As a tribute to an officer of such caliber, we of the class of 1956 dedicate this humble olume. A mere choice selec- tion of words, no matter how elegant or elaborate, cannot encom- pass our admiration, our thanks, our very special affinity to him. We, as does he, leave the Academy this summer of 1936. but in each is a nurtured hope that a little of him goes with us to our duty stations. In him we have found unique qualities of leader- ship, devotion to duty, and all that a class adviser should and could be. He required of us the work, conduct, and ideas of a man. and in turn he treated us as men. His guidance has paved the w ay on our tour through Academy life and by example he has fashioned a goal, breathing purpose into a service career. We thank you for all vou ha e done for us.

I ' uinne nillci A sound education in engineering is a basic re- quirement tor a Coast Guard Ottker. The Engineer- ing Department, ably sicippered by Captain George Phannemiiier, strives to fulfill this need. Courses olTered include engineering drawing, materials of engineering, strength of materials, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, electrical engineering, power engi- neering, electronics, naval architecture, ship design, and damage control. They are taught largeh b a group of regular otficers who have had engineering post-graduate training. These instructors combine practical proficiency with expert theoretical knowl- edge, and are therefore well equipped for their jobs. As an extra-curricular activity, they double in brass as cruise engineering officer-instructors, teaching us the fine points with respect to the operation of Mann , Moe, Mac. F.lmer, el. il.

Seller SccLm an Cfr " Hold one, check three, engine back one, rudder iimidships! " That ' s the outcome of our many hours spent in Seamanship classes. We can tell you the force of the current at Ambrose Channel any time of the day or night, get a fix with a loran line, a star line, and a sun line, or dock a 63 foot tug by " warping her around the end of a pier. " In fact, we could probably do all this in our sleep as we have had plenty of practice at it. The .Seamanship dcpartmenl led by Captain Zittel has taught us by more or less " osmosis " many phases of professional subjects. " Little Toot " has taught us by trial and error how a ship can be expected to act under the various influences of current and wind. Sights, sights, and more sights — that was the battle cry of the cruises. They always told us never to get behind. Have you ever seen a running fix wiiii only fifteen minutes between sun lines? Actually it was with quite a .sense of accomplish- ment that we completed our four year study of navi- gation and seamanship, for it gives one a sense of confidence not to be dependent on others to fmd and maneuver your way about on iIk- high seas which never forgive a mistake. 18 Capt. K. O. A. Zittel DOCK Ccipi. H. S. Sharp ■ " The trouble is ou " re tr ing to make it hard. " " It ' s so simple that it ' s difficult. " These are just two of the many statements that we have heard in our dealings with the Math department. Whether they were true or not is now immaterial; the fact remains that this was the vital course in our engineer- ing training. Without the perseverence of the instruc- tors who fought with us through algebra and trig, analytical geometry and calculus, we would not be here today. It seems that the high schools of today are not putting as much emphasis on math as is needed to undertake the high level engineering courses offered at the Academy. As a result, the Academy math department had a double burden — to bring us up to the starting point, then to take us on from there. Now that the battle smoke has cleared, we of " 56 realize that we owe a great debt to the math depart- ment in general and Captain Henr Sharp in par- ticular. Without the knowledge they instilled so pain- fully in us, we could never have made it to graduation. Our thanks to the Math department and our apologies for the manv troubles we have caused them.

Brockway, G. Corsu Down in the basement of the " build- " em-up " build- ing (Academy Hospital) lie the classrooms of the " tear- ' em-down " department (Ordnance. Ciunner , Tactics, Communications, and Law). All sorts of interesting things happen down here. In one room a fouled-up sailor named Marlin Spike is facing a cadet court-martial for the capers he has cut at the SDB. In another, an intent group of cadets are tracking an innocent sea-gull with a . " S " 3S under full director control. In still another, brightly colored little signal Hags whip out at a model yardarm, and model ships smartly execute a NINE TURN. Down the hill, in the waterfront anne. , cadet sonar teams arc engaged in mortal combat with submarines, to the battle cry of " Up Doppler. " Facinating business! These professional courses arc not all fun and amusement, however. We soon realized that learning to light — with either words or weapons — is a serious business. And we learned more than lighting in this tiepartment. We learned sometiiing of the code of an ollicer and gentleman, dedicated to the service of his country and humanity, which will remain with us always, l-or all these things, our sincere thanks to Captain C. ( ' . Knapp and his able and worthy assistants. 22 Capi. C. C. Knapp 3 HOSPITAL AND ARMORY BILLARD HALL, GYMNASIUM The time and place: Monday morning. 1100, Mac Hall. The event: Prof. Hoag " s magical science show. This was the method in which we were introduced to the Science Department in our " swab " year. It seemed like fun then. But it was only the beginning. From magic we progressed through physics, chem- istry, nucleonics, and meteorology — not without pain, anguish, and casualties. Ah, how could we ever get by without knowing the equation for the decay of an isotope? Why we can even read the weather maps that appear in the news- papers every night: in fact we can even draw them. All in all. the times spent in chem. lab were the most exciting and adventurous moments of our class- room work in this department. There was always a group of practicing " Pasteurs " in some secluded setup trying to concoct a new discovery in the explosive field. There are cork marks in the lab ceiling to attest to the success of these junior Einsteins. We emerged from the science classroom " head bloody but unbowed.

As bright and starry eyed " swabs " we delved into the mysteries of composition and the weekly essays. After struggling through our own puny elTorts we discovered the way the problem should be handled by reading the great author ' s works from Plato to Poe, interspersed with tiie events leading up to these masterpieces. When the others had finished with us. the hcail man, professor Lawrence, took over ami iried lo ingrain the fundamentals of Economics ami (nncrn- ment into our by now feeble minds. We are not quite sure just yet whether the (ieneral Studies Department succeeded in tiieir task of making us literate, but we are indeed giaieriil iluii ihcs even tried. We know that at times ilic task mnsi have seemed insurmountable. As we wander mei ihe sur- face of the earth in the years to come, jusi as our literary counterpart Ulysses, we will have only the fondest of memories of the General Studies Depart- ment. 26 . A. l.awrcwL mm HAMILTON HALL p R O T E S T A N T Chaplain R. C. Ilolu-nsiein Our Interlaith Memorial Chapel, high on the hill, has a light isible for miles. This light has warm and radiant glow that fills the hearts of all who pass this way. When the never-ending problems of cadets seem to overburden us, the Academy Chaplains are always on hand to give us a helping lift. Chaplain Hohenstein is stationed at the Academy, while Chaplain Nolan is stationed at the Training Station in Groton. The warmth and friendship that flows from these men is an inspiration and guiding light to all of us. Services at the Academy commence at eight o ' clock with the Catholic Mass. followed shortly thereafter by the Protestant Services. Cadets attend the service of their choice, either here or at any of the many churches in town. During the week the religious life of the cadets is not forgotten. There are midweek vesper services and occasional early morning masses, always well attended. A Bible study group meets weekly, and is conducted by cadets to further this very important aspect of Academy life. Here, as elsewhere in the service, it can be said that the Chaplains are a friend to all and are never too busy (as in that age old expression) to " punch your card. " Z Chaplain li . F.

