That short passage from the . cadet ' s mission indicates the aims and aspirations of us of the Coast Guard Academy. A feehng of service pride was not something deveh)|)ed overnight. It was cai ' efullv nurtured and grew (hiring our years as cadets. We came to understand the service witli its trials, its rewards, its disappointments. Tide Rips is not just another yearbook announcing the graduation of a group of men. each of whom will pursue his future independentlv: hut is a chron- ology of four years of effort directed towards a comnuui goal. During the years ahead, many will be the time that we will thumb through its pages bring- ing to mind the numerous personal incidents which have bound our class into an inexorable unity. We will chuckle at the pleasures and ponder o er the pains. This book has a story to tell. It presents the memorabilia of the class of 1948.

What will be his views? Adinirai Wilfrid N. Derby was quick to answer these ques- tions. We were soon impressed by the new Super- intendent. He proved to be an active, enthusiastic man who made his presence felt. Despite his two and one half inches of gold stripe, he revealed a genuine desire to ascertain the thoughts and opin- ions of cadets. He made frequent classroom visits, spoke to many cadets personally, and made his viewpoints on education and character develop- ment known as the first speaker in our Friday night lecture series. Finally, the personal contact between the Superintendent and the dorps was cemented when Admiral Derby walked into our (ir l Alari- time Economics class as instructor. An avid specta- tor at all athletic contests, he has consistently championed good sportsmanship as a major step in the character development so necessary in the of- ficer of today.

Many of us struggled into our fir t set of work whites, looked into the mirror and grinned. However, those smiles changed to groans during Billy Taylor ' s thrice- weekly torture period.

Yes, despite the hardships suf- fered, that year will typify the Academy. Vi e are now glad and proud tliat ve endured it. Regardless of the brief occasional weekend shocks during Swab Summer, none of us other than the bilgers were prepared for the full fury come September. The year opened with a bang and a bounce and kept us hopping till June. We were ash tray cleaners and canteen orderlies: we ' Suc et 0%cCenicfi Quit!

Of course once in a while we got liberty, hut with our liberty brace reminding us of the dark- ness from whence we came and to which we must too soon return. Thanksgiving, a welcome respite, passed quickly and then 30-15-4 days-to- go-Sir crept past. The Sunday before leave was the low spot in our Academy life.

We learned that day the dan-ier of overdoing the System. Winter melted in a (hirrv of exams, hoxinc inatehes. and informal dances. Soon the routine pre-hundredth day was upon us. A week before " Der Tag " we went on l;i minute reports by sec- tions, flew the corridors by day. and rotation storms by night. It was fun because our Dav was coming; and when it came, at the y note of reveille, the blood did flow. W asson. Schweinsberg, and Northcott were the men in greatest demand; with sadistic glee we made u[) for a year of suffering. Spring leave and drill came and went. We were coming of age, anticipating the stripe ahead. It had been a good year and appeared better in retrospect. Time hasn ' t changed that outlook, and we still stick our chests out and exclaim proudly, " Now when we were Swabs, Liberty party on di-ch, ■ fflTr.

" None of us will e cr forget that semester when we spent our time worrying about how anyone would possibly get 25 7 on a final, knowing as little as we did. Somehow, we got through that seemingly insurmountable obstacle. One semester of chemistry was all the test tube shuffling we had to endure. Still, the course revealed all the secrets of compounding soap more pure than Ivory. Confidential formulae for the production of high explosives were re- vealed to those who seemed tired of it all.

The aims of the course were indeed ambitious. As the first class to endure the course, we received both barrels. The course, during our Swab Year, consisted of a series of lectures delivered by Prof. Law- rence, Prof. Colby and Prof. Buron. There was much ado about the Grecian and Roman mas- ters and methods of Greek and Roman warfare. As armchair strategists we refought the battles at Thermopolae and Hannibal ' s Italian cam- paign. Later, we prayed for Charlemagne to come to Roland ' s rescue, toured the underground with Virgil and Dante, and finished the course with a whirlwind tour of American History. Prof. Colby.

Tlie first rare Itreatli of freefhiin — that is the way the cUjss leineiiihers our little trip to Sa- lem. After being the door mats of the Corps for one year, we rereived a taste of free air when we went on board the " Danmark " and ' " Atlantic " . We were to be away from the upper class for the first time, for we had left the Class of " 47 preparing for their exams. We were ready for a three weeks rest at Salem Air Station. Those on the Atlantic found themselves on a well-run sliip. I nder the command of Lieu- tenant Connnander Winstead, emphasis was placed on getting the work done rather than on regulations. Those sentenced to the Dan- mark found themselves enmeshed in a strug- gle w ith the elements in order to keep the " great white boat " white, the brass polished, and the engine unused. When we arrived at Salem, we found that we were to live on board ship, and go ashore every other day to receive instruction. The pertinent question was how to get ashore. Our running boats succeeded in staying out of or- der most of the time, but we managed. Once ashore, the training, which consisted of a series of restful training films and non-technical lec- tures, was relaxing. Then came the big thrill our first hop in a PB-Y. We were allowed to handle the controls and got the feel of a flying boat. Our imagina- tittns bridged the years to when we could pin on those silver wings.

The most popular spttt of all was the SPAR barracks at Marblehead where intra-ser ice morale was heightened no little. Just ask Patty Shuff or Red Starr about the Marblehead rugcutting and you will get either a blush, a wink, or a story. The Salem venture remained one of the most pleasant experiences in our four years at Uncle Sam ' s Academy. 0 ' i 9 Ready for thr first hop. TViZ e Cdd Between the COBB an.

Instead of eiicoiiiilerinf: new kinds of paint to scrape, we found ourselves resting coni- forlahly in non-rocking l)arrarks.

In the evenings our time was free to spend in the well-stocked canteen or playing softhall in the field. When the weekend came, liberty was ex- tended for all hands, with those living in the icinity receiving a weekend. It was amazing how many boys suddenly developed near rela- tives around Boston. How they managed to hide a Boston background behind a Southern drawl and Western twang was hard to under- stand. Lest we forget, there was Chief Warrant Bur- bine who demonstrated, one peaceful after noon, that a Reising. held loosely in a hori- zontal plane, could spray bullets in a wide arc around the wielder.

However, all was not kiyis and soogee water; many of us learned for the first time that the ordinary Mereator Projection charts used in ocean navigation were replaced by Polyconic charts on the Great Lakes, and that the Inland Water Navigation Rules were slightly tlifferent from the Great Lakes Rules.

There were condnclcd tours of {irain eleva- tors, ore freighters, shipyards and aircraft fac- tories which demonstrated to us the innnense production required to wage a total war. The closely-packed appearance of the shipj)ing through the St. Marys Ri er and the Straits ol Mackinac revealed that the huge iron ore ca- pacity of the Messabi Range was being utilized to its fidlest extent in supplying the industrial cities of Detroit, Cleveland, and Gary.

