TRUMAN Jri : T is with sincere pleasure that I accept this opportunity to extend my congrat- ulations to the Cadet-Midshipmen of the United States Merchant Marine Academy who are graduating in this eventful year, nineteen hundred and forty-five. Seven years ago the founding of the United States Merchant Marine Cadet Corps forged the binding link in a long range plan for the improvement of the nation ' s foreign trade in time of peace, and national security in time of war. These plans were a normal culmination of the hard-earned lessons of many trying years of our liistory, when we saw a once great American Merchant Marine diminish almost to extinction, then rise in the heat of war only to diminisli again. ]Now in the stress of another great war, from which we are sure to emerge victorious, we find ourselves the owners of the largest Merchant Marine in the history of the nation. It seems to me particularly fitting that Midships II, the second yearbook of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, is to be dedicated to the everlasting mem- ory of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. VICE ADMIRAL EMORY SCOTT LAND, USN, (Ret ' d) eV Y Midships II in the years to come bring to the minds of the Cadet-Mid- shipmen, whose stories are in these pages, a personal sense of satisfaction of a great service rendered to the cause of freedom. Our Country will be forever grateful to the Merchant Marine officers who an- swered the call to man the thousands of United States Merchant vessels now in ser- vice throughout the world. History will record the role the United States Merchant Marine Cadet Corps and its graduates have filled to assure total victory. But, more important than the historian ' s notes, these pages will serve to spark the treasured memories of graduates in recalling hard work and study, the vicissitudes of securing an education while engaged in combat with the enemy, and yet with all, the related joys and pleasures shared with shipmates. To Midships II and the Cadet-Midshipmen who have contributed to its publi- cation, my heartiest best wishes. . ' r t-O ' i ' yc-t - c ' VICE ADMIRAL, USN, (Ret ' d) Administrator, War Shipping Administration Chairman, United States Maritime Commission CAPTAIN EDWARD MACAULEY, USN, (Ret ' d) TO THE MEMBERS OF THE GRADUATING CLASS c D MIDSHIPS II is your book and each o£ you has contributed something to its making. I know that you will treasure it. May I extend to all Cadet-Midshipmen of the grad- uating classes hearty congratulations and sincere best wishes for many happy voyages at sea. You are leaving Kings Point and your wartime shortened education now will be put to test. But, as thousands of graduates before you have proved, a KiNCS Pointer, trained practically aboard ship in combat, and educated in theory under competent in- structors, embarks upon his profession with confiden ce. Leaders of our Armed Forces have been strong in their acclaim of the Merchant Marine ' s contribution to Vic- tory, and graduates of the United States Merchant Marine Cadet Corps have distinguished themselves in all theaters of war. Continue to display the spirit and will to succeed you have shown in completing a course of training that has not been easy, and your future is yours to make of it what you will.

These hasic requisites, in addition to other qualities of leadership, are exemplified by our Superintendent. The story of Commodore Stedman, however, is legendary among members of the shipping fraternity, and it is not our purpose to relate the many heroic episodes. The United States Mercliant Marine Academy at Kings Point was establish- ed in 1942 shortly after the United States entered World ar II. There existed at that time a remote resemblance of the Academy as we know it today. A few wooden barracks, a handful of Cadet-Midshipmen, a bare minimum of out- moded equipment, and one intangilile asset — a driving force to train capalile merchant officers — formed the nucleus of this Academy. During the next three years this embryo grew and expanded; more than six thousand deck and engineering officers were graduated from Kings Point, and the Academy rose to an acknowledged and deserved place in the service of the United States. Kings Point and Commodore Stedman have advanced together, equally shouldering the burden of adversity and Ijasking in