Mess Committee, Squad Lead- Platoon Commander Few people realize that Danny Kaye owes most of his fame to his imitation of George ' s rendition of " Dinah. " Though we have all heard it many times, any gathering will find us calling George once again to come forth with this spirited slavic ballad. A true son of the Bronx, he is a rabid Yankee fan (they have won two pennants since he left). This man of unusual ability is Vice- President, Secretary, and Treasurer of the world ' s most exclu- sive club. The Cosmos, founded by him and his shadow, " Short Stuff " Manning, while in London in 1948. " Jeep " brought his heart with him to New London and here it has remained. Always a lover of the sea, any cruise will find George leisurely leaning over that lee rail counting the waves and watching the little white caps. 19 " Alastair Leblade " — as legacy from the ' 49ers, cops the award for the most improvement in six years. He has often been seen pounding passing grades into the addled brains of the academi- cally confused, and often heard spielling classic statements in a bandsaw voice. He is an amateur birdman extraordinary and a frustrated P-51 pilot. The Blade, two edged threat on the mats, has gashed and scarred many an opponent who dared tangle with his sharp profile. His leave time is divided between com- peting with Rip Van Winkle for the most sack time, and Eddie Arcaro for the best horse-back riding. Who ever heard of a night in Pigalle spent in hangar flying with an RAF officer? If you hear, " Sure I ' m slashing; at least I admit it, " watch out; it ' s the razor on legs.. f AKRON, OHIO John R. Buchtul High School Kent State University Cross Country, Wrestling, Choir and Glee Club, Special Drill Platoon. Pla- toon Guide 4 ¥ ir 17 L . - r : HayMnantl Charles Bassett Jr. A firm believer in the old adage, " In obscurity lies security, " Ray has been recognized as one of the quiet and more reserved mem- bers of our class. He is also recognized as one of the more talented members of Fifty-one, for Ray has become the distin- guished artist of the Dance Committee and all of the various cadet publications. The cartoons in this book illustrate quite well not only his fine work, but also his keen sense of humour. And who could ever forget the " 400 " club posters back in ' 48! Ran- some (his pen name) is also a musician of sorts, to those who like harmonica and guitar. He relishes fresh fruit and more than once has been bounced for lumpy laundry-bag. Though he lays no claim to being a lover, he has been seen with some very nice bundles of pulchritude. With his level, easy going nature and sense of humour, Ray should be in for smooth sailing. BLOOMFIELD, NEW JERSEY Bloomfield High School Dance Committee, Surf N ' Storm, Tide flips. Platoon Petty OHicer JTITT 18 GREENWICH, CONN. ■ Greenwich High School ew Haven State Teacher ' s College Dance Committee, Track Manager, Squad Leader 2, Company Executive Ofiicer ' 4 V A native son of Connecticut, Hank came to the academy after a year at New Haven State Teachers College. Since his arrival, he has been giving the Dance Committee the benefit of his ideas and energy. Hank has been Fig ' s right hand man for the past two seasons with the track team, running the show all the way. He seems to like the summer cruises as he has taken more than the usual number as a cadet. However, wherever he goes he seems to attract the female element. Then he plays everything " K.G.I. " Studying and Hank are definitely not synonymous, and for him there is only one way to spend liberty . . . outside the gates. Never completely dry, always happy, and full of gay repartee. Hank will certainly do well in any environment. Metury Herhew t Belt " r " % QUINCY, MASS. Quincy High School Cheeileading. Baseball Manager, Swimming, Tide flips. Class Boat Crew, Monogram Club, Publicity Comm., Sguad Leader 2, Company Executive Officer Take six feet of kinetic energy, sheepish grin, and constant wilhngness to help out, top it with a vermilion thatch, and you have New England ' s own Bill Bleakley. In his wake of activities and accomplishments you can find almost everything from soup to nuts. Cheerleading ( Wilfieee!!! ) varsity swimming, manag- ing the baseball team, taking the pictures you see in this book . . . these just mention a few. " The Bleak " always does OK with the books, too, and many ' s the time he has been seen tutoring some of us more unfortunates. And the best part of it is that success doesn ' t phase him a bit. He ' s still the same old easy- going, hard-working, friend-in-need fellow that everybody likes. Wilfred Robert Bleakley, Jr. t C Frank JtuphiMol Buess€Bler From out of the Northwoods of Minnesota one warm July day, came Frannie to make his mark in the world of sea-faring men. Barring the fact that Frank comes from a densely populated area, hometown population of thirteen, including dogs and stock, he seemed to have led a quiet normal life. As we got to know him however, with his ever-present stock of timely and poignant witticisms and classic descriptions, we began to realize that here was no ordinary man. In spite of radiator club lean- ings, Frank has found time to become senior baseball manager (from chasing kids who were stealing foul balls to pocketing foul balls himself in only four years! ). An imperturbable cuss, nothing phases him, and we will long remember the good nature he displayed every time we ribbed him for being the most typical hayseed east of the Mississippi. ' j , f HlSm " HiLLMAN, MINN. Onamia High School Baseball Manager, Classboai Crew, Platoon Commander 21 UTri _ji " r Dottald Preston Courtsat Dippy exhibits all of the tendencies of business tycoon, for his ability to forage methods for a trip to the other end of Long Island Sound would place even the shrewd into the senseless- ness of naivity. His byword was, " Home, or bilge in the attempt. " This Connecticut lark, as mainstay of the choir and glee clubs and a staunch tenor, can pour on enough expression to put the rest of the club into sidesplitting laughter. A near miss in electro- physics jolted Dippy into using all his sound thinking and re- serve to prove them wrong and it resulted in high grades during the rest of his cadet training. It was just such drive that made him such a fine long distance swimmer on the newly started swimming team, when he was cajoled away from the sailing team, being at the time, an ace in that sport. From submariner to the intercollegiate level is quite a mark of progress for any man. BRANFORD, CONNECTICUT Branford High School Swimming, Choir and Glee Club, Surf N ' Storm, Boxing, Sailing, Pla- toon Petty Officer 22 ir PARIS, KENTUCKY Prrrig High School Boxing, Track, Tide Rips, Publicity Comm., Catholic Chapel Comm., Pla- toon Commander i Don ' t let that shy look mislead you because when it comes to the " Fightin ' Irish " Pinky is right in there. A real sportsman and somewhat of a basketball addict himself, George is never at a oss for the latest hot word on the WILDCATS. Being the loyal son that he is, it ' s a good bet that he has a can of Kentucky soil somewhere in his possession. So far he has successfully shielded it from the view of alien eyes. Swab year George was as jumpy as a caged squirrel, but the situation has since changed — now - we ' re all jumpy. Evidently that had something to do with his dropping Miss G. (the mechanized one) near the end of second class year. Since then it seems he ' s found another Miss G. While in the Land of Tulips during the cruise George found out that there was at least one good thing that did not come from Ken- tucky. In fact he is one of the first to admit that Herr Heinniken markets an excellent product. Gearge Thatnas Dayle Probably the most relaxed, unperturbed individual to tote leath- er on the CG gridiron, Russ never saw fit to change his poker face, direct speech, or wandering mind. He may have climbed a few trees in his time, but he was never endangered by the academic meataxe. Never one to let the other sex get on his nerves, this man ' s man sure stirred up theirs. When a job was to be done, Russ accomplished it with solidness and drive, re- maining always independent and self-contained. Though still in diapers as a new swab, maturity in experience and outlook was not lacking in Russ. His sinister looking left eye and Dead End Kid expression fool no one who know what an easy going and sincere guy " one-eye " is. Itussell HtBralil Ferrier « r. Jahwu MiaBvtBrd Faumier Here is a guy who would rather diddle with mechanisms than date Betty Grable. With more inventions to his credit than Eli Whitney (witness his eight tumbler burgle-proof cash box) this Red Mike amazes everybody with his apparent disinterest for the fair sex. Recognized as something of a loan shark, it is rumored that he has more money than the Treasury Department. " Happy Jack " has given generously of his time to the Dance Committee, and every formal is a fine product of his efforts. In the world of sports he ventured away from the radiator long enough to pound the leather for one season and trot with the " Hill and Vale " boys for a couple more. Jack is a confessed career man; we all wonder how long he will be a confessed bachelor. I POLAND, OHIO Poland High School Cross Country, Boxing, Drill Platoon, Dance Committee, Chairman. Tide Rips, Battalion Petty Officer kv 25 Hl Ted JLane GaiBnaBvay It is said that good things come in small packages and that is certainly true of Ted. A little guy (almost had to stand on tiptoe to make the required 5 4 " ), he packs a big load of fun and friendliness. A class gathering at the " club " will nearly always find him in the quorum. He is a true disciple of Bacchus and strongly believes that the sailing team should have several hours of intense training before every meet. Although he has done well for himself, he would be one of the last to rate the name " cutter " . Any hour of the day or night finds him ready for a discussion of the finer things of life or a hot hand of bridge. T. Lane has a good head on his shoulders and a way of getting along with people where it counts. SILVER SPRING, MD. Bullis School Sailing, Squad Leader 2, Platoon Petty Officer M 26 SPRINGFIELD, MASS. Technical High School Sailing, Drill Platoon, Mess Comm., Guidon Bearer .. Bob, the fellow with the friendly, almost angelic smile and easy- going air of nonchalance will long be remembered as the or- ganizer of class gatherings at the poor man ' s Latin quarter. Academics were a breeze