To these men— the " liberals of CGA " — fell the almost futile task of revealing to us the realm of the intellectual. From the study of Grecian ceram.ics to present-day problems of maritime labor we plodded and plagiarized. Randall is now no more than a dim spectre linking o er the horizon past ... at one time his Maki)ig of the Modern Mind threatened to be the undoing of oius. Thucydides, Emerson, transcendental- ism. William James— for them all we have a hearty respect. We ' ll not soon forget the group who attempt- ed to rescue us from the ranks of the luienlight- ened. They afforded a velcome respite from the discipline and dogma of less progiessive depart- ments. Professor La vrence— a paragon of grey- templed dignity. Mr. Buron with his continental accent and seeming indifference to cadet mor- tality and conduct gi-ades. " Sally " Carlson and his booming laugh coupled with a love lor long- winded dissertation . . . et cetera ad infinitum.

The second class is the executiv e body of the corps carrying out the details ol indc:)ctrination inider the supervision ol the senior class in all phases of battalion acti it . The e es ol the adniiiiistra- lioii began to pick out iiidi idiials in the sea of blue and gold that had pie ioiisly been the class. The eyes o the class songlu ont the holes in the fence. . s the jOD the members of the class ioiind an increased share of the responsi- bility ol the administration of the battalion. Ciiiard lists, time ticks, and demerits became rontine. Professional training as well as aca- demics began to lend more toward those sub- jects necessary for a career as an oliicer afloat. Ihcre was no relief from discipline with these added hazards and the ise second classman walked softly. New rings and another cruise launched us into first class year.

A sharp wit, a vivid sense ot humor, and a broad kno vledge of everything and anything made him a definite personality in our midst. Filling his ou ' n room with leather-bound editions of all the classics necessitated that Arch stow nearby underclass rooms vith assorted miscellanea. The legends ot his exploits as a cadet are both incredible and hilarious. His additions to the unofficial history of the Academy stand unequaled: iz.— the time he skunked a first classman ' s room.

An uncanny knack for ferreting out the td " weeks before the rest of us earned him the ' Scoop ' " and " NMY " ies. Bob is our CPA to Horatio Alger, entered these hallowed halls as fuffiber 230 out of 2 ' 50.

Imbued with the theological doctrines of Mohammed, he nonetheless found time to pay his share of off-season trib- ute to another diety called Bacchus. Pogo will probably be best remembered for this oft-recurring reincarnations of the roaring ' 20 ' s, Scott Fitzgerald, and their aboriginal exercise— tlie Charleston. Yet there is much more be- neath this seeming levity. Gus is one of those few of us who ever had a serious thought. He captained the X-country harriers through their most successful season in modern history and was a breaststroker of no mean accomplishment. Nor could his tale be considered complete vithout men- tion of the femmes of E. City. And so with a flourish of his black derby exits Pogo . . . the only man in ' 52 who may be said to have profited by the good in CGA while refusing to relinquish one iota of the good that is Pogo. 195 Milan Aved Telian Ihc fan ih.n he uas (hi jstcncd " Milan Avctl " was a rli proprialcly K» ir(lccl sttict f«r vfars ... to al! of ns In ' , " .lit " .

Paradoxically, re derives his pleasure primarily from embittered yet futile railing against the system. He spent his afternoons in Fig ' s chlorinated puddle, his torpedo- like shape giving him a natural affinity tor water. Deese was elected class president second class year to reward him for faithful attendance at the " club " ... his record is as yet unsoiled by a single avoidable absence. He ' ll be remembered as one of the most universally liked men in the class . a fellow who can boast any number of talents— but who doesn ' t have to. 197 James Edward Thompson Here is a man wliDse academi clili eme has placed him Ui)i, ii ihc pieiedeiue list and whose uillinirness lor work lias made ihis hook relati (.! eas to prinlnte.

I. and setting up sliop here at CGA. Easy-going is the vord for Sig— no matter how many are trot- ting aroimd in those concentric circles we all know so veU, he ' s the one person we can always depend upon to keep his head where it belongs. Rare indeed is the man who ' s not felt that familiar clap on the back and seen the Waldheim grim . . . yep, Sig ' s out of cigarettes again. He has tried innu- merable times to rid himself of the Habit-never had much luck. Without Sig no bidl session on fisiiing, or infantry tactics was ever claimed to be com- plete. Good-natmed, likable . . . never working too hard if more pleasant diversion was in the offing . . . most at home with his ration of schnapps and hillbilly music . . .

One would expect that Don would necessarily fall short on the academic side, but this ' s far from the case. He continually amazed all of us with top-notch grades •roduced by a seemingly total ignorance of the subject. His sleuthing and xime-busting techniques soon solved the myriads of befuddling intrigues hich crop up each day at the Academy.
