To describe the Academy's curriculum, life and atmosphere,
And to mark our entry into the Coast Guards Commissioned Corps.
We hope the book will answer, in its own way, the many questions held by friends and

THE RING pictured here is a Visible symbol of tradition. It has two seals, one on
each side, which are joined at the bottom by symbolic locked anchors. Under each seal
we find the motto representative of the unit for which it stands. Beneath the Academy
seal are inscribed the words Scienfiae Cedar ZVlmfe,' below the seal of the class of '41, the
phrase Carpe Diem. The wearer of the ring has the class seal and motto inside so that he
can see them during his Cadet days: a constant reminder of the bond uniting him with
his classmates. With the receipt of a commission on Graduation Day, the Academy side
is turned inward and remains there as a reminder of his bygone Cadet days.

NAVARRE is one of our outstanding athletes. ln addition to earning ten letters in varsity sports-
in football, basketball, and tennis'-Navarre has always found time to beat the field in ping-pong. l-le
has also distinguished himself in other fields. I-le has numbered his share among the fair sex, managed
to do better than well enough in class, and won his stripes in the Cadet Battalion. King is known to us
all as a great practical joker, and he has never been known to turn down a bet. Seamanship is his pet
subject. Prior to his cadetship he demonstrated his proficiency in this line as a sea-scout instructor at a
summer camp. Navarre has a personality of which we are all envious. ln acquiring friends he is most
accomplished, of course, all of his friends are of a high caliber comparable to his own. The excellent
entertainment given the class by his Panama-bred, Boston-schooled beauties on our stops at Balboa,
C. Z. will never be forgotten. Strangely enough, this lad, though one of the younger men in the class,
has exerted a steadying influence on us all,' and has often prevented us from taking a misstep. This
quality should prove invaluable to him in what promises to be a brilliant career.

WHENEVER a number of individuals come together, one member of that group will inevitably
become the outlet for the ideas of the rest. As Class President Brush has been our outlet for two years.
Considering his natural ability to give orders and the possession of an almost unlimited amount of
nerve, his position of Battalion Executive Onicer seems a natural reward for three years of fruitful labor,
Probably very few members of the class possess Chris' business ability. He first showed this ability as a
member of the Ring Committee, but it was not until he became Business Manager of TIDE Rnvs that he
found an opportunity to give it full play. One of our mottoes has become, "If you want a discount, let
Brush buy it." His flair for business can also be seen in his work as boxing manager. And speaking of
athletics, Chris did find time to earn two soccer letters and to captain the team this fall. All these extra-
curricular activities might prove disastrous to an ordinary man, but apparently they just' act as a stimu-
lant for Chris. His number two academic position seems to have suffered no hardship because of outside
work.pAn associate member of the "Jane Addams Club,', and a well-acquainted man elsewhere, Brush
spends few liberty hours in Chase Hall. Full of energy and brains he is a welcome addition to any
gathering, be it for business or pleasure. A very useful as well as pleasant sort of fellow to have around,
Brush fulfills all the requisites of a good shipmate.

EL EB ALBERT CHUCK
COLLINGSWOOD, NEW JERSEY
INTRODUCING our only fugitive from Jersey, a man who manages to retain an incongruous
combination of serious conscientiousness and an exuberant light-heartedness which somehow just fails
to keep him out of trouble. From the very start, Elmer promised to be a valuable asset to the Academy
and to the Service. Svvab year activities on the gridiron had Connecticut sports' writers reserving an
honorable-mention berth for Elmer on their All-State team. Unfortunately his football career was
abruptly cut short by a serious injury incurred in the first practice game of the '39 season. Elmer's
talents are not confined to the gridiron, however. Our 'Joisey Kid" will long be remembered for the
pleasant jam sessions he led so ably with his trumpet. Never one to be satisfied with the increasingly
frequent escapades of the class, Elmer novv and then kicked over the traces and launched a fevv on his
own hook. ln a mild blow-off of patriotic fervor on Independence Day he secured the vice-presidency of
the 50 Club. I-lis brief but decisive engagement with the Fifth Avenue pigeon will long be remembered.
The typical-"Gee fellers, l've just got to study. Deanna Durbin? l-ley, Wait for me"-exemplifies his
none-too-intimate contacts with academics. Your service days have just begun, Elmer, but '41
would find it impossible to place more confidence in any other individual. Good luck.

FROM across the Rockies, vvith California written all over his shining countenance, came this
true son of the Golden West. Along with him came a grim determination and an unbending will-to-do-,
not only vvell, but to the finish. This salient quality has carried Bob along the bumpy road of academic
life with smoothness and grace. In his manner is a firmnessg yet his speech is soft. Prom California deer
country to New England farm country vvas just another link in Bob's endless chain of adaptability.
Winter sports of ice-skating and skiing became second nature. Forced to give up hunting Qhe'll still
launch a discourse on the subject at the slightest provocationl he has turned to the soccer field Where
he has collected a varsity letter each year. Baseball also had a place for him until We dropped the sport.
A bad nose retired this middlevveight from boxing. To many it is a source of amazement how he keeps
abreast of all his academic requirements and yet is Number One man out the gate on liberty. The
better informed can tell you that he does twice the Work in half the time amid the peaceful surroundings
on Ledyard Street. There is no doubt that he has a real incentive there. So keep your stride Bob, the
pace is perfect. The pattern you have cut from life is as suitable to you as you to it.

Dons Michigan need a Chamber of Commerce? No, it has George W. Girdler, a walking testi-
monial to the beauties and perfections of the Wolverine State. In addition to being an advance agent
for Michigan this artistic soul has shown us all how to be a real pal in any and all circumstances.
Although we haven't been able to admire George for his snappy QD manner of handling mechanics and
physics problems, we have admired him for his solution of life's problems, he is a sincere, trustworthy
classmate who always places the welfare of others first. I-Iis interest in people hasn't been confined to
his classmates for he has been a pal to every eligible young lady at Conn. College and points north,
west, and south. All of us have sympathized with George, as in Rio, Halifax, Havana, and Los Angeles

Unfortunately, in the year that he was to Hcome into his own" as a football and basketball player he
was taken out by that nemesis of athletes-a bum knee. We've all laughed at his hair trick, although

AND ON our right we have Bob, sometimes known as R. Catlin. His military and patriotic nature
is frequently demonstrated by the snappy salute which he renders to the monument of Quincy granite
in Hodges Square. As any of his room-mates can tell you, he not only sings but is also a Walking library

MAnYLAND's gift to the Coast Guard-that's Russ. We've known him ever since the days when
he had some hair, and that was yemfr ago. His life in Annapolis had already made him wise in the ways
of uniforms. In stormy class meetings, it was usually Russ who appealed to reason, and many are the
times when his extra year's-worth of knowledge about the Academy made things a lot easier for the
rest of us. After the first cruise, we agreed that South America was sacred, after the second, B. R. was
a real-estate expert with a mortgage on an air castle in Spain. An amazing ability to meet people and
make friends has insured him a good time at every port, even at New London. Love of magazines, letter-
writing, and bull-sessions has damaged his marks somewhat, but the results of a few re-exams prove be-
yond all doubt that he can produce in an emergency. His major athletic achievements include covering
the distance from Connecticut College for Women to Chase Hall in 2:28, as well as doing a good job
of managing both the sailing and basketball teams. The first train out to New York each leave won't
be the same without Russ along, but we'll have the comforting knowledge that he is doing bigger and
better things in the social world, wherever he goes. He has all the makings of an excellent oflicer, and
that swishing sound we'll hear before long will be Russ going places-fast!

UP FROM the home of the beautiful peaches came this "cracker," first stopping long enough in
Maryland to become civilized and lose part of his "Gawga" drawl. Joe is the infant of the class, but
has managed to shed most of his hair along with the rest of us. Nor has his tender age held him back,
Joe has attained the number one position in the class in both academics and spots during his stay here.
His is a talent for doing things thoroughly: witness the yacht club episode in San Pedro last summer.
A cross-country plugger for four years, he was chosen captain for the past season. Joe started out a "red
mike" but the last two years have witnessed a decided change. HY quien sabe?" As a room-mate, Joe
leaves little to be desired. He is always ready to lend a hand with work or to sacrifice five bucks if he
has it. His keen wit is an asset to any bull-session. He has a riposte for any and every chance remark.
Or if the subject happens to be a serious one, don't go away, for he takes them all in his stride. If you
want a swell companion for liberty or leave,J. L. is your man. However, you must expect excitement,
for it always comes his way. We'll never forget his liberties in Saint Thomas, Balboa, and Norfolk, or

JIMMIE brushed the vvheatfields and dust-storms of Kansas out of his hair and cast his lot with
the Coast Guard in 1937 vvith the rest of us. That high forehead immediately gave us the impression of
dignity and calmness which has lasted unchanged through four years of constant stress. His memory for
formulae is famous, as is his stock expression before a quiz, "Don't joggle me, l might forget some-
thing." Jimmie is one of our best pluggers, and he keeps a nice margin of safety over that fatal 65 by
constant hard vvork. Despite his advancing years, he has vvon letters consistently in tvvo major sports
and was once practically a one-man class tennis team. A certain birthday party proved conclusively his
ability as a host, and the Academy affairs plus those leaves in New York give him our vote for the per-
fect guest. Perhaps his greatest claim to fame lies in the Wonderful vvay he has handled the supply de-
partment this year. But vve'll also remember his collection of hair-growers, his cheerful smile, and the
thoroughness that marks everything he does. For one vvho had seen nothing more seagoing than a
prairie schooner before he joined the Coast Guard, Jimmie is surprisingly competent on the high seas.
His miniature ring is no longer with us, but we understand that it is in excellent hands. When the cry
of "Douse that light" no longer rings through the "rec', room to greet his gleaming brovv, vve'll Wish

W. R., ALTHOUGH one of our younger members, has many achievements he can chalk up to
his credit. Due to his fatherls change of occupation, Walter is one of the few people claiming to be an
Army Brat and a Public Health Service Junior at one and the same time. Although he does not say much
in public, we infer from what he does say that his mind is ever alert. He manages to learn some facts
that are unknown to most of us and with cold logic to forecast the outcome. More often he is right,
occasionally he is wrong. In private he is quite talkative. His roommates will remember many hours of
precious study periods wasted in idle, yet interesting conversation. Besides expressing his thoughts well
in speech, he can express them well on paper,-to the greater glory of the Tim-3 Rlps staff. On the cruise
we found out that he is a good watchmate and navigator. lt is still a mystery to us how he obtained
fixes that checked with those of the ship's navigator as closely as two-tenths of a mile. Being a charter
member of the "Jane Addams Clubf' he spends few of his liberty hours within the limits of the Acad-
emy. In our associations with Walter, we have come to know that there is a great capacity for work
and accomplishment in him.

