A oV P J x -t ' e II i)i (. first RiN ( I I WRMamichmdtfM Niwiuikvpurt The MASSACHUSETTS was the first Revenue Cutter built. She was laid down in Newburyport, Massachusetts in 1790, and was built at a cost of slightly over two thousand dollars, as a result of Alexander Hamilton ' s pleas for the creation of a Revenue Cutter Service. She was fifty feet long at the keel, and displaced seventy tons. The Revenue Cutter PICKERING was one of the best fighting ships of her time, ton for ton. In the difficulties with French privateers from 1798 to 1801, she was assigned to the West Indies Squadron of the Navy. From September, 1799 to January, 1800 she captured ten prizes with her armament of fourteen four-pounders and crew of ninety men. gSHp I )i 1 I i)i (. nil I ' uole IN THF. War of 1S12 On the nth of October, 1814, the U. S. R. C. EAGLE (four four-pounders and two twos) was attacked by the I3ritish eighteen-gun brig DISPATCH and two smaller vessels. The Cutter was run aground on Long Island and the guns dragged ashore. When ammunition ran low the log book was used as wadding and British cannon balls were fired back. Suppressing Gulf Piratks During the period from 1800 to 1815, the Gulf Coast was the happy hunting grounds for scores of pirates, among them the notorious Jean Lafitte. The Cutters LOUIS- IANA and ALABAMA became famous for their fights against the freebooters, both on the sea and at their shore bases, many of which they burned. In 1836 a party of United States troops sent to subdue the warlike Seminole Indians was ambushed and massacred, beginning the Seminole War. The Revenue Cutters were sent to Florida to cooperate with the Army and Navy in putting an en d to the fighting. The Cutters finally cleaned up — after two and a half years of chasing elusive savages through the swamps. » Harriet Lane FIRING First Shot in Civil War The Cutter HARRIET LANE, one of the fastest ships of her day, was built in 1857. In ApriL 1861 she was sent to Charleston, South Carolina, convoying a fleet of troop and provision ships to the relief of Fort Sumter. The night before arriving in the harbor she kept several vessels from entering, firing the first shots of the Civil War. M ' C.uUocli i 1 wii b The McCULLOCH was on her way to San Francisco by way of the Far East when the Spanish-American War began. On April 6, 1898 she was assigned to the Asiatic Squadron under Dewey and took part in the battle of Manila Bay. She was used as a dispatch and scouting ship, and brought the first authentic news of the battle to Hongkong, and thence to the rest of the world. J i mpa ON Convoy Dl ty During i hii fVorld fVar One of the six Cutters engaged in convoy duty overseas during the World War was the TAMPA, under the command of Commander Charles Satterlee. She set a splendid record in her work, protecting eighteen convoys without losing a ship. She was sunk with all hands in Bristol Channel, presumably by a German submarine, September 2.8, 191 8. h PAIROI. BOAl OVF.RllAL I ING Smuoirling VESSEL The passage of the National Prohibition Amendment in 1919 gave the Coast Guard a big )ob. The prevention of liquor smuggling, because of its unpopularity with many citizens, was an unpleasant but necessary task and was well carried out. The small Patrol Boats especially were valuable in making seizures of hovering and con- tact vessels. In July, 1936, the CAYUGA, which was in European waters on a Cadet Practice Cruise, was ordered by Coast Guard Headquarters to proceed to San Sebastian, Spain to pick up the American Ambassador and other Americans endangered by the revolu- tion in that country. After removing refugees to safety on French soil the Cutter became a floating Embassy of the United States.

