we may provide ourselves with a means ol: pleasant memories,
and that we may round oil: the school year successfully, we
have composed this year boolc. Whether this has been ac-
complished or not time alone will tell. IF this volume does
prove acceptable and enioyable to its readers, our humble
efforts will have been more than repaid.

VVake: the silver dusk returning
Up the beach of darkness brims,
And the ship of sunrise burning
Strands upon the eastern rims.
Wake: the vaulted shadow shatters,
Tramples to the floor it spanned,
And the tent of night in tatters
Straws the sky-pavilioned land.
Up, lad, up, 'tis late for lying:
Hear the drums of morning playg
Hark, the empty highways crying
"Who'll beyond the hills away P"
Towns and countries woo together,
Forelands beacon, belfries call,
Never lad that trod on leather
Lived to feast his heart with all.
Up, lad: thews that lie and cumber
Sunlit pallets never thriveg
Morns abed and daylight slumber
VVere not meant for man alive.
Clay lies still, but blood's a roverg
Breath's a ware that will not keep
Up, lad: when the journey's over
There'll be time enough to sleep.

Don't he afraid, madamg behind all those medals is just black Armstrong. A
strict officer, lack is nevertheless a staunch friend and one to lie proud of. Quiet,
sincere and very earnest, to those who know him best, he is nnswervingly loyal
and considerate. l'lis record, more than any words, suffices to show his qualities.
For allfround efficiency, we unhesitatingly nominate .lack as Company 's
best C. O. in recent years. He knows his military science backwards and for-
wards and plans to follow the military profession, for which he is so aptly fitted.
Studies? "'l'opsl" .lack has been a consistent "QU" man during his entire career
here. CNotice the decorations lj A second Daniel lloone and an Afl linesman, we
can only call it versatility and let it go at that. You will leave a lot of friends,
Jack, and will be missed hy faculty and cadets alike.

"Pm Head" they call him. hut that little head rests on eapahle shoulders.
George is a South Atlantic hoxing champion, and also a good studentffrather
rare for the ''stumhle-l1ums." Hlhat a man he is! Not so hig, hut oh, hoy! don't
try and put anything' over on him. Tough as he is he is a true gentleman, and
well-liked hy all. "Capt loc" watches over him like a hahy, and so does some
fair maiden hack in good old Cincinnati.
George was a eo-captain on the hoxing squad and his line spirit and courage-
ous hoxing aided greatly the morale of this team. Fighting in the ll9-pound class
he would train down nine or ten pounds every week, and then hop into the ring
and hatter some foe down in one round.
'Tin Plead" is a first sergeant of the highest degree, his famous "For lluty
Today" was the cause for much good natured kidding. His grunfness was only a
false front, for he was everyhody's friend, and was willing to help in any way.
George will lind his own way in this world and will make a success of whatf
ever he tackles.

Yes, he's from Chicago, hut don't run for cover-that's only a camera you
see in his hand. Horn in the far South, Schuyler later moved to Memphis, Ten-
nessee, and thence to Chicago. A deserter from the rehel ranks he is, hut never-
theless, a good fellow. '
Oh, how stupid of me not to explain that other article Schuyler carries
around. That's his Nl. Clntelligence Quotaj which has caused him no end
of trouhle, going so far as to hrand him with the quaint appellation "l. Q."
NN'ith a snap, snap here, and a snap, snap there, he goes ahout recording
scenes and people on tilm, desiring mostly to photograph heautiful women, hut
heing limited in such a desirahle task at a military school. he has forced his
ahility on his fellow cadets. claiming that he has enough evidence Qespecially of
the Tome tripj to hlackmail the entire corps.
NN'hen asked ahout his plans for the future, he just sat hack and reluctantly
admitted that he was a staunch advocate of the hlet come what may" type of
persons. lle did go so far as to say that he desired to acquire a lot of "cush,,' and
then settle down with a housekeeper named "Ruth,"
Regardless of all that llies hack and forth, we feel conhdent that Schuyler
llissell will turn out for the best.

"Drad'l is the perfect "lover." A fornier play boy who gave up the lmright
lights for the "little woman." lD'ick goes around with a look that reminds us of
one of Capt. Joe's boys, but no, he isn't punchy, it's just his little '4darlin" hc's
thinking of. Some nights when Dickls blowing taps on his little lmugle those who
have turned off their radios or stopped half way down the ropesshello 'Traut and
Hilln-will suddenly hear the "Indian Love Call" break the eveningls stillness.
Good luck Dick, may all your children be lnuglers.
"Dickey" is a sweet little hall player, but he gets cold in his arins from sitting
in the window thinking of "lovey-doveyf' His grades are not the best in the
school, but many a lad would he proud of them.
Richard wants to be a "forester," so he can guide youth on the beaten path
Dick is a Swell kid, captain of the rifle team, president of XYoodrow Wilson
Literary Society, wellfliked by all, and one of the most handsoine.

Here, indeed, is a rarity in the shape of a second-year lieutenant. Rrafford,
whose academic activities are l'tops," whose athletic activities are 'ltopsf' and
whose personality is Hops," is an A-1 all ,round boy.
His marks leave nothing to be desired. Einstein, himself, would have good
reason to be jealous. All who know Holi are attracted by his friendly smile. At
football Bob ranks well and plays a hard game.
His military accomplishments were readily seen by the P. M. and T., who
made lirarford a corporal during his iirst year and a lieutenant during his second
year, an exceedingly rare thing.
Here, in short, is a man well fitted for all to come in life and we foresee that
lie will go far along the road of success.

Now we come to a real problem, folks. There is so much to be said for this
boy that we can only mention a few of his accomplishments within our page lim-
its. Hailing from way out thar in the Hoosier State, Harry, t'l'3oozle," Booble-
berry," or what have you, figgered held orta Come East to get a little book larnin',
and he accomplished his purpose.
One of Lieutenant Slattery's marksmen, golfer sans equal, top-kick of HC"
Company, and Colonel Sutherland's pride and joy-what speak louder than
these? And if you detect faint notes of music eminating from the lower regions
of Memorial Hall some afternoon, you invariably stop and say, "Fats VValler!
No, Eddie Duchinll' But investigation will reveal none other than our "Bram,"
Vlfhat keeps him from being perfect? His puns! His shrill cackle is a fa-
miliar sound around Stauntong when it resounds cadets smile wisely to them-
selves, knowing that some unlucky soul has had his words ripped from his very
mouth and twisted into a shapeless heap of mere nonsense. VVe fear that it has
become an obsession with this punniest of punsters, but having been subjected to
it for two years we've come to where we hate to see it go.

