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. -A. E. HOLTSERIAN THE Sl-IRAPNEL A.

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. 26 V THE Sl-IRAPNEL El'JXYARD A. AURJXNTJ, JR.

Bud, quiet and unassuming, is a demon on the tennis court and a perfect gentlemang however, he seems to have an Odd appetite, since he likes his milk flavored with alum. Bud came to us making noises on a drum and continued to beat his way up to a lieutenancy. Not to change the subject, but llud is quite a "lady-killerf' roping' them in one week only to drop them the next. He is changing now though, having been disappointed in love fwe think that is itj, but we can't understand why he is continually down town on leave. Maybe he hopes to fmd a true love in the Arcadia. Bud is a master mind in "book l2i1'1llIlfTH and his all around abilit ' amazes all U zs his followers. Wle fear for the destiny of the band with the absence of this personage and his drums. 27 .., I t l 1 l 1 4 THE Sl-IRAPNEL GTCORGE A.

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. 28 Tl-IE SI-IRAPNEL ' 1 ,IJ 5 .. 1 SCHL,'Yl.lili M, lllSSl2l.l. III.

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." llissell. 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.

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 of love.

This past year Laird has taken things very seriously. He roomed with Mont- gomery and Calvin for a short time, hut decided that atmosphere was disruptive to his amhition and intellect.

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. 48 Tl-IE Sl-IRAPNEL 's 1IAl-L,S.lL.jR. U52l1H1UyH l'lT'l'SRlfRlSIl, PICNNSYLVANTA 1933-l934fP1'ivate Co.

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. Since Sammy has been here he has been active in many things, being one of the most versatile boys in the corps. He arose from a huck private in the rear rank to the exalted position of a lieutenant, which position he held until he went "messing aroundn a brick plant.

Of course he's a 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 to the last man-can thoroughly convince even a 'tDamyankee,' that the Confed- eracy really took the decision in the VVar Between the States. Dan, otherwise known as t'Destiny's Tot," has that will to win which makes a Southerner unbeatable. Faced with academic failure at the beginning, he has by dint of constant effort earned his diploma and deserves far more praise than those who have idled through the year. Lazy? Sure, but hels indomitable, too. "Destiny,s Tot" has one of the shrewdest, most practical brains in the corps, with a clever tongue to match it. This wiliness has served him in good stead many a time.

He has done better at this job than the vast majority of his predecessors, and is largely responsible for the success of this book. Always quiet and reserved, he is slow in choosing friends but those friend- ships are permanent. Behind this solemnity there lies an undreamed-of deviltry, which unfortunately carried him a shade too far. Hence we have the tragic tale Hlironi Lieutenant to Private." The gap thus made in Company HCM cannot be filled. Possessor of an easy-going disposition which is the birthright of all true Southerners, David is neveitheless the type who never relinquishes his purpose until he has obtained his objective.

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. 80 2' ,. .

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. Sl , THE Sl-IRAPNEL W. . XE M NV.

Work is this boy's sustenance with responsibility as his dessert. He takes his duties seriously, working hard while undertaking any task and sticking with the job until it is accomplished. There never was a more home-loving man. He probably holds the school record for calling home. VVe often wonder how he takes those stern talks from the paternal ancestor concerning a shortcoming in English or Trigonometry. We don't want to give the wrong impression about this "Tar Heel," for he does like a good time although the ladies are Utabuf' He exhausts his excess energy in the wide open spaces, frequently visiting the various caves around Staunton. Wie could trust this lad with a ping as a result he has been honored by the corps that realizes his worth by placing him on the Honor Committee. You may be sure this lad will lose no tricks in the future. 82 THE SHRAPNEL Q l N lJUUl.liY ll. TAPPEN HStud,' soiirn ORANGE, Nlzw JI-:ksEY liuxlan l,'11it'M'.rz'fy i 1932-193.3-l'1'ix'ate Co.