Olson Academy 1918 Turbines, Materials Lieutenant Vernon Edwin Day Academy 1927 Engineering Laboratory, Draft- ing, Machine Shop, Descriptive Geometry Engineering O INCE every line officer now graduating from the Academy must be proficient in below- deck as well as above-deck duty, it is essential that he understand thoroughly the theory and operation of all naval machinery. To this end two Departments at the Academy, that of Mechanical and that of Electrical Engineering, have been instituted and work in close cooperation. Study in both departments is based upon fundamental mathematical and scientific subjects. Mechanical Engineering is composed of such subjects as thermodynamics, heat engines, boilers, turbines, internal combustion engines and practical laboratory work in steam engineering, while the Electrical Department is composed of courses in electricity and radio combined with suitable laboratory work. On the summer cruises further practical work is given by means of detailed studies of the entire mechanical and electrical systems of the ship. To facilitate this st udy, regu- lar cadet engineering watches are stood in boiler room, en- gine room and radio room, and notebooks covering the funda- mental principles and practical operation and maintenance of all machinery must be compiled. Practical work at the Academy begins with mechanical drawing and descriptive geometry, and Peter Vincent Colmar Academy 1929 Radio, Communicauons, Materials of Construction Lieutenant George Andrew Knudsen Academy 1930 Electricity, Electncity Laboratory Edv. Rii A Stanton Engineering Laboratory Assistant With basic machine-shop courses where the working of metals by means of lathes and other tools is actually performed. Elementary work in the small foundry is also taught, and actual casting is done by the Cadets. Next the Cadet tackles the complicated mazes of electrical circuits. He becomes familiar with the methods of installing and operating all types of electrical machinery. Then his attention is focused on propulsive machinery such as steam turbines, recipro ' eating engines, and internal combustion engines. He becomes thoroughly acquainted with the operating characteristics of all types of prime movers and their application to the pro- pulsion of Coast Guard ships; and with auxiliaries and boiler installations. As soon as he has obtained sufficient basic theoretical knowledge in his radio course he begins experimental work in the construction and operation of the most advanced designs of radio equipment used in the Serv- ice. With this groundwork the young officer is well capable of taking over his duties in maintaining the engineering and communications departments of Coast Guard vessels at the high degree of efficiency and relia- bility which is so necessary to the performance of the duties of the Service. $$$$$$$$$$ $$$ Commander James Pine Academy 1908 Scdtnanship Lieutenant Commander Harold Gardner Bradbury Academy 1920 Compass, Surveying, ?iavigauon Seamanship and Navigation ' " pHE ultimate success or failure of a line officer depends largely upon the proper appli- ■ - cation of his knowledge of seamanship and navigation. These two subjects are closely interrelated but the whole field is so broad that two departments at the Academy are necessary in order that proper attention may be given to each phase. The Department of Seamanship includes, in general, the theoretical and practical study of the construction, handling and uses of various types of Service vessels and equipment, including small boats. The general scope of the Navigation Department covers the theory of navigational instruments and their use in determining the position of a ship at any time and place. The elements of surveying are also included under this department. From the time that a Cadet enters the Academy he is kept in almost continual contact with some phase of seamanship or navigation. Rowing and han- dling small boats under sail are the first steps. An excellent fleet of pulling boats and small sloops is available for instruction and ex- perience in rowing and sailing, and each summer one class is given training aboard the spacious Academy schooner " Chase. " On the regular summer cruises the most recent types of cutters are used and the Cadet learns bv I Chief Boatswain Russell W. Thresher Ass stant iti Seamanshfi Assistant 171 Seamanshp experience the duties of each man from deck hand to otficer of the deck. He performs the seaman ' s duties of handling lines, cleaning and painting ship, lowering and hoisting boats. He stands regular wheel, lookout, messenger, quartermaster and signal watches. At the Acade my again the subject of Navigation is taken up, and the Cadet learns the duties and routine of a ship ' s navigator and studies the theory and adjustment of the gyro and magnetic compasses. On his next cruise the Cadet puts into practice his newly acquired knowledge of navi- gation and thus obtains extensive beneficial experience of the sort that he later will be required to rely on for the safety of his ship. In the last year at the Academy a general course covering many branches of seaman- ship is taken. Here the fundamentals of seamanship are reviewed and the latest technical information studied concerning such subjects as equipment, handlm;:; ot ■steamers and boats, rescue work, weather and navigation laws. Formulation and digestion of all knowledge previously ac- quired IS made possible by a final cruise where the Cadet develops the ability to com- mand by serving in such re- sponsible positions as coxswain of lifeboats, boat-officer of run- ning boats, coxswain in charge of watches, and officer-of-the- deck. $$$$$$$4$4ii4$$ Lieutenant John Luther Steinmetz Academy 1927 Algebra, Calculus, 7 [aiiigatic Professor Chester Edward Dimick Harvard University 1901 Mechanics, Calculus Henrv St. Clair Sharp Academy 1930 Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculm Mechanics, Differential Equation Mathematics ' I ' HE science of Mathematics had its origin in the practical needs of man for simple ways • - of measurement. Man became conscious of the mystery of numbers and very soon had everyone mystified. From Thales of Miletus to Einstein men have fretted and expounded. Now we fret and are confounded. Mathematics is essential to the officer. It is the basis of engineering, of ordnance and of navigation. It is the essence of logic. Upon beginning his stiff four-year course, the new Cadet is required to absorb trigonometry and college algebra. Later he turns to integral and differential calculus, to analytical geometry, to mechanics, and to differential equations. This completes two years. In the final half of his training as navigator and engineer he must constantly draw upon his store of mathematical knowledge. An Academy giaduate has passed through a thorough and rigid mathematical course. In these courses a correct bal- ance of speed and accuracy is required. Although the early work IS almost entirely theo- retical, problems involving prac- tical usages are chosen as far as possible. Neatness is emphasized, and the use of the " slipstick " is important. Proficiency in mathe- matics is an indispensable asset to every Academy graduate. J $ $ $ $ 4 Lieutenant Commander Russell Ernest Wood Academy 1924 Ordnance, Ballistics Lieutenant (j. g.) Donald Thomas Adams Academy 1932 Ordnance, Tacacs Gunner Dellworth Ballard Ordnance Laboratory Assist Ordnance and Ballistics TN THE peacetime duties of the Coast Guard little necessity is evident for a knowledge - of ordnance and ballistics, but as a part of the armed forces of the United States, co- operating with the Navy in time of war, the Service must keep abreast of late develop- ments in these sciences so that the guns of the cutters may receive the proper care, and so that the Coast Guard may be able to operate effectively as a Naval unit if the need should arise. With these ends in view, the courses in Ordnance at the Academy are designed to equip the future officers of the Service with a complete background of theoretical and practical knowledge of the construction, maintenance, use and limitations of the various guns and small arms used by the Coast Guard. During the cruises small-arms target practice is held and Ca- dets are tapght to shoot in order that they may later qualify as instructors for the crews of their ships. Also during this period, short-range battle practice is held, and Cadets carry out the duties of all persons concerned with the practice, from fire-control officer to the actual guns ' crews. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Lieutenant Gaines Albert Tyler Academy 1926 Physics Lieutenant Kenneth Keith Cowart Academy 1926 Steam Engineering, Physics Science " " riTH the single exception of Mathematics, Physics is probably the most important science that an engineer of any sort studies in preparation for his professional work. Furnishing the groundwork, as it does, for almost every engineering subject, it is very important that this science be covered thoroughly with the idea always in mind that the abstruse theory then being learned will have a practical application as the work becomes more specialized. Closely allied with Physics, and also of great importance, is the science of Chemistry. Because of its applications in thermodynamics, the more practical heat engines, the study of boilers and boiler water, corrosion prevention, electric batteries, and many other sub- jects in which an officer is vitally interested, Chemistry has a definite place in the Academy curriculum. Enough Mathcni.ttic i cnwrcJ during the preliminary six-weeks summer term to en- able the new Cadet to attack Chemistry at the beginning of the fourth class year. The course ex- tends over the first term; and the study of atomic structure and chemical reactions, besides the possibility of direct application to practical work to be taken up later, gives a splendid basis upon which to start the Physics course, which begins in the second term of the fourth class i $ $ $ $ « Edwin John Roland Academy 1929 Phyiics Lieutenant Robert Theodore Alexander Academy 1931 Physics, Chemistry Physics, as taught at the Academy, is one of the most thoroughly covered, and hence one of the most arduous subjects. A difficult but comprehensive textbook is used, and in the first two terms mechanics, properties of matter, heat, light, sound, electricity and magnetism are covered with great detail and with the conventional approach. In the final term, the newer Atomic Physics is taught, and the most modern theories in this field are covered. This section of the course lays a firm foundation for the study of radio, later on, and helps to explain many effects which would otherwise he difficult to understand. In connection with the classroom work and closely paralleling it, comprehensive labora- tory work is required, and with the splendid equipment with which the Academy is sup- plied, the experiments performed are abreast of the work done in the best technical schools of the country. Each year the course is improved by the addition of new equipment to the laboratory and by advancement m the methods of teaching. A lirsje library nt various authoritative texts to be used for reference is added to from time to time as new develop- ments in science are pubhshed. The standing of the Academy ' s courses in Physics is attested to by the results of the yearly ex- aminations which are given to students in colleges over the en- tire country. Since the Cadets have been taking these examina- tions, they have never failed to place, as a group, in the very highest brackets. $44t4$t44 4 4444 I iiNANT Allen Winbeck Academy 1929 Service Regulations, Coast Guard Courts Lieutenant Charles Breckenridge Arrington Academy 1931 Hxstory of C.r.l.Zdtum, Contimporary Problems Social Sciences npHE curriculum of any technical school tends to have an oversupply of professional - subjects with little emphasis being placed on cultural courses such as Economics, History and Philosophy, which round out a good education. The Academy is no exception to this rule, but of late years an effort has been made to remedy this defect, and a course in Contemporary Civiluation, covering the subjects mentioned above, has been added. Beginning with the Middle Ages and ending with the present day, the three-year course presents a complete picture of the economy, government and thought of the Western world, particular emphasis being laid on the current problems of the United States in agriculture, finance and sociology. Law enforcement was originally, and still remains, the primary function of the Coast Guard. Coast Guard officers must perform Boarding Duty in the enforcement of navigation, customs and tnspcctinn l,i v df the United States; therefore a knowledge of maritime law, and, in lesser degree, of civil law, is indispensable. The civil-law course gives the Cadet a general picture from antiquity to the modern legal systems. This is followed by Navigation Law which is taken up in detail. Finally Service Regu- lations and Courts and Boards are studied because of their great importance to an officer m relation to his life within the Service. Lieutenant Comm. James Albert Hirshfi Academy 1924 Spanish Gaston Norbert Buron French Sidney Frete Porteb Academy 1930 English, Logic Languages TT WAS John Paul Jones who is credited with being the first to remark chat an officer - ■ must also be a gentleman. It is no less true now than it was then, and since most people accept a man on what he appears to be, it is important that a Coast Guard officer have the appearance and manner of a gentleman, if nothing more ! This entails, among other things, the use of good English. But correct and lucid speaking is also important to an officer because of the necessity that he give clear and understandable orders and make concise and logical verbal and written reports; and that he be able to explain the duties and aims of the Service to people unfamiliar with it, if called upon. The courses in the Department of English include English composition, both written and oral. Current Events, Logic, and Service customs, and are given throughout the first year and a half. As a matter of cultural background and as a practical aid in carrying out the Coast Guard ' s diverse duties the study of a foreign language is much to be desired. For this reason the entering Cadets are divided into two sections, one of which studies Spanish and the other French for two years. An attempt is made to give the students a conversant knowledge of the language, as well as a brief glimpse of the literary classics of the nation concerned. tm fS 4 ■ ' M ' •0Y a ' m ' P " $ i i $$$$ ' $ $$$«$$ S ' Senior Surgeon, U.S.P.H.S. Carl Michel University of Illinois Dental Surgeon, US.P.H.S. Stanmore p. Marshall Atlanta Southern Dental College Medical Department THE United States Public Health Service maintains on the second floor of Hamilton Hall a fully equipped and ultramodern hospital wherein all injuries and ailments are dealt with by a force of competent doctors and pharmacists. Although small in si e, this unit IS complete in every respect, with operating room, dispensary. X-ray apparatus, dental cHnic, isolation rooms and, in fact, all those adjuncts to the science of medicine which can be found in even the largest hospitals of today. It would be vain to attempt to deal adequately with each phase of our equipment in a few words, but this may be said : whatever the malady, or however severe the injury, it presents no difficulty to our staff of physicians with the equipment on hand. No job is done haphazardly, no cure is left to chance. In a branch of work where the best is a neces- sity the Cadets are supplied with that best in no uncertain fashion. Although a Cadet sometimes finds it difficult to convince the doctors that he is really sick and not suffering from " Goldbncki- tis, " a careful watch is kept over the health of all Cadets, and a detailed health record is a AssisrANT Surgeon, U.S.P.H.S. Thorburn S. McGowar University of Tennes.ee Assistant Surgeon, U.S.P H.! Arthur Burdell Price Northwestern University fundamental part of the official record of each Cadet and of every officer in the Service. Once a year the Cadets undergo a thorough physical examination in which no defect passes undetected. Once during the four years of cadetship, generally during the second class year, each Cadet is given a special examination for qualifications for flying, and at the end of the four years the Medical Department must certify the health of all candidates for Commissions. In addition to the extensive work of patching and healing, the Medical Department is intrusted with the education of all future officers in personal and community hygiene and First Aid. The recognition and prompt handling of the more serious diseases and a practical knowledge of sanitation and the principles of hygiene are of great value to a Coast Guard OfEcer in the exercise of his ordinary duties aboard ship, and in the carrying out of special duties such as flood relief work. The Service takes to heart the valuable maxim that " an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, " and it is persis- tently applied to the medical and dental care of Cadets while they are at the Academy by the doc- tors of the sick bay. And oh, how comfortable those beds are! But how difficult to persuade the doctors to put you m one. $$$($( $( ( $$( $1 Commander, U. S. N. (Ch c.

During the past year the Corps had Chaplain Stephens, who has served in the Navy, afloat and ashore, for twenty years; he has been in Haiti with the U.S. Marines, had a term in Samoa, and has been Chaplain of the Asiatic Fleet. Naturally the Chaplain ' s work is largely personal. And Chaplain Stephens is a friend of kindly insight and profound experience who is always willing to help his " young men " with any problems which might encumber their rough paths — or merely to indulge in amicable conversation. As soon as you meet our Chaplain you know that he is a " regular fellow. " Every Sunday a nondenomi- national Chapel Service is held in the auditorium. This quiet hour of devotion is indispensable to Cadet routine; soft music, spirited hymns, and an informal sermon make us realize that there are other things to think about besides textbooks and examina- tions, and enable us to attack the problems the next week with renewed vigor. $$$(t(i $$i ly John Spence Merriman, Jr. Springfield College 1923 Physical Education, Head Coach Chief Petty Officer Harry K. McClernon Boxing Coach anJ Trainer Physical Education " P VEN in the Department of Physical Education a Cadet acquires knowledge which will - ' be essential to his future in the Service. Aboard ship the junior officer usually is desig- nated Athletic Officer — and as such he must manage, and often coach, numerous sports for the crew. Hence, ability developed at the Academy in almost any line of athletics will add to the professional fitness of the young officer and insure popularity with his men. At the Academy every Cadet participates in athletics. An hour — and generally more — is provided every afternoon as athletic hour, and everyone gets adequate exercise. Varsity men practice in their respective sports, and all others take part in interclass activi ' ties. During the year Cadets are encouraged to indulge in as many different forms of athletics as possible to obtain the benefit of various types of exercise. Mr. Mernman and " Mickey " , with their good humor and will- ingness to help, do splendid work in their department, in intra- mural as well as varsity athletics, and It IS due mainly to their efforts that the Academy is able to turn out such good athletic teams with so little material with which to work. $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ 4 $ 4 Warrant Officers Chief Machinist EDWARD A.

