We were no different from any class which had come before, they told us, no less in need of brace-ups, rifle indoctrination, and five minute reports. From the moment we reported aboard, nothing was spared that might detract from our proper indoc- trination. There were so many things to learn, and such little time to learn them in. The days were long, and we ended them exhausted. It seemed then that everyone was going out of their way to make living unpleasant, so, naturally enough, we were resentful at first. Meanwhile, the pace con- tinued; we found satisfaction in learning. Butt right m m After the short cruise we felt assured that we had mastered the fundamentals. Only the fine points remained between us and perfection . . . rude awakening! The days of Swab Summer, we found, had only been a " once over lightly. " " You ' ve been here long enough to know . . . ! " became the all too familiar phraseology of our chastisement. The real difference from Swab Sum- mer was in the academic routine. No longer a review of fundamentals, the task at hand now be- came the K of serious business oi marine engineering. The first problem was to conquer the slide rule. At first a challenge in itself, in due time it became merely a gadget to aid in meeting the challenges presented by the math and physics departments. Yes, we were on our way . . . somewhere. It took five to drag Pope in New knowledge did not remain confined to aca- demic and professional subjects. " The amenities " were duly attended to from the start. The Tea Dance introduced us to the cream of the local lassies, while the " Pig Push " emphasized the merits of the sophisticated collegians across the way. Tastes WILL vary, and a liberal education must present various points of view. If we grumbled at the aspect of being forced to attend these receptions, we were thankful that they existed when the first formal dance approached and a date became mandatory. The dance seemed awk- ward at first, what with bow ties, receiving line, and dancing three inches apart. Then, as always, we found that a fellow can adjust to anything if he has a little ingenuity. On other weekends we picked up the knack of providing ourselves with entertainment within the limits of our munificent compensation. The movie on the base, the movies in town, and the soda fountain in the Rec Hall became much appre- ciated diversions. A long, quiet snooze, hereto- fore unheard of as a mode of recreation, lent variety to off-duty hours. Boredom could not pos- sibly gain a foothold amid the fast-moving tempo of life within the walls. In moments of depression there was the girl back home to write to, and a Christmas leave to come. V- ■ m: f f Sir, the guard is mustered Sterling lads To the colors ' Tm not going to make a speech but . . . ' w.. . IIC That first Christmas leave surpassed all expec- tations of joy, but returning also presented new depths of bleakness. The spectre of our first set of final exams loomed before us. Few of us had ever taken an exam lasting four hours before; the completely spent feeling upon finishing was strange. It really seemed rough to have four exams in nine days, then. The new semester was pretty much like the last. Wing orderlies required no lesser degree of per- fection, and a square corner still meant ninety degrees. There were signs of change though. Hot! 26 i The streets of New London Friday night storms become more violent, and eyes wandered from the boat more frequently. On Armed Forces Day we paraded the streets of JVew London; it was a tiring march, but a source of pride. While not daring to look, we couldn ' t help imagining the beautiful girls crowding the Ah, beautiful gold sidewalks to admire us. Spring came to New London late — as usual. It brought another week of final exams, the gala activities of June Week, and hurried preparations for that long trip across the broad expanse of the North Atlantic. Two timer 27 Up and down Parallelogram in action FIRST LONG CRUISE With only scant premonitions of what was to transpire in the ensuing seventy days we stuffed our seabags and scrambled aboard. Seasickness? Not us! Weren ' t we old salts with a short cruise already behind us? Four on, eight off one day, instructions the next, gave a welcomed full night ' s sleep every second night. Duty days were always long; watches became routine. " What ' s your course? What ' s your heading? Mind your helm! " After all, the Cadet OD had to have some func- tion. The first subject of instruction consisted of committing to memory the pinrail diagrams we had studied during indoctrination periods. In- struction, too, became routine. Spend the forenoon setting sail, the afternoon starting the handybilly, and the evening taking in sail. That is, except in the event of inclement weather. In that case, break out foul weather gear, polish brass all morning, and holystone the decks all afternoon. In between times, for example, during the half hour between noon and quarters, there was plenty of work to do in locating the answers to the questions in the cruise notebook. Still, just once in a while, a card game managed to get started. Preview of things to come. don ' t feel so — ooops- Attention on deck .9 %»?

Bi- cycling through the countryside, traditional wind- mills, Kinderdyke — where everyone wore wooden shoes, touring the network of canals, viewing ex- hibits of original Rembrandt ' s, or even proving the merits of Herr Heiniken ' s product. A day ' s run from Amsterdam took us to Antwerp, a bus from there to Paris. For culture lovers, hours in the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Invalides — for us, through the Arc de Triomphe and down Les Champs Elysees, the Folies Bergere, or even Pi- galli. One day and two nights, never to be for- gotten. Stop at several southern ports, and then home.

The func- tion of a third classman, we thought, was to sit around taking life with a smile and a relaxed brace. No swab calls, no orderlies, no three inches; in short, no hardships. The long cruise had removed all thoughts of a life of leisure, and whatever delusions had been placed in our heads by summer leave were soon dispelled. We found ourselves still swabs, only with a stripe. The con- duct reports that commenced, " Only delinquen- cies of five or greater will be read, " usually con- tinued, " Grader, Five ... " Restricted men ' s formations were a roll call of the class and any- one conspicuous by his absence became a candi- date for the goody good medal. Their best jeet forward Look at it this way The cutler — in person Eyes Right Space Cadets Ws really very simple We would still have been able to lead a life of comparative leisure, except that the combina- tion of calculus, mechanics, physics, and chem- istry took all of our available time and some not available. Trees were enforced for the first time we ' d known, and life became unbearable to the poor unfortunates who considered more than two trees as gravy. Calculus intioduced us to the educational theory of right answer examinations, and a miss was as good as seven leagues. Me- chanics impressed us with the widening gap be- tween us and the civilian world as we learned with awe that bread cost 17f a loaf on the outside and the only sure way to beat inflation consisted of migration to Alaska. Right behind you The grey days of early winter came, and with it came trips in the Grey Goose to the Sub Base for a course in shipboard fire fighting. Equipped with OBA ' s and foul weather gear we crawled along the catwalk, opened the valve, crawled back, and then it was somebody else ' s turn. As soon as we put out one fire it was relighted, and we ' d put it out again. No serious damage was done to our bodies, but the smell permeated everything we owned. All visions of the six inch rule were banished as we learned to relax and enjoy formals and the efforts of the Dance Committee. Our own third class corner, even with its hard seats, made us feel more as if we really belonged. Anyone want a date? I ' Well all be two stripers soon " Der German Cadeten A mouse? The mug There were dignitaries on hand for another milestone if ' 3 38 What goes up must come down They didn ' t leave any holes open Christmas leave was old stuff this time, and held less thrill than a year before. Old friends from high school were scattered about the coun- try and Mary was just another phone number in a book labeled " Dear John " . Back from leave and into the arms of two weeks of exams. We applied ourselves wearily to the uninspiring horrors that had been presented to us daily for the past eighteen weeks. The toll from the Academic Board was less severe than that Winter sailing from the wave of bitterness. It was disheartening to view this double-edged scythe of bilge and bitterness. We resumed classes as the cost of bread con- tinued to spiral. Days were bright but cold, and life plodded on at its weary pace. Then came spring, with beach parties, picnics, and afternoons in the Arboretum. It became increasingly hard to stay awake in class and Cupid found his way through the impregnable fence. Smitty got them clean 39 jrXE WEEK Beginning with a solemn note they begin their careers The class dinner was a splendid aflfair; the rec hall was aglow with red horses, and the victuals were even palatable. Skits, acts, and all manner of entertainment abounded. We were convinced that ' 53 had scored again. Concerts before evening parades 1 Wflk - z Jif r - ( flU B B Be ' Jf ' ' ' I H lsf " ' « if f 1 Where even first classmen stand in line On the direct route to second class year was third class June Week, with our first Ring Dance. Our ring was small and in a far corner, but the 1953 in big numerals stole the show. The band was at its best and the evening went in a mist of dreamy allure and charm. White orchids were in abundance, and liberty was phenomenal at 0230. June Week was the usual storm of reviews, open house, and last minute preparations for the new battalion duties. Then came the happy Friday when the swabs awoke chanting, " But, Sir, but Sir . . . , " and we ushered ' 51 out into the cold of the service. We were ready to begin. . . . Classes 1, 2, 3, 4 Finish 1, 2, 3, 4 40 1 ' P i Recalling our own confused attitudes during our Swab Summer, we were still appalled by the green look of the new class. As we shepherded our charges from one class to another, and tried to explain to the Commissioned OD how a whole platoon could get lost between Chase and Satterlee Halls, it seemed doubly won- derous that we had been able to find our way around unguided. The schedule wasn ' t arranged to give us time to enjoy the freedom commensurate with being the senior class at the Academy — but we found time. We looked like that once? AIVOTHER PHASE OF TRAIXIXG Length to the fourth decimal Liberty in New London on a balmy summer night presented an equally un- precedented situation, but, in the best of cadet traditions, we faced up to the task. If any hasty entanglements developed, they were cut short as we packed seabags to climb aboard an R5D bound for the new fields of Cape May and Liz City. We had no precedent from past years to guide us as we took on the job of outfitting a new class. The watchword became " improvise " , and so we did. Strangely, an amazingly large percentage of our issues fit! Without even a sales talk «» l i- , JIJIVIOR BIRDMEX Elizabeth City, N. C, introducing green cards, GCA ' s, and hush-puppies. After listening to hours of sea stories and air stories, each of us became thoroughly convinced that we, too, could loop a tandem rotored helicopter. Travel in style Not to be confused with joy boys L — issf Dit — dali — uh — dit — uh Bermuda sunshine The Short Cruise did a fine job of introducing the Fourth Class to the realities of life in a sea- going service. As we smiled smugly at the seasick unfortunates who left their saltier classmates to relieve themselves on watch, we couldn ' t fail to remember that it was but a short time since we had been in the same predicament. Halifax proved to be a great liberty town, with more than the usual number of modes of entertain- ment. The natives were friendly, and moreover we could speak the language. However, it took some time to adjust to their sport of swimming in super- cooled water. Bermuda is reputed to be a semi- tropical island with near flawless climate. We arrived there on Sunday afternoon, and departed on liberty amidst torrents of rain. Arriving at the dock in the liberty boat, our soaked uniforms must have given us the appearance of rats de- serting a sinking ship. To our amazement, we found no place to relax and dry out, due to the local policy of rolling up the streets on Sunday. The high point of the whole cruise was the Eagle ' s dramatic entrance into New London Har- bor. Sailing in at eleven knots, we put her head to the wind and dropped the hook just as the rags came in. SCIENTAE CEDIT MARE. Routine and serene WHERE THE IVY CLIMBS We returned from the short cruise to find the haggard football players trying to live in spite of full days of practice. When they got out there on Saturdays, it was obvious that the practice was paying off. Spirit rose with each succeeding win. finally to attain totally unprecedented heights. The real challenge came on a soggy field amid a steady drizzle. Coming from two touchdowns behind, the Bears played a magnificent second half for a final score of 13 — 13, and went on to an undefeated season. " Now loose objee . . .

Jim Therapy Just a few drops left t The weather was usual New London variety, but didn ' t stop the Arboretum from doing a booming business, even on into days of early winter. Our own radio in the rec room did much to boost the morale of the class. The record committee went whole hog with Doris Day and April Stevens. This was living! ptaHi •m The JOOD and the man in charge of colors made ' 53 regulars on the report for awhile. After a couple times around, when we thought we were getting the swing of things, the instigation of gate orderly duty put us right back to the beginning. It became difficult to avoid giving each member of the guard squad fourteen hours of duties, on weekends impossible. Up the river At last the rings came The transition from winter to spring brought our long awaited rings. There were those who antici- pated the big rings because their miniatures had long since been enticed from them, but for most of us they were important because they meant we were soon to be wearing a horizontal gold stripe. All we have to do is find the pivot Shoo takes colors 48 Th e ivinners Hour ntici- M h1of It we ripe. RIXG DANCE Preparations for our Ring Dance started early in the fall, and continued at full pace through the Winter and Spring. The huge replica of the ring was coated with layers of papier mache and plaster; " Steamboat ' s " fountain was bolted, wired, and waterproofed; Ernie Rowland worked long hours painting hundreds of feet of Parisian scenes. In the rec hall we tied our rings around the OAO ' s neck (lets get that ribbon just a bit longer) then sat down to steak and speeches. Later on, at the gym, with dim lights and soft music, we cere- moniously received our rings. The remainder of June week was given over to the usual long hours of drill and evenings filled with picnics and parties, all climaxed when we donned the horizontal stripe and shipped out for points east. Red Horse Cafe Big night on The Champs Elysees i 49 (i «cr FOR THE LAST TIME Wide-eyed and bushy-tailed we took off from the dock, and right off the steering gear on the Eagle went haywire. That was the beginning of many hectic experiences at the hands of the Horst Wessel. After a weekend of liberty and getting unacquainted we were underway for Oslo at 0930 Monday. We soon fell back into the routine of three hours of sleep and work for the rest of the day. Within a week we ' d been transformed from ambitious youngsters to hideous zombies. We set and took in sail, observed the new third class go- ing through the old routine: chip, scrape, brush, paint, chip, scrape. . . . The navigation requirements were astronomical in more ways than one. It ' s too bad we weren ' t given credit for loran fixes on the trip across. All the ambitious embryo navigators were com- pelled to forget any ideas of limbering up their sextants as we plied on through day after day of thick fog on the east bound leg of the cruise. 50 fc A trio oj ambitious seamen wasting away the afternoon weaving baggywrinkle and soaking up a bit of sunshine The salty used the backstays for quick return from way up there . . . just another way to impress the seagulls The evaps . . .

