THE TECHITE 1927
THE CADET CORPS
By Hugh H. Hussey
TARTING with two companies this organization, the High School
Cadet Corps, has developed, through the supreme efforts of its per-
'Wl ' sonnel, until today it is a magnificent brigade.
The history of the cadet corps at Tech started while we were still part
of Central but its real beginning was in 1903, soon after Tech was com-
pleted. Since that time Tech has won the company competitive drill three
more times than any other school, and since this is the event of the cadet
year, need more be said? Tech cadets have always acquitted themselves
nobly in other competitions, and, even more, it can be said that the men
who have borne the rifle acquit themselves nobly in the greatest of com-
petitions--life! The Tech cadets have been foremost in the ranks of
those of distinction at the comparatively recently organized summer cadet
camp. Tech has always had its share of Brigade Commanders, to be ex-
plicit, more than its share. And so, an explanation of why the officers
and men of the Tech companies are paid such marked respect by their
classmates and teachers is clear.
From 1920 until the present year there has been a period during which
Tech cadets in competition with their companion regiments have been con-
tinuously bested. In 1921 the War Games were started and until this
year Tech has always rated second or third-never first.
This year beginning anew under the tutelage of Captain Van Pelt,
Assistant Instructor in Military Science and Tactics, our four company
battalion under the command of Major Leroy Voshall has already proved
its worth. First, Company C under Captain Orin Blandford placed fifth
in the brigade inspection conducted by Colonel Alpha, which, considering
the early date of the inspection and the inefficiency in former years, was
quite a feat, second, Company B under Captain Hugh Hussey was unoffi-
cially placed first in an inspection conducted by Colonel Deemes, and he,
because of lack of time, did not even see the rest of the battalion, third,
for the first time in the history of the Inter-regimental War Game Compe-
tition, Tech placed first, most likely due to the interest and ability of
Captain Van Pelt and the earnest efforts put forth by Company B's team
consisting of Captain Hugh Hussey, First Lieutenant Richard Essex, Sec-
ond Lieutenant Spencer Hewins, and Sergeants Beall, Stelzer, Tyler 'and
Griggsg fourth, for the first time in seven, years Tech is possessed of a
battalion, which has the morale, training, and efficiency in both officers and
men to turn out placing companies. Perhaps we should not say that it is
the best we have had for several years, for the battalions in the past years
have been equally good, but always falling short because of poor instruc-
tion or lack of morale in the ranks.
And so, we believe that as you read this 1927 Techite you will also
know that Tech cadets have carried on their splendid start to the full
realization of our, and their, fondest hopes.