Mid-year exams took their toll from our staunch group, but those who remained carried on hopefully. Spring found us anticipating our first practice cruise; and before we knew it our first year as Cadets had ended and we were moving aboard ship, meanwhile trying to discover the difference between the paint locker and the berth deck, both of which were about the same si:e. 119 GOC YtNfWLCNDON 5Y TMt MARK TWRtf r :-j« ' ( RIG ING AWNINGS CROWS MtST AS WE SHOVED OFF from the Academy dock we felt a thrill of freedom, and we pictured adventure beyond the horiion. Life at sea was new to us. We stood watches in the crow ' s nest, at the helm, and on the signal bridge. We became salty, especially when fresh water ran low and the showers provided sea water. On the first night out we struck — or were struck by — a genuine gale, which took a great deal out of us, including our desire to be sea-faring men. 120 lk5T DAY OUT WtAVe AWAY PLENTY Of OCf AN TMt5TAff-Rf5T5 MAL-Dt -Met i WE PITCHED AND ROLLED, hut sailed on, and on.

As soon as we reached the Gulf Stream the weather became soothing and the sea smooth. Life was tolerable although still toilsome.

We needed time for boat drills, sea watches, ship ' s work, and notebook studies. We spent our " spare " time shining brightwork, soogeeing, painting, and holystoning. Occasionally we slept, but only occa- sionally. Those in the blac gang escaped the harassing tasks of the deck force by use of the oft-quoted: " But. sir, I ' m an engineer.

A few more of our pals returned to civilian life, and the rest of us plodded on and somehow got by. We lived in anticipation of the wonderful summer we were going to spend at the Academy while the other classes made the regular cruise. When it came it meant more studying, lots of week-end cruising, and very little liberty. 5W0RDfl5M wo!

We went sword-bshmg (hut being merciful we never killed any) and it was fun to stay aloft for hours on end while the ship rolled and the sun beat down.

In due time we did; we became sack-holders of the first water. i rfNtRAL MU5Tt! STANDING E)Y TNt b G 5WOT5 AU i tVOlD. SOON ENOUGH we were living on a Cutter again. We found ourselves enroute to Europe— to the North Sea this time. As first classmen we had serious responsibilities.

This section is dedicated to the men who do it and the ones who tell others to do it. P1 P?5J t;?3 tv==3 C V t=5=I L Tnnl ' isi BATTALION ON THE LINE TN A Service such as this, military discipline plays an important and very necessary part in the training of its men. The word " military " gener- ally connotes a force groomed primarily for the purpose of carrying on war. but this is not the fundamental reason for its application here at the Acad emy. Although it is not the vicious, destructive warfare so well-known the Coast Guard does, however, wage a continual war against the devasta tion wrought by the sea. Created to safeguard shipping as well as to en force laws in American waters, the Service consequently does its most beneficial work during peacetime. Its ships are ever on the watch along the coast line, and particularly in the most dangerous weather, always prepared to give aid to vessels in distress. However, in time of war the Coast Guard operates as a part of the Navy and has played a distinguished part in every war in which the United States has engaged. The proper performance of these duties de ' mands discipline, the co-ordination of all forces, and a deeply felt sense of duty and sacrifice. Military training and organization are the means by which this end is obtained, so they play a predominant part in life at the Academy, and it is necessary if officers are to be trained who wil l be able to meet the emergencies that will be offered in the Service. Without it, disorder and Lt. (j. g.) D. T. Adams Tactics Ojf cer COLUMN OF SQUADS confusion would take the place of discipline and precision under pressure. With this in mind a firm, though just, discipline is maintained at the Academy, and it takes but a short time for the new Cadet to realize that ' ' this is not a college, but a military institution. " The first year of the process, wherein the Cadet absorbs the fundamentals of military life (along with a few hard knocks to his pride and self ' importance), proves to be a very arduous one. Actually he begins to wonder just what could have possessed him to have expended so much energy in getting himself into such a position. It is after the first year has passed and he can view it in the proper perspective that he begins to realize what a necessity the mili- tary training is, and what improvements it has made in him. With the end of the " swab " year, and the acquisition of one stripe, life at the Academy takes on a new color. As a third classman, with little responsibility and few privileges, the Cadet thrives in his rel- ative obscurity. He has readjusted himself to the ways of military life and finds it a most efficient and practical system of organization. After another year he becomes a second- classman and takes over some of the responsi- bilities connected with life at the Academy. BATTALION Commander Adjutant H. Land M. A. Whalen A COMPANY He has spent two years in learning to take orders m order that he may- give them properly, and now in his second ' class year he begins to give them and prepares to take over the duties of first-classmen. In his last year the Cadet performs the duties of commissioned officers in the role of Cadet Officer-of-the-Day. He is directly responsible to the Com- missioned Officer-of-the-Day for the carrying out of daily routine. This duty is rotated among the members of the first-class in order of seniority. In this way actual training is given each man in the handling of men in much the same way as he will be called upon to do later on as an officer in the Service. The corps is organized in a battalion consisting of two companies which in turn are composed of two platoons each. Three squads of eight men each comprise the platoon, the squad leaders of these squads being chosen from the second-class. The battalion, company, and platoon officers are chosen from the first-class, the pos itions being awarded according to the military ability and bearing ot the individuals, based on actual handling of the units, the battalion commander being the one deemed most worthy of the position. Infantry drill is held four hours weekly except during the winter months. It otten becomes irk- A COMPANY Commander Adiitttint C. Vaughn L. L.

" However, as graduation time approaches, with Its competitive drills between companies, platoons, and individuals, drill takes on a more interesting aspect. These drills are judged by Army, Navy, and Marine Corps officers and each cadet in the corps is out to win the honors for his unit. Trophies are awarded the winners in the competition and it is usually a difficult job for the judges, as the competition is keen. At times the stress laid on military may seem unwarranted but when one considers the many varied duties required of an officer, from the ice and seal patrols to the most recently inaugurated inspection of whaling vessels, it is easy to understand that it is mandatory that these men be equipped to meet these situa- tions squarely and intelligently. And so if the Academy is to continue in serving its purpose, it is necessary that military training continues in its role of importance, so that its graduates will " be worthy of the traditions of com- missioned officers in the United States Coast Guard in the service of their country and humanity.