From the first night ' s party at the Kongen, through the many official thirst quenchers and shipboard receptions we lived a fast, fast pace. Aside, on our own, we discovered 65 steaks, plush nightclubs, and the beau- tiful parks and rural life within a half hour ride of the ship. Tourists 54 Happy birthday and happy holiday Last Stop : Teneriffe ROLLIIVG HOME Poppa Santos and the " music " makers Ah! Banana Cream It seemed unbelievable that at last we were in Teneriffe for a few moments of tropical pleas- ure and then weighing anchor for home. It was still several hundreds of miles to Race Rock, but we were going in the right direction. The Campbell hauled away on a rescue mission and returned, only to leave again for a fast trip into New London. 56 jr ( i» ' « .rw»?a| I Where ' s that blasted balloon? " " Star light, star bright. . . . " Yeomen first class The trip back brought a flurry of finishing up every- thing that had been set by the wayside. Starsights were shot and worked in mass production. Notebooks were copied fast and furious, and we all talked and dreamed of that wonderful thing called leave. Moored to State Pier with all ship shape for the second and fourth class we brushed a tear from our eye, yelled " makeway " , and tore down the gangway. Pennants wild, five card stud Eaglets — bending every effort J ti r With capabilities befitting First Class Officers A fast game of who-cau-slain-the-baU-the-hardesI AT LAST The year for which we had been work- ing and waiting! Ayear of leisure — radios, pool and ping pong in the rec room, and an occasional weekend. If return from leave could ever be called a happy occa- sion — this was it. With football games and the visit of the Commander in Chief, we had little chance to contemplate as all went by in a mad whirl. 0200 hours: " Yeah, whaddya want? " Amidst a crowd oj reporters, secret service men, and Brass, came the Commander ill Chief. Hal Olson s honor platoon brought him aboard in the highest oj military tradition. PRESIDENTIAL VISIT The task of whipping the battalion into shape for the review had been frustrat- ing, almost impossible. When the time arrived it went off ivithout a mishap. Top men Helmsman of the Ship of State 59 A last look Classes carried a different aspect than ever be- fore as we began studying those subjects that more closely affected us after graduation. Granted, seven major subjects is a full schedule, and the purpose of some of the subject material covered didn ' t always make sense, but we were going downhill anyway, and if there wasn ' t something interesting on the radio we could put the model airplane away and devote a few hours to the pur- suit of knowledge. Weekends were full of doings; the weather stayed warm on into November to the happiness of arboretum lovers, but when it finally did turn cold we were still allowed to go outside and drill every Saturday — how lucky could we be? The Autumn weather brought back another old tradition — King Football. Saturday afternoons we formed on the parade ground and to the stir- ring music of the Band quick stepped down to Jones Field for the impressive ceremony of lay- ing into the stands. This year, luckily enough, only ten Kadoodles were reported missing as a result of the mad stampedes. There were also the away trips by bus and rail to see the other " Joe Colleges " . At the last football game a new tradi- tion was inaugurated by the selection of an Academy football Queen; the lucky winner being Miss Pat Stehr of Mount Holyoke College. As December arrived, Christmas Carols filled the air and " how many hours " plagued the swabs every free minute. Then the day came; finals over, bag packed, and home to greet Santa. «.

But recre- ation weekends were ours for the asking, and Spring was around the corner. As if by magic the first balmy days of the new semester saw the usual Softball, golfing, spring fever, sun-bathing, picnicing, and the new Fords. Then, with academics over — June Week and a flurry of liberty, buying, packing, drilling, and liberty all culminating with a long hot gradua- tion and finally, after four years on the banks of the beautiful Thames, Freedom!

If you think he isn ' t tough, just ask him. If you think he isn ' t silly, just ask anyone else. Tregenza is one of our very few who have not been converted to the ball and chain faction. Supporting this conviction, he has never failed to keep the concerned females well under control. " How many days for Mr. Anderson? " became a regular post mail call cry second class year. Despite his Windy City upbringing, he is really a true aristocrat at heart. Who else in ' .53 smokes five dollar cigars? Andy is well known and will be long remembered for his enjoyable brand of social humor which has always been the best in our eyes. Academics aren ' t the easiest thing for him, and only grim determination in those weekend sessions have kept him with us; having him around has made the difference between living life and enjoying life. Paul Tregenza Anderson 66 p Ckh; iOlee f WPro- ' 4 For a class composed wholly of human beings, we have enough pseudo-animals to start our own zoo. Probably the first one to gain such distinction was Paul Arnold, the Little Beaver. Originally holding the Academy title as flyweight woman hater, Beaver won his name with a swift and extravagant transition to the ways of a casanova. The height of the reform came in Paris when he staunchly refused to give up the party and retire. Always ready to help out a classmate, Paul has probably spent more weekends standing by for other people than the rest of the class combined. Always flunking a couple subjects, he none-the-less spends every possible hour hovering over the books. Displaying enough startling and contradicting facets to endear himself to our collective memories for life, we can only close by saying, " You ' re alright Beaver, go get ' em. " . Paul Laurence Arnold 67 11 GLOVERSVILLE,MEVt YO As one of Fifty-three ' s true disciples of Issac Walton, Babs can be found fishing anywhere from upstate New York trout streams to the reefs off Watch Hill. A man of great determination he warmed Nitch ' s bench for three years before he landed his regular spot at tackle. While the European cruise provided enough sea time to satisfy most of us, this salty one volunteered for the Newport-Annapolis race during Second Class Summer leave. A self-styled bachelor, he has eluded domestic minded members of the species in ports on both sides of the Atlantic. Not academically inclined, he much prefers liberty (ah, those New York weekends) to studies, bar none. A rather unfortunate experience involving a fickle jalopy called Black Beauty has left him skeptical of the wonders of the modern mechanized world; he says he ' d rather walk than fix flats on the Academy reservation. Darrell L. Babeock I i i 68 Kenneth E. Barrett Four years ago the fates saw fit to bless these hallowed halls with the culmination of Westwood ' s hopes and expectations. Well versed in music, sports, and the sciences, Ken can successfully participate (actively or verbally) in any field of endeavor. As the CGA version of Louis Prima, his mastery of trumpet and voice has captivated all within earshot. As a cadet bugler his personal interpretation of standard calls gave a bit of variety to the daily routine. Once a confirmed devotee of bachelorhood, to quote him now, " Those days are gone forever " . Like so many, he fell prey to the charms of a fair lass from across the way and knows full well he will never regret have fallen. Through four years. Ken has been one of the few of us who consistently worked hard at academics. Along with a precedence number and the personal satis- faction of a job well done, he has earned our respect for his perseverence. WESTWOO Wei Wre, JERSEY gh School ep School r; Running Light 69 Laurence Oliver Bates «K] ! From the hills of sunny Southern California via the ranks of ' 52, ' 53 acquired one of it ' s foremost hot-rod addicts. Skip Bates. A would-be auto designer, and general expert on the why ' s and wherefor ' s of things mechanical, he keeps his desk stuffed with all the latest word of the horseless carriage trade. At one time Lar ry held a varsity spot for our grunt and groaners, but after third class year he retired to spark Charlie Company, and to become one of CGA ' s pistol experts. As one of the first from the class to become domesticated. Skip has lived the " other life " down the street a way. Any Saturday or Sunday he can be found mowing the lawn, drying the dishes, and performing such other training tasks. The rigors of Academy life have only barely dimmed his love for the great cultures of Denmark, and late lights have but improved his bedroom eyes. f I CALIFORNIA ol k 70 ■WTONVILLH WASS. ] K Newton HlBl School Bfii fttbdj ; Baseball; fl|| MTnm cii m Glee Club; Howlin mjGale By far the tallest, blondest member of the class of ' 53 is Snake. Famous for having his books look as new at the end of the year as when they were issued to him, he has found better ways to occupy his time than studying. With height as an original asset, he became a star on the basketball court, then proved to be an all-round athlete by doing a classy job at first base. He ' s quite an authority on all sports, and main- tains a running file of clippings. Without thinking, he can give you the record, who set it, and the little known facts which make it interesting. In co-originating the Academy ' s sports weekly, " The Howling Gale " , he found a use for his knack of writing as well as providing the battalion with the latest in CGA sports. His bull session forte is the opposite sex; natural signs of a solid bachelor. He ' s looking for the right one, and in the meantime intends to enjoy life completely. Robert Charles Beii§ioii J One of the converts from the class of ' 52, Mike has become an advocate of living in the shade of the trees. For five years he has proven again and again that he is a main cog of Academy athletics. In football he has been the tall, sticky-fingered end who could be counted on to snare the pass needed to win. On the court he has gotten the rebounds, and in addition has often done the scoring. After being slowly Dear Johned by the O.A.O from back home, Mike turned to dividing his time equally between searching for a better half, and disentangling himself from the prospects he found. Always seeing the lighter side of life, " The Cheeks " has a rare talent for mimicry. There was a Monogram Club banquet when he was so effectively heckled from the side- lines l)y the Tactics Officer that the show almost didn ' t go on, l)ut generally nothing can stop either him or the laughing. Murray W. Boggs, Jr. 72 CORNING, With fishing rod in one hand and gun in the other, this lad left the hills of upstate New York to join the country club on the Thames. Whatever the weather or the season, practically every weekend finds him either smelling out squirrels or casting for trout. A slight misunderstanding (that had a spotted ending) arose one Sunday morning when an officer who saw Paul walking down a country lane toting a fish pole refused to believe that he was on his way to church. The true sportsman is also apparent in his handling of fenimes; he has yet to give up the pursuit of the covey across the road. His ever present sense of humor, and his tales of woe have brought laughts from the low- liest swab as well as from the Hill itself. Though for many months Paul considered him- self the Air Force man of the future, he is pretty confident that at last he has mastered the interworkings of the slide rule — to the gain of the Coast Guard. Paul H. Breed ■ IT Daii ' I swung down from the brow of the Bridgeport-Long Island ferry, stuffed away his pay for many years of honorable service, and headed for CGA. That slow roll of his is the result of sea duty in Yankee country, and belies the fac t that he originates from one block inside D.C. Very soon after coming here Dan started racking up bull ' s eyes on the pistol range. His accuracy never diminished and he co-captained the team to a successful conclusion of the 52-53 season. Over the four years, his favorite occupation has been liberty, and only under great pressure has he ever consented to turn down the last miiuite of freedom. More than once the minute hand stood at rigid attention as Dan entered his time on the list. Second class year, Suzie was his only love, and he maintains she never let him down. The " Lilla Bambino " has always kept ' 53 in good humor, so, " Hey maan, le ' s DOO! " Dan Heiirj Briganti 74 V Roger A. Britt In the summer of ' 49, CGA was invaded by, among other things, a sizable cranium. It is well mounted on a strong pair of shoulders with pudgy frame beneath, but the whole structure doesn ' t stand at all far above the deck. To look at the precedence list is sufficient to convince anyone that the head is neither hollow nor hard. The amazing fact in that Rog has stayed on top with such a conspicuous lack of strain. He has found limitless time available to spend at the girls school, and not without results. In addition to this, he has tended to spend study hours meandering from room to room having in mind one of a variety of noble objectives, such as bumming a cigarette, giving some pre-exam briefing, or just talking. In the capacity of a talker he does very well, whence arose the nickname of Gusty. And just as long as there is someone around with a listening ear, how can he go wrong? Bruee Clark When a loud " Haw, haw, haw " echoes through the barracks, it ' s a sure sign that Bill has arrived. The origin of the boisterous laugh is somewhat of a mystery, since a good portion of his life has been spent in military schools which were anything but raucous. He at least claims that Hilder Prep taught him more than how to pass the entrance exams. While Willie can ' t rightly be called a " service brat " he comes from a family closely associated with the Coast Guard and has been rah-rah from the start. As a third classman he started the football poster contests in an effort to get every- one in the spirit. With the pistol team he has done his utmost to uphold the tradi- tional record of accuracy. Whether with the Black Rocket in New London, or with his museum interest in Paris, Bill is well remembered for turning every minute of liberty time into a wild adventure. !toi Co- rj ' n Cadet Publicity Chai Procuremen The ' 53 version of " Joe College " , Dan arrived at the Academy with one eye on the Coast Guard and the other on the North Gate. No doubt, he has drained the utmost in pleasure from cadet liberty. Notorious as a ladies man, Bird Dog limits his talents to the delicate and dainty — openly admitting that all women are poison. Still, his list of conquests stretches from Copenhagen to Florida. A passionate dislike for all form of work, especially physical exertion, has been no bar to many hours spent in telling the world about CGA through the Cadet Publicity Committee; a little extra lib- erty was all the compensation he asked. After graduation he plans on applying for work as Calvert ' s Man of Distinction; his only worry is that they might be using colored water instead of the real stuff. A naturally easy mixer, Dan ' s flare for social events is unique . . . " Pardon me, haven ' t we met before? " Dan Alfred Colusis , Jr. 77 LI Jim was a member of that cheerful welcoming committee on the hot July day when ' 53 reported aboard. He has maintained the same cheerfulness through all four years; he can be counted on to put life into any bull session or liberty excursion. Slats will admit that Staten Island is probably more famous for Bobby Thompson than for him, but he will not admit that any major league ball clubs were formed for any pur- pose other than having someone for the Giants to beat. He ' s strictly a novel-a-day man who would undoubtedly break some academic records if he could spare the time to concentrate. As is, he has a full schedule of constant practice keyed to maintaining his skill in pool and ping pong. President of the Radiator Club and the Jane Addams Alumni Association, Jack holds a citation for efficient sack drill. As for life in general, he enjoys every last drop of it. James Hilary Conrad 78 When Big Ed left Allentown and headed for CGA few guessed what lay ahead. After a brief try at football, he turned his talents to the diamond and so impressed the coach with his long ball hitting that he immediately took over right field and has reigned there as home run king ever since. The first of three long cruises saw his cry of " I like that one! " made famous, as he went about methodically breaking the heart of every gal in Europe. However, it was not until third class dinner that he acquired his nickname of " Easy Love " while sei ' ving as MC. By this time we were nearly convinced that bald headed men really are the greatest lovers, but Jackie Blue Eyes proved that the mightiest can be conquered when she tied him down with her little blue ribbon. Ed has always proven equal to the most imposing tasks, and we know that of everyone in ' 53 he will be right on top when it comes to making good. I i Edmund Lee Cope 79 - im - .r BLOOMFIEL . NE Bloomfield Hign Schu Choir; Qt ERSEY Track From the sandy shores of New Jersey came CGA ' s gift to women — Link. With his irre- sistable charm he has fluttered the heart of many a fair maid at Conn. College and wherever else he has roamed. His enlistment in the Cadet Bugle Corps b rought on two years of the weirdest interpretation of reveille ever sounded. Not offended when informed that his talents were elsewhere, he turned to giving afternoon serenades with a tenor uke. Devising an entirely new and unique l)udget, Link devotes the prosperity half of every month to soaring into the wide blue yonder from the Waterford Airfield. Then, when finances ebb low, he heads for the college to cheer up the lonely maids. Completely content with the simpler things in life, Link is happy doing anything; sailing singing, or just hiking around the countryside. Even weather patrol will probably be exciting and enriching to our own " nature boy " . Charles Lineolii Crane. Jr. 80 Calvin Ellis Crouch Meet, Cal, a local boy who came across the Thames back in ' 49 to make good at CGA. The 65 percent system has been the force beh ind him ever since; come Saturday after- noon, and the big man spends his first few hours in the mess hall. He insists, though, that it ' s the best way to catch up in sleep or finish the latest novel. Later on in the day, say about 10 seconds before liberty is up, with a green flash of the Stude- baker, he makes it back just on time. Quiet and easy going, Cal ' s about the most for- getful guy in the world. Every spring is spent down on the lower field throwing the discus and shot. He ' s spent enough time in phone booths to have part interest in Bell Telephone. It seems to have paid off (in spite of threats of being ejected bodily) — take notice of that choice bit of femininity from Bayonne, N. J. Yes Sir, Cal ' s shackled, and he loves every minute of it, just ask him. m mk GROTOIN, CONNECTUTT Cliamnan Techiiifal High School I ami Football; Track; Sicint tg 81 at; Richard Paul Cueroni For just a little guy, Rit has made a big mark at the Academy. He ' s been the " Eddie Stanky " of our baseball team, holding down the keystone sack four straight years. In football it didn ' t take Coach Nitchman long to find that here he had a guy who could do a little of everything and do it well, " . . . got a head on his shoulders. . . . " Running, intercepting, passes, punting, or throwing timely blocks — it all seemed easy for this great competitor. Listening to a joke from his vast reportoire is sufficient proof of the terrific sense of humor masked by his dead-pan expression. While not actually a financier, he lays claim to stock in Kaman Helicopter Company and the Mohican Hotel; although he ' s planning on withdrawing from the hotel business soon to devote more time to wheezing away on his accordion. No one ' s ever doubted that Rit will follow his miniature this June — right to Beth. ogram i]2 : Vwi. M When the Bears come out of their huddle the first one to reach the line is the big, rugged center. A quiet retiring manner off the field, and a top precedence number seem a paradox with the grim determination displayed each Saturday. But statistics don ' t lie, and the deadly accuracy of Ed ' s automatic toe can be seen by looking at the lecord of PAT ' s by New England kickers in the past four years. In picking up an expert pistol rating at Cape May as well as being a regular on the hurling staff each spring, Danny has demonstrated his accuracy in many fields. For diver sion he specializes in amateur photography and in getting blind dates with beautiful girls. The film experiments generally come out good; as for the dates, beauty is only skin deep anyway. By setting his own standards high and maintaining them, Ed has made the most of the Academy. Ed ¥iii H. Daniels 83 " The Cat " left the Mid West, giving up the life of the gandy dancers to become a hooli- gan and follow the call of the sea. His first accomplishment after checking in at CGA was to learn the swab rules and the Mission before any of the rest of the class even knew that these things existed. Ted toted so many water buckets for the hoopers dur- ing his first two years that there was no choice but to elect him head manager for the last two seasons. An outstanding member of the red mike society, he leaves the ranks for a sortie with one of the many only now and then. He always returns, blushes, proclaims " BAH " , and retires to the sack for the rest of the weekend. Without any noticeable effort in studying Ted has managed to keep his grades far away from the danger point. As a feline takes to catnip, Orville has taken to the seagoing life as naturally as a catfish. Ted Orville De Young 84 f, MASS.

