By authority granted him, the President may direct the Coast Guard to operate under the Navy. Although con- ceived to perform ei il duties, the military organization of the Coast Guard has prepared it to carry out the opera- tions of war. On November 1. 19 11. President Roosevelt transferred the Coast Guard to the Navy Department. Thus the Coast Guard, while maintaining its corps identity, became an integral part of the Nav) to perform those duties assigned in the fulfillment of the war strategy of our nation. As in war and peace of the past, traditions of the Coast Guard assure the execution of those missions entrusted to Us the Commander-in-Chief. M{ k . KNOX Seen i.

Secretary of ilic Treasure TREASURY DEPARTMENT Since its establishment in 1790. the United States Coast Guard has performed its peace time duties under the Secretaries of the Treasury from Alexander Hamil- ton to Henry Morganthau. The history of the service demonstrates the practicahility of our serving under the Treasury Department in times of peace, thereby providing a flexibility that allows ns to perform duties for all other departments of the Federal Government. However, the military status of the Coast Guard has provided a trained and efficient military unit ready to function as a part of the av of our country in time of war. On Novemher 1, 1941. the President transferred the Coast Guard from the Treasury Department to the Navy Department. HERRERT E. GASTON Assistant Secretarj of the Treasury i VICE ADMIRAL R. R. WAESCHE Commandant, United Stan Coast Guard Although transferred to the Navy Department for the most efficient conduct of the war, the Coast Guard has remained un- der the administration of its Commandant, Vice Admiral Russell R. aesche. He is re- sponsible for the readiness and maintenenee of all Coast Guard forces, and for the performance of those missions assigned (In- Service by the Chief of Naval Operations. Charged with the execution of tlie duties entrusted the Service, the Coast Guard District Officers arc responsible directly to the Commandant; however, in all activities close cooperation is maintained be- tween the Coast Guard District Officers and the Commandants of the Naval Districts for the ac- complishment of their common mission.

The Coasl Guard ' s peacetime activities have multiplied from the original dutj of enforcing the payment f customs to Buch diverse duties as operating the International [ce Patrol and enforcing agreements concerning the regulation ..I fisheries mi the high seas. The fact thai the Treasurj department of the government has operated a military and law enforcing bodj has long served to attract the attention of efficienc) experts and reorganizers. Attempts were made to merge the Coast Guard, or its parent, with various other Federal agen- cies but have never succeeded for two reasons: i I l the need for an independent organization with the qualifications and equipment of the Service for the duties it perforins: and (2) the incontrovertible fact that the Coast Guard is one of those rare governmental Inn-cans — one that returns a profit. hen the situation in Europe became so tense that the State Department decided to re- move any chance of friction by recalling the European Squadron, a Campbell class cutter was stationed at Lisbon to take the place of the withdrawn ships. On ocasions like that when the Navy could not act without causing embarrassing diplomatic repercussions and in cases where special equipment and training is necessary, the Coast Guard lias tangible reason for existence. Efficiency of performance of all the varied duties of the Coast Guard gives the Government a return on every dollar appropriated to the Service. Proof of this is evident in every annual report when the record of every dollar ex- pended is balanced against the value of property and lives saved and instances in which the law- is enforced. Although onlj those people who earn their livelihood on the sea and those in- vesting in water-borne traffic benefit directly from the activities of the Service, still the nation as a whole derives a measure of profit since its prosperity is vitally dependent upon the safetj and regularity of commerce on all the trade routes.

Itl ' A COASTGUARDSMEN WERE AMONG THE FIRST TO LAND AT GUADALCANAL AND NORTH AFRICA ar ' s begun, schools done — that was said during the Revolutionary War, but how times have changed! The efficient operation of the most complex machine devised by man — the modern ship — calls for well-trained machinists as well as a capable deck force. To train new men for the black gang and to improve old hands, courses of instruction are held on all types of machinery. The competitive spirit between ships has been fostered in peace times by the desire of each crew to win the Engineering Prize for their vessel, awarded to the ship whose Engineering Department was operated most efficiently for a year. This and awards in other fields have combined to place the Coast Guard in the en- viable position of being the only military or- ganization of the Federal Government which pays for itself as it goes along. This Academy of ours is but one of the many- schools kept going by the Service. Enlisted personnel and officers train continually so that they maj become more completely masters of their trade — ■ beating the sea.

The most publicized and most disastrous Hood of recent years, the Ohio River flood of 1938, found the Coast Guard right in the thick of the rescue work. The patrol boats in the rivers were reinforced by those from stations on the Great Lakes and the Atlantic Coast to cope with the emergency. Loaded on flatcars and highballed over the Alle- ghenies, the latter units were on the scene of action, manned and ready to go within 18 hours. The outstanding individual exploits of that occasion were covered by the cor- respondents present; pictures and stories were published from coast to coast. So greal was the scope of the disaster how- ever that each individual episode could not possibly have been reported — the only record was the terse official report of the men concerned. These unknown heroes have only the thanks of the res- cued and their own satisfaction to re- ward them for a difficult job done well.

' lien the six hundred mile chastity belt was thrown around the Western Hemisphere, the Coast Guard Air Service joined the Neutrality Patrol to enforce the executive order. In war paint the planes logged thousands of miles searching out the violators of American neutrality. Ml officers of the Coast Guard Air Service are Pensacola- trained, so they have the Navj pilot ' s grasp of naval aerial tac- tics and the ability to handle their planes under all condition-. Vi ell accustomed to unsettled and adverse flying weather over the Atlantic, the Coast Guard aviators were easily molded into an efficient striking force against the submarine menace. This intimate knowledge of the area in which operations are carried out has made the Coast Guard flyer a valuable fighter in the crucial battle of the shipping lanes. Up and down the seaboard the sight of the vertical tail stripes of Coast Guard planes have shown the men on the ships that the Coast Guard is still on the job. The enemy also has discovered that the Coast Guard is still on the job the score of torpedoed ships has decreased to practically nothing, while the toll of lost and missing submarines has mounted steadily. The teamwork between the individual ships of the convoys and the efficiency of the escorts have caused ibis major victory over the submarine menace. The greater speed and increased range of the patrol planes have thrown the fear of God into the hearts of U-boat commanders. The sights of torpedoed tankers burning on the beaches along the Eastern seaboard is a thing of the past: the days of good hunting along the Atlantic Coast are over.