McDowell AssistdTit Treasurer Football Squad 1936-37 FOOTBALL THE 1936 football season was one of the most successful for the Academy in a long time, and was in many ways the best in history, with a record of two wins, three ties and two losses against teams rated as vastly superior by everyone — except a fighting, hard- playing, hard-hitting team of midget Cadets. The average weight of the line was below 175 pounds and the backiield averaged 160, but what the team lacked m sue was more than compensated for by their indomitable spirit and their speed. In spite of the handicap under which Coach Mernman worked because of backfield Coach Roland ' s absence in Spain, and serious injuries to Captain Mark Whalen, star end, and Quarterback Bill Cass in the first game, the team was consistently outplayed only once during the entire year, in the Connecticut State College game. Realizing that talk of moral victories will not be tolerated, and with no attempt at self- justification, it is interesting to note that the Big (?) Blue team did score on the Storrs-men for the first time m ten years, in this game. Utilizing a brilliant forward and lateral passing attack, coupled with deceptive running plays, the Cadets had a strong and dangerous offense. On defensive work, their holding of vastly heavier teams in goal-line stands spoke for itself. For every minute of every game the team kept fighting, secure in the knowledge that there is no dishonor in losing a battle to the other side as long as they know that they have had a real scrap. With a splendid nucleus of lettermen and a fine group of reserves (some of which are savvy fourth-classmen, thank God) the prospects for the season now about to begin are particularly bright, and Coaches Mernman and Roland look forward to a smashingly successful year. ■ S ACADEMY WESLEYAN Consternation reigned supreme in the Wesleyan squad after three quarters of the 1936 opening game. Although prcgame favorites and outweighing the Cadets at every position, it was increasingly dilficult to reconcile these advantages with the manner in which Cap- tain Mark Whalen ' s men were out-charging and out-fightmg the big Cardinals. The Acad- emy ' s mighty atoms, utilizing a varied assortment of forwards and laterals, with and without fake line bucks, brought the ball into scoring territory twice in the first half, but both times were repulsed by a strong Wesleyan goal-line stand. The Cadets staged one last drive in the opening of the second halt which ended when the ball failed to clear the bar in an attempted field goal. In the early moments of the fourth quarter two unfortunate injuries were sustained by Captain Whalen and " Quarterback Jim " Cass; the former being forced from the game because of a dislocated elbow and the latter suffering a dislocated shoulder. A rallying Wesleyan team then began a series of drives that gave the Academy sup- porters a nervous last few minutes when the hard-hitting Cardinal halfback, Daddario, reeled off several long gains. Twice the Academy team rose to great heights to smother the determined Wesleyan smashes on the Cadets ' three-yard marker. A last moment attempt by the Cardinals to kick a field goal, though actually passing through the cross bars twice, was unsuccessful since in the first instance both teams were off side and in the second the final whistle was sounded before the ball was snapped from center. Thus the scrappiest, most brilliant Coast Guard Academy-Wesleyan game ended m a scoreless tie. $$$$4444$$$iiii Cass ACADEMY WORCESTER POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE The second game of the season, with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, was also the second of the three tie games which the Academy played this season, more than any other college in the United States. The Worcester eleven opened up with a drive that gave them possession of the ball on the Academy ' s four-yard line. Awakening to a realization of the dire possibilities, the Cadets summoned all reserve strength to hold the goal line from invasion. After kicking the ball out of the danger area, the Blue and White eleven played an ef- fective but not outstanding defensive game until toward the end of the half, when a new ambition fired the Academy team. Hard plunges and well-directed passes by Land and Waldron, received by the wily " Iron Man " Bakanas, sent the ball into Worcester ' s " worry- ing " territory when the half-time whistle blew, spoiling the threat. The third period was characterized by mid-field scrimmaging with remarkable defensive work by both teams. Though the Academy seemed unable to click offensively, Acting-Captain Prins, Land, Winstead, and Waldron were able to smash the hopes of the Engineers ' hard-hitting back- field. The last phase of the game witnessed a belated aerial attack by the Academy which brought the ball into the Engineers ' scoring territory. From this hopeful vantage the tide turned completely against the Blue and White eleven when two offside penalties lost valuable ground and possession of the ball. A last valiant goal-line stand was staged by the tired Cadets. The surging battle finally ended with Worcester again threatening the seemingly impassable Coast Guard goal line. J $$$$$$$$ ACADEMY MIDDLEBURY Buoyed up by the record of having held two highlytouted teams scoreless o n preceding Saturdays, but anxious to demonstrate diligently rehearsed offensive tactics, the Academy invaded the Middlebury College stadium determined to conquer a team which had already won Its first two games. The usual conceded advantage of weight worked to the special favor of the Panthers due to the drizzling rain that continued throughout the game. Smashing an opening Cadet drive, the Panthers opened with their main battery to march steadily down the ram-soaked turf, literally pushing an amazed Cadet eleven backward. When in the later part of the quarter the Cadet line gained a surer footing, a cleverly executed fake end run by Boehm of Middlebury which terminated m a long pass to Kirk in the end zone netted the Panthers their first score. The second quarter was a repetition of the first with the heavier Middlebury line forcing its way to a second tally. The Cadet steam nearly pulled the game out of the bag in the third quarter by utilizing all of Its trickiness. First a line buck with the ball going from Cass to Land and later a sleeper pass from Cass to Waldron brought the ball in the proximity of Middlebury ' s goal but on neither occasion could the final punch be mustered. The game was completed amid desperate passes by both teams in a last-minute effort to score. The Cadets ' backfield had at least not only effectively bottled up the punt blocking Panther end, Bill Craig, but had gotten off several long, high punts despite the precarious footing. $( $$$$$$ $ $$$ ' McClelland Land plunges ACADEMY 14 AMERICAN UNIVERSITY 7 Although feeling it high time a victory wreath should be laid at Objee ' s feet, the Blue eleven opened its second game against American University lackadaisically. Lucky breaks and clever ball handling brought the ball to the Eagles ' two-yard marker in the opening few minutes, where the Cadets lost the ball on downs. Whereupon the Eagles began a full field march which culminated in a score plus conversion m the second quarter. A pass by Hal Toner of American University to Sparky Bartlett from the 15-yard line netted the score. This rude awakening enraged the Blue team to such an extent that only fourteen plays after the kick-off were needed to equalize the scores. Like their opponents, the Cadets utilized aerial methods for their six points with a pass from Cass to Whalen. Davis had to drop kick through the posts twice since both teams were offside on the first attempt. In the same half, as a result of a fumbled kick-off and subsequent poor kick by American University, coupled with a brilliant run by Larry Davis to the Eagles ' two-yard line and a hard smashing line play by Waldron, another six points were added to the Academy side of the score board. This score was quickly brought to fourteen when Davis, in his uncanny manner, sped the ball through the uprights. The defensive play by the Cadets ' line during the second half was outstanding for its relentless, smashing quality. The backfield ably backed up the hard-dnving line by snatch- ing passes time and again. The only regrettable feature of the game was the unnecessary roughness of the American University players in the last moments of the game, which drew heavy penalties for them. A tricky play solved Land ACADEMY 6 NORWICH UNIVERSITY 6 Similar to the Middlebury trip in that another downpour of rain awaited the combat but dissimilar in that this time the loyal Academy Corps would be backing its efforts, the game was anxiously awaited by the Blue team as a chance to obtain its first victory of the season, and even more, to retain the " Mug " which had been presented seven previous times, four times to the Academy, the last time being in 1935. The first quarter was noteworthy only in that neither team could retain possession of the ball once the scoring territory of the other team had been entered and also by the attempted field goal by Cass, which was unsuccessful. During the second canto the Horsemen made the most of a lucky break, the successful faking of a kick, which ended m a pass, and reached that area of the field regarded by the Cadets as " No Trespassing Land. " But oblivious to this wish. Brown of Norwich scored on an ofF-tackle play. The Horsemen were unable to convert. The dismayed Blue team avenged this slight by immediately driving down the field for 60 yards and sent Gus Land over the scoring ;one line to equal the score. Davis, attempting a drop kick, was unsuccess- ful. This drive marked the new tenor of the game for two successive surges toward the Norwich goal were staged although neither resulted in a score. The mud-covered players ended their valiant efforts with the final whistle. The tie score of 6-6 was the Academy ' s third tie of the season. $$$$$(t$(($$$$$$$ ACADEMY 12 CONNECTICUT STATE COLLEGE 45 The only flood-light game of the season was played against Connecticut State before the largest crowd in Academy history. The game opened with the heavier, faster-charging Connecticut State team driving from their own thirty-yard line to the Cadets ' end zone in a series of plunges by Posner and Thompson of Connecticut State. The try for point after touchdown was blocked by the Cadets. Upon receiving the kick-off the Cadets began an aerial attack that netted a first down after which a high pass from center hit Quarterback Cass ' s shoulders to drop in the arms of O ' Grady who raced to the Cadet goal for another score. Another smashing attack netted a touchdown for the Staters. Assuming the offensive, the Cadets opened up with a barrage of passes and long gains by Davis to finish with a score when a pass from Cass to Waldron was completed. The Cadets strove mightily during the remainder of the half to even up the lopsided score but failed when an intercepted pass m State ' s scoring territory was returned 85 yards by Posner for another score. Passes, both flat and long, were used by the Cadets in the third quarter, but to little avail, while Posner again evaded Blue tacklers to make what proved to be the last score of the game for Connecticut State. Continuing a deluging passing attack during the last quarter, the Cadets rang up a marker when Land caught a toss from Cass in State ' s end zone. The plucky Academy team never wavered in its fighting spirit despite the overwhelm- ing score against it and continually tried to turn to their advantage any opportunities that might present themselves. The State team was " on " in every sense of the word and rightly deserved its 45 fought-for points. ACADEMY 26 MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 20 The Academy eleven rebounded with great elayi from the terrific beating received on the previous week-end to conclude the 1936 campaign with what was truly a masterpiece. The lacing administered to the pre-game favorites, Massachusetts State, in way of atone- ment was more convincing than the final score would indicate. Emulating the opportunist opponents of the previous week, the Cadets out-charged and out-ran the heavier Caraway men. In the first canto Cass, finding no receiver open for a scheduled pass, trotted forty-five yards for the opening score. It was his first trip across an opponent ' s goal line in four years of college football. A whirlwind passing attack brought another touchdown to the Acad- emy side of the ledger during the second quarter. Later a brilliant quick kick by Cass gave Massachusetts State the ball on our own two-yard line. Hoping for a break, the Bay Staters attempted a pass which was intercepted by Cass, who ran it to their two-yard line, from which spot a pass from Cass to Davis was completed. With nineteen points against them the Bay Staters opened their main batteries in the second half to gain a tally on a long pass. This act was avenged by Land who raced 53 yards for the Academy ' s fourth touchdown. In the closing moments of the game the tired Cadets were given a slight scare by Massa- chusetts State as two determined aerial thrusts were successful, thus bringing the score to 26-20 and averting an utter rout. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$? Boxing Squad 1936- J7 BOXING BOXING IS a comparatively recent addition to Academy intercollegiate sports. A few abortive attempts to introduce it had failed, when in 1929 " Mickey " McClernon, a top-notch welterweight, was induced by Commander J. S. Baylis to come to the Academy to form a boxing team. The first meet was with Springfield College in 1930 with Cadet, now Lieutenant, H. T. Diehl as captain. For three years the team gradually improved, meeting Springfield and M. I. T. each year until 1933-34, when a full schedule of four bouts was arranged. The record of the team since then against the finest teams that the East has to offer has been nothing short of sensational, considering especially the very limited supply of material available to develop teams. During the past three years the Academy boxers have won thirteen meets and lost seven. An unusually difficult schedule has been outlined for this coming winter taking in as it does the University of Toronto, Canadian Intercollegiate Champions, University of Western Maryland, Syracuse, Yale and the University of Maryland, Eastern Intercollegiate Champions. Much credit for this fine schedule must go to Lieutenant D. T. Adams, the officer in charge, whose interest and help have aided Mickey greatly in making the team the success it was this last season. The prospects for the boxing squad next year are very good, with six lettermen back (if God and the Academic Board wills) and a host of experienced " plug-uglies " literally fighting for a chance to show what they can do. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ACADEMY 5 YALE 3 Holding their stride in the race for intercollegiate fame, the Academy boxers conquered a powerful Yale team by a score of 5-3. " Wee Willie " Morrison, Blue and White contestant in the 115-pound division, de- served more than credit for the point he gained by his pounding defeat of Rocco Fasenella of the Blue, because of his starvation reduction from 135 pounds, made in order to enter this division. " Jabbing Jim " Mcintosh displayed the skill that has made boxing " a sport of gentlemen " against Yale ' s Hickenlooper to garner a hard-won decision. Never one to disappoint a thrill-seeking crowd, " Slashing " Bob Prause took a terrific beating from Charlie Wright of Yale for two consecutive rounds, and then about-faced to knock out the amazed Charlie. " Herschel Bar " Sanders, in the 145-pound class, furthered his g rowing fame by smoothly, cleverly and nonchalantly outpointing " Ell " Tucker, a veteran of no small prowess. The first draw of the meet was given in the hard-fought bout between McLaughlin of the Academy and Miller of Yale. The next bout, in the 165-pound class, constituted the sensation of the meet. Captain Land moved up from his usual weight class to meet Yale ' s captain, Dick Galland. Land matched Galland ' s lightning-like speed and forced the fight which the judges decided to be a draw. Watson of Yale narrowly outpointed " Big Jim " Weaver in the 175-pound division. Jim made a brilliant comeback after a lirst-round knockdown though he had suffered a broken hand in that round. The heavyweight bout was won by Danielson of Yale, who displayed great skill and smashing punches against " Rib Cracker " McClelland. