PUBLISHED BY THE CORPS OF CADETS OF THE :i ' m: UHinSD STMTES COAST CrUAlU NEW LONDON , CONNECTI R A)MIRAL RUSSELL RANDOLPH WAESCHE EVER before has the Coast Guard presented such broad horizons of opportunity to its newly commissioned officers as it does today. Under an enhghtened and active leadership, the Service, in recent years, has had its functions clarified and extended; the many varied units have been better organized and coordinated; the personnel and facilities have been enlarged; relationships with other government agencies, mari- time interests, and the general public have been improved. Each of these changes has involved a tremendous amount of foresight, plan- ning, supervision, and hard work. Especially is this evi- dent when one considers the difficulty of departing from tradition, of changing from processes which have gone on Muich the same year after year. It is fortunate that the leadership of this work was in thehandsof a man of exceptional intelligence, courage, and fore- sight, else such difficult goals v ( uld never have been achieved. For his success in building a greater Coast Guard, for his personal effort and industry, for the kindness and under- standing with which he has always exercised his command, we do respectfully dedicate this book to Rear Admiral Russell Randolph Waesche, Commandant of the Coast Guard.

We have rowed across the River on frosty mornings, welcoming a glorious sunrise. We have shivered as wintry blasts and swirling snow swept through the quadrangle of Chase Hall. We have dozed and dreamed as soft spring breezes wafted through the open windows of Satterlee Hall. We have rested for brief moments during hot drill hours in the welcome shade of the Willow. We have stood at Present Arms before Hamilton Hall, bathed in sunset colors, as the gun boomed forth evening salute and the Ensign came fluttering slowh down. Because of these and a host of other memories associated with Academy scenes, we love them and want them included here in our book. ront i lew of- the caciemu K nade Jwail I 1 I •.y amuton J atl i I I attertee J atl Ite ..Arcade I ne K-Jbderuatofi Y I (4 lH I he f- afude K found I he eaDock J To coordinate the various units of the Coast Guard in their niani- (oM duties, a smooth -I ' unetioniuf: ehain ol ' eonimand is essential.

He seldom ever steps on anyone ' s toes, does his work methodi- cally with a mininunn of griping and procrastinating, and is generally a very self-sufficient person. A man of good taste, he enjoys good literature and music, has unimpeachable manners, and loves to hold forth in intelligent discussions. Barb ' s hobby is the Dance Committee, and he has ridden it well. Under his direction, grand dreams of dances set " midst winter snow scenes, under tropical waters, or among myriads of blood red hearts have actually materialized. Other activities in which Bob has engaged are swimming, tennis, and sailing — not to mention his perilous pastime of acting as contact man for cadets desiring to date local talent. Always a steady, dependable classmate, we knou that Barb ' carr on in the Service in the same fine style.

" Mike " , he said liis name was. so " Mike " it has been ever since. His high forcliead, sjiarse red hair, and rather durable nature soon resulted in his being labeled also, " the Rock " . Mike hails from Los Angeles, and will take on all coiikts in an argument concerning the relative merits ol his home state. In fact, he is usually willing to take on all comers in any argument. He delights in arguing, just for the sake of hearing himself talk, and at class meetings he generally causes quite an uproar. He believes in the adage tliat there are two sides to everv question, and he certainly goes to a lot of trouble to present the " other " side. Active in athletics, he is best at playing soccer, boxing, and sprinting for liberty parties. Other extra-curricular activities, such as being manager of the sailing team and Tide Kips photographer have not kept his grades down. He is also a constant conuiuiter between here and Groton (except when Yale is having a big event). We will remember Mike for his keen sense of humor, his Irish pugnacity, and his eternal verbal battles with other sand blowers regarding his small stature. We will miss the hail, " llev Kock! " . and the inevitable answer. " Ta-ta. " just as we will miss his contagious grin and his criticisms of Florida fruit. Mike will be a good officer, just as he has been a good classmate, and he will make friends wherever he goes. J " B " ( oiiij)an Adjutant.

He looked so green and hewildered that we were all given to wonder whether he would ever develop into a military man. Not knowing exactlv what to do with all of his six feet four inches, he was continually hounded by the order, " knock off the bouncing. Mr. Hurliorst. " and otlier similar plirases, and his swab year was not much fun for him. However, time has wrought great changes in Bur. As eonunander of " " Company, he is as militarv as thev come. Ilis academic record is high, and he is recognized as among the saltiest in the class. Furthermore, he now has more than his share of social graces, and fits easily in any sort of gathering. Another characteristic which has developed in Bur ' s trans- formation is his taste for good literature and music. As a classmate. Ked has been a good one. He has laughed with us. griped with us, shared in our parties and adventures. Always he has been willing to put his books aside to help a less savvy classmate. Perhaps he is inost famous for his harmonica playing, his ping- ponging, his throaty version of " La Golondrina, " and his ability to lose cameras overboard. Pauls four years here have been well spent. He has mixed his play ith his work and has achieved a fine balance belwei ' u the two. We have no doubts as to his success in the Service.

Nothing seems to worry or upset him. K H In academics his aim has been high and he has ris( n steadily to a jtosition n " ar the top of the class. His jiower of concentration is unquestioned. If he doesn ' t answer when you say " Colonel " , you can bet he is deep in thought. He is a voracious reader. If you want to discuss a recent book or a magazine article he is usually well up on the subject. Though not a natural athlete, Clyde has shown his spirit by plugging away at boxing for four hard years. In his weight class where competition is particidarly keen, his easy going nature has prevented his being " tops " ' , but he has contributed nnich to the success of our number one sport. In social life his fame rests chiefl upon his mountain swing style of dancing, and his generosity with compliments and pretty speeches. No debunker, he even embellishes the popular Paul ebb conception of Kentucky mountaineers. In an unguarded moment, however, he will admit that shoes and modern shooting irons are not rarities, and that his knowledge of feuds was gained from books. We can only hope that the Service will take the Colonel with the same ease with wliich the Colonel will take the Service. I ' laluori l ' (ll Ofliccr: Hoxing S(|iia(l I. .