Jr. T edccaC In order to carry out the rigorous Academy tniin- ing program, a cadet must keep in top notch physical condition. To assist in this, we are fortunate enough to have at the Academy a well equipped infirmary and a competent staff of U. S. Public Health Service personnel. Be it a stomach ache, a broken limb, an aching tooth, or a common cold, the " men in white " are ready to provide prompt and elTective treatment, including — if you ' re lucky — a most welcome NF(I.) to ease the pain. Capt. T. S. McGowan The Physical Education department strives to achieve that part of the Academy Mission which calls for the development of " sound bodies and stout hearts. " Headed up by CDR Johnny Merriman. the unofficial " dean " of New England small college sport, the department runs an extensive program of inter- collegiate and intramural sports, as well as scheduled physical education classes. The fact that the Acadenn is able to compete on equal terms with colleges man times its size attests to the elTectivcness of this de- partment. F . Dingwerth, C. Rhodes, R. O ' Leary, E. Camphel G.

Eve " Whats this, hot water in the cold water faucet and cold water in the hot water faucet? Send for the repair orderly. " And who does the repair orderly send for? The men of the Maintenance department, of course. We might call these workers of Captain Eve ' s yardforce, " the forgotten men of the Academy, " for all they ever receive from the cadets are com- plaints and more complaints. This select group of toilers is comprised of painters, plasterers, plumbers, electricians, and gardeners whose job it is to keep the Academy grounds and buildings in presentable shape — a mighty task with the " Dennis the Menaces " we have around here. Every Friday they ' re out on the football field liming the stripes which mark the advances of our team the ne.xt day. It ' s a cold day in New London when one cant hear the steady drone of a power lawn- mower competing with the steady barrage of his in- structor. We wish to thank the Maintenance depart- ment for the quietly effective " behind the scenes " service they have rendered us during these past four vears. sdiSnofUf R. Dixon. F. M. Fspelie We have all spent many hours in that wealth of knowledge, the library, rummaging through the stacks trying to find out how many rivets there are in the superstructure of the " Mackinaw " or some other detail for an unnecessarily bothersome second classman. As first class men we apportioned many of our " spare moments " to the Law section running down such ques- tions as, " What are the three points of view in Burns vs. Wilson concerning the relationship between Fed- eral courts and Courts-Martial. In preparing for moot courts, we always had to see if the defense counsel in a similar CM trial handled the case in the same manner we had planned. .Study hours and weekends afforded us the oppor- tunity to thumb through old copies of Life and Coronet silently cursing each razor cut page. There surely were an awful lot of interesting and information giving magazines to read when we had ihc time to browse. The Academy can well be proud of their librarv for it represents practically every field, fact or 1ictit)ii. science or fancy.

Whether they happened just an hour ago, or have be- come a part of the " Do you remember the time when . . .? " category, the humor of these incidents unfailingly increases with age. The exact details may be unclear or somewhat exaggerated but no one can deny that during four years at the Academy our class has accumulated many lasting memo- ries. Good, bad, but seldom indifferent, they will remain with us and be carried to New York, Seattle, Juneau, or wherever we shall begin our first assignment as Coast Guard officers. ,•1 (ill fiiiDi tlic hci;iiininv 4 e " Z cax The most hectic week in all Swab Year was very definitely the one which began on July 7, 1952. We came together from nearly all the forty-eight States and the Territories in civilian clothes and with civilian attitudes. The Class of 1956 stepped through the doors of Chase Hall into what seemed to be a veritable chaos and which we later learned to call a " storm " . Friends and families were, for the moment, for- gotten as we received our first introduction to cadet life. We gave our names and presented our orders to the double-striped welcoming committee. They in turn acquainted us with the first inkling of what was expected of a " swab " . " Double time " and " Square that corner! " became words to live with and above all the term " Sir! " rapidly entered our vocabulary if, perchance, it was not already there. Baggage in hand, and somewhat bewildered, we found our way to the rooms which were to be ours for the remainder of the summer. Meeting our room-mates somew hat softened the barrage of blows which had befallen us. They became our " wives " and generally also our best friends in the weeks to come. The chances are three to one that they are no longer with us, however. Nearly three hundred started out together; less than ninety are left. Stencilling our gear, making a " rack " the right way, and filling out forms (in triplicate of course), all took up major portions of the daily routine. The P. A. system never ceased to bellow with its latest " hot word " and bugle calls sent us into frenzied specula- tion as to what we were to do next. Mealtime saw us marching to the Reserve .Area where we became indoctrinated in proper Mess Hall etiquette for Fourth Classmen. Sitting on the forward three inches of our chairs, with heads up and eyes " in the boat " we learned to ask, " May I have the bread, please. Sir? " Table assignments increased our knowledge on the important items like the number of bricks in Satterlee Hall. News Reports and joke COasi (; 11(11(1 Day y J telling built up our speaking voices and somehow, despite it all, we managed to eat too. Back in the wing, the walls became bulkheads, the floors turned into decks, and the stairs were trans- formed into ladders. Our indoctrination never ceased and the days hardly seemed long enough to get every- thing done. We went to classes, inspections, five minute reports, and " Swabs out " , and in between, the mysteries of " spit-shined " shoes and good braces were explained, then enforced. The busy days pas.sed quickly, till on the rainiest weekend in August, our first liberty was granted. We went forth en masse to discover what New London had to oH er. The Coast Guard Day picnic came and went and soon it was time to leave for Bermuda and our first taste of the sea. The rapid glance at the two senior classes returning from their long cruise made us apprehensive as to what the future had in store. Back from our first taste of salt water, we found ourselves caught up in a new maelstrom of events. I he 1st and 3rd classes soon proved to be pretty much the same as our " Big Brothers " of the 2nd class. Our cla.ss schedule grew more difficult and we turned out for football and other Fall activities.