HULL, Mass., has lost a good man to the Coast Guard in the personage of that "Grand Old Man
of Academy Boxing," McGuff. His quiet way and his reputation for having that famed Massachusetts
characteristic of saving his sheckels both have made him outstanding. But Jim, having given away
many shirts off his back, has been the best "wife" and classmate one could hope for. In the line of sports
McGuff is best in the squared ring, having been in the 165-pound class for four straight years. His fight-
ing Irish heart has kept him in there to win the majority of his encounters with the best men the Eastern
Intercollegiate could send against him. On our nrst cruise Jim had the rest of us buffaloed by hanging
out in the first class quarters while the rest of us were learning the fundamentals of seamanship behind
a holystone. But our last cruise found him right in there helping our numb brains out of engineering
and navigation problems. His was the intellect we always sought for correct and complete answers.
But, alas, at the end of four years, as our Cadet Cruise comes to port, we find that our former Nred mike"
is on the leash now, and wedding bells soon will be tolling for this future admiral. Judging from the

FROM the sunny clime of Dixie-land into the class of '41 came this gentleman from North
Carolina. We'll never forget the way he counts cadence. His "ra't heah, sirl' distinguished him at foot-
ball practice from the first day, as did his ability to play this game called football. One of the weirdest
spinners of yarns in the class, Mac could always get an audience even after the audience started picking
their feet off the deck. Some of the cases he cited in law class about the hogs getting into the peanut
patches down in North Carolina have become legal classics. The oldest man in the class, Mac was also
one of our biggest snakes until the middle of third class year. Since then he has been a changed man.
Most of us didnit think such a thing was possible, but now Mac has most of us thinking maybe we
should fall in love too. As a practical joker he has few equals. He is always willing to pull a good gag
on somebody, and he never gets sore when someone retaliates. A real man, and a natural gentleman, he

So VARLED and unpredictable are his abilities and interests that no catalogue of them will ever
be complete, those we have discovered in the past four years, however, define a personality as sound as
it is surprising. "Damnation," says he, "they can't make me study all the time!" and, so saying, picks
up a magazine or departs on liberty. It is not this spirit which amazes us, but the grip he retains on his
studies with the expenditure of so little mental effort. Can this stern from the cultural background
Jeremy has acquired from diverse and extra-curricular adventures into the philosophical and the ab-

SOME people become seamen with little effort, some labor to become proficient, but a few are just
born salty. This lad is among the last group. Reared in Washington, D. C., Harry was well versed in the
amenities long before we knew him. His attachments to the fairer sex come and go, but Barrel is seldom
in the Red Mike category. His hearty laugh and his sparkling, sincere and jocular personality have won
and will win him many friends. He is seldom embroiled in arguments, too often he is right. No one has
had more nicknames-Barrel, Huntmeister, The Bass, H. F., and Good Time Charlie, for instance. He
prefers the handle "Baron von Fritz," a dedication to his acknowledged ability as a Prussian drill-
master. Although Harry played football, basketball, and baseball he failed to come into his own until
soccer was enthroned here. These last two years he has been the spark plug of that team. No one has
contributed more to interclass sports. As a senior life-saving instructor he is always willing to give aid
to those of us who need instruction. Because he has always been a loyal classmate and has approached
what we think of as the ideal cadet, we know that he will make an excellent officer.

DURING one short fall semester in 1937 an i'Army Brat" was changed into a Coast Guard cadet.
When Vic first came to the Academy, he wasn't sure that he wanted to remain. He had heard a lot about
West Point, and to go there had been his one ambition. However, when he found out that the danger of
flunking out of the Coast Guard Academy was not too remote, he forgot about the Military Academy.
He rapidly re-aligned his plans and ambitions and fought hard to stay. His experiences in being ruled
by a bugle-in Hawaii, Virginia, and the Philippines-stood him in good stead, and his transition from
soldier to sailor was made with ease and with the confidence of a man who knows whathe wants. Frank-
ness is his outstanding characteristic. We all recall his "Sir, I don't understand that," in the classroom,
and his emphatic "Well, I don't think so," in the bull session. Until a memorable first class cruise
V. A. G. was impartial toward the girls, he liked all the eligible ones. Since that cruise he still likes
them, but he is my partial towards one, Always a welcome addition to any form of activity, from a
class party to a struggle with a physics experiment in the lab, Vic is certain to be equally welcome in
the service, both in the wardroom and on the bridge.

John is probably the quietest. However he is the most active in extra-curricular activities. ln addition
to his activities as co-editor of this book, President of the A. A. A., and leader of the Cadet Orchestra,
Johnny has found time to run on the cross-country team for four years. His calmness never leaves him-
even in adverse situations, but, at the same time, he is a very hard person to influence. Many have been
deceived by that placid exterior only to find that the owner has a most definite will of his own. john
possesses an admirable ability to lead without making any commotion about it. Definitely intellectual,
with a quiet humor and proven versatility of his own, we feel that he is ready to make his mark
in the service. Judging John on the record of his achievements here at the Academy, we draw but one
conclusion: wherever he goes his broad interests and abilities will prove an asset to his shipmates.

As We Were
ln the heat of late July, in '37, forty-nine young men
converged on New London, hammered at the Academy
gate, and were admitted to membership in The Class
of 1941. Full of exuberance and high purpose, we pro-
ceeded forthwith to the conquest of new fields.
Because the Class of 1937 was slated for a belated
graduation, in September, we spent about six weeks
one grade lower than a swab. Yes, we were fifth class-
men with a class of junior ensigns here to guide us.
Soon studies and drills engulfed us. Bright spots to be
remembered: week-end cruises on the CHASE out in
Long lsland Sound, giving us an introduction to prac-
Septemberzjoe Kennedy made a speech, '37 gradu-
ated, and we advanced to the lowest rung on the slip-
pery ladder to success. This promotion made us full-
fledged swabs, and as such, we found no dull moments
in our lives. Spring came and, gosh, we were romezloing
now! Third Classmen! Thus distinguished, we com-
menced our first practice cruise. July of '38 found us
with holystones in our right hands, soogee buckets in
our left, "rolling down to Rio" on our first i'pleasure"
cruise. Before we saw New London again we were
plenty salty, and each and every man had been certified
a Hshellbackn by Old Neptune himself.
After Sep leave in '38 we breezed along with the
Hurricane-our path strewn with gripes and trees. We
wound up the following Spring with our miniatures
and twenty-five slightly worn but undaunted members.
Gur Second Class cruise, made on 165-foot patrol
boats, took us to Halifax and the New England coast.
This was a pleasant relief after a hot summer of class
rooms and lab work on Materials, Naval Construction,
and Juice, and to some of us, at least, it brought ex-
periences that will never fade.
We returned to the Academy in the fall of '39 not
only with a flock of memories, but also with a height-
ened sense of responsibility and with a better realiza-
tion of the meaning of professional competence. Life
became busier, and our academic work assumed
clearer objectives. We ourselves had become a sav-
vier-or a warier-bunch. I
Another spring : First Classmen now, we boarded the
practice squadron for a cruise marked by work and
study, but sprinkled with many pleasurable mo-
ments. As we worked together as junior officers on the
cruise we saw ourselves and our responsibilities in a
new and clearer light.
In the fall of '40 twenty-two of us returned to the
Academy after a well-earned Sep leave to take over the
reins. A long awaited day had come and we swung into
our first class year. The largest Battalion in the
history of the Academy was ours to guide and govern.
A very full year of work coupled with more liberty
hours in which to play brought us, finally, to our

SHORTLY after vve complete our last march to Billard Hall, the Class of '42 will
slip into our niche in the Battalion, a niche that progressively has become more im-
portant in recent years. So numerous are the key positions in the enlarged Battalion that
our small class has been unable to fill all of them. Therefore many a member of the
second class has already proved his ability to handle successfully positions which norm-
ally go only to first classmen.
Experience and ability in '42 is a proven fact. To us it seems to be a foregone con-
clusion that their capable hands will manage well everything that comes their vvay.
Good shipmates and equally good subordinates, the Class of '42 has all it takes to step
into the responsibilities and headaches that go With the first class stripe.

WHEN the Class of '43 entered the Academy two years ago, it had about the same
number of members as the three upper classes combined. It continues to be a large class,
exceeded only by '44. ln the indoctrination of the latter, each individual member of the
Class of '43 has ably helped put into effect the new system that was instituted last year.
Many of their number have filled the junior petty officer positions in the Battalion. In the
performance of their duties and in the carrying out of new policies, these men have shown
their competence and loyalty. Next year will bring to them new and fuller responsibilities.
We feel that their duties in the administration of the Battalion will be capably per-

THE Class of '44 has the distinction of being the first trained under the Battalion's
revised plan of indoctrina We believe the system's practical benefits are reflected by
the proficiency of this class. A few days after we graduate, the men of ,44 will embark on
their first cruise. But they won't be entirely "at sea"5 the Service indoctrination, sea-
manship, and other practical knowledge given them in the Battalion will stand them in
With their own preliminary swab training reinforced by the experience of a cruise, '44
should be particularly well-equipped to help train next year's swabs. We are happy to
leave this share of the work in such good hands,

AT the end of the Academy's course of instruction, which is on a par with that of the leading
engineering colleges, a cadet receives a Bachelor of Science degree. Much of the success of this cur-
riculumis due to the work of the Advisory Committee consisting of Professor I-I. L. Seward of
Yale, Dean W. Barker of Columbia, Dean H. E. Clifford of Harvard, Professor G. E. Russell of
M. I. T., and Judge T. W. Swan ofthe U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals, New York City.