Ca- dets were put ashore by watches for hikes through the woods ; fishing parties were organ- ized, and a few of the BTO ' s even found girls who were summering in the lakeside cabins. For hardy characters who look well in blue, the .55 F. lake water provided an additional sport — swimming. Except for the fad that some of our hot shot navigators became lost in the woods, no casualties were experienced. Life ' s more cnjoynhlc monifiUs. Living compartments aboard the MACKI- NAW were the roomiest and most pleasant we had seen in our short time in the Coast Guard. Every man was provided with either a bunk or a cot instead of the hammocks to which we had become accustomed on board the DANMARK. Hammocks are very practical on a sailing ship which may heel to a constant 20 for days. Still hammocks must be stowed every morning. That is quite a task when you consider that many of us blunder around without fully awak- ing until after our second cup of Java. The messdeck of the MACKINAW was large and airy, and the chow hounds never failed to get " seconds. " At night the messdeck was converted into a theater which showed the latest movies. As the cruise drew to a close, it became ap- parent that our educations had indeed been broadened considerably, but many of us won- dered if sleep were something that we read about in books. Choic line — First Class first. Overlooking Charlotte Amalic on the Isle of St. Thomas, in the J irgin Islands. The last half of our Third Class Suinnier was passed aboard the D.E. MENGES and the USCGC COBB classification doubtful. We ca- dets were divided into three groups, two on the COBB and the remaining one on the MEINGES. Our first port of call was St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, a locale which offered various diversions for liberty hours such as swimming at the Marine Beach, souvenir hunt- ing in the many silver shops, and tours of the island. A visit to the terrace of Bluebeard ' s Castle was rewarded by an excellent view of the city, Charlotte Amalie, several hundred feet be- low. It was also a cool and refreshing place to relax and enjoy a delicious dinner, among other things. In town were other places, such as the 34 IP (WHI i WW " A ' o. it isn ' t n ' ' rry boat — jiixt ihv I SC(,C COHB.

In between ports we engaged in llie iiievi table ship ' s work interspersed with classes in navigation, and a new oddity, gun drill. The MEN(iES was by far the more heavily armed of the two ships, carrying three-inch guns and 40 and 20 mm.; while the COBB only had a 5 ineher and 20 mm. The COBB possessed a Avtioii sKirbixirdl loading machine whose tolerances were in- creased considerably by our sweating gun crews. In Preston, (]uba, we were given a tour of a large sugar plantation. While we were told that the city ' s only export was cane sugar, it was ru- moured that chanel No. 5 ran a close second. After a five day stop in Bermuda we proceeded to New London and two weeks ' leave before the start of the new academic term. Preston. Cuba, land of sugar cane anil llic L niled Fruit Company. ip ' v.

The first few days were just a blur, as we reveled in all the pleasures which had been denied us the previous year. We spent all available moments in our rec room tryiiij; to j;et that eijilil ball safely tucked away in the side pocket. e rubbed shoulders against the bulkheads as we walked — I did say walked — down the corridor. Best of all we saw some other poor unfortunates answeriiifr to that sa- distic wail. " SWAB HO! " Yes, it was a big day when we saw the new Swab class. We had progressed the initial steep step. From then on. the climb was to be- come increasingly easy. At that time of the year many of the class, with the memory of the previous year still vivid, were determined that we were to be a class of " good Joes. " It was interesting to see how ideas changed when we discovered that for every additional privilege, there was that certain responsibility. Our big job was to liandh ' indoctrination under the overall dictates of the first class. They provided the ideas. We were the muscle men. We now saw to it that other men were kee|)ing their eyes in the lioat at mess. We were now the ones who kept up that incessant chant of " butt left, mister, " and " dress it up, " at noon drill periods.

We did lia e plenty o( word to hand out in those days, for th( future wheels were starting to dri e in iheir first spokes. Our third class year was a great year for tattoo goings on. These were rabbit hunts, collision drills, sock races, rowing to Norwich, and all the other ideas which playful minds might conceive. Perhaps aspects of it were silly, but it did accom- plish much toward improving class spirit and, most important of all, provided a few laughs to relieve the tension of a crowded day. The climax of the barracks year was " Hundredth Day. " During the week before " Hundredth Day, " we really gave the underclass good cause for vengeance. They were ready for us. To this day, the cry " Air Raid " brings back memories. The mess hall was a bedlam with more food in the air than on the plates. Rick Taylor and LeRoy Reinburg ' s hole was never quite the same after 50 mattresses had been heaped in it. Hundredth Day proved anew that we could take it as well as dish it out. Dirty bom.

Looking hack upon our acadeuiic career, the series ol coiir ol- fered hy Prof. Lavvereuce staud out as auionj: the uiosl enjoyahle. Prof. Lawcrcuce hati hc ii the iustructor of tlie class of " 18 iu at least one course each year. Without liic henefits of tiic radio and time for the reading; of p« ' riodicals. it was ery easy to lose track of the nionieutou;- happenings which were going on outside those gates. Prof. Lawerence did much to make up for these handicaps. Through his instruction, we learned to evaluate the events of the time in light of history and prevailing precepts of our economic system. The good professor has heen termed the class ' s unofficial class adviser. Our first semester with " Dirty Al " (as he is called in less formal circles) laid the foundation for an investigation of economics by a study of past great thinkers. Next, we progressed to a thorough survey of our way of living. The cli- max came in our government course, in which The Prof, fxphiininsi to the hoys i(7iy it isii ' l necessary to balatice the budget. Professor Albert A. L(iH-erenre. head of the General Sindies Di-partnient. we learned exactly what made the Democrat hate the Republicans, and " who got what, where, when and how. " High lights of the course were the frequent battles of wits between Shuff and the instructor, and the somewhat voluminous term papers in which more blood flowed than did on the beaches of Normandy. We will always remember Prof. Lawerence as a true friend of the cadets and a regular " uv. Lt. Comdr. Corliss P.

" To the average mariner, and layman at large, this is navigation. We had our own pet names for it. Perhaps future classes will not have a true ap- preciation of the subject, for with new plotting tables they will be deprived of the pleasure of balancing slide rules, parallel rulers, charts. Light Lists, and Nautical Almanacs on the gran- diose " 1 X 1 " board wliich ])assed as a desk in McAllister Hall. For three long years, Lt. Comdr. Lambert amazed us with his uncanny knowledge of the subject and his ability to drive his students from llif moment that " ery well, seats! " was given until five minutes after the bell. Accuracy was the navigational (iod and we worshipped him devoutly. Combined with accuracy, there was always speed, and more speed. The advent of the Saturday morning work period was the cli- max of the struggle against lime. One thing must lie said — we learned a whale of a lot of naviga- tion. The thoroughness of our course will be a|i| rc(ialt ' d in later days. 40 TfteJi, " I Wiiiil it formally iiiulcrstood lliat you can bilfje just as easily in tnechanics as you aii in any other siihjeet.

