BECAUSE of your long and faithful service to your
country and the Coast Guard, and the traditions
that you have always upheld,
Because in your position as Superintendent of the
Academy and now as Commandant, you have so un-
selfishly given your time and sound advice to those
coming under your inhuence and command,
Because of our affectionate regard for you, our
appreciation in following a leader who is a scholar,
seaman, navigator, officer and gentleman, we, the
Staff of 1934-, dedicate this edition to you.

HEN war was declared against Great Britain on June 18, 1812, the Revenue
Cutters were fully prepared and standing by at their stations ready to defend
the coast and commerce of the country.
At the commencement of the hostilities, sixteen Cutters, each of about one hundred
and twenty-five tons, carrying six to ten light guns and a complement of flfteen to thirty
men, were ready for service. The vessels kept their previous assigned stations, always
ready to sail in pursuit of any British vessel that was seen or reported in the vicinity.
The cutters were always outnumbered, both in men and guns, in every engage-
ment in which they took part. In spite of this handicap, their captures were many and
their losses few.
On June 15, 1813, the cutter SURVEYOR was captured by a surprise boarding party
from the British ship NARCISSUS. The barges containing the boarders were discovered so
close by that the deck guns could not be brought to bear on them, and a hand-to-hand
encounter ensued on board the cutter. After a terriflc .battle in which both both sides
suffered rriany casualties, the Revenue cutter captain was forced to surrender. His sword
was refused by the British captain because of the gallant flght put up by the American
crew against such superior odds.
The cutter VIGILANT of Newport, sighted the British privateer DART off the
harbor before sunset, and the captain called for a volunteer crew and set out in pursuit.
After a short chase, the privateer was overtaken and captured by boarding after a short
encounter on the decks of the DART.
The Revenue cutter MADISON, one hundred and twelve tons, equipped with six
twelve pound riHes and a crew of thirty men, made many captures during the war. Some
of her many seizures were: the SNOW, mounting six heavy guns and a quantity of smaller
pieces; the schooner WADE arid the privateer brig SHAMROCK of three hundred tons,
mounting six guns and carrying sixteen men. The MADISON was captured, however, by
a superior force of the enemy in 1813.
The compactness of the cutters and the Yankee ingenuity of their othcers and crews
were the reasons for such a notable record as they made against the British ships. The
abilities of the men can best be brought out by the words of a British privateer captain
who said, uYou fight vessels three times your size, having guns outnumbering you flve
to one, and crews that are not even comparable in number; yet you carry on and we
suffer untold casualties. I am at a loss whether to admire your many victories, or the
manner in which you dispute the command of your deck, inch by inch."

LEXANDER HAMILTON, the first man in charge of the Treasury Portfolio, was
A at once impressed with the necessity of founding a service to protect the revenue
of the young republic. By use of persuasion with committees in the government and
arguments showing the illicit trading, smuggling, and the increasing danger to the reve-
nues, he was finally able to obtain funds for the building of ten cutters which were to be
stationed at strategic points along the coast.
The MASSACHUSETTS was purchased as the result of letters written by the
Secretary to the Collector of the Port of Boston, instructing him to get in touch with expe-
rienced mariners and men acquainted with the conditions along the coasts who would
know the type of vessel necessary to carry out the duties assigned.
The first specifications called for a topsail schooner of about fortyrseven tons, flfty
feet in length, a beam of eight feet, and costing not more than one thousand four hun-
dred and forty dollars. Considerable trouble was encountered, as the officer assigned to
1 command the vessel after her completion had ideas of his own as to what the MASSA-
i i CHUSETTS should be, and when finished, while she was of the required dimensions,
1 1 she contained a fuller deck, more cannon, and many fancy ornaments on her quarterings
i and stem. Her acceptance was refused due to her changes and the added expense, but
1 with the influence of her master the ship entered the Service in 1791.
.1 Enforcing the various laws kept her busy until 1796, when she was deemed too small
f1:1 and laid up. A second MASSACHUSETTS, launched in 1798, served until 1803, being
i replaced that year by a ship of the same name which carried on until 1819.
The MASSACHUSETTS was one of the first vessels to receive orders as to the
general duties of the Revenue Cutter Service, and she carried them out successfully. She
was constantly under scrutiny by members of Congress who claimed that the vessel was
in reality fitted out to demand tribute from foreign ships engaging in trade with the
young republic. Many attempts were made to have her decommissioned, but they failed,
and the MASSACHUSETTS helped to lay the solid foundation of the present Coast

You are the fellow that has to decide
Whether you'll do it or toss it aside.
You are the fellow who makes up your mind
Whether you,H lead or will linger behind-
Whether youtll try for the goal that's afar
Or be contented to stay where you ate.
Take it or leave it. Herets something to do!
Just think it over. It's all up to you!
What do you wish? To be known as a Shirk,
0: known as a good man who's willing to work,
Scorned for a loafer or praised by your chief,
Rich man or poor man or beggar or thief ?
Eager or earnest or dull through the day,
Honest or crooked? Itts you who must say!
You must decide in the face of the test
Whether you'll shirk it or give it your best.
Nobody here will compel you to rise;
No one will force you to Open your eyes;
No one will answer for you yes or no,
Whether to stay there or whether to go.
Life is a game, but its you who must say,
Whether as cheat or as sportsman youtll play.
Fate may betray you, but you settle first
Whether to live to your best or your worst.
So whatever it is you are wanting to be,
Remember, to fashion the choice you are free.
Kindly or selfish, or gentle or strong,
Keeping the right way or taking the wrong,
Careless of honor or guarding your pride,
All these are questions which you must decide.
Yours the selection, whichever you do;
The thing men call character is up to you!

CC ALLY," the silent man of the class, and silence is "golden"
x; V as displayed by his demerit record. Reforming after his
swab year Ohree spotsl, he has carried on through the hectic days
with only one smear behind his name. He is self-contained, re-
served, quick-thinking, generous, and good-natured. Those are only
a few of the adjectives that it would take to tell you all about our lltele-
Due to practiced self control he can sedately recline in his chair
during Class when all the others are in an uproar and fighting bitterly
as to the situation of Boston as the authentic home of beans.
Even with the fairer sex Wally has carried out the same line of
attack, that of being big and silent, quiet and unassuming. Advice
from his pals he failed to heed and all thought he was set for a fall, but
he again proved his ability to do the right thing at the right time and
is now traveling a rose strewn path of blissful contentedness.
Keen insight and ability to do the correct things at the proper time
has endeared him to the other four of the "trusty five." His excep-
tional ability has carried the managerial end of the boxing squad
through a successful season, he, always working in behalf of the team.
Going on with his description would take pages, but it may be
said that he is competent, dependable, pessimistic at times, always faith-
ful to "Groton," and unique in his New England type of "Bastan, and
Boaut." The dictionary contains all the other things that we think of
him, so why say more?

Argumentive and aggressive, the furniture town boy is like a
boiler 01le1075 spouting OH, no safety valve can hold his steam when
he starts poppingy. Never serious but only for the joy of the thing, is
his reason for constant wrangling. The North Pole could burn, the
skies could fall, even Hell could freeze, and "Swede" could substan-
g tiate his story with some person who had been an eye-witness. This
trait keeps the rest of the class on their toes and cautious as to what is
said; for always, like the hungry lion, "he is ever ready to pounce upon
his unsuspecting prey."
llRegsli are his hobby, much to the concern of his subordinates,
who feel the weight of his mighty hand when they are misconstrued
or broken. His impartiality, dependability, and the absence of bias
and personal contacts make him well fitted for his position.
As a business manager and executive he is unexcelled. Firms
from coast to coast know of letters that have broken down sales re-
sistance of the highest caliber, and he has emerged with advertisements
from companies famous for their determined stand against annual
books. Don't ever try to evade him-give in and attempt to recover.

Imany days? And instead of giving him a few stoopfalls for not being more ex-
plicit, we paused to give the idea a secondls thought. No, it won't be long now. Our
days as cadets are numbered. Just a few more formationsaa few more classesaa few
more drills-a few more quizzes, exams, and experiments. As we reach out for our
diploma and commission therels just a bit of sorrow and regret mingled with our enthu-
siasm and joy. Of course, while we were going through the mill, we griped and cussed
and wished many times that we had never left the farm, but now as the sand of the
hour-glass of our Academy life runs low, we wonder if we didnt like the whole thing
more than we pretended. Letls gaze back in retrospect for a few minutes . . .
Remember that day in September of Our first year when the upperclassmen returned
from Europe? We found our bed of roses full of sharp, cruel thorns. As conditions
underwent readjustment, we realized what a lowly position we, swabs, occupied in the
system of R. H. l. P. But the monotony of discipline was broken by Varsity games and
frequent social functions. Many of us even attained a bit of vengeance during our class
football game. tA legalized form of mayhem which went into the discard because the
cost of adhesive tape exceeded reasonable boundsJ There is no need to describe the ten
blissful days of Christmas leave or the dire day when we returned to resume our strenuous

hate to flaunt this expression, but there have actually been a great many changes in cus-
toms and routine in the last four years. No longer are fourth classmen required to spike
their hats on all three masts of the training shipafor the good old uHam" has been laid
aside. This custom was the swab's first test. Another quaint old practice was physical
drill for all hands, and six in the morning, and When this was over, there was still more
physical drill for the swabs. Aggravating!ato express it mildly. Memories of the
numerous l'Dobbin" parties for those who were not in the glee club will always linger
with us. Those short little trips under sail on cold Saturday mornings instilled in us a
tremendous love for music.
After mid-years, groundbreaking exercises were held on the site of our present
"happy home." The occasion was impres-
sive. Miss Jean Hamlet had the honor of do-
ing :1 bit of ceremonial excavating after
speeches by the Commandant 21nd Superin-
Grad week of '31 marked the last of the
pulling boat races and whale boat sailing
races. The spirit of competition was so ex'
tremely keen, that for at least a month before
the race the rival crews practiced in the early
gray dawn. On the day of the event, our boat,
cheered by the four remaining members of
our class, made a creditable showing, but was
nosed out by less than a length by the second
class at the fmish. But the sailing race was YT
another matter. Our crew, under the able ET; x f T e , ', xx.
guidance of Durk Braggins, sailed rings t I V 1 T x :
around the other boats and crossed the line an
easy winner. Did You Get IVE! Sir?
WeTll never forget that first cruise. The strenuous work and duties aboard made the
Mediterranean ports that much more enjoyable. We visited Gibraltar, Alexandria, Cairo,
Constantinople, Marseilles, and Las Palmas.
Our third class year was much the same as the preceding one, except for a slight
modiftcation of rates. The Academic Board, that grim, relentless reaper, had cut our
number from fifteen to eight. Not a great deal of privileges were bestowed upon such a
small number, but we appreciated the opportunity to "carry on."
The cruise to South America was even more pleasant than our first sea voyage. A
real, sincere hospitality was extended to the
Corps by the people of Rio, Buenos Aires,
and Montevideo. We were invited to ban-
quets, dances, and tours as the congenial na-
tives of the various cities vied with each
other in extending us the heartiest welcome.
One of the most auspicious events of
our entire lives was our crossing of the
"Line," and our initiation into the order of
"Shellbacks" by King Neptune and his re-
gal attendants. How about the delightful
chow during those twelve days at Norfolk?
Beans and prunes may have sufhcient calo-
ries and vitamins, but served twelve con-
secutive days they get just a bit boresome.