During his first summer the new cadet takes college algebra and trigo-
Lieut. H. s. sam , , . ,
nometry to supplement the work required on his entrance examinations.
His next two years cover analytic geometry and differential calculus, integral calculus, differential equations,
mechanics, strength of members, and a series of lectures on harmonic analysis.
The Mathematics courses are designed to give the cadet a proper background for handling the problems he
will encounter not only in his other academic work, but also later on when he becomes an officer. Application
of mathematical knowledge to courses in engineering, navigation, physics, radio, and gunnery takes this knowl-
edge out of the category of sheer theory and gives the cadet a valuable weapon in attacking service problems
throughout his career. -
Among the multitude of subjects in which an officer of
the Coast Guard is expected to be proficient, one of the
more important is Maritime Law. A broad understanding

governs our lives to such an extent that the course in law Head of Department
given here is invaluable to the cadet both in his civilian
connections and in his Service career.
Thus there is nothing cut-and-dried in the Academy's law course, the connection between the course
and active service is made so apparent that law becomes a living subject.
First the cadet proceeds through texts on elementary law and evidence followed by a series of lec-
tures and case studies from Coast Guard Courts and Boards. During the spring term he studies Head-
quarters' course on Coast Guard Law Enforcement, after which follows a period when the various
statutes contained in "The Navigation Laws of the U. Sf' are presented. Finally, actual practice in
court procedure is obtained in a mock Coast Guard Court, with cadets acting as members ofthe court,
prosecutors, attorneys, witnesses and recorders. So on a practical note, this course closes, having
drawn the cadet closer to the Service and to the laws governing the merchant marine.
During the entire course emphasis is placed upon the legal aspects of Coast Guard duties. The
purpose of the course is not to make polished court-room lawyers of cadets but to furnish them a prop-
er background for later law enforcement work as officers.

The Coast Guard's modern tools are intricate machines. Engineering knowledge is a primary requisite
for all officers-on deck, in the engine-room, and in the air. Such knowledge must be precise, well-
correlated, and practical.
On this assumption the Department of Marine Engineering built its plan of cadet engineering edu-
cation. As a Fourth Classman, a cadet spends two terms on Engineering Drawings and Descriptive
Geometry. On his Third Class cruise he spends a third of his time on engineering duty, learning his
way around the fire-room and engine-room, making sketches, and learning the purpose and general
characteristics of the engineering equipment. During the Third Class year he takes Shop, which includes
work on the lathe, drill-press, shaper, and milling machine. During the Second Class summer come
Naval Construction, Engineering Materials, and Diesel Engines in conjunction with laboratory work
and field trips to near-by industrial plants. During the Second Class year the cadet studies Thermo-
dynamics and Heat Engines. On his First Class cruise he is given engine-room experience and studies
the propelling machinery and auxiliaries. In his First Class year he studies Boilers, Naval Machinery
and Auxiliaries, Internal Combustion Engines, Turbines,
Marine Engineering Design, and Engineering Laboratory.
Since so many elements of a ship depend on electricity
for power, both theory and maintenance of A. C. and D. C.
electrical machinery are incorporated in the Electrical
Engineering Courses given the last two years. Electrical
laboratory parallels classroom work in these courses.

The Coast Guard brings scientific knowledge to bear upon almost
every aspect of its daily work. Modern science is dynamicg officers are
required not only to have an understanding of fundamentals but also
to keep abreast of a deepening stream of progress which science directs
toward service objectives. These requirements are met by the Acade-
my's Science Departmentg basic laws and principles in Physics and
Chemistry are studied and are definitely related to practical profes-
Fourth Classmen start in their work with a short, intensive review
of General Chemistry, whence they plunge into a more advanced
course. The fundamental principles of the chemistry of boilers, corro-
sion, paints, and explosives are studied. ln its second term the class
begins a course in Physics which extends to the end of Third Class

year. Most cadets agree that this subjects reputation of being one of
the Academy's toughest is Well-deserved. Light, heat, sound, mechan-
ics, electricity, and electronics are investigated. This broad scientific
foundation fits cadets to go on to specialized technical training in their
last two academic years.

A thorough Working knowledge of the intricacies of astronomical navigation
and the ability to handle a ship in pilot waters are "musts" in the tools of a
line ofhcer's trade. It is often said of the surgeon that he can make but one mis-
take-his last. The same is true of the navigator. He must know his position,
leave nothing to chance.
At the Academy, Navigation is a major subject. lt is studied in the classroom
for a year and a half and is practiced on two cruises. A basic course in spherical
trigonometry and general navigational methods leads to the study of astronomi-
cal navigation, the compasses, the use of all necessary aids to navigation and
finally culminates in three months of practical application at sea on a cruising
cutter. When a cadet has finished this course, which is very Well presented by
the instructors in the Navigation Department, he has a complete background for
his navigational work as an ofhcer.

Seamanship is learned only through practice and experience. Three cadet cruises and many hours in
the Academy's small boats furnish cadets an opportunity to acquire the art and skill of a seaman. To
enhance his general practical knowledge the cadet is given a series of lectures during "swab summer"
and takes Seamanship in the classroom during his last two years. Here the "Rules of the Road," the
"Watch OfHcer's Guidef' "Knights Seamanshipf' "Riesenberg's Standard Seamanshipf' and a course
in meteorology are studied. With this background the cadet is equipped to go out and face almost any
problem he is apt to encounter in the Service.

The Well-rounded Coast Guard officer is more than a navigator and an
engineerg he is a specialist in human relations. While it is no department of
psychology, the division of General Studies builds a foundation for sound
psychological judgment in dealings with both the men of the Service and
the outside public.
The tools for this development of the cadet's personality are taught form-
T ally in English composition and foreign language courses in the earlier
Lim- Comdf- 5- H' EVANS years at the Academy. Training in written and oral expression is a vital part
of these particular lines of studyg the good officer mmf be able to communicate his ideas to other people,
in coherent, concise, emphatic terms.
In the second year at the Academy a broad historical survey of western civilization complements the
increasing thoroughness of the scientific and mathematical courses with an understanding approach to
the question: "How did We get this Way?" Emphasis is placed upon the development of philosophies
Instructor G N BURON Instructor C. C. Comsy Instructor J. R. SHUMAN
and institutions which characterize the modern World.
With the third year, the course in the General Studies Department becomes somewhat
more specific. An attempt is made in the course, Contemporary Problems, to answer
realistically such questions as "what if happening?" and 'iwhat may happen?" Seminar
reports give practice in presenting ideas to a very critical audience-one's own classmates.
Finally, a detailed study of the seafaring world is made in Maritime Economics. Finan-
cial analysis of present-day shipping organizations, historical study ofthe maritime labor
situation, a functional classification ofthe many governmental bureaus linked with our
merchant marine-all these add up to a clear-cut picture of the Coast Guards relationship
to ships and men.

Never in history has the study of ordnance and
gunnery been a more important item in a cadet's edu-
cation than it is today. In 1941 these two subjects in-
clude a larger and more intricate body of knowledge
than existed during any past national emergency.
The cadet is introduced to small arms at the Cape
May range during his first cruise. On this same cruise
the acquaintance of larger guns is made during Short
and Long Range Battle Practices. With this practical
experience as a background the course of instruction is designed to cover the theory of interior and
exterior ballistics and the construction, maintenance, and control of the various batteries found in the
Service. As much theory and practice as possible is covered during this part of the course. In the last
academic year an analysis is made of the results of the firing on the cruise the previous summer. Study
of anti-aircraft control completes this interesting course.
When Cadets show visitors around the reservation, they almost always start
with the Academy library. Beautiful murals depicting historical phases of
Service activities, Cadets taking notes from reference texts or looking at current
magazines, shelves filled with biographies, histories, technical works, books re-
lating particularly to naval activities, and good fiction-all these things seem to
strike the keynote of life here at the Academy.
With the expansion of Service activities, the library is keeping pace. The new
addition will provide amply for ready access to both books and periodicals, with
provisions for housing more than 100,000 volumes, a special periodical and
browsing room, a reserve book and study hall, thirty special study carrells, and
the present library given over entirely to reference materials-all of which,
when available next October, will be further stimulusto cadets in their in-
creasing interest in the Academy Library.

Commandaut of Cadets
The Commandant of Cadets is the officer designated by the Superintendent to supervise cadet discipline,
activities, welfare, and records. He is the friend, critic, and adviser of the entire Corps. To a cadet, he is the
living symbol of Authority-The man with a "yes" or a "no" for every question.
The Tactical Officer assists in the maintenance of discipline, and is directly charged with supervising the
Battalion's military training and indoctrination. Under thisoHicer's guidance the Cadet Battalion Commander
carries out the Superintendenfs policies relative to such affairs.

Although the Maintenance OPf1cer's job is an exacting one, fraught with much work in the form of
innumerable specifications, contracts, telephone calls, files, blueprints, and inspections, it has been our
privilege to have Commander Olson give part of his time to instruct us in Metallurgy and Turbine
To Captain Whitney M. Prall, who has just reported as the new head of the department, falls
the duty of keeping all buildings, grounds, and equipment in good condition, of maintaining liaison
with other departments so as to anticipate their needs, and of supervising the construction of new Acad-
emy buildings and similar physical improvements.
The Cadet Battalion Supply Officer, a member of the Battalion Staff, is concerned with the supply,
maintenance, and repair of cadet equipment and quarters. Working in close contact with the Mainte-
nance Ofhcer, he maintains the necessary liaison between this officer and the Cadet Battalion.