The net lender sees that any submarine that has crept in close to shore is barred from channels leading into the barbors. The credit for the first Nazi ship captured bj American forces goes to the Culler NORTHLAND. While serving under Navy orders she heard of a German ship fl in;: a Norwegian Bag oir the eastern coast of Greenland in 1941. Proceeding to the reported position, the NORTHLAND seized the Nazi ship and destroyed the weather stations that had been set up by the Germans; then she proceeded with her regular duties of maintaining a supply line to the cryolite mines in Greenland and observing ice condi- tions. The activities of the International lee Patrol are not made pub- lic in wartime. The need for such a patrol exists, and even though services over the watery grave of the victims of the Titanic dis- aster will not be held this year, the four month watch will go on. Men on ships like the MUSKEGAT cruise ahout that part of the Atlantic where east coast weather conditions are determined, relaying the information to the mainland so that the convoys and north Atlantic air ferries may have complete and accurate infor- mation concerning conditions over the ocean. On converted yachts and freighters . . . cutters are too valuahle to he used here . . . the men of the we ather patrol constantly sail in suhmarine-infested waters to get the meteorological data necessary for forecasting dis- turbances in the shipping lanes. Operating in secrecy in order to survive, these ships and men never receive the credit they deserve.

' during this war reanimate tin memon " I bygone histon The onlj feasible solution of the complex logistics problems now confronting the United Nations has been found to be convoys. Until the day when fleets of cargo planes come off the as- sembly lines of Higgins and kaiser, the protec- tion of shipping againsl marauding submarines will remain paramount in the global battle of the supply lines. The cutters are admirably suited for this work. The constructional fea- tures which make them rugged, dependable, and serviceable have enabled the men to shepherd their unprotected charges through the wolf packs. The score of tankers and freighters sunk by U-boats along the Atlantic Coast has fallen off to almost zero since the convoy system was per- fected. The sub busters of the Coast Guard have been actively engaged in this work. Millions of barrels of oil for the homes of America and the war industries of the Northeast are escorted from the oil fields of Texas and Louisiana to distribution points along the seaboard by patrol boats. These featherweights would seem to he out of their weight class if their punch wasn ' t as lethal as it is. The TNT in the ashcans car- ried furnish more than enough lo persuade an German to be a good German. As new battlefields are opened overseas the problem of transporting troops to the combat area becomes obvious; here again the Coast Guardsmen bear a hand. Personnel for the op- eration of Arm transports is recruited from the regular Coast Guard. These men get the troops through — and will bring them back in the same way — safelv and without heroic-. This duty of operating transports and ships of the supply train is an exacting one. There isn t much chance of being a World War II Horatio Hornblower when you ' re on a converted mer- chantman through the war zones. But the les- son once learned when Wake Island and the Philippines fell for lack of reinforcements will not he forgotten. The flow of material from the factories of this fighting nation to its fighting men will never be broken. A MOUNTAIN OF SEAS DEMONSTRATES IMPACT GIVEN TO SUBMARINE cSB±£ j |: IIIIII ■ U ! u i — THE RESERVATION Melon ' the establishment of the Academj in 1(°.7() li an act i l Congress, Revenue Cutter Serv- ice officers received their training in the Navy and the Merchant Marine. This training, fine as it was. as not satisfactory for the highly special- ized work done bj the Sen ice, hence the need for an institution solely for the training of officers for the Service. So in 1876, Congress established a separate school at New Bedfor d. Massachusetts. In the years following, the Academy was moved from place to place, finally being established per- manently in 1910 at Fort Trumbull, an old army fort in New London, Connecticut. In January, 1915. the United States Coast Guard was created by consolidation of the Revenue Cutter Service and the Life Saving Service. The following years saw great expansion of the Coast Guard and a sub- sequent need for a larger and better equipped Academy. In 1929. Congress appropriated about $3,000,000 for the construction of a permanent Academy. Building was started in January, 1931, and in 1932 the battalion of Cadets moved into its new home.

In the past months the causewaj has taken form along with the boathouse on Jacob ' s Hock. This one- storj structure ' vx ill house the Academy ' s 12 ft. [nternational dingh) fleel as well as serving as a convenienl nucleus for conducting the sailing regattas. The Stars and 14 ft. dinghies will lie secured along the causeway, as shown below, where they will lie easil) accessible. On the lower field, facing the Boat, will be the boat storage shed and shop where the Stars, sloops and fourteens can be conveniently stored for winter. Adjacent lo the field arc the already-completed boatbays. As for the proposed changes, it has been sug- gested that a dock office be built and so situated as to command a view of the whole waterfront. This two-story structure would serve as an in- structor ' s office, lookout station, mail desk, guard house and quarters, and fire station. It has also been proposed to add an 81) ft. extension to the old dock to increase the gen- eral docking facilities, build a new finger pier for the 83 ft. patrol boats, and provide a fire- boat, to eliminate the difficulties now present in handling the fleet stationed here. 37 HEIR ADMIRAL JAMES PI E 51PERINTENDEN1 Hi " I nited Slatet " .1-1 Guard cademj «.i- estab- li-ln cl bj .in i " i i ong ii Jul) 31, 1876 i " provide l " i ' Ii ' professional education • ■! cadets I mmissions in Hi- Coasl Guard Real Admiral James Pine i- charged with the administration •■( thi Icadem) and i- n iponsible i » 1 » • - 10111111.11111. mi ..1 ih, 1 ,,.,-i Guard foi lh« education and military training l th cadets.

Both of these neat tricks are part of the repertoire of every cadet. Aside from the insignia you can spot an upperclassman by the tightness of his monkey-jacket — growing pains — and the faded striping on his work whites.

THE METHOD IS Hi ton I k maritime mmm Today since the Coast Guard has many relations with the Merchant Marine. Marine and Boiler Inspection, supervision of harbors, sealing radios, and until recently, the training of mer- chant seamen, it is imperative that Coast Guard Officers under- stand the Merchant Marine and its economic problems. Pro- fessor Seward, of ale University brings us this understanding in his Maritime Economics course. Possessing unlimited licenses as Master and Chief Engineer, an educator of long experience, and veteran of many advisory committees to the Government. Professor Seward is eminently prepared to give the cadets authentic and up-to-the-minute information on this important study. We learn many tilings about both the passenger and the freighter trades. Most of us were surprised to find that the great superliners are relatively much less lucrative than the rusty and stolid freighter. We say that the steamship company has a hierarchy that makes the Federal Governments bureaus look unimpressive, and learned the most satisfactory scheduling of time tahles with regard to taking on and discharging carg o. All in all. Maritime " Ec " is a most satisfactory course; it relieves the monotony of the usual professional subjects, and gives the cadet an insight into another realm coached in terms lie can understand.