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ACADEMY 5 HARVARD 21 The stage for the 1937 boxing season being set, the curtains swept aside, revealing the strongest Cadet squad of all time. Opening a schedule overflowing with the cream of Eastern boxing ability, the aggressive McClernon-men swamped Harvard, 5 " 2|. The Crimson, victorious in fifteen previous meets, produced only one conqueror, Peter OIney, who won a decision over Jim McLaughlin in the 165 ' pound event. " Smashing Jim " Mcintosh, the Academy ' s red-headed entry in the 125-pound class, divided the points with Jimmy Kostorelos, Harvard veteran. Evenly matched, the draw decision was inevitable. The 135-pound struggle leaned slightly on the slapstick side, with Punch-slinging Prause, who has eHminated the words " Take it easy " from his vocabulary, finally finding the range to Henry " Elbows " Sherlock ' s head. Both contestants threw all thoughts of science to the wind to wade into a long-remembered slug-fest which ultimately gave Prause the fight by a kayo. As artful as the previous scrap had been artless was the Sanders-Ellis bout m the 145- pound division. Lightning-like punches and fast, clever footwork by both men set this meeting aside as the most outstanding of the evening. The Academy ' s welterweight, Hersh Sanders, vanquished handily his rugged Crimson opponent, Dwight Ellis. H. " Bituminous " Land, the Cadet 155-pounder, swung into action against Lamar- coached Ed Davis, who courageously warded off the dynamite-laden gloves of the captain of the Cadet team, but Land took the decision. In the other 155-pound bout, Ralph " Punchy " West drew with Al Corbett, Lamar-man, on an evenly boxed match. " Beeg Jim " Weaver thrilled the Academy fans by cleanly and smartly out-pointing Harvard ' s big Hank Lloyd in the 175-pound class to garner another of those highly-coveted points. " Mac " McClelland made his debut in boxing circles in the final bout of the evening against the Cambridgeman Joe Gluech. After sparring for two rounds the big men wound up the meet with flying fists and hard smashes to end with a draw. ' $ $ 1 f - L.iiid ready for the kill ACADEMY 5 SPRINGFIELD The meet with Springfield brought the first out ' of ' town bouts and the third straight win of the season. The fray began with a point for each team, as the Academy decided not to enter a boxer in the 135-pound division and Springfield had no heavyweight. The events opened with Blue and White ' s " Pink Panther " Mcintosh against Eddie Donovan in the 125 ' pound class. It was a contest aptly described by the single word " class. " Donovan by a third-round flurry was able to outpoint his opponent to win the decision. Sanders in the 145-pound division knocked out Courtland Cooley in the third round with a terrific right cross to the point of the chin. Sandy ' s power was badly needed, for the Springfield flash ' s weaving caused many of the former ' s punches to fly wide. Reginald Membleton West, the Academy ' s 155-pound entry, proved definitely that boxing skill can be acquired in one season, for he boxed his opponent. Ward Mover of Springfield, beautifully for the entire fray to win handily. Captain " Bigoted " Land stepped from his regular division to the 165-pound class to meet and knock out " Hacking Hank " Walmsley of Springfield. The Cadet leader had an uphill battle all the way due to a first-round eye injury from Hank ' s elbow. The knock-out blow occurred in the third round after a melee of swinging gloves. The last bout featured Jim " The Dandy " McLaughlin who, like Land, left his usual weight to box against Springfield ' s Frank Folsom in the 175-pound division. Jim overcame Folsom ' s advantages of height and reach by his superior skill and power to win the rounds with increasing margin. This point swelled the Academy ' s score to 5 ag:iinst Springfield ' s 2. $$$$$4$4$4$$$a ' McLaughlin ACADEMY U SYRACUSE U. 5 With the confidence instilled by three straight victories, the McClernon-men traveled to Syracuse University to challenge the supremacy of the team that was to win the Eastern Intercollegiate Boxing Championship in March. " Jarring Jim " Mcintosh opened the evening detail against " Slashing Sam " Sorenson in the 125-pound division. A glancing blow by Sorenson over Jim ' s eye, which produced a severe cut, caused the bout to be stopped and a technical knockout accredited to Sorenson. Syracuse ' s flashy lightweight " Fighting Fred " Zuccars cleverly evaded the never-ceasing lunges of " Battling Bob " Prause for two rounds, meanwhile socking Bob plenty. But the Battler ' s furious third-round slugging nearly swept away Freddy ' s narrowly-won decision. The next fray, in the 145-pound class, introduced Winslow " Grandpop " Buxton of the Blue and White and Frank " Dynamite " Dons of Syracuse to intercollegiate fighting circles and netted the Academy its only decision of the evening. Buck fought a courageous fight against an equally game opponent. The other welterweight bout furnished the greatest display of skill of the meet. " Gentle- man Jim " Sanders of the Academy met Johnny Mastrello, present intercollegiate cham- pion, to trade punches with equal skill and cleverness. The award of the decision to Mas- trello will be a subject of controversy among Academy fans for many a year. Captain Land lost a heartrendingly close decision to " Fuzzy " Art McGivern, former intercollegiate champion. The second 155-pound encounter saw Ralph " Elbows " West meeting " Lunging Bob " Griffiths of S. U. A butting of heads in the second round which resulted in profuse bleeding of both men caused a double technical knockout to be awarded. The final bout, between " PeeWee " Brown of Syracuse and Joe McClelland of the Academy in the heavyweight division, was the third hotly-contested bout in which the decision went to Syracuse. ACADEMY 6 M.I.T, li The 1Q37 season was brought to a sensational close hy the defeat of M.I.T. at Cambridge. The Academy ' s diminutive star, " PeeWee " Morrison, survived a grueling weight ' eliminating ordeal to meet and conquer Ipishi Takahasaki, M.I.T. ' s Japanese flyweight, by a technical knockout. Discreet towel-tossing by Ipishi ' s seconds saved him from complete annihilation. Prause, fighting in the lightweight division, was awarded a decision over Ted Lee, a Chinese engineering student. " Slamming Sam " Sanders felled " Flying Phil " Constance in the welterweight division, in his own inimitable manner. " Rambling Ralph " West, the Academy ' s entry m the first 155 ' pound bout, obtained a draw with " Truckin ' Bill " Tuck of M.I.T. With a whirlwind finish to his fourth spectacu- lar season of intercollegiate boxing. Captain Harold Land stopped Frank Halloway, captain of M.I.T. ' s courageous team, by administering nine successive knockdowns before a technical knockout was accredited to him. A fourth knockout, that of Lee Rugo of Cambridge, was accomplished by James McLaughlin, the Academy ' s 165-pounder. Starting the bout swiftly, Jim hammered with two lead-laden mitts to down his opponent. Bob " Science " Laverty, the Cadet light-heavyweight, lost a decision to Hank Kettendorf of M.I.T. Their slug-fest lasted three delicious rounds, with Henry landing the greatest number ot punches. " Jabbing Joe " McClelland used his steadfast left to gain a large margin of points over Bill Morehouse. Mac ' s victory brought the score to 6h for the Academy against the M.I.T. total of U. This meet brought the greatest boxing season in Academy annals to a close with a total of four victories and one defeat. The fine spirit of Mickey ' s boxers coupled with their scientific skill can be attributed almost entirely to the superlative coaching and splendid sportsmanship of Coach McClernon. $i|$$$$$( $$$$$$$ BASKETBALL ' T HE basketeers waded through a stiff schedule of twelve games, playing far better ball - than the final summary might seem to indicate. Said summary reveals four wins and eight losses, three by close scores and five that were not so close. About the middle of the season Bill Cass, captain and mainstay of the team, was sent to the sidelines for good after dislocating a football shoulder for the second time. Later Jpk Bob Waldron suffered a broken foot which further handicapped the ( • ' team during the last few games, Bakanas, Davis, Russell, Wmstead and Mt Leismg carried on with excellent spirit against some very good teams, but the scoring punch of Cass and the basket-proof guarding of Waldron were sorely missed. Next year we will miss Cass, Davis, and Bakanas very much. All three were accurate shooters, sure and quick in handling the ball, and never lost the old kaydet spirit because they were playing a supposedly superior team. We may find other men to take their places, but we shall not forget the excellent brand of ball they played for us throughout four years of varsity basketball. A number of capable substitutes were developed during the year, among them Ing, the Engel twins, Martin, R. R. Russell and Wuerker. These men, with the remaining regulars, will form the nucleus of the team this coming winter, which should be one of the most successful in years. ACADEMY 29 CLARK UNIVERSITY 25 In the first game of the season the Blue and White showed themselves to be an excellent combination. With Cass and Bakanas leading the offense, Leising getting the tipoffs, and Waldron and Winstead guarding the rear zones the Cadets quickly took the lead and held it thereafter. Coast Guard ' s short, snappy passes looked good but the long passes were rather erratic. The half ended with the score 17-11. The Blue team resumed with a hang in the second half, scoring several times in quick succession. Then Clark got in and the ball was rushed up and down the floor without any- one scoring often. Russell, fourth class, got into the game and proved to be a valuable asset to the team. With but seven minutes to play Winstead went out on personal fouls. Clark put on the pressure and cut down the lead, making the final score 29-25. ACADEMY 23 WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY 38 Next week the Academy team seemed to be off its game when it journeyed to Middletown to meet the big fast Wesleyan team. Wesleyan took the lead in short order, although Coast Guard made the first basket. Our boys had difficulty in accustoming themselves to strange baskets and floor. Our co- ordination and accuracy were not as good as the previous week ' s game. Sondstrom and Klinger, Wesleyan aces, led their team with brilliance to lead the Academy by six points at the half. The second half was a repetition of the first, with our men fighting to the end but seem- ingly unable to get started. In spite of their hard playing the Cadets were down fifteen points when the final gun sounded. f ACADEMY 31 CONNECTICUT STATE COLLEGE 34 I This game looked like a victory at first but the tall State boys were a little too much for the Blue and White. Coast Guard opened the scoring with a long shot. Long shots were the specialty that night, in fact, with neither team getting in under the basket often during the first half. The accuracy of the boys in Blue was the better on the long-distance heaves in the first half, which closed with the Academy ahead. Bill Cass led his men in a furious attack during the beginning of the second half to increase their lead. Waldron did an ex- cellent job blocking the efforts of Janega, State forward, but Long John Pringle, opposing center, would not be held and led his team to victory m the last few minutes of play. The irony of this game was that the Academy scored two more field goals than State, a situation made possible because only one of our eight free throw attempts went through the hoop. . $$$(|$$$( $$$$$$$ ' I ACADEMY 35 BOSTON UNIVERSITY 38 What looked like an easy victory turned into an exciting finish and another defeat by three points. Cass made the first basket of the evening and the Blue and White p |» were off. Both teams tried a great many long shots, Coast Guard with |Mg far greater accuracy. Neither team showed that co-operation which is necessary to break a good defense and get in under the basket. At the half the Academy was on the long end of a comfortable 20-13 score. Boston U. came back a new team and Coast Guard was forced to take the defensive. Winstead did a great job holding down Sol Nechtem, opposing ace, and with Larry Davis ' help snatched the ball from the Bostoners many times. As the half wore on the absence of Leising and Bob Waldron because of sickness became evident and Boston started gaining on the Cadets. The remainder of the game was played mostly around Coast Guard ' s basket. In a final effort the Cadets cut down the lead Boston had gained, but were not quite able to catch up. ACADEMY 46 AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY 36 This game started fast with both teams playing good ball, but the Academy took the lead early and by the half the score was 23-13 in our favor. The Cadets ' game was much improved over the previous week; their passes were accurate and they were getting quite a few shots from directly under the basket. Coach Merriman ' s drilling in foul shooting showed results, which were gratifying after the record set on the previous week. In the second half A. I. U. came back strong and brought the score up to 25-24 in the third quarter. But Bill Cass got the boys under way again with a beautiful long shot and thereafter the game was all Coast Guard. ACADEMY 15 TRINITY COLLEGE 48 For the first time m nine years of competition Trinity beat a Cadet basketball team, and we admit that they certainly deserved to win. Trinity opened the game with some whirlwind playing and eagle-eye shooting. The Blue and White team had an off night and seemed to get all the bad breaks, too. With that setup Trinity ran up thirty points in the first half while we were getting five. The second half began with both teams using second string players. Vaughn, the Engel twins, Ing, and Russell added several points to ou ' score, but did not gain much on the straight-shooting Trinity crowd. The first teams went in again and the game ended with few addi- i tional scores on either side. Most notable fact about the game was the fact that Bill Cass failed to score for the first time m four years. $( $$$$$(1$$$$$$ t. Leising ACADEMY 32 MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 41 During the preceding week Bill Cass had again dislocated his shoulder and the doctors would not let him continue playing. Waldron played forward in Cass ' s absence, turning in a very capable game and the most points for Coast Guard. The game was fast and even the greater part of the way, with the Academy holding tenaciously to a slim lead until the fourth quarter. Russell played Waldron ' s place at guard, and Winstead did some A-1 guarding to make this possible. In the last few minutes the Bay Staters put on a spurt; led by Francis Riel, who made seven points in fewer minutes, they cinched up the game beyond recovery. ACADEMY 29 NORWICH UNIVERSITY 21 The night after their fast game at Amherst the Coast Guard played Norwich at Northfield. Norwich opened with two field goals, but the Blue and White bore down with the re- sult that they gained the lead in the first quarter. In the first half Waldron broke his foot when he collided with a stone pillar in back of the basket; this injury kept him off the floor for the rest of the season, almost as much of a blow as the loss of Bill Cass. Winstead went out on personals in the second half, and things looked black, or at least a dark gray, for the Cadet team. The subs played the harder for it, and led by Bakanas and Davis they increased the lead to win by eight points. This is the third con- secutive victory over the Norwich team and hence the third year that the Days basketball trophy has remained in Billard Hall. ACADEMY 3,5 BOSTON UNIVERSITY 52 In the second game the Bostonians looked much better " -__ ' pjj than they had a month earlier, and the loss of Cass and Waldron showed up in the playing of our team. The rear court work was not quite what it had been previously with Waldron handling the ball, although Russell and Winstead turned in their usual creditable game. The eagle eye and co-ordination of Bill Cass were noticeably 4 needed in the forward division. , i In the first half Boston was in the lead a few points. Both sides were scoring freely, but the accuracy of Sol Nechtem gave the opposition an edge. i The Bostoners ran wild in the second half; they did not i M try an unusual number of shots, but it seemed they just f couldn ' t miss. Vaughn $$$$$$$$(|5$J$$$ i Ml One point for Coast Guard Ing played center for the greater part of the game, and did it well; he was second only to Vic Bakanas in scoring. ACADEMY 46 NEW YORK AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 35 Scoring practically at will, the Cadets won a clear-cut victory over the Aggies on their first appearance in New London. The greater part of the Cadets ' points were made on long accurate field goals, but the floorwork was good, too; accurate foul shooting added several points to our score. Stars of the game were undoubtedly Vic Bakanas and Tut Russell. They leaped high, wide, and handsome, intercepting passes and taking the ball off the backboard, and their shooting was accurate, as was that of Davis, Winstead, and Leising, who was high point man for the evening. At the half we had a lead of only four points because of a last- minute spurt of the Aggies, but with Bakanas and Russell leading the way Coast Guard built up a sizable lead and kept it. To say the least, the work of the first team was impressive; we wonder , „ - just how far the Academy team might have gone were there no MH such thing as off nights. ACADEMY 3Q WORCESTER POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE 54 The lanky sixfooters from Worcester provided competition that made one of the most exciting games of the season, until that final fourth-quarter spurt. 170 ■ Two points more Playing good defensive and fairly good offensive ball the Cadets matched Tech point for point throughout the first half, the score being in Tech ' s favor, 24-23, at half time. Coming back strong the Cadets, spectacularly led by Bakanas, maintained a lead of a point or two into the fourth quarter. With the score 36-35 in our favor we suddenly seemed to encounter a jinx, while the Worcester men had a new lease on life. From then until the end, the game was a rout, Tech sinking about one field goal per minute. It was a hard game to lose, but the Academy must be given credit for the excellent showing they made m the first three quarters against a team with as high a reputation as that of Worcester ' s. ACADEMY 20 CONNECTICUT STATE COLLEGE 62 The last game of the season saw the Academy five further handicapped by the illness of Claude Winstead, whose ability as a ball handler was needed badly to work through the tight defense of the State team. In the first half of the game Coast kept the score down by playing the State team very closely and using several time-outs to check scoring sprees. Connecticut had a good lead at the beginning of the second half and they increased it throughout the rest of the game. Both long and short shots went through the hoop for the Staters, while the Academy could not seem to ring up a basket by any means, in fact Coast Guard made not one field goal m the entire second half.