Not that he ' s to he termed a hird-dog or anything such, but there seems to be something about his smile and blonde locks that captivates the college girls. His appeal to the Athletic Board, however, has met with considerable opposition. As a champion of that head-busting sport, LaCrosse, Dick tried for two years to persuade the Academy to reactivate the old Indian game. Failing, he bid his followers fond adieu and settled for the cold comfort of the swimming team. Never at a loss for a buck, or a way to make one, our " Tony " is the right man to tag along with if you want to see some real shrewd bartering on foreign markets. When it comes to the art of procuring weekends, Dick has done as well as anyone; after four years his main complaint is that he can no longer find a likely " purpose of this request " . Richard Anthony Donnelly, Jr. 85 WAUCH Avon Park High Wrestling; Tide Rj Storm; Publicity Dance Band; Choir President milli Florida ' s one man publicity committee had his mind made up about everything that smacked of the North country — until a Yankee gal set about indoctrinating him. Wendell ' s life here may be divided into two phases: before Jean, and after Jean. Probably no man in the class has been so completely captivated by a member of the fair sex. Yet, in flying he does pursue a second love. In spite of the traditions of seafarers, Wendell ends four years as pure as the white stuff that comes in winter. Few know of his interest in wrestling, but everyone acknowledges him as a fine musi- cian with a special knack for directing choral groups. We always let him ask the questions in class, knowing he will cover everything. We respect his name as one that seldom got into the Conduct Book. Wherever he goes, one of Wendell ' s most valu- able assets will surely be his unquestionable good humor. Vaughan Wendell Driggers, Jr. 86 James R. Eri iii : f Oklahoma really lost one of its better assets when Okie Erwiii up and departed for civilization back East. It ' s rumored, though, that the local wildlife bought his ticket just to get rid of him. Even though Pete ' s but a one lunger, he has quietly managed to cut quite a path through the ranks of young maidens. Maintaining many active and dormant fronts simultaneously has proven as easy as casting a fly. As to why he ' s graduating, the only probable reason is that it ' s the only thing he hasn ' t done yet. Over the course of five years he has bilged, had class ones, come back from leave toting a parachute, and dunked a date in a creek. A wild ball that col- lided with the coach swab year ended his chances of getting on the varsity nine. The Academies loss is the sei-vice ' s gain though, and besides, what other military academy has ever graduated a barking seal? iUet: 87 1 George Everett The patter of little feet in the barracks only means that Twink is mimicing his latest hero. It ' s been Astair, Kelly, Nelson, and Bolger in one order or another — winding up with a choreographer ' s nightmare. Since becoming a member of the Dear Jolni club, Georgie has been content to remain an admirer of beautiful women. Readily able to fall in love with any girl to whom he might take a fancy, he also maintains the courage to jilt her as soon as the next one comes along. He points with pride to a receding hairline, and explains the difference between distinctive thinning and com- mon baldness. Besides a near perfect record in calculus (missed one problem), George must hold some kind of record for making the most final decisions to resign in a single day. After getting you to listen to his complaints against the system, and after you agree, he goes on to tell you he ' ll ])e around for about forty years. GREEN AC St. John ' s Col Cross Country; ming I M 88 Once termed " the cutest thing in ' 53 " , Ed has charmed more tlian a few people with his catching smile, friendly nature, and musical ability. At the ivorys he shows full mastery from Bach or Beethoven to his own impromptu compositions. As manager of the matmen, he ran a thoroughly efficient outfit second class year. His proficiency in handling sailboats (a raven in particular) resulted in the discredit of the builder ' s claims and some personal notoriety for himself. Utilizing spare moments over the course of a couple of years, he built a model sailing ship which combines exact dupli- cation with the art of a craftsman. He has never lost time in the pursuit of fair- haired senoritas, often outdistancing the competition handily by virtue of speaking fluent Spanish. Ed assumes his place in the service with an enviable combination of quietness, cordiality, and efficiency. Edi¥ard Clapton Fanner 89 m ■IKI id (- Here we have the Flying Frenchman from Canton ' s Creek. A champion on the mat, he is noted for his stamina and undying desire to win. Excelling in whatever he attempts, he has the reputation of being the one who always ends up on top. A Casanova from the start, he is never lacking in feminine companionship. It is not an uncommon practice for him to have three different dates in a single day, each of which is " the one " . Many a young heart has been won by his innocent appearance only to be cast aside with " Well, she had her chance " . A notorious sack rat, he spends his rest- ing hours planning " nature " parties, and scheming to acquire gear without decreasing his own assets, never knowing one day whose skivvies he will be wearing the next. Amiable and jovial, this lad has never been known to lose either his temper or a friend, or to think about anything but the lighter side of life. R.

Dealings in class favors, wedding rings, etc., etc., etc., brought in those dirty dollars to finance the trips to Passaic. When not eating ice cream, drinking beer, or writing to Gloria, Hank could be found at the helm of the Able company gridders or hoopers. Much of his time at home and abroad has been spent trying to prove the ancient adage that men without hair are the world ' s greatest lovers. Bach- elorship lasts only so long, though, and Hank will terminate the independence of his celibacy the day after graduation. An attitude of ambition, a dynamic person- ality, and a loud " Wahoo " are Hank ' s lasting trademarks. Henry C Fisher 91 rM ■ ■«pr ■. ■ Like the ducks heading South for the winter, J. V. packed up his shamrocks and headed South from Springfield toward the sea. Since coming here, he has spent three-fourths of his time scrounging jokes for Surf ' n Storm, the result of which varies from fame to infamy. Jerry got a head start toward commissary work making the TERAGRAM ' s cruise second class year. The crew consisted of seven, but he ordered food for a couple dozen; no one has yet discovered what happened to the excess. A staunch believer in the value of sunlight, he has spent his summers (including cruises) devising more and better ways to lie around and soak the stuff up. Come sunset and he heads for the brightest lights around. One of the local femmes put the touch on him a while back, and ever since then he ' s been well trained. Now and then he still gets the chance to give his favorite command, " Forward .... Quack " . Jerome V. Flanagan 92 Thoinasi Joseph Flood One of the proponents of the " maximum results for minimum effort " theory, Tom has held down a permanent spot in the middle of the class. A proud possessor of vocal talents, he has impressed all with his fine renditions of " Red River Valley " sung to the accompaniment of a long hot shower. As a lay philosopher, T. J. loves nothing better than a good argument on anything with anyone. The enjoyment is even moi ' e heightened if said discussion occurs in the vicinity of a ready supply of refreshments. Another one of the " river rats " , Tom spent his first three years on the dinghy team, with every possible weekend devoted to introducing some young lass to the fine points of sailing. " Well, can you think of a better way? " To dispel all rumors claim- ing that Brooklyn is populated by a howling mob of Dodger fans we herewith present a Flatbush fan of the Yankee Club. urj ' t 93 Galloway B. Foster, Jr. Bud didn ' t waste any time getting started at CGA — he went out for cross country in the fall of fourth class year and has been a mainstay of the team ever since, an accom- plishment in view of no previous experience in the sport. Come winter, and he was already in fine condition for Wrestling, then with the return of warm weather he went back to running with the track team. In addition to this year-round schedule of extra-curricular activities, Bud has done quite well with the amenities; phone calls beginning " Hello! This is Bud Foster " , have become very familiar to the local girls. He doesn ' t really have to introduce himself though, as the voice alone is enough to identify him. Among his many honors is the position he holds in the Bridge Crossers Society. . . .