That and a (jui k flurry of three problems long, five minute quizzes made us certain that here was the origi- nal Si mon Legree. That was the initial impres- sion, but oh how wrong we were. The enlight- ment was not a sudden one, but came gradually. It began to dawn upon a few of us that all Mr. Smith wanted was for us to do our home- work. We began to know what was in back of that rigid brace, which had made us green with envy. We began to find that our papers were being marked fairly, and besides discovering a thoroughly competent and industrious instruc- tor, we had found a true friend of the cadets. A graduate of a far Western college and a cadet at West Point for three years, where he was a football star, Mr. Smith understood cadets and their problems. (A Coast Guard Lieutenant before the war, he returned to West Point, as an instructor, and rose to the rank of major. He returned to the Coast Guard Academy in " 45 as a Lieutenant Commander. ) It was not unusual to hear the boys saying, " Why if Snuffy were Tactics Officer . . . " or " Fm certain that Snuffy wouldn ' t consider that right. " ' In Prof. Smith, we found what to us typified the very best in the military system. Other memories are brought to mind when we recall our mech classes. We recall the force- ful demonstrations in class that you can ' t lick centrifugal force, even though big Nick Schmidt made a mighty effort. Well, we worked hard in mechanics, but we met a swell guy.

Sharp was demonstrating the so- lution of another one of his never ceasing Miathematical riddles for the edification of the class at large. A glance around the room would reveal five or six blackboards full of numbers, and wierd symbols understood solely by one " Hank " Sharp. Unquestionably Commander Sharp had asked Santa Claus each Christmas for a special classroom with blackboards on the ceiling. Perhaps someday his wish will come true. Possessing a sharp, ever twinkling sense of humor, he succeeded in making his classes enjoyable, even if his subject matter didn ' t of- ten strike a responsive chord. At least we learned how much we didn ' t know. Lt. E. P. Rivard was a man of many facets. You never knew where he would show up. One term it was teaching mathematics, next it was in the materials laboratory, and finally he ap- peared in the juice department. If he ever showed up in the Lit-History Department, he would have circuited the academic front. 42 Jhr SECOND CLASS m% m - - ei HcicCa l ace For maii ol ii llic iicriiiiKia l acc a our first real ' |tfri( ' iicc willi llic flciiifiiU at sea.

Both crews were primed for a tough race. The trip down was phigued with puffy head winds and a hot sun. The ATLANTIC showed up during the race after being hurried into shape by 22 second cUissmen and the h)cal Coast Guard auxiliary. The worst memory on the Atlantic ' s trip southward was the shortage of food and the complete lack of water. A couple of days out. the fresh water tanks became con- taminated with salty water. Some of the l)oys started shaving with coca-cola. On the good ship T. Smiley, Gus. and Carl alternated as galley slaves. Grapefruit competed with a crate of oranges as the chief staple.

Jack Wood, an old ocean racer, turned his CURLEW boys loose from their 6 day pumping chores, while the ATLANTIC second classmen took life easy at N.O.B. stocking up on chow. The trip back was the exact antithesis of the race. The ATLANTIC walked into the tail end of a hurricane and lost almost all her new sails. Ding Wetmore got knocked down on deck that night as the storm struck with a fury. The schooners also had a rough time. The cruise taught everyone to have a healthy respect for the wind and made some seasoned sailors out of the 48 " ers taking that memorable ride.

This godsend lo the weak. lame, and lazy went by the name of Snnmier Sessions. Al this lime we took courses in navigation, shop work, sur- veyiufi, praetieal seamanship, and a iation. Since little homework was required, we cavort- ed on the tennis court, played golf, and slept. Our seamanship course resolved itself into a basic indoctrination in swinging the chipping hammer, as we readied the " Atlantic " and the schooners for their hectic trip to Bermuda. While the aviation aspect was a quick course in maneuvering the boatswain chair fully 150 feet above deck, it acted as excellent preparation for our first class cruise. In surveying courses we checked to see if there were still approximately 280,000 square feet of good earth to drill on. Our hydrographic map making was calculated to scare the life out of the fishes which would have no truck with such queer goings on. He Here lucky we never had lo use iihal ire mnde.

Between siestas, training films, and liberty, the boys managed to get in a few pre-season football licks. Section Baker went to good old Floyd Ben- nett field, under the stern, but paternal care of Lt. Paul Foye. For the uninitiated, Floyd Ben- net! Field is snugly located in the home of " Dem Bums " — Brooklyn. Of course, being stationed at Floyd Bennett resulted in untold hardships for Harry Gregg. Nick Schmidt, and Bob Shuff. They often had to spend as nuich as 5o in a bus in order to get home. Then of course there were those like Bernie Shapiro and Max Charleston, who made mighty pilgrimages to God ' s coun- try — The Bronx. All told, no one made out too poorly at Floyd Bennett. The routine at Floyd Bennett was influenced considerably by the personnel available and the whims of our skipper, Mr. Foye. At Floytl Ben- nett, we found a station organized to do the job at hand, where regulations and red tape were held to a minimum. Lt. William A. Jenkins ' 42 r - ' l! Hard at icork at Floyd Bennett.

When we reached New London, and tied up at Trumbell, the class of " 48 was presented with its first big task. Without the benefit of much supervision, we were to take down the main and fore royal and topgallant yards, and then lower the masts, in order for the " Eagle " to fit under the bridge.

But this was the tradition of the dance; there were other things which we will remember as well. We had heard of the decorations for pre- vious dances; and ha ing the best class yet, we didnt intend to be outdone. The big ring, through which we walked to receive the class ring from our drags, was to approach an en- largement of the class ring with both the Acad- emy and the class seals in relief. It was to be set in a pool fed by a brook tumbling down through a mountain of greenery. The dance committee, assisted by the rest ol the lirst class worked furiously to bring the idea to reality. Vk hen the beginning of the dance was delayed after tiic dinner, we began suspecting things. Our worst fears were realized when it was found that liic water intended for the pond had made a substantial start in fdliiig the rest of the gym. Hurried last minute remedies were tried — more tar. more plaster of paris — but to no avail. Because of the symbolism involved and be- cause of the watery but not unpleasant mess which ensued, we will long remember our Ring Dance. ■ ' " W - 1 I Lt.

Pastes in an investigation of motors and generators. Our juice laboratory periods paralleled our class- room work. Under the guidance of Lt. Wood- ruff, we conducted many practical experiments, such as the paralleling of generators. On our first class cruise, we used this practical knowl- edge to good avail. Our second semester saw Lt. Estes bow out of the course, which then dealt with the less substantial vacume tubes and their uses. While there was considerable knowledge of the subject present in the class, most of it was claimed by a few privileged ones, such as " Deacon " Mcdune, " Snatchblock " Bosnak. and the " Crow. " ' Li.