Every Sunday at ten o'clock the Cadet Corps assembles in the quadrangle to march to chapel service
in McAllister Hall. This Weekly formation is a very popular one among cadets even though they may
attend one of the churches in Nevv London if they wish.
Chaplain Moore's non-denominational services are planned especially for the cadets, and his sermons
are characterized by a man-to-man approach. He is familiar with problems confronting cadets and
ofiicers, and his wide experience in dealing with Navy personnel enables him to offer sound advice and
The Chaplain's contact with the Corps is not limited to Sundaysg he regularly attends the athletic
events, and often goes sailing with cadets. He maintains regular office hours at the Academy, and cadets
are encouraged to drop in and talk over their problems with him.
Highlights of the spiritual year at the Academy are the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter services.
Each Easter the Academy offers its facilities to the people of New London and vicinity for the Sunrise
Service, in which the Chaplain is assisted by several local ministers.

To keep abreast ofthe exacting pace set for us here it is necessary to
Work energetically at least six days a week. The ability to maintain
efficiently the necessary output is directly dependent on our state of
health. It is the responsibility of the U. S. Public Health Service staff
and their assistants to keep the Cadet Corps physically capable of
performing its required duties.
The generally empty beds in Sick Bay are a standing tribute to the
thoroughness of the routine checkup system to which cadets are
subjected. The Medical Staff also teaches cadets first aid and hygiene.

The Cadet Battalion is the functional framework of the Corps and the medium for the
military education of cadets. Its organization follows that of a standard landing force
battalion. It is supervised by the Tactical Officer, under Whoseimmediate guidance the
Cadet Battalion Commander and subordinate cadet oflicers exercise a limited military
command. Each cadet's rank or rating in the Battalion is determined by the Weight of
responsibility which is entrusted to him, thus, the Cadet Battalion Commander is charged
with the Battalionis military training, indoctrination, efficiency, discipline, and morale.
The system offers cadets guidance and experience in matters pertaining to command duties,
staff functions, discipline, and leadership, and so better prepares them for careers of active

A Battalion Staff, comparable in size and function to the staff of a landing force battalion,
was organized this last year. This change was made necessary by the Superintendent's policy
of extending, under adequate supervision, the responsibilities of the Battalion command. .
The purpose of the staff is to advise and assist the Battalion Commander in the exercise of
his command duties. The Battalion Commander's chief assistant and adviser, the Battalion
Executive Officer, coordinates the staff into a smoothly working unit. Under him are other
cadet staff members: the Plans and Training Officer, the Adjutant, the Supply Officer, the Com-
munications Ofhcer, and the Battalion Chief Petty Officer.

This is the Cadet Corps' original-
and, until 1930, only-military unit.
Since that year two other companies
have been added and the Corps has been
formed as a battalion.
Commencing in 1931, "AH and UB"
have competed each year at Graduation
for the Alumni Association Company
Drill Trophy. Four out of ten wins have
come to UA", as follows:

Through the present year, ably com-
manded by Cadet H. S. Pearson,
Company has continued to show a high
order of proficiency and morale, with
visibly good results. ln inter-company
activities of all sorts, the company has
had its share of victories, and it has

As the Service grew, so grew the
Cadet Corps and in 1930 a new company
was formed. "B" Company got off to a
flying start in the Inter-Company Drills
-and has kept the lead to date:

This year, Cadet M. McLaughlin
commands the company and under his
leadership constant progress toward in-

made. Concerted effort has marked each

this can lead to superiority. Such unit
proficiency can only point to a united
front, which more and more is becoming
the working formula of the Battalion.
Recent enlargement of the Corps
brought with it the welcome addition
of a new company to the cadet battal-
ion, "C" Company. Always there has
been the keenest of rivalries be-
tween "A" and HB" Companies, and
"C" Company led by Cad-et H. F.
Rohrkemper now invades the field.
In inter-company athletics, which re-
placed inter-class sports, "C" has al-
ready taken the lead for the plaque
by winning the fall sport competitions.
Military competitions too, were won
by "C" Company last autumn. The
Company intends to complete its first
year in the Battalion with its new
guidon bedecked with ribbons and its
name inscribed on the cup.

Many of the things which occupy the time of
cadets cannot be exactly classified as military,
academic, or athletic. Lest these varied events
and occupations pass unnoticed, this section is
Written, for, being made up of tradition, duty,
and high spirits all together, they portray what
is perhaps a better picture of Academy life.
First on the list comes rowing. All hands get
a lot of practice in this ancient art, and the
chilly Thames river at 0610 is a sight familiar
to all cadets. A dozen boats racing back across
the river, each surging smoothly forward as ten
oars rise and fall in unison, coxins leaning on
the steering oars to make the turn into the slips,
the chains' rattling as the boats are hoisted
clear of the water, all make a picture which
will be long remembered.
Liberty is one activity that attracts the entire Corps. On
liberty days, liberty parties march to the gate every hour,
whence the cadets scatter to the four corners of New London.
The College, the movies, dates, the Martom, and an occasion-
al dance or party in town provide welcome pastimes until the
time limit is almost up. The last man usually skids through
the door of Chase Hall just as the clock ticks over to 0015.
On holidays when there is enough time, the barracks are com-
pletely deserted, since all the New Englanders go home, tak-
ing classmatcs with them. The fact that liberty is governed
by accumulated demerits furnishes all hands with an addi-
tional incentive to be "regulation,"
,WMM The recreation rooms play an important part for the
upper three classes, they are places for class meetings,
reading the papers in comfort, and listening to the
radio. On vveek-ends, guests may be entertained here,
and restricted men manage to find something here to
occupy their idle hours. The "rec" rooms are the closest
approach to the comforts of home in the barracks, and
they are seldom empty during the hours when they may
On November llth the Cadet Corps marches in New
London's Armistice Day Parade. This year the Corps,
cheered on by the city's populace, carried on the custom.
Thanksgiving brings with it an excellent meal and the traditional fourth class play, the latter being devoted to
razzing the upper classes with the sky as the limit. From the first of December until Christmas the fourth class
sings carols nightly in all the Wings of the barracks at tattoo. The last night before Christmas leave, the Glee Club
goes carolling, having snatched precious moments from exam Week to practice. They end up at the officers'
quarters on the hill, for a pre-Xmas party.
The Corps engages in a bit of ceremony
when the Congressional Board of Visitors
pays its annual call. They inspect the res-
ervation, and there is a full-dress revievv. The
Corps gives a luncheon in honor of its guests.
Graduation Week is no doubt the busiest
and best time of the year. Starting with the
pulling boat and sailing races, continuing
through the Ring Dance, the drill competi-
tions, formal retreats, and Baccalaureate
Parade, the Superintendent's lawn party, the
Graduation Review-to that Supreme Mo-
The opportunities for social activity in the life of a cadet are
many and varied. From the first little tea dance to the final Grad
Hop is a road with many a pleasant scene along the way. First
and most brilliant are the formal dances, where the fourth class
soon finds out two things that every upperclassman knows: one
can have a good time despite the full-dress collar, and the receiving
line is too friendly to hold terrors for anyone. Informal dances
are less colorful, more fun. Perhaps it is the absence of the "are in-
vited and will attend" attitude-we don't know-it may be be-
cause they are usually held the last week-end before pay-day-but
there is certainly something that makes most of the cadets show
up at all the informals.
Grad Hap with Mal Hallett
The class parties and picnics give each class a chance to get away from Academy routine for
a few hours and enjoy life thoroughly without the restraining presence of other classes. Mem-
ories of a dance where the floor wasn't crowded and where every man was a classmate, of a
picnic where the boys played left-handed softball to give the girls' team a chance, and of bus
rides back from the Devil's I-lopyard with everyone filled with hot dogs, smoke, and all the
trimmings that go with a temporary reversion to nature-these are the memories that still
will linger even after the present classes have made three stripes.
Whenever the Corps packs up and moves out bodily via buses to attend a football game,
everybody takes turns telling old jokesg and
after a while, all hands run through the com-
plete repertoire of cadet songs. More Academy
spirit comes out of such a bull-session on a bus
than out of a solid month of daily routine.
Receptions held in the officers' quarters on
'The Hill" give the Corps an idea of informal
social life in the Service and introduce the
cadets and their dates to the officers and their
Perhaps the most surprising experience of a
cadet's four years at the Academy is his first
formal call. This is usually one on "The Hill",
, and at the proper hour of four, accompanied by
his jittery room-mate, your cadet murmurs a
prayer and pushes the doorbell. With his knees
playing "Hail Columbia," he nervously enters
in response to a friendly invitation. He soon finds himself comfortably seated and conversing
easily on some intriguing subject which apparently came out of thin air. Finally, he glances at
his watch with a start, finds that the Emily-Post interval is up or long since past, so he leaves
his cards without even a fumble and returns to the barracks to report to inquisitive classmates,
"You ought to go up, yourself, it's all right."

Athletics are one great diversion from the hard grind among the text books. The spirit of
cooperation and the development of stamina, leadership, and physical courage are among
the finer characteristics which are enhanced by participation in one of the numerous forms
of athletics made available for cadets.
The Cadet Corps is small and the competition available consists of schools which have
enrollment up to several times that of our Academy. To meet this strong competition a
large percentage of the Corps must take an active part in some sport.
No athletic scholarships are given, and no marks are boosted. There are, hovvever, long
hours of practice, sacrificed liberty periods, sore bodies and sleepy evenings. Any cadet
who takes part in athletics beyond the time allotted for physical education, does so for
love ofthe sport alone. In spite of these handicaps the Academy sends forth good, clean,
hard playing teams which would be a credit to any school.