Denny reported to these hallowed halls in ' 49, already salt encrusted from attendence at ET school. He has since spent a good deal of time at Jacob ' s Rock trying to prove his prowess as a sea dog. His utilization of lil)erty time has always l)een in the best traditions of a true sailor; whether in Oslo, Teneriife, Liz City, or New London. It ' s hard to pick out one topping exploit of this fellow IGUADIMIR; his water pistol venture as a first classman is as characteristic of him as his nocturnal motorcycle ride through the streets of Copenhagen.

Adolph has been a dead shot with the pistol team, but is better remembered for his duels with " Steve " at Cape May during second class summer. He spent countless hours making Billard Hall the spittin ' image of the Bal Taljarin for our Ring Dance.

Frauenf elder 96 Supposedly hailing from the best state in the Union, Don hasn ' t given an inch in his extolations of the beauty, wonders, advantages, etc, etc, etc of the Grizzly Bear state. The only way to get him off the subject of California is to get him to talking about the fairer sex. He ' s just received a " Dear John " , has a queen on the string ( " She ' s wonderful! " ), and another on deck waiting her turn. For nearly a year he kept the picture of his high school " true love " on the bookcase with a photo of her being married stuck in the frame. During liberty hours Don can l)e found one of three places: in the Dance Committee room dreaming up new and fantastic decorations for the next formal; up the road amazing the lassies with renditions on the uke, or down at Bill ' s sitting in the corner talking with anyone aljout anything.

Gus-Gus swears by the native land though, and won ' t so much as listen to any music other than polkas unless forcibly restrained. Limiting his athletics to PE and intercompany competition, Greg became an outstanding fullback on the bucketball court, " Maybe it ' s a little rough, but it ' s still a good clean game " . Viewing liberty with a take-it-or-leave-it philosophy, he is just as willing to stay in and experi- ment with Chinese gunnery problems as he is to venture beyond these walls. Even so, it has been noticed lately that he has been taking more and more of a biased interest in the beauty of Upstate New York. Never one to take any situation calmly, Greg goes into every job with such enthusiasm and excitement that even a miscue gets taken in stride. Gregory Carl Gaski 98 James E.

" Jim got an early start swab year on precedence and has kept a good high number since then; in addition he ' s spread his knowledge out and pulled many of us over the rough spots. Definitely not anti-social, Jimbo has indulged in his weakness for spirits and the weaker sex on a world wide scale. Even when the mail doesn ' t come through, there is always the date factory across the way. Probably one of the few men to really enjoy cruise, his " no duty, liberty " is unequaled in the realm of deals.

All you have to do is look up Kirk Grieiier and it will be done in a flash. For the past few years Kirk has been the man behind the camera here at CGA. His pictures have not only been the mainstay of Surf ' n Storm and Tide Rips, but have also appeared in newspapers and magazines across the land. Even though it seems that he spends all of his free time secluded in the dark room, he has managed to maintain a regular schedule commuting from the North gate to a certain femme ' s house down in Westport. It ' s been rumored that his letter winning high jumping was motivated solely by a strong desire to make the weekend grade more often. Kirk ' s twenty-four hour a day appetite has led to his installing what amounts to a delicatessen in his room; definite indications of future potentialities as a commissary officer. 10(1 As a product of the California Chamber of Commerce, Grimie has never been completely satisfied with anything having an Eastern taint; the one notable exception being a certain student nurse who has occupied nearly every minute of his liberty time for the past four years. At times other than liberty hours, he can be found prt)ving his lack of ntusical talent with a guitar and uke, or caring for a collection of an astro- nomical number of over-length, over-shaip knives. It is hard to decide whether his music or the sound of a knife blade rasping on a stone is the more pleasing. Don is an ardent late lights fan (hasn ' t missed a night yet), and spends the extra time knotting cord into such useful items as blackjacks and lanyards. Being a skeptic at heart, and independent by nature, he is always ready to argue and will probal)ly never accept without question anything but graduation. Donald Grim 101 •7C— BOIS Boise Boise [DAHO School College del Pro- s Treas- Rastus claims not to he from the farm, but it is common knowledge that he first heard of CGA from a drunken pony express rider. He departed the wilds of Idaho to bring a tennis racket, a big grim, and a winning personality to the decadent East. Right off he took to the book larnin ' like it was all old stuff. For two years he played basketball and football for big blue, but then the inter-company competition hit fever pitch and he rallied to the Baker company standard. He ' s been the star of many company teams: basketball, cross country, rowing, swimming, tennis, and softball. Ralph isn ' t absent minded, though on occasion he forgets what he has forgotten. " Was that my train that just left? Darn near made it! " He particularly enjoys a close game of bridge, or a bit of harmonizing with a mixed crowd. Unquestionably, he ' s a boon to any social gathering. Ralph CoiinavFa Hill 102 Some people take a long while to decide what they want from life, ])ut Don is not one of that kind. Swab year he found Norma, and his liberty hours since then have been spent with her. During that time he has become the pipe and slippers type of man of the house, justly earning his nickname of " Daddy " . In free moments he ' s at his best in a card game. Any card game will do, for he wins at bridge, crilibage, pinochle, or blackjack with equal ease. His only difficulty is that he can ' t find any- one to play with him anymore. Since sprinting to get back from liberty as the big clock ticked off the last minute has provided a good deal of exercise, Don hasn ' t felt obliged to turn out for the team, but when he feels so inclined he plays a fast game of basketjjall. After graduation he ' s going to tie the fatal knot, raise a flock of kids, and gorge himself wjth Norma ' s Italian cooking every day of the week.

To those who know him well, and know how he spends his time, the fact that he is our number one man is nothing less than amazing. Interested in everything, Rog manages to pursue a variety of interests, ranging from building model ships and airplanes to playing folk music on the oldest, most decrepit guitar in existence. Winter finds him stirring up a wake in the pool as CGA ' s leading back stroke artist; with spring comes a quick transformation from fish to bird as he takes to pole vaulting. Truly a master of the smooth line, he is rarely without several biands in the fire. However, his carefree independence has kept him free of any binding ties and he persists in the belief that it will take a mighty shifty filly to shackle him. From all reports, he ' s never wrong. Roger A. Holmes 104 f David Gidle; Ho and Gid, a true Yankee, forsook the swamps of his native Dartmouth, put on his shoes, and ambled to CGA back in ' 48. An account of activities since then would necessarily include a few girls, a little studying, some sailing, and many hours of exposulating a homespun philosophy. He was a regular member of the philosophy club until a town gal stole him, but he ' s still available for consultation. His afternoons have been spent sitting in a dingy or just lounging around the rock trying to find some- body to indoctrinate with the lore of the sea. In spite of claims by the New London Chamber of Commerce, Dave is fully convinced that New Bedford is really the Whaling City of America. Even if the days of whalers and rum-runners are long since gone, Gid will not soon forget them, nor fail to remind anyone he can corner of the glories gone by. W; M 105 Bernard A.

From casual glance he might be called an idealist, but anyone who takes the trouble to r otice will find out that he not only talks the clean life, but he lives it. His ability to overcome early morning gloom has made him the envy of more than one roommate. Engineering subjects have never held Bernie ' s interest, or at least not as much as history and literature, where he set the upper limits of the curve so often. He maintains that culture is the important thing. His afternoons have been spent on the rifle range trying always to better his score.

For the past four years he has held true to these principles, and, regardless of their al)sence, has maintained an ideal Joe-college outlook. To Bob, the call of the sea has l)ut one meaning; the sailing team. He has spent so much time at Jacob ' s Rock that there ' s been a movement afoot to rename it Iden ' s Island. The many hours, coupled with his natural ability at the tiller, led to his election as sailing captain first class year. When the ice gets too thick (even for Big Bob!) he heads for the mats in Billard Hall, where he may be found groaning through his push-ups and sit-outs with the best of them. The day hasn ' t yet arrived when he has willingly missed l)eing one of the first out of the gate on liberty: " The heck with this! " and he ' s off. Robert E. Iden 107 ri To hear Jim Irwin talk, you would get the idea that the State of Iowa is somewhat better than the rest of the U.S. put together. It has the best city (Des Moines), the best college (Drake), the best land, the prettiest girls, and produces the most corn. The last of these has been the most evident to us. Aside from wiiming his letter in basketball third class year, Jim has excelled as an outfielder for Inter- company Softball; a switch to hurling second class summer won him the moniker " Smoke " after a brilliant 37-36 victory. Unabashed by the specter of feminine entanglements Jim has concurrently pursued one or more of the fairer sex ever since he discovered the existence of same. The best action of all was when he inadvertently switched letters to the two reigning favorites. After graduation his one wish is weather statioxi duty on the broad expanses of the Des Moines River. James C. Ir n 5, 108 t I We ' ll best remember Jim by his oft used expression, " Boy, when I was your age. . . . " Pop has always lorded his " wisdom that comes with age " over our heads, though we never fully respected that wisdom until he taught us a few things about metallurgy during second class year. Age has tired him, and no longer can he muster the ambi- tion to partake in athletics; besides he feels it broadens his outlook much more to spend his late afternoon hours reading novels and sleeping. His attempts at humor are flavored with a liberal dash of sarcastic wit; sometimes causing a misconception of his nature. Actually, after a couple cups of coffee in the morning, he is not only socialjle but will also pitch in on anything (provided he is allowed to interject and augment first). The one thing he has found lacking in cadet life will cease to be a problem when a certain R N ties him down in June. James A. Kearney, Jr. 109 JIM Prei " Anyone here seen Kelly? " " He ' s where?

Startling play on the gridiron at Dorchester High brought scholarships from up and down the coast, but Mick declined and accepted the offer of space cadetship in the Jones Field Squadron. Without wasting words he manages to be an undisputed authority on a range of subjects including football plays, under the table discussions, quail hunting, and foreign legion service. For those who come up with a Chaplain type problem, the best solution is to find Joe. His ever-ready shoulder and heart rending " sob-sob " is amazingly curative, as is his advice to those who let the system iiile them, " don ' t get shook " . Joseph Morro r Kell 110 Marinus Fred Keyzer Singer, athlete, leader — these are but a few of the titles that remind us of the big New Jersey Dutchman. For four years Mario has faithfully presented his baritone voice to the Choir and Glee Club. In Chapel, at musical evenings, or at formal dances, he has been a mainstay of all the vocal groups. With Coach Nitchman ' s high stepping five he was a standout from the start, a dead eye and a knack for keeping control of the backboards has made him invaluable. Off duty, Rin has caused many a flutter of heart among his feminine admirers (witness: a green-inked letter from Troy), yet remaining true to a hometown beauty. Any enumeration of activities fails to convey the essence of the man. There ' s a certain intangible something, the unmistakable qualities of a disciplined character, which are difficult to express in words. Perhaps the closest would be " . . . that high sense of honor, loyalty, and obedience. ... " prospec|||a™ N. J.

A welcome addition to any gather- ing, his caustic comments on the particular merits of women have gained renown. Will is always ready to lend a hand, even to the point of taking out that inevitable " extra " girl. He ' s known to have been stuck with some ghastly dates that way, but he has also had more than his share of queens. No matter, though, when asked about them he always answers with a shrug, " She was all right " .

Journeying out with the boys as often as possible, Bill loves to get off in a corner, spin yarns about Paris, Antwerp, Lisbon, or Oslo ( " Ah! Ingar, now she was alright " ) and get in a bit of harmonizing. Under a shower his rendition of " Danny Boy " would put even Crosby to shame. Every fall he ' s out on the gridiron pitching the pigskin for the glory of " dear old Able " ; come winter and he ' s down in the bathtub with the rest of Fig ' s fish. Lately Walt ' s interests have been funneled into the fields of Hogan and Hopp. Every weekend he journey ' s up to the Norwich links, and in between he can be found hanging around the first class pool hall.