Our primary watch was that of Officer of the Deck. It was up to us to correlate all the facts which we had learned. We discovered that to read ahout navigation was one thing, but to carry out the duties of navigator was something else. Beside the usual service duties of the O. D., the Eagle required a good knowledge of sailing and the development of a seaman ' s eye. The work horse of the watch was the coxswain. He kept the lifeboats ready for sea, mustered the watch, and closely super- vised the manual work about the ship. A good portion of the time was spent down in the en- gine room learning about the troubles of the engineering officer. We rarely suffercfl from lack of things to do. Lt.-Co:n(h .

The sum total of the initial efforts at fueling at sea was the loss of quite a few reputations and the attaining of some choice rope burns, when lines decided to take charge. After conceding the desirability of be- laying lines, our subsequent attempts were far more successful.

Here Saturdays and Sundays meant time for letter- writing, card playing, and sun-bathing. The Eagle, however, was another matter. In spite of the hard work, the ingenious found ways of relaxing.

Usually things improved when we managed to get the cobwebs out of our sleep- laden orbs. The first stage of our training was one of preparation. We learned how dry, dry firing could actually be. Under the not too ben- evolent guidance of the local gyrenes, we were pushed into our positions, had our slings tight- ened until our arms ached, and were finally de- clared ready for the big test that lay ahead. The actual firing was divided between the Garand and the Colt. After the session at Wakefield, we felt fully confident that many of us would soon sport expert bars. A few encounters with " Mag- gies drawers " and the first jolt from an im- properly held Garand convinced us that work was cut out for us on this tough Marine course. Finally, the dust and dirt stopped flying in the vicinity of our targets, the red banners disap- peared, and we began to get results. For every hour on the line, there was an hour in the pits.

So here, aided by surf men from nearby sta- tions, we were introduced to the modes of am- phibious transportation. We learned to rifjlit overturned boats and how to do it quickly and easily. There was a knack to rowing a boat in open water, but an even greater skill was re- quired in getting a boat out from shore and get- ting it back again through the surf. After surf boat work we made landings with the LCV ' s, and that most truly amphibious craft of them all — the " duck. " The surf was used for train- ing, but the time when we weren ' t actually en- gaged in any of the operations we paddled around for our own amusement, the only dis- traction being the number of flies which seem to congregate around South Jersey. It wasn ' t the idea to make qualified surf men out of us. Our objective was to gain a basic knowledge of what was required in that sort of work. " Operation Wet Pants?

We could smoke in the morning; but, best of all, there was first class liberty. Those Wednesday and Sunday night movies helped to case the pressure, and the monthly weekends were longed-for events.

During our four years at the Academy, Cath- olic priests of the Navy Chaplain Corps offered mass in McAllister Hall each Sunday. While at first we were a little nonplussed to find an altar set on a stage and acolytes in cadet uniforms (»f blue assisting the priest in offering mass, we quickly came to realize that the important as- pect of religion was not in the surroundings but in the contents of the service. } b.u.ii.

A brilliant line backer, the Beef was usu- ally flanked by Chuck Hathaway and either Joe Dorsky or Al Prunski. Prunski, although ham- pered by injuries, proved to be a vicious line- man. Hathaway, a fine defensive player, settled down at guard after a year at end. Steady Joe Dorsky also found a niche as guard after a stretch as an end. For rough and tough tackles, we had goliath Red Starr and scrappy Pop Och- man. 1948 ' s big contribution to the end depart- ment was Duane Ross who, after having to learn ,(■ ui ' ill (.(xicli.

Reared on Billy Taylor ' s commando course. uitli a sprinkling of calisthenics and boxing, we were always in terrific condition. The highlijjht of the season was the struggle with Dartmouth ; for the tiny tykes from the academy stole the play from tlie Indians in a rough and hard fought contest. 1946 saw us hard hit by graduations and res- ignations. The coaching reins were taken over by Mickey Conley, one of the best soccer play- ers in these parts. Bernie Shapiro, " 48 captain, was a mighty big part of our attack, with a dan- gerous foot. Don Chapman, starting at wing, made the switch to halfback where he really found himself. Dick Hope took over the nets Manager M(i.

Soccer was eliminated in a drive toward econ- omy in 1947: but in future years, we will watch anxiously for the return of a swell sport. !■ iahl for that ludl. Cliappie.

Among the ex-class members who made their mark in the sport were dependable Lee Milner, stellar diver Dick Kaffenberger, distance man Carl Michel, and breast stroker Steve King.

There was fleet Harry Davenport, who divided his tal- ents between the green pastures of left field and the busy second base spot. Bobby Duin excel- lently filled the short stop gap, and before side- tracked by a sore arm, saved many a game as a relief nioundsman, while Dinger Wetmore ' s accurate pegs from behind the plate kept enemy base runners glued to the bags.

Desiring an early start, the staff was organized and put to work early in second class year. The chief burden of producing the hook was placed on the shoulders of Max Charleston. In over all charge of the business angle was iJick Hope who spent a good portion of his time in disentangling the mess which was our legacy from the previous class. The all important task of getting advertising was entrusted to Rock Taylor — and his chief local peddler. Randy Weadon — who could be found most any after- noon or evening pounding out letters to pro- spective advertisers; if there " aint no dough " , there just " ain " t no book. " Dick Tomozer had the thankless chore of dragging the class write- ups out of " S2 reliu ' tant dragons. " hat is more important to a yearbook than pictures?

All Clancy asked was one day ' s head start when the products (d his lahors came to ievv. Fiiudly, we had Bill Riueharl who was burdened by the responsibil- ity of selling the finished product and its dis- tribution. A wortl of thanks should also be given to the members of the class of 1948 who heavetl around and turned their requested articles in to Max on time; for production of TIDE RIPS was more than a one man job. The services of most everyone in the class were called upon to either write articles or solicit advertising. The boys came through.

Bob Durfcy. took o cr. doing his usual workmanlike job. Dick Tomozer edited the magazine during first class year, leaving it in a healthy condition lor his successors, both financially and editorially, with many new features added. As a genuine outlet for cadet opinion, the po- sition of Surf " n Storm at the academy is uni({ue and, from the point of view of both officers and cadets, indispensable. ll aLi as ututift i m Tli« ' ' arl jtiiblication ol liimiiiiif!; Lifjlit is a lHiiii( r( ii |)r(i|t(isili(in.

Eventually Herb bit. and hence received the consolation prize title of editor-in-chief. As was evidenced by the appearance of Run- ning Light on time, the work did get done. Some of the cleanup job and last minute changes Chuck Tannel of the second class handled when the editors left for sea duty on the summer cruise. A lot of credit went to Chuck Hathaway, who had completely revised the Running Light in the previous year, for this considerably less- ened the task to be done on the " 47- ' 48 edition.