Academy Athletic Associa-
tion is composed of active

All cadets stand on equal
ground in the Association,
and many sports questions,
of interest to the entire
Corps, are settled at the
meetings. The association
elects cheer-leaders and mess
committees, supplies all ath-

pays referees of athletic con-
tests, and in general helps

The Monogram Club is composed of all athletes who have
won major or minor sport letters. Its purpose is to foster in
the Corps a spirit of good fellowship and sportsmanship. It
thus tends to build morale upon a firm foundation, and it pro-
duces that close cooperation between individuals which is
essential both in winning games and winning battles.
Among its activities, the Club assumes the pleasant obliga-
tion of meeting visiting teams and of extending to them the
courtesies of the Corps. Another popular "duty" of the Club
is to provide a graduation-week banquet. Generally this is
held at Norwich Inn. Here coaches, alumni, and athletes join
in song and story. At the banquet new members are wel-
comed and athletic awards are distributed. As a final gesture
the graduating members with a few words pass on the torch
to their successors and regretfully retire from active Academy

This year's football season vvas the best season the Academy has had for several
years. Under the supervision of an able coaching staff the cadets played heads-up foot-
ball for the entire season. With the prospect of a large entering class with nevv ma-
terial there is good reason to believe that this year's good record will be bettered next
Starting off the season against the University of Connecticut, the cadets played one

of the toughest teams on the schedule. The U. of C. started off the scoring by marching 40 yards to a
touchdown. Our team came back with a 62 yard march for a touchdown. When another drive was
stopped on the sixteen yard line the second quarter, Thompson booted a beautiful field goal from
the 25 yard line to leave the score at the end of the half 9-7 with the C. G. out in front of Connecti-
cut for the first time in the history of the rivalry between the two schools. In the last quarter, after
three running plays failed, Connecticut dropped back and kicked the winning field goal with but
two minutes left in the game.
The team came back from its defeat at the hands of Connecticut with decisive victory over
Worcester Tech. After recovering a fumbledf punt on the ten yard line in the second quarter,
Shepard threw a pass to Lawrence for the first touchdown of the game. ln the third period Thomp-
son kicked another field goal. Midway in the fourth period, with Worcester trying to score, Kincaid
intercepted a pass on Worcester's 37 yard line and ran the remaining distance to the goal line

without a Worcester man touching him.
The next week the Coast Guard team took on the
powerful Rensselaer team. Playing in the hot sunshine,
neither team did much gaining, though this was due
more to the defensive strength of both teams than to
the climate. It looked as though Drury's safety in the
second quarter would be the only score of the game,
until the fourth quarter when Schwartz of R. P. I. faked
a reverse from the 24 yard line and eluded the two cadet
tacklers who stood between him and the goal line.
Next week we played our traditional rivals, the Horsemen from Norwich. Before twelve
plays of the game had passed, Norwich had blocked two C. G. kicks and scored two touchdowns,
making the score 13-O. Then Shepard, Carter, and Thompson carried the ball down the field for
the first Coast Guard score. Norwich later recovered a fumble and scored on a pass from this point.

Soon after the second quarter started, Thompson kicked a Held goal from the 25 yard line.
Starting off the second half with a bang, C. G. took a punt on the Norwich forty-live yard line
and marched 45 yards to a touchdown. Shepard threw a pass to Sudnik who raced thirty-two
yards to score. just before the third quarter ended, Norwich scored on a pass. C. G. threatened
several times in the last quarter but never managed to push the ball over.
In the Trinity game the first score came following a forty yard drive with Thompson going over
from the three yard line. Trinity scored soon after the second quarter started, and again five minutes
later after a 53 yard drive. Later, Tibbits broke through the middle-of the line and raced 61 yards.
On a fake reverse Thompson scored. With but seven minutes remaining in the game Trinity took the
ball on her own 25 yard line and on passes moved the ball down to the 9 yard line, and then scored.

Scoring four times in the second half, C. G. beat a highly favored Wesleyan team the following week-
end. The game was played in typical "Coast Guard weather. " Wesleyan scored shortly before the half ended on a
pass. In the second half three first downs in succession and a spinner by Shepard gave C. G. its first score. Follow-
ing a penalty which gave C. G. the ball on the Wesleyan 21 yard line, Thompson moved the ball to the two yard
line in .three plays and on the fourth play fumbled just short of the goal line. The ball went on over and Day
became the high-scoring tackle on the team by recovering the ball. The third touchdown was sparked by Drury,
who intercepted a Wesleyan pass and ran it back to the Wesleyan 43 yard line. In three plays Drury and Carter
put the ball on the 20 yard line and then Drury took it over. The fourth touchdown came when Lawrence inter-
cepted one of Wesleyan's flat passes and ran the 35 yards to the goal without a Wesleyan man touching him.
The next week the team went up to Vermont to take on hapless Middlebury. Scoring almost at will, the C.
G. team, that had finally reached its peak, beat Middlebury 33-O. The long runs and beautiful plays in this
game were more numerous than in any other game, due principally to the down-field blocking that the team
had been doing in the last couple of games and which they almost perfected in this game.
In the final game, with the whole team clicking, Thompson and Shepard raced the ball for a 6-19 victory over

The Cross Country team again came through with the best record of the fall sports, winning three dual meets
while dropping two and placing fifth in the Connecticut Valley Championships. Under the very capable coaching
of Lieutenant Opp, the team was rounded into shape. The veterans were Bill and Jerry Rea, Banner, Jenkins, and
McGary5 the newcomers: Moreau, Emerick, and Jennings. After winning the opening meet over Worcester at
Worcester, the Cadet harriers returned to their home course only to meet defeat at the hands of Rensselaer.
Journeying to Amherst, the Academy got into the win column with a perfect score, the Academy runners, led by
the Rea Brothers and Moreau, garnering the first six places. Trinity fell victim with Bill Rea and Moreau coming
in together well ahead of the pack, Moreau proving to be the find of the season. At the Connecticut Valley Cham-
pionships, the Cadets ran up against a combination of stiff competition and tough breaks to place fifth, this
being the meet in which Jenkins broke a bone in each leg. Three days later a tired team returned to Wesleyan to
be defeated in the final meet of the season.

Swinging into the second season of intercollegiate competition the
Academy made a strong bid for the championship of Connecticut,
Worcester Tech found itself in a tie with the Academy at half time.
That score stood until the final minutes, when the Techites booted
three quick ones through to win. A few days later, the Cadets out-
played Clark to gain a victory, and then whipped Arnold in the first
home game. Gu the windswept Cambridge field, the Cadets over-
whelmed M. I, T.'s strong team. These successes brightened the
Cadet's prospect for taking the Connecticut championship. But
Trinity, playing in a driving rain which flooded the field, broke the
winning streak, and Connecticut copped the finale to dash our cham-

The Cadet Rifle Team's season got off to a slow start this year in the New England Intercol-
legiate Rifle League, but came out of the slump later in the season and turned in a few scores as
high as those fired by any Academy rifle team. The season closed with the Academy team in
number five position. In the Sectionals for the Nationals held at Woburn, Mass., the cadets
placed third, beaten only by Yale and West Point.
The cadets fired twenty shoulder to shoulder matches with teams in and around New London
and dropped only three, placing them third in the Mohegan League.
Topnotch rifle teams result when considerable material is on hand. Competition for a berth
in the top five naturally produces higher scores. Future Academy prospects look encouraging
inasmuch as Coach Taylor has managed to arouse more interest in rifle markmanship by im-
proving the already fine range facilities and by giving men new to the sport more practice under

With a new coaching staE and no graduation losses the basketball
team was aiming for a good season this year. Early practice sessions
and games indicated that the team would be strong in numbers and
teamwork, with little emphasis on individual play.
The season opened at home against a strong U. of Conn. five. After
leading 12-5, lack of seasoning turned the second half into a rout and
the team ended up on the short end of a 65-38 score. Following defeat
by a close margin, at the hands of Trinity, the team came back to beat

Assumption and Lowell Textile, gaining the reputation of being a
strong second half team.
In the first game away from home the cadets reached their highest
peak of the season, upsetting a highly favored Amherst team by the im-
pressive score of 48-39. Hopes ran high for the rest of the season, but at
Boston U. and Worcester Tech. these hopes were dashed as the cadets
lost both games.
Returning home the team lost two heartbreakers on successive nights
to Wesleyan and R. P. I.
After the Mass. State game the team went on to Northfield for the
last encounter of the season, 'against Norwich, traditional Coast Guard
rival. Although it came up from eight points behind in the last two
minutes to tie the game, the team lost out in the overtime 55-54.
The record of three games won and eight lost can hardly be called
impressive and fell short of earlier season expectations. However, this
fails to tell the whole story-five of the games were lost by less than
four point margins, and every game was a demonstration of fast ball
and good playing spirit.
Vaughn, Thompson, and Bradley provided the front line offense
with Norton- and Captain Ayers strong on the defense. The only gradua-
tion loss from the entire squad will be Ayers, so the prospects for next
year's team are most encouraging.

