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." xi? .7' Ax x H MAD1soN HHIINISTRATION F0 R 1934 WWWWWW FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT Prelideizt 0f the Uniled Stale; HENRY MORGENTHAU, JR.

MASSACHUSETTS 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. 1 g 1 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 Guard. 11w yr .

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- phone man." FOR1934MWVVVW 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?

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. Even if you are going down for the third time, and have only a few precious seconds to live, he will wave his contracts and say, "How about an ad?"

All controversies about the various divisions of the Worlds "national pastime" are brought to him for set- tlement. It is unusual if he hasn't the answer immediately; but if the case is far fetched or unheard of, out come the magazines and dope sheets from behind his books and in a few minutes the answer is found. FOR 1934mm WW Congenial, happy-go-lucky, carefree, and with little worry about studies, he goes his way leaving an air of happiness behind him when he departs. Buffalo proudly claims Jimmy as her native son, and woe be to the man who attempts to sully that name. Mention the fair town, only hint it, and he will tell about the llPodunk" where the sun rises and sets, the spot at the end of the Rainbow. Time is unimportant to him, and his ability to carry out details in short order is one of his greatest assets. Attending formations is his , greatest llbugaboo," but he manages always to slide in under the wire. Mischievous eyes and ready vocabulary of unpronounceable ad- jectives make his recitations pleasant to hear. Ability to participate in athletics successfully stamps him as an all-round man. He will be missed by all of us when we come to the temporary parting of ways, but the future will be enlightened with the thought that we will serve with him again. "Bon Voyage" and uGood Luck."

TIDE RIPS FOR 1934 W As the answer to a "maiden's prayer" he is unequaled, and his unique manners with the opposite sex keep his waiting list of fair dam- sels long indeed. Three cruises have gained for him a master's degree in the age old art, and continual episodes keep him in perfect trim. At one time he was considered the one and only modern Casa- nova, and he was never averse to glorifying the American girl. He even went so far as to elevate the beauty of the European and South American belles. Latest bulletins, however,ishow that he is decidedly on the down grade. Those in the know claim that this is due to the O. A. 0. back home. Details, assignments and obligations hold no worries for uSpeightie," as he is too engrossed in waiting for the mailman to bring the missive from the O. A. O. telling him that the home fires are patiently burning for him to return. Taking over the assignment as manager of football7 in a very short time he had all the details well in hand and helped to carry the team through a successful season. For his reward, he was presented with a dip in the pool, clothes and all, thus furnishing some entertain- ment for many interested spectators. Needless to say, he pulled several along with him as companions in his predicament. He will always carry on with a keen sense of duty and a shrewd eye toward advancement; his further achievements will speak for themselves.

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 duties. uNow when I was a swab" has become so over used by many of our seniors that we 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 TIDE RIPS 130111934 "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- tendent. 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 WWW " 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. September leave again! H0 ,hum! 69 WOOD 1V2 Fire 5. R. B P. 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 gave us plenty of time on week-ends in which to enjoy our new surroundings. That fellow Emerson certainy knew his Coast Guard when he expounded ilCompensation." Our class suffered two startling casualties which reduced it to a meager but striving five. After mid-years, iiPeewee" Lewis, that easy-going Virginia gentleman, left us, and late in the spring amiable, versatile, laughing HBob" Armstrong resigned. Graduation in 1933 had its sorrowful aspect as we bade uau revoir" to our former classmates in the first class, but we did it with a resolve that one year later we would join them in the wardroom. The last Cruise to northern Europe rounded out our training. Besides, who can for- get the fun we had in C0penhagen, Paree, and Berlin-the last carefree caprices of cadets in foreign cities? We will always look back at those few precious hours spent at the home of the hospitable Gunnar Larsenis and the party that had to end at midnightth. From now on our gamboling will be just a bit dampened by the responsibility of a commissioned officer. We have drifted through this last Academic year, and now Just a we are nearing our destined port. few more days and we shall have our com- missions, but we will never completely for- get our cadet days. If, in years to come, this boek helps us to recall these happy days, it Will indeed have served its purpose. First Clammanlr Dream TIDE RIPS i FOR1,934W HAVE YOU A VOCABULARY?

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 Stream, quiet siestas on deck Oi and a warm wind were all quite different from the days going across two months earlier. Those of the engine-room were the first to know that the long twelve days at sea were nearly over, when the sonic depth-hnder indicated a landfall was soon to be made.

