We have learned through our associations with him that there are many subcutaneous jualities for which we admire him, for he is a cheerful giver, a decidedly worthwhile companion, and a good thinker. " Sloop " appears to have a great capacity for litera- ture. It is claimed that he cut his teeth on a book. Recently, however, it has been rumored that a great change has come into his life. He no longer seeks the literature of the great sages, but reads more fer- vently the literature contained in a passionate-hued envelope that arrives at the Academy with uninter- rupted regularity. Berdine has confined his activities to the crew and we have often gazed upon his stoic countenance as it swayed to the rhythmic call of the coxswain. u His life was gentle, and the elements So mix ' d in him, that Nature might stand up And say to all the world, " This was a man!

On the cinder path his opponents have bowed down to him in great numbers and mar- veled at the fleet-footed wonder. He has given much to his Alma Mater by his untiring efforts in baseball, basketball, track, and football.

" The line above expresses George Carl Carlstedt, — faithful son of the true Andrew Gump. Carlstedt arrived in our midst like a tornado, and he has kept things going ever since with his subtle wit and amiable disposition. He has shown a consistency (if character and dogged determination to stand by his convictions. " Andy " stands high in the records of the Academy as a scholar and as a staunch supporter of the various activities in which the class has been interested. He turned out for football, full of pep and ambition, but an unfortunate accident on our " Alpine " gridiron deprived the squad of worthy material. The members of the crew have not forgotten him and his promises of only " fifty strokes more. " As circulation manager of the Tide Rips he has endeavored to confer upon suffering mankind this priceless publication. " Andy " has not confided in us as to his affairs with the " weaker sex, " but he is not immune from their wiles, for have we not seen him atop the casemates, his manly form outlined by a mellow moon, as he whispered sweet nothings into the attentive ear of some other cadet ' s girl i Atidy " ; " Gump " " I cannot check my girlish blush.

Paul Wcidncr Collins, or " Collie " to those who do not know his given name, claims Bethlehem for his home port. When looking at him one thinks naturally of the " Star of Bethlehem. " He is quiet, and unohtrusive, hut on rare occasions his melodious ( ?) voice may be heard above the multi- tude. He has shown his ability on the drill field as a good leader and keeps his squad of runts always on the go. It has not been definitely determined whether he attained that quality at the Acadcmv or in the R. O. T. C. at Lehigh. " Fanny " has shown keen interest and ability in basketball. It is said that he can travel faster on a basketball court tlian a rumor in an old ladies ' home. Although rather light for football material, " Fanny " came out for the squad and showed up well. He claims to be " hot stuff " with the girls. To prove it he has a picture of his O. A. O. with the caption " With oceans of love and a kiss on every wave. " What more could one seek? Then fly betimes, for only they Conquer love than runs away. — " Conquest by Flight. ' Thirty-three JOSEPH DOMINIC CONWAY Si ' iUNGFUXii, Illinois I-ootlnilt (s); Track (s); f on-top (2). Made up he looks like this: an Irish face surmount- ing one hundred and fifty pounds of grit, — Joe Conway. There have been very few men who have passed through the Academy who worked harder or plugged longer than our " Sleuth. " He has that indomitable pluck and luck of the Irish. " Joe " has shown his form with the football team and has also burned up the cinders with the track team. He will try anything once, — this includes the fair sex. His greatest ambition is to find a chemical com- pound that will cure sea sickness. His second ambi- tion is to follow in the wake of McCorniack. Many are the friends and few the enemies of the pluckiest man that the Academy has had in many years. Sentimentally, I am disposed to harmony But organically, I am incapable of a tune.

" Flivver " hails from Savannah, " Gawgah, " but since his (Iclint in these parts he has slowly overcome that liandicaii. He is unacquainted with the words relating to hurry or worry, but goes his way in true Southern fashion. The cold winters of New England were the bane of his existence, and many times we have seen him in a pensive mood when he was longing for the balmy breezes and the warm sunsliine of his native home. Ford has kept himself out of the athletic limelight, but nevertheless, he has been an ardent supporter of the athletic teams and has also rendered invaluable aid to the Academy publications. Ford ' s hobby is starting arguments. He takes keen delight in formulating an argument, and after the verbal battle waxes hot, he quietly withdraws from the battle area and surveys with pleasure the results of his endeavors. " Flivver " is a worker. All that he has attained he has reached by dint of hard and con- scientious labor. What more is there to be said? He has given much to his Alma Mater in his quiet way and stands high in the esteem of all who know him. v . " Like a pale martyr in his shirt of fire. " — S)iiitli. Thirly-five .

Had George refused to heed the call of the " itching foot " back in the Spring of ' 20, we would not now be singing his praises. Unfortunately, however, the wanderlust was too strong, so he went back to his ADOPTED South to fall in love with " Peggy " and bricks to the natives. The brick business for an engaged man is a precarious profession, so " G. decided to do another stretch in the Coast Guard where the remuneration is less in quantity but more regular in appearance. Gelly is aggressive and believes in getting what he goes after. He is a clever conversationalist since he is remarkably well read, has a retentive memory, and knows how to express himself clearly and con- vincingly. We regret, however, that he has one weakness,— that of pictures, and they are all of one woman. It is rumored that he counts them all before sleeping and the absence of one upsets his whole system. Which reminds us of a little jingle: " My God! I cannot sleep, My pictures are astray. Unless they are returned by nine. There will be Hell to pay.

His magnetic personaHty, which is the most promi- nent thing about him. has gained liim many friends wlio worship him with an admiration that almost borders upon idolatry. " Jimmy ' s " greatest ambition has been to convince us that there is only one state in the Union, namely, — TPIXAS. For hours he has told us of the glories of that sun-baked area and of the " he-men " that it produces. His untiring efforts in behalf of various Academy activities and his popularity are silently witnessed to by tlie responsible position of class secretary-treasurer that he has filled during the past year. There is a driving force and determination about him that negotiates all barriers. We have described " Jimmy " as we know him,— sincere, resourceful, dependable, and one who has always thought of others first. " Jiliiiuy! " " Oh those eyes, Jimmy !

Passing from the frivolous side, we enter into his athletic life. For two years he w as a mainstay in the backfield. Once free, he travelled over the white lines with unbelievable speed. In baseball, " Becky " tossed the sphere with uncanny twists, and when not in the box he was a stellar performer at second base. In crew, he has come through on top, and at present is reposing in the first shell. Any man (or femme) can be proud to have you as a friend. mj- " The world was sad, and the garden was a wild.

Frank has doted on being the goat, in his good- natured way, and he has never resented the pranks and the tricks of his classmates as long as everybody enjoyed the fun as much as he did. As a matter of repetition, we might say that Frank resrnihlcs his brother, inasmuch as " Willie " is the carbon copy of Frank. One biography might apply to both, as they eat, sleep, think, and collect the same number of " spots " in the same identical manner. They are as inseparable as a pair of pants. Frank has admitted that the fair sex don ' t bother him. but a friend once dragged him aside and gave him some " hot dope. " Since that time he has been on the trail of the " elusive femme. " — a " nice " ' girl with a fat purse and a fatal case of galloping consumption. At the psychological moment he will present his case, ood nature, his likable disposition and his attitude toward life bring a feeling of require and seven-eighths halo, and he will be asset to the " All human history attests That happiness for man, tlie hungry sinner !

William Wilsnn Kenner hails from the city of poli- ticians and " oil men. " The city is also famous for its twins. To look at " Willie, " you would think that he is about as near being an angel as one could possibly be. Surprising as it may seem, he does not materially differ from his looks. He is angelic, but that is not all There are manjvkinds of angels. When he first came here he was a model youth. Did not carry matches, smoke, or study. Little by little the sinister influences crept in, and he yielded, until at last he has entered the ranks of the brilliant. He has fought his way gallantly through the years here and now you find him one of the best liked chaps in the Academy. We see him now, all smiles, his eyes sparkling, and his head shaking gently as he releases another delight- ful verbal barrage. In spite of his unsophisticated ways, the " Mouse " has never found it difticult to make friends in any port. This, no doubt, is the natural result of the polish he received in hob-nobbing with Washington ' s exclusive " 400. " " Willie " has always been one of our best friends. He has never told us so, but we have counted that much on general principles. , The best piece of " neck " in the Academy.

As far as the girls go, — and they go a long way with him, — we would say that he is " no mean actor. " He likes to believe that he is in the category of woman-haters, but his actions belie that fact. We have seen him go into action more than once. When it comes to seamanship " Charlie " has even the ocean tied in knots. " I never tempted her with word too large But, as a brother to his sister, show ' d Bashful sincerity and comely love.