Twenty-one days of waking up at 6:30 P.M.
and turning over instead of rushing out to
formatione-just resting up from the cruise.
When we returned to New London we occu-
pied the new Academy. To say that we were
well pleased with our new home is putting it
mildly. After two years at Fort Trumbull,
the brick buildings and spacious reservation
were innovations surpassing our fondest
hopes. But even the angels in heaven have
to practice on their harps and we found a bit
of irony in the fact that the duty officers

EMEMBER how bright the moon was last night? There's something paradoxical
about a spring night. Itls as voluptuous as an opium dream and yet as innocent as
a childls smile. Anyway, the warm breeze wafting the sweet spring air through the open
window stopped my studying. I found the suggestiveness of bursting buds and sprout-
ing verdure completely incongruous with smokeless powder, alternating currents and non-

OULD it have been a whim of fate which caused our motley group to be assembled
at old Fort Trumbull 0n the seventeenth of August, nineteen thirty-two? Though
few of us could answer that, or would even care to try, we do know that the significance
of iiDer Tag" means more to us than the date!
There we were-drawn from various phases of civil and military life-by an inex-
plicable desire in to become officers in iiTHE" Service!
Confronted by a quartet of newlyecommissioned ensigns we soon lost our identities
as civilians, and were ustoop-falled" and ustraddle-jumped" into Regulation Kaydets of

our "R's" and oars, that we hardly realized when September fifteenth was at hand. The
upper-classmen had come and gone; tnot entirely unnoticed, we admitD-and their
promises of iisessionsi' in the future gave us much food for thought!
However, we had little opportunity for mental gymnastics. Still busy as the pro-
verbial one-armed paper-hanger, we directed our energies to lifting bodily-we emphasize
bodily-every movable article at the iiold" Academy, and trucked it to our new home, in
preparation for the coming year.
Gyro-compasses, safes, chiffoniers, and a myriad of other weighty impedimenta,
including the class gold-bricks, provided us with enough work and worry to asborb all
our "wim, wigor and Witalityh !
As we review the activities of that first Academic year, with its whirling maelstrom
of work and study, we wonder how we managed to delve into the mysteries of Astron-
omy, Descriptive Geometry and Stereographic Projections, in addition to the lesser LU

our class, that ships need stones, heavy, grassy, bulky stones, which we shouldered up the
gangplank and down into the hold. Finally we were off to Norfolk, where we stopped
long enough to meet the girls at the beachathen away!
Perhaps it would be better to pass lightly over those first days at sea, as the remem-
brances of standing long hours of watches, loss of sleep, and seasickness are not too
pleasant. The Azores were two days astern when Portugal came up out of the ocean. At
Lisbon began those tours and liberties which meant EUROPE for us. Probably the high
points of Europe differed for each cadet, but few of us will forget the first experiences
with a foreign language in Lisbon, the 'unting season in Hyde Park of dear old uLun-
non," Tivoli and the bicycles of Copenhagen, the cigarette incident at Hamburg, the
hotel parties and night clubs in Berlin, painting the ships at Havre, or the great circle LU
courses to Oi R- B., Paris. Out of the harbor at Havre we came,
headed into the setting sun, homeward-bound
at last; luxurious days through the Gulf

I spent the remainder of the day orientating myself, and, tired by my long trip, I

I dismissed the matter from my mind, turned over and went back to sleep. A few
moments later I awoke to hnd some individual standing beside the bed and inquiring
with ill-concealed curiosity why I wasn't at the formation.
"Formation? I asked wonderingly. IIWhat is a formation?"
A little discussion brought out the fact that all cadets were expected to join a jolly
little gathering in the quadrangle each morning. I decided to enter into the spirit of the
thing, and after a few minutes joined my classmates below.
"Right dress!" someone shouted.
"Thank you, my good fellow," I answered, "I rather pride myself on the correct-
ness of my attire."
A stern look from the gentleman with the two broad gold stripes on his arm silenced
me. Evidently I had made a faux pas. I resolved that in the future I would be a bit more
careful. At the next formation when someone said "Right dress" I merely smiled
At our next gathering we found a cheerful, stocky man before us. He began to say
something about exercise.
"Take for examplejl he said, "the case of Mr. Yhaf, Cadet third class. Before he

onions, carrots and all sorts of things. The results of my course will amaze you. I might

The MCCULLOCH was used in the Battle of Manila Bay, having the important
position of protecting the first line of firing ships from a surprise attack on their rear

A truly great vessel was the uHarriet Lanef' and she carried the pride of the
Revenue Cutter Service to many far-off points on the globe.
Constructed and launched in 1855, she was one of the first ships of her type to use
steam for propulsion. Fine lines and speed of around fifteen knots marked her as a for-
midable menace to the slave traders that preyed along the Carolina coasts.
As part of the Navy fleet to South America she distinguished herself as being the
first vessel for efficiency and performance. On the return from the expedition, the
Admiral commanding the fleet in his report to the Secretary of the Navy stated that uthe
Lane was by far the best ship of the fleet, and she was at all times ready to carry out all
duties and assignments."
At the outbreak of the Civil War, the Lane was transferred to the Navy Department
and used as a convoy to the troop and provision ships of the North. With her rigging
and armament changed, the Lane was in reality a heavier armed ship than any operating
in the Navy at the time. She was active in the attack on Hatteras Inlet, and caught on
the bar when passing over after her commanding officer, Captain Faunce, signalled to the
hagship that his ship was of too great a draft to pass over safely. After lying on her
beam ends for fortyeeight hours, she washed off after everything had been dumped over-
board to lighten up the ship.
She took part in the attack on Fort Jackson at New Orleans, and later acted as the
flagship of the Mortar Flotilla of Admiral Porter's fleet.
During an engagement against a Southern fort the Lane was captured and turned
against the North. Her speed and maneuverability were so superior to the ships of the
opposing forces that she gained great fame as a HBlockade runner."
The war ending, the Lane was towed from a Southern port to Hoboken, New Jersey,
and decommissioned. After rotting for several years, the ship was purchased by private
interests and named the ilHelena Ritchie." She was last heard of as foundering in a
hurricane in the Caribbean Sea.

PLENDID sailing ships and fine steam vessels carry on the commerce of the world,
S plying from one seaport to another, continually engaged in a battle with the elements
of nature. Safe passage depends on the sturdiness of the vessel and the judgment of her
master, but when the hurricane combats them, no matter how strong the ship, or experi-
enced her Captain, the sea takes its toll. What were once fine appearing vessels are in a
few short hours reduced to Heating hulks, derelicts, with their courses at the mercy of the
wind and waves, and their presence a menace to navigation.
The "Three Marys," out of a Southern port bound for Cuba loaded with cotton
goods and lumber was caught in a hurricane and totally wrecked. Her crew were rescued
from the fate of many sailors, when they were Picked up by a passing merchant steamer.
The Cutter iiComanche," on patrol, sighted the floating derelict, and after several
attempts, put a line aboard and towed her to port, turning the remains over to the original
owners. An offlcer serving on the vessel at the time says, uThe vessel was completely
stripped. Her masts were broken in several places, the pieces being held to the vessel by
the attached rigging. The broken pieces were projecting from the sides like the quills on
a porcupine. She was lying head to the sea and the wreckage completely surrounded the
ship. In coming alongside of the wreck it was necessary to work up under her stern and
climb aboard and secure the hawser from the cutter. It was ticklish sort of work, as there
were a large number of good-sized sharks about both ships and boats, gazing longingly
up at us like a bunch of baldheaded men at a burlesque show."
Numerous other exciting and thrilling rescues could be described, but the above
account gives a picture of the Problem that derelicts present to the Service. The removal
of these and other menaces to navigation is an important job entrusted to the Coast
Guard by captains of vessels and shippers, who know that every possible means is being
used to keep the seas clear of floating derelicts, so that their ships may go from port to
port with safety.

ARLY on the morning of April 6, 1917, official orders from Headquarters informed
all ships and stations that the Coast Guard had been transferred to the Navy Depart-
ment and all hands would stand by for immediate orders.
August of the same year found six cutters in foreign waters, assigned to duty as
convoys to the freighters and troop ships Plying over the ocean and the Mediterranean
Sea. Constant duty, it was, allowing time in port only for the fueling and the taking on
of supplies, and then requiring the ship to again set out to sea to combat the enemy and
protect Allied commerce.
The highest caliber of seamanship was necessary at all times to keep the many
ships from collision. Zig-zagging, running without lights, close formation in dense fogs,
high speeds with no idea of the proximity of the next ship were dangers that constantly
hindered the cutters.
Enemy submarines proved a great worry to the convoy commanders, who had ships
run down by constant usage, and undermanned Crews, weary from continuous duty.
Ships with engines without an overhaul for a six-month period were not uncommon, and
drydocking was an unheard-of procedure. But such conditions did not stop the officers
and men from carrying Out the duty assigned.
The ships to be in the convoy were assembled at a designated place and, with the
cutters on their flanks, they set out for their destination knowing that at any moment an
enemy submarine torpedo might mean doom. Captains of freighters before sailing were
supplied with orders and a description of the convoy, with a careful and detailed expla-
. nation of the routine to be carried out. Foreign ships and seamen inexperienced in the
use of signals made the work hard indeed. Running at night without lights was some-
thing new to the skippers and they were harassed with the possibility of collision and
the loss of their vessels. This led the commanding officers to attempt to withdraw from
the formation at night, and take a position on the flank and decrease the chance of col-
liding with another vessel. It increased their safety, but endangered the cutters acting as
scouts, as they did not know the position of the vessels that had withdrawn. thcial re-
ports, however, show that very few accidents occurred from the mismanagement and
wrong actions on the part of the officers of the convoy.
Traces of a periscope, or the wake of a torpedo, woke the ships into action. The
freighters started to zigezag so as to confuse the enemy as to the correct course, and the
cutters set out in the direction of the danger With all guns trained and firing on the spot,
with depth-charges ready for letting go.
The cutters were equipped with three and four-inch guns and depth-charge machines
for combating the submarine. The instant a wake was seen upon the water the ships
opened fire and, arriving on the spot, depth-charges were let go in an attempt to sink
the enemy. In a few cases a film of oil appeared on the surface of the water and it was
believed that a hit had been made.

