These thoughts will penetrate through years to come. through memories grown dim, and thereby gladden the hearts of those who once lived its misery and its glory. ' m J ' -r I TO THE CORPS OF CADETS OF THE COAST GUARD ACADEMY: This is an individual message to each one of you. You can take pride in the glorious record of the Coast Guard, but let it also be a challenge to you personally to give it new luster. You can do that by courage, by initiative, by constant alert- ness, and above all by a dominating purpose to do a good job for the Country which has honored you with selection for great responsibility. 1 hope for you that you will always seek the lasting satisfaction that comes from good service well per- formed, with humility and sincerity, and not for the sake of momentary praise.

A well- groomed appearance, and a countenance unruffled by either the North Sea or the fluttering of feminine hearts (though occa- sionally clouded by interclass basketball), match his piercing eyes which see equally well the dust on a chiffonier top as the elu- sive black bulls through gun telescopes or from behind a Springfield rifle. Eddie is the song and dance man of the class. His bursts of harmony, accompanied by bang- ing of ash trays or stomping of feet or glasses, never fail to lighten even the gloomiest heart and set the bluenoses of New England tingling to the rhythm of Dixieland. We will always remember his question on twins, as well as his efforts to produce a beautiful class ring. Always ready to share his toothpaste or ciga- rettes, we have found him an ideal class- mate. May our paths cross again soon, Eddie.

Portsmouth, Virqinia a ' L ' DOC BUXTON joined the class al- ready a veteran of the Academy and be- came a constant aid in matters of prece- dent. An unassuming personality, Doc soon gained fame with his homely philos- ophy and unique viewpoints, his remarks having played a prominent part in class arguments. A rabid home-town booster, a native of New London, Doc firmly be- lieves that this is the Eden of the universe. " What have you got that we haven ' t got better right here! " As an ardent student in the physiology course he was soon dubbed " Doc, " and we always love to run him about this great interest of his. He plays as he works for we often see him dashing out of the gate on the first liberty party with his books under one arm and his typewriter and camera under the other. Sole winner at the ' 37 Syracuse fights, cross-country standout, a purity leaguer, a family man, and a fellow with virtuous principles — we all like Doc.

Jug Butt, too, is outstanding. From deep down in the Southland he migrated to Yankee country. " Clahk, suh, Texas, suh! " He put a musical note into our existence — like a bass drum. The most military man in the Corps, " sho nuf! " When we would all gather ' round for a " bull session " Ben- jamin Palmer invariably would be the one to say the wrong thing, to our amuse- ment and his chagrin. Before many months had passed at the Academy he became famous for his lack of cigarettes and shaving cream. We fondly recall his militarism, his social conquests, his dic- tatorship on the Dance Committee, his drawing re-exam, his Southern drawl, his embarrassment as the victim of our jokes, and his role of " Stooge, " Headquarters, Corps of Cadets. But B. P. survived them all, nobly and sincerely. A good class- mate, a fine friend, and a true gentleman. Dance Committee 1; " E " Gun; Gun Captain 2 c; Battalion Adjutant. BENJAMIN PALMER CLARK Dallas, Texas! vV HEN the Engels barged in on the Academy, pandemonium broke loose. Oiiicers, first class, classmates, and even local girls were perturbed by their strik- ing likeness. But A. B. has a mole — that ' s how we told them apart, some of the officers never have. Art was already well grounded in seamanship when he arrived, having been no less than ace instructor of the Grand Rapids ' Sea Scouts. He spent his first year doing Mike and Ike skits for droll upperclassmen. Art has concentrated on socials and sports, and sometimes the socials have interfered — as the time he turned up for a basketball game tuned up for a dance. Experimentally minded, Art made history with an ammeter in " juice, " and made romance in rumble seats and foreign ports. He passes equally well in studies and on the football field. Wherever he goes Art will make an interesting ship- mate. Class Master-at-Arms 1; Football 4, 3. 2, 1; Basketball 4, 3, 2, 1; Mono- gram Club. ARTHUR BRIGHT ENGEL Grand Rapids, Michigan k Ben M. lEET the other Engel twin — the one without the mole, and staunch second member of the famous Leising-Engel com- bination. Ben was the " Ike " of the Swab Year Mike and Ike skit, and was forced to resort to the indignity of combing his hair on the other side so that dull upper- classmen could tell our twins apart. A socialite and an athlete, he also belongs to the savoir class. Not as easy going as his brother, Ben has often been accused of being very regulation. We easily recall his sweet blush and his way with the women, his hesitancy to ask questions in the classroom, his ready smile, and his 95-yard run in the ' 37 Norwich football game. He is outstanding as a 4-year col- lege man (Conn College), as member of the purity league, as well as Sammy ' s A.C. Ben, too, will easily find his place in the Service and will make an interesting shipmate.

With his pipe in his pocket, and an inordinate love of life in his soul, he joined us as a Swob and throughout four long years he has re- mained probably the most supremely contented man in the class. " I ' ve got my pipe, a roof over my head, three square meals a day — what more could I want — and 1 can even get a date now and then when 1 want one. " His humble psychology was shaken a while back, but Wednes- day liberties saved the day and kept Dutch happy. Dutch is a member of that famous Washington ' s birthday quartet of ' 36. Among characteristic class poses Dutch shines prominently in a pair of dun- garees with a tool of some sort in his hand, or sitting on the deck of the Chase calmly weaving belts and eternally smok- ing that pipe.

CORNELIUS GARRET Fair Lawn, New Jersey NEl Lie O, ' UR " Little Nell " brought his store of experience and versatility from the shores of Lake Erie to the Academy, where he has since made good use of them. The gleam in his eyes invites both good and mischief. He was dubbed " Nellie " as the result of our Thanksgiving play, and he is really quite the ladies ' man. In his third class year French nearly got him, but George has been a consistently good scholar and rates the navigation prize. Although not a varsity man, he is a good athlete. Charter member of Sammy ' s A.C., president of the Fifty Club, oldest mem- ber of his class, a keen eye for money matters, and the assurance and ease of an old campaigner, Nellie has been a swell classmate. His sharp banter and cool criti- cism were only stilled by the foam on the crest of a wave. A new monicker of " Zam- sky " arrived with his astute management of " Tide Rips " photography. To wit, George has what it takes.

Soon he had earned, and has since kept intact, a reputation that gave him the name " Hon- est John. " Through four years we have found him a ready and able source of aid or information on all manner of subjects, and he even pops out (among other things) with the page and line of a refer- ence, " Well, sir, on page 511, the third line of the second paragraph covers that item ... " John has also won quite a reputation as a wow with the ladies, though no evidence can be found to sup- port any ideas of a permanent attach- ment along these lines. His great social fame, however, lies in his unique dancing. A charter member of the purity league, a paragon of virtue, and a happy, smiling Southerner, John is always a welcome addition to any group.

JOHN DALE HUDGENS Theodore, Alabama ' JlM J, ' IMMY ' S conquests began with his cheerful smile and a few brass buttons — he was quite a gay dog with the ladies for several years. But times changed, and be- fore the sands ran out Jimmy had become the other half of the famous Murati- Hyslop combination from seven to ten Sunday nights. However, we attribute our hero ' s fickleness among local talent to Washington ties. Our love for our Country was increased immeasurably by Jimmy ' s intriguing stories of the domgs at the Na- tion ' s capital, only to be outdone by his genial hospitality during stop-overs on leave. Not only a fun loving and a good classmate, our Jim is a hard worker — at things he likes. Unfortunately he doesn ' t seem to like to study. But at things such as reading, sleeping, managing football, or at writing for " Foretop, " he has been found almost too enthusiastic! We have found Jim always willing to help in our mischief, our work, or our play.