Life is no serious task to liim. lie takes all proMniis in his stride with ease, graee. and cheerfulness. His happy eonihination of wit and the willingness to take part in any fun which is going on has won him many staunch friends. Karlv in his swah days. Jim was inspired by one of the more ethereal forms of love, and he has been radiating ever since. His attitude of " Gee. ain ' t life wonnerful! " has never been shaken, and the trials he has undergone have proven the extent of his devotion. Who will ever forget the night that Jim, suitcase in hand, " surreptitiously " reported his return aboard long after taps, and thereby joined the ranks of the Fifty (Hub ' . ' ' The fact that no academic star has ever gleamed on Jim ' s monkey jacket is not the result of any mental shortcomings. He would much rather lend his engaging presence to a friendly buH session than delve into the complexities of A. C. machinery; and he w ould rather gaze at Her gold-framed picture and dream of a little white cottage, rose bushes and the patter of little feet, than dwell on the performance curves of a centrifugal pump. Connecticut winters would have been much more bleak if we had not had " Cookie " with us. Loyal, friendly, and capable, he will make a fine officer, and we know that any ship to which he is assigned will be a happier one for his presence.

Q A ETEEH , O A HOLMES FORRESTER CROUCH M Baltimore, Maryland Holmes is the youngest and probably the most idealistie man in the class. As such, he has been a provider of buoyant and youthful good spirits throughout the four years, and has served to keep his rather elderly classmates from aging too rapidly. The characteristic for which we shall always remember " (Iruneli " is his knack for asking questions. " Sir, I probably should know this, but hat is . . . .? " However, in spite of what the rest of us think about this trait of his, we know that many an instructor would have felt quite discouraged had nobody volunteered to ask questions. While Holmes hasn " t been an outstanding athlete, his phenomenal lung capacity and dogged determination made him a natural for the cross-country team, and his excellent performance there won him the captaincy of that team in his last year. His other athletic activities consist chiefly of interclass sports, life-saving instruction, and taking Charles Atlas ' body beautiful course in front of his mirror in his room. Another unforgetable trait of Crunch ' s is a peculiar one. We think that he is the only man alive who, when the waves begin to break over the bow and the ship starts to pitch and toss, seemingly enjoys an attack of mal de mer. But this is in accordance with his character. He can take it. Crunch has a capacity for hard work and has been quite conscientious in his efforts here at the Academy. These qualities should go a long way toward making him a good officer.

Though trained to live by dock. hell, and bugle. Bill is famous for his ability to arrive almost anyw here slightly beyond the appointed hour. et his presence is always more than welcome, and his love of a good time is surpassed only by his desire to be called " Beelee " in the South American way. His talent for being non-reg has made Bill a charter member of the Leopard Club, and his urgent dislike for " Juice " has regularly damaged an otherwise good academic average. But " Jug " is not outstanding for this alone. He has shown a great deal of leadership ability in his capable handling of our social functions and in the brilliant manner in which he has supervised the organization of this book. With his ready smile and engaging manner. Bill has been very popular with classmates and underclassmen alike. It is with complete confidence in his future that we watch him take his place in the Service.

Not every young man has called for his girl with a Teddy bear under his arm and insisted upon taking the bear out to dinner with them. This is only one manifestation of his sense of humor, which, with his ready smile, he has consistently exhibited since he came from Dallas four long years ago. " Pinkie ' " was so named because of his diminutive stature. But he is made of solid stuff. Hard work and an indomitable spirit have won him not only a high academic standing, but a position on the boxing team and the post of company commander as well. With all these accomplishments, however, we can honestly say he has never been a grind, but has always found time to join in and appreciate the lighter things of life. One thing we shall always hold against him is his telling of those simple, pointless stories for which he has become notorious. The fact that Pink is still alive and hearty after four years of them is indeed a tribute to the self restraint of those of his classmates w ho suffered the telling. Probably the best key to Pinkie ' s character is his valuable conception of things worth- while, and he will work hard to attain them. Clean-living, fun-loving, congenial, and de- pendable, he has been a good classmate, and we wish him all the success which will un- doubtedly be his.

Fos has grown famous among us for his love of music in the modern manner, and his solo renditions of the sugar-foot and the jumping jive have livened up many a rec room session. Fast and hot or soft and sweet, Fos likes it all. His station in the rec room is by the radio, and when he ' s at his station, that radio can ' t produce anything but swing. His platform has always been " Let ' s have a big name band up for the next hop. " Bill is a master of the fine arts — tennis, skating, and sailing. His interest in tennis w as a major factor in making the game a varsity sport at the cadem . ell founded in the social graces, he has been a constant supporter of pleasant r dations between the Academy and the College. Inclined to consider every situation from all angles, we know that Fos will be read) for any assignment and will bring credit to the Service.

For our Sonny is not a niilfl. docile fellow. His deeds include diving off the crosstrees of the ( ' hase, throwing knives at people (all in fun, you know), tearing clothes off classmates, and a host of other equally weird acts. And with each of them is associated that wild, piercing shriek which we have come to recognize as his laugh. A man ol definite likes and dislikes. Sonny is completely frank about them and sticks to his opinions with perfect equanimity. Those of us who have come to know him realize, however, that beneath the impulsive, somewhat intolerant exterior is a man of real ability and courage. After seeing Sonny swim during swab year, we expected to see him shatter many records, but an injury in football the next fall deprived him of that championship " zip. " Never- theless, he is still good enough to hold his own against any competition, and he captained the swinnning team this last year. Perhaps his unique method of dieting — nothing but desserts for weeks on end — accounts for his success. Though hard pressed at times. " Sonny " has scorned the local belles for four years and held true to his home town girl. But he is essentially a gregarious fellow, and one can find no better companion for an evening at Fern ' s or an adventure-seeking expedition in some foreign port. A good man for any job. Sonny will be an asset to the Service. Platoon (-ominander: Swiiiimintj 1. 3, 2. 1 (Captain); Foolhall Manager 1: Circulation Manager Tide Kips. l 52 ' .