RESCUE AT SEA
N the morning of January 1, 1933, the Boatswain's Mate in charge of the Chester
0 Shoals Coast Guard Station, twelve miles to the northward of Cape Canaveral,
telephoned to Lieutenant Commander C. C. von Paulsen, commanding the Coast Guard
Air Station at Miami, Florida, reporting that a boy in a skiff had been blown offshore
the previous night just inside of Cape Canaveral; that two fishing boats were conducting
the search; and that a plane would be necessary, as the nearest Coast Guard ship was
eighty-five miles away, and must fight her way into the teeth of a northerly gale and
The engines of the iVArcturus" were immediately started, and in half an hour she
was off for the search. The plane flew through the gale and rain squalls to a point
thirty miles ofTshore from Cape Canaveral and sighted a skific with one man in it making
intermittent signals of distress. No other craft were to be seen, darkness was fast ap-
proaching, and the wind, which had now shifted to onshore, was increasing steadily.
The skiff, a small Hat-bottomed boat such as are common in inland waters, c0u1d be
plainly seen from the air, The occupant was drenched and exhausted, and if not rescued
before darkness could not again be located until after daybreak the next morning. Sur-
face craft proceeding to his rescue would not reach him before dark, and his exhausted
condition, the frailness of his small boat, the rough seas of the Gulf Stream, and the
increasing wind convinced the Commander that the man could not survive the night. If
the man was not to die, he must be rescued by the Hying-boat before dusk.
, ZI. e '52."...
:MW TIDE RIPS
The decision now to be reached, and reached quickly, was whether it was worth
risking an uncertain amount of damage to the plane, or to allow the man in the skiff to
die the slow death that seemed so inevitable. The ARCTURUS, having been constructed
primarily for rescue work at sea, and the Personnel operating her having as their mis-
sion, among others, the rescuing of those in peril at sea without regard to or thOught of
risk to their own lives, decided to risk the damage and save a life. Accordingly, all Sur-
plus gasoline was dropped, and a normal landing made in the rough seas. The impact,
however, caused the left wing tip lloat struts to collapse, leaving the float hanging against
the wing. The waves were f1fteen feet high, and the pontoons were designed to stand
but six. The damaged pontoon had to be cleared away or it would wreck the wing. The
crew could see sharks hovering close by. It was necessary for someone to go over the
side and clear away the damaged pontoon, so Commander von Paulsen called for a vol-
unteer. The radio operator volunteered, and went overboard to clear the float. He accom-
plished his task, and was dragged aboard with a life line just in time to escape a twelve-
foot shark near the wing.
Three men were stationed along the wings of the plane to grab the man in the boat,
and a heavy line was thrown to him with instructions to tie it around his waist and jump
overboard, which he did, and the crew hauled him aboard and into the cockpit.
The loss of one wing tip float made it imperative to take off if possible, instead of
taxiing toward shore, so when both men were taken from the water, the hatch of the for-
ward cockpit was secured and an attempt made to take to the air. Despite the rough sea,
the take-off was well done, but tearing wing fabric made it necessary to land again.
Again a good landing was executede-a less skillful handling of the plane in such a sea
would have wrecked it, and all would have perished. The gas from the after compart-
ment, together with the fumes from pyrene fire extinguishers used to prevent the gasoline
from igniting were stifling the men within the plane, and all but the pilot climbed out on
The plane was headed in a northwesterly direction toward the coast, but the seas,
making up from the eastward, were confused and crossed and necessitated shutting down
the motors. A sea anchor was made with the motor covers, but it soon carried away in
the gale. Another sea anchor was improvised, using a bucket, the radio operator's chair
and a seat cushion, and the plane rode to this anchor easily. The buffeting that the ship
received put the main radio set out of commission, and the emergency set was put into
action, advising the Florida East Coast Patrol Headquarters of the Coast Guard of the
position and plight of the ARCTURUS.
Early in the morning of January 2, 1953, the wings seemed to be disintegrating, and
shortly after, the breakers were entered. After passing through three lines of breakers,
the ARCTURUS was beached about five miles south of Sabastian Light House. The crew,
in an exhausted condition, dragged the plane clear of the water, took out emergency ra-
tions, all loose gear, and other equipment. Flares were sent up and a fire was built, as all
were suffering from cold and exposure. Within an hour Customs Border Patrol men
arrived from Fort Pierce, and Paul Long, the rescued man, was transported to safety.
The rescue had required seven and one-half hours of arduous work under the most
trymg Circumstances. The mission of the Service
was again carried out and another chap-
ter written of her01c rescues at sea by aircraft.

COAST GUARD AIR SERVICE
HE Coast Guard has, at the present time, three active air stations, one at Gloucester,
Massachusetts; one at Cape May, New Jersey, and one at Miami, Florida. Through
an appropriation received from the Public Works Administration, five new air station;
are being constructed, one at each of the following places: St. Petersburg, Florida; Biloxi,
Mississippi; Galveston, Texas; Ediz Hook, Washington; and Salem, Massachusetts.
At the time the Gloucester Air Station was established, it was realized that Ten-
Pound Island was not a very desirable site for an air station; so it was decided to situate a
temporary base at that point and make surveys of various localities in New England for
permanent establishment in that section. Upon receiving money from the Public Works
Administration for air stations in the Coast Guard, surveys were made and a site chosen
at Winter Island, Salem, Massachusetts.
It is anticipated that about thirty planes will be built during the next year, to be
placed at the various old and new air stations. Contracts have already been let for ten
Douglas and nine Grumman amphibians.
Since the number of air stations and planes has been increased, it follows that a
suitable complement of commissioned and warrant officers and enlisted men must be
trained for aviation duty in order to properly maintain and operate the new bases and
planes. Ten commissioned Coast Guard officers are now undergoing training at the
Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida, and it is anticipated that this class will be ready
for assignment to aviation duty in the fall of 1934. A new class of Coast Guard officers
will be formed at Pensacola in the spring of 1934, to be ready for assignment to avia-
tion duty in the spring of 1935. Additional warrant oliicers and enlisted men will re-
ceive training in the maintenance of planes during the coming year.
The chief duties of Coast Guard aircraft are rescue; emergency transportation;
search; prevention of smuggling of aliens, narcotics and contraband; and survey. The
duties are described more fully as follows: Rescue-the saving of persons in a small boat
in danger of burning or sinking; or the saving of persons reported missing or lost in a
small boat. Emergency transportationabringing critically sick or injured persons from
vessels at sea, or isolated localities, where medical assistance is not available; bringing
medical attention, supplies, or food to isolated localities in urgent need. Searchalocating
lost, missing or overdue vessels, small boats or aircraft; locating reported menaces to
navigation; searching for bodies of drowned persons; searching for lost property, such
as nets, seine boats, etc; searching for craft reported stolen. Prevention of smuggling
of aliens, narcotics and contrabandalocating boats suspected of smuggling, and report-
ing their whereabouts to Coast Guard surface craft. Airplanes can cover a great many
more miles in an hour than surface vessels, and are very valuable for work of this sort.
Survey-prelimihary aerial survey of damage as result of hurricane, flood or other dis-
aster, in order that help may be brought as speedily as possible; preliminary aerial survey
of proposed construction or other projects. All these, and many more, comprise the
varied duties of personnel and aircraft in the Coast Guard.

WINGS OF THE COAST GUARD
The following instances are only a few of the many cited in Eight reports sub
mitted to Headquarters from the various air stations:
Information was received from a tanker that two of her crew were badly burned
and in need of hospital assistance immediately. N0 surface craft were nearby, so the
plane took off and contacted the ship, removing the men and returning to the base in an
hour and a half.
Planes was up for an engine-test flight. During the
e of the crew needed medical
1y afterward and taken
In another instance, one of the
trial a message was intercepted from a patrol-boat that on
aid. The boat was located, the man taken off and landed short
to a hospital.
Many stories and incidents could be cited to show the value of aircraft in life-
saving work, and many reasons Put forth to demonstrate their necessary increase in num-
bers. The planes not only give aid to those in distress at sea, but they serve those on
land as well. Medical supplies are transported to cities having epidemics; doctors and
supplies are rushed to areas affected by floods and other disasters; pictures of govern-
ment projects are taken; and other details too numerous to mention are carried out daily.
The performance of the Coast Guard aircraft speaks for itself in the official report
for 1933. The cruising mileage totalled 150,000 miles, the area searched 3,020,800
square miles, and the hours in the air 1,888.
COAST GUARD ENSIGN
AS the sinking ship wallows in the trough of the mighty waves, her crew no longer
has that feeling of desolation that grips even strong men by the throat. Despair
gives way to hope as they sight the tiny wisp of smoke from a yellow smokestackea ship
is answering their plea for aid. Now, hope is supplanted by a feeling of comfort, and
the tension is released in their minds; one of the lads has made out the red, white and
blue of the Coast Guard Ensigntthe harbinger of assistance and safety to men in dis-
tress at sea.
The flag has sixteen vertical stripes in its body, symbolic of the sixteen states com-
posing the Union in 1799, when the Hag was first adopted as the emblem of the Revenue
Cutter Service. In the white held a blue American eagle proudly flaunts the arms of the
United States, with thirteen stats, thirteen leaves of the olive branch, thirteen arrows, and
thirteen bars in the shield. The flag was made even further distinctive by President Taft
in 1910. He decreed that the seal of the Service should be placed on the field of the
flag. When the United States Coast Guard took its present form, absorbing the Revenue
Cutter Service's duties, the ensign was the flag Hown at the forettuck of her ships.
The boats from the cutter ate alongside now. The prayers of the seameneyes,
even the hatdiest, toughest, remember how to pray when cruel, icy Death stalks them-
are answered. As the survivors are snatched to safety, the picturesque Hag waves at the
cutterts truck. It is proud of the men who sail under it just as they are proud of the flag
of the "Good Samaritan" and the deeds that have been performed in its name.

