In the early morning houis ol a |une (ia a tciiilii underwater explosion wracked the stiud little vessel, and she disappeared before distress signals coidd Ik- sent. No sound wa licard by the other members of the escort, antl the first sign ol ti()id)k ' on the ESCANABA was a dense cloud of yellow and black, smoke. Ihe cutters STORIS and R, RIT. N, nearest members of the escort, rushed to the scene, arri ing ten minutes after the disaster. All that could be found were two sin i iirs and the body of a third. The E,SCAN. BA, commanded by Lt. Comdi. Carl U. Peter- son, had lived an eventful and useful life before she answered her last call to dutv. Lauiuhed in i9;?2, she had worked exclu- sively on the Great Lakes until the outbreak of the war, serving as an icebreaker in winter and as a patrol i)oat in sunmier. Dur- ing the Chicago Vorld ' s Fair the task of proNJding ])i()terti )ii to a squadron of visiting Italian airplanes was assigned her. At the outbreak of the war she moved to the North .Vtlautic to take up her duties as a convov escort. In jmie. 1942, she was credited with the sinking of two enemy submarines. Later she rescued 22 members of a merchantman torpedoed in the same convoy. Early in 1943 she participated in another rescue with the cutter COMNL NCHE. Between the two vessels, 226 survivors were picked up. Officers and crew mend)ers of the sturdy ESCA- N. B. willinglv went over the side iiuo the cold North . tlantic to pick up men unable to help themselves. As a result of this operation, one officer and two crew members were posthumously awarded the Navv and Marine Corps medal; Lt. Conulr. Peterson received the Legion of Merit posthumously and Lt. Robert H. Prause. the executive officer, got a Letter of Commendation. Ilie E,SC. X. B. died as a cutter would want to die — in the line of dutv. |pe iSk: • ' ■- ' ™ (■v.

With heaiis lull ol joy we rolled our work wiiites and s(iiiashed them into a canvas bag, for we were going to sea. Over- burdened with gear we trudged the endless miles to the dock and i)oarded two shi])S v ' hich inuiie- diately reminded us of tales of .Sir Francis Diake and }ean LaFitte. Soon afterwards they became too familiar to us as just the ATL. NTIC and the DAXMARK— words which bring to mind an era of pushing the end of a .swab, polishing brass, jjulling on lines and climbing rigging. The nightlv c ries of " liberty party on deck " meant nothing to us, for we were the lowliest of the lowly— just swabs. It didn ' t take long for us to become familiar with our new home, though. Soon we almost learned how to be comfortable in a hammock: we had to, sleeping on the deck was an upperclass rate. Too, we learned to recogni e every city on Long Island Sound by its water- front.

S. jHdoctmatloH I ' crhaps no otlier word used at the Acadeiin covers as much ground as " indoctrination. " Broadly speaking, it refers to those acti ities vliich tend to replace civilian attitudes and thoughts by Coast Guard mental processes. Nat- urally, the effects of indoctrination are felt most in the underclasses where men are not far away from civilianism. Every phase of a cadet ' s life is influenced by indoctrination. If he has been properly indoc- trinated, he no longer regards regulations as a necessary e il. but as just another of the facts of life. It becomes second naiiuc for a cadet to juniji out of his bed at a bugle call, climb into his coki clothing, care for his personal needs and make a formation in ten minutes time— a fact which may some dav stand him in good stead hen the general alarm soimds on his ship. Immetliately after this process, morning after morning, he is marched to the dock for boat drill on the not- always-still Thames. Here he learns the han- dling of small boats, another usefid art in a C oasi Guard career. At meals upjjerclassmen may plv him with (picstions concerning the service in general— ques- tions which are not considered in the crowded Academy cmricidiuii.

J he nioie ad ancecl one ' s knowledge becomes in naviga- tion, engineering or science; the niore one realizes that our present mode of lite would be impossble were it not tor Etulid, Napier and others of their kind. 1 he Academy rurricuhnn in math includes two vears, the first ot which ccners the same groinid as is covered in two years by most colleges— trigonometry, college algebra, slide rule, analytical geometry and ditferential and integral calculus. In the second year engineering mechanics and mechanics of materials are considered. For the most part, cadets are well equipped to handle this accelerated program of mathematical training since their appointments are to a large degree basetl on mathe- matical ability and background. The ctficient faculty in mathematics is headed by Cap- tain Chester E. Dimick, who has retired and been called Ixick to active duty to complete the present academic year.

In the fnst-class year Professor A. A.

