The significance of moving to the permanent Academy site; the year ' s training we received here; the graduation itself, climaxing years of effort on the part of innumerable people both in uniform and out, which gave the USAF its first group of officers trained and educated totally within the modem concept of Air Power; these are only a few of the items that can be cited as por- tending great things for the Air Force in the future. With this in mind, we feel it only just that the 1959 POLARIS be dedicated to all the people who make up the greatest service in the world— The United States Air Force. The Class of 1959 15 16 :MtiS !fl»S «fi X ' f ' i ' ? The 1959 Polaris chronicles the events of a period of great achievement and activity for the Cadet Wing and the Air Force Academy. We moved from Lowry Air Force Base to our new permanent site, the Academy was granted accreditation as a fully- recognized educational institution, and members of the pioneer Class of 1959 graduated and began their careers in the service. None of us will soon forget our football team ' s undefeated record and outstanding performance in the Cotton Bowl. To you, the Class of 1959, best wishes and Godspeed as you meet the challenges of the future. Your success as Air Force officers will be the measure of our accomplishment. JAMES E.

The Freshmen got a smile; the Second Class received their rings; the Third Class got to march and the First Class got ready to GO. Awards were given; honors announced; Brides- to-be got ready— and we all marched— like we say, it was hectic. « iS Jk liihiiiiilhi Socially we were lions during June Week.

At Norfolk, Virginia, we spent a day on the FoiTestal class Carrier " Ranger, " toured the Navy ' s newest missile carriers, their destioyers, and even became submarine " observers " — fully qualified for the submarine races. We fully appreciated the Navy ' s floating barracks, and took full advantage of such facilities as the Officers Club and nearby Virginia Beach. From Norfolk we flew to Fort Benning, Georgia, where we were introduced to Jump Training and Ranger School, as well as the overall Army setup. We learned to answer that snappy " Follow me " with a snappier " After you " — meanwhile gazing longingly at the sky. It was rewarding to see how the other half lives. I Rub-A-Dub-Dub .

Our trips weren ' t all business. k At Oklahoma Air Material Area we found our- selves in the workshop of the Air Force. Here, behind the glamour of the flight line, we felt the pulse that nourishes the combat unit, gaining an appreciation of these unsung heroes and their mission. 1 u C o m t m a 66 We met new people . . , - And saw new things.

Fort Benning, Georgia, hosted a few of our hardier souls for a three-week jump course. From the tales they told on return, it ' s nice they keep this (HI a voluntary basis.

We found out operation 3rd Lt. was his idea. Of course others, such as Major Trinor, helped him bring the idea into reality, and we have them to thank for a serious glimpse of the Air Force and its men in action. Some of us were wondering just where we were going; most of us now have a much better picture of our future. We saw the complicated procedure of getting an aircraft into the air. After seeing the team effort required within each unit we have a much better under- standing and appreciation for discipline in aU its forms. Perhaps one of the most impressive lessons was the roll of the master sergeant. We are looking forward to working with men like we met on 3rd Lieutenant. ■MU. a into Mstol emost ; But now ifs our graduation. 95 We were anxious to go. lu :-T r • ' !f j. r -, ' ■m.

No special treatment— I think? 101 1961 Support Commands m The Army, Navy, and Support Commands field trip of 1959 was designed to give the cadets of the third class an opportunity to reinforce classroom studies by actual contact with the other Armed Forces and with the major Air Commands which perform the support function in the Air Force. First stop on the trip, which covered most of the eastern half of the country, was Pensacola Naval Air Station, Florida. Here cadets were briefed on the de- fense tasks of the Navy, particularly in the flying and submarine fields. Highlight of the stay with the Navy was the twenty-four hours spent aboard the Antietam as it cruised in the Gulf. Next the cadets flew to Fort Banning, Georgia, for familiarization with the missions, methods, and roles of the modem day Army. The days with the Army were spent watching demonstrations of the tactics which it intends to employ to take full advantage of the latest developments in weapons and to minimize the perils of nuclear warfare. These tactics include the use of air- borne troops. Cadets were given an opportunity to participate in various phases of jump training during their last day at Benning. The next flight took the cadets to Ohio and back into the realm of the Air Force with a several days stay at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The agenda showed the many phases of the Air Research and De- velopment Command ' s work, including reports on the projects which will iiffect the Air Force for many years to come. The last step in their journey brought the cadets to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Tinker Air Force Base, home of the Oklahoma Air Materiel Area. Here they were shown the function of the Air Materiel Command in supplying the Combat Commands with the materiel, parts, and maintenance necessary to fulfill their mission of keeping the peace.

" This expression, although trite, most completely sums up the Field Trip of the class of ' 62. The trip included visits at George AFB, Edwards AFB, March AFB, Vandenburg AFB, and Hamilton AFB. At George, cadets were shown the mission of the Tactical Air Command. The principles of interdiction, close air support, tactical reconnaissance, and a mobile strike force were explained as well as demonstrated in a fire power demon- stration which included the entire inventory of TAG aircraft. At Edwards and Vandenburg, cadets were introduced to the future. Some of the newest equipment in the Air Force was seen, including the X-15. March AFB initiated the class of ' 62 to the Strategic Air Command. Restrictions were lifted and the cadets were given an insight into the mission of SAC which many regular officers have never received. The problems involved with strategic bombardment and missiles were fully revealed. Hamilton AFB concluded the two week trip. All-weather fighter interception and interceptor missile strategy were integrated with our previous knowledge to give the class of ' 62 a more complete picture of the combat commands and their functions. s Ill There ' s the shoes; where ' s . 112 Mixmaster deluxe. look ma! no pilot. riiaj Of course, you both know the rules .