" But that is just like " Pop " ; he is always breaking some- thing, though usually it is only the silence. Leamy ' s str.ing point is keeping the boys amused. You might think that the sole purpose of having him in the Academy was to keep the class from getting in low spirits. " Pop " has done other things for the Academy, how- ever, besides improving the humor and morale of the cadets. For two years he held down a flank on the football team in no m ean fashion, and for one season he played third base on the ball team in the same unbeatable style. When a call was sent out for volunteers to carry on the Forctop, it was " Pop " who undertook to put the humor section on the map. Did he succeed? Foolish question, he did. Furthermore, on Tide-Rips he has been indispensable. Leamy is a genial acquaintance and a good inan in a party, for his ever ready wit guarantees a pleasant evening for all. A ready and steadfast worker, he bids well to become one of the most efficient officers of the service. ' ■ -■ -iJr " He ' d sparked it with full twenty gals.

" Cy " has kept us in a joyful fit of anticipation as to what he will oppose next. He has his somewhat radical views upon life in general, and it is fortunate, or possibly unfortunate, that he lacks the support necessary to carry them out. One of his greatest ambitions is to get himself around a plate of roast " bif " topped by a dish of " fute " salad and to exist in that state of ecstasy until the " inner man " is satiated and then to seek solace in the arms of Morpheus. He will be well fitted for the position of mattress tester should he leave the service. " Biscuit " flashed his form at football and his aggressive nature brought him in the midst of all the scrimmages. At crew, he won a place on the squad by his willingness and his persistency. He finds a way to surmount all obstacles, especially in a free-for-all ar.gument.

The former is a light subject that does not strike here, while the latter is the subject upon which we dwell at present. Peterson is undoubtedly and without question " God ' s gift to women. " Due to his natural bashfulness, he will never admit this, ye t his classmates, from their personal observation, have, without a dissenting vote, placed this title upon him. Peterson ' s agreeable personality has always been welcome and he has won many friends by his friendly smile and his generous nature. He is a willing worker and is ready at all times to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate. As a student, Peterson proved to be one of " Chet ' s " proteges. Although not an athlete, " Pete " never failed to be on hand at all contests to give his whole-hearted support to the teams. an ardent student of politics and so firm a believer in the League of Nations that he aspires to unite the Irish and the Swedish under the American flag. •cr- ' !

This can be attested to in the case of one Roy L. Raney. He is a leader. There is no alternative. His ability has been shown in the class-room, in the drill hall, and on the athletic field. First, last, and always, Roy is a worker. Who does not remember those nights at sea when the familiar call of " Watch on deck! " resounded over the ship? Then Roy could be seen at his best. In the class-room he gained the respect and esteem of the officers by his persistent and diligent labors. On the athletic field he has shown himself to be an athlete as well as an ardent sportsman. It is fine to be a crack athlete, but it is still better to be a good sport, — to play the game for the love of it, in victory or defeat. This we believe to be the sign of a good fellow and a gentleman. What loyal son of the Coast Guard has not roared himself hoarse as Roy circled the bases after placing a long one in center field? In football, he played a good, steady game and his unbeatable spirit was transmitted to his team mates. 1 (I : 4 ■ ' I suppose him virtuous, know him noble.

The ancient Cirecks had as tlieir idol the well rounded individual, the man active in the field, stud ' ous in the classroom, and of a strong character. The qualifications of that illustrious race are of the highest, but we find among our midst Walter Raymond Ricliards, who appears to have attained the ideals set by the ancients. Since he is modest it is up to us to spread the glory of this well rounded individual who has graced the precincts of the Coast Guard Academy. " Dick, " for that is the appellation that he goes by, has won scores of friends by his pleasing personality and his willingness to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate. In fact, his keen mind and his knowledge of things in general have placed a high value upon his opinion, and he is much sought after to solve innumer- able problems that arise during a cadet ' s career at the Academy.

" As a result of this position, Awalt ' s career at the Academy has been rather hectic, his path beset with trials and tribu- lations, and his bed, or should we say hammock, cer- tainly not one of rose s. We might, if the analogy will be pardoned, compare him to the " red-headed step- child " whom nobody wanted. He has been buffeted and tossed around by the supreme tribunal, i. c., " The Board, " until his status is as complex a problem as the " League of Nations. " The big thing is, however, that through all this turmoil Laurel ' s pride has put on a patient " grin and bear it " smile and come through as a " darn good fellow. " But then anyone could be patient and grin after teaching school a year in Hyattsville, Maryland. While at the Academy, he has been the guiding hand of the financial affairs of the Forcto ) and it is apparent, even to the unobservant, that the news organ of the Cadet Corps has indeed pros- pered under his management. Though not a participant in any field of sport either outdoor or indoor (?), he has given his whole-hearted support to all the athletic endeavors of the Academy. Social functions are his strong point, especially dances, and it is indeed well that the Government recently appointed thirty-five cadet engineers to console Connecticut College and the surrounding territory for the loss of Await. Outside of the fact that he spends most of his time studying in order to " cut-throat " and be first man in a class of which he is president, vice-president, secretary-treasurer, sergeant-at- arms, and sole member, there is little more to say except that he is a true Maryland gentleman who loves his fried chicken and Bermuda Hotels.

The first, composed of McNeil. Fish, Marron and Bimdrcau. made its debut in May, 1920, and went on the European cruise of that year. The second entered the service in August and when the " Itasca " returned in the fall Shannon, Belford, Barron, Goodman and Nelson were at the Academy to greet her. These sections were kept separate the first year, but after Boudreau, Nelson, Marron, and Goodman bilged the two were consolidated. This class was sent to the west coast during the second summer via the Navy ammunition carrier " Pyro " to bring back the gunboat " Vicksburg, " later rechristened the " Ale.xander Hamilton, " which had recently been acquired from the Navy as a practice cutter for cadets. The trials and tribulations of the secorid class year were safely and easily weathered and they passed on to the first class cruise with no further depletion of ranks. On this trip they visited the Azores, Bermuda, and a number of ports on our Atlantic Coast. There were a nunaber of hairbreadth escapes during the last year, but while Fish. Belford, and Shannon had the honor of the " Spot Letter " conferred upon them by the minority of the class. McNeil and Barron, they all graduated in May. 1023. Their real History is being written in that of the war on Rum Row. - r-,. (I ' Ml About the time that the vanguard of the famous class of ' 25 arrived at the Academy, four would-be bilge divers became cadet engineers. They were Dondero, Baily, Harwood, and Olsen and we almost think of them as members of our own class because for the month that elapsed before the " Alex Ham " returned from Cape May, they rowed on the same thwarts as the rest of us and were merely " Fred, " " Jack. " " Charlie, " or " Olie " instead of " Mister. " After the Gardiners Bay cruise of ' 22, Sarratt from North Carolina and Murray from Washington, D. C, swelled the roll of the engineering class to six names. These six cadets wrestled with everythin.g from steam engineering to radio and five of them were successful ; Dondero was the unlucky ( ?) one. They had most of their subjects with the first class and gradually grew away from the lowly third classmen who had been their playmates during the summer. They were not, however, destined to graduate without going on a cadet cruise and they conse- quently made the one in the summer of iy23. During this cruise they stood deck as well as engine room watches and became as proficient in line duty as engineering. At the completion of the cruise they were lined up on the quarterdeck and, after a brief graduation ceremony, were presented with diplomas and commissions. We have heard much of their activities since then and as officers they have shown the same spirit that characterized their career as cadets ; that of active support and cooperation in every phase of service life.

Prophets were not flourishing in 1902 and the Coast Guard failed to oljserve February T3th of that year as a hoHday. The error is not generally appreciated, though it can- not be long before everyone will know that date as " Nat ' s " birthday. As noted above, Salem, Mass., was the place favored. Hav- ing graduated from the local high and gr.im- mar schools " Nat " decided to try engineering and gave Northeastern University the re- sponsibility of his education. After one and a half years there, he gave up engineering and came to the Acadenn-, where throughout his three years ' st.iy Ik- ixirted considerable influence in shaping tin- alLiirs of the cadets. The list above show.s thu e sports in which he was most prominent but it docs not tabu- late all the activities that he supported or was instrumental in organizing. He was a good student at all times, although a mem- ber of Connecticut College considerably im- paired his scholastic technique in his last two years. Much could be written about his gentlemanly characteristics but the whole subject can be summed up by saying that he was liked by all who knew him.