I ' rofessor Lawrence, head ot the department, is well yersed in maritime studies.

Now the tables have been turned to a limited extent, and the education angle is gi en some consideration.

There is hardly a cadet who at one time or another hasn ' t entered the mess hall to find his scat taken 1) a choii member eating carh in order to attend one of the two or three practices held a week. Lt. Messcr started the group, and Lt. C. C. Hiird took over the direction al oiit two vears ago. The dioir frequently combines with that of Coiuiecticut college to form a mixed group for chapel services. Officers are R. G. Schwing. president; W. R. Banks, business inanager, and W. G.

He had gone scarcely ; oo yaids when he came upon thice men on the beach — one in (i ilian dot lies and the others in bathing suits. The men in bath- ing suits were in knee-deci) water: the other, on the beach. Cullen accosted the men. ' i ' hc man on sliore approached tiie roastgnardsman in a threatening manner. Disregarding a second (liallenge, he continued his adxaiKc. Unarmed, Cullen reached into his |)( (k(i liii ;i llaslilight. Ihinking the seaman was reach- ing lot a gun. the stranger shouted. " Wait a minute. Arc you of the Coast Guard? " The men tried to identify themsehes as clam fishermen. Cullen knew there were no clams in the icinii . Ijut was unable to o erpower the men. He accepted their offer (A $300 for looking the leader straight in the eye and saying he )uld loiget the whole incident. Once again enshrouded in the mist, Cullen raced to his station to report the incident. . n armed partv of coasignardsmen rushed o the scene, but were unable to find the men. However, a glimpse of a long thin oijject was seen through the fog, accom- panied b the sound of Diesel engines. The partv returned to the station where Cullen turned o er the money given him — $260 by actual count. In the morning the search was resumed; German dothing. cigarettes and inaterial for the making of inccndiai v bombs were found. With the men in unknown locations ashore, the case was given to the FBI which successfully concluded it with the arrest of all three men. n Second classmen concern themselves irilli those swab hriices.

The cadet is not merely taught to follow a form and sohc sights with a few simple additions and subtractions (il numbers picked from a table. He is led through the entire development of the science from its mathematical origin to the latest methods. Special emphasis is placed cm piloting, the most dangerous phase of navigation and (iiie met often in Coast Guard work. Practical experience in the use of navigational instru- ments is gained on the summer practice cruises. Cadets are constantly taking sights, both when on watch and when off watch, for a cotnplete navigation notebook is necessarv for a passing cruise mark. The final quarter is spent learning the mysteries of com pas.ses— gyro and magnetic— and how to keep them true. The department is headed bv Comdr. W . P. Hawley. He is assisted by Lt. Comdr. C. B.

O ' CioNxoR Head of engiiietning dejMirtmeut Ueing the cadet ' s main course of study, the marine engnieering department is naturally the largest at the Academy. It includes such diverse subjects as drafting, wood and metal shops, engineering materials, thermo- ilynamics, naval machinery, na al construction and dam- age control. Manv of these subjects will i)e considered separately in this book. Like most first-year engineering students, thirtl class cadets get their indoctrination into mechanical studies in shop. During the first month at the . cademy thcv are given a brief coinse in wood sho[). This is supple- mented dining the second class year with a metal shop course. To complete this clemcntar backgroinid the study of engineering materials is added. From this foundation ol hnw machines are constiiiued and constructed, cadets are led into the more involved studies of ships— naval mathinery which concerns itself with every mechanism which is necessary to ojjerate a modern ship and naval construction which concerns the building of the ship itself. General marine engineering Icttures bv Capt. G, R. O ' Connor based to a large extent on his own experiences serve to make the subjects more vivid to cadets.

Sugar-coated with the more palatable name of luai engineering or energy analysis, thermodynamics ai ilu- Acadetnv is a rugged coinse. Dealing primarih wiih steam, its jirocesses and its idiosyncrasies, the sidjject also includes studies of air compression, refrigeration and combustion. To add a practical rather than theoretical viewpoint to the course, the subjects under consideration are con- sidered in connection with the naval machines in which they might Ije found.

These yachts have lieen placed at the disjiosal of cadets to give them further practice in seamanship. Any group of six or seven cadets can gain their use for a weekend bv the simple expedient of an official letter. There ' s a certain feeling of freedom aboiu being aboard a sailing ship in a fresh breeze, but, on the other hand, foul weather can make life miserable, in either circumstaiuc the cadets seem to wani lo sail, for the schedule nl these ciafi is full from caiK s] rii),t; till late fall. Usually the destination of such a party is some nearby port such as Green|)ort or .Saxhrook. Liiierty, as is usual with cadets, ])lays an important part in the selection of a port.

