With this in mind we set ourselves to the difficult job of telling in this insufficient space, of the irorth and accomplishments of the man to whom ire all look in adnnration and respect. Merely to talk with him inspires confidence — his whole per- sonality breathes assurance, dynamic force, optimism. In his po iiio)i at the head of the Acaden y organization he has per- formed ironders in the habilitation of a raw neic Reservation and has infected lasting enthusiasm into every one of our activi- ties, in a direct and tangible manner. And so. realizing our inadequacy in truly expressing our gratitude, ire humbly dedicate this unworthy volume lo CAPTAIN RANDOLPH RIDGELY. JR. rl PRE FACE Tf HE CLASS OF 1933, since the day of its inception in to the Academy, has been, to say the least, a singular class. It has run the gauntlet of change in many and varied forms. Witness the changes in ac- ademic and executive staff, yea, even unto the super- intendent, the initiation of drill periods in earnest, together with an altogether new system of class and Academy government, the substitution of a four year course for our breathless three, the countless modifications and ab- solute changes in the Regulations, the alterations in aca- demic and cruise routines, the long-awaited transition from our old, well-known, ghost-haunted. Fort Trumbull to a resplendent and oh! so solid new academy, the Depression - - - ! We could go on, but we hesitate in confusion; we are becoming slightly tongue-tied. And so, with the above serving partly as an apology and partly as a reason, and with bated breath, we ardently assure you, with racing heart, we offer this hiatus in our reasoning, this, our brain ? child, TIDE RIPS ' 33.

Seldom ■ ■ detected in study, never passing up a bull session, consistently scorn- ing work for the joys of liberty, yet has he barged merrily through the course with reckless abandon, buffeting exams and re-exams aside with- out a tremor. There are few topics with which he seems unfamiliar. There is none, to date, on which he will not discourse with utter assurance, at the slightest provocation, and the least hope of remuneration. With the wide world as his field, his enterprises are legion, nor has he ever denied us t he lessons of his experience, for often has he left an audience Cowed and limp, aghast in open-mouthed awe. Still, Dave has a certain hard headed sense of judgment and a clarity of vision that have won rewards for him, and should carry him far, aided by the facile tongue with generous spirit of goof fellowship.

RUDOLPH BJORGE New London Connecticut ' T ' HE very suul of music himself, and a serious defender of the modern ■ ■ trend in melodies, Rudy stands out as such wherever he and a re- ceiving set are hi |uxtaposition. The aesthetic side of his nature, how- ever, does not stop here. Politics, religion, morals, the place of woman, literature, all these and more he discusses with that mborn equanimity granted to a chosen few. Intensely mterested in the Ser ' ice, Rudy has applied himself with assiduity and finally accomplished the Herculean task of breaking a time-honored jinx, by being the first New London man to he gradu- ated from the Academy. Phlegmatic, observant, diplomatic, philosophical, understanding, " d ' Chief " lives with those about him in perfect amity, his pungent, rather mature humor unfailingly rescuing him at every crisis.

(by stretching, he can assume full dignity at sixty-live inches) is one of the fightingest men of the class, which would naturally be assumed from his Russian sounding name. Spike, intelligent, honest, capable, extremely self-reliant and assured, even so can display at times a most charming naivete. This especially in regard to worldly things. Do not, however, be falsely guided by the foregoing; Spike is by no means unsophisticated. His outward appear- ances are oftentimes deceptive. He is old fashioned in his ideas of fidelity to his friends, generosity, and faith in himself; all of which makes him a valuable ally and room- mate. But, on the other hand. Spike can originate some of the wildest schemes, ultra-futuristic in their application. Needless to say, the com- bination of all his characteristics in one diminutive entity gives us cause to reiterate, " Good things come in small packages. " Ass slant AUtugei Fool hall 3. 2.

Carp, from Swab days, always has figured high in the intelligentsia. Carp ' s common sense, together with his easy manner of leadership, have helped all of us over many of the rough spots usually found by cadets. These same qualities have been his guardian angels during his three years as (naturally) a section leader with one year as Battalion Adjutant included. In no other way couJd his amazing propensity for keeping out of trouble (and off the pap sheet) be explained. Of worthy note also is " the master mind ' s " wonderful capacity for moderation, moderation in all things. He is the balance gear for all about him.

As careless of his manners as a bank teller is with change, we find in this guy a firm upholder of the Regulations, a methodical worker, and a ready sympathizer. Earnestness is his greatest virtue, earnestness coupled with a real reticence in voicing his opinions. (Ed. note: The latter is, alas, de- plorably a rarity among cadets!). The above qualities have naturally kept Hubert from the particu- larly annoying glare of the " spot " light, bu , conversely, have, together with his thoroughness in study, given him the title of Savoir. His is the high philosophy of " no work is better than work not well done.

His knowledge in carrying out the latter have made a Childress rating of 3-7 mean something to be strived for. At first we thought the propinquity of the College would give him ample material for his escapades with femininity, but no, we find him branching forth to conquer new worlds. Europe, Africa, South America, and even New London hold no terrors for this diminu- tive Rudy Valentino. We hope his research will enable him to find the 4.0 of his dreams. A New England Brahmin, but, oddly enough, a Brahmin with a con- genial nature and a never-failing fount of optimism, Bill will always be a desirable shipmate. Bojrd of Reiiew 1. Boxing Squad .5.

No matter what the topic of the moment — Shakespeare, seamanship, psychology, the breast stroke, or Bjorge and his fiddle — it finds this lad in either the front row or the center of the stage. Understand then, that Gene enjoys life, but know ye also, he ' s fully as familiar with sweat and elbow grease as tea and skittles. Space lacks to enumerate his activities for class and school, or describe the modesty and finesse which marks them, it must suffice to say that without him this book h.id been sunk.

His is the touch of the dilettante, the flitting from flower to flower, a practice advocated by many but ob- served by few.

Our best argument against this is one Davis, a youth from that Texas where the scenery is simile and the men are metaphor. The past three years have seen many problems to sulve, many tests to survive, with correspondingly varied schools of attack, and none has proven more efficient than his: hard earnest work balanced by a keen appreciation of that old game called " getting a kick out of life " . But it is more than a mere line, for behind it lies a warm personality that never sours. Time and again Harry has performed valiant deeds in assisting disabled classmates adrift in foreign waters, which, in case you don ' t know, is one fine art, and in like manner he has been the savior of the class basketball team in times of stress. Our delight in having Harry with us is marred only by the thought of the bereft cattle. Ctdet Cruise 3. Class Baskelbal! i. 1. CLiss poulball .5. 2. Company Basketball 2, Glee Club .i. -. 1.

O and bthiildl There came cme day untu the Academy from the city of V( ' ashingt .)n a wandering gift of the Gods — that mortal was L Jack. A wizard in athletics, Jack is a great deal more. He is a con- noisseur of the classics, a crooner of lullabies a la Bing Crosby, a protege of Arthur Murray, a savoir in the classroom, and a sure balm for mangled hearts. As we have mentioned, athletics are Jack ' s forte. His practically motionless game of basketball shows him at his best — never let it be said that he is a waster of energy ! Everything about Jack reflects his geniality, from his all encom- passing smile right down to his unfailing willingness to talk with anyone, about anything, anytime. B.nkethjll i. 2. 1. Co-CjptMit 1.

AH, those eyes! Ooh, those smile! Good peepul, yuu do right to judge the owner a smooth article, for Mrs. Harned ' s little boy William IS a product of that school of diplomats, Washington, D. C, possessing a record of adroitly handled problems and a host of friends as tribute to his astute capabilities and gracious manner. His is the enviable power of accomplishing much while preserving an aspect of dohe ftir nienle. From the standpoint of his chosen career. Bill appears as an earnest contender for proficiency, attended already by no mean success, nor have his quiet exertions been confined to personal advancement alone, since on several occasions the whole class has benefited through his efforts. As intimated, however, he does not permit serious pursuits to mon- opolize his energy. Far from it, indeed, he exhibits many of the traits of a sincere exponent of hedonism blessed with a fertile imagination. If it were not for these, we should at times be incredulous towards his lurid narratives of exploits on leave, usually perpetrated in com- pany with one J. Forney, also of Washington.

If Wendell were only here to appre- ciate his illustrious counterpart! Actions, however, speak louder than thoughts with Herb, and consequently we find his military inclination releasing itself on the drill field. Herb came to us fresh from Duke, Joe College himself, and for a native son of the Nutmeg State we wauld say that he had roamed a long way before finally deciding that the Academy was the place for him. His ability to back his beliefs to the limit is perhaps his most dominant characteristic. If only radios were allowed in cadet rooms we should always find him at home — New London femininity would wilt, but we have no doubt that our Beau Brummel would find a satisfactory solution to any problem to which he became attached.

Ever conscious of his purpose, avoiding all possible difficulties, ignoring the remainder, by this creed Al comes unscathed through the vicissitudes of existence, all unperturbed he strides on midst storm and strife while the rest of us quake at each new pitfall, his sole concession to tempera- ment I wad of gum. In this apparent immunity to distress he sometimes appears as one apart, but let the scene shift to lighter themes and the illusion is dis- pelled by his hearty laughter. No ponderous philosopher here, but a jocular spirit in the best traditions of broad comedy; when it comes to digging enjoyment out oif life Al has small need for a pick-axe. And as for basketball, just try to complete the class team without him. Blond, bluff, and blithe — there ' s Al — nor can the future hold many obstacles for his unruffled progress. CjJel Cruiit; _i.

To him we are partially indebted for the popularity of the orchestra, as presiding artist of the percussion section, where his tricks among the traps are at once a joy and a command to the ear. His is the happy faculty of knowing when to keep quiet and listen, a sure token of the true philosopher, further borne cmt by discerning tact and keen observation; all of which, combined with an even tem- pered, forgiving disposition, assure us that wherever he goes, George will be well received.

Only those who know this can understand that tenderly reminiscent air with which he fondle.; a belaying pin. This fact coupled with the faculty of talking out of the northwest corner of his mouth without letting the southeast corner SL spect the above, kept many of us secretly in awe of him until we learned that underneath that case hardened exterior he is just an old softy who wouldn ' t hurt a soul. After a stormy tirst year Joe has settled down on a steady and peaceful course, with all indications that it will continue, judging from his ability to get his work done without disturbing the neighborhood. The class would mourn his absence, if for no other reason than that miraculous treatment of certain vowel combinations, his pronunciation of which wakes at once astonishment and delight in our ears.

Wilmington North Carolina FOLIR years of training at a military prep school and a natural mili- tary bent have made Jack undoubtedly the most martial man in the class. A conscientious and thorough manner in performing all his work makes him just the man for carrying a difficult task through to the finish. A quiet, debonair, aristocratic. Southerner, almost a Red Mike; but of late we have our doubts. Perhaps he has secret connubial aspirations, in which case good luck. Jack ! Good luck !

