" Move in a little closer, dear children. Noiv, when I was on the old square- rigger, ' Danmark ' back in ' 45 . . . " U.S.e4- ' Danmark U.S.C.Q. Atlantic The Danish training ship, " Danmark, " and the services of Captain Hansen, its officers and crew, were placed at the disposal of the United States government when Germany invaded Denmark, and the " Danmark " was in New York on a world cruise. The Danish Merchant Marine cadets aboard applied for active duty, and tlie ship was assigned to the Academy, where Captain Hansen and First Lieutenant Langavaard efficiently and patiently trained officer candidates. The ' " Danmark " was released from the Coast Guard in 1945, and returned home. The " Atlantic " was built about 1900 and in the proud days of her youth won the Kaiser Cup, and set the Sandy Hook-The Lizard record which stood for over a generation. Most of the class of ' 49 have a very personal feeling for her. Unfortunately, it is not unanimously one of nostalgic affection. However, the fact remains that she made a great contribution to the American tradi- tion of seamanship and sailing, and was a strong factor in inculcating some of the " lore of the sea " which we absorbed during our davs as cadets.

Gents 100 DAYS L p and shoulders ' 49 was the last class to enjoy the exquisite pleasure of venting righteous and accumulated wrath on the heads of the oppressors, and the second and third classes were an anxious lot when Hundredth Day dawned. Their fears were well grounded, as we managed to devise some really cunning schemes for our temporan, di- version. The cry " Air Raid! " followed hy the sound of bodies bouncing off the marble decks reechoed through Chase Hall. Nobody ate much chow — ' 19 because it was laughing too hard and " 48 never had the chance, unless it was taken externally and then absorbed. Days were re- quired to remove the signs of recent conflict from rooms and wearing apparel. There were satisfied smiles on our faces at the end of that day, and the thoughts uppermost in our minds was: " Only 99 more days to go, thank God! " — AYS TO GO, SIR! l dessert. Gents . . . M m H S3 B Fourth class year was composed of three ihings: CLASSES. REGULATIONS, and lib- erty. A fortunate few had served time in some college, but the rest of us found the spectre of the Academic Board a constant companion. In our " free " time we were en- joined by the upper classes to study such classics as " Running Light, " and " C. G. Regulations, " and to expound at stated length upon such noteworthy topics as the price of gum drops in Cheboygan, Dorothy Dix, and " Once there was a very smart dog- " The Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw formed half of our summer ' s cruise. She is the world ' s largest icehreaker, and operates on the Great Lakes, being busily engaged each fall and spring in keeping the shipping lanes open as long as possible for the great ore carriers. The Mackinaw has three screws — two aft, and another forward, near the bow — this unusual arrangement enables her to literally " turn on a dime " — as of the present time, there hasn " t been any ice formed that can stop her. With a beam of over 70 feet, and a length in excess of 270 feet, she is a very comfortable vessel to ride. Possessed with turbo-electric drive, she is powered by six Fairbanks Morse opposed piston diesel engines which provide the power to drive the three D.C. motors through generators. The steering was entirely electric — electric motors driving the rudder arm on a geared quadrant. She also had a unique system for changes in trim and heel — being able to shift ballast and complete one rolling cycle in 45 seconds — this is of prime importance in breaking through stubborn ice blocks. Her navigational equipment consisted, in part, of radar and R.D.F. Aft. she had a special automatic tension adjusting towing winch, and two Westinghouse cranes for raising and lowering boats, and other heavy work as required. 26 I T t If i ■ ' tl ' JL lance , » Ai 4i, Iniiiu ' diatcly following the graduation of the class of ' 47, we went on summer leave, returning at the end of June to find two ships, the Sebago and the Mackinaw, wait- ing and willing to take cadets on a cruise. The class was split into two groups; the first group entrained for Buffalo, to pick up the Mackinaw there. After a delay of a day, occasioned by a rescue operation on the Lakes, the Mackinaw pulled into the Coast Guard base at Buffalo, and we went aboard. Here we were given the usual berthing and quarters assignments, and cruise routine had begun. During the time we spent on the great white bird, we were given drills in small boat handling, fire and rescue, damage control, engineering, navigation, and gen- eral seamanship. We had our first opportu- nity to stand O.D. watches, and became fa- faniiliar with responsibility. During the cruise we visited Milwaukee, Mackinac Island, Cheboygan, Calcite, Detroit, Erie, and Buffalo. We took a tour of the lime- stone quarry, saw the mammoth steam shovels big enough to hold twenty men; took another tour of Ford ' s River Rouge Plant, and were initiated into the mysteries of an assembly line; saw the insides of steel plants, tool and die plants, and foundries: and saw how they loaded the ore boats. Dances were thrown on board for visitors at various ports, and the citizens cooperated by throwing their own shindigs. Ready to go Good liberty in thai SEBAGO CRUISE U.S.C.G.C. Sebaco The U.S.C.G.C. SEBAGO is a 255 foot cutter, approximately 2200 tons displacement, tur- bo-electric drive, boiler pressure about 600 psi. 4000 shaft horsepower. She has a beam in the neighborhood of forty feet, and since she has a fairly high metacentric height, her motion in a seaway left something to be de- sired. There is a designed drag of 3 feet (in certain low circles, this class has been jestingly referred to as the " Fiasco Class " — jokingly, of course.) She had loran and radar and the usual R.D.F. Due to the fact that men were Ijeing dis- charged from the service as rapidly as pos- sible at that time, there existed a severe manpower shortage, with the net result that the " Bag " was manned with only a skeleton crew. She had just left the yard at Curtis Bay, and there was considerable work of the " protective maintenance " type to be per- formed — and, you guessed it, we did the per- forming. It got so that we even shied away from using tooth brushes — they reminded us too much of the wire brushes. We stood watches similar to the ones we stood on the Mackinaw — with the addition of 2 1 hour duty as Navigator — this jol) con- sisted mainly of hiding out up in the weather shack, plotting our positions, and taking a squint at the bridge ' s chart to make sure