earned only after three years of hard and strenuous work. ln some cases, however, such a remarkable elhciency was shown in the second year of training, that those officers possessing those qualities were welcomed most heartily into the sacred midst. By a unanimous vote J oe lnzaina was elected president for this year. Other oiicicers elected were Nick Lamastra, vice-presidentg Bob Bailey, secretaryg and Chuck Bonner, treasurer. This staff of eflicient officers rendered justice and ruled the members of this yearis battalion. Although a high standard was set by the previous Oliicers, Clubs, all members of this years most coveted organization agreed that they kept up this standard and carried it even higher than before. The succeeding oHicers have to go a long Way to excel them. MEMBERS 2nd Lt. C. S. Legum 2nd Lt. H. N. McHorney 2nd Lt. W. H. Harrell lst Sgt. W. R. Davie 2nd Lt. E. S. Hart lst Sgt. W. J.

RICKMAN President GLEE CLUB Upon the conclusion of the vocal utryoutsn early in the fall, Captain Payne chose thirty boys for permanent membership in this years organization. Practice started immediately for the annual Christmas concert. On the evening of December 13th, together with the junior and senior a capella choirs from Farmville State Teachers' College, our Glee Club rendered one of the most enjoyable Christmas pro- grams ever presented in the Academy Chapel. The majestic Hflallelujah Chorus" from Hanclel's ulVIessiah'7, performed by both groups in mass chorus, climaxed the evening of traditional Yuletide numbers. A return trip to South Hill, Va., on a later week-end in Febru- ary was immensely enjoyed by all who went. A concert on Saturday night in the high school auditorium and an appearance in South Hill Methodist Church the ensuing Sunday morning constituted the musical exhibition there. Following their pro- grams, the boys were royally entertained by the townspeople in their homes. In the late spring a week-end in Washington, highlighted by two formal appearances, ended a most successful traveling season for our Glee Club. Besides these trips, the boys performed in the Chapel and the village church, as well as giving several radio programs. Much credit is due to Captain Payne, the director, Cadet George Jones, the accompanist, and the officers of the organization for their splendid work in making this years Clee Club the best in the history of Fork Union.

ATWOOD President HHOW long, O Catilinen-the words of the mighty, ancient orator echo down to spur this years Ciceronian Society, which is his namesake, to greater achievements in the realm of literature. His poise and convincing delivery, return to the rostrum through the mouths of members of the Society. Debating, oratory, decla- mation, reading, and recitation were the main types of verbal literary refreshment. Those who were gifted with a talent for presenting any one of these many things, always came forward willingly with their contribution. Bob Atwood, the golden-voiced orator of the Academy fDe- bating Medal, 19441, was elected president of the organization by a good majority. Always seeking improvement in the debating on the campus, he made the Societyis debating team something of which its members could be proud. They carried away the glory from the Athenians in the annual presidential election argument. All of the small but interested membership took part in the various programs and activities during the session. When a member was called on to do something, he always was willing to at least try. From the praise the Society received, we judge that those Htriesn were not in vain. The declamations of H. Gordon will be something well worth rememberingg he put everything into his deliveries-the result being something worthwhile. Major Waldron concludes the year by saying that this years Society was a most excellent one. He only hopes that the following Societies will show the co-operation, talent, willingness, and apprecia- tion that characterized this year's. 163 23, 2? 23: Pile ATIIENIAN LITERARY SUCIETY President ........,....., Vice President ....,.....

Reynolds E. Rittenhouse C. Seward J. Silverblatt H. Thompson H. Weedon C. Williams L. Woodall When the school session had gotten well under way, the Athenian Society organized for another year of enjoyable periods made possible by excerpts from the pens of the Worldas greatest Writers and by good debating from the Societyas members. An eliicient staff of officers led by Bruce Kidd, the president, was elected at the first meeting and carried on the affairs of the organization with a true sense of responsibility and duty befitting their office. Although the membership was somewhat decreased in size compared with previous years, the same high quality remained. The old axiom, HAlthough there is a lack of quantity, quality abounds", could surely be applied to this fine group of young men. The annual presidential election debate was the scene of some masterly arguments from the Athenian Team. Though the loser, they did their best in good debating to put Mr. Roosevelt back in oflice. Literally, they did win. As in years before, Major Waldron was present giving advice where advice was needed and helping wherever he possibly could. Without him the Society would have been "dashed upon the rocksn. This was altogether a most successful year for all in the Athenian Society. In the future other cadets will have to work exceedingly hard to exceed the standards set by the 1945 Society. i XP Xt' C. B. KIDD President 165 CADET CHRISTIAN ASSIICIATIUN OFFICERS William L.