RICHARDS, HEAD OF DEPARTMENT that has been and still is worthy of extensive re- search on the part of the more brilliant mathe- matical and military minds of this age. It is true that a great deal of our time is spent in theoretical analysis of every aspect of this subject, but only because it is necessary. After our minds have grasped essential and important concepts, we are given an opportunity to test these principles by stripping the mechanisms, thus examining the theories in practice, and in gen- eral, viewing and verifying for ourselves the con- cepts set forth in the classroom. The courses in ordnance, ballistics and gun- nery at the Academy are designed to equip us with an extensive background of theoretical and practical knowledge of the construction, mainte- nance and use of all guns and small arms used in the Service. The purpose of this extensive course is. then, to enable us to instruct our men in load- ing drill, and in pointing and training drill, and to make us competent to assume the duties of battery officer and. after having gained service experience, to assume the duties of fire control officer. 20 MM. INSTRUCTION proi i ssoh i. it. in» i. | I ' AUIWf NT In 1941 Commander J. Barton Hoaq came to the Academy science department from the University ol Chicago where he had served on the faculty as an assistant, instructor, and assistant professor since 1922. Durinq his many years in the teaching profession, Commander Hoaq spent much time in physical research with such eminent physicists as Millikan and Compton. He specialiied in electron and nuclear physics and his textbook " Nuclear Physics " has been used by many colleges as well as the Coast Guard Academy. Recently Commander Hoaq published an ele- mentary radio text entitled " Basic Radio " . Commonder Hoag has attempted to moke the courses as practical as possible. He sent out a request to officers aboard ship to submit any practical problems for use in lieu of the usual textbook problems. •■ CHEMISTRY HI!

I In first semester i- .i studj " I mechanics and heat. I In fundamental THERMITE WELDING DEMONSTRATION laws of motion ami the practice of vector analysis give the cadet a good start toward the study of engineering mechanics which is taken up in the second class year. The heat section includes ideal steam cycles which are used as a hasis of comparison for all practical steam installations. In the second semester, cadets study wave motion, sound, and light. Such practical suhjeets as sound rang- ing and supersonic vibrations are included in the sub- ject of sound, while light includes an exhaustive study of lenses and optical instruments of the tvpe used in the Service. The remaining third of the physics course introduces the cadet to the study of electricity, and magnetism which is pursued for another year in the engineering department. The study here includes electrostatics ami electrodynamics, the physical theory of the electrical current, direct current circuits and applications, and direct current machinery. In the last month or so of the course the cadet obtains some knowledge on the subjects of corpuscular physics and photography. The corpuscular physics study is from Professor Hodg ' s book on the subject. The photog- raphy course is in the form of a group of lectures. These cover the construction of lens, shutter, and other essen- tial parts of a camera: the use of exposure meters and filters; proper exposure of the film and the theory of the latent image and proper development and printing. At first thought it may seem that the science of chemistry has little place in a service such as the Coast Guard but this is far from true. Various chemical analyses and tests control almost every part of our engineering setup. In the construction of a cutter all materials must meet certain rigid specifications. Many of the tests re- quired are chemical ones. Although Coast Guard officers seldom make these tests, they must have sufficient chemical knowledge to interpret the results. On board ship chemical applica- tions include the all important feed water test which must be made in order to maintain boiler feed im- purities below the prescribed limits. Engineering officers must also be able to interpret data supplied with fuels in order to insure proper firing. Explosives find many uses in the Coast Guard in addition to their usage in gunnery. If an officer is interested in this subject he will find his chemical background helpful in understanding their actions. inrmiiL i;uiubiu •••city is the lock of oil trades on shipboard li provides such a - eons ol distribution of that its usf increases with Mip Its fust and most obvious use is illumination.

EXPERI- MENT IN ELEC- TRICAL ENGINEER- ING LAB MMMIINIMTIOIS Tlie importance of a special communications system for marine service is evident when it is noted that no telephone wires can he run he- tween vessels, no messenger can swim the dis- tance, and no radio can he used to enable radio direction finders on submarines to locate the ship. In charge of communications instruction to the cadet corps is the Battalion Communica- tions Officer. This first classman confers with the Tactical Officer to determine what training is needed and then proceeds to prescribe avail- able time and supervise the instruction. The training begins " Swab Summer " when we are given our first semaphore instruction. From this we pass to the more frequently used PUT IT ON THE BROADCAST BAND Morse code — as sent both by radio buzzer and flashing light. Finally a thorough acquaintance with signal flags and their uses starts us think- ing about maneuvers. The distinctive part of our communications training is the unusual time of instruction. Early morning is the favorite practice time while spare quarter hours before and after meals also have their chance. The coordinating climax in this subject more than any other is the practice cruise with its signalman, radioman, and O.D. watches. The Cadet Practice Squadron supplies a fine oppor- tunity to practice, and we soon find ourselves as expeditiously conversing between ships as we do on land. lUliaTHU i D VilTH IL ASTKO OMY 2 = .

Dutton defines navigation as " the art of determining a ship ' s position at any time and of conducting a ship from one position to another. " Its importance lies in the great danger of mistaken location, both as regards natural obstacles and enemy men o " war; in the all important saving of time; and in the utilization of fuel so as to secure maximum efficiencv. Navigation is one of the few courses at the Academy that have not been drasticallv shortened in the telescoped three-year curriculum.

Daily work to be accomplished by the navigator consists of taking morning star sights to obtain an early morning fix. These sights must be completely and carefully solved by any of the numerous methods which are nevertheless lengthy in solution. A morning sun sight is taken to obtain a longitude line of position, the watch time of local apparent noon is computed, a meridian altitude sight of sun is taken, an afternoon sun sight and evening star sights are taken. Compass deviation is checked by use of azimuths of sun taken in the spare moments in the day. Extreme vigilance and skill, then, is required 24 hours of the day. The splendid record of Coast Guard navigators attests the presence of such vigilance and skill. RADIO TIME TICK methodical confidence, as we began to turn out one accurate sight after the other. We profited from navigator watches on the bridge, when we found out that it was no easy job to know the exact position at all times. The climax of the navigator watch was the day we found ourselves in the mid- dle of Block Island Sound, forced to take a sun- sight to check the dead reckoning position. What a relief to find that we were " right on. " The first class year found us still studying navi- gation—the finishing touches. This is the point at which we found out how to make a magnetic com- pass accurate, and how to keep a gyro compass precise. The Coast Guard goes everywhere and now eighty-two more navigators feel qualified to take it there. We feel sure that whether it be the Baltic or the Pacific, our commanding officers will al- wavs know exactly where we are, which direction we are going and what time we shall arrive.