that we were in the general area. This por- tion of the cruise was marked by numerous formations — it was almost a sure thing that as soon as you lay down, or even looked at a book (textbook, of course I there would be a raucous request for our immediate presence on the " fantail " . There were note- books to be filled out, and quizzes to be taken in gunnery, engineering, and nav. The liberty on this cruise was what might be termed " scanty " — Antigua proved to be one of the better ports, and when that hap- pens, you might as well stay on board. There did happen to be an Army base there, and the day was marked by long streams of tired cadets wending their way across the island in search of ice-cream and cokes. We also made a stop in the Virgin Islands, and in Bermuda. When we hit Nassau, the local in- habitants very nicely threw a dance for us, which we all enjoyed. Nevertheless, we did gain considerable practical experience, and our first real insight into the hidden mech- anisms and inner workings of the sei-vice. Flying down to Bermuda Six men from " 49 were chosen to crew on the two Academy schooners, with Joe Ward, Garry Crispell, and Dick Cox on the Tera- grani. and Bill Shaw, Jack Stackweather, and Jack Clark aboard the Curlew. These six remained at the Academy during leave, and pi-epared the boats. By June 25th both were in Newport awaiting the start of the Ber- muda Race. , ABOARD THE CURLEW: We got under weigh on the afternoon of the 26th in a breeze strong enough to blow the jib topsail sheets. There was a heavy fog, and all sight of the rest of the fleet was soon lost. The wind held for four days, and we remained on the starboard tack. It was fine sailing, and the Curlew kept her rail awash most of the time. The best 24 hour run was about 200 miles, and we found out later that the Curlew was second at this point. We were counting on a wind shift to the eastward in this area, however, and we lay in a flat calm about 60 miles from Bermuda for several days, when it failed to material- ize. The Teragram made port about five hours after we did. The Curlew remained in Bermuda six days and then started for home. The return trip was very rough; one night seven men were laid up with seasickness, leaving only three to work the ship. When we arrived in New London we were dead tired but happy, with one of the best times of our lives just be- hind us, and a ten day leave in the imme- diate future. 30 Starbo ird tuck .vk Miiii of distinclion There were only two things lacking at the dinner at the end of our third class year — invited guests, and light. We are blameless on the first count, l)Ut must plead guilty to the second. To the romanticists of the Class of ' 49, the idea of dinner by candlelight was most appealing. The possible conse- quences of groping with a steak dinner in semi-darkness never occurred to us. How- ever, proceeded by punch in our rec room (well-lighted) and with a Formal Dance (also well-lighted) following the dinner was a brilliant success, a prelude to Second Class summer. In the clover It ' s a bird. no. il ' s n ' copter Off ice go LOOK, MA Elizabeth City, jewel of North Carolina, a thriving metropolis in the land of citronella and the Southern drawl. On the outskirts of this charming community is an establish- ment proclaimed by its sign to be an Air Station. Indeed, all manner of flying ma- chines are to be seen hereabouts, from mos- quitoes to PBlG ' s, the former holding a slight numerical edge. The three weeks we spent at " E " City were interesting and varied to say the least. To most of us novices, ie: those who have had no previous contact with service aviation, it was an education par excellence in " How to fly in three easy lessons " . Of course, we had been exposed to the theory of flight, and the principles of modern aviation, but when confronted with the mysteries of weather maps, radial engines, helicopters. Link trainers, and other apurtenances of to- day ' s armies, we decided to take to the pool, small boats, and tennis courts for our edu- cation. Several trips, one to the Navy Repair Base in Not ' olk, and one to the Lighter Than Air Base in Andersonville, proved most instruc- tive. Those brave souls, the pilots, who al- lowed us to fly the PBY ' s, PBM ' s, and PBlG ' s displayed truly epic courage. " Thy will be done — but, please don ' t do it again. " " NITtD STATES ,COAST GUARD ■■■■■■■innMitrmiH m ' ' I ' M FLYING! ( )iir liberty tiuie at the air station was rather lilieral — there were a few night watches to he stood, hut they were of the " acclimation " type — cadets heing needed for those duties ahout as much as the proverbial fifth wheel. Every- afternoon after the days flying, the boys could be found playing tennis, stand- ing on the road into town with hopeful ex- pressions, swimming in the base pool, or just doping off. There were movies every night, with bus service to and from same. One of the major amusements turned out to be the sport of " Cowboys and Indians " , which consisted, in large part, of careening madly around the airstrip in jeeps and " cats ' " — no doul)t this practice endeared us no end with the maintenance gang who at- tempted to keep the vehicles in repair. A week or so before we shoved off the offi- cers of the base very nicely threw a party for us at the Officers Club — the local belles were rounded up, and all hands invited. Music was furnished by jukebox, and the bar was loaded — with all kinds of coke and ginger ale. Each of us got a weekend liberty while we were there — people took off like scalded dogs in all directions — New York City and Pittsburgh were reached by the more adven- turous souls.

This was the general opinion expressed when we returned from the short cruise aboard the EAGLE and ATLANTIC our second class summer. Our boy Coleridge. S.

It began in the summer with ma- chine tool lab, surveying, and navigation. No one will ever forget the carefree hours spent in scraping our little metal blocks, or meas- uring the river depth with lead lines whose foot markings varied from 9 11 16 to 10 37 43 in. When considering the first term, the subject of Differential Equations imme- diately springs to mind — it looked so simple when Commander Sharp put the stuff on the board — the quizzes, though, were im- ] ossiI)lc; since 25% was passing, and we gol 20 points for writing our names, we all inanagod to get by. The other thing of note was the national disaster which was averted by the quick thinking of a certain economic council who prohibited our reading of a very good textbook on economics. The sec- ond term opened with a bang — and a quiz in seamanship. In fact, looking back over the year, it seemed to be just one merry round of quizzes.