" JAMES ANDERSON Silver Spring, Maryland [ Uki T, HE Duke — an " old time " sailor from the merchant fleet — is a man of the sea, and the longer he stays at sea the longer he ' ll live. The only practical musician in the class, he has earned fame for his " melo- dorous " tunes and his baton swinging, but his real right to glory lies in his ability to handle a gas buggy. When Bruce and the road turn the same way it is a coinci- dence, and if gates aren ' t kept open let their owners beware — remember Fort Trumbull? Duke is a rabid reader and though studies sometimes interfered with his magazines he has been able to pass them with a minimum of effort. He still owes the railroad company the price of a window for one very memorable Christ- mas leave and he owes us all apologies for those foul-smelling cruise cigarettes, but, on the other hand, we ' ve always found him a pretty swell person and will be glad when our paths cross again.

EDWIN BRUCE 11 Elizabeth, New Ters H ANk Ol ' LD HANK, our Romantic Idealist, who came equipped with a full set of stepping- stones to Heaven. When there are little items like juice experiments to be done he grits his teeth and digs in, and when " a feller needs a friend " Henry is the bene- factor of the underdog, but he is far from a dull boy — he plays as hard as he works. He is the most sincerely gallant gentle- man in the class, verily the man among us who would conceivably drape his cape over a wet gutter. And sometimes, soy once in a blue moon, he has been known to be gay and lighthearted and just plain silly. But we love him, even the most cyni- cal of us, and respect his belief in the goodness of the world. Incidently, you can easily recognize this Flying Dutchman by that bad-boy cowlick, propped up like an Indian feather and getting a little lone- some on its roost. Class President 4; Secretary A.

Miami, Floridai LOv Er T HIRD member of the Engel-Leising combination, Lover is a gift to the Acad- emy from Ohio. A real giant in the social whirl, silent partner on the dance com- mittee, and post card sender extraordi- nary, he owes his fame equally to sports and society. " Good Time Charlie " is a favorite nickname, but " The Late Lover Leising " is perhaps a better ( " Hold that ship fellows while 1 make a phone call " — and the last we saw of Lover as the ex- cursion boat shoved off were his feet stick- ing out of the bottom of the Swedish phone booth). Staunch member of Sammy ' s A.C., he came in for a lot of grief when Sam chose him as our spokes- man — " This terrible noise; if you cannot behave yourselves I am sorry for it. " A big man at the Academy, he should do big things in the Service. Football 4, 3, 2, 1; Basketball 4, 3, 2, 1, Captain 1; Dance Committee 3, 2, 1; Monogram Club. I CHARLES EUGENE LE] Lorain, Ohio I N SPITE of a phenomenal ability to say- nothing, Don ' s wavy hair and cheerful attitude have won many a maid. Few of the fair sex can resist him as his long line of conguests from B.A. to Oslo prove. Per- haps his success along these lines is but another example of his stoicism, since lit- tle evidence can be found to show that such attentions mean even a little to this Nordic Casanova. Mention of his lineage brings to mind the only incident casting doubt on his nationality — remember the time when, after six days of brilliant con- versation (?) (well anyhow he got along) in Oslo, Don was stumped when he wanted to ask for a barber shop in Stock- holm? In Academy life the Swede has carved a worthy spot for himself in ath- letics, drill, and social affairs. The old adage " still waters run deep " is exempli- fied in Don — he runs deep in our respect and real liking, and of him we say " Make good — shucks — he is good.

DONALD MARCUS MORELL Grandy, Minnesota I, Geo Rge r RENCH-IRISH ancestry produced an en- viable combination in George, one of the blithest spirits we have ever met and a humorist of note. Well liked for his inimi- table self, he is also famous for his char- acterizations of others — especially his " Doc Sody. " He is always ready for any situation and has held for four years a position among the top savoirs of the class. He has managed to be socially active and yet retain a financial balance, an almost unparalleled record — in fact we can remember only once when he was in the red. Once a " man about town " he has degenerated into the two-a-day class or the " seven o ' clockers " — second member of the well-known Hyslop-Murati crowd — possibly safety in numbers might be a motive. Prominent in the ranks of the A.C. and a convivial addition to any group, George will be missed by all. Academic Star 4; Class Treasurer 4; Assistant Treasurer A. A. 3; " E " Gun; Treasurer A.

GEORGE THOMAS Buffalo, New Yo Art A, ,RT or " Approximate " Pfeiffer has been working that broken slide rule for the post four years with good results — such good results his class standing can well testify. For two years as number one Art set a wicked pace, but his nature led him into bypaths of light literature and heavy sleep — lately he has let his naturally keen intellect carry him along and we still find trouble keeping up, though we are glad to have him around when a knotty prob- lem arises. A constant commuter to Nor- wich, it appears from this angle that the " Joisey Keed " will get his silverware in a hurry — it was two years, then one year, then six months and now (February) four weeks — you can guess the outcome. Art is the most " positive " man in the class, knows what he wants and how to get it and in everything he does the best wishes of the class go with him.

His ready smile and overflow- ing chatter have not only become a tradi- tion at the Academy, but have buffaloed many a member of the fair sex into half- believing all his promises; though they cannot help but realize that Johnny ' s in- terests change with the seasons. His " You know Wife, I ' m getting a little love interest again " was always a sign that winter was on the wane and spring was just around the corner. An ex-Navy man, John is fa- mous for his washroom " Laundry. " Radio, one of John ' s passions, led him into trou- ble with a record of losing one radio a week for two consecutive weeks.

PRITCHAR Burbank, Califor: 1 - k I N THE latter part of the year 1914, there was born in " ye merrie olde England " a lad who was destined to return in 1937 and dazzle his kinfolk with his brass but- tons. In the advanced stages of childhood he immigrated to America where he grew into the splendid example of the " Sav- age " which he has been called. His sense of humor is in the traditional English style, he is a good cook upon occasion, can sew too, and makes an excellent comrade. He was endowed with expressive brown eyes, which are soulful when he is in love and cloudy when he sulks, and an exem- plary character, in fact his only fault is that he is faultless, being a wonderful ex- ample for the lazy and impractical — though to tell the truth we sometimes get awfully weary of his eternal and inten- sive industry. We ' ve found him apt along other lines than work (as his whirlwind courtship indicates) and we can only pre- dict success for this bundle of energy.

THOMAS REECE SARGENT, III Niantic, Connecticut I NTRODUCING " Hot Dope " Shoey; not a pundit nor a second Walter Winchell, but nevertheless, a newsgatherer of the first water. The change from sunny California to dreary New London did not dampen Shoey ' s outlook on life one bit. An old col- lege man and a great personality, he took in everything about the Academy, includ- ing the local femmes, at a glance. Among his famous sayings are: " My engineering and juice experiments for next week are finished and I ' ve done my steam and ordnance for Friday, nothing else to do; guess I ' ll read. — Say, have you heard the latest? — No mail for you today, Henry, but John, you have a letter from your sis- ter in Mobile. " Besides being a profuse reader (especially and unfailingly, the New York " Times " ), he has exhibited con- siderable prowess at swimming the breaststroke. Good natured, easy going and sociable, Shoey has always been a favorite among us, and will be one of our first ex-bachelors.

Coronado, California T HIS handsome young fellow, iamed for his cynicism and slightly stale jokes, is fa- miliarly known as " The Rat. " The name, originating from his initials, has become a byword with the underclass, whom this regulation cadet has striven to keep on the straight and narrow. At times almost deserving the title " Red Mike, " Ray has spent considerable time lately penning sweet missives, though his status is still strongly on the bachelor side. We know he has worked diligently and carefully for four years, we know he has kept that grin plastered on his pan, and we know he can beat the French (or Scotch) for saving — what we don ' t know is how he does it. An ardent patriot, Ray should go far in the service of his country — if Washington doesn ' t have too many birthdays.