OVERLAND TO THE WRECK By Perminion of Detroit Publijlying C0,
T is an indisputable fact that no organization can be very good without capable, con-
scientious leaders. N0 military service can be efhcient if its officers are not absolutely
dependable. With this requisite in mind, the importance of the Coast Guard Academy is
obviouspThe Academy supplies the Service with its leaders and is responsible for their
integrity and aptitude; therefore it contributes materially t0 the value of the Coast Guard.
By the Congressional Act of July 31, 1876, the first school of instruction was estab
lished about the schooner DOBBIN, based at New Bedford, Massachusetts. In these
early days the Cadetst training was extremely practical, with few academic subjects taught
aboard ship. In 1878, the bark CHASE replaced the DOBBIN. When the CHASE
was decommissioned in 1891, the vacancies in the rank of third lieutenant in the Revenue
Cutter Service were fllled by Naval Academy graduates. The faults of this plan soon be-
came apparent, and the school was re-established aboard the CHASE at New Bedford
in 1894. In the following year, the practice of spending the winter in New Bedford was
discontinued; instead the CHASE made extended European and West Indian cruises.
In 1900, the Academy was transferred from aboard the CHASE to Permanent.
quarters at Arundel Cove, Maryland. In 1907, the Cutter ITASCA replaced the CHASE
for the summer cruise. Three years later, the school was moved to Fort Trumbull, an old
army fort at New London, Connecticut. In 1914, the school was designated as the Reve-
nue Cutter Academy, but the following year it became known as the Coast Guard
Academy. The barkentine ALEXANDER HAMILTON, formerly the navy gunboat
VICKSBURG, replaced the ITASCA as the practice ship. The HAM served in this
capacity for several years. When the Corps became too large for her, she was augmented
by a destroyer. Finally, two first-class cutters were detailed each year for the Cadet cruise
and this is the scheme used at present.
In September, 1932, the Cadets entered the present Academy, which is fully equipped
with all modern facilities for studies pertaining to the sea, and to marine engineering-
a home worthy of the future officers, and a home to make them more worthy of the "Good
Samaritan" Serviceethe United States Coast Guard.
.. wdar'n-ee-a-wcnlw- A A
P :l EMORIES of days gone by, when men relied upon their. strength and ingenuity
for success over the enemy are revived by the collection of weapons loaned to the
Academy by Commander H. N. Perham, U. S. C. G. Arms dating back as far as the
fourteenth century, swords made by world-famous swordsmiths, and old-type Pistols and
rifies make the Trophy Room an interesting place to Visit.
The collection is the result of many years of work and research by Commander
Perham. His hobby, as this is, has carried him into many strange and remote places.
Numerous Visits to Europe and much correspondence with collectors and museums have
assured that the collection is authentic in every respect.
The collectionis value in terms of money approaches fifty thousand dollars. But
since some of the pieces are the only ones of their type known today and are not replace-
able, assigning an exact value would be impossible. There are about five hundred edged
weapons in the collection, principally swords of many types. In addition, there are about
one hundred tire arms, such as match-lock, wheel-lock, Hint-lock and percussion arms,
with a few miscellaneous articles of military equipment.
Beginning at the age of ten, Commander Perham formed the nucleus of the collec-
tion. Most of the articles were brought together while he was stationed at New London,
from 1925 to 1931. The practice cruises to Europe enabled him to find many markets
where he could buy the works of art 0f the old armorers, oftentimes from dealers Who
did not know the value of the pieces they were selling.
The most interesting of the arms have been assembled in one case, displaying
the oldest and most valuable of the swords, including a few rapiers, broadswords,
and hunting swords by the swordsmiths 0f the sixteenth and seventeenth centurieS,
Pieces by three of the greatest masters of Toledo, Julian di Zamora, Sahagun, and
Enrique Col, swordsmiths to Philip II of Spain, are shown. The most interesting rapier
is by Juanez de Toledo. The hilt is a masterpiece of chiseled steel perce' and adjure', and
shows traces of silver overlay. Another rapier, by Julian de Zamora, while not so decora-
tive, is of greater interest to collectors as it is the only one of the makerls known to exist
today. Toledo masters were famous the world over, and were very jealous of their art,
and hence turned out only pieces of the finest quality. A large, brutal-looking SpaniSh
broadsword by Col, uEspadetro del Rey," or uRoyal Swordsmith," hangs at the top of the
cabinet. Seven of his works survive in European museums and two at the Academyathe
only pieces known to exist.
In the same case are six swords marked H414" on the blade, with the Guild mark
of the Solingen swordsmiths, the so-called "Running Wolf of Passau." The date is not
the date of the sword, but was the slogan put on all the officers pieces by order of Gus-
tavus Adolphus, who led Sweden in the terrible religious battles known as the Thirty
Years War. All of the swords in this case have seen much service and could tell a
gruesome story of the most turbulent period of European history, when most menls lives
depended upon their dextrous handling of weapons, and when no man lived long unless
he was a good swordsman and possessed a blade that would not break. Firearms in those
days were costly, cumbersome, slow to load and very inaccurate and unreliable, and so
most of the battles were settled by cold steel-sword and pike. Parry cuts on some of the
old blades show that many a shrewd blow was warded off, and it is not hard to imagine
the clanging of steel, hacking, partying and thrusting in the heat of battle, as we look
at those tell-tale nicks.
In another case is a large assortment of swords and sabres ranging from 1790 to the
period of the Mexican War. Blades of the type carried by Washington, Putnam and
Alexander Hamilton are displayed here. These pieces of the Revolutionary period are
especially interesting, and some of the swords of this group, made on the first contract
ever given by the Government, are unique.
Nearby, attempting to offset the honor, valor, and bravery on the field of battle, are
swords of the court. Beautiful dress swords with rich mountings, very ornate in design,
blades and hilts magnificently finished, show the taste of the nobility in the old days.
In this same case the decline in the use of the sword as an article of regular dress can be
followed. As the French Revolution passed on, the custom of wearing the sword at all
times began to go out of fashion, and ornate swords were first replaced by weapons Of
plainer finish, and finally abandoned wholly. Now the sword is but the symbol of rank
wet: , "4w? Yea;
' and authority of the officers of the countries of the world, and actually used only by the
t savage tribes of the Orient.
In the other cases are cutlasses issued to the Continental Navy, and a percussion-cap
Colt revolving musket of 1857, the first really practical magazine rifle made. Kentucky
l . rifles, Colt revolvers and dueling pistols, distinctly American arms which made a deep ,,
impression on the history of this country after the Revolution and the War of 1812, are
displayed. In one of the cases showing the arms of the Levant and Near East, is a long
gun of about the 1690-1720 period, with an elaborate Hint lock of early Spanish style.
Anything beyond six feet of this gun was out of range. The Hat butt was rested on the
desert While the sheik on his camel used a spear shaft as a ramrod in reloading. The
i spear was carried, and was very convenient for piercing ildogs of unbelievers, en bro-
chette," after they had been missed by the gun.
In the case devoted to the Confederate arms are many rarities, including two cut-
lasses and a Confederate Colt made up of Colt revolver parts salved from the capture
and burning of the Harperls Ferry Arsenal, early in the Civil War. The Confederate
l forces owing to the rigid blockade and the lack of arsenals and factories, were compelled
to use all sorts of nondescript arms, but despite this disadvantage they waged a most gale
lent defense against superior odds. Pistols that were family heirlooms, English arms, and
weapons taken from the North and repaired, were all crude but serviceable. One of the
celebrated Georgia pikes which proved effective in repelling Shermanls march to the sea
is on display.
Hours, yes, even days, could be happily and interestingly spent in viewing the col-
lection. Each piece, in order to be seen, studied and understood, would require a great
V; deal of time. Small cards brieHy explain the history and use of each article. Even the
single case containing the effects of the late Admiral Billard would take up much time.
His commissions and medals and the decorations of other Coast Guard officers, con-
tained in this case, are something that cannot be passed by.
It is impossible to attempt even to list the items of the collection. The above is
but a hint of What will be found by one on entering the Trophy Room at Billard Hall.
I Upon reaching New London, make the Academy your first stopping point, go to the
Trophy Room, and view a great collection of arms. It will be time spent in a way that
you will never regret.

training is fundamental in the education of an officer, and it is as important as the sub-
ject of seamanship.
Primarily, thOugh a sea-going service, with the majority of its duties dealing With
ships and the sea, all the vessels of the Coast Guard are so organized that a small military
force can be landed immediately in the case of an emergency, be it earthquake or riot.
The Corps is divided into two companies of two Platoons each, the entire unit com-
prising the battalion. First classmen, rounding out their education in preparation for
commissions, hold the positions as commantiing oficicers of the various units. Authority is
passed down to the members of the next junior classes, to perform the duties of squad
leaders and petty offlcers.
The majority of Cadets, entering from civilian life, have never been introduced into
the mysteries of Tisquads right" and usquads left," so on reporting to the Academy the
new fourth class receives very stringent training in the elements of the school of the sol-
dier. The upper classes instruct the recruits, Who in a few weeks are proficient in elemen-
tary drill, so that the more difficult maneuvers of the entire companies and the Battalion
Military actions are not confined to the parade groundeat all times a Cadet leads a
military life. By turns a first classman acts as Cadet Officer of the Day, junior to the
commissioned oflicer, and handles the business coming up during his tour of duty of
twenty-four hours. To him is charged the keeping of discipline in the barracks, proper
observance of study hours, and strict enforcement of the many rules and regulations under
which Cadets live.
Daily inspection of rooms during the week is overshadowed by the strict inspection
made by the commissioned and battalion officers on Saturday morning. To pass a suc-
cessful inspection of person and room on this day, without being reported for a mis-
placed article or dusty corner is an achievement indeed. Such inspections are made not
to give demerits, but to inculcate precision, neatness, Cleanliness, discipline, and constant
regularity at all times, in every member of the Corps. Such a training for a long period
of time will never allow one to slip or slow down in later life.
All the agony, fear and worry of being called to account for the slightest offenses
are forgotten When announcement is made that a parade and review will be held. Rifles
are cleaned until they glitter, leggings and belts scrubbed as white as snow, and all hands
make ready to carry out a snappy and successful drill.
The Battalion lines up in front of the barracks, the bugle SOunds, arms are presented
and the color guard, With Old Glory and the Coast Guard flag, take their place in the
formation. Everyone moves forward at the command llmarch," hands and feet keeping
perfect time with the martial music furnished by the band. The companies are brought
into position, dressed, verilied, and the inspecting party goes around the formation. At
the next command, everyone moves out in unison, alert for the command to swing into
line to pass before the reviewing stands; "eyes right," and in a few moments the display
is over and all have a feeling of satisfaction of knowing that the affair has been a success.
May, Graduation Weekeand the annual competition for the best company and
platoon are held. Each Cadet puts forth his utmost in order that his unit might carry
home the libacon." On that day the many monotonous months of marching and manual
of arms prove their worth, for the unit winning the event is in all cases the one which
has worked the hardest. It is not an easy matter to carry off the reward for military
precision, but an undertaking requiring hours of arduous and, at first, seemingly hope-
And so-good not only comes to those who wait, but also to those who work, and
the ones striving the hardest come 03 the field of contest the victors.

h ; ?ELL done, boys! You men of the '53 football squad should feel justly prOud
of your splendid record on the gridiron. We non-combatants who could only
lend you a few rah-rahs instead of BTU'S are proud that we have such a scrappy col-
lection of real lihe men'l in our midst--rnen who fought from one whistle to the other
regardless of the score, not just to give their all to "dear old Alma Mater," but because as
real red-blooded men they loved to hght.
With three victories, a tied contest, and only two defeats for the year you deserve a
great deal of credit. Such a record attained by a school of any size would be indeed en-
viable, but when one hundred and thirty men can produce an outstanding sectional team
it's almost miraculous. But more meritorious than the actual number of wins and losses
is the way you played the game. We are quite confident that every opponent has recog-
nized and admired your clean sportsmanship as much as he has respected your fighting
spirit. Here's to you uBig Blue and White of '33. May each and every one of you play
the greater game just as you played footballowith a will to win, with all your might,