When it comes to sports we always find Dick at the top, and the success of Academy athletics is due in some measure to his hard and brilliant playing. His nimblencss and agility in going after difficult passes and making impossible baskets leave all his would-be successors a goal to strive for. In all the time Dick has been with us, since Swab year on through, no one has ever had anything but good to say for him. His whimsical philosophy and timely comments on cadet life are legend — without them we would indeed be lost.

Faith- ful attention to study, continuous observation of the iej;ulations, to- gether with a well-defined sense of justice, have resulted in positions of scholastic and military importance, which an inherent modesty, a wealth of good humor, and a lovely complexion, have paved the way to wide popularity. That cherubic smile and general appearance of ingenuous innocence might lead one to suspect him of guileful scheming in attaining his high position, but no, on the contrary, he ' s square as men come. For all his hefty build he claims to be devoted to ease and repose, yet he stands out in the class football team and crew, working every minute while constantly compUuning of how tired he is. We find but one fault in Dave — on the subject of history. However, it IS only a minor aspect of the Civil War — as to who wi n it, a mere trifle — so in the light of his other accomplishments we overlook it. Company Baskcthjll 2. Comp.iny Cotnmander 1.

It is a bit of a mystery to us how he man- ages it, about the only explanation is to assume that he is no ordinary mortal, but an exclusive custom built model equipped with all sorts of super gadgets. This might imply that the subject is a rather dazzling spectacle of radical appearance, to be safely viewed only from a distance. Such is not so, for Smitty is ju t like the rest of us, even possessing an active sense of humor. He has done a great deal for the class and the corps as a whole; what is more, he has done it with such quiet efficiency and in such a self-effacing manner that few realize its extent.

Again, in the informal atmosphere of the bull session, as an active participant, vigorous and jovial.

Aside from the soul satisfying sensation of such a record, it lias helped him win a platoon, giving a legitimate excuse for creating a racket while harassing said platoon.

How we did it is still one of those unfathomable mysteries all tangled up with outer space, bumps on the head, and certain lines on the hand, hut the incon- trovertible fact remains that we did. " Did what.- " says you. Ah, now we ' re getting to the crux of the matter — the inexplicable phenomenon alluded to is that we ( but a pitiful remnant of a once mighty class! ) managed somehow to sur- vive three hectic years, to lay ourselves open to diplomas and commissions. Entering in the summer of 1930 at Fort Trumbull we, as a class, went through the usual and venerable indoctrination process sponsored by our pals, the upper-classmen. For the details of this course see the history of ' 36 — Through that first year we bungled, laughed and double-timed, learning, as only swabs can learn, the intricacies of Academy routine — official t i ■ i i r- j, lenipuf fugtt — thank God! [89] Hjlfii.i] tu HtJieii! and unofficial. Gradually we learned our way in and about the city of New London. We spiked our hats, we had our Thanksgiving play, we gave our Hallowe ' en party, attended, quaking, our first formal, went home resplendent in shiny gold on Christmas leave, jolted past mid-years, cussed the late Spring with the best of ' em, lis- tened to involved lectures, rehearsed time and again for the Cadet Cruise, drilled incessantly, studied, worked, played, and goldbricked until Commencement week and our first cruise. Returning from that cruise, sadder, wiser, and a trifle thinner men, we joyously abandoned Reservation and comrades for home — there to re- gain our sense of proportion by taking frequent ( " Hot water! Listen to it run! " ) baths and talk- ing with the O. A. O. Our iconoclastic second class year lived com- pletely up to its old, old reputation as dispeller of illusions. It was during this year that we be- came chronic pessimists — " I might as well resign —they ' ll never be able to make an officer of me! " Beset by strange new duties and responsibilities, watched like hothouse buds on all sides, staggering under the burden of thirteen scholastic subjects, trying hard to achieve somewhat of the august dignity the first class so lightly displayed, and quite naturally being sadly ingenuous in our attempt, we were " neither beast nor human " , we were an anomaly. Our second Christmas leave failed miserably as a thrill; frankly, we were worried. Buoyancy. however, reasserted itself with the coming of Spring, the passing of our second Finals, and Grad week. As eager as before to shove off on the cruise, we took a deep breath and plunged into the role of bag-holders supreme: first classmen. In pass- ing here, eloquence may be obtained by simply stat- ing that of all the colorful memories retained from cadet days two will stand out in vivid relief: that first month or so as swabs and the first class cruise. The end of the cruise and our second Sep leave found us evincing a slight degree of assurance in the hope of our graduating as per schedule. En- thusiasm and confidence fairly oozed from us as we took up our abode in the new Academy. " AhJ. incidentally mister. this i a practice cruise. " [9o: I ' tS " And now wc had more adages to twist. We beat hea ily on our chests and pro- claimed that we belonged to the generation of " iron men in wooden barracks " and tliat. furthermore, we were damn proud of it. Setting up and operating a brand nev ' reservation wf fun, though. It was enjoyed (especially those first days of finding this and that) by all hands. And those weeks that passed as we waited, breathless, for the installation of telephones " tomorrow " !

And here, patient reader, we finally bring you to the end of three years of trickle charging on the cadet battery. We are " fini " , as they say in Marseille, which naturall)- implies that much more interesting things lie in the immediate future.

You say chronicles merely set forth the sequence of events in an uninteresting manner with no regard to the importance of the tabulated occurrences. Ah — here then lies the difference, for to us the past three years of our lives are ones that none of us will soon forget. Gentlemen, I ask you; does it seem possible that it has been nearly three years since we found those dreaded entrance examinations? Surely, we will never forget the feeling we had when we learned that we were about to become Cadets. My — didn ' t we feel big? But when the time came to tell our loved ones goobye — well, maybe we didn ' t feel so big then. F-O-R-M-A-T-I-O-N! It was 14 August. 1930, that we had our first one, and it ' s been formation this and formation that ever since. The only thing that kept us from being homesick those first few weeks was the continuous activity. And we thought those drills, seamanship classes, and dancing lessons were a grind; but we were eftsoons to find that they were halcyon moments compared to the exacting discipline demanded by the upperclassmen. Those upperclassmen! They had the system for impressmg on our rather distraught minds those things pertaining to the sea, drills, and Academy life that we had taken so lightly before those stripes made their spectacular appearance in our midst. We soon learned that the best we could expect was bad enough and that we could exist even through the worst. So it wasn ' t long before we were doing about as v ' e pleased — and of course paying the penalty! Our first real nightmare came in the form of mid- year exams. ' Twas then that we found that we hadn ' t yet learned to study. Casualties! ' We knew the mean- ing of the word. ' We haven ' t forgotten those that were forced to leave us then — but we seldom hear from them. Did you ask who won the interclass sailing race? We did — and by a big margin too! And so with that victory under our belts, a stripe on our arms, and the " Cadet Cruise " , drills, and dances but a memory, our first graduation week was past. " Hey look, fellows! " There, moored at the State Pier, were the two cutters that were to be our home PjJ i for the next three months. Many things happened in [95] mm ii ' tit) those three months, spent in part at Parris Island, where, for three weeks, we blazed away v ' ith rifle and pistol. Hot! Why one day even the " rebels " in the class got " seasick " on dry land. Somebody had mixed a little kerosene in the lemonade! " One man — or fifteen cadets! " Well, maybe there was some truth in that cry at first. But we knew we were inexperienced — and it didn ' t take us long to get " salty " enough to reduce the " fifteen " to a few- digits. The cruise was never boring. Those who didn ' t suffer from " mal de mer " had plenty of fun kidding those who did; and the cruise couldn ' t possibly have been boring to those unfortunates who were continually looking over the side or at the bottom of a bucket! After eleven or twelve days of rolling and pitching, we sighted Gibraltar. The expression " as steady as the rock of Gibraltar " must hav,.- been phrased by seamen coming in from a rough voyage. After Gibraltar we visited Alexandria, Cairo, Constantinople, Marseilles, Gibraltar again, and Las Palmas. Each of us recalls different impressions of the Great Pyramid, the Sphinx, the Mosque of St. Sophia, the tons of gold and silver and precious stones that were guarded in the national treasury of Turkey, and the lateen-rigged boats of the Egyptians. One thing we all have in common, though, is the firm conviction that no countr) ' can equal the good old U. S. A., in scenery, women, or prices! New London again — our first cruise was over. A mad dash to the B. C K. and the depot. Trains going North, South, and West took us home for our first Sep Leave. But for all our griping and complaining, all of us were glad to get back into routine after those twenty days. Studies, sports, and week-ends kept us busy through a very uneventful third class year. We were no longer " swabs " , but then we were not allowed to be very vigorous in en- tertaining the new class of " swabs. " In the usual length of time another graduation week rolled by and we found our- selves with an additional stripe on our sleeves. Preparation for the coming practice cruise didn ' t thrill us as it had for the first cruise — instead we felt a deeper determination to " learn more on this trip. " After three weeks at Quantico, spent in -ihc piirsini of kippiness! " " ifle and pistol target practice, we left for [96: r Puerto Rica, St. Thomas, Rio Je Janerio, Buenos Aires, Montcvidet), Baliia and Trinidad followed in order. None of us will ever forget the beautiful city of Rio with its wonderful beaches, its perfect tourist accommodations. Sugar Loaf Mountain, and its parties. At B. A. we made a short tour into the interior and visited the Naval Academy of Argentine. It was an interesting trip which may be borne out by the fact that many of us still correspond with cadets whom we met. We thought we would never get away from Montevideo in time for leave in September, but finally we hove in the anchor and left that rainy city. When we were on the last run home, we all felt better — after all, there is no place like home. Soon all departed for another Sep leave — but the thrill which we had experi- enced in the first leave was missing this time. The twenty days were past all too soon and at the end we found ourselves once more faced with the problem of getting settled. Two days of mad dashing about saw us departed forever from old Fort Trumbull and installed in our new home overlooking the same beautiful Thames, but higher up the river. Then followed the days spent in getting acquainted with the new fourth class. " A good time was had by all " — that is, by nearly all. Gradually the battalion was made to function in a military manner as the new additions became familiar with the drills. Several football trips, home games, and cross-country meets served to make the fall pass quickly. Christmas leave provided us with the necessary diversion from studies and enabled us to face the long grind of mid-year exams; this time we struggled through with no casualities. When it was all over we asked our- selves lethargically if we could stand the strain of three more examinations. But now that the goal is in sight we do not expect to weaken. It looks as though we may be first classmen yet: these big sparklin s ring; seem to proclaim as much. It ' s a great feeling — this almost being first classmen.

