Company Commander Acker was a pleasant little gent with a New York accent and a chest that had siipped slightly. The class will long remember his legal arguments with indoctrination instructors, his cracking cadence as he shouted Hip-Hop-Hup-Ho, his "Seats, gent-I-men, seats," and the time he couldnlt get over the hurdle in the obstacle course in gym. Seriously, Ensign Acker did a mighty Fine iob of maneuvering the boys around and he went to bat for the company many times to try to get longer weekends, Fewer drills, and no overcoats. The class is mighty Fortunate to have had such an oFticer in command. Fourth row: R. Andcrxon, Bunken, E.

GQighD The O.T.C. ponders tactics. . Composed of 33 men whose names, with one exception, begin with A or B, the First Platoon could very appropriately be called AB which according to naval communications means HAII Before." Since that fateful July 1 when strong men quaked and weak men collapsed, ABS have led the company. We have been Hall before" in pay line, security watches, company com- manders, being inspected, being "shot" in the arm, beet- ing and talking in ranks and everything else except marching to chow-which we do only on Monday. AB is the despair of every pla- toon leader. There is but one time of the day when the boys quit talking and start looking sharp and that lasts exactly 20 seconds as we pass the regimental oHice or oHicer.

Buoyant, hopeful, confidentethe Second Platoon was a lively group, and, with 39 men, the largest platoon in the company after indoctrination. With DeReus to lead the singing, Deedler to interrogate the instructors, and Corwin to wisecrack, there was never a dull moment. What other platoon could match the talent of portrait painter Clark or concert pianist Donaldson, the easy con- tident manner in which Everson maneuvered marching men, the nonchalant independence of HAdmiral" Colby, or the promptness of Hdoubleetime" Derman in making Formation? Never- to-be-torgotten are: the strenuous month of indoctrin- ation under the leadership of HNed" Conner; the calling of the roll with Cook, B. T. and Cook, G. A.,- the antics of Cleveland.

There was Attorney Freeman, G-Man Harrington, Newsman Garvey, Merchandiser Harkins, and also a Few old salts like Gorham, Gribetz, Gust, Flynn and Fowle who had been in the Navy before NTS Harvard. Brother Flynn was, in tact, S.O.P.A. ot the regi- ment, the only full lieutenant in the gang, as a result of an alnav which struck during his training here. From California, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, New York, Indiana and Vermont came "the Thun- dering Third" to Form its own quiet little melting pot at Harvard.