The result was that the aforesaid Raymond Virgil Marron did arrive in New London, shortly after- ward, full of tlie fabled western " wim, wigor, and witality " which condition never altered except that the " wim " changed to " wimmin " with the passage of time and the growth of Connecticut College. Responsibilities and honors were heaped on his shoulders as the tabulated list above gives evidence. He proved himself a congenial acquaintance, a warm and sincere friend and above all a gentleman. While it was with pride and pleasure that we congratulated him on com- pleting his course at the Academy, our felici- tations were tinged with regret at losing such a popular and active mcmlicr of the cadet corps. Sixty-five ! CLASS OF 74 The class of ' 24 began its official career with one cadet ; it ended it with two. In the interim between the beginning and the finis of their history the size of the class rose and fell from time to time and the recording of their checkered cadet life is an arduous task. Dyer was the original member, entering the Academy during the summer of 1921. He was appointed too late to make the cruise of that year, and so, throughout the summer, he loafed around the Academy reservation in company with Bergen and Snyder, two cadet engineers who had been appointed at the same time. These three lived the life of " Reilly " until the " Alexander Hamilton, " then the " Vicksburg, " returned from the west coast. At this time the class was augmented by the addition of Goodman and Marron who had been members of the preceding class but who had found that French is a stumbling bl ock in many a cadet ' s career. In addition, " Rand, who had resigned from the Academy in 1919, was reappointed and thus the roster of the class was boosted to four names. Rand didn ' t last long, however, as a climb to the aerie domain of the foremast convinced him that he had been correct in his previous decision, that dry land was preferable to the bounding main. Goodman was the next casualty, for so diligently did he strive to master the French language that he completely forgot the English and consequently in the fall of ' 22 he resigned. At this time a curious state of affairs existed at the Academy. Just before the mid-year exams in the same year a new class of five had been admitted and the remainder of these, three in number, were not due to become second classmen until the February of 1923. The advent of the class of ' 25 in August, 1922, therefore gave the Academy two sets of third classmen separated by a half year ' s scholastic work and a summer cruise term. To overcome this difficulty the authorities shoved Roimtree, Holberg and Collins ahead a half year, and then made them a part of the class of ' 24. This raised the roll of that class to its maximum strength of five. Unfortunately, however, it was not destined to remain that large for long, as misfortune seemed to dodge the steps of the three that had been advanced. Rountree was the first to be hit with hard luck, as a protracted stay in the hospital during the fall of 22 put him hopelessly behind in his scholastic work and left him with too much of a handicap to overcome at the mid-year exams. Collins seemingly did not realize the necessity of " boning " excessively to make up for the half year skipped, and as a result the mid-years proved to be his Waterloo also and both he and Rountree turned back to become active members of the class of ' 25. Hollberg made the academic grade successfully, but on the following cruise poetry and day dreams abetted by several unfortunate incidents, such as allowing a row boat to become moored under the jib boom during his mid-watch, proved his undoing. He resigned before the beginning of the fall term of ' 23, and the class was then down to two memljcrs. During their first class year at the Academy there is little to record. The two went through the terms without appreciable difficulty, studying the requisite amount to receive commendable marks. The remainder of the time they enhanced their social education and if marks were given for this branch, both members would liave received gold stars. They graduated in May, 1924, as one of the most popular classes that had ever left the Academy. i CLASS OF 75 The varied history of the class of 1925 began in August, 1922, when thirty-two young hope- fuls, from various parts of the country, reported at the Academy for cadet training. One day at the Academy was enough to convince Tee, our Indian representative from Oklahoma, that the ways of the white man were not for him and a few days later, when his resignation had been accepted, he caught the train back to his father ' s tepee. Then ensued a glorious month of outdoor life— military drill, signalling, boat drill, swim- ming, and all the other things that go to make from the raw material the finished product, a man wcirthy to carry his country ' s commission. The upper classmen were away on a cruise to the Azores, so the new third class thrived and early developed that spirit of independence that has marked their sojourn at the Academy. A class meeting was held and the class organized with the following officers: Kohler, president; Strow, vice-president ; Richmond, secretary and treasurer; and Betzmer, sergeant-at-arms. Liberty every night soon led to a familiarity with certain phases of life in New London, such as Ocean Beach, O ' Leary ' s, and the Capitol, not to mention a certain Mercer roadster. Sixty-seven liut such a life of ease fnr mere third class- men could not endure forever. Before many weeks had been spent at the Academy the " Alexander Hamilton " returned, and the " piches " learned that there are such things in life as upper classmen, who are superior beings and are entitled to, and expect, a large amount of respect and deference. Their stock of knowl- edge was further increased when they moved aboard the ship and made the acquaintance of the far famed and justly honored " deck scrub- bers " and " squeegees. " With the return of the " Hamilton " came twci new additions to the class, Baker and Goodman, who had been members of the class of ' 24. Then followed a few short weeks of seago- ingf?) life, a week ' s stay in New York Harbor being one of the most prominent features. From there the cadets made a pilgrimage to Brooklyn and visited the gigantic Sperry plant and were initiated into some of the mysteries of the gyroscopic compass. Leaving New York, the " Hamilton " turned her prow homeward and in a few short days tlie cruise of 1922 was ended. During the trip northward the education of the new cadets was not neglected by any means and gradually the began to pick up the salty customs of the dyed -% =x„. vT DW Stxty-etght W I ' r k K if hi ' i. in the wool sailor. One enthusiastic young lookout startled even the oldtimers with his lusty hail of " Sail Ho — Dead ahead on the starboard how! " The arrival in New London was celebrated by the upper classmen with three weeks ' leave, the new cadets being left at the Academy to dismantle the ship. It was during this period that the class completely mastered that accom- plishment so striven after by all cadets — the ancient and honorable art of deadbeating. Goodman decided to try civilian life again and handed in his resignation. Leave over, the cadets entered upon another phase of Academy life and the cry of " study- hour " soon became familiar in the corridor of the cadet barracks. In October, the " powers tliat be " having decided that the class of ' 25 was a very valuable acquisition to the Academy, fifteen more cadets arrived to swell the ranks of the by now famous class and make it the largest class in the history of the Academy. By this time the studies were on in earnest but week end pleasures served to break up the routine of the class room and to keep life bright for the future admirals. During this term, Sam Negley, one of the best K - v Seventy Next came the Marine Rifle Range at Ouantico wliere oven the marines commented nn tlic records that wore set up hy the embryo niarUsmen. Norfolk, Provincetown, and Boston followed in short order; then came Halifax — with its moonlight canoeing parties, its afternoon teas, and its dances. It is rumored that even now- certain of the members of our class receive tinted envelopes, at regular intervals, bearing tile postmark of the Halifax Postoffice. From Halifax the course was laid for Hamil- ton, Bermuda, where the stay was dominated by the hospitality of the Bermudian people to such an extent tliat all hands expressed the desire to return the next year. While in Bermuda, orders were received to join the Special Coast Guard Squadron at Cold Springs Inlet, N. J., which was to be assembled on September 1st, so after returning to New London and taking a short run up to Province- town, where the cadets aided in conducting steaming tests on the cutter " Modoc, " and to Gloucester, where all hands joined in the big parade which was held by that city to celebrate its three liundredth anniversary, the ship was headed south once more and arrived at Cold Springs Inlet the last day of August. ?1 l fj " CV ' - t,|TN._55 Sd - In the competitions that were held during the ensuing two weeks, the personnel of the " Alex- ander Hamilton " did remarkably well, rapturing almost every possible place. After taking on board the brilliant array of cups and medals which belonged to her as the result of these conquests, the " Hamilton " again weighed anchor and got under way with orders to make " all possible speed " for New London. New London was reached on the 13th and after graduating five cadet engineers and putting the ship out of commission, fifteen days ' leave was granted to all hands. At this time we lost another mem- ber, Cadet Kemble elect ing to try the merchant marine service. Leave over, the cadets again buckled down to work and were soon deeply immersed in their academic studies. The second year proved to be another hard year on the personnel of the class and before the year was over Sullivan, Betzmer, Olivet, McNickle, Israel, Halstead, Baker, and Swann, had left, some through voluntary resignations, the rest through failing 10 make the grade in their studies. Shortly after the commencement of the second term, word was received from Head- quarters that the class was tn be graduated at the end of the cruise on account of the crying need for officers in the Service, so the already heavy academic hurden of the class was increased and the midnight oil was burned often and long before the successful veterans finally liassed their last exams in May and said good bye to the Academy classrooms. " Permission t,i have late lights, Sir? " became a familiar Miiind in the corridors of the barracks during tliat " do or die " term. Promptly at one o ' clock on June ist. the " Hamilton " again cast off her mooring lines and got under way, this time bound for Gravesend, l-:ngland, on the practice cruise of 1924. The trip across the water consumed twenty-three (lays so land was a welcome sight to the entire crcw when the other side was reached. Liberty at Gravesend gave all the cadets a chance to visit London and the opportunity was not ignored. After a twelve day stay in Gravesend the " Hamilton " got under way and after two days in the English Channel, reached Cherbourg, France, where all the cadets were given suffi- cient leave to enable them to visit Paris if they were so inclined. From Cherbourg, the ship proceeded to Lisbon, Portugal, and from there to Funchal, Madeira. Funchal was left behind on July 29th; we were homeward bound. ' i y After stopping en route at Hamilton, Bermuda, for a few days, the " Hamilton " reached her berth at the Academy dock at eight o ' clock on the morning of August 26th. In the afternoon all hands moved up to the Academy barracks and in their spare moments began making preparations for leave. Brief graduation exercises were held on September 1st. After a short talk to tlic graduating members by Admiral Billard, the diplomas were presented and the " class of ' 25 " said good bye to the institution which despite its hours of hard work and study, its strict discipline and its times of discouragement, has earned a lasting place in the hearts of the members of the class.