It isn ' t possible to imagine a more mottled collection. Straw hats and linen suits, heavy tweeds of rather glamorous hues, high school blazers and two-toned shoes — intermingled in a conglomeration of clashing colors and obvious bad taste. If one hadn ' t noticed the strained expres- sions, he would have probably concluded that it was merely a " Home-coming Day " of Fuller Brush grads. Thus sixty-six men walked leisurely into the library and sixty-six cadets in " work whites " double- timed out and up to the barracks. How auspicious was the beginning of the class of ' 3 ' ' : the first class to enter the Academy under the new four year course and the last to matricute at the old location! " Square your hat, mister! " , " Brace up! " , echoed over the peaceful (?) reser- vation bright and early the next morning. Those of us who expected a life of ease where exceedingly disappointed in the three Ensigns who took immediate charge. Somehow or other, these unnatural young officers would want to go rowing practically every morning or else they would desire our presence at drill, daily, for three or four hours. They had other quaint ideas too; for instance: that a three mile jog and strenuous calisthenics in the morning, before sunrise, was beneficial for young cadets! Probably the most memorable occasion of this vshole " swab " summer was our " tea-fight " . On this eventful day, the cadets, with their names stencilled brazenly across the chests of their whites, be- came acquainted with the " sweet young things " of New London, each of whom wore a tag bearing her identification. After this little social practically every cadet had a particular destination for each and every liberty, and it is whispered about town that a few have kept a perfect attendance record even to this date. Our peaceful routine was broken one sunny afternoon by the usual thing in the life of a swab: two cutters, trim, white, neat, steaming up the Thames. " What dire evils they portended! ' We had but twenty-one more days to enjoy our comparative freedom T wt .fuJ hbtrty p.irties wait for and then, as our officers threatened, " our lease [103 1 ould expire. " And so it did. When about seventy upperciassmen, intent on im- pressing upon us the significance of the potent letters R. H. I. P. and the traditional humility of " Swabs " , came back from leave, the grand " Awakening " occurred. Who of us will ever forget " the long wing " , " the short wing " , or " topside the classroom building " ? Classes had also begun and evenings found us " boning " trig, algebra, and astron- omy, besides casually perusing " The Satur- day Evening Post " . Shall we mention our debut in the formal side of social life made in " monkey suits " and patent leath- ers? Perhaps many of us remember more clearly the subsecjuent reminder that we " had not conducted ourselves decorously . . . " . Of course a Swab ' s life is no bed of American Beauties, but it ' s not all cactus either. The first speck of silver in a hitherto very dark cloud was our Hallowe ' en party. Then, a few days later, someone blocked a punt and our class football team won, 2-0, over the second class. Our victory brought us a respite of twenty-four heavenly hours of " carrying-on " besides a bit of material wealth. On Thanksgiving Day, after the traditional " gouge " , our class presented a stupendous dramatic and lyrical hodge-podge. It was comical, it was enjoyable, it was a masterpiece; but even if it had been pediculous, it wouldn ' t ha x- made any difference — for everyone was satisfyingly stuffed with turkey and cranberries. A month later, we all went on Christmas leave and thrilled the populaces of our home towns every time we strutted down " Main Street " with our salt} ' mien. Fifty-six of us survived the mid-year exams and renevi-ed the trek toward finals and that one precious gold stripe . . . ninety days . . . eighty days . . . seventy days thirty days Money t ilks — " Conci-bye .

We spent two weeks at Quantico on the range, throwing slugs of lead at little black discs and waving red flags at each other. Then, before we knew it, we were off to Puerto Rico. The first few days at sea were not extremely enjoyable Even orange juice is not a sure cure for " mal de mer " and swaying in the crow ' s nest doesn ' t help ,( [104] that proverbial nausea. But it didn ' t last (it couldn ' t liave without necessitating a few burials at sea). B)- the time we dropped the hoc)k in San Juan we were all sure ' nuf sailors. We siiall al a)s remember how glad we were to see each of the gay South American ports, to know that we wouldn ' t have to stand long hours of sea watches for a few days, and to brush off the blues for liberty ashore. Rio — Buenos Aires — Montevideo — Bahia — Port o ' Spain, not long ago were but magic names of unfamiliar places. Now each is reminiscent of glorious adventures and escapades — ' " SX ' ell, yes, now I remember; ' twas at the Botofoga Club in Rio . . . " . " When we came back to the academic grind, we found that the scene had changed. The old gray buildings of Fort Trumbull had been supplanted by the new modern home up the river. No longer were we iron men in wooden barracks; instead, just as soon as the pap ' sheets appeared, we became restricted men in brick buildings. We were glad to see a number of new faces, those of the new class of " Swabs " ; for someone else would bear the brunt of attack, someone else would " hold the bag " . Imagine the ecstacy at first being addressed as " Sir " ! Our curriculum this year has been more difficult. It has been necessary to truly concentrate on " calc " and " nav " and physics. Thus, enveloped within a maze of text books, sketches and experiments, we have not noticed the year slipping by. Christmas leave first, then mid-year examinatic.ns, and now ' tis spring again. Though spring may mean a turning of the cadet ' s fancies toward the ladies, young and fair, it is also a harbinger of the dire ordeal of final exams and the exodus of another class. Just a few more days and we ' ll be standing out to sea again, for another cruise; we ' ll have two full stripes on our sleeves, and two full years of Academy life in our wake.

" One-tuo- ihree. and turn — one- On a sultry day in mid-August, tlie scventeentli, to be exact, we, the class of 1936, straggled through the gates of old Fort Trumbull. From every state in the Union we came, " Yankees, Rebels, and all " , to begin our careers as Kaydets in the Coast Guard. And it soon became pain- fully evident to most of us that life as such was to be no sinecure. We spent the first too lazy days in drawing our vsork- ing ' hites and other equipment, and in getting " hot dope " on the Academy from the ensigns who had been assigned to take charge of our introduction to the mysteries of the Coast Guard. Then came the dawn. We awoke bright and early one morning to find that it was necessary for us to form in sections and learn to marth hither and yon in a military manner. At this juncture we became acutely aware of the fact that our working whites in no way belied their name. The next few days were filled to the brim with instruction, most of which required much strenuous effort on our part. Swimming, rowing, drill, and physical exercise kept us occupied most of ever)- day. Many were the kinks that were discovered in necks and backs, and legion were the aching bones that gingerly arranged themselves at night in our spacious beds. Instruction in dancing, rather sadly needed by most of us, was added to our category of activities after that first week in our new home. On the follow- ing Saturday, having become proficient to the nth degree in the art of the dansant, we made our debut as social lions of the Coast Guard at a tea-dance given us by the wives of the faculty officers. Here we made contacts, social and otherwise. The lament was later made that leggings should have been uniform. Only a few days then passed until we be- held two beautiful white ships steam up the river. We were informed that these were " banana boats " , and that our days of peace were rapidly approaching an end. We discovered presently that this was " hot dope " indeed. Misgivings was written plain on several faces as, a few days later, they watched treasured hags and suit-cases go bobbing jauntily out of the gate. The upperclassmen had come, they had seen, and they had gone; with leering as- surances, however, that " they would return. H,n-,n-m- n ' it ' n t ' y did ... ! " f 109 ® ' idJ!i}ig intt) the home stretch Only two or three days after the ad- vent of the upperclassmcn, we were told that the powers-that-be had ordered the immediate removal of our beloved ensigns to another station. We heaved tremulous sighs — of relief. Peace, thought we, would now be ours. Not so. The old guard of Academy officers found it very easy to keep us actively engaged. Our classes in com- munications and Academy Regulations, which we had hitherto welcomed as much- needed rest periods, were suspended and replaced with much rowing, or rather, much more rowing. For physical exercise, we were given to the tender care of Mickey McClernon, who seemed to have visions of developing some fifty-one supermen for th e glor) ' of Coast Guard. On the fifteenth of September we began moving gear from Fort Trumbull to the new Academy. Few will forget the gyro-compass, or the chiffonier detail. The rest of swab summer was filled with labor, and plenty of it. Many were the aching backs and blistered hands after two or three days of carrying tables, desks, and a large variety of other equipment, none of it light in weight, to and from the ubiquitous trucks. Those trucks! As soon as we finished with one, another would roll up and take its place. We prayed heartily for them to break down. Finally our prayers were answered. Yes indeed. One day as we were going home to chow, the big Reo kindly decided to give up the ghost; so that we were forced to fall out and walk the rest of the way to Fort Trumbull! All things must end, as did our paradise on September twenty-first. On that day, our new friends, the upperclassmcn, returned from leave with blood in their eyes. Flies will get into ointment and happiness cannot last forever. It was as the descent of the wolf upon a helpless flock. We were the flock, and a very non-reg flock, according to our friend the wolves. There could be only one remedy — stoopfalls by the " jiUians " . Next day we moved into the bar- racks at the new Academy. On that d. ' .y chaos reigned supreme. Order of a sort was established, however, and we spent the remainder of the week assisting in making the new place ready for classes. These were added to our already long list of burdens on the following Monday, September twenty-eight. And thus was our introduction to the Coast Guard ot stab! made complete. [110] T Not many days were spent in our new home before we took cognizance of the fact that Connecticut College lay only a few steps from our own front gate. The old " snaking " instincts were aroused, and all reptiles responded nobly to the call. The Class of ' 36 has since been well represented at all the functions of the college. After the beginning of classes, time passed with fearful rapidity for all hands. Quizzes, lectures, themes, logarithms, cosines, ad infnilinii. all conspired to keep us engaged in feverish activity. Hallowe ' en came, and we blossomed forth in an amazing array of costumes. Then came Thanksgiving, a day of high festival. The after-dinner show, pre- sented for the benefit of the upperclassmen, was pronounced a howling success. All the scandals for years past were unearthed and brought to light for the dis- comfiture of said upperclassmen. Next came the Cabaret Dance on the night before Christmas leave, which was our first official dance. Here we learned the meaning of two little gestures, peculiar to upperclassmen. Then ten days of glorious freedom from details, formations, and other necessary- evils in the life of a swab. Our happiness was marred only by the thought of the oncoming mid- years, hanging like a dread cloud on our horizon. This, however, in no way discouraged us in the assumption of a most seagoing swagger as we walked down the streets of our Podunks. Kings for ten short days, and then the inevitable return to earth! Mid-years came with its frenzied flurry of boning for exams and its formal dance, and was gone almost before we had time to breath deeply. The rest of the year passed uneventfully enough, until Grad Week; and here we are — prac- tically Third Classmen, embryonic salts of the first order.