Other important engineering courses- heat engineering, naval machinery, turbines and internal combustion engines— result in a complete presentation of theory, supported by a more prac- tical consideration of these concepts in the labora- tory. On the cruises, each cadet spends one third of his time on engineering duty. As a second class- man, his work, concerns the boiler room in par- ticular. Standing a regular watch, he soon learns the duties and responsibilities of a capable fire- man. He is given instruction in boilers and fire- room auxiliaries and is required to spend his available off watch time studying and preparing an engineering notebook. First class cadets also stand watches in the en- gineroom where they receive practical experience in keeping the engineering log and acquire a realization of tin- practicability and need for the courses at the Academy. He studies at first hand main propulsion machinery, condensers, feed and filter tanks, feed water heaters and innumer- able but essential auxiliary machines. ith this comprehensive background, the young Academy graduate is well prepared to em- bark on his career of training and service. Commandei M. H. Imlay is the head ol the seamanship department. Big, bluff, with a ciqar jutlmq eternally from his mouth, he forms a familiar and reassuring fiqure to every cadet who has stood a deck-watch.

Probably the greatest thrill afforded a cadet during his Acad- emy career is that moment when the Captain f the practice cutter turns the deck over to him, saying, " Ml right, Mister, she ' s all yours. ' It is expected that the cadets will actually run tlie ship. give the commands, and haul the lines; the officers stand by only to turn awa disaster il necessary. The Acadeni) is most fortunate in having a large varietj of Boating equipment. Besides the pulling whaleboats, the thirty-odd dinghies, and twelve larger sailboats, we have three comfortable schooners of sixty to eighty feet, a number of cabin cruisers loaned for tin- duration, and two sailing ships. One of these, the " ATLANTIC " , was given us in 1941 by Mr. Gerard Lambert. She was built in 1903. and still holds the record for a trans-Atlantic crossing under sail. The " DANMARK " , a real square rigger, is the former Danish training ship: when we entered the war. her service, and that of all her officers was offered us. These two ships make up the wartime practice squadron. Seamanship in the Service consists not only in carrying out routine duty but in the solution of extraordinary circumstance. Long famed as the foremost handlers of small boats, Coast Guardsmen have manned the landing boats in the first waves at Guadacanal and Africa. Skill in small boat handling has come into use in countless rescues of U-boat victims, and the proper employment of the larger vessels has contributed hugely to the sinking of an un- disclosed number of enemy craft. In wartime, as never before, it becomes necessary for every officer to have a real knowledge of the ways of his ship in wind and wave. 12 FOOT DINGHIES THE DU1IM In January, 1942, lln Vcadem) Bccl acquired ii- larg- . -i training ship, the DANMARK.

She was taking on provision for lier re- turn voyage at Jacksonville when Ger- many invaded her native land. She thereupon remained in Florida until the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. On the day of our declaration of war Commander Knud L. Hansen informed the government that: " In view of the latest days develop- ments, the cadets, officers, and captain of the Danish Government Training Vessel DANMARK unanimously place themselves and the ship at the disposal of the United States Government, to serve in any capacity the LTnited States Government sees fit in our joint fight for victory and liherty. " Since its attachment to the Academy, the ship and its personnel have heen tireless workers in the seamanship train- ing of future Coast Guard officers. Our first class summer saw all of us spending two weeks on the DANMARK — climh- ing the rigging, sleeping in hammocks, and, ahove all, absorbing knowledge from her fine staff of Danish officers. orking in a real " Square Rigger " gave us all visions of ourselves either as Columbus or Long John Silver. Since the DANMARK accommodates hut 120 cadets, four " shifts " were neces- sary to give all of us a two weeks train- ing period. Since then, the ship and its cadets and officers have heen continual- ly training classes of Candidates for Reserve Commissions. f ■ ' 1FESSOR A. . LAWRENCE, HEAD OF DE- PART V Bottom rOU DO BETTER.

S. COAST CiUARD ACADEMY LIBRARY MARITIME LAW " The Police f the Sea " was the first definition of the Coast Guard which we learned. Our firsl class year Found a law course wailing to teach ns how to be good policemen. This phase, however, proved to be hut a portion of our required law training. The course is introduced with the fundamental principles of civil law so important in our everyday contacts. From this we pass to military law and settle down to detailed study. The principles of courts martial are fully developed. Then the classroom becomes a courtroom — we are given actual experi- ence li means of a moot court. We practice on typical cases that may well repeat themselves in our service career. The result is that mistakes which would have been made in our first cases are instead made in the moot court. After courts marital we return to our police work and study Coast Guard law enforce- ment. Finally, a thorough treatment of service regulations culminates the instruction. In general, the purpose of the law course is to enable officers to rule justly over all men beneath them and to guard righteously against criminals on the sea. That it has fulfilled this purpose in the past is evident. We are fully confident that this record of the past will he equalled, if not improved, in the future. LIEUTENANT COMMANDER H. J.

Picture a competent naval leader: you see a proper figure of a man. self-confident, firm, courteous, military, and conveying the impression of being in com- mand at all times and gaining respect not so much by the gold on his uniform but by virtue of the man insiile of it. That is a high ideal but one which becomes tangi- ble as the efforts of the Academy ' s staff and organization approach the final attainment of this goal. In addition to the mental conditioning that takes place in the transition from the civilian to the officer, there is the more concrete and practical training that must be included in order to produce a qualified mariner and a well-trained fighter. In addition to the concen- trated Academy curriculum additional instruction is given under the direct supervision of the battalion officers, in connection with the tactics program. The battalion communications officer supervises in- struction of the corps in all the elements of communi- cation. From a couple of moments after reveille until a few minutes before breakfast, communication instruc- tion is given in semaphore, blinker and huzzer.