This year the boxing squad turned out with the
prospect of entering a team for the first time in the
Eastern Intercollegiate Boxing Tournament.
Coach McC1ernon's call for candidates was
answered by over eighty eager aspirants for skill
in this keenly supported sport, including the
veterans Captain O'Neill, McGarity, Ellis, and
Natvvig. The coaching staff immediately set out
to develop further the lettermen of the previous
year and to bring along those who were less
The opening meet brought the University of
Maryland's team to New London to test the
Cadets' strength. Four to three was the final score
in favor of the Terps, after the Associations Rules Com-
mittee decided that the 175-pound bout was "no con-
test," due to Maryland's entry having received an eye
cut during the first round. Maryland took an early lead
when Lincoln decisioned Cunningham, and Dorr took a
close one from Sutherland. Natwig won, taking every
action-packed round. Ellis lost to hard-hitting Alper-
stein, whose strong third round broke the deadlock.
McGarity outboxed Bachg O'Neill lost to Pyles in the
meet's best boutg and Goettel outpointed Lietes.
The following meet with Catholic University saw the
Cadets go big time, literally hopping to Washington
aboard a Flying Boat piloted by Lieutenant Tighe, who
captained the team in 1935. Although the team came out
on the underside ofthe score, it made a good showing as
all hands turned in heads-up scraps. The team here was
without the leadership of Captain O'Neill, whose arm
injury kept him out. Lawrence was outpointed by
Mandris, as was Sutherland by Bartone. Although Nat-
wig was besting Gaffney, the verdict was a draw when
the latter's eye cut forced a close. Drury brought back
shades of Sanders in aggressively outpointing Hughes.
McGarity decisioned Haskins. Coach McClernon rather
than risk an eye injury for Schmitz, gave C. U. a tech-

nical after the 65er's eye developed a bad mouse. McLaughlin was decisioned by Houck, and Davies
won his first varsity bout by never for a second turning the pressure off ringvvise Cody.
Again leaving home, the team beat Rutgers. Captain O,Neill vvas able to return to action this time,
and he punched out a vvin over extremely tall Schuster to close his Academy athletic career in a man-
ner beiitting one Whose fighting heart has carried him so vvell through many games and meets. Cun-
ningham, Meree, and Drury also outpointed their opponents. Schmitz began to emerge as a K. O.
artist by knocking out Hill in one round.
The team's showing at Rutgers was not of the same calibre
as its previous one in Washington, and on the following week
it did not improve, though Coast Guard had little trouble
winning over City College of New York. The cadets let the
New Yorkers take the play from them and heard, not un-
certainly about it, from Coach McClernon.fThis was evidently
what the team needed, for the next opponent, Western
Maryland, was decisively beaten, 6 to 1 with Drury, Schmitz,
and Emerson taking points via the KO. route.
The team gave promise of a good showing against powerful
Syracuse and did in fact bear it out, although they came home
on the short side of 7 to 1.
With the season all but behind them, and punching for an
even .500, the cadets worked hard to be in top form for the
lntercollegiates. The coaches took Lawrence, Natwig,
McGarity, Schmitz, Emerson, and Goettel to Syracuse for the
windup. The Academy's first participation in the big tourna-
ment was marked with no small success. However, ill luck hit
Schmitz and Natwig. Frank's broken nose prevented him
from going on, and John was hit hard by the grippe. At any
rate, the team returned home having an lntercollegiate
champion in undefeated Mark McGarity. Emerson, though
losing, put forth the tournaments liveliest scrap.
Most of the team this year were third classmen. The inter-
company matches uncovered some fine material and we are
confident that the Academy colors will be well carried in the
ring next year.

This year, with the exception of Captain Castronovo, Hutchins,
Lathrop, and Carkeelc, the team was made up entirely of third and
fourth classmen, who showed marked improvement toward the
end of the season. Inasmuch as the entire team is composed of un-
derclassmen, not a single man will be lost by graduation. Another
good omen pointing toward a much stronger team next year is
that prospects are good for having the largest fourth class in
Academy history from which to choose new material.

The spring of 1939 marked the beginning of the Academy intercollegiate tennis team. The
1939 Season was only fair with a green squad, but last year's team boasts of having the best
record of any Academy sport. On a windy day Trinity inflicted our only loss. The University
of Connecticut, which had not previously been defeated by the Cadets, was defeated tvvice by
scores of 7-2 and 8-1.
This year the team is coached by Mr. C. C. Colby. Under the captaincy of Navarre Ayers
the 1941 season is expected to be even better than last year's. Five lettermen return and there
are several good prospects in the fourth class. The schedule is practically the same as last
ycar's, and the tennis squad has an opportunity for a banner year.

In the last year sailing has become a sport of major in-
terest at the Academy. Through the efforts of Captain
Pine and Lieutenant Commander Moore the Academy
fleet has been more than doubled, making room for more
than one hundred men on the sailing squad. Additions to
the fleet this year were four new Parkman Stars, and
twenty-four international 12 foot dinghies, giving the
fleet a total of 46 racing craft.
One indication of the growing interest in the success of
the Academy Boat Club during the past year is evidenced
by the presentation of the "Coast Guard Bowl." This
trophy is presented by the Academy Alumni Association
to the winner of the annual New England championship
The Academy has many sailing meets and regattas on
its schedule. In the past our record has been very good.
Since there is more material on the team and each man
has a better chance of obtaining experience as a skipper,
we know that this enviable record will be maintained in

According to the laws of probability, only
9.4672 of the people who see our TIDE Ribs
will do more than fan the pages and look at the
pictures. However, for our discriminating
readers who want the story behind our pictorial
evidence, we submit our impressions of how it
happened back in the not-too-far distant days
when we were swabs. Four steady years of liv-
ing from day to day and trying to outguess the
instructor 6572, of the time have taken the edge
from some of those memories, but the bright-
ness of others will never leave us. Even among
ourselves, in the complete relaxation of a bull-
session, we fail to agree on the exact details, so
we shall present the high spots, just as we hit
them in those bygone days ....

And so it was that we bade South America a fond fare-
well. However, the cruise was still far from over. We
finally steamed into Hampton Roads, only to take on
stores and steam back out again two hours later. We
learned the joys of scraping shells. At Lynnhaven Roads,
as lowly thirdclassmen we did our part in battle prac-
tice, learning not to flinch when the guns fired.
From the shattering echoes of battle practice, we had
a one-day run to Cape May. We arrived at the height of
the season, both as regards tourists and mosquitoes, par-
ticularly the latter. We lay under a scorching sun, alter-
nately popping at the targets and the insect pests. The
Fifty Club acquired its first two members over in Wild-
wood. We left our hundred-odd pounds of lead and steel
lying on the bottom off the beach behind the butts, and
shoved off for New London.
With our last watch past and gone and the lights ofthe
Jersey shore winking at us far off to port we were per-
haps a little more quiet than usual, for each of us had
much to think about: home and leave, of course, but also
a realization that we still had much to learn about this,
our chosen work. We had successfully passed our first
trial by fire and were no longer outsiders looking in, we
wore the big cruise knot in our neckerchiefs, and we

The end of exams on Wednesday, 12 July, 1939, found the Class of
1941 thoroughly fed up with books and study, and ready to fare forth
on the high seas. We packed our sea bags with the eXpert's touch and
had high hopes that we would be able to find things later Without a
search Warrant. We were divided into two sections, thereby starting a
feud that lasted for the next month or so, assigned to the 165-footers
Tloetir and Gained, and shoved off for Gardiner's Bay at 1500 on Friday,
14 July, 1939. We anchored for the night, had a swimming party, and
proceeded to get thoroughly acquainted with the ships.
The next morning found us under Way and holding all the emergency
drills, reminding us that even on a reduced scale, a 165-footer can run
into trouble. That evening at Montauk, reports from our liberty-
hounds returning from shore indicated that the place hadn't changed
much since the happy days of the Cham: tvvo years before. We swam a
little and discovered that the steel decks of our floating home got hot
enough tofry eggs, and so made flaking-out irnpracticable.
We moved in to the dock and went to the Ditch Plain Surf Station
to learn how to rig a breeches buoy and how to handle a boat in the surf.
After watching the surfmen a time or two, we took over rescuing each other
from the drill tower with the breeches buoy and bringing the surfboat in
through the breakers. Those not otherwise employed tanned on the beach
or swam in the surf. Once the boat rode the crest of a wave right into the
middle of a group of swimmers, who promptly submerged until it was safe
to pop up and malign the character of the coX'n long and loudly. The next
day, the crews of the two ships had a breeches-buoy competition, which
the Tberif won by slightly less than a 1-second margin. That afternoon, our
officers took to the surfboat with us, and we had the rare privilege of ob-
serving them pulling ten-foot oars.
Late that afternoon, we left Montauk and proceeded to Newport. We had
off-watch liberty and so could go ashore any time when not actually on
watch, provided we were back by midnight. Our usual delegation went
ashore to see what there was to see. We sailed again early the next morning,
passing many beautiful estates and numerous yachts along our course. After
drills and watches, our faithful Diesels chugged us into the old whaling
city of New Bedford. We saw the Whaling Museum with its remarkable
collection-one which seemed to us to include everything from a whale's
hind legs to a quarter-size model of a whaling ship.
Thence, our little squadron went through the Cape Cod ship canal, we
all observed the famous Cape Cod architecture and the unusual vertically-
lifting railroad bridges. On across Massachusetts Bay we went, tying up for
the night at Provincetown. Here we took a tour of the general vicinity on
bicycles, our blue service making quite a contrast with the loose and in-
formal garb of the summer colony. When we returned to the ships, all that
we could see over the dock was the commission pennant, the tide having
fallen a full twenty feet in our absence. jk.