Another member of that fast vanishing race, the real, old-fashioned Kable Hall "hell raisers." Stud is the guy we always rely on for excitemnt and a crop of laughs at any time of the day and night. Always prepared to enter into the swing of things, he stands ready to cover the world with cheer. This and his other likeable traits make him a much sought after chap by both the males and females. The faculty enjoy his light-hearted attitude to the point of feeling sorry when they must slap his wrist for being a naughty boy. From what we hear, the girls think he's quite the thing when he parades his Atlas physique on the New ,lersey beaches as a Life Guard. lt's surprising he can stay serious long enough to save a life. Although not the student who we look for at the top of the list of seniors, he always manages to hold his own somehowg this, we're sure, he will always manage to do. 83 QQWNQ THE Sl-IRAPNEL ffofp i NORMAN R.

Although this pride of Staunton doesnlt have many connections with the Academy, as he is a day student, during this one year here he has created many 5 friendships among the cadets by his pleasant personality and gentlemanly manneri ln short Turner represents the typical Southern gentleman.

"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 110 THE Sl-IRAPNEL 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. 111 Richard L.

STRAUGIIN SULLIVAN VVALLS VVARVVICK VVILLIAMS YAIILONSKY G THE SI-IRAPNEL 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 l Z4 THE SI-IRAPNEL 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 itself. 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 existing there. 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. 125 11115111.13 ... HALDXYIN. .. BORDA .......

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. 128 THE SI-IRAPNEL 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 welfare. '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. 129 TI-IE SI-IRAPNEL ARMSTRONG, VI. XY. Cajvfuin FOKAN, XX". li. First Licutenani VVAYNE, N.

VV H I'I'Ic, L. THE SI-IRAPNEL 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. 132 THE SI-IRAPNEL 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. 133 BENARD, M. COLEMAN, tl. . . KICKINNIEY, J.

ROGERS, JAMES T., ZNU STERLING SXYANSTROM VVITTMAAK THE Sl-IRAPNEL 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- toire! 138 THE Sl-IRAPNEL 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 time someone gave you the 'flow downn. We'll be sorry to see a lot of you go, but if you must, you must. Anyway here's- what we are trying to say. We have had a lot of fun and now that we're about to part, we wish you all loads of luck. So long, you Uliuters !"

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. 144 THE SI-IRAPNEL The Woodrow Wilson Literary Society QFl7lClfll5 ifmsr Tialut SICCOXD 'r15RM l3R.Xl,JSTlilil2rl' . . . . .

This caused interest in the Vtioodrow XYilson to lagg it is now fast reviving. 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. ll-3-NEW 145 THE SI-IRAPNEL The Cotillion Club wi I I M " i i i f f- i il 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. 146 THE SI-IRAPNEL 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. 147 ..,,..,...ti.-v.?,,- --f - Q Tl-IE Sl-IRAPNEL 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.

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. N 1:0 THE Sl-IRAPNEL 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. 151 THE Sl-IRAPNEL The Camera Club In Kable llall they call us Hbugsw.

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.

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 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. 174 THE SI-IRAPNEL Baseball i936-I937 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. S. M. A.'S ll.-XSEBALL RECORD TO DATE S. M.

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, and Stevens. 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. 178 THE SI-IRAPNEL 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 Stevens, H. Up to the present time, tennis has been regarded as a minor sport at S. M. A.

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 country. The team as a whole was very good, and won many meets that the corps thought it could never win.

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- enced youngsters. 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.

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. 183 T l-l E Sl-l RA P N E L Golf Team I936-IQ37 Golf was re-acloptcd at Staunton this spring after an absence of several seasons. 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.

These 'Krhythm kingsu have formed an orchestra that S. Bl. A, may well he proucl of. It is prohalmle thiit in later years sons of S. M. A. will point out various leaders in the tiehl of music ancl say "that fellow was a member of the Staunton Sentinels hack in '56-'37f' 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 the Final formal dance. It has always been the case that the formal during Finals has proven the most colorful ancl successful of the entire year, ancl it is conhrlent- ly anticipatecl that this will again prove true. 215 THE SI-IRAPNEL THE SI-IRAPNEL , I-I THE SI-IRAPNEL wh, I- , . l1L....Q THE Sl-IRAPNEL 217 THE SI-IRAPNEL W Il A Aw' E A Il!