of the Latin Americas. Tony is more or less of a fixture at S. M. A.g it is hard
to reconcile ourselves to his leaving. Following in the footsteps of his ancestors,
he is the possessor of a musical soul, and accordingly is a member of the mueh-
abused, yet well-liked, school band. p .
Of course he's an officer! Haven't you heard the expression, 'fYou canit

integrity, just present the question to 'Major Louisell. It is safe to assume that

Hailing from far off Canada is Wlalter B. CSlimyj Clark. It beats me, though,
how such a clean-cut, eilicient fellow like Vvalter drags down such a nickname.
My! what change we have observed in this lad during these two years. Last year
he was sick and tired of this place from the start,but we see he's back again this
year. Is he just existing? Illl say not! he's that industrious fellow who dishes out
oil, gun patches, and laundry slips to "BH Company. Around here such a job is
termed "Supply Sergeantf'
Walter aspires to go to the University of North Carolina and there take up
a study of the tobacco business. W'ell, Slimy, more smoke to you.
When confronted with the question of women, Nlialter screws up his mouth
and says, UVery few and far between: the future looks gloomyf'
Our efficient 'Supl' sergeant plans to dish it out as a "leather pusher," also,
having spent many a weary hour down in Captain loe's boxing salon. just by
way of mention. we might add that Wlalter is an accomplished f'Mexican Athletefl
one of those things that go into action during Saturday and Sunday nights free
Halter is a steady fellow and we think he'll win over all Qincluding the girlsj.

This past year Laird has taken things very seriously. He roomed with Mont-

No, really, folks, he is a big handsome boy of the early 30's and the drum

He started out as a common horn-blower-or was it a drummer? VVe can't
just remember which-it was in the last decade, 'way back in 1931. Since that
time he has been everything from private to captaing substitute to star. VVhen he
came to this noble institution he brought his long legs with him and has, for every
year, reached the finish line first. Believe us, boys and girls, he is a track man of
no mean calibre! VVe wish him success at Brown University.

Like his cousin, "I. Q." Bissell, Fred is one of those fanatics on photography.
Shame, shame! They say he takes those kinds of pictures that respectable com-
panies won't print, so he prints his own.
Now, get this straight, although Fred outwardly seems to be so quiet and
reserved, hels really a fun-maker of the first magnitude-a sho' 'nuff clown.
Although we've known Fred only a short while, we all like him and give him
our sincere wishes for a happy future.
What to say about Norman is a real problem. A clay student, this is his tirst
year with usg thus we do not know him nearly as well as we would like to. His
chief asset is his quiet modesty. If any person has ever heard him utter so much
as a word about himself, we do not know that person. In spite of this commend-
able reticence, we have learned that he is well-mannered, well-spoken, and alto-
gether a pleasant fellow.
Though he is new to the Academy, Norman has participated in a great many
activities. Chief among these was basketball, in which he was an outstanding
contributor to the success of the bandls flashy team. We cannot be certain, but
we have reason to suspect that he is also a "hound" with the women.

he packed his little Satchel and left for parts unknown.
Once leaving the 'lsmolty cityf, he was surprised and delighted to see what
was beyond the dark clouds haliitually hanging over his city. Hence he hit for
the mountains and checked in at S. M. A.

always stealing his cigarettes. VVhen Hiekman's relatives were at school, and it
became known that he was going to do some driving, the Staunton Police Depart-
ment issued a warning to all mothers to keep their children indoors. Yes, he
really is that good a driver. VVhen l'HiekymanH ran out onto the football field
it looked as though he were giving an impersonation of the 'lrear" of one of the
Greyhound huses. Wfhen 'lChuck" says Hhelloll' he invariably grins from ear to
ear. Get him to tell you about the pillow fights on the football trip to Annapolis.
Boy! Did he take a beating!
Right now "Hickl' is undecided as to whether he should get married, continue
in school, or run for sheriff of "Skunk Hollow County" and keep that otliee in
the family. Whatever he does, he'l1 undoubtedly do a good job of it, but we'll
wish him lots of luck anyway.

A new boy at the Academy, Don has proven that he's 'fgot what it takes." It
is a real pity that he will leave before we become fully acquainted with him, but
you can't stop the wheels of progress. Time marches on! VVhat must be, must be!
Fate is inexorable! Etc., etc.
Great rolls of thunder! Here's another bandsman! There must be something
to this organization, half of our seniors belong to it. At any rate, it makes music.
We don't know enough about Mac to venture an opinion, but this we can and
will say: he is politeness itself, a gentleman and a scholar, and a connoisseur of
the opposite sex. The trail of broken hearts he has left behind him is almost in-
finity itself. Watch out, girlsg this chap is clangerous!

One of New York'sX prize gifts to dear old S. 'M. A. is HBill" Munson, an all
'round fellow who can give and take with the best of 'em. In his one year at the
Academy he has made an outstanding record for himself both in his academic and
military work. XVhen not pondering over his books "Billy, can usually be found
taking an active part in one of Dan Postis Ubull sessions." 4
Our lad also made a name for himself on the gridiron last season. Although
he tops the scales at a mere 160, he waged a strenuous training program, and as Z1
result, was the hero on the l55-lb. football team. He also goes in for the finer
things in life and has taken an active part in the wiodi-OXXX lWilson Literary So-
ciety. ln conclusion, we might add that Hill is an upward, onward, and outstande
ing chap whom his home town of Granville should be very proud to claim.

temperament? Southern. The boy? Southern. In other words, ladies and gentle-
men, we are trying to convey to you the idea that Carlton is as thoroughly a
Dixielander as his great-grandfather was in the days when his plantation was
worked by hundreds of slaves. This young North Carolinian doesnlt even know
there was a VVar between the Statesg and if he did, it would make absolutely no
difference whatsoever. That's the type of character we have to deal with, folksg
easy-going, slow-spoken, dangerous, and indomitable.
Carlton is also a hound with the ladies. NVe could say more, but prudence

Our task becomes easierg we now have some real raw material. Take a look

Southerner-a real one from Atlanta, stronghold of Dixie. Dan, along with Rus-
sell, johnson, McNair, Patch, Messer, and others of their stamp-IOOW rebel

a Southerner unbeatable. Faced with academic failure at the beginning, he has

In his fifth year at Staunton, 'tSenseless" Cmore truth than nicknainej is a
Looey in Ye Olde Bande. Three years on "The Shrapnell' and one on the "Kable-
gram" indicate that the Faculty Advisers of these literary chefs d'oeuvre recog-
nize his talent. He's an artist, too. He gets great pleasure from drawing chickens
and milk bottles in physics diagrams of ice-boxes. V
In the Sporting VVorld of S. M. A., Sencer has found recognition. Basket-
ball, baseball, and football have all felt his master's touch. He claims the distinc-
tion of having been the youngest and smallest cadet in school his first year.
Throughout his stay he has been of much assistance to the Cotillion Club.
Modest, he vvill speak little of himself except to state that he wears glasses,
an obvious fact of interest only to his optician. His brilliant sense of humor and
clever brain will, we feel sure, be of great value to hint after he leaves the
walls of Dartmouth College and enters into the future.

