For the years spent here in New London are more than ««vwwvwv ( ' " Nsv ete formal Q ucation; they represent the ' VVv Vx. transition from-civilian leisure to service alertness.

Previously true in a more general sense, our theme now became the key factor in Academy affairs . . . and with this in mind we present our record of those affairs. v Vv, J fU " I J J n u Hdmli4 idin.ail n • Academloi J MlUta iu ' Gnulde AlMum a oclai ' lioA iacm • AtMeilci D ' - - ' - J- MxleAdaUe Vv Hv W, In 1876 the first cadets of the Coast Guard commenced training aboard the schooner Dobbin which was stationed at New Bedford, Mass. From the Dobbin they were later transferred to the Chase, and at the turn of the century they moved ashore at Arundel Cove, Md. Their next home was at Fort Trumbull, New London, and then in 1932 the present site. Below are views of the grounds to which we become so sentimentally attached during our stay here. There is a certain simple beauty to the buildings and their surroundings that cannot help but impress everyone who sees them. The red brick and the white trim of the Georgian style architecture go well both with the summer verdure and winter ' s snowy blanket.

Extending like a pointed finger out into the river, it is the home of the ships and boats of our training fleet. During the summertime it is lined up witli our schooners, and the rigging of either the Di nwark or the AtLnitic stands out against the sky. The boat shed houses our rowing fleet, and on the adjoining field small sailboats are stowed. Jacob ' s Rock and the dock enclose the " boat basin " where star boats and sloops are moored. 15 yr , ew careers require so wide an educational background ' as does that of a Coast Guard Officer. Our wartime col- lahoration with the Navy has amplified this background by calling for a proficiency in ordnance and gunnery equal to that , ' in seamanship, law, and economics. To prepare oneself for such a job is severe enough in four years... to make these same prepara- tions in three years, and on such short notice, is the task we have attempted to accomplish.