Mi4 §Mi - Baseball Squad 19?7 BASEBALL ALTHOUGH not enjoying a highly successful season from the percentage point of - - view, the 1937 baseball team exliibited a better brand of ball than ever before. The team ended with three victories and one defeat. The pitching was far superior to that of last year, with Thompson, Pfeiffer and Paine doing the hurling; but weak stick-work on the part of their teammates caused defeat in many a game that should have been a victory. The team was considerably weakened at the outset by the loss of " Ears " Totman, first-sacker, who was ill throughout the season, until " Tut " Russell proved himself a capable substitute. The opener was dropped to Trinity, 15-2, but the Academy club did not look as bad as the score would indicate. Cold weather and poor support helped " Moose " Thompson not at all. In a two-game series with Norwich the Cadets lost the first game 11 3 but came back to take the second 5-3 through the steady pitching of Pfeiffer and heavy hitting of Morrell and Whalen. Worcester took the next game with a close 3-2. Paine hurled a beautiful six-hit game, but a bad first inning led to defeat. Following this game the Cadets de- feated Clark 3-1, with Thompson on the mound. A home run by Captain Larry Davis was the outstanding feature of this game. Next, Boston University came to town. $$$$$$$( $( $$$$$ One down the groove The Academy led 1-0 up to the eighth inning, but after time out for rain dropped the game 5-1. In the next to last game American International defeated the Academy by the score of 10-8. In this game the Cadets got plenty of bmgles for a change, but the pitchers were hit hard, too. The last game, with Wesleyan, was the best of the season. Going into the ninth mning trailing 4-3, the Academy forged ahead 5-3 on a pinch-hit triple by Thompson, and won the game m the tenth Thompson and Whalen led the club on batting with averages of .412 and .400. This season marked the final appearances of Land, Whalen and Davis on the diamond. For three years their hitting and fielding have brought the Academy to victories, and they will be missed. However, with good men remaining rnd new men coming up, a strong team for next year[ seems to be a certainty. The Brain Trusi $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ' ' Cross Country Team 1936 CROSS COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHESTER ' S boys started their season off with a bang by defeating Wor- cester Tech 36-19. The rest of the season was much harder going and the Cadets, although they ran some good races, never did manage to win again. The following week the Cadets invaded the domain of Rhode Island State, but were out- classed by a strong team on the long course at Kingston. " Doc " Buxton, the leading runner of the season, outshone the rest of the field by far in the next meet; but Trinity ran surprisingly well, nosing out two of our men to win 26-27 with some hair-raising finishes with the runners sprinting like dash men. At Amherst, on a cold and rainy Saturday, the Blue and White suffered their third de- feat at the hands of a vastly superior team. The last meet of the season was interesting to watch, if a disappointment. Buxton again proved himself one of New England ' s best, when with a final spnnt he held his lead over the Wesleyan ace and set a new course record of 15:44. His teammates did not provide the necessary support, however, and the final score was 20-35. The season could not be called successful, but credit must be given to the men who " put out " week after week at this grueling sport. The letter men are Captain Chester, McCub bin, Art Pfeiffer, M. A. Allen, and Buxton, captain-elect for next year. The squad promises an improved team and we may expect better scores this fall as the harriers again take to the road. SWIMMING ' T HE old cry for a few more seconds and thirds was heard again this year in the vicinity of ■ - the swimming pool. Prins and Hammond were always good for three or four individual firsts, the divers averaged better than six points a meet, and the medley relay team of Ham- mond, Pnns, and Schrader was good enough to better the New England Intercollegiate record unoiEcially by six-tenths of a second in the last meet of the season. Lack of second places to back up this good work and a shortage of talent, or brswo, in the distance, the breast stroke, and the four-hundred-yard relay prevented a more successful season. The first two meets were lost by close scores to Wesleyan and Trinity, both being de- cided by the last race. The team lost to Massachusetts State by a bigger score, but there were many exciting races swum. Worcester Tech was the first team to bow down before the Academy. That day Cap- tain Prins and his boys really got down to work and brought home the bacon to the tune of 60-17. The closest meet of the season was against Boston University. The Cadets took the last race, to score a 39-38 victory. At Storrs the swimmers lost their last meet by a close score. The loss of Captain Pnns will be a severe handicap next year, but the underclass ma- terial looks good and a good season should be in store for the tank-men. As long as they hive coaches like Mr. Erickson and Mr. Aguiar to spur them on, to correct their faults, and to develop their latent ability ( if any), they cannot help but come through for good old C. G. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ mi H n H OjjL f ' jEm ! im m S y ' i yiii ! H Hy n|K r% f 1 F J IP ' l y i£y k 5r A [ vKJBl RIFLE UNDER the supervision of Lieutenant Commander Wood and the able direction of Chief Boatswain ' s Mate Alligood the Cadet ntlemen continued their short but rapid rise in the New England Intercollegiate Ritle Association with nine victories and five defeats. Houtsma chalked up the outstanding record for the season, firing an average of 271.8. Close behind were the six other letter men, McCuhbm, Captain Lambert, Howarth, Clary, Cornish, and Lewis. Five of the meets were shoulder to shoulder, and of these the Cadet sharpshooters won three. What Coach Alligood terms the " money shakes " were much less in evidence than in the past, for only one of the scores might be called low. The Intercollegiate shoulder-to-shoulder meet, in which New England teams fired at New Haven, was the biggest and most nerve-racking event of the season. When the final checkup was made in Washington the Cadets emerged but two points lower than N. Y. U., whose team fired a 1344 to win the New England championship. The Academy ' s nation- wide standing was tenth. Houtsma drew individual honors for the day with the New England high of 280, which score was excelled by but two Navy men in the entire country. Next year the squad will miss Captain Lambert, but as he is the only member of the team being grad uated the prospects are excellent for the Academy to shoot its way to a new high. ■ OOK FIVE o eTiyiTi£5 iLL work and no play . . . " Rather than run the risk of making Cadets any duller than necessary, various activ ities are available for those who insist on having something to do with their daily ten minutes of spare time. ! r Tide Rips ' " piDE RIPS IS a perfect name for this hook. Anyone who has had anything to do with - - It can aver that the turmoil and rough, choppy situation that occurs when the tide meets an ocean current and causes a rip is the best description of the state of atfairs during the entire time of preparation of the book. The editorial hair torn out should have been enough to stuff four old-fashioned mat- tresses, but fortunately most of the staff were already bald, so we were spared the labor of sweeping up the hair. $$$$$$$$$$$$ tV v- -viril MES McInTOSH Adi ' ertLsmg Manager Manager Usually at this point it is considered necessary for the staff to make a few well-phrased remarks about the amount of work they have done, the liberties they have lost and the seniority they have sacrificed. All of that is true, of course, but anyone who was " easy " enough to be roped in to serve on the staff deserved nothing better. Now is the logical time for a few modest remarks to the effect that we hope you ' ll like this Tide Rips — but upon leafing through this super-book we are faced with the conclusion that you can ' t help but like it. It ' s colossal, it ' s gigantic, it ' s epic, it ' s — well, it ' s fan, anyway. But thank God it ' s finished!!! Staff, Tide Rips 1937 t $$$ 5 $yp$$$ S $ V The Foretop XTEITHER Pulitzer Prues nor Brookings Institution criticisms could add to or detract - ' - from the development of the Foretop. The paper saw its beginning in 1932 with much splattering of mimeograph ink and with much valiant effort on the part of the scuttlebutt artists (commonly known as editors). The " scandal sheet, " as it was popularly called, was condemned by the persecuted, tolerated by the indifferent, and supported by a handful. But the Foretop soon became an establishment because, like Gypsy Rose Lee, it revealed all. During the past year the Foretop continued its gradual development until it attained its present form. Unusually great interest was shown in the sheet, as is evidenced by a large staff of eager workers. Early in the year the staff was reorganized into departments, a metamorphosis which would have cheered the heart of any efficiency expert. Financial disturbances filtered away with the birth of an advertising department, and with monetary assistance by Tide Rips. Many new features were added this year, and several six- and eight ' page editions appeared. In spite of deficiencies in time, money, and literary technique, the Foretop has filled a real need at the Academy, furnished fun to readers, and given no small pleasure to those who donated their spare time and thought to it. Running Light Stjtf The Running Light ' I ' HE R!i?nn7ig Light has become an Academy tradition of great value, not only as a - guide and source of general information for the incoming class, but as a constant reminder to all classes of the purposes, history, and traditions of the Academy and the Service. The staff is composed of an editor from the second class and assistants from the third and fourth classes. The contents range from a schedule of athletic events for the year to a dissertation upon military courtesy. The sections concerning the customs of the Academy and the " Swab Rules " are of vital interest to the new Cadet, and the Swab who adheres to the rules established by the Running Light finds his path considerably less rocky. onogram Club Monogram Club " K TOW that our Academy has become a virtual college this past year, the Monogram - ' - Club fulfills our need for a fraternity — of a sort. All men who earn a letter in varsity athletics immediately and automatically acquire membership in the Monogram Club. This is a theoretical organization in which there is no demarcation between classes and no " rates. " All hands are united in a common sports- manship, founded on the gridiron, the diamond, the court or the squared-circle. In a military school, where distinctions between classes do exist, it is essential to have some moments of unrestraint, and through athletics we find this opportunity. Every spring the Monogram Club has a banquet during which the " old Grads " can indulge in reminiscences about past victories, the graduating men can say farewell to Academy athletics, and everyone can get a good meal. g t t (j $q ( $$ i Orchestra ' I ' HE Corps this year has been noteworthy tor the many Fred Astaires found m its - midst — a situation for which the Cadet Orchestra is largely responsible. Who could listen to our fourteen bandmasters without experiencing a tingling of the spine, a lightening of heretofore leaden feet, and the approach of a dancing mood? It is small wonder that a Cadet ' s drag always makes sure that the Admirals are supplying the rhythm before she accepts his invitation to a hop. What ' s a quartette do? Sing together. What do bells do? Ring together. What do bees do? Sting together. What do the Admirals do? They swing together. And to make sure that they always do it together and not separately, Young stands in front with a stick and exhorts the boys to " give. " Variety was supplied during the dances by a Cadet Trio — Holt, Davis and Wayne — who could not resist leaving their dates and murmuring into the microphone several times during the evening. $$${ $$$$$$$$( $(1 Dance Committee Dance Committee " Y THAT a Dance Committee! Never have a dance when we want it. Music not so ' ' good. Terrible refreshments. " And so forth. This is the sum of the thanks received by the Dance Committee for tearing around Hke mad-men, five minutes before a dance, finishing tasks that no one ever seems to think of until the last minute. " No corsage for Mrs. Zilch, Lieutenant and Mrs. Gump were not invited, the receiving line has not been called, the orchestra will be late, and the decorations are falling. Otherwise everything is under control. " Dance Committee is their official name, but " Royal Sack-Holders " is perhaps a title which IS more appropriate m many ways. Some people want programs — some don ' t; some want an outside orchestra — others won ' t spend the money. They cannot please one hundred and twenty Kaydets, so they suit themselves and hope that the majority will be satisfied. They don ' t get any thanks — and comments such as " What cheap programs. The band was terrible. The free corsage I got for being in the receiving line was awful, " cut them to the quick, and hurt their feelings. Well, war isn ' t so bad, hut being on the Dance Committee is Hell. J ' ' mm mm :r.:.:.n tttt. ' Glee Club ' " PHE Glee Club is the activity in which the fourth class is pre-eminent. Each spring - when the group is formed, a few silver-throated upperclassmen venture forth in search of harmony; but the rank and file consist principally of " Swabs " — by popular demand. After a few days of rehearsals, held during moments forcibly taken from an already full schedule, the choristers bring forth surprisingly good melodies with which they favor the rest of the world on rare occasions. At the annual Easter Sunrise Service, held outdoors at daybreak, the Glee Club sings an anthem. Later in the year, during Grad Week, the Glee Club sings hymns at the Bacca- laureate Service. None of us — graduate or swab — will forget the moving strains of " God Be With You Till We Meet Again, " as brought to us by our Glee Club at this service each year. $$$$$$$$$ ' $$$$$$ it 1 mf ' Bugle Corps The Buglers TN 1Q32 an attempt was made to create a Cadet Bugle Corps. It failed, largely because of - ■ lack of time for organijed practice, and also because examinations have a peculiar habit of decimating the ranks of Cadets, especially of the lower classes. However, the few re mainmg stalwart fellows " carry on " as our Buglers. Buglers usually are chosen from the third and fourth classes. Upon the entrance of a class, the senior upperclass bugler makes a roundup of promising candidates and instructs them in preparing for regular duty, which consists of standing a watch, one day at a time, at weekly intervals. While on watch the bugler is responsible for all routine calls, and although he is the object of much imaginary hatred at reveille, if it were not for his warning " first call " five minutes before every formation, the demerit sheets would be much longer than usual. Certain advantages are enjoyed by the Buglers. They do not stand guard with their squads, and are excused from morning exercise when on watch. Also, all Buglers are privileged (for $2.50) to wear a gold bugle-insignia on their sleeves! fSiX i ■ !