" has been laughed over for the last time, and long after his aeademic and athletie aeeomplishments have faded into the past, we shall still remember Normie for his intense propensity for shunbering. At anv time, at any plaee. and under any eir- eumstanees. he mav he found (juietly eorking off: and the gentle wheeze which invariably accompanies his slundx-rs is indeed a familiar sound to those of the Class of Forty. Perhaps Norniie ' s slumbers are well earned. Though h - is not exactly a whirlwind of action in his waking hours, still no one can deny that he does get things done. As a producer of elegant Christmas cards, he has no peer. And he stirred himself long enough to win a letter at football and a couple more at swimming. Aside from his sack, ormie■s chief interest is love. There are few more entertaining w ays of spending an idle half hour than seeking out Normie and asking him in an offhand way how his love life is coming along. His fatherly discussions on that subject have been a storehouse of information to the younger members of the class, and a constant source of amusement to the rest. We will miss Norniie ' s shuHling step in the corridor, his " Hey fellows, it ' s Normie! " and his annoving little habit of making himself cozy on our bunks. A very human sort of fellow, Normie will be well liked wherever he goes.

We envy Tex his scholarly mind, his rather subtle humor, and above all his ability to think a problem out to its logical conclusion when the rest of us would have made quite a mess out of things. Though he is usually quiet and reserved, we have on several occasions observed a wild. old-Texas strain in him, and voud go far wrong if you considered him altogether a solid, conservative sort of fellow . In extra-curricular activities. Jack has been a constant participant in interclass sports, and has also played on the varsity tennis squad. His greatest work, however, has been guiding the affairs of the A. A. A., for which he has served as assistant treasurer, treasurer, and president. He is to be commended for giving so much of his time to this thankless task. In spite of his high academic record, Tex is seldom found aboard during liberty hours. That distinguished look, together with his slow smile and ever-present drawl, make him quite a favorite with the ladies, and Jack tries to accommodate them all. With his natural " savviness " and fine traits of character. Jack will do well in the Service. (Company Petty Oflfirer; Tennis 2, 1: Cross Country Manager 1: Assistant Treasurer.

Of A VETEEH JAMES ALFRED MARTIN Birni ing i a m , 1 la ba in a Tliroufjli four years we have been impressed with the impor- tance of " The Scientific Metliofl " and liave been taught to accept only the proven fact. But we, and partieularlv " Al. " have had time for dreams also. Dreams of gold braid, fair ladies, con- Nertibic coupes, hot bands — and (of course) the ice patrol. Al is a middle-of-the-roader — not perfect at anvthing but good at most everything. He makes no claims of athletic ability, but his ability at basket- ball and cross-country proved that, had he been more ambitious in these, he would un- doubtedly have gained greater notice. A healthv specimen, lie |)laces great importance upon keeping fit. his favorite method of doing so being to take regular roadwork. Al is our strongest proponent of " liberty " and all the good things that go with it. If liberty had never been invented, he would have thought of inventing it. Practical in tastes and turn of mind, he is full of pleasantrv and sportiveness when not weighed down with duties. Savvy and ambitious, Al has not allowed his love of the social whirl to divorce him from the more serious Cadet activities, as witnessed by his standing number two at the end of three years. He is not afraid of putting out more than is required, and does the job at hand with elaborate thoroughness and attention to details. He seems to be a fellow who finds time for everything.

W ashing ton " And in this corner — Joe McClelland! " At this announcement h the referee, all Academy people from the superintendent down to the last swab pav close attention, not only because an excellent (■ liibition of boxing is about to take place, but also because Joe is indisputably the most outstanding cadet in the Academy. We can ' t conceive of Joe as being anything other than Number One Man. His academic record is one of the highest ever attained at the Academy. He has consistently starred in football and boxing for all four years, and ca|)tained both these teams in his last year. As a |)ro(icient military man. a savoir, and the natural leader of our class, he was the undisputed choice for battalion commander, and he has served in that capacity with the same thoroughness and capability that have marked all his activities. Finally, he is the brains behind this book. It sometimes happens that attainment of a position of leadership and authority in the Academy is accompanied by some personal animosity and bad feeling among classmates. Not so in the case of our Joe. His quiet, unassuming manner, high brand of intelligence, and complete sincerity have won him the admiration and respect of his classmates as well as the underclassmen. Though be is a steadying influence rather than an ardent hell- raiser, his presence is welcomed in any gathering, be it a bull session or a downtown party.

A typical " Joe College " when he entered, the ocean spray has slowly filtered throiigli liis veins to make him one of the saltiest men in the class. Mulligan isn ' t exactly a savoir ulien it comes to studies, hut he has always come through hen the occasion demanded. In atldctics. he lias been the captain and mainstay of our embryo soccer team, and has participated in most of our inter- class sports events. He is possessed with an indomitable fighting spirit, and the less aggres- sive members of the class have found it good policy to be on his side, either in an argument or in an athletic contest. However, his fighting spirit is augmented by a staunch loyalty for everything with which he is associated — his friends. The Academy, and The Service — and yve Uke him for it. Mac is always ready to take part in any wild adventure, or party. In fact, he is often the instigating force. Ilis buoyant cheerfulness and devil-may-care nature have done much to relieve the monotony of our regimented lives. Other accomplishments of Mulligan include being a charter member of Sammy ' s A. C. and the originator of such warnings as " Watch out for the crack in the sidewalk, Juggy! " With his knack for ufettintr things done without sacrificing too much of his good humor, M ulligan will prove a welcome addition to any wardroom.