The next stop was the Salem Air Base, where we got a
chance to look over the air arm of the Service. We also took
a hop in one of the amphibians which gave our Bostonians
a chance to point with pride to their native fens and moors
below. Late that afternoon, we went on into Boston and
tied up just opposite the frigate Comtimtion at the Navy
Yard. Boston was perhaps the social highlight of the cruise.
Captain Shanley had a tea for us which was pronounced by
acclaim the best in our tea-spotted careers. We had a con-
ducted tour of the Navy Yard, where we saw destroyers
being built, chain and hawsers being made, and machine
tools in operation that could do anything but say "Uncle "
We also inspected the harbor cutter Rmfimn, adding to our
growing fund of facts about the Coast Guard. From Boston, we went to Portland for another one
night stand, and then pulled out for Bath to see the shipyards where our patrol boats had been
built. We ran into fog soon after leaving Portland, we anchored off the Kennebeck all day but the
channel remained obscured, and we went on toward Halifax. After an all-night run through the
fog, we arrived safely, raring to go ashore in our only 'Aforeign" port. We bought souvenirs to add
to our collection, experimented with any "foreign-looking" dishes on the menus, and sent post-
cards to everyone we could think of. The Public Gardens were very beautiful, and the designs
traced in growing flowers were unique. The Midshipmen had preceded us by a week or so, and most
of the Canadians thought we were a lost shipload of Middies. Some of the gang went out to Doc
Dawson's camp and had a taste of north woods life. We saw the schooner "Bluenose" and the old
harbor defense fort, as well as the country club and the town in general.
We headed south again, still in the fog, and, with the aid of radio direction-finder bearings and
a prayer, we reached Bar Harbor. There was a dance for us at the Shore Club, which was a welcome
change from our usual port-to-port routine. We left sometime in the middle of the night, put back
into Boston, picked up the mail, and, incidentally, renewed recent Hconnectionsf, Prom there, we
went southward through the Cape Cod Canal again and put into New London to get some badly-
needed pay. After a little bridge trouble, we made the dock successfully, and went up to the bar-
racks for a look at the brand-new swabs, much to their consternation.
Our next stop was New York, where we anchored off 79th Street with three cutters, two tenders,
and a lightship as part of a Coast Guard Day anniversary celebration. The World's Fair and New
York City both took a pretty thorough going-over at our hands. We later moved to the pier at
56th Street, from which operating base we finished our survey of the locality of New York. We saw
the Qzzeefz Mary and other liners as we left the harbor, and we took pictures of the skyline and the
Statue of Liberty to prove our tourist rating.
With the time-to-go getting down to a period reckoned in hours, we stopped one night in Port
Jefferson, swung ship and compensated the compass as we left, and anchored off Niantic. This was
the scene of the famous boat race, in the little, four-oared, single-banked lifeboats, we held two
elimination heats here and a hotly contested final race in Gardiner's Bay later. The Gfzlaztmlr boat
crossed the line first, but the finish line was not perpendicular to the course, so that the Thetif pro-
tested. Once again, we had something to argue on the long Winter nights for the next thirty years.
We stayed at anchor one last day to work on our notebooks and get all squared away, and then re-
turned to New London and disembarked at 0815 on Friday, ll August, 1939.
Our cruise on this type of vessel was the first of its kind cadets had taken, we were the guinea
pigs. We hope our records showed how much We appreciated a cruise that was as enjoyable as it
was instructive. The unlimited opportunity given us to learn-by-doing gave us a feeling of confi-
dence. We had handled the bridge, the engines, and all the gear in sight throughout the cruise and had
proved to ourselves that we could take a ship in safety from point "A" to point "B" and back again.

U Q is:
It has been said, and not without reason, that the Class of '41 was the
first class to have to do some unpleasant things and the last class to have
to do all the others. Nevertheless, the West Coast cruise follows this rule
by being the exception which proves it.
In the frantic storm of activity that was Grad Week, the white cutter
tied up at the dock was important mainly as a place to show the girl-friend
and act duly salty, thanks to the South American cruise in our wake al-
ready. However, in almost no time, we made the transition from our storm-
swept barracks to the "glory holef' on our respective ships with everything
in some semblance of order. In a drizzling rain, we bade our weeping girls
and cheering relatives farewell while the band played stirring strains. Only
the expectation of impending adventure kept waves of loneliness away, and

when, at long last the Exec
singled up the lines, backed the
engines, and cleared the dock
with a mournful blast of the
whistle, we were off to see the
world in eighty days.
Down the Thames and into the
Sound we went and ran smack
into the grandfather of all fogs.
For two days we crept along,
making the acquaintance of
cruise chow, the midwatch, the
scullery coffee pot, the radio
direction-finder, and last but far
from least, the lee rail. The fog
stuck with us to Cape May,
where we went ashore on patrol
boats the first day and discovered
that the ships could dock with-
out us, after all. Alternately
blazing away at the targets and
working in the butts, we com-
pleted the pistol course. The
infamous Jersey mosquitoes were
all present and accounted for, as
in previous years, and all of them
were expert shots, even if we
were not. We started the rifle
course, laying in those slight
depressions on the firing line
which the rain had filled with
water. However, after two days
"'-23---1 , 1 - ' " '
spent sleeping on the firing line
waiting for the fog to lift, we
gave it up and set to sea again.
The next scheduled stop was
Havanag so imagine our surprise
upon waking up the next morn-
ing to find ourselves standing up
the Chesapeake Bay with Vir-
ginia Beach and Norfolk in plain
sight. This windfall of liberty
was due to the necessity of fuel-
ingg and most of the ship's com-
pany wasted little time among
the tanks of Craney Island but
set out for Norfolk and points
elsewhere. The watch section
left aboard passed a unanimous
resolution to give Craney Island
back to the cranes and apologize
for the condition it was in. The
stories of the Surf Club and the
southern cooking supplied con-
versation for days.
After this cheering' 'time-out' ' ,
we set out for Havana as per
scheduleg the days passed as most
days on the North Atlantic do:
the ship rolling gently, but
enough to keep us from over-
eatingg the deep blue bow waves
chasing the astonished flying

fish, emergency drills to keep us on our
toes just in case, the hours off-Watch
spent in a practical course in vvhat-kept-
the-ship-so-white, the afternoons de-
voted to the mastery of cribbage and
acey-deucey, and the nights passed in
observing movies with the aid of a 15-
degree roll and a 10-knot Wind, or else
in working innumerable star sights,
depending on vvhether you happened to
be a carefree third classman or the cadet
So, after due lapse of time, we stood
into the narrow channel of Havana
harbor, leaving Morro Castle close
aboard to port and firing our salutes as
We vvent. We were hardly docked before
We got our baptism of fire on the sub-
ject of omcial calls, complete with side-
boys, guard of honor, pipe, and jittery
O. D. We had a conducted tour of all
the monuments, parks, and historic
spots, including tvvo beautiful old ca-
thedrals, the Maine Monument, and a
tropical garden. After this, We were on
our own and made the most of it. The
third class was initiated into the mys-
teries of the ways of the curio-shop-
proprieter, i.e., how by putting on an
act worth three dollars, you can maybe
beat the price down one. We saw the
rhumba a la native and the jai alai game.
The persistent taxi drivers with their
ideas on recreation, the narrow streets,
and the hair-raising driving all duly im-
pressed us. The snakes in our midst
managed to make a few friends, as usual.
lt was a lot of fun, but most of us, due
to financial depletion and that tired feel-
ing, were almost glad to get out to sea
Once again out of sight of land,
ploughing through the Spanish Main,
it became increasingly apparent why
cadets number time in days. The day is
the logical unit of division, with rev-
eille, scrub-down, and breakfast being
our constants and everything else our
variables. So much could and did h-ap-
pen that sometimes even days seemed
too large as units of reckoning. Some of
our new-found salts had a bit of shock
when we passed through the unsettled
waters of Yucatan Channel and they
discovered that sea legs are not a perma-
The next port of call was Cristobal,
we stopped only for a day, prior to go-
ing through the Canal. A large fire had
preceded us, so that most of the popu-
lation was living in tents on the strip
down the center of the main drag, A
swim and a meal ashore found us ready
to go again. The next morning, we
started up the old French part of the
Canal just as the Midshipmen with three battleships in column steamed slowly into the harbor behind
us. There was a strict regulation against taking pictures, cameras were collected before we started. So, we
have no photographic evidence of our first good look at the jungle which grew down to the water's edgeg
but all hands were on deck to see us enter the first locks. Both cutters were locked through together, along
with some excited fish which kept jumping around us and tantalizing our amateur anglers. On we went,
scrubbing down with fresh water as we passed through Gatun Lake, and finally
emerging at Balboa. The most important thing that happened .here was that the
canteen took on a store of ice cream which held out against the ravages of the
entire ship's company for the next thirty-six hours.
We made the acquaintance of the long, rolling, Pacific swell, and the neatness
of our engineering sketches improved accordingly. The run to Acapulco was
characterized by a large amount of hard work 5 and the paintwork and our note-
books were in much better shape when we arrived.
A touch of humor was provided by a newspaper clipping of an enthusiastic

steamship company's description of "quaint and scenic" Acapulco. We anchored in the splendid
natural harbor and threw some of our hard-earned pennies over the side for the urchins to dive after.
We were advised not to eat or drink anything ashore, because both the food and water were bad.
However, temptation was too much for most of us, so we sampled the native dishes, anyhow. Some
of our more venturesome souls who strolled beyond the quagmire that was a Mexican version of Main
Street reported adobe huts on the edge of town in which people and pigs lived together in perfect
harmony. Acapulco was a splendid place to rest, there is not much else one can do there. However,
since rest, as well as sleep, is something that cadets on a cruise soon learn to do without, it was with
no regrets that we steamed past the headlands ofthe bay, swung to the north, and proceeded toward
We were in sight of the coast most of the time, and the mountain peaks were something new for
the east-coasters, as well as being a blessing in disguise to the cadet navigator. Gun and rangefinder
drills were started, and the sunsets had our camera enthusiasts manning the rail almost every evening.
On we went, passing the blaze of lights that was Los Angeles at night, nearly running down a boat