Going Up the FieM
WORCESTER POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE, Jones Field, New London
Half of the spectators had hardly realized that the game had begun when Ned
Lathrop electrifled them with a thirty-yard pass into the arms of the old "Maestro"
Charlie Tighe. And Charlie obliged us all by romping the remaining twenty yards for
the first marker of the '33 season. Later in the first period of play, after a couple of nice
runs by Lathrop, Land, and Blouin, quarterback Helmer showed a bit of real field gen-
eralship by sending Blouin over the line on a reverse when Worcester had stopped several
power thrusts at the line.
The two teams played on even terms until, late in the third quarter, Lathrop
slipped through a hole off tackle for a score. The ball had been put in position for the
touchdown by alternate line smashes by B10uin and Lathrop. Blouin kicked the extra
Point. In the final quarter, Ray Blouin intercepted a pass down near the Worcester end
and Land took the ball over in two successive end runs.
The game was marked by the splendid blocking and tackling of the entire Cadet
line. While Worcester made only three first downs, the Cadets piled up a total of fifteen.
Score: Academy 25, Worcester Tech. 0.
TRINITY COLLEGE, Trinity Field, Hartford, Conn.
Outplayed throughout the first fifteen minutes of the game and annoyed by the
sweeping end runs of Eigenbauer, Trinity back, the Cadets rose up in the second quarter
and scored a touchdown on a 45-yard march which began when Trinity fumbled on its
own 45-yard line.
First Lathrop took a pass in the Hat territory from Blouin for nine yards. On a
spinner and fake reverse, Ned again ripped the center of the Trinity line for fifteen
yards more. Marsh and Lathrop plowed through on successive plays to the six-yard
line, but here the Trinity team braced itself and withstood several smashes at the line.
However, Frank Helmet ufoxed" the Blue and Golds by sending Blouin around the
end. Ray crossed the line standing up.
Tu'o Stone "Vail; Meet
The final Cadet score came early in the fourth quarter following a blocked punt
recovered by the big Blue team on Trinity's forty-eight-yard line. Alternate power plays
with Ned Lathrop carrying the ball and passes by Blouin brought the Cadets t0 the
ten-yard line. Forced to take time Out, the Trinity team drew a costly five-yard penalty
and then Lathrop tore through the left side of the line for the touchdown. Blouin place-
kicked successfully. Score: Academy 13, Trinity 0.
MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE, Jones Field, New London
The Cadets dropped their first game of the season in this night contest. It was
hard fought to the last whistle and, although the score seems rather one-sided, the Cadets
tallied thirteen first downs t0 the visitors nine.
Boehm, elusive Panther half-back, taking the ball on a single reverse slipped
through tackle and raced sixty-two yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter.
Williams drop-kicked the extra point. The Cadets penetrated to the Panther five-yard
line by virtue of a vigorous running attack, but were held here for downs as the quarter
Early in the second quarter Boehm crossed the line for the second score as a result
of a beautifully executed double reverse. Middlebury smashed their third score across
as a result of a series of reverse plays through the tackles.
In the waning minutes of the game a couple of successful passes coupled with run-
ning plays and a penalty against Middlebury gave Ned Lathrop the opportunity to drive
across for a score. Lathrop certainly carved himself a niche in our hearts with his won-
derful oEensive smashes during this entire game. Blouin ran back several punts for
substantial gains. Score: Academy 6, Middlebury 20.
RHODE ISLAND STATE, Kingston, R. I.

White clung tenaciously to their lead, but weakened by the steady pounding of the Rams'
line. They allowed the Rhode Island team to garner three touchdowns in the hnal
stanza. What a heartbreaker!
In the first quarter the Cadets moved into scoring territory as a result of two short
passes from B10uin to Lathrop. Ripping off the tackles and occasionally sending a man
through the center of the line, the Blue and White in eight plays moved to the seven-
yard line. Lathrop battered his way through the State line for a touchdown four plays
later. After a brilliant eighty-five-yard kick by Cass, which rolled out-of-bounds on the
Rams' twelve-yard line, Castrouillani fumbled and the Cadets recovered. It took just
seven plays for the Cadets to plow through the remaining yardage with Lathrop carrying
In the disastrous final period, the Kingstonians used straight football to march
for their first score. A blocked kick resulted in another touchdown for Rhode Island
before the Cadets had recovered from the suddenness of the Rams' attack. The winning
score came soon after the strong wind sweeping the field carried a Cadet kick out on
their own forty-five yard line. Fisher and Mautenueto on a series of good runs added the
It certainly was a tough one to lose! Score: Academy 12, Rhode Island 20.
CONNECTICUT STATE COLLEGE, Storrs, Conn.
Meeting a spirited Connecticut State eleven keyed up to the highest fighting pitch
by the alumni group gathered from all parts of the country to celebrate homecoming
day, the Cadets were held to a scoreless tie on a field which has always seemed to be a
nemesis to Coast Guard elevens.
The edge was clearly with the Cadets, but the State eleven braced time and again to
repulse the onslaughts of the Merrimen. Twice the Cadet drives were stopped by pen-
alties, once in the first quarter on the twenty-nine-yard line, and again in the final stanza
of play on Connecticutts eight-yard line. Both penalties resulted in a loss of fifteen yards.

NORWICH UNIVERSITY, Jones Field, New London, Conn.
In the most important game of the season the Cadets conquered a fighting, heavy
aggregation from Northfield, in a sea of mud. It was a real "thriller"; with the grid-
iron a quagmire anything could happen and practically everything did.
The Cadets stormed the Horsemen three times in the opening fifteen minutes of
play to no avail, each time being stopped inside the fifteenryard line. In the second
quarter, Johnsen, the mighty Swede, blocked a punt. The ball bounded off llSkidlsll
chest over the railing behind the goal for an automatic safety, and first blood. Shortly
after this Norwich tried a pass deep in their own territory which was handily intercepted
by Lathrop. Cass heaved a pass to Tighe, who pranced across the line as all Groton roared
In the final quarter after an exchange of kicks the invaders gained possession of
the ball in mid-field. Then Hicks tossed a brilliant pass to Ralston, who negotiated the
remaining twenty-five yards for the visitors' score. Ralston registered the extra point on .1
rush, but the game was soon over.
The entire Cadet team played a good smashing game with Laiferty, Lathrop, and
Blouin slipping away for beautiful runs.
At the final whistle Captain Jim Crotty led a happy team off the field. With the
'lMug" in their undisputed possession for another whole year as a fitting climax, foot-
ball season was over, all overethat is with the exception of the traditional ritual of
the flopping of the manager in the pool. And we guess they accomplished that, too--
how about it, Speight? Score: Academy 8, Norwich 7.
HE Academyk team, lacking height and veteran players, carried through a grueling
Tschedule of ten hard games, never to know the thrill of victory, but at the same time
never to feel the discouragement of defeat. We wanted to winethat was our primary
bbject in each game-but no alibis are presented for losing. We are a bit self-centered,
perhaps; but nevertheless, we of the Corps are proud of our team. We honestly recog-
nize something of a real sport in him who will come back time after time playing always
to win, conceding nothing, and accepting defeat only when the game is ended.
To bring out the best that was in the team, the lineup was necessarily shifted
thr0ughout the season. Fahy, Bakanas, and Carr shared the center position, while Cass,
Applegate, Marsh, and Blouin divided the forward assignments. The back court was
patrolled by Weller and Statts. Because of the diminutive stature of the men, the team
soon became known as the ttPony Team."
The season opened at home against Middleburys Until the latter part of the game
the score was always close, with our team frequently intercepting the lead. The eighteen
points garnered by Willy Cass made him the hero of the evening.
The first week after Christmas leave the Cadets went up to Worcester. Inability to
make our free throws count cost us the loss of a hard-fought contest by only two points.
Cass and Applegate alone accounted for thirty points from the field, while Weller did
an admirable job of guarding the basket.
M 11.. A ,1
Due largely to the expert shooting of thight and Keeney, we were badly out-
scored, but not outplayed by Rhode Island State.
After an interruption of two weeks for mid-year examinationS, we again took up
the fight, this time meeting Connecticut State on the home Hom. The jinx was per-
sistent, though4this was another defeat by two points.
Journeying away from home, we fared no better and lost to St. Stephens College,
the jinx still keeping the free throws from passing through the hoop. The opponents
profited t0 the extent of fourteen points out of twenty-eight free throws, while having
only seven fouls charged against them. By virtue of this break, St. Stephens won, 42-41.
The following day the Cadets met West Point. The Army led at the end of the hrst
half 14-16, but fast playing and excellent guarding by our men justifies great faith in
our team despite its ill fortune.
Providence College proved its reputation of being one of the East's greatest teams.
They proved conclusively what good big men can do against good little men. Paradoxical
as it may seem, however, the best man on the floor was the smallest. Weller was the
hero of this game.
More determined than ever, out team went to Middletown to engage Wesleyan.
Though we held a small lead throughout most of the first half, out hoodoo, never en-
tirely absent, overtook us in the latter part of the game.
A successful season revolves about the Norwich game alone. We were not con-
ceded the proverbial "Chinaman's chance" of retaining the cup. With the odds heavily
against us before the whistle, things changed as soon as the game got underway. We
maintained the comfortable lead of ten points throughout the hrst half, but the last
period spelled out doom, as it was impossible to stop Leddy. He made baskets with
his eyes closed, and mostly because of him the basketball cup has gone to Northfield for
the first time.
Still determined to win just one game, the men went up to Springheld. A slow
start put us on the short end of the score at the half. With a fourteen point lead against
them our men came back strongly, showing the mettle that had sustained them all sea-
son, but it was quite in vain--they could not overhaul the lead Springfield had accumu-
lated, not even with Cass making baskets from every point on the tioor.