A high precedence number is indication enough that this method has con- siderable credence. Classes with him have never been complete until he could ask the instructor, " But Sir, just what good will this ever be? " This question is invariably followed by vociferous groans from his classmates and a lengthy argument with the instructor as to the merits of the subject. Inclined toward athletics, (when the urge hits him) he has been out for football, track, and wrestling; at other times he has refereed and played a variety of intercompany sports. With as many moods as New London ' s weather. Bill finds relaxation in browsing through good poetry, reading pocket novels, arguing, and best of all, logging rack time. I William Edi ard Lehr.

Big and rough, he became a mainstay of the Coast Guard defense and racked up an impressive record in four years of hard fought college ball. However his greatest feats have been accomplished far away from the gridiron. Swab year he tried flying out the window from the second deck of Chase Hall; second class year he supervised and helped build the fountain for the Ring Dance — it was not only beautiful but it also worked; first class year he became the first cadet to solicit trade at a pep rally. Lou professes to be quite the operator, but in reality there ' s only one gal that occupies the spotlight with him.

But the bachelor instinct invariably prevails and Lip escapes unscathed. Given half a chance, the blonde bombshell ' s wisecracks, sputters, and guffaws will demoralize any class gathering. Never one to let academics interfere with love or life, Gerry has devoted so many study hours to busily doing nothing, that he figures he should have bilged years ago. As he settles down to perfecting a letter of love (two week job at the least), or drafting half a dozen conflicting weekend plans, he swears he ' ll soon be by the board.

Full of ready good humor and an easy smile, his charms have rapidly become a legend at the establishment across the road. It has been said that Dick is a bona fide cosmopoli- tan: lover of fine foods, soft music, and you guessed it, beautiful women. Among his many extra-curricular activities, Dick is an ardent sailing fan, spending his after- noons and many weekends down at the Rock. Partially in honor of his love of parties and good times, he was elected Commodore of the Academy ' s Yacht Club. As head of the Rec Hall committee he gave the corps a better Rec Hall in general and TV in particular. Give him a crowd of Friends to laugh and joke with, a robust song, plenty of time to enjoy the finer things of life, and Dick will be content anywhere.

On the daylight portion of the weekend he can usually be found strolling around the Norwich links, but come nightfall, the romantic forbears, and he will be out with one of the many. One of the charter members of the club (any club), Rog has done his share in keeping the path to the class haunts well worn. In the process he has become one of our leading connoissems of the finer things in life. Always in the mood for a gathering, his voice and ability for close harmony of the barber shop style keeps those old favorites rolling out.

Well known as a hard and efficient worker, he is especially remembered for producing the replica of the class ring which graced our Ring Dance, and for the major part he played in the production of this volume. His fancies range from boodling to corridor scuffling, and his accomplishments include travels which have carried him to nearly all the MATS termi- nals in the U.S. Whenever he teamed up with the other two-thirds of the " Talented Threesome " (Pete and Ed) excitement always ensued. In fact, a library of books could not relate the details of all their escapades. Couplied with Max ' s flawless manual of arms can be found a firm belief in the military as an institution: sound basis for unqualified prediction of success as an officer. Max Stanley Maire 120 Here is the one and only G-Mann. Pounding his way to CGA from the Jersey fringe of the New York jungle, he became an outstanding example of what wine, women and song will do for you. A super salesman, untold numbers of cadets discovered the wonders of our Academy through his efforts as head of the procurement committee. In addition, he managed the muscle-bound mat men this past year. Principal other interests have centered around questionable pocket books, and the best jazz collection at CGA. Claim- ing a large assortment of lovelies from Oslo to Halifax to Bermuda, he ' s usually keep- ing company with a queen. However, when he gets stuck, he really gets stuck. Ready to argue anything at anytime, Graeme more often than not comes up with the right answer.

A dealer in all kinds of information, Bill always has the hot word on every- thing new and different. Handy when it comes to things mechanical, he ' s right at home tinkering with an engine or whipping up a model hydroplane. Ever since Joyce came along, Bill has been strictly a stag party man, both here and abroad. On cruise he was in regular attendance at every reception from Oslo to the Canary Islands. On the athletic side, he spends his winters down backstroking in the cauldron of chlorine for the glory of CGA. The only man who liked Cape May (because it was near home), Bill has dreams of being stationed there as permanent finance officer; but he will admit that Station Able isn ' t TOO far from Jersey anyway.

His tall, dark, and handsome assets have been a complete waste in and around New London — thanks to a ball and chain back in native Michigan. The necessity of " checking in " every day, in addition to studying, curtailed a career on the gridiron that was well under way swab year. Second class year he devoted many hours slapping papier- mache and plaster on our big ring getting it to look like the genuine article. As a carryover from the ring dance, he joined the regular dance committee first class year. Strictly a family man, Walt ' s reading is confined to " Cheaper by the Dozen " and " How to support a baseball team on Ensign ' s pay " . 5Ey 123 Charles Ed ard Mathieu Bud grew up (as high as he got) near Chicago, but now claims Tampa is the greatest place in the U.

It is common belief that he ' s an athlete in spite of those wierd shaped legs, even though it might well be because of them. With a yen to gab, he ' s ready to go on any subject; but don ' t ask him about his love life because you ' ll never get him stopped.

Due to reverse gearing, Fayette has been able to set records and continually lead the swimming team to the tune of the back stroke in Newt ' s Bath Tub. At the tender age of six he fell in love with the sea by paddling a boat around his rain filled yard; in due time he graduated to big boating for enjoyment. His Thermi- onic finger has made it possible for the sailing team to tell the water temperature after his dingy filled and sunk. His common reply to a question of the temperature has been, " Gad it ' s cold! " We will remember him as the fellow who passed his entrance physical exam by eating five pounds of bananas, and drinking an equal quantity of water.

They all find that porcupine style crew cut irresistible. Rog is an ardent sports fan, happiest when l)ooing the referee, and holds his own in any elbow game of PE bucketball. All the talk about cultural improvement fell on deaf ears in his case, as he proposes to be a die-hard grease monkey. Since he took over as manager of the sailing team, it has been necessary for him to make all the team trips — how could they go to yacht club parties without their manager? Most typical conversations go: " Say, have you heard the one about, . . . " and " Who, me? I ' m as pure as the driven snow.

Each fall has found him in their carrying a wicked water bucket, and each winter has him industriously counting, cleaning, and repairing equip- ment. Affectionately tagged " Doll " by some friends from the clan up the road, Ed has a way with the college girls which is all his own, even though it ' s rumored that he visits Elizabeth City every leave.

A self-confirmed salt, Newc spends his every free moment down on the river sailing everything from dinghy on up; on cruise he impressed all of us with his know how when it came to a job that was strictly " square rigger seamanship " . A staunch member of the Drill Platoon for three years, Newc ' s hopes for a real snappy outfit this year crumbled when he just couldn ' t persuade enough swabs that it was a worthwhile venture. After this defeat he retired to the First Class Billiard Society as one of the cigar chewing regulars.

After entering the Academy with the class of ' 52 Harry spent so much of his time as photographer for Surf ' n Storm, Tide Rips, and various other publications, that after a year and a half he found himself a member of ' 53. Since then he has virtually forsaken the art, except for a little business during first class year. A lover of fast cars and women, H.

Besides the endurance necessary for a distance runner, he displayed phenominal speed in breaking the cadet record for the half mile, to take his place with the Academy ' s greats. In the winter, when the snow gets too deep to run, Swede becomes the terror of the PE bucketball courts and the ping pong and pool tables.

A weekend ' s greatest pleasure, says he, is introducing some young lady to ways of the sea and its lore. Nautically minded, he not only knows a great deal about practical seamanship, but also has refined his Dixie vocabulary to include every Yankee Sailing term existing.

Dean has become an expert on where to go, what to do, and what to get in every port the " Eagle " has visited since Swab cruise of ' 48.

As a lover he has no season; from WMI juniors to airline hostesses, he has charmed them all. Paul has a word for everyone, but since the word depends on his mood it is advisable to begin a conversation with caution.

For all sixty-six inches of him, he ' s an athlete; in spite of size he quarterbacked the JV ' s. He coxswained the second class boat crew which broke the traditional first class winning record; he crewed in that infamous inter-company sailing meet, and didn ' t finish last. For the past four years, Ernie has been THE artist at the Academy. Neither his cartoons in Surf ' n Storm, nor the ring he designed, nor the Ring Dance for which he did many of the decorations will soon be forgotten by the members of ' 53. In between times he is available for advice on life, love, and politics. We agree, Nat, you have a swell guy. The title " best all around athlete of the class " goes, without doubt, to that Ijairel chested Californian, Bill Russell. Participating and starring in football, basketball, and baseball, since we first came here, Russ has displayed a cool and skillful form that has been equaled by few others. A staunch belief in the finer things in life has caused some trouble along the lines of academic accomplishments, but never quite enough to present a serious problem. This same belief has also resulted in a " love ' em and leave ' em " approach to the female situation. Bill has done that all the way from San Rafael to Paris and back again. An extrovert of the first order.

That strong, silent look has fooled many people — take care, or he ' ll sell you the Brooklyn Bridge without saying more than a dozen words. There have been two major facets to his extra-curricular activities. Best known is his slicing game of ping-pong. Many hours have been spent with paddle in hand, and there are few who have beat him.

Well, it ' s a complicated explanation which always ends in the fabrication of a story about camels and dromedaries, so you might as well not bother to ask. We can say that he is an Army brat who found his home in the Coast Guard. Wade ' s first year at CGA was spent in wearing himself out with football, basketball, and track. Then the strain became too great, and, except for ruiming the hurdles each spring, he has confined himself to afternoon siestas and various less strenuous sports. Although his approach is always begun with a sheepish. " ' I ' m just a little boy " look, no girl he has dated will report finding him bashful. They know him at Conn.

From the moment we first saw him we knew we had something unique: a poor man ' s Bob Hope, a self-styled Ben Hogan, a bona fide " sand peep " , and a budding Grantland Rice. We will never forget his pro- posals on third class cruise, the time he was kicked off the line at Cape May for wasting ammunition, his baseball enthusiasm, the editions of " The Howling Gale " he co-edited, and last but not least, his futile efforts to drink us under the table.