The excitement and thrill of those times will be brought back once again. Give the boys all the credit they deserved for all those victories and sometimes lossesg they played their games well with your support. Maybe you will remember the times when you were out there on the field or in the gymnasium rooting and yelling your lungs out for them. They appreciated it, and in return gave you a good sports program for the year. :sk --.--h..,..g. 21 Wifi 4-nT3w5r'T M14 , - Q.

First Coach - Daily at practice Coach Thomas inspired his players with his energy and love of life, teaching them to play a fair and square game always.

The many obstacles that were set in front of this year's team made it hard for the fighting Reds to get started on the winning streak, especially due to the wild whirlwind of sickness that struck not only the school but also one of our best fighting Reds whom we all know and salute. The perfect and splendid coordination of the team-the product of the outstanding work of the co-captains and every- one in the squad under the supervision of our splendid coaches-was shown in every game that we played. i. 5 Q 172 5 ww MW an .

We all know the ones that are leaving us at the end of this session for the armed forces or some other destiny, and those that will be back next season will never forget the many hours they spent here practicing and the contribution they made to campus life. Once again the season ended with victories and losses for our well coached Reds, but everyone in the Cadet Corps-everyone that has seen you play-knows that all of you did your best with all the spirit and experience you had behind you. Thanks for the season you gave us, Team! We all know that you finished the task you startedg therefore, each and everyone of us salutes you! We are proud of you! Andrew Brinkley Shelton Psillas 173 Hawks Halstead Killian Johnson BALTIMORE-6g FORK UNION-0 The powerful lights of the Baltimore Municipal Stadium poured down on the first gridiron battle of the season between Baltimore City College and Fork Union Military Academy on September 22nd. The game opened with a powerful City drive, which, after being set back several times, resulted in City's iirst and only score of the game. Baltimore kept the initiative in the first half, but the Big Red Team fought back gallantly. lt was not until the third quarter that the Cadets showed their power. They stayed in City's territory and, at each play, threatened to score. The most spectacular play of the game was a short pass from Fisher to Loweree who immediately shoveled the ball to Kynes. Kynes, in turn, sent the ball to Lamastra on a lateral pass. The final whistle found the Red Team deep in City's territory. Baltimore is now ahead of Fork Union by one game, but we have hopes that it will not be for long! 174 l WOODBERRY FOREST-13g FORK UNION-7 October 14-th found Fork Union's Big Red Team in one of its toughest games of the year with Woodberry Forest on their own grassy grounds. In the first quarter, the Tigers marched deep into Fork Union,s territory and, with the help of a penalty, made the first touchdown. But they failed to make the extra point. Woodberry then tried for another score, but found themselves batting their heads against a stone wall. Luck greeted the Woodberry team when it helped them down to Fork Union's two. It took them three downs to break through the powerfully reinforced Fork Union line. The Cadets finally started clicking, and in the fourth quarter sent ,limmy Kynes over for their first tally. Andrews converted successfully. The last while found the Big Red Team knocking on old "pay-dirtls door" on the Tigeris ten. Fork Union's lack of experience cost them the game, for they had sixty-five yards worth of penalties imposed upon them. Klauder Sims Dallis J ones 175 Zelaya Sanderhoff Hoffman Kayton ST. JOHN'S-7g FORK UNION-25 Our first home game this season turned out to be a highly successful one for the Fork Union team. With the weather man behind them, the two teams lined up for the kick-off with Fork Union slightly favored. The Big Red made its first touchdown in the first quarter and continued their success by making another in each quarter thereafter. The final quarter was the most eventful. Two successive passes from "Gln Fisher to Penn Johnson placed the ball in scoring territory. From there Johnson took it over for the final score of the game. When it became evident that Fork Union possessed the more powerful team, Coach Thomas seized the opportunity to make liberal use of his substitutes. 