I w ' W ' V jT k g|||||j«ll|, I Herbert Arnold Adamson " Herb " Brigham City, Utah Senatorial Affectionately known as " Herb, " to those who knew him formally, this friend of the cadets was responsible for many happy hours on the ramp; yet, he never served a tour. He was the first cadet to beat a Class HI Board. He was turned out two hours before he became Wing Commander. He was the first chairman of the Honor Representatives and was Wing Com- mander on the final make list. He was on five intramural championship teams and won two individual Judo championships. Herb leaves the academy with hopes of having fun and being successful in the Air Force. Howard Thomas Akers " Tom " Los Angeles, California From the land of sunshine and oranges (and smog) to the wind-swept " Venturi Valley " of the Rockies came this peaceful and carefree lad. But four years of cadet life strengthened and matured him for his Air Force career. Academics never ruffle some people and his custom of never studying for finals seems to prove he was one of them. His one big down- fall proved to be falling in love with a girl half- way across the country, thus plunging himself into many a frustrating weekend. Equal de- votion to his country will certainly insure his success in the Air Force. David Dean Anderson " D. D. " Senatorial Saint Johns, Michigan Congressional Leaving a dairy farm in Michigan, " D. D " came to the Academy with a complete lack of knowledge of mihtary life. He had little trouble falling into the routine of Academy life, how- ever, due to his abiUty to get along with people and his good sense of humor. A good room- mate, always ready to have fun or crack a joke, " D. D " has been a fine classmate. Always a lady ' s man, " D. D. " finally settled down to a CWC girl. His willingness to tackle any job and abihty to accomplish any job given him will carry him far in the Air Force. Thomas I. Anderson " T.L " Montgomery, Alabama Presidential Another Air Force brat, T.L can call many parts of the world as home. T.L is known for his " gift of gab. " Describing himself as a thinker, not a scientist, T.I. has refused to be- come involved in science courses here. T.L can usuaUy contribute a great deal to a social gathering with his wdt and conversation. T.L ' s soccer playing demonstrates his athletic abihty. T.L ' s inquisitive mind and his abihty to express himself should carry him a long way in the Air Force. 116 David Thomas Archino " Maverick " Selbyville, Delaware Congressional Pagliacci with a brain. Under the deceivingly wide and ever present grin is one of the sharp- est wits that ever befuddled a curve. Eager, ambitious, quickwitted, and sharp - tongued Dave probably has more friends than any other man at the Academy. It ' s certain that he has no enemies. With all things in his favor Dave hopes to, and we are certain that he vdll, go far in the service of his country. It is equally certain that no one will soon forget the antics and wisecracks that brought smiles to plenty of long faces during the hard winter months. Roger Conrad Axlund " Whitey " Sioux Falls, South Dakota Congressional The reticent type at first. Ax developed throughout his career in many facets. He proved always to have a ready anile. In base- ball he demonstrated his versatihty by playing almost every postion. The " Supe ' s " List was an indication of his academic prowess and, like all he achieved, was the result of conscien- tious work. In the future a job well-done can always be counted on from the golden-haired Swede. Robert Keith Barnard " Bob " Seaside, Oregon Congressional Bob left Oregon for Aviation Cadet training in Texas to discover after only eleven weeks that he was to continue his training at the new Academy in Colorado. Although not a natural in acaaemics he immediately accepted the change as a necessary part of the background required for an officer career in the Air Force. Bob ' s love for travel and adventure place him in good stead for a future in the age of space travel. Ules Lee Barnwell, Jr. " Barney " Greenville, South Carolina Congressional Beginning with one year at Fumeau Uni- versity, Lee continued his final years of col- lege at AFA. Although not an academic whiz, he nevertheless stayed comfortably proficient, although plagued with Class Ill ' s, particularly the final 3 months of his cadet career. James Oliver Bartholomew " Bort " Burlington, Iowa Congressional Coming from Iowa, and possessing the good nature common to the Mid-Westemer, Bart ' s quick smile and easy optimism enabled him to take anything the system had to offer. Not overly concerned with academics, Bart was more at home leading on the fields of friendly strife or reigning as president of the sack squad, and his superior grasp of mathematics was used on the card table more than in any academic problem. Because of his ability and dependa- bility, Bart will be a valuable addition to the Air Force corps of officers. Robert Duane Beckel " Bucks " Walla Walla, Washington Senatorial Thanks to the happy combination of a good sense of humor, great athletic abihty, and the fine gift of winning and holding friends, Bob ' s record at the Academy is a series of historical firsts. It will also be a long time before the hardcourt record of our first Wing Commander is even approached. Bucks has strong convic- tions, too, as his early attachment for a Miss McAdams and a green A-Healy will attest. A compatible roomie, his running battle for sur- vivial with the French Dept. kept us in stitches most erf this year. This product (rf our Class is truly a Cadet ' s Cadet. Charles G. Bender, Jr. " Mike " Marietta, CJeorgia Congressional Bom in Kokomo, Indiana, Mike saw the hght and moved to the Southland where he rapidly picked up the native tongue, which became a constant source of joking when he arrived at USAFA to serve his time. At USAFA, Mike excelled as a brilliant academician, his name being a permanent fixture on the Deficiency List. However, in spite of such drawbacks, Mike was not turned out after the final exami- nations and coasted into Graduation. His Spanish ability was somewhat limited, how- ever, comprising a mere two words: " Que hastima. " Richard Malone Bigelow " Dick " El Paso, Texas Senatorial Dick was bom in Virginia, but has lived little in that area because his father is a member of the Army ' s Trip Club. He has seen much of the U.S. and most of Europe and Turkey. Earlier, Dick was a cooperative student at Ga. Tech taking his OJT at Convair, Fort Worth. He has always wanted to be in the Air Force, so he figured that the AFA was the best way to go. The future? Dick hopes that he will never be as skinny as Wood and Starrett. 117 P Jon David Black " Blackie " Johnson City, Tennessee Congressional Out of the Tennessee hills rode a confederate type cadet the Academy is not Ukely to forget soon. Blackie may have lost some of his Johnson City accent, but he has never lost the smile, the friendliness, or the love of humor that drew him so close to all who knew him. These quahties, which gave him success in so many mings, whether as a cheerleader or a unit com- mander, will, when coupled with the devotion to service and sense of duty that are his trade- marks, help him to the top as an officer and leader. Karol Joseph Bobko " Bo " Seaford, New York Congressional Bo was among those in the Wing who were gifted with a sense of humor as well as brains, and with these qualities, he was able to cope with the difficulties of being 8th ' s perpetual Academic Officer. Boundless energy carried him through a tough grind in preparation for a more ambitious Air Force career. All of his friends— including many of the opposite sex- will remember Bo ' s hearty joviality and willing- ness to participate in almost any kind of activi- ty. A good friend to many, Karol is odds on to be a successfid flying officer. 118 James Roland Blackwell " Blackie " Providence, Kentucky Congressional Hailing from the night life of Western Ken- tucky State College, Blackie transferred to the Academy needing only six hours to complete his B.A. Having an intense interest in any- thing that is fun, Jim made his claim to fame in Football and Baseball, and as the Chairman of the Entertainment Committee. One of the most Ukeable guys around, Jim never let the rigorous Academy atmosphere get the best of his social life. His personahty and abihty will make him one of the top men in the Air Force, both socially and professionally. Robert Edward Blake " Honeydew " Presque Isle, Maine Congressional " Honeydew " was a bundle of energy in all outside activities and managed to utihze his study time in the effective realm of sleep. Being playmaker of the basketball team and putter-thrower of the golf team proved that he actually was almost the athlete he said he was. His gift of gab and ability to flatter made him irresistible to the women, although it also es- tablished an unearned reputation for him. Thomas Gayle Bowen " Tom " Decatur, Georgia Don Lewis Brooks " Brooksie " Reserve Jefferson, Texas Congressional Tom, a barefoot Georgia boy, arrived at the Academy as a fugitive from the Confederate Air Force (Georgia ANG). His athletic prow- ess is best remembered and typified oy a trampoline routine performed while bouncing on one each head while in a state of vertigo. Tom became one of the quieter yet very se- vere critics of the " system. " After having a bit of trouble with math the first year, Tom went on to pull through very well. Basically easy going, Twn will find his life in the Air Force enjoyable and full of accomplishments. From Texas— and needless to say, proud of it- Don was always ready for a good time and had a story for every occasion. A quiet hike into the mountains was his own special source of enjoyment. Bom with a true love for flying, his entire life at the Academy was buUt around achieving his goal of flight dirough the clouds. This was displayed by his excellent marks in navigation training which brought him so close to the clouds he loved. ml nJie mi k hi U en b James Wilson Brown III " Baldy " O asset, Massachusetts Congressional Baldy is really from everywhere, as his father was also an Air Force career officer. He also verifies the adage that service " brats " are well rounded in interests and education. Equally at home in Astronautics or Literature, markman- ship or Lacrosse, Baldy always seemed to have job» done before anyone else thought of doing them. There is no doubt that his future will be even more outstanding than his career so far. Robert Lloyd Browning " Bob " Clinton, Mississippi Congressioiml A tall tanned lad from Mississippi sauntered into Lowry Air Force Base four years ago w ith high ideals and a firm conviction to strengthen the Confederate Air Force. Bob did well. He was one of the first honor reps., an athlete, and a scholar (by osmosis). Several times he had runins with the " Yankees " — won a few, lost a few. His most famous Hollywood production, " Wayward Bus, " received much acclaim from that famous critic— the COC. Bob will enter the Air Force with high ideals and an excellent potential to serve his God and his Country. Felt, Oklahoma Jack Boyd Bryan " Jack " Congressional From the hot dry winds of his native state, this lad escaped to the cool mountains of Colo- rado. Jack, hke another famous Oklahoman, Will Rogers, never met a man that he didn ' t like. His cheerfulness and his industry made him the ideal roommate. Though somewhat on the heavy side, he could do well at any sport. However, he usually spent his free after- noons in the sack. Jack ' s perseverance and de- sire to see the job done well will insure an outstanding career in the Air Force. Robert Chester Buckles " Bob " Mahomet, Illinois Congressional An " Army Brat ' with a yen toward flying. Bob entered the Academy to major imknowingly in turnouts. After becoming an Ace in this field. Bob concentrated his efforts on the prescribed courses. The efforts were well spent and the lessons learned were many. He should find the future interesting and exciting. George Wiley Burch Silverdale, Washington Presidential Ej buller alskar jab och bong. Vad stort sker, det sker tyst. Snart marks ej spor av stormens gong, av blixten, sen dien lyst. Stanley Karl Burghardt " BuTgie " Westbury, New York Congressional Bom in Gowryzlowa, Poland, Stan came to the Air Force Academy a likeable and broadminded young man, and easily made the transition to cadet life. A good student, athlete, and man, Stan graduated from the Air Force Academy a likeable and broadminded officer. His high ideals, his abUity and his fine character will make him a credit to the Air Force throughout a long and honorable career. 119 fV James Gordon Burton " Bird ' Nonnal, Illinois Congressional Boundless energy and a driving competitve spirit are the characteristics of the Bird. This small town boy from the Midwest has in four years grown to be one of the outstanding lead- ers of the class, as evidenced by his twice being selected for Group Commander duty in the last year. Whether on the baseball field where he is a power hitting outfielder, in the classroom where he is an above average stu- dent, or commanding his group at a ceremony it is the same ambition-talent combination that put him where he is. He knows what he wants and is capable of achieving it completely. Marvin Wayne Buss " Slim " Clay Center, Kansas Senatorial Slim probably got in more bridge time and TV time than most people, but top notch grades always came floating in. He was always willing to stop work to help his classmates who were in an academic bind or needed a fourth for bridge. When he and his Healy get to- gether, the combination creates a e.g. that make the possibility of testing the Healy roll charac- teristics veiy slight. A man of great capacity, Slim will be remembered for his congenial spirit, good sense of humor, excellent tastes in jazz and his unselfishness among his classmates. Henry David Canterbury " Hank " Huntsville, Alabama Congressional Hank ' s bald head singled him out as a marked man. The ATO ' s couldn ' t get close enough to chew him out because of the glare. Always a ladies ' man. Hank never had a dull moment. Not one to take academics seriously, he could always be found with a date or else bouncing on the trampoline. As captain of the gymnastics team. Hank took first in almost every event he entered, including three AAU championships. His affinity for sports cars will long be re- membered by local 1959. Hank ' s ability to think immediately, and his tremendous sense of humor should combine to make him the hottest F-104 pilot in the Air Force. 120 Michael Patrick Chamberlain Cams " Sundoum " Honolulu, Hawaii Senatorial Mike came to us from the Capital through the State of Washington. Althou a poor second to 10-A Lentz the first year, he still managed to spend considerable time at Si ' s and Tour formation. During the four years he man- aged to travel probably more than any other cadet and took every trip and TDY available. Academics troubled him little and he spent most of his time in varsity soccer and extra- curricular activities. Flying obsessed him and he was a charter " Thunderfink " with Ferrari and Goetze. Probably known best for swinging " deals, " Mike leaves many marks behind him as he leaps off for the AF. James Thomas Carpenter " Carp " Fredericktown, Ohio Congressional An Ohio farmboy and an Air Force brat com- bined gave Carp a combination that is hard to beat. Carp ' s excellence in academics made him well qualified to tutor his not quite so lucky classmates and help to get them mrough, too. Whenever there was a job to be done, you could always find Carp there doing his part. Athletically inclined. Carp qjways excelled in any sport he tried. WiUi a little help from nature, Carp did not have any trouble playing soccer goalie with those hands. Just as he has succeeded in the past he will succeed in the future. Richard Eugene Carr " Rick " East Hartford, Connecticut Congressional Rick came to us originally from the coal fields of Pennsylvania. The larger mountains here be- came his primary winter playground. With three years of practice behind him. Rick leaves here a very good skier. His skiing is surpassed only by his grasp of such bafflers as Mechanics and EE. A private pilot already, Rick is going to Bartow, Florida for military pilot training. He will, that is, if he can tear himself away from the dice and roulette tables of Las Vegas. He should provide many laughs in Florida, being a snow skiier trying to water ski. James Edward Chapman " Chapie " East Point, Georgia Congressional Product of Mississippi (where he was bom), Florida, and Georgia, this confirmed Rebel de- cided that civilian lamin ' at Georgia Tech wam ' t enough and rambled out West to the Falcon Campus. Although the academics proved to be a struggle at times he managed to come out on top with aero department and he scur- ried out the gate that big day. Whether put- tering over his hi-fi or bending over a slipstick, we knew him as one of us and were glad he came. Perhaps soon he ' ll realize the ambition expressed in his high school year book, " To fly non-st( around the world in a jet. " Donald Thomas Chase " Tom " So. Milwaukee, Wis. Son of Deceased Veteran After spending two years in the Class of ' 57 of Heidelberg College, Tom joined the Class of ' 59. Getting Class Ill ' s in the spring became one of Tom s pastimes at the Academy. Even such unpleasant experiences plus the loss of his hair could not dull his continual good nature. Though being at the Academy changed Tom from a beer to a Scotch drinker, it made few other profound changes in him. Tom should find his cheerful attitude and deep insight valuable aids in making a success of his Air Force career and married life. A-S . Robert John Chepolis " Bob " Pine Bro Jc, New Jersey Congressional Although Bob entered as a naive subject of N. J., he has since qualified himself at a true man of the world. " Through exhaustive investi- gation of foreign shores (Esp. London and Wiesbaden), he has concluded that native tal- ent holds the most promise. A connoisseur of fine music, the taste of a gourmet, and owner as well as admir er of staff cars (with and without stars). Bob has completed his education social- ly as well as compihng a fine academic and miUtary record. To ' 59, Bob looks like the 30- year man with high standards of duty comple- menting his honor. Viel gluck! George Charles Clark Corpus CSiristi, Texas Congressional Cadet life was a new experience and a supreme challenge to a young man coming directly from high school. George accepted this challenge and worked faithfully at the tasks of a cadet. His affection for athletics was illustrated by his desire and skill on the football field and in in- tramural sports. A quiet and eventempered per- son, he could take a joke and was respected and liked by classmates and und«t;lassmen. He pos- sesses a firm foundation upon which to build a successful career. Roger Guy Conant " Rog " Skowhegan, Maine Sraiatorial Bom and raised in Skowhegan (Maine of course), Rog decided to take Horace Greeley ' s advice and go West. So taking his first air- plane ride he came to Denver to become a member of the glorious Class of 1959. The glory soon wore off (in about 2 minutes) and Rog settled down to work. A hard worker, he had to devote most of his efforts to academics. He completed Jump School during the summer of 1958, amidst the flair of scarves and hand- kerchief chutes. His athletic career was some- what short due to continued injuries. James W. Connally " Spic " Sao Paulo, Brazil Vice Presidential The terror of the Pampas came to AFA as an Argentine draft dodger seeking sanctuary and training in order that he might someday return to South America as a man of position rather than a fugitive from justice. And off to a fine start he is! Counting Presidents among his friends, his capturing personality and social finesse (particularly in amorous endeavors) has moved him to responsible positions in the Ca- det Wing and a well liked and respected member of Local 1959. Be it Rio, Buenos Aires, or USA, it will indeed be a pleasure to run into Jim in future years. 121 ,( m A Curtis Gerald Cook " Cookie " Coming, New York Congressional With no nvilitary background to lean on. Cookie initiated his career from scratch on 11 July 1955. Making the trip west in search of an education, he found the education and more. The transition from boyhood to man- hood at the hands of his many friends and the Air Force developed in him a dedication to his country which will endure. Lawrence Frank Cotton " Larry " Colon, Republic of Panama Canal Zone With a birthplace like the one he had, it was only natural that Larry would acquire nick- names like " Spic, " and " Immigrant. " Having been bom and raised in Panama and the Canal Zone, his first year at the Academy gave him the opportunity to see snow for the first time— and he promptly came down with a chronic case of pneumonia. An aversion to snow has remained with him, but it hasn ' t been able to freeze out his sense of humor or his talent for trouble. As the first Cotton to attend a mihtary academy, Larry hopes to start a long line of Air Force officers. Brevreter, Ohio Roger Lowell Counts " Rog " Congressional With two years at Kent State University under his belt, Rog has been able to keep his quiet and reserved charm, and has always been a fine friend to those that know him. With a sense of neatness and order, Rog is a lover of fine music, model air planes, and he regrets the long line of broken hearts he has left. Even with his bout with the Pohtical Science Dept., Rog came through as usual, smiling and happy. His inherent kindness and his winning smile promise success in his career as an officer. Harry Hillus Culler, Jr. " Tex " San Antonio, Texas AF Reserve Bom in North Carolina and raised in Texas, Tex decided after a couple of years of college that civilian life wasn ' t for him. So, with an eye to following his dad ' s footsteps in the Air Force, he entered the Acropolis. Immediate- ly a smashing success with the first Class III at the Academy, he later atoned and managed to secure the chairmanship of his class. Got a question? See Culler. Not exactly setting the world on fire in his studies, Tex kept plugging and will graduate with our best wishes and with every chance of success in the mihtary world. Emil Ernest Cwach " Switchy " Yankton, South Dakota Senatorial Power, perception, and personaUty in a king size frame. Scientifically outstanding in aca- demics Emil has retained the balance necessary to become a fine athlete: a defensive standout for the Cardiac Cotton Bowlers. He has always been one of the most admired of the fifty-niners because of his disarming personality and easy going ways which enable him to charm the ears of an elephant, or the ladies. His ambi- tions are formidable and he has talent to match. He has proved throughout his four years that success is habit forming, and no one doubts that he will continue to prove it throughout the future. John M. Davey " Baby " North Kingston, Rhode Island Presidential From a salty background. Jack is a hearty friend to all. Skilled as a leisurely scholar, whether conversing in four languages or as a paratrooper strategist, he found his enjoyment in musical surroundings. His naturally bubbhng enthusiasm was frequently displayed in the form of distributed shaving cream. A ready smile and good spirit have eased his four year trek here, and will assuredly continue to aid him in performing outstandingly in the future. Charles Ronald Davis " C.R. " Tilton, New Hampshire Congressional A Southerner by birth, C.R. spent most of his pre-Academy days in a New England atmos- phere. He brought to the Academy a pessimis- tic attitude and a full head of hair, and leaves as an optimist sans many of his curly locks. Brilliant in the natural sciences, C.R. aided and abetted the efforts of we less skilled individuals with his renowned tutoring sessions. An all-around athlete, his devotion to duty and comrade lacked nothing, and with these at- tributes the Academy ' s loss is the Air Force ' s gain. |fR5l T f ■ •v. Howard Dale Davis " Dale " Weston, Missouri Congressional Bom in the small midwestem village of Weston, Missouri, Dale had lived most of his Ufe in and about Weston until packing his bags and hustling out to the Academy. A bit more ma- ture than most cadets. Dale attended the Uni- versity of Missouri for two years majoring in Mechanical Engineering and enjoying the life of a typical student. It was at M.U. that Dale met his " wife, " and learned the " knack " of studying. At the Academy, Dale ' s studies were not difficult, especially math and the sciences. Williani Sheldon Davis III " WiW ' Demarest, New Jersey Congressional Lord, guard and guide the men who fly. Through the great spaces of the sky. Be with them traversing the air. In dark ' ning storms or sunlight fair. Oh hear me when I lift my prayer. For those in peril in the air. Robert S. Delligatti " DeH " Albri it, West Virginia Congressional From the fertile fields of the West Virginia coal mines comes our boy Dell. He was way- laid at the Washington and Lee campus for a few years, but Dell was not one to let this stop him and soon found himself in the swing of the military. After a successful year on the freshman football team, his second season was spent on the tour path due to a little incident in the southern part of this continent. The next football season saw the development of the Delligatti Limp, and his retirement from the sport. He is now a scholar and the best teacher in the class of ' 59. Thomas Gardner Derrickson, II " El ToTo " Los Altos, California Senatorial Seeking the glory of a fighter pilot, Toro left the sunny clime of California to become edu- cated in the ways of the birds. Not finding navigation flights very stimulating, Toro tried for renown in other fields. In the game of " Beat the System, " our hero was no match for the powers that be, as a Class II ribbon with four clusters can testify. It was during the European Campaign that Toro ' s true talents emerged, earning him his nickname. With pilot training finally approaching, our future leader is preparing hims by racing Corvettes in his overpowered MGA. Joseph Gregory Desantis " Wop ' Kearney, New Jers Congressional A httle man, the " Wop " took on a big job- getting through four years at USAFA. He didn ' t have to worry about academics too much and athletics were a good way to use up the time not needed for study— moving air- planes on Friday nights was certainly athletic. But his greatest pride here was being a member of Sixth Squadron. 