for Bob, though he did sweat out a few finals. Many were the study hours he spent closeted in his locker with his portable listening to the dulcet tones of one Evelyn Knight. On more than one occasion the old adage, " You can ' t beat the system " , was challenged by Springfield ' s finest. An ardent baseball fan he became antisocial when Boston suf- fered a defeat and a losing streak was catastrophic. Bob, an all around athlete, confined his efforts to P.E. classes where his lay- up shot proved a decided asset to any team. Thus equipped with the ability to keep himself happy and with an interest in other people, this blithe spirit ventures out into the cruel world on the voyage of his career. Rahert Brauyn Grawut ? ' V Grub — at first glance rather quiet, ' almost shy, seeming to pos sess the naivete of a freshman in the old fashioned boarding school. But on better acquaintance one finds real substance in the form of a well practiced wit, an easy conversationalist and an old hand at any social function. A touch of Oxford, a dash of Yale, a pinch of Dartmouth, and a seasoning of Harvard couldn ' t do any better, and to think that little old Coast Guard did it alone. A real Don Juan, always finding dates for the dateless and still ending up with more than enough for himself. Never let studying interfere with bull sessions and yet always academi- cally high when the final tallies came out. To top it off. Grub- ber ' s main ambition in life — to be a song and dance man. NEW LONDON, CONN. Andover Academy , , Sailing, Boxing Manager ' , Class Treasurer 1, Platoon Commander Gr€Bh€Bwn H€bII Mticharel Oliver Miuughey Never before in the history of man has a human being been so magnificently endowed above the neck. " The head " (7 and Vs, if you please) hails from Ridgewood and came to C. G. A. straight from Brooklyn Tech. He is notorious as a sea lawyer and is accredited with an oral victor y over Peevy. Naturally vested with an infectious laugh that seems to originate in that vast cerebral cavity, Dick has been known to get " mixed up " with women. " Rock " is a swimmer of wide renown (as a swab he led " B " Company to a crucial victory); he has even learned to run in the past few years. His belief in hard work, general objectivity, and natural self-confidence, plus an unlimited mental stowage space, will lead him to success. " BROOKLYN, NEW YORK Brooklyn Technical High School Glee Club, Small Group. Football Track, Swimming, Captain, Platoon Commander W J y m 29 i " ■9 «■» Jaseph Paul ilratha Joe came to us from the state of New Jersey (the part without swamps to hear him tell it). A red mike during his swab year, he considered women only as a necessary part of the cadet outfit for formals. The years have seen a change and he now reports to a local lass regularly. Although an eager student at first, Joe fell into bad company and got into the habit of indulg- ing in nightly bull sessions. Nevertheless he has managed to stay with the middle crowd. A firm believer in class rates, Joe made the mistake of assuming that second classmen don ' t get restricted (he soon found otherwise). Being quiet and easy-going except for an occasional blowing off of steam, Joe will easily fit into any shipboard scheme. HIGHTSTOWN, N. J. Allentown High School Company Guidon 30 LAWRENCE, MASi Lawrence High School Football, Wrestling, Boxing, Running Light, Squad Leader 2, Platoon Com- mandei i Known to all as " Jake " , our classmate with the rapidly receding j hairline is one of the few determined Western readers remain- ing in ' 51. A natural at spinning yarns, he has been the center of conjecture in many ' s the bull session. His " I ' m in the shower all by myself " singing may be his only claim to talent, but he ■ seems so happy that no one ever stops him. One weekend per .month he puts aside his horse operas to rush down town to meet " that certain party " from down Boston way. Then the life of recluse satisfies him the rest of the time. " A letter a day keeps frustration away " seems to be his motto. With that certain trust- worthy maturity and a good sense of humor, Jake makes every- body a close friend. Lean€Brd Jucahs I CHEEKTOWAGA, N. Y. Neumann Catholic High School y Sailing, Patoon Petty Officer Beedub has become famous or notorious, as the case may be, in a number of respects in his four years at the academy. Always a charter member of the leopard club, Beedub had an affinity for spots despite his theory of calculated risks. His numerous tangles with the General Studies Department occasionally ended with Byron holding his own. With study time devoted to build- ing models, reading magazines, listening to his radio, or in general activities not even remotely related to academics, Byron, nevertheless, achieved an impressive ratio of grades to work. Somewhat a red mike, he has been known to date occasionally. But more often than not, he pulls hberty with the boys. With his dry but appreciated sense of humor and his easy going nature, Byron sets out to make his almost effortless mark in the world. Byran fVaver Jardan ■-SIL 6 Murray KtBctset Look into those innocent blue eyes and the sins of the world vanish. For discussion and information on topics from Kenton to Kant, from Freud to foolin ' around, from beers to beauties, " De Kitz " is your man. His blase approach to life and love make this scion of Maryland ' s finest beloved by untold hoards of ad- mirers, — he is also well liked. Graceful and poised, mind and body tuned like a fine watch, he stands proud and resolute on the threshold of his CG career — just keep it off the Bucket. Kid Kaetz is also an athlete, surpassing all in baseball, but doing well at everything. He is often heard commenting upon arising, " Ah me, another day in which to excel! " If you don ' t believe this, remember the ants. KNOXVILLE, MARYLAND Brunswick High School Johns Hopkins University U. S. Coast Guard ■ ' , t Baseball Captain, Monogram, Surf N ' Storm, Platoon Petty Ofiicer 33 R Ge€ rge JfahwB Kashuha " Clean from Pittsburgh " comes one of the old men of the class known to all as Geejay. Possessing the inherent good natured- ness of a she-bear coming out of hibernation, Geejay, with his growls and gripes (particularly concerning his receding hair- line), became an institution among the ' 51ers. Then it happened. Along came Cupid (a la blind date), and lion to lamb was a matter of seconds. A shining example of " the bigger they come the harder they fall " , he spends all waking hours on liberty or in the phone booth getting the word. But in spite of his big weakness, George has found time for varsity wrestling and top- notch grades, as well as for passing out that homespun philos- ophy which makes him a welcome additio n to any and every group. PITTSBURGH, PENNA. Homstead High School Football, Wrestling, Classic Record Club, Platoon Petty OHicer 34 { QUINCY, MASS. Sacred Heart High School Sailing, DriU Platoon, Tide Rips. Color Guard Sf Moose: keen mind, sensitive nature, and a wit that could find its expression only through his remarkable versatility in the Eng- lish language. His first love is airplanes ... an expensive mis- tress, he claims. The rangy figure lurking down the corridor with a game of chance in hand is likely to be C.H.E.K. with an hour ' s flying time in mind. Among his athletic achievements he has to his credit four years of the most blood curdling sport in the world — field house basketball. His hearty laugh (his bene- diction to a good joke ) is as enjoyable as the humor itself. Of his more serious nature, he ' s a deep thinker, a student of human nature, and one of those rare people who is honest with him- self as well as others. Clewnewut II. E. Keratts Jr. T SCOTTVILLE, MICHIGAN Scottville High School , . ., Class Vice-Persident 50-51, Squac Leader 2, Battalion Executive Otiicei Many moons ago Funk was lured out of the North Woods by the promise of a pair of shoes. He soon parlayed the shoes into, four years of happy academic existence. Never a bookworm. his calm, logical approach and analytical mind kept him high on the precedence list. He possesses a sense of humor all his own . . . many a grim moment has been averted by his panto- mimes. John neatly divides his women into geographical units. Furtherm ore, their quality doesn ' t suffer because of their quan- tity. And proof of his executive ability lies in his system of rota- tion by which no two ever appear on the same weekend. Com- pletely disgusted with New London winters, he hopes to soak out their memory in the sunshine of San Juan. Funk sees himself destined to be a crusty old officer of the line, but under pressure will admit a secret urge to fly. Jfahn I auis Klenh Jaseph Kwuapp Knapper: our fair-haired boy from Jersey. Just head for his sack and you ' ll never have any trouble finding him. Between sleep- ing, bull sessions, and keeping up with the periodicals, he has never been in a position to devote much time to his studies. Not what you ' d call an academic star, Dick was strictly a red-hot formula man content with the old Zip Zip. One of Nitchman ' s following for three years, he worked hard for his seat at the Monogram Club Banquet. On the social side, KaNap is noted for the rigid specifications he requires his women to meet. Fri- day night phone calls sometimes net him a queen and the stock- holders of the Bell Telephone Company a rather tidy dividend. At parties he is known to be the only man to prefer his pizza with coke. PASSAIC, NEW JERSEYl Passaic High School Football, Class Vice President 3, Class AAA Representative 2, Squad Leader 2, Platoon Commander 37 M mmmi Burton JVaywne Kwuiseley Who carried the mail to Bloody Gulch, was it the mail orderly, Burt? From swab year on, our fair-haired boy has amazed us with the store of wisdom and experience behind that boyish countenance. Even when most of us were toting high school books, the " Chief " was tearing through the electronics course at Groton. As a handy man and production foreman of the dance committee his hand has helped the success of many a formal. Women are Burt ' s silent subject, but despite what he says or doesn ' t say, a young lady at the college seems to have things well in hand. On the athletic side he is working for the Monogram club the hard way by collecting mat burns with the grunt and groaners. Having inherited a headfull of kinetic grey matter and an everlasting friendly manner, the future of our " Kniseley sir, Pennsyltucky sir, " kid is assured. GROVE CITY, PENNA.