Right there some of us made per- manent friendships but others waited for the recep- tion at Connecticut College to select their dates for the first Academy formal. Monthly quizzes began all too soon and we began to realize the difficulty of doing college work with high school study habits. The slide rule, with its wonderful possibilities, be- came a familiar object and soon we could get most anything but right answers from our " slip sticks " . The President of the United States paid us a visit and we strived to make his review a good one. The members of his honor platoon wrote home at great lengths to describe just what it felt like to see a President across an open breech. Then Thanksgiving was upon us and for the lucky few who lived close by, a few hours at home. Most of us dreamed only of Christmas, and when it came we finally took home the stories of our adventures to our girls, our families, and the friends we had not seen in those six months. Every leave is a good one but nothing will ever compare with that first one. Yet we were not com- pletely sorry to return to the Academy, for here too were friends with whom we could share the ad en- tures of that wonderful two weeks. Three inches of chair had not enlarged any and we cut our corners just as squarely, but one thing had changed. Academics were beginning to take their toil and here and there a familiar face was missing. We realized then one of the most unpleasant features of our highly competitive existence. Everybody wasn ' t going to make it through four years, and good, true friendships suffered as our ranks thinned under the strain. Before we had time to become embittered at the system for this, the Inauguration Parade took ■ mmsm W ' ien ill RuDW A Swdh i (I Swdh i a Swah The " Do il youiwcll " club place in Washington, D. C. and tiie entire Corps went down b train to show the Militar and Naval Acad- emies what precision marching really meant. That long trek down Pennsylvania Avenue took something out of our shoulders and legs, but it also added immea- surably to our " Esprit de Corps " as the newspaper reports congratulated us on our superior appearance. The days till June grew shorter in number but longer individually as Spring brought 0545 reveille and morning rowing. Those icy bouts with stubborn davits were our forewarning that another cruise loomed up before us. Thick fog sometime impeded Navigation across the river until one coxswain dis- covered a unique method of finding his way. Will we ever forget the classic statement. " I hear a train. We must be near the bridge! " Fourth Class Year drew to a close with another set of final examinations and our first June Week. Of all the sensations that beset us at that time, the strongest was our feeling of pride in the thin gold stripe which transformed our sleeves into niuch-to- be-admircd objects by strangers, friends, the fairer sex, and especialJs oiirsehes. The Hamaks Siuii ' lv 40 3 e " Ifeeix I he l.onj: ( ruisc to liiropc put some salt dp our new stripes and helped to remove the feeling that it was all downhill the rest of the way. We began to realize that being an Upper Classman meant responsi- bility and hard work. But nothing could dim the thrill of the first time we met the new Swabs face to face, and realized that SIR was our rightful title. Summer Leave went all too quickly, but upon return to New London, it began to seem that the rest of the year was destined to pass rapidly also. We had our own rec-room and Class Spirit grew stronger. Those fabulous Class meetings, which saw the birth of new Ciceros and Patrick Henry ' s took on a more serious aspect as we pondered the problems of Indoctrination and Class policy. Within the Bat- talion setup, our power increased and we assisted at rifle " indoc " , granting to the Swabs the benefit of a full year ' s experience at " heaving around " . Formats found us with our own " comer " , and many of the drags began appearing on a steady basis. Drill was not forgotten as we treated the people of Middle- town to an exhibition of marching before the Wesleyan game. The football season passed quickly, with its Friday night rallies and the Saturday afternoon scram- bles for seats after the B.C. gave " Fall out! " Academically, this was a difficult year. Physics, Chemistry, and Calculus took their toll supplemented by the ever-present History courses. Coastwise Navi- gation and " Trunnion-tilting " occupied our evenings also, and the monthly and weekly Tree Lists were seldom free of Third Class names. We were more fully acquainted with the system now. and learned Makin ' H,0 Dog races just bore me! 41 ■p to enjo our Libert time ( v hen we had it ) to the fullest. The " Chapel " was a regular gathering place as our bent for social life increased. " Dear Johns " arrived galore and by the time Christmas Leave came, it was a lucky man who still had a " true love " wait- ing back home. But this Leave was no less enjoyed for all that, and we seemed to ourselves, as well as to others, much more mature than we had been twelve months previously. As the year 1954 was launched, it came as a shock to realize that our numbers had dwindled to half their original size. Hundredth Day soon arrived with its " storms " and further realization of the " good deals " that come with being the most junior class at the Academy. March Finals brought " Happy Hour " back into our lives and the Winter Term was over. The miniature Class rings we had coveted so long came at last, and in the Third Class section of the gym, we labored mightily to construct a suitable set- ting for their replica. Someone devised the idea of Class officers and dignitaries placing it in a piaster clam shell i)n a genuine sanded beach. Those of us that carried buckets of sand from dawn to dusk those days will never forgive him. With real sorrow, we noted the departure of our Class Advisor, Lt. Jenkins, who had done so much to guide us this far, but whose tour of duty at the Academy was complete. Drill became more rigorous as the June Week parades came in sight. The beauti- ful Spring weather proved disastrous for some, who yielded to Nature ' s soft breath and gave away their Miniatures with hardly a pang. At last it was ' " May — Haha! " and our second year was drawins to a close. We were inviied lo ' 55 ' s Ring Dance 43 The ininiaiures finally arrived! Visiting dignitaries Pleasant pastime I lie Ring Dance was a wonderful success and e en ihe sceptics admitted that the almost white sand made a fine contrast with the glowing " 56 ring. We " passed in review " countless times, or so it seemed, but the extra June Week liberty was wonderful. Finally, on a sun-drenched Friday afternoon, we found ourselves watching the Class of " 54 cross the stage on Jones Field. At that point, two years seemed to have passed quickly. With increased self satisfaction at having reached a milestone, wo shed our Third Class Blouses for the ones with two stripes, and prepared to uo on Leave.

We began to realize the power of good example. This was also the time for ' " projects " " as we wrote extended essays for the General Studies Depart- ment. But the acme of Second Class Summer was the time spent in Elizabeth City and Cape May. The B.O.Q. life at the E. City Air Station was our pleasant introduction to Coast Guard Aviation. We went on rescue missions and night flights and also took time out to enjoy the local hospitality. In Cape May we spent our mornings on the line, afternoons in the butts, and evenings downtown. Wildwood came onto our list of places to revisit someday, but to most men ' s minds, the " Lost Colony " ' should never have 10 liave clion al ' On ihe spoi " instnuiion ' i ' oiir k ' jt jool. MisU ' iJ ' A picnic is alnay.s inn been found. Our second cruise to Bermuda, with hurricane " Caror ' , rounded out the summer. Our Academic schedule became an Enghsh Major ' s nightmare that Fall. Mechanics, Thermodynamics. Strength ol ' Materials, and " double E " , ( Electrical Engineering), all helped to keep our slide rules sizzling. In the barracks, we were standing J.O.D. watches, and conducting the major part of Fourth Class Indoctrination. The man in charge of Colors took on a resemblance to a rubber ball. Some of us were Squad Leaders. " Honey Love " was number 1 on the Rec-room Hit Parade, with " Earth Angel " a close second. The Administration had undergone some changes. Admiral Hall retired, and Captain Roland left for the War College. RADM Mauerman became the new Superintendent and Captain Morine took over as Com- mandant of Cadets. For our new Class Advisor, we chose the Academy Legal Officer, Commander Earle. Annual hiiihliuhts, like the Newcomen Lecture and tlie visit of the Red Cross Bloodinohile. sapped our strength but at last snow fell outside the classrooms as well as in. It became time for the Christmas Egg Nog party, and as we stood in front of Hamilton Hall for our third Christmas " light up " , the Exam Week worries fell away and a feeling of accomplisiiment took their place. The remainder of the Second Class Year passed quickly. Academics were no less difficult and the " molluscan borers " and " free body diagrams " con- tinued to give us uneasy moments on quizzes. " H.M.S. Pinafore " was in production with our class providing actors, directors and stagehands. We began to take on executive roles in the many activities which are termed " extra-curricular " . Tide Rips " . ' 16 planning was underway and the final fittings for our Class Rings had been made.