Quiet by nature, he personifies the old adage that actions speak louder than words. While usually content to admire beautiful girls from afar, Nat is no discredit to the theory that a swiftly receding hairline marks all great lovers. Put on a stack of Doris Day records, give Spad a pool cue, and he will take on all comers. His only wish is that gyroscopic pool tables will someday become standard wardroom fixtures. Nat Chris Spadaf ora 143 All of Tin Pan alley in its greatest moments of inspiration can ' t produce lyrics com- parably expressive to those of the Black Bavarian. Armed only with a vibrant voice and souped-up Uke (Gott n ' Himmel, forty-eight bucks!) he has given us some serenades beyond description. His latest venture is learning to play an accordion from the instruction book. Dutch gained distinction as the man with the double E book on our final cruise, but to no avail — he still managed to short circuit the efforts of the juice department. The end of Academy boxing saw Fred hanging up his gloves and proclaiming himself 154 pound champ with five uncontested seasons to his credit, and his own radiator as a prize. Spare hours have been spent indulging in his favorite sport, sleeping — " I was born tired " . However gloomy the day might be for him, Fred maintains the capacity to rebound with the funny side of his frustration. Fredrie Christian Sponholz 144 Charlie, Chuck, Chip, and Stat all delineate the same person: ' 53 ' s own CeeGee (alias Hun tsfutsi) ; the roughest football player the Academy has had in many years, and not the gentlest of wrestlers. Though it ' s quite easy to be misled by an apparently quiet nature, in reality he is one of the liveliest of party goers, ready to go at any time of the day or night. Accompanied by his mellow sax, he has been a part of every one of the many musical combos we have seen come and go. The abundant growth of blonde foliage atop his head has made him the envy of a goodly number of his class- mates, and even girls have been known to be jealous of those waves and curls. Orig- inally a dashing Casanova, Chuck has long since been hog-tied good and proper by the cutest little gal in Mineola, L. I. He is forced to admit that now he can only reminisce about PAST escapades ' round the world. Charles G. Stadtlander 145 AUk, ■? " l- ' " Who ' s that queen? " " She ' s with Stevens " . That ' s the way it has usually been. We ' ve prodded and probed, but as yet have never found out how Ray managed to have such consistently good luck with the fair sex. Since we can remember, the " Teregram " hasn ' t left the dock without him. He was the first member of the class to be qualified to sail her, and incidentally the first to scrape bottom with her. Though he has sailed in every race the Teregram has been in, he ' s not restricted to schooners, and com- petes effectively with anything under sail; he ' s a three-letter skipper at Jacobs Rock. His aquatic nature found another outlet in swimming, splashing his way through many an otherwise dull afternoon. With a head start, by virtue of hours of practice in pre- Academy days, he never found it difficult to finish on top of the inter-company tennis matches. Undaunted by shafts and gaffs, Ray keeps his smile through all. I Raymond Lo e Stevens 146 Albert Glenn Stirling Fi If you are looking for Al Stirling, you can bet your last twelve cents that he is either catching a bus out Ocean Avenue, or is in his room thinking up ways to get more liberty. When forced to stay within the confines of CGA, he manages to keep himself happy with a tre-men-jus assortment of pocket novels. His consumption of these is so large, that nearly all the novels now in circulation at the Academy have his name stamped across the cover. Even though he makes sure that his social and literary ramblings consume every possible free moment, Al still manages to maintain a position well up near the top academically. Once active with both the sailing and swim- ming teams, he eventually enlisted in the Radiator Club ( he heard that lack of exer- cise is a good way to put on weight), and, except for fruitless efforts to dominate the pool table, he has expended no energy in other channels. David E. Stryf feler David rm-just-a-farm-boy-at-heart Stryffeler came out of the corn and wheat fields of Ohio to take his place at CGA. As Athletes go, he is right at the top of the class. Playing end for Coach Nel ' s big blue, he was known for superb blocking, and in the last couple of years blossomed into an excellent pass receiver. Not to be confined to the gridiron, Stryff took to the mats and starred in the 177 pound class. Come spring he relaxes in Charlie Company ' s outfield. Never able to crowd enough sleep in between taps and reveille, Dave sn eaks in a few extra winks during our more exciting classes. The result is somewhat dubious; more than once he ' s been revived only after slipping gracefully to the deck. The bane of any stamp and nickle man, Stryff keeps the local and College talent guessing who will be next; all he really wants is a nice farm girl who doesn ' t mind his cigars ... " I don ' t even inhale " . 148 m {RAINTR MASS. Tha RVcademy ien ' sselaer PolvtecHic Institute A swashbuckler from way back, Gene came to the Academy via the Navy and RPI. He has become famous over the years for (if nothing else) his constant maiming of the opposition on the inter-company gridiron. Thriving on neither tremendous numbers of itsybitsy particles, nor F equals MA, ' 53 ' s number one procurer of weekends lives for the finer things of life. Weekends are devoted to a certain special blonde, and those long days in between are spent wading through book after book of every variety. When it comes to a nose for a buck. Gene is a bloodhound at heart. In Copenhagen he hitched a ride on Fox ' s motorcycle; after a 4 A.M. search for a brewery, Gene ended up talking the local gendarme out of jugging the both of them for chasing girls with their machine. An easy mixer, the Bull vastly prefers the easy going life exemplified by: " Work a little, live a lot " . Eugene F. Trainor 149 i ' la 1! — ' The first Robert E. Lee to graduate from CGA stands true to his name in defending the South to his last breath. Actually he hails from only two miles south of the Mason-Dixon line, and is a staunch praiser of " them thar mountains " . The only con- cession he will make to the Yankees is on the subject of girls. Tied down a couple of years ago by a local lass, he spent first class year commuting to Boston to keep watch on Tufts College. Bob has put in a good many hours of hard work down at Billard Hall, the results of which we ' ve seen at the monthly formals. His unbeatable combination of ideas and energy has succeeded in overcoming all obstacles to make each dance different and exciting. The track team, too, has benefited from the indus- try displayed as their manager the last two years. In short, Bob is the kind of guy we ' ll all appreciate working with. Robert E. Lee West 150 m KKfW)ALL, WISC University of Wi Tide Ripa Wsm Utor P For on e whose prime vanity is being practical, and who, with but slight provocation, is apt to sputter " Come on now, let ' s face facts " , Lloyd has expended a good deal of kinetic energy in such unrewarding ventures as this publication. More, he insists, than an occasional weekend in New York (for business) justifies. As proof of his good judgment he is likely to forward the claim of being the only man in the class who consistently made money playing a two-bit football pool. In four years his greatest literary achievement has been a plagiarism, " Yeh! Yeh! It ' s a red horse " , which has become the class symbol of disillusionment. While at his best in a card game, bull session, or discussion of politics, his precedence number attests to no mean academic ability. In weaker moments, though, he will admit to being just a Wisconsin farmer who " left the farm for the sea " . Llo d O. Westphal 151 i m I im Woj, truly the versatile lad — athlete of note, polka dancer par excellence, connois- seur of fine brews. As a gentleman of the night he will live long in infamy as the man who fixed the soap box derby. His collection of sea stories is based on myriad activities along uncharted courses which have led to nicknames as legion as his female admirers. Though he laughs at love, he ' s had some mighty close calls, yet having never been done in — thanks to a glib tongue which draws its inspiration from that innate dread of matrimony. Fiery, tenacious, and a master of the acid wit, the Warsaw- Warrior is not to be taken lightly; his thoughts and words being sufficiently profound to rank him somewhat a sage among the class. Still, we will ever think of the big Pole as a handsome, happy-go-lucky joker with a zest for living, a critical eye for quail, and exceptional skill playing cribl)age. Theodore Joseph Wojnar 152 Glenn Franklin Young After graduation from famed Baltimore Poly, Glenn spent a leisure year as a carefree civilian, then journeyed to New London to become one of ' 53 ' s notables. No slouch in athletics, he was an ace trotter with both the Tiack and Cross Country teams for the first couple years. Then old man injury got the best of him and he had to retire to managership of harriers. He also took to hurling for Charlie Company and led them to two consecutive softball championships. Glenn became well known to the Baltimore police one New Year ' s eve when they hauled him in for shooting rabbits in the city park. Since then he has confined his adventuring to mechanizing the art of making out. Leaving no grass growing under his feet, he approaches with " Haven ' t I seen you some- where before? " , and departs with " See you around, sometime " . We ' ve seen a lot of Glenn, and thirty years from now he ' ll be just as welcome as ever. 153 1i m David T. Zurzoski When Little David blew in from Buffalo he immediately impressed us as being one of those fortunate few to whom academic excellence comes easily. When it come to things electric, this lad, who is rumored to be the first cadet to hide a small receiving set in the heel of his left work shoe, makes Ampere look like a hacker. Dave ' s " little wonder " cigarette machine (packs ' em just right) has long been a source of both amazement and discouragement to the hordes of cigarette leeches who run rampant through these hallowed halls. Despite a blast at his ego in the form of three Dear John ' s after a Christmas leave, he carried on, and finally found his " Million Dollar Baby in the Five and Ten Cent Store " . A ready laugh and sense of humor mark him as a happy-go-lucky guy; and speaking of laughs, his special chuckle (Tst-Tst) has attained unparalleled notoriety. YORK o olytecnnif High Schoo Sfdlins 154 George P. Lord Skip is a home town boy who has spent the best part of liis life down on the river sailing and out in the sound gathering lobsters from whoever ' s pots he found. A great man for a bull session he could top any story or joke he heard. George was always ready to fix someone up with one of the local girls; we ' ve spent many an incongruous evening at the beach parties and other shindigs he becam e famous for. Sunday morning at 0010 Skip ' s car was a familiar and welcome sight burning up the pavement between Ocean Beach and the Academy — double loaded with tardy cadets. He always made it though, and always will; in anything he does. M AXHATTAX BEACH EXTEXSIOX With us for three years, Jim and Skip were as much a part of the class as two people could be. When they left to recuperate from tuberculosis we knew they wouldn ' t graduate with us, but they will always be a part of ' 53. Jameis H. Shelton A year of hiking with the Infantry convinced Jim that the wardroom life was for him. Raised in Trenton, New Jersey where " they have an ordinance to cover everything " , he was well prepared for the regulated life at CGA. Greatly respected for his quiet, composed, and good natured manner, Shelt easily weathered the ups and downs of the Academy. Ready for a party anything, Jim ' s Irish tenor would bloom forth just as soon as he was able to lubricate his vocal cords. Athleticwise he was up on the top of Nitchman ' s bucket squad, leaving quite a void when he departed; a void felt not only in the gym but in ' 53 as well. mpm ■ li : .f f Bait Exec — Babcock Batt Opp — Nelson Batt Cdr Batt Supply — Daniels Batt Adj — Anderson -Keyzer CADET BATTALIOIV ORGANIZATION The problem of organization at the Academy has, as far as Cadets are concerned, been solved by means of a Battalion Organization. The Bat- talion is not just a large drill unit, but rather its mission is the everyday guidance and control of Cadets, individually and collectively. We are awakened each morning by a bugler whose duties and methods are prescribed through the Battalion System; formations other than for class are by company; messing and rooming are by company; and at night we are lullabied to sleep by another bugler provided by the same system. The fourth class is the rockpile upon which this whole or- ganization is based. Above them are the third class with limited power and responsibility; and then the second class with broader functions; and finally the first class bearing the responsibility of discipline of the battalion.

We got it — fireworks and fifty on the Fourth, Cape May and weekends in Wildwood, li ' l ole Southern belles in E City, and finally, a batch of new Swabs. R. B. BACON T. F. BLAIR S. C. BLOCH W. F.

Then, June Week and the year of servitude was over — at last the leisurely life of upperclassmen was to be ours! (False illusions soon to be exploded by the cruise.) Looking back on esca- pades in Europe, gave us a certain satisfaction to take with us on Summer Leave. September, and a new " Swab " class to lord it over. Too soon came the realization that we were " nothing but Swabs with ' carry on ' " . As the year progressed we added to our masses of accumulated knowledge, the experience needed to become upperclassmen. R. N. ABRAHAMS K. D. ALBRITTON G. G. ALLEN D. D. ANDERSON J. N. ANDRASSY P. H.

While having grown quite accustomed to military life, we can still gaze out the window and recall when we looked in the other direction. The memories are fad- ing, though, amid the confusion of barracks life as a Swab. Looking back, we seem to have come a long way since we raised our arms to be sworn in. Things seem different now; with a cruise to Bermuda and a set of final exams taken in stride. It is not strange that our outlooks should be broadened. Look- ing ahead, we see Graduation Day, a stripe so big it weights our arms down, and the dis- tinction of being shellbacks. ■fill f i»i4 f vi|-| p-|ii lf ;t|ifi«i ft f f f f • mm- ' m.

X r i Starting out the season with the " burden " of an undefeated football team in fifty-one hanging over their heads, the " Bears " opened the fifty-two gridiron campaign as " team to beat " . Local, state, and even some of the national pre-season fore- casters rated the big blue team high in the stand- ings of New England Small Colleges. Though, in the end, the record they made did not equal that of last year, it was still a season of which the Corps and all Coast Guard followers could well be proud.

Captain Nat Spadafora " Mr. Football ' 53 " Slow starting in their opening game against Norwich, the Kaydets showed tremendous offen- sive power in the second half, and went on to roll up an impressive 41-20 victory. Colby ' s Mules surprised the Bears with a stubborn de- fense in the second game, but the Big Blue ground out a 20-18 win and continued undefeated. Home- coming Day with all the old grads and brass back to see how the place had changed since " they were cadets " , set the scene for the high-light game of the season; the Wesleyan Cardinals came to the banks of the Thames with an undefeated team and confidence to spare, but the determined Bears turned it into a 40-7 rout. 177 On a dreary Saturday at Amherst, Mass., the Academy ' s winning streak snapped at 11 as the Lord Jeffs handed us our first loss of the season, 33-14. In mitigation it might be added that Cap- tain Nat Spadafora saw limited service against Amherst due to an injury suffered in practice the week before, and as a result the Bear offensive was definitely hampered. The start of a successful team tackle. 178 FOOTBALL 1952 SEASON Coast Guard 41 Coast Guard 20 Coast Guard 40 Coast Guard 14 Coast Guard 10 Coast Guard Coast Guard 49 Norwich 20 Colby 18 Wesleyan 7 Amherst 33 Worcester 2 Trinity 20 Rensselaer 12 Rit Cueroni drives to a first down against Norwich CG version of THE FOUR HORSEMEN Taking their cue from Amherst, the Blue team turned spoilers in their next outing and wrecked Worcester ' s homecoming with a 10-2 win, but in the next start the Kaydets suffered their first " white-washing " in two years when they dropped a 20-0 verdict to the Trinity Hilltoppers. In the last contest the team regained their early season form and delighted a Secretary ' s Day crowd with a 49-12 rout over RPL At the final whistle of the RPI game thirteen first classmen said farewell to collegiate football ; among them Captain Nat Spadafora, one of the greatest gridiron stars in the Academy ' s football history. Coach Nitchman and his staff will sorely miss the lads of ' 53 next season, for along with their outstanding ability, they also had a binding spirit and tremendous will to win which will be hard to duplicate. 179 BASKETBALL Having lost only one man from last year ' s var- sity, the outlook was bright as the season got underway, but an inability to win on the road, and academic difficulties by two of the " First Class Five " held the record to 9-6, which still equalled the best that we had seen in our four years of Cadet life. The starting line-up for the first half of the season found Rin Keyzer, Bob Benson, and Mike Boggs as the big men under the boards, with Bud Mathieu and Bill Russell working the ball in from the outside. Gary Erekson, the number six man on the team capably filled in wherever he was needed during the early games, and then took over Mike Boggs ' position following an academic move at mid-season. Rin Keyzer Bud Mathieu Bob Benson Bill Russell Mike Boggs In addition to Erekson, the third class also con- tributed Ross Day and Ted Gerken while the fourth class gave us some fine ball players in Ernie Allen, Dave Heine, Larry Kindbom, and Dick Rybacki to round out the squad. In addition to their fill in duties on the varsity the under- classmen above formed a nucleus for the JV squad that will graduate to the first string line-up under Gary Erekson ' s leadership next fall. This year the squad had no captain until a post season election installed Bill Russell to the office. Throughout the season the " Nitchmen " were led by the five first classmen who acted as co-captains. Seemingly a cumbersome arrangement, the results nevertheless show its success. 180 To summarize the season, the " Bears " split their first ten games, and then closed out the year by winning four of their last five tilts. Russ paved the way in the scoring column, but all five of the first classmen averaged in the double figures, as the team combined to give the Academy one of the most point productive teams in years. Three times the " Big Blue " climbed above the 80 point mark, and in the highlight game of the season rolled to a 94-82 win over Trinity. A fast drive in nets two more Bud drives under For a little guy that ' s some jump Graduation will strip the team of Benny ' s deadly set shots, Keyz ' s fabulous hooks, Mike ' s rebounding, Russ ' s one handed push shots from the outside, and Matty ' s spectacular defensive guarding.