Many of us had never seen the ocean. Certainly very few of us had had anv practical sea experience. How- ever, it was better than going out completely green. S e had learned the duties of lookout, sig- nalman, messenger, helmsman, and the proper procedure to relieve each of these watches. nd above all. we had hegun to acquire a mili- tary point of view— the frame of mind that makes you drop whatever you are doing at the moment and double-time unquestioningly to a swab-call or a formation. This new mental quality of resili- ence is far from being intangible; it is one of the outstanding tangible assets of a military training. ou might think we were well imbued with this quality after a whole year of exposure to the Svstem. That ' s what we thought. At sea we imme- diately began to acquire more of this resilience. The first lew limes we were gentl awakened to g i watcb at midnight or a I lour a.m. we didn ' t know that we were being made resilient. W e just knew il made us mad. Al length, we became ac- climated lo it. Always it supplies a subject to grumble about happily. nd you know you couldn ' t have adapted yourself to it when vou were a civilian. Only a year before we were civilians ourselves, coming from all sections of the United States and her possessions. Naturally in a group of men made up of individuals from widely diverse back- grounds there is a tendency to form cliques based on common interest. Unnaturally forced to live together, we began to take on a measure of that mutual understanding and appreciation which is characteristic of the feeling that grows within a class. I said appreciation, not admiration, because we are quite aware of the faults of our classmate-. But the experience of going through a cruise to- gether is perhaps the most important factor in de- veloping the intra-class loyalty and solidarity unique in the graduates of a government acad- emy.

Then suddenly the word circulated around that we would go to Bermuda to supply the islands with water. We were told to keep the information confidential and tell only our families of the se- cret in our letters home. But our families had al- ready heen secretly informed of our new move by the headlines in the home town newspapers. Be- cause of the friends we had made and our wel- come in Morehead City, it was with extreme re- gret that we left this charming resort. Bermuda ' s legendary beauty was still there, al- though we didn ' t get enough chance to enjoy it. When we weren ' t tied up at H.M.S. Dockyard in Hamilton evaporating water, we were anchored out in the harbor. Actually, what we did see of the lovelv islands is unforgettable. From Bermuda we came home for a month ' s leave. This was the last cruise made by Coast Guard cadets in foreign waters before our entry into World War II. •rr 1 c- WORKING ON NOTEBOOKS BELOW DECK THE FIRST CLASS CRUISE With the mounting turbulence of world condi- tions, cadets " hopes for a distant foreign cruise had been shattered as early as 1940. Gone were all those visions of fair seiioritas, beating out a ring- ing staccato of high heels on the resilient wood of a South American floor: gone was the hope of perhaps seeing the mighty Amazon. And now in 1°42. with all available cutters performing im- portant wartime tasks, we began to wonder what sort of cruise, if any, we were to expect. Our an- swer was soon found in the DANMARK and tbe ATLANTIC. Our first class cruise was unique in many re- spects. For the first time in many years, the first, second, and third classes cruised together, one half of the ' " swabs " immediately after receiving their appointments. The cruise was divided into two legs, each lasting one month and carrying half the corps. Each group, in turn, spent two weeks aboard each ship. Where, in comparison with past classes, we had the disadvantage of missing target practice and a good deal of nauti- cal astronomy, we were more than compensated in that all our sailing was done by piloting— one of the most relevant phases of navigation. From the above, we acquired priceless experience. The engine rooms of both ships, though small, were truly representative, the ATLANTIC hav- ing a triple-expansion reciprocating steam engine for its main motive power, the DANMARK, an European-make diesel. Often, to gain speed, we sailed and steamed at the same time. This gave rise to an uncomfortable situation on the ATLANTIC — the boys on the leeward side of the low stack on tacking usu- ally emerged with a pair of parboiled lungs. But happily enough, they seemed none the worse for wear in the long run, in spite of their smoke-eat- ing job. ben it rained, we were never at a loss for something to do— there was always a sketch to draw or a sifiht to work out for our notebooks. 93 ANCHORS AWEIGH CETTI.U l DER HIV Although a i h i i re or lew l l bands at tin- -. amanship -lutT " having had two whole yean behind os, tailing .1 big ship especially .1 iqnare riggei ».t- .1 new experience to meal of 11-.

It will 1m- remembered that she set the record for trans-Atlantic crossings in 1905, when she made the passage from Sandy Hook to The Lizard. England, in twelve days, four hours, and one minute. That is faster than any of the old clippers or packet ships ever made on the course. Considerable publicity came to the ATLANTIC during the last war, because of the Kaisers cup which she had won in the 1905 ocean race. Her then owner, William Marshall, gave the trophy, which had been presented bv Kaiser W ilhelm and was supposed to be solid gold, to the government to be melted down to purchase war material. It turned out that the cup was pewter, thinly gold coated. When the Coast Guard inquired of her owner, Commodore Lambert of the New York Yacht Club, with a view toward buying her, the Commodore gave her outright.

THE SKIPPER TAKES OVER MIND YOUR HELM hen a young ensign reports aboard a cutter for duty it is not infrequent that he is told " Welcome aboard! You have the four to eight watch tomorrow morn- ing. " The Coast Guard believes in break- ing in their junior officers fast. Evidently this doctrine was kept well in mind, with every cadet having watches in at least two different duties every two days. First classmen stood officer-of-the-deck, radio- man, engineer, navigator, and coxswain watches. Second classmen stood helms- man, junior engineer, signalman, quar- termaster, and junior navigator watches. Third classmen were orderlies and look- outs, anchor watch in port. Like the Gil- bert and Sullivan policeman, the O. D. ' s lot is not a happy one. His responsibility is that the ship ' s mission be safely car- ried out. On duty for a full watch, he gives orders to the helm, sees that every watch stander carries out his duties cor- rectly, and records all occurrences in the ship ' s log.

The second half hrought more spectacular play than the first, and four touchdowns were scored h the hlue-elad cadets. Drury ' s 47 yard punt re- turn for a touchdown was the most sparkling play of the game. The following week at Middlehury the Cadet squad again started slowly and did not score until well into the second quarter. After the first squad finally did score, Captain Edward R. Tharp of Sha- mokin, Pennsylvania has played and loved football since he was in high school. He played tackle on a championship high school team, end for the North Carolina State frosh, and tackle for CGA for two years.

They scored first on power in the second quarter. Later in the same quarter, a Coast Guard punt was hlocked. which led to the second Huskie score. The visitors scored on a safety in the final period when a had pass from center left Drurj stranded behind the goal line, making the final score 16-0. The season was a highly successful one. with only the two losses. Either game might easily have gone the other way if played under more favorable circumstances, and the Academy has every right to he proud of its 1942 eleven. Ten lettermen will he lost by graduation. Thirteen lettermen will return under the leadership of John Austin as captain. Top to Bottom: FRANK CARTER. ART HANCOCK.