This necessitated jiicking some of our own class as tlie first " leaders of men. " After much (juestioning it came to light that among our lowly numhers were representatives of many famous military organizations, among which were West Point, Annapolis, National Guard, R. O. T. C, C. M. T. C, lioy Scouts and various volunteer fire departments. After much persuasion ( ' :) men were found who volunteered to teach their classmates the gentle art of soldiering and it was not long hefore we were hard at work. Some of the instructors were a little handicapped by a shortage of commands but the few tliat they did know were faithfully practiced. Who can forget all one happy morning doing " To the rear. March I " or a whole afternoon at bayonet drill playing a game entitled " Man behind you " ? This game, by the way, comes in very handy to frighten away creditors, bill collectors, insurance men, etc. The idea of the game is to put on your worst face (the usual one will generally do), and upon hearing the command " Man behind you " you cry " woof " at the top of your voice and leap into the air. landing faced in the opposite direction. A bayonet is then usually unnecessary. This game was so well learned that the cry is yet sometimes heard around the Academy. Upon the arrival of the " Alexander Hamilton " at the Academy, we gave up the drills and embarked on the now famous " Gardiners Bay Cruise. " The rifles were thus sacrificed for deck swabs but we were occasionally induced by the upper classmen to pretend that the scrubbers were rifles and to drill with them as such. When we again formed for drill in Septem- ber the atmosphere was changed. No longer had we a fellow classmate ' s commands to mimic and follow as we chose. We were soon undeceived as to the slackness of military life and learned the advisability of being prompt 15H. in obeying commands. Due to tlie untiriny; efforts of the upper classmen, the cadet com- pany took on a military appearance and we soon felt almost equal to a public appearance. After a few months of the usual drill, it was decided to hold a competitive drill at the U;l ' l U ' I ItLiip ' ' ' ' , end of the Academic year. The Coast Guard JUM ' Alumni Association generously offered to donate prizes for individual competition and a silver loving cup to be awarded to the winning platoon. With such inducements to spur us on, the rivalry became intense and the proficiency went up in all branches of the company. On graduation day, at io:oo a. m., the company was formed and we were marched to the parade ground which was surrounded on one side by the Fort Wright band and on the other three by " femmes " and gold braid. The onlookers beheld us for the first time, adorned in our new dress uniforms consistins of white caps, white mess trousers and full dress jackets. Truly we did present a sight (?) and our ears rang to tlie many Ahs ! and Ohs ! from the various O. A. O. ' s present. The second platoon, commanded by Cadet Shannon, carried off the honors in the platoon competition, but Cadet McNeil ' s platoon gave them a good run for their money. The Cadet Engineers captured all the prizes in the individual drills when Baily, Murray, and Olsen proved themselves to be the " nifty gun wielders " who took the " bacon, " as the saying goes. Admiral Reynolds presented the prizes and remarked on the creditable showing made. Our next public appearance as a company took place on Decoration Day, 1923, just before leaving on the cruise. In order to make sure of being able to follow the right course and not start back to the Academy too soon, we were taken over the route of the parade at 6 :oo o ' clock in the morning. The parade itself went off very well due, perhaps, to our preliminary morning training and the cadet corps presented a good appearance. After a long eight-mile inarch under a broiling sun the cadets were still undaunted and in the afternoon the ball team journeyed to the Sub Base for a game of base- ball while the rest of the cadets moved bag and baggage down to tlie ship to be ready for the cruise which was to start the next day. Four times during the summer were we called upon to show our military prowess. Twice during the Shriners ' Convention in Washington we were paraded down Pennsylvania Avenue. Once in the evening for the benefit of the adult Washingtonians and guests and then on the l UI " Seventy-seven followina niornina for the school children. In our position on the right of the line we lived up to the Coast Guard reputation to do things thoroughly. Our next showing was one which will always be remembered by those participating. We were in Gloucester at the time of their Tercentenary Anniversary and the cadets were invited to parade. Some difficulty was experienced in obtaining the right of the line but it was finally secured, much to our later embarrassment. By accident or design, the cadet company was placed in the parade so that there was one band directly in front of it and a band directly behind. The leading band played to the cadence of one himdred and twenty-eight beats to the minute and the band behind to the cadence of one hundred and forty-four beats. They both insisted upon playing at the same time, and due to our strategic position, a good time (?) was enjoyed by all cadets present. Keeping any kind of a step was an impossibility and we made a very poor showing. At least we inferred that we did, after we overheard some of the caustic remarks made by the fishermen that lined the sidewalks. Everything must have an end, however, and we finally got back to the dock ready to return to the ship. After looking at our expressions a bystander was heard to repeat those famous words, " She ' s a tight little service. " Sevcnly-ciiihl k. -f Tlic cadet coniiiany led the parade of the Coast Guard Battalion assembled from all of the ships present at the Cape May Regatta early in September. When we returned from our brief leave in tlic fall a curious condition existed. There was obviously n ot enough first classmen to fill the responsible positions of platoon commanders and petty officers. The selection of men from our class presented a problem since there was no way of determinintr who were the suitable men- As a result periodic changes in com- mand were made throughout the fall in an effort to determine those men that were best fitted for the positions. Finally Wood and Raney were given permanent ratings as platoon commanders and the men for the non-commissioned places chosen. At this time the new sleeve insignia was introduced and although they were successful from an artistic standpoint they were not so from the financial side. They did. however, serve to worry the Navy enlisted contingent of New London for they could never figure out what kind of new " Chiefs " the cadets were. After the mid-year exams, preparations were again started for a competitive drill similar to the one held the year before. This time further inducements were offered for proficiency as it was understood that not only would the commander of the winning platoon be promoted to company commander but the men in that platoon would be given first chances for promo- tion. The drills were held on the morning of graduation day. In spite of the efforts put forth by the first platoon, the second platoon was again victorious and retained the cup for another year. In the individual drill Eastman, Walsmith, and Swicegood showed their superiority in the manual and were awarded the prizes. Admiral Billard was introduced, and after awarding the cup, spoke on the good showing made by the cadets. Due to a misunderstanding the movie man did not arrive in time for the competitive drill so after the boat races the cadets were again formed and did their stuff before the camera. It was nearly three o ' clock and the crew men had not eaten their dinner yet but. happily, their looks of starvation did not show in the pictures. The cadets marched in the Decoration Day parade just before leaving for Europe and this constituted the last appearance in public of the class of ' . 5 as a cadet military unit, since no opportunity was presented on the cruise for a parade or any other military maneuver. Seven y-nxnc Thus our military training as cadets was brought to an end and those men, Raney, Wood, Leamy, and Byrd, wlio had been chosen as company officers were robbed, by an early graduation, of the pleasure of commanding the cadet company. The alternative is in itself compensation sufficient to cancel the debt of the glory lost, so probably they have no complaint. There is little more to be said, but for those wlio may come in contact with us and who wish to test our military education, it is su.ggested that if we are ignorant of the command, " Right by squads, " " Left front into line, " or any other evolution, do not despair. With a rapidly rising inflection in your voice try " In Pl. ce. HALT! " and see what happens. I Eighty --: LETTER MEN Football Jordan Lea MY Marron McAvoY McKnickle McNeil, D. C.