Now, friends, glance your peepers on this healthy young lad, for he hails
from way down yonder in Mississippi. He's no Uhell-raiser," but he surely likes to
get into a good ol' rough and tumble free-fer-all when the opportunity presents
itself. Claude is always welcomed to join one of those everlasting so-called Ubull
sessions" not only because he's an outstanding tall story teller, but because he is a
very interesting lad. At times itis rather hard for us to believe his fantastic yarns,
but it's all in a "bull session."
To look at him one would think he was one of those "goody-goodyl' boys,
because he always looks as clean as an altar tabernacle. No, on the contrary he's
not the "goody-goodyn kind, but is more respondent to the he-nian type. Vvhy,
he's so tough they had to break his arm to put him out of our last football game.
Pardon us, if we forgot to mention that Claude was one of our star 'lgridders."
Besides being so athletically inclined, he is also one of our few 90? students.
Anyone who has ever met him will take an inveterate liking to him, and many
will say "Good-bye" to him with sincere regrets. Good luck, Claude, we all know
you will meet with success in the future as you have at S. M. A.

The Junior School
For the second year now, this company, composed of cadets in the Junior
School with some Senior School cadets as officers and non-coms, has held a
position as a military organization in the corps.
"D" Company being a comparatively new organization, it may be well to get
an idea of the junior School as a background for most of the company. 'The
Junior School might be considered as the ideal place to attend school. The HJ.
lD.'s", living in a separate building as they do, going to bed earlier and getting up
later than the rest of the corps, and having no night study period, lead a com-
paratively 'lsoftu life. Captain Dodge, the principal, and Captain Noonan, in-
structor, as well as Mrs. Learned, the school matron, help pave the way in
making the Junior School a success and in making it easier for a junior School
cadet to enter the Senior School. All the comforts and pleasures of home, and
then some, combine to make life of the HJ. D'.,s" a very pleasant thing, indeed-
with one great exception, drill.
The mention of drill brings us up to UTY' Company proper. Out of much dis-
order, toil and practice fwith a little yelling by the oflicersl have brought "D"
Company into shape as a military outfit. The company has even risen to the
The Junior School
height where it has "nosed outl' 'ICU and "A" companies in dress parade "lines"
Qvvhich fact, incidentally, irked the respective company commandersj.
During football season HD" Company's first sergeant, Shaw fwho later
became sergeant-majorj, was the idol of all the juniors. Our hero was the re-
ceiver of such shouts of praise as 'tBoy, look at Shaw play" and "That's our
lirst-sergeant" coming from the "J, D." section of the grandstand. Also a
murmur, whether of acclaim or otherwise, was heard in the "DH Company seats
in the assembly hall whenever Seiberling, the company commander, arose to
receive an academic award.
Among the familiar sayings current on The Hill this year, "D" Company
contributed several, including: Hlickerd, look to the front V' Perhaps the two most
picturesque characters connected with the company are "Ruben Orme, lieutenant,
and Hjunioru Seiherling, the captain Cboth of whom probably joined the company
to get out of reveillej. It is mainly to their hands that the military supervision of
the company has been intrusted.
The graduating captain wishes to thank the officers, non-coms, and privates
of the company for the cooperation they have given him during his term of
service and hopes they have an even better organization next year.

The P. 'M. S. and T. knew what excellent training would be given each
cadet in HA" Company, for when the company rosters were first published in
September it was discovered that the largest company on The Hill was Company
"A", Moreover, this trust was not misplaced in that, besides being generally ac-
knowledged the best drilled outfit, it is considered a very serious threat toward
"honor company," just as it was the year previous. Vfhen in November the per-
manent appointments were read out, jack Greene was made captain of the com-
pany, McAdoo second in command, Tiappen first platoon commander, Brafford
second platoon commander, and Ingram an extra lieutenant stationed in the file
closers. Later, however, as was to be expected, new oflicers were appointed, from
time to time. Sam Hall, "Itzy" Hunter, and Dick Burr increased the number of
second-year lieutenants in the company. Brafford, also, was made a second-year
lieutenant of Company UA". Grisham, Davis, G. P., Jones, Bissell, Yarborough,
Karger, and later Watkins and Hubinger, all as sergeants, have helped immensely
in preserving and enlarging the prestige of the company. With such a personnel
as has just been mentioned there is little or no wonder that "A" Company has
made such a good record for the year-a fine group of fellows ably commanded,
with the proper spirit of teamwork and cooperation.
This year, especially, "A" Company has contributed greatly to athletics, not
only by supplying the different school teams with individual men, but also by
putting out winning company teams in the intramural sports. Retaining three men
of last year's successful teamiBurr, Brafford, and Jones-together with yVa1'-
wick and Kauffman, the company basketball team had an undefeated season,
although at times barely overcoming the stiff opposition given by Company MCU.
Likewise the softball teams, captained by Burr and Greene has shown the same
winning ability and is looking forward to a successful season. To Captain Howie's
football team "A" Company contributed Greene, Laux, Ruth, jones, Brafford,
Spuhlerg to the basketball team Spuhler, Laux, Ruth, Newbury, to the swimming
team Grisham, lVlcAdoo, Tappen, Rubnerg to the baseball team Brafford, Ruth,
Richardson, Spuhler, Lauxg to the track team Lewis, Puett, Kauffman, Bassette,
Eglin, King, Heal, and to the boxing team Greene and Beal. Besides aiding these
main sports, the company is able to boast of many men who have won places for
themselves on other teams, among these are Brafford and Smith, who helped to
organize a gym team, something new in the way of sports hereg VVarwick, a
prominent member of the tennis team, Kitchens, Dawkins, Diaz on the rifle team,
and a few others who have shown interest in a golf team. Indeed, it is interesting
to note that in "A" Company there is a co-captain of the boxing team, jack
Greene, a co-captain of the baseball team, Bob Rraffordg and Spuhler, captain of
both the football and basketball teams. Is it possible for any other company to
say as much concerning its personnel?
However, the talents of the fellows lie not entirely in their brain, for there
are many intellectuals in the company, too. The most eminent of these are Braf-
ford and Kitchens, who lead the entire school scholastically.
This write-up would not be complete unless the compliment paid up by the
inspectors in the recent government inspection were told. Upon the completion
of movements in close order drill assigned to the company, the inspecting officer
remarked that the executions were well done and that it was a fine exhibition.
The following clay at the conclusion of the attack problem given to Company "A",
the inspector stated that the duties were correctly performed, that it was the
best solution yet offered in any of the schools inspected this far, and that it was
as good as any solutions made at VVest Point. Such a commendation speaks for
As a whole, "AH Company is a well-drilled, efficient company commanded by
able leaders. The individuals who compose the organization are a fun-loving
bunch of fellows who are conscientious enough when there is work to be done, but
above all they are loyal to their company, for they realize the good-fellowship
UA" Company has become an 'finstitutionl' within an institution. Each man
in the company feels his responsibility to the outfit as a whole and each man en-
deavors to make "AH Company the most perfect military organization on The
Hill. The spirit of the men within this company is excellent. VVith this spirit
there is no such thing as failure. As the years come and go the present personnel
of Cadet Captain Greene's organization will look with pride on the ranks of good
old HA" Company.