" Four years a varsity man in three sports and the backbone of many inter- class teams, Bob really needs no introduc- tion as his place in the class and in the Academy is well evidenced on many other pages of this, our eulogy of ' 38. Easily the most athletic member of the class. Stumpy can also lay claim to a prominent social position. The life of the rec room and many a brawl — er — ball, his infectious gayety and ready wit have added greatly to all our affairs and also made him the pet of the officers ' wives. Generous to a fault, his happy-go-lucky attitude has taken much of the sting out of situations into which his quick temper and sharp tongue have led him. Where the going is roughest there you ' ll always find Butch — a little rougher than the go- ing, and our best wishes go with him.

Though quiet and conservative, he has had his moments. Jim blew his way to unheralded fame as a Swab with his unique bugling, and throughout his four years of comradeship he has impressed us unforgetably with his forgetfulness. His classic occurred on a cruise when he re- lieved the watch as O.D. — " Who ' s the new O.D.? " In his last yea r he blasted his way to more lasting glory with a pair of tal- ented fists. We have found Big Jim a large, quiet, easy-going lad with an unruffled composure and an uncanny conception of right and wrong. Jim spends much of his time with his thoughts, and those of us who have been lucky enough to pene- trate that reverie have discovered inspir- ing tales of farm life back in Iowa and the echoes of a wholesome philosophy. What- ever his faults, and though a paradox in many ways. Big Jim is a fine friend and an ideal companion.

JAMES BAIRD WEJ Des Moines, Ioa " T, HERE ' S something outstanding about that man " ceems to fit " Meatnose " in sev- eral ways, including that famous physiog- nomy. He is famed for his Christmas card design which caused more discussion than a painting by Rembrandt, at least in Academy circles, but he only sits back and smiles when the matter is mentioned for he knows how good it is. A great con- noisseur of foods, his presence on the mess committee resulted in numerous innova- tions, none of them permanent. Of course Yankee cooks can ' t handle good old Southern dishes — and neither could the cadets. Smiling, happy, good-natured Tex is the delight of hostesses, and when he and " Stumpy " Waldron do the Tango with much fervor the rec room is held spellbound by their rythmic capers. Natu- rally a ladies man with that soft Southern line and that toothpaste smile, not to mention his classic features, he has been a consistent snake for our full four years.

Although of an un- assuming nature, he could never success- fully hide his light under a bushel and his hair long ago gave up trying to hide that phenomenal dome; the combination has served to place " Al " conspicuously at the head of the class and at the forepart of all Academy activities. Upon occasion he has taken to the social spotlight in a manner calculated to discourage competition — we will long remember his unique cele- bration of Washington ' s birthday and a ride from Providence that should put Paul Revere or Sheridan to shame. With his record to date and his literary practice in producing this volume Al should have no difficulty in writing his own ticket.

Law enforcement was originally, and 1 ' still remains, the primary function of the Coast ii Guard. Coast Guard officers must perform Boarding Duty in the enforcement of navigation, customs and in- spection, and general laws of the United States, there- fore a knowledge of maritime law, and, in lesser degree, of civil law, is indispensable. The importance of seamanship to the Coast Guard is apparent. The Service is acclaimed through- out the world for their superior handling of small boats. The Cadet is given the general picture of the development of law from antiquity to the modern legal systems. He is then given a special course in all Federal laws which concern the Coast Guard, particularly navigation and customs laws. He next applies himself to the Rules of the Road, to Service Regulations, and to Courts and Boards, and he finally emerges well equipped to perform his duties in the Service. 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. On summer cruises the Cadet ' s duties vary from scraping paint to Officer-of-the-Deck. Ropes, tackle, sailing, painting, and the handling of ships and small boats are all equally important and equally stressed. The Cadet also studies the problems of merchant shipping from all angles. This phase is particularly important and interesting, for here he soon compre- hends the nature and value of the Service to which he will dedicate his life. COMMANDER J, E.

TION THE ultimate success or failure of a officer depends largely upon the proper ap- plication of his knowledge of seamanship and navigation. These two subjects ore closely inter- related, 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 general scope of the Navigation Department covers the theory of navigational instruments and their use in deter- mining the position of a ship at any time and place. Here the Cadet finds ample field to apply his background in mathematics. The motions of the astral and solar bodies are studied. Charts, currents, tides, and navigational theories are mastered. Th e elements of surveying and the use of surveying instruments are also included under this depart- ment. The magnetic compass and compass compensation are analyzed, as well as the theory and construction of the modern gyrocompass. On the cruises the Cadet applies his knowledge in the role of Cadet Navi- gator. He must plot the ship ' s course, determine and plot its position from time to time by means of sights and dead reckoning, take " time ticks " on the ship ' s chronometer, establish compass and gyro errors periodically. In fact, he is required to perform all the duties of a ship ' s navigator. In navigation accuracy is imperative, and the Cadet soon learns, often to his regret, that he must have the correct G.C.T., and that two plus three does not equal six. L. STEINMETZ Academy 1927 LIEUT. COlvIDR, S. P. SWICE- GOOD, JR. Academy 1925 Department Head MECHANICAL Department of Mechanical Engineer- ing combines theoretical and practical work throughout the last two years at the Academy. Mechanical engineering is composed of such sub- jects as materials, thermodynamics, heat engines, boilers, turbines, naval auxiliaries, internal combustion engines, machine shop, drafting, and engineering labo- ratory 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 study, regular cadet engineer- ing watches are stood in the boiler and engine rooms. Notebooks covering the fundamental principles and practical operation and mainte- nance of all machinery must be compiled. Practical work at the Academy begins with mechanical drawing and de- scriptive geometry, and with basic machine-shop courses where the working of metals by means of lathes, milling machines, and other tools is actually performed by each Cadet. E lementary work in the small foundry is also taught, and actual casting is done by the Cadets. The Cadet continues his study of mechanical engineering with a course in materials of construction, wherein he discovers the properties of metals and alloys, and he analyzes their structure and treatment in a fully equipped metallurgical laboratory. COMMANDER G. R. O ' CONNOR Academy 1913 Department Head LIEUT COMDR, L B. OLSON Academy 1918 »» !MMBgay!|ii!HBjy SB a ENGINEERING He next turns his attention to thermo- dynamics, and becomes familiar with the thermal properties of liquids, vapors, and gases. Herein he has his first battle with entropy, and with steam tables. The knowledge gained in this course is fundamental to the study of heat engines, wherein he applies his knowledge to grasp operation of modern steam power plants. A study of boilers, turbines, auxiliaries, and internal com- bustion engines brings his final year to a close. Throughout these ' courses the Cadet is given a thorough understanding of the mainte- nance and operation of marine power plants. Since every line officer now graduating from the Academy must proficient in below-deck as well as above-deck duty, it is essential that he understand fully the theory and operation of all naval machinery. To this end the engineering laboratory course provides practical work in tearing- down and putting-together all types of naval machinery. Precise experi- ments are conducted, and actual conditions of marine plant operation are assimilated. With this groundwork the young officer is well capable of taking over his duties in maintaining the engineering department of Coast Guard vessels at the high degree of efficiency and reliability which is so necessary to the performance of the duties of the Service. be LIEUT. G. F. HICKS Academy 1927 LIEUT. COMDR. K. K. COWART Academy 1926 ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING CLOSELY allied to the Department of Mechanical Engineering is that of Electrical Engineering. Study in both departments is based upon fundamental mathematical and scien- tific subjects. The Electrical Department gives courses in electricity and radio, together with suitable laboratory work. his second class year the Cadet begins his study with the fundamentals of electricity. He next embarks upon the theory of direct current circuits and its application to direct current machinery. The final term includes alternating current cir- cuits, complex numbers, A.C. machinery, and a study of modern electrical power plants. Classroom work is supplemented with practical work in the laboratory on all types of D.C. and A.C. equipment. On the summer cruises further prac- tical work is given by means of detailed studies of the entire ship ' s power plant, and Cadets must stand regular watches in the engine room. 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 Service. Cadets must also become proficient in all types of radio communication, both sending and receiving. To this end Cadets attend " buzzer " drills at special tables in the basement of the Administration Building. Proficiency in engineering is a prerequisite for an officer in the Service, and with the training received at the Academy the young graduate is well equipped to pursue his career. LIEUT. G. A. KNUDSEN Academy 1930 Department Head LIEUT. J. D. HARRINGTON Academy 1930 g?g Wg ORDNANCE and BALLISTICS AS a part of the armed forces of tlie United States, co-operating with the Navy in time of war, the Service must keep abreast of late developments in these sciences so that the guns of the cutters may receive proper care, and so that the Coast Guard will be prepared to oper- ate effectively as a naval unit if the need should arise. With this end in view, the courses in ordnance and ballistics 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 in the Service. Cadets study the construction and operation of all types of small arms, including the pistol, rifle and machine gun. The use of the line-throwing gun is vital to the Coast Guard and Cadets become well grounded in the use of all types, as well as coston signals and flares. The Armory is equipped with all types of guns encountered in the Service, and Cadets become pro- ficient in operating and dismounting each type, and must understand all mechanical features. The course in ballistics is designed to give an under- standing of the uses and limitations of guns, and to make the young officer an efficient gunnery control officer. During the cruises small-arms target practice is held, and Cadets are taught to become expert shots and good future instructors for the crews of their ships. Also during this period, short- and long-range battle practices are held, and Cadets carry out the duties of all persons concerned with the practice, from fire-control officer to the actual guns ' crews. LIEUT, (jg) D. T. ADAMS Academy 1932 LIEUT. COMDR. W. Academy 1925 Department Head R- RICHARDS SCIENCE WITH the single exception of Mathe- matics, Physics is probably the most im- portant science that an engineer of any sort studies in preparation for his professional work. Furnishing, as it does, the groundwork for almost ;ry 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 lie science of Chemistry. Because of its applications in thermo- dynamics, the more practical heat engines, the study of boilers and boiler water, corrosion prevention, electric batteries, and many other subjects in which an officer is vitally interested. Chemistry has a definite place in the Academy curriculum.. Enough Mathematics is covered during the preliminary six-weeks summer term to enable the new Cadet to attack Chemistry at the beginning of the fourth class year. The course extends 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 year. PROFESSOR C. J. BRASEFIELD Rutgers ' 24, Princeton ' 27 Department Head LIEUT. COMDR. G, A, TYLER Academy 1926 autt -Mgmc gm iiLJJL DEPARTMENT Physics, as taught at the Academy, is one oi the most thoroughly covered and, hence, one of the most arduous subjects. A difficult but comprehensive textbook is used, and in the first tv o terms mechanics, properties 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 be difficult to understand. In connection with the classroom work and closely paralleling it, com- prehensive laboratory work is required, and with the splendid equipment with which the Academy is supplied, 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 large library of various authoritative texts to be used for reference is added to from tim.e to time as new developments in science are published. The standing of the Academy ' s courses in Physics is attested to by the results of the yearly examinations which are given to students in colleges over the entire country. Since the Cadets have been taking these examina- tions, they have never failed to place, as a group, in the very highest brackets. LIEUT R. T ALEXANDER Academy 1931 LIEUT.