His mod- ern miracle, getting his six and a half axe-handles and size fourteen gunboats (oops, shoes) into a twelve foot dinghy, has never ceased to amaze us. Dick, however, is a fine sailor, and although he has given Hutch and the boys many a bad moment, he still manages to come across that line with a lot of points for old C.G.A. And he has become such an authority on seaman- ship that we all suspect that his clandestine ambition may be to rewrite Knight ' s to his own satisfaction. Lace, a great believer in a minimum of study and a maximum of original thinking, has been one of the class regulars ever since his Transom Orderly days. nichard I acy Genuine product of the West, lover of the great outdoors, hail and hardy Juggy Larson had a ready smile and agreeable na- ture that were responsible for a good start and a better finish. Besides imitating a gazelle every spring and fall, this disciple of Alvin York spent many winter afternoons boning up for bigger hunting by boring out pinwheels. Few people have observed his " Hitting the books, " but the results of " demonstrations of knowledge " always left him right up there. He is a confessed student of contemporary literature, and an ardent lover of clas- sical music. Gourmet of food served with plenty of atmosphere, Juggy found his paradise in Europe. London . . .

I awnhert Jahn IjursawB itiBytnand Peter Litis It ' s not a three-ring circus . . . it ' s Ray Litts! Our boy entered the academy as a fun-loving, wisecracking Long Island beachcomb- er, and in these past four years he hasn ' t lost a bit of his " let ' s have a good time " manner. Undefeated in inter-company wrest- ling and the backbone of the Rinky Dinks football team, Ray is a good man to have on your side in any athletic contest. He doesn ' t seem to know his own strength. As proof, remember when he K.O ' d one of the varsity boxers in a friendly wrestling match. Although he was the first member of ' 51 to receive a " Dear John " , Waymond is seldom seen without a better half. His motto is " treat ' em rough " but the girls seem to like it. With Ray around, life is just a bowl of cherries, and he will be a wel- come addition to the wardroom. MOUND, MINNESOTA Baldwin High School Football, Wzestling, Tide Rips. Com- pany Guidon 41 Jaseph Ijausan t f . " Trigger " Louzon, the ace and mainstay of the academy pistol team, entered CGA with a very salty manner (developed, no doubt, on the beaches of Long Island), and a complete line of practical jokes. Besides making life miserable for his ever-loving wife, Joe participated in several glamorous academy activities. In addition to his outstanding performance on the pistol range, " the pen is mightier than the sword " Louzon authored the (de)famed Shaft Alley, as anyone who has ever inadvertently committed a faux pas in secret, and read about it in SnS the fol- lowing month, can tell you. On the academic side, Joe has done most of his shining along linguistic lines, (particularly Pidgin- Spanish on the summer cruises). While proclaiming to be a Red Mike, he nevertheless was one of the first in the class to start dealing in diamonds. WEST BABYLON, N. Y.

" Well you can bet your bottom dollar that wheri Phil takes them out they ' re worth talk- ing about. Always quite a man with the ladies, Phil has spent the last four years leaving a wide swath of broken hearts from Freeman House to North Cottage. However, he stanchly denies any connection whatsoever with the " Philsey Love " stories. De- spite his activities off the reservation he has managed to stay well up in the class academically and take part in both the swimming and sailing teams. Being born, raised, and sent out into the world from the fair state of Jersey, he is quick to tell you of the immeasurable merits of said area ( on the Q.T. however, he might break down and admit that California weather has its advantages).

His eternal cheerfulness and flamboyant personality have endeared him to us, although at times, we have been left breathless by his enthusiasm. Never bothered by details, Dick has shouldered responsibilities in a variety of tasks. (As chief " soda jerk " , he has helped to cheer many a restricted weekend.) His meticulous care and jovial spirit aided him to answer our many whims and still come up with a class ring of which we are proud. Not a red mike by any stretch of the imagination, Dick continually shows up with queens (from the college as well as town) ... it must be his curly hair that gets them. GELES, CALIF.

" " Na, you know I leave that stuff alone! " Keeping clear of women takes up most of Mul- dooney ' s efforts, but he still finds time to be a guy ' s best friend. " The Doctor " takes to heart the ailments of his buddies, rubbing sore backs and more often doling out free advice and nostalgic warnings to the class roustabouts. Truly " the life of the party " , George became a tradition with his famous rendition of the Huckle Buck. Known as a connoisseur of malt beverages, he often loses his dim view of life when he gazes into a glass of that beloved brew. But in spite of his age, George trims the ears off us younger fellows when it comes to sports, especially his first love, bucketball. His secret of success: the bachelor ' s life, free from the dissipating influences of womanhood. DU BOIS, PENNSYLVANIA St. Catherine High School Platoon Petty Officer 46 r WATERTOWN, MASS. Watertown High School Coast Guard Wrestling, Class Treasurer 2, Glee Club, Tide Rips, Running Light, Mon- ogram Club, Platoon Commander J So much of Ireland has this gnomie in him that he has long been suspected to have sprung from the leprechawns. Th e strain comes out in his beloved bull sessions, when the less he knows about something the more he will argue. In particular is Al ' s constant attempt to convince " Jeep " that the Bosox are the only- real ball players worth supporting. Never a Conn College fan, " Apee " has spent the years importing his female companions from surrounding New England. Winter months have found him collecting mat burns in an effort to keep in shape for the respon- sible position of president of the Cosmo Club.