It is their first real clash with any technical subject. But rather than com- ing out of the course full fledged scientists, they are humbled to tlie realization of what they have yet to learn. Chemistry acquaints us with the building blocks of matter. We start with a very vague con- ception of the elusive atoms and molecules. But the instructor ' s long wooden pointer sweeping endlessly over the face of the periodic table of elements, gradually sketches some order into its crazy hieroglyphics. Skeleton models of molecu- lar structures impress a weird but useful interpre- tation of chemical substance m our minds. With that knowledge we can almost readily picture the hidden processes behind the quite obvious chemi- cal combinations and reactions. We have reached the practical stage. Lectures on corrosion, battery reactions, and boiler feed testing give us an idea of what we can do with a comand of the formulae and equations that be- devil our examination hours. Gone are the dreams of spectacular achievements with test tube and flame. But the nightmares remain — boiler feed water gone wrong and not an equation in sight. PROF. J. B. HOAG Head of Science Department 26 n G n u n U L n As the basis of practically .ill engineering, jL Physics is heavily empiiasized. It paves the way tor our ct)urses in electrical and marine engi- neering, and for gunnery. The subject carries us through three half-year terms with Perkins " Un- abridged " as our guide. Successively we are initi- ated to mechanics, heat, sound, light, magne- tism, electricity, and electronics. Will wonders never cease! In the classroom we listen with amazemcnt- ve reason — we speculate. We see the whirling gyroscope, the prismatic spectrum, the magnetic flux as outlined with iron filings. Occasionally we join hands, form a circle, and experience with mixed reaction the ellects of voltage. Then there are the discussion groups at which we all in turn voice our opinions. Laboratory work substantiates the book knowledge. From a humble start wherein we learn the methods and accuracy of measurements we advance right up to a study of photoelectric cells and radioactive substance. There are occa- sional interruptions as Professor Hoag looks around for a microfarad, or a smoking voltmeter is hastily taken out of the line. Additional fea- tures of the lab course are useful demonstrations of more elaborate experiments which require the magic touch of a full fledged scientist for per- formance. But on the whole we learn by doing and the dividends are reaped from there on. 27 n n tID tttl Mc (PuMe MACHINERY and Power are the flesh and blood of the modern Coast Guard cutter. Every officer, since he will sooner or later serve a tour of duty in the engine room, must therefore be a trained marine engineer. For if the cutter is to help other ships in distress its machinery must be so much the better than average. It is no easy matter to learn such technical and detailed subjects as Thermodynamics, Heat En- gines, Boilers, I. C. Engines and Turbines. " Prac- ticability " has become the watchword of the de- partment. Careful sifting of material directly ap- plicable to Coast Guard work and repetition of the more important phases is considered the wis- est approach. As a result, we learn how to avoid serious breakdown of machinery " as has liap- pened " according to Mr. Jones. And if we ever happen to find ourselves with a spare pound of steam we know just what to do with it. For to an engineer the primary goal is safety to person- nel; the second, performance of mission. With the hours of " higher temperatures and higher pressures " and " where are the boilers!! " spent in Captain O ' Connor ' s class supplemented by practical cruise experience, the graduated ca- det has a sound foundation for his service career. 3 t?S ' s» Vif ' - " Tuice " is potential pcnvcr and, as cngmccr, tl an oHiccr should know liow to control it and develop it. Our first encounter with the intricacies of elec- tricity begins during the Physics course. Here we are introduced to the terms, perform elementary experiments, and obtain a thin crust upon which to base the more complex and formidable knowl- edge of the subject. D.C. Circuits and Machinery is the next step and it proves to us that there is more to electricity than just pushing a button. Lieutenant Creedon is ever inclined to allow the cadets to express their opinion as to the truth of a statement. Typical polls: " How many say this answer is right? " — 6. " How many say it is wrong? " — 4. " How many don ' t vote? " — 11. Total in class — 36. But we master D.C. and go on to A.C. This is perhaps the most theoretical and at the same time the most practical part of elec- tricity. We study the operation of the alternator and the A.C. motor and their " attendant phe- nomena. " Radio is the final branch of E.E. and is a necessary study as it deals with the nerve system of the service. Laboratory work is concomitant with theory. It is here that each cadet actually gets the " feel " of the humming machinery and becomes ex- perienced with its idiosyncrasies. CAPT. (E) G. R. O ' CONNOR Head of Engineering Department 29 I Ssf? " " " :: ' tt n u n ttl LIEUT. COMDR. W. R. RICHARDS Head of Department THERE is hardly need to expound on tlie ad- vantages of courses in gunnery today since most people would rather be on the sending than the receiving end of a five-inch shell. It is the pur- pose of ordnance to show us how to send that shell on its way. Exterior ballistics shows us what happens to the shell in flight. And again, ordnance teaches what happens when it arrives. Much of the work in gunnery is theoretical. For long hours the classroom echoes the cry " Salvo " — " Raft, " as an imaginary cutter sinks an equally hypothetical target ship. But long and short range battle practice during the sum- mer months bear out our knowledge in fact. Ordnance is also chiefly theoretical, but after reading about the big deck rifles we get into dun- garees and actually break them down. We are in- formed that the only time disappearing guns are met with in the Coast Guard is when the recoil cylinders aren ' t filled. In correlation, part of our course in tactics is devoted to a study of small arms. The net result of this combination of courses is a thorough knowledge of our weapons — we can fire them, repair them, and make them do anything but shoot around corners. 30 n u n G As .1 prime essential to all engineering work, JLX. science, navigation, and gunnery, inatlie- matics is heavily stressed at the beginning of our course. Entrance examinations require a working knowledge of the basic matlis and the academy supplies the rest. In rapid succession come college algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, and calculus. These are followed up hy diHereiitial equations and lecture courses in harmonics. In the hrst months of contusion when the abstruse functionings of calculus are being brought out into the light many a cadet reasons by the old maxim, " When in doubt — integrate! " Mr. For- ney ' s striking analogies help us visualize those three dimensional surfaces — " You take an ellipse and rotate it about its major axis and what do you have, gentlemen ... a watermelon. " By the end of the first year we realize that we possess the invaluable weapon for attacking any and all P-work problems. Our sines and cosines pop up in the most unexpected places and we know just how to handle them. Our derivatives even found their way into one of the football yells. But more than in practical application mathematics is valu- able in developing a clear mind — a mind capable of scientific analysis of problems and of logical solutions to them. PROF. C. E. DIMICK Head of Department rV5 g!!W - • ' 31 LIEUT. COMDR. S. P. SWICEGOOD Head of Department NAVIGATION is learned in a course covering a scope from basic spherical trigonometry to astronomy. Contrary to the occasionally ex- pressed opinion that the Coast Guard is a Hooli- gan navy, we are deep water sailors and good ones. Navigation is essential to every officer for the time when he gets out of range of the radio beacons. Much time is spent in the classrooms working out sights and plotting fixes. Parallel rules, dividers and books fly as we try to expedi- tiously transfer our observed data onto paper. The monthly quizzes are classical examples of ur- gency. And as, at the end of the hour we turn in our papers half completed, we remember the words of Commander Swicegood, " Time? Why you ' ll have plenty of time. " Practice makes per- fect and on our first class cruises we get opportun- ity to put our classroom techniques into real prac- tice — with the possible exception of " tarpeder " problems. We are impressed with the thorough- ness required in this job that admits of no mis- take. By graduation time the ragged edges are worn off and the first class cadet is thoroughly qualified as an efficient navigator. With careful plotting he can indicate the ship ' s position on a chart with the prick of a dividers instead of a thumb print. — •• X-NfS.