Man became conscious of the mystery of numbers and very soon had everyone mystified. From Tholes of Miletus to Ein- stein men have fretted and expounded. ■••Z. ' -: :-. Mathematics is essential to the officer. It is the basis of engineering, of ordnance and of navigation. Upon begin- ning 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 me- chanics, and to differential equations. This completes two years. In the final half of his training as navigator and engineer he must con- stantly draw upon his store of mathematical knowledge. In these courses a correct balance of speed and accuracy is required. Although the early work is almost entirely theoretical, problems involving practical usages are chosen as far as possible. Neatness is emphasized, and the use of the " slipstick " is important. Proficiency in mathematics is an indis- pensable asset to every Academy graduate. PROFESSOR C E DIMICK Harvard 1901 Department Head LIEUT. H. ST.

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 practi their respective sports, and all others take part in interclass activities. 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. Those in charge of this department do marvelous work by way of coaching and training, and thus insure healthy Cadets as well as good Academy teams. " 1 tice in H activities. PHARMACIST H K McCLERNON LIEUT. J. S. MERRIMAN, JR. Springfield College 1923 Department Head ' ' DEPARTMENT GENERAL THE curriculum of any technical school tends to have an over-supply of professional subjects with little emphasis being placed on cultural courses such as economics, philosophy, history, and politics. Of late years an effort has been made at the Academy to remedy this defect. The Department of General Studies includes courses in English, Spanish, French, Contemporary Civilization, and Contemporary Problems. The latter two are the subjects recently added to the Academy curriculum. All of the first four mentioned subjects are studied throughout the first two years at the Academy; the last subject. Contemporary Problems, is studied the third year. Contemporary Civilization is a special course arranged by a group of associate college professors for technical schools. It combines the philosophy, economics, religion, politics, and history of the world from ancient times to the present day in a precise and chronological form. Classroom work consists chiefly of open discussions on the reference work assigned. The object of this course is to give the Cadet an objective and cultured viewpoint of world problems and events. The course in Contemporary Problems 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. The study is both interesting and vital, and classroom dis- cussions often take on a heated and lively aspect. PROFESSOR A. A. LAWRENCE Dartmouth ' 27, Harvard ' 29 Department Head LIEUT. S. H. EVANS Academy 1927 - ns:i rj rmm i MMi of STUDIES The courses in English include English composition, both written and oral, current events, logic, and Service customs. A pre- requisite of a good officer is, of course, the use of good English. He must be lucid and correct both in speaking and writing; his orders clear and under- standable, and his written reports both concise and logical. Theme writing or discussion is often a welcome change to a Cadet grown v reary from a maze of figures and technical subjects. 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 entering Cadets are divided into two sections, and for two years the one studies Spanish and the other French. 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. As with the other studies at the Academy, the Cadet finds a mastery of a foreign language an interesting and useful accomplishment on cruises to foreign lands. Many amusing incidents occur, such as approaching a fellow customer in French in a shop where the proprietor speaks only Italian. The Cadet finds many interesting and valuable experiences in these lands which, were it not for his knowledge of French or Spanish, he would never have encountered. INSTRUCTOR G. N. BURON LIEUT. S- F, PORTER Academy 1930 1 MEDICAL THE United States Public Health Service f maintains on the second floor of Hamilton — " Hall a fully equipped and modern hospital, _ wherein all injuries and ailments are dealt with B W " " by a staff of competent doctors and pharmacists. Hki SIl Although small in size, this unit is complete in every respect, with operating room, dispensary. X-ray ap- HjH paratus, dental clinic, isolation rooms, and, in fact, all those adjuncts to the science of medicine and surgery which can be found in the largest hospitals of today. rW It would be difficult to deal adequately with each phase of our equipment in a few words, but whatever the ailments, or however severe the injury, it presents no difficulties to our staff of doctors nor to the equipment. No job is done haphazardly, no cure is left to chance. In a branch of work where the best is a necessity, the Cadets are supplied with the 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 " Goldbrickitis, " a careful watch is kept over the health of all Cadets, and a detailed health report is a funda- mental part of the official record of each Cadet and of every officer of the Service. Once a year the Cadets undergo a thorough physical examina- tion in which no defect passes undetected. Once during the four years of CARL MICHEL Senior Surgeon, U.S.P.HS, University of Illinois 1912 Chief Medical Officer S. P.

In addition to the extensive work of patching and heal- ing, the Medical Department is intrusted with the education of all future officers in personal and community hygiene and First Aid. In his second class year, each Cadet pores over ominous textbooks in physiology in a special course taught by one of the staff of doctors. This course is thorough and brief, and teaches the Cadet the anatomy and physiology of the human body, and the important diseases and injuries, and treatments thereof. 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 officer 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 persistently applied to the medical and dental care of Cadets while they are at the Academy. The arduous cadet life does not permit long illnesses away from studies. It is not difficult to persuade a Cadet that he must " turn in " at the sick bay, but it is hard to keep him there. J. B.