The team, captained by Ernie Rowland and Rog Holmes and ably coached by Mr. Newton, gave good competition in all the meets but were able to score the points to win only against Worcester. The difficulty seems to stem from a lack of depth in the various events. Graduation will leave the team without Rowland, Holmes, Merritt, and Linn, all consistent point- getters. But, with the experience the team gained this year and the depth added by a new class, we can say with confidence, " Wait ' til next year.

The team got off to a slow start taking their lumps in stride, but once in gear they were tough to beat. In the New Englands Capt. Faucher, Dave Stryffeler, and Al Reif brought home the bacon with a first, second, and third respectively. Along with Faucher and Stryffeler the bears will lose Willie King, Bud Foster, and Manager Graeme Mann, but Coach Hammer ' s expert guid- ance should lead to future victorious seasons.

The Harriers then went on to ring up three more wins on the home course before winding up the season with a loss to Wesleyan, and a record of four wins and three losses. Bud Foster and Capt.

Bob West, Coach Newton, Capt. Walt Paulsen Stars of ' 53 The track team presents a paradoxical situa- tion in Academy sports: while seemingly the underdog it has the most participants of any major sport. The problematical situation stems in part from the lack of a suitable track at the Academy, resulting in a schedule of all meets away which are attended by almost no cadets except participants. There is never a shortage of spirit, only experi- ence. While the team boasts no exceptional records to date, they can well be proud of a r ecord improving annually. Two outstanding members from last year who ' ll be pacing the Bears are Captain Walt Paulsen, and Hal Olson, both out for distance events and records. The biggest team of the Academy n 187 As this volume goes to press the baseball team is preparing for what could be one of its best seasons on record. The ten game schedule in- cludes some heavy opposition in Wesleyan, Trin- ity, MIT, Conn, and Mass, but is counter-balanced by a host of fine ballplayers from last year ' s varsity and some promising swab candidates. The team will be led by Rit Cueroni, one of the smoothest fielding second baseman we ' ve seen in college ball. Bill Reilly will capably hold down third base or center field and Bobby Benson will be Coach Foye ' s number one utility man. The remainder of the lineup will find Bobby Hollings- worth taking care of the backstopping, Tom Latham at first. Bob Johanson at short, Spence Jennings in left, and Bob Wilson in right.

PISTOL In most of the sports that the Academy com- petes in, there is somewhat of a restriction to a small college circuit, but Pistol has always been able to hold its own, and then some, in any com- petition. Two years back CGA won the title of Intercollegiate Champs, and though this season ' s Co-captains Dan Briganti and Bill Clark 190 RIFLE Rifle is another sport where CGA needs no handicap when it comes to competition, and this year ' s team proved it as they won the Southern New England College Rifle League, and only dropped two out of sixteen shoulder-to-shoulder matches with the best of ' em. In the National ' s this season, the Academy placed second by one point ' s difference to MIT in the New England Division fire-offs, but as we go to the printer the results are not in as to what our national ranking is. In the past it has been an off year when it hasn ' t been in the top twenty. Captain Paul Breed led the team in both spirit and action, as he consistently was high man; but one man can ' t make a team, and a check of the records will show that he received strong support from Bernie Hoyland, Jim Doughty, Swick Swickly, Cliff Hartelius, and John Saunders. The team will lose Paul and Bernie with grad- uation, but Coach Crowley has a fine nucleus around which to build next year ' s championship team. • Back Row: LT.

Getting ready for another Stewart, Wagner, I den (Capt.) , and Little field {Commodore} Each afternoon from early September until mid-November, and then from early Spring until graduation, a select group of seafarers trudge down to Jacob ' s Rock for an afternoon sail on the beautiful Thames. To them, " The sea and its lore " means more than a summer cruise to Europe. The ever-present hazard of an untimely bath in icy waters with an icier wind blowing never seems to dampen their spirits as they pre- pare for weekend meets with New England ' s finest. Their efforts have most certainly not been in vain; they have always finished on the top, and have an enviable collection of trophies to attest to their prowess in this ancient art. 192 w Pinching to get that extra tenth of a knot Captain of this year ' s aggregation, and one of the club ' s leading skippers, is Bobby Iden. With Dick Littlefield, the team ' s Commodore, as his crew, he showed many another college the way it ' s done in a seagoing outfit. George Wagner and Crook Stewart formed a second unbeatable com- bination. Among the teams accomplishments for the season were: winning the Coast Guard Hex- agonal, and finishing second in the Jack Wood Trophy Pentagonal and the Danmark Trophy Regatta. Coaches Wagner and Swint, while bemoaning the loss of Iden, Littlefield, Fox, Pledger, Merritt, and Stevens through graduation, still realize that in Wagner, Stewart, Welsh, Chanaud, Gerken, Green, and the rest of the boys, they have a team that should continue to dominate the sailing field in New England. 193 J I. mw iMffleufaf %s STAFF Lloyd Westphal — Editor-in-Chiej. . . .

The jjeople on the other side of the fence are in the dark until the wheels in the publicity office start spewing forth the leaflets, booklets, articles, releases, and pictures that are shoved down the unsuspecting public ' s throat. There seems to be more than enough work to keep the lads on their toes. Every fall the sur- rounding states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and our own Connecticut, are covered by groups of first and second classmen procuring new cadets. There are sport events to photograph, record and distribute; there are a variety of releases to be sent to each cadet ' s podunk telling the folks back home just how little boy blue is doing; and there are a hundred and one events of special interest to be mailed out to anyone inteiested (and some who are neutral). As chairman, Dan Collussy directed the com- mittee ' s overall policy (no Yankee propaganda) aided by Chuck Hahn. Graeme Mann and Cata- lano ran procurement; Levine headed the special services department; and Biondo kept the sports news pouring out to the newspapers on the outside. The day that you see a rejuvenated Graf Zep- pelin floating overhead with " Go Coast Guard " painted on the side in twenty foot letters, you will know the publicity committee has been at it again. " The Greatest Academy in the best oj all possible worlds " — Press Release 200 .v ' Editors: W. E. Smith, Benson, Cueroni A dull Thursday nuclear physics class back in September gave two of our " academic giants " , Bob Benson and Wee Smith, a chance to discuss the need for a sports bulletin which might bring the corps closer to CGA ' s athletic adventures, and stir up more spirit through the hallowed walls of Chase Hall. Their enthusiastic ideas met with immediate approval of the " front office " and on the following Monday, the first Gale went to press. Athlete of the Week polls, special edi- tions covering the season ' s sports, and general gossip from the gym filled the weekly editions. Rit Cueroni was added to the staff during the winter months while Benny was making head- lines with the basketball team. The Gale has become a welcome addition to cadet journalism. RIJIVXIXG LIGHT Every year, in the early part of July, about two hundred men start their service careers amidst what seems to be a mass of shouting, dust, confusion, and, in short, a king sized Chinese fire drill. Unfortunately, being new, they don ' t know much about the routine, and their more experienced friends expect them to know all about everything immediately. Some- time in the first few days, the Running Light is supposed to accomplish its primary mission — to teach them about the Coast Guard in general, about their school, and a little more about what is expected of a swab. As a secondary function, the book attempts to introduce the families and friends of cadets to our life. The latest issue of the book was very ably done by Ken Barrett and Roger Mowell with the help of their second class successors.

The light snow is going fast now that the rain has begun. The Chapel chimes are loud and clear even in the foggy air. There is a stream of black figures moving up the hill to the Chapel. Occasionally you can see a more colorful figure with the others. No longer do we have to make the long hike up to the College in snow and gale. Now we have a Chapel of our own. For twenty years the Academy needed a Chapel. It was finished in May of 1952, in time for Baccalaureate Ser- vice for the Class of ' 52. Paid for from the contributions of the friends and members of the Service, it stands as a living memorial to all the officers and men of the Coast Guard who have given their lives in the sei-vice of their country and humanity, in peace and war, from 1790 to today. Lt. Thomas Crotty, Class of 1934, who died in a Japanese prison camp after the fall of the Philippines, is an example of the men honored there. The list is long. The feats performed fill the pages of history. Soon it will be spring and then on one fine June day, rows of white uniformed men will march out of this Chapel again, and the sun will gleam on the bright gold stripes on their shoulders. Along with the congratulations and well wishes there will be the silent hand of those who have gone before, the shadow of those who had to go out, but didn ' t have to come back. 203 Ita w The Golden Throats CHOIR The truly faithful of the Academy singing organizations belong to the Choir; no one else would have the courage to rise early, as we do, on Sunday morning, to gobble down the cold eggs and tomato juice, dash to a hasty practice in the Rec Hall and then struggle up the hill to the Chapel. All the while knowing full well that once seated in the choir loft, no one would dare sneak a snooze for the obvious spectacle that it would cause. Week after week Chief Warrant Officer George H. Jenks, Jr., the choir director, has his trying moments with the group whose attendance can never be depended upon. If at Friday evening rehearsal he is asked " What are we going to sing Sunday? " he answers with a snicker " Oh, something easy — if I can only find it " . Every year around Christmas time, when we feel that the Corps is getting tired of the same old thing, we connive to get the girls of the Conn College Choir to come down and give the front pew sitters something new to look at. Needless to say, to maintain the dignity of the inspiring Christmas services in the Chapel, the guys and gals only sing together — not sit togetiier. This is still CCA. 204 p . I GLEE CLUB Every time that there is a musical evening at the Academy every one attends with the hope that he will be surprised to find that the Glee Club is not on the program. In spite of all the groaners and crooners that show up for practice twice a week, Chief Warrant Officer George H. Jenks, Jr. still hopes that some day he will get himself a singing group. As a matter of fact he even took a special schooling, while we loafed in the Scandinavian summertime, for Madrigal singing. Now Mr. Jenks has to agree that our mad singing is pretty noteworthy. Wherever there is singing you will find the Choir because the Glee Club is only interested in TV appearances in New York or other lost week-ends, all for the price of as little activity as possible. The Glee Club never has to recruit members; the old ones merely spread lurid tales of joint operations with the girls Chorus of Conn College and the job is done. Seriously though, the Glee Club, presided over by Wendell Drig- gers and Ed Farmer, has done a fine job.

That night the Corps and public was treated to the performance of the second annual Cadet Minstrel Show. In the packed hours of Cadet life the boys somehow found time to work on the show; from September to the opening night. Last year we thought the show was good, but this year it was almost spectacular. Anyone who was in the jam- packed auditorium can testify to that. The show was directed by Jim Fournier; Ed Farmer selected the musical score, writing some of it himself. Tom Fennell bore the brunt of stage and production manager. Space prohibits listing all the many acts but these pictures are a sample. Dancing numbers by the End Women from the College added the zest to make a perfect show.

I The snake pit " I Six inches FORMAL DAXCES Still smiling after two hours CDR Lawrence, May I present AAA The Academy Athletic Association is composed of the Cadet Corps, selected officers, and honorary members such as former Secretary of the Treas- ury John W. Snyder. Supported by what we erroneously think are tre- mendously large dues, the AAA carries out Cadet varsity and intercompany athletic programs simi- lar to those of other schools. However, here intra- mural means company vs. company instead of fraternity vs. fraternity, but the spirit is the same, as are the broken and bruised bodies. Treas. Hahn, Pres. Stadtlander, Sec.