" We who know and understand Ray greatly admire his perseverance and reliability. Mis studies, his work, and his jtlav have brought out these characteristics. In the classroom, we have stood aghast at his unshaken and outspoken faith in his own convictions — the in- structor and the " man in the book " notwithstanding. In athletics, Ray " was active on the gridiron, but his football playing days ended in second class year as a result of a trick knee. As boxing manager and second in th e ring for four years, he has been constantly encouraging the leather ]»ushers, and can coach " keep your left up, " and " his midsection is w ide open, " with the best of them. We shall always remember Ray for his ready laugh — whether we are laughing at or with him. we can always be certain that he will join right in. This sense of humor and a certain naive outlook remove most ol the eoniplitations from life for Ray. and we know that he will " carr on " with easy success in the Service.

I ' his (|iialit is still predominant in Jim, and as a resnlt of it his proojress has been steady and snre. To choose one outstandin i characteristic of " The Pitcher " is an easy matter — it speaks for itself. He is possessed with an inherent love of talk and discussion, and can expound quite ablv on almost anv subject, from making baseball a maj(jr sport to uj)hol(ling the honor of the class. That his talk is not idle prattle is evidenced by his election to the presi- dencv of the Moncjgram (Hub and bv his achievements in making that organization more active and vital to cadet life. Though not in the savoir class, Jim does well in " bid! " courses, and has emerged as our expert on maritime economics. Though the years and his greying locks are beginning to tell, " The Pitcher " has rounded out his academy life with an active participation in sports, particularh baseball, wlience he gained his nickname, and boxing. Vt ith his fine sense of fairness and his serious turn of mind, Jim will be a popular officer and a worthy representative of the (llass of 1940.

" Entering the Academy from the Navy, « Ken. hv virtue of his 22 years and his engaging manner, was selected to he our first class president. After a wild but active term in that capacity, he retired from public life and became " one of the boys " — slightly non-regulation, sack-loving, lazy, and ready for fun. During our four years, he has been intimately associated with every party, escapade, and adventure in which " 40 men have engaged both here and abroad. Pottsie ' s philosophy of live and let live, as well as his happy nature, makes him an admirable companion. Slow to criticize, quick to praise, and eternally cheerful, he treats everyone with that same spirit of friendliness. Pottsie ' s talents have led him into many fields. During his four years with us, he has been something of a boxer, a business man, a poet, and a philosopher. But he is really in character when wrapped around his battered old guitar, idly strumming aw ay and singing sentimental cowboy ballads. ken is also a staunch advocate of the more solid things of life, such as the institution of marriage. Of late he has been seen gazing wistfully at furniture store display windows. As a solid citizen of the more domestic type, he may be found any week-end in a home down- town, enjoying home cooking, an easy chair, his pipe, and feminine companionship. And so our likable, human Pottsie enters the Service, and we feel certain that he will be a success. Flatoon ( )mmaii(ler: Boxing 2. 1 1 Sailing 2. 1 ((jommodore); Class Officer 4. 1; (Chairman.

That was the heginning of the Class of 1940. During the years that followed, many of our original iiieinlicrs were di crtcd from their initial aim: now we arc jtist twenty, hut we still think of otir class in terms of the original fifty, and con- sequently want lo inchiile their pictures and a record of what they are doing here iti our hio- graphy section. A large percentage ot our foruu-r classmates enrolled at various colleges. They are: " Nick Krill at Missouri School of Mines; Bill Fales at University of Michigan; " Gangway " Kimiegan at Boston College; Jim Meehan at New York Uni- versity; " Zeke " Halsey (married) at the Uni- versity of Florida: Bert Potter at William and Marv: .Iohnn Sugdcn at Lafayette: .lack Sharp at Northeastern University: and Tad Totmati at Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute.

Perhaps their outstanding character- istic as a group is this variety, hut it takes all kinds to make a capahle class. That they are capahle has heen shown hy their manner of performing the important duties entrusted them. In the task of indoctrinating the fourth class, they have co-operated ahly and enthusiastically with the first class in an effort to estahlish a new and hetter order.

It is some- thing of a step into the background, however, because he is no longer the focal point of upper class attention, and as yet has but little opportunity to test his talents in the affairs of the battalion. Being thus left more or less to himself, the academic board keeps his time fully occupied with such subjects as differential equations, atomic physics, mechanics, and spherical trigonometry. As the year has moved along, the third class has accepted more authority. Much of the responsibility of fourth class indoctrination has become theirs, and with graduation time they are ready to assume the privileges and responsibilities of another stripe. We are confident that the Class of 42 «ill wear it well, and will uphobi and enrich the (Jorps traditions. 79 W . V. VHAMS lliinliii liin I ' ark. California J. A. l.l)E Arliiu ' l.m.

Beemer Master-at-A rnt Treasurer Secretary I ' resident I ice-President This year ' s fourth class can easily claim to he the most unusual class to enter the Academy within recent years. When the original eighty-eight men were admitted during July. U)!W. it liecame evident that the exigencies of the Service would soon require a suhstantial increase in the commis- sioned ofTicer personnel, so thirty-five additional Cadets were appointed late in Septemher. Larger in numher than the entire three upper classes, the Swabs pre- sented no small problem in the matter of molding the group into a military body. However, a new and radically different system of instructing and indoctrinating the fourth class was instituted. To this class, " stoop- falls " and " personal service " are customs of the past. With the new order, a more military attitude and a better Clorps spirit and morale are growing. It is our hope that the Class of " 43 will carry on this program with future fourth classes in the effort to build an ever finer Corps tradition. 83 ■ u: . ' " C H R. A. Adams D. B. Anderson H.

Tabulation of the seasons results, showing 12.6 points per game for our opponents as compared to 12.8 points per game averaged over the last three years indicates the caliher of th - lO.W team. Next year the squad will have considerable ex- perienced talent. Only players graduating are Burhorst. rangy center, and Captain McClelland, who played the entire season w illiout once leaving a game.