Tr Charles Edgar Martin •s 1 Jahn Gassa JMariines Ever on the alert for some new fact about the service, John has catalogued, in his mind, more information on the subject than any other man in ' 51. This has been no random endeavor for, without a doubt, each item will be put to valuable use in his 30 years (at least) of service. John is punctilious in his work and in the demands he makes of his subordinates. The staid influ- ence of PROPER BOSTON, where John has lived for some time, may be the reason. But whatever the reason, his ardent desire to be a good Coast Guardsman will certainly became fact.

' Kerwnit Ranald Meade Activity, enthusiasm, and jobs done, complete with a grin a mile wide, and commands such as " Forward Hoop " characterize this grand little guy who can always laugh. Kermit is one of the " brains " of the class, both academically and businesswise, but he is envied chiefly for his refreshing ideas on how to live and have fun. About the only thing that can slow this bundle of energy to a fast trot is — alas — the fruit of the vine. Long will he be remembered for such things as averaging three dates per day, being an instructor in Marine Corps psychology, (complete with bayonets), setting the First District straight on the cadet procurement program, and possessing a soundless laugh so violent as to approach jolting him apart. Kermit ' s ship will certainly be one totally devoid of long faces and completely occupied with tremendous operations. NEW YORK, NEW YORK Stuyvesant High School Cornell University U. S.

During the past four years he has established as his trademark a big, broad smile and a rather fiery temper. Often misunderstood, Phil has a talent for choosing his friends carefully; but he ' s always got a helping hand for everyone. On the social side, his first couple of years as one of the herd found him bounding around be- tween the girls at the college and his native Waukegan. Each return from leave or cruise would find him overboard for a new one. However, out of sight is out of mind, and soon he would be back spending half his money in the phone booth and the other half on the results of his efforts. Then came the fateful day and the fateful nickel and that ' s all, brother. Phillip Blaine Maberg NORTH FRANKLIN, CONN. Windham High School :i . University of Connecticut fw.

Norm (I ' m always in a storm) Morrill has astounded us by continually doing everything at the last minute. " Two minutes to go sir, " " Shucks, I can still shine my shoes, dust the room, empty the bucket, brush my blues, make out my laundry before the next for " FORMATION SIR, " " What am I saying? " Norm never did get far from home. He hails from North Franklin where he made fame by making a perfect flying block only to hit his own high school teammate and lose the game. He decided on the Radiator Club when he came here. Always good for a laugh with his pantomime, the " ape man " act has led to many humor- ous and embarrassing moments. Ever displaying the most ami- able of personalities the host of friends that Norm has acquired spreads far and wide. JVarman Stenvart 3€arrill Rahert A wihur Mass This lank towering hulk of dignity, finesse, and infectious good humor came to us with a seagoing background (Station Bird- dog) and an eloguent debate on the merits of fogbound Frisco. The ricky ticky boon tick of Latin American music, his inimitable opinions concerning " The System " and New London weather, and a deep appreciation of cocktail lounges without television hold Moss ' attention much more effectively than engineering. Mose is probably the most versatile bullslinger in the class and an adroit comedian with a hilarious routine for every occasion, an always empty billfold, and a horrendous dislike for sticky movie scenes. His idea of living is to find a place where the sun is hot, girls are women, and people will quit treating him like a sea scout.

However, with the sewing on of the second class stripes, the inevitable happened and we now have a full-fledged operator on our hands.

His fast talk and ready humor have not only made him a popular classmate, but have also served him well with the promenade of young ladies who have, at one time or another, stolen his heart. His weekdays are taken up with dime novels and playing nursemaid to the Smokeless Powder Boys (the word is that several fine marks- men have developed under the watchful eye of " Coach " Nuzum ). And since he feels that an essential part of taking a bath is bursting into song, his pseudo-baritone voice is the cen- ter of many a showerroom recital. A magnetic attraction for the comfort of his bunk, and a requisite weekly pilgrimage to the club round out Sid ' s claim to fame. JahtB Sidney JVusum " Fatty " himself: the original on-the-go be-bop kid. Sometimes known as " Twinkletoes " , he dazzled all of Europe with his dance floor routine ... he was particularly appreciated in the Hague. An ardent songster, he bursts forth at the least provoca- tion, and his repertoire is the envy of all music-lovers. John is a strong advocate of " stayin ' loose " , especially in basketball and baseball, and he believes in lots of " GeeWah " to keep the team moving. A Don Juan worthy of the name, his social life sparkles with feminine jewels. A short description would include an in- fectious laugh, debonair diplomacy, fun-loving disposition, and just a touch of the Rah-Rah Boy. John likes not only wine, women, and song, but also life itself, and he has a talent for knowing how to live it. Jahwu Stephen PhilHps SehtBstiawu J seph M ias Here ' s Pope: CGA ' s candidate for the Warwick Town Council. A gridiron stalwart from away back, " Captain " Pias makes his force felt off the field as well. Strictly a ladies ' man (remember the weekend he had EIGHT dates to the big game?), Pope can relate tales that would make Don Juan listen. Something of a bettor ' s man, " Joe the Book " will take any bet and give you odds ... of course, he never lets you win, but that ' s the way it goes. A great one for numbers, Pope has everything down to decimal places; for example, his Friendship Precedence List (he ' s currently got about half the class in the anchor slot). His familiarity with the Portagee made him an asset on both ven- tures to the Old Country, and his familiarity with life makes him a goo d gu y, to have around anytime. Mtabert JVeal Pierce Bob came to us after a short hitch in the enhsted ranks, and with his prized blond locks and true southern gentleman ' s man- ner, he soon became one of C.G.A. ' s social lions. A losing fight with mech made him a five-year man, but ' 50 ' s loss was our gain. It was largely through Bob ' s efforts that our third class dinner and dance was such a success, and his work with the choir and octet was invaluable. He has established some sort of record for faithful correspondence since he first met the red-head from E. City. Always ready with a helpful word of advice, he was the steady hand that guided us back to the ship on time. And that is the measure of a true friend. CHARLESTON, W.

Con- sequently he was one of the few men on the batt staffs of the temporary set-ups who didn ' t feel a bit lost when given a sword, pat on the head, and told to " get out on that drillfield and play soldier " . A convivial sort of gent, he will usually be found wherever a segment of ' 51 has congregated, complete with that combination snarl-smile which has become his trademark. The Academy spent four years and umpty thousands dollars to turn out a man who is a seaman, an officer, and a gentleman. Cort made the job easy for them.

Bob can be remembered for his love of good eating and his conse- quent energy as a member of the mess committee. Being a good partner on the pool table and a walking dictionary of popular music made him an oft-sought figure in the recroom. It was with such versatility that Bob entered life via his coming out party this June.

Mercilessly self-critical, he has been known to get car- ried away with sporadic investigations into the fields of psy- chology and philosophy, but this same concern for truth has earned him a sound reputation for fairness and good judgment.

You could al- ways count on him for a sympathetic ear, and when he lapsed into " So you think you got troubles . . . " , you knew your own problems had been banished to insignificance. When he arrived on the Academy scene. Lew was rather foot-loose and fancy- free, with more women than you could count. But one of New London ' s own finally caught up with him and straightened him out in short order. Lew can also be remembered as ' Si ' s prima donna pitcher (once made his wife wax the deck . . .

Through it all, George has been outstandingly friendly and com- patable, and his admirable sense of humor has been appreci- ated by all. Always he has been one to count on for academic assistance, through both capability and patience. A track en- thusiast, each year has found him conditioned for the dashes. In fourth class year, a battered nose cooled his pugilistic inter- ests, though through a series of other ailments we believed him to be secretly working toward a medical degree in sickbay. For a feasible, skirted reason, this year has found George taking his liberty time considerably more seriously.