HIS initial meet of the season showed that the Cadets had developed into one of
Tthe best boxing teams in collegiate circles. Powell started the season in auspicious
style by scoring a technical knockout in the second round. Co-Captain Tighe and Gun-
cotton Richey scored knockouts in the 165- and 155 pound classes respectively. McCabe,
also captain, was brought against the best man on the New Hampshire team in the per-
son of Captain Aheam. This match was stopped in the second round, although it ap-
peared as though McCabe could have gone on. Monttello opened his season impres-
sively by a victory over Philbtick in the 145-pound class. Reynolds, hghting his first bout
under Academy colors, gained a close decision in the 135-pound class. Lathrop easily
Outpointed his larger opponent, Schuman, in the 175-pound class, while Joe Scullion and
Bob Bischoff both lost close decisions. Score: Academy 6, New Hampshire 3.
For the second meet of the year the Cadets journeyed to West Point and were
defeated by the hands of the gray-uniformed cadets by the score of 5-5. This meet
was featured by the knockout of Roberts by Richey, who displayed a sure, c001, two-
fisted attack. Roberts was game, but not able to stand up against the lethal fists of
"Guncotton" in the third round. Tighe also turned in his second straight K. O. by beat-
ing Arosemena. Tighe showed in this meet that he has what it takes to make a fighter.
Taking a beating in the first and second rounds, he came back to put his man on the can-
vas, the referee stopping the bout. Harold Land, fighting in his first meet, was excel-
lent. Staggering his opponent many times, only lack of ring experience prohibited him
from putting the Pointer down for the count.
In the opening bout Powell dropped a close decision. Speight fought a good fight
against Bennett, the West Point captain, but lost the decision. Montrello lost a decision
to Connor in a fast fight filled with plenty of action. Monty, badly staggered in the third
round, came back and landed several hard rights, almost turning the tide of the battle.
Fighting under severe odds, McCabe lost his match Wiestbrook, overcoming his initial
ring nervousness, settled down in the last round and showered his opponent with blows,
but was unable to overcome the lead which the West Pointer had established earlier. In
the final match Ned Lathrop lost to his towering opponent, being knocked out, as he was
unable to match the soldier's boxing ability. Score Academy 5, Army 6.
M. I. T.
Determined and confident, after their encounter with Army, the boxing team
made the most of a two-week breathing spell-and came through with a smashing
5V2-2V2 triumph over Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Fighting before a record
crowd in their own gym, the Academy leather-pushers decisively showed their superiority
in encounters replete with vigorous action.
Goering, new to the Academy squad, behaved like a veteran and gave the team a
good start by winning a technical knockout over Muldowney of Tech. Flooring his man
twice in the second round, Goering soon had him so groggy that the referee stopped
Bischoff, meeting Wetherill, captain of the engineers, lost a close three-round deci-
sion. Wetherill weaved and hooked in the first two rounds, piling up more points than
BischoH could erase by his last round rally.
Reynolds, Academy 135-pounder, laid Bradford 0f the engineers on the canvas for
a count of six in the second round of their scrap. He then coolly punched his way to
a decisive victory with hooks to head and body.
In the next fight Carey of Tech, with surprising speed and power, outboxed Mon-
trello in a close battle. Monty, holding back his usual fireworks display until the last
round, was too late to take enough points to win.
Land, 21 southpaw, Puzzled in the first r0und by the long reach of Leftes, was rocked
three times in the first mund. In the second Land opened up enough to split the points
with the Techster, and in the last round he cut loose with everything but the water
bucket, taking the round easily. The referee gave an edge to Land, but the judges agree-
ing on a draw overruled the referee, and a draw it was.
The Richey-Gaughan bout, unheralded feature of the meet, had the spectators off
their seats! Descending upon his opponent with the opening bell, Richey jabbed him
with a left and poured blow after blow into Gaughan's midsection. It was not long be-
fore Richey had the bewildered engineer against the ropes, and, reaching over with a
hook to the jaw and another to the middle, he laid his man out. The referee did not
bother to count.
1n the last bought Tighe, Academy co-captain, won over Thorsen of M. I. T. by a
technical knockout in the first round. Swinging that famous right, he staggered his man,
then put him down for a nine-count. The referee stopped the fight.
By far the best meet 0f the year for the Academy was fough
The cadets never used their gloves and heads more effectively than that evening. In the
best of condition of the entire season, the cadets battled to what seemed a clear-cut
In the first bout, Powell held Captain Lamb of Harvard at bay. Both men hit hard
and boxed well in a fast fight, but as neither of them showed any marked advantage
the hght was voted a draw. The small and heady Goering battled the tall, long-armed
Curtain in the most questioned bout of the evening. In the first round, Curtainls offen-
sive was greatly overshadowed by the Coast Guardrnan's counter-punching. Goering
opened in the second with a flashy offensive and easily won it. Curtain's comeback in
the third failed to have much effect on the cadet, but in spite of this the decision was
awarded to Harvard.
In the lightweight division, Reynolds chased Kunen-around for two rounds, poling
long rights and lefts to his opponent's head and body. Kunen opened the last round With
a futile attack, much to the delight of Reynolds, whose left easily reached the Harvard
man. The Ward-Bischoff hght was a slug-fest, Ward taking the decision. In the 145-
pound class, Cone of Harvard starting slow, fell an easy prey to Montrellds counter-
punching and fast left hook. In the final round ltMonty" opened with a flashy defense
and easily took the decision.
When two charges of dynamite like "Guncotton" Richey and Phil Hines meet in
the ring, an explosion of some sort is bound to happen. The bout went fast with both
men scoring frequently until the third round. Taking advantage of an opening, Hines
let go With a series of fast punches and scored a technical knockout.
In the next bout Tighe lured Lawrence to the ropes and With a hard right Hoored
him, Where he took the count of nine. The referee stopped the fight and another knock-
out was added to the uClipperis" record.
In the closing fight, Smith of Harvard held off the powerful right of White by
use of lightning left jab. Smith received the decision. Score Academy 3V2, Harvard 4V2.
t against Harvard.
The Academy leather-pushers herded the Yale Bulldog in his own backyard and
decisively whipped him. The Eli boxers had never before been defeated at New
Haven, but the onslaughts of Mickey's battlers ripped a long, broad gash across their
unsullied record. The bouts were all close and packed with excitement from bell to bell.
In the opener, Powell found Levine an easy mark for his strong left, and the
"Killer" Peppered him at Will. However, Levine was aggressive in Spite of the leather in
his face, and when Powell tired in the third round, the Yale boy shot across a few SiZ-
zling rights to win the bout by a scant margin.
The Yale Captain displayed a wealth of boxing dexterity and a terrific right. Our
own BISChOE took everything the Eli skipper had to offer without faltering for a second.
The first part of the second round was much like the hrst, but the tide turned and
BischofiC got a few of his famous "round house" swings across. In the last stanza, Bisch-
off and Thomsen ended their great fight on about even terms with Thomsen getting
The old reliable Montrello chalked up the first win for the Academy by handily
taking over Brouwer. It was a fierce battle, but IIMonty" had just too much skill when
IiEli" came inside. JohnnyIs savage hooks to the head and body decided the issue.
In the 145-pound bout, Land evened the score of the meet by using his rugged left
hand to punch out a victory over Sherman.
i'Guncotton" Richey had trouble in catching the elusive Huffman, who seemed quite
wary of the AcademyIs famous dynamiter, but in the third round Richey connected his
right Hush on the Bulldogs jaw. When the bell rang, Huffman was painfully endeavor-
ing to get off the deck.
Westbrook had a tough opponent in Loomis. The pair fought on even terms for two
rounds with IiWestyII showing a slight edge by virtue of his hard-hitting southpaw tac-
tics. In the third round IiWesty" used a hard straight right jab to slow up Loomis
and to annex the encounter.
Captain Tighe and Cates shared the laurels of the next bout. Tighe caught Cates
against the ropes in the second and cracked him squarely on the chin. Although the Eli's
knees buckled, he hung on. Cates used a jab to advantage, and was careful to keep out
of range of the "Clipper'sh pain killer.
The last bout was between Wood and Brown of Yale. For three whole rounds
W'ood continued to bore in aggressively, but Brown warded him off with a left jab.
Wood fought viciously, but the Yale boy's long reach was too much for him, and many
of his punches fell short. Brown was awarded the decision. Score: Academy 4V2,
In winding up a successful season the Academy triumphed over Springfield College,
5-2, in the final meet of the year. Not a bout lacked interest or action, the crowd
being virtually on its toes throughout the entire seven bouts. In the feature match, Pen-
dlebury, Springfield ace, closely duplicated his feat of last year by Hooring Tighe for
the count in the latter part of the first round. The first real blow of the round came
from Pendlebury when he crossed over his K. O. punch-but plenty of leather was
Hying for the full 75 seconds of the bout.
iiGuncotton" Richey, the 155-pound flash, after having spent most of the week in
bed from illness, went through three fast and interesting rounds with McClusky to win
a well-earned decision. Goering, Reynolds and Bischoff took the first three bouts with
plenty of action. Goering punched his way through a few openings in the defense of
the little Springfield tornado, Bill Ober, to win easily in three rounds. He fought a cool
and reserved fight, and at no time was in any danger. Dick Reynolds, who improved
with every battle, displayed a uwindmill attack," giving the crowd plenty of action to
win without trouble in the 135-pound class against Anderton. In the other lightweight
bout Howie Green pushed BischoflC through two hard rounds, but slowed down in the
third as the cadet mauler finished at a terrilic pace to win the fight. The captain of the
Springfield team, Lugenbehl, fought a scientific hght against the hard-hitting, brawny
cadet, Justus White. Lugenbehl's ability to pile up points won him the decision. The
ovation received by the cadet slugger was tremendous, and his charging finish with reck-
less abandon nearly won him the battle. Montrello outpointed Dox in the 145-pound
class to climax a fine season's record. Monty contented himself to score almost at will
with blows to his opponent's body. Dox, the aggressor, was unable to match the cadetls
Speed and boxing ability.
The season is over, but we may cast optimistic eyes on the coming season. At pres-
ent the indications are that the next yearls schedule will be carried through undefeated.
Let us hope that the tables will be turned against Army and Harvard, the only two
teams taking a victory away with them.

THE harriers have again shown that the Academy is capable of Producing a winning
cross-country team. Although running against experienced teams from schools
much larger than our own, the Blue and White team won two of the five meets, one of
the losses being by the narrow margin of two Points.
With less than three weeks training to put them in condition, the squad journeyed
to Kingston to run their first race of the season on Rhode Island States four-mile
course. The greater distance and lack of training proved disastrous, and the Cadets took
the short end of a 40-15 score.
The following week the team again lost by a 40-15 count in a meet run on the
mountainous Worcester Tech course and against one of the best teams in New England.
Following two defeats, the team changed its home course to one of greater length,
with a much more severe climb. The first home meet was scheduled with Amherst on
October 2nd and proved to be the surprise of the season, the Cadets stealing the show by
the score of 26-29. At the end of a fast race, Edwards of Amherst led the lield by a
safe margin to take first place, followed by Dean and Opp 0f the Academy, who tied
for second honors. Chester placed fourth, Fahy seventh, and Buxton tenth.
Handicapped by injuries, the team ran against Trinity and lost by two points. Dean
led for the entire course only to be nosed out by a few feet at the tape by Mountford.
The final race of the season was run on our own course on Homecoming Day. In
spite of the mush and cold, the race was fast, but the Cadets proved too powerful for
their opponents from St. Stephen's, and romped home with a 20-35 victory to end the
season and to continue our record of never having lost a meet on our own course.
Lieutenant Wendland again coached the squad and deserves much credit for get-

WIMMING, though still in its infancy at the Academy, proved to be a popular sport
this past season. Lieutenant V. E. Day, assisted by Mr. Erickson and Mr. Aguiar,
coached the squad. Three dual meets were held; one away from, and two at home. Our
oldest aquatic rival, Trinity, in their own pool, was the victor in our first encounter.
This meet brought out more material from the Corps, and when Wesleyan came down a
week later they met a scrappy team. It appeared that the sprints and the diving events
were to be our salient points. Paul Prins won easily against a strong field in both the
forty-yard and the one hundred-yard free style. He also established new pool records in
both of these events. Henderson took over the 440 free style and flnished second in the

season in the Academy pool. This was one of the fastest meets to be swum in New Eng-
land. Five pool records were broken. Prins again accounted for two of these When he

is hoped that the coming year will see a rise in swimming interest, as every indication
leads us to believe that we can do something in this field of sport.