Zhe Class of 1947 riic class of 1947 came with the ihrce-ycar system firmly established in Academy routine. Swab summer —the customary period of getting actjuainied with the fundamentals of service tradition and organization — had been reinsiituted. We spent long hours in signal- ing practice, seamanship and small arms; most of us were getting our first ex])ericnrc in the manner in vhich a military service carries on instruction and instills militarv routine into civilians. Our first break in ihe theoretical study came with the cruise on the Soiuul aboard the ATL.A.NTIC and the D. , I. RK. For many it ; ' as the first time aboard a vessel of any type. For others, an opportunity to ] iu into practice the profits of past experience. For all. hard work, an increasing knowledge of funda- mental seamanship and a first hand familiarity with tlie dreariness of rolling out for a mid-watch on a cold fall night. All I Ills was bill a pi elude: the fust da ' after the return of the iip])erclass was a re elation as to how much coidd i i packed into a day. Coupled wath a full-lime academic course we had the personal atten- tion of everyone senior to us to make certain we wasted no time. Every waking moment was spent in study, physical conditioning, drill, indoctrination and in acquiring an instinctive response of " Yes, sir, " or " Aye, aye, sir, " as the situation warranted. Throughoui nui swab year we looked en iously to the class of iij fi and their second class rates. We looked forward to the dav when we could saunter along the passageways, rounding corners, talking, not worry- ing about getting washed and shaved in minutes be- fore hitting the course from liiird deck north to first south. Then came June week and our goal was in sight— a general relaxing of our restrictions between endless drills, reviews and competitions— a fierce desire to win the platoon and company competitions as a climax to the year— then, with the results out, the scpielching of the victors as tlicy crowed.

We picked up the technical language that had baffled us previously as wc had listened to the uppcrclass discussions at the table.

Responsil)ilit hits a cadet with a jolt when he becomes a first classman. Up till this time he has found life nnjjlcasant at times, but he didn ' t have much to worry about outside his lessons. Now he has a great deal to say concerning the Academy. His decisions affect the entire corps. He must stand his regular turn as cadet officer- of-the-day. He must watch for violations of the rcgidations. In short, it ' s up to him to see that things run smoothly. The Academy system is designed that way so he ' ll have a chance to feel responsibility while there ' s still a guifling hand arf)und in case things go wrong. A first classman ' s thoughts also luiii t() ar(l I lie Service in general as distinguished from the corps. There ' s nothing he wants more than to be able to go out in the Service and make good— both for himself and for the . cadeniy. He ' s not serious all the time though.

Jirst Class Cruise Last summer the classes of 194(1 and 1947 made the first open water cadet cruise since the beginning of the war. For this purpose the classes ivere di- vided into two groups— one sailing on Long Island Soiuid and visiting Camp Lejeune and the na al anti-aircraft training center at New|)ort while the other steamed down into the Gulf of Mexico on the cutter COBB. Life aboard the COBB, a ship formerly used as an experimental helicopter carrier, was made iin- cnjoyable bv the (ondiination of an intense interna heat and an e(]uallv intense tropical sun.

" Incidentally, this characteristic is most outstanding when dealing with women. He can ' t be everybetty ' s beau, l)ut he tries. His comment is " Who wants to say no? " — which is a good cpiestion. We used to ha e a lot of trouble locating the Frog around the barracks, but we finally got the ;an and found that when he wasn ' t plaving baseliall or fooling around with the Kaydet orchestra, wc could trv looking under the shoe rack in his locker.

It is best not to rely on his stinny disposition until after break- last, because the exertions of the early morning routine often make him unreasonable. His ability lo smile in the face of adversity is probably due lo his unshakaljle belief that lie tan always make a li ing digging clams on the beach in Fairfield, Connecticut, where the naii es still shudder at the escapades of his more yoiuhfid days. .Sunny is auoilui of our classmates who has been smitten by (Ui|)id ' s arrows, which accoiniis Im his inau lecent trips to ' onkers, and the lar-awa lof)k in his e cs on .Sunday nights. His ability as a fuiure amjjassador ol good will is attested to by the plainti e letters (in .Sj)anish) whiili (oii tinned to arrive for week.s after oiu- return from the cucliaiiird isle in the Carribbean. His affection for shower baths and hiiglii ( ity lights is exceeded only by his ahiiiiv to ( ompjctc his diiiies in time to make the first lil crty ])arl . . s long as cigarettes are nianufactured and the mail is delivered.