The dinner pre- ceding the dance was marked as much by the presence of gold braid as our previous ones had been lacking in it. Soft lights, soft music, flowers and good food made the oc- casion an enjoyable one. The Admiral re- minded us that we were Hearing the last lap at the Academy and urged us to make full use of our time here. The dance com- mittee, aided by strong class reserves, vowed to succeed where others had failed, and they did: a mammoth ring surrounded by a pool (which held water) and a fountain set on a grassy knoll. Each couple went through the age-old ceremony; birth of a new era. 46 Tirst Class year - ( A GALLANT SHIP FOR AN OCEAN TRIP . . . U.S.C.G.C. CAMPBtLL What are the passing honors for a ship of Upper Slobovia? What do I do if a man goes overboard? How many pairs of socks shall I take? Anybody got any old whites they want to get rid of? We were preparing for our first class cruise. All year we had been subjected to the usual flood of unre- liable rumors concerning destination and itinerary — now we knew — England was wait- ing with open arms to receive " well-heeled " cadets. The burning question of the hour was " Will a well-packed sea bag be ade- quate for two and a half months at sea? — we compromised, and lugged two bulging sea bags, dust covers, and the ever present camera and sun glasses down to the CAMP- BELL and EAGLE. June week was over — we had received our rings, and the narrow stripe of a first classman, and we entered ixpon the cruise that determined our " fit- ness " as future officers, ft was to be two and a half months under the watchful eyes of Academy officers — es])ecially on the EAGLE ( Cadet O.D.

Eagle Campbell tons the Euiile SEAMANSHIP DRILLS Lower away together — this familiar shout brings to mind memories of myriad drills, exercises, and frantic fumblings that ensued on board the CAMPBELL and EAGLE when ca- dets sprang into action. At 1300 daily quarters and drills were held. The first and third classmen were given instructions in preparing block and tackle rigs, breeches buoy drill, fuel- ing at sea, gunnery ( on the CAMP- BELL only) and the handling of small boats alongside in a seaway. Perhaps the two trickiest drills were the fueling at sea, and the breeches buoy drills — close cooperation be- tween fairly large groups of men was required, plus expert ship liandling. From the standpoint of interest, firing practice with the 20 ' s, 40 ' s, and the 5 inch held top honors. The lighter guns fired at balloons, while the 5 inch plugged away at a surface target.

As far as the island towns went, it seemed to the more cynical of us that Headquarters must have had a large Seabec construction corps whose sole job consisted in rushing around disassembling the town we had just left and hurriedly putting it back together at our next scheduled port.

M team was usually paced ])y " Grumpy " Clark, a very calm and smart dinghy sailor, and probably the best Star skipper the Academy has ever had. Bill Shaw proved to be a nat- ural, and displayed real talent at the art of keeping a boat moving fast. The class of 1951 now claims credit for the other top- flight sailor. Larry White, who has the ver nice habit of high-scoring meets. Joe Ward and Roy Lewis were very alile crews, and a great aid to their skipper. Andy Fugaro was a fine crew, especially when it blew hard, and often showed a very deft touch as a helmsman; as did George Rynick while he was sailing. Charlie Blaha. who didn ' t know a sheet from a subway strap when be came here, became a keen skipper and a veteran sailor. Col. Hyers, who considered racing only one good part of sailing, con- tributed a small share to the team record, and was for two years considered the best living proof that sailing can be dangerous. Reggie Raynor was a capable crew, whose chief claim to fame was the expert way he needled his skipper to do better. USC6A SAILING A memorable four years was had by the Forty-Niners who sailed together as mem- bers (in questionable standing) of the re- doubtable sailing " fraternity " . They com- peted skillfully against the finest teams in inter-collegiate sailing, and always finished in the top ranks, even in the best of major competition. The toughest opponents to outsail were generally Yale, Harvard. Brown, M.I.T.. Boston U.. and Navy; but we had the satisfaction of defeating all of them at some time, and some of them often. The team was off to a promising start by winning the Freshman Championship in 1945, and culminated the record with the Danmark Trophy last fall, in a strongly contested meet that had an international aspect in the entry of two Canadian teams. The class was fortunate to have two skip- pers as capable as the co-Captains.

Everyone in " Forty Nine " has been able to pass the qualification tests for dinghies, at one time or another during the past four years, and many of us have gone far beyond that stage — progressing to the " pi-ofessional " stage of knockabouts, sloops, and, grand climax, stars. Weekend cruises are a rather popular form of recrea- tion; with an Officer-In-Charge to oversee things in general, cadets take off on Satur- day afternoon, and come wearily back the following evening, muttering sleepily of the wonders to be found in a days sailing on the sound, and of the relaxation afforded by an evening away from the Academy. Ot hers, being of a more social turn of mind, prefer to go for only an afternoon ' s recreation, with the added attraction (or hazard as tin- case may be) of dragging dates along. Of course, rough weather is encountered every once in awhile, and then the boys spend the day feebly trying to navigate the length of the river; but these occurrences were infre- quent. Our class is one of the " sailing ' st " to go through the Academy in a long while — and the returns in pleasure have been well worth the time spent. SPORTS TRACK in ' 48 For the past few years there has existed at the Academy a " make-up " spring track team, and every afternoon groups of perspiring people could be seen milling around on the periphery of the football field (our " track " I — finally, two seasons ago, someone fouled up somehow, and the track team became le- gitimate. This year the team really came into its own, winning two out of the four scheduled meets. The opener went to Wes- leyan 881 4 to 461 2. The cadets captured six first places, four second slots, and five thirds — we lost the meet, however, due to the fact that we were unable to place in five of the events. Connecticut was next, and they took us into camp 88 to 47 — this time because, again, we did very- well in the running cards, hut not so well in the field events. Trinity, on the other hand was a different tale. We captured all of the running events, and in addition, managed to take the broad jump, thanks to the excellent all-round work of Harry Keller. We also took the last meet of the season, taking New Britain Teachers by 31 points.

