" I DONALD THOMAS ADAMS WaCHAPREAGUE, ViRCilNIA i- l HI () V, 111 the name of all the gods at mice, upon what meat does this our Adams feed, that he is grown so great? " To answer would be futile, for does not tie world know that this pugnacious son of Vir- ginia is not a meat-eater, but a Chesapeake Bay fish-eater. The sentiment paraphrased above, with apologies where apologies are due, of course, would tend to suggest a character some- what less than immortal. Such, we beg leave f. maintain, is not the case, for do not the Imlays speak only with the Adamses and the A lamses speak only with God ? An end to the persiflage, however. Don, early in his first class year, had a grave responsibil ' ty thrust upon him — a responsibility under which many a lesser man might have quailed — that of Battalion Commander — with all its attendant onerous and trivial duties. He has handled it nobly. Beset with irritation from every side, he has lent his best efforts to the fur- therance of an order of things calculated to drag us bodily from the slough of despond, purge us of all manner of impairments, and land us chastened and unsullied on the high- grounds of military regeneration. That Utopia may not be achieved in one solitary bound was as equally immaterial to Don as to others. The rest is history. " Punk, " as Adams is known upon the rarest of rare occasions, leaves us with memories of a multiplicity of much-to-be-envied escapades. His adventures in Marseilles ure paralleled only by his phenomenal success in preventing their being noised abroad. For, we assure you, were it to be discovered what a rip-roaring he- man this Adams is, utter consternation wouKi reign in the ranks of the holy. The prose .. tion rests !

Family legend has it that one of Toe ' s forbears was scared by a vaudeville per- former. His agonized interpretation of some sentimental ballad has often caused tears of pity. We must, however, give him credit for one thing — his courage and perseverance is without end. He continues his yodelling against all odds and refuses to be piped down. Consequently, we find him in his first class year the untroubled manager of ' Varsity Bas- ketball. His song is as blissful as ever, though a bit more throaty. For is it not well known that, when he should have turned one in, he drew one instead? That Joe should find an outlet for his ro- mantic nature was inevitable. But that he should find two was a bit beyond our expecta- tions! So far as we can see, it ' s ' W ' ellesley versus Connecticut in the battle royal for his pleasant favors. Our advice remains as ever, " knock ' em together, Joe.

This has been evident to us each and all, since the dear, departed days when we were " swabs " on the " Ham. " Since then we ' ve done our noblest to understand him, but failure has been our lot. Whether it is his never-absent temperament linked hand-in-hand with a heart overflowing with the juice of human kindness or his sporadic pursuit of the good and beau- tiful that have ever made him the same old, mysterious " Tex, " we know not. It has only remained for us to accept him, and that wc have, for the fine fellow and genial companion that he is! " Texas ' " career at the Academy started ofT with a bang, in fact, with a series of bangs, for he was ever wont to " give them both bar- rels. " He has been banging ever since. The true climax of his career may well be said to have come in Antwerp. His conquests there are without parallel. " Texas " has been the guiding spirit in many worth while move- ments. His masterful handling of the involved activities of the dance and social committees is deserving o. ' the highest praise. The Glee Club, through his untiring eflorts, has become a distinctive and integral feature of Academic endeavor. The future can only hold success in store for " Tex. " There can be no other goal for one quite so inherently conscientious and will- ing to sacrifice self for achievement. He failed once — he was unable to procure a matron of some sort to serve us coffee and doughnuts during study hour. Chairman Dance Commitlee (1) President Glee Club ( 1 ) Cide!

" Little did realize that when, in a hu- manitarian spirit, he tried to cheer the poor unfortunates who, on the cruise, were afflicted with that delightful disease termed mal-de-mer, he would be on the other end of the boomerang. Wackie is perhaps the most serene, the most imperturbable person one could imagine. He absolutely can not be hurried. The only time he shows evidence of speed is when he steps on the basketball or tennis courts. After two years of class basketball, Walter ended up by playing his final year as a member of the Var- sity. Let us pass lightly over his social career. " Expense? — Hang the expense! " His utter dis- regard of financial hindrances when in the company of the fairer sex has endeared him to the hearts of maidens for miles around and has gained for him the epithet of " Big Time Charlie. " " W. W. " has the happy faculty of acclimat- ing himself to conditions and obtaining the best possible results from the facilities placed at his disposal. He abides in a spirit of doubt until his doubts are dispelled. While slow to accept, he is at the same time unusually retentive. It is said that curiosity is the basis of the progress of civilization. If this be true, cer- tainly Walter ' s questioning nature indicates a constructiveness and progressiveness to be ad- mired.

His inherent reserve and dignity have never left him. Incidentally, he possesses a keen sense of humor and an evenness of tem- per which has made him a most agreeable person. Discourse is good, but silence is bet- ter and shames it. Herein lies a part of Jim- mie ' s success. James combines studiousness and ability very satisfactorily. In fact, he climbed the ladder of scholarly attainment until he reached within a very few rungs of the top. His ac- complishments are the more striking because of his unobtrusiveness and inconspicuousness. James belongs to that comparatively rare spe- cies, the Red Mike; takes a decided interest in athletics, and goes to church regularly. Surely, a man of such predilections will neces- sarily succeed. There are those of us who are spontaneous and sporadic. There are others who plod along steadily, unnoticed by the crowd, con- tent in the satisfaction of the consistent suc- cess of their personal performances. To this latter group belongs Jimmie. Never spectacu- lar, shunning ostentation, he has ever proven himself a reliance in time of stress and a source of sound advice. Class Football ( 3 ) ( 2 ) ( 1 ) Class Crew ( 3 ) ( 2 ) (1) • ANTHONY JAMES DeJOY Little Rock, Arkansas VANITY, vanity, all is vanity. Such sleek hair, such smooth skin, such gleaming teeth are not entirely the gift of nature. Can one imagine such an incongruity as Jim- mie without his comb and mirror? It is true that James takes a decided interest in his personal appearance, but certainly that is a most estimable quality. Unquestionably the girls are attracted by one who never forgets his Paris Garters. For the triumph of a Don Juan, publicity is necessary, but Jimmie asks for secrecy. " Never disclose the lady ' s name " is his motto. How- ever, a comparison cannot be fairly made, for in the great market place of love, Don Juan is a wicked merchant who takes all and pays for nothing, while Jimmie has always been (true to the traditions of the Service) a gen- tleman and a man of honor. However, James ' conquests have not been social alone. Decided military attributes, which gained for him the command of a pla- toon, an intense curiosity for things academic, and general officer-like qualities contribute to Jimmie ' s success. There is no doubt that this success will follow him in the Service. Ptatton Leader Class Football (3) (2) (1) Cadet Cruise (3) (2) ¥ THEODORE JOSEPH FABIK Blasdell, New York SELF-CONFIDENCE fairly oozes trom this product of the Empire State. There is no job too difficult for him to tackle. If you are not convinced, just ask him. But do not be too inquisitive, lest his modesty be overcome and a veritable Dick Merriwell be unleashed. Ted is not averse toi matching story for story with any man, particularly in accounts of ath- letic prowess. It is upon the basketball court that he has found peculiar self-realization. He claims to have played basketball as soon as he was old enough to walk. Even as an infant in arms, he used to dribble regularly! Be that as it may, we have found Ted to be one bang-up guard, and his departure will be sorely felt in years to come. During his first diss year, Ted uncovered a bit of unexpected brilliance as far as academics were concerned. For him Steam held no ter- rors, while Ordnance and Ballistics were pure gravy. Now that he has hit his stride, he will, as our Limey brethren have it, take quite a bit of stopping. We reserve the right, however, to handle him ourselves if he ever pulls an- other moustache on us.

" Boxing squad take a hot shower! " Thus does Jack proclaim himself as the tender and efficient ministrator of the nose deflectors. As boxing manager, he worked with his charges with all the sympathy of a young mother. His advice and encouragement often made a losing fighter — er — continue his good work. The Nutmeg State claims Jack, or perhaps we should say. Jack claims Connecticut as his home. Anyway, he hails from historic New England, famous for its accent and its hams. Either Jack disliked baggy trousers, or brass buttons had a glittering appeal, for he for- sook college and chose " ole debbil sea. " The wisdom of his choice is evidenced by the suc- cess already achieved at this early stage of his career. With all the requisite qualifications neces- sary for a competent officer, the rumbling voice of a bosun ' s mate on a cattle ship, and the preoccupied contentment of a man who has found his niche, Jack should find a natural place on any seagoing vessel.

No more familiar introduction could be given Bob than the words which he used to introduce himself to the upper classmen during his first year at the Academy. A south wind brought Bob and with him something which might generally be classified as Southern hospitality. His decided Dixie accent, obligmg manner, and cheerful disposition made Bob Grantham — well. Bob Grantham. Bob gives his best in every worthwhile en- deavor. Whether it be in the field of sport or in some part of his professional duty. Whether he be in the stands or in the game, he can be counted upon for whole-hearted support. In- cidentally, Bob has been a member of the varsity basketball squad for the past three years. Robert L. departs from the confines of the Academy after a period of most faithful en- deavor. He is white clear through, simply because he knows not how to be otherwise. For a pal he will go the limit. His heart and his pocketbook have ever been open to us all. In the long years to come, bringing with them mellowed memories of our cadet days, there will loom one figure, staunch and loyal, — Granth.mi!

' humor are entirely nat- ural. Not only does Ted possess the outward pre- requisites of a clergyman, but he also has that high sense of honor and duty which is so nec- essary to one in any responsible position. When Ted makes a statement, its veracity can be accepted without question. He rarely jokes. When he is given a job to do, he does it thor- oughly to the best of his ability. To be brief, Ted is dependable. Ted ' s taciturnity finds an outlet in athletics. No longer is he the quiet, reserved lad, but an opponent with whom to be reckoned. In his first class year, his work at end on the football squad was noteworthy until an injury incapacitated him for the remainder of the season. Although captain of the basket- ball team, he was prevented from playing his usual stellar game at guard by the same injury until quite late in the season. Ever willing to lend a helping hand, and with an unfailing source of energy for work and play, he has found a secure place in the hearts of all who know him.

Jacl is never unhappy when he has cause for com plaint. His discontented mutterings and long winded arguments are one of the delightful diversions of study hour. Nevertheless, Jack has managed to live through all his afflictions, real or pretended. Maryland contributed John and with him a voice whose peculiar intonation and piercing qualities are distinctive, to say the least. As company Sub-Commander, Jack found good use for such a physical attribute. It would be scarcely possible to mention Jack ' s name without referring to Bob Gran- tham as well. This pair have been as insep- arable as the well known Gold Dust Twins. These two have contrived to do considerable damage to the mental equilibrium of the New London feminine population, but always with a finesse which never fails to bring them back for more. A deeper insight into Jack ' s character dis- closes him to be capable, likable and cool- headed. He is the possessor of a nature suffi- ciently discerning as to be not at all beclouded by his ineffable proclivity for gross exaggera- tion. Yet, we find him not without a cer- tain definite weakness — he must have his ' woo- fer ' during study hour, cost him what it may! Company Sub-ComtnauJer Class Football (2) (1) Rifle Sharpshooter (2) (1) k EDWARD TWYMAN HODGES Washington, D. C. " Q. 1 UEL age avez-vous? " is the usual question asked Eddie by the local femmes upon having him presented. It is a sore point with Edward to have the maternal mstinct in women brought to the sur- face by his boyish appearance. His attempts to increase his age have proven futile, much to his disgust. Consequently, Eddie is just awaiting the time when he can grow a mus- tache and fool humanity at large. We might look for a different person in one possessed of such handsome features and youthful charm, but Ed is very matter-of-fact, with a generous amount of independence and common sense. His class standing is a fair indication of his ability, although his studious efforts were often very intermittent. His fortitude at the gaming table should not escape our notice. One of a brace of four ignoble inveterates, he has wooed the paste- boards, but wooed them in vain. For a few merry weeks, he and Ralph Smith were in- structed in the more abstruse phases of bridge as she is played in the " Country Club, " much to the edification and financial benefit of that dirty pair of card sharpers, Synon and " Wackie. " And then, as the two victims be- gan to feel their way more cautiously and to bring a well timed rally into existence — came the dawn of a new era — and with it — Har- wood ! But that is another story, and one of sad, sad memories. Chiu Foo kill (2) (1) C:Je Criuse (3) (2) Rifle Sharpihonter RINHOLD ROGER JOHNSON Green Bay, Wisconsin THE word " fastidious " fairly describes Roger. His tie must be just so; his hair must be sleel;; his fork must be held ill the prescribed manner. It would be no ex- aggeration to say he is dainty. Unquestion- ably he is mother ' s favorite. Realizing all this, we find Roger assuming a bass voice and a gruff demeanor, the better to belie his natural temperament. However, his determined efTort to overcome a sweet voice has proved in vain. It is doubtful if Roger ever received enough sleep. As a guide, he more nearly approaches a sleep-wilker. Mr. Murray ' s rL-iss became his favorite siesta period. Roger has never been examined for sleeping sickness but it might be worthwhile. " Sleepy ' s " love aflFairs have been rather spasmodic. Whether this re- sulted intentionally or not is problematical. Nevertheless, the fact remains that Roger failed to accept the opportunities which his hand- some physique seems to warrant. Having been brought up in a Coast Guard atmosphere, it was perfectly natural that Roger should choose the Service as a career. Since our " Swab " days, he has been our criterion for the " Great Lakes Seaman " and our Lord High Advisor upon the handling of a small boat in a summer breeze.