In Septeniher 1946. Professor Ouimhy of Con- necticut College became the official director of tile Choir and Glee Club. With the assistance of Carl Mathews, the sponsorship of Chaplain Harp, and the good though skeptical wishes of everyone, the choir really branched out. Radio ap|)earanees, musical evenings, joint perform- ances with the Conn. (College Choir, and various social functions followed. The youthful offspring of the choir, the mam- moth " small group " , entertained the corps and their guests at fornials with inimitable sea shan- ties. Led by Dick Tomozer, they were a delight- ful and welcomed addition ; though they also became the butt of a never ending series of gags. Though occasionally maligned by the tone deaf among us, the choir gives the battalion a greater feeling of participation in both religious and social fields.

Every Sunday morning, several underclass- men departed for ehureli without niakiufi; the usual liberty party. No, they were not being ratey ; but were members of the Protestant Chap- el Committee on their way to Harkness Chapel. Of the original group of 48 ' ers on the commit- tee, only deacons extraordinary, Boedecker and Scharfenstein, remained. Their duties consisted of decorating the chapel for Sunday services, and setting up the altar. After the services were moved to Harkness Chapel, the flags were pro- pelled in each Sunday at the beginning of ser- vices, and out at their conclusion, by two shin- ing fonrlh class committee members. The two members from our class on the (iatholic Chapel Committee were Jim Brook and Phil Gaucher, who had quite a task making Mc- Alister Hall into a fitting place for services. Par- ticipating actively in the service, the committee was a big aid to the Catholic Chaplain. jIAJ Left to Right: Fleishi ' ll. Tannel. Brook, Gaucher, llocli. Another Dance C.dnunillee mural.

To make these af- fairs less of a chore, a small " iroiip of warm- hearted individuals with no feelings hut for their fellow men banded together in an unique organization reverently referred to as the Dance Committee. It has no counterpart elsewhere, niiicli to the relief of a great many people. Not merely a group of individuals who, in a flurry of pre-dance activity, succeeded in getting al- most as much paint on a few decorations as on themselves, it was a social institution limited in membership to the men witli the most imagina- tion, the most creative ability, the most selfless drive, or in short, those men with the slipping cog wheels. But lluir labors, in the face of most every form of difficulty resulted in new heights in dance decorations. Left to Right, Kneeling: decker, ilallherg. Penn.

Oild ar II was oNer. and tlie mem- bers of tli ' class were caujihl in the conxcr i:!:! from war to peace, and so were witnesses to niaM changes in both the Academy and tiie Ser- vice in general. Theirs was the last class to re- ceive preliminary training on the square-rigger, " Danniark " : their ' s was the last class to under- go the traditional " swab year. ' " But to 48 goes the honor of being the last class to reap the du- bious rewards of " Hundredth Day " at ' 49 ' s hands. Its past second class year has resulted in ' 49 becoming more integrated and united as a class. In the face of the approach of their ultimate goal, and tlu- rights and responsibilities which are about to be devolved upon them, the class members stand ready to assume their responsi- bilities with spirit and confidence. The class motto, " Consider The End, " conveys the pur- pose of four years at the Academy. . . to i»repare a man physically, mentally, and morally for a life of service to the Coast Guard and the nation.

" Smiley, " as he is known to the boys, derives much enjoyment from athletics, as his ])arti( ' ii)ation in football and wrestling will show. These were his favorite sports ami he was a member of good staniling on both teams, despite a tlamaged shoulder during the 1946-47 season. So far, we ' ve been able to discover only two non-athletic extra-curricular subjects which seem to really interest Irv. They are (1) Mac and (2) bridge. " Mac " is Smileys little queen from Conn College who seems to be the guiding star for all those unrestricted months Irv has amassed during his life as a cadet. As for bridge, " Honey-babe " (another, less widespread nickname) tells us he ' s quite an expert in the field, and from all rejiorts, he ' s right. Outside the gym. Irv is a mild, easy-going, well-liked fellow who gets along easily with everyone. His serious side is |)rotecled by a good sense of humor and common sense, both of whiili. linki ' d with liis athletic ability, make him " one of the boys.

Scotty. from that part of Long Island without the G, made C.G.A. on his second attempt, but aside from that minor obstacle has been going strong ever since. Swimming was his first, last, and main diversion as he kept high in the scoring column each year, but football and track somehow slipped in for second honors. P.E. was something for the birds. Social life? Thats been confined pretty much to Bayside, with the big formal weekends and an occa- sional swimming team trip to New York breaking the long stretches between leaves. Thinking of Scotty at C.G.A. we can ' t forget: that athletic seasons mark a long, hard break from one cigarette to the next; that it was definitely proven Horsey does not have the biggest chin in the class; that Union ( ' ollege is the best prep for C.G.A. in the country; that Cadets, when not talking, should keep their mouths shut ; that a long, six-year wait for the true girl is some- thing to be mighty [jroud of: and that day or night in any port or on any ship, for companionship, sincerity, and a helping hand, we ' ll have to look far to find a shipmate to beat Scotty.

When the Boz isnt resting at his private flake-haven-by-the-sunkeii-barge behind a pair of Calobars he is asleep behind a desk, but he manages to stay awake long enough to get way up at the head of his class. To generate his slow, sleepy smile just mention E. E. or double E. Proof of his ability with juice can be had by witnessing his unpatented hot dog electrocutor in action. His interests in the South American music heard from the Radio Club room he helped organize are said to originate in a certain Argentine good neighbor. When Boz isn ' t turning the dials, he is with the boys planning a Saturday night at one of the local spaghetti houses. Its a pity the girls get the nod so seldom. If you really want a job. try to get the Boz irritated. He spends so much time coaching the would be squirrels, that lie has none to waste on the uiulerclass. One of his biggest achievements was the handing out of 32 demerits in two months. Boz makes himself wanted with a quiet attitude that will be appre- ciated on the bridge and in the wardroom. ,0 147 Assistant Football Maiiagrr 4. 3, 2 . . . Surf ' n Storm 3 . . . Platoon Commander.

One of the more serious and mature members of the class, the " thin man " arrived in the uniform of Uncle Sam ' s Army. His Chicago background gave him the basis for his method of U])holding the system via his torpedoes and lieulenants. Jim believes in being quiet — somewhat like a case of TINT in an annuo dump — when he ex- plodes, watch out. There is a woman somewhere in the world who fits into Jim ' s exact definition of " the she " . He struggles between the desire to find her and an inherent feeling for bachelorhood. Tall, blond, and tactful, he can look at and through a person without batting an eyelash while verbally cutting the unfortunate down to pocket size.

Known best for his contagious humor, he keeps his friends roaring by a combination of subtle (usually) digs at them and a too-great-to- be-real show of self-satisfaction. The Butt spent his s[)are time playing off and on the Soccer Squad and takes it in the head with the boxing team in se;-- soii. Along with these goes a literary sweep through marlinspike seamanship, semantics, philosophy, and psychology. In between he squeezes powered air- plane models and Saturday pilgrimages to a local steak house. A bit of a philosopher himself he is known to have dashed off in class: " " One of the three general trends of human characteristics is the tendency to emulate the turnip. A human in this category is born, eats, sleeps, matures, mates, grows old, and dies. He adds nothing to life, he takes nothing from life. In short — he who lives a vegetable existence is indeed a fruit. " From " ' Thoughts on Passing Out, " by Santa Butler. See what we mean? m% 149 - -.- HMiilH Class President, 2 . . .