-vj n u L As a doctor should be expected to place a . bandage without thinking, a Coast Guards- man is expected to tie knots automatically. Sea- manship is our profession and instructions in it are the most important phase ot our training. Every day we learn and practice it. At the incon- ceivable hour of six a.m. we roll drowsily out of our bunks and in ten minutes find ourselves seated in a whale-boat tugging vigorously at an oar. In classes and during indoctrination periods we learn the language of the sea, how to disentangle complicated tackles, how to splice rope, and vari- ous other tricks of the trade. On cruises we go on to deck appliances, bridge instruments, and on. The first class cadet as Cadet O.D. learns ship handling and conning on these cruises. And so we progress — it is a subject about which there will always be something else to learn. The everyday training in seamanship witnesses many mistakes. Whale-boats slam into the dock, knots slip, and cadets are dunked. But it is better to make the errors when there is nothing to lose than when human life is at stake. As ensigns-to- be we feel reasonably salty although not quite up to the point where we can spit tar. LIEUT. COMDR. M. H. IMLAY Head of Department 33 : ?=» ' " -- - -s " « ' 3 :v . n L G n G PROF. A. A. LAWRENCE Head of Department UNDER general studies come English, the Languages, and History. They form the nucleus of our cultural background. Entering cadets are required to be already well grounded in the. mechanics of the English lan- guage. Therefore there is but a cursory review of grammar to correct a few cadets who are still prone to say " ' he has went " — the bulk of the course consists of theme-writing on practical and timely subjects. The end is to develop the clear, forceful, and elegant expression so necessary to every officer. Language is the one opportunity for selection in the curriculum — French or Spanish. During normal times the average officer will at some time find it convenient to know another tongue and for this reason we make the study. After two years of hearing " You do better, but you flunk again " we console ourselves with the thougiit that knowledge is never wasted. In History class we read of peoples and their governments. And as we read we begin to get the picture of the motivating factors behind the phases of human relations. Contemporary prob- lems are studied, and we are given the chance to drag out the soap box and present our own views. Thus we acquire a background as poten- tial administrators in our post-war government, be it what it may. 34 n LU n u n G THIS is a matter ol niDn.- than just academic interest it prDvides a basis tor future ac- tion as members ot one ot the government organi- zations involved in fostering the merchant ma- rine. Each passing year ties the Coast Guard arul maritime industry closer together. Besides as- sistance at sea we contact the industry as a regu- latory and law enforcing agency, and we now control the maritime training program. In view of these relationships it has been deemed advis- able to present the cadets with a fairly compre- hensive course in maritime economics. We read with interest about the days of iron men and wooden ships, about tlic days of the clippers, and then the advent of steel ships. The last few years in the story of the merchant marine are most carefully considered because of the great change wliicli labor lias wrought. Lectures by Professor Seward on technical aspects collaborate with our text learning. Opportunity is also taken during tliese classes to discuss daily news in the light of our studies. At the end of the course we have an appreciation of the problems of both seamen and employers and a guide to help us act intelligently in our future contacts with those parties. PROF. H. L. SEWARD Head of Department 35 D LIBRARIAN E. M. ESPELIE LOCATED in the academic building, the library J has always been a meeting place. It is there that cadets entertain visitors. The walls are dec- orated with murals that present a history of the Coast Guard from its inception as the Revenue Cutter Service. To the visitors they briefly tell a story of the courage and daring that has been our tradition. The library is also the mecca of swabs in hasty pursuit of elusive facts and fig ures, de- tails which they must carry out under upperclass compulsion. There also meet the readers of the Neiv York Times each morning about nine-thirty. But the main purpose of the library is to fur- nish the cadet with a wealth of information, es- pecially on matters nautical. For this it is well equipped, containing about 16,000 volumes, the majority of which pertain to the sea. Periodicals keep us posted on current events. An addition is being made to the library which will accommodate 100,000 volumes, will provide carrells, store rooms for reserve books, and a browsing room for those precocious individuals who find time to browse. But no matter how busy a cadet is there is always a force that calls him back to the library, that compels him to re- visit that shrine to wisdom — his ' ' book overdue " notice. ! - 4 5 5 - J A cadet ' s spiritual training is not neglected for the array of technical studies and the physical training. With the thought in mind that God is behind our every act and provides divine guidance tor all, a part of Sunday morning is set aside for His worship. We are all given a fair op- portunity to concentrate in thanking Him for His benefits. Every cadet is free to follow his own bent in religion and is given ample time to accommodate his desires for religious practice. Liberty is granted each Sunday morning at convenient times so that cadets may attend any house of worship in town. Catholic Chapel is conducted at the Academy at eight o ' clock by Father Collins. This is a short service, and tor those attending, there is a late breakfast. At ten o ' clock there is a non- denominational service conducted by Chaplain Moore. He gives man-to-man talks based on liis wide experience among service personnel. At this later chapel the band accompanies with appropriate selections from Wagner, Dvorak, and other masters. The highlights of the year are the annual Thanksgiving Day ceremony and the Easter Sun- rise Service. These, too, are non-sectarian, and the latter is open to the public. Preachers repre- senting the various churches in town assist. CAPT. J. W. MOORE (Ch. C.) U. S. N. Chaplain 37 • -• is Sa?jc JUu l L H LIEUT. J. S. MERRIMAN Head of Department EY, JugctY — OPEN up! " And eventually Juggy opens the supply room and doles out socks, shorts, basketballs, and other athletic paraphernalia to the phys-eds. These are the ca- dets whose abilities in any one sport are not of the standard required by the coaches. By regula- tion, they are required to spend a minimum of three hours a week at some form of exercise. Classes under the direction of Lieutenant Mer- riman provide activity, variety, and fun for all. In the fall, touch football and cross country (with its apple-plucking detours) are the order of the day, and the winter season witnesses the famous ■■ knock-down-and-drag-out " basketball games, boxing, and swimming. During the spring season the same three sports are maintained with spring football, tennis, and some more cross country as alternatives. Provision is made whereby the classes are rotated among the different sports so that each cadet will gain a certain amount of ability in everything. Lately there has been a rising interest in fenc- ing, gymnastics, wrestling, and weight-lifting (for the 97 pound weaklings). As the cadet corps increases in number there is a strong possibility that these, too, may be added to our list of intra- mural sports. 38 ; n u Ox those rare occasiiins when a cadet linJs time to he sick, lie receives prompt atten- tion and care in the inlirrnary. The sick bay is staffed with a competent group oi Public Health Service doctors and their assistants, pharmacist mates of the Coast Guard. The general well-being of the corps is their responsibility and, in tribute to their thoroughness, it must be said that the corps is indeed feeling fine. Although the wits avow that pink pills are the standard remedy for every sort of ailment, in- cluding a broken leg, yet the hospital is modernly equipped to handle everything from athlete ' s foot to a major operation. The best use is made of these facilities in the care of cadets. While the sick bay is always available to gen- uine patients, it is no refuge for malingerers. The cadet who suddenly feels indisposed in the face of a drill or on the eve of " Hundredth Day, " or who finds himself with two dates for a dance is invariably forced to resort to some other " out. " Routine work of the medical staff includes an- nual physical exams, various types of inocula- tions, dental check-ups and inspection of the res- ervation to maintain sanitary conditions at their high level. They also provide instructors in hy- giene and first aid. SURGEON W. W. NESBIT, U. S. P. H. S.