While the windslare now howling over the wintry wastes of the Yard, the Regi- mental Office and unsmiling John Harvard's stony visage, it is diFFicult to believe that once the sun beat down unmercitully on the white oHicers' caps of the men of Company Fox-the very unnautical maleScwho trun- dled back and Forth between Holden Chapel and moldy Matthews with blankets, forms and books on that nervous day of July 1. Class 7-43, with its complement of men who con- Fidently had expected assignments to Supply, Ordnance, Aviation and Gunnery schools, arrived to study communications at America's oldest university. Soon we were "boots" being indoc- trinated, shepherded from class to class, drill to movie, Music building to Sick Bay. Here we were, stripped of insignia, bereft of knowledge and full of latent smaH-boy heH which later evidenced itself in a plague of hot-Foots, Saturday nights amid the terrors of Boston and duty afloat at company smokers. Distinctive as a letter of commendation Ohe new Navy merit badgei was the First encounter with rifles. Many a gouged eye was narrowly averted as dainty Simson pi- rouetted and whirled and the platoons bal- anced the weapons either like Indian clubs or massive16-inch guns. Mildewed and sweating under what the natives Iaughingly called the "hottest summer in the history of Cambridge" Company Fox held a competition. Hogs came running from Back Bay and miles around as bull- throated Bill Acker, the hacker, roared UHic, haec, hoc, huc" at unresponsive trees in the Yard to win the contest for company com- mander. Runner-up was anti-heat Jack In- gram iwho later put on a 32-ounce suit of bluesl His bellowing resembled the Cor- sair engine he left behind at Los Alamitos. And every noon hour, as 15 men collapsed from heat and hunger, maestro-adiutant Jim Zea in his best CBS manner, wheeled From left to right and solemnly announced, "Pawk- ages for." John Landgrat got so many pack- ages that his roommates set up a lottery on who was to wear the 20 new uniforms that arrived for him daily. The ensigns and ms of the new company looked around at'themselves and found the inspection good. The men were, by and large, married, and either had children or expected them soon. Despite all Spitball- throwing, changing name tags and other childish pranks, the men appeared to have once been sober and respectable citizens in Podunk, Cincinnati, Alabama and even Kansas. Most of the men who avidly lapped up indoc- trination and communications courses had been business men, educators and accountants. Lawyers were well represented along with architects, scientists, bankers, iournalists and 22 men who came From military service. All night long on July 7 the witches danced with glee and prepared strange alchemies in preparation For the 7-43 men who solemnly Filed over to Sick Bay the follow- ing mom to receive iabs from men with eight- toot needles and unrestrained plunges. The First shots had been administered. Two hours of drill followed. A week later the pharmacist's mates had another boistrous holiday with the boys from Fox, followed by a regimental review, a "well done" From the Skipper, and the regi- mental ball in the evening, minus the group, naturally, which had to stand watch. This was the weekend which started at 1300 on Saturdayamark it well in your memories because miracles occur rarely in Harvard Yard. An entertainment Featur of the Fox month was the First company smoker highlighted by Egyptian Ella, the "commissioning" of Ensign Homer Daniel Jones and the absorption of tons of uiced tea." i50l' . 0 . . 722 git! ZQZCG'MK by Eugene Kone Freshmen we were once and in August we continued as freshmen. Ah, but with a ditterencel Gone was indoctrination and in its place were officer's bars, shoulder boards, liberty until Monday morning and a 1700 to 2000 liberty each evening. Great changes in personnel occurred. No more would Deck instructor Lieut. Close sink a submarine for 7-43. Ensign Jones of Naval Administration Fame clotted his officer's cap in exchange for the more con- ventional overseas cap and marched to the glory of the regiment in Company Easy's fourth platoon. A dozen bright-eyed men answered the call for volunteers and were iumped ahead a company. The tight-lipped, knowing CV nys went back to Washington to win the war in dark and secret chambers of red tape and directives. Then came the rugged men from the Ship of the Desert in Terrible Tucson, bringing with them stories of iQO-degree temperatures and back-break- ing discipline. In August the Company Easy men wondered what they had done with all that free time in July. Even the men who daily clamberecl the ladder to heaven on the Fifth deck of Matthews there clouds Float in through open windows and angels bend down to whispeO were thinking of request- ing an active duty ribbon for action beyond the call of duty. The third round of shots laid the men low, in many instances, Followed two clays later by a captain's inspection and very red ears. Company E climbed to vicarious fame for a night when concert pianist Herb Donaldson played with the Boston Pops orchestra and received a tremendous ovation. The days grew hotter and hotter and the S. 075 ran faster and faster to keep up with the double time demanded by the men with whips in the Regimental OFFice. A special ioy was that class in visual comm after lunch and the pleasant dreams of sea duty on the Charles. The otticer-in-charge answered all the questions the imaginative minds of the men could dream up at a luncheon near the end of the month. Ruddy, lorthright Winston Churchill thrillecl the class in his dramatic surprise visit to Harvard on Monday, September 6. Facing the men lined up row on row in front of Memorial Chapel, the PM solemnly said: "I earnestly trust that when you Find yourself alongside our soldiers and sailors in 1943 and 1944, you will Feel that we are your working brothers in arms." It was during the beautiful late summer days of September that the days of "dutyHA all good cluty-seemecl to be coming nearer. So determined Richard Croop laicl hands on a super-duper short wave radio set and began to get Fox by the ears. The Fact that he was listening to symphonies on the phonograph all this time and studying as well didn't ' bother him the least. Phil Sirrine and Jack Reichart teamed up to help guide the destinies of the NTS Swing Band. A dancing, prancing all-male chorus made its historic debut at the monthly smoker aided by uToots" Gallup, "Rosita Royce" Schaetter with a Harvard-Yard pigeon, and "Ax" Stephens. Weilepp and Patterson nobly assisted the future of mankind and its progeny with a peek into the future of the U. S. A maior casualty took place in the Company Dog ranks when hardy lngram ziggecl instead of zagging in a football game and came up minus one molar. He is to be award- ed a special "Bleeding Heart" medal For iniury sustained in action. It was at this time that Ben Stephens rose to great heights when he tore a grid iSit circuit to shreds in the greatest oratorical masterpiece of ye talk double since Daniel Webster. They are still using a radar on his speech in CruFt Lab to Find out what he did ask Prof. Knipp. October was a month of great blessing -watches were cut to the bone and inter- views were held. Every man emerged from his interview conFiclent that he had gotten exactly what he asked for, making a total of 200 ship's secretaries, 150 ComAir men, 100 DE boys and an amphib. Arthur "the wolf" Bornfriend embarked upon the sea of matri- mony and the greatest water Fight since Jutland rocked North Matthews. One hundred men Floated through water up to the elbows following the last great October smoker. This was the smoker that made Jacko Reichart, the kid from Muncie, famous for his reservoir of tales ab0ut the Navy and land duty afloat,- the Fourth platoon conducted interviews, Cominch was told to get off the line and the fearless Filth had an inspection that gave the regimental oFlice pause. By November we knew who the DE, Amphib and PT boys were as well as those bereft souls who left our midst so suddenly and unexpectedly For other duty. Things began to iell, the unrelated became coherent and Julian Kelly even started to make formations on time. The Navy Day review was rainecl out. Evenings became chilly; Fifth-hand over- coats Hworn once" were snapped up at premium prices and men were casting about For apartments ashore. Now that we are entering Company Able our future is mapped out For us, to be controlled by the fortunes of war, the tempera- ment oF ship captains and good old BuPers. We can Flex our muscles in a somewhat relaxed manner at future strength tests,- the ComAir boys will depart in a Few weeks For Quonset and the last Harvard bill For lamb, Fish and double-bunk beds is about to be paid. The ground is hard now and the mornings Frost. Now we can wear those new overcoatsl Bright spots of memory remain after all the quizzes, restrictions, mimeographed announcements and forms have been Forgotten. Even the maneuvering board pales into insignificance. Random impressions: Morning colors. The pale rays of a newly risen sun slant in sharp streaks through the trees near Welcl. Lined up in serriecl rows are men in khaki, later in blues and then raincoats, their shining Faces reflecting the glory of the Navy with lines appearing on faces here and there as a result of constant night toil over CI. The company commander lumbers OFF in digniFiecl Ackerian stride to make his report. John Parr, bullet-shapecl and half asleep, shoots across the Yard like a frightened duck to make Formation. Then the company stands at attention and snaps to hand salute. A horrible scratching renders the morning silence, like a classroom snore that has been bloken OFF suddenly. Suddenly a bugle sounds, then another and another, bombarding the air from all sides. First it plays "Boots and Saddles," then uSick Call," then "Fire" and Finally uColors." Two notes race ahead of the melody, running like hell to outclistance it and succeeding famously. "Ready, Two.In Finds the officers in a state of complete nervous exhaustion waiting For the planes to bombarcl the Yard. The two air raicls: stumbling forth into darkness in paiamas, khakis, sweaters and yawns.