John claims no rela- tionship to Mayevski or Kosciusko, but nevertheless he has that same valiant, adventurous and romantic spirit. It was no retiring, unsocial nature that gained for him the appropriate appellation, " New London ' s Sweetheart, " or " The Wrestler of the New Jersey Mud Flats. " His numerous love affairs are current topics of conversation. As an enthusiastic exponent of the dance, " Skee ' has few equals. Ted Shawn and Ar- thur Murray look to their laurels when John R. glides gracefully across the floor. In other words, " Skee " is the world ' s champion " Red Mike, " and finds dancing entirely unnecessary. For him the gods created " Wackie " — " W ' ackie, ■ whom he greatly maligns yet loves dearly as a brother; ' " Wackie, " the foil for his wit, the outlet for his ever-fertile imagination and the pack-horse for his unceasing chatter. For without " Wackie, " Kurcheski will be Kur- cheski no more, and the most divine combina- tion since Heloise and Abelard will be at an end. Class Football (3) (2) (1) Fencing ( 1 ) GEORGE ROWELL LESLIE Chicago, Illinois HE Climes, the spirit of the dance! And but for those large, eloquent eyes, where passion speaks in every glance, he ' d seem a wanderer from the skies (with apolo- gies to somebody or other). George, the mighty atom, peers knowingly at the world through eyes whose roguish twinkle is positively fetching. " G. R. " strives for sophistication, but his simplicity gives one the impression of stark puerility. Slight ec- centricities of mind and manner combine to make him individualistic, to say the least. George is salty. Ask the Midshipman who rode on the same train with him during his first Sep-Leave. " G. R. ' s " " Lay aft to the gal- ley, " etc. has become a byword. Lack of size proved to be a severe handicap to George in athletics. However, with the ad- vent of fencing at the Academy, he found a sport to his liking and succeeded in gaining the captaincy of the team during his first class year. If " G. R. " were called upon to give the secret of his success, he could answer in all sincerity, " Devotion to duty, perseverance, and satisfaction in seeing a job well done. " Fencine. Captain (1) Clan Football (2) (1) GILBERT IRVING LYNCH Methuen, Massachusetts NOTWITHSTANDING his earnest en- deavors to convince us, we still mistrust the authenticity of Lynch ' s statement that the sun rises and sets in Boston. There are those among us quite ready to take up their cudgels in behalf of the fact that, for days at a time, the sun never appears anywhere near Boston. These doubters " Gibby " has ever met with his particular brand of fortitude which has won for him the admiration of us all. The evidences of his courage and stamina are recorded most correctly, perhaps, in the recent annals of varsity football and boxing al the Academy, his gameness and fighting- heart serving ever to reanimate the flagging spirits of his teammates. Lynch may not be properly termed an e.xact specimen of a " snake. " Rather is he an ex- ample of steadfast constancy. Perhaps this may explain his peculiar affinity for Boston and all that goes with it. Certainly his fre- quent importation of the same fair damsel to many of our functions has disclosed the wis- dom of his behavior. Examine his features closely. Can it be believed that he must be without his seamy side? Hardly! Such eyes — such ears — such nose — never could lead us to believe we are dealing with a model of propriety or a paragon of virtue. Further inferences are unnecessary. We know him for what he is — the bounder! That ' s why we made him class president.

" It is extremely dubious whether the con- centrated attention given to " MiUy ' s " love life by his classmates is a brotherly interest. At least he doesn ' t accept and appreciate it as such, but what man would? Many are the suggestions offered, from love philters to a pri- vate telephone extension, but from all indica- tions " Milly " needs no assistance and desires none. Walter early acquired the habit of study, but we fear the motive was slightly selfish. Let the secret be divulged. He is a liberty hound! Hence he endeavored to keep just a little ahead of his studies so that every precious mo- ment of liberty might be enjoyed to its fullest extent. VCalter received his introduction to the mighty deep as a " swab " aboard the " ALEX HAM. " It was only a short cruise in the Sound, but the results proved to be rather disastrous for " Milly. " Thereafter his repu- tation was established, no matter how salty the angle at which he wore his cap. A good word for everybody, a cheery dispo- sition, which few can surpass, makes him a true-blue friend and companion. If the past betokens the future, success fully deserved will surely be his. Cadet Cruise ( i ) ( 2 ) Class Football (3) (2) (1) • • EMIL ALFRED PEARSON Seattle, Washington EMIL has wittingly ur unwittingly made himself a name which has stuck. The " Ghost " moves with all the noise and abandon of a cat. His feline movements are almost uncanny. To hear Emil coming or going, one must see him. However, far be it from us to begrudge what little fun he might derive from playing amateur detective. Emil merely replaces the " Pap Book " for the fa- miliar microscope of Sherlock. " The Skipper, " as he is affectionately called by his intimates, possessed at least a slight encrustation of salt before entering the acad- emy, having seen service in the merchant ma- rine. His liking for the sea and its lore is acknowledged. It is unnecessary to cite the many instances when he assumed the duties of coxswain and boat officer on the cruise, the innumerable sailing parties which he has taken on the historic Thames, and the keen interest which he displays in Seamanship in general. The " Skipper " possesses, as his most out- standing quality, a sober appreciation of fair-play that will go far toward tempering his inexorable and relentless pursuit of male- factors of all classes. We can easily envision him in years to come as the Judge High Ad- vocate of a great court, on the trial of a lone and friendless second classman. " Ten years at hard labor, " cries the " Skipper. " " No knife at Seamanship drill! " Djnce Committee (2) (1) OSCAR CARL ROHNKE Jersey City, New Jersey IT would be futile to attempt to account for Gus ' s idiosyncrasies. Some try to explain It by saying he got that way from trying to live down the fact that he is from New Jersey — others merely say, " Punch Drunk. " and let it go at that. His " Joisey " accent, together with his mastery of pantomine, makes him more popular than the man who took piano lessons by correspondence. NX ' e can ' t blame Gus if he shadow-boxes in his sleep. After three years in the ring, any- one is li.ible to develop similar oddities. In- cidentally, he led the mittmen last season. His unusual port-wheeler style proved strangely disconcerting to his opponents. By means of his still cleverer foot-work, he has managed to sidestep vindictive officialdom, particularly as a second classman, upon any and all occasions. Shrewdly handled by his manager. Lynch, he was found to be more than a match for the combined forces of the Paris Surete and the Ocean Beach constabulary. While Gus could not be called a Casanova, he is nut averse to glorifying the American girl. However, it is possible that his style has been slightly cramped by a little girl back home. Gus has the humor, the optimism, the de- termination, and, above all, the fight which is necessary in the three years ' struggle for the survival of the fittest. He has not only sur- vived, but has emerged from the fray with the beaming countenance of a ten-year-old school boy, who, upon being presented with a bright new dollar, has been directed to treat it as he may.

No, this is nut Lon Chaney, although the resemblance is, perhaps, striking. Un- doubtedly handsome Dick might have made a name for himself behind the " Klieg lights, " but his aspirations were higher. Per- haps Adolphe Menjou bribed him — who knows? At any rate the " Admiral " chose the Coast Guard as that medium through which he might best perpetuate his peculiar potentialities upon an unsuspecting universe. Dick has repeatedly demonstrated his execu- tive ability and sound thinking during his three years as a cadet. While not particularly " snaky, " the Admiral has, because of a natu- ral smoothness, become a welcome addition to any social affair. A genial and a cheerful dis- position are synonymous with Schmidtman. At times we have suspected Dick of a slight measure of reticence — even to the extent of holding out on us. Yet, we take him to our bosoms and forgive all, for do not those who walk so closely with the gods, develop, of ne- cessity, some of the godly attributes? Dick ' s courage, dependability, common sense and impartiality are recognized. He is as square as a die. He has ever chosen the course he believed to be right and followed it doggedly, regardless of bias or personal interest. Occasionally his hot Teutonic blood has sprung to the fore, and beaten him a bit to leeward, but just as often has he risen above it and emerged the same smiling, unperturbed reveller in the pleasures of the day !

Gaze at these classic features and endeavor to im- agine the difficulties of the poor photographer. Appearances are, however, quite deceiving. This enterprising " Southern Gentleman " com- bines in himself the loyalty of a Brutus, the penury of a Shylock and the bombast of a Mussolini. Certainly such versatility is un- usual in one so young! Whether an extem- poraneous speech or the adroit service of an unmatched sea-lawyer is required, George can be expected to handle the situation advan- tageously. His sensational entrance into the Academy will be well remembered. For a time we were undecided as to whether or not Bobby Jones had inadvertently wandered on the reser- vation. A quick exchange of golf-clubs for a rifle convinced us, however, that George Den- ver was truly one of us. Through the years Academics have interested him but incidentally. The fabric of his nature is of a texture far too esoteric to concern him with the trivialities of the hour. People do say he has " a certain someone. " Could it be otherwise? Be that as it may, we have found George consistently to be a real leader and classmate, who will be an equally good shipmate.

The etficiency of independence has often been proclaimed by men supposedly wise. Freddie has expressed his individuality innumerable times and apparently has never suffered as a result. In fact, the reverse effect has been produced. Freddie has a strong will. When he gets an idea into his head, he invariably carries it to its utmost conclusion, and spares no neces- sary argument in doing so. Although inclined to be dominating, this dominance is so closely allied to practical common sense that the result is one which rarely arouses anything but the most intense loyalty on the part of his associates. " Oscar " is possessed of that comparatively rare faculty, the power to reason. His high academic standing is an excellent confirmation of this fact. Likewise, he is fearless and deter- mined, not only in his reasoning, but in the practical application of his conclusions. An alert mind, a high sense of duty, and finally, initiative, all culminate in Freddie ' s outstanding quality — leadership. Advertising Manager. Tide Rips H) Business Manager.

" A mighty bellow on the football field — a tower of strength on the basketball court — a martinet on the drill-field — all in vivid relief against the background of his self-confessed talent for adagio dancing and a deep-seated appreciation of the more highly technical phases of Faust and La Bohcme ! Where would we be without him ! How could we endure without his thrilling tales of skiing on the Swiss Alps or of motor- cycling through Italy? He came to us a man apart, bestowing graciously upon us the asso- ciation of one tutored in the ways of the Old World and yet replete with the sophistication and subtlety of the true cosmopolite. But, alas, we have taken him for what he is — boyish and ingenuous beneath it all ! As an athlete, Karl is perhaps the most versatile the Corps has included for many years. He captained a successful football team and his size and skill gained for him for two seasons the position of center on the varsity basketball team. He swims and dives equally well. He plays a stellar game of tennis and his skill as an ice-skater is not to be t.aken lightly. Rumor has it, too, that he plays with the hearts of women, but Karl stoutly denies the allegation. He has ever been a student of life, this " Hitler. " Dickens and Rabelais have consist- ently held greater charm for him than Carnot or Diesel, and consequently his academic live- lihood has been made possible, not by appli- cation, but by an inherent brilliance. We rest confident, however, that whatever difficulties may in future bestrew the Hitlerian path will be surmounted in a fashion truly worthy of a scion of Bismarck and Attilla.

True memories mix with the host of glamorous untruths that time inevitably fabricates. We clutch avidly at some, leaving others in disregard. Yet, ignore them as we may, these latter reminders of past unpleasantness settle, in their dull fashion, into the valleys of memory to dim the triumphs of happier days. In our present narrative we hope to march ever onward from one gay episode to another, avoiding the by-ways of indignant recollection; we shall endeavor to skip lightly from crag to crag, avoid- ing the pitfalls of frustrated hope. Yet if Fate decrees our foot to slip, and we plunge bodily into a yawning chasm of acrimony — your indulgence, amiable reader, we do implore! Possibly the most noteworthy item with regard to our introduction to the Academy proper, back in the dark, dismal days while we were still civilians, was the manner of our coming. Upon three different days, each a week apart, the arriving Philistines trod from the Academy gate to the dock where lay, with her own air of departed dignity, the once-famed barkentine, " Alexander Hamilton " , her topless spars, upon which we were later destined to " spike our hats " , towering it seemed, hundreds of feet above the murky waters of the Thames. It was i;i this ship that we were to live for the better part of a month — in her that we were to concern ourselves with the respective attributes of square-knots and stoop-falls, holy-stoning and cold showers at three a. m. By the end of " swab-summer " and the return of the upper classes from leave, we were comfortably ensconced in the newly renovated barracks. And then the Inquisition commenced! ( It has not ceased. ■ ■ . ) Through it all we had the confident knowledge that our heads were bloody but unbowed — and thanked 1 Happy days on the " Ham " High Heaven for our unconquerable abil- ity to " coast " and " gold-brick " . We reached the stage at which we " knocked- off fifty " or did a couple of hundred rifle sweeps without batting an eye. Sitting on infinity became a pleasure and knee bends a joy to experience. Strange to say, we became more " ratey " by the hour — or so they told us. Meanwhile our inter- ests lay in perfecting an instrument of mayhem and vengeance, a class football team. Its crashing administration of legalized violence offered some slight balm to our wounded spirits. We rapidly became F. U. J. I. G. M. {Semper Pm- atiii ) . So progressed the year. Its monot- ony was interrupted by Christmas leave and a fly-by-night jaunt to Norwich. The former was divine, while the latter was just a bit too horsey to compensate for the loss of a football game. At mid-year ' s we were to taste the first draft of that bitter potion, academic failure, which has so definitely contributed to the mortality rate of the class of ' thirty-two. Once seventy-two strong, a bare handful of twenty-eight remain to congratulate one another upon their peculiar abilities to contain themselves within that circum- spect boundary from which there is pardoned no deviation. — And thus we came to Graduation and the Cruise. Perhaps there are some chapters of the latter that had best be treated in a superficial manner, — others mentioned not at all. What a cadet may experience upon a foreign cruise, we stoutly maintain, is his business and his alone, provided always, that he exercises caution and judgment in the selection of a theatre of operations. Carelessness in this respect may fling him face to face with some particular dignitaty of his acquaintance who may little relish the flavor of the encounter. It is in cases of this kind that a tacit understanding and a beautiful, though sometimes fragile, forbearance results. Cruise number one found us lacking certain of the fundamentals in some respects but especially adapted and gifted as to others. Undiscovered talent con- tinued to remain undiscovered on the right hand while undreamed-of abilities were uncorked on the left. (We use the term advisedly. . . . ) Romance and high adventure lurked in wait for even the most prosaic of us. Liberty was precious and its delights manifold — the hey-day of " free gangway for the watch that rates it " was still existant — and that sorry curtain of " restricted men to muster " had not yet been rung down. Running boats did double duty, and the liberty list became a scratch pad. Who were we to stay aboard? Life at best is all too short. Lest there be among ye, however, one who would care to cast a stone — we beg humble leave to dispel his misgivings. Entertain brother, not one shade of doubt nor the first faint glimmering of prejudice. Be pleased to recall that, we were but a flock of rollicking young roosters temporarily loosed from what seemed a most rigorous and confining existence. A different demeanor would have been a sad commentary upon the vaunted spontaneity and exuberance of the young seafaring man the world over. Thus, we progressed — we expanded — we became citizens of the universe, quitting each port just a little less ingenuous than before. Our return to America found us well plastered with the bland complacency of sophisticated world travellers, which, indeed, we thought we were. The story goes on. Of our second class year we care to record — nothing! We discovered that the flow was downhill and continuous. We were second classmen and endowed solely with the rights and privileges of that perennially sorry company. We had recourse only to one staunch friend, the value of whose sympathetic concern for our welfare has been sorely missed through the troublous year that has followed. His unerring discrimination and his uncanny genius for management constitute a criterion by which his successors will be measured. We can only say that in our esteem he stands alone. More is needless Finally we came to the dawn of another " noble experiment " . It appeared upon the horizon like the first crack of dawn, sublime and unafraid. Gradually it rose, resplendent in a realm of sycophancy, only to become clouded at its zenith and to fade on the far side of the Academic sky. Sliicll) coiilidenlhil We shrug our shoulders. What of it? As Lucrezia Borgia whispered so aptly to Alphonso of Aragon, " It ' s all in fun! " — Fun! We ' ve had so much of it! W ' c were bound to, even at the darkest times. We have been particularly for- tunate in our appreciation of the ridicu- lous. The droll, the laughable, has ever maintained a paramount position in our blithe array of memories. The recollec- tion of what single event can afford one nearly so much pleasure as that of " Mr. Lynch, bring your supply of beans to me!