COMDR. C. C. KNAPP, COACH. CROSS COUNTRY Deprived of practically all the veteran runners by two gradu- ations, our harriers still turned in a successful season. Total newcomers were Vogelsang, Grosjean, and Seehorn; the others, semi-veterans. Our coach, Lieutenant Commander C. C. Knapp. assisted by Captain Charles " Sleepy " Valaer, and Manager R. A. Pasciuti, did a remarkable job with the available material. The first meet with Worcester was an easy victorv with Grosjean lead- ing our bovs in. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute descended upon us a week later with bitter defeat. Next was Amherst, who yielded to us a bard-earned one-point victorv. Two weeks later, spurred on by our coach ' s " pep-talk " , we ran Weslevan on our shortened course to win. Somewhat confident with three wins under our belt, we hit Springfield and ran a wet course to place fourth in the Connecticut Valley Championships. Next year should see a super X-country team. There are plenty of good men remaining, and if George can refrain from running over those extra hills, we may also have a star. THE TEAM JOGS AROUND THE COURSE TOGETHER CROSS COUNTRY REC ROOM WARM-UP EXERCISES MAY I HAVE THE NEXT DANCE? BOXING When the call was issued for candidates for the 1943 boxing team, one hundred and ten cadets out of a three hundred cadet battalion reported for practice. This was a great turnout and a fitting beginning for a big season. There were but three varsitj boxers returning so the early season prospects for a good team seemed slim but the entire squad showed a high spirit from the very beginning and the outcome of the hard work was a typical Coast Guard boxing team — rough and ready but ever mindful of the ideals of good sportsmanship. Graduation will see such boys as Captain Rufe Drury, Bill Wallace, Dan Scalabrini and many others hang up their gloves at C. G. A. Captain Drury is from Mobile, Alabama, and has been boxing varsity ever since he came to the Academy. Bill Wallace is our 127- pound boxer, who performed this year as the most dependable point winner on the team. Dan Scalabrini held down the 155-pound position, boxing for the first time this year. The other graduating boxers did not have regular varsity positions but formed a major part of any good team — the reserves. All these men will be a loss to the team; however, an enthusiastic and ambitious gang of underclassmen will be waiting for the chance to fill these boxing assignments. LIEUT.

CAUGHT ON THE REBOUND BASKETBALL It seemed that excitement and basketball were synonymous this year as the Cadet hoopsters waged successful war on all comers from the neighboring institutions with close games and overtime periods the rule rather than the exception. This was most evident in the first three games when the stalwarts started the season off at Storrs beating the U of Conn team in a 5-minute overtime. As well as being the first victory of the season it was also the first victory over the Connecticut basketball team in many years. The second game, against Amherst, was a hotly contested, nip and tuck affair that finally ended at 43-44 with Amherst the victor. The team also took an overtime game from ale in Everyone joins in the mad rush to the gym to witness tonight ' s gala performance by our squad of hawk- eyes, viz. the basketball team. Led by Ken Vaughn and coached by Nelson Nitchman and Smiling Jack Forney, they now sharpen up their shooting eyes, giving everyone in general, and the gals in particular, a preview of tonight ' s events. The band is in rare form — they climax with Dixie and encore with Yankee Doodle. The referees limber up on the bicycles. The managers dash madly around. Has anyone seen that new set of rubber patches for the ball? The team gathers ' round to comfort the coaches and to get the latest war news and — maybe plan some monkey business. Confusion is king! . . . All is ready. The teams line up. The ball is tossed. Up go a pair of nymph-like critters. The game is on.

RIFLE MD PISTOL Encountering a field of rifle competition somewhat depleted by ammunition shortages due to the war, the cadets were, neverthe- less, able to round out a full season of matches. Combining physical excercise with long hours of practice on the range, the squad upheld the record established by other sports in recent years by developing an excellent team which reflects pride in the Academy in particular and in the Coast Guard in general. Finding needed talent in the third class to fill the shoes of those team members of the previous year who had graduated, the team set out to duplicate if not better the record of that year, when the Academy team won first place in the intercollegiate postal match competition and hard-fought second places in the local Mohegan league and the intercollegiate district finals held at the Academy. Credit should also be given to the pistol team which, new ly organized, showed exceptional skill in intercollegiate matches. RIFLE TEAM— Front Rote: BERKMAN; FONDAHL; winship.

Taylor, the team coach. Acknowledged as one of the best rifle shots in the country, Mr. Taylor has on many occasions brought dis- tinction to the servi ce while represent- ing the Coast Guard in the annual Camp Perry rifle competitions. Possessing the prized award of Distinguished Marksman, of which there are very few in the nation, Mr. Taylor is well qualified to pass on to the team the " know-how " of rifle firing. And proud is the cadet who can boast of having won a " Frosty Bit " from " The Chief " in after practice shooting. 117 SWIMMING " Judges and timers ready. ' ' A hush draws over the crowd.

It ' s an odd sensation stepping up to the mark in a swimming race. Breathing, muscles . . . everything seems to function only with difficulty. Somehow your stomach turns over whenever you think of that last lap soon before you. The report of the starter ' s gun dispels all this. You ' re not conscious of anything until you ' ve swum two laps. You scan your field and from then on try to have each stroke count to pull you ahead. Training slowly manifests itself as your endurance meets its test. Finally you approach that last turn. You notice a swimmer sprinting ahead. You pull hard into the turn, spin quickly, and shove off for the challenge. Sometimes you can hear the roar of the crowd as you slowly draw abreast of your opponent. It ' s a constant din until you thrash out for the touch and pray your team-mates will pound your head and arms saying, " Swell race, fella, you won! " George Poulos, C.B.M., our new coach, started early in the term to develop the team and found an inspired squad training for hard competition. Ton of last year ' s tallicrs again turned out, among them Captain Adams, Moore, Evans, Norris, Hancox, and Allan, for whom this is the last season.

SAILING Sailing has always been a fundamental interest at the Academy. With six tvpes of sailing or racing craft at his disposal, every cadet has ample opportunity to become well versed in a knowledge of sail. Each weekend finds many cadets sailing the Thames for pleasure, while the more pro- ficient match their skill in numerous intercollegiate regattas scheduled by the Academy ' s Boat Club or the Inter-Collegiate Yacht Racing Associ- ation of which the Academy is a member. Whether it be for pleasure or in competition, all cadets realize the importance of sail in their chosen career, for time spent on the Thames will prove valuable practical train- ing in mastering the behavior and effects of weather, winds and tides. Of particular interest this year in connection with the sailing team are two new coaches, Lieut. Walter C. " Jack " Wood, and his assistant, Lieut. (j. g. ) Leonard M. Fowle, Coast Guard Reserve officers. " Jack " Wood, nationally known Star Class skipper and yachtsman, came to us from M. I.