"B" Company enjoyed a most successful season, captained by the popular
Johnny Messer. Johnny was ably assisted by Wilson, Stevens,-who moved up
from the second platoon to take Kiefer's place when the latter was Ubustedu-
and t'Big Boy" Montgomery, leader of the second platoon.
In sports "B" Company was well represented. Messer, Johnson, Wilson,
Hill Conver, Meenehan were football stars on Captain Howie'si gritty squad.
Conver, Andersen and Biehle were South Atlantic "champs". Messer also par-
ticipated in swimming, and was voted the "best athlete" by the Senior class. On
the track team the Duff boys, Norman and Grace well represented "BU Com-
pany. Qur Company teams were of the best. The basketball and softball teams
were "hot stuff".
The first squad of the first platoon caused Stevens, the platoon leader, much
worry for a time. Stevens' patience, at times, was near the breaking point trying
to control the boys. They were in reality one of the best squads when it came to
parades, but at other times' their talking, dirty shoes, and tobacco chewing had
Stevens half crazy.
The Country Club of "B" Company was in Messer and Wilson's room. The
rooms surrounding them held such prominent socialites as Eldwin Smith, Colling-
wood-the ladies' man-, Biehle, Conver, and many others. These popular boys'
friends patronized this section. The usual entertainment of this Country Club
was furnished by "Milt" Conver, the Cincinnati "hot-chan boy, also known as the
"one man band". Milt had many talents that kept the boys in a constant uproar.
His vocal refrains were of the best, and his famous imitation of a circus barker
was in demand by all. Milt has a look of dissipation at times-, but this was not
from anything rash, he gets that look from losing sleep trying to locate the
station his pretty sister sings on. Milt is coming back next year to help the new
boys feel at home.
"B" Company, at the time this was written, was ahead in Company efficiency.
The boys were proud of Don Wilson and Johnny Messer, their leaders, and there
wasn't anything they wouldn't do for them. The boys cooperated wonderfully,
and there wasn't a better, snappier, more colorful company on The Hill.
Since Companies "A" and "C" won honor company in ,35 and '36, respec-
tively, it is, by rights, the time for HB" Company to prove its integrity, and if
hard work, a wide-awake attitude of its members and previous success mean
anything, "B" Company is to be sure gradually taking the lead for this year's
Honor company. For example, hardly a week passes that this motly organization
does not gain the privilege of 10:30 leave for being the top company for the
week, Also, either the entire company or a platoon is holding a pep meeting
every few days, proving that the officers take a great interest in the companyfs
'foward the end of the year 'fBarney" Fisher was transferred to "B" Com-
pany. Barney was a first year man and a good one. His countenance was not
that of Gable, but his spirit showed his real self during the football season, and
his willingness to help all gained him many friends.
The boys of "B" Company, for a pastime, have been uniting lately with "C"
Company in tying ropes around door knobs and then attaching 'them to the rail-
ings and posts. Certain boys have been forced to miss a few formations as a re-
sult of this. But the best sport of the year was trying to fmd out who was throw-
ing the 'ftorpedoes" at the Guard House. For awhile old South Barrack was
shelled day and night by the unseen sniper. Some thought it was "them low 'C'
boys" shooting over "Old South" with sling shots. Finally, a member of our own
honorable Company owned up to it, and took his punishment like a true veteran.
"BU Company is a happy, clean-cut group of boys and officers who have
left a fine record. We hope that the '37-'38 Company will follow in their foot-
steps and bear on her present prestige.