MILITARY Military in the sense that we are always ready; that we pride ourselves on our carriage, our discipline, our spirit; that our Ser- vice has never known defeat; that we are, and shall ever be, a fight- ing unit; that orderliness and routine are part of our lives- Here, then, is the " why " . - - - - 1 « Y 5s J ii The Battalion MILITARY This element in the Academy cosmos fulfills a dual purpose. First, as one would expect, it forms an essential portion of the training for a Service which is martial as well as nautical, second, it provides a more efficient control than probably any other system of interior government. In outlining the structure and function of the cadet organization we hope to explain how these objects are attained. Carpenter Battalion Adjutant Smith Battalion Commander I 117 Hf A Company The basis of the design is the battahon, composed of two companies each containing two platoons of three squads, with a definite position for ever) ' cadet. This plan is followed in assignment of rooms, roommates, and places at mess, in addition to furnishing an orderly method in conducting the daily schedule. The posts of responsibilit) ' are allotted prmiarily by classes, with first class- men as battalion officers and pett) ' officers, second classmen as platoon squad leaders, and so down the line. Within a class, the various stations are filled according to the relative qualifications of its members, the selection demanding careful judgment, especially with the first class. Oren Platoon Leadei Reed Company Coftnnander Harned Coinp iii) Adjuuni Walsh PlMoon Leader [ 1 18 B Company From appointment to graduation, a cadet lives under an exacting code of regulations enforced by commissioned officers. However, the corps is largel) ' self governing, each class holding those beneath to the standards, and the first class sharing with officers the power to apportion demerits to offenders. The battalion officers are particularly charged with upholding the regulations in their respective commands, instructing underclassmen and conducting room and per- sonal inspections, as well as setting example by their own actions, so that the discipline of any unit is a reflection on its leader, whose appointment is therefore no sinecure. In addition, a one day tour of duty is taken in rotation by first classmen Thayer Platoon LejJei HuTSON Company CoKnunJer Herbert Company Adjm.int McC. FFERY Platoon Leader [119; as cadet officer of the day, who is directly responsible for handling the routine and maintaining order; he is assisted by a guard of the day, similarly taken in rotation by each squad, whose members perform the duties of bugler, orderly, color guard, etc. All this is aside from the actual military training which constitutes part of the course. Four hours a week are designated for drills, which include the rudi- ments of open order, artillery, ceremonies, and exercise under arms, and intensive practice in close order. Also, cadets receive classroom instruction in tactics, the rules and principles of military science; in the four year course this subject comes during the first class year. Twice a week the battalion sallies forth in the accouterments of war to the parade ground, the gymnasium, or nearby streets, depending on the weather, to go through the various tactical evolutions, from the school of the soldier to battalion parade, all m arked by that never-ending marching which develops into such acute discomfort, although somewhat alleviated by occasional rest periods when the simple privilege of standing at ease and talking affords singular relief. It is possible that some cadets genuinely enjoy it, yet since a declaration of such enjoyment might easily result in violent physical disapproval by classmates, to date, no instances are recorded of cadets who would drill for the fun of it. Month after month the monotonous round continues, broken by periodic reviews or parades, and infrequent ceremonies on special occasions, until the approach of graduation instills a new zest into the proceedings. Graduation week is replete with colorful military activities — baccalaureate parade, formal retreat, graduation parade, and drills for the best company, platoon, squad, and individuals, in all of which the livening spirit of competition becomes dominant, accompanied by a touch of glamor to which even the self-styled cynical cadet is not immune. Following this, the cruise finds drill enjoyable by its absence except for the first few weeks spent at the range in small arms firing. This, then, is a brief resume of the character and modus operandi of the organization; the extent of its influence is far wider. Beyond the pomp and display of marching men is the record of performance in times of national emer- gency, which in itself is evidence sufficient to justify the investment. More intangible, though no less significant, is the imprint left on the individual. Quali- ties which every officer should possess — leadership, self-confidence, dignity, judg- ment — these are but a few of many, all of which are inescapable features of its training acting to enhance the morale of the Academy and the caliber of its graduates. As it is today, the system is in a state of evolution, although the funda- mental scheme remains the same throughout; the transfer to the new Academy, for instance, introducing any number of new factors to the situation. The gen- eral success of the plan in adapting itself to the changing conditions is another proof of its soundness and value. As a conclusion, it is fitting to give credit to Lieutenant M. H. Imlay, whose efforts have been largely instrumental in bringing the real into nearer coincidence with the ideal.

Originally it was merely a handbook of information for the incoming fourth class as to their conduct and their place in cadet life. Recently it has been enlarged and is now intended for every cadet. The ' 3 2- ' 3. volume includes a few words from the Superintendent, a mes- sage of counsel and condolence for each class from the president of the preceding class, a condensed history of the Service, a compact definition of such requisites in an officer and cadet as honor, courtesy, and obedience, a description and map of the new Academy, and the daily routine. The book gives the calendar of events for the year, a schedule of all sports, all activities, and a glossary of cadet expressions, songs, and yells. The publication of " The Running Light " has been a difficult undertaking because of the wide range and scope of its contents, but it has more than rewarded those who have worked so diligently — there are none who can say that the " little blue book " has failed in its objective. 1125 1 A THE GLEE CLUB There is soul-satisfaction in knowing that one is permitted, nay, encouraged, to pour forth his heart in lusty song.

Comradeship at the Academy is governed by the class system, a system obviously doomed to failure in an activity which includes all cl asses on an equal status. These facts define in themselves the need of some organization exclusively for athletes, to cement the brotherhood of the playing field and add significance to the symbolic letter. The want of such a society was felt in the past, but due to a lack of room and a certain vague prejudice against " fraternities " , the movement never passed beyond an extremely informal stage. However, the shift to the new Academy resulted in an increased program of intercollegiate competition, while the reserva- tion afforded ample physical facilities for the existence of the association. Thus the Monogram Club has come into being. As yet it is still somewhat embryonic, but the spirit is there and in the years to come it must mature.

THAT FIRST FORMAL To the fourth class this introduction to monkey jackets, their structure, operation, behavior, and habits, is ever a revelation in discomfort, as evinced by the painful movements and ghastly smiles. Fortunately, the indurated upper- classmen do not share this martyred sensation, but consider the opening bout of the season an opportunity not to be neglected. CABARET DANCE Put on your red dress, lady, -we ' re going Bohemian, and right out in public at that. The time is just before Christmas leave, the place is the Mohegan Brawl Room, and the intention is strictly dishonorable. ( Fancy a cadet being dis- honorable!). This shindig is the annual attempt to strike a lusty blow for the cause of cosmopolitanism, and let the welkin ring! [129] p MIDYEAR FORMAL Having safely passed through the Valley of the Shadow of Exams, a desire to celebrate on a large scale is the immediate mental reaction of the examees. Heaving out of the slough of despond with a mighty gasp, they carry C, G, A. preferred on to a remarkable high in a ceremonial rite of general rejoicing. SPRING FORMAL Gales howl from the northeast and robins lie stark in the snowdrifts. It is spring in New London. But finally the ice breaks up, the grass recovers its complexion, the trees grow little bumps — all the usual phenomena. It is the call of the wild, and a suitable festival of commemoration is inevitable. Nuff said. GRAD HOP Swarming over the menacing hurdle of final exams, the cadets thunder into the homestretch and finish in a wild scramble on graduation night. In the pink of condition and aflame with the spirit of battle, they burst forth to settle the this here now social question once and for all. Despite the mixed meta- phors, you get the idea, huh? CLASS AFFAIRS These include ring dances, tea dances, and supper parties, given by and for the members of a class, and are probably the most fondly remembered of them all. A cadet shares all the troubles of Academy years equally with his class- mates, it is but natural that his happiest hours should be with them. Care is forgotten in the delightfully mtimate atmosphere of these little affairs, and friendship forever enhanced. (Jiic ' il lhi L liitnrni ' l Rtteptio!?

The schedule was the longest and most ambitious yet attempted, but the boys responded splendidly and were every- where well received. The season started with veritable battles of music with several of the best professional orchestras of Rio, and continued w ith tea dances aboard the cutters, and with other performances throughout the remainder of the cruise. Fame preceded the cadets all summer. At every port there were represen- tatives of various musical organizations, waiting on the dock, to confer with the leader of this renowned orchestra. Such a reputation is not acquired without reason — the members are to be congratulated on their respective meritorious efforts. The brilliant season was capped by a widely acclaimed performance at the annual Cabaret dance in December. The cadets responsible for the aforementioned successes were Bjorge, Rollins and Johnson, a sax trio that Guy Lombardo has been trying for years to inveigle into enticing contracts, Holtzman, the imperturbable drummer who at times isn ' t so self-contained, Werst, who assails all music-loving ears with moans from a trombone, and Thayer, who plays any and all kinds of stringed instruments ( " hum- strungs " a specialty) in inimitable fashion. Leader Bjorge ' s fiddling ability rivals that of Rubinoff, a great loss to the square-dancers. New members this year are Muzzy and Ottinger, trumpets; Bochenek, banjo; and Ellis, violin.

The months of study are over, demerits cease to threaten. New England ' s winter is transfigured into spring, for a brief period care ceases to be in the pleasure of the moment and the promise of the future. The gradu- ates, heaving a mighty sigh. " At last! " , visualize the whole world haloed by a half inch band of gold, the upper classes rejoice in the prospect of new powers, while the down trodden fourth class looks to the end of swabdom and the cities over the sea. Each day has its fea- tures — races, dances, drills, games, — for ouc e the capacity of the cadets for diver- sion is approached in the program; it may even be exceeded in the culminating festivities of the graduation ball. The suggestion has been advanced that this celebration should be followed by a few quiet days of recuperation; however, it is still an untried theory. The new- ensigns scatter in frenzied haste, and like- wise disappears peace as confusion de- scends on the barracks in the welter of preparation for the cruise. 134 Dcpjrtini : h.ig, h XM K - " Kdydets After a few days of this cDmcs the order for departure. Patrt)! boats come alongside the Academy wliarf to transfer the cadets and all their gear to the cut- ters. One last night on beds with springs, one last mess on white linen, then away, the boats piled high with boots, sextants, seabags, and their ex- cited owners. Compared with the ensuing tumult on the ships, the previous scene pales into insignificance. A few first classmen dash madly about attempting to establish order, the majority promptly appropriate the best bunks and start criticizing the food, the third class, new aboard ship, effectively block all the passageways, the vessel ' s organization topples, to the con- sternation of the crews, and chaos reigns supreme. Fortunately, however, confusion is soon dispelled, though it threatens throughout the next three months; one last date, then, goodbye New London, amid conflicting emotions. Painful memories of past cruises contend with hopeful anticipations of new ports; the comforts of home vie with the call of wanderlust. Try and guess which wins in the next few pages.

Marine barracks spread loosely about .1 single street, the sun glared overhead — we were there — it was all over but the shooting. That v as enough. Shooting, it ap- peared, did not count unless one began the day at 5:30, and there were other rules, too. For every balky telephone, every lost sight cover, every smokeless smoking lamp, every jammed ramrod, or every battered shoulder, the score in- cieased two points, while no end ot merit v.as acquired should the two miles to the r.mge be covered on the run. It was straightway evident that this business of hitting the bull was a science, an art, and a game, also that the Marine coaches were masters at it; under their instruction the cadets fared quite credit- ably. The habitual social crusaders at once girded up their loins and sallied forth, returning either guardedly silent or pro- claiming the wonderful times they ' d had, etc., and How soon was chow. ' ' A con- siderable number ventured to Washing- ru ei ■ ■ ' . Bn.iJ L. ' Ui ton or Annapolis, while a lucky few with nearby homes tore oft ' on overnight liberty, thereby reviving the old feud of which section got least liberty, to rage merrily the duration of the summer. Just as everyone was beginning to en- joy firing, the cutters left Quantico, tying up shortly after at the Washington Navy Yard, where several Navy officers con- ducted a visit through the Gun Factory; oddly enough, it was both instructive and interesting. Meantime, some ar- tillery fan had spotted the ship ' s guns, so on return the cadets met a swarm of greasy cannon mechanics at work, with massive fragments of ordnance strewn over the decks. Next morning found the guns miracu- lously reassembled, and most of the corps flat broke from a night of liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Again the lines were taken in, and the squadron dropped down the reaches of the Potomac, bells tolling past the columns of Mt. Vernon, to anchor in Hampton Roads. A day for fueling, during which the solvent members made last minute foraging ex- peditions, then the Capes dropped astern — - " what, star sights already.- ' ! " Lh.