123 John William Dolan " Doolie " Northridge, California Senatorial Bom in New York, Doolie soon fled to the sunny shores of CaUfomia. After four years on tile snowy slopes of the Rockies, he will probably be one of the few people happy with the weather in Southern Texas. Doolie s aca- demic ability was somewhat hampered by his lack of study, but this left plenty of free time to pick letters in both football and track. Lee R. Dorey " Lee " Richmond, Virginia Congressional Hailing from the semi-suburbs, Lee showed up in 1955 with a few country traits, but the military system changed him somewhat. As a second and third classman, he was noted for his stem enforcement of Fourth Class Customs. Preferring novels and music over studying, Lee nevertheless has made a good academic record. Seeing him in his Volks, one knows instinctively that he is a natural fighter pilot. With his con- sistent determination, Lee cannot help but be an outstanding officer. Paul Theodore Douskey " Dousk " New Milford, Connecticut CongressionaJ Taking on many responsibilities at an early age, this Polish lad of New Milford, developed a seriousness and maturity acquired only in the later years of most young men. Whether it meant doing a small menial task or solving a difficult problem, Paul was always ready to do his best. Those who confided in him found not only understanding but the willingness to help no matter what the inconvenience. His sincerity and love of mankind will add that extra spark to a loyal defense of our country. Robert John Dwyer " Bob " Elmira Heights, New York Congressional Bob gave up a promising career in a fruit stand to come west and join the 8th Squadron volunteers. By devoting all his time to eating, sleeping, and brawling. Bob managed to stay on the " D " List most of his career as a cadet. He believed every point above 70 was wasted and he wasted few. There were a few brief periods when he was pro and he indulged in a few seasons of varsity sports. He was dis- tinguished by being a charter member of the first Academy " D " List and receiving the turn- out ribbon with 7 clusters. Er is so, wie 1 24 i ' g«- Calmar, Iowa Gerald E. Elsbemd " Bongie " Congressi onal Centereach, New York " Bongie " never told anyone what bonges were, but he maintained the franchise in them that he brought with him from Calmar, Iowa. After serving in the Security Service of the USAF for three years, including a tour of Newfoundland, military life was nothing new to him. He was a success in almost everything he attempted, as testified by his academic and military standing, and his good fortune in finding his bride, Joanne. His natural drive and personality, coupled with his understanding of personnel should carry him far. Arthur G. Elser " Cyrano " Congressional Bom in Jackson Heights, New York, and raised in Centereach, New York. He didn ' t have much trouble with academics with the ex- ception of Aero. Cyrano fenced on varsity for four years and captained the team for three years. His good sense of duty and motivation should help him make a success of his career in the Air Force. % . Robert Holder Fay " Bobbo " Qtiincy, Massachusetts Congressional From his Massachusetts background, Bobbo has brought to this institution a flavor of old New England. But the good natured ribbing of his classmates for his " Yankee " accent was always met with a laugh and a return in kind. Never having any sweat in academics, Bobbo has always been one of the first to respond to the suggestion of a social gathering or party. His athletic abihty bore fruit the last year as he coached several of the squadron ' s toughest intermurder teams. Bobbo ' s talents will no doubt lead him to a successful service career. James Kaigler Fletcher " Fletch " San Antonio, Texas Congressional Fletch came to the Academy adequately pre- pared both mentally and physically and went right to work, taking part in many activities, playing football, and winning his stars in the first year. He then turned his interest to things outside the Academy, but finally decided to remain in the fold: a decision for which neither he nor the Air Force will be sorry. His ability in the sciences and as a leader insures many a success in the future. Charles Joseph Ferrari " Chuck " Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts Senatorial Rallying from the grounds of Von Steuben, Chuck greeted AFA with a smile and stubborn determination. From terrifying knife fights with the floor of 894, he has developed into an ag- gressive fighter pilot using his hapless room- mate as a pawn. Although somewhat of an English speaking Don Juan, he has been able to have himself from entanglements, save an insatiable love of the air. Academics proved hardly a challenge and he conquere d them all except padnetism. In future years his warm smile and quick wit will serve him well, and ' 59 buddies will always be glad to see him again. Larry Douglas Fortner " Fort " Pennington, Virginia Congressional Editor of the Talon, " Fort " saw it become one of the best magazines on the national college level— an indication of his abilities. One of the more serious members of the class, he took part in some of the more important activities for the cadets such as the Car Committee. All of these activities show that he has the abihty to " get the job done " and do it with good or- ganization and intelligence. These characteris- tics show a promising future for " Fort. " Larchmont, New York Gerald B. Finneran " Cerry " Congressional Four years ago, a young man came ' Txnincing " onto the Academy scene and leaves still " bouncing. " Hailing from the " seat of culture, " Gerry has displayed amazing abihty in the " social sciences, " with " painting " being his most well known hobby. Well liked by all, equally adept in all phases of his Cadet life, the " Syn- dicate " leaves its mark and goes on to a life filled with promise of success, adventure, and " adding machines. " Ronald Qay Fox " Ron " Stockton, California Congressional Having taken a random sampling of our sister academies and institutions, Ron finally decided on a life in the wild blue yonder. This hope, coupled with his uncanny abihty in mathe- matics, mechanics, and the apphed sciences, has given Ron the realization of his goal. A slender lad, steadily working at his heart ' s de- sire, Ron will go on to a happy and successful life enjoying the fruits of his determination, drive, and a " job well dwie. " 125 Albert Anthony Gagliardi, Jr. " Gag " Newport, Rhode Island Congressional Bom and raised in Newport, R. I., " Gag " entered the United States Air Force Academy in order to prepare himself to be an Air Force officer. Interested in sports he played three years of varsity soccer. The class of ' 59 will always remember " Gag " and Don Miller with their presentation and introduction of the in- famous Cadet Wing Dings. Being one of Chaz ' s boys you could usually see him many times during the week at the Harbor Inn. W - Stephen Earl Galios " Greek " Napa, California Congressional The golden Greek of Napa Valley, described by Sports Illustrated as the finest football player on the never-to-be-forgotten Cardiac Kids of fifty-eight. To us, his classmates, however, the Greek is more than a fine athlete. He is a fine cadet, a fine student, and a fabulous friend. With unlimited officer potiential, the Greek will surely make a name for himself in the Air Force surpassing everything now written about him— except those things written in the minds and hearts of his friends. Jon Anthony Gallo " Jonny " Eglin A.F.B., Florida Presidential Striding down the hall, water-pistol in hand, Jon was truly a deadly adversary. A scream— a race down the hallway— and he is quickly in his room, the door barricaded, another prac- tical joke having been accomplished. Jon came to AFA as an AF Brat and soon figured a way to beat the system. However, in addition to beating the system, he also succeeded in com- piling a good academic and athletic record. He fostered a flair for practical jokes through ex- ploits like those above. He topped off his cadet career by marriage following graduation. Cares Garber, Jr. ' Jerry " Alexandria, Virginia His loyalty is his honor Gerald Garvey " Garv " Congressional Chicago, Illinois Senatorial Garv claims fame on the basis of his inde- pendent invention of the phonograph, which claim will probably remain as unsatisfied as have the many which he processed for the laundry. Lessor notes in his cadet career in- clude the fact that he was a good Squadron Commander, an efficient Supply Officer, an unread essayist, and a featured actor for the Follies Bergere. He also had a ready wit, and a pleasant smile. I- a : :■:■ ' 1 ,- . John Jefferson Gaunt, Jr. " j.jr Little Rock, Arkansas Son of Deceased Veteran Contrary to popular opinion JJ did graduate from high school. JJ is a playboy at heart and whenever he gets the chance is a playboy in practice. At home at a card table, quite often he may be found in a friendly or perhaps un- friendly game. JJ may make the Air Force an excellent officer if he can be kept out of the pad long enough. Walter Clarence Givens " Mike " Pearisbiirg, Virginia Congressional This redheaded pool of energy arrived one day in July, and, after shaking off the straw from his farm, settled down to work. After one look at the system and another at academics, he decided to beat both. Academics fell before his blows and he still had the time for bridge in- struction, but he lacked a week of beating the system. His warm laugh can always be heard, whether it be in the classroom or on a date, and on the athletic field his will to win won the acclaim of all his classmates. In gaining this perfectionist, the Air Force will gain an officer with a future. Richard Barron Goetze, Jr. " Dick " Cos Cob, Connecticut Congressional With a few ideas about life and a love for swimming, dancing and flying, Dick came to the Air Force to fulfill his life ' s ambition. He left the soft life of a student engineer at Ohio State to take up a hfe-time service to his coun- try. During his stay here he gave us the name for our mascot, and the idea for our graduation parade. Most will remember him for his flying, but a few others for his salt mines. While there ' s a plane to be flown in the Air Force, you ' ll find Dick near. William Herbert Gold " war Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Congressional Coming out of the coal mines, " Will " headed for his new mountain resort home. Having two goals in mind, " Will " set out to achieve them. The first, graduating from the Academy, took 4 long years of toil, tours, class Ill ' s and poop sheets. The second, however, took only one month. This consisted of a date, a wing, and a ring. With these accomplishments behind him, he ' s now ready for a bright and out- stading career. As everyone knows, " Will " is and will continue to be a great " airman. " David Michael Goodrich " Dave " San Antonio, Texas Presidential Bom an " Army brat, " Dave came to the Acade- my with the dream of becoming a professional officer. A bom instigator, he managed to get into as many and varied activities as his aca- demic grades could withstand. Dave emerged from his cadet career, never having lost sight of his ideal of mUitary professionahsm, and steadfast in his ideas for a future service career. Douglas G. Graffin, Jr. " Doug " Chappaqua, New York Congressional Although most of his classmates are familiar with Doug ' s scientific tendencies, few but his best friends know of his unusual interest in people and management. He has grasped well one of the most fundamental lessons to be learned at the Academy— the ability to view de- tails in perspective as they affect the whole, and not as ends in themselves. This ability is one of the prime requisites of a modem Air Force officer and Doug ' s possession of it will undoubtedly do much to further his assured success in his chosen career. White Oak, Texas David E. Griffin " Griff " Congressional Coming to the Academy straight from high school, Griff continued in the succession of academic success which he began there. An outstanding questioner, he has a knack of ob- taining answers to his questions. A somewhat confirmed bachelor Griff will take his big Lincoln up to Lowry for 26 weeks after gradua- tion. An inquisitive mind and a great knowl- edge of Air Force activities are two of the traits that can help him become a great officer in the USAF. 127 Philadelphia, David H. Groark " Dave " Pennsylvania Senatorial Another record setter in the class of ' 59. What with Sweeney becoming a " second to noner " Davie became the leader in his class in the field of Class Ill ' s, restriction, and tours awarded for his outstanding performance. The little black cloud perpetually hanging over the Academy in reality belongs to Davie. He hopes, however, to leave it here when he graduates so it may rain out many a parade for the struggling classes to follow. John Forrest Gulledge " Injun " Sallisaw, Oklahoma Congressional First Squadron Commander for two years and center on the famed " Kardiac Kids ' football team, John has left an indelible mark on the Academy records. He has been an outstanding Honor Representative for four years, along with many numerous significant accomplishments. John is the typically serious " Okie " on or off the football field. He is marrying Miss Edith Clinch of Everett, Washington on 4 June, and travels to Moore Air Base in Te.xas on 15 July for pilot training. In the future, he should be well-known in Air Force circles. James Poteat Gunter, Jr. " Stretch " Bon Air, Virginia Congressional If you ' re looking for Stretch on the weekend, you ' d better look first on the baseball diamond, a hunting trip, or the ski slopes. While during the week you ' ll find him giving his books a fair shake— never a book worm— he ' s just con- scientious enough to dispense all his duties with that extra effort needed to insure a good job. He ' s certainly a career officer— fighters all the way— with the Jump Wings he wears testi- fying that he ' ll always be right in the thick of it. And as Ueutenant or general, everyone will always be sorry to see him leave for a new base. Harlow Kenneth Halbower " Ha " Anthony, Kansas Congressional It must get monotonous— winning the cham- pionship in foil in the Western Intercollegiate Fencing Conference three times in a row. Maybe to relieve the boredom, Hal joined the Academy Aero Club . . . and when he wasn ' t busy there, he was rolUng up several million pro points in all of his academics. I guess that year at Kansas State must have helped. Always the sporting type, Hal rolls around the country- side in an Austin-Healey. However, he ' ll soon add a station wagon to the stable . . . that ' s for the wife and (eventually) kids. 128 Stephen Anthony Hamer " Red 2 " Hohokus, New Jersey Regular Army Characteristics: This animal is most often found in the supine position mounted on a blanket of blue (a mannerism quickly spreading through- out the zoo). Originally captured by the Brownshoes for the nosecone of the Corporal missile, but chattered excessively and was con- verted to a instructor. Needing instructors, USAFA captured animal which got in wrong line and ended up as captive specimen for English department experiments. Result of four year testing— Excellent. Warning: Valuable animal is hard to find; treat gently and he will be a friend for life. Flaye Maxwell Hammond, IH " Senator " Rocky Mount, North Carolina Congressional Have jump wings, will travel. Wire Hammond, Col orado Springs. Daniel Wise Hardage " Dan " Lindsey, Oklahoma Senatorial This quiet lad came to the Academy from a small town in Oklahoma. Although he has the reputation for being rather conservative and re- tiring, Dan is an ardent practical joker. He also has the ability to get things done and will be long remembered for the outstanding job that he did in acquiring an excellent set of working materials for the Cadet Gun Club. An avid hunter himself, Dan has had a great deal of influence with many cadets to take up the sport of hunting. He has been an excellent roommate and will make the Air Force a fine officer. Joseph Alexander Hamitchek " Harney " Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Congressional As graduation approaches I am twenty-one years old, single, and likely to remain the latter for a reasonable amount of time. A quick sampling of my thoughts produces this: the four years here have been tough ones and I am glad they are almost over. I am eager for the future. I am curious to know when I will meet the girl who will be my wife. I wonder if I will die in an airplane. I want to travel to the moon. I look forward to being able to study what I want to study. But most of all I look forward to the day when I can look back at this paragraph and smile. John G. Hayes, Jr. " j.g; San Mateo, California Congressional Bom in Indiana, but spending his boyhood in Hawaii and California, J.G. learned to ski in the latter state. His laugh was frequently heard in the dormitory at almost any hour. A better than average student, J.G. is going to make a mark for himself in a scientific field. He is in- dependent, yet very sociable. J.G. is a good athlete which shows up as a determination to never let circumstances get him down. All these attributes will enable J.G. to go a long way in the Air Force. John Richard Hayes, Jr. " Gator " Shreveport, Louisiana Congressional Drawn from the swamps by a desire to fly, " Gator " spent four years trying to re-educate the Yankees in the history of the Civil War. Finding no fighter planes at the Academy, " Gator ' turned his attentions to such exploits as the European Trip and the T-Bird Cam- paign, receiving the Class U and Turnout Rib- bons with clusters. After four years with few dull moments, we have this to say about " Gator " : if he devotes half as much time to his Air Force career as he has to his extra- curricular activities, his career cannot help but be successful. Floyd Robert Hester " Floyd " Senatorial Indianapolis, Indiana Bom and raised about five miles southeast of Indianapolis, a locality then in the country. Floyd ' s favorite sports were hunting and fish- ing, although I don ' t think he ever caught any fish. An old fan of the Lone Ranger, Floyd named his big white Corvette " Silver. " He always spent much of his time studying. Al- though a rather quiet person Floyd was always a very sincere and dependable worker. He hopes to be the first man to make a round trip to the moon. Someone will be first, why not Floyd? Richard Madden Hilbert " Dick " Larchmont, New York Senatorial Bom and raised in Mamaroneck, of which the village of Larchmont is a part, Dick had spent all his life in the East until coming to the Academy. Older than most cadets, Dick knew the value of perserverance and hard work, and would often be studying while others " sacked out. " A year at the University of Rochester and a year in the " financial world " preceded Dick ' s coming to the Academy. Also in favor of a good time, Dick was never one to pass up a good party, and graduated with an Austin Healey and prospects of a jaguar hunt in old Mexico. 129 y ■ ' trsk Ransom Steele Holmes, III Westport, Ck)nnecticut Congressional With visions of weekend ski trips acx»mpanied by gay Denver night life, Steele unsuspectingly left Hinsdale, Illinois to, as it was told to him, " make tradition " at the Air Force Academy. After four years he is beginning to adjust to military life. He played football and ran on the track team but is better known for being a non-confromist in that he wants to fly trans- ports rather than fighters and he liked the mechanics ctwrse. Bradley C. Hosmer " Brad " Air Force, U.S.A. Congressional a service Brad came to the Ac-ademy from family, and his background lent a cosmopolitan flavor to his considerable store of knowledge. His diversified interests led him to successes in many fields. A notable fine scholar, one of the top men in the class, he won a coveted Rhodes scholarship for himself, and pride for the Academy. Always in the upper bracket of our chain of command, his dedication and ability mark him for a brilliant career. Thomas Daniel House, Jr. " Casa " Decatur, Georgia Senatorial Throughout Tom ' s cadet career, time was " of the essence. " His schedule, ambitions, and dreams were always as steady and level-headed as his own personahty: Sundays to ski, mid- nights to do his homework, afternoons to work on the high-bar (or upon occasion, to " bag it " ). Graduation brings Tom the objects of his work and the rewards of his sincerity and constancy— which include a very charming permanent roommate. His friends, and there are many, wish for " Casa " the things which his friendliness and gentlemanliness have earned: health, happiness, and a " fighter. " John Griffeth Houston " Deacon " Portland, Oregon Congressional Fort Collins, Colorado Still water may run deep, but the surging tor- rent that is Deac runs far deeper. A master mathematician and a marvel in the humanities, he leaves little breathing space for those on the bottom of the academic curve. But far from a rd, he will always be remembered for both athletic ability and his partying spirit. If the Air Force seeks the all around man, then the search is over. Neither his classmates nor the tour ramp will soon forget Deac ' s boundless spirit, and the Air Force would do well to pull its chin in when Deac ' s sky blue Buick leaves 1 3Q the Academy for the last time. John Morris Howell " El Cuerpo " Congressional Dayton, Kentucky Remaining in his native state, Cuerp said fare- well to his parents one day, and walked into the waiting arms of the ATO ' s. But through the or- deal, his flashing smile and wealth of humor and wit never deserted him. An ardent competitor, Cuerp excelled in gymnastics as well as in any other field of athletics he entered. Leaving a trail of broken hearts in the course of his four years, he still found time to hit the books, and coming from behind at times, he finished in fine style. His future in the Air Force is a bright one with his common sense and sense of humor. John R. Hundemer " Jack " Congressional The pride and joy of Dayton, Kentucky, Jack has proven that more comes from the hills than race horses and moonshine. A mechanical wizard. Jack changed homes midway through his Junior year to become one of the outstand- ing members of Fourth Squadron. The presi- dent of the ski club his Freshman and Senior years. Jack gained the respect of everyone for his diligent work. Early to bed and late to rise was Jack ' s outlook on how tlie day should be nm. A leader in whatever he does. Jack will make the Air Force a fine officer and a gentleman as well. »ar H WBpOBW«ayf- i mtt m Leigh Hale Hunt, Jr. " The Snake " Hill AFB, Utah Presidential An Air Force " brat " with a dream to become the world ' s hottest fighter pilot, Leigh arrived at the Academy as 135 pounds of potential tiger. Four rich years— and 10 pounds— later, he left for Bartow with his dream broadened to include a sincere dedication to the Air Force and his country. He also managed to maintain— he hopes— despite a string of broken hearts, his bachelor tendencies. Robert Lee Hurley " Jiggles " Long Beach, California Congressional Good natured and a lot of fun is the best way to describe Bob. An Air Force brat, raised in California, he stored up a lot of simshine and brought it with him to the Academy. Bob likes to burn up a tennis court and is also a fair man on the golf course. He made the Dean of Faculty ' s lionor list a couple of times at tlie end of the semester, and was given the privilege of taking some extra exams to show his ability. Bob ' s greatest prowess is in his storytelling, and many gcx)d times have been had just listening to him ply his trade. Bob will go to Moore AFB, Texas for his first assignment. John Frederick Hutchinson, Jr. " Fuzzy " Venice, Florida Congressional Finishing high school Fuzzy gave up his quest for tile Fountain of Youth, saddled an alligator and headed for Pike ' s Peak. He carried with him a civilian pilot ' s license and a dream. That dream? To become a jet pilot. In preparation for the fulfillment of this dream Fuzzy took the Squadron Officer ' s course, became the best pistol shot at the Academy, and the first cadet to have actual combat experience (he played Daniel Boone widi a bear on Herman Hill), bought a white and red Austin-Healey, and gained a slot to attend pilot training in his native state, Florida. George Roy Inness, Jr. " Roy " Donaldsville, Louisiana Senatorial From the Louisiana bayous tliis young man took a Uttle four-year trip through " The Cli- mate Capital of the World " on the way to pilot ' s training, and found, among other things, snow and a career. Roy was equally apt in the classroom, on the athletic field, or at any other thing he was interested in. His devotion, his liard work and his perseverance should greatly aid his career. Jimmie Laurence Jay " Fats " Sweewater, Texas Congressional Jim was our only exchange student. Senor Jay, our Mexican tenor came to us from the border region and while here was best noted for his stirring renditions of the Air Force song. Fats was a member of a notorious quartet of rabble rousers sometimes known as the CWC staff. Cadet jay held the " Dear John " record at Sky Blue U with the amazing total of 14, a credit both to liis trusting soul and his ability to judge character, not withstanding the fact that he was the 6th Squadron Commander. Wayne Otto Jefferson, Jr. " Jeff " Gainesville, Florida Congressional From die Everglades of Florida came Jeff to make good at the Air Force Academy. Jeffs quiet maimer often belied his abilities. Partly duo to being an Army brat, but mostly due to his mature outlook, he never lost his cheerful g(K)d spirits. Due to his abiUties and industry he finished near the top of his class. As a ca- det he held several positions of responsibility in the Cadet Wing chiiin of command. Jeffs maturity, cheerful attitude and leadership abili- ties will take him far as an Air Force Officer. 131 Robert Sidney Franklin Jennings " Bob " Colonia, New Jersey Senatorial Bob came to the AFA fresh out of high school with high ideals and a strong desire to fly. Four years of training were taken in stride in a moderate maimer, chmaxed by the graduation for which he had worked steadily and earnest- ly. The ideals have mellowed a little toward reality, but the desire is still there. This should be the beginning of a long and productive ca- reer in the United States Air Force. Hansford Tillman Johnson " Old Man " Aken, South Carolina This zealous young lad abandoned his studies at Clemson for an opportunity to better pre- pare himself for an Air Force career at the Academy. Always a good student, he attacked the books with such zeal that it seems to have caused a lessening in the density of the growth on his head. His command voice is famous. How could a man with such drive and ability fail to achieve success. Theodore B. Johnson " Teddy Bear " Senatorial Huntington, West Virginia Congressional From the coal dust of West Virginia to the snow of Colorado came the jovial Swede in search of what life had to offer. Life at the Academy was not quiet as he dreamed but he stuck to his duty and continued to bring a little light into the lives of those around him. His carefree and good natured attitude along with his tireless energy have made him successfvJ in the past and will undoubtedly make him just as successful in the future. Lawrence Malcolm Jolly " Larry " Willits, California Senatorial Bom in California, raised in California, but will not pay taxes in California, Larry will someday have a Mercedes 300SL to drive around Florida. Although not always happy at the Academy, he has at least learned the rudiments of military ways and means. Outspoken to the extreme, he had a rough time with the instructors. If he will be as cautious in an airplane as he is while driving a car he will have a long and successful military career. 