176 Wa STAUNTON-7g FORK UNION-0 The Fork Union-Staunton game was played for the first time in many years here at Fork Union. As tradition demanded, the two teams met on Thanksgiving Day, and, as usual, the State Champion- ship hung in balance. The first quarter found both teams feeling each other out-the ball passing from one side to the other, with neither team showing a decided edge over its opponent. In the second quarter, Stauntonis fullback faded back and let loose with a pass to his end. Fork Union's hack, in attempting to knock down the ball, lost his balance and accidentally hit itvup, knocking it into the hands of Jenkins, Staunton's halfback. The Fork Union team, widely dispersed about the field, was momentarily caught off its guard. Thus, Jenkins, surrounded by two or three of his teammates, carried the ball the remaining few yards for the touchdown. They scored the extra point on a pass into the end zone. Arif Cooper Runyon Oliver 177 Miller lVlacDowall Knott Chase The Big Red came out for the second half with a strong determination to win, or at least draw blood in the attempt. Although, according to statistics, they out-played Staunton, the game ended, nevertheless, with Staunton leading by seven points. It was in this game that the Red Team first exhibited their use of the T-formation. However, most of the game was played from the single wing. GREENBRIER-25, FORK UNION-0 On November 30th, the Red and Blue took the road for Covington, where they met the Green- brier Military School team in the annual Tobacco Bowl classic. The weather was extremely cold and, during the game, the players were bothered by intermittent snowfalls. The field was churned to a muddy mire, and the Fork Union team came to know the disadvantage of not having mud cleats. 178 is af 4 fag Greenbrier pushed over for their first touchdown in the first quarter. They placed another six points on the scoreboard in the second quarter. With the score standing at 12-0, the two teams lined up for the second half. Although putting up a strong resistance, Fork Union bowed again to Green- brier in the third quarter. This time their opponents succeeded in their attempt at an extra point. The score, however, went up to 19-0. Taking the kick-off on his own twenty-five yard line, Fisher carried the ball back to the fifty where three men brought him down, the impact knocking the ball from his hands. Greenbrier recovered. The game ended with Greenbrier out front by twenty-five to nothing. Wade Ba ccellieri Jamison McAden Manager 179 J. I. FISHER Captain BASKETBALL When the cold winds began to blow and the ice started to form, there came from the gym many shouts. The sounds of many bounces and groans echoed from one Wall to the other. Basketball season had started! This year's red and blue cagers, under the faithful guidance and instruction of Coaches Thomas and Hunt, made quite a name for themselves among other schools as well as among the cadet corps. As the season moved on, the spirit of the team increased. Backed by the full cooperation of the cadets, the team fought their Way through many games. The cheering of the cadets almost lifted the roof from the gym. Having done their best, the red and blue team put up their uniforms with a feeling of satisfaction and a strong hope that next year's team could do the same. Thanks for a swell season, team. We all feel that the season this year was extremely successful. Thanks to the hard Work of the team everyone enjoyed the feeling of a job well done. 180 DeYoung, Polizos, Fisher, and Lamastra were the mainstays who set the pace for last season's '4Big Redsn. From a poor start at the beginning of the spring, the team rallied to shining success, paving their course with Hagstones of victory. The first game on our home ground was going fine, until the snow caused it to be halted during the third inning. However, the score was 5-2 in our favor which showed up exceedingly well. Next the team traveled to Richmond to meet the famed Saints-the result being a most excellent game, scoring 5-5 until the tenth inning. Due to a bad throw then, our opponents sent a winning run across the plate near the conclusion of the game. The Staunton game, the thriller of the season, saw Nick Lamastra striking out 21 out of 23 men -a man-sized feat. Regardless of this wonderful display Fork Union was downed, not without considerable effort, of course. , The end of the season brought a period of some victories ,. z and some losses closing the season with a successful satisfaction 4, f "T for the members of the team.