Bob Leaven- worth ate it up. The others held hands. Interviews: the nervous pacing up and down, the greeting hurled at each trembling cancliclate, the corny iokes, the ship's secre- taries who became confused and asked For Amphib, the nervous reply to questions. The hash, re-hash, counter dissection and cross- analysis of what he said and l saicl and they asked For that went on For weeks afterward.

The antelope sprint of the Company 9-43 commander byes, he has it over his door, tooy from formation to report to Lt. th Hansen. All of these passing impressions are tied together by the knot of friendships we have made and information which has been absorbed. It has probably been one of the brightest chapters in what is to be our Navy career. Now we are ready for duty afloat or at Foreign bases, and to all our shipmates- bon voyage and speed the victory!

Naval Reserve. We at "Hahvahd" never quite got used to being bugled out of bed and shadow boxing with the idea of being student oFFicers at that hostile hour. We did Finally learn the harcl way that a student officer is a curious mixture of ex-civilian, boy scout and collegianea sort of stepchild of naval blue blooclabut we never got used to it. The guy who invented reveille never realized what perplexing early-morning intro- spection his simple ditty was to provoke at Harvard. Ostensibly, the piece was meant simply to hie us From the sack, but being col- lege graduates and also gentlemen by various acts of Congress, we naturally had to think about it a little. Having come Fresh From civilian life and its multitudinous soft pleasantries, we were often disturbed by our thoughts. The complexities of student oFFicership when con- templated suddenly each morning disturbed almost everyone, especially if he did his con- templating in a state of grogginess as he grabbed blinclly for his instruments of ablution and padded off to the head. Here,s hoping the guy who invented reveille is satisFiecl. His handiwork will long bear manifold significance to clear olcl 7-43. After a shower, provided we hit the deck early enough to take one, and after the teeth-brushing and mandatory shave, we Felt a little more cheerful about the situation and in a mood For chow. Perhaps the least said about morning chow the better. Sultice it to say, boiled-egg clay ottered the most variety. There were hard-boilecl eggs, sott- boiled eggs, most-soft-boilecl eggs, and most- solt-hush-hush-or-they'll-break-out-and-run-OH the - plate - all - over - your - blue - serge boiled eggs.