There lay the mist, then, sud- denly the haze was shot with green — it v as land! Onward it came, round hills lifting beyond gray rocks, surf heaving lazily beneath the towering ramparts of a mouldering fortress, behind whose ipassy bulk the town sprawled over a low ridge. Pelicans flapped over the sun dappled harbor, where, once at an- chor, the late victims of sea sickness in- stantly revived and dressed for liberty almost before the turbines stopped spin- ning. But they had forgotten that official ceremonies came before liberty, several hours before, in this case, so when they finally got ashore safety valves were pop- ping right and left. San Juan was somewhat puzzling to the eager landing force; it looked Amer- ican, spoke Spanish, and smelled Egyp- tian, with no particular attractions. Ex- ploration parties wandered through the dungeons of the old castle, up and down the narrow streets, or into the verdant plantations of the hinterland. f 138 Diving for peniiie The novelty having worn oh, principle diversions proved to be swimming at kindly disposed American clubs, and con- suming fruit — pineapples, oranges, man- goes, coconuts — in prodigious quantities. The long run south was broken by a brief stop at St Thomas. Red roofs nestled against a green hillside above a blue bay in a picture of tranquil beauty which not even a coal dock could mar. The large world and all its bustle were far away matters to this little spot in tlie sea, here excitement simply was not. The population consisted largely of huge straw hats supported by bare black legs, limited as to conversational power, and strongly addicted to rest — from what ex- ertions was not clear. The cadets tramped the hills, bought ccrai, beadwork, and more coconuts, while a few discovered unexpected diver- tissement in the jumble of fishermen ' s huts yclept French Village, but no one solved the mystery foremost in the minds of all. Why are they called the Virgin Islands. ' ' One day, then up v ith the hooks, and into the Spanish Main, through the Mountainous Lesser Antilles, rolling down to Rio! ' Si.

Nightly the Dipper sank in the North, then disappeared, as the Southern Cross swung up ahead. The trade winds died, but no breeze replaced them, the very rain was thermal, and the men swel- tered, for it was the doldrums. The ocean itself panted, under the baleful heat and fierce squalls. All hands knew they were invading Neptune ' s own back yard. Plainly he also was aware of the intrusion, from the ominous portents that manifested them- selves. The old salts moved about in a highly secretive manner, and tight-lipped carpenters erected the mysterious piles of lumber on the foc ' sle heads into large tank-like structures flanked by rude thrones and substantial cages. Coded r.idio messages came in, which upon being broken down, turned out to be direful threats to practically everyone piesent, for presuming to trespass on the sacred precincts. A certain brash ele- ment received these solemn warnings in laughing disrespect; on further promises oi punishment they waxed openly re- bellious. Folks, things were tense. r " One big. hjpfiy fjinily! The evening before the Equator was reached, a violent disturbance broke out forward, eerie lights ilared, explosions shattered the night; then Davey Jones, tlie Royal Scribe, emerged wrathfully from the hawse pipe and strode aft, emitting a stream of deep sea oaths that started the pitch bubbling from the seams. As the invisble Line was appraoched next morning, a lusty bellow smote the ears of the assembled company, and the royal party swarmed over the bow, headed by Neptunus Rex himself, re- splendent in complete regalia of the Ruler of the Raging Main, after which the dirty work began, as the landlubbers were duly initiated into the Ancient Or- der of the Deep. An abortive attempt tn overthrow the proceedings was frus- trated by the loyal police, the plotters being cast into unpadded cells for special treatment. Finally the ceremonies were concluded, Neptune welcomed his new subjects to the doughty band of trusty shellbacks, and departed with his retinue, where- upon holiday was declared.

Golden sunrise unveiled the granite portals of the gulf as the cutters advanced on the wings of the morning. Serrate peaks were blue be- ond the island-studded bay. Cradled in the enchantment of it all was Rio, and V, as herself a jewel — -ater, city, moun- tains, sky — it was a s ' mphony — it was perfect. The place was cosmopolitan, and its people in harmony with the setting; at once the visitors felt welcome in the carefree environment. There was so much to see and do that the stay was all ten short; still, in hve days the corps managed to cut quite a swath. The curio fiends dove delightedly into the shops, to reappear laden with but- terfly trays, armadillo baskets, snakes (dead, stuffed), and other esthetic booty. Naturally, the scenic beauties attracted everyone, nor were any disappointed; tb.eir spell can never be forgotten — the breath taking vista from El Corcovado. with its colossal white Christ half a mile above the sea — royal palms, hun- f 142 dteds of them, marshaled in through the riot of tropical lushness at the Jardim Botanico — the miracle of the sunset from the Sugar Loaf, then the witching pattern of Rio ' s lights twinkling up though velvet night — Flamengo, Nichtheroy, Copacabana — the names themselves were music. Caught by the blithe spirit, the cadets proceeded to absorb some of the convivial atmosphere. By day they promenaded on the bright Avenida Rio Branco, ac- complished boulevardiers; by night they dined and wined themselves, or essayed the tango and maxixi (it ' s a dance). In food alone they remained conserva- ti e, cleaving to the faithful beefsteak, although a few became tangled with na- tive delicacies. Respect for the Bra- zilians increased immeasurably after sampling the equally black cotfee and tobacco. The American colony greeted the corps with open arms, arranging a delightful program, the principle item of which was the Botafogo Club party, that set an all time record for cadet dances. A return affair was given on board, the cadet or- chestra, assisted by local talent, finding instantaneous success. A hig chunk uf Buz.

Leafy branches drifted in the current, mirages shimmered all about, seals dipped close aboard; clustered ships at anchor marked the dredged channel entrance, through a steady flow of traffic the cutters followed officious tugs to the Puerto Nuevo. At first sight of Buenos Aires, eyes brightened in anticipation. This was sc-me burg! Though not particularly beautiful, at least, not after Rio, it had a metropolitan air which the Northern- ers recognized instantly, nor did it belie this appearance. Modernistic signs, automats, skyscrapers, traffic cops — all the comforts of home and then some, as it were — the cadets responded nobly. There was a statue of someone or something on every other corner, and the numerous plazas bristled with monu- n-ients; race tracks, riding clubs, and acres of red clay tennis courts constituted en- tire suburbs. Getting the ol ' kick out of life was ,1 flourishing industry, into which the cadets plunged with cyclonic enthusiasm.

Half the races of Europe were represented in an unincorporated, unlimited collabora- tion, so the problem was simple; if you didn ' t do this, you did that: Q. E. F. Some remarkable scores were made, not- ably in the gastronomical department, where several long-standing local marks were shattered. Trained on beans, the boys were in superb condition, and liter- ally wiped things up. So many invitations were received to go places, do things, and meet people, that it would have required a month ' s time and an asbestos constitution to ac- cept them all. The Cadets inspected the Armour packing plant, visited the Argentine Naval Academy, crashed the swank Jockey Club, and danced on the liner Western ' World, till they hardly knew where their next meal was coming from. Throngs of visitors stormed the gang- ways, and received inspired explanations of electric drive, in pantomime. Southern hospitality really meant something here — in five days the cadets were hanging groggily but happily on the ropes, sated, desiring rest and rest alone.

First investiga- tion found a thriving and interesting enough city, although due to holidays even the money exchanges were closed; people took such matters seriously in these countries, naming streets, plazas, and probably offspring after the calendar. Also, the change in ships precluded much immediate gayety ashore, each group, esteeming its own system less conducive to exertion, dreaded the transfer. The ice was effectually shattered by the Parque Hotel dance, where momen- tum imparted by the frenzied rhythm of an American collegiate orchestra made progress easy th ereafter. Contact! Fi- nally the last peso was spent, sailing day arrived — but no sailing. Here was a perfect occasion for hot dope artists — something was wrong with the gyro (there always was) — American interests were in danger ( from what re- mained uncertain) — a pampero was blowing outside (this one outlasted the storm three days) — gosh, what a mad- house!

Likewise v% ith the cavalr) ' school dinner, where the ca.dets suspected the apertifs had impaired their vision, for the beef was served with fur intact. Afterwards several tackled horses; only one (cadet, not horse) fell m the mud. Ultimately the delay was explained. Relations between Uruguay and Argen- tina were strained, and the cutters had been involved as arbitrators. No, it couldn ' t affect the Yankees — they couldn ' t do that. After thirteen days, peace was restored, and there came a sudden swishing sound. It was the squadron leaving Montevideo.

Queer brown sails drifted laz- ily, a mossy fort slumbered in the sun. church spires studded the sky, while houses hugged the sheer slope beneath. Ir was an anachronism; despite air mail and the surprising municipal elevator, age lay heavy over Bahia, oldest of Bra- zilian cities, dozing in memories of an- cient prestige.

" The deck was shortly littered with junk; cadets gleefully exhibited their useless acquisitions, or wrestled with fruit. The Uruguayan episode necessitated curtailing the stay to two days, which, however, was sufticient. The feeling be- tween American and native was mutual — each considered the other a curiosity ' . [148: " Gin The customary practice of indulging in large dinners met with mediocre suc- cess, due to the formidable local cookery, so the cadets drowned their sorrows in dreams. There were few sights, as such, yet it was all a sight — three hundred churches, dating to the sixteenth century — tramcars rocketing through verdant jungles — the market — by all means, the market! Every portable product of the tropics was here, alive, dead, or dying, and they all smelled. Woe to the poor cadet who unwittingly strayed in range of this sublime symphony of stench. The local cigar factories turned out stogies of all patterns, at absurd prices. If all the boxes purchased were laid end to end, they ' d be laying them yet. There- after both ships were continually envel- oped in a malignant vapor which solved the insect question perfectly. Right on the edge of the Big Woods, as it was, the town fairly crawled with zoological specimens, all for export, and scores of the critters joined the Service. Parrots, love birds, monkeys, marmosets, a honey bear, an ant eater, a squirrel, an ocelot — scratching, eating, fighting, screeching — it was a lovely problem for the American collector of ci ' Stoms.