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 knowingly. 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 took my wonderful course he couldnlt even raise his voice. Now he can raise potatoes, onions, carrots and all sorts of things. The results of my course will amaze you.

Passage from one port to another separated by ex- pansive ice fields make it necessary to have an ice-crushing bow. The conditions are extremely dangerous, and the resourcefulness, energy, and courage of the officers and crew are severely tested many times during their stay in the Bering Sea. Their operations touch the lives of many people; to some the arrival of the white-hulled ship means renewed food, fuel, and medical stores, clothing and house- hold wares, and letters containing long-awaited news from America. To others, relief and rescue from situations that to them seem intolerable. Minister, doctor, judge and jury are only a few of the many tasks that confront the members of the expedition. Tales of pathos, humor, and death are investigated, their clues often placing the Coast Guardsmen in desperate circumstances. Disease, epidemics, and scourge are constantly combatted, the rescuers exposing themselves for weeks at a time. Humanitarian duties do not occupy all the time in the Arctic, as important and valuable work is done in surveying harbors, rivers, and channels, the information being .used to correct charts and make navigation safer for the steamers trading along the coast. Ships are boarded, searched, and inspected to determine whether the rules and regula- tions are being obeyed. Seal herds and fish are protected from poachers and those Who operate outside the law.

On arriving at Hongkong the vessel was assigned t patch ship. 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 and flank. This assignment placed the ship under the direct fire of the Spanish batteries and gave all hands a birdls-eye view of the engagement. After the battle, the ship was sent to Hongkong, carrying the flrst authentic news of the victory. Later the MCCULLOCH captured two Spanish ships, prizes of war, Withe out the firing of a single shot. After several months of interesting, unique, and often monotonous assignments, the cutter was detached and ordered to proceed to her station at San Francisco. Admiral Dewey's report to the Secretary of the Navy carries the following state- ment: ll. . . and now beg to state that all the duties assigned to the MCCULLOCH were performed with the greatest of zeal, efficiency, and judgment." The MCCULLOCH was used for many years on the Bering Sea Patrol and was espe- cially known because of her use as a floating court to the Alaskan towns. When the World War was declared, she was assigned to duty in the Pacific; on this duty she was sunk in a collision With the steamer GOVERNOR on June 13, 1917, one man being killed. 1 wow wow; McCULLOCH HOH x XV , KW?

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. 102 -..

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. 104 -.:,...:,.:7 3: e. ng M h- ,ng-g-F'Ivm. :1'- e' e tE-V, : etaNfJe-eg.

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. 106 Fvyaglmf, -71". 5 I f. ,M mesa; 5.. -n- ,r-Iar ,7- 75 -7 ,, W, ,1 55m, K a 54623. :55; W 5-7; "ir:5 , 5555M A AWE A 54.x.r-v- ; - ';i AKA r 3 A v A-A : L01 - 7 '"I M , .4 ; WWW I, Min WA K, W I IV; 4 - 4. ! j vx x g f i gyz. .57F a- 8 0h .

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 rough seas. 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. 109 , ZI. e '52."... M :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 wings. 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. 110 37A wow waAg RESCUE AT SEA H: J.

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.

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. QUA' r TIDE RIPS FOR1934 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. 117 m FOOT PATROL BOAT 125 16S-FOOT PATROL BOAT 118 wow.

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. TIDE RIPS .. wdar'n-ee-a-wcnlw- A A we 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 125 W'VM WWW W 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 126 TIDE RIPS see in wet: , "4w? Yea; FOR 1934WW ' 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. 127 WW WITH APOLOGIES TO JOYCE KILMER I think there's nothing quite so great, Or lovely as a boatswain's mate.

This is asked by the many persons WhO visit the Academy and find the Cadet Corps engaged in the intricate evolutions 0f the school of the soldier. The answer is that such 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 are undertaken. TIDE RIPS FOR 1934WW 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- less labor. 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. 139 ear: '7 re, "7,777e ., , glal':fw.f-e, A , vise 5K 7.745;, EEEEEEEE3333333322: TIIDE IKIPS SEA FEVER I must go down to the seas again; to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; .