HCM Company, Honor Company fan honor given yearly to the outstanding
company in the battalionj of 1936 has carried on its ancient traditions with
credit. jack Armstrong, efficient company commander, is to be complimented
greatly for his efforts. Faced with a superabundance of raw material at the begin-
ning of the year, Armstrong has shaped his company into a disciplined, well-
drilled outfit. He has been ably assisted by his capable company officers, Foran,
Knight, Downs, Wayne, and Russell funtil the latter took a bit of leave at the
wrong timeb. These men have all risen from the ranks of "CH Company after
several years, and are well acquainted with the workings of this organization.
Situated on the third gallery of South Barrack, Company "C", it is sad to
relate, has done its share of "hell-raising." Such cherubs as Laux, Fisher, Pav-
luchik, Spuhler, Shupska, Foltz, and MacPherson probably do not know the
meaning of Hbarrack regulations". Foster, Foran, Walling, Thomas, Martin, B. B.,
and Kehs had their fling before Justice four Commandantj stepped in. And
we must not forget the far-famed "Alley": Armstrong, Seiberling, Patch, Knight,
Andersen, Ingram, Russell, and Downs. For two years this group has occupied
this choice spot with but two changes, and their reputation is wide-spread. "Light-
house" Ingram, the son of an undertaker, is perhaps the most humorous boy in
school, Russell and Patch, it is said, find pleasure in carnivals and for some un-
known reason prefer to sleep on-rather than under-the roof of this barrack.
NVe must pity the sad plight of Seiberling, who, having constantly been associated
with the Junior School, has apparently reverted to his second childhood, Arm-
strong, the military prodigy, must be includedgiand Downs finds that rattlesnakes
are more to be preferred than women.
In spite of these internal rumblings, "C" Company is a smooth-working or-
ganization, and it is a real pleasure to watch these lads swing past in parade. They
take their work seriously, and the results speak for themselves.
The company appears to hold a monopoly on the Varsity athletes who have
brought home many laurels. In company athletics Company "C" has always been
in the forefront, and the majority of the company participate. They came in
second in the S. M. A. basketball league, under the capable direction of 'fTeepee"
Knight. Softball, its team captained by XVayne, has been a great success, and the
team shows promise of being first in the league.
In the varsity line we find, among others: Matuza, of football, basketball,
and track fame, McNair, another pigskin hurler, in addition to being an expert
shortstop, Pavluchik, the fighting Irishman, who is known for line work in foot-
ball, basketball, and baseball, Foltz, who plays football and boxes, Funke, another
boxer and a South Atlantic champ, and, last, but far from least, Romeo Schup-
ska, expert footballer, and pole-vaulter.
Ye olde thirde gallerie provides a debating ground for lovers and non-lovers.
Among the first group are Bradstreet, "Always-on-the-phone" Lees, "Polygamist"
Armstrong, 'ALover" Foran, Orme, whose guiding light is Miss Ginger "Swing-
time" Rogers, "Punch-drunk" Andersen fthe girl's name is Annej, "Doris,'
Downs, and Patch, on good terms with -----W. The last was formerly a
dame-hater Qwe don't blame himj but alack and alas! after a trip to Georgia was
converted. The saner group includes "Sour-grapes" Wo1'den, "Never-trust-a-
female" Knight, "junior-in-january" Seiberling, "Dirty Dan" Post, who by an
almost unanimous vote was chosen the biggest Mexican athlete of his class,
'fBaby Facel' Matuza, who would rather face a gun than a woman, and "Tum-
blerl' Orr, who refuses to give a reason for his aversion.
It is hoped that in succeeding years the members of this famous outfit will
continue to bring glory upon the company and carry out her rich traditions.

With a roll of drums and a blare of trumpets, the Band leads the corps of
cadets to the parade. Here it comes down the drive with Drum 'Major and Cap-
tain John Gilbert at its head. What a sight! Flashing, twirling baton, bright gold
braid, shining brass buttons-these cadets who give us that stirring music that
makes us keep in step, and makes us march to attention.
But hold a minute! What have those guys done now? VVell, I'll beethey've
changed step again! They just can't keep in step! Forever through the ages goes
the eternal argument between the companies and the band. Anyone who is at the
scene of the conclusion of the parade can always hear a bunch of fellows trying
to convince the "Huters" from the Band that the horn-tooters are no good. But
the fellows from the Band are not a bit bashfulg in fact, it might even be said
that they are fond of themselves. At least they are fond of their playing, as can
eas'ly be seen, or rather heard, before any formation. just come in toward North
liarrack a little closer-you'll hear the boys warming up. And when they warm
up, they get hot. They don't even let you hear yourself think.
But those fellows in the Band are a pretty swell bunch of fellows at that.
They have even played all-request concerts for us. In fact, they have even
played some pieces which no one has heard before. At any rate they claim they
were Pieces. Who knows?
For some unknown reason, the Band seems to really rate this year. They
even had the privilege of taking a bus ride to Mercersburg to help the football
team. They had a very happy trip, except that Sencer, who plays one of those
cute little horns, left a little of his scalp on one of the ceiling lights on the bus!
just ask him about it! They tell me that Bill Borda enjoyed himself at the bus
terminal in Harrisonburg! Oh, oh! What a life!
Under the very competent leadership of johnny Gilbert, commonly known
as 'tGil," the Band did some very fancy lettering at the football games, helping
in every way possible to keep the morale of the cadets at the highest peak. And
a swell job they did, too! When one of those good C. 8: O. trains was late coming
to Waynesboro, the Band did a very excellent job of keeping the corps in good
spirits, and at the same time showing to Waynesboro what a good band sounds
like, by playing their full repetoire and even a few which were not in the repe-
In addition to having "Gil" as drum major for the second year, the Band was
lucky to have him as their commander. "Gil" has really done a real job this year,
taking a lot of green material at the beginning of the year and,with the help of
his lieutenants, Sencer, Aurand and Cavallo, made a real military organization out
of them. "Gil" has become very dear in the hearts of all the Band boys and we
will be sorry to lose him this year. Good luck, John!
To the lieutenants and non-coms go the congratulations of many in taking
their orders and performing their duties without a hitch during the entire year.
They have made North Barrack one of the best barracks due to a lot of patience
and perseverence. To those who are leaving, our hats are off to you! You have
done a good job and not without rewards.
But don't get the idea the Band is only a military organization. The members
do pretty well by themselves on the social side of life. The Band boys even put
on their own dance which turned out to be one of the best informals of the year.
And they are well represented at formals and other social affairs. lJon't let this out,
but a number of the "lluters'l went over to Stuart Hall one afternoon to get their
pictures taken with the gals. VVhoops, my dear!
Well, fellows, it has all been rivalry in good fellowship and in the spirit of
fun-making. We've had a sweet time giving you the razzberries and it is about

The Honor Committee
To obtain membership on this organization is undouhtedly the greatest honor
that can he achieved at Staunton. Ifmhodying as it does all the highest ideals and
traditions of the school, the Honor Committee should prove to he one of the most
henehcial influences on the student hody. Its memhers are chosen hy the comhined
vote of the faculty and the Hold hoys"-a choice which expresses more than
anything else the high esteem in which the character and personal integrity of
these boys are held.
The ofticial duly of the Honor Committee is to act as a military court, and to
take action against violations of the Honor System. lts real purpose, however,
goes far deeper than that. By its very existence it tends to elevate the honor and
character of the corps of cadets, as well as to serve as a valuable aid to the disci-
plinary system. Who can tell how many boys have henehtted immensely in later
life as a result of the moral training they received from the Honor Committee and
Honor System at 5. M. A.?
The Honor Committee of 19361937 differed from those of preceding years
in that it had thirteen members instead of the usual ten. This does not include
the Superintendent, Commandant and Headmaster, who have individual votes.