A return game was scheduled to be played in Springfield the following week, but the Aces cancelled the game, leaving us an extra week in which to prepare for Trinity. Facing an imposing arrav of Trinitv hooters on their home field, the Cadets went the limit to try to close the season with a win. Although Cadet toes hooted the ball through the uprights twice. Trinity came out on the long end of another 5-2 score. McMullan. IJills. Earle.

These are the m -n who arc rcsponsihh ' for the military conduct of the troops in the barracks as well as on the drill field. The amount of instruction and the Irainiiip which is received h) the underclassmen depends ujjon the thoroufihness with which these MKMi carr out ihcir assi;;nincuts. Sharing their responsibilities are the platoon petty officers, who can do a great deal toward the development of a smooth-lunctioninii platoon by lending capable assistance. Color petty officers and platoon guides are selected from among the members of the Second Class, while the remaining second classmen and a few third classmen are appointed squad leaders. Only three hours a week are available to the battalion for military drill, due to the stress of academics.

Goal of this training is to instill hahits of dis- cipline and strict obedience to orders in each cadet, as well as to develop the ahilitv to think rapidlv on ones feet. 1 he degree of success with which each unit carri ' s out its [trograin during the year is indicated by the showing which it makes in the militarv competitions held each spring as a pari of the Graduation Week cere- monies. There are platoon and company compe- titions, with each unit running through a given series of maneuvers under ihi- critical eyes of Army, Navy, and Marine Corps officers who act as judges. Individual proficiency in Manual-at- Arms is demonstrated in a drill-down, in which each class is represented h) the two men who ha c shown themselves most skilled in handling rifles. Rivalrv is very keen, and proud are the company and platoon commanders whose imits walk off with the prizes. i ' m .t .

Even going to and from classes, and in the classes themselves, discipline docs not relax. Each class is divided into a nund)er of sections, and the sections are in charge of a section leader at all times, this duty rotating among the memhers of the section. The section leader is res[)onsil(le for the conduct of the section marching to and from class and in the classroom before the instructor arrives. Any delinfpiency of the section leader or of any cadet in the section is reported to the Cadet O. D.. who will place the offender on report.

I ' hr |iriii.i|ial .liflcroiu-e lies in ihc fact that all cadets pursue the same course of studv. This makes possible a high degree of co- ordiiialiou hclwccri liie academic departments, resulting in a logical progression of suhjccts and the elimination of repetition. The niilitarv organization of the cadet corps contrihutes matcriallx lo the effectiveness of the instruction. In comparison «ith the average col- lege or technical school, the Academy has the advantage of complete control over the student s time for 2 1 hours a day and I 1 months of the year. There is no lost motion in such a system, and it has Professok C. E. Dimick Head nf M(illi matics Dcparlmciit, Member Academic Board i ' Professor H. L. Seward Maritime Econumics Dept., Member Advisorv Board heen estimated that where the number of semester hours in the average course in engineering is 145.5, the corresponding nuiidx-r at the Academy is 177.6. In the cullnral sulijects. the total semester hours is 65, nearly three-fourths of the minimum required for the A.B. degree in a liberal-arts college. The course of instruction was laid out after an extensive study by a board of distinguished edu- cators working in cooperation with the faculty of the cadcm . This advisory connnittee exercises a conlimiing supcr ision over the curriculum and recommends such changes as may from time to lime appear desirable. Many educational authori- lies who arc familiar «illi cadcm curriculum rale our academic standards on | ar willi or higher llian those of other ser ice schools. 156 MATHEMATICS The incoiiiiiii, ' cadol is given courses in Irigoiiotiieli y and ali; ' liia uliiili review and sii|i|ilemenl work, in lliese sniijects reijuired for entrance. This is followed during the next two years by courses in analytical geometry, differential and integral calcnliis. differential equations, and nieelianies. The course in niathenialics is laid out so that it gives a iiackgroinid for handling all nialhcuiatics encountered in other suhjects studied at the Academy. This is possible hecause each cadet takes the same course, so that the instructor is able to look ahead a year or two when the work to be covered in the course is laid out. In this wa he may concentrate upon the more valuable phases of the subject, and a[)ph the theory to practical problems. A higher order differential equation, for instance, may be a pureK theoretical concept until it is encountered in a heat transfer problem in thermodynamics. In this way the cadet studies mathematics which will br of particular use to him as an engineer and a navigator. Mimnins ihc hhwkhoanls .) A. J .) J.

Continuing beyond the stutly of heat, light, magnetism, sound, mechanics, electricity, and properties of matter which usually limit a physics course, the final term leads the cadel into the mysteries of Atomic Physics. Investigating the latest theories of atomic structure and the physics of vacuum tubes, the cadet, receives an introduc- tion to much material which he will again encounter in his first class radio course. In connection with and closely paralleling the classroom work, the cadel performs a considerable amount of experimental work in the laboratory. The apparatus is modern and complete, so that the experiments performed are on a par with the work done in the best technical schools of the country.

Iiiil llic niajorily have had none whatever, so the training starts at the bottom. One of the first things which the cadets of the entering class learn is elementary marlinespike seamanship. This training gives a hackground for the practical aspects of seamanship which cadets learn on the practice cruises. At the Academy, upperclassnien spend spare minutes instructing fourth classmen in knot tying, throwing heaving lines, resuscitation, signaling hv semaphore, and similar subjects. This instruction is a part of the training program. One phase of seamansiiip training which deserves comment is the daily boat drill, held on the river at 6:10 each morning, except during the winter months. Every cadet gels a good deal of practice and instruction in the handling of boats under oars and sail. The Academy fleet includes eight International 14-foot Dinghies, four 26-foot sloops of the knockabout type, and four Inter- national Star Boats.