Egad, who brought that up? By and large you Felt pretty good right up until you got that quiz paper back with the 2.2 colclly slashed across a top corner. Then you asked yourself, Uwhatinhell am l doing here?" and mumbled clown your bib to the etlect that ul probably wasnlt cut out For the Navy, anyhow." This Feeling of Frustration persisted as you tried to ascertain what in the name of Hector relative speecl actually was, and why its ratio to 60 was equal to that of time to distance, and why any dumb tool would want to use a maneuvering board to avoid colliding with anything so prodigious as a battle wagon. Was the ioker blind, or something? Next thing you knew some pedagog was telling you radio was really very simple, that all you had to do was understand coils, resistors, diodes, duo-cliocles, coupling con- densers, by-pass condensers, butter doublers, t54t intermediate Frequency, that E equalled l times R and why young Joe Current had to get back to his Cathode.

Hell, this Navy stutt wasn't so tough. l-lacln,t that instructor challenged you to Flunk the course? Hadnlt that other one said, ul know, Fellows, it sounds like a 'Rube Goldberg' but it's really simple as hell." Morning dronecl on. The eFFects of that 3.8 shot in the arm started to wear OFF. Your belly started to cry out in hunger. You wondered, with misgivings, what delightful surprise the "Hahavahd" cookies had rustlecl up this time-Oh Gawdl this was Weclnes- day, mackerel clay. You really would be in the grease. Oh well, perhaps thereld be a letter awaiting you in your billet. Finally, came that inimitable "se-cuah" and the list- less, tirecl march back to the yard.

A Fable by There once was, upon a certain time, a very gay young man, yclept Adams, who was of that happy, carefree breed of men . now near extinction and quite without distinction . . . the lowly civilian. And, as such, our friend Adams led a most enviable existence pursuing a singularly unregimented life Five days a week and tending, of a week- end, his much-admirecl Victory Garden that was indeed the most pretentious in all of North Eden, Kan., from whence he hailed. But, as it must to all men, Fit or not, the chill winds of the draft began to descend upon the yet-unblightecl Adams. A group of his friends and neighbors began to speculate on his worthiness as North Eden's representa- tive in the armed forces, and friend Adams' distress was exceeding great. For he was not a member of the grim belligerentsia that vowed loucl vengeance in public places, turning his orange bitters into gall-and-worm- wood whilst his pacifistic predilections cow- ered under their militant hobsnobbery. Yet Adams was no coward. He was iust one of those rare characters that will one day inherit the earth when indeed the prophets scuttlebutt destroys the modern lie. And For this unlorgivable frailty he was looked upon as a rather odd webloot, es- pecially since it was common knowledge that he had once sprained an ankle rather than exterminate one of God's insect crea- tures underfoot. Hence, friend Adams, misgivings at the too-immediate prospect of reputedly carnal violence. Primarily, you see, he was apprehensive about his unpredictable be- havior uncler Fire, tearful lest ignominious exile be his lot lorevermore . . . if and when he somehow didn't take Hill X or perhaps couldn't get the message through or maybe washed out of advanced pilot training. John Vlahos How, then, would he Face the man who believed in him all along-Maior Pat OlBrien? Or Greer Garson, the woman he lovecl ancl someday hoped to marry? He stopped dead in Front of Woolu worth's, arms akimbo, Fists clenched. No! he muttered, through gritted teeth, his eyes cold and steely like a bayonet. He, Adams, the Fearless One, Adams the Avenger, must enlist, must tread in the military bootsteps of his family lorbearsl At once and at any risk, volunteer! Now a strange, wistful calm settlecl over him. The grim purposefulness of his aspect vanished momentarily and there Flick- ered, For an instant, an ever-so-Fleeting, wry and Cary Grantlike, ie-ne-sais-quoi sort of smile. He glanced about sharply . . . so sharply indeed that it gave his neck a painful crick. Aclams snapped his Fingers as he winced involuntarily. What is pain? he musecl in his most detached manner, trying the while to resist an overwhelming impulse to go home and lie down. Then it was that he saw the Message. Enlist in the Waves, it said. Release a man to Fight at seal How glorious.I claydreamecl Adams, his 20-80 vision blurring, as was its wont, while the sign seemed now to say: Enlist in the Waves. Release an Adams to Fight at sea!