Entering the wiae roadstead, they anchored about two miles off the town (they would). Manifestly there would be short dalliance here; take on fuel and go, that was the idea, for time was short and the homing instinct was strong. There was not much to look at — tubby freighters at anchor, somnolent town on its narrow plain, rugged Caribbean hills couchant like resting cattle — just another West Indie. It was a long trip to the boat landing, during which all previous conceptions of heat became obsolete. Hardly six hun- dred miles from the Equator as it was, the venomous, searing glare could have sunburned a stove lid. Naturally, the famous pitch lake was the first prospect, but as it lay sixty miles to the south- ward, there was no opp ortunity to pro- cure souvenirs of live wild asphalt to astound the home folks. 150 iLiimi One way of ea inx the pi, About the only alternative was to r.

Lip- ton ' s tea, and the unmistakable accent, as incongruous from the lips of lounging negroes as from those of Hollywood ' s heroes. In accordance with their policy, the English remained in the background, leiiving most of the business to lesser races. There were strapping constables black as three tons of coal (long tons), Chinese clerks as bland as Crisco, and Hmdu curio dealers who apparently had been concealing their choicest wares until the cadets landed. A number found relief from the sun in the shady verandas of the Queen ' s Park Hotel, where tmkling ice was as sweet music to the ear. others visited the botanical garden, notable for its carrion- tainted carnivorous tree and bloated, tl.i.bby orchids, and some rode out to the hm.pid Blue Basin, with its feathery cas- cade. The rest dickered in the Oriental bazaars, loaded up with bananas, inno- cently tried to eat tabasco sauce, or strutted with doggy swagger sticks. :i W ( n tll( f ollteS Strictly cjsh haih 1151 " We join ihe White Fleet S.

Well, don ' t believe it, then. Who cares.

No one knew what the position was, but what of it. ' ' The crisis was passed. Returning to where land had last been seen, they found America still there, and turned in the results, to learn that a cadet crew had topped the fleet with an expert score.

" This appeared in the papers before a game nearly every week. But let us look at the opponents. The season opened with Worcester with less than two weeks ' practice. Here the cadets outplayed, but were unable to score upon, the team that later in the season took several of the larger colleges. The Kaydet defense saved the team from being the predicted " gun fodder " for Colby, but the gains were kept to a minimum by the best team played during the season. Winning the Little Army-Navy Game of New England meant the breaking of the home field jinx. The one thing that stands out in this trip is the exem- plary good sportsmanship between the two military schools. It is a pleasure to realize that Norwich is already in the Academy schedule for the next few years. The " homecoming and dedication of the field " game leaves a sad memor) ' to the Cadet Corps. The neighboring Rhode Island team won, 13-0. (Sic.) Although the margin this year was reduced to the zero mark, as prognosti- cated by Tide Rips ' 31, it is up to next year ' s team to be the first Academy gridmen to beat Connecticut Aggies. The radio announcer predicted, " Massachusetts State should win 55-0 over the Coast Guard Academy. " Would the Cadets allow that. ' ' It looked bad at the third quarter, as we were trailing 20-0, but something, either the thunderous cheering of the Corps, the thought of that prediction, or the realization that it was the last game for five first-classmen, — set the team off in the last period, that period which had been so fatal in the previous defeats. This score of 20-13 and the fact that ours was the only team so far in the season to hold Bush, the high scoring man in the country, to one touchdown, made a fine ending of the season. It may be true that it is the score that counts, but the Corps should be proud of the showing that its team made against these larger schools. It was proven that the Academy holds a place with the elite intercollegiate football teams of New England. WORCESTER POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE— Alumnae Field— Worcester, Mass. " Not once throughout the duration of the game were the Worcester players able to penetrate deeper into the Coast Guard territory than the 30-yard line. In most instances, they were fighting with their backs to the wall. " Twice in the second period the high hopes of scoring were lost by fumbles: first on the 10 yard line after a 40 yard drive, and after Rea had gained nearly 60 yards on a pass from Forney. 16S1 1 i Drives by Captain David, McCaffery, and Forney netted three consecutive first downs in the third quarter, and, although phicing the ball on the Institute ' s 4 yard line, the Cadets again failed to cross the double stripes. Score: Academy — Worcester 0. COLBY COLLEGE -Severns Field- -Waterville, Maine. With the absence of Forney, due to leg injuries received at Worcester, the backfield, with two new men, Blouin and Lathrop, was unable to penetrate beyond the 2{)-yard line. Nevertheless, the Maine men found more in the Academy than the predicted " gun fodder. " Weakened by the hot sun and three hard quarters, the last period found the Blue and Whites unable to withstand the ground and aerial attacks of the opponents, which netted three touchdowns. The outstanding Cadet playing was the defensive work of Columbus, who smeared plays and made sensational tackles unendingly during the entire game. Score: Colby 21 — Academy 0. NORWICH UNIVERSITY— Sabine Field— Northfield, Vermont. The game of the season — the home field jinx — the Mug — ! You must win that game!! That is how the Corps felt. With Forney back in the line-up, with his kicking and passing, David ' s plunging, and McCaffery ' s end runs, the ball was placed on the one-yard line in the first period. It was most appropriate that David carried the ball over the line. Captain David for the second straight year had the honor of crossing the Norwich goal and now stands out as the only cadet ever to cross the double stripes of the Horsemen. The other two points followed another Blue and White drive to the Norwich goal which ended in a fumble. A Horseman fumbled an attempt to punt, and Shereschewsky tackled him behind the goal for a safety. The offense carried the Cadets near the goal several times, but only once could they cross the line. The defense was put into action in the last quarter when an aerial attack by Norwich was launched. The Horsemen, however, were unable to pass the Academy 30-yard line. Score: Academy 8 — Norwich 0. RHODE ISLAND STATE COLLEGE— Jones Field— New London, Conn. Another jinx to break — the Academy has never outscored Rhode Island. With this in mind, the Academy team played their homecoming and dedication game on Jones Field. 169 1 It was a wonderful game to watch. Warren David ' s consistent plunging. Ned Lathrop ' s bucking, Ray Blouin ' s end runs, and a line of " iron men " , kept the stands figuratively on their feet. But in the fatal last quarter, it was the many Rhode Island backer ' s chance to cheer. The Rams scored twice, once on an intercepted pass and again on their deadly triple reverse. Although unable to score, the Academy passed the lO-yard stripe three times and outplayed the opponents in each quarter. Score: Rhode Island 13 — Academy 0. CONNECTICUT AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE— Jones Field— New London, Conn. In this, the first night game for both teams, there was a lack of the neces- sar) ' final punch to enter the goal zone. Practically the whole game was played in the middle of the field, each team passing the other ' s 15-yard line only once. The first half seemed to be a kicking duel, with Jack Fornev the superior. Both teams unsuccessfully tried for field goals. " With one minute until the end of the game, the Cadets lost their chance to score by missing a field goal. The Academy made eleven first downs to the Aggie ' s seven and gained over 50 yards, in rushes, more than their opponents. The New London boys, Tighe, Johnsen, and Lathrop. certainly deserved the applause which they received from friends. Score: Academy — Connecticut (). MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE— Amherst. Mass. In this last game of the season the Blue and " White really clicked, and played as never before. You see. Bush had to be stopped and the Cadets were predestined to be the " stopper " . They had a good team and a 20-0 score against them at the beginning of the last period. Under the pilotage, however, of Quarterback McCafifery, Forney ' s passes to Rea, runs by David, Lathrop, and McCaflfety, and a line which was a cross between a steam-roller and a battering- ram, the pigskin was placed in such positions that Captain David crossed the goal line twice before the final whistle. It was a mighty bedraggled and mutilated squad that laughed, fooled, and wholeheartedly enjoyed their dinner, at Northampton, to return to a rightfully proud Corps and a well earned rest.