Barring the hours spent in study, Bob uses his time preparing himself for the vicissitudes of life by meeting them face to face. Learning to enjoy life and all it has to offer has been Bob ' s philosophy and he has carried it out in full. Name anything from wine to women to boats and bridge and Bob will have a skill and a memory. He is known ior spending his leaves in a Bohemian manner, living on cigar- ettes and set-ups, and always returning with a raft of new expe- riences the like of which can be told only by another sailor. Kahert Russell Frederick Paul Schubert Tall, dark and handsome, Freddie learned his lesson after one year at the Academy . . . " they ' re all pigs " . As a confirmed Red Mike he soon turned his eyes from Quail to airplanes, and Water- ford Airport claimed all his liberty for quite a while. Since the flyboy career he has spent most of his spare time fighting the intercompany battles, particularly on the gridiron, and he has plenty of bruises to prove it. When not exploiting his brawn he can be found quietly slashing on the sly, a fact heretofore un- known to all except his roommate and a few full-blooded Indians capable of a stealthy approach to his dim cubical. Whether studying or heaving around in the affairs of the Academy, F.P. does a good job in a quiet manner.

With the return of the swimming team, Gil turned part fish and became leader of the distance men. His prowess in the pool is equalled only by his skill on the dance floor, as many a young lady will testify. A consistently sunny d isposition matched with a great determination to finish anyhing he starts has made Gil an invaluable asset to the class.

Driven by a never satisfied lust for librty (and more lib- erty) to promote public relations with the female element of New London, Al has managed to win out most of the time while his envious classmates remain within the portals due to question- able conduct.

He found Academy life fertile soil for his able mind and easy mid-western humor. He opened up like a rosebud on cruises at the expense of his carefully molded background. Marion plays the part of Madeira linen merchant, connoisseur of fine wines, or old-Deutschlander-in-good-standing with comparative ease. (He took all hands by surprise at the Hague, including one known only as " Ma chere " .) With the direct approach as his trademark and integrity as his religion, Marion has been the bull gear in many class activities.

Strictly continental in manner and mien, the " brown man " has guided many a tourist through the maze of Paris. How the " Eagle " can hope to sail without him is a mystery, for he is a master of seamanship and will tie a knot at the drop of a belaying pin. He has been on the sailing team so long that instead of questioning his eligibility, M.I.T. was anticipating senility. Of late he has been known to date a girl and fly air- planes. He dislikes disorder in any form, but believes in ghosts and the institution of the bull session. The Bos ' un is a generous person and is always prepared to share his vastly superior knowledge of the sea. These qualities have earmarked him for success in his chosen career. Latvrence Am alii White Henry fVilks Jr. Best known as " Bedsores " , Horizontal Henry is believed to have logged more racktime in Academy life and cruises than any ten men with sleeping sickness get in a lifetime. His most frequent remark: " Ohh . . . ahh (yawn) what time is it? " From the time he first spot ted his Dad ' s gold buttons. Hank has yearned for the Academy and sea life. Until he arrived at CGA the bulk of his Coast Guard days was spent around Great Lakes surf stations, resulting in a thorough knowhow of boats and marlinspike sea- manship which stood him in good stead at the Rock and aboard the Bucket of Rust. Far from what you ' d call a red mike, Henry has thus far devoted his life to pleasing all the ladies while still retaining status quo as a lone wolf. In short: amiable, sincere, and cheerful, with that " do-anything-for-a-buddy " attitude.

An unforgettable and ever-helping friend and cruise-mate, his diligence (always ready with a joke or witty saying) will carry him far. By virtue of distinguished ser- vice, he was promoted to the rank of Duke after the First Class cruise. Sam comes out of " fag ' s " clothing each spring to throw the javelin, but old age or competition has started to catch up with him. A continual Sunday occupant of the New London to Philly telephone line, a stanch supporter of graduation mar- riages, and a firm believer that " two can live as cheaply as one " on Ensign ' s pay, Sam has our blessing.

However, certain people reformed him, and from then on he just wasn ' t available during liberty hours. Easy- going in manner and far from the type who wielded a razor during study hour, he was always ready to open a Philosophy Club meeting. Very versatile, he would be hap py with a pipe or cigar if no cigarettes were available.

Those elbows flashing in and out when he walks; the dashing, dignified gentleman at formal dances; or the classy, smooth approach we ' ve seen him use so many times; then the bold, masculine form on the beach and the strut and military form at drill. This doesn ' t even mention the many vari- ous sporting forms he has cultivated, including golfing (his best), tennis and basketball, the discus, and yes, even ping- pong. And hand in hand with form is his famous line (which he has used far and wide). One question . . . when did he find time to develop all this?

Short tall wide and narrow we wandered aimlessly into buildings which seemed much too large each se- cretly feeling that some machine some- where had made an error. Second Class- men were on hand to direct our energies into proper channels — they yelled — we answered — they beckoned — we came with a rush. • Jr ' l Aloft W, V.