Thus the course at the Academy has always included " blue water " cruises on service cutters. War has precluded such excur- sions, but has introduced another phase of training. Since ' ' vvwwvv! " " ' " ' we may transport troops, we must learn something of the problems they will face in the field. Labeled " Tactics " such lessons form an interesting addition to our already filled schedule. m 1 ■■ t v ' vf •: • 1 „jBii iM f ' :i ' . ' ' ■ ' ti ' V -mS I F ' t z ' in ' eo vM Kti ft- ' .

Tactical Officer; and Cadet Clark, Battalion Com- mander. PRIOR to Dec. 7, 1941 our drill was of tlie " spit and polish " variety known as close order. It was the drill of straight lines and snappy move- ment; it was smart to watch. The object was to teach instant coordination of mind and muscle, to engrain discipline, and to give us a pride in military things. We really " dug in our heels and strutted. " After Pearl Harbor the aspect changed. There was no longer time for showmanship. The smart had to give way to the practical. Whites and full dress were packed in niotl: bails and tiie uni- form became dungarees. Extended order drill was adopted and we started to learn the basic principles of maneuvering wiicn under fire. W ' itli packs and rifles we simulated actual conditions and discovered the art of taking cover behind a blade of grass. It was different and interesting, the antithesis of close order drill in every respect bur coordination. Simultaneously emphasis was placed on familiarity with small arms and for weeks during tactics period we toiled with ma- chine guns, rifles, and pistols. Someday our lives might depend on a knowledge of these things and we don ' t care to be found wanting. 43 standing: Day, Beemer, Cheney, Banner, Scheiderer.

They make all the arrangements, issue the necessary orders, and in general see that the maneuvers are run off smoothly. The cadet battalion commander is primarily responsible for seeing that the tactical officers ' orders are carried out en toto. But this involves much de- tailed labor and to aid him he has a staff of eight assistants. This staff is an extension of the corre- sponding army unit including in its structure the Executive Officer, Plans and Training Officer, Adjutant, Intelligence Officer, Communications Officer, Supply Officer, and Chief Petty Officer.

This company is commanded by the Battalion Adjutant and is organized in four sections: communications, service, intelligence, and medical. The first three sections are composed of cadets, the last one of enlisted men. Attached also to this company is the Color Guard. Headquarters Co. is chiefly an administrative arm and is accordingly respon- sible for the miscellaneous tasks that cannot be assigned to the in- dividual companies. The service section is operated underthe Supply Officer and handles ammunition and equipment. Men in the intelli- gence section aid the Intelligence Officer in reconnaissance of our prospective battlefields.