Playing one of the most difficult schedules ever attempted by the Academy, the team won six of the eleven games played and gave an excellent account of itself in every encounter. Whether the scoreboard showed us ahead or behind, whether we were sure of winning or certain of defeat, the team played their hardest, putting up the best possible hght until the final gun, and always displaying that fine spirit of sportsmanship of which we are justly proud. Co-captains Forney and Rea again led the scoring attack and, working together, formed a combination which was hard to stop. Plaving at center or forward, Forney proved to he a constant scormg threat, amassing a total of 123 points in the eleven games played. He was closely followed by Rea with 92 points. That makes an average between them of almost 10 points per game per man — an average exceptionally high in intercollegiate basketb.ill. Weller, the five-foot-four " giant, " was tried at guard in the first game and made a showing which assured him of a permanent assignment at that position. Many a tall opponent was considerably chagrined to find that his diminutive shadow had somehow gotten possession of the ball he had considered safe and was already far dov ' n the floor with it. [172 1 Corsi, playing tlie other guard position, showed a great improvement over his playing of last year, holding his opponents to low scores and himself scoring a total of 49 points during the season. He has well earned his title of " a rugged defense man. " Injuries handicapped the squad considerably. At the beginning of the year much promise of a good forward was held in Statts but a subsequent ankle injury kept him out of all but the first two games. Crotty also played a promising game at guard until damage to his leg forced him to stop playing. Nadon gave an excellent account of himself at the center position chiefly because of his ability to play a fast passing game. V. O. Johnson, at forward, started the season slowly, but by showing steady improvement, ended up by playing regularly in the last four games. Two long-standing traditions were shattered in the past season: both the Norwich Horsemen and tlie Connecticut Aggies were defeated on their respec- tive home courts, two hitherto unaccomplished feats. The other high spots of the season were the defeating of Trinity in a fast and furious contest, the winning for the second time in two years from Rhode Island, and the contest with West Point, which, although we lost, proved that the Academy can make a good show- ing against much larger opponents. Next season will find the team captained by the midget WcUer. Cadet Kerr will relieve Hutson as manager. Coach Merriman, ably assisted by Lieutenant Wendland. again deserves a large measure of the credit for so successful a season. WORCESTER POLYTECHNICAL INSTITUTE (Home) Playing the first game in Billard Hall, the Cadets staged an uphill battle to win from the Engineers, thus avenging the defeat of last year. After a slow start, the team hit its stride, and, led by Forney (who scored l4 points in the game) managed to be ahead by a single point at the half and to win by four points at the final whistle. PROVIDENCE COLLEGE (at Providence) Getting off to a fast start, the Cadet five held the lead over the Friars for most of the first half but soon afterward lost their advantage and had to content themselves with the short end of a 51-3. final score. Forney, with 13 points, again proved himself a superior player. RHODE ISLAND STATE (at Kingston) Surprising the 1,800 spectators who expected the Rams to trounce their sea- faring opponents by at least 20 points, the Academy quintet outclassed the Rams [ 173 1 throughout most of .i h.irel fought game only to lose in the closing minutes, 38-32. Rea led the scoring with 12 points, followed by Forney with 9. Corsi and Weller played an excellent game at the guard positions, not only playing an etlective man-to-man defense, but also scoring 5 and 6 points, respectively. WESLEY AN UNIVERSITY (at Middletown) Suft ' ering its third successive defeat, our team bowed to the Cardinal quintet of Wesleyan: 37-31. A slow start, which enabled the opponents to pile up a 19-11 lead at half-time, was responsible for the result. The Cadets came back strong in the second half, at one time gettmg to w ithin two points of their rivals. At this stage of the game, the combination of Goode and Allen of Wesleyan quickly ran up eight points, clinLhing the victory for the Cardinals. ST. STEPHENS (at home) The first home game of 1933 saw the Cadets run rough-shod through an overrated live from Anon-dale-on-the-Hudson. Starting out in whirlwind fashion, the visitors took a small lead only to lose it and fall far behind within a short time. The game gave the whole second team its first chance in action. Weller played a stellar game at guard, allowing the opposing captain and star player but one basket. Forney and Rea led the scoring attack, piling up a total of 25 points. TRINITY COLLEGE (at home) In a game that kept the spectators guessing until the last minute with the rooters trying to raise the roof, the Academy defeated the hitherto undefeated quintet from Trinity of Hartford, 40-31. The score, however, does not indicate the closeness of the game. The first half found first one side and then the other holding a bare lead, while the last period saw the Cadets stage a desperate but successful fight to keep the higher score. Weller played an outstanding defensive game, holding Martens of Trinit)- to one basket and two free throws, while on the offensive, he himself piled up 12 points. ARMY (at West Point) Failing to hit their stride of the previous week, and playing against a superior team, our squad took a 37-23 drubbing from the Pointers. Although the for- wards were held in check by the Coast Guardsmen, the Army showed that it had a balanced scoring machine when its two guards rang up 22 points, almost enough to win the game. Forney at center, and Corsi and Weller at the guard positions, played excellent defensive games but the Pointers were too strong to be held in check. 1174 1 NORWICH UNIVERSITY (at Northfield) By defeating tlie Norwicli Horsemen 32-23 on tlieir liome court we not only accomplished decidedly something but also retained possession of the silver loving cup awarded to the winner to keep for the succeeding year. Tlie Horse- men put up a stubborn and determined fight, holding our team 11-11 at the half. Once the Cadet combination got under way, however, its superiority became evident and, led by the scoring prowess of its co-captains, our team soon assured itself of victor) ' . CONNECTICUT STATE (at Storrs) Playing one of the fastest games ever witnessed by the Corps (who accom- panied it) the Cadet team staged a powerful offensive attack to trounce our neighboring rivals from Storrs 39-31. While Weller and Corsi held the Aggie forwards in check, Forney and Rea found the basket for a combined total of 24 points. Rivalling the fine playing of the team was the excellent vocal support given by the Corps. No exaggeration is necessary ' to say that we out-yelled as well as outplayed the opposition. SPRINGFIELD COLLEGE (at home) The heartbreaking experience of having a game apparently safely won and then having victory snatched away at the last moment — such was our defeat by Springfield. Taking a lead which mounted to 19-11 at the half in a game char- acterized by rough playing and numerous fouls, the Cadets apparently lost their scoring punch in the second half and with it the leading score. Tying the count with only four minutes of play remaining, the Gymnasts continued their scoring streak to win by four points. RHODE ISLAND STATE (at home) The final game of the season found the Academy team determined to get on the upper side of the percentage column and also to avenge the defeat suffered at the hands of the Rams earlier in the season. Playing one of the best games of the season, the Cadets attained both objectives by holding a lead of a lone point when the final gun barked. With a nine point lead and only a few minutes of time remaining, the home team seemed assured of victory. At that moment Appling, six-foot eight giant of the Rams, entered the game. Three times he received passes under the basket and easily dropped them through. Another basket, and we were leading by a single tally with the rangy Appling standing under the basket waiting for another pass. The gun beat the pass and the day was saved: 32-31.