Each year along in May sometime the members of the club serve as host to the officers at the Academy in a huge banquet. After a good steak dinner all present settle down with free cigars to watch the highlight of the eve- ning: the skits put on by various classes and groups, the sole purpose of which is to make light of the eccentricities, habits, and pet theories of the officers present. Oddly the biggest laughs come from the officers who are " getting the needle " and enjoying it. Careful Henrietta, here come the apes ¥ «p I LT DORSKY LCDR SMITH LT CALDWELL LT BROWN LT MATT I LA MATHEMATICS For two years the math department held what amounted to absolute control over the future of ' 53. What with algebra, trigonometry, and analy- tic geometry in rapid succession, the tree list was continually loaded; we lost a lot of classmates and gained quite a few in the bargain. Typical February incident: " Where ' s Mr. Bates this morn- ing? " " Sir, you ])ilged him! " Third class year came and with it the double blow of calculus and mechanics. Calculus brought on regular Saturday morning do-or-die quizzes, while mechanics spelled weekend hours in McAl- lister Hall. As we have gone on to the more complex courses that involve complete knowledge of mathematics and especially calculus, we have all seen the abso- lute need for these subjects. Bearing this in mind it has, at times, seemed almost incredulous that we were, second class year, the last class to study differential equations. 214 m EIWGIIVEERIIVG I As the Academy ' s major subject, Engineering has taken up the bulk of our time for the past two years. It all started out in the fall of ' 50 with heat, electro-physics, and strength of mate- rials which ran continuously into the second semester as fluids, electricity, and properties of materials. Our greatest impression and appreciation of the department came during our first class cruise while assigned as " Eagle Engineers " . We were well prepared for the usual engine room routine of standing around for four hour watching an enlisted man run the show, but to the contrary we found ourselves pumping bilges, compressing air, switching oil, making water, and doing the many other duties that belong to the engineroom; all while the enlisted men watched us. Not only did we learn, but the great majority of us found actual enjoyment at being " bilge rats " . The return to the Academy brought on more subjects; power engineering, electronics, and naval architecture. We all realize by now just what we are as engineers, and a good many of us are look- ing forward to the day when we can bid farewell to the cold biting blasts of weather stations and return to the noise and smell of the " hole " .

After a few months of history and literature we wondered all the more. Just how did the study of the art and thea- ter of ancient Greece help one to become a better engineer? And who but a playwright gave a hoot for how the ancients wrung tears from the Athenians? However, under the guiding hand of Mr. Buron ( " You still flunk! " ) we progressed on to the Romans, and from there to European civilization, all the time facing long, long exams of such quality as: William VII was — (1) Chinese (2) Javanese (3) Persian (4) Martian. Swab year also meant a course in geography, geopolitics, or Red Sox indoctrination, all depend- ing on how you looked at it. We did get, though. a few red hot movies on the life of a typical native family in Thailand. By third class year we had advanced to the American scene — to adsorb Transcendentalism, Federalism, etc., etc. What a Transcendentalist was never became too clear, but at least we were able to tell who they were. Second class year we started out taking an economics course from CDR Lawrence, but with the coming of the new curriculum we had to give up our weekly bull sessions until the administra- tion course this last spring. We ' re fairly certain by now that it wasn ' t all a waste of time. During the whole course we never once saw a slide rule, had plenty of excuse to read Time and The New Yorker, and were exposed to an unforgetable taste of sheer liberalism that will never be gone from us. 216 SCIEIVCE Our first run in with the Science department came Swab summer when two-thirds of the class was given a refresher course in Chemistry. In reality it boiled down to learning the valences and resting on our high school laurels. After our short cruise we went on into what was rightfully called Analytical Experimental Physics. For two years we labored through Lemon and Ferrence continually baffled by such state- ments as: " . . . from which it follows that . . . " , " . . . from the calculus it may seem that . . . " , " The student can readily see that . . . " . Not with- standing the confusion of that which was missing, their was also that which was there. Again third class year we found ourselves exposed to the world of chemistry. Valences, ions, organics, valences, broken test tubes, dis- tillation (Sir, how can I make Scotch?), corro- sion, and valences. We did survive though, even through first class nucleonics, if only to be able to tell our grandchildren of the grand magic shows and Daddy ' s unmitigated puns. ..; ■ Back Row: LT Lutz, LT Bosnak, LCDR Bastow, CDR Hoag, LT Crowley Front Row: LT Unsinn, LT Rea, LCDR Perry, LT Davenport, LT Swint 217 M w Back Row: CGUN Rodman, LCDR Moore, LT Haley, LT Hammer Front Row: CDR Earle, CAPT Adams, LT Weston GIIXNERY, LAW, AND TACTICS As underclassmen we often wondered what spell the Gunnery Department held over the first class. As the first class we have found out only too well. We have devoted (not by choice) about one- third of our time this past year to the combined subject of gunnery, ordnance, law, ASW, and com- munications. At times they have been a lot of fun, but at other times it has been a problem to keep the eyelids from drooping. It stands to reason, though, that we will serve on a court-martial some day, and we can well expect to be either gunnery or communications officer within a short time; and what we haven ' t learned we at least know where to find. PING PING PING PING PING PING PING 218 - ijs te Little need be said concerning the importance of the Seamanship Department; the amount of space devoted to " sea life " in this book testifies of itself. One cannot deny the fact that, regard- less of the field in which we specialize, we will all be-first, last, and always — seamen. In the class room we spent hours on end dig- ging through Bowditch and Dutton learning how and why the stars get around and just what we could do about it. In addition we went through Knight ' s from cover to cover and quiz to quiz, then settled down first class year learning the rules of the road and " helpful hints to green Ensigns " . As we go out into the service, it is with pride that we can look back to our schooling " under canvas " .

Here every morning at nine sharp the sick and ailing began crowding the cor- ridors for the coveted ND, NF(L), and NE(L). In addition to handling the daily traffic of complaining cadets, the hospital handles our an- nual physicals, and ills of all the Coast Guard personnel in and around New London. The Corps usually assures outsiders that all we have in the way of doctors is vetenarians and butchers, but in reality we know that the relative small percent of Cadets off duty is a tribute to the entire medical staff. CAPT Carnes PHYSICAL EDIJCATIOIV Mr. Newton, Mr. Nitchman, CDR Merrir ian, HMC Steele Aside from the strenuous exertions of varsity sports, we have all, at one time or another, gone in for the king of Academy sports: P. E. Although now extinct for all but the fourth class, Physical Education meant three years of playing football like soccer, basketball like football, and swim- ming like drowning cats. There will never be anything comparable to the way we attacked each sport. Rules were made up as the game progressed, might always tri- umphed over right, and we had a helluva lot of fun doing it.

Attack, patrol, reconnaissance, or escort, Skyknight can handle them all. Aided by its radar eyes, the Skyknight can search out distant targets 24 hours a day. The pilot of this unique two-man, twin-jet, long-range fighter — guided by his radar operator — comes in on targets with split-hair accuracy ... to hit with both rockets and bullets. And although Skyknight approaches sonic speeds, its hydraulic flaps can slow it down for combat maneuvers or carrier landings. Th e carrier-based F3D Skyknight, now in volume production, is typical of Douglas leadership in aviation. Planes that can be mass-produced to fly further and faster with a bigger payload is the basic rule of Douglas design. Depend on DOUGLAS First in Aviation 229 M iM HERBERT J.

Before you decide on your next car see what Chevrolet has done to make driving safer All this happened some months ago. In a special research laboratory, engineers put a new Chevrolet body in a giant machine. It tried to twist that body until every square inch was under terrific strain. Another machine tried to bend it. This new body proved 10% more rigid even than last year ' s sturdy Chevrolet body. Out at the General Motors Proving Grounds, the research went on and on. Part after part was tested and compared. These tests proved that this was the safest Chevrolet ever built. It ' s a car we believe worthy of your careful consideration on every count. After all, doesn ' t it seem logical that the world ' s largest car producer can give you an extra measure of all the important qualities you want . . . and still save you money by making Chevrolet the lowest-priced line in its field! See your Chevrolet dealer. . . . Chevrolet Division of General Motors, Detroit 2, Michigan. New strength and safety in Chevrolet ' s fine Fisher Body. The new Chevrolet weighs up to 200 pounds more than other cars in its field. Much of this extra weight comes from Chevrolet ' s stronger, more rigid body construction. You con see all around you. The new one-piece curved wind- shield, and new, wide rear win- dows provide excellent visibility in all directions. Easier, smoother brakes. Chev- rolet brakes are the largest in the low-price field. And they ' ve been remarkably improved for 1953. Extra reserves of power when you need It. An entirely new 115-h.p. " Blue-Flame " engine is teamed with the new Powerglide. On gearshift models, you get the greatly advanced 108-h.p. " Thrift- King " engine. Both high-compres- sion engines bring you wonderful new performance and important savings in gasoline I Now you can have Power Steer- ing in a low-priced car. You park with finger-tip ease and steer with greater safety under all conditions. Optional at extra cost and avail- able on all models. Pass with greater safety with Chevrolet ' s new Powerglide. With the new Powerglide auto- matic transmission, you accelerate much faster. And you go much farther on every gallon of gas. ' Combination of Poivrrt tijr and 115-h.p.

J CHEVROLET MORE PEOPLE BUY CHEVROLETS THAN ANY OTHER CAR! 237 Tke Coast G uar t attJ Tlkc No ' ' ol Institute 1 Says Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King: " I have been a member of the U. S. Naval In- stitute for almost fifty years. I would urge all hands of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard to become members in order to keep in touch with the progress in any part of sea power. " • • • The U. S. Coast Guard is rightfully proud that it was the first of the Sea Services to be officially established by Act of Congress after the forma- tion of the present United States of America. The U. S. Naval Institute is equally proud of the fact that it was probably the first professional organization of its kind among the Armed Ser- vices. And today, just as from its original 1790 es- tablishment of " ten cutters for the purpose of en- forcing customs laws, " the Coast Guard has grown to its present impressive organization through consolidation with the Lighthouse Service, the Life Saving Service, the Bureau of Marine In- spection and Navigation, etc., so has the Naval Institute grown from a little " round-table " of a few dozen members to a nationwide profes- sional society of many, many thousands, and conducting a magazine and book publishing business of impressive proportions — not for profit, but " for the advancement of professional, literary, and scientific knowledge in the Navy. " Although the Coast Guard is in peacetime under the supervision of the Treasury Depart- ment, in times of emergency it becomes a part of the naval forces of the country. Hence the Naval Institute has long recognized this spe- cial bond and relationship, and extends the same membership privileges to Coast Guard personnel that it does to Navy and Marine Corps personnel. A high-ranking officer of the Coast Guard is traditionally one of the Members of the Board of Control of the Naval Institute. Naval Institute publications and manuals — such as Button ' s Navigation, The Bluejackets ' Manual, etc. — are in regular use in the Coast Guard. Coast Guard authors contribute some of the most important articles published in the Institute ' s monthly magazine, the U. S. Naval Institute Proceedings, and no recent copy of that magazine has appeared without a liberal inclu- sion of Coast Guard photographs. Believing firmly that close teamwork between the Navy and the Coast Guard is a vital essen- tial to the national security, and that the best way to attain such teamwork is better informa- tion and mutual understanding between the two Services, the U. S. Naval Institute extends a cordial invitation to all Coast Guard Personnel to become members or associate members of the Institute. Annual membership dues are the same in both cases — $3.00 per year and bring with it, without additional cost, a full year ' s subscription to the V. S. Naval Institute Pro- ceedings. Present net worth of the U. S. Naval Institute is in excess of $1,000,000, and there are no assessments other than the annual mem- bership dues. 238 ■n FaRREU llNES THE NEW NATIONAL mo-Sui Here now — the HRO Sixty — latest and greatest of a great series!

Then came early forms of compasses and astrolabes— primitive instruments— but at least they relieved navigators from utter dependency on the solar system. With the development of the Sperry Gyro-Compass early in the 20th Century, a new era was born ... an era that made navigation an exact science. While great improvements had been made in magnetic compasses and sextants, for the first time navigators had in the Gyro-Compass a true-north GYROSCOPE COMPJIHY DIVISION OF THE SPERRY CORPORATION seeking direction indicator free from the disturbing influences of electrical storms, ship ' s magnetism, variation and deviation due to local attraction. With the advent of loran and radar Sperry brought further peace of mind to the shipmaster in helping hin: surmount the hazards of heavy weather. Sperry Loran gives the modern mariner his position any- time, in all weather, anywhere within range of radio signals from land-based transmitting stations. Sperry Radar is his safeguard and protection when visi- bility is poor . . . permitting his ship to operate on schedule through fog, rain and darkness. Today, this group of three Sperry instruments— with their complementary auxiliaries— provides a vessel with a modern means of making navigation safer, simpler and more efficient.

Four generations of marine men have known Plymouth to be, not only a good rope, but the best rope . . . the most trustworthy because of its superior strength and consequent safety. In fact, repeated laboratory tests and actual use on sea and land have generally shown that Plymouth rope is even slroniier than it ' s claimed to he. Since 1824 the Plymouth Cordage Company has consistently adhered to the policy of manufacturing only quality cordage.