However, it remained for First Class Year to complete our professional education in such fields as gunnery, communications, and military law. The engineering subjects were not forgotten as wc delved into electronics and the mysteries of the " super- het " . A few of us designed ships that were shaped like basketballs in the Naval Architecture course and tried to drive them with thirteen piston engines evolved in Power lab. Despite the many mistakes, however, we learned much and would not trade our education at the Academy for any other. Swords and cutlasses replaced rifles as we became cadet officers. Liberty time increased and — to those who earned them, weekends were granted. The second deck phones were in constant use and it began to seem that most everyone was engaged to be married or, at least was well on his way. We cheered our class athletic teams which consistentlv came throueh with (,uv di Moon Dot; and friend Where ' s llie fire ' . ' Infoniial a! Recieaiion Hall Examples of evolution victories.

The duties of the Cadet O.D. and Barracks Watch Officer fell to our classmates and from them or from the Battalion Staff would come the inevitable " holder of the bag " when things went wrong. We captained tlie Varsity athletic teams and kept the various com- mittees and activities running smoothly. A visit to the NAUTILUS afforded us an insight into what we might run up against in later years as A.S.W. officers. The Class meetings took on a serious note as we realized how close Graduation was and there were man things to be decided before then.

The events of the last week blend into a pleasant haze of recollections. The Baccalau- reate, the Grad Hop, Graduation itself, and above all, the presence of our proud families all helped to make our June Week a triumphant climax to a four year project, tlic making of a Coast Guard Ollicer.

One of the most interesting and educating of the many phases of the Academy curriculum is the cruise on which the Cadets are introduced to life at sea. Most of us will never again visit Europe, and none of us will ever match the companionship possessed while traversing the Atlantic under sail. Sportsmanship and fair play were an integral part of Academy life and exemplified by the " Big Blue " in any sport who, win, lose or draw always tried their hardest and exempUfied the standards of fair play. Spare time balanced out our Uves with administrative duties and social life as there were always conunittees to join, choirs to sing in, dramatics to produce and dances and parties to attend. Yes, life at the Academy is a varied one and in living it and reminiscing about it we can only say that it was an enjoyable and prosperous " tour of duty. " CRUISE i (t e% zi Approximately thirty weeks of our four years as Cadets have been devoted to four training cruises. During this time, we were given every opportunity to apply chissroom theory to actual practice, and to learn about the many duties and responsibilities that we will encounter in our careers as Coast Guard Oflicers. The cruises always consisted of our own training barque liable and a modern cutter. The theory behind the cruises was to enable us to become more proficient in seamanship which our service prides itself in. We also learned to become conscious of the effects of wind, currents, and weather on a ship and how to carry out orders, give commands, and accept many responsibilities. If we didn ' t return better men liu tlic experience, it was no one ' s fault but our (umi. FOURTH CLASS SHOKl ( KUISH Our first cruise, a short one to Ik ' rmuda, began after two months of Swab summer indoctrination. In this time we had at least formulated a firm conviction that it was not going to be a pleasure trip. The Squadron consisted of three ships, the dimp- hcll, the J iinihitlili. and the luit;lc — belter known to us as " The Great White Bird. " ' Our first look at this last vessel was a far from encouraging one. We con- tinuously shifleil our ga c from Ihc sall liisl ami Ihinl classmen coming down the gangway to the three majestic masts rising 130 feet in the air. We all felt like greenhorns, and to make matters worse, one of our classmates dropped his seabag over the side. Needless to sa , this e oked quite a few laughs from the " veterans. " The numerous lines that adorned the masts and yards of the l£ai;le seemed to be a mass of confusion, and the ship ' s appearance gave us little hope that we could niaster the simple system that the upperclass claimed was behind it all. Two days at State Pier. however, helped because we were given the oppor- tunity to memori e the placement of the pins and to inspect our ship from royal to bilge, and from the chain locker to the ship ' s ollice. Our contact with hammocks was near catastrophic to those who failed to lie a secure knot to the bar overhead, and more than one experienced a wicked fall before learning. Out at sea our first sail drill was one of complete confusion, and we were often reprimanded for watch- ing the ama ing pr»)cess of setting sail instead of haul- ing on the line which was thrust into our hands. By experience and questions we learned the uses of t he lines, and we resorted to instinct rather than memory before very long. Our watches, vital to ship operation, were varied aiul inslruclive. .Mier a few da s. we all had an op- 58 portunity to stand quartermaster, messenger, signal- man, lookout, talker, helm, and the old reliable deck watch. Working hours were spent doing the never end- ing jobs aboard a ship, and a tour of duty in the paint locker, messcooking, or continual contact with diescl fuel was not much help when rolling and pitching became predominant. Seasickness took its toll, con- vincing a tew of us that a job on shore is not such a bad life after all. .Arrival at Bermuda meant a suitcli whereby we made the return trip on a dilTerent ship. The cutters, with racks no less, were a source of fascination to us; and it was with a great deal of interest that we wit- nessed the activities aboard a modern ship. Scraping and painting occupied a good part of our time and to this day quite a few claim we could make our way through the Hiiinbolili ' s bilges blindfolded. Life had just about settled down to a routine w here- by we knew all our duties and felt wiser in the ways of the sea when we passed under the New London Bridge, and drew our first experience with the sea to a close. THIRD CLASS LONG CRUISE June Week of " 53 brought us one of the biggest promotions in the Coast Guard. It was in the form of a single gold stripe, and it started us rolling gear down to the docks again in preparation for our first long cruise. The Eagle was no strange ship as we were old " salts ' " with a short cruise behind us as experience, and we had spent most of the three spring months preparing the " Bird " for the eleven and a half weeks to follow. Loading gear was a familiar storm. but finding a good hammock and hook was an easier task as academics and resignations had reduced our class to half its original number. The l-Miili ' preceded the Roikcnvay, our accompany- ing cutter, into Long Island Sound where the process of swinging ship took place. We anchored that night in New London ' s lower harbor and put on a show for those watching by weighing anchor the next morning while under sail. We didn ' t furl again for twenty-three days and well over two thousand miles later. We arrived at the mouth of the fjord leading up to Oslo — the first cruise where the luigle had made it completely across the Atlantic depending entirely on the elements for propulsion. The length of the crossing was equal to the entire duration of our short cruise, and during this time we adapted ourselves quickly to the ways of shipboard life. The first half of the way over was cold, rough, and wet; and in order to eat, we quickly learned how to hold on to the tray with one hand, eat with the other hand, and sit with legs locked securely around a bench. Seasickness on the rougher days was not un- common, but it was philosophically accepted by most of the sufferers who carried a bucket in one hand and a tray of food in the other. Drills, work formations, and watches occupied most of the day and part of the night, and sleep soon be- came a much sought after luxury. It was amazing how relaxing it could be to lie down on a wet and windy deck hoping never to hear the O.D. ' s blast on the whistle which could mean only an adjustment in the sail trim.