Tlie general scope of the Navigation Department covers the theory and use of the navigational instruments. Here the cadet finds opportunity to apply his hackground of mathematics. The motions of the astral and solar hodies are studied. (Iharts. currents, tides, and navigational tiieories are mastered. The course includes the study of the magnetic compass and its compensation, as well as the theory and construction of tiie gyrocompass. Study of the elements of sur- veying and the use of surveying instruments is also included in the work given hy this department. On the cruises the cadet applies iiis knowledge in the role of Cadet Navigator. He must lay owl the ship ' s course, delermine and plot its position from time to time by means of sights and dead reckoning, estahlish compass and gyro-errors periodically, and perform all the duties of a ship ' s navigator.

Today. man ships use electrical machines for practicalK all power-consuming deviees from the main drive motors to the gallcv range, so training in electrical engineering is essential to future odicers. Direct and alternating-current theory and machines are studied, classroom work being sup- plemented by eonsiderable work in the electrical laboratory. From A.C. machines, the course in electricity advances to radio engineering midwav in the first class year. One look at the extensive array of radio equipment aboard any cutter is enough to con- vince one that a knowledge of radio would prove helpful. Lectures are supplemented by work in a well-equipped radio laboratory. Instruction in comnumications is also untler the supervision ol the radio department. Uclrmml I) . •:.

There was a lime when a man was considered a marine engineer il he knew something ahout hull construction, reciprocating steam engines, anti Scotch hoilers. Today engineers in the (loast (Juard nnist deal with the gasoline engines of high-speed picket hoats and light patrol i)oats. with Diesel engines, aviation engines, geared and electric re- duction tiirhines. as well as many auxiliary machines. Consistent advancement is heing made in the (icid of marine design. Power anri eflicieney ol main(lri e units are constantK increasing, and the applications of power ai)oard ship are heing extended.

Metallographie laboratory work is done in connection with the materials course. Classroom work in naval construction is supple- mented l(v visits to nearhy marine industrial plants. Cadets also recei e practical i-ngineering instruction aboard 165-fool Diesel-powered patrol boats. Beginning with the second class year, marine engineering constitutes the major portion ol ' the curriculum. The study of thermodynamics and heat engines is begun, and shop work is continued. On the cruise the following summer, the (irsi classmen spend their time on engineering duty in the engine room. During the first class vear. the engineering department presents courses in T?oilcrs. Naval Machinery and Auxiliaries, ' I ' urbincs. Internal Coud)Ustion Kngines. and Marine l ' " ,n- gineering Design. The latter is a laboratory course in which theory learned in oilier courses is put to practice in power-plant design. 163 GENERAlj 1 1, s. II. i:,,,,,-. I I. I. I. l. llirr,H 1.1. . . I.

Although the primary aim of eadet training is to produce men ulio will he ca|)ahli ' and dependahle mciidjers of a ship ' s force, an officer is expected to he something more; he must he an informed citizen, aware of the social, economic, and political activities and prohlems of his country and the world. He must be cognizant of the parts played by the Coast Guard, and hy him- self as an indi idual in the welfare of the nation. The Department of General Studies, therefore, attempts to round out the ' a(let " s technical education with a balanced selection of cultural subjects. English Composition. French or Spanish, and Scientific Thought are jiarl of the ciirricuhirn for the first year. In the latter course an attempt is made to give the students a scientific, or o[)cn-rniridcd anil orderly approach to |)rohlems. lo; lUDIES Tlic I)c cloiirnoiil of Western Civilization and a seeonil ear n( loreif;!!

The seeonil elassnien devote half of a year to the study of Con- teinporar Eeonoinie I ' rolileins. Maritime Eeo- noniies is studied the last term of this year and also during part of the first elass year. The latter is a new course, developed hecause the Coast (Guard ' s peace-time functions are largelv concerned wiili the mcrciiant marine. Aiding vessels in distress, keeping vessels notified as to ice movements in the North Atlantic, aiding in the enforcement of neutrality and customs laws, training seamen and officers for merchant ships, maintaining and operating lighthouses and other aids to navigation, assisting in the inspection of ships, and a host of other duties make it essential that officers be familiar with the problems faced hv ship owners and hy the men who run the ships. Government aid to eonunerce invohes proper regulation, so a comprehensive study of law has been made a part of the curriculum for the first class year. This is in keeping with the Coast (jnard ' s duties of law enforcement in its role as the Maritime Police Force of the United States. The course is not limited to law enforcement, hut includes a study of admiralty, military law, evidence, civil law, and criminal law. r ' " ' Im lnictiir Cnslim . Biiniii InslriKliii :. ( ' ..

The United States Navy details a meinher of the (Chaplain ' s Corps to the Academy to serve as the Academy Chaplain. This year we have been especially fortunate in having assigned to iis Chaplain Moore, who has served in many parts of the world under widely varying conditions. He is thoroughly familiar with the problems with which young men in the Service arc faced, and is able to use his wide knowledge to advantage in the spiritual leadership which he offers. (Cliaplain Moore has not confined his activities to conducting chapel services, hut has taken an active pari in cademv affairs. He pays occasional visits to the Cadet Barracks, frecpiently joins in a sailing party, and attends athletic events and similar activities regularly. He maintains regular office hours at the Academy and cadets have always felt free to drop in to chat for a few moments, or to ask advice upon any matter about vnIucIi they may be concerned. As a service to the churches and people of Eastern Connecticut, the Academy offers its facilities at Easter each year for Sunrise Services. The Services are always widely attended, annually drawing the largest crowd of the year to the reservation. They are made possible by the cooperation of the churches and |)alriotic organizations of New London, and are conducted by the Academy Chaplain assisted by the local clergymen. If the weather is favorable, the congregation assembles in the grandstands of Jones Field; if inclement. Billard Hall is always prepared for use in the emergency, though its capacity is taxed to the limit.