And things once so revolting, now take a different light " Perhaps, " you murmur with a smile, " that Hell was quite all right. " I know that those who ' ve made a cruise will all with me agree. And likewise those who ' ll make their first, my point are bound to see. For every day of Hell you ' ve seen, for every gripe you ' ve had, A memory dear now lingers clear; it ' s good instead of bad. Now when you ' re out there on the deep, and feeling glum and low, A midwatch lingers on your hands, and gosh, it linge rs, so. It ' s hard to find some joy in thought, and all you do is gripe. The growing root of discontent first mellows, then turns ripe. You never see the stars above, on velvet curtain laid; You never feel the cool night breeze that o ' er the sea has strayed; You can ' t absorb the solitude that comes with night out there; Your every thought ' s of discontent, and all the world ' s unfair. You ' re thinking of those bells to come, and not the stars above; You ' re thinking of that bunk below, and not the girl you love. Your feelings seem to curdle, and you ' re chewing on your grief. And you mumble and you grumble, " where in Hell is my relief? " And when the bugle turns you out, you ' re feeling pretty tough. The night was short, the day is long, the water still is rough. You keep a groggy feeling through the long hours of the day; There ' s sharpness in your very tongue and in the words you say. You cannot feel the cooling breeze enhanced by noonday sun. You cannot feel the self -content that goes with work well done. You cannot see the rhythm smooth in rolling ocean swell. Your mind has made the day replete with Hell on Hell on Hell. And when you stow your gear at four and lay below to eat. And then go to the " rec " room where the best of gripers meet; There, bitter tales of woe are swapped and grousing reigns supreme, And all agree that it is Hell or just an ugly dream. Day in, day out, thru-out the cruise, these warped ideas flower; Your mind is sick within you, and you ' ve gone completely sour. One thought there is that wanders throughout your musty brain. It seems that all the world is wrong, and you ' re no longer sane. But now t he cruise is over, and I see the other side; The memories now are pleasant and with me will e ' er abide; I recognize the happy things that seem to satisfy. The gleam of sun on dark blue wave, the cloud so white and high. I think of pleasant evenings spent when toil of day is done. With pipe and book and chair atilt against the five-inch gun. The sun is sinking low, and so the night is soon to come; The cares of day are ended, and I have a song to hum. I think of nights, beneath the stars, spent sleeping out on deck; The waters turned to mellow pools, that beams of moon did check. I think of all that there I missed and all the gripes I had. And as they balance I conclude — " Those cruises weren ' t so bad! " Irvin J. Stephens, ' 32 ti First Class Daze George O. Olson, Tie.u nty Albert J. Carplntlr, Sfcreiary Class WiLLARD J.

And now, as our second class year draws to its conclusion, we break out our snapshot albums and try- to build up again those speeding days of our swab year. To us, while we were living them, those days were fraught with gripes, hardships, and foolishness. Now that we may look upon it from the lofty position of near first classmen, the swab year and the cruise are filmed over with the softening mist of Time; all of which lends a glamorous tone to the incidents of our first eighteen months at the Academy. Who of our numbers can forget those glorious August days before the return of the upper classes from the cruise, when a nightly concert and bull session raged in the first class rec room? Even then there were those among us con- scientious enough to practice square corners and gravely to sit upon three inches of chair in the mess hall. Long before the advent of the upperclassmen we had drawn our rifles, had become well acquainted with " Miss Springfield, " had been given signal drill and seamanship classes, and had valiantly sallied forth to " do " New London. Naturally enough, we saw the " snakes " rearing their ugly heads from the mass; and before long the snakes and red mikes had banded in their separate forts, though even now the ranks of the mikes are thinning, while a proportional gain is noted within the reptiles ' hangout. which is nght? On the twenty-seventh of August (fateful day) the CHAMPLAIN, bear- ing the first group of first and second classmen, arrived. The next morning the MENDOTA tied up at the State Pier, and from that time on our Swab year began in earnest, with a slight respite from the time the upperclasses shoved off on leave till their return on the twenty-first of September. A month, more or less, passed on winged feet, during which time we, the " lower than low, " the " not quite hu- man. " slowly and painfully learned the intricate machinery of the cadet life behind the front. Then passed, in rapid succession, the Hallowe ' en Masquerade Party, the thrill of our first " grades, " and the interclass football games. Late in November those hideous devices appellated " monkey jackets " were shaken lovingly from their hiding places and donned for the first time, by our almost sophisticated class, to be worn at " full dress social function number one. " We anticipated (and were not disappointed) a party the next morning in which our faults would be vividly presented, while our virtues, which we modestly but secretly believed to be far in excess of our shortcomings, were to be ignominiously pushed into the extreme background. The year having culminated in the " Cabaret " dance, those lucky enough to have homes inside the calling radius blithely left for their " podunks " — there to spend ten days telling the folks (and the girls) all about the arduous life of a Kaydet. The freedom of those ten days faded abruptly with the advent of the new year and the mid-year exams. It was shortly after January first that, during one of those then infrequent room inspections, a little known incident occurred that still is remembered by a few eye and ear witnesses at the scene of the crime. The Executive Officer entered suddenly a room in the Country Club, only to be offered a piece of Christmas cake by one of the surprised swabs within! From Mid-years to grad week seemed but a breath. Anticipation of the prac- tice cruise ran rife. Cries of " How many days? " held that expectant note character- istic of those who near a goal. Rehearsals for the Cadet Cruise took a large part .y The sniike jppcan of our spare time. The dullness of the long winter study imperceptibly merged into magnificent Spring days. Then, almost ■without warning, the short review and final exams were upon us, to be fol- lowed by the hectic days of grad week — the ground-breaking at the New Academy —the pulling and sailing races — the Ring dance — the graduation exercises — the Cruise — dinners — and finally, the Grad Hop. We were second classmen! Visions of the sea, Gibraltar, Constan- tinople, the Grecian Isle:, Marseilles, Egypt, bazaars — far-away places — all these filled our uninitiated minds, making us secretly impatient to be ofif. Our wishes were soon gratified. In two days we were aboard the practice cutters. Before the week was up we had anchored off Parris Island, South Carolina. Followed a month of firing, of working in the butts, of inspiring southern days and nights. Naturally enough, some of the snakes in our class prospected in town, with the consequent result that a dance was given and several dinners consumed, which made us grateful for that renowned South- ern Hospitality. Yes — we were sorry to leave Parris Island. In the next few days, however, we forgot the South, those of us who could, and turned our thoughts toward Europe. Of the remainder of the cruise we will pass over lightly. Suffice it to say that during the time we learned to tell a handybilly from a bicycle pump, the dif- ference between brightwork polish and " goldbricking, " the many and devious ways of a steam power plant and turbo-electric drive, how to launch a boat and pick it up on the high seas, the many customs aboard a seagoing vessel; in short we became acclimated, as it were, to our chosen profession. Add to this our varied experiences when ashore on liberty and that curious feeling in our throats as Montauk Point became visible — add these and you have a practice cruise almost in a nutshell. We say " almost " because there is that something about the cruise that cannot be conveyed by words. The luxury of lying in the sun on the fore- castle during noon hour; the thrill of spellbinding sunsets and deep quiet nights; the blue and gold of the water; the experience of meeting strange people ' of strange tongues, of bartering and hag- gling in out-of-the-way shops; the agony ,, . , I .1 ■ of being waked at eleven fifty to stand the Keeping accomU of things o : .: - w 1 r The str.ibs thought ivs ii ' en on a " hnat " mid watch at the wheel or in the crow ' s nest — these things and a hundred others go to make up that " something " about the cruise that cannot be set down on paper. Vague as they are, they constitute the buffer for each class; they are the test of the embryo officer — they make a second classman of the swab. Back from the cruise — a few weeks spent in gunnery with the ship ' s " artil- lery " — and we are off on September leave. The incoming class having had its welcome in our few days at the State Pier, they are forgotten by us completely in those rapturous days of our first Sep leave. But paradoxically, the glamour of two stripes is gone. We find that they mean more than privileges and rights — they mean an added responsibility, which somehow we divine is going to increase indefinitely as we advance from stage to stage. We become graver in our demeanor. We think seriously of studying, which is a good thing, for that occu- pation has assumed vast importance. Weekends now no longer mean glittering promises of liberty. We find our- selves on Saturdays and Sundays merely thinking of Thermo and Mechanics and Juice. Then, sometime before Christmas, comes that dangerous slump. We prepare our lessons less carefully, to dream faraway thoughts. After Christmas leave, during which time we relax and rather feverishly attempt to snatch each fleeting minute, we return to a new period. We study like maniacs, pass our midyears in a blaze of glory, perhaps, and, with the momentum thus acquired, scuttle through the final months, the preparations, our second ones this time, for the practice cruise, the play, and graduation week. How odd it all seems — to be looking upon the excitement of the new class of " almost third classmen " with that disinterested interest of amused spectators who have been through that part of the mill, at least!

Until the mid-year examinations of that first year we were members of the class of 1933, after which time we became the new fourth class, a thing of experiment and tryout, a class destined by the regulations to be a year junior to those whom we still consider in our hearts to be our classmates. Of course, we realize that our " bilging " was entirely due to ourselves, and so, gentle reader, you can see that our non-studying days are at end. We number, by actual count, eight members all told, and we determinedly expect to arrive at May, 1934, with just as many. (But enough of this idle chit-chati On with the history!) You all know of the sweet days of August before the practice squadron returned. It was during those days that our initiation into drill, rowing, forma- tions, and " goldbricking " was affected. Until September twenty-first, however, life was easy and pleasures many. On that date, the anthem of the second class, " Line up, gentlemen. Sep-leave is over, " was sung to us in gently increasing volume. Our introduction to New London society was accomplished by a tea dance, attended by all swabs with dates — " les belles dames sans merci. " That day the deed was done, the plunge taken, and from then on we swabs appropriated the majority of eligible " femmes, ' for, as you must know, patient reader, there are two things the swab alone rates to any appreciable extent — " femmes " and mail. Liberty days became as sweet to us as the promised lotus. On week days we attended classes, drilled, and toyed with an " unofficial course in physical edu- cation. " Some of us played football with the team and worked with the squad. Later on we displayed some talent in boxing, basketball and fencing. At night ' Siranfh n port we studied off and on. We listened to lectures, went on football trips, made our regular runs to the canteen, washed leg- gins, stood inspections, answered innu- merable questions, double-timed, cut square corners, enjoyed our leisure mo- ments, and griped, griped, griped. Well, Nicodemus, things went on like this for weeks and weeks. We shoved off on our Christmas leave, only to come back in ten days to our swab brace, aghast at the thing that now con- fronted us — Mid-years! The result, dear peruser, you know. We eight, not favored by the Muses, became in a breath, the new fourth class. Thoroughly aroused, though not daunted by this setback, we proceeded on our course till the finals. Now as for grad week — did somebody say, " Laurel. ' ' " We searched for, picked, carried, talked, hauled, tasted, and even decorated with that foliage until the gymnasium was ready for the formal hop. A week later we had forgotten land and all its questionable stability, and had turned to the cutters, our homes now, for four months. The first night out was calm, but many buckets were in evidence — to become increasingly familiar objects as the cruise wore on. Two days after leaving Southwest Ledge Light, we arrived at Parris Island, and there, under the tutelage " Ai the tea gf . f sunburned, accommodating Marines, and with enough ammunition to stop the World War, we managed to qualify as marksmen. On the evening of June 15, the ol ' U.S.A. faded into the horizon astern. During the trip across, the officers displayed many peculiar ideas. They would throw life preservers overboard, then make us chase them. So we labeled the exercises, " Confusion drills " . After a run of eleven days we sighted Gibraltar and took it by storm. Shawls, beads, and trinkets of all kinds we purchased at various prices, generally ten times the actual value. One of our members saw the town from a horse. His was a ride that rivaled Paul Revere ' s. Alexandria being the next port, our ideas of dress were changed, for the inhabitants ran around in fancy nightgowns and bright red fezzes, and being Turks, answered to " Gallagher Mohammed " , " Slim Jim Olson " , and such other native appellations. After five days ' stay we weighed anchor, and our j- ,.,. y , v 1 ijfe. We prepared joy the cruise cry became, " Two down and three to go! On to Istanbull " At this port many of our crew, on entering the Cafe Turquoise, were honored by the playing of " Stars and Stripes Forever " by the band. They were also surprised to hear such new mel- odies as " Yes, We Have No Ba- nanas ' and others of that vintage. Marseilles was next burdened with our presence. Only a few went ashore, for by that time nearly ever)-one was doing his sightseeing from the flying bridge. Reason — too great a prominence on the pap sheet " . Those who went ashore, however, were right at home, proving that the French course at the Academy did make it pos- sible to carry on a fluent and interesting conversa- tion. The jump to the Canary Islands was broken by a stop for oil at Gibraltar. Recitations filled the days for the first and second classes, while we passed the time by scraping and painting boats, a most pleasant diversion. Nine days after leaving the Canaries we rounded Montauk Point and in a few hours were anchored in the Thames. We had completed our first foreign cruise. In two weeks or less, battle practice was over, and we were off on Sep-leave, overflowing with tales of our adventures. Back from leave with our single stripes, we watched with amusement our former classmates go through the procedure of training the swabs — " Line up, gentlemen, September leave is over " . This past year, however, our main line of thought has been on the track of study. So far this has proven successful. As for the future — why, Ulysses, surely you know that rests in the lap of the One quarter of us S - I THREE GATES OF GOLD If you are tempted to reveal A tale someone has told About another, make it pass Before you speak, three gates of gold; Three narrow gates — first, " Is it true?