Sunset occurred later and later, and starsights were available practically all night. Because we were ahead of schedule, we made our way north of the Shetland Islands, and found our- selves one morning in the surprisingly calm North Sea. The rugged coast of Norway was finally sighted, and the morale of everyone attained new heights as we dug out shoes to be shined and blues to be pressed in preparation for our first European liberty. The trip up the fjord was a sight most of us will remember for the rest of our lives, as the fortifications and flag decorated homes of the nationalistic Nor- wegians made an awe inspiring sight. After six days at Oslo we regretfully unmoored ship at midnight, the fifth of July, to start on the middle leg of the cruise. Bound southward, we passed through the Skagerrak and sailed for the lowlands of the Netherlands and Belgium. Everyone who could possibly make it was 61 above decks when we made our way up to Antwerp along the swift Escaut River which had caused so much damage and loss of life by flooding its bank only a few months before. From Antwerp we proceeded under power through the Straits of Dover and the English Channel, setting sail a bit south on our way to Northern Spain. The increasing size of swells over this beautiful coast had us all guessing as to how hard our entrance would be. but with little difficulty wc were soon ashore with the kidding attitude of " Oh hum — another day. an- other country. " Again bound southward, we found ourselves in Las Palmas, Canary Islands about two hundred miles off the west coast of Africa. A pleasant but short three days later we stowed mooring lines for the last time before New London, and it was with fondest hopes of a quick voyage home than we left our last Euro- pean port. The cruise was divided into three parts with one third of the time spent on the cutter. These three weeks were long enough to give us a good insight as to the routine, men, and ships we would encounter after graduation. A program on tlie Rockaway was set up whereby we were able to use our time to the best advantage. and we took part in as many regular shipboard activi- ties as was possible. With good weather and a calm sea we were dropped over the side frequently in boats to learn the few details of this form of seamanship.

The loading and firing procedures were engrained in all of us. and the day was completed with good results. Our watches aboard the " Rock " had us as quartcr- niasiers. messengers, signalmen, lookouts, and for ten da s. enuineroom watches " down below. " In the uniform of the day became khaki shorts and T-shirts. 1 he requirements for sights had to be fulfilled so every spare moment was spent sh K)ting the sun and work- ing out the results in an effort to complete the book before it was due. Parties were planned to take place when we arrived at New London, even though all of us realized that no one would stay in New London any longer than the time it took to buy a ticket and board a train. " The " day finally arrived, and the happiest men on earth traditionally threw their steaming shoes with much eusto at the railroad brid je. The moorine lines ' Oiii l I lie iiii;lu ihcii covers me engine room we stood evaporator, auxiliary and as- sistant throttle watches, taking the numerous required hourly readings, and maintaining checks on those parts of the ship under the engineering section ' s surveillance. The four large Fairbanks Morse engines were a long way from our eight cylinder " Elmer " on the Eagle, but we put aside our awe and started learn- ing as much as we could about them in our short stay. The Eagle, hoping to make use of the North Equa- torial Current and its accompanying winds, travelled a course which brought it south for most of the crossing. The weather was warm and clear, and the were manned. As twenty-one days leave lay ahead, the gangway was no place to hesitate and so we rushed oflf leaving a successful eleven weeks behind us. SECOND CLASS SHORT CRUISE The arrival of the Eagle and the Rockaway had us packing sea bags once again and preparing for our first cruise as upperclassmen. Having indoctrinated the new fourth class in the material they would best learn by experience, we directed the loading of gear aboard the ships and assumed the responsibilities that were ours. It soon became evident that it was less 63 S ' avigalors ( IC U ' iini Damage coiitrul officers Eni;iiu ' c ' iiiii, ' waicli ojjicer Mcicurologists Ollwi ' is tij ihr tlnk 64 dillicull 1(1 rccci c and carr out (irilcrs ilicii to ,i:i c them and to solve the problem ol what would be the best way to do an ellicient job c|uiekly and completely. This sense of responsibility was one wliieh we tried our best to develop to its fullest extent, as the new class was completeK depentieni upon our actions and directions. We c|uickl liuind thai there uas a lot more to tiie ship than ue had aclualK reali eii. cspecialK when uc attenipled to answer llie main (.|uestions directed at us. When a man ' s lile aloft depended upon our directions and how fully he understood our instruc- tions, we became rudely aware that with upperclass rates came also the burden of responsibility. At sea we realized how far we had progressed in the two years since we were in the same position as the fourth class was now. Their many cases of seasickness were matched by an occasional few of our own. but iiciii voiir stations Sow for the jccci wiiicr .system theirs were attributed to ditferent reasons. We could smile at their confusion as to locations of various compartments, at their trouble staying in a hammock, no less sleeping in it, and at their intense scrub down at 0500, remembering full well ourselves in the same situation. With two stripes came a change in watches, and we soon found that we ourselves had much to learn as O.D. ' s, bosn ' s mates and C.I.C. men. Planning a routine and setting up watch lists was more com- plicated than we had believed, and it became essen- tial to learn the sequence of commands in setting and furling, tacking and wearing and bracing around. Life on this cruise always held the unexpected, and being prepared to meet whatever resulted required our undivided attention. A man ' s careless handling of a line could mean the ruin of a sail, and a man ' s releasing a wrong line from a pin could mean a two ton yard was free to run eight to ten feet down its track with little to stop its motion. The days passed quickly however, and the warm Gulf Stream and sunny weather gave us an oppor- tunity for swim calls. A boat was dropped over the side as a safety measure along with a life raft, and when the word was given, both were followed by Cadets jumping and di ing into the warm, greenish blue water. The small islands were finally reached, and after anchoring, boats took us ashore for our second visit to Bermuda. The switch of Cadets from one ship to the other was affected, and after three days we secured the ship for sea and started the 600-mile voyage home. The approach of Hurricane Carol from the south had everyone alert as to the chances of our meeting this severe storm. The weather maps were carefully studied and the course of the storm headins in our Over the side and ride tlie painter -r « f %.

Luckily, the full impact of the storm passed to the cast, hut the tail end ga e us a few experiences we ' ll remem- ber for the rest of our lives. Life lines rigged through- out the Ediilc pre ented a number of us from taking a bad fall on the wet decks, as waves often broke over the waist and sometimes onto the Quarterdeck. Ihc Rockaway also took its full share, and the fantail could not be used for any purposes, as water con- tinually swept across it. The lesson that the sea was a powerful force when aroused was thoroughly learned b c cr onc aboard the two ships. Now London Ledge Light proved to be a welcome sight as we prepared to lower the masts of the •. ' ( ,i ' ' and returned ashore to start another academic ear. IlkSI (1 ASS LONf. fKl ' ISi; Our linal cruise as tirst classmen was made in a position of a good deal of rcsponsibilit and authorits.