As class president, he handled concert plans, visits to the hill, the class dinner, and in general had his finger in every pie. At interclass sports time. Jack was omnipresent. You could find him at the bottom of the football heap, against the ropes in the ring, on some- one ' s back on the mats, and pulling frantically in the boat races.

WAYNE E, CAlDWEll SPRINGFIELD, OHIO History shows that Ohio has remained emotionally stable through fire, flood, and prohibition, losing control of her emotions only when she lost her favorite son to the academy. But by the conservation of mass, Ohio ' s loss was our gain. Coast Guard ' s line pivoted on " The Beef " for four years, except during the brief period in which he worked as an end. His efficiency earned him the title of " The Plug " . Big Wayne not only excelled at football, but proved himself in leather pushing as well. Things got pretty rough one night against Virginia and in the last round he didn ' t move once when he should ha e. The sugges- tion has been made to place a plaque in the floor of Billiard Hall reading, " Caldwell Slept Here " . There is no doubt that Wayne " shone " among his classmates. He was al- ways a leading contender for president of the " Baldest Man in the Class " club. But that glistening surface shielded a ready wit ibal could leiul itself to mak- ing jokes about its own shiny covering. Our memories may fade when were old salts, but none of us will ever forget " The Beef " and his deeds at the Academy. ee 151 -rW? ia Soccer 4, 3. 2 . . . Asst. Baskrilxill M iiui- ger 4. 3 . . .

Although Chapper may not fiet the hest marks of any cadet, he comes pretty close to being the happiest. At least that ' s the impression we get, for seldom it is that Chapper can be found without a smile, come what may. The spring time means one thing to Chappie — time for another romance. Usually when autiunn comes, he is free, roving once again. When he isn ' t trying to imitate Frankie, he brightens our few leisure hours with his efforts on the guitar. . . . Being a lover of liberty from the beginning, he always has had something planned so as not to waste a minute of the allotted time. A local Biukeley supporter, he can be found on week-ends tearing around ISew Lon- don in his BLACK ACE. However, liberty isn ' t his only interest, as his accom- plishments on the soccer team and in the cadet band prove. His jitter-bugging is " right on " as many of us remember from a " rocking " night at the punch bowl in North (Carolina — or shouldn ' t such things be brought up! . . . His temperament and friendly nature make us confident that he will be well received wherever he goes. .:r. Assist (III I Snrcer Manager 4, 3, Manager 12 . . .

We think it is strange indeed that he does not take pride in being the only man with freckles on the top of his head. Another strange quality belonging to Max is his abil- ity to make gals go gaga when he makts with his watery blue eyes. His wil and patter keep the fair sex in a " let-us-go-gathering-nuts-in-May " mood which precludes entangling alliances. Still and all he has induced various sorts of women to travel thousands of miles just to spend a week-end in New London. His use of the Naval Air Transport Service and Pan American to get to the ' " Pearl of the Antilles ' " is comparable to the way a New Yorker changes from the IRT to the BMT. For those who want a good time and a liberal education. Max is the one to make a liberty party with.

A liberty boat packed with upperclassmen is held up in Detroit Bay by a third classman much more interested in what he was leaving behind than the consequences which lay ahead. A rifle cracks sharply in the darkness of the Chase Hall range. A voice barks and the drilling platoon takes on a new ap- pearance. The voice, the rifle, the consequences belong to Lou. Add to this a grin which appears when everybody else around has forgotten how to smile, and a sense of humor which, when it gets aroused, will kill most audiences and bring others from under tables. You now have a picture of this natural candi- date for Dog Company, who. due to circumstances beyond his control, disap- peared into A Company recently and hasnt been heard from since his colorful tour as company commander. Lou has managed to pick up a characteristic which should carry him far: a sense of justice which makes himself subject to his own stern but fair interpretation of the regs. " Sincerity " describes Lou, his motives, and his actions. A ou 155 ; - — Class Officer 2. 1 . . . ( ' irciiliilimi Manii- ger Surf ' n Storm 3. 2 . . . Soccer I, 3. 2 . . . Asst.

John could be found engrossed in a treatise on celestial mechanics, or else a time-worn copy of a sailor ' s handbook culled from the lower stacks of the li- brary. Though not an anti-socialite, his deposits of |)art of his monthly allowance and all but the train fare from annual leave grants have alwavs been a source of amazement to us. His wedtling day will find many curious onlookers, for we will all be anxious to meet the one who can draw the " Crow " from the ranks of the red mik -. or an evening in the observatory — spent in its intended use. alks over the bridge or to INiantic have more appeal to John than the conq)any of charming pulchritude. i Bmg 1 If restliiifi 1. .

He not oidy topped the class in academics but was a standout soccer and baseball player to say noth- ing of his wrestling prowess. He intermittently gave the local cuties a hard time, until Dan Cupid shot a long arrow from Long Island and stopped his carefree, roving days, temporarily anyway. Between physics lessons, shoe-box cyclotrons, athletics, and his daily letter to you-know-who, Harry was kept moving most of the time, but he still managed to join the rec room boys for a quickie at the pool table, or the ping pong table. His unlimited source of energy was a mystery to us all. as was his knowledge of any sid)ject we could name. Good marks seemed to come easily to Gus, much to our envy. His Bermutla life saving act caused quite a commotion as did his long remembered visits to the " Spot " and the " G. A.

He will i)c remembered for the speed with wliich his big birthday cake was consumed oim e ening study hour, while tiic duly ofiicer was lured elsewhere by a Tide Hips {)hol()graplier. He will also be remembered as the only man to go into a final exam with an 85% advance and still get a re-exam.

In fact he probably will answer to " Fag " to his dying day. There may be some jns- tification in saying that his body was here for four years, but his mind and heart were always elsewhere. Although a good student, lie thrived for good times rather than studies. He lived for leave as the " boys " cut down his liberty lime to praetically nothing. Undeterred, he used restricted time in sharpening nj) his pool and ping-pong, and felt rewarded when the pay-off balls kept dropping to the dismay of the suckers. A sure-thing gambler, he was always out to make a nickel the easy way. Always flush, his system seemed to pay off. Free with his change as far as he himself was concerned, his dates soon likened him to a tur- nip. A self styled hep character he persists in looking for a female counterpart to jump with to Louis Prima jive until he is ready to hit that old rocking chair.