And out of it. as wind along the tvaste. 1 know not whither, willy-nilly blowing. (W UPON a traditional moist day, this time the twelfth of August, 1931, a group of sixty-six prospective admirals began trailing through the portals of the C.G.A. The ivy-clad librar) ' was our first meeting place, but we were soon assigned rooms and roommates. It was, however, two weeks before the whole quota had arrived. Instead of a few days ' rest, which we had anticipated, work greeted us imme- diately. We were issued a wardrobe of white, seagoing uniforms, had blue braid sewed on them, and the metamorphosis was complete. Under the guidance of a few young officers, the new fourth class learned to pull an oar, maintain a military brace ( at least we thought we did until the second class returned), send and receive semaphore, etc. The day invariably started well before the sun began to rise with a half-hour of setting-up exer cises and " five laps " . Occasionally we had a swimming party down the river. That was always a delightful change. We also learned the code flag alphabet, a few knots and splices, and some terms in seamanship. Frequent trips were made up to the new Academy, both on foot and under oars. We had one incident of special interest. That was the visit to " Old Iron- sides " . We spent the better part of three hours aboard her, eagerly exploring her decks, " once red with heroes ' blood " . the like Then came the news that we were to be real sailors and " go down to the sea in ships " . The Dobbin, a two-masted schooner, was to be the ship. It was the first time many had ever been on salt wa- ter. The two platoons went out in the forenoon, had a sandwich lunch, and returned about four o ' clock. Only a few became seasick and that was pretty good, considering the weather, etc. Why, sometimes the Dobbin would get almost a mile ofT shore and have enough wind to fill the sails! Usually we motored back — on six cylinders. A great deal of enjoyment was had on these trips — bull- sessions and the like. A dance was held to give us a glance at the social life we were to lead at the Academy. Although we didn ' t have " blues " to wear, our " whites " made a de- cided impression on the " 400 " . It was a tea-dance sponsored by the officers ' wives. Uniforms and fittings, oh my, oh my! Was it tough being reviewed in an unfinished coat and pair of " trou " ! When were we ever going to be able to pay for all these clothes? About that time our first pay day came around with the emolument of three dollars. The following month we were given a raise, and had the whole sum of five dollars to spend in four weeks. Now, wasn ' t that generous, though? After everything had been going so well for about three weeks, two pretty, white ships dropped their hooks in the river off the Academy. Pretty white ships don ' t always carry nice cargoes, especially as these " banana boats " carried second classmen. Well, miracles never cease, so we had three weeks more of grace. One of the officers had told us early in the term, " You have a lease on the place till September twenty-first; then the lease expires. " September came before the hay-seed fell out of our hair and happy times began. Just a joyous little family were we, first, second, third, and fourth class- men together. Oh, and they told us the " swab year " was the best of all. The last three must be dreadful, oh, so dreadful! (Especially the first class year!) However, be that as it may, we drew our " five foot " shelf of books and spent most of our time in study. The first class gave us a tea-dance by way of recognition. It was enjoyed by all of us, reclaimer ■ 11 .1 r 11 ■ ■ .

It was at the Nor- wich dance on November seventh that we first wore our strait — pardon, I mean monkey-jackets. What a time we had! The inter-class football games fol- lowed close upon those of the varsity. The first class defeated the fourth class 34-0; tied the second 0-0. Then the fourth class team turned about to shade the second class 2-0. " To the victor goes the bacon " ; so the fourth class was allowed to carry on for twenty-four hours. One might add that it made the most of it! The Hallowe ' en part} ' was the next incident of impor- tance. All the swabs took part, wearing costumes made of everything from string to mercurochrome. Aye, such a sight! After the beauty parade, we bobbed apples for the upper classmen. Thanksgiving arrived before we knew it, and the fourth class enacted the annual Thanksgiving Day play. This book is censored, ' nuff said. The corps, however, enjoyed the skits immensely. Decorating is another an- nual pastime of the class. We decorate for all Academy affairs, whether we attend or not. " How many days? " was ringing in our ears for a short four weeks until Christmas. Then leave came — eleven days to carry on, act like human beings, and enjoy life! Many went home to show the folks how stoop-falls and catenaries were done. (Since, as rumor hath it, our lugubrious abilities have become topics of local interest.) It was over all too soon and is no ' but a memory. Midyears ' have come and gone as well.

Snyder Platoon header J aL A COMPANY IN LINE INASMUCH as the United States Coast Guard Academy bears up under the designation of a military organization, it therefore follows that we should have an article devoted to an explanation or at least a consideration of the martial side of our careers. Since we are primarily a seagoing service, our forces when on land comprise what is known as a landing force. The units making up this detail are precisely the same as those of the Army, a well-known land organization, with the excep- tion that a few of the officers ' titles are differently designated. For instance, the " corporal " of the Army is the " squad leader " of the Coast Guard and Navy. Then, too, all non-commissioned officers, the " non-coms " of the Mule are appel- ated " petty officers " in the maritime services. Now, in the military training of cadets, the idea of the landing force is car- ried out as far as possible. The first class, of course, occupies the positions of battalion, company, and platoon commanders and petty officers, and also the color guard, guidon bearers, and platoon guides. Some second classmen are squad leaders, while the remainder, with the third and fourth classmen, fill in the bat- talion proper. Because of the small size of the corps, a battalion is the largest division that can be mustered, a battalion consisting of two companies, each consisting of two platoons of from three to four or five squads. Since 1910 the battalion has been drilling on a parade ground of exceedingly tiny dimensions. Despite this handi- cap the drill has been excellent, and even more so in the past two years. This latter improvement may be attributed in the main to a very militaristic drill master. Lieutenant Imlay, and also to the vigorous co-operation of the whole cadet corps. Other than the facts that we normally have a drill period twice a week and that next year we shall have a comparatively huge parade ground at the new Academy, little more may be said concerning the mechanical part of our military system. Much more, however, may be said of the systems as applied to the regular training of a cadet in his life at the Academy.

Perhaps the greatest influence upon the new cadet is his " swab " year. It is during this time he learns that rigid discipline and attention to details which comprise the work of the militar) ' man, especially a seagoing military man. Precision in carrying out orders, promptness and thought in interpreting them, and intelligence in their execution — these characteristics are brought out and emphasized from the begin- ning. Frequent inspections of both the rooms and persons of cadets insures neatness and cleanliness in all respects. A system of demerits is a further incentive to regu- larity in the observance of the several regulations. Undeviating daily routine naturally is necessary and is observed to the letter. The bearing, dress, and manner of each class is carefully checked by the classes senior to it as well as by the staff of officers. Quick thinking, preparation for emergencies, and that most estimable quality, initiative, are pounded, day by day, into cadets of all classes. Of course, the reason for all of these military tactics soon becomes apparent when one considers the ultimate object of the trainmg at the Academy — to produce competent officers, officers upon whom, in a few short months, shall rest the safet) ' of a ship and her crew. It is aboard a vessel that the instinctive response of the militar) ' man to emergencies, order, routine, and disci- pline, counts to its fullest measure. And that, in short, is the answer to any sort of militar)- training whatever — preparedness. Perhaps a little explanation of the methods ' hereby our drill is carried out would be apropos. Know, then, that regularly as clockwork, every Tuesday and Thursday do the cadets don white leggings, belts and bayonets, shoulder their rifles, and, at two o ' clock dash forth to formation and an hour and a half of drill. Now, in the Thursday drill period of each week we execute what is known as a parade and review. This, to the layman, is all very ' complicated and mys- terious, but in realit) ' it is quite simple. It is this way: one platoon, designated for reasons which will later be apparent, is selected as escort to the colors. The w n 1 PETTY OFFICERS I. J. Stephens J. P. German T. J. Fabik R. L. Grantham F. G. Wild T. J. Harris band, the color guard, and the chosen platoon all depart to the guardhouse for the colors. They return shortly, and, after a little ceremony of homage to the flag, they take their places in the battalion. The band then sounds off, marches the length of the battalion front, playing, and returns to its post. The battalion, having been inspected by the reviewing officer and his staff, is finally put into motion by the order from the Battalion Commander, " Pass in review! " The platoons march down the field in platoon front, do " eyes right " when passing the reviewing stand, and then march away to the barracks. Here ' s where the beauty of the thing lies. The winning platoon in the review rates being dismissed fifteen minutes early the next drill period! In the winter, the coldness adds zest to the competition, producing results unattainable in any other way. As you have probably guessed, the best platoon in Thursday ' s drill is named as escort to the colors for the following Thursday. In addition to the platoon competition is a squad competition, with similar awards and similar enthusiasm. When May and graduation finally roll around, the last review is made, with a platoon drill competition as dessert, and a cup to the winning platoon. It ' s all very thrilling and spectacular with the band playing — taut nerves — staccato com- mands — flashing rifles — and at the end the presentation of the cup amid the applause of the spectators. And yet, all of this is merely the foam — the substantial body and the dregs consist of unrelenting drill, drill, drill, and manual of arms. It is the hours of practice alone which make the review what it is. ' ■ 1,— THE COLOR GUARD MlMl4. ?

Calahan, ' 33. Ediloi RUNNING LIGHT " POR the past two years a tiny but potent book has • - been pubhshed by the second class. It is aptly named the " Running Light. " Being, as it is, a guide for the newly appointed cadet in matters relative to the Academy, the " Running Light " contains infor- mation and rules directly applicable to the fourth class year. To assist the new class over the rough spots of its " swab " year and to point out the road to the first mile- stone on its way to the goal of good officers, the second class each year is given the duty of training or, in Academy phraseology, " running " the fourth classmen. This task is by no means a simple one. Thus — the " Running Light. " Published each year about September, the book is ready to be circulated among the fourth class shortly after its entry to the Academy. The editorial stafif consists of one second classman as editor-in-chief, two or three third classmen having more or less the actual charge of assembling and grouping the material, and several fourth classmen who are used as typists, collectors and general handy men. The idea of employing fourth classmen is to find and develop a few men so that they may have enough real experience to cope with " Tide Rips " and the " Running Light " when it comes time for their class to publish these books. As has been said, the " Running Light " contains " dope " that will be of immediate use to the new cadet. The contents range from a schedule of events for the year to a dissertation upon military courtesy. A history of the Coast Guard, as well as that of the Academy, a set of regulations governing the conduct of a cadet during his " swab " year, sports articles, class organization, activities of the Academy, social particulars, customs of the Service; these are some of the more important subdivisions of the book. The book is so planned as to give the fourth classman some starting point from which to proceed; it obviates much of the work of the second class as regards nominal instruction; it brings into focus all the diver- sified subjects which should be an integral part of the general (call it " cultural, " if you like) background of every cadet. Now, the " swab, " after he receives his copy of the " Running Light, " is expected to make it his minor Bible, and generally does. This not only insures his quick appreciation of basic Service values, but, with the gentle aid of the second class, also tends to keep these qualities constantly in his mind. THE MIKADO CHORUS Cadet Cmise 1931 READING TIME: NOTHING FLAT " And the night shall be filled with music. And the cares, that infest the day, Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs, And as silently steal away. " On the I4th of May, last, the cadets too k it upon themselves not only to banish all care but to give an impression of life in the raw — " by those ' ho have seen it. " Not at all daunted by having no " wimmen " to furnish the old S. A. for the show, the masterminds of the cadet corps cooked up a complete conglomera- tion of crazy capers and childish cut-ups, which, combined with a spice of cursory comments, produced a show lacking nothing to make the evening complete. To say they were lacking in women is to equivocate. If you believe press- agents — (which we doubt most seriously) — the revue featured " sixty, single, sup- ple, sirens, slick and smiling, svelte and suave. " Then, lest we forget; the Ava- lanche of Beauty, better known as the Floradora Sextet was there in full poundage. There was dignit) ' in the form of none other than the Duchess (to be) and for the male Emily Post, Oscar (the big bum) tripped lightly to the strains of die Blue Danube. The rhythmical noises (music to the uninitiated) were the brain children of our own dear little Artie Bryer and Bandmasters Jenks and Messer. The main dis- w turbances were entitled " Swab Stomp, " " Swabs Out in tiie Long Wing, " " I Love You With All My Heart, " " Song of The Legion, " " Say Cherie, " and " Sundown, " a waltz. The accompaniment was dished, panned and pounded until presentable by the members of the band hiding under the sheep ' s clothing of an orchestra. The show opened with the Don Juans of the Academy taking their tonsils out for an airing to the tune of some of the hits of a former cruise. After they wasted their efforts to make New London realize that the cadets were more than stormfighters, the attractions were started in earnest. A galaxy of glorious, glit- tering, gleaming and gorgeous Gwendolyns gyrated and rotated to the strains of " I Love You With All My Heart. " They were followed by two local boys who made good and came to the Academy to make better. They warbled a heart- rending ditt) ' to the effect that " It is such a depressing feeling to be required to manicure the wooden deck of a sea going vessel. " After being placed in the right mood for anything, the sordid spectacle of a man without money and a woman in the same condition, was laid before our eyes. Weil, it served ' em right. A bromo-seltzer for those with " that tired feeling " was served with the next scene. As far as reports have been confirmed it was needed to keep the more tender-hearted from rushing right out and signing over their all and every- thing to the S. P. C. A. As it was. it was necessary to bar the doors during the panic of intermission. After the excitement was over and a repetition of the Johnstown Flood had been averted, events shaped their own course. The cadet orchestra performed nobly as musical Pierrots (Ha! You were wrong, Hiram, they weren ' t clowns), but their work of making people happy was retarded by the tragic sight of seeing Little Eva about to depart for Heaven and all points west accompanied by " Hearts and Flowers. " But lo! and ah! the scene (and scenery) shifts. We are in far-off China. We are still on Bank Street but use your imagination. Can ' t you just hear the clanging of the gong, the ringing of the bells of the temple, the strident cries of the coolies? We can ' t either, but why worry — we didn ' t pay our good money to hear them anyway. The music becomes somber, mysterious. Before us we see the ladies of Japan. If they are ladies, thank God I ' m still free, white and twenty-one. They sing to us a sprightly aria. Nanki-Poo slips in on the last note and slides out on his ear. The action becomes tense and dramatic. Don ' t you just ler-r-ve it? Ko-ko threatens to kill somebody, especially the officers. (Loud applause from the wings.) Nobody wants to die but Ko-ko picks on Nanki-Poo as the intended victim. Nank comes back with a fast one to the effect of " Don ' t shoot mister, I ' ll marry your daughter. " Well, those aren ' t the exact words, but they make a good snappy ending. The curtain was run down at 0023, E. S. T., 15 May, 1931, and the Cadet Cruise was over for another 365 days. Farewell, O silent muse, you are just a museum of memories now. f! u w I THIRD CLASS CHORUS The United States Coast Guard Acade-ny Athletic Association The Cadet Corps " Cadet Cmise 1931 ' The third iinnual Mlempt to torture the poor unsuspecting public A Musical Revue in the informal manner, filled with French.