The XV. XV. l-. S., as it is more frequently called, was organized some seven-
teen years ago, with its fundamental purpose to teach M. A. cadets the art of
public speaking. After a few years, Major lirice, still the 5ociety's mentor, took
the helm and led the society to higher success than ever before.
Some years back, the NY. NY. l.. had, for several years, a strong debating
team, so strong, in fact, that after a time all other clubs in the State refused to
debate with it. This caused interest in the Vtioodrow XYilson to lagg it is now fast
The XN'oodrow Wilson literary Society, for a while unnoticed by the major-
ity of cadets, is rising again. Soon it will reach and pass the peak of prosperity
to which it had climbed in former years.
The Cotillion Club
I I M
" i i i f f- i
The Cotillion Club. in coordination with its faculty advisers, has complete
control over practically :ll the dances given at 9. N. A. lf, at any time during
the year, any other recognized organization of the cadet corps wishes to hold a
dance, members of the Cotillion Club are usually consulted for advice and any
help that the Club is able to give,
NYhen, in the early part of the fall, the Cotillion Club was organized, it was
decided that the number of dances during the year would be limited to two
each month with two dances during lfinals. This rule, of course, had to be fairly
tlexible in order to take care of any special occasions that might arise unforeseen
throughout the year. The rule went on to state that there would be four formal
dances at various timesff'I'hanksgiving, lXlid-winter. lfaster, and at Finalsg the
other dances, informal, would be held at different times during the progress of
the school year.
The Cotillion Club has charge of not only the plmning of the dances, but
also the arrangement of the dances. Some one has to hire the orchestrasg some one
has to decorate the gymnasium where all the dances are heldg some one has to sell
tickets for the dances. These are some of the duties of the members of the Cotil-
lion Club. Other duties are the many social gestures that are a part of the
customs of Staunton-the receiving line. the "stag" line, ushers, cnd the like. All
of this is left to the Cotillion Club.
As always, much of the credit given the Cotillion Club is due to the very
helpful work done by the Club's faculty adviser- -Captain Frederick 1. tiodshalk
Captain Ciodshalk hrs been instrumental in seeing that the financial end of the
dances is kept up to the standard where it belongs. lt is pleasing to note that that
particular part of the obligations of the Club is far above the mark set by the
clubs of by-gone years.
Much credit goes to Captain ID. T, l.ehman for his advice and assistance in
decorating' the dance hall.
The Rifle Team
Despite the able coaching of Lieutenant Raymond T. Slattery and the leader-
ship of team captain, Richard Bradstreet, the rifle team was unable to win 11131157
matches this season. During the year the team tired in tifteen matches.
The cadets won from the following schools: La Salle Military Academy,
Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Augusta Military Academy, and Gettysburg
College. Losses were suffered at the hands of Roosevelt Military Academy,
Kemper Military School, Maryland University, McKinley High School, Augusta
Military Academy, Fishlnurne Military School, New Mexico Military Academy,
Oklahoma Military Academy, and VVashington University.
The high spot of the season came when the Kable shooters iinally hit their
stride and annexed second place in the Second Corps area match, thus earning
the right to tire in the National Competition. The team also tired in the Williani
Randolph Hearst Trophy match.
During the course of the year the team took trips to ,Augusta Military Acad-
emy, Fishhurne Military School, and Maryland University. All the cadets
enjoyed shooting together, and, though they were not always successful. they are
to be congratulated on their sportsmanship and good fellowship.

The Y. M. C. A.
This year's Y. M. C. A. has upheld the traditions of this time-honored
organization to the fullest extent. Credit must lie given to l'resident Seiherling
and to Captain XY. Pence, the faculty adviser, for their almle directorship of
this hody. This is the lirst year that Captain l'ence has acted in the capacity of
faculty adviser, but he has clone an earliest and commei. lalile piece of work. The
position of faculty adviser was formerly held hy Chaplain XY. S. Thomas.
The purpose of the "Y" is to promote an atmosphere of Christianity and
good fellowship in the cadet corps and to act as an aid to moral and character
development. lt is perhaps the most historic group at Staunton, for it was lmegun
hy Captain VV1n, ll. Kable, the founder of S. M. A., who was a charter member
of the Y. M. C, A. of the l'niversity of Yirginiafthe lirst student HY" in the

The Dance Orchestra
On an October afternoon of this school year the Staunton Sentinels, our
present jazz band, was born. From practically nothing, "Stumpyl' Lewis has
shaped an excellent organization. The group has become quite popular in this
section of the Yalley. They got their tirst chance to prove themselves at a faculty
dance of the Y, S. ll. ll. Then at successive dances their uninterrupted march to
fame was aided by the cadet corps. The members of the Staunton Sentinels are:
Leader, "Steve" "Stumpy" Lewis, lst saxophone, Robert llowmang 2nd saxo-
phone, Frank Mardis, 3rd saxophone, Milton Franklin, lst trumpet, Howard
Strohlg 2nd trumpet, Nathaniel Hillg trombone, Robert Randeckerg drums, .lohn
Gilbert, piano. XX'illiam lfrimlg bass, Robert Sencer.
Steve l.ewis has been in the held of music for a long time. He started play-
ing drums for a local Akron band. Later he moved to the Paciiic Coast where
he decided his ambition was to lead a dance band. Finally, his ambition has been
realized. He now leads the up-and-coming group with all the grace of a polished
conductor, and has helped to create a band that S. M. A. can be proud of.
Our hrst sax, Hllolf' Bowman, graduated from the lfrie Conservatory of
Music after spending' six years preparing for his musical career. He has led and
played in local Erie bands.
Frank Mardis is another veteran musician. He has played his tenor sax in
.lohnstown bands for a number of years.
NYilliam Friml is an accomplished musician. Son of the great composer,
Rudolph Friml, bl r., he has all his father's talents. He has written some compo-
sitions and makes some very excellent arrangements.
Our trombonist, Robert I.. Randecker, is another veteran, having' played in
his home town bands before joining our F-. ll. A. orchestra.
The trumpet soloist is Howard Strohl. Being an old timer, he knows all the
tricks of the trade and is quite an asset to any orchestra. He played First trumpet
in last yearls orchestra and proved to be the foundation of the orchestra.
llhen .lune first rolls around and this orchestra splits up, its representatives
will be spread out over various states, but the patrons from Saunton will long
remember this great work in reviving the S. M. A. dance orchestra from the
ashes of the once famous orifanization.
La Sociedad Panamericana
Here we have the newest and most exclusive of the many societies which
the -XCZ1ClCIlly ohfers us. T.Zl Sociedad T,E11lZ!11lL'l'lCZl11E1, otherwise known as the
Spanish Club, is the lirst such club established here in a great number of years.
The exclusiveness of the organization comes in due to the fact that the chief
requirement of the club is that each member must speak Spanishg a feat which in
a school like this, is limited to a small group of boys.
This club is noted for being rather internationally represented. lt has
members from Puerto Rico, Cuba, South ,xx1UCl'lCZl, and even the far-off Philippine
Islands. lleing conducted just like any other modern organization it naturally
has its oilicers, who are as follows: Clyde Childress, who is well known in
Academy circles, leads the list as presidentg for vice-president we have a young
man who hails from the other side of the globefthe Philippine Islands-, Richard
Baldwing the secretary is a native of Puerto Rico, 'lose Fasg and strange as it may
seem, we actually have a good old New Yorker for Treasurer, Robert Kallish.
Last, but not least, there is a man to whom we owe much for the success of this
club, Captain Collins, whom we are glad to have as our faculty adviser.
The Camera Club
In Kable llall they call us Hbugsw. Ahal But clonlt let anybody fool you.
They base their erroneous opinions on our pictures which they criticize with
untrained eye and free tongue, and on the queer shouts, singing, crashing, and
miscellaneous language that emanates from the walls of our spacious darkroom
in the wee, small hours of the morning. The common herd just doesn't understand
us a1'!isz'seit must be the price of fame Q ?j, though.
When we work so industriously after taps, don't he surprised to hear one
of the rabble yell. l'Shet the hf- up in thereg we're trying to grab off a little
Then, too, when we make photographs from peculiar angles, turn them up-
side down, and call them something queer like 'lTlhe l'hysicist's Nightmarel' and
the like, not infrequently we notice the uninitiated casting sad, sidelong glances
at one another, shaking their heads, and whispering, "They should all be across
the tracks with Uthe Judge", 'lQueen Elizabethu, and the rest of the --- "hugs."