That picture had a novel interest for not only did it show the team of the previous year, clad in nondescript uniforms of various styles, colors, and vintages, but it showed tlic whole cadet corps, for the entire per- sonnel of cadets were forced to play whether they knew anything about the game or not. One can not l)e too particular of the talent used when there are only about eighteen from which to pick. We did not hear of any stirring victories accomplished by this team, but it did defeat several nearby high schools and its picture deserves the place on the wall from the fact that the team was the first duly recognized organization in recent years. Several years ago the cadets formed a team which played under the name of the " Shamrocks. " It is said that on Sunday afternoon the team would go to town, hire a room at a hotel, discard their monkey - jackets for moleskins and sally fortli to meet some independent teatn. Their success is too far back to safely record but they set a precedent back in those days that has been carried on ever since and that is, — in spite of opposition, hardships, lack of coaching, setbacks, defeats and disappointments— PLAY FOOTBALL. For this reason the upper classmen welcomed the class of ' 25 with open arms, for in the thirty members of the first section of our class and the five engineer cadets the older men saw the nucleus of a football team that could go outside of high school and independent competition. A manager was appointed and charged with arranging games and negotiating with the authorities for a coach. This was in September while the cadets were making the famous Gardiners Bay cruise and, coupled with the difficulty of correspondence, the manager had to contend with the disadvantage that most college teams had filled their schedules many months before. Rhode Island State College finally offered us a game, so on the last Saturday in September the team, accompanied by the remainder of the cadet corps, en masse, made a pilgrimage to Kingston. The practice of the team up to that time had consisted of the follow- ing: one signal drill on board ship which ended in a boat race to recover the pigskin; X .- - ' -_:- ? ■ irx- l Eighty-fgur ' Nf Back R,_K,- lt yH. : Middle RozL SoLTK Front Rozi ' — Flesh e , ..ANsciM, Richards, Dexter, Asst.