According to Nitch, Bobby is known as " Luntznian, " but to us its " lunch meat, " " lunch box, " or just plain " little one. " A talented athlete, please refer to tlie sport ' s section, he was always the friend of the spectator by virtue of his size and spirit if not his skill. A basketball game was never complete without a picture of Bobby growling up at a referee. Usually the referee wins out. but Bobby manages to express his point. Out in Minnesota Bobby acquired an appetite for sharp cheeses — or perhaps it was cultivated in Wisconsin. Anyhow, he still loves the cheese, but is now con- tent with the dessert. " Hello there! What shall we talk about tonight . . . pretty girls? " This phrase was the symbol for the beginning of study hour. " Luntzman " was always a spir- ited (or even hot-tempered) member of the party. With Big Six and the Dinger he whittled away many afternoons, on campuses and in town. . . .

Recently becoming a resident of the old South, he still retained a warm spot in his heart for Oak Park and the friends he left be- hind. The Durf was one of the more conscientious mendiers of the class but ihese efforts were not all directed along an academic line. If you wanted some- thing done and done well, call on Bob. He did a wonderful job as editor of " Surf n Storm " and was an efficient and conscientious boxing manager. Durf wa.s a real friend to anyone — he would listen to your troubles and do his best to help you. His genuine goodness has won him many friends both at the Acad- emy and wherever he has been. Women occupied many ol Durf s weekends al- though we occasionally found him going out with llic boys. He has resisted en- tangling alliances effectively. ery seldom was one able to find him within the reservation when the libertv gate opened. Always a good man to have along on a cruise we know that Durf will make a successful officer and a good shipmate. pir !V ' »i " .I !

We can say that his " liberty " sprints have been beneficial to the class because they kept him in fair enough condition to be a valuable asset on the intramural teams. Norm does not go out with the boys very often because he is continually being dragged around by his ball and chain — or is it the other wav around? Whoever is wearing " them " hasn ' t hurt our fair haired boy from Allentown any because he is one of the easiest persons to get along with. His studv habits, while not loo steady, do get results. During the month he is a member of the bat-the-breeze-with-the-boys school, and the Saturday Eve- ning Post-Colliers-and-Life Club; but when exam time rolls around, old Norm ' s nose is well buried in a pile of books. Ouite the baseball enthusiast. Norm played on the Academy team, and for some mysterious reason he is a Red Sox fan. Perhaps it is his sympathy for the underdog.

Fitz started breaking records when he was a swab and did it so often it got to be a habit. An initiring machine on the four plus miles cross country course and a mile speed merchant on the track. Fitz showed remarkable versatility as a runner. No slouch along the academic line, he knocked down consistent A " s in the engineering subjects just to show the in- structors that the Irish aren ' t as thick as some people think. His quick wil slowed many a would-be heckler just as his unerring cue put the finishing touches on endless games of eight ball.

Long blond liair and the ever-present pipe give Herb a quiet, studious appearance, but this is only a disguise for the energetic and carefree individual that he really is. A loyal Wisconsin native, he has acquired the nickname " Schlitzer " in due respect to the fame of his home town, Milwaukee. Herb and Howie Pagel have been striving diligently to promote interest in the good German game of Schaffskopf, but so far their efforts seem to be more a tribute to their perseverance than to their salesmanship. One of " 48 ' s many football prospects in Swab year. Herb acquired a chronic shoulder dislocation which halted his gridiron career. This didn ' t prevent liini from being a big gun on A (Jompanvs wild and wooly basketball team. Schlit- zer managed to throw the shoulder out a few times in his sleep, an act which usually called for one or two would-be physicians in the Corps to practice their artistry. This proved especially interesting once when his roommate was away on a football trip; the calls for help carried far and wide.

However, in spite of his Atlanta drawl, he is not a hit reluctant to take liberty in Yankee land, being the first out and the last in. His most avid interest is in the psychological study of women.

Carl has read everything from Aristotle to Nietz- sche in a vain attempt to unravel the mystery of the ages, a woman ' s mind. Next to women, the colonel ' s favorite hobby is radio, which he attacks from a practical viewpoint. He will long be remembered for getting his finger caught ill a live condenser during his third class year, and throwing tubes and coils all over the room trying to extricate it while first classmen roared with glee. As befits a gentleman. Carl is courteous, generous, a good bridge player, and an entertaining conversationalist. His ability to make friends is sufficient to overcome his one glaring defect.

Bob soon re- ceived the title of " Deacon. " Bob was a terrific roommate, especially the night before a electrical engineering ram when his tutoring pulled many weak sisters through. What could be a better example of his good nature? Another item in bis favor, was that even after a particularly bard day, he didn ' t snore in his sleep. His only serious fault, was that the jokes he told were the kind that only relatives, sweethearts, and fourth classmen could laugh at.

However, Walter, which is his lawful first name, is always able to drag without much trouble; some of his lassies might be termed queens without stretching the imagination loo far.

As far as extra curricular activities, he has one back home who he claims can really make his violin cry. Athleti- cally all sports interest him, but wrestling has the spot closest to his heart. During one year, Howie took part in both boxing and wrestling iutermurals. The results??? Well, he ' s still a wrestler. Howie has also taken to shooting pis- tol in the last few years. His favorite academic subjects judged ably on semes- ter hours, are Time Magazine, and some research on how to make his homemade radio receive something more distant than the New London station. Neverthe- less, his marks stand pretty high in the class. One of his favorite hobbies is the Canadian north woods; he will undoubtedly own a lodge up on some northern lake before too many years have passed. His enemies are nil and his friends are many.

The speed with which he learned to drink startled everyone — most of all iiis father. The pap book gave ample evidence that Virge was extremely interested in a folk dance called jitterbugging. Everyone, csjiecially the girls down south, was interested in his dancing, it wasn ' t so nuicli tlie skill, whicli impressed ev- eryone but the energy with which he followed this esthetic pursuit, wiggling everything but his toes.

Once he got the urge to carve one of his briars — the result was the bow of a ship, complete with anchor chains.

Therefore, we shall say nothing about his first means of support — that of selling whiskey to the Indians; nor thai the AT T ' s stock sales fluctuate with his social activities. We shall mention only what is listed on the asset side of Dick ' s Ledger. Fir st, we all agree thai he should be assigned to a windjammer. Dick ' s peculiar ability to create storms would obliterate any chance of ever being becalmed. Secondly, he has an unfaltering set of principles which capture every one ' s respect. But we who know him treasure the sincerity of his friendship most of all. 188 J I liiflf Tcdiii 1. . ' 5. 2. ( ' .iii l(iiii I . . . I ' isliil Tcdni . ' ) . . . Photography Editor.

He could scrounge a master key to Fort Knox, and such tlupes as other cadets and the government are ducksoup to his mercenary schemes. In spite of the fabulous sums he collects (Gee, I need ten bucks, I ' d better sell a picture), he constantly bemoans his poverty-stricken condition. This can be attributed almost exclusively to the machinations of a girl down Teaneck way who clamped the ball and chain on our hero long ago. . . . Cupidon always manages to have the word — hot. cold, or lukewarm. When not shooting off his rifle or his mouth, he shoots with a camera ... a goodly niunber of the photos on these pages are his work. He is probably the only man in the Academy who e er had five radios in his room at the same time. There are two Taylors in this place: one who subscribes to magazines and one who reads them. If Rock ever gave up smoking, half the cadet corps would have to start buying their own. Where ever he goes we know the service will be Taylor-made to nit him.