132 Edward Hjalmer Josephson " Ed " Concord, New Hampshire Congressional Ed was bom with a love of flying that grew through the years. It was this love that led him to the AF Academy. During the next four years Ed became a member of the Fighter Pilot Fraternity, in heart if not in fact, as evidenced by his European and Far East Campaigns. His free-time endeavors ranged from photography to skiing to soaring. He had a sense of humor that helped him endure the trials of themio and the fnistrations of Gemian. The combina- tion of his love for flying and his sense of humor will serve him well in his Air Force career. Thomas Joseph Jozwiak " Joz " Detroit, Michigan Congressional At 6 ' 3 " and 215 pounds " Joz, " or " A-Tom " to some, was the mainstay at end for the Falcon Footballers for four years and culminated his career with an All-American Honorable Men- tion. Very agile for his size, Tom attracted the young ladies with his dancing as well as his jovial yet sincere personaUty. Distinguished in other fields as well, after all who could forget the " Jozwiak Curve, " Joz was always wide awake and alert and could always be counted on to stay up all night to get the job done. sna Bginnss wai seiBji ' Charles Arthur Kaake, Jr. " Chuck " Imlay City, Michigan Congressional Unimpressed, if not untouched, by the Uni- versity of Michigan and Michigan Tech, Chuck turned to the Academy in pursuit of a flying career. Hurdhng the Navigational Training Program, which seemed to be a necessary evil, he is now looking forward to the accomplish- ment of this ambition. Personable, and ap- preciative of the simple things in life, plus sincerity and frankness are his hallmarks. The airlines have supplied a cute factor which will increase his quarters allowance, perhaps severalfold. Louis Kingsland, Jr. " Lou " Midland Park, New Jersey Senatorial TTie demands of academics have proven to be no real test for Lou ' s abihties, since he has mastered all of them with relative ease dis- tinguishing himself in this field. If there is a question, it can be assured that Lou has the answer. His activities have not been confined to the academic side of the fence; he has par- ticipated in athletics from a personal enjoyment and conditioning point of view. Lou continues his studies at Cal Tech, and his future contribu- tions in the technical fields can be expected to be great. [ ' .Taos, New Mexico Conrad Michael Kay " Casey " At a very early age this bright young lad shook his sombrero, guitar, caballo, and Spanish ac- cent to seek a military career at the New Mexico Military Institute. After three years of this he thought he would have the USAFA program hacked; however, after that first day of " Chin-inI " " Chest-up! " drill, drill, routine, the sack time wasn ' t as much as expected. He did overcome these " slight " obstacles, though, and starred as a wmnist and cheerleader. Everyone will remember good ole Casey as a " Fightin ' Falcon, " and a fighter pilot all the way. Robin Mark Kozelka " Kozy " Springfield, Illinois US Army Already an old soldier when he appeared on the Academy scene, Kozy brought with him ex- perience from the University of Illinois, MIT, and the US Army (Artillery). As a classmate, he was a true friend; as a cadet, he was an out- standing leader. Not one to rest on his laurels, Kozy attacked the academic problem with vigor and was an everpresent member of the SML. His desire to win helped bring us many victories on the athletic fields. Off to Pilot Training in his Austin Healy, he will be re- membered as the man you ' d someday want to fly your wing. Nathaniel H. Keezell " Nat " Congressional Harrisonburg, Virginia Congressional Nat ' s old Virginia family prepared him well for the Air Force. With a classical math back- ground and strong individualism, he contributed materially to the formation of the Academy. His academic excellence and devotion to the A ir Force will assure him a leading place in the space age. Lorin Burton Krueger, II " Kreg " Angola, Indiana Senatorial Kreg entered our ranks vrith an open mind and eagerness to bum. Indiana had left its mark on him, for basketball was his favorite sport. Ready to have fun and able to be " hazed " by the Syndicate of Sixth Squadron were char- acteristic. He didn ' t sleep all of the time, just part of it. As a member of the engaged club his spare time was taken up with extracurricular activities. A four year hitch with the Dance Committee was enjoyed by Kreg and he demon- strated that he was a strong advocate of fleixibility in social situations. 133 Edward Frederick Lankenau, III " Links " Oceanside, New York Congressional In the long hard hours that make up life at the Academy there is a definite need for something or someone to ease the strain. Ed, the or- ganizer, filled this all-important gap. A man of far above average ability, Ed suffered being overlooked by all but his closest friends with- out complaint. Only we knew how much his hard work, his devotion, and his sense of duty meant to the Academy. By teaching us to laugh at omselves, Ed was both a friend and a tutor. In an Air Force where reward is based on performance Ed will be among the brighter stars. John Edwin Lee " Reb " Holly Springs, Mississippi Wearing his first pair of shoes this lad from the South joined the fight against the system on July II and never gave up. A natural athlete and possessed of the qualities of a leader, he never developed a fear of academics and as a result always stayed just above the line. Warm and friendly, he made friends easily and always made life more enjoyable for them and himself. A ready smile and an ability to do the job a little better than the next guy will make him an excellent officer and a popular person. 134 3W . Ronald Todd Lanman " Canyon " Lexington, Kentucky Senatorial Recognized by all four classes as a strict but fair leader. Canyon held the respect of everyone associated with him. Mixing theory with practi- cahty, he retained a determination throughout his tour at the Academy to do his utmost to keep the progress of the brand new institution from digressing away from militarism in this critical period. While always considerate of other people ' s feelings, he nonetheless had that enviable ability to remind others unmistakably, when they were allowing standards to slip. He will be one of the finer representatives of USAFA. Congressional Michigan Richard D. Lee " Dick " Congressional Dick left schooling for medicine for prepara- tion in a somewhat different field but of the same character— service. He found himself " married " within a year after coming to the Academy, and so, found little time to be out with the boys. Often called by the misnomer, " fats, " he competed with the more bulbous members of his class for the dubious prize of who was the least fat. He proved that he was (least) when he bought a TR-3 while the others bought local monstrosities. £ ' Paul S. Lasen " Lose " Washington, D.C. Regular Coming from an Air Force family, " Lase " has belonged to the Air Force for a long time. He never learned. He is at present probably the only man in the Air Force to be double rated— both times as a navigator. He never learned. Originally commissioned in June of 1955, he is starting all over again in June of 1959. He never learned! He spent VA years at a civilian college before starting on his 4 years here. He should have learned something by now. He learned to tolerate an English major for a roommate for one thing. If perseverance pays off, he ' ll have earned a big place. Good man to have. Dana C. Lentz " Lunch Box " Anchorage, Alaska Presidential Dana is an Air Force brat who came to the AFA wise to the system. However, the ATO ' s were a mite wiser than he, and between lO-A ' s and tours little was seen of him first year. Dana considered himself somewhat of an ac- complished lover and garnered numerous femmes from which to pick. But being the confirmed bachelor, he loved them and left AFA single. Dana managed to work in varsity Basketball and Track and good seasons of intra- mural football. A great one for fun and games, Dana has an ashtray and drawer to attest to his prowess. At any rate, we all look forward to bumping into T-6 soon. W ' ■ k - Donald Brooks Livingston " Nashua " Englewood, New Jersey Senatorial A great competitor, Don " Nashua " brought honor and fame to the Academy. Four times captain of the track team and twice for the cross country team, he led the teams to victory and several records. He distinguished himself in other fields of athletic endeavors. As H. T. and an undergrad from Nebraska U. can testify, Don is a terror in the boxing ring. His speed was not confined to athletics, however, for his danc ing ability and personality won him ac- claim among the sorority circles. Known as a truly great guy and competitor he should do well for himself. Charles Martin Lofton, Jr. " Marty " Newport, Arkansas Senatorial Rebel by birth and first love, Marty ' s signal is to try the new idea. Marty ' s tradition is not traditional at all. A book collector of the first order, his interests are wide and varied. Con- temporary problems were his thoughts and pub- lic affairs was his major. His pleasures were in women, music, and the keg. In women: knowl- edgeable and traveled. In music: classical and jazz. Eager to try his hand at fighters, Marty seeks a career on the international scene. His ambition: Commander of NATO. Robert Thomas Loveridge " Pelon " Dillon, Montana Congressional Cadet Loveridge, better known to the cadets as Senor Pelon is probably the best boxer the Ca- det Wing has seen or will see for sometime. Bob haUs from Dillon, Montana and is noted for liking the Academy so much better than Montana that he gave up part of his last sum- mer and Christmas leave to stay at the Acade- my. It might be said in PASSING that he has had his troubles with the academicians. They are thinking of putting Major in Electrical En- gineering on the diploma. Bob ' s future wife, Mary Lightfoot, now a high school teacher at Florence, Colorado, is also from Montana. Clark Edward Lovrien " C. E. " Milwaukee, Wisconsin Congressional C. E. has always had a taste for speed, (juality, and the bizarre. Granted, these (jualities have been more apparent in his hobbies tlian his academic or military record, wliich have kept him in his room several " Maverick " niglits. He will long be remembered for his close up pic- txire of a glider take-off, his accomplislunents in gymnastics, his loud jazz, and his black cor- vette. His outstanding abilities will certainly carry him through an exceptional career marked by many worthy achievements and niuncrous good friends. Robert Eugene Lowe " Lowsac " Auburn, Massachusetts The teaching profession lost a ready wit and a man with capabilities which ranged from acting to physics when Bob decided to take the round-about road to the United States Marines. Tlie same thing could be said of the Air Force: it is indeed our loss that the chest which awed hundreds of doolies in bayonet class will wear the dress blue of the Marine Corps instead of Air Force " Shade 84 ' s. " Just as he showed himself to us as a conscientious, yet good- humored worker, so will he display on other days and other fields the characteristics which qualify him to be a Jarhead. Edward Joseph Lynch " Ed ' Senatorial Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Congressional Arriving at USAFA from Philadelphia with a year of college already behind him and with a gift for mechanical tinkering, Ed began four years of endearing himself to his fellow cadets with his ever present humor, his willing and invaluable academic tutoring, and his in- dividualism. His many hours spent paying for the privilege of being different were good preparation for his position as Squadron Com- mander his first class year. Ed has made an indelible impression on all of us, and we will always remember him with a special, sin- cere fondness. 135 Donald Eugene Madonna " Wop " Denver, Colorado Congressional The only Denverite in Fifty-Nine, and the only one we could take if they are all like him. With more energy than any other three of his classmates, Don manages to keep all those around him hustling to keep up. A man of in- tense ambition which can only be matched by his fierce pride and boundless energy, Don knows full well what he wants out of life and has far earlier than most of us set his course. If all his ambitions were personal though he would not be so endeared to us, but there are those who know of the fight Don will make against any odds to protect the rights of friends and classmates. Richard Albert Mason " Dick " Mount Vernon, Missouri Congressional Dick can best be described as sincere. Always willing to try anything once, and give it his very best characterizes his life as a cadet. His two years at the University of Missouri established in him the ability to buckle down and complete an assignment. His interest in flying is evidenced in his seven years of flying experience. All of these traits should stand him in good stead in his career in the United States Air Force. Leonard J. Mahony, Jr. " Len " Elmhurst, New York Service Reared in the East, this city lad came West to learn of the " blue yonder. " The first task to be overcome was to develop the habit of speaking slow enough to be understood. Generally con- servative and easy-going Len had not too much difficulty transitioning to a military way of life. During his " tour " at the Academy he kept himself busy with sports, extra activities, and his miUtary work. With his ambition and drive Len should have continued success throughout his career in the Air Force. Charles Aloysius May " Charlie " Silver Spring, Maryland Congressional To some people, principles are the mainspring of life. To we of Fifty-Nine this will always be one of the distinguishing characteristics of Charlie. Steadfast in his beliefs, regardless of what others may say or do, Charhe can always be counted upon by his friends to do the right thing. From the never-say-die attitude which he displays on the athletic field to the ready grin with which he meets the problems of everyday life, Charlie has all the earmarks of the type of man most desired by our service and our nation. John Edmond Mantei " Gremlin " Mame, Michigan Congressional Good things come in small packages and John is one of the best for aggressiveness, for te- nacity, and for applying himself dihgently to tough situations. His drive and his ambition have lifted him above the crowd to become an excellent soccer player and an excellent student. Many larger men have fallen by the wayside in our stay here, while John ' s burning desire to make good has carried him through. He is a firm and loyal friend, a striver for perfection, and a hard taskmaster for those under him. He asks no more, however, than he has done him- self, but this is more than enough to chal- lenge others. 1% Gerald Barrie McDonald " Mac " Sackets Harbor, New York Senatorial After a year of studying at RPI, Mac entered the Academy. Due to the combination of this academic background and typical upstate New York ingenuity and shrewdness, he obtained high grades with a minimum of effort. This left time to develop his bridge game and to initiate the La Crosse Club. You will probably see Mac again when he buzzes you in his F-104. 136 William Lee McLain " Mac " Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania C ongressional " Mac " gained much recognition as a fine foot- ball player, but is most known in the feminine set as a rovin ' lover from back East. He is undoubtedly one of the most liked men in the Class of ' 59. He is at ease in any social gathering, and can always be counted on for a laugh. " Mac " has gained a fine record at the Academy, and his friends want to pronounce a " storm warning " to those Georgia " peaches " in late August when he and his red convertible invade Spence Air Base for pilot training. James Connell McMonigal " Mac " Berhn, Wisconsin Congressional " Mac, " as he is known by his classmates, has the distinction of being one of the first eleven men ever to walk a tour in Academy history. When " Mac " arrived at the Academy, he brought with him those qualities that many men take years to develop: a sense of humor, good judgment, maturity, and above all toler- ance and understanding of his fellow man. " Mac " has before him a long and fruitful ca- reer which should take him right to the top. Charles Howard Meier, Jr. " Cro " Lynbrook, New York CongressionaJ The desire for adventure brought this man to Colorado where his ingenuous character has always displayed his dedication to the American way of life. Pineville, Louisiana John Miller Melancon " Johnny " Melvin John Merz " Bro Moses " Congressional St. Louis, Missouri Congressicmal Johnny is a true son of the South with his soft drawl and easy smile. He could always be found at sporting events carrying " Mach I " on his fist. Johnny stood well militarily and aca- demically. He has many friends and will always be remembered for his drive and exceptional courage because no trial was too much for him. Although Johimy knew throughout his senior year that he would not receive a commission, he never let up. His example was of the highest caliber. In civilian Ufe Johnny can be expected to succeed and carry on the fine traditions he helped establish. Years ago this old man set out to see. If this world was what it ' s said to be. In 1955, upon arriving in old Denver town. The Academy took him in, but with a frown. So here it was that he found a home. Because the beer they served was all foam. To study diplomacy, he crossed the Rio Grande On soccer fields his elbow was in much demand To see the Army he jumped from planes. Now Chief of Staff is one of his aims. However, there will be no crying. If in fighters we find him flying. James Irwin Miholick " Jim " Honolulu, Hawaii Presidential Jim came to the Academy from one of our ter- ritories but he is now a full-fledged member, being from the 50th state, Hawaii. Jim, having been chairman of the Ring and Crest Com- mittee, was instrumental in designing the First Air Force Academy crest and class ring. Jim has been the Chaimian of the Engineering So- ciety ' s Mechanical Division and was one of the three originators of the Society. Jim has an excellent future in store for him. 137 I ( " » Craig Vernon Miller " CV " Humboldt, Iowa Congressional This likeable and personable favorite son from the com country ran the gamut during his hitch with the Fighting Fourth. Always high in academics and a top man in aptitude, " CV " was also a distinguished athlete. He lettered three years in golf and captained the team for two years. When his activities did not include throwing clubs or pumping pushups in England, " CV " could be seen escorting his future wife in their super deluxe ' 54 Ford. A loyal friend, it would be an honor to fly his wing. Donald William Miller " D.W. " Hamburg, New York Congressional Four years ago, " D.W. " grabbed his carpet bag and headed west in search of knowledge and adventure. On weekends, he usually could be found skiing, climbing some mountain, or dragging. A hard worker with a good sense of humor, " DW " should do well in the Air Force. Max Ivan Miller, Jr. " M-1 " Greensboro, North Carolina Senatorial Raised among the broad leaves of that fine North Carolina tobacco, " M-l ' s " sights were beginning to zero in on the target. He entered USAFA already well versed in the art of elec- tronics and has emerged as one of the school ' s top radio amateurs and the chief force behind the design and development of the Cadet Radio Club. Though not the largest cadet in the class, he evidenced himself to be one of the most aggressive ones on the athletic field. At the same time, he demonstrated his coolness and control by becoming one of the best shots of the USAFA Pistol Team. John Calvin Knox Milligan " Jack " Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Congressional With the temperament and skill of a tnie author, " Jack " has given four years of fruitful thought to the Academy. He has distinguished himself vidth his many written creations, his outstanding and outspoken character, and his distinctive philosophy on life. Always more ready for a laugh than a study session. Jack takes everything in stride, but leaves his mark on everyone who gets to know him. His rare combination of wit, originality, and amiability makes him an unforgettable classmate and friend. John Henry Miltner " Milt " Cadillac, Michigan 138 Back home. Milt spent winters skiing and summers swimming, sailing, and canoeing. The Academy tried to fit him to the " cadet mold, " but the lid wouldn ' t close all the way— probably because of skis. The Ski Team chose ol ' streamlined Milt as Captain thru 3 seasons of thrills, spills, and gruehng cross-country races. Deciding mountain-climbing was to mountains what sailing and canoeing were to water. Milt got the Mountaineering Club started. On the intellectual side. Milt spent much time and ef- fort on academics. Cadet Forum, flying, world traveling, and football managing. Jay Neely Mitchell " Mitch " Senatorial Artesia, New Mexico Congressional From his talk, it was always hard to tell if Mitch ' s favorite pastime was driving a tractor or demobilizing an opponent linesman in foot- ball. He did both well, but then that is char- acteristic of the " Plowboy. " Given any job, whether administering the Cadet Chorale or running a squadron, Mitch lent to it an en- thusiasm and spirit that could end nowhere but in success. These quaUties of drive and will- ingness to work, coupled with an inherent friendliness and understanding, are certain to lead Mitch to the top. Kent Montavon " Monty " Hobart, Indiana Congressional Kent came to the Academy with two years of background at Purdue University. An out- standing quarterback his Fourth Class year, from which his most notable accomplishment was the breaking of his nose, he has always done well in intramurals, once being Wing Champ in handball. He was an honor repre- sentative for four years and was a Group Com- mander during his First Class year. Always good for a laugh and easy to get along with, Kent was a very well liked person in the wing. After his graduation wedding, he will report to Te. as for pilot training. K Edwin Jones Montgomery, Jr. " Monty " Newtown, Pennsylvania Congressional Coming west, Monty decided to show people how to do things. And he proceeded to do just that in his four years, although at times his methods were a bit unorthodox. For example, his persuasive manner helped us get to Iowa. Having no trouble with a sidelight, academics, Ed leaves a record to be envied by any cadet; but this gave him time to be a success in extra- curricular activities also. To no one ' s surprise, Ed letl the outstanding fourth class summer training flight. Sincerity and work has made, and will continue to make, Monty a fine leader of men. Joseph D. Morgan, III. " Joe " Gainesville, Florida Congressional Raised in the sunshine of Florida, Joe typifies the warmth of the South with his smile and good nature. In his yeiir at the University of Florida, Joe became, and still is, enthralled with every phase of engineering. Lively, fond of fun, ancl at home wherever his is, Joe is never daunted by the trials of life. Consistency and the wilUngness to trade a few hours of sleep for a book on electronics, Joe is always reaching for more knowledge. With his win- ning manner and warm smile, Joe will make a fine officer. Michael Conlon Murphy " Mike " New York City, New York Congressional Mike came to the Academy from New York City and received the usual rude awakening. Al- though troubled with Academics throughout the four years, he nevertheless managed to make it through, turnouts and all. While here he distinguished himself on a Mexican vacation and was given a few days off privileges as a reward when he retumad to AGA. He suc- cumbed to the wiles of the female sex and will be married following Graduation to a very fine young lady. At this point it looks as though he has about all he could want. Patrick Louis Musmaker " Mus " Greenfield, Iowa Congressional The guy behind the plow from the South 40 of a city in Iowa spent most of his early years in the furrows of the com fields. Partymaker was a member of a notorious quartet of rabble rousers, sometimes known as the CWC Staff. Curly showed a personal interest in athletics during his stay at USAFA, centering mainly about the trampohne. Mus came to us from the State University of Iowa where he did re- sea rch on the development of powdered beer. Prove, Utah Robert Charles Oaks " Gimp " Senatorial This Mormon migrated to USAFA from the Great Salt Flats of Utah with a generous supply of desire, abiUty, and forcefulness— but young. And so he matured with the rest of the Class of 1959. Always ready and willing but never able to turn a fast buck, Bob ' s business ability was often smote by well-meant jibes about the stock market and automobile business. What he lacks in smart he makes up in talk, drive, and initiative and caimot help but make a successful Air Force Officer. 139 Lyn Douglas Oberdier " Obie " Toledo, Ohio Congressional Coming straight from high school, Obie ' s liberal endowment of brain-power allowed him ample time to participate in his favorite sport— sack- ing out. Lyn ' s good nature and friendly smile were always seen and helped him and others to weather the program. A natural teacher, he was good at helping others through such things as graded reviews. A pre-season accident took him off the wrestUng team and let him take up the position of manager after a successful freshman season. Always patient, natural, and good-natured, Lyn will be a good, steady Air Force officer. John Arthur Olson " Buzz " Helena, Montana Regular Component Being an ex-EM, Buzz discovered the best way to get ahead in the Air Force was to start at the top and work his way up. Therefore, he came to the Academy. Besides picking up a debatable amount of knowledge, his navi- gator ' s wings, and those coveted bars. Buzz found the woman of his life while at the Academy. Like most of us. Buzz will carry from Aluminum U. the fond memories of Den- ver and its many memorable establishments. Buzz will leave his mark on the Academy as two time Squadron Commander and an ex- cellent intramural and bridge player. Norris O. Olson " Ole " Brocket, North Dakota Senatorial The weapons system method of development in modem mihtary technology falk short of nature ' s knack of packing maximum fight into minimum space such as all who know him find in Ole. It is inconceivable to us that a cadet with such a fine mind in the classroom and in the laboratory of human experience can fail to comprehend the odds on the athletic field such as Ole ' s seems to have done. Excelled aca- demically, mihtarily, athletically and personali- ty wise. James Francis O ' Neil " Ace " Flushing, New York Congressional Although a true son of Erin, Ace ' s easy manner does not allow his temper to be easily aroused. He found out early in his cadet life the sane approach to the grind, and was never dismayed by any situation, except perhaps the contention that there is any other place to compare with his beloved New York. Possessing that desirable quaUty of being smart, yet not overly ambitious. Ace will succeed in any aspect of his Air Force career. Wilham Edward Page, Jr. " Oink " Binghampton, New York Congressional The Oink from Bimmington was a member of that notorious quartet of rabble rousers some- times known as the CWC staff. However, it must be admitted by the other three-fourths of the gang that Bill was the only one to find a lifetime companion— a compliment to his steadi- ness, and testimony to the fact that he failed in the mission of the group. Oink ' s most not- able achievement was in the field of rodent extermination where he was r esponsible for the development of the Rodenbeeker. Brian Thomas Parker " Parks " Baltimore, Maryland Congressional From the Terrapins of Maryland, to the Fal- cons of USAFA, and soon to the tigers of the Air Force, Brian has won for himself a warm spot in the hearts of his friends. Brian will long be remembered for his comment to the Aero Dept., " Ah so, you are surprised I speak your language. " Outstanding in academics ( A Pubhc Affairs major), a fine athlete (a letterman in cross country and track) and having a burning desire to do his duty to the utmost, Brian will do an outstanding job as a career officer in the service of his country. 140 lH| Senataiil lopmnti ilwtii: can fail ii Msici lWaa- Richard Leldon Penn, Jr. " RX.