State WITH considerable pride we may point to 1937 as a successful football season for the Academy. A record of three wins three losses and a tie against larger schools with for the most part, larger teams is noth- ing to be ashamed of. The fact that those three wins were 1 lined on a total of twenty points is an indication of the kind of de- fensive Doli the team was playing. Coaches Merriman, Roland, and Richards developed the light material at their disposal to good effect, and Captain Bob Waldron led them on in the Coast Guard ' s familiar role of giant killer with the above-mentioned success. The team was not very fast and it was small — the line averaged about 1 75 and the backfield about 160 — but what it lacked physically it made up for amply in scrappiness, evidenced even in the games wherein the play went against them from the start. On September 25, one of the hottest days of the autumn, the Academy opened its football season against a superior Wesleyan eleven. Wesleyan broke through early in the first quarter A Hyblop Manager Coaches and Trainer 4 i BALL for a score, and twice more during the game. In spite of excel- lent defensive work, espe- cially on Waldron ' s part, and the completion of sev- eral passes by Gorecki, we ended up the day on the wrong end of a 21-0 score. The following week Worcester ' s big red team invaded New London to be met by a transformed Coast Guard eleven. With both teams playing well, Wor- cester opened the scoring in the second quarter with a long pass and a march to the goal, but failed to convert. After the half the Academy took the initiative and outplayed the Engineers for the rest of the game. After two unsuccessful line bucks on the ten-yard line, Art Engel tossed a short pass over the center to Waldron who scored and then converted with a place kick. Growing conservative in the fourth quarter, Academy held their one-point lead to the end of the game. Of Middlebury the less said the better. They looked more like big time than any other team we played, and under other circumstances their offensive would have been beautiful to watch. At times the Academy played good de- fensive ball, but Middlebury kept breaking loose for long gains around end and also scored on a couple of long passes. We don ' t like to remember how often Mid- dlebury scored, but when the final whistle Robert Waldron, Captain The Captain ill- blew the scoreboard read 4 6 to 0. The little Army- Navy game was played at Northfield this year. Starting off strong our team ran through Nor- wich repeatedly, but fum- !es and interceptions halted veral scoring threats. Toward the end of the first quarter Norwich took the offensive and was finally stopped on our ten- yard line. In the second quarter Ben Engel intercepted in our own end zone and made a sensational 85-yard dash down the field only to be downed a little short of success, and there the play died. Late in this quarter a long pass from Art Engel to Crock put the team in a scoring position, and two snappy plays took the ball over for the game ' s only score. A pass for conversion was not completed and the half ended a few plays later. The second half was a series of last-stage defenses for Coast Guard with three four-down battles within our own ten-yard line and one exciting four-down stand on our one-yard line. Although threatening often, Norwich lacked the punch and the game 1- -rMllf M f ™w • ■ ' ip. 1 www If • » ended 6-0 in our favor. Missing both En- gels, the Academy played American Inter- national a very even game, losing out chiefly m weight. Twice within scor- ing distance, we failed puncture their strong defense. A good running attack and stel- lar work on the part of their left- end captain were largely responsible for A.I.U. ' s score in the third quarter. They failed to convert and the game ended at 6-0. Against Massachusetts State weight was against us once more and the loss of Captain Bob Waldron through a knee injury was greatly felt. State carried the game for the first half against a poor Coast Guard defense and scored in the second with a running attack, missing the extra point. The Cadet offensive began to click in the third quarter and a passing attack placed us in a scoring position. Ben Engel ran the ball over for a score and O ' Neill converted with a well-timed place kick. Art Engel stuck to conservative methods for the rest of the game, The Squad Hi maintaining a 7-6 edge for the Acad- emy. In the final game of fvf ' T— yr -. ■w jir - .- . ' ' W ' W " S ' " " W year the Academy 4 .jti , ji i W yl . .Mfl lBlJ B team put on a show that " " ' ■ " " " . .i. -c - jmZ ' W should live long in our sports annals. Connecticut State, having defeated Mid- dlebury 19-6 the previous week, was expected to swamp us, but as always, against the toughest opposition the Academy showed its greatest mettle. Outweighed thirty pounds per man and playing in a sea of mud and a driving rainstorm, the line gave little ground and the backfield and ends made some remarkable plays. Art Engel and Gorecki were able to complete a surprising number of passes to Schroder, Winstead and Crock, and several threatening passes by Conn. State were intercepted for gains. The game was mostly see-sawing back and forth in Coast Guard terri- tory, but seldom behind our twenty-yard line, and fine line work by Masters, Miller and Riedel with either O ' Neill or Kniskern at center aided materially in keeping the score to a 0-0 tie, an achievement as satisfactory as a victory. Summing up a season which in another school might seem only mediocre it should be enough to say that the Corps is well satisfied with the results. It is impossible to compare Academy athletics with any other school in that the possibilities are very limited. With the ma- terial on hand the football team worked wonders and is to be complimented on the most successful season since 1931. Next year the team will feel the loss of several good men, particularly Captain Bob Waldron, three-letterman in foot- ball and elected to the Connecticut All-State team this past year. Other lettermen moving on by graduation are the Engel twins, Leising, and Kniskern, How- ever, next year ' s co-captains Winstead and West will have a good supply of seasoned players to pick from. The lettermen for the past season are: Waldron, A. Engel, B. Engel, Leising, Kniskern, Winstead, West, Schroder, Riedel, Frazer, Miller, McClelland, Gorecki, Crock, O ' Neill, McLendon, Palmon and Alden. Retiring from four years on the managing staff, Hyslop turns over the dirty work to next year ' s chief bag-holder, Charp. Closing the subject of football for the 1937 season we wish succeeding Academy teams as great or greater success than that de- scribed above and we are sure this confidence is well placed. i BOX Game Opponents Academy Toronto 3 5 Yale 5 3 Maryland 4 4 Western Maryland 2 6 Syracuse 5 3 MICKEY McCLERNON can sit back with the feeling of another job well done now that the ' 38 mitt season is past. coached a rather inexperienced team through as suc- cessful, and as tough, a season as the Academy boxers have in many a year.