Do you become fatigued after exertion? Are your hands and feet cold? Do you suffer from ringing in the ears, necking, spots, or dizzy spells? Then you are a woman! Modern psychologists have determined that unless woman is giving someone the double-once-over, her conscious mind becomes inoperative. She is likely to be only dimly cognizant of what is happening. Naturally in this half-oblivious state her reflexes will be similarly dim. The MISSION of this production is to study Woman. The study is to be intensive (more so than on ordinary evenings). " Woman the eternal mystery. " Who knows but that tonight she shall be revealed. The " young men with sound bodies, stout hearts " and crazy ideas have decided to show off. Our girls are well grounded in the " sciences and amenities. " They have " a liking for the sea " and its roar. Yet we must admit that some have athlete ' s foot. When we started out this year we took Earl Carroll as our model. At least Earl Carroll ' s models were our ideas. We had to give that scheme the discard for the reason that Cadet Barracks are shov er equipped and we could not secure bathtubs for rehearsals. ;rftj=l ' t4J m.- ' Hik We have, therefore, entered the field of Ziegfeld.

Colonel Allen B. Lambdin of Connecticut College, with his delightful personality and his ability, is instructor and leader of the group. The Glee Club consists of some forty members, about evenly divided into tenor and bass. Cadet Garland W. Collins, whose competency has been recog- nized for vears, is the president ex-officio. It is he who collaborates with Colonel Lambdin in securing the music for the Club and in arranging the proper places and times for the Club to bring forth its harmony. Every Saturday morning, after classes, sees the enthusiastic members trotting up to the bandroom or gymnasium, there to spend an hour or so in practice. The results are evident. Beside the benefit gained in the training of voices, the use of the Glee Club in special services both here and about town is becoming popular. Certainly you all remember the heavenly chorus of fairy-like voices on the night of the Christmas Cabaret Dance. Then, every Sunday morning, some eight or ten of the Club members help the choir of the First Congregational Church in the city. At the Easter Sunrise Service held at the Academy, the Glee Club this year gave its very excellent services and was deeply appreciated by all its listeners. It has been planned for the Glee Club to have a program on graduation day, and most certainly it will help out with the " Cadet Cruise " this year. As for the selections used by the Club, it may be seen that hymns and classical renditions are its forte. " Popular " songs are not used, although some of the lighter music known as " semi-classical " is sung, and sung well. The ubiquitous Bandmaster Messer, who knows his music from " A " to " " , is constantly at hand, ready to supply the necessary music, word of encouragement, or criticism. It is he who supervises special practices of the Glee Club, or when Colonel Lambdin is absent. At the close of this year, the Glee Club shall have finished one of its most successful and well-rounded seasons. Its members look forward with high hopes to next year and the new material in the fourth class. OVER THE OCEAN BLUE ' Oier the ocean blue. Sailing, my love, to you. Love ' s star of light.

But up until the winter of 1930-1931, those rumors were extremely vague, as nebulous as castles in the air. Then, one cold day in late January, we all journeyed across town to be wit- nesses at the dedication and ground-breaking of what were soon to be the grounds of an Academy worthy of the name. Full of conjectures as to the time of com- pletion of the buildings, we returned to our Fort Trumbull, there to live in inter- ested suspense till Grad Week, when we were again called upon to be present for formalities at the site of the Academy-to-be. This time we actually saw the corner-stone of the Administration Building laid — our hopes were no longer mere dreams! Returning from " Sep " leave, after a lapse of four months, we found con- struction well under way, with great strides made toward the completion of all foundations, and some walls already up. Since then, a mild winter, in liaison with energetic work, has produced results even in excess of agreements. The new Academy is located on the west side of the Thames river, about two miles farther north than our present quarters at Fort Trumbull. Another Ft at-K n VRf P «ft V■ : !

JI B ii ConitiHCIion nearly completed interesting feature concerning its situation is tiiis: it is just across the street from the Connecticut College for Women. Whether or not this shall have anything to do with hops, liberty, et cetera, is a question we gallantly leave to the future. In regard to the Academy itself, perhaps the word " sumptuous " will best describe it for cadets. Built almost entirely of that well known building material, red brick, the several structures — mainly the Administration Building, Academic Building, Mess Hall, and Barracks — are constructed in old colonial style. A swimming pool, excellent gymnasium, spacious drill and parade ground, and a large barracks containing many well fitted rooms — all these items and more are features of " la nouvelle Academie. ' The Academic Building with its appliances, the radio laboratory, physics, electricity, chemistry, and engineering laboratories, carpentry, machine, and foun- dry shops, is a delight to the hearts of both cadets and officers, for unwarranted as this remark may be, the above mentioned people are intensely interested in shop and " lab " work. But then, after all is said and done, there are still three classes, or perhaps only two, to whom days back here will be happy memories.

A large part of the world has seen the corps and it has met with approval. At home and abroad, no less in the present than in days past, a cadet must possess and exhibit an outward polish of refinement. The corps has walked with royalt} ' , danced with princesses, sipped tea with countesses and duchesses, and yet at home, it carries the same poise that is characteristic of the stern principles for which it stands. The social activities at the Academy are productive of the amiable qualities which lie hidden in the hearts of all her sons — that conquering viking spirit to possess and to rule supremely what is best. On with the dance! ' I HE tea-dance is the beginning of a cadet ' s social career at the Academy. At - ' ■ this affair a fourth classman first meets the " heart breakers " of New London. Too frequently, however, a " swab ' s " summer ceases to be heaven when the corps returns from the cruise, and he finds that his dream girl of the first tea-dance turned out to be an upperclassman ' s " steady. " There are always other young ladies and more Saturday afternoons for tea-dances, so it does not take long for iiim to become indoctrinated in the ways of a kaydet. i4J® 5 .; Pf |7 " - : ' ' -4 t:... Vl4 ■.-•■ ' 1?, ;,--■ ' ■ 1 The Mid-Year Formal INFORMALS Every Saturday evening for which no other event is scheduled, there is always an informal dance at the g) ' mnasiuni. These dances have become popular with the cadet and his " drag " alike. For the one it means Saturday night libert) ' regardless of conduct grade, and for the other it means another look at star light reflected in the Thames and a glimpse at the remainder of the " 400. " FORMALS The first formal and the mid-year hop are annual events to which the corps import their guests from out of town. FAREWELL BALL Mother, Sister, the future Mrs., and friends — they are always here to lend endearment to our closing days at the Academy. Each year the gymnasium is transformed into a dreamland of flowers and green foliage. Plans have been made for the farewell ball this year for a decoration consisting of Spanish moss, palm leaves, and smilax from sunny Florida. On the Criaise ' ' pHE American Minister Extraordinary to Egypt was host to the first class at a -•■ tea. Our own internationally famed cadet orchestra furnished music for the occasion. Upon returning to the ships, there was quarter-deck entertainment for all concerned. y Gibraltar MOONLIGHT — romance — dancing senoritas — and song! These are charac- teristic of Gibraltar. Meeting new people, eating strange foods at unique restaurants, tours to the famous Galleries, Europa Point, and other places of interest, will ever bring pleasant memories the men of the corps. Remember that full moon shining triumphantly over the great rock and the weaving shadows it made on the Promenade? How it made us think of the S.O.A.O. on the other side of the Atlantic. We were inspired to song. (Let us forget that our vocal attempts were not appreciated, as evidenced by the next day ' s conduct report.) Hot Castilian blood ran high. We feared that some would desert the corps to become toreadors. A few found outlet to their reckless Spanish passions by riding madly astride white stallions through the narrow streets. Even with an this activity we performed one praiseworthy deed before sailing. A cadet crew manned a surf boat to rescue two young. British ladies, who were being dangerously tossed about in a small sail boat in a choppy sea. The two gave us their names and addresses, but no intimate acquaintances resulted, as the wardroom took possession of our data. We sailed the next day, leaving behind the moonlight, harbor, romance, and Gibraltar. W: H ERE we made those high social connections whicli men make when they go to France. Istanlbiil SWIMMING in the famous Bosphorus was in itself an event to be remem- bered, but to have the ambassador ' s daughter and others of equally high station in our party was far greater pleasure than we had expected. Turkey can boast of its fair-sex, a fact which the Corps will ever reiterate. Vo ces ihdt follow the ships in the north Out of the twilight ' s misty grey. Voices that come to ships in the south Where the iraters are emerald, purple and gold Out of a jeweled day. As a means of expression for musical talent the orchestra grows more important year by year. During the academic year the orchestra plays for several func- tions, chiefly informal dances and the " Cadet Cruise. " On the practice cruise each summer the cadet orchestra is a blessing. The members are all on one cutter. Now, picture this: There we are, miles from anywhere, all but lost in the immensity of the sea, five days out of the last port and three days yet before we sight the next. We have played our few victrola records to death. It is after supper and there are two hours before our next watch. Bryer sits down at the piano. Stober rummages for his violin. Bjorge picks up his saxophone with that amiable glint in his eyes. Holtzman breaks out his drums. Thayer tunes his " humstrum. " A few hesitations in getting settled and the wild notes of an interpretation of " Dinah " breaks forth. A little knot of silent listeners is soon enlarged to an admiring crowd. Their expressions are comical — reminiscent, pensive, abstract gazes that hark back to memories, till now dormant m the press of duty. This year the orchestra contains nine members. There are three saxophonists, Rudy Bjorge, V. O. Johnson, and Rollins. Charlie Stober plays a wonderful violin. Butch Thayer the guitar. That most necessary instrument, the " pooh-pooh-pooh- pooh " bass horn, is put through its paces by Stephens. Werst supplies the trom- bone ' s moans. George Holtzman is a fanatic with the drums. We have saved the piano player. Art Bryer, till now, because of his special part. Being naturally inclined to composition, Bryer spends a large part of his time writing music for use by the orchestra and in the " Cadet Cruise. " Always having had the desire play at some time in a jazz band, his natural outlet is in his musical expression. Sketchily as this is told, it may serve in a small measure to show the indubita- ble value of a cadet orchestra to the cadet corps. . The Graduation Parade MAY WEEK, the culmination of three years of training for the class of ' 32, is THE big week for us. There will be parades, there will be diplomas, there will be commissions, and dances, and drills, and smiles, and tears May Week this year may be similar to that of last year, and then again it may not. That ' s the beauty of the thing. The following schedule was carried out in 1931. so you may base your guess on it. Sunday. May tenth — In the morning, a Mother ' s Day service at the Academy. In the afternoon, about three o ' clock, a parade to the St. James ' church (in monkey jackets!) and the Baccalaureate Service. Monday. May eleventh — Competitive drill at ten-thirty a. m. for both com- panies and platoons. A battalion review and the awarding of the cups. Captain Hamlet ' s address to the graduating class at one p. m. Tuesday. May twelfth — Pulling boat and sailing races in the morning. Th; graduating class won the pulling race for the third consecutive time, while the fourth class turned all tables by breezing across the line yards ahead of all the other classes in the sailing race. i] ' • j| 4 m The Secretary Arrive.s Rifles Stacked ?»f.RI m Visitors Watch Our Parade The Ring Dance at night, upon which occasion the near fir st and second classmen formally received their rmgs.

Graduation guests of the Corps were invited and many took advantage of the opportunity. Refreshments were served enroute. The ship, being a novelty to most of its passengers, was inspected from flying-bridge to engine-room. Thursday.

See this year ' s production for a description. Words fail us. Friday, May fifteenth — The big day! A final drill and parade in the morning, and at noon the presentation of diplomas and commissions by Secretary Mellon. The first classmen were at last officers, and recognized as such!