Roger Holt Peterson " Pete " Indianola, Iowa Senatorial Burbank, California Although Pete was bom and raised in Iowa, he didn ' t hesitate a minute to head west when he heard about the new Air Force Academy. With two years of college under his belt, the aca- demic program was just a necessary evil to be put up with until time to go to pilot training. The Ski Club was his main extra curricular interest, where he was elected as a club officer for two years. The big determing factor in his future assignments will be how close he can wrangle his way to the ski slopes. olIieFit 11 a wan I the An ; (APiliit Itemaiii alM Brian wl ittfiitlt Wayne Creekmore Pittman, Jr. " Pitt " Tomnolan, Mississippi Senatorial Proud of two things, i. e. he WAS a Southerner and he WAS NOT a feather merchant.

Pollard " Poobs " Odessa, Texas Congressional Bom in Missouri on 11 December 1937. Raised in Texas. Stimibled into the Academy a year early. Stuck New Cadet Training out because he couldn ' t find time to find out how to resign. He has his share of women troubles, demerits, class II ' s, weekends, statements of charges, pulled wisdom teeth, and days in the hospital. As a navigator, he is remembered for a 45 NM C.E., ( Day Cel Grid aided by doppler radar, three SAC observers and a B-52E ) . His literary skill may be demonstarted by the " Held " report which explained away an inadvertant 29 hour leave extension. David Joe Phillips " Tons of Fun " Congressional Straight from the beaches of Southern Cali- fornia this " little feller " sailed his boat to Denver and began his career. Outstanding line- man in the Cotton Bowl he was also outstanding around CWC, usually way out standing. " Tons of Fun " served a short tour of duty with the Army, receiving his Jump Wings and dis- tinguishing himself at the daily Beer Call. " Tons of Fun " distinguished himself for his capacity to absorb the wraths from above brought on by his squadron. Leo Leslie Prescott, Jr. " Leo " Kinston, North Carolina Congressional After dragging himself away from his tried and true still in the Hills of Carolina, Leo decided to give the thin air of Colorado a whirl. Be- tween moaning about losing his southern accent and lack of sack time, Leo managed to excel in getting the most for his study time. Although quiet in appearance, he could talk your leg off if you gave him a chance. A good athlete, not only with the mug, but also a hot rod skier, good leader and friend. 141 m V t „.--- Norman Patrick Quigley " Quig " Buhl, Idaho Senatorial Coming from the Land of Potatoes, Quig brought with him a keen understanding of people. But more important than the under- standing was the interest that he always showed in people with their problems. Never confusing spirit with noise, Quig was always ready to do a task well without telling the entire dormitory what he was doing. Never pugnacious but also never pushable, Quig knows where he wants to go and he is on his way already. Michael Peter Reardon " Mi ke " North Scituate, Massachusetts Congressional Like his Fifty-Niner predecessors of a century ago Mike came to Colorado in search of a dream. While spending four years in the pad looking for it, he became the most rested man in our class. His waking hours were feverishly spent in trying to beat, change, or forget the " system. " This he accomplished most suc- cessfully by helping to establish that archfoe of tyranny the " syndicate. " Mike has certainly left enduring marks on the face of the Acade- my. There is no doubt that the Air Force too, wiU soon feel and benefit from his many abilities. James McKee Reed " }im " Ann Arbor, Michigan Congressional Coming to the Academy straight out of an Aim Arbor High School didn ' t phase Jim at all. He always seemed to have pro points to bum. Not only did he bum up the academic field, but he also found time to make his voice a familiar one in the press box at Academy football games. Athletically speaking, Jim was considered the indispensable manager of the gymnastics team. His literary efforts brought out anotlier of his many varied talents and his short stories and ramblings were familiar to everyone in the TALON and the DODO. John Michael Reeves " Precious " St. Louis, Missouri Congressional The sense of humor and the quick verbal cut of this redheaded tennis wonder from the asphalt jungles lightened many a bull-session and quieted many a griper. In four years we saw many things develop in, and through Johnnie— from that ideal scandal sheet, the DODO, to a knowledgeable driving interest in four-banger sports cars. His inexhaustable ap- petites both on campus ( book-a-night ) and off campus (any party) led him to be the bane of both the Academic Departments and the local talent. He finished his tour in good standing 1 AO with the former, at least, and is headed for a fine career. LfLmmM James Mauran Rhodes, Jr. " Jim " Hawaii Presidential That first meal doolie summer of ' 55, I peaked and saw a handsome young man across the table from me. He looked rather silly at the time, trying to squeeze another wrinkle into liis chin. Many wrinkles and bridge games later, Jim took the award for History on Gradu- ation. His quick mind and ability to react made many a fencing opponent remember with chagrin the lad with an epee. Jim ' s desire to always do an outstanding job in all his en- deavors, whether studying, fencing, or partying, will stand him in good stead throughout his Air Force career. David Keith Richart " D.K. " Richmond, Virginia Congressional " D.K. " received a Congressional Appointment from the Third District in Virginia. From the start to the finish there was a pitched battle with the Head Shed and the P.T. Department. His activities included participation in the Chess Club, Polaris, Contrails, and the Model Engineering Club. He achieved a first by gaining authorization for a group to visit West Point for the purpose of studying operational procedures of the model railroad club there. After receiving a second set of wings, he hopes to go bomber, heavy. Sherwood Andrew Richers " Andy " Bay Qty, Texas Congressional He was bom in Texas, raised on a ranch and never thought of anything but cows until he met a girl, and until he met an aeroplane that was his life. Now all he thinks of are aeroplanes and rockets. Even with this type of love he was never one to study much. His afternoons and evenings are usually spent playing cards, sacking, dating, or reading. His love of flying will do him well in the Air Force. Roscoe Russell Roberts, III " Sonny " Fairbom, Ohio Regular Component Raised among the hustle of the strange city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, " Sonny " was well ac- customed to living and working in the unusual environment of a large-scale development when he entered the Academy. Remembered at USAFA most by his three R ' s fixed on his car- toons in the TALON, his most devoted effort as the Art Editor for two and one-half years was the development of the Academy ' s maga- zine into a professional quality publication. Eager to fly fighters and to become a part of the Tactical Air Command, Sonny looked for- ward to graduation and pilot training. Charles Stewart Rodgers " Charlie " Saint Paul, Minnesota Congressional Charlie was bom and raised in St. Paul, Minn., home of Paul Bunyan, as can be seen by look- ing at him. One of our best football players, Charlie ' s big problem " faces " him. Since his operation, we all know Charlie will be a great success in the Air Force. Also, much will be expected of Charlie as a result of his academic wizardry. Edwin Lee Rosane " Eddie " Pasco, Washington Congressional From out of the Great Northwest came a lad whose only military background had been nine- teen months in the Army Reserve. Willing to do anything to get out from under the influence of the Army, Eddie came to the old AFA. Having very little trouble with academics, Eddie had plenty of time for athletics in which he won five varsity letters in football and base- ball. His keen competitive spirit should give Eddie a fine start on a long and successful Air Force career. Craig Otis Schaum " CO. " Willmar, Minnesota Congressional A man held in high esteem by all, Craig is a dedicated, congenial fellow with an ever ready encouraging, cheery word. Unfortimately, he came out second best in his battle with the fairer sex. An ardent dog lover, Craig man- aged to train his pet " Teddy-mongrel " to pro- tect his domicile from the invasion of those terrors of the AOC shack, and to accept as food only a single delicacy— popcom. Craig has managed to become one of the top men of his class and is assured of being a really successful Air Force officer. Roger Edwin Schemenaur Bangor, Michigan Congressional Roger was bom in Illinois and spent two years at Western Michigan University before entering the Academy. Athletically inclined, Roger made a good showing for himself for four years on the Gymnastic team. He has had one ambition since he came to the Academy and that is to graduate. 143 ■■■ ' - fsa ■- Karl William Schmidt " Kraut " Havertown, Pennsylvania Bom in the quaint city of Bethlehem, ( Pennsyl- vania, not tile old country), and raised in various states from Indiana to New Jersey, Kraut decided at an early age that his principal aim in life was to see the world. After running away from home several times starting at the tender age of three, he decidetl that this in- clination to roam, aided by a driving desire to be a pilot, could more readily be realized by becoming a career " fly boy " for Uncle Sam. Senatorial Walter Edgar Schmidt " Wally " Milwaukee, Wisconsin Reserve Component The lack of a high school diploma made Wally a " dark horse " from the start, but his high grades and fine bearing soon dispelled any doubts about his future. A good athlete, al- though seldom inclined to demonstrate it, Wally ' s main characteristics were a keen, subtle sense of humor, and the ability to work long hours on anything but academics. Highly in- dividuaUstic from the start, his combination of rugged determination and rare ability will see him through a long and successful Air Force career. Dennis Ray See " Dennie " Uniontown, Kentucky Although not outstanding in all fields, Dennie has proven his abilities in completing his acade- my tour without any difficulty and ending up with a beautiful bride. St. Louis University proved to be the starting place for his en- deavors in higher education and romance. Dennie gets along well with everybody he comes in contact with because of his winning personality and his " golden " smile. Anthony William Seizys " Tony " Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Congressional Shedding his " Duck Tail, " Tony came west from the factories of Philly to the heights of the Rockies to start his family ' s military tradi- tion. Never a one to sweat the course, he got by the rigors of academics by a little cramming in the right places. A reliable sort, Tony worked hard when there was a job to do and relaxed in the typical cadet fashion when tliere was none. His willingness to work and his understanding patience should tnirry him through the future, even though he wants to desert his fighter pals for SAC. 144 Jonathan Stickley Shafer " Duck " Lake Forest, Illinois Congressional Raised in Lake Forest, Illinois, Jon represented his state well as a cadet. As a member of the Academy ' s varsity gymnastics team, Jon de- veloped into one of the better parallel-bar specialists in the country. Art is one of Jon ' s favorite hobbies. His artistic talents contributed significantly to the design of the Class of 1959 ' s ring. As a cadet Jon has displayed a serious nature tempered with a good sense of humor which along with his reliability, maturity, and sound judgment should serve him well during his service career. Jon Grant Shaffer " Shaf " Lebanon, Ohio Presidential Lord God of trajectory and blast . . . Appear now among the parliaments of conquerors and give instructions to their schemes: Measure out new liberties so none shall suffer for his fa- ther ' s color or the creed of his choice: Post proofs that brotherhood is not so wild a dream as those who profit by postponing it pretend: Sit at the treaty tables and convoy the hopes of little peoples thru expected straights. And press into the final seal a sign that peace will come for longer than posterities can see ahead. That man unto his fellow man shall be a friend forever. . % David R. Shearin " Doc " Chattanooga, Tennessee Congressional Down in tlie hills of Tennessee, Doc tried this flying game and hasn ' t been really happy on the ground since. When the Academy opened, the tall hillbilly put on shoes and came west. At the Academy he maintained a middle of the road policy with little difficidty and tried al- most everything at least once. As time passed Doc became accustomed to the shoes, but not to the multi-engine aircraft in which he flew. As a member of the old school of fighter pilots, he leaves the Academy hoping for a long and enjoyable career in the Air Force. Arthur Kenneth Shumate " Pappy " St. Cloud, Florida Congressional The oldest living grad. Robert Harold Siteman " Noah " Los Angeles, California Congressional The fastest gun in the West and the rifle team and the Academy ' s first AU-American. In between punching holes in paper targets, and punching holes in the upper five percent of the academic curve, it is a wonder that Noah isn ' t punching out paper doUs by now. An out- standing scholar and a determined leader, Noah is perhaps one of the more obvious candidates to replace the stars on his sleeve by stars on his shoulders at some date in the near future. A ready smile and a hearty laugh even when the joke is on him characterize an un- forgettable guy. Waupaca, Wisconsin Jimmie Lee Smith " Smily " Kenneth R. Smith " Smitty " Congressional North Hollywood, California Smily came from Wisconsin to take his place in the Class of ' 59 more a man of the world than a Wisconsinite, for he was equally at home in an orange grove in Florida, on a ski slope in the Rockies, or enjoying the night life of Europe ' s best. Always ready for a good time, Smily was also diligent from academics to " intra murder " and took everything in stride, including the hazing about the condition of the upper surface of his cranium with the quiet goodnaturedness that won the nickname his classmates will always think of as only " SMILY " SMITH ' S, Class of 1959. Smitty came to the Academy innocent of Acade- my life, but he eventually adapted. He was known for his 4th class after-taps activities. As a 2nd classman. Ken, with his crutches, cast or brace, was known as the " Polio Kid. " He excelled in Gymnastics, did well in the classroom, and couldn ' t find his way to the dining hall as a navigator. His main interests are athletics, women, and music. He desires to become the best as a fighter pilot, and to serve his country in his career as an Air Force officer. Philip Roland Smothermon " PhW Congressional Sugar City, Colorado Senatorial His birth in Rocky Ford, Colorado, and a tour at Colorado State University may have made Phil more prone to call the Academy " Home " than most. A serious individual with few Academic worries he found his time profitably spent in learning the inner workings and hidden mechanisms of the military. A sincere approach to the job at hand made possible a successful completion of a cadet life and a solid founda- tion for his Air Force career. 145 ?T - Thomas Patrick Stack " Stacker " Castro Valley, California Congressional The man in the grey flannel trousers was a members of a famous quartet of rabble rousers commonly known as the CWC staff. Tom was captain of the gymnastics team and was an ex- cellent engineer on the London Express. Com- ing to us from the University of Arizona, he had difficulty at first with wearing shoes, but quickly overcame his earlier environment. " Late for Taps Tom " excelled in public relations but had his share of troubles, too. He hated to leave anything half-finished, a quality which was useful in his duties as Squadron Operation Officer of Sixth Squadron. Samuel Dickson Starrett " Strumps " Indianapolis, Indiana Congressional " He was aware that there could be no honor and yet had honor; he knew the sophistry of courage and yet was brave. " John Robert Stevens " John " Niagara Falk, New York Congressional John came straight to the Academy from high school with the ambition to be an officer in the Air Force. A First Squadron man, John helped his Squadron to excel in intramurals, as well as to succeed in academics and military training. Although John was a quiet fellow, he neverthe- less became known and liked by his classmates. His only close shave was a brief encounter with the Department of Flying Training. Other- wise, academics were navigated without too much trouble. At this point it looks at though John has done extremely well in achieving his High School ambition. Brock Tourville Strom " Slim " Ironwood, Michigan Congressional At six feet, 217 lbs.. Brock rather liked the name Slim, and he was the only one who took much stock in it. There were a lot of people who took stock in Slim, though. A little older, maybe a lot wiser. Brock took in everything, figured it out the way he saw it, and gave his opinion— when somebody needed it. William David Telford " Bill " Brooklyn, New York Reserve Component Born and raised in Brooklyn, Bill had looked forward to the Air Force Academy long be- fore it was built. With two years of engineering college behind him, the first two years at the Academy were relatively easy, from an aca- demic viewpoint. Bill was voted to the Dance Committee in his Fourth Class year and has been an active member ever since, being chair- man the last three years. Rated high in aptitude among his classmates, he is a fine choice for a well-rounded and dedicated Air Force Officer. Eugene Andrew Thomas " Air Power " New Orleans, Louisiana Congressional " Air Power " was named for his greatest love. He is a man of as many facets and attributes as interests, which include books, music, women, and green things. An outstanding scholar, " Air Power " has combined mathematical wizardry with extra courses in literature. Best known for his many conquests in the literary world, a casual analysis wiU find his writings among the best in the Wing. Air Power does his best at everything as indicated by the fact that he graduates near the top of his class with a cor- vette and a fine career awaiting him. 146 Kenneth Raymond Thompson " Thumper " Bay Shore, L.I., New York Congressional " Thumper " : don ' t ask where it came from, but that ' s what we called him. It was a full four years— there was Europe and the Far East- there were good times and hard times. But with the continent of Long Island backing him up, he had no fear, and so this Blue Comforter man finished his USAFA career. A fighter jock deep down, we ' ll see if SAC causes a frown. Laurence Joseph Thomson " Lucky Linus " Billings, Montana Senatorial Wanted for conning U.S. Government into ac- cepting him as a cadet. Also wanted for suc- cessful escape from terrors of civilian life. One distinguishing characteristic is his highly ir- regular arm swing. Harold Wade Todd " Pete " Washington, D.C. District Commissioners One of Pete ' s faults (a complete list of which will be furnished upon request by any one of his whole host of friends) has always been a deep impatience to get out into the operational Air Force, a motivation which has often been a consolation during the " Dark Ages. " In aca- demics, always passing, seldom outstanding (ex- cept in his love of languages, both his own and various foreign tongues); in athletics, member of the team and never the star; and surpassed by few in his abiding desire to participate in the Air Force mission. William Morgan Toney " Bill " El Dorado, Arkansas Senatorial Straight from High School, Bill came to a new Academy, a new way of hfe, and a new chal- lenge. Bill was known for his extremely dihgent work in establishing new activities and his con- tinued participation and support of the Hunting Club. With Bill something new was something untried and he never left a stone unturned. As in the past and as it will be in the future, the challenge was met. Richard Eugene Tracey " Dick " Washington, Ohio Congressional Dick is very interested in athletics as is evi- dent from the fact that he lettered in baseball, basketball, and football in High School as well as being a lifeguard. He lettered in diving and soccer at the Academy. He literally loves all sports . He went to the University of Cincinnati for one year, where he studied Aeronautical Engineering and became a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. He was an academic officer at the Academy for three years, and this was his main interest and greatest pride. Dick hopes to obtain an Astronautic or Aeronautical degree. McCook, Nebraska Richard Lynn Trail " Dusty " Congressional They called him Dusty, for Trail was his name. He hailed from Nebraska, where fanning was his game. His main goal in life is to do nothing but fly. But only as a fighter pilot, making holes in the sky. He wrote to his girl, his love never failed. But on Aero ' s shaft, he was nearly impaled. A fightin ' falcon each and every day, A mighty good officer is on his way. 147 Houston, Texas John Winfield Ulmer, Jr. Senatorial Bom and raised in Texas and always willing to back his native state. He became a solid Air Force backer after his first airplane ride over Galveston Bay in which he became deathly sick. Since then, the T-29 still makes him woozy but a determination to fly allowed him to get his navigator ' s wings and will allow him to finish flying school. He has a dedication to the Air Force mission and will probably spend most of his career in SAC. James Coy Vance " Jim " Bazine, Kansas Congressional Jim got plenty of schooling in moving for his Air Force career by attending eight different schools prior to enrolling in the Academy. He didn ' t let academics stands in way of extra- curricular activities and learning about his pro- fession. Jim likes anything that flies and has on occasion even brought a plane home with him. A desire to be a good leader and to insure that the Academy turns out professional officers has kept Jim busy and at times deficient. He is looking forward to a long career in blue but certaiiUy not as an aeronautical engineer. Eugene Larry Vosika " Vos Bellevue, Nebraska Senatorial Leaving behind a couple of colleges, Vos came back to the service he was raised in by way of the Academy. Always hard-working, con- scientious, and ready for a little fun, he marked himself as a leader from the first day of his Fourth Class year. After taking Europe and the Far East by storm, Vos let his defenses down and an Oregon model took over. How- ever, this state of affairs did not cause him to deviate from his desire to be among the finest in the Air Force, and along this road he has already gone a long way. James Edward Warren " Earl " BIythe, California Congressional The desert country where he was raised was one of his great loves, the other being football games. Earl was known to his mates by many names such as Jim, Henry, and Buck. In aca- demics, as in most things, he was among the average. For the future he hopes to become the only ' Tjlind " fighter pilot in USAF. As it has been here, with a httle luck he ' ll endure. Albert Lee Waters " Al " Bridgeville, Delaware Reserve Component Easy going and ready of wit best describe Al, who came to us four years ago from the Dela- ware National Guard. An excellent bridge player, Al never let such distracting influences as academics interfere with his game. His ability to remain calm and collected under any circumstance will undoubtedly be one of his greatest assets throughout his career as an officer in the United States Air Force. James Robert Weaver " Doodles " Lima, Ohio Congressional A man of many interests, Jim found the Acade- my a challenge. As in everything, he tackled these enthusiastically and succeeded in a big way. He enjoys rifle, tennis, intramurals, and his diversified record collection. Always an in- stigator of bull-sessions. Doodles can argue with the best of them and usually win. His sense of humor and high degree of leadership will surely help him in the future as they have in the past in gaining the respect of everyone. Marriage and pilot training are the next challenges, and we are sure he will succeed in these, too. 148 - ' ■ ■fs?s?sw James Clayton Welch " Jim " Spee dwell, Tennessee Congressional Jim, not completely giving up his loyalty to Confederate Gray, donned Rocky Mountain Blue directly from high school. It was on the advice of his older brother, a Navy man, that he decided to become an Air Force flyer. He has planned to go into the military ever since he witnessed the civilian administration of his kindergarten. If he survives his love for sports cars, he plans on becoming a thirty-year man. James Earle West " Jim " Granite City, Illinois Congressional Coming from a small steel town in the midwest, tim found himself well into the 4th Class year lefore the smoke cleared from his eyes. Aca- demically he could have ranked high in his class had he only been able to figure out what was going on. However, this flatlander quickly took to the ways of the West and soon joined the ranks of the weekend ski bums. In more ways than one snow can be considered the source of many enjoyable experiences for him. Fundamentally quiet and reserved, he is shoot- ing for a career in fighter operations. Hubert Giles Wideman, II " Hugie " Perrysburg, Ohio Congressional ZiemUch gut gebaut, pfiffig und lebenslustig, das ist " Fritz. " Wer ihn kennt weiss, dass seine Interessen nur in seiner zukuenftigen Karriere liegen. Er hatte eine sonnige Jugend und seine Familie verwoehnte ihn so sehr, dass es ihm nicht gerade leicht viel, sich in der Akademie unterzuordner, und die Eflichten und Gesetze genau zu nehmen. Kameradschafthch- keit und sein frischer Humor macht ihn bei seinen Mitschuelem beliebt und mit seiner natuerlichen Art hat er alle Voraussetzungen in der U.S.A.F. Karriere zu machen un die U.S.A.F. zu repraesentieren. Robert Lyons Wilder " Ho " Antwerp, New York Congressional While known to all as an engine addict, only Lyons ' closest fields realized that he got as much horsepower out of life as he got out of his Thunderbird. Boundless energy answering the call of the ambition to succeed make him an outstanding man to work with. Not without his academic difficulties, it has been by dili- gent application that he may call any man an equal. We, his friends, know that he has what it takes to succeed wherever chance may lead him and we look forward eagerly to the day when he fulfills the promise that is inside of him. Robert Flak Williams " Flak " Massillon, Ohio Congressional Flak was a buckeye and proud of it, as evi- denced by the towel in his laundry bin marked property of O.S.U. Electronically inclined, Flak filled his room with gadgets such as radio, hi-fi, and T.V. He excelled in sports and pre- sented the picture of the cool, unemotional competitor. His interest in others was evi- denced by the fact that he cheerfully provided reading material for fellow cadets. He is a credit to Ohio, the Academy, and will be to the Air Force. Charles Peters Winters " AbduV St. Paul, Minnesota Congressional Our diplomat to the Middle East often aided the world economy through the medium of travelers checks. Abdul, later re-named " bo- peep " by an admirer traveled from CWC to Hong Kong with the same trusting philosophy, is an ardent advocate of the beauties of Minne- sota, and often described his state with the enthusiasm of a Texan. Pete was perhaps best known for his Tiger Spirit and his friendly dis- position, which, when rolled into one, was an amazing and fascinating thing for all to behold. 149 lirWin ltti ' a Dean Chase Wood " Woody " Newbiuy, Massachusetts Army Jackson, Tennessee Frederick Banks Wynn " Early " Senatorial Bom an Easterner, but taking Greeley ' s ad- vice. Woody came west to get in on the ground floor. After flirting with disaster in the form of Fourth Class Customs his first year, and the horrors of academics his last three, he finally made it. Skeet, skiing, and collecting U.S. dollars were his favorite sports, although the last mentioned suffered from neglect most of the time. Despite all, the Air Force finally emerged as the focal point of his interests and when last seen, he was headed in that direction. From the land of grits to the climate capital was an easy adaptation for Early. With shining spirit and a ready humor, he applied himself equally well in academics, in activities and in sports. His easy manner won him many friends, but lost the constant fight with the blue mag- net. His drive and ability will guarantee him full success in the Air Force. Charles D. Zaleski " skr Morgantown, West Virginia Congressional A tall, slim, dashing young man— the old cavalry type was Charles. His father ' s old West Virginia miUtary home life formed early the basis for his life ' s ambition— a military ca- reer. Thus his coming to the Air Force Acade- my was the culmination of his dreams, and we all knew he hated to graduate. . 150 Thaf s the only way he can survive for this singular moment. 151 siss sw sa • Class of 1960 -41 ' 1 .