fishing without lights at midnight, but finally passing through the Golden Gate at dawn to dock at
Frisco Without mishap.
The California delegation got off to see their families, and the rest of us went on a minor speed run
after our long days at sea, same including Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, the Barbary Coast, and the
World's Fair, to mention a few places. American food looked good and tasted better after the siege
of eggs on the Sammc and Kraus' h. e. on the Sebago. We took back all the unkind things We had said
about the Chamber of Commerce when they treated us to a sightseeing trip which took in the Bay
Bridge, Mare Island Navy Yard Where we had lunch, the redvvoods in Muir Woods, the Golden Gate
Bridge, residential San Francisco and the Golden Gate Park, and a World of scenery that even put the
postcards to shame. Any lingering doubts We may have had were dispelled when the St. Francis
Yacht Club had a dance for us, complete with dates and everything. You could just see friendships
budding all over the place! For the Fourth of July, we anchored off Treasure Island, full-dressed the
ships, and kept all the boats busy ferrying visitors back and forth. We were given free admission to
most of the Fair, so we got around quite a bit. There was a material rise in the number of first class-
men intending to put in for west coast duty on that happy day when ....
From Frisco, we turned and headed to the south for San Pedro. ln spite of all the praises the min-
strels sing of California weather, we ran into fog, heavy fog, full of other ships, so that we were hours
behind schedule, even on that short run. The Navy Fleet was somewhere in the Pacific, so we had the
harbor just about to ourselves. We soon learned how to commute between the ship and Long Beach
and L. A. The California Yacht Club played host to us with a dinner-dance that was, in our parlance,
"right on. " We, in turn, held a tea dance on our combined quarterdecks, the ships having been warped
alongside each other for the occasion. Our dates of the night before showed up promptly, to a girl,
and it was a pleasant surprise to see that they looked even better by daylight. We made a trip to Holly-
wood in true tourist style and returned with photographic evidence that Anne Sheridan has not only
"Oomph" but threescore and ten cadets.
It was with mingled regret at leaving and joy at being headed home that we bade the Golden State
a temporary farewell. lt was a long stretch back to the Canal, with the days being carbon copies
each other. We started getting that coat of tan that convinces the home folks that it zum a pleasure cruise, the
temperature Went up to ninety one afternoon and the engine room to 127. One day out of Balboa, a man-overboi
drill developed into the real thing when a third classman released his grip on the lifeline simultaneously vvith t
boat gripe, thereby giving rise to the funniest story of the cruise: i.e., how the event was announced by an exci
mess-boy in the vvardroom, "Man overboard, no stuff!" We lowered our boat so fast that the cox'n fell out fr
under his hat and so recovered one drenched cadet Well before the sharks found him. The ship was taken ii
Balboa by a pilot vvho made a beautiful three-bell landing, thereby giving us another good cruise story.
The Army commissaries and the native shops did a rushing business during our stay, and the ship's draft
creased an inch or so daily from the weight of accumulated souvenirs on board. Perfume, linen, silver, carvin
silk, needlework, and a profusion of other things kept us bargaining until vve were hoarse, and vve seldom fai
to find somebody who had bought the same thing for less. Those vvho felt in an exploring mood went out to
ruins of old Panama City, to the world-famous Coconut Grove, or just around to see the sights. With sunset,
made a concerted rush to any one of the three Gardens z Tropical, Balboa, or Atlas. The place bristled with soldic
We took on stores, the comrnissary department having at long last relented, and started through the Big Di
once more. lt was old stuff to such seasoned travelers as We had become, vve even managed to sleep a little betvv+
locks. When We were through some hours later, the short chop of the Atlantic made it quite plain to us Why '
Pacific Ocean was so called.
With battle practice a mere matter of days avvay, gun drill started in earnest. Ship Control, Fire Control, z
Plot started earning their pay, too. Norfolk found us clicking over like a machine and ready to go. We tied
with three other cutters at the docks and took a day or so of well-earned rest before going out to Lynnha'
Roads to fire. The time went by on the double, the days not spent in making approaches or firing were pas

observing on the other ships. When the last round of ammunition had departed at 3150 feet per second
and found a watery grave after three ricochets, we were northbound and counting the hours to go. Fog
on Long Island Sound held us up a little, but it was no time at all before we were through the bridge
in a shower of old shoes and tied up at the Academy dock.
Forgotten were all the minor annoyances and petty discomfortsg we showed amazing dexterity in dis-
embarking and returning to the comforts of Chase Hall for a breather before that long-awaited leave.
The pleasure of standing under a shower that ran alternately hot and cold at the touch of so simple a
thing as a handle and the sight of linen on the tables in the mess hall where chairs were used instead of
unstable benches was nearly overwhelming. A few hours for refreshment and nourishment . . . then the
rush to the Accounting Office for leave allowance . . . and leave really begang the exodus to the railroad
station . . . homeward bound on the first big leave for some, the last for others . . . for all, the unfor-
gettable pleasure of the familiar after weeks of strange places and strange sights.

artl off the Record
The few bright spots in each day's program make cadet life worth living. Reminiscing is a lot of fun, too.
This is the substance that bull-sessions are made of. First, the cruise:
0.0.D,: "Sail, ho!" Lookout: 'iWhere away, sir?" 0.0.D.: "Two points on the starboard bow."
Lookout: "Very well, sir." . . . Lookout: "Sail, ho!" 0.0.D.: "Where away?" Lookout: "Broad on the
port beam, sir." 0.0.D.: "Can you make her out?" Lookout: "A liner, sir." Somewhat later. "Correction,
sir, it's only the moon." . . . Lookout making half-hourly report: "Sir, it's 0130 and the horizon is clear."
0.0.D. It 'Very well, keep her so." . . . Commissioned O.D.: "Mr. Ll, what are you people doing here
on the SARANAC?" Cadet: "Oh, I came over to show you how to run a battle practice." 0.0.D.: "Put
yourself on for at least l5." . . . Officer in charge of boat: "Mr. Pi-, throw that fender over the side."
The fender floats slowly away. "But sir, I only did what you said." . . . Anonymous cry as cadet lashes
about in the water: "Man overboard, no-if' . . . Lookout waking from sound sleep: "Patrol boat, ho,
sir." 0.0.D.: "Where away?" Lookout: "Tied up alongside, sir." . . .
Then the classroom:
Language instructor: "Mi-. Li, do you think I am as dumb as you are?" Cadet: 'LI can't say, sir." . . .
Cadet: "Sir, is that French or English you're writing on the board?" Instructor: "Mr. C-, PHE youself
on the report, and make it something good." . . . Instructor: "Mr. MZ, do you have your garters on?"
Cadet: "Oh, no, sir, I never wear them." . . . Cadet: "Sir, what should I study to pass this exam?" In-
structor: "Don't bother about the exam, study for the re-exam." . . . Instructor in drawing class: "When
you cadets finish your plates, put down the windows and turn out the lights." Voice from a corner: "Yas
suh, boss, and we'll put the cat out, too." . . . Gunnery instructor: "What is the difference between a fuze
and a primer?" Cadet: "A fuze sets the primer off." . . . Physics instructor: "Mr. KZ, why are the
sodium vapor lights on Mohegan Avenue yellow?" Cadet: "Because there's an intersection there, sir." . . .
Law instructor: "If you were leaving on a trip and got up early and opened your neighbor's window and
threw your dog in and yelled 'Bailment' as you left, would it be legal?" . . . Instructor: "Mr. HZ, when
did you quit jumping ship?" . . . Cadet: "But, sir, what is this magic word?" Instructor: "Go to the
limit." . . . Cadet: "Now, F: MA." Instructor: "Granted, but why?" . . . Instructor's son: "Is mechanics
very hard?" Cadet: "No worse than the other subjects, why?" Instructor's son: "Well, my daddy has to
study late every night to get it." . . .
Then here and there:
Q.M.: "Good morning, Mr. W--, it's time to get up." Grouchy voice: "You say that every morning,
give me some variety." Next morning: "Get up, you red-headed :'fl?8c!.". . . Familiar note about the reser-
vation: "Heigh ho, Silvyaf' . . . Who switched Palmer's and Pearson's trou iust before theidress parade? . . .
What swab asked permission to show his date the stars in the observatory instead of attending a basketball
game? . . . Fond memory: "Youse guys, from now on, will knock off this Happy Boithday stuff." . . .
Who did the O.D. catch asleep in his hammock in the sky on the cruise? . . . "Lost: one pair of trousers on
Mohegan Avenue. Finder please return to Cadet . . . "Mr. Ji, how do you ignite the gas in the
carburetor?" . . .Then there was the cadet who fell off the dock after having sailed upright for a whole
dinghy race .... Who did the dunce cap that was too large for Shepard fit so well? . . . One first classman
claims that he has been made an ass of so often that he says "Hi, brother" every time he passes a mule. . . .
Swab seated backward at first boat drill to commissioned O.D.: "Hey, Alex, how do you sit in this
darned thing, anyway?" . . .
Last, but far from least, the leave stories:
Passerby Cto cadet in Grand CentralD: "What time does the ten-thirty train leave?" Cadet: "Eleven
o'clock, lady." . . . Bystander Cmistaking cadet for usherQ: "Can I smoke in the lobby?" Cadet: "Sure if
you're hot enough. " . . . CAnd as a fitting climaxj Sweet Young Thing to swab on leave: "Are you a Coast
Guard Cutter?" . . .
Without the Willing assistance of many people TIDE Ruvs 1941 could never have
been completed. We vvish to express Our sincere gratitude and appreciation to:
LIEUT. COMDR. S. H. EVANS, TIDE Rips adviser-Whose advice and assistance
has been invaluable.

l Americans everywhere pay enthusiastic tribute
to the U. S. Coast Guard and its long record of
distinguished service to country and countrymen.
News that the Coast Guard is being expanded to
25,000 men is warmly received. So, too, is the news
that a large fleet of modern 83-foot patrol boats is
now building for the Coast Guard. Designed by
Naval Architect Waltei' J. Mclnnis, of Boston, these
sturdy, trim and speedy boats are of wood construc-
tion and have rounded-bilge hulls.
Significantly, each of these new patrol boats is be-
ing powered by a pair of husky 8 cylinder Sterling
Viking engines, turning out 600 horsepower apiece.
Built into every one of these Vikings are the
mechanical efficiency, dependability and durability
that have made Sterling engines a favorite in Coast
Guard service for many years.
With Best Wishes for Many Success-

tages of teamwork and help you to