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, but cleanly. 145 ttyh-hA-$N- , 3 :..23I :z ;LQ.W 32 Ah I 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. FOR 1934 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 ended. 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. In the first half, the Cadets tore into a heavier Rhode Island team and snatched two brilliant touchdowns from the pre-game favorites. In the third quarter the Blue and 147 f s :: y'jse even '72-??? 7 t e ,,ff" "1:! 1,,L-gexr , A Completed Pan 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 the ball. 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 necessary yardage. 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. Blocking a szt Lafferty, Lathrop, and Blouin sprinted through the State line for spasmodic gains, but the entire Cadet team failed to click when a final thrust would have carried the ball over. We salute the stubborn defense and the fighting spirit of the whole Connecticut State team and the aggressiveness of their diminutive quarterback, Kelly. Score: Acad- emy 0, Connecticut State 0. 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 their acclaim. 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. BASKETBALL 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. t i E t M 11.. A ,1 FOR 1934NWVWVM 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.

BOXING NEW HAMPSHIRE 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. ARMY 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. FOR I934W 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 the fight. 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. 153 W W 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. HARVARD 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 victory. 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. YALE 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. TIDE RIPS FOR 1934WMMWW 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 decision. 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, Yale 3V2. SPRINGFIELD 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 W W W 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. H. K. McLERNON Head C0451: TIDE RIPS CROSS-COUNTRY 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- ting the team in shape.

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 Connecticut State presented a powerful group of natators for the final meet of 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 bettered the time which he had previously set against Wesleyan. relay team accounted for another set of the records in the 220- and the 440-yard free style. Henderson placed second in both of these events. With this start in swimming, it 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. MacIntosh and Baxter were the outstanding representatives in the breast Stroke and the back stroke respectively. Baxter also participated in the crawl events. Buxton, John- sen, Pritchard, Chester, Harchar, and Burdett did well the past year, and are expected Connecticut Statels RIFLE TEAM HE rifle team, completing its second year of inter-collegiate competition and first i year as a minor Sport at the Academy, has shown a decided improvement over the past two years, and next season will be a formidable foe to all those it is scheduled to meet. A modern rifle gallery containing the newest of equipment has been a great help to the members of the team. Daily practice has enabled the men to bring their scores up considerably. 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 former member of the Coast Guard Rifle Team, ought to make the squad a constant winner during the coming season. TIDE INTERCLASS SPORTS athletics. It is in these events that Cadets have 21 thunce to air their grievances, Haunt 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 contests. 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.

Age CHISWELL ELLIS STEELE WHLCOX ARNOLD GUILL RUNNING LIGHT 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 upper classes. 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. 163 lirieiyfgidtrfgg See: :t max AMmmmmm-uK Vie .e 4bse 44A A H4 SOCIAL COMMITTEE Kerr, Niclaolm, Cirill, Spel'gljl , CADET ORCHESTRA Top Row Y0ng, Mamier, fenkar Middle R0w B0c1Jenek, Eimubel'g, Mirzzy, Ollinger 1 First Row LamZm l, Elm, Rallim, IWoodkrworllv, Dari; " 164 V .W. 4H , aiw ; 7 w - 1 -:.:4; , w, y I m. .7; ' 165 4f:e w- z-r-Zx fete fwwe Les'? ,, , st 'ef- s 4 s Jittxs MONOGRAM CLUB 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. :4, v .11, l 4 I . y a . . l1: ,F C Pay Clerk THOMAS ABRAHAMSON Chief Cmpemm HYMAN G.

SUMNER RICHARD W'ILTENBERG Baallwam x-.; xi: n HCORWIN 5k lle1 . 1 THE CRUISE The Skipper Take; Command RAMBLES OF 34 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- "Adiezz" New London 170 FOR 1934 Preparing for Baal Drill 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 Srenei 072 OM lVeek-Emi Sunday at Sea Have you Mae Spoom? London Tower 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 .z 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 174 r. ViPW yaw..." a 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 Quantico Indians garbed in sombreros and woolly chaps of the wild, wild West were plunking guitars and tooting Vtsaxes" in a rather feeble rendition of "My Blue Heaven." If that's the German conception of us, there's no wonder we had a war with them. Next came gay PareewFolies Bergere, EiHeI Tower, Versailles, and Notre Dame. We found Uniform for "Ezllmzilel" that all the stories we have heard about Paris do I not give a true picture of the city; most of our 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 nonchalant air which seems to say, hYes, to work now out with Fih." The buildings are ornate with their towering spires, and their graceful but this evening, I'm stepping Excitation; A1 Eatmz College 9m IF'JIMJ Ilw 15er flying buttresses, and they are all worked out with a wealth of minute tletuil. Yes, we were in PariSIblithe, Sportive, capricious Paris. We looked the city over, and decided that to have a real good time in this city one must have "beaucoup de francs"; so we bought a bottle of "Christmas Night" for the girl friend, and did quite a lot of window shop- ping. Then we sat out on the Moulin Rouge and watched the artists, bakers, and bankers saun- ter by. We visited the palace at Versailles and also Marie Anv toinette's penthousw-she could make some of those modem "gold-diggers" look like nove ices. The Petit Trinnon will re- main a lasting memory. Back at Havre, we gave the two "hatezlux" a last coat of white and slid away from the dock.