THE CRUISE Third Class year actually began as the last line came aboard and we shoved off for Europe. In a lively and interesting way this cruise taught us a great deal. Our European visit did not make us world travelers, but it did leave us enriched with impressions, experiences, and ideas which should help to broaden our understand- ing and perspective. It was an experience new to all of us which generated an eager curiosity to know just how different other countries could be from home and to hear people speak a different language. We antici- pated wonder at how they understood one another but not the fact that they did. We headed for the Azores, and the wind blew steadily against rarely-furled sails. Grey Dots on the Horizon Azores: Population 280,000 t •y ] Two weeks later the islands appeared as small grey dots which later became very green and patched with those tended areas that belie prosperity. And when we stumbled ashore, we soon realized that being a tourist in the Azores is hypocrit- ical at best. The people are very poor and so isolated that they constitute a different world of clay hovels, mongrel dogs, and beautiful churches. We left after three days unconsciously voiding all memories except the luxuriant green and the hot- house pineapples. Campbell at Sea Seasick? Me? Dover Harbor JSB I The next stop was London, and the channel weather was cold and raw, and windy enough to cost the EAGLE a sail or two. Here, at least, there were no lan- guage difiiculties; and we vigorously ex- plored the great grey city which showed us by its scars that there actually had been a war. Picadilly Square was the ral- lying point from which each cadet em- barked in a direction according to his needs and personality — Hyde Park — St. James Park — or some suburban common. Some saw the changing of the Guard, but they never talk about it. From London we made our way south to the Canary Islands, which consist en- tirely of a group of mountains too tall to be contained in the sea. In retrospect the islands seem brown and are somehow as- sociated with camels — the domestic cam- els we had seen — and Arabs who tried to sell us bracelets or cloth or perfume. But we sophisticates were not to be taken in by these swarthy flatterers. A few days later we sailed for Bermuda and home. Bermuda seems only a pleasant flash in the race to get home, and perhaps its flow- ers and bicycles and general " quaint- ness " were wasted on us. Back in New London the Academy band welcomed us 94 I on the dock. The cruise was finished, and we considered it a success. Shipboard work had never been too strenuous to keep us from observing seagoing admin- istration and absorbing something of practical engineering problems. Cadets worked with the enlisted personnel and learned to respect their knowledge and experience. After the cruise and our return to the Academy we plunged into an attempt to grasp a bedrock of engineering in a course spiced with cultural subjects. The press of academics, the shortage of time, and the vigorous Academy routine forced us to choose what to learn and taught us how to study. When we went on leave, we noticed that we no longer shared the same inter- ests with the " guys back home. " Their humor, outlook, and ambitions were no longer the same as ours. We cheerfully concluded that our endeavors were di- rected along a course for more mature growth. It had now become obvious that the Academy was more than a means to a commission and a degree. The habits we were strongly encouraged to form were those that would benefit us most. Personal pride, consideration, social ease, and de- pendability were stressed during that time of life when habits formed are habits re- tained. Our education and training had opened new channels of interest, effort, and development. The Academy offered the chance to improve self. ' — « SECOXD CLASS YEAR " Chow Time " " Widgeons " " Sii, The Guard Is Mustered And All Are Present " . 96 With a brand new miniature giving the Httle finger of the left hand the import- ance of a right arm we embarked on a summer of getting " checked out " . Survey- ing? Yeah, I ' m checked out in that — it ' s a lost art! The machine shop convinced us that there weren ' t many that would make their living that way — might as well stay in the Coast Guard. But for pure, unadult- erated horror there was nothing to equal the course in basic mechanisms — try it sometime on a series of hot afternoons. After having had carefully explained to us the reason for not running wildly back and forth in an airplane while in flight it was felt that we could be trusted to sit in one from New London to Elizabeth City, N.C. The first thing we found at the air II station was that airmen have better chow than the cadets. Having gorged ourselves in honor of this discovery we waddled over to BOQ which was to be our home while at the air station. We soon found that the screens were not in the windows to keep the insects out, but to keep the in- sects from getting the occupants out. The next three weeks were one of the most enjoyable times of our course from C.G.A. It seemed that the Coast Guard has one or two of every kind of plane there is at the air station and we took our turn han- dling the controls of them all. By compari- son with what we were used to, there was more liberty than we could properly use — but we managed to use it. Even the afternoons of practical work (code word for scraping and painting) weren ' t bad. With all there was to know about flying under our belts we took off for the rifle range at Cape May and made the flight 97 without casualty — except for someone ' s laundry which fell out of the plane when the side door came open, bombarding the state of Virginia with torn skivvies. A saltier looking crew you never saw than the one that marched out to the range every morning at six-thirty — from a distance it might have been Terry and the Pirates. As the sun crawled higher in the heavens, Joe Pias ' sun tan grew dark- er, Dick Haughey ' s nose turned redder, and the bullets sprayed wildly around the landscape. In the butts millions of flies sacrificed their lives to the dispute of who could kill the most with one swat. From this — came over a dozen expert riflemen. After a month and a half of pure fun as far as we were concerned we went back to the more sober business of herding the white bird up and down the New England coastline. We found that it hadn ' t taken long to forget that maze of lines, and after some days of directing the swab class with " Well, you heard him. Set the fore topmast staysail! " , we began to learn our way around the vessel. It took quite a mental reverse to keep from grabbing a line everytime there was something to do. Once back at the academy we looked in our laundry bags and were amazed at the shirts we ' d put in there last spring with the idea that they were dirty. Donning these slighted articles we took off on the last fling at weekend liberty before the start of the fall term. Labor Day passed, and then labor be- gan. Brand new JOD ' s began to find out that the squads were made up exclusively of buglers, first classmen, people on no duty, and resignees. Many a pair of eye- 1 1 1: balls were strained while their owners were in charge of evening colors. Indoc- trination — " You guys will have a good deal if you will only heave around and stay on the ball. Things have been good so far but lately it ' s been noticed that they ' re slacking up. Now get on the ball or things will really bust loose. " " March your sections to class. " " Sir, an accurate count has not been taken. " — " Very well, seats. " And so we locked horns with a new course of instruction. While we were still trying to digest the fact that E equaled IR we measured the speed of an electron, passed quizzes on vacuum tubes, and hooked up circuits so complicated that even the instructor was leery of throwing the switch. But, it seems that if you pile enough on top some of it is bound to sink in. Day after day Cdr. Fabik patiently explained that entropy and enthalpy weren ' t something that could be ex- plained, that we could understand. Prof. Reed-Hill continued to wreak havoc on the meter stick in room 248 and, with appre- hension, we learned that the bending stresses were maximum in the middle. Government — " Some of you might be in- terested in this Report of the City Bank oi New York; it contains some very valuable information and I ' m sure you ' ll all want to read it. I have a few copies in my office and you ' re welcome to them. " Engineer- ing lab — " That thing up there is a de- aereator. Now over here — " . . . Winter came to New London as usual; strong men turned pale and wore their overcoats to bed. With it came Christmas leave, but many are of the opinion it ' s small compensation. Mid year exams gave rise to the usual cloud of foreboding and everyone spoke . i ' . fljl . . 99 ' in a whisper for the three weeks after Christmas leave. During exams no one spoke at all. During the deep freeze peri- ods little groups of people could be seen standing around staring dully into each others ' faces. With the hope that springs eternal in the human heart we looked to the new semester with the thought, " Maybe this is the one that will be better " . Probably the most severe jolt to this line of reasoning was Captain Colmar and his black box, and his squirrelcase motors with squirrels! Properties lab — a soul lifting experience consisting of weeks of grinding, polishing, quenching, annealing, and finally throw- ing the specimen out the window and copping someone else ' s experiment. Fluid mechanics. Government, and seamanship took their toll and the bald men of the class grew balder. Through the bleak months of February, March, and April the time seemed to stand still. In April the big rings arrived and many hours of study were devoted to scrutinizing same. The sun began to reach the first platoon of Charlie Company in the quadrangle in the morning, and be- fore we knew it we were in the middle of June week and the frantic race to get the Eagle finished for cruise in time to have a little liberty. The ring hung heavy on our hand and another year of the big contest was over. 100 FIRST CLASS YEAR June ' 50, we were the proud owners of a W horizontal stripe, a ping pong table, and a good deal of self importance. Again it was time for the seabag, dust cover, and our old three-masted friend. Half went Shoving off ... an eye (o port sophisticate and boarded the Campbell, but those with the driving spirit of adven- ture saluted the quarter deck of the Great White Bird, our home for the next five weeks. " The wind seems to have fallen off a bit, Mister, what are you going to do about it? " There were circles and circles — " OF Our ship i -i : P " . . The other halt COURSE you ' ll take star sights tonight. " " What do you mean there isn ' t enough foul weather gear? Why, just yesterday there was . . . . " " Awright you guys, no one leaves this ship till we find them flashlights and whistles. " " Now hear this; no cadet will use the life jackets for pil- lows when sleeping. " The usual rush to complete notebooks — " Who ' s got the ' ($ fresh water diagram " " HOW MANY SIGHTS DID YOU GET? OOOOH! " A good deal of knowledge somehow pene- trated as we constructed sheer legs, trans- ferred fuel, towed, and switched test tanks. Practical seamanship was the watchword on the Eagle — lines, knots, sails, chipping hammers, and the ever- present red lead. On the Campbell the criterion was the O. D. watch at sea. " The Cadet O. D. of the relieving watch will muster the relieved watch except for the 102 relieved O. D., who will muster the reliev- ing watch; the lookouts will muster on the guarterdeck with the engineroom force. " The evaporator room was hell on earth — those dials leered and smirked for four hours; " You got the evap watch? What would you do if the salinity went up, the capacity went down, the vap jel ran out, and there appeared cumulonimbus on the horizon? " The trick on the throttle gave everyone that so valuable feeling of actually having something to do with the running of the plant. And who will forget those arguments as to which was the bet- KUIbt Kermit 1, Hammock weather ter ship; the $(■ " 255 ' s or the " " e 327 ' s? Station keeping as O.

" " Quarter- master, hand me the stadimeter — yeah, that thing right there. " " Catapult Sugar this is Gismo Easy, over and out. " But we learned. We learned to stand a watch. We learned shipboard routine from the higher echelon point of view. CIC was no longer a mystery and the finer points of navigation gradually revealed themselves to be something other than a subject of study for Saturday morning. We developed confidence in ourselves and in those under us as we worked together one hundred feet above the deck. Under the tutelage of Lt. Hodgman, we learned to do amazing things with a block and a piece of string, and became used to seeing the Campbell close aboard as we passed fuel, water, mail and cadets in various degrees of dryness back and forth.

Amsterdam — the Kalverstraat, the Dam, a country of friendly and wonderful peo- ple. We saw the diamond factories, the canals, and the beautifully kept country- side; it was all that we had ever heard about it, and then some. Back out the canal in the middle of the night and on to Antwerp, the city of the fourteen foot tides. The people lined the dock twenty-four hours a day; the waist of the Eagle was a stage on which many an amusing skit was portrayed. " All right, you two men, hoist up that end of the brow and let ' s turn it around. HEAVE.

Assort- ed night life, friendly people, and the Canterbury restaurant were attractive in- terests. 106 " Quiere usted a bailar? " South now to La Coruna, Espana — hungry, hungry people.

Night clubs were sure something to see; nothing comparable in the U. S. Lastly the Madeira ' s and the swimming, the only thing we could afford by this time.