Equally, there is nothing so mighty or so marvellous that the wonder it evokes does not tend to diminish in time. Take first the pure and un- dimmed lustre of the sky and all that it enshrines: the stars that roam across its surface, the moon and the sur- passing splendor of the sunlight. If all these s ights were now displayed to mortal view for the first time by a swift unforeseen revelation, what miracle could be recounted greater than this ? What would men before the revelation have been less prone to conceive as possible? Nothing, surely. So marvellous would have been that sight a sight which no one now, you will admit, thinks worthy of an upward glance into the luminous regions of the sky. So has satiety blunted the appetite of our eyes. Desist, there- fore, from thrusting out reasoning from your mind because of its disconcerting novelty. Weigh it, rather, with dis- cerning judgment. Then, if it seems to you true, give in. If it is false, gird yourself to oppose it.

On January 25th, commercial aviation in America took a giant step forward when American Airlines introduced the first commercial jet service across the U.S.A. Since that historic day, this service has been the fastest growing as well as the fastest going. Now American offers jet or jet-prop service to most of the large cities across the U.S.A. In addition to providing finer and far faster air transportation, American ' s rapidly expanding jet fleet is making a vital contribution to the total airpower of the nation by helping to expand the speed, range and capacity of the Civil Reserve Air Fleet.