G. JOHNSON E. R. VADEN C 0-captains Although the prospects for the '4-5 Track Team were a bit uncertain when this book went to press, we still expected to have an excellent season judging from the few that had then signed up. Under the expert leadership of "Mole" Vaden and Penn Johnson, the co-captains, this year,s group of "turf-tearersv was destined, in the minds of the majority of the cadets, to excel all previous records. Heretofore Fork Union has always made a very favorable place in the State Meet through the fine efforts of its track team. Not only will it continue to do that this year, but also it will fwe hopel take the State Championship. Due to Captain McWane's Valiant efforts the past few Fork Union teams have made a record of which the school can be justly proud. The success of this yearis speedy crew seems inevitable. 182 FENCING CLUB J. R. KINTZ Captain For years Fork Union has had a fencing team, but for some time it has remained dormant. They came out strongly, however, this year, due to the good work of the team's manager and its captain. This year the team was very ably managed by Cadet Lt. W. C. Gill. He handled the correspondence and helped to arrange the meets. He was a hard worker and deserves a lot of credit. We had with us again this year, Cadet Lt. I. R. Kintz, who was captain of the team throughout its 744--34-5 season. He was a fine fencer last year and turned out even better this year. This year we had a new boy who turned out to be a good fencer. White did a fine job of holding his own in the fencing meets. We hope to see him back next year better than ever. The team's first meet took place on Saturday, January 20. It was a practice match with Augusta Military Academy. Their next meet was with Baltimore City College, this was the main meet of the year. 183 if iglrlghr- H79 f '.-1'-3-g., - 5...-z ,.vfS. , at af' . .. z . - ':- 'A" 9 91?

As a result of the hard work of Sergeant Walker, the instructor, and Cadet Cpl. Weedon, the manager, this team set amazing standards for the future rifle teams to exceed. Only four members of last years team returned to hand down their talents to the fortunate few who were able to make it this year. These members included G. B. Kidd, who was picked as this years captain, J. C. Bonner, W. C. Gill, and l. O. Perkins. The three awards, given by the military department to members of the rifle team winning them, are Medal for the Highest Score, Medal for the Second Highest Score, and Medal for the Most Improvement. The members of this year's record-breakers are Kidd, Gill, Bonner, Perkins, Sanderhoff, Carneal, Madeira, White, Sweet, Bristow, Clark, Shelter, Stevens, Jackson, Weedon, and Ingram QManagersl. 184 Sta. UN This year under the instruction of Maj. Wildman, our hard-hitting tennis team took shape. The teams three topnotch players were: Al Doudney, R. L. Atwood, and lVlcCaddin. The other members of the team played a lot of hard games during the season. After much practicing and hard work the team came in conflict With the very fast Thomas Jelferson team. All during the Whole match both teams fought with bull-dog tenacity. Fork Union Was forced to yield. The competition was very close. Hereis hoping that next yearis team does as good as the team that we had this year. We all feel sure that as long as Fork Union has boys with a spirit as fine as the spirit possessed by this year's team we shall have many more trophies in our cases. TENNIS A. C.