" A " and " B " companies are the rifle companies com- posed of regular cadets, and are identical in organization. They form the bulk of our attack force, the doughboys of our imagina- tive warfare. Each Saturday morning four hours are devoted to sham battles. Laden with rifles, packs, and a candy bar, with which to fight off starvation, we sally forth into the wilds of Connecticut. The scene has been laid — hills and dales seethe with make-believe enemy. Ours is the job to come, see, and conquer them. The troops are deployed, scouts sent out, and the ad- " Better fire before you see the whites of their eyes! " w D n u What is meant by " an army travels on its stomach " . |,vance phase begins. Soon a few blank shots are heard, and contact has been made with the enemy. To a man tlic battalion falls t)n its face, be it in mud, on stone, or in just plain brambles. From there on, advance is by infiltration. Each man, as he finds op- portunity, jumps up, advances a short dis- tance, and drops down behind new cover. The picture on the opposite page shows a man ready to make a run, wiiilc the picture above shows the approved method of drop- ping according to the L. F. M., our com- pendium of military lore. And should we ever, when under fire, find ourselves in a position where there is no cover, we are told that we will get miraculous results with the aid of a small entrenching tool. 47 Standing ; Schmitz, Platoon Lead er; Beemer, Company Comman der; Woods, Platoon Leader.

With the advent of war, the need for a large increase in commissioned personnel was felt. In part, this was met by increasing Cadet enroll- ment and shortening the curriculum, and by granting temporary cominissions to warrant and petty officers. The balance had to be drawn from civilian life. A certain few were selected from the Coast Guard Auxiliary on the basis of pre- vious nautical experience. But it was apparent that such a program could not successfully be pushed beyond narrow limits. A period of in- doctrination, however brief, was essential. To this end the Reserve Training Course was in- auqurated. 49 Which proves that dead reckon- ing isn ' t so dead. Visual signalling is most important in this war. NDOCTRINATION is a subtle thing. Most CRC ' s began to know its meaning during their first month. Formations from 0600 to 2230 soon became our normal way of life. An officer ' s brace was a subject of critical comment. A shipmate out of step at drill was dealt with summarily. By patient exposition of the objects of military discipline, we began to get the idea; the respon- sibilities of a uniform were intuitively felt. And pride in the service, in our officers, and in the regular cadets who served as mentors and models, increased our pride in ourselves. During our first month as Apprentice Seamen, the ubiquitous Blue Jackets Manual became our bible. Seamanship classes taught us the mysteries of knot-tying, revived forgotten memories of the mechanical advantage of tackles, and gave us the rudiments of boat-handling. Practical work on board the training ship Damnark made us appreciative of the work that goes into keep ing a trim ship. Many of us became competent semaphore signalmen, and as many more de- veloped a life-long antipathy for flashing lights. We became familiar with small arms at the Armory and on the range. A man ' s adaptability to these new tasks furnished a sound basis for his selection as a prospective officer. Our apprenticeship over, we became reserve cadets, and were given our first liberty. In our new uniforms we were self-conscious and aware of the shortcomings of our braces as never before. We were soon to learn that this privilege would be dearly bought. Our new study schedule called for 44 hours of classes and 15 hours of study a week; in addition a two hour guard watch twice a week. Our course taught us the fundamentals of navigation, seamanship, communications, ord- nance and gunnery, and engineering. Much of our work found practical application on short training trips on the Thames, and on a cruise during the last month of our training. The first group of CRC ' s go to their stations on June 19. We arc confident that with training in our new duties as sympathetic as at the Academy, we can prove ourselves of value to the service. It ' s the ship that moves and the compass card that stands still. 50 ' lost ieir soon nee late niv, itary pon- ki the Jels, m, :oiir gave cteot shts, : the ir- serve lOiir nvare :fore. twice stals ,,orii- chof short enlist itions mi It the lucto rfiiwv n u It] i: :mif , " ..rn fi ' X t ' T S i ' vytn arctvc U,Aew ionclon need tkcCt ut Jbrms to r SooLQOiJtw ' kariVomJCJ JYkcbt stranoG noises one hzar florck Ti mess i , rms a race ice.

Therefore, a small amount of his time, but a lart e part ol his . interest is devoted to relaxation of one sort or another. f Dances, beach parties, sailing trips, picnics, " bull-sessions " , rallies, and arliletics, comprise the scope of his activities. ' ' uv In the section on " Barracks " we will try to present some everyday duties and events that go to complete a cadet ' s extra-curricular existence. i -vV«. «l«,.