To you, they could represent the difference between life and death. Their job: to make missiles miss. Active countermeasures may jam the radar which guides a missile. Or blind its electronic eyes. Or deflect it from its course. Or help seek it out and destroy it — miles from its target. They Cannot Wait If an attack ever comes, there are only minutes in which to act. ITT is one of the companies holding the stop watch. More than 15 years ago, in fact, the Department of Defense anticipated mis- sile warfare and assigned the ITT System to the development of countermeasures. Since then, many have been perfected. Others are now being tested. Still others are being rushed to completion. Some are active countermeasures. Others are passive countermeasures, which record hostile electronic activities. Hundreds of ITT scientists and tech- nicians, specialists in fields such as physics, astronautics, electronics, chem- istry and metallurgy, are devoting their energiets to the job. At their disposal are the facilities of 101 growing research and manufactur- ing plants. Many Other Big Jobs Countermeasure development is one of the many areas in which ITT is engaged for the defense of the United States. Guiding, controlling and testing mis- siles — to defend, to retaliate — is another vital area of activity. Still another is the creation of a split-second global communications system for the Strate- gic Air Command. And the develop- ment of earth satellites is another. ITT has the senior part in planning the modernization and extension of the Air Force ' s global communications con- cept called AIRCOM .The all-important job of operating and maintaining the DEW Line, our Distant Early Warning radar network in the Arctic, is also an ITT assignment. Countermeasures Come First The potentiality of missile warfare is a fact we must face squarely, realistically and quickly. Countermeasures must be on call.