ATH LETICS " From the toss-up to the final whistle, a tension prevails that is found in no other type of activity. The traditions of the Corps and the Service are furthered on the gridiron and the hardwood court. " y I The 1931 season was without parallel in Academy histor)-. Regardless of the fact that this season ' s schedule was the most difficult that had ever been filled by an Academy squad, the results were most satisfactory. The two games lost were decisively so, although the scores resulting were far from being criterions of the abilities of the Cadet squad. Middlebury and Worcester Polytechnic Insti- tute were new on the schedule this year, and the showing of the team against both ensures promises of future contracts. Although there were no " easy " games on the entire schedule, it was so arranged that the squad was in a position to win the first two and so give it that necessary early season confidence so con- spicuous by its absence in 1930 when we dropped three straight for a very bad start. In summing up the season, it might well be said that the Academy is surely definitely out of the small unknown college class and has established itself with the well-known New England College and State Universities. After but a brief 10-day practice period, the blue gridsters journeyed to Worcester, Mass., to meet a new opponent, Worcester Polytechnic Institute of that city. It was the opening game for both schools, so comparative scores were unavailable. After three periods of relentless marching and counter-marching on the field, Nadon carried the ball over from the three-yard stripe. Forney kicked the point. Academy 7; Worcester 0. The following Saturday proved to all hands that Brooklyn had been lucky in 1929 to hold us to a tie, 0-U. 1930 ' s score 27-0 checked this and the 13-0 victory this year double-checked it. Forney and Rea halved the honors. Middlebury was next met on its home field in Vermont. They were the other new entry on the Cadet schedule and again the outcome was dubious. After an afternoon of " flukes " and b ad breaks, the Academy team went to the showers smarting under the outcome — Middlebury 15, Academy 0. The score was by no means indicative of the capabilities of the Cadets ' work and fight that day but, instead, of the absence of much needed luck and charm. " Too much Goff " describes the next game all too well — Rhode Island State 33; Academy 6. Connecticut was met and astounded, when a fighting blue band of linemen backed by a secondary of the same type caused them to leave their home field with a scoreless tie and feeling very fortunate with that. Norwich was beaten 6-0 in the last game in a battle long to be remembered. It was a three-fold win: — First time to defeat Norwich; win for the last game on Mercer Field; and possession of the mug. lll I w r STAFF 1931 Hetu Coach .

" At a formal gathering in Middlebury Stadium held the afternoon of Satur- day. 17 October, 1931, the personages of Messrs. Hoyle, Yeomans, and Hartley made their debut before members of the U. S. Coast Guard Academy football team. The party was well attended and enjoyed by all (except the Cadets). " The excerpt above tells the story. A wet field, coupled with the absence of McCaffery and Bartlett, proved a real handicap. The first half ended scoreless. In the third period, a blocked punt from the two-yard line led to a safety to Middlebury ' s credit. In the same quarter, a net of forty yards penalties in two plays to the Cadets gave the Vermonters an easy touchdown from the two-yard stripe. It was the final period, however, when the Green Mountaineers really proved their strength. Hoyle grabbed the ball from center and jogged fifty-two yards before he was downed — behind the goal line. Just another case of getting the " breaks ' — backwards. W ' orcestey — Alumnae Field — Worcester The first half early developed into a punting duel between Corsi and Tinker of the Engineers. Playing under a terrific sun, sapped the speed of both teams and the first three periods were uneventful and uninteresting. In the last quarter the Cadets took the ball to Tech ' s ten-yard line to be held for downs. When Tinker dro pped behind his goal to kick, he was virtually swamped by the entire Academy team. He got off a poor kick which was returned to their three-yard line. Nadon made the touchdown in two plunges over center. Jack Forney halved the uprights and accounted for the extra point. In the final moments of the game, a Worcester end scooped up a free ball in midfield and went over for their only score. Drake ' s attempt for point was blocked — very efficiently. . n 1 itw. " It was our third attempt " Rhode Island — Kingston, R. I. (The author sincerely hopes that a recurrence of the incident below will never again materialize, and that the TIDE RIPS of 1933 will recite a different narrative. ) Anyway, the stock of Golf and Cragan, Inc. reached a new high; the senior partner, Goff, being too much in evidence. While Goff was running around the field with a football and reaping point after point, his running mate, Cragan, was doing a neat job of keeping our backs from reciprocating. Goff was fast; Cragan, determined — a real defensive man. In spite of the apparent route we will look upon the game as a turning point. It was the first time in history that a cadet squad had been able to score upon the Rhode Island aggregation. Connecticut State — Storrs, Conn. A fighting Cadet team surprised an apparently championship team and suc- cessfully held them to a scoreless tie. Further, they severely threatened to break a precedent and administer a beating to the said championship team. Connecticut had a powerful line — ours was better; Connecticut had a shifty backfield — ours was shiftier. It might be added that even though the scoring punch was lacking, the fight was very much in evidence, and the Corps was entirely cognizant of a good, fast game of football. Indications are that the Aggies would do well to " point " for the game in 1932 — it " may " be worth while. Brooklyn — Mercer Field — New London With McCaffer) ' permanently lost for the season. Coach Merriman picked on Jack Forney for field general, who demonstrated his abilities very well in the fifth annual game against our Brooklyn rivals. In the second quarter Jack passed twenty-five yards to Dick Rea for a touchdown and later in the closing period tore through tackle to add six points of his own. He kicked the point on the second six-marker. This was without a doubt " Forney Day " at Mercer; he staged a great show. ' hell ire won the " Aiiig Norwich — Mercer Field — New London. Cadets and Cadets — horse and bear — bands, music, governors, admirals, color, women, song — and football. New England ' s " Little Army-Navy " tilt enacted for the first time on home soil. In keeping with legend, it was a close battle, as had been the two previous games at Northfield. The Cadets were not to be denied for a third straight time — and were not. For two periods, the evenly matched squads tried every trick and play known in football with no avail. The Horsemen were outplayed in this half, though the power of the blue team seemed rather sporadic. Early in the second half, after a fifty-five-yard march down field, accomplished by a conglomerate of line bucks, fakes, spinners and what nots, David went over from the four-yard line for the only points of the game. It would be absurd to single out the " outstanding " stars on the field for that day. Norwich had O ' Brien but the Academy had eleven men. It was a great game; a fitting finale for Mercer Field and — well, there ' s " the Mug!

A truly successful season is easily claimed by virtue of eight victories to six losses and by wins over two long-standing rivals that cadet teams had never before defeated. It was most gratifying to note that no matter whether the breaks were for or against us, the team to a man played their hardest -whatever the score might be. Their morale was excellent. The team itself was about as well balanced as could be desired. Forney and Rea as forwards were equally brilliant at passing, shooting, following up, and floor work. Rea worked nicely at guard during the first of the season, as did Forney at center whenever he got the call. Zittel, improving greatly over last year, filled his center position like a veteran and came through the season with flying colors. The back court was splendidly guarded by the two " Teds " , Fabik and Harris. Fabik was one of the outstanding guards in the state; his long shots at crucial moments pulled us out of many a hole. Harris, being kept out of the first six games by football injuries, came back to captain the team to six wins against two losses for the rest of the season. The fastest and best game of the season was the one played on the home court with the Rhode Islanders. Overcoming a six-year athletic jinx and being the " under-dogs " due to having taken a sound beating previously at their hands, the Cadets playing at peak form came through with a 44-40 triumph. Though the Academy led at the half 29-18, the Kingstonians made a second half rally and took the lead at 35-33. Nevertheless the cadets possessed the necessary wallop and forged ahead to take hold of the lead until the final whistle. Against Connecticut Aggies the varsity played a top form game to break another long standing jinx by smashing the Storrs quintet, 40-42. This victory gave the Academy the undisputed championship of Connecticut small colleges, inasmuch as we had previously conquered Trinity and Wesleyan. The Army game at West Point was the first of a series to be played with the Militar) ' Academy. At the half we were leading 20-19, but the second period proved they were the better team with the final score of 36-25. The season closed with an uphill win over Norwich, thus furthering the tradition that neither team ever loses on home territory. No man on the team can be considered as particularly outstanding, though perhaps Jack Forney had a slight edge, due to his high scoring ability. Among the substitutes, little Weller was the only one to play very often, and when he did, it was a pleasure to watch him outclass opponents twice his size. Next year will see Rea and Forney on the floor as co-captains, while Cadet J. J. Hutson, Jr., will take over the managerial duties handled this season by Cadet J. A. Bresnan. Coach Merriman deserves a great deal of credit for development this year of the best quintet in the history of Academy athletics. w THE BASKETBALL TEAM 1931-32 Lieut, (t) J. S.

Played at New London. The opening game of the season was the only set-up of the stiffest schedule we have ever attempted. Our zone defense not only proved too strong for the opposition, but our forwards scored almost at will. Rea sank six field goals, though playing at guard, while Forney and Fabik were given plenty- of support. WESLEYAN. Played at Middletown. This thrilling two-point victory was won only after a tough battle and a second half rally. Fabik took all scoring honors with 13 points while holding Johnstone, flashy Wesleyan forward, to five points. The large, new court was somewhat of a handicap to the Academy style of defense, which, however, held up well under the severe test. The second half nearly turned into a football game, but the Cadets kept the upper-hand and played real basketball. PROVIDENCE. Played at Neir London State Armory for the benefit of the unemployed. The Providence game was a repetition of the Worcester game in that although ■e played a hard game we were slightly outclassed by the Friars. Trailing at half time, 21-9, we played them to a standstill in the second period but could not over- come the lead. We did our duty to the unemployed, however, by drawing a large crowd to this benefit affair. RHODE ISLAND. Played at Kingston. The Rams went on a rampage to hand the Academy the worst setback it received during the season. Cox, Horseman, and Martynick were mainly responsible for the high score of the Rhode Islanders. The winners flashed a long-passing and fast-running attack. Forney played the best game for the Academy. WEST POINT. Played at West Point. Led by the eagle-eyed Forney, the Coast Guard set a fast pace in the first half to lead 20-19 as the whistle blew. However, the Army dominated the last half, piling up a lead which they were able to maintain. Among the pleasant memories of this contest is the one which recalls Dick Rea overtaking the fast Ray Stecker. who had the ball with an open court before him. TRINITY. Played al Hdrtjoid. After four straight defeats, the Academy regained its winning stride to whip Trinity soundly. Harris, recovered from football injuries, joined the Cadets to assist in evening-up last year ' s drubbing and to hold Golino, Trinity ' s little captam, to one goal. The entire team played a fine game, the defense clicking perfectly. CONNECTICUT AGGIES. Played at New London. The absence of Chubbuck or his equal in the Storrs lineup was responsible m a large measure for the beating taken by the Aggies. After having " taken it on the chin " from the up-staters ever since the opening of athletic relations, the Cadets broke loose in a scoring orgy that put them ahead, 30-5. At this point the Aggies put on a spurt that netted them 1 3 points, whereupon the Cadets cut the bonds to put the game on ice. Forney, Fabik, and " Weller led the attack. SPRINGFIELD. Played at New London. Two evenly matched teams playing hard and fast, produced an exciting game in which the outcome was in doubt until the final minutes. " We held a three-point lead with two minutes to play, but failed to hold the ball, with the result that Springfield edged out a hard earned margin of victor) ' . Forney was the high scorer. NORWICH. Played at North field. A laree floor and a slow style of offense produced a slow and low scoring game. Though badly off form, the Academy came from behind at the beginning of the second half after trailing all the first period. Our rally, however, was not strong enough to carry us through, and the " horsemen " won their ninth straight victory of the season. RHODE ISLAND. Played at New London. The thrilling 44-40 triumph over the Rhode Islanders furnished the fastest and best game of the season. Playing a normal game, with accurate passing and brilliant shooting, the Cadets amassed a 29-18 lead before the intermission. A resolved, Rhode Island team came on the floor in the second half and fought its way to a 35-33 lead, only to lose it immediately when Forney and Rea got under- way again. These two forwards scored 19 and 12 points apiece, respectively. Zittel, Fabik and Harris also played a masterful game. NORWICH. Played at New London. Norwich ' s slow waiting game again bothered the Cadet attack to such an extent that it was not until the last ten minutes that the Academy was able to come from behind to avenge the early season trimming. Fabik and Forney pulled the team out of the fire at the proper time, and then held the ball out of danger until the final whistle blew. fe THE FENCING TEAM ' I HE forerunner of future Academy fencing teams gathered nightly at the Armory or at the g) ' mnasium, where, under the tutelage of Mr- Buron, they soon gained a wealth of knowledge in the realm of " touche " , " parry " and " thrust " . Although no active meets were held, the squad displayed an earnest- ness and zeal that would have done justice to a contender training for an Olympic meet. Leslie, being from Chicago, gained the captaincy, mainly because of his knowledge of " pineapples " , " gats " and " tommie " guns. The squad is listed here: Leslie (Ciipt.ih!) Schmidtman Murphy Werst Collins, G. W. Bartlett Guiil Hahn Kurcheski Wagline Anderson DArcy Patterson " " pHE year 1932 marked the development of a swimming team which, under - - favorable conditions at the new Academy, is sure to be heard from. For a period of several months, the familiar cry of " Swimmers will swim " echoed throughout the stretches of the barracks each afternoon at 4:00 P. M. Waiting trucks whisked the " WeismuUers " to the " Y " pool, and there for an hour, noth- ing was heard but the thrashing of water and the gurgling of youth in ecstasy. The team was perfected under the coaching of Lt. Thiele, a swimmer of some note himself. The lone meet of the season was held at Hartford against Trinity. We took all the dashes but failed in the relays. Trinity won, 49-28. The meet was classically termed as a " dual, informal meet " . The team consisted of: CofSn Robertson Jordan Midtlyng Baxter Westbrook Oren Hancock Boole X ' eedfald Smetonis w t THE BOXING TEAM 1932 T ' ' HE past year has seen an increase in the desire to place boxing in its deserved position. Without a doubt, boxing is the Service sport. All indications point to the fact that it will soon be on a par with the major sports of the Academy and eventually will be recognized as such. The corps has more boxing enthusiasts in its midst than those of any other one sport. This can be evidenced by the initial turnout of sixty men when the first call for candidates is issued. Unlike the major sports, its training and practice season is very prolonged. The squad goes into practice in November and remains so until the early part of March. Under present conditions this represents a great deal of work and sacri- fice for the small number of intercollegiate meets actually held For a solid month the afternoon period is devoted to rope-skippng, exercising, punching the bags, weight pulling, shadow boxing, etc. Finally, " Mickey " takes them a little farther into the more minute details of the art of self-defense. Punches are explained and illustrated; foot work is stressed; aggressiveness and defensiveness are thoroughly drilled into the cohorts of " would-be leather-pushers. " Then comes the day when, two by two, thq future " Dempseys " and " Tunneys ' timidly meet on the squared canvas. Timid is indeed a misnomer, as is evidenced by the galaxy of gore and " shiners. " There, in three rounds of two minutes each, every member of the squad is given his opportunity to display how he can " give and take. " Such training continues until the week before the meet. Then the chosen ten or twelve " most possibles ' are selected and concentrated upon. Training- table goes into effect; nightly road-work and frequent jaunts to the beach are in order. The night before the meet, everyone is in shape and " raring to go. " 2 li THE BOXING SQUAD 1932 The Alumni meet scheduled for December was cancelled, and so our first actual test was deferred. M. I. T. brought down a good team, apparently having benefited by last year ' s work. It looked like an easy victory for us, but their heavier weights were good, so we contented ourselves with a draw, four to four. Springfield again had its array of sluggers and were good enough to take the meet, five to two. Undoubtedly they deserved the win. Although the season could barely be called a success, it might truly be called one worth while. The increased attendance at the meets vouched for this, as did the fact that M. I. T. and Springfield are both anxious to schedule us for the com- ing season. Staff 1931 1932 H. K. McLernon, C.S.K. Cadet O. C. Rohnke, ' 32 Cadet J. P. German, ' 32 Cadet J. F.