The scores hardly indicate the true results, which demonstrate clearly that the Academy is capable of successful competition with the best collegiate teams, as confirmed by an even stiffer program tor next year. The campaign opened at New Hampshire against a smooth, well-balanced outfit. All the men being in excellent condition, each bout was a .scrap all the way, with the battlers recovering frt)m knockdowns with stamina and spirit seldom seen in amateur contests. The following Saturday found the Academy at M. I. T. with the situation well in hand, dropping but three out of ten in a fiesta of leather and rosin. Next was a trip to New Haven to take on the Yale boys in the cathedral-like Payne Whitney gym. Even though returning on the short end of the score, the cadets proved themselves on a par with the strong Eli team. Then came Harvard, whose impressive record placed her with the top notch- ers in college ranks. The first home meet was a close hard-fought conflict from which the visitors departed with a lucky victory over our somewhat over anxious gladiators. The final session brought the old rivals from Springfield, a well trained squad of sluggers who found the cadets willing to trade blow for blow, and managed to gain the edge in an evening featured largely by knockouts. [178] Following the termination of the meets, the popularity which boxing enjoys at the school was proven by its promotion to a major sport, equal with football and basketball. This feeling is largely due to Coach McCiernon himself, to whom the boxers attribute all their success, both for skill in the ring and the tine condition for which cadet teams are noted. Moreover, it is through Mickey ' s inspiration and encouragement, more than any other factor, that the morale is sustained through the long grind of training. Credit must also be given to Lieutenant-Commander Byrd, whose constant interest and support has earned for him the admiration and gratitude of the entire squad. NEW HAMPSHIRE 41 2— ACADEMY 21 , Co-Captain Walsh, handicapped by an injured right hand, literally was forced to give the decision to his opponent in the first bout of the season. The remaining half of the co-captaincy, Thayer, fought a nip-and-tuck battle, only to lose by a narrow margin in the deciding third round. Armstrong, the " Paul Berlenbach " of the Academy, easily out-punched Luciniski throughout a rousing scrap. The next New Hampshire man, Philbrick, was sent to the canvas by Smith early in the first round of the next bout. After which Smith, though new to the game, displayed able ring strategy, and boxed the last two rounds for the decision. McCabe, cool as ahsays, added the " one-half " to the score by fighting a draw with another Irishman of similar characteristics to his own. Ahearn. The first knockout of the season was suffered by Tighe, who, matched with the veteran Moody, had little if any chance to show his excellent punching ability. Lathrop, in the final bout, lost a three-round decision to McGrath of New Hampshire. It was Lathrop ' s first time in the ring, inexperience counting heavily against him. ACADEMY 5— MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY 3 Walsh here showed his true boxing ability, despite his injured hand, win- ning a three-round decision over Norton of M. I. T. In the second bout, an exhibition fight, Montrello easily captured all three rounds. Thayer, lacking the reach and height of his opponent, nevertheless took his man, making up in aggressiveness and speed what he lacked in length of arm and stature. The next decision went b) ' a hair to Wetherill of the Engineers, whose ring generalship barely saved him from Armstrong ' s slugging attack. Carlson, in a bitterly contested bout with the Institute team ' s captain, Corey, lost the decision. Corey ' s sheer determination carried the day for him. 1179 1 Smith of the cadets, lost by a technical knockout to Loftus, in the third, after leading all the way. This Liout was just one of those things — . Cadet Richey, a newcomer to the ring, showed his coolness and his punch- ing power next by a technical knockout over Thomas. Winning easily from Gaugham of M. I. T., Shunk, in the eighth bout of the evening, showed improvement over his last year ' s work. The second exhibition bout was carried from start to finish by Brunner, one of the Academy ' s hardest hitters. Tighe, making up for his defeat the previous weekend, won a hard-fought and careful bout from Collins of Tech. YALE 4 1 ,— ACADEMY 31 2 A fast left on the end of a long arm was the cause for Co-Captain Walsh ' s lost decision in the first bout. Thayer next fought to a heartbreaking draw with Gardner of Eli. Peel, one of the hardest-hitting Academy boxers, won a clean-cut decision in a very pretty three rounds with Thomsen. Ironically both Cadet Montrello and the Eli Captain, Del Genio, split open their scalps simultaneously during one of their furious mixups. Each was cut above the left eye. The referee awarded the fight to Del Genio. The fifth bout, a whirlwind of energy, was awarded to the Yale man, Sher- man, in a technical knockout over Carlson at the end of the second round. His second time in the ring, Richey lost by decision to the New Haven fighter, Knapp. The next decision went to Tighe, proving that he did not depend solely on a knockout punch. His ability shone far and above that of Eli ' s fighter, Le T- Lathrop met a cyclone in the form of Robbins of Yale, met him with that hammerlike left. A technical knockout in the second round chalked up the final win for the Academy. HARVARD — ACADEMY 3 Walsh ' s old stumbling-blocks, a man with greater height and reach, and a fast left hand all conspired to snatch the decision from the Blue and White in this bout. A decision carried by Lamb of Harvard over Thayer gave us our second loss. It was, without doubt, the most closely contested bout of the evening. Armstrong battered out an easy decision over Sullivan, giving the Academy its first victory. The next bout was another of those things — ! Peel of the cadets had the fight sewed up after the first two rounds when he inadvertently stepped into a straight left. It closed one eye and allowed the Harvard man to gain the neces- sary points for a decision. [180 1 h Smith next won an absolute three round deeision from VioH of the Crimson team. Vioh was completely outclassed and tired quickly. A technical knockout over Cadet McCabe by Haines gave the Boston team another victor} ' . Haines, with his deadly left hook and right cross, was one of the best fighters ever seen in a Cadet ring. We can afford to be laconic in speaking of this next bout: Coast Guard, Tighe; Harvard, Blair; time, one minute, twenty-nine seconds to a knockout; result, additional point for Academy. Lathrop, however, reversed things by being knocked out by Harvard ' s Smith in the final bout. SPRINGFIELD -4 1 2— ACADEMY 21 Ober of the Massachusetts team suffered a decided defeat at the hands of Thayer, scarcely being able to hold his defense at the end of that long third round. The score was evened in the second bout when Captain Connell of Spring- field won by a technical knockout over Peel. Scullion next lost on a technical knockout to Dox, the Springfield man. It was a slugging party while it lasted. Another punching fest ended in a draw between McCabe of the Cadets and McCluskey. Shunk brought the score up to ly, all by easily winning a technical knockout from his upstate oppo- nent in the third round of the fifth bout. The next two bouts were exhibition bouts in which both Brunner and Richey of the Academy won un- questionable decisions. Tighe lost by a technical knockout to Pendleberr}- of Springfield in the next scoring bout. With the result of the meet hanging on the outcome of the last scoring bout, Lugenfehl, Springfield, won by a knockout over Scalan, whose main troubles were ring inexperience and lack of sufiicient height to cope with the aggressive Lugenfehl. The final bout was a relief in its comic outcome pummeled the turtle-like Corbett for three straight rounds, while Corbett tried to protect ears, face, and diaphragm. An easy but laughable victory for White. Harry K. McClhrnon CoiU ' h White of the Academy 181 ] ■• w ' bpp , 9H|II ' A A g w , V iai» The Cross Country Squad CROSS COUNTRY Cross-countr} ' is the newest of Academy sports. In spite of its novelty, it attracted so much attention, and the season was so successful, that cross-country will undoubtedly find a prominent place on the future athletic calendar. With the only official meet scheduled for October 29, the squad began train- ing soon after leave was over. Light workouts were taken on the cinder path of Jones Field while a real cross-countr) ' course was being decided upon. The first meet was run against Trinity, between the halves of our home- coming game with Rhode Island State. The start found thirteen Cadets and eight Trinity men on the line. The race began at a fast pace with Opp of the Cadets and Harris of Trinity leading as the runners left the field. Knowledge of the course is always an advantage since it enables one to regulate his pace. The top of a long climb marking the half way point of the course saw Cadets Dean and Opp in the lead by a small margin. Apparently exhausted by the long climb, the Trinity runners continued to lose ground to their opponents. At the finish three Cadet harriers were ahead, taking the following places: Dean and Opp, tied for first place; Fahy, third; Bochenek, fourth, and Watson, eighth. (In scoring, the first five men to finish on each team score the number of points corresponding to their order of finishing, the lowest total score deter- mining the winning team; thus the final score was 18-37 in favor of the Blue and White squad.) 1S2 The following Saturday eight men of the Cadet squad journeyed to Hartford for a return meet on the Trinity course. Again the runners were off to a fast start which soon settled down to a steady pace. The end of the first half mile found Harris of Trinity and Dean and Opp of the Cadets running siioulder to shoulder, leading the field by a steadily increasing distance. The three leaders stayed side by side until only a half mile of the course remained. From that point on the race developed into a duel betvseen Harris aiid Dean, the former winning by a few yards at the tape. Opp finished third, Bochenek sixth, Fahy seventh, and Watson eighth. The time for the race was 13 minutes and 44 seconds, setting a new record for the course. And again the final score proved the Blue and White victors, this time by the small margin of 26-29 Although the season was officially ended, the squad, consisting of about thirt) ' men, practiced for several more weeks. Due credit for the success of the season must be given Lieutenant Wendland, the coach, and Cadet Oren, the captain and manager of the team. Prospects for another successful season are very bright as the five men placing in both meets are all underclassmen. A larger schedule, including meets with several larger schools, is beinj; considered for the coming season. INTRA-ACADEMY SPORTS As a means of providing a relief valve for youthful exuberance during the winter months and such times of stress as Grad week we have the Intra-Academy athletic schedule. The fact that the whole program is interclass serves to heighten the joie de combat of the contestants. All forms of varsity sport are represented in miniature in these class battles, which are generally fights to the finish — and woe betide an uppeiclass whose men, playing in this or that are beaten by underclass gladiators. The games and meets are entirely informal, the scores being matters of concern only to the combatants and their classes. The amateur spirit is preserved by the ruling that all players must be men who have not participated in a varsity meet in that sport. f 183 The First Class Crew David Olson Reed Midtlvng Bartlftt Smeionis W ' agline Speight CREW In the spring of 1932, crew racing was introduced at the Coast Guard Academy. The followers of Academy sports were surprised and interested at seeing two eight-oared shells cruising the waters of the Thames each afternoon, from Easter until Graduation. Heretofore the cutter races between classes have been a traditional feature of the Graduation Week activities, but last year was the first time a race had been staged between classes in shells. The race, however, proved so popular that it will probably continue to be a regular event every year. L ' nder the coaching of Lieutenant Miles H. Imlay, once a Syracuse crew man, and Winslow Ames, formerly a member of Columbia ' s HO pound crew, the classes of 1933 and 1935 each placed a well-developed crew on the river at Graduation. The final race was run over a Henley distance, a mile and five- sixteenths. The time of the race was very fast, taking into consideration the choppy water and the limited amount of actual practice. It was a close race, but the better timing and smoother stroking of the 1933 crew brought it out ahead at the finish. Plans are being laid this year to develop a 150 pound crew at the Academy and to enter it in competition against Yale and Harvard when these two schools come to New London for their annual practice. [ 184 : The Fhncino Squad SCHERESCHEWSKY VI ' ERST MaRSH THOMPSON GUILL Bartlftt Hahn FENCING Under the capable tutelage of Mr. Buron the fencing squad has completed a most successful season, and a team has become an actuality rather than a possibility. The squad, consisting of about seven men, has made noteworthy improvement and progress in the mastery of foils. A meet of sixteen matches was fought w ith Rhode Island State. The ability of the cadet team (comprised by Captain Bartlett, Cadets Hahn, Guill and Schereschewsky ) was demonstrated by the outcome, a win of 9-7. New foils, plastrons, and a room in Billard Hall, equipped solely for fenc- ing, give us definite assurance that this activity will become one of the minor sports on the Cadet Athletic Calendar. Plans to add epee and possibly sabre ha ' e been formed; and prospective meets sith several schools should produce an even livelier interest next year. [IS. I The Rifle Team Ottinger Schumacher Olson Muzzy Vennel CoNLEv Cascini Calahan Engleman Doubleday RIFLE Inasmuch as the Academy is, after all, very much a militar)- institution, it is fitting that we should have a rifle team. The new Academy provides for this sport in the form of a modern rifle gallery. Practice for the rifle team began relatively late in the season, and, since many of the best marksmen were engaged in other sports, the team worked under a decided handicap this year. However, several poastal meets and three shoulder-to-shoulder matches were held. The first of the latter was with Connecticut State, the second with Rhode Island State, and the third, a return match, with the Aggies at Storrs. The results of the matches were not particularly favorable for the Academy, but, for a first year with no previous training, the scores made were better than had been expected. With rifle now a minor sport, and with this year ' s experience, even greater interest should be shown next season. New equipment will also help materially. Hours of practice, and more of the efficient coaching received in the past at the hands of Jones, are the sole requisites for a successful second year. 1S6 1 Tfr--- The Swimming Team Smetonis (Af.Dhixei) Boole Johnson Bovce Teague Buxton Macintosh Baxter Cofein Herbert Oren (Cipuni) Watson Smith Henderson SWIMMING The Academy ' s first official swimming team got underway in the new pool early in January. Coached by Lieutenant E. H. Thielc, with the able assistance of " Duke " Duhaime, the squad gradually tot)k shape and showed promise of becoming a speedy team. Cadet Oren was elected Captain and Cadet Smetonis took over the helm as manager. Two dual meets were held, both in the home pool. The first was with Connecticut Agricultural College, leaving the Academy on the short end of the score of 50-27. The second meet was also a losing one, but the team showed much improvement by scoring 37 points against the 47 of their opponents from Trinity College. In the latter meet the free style relay of Cadets Baxter, Watson, Oren, and Boole, established an Academy record. Cadet Henderson was the season ' s high scorer for the Academy, with a total of eighteen points to his credit, besides establishing Academy records in the 220 and 440 free-style swims. Captain Oren, free-style man, and Cadets Coffin and Herbert, breaststroke swimmers, will be lost to the squad, through their graduation in May. However, the outlook for the 1934 season is bright, due to the abilities of Captain-elect Baxter, and Cadets Boole, Watson, Henderson, Smith, Boyce, Buxton, Johnsen, Teague, Macintosh, and perhaps some of those unknov n heroes who are even now preparing to take the entrance exams. [187] PQQCIQQ i " m The Wrestling Team Anderson Hicks Cascini Lafferty Phillips Ainsworth McCormick Harned (C. ' ' .i ff) Ravburn Dean Hancock WRESTLING If the wrestling season should be judged by the number of bouts won and lost it could not be considered completely successful. But, from the standpoint of experience, it has been most auspicious in priming the squad for the coming year. Lieutenant Imlay, assisted by Cadet Anderson, has worked hard with the wrestlers. He took them as very raw beginners, and in a period of two months had gotten them into shape for a formal meet with Rhode Island State College. In this sole meet the team was defeated, scoring only once when Cadet Dean won from his opponent by a time decision. Rh(.ide Island showed marked superiority, but this was due mainly to the Cadets ' utter lack of experience. The fighting spirit, grit, and determination shown by the team promise a bright future. The sixteen members who constitute the squad worked with honest effort throughout the season to establish wrestling as a recognized winter sport on the Academy ' s Athletic program. Except for the loss of two men. Captain Harned and Cadet Anderson, the squad will open its practice session next year with the same members. The team felt the loss of Cadet Anderson, not only by reason of his wrestling ability, but also because of the assistance he had rendered in coaching the squad.

S. Engi- neer cutter " Wah-Ta-Wuh. HERE ' S PROOF THAT MONEL METAL PROPELLERS CAN ' TAKE IT " Nearly two years ago, the U. S. Engineer cut- ter " Wah-Ta-Wah " was equipped with a pair of Monel Metal propellers. A recent inspection re- vealed these wheels to be in excellent condition after 18 months of constantly bucking the cur- rents and driftwood of New York Harbor. When the " Wah-Ta-Wah " was previously equipped with less rigid wheels, she had to be hauled out about every six weeks for propeller repairs or replacements. Since it ' s a pretty costly job to drydock this vessel every time a propeller " goes haywire, " the use of Monel Metal wheels has saved real money, and has enabled the U. S. Engineers to keep the ship constantly on duty. Such performance shows the kind of stuff Monel Metal propellers are made of. Strong as steel, tough and rigid, they will withstand the shocks which cripple vveaker propellers. Due to their greater stiffness, they ' ll chop cleanly through driftwood that would bend an ordinary pro- peller blade. Rust-proof and highly resistant to corrosion, they never pit or lose weight un- evenly. Processed lo mechanical perfection, they are absolutely uniform in pitch, blade angle, balance and size.

The United States Coiist Guard has added six 38 ' Picket Boats powered with Ilall-Seott INVADERS to its Atlantic Seaboard fleet. These boats, built by the Corsair Boat Company of Trenton, Michigan, are dupli- cates of the fifteen built in 19.31 by the Gibbs Gas Ell ;ine Company of Jacksonville, Florida. They maintain a speed of 26 m.p.h. and are excellent sea boats, having proved the finest equipment in the Coast Guard service. That the United States Coast Guard has again used Hall-Scott INVADERS in this par- ticular model speaks well for equipment that has been on the market for only slightly more than a year— a worthy carrying on of the Hall-Scott tradition. If you are seeking a sturdy, dependable, economical engine for express commnterand fast cruiser service, examine the many points of superiority of the Hall-Scott INVADER. • Hall-Seott llotor Car Company ' Division 4»l ' Aiiici ic;iii (!;ir iiiiil I ' iiii4lrv Motors Co. 254 West 31st Sirfcl.

In 1928 the old cutter BEAR was withdrawn from service, after forty years in tlic Coast Guard. The Class of 1929 had the well-llvnown marine artist Charles R. Patterson paint a picture of the ship at sea and the class presented the painting to the Cadets, and used a reproduction as a frontispiece for the 1929 Tide Rips. In order to make the picture available to the friends of the .Service, a limited edition cf a larger reproduction was ])rinted. sixteen by twenty inches in tlie color, very suitable for framing. Part of these copies have been sold, so that all funds now received are avail- able for the use of the Cadrt Athletic Association.