ALGIE:U.5 ARAB QJAaT-fcR, ALGIERS AND CONSTANTINOPLE Shoving off from the Academy early in June, we began our first Cruise. A trip to New York to see the Fleet Review, and then to Quantico for ten days on the ritle and pistol ranges were preliminaries which ended as the two white ships moved out to sea one night in the face of a howling gale. The fourteenth day out saw us entering Algiers, Algeria, m French territory, with its quaint mysterious native quarter, filled with strange sights, sounds and smells — especially smells. It would have been interesting even if it hadn ' t been the first foreign port. Istanbul, the gateway to the Orient, was full of surprises. The modern Western dress of the inhabitants and the street cars and taxis contrasted oddly with the old palaces of the Sultans and the Muezzins " calls to prayer. The treasures of the Seraglio Palace amazed everyone, but the chief item of interest to the weary Cadets was the Sultan ' s bed, the largest in the world. We weighed anchor, and after a run up the Bosporus to the Black Sea, we turned about and headed for Greece, WAXetl f-UONT 5T.

Closer views were obtained on one of the most interesting tours of the Cruise, with the Cadets wandering among the ancient ruins of the magnificent Parthenon, the Temple of Jupiter and other famous relics of the Golden Age of Greece. The museum, with its friezes, sculptures and bronze statues and weapons was another high spot. The very low prices prevailing in Greece and the enthusiastic reception given the Cadets by the Athenians combined to make Athens one of the best ports. Food was especially cheap, and indulging in seven-course dinners with all the trimmings, including wine, for fifty cents, was a luxury indulged in and greatly appreciated by the perpetually hungry Cadets, offering as it did a change from the regular food aboard ship. After five happy days we hauled up the hook, and were off for Naples.