Four shoulder to shoulder meets were held during the past season, two with Rhode
Island State, and the remaining two with Connecticut State College. The first three were
lost, the score in every one being decidedly close. In both Rhode Island State meets, every
member of our team shot a high score, but they were unable to overcome the excellent
firing by one of the Rhode Island men. His ability to count for 192 points won the meet
for them twice. The season ended with a victory over Connecticut State College.
The squad this year was composed of Cascini, Bakutis, Vennel, Conley, Schumacher,
Wilcox and Ottinger, all veterans of last year's team, and Lambert, Coffin and Heath of
the fOurth class.
A few more hours of practice, and continued eHicient coaching by Jones, who is a

their triumphs, and support their classes. Class spirit is ncr'esselrily 2m important factor in
cadet life, but nowhere does it come more into evidence than Ill the various interclass
IN the past few years interclass sports have come to take an important part in Academy
At present, interclass competitions are held in boxing, basketball, swimming, rifie,
handball, tennis, sailing, rowing, and cross-country. A member of a varsity team is not
eligible to compete in his varsity sport but may enter in any of the other events. First,
second, and third places count toward the tinal scoring in class standing, and determine
the winning class for the entire season. This year, to add to the interest of these already
popular events, the Monogram Club is awarding a suitable trophy to be engraved with
the name of the winning class. Values have been assigned to the various sports and the
trophy will be awarded to the class having the highest total number of points in the
entire year's competition.
Interclass competition last year was brought to a thrilling Climax by shell races
between the tirst, third, and fourth classes. The class of 1935, profiting by their experi-
ence and hard work, sent their eight-oared shell across the finish line three lengths ahead
of the class of 1936, their closest challengers. The crews, coached by Winslow Ames,
showed surprising skill, and turned up a fast time considering the condition of the water.
The sailing race was won by the class of 1936.
This past season has again seen some exciting competition in the various interclass
events. Perhaps the most notable of these were the boxing meets and the basketball
tournament. The inter-collegiate rules regarding cheering tand booingt during the
progress of a round are waived for the interclass meets, resulting in a din resembling
that of a boiler factory before the depression. The bouts this year were exceptionally well
fought and closely contested. The class of 1935 won the championship, with a total of
four victories, and the class of 1936 and the class of 1937 tied with three wins each.
The basketball tournament was a duel between the third and fourth classes from
the beginning to the end. Both easily defeated the second class but the two contests
between the winning teams resulted in a victory and a defeat for each of them, necessitat-
ing an extra play-on game to decide the winner. The fourth class hnally won the title
after a hard and weIl-played game.
Handball honors were divided between the second and fourth classes, the former
winning the doubles title and the fourth class taking the singles honors. As was expected,
the third class took the high score in the rifle matches without much difficulty, and to the
surprise of all, won the swimming meet by a wide margin.
With three contests yet to be played, the fourth class is in the lead with the other
classes close behind.

HE "Running Light" is an interesting, potent handbook published by the Cadet
TCorps. Originally, its purpose was to inform the new incoming class about the life
and their actions at the Academy. Its scope has been extended in the last few years, and
the information carried in its pages is important to the entire Corps.
A second classman holds the position of Editor, and is assisted by a staff of third
and fourth classmeni The staff, under the guidance of the faculty advisor, gather and
prepare all the material used. "Running Light" contains many articles intended to
familiarize the fourth class with the customs of the Academy and the Service. Sports,
social life, ships of the Service, and the history of the Coast Guard and the Academy
are carefully described.
The most important section of the "Swab Bible," as the "Light" is called, is the
rules and regulations governing the conduct of the new Cadets. These regulations must
be learned and carried out to the letter, as they are the basis of the training given by the
uRunning Light," well read, and its instructions heeded, will carry the llSwab"
through many dangers and make his rock-strewn course much easier. If the little blue
book places some oil on the angry waters, it will have accomplished its purpose.

HE Coast Guard Academy has no fraternities, secret societies, or social organizations
ehand-shaking and back-slapping are strictly taboo. It is enough to owe one,s
allegiance to Country, Service, and Corps; there is no need for further alliance.
The Monogram Club is distinctly different from any sort of social combination. It is
void of politics and has no ulterior purpose other than the propagation of good, Clean
sportsmanship. Every man who has won a letter in any Sport at the Academy is a mem-
ber. The high percentage of the Corps which does hold membership speaks well for the
athletic program of the school, for membership is the final recognition of the marfs
worth on field or floor. Class rates are dropped during the meetings and each man is
equal, in the fact that he has earned a block C G.
The club's meetings are rather infrequent, since they do not conform to any schedule
but are held only to carry out some definite purpose or to decide some specific question.
Every year, during "Grad Week", the Monogram Club holds a banquet for its members.
Here, athletics are discussed and plans are laid for the next academic year.
The club has enjoyed an unusually successful year and has established itself as a
traditional organization. At present, each and every "Swab" entering the Academy has
two ambitions: first, to be graduated from the Academy as an officer in the Coast Guard,
and second, to wear the CG of the Monogram Club.

HE Cadet cruise is no mere pleasure jaunt, contrary to the opinion of some of our
friends outside the main gate. The Cadets dorft sit around very often in deck chairs,
smoking cigars and writing home ttI wish you were here." These three summer months
are filled with vigorous tasks and hard work-star sights, boat drills, night watches, holy-
stoning and all the other general gripes. But there is compensation aplenty in swaggering
down the streets of a foreign port; in seeing the world and its strange customs and habits.
Last spring, just about the time Joe College and Fraternity Freddie were going
home to help papa. run his business, we carried out sea bags aboard the two gleaming
white cutters, let go the lines, and shoved OE. The next day we tied up at Quantico,
Virginia, where we spent a sultry two weeks on the Marine rifle range. For fourteen
days, we lay around in the dust with a merciless sun scorching our backs and with uold
lady Springfield" licking us in the face. By the end of the period every cadet had quali-
fied as a ttMarksman" with the rifle, while many had attained the distinction of uSharp-

shooter" and "Expert." We also peppered the targets tand buttst with the 01d forty-fives
and machine guns. We attended a delightful dance at the OfflCCfS, Club and had a gay
affair aboard ship while some of the luckier boys had a weekend in XWashington, so even
Quantico had its good points; Then we slipped down to Norfolk for two days. To the
rebels, Norfolk was the "City of the Sunny South"; the Yanks described it as a iihick
town," while to the boys who had been there before, it was i'just another port." How-
ever, everyone enjoyed Virginia Beach, and we know of a couple of boys who still write
letters to Virginian belles. Yes, the girls down there work pretty fasteeven faster than
in New London.
Then we bade Uncle Sam a fond farewell and steamed out of the Virginian Capes.
Just a couple of days out we were hit by a northeaster which made the two ships cut
some very, very eccentric capers. It wasn't long before a large number of Cadets were
trying to see their reflected images in the wavesebut this antic was not one of vanity, but
of dire necessity. But the inquisition didn't last very long, and as soon as Pop Neptune
called in his white-capped imps, some of the boys almost looked like they were still alive.
Those that were fortunate enough to survive i'turned to, and heaved around smartly" with
lVlmfa You P-mb Cadet? Pi'epamlimzx for Trip Arron
the thousand and one little details the uBosun," and only a "Bosun," can think of doing
aboard ship. After fourteen crosses had been made on the ship's calendar, one of the
Cadets shouted a lusty "Land-ho," and the skipper ran up and presented him with a
carton of cigarettes. Whoopee! Yeah, teal honest to goodness land, and ground and trees.
We thought we'had arrived at Lisbon, Portugal, but the natives called it "Lisboa'L-
and a native really should know. Regardless of whether you used a vowel or a consonant
the city was a dirty, unkempt seaport. Historians trace its origin back to the Phoenicians,
but we cant convict the accused without a hearing. We visited all the castles, cathedrals,
and museums and found them quite interestinge'twas a good thing we didnt realize
how many other times we would see practically the same things. We motored up to
nearby Cintra. This trip through the countryside was probably the most enjoyable event
of our brief visit-but some of the boys liked best the visit to the cafeterias along the
Avenida d4 Libertade-but ildose guys aint got no culcher."
Our next stop on the other side was dear old London. We use the word lldear" in
describing the great British metropolis because as soon as the bally hlold hlEnglishmen
saw us they multipliecl the price of everything by 3.1416 and then added their age. We
felt like true cosmopolitans gambolling around Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and
the Pall Mall. We visited the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham
Palace. These historic buildings which we had read about all our lives and which we

had built in our imaginations became actual realities of brick and stone. On the Fourth
of July, a number of the fortunate attended a reception at the United States Embassy.
The Cadets were somewhat surprised when refreshments were served to see dignified
John Bulls in "toppers" and monocles slip out of their blase roles and push and shove
and fight for a mere handful of cookies. The Lord Mayor of London kindly received a
party of ofticers and Cadets and welcomed them very hospitably. Probably the most im-
pressive thing to many of us in the City of London was the tomb of the liUnknown Sol-
dier." It was a simple slab of black marble laid in the floor at the entrance to Westminster
Abbey. Here in the midst of this huge, busy city peoPIe of all classes and types stop be-
fore this simple monument to valor and sacrifice, and we joined them with bated heads
in whispering a few words of prayer for the gallant 'lTommies." We took an alleday
trip out to Windsor Castle, stopping on the way at Eton, and at the tiny church at Stoke
Poges where Gray was inspired to write his famous "Elegy." We liked London and our
English cousins, in all their egotistical hauteur, but gosh, we wish they would learn to
keep beer on ice!
Copenhagen was without a doubt, for most of the Cadets, the most pleasant port on
the itinerary. We tied up alongside a quiet, inviting park, Which was a real contrast to
the filthy wharves of other cities. ThroughOut our visit to the city we were impressed by
its cleanliness. We visited the famous Fredricksborg castle and the Danish castle where
Yon Gollal Get U11
Hamlet is supposed to have lived, loved and gone
mad. We returned to the ships from Elsinore via
the Tubourg and the Carlsburg breweries, two very
tine institutions for the tired, bored Cadets.
That night, we paid a call to "Tivoli," one of
the most elaborate amusement parks of the world.
Every night, after supper, Mr. and Mrs. Copen-
hagen mount their bicycles and pedal out to
iiTivoli." Here, over their Steins of beer or glasses
of schnapps, they forget the dull cares of the day
while watching the rest of the city at play.
In our contacts with the Danish People we
noticed that they held us in high regard and they
entertained us lavishly. Without a doubt, their
respect for Americans is in part due to the tactful
diplomacy 0f the great lady minister, Mrs. Bryan
Owen. By her pleasing personality, this lovely
lady has brought the two nations closer than all
the peace conferences ever concerned.
Here at the Danish capital, :1 squadron of
British destroyers was tied up just ahead of us. "Old Glory" in Foreign 117mm
An international boat race was arranged. One
of the biggest thrills of the entire cruise was the sight of our boats sweeping across the
line in front of the ViLimeys."
From Copenhagen we went to Hamburg by way of the Kiel Canal. As we traveled
through the narrow locks German men, women, and children slipped us the old Hitler
salute, and greeted us with HWie gehts." After meandering about Hamburg for several
days twe visited the Hagenbeck Animal Park, as well as the cafes and cabaretsy, we went
by train to Berlin. We saw all the important buildings under the capable direction of an
old German nobleman, 'now working as a guide. He took us to dinner, after which we
visited the lofty radio tower and had a View of the gay European Capitol from the heights.
The rest of the evening was spent in iimaking the rounds" and in getting a glimpse of
the much-publicized Berlin night life. We found that it had not been over-rated. We