Thcv arc heralded by an inllux of nickels to the Bell s stern as pros|-«cctivc dates arc hurriedly called. Bur all cadets " are invited and will attend " and date or no they go, dressed in their brass- buttoned boleros, their wives " " foo-foo " " radiating a subtle aura of masculine charm. Soft lights, star-spangled canopies, and decorations worthy of the brains of the committeemen and the brawn of the third class have transformed the erst- while gymnasium into a pavilioned paradise. OTABLY absent from all our formals is " bunnv-hoppin_5 " which inckides all the wilder arietv of dances. A few waltzes and a rhuniha or tango for Arthur Mur- ray ' s proteges serve to add spice to the musical program. Nt)tahly present is the stag line which generally forms just within reach of the cookies but not out of ogling range of passing femininity. A recent innovation is the reserved section where the old timers of the first class can recline in stuffed armchairs. Entertainment furnished by cadet talent fills in the eleven-thirtv intermission. At one the dance ends with the singing of the Alma Mater. ( s n LU O (ill in between formals there is a more impromptu schedule of informal dances. The ideal time is after a basketball game or boxing match. No decorations arc re- quired — just shoo the players off the floor, start up the band, and away vc go. The stiffness of the formal dances as suggested by the " monkey jackets " is absent and a happy-go-lucky spirit reigns. Since attendance is optional there is usually more room, and as many as four or five consecutive steps can be taken without fear of collision. Square dances, vocal entertainment, or some other forms of fun are conducted to insure an enjoyable time for all. These dances are not program dances and free-lancers (wolves) find rare opportunities to shine. 75 " ke Q all cm Today, of necessity, some social activity must take the back seat. But poise and grace are essential to future officers, a fact that we can ' t afford to lose sight of entirely. In the past it was customary for every member of the first class to pay a formal call to each married officer at- tached to the Academv. Now, however, in conside ration of the large classes and the short time it has been found advisable only to visit " on the hill, " as in the above call on Captain and Mrs. O ' Connor. Mrs. Pine, wife of the Superintendent, simplified the problem further by graciouslv inviting ten cadets and their girls to her home each Wednes- day afternoon for tea. 76 URING the king winter months tlicrc isn ' t very much opportunity for outdoor socials arouiiil New London. But where there ' s a will, there ' s a way — and skating is the outlet. No sooner does the arboretum pond at Connecticut College acquire its first thin skin of ice than girls and cadets rally around and gingerly make their way out on the surface. Occasionally there arc night-time skating parties with the warmth of the hearth fire at the lodge to thaw us out. For indoor social life, other than dances, class dinners are held from time to time at ncarhv inns. Shown helow is a Class of ' 42 dinner held at Nt)rwich Inn. 77 The Professor takes a lesson in navigation. Raw clams — and a handy bucket. iS soon as tlie April showers stop falling the real phiNtinie of our social existence begins. Every weekend the river blossoms out with sails as cadets and girls board our various small boats and cruise out to enjov the fresh breeze and the sunshine. And when the weather gets still warmer big scale operations begin. The schooners " Cur- lew " and " Innisfail " are ideal for sailing parties, and often as possible we muster our worthy crews and ven- ture out into the Sound. The girls do not, properly speak- ing, constitute part of the working crew- but then, what would a party be without them? ' « Lee rail under on the " Curlew " as she heads out across the Sound. Light breezes and warm sun let the sails luff and the sailors loaf. 78 h: ICTURED arc scenes at our favorite rivicra, the beach at Fisher ' s Island, where during summer months the sun-worshippers thrive. To be technical though, ac- cording to the Nautical Almanac we do not spend much summertime at the Academy until we enter that era of country club life known fondly as Second Class Summer. It is the time of Saturday jaunts to the beach, picnics on the cabin cruiser " L ' tilitie, " class parties, and group out- ings—all aided and abetted by fair weather which is " un- usual " for Connecticut. 79 OCKY NECK and Devil ' s Hop Yard are spring and fall haunts where hair is let down and hell is raised. Rocky Neck is a long beach with a rustic pavilion where we could square dance in spite of the rain. Sack " Doc " calls a square dance on the terrace. " Swing yore podners " races and three-legged races helped to pass the rest of the afternoon, and then hot dogs roasted in the big stone fireplace became victims of our whetted appe- tites. They taste especially good when eaten to the tunc of hillbilly guitars. As the sun sinks over the horizon everyone gathers Our dignified professors. around the fire and joins in the community sing. We run through the old favorites and then some of the Coast Guard specialties. ' olume makes up for lack of quality — or makes a brave attempt.

Parades, dances, and ceremonies all combine to make the period memorable to both the graduating class and the underclasses. Exams are gone and forgotten and all cadets plunge into the four days ' activity with much the same spirit as a schoolboy spending the first few days of summer vacation. The first day witnesses inter- company competition in rowing and sailing. ' isitors are shown around and many parents see the reservation for the first time. The traditional Ring Dance winds up that day. The following day brings company and platoon drill compe- tition and to the masters of pre- cision go cup awards, " Frosty- Bits, " and free cigars. The first class generally holds a big party that night. On the third come the last review and Baccalaureate Services. Cadets and guests then repair to the Hill for the Captain ' s Reception. TOP.