At the bell, the " ref " made the mistake, the crowd believed, of holding up the wrong hand. It was a tough break for Gus, but he surely did satisfy the customers. Wissenback managed to eke out a victor} ' over Shunk. Shunk displayed some nice form, but inexperience was his down- ' } fall. L M M. I. T. produced its extravaganza in the person of one 1 ' Cooper, who, in addition to being Captain and the team ' s main- B 1 stay, was runner-up in the inter-coUegiates last year. He had a f M J hasty right and a hastier left, and did he use ' em! David was in m I figh ' " g throughout, but Cooper was hot. Ktjtt Stubbs swapped blows with Collins to hold his o n for two ■ rounds. After a stubborn effort in the last round, he tired fast H and lost by a close margin. 5 ACADEMY, 2; SPRINGFIELD COLLEGE, 5 Bb " Butch " Thayer went great again and showed Tilden how it ' s done in Montana. MCI.ERNON, Cii.ich r- % ■ r i i. , i • i i ii Cannel, captam of the Massachusetts aggregation, had all the form and punch of a " pro " , and in spite of Armstrong ' s terrific opening round, managed to score a win that was not begrudged liim. Captain Rohnke turned in a splendid account of himself once again. Todd was good but spent a miserable time dodging the multitude of rights and lefts that " Gus " sent his way. In his last appearance with the Academy team Rohnke really displayed some brilliant work. " Grangier was rangier " and Shunk had to satisfy himself wit h the knowl- edge that somebody must lose. (■ A )ft " W. L. " stepped in fast and furious, and the big gladiator from Springfield was lucky to walk off with this bout. Although Scalan had a punch, it was easily seen that the strateg)- and experience of Lugenbehl were superior. Tommy " Stubbs was heart and soul for winning his bout, but Marger was heftier and possessed some excellent footwork. He pranced around for two rounds and finally in the third was awarded the decision over an exhausted but fighting Stubbs. J. P. White of the first year men put on a real match with Corbet. Our only regret is that it was not a scoring bout. White easily deserved the technical K. O. he was awarded. Class Ro wiiig THE annual inter-class whale-boat race, held during May Week, has long been one of the outstanding events of that period prior to Graduation Day. It is ro ed over a mile course on the Thames, and anyone who knows can readily associate the factors — whale boat and mile — and easily sympathize with the crews. The finish line is located near the Academy dock, and many of the gradua- tion guests take advantage of this to swarm to the dock and cheer their pet crews over a winner and, of course, to see some unfortunate coxswain get his legendary " ducking " at the hands of the sturdy crew. Some of the more venturesome spec- tators embark on the course in patrol boats to follow the race from its start. With the great crew of " 1931 " gone, " 1932 " is ready to lay hands on the title that they have so long desired. The race will be an event scheduled after the publication of this book — so wait and witness the outcome for yourself. Class Football T NASMUCH as " 1932 " had a title to defend, the said class decided to defend it - ' - — and they did successfully. " 1935 " loomed as the first obstacles and loomed mighty. Well, it seems that when the dust of Calkins had settled, the " might) ' " walked off at the short end of a 34-0 trouncing. A week later " 1933 " trotted onto the same field with the same determination that " 1935 " had previously. There was a battle with no results, except for the usual number of banged noses, swollen lips and " shiners. " Nevertheless, the fray ended zero to zero. With feeling running high, " ' 33 " and " ' 35 " met and battled for three periods with no score. Finally, in the closing seconds, Thayer was forced to eat his own dust for a safety. Final score; 2-0 in favor of " 1935. " Lost Tied 1932. 19.33. 1935. I I WITH the advent of a more ardent military regime, it was entirely logical to introduce a form of intra-mural athletics wherein the various contesting teams represented some unit of that organization. With this view in mind, the former inter-class basketball league gave way to the more representative inter- platoon and inter-company leagues. The platoon league was instituted early in December and was composed of teams from all four platoons. The roster of the squads was as follows: " A " Co.. FiK Platoon Warner (CdplMti) Chaffee Synon . . Olsen Henthorn Lewis " A " Co.. Seco hl PLiloon Stephens (C.ipljin) Childress Stober Harned Davis Vennel Carpenter Cascini " B " Co.. Fini Platoon Seeger (Captain) Rollins Millington Reed Hill Howe " B " Co., Second Platoon Johnson, R. R. (Ca i .) Evans Calahan Sutter Washburn Kerr This platoon series was primarily intended as a course of instruction for the prospective company teams to follow. There were many games, however, which will long be remembered by the contestants. Stephens ' gang led up to the closing weeks and then dropped about five straight and the lead to Seeger ' s tribe, who tenaciously held first position for the remaining few games. In all, about forty games were played, extending over a period of ten weeks. After the completion of the varsity season, a series of three games was scheduled to decide the champion company in basketball competition. The membership was limited to former inter-platoon men only, so " ringers " from the boxing or varsity basketball squads were not eligible. After two nights of general practice, the teams assembled and elected captains. The squads and their respec- tive captains were: " A " Company Stephens ( Captain ) Carpenter Warner Chaffee Davis Harned Olsen Childress " B " Company Seeger (Captain) Washbur Synon Evans Hill Reed Rollins " B " Company copped the first tilt by a score of 27-20 in a game replete with thrills and what-nots. The following night found two referees on the court and the chances for escaping detection with holding, kicking and tripping were halved. Hill left the game in the final half and was nearly followed by Stephens, who had three personals at the half. The absence of Hill may have been the deciding factor — anyhow, " A " Company crashed through to win, 23-19. In the final game, " B " Company dashed through viith a dozen points in the final stage to win, 28-19. i f-i! iffit w Coast Guard Soe s COAST GUARD FORH ER Men, we are Kaydets, Proud of our Corps Proud of our heroes brave Who f uard every shore.

We ' ve written " Spindrift " be- neath it, haven ' t we? L s m SPINDRIFT f m IN MEMORIAM C rfw of 1932 The Class of ' 32 is through. I ' m sure you ' d Uke to know them. A few choice words of each I ' ll seek, in order that we might know them. In going down the alphabet, Don Adams first we find. An animal from Virginia, the only one of its kind. He ' s been our " Bat " Commander, still he ' s got the same old head, His rank, his jaw, his oyster pots will linger till he ' s dead. Buffalo sent us Bresnan, and it was a great mistake. For when it comes to croonin ' , Joie almost takes the cake. With brawn and brain, and might and main, he ' s singin ' his way thru; ■What we can ' t see is just why he didn ' t go in for grand opera too. Of " Texas " you have surely heard; the cows in Texas know him. They ' ll tell you Collins is the goods, mere man cannot outshow him. ■We ' ve danced beneath the rafters, much adorned by " Tex ' s " skill. And when he ' s gone, you ' ll realize — just one tough place to fill. yji Mr. and Mrs. Collins had a son whom they called Walter; But " Ski " decided it was proper the name of this man to alter. So " Wackie " now replaces Walter each and every time. And, by the way — he alone has dated on one thin dime. Jimmie Craik from the city of beans, has one upon his shoulder. His knowledge of books and history must have made his love grow colder. For many a maiden fair, we ' ve heard, has longed for his caresses; He won ' t give in, however, and shuns all things in dresses. " Jimmie " Dejoy is next in line. (This should be easy and simple.) The man with the grace of Don Juan and looks enhanced by a dimple. He ' s never lived in Fashion Park, although you wouldn ' t believe him. With padded shoulders and peaked lapels, the styles will never leave him. When Fabik came to us that day, he brought a moustache with him. He was sorry to see it go, no doubt; the moustache, too, must miss him. He ' s been our back-court mainstay, and really quite a fighter; We ' re sorry to see him go from us, no man was ever whiter. Now German was my " wife " you see; no better was ever known. Fair and square and good to me, I ' ll miss him when Fm alone. But one night, beneath the light, he leaned across the table And said to me, " My boy, you see, Fm really in love with! Mabel. " Beans come from Lima and Harris did too, ' tis Lima, Ohio, I mean. A land lubber fair when he first breathed this air, now as salty as ever was seen. He captained the squad on the hardwood court and led us through the season. You ' d like him, too, with lots of sense, and fight and faith and reason. " Who is that fellow over there, with eyes so bright and shiny. ' ' " The girls at hops would always ask of Frank or Joe or Heiny. " Why! Bobby Grantham from Alabam, " the answer swelled the breeze. His accents South, his looks are South, and even his dimpled knees. Some people grouse and others swear when things are not just right, Henthorn fair, from Maryland there, does both with all his might. He ' s " griping " in the morning, and, too, when the sun goes down. It always seems to serve him, when more troubles he has to drown. " fust for your own injoniMtion- Hodges has had a wonderful drag, just why we do not know. Some say it ' s looks, some say it ' s brains, some say it ' s brawn and so. But ask me how he got it and I ' m quite sure you shall see It ' s all so very easy when your middle initial is " T. " How often in our " swab " year, after toil of day was done. Did we hear those cries of " squads right " , " fall in " , and " ten-shun ' Johnson was a student in that class of vocal art. He ' s really got those things today, his voice will make you start. Gentle " Ski " of Tea-neck, is a rounder thru and thru. But it took a pink kimona to bring out all that ' s due; You ' ll read in books of Romeos and ancient knights of yore; Lothario stands among us — who could ask for more? Some men like to go ashore, each Saturday afternoon. Others like to " stay at home " — their bunk is such a boon! Somehow " Gibby " was half and half — he wanted to go to town. But often the " spots " piled up and so for Lynch it was " thumbs down ' Captain George R. Leslie of the Illinois National Guard Descended one day among us with a crisp and curt " Hi, pard! " From the windy city with rods and gats, he took us all together. His dining car on a railroad train is a joke in any weather. Millington hails from Pittsfield, but he likes New London town. It is rather nice when you meet someone with a " Chevy " to drive you round. Of late for some mysterious reason, he has looked ill at ease, The office finds Alaska good for pains like heart disease. Spring gives us rain and sun and birds; Seattle gave us Pearson, A boon to the sea, to the ships and boats and the uniform house of " Mearson ' He is rich in the love of brine and foam, he knows a ship by its bow. He ' s the only living Kaydet with a knife in all his trou. Leather-pusher Rohnke is the best that Jersey can give. He ' s fought his way to joy and fame to eat and fight and live. Huge and strong and brawny, he ' ll strike terror to your heart. But beneath the bone and muscle, human kindness finds a part. They tell me South Dakota is a land of snow and ice. The mail must go by dog sled, and " Mushie " must be nice. Now Seeger might repute this, if he does, it ' s all a bluff, ' Cause why does all his mail come, wrapped within a muff? Schmidtman, just like Pershing, is of military worth. The C.M.T.C. sure lost a king when Richard started north. He ' s bugs about his tactics but to me it ' s all in vain. He needs but once to show his face, a victory to gain. Snyder ' s the man that ' s led the clan, his marks were always high; His wit, so dry, does likewise flit to limits of the sky. He learned to dance in Syracuse, the " toddle " , " hop " and " drag " , That step he does at Kaydet hops must be the " slew-foot " shag. Stephens hails from yon fair state, and lo! the city of Dayton. He ' s not the kind that ever thinks of spring and birds and matin ' . (It ' s rather hard to write about the life of one you know so well, The more I think about me, the less I want to tell! ) W1 Charlie plays the fiddle, and he really does it well. The people out in Waterford used to think that he was swell. He comes from Minnesota, the land of Swedes and Danes. Yes! Stober is a square-head, that blood is in his veins. Synon, suave and svelte, from the land below the " Line " , Is our miniature Emily Post — how to dance and eat and dine. He is savvy and he ' s snaky, and he has a " line " , they say. That is very much outstanding in the " lines " as is today. Wild is our mechanic; our machinist; engineer. He got his wealth of knowledge from nursing Hector for a year. And often in the classroom, when an obstacle is near Freddy always tends to keep us, just to make it clear. And now you take Pop Warner, who is mighty, yet so small. I believe his sole ambition is to grow up big and tall. He really knows his snaking, it is said, without a doubt. If you don ' t believe it — just wait — you ' ll find out. 1 find the mighty K.O.A. completes my meager list. At talk of Heidelberg, his eyes soon fill with mist; With an ear for art and music, Zittel alone can well decry, The strains of Lohengrin from the " Jazzy " " Oh — Do I " . Ex. — " Is he examining for bowlegs " Libris — " No, — Inspecting for men out of uniform. Ex. — " They all look as though they are dressed. " tto Ski — " I don ' t see how you can af- ford to take so many girls to expensive restaurants. " Wackie — That ' s easy. Always ask lier before going in, if she hasn ' t been putting on a little weight. " She — " Did I ever show you where I hurt my hip? " He— " N-no. " She — " Well, let ' s walk over there. " AN OLD STORY A woman always needs a chaperon until she can call some chap-her-own. Father — " You take accounting at college, do you not? " Son— " Sure. Why? " Father — " Maybe you can account for the silk undies in your last laun- dry? " Smith — " What are you reading? " Joe B. — " Five thousand things for boys to make.