Many of you had been with us last year, some of you were transfers from other military schools, and some, obviously enough, had never seen nor heard of a military academy before. Wfhat surprises were in store for the young man who had long had the folks at home make his bed, shine his shoes, and clean his room! Do you remember what a blustery day September 13th was? Well, some of your faces harmonized perfectly with the weather. It wasnlt long, however, before you began to find pals, and everything was swell. All of us have to go through that first separation from home and friends, and it's tough, once it's over, however, everythingls OK. There were those first "bull sessionsl' soon after school opened when each was seeing who could tell the tallest story. lid like to have been a fly on the wall and heard some of the stories. They tell me that Allen Creecy-what is it the boys call him? "Meatball,', or something like that-won the prize. He didn't have much on Harry Lobe or ,lack Samakow, though. Ghosts reall 1 turned out at Halloween, and Ca tain Kinzer almost cauffht u with 5. . P . , . Q . P . many of them. Jimmy Sprouse and Charlie Procter didnt quite lose their identity. They were Halnbitiousw ghosts, and may still be 'cwalkingv as far as l know. December rolled around and you were keen for vacation. You wanted to get home and let the folks see what a man you had become, how nice your uniform looked, et Cetera. Expect some of you wanted the girl to take a squint at that red cape. Anyhow, after a swell Christmas play lbelieve it or not, Herman Perkins was the Angell and party on the llth, you began to prepare for your furlough on the 13th. I shall never forget the spruce appearance of the corps and the pride which shone in Dr. Wicker's face as he bade you uGoodbye',. Those days between the first of January and Spring were rather uneventful. With the coming of Easter, however, we witnessed the finest dress parades in the history of the Junior School. At the invitation of the Headmaster, Dr. Wicker, Col. Perkins, and Col. Crockett, came down from the Upper School, and, along with many of the patrons, reviewed a snappy and most colorful lVIother's Day Parade. On this occasion the splendid work which Captain Kinzer had done with the Corps was shown at splendid advantage. To those of you who will be graduated shortly, I extend my heartiest congratula- tions. And I sincerely hope and expect that every one of you, after a pleasant summer vacation, will be with us again next year. 2332? CAPTAIN L, A.

SPRINGER Headmaster It has been difficult for the Headmaster to determine to whom the various awards should go. The academic work of the year has been splendid, and many of the scholastic averages have been close. There are some cadets whose averages have been outstanding, and it is to these that special recognition is given. The Headmaster congratulates all students who have attained averages of ninety or above, and especially those whose averages are such as to merit Junior School Medals. The F.U.M.A. Medal is awarded annually by the Headmaster to the cadet designated as the "Best All Around Cadetn in the Junior School. This is the most coveted medal and is awarded only to the cadet who is outstanding in the Academic, Military, and Athletic Departments of the School. The recipient must be a cadet of the highest integrityg his loyalty to the School must be unquestioned. The Headmaster is pleased to present this medal to Cadet Robert L. Gray for the year 1945. F.

BROWN First Honors Second Honors Third Honors 214' CAPTAIN LARRY KINZER Commandant Under our able Commandant, Captain Kinzer, the Military Department of the Junior School has indeed made progress-this year found us with the smartest, neatest, and best-drilled Cadet Corps that has yet been seen on the north side of the campus. Of course, much of the credit for this improvement must go to the excellent cadet ofhcers. The Battalion Staff includes this year Cadet Lt. Col. R. L. Cray, Battalion Commanderg Cadet Capt. W. A. Cozier, Adjutantg and Cadet Lt. W. G. Frederick, Supply Officer. To the Commanding Oiiicers of the three companies belongs the credit for good disciplineg Cadet Captains J. M. Chase fCo. AJ, R. H. Fleming QCO. BJ, and L. A. Hutcheson QCO. CD. Only thirty-six cadets received this year the coveted Good Conduct Bars for having accumulated less than ten demerits. To these line young men, and to the others of whom we are so proud, we say, uCarry on your good Work in the Upper School, for Fork Union will always be proud of you!" R. L. GRAY W. A. COZIER J. M. CHASE Cadet Lt. Col. Cadet Capt., Adj. Cadet Capt. 215 CAPTAIN LAWRENCE H. MCWANE Director of Athletics The Junior School of the Academy has enjoyed a most successful season in every sport during 1944-4-5. Wartime restrictions have prevented our playing many other Junior Schools. However, we did play football against Hargrave Military Academy, Fluvana County Grade School, Arvonia Grade School, Buckingham Grade School, and the EIGHTH GRADE of the upper school. The only game lost was to the latter. Cadet Lt.-Col. R. L. Gray was captain of our successful team and Cadet Capt. 'cRudy" Fleming assisted him as co-captain. Most of our basketball was confined to an intramural schedule. Cadets Chase, Fleming and Richardson were our most valuable men. Our Golden Gloves schedule was very interesting. One of the highlights of the season was the basketball tournament in which twelve' teams participated. Capt. McWane and Capt. Kinzer, who had been outstanding players themselves, achieved wonderful results with the boys. Cadets R. L. Gray, Kidwall, and Samakow were outstanding in this sport. In all sports our athletes were awarded emblems which they will treasure as evidence of their most successful and enjoyable year in the Junior School of Fork Union Military Academy. R. L. GRAY J. M.