Shrouded h fog for sometime, eciestial navigation was out of the question. Consequently, navigators resorted to Loran, R. D. F., and dead reekoning for positions. Living aboard ship again became familiar to us, and life settled down to a normal, but typically hectic routine. As O.D. ' s we enjoyed a position of responsibility and by experience, some good and some bad, we gained insight as to what would be expected of us in another year. Helpful advice and occasional suggestions b the Captain and commissioned O.D. " s aided us im- mensely in making decisions which, with their experi- ence, would he the logical course of action, but to us it was a matter demanding considerable thought. As boatswain mates and coxswain, we were directly re- sponsible to the Cadet O.D.. and with the underclass deck watch carried out the necessary work, caring for the sails. Three days were spent as meteorologists; deciphering codes and plotting weather maps at six hour intervals: interpreting them as best we could and playing a guessing game with what remained. As navigators we utilized nearly every conceivable method to obtain positions for actual use and valuable prac- tice. A C.I.C. watch consisted of plotting the course and speed of every ship that would invariably head towards us for a good look; and maintaining a continu- ous watch on radar for targets and squalls. Master at Arms meant a three day position in which we were held responsible for maintaining a smooth running day ' s routine and riding herd on idle underclassmen. A week out at sea found us in close contact with the Campbell maintaining station Baker One and signal- men were set to work day and night sending messages. One message was so realistic that it was forwarded to Washington and gained its sender ten spots. Other I lie Sain is ' drills of a necessary and instructive nature were held daily at 1 300 quarters. Complain as we might at repetition, it couldn ' t help but be noticed how much more proficient we became as each day passed. Aban- don ship, man overboard, fire, collision, sail stations, and the familiar boat drills were held alternately. When conditions allowed, a monomoy would be dropped over the side and kept on a sea painter while we, as coxswains, took turns at " commanding " her while the Eagle was underway. Eventually, continual practice gave us enough self-confidence in handling the boat so we could anticipate and meet the require- ments demanded. Much of the ship ' s work dealt in maintaining our " engine " — the sails — in safe and operating conditions. Splicing, repairing or replacing worn gear aloft be- came a sought after and preferred job as it removed Clunved ih vii a liiilc loo ( A sterUnq crew " 67 us. to a degree, from the continuous observance given to men on deck. Also considered was the fact that we then had the opportunity to gaze at an unrestricted and far distant horizon — a sight that ne er ceased to fill us with awe. Sail drills became a matter of pride, and it was a continuous race against time. Braces were as familiar to our hands as our noses to our faces, and the man who failed to slack the lee brace when required was certainly not the most popular man aboard ship. The process of correctly tacking and wearing ship was an art, and we, as students with an occasional chance to try it ourselves, were well aware of the ability of Captain Zittel as our instructor. Our two week period in the " " black hole " gave us an opportunity to apply classroom theory to actual prac- tice. By the time we became " deck apes " once more we felt quite capable of carrying out routine opera- tions on all the equipment with little difficulty. By starting and securing the machinery when required, we learned a good deal — some of it the hard way. Safety rules became even more important when we, in turn, checked out the underclass. Starting and paralleling generators became a routine course of action involving no difficulty unless, perhaps, one hap- pened to be boiling over at the time. The star attraction of " Lee-Lee " s Tea Room " was undeniably " Elmer, " whose slightest whim we were ever careful to satisfy since he was our source of power when the wind failed. The engine, however, proved to be as unpredictable as ever by demolishing two pistons within an amazingly short period of time. This caused a great deal of sweat and labor to be placed in operation at all hours of the day and night. The (irst land sighted was the dark and rocky coast of Northern Ireland, and not too much later we were making our way up the Firth of Clyde to Glasgow. It was with a bit of regret that most of us left here later in the week, but it wasn ' t long before our minds and bodies accustomed themselves once more to life at sea. We traveled south between Scot- land and Ireland, and then through the Hnglish Chan- nel on our way to l.c Havre. Our special interest was directed to the hisioric siics of the NorniancK landings in l ' M4. It was at this port that the first class on the l-Aii-lf letl their own " wardroom " and changed over to llic Ciiniphi ' ll. and those on the escort reluctant l Icll the weather shack and headed for the " Bird " . Leaving I.e Havre, we traveled south again lo Lisbon and from there to the Madeira ' s, where we saw by night the gigantic tiara formed by the street lights on the beaulful islands.

The Campbell, at dusk one evening, steamed on b the slowly moving Eagle and left with the flashing light message of " We wish you fair wind and smooth sail- ing. " Bound for Newport, gunnery drills were term- inated with a day of actual firing, and the Cadets kept up a good record on the 5 inch mount. A depth charge was fired in a demonstration to show tiic wartime capabilities of this ship. Back on the Eagle, all hands were straining in a mustache growing contest and preparations were being made for Coast Guard Day. On August 4th the ship was divided into four camps: the Officers, first class Cadets, third class Cadets, and the Enlisted Men. Each had its own team in the boat race, tug of war, volley ball, and pie eating contest. The first class, winning two of the events, captured the award as champs, and later put on the traditional siiow mimick- ing the Officers. The greatest problem of the Cadet O.D. ' s aboard the Cuinphell was maintaining station on the Eagle. hut when we finally left her, we were given an oppor- I unity to apply much of what was taught concerning this responsible position. The Combat Information Center — here, was more advanced than that of the l-.agle ' s. and we were introduced into utilizing modern equipment in our regular plots. The means of propul- sion being turbines, the cutter provided us also with a practical application of our thermodynamics and power engineering courses. This shipboard life proved to be one of the most interesting periods of the cruise. At Newport, various phases of service activities were ilisplaved for our benefit, and we took an active part in others. C.I.C. mock-ups. Damage Control methods, conmiunication and fueling at sea were all a part of tiie brief but valuable instruction. The proximity of a hurricane hastened the arrival of the Eagle and the Cainphell into New London, and our fourth and final cruise ended with 56 turning the watch over to " 57. Not one of us can look back on it all without re- calling some incidents that brings smiles to our faces, or starts off a sea story with an " T remember once. . . . " What we gained could not be measured in dollars, and no one could truthfully deny he regretted the thirl weeks that certainly made better men of us all. Our class adviser 69 n 7 Paxu e ' ? ct-- Late in the Summer of 1952 we slid thnuigh the turquoise green water of the channel from the Atlantic Ocean into the quiet little harbor of Hamilton. Bermuda. Disembarking, we found an island unspoiled by the many tourists who frequent it from the Americas and Europe. It didn ' t take us long to awaken the natives to the fact that the Squadron was in. Within ten minutes of the time we went ashore, we had dis- covered the Elbow Beach Surf Club, motorbikes, a new set of driving rules, men with their knees show- ing, and all the best bargains to be had in t iie shops of Bermuda. That night we went further in our explorations and were introduced to Calypso singing and the rest of the Bermudian night life. No one will dispute the fact that the little island had made quite an impression on all of us. nor will we be forgotten by her — at least, that is what the Bermudian newspapers stated. A long year ensued before we again ventured forth to prove that we were not the ' " wi.se fools ' " that our sophomore name belied. We were really out to prove that we were seasoned travelers and true cosmopoli- tans. First on the itinerary was Oslo, Norway. It was unfortunate that Oslo was our first foreign port, for we never found another city quite like her. Swimming along the fjords, hiking up the gradual slopes of the Norwegian hills to Oslo ' s famous ski jump, riding in Oslo, object of Olymp ic aspirants the masterfully handled water taxis, and idling awa our time in the parks and outdoor night spots of the town, consumed most of our time, but we still found a few spare moments to appreciate the beautiful blue- eyed blondes. With respect to the latter, it can be said that many a letter crossed the ocean long after we had departed Oslo — maybe this accounts for the dream. ' look that enters the eye of many a cadet whenever we recall those six days. For most of us Antwerp was just a jumping-olT slop on the wax to Paris, or so we thought. It was Macbeth slept here A touch of Rrii;acUHm 70 only a few hours after we had tied up, that half of us were olT to see the sights that Paris had to olTcr. Those that staved hehind, soon stopped sulking when they found such lively little places as the Clair de Lunc and the Kitty Club. Were sure that we will never forget the haunting strains of those perennial favorites " Rio Rita " and " Crazy, Man, Crazy, " nor the impersonations, that at times seemed so realistic, by an individual known only as " Mitzy. " Those " But they ' re so small " glasses at the Clair de Lune sure did have us fooled. Even with all the entertainment atforded us in Antwerp, we were still ready to see Paris when the first group, with descriptions of their variety of experi- ences in the most romantic city of France, returned. lo the surprise of everyone, Paris was everything that we had ever heard. There were the sidewalk cafes, the Follies, the Champs, Pigalle. the Eiffel Tower, the girls, Montmartre, " on the hill " , the Lido, the Left Bank, Notre Dame, and always more girls.