Their rugged construction enables them to meet all steam demands and they have never met their end point in steam production.

When the war began we had 11,000,000 dead- weight tons of merchant shipping. Today with over 50,000,000 tons, the United States stands first as a maritime power. Such fantastic tonnage growth alone would ha e been meaningless had there not been a well-estab- lished American shipping industry to e.xpand with this giant fleet and nm it, under the supervision of the War Shipping Administration. We had that industry — and during the past thirty- six months the steamship companies of the United States have not only contributed their own vessels to the wartime shipping pool, but have also taken on the tremendous job of operating the hundreds of new Libertys, C-l ' s, C-2 ' s, C-3 ' s, Victorys and many other types, as fast as they slid down the ways. We are proud of AGWI ' s service in this great " task force " of merchant ships which has helped bring victory sooner. But more, we value the experience gathered in wartime, for it has prepared us to carry — by sea or by air — our share of tomorrow ' s new commerce along the routes pioneered by AGWI over a cen- tury ago.

These 83 ' patrol boats, among the fastest in Coast Guard Service, are daily making history in the sea lanes of the world. Powerful engines, controlled by reverse gear and throttle controls that will shift them from nll forward to full astern in a fraction of a second, give them the speed and maneuver- ability necessary for sub warfare. Think of it! Here is a foolproof finger-tip control that gives the skipper complete command of his vessel. He can turn her on a dime . . . Let go his depth charges and pull away to a firing position, ready for aaion when and if the sub surfaces. The performance of Panish Controls under aaual combat conditions is an amazing story of split- second maneuverability.

( I . r . . « The trial run that launched a nevv steering system THE PHOTOGRAPH ABOVE waB taken in 1932 during the trial runs of the Coast Guard Cutter thetis. The 165-foot thetis was one of 18 such vessels equipped with the then new Sperry Electro-Mechanical Steer- ing System. The 12-year record of the THETIS and her sister ships speaks for itself . . . In peacetime, they served on general ocean patrol, Arctic and Alaskan patrol, and many special missions. When war came, these valiant little ships helped to form our first thin line of defense against the Nazi wolf-pack menace lurk- ing along our shores, and gallantly held on until reinforcements were ready. As a result of the performance of these equipments on the Coast Guard Cut- ters, the Navy chose the Sperry Electro- Mechanical Steering Systems for installation on 200 of the first Patrol Vessels which were authorized shortly before Pearl Harbor. Thus, when the emergency arose, this steering device also was tried and proved— ready to go to war. Since 1941, more than 2,000 installations have been made. Normally, " finger-tip " electric steer- ing is provided. If power should fail, a clutch in the steering stand permits the wheelsman to shift control immedi- ately to manual steering. A rudder in- dicator shows rudder position in both hand and electrical steering. One or more non-follow-up steering controllers may be located at any place on the ship. Electro-Mechanical Steering Sys- tems are in use on many craft of the Navy, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, and Army, and on privately operated tugs, ferryboats, and other craft. The Sperry Electro-Mechanical Steering System is economical, rugged, and de- pendable. In the case of 32 installations where careful records were kept, mainte- nance costs for tliis equipment averaged only eight dollars per year. Sperry Gyroscope Company INC.

Hot, sweet or classical, your record collection was hard hit at Pearl Harbor. Records are made with shellac shipped from India — the same ma- terial that preserves furniture, stiffens hats. When war came, most of the shellac we could get safely past enemy submarines went for military needs. Because America depends on mer- chant ships for so many things we eat or wear or use. Congress in 1936 set up a program to give this country the necessary Ameriran-flag shipping to control our vital trade. In the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, Congress pointed out that a merchant marine " constructed in the U. S., manned ivith a trained and efficient citizen personnel . . . owned and oper- ated under the U. S. flag by citizens " is " necessary for the national defense and development of (our) foreign and domestic commerce. " Today America has the fleets, born and operated under the guidance of the Maritime Commission and the War Shipping Administration. They are making Victory possible! We of American Export Lines have been able to contribute our long ex- perience with Mediterranean and Indian Ocean routes to help the cam- paigns in those areas. W e have oper- ated, managed or acted as agents for literally thousands of merchant ship voyages— including invasion fleets and beach-head landings. WTien Peace comes, we will serve you directly . . . our cargoes and ports of call will depend on ichat you and other Americans uant to bur or sell abroad. jas American Export Lines nl E 25 BROADWAY.