The session, starting with a Hood of sunshine, had the appearance of being one of the most successful years ever passed at Fork Union. Before the day was over most had gotten settled and ready to begin their new Work. Early in October After the first six weeks of hard labor, most of us took a well-earned week-end leave. Many and loud were the rejoic- ings when Col. Crockett announced that leaves would be given the following week-end. Departure was a wonderful feeling after working so hard. October 31 Quietness ruled over the campus for the greater part of the night. During C.Q. there were several false alarms, but after two or three vain attempts most ublood-thirstyl' wolves on the campus retired to the barracks-they had lost their desire to cremate some innocent civilian. Strange to say, hardly any pranks were played. Early in November With the arrival of the permanent 'fmakesw our battalion really got down to work as it had never before done. Most favorable were the comments of members of our military faculty after the first battalion review. The R.O.T.C. unit, this year consisting of four full companies, instead of three as in previ- ous years, struggled to make itself some- thing of which Fork Union Military Academy could be justly proud. IIIGIILIGIIT November 24-th A double-header was this memorable day. First we had our mighty battle of the gridiron with Staunton Military Academy which we unfortunately lost. Everyone was out cheering our team on, though, to show that the cadet corps was back of them. Next we had our delicious Thanksgiving Dinner in the Mess Hall that evening. A school of seven-hundred odd went to bed this night exhausted and full. December 10th Another red-letter day is marked up on our yearis calendar. With the arrival of the S.T.C. Glee Club, their and our glee clubs joined to bring us the best Christmas concert on record. Preceded by a wonderful dinner, this most suc- cessful event was enjoyed by all partici- pating or listening. Wfhe charms of music doth sooth the savage beastw- so saith the ancient sage. fWe have a sneaky idea that the charm was music- ally feminine that nightj January 9 REVOLUTION ln A-Section there came a momentous blast of dynamite proclaiming the rule of the floor proctors to be supreme over the command of any. Spurred on by months of Hconlinementn this uwar strength squadw led by the section first sergeants brought a new regime to power in that theretofore uneventful sec- tion. Wlien their demands had been satisfied and things went their way, then the surprising battle ceased to a quiet murmur of Hwatchful waitingf, 218 z F 1944-1945 February 24-th The Glee Club journeyed off for a return visit to South Hill where they last year had such an eventful and enjoyable week-end. Entertained by the members of the Rotary Club of South Hill and the townspeople, the boys not only aspired musically, but socially as well. Their concert in the school there and their per- formance at one of the churches was something with which we can be pleased. They sang Fork Union to the glories. 'NJA z MM .

IGP ACKNUWLEDGMENTS Again this year, due to the war, The Skirmisher, had to go to press early in February. Although we had even more obstacles to overcome than last year's staff, through the willingness and splendid co-operation of all concerned, we successfully completed our task. To Miss Bernice Kidd for preparing the lists of names for the various classes goes our particular gratitude for a difficult job Well done. To Colonel Perkins and Colonel Crockett for their continued interest and calm encouragement we wish to give our most heartfelt thanks. The section on the Junior School was compiled With the help and co-operation of Major Springer and his staflg without them it would never have been done. For his abiding interest and work on the List of Alumni, the Academy in general and the Skirimisher stall in particular owe a debt of gratitude to Major Waldron. Special thanks should go to Captain Hudgins Who, although not connected with the staff this year, gave helpful advice gained through years of experience. Last of all, We Wish to express to the other members of our staif and to the other cadets who so willingly helped, our sincere appreciation in completing our enormous task. Here is the result of our Work. We hope it is pleasing to all. JAMES R. KINTZ, Editor-in-Chief GEORGE L.