RaNEY R one s.gnal practice on the sandy beach at Gardiners Bay; one scrimmage on the Ghetto gridiron- and one signal practice on the parade ground. The first half of the game went to Rhode Island State who scored twelve points on fumbles of the cadets. The Academy team showed up better m the second half, but the cadet backs lacked the necessary punch to put a touch- down across. Twice Marron, Baker, Jordan, and Richmond carried the ball down the field to within scoring distance but their marches availed them nothing for they failed to take the ball across. The game was not marked by startling football talent on either side but what was lacking in the fundamentals of the sport was made up in clean fight that marked the contest. Leave for the upper classmen had already begun when the Rhode Island State game was played, so the upper classmen departed for home immediately upon the conclusion of the game. For two weeks the third class went on with football practice at odd hours, filling the gaps made by the absence of the upper classmen who played on the team, with substitutes. It " was during this period that Carlstedt had the misfortune to have his leg broken. This accident almost put an end to the recently inaugurated sport. The return of the upper classes brought Marron, captain of the team, back and as much time as possible was given to practice under his tutelage. There was no coach but the team went on trying new plays and developing old ones. In the last part of October the Torpedo School at Newport was met and a stinging defeat of six to nothing was received at their hands. Just before this game an appeal had been made to Ensign Clarke, the star of the Sub Base team, to coach the Academy team and he volunteered to give any time that he could spare. He made several trips to the Acad- emy and pointed out the many imperfections of our style of play. He did not approve of our methods since he was a pupil of Dobie whose methodical tactics are known the country over. The night before the game with Providence College he prevailed on us to change our system and in the result- ing confusion we went down to a 26 to o defeat the next day. That game completed the season of 1922. There seemed to be no possibility of getting a coach for the season of ' 2. , so during the summer it was decided to abandon football. During leave, however, several adventurous souls who had remained in New London ventured to schedule three games without the cognizance of the Athletic Association. Rather than cancel these games so inadvertently scheduled it was decided to organize a squad and play the schedule. The first game was with Providence College and they succeeded in running up a score of 27 to o. The only redeeming feature of this game is that for the last twenty-three minutes of the game, after having had 27 points scored on it. the disheartened, tired, and crippled cadet team savagely defended its goal and warded off onslaught after onslaught of a team that was out to establish a field record. The next game was with Rhode Island State Colle.ge and it is this contest that really deserves criticism, not because the cadets lost 13 to 0, but because the defeat was occasioned by a lack of cooperation. The cadet team played rings around their opponents but it was due to individual efforts and not teamwork. The last game was with Lowell Textile Institute and while the cadets were defeated, 14 to o, the game was commendable in that it was one of the cleanest and hardest combats ever staged on a gridiron. One remarkable thing about this game was that there was not a single penalty in the contest. After the unfortunate results of the ' 2 season, it was a.gain decided to abandon the great old fall sport, but undoubtedly when the time rolls around again, the younger generation, not profiting by the experience of previous classes, will follow the old tradition establislied by the ' •Shamrocks " — PLAY FOOTBALL. r ' % l " ■ Eighty-six r L .k ;f ' rL il BASEBALL H The beginning of tlic 1923 season found the cadets full of pep and confidence ; the close found them a much sadder and wiser crowd. By June there were four good reasons why the Coast Guard Academy should not be repre- sented in inter-collegiate baseball, viz., The Connecticut State Agricultural College, North- eastern University, Providence College, and the fast stepping team from the Submarine Base. All of these teams administered defeats to our cluli hut there is no person who can gainsay the fact that the members of the ball team did their best to stem the tide of defeat. Neither was the " die hard " spirit limited to the players themselves, for throughout, the cadet corps su|)ported the team and never once in the face of defeat did that support waver. In fact after the game with the Connecticut Aggies in which the cadets received a disheartening setback, one of the Nutmeg State fans remarked that, " If you played ball the way you yelled, you would have a big league organization. " The only victories during the season were two on our home grounds. We scored over the cadets on the Pennsylvania Nautical School ship " Annapolis, " and our friendly enemies, the Tampa Post of the American Legion. The annual practice cruise put an end to inter-collegiate competition, and from then on " Lady Luck " smiled with favor on the cadets. In Halifax we routed a local team which had enjoyed comparative success and immunity from defeat tmtil they essayed to tackle our outfit. Then, encouraged by the wonderful showing made by all other teams from the " Alexander Hamilton, " the ball team entered the series for the fleet championship at Cape May with the determination to make a clean sweep. Decisive victories were won at the expense of the Gresham, Modoc, and Tampa which gave the cadets the undisputed championship of the Coast Guard and a silver cup for good measure. Such a happy ending did much to restore the confi- dence of the Corps, and evened up the score for the early part of the season. The first games had, however, showed very plainly that the cadets were not ready for big time baseball. The fight was always there, but experience, short practice hours, and the lack of a good ball field were handicaps too great to overcome. Believing that future competition would not enhance the reputation of the Acad- emy, the Athletic Association decided to cancel all collegiate games on the 1924 schedule, and to discontinue the sport until some time when the handicaps would not be so great. During tlie 1924 season only two games were played. The Tampa Post came back with a determined team bent on crushing the cadets in defeat. To satisfy this lust for revenge on the part of the Legiondaries, a team was hastily n m Eighty-nine w s organized and sallied forth to check the in- vaders. Whether the famous " Ozone " of Tampa Post, remembering the good-natured chaffing that he had received at the hands of the cadets the previous year, and having blood in his e e, exhorted his teammates to super- baseball achievements or whether it was just the breaks of the game that gave the New Yorkers a 7-6 victory, has never been ascertained. Any way Tampa Post won, which evened up the count, so the battle for supremacy in 1925 promises to wax hot and provide an interesting conflict for everyone from spectators to participants. All baseball gear was left behind on the cruise, and the cadets even lost sight of the Big League games since tlie only information that could be obtained was from occasional news dis- patches. The idea of getting to play was never considered until a radiogram came from the London Post of the American Legion, challengi ng the cadets to a game in London. The Legion team had iust won easy victories over the U. S. S. " Pittsburg. " the S. S. " Leviathan " and a host of other teams of various organizations with American interests. They were anxious to add to their long string of triumphs which had given them the championship of Great Britain, Ireland and the Continent. The challenge was accepted ; uniforms were borrowed from the American Y. M. C. A., and on Sunday, June 29th, a determined team, but one badly in need of practice, marched out on the field at Stamford Bridge, London, to battle the champions. It cannot be said that the cadets were confident ; they had practiced but little during the spring and added to this was the disadvantage of having been at sea during the preceding three weeks and as yet they had hardly acquired their land legs. A crowd of five thousand people did not add to the comfort of the cadets as the members of the team feared that the people were due to be cheated out of their shillings. For six innings it was an airtight game with the score 2-1 in favor of the " Hamilton. " In the seventh, however, the Legion broke out its heavy artillery, push- ing four runs across. Each team gathered two counters in the eighth, giving the Legion a 7-4 lead at the beginning of tlie ninth. Deciding tliat it was now or never, the cadets started hitting and a string of singles, doubles, triples, and homers chalked up five runs for the " Alex Ham. " This took all the fight out of the Legion and the final score of 9-7 left the cadets as the champions of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Ninety 4 ■ ' ) TRACK This sport was initiated at tlic Academy by the Class of ' 25 during tlie spring of 1923, and after a year of mediocre success died a natural death due to a lack of time and facilities to practice. As early as the fall of ' 22 the project of building up a team around Betzmer and several other men who had already won track distinction at other institutions was promoted but little could be done during the winter. The climate of New London is not conducive to outdoor work and the only indoor track available was that of the " Y " which we could only use once a week. Not only this, but we were handicapped by the pessimism and doubt which usually accompanies such an undertaking. The authorities, the Athletic Association, and a number of cadets were openly skeptical. Finally Lieut. Heimcr stepp ed forward and volun- teered to coach a team if it was organized and in spite of the difficulties involved those interested in track turned out. Dyer was unanimously elected captain and as such, he drove the candidates for the team until by dint of hard and unceasing work under adverse conditions the team finally forced recosjnition on the Athletic Association. As a result, it was entered in the annual indoor meet held by the Buckley High School of New London during the early spring, and while the competition was not such as would indicate whether or not the Coast Guard Academy had a team of sufficient merit to engage a college organization, the great number of points captured by the cadets did prove conclusively that they were far superior to the high school athletes. Rane , R. L., Dyer, Gelly and Wood were the most outstanding performers of the evening ' s entertainment, as the meda ls and ribbons now kept in the office of the Superintendent at the Academy will show. Realizing that inter-collegiate competition was an impossibility until the Academy Iiad been more or less established in track as a sport, the team essayed to compete in the Annual Relay Carnival at the University of Pennsylvania. An entry application for a team in one of the mile relay events and another for Betzmer in the Pentathlon were sent in and both were accepted by the Carnival Committee. Steps were immediately taken to whip a relay team into shape and for six weeks during the last part of March and the first part of April, the track team made daily pilgrimages a mile or more across town to Morgan Field. Here, in spite of an abominable track, the chilling winds that swept the field or the sore muscles that resulted from the hard and intensive training, the members of the squad did their half, quarter, or mile conscientiously and without complaint. Much credit goes to Lieutenant Heimer, for throughout this period he not only gave his time and unceasing labor but he cheerfully used his machine to provide transportation for the team when the Academy truck was not available. Then on the day before the team was to leave for the great event, the most disheartening blow of all was received. The Athletic Association refused to pay the expenses of the relay team or Betzmer to Philadelphia. It was then that the characteristic cadet spirit became apparent. Rather than quit at the last minute the members of the team offered to pay their own expenses and, aroused by this, the cadets corps to the last man made voluntary contributions in order that the burden of expense would not fall on the team. Ninciy-three W-x -- -« ji Betzmer placed seventh in the Pentathlon, and in two of the events, the javelin and discus, he was second. Only the unfortunate accident of being fouled in the broad jump kept him from capturing a higher place and bringing more distinction to the Academy. The relay team did their best but they vere not in their proper class being pitted against old timers like Carnegie. Rennsaleer, and Brooklj-n Tech. Even at that they managed to corral fourth place against the field, and by comparative times it is safe to say that had the Committee placed the relay team in one class lower they would have scored a victory. The Penn Relays served to arouse considerable interest in the Cadet Corps and quite a few new men turned out for the squad after the return of the team from Philadelphia. A practice meet was arranged with LaSalle Academy but they were not able to put up any real opposition as the cadets captured all the first and most of the second places. The next meet was with Connecticut Aggies on May 9 and while the Aggies trounced us 8i to 31, we had the satisfaction of seeing Betzmer break the javelin and discus record for the field. Wood took the high jump and Gelly placed second in the 12a and 220 yard hurdles. Dyer, Richmond, Raney and Byrd showed up well in their respective events but the Connecticut Aggies sprinters were too much for them. The best that the cadets could do was to push the farmers all the way. Tlie track season ended with a 100% victory at Cape May in September when the points captured by the relay team. Dyer. Gelly, Richmond, and Thomas, by Dyer and Eastman in the quarter, and by Gelly and Byrd in the hundred-yard dash helped the " Hamilton " to win the general efficiency cup. The season of 1924 never materialized. The resignation and graduation of several members of the 192.3 team, coupled with the rush of work occasioned by the early graduation of the 1925 class, caused the Athletic Association to dispense with all outside competition. Ninciy-four Ninety-five BASKETBALL The Academy ' s basketball team made a very creditable showing during the season of 1924. Considering the conditions under which it was whipped together, it would hardly be fair to expect much of the team. The only time tliat could be used for practice was the morning physical drill period, and the only place available for practice was the drill hall. Poor as it was, with its girders and roof supports making it impossible to get any practice in basket shooting, the team profited considerably by the time spent there, acquiring the knack of good fast passing and perfecting some snappy team work. The team played three of New London ' s fastest teams during the winter. In the first game it met a strong " Y " team and held them to a .16-22 score. The second game was decidedly different. The 8sth Brigade team, which finished second in New London ' s Military League, was trimmed to the tune of a 20-12 score. The final game was one of the best ever seen on the floor of the Y. M. C. A. The Academy team lined up against the Cosmopoli- tans, a team composed of college players, then home on tlieir mid-year vacation. The game was fast and furious. At half time the cadets held the lead with a 10-9 score and maintained it till the closing seconds of play, losing out in a heart-breaking finish by a 17-15 score. The following cadets made the squad: Byrd, Collins, Coughlin, Cowart, Eraser, Flesher, .Tones, Moore, McAvoy and O. C. Raney. Ninety-six u , »s I That a school whose purpose is to teach everythins relatina or pertaining to the water should not have a crew seems inconceivable. Yet such a condition existed at the Academy until recently. It is true that we had our surfboat crews and that they were undoubtedly well trained. But a crew in the accepted meaning of the word we did not have. The reason is obvious. We had no shell ; neither had we the money wherewith to purchase one. The Athletic Association took the matter up with the school authorities and Lieut. Comdr. Pine, recognizin.g that the sport would be of benefit to the cadets, undertook to get the necessary shell. After some correspondence. Yale and Harvard both offered to give the Academy a shell. These shells were gratefully accepted and brought to the Academy, where a special boat house and float were built. Some time was spent in reconditioning the shells and in the interim four rowing machines were installed in the gymnasium. Tmlay, a former crew man at Brown, was clertid captain of the crew and he undertook to coach the candidates, instructing them in the ruiiiiiiint ' , nf pulling a shell. The spring of 1924 found the Academy with a number of oarsmen all theoretically well grounded in the fundamentals of rowing a shell, but who for the most part had never been in one. The first trip on the Thames caused a lot of excitement, but although the boys were a little choppy in their pulling and appeared a little nervous, they returned to the float without accident. After that the crews went out regularly, many times when the weather was such as to cause an older and more experienced crew trepidation, and they steadily improved in form and skill until at the graduation in May they put on a very creditable exhibition race. The interest in the sport has not abated and the showing made by the squad last year would indicate that the Academy has a splendid chance in this field for intercollegiate competition. Unless, however, the old and dilapidated shells now in use at the Academy are replaced by new ones, it is very much feared that the sport will die out, due to the lack of equipment. ■ a-, f k Ninefy-cight K ;? ' ' X A straw vote among the cadets would have condemned the Cape May maneuvers to eternal perdition. The reason is obvious. Every one had hoped to be granted three weeks ' leave starting September first and the word that the " Alexander Hamilton " would participate in the maneuvers at Cold Spring Inlet during the first two weeks of September was like a dash of cold water to the spirits of the cadets. The general disappointment in being deprived of a week ' s leave at home did not deter them, however, from doing their best to aid the " Hamilton " to score a record victory in the athletic competition. It may have spurred them to more determined efforts since it is possible that any rancor that they harbored was vented on their opposition in the various events. The " Alexander Hamilton " was one of the first vessels of the special squadron to arrive at Cape May and as a matter of fact spent several days in the Inlet before the maneuvers began. This time was utilized by the cadets in getting acquainted with the town, the inhabitants, and the visitors of Cape May. Sunday, the first of September, saw all of the cutters of the fleets consisting of the flagship, " Modoc, " " Tampa. " " Gresham, " " Seneca, " " Yamacraw, " " Alexander Hamilton, " " Manning, " and " Kickapoo " at their prescribed anchorages in the Inlet but there were no events scheduled for that date. The day was an arduous one for the cadet officers of tlie deck, for between official calls, liberty boats, officers going ashore and to other vessels, bulletins, schedules of events, semaphore messages from other ships, and visitors, the watch was sure to prove lucrative in excitement, work and reprimands. The events began Monday and after a concert by the Navy band from the U. S. S. " Wyoming, " there was a dinghy race for the mess attendants. The " Hamilton " crew, having no dinghy, were forced to use the five-oar whaleboat. They finished third, principally because. due to the scarcity of entrees, there was no place lower in which to finish. Following this event, the contest for the beautiful McAllister Motorboat Trophy Cup took place and our faithful old " Bedelia, " worn and tired after having been the plaything of the cadets for the previous three months, refused to negotiate the six-mile course at a pace sufficient to warrant a position in any class but the " also rans. " Things looked bad for the " Hamilton " at this point for we had only garnered a third place in the dinghy race and this did not count in the final score for the general efficiency cup. " Revenge is sweet " is an old adage and we proved this to perfection when Lawson, a member of the Class of ' 25, sailed the surfb oat of the " Alexander Hamilton " to a V r ,-st 55g -. ' decisive victory over the entire field of entrees. He got away to a good start and by the time he started up the last leg of the course he was so far ahead of all the other boats that there _ jBV { " ' ' T H " never any doubt of the outcome. On top of this victory r) 1 t isM .Aii l eame the news that the track team had scored a hundred per- cent, victory. Both entries tallied in the hundred-yard dash and the quarter-mile run, taking first and second in both events. The relay team also added to the total score by breasting the tape first in their race. These victories compensated for the defeat of the morning, placing the " Hamilton " in front of the other contenders for the b ig cup. Tuesday morning was given over to infantry drill in the big Air Station hangar in order to work out the details of the battalion dress parade and the competitive infantry drill which was to be held later in the week. In the afternoon the black gang of the " Hamilton " captured another first place in the five- oared whaleboat race for engineers. Following this, fire and abandon ship drill were held to test the comparative efficiency of the different vessels in meeting emergencies of this nature. Wednesday might well have been called " Hamilton " Day for we did not suflfer a single defeat. We led ofif by winning the ten-oared surfboat race. In this event, a crew made up of cadets and enlisted men with Lieut. Donohue, i. e., " Jiggs, " as coxswain, pulled to a beautiful victory against the best that the other ships had to offer. There was probably more interest in this event than any other for it was considered the race " par excellence " and was a coveted prize. Following the surfboat race, Dexter and Walsmith won both places in the 50- and 100-yard swimming races, but the aquatic mainstay of the " Modoc " raised some technical objection and protested the 50-yard race. The committee decided, rather than have any hard feelings and unpleasantness, to re-run the race on another day. They had their trouble for nothing, however, as Dexter and Walsmith repeated their previous performance of capturing first and second places. In the afternoon the baseball team eliminated the " Modoc " from the fleet series by the score of 8 to o. The score describes the game. The officers ' dinner was held at the Congress Hall Hotel on Wednesday evening and while true to form the famous w ' ords, " The cadets are invited and will attend. " made their appear- ance, none of us regretted the fact that we had to be present in view of the pleasant evening enjoyed. After the inspection by Admiral Reynolds on Thursday morning the five-oared whaleboat race took place. There had been much criticism of the boat used by the " Hamilton, " the other ships contending that it was not as heavy as the standard type furnished to the cruising cutters. The " Hamilton " had no other single-banked boat so the crew decided that rather than pull a questionable boat, they would use the ten-oared whaleboat. In spite of this handicap, the unbeatable crew composed of cadets and enlisted men, with " Jiggs " again at the helm, proved too much for the representatives from the other ships and the defeated crews had to adinit that they had no alibi. Thursday afternoon each ship put its prize drill company through its paces before an assembled audience of interested spectators in the huge hangar outside of Cape May. The competition was keen throughout and every person present had a different opinion as to which was the best company so evenly were the contestants matched. The judges finally decided that the company from the " Tampa " merited first place, the " Yamacraw " second, and the " Alexander Hamilton " third. This was one event in w-hich the cadets could not take an active part since it was for enlisted men alone. The cadets were present, however, rooting for one ship and that was the " Hamilton. " The schedule for Friday morning called for a parade through the town and with the cadets leading the battalion in their position on the right of the line, the procession moved from the dock up into Cape May. through the main streets and along the boardwalk, returning to the dock by a different route. In the afternoon the baseball team clenched the fleet championship by defeating the Gresham in a tight game. This brought to a close the last of the inter-vessel competitions. The prizes were distributed by Captain B. L. Reed, on Saturday afternoon at the ball park, and while the function was well attended, the audience was not cosmopolitan in regard to the ships represented. Probably the crews from the other vessels did not wish to see the delegates from the " Hamilton " take away most of the silver loving cups and medals. The most valuable cup, the efficiency cup, was presented to Captain Hinckley for the " Alexander Hamilton. " The maneuvers being over, we sailed out of Cold Spring Inlet with a broom at our masthead to signify that for a common cause, rank, standing, and prestige could be laid aside to weld the crew and cadets into an organization which made the " Alexander Hamilton " the most efficient ship of the Service and enabled her to make a clean sweep. ULk One hundred and two PLBLICAnONS m m ' f 4 1 1 l t 5X Lieut. Comhr. James Pine Director of Sliuli-nl Pnb ' .ic -lioiis m X — ' One hundred and three HISTORY OF PUBLICATIONS TIDK RIPS At various times during the existence of the School of Instruction, United States Revenue Cutter Service, and in more recent years the United States Coast Guard Academy, attempts have been made to issue in some permanent form a record of cadet life. The need of such a publication is ever present, but the small size of the cadet corps has been an almost insurmountable obstruction to the publishing of an annual. The last notable attempt was made by the class of 1908. who published an edition of Tide Rips, which set a hi.a;h standard of excellence as a model for every other editorial staff. The class of 192.=;. in harmony with the spirit displayed by it throughout its career at the Academy, decided to emulate the example of its predecessors, and revived the policy of publishing a class book. This volume is the result and it is hoped that the succeeding classes will carry on the thread so recently resurrected with more or less regularity in the future. FORETOP The need of some mode of expression had ever been a dream, seemingly impossible of realization in a school of such meagre size as the Academy until sentiment, born in an active cadet corps and fostered by Commander H. D. Hinckley, Superintendent of the Academy, and Lieutenant Commander James Pine, Executive Officer, took concrete form during an athletic meeting in April, 1923, and the Forctop was born. The start was inauspicious. The first issues, published weekly, were mimeographed, but under the guidance of Cadet Kemble the publication gradually grew in size and quality, and proved itself worthy of a bigger field. The Forctop emerged from its chrysalis in October, 1923, as a monthly magazine on a par with other publications of the same nature. Throughout the year, despite the many hardships, lack of time, material, personnel, the Forctop continued to improve with each issue until it took its place with the leading college publications. The untiring efforts of the staff had borne fruit. ' V, On, ' Iniiulrcl ,in,t foil THE 1925 TID E RIPS EXECUTIVE STAFF A. Cahk(ii.i.