At Hampton Roads, we Spent a week in preparation for the short-range battle practice. The sun was scorching and the drills were monotonous, but the most rigorous routine could not dull the anticipation of the ap- proaching leave. In the day of the test, we sat back until Baker was hoisted, then we started let- ting hem go. When the smoke had cleared away, our two guns had scored fifteen hits out of a possiblesixteen in minimum time. The last leg of the cruise carried us to Gardner's Bay.

He and I were pals. We pushed the I deck down together as two ratey swabs. Ever since, we have perched on the same limb 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! 195 WW TIDE RIPS During the next couple of weeks I saw a great deal of Helen. I took her to the Rumimz Rooxter once and on the Saturday after the flrst I managed 21 dinner at the Liglgz. 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 different. 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. Mt. Trebes is going to let me move up to Redls room.

FCTR 1934 RETRIBUTION CREECHING brakes, sliding wheels S and a sickening impact against the walls of the underpass below the railway suddenly broke the stillness of the night in the little village of Allegheny. Hiram Judson was awakened by the crash and tinkle of falling glass. "More fools driving like mad to their deatheprobably drunk, too," he muttered, half asleep. Again he was aroused, this time by a loud banging on the door. uWho's there and what do you want," he yelled out of the window. An excited young man stepped back from the door. "Open the door quickly please; I want to 'phone Covington for an ambulance. A man has been badly hurt in a wreck and-" llWell, don't stand there telling me about it! Go over to the C. 8: O. telegraph ofhce and don't disturb me any more!" With this he returned to his bed, congrat- ulating himself on how well his own son had been trained. Thanks to him, they would never be running around at this hour of the night. Meanwhile the young man dashed into the telegraph office and blurted out his mes- sage. The operator jumped to his feet to put in the call. Just then a light changed ehe must throw a switch to allow a coal train to pass in the clear. To the young man wildly pacing the floor each second seemed an hour and the clicking sounded like dripping blood. At last the call went through. Again the silence was shattered. The am- bulance sped by siren blowing. Hiram 199 listened, but to him it meant only another interruption to his sleep. . . . Ting-a-ling-a-ling. The telephone bell sounded close to Hiram's ear. This time he threw the cover back and sat upright in bed, thoroughly exasperated. "Let it ring! I'll not answer it!" Again and again it rang. Hiram could not resist longer. Hello !" he thundered. "Long Distance calling Mr. Hiram Jud- son," came faintly over the wire. iiAll right! Here I an1!', iiThis is the head nurse at Covington Hospital speaking.

W TIDE RIPS W WHAT SHE SAID Darling: 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, JANE. 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 walk on. 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.

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- nomical propulsion. 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.

Coast Guard Headquarters decided to re power the I25'ft. patrol boats of the Cuyahoga class, built in 1926 and 1927, to give them more speed. The idea was to change from the old power plant, two 150 HP. ena gines, to two Winton Diesels of 300 H. P. each. Then the question rose: How step up power IOOCZ; without installing larger shafts to take the added load and increased stresses? Saves Installation Costs Also, to install larger shafts would mean new tand costlyl strut, stern and line shaft bearings. 50 the engineering staff decided to Underbody view of the U.S.C.G.

Longexperience with Monel Metal propeller shafts in many different boats suggested that they salvage the original 3V2" dia' meter bronze shafts and install high tensile M07121 Metal shafting of the same size. They knew that they would obtain enough added strength in those 3V2 inches of cold rdrawn Monel Metal to handle 150 added horsepower from each motor. No drastic alterations. No extenr sive tearing out of old work. Not a single bearing size changed. Just 1007;; more power from the new motors has now been handled, for more than two years without faltering, by Monel Metal shafts the same size as those they displaced. So successful was the Cuyahogals performance that the US. Coast Guard is now rezpowering six additional boats 223 The U. 5. Coast Guard 125-foot patrol boar "Cuyahoga". now used by the U. S.

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.

PROBLEMS OF AN EDITOR V 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 this organization. ROBERT W.