The had ever thing fiom a complete orchestra to fountains and an open air dance floor. One of the highlights of our visit was a tour of the surrounding countryside. The trip culminated in one of the best " ' feeds " we had on the entire cruise: some of us are still wondering whether or not they would have ever stopped bringing in the food and drink if we hadn ' t had to return to the ship. For the adventuring soul there were the dingy and waste-strewn back alleys of the city to e.xplore, aways in search of those " dilferent " stories. Sooner or later the inevitable had to happen — many of us became acquainted for the first time with a gentle- man by the name of Bacchus, a fellow that ' s been around for a good many years. But time was running out and we had to lea e for our next port of call. I. as Palmas in tiic Canar Islands. Since most of us were now eager to get home and our stay in the islands was to be so short, we were not expecting too much, but many of us were fooled A ciisilc In Aittwcip A rcstrooDi in fiance Where ihe elite meet to eat 72 Il(ipal( m; ' s linidpcan adventures This mt ' lu to impress the faiiiil 73 w It seems like the first ports are always the best. Just like Oslo on the first cruise, so. too, we found Glasgow to be the city where most of the romances started. The little cars, driving on the left side of the street, learning to look the wrong way before crossing the street, the fog-shrouded cobblestone streets, and above all the friendly people — all these things will remind us of Scotland when we think back to our trips to Europe. We drove over to Edinburgh and up to the " " bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond " - — some even tried swimming in its icy waters, but soon gave that up as a bad in vestment. Dancing at the La Carno Ballroom was another favorite pastime. It was a fitting and sentimental end to our isit lor we sailed out of Glasgow to the haunting strains of a crack Scottish bagpipe group — there ' s something about those little bags that really makes you shiver. However, they weren ' t the only ones with them, for included among the souvenirs purchased was a genu- ine set of Scotch bagpipes. As we entered the port of Le Havre, she stared back at us with her bleak, rebuilt look; it was easy to see that she was still recuperating from the latest World War. The only real drawback to the city, howe er, was the size of the pebbles on the beaches; ' Bum " haul drill Oops ' wmni; alley when the beaches, the clubs, escapades at the Lido, sailing in the bay, haggling over prices with the local merchants, and the " atmosphere " of this smoldering little city all conspired to produce some of our most colorful tales. After a hard year at the books and a summer of breaking in the new recruits, we were again under- v ay, but a big change had been wrought — wc were now the top dogs, and. as we quietly made our way toward Bermuda, we let the underclass know in our bored cosmopolitan way just what was awaiting them on the tiny islanil. Bermuda had not cliaiigcd in our two years ' ab- sence. We put our past knowledge to good use and by the start of the second day were way ahead ot our " younger brothers " in the number of contacts wc had made. Many of our former haunts were revisited and most of the few days we had were spent in talk- ing over the good old days over a cool lemonade — age was sure creeping up on us! May 29, 1955 — we departed on our last (ailct Cruise — first stop New York.

In addition to the Mexico, Marie ' s, and the Ameri- cano, there was always Paris to revisit and, for those who didn ' t wish to travel quite so far, the little town of Rouen just up the road a piece. Next stop — Lisbon. He re was the city we had all been awaiting; all the best cards were picking Lisbon as " todays best choice for a good time " — we weren ' t disappointed. Talk about diversified experiences — we not only saw all the sights of the Texas and the Europa but also managed to schedule exhibition games in soccer, basketball, swimming and sailing. For some, it was a rare opportunity to see the little town of Fatima, a chance that most of us were glad to get. For others Lisbon itself was enough to keep them happy. Some of us got our first chance to witness a bull Three cheers for " El Toro ' r The " Canipheir in an island paradise hglit. Iniernational relations were rather strained, imw- ever, since the old American tradition of roi)ting lor the underdog promoted many cheers for the bull. Our fun-loving days had come to an end, and it was with many a regret that we left Lisbon for our last port-of-call, Funchal, a Portuguese possession in the Madeira Islands. (You " ve heard of their wines, no doubt?) We sampled the aforementioned wine, took a trip to the top of the mountains for a view of the harbor, tried out a few of the restaurants, decided the island was much like Bermuda, and then sad but happ took our leave for the long trip back to the States and home. Most of us will probably never see Europe or Bermuda again but we can all sa in sincerity that the knowledge and entertainment gained on our Cadet cruises will never be foniotten. riic I ' CM poll i ! all " ■saHIKi 76 1 ATHIETIC8 fl Boh Brisioi, ( c, Gaihy smiiis a lonjj; one ' PaatUii Opening their season at home this year, the CGA " 11 " showed very quickly that even when on de- fense they could produce touchdowns. The crowd of 3,500 Cadets, Alumni and friends who attended the annual Homecoming contest were treated to the un- usual and enjoyable sight of five blocked Norwich punts, and in four cases a resulting CGA score. Captain Bob Bristol blocked three himself to lead the Big Blue to a 32-9 victory. The following week, the Bears lost a close 14-7 game on a muddy Weslcyan field, despite the flashy running of Carl Denney. However, the Cadets bounced back a week later to delight the Secretary ' s Day crowd with a 21-13 upset victory over previously unbeaten Amherst. Long, booming punts by Ernie Allen and outstanding pla by CGA quarterback Russ Bisliop helped spectators to endure a driving rain. Worcester Tech ' s 1 1 game winning streak came to an end in similar fashion on Jones Field and Coast Guard ' s reputation as a giant-killer was enhanced b the 14-7 win. No amount of effort could stop Trinity however, and the Bears were defeated 27-0. A mea- sure of consolation was provided by a siege of Troy which resulted in a 13-0 win o er RPi ' s Engineers.