Dillon depended largely on a left jab, while " Wee Willie " used a hard right with telling effect, flooring his man twice in the third round before Referee Taylor stopped the match to save Dillon. Making his first varsity appearance. Bob (Skeeter) Goehring scored a techni- cal knockout in the second round. This turned out to be the beginning of a string of five consecutive knockouts for Goehring, and he still has another year to go. He is the only southpaw on the team — uses a jolting right hook followed by a deadly left. Rugged Bob Prause was too strong for Toronto ' s Jack Barnes in the 135 pound class bout. Prause went to work at the first bell, crowding his op- ponent with rights and lefts from all J. D. Hudgens, Manager Coach McClernon a ING angles; he hammered away for two rounds and twenty seconds of the third, when the bout was called. Toronto ' s first score came in the 145 pound class, when Ted de Wolfe won the decision over Don Morell. It was Morell ' s first varsity fight, but he looked good and gave de Wolfe plenty trouble. Unfortunately, he broke his thumb sometime during the bout, so was put completely out of action for the remainder of the season. In the 155 pound class, Ralph West scored for the Academy again with a T.K.O., showing ex- ceptional boxing skill combined with a good punch. Harry Frazer clinched the meet for C.G. with his aggressiveness and a stiff righ hand, clearly winning all three rounds. The second bout in the 165 pound class, in which Pigott of Toronto punched out a cool, clean decision over Jim McLaughlin, was the classiest of the evening. The final bout in the 175 pound class also went to Toronto, Joe McClelland dropping a close decision to a shifty southpaw. The boxing team, followed by most of the Corps, made the trip to New Haven for the traditional battle with Yale.. Although we ended on the short end of a 5-3 score, there was considerable doubt on two of the bouts. Bill Morrison lost the first decision to Yale ' s Fasanella after forcing the fight through the entire three rounds. Goehring allowed no room for doubt by scoring a knockout in the second round, evening up the meet. Prause jolted Wright repeatedly with his powerful overhand rights, nearly finishing the bout when he had Wright hanging on in the second round. The decision went to Yale, putting them in front once more. I B Weaver, Captain The Captain . 4 The Coast Guard suffered first T.K.O. of the season when Emmet Fowler was unable finish the third round against Jones. Ralph West was matched with the veteran Ott Miller, losing the decision him after three rounds of fast fisticuffs. Harry Frazer stayed in the win column with a decisive victory over Ed Pollock. The captains of the two teams fought it out in the light-heavyweight vision when Jim Weaver opened his season against s Deering Danielson. It was a thrilling fight, Weaver ■• " " " " " " ' ' SJ trading them with Danielson all the way, but losing nar- 9 rowly to the Yale captain ' s greater experience. Joe McClelland _A,w - moved up to the unlimited class to win for Coast Guard with an undisputed decision over Putnam Lee. After two weeks of rest the Blue and White boxers traveled to College Park to do battle for the first time with the University of Maryland, holders of the Southern Conference championship. A questionable decision went against Bill Morrison in the bantamweight class after he had floored his man in both the first and second rounds. Once again we were relying upon Bob Goehring to even the score, and once again he came through. Behind on points until the end of the second round, he floored his man at the bell; early in the third round he scored again with a left to the body, ending the bout and chalking up another kayo. In the lightweight division. Bob Prause met Benny The Team Alperstein, national intercol- legiate champion. P r a u s e forced the fight, but the referee thought Prause was taking too much punishment in the second round and stopped the bout, much to Prause ' s sur- prise. The remainder of the bouts went the full three rounds to decisions. Fowler was clearly outpointed, but Ralph West came back to decisively win his fight. In the 165 pound class, Frazer fought man- fully to even up the score for C.G., but was unable to take the bout. The score was thus 4-2, assuring Maryland of at least a tie. It was up to Captain Jim Weaver and Joe McClel- land to come through with wins in the last two bouts and save the day. Weaver won easily, skillfully out-boxing his opponent. Mc- Clelland punished Maryland ' s Joe Henderson with stinging left jabs piling up a large margin of points to take the decision. Both of these men put up their best performances to date to pull the Academy out of a hole. Determined not to allow for any possibility of an unfavorable decision. Bill Morrison opened our first meet with Western Maryland by scoring a T.K.O. over Ollie Osteen. Morrison sized up his opponent during the first round and then put on the pressure in the second, flooring Osteen near the end of the round. There was no 125 pound bout, due to an injury to Western Maryland ' s entry, so Goehring moved up to the 135 pound class. He was in top form as The Squad jabs, ■ ' H H usual and connected at the id oi the second to score a kayo. A glancing blow cut Fowler over the left eye early in the 145 pound match, so the bout was con- ceded to Western Maryland on a technical. West, who usually enjoys a slight ad- vantage in height and reach in his class, was finitely belittled by his 6 ' 3 " opponent. Fight- ing cautiously, trying to avoid a very long left. West lost the first round. Taking the aggressive then, he cceeded in getting inside and scored effectively with body blows, winning the last two rounds and the decision, le middleweight match ended with surprising swiftness when Frazer ' s opponent rolled back on the ropes unprotected midway m the first round. His seconds threw in the towel, awarding Frazer the bout. The classiest bout of the evening was the light-heavyweight match between the two captains. " Big Jim " Weaver traded blow for blow with clever Tony Ortenzi, holder of the Eastern Intercollegiate championship in his class. No man could stand up for long under such terrific rights as Ortenzi scored, and the referee fmally stopped the bout with only 12 seconds of the third round remaining, when Weaver was no longer able to defend himself. McClelland gave away weight and height to Joe O ' Leair, the " Primo Camera of college boxing, " in the unlimited class. Forcing the fight from the outset, he punched out a win to close a very successful evening for C.G. The Blue and White ended the season against Syracuse, holders of the 1937 Eastern Intercollegiate championship. Undaunted, however, the Academy men Morrison Goehring Prause Morel A ' X:jCX LJr mMMi opened the evening auspi- ciously as Morrison outpoint- Voight for a decision, and Goeh- ring added another point with a third round kayo over Breckenridge, The next four classes included Syra- cuse ' s heaviest artillery — two intercollegiate champions and a runner-up. Although Prause kept pushing, Captain Fred Zuccaro was able to block Prause ' s right hand, winning the decision nicely. C. C. Morgan, making his first varsity appear- ance, held off champion Johnny Mastrella with a nice hand, but dropped the decision. McLaughlin lost the de- cision to clever Griffiths in the 155 pound class. West went up to 165 to meet Ord Fmk, Olympic team member and twice inter- collegiate champ. He put up a splendid fight, but suffered a cut over the eye in the final round and had to stop. Captain Weaver gained enough margin over " Peewee " Brown in the first two rounds to win the decision. In the final, McClelland seemed to have the edge until he walked squarely into a short right and went down, putting Syracuse on the long end of the score. Lettermen for the year are Weaver, Frazer, Goehring, West, Morrison, Prause, McClelland, McLaughlin, and Fowler. Losing only Weaver by graduation, fight fans are already looking forward to a big season for 1939. Frazer McLaughlin McClelland ' I f K BASKET Game Opp. Aca.

We had a good string of veterans, among them Bob V aldron, Winstead, Tut Russell, the Engel twins, Captain Charlie Leising, and Ing, and there was also a fair show- ing of new talent such as Gorecki, Girdler, Richmond, Rohrkemper, Kincaid and Ayres. All of these men saw action in almost every game, except when they were out because of injuries. In general our handling of the ball was good, but the shooting was unsure, as the relatively lov scores indicate. In the first game of the season the Cadets started slow, permitting Clark to build up a lead which they never lost. Clark had a Pritchard Jr Manager The Coaches BALL fast, straight-shoo ' ing team, while Wol- dron and Gorecki were our only men showing much scor- ing ability. Leising was out of this game (and the next three) because of a football injury, but it was none the less appar- ent that the new rules had taken away the advantage of our tall centers, Leising and Ing, The next meet was at Middletown against a strong Wesleyan team. The Academy team ap- peared to have improved all around, and in the first half the going was about even. Coast Guard trailing by five points at the half. Wesleyan came back strong in the second period, piling up an ever-increasing lead to the end. The first home game was the last game before Christmas leave, for which Colby came down from Maine. The Blue and White took the lead at the start and held it for most of the first half, but when Colby forged ahead they stayed ahead. Both teams missed many easy shots, giving Colby the victory by four points. In the first half of the game at Storrs the The Captain cadets played their best ball of the season, Jl keeping up the old tradition that the % C E Leising, Jr , Captain Jj MtM Academy always saves its best for Conn. State. State had one of the rank- ing teams in New England, but it wasn ' t too good for the teamwork and the shooting of the cadets. W a 1 d r o n especially played an excellent defensive game and put on a beautiful exhibition of long-range shoot- ing. Through the first ten minutes of the second half we kept our lead, then Pringle and Peterson of State went on a scoring spree that gave State the game 52-40. Pringle scored 20 points and Waldron 18 m this game. The week following we played Connecticut again, this time in Billard Hall. State had changed her style, employing a fast-breaking game instead of her usual methodical one, and before Academy settled down to their usual brand of ball State was Lettermen m kJt J t LJ II k. LJ Il U i leading 19-2. Then the Blue and White team went wild, tak- ing possession of the ball for the rest of the half, but were un- able to stop Pringle ' s basket-hanging tac- tics from netting an occasional score to make the tally 20-32 at the half. The sec- ond half was slower than the first with State leading all the way. Waldron, Win- stead, Girdler and Richmond played an excellent game, but the final score was 59-39 against us. The first team to bow to the Academy was Lowell Textile. Our boys started fast and kept it up to build up a convincing 21-9 lead at the half. In the second half we slowly increased our lead to win 38-21, playing a good all-around game. Mass. State brought down their best team in several years and although The Squad I ■Valdron and Gor- cki gave the Acad- . my an early lead of 0, Massachusetts soon tied it up at 8 all at the end of three minutes ' play. After that one spurt the cadets trailed for the remainder of the game. Waldron was forced to retire be- cause of a previous leg injury and was missed from the team for the rest of the sea- son. Gorecki was the outstanding player of the evening, scor- ing 13 points and boxing up one of State ' s best men. The team bettered their average play against Norwich University and won, for the fourth consecutive time, the trophy awarded by the New London " Day. " Gorecki was again the high scorer for the Coast Guard, accounting for 15 of the Academy ' s 33 points. He paced the team until he went out on personals near the close of the second half. Largely due to his accurate shooting the cadets led from the start, and the defensive work of the team as a whole pre- vented any scoring sprees on the part of Norwich. An outstanding New Eng- Winstead Girdler Waldron ' .M n land aggregation invaded Billard Hall on the following week, the long, lanky Maroons of Worces- ter. The Cadets started off with a scoring spree of one field goal, Worcester made the next six, and so on far into the night. Girdler and Leising did some fair shooting but the fast, tall Worcester men were much superior as the lop-sided score indicates. The last game of the season was against Trinity, who were supposedly weak this year. The Cadets did not click at any time during the evening and the game turned into a rout, the reputedly poor Trinity five racking up a 50-20 win. Lettermen for the past year are Waldron, Leising, Art Engel, Ben Engel, Ing, Winstead, Girdler, Gorecki, Richmond, Russell, Rohrkemper, Ayers, Kincaid and Paine. Next year Bob Waldron will be sorely missed, as well as the four other graduating members, but we look to Coach Merriman to co-ordinate and develop the fine material he has. B.