frolicked through a galaxy of sumptuous night
clubs. Probably the most ornate was the world-
famous iiVaterIand," several stories high, and covr
ering, as we judged, a pretty fair-sized city block.
Here, there were fourteen separate rooms, each
devoted to a different nation, and each having
an orchestra in native costume. There were Swiss
yodelers, Roumanian danseuses, and even Parisian
Apaches, but we got the shock of our lives in
the room that was supposed to represent the good
old U. S. A. What a travesty! Half a dozen

rendition of "My Blue Heaven." If that's the

had a war with them.

informers have been too conservative. We sailed up to Havre and went to Paris by train.
i Our arrival in the French capital was the climax of the whole cruise, for we now pos-
sessed the anticipated opportunity of testing Mr. Buron's "Francais" on the "garcons."
Gosh, they were a dumb lot, or else we forgot a few circumflexes. Paris is like a vivacious
maiden, at her first ball. Her face shines with abandoned ecstasy, she enjoys life, and
she wants yOu to know that she is having a good time. Indeed there is nothing else on
her frivolous mind. The city has a cafe or a wine shop on nearly every corner, there are
gorgeous displays of flowers everywhere, and the people have a different manner. Even
the clerk walking to work steps along sprightly with his hat at an angle and with a

I told her I loved her,

And a sorrowful goodbye. You're damned right well.

I would ever be true. All salty and gay--

THE OLD, OLD STORY

of Saturday's tree, and we always went ashore together in foreign ports. Bill was a ured
mike." That was the only difference in our routine lives; I liked to slip up to the Col-
lege for an occasional date, and I thought I was a pretty smooth lad with the femmes.
But that's all over now.
Bill and I hit it OPE swell as roommates. Wle always gave each other a hand in
cleaning up the old "love nest"; we worked our experiments together. Neither of us
will ever win a pair of binoculars for Ilcut-throating," but with the help of the text and
the answers we could solve any thermo problem. We used each other's tooth paste and
shaving cream and wore each other's clothes. Last Christmas Bill spent his leave at my
home, and boy, we had a swell time!
Just a month ago I met Helen. A swab was dragging her from the College to an
informal. I went for her like nobody's business. It turned out pretty tough for the
swab. I broke on him continuously, and before "Dinty" Rollins and his boys had played
that last sweet strain I had everything fixed for Sunday. Bill didn't attend the dance, but
I kept him awake a couple of hours telling him about that beautiful golden hair and
those laughing blue eyes. The kids potent line went to my head and made me feel sort
of dizzy-as I had heard a strong wine would affect me, if I imbibedebut of course I
never do. Bill would only let out an occasional snort of disgust, and at last I heard only
his heavy breathing. He had dropped off to sleep, the son of a gun!

During the next couple of weeks I saw a great deal of Helen. I took her to the

home 11m. Besides, I even went up to see her on Wednesday afternoons. I had it bad.
To be even near her made me tingle all over. One week I took her sailing. I convinced
Bill that it was his duty to his pal to go along and handle the tiller 21nd the sheets while
I inhispered sweet nothings." So Bill met Helen, and later even he condescended to
remark, "Well, she's not so bad. Built pretty well."
The next day Helen called up and broke a date. She said she had "an awful head-
ache." Then next Friday she canceled our scheduled Saturday's engagement, saying that
she had to visit her home. Well, I was pretty well burned up. I knew something was
up. At first I thought of that big, debonait "palooka" from Dartmouth that I had once
seen with her. But I just couldn,t think of Helen giving me the big "run around." Why,
men, she was different! A girl should go home to see her Mother and Dad often. You
see, I really had it bad.
Bill borrowed a couple of bucks from me Saturday, and when I came back from
playing tennis he had gone ashore. I had Supper at the mess-hall and then went down-
town to a show. The picture was lousy, so I came out early. I decided I'd walk back to
the Academy and hit the hay. What a swell night! A big, warm, yellow moon and the
sweet spring air gave me that sentimental feeling that we all have but which none of us
Will describe. We don't like being laughed at when we're romantic. I thought of
Helen. Gosh, she was lovely and sweet. She couldn't be anything but true. She was
I ducked into a restaurant for a sandwich and milk shake to quench this inane feel-
ing of loneliness. Oh, I was hungry, tOOeI always am! As I sucked at the straw, I hap-
pened to glance across at the next table. A wisp of blonde hair showed beneath a darn
cute hat. Dammit, it was Helen! I jumped up and saw, right across from her, holding
her hand and looking like a sick cow into her laughing blue eyeseemy pal, Bill.

WHAT SHE SAID
It seems ages since I was in heaven, being with you last weekend. Honestly, I was
never so thrilled in my life. That beautiful dance haunts me with memories of beautiful
girls and handsome ol'hcers. You especially looked so strong and handsome in your stun-
ning uniform with all of those ducky brass buttons.
It Was so thoughtful of you to show me through that delightful city of New London.
I never dreamed the quaint old town was so full of nice places. Your academy is perfect.
The pretty new buildings are just too gorgeous for words. Your charming friends with
stripes on their arms were simply perfect. I loved them all, but of course you know the
one I loved best.
I've never danced with such perfectly splendid dancers in all my life. None of the
others could compare with you. Really, clearest, your dancing is divine. You seem to put
everything into it. I was so sorry I couldnt be with you again before I left. I suppose
those nasty old officers wouldn't let you out.
I know that perfect day will never be equalled.
With all of my love,
WHAT SHE MEANT
You Log-headed Lumberjack:
Bored is no description of the way I felt last weekend. Why you should pick on me
to be the sufferer is more than I can understand. I've never done anything to you. That
one-horse dump, New London, takes the cake for being the crumbiest moth-eaten burg
this side of Scappose.
I thought I was going into a taxi drivers' reunion or a conductorsl convention when
I entered that dance hall. The only kind of dancing you and your friends could do is
interpretive dancingFinterpreting a drunken elephant. That music was swell-but how
did you manage to steal it from the natives of Africa? I felt like doing a war dance.
What I cant understand is why you step on my feet when you have two of your own to
Every time I think of that day with you I grit my teeth. Even at that an odd feeling
steals to the pit of my tummy. The happiest moment I had that day was leaving you at
that lousy hotel you took me to.
Thank heaven my sensibilities weren't grated Sunday by being with you. Believe
me, I left as soon as possible.

and were stopped and exchanged a few
words with the cadets. The cadets wanted
to make .1 date with the girls but refuse be-
cause they tin: brought up by strick parents,
and not allowed to go out. The cadets asked
the girls how they would know them again
and they said that they would be dressed
alike. There is one and one half years dif-
ference between their ages and they look
like twins. They told me about it and said
that they were sory they didn't tell their
names. Now I only asked of you is this if
it isn't to much trouble to repeat or read this
over to your cadet mates and see if any three
happen to remember they meeting with the
girls and it they are willing to meet them
again. If so be at the corner of Broad and

its too much trouble to you friends we are

Throughout the past four decades which have witnessed the
greatest development of marine steam-propulsion systems,
The Babcock $ Wilcox Company has been the first to con-
ceive improvements in marine boiler design, to develop
them thoroughly, and to make them available to the Marine
Industry in the form of more efficient equipment for eco-
The First marine boiter built by this organization was con-
structed in 1875. From this time through the period of the
World War, when the Company furnished over 1400 boilers
for vessels of the Navy and for the Emergency Fleet, The
Bobcock 8t Wilcox Company has been constantly progressive
in policies, and has grown in organization and in facilities
until it is, admittedly, the largest, the foremost of its kind.
In this period, it has built more marine boilers than the
combined totals of oil other manufacturers. The Company's
AWARDED FOR service to the Marine Industry, however, is not Enished . . .
as further progress is made in the generation of steam for
CONSTANT SERVICE marine propulsion, The Bubcock 8t Wilcox Company will
TO THE MARINE INDUSTRY further demonstrate its leadership.

THIS BEARING OF SOFT RUBBER CONTRIBUTES TO THE
ENGINEERING PROGRESS OF THE COAST GUARD
Consistent With its high standard of engineering practice, the U. S. Coast Guard was
among the first to test the merits of Cutless Bearings and later to adopt them on prac-
tically all their new construction, first on small picket boats, then on the larger patrol
boats, and flnally on the largest seagoing cutters 0f the CHELAN class.
Cutless Bearings reduce vibration, last longer, prevent shaft wear, and are silent in

The United States Coast Guard has added
six 38' Picket Boats powered with HalI-Scott
INVADERS to its Atlantic Seaboard fieet.
These boats, built by the Corsair Boat
Company of Trenton, Michigan, are dupli-
cates 0f the fifteen built in 1931 by the Gibbs
Gas EngineCompuuy of Jacksonville, Florida.
They maintain a speed of 26 m.p.h. and are
excellent sea bouts, having proved the finest
equipment in the Coast. Guard service.
That the United Stales Coast Guard has
again used HaIl-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 HaII-Scott tradition.
If you are seeking a sturdy, dependable,
economical engine for express commuter and
fast cruiser service, examine the many points
of superiority of the HaIl-Scott INVADER.

PROBLEMS OF AN EDITOR
P RODUCING a year book is by no means the work of a day,
nor simply the assembling of type and plates . . . it is that
of hard work, intelligent cooPeration and service.
Your editor gathers material and facts for the text . . .
that is quite a problem. And, wisely, he seeks the service of
a publisher to help him and to give him intelligent cooperation.
Often, this service goes beyond the mechanics of printing. It
reaches the high-spots of editing and management.
As publishers of many year books, we give this individual
attention and positive service. There is no detail, however
insignificant, that escapes our attention. That is Why so many
of the finer year books throughout the East are produced by