Among collegiate circles the Academy has been known not because of its high scholastic requirements, nor because of brilliant chess teams, but because of its excellent boxing team. It is the only field in which the Academy can successfully compete with any University in the country, regardless of enrollment. In 1945 the Academy won the Eastern In- tercollegiate Championship — competing against the best schools in this region. We iiave invariably had champions, or near- champs in individual classes each year — a commentary upon the excellence of " Mickey " McClernon ' s tutelage. The sud- den cessation of activity in the squared circle brought a screeching halt to many 49 ' ers " sports activities, as we had a higher j)roportion of the class out for this sport than for any other.

The Coast Guard Academy is, above all else, a military institution; as such, the quality of cadet military drill is of the utmost importance. With this in mind, the schedule calls for two hours a week during the fall and spring to be spent in drill on the parade ground. In addition, there are numerous formal parades, retreats, and re- views that are made throughout the year. The fourth class receive a constant drilling in manual of arms and facing movements; the net result being a very smart battalion that has never ceased to win praise from observers; this de- spite that fact that the time allotted from our busy class schedules for drill is far less than that allotted in institutions of a similar nature.

The primary purpose of this group is to place the Academy in its proper place alongside the other service academies in the public eye. The dissemination of news is handled by three depts. : Sports, Radio, and General Info. Two additional dtpts.. Distribution and Photography, handle the technical end. The General Info Div. has divided the U.S. into six districts. These areas are thoroughly scouted for news, radio, and magazine channels. Major ar- ticles, complete with seven or eight pics per copy, are released regularly. Future plans include extensive coverage in news- papers, magazines, and radio programs throughout the country. Within the next few years we hope to make the Academy well known to every tax-payer.

The trend of American youth at that time was toward civil- ian pleasures, and it was amid jeers of " Hey, Sucker! " that we buzzed off to New London. Some of us whis- pered fond farewells to our mothers and sweethearts, while the rest of us journeyed down to the local tavern for a last story and drink with our fellow-members of the 52-20 club. To some, " Swab Summer " was a lark, to others a nightmare — but to all. it was something new. It was not until late summer that the Great White Bird appeared like a gift from Satan, that we got to know each other. On board, with the aid of meagre plumb- ing, our distinctive personalities emerged. " Swab Sum- mer " ended, and the wolf packs descended u])on the flocks, to drive the ducks into the desert and the camels into the river. Thus continued the fall, and as the jolly red-nosed God prepared his toys for the children, we descended like frustrated hordes upon our favorite haunts. After finals, time began to pass more smoothlv. and, as the upperclasses waded rhythmically through the ring, those of us who escaped the mopping-up detail prepared for the cruise. After the cruise came leave, and then we were Third Classmen. That year passed with only a few minor bumps, and the disappearance of a few faces. Now comes the final phase of our Academy training: the practice made of theory learned — what will be the out- come is unknown — but there will always be a class of ' 50. ADAMS, R. K. St. Petersburg.

The " Great White Father " down in Washington had supplied us with uniforms, which we monogrammed across the front in black paint — with this act we formally became an entity — the class of ' 51. First on the agenda was a six week period consisting of smoking in the corridors, seeing who could yell the loudest at mess, sailing, swimming, and gamboling about. This period was punctuated by classes, during which time we learned that there is no rhyme nor reason to the way rooms are numbered in Saterlee Hall. Suddenly a change — somewhere a gangway was dropped and we were beset by demons — tall, short, fat ones — the upper cl asses. After a " short ' cruise on the EAGLE we settled down to classes, griping, carry- ing more laundry than a diaper service, and learning to be part of the Corps. Christmas Leave came and went — then June Week, and we were third classmen. Three months of coflfee-less mid-to-four watches, fire drills, boat drills, chipping hammer drills, and " good passe teme " in London, Paris, etc. set the stage for New London, and leave. After leave we realized we could talk at mess — we could even be happy — the uniform begins to fit. LCDR Victor Pjeiffer Class Adviser ADAMSON, G. P. New York, N. Y. ALEXANDER, J.

The burly second classmen who were with us on the Short Cruise soon introduced us to the mysteries of " Protective Maintenance ' " . In those random days of tacking from Block Island to Boston and back again, we were exposed to more elementary seaman- ship than we could ever hope to absorb in one sitting. Upon our return to the Academy from the Great White Bird, our way of life changed considerably ( Dept. of I n- der-statement ) — our first liberty (when the " lilues " finally arrived) — for those lucky few who rated it; the town and Conn. Coll. ladies who helped us to orient ourselves with the great metropolis of New London — and to put thoughts of " that girl at home " further and further back in our minds. With the begin- ning of the first academic term we found that what we had found difficulty in accomplish- ing on the cruise was mere child ' s play in comparison with the work that now faced us. Now, with the first year behind us, those who survived the gaff believe that, with the as- sistance of our class adviser. Mr. Vaughn, there is every opportunity for us to become one of the best classes to go through the Academy in several years. LCDR Vaughn Class Adviser Costello. Field, Burchett. K Murphy. Malloy.