(To be sung to the tune of " Harrigan " by our famous bald headed trio, Jordan, Wood, and Thomas.) THE ARROW COLLAR MAN Aboard our ship, the " Alex Ham., " We boasted of him whom girls demand. He was tall and dark, with eyes so blue, With pride, indeed, we bring to you The Coast Guard ' s Arrow Collar Man. In every port he sheiked the femmes And broke the hearts of local men. For even Rudolph ' s far flung name Could not compare with all the fame Of the Coast Guard ' s Arrow Collar Man. His charming smile and luring w ' iles Were all a part of his winning guile, He looked at a girl, she was hypnotized. Even the officers locked up their wives From the Coast Guard ' s Arrow Collar Man. But we ' ll boast no more for quite awhile For we have no paragon of the latest style ; He ' s forsaken us for civilian life, And while we need no longer protect the wife We ' ve lost our Arrow Collar Man. ■4t ' - One hundred and Iwenty-mne ' • A 1F ■J One hundred and thirty TWENTY YEARS HENCE With the passage of time and the growinsf use of the expression " Now when I was a cadet, " reminiscences of bygone days will fill many wardroom " sessions " with experiences far more potent than the tales that graced the " bull fests " at the Academy. Weighted down with tlie gold of two and a half stripes, the responsibility of an executive officer, a mustache and a van dyke beard, Willie Kenner will regale the unsophisticated junior officers of his ship with the story of how Moodey, with a razor strap, used to make him recite " Willie, where is thy charming brother, etc. " Those were hard days. And his brother Frank will tell some other group of assembled listeners how, inspired by seeing Kohler and Forsytlie drive around in a Mercer, he resolved to some day " be a man. " Then the tales he ' ll tell about Cherbourg. Hirshfield is another one who will tell some vivid tales, especially of Paris, which will be highly colored and primed with age. And the budding ensigns will say, " I bet the skipper (Hirshfield) was a gay old dog in his day! " Richards, short and fat, with silver threads among the brown, will take some poverty stricken junior aside and confidentially say. " My boy, marriage is the only thing. Two can always live cheaper than one. Look at me. Come up tonight, and meet my daughter. " Leamy, with his heels digging a hole in the wardroom , table, will explain to an audience of admirers how his exemplary character, before becoming - - an officer, led him to be the unanimous choice for presi dent of the " V " club. To an inter- viewing reporter, Gelly, as the rising head of some wildcat brick concern, after twenty-three false starts in other professions, will say, " I attribute my present success to my popularity with my class at the Academy. They were always willing to criticize, and their remarks were ever a source of inspiration, help, and happiness to me. " That little fat, seagoing, salty Conway, as commandant of cadets, will walk up to some third classman lying in the waterway, and, kicking him in the ribs, will say, " Get up and turn to. What do you think this is, a yachting cruise? Seasickness is only a condition of the mind. " Wood and Jordan, getting together at a Cape May maneuver, will carefully count the hairs left on their respective heads " whereupon Becky will yell. " I ' ve got forty-nine left. Wood, one more than you. Hurray for Van Ess. " Collins, leaning back in the cabin of the " Modoc, " will remark to the officers of his ship, " Gentlemen, anybody can get a gold medal for lifesaving, but there are d few who can get one for singing in a choir. Look at this. " Transgressing into the private life of our class, we might tune in on the right wave length to pick this up, " I tell you dear, I never knew a girl named Murphy, and even if I did, you know, little sweetheart, that as sure as I ' m a Swede, you ' re the only one I ever cared for. " Speaking of home life, won t the wardroom gossips rave when they hear that Raney, coming home from a long ' cruise and finding a certain calling card in the card tray, went out and shot Charlie Lawson? Rountree as a sedate old bachelor will try to corner the younger officers into single blessedness by singing the old song, " And a red-headed woman made a fool out of me. Berdine, pointing to his thirteen children, will likewise blame all his trouble on a woman As time dims our memories and we forget just what football teams we did play Carlstedt will relate to his admiring juniors how just as he was about to cross Yale s goa hne for the wmrnng touchdown, after running ninety-eight yards through a broken fie d, the whole . 1 J even jumped on him and broke his leg. At the same time Byrd will chime ' " -f J " ; °; ' ° how he helped to make the Academy baseball team champions of England, Scotland Wales and suburbs. Perkins, in charge of C. R. at Headquarters, will mamtam that a ship with a jello bow, nine decks and no bottom would be just as practical as a steel ship and more efficient, since there would be less resistance to the water. B ut poor Swicegood. Way up One hundred and Ihii ly-foiir in Alaskan waters, he will look at the hundred pound cake of ice that formed on his feet during the night and then ring for the cabin boy to come and carry it out, remarking soulfully, " Why in h didn ' t I stay in Georgia? " Thomas ' wife will answer with a meek " Yes, Charles, " when he says in a stern voice " Barbara, didn ' t I tell you that unless we have compan. -. never have more than three pork chops for supper, one for me, a half for you, and one and a half for the nine children? " For myself, my only prayer is that when I remark to my audience, " Now outside of myself no one in my class ever really worked ; I always tended the weather braces, set the topgallant alone, and only used to take one third classman aloft to furl the foresail ; he held the bights as I hauled them up. I always used the heaviest holystone and many is the time that I scrubbed down alone, " tlicre will be none of my class present to remark, " And the prisoners answered ■ . " ECHOES " Gentlemen, you may applaud. " " What am I supposed to be; an ouija board? " " Somebody ' s talking. " " I don ' t know, but I ' ll find out. " " Hey, Biscuit! Cassie ' s comin ' up the harbor. " " That ' s all right, too. " " Sir, all present or accounted for. " " I heard what you said. It wasn ' t nice, either. " " How many ' scudos? " " In pla-a-a-a-ce, HALT ! " " Kenner, that will cost you ten. " " Hoist tlie red flag. " " When I was a cadet. " " Gentlemen, give me your attention a moment. " " However, be tliat as it may, etc. " " My name is Clarence, but the boys call me Pete. " " The cadets are invited and will attend. " " Coming down on the red lead. " " That ' s notliing to write home about. " " On behalf of the cadets and myself, I wish to thank you, etc ' " Hey, Wife, have you done the first one? " " Check off another half dollar. " " Oceans of love, and a kiss on every wave. " " Oh, about forty yards. " (20 up and 20 down.) " Seasickness a condition of the mind? " " How many is more days?