Echoing and reechoing through the corridors each morning it abruptly snatches us from our dream worlds and delivers us to the chilly grey dawn. Nights are never long enough. After methodically dressing we grope our way into the shower room. " Naval Leader- ship " gives laziness as the only excuse for being unshaven and by dint of much scraping and swearing we live up to the standard. 86 ' Lay out of the boat " . . . and the morning row across the Thames is over. 87 n OWING is the first hut not the hist indoctrination period of the day. For the third classmen " spare time " has come to mean time spent in " bracing up, " in unbending his body so that it finally resembles a board. A military bearing is a prime essential. The experts recommend this method for learning the manual of arms. Other useful knowledge which can ' t be gained from the books is acquired during the in- doctrination periods. Signal- ling, resuscitation, and practi- cal seamanship are drummed into every swab. These should be elements of the subconscious thinking of every officer. K the victim isn ' t dead already, this will fix him. 88 V far the most prevalent form of relaxation is the high-powered, large scale conversation known as the " bull session. ■■ Leading topics are the war, religion, philosophy, the final topic, women. Other amusements arc ping- pong, listening to the radio, or loafing. There are " rec " rooms in the barracks for the upper classes while the Canteen serves as the third class amusement center. All this is justified by the thought that to lead a well-balanced life we must play as well as work. To the upperclsssmen " spore time " has a slightly rosier aspect than to the swab. It is the time when he can repair to his room or to the recreation room and for a while forget shop. Here we keep up with cur- rent events and contemp- orary music. It is more (un to watch the spectators ' eyes. 89 While life on the reservation is interesting enough, and facili- ties are had for a prolonged existence aboard, we find it nice to get out and see the outside world occasionally. Liberty is granted on the weekends and, for the upperclasses, on Wednesdays. J -u ii II II " Give me liberty or — I ' ll have to make the restricted men ' s for- mation. " Cadets whose conduct has been questionable spend lib- erty hours on the reservation re- penting their sins. While on liberty we must wear the prescribed uniform and must be immaculately garbed before we go. As often as not someone is sent back to brush a stray mote off his coat. Tradi- tionally we salute the ensign as we " go ashore " or " come aboard. " 90 The unsuspecting swab entering the Academy doesn ' t know what it ' s all about. To acquaint him with the mysteries of cadet life and with the serv- ice the " Running Light, " or swab bible, is pub- lished annually by a picked staff. Outstanding social functions at the Academy are the dances. It is the job of the Dance Committee to plan and make preparations for the dances. It must get permission, arrange for the band and refreshments, provide chaperons, and, with the able assistance of the third class, decorate the gym. One of the most prized possessions of any officer is his class ring with class seal on one side and the Academy seal on the other. The Ring Com- mittee gets sample designs, orronges contracts, and sees that everyone is satisfied with his ring. 91 Every morning just before inspection the new watch " reports to relieve " under the watchful eye of the Cadet O. D. O give each cadet experience in hav- ing responsibility and to direct life around the barracks, the cadet watch is organized. This watch consists of a first class Officer-of-the-Day whose duty it is to maintain discipline and order in the barracks; a second class O. D. whose duty it is to assist the Cadet O. D.; and a guard squad composed of second and third classmen who provide orderlies, make colors, and lock and unlock the buildings. A Commissioned O. D. over- sees the entire procedure. Though some of the duties of the watch may seem in- significant, they all teach responsibility. The Cadet O. D. accounts for every man in the corps.

Aboard ship it is necessary for navigational work. Cadet guard squad leaders learn how to take a time tick when checking the Academy chronometers. Snapping locks is an easy task, but it is typical of the small every day jobs which, if forgotten, might cause trouble. Many a cadet has spent Saturday nights aboard be- cause he was careless in this re- pect. He learned. 93 ma K 4r REATHES there a cadet with soul so dead who never to himself has said, " What ' s Crosby got that I haven ' t? " There is nothing in the world as melodious as a couple of cadets in a shower room, each trying to prove that he is a coming Caruso. On Saturday nights especially, just before a formal dance, the shower concert is something worth hearing. Tunes vary from " Bell Bottomed Trousers " to " On the Road to Manda- lav. " Also infesting the barracks are the instrumental wizards who per- sist in practicing when someone wants to study or sleep. But all of the singing around the barracks is not of the corny brand. At Christmas time part of the corps forms a Glee Club which, on the night before leave begins, goes around and serenades the officers on the hill with Christmas carols. For the Easter Sunrise Service the Glee Club also gives forth. 94 ' " • ' ' .,- ' ' ' ■ A L» ' ' ' • ' ' - 1 ' « - ' -lt • ■» ' ' ' A : II ■5 ITH the prospect of war staring the country in the face, all military services commenced to ex- pand in 1940. The Coast Guard as a wartime part of the Navy increased proportionatelv. New officers were needed and the Academy was fast reaching its capacity. Appropriations were made, and in the summer of ' 41 new construction began. The wings of the barracks were to be extended to add fifty-two rooms to house about one hundred-fifty more ca- dets. A separate building was to be erected behind the barracks to serve as a hospital and armory. An extension to the library was started. Today this work is nearing completion, and in September the barracks will be filled to its new capacity. Proposed are improvements of the dock, including a boat- house.