The Engineering Department, and, subsequently, the Academic Board failed to see eye to eye with our hero ' s views as expressed through the medium of his steam quizzes: 01 Dim Bulb Snibbs trudged right out the gate again, ears wing and wing before the wind — headed for the Merchant Marine and a ]jit of seasoning on the seven seas and hither and yon about the globe. The summer of " 45 saw history repeating itself, with Namron luffed-up before our gate, completely outfitted with a new and more conforming set of views about steam — apparently they were satisfactory, cuz here he be, and the By-Gosh editor of this rag, yet! The only other notable progress made in Snibb ' s career has been that of his hairline, which has advanced to the rank of a Ward. Shelley, or Grump Clark, and still seems to be on its way. An outstandingly outspoken member of the " Mound City Blue Blowers Protective League and Burial So- ciety " , Namron is a self-appointed critic of all this screeching and yodeling they call " music " these davs. He is ii) his own brand of Seventh Heaven while stomping to the two-beat strains of " Big Fat Butterfly " or some such pearl of the glorious days of Jazz featuring Art Hodes and his " Backroom Boys " or others of this ilk. from PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Severn School 118 NORMAN BROWN BINNS Boxing ' 43, ' 44, ' 45, ' 46, ' 47; Tennis 4, 3; Cross Country 4, 3; Co-Sports Ed.

Charlie ' s friends have acquired an amused forbearance of his obsession that the owner of a striking profile should, at every impulse, lapse into song, Shakespeare, or French. There are other indica- tions that he ' s a subdued romantic; and a lucky few have observed his narcotic addiction to poetrv ' and purple prose. Amongst the ladies Charles is a subject for considerable speculation, and has led everyone but himself to the conclusion that their whims, to a large extent, occupy his thoughts during liberty hours. He spends long hours composing his letters; evidently they must meet with success, for he ' s been seen after liberty hours with more than a little angora fluff on his blues. Early in his cadet life he began to sail. And now his enthusi- asm for dinghies is surpassed only by his fascination for Star boats, which in turn is overshadowed only by his passion for schooner sailing. His usual happy approach to any task or diversion has earned him a place with the damp and rowdy sailing crew.

" Also wields a wicked magnetic pick-up arm in the " back-to-music " movement in our rec room. One of Gordon ' s outstanding contributions to the Academy has been his work in getting the Classical Record Club underway. This valuable addition to the joy of living around here was largely due to his initiative. Not yet the steady type, he ' s still looking the women over. Has a ready stock of queens, and fixes up his friends with the best of them. This is sometimes a severe test of friendship.

" You ' ll rarely find him that fouled up in a boat or around the waterfront, though, for Grumpy is one of the best sailors ever to hit old CGA. The Corps generally acknowledges him to be the best seaman here. Originally born in Baltimore. Maryland, Jack has lived most of his life on the Chesapeake Bay, at Annapolis, where he obtained his sailing experience in Moth boats and Hampton One Designs. This experience led to the fulfillment of one of his long-time desires — sailing in a Bermuda Race. He sailed on the " Curlew " in the 1946 Newport to Bermuda Race. Between sailing when he could, and hunting squirrels, (delicious fried, on buttered toast, for breakfast) and " raybits, " to the sound of baying hound " dowgs, " he managed to graduate from Annapolis High School. His joking ceases quite often, revealing a lot of practical common sense and a head full of ideas which, though sometimes revolutionary with respect to accepted standards, would make things much easier for all concerned. It turns out that invariably they are as good as, if not better than, " the only way it can be done.

" Behind that greeting every ninth of September there hirks a true son of CaHfomia. Any cadet who doesn ' t know that California became the thirty-first state in September of 1850 hasn ' t been around Dick for long. He ' s sure that Cahf ornia must be heaven, but wants to try Alaska for his first assignment. An outdoorsman from way back, weekends find him hiking over the local landmarks; and leave brings up such problems as ways and means of completing a proposed expedition to climb Mt. Shasta (just preparing for those Alaska peaks). The fair sex also receive a share of his liberty time, par- ticularly in the picnic season. Dick arrived here virtually a married man. but found himself enjoying cruise liberty far too well to settle down. Seldom lets anything bother him, including the regs or studies. Needless to say, he ' s been among those present at many a restricted men ' s formation. Usually spends his class time drawing cartoons and caricatures of his instructors. Even so, he ' s right up there in his academic work when he remembers to do it — which isn ' t often. Dick leaves the impression of being in a quiet, but still quite thorough and perpetual, storm. Learned to shine in Californiay ' s ROTC and hasn ' t gotten out of the habit yet. Uses his shoes for a mirror, and polishes the doorknobs for inspection. A chowhound, first, last, and always, he can be counted on to be among the last leaving the mess hall; while his cheerful disposition will make him a good shipmate, be it Alaska or elsewhere. from BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA C.

DIPE he mighty muscle-man of the class — a chow hound from the word, " Seats " — Lord, help us if he is ever elected to the mess committee; his passion for odd Hungarian dishes would surely be our gastronomic doom. Jooles is a mighty hunter of the wild — just ask any one of a number of game wardens from Long Island. As a Swab he delighted in going up and down the stays of the DAN- MARK hand-over-hand — used to put considerable strain on the vocal cords of first classmen during rifle workouts: the secret was that he worked out every night after taps with two rifles. He is inclined to snooze frequently, especially in class — dreams of either girls and a bottle of wine, or of chasing ducks through the frigid swamps of Long Island — is among the very small minority who enjoy rowing. Other interests besides the pursuit of wine, women, and caloused hands are photography, wood carving, and classical music. Jooles is an excellent " wife, " especially when it comes to polishing up the room for Saturday inspection. Opposing wrestlers have discovered that Jooles is not to be trifled with. He has come a long way since Swab year, and " Dupe " has made an enviable record bv hard work and determination. from PATCHOGUE.