A powerful squadron, which seemed due to soar high, was whipped into early season
shape by Coach Howie. As the season progressed, they seemed to fall by the wayside. The
year on the whole was rather a "Jonah" for the football team.
S. M. A. 19fVV. S: L. FROSH 19
The Blue and Gold warriors opened the 1936 football season against the VVashington and
Lee Generals. In this game it hrst became apparent that something was against the strong
home eleven, VV. S: L. started the ball rolling early in the second quarter, and became a
"see saw" affair, with S. M, A. getting the final touchdown in the closing minutes, failing
to convert, and tieing the score.
S. 31. A. 6-MERCERSISVRG 22
The warriors took their first defeat at the hands of the powerful Mercersburg eleven
at Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. The Blue and Gold seemed to lack co-ordination and timing,
and this, together with several bad "breaks", resulted in rather a listless game. On the other
hand Mercersburg played excllent football, working like a machine with perfect timing.
Staunton's lone touchdown came in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter.
S. M. .-X. 6--CATHOLIC VNIYERSITY FROSH 12
This was a hard game for the home eleven to lose. Holding the 'AFrosh" the first half
of the game and scoring early in the second,the team seemed to suffer a let-down. C, U.
made a touchdown in six plays from the kickoff. Shortly thereafter the Blue and Gold were
set on their heels again by the interception of a pass in had territory. The "yearlings"
quickly converted the "break" into another touchdown. The game ended with the S. Rl. A
warriors striving hard for another touchdown.
S. M. A. 6-MASSAN LfTTl-ZN 27
The Fates seemed to be dead against Staunton on this day. They could do nothing.
Massanutten took advantage of their "breaks" and played a smooth aggressive game. The
Blue and Gold's lone touchdown came on Matuza's beautiful catch from a pass made
S. Rf. A. 33-FISHBURNIC 6
S. M. QX, showed Fine form and lreautiful timing in this decisive xiclory. The teain

Scoring in each period except the hrst, S. Nl. ,X.'s gridders decisively defeated lit-Yitt.
Defensively, the team acted like a stone wall, stopping lfones, a triple-threat fullhack,
continuously. lJeYitt gleaned hut four first downs and gained only forty-eght yards. On
its offensive drives, the Blue and Hold hehaved like clockwork. Kleenehan, stalwart center,
was the hulwark of the defense. Laux, Schupska, and McNair were outstanding on the
S. Rf. .'X. tl--NAYY PI-lil3liS 46
The 'AXYarriors" lost this game hecause of a well-develtwped case of the ",litters". The
reputation of the strength of the Navy lads allowed them to run over the goal-line six
times in the tirst half. Navy used three teams in the tirst half hut S. KI. qX. could not hold
them. ln the second half the Blue and Gold stopped Navy's first team cold except for a lone
score late in the fourth quarter. Stauntonls comeback turned a washout into the well-known
S.N..X.13 A. M, N13
This game, played with. the school's oldest rival, was enacted hefore the largest crowd
of the season. .-X. KI. A., strongly favored, and having one of the strongest teams in its
history, was all hut outclassed in this fray. The game was very close throughout, with
first one side scoring and then the other. Both teams were penalized often for "off-side,"
which showed their eagerness for tight. .X penalty of this kind nullified one of S. KI. .Xfs
touchdowns and several long gains. Laux, Shaw, and McNair were outstanding for the
Blue and Gold, while the whole team looked like stars.
5. M. A. Gvlr. U. M. A. 26
The team, weakened by injuries and suhstitutions, played hard to stop the powerful
Fork Union Rlilitary Academy eleven. The invaders marked up two touchdowns in the
first quarter, one in the third and one in the fourth. S. Xl. .X. scored early in the second
quarter on a pass from Ruth to Xlatuza.

season which was climaxed by winning the South Atlantic Prep School boxing
tournament forthe ninth time in ten years, with four champions: Heal, .Xndersen,

The best match of the season occurred when Staunton defeated its traditional

came as a surprise to a majority of persons, for .X. M, .X. was the favorite.
Of course, the credit for their excellent record goes entirely to one manf'