Thus to the ' 43 staff went the detail of publishing in a limited time an annual representative of both classes. Then, as ofHcers came and went, the candidates for reserve commissions entered, and the whole set-up of the Acadcmv underwent change, the book had to be revised, corrected and re-edited. Our class itself may be gone before Tini. RiPi goes to press who knows?

Basis (if choice are his actual accomplishments, plus a con- sideration of his leadership and inspiration to his teammates. John Thompson of this class of ' 42 was so hon- ored. As captain of the football team he lead the Cadet eleven in its most successful campaign. High scorer in the East, he won a place on the All- New England squad, and honorable mention on the All-American Small College team. " Tommy " also lettered in tennis and basketball. J. F.

As the cadets received the kickoff and ran one play for a substantial gain, the tense-faced crowd in the stands leaned back and relaxed with a sat- isfied " ah. " The game was outstanding in many respects — Shepard ' s driving slashes off tackle, and the downfield blocking of the whole team were sensational. This downfield blocking, in- cidentally, spells the difference between a good team and a mediocre one, and is the direct result of good coaching. The final tally was 38 points for the cadets to a " swabo " for the " Rams.

However, with the apt performanceof several newcomers and the able coaching of Lieut. A. W. Johnson, the team swam well and broke even for the season. The team showed great spirit and determination all the way. In June Captain Riley, Leach, Hanninen, and Volse will leave, but Lieut. Johnson retains the nucleus of this year ' s team; and, aided by some new material from the incoming class, we should have a successful season next year.

Swicegood, Officer-in-Charge, Kelz (manager), Mark, Young, Morrill (captain), Leach, Mr. Colby, (coach) TENNIS as an intercollegiate sport is only in its fourth year at the Academy, yet it has been enthusiastically accepted by the cadets. In the past two years the team lost but two matches, and this year it looks promising enough to make the final tally read " Undefeated. " Mr. C. C. Colby with his quiet, but very helpful coaching, deserves a great deal of credit for the team ' s spirit and ability to pull through tough matches with a winning score. Bill IVIorrill, the lad from sunny Cali- fornia, captains this year ' s team and is sup- ported by veterans Leach, Young, Vaughn, and Mark, plus several newcomers of prom- ising ability. Their schedule includes: Brown University Trinity Springfield Worcester Tech. Connecticut U. A possible ace is on its way 122 Lieut. Comdr. Imlay and Captain Hansen, (coaches) and the team ' TpHE impetus given intercollegiate sailing at the Academy during the past years has for a large part been accounted (ov by the deep interest and intense efforts of Lt. Comdr. Imlay, head of the Seamanship Department. Added to ins in- spiration is the natural loveof nauticalh-minded cadets for any form of boating and the Hair tor competition tiiat characterizes good sportsmen. The team was deprived of several of its best sailors by the departure of tiie salty class of ' 42. To offset this loss of talent, however, is the addi- tion of Capt. Hansen, skipper t)f the DiDiiiiark, in an instructive capacity. His enthusiasm and per- sistent coaching has done much to convert rhe iandlubbers of yesterday to the intercollegiate sailors of today. n u n Proper distribution of human ballast keeps the boats in trim 123 Beneath the natural serenity of the sailing craft and the picturesqueness of the multicolored sails on the blue water of the Thames lies the intense alertness of coxswain and crew. To win they must have a subconscious knowledge of the set of the tide, the vagaries of the wind, the location of eddies and back currents, and above all the idiosyncrasies of the particular type of boat they are sailing. These are the fine points that make the sport and provide an interesting intro- duction to Seamanship. Our small-boat sailing fleet can accom- modate one hundred cadets at any one time, and can give them experience with five types of boats. Running free, a star boat really makes knots. Intercollegiate sailing meets are generally held with six to ten of the big- gest schools in the East competing. It is no exception to see the blue and white Academy burgee flying above the colors — another victory for the cadets. Some of the trophies for which the team sails arc the National Dinghy Championship, the Boston Dinghy Club, the Intercollegiate Challenge Cup, the New England Intercollegiate Championship, the Lucicn Sharp Trophy, and the George Owen Trophy. ctife Waiting for the start of a dinghy race. 125 .. .- • xwvwv ' Q be worthy of the traditions of the commissioned officer of the United States Coast Guard... that is the ideal of every Academy graduate.

More was to be learned, and less time was had in which to learn it. The situation called for general training which would emphasize the high points and prime essentials, and yet produce officers of the same caliber.

The class of 1944 has the misfortune of being the second hirijc class to come into the Academy - which is sonictliini like heini tlie second in a family of three or lour children.

Perhaps their most outstanding faculty is their ability to accomplish jobs of all sorts with a minimum of hubbub an ability that will stand them in good stead in the future. Mow- ever, they have yet to meet the test of first class year, which seems to do things to a class— sometimes good and sometimes bad but if determination and thorough or- ganization arc any criterion, the results should he satis- factory.