BILL SUALLY the first man from ' 49 to get back home every leave, Willie is prac- tically a day student in our fair institution. Even so, he considers it perfectly outrageous that the Connecticut bus company should charge him thirty-five cents for the long trip home. His main activity in the barracks is defending the wonderful New England climate: " Connecticut has lovely weather! This air is so bracing! I don ' t see how you guys can say such awful things about our climate! " And on, and on. Bill has been described as the most faithful man on the Chapel Committee, and can be counted on to preside over Harkness Chapel every restricted weekend. A typical endomorph, Willie is always trying to rid himself of the padding with which Mother Nature has so generously provided him. At least you ' ve got to give him credit for his undying determina- tion. And his ability to withstand prolonged kidding about his ample propor- tions is unequaled as evidenced by his great work, " How To Gain Weight ith- out Eating. " Willie is an excellent man to live with. His high position on the precedence list and his willingness to do more than his share of the work make him an extremely handy man to have around — and it ' s safe to say he ' ll still be that way in thirty years. from NORWICH.

ANDY THOUGH of foreign nationality (his ancestry is reputedly Brooklyn aris- tocracy), Andy has had little difficulty in making fast friends with the natives. Particularly adept is he at a sport of great fame in the old country — pool. " Eight ball in de side pocket, tree banks, " has become a familiar phrase in our luxuri- ous rec room: his African golf is a great hit with the boys; and in the paste- board department, they hang out the S. R. O. sign when he draws two " bicycles. " Another favorite of Andy ' s is food, with spaghetti as his specialty. Once while he was cook on a schooner cruise, the menu consisted exclusively of spaghetti until he was carried bodily from the galley. Sailing is yet another of his ac- complishments, and by throwing his weight around he is said to have held dinghies steady in a force 5 wind. A regular " red mike, " Andy usually takes care of the punch samjjling and cake testing department at the fonnals. How- ever, during the past glories of March Weekend he cut a wide swath with a brunette who, unfortunately, has since become married — not to our hero, how- ever. Later, a brief encounter with a fast-talking hostess at a Conn College dance brought about a re-declaration of his bachelor status.

Steele — " Cadet Ideal — a shining example of " Adventure Is My Career. He is well noted for a certain tenacity with regard to personal ideals; if an argument is desired, Jim is always there; your viewpoint is irrelevant, R.A.B. will invariably take the opposite side and maneuver you into an untenable position. Known by a host of nicknames, such as the ' " Needbam Needle, ' ' etc., his favorite is " Skipper, " ' bestowed upon him by the light of his life Dorcas " Randy " Neal, the living testimonial to " Never Underestimate The Power Of A Woman. " His athletic prowess, well displayed in the ancient art of shin- kicking (i.e.: soccer) rose to a higher plane when he became the ace hurler for the Academy Ijaseball team, rising to its Captaincy in his First Class year. His winters have been spent sharp-sightedly squeezing off bulls-eyes down on the rifle range; this practice gaining him a place among the country ' s top sharp- shooters. No description of " J. S. " would be suffici ently adequate without a sly reference to his mastery of the fine art of blinker; to quote a now famous phrase " Good sending. Cadet Gracey " which a perspiring C.Q.M. sent in reply to an awe inspiring 175 word drill message on the last cruise. This is just a minor example of the diligence which has brought him into the top ten of the class. His ready, and often too-willing, humor along with his willingness to lend a hand to anv man in need have made him a staunch friend to the class. from NEEDHAM, MASSACHUSETTS Needham High School 144 ■•■■■u Ul " enalile f- " eic, Dorcas wet Of »( shin, ' lertor -Jf.

PEDRO Tri x AILING from the sunny Southwest, Bob is distinctive in the class for not swearing his home town is the one livable spot in the U. S. He stepped from his cactus cradle into the University of New Mexico and then the Army — in which organizations he developed the cosmopolitan tastes which make him equally at home in concert and beer hall. Bob ' s love for music is displayed in his abil- ity to make the most poorly tuned piano sit up and talk, plus a little composing on the side. Another favorite occupation consists of whipping merely debatable questions into twelve-cylinder arguments. Robert claims no addiction to nicotine, but he may be found every morning thirty seconds after the last bite of break- fast feverishly attempting to break the world ' s speed record for burning a Lucky. A member of the Philosophy Club, Bob halts the clock the instant the subject arises. After a year and a half of deriding Connecticut College, Bob found Polly in Ye Olde Vinal Coffee Shoppe. He has been patting himself on the back ever since for his unerring nose for the noose. Complete honesty and frankness are outstanding characteristics of Mr. H., while his attitude in day-to-day life might be summed up in the motto: " I stand for the rights of the individual — honestly and legally arrived at.

HERBY EK since he was a little one Hcrby wanted to be a Coast Guard Officer, even his years at Vallev Forge didn ' t show him the error of his ways. A con- firmed Red Mike, Herby showed up with a date one dark day, and rapidly joined the ranks of the ball-and-chain club. Rumor hath it. and the mail orderlies agree, that he was hit hard the day Evelyn showed up. H. M. has had the distinction of being the only member of our merry group to remain on first conduct for over three straight winters, but with first class weekends in sight, this record came to a screeching halt. A Tide Rips photographer, and one of no mean ability with the little black box, Herby devoted his " spare " hours to catching 49 ' ers in unflattering poses: puttering around in the bilges of Chase Hall muttering happily to himself, pouring foul-smelling chemicals from one vial to another, clicking enlargers, turning water taps, ringing bells, flicking switches, and in general having one hell of a good time manufacturing pictures of excellent quality, though his production schedule was erratic, to say the leasts witness the grey hairs on the editor ' s dome.