" ' ■■■■•10 SHOT STARBIH i- ROM THE BACK COURT BOXING FUNDAMENTALS ARE DEVELOPED IN THE RING imAMURALS " Intramurder, " like everything else, has suffered sweeping changes since the war. In years past, intramural sports featured games in each of the seasonal spoils, and the contests were dis- tinguished more by the vehemence than the athletic attainment of the players. With the accelerated program, the need of physical conditioning was felt, and " Billy " Taylor, known of yore as the official in many Academy boxing rings, was called in. Mr. Taylor has conceived a course which offers many opportunities. Cadets can now fall from ten-foot barriers, rock formations, stone walls, horizontal ladders, balance bars, or hanging ropes: if they prefer, they can merely trip over a hurdle. Each day ' s period begins with a brisk twenty minute calisthenic drill, which leaves us prone on the ground, gasping for breath. Then Mr. Taylor cheerily sug- gests that we go over the course, starting by leaping the barriers, clambering over the rocks, running backward up a hill, and for- ward down the same hill. Then we leap over the hurdles, climb a wall, run along the wall to the foot of the football stand. Not content with standing there, we run from bottom to top and back about three times, and end it all by leaping from the top of the stands to the ground below. Swinging from rung to rung along a ladder, we come to a number of suspended ropes. e climb the ropes, and the end in sight, walk perilously along a balance bar to the end of the field. Finished? Not yet: we still have to sprint the last four miles down to the waterfront, out the new ramp, use the auto turnabout for three or four cartwheels and finally finish the last league in a ' ' dead " heat. Creeping toward the shower, we swear off candy and cigarettes, and think what an easy life the Commandos must live. Top: BOXING GLOVES MUST BE PUT ON CORRECTLY.

" Supervision of this continuously expanding schedule of training of intramural and intercollegiate ath- letes provides a man-sized job for our physical eduaction staff. To assist the staff and somewhat lighten its burden the Academy Athletic As- sociation was founded. The A. A. A. supervises and controls all inter- collegiate and intramural sport9, maintaining a policy in keeping with that of the Superintend- ent, its honorary president. Though the organi- zation includes resident and associate officer members in addition to the corps of cadets, the work of the organization is carried on by its cadet officers, elected annually from the bat- talion. Questions of awards, which sports the Academy shall participate in, and other matters pertaining to the athletic program are taken care of in the meetings, which are held under sup- posedly parliamentary procedure in the mess hall. The association elects cheer leaders and mess committees; supplies all athletic teams with equipment, transportation, and proper officials for intercollegiate contests; and in general, sup- ports the entire athletic program of the Academy. ?,i ft™ I A Kl TEN ANT ( .( )M M AND ER J.

Witli formal hops, informal , football games in the fall, basketball and boxing in the winter, movies in McAllister Hall, class parties and picnics, band concerts, and afternoon teas, it is a very rare week tbat tliere is not some social activity taking place on tbe reserva- tion. Then, too, cadets are fortunate in having Connecticut College so near. After all, what is a dance without a girl? Week end liberty for first classmen enables those unhampered by " trees " and " spots " to get away from the Academy occasionally to visit friends and relatives. The Academy Band might be called the social " back-bone " of the Academy: for it furnishes music for our dances, close order drill, athletic contests, chapel services, radio programs, and band concerts. The versatile band plays difficult classics, stirring marches, or tuneful dance melodies with equal ease. Although monthly formal hops with corsages, monkey jackets, white gloves, receiving line, and surprising refreshments bear the stigma of " all cadets are invited and will attend, " everybody has an enjoyable time. Wednesday afternoon teas on the hill enable us to become better acquainted with our officers and their families, enabling us to get a preview of our future life as officers. POPULAR SPOT AT FORMAL DANCES— REFRESHMENT TABLE A TYPICAL WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON ON THE HILL Innovations in social activities in- cluded parties and Sunday afternoon teas. Hallowe ' en fell on a Saturday this year and what could be more appropriate than a Hallowe ' en Party ' ? Apples, donuts, cider, haystacks, witches, and goblins gave the proper atmosphere. Hilarious entertainment was provided by slap-stick comedy and skits by the college girls and rebuttal by the cadets. Music for dancing was furnished by recordings over the amplifying system. The new classrooms in McAllister Hall proved to be very popular for social gatherings. These rooms are bright and cheerful and large enough for dancing. The first party held in the new class rooms was a great success. Dancing to the music of the first class radio-victrola in one room; and re- freshments, table tennis, bridge and soft chairs in another offered a splendid time to an enthusiastic gathering. On Sunday afternoons, these rooms are open to cadets as a place to entertain their visitors. Tea is served from four to five o ' clock. Here is a convenient place where a cadet can take his guests for relaxation and conversation. L31 ii i.

I, ' , -.ix.- in ord 1 i " have 1 lull idea ol thi Vcademi in I ' M I Since February, 1942, Reserve cadets have lieen undergoing a course of instruction at the Academy, consisting of one month as appren- tice seaman, then three months as a cadet. Physical requirements are strict, menial require- ments perhaps stricter. At first only college graduates were admitted as Reserve cadets; now it is possible for men who have served three iix ti t lis on sea duty to receive appointments as Reserve cadets upon the recommendation of their commanding officer. The result of successful completion of the training course is a Reserve commission in the Coast Guard. From then on the Reserve officers may be called upon to engage in many kinds of duties. For example, many of the Reserve classes are trained specifically for anti-submarine work on the 83-foot patrol boats. Several of these useful craft are stationed, ready for instant action, at the Academy, and they are in con- stant use for training purposes. In below-zero weather these tough vessels ease into the dock, completely encrusted with ice, looking pic- turesque, but decidedly uncomfortable. An assignment a trifle less spectacular than anti-submarine patrol is port security work. However, this work is nonetheless essential to the war effort, since it is equally important to insure the proper safety of the ports of embarka- tion as to keep open the shipping lanes. It is largely on the shoulders of Reserve officers that the responsibility for port security rests. Many Reserve officers are now on duty on regular cutters of the Service, standing watches along with regular Academy graduates. Any success they may have in this status is dependent on the extent of their training as cadets, such as they absorb aboard the DANMARK. training vessel used by all cadets. More Reserve cadets have been graduated in the last year from the Academy than the total number of regular officers graduated from the Academy in its entire history, from 1876 to the present time. We must depend on them. Top: WATCH STANDING ABOARD DANMARK FAMILIARIZES RESERVES WITH THE PROPER HANDLING OF SHIPS AND GIVES PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THEIR SEAMANSHIP TRAINING.