After a slump of several years, baseball once again has regained its position
as one of the most popular varsity sports on The Hill. The reason for this rapid
comeback of the national pastime was due to a winning club. When Coach
lfowie greeted the squad for the initial practice early this spring, he found an
ample supply of capable material and soon moulded this into one of the best
teams he has had in several seasons.
The majority of this year's varsity nine is composed of new men. However,
Kehs, Purlcitt and llrafford were members of last yearls team. The boys got off
to a llying start when they trounced Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn, N. Y., by
a score of 10-4. Spuhler, who has been the main-stay of the pitching staff all
season, turned in a beautiful performance in this game. A scheduled game the
following week with Harvard Freshmen was rained out. At the time of this
writing the team has six remaining contests, two of which are with Augusta
Military Academy, M. Afs traditional rival.
The Blue and Gold nine to date have won seven out of eight games played,
dropping a close 5 to 4 contest with Massanutten. Sehaper, who turned in a very
creditable performance in this game, was given poor support by his teamfmates
who made live errors' allowing' the opponents three unearned runs.
Coach Hovviels infield combination of johnson, lst baseg Ruth, Znd baseg
McNair, short-stopg and Laux on 3rd base would make any prep school coach
sit up and take notice. The regular outfield of llrafford, Conver, and Kehs is on
a par with any to be found in the State Prep League. The stellar performance of
co-captain Purkitt behind the plate has been excellentg his steady receiving and
throwing have been a feature of the team's play. Not enough can be said regard-
ing the pitching of "Hap" Spuhler, who will long be remembered for his many
remarkable performances. McNair, one of the best shortstops to ever don a lilue
and Gold uniform, was easily the outstanding player of the team. His batting
average of well over 400 speaks for itself. Laux held down the hot corner of
the team with perfection and drew much praise for his work. At this writing
Laux is leading the club's hitting with an average of 435. Cogcaptain Ilrafford,
batting in the clean-up position, has a knack of breaking up ball gamesg he also
fields with the best of them. Conver, Kehs, Brackman, and Johnson all have
shown up brilliantly in their respective positions.

. .- N Q
The tennis team under the coaching of Captain lliscoe and Captain Shill has
had a very successful season. XYith .'Xnrand, a veteran of three seasons: Trcmlmle,
a memlmer of last yearls team, whose game has improved consideralnlyg and numer-
ous new cadets, a well-rounded team was formed. Aurand was captain of the
team which was composed of Tremlmle, Fairlmairn, Yoslaurg, XX'arwiclc. Sterling,
The season opened poorly with a defeat at the hands of a highly superior
team from Peddie School. The final result of this match was 5-O. Playing' next
against a local foe, the team came through to defeat Fork Union 5-Z. Another
defeat was handed the Staunton clulx by the Virginia Freshmen with the hnal
score of 7-0. The next week the S. M. A. team came lmaclt to severely trounce her
old rival, lXf1assanutten, 7-U.
Tennis Team I936-I937
S-ince the material on page 178 has gone to press, we find that the 1937 tennis
lads have annexed the State Championship title. This was accomplishd when the
5. M. A. racquetmen defeated Fishburne Military School by a score of 6 to 1,
after Fork Union, Massanutten and Hargrave already had suffered defeat at
the hands of our tennis boys.
Although Aurand fcaptainj will not be back next year, there is every reason
to believe that next year's team will have a most successful season, as four of the
Varsity players expect to return. Those cadets who plan to return to The Hill
next year to engage in tennis are: Fairbairn, Tremble, Vosburgh, Wa1'wick, and
Up to the present time, tennis has been regarded as a minor sport at S. M. A.
Even though it is considered as a minor sport this year's team displayed unusual
dexterity in dealing with their opponents.

Swimming Team IQ36-I937
After a bad start, the swimming team was whipped into shape by Captain
Norton, who came to Staunton at the beginning of the second semester.
Peter Fick was the top ranlcer for points, with Schaper running him Q1
close second. Gilbert, Messier and Tappen shared equal honors for their work
on the team. Schaperfwho tied the world Tnterscholastic lOO-yard free-style
recordf, took first place at the 1937 Nationals. ,Ficlqfholder of the worldls
record for the lUO-meter free-style-, broke many pool records this year, and
piled up many points for the natators.
The relay team went to the Nationals which were held in Philadelphia, but
failed to take a tirst place in this event. The team consisted of Schaper, Messer,
Gilbert and Tappen. The relay team was considered one of the best in the
The team as a whole was very good, and won many meets that the corps
thought it could never win.

Soccer returned to S. M. A. this year after a long absence. The team
deserves a world of praise for achieving an undefeated record in its first start,
and forthe spirit and cooperation of its members.
Able coaching on the part of Captain Maurice M. Collins was the strongest
reason for an unblemished season, and our hats are off to Captain Collins for his
tireless and patient work in molding a team of veterans from a group of inexperi-
The success of the 1936-1937 soccer team will without a doubt firmly estab-
lish this sport on the list of school extra-curricular activities. Members of this
yearls team include: Lewis, N. fCapt.j, Cartagena fManagerj, Ball, S., Brad-
street, Crothers, Diaz, Fernau, Fletcher, Marcantonio, Perrine, R., Richardson,
XV. A., Rose, Suarez and Lesburg.

I35-lb Football Team
lt was late in the football season when the 135-lh. team got its start. The
only victory of our small schedule was against Lee High School of Staunton.
Next year we are looking forward to an early start and more victories for
S. M. AX. The football squad showed plenty of tight ancl we are hoping for
the return of many players next year.
Our lirst string quarterbacli was Cadet lfglin. lle macle a notable run of U9
yarcls in the Lee High School game. Cadet Barry captainecl the team through its
games very vvell. Cadets Normand and Kauffman gave excellent support to the
quarterback position. Captain D. T. Lehman coached the team.
V. .- .
For the iirst time in the history of the school, Staunton had a gym team.
Presented to the boys from the first of the year, gym work was well received by
many boys, some taking a hearty interest from the beginning to the end of the
season. Under the able leadership of Robert Orr, the gym team gave several
splendid exhibitions, one on Parents Day consisting of work on the high-bars,
parallel-bars, tumbling, ladders, and pyramids. It is hoped that with its successful
inauguration gymnastics will win a permanent place on the Staunton sport
schedule. The following were especially active in the gym schedule: Orr, fcap-
tain and coachj, Perry, Sencer, Brafford, Funke, Smith, S. H., Trapp, Krug,
llramberry, Summers, and Normand.
The boys of the junior School were active supporters of the gym team, also,
participating in the Parents Day exhibition.

Golf was re-acloptcd at Staunton this spring after an absence of several
Although the boys organized early under the able faculty supervision of
Captain Pence, practice was long in coming because of the very bad pre-spring
weather. There was a very full schedule of matches with neighboring schools,
ancl a few clistant trips added to the successfulness of the season.
It is believed that with this year's team golf will become a permanent aclflition
to the 5. M. A. sport calendar.
Members of thisqyear's team were as follows: Bramberry fcaptainj, Overton,
Kitchens, Sootti VVQC., 'AlohnsOn, VV., Dickmeyer, Gainler, Tappen, Trcmble, and

As is to he expected, the climax to the clance season is reached during Finals,
at which time there is both a formal ancl in informal clance. The school has been
fortunate in securing the services of johnny Hanip, popular orchestra lcafler, for

has proven the most colorful ancl successful of the entire year, ancl it is conhrlent-