A 149 " HAWKEYE he boy from the rolling plains, better known as " Hawk " or " Fish, " is recog- nized in the best bull session circles as the corn-fed expert ; and also, as leader of the little band of intellectuals known as the Philosophy Club, famous along the coast from the Carolines to Massachusetts. He always has a constant battle with inspecting officers on the question of uniform; somehow he always looks as if he has just donned a fresh gunny sack. Phenomenal luck in any game of chance, he has been a banker to those less fortunate in attracting the green stuff. The smoking lamp is perpetually lit as far as the Fish is concerned. Nicotine is his constant companion until football season arrives; then, amidst wails of anguish and biting of fingernails, a tapering-off process is begmi. Strongest man in the class, he looks like ten men when lugging the footltall through opposing linemen. Good man until he starts to sing. Only way to keep peace and quiet in the room is to get him interested in a Western novel — reads more Westerns than any other man alive.

LARRY ARRY is a true son of the " lumljer-jack " state as regards to size. He definitely wins the title in this class, from the angle of protection, as " the guy I want on my side. " His build is quite possibly derived from his affinity for food, for Larry is a disciple of the fine art of eating. Attempts to put the old hulk into active service for CGA on the football field have led only to dismal failure. Sterl- ing endeavors during his first two full seasons ended abruptly in severe injury to a weak ankle, and resulted in his watching the leaves tuni to brown from a window in sick bay. His efforts in track, however, have been somewhat more successful, and he has gained a reputation as being a slinger of the . . . discus. Well up on the list as regards to the giay matter, he is definitely not averse to relaxation. In fact his delight in spinning " sea stories " ended the first Swab semester with a bang for his two roommates I Brandfass had one re-cxam and Shaw had two). A natural for Ijoats and the sea makes him an excellent man to have around when it comes to the watery side of Academy life. Speaking of boats, it has been rumored that he once stood by for the bull-horn on the EAGLE. Larry divides his time without the Ijarred walls between eating and members of the opposite sex. Already mentioned is his prowess in the field of feeding, hut his operations in the greener fields are definitely on the big time. There is a certain something, which some have and some haven ' t, and our boy is loaded with it.

The first is Florida. He got sand in his shoes at an early age, and from that time on was firm in his decision that Florida is heaven, and shoes are the invention of some ' " damn- yankee. " His second love is sailing. If he could eat boats he probably would, for hunger seems to be his only want that they cannot satisfy. He talks of them during the day and dreams of them at night. And almost any restricted week- end will find him at Jacob ' s Rock rigging spinnakers on twelve-foot dinghies in an effort to make them plane. He claims that he is strictly a " cruisin ' man " and has very definite ideas for the ideal boat. The volume of pictures of " ideal women " that grace his wallet has led some to believe that his claim to red- mikedom isn ' t quite true. He has a very loud and rather consistent bark, but he rarely sinks his teeth in far enough to hurt.

Because of his friendly attitude, Nick has become the envy of the rest of the cadets with his phenomenal " grease " at the College Diner and Skrigans. Is perpetually in love — though he seldom knows with whom. Nick ' s love has been shared by more women than most of us know. Always trying to dodge the hordes that besiege him. In Cheboygan, his only escape was to exchange dances with Jones. While the girls weren ' t paying attention to Nick ' s pranks, he and Jack danced away together until out of range. Among his lighter moments at a serious time, Nick organized his watch section into a fine dancing chorus — on the bridge of the " Mackinaw.

With him he brought a love for the out-of-doors; and often as not on a weekend liberty, one would find him off to the surrounding hills to rough it overnight. Number one man in the scrounge club, he provided an un- ending variety of deeds to confound a startled wife. Herbie ' s unquenchable thirst for coffee, at all times, in any degree of strength, was a thing of wonder to all hands; and his love for steak led him to be the owner of that famous line from the delinquency book — " Frying steak in locker during study hour. " Each fall and winter one could find him lending his efforts to the Academy in the field of athletic endeavor; but, one season at the docks proved to be enough to shunt him to the radiator club each spring. Famous throughout the Corps for the Johnson system of rating the College, he always managed to tuni up at each dance with a different cpieen.

" PIRATE ONESY, " " The Pirate, " The Irishman, or what have you, is a product of California ' s Sacramento Valley. Rumors have it that he ' s the Eastern Agent for the California Chamber of Commerce. He came to our little institution straight out of the Army Air Corps, and two years later ( ' 471 our hoy, Jones, sprouted Piper Cub wings. It wasn ' t long after he got the urge to fly that he became an " Ace " — five landings he could walk away from. Now his ambition is to stage a dog fight with Arne Soreng. In the California tradition, Jonesy is adept with a tennis racket and baseball. The renowned Jones-Timbe contests (another name for a long-running verbal battle as to whether the ball was hit on or off the court and who would never be able to touch whose serve) led to the exchange of many desserts. Jack is one of the leading contenders for a trophy for the cadet accumulating the most sack time between entering and graduating from C.G.A. Though you might think this would be reflected in Jonesy ' s academic or social life, it isn ' t. During first class year most of his liberty found him with " Confucius " — an internal combustion vehicle with brains.

This generous attitude on his part has caused quite a few uneasy moments — perhaps the out- standing example of same concerns the time our roving Casanova turned up with three ( Count ' em. three I dates for a formal. In spite of this seemingly unsurmountable obstacle to social suavity. Our Hero emerged unscathed from a tense situation. Harry believes in maximum results, so long as the results aren ' t over 66 or under 65— this philosophy has lead to tight-rope walking of the highest degree. Perhaps his overpowering interest in sports, and track in par- ticular, has something to do with it; Harry can tell you who won the twenty yard waddle in the dual meet between Abnormal U. and State Penn. in 1912 — in addition, he will also recite, upon request, the running times and the betting odds quoted. In Academy track circles " Hex " is the stellar streak — he has garnered points for the team in the 100, 220, low hurdles, pole vault, broad jump, and high jump.