The new first class gave us complete charge of the indoctrination of the swabs, which seemed like a big order at first, but which we soon tackled with a will. Let no man scoff at the pride of accomplishment. To take one hundred fifty raw civilian kids, and whip them into an erect, military band of cadets is a task which offers considerable satisfaction as its results slowly be- come manifest. As the three class system developed it became evident that on the second class devolved the job of giving continuity to the Academy as an organ- ization which will last no matter how many first classes graduate. It was this obligation which brought out among our classmates many qualities of leadership and ability which neither we nor they were aware they posessed. The Commandant? Oh yes, here he is ... .

They realize that this is the commencement of a career ot training and service in work both hard and glorious. These men have studied diligently at the Academy and on the summer cruises have worked hard at learning to become competent officers. They have scrubbed decks, stood lookouts, tended boilers; and then, as this experience rendered them more competent, have stood watches on the bridge, been responsible for the safe navigation of the ship, and seen to the proper care and handling of the ship ' s machinery in the engine room. Under supervision of line officers, they have done just about everything they will do in earnest alone — in the years to come. As a result of the excellent instruction from the officers here at the Academy and the patient and competent training on the ship9 in the summer cruises, these men are ready to become " commissioned offi- cers in the United States Coast Guard in the service of their country and human- ity.

HHHI S hen a man enters the academ y for the first time, he finds that the Academy life is as unfamiliar to him as life in any foreign country could he. Even the language seems strange. How could a man fresh from civilian life he expected to understand such words as ' " ram " or " papped " ? The " Running Light " is published for the guidance of the incoming class. It contains a history of the Academy and attempts to explain man of the customs and traditions which have come into being during the sixty-seven years of the Academy ' s ex- istence. Duties and responsibilities of the Coast Guard both in war and peace are described and there is a complete description of all classes of cutters now in service. In order to help men choose the sports which they wish to participate in, a complete section of the book is devoted to sports. Available equipment is described and letter require- ments are listed. Words to all songs and yells are included for those cadets who make up the cheering section. Probably the most widely used section of the " Running Light " is the calendar of Academy events. This gives the date of all sporting events, formal dances, lectures, cruises, and exami- nations. In the past year several thousand copies of the " Running Light " ' have been sold to Reserve cadets to help them gain a better understanding of customs and traditions of the Service and the Academy.

That Bame car, when ground was broken at the Acad- emy, and in " 32, when the cornerstone was laid. the band provided music for each occasion. During the New York World ' s Fair in 39. the hand took part in radio programs from the Coast Guard exhibit through station WJZ. On Coast Guard Day. the hand played on a program which included a short talk by the Commandant. Admiral Waesche. At the first annual celebra- tion of the merging of the Coast Guard and the Lighthouse Service the hand played on a hook- up with Cape Henry Light. Headquarters in Washington, D. C. and the Coast Guard Exhibit at the Fair. Probably the biggest single radio program the band ever played on was " Defense for America " in May of 1941, a coast-to-coast, all network program which included a talk by- President Roosevelt. On the other hand, according to Charlie Mes- ser, the biggest event in the band ' s career oc- curred on the second of August, last year, the be- ginning of Coast Guard Week in Boston. Under the direction of Commander Phannemiller, Per- sonnel Procurement Officer for the district, a mass induction was conducted. The hand gave a concert in Hatch Memorial Shell on the hanks of the Charles River with Arthur Fiedler, con- ductor of the Boston ' " Pops " ' Orchestra, as guest conductor leading them in the National Anthem. The present series of broadcasts was started in August of last year, but was not sent coast-to- coast until the broadcast of September 26. Since then, it has been short-waved to all parts of the world. Letters of congratulations have been re- ceived from Headquarters, officials of NBC, and from 48 states and Canada. One week a recruit- ing " plug " was read on the program, and results were so overwhelming that it had to he dropped from the script. Growth of the band from its original 19 has been slow and painful. The first addition oc- curred after the 1929 Inaugural Parade.

The clari- fiers contain patented Fuller ' s Earth Block refills which remove all engine-corroding acids and sludge-forming gums and resins. This keeps the oil " refinery pure " at all times and offers complete protection against common causes of engine trouble. BRIGGS C £t 4 e co. 1VW Iftl 1339 WISCONSIN AVE. I WASHINGTON, D. C. Hundreds of Coast Guard Cutters are today equipped with Briggs Oil Clarifiers. Even as far back as 1938, when they were first installed on Cutters, their performance warranted the Coast Guard ac- cepting them as preferred filtering equipment. Now Briggs Clarifiers are doing a top-quality maintenance job by reducing engine wear and eliminating un- necessary engine breakdowns.

V V 1, Sighting on victory ...seeing beyond FOR the ships and men of America ' s Merchant Marine, winning the war is today ' s one and only job. That ' s the way America ' s merchant navy has pitched in and battled, side by side with America ' s fighting navy, in every crisis in our country ' s history which involved the freedom of the seas. But though we keep steady on our course in this war by sighting on the sun of victory we can ' t help seeing a vision beyond. And that vision of a bright future for the American Merchant Marine gives added strength to our fighting efforts. In such a great new era, the ships of AGWI and its subsidiaries will play their part, plying between the Americas, as they have for more than one hundred years . . . fostering vital trade and commerce . . . furthering unity and friendly relations between the United States and our Good Neighbors to the South.

Perhaps he invoked the powers that be to help him in this seemingly hopeless task. Perhaps he turned away discon- solately, muttering. But if he did, we never knew it, because whenever he addressed us — on the subject of work-to-be-done, exclusively, if I remember — it was always a man, sure of himself, in control of the situation who never assigned a detail that he couldn ' t do himself or that he hadn ' t done myriad times. et a broad smile to appreciate the groan of the third class- man watching for his appearance just after morning colors.

Here Was Cradled Tradition The record of the United States Coast Guard is one of the most luminous of all the brilliant pages of American history. For many scores of years this organization of stalwarts has not only served valiantly in time of war. but every peace-time disaster has found its members ready for immediate and effective duty. The deep sea sailors, those who man the craft on inland lakes and waterways, refugees of the flood districts — all of these will attest to the valor and resourcefulness of the Coast Guard.

Coast Guard Patrol Boats depend on speed and stamina. Hence their need for shafts of Monel. For other vital parts of CGC ' s, this strong, corrosion-resistant metal is also specified. Couplings, strut bolts, mani- folds, radio antenna and parts of listening devices and depth bombs are all made of " Seagoin ' Monel. " In these and scores of other places on hundreds of fighting sea craft, Monel is helping defeat the Axis. When that job is done, Monel will again be available for you.