The task of selecting a winning team from the large number of aspirants falls to Captains Lawrence and Williams. Foremost on their roster this year is team captain Don Campbell, but an ample supply of material backs him up.

Designed to bolster class spirit as well as to provide exercise and enjoyment for the many who do not play Varsity ball, this pro- gram is very popular and competition is strong. In the Fall, the Cross-Country race and Touch Football predominate the inter-class scene. The word " touch " fails to convey a true picture of the fracases which ensue in this form of football. Varsity and JV inter-class basketball. volle ball and ping pong head the list of Winter activities while rifle and pistol matches, softbail. swimming and sail- ing competitions come in the Spring.

Proudest of their victories was last year ' s defeat of the Academy Junior Varsity, some- thing no other class team had previously accomplished. First place in the inter-class Touch Football tourne went to ' 56 last Fall. Currenth leading in volleyball and ping-pong as well as basketball, the " " old men " of the league seem to have the Winter competition on ice.

Yet it has past, is here, and continues on into eternity. Time has taken its toll on the body of this graduating class. There remains a brotherhood of men, each with his own ideals, beliefs and ambitions; but each with a conunon experience and a common career. It is easy and convenient to look at a group as a whole and to say, " this was a good group, " or, " it shall be remembered because they that composed it functioned as a team and accomphshed this or that. " It is no less difficult to be more specific and say, " this class, " for in their Academy years they, also, worked as a group. Whether right or wrong, their endeavors experienced a cohesion that brought praise when it was due and like- wise admonition. Now, however, let us look into the center and learn about the individuals who are being commemorated in this volume. The following pages are devoted to these individuals. On each page there is a character — his traits, his fame, his fun as recorded by his classmates. It is finished. The keel has been laid, the product has taken its form, now the launching. We proudly present the Class of 1956. i Ill llic loriii ol a vouiil; man uho will answer to a ihoiisaiul names (all from one spelliiiL; i. the Xeademy gained a real " prime mover.

Another of the Academy ' s self professed bachelors, he seldom fails, nevertheless, to show up at class functions without, " oh. just a friend. " His ability to say the most in the shortest length of time, along with his friendliness and deep sincerity will long be remem- bered by his classmates. Mike ' s sheer determination to do a job and do it well will be invaluable help to the service.

He has always been wilHng to help a guy, to go on hberty. or to chip in on an " old I ' ashioned " bull session at any lime of the day or night. These traits seem natural for any cadet, but they stand out in .Skip. His Acad- emy activities have been I ' ocu.sed on the Thames, where he has sailed both for the team and for pleasure. Skij " ) has aLso been one of the men who go out hither and yon lo spread the word about C ' CiA. He has accumulated quite a bit of mileage for cadet procurement. Skip ' s earnestness, coupled with his solidly good nature, have earned him a good name at the Academy.

However, just to mention sailing, on weekends .lohn can always be found down by the boathouse or on one of the aciu races. He also contributed greatly on the produc- tion stair of cadet musical events. John was a spark in intercompany aliiletics, which was just one of the opportunities to show the true sportsman and team man he is. He has never lacked female com- panionship, but we think he has settled down.

And this grand old ship — U.S.S. Constitution, " Old Ironsides " — fought many glorious battles to es- tablish this principle. The founding of Insurance Company of Xortli America gave firm support to our determination to keep the seas free. It provided the young nation with its own independent facilities, which were applied first to insure the ships carrying our commerce. From that important beginning, the Xorth America Companies have moved on to offer practically all kinds of insurance, except life, providing protection against financial loss and peace of mind for the individual family. That ' s why the North America Companies are simplifying and improving insurance. Already, great strides have been taken to make it broader in protection, more economical, and available to more people. And because this means greater peace of mind and security for the family, we intend to go as far in this program as the laws of the various states will allow. To get a clearer picture of what insurance can do for your family, read the new booklet. " The Change Around Us. " For a free copy, call or write your North America Agent.

NAVY New tactical mobility is brought to many U.S. Navy operations by the Fairchild X-1, a revolutionary underwater weapons system for close-in reconnaissance of harbors and inlets. The X-1 is the first of its kind ever produced in America, and the first naval vessel of any kind to be designed and constructed by a U.S. aircraft manufacturer. Fairchild designed and built the 25-ton. 50-foot X-1 with an uncon- ventional underwater propulsion system, and with airplane-like con- trols. The new " pocket " sub has a four-man crew — operates quietly and stealthily, performing missions that large craft could never do. Once again, Fairchild design and engineering ingenuity has produced a vital new instrument of defense for our armed forces.

ELECTRONIC GUNFIRE CONTROL GIVES NAVY GREATER ACCURACY Locates Attacking Jets, Computes Firing Data Automatically THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY: ■ Next time you heur the shrill " whistle " of a jet fighter flashing across the sky, try to imagine you ' re a Navy gunner aboard a destroyer under attack. Your chances of hitting that tiny, and perhaps unseen, " speck " racing at you faster than the speed of sound are better than ever before. The Navy ' s Mark 63 Gunfire Control System is one of the modern steps in the never-ending search for more accurate firing. It has been in use since before the Korean conflict. ■ Developed by Sperry in cooperation with the Navy ' s Bureau of Ordnance, the Mark 6.3 Gunfire Control System is part of the Navy ' s new and more effective anti-aircraft defense. After detection, it picks up the enemy either optically or by radar . . . automatically tracks his approach . . . computes range and firing data electronically . . . then all within the same fraction of a second, aims the guns and fires them automatically from the director. Sperry ' s engineering know- how — utilizing years of experience in electronics, gyroscopics and servo- mechanisms-has made this possible. ■ Everyone hopes, of course, that our United States forces will never again see actual combat. But it ' s good to know that gunfire control systems, like the Mark 63, are ready — and ready because the Navy anticipated the threat of today ' s faster flying jets long before they actually existed. Foresight such as this is the essence of research and improvement in weapons and goes a long way toward keeping the world at peace— toward dis- couraging possible aggressors.

But you ' ll eat dust as a matter of prudence — and not out of necessity — if you drive a 1956 Pontiac. For this car has it. With its big, Strato-Streak V-8— and smooth, positive Strato- Flight Hydra-Matic — it goes into action like nobody ' s business. Ample size gives it unusual sta- bility—keeps the rear wheels driving and not spinning. New principles of balance give it phe- nomenal straight-line steering. It goes into action like an antelope —and the faster it goes, the more it seems glued to the ground. This long, low mile-shrinker is the Number One thriller of 1956. And, of course, it has all the estab- lished Pontiac dependability and long life and low upkeep. And — as you can see for yourself— it ' s the great beauty of all time. Now read the price story in the next column — then see your Pontiac dealer — and eat nobody ' s dust from necessity from this day on! SEE YOUR PONTIAC DEALER The car says GO and the price won ' t stop you!