CHOLLY ty HUCK was not one of the more inactive Forty-Niners, as is olivious from tlie activity list, which by no means covers his extra-curricular activities. He took a crack at football during Swab summer: but said sport cracked back to the tune of a broken collar bone. With football out of the picture, Charlie turned to cross-countrv. where his previous track experience and that old stuljborn char- acter of his made him an important cop in the wheel. That old shoulder stomped into the picture again in the winter of " 48 to snub off Chuck ' s wrestling career and necessitated an operation which dropped him from the track team for that season. Taking over the " Exchange Column " was painful for the readers of Sur ' n Storm: just where he found those alleged jokes will always be a mystery. And how he does love to sleep and snore! Ever notice those shattered windows and cracked bulkheads that prevailed in first north for a long time? Larkin slept there. Studies were no threat exactly; but Chuck always knew when to snub off a bull session and leave a wee bit of time for study. On cruises he really knew his way around the " Duty D " and the " Bucket of Rust.

A constant wit enables him to exist during the week in order to live over the weekends. Knows the college so well that he can get around there in the dark as well as an ordinar) ' person does in broad daylight. He ' s a great guy to go on liberty with, especially if you want to learn some new songs. Poet laureate of the class, poems have been an outlet for his few bitter moments. From his huge store of original ideas he originated the ceremony of dunking class rings in beer instead of the water of the seven seas. Dave misses Buffalo during the winter, saying that it hardly snows in New London! Although the youngest meniljer of the class, he ' s a member in good standing of the Order of the Yellow Dog. He developed a knack for putting on an innocent facial expression under the most adverse con- ditions, especially when the instructor is wondering who made that last remark. In Virginia Beach, Dave decided that the South should be introduced to the Irish Jig. Some kind force kept him from the spot where he had decided to dance it, however.

However, no positive proof of these conjectures has ever been offered, and the fact remains that Rick has the mo- notonest monotone you ever will hear. Rick took a three-year lease on the right-hand, red, leather-covered chair in the rec room, and ever since he broke the bonds of Swabdom, his 6 ' 3 " frame was a fixture in said chair between 0730 and 0745 when he consumed his first cigarette of the day.

An ex-member of the Class of " 47, his distaste for mental labor led to a sojourn as Seaman 1 C with the shallow water boys. He prefers philosophical pursuits — especially as regards physical exercise. His athletic career consisted of, " I was out for tennis once, but they cut me. " Hardly a red mike, he ascribes to the old C. G. motto, " You gotta go out — . " His social life is erratic, consisting mainly of thinking about a date for the fomials. and finally going stag. In the spring of the year, however, his fancy lightly turns, and he brushes up on his quotes from Omar Khayyam and Browning. His hobbies: eat, which he does considerable of: sleep, likewise; and liberty, whenever pos- sible. A true wit, for all his quiet manner, his good humor is seldom marred, except when his corns trouble him.

And it may be truly said that he ' s made remarkable progress in that field. Started out as a red mike, then took to play- ing the field, and finally progressed to the O. A. O. status. Present preoccupa- tion is trying to stay on that status. Always able to hold up his end of an argu- ment, Russ developed the art in those nightly bull sessions.

Chuck has never taken the fair sex quite as seriously as he does other things, and this has probably saved him much grief. He ' s never been known to show up at a formal " ' sacked, " though. If it ' s scuttlebutt you want to spread, here ' s the man to bring it to — Chuck has a reputation for being just a wee-bit gullible.

Navy commis- sioned its first submarine, the Holland, built by the Electric Boat Company. She was an experi- ment, regarded by many as of doubtful value. Since those pioneering days, EBCo has built hun- dreds of subniersibles for the Navy. During this period the Navy ' s submarine service has dra- nnilically demonstrated its effectiveness in both defensive and offensive naval warfare. Perhaps llie greatest strides in submarine efficiency were made during World War II, when with only 1.6% of the Navy ' s total personnel, U. S. subs accounted for 52% of all Jap ships sunk by any means, in- cluding aircraft. Today many naval planners regard the submarine as the capital warship of the future. Here at EBCo we are working in conjunction with the Navy to develop undersea craft of unmatched speed, safety and fighting power. Our country must keep pace to keep the peace. i:i. i:t TKI4 HO AT tOMI»Ai V GROTON, CONNECTICUT New York City Office: EAST BOSTON 7 -2907 EAST BOSTON 7-0512- lidays -7-4476-M DELECO CORP.

In that time it has processed well over 1.000,000 sealskins, and in so doing has gained unsurpassed skill and proficiency in the handling of this fur. As a result, over four-fifths of the world ' s supply of pnuine sealskins are now entrusted to the fouke fur company for processing. And today, wherever furs are bought, sold, or worn, the name fouke is acknowledged as identifying the finest-processed f;enuine sealskins available. FOUKE-processed skins so obviously excel in suppleness, perfection of finish, beauty of color, and quality, that the market always rates them tops in intrinsic value, salability, consumer appeal. The FOUKE FUR COMPANY is privileged to serve as Agent for the processing and sale of Fur Sealskins for the U.S. Government, the Canadian Government, the Government of the Union of South Africa, and private shippers.

You have one important course that you must master. It is not navigation or engineering. It is a course . that you study every day of your schooling, but for which you are given no marks at the end of the school year. " Teamwork " is probably your most important subject. Like a great football team, the crew of a ship is dependent on their team mates. In football the backs must have utmost confidence in the line. Like- wise on a ship each department must have the utmost confidence in the other. Remember, you are playing for keeps. There is no coach sitting on the sideline ready to send in re- placements in a pinch with fresh instructions or to take you out for a rest and a pep talk. lou must carry on with the team who is depending on you the same as you are depending on them, and the success of the venture is dependent on this teamwork. les, " teamwork " j important Manager, Marine Department OA STEAMSHIP COMPANY, INC. 17 Battery Place, New York 4, N.Y.