Demerits became more seldom, but in larger numbers. We began to understand the problems of re- sponsibility and that RHIP meant also RHIR. We worked a little harder than we thought we would, became somewhat more sympathetic with the problems on the administrative level, and tried to do our best. Things gradually worked into shape. The feeling of command comes slowly and takes a good deal of learning and understanding. So it was with us. But all was not serious. The day of the big wind it looked as if our friends from Splinterville were to become homeless as the barracks disintegrated about them. Trees came back and much to our cha- grin, we were well represented. Many of the classrooms were scenarios of tragic comedy. Saturday afternoon football games revealed the brass-buttoned Acad- emy Chorale for half time entertainment. Still no weekends. Christmas leave came and went all too rapidly. The famous New London winter was upon us for what we all hoped was the last time. " Whaddya mean topcoats . . . hell, man, it ' s only eighteen out; are ya soft? " Final Exams.

" His roommate shot him, of course, for his roommate did not believe in fairy tales. Spring, however, was here. the girls in town with the fireplaces were once more replaced with the sophisticates up the road. Weddings were planned; graduation was actually in sight. The bachelors dropped like flies as the spring worked its wondrous magic. We began to wonder . . . " Do I know enough? What ' s it like out there in the service? " Our Aca- demy days were over and somehow we felt just a mite inadequate. But we knew when we had that precious piece of paper in our hand that we had the opportunity to carve a life which would do credit to our school and ourselves. We hoped we wouldn ' t fail.

We realize that our class is another link forged in the chain that goes back to the beginning. As the last man receives his diploma that link is complete. We are part of the service.

ACADEMIC DEPARTMENTS 119 ENGINEERI] G At the halfway in the Academy course cadets meet, face to face, the Engineer- ing Department.

The practical application of our thermal analysis came each week in Com- mander Murati ' s " Shoop and Tuve " lab- oratory. The most memorable course of second class year was electrical engineer- ing. Captain had us either rolling in the aisles, quaking in our boots, or tacked up on the wall. Never before has any one man who has meant so well ever been so modest or slow about letting anyone know it. Lieutenant Rivard and Lieutenant Commander Olson led us deeper into the realms of electron- ics and bewilderment. At the same time two new instructors. Lieutenant Munch- meyer and Commander Houtsma, re- ceived their baptism in teaching cadets. The former quizzed us orally when he was engineering ofiicer aboard the Campbell. His thoroughness and eagerness had us wondering what class would be like un- der him. The anxiety was soon allayed when we were exposed to his informal and likable classroom manner. Command- er Houtsma kept us on our toes with his engineroom bellow. You couldn ' t help but absorb some " Power " . The future engineering officers of ' 51 have no doubts about the benefits of the two year grind under this department. In fact, it is an aid to any officer to have a sound engineering background.

We were under continuous fire from this subject for our first five semesters here at C.G.A., and we saw many drop by the way side from the devastations of this subject. It all started with simple trigonometry and built up to differential equations. In the middle of our mathematical courses, we hit mechanics. Who can for- get the usual — " Seats; break out paper and pencil. " That came in one breath from Mr. Johnson. Professor Sharp did nobly with his reply that — " The solution of this problem is relatively simple, " and then proceeded to fill up five blackboards, sep- arating the problem into its basic steps. However, the one instructor in the Math Department that we will remember as an outstanding example and symbol of all an officer and gentleman should be is Mr. Smith. He had his trying moments during various crises in our cadet days when we were not toeing the mark. It is true that there were rough rams and long lectures to add insult to injury. But, when it was all over and we could view it with a broad outlook, it all fell together in a much more comprehensible manner. It was not just polar equations, simple harmonic motion problems, or any of the other exercises; it was a fight to fill us with respect for honor and a conscientious attitude toward our varied assignments. In our years ahead in the Coast Guard we may forget calculus completely, but never the prin- ciples Mr. Smith presented to us. 121 SJTf ' Sii, 1 report the Cadet O.D. properly relieved. " Lt.

This cannot be done in the classrooms or in the bar- racks but must be done at sea or on the waterfront. We have been fortunate in having two of the best known seamen in the service as head of the department — Captain Imlay during our first three years and Captain Bowman during our last year. The waterfront is the most colorful place on the reservation. The equipment runs from a modern seaplane to the square- rigged vessel, Eagle. In between these two extremes we have two fifty foot schooners, a fleet of small sailboats num- bering over fifty craft, several small power boats, and over twenty-five pulling boats. This fleet is further rounded out by the one hundred twenty-five foot cutter, Yea- ton, which spends much of its time at the Academy for the instruction of cadets in handling of larger vessels. We soon learned that the waterfront could play a major part in recreation as well as work. Weekends find a large per- centage of the Cadet Corps and their guests sailing on the river and sound in anything from the twelve foot dinghys to ' he staysail schooners. Curlew and Tera- GRAM. In the summer the Eagle is conspicuous by her absence from the Academy. Her address is in care of the four winds and the seven seas, and it is at this time that cadets gain the greatest part of their sea- manship. It has been proved many a time that the square-rigger sailor is the best seaman. It is with pride that we point to those days and tell stories which begin — " Now when I was a cadet, . . . " . 122 -X(IC3« SCIENCE i " To graduate young men . . . well grounded in . . . the sciences " — is a part of the Academy ' s mission. Professor Hoag ( " Daddy Warbucks " for short) has been doing more than a one man job of show- ing us the fundamental aspects of the phy- sical and mathematical concepts of the universe. We learned that the force of at- traction of tiny, tiny particles is " tremen- jus " and that the ocean swells consist of " tiny, tiny particles moving in uniform cir- cular motion " . Indeed, our study was made colorful by the foremost " B+ " (it would be " A " if he didn ' t devote his life to cadet education) physicist in the coun- try. The Professor is a born showman, as was proved in the McAllister Hall magic shows. In addition to physics, the Science De- partment presented a condensed chemis- try course. We were subjected to it for two reasons: first, because the information concerning boiler feed treatment, electrol- ysis, plating, rust, and other topics well covered would undoubtedly confront us aboard ship; but second and perhaps more important, because the standards governing college degrees require a min- imum number of credits in chemistry for a Bachelor of Science degree. As we are exposed to the engineering world, the value of these basic scientific subjects stands out. Left to Right — Lt.(ig-) Ball, Lcdr. Bastow, Lcdr. Carkeek, Lt. Kolkhorst, Cdr. Hoag, Lcdr.

GUXXERY, LAW AXD TACTICS The most striking and conspicuous de- partment of the Academy, to the civiHan observer, is that of Gunnery, Law, and Tactics. During its first two years of ex- istence, the class of ' 51 was exposed to this field through drill periods and sleepy, winter afternoon military science sessions in the armory. The first man who was told to stand for the remainder of the period made all of us stay awake. Drill looked good from a distance but was hard work when in the midst of it. However, it made the big distinction between civilian col- leges and the Academy; and everyone was proud of it. First class year brought with it two im- portant professional subjects — law and gunnery. As for the former. Commander Smith was a good example of justice in his fair way of putting across the essen- tials of military law. The Gunnery De- partment will be well remembered for its — " The actuates the of the . True or False? " Or, perhaps even more vividly, we will al- ways recall the magical anesthetic sound, " PING! " It was a tough assignment for the instructors to grind a lot of important but dry material on the operation and maintenance of naval weapons into our " Rip Van Winkle " minds. But their efforts will be appreciated when ' 51 steps into the shoes of gunnery officer. 124 PHYSICAL EDlICATIO] The Physical Education Department, under the direction of Commander Merri- man, was the target of much varied criti- cism. How well we remember pushing rakes and shovels down on " John ' s Little Acre " when we wished to be playing touch football! The same reaction resulted when the baseball diamond was com- pleted, and we were drafted to keep it in good condition for the home games. But we were proud of the lower field when all work was done. And we were when the team actually played at home. The real joy of P.E. was the unsupervised football and baseball games we used to play at. Somehow first class year was a disap- pointment. Instead of being free to take gym when we desired (as had been done in years past ) we were made fourth class P.E. instructors. Never-the-less, P.E. (body contact basketball ) did not lose its spirit, and life was not at an all time low. To some, the worst part was logging time in Mr. Newton ' s bathtub. Indeed, the lot of the " drowned rat " and " water-logged sponge " contingent was not a happy one. Even our compulsory P.E. periods will be missed by many as we look back. While they included life saving and ex- ercise, designed to aid an officer in meet- ing the physical requirements of the ser- vice, they will also be remembered as good sport and fun. Hmc.