Valley Cham. 7th Wesleyan 16 39 Trinity 22 33 THIS was a year of slump for the Cadet harriers. Despite the hard work of Lieu- tenant Arrington, and the championship run- ning of Captain Buxton, the record of the team was not enviable. Starting off well with almost a perfect score against Worcester, the runners looked good, Burton, Pfeiffer and McCubbin making a hand-in-hand, grandstand finish in first place, with Crouch close behind. The only hitch in the matter was that the Engineers were in very poor condition, which was not the case with our other opponents. Of the Rhode Island and Amherst meets, the less said the better. Both schools COUNTRY had championship ag- gregations and Buxton was the only Cadet to make a showing in either meet. Next on the schedule was the Connecticut Valley Champion- ship. The Cadets were handi- capped by the absence of Crouch and McCubbin with the result that the Academy finished a close seventh, against six other teams, Buxton making an individual ninth to win a medal. Wesleyan, winners of the Conn. Valley Championship, set too fast a pace, the leaders covering the first miles in 4:36, and came out far ahead of our harriers. Trinity, with McCubbm and Crouch back in the line-up, looked easy but proved otherwise, winning the meet and forcing Buxton to win with a new course record of 17:25. Lettermen for the next year are Buxton, Pfeiffer, Prause, Crouch and Maines. Buxton will be missed next year, but Bob Prause should be able to lead the remaining material back to the high rank the Academy has previously held in local cross country. W. H.

State 43 31 55 20 59 16 58 17 THE dash and distance swimmers were not replaced from past losses this year and the team was correspondingly weak in these events, which accounts for about half the points of a swimming meet. Riedel and Castronovo made divmg the out- standing feature of the team, taking first and second in four out of six meets. Hammond was a consistent winner m the backstroke and generally gave the boys a lead in the medley relay, while Holt in the dashes and Schroder in the breaststroke put m good seasons. But it was not enough. The net result was a percentage of 0.000 for the season. We made our best showing in the first meet, against Wesleyan. Hammond, Shoemaker, and Clary turned in a good 3:27.2 to win the medley. Hammond won the backstroke. Holt and Schroder took first and second in the 60 yard dash, we won the dives and the 400 yard relay, but that was all. The trouble here and throughout the season was in the distance and lack of seconds and MING ' . ::• :♦- thirds, diving being the only event in which we consistently took first and second place. The rest of the season was a slow decline from a mediocre beginning and showed great lack of material. Constantly pitted against stronger teams, the swimmers did well and showed promise in spots, but were unfortunately outclassed. Hammond, our most versatile swimmer, filled in at several jobs and did them all well, while Holt, Schroder and Conant, among the others, chalked up a few points. Lettermen for the year are Clary, Hammond, Holt, Schroder Riedel and Castronovo. Losing from the squad only Shoemaker by graduation, and Castronovo, the team should be in far better shape next year and should have a good season. A word or two about Coach Erickson. For the past several years his efforts with the team have been a constant source of mspirotion. His interest in the Academy, in the swimming team, and in its members personally, has bound the team together. " Eric " faithfully hopes to have a championship swimming team in the near future. pe H RIFLE Meet Yale Harvard Conn. State Bowdoin Conn.

The Academy un- dertakes a very am- bitious schedule oi twelve games with the better small col- lege teams of New England. In early season practice games they have shown some good baseball with snappy fieldmg and hard hitting and from appearances this should be the best season for the Academy since the intercollegiate campaign was undertaken four years ago. The season opens with two games on foreign soil, to return to the home field against our traditional rival, Norwich. This should be an interesting game as the series stands all even with one win apiece and two ties. The season rolls along to a fmale on the Saturday before graduation when we meet Worcester for the last episode in another year of Academy sports. i TENNIS SCHEDULE Connecticut State Trinity Wesleyan A NEW experiment for the Academy, and one which we can wish success, tennis has its birth and baptism as an intercollegiate sport this spring. As " Tide Rips " goes to press a completely green team, few of whom have ever experienced any tournament tennis, are swinging into action under the tutelage of Lieutenant Commander Swicegood and the captaincy of Al Wuerker. The condition of the courts has heretofore precluded the possibility of a team, but with improved courts, new nets, and a rising enthusiasm for the game among the Corps, the better tennis players are anxious to test their s kill. The scheduled season is brief, but it is hoped that a few practice matches with local teams may develop during the season. A. W. Wuerker Captain D.

We have extended our- selves to the utmost to make " Tide Rips 1938 " a publication worthy of the Academy and the class it represents.

An attempt has been made to let pictures tell the story, and the writing has been correspondingly deleted with the belief that the reader ' s imagination will supply a fuller and more keen explanation.

USN THE Coast Guard Academy is provided with a chaplain from the U. S. Navy. During the past two years the Corps has enjoyed the services of Chaplain Stephens, who has served in the Navy, afloat and ashore, for more than twenty years. He was in Haiti with the U. S, Marines, had a tour of duty in Samoa, and was once chaplain of the Asiatic Fieet. The chaplain ' s work is largely of a personal nature. The Corps has always found Chaplain Stephens to be a friend of profound experience and kindly insight, always willing to help his " young shipmates " solve any problems they might encounter — or to pass the time of day chatting amicably. Every Sunday a nondenominational Chapel Service is held in the auditorium. This quiet hour of devotion is indispensable to Cadet routine, soothing music, spirited hymns, and a sermon turn thoughts to spiritual matters for a time.

In the 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 request. After a few rehearsals, held during moments gleaned from an already full schedule, the choristers bring forth surprisingly good melodies with which they favor the public on certain special occasions. At the Easter Sunrise Service, held at daybreak in the stadium, the Glee Club presents an anthem. Later in the year, during Grad Week, it comes forth again with hymns at the Baccalaureate Service. None of us — graduate or swab — will forget the moving strains of " God Be with You Till We Meet Again " as the Glee Club brings it to us at this service each year.