Now this same Applebaum, being one of the Procure- ment Kids, was a dyspeptic it not a somewhat cadaverous gent who lived For but two things: the day of his First Al Nav, when he could clis- pose, once and for all, of his annoyingly redundant monicker; and, to PROCURE, PROCURE, PROCURE . . . by any means 1581" . . . by all means . . . and by means fair or Foul. This day he was concerned mostly with his occupational obsession For the old gleam shone wildly in his eyes as he made the shanghai gesture to Friencl Adams who backed away apprehensively into the arms of a Pharmacist's Mate iwho iust happened to be there, ands who tried him out For size. Then, with Fiendish grins, they Gor a Yeoman had also appeared, with a typewriter and some application blanksy converged upon the trembling Adams who realized, with shocked disbelief, that he was about to become a man without a draft card. Twenty minutes later, as he tried on a pair of khakis iguaranteed not to shrink or Fade, $12.93 and wrote the uniform people a three hundred clollar check Gor which he was to be reimbursed, oi course-to the dissonant tune of one hundred and Fifty dollars, in installments yeD, he wonclerecl, uncom- prehendingly, how it happened that these strange blue-iacketed agents of BNOP iwhat- ever that wasy were so suddenly and so lustily slapping him, Adams, on the back with happy huzzahs of "Well, youlre in the Navy now!" He cringecl and shied away from them, muttering to himself. Okay! All right! So he was in the Navy now! So why didn't they please get off his back and let him live.l Yet, he had to admit, as he vainly reiiected on his reflection in the mirror, that he did cut rather a dashing iigure in his uni- iorm. And besides, wasn,t it the Navyls policy to place men in iobs allied to their civilian pursuits? But of course! Thus it came about that our gay and good Friend AdamStlormerly North Eden's foremost veterinarian-was plucked. For what duty? Communications, of course! Where sent? To Harvard, naturally, to that melting pot For malcontents.I Harvard was quite a revelation to poor Adams who expected something Ox- onian and found instead that it was actually not much more than Kansas State Teachers College during the rainy season. There he was billetecl in a Fine old typically New England and typically termite-ridden structure that must have appalled even the Colonial Troops that were once incarcerated therein. Still, he was not too unhappy within the hallowed and harrowing portals oi Matthews. Living as he did, on the Fifth cleck GlooO he was relatively immune to the prying unaccountability checks of the Watch Boys who, when recking the dizzying climb, would sacriFice security and reliability for speed. in the classroom, Adams was clis- tinguished by his l-must-to-beclclie-bye manner, which was discarded abruptly at the sounding of uSecure.In and resumed without stint at the very First mention of Seats!" Suiiice it to say: he was of that nameless minority that failed to achieve that coveted recognition- The Mark of Merit. Never would he wear its ribbon of academic distinction-a gouged eyeball on a Field of rampant red. On weekends, however, Friend Adams scintillated. He was at once the Toast of Scollay Square and the Pride of McBride's, squiring always, hither and yon, his one true loveaLittauer Lou, a lovesome wench from way back. Class of 1-42, to be exact. His strength test score is best forgot- ten, for, to Adams, the push-up was a varia- tion of the push-over. Indeed, it is said he drove eleven oi the 15 Chiefs to Chelsea where, reputedly, they Finished out their days vainly attempting, to their very last West Point breather, 8943 squat-thrusts in a straitiacket. Shortly thereafter, Adams received his orders this roommate's third choicey and went to Amphib where he coulclnit harm anyone- except the Army maybe. At last report, he was in Kiska, which perhaps explains the Jap's sudden evacuation of the premises. He writes, in a letter to Lt. qu Bicle Crabley: "From where I'm standing, this is far from Paradise. Which is okay by me, see! it's all good duty, see! But, believe me, a Harvard hotioot would sure be welcome!" t591' 74602 god As we complete our days as student olticers under instruction and prepare to take our places as communications otticers aboard the Fighting ships of the Navy, we pause to reFlect on the several brief months spent here at NTS, Harvard. We have hacl tun. We have made many Friends whose activities on the seven seas we shall follow with interest. Although we often chaled and com- plained, we will look back upon this period of our lives with toncl memoryt We have learned. Little do we realize how much we have learned or how often we will draw upon the knowledge absorbed here. Our situation might be compared to that described by Thomas Paine at the time of the American Revolution: uWe have crowded the business of an age into the compass of a few monthsl and have been driven through such a rapid succession of things, that For the want of leisure to think, we unavoidably wasted knowledge as we came, and have left nearly as much behind us as we brought with us: but the road is yet rich with the fragments, and, before we fully lose sight of them, will repay us For the trouble of stopping to pick them up."