A canopy softens lights and casts a mellow glow over all. As tlie nmsif hegins. yon join the couples on the floor, and the crowd rapid 1 swells as the late-comers arrive. Soon the floor is filled with dancing couples, while along the sides little groups gather to chat. At the punch-bowl, white-coated mess at- tendants are kept husv serving refresh- ments. Before long, the receiving line hegins to form, and soon you and your " date " are in the group waiting to be presented. You feel a little shaky for a moment, but as you step up to the head of the line, you find vour voice and your confidence and make the introduction without a hitch. Smiles, greet- ings, handshakes, as you pass along the line. Finally you come to the end. and you ' re on the floor dancing, able to breathe easily once more. During intermission, you stoj) for a cup of punch and a cookie or two. then go up- stairs for a seat in the balcony. There it is pleasant to sit and talk, watching the crowd move around below. When the second set begins, you waste no time getting back on the dance floor, because the evening conies to an end all too soon.

RING DANCE I ' lans lor our Ring Dance began to take shape months hefore the date set for this traditional Second and Third (Mass affair. The Connnittee hit upon a novel decorative theme, and then the work began in earnest. One group, armed with cardboard, sliears. paint, and mica chips, started turning out fish — fisli of rainl)ow colors, fish with gaping moutiis and cruel teeth, swordfish. sawfish. and fish that were never found in the sea. Committee had long been sketching designs. Another group was busily hammering and examining contracts, interviewing jewelrv sawing in the carpenter shop, building up a house representatives. central decorative motif. Other groups As the day of the dance arrived, we luir- were making up menus and checking de- riedly put the finishing touches on the tails lor prc-dance dinner parties, " riie King decorations. Each class began the evening ' s Ririfi ( ' rrrriKtny 1 festivities with a gay dinner party. The bahnv. warm weather was perfectly suited to tlie crisp, white service uniforms, the ladies ' spring gowns, tlie outside refresh- ment table on the lighted terraces. ' enter the dance, we walked through the gaping mouth of a huge fish with luminous, red eves. Inside, we found ourselves in a strange and lovelv world. Thick curtains of tur- (]uoise blue streamers covered the walls, and on this background were hung scores of weird, brightly-colored sea creatures. At the far end of the hall, on a rocky island, rose a huge, white lighthouse which cast rotating beams over the floor. Behind the lighthouse a vellow. luminous moon rose in a starry sky. while in front of it was the Ring, bathed in a spotlight, stone sparkling, sides glistening. In this gay atmosphere, the evening was all too short. Finally came the Ring Cere- mony, and you found yourself in the Ring, fumbling with the corsage you placed on your ladv ' s wrist.

In,lv 175 l-iruir „l Ihrils 11.,,, ) ,inl SUMMERTIME Wo have cnjoved our dances ami Academy social functions, but it is probably safe to say tbat tbe real measure of fun is found in the various informal g;atber!n :s wliicli oc- cupy our week-ends. In the w arm months of the year, sailing parties, beach parties, and picnics are frequent. Laden with picnic lunches, sweaters, perhaps a guitar, we set Sdliinhn (iflrrnn,,,! (liliiiii jKirlv out for Rocky Neck Park or Devil ' s lloj) Yard. There we discard all yestiges of the military and spend the afternoon exploring the woods, playing baseball, or taking a swim. Or perhaps we load our gear aboard a sloop, set the sails and cruise off to spend the after- noon on the river, soaking up sun- shine. Such affairs invariably turn out to be great fun and constitute one of the most enjoyable phases of Academy life.

However, some of tlie more rugged soids take keen delight in tlie crisp air and the swirling snow. In the late afternoon, the College Pond ah ays has cadets enjo ing the skating in a fast game of hockev or crack-the-uhip. Occasionally some ambi- tions group hires a big sleigh and enjoys an old-fashioned hay ride over the frozen country roatls. Another favorite mode of travel is that indulged in by the boxing squad. Come snow or freeze, roadwork is on schedule for the leather-pushers a couple of days each week. Main events of the season are the terrific snowball wars which are waged on the Parade Ground during the out-of-door recreation periods of exam week. ' t rt BARRACKS LIFE riic real substance of cadet life is found in and around the barracks, in the daily routine and in moments of leisure. There we do the same things day in, day out, living so close together that we get to know every- thing there is to know about each other. Wc shave together, eat to- gether, study together, loaf together, liuie everything we do b the same bugle calls 178 and bells. Monotonous though such a rou- tine nui become, still it fosters between classnuites a spirit of comradeship and lo - ait) that can be found nowhere else, and tlial s|tirit is one of the finest things in cadet life. in the " rec " rooms is lodged the spirit of each class. These rooms are more than just soft scats, a radio, and a few pictures. Thev arc lent a distinct personalitv bv each class that occu]»ies them. There are boisterous moments when furniture is turned upside (l(»wii and cushions fly, quiet moments wIk ' ii everyone reads or dozes, social occa- sions when we entertain our " dates ' there, formal meetings at which we discuss class policy and Academy affairs. It is there that the various classes fimction as units, and there that class spirit grows. Manv things go on in the wings of the barracks which arc not strictly " regula- tion " . It is a natural reaction to monoton- ous routine to seek diversion. Often we may be found doing foolish things, shouting with glee over them. Swabs frequently bear the brunt of our constant search for diversion. 1 here arc " chariot races " in the corridors, " praise Allah " sessions in the rooms before (piizzes. and occasionally " rowing " races in the washbowls. For weeks before Christ - Flifxiili- fiiiihi-rinti iliuhiii Christnuis I.fdtf mas there are groups of Swabs singing earols each night after release from stuth hour, and on the night hefore we sho c off on Cluisinuis leave. First Classmen nun hang out a stocking or two to be filled. i am time other than during stud hour there maybe heard the usual shouts of ' llou inan Tltr Admiral comes ahtxtrd — ttrifirli i, ' if " It Came Lpiin ii liiliiii:hl Clear ' flags ' " . " Ilow much time ' . ' ' " ' , or " What ' s the good wordy " , all of which are appropriately answered in boisterous unison t all Swabs within hearing distance. In the rooms it is not all study and grind. Sometimes there are frosty bits and coca-colas surreptitiously stowed on the outside window- ledge to carry us through a study hour. There mav be a birthday cake or a box of eand lately arrived from home, usually to the delight of the entire class. One can always find a hull session, or, failing that, can start one. Classmates drop in and drape themselves over chairs or window-sills, or, like Normie, l ass out on a bunk. Any subject — jokes, books, dates, cruises, war, religion — of im- portance or inconsequence, ma be dis- cussed. The pattern of Aeademx life that we will recall wlieii our cadet days are a distant memory will be largely the pattern of everyday barracks life. 179 Cadets arc usually a bit uneasy about tiiese calls until they actually make one. I ' licn the gracious hospitality and friendli- ness with which they are received quickly removes the affa ir from the " duty " cate- {;;ory. and the cadets find it hard to make their visit a short one. A ahiable. as well as enjoyable, these calls almost invariably ex- pose the cadets to new ideas concerning the Service and Service life, so are a definite part of the Academy training.