' ' ll ' One hundred and thirty-eight 1. s . . r Tilt ' TiDH Rirs is about complete and just as wc gave a foreword at tlic beginning, we now give an afterword at the end. In the foreword we inclined to brevity and abstained from describing our book in order that the reader might not be prejudiced. We desired to have the Tide Rips judged on merit alone. We now refrain from explanations of our methods or alibis for our mistakes. If you like this issue of TiiiE Rips, we are glad. If you do not like it, we are sorry. If you would praise it, then your plaudits should go to the Academy, because it was for the honor and glory of our Ahna Mater that we made the effort. And lastly, if you would censure this edition, criticize the staff alone, because the publication of this class book is not a school activity, but an individual project sponsored by the class of 1925. Though a class publication, it has been as infeasible to confine the material to the class alone as it would have been to print the book for the class alone. Valuable assistance and suggestions have been received from throughout the Service and elsewhere. The composition of the Tide Rips is sufficiently cosmopolitan that interest in it should not be confined, and we trust that there is a degree of variety w-hich will obviate any danger of monotony. If we have succeeded, as we trust we have, in eliminating local interest and monotony, then we are indebted to our aids and friendly critics for something which we ourselves could not have accomplished. It would, indeed, have been impossible for the class alone to edit the book and, in view of this, the class of 1925 avails itself of this opportunity to express its appreciation to the following: To the Cadet Corps, for its whole-hearted support. To the Officers of the Service, both on duty at the Academy and elsewhere, for their interest and assistance. To Cadet J. Marvin ?Iall, Third Class, for art work and drawing done at the expense of his own time and often under the most trying circumstances. To Cadet William Thompson, Second Class, for secretarial work of great value. To Ensign Frederick R. Baily, for the cartoons accompanying the personal histories of the Class of 1925. To Miss Bcrnice L. Marron, for four of the inserts and for the creation of a style which was adopted for all the inserts. To the American Engraving Company, for their personal interest in the hook and their highly commendable work in artistically mounting our pictures. To The Tuttle, Morehouse Taylor Company, for their aid in printing Tiije Rips as well as their valuable suggestions in the composition of the book. And to our advertisers, whose cooperation has made the financing of this book possible. We invite your attention to the names of the firms, in the next section of Tide Rips, who have subscribed to our class book.

It represents the utmost in scientific research and knowledge. It insures cleaner clothes than any method of home washing can produce, with less wear and tear than when a washboard is used. Six hot rinses at a temperature of 180 degrees assures that not a speck of soap or foreign matter of any kind is left in the wash. Of great significance also is the fact that no acids or chemicals are used which can in any way harm any fabric. Furiher, the process is absolutely harmless to all fast colors. The Wash- Rite System not only assures cleaner clothes, but absolute sanitation and sterilization, two essentials which mean much to every thoughtful person. Cordially yours, THE PEQUOT LAUNDRY, INC.

The initials of a friend You will find these letters on many tools by which elec- tricity works. They are on great generators used by electric light and power companies; and on lamps that light millions of homes. They are on big motors that pull railway trains; and on tiny motors that make hard housework easy. By such tools electricity dispels the dark and lifts heavy burdens from human shoulders.