Advance knowledge on the project indicates how a boost-glide vehicle can operate from the outer fringes of the atmosphere where it can maneuver and be recovered undamaged. Studies show that by varying the original rocket boost, and thus the velocity, and with the control available to the pilot, the Djma-Soar aircraft can circumnavigate the earth, followed by a normal and controlled landing. Boeing Airplane Company, one of the competing companies for the development contract for the complete boost-glide system, has delegated to RCA the responsibility for the development of important electronic components of Dyna-Soar.

ONE OF A SERIES: THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY of Sperry ' s Aeronautical Equipment Division In 1912 Lawrence Sperry flew the first airplane to be equipped with automatic flight controls. Since then the Aeronauti- cal Equipment Division of Sperry has pioneered many significant " firsts " to make commercial aviation more practi- cal and efficient . . . and military aviation more effective. Back when the first cross-country and transoceanic routes were being estab- lished, Sperry Gyropilots were providing smooth, automatically-controlled flights. Today, flight control systems and instru- ments specially designed for jets are giving pilots precise control of their air- craft at speeds approaching that of sound — assuring passenger comfort and on- time arrivals. From take-off to touchdown, modern Sperry instruments are guiding the pilot, both military and civil . . . precise com- passes or radio aids pointing the way, others displaying flight attitude, with still others monitoring engine performance.

NEWS IS HAPPENING AT NORTHROP u NEW USAF-NORTHROPT-38 TALON- FIRST TRAINER THAT ANSWERS THE NEEDS OF SPACE AGE AIRMEN Test pilots use the word " clean " to describe the T-38 ' s performance. After exhaustive tests, their reports praise its low- and high-speed flight handling characteristics. They find the new trainer meets and exceeds all the performance indicated and assured by extensive wind tunnel tests. They appreciate its twin-jet safety -its all- weather dependability. The T-38 Talon fills a vital requirement of the Air Training Command. It is a lightweight, low-cost aircraft in which our new generation of space age airmen can safely master the art of supersonic flight. The T-38 is the first of a new Northrop family of eco- nomical, manned aircraft for the space age. The second, joining the T-38 for the Free World, is the N-156F- the Freedom Fighter (shown at the right). This multi- purpose weapon system is the first American fighter that has been designed especially to fit the defense needs of our allied nations. The T-38 Talon and the N-156F Freedom Fighter are both flying today.

A guard rail completely surrounds the passengers in the Ford Family of Fine Cars — others leave you exposed Our body frames are built with guard rails. They curve out and around the seats, forming a protective barrier of structural steel. This is true of our Ford, Edsel, and Mercury. Guard rails also protect the passengers in the unitized bodies used in our Thunderbird, Lincoln, and Continental. Two other safety features offer protection in case of accident. Our recessed three-spoke steering wheel is designed to catch the driver in its cushioning arms. Our safety door latches reduce the possibility of doors opening upon impact. Many extra body welds in our cars mean fewer shakes and rattles. There are over 200 more body welds, for instance, in the Ford Galaxie than are found in comparable cars made by other companies. Another reason for the silence of the ride in the Ford Family of Fine Cars is the extra sound insulation. We use up to 20% more than other manufacturers use in comparable cars. For example, in the Mercury ' s roof alone, we use 4.6 pounds of insulation. Our engine hoods are different from most others. We make them with double walls instead of single walls. This extra rigidity eliminates the fluttering that is so disconcerting at highway speeds. The paint we use is a special baked-on enamel, not merely rubbed-down lacquer. It is extremely durable. Even air rifle pellets have failed to chip the surface.

TEMCO MISSILES AIRCRAFT 411 DOUBLE DIAGNOSIS TO PREVENT " HEART DISEASE ' ' ..BY THE B H JiTtil: ANALYZER Two of the most important factors that affect jet engine life, efficiency, and safe operation are Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) and Engine Speed (RPM). Excess heat will reduce " bucket " life as much as 50% and low EGT materially reduces efficiency and thrust. Any of such conditions will make operation of the aircraft both costly and dangerous. The J ETC A L Analyzer predetermines accuracy of the EGT and (interrelatedly) Tachometer systems and isolates errors if they exist. The JETCAL ANALYZES JET ENGINES 10 WAYS: 1) The Jetcal Analyzer functionally tests EGT thermocouple circuit of a jet aircraft or pUotless aircraft missile for error without running the engine or disconnecting any wir- ing. GuAKANTEED AccuKACY is ±4°C. at en- gine test temperature. 2) Checks individual thermocouples " on the bench " before placement in parallel harness. 3) Checks thermocouples within the harness for continuity. 4) Checks thermocouples and paralleling harness for accuracy. 5) Checks resistance of the Exhaust Gas Temperature system. 6) Checks insulation of the EGT circuit for shorts to ground and for shorts between leads. 7) Checks EGT Indicators (in or out of the aircraft). S) Checks EGT system with engine removed from aircraft (in production line or overhaul shop). 9) Reads jet engine speed while the engine is running with a guaranteed accuracy of ±0.1% in the range of 0-110% RPM. Additionally, the Takcal circuit can- be used to trouble shoot and isolate errors in the aircraft tachom- eter system. 10) Jetcal Analyzer enables engine adjust- ment to proper relationship between engine temperature and engine RPM for maximum thrust and efficiency during engine run (Tab- bing or Micing).