Willi tin- Uacea- laureale and ( ioiiuiiciicriiicnl ( icrcmonies 182 of the coveted interclass plaque hinges on the outcome of these events, so competition is particularly keen. Outstanding among the social events of the year is the traditional Ring Dance of the Second and Third Classes. Springtime, white uniforms, ladies in siunmery gowns, and the Ring Ceremony make it a romantic high spot in the social program. The pre- sentation of the class ring marks the suc- cessful conclusion of another year and the assumption of new responsibilities and privileges. Of especial interest to visiting families and friends are the drill competitions, w here the result of the year ' s work is shown in individual, platoon, and companv competi- tions. The individual competition is a drill- down at Manual-of-Arms, each class being represented by the two men winning an elimination contest. Platoons and com- panies are put through a given series of maneuvers luider the watchlul eves of Armv. Navv. and Marine Corps officers mIio act as judges. The winning individual receives a cup as " Best drilled Cadet " . while the commanders of the winning platoon and companv are presented cups for their respective units. On Sunday, the Corps parades to the Coliiinii II f Sijiiiiils Tlw Lust March gymnasiiini for the Bac- calaureate Service. Aided by a number ol the min- isters of New Londons churches, the (Jhaplain conducts the last service of the year and presents a Bible to each member of the graduating class. Finally comes Gradu- ation Day. and the Battalion forms oti the Parade Ground for the final Parade. Hearts are full as the Battalion passes in review and each first classman does " Eyes Right " for the last time as a cadet. The Ueview over, the Battalion is dismissed anfl classes group together to parade to gymnasium for the Commencement Exercises. On the stage are assembled high-ranking Coast Guard offi- cers and visiting dignitaries, while in the audience are proud families and friends. Awards of prizes to members of the gradu- ating class are made, and following the graduation address, flijdomas and com- missions are fiiiallv presented, riie cere- mony is comj)leted as all join in singing Alma Mater, dearest of all Academy songs. Then follow happy hours of congratula- tions and well-wishes, the Superintendent ' s lawn part . weddings, and the Commence- ment Dance. So another class completes its training, exchanges the narrow stripe of the cadet for the broad stripe of the com- missioned officer, and goes forth to a new life.

If " monotony is the weak acid that rusts men " , the Coast Guard offers un- limited opportunity to those who prefer to stay vigorous in mind and body. Life at sea is itself a life of constant change and occasional hazard. To the sea-going back- ground, add the multitude of changing national interests and progressing mechan- ical techniques with which an officer must keep abreast, and the completed pattern is a life of action limited oidy by the individual himself. It-fhrrfi fnitii Cntirr Tahttt ' ■■ 1 n ' ■• f - • -J- - ■ ggg| 5 awi ::t " a ir ■ - ' - sa i V -- Jm Ir ' ■■■■ ' BSSS : ?i This limit is independent of financial matters; no matter how much effort an officer puts into his work he gets no more pay than if he had done somewhat less. He measures his success in life by something less tangible than a bank balance. His yard- stick is the personal satisfaction that he derives from doing his job completely and Ar, m,ml,r, „( ihr Cmsl Ciiiinl ens in; lor teci in, are properly. As he leaves the A(ii lem . the uiii i ensign faees a hroad field orop| ()rIiinity lor service. His first assignments will he to sea duty ahoard the larger Coast Guard (Gut- ters. There his theoretical knowledge ol leadership, professional duties, and seainan- shi[ will he tempered and developed h practical experience. Iliere will he ice patrols, distress calls, law enforcement activities, and gunnery exercises. After two Hcsriir hv lirrcclirs lino - I ' hinr titni j)inii Ittirricaiw u ' driiiriii years on deck, he will spend a year in the engine room. Then he may be assigned to some special detail, such as aviation train- ing or a continuation of engineering train- ing, depending upon the aptitude which he has shown along these lines. Opportimities for taking up such subjects as naval archi- tecture, marine engineering, radio, and law in post-graduate courses at leading colleges are provided for those meriting the Nf)rk. 189 In evaluating his career, an ofTicer nuist consider many intangible compensations. A sea-going life is not one which will ap|»eal to all. It is a vigorous, fretjuently uneom- fortable life, full of personal inconveniences, punctuated by emergency patrols which in- terfere ith shore routine and plans. But its uncertaintv is more than offset by a security offered few men in other walks of life. It carries its rewards in pride in the traditions and accomplishments of the Service, in the attainment of a mode of living which allows physical and mental range and eliminates the possibility of " stagnation " . B« ' ond that is the pleasure derived from the fellowshi[) which develops among men who live with a common pur- pose, and the deep personal satisfaction one feels in devoting his life to the service of countrv and humanity. liijiiivJ niiiii l)ciii!i Irdiiyijrrn ' il fniin slii ) to C.ousl (Uiard plane Co-i:ililo,s MrClrUniul nml l-Milr TIDE RIPS STAFF The production of this Tidk Hips has hroii iht inucli vahiahic experience to those ol us who ha ( ' had a liand in it.