She opened up her toothless gums and these sad words came out, " Take me to the Kaydet hop; to Trumbull wheel my chair. A handsome second-classman is waiting for me there. Once more I ' ll rob the cradle ' ere the crepe hangs on my door. And the last request I have to make; give my pictures to the Corps. " These fresh air lovers take you out in the air and get fresh. C O. D. — " What are you doing up there? " Salt — " Robbing the crow ' s nest, sir. " TRUE LOVE When Milton -was married, he wrote " Para- dise Lost. " Later his wife died, and he wrote " Para dise Regained. " ODE TO DON We were standing in the road on a morning cold as Hell. " Prepare your companies for inspection, " the " Bat " Commander was heard to yell. Then a shiver went through the ranks, a shiver of mute appeal. And somebody ventured to whisper, " What a dirty, rotten deal! " We kept standing at attention while they looked us over twice. And when finally they dismissed us, we had almost " gone to ice. " Now the only thought that saved us on those mornings cold and bracing Was to get that " Bat " Commander and to give him a damned good lacing. He forever walked in front of us and moved just as he pleased. While the rest of us just stood there; first we shivered, then we sneezed. Rigid attention was not for him, so his hands could not be frozen, Now the reason so, why, don ' t you know? He ' s only Imlay ' s chosen. i Three s y pes gire added weight He — " Would you marry an idiot for the sake of his money? " She — " Oh, this is so sudden! " 1 c — " Where are we going at 7:55, mister? " " On report, sir. " 1 c — " True, mister, true; shove off. " Commander — " Now, suppose that you went on your post one dark night. Suddenly a person appears from be- hind and wraps two strong arms around you so you can ' t use your rifle. What will you call then? " Sec. Class — " Let go, honey. " Deciding that the best thing to do in the famous port of New London was to eat, the two salty Cadets en- tered a restaurant and greeted the waiter with a cheery " Hawaii? " " Call the Bosphorus. " Came the boss and one ordered, " We want Turkey with Greece, served on China, and we don ' t want it Chile; also Java, Norway don ' t want any Sweden in our Java. We don ' t want to Russia but we ' re Hungary. Venice supper ready? " The boss snarls, " None Budapest would order like that; I wouldn ' t be surprised if we Havana thing for you. " Kay and Det pipe up, " We don ' t Bo- livia. Do you want Thibet Esthonia bluff? " Retaliated the boss, " Our cook, Mis- sissippi, might be able to fill the order. Idaho Alaska. " " We have no money, " said Kay, " since someone swiped our Persia; Denmark it on the cuff. " Said the boss, " What ' s getting In- dia? I trusted one guy and Egypt me. By , you can Rumania. " " If you don ' t Hindustan us, we Congo elsewhere. " So they left with a suppressed, " Abyssinia Samoa! " .r i lfe. i ' l iH: k T A SW ABO ' S LETTER TO A HOME PAL Dear John, Everyone, except the Cadets, Hkes Marseilles much better than any place we ' ve visited. We Cadets thought Constantinople was much better, for the ship was anchored and kept swing- ing around. Thus we saw a lot of the city through the port holes and did not have to go from one side of the ship to the other to do our sight-seeing. Here is Marseilles; we take turns pulling the running boat from the ship to the dock along a line. The French- men are a very sociable race. They meet us at the dock, give us their call- ing cards, and tell us the easiest way to " make social connections. " The " femmes " here are tres jolie mats petite. You see, I ' m improving on my French. I always thought it was such a difficult language to learn, but in Marseilles I noticed that all the little children speak it and even the dogs understand it. Eight bells! That means twelve o ' clock. Must go to dinner. The food is much better now. For a while we had onions for breakfast, dinner and supper. Now we have them for tea also. ' We have the nutziest bread — it is square and has holes in it. FIl save you a piece — it can ' t spoil. O-ra-vwar. Jack H. Wh.l i- - ' « " To Newsboy — " Give me a ' Sun ' . " N.

FEW vessels see as strenuous service in all kinds of weather as the speedy picket boats of the U. S. Coast Guard. Always " on the go, " they must be ready for duty at a moment ' s notice — their powerful motors always tuned up for high speed. It takes a tough, " seagoing " propeller shaft to stand up in this gruelling service... a shaft that is tough, rigid, durable and ex- tremely resistant to salt water corrosion. It is therefore significant that Monel Metal shafts were specified on the new picket boats constructed for Government service by the Wheeler Shipyard and the Robinson Marine Construction Company. Your own experience will prove that Monel Metal shafts are tougher, more dur- able, smoother-running. Since they are ex- tremely resistant to salt water corrosion, they do not pit or gall, but polish to a mir- ror-like surface that saves packing and bearings and reduces vibration to a minimum. They have a uni- form, rolled struc- ture that insures years of trouble- free performance no matter how hard the service. The ame r ropertit s th,,t make Mone 1 Metal OV.ll- uable for propeller shafts also make it the ideal meta form anyoth erma- rine parts and fi tings.

IThe famous Sterling Coast Guard 6 cylinder model, 225 H.P., 1200 R.P.M.. powers a large fleet of 75 footers. Twin engines are reported as averaging 30,000 miles annually for 6 years. IThe Sterling Dol- phin 6 cylinder engine, a proven veteran of I I successful years, developing 300 H.P., at 2000 R.P.M., is a motor unmatchable in engineering characteristics and ability. lAnd now the Viking II straight eight. IThese Sterling engines develop their power easily on com- mercial gasoline. Those rated at 2000 R.P.M., have less than 95 lb. compression. IWhere consideration is given the moderate compression of Sterling engines, and their known higher volumetric efficiency, the potentialities include the least cost of maintenance and the greatest number of years of useful service.

CONNECTICUT I 2-t,S ' Harriet Lane ment, and f discharge of An interesting print in the Super- intendent ' s office shows the Union fleet at the bombardment of Forts Hatteras and Clark, on the 28th and 29th of August, 1861. The picture is particu- larly interesting for the Coast Guard, because the cutter HARRIET LANE was engaged, and shows plainly in the pic- ture. Captain of Engineers F. H. Pulsifer, a retired officer who had sei ' ved on the LANE, tells in an article in the Journal of the United States Coast Guard Asso- ciation of the attack on the forts, stating that the LANE was engaged in the bombardment, and that her big 100- pound rifle, and four 32-pound rifles, had overshot the guns of the fleet, and contributed to the surrender. The print now at the Academy shows the engage- om the deck of the LANE is rising a great puff of white smoke, perhaps from the the same 100-pounder, on the forward deck. An account of the print says: " Forts Hatteras and Clark, crouching on the eastern shore of the entrance to Hatteras Inlet, North Carolina, surrendered on August 28, 1861, to a Federal attacking force of ships under Flag Officer Stringham and troops under General Ben Butler. Though a bloodless victory for the Fed- eral forces, it was an important one, for Hatteras Inlet was a nest of Confederate raiders, a supply depot, and a strategic position comparable to Fortress Monroe. Butler said, ' From it offensive operations may be made upon the whole coast of North Carolina to Bogue Inlet, extend- ing many miles inland to XX ' ashington, Newbern, and Beaufort. ' The colored lithograph was drawn by Francis Garland, seaman aboard the U.S.S. C imheiLiite . which appears slightly to the left of the center of the picture.

It ' s proof of neither strength nor brains T(i whine sn loudly at ydur pains. . n idiot can curse and swear, dolt can rave and shriek, lUit oft it calls for courage rare No angry words to speak. Fools are proficiently profane. Who would stay cool must have a brain. — Edgar A.

[253] SHIPMATES WITH THE COAST GUARD ■pOR man y years Westinghouse ma- - - rine equipment has gone to sea with the Coast Guard. When plans for ten new cutters were drawn up a few years ago, Westinghouse marine engineers worked closely with those of the Coast Guard in developing the turbine-electric drive that was adopted for propulsion of all those highly effi- cient guardians of our coastal waters. The recent commissioning of the Cayuga completes the new construction program and Westinghouse is proud of the fact that it has been privileged to participate so largely in the building of this fine fleet. The severe requirements of the Coast Guard service for both men and equipment are substantial evidence of the fitness and reliability of Westinghouse marine apparatus. . l tinghouse Quality workmanship guarantees every Westinghouse product The Coast Guard Cutter Chelan and her nine sister- ships are equipped with Westinghouse Tur- bine-electric Drive. ■» I .

For we feel obligated to live up to the confidence expressed by thirty-one leading schools and colleges for whom we created year books last year. The printing of college annuals is, with us, more than the production of beautiful vol- umes ... it is a hobby—for we revel in the true job of creative, artistic craftsmanship. To withstand constant handling the covers are as sturdy as artistic. The type is clear, harmonious, balanced. A patented process makes it possible for us to produce cuts which retain all the pristine clearness of the original photographs.

However Gladys to be ' ( for watching the morning drills, or fur sailing or whatever yotu " Kaydet has planned for the afternoon, a sport dress is just THE thing. This goes well at the informals, too. If you are going out for tea, though, a rather conservative light afternoon dress is THE thing. For the hops in the evening the usual evening dress is THE thing. (But Maybfl, the Kaydets take rather long .steps s(] judge for yourselves.) The style that is in season is again the thing. A moderately low, rather snappy looking evening dress. The .Superintendent does 1 2o2 ] |i object to weak bticks (l)acks that can ' t bare any more). This does not mean ;!iat ou have to appear in sleeves and all that, Henrietta; no indeed, far from lUit just use discretion (unless it ' s for the Ciraduation Ball ; then let ' em ha e it). The tloor is without doubt going to i e the hardest floor on which you ever tripped the light fantastic, so don ' t kill yourself Denebole. We musn ' t forget the inevitable line. But really, girls, we can ' t tell 30U any- thing on this subject. You are all past mistresses of this gentle art. It is up to ou to use yotir woman ' s intuition and size up your Kaydet. Some like the quiet demure type and some like the lively, risque model. All want a little touch of the latter, at least. You see the Kaydets only see the dangerous sex en masse about three times a month, so naturally and normally they have a large .imount of pent up youthful exitberance. And along with your line, Betty, although we love our brothers-in-arms like moth- ers-in-law. ])lease remember that " (_)h, I vent to such a knockout hop at ' e t Point last week, " doesn ' t strike any re- spondent chords in our hearts. Now a bit of fatherly advice Alarianne. If you don ' t know much about the lingo be a bit conservative in your quest for knowledge. About one kaydet in a mil- lion wants to explain every word of the Coast Guard slang he uses. Of course if this is your first pilgrimage to the Academy, he naturally expects the ques- tions and is willing to answer a goodly nunilier of them. But, Mayonnaise don ' t drajie yourself into a living question mark. And also, if you don ' t understand much about the various athletic games he takes you to, I wouldn ' t ask too many ques- tions. The Kaydets are b}- nature very much given to athletic interests.

I)is part ijf their lives. Pick out the side wearing Blue and White — watch ' em — and cheer like — when every one else cheers. Nothing is more embarrassing to a Kaydet than to drag a girl to, say, a hasketball game — and have her ask " What is that man doing with a stick, " i v " Is that man on the nu)und trying lu hit the (itlier with the hall? " So, have a heart. Don ' t e.xpect your Kaydet to take _ ' our r.nii. The Superintendent has an order prdhi biting this. Of course, Helen, this does not mean that you can ' t take his arm. Concerning chaperons — ?x- ' ' -iS; ! To sum uj) : This isn ' t college, but lots of the bi ys u;e stacomb anyway.

So we took to wine and drink and other things. And the devil in us struggled to he free: Till our friends rose up in wrath, and they pointed out the path, And they paid our debts and packed us o ' er the sea. — Oh. they shook us off and shipped us o ' er the foam To the larger lands that lure a man to roam ; And we took the chance they gave Of a strange and foreign grave. And we bade goodbye forevermore to home. And some of us are climbing on the peak. And some of us are camping on the plain ; By pine and palm you ' ll find us, with never claim to bind us. By track and trail you ' ll meet us once again. We are fated serfs to freedom, sky and sea : We have failed where slumniy cities overflow : But the stranger ways of earth know our pride and know our worth. And we go into the dark as fighters go. Yes, we go into the night as brave men go. The our faces the} ' be often streaked with woe ; Yet we ' re hard as cats to kill. And our hearts are reckless still, And we ' ve danced with death a dozen times or so. And you ' ll find us in Alaska after gold. And you ' ll find us herding cattle in the South. We like strong drink and fun ; and when the race is run. Ve often die with curses in our mouth. We are wild as colts unbroke, but never mean ; Of our sins we ' ve shoulders broad to bear the blame ; But we ' ll never stay in town, and we ' ll never settle down. And we ' ll never have an object or an aim. No, there ' s that in us that time can never tame ; And life will always seem a careless game ; And they ' d better far forget — Those who say they love us yet — Forget, blot out with bitterness our name. — Senice [269: % Official Photographer TO THE. 1932 TIDE R1P5 Specializing in College Annual P hot ographij Arthur Studios, 131 West 4-2.