GEXERAL STUDIES Our one connection with classics, cul- ture, and human interest subjects, the General Studies Department affords us a pleasant (as we look back) change from the slip stick pushing that the rest of the departments advocated. Although we were required to take these subjects for credit toward our Bachelor degree, we used to wonder why we spent time read- ing what Thucydides had to say about some long forgotten local Greek feud or how the theater going public of that time obtained a new lease on life under the emotionally liberating effect of Sophocles ' " Oedipus Rex " . However, as time rolled by, it all began to fit together and have some significance. Mr. Huron ' s fine understanding of hu- man nature and sharp wit broke through his French accent and apparently blase attitude (about the fortunes of cadets, academically), and we gradually began to see everything in a new light. Mr. Carl- son ' s jovial classroom manner had a way about it that made the local colorists of the old West look like also rans. Pro fessor Lawrence guided us through the obstacles of business finance, invest- ment, and government control of inflation. What started as the most questionable part of our curriculum as far as useful- ness is concerned turned out to be an in- valuable aid in broadening our outlook and preventing a completely one-sided education. 126 rfr tal inler- 0efie mJj iene .rX Librarian E.

Included in the publication are historical and current facts about the for- mation of the Coast Guard and the physi- cal and internal construction of the Acad- 142 emy, articles on postgraduate education, future pay, reviews of cadet activities, and such everyday facts as the best pieces to eat and where to board your guests for the weekend.

Solution: more publicity. With that as a motto and a room in the bilges to work in, the Publicity Committee carried on in valiant style. Of course, more went on in that room than first meets the eye — revolutions were planned, Christmas cards were sold, etc. Ours was definitely not the simple life — once the O.D. found us — we didn ' t want to go on liberty the next month, anyhow. The most fantastic part of the year ' s work was when we crossed paths with the First District with respect to " cadet procure- ment " . Just because we wanted to talk at the same high schools that they did was no reason for them to get annoyed. But they did! Not only did we receive threat- ening letters and phone calls, but a visitor to b oot (with two broad stripes). Oh well, just think someday we too can be told what to do by a first-classman. How can so few men make so much noise? 144 N f. i ' ' - -jJC r BP y-vj OJ3K-.17 ' ? 4 4T 48 12 46 iSOj 49 43 Front Row Danieis, Lipson, Black, Cueroni, Ross, Stech, Tillo, Black, Mqr.

FOOTBALL Despite the loss of several outstanding players by graduation or encounters with the academic board, the kaydet team took decisive victories in all home games. Coach Nitchman had a two platoon grid- iron machine that could hold its own against many larger schools. The season opened with an easy triumph over Nor- wich, but all over-confidence was soon dispelled by Trinity ' s powerful eleven. The class of ' Si ' s one bid for fame that day was the performance of Captain " Pope " Pias, who had a way of breaking up most rushes on his side of the line. After that game, the team came back with new enthusiasm to fight through the season and uphold its reputation as a team with plenty of fight and spirit from the opening whistle to the final gun.

Under the able mentorship of the coach many men who never thought they would ever be competitive swimmers have turned out to be top letter men. The team has shown an improvement over its 1950 record, having worked hard to overcome the disadvantages of lack of experience and the limitations placed on the team due to the lack of numbers from which to select the team, and time in which to practice. Swimming is a sport that can reap only benefits in an officer ' s profession, for it will help develop a man to be ready with the physical strength or the moral cour- age that dangerous situations will de- mand.

EBALL The Coast Guard Academy nine is a select group that devotes its afternoons to practising at the newly constructed baseball diamond on the lower field. This landscaping accomplishment is a tribute to the administration ' s support, the gar- dener ' s planning, and the labor of many cadet gym classes. Cadets are now able to attend home games without transpor- tation problems and can lend their sup- port to our representatives in this popular American game. Baseball is one of the better spectator sports and the team is building itself up to a performance level that may someday create enthusiastic support of the whole corps. 153 " A " " ' Jk r ,ST« »5Tii? ,_f J tf Heave it, Sam! TRACK An up and coming Academy team, the track squad seems to have a desire for a chance to compete in more meets than their schedule permits. With a green team and no opportunity to run indoors, CGA won half of its meets in the 1950 season, and is looking forward to making an even better record. Unfortunately the Corps never has a chance to see the team in action because our facilities are limited that all meets must be away, but Track is a sport that develops a spirit of individual competition and adds greatly to charac- ter building in a manne r that all should appreciate. The commendable fighting spirit of our team is not confined to the will to win, but includes the will to sur- vive and expand even in the face of re- current economy moves.

Adams, Tactics Officer The Corps of Cadets has been organ- ized as a battahon since 1930 when B-Company was created and the passing years have seen other arrivals, E-Com- pany becoming the newest member this year. (There have even been a few dark whispers of a regiment in the offing.) As a tactical unit the battalion ' s usefulness extends only to the drill field. As an ad- ministrative unit it represents a great deal more. Under the direct supervision of the tactics officer much of the routine business of life at the Academy is directed through the Battalion Commander and his staff. Large numbers of official papers pass through the wheelhouse in 209 and many regulations, orders and plain rumors enter the cadet consciousness via the same route. As an attached unit to the battalion staff we have the Color Guard, an essen- tial part of the organization and probably the most photographed group at the academy.

This inveterate spirit has again come to the fore this year, ' B ' Company winning the fall competition. The spirit of cooperation between all classes has been instrumen- tal in enabling ' Baker ' to lead the overall competition from the outset. Although the military life has been stressed it has not prevented the com- pany from having numerous social events that have been hallmarks in the realms of " good times. " We are indebted to all the underclass- men who by their efforts have assisted us in attaining the high measure of perfec- tion attained by the company in this and past years. We have tried to uphold the standards and traditions of the company and know that those who follow will endeavor to do the same. - h LTJG. R. N. Niesz, Tactics Officer . S.

Formerly near the bottom in company competition, something occasionally riled them into action. In two short weeks they rose from the dismal last to a resounding second in winter competition and pushed well on the way to leadership in intercom- pany competition. Heading this fury are Company Commander " Little Paul " Yost and Company Exec. " El Bandito " Meade. The " Charlie Cats " won the basketball going away and also got the edge on drill downs and inspections.

From its start dur- ing World War II it had been comprised of the shortest men in the Battalion. The year that ' 51 arrived, though, it was changed and it gained an equal footing with the rest of the companies. Since then it has done well in competition by doing more than just holding its own. During the first semester of this year the Company was quartered on the second and third decks of Chase Hall, but with the end of exams the storm swept, water logged Bar- racks No. 4 once again became the " Dog House " . With ' 51 holding down the first class positions, John Martinez as CO and Bill Bleakley as XO in the Company, all hands turned to in an attempt to win again the CAPT Thomas Trophy in inter- company competition and the right to fly the gold streamer from its guidon.

Ahhough the cadets who were assigned to E Company were previously attached to one of the four existing companies they quickly shifted their loyalties and the company rounded into a well organized unit. Dur- ing the fall season, we were slow in get- ting started, but during the winter season we proved to be one of the leading con- tenders in the Intercompany competition. A keen sense of loyalty coupled with a desire to make E Company the best in the battalion has compensated for the tradi- tions which are present in the established groups. This spirit has been developed be- cause all members were willing to give freely of their time and energy to make their company the best. With spirit like this Easy Company vies for top honors in all intercompany competitions. LTJG. R. A. Manila, Tactics Otiicei B. W. Kniseley.

Naval Institute is equally proud of the fact that it was probably the first professional organization of its kind among the Armed Ser- vices.

" Although the Coast Guard is in peacetime under the ,-upervision of the Treasury Depart- ment, in limes of emergency it becomes a ])an of the naval forces of the coiniti-v.

Believing firmlv that close teamwork between the Navy and the Coast Guard is a vital essen- tial to the national securitv. and that the best ii to attain such teamwork is better informa- tion anil mutual understanding between the two Services, the I .