" C.G. efficiency — seamen in oilskins watering parade ground in pouring rain. " I geef you seexty-five, and eet ees a geeft! " Spring term and elbow grease converted a di- lapidated schooner into a dream ship, the " Chase. " (Cof- fin isn ' t coming back next year!) 1 GKoToA y ' f m2 W ? " r O for a soft and gentle wind! I heard a fair one cry; But give to me tlie snoring breeze And white waves heaving high; And white waves heaving high, my lads, The good ship tight and free — The world of waters is our home. And merry men are we. There ' s tempest in yon horned moon, And lightning in yon cloud; But hark the music, mariners! The wind is piping loud; The wind is piping loud, my boys, The lightning flashes free — While the hollow oak our palace is, Our heritage the sea. I n VI n Such gorgeous sails, my, my! what fun — Just grab a line and start to run, Who cares if they should get it done or not? Then dance along the deck with glee. For merrily they put to sea And tie the sails and halyards in a knot. The second class before the mast — Lord only knows how it could last With diesel smoke, Jug Butt, and Captain Al. They stood their watches in their bunks, ( " A " section are a bunch of punks) But all had lots of fun — so what the hell! •. • ' -. ' »-. ► - ' Introduction to juice: " Now, when I was at G.E. . . . " Car- bon steel went up — Buxton: " 8 percent carbon, sir " — Eddie: " 30 percent carbon, sir " — O-oh! Phenomenal changes: Gone was the " dawn of a new day. " Take white service or blue serv- ice (or will there be liberty?) Thorn Junior and Marshall took an early pajama bath. Captain Al ' s sea terms, dog, and divid- ers. Poker belo w — " I ' ll bet 3 beans " . . . " Raise you five beans! " When V.E. would the class instruct They packed them all in two-bit trucks To look at shops and tools, machines, and gears. While thirteen went with Dutch and Day The lucky went the other way To chew the fat and stow a couple beers. Then while they gold-bricked out the term And jumped the ship at every turn, As Little Jim and Nell can well recall, They primed themselves for thirty days With gals and jugs and lazy ways — As P.V. ' s Roozeboom began to pall! Fourteen-foot draft and a two- fathom bottom and so on into Nantucket: " And this is the fin- est example of a Widow ' s Walk, and that is Mrs. Murphy ' s cow. " Kniskern threw a half hitch around the tail of a shark, the only catch of the summer. " Pipe it down. " " PIPE IT DOWN! " " Pipe it down!! " A watery grave for Jenocko ' s spe- cial — corned beef and cabbage. But undoubtedly the happiest days of Cadet life . . . To ' ' f AheRiCAn loBAcco Co They re back again to start anew But still the chicken it flew, Yet there they were with two more years to kill, They worked and played, but still they raved And frantically they were enslaved By D.D., D.B., D.T.

For snappy step and perfect ranks The only thing they got in thanks Was " Who are they " — and heels all soaked in blood! ' f:xm When asked how much of a dif- ficuh assignment was to be re- membered, Mr. Arrington ' s dry- remark: " Sixty-five percent. " Captain Al clad in overcoat muffler and fur-lined gloves standing in sub-zero quadran gle — " It ' s too warm for pea coats, make the uniform whites! " The immortal remark — Eddie: " Sir, someone told me I was due for twins ... " Fore- top: A former machine-shop employee from New Jersey now has Elise on the Deshon House. ; ' 6 ' l ; ' Spring fever found them on the sand With cans of beer in either hand, Or wrecking Sam ' s A.C. with happy brawls. Musanti ' s saw them once or twice — And sometimes Izzy ' s would suffice To hide the way the days began to crawl. Extended order had its day. And soon poor Foretop passed away — The local gals were better than the press! The Ring Dance finished up the year. And many parties added cheer While Doc and Zeke made them a swell success! . C .« FORETOP At last Honest John knows why he gets the hiccups — they result from the Perfect Gas Law. Murati: " It ' s hair today and gone tomorrow. " Engel (after Ordnance exam): " That ' s the first Ordnance book I ' ve ever written. " I ' m a little prairie flower Growing wilder every hour. Nobody tries to cultivate me. I stink. As New London goes, So goes Buxton. »••! One ship drives east and another drives west, While the self-same breezes blow. It ' s the set of the sails, and not the gales That bids them where to go. Like the winds of the seas, are the ways of the fates As we voyage on through life. It ' s the set of the soul, that decides the goal. And not the storms or the strife. R H ' • ! Because of Europe ' s clouded skies The course they steered was queer, Their navigation did no good To make the matter clear; By luck alone they left the foam — Of waves — for that of beer. In London ' s misty, muddy muck The " Savage " clan did stare. Then on to Oslo ' s midnight sun — The consul ' s treat was rare. For some there were who had to leave- And some who wouldn ' t dare. " Steimied! " ( " And those not on navigation will only take tw enty sights a day. " ) Hyde Park in London — a real center of free speech — yes, speech! Wuerker and Waldron helped Land direct traffic at Trafalgar Square. The Cayuga got an oil bath. Oslo, ' nuff said! Stock- holm, a planetarium lecture in English. " Rix, Rax! It ' s the 4th of July — Independence Day in the U.S.A.! " The consul threw a party — Musanti style! ' ■■(!: 1 X - f They soused up all Madeira ' s wine And stuffed their guts with glee For soon they would be sailing home To leave the rolling sea — So merrily they drilled and stooged For Captains A and B. September — back in jail again To row in rain and cuss, As passing time wrought rapid change In Jenocko ' s boarding house, The first class left— thank God for that! But " L.L. " was a louse. .xn Antwerp — things picked up. Doc: " Could you push the bus a little farther? " — Action! Cam- era! (But the camera wasn loaded.) Madeira — " Changee for changee! " Wicker chairs for old clothes. Officer mistakes Cadet for native. Norfolk, a party, gals, but no liberty. Long range — " one man gang " scored six misfires, three foul bores, a broken air lock, jammed powder bag, broken firing circuit, and one dropped shell. " Steimied " again — Mon- tauk on the port bow! Ovt Mfifi CMi I,:., L As upperclass they started out To make good what was not, " I think it ' s good, submit a plan ... " The plan was all they got. While Batt Headquarters ' orders flew And they all called it rot. As weekend liberty became A pap book holiday (O yeah?), And Happy ' s rams became their lot: One class per week — one queez, Eg-Ip, Mayevski — tree! Weekends were just a tease. Hard Hitting Henry: " How long do you have to live in a place to be aborigines? " Dutch: " Sometimes I don ' t think I ' m a man. " The Purity League on a binge — Honest John: " I ' ll take a coca-cola. " — Hank: " Make mine ginger-ale. " True-love Savage: ' A glass of virater please, I ' m driving. " The Duke and his driving — when he and the road turn the same way it ' s a coinci- dence. Engel and Engel, the bicker boys, kept in form by heckling the platoon leaders. A 7 .

With Grad Week and ten kegs of beer. With dough and cars to ride, Some pampered pets will leave their jail To travel far and wide. While scattered few will swap their due — Well burdened with a bride! Wuerker didn ' t acquire that stoop from carrying the bat- talion on his shoulders — he used to carry bags for Kaplan. Leising would have put in for Worcester, but there ' s no cutter there. Waldron — from not to not, and back to naught again. " What does the bride think when she walks into the church?

Copper for corrosion resis- tance " — that was the specification that for many years swayed metal users in their choice of materials. But, one of the first to find that one metal sup- plied both was the Coast Guard. The result: just let ' s look around a C. G. boat. Monel is used for hull fastenings, propeller shafts, water breakers. For airports, hoisting fittings, re- frigerator linings. Or for any item that needs pro- tection against corrosion by salt air and saltier water and has the strength and toughness to be dependable.