To an organization often given over to gloom. Bernie has proved a Godsend. He brought from the Army an ever-cheery grin and exuberance which have helped us all over a lot of things. His reading tastes tend toward the humorous in all forms, and he has been a fairly regular visitor at S. M. ' s hole in the hopes of € tnC finding some new adventures of Dagwood to while away a boring study hour — if his carefully nurtured caches of chow have someliow run out. Speaking of chow, we come to Bernie ' s great weakness; where Mathews seeks women, and Clancy the fruit of the vine, Bernie restores any damage to his resilient spirit with a mon- strous combination of ice cream and bananas modestly described as a " milk- shake, " though the resultant volume of creamy goo would probably solve Eu- rope ' s food problems for many a day. Bernie is a good man to have around, even to a few bone-crushing stunts in the supposedly quiet game of volleyball. We all hope to have him around us on our stations after graduation ; life would be kinda dull without him. j 190 MMilB ■ Hi Ihinre Band 4, 2 . niaiifler. Company Cnni- Vk M VV. TIFFT, JR. YOUNGSTOWN, N. Y. Paul Tifft has had two big losses since his arrival atthis institution, hair auddia- nionds. Much the wiser for these experiences, he settled down in his second class year, slashing his way up from a dubious anchor position to at least three links above the swiwel. So far as we have been able to notice, there are three things that will send Pull into throes of passion : first, a record w ith a trumpet ride. Be- ing somewhat of a trumpeter himself, Paul can make you vibrate from the tips of your toes to the medulla oblogotta when he smacks a hot riff. Secondly in this line of bliss is a pipe well broken in and sweet as honey. Such an object dart can send more shiv ers up and down Pull ' s back than the proximity of — and that brings us to his third concern, women. His book of de-icers is complete with classy chassies from the shores of Sunny Cal to the suburbs of the Empire City. If Kil- roy wasn ' t there. Pull was.

They needed a simple, trouble-free distillation unit that would quick- ly produce an abundance of fresh water from the salty sea . . . without corrosion or frequent scaling troubles. The Maxim Silencer Company of Hartford, Conn., studied these problems and recently came up with a distillation unit that solves them all. In fact, after severe tests, this unit has proved so efficient that the Coast Guard has ordered them installed on 29 of its lightships. This new still produces 1100 gallons of fresh water per day. And, it operates at low pressure ... on exhaust steam. In operation, this unit blows off 1 pound of brine concentrate for every pound of fresh water that it makes. This relatively low brine concentration means a minimum of scaling. And when some scale eventually does form, descaling is easy. The Maxim still has no tube bundles. Instead there are two corrugated chambers of thin (.043 in.) sheet. One evaporates sea water, the other is a condensing chamber. To descale, you simply let 15 pounds of steam into the evaporator section, followed by cold sea water. The steam pres- sure expands the thin evaporator walls. Then the cold water condenses the steam, pulling a vacuum that sucks the wall inward. This flexing pops off scale accumulations. To take this flexing, and resist the corrosive action of boiling con- centrated brine, the finned evaporator chamber must be a material that is strong, ductile, tough, corrosion-resistant . . . and able to maintain these qualities. Maxim engineers found the answer in Monel . In fact, wherever they require a strong, corrosion-resistant material throughout the entire still— for piping, flanges, float chamber and e llip- tical Nicholson float, even for the lightweight outer shell of Vs inch sheet —they use Monel for long, trouble-free service life. Find out more about this unit. Here is a long-lasting, dependable, and unusually economical source of fresh, pure water for thirsty men or boilers. Here also is another interesting illustration of how durable, corrosion- resistant Inco Nickel Alloys are serving modern Marine Engineers.

The evap- orator is mounted on a steam chest. The all-important corrugations are visible in the condenser section shown above. In operation, sea water is admitted through the top section of the shell, where it circulates through the upper chamber as cooling water. From there, at a temperature of 200 it passes through a float valve, which controls the water level, and thence around the evaporator sec- tion. Steam inside the evaporator section now boils the water and the vapor produced rises toward the condenser section. There it con- denses, collects, and is led off by a distillate pipe.

Oi " gaiiize l in 1927. the Propeller Club now has more than one hundred Ports located throughout the United States and eleven countiies abroad. Our primarj- objective is to |)roinote, further and support a strong Aiueriean Merchant Marine, capable of serving effectively as an auxiliary to the national defense in time of emergency, and adequate to our peacetime requirements for the trans- portation of our domestic waterborne commerce and a substantial poilion of our import and export trade. From the time of the Propeller Club ' s organization, the United States Coast Guard has cooperated in the work of our association. We have been honored with the membership of many hundreds of Coast Guard officers who have par- ticipated in our activities. Graduates of the Class of 1948 are cordially invited to affiliate with the Propeller Club Port nearest to their stations of duty. They will find a warm welcome, good fellowship, and mutual devotion to the best interests of the American Merchant Marine.

SHIPS ON THE HORIZON " I didn ' t think it was possible. " Those are words of praise for an unusual accomplishment and very acceptable in the best circles as a great compliment, but to the shore staff of Alcoa it is anything but a compliment to the American Merchant Marine. You will probably think this is strange. Let me explain. This year Alcoa acquired three passenger ships and we are now running cruises to the West Indies. We were told by people who should know that an American operator could not run a vessel of this kind because we could not give the service that this class of passenger demanded. There were so many comments of this type that there was much " fear and trembling " in this office the day the first vessel sailed. But she returned with very few complaints and the suc- ceeding voyages have been made with many compliments and fewer and fewer complaints. Recently a man well acquainted with American shipping returned from one of these cruises and when asked about the trip the " I didn ' t think it was possible " came out. He really should be blamed for this tirade. It is up to you with your training and background to help overcome the reluctance of the American people to believe in and back the American Merchant Marine. It is possible to run American vessels that are a credit to " Old Glory " and the public must be taught to expect good service from American vessels and not be surprised when they find it so. With your help it can be done. Sincerely, RPS:KA Manager F arine Department 209 QiKility MerchdtuUse Kiisil .■l.■(l.•.l n conMiltiiif: HK.WKTT BROS.

Today, B RB19R ceramic-insulated avia- tion plugs spark the ships on air lines pro- viding passenger and freight service on every continent and across all the seas of the globe. Efficiency, economy, long service life, depend- ability, and quality are the reasons why B spark plugs have attained this position. And THE back of all are the unceasing research and development at B which have kept pace with every advance in aviation. B spark plugs are also firing jet propulsion engines and aviation gas turbines, both in actual flight installations and in experimental projects. As aviation broaches new frontiers, we pledge that B engineering will , as in the past , supply spark plugs precisely designed for each specific need and manufactured accord- ing to the most rigid standards.