The Italians were extremely hospitable, and as guests of the Royal Navy the Cadets were taken on a tour of the City, ending with a run along the famous Amalfi drive. Pompeii and the ancient ruins and well-preserved houses came in for their share of attention, too, and a few of the hardier lads made the trip to the top of Vesuvius. The trip to Rome was next m order, with visits to the Catacombs, the Coliseum and several of the more famous churches on the first day, and more sightseeing on the second day, ending with an audience with the Pope. When we returned to Naples the ships went out to the famous Isle of Capri for a day and night. A dance on board with a romantic moon rising over the island was cut short at midnight, as we " sailed with the tide " m the morning. jr- ' i » " COU56UM -I tm 5T.

The Midshipmen ' s Practice Squadron had been in nearby Nice only a few weeks before and a number of unfortunate encounters between American sailors and French townspeople had occurred, and " les Americains " were not particularly popular. However, everyone had a good time. A trip along the lower Corniche Road to Monaco to see the world-famous Monte Carlo and its Casino was a grand experience. The guides pointed out the place in the gardens of the Casino where ruined gamblers commit suicide ! The beaches, the gay cafes, and the never ' dull Promenade des Anglais kept the days passing rapidly, and one tine day the Cadets found themselves on the way to " Gib. " The awe-inspiring rock with its rumored great concealed batteries and its old surround ' ing bastions and walls was interesting, but the town of Gibralter was merely a place to buy things. At last the day came when we started home, and we said " Good-by " and steamed through the Straits, headed westward for New London Harbor. GibQALTAR, 195 EDINBURGH AND COPENHAGEN After ;i South American cruise in 1935, which the Class of 1937 did not make, the ports of Northern Europe were due for a visit in 1936. An uneventful passage through the fogs of the North Atlantic brought the Practice Squadron into the harbor of Edinburgh. The Highland regiments and their bands stationed there let everyone know that he really was in Bonny Scotland. A trip to Loch Katrine and the surrounding country, setting for the " Lady of the Lake " , gave the Cadets a view of the Scottish mountains, lakes and heather. A short trip through the North Sea brought us to Copenhagen, whose beautiful water- front, situated in the midst of a park, was a welcome change. The inevitable tour took us to the old palaces of the Danish kings and to Elsinore, scene of " Hamlet. " The inspection trip to the Tuborg Brew ery was probably the most popular event of the cruise, however, entailing as it did much free beer. It was with great regret that we left the beautiful girls and friendly people of the City of the Danes. THt PALACt- tL5INOCt ROYAL CWAPtL $ m B hnsleig 3 p _ Y M H ' 1 V t»« , HAMBURG R. Q.

The city officials and the naval representatives were very kind and hospitable, and tea dances, receptions and tours made the days pass quickly. Among the points of interest were the far-famed Hagenbeck Zoo, one of the most com- plete in the world, and the San Pauli, the Coney Island of Hamburg. It was to the latter that the Cadets repaired every night they were ashore. A two-day trip to Berlin was the next event scheduled. A tour was taken to Potsdam and the palace of the former Emperor, and to " Sans Souci " , Frederick the Great ' s beautiful little palace, on one day, and the other day was devoted to sightseeing about Berlin proper, ending with a round of the various night clubs of the city. The return to Hamburg was a letdown after the gayety of Berlin, but it was with regret that the moorings were cast off and we got under way for France. .Ml « .

While in the city, the Cadets were given the opportunity of going through the shipyard of Normand and Son, famous French ship builders and boilermakers, and the inspection tour proved to be of great pro- fessional interest. A tea dance given by the Naval Commandant of the Port and an all-night dance at the Yacht Club were high points m the social life of the cruise. But there still remained one experience — the trip to Pans. Everyone on the ship had looked forward to this, and at last the Cadets found themselves walking down the Champs Elysees and visiting the cafes of Montmartre. The tours made during the two days, to Versailles, the tomb of Napoleon, Notre Dame Cathedral and other points, were tiring, but not tiring enough to keep the Cadets from staying out all night, at the Folies Bergere, the Bal Tabarin and various other establishments. And so back to Havre and away for Madeira. WINDMILL SPAIN The Cayuga was destined never to reach her original destination on this last cruise. A radio message during the mid ' watch on July 24 ordered the ship to change her course and proceed to San Sebastian, Spain, to pick up American and other refugees from the Spanish Civil War. After getting in touch with Ambassador Bowers, the ship steamed up and down the coast between San Sebastian and Fuentarrabia, in Spam, and St. Jean de Lun, m French territory, rescuing dozens of non-combatant foreigners. On July 30th, the Cadets were transferred to the battleship Wyoimng, which, with the Ol{ldhoma and Ar ajisai, had been carrying the Midshipmen on their practice cruise and were then in Bilbao. Leaving the Oi{lahoma behind, the " Wyo " and the " Arkie " began the long voyage home. Good weather and few watches and the friendUness of the Midshipmen made the trip home a pleasure. The ships finally steamed into Norfolk and the Cadets were transferred to the Sebago, which brought them to Cape May, where small arms practice was held. Short Range Battle Practice was soon over, and we thankfully steamed up to the Acad- emy dock — ready for leave. f=AI WeLL ' CAYUGA HOWDY WYOMINGr $$ c ; $$( ( i ( ( ; II OOK SEVEX SPlJfJD I T LL the poor jokes, the good car- toons and the feeble humor of the Cadet Corps put into a convenient place, so that It can be destroyed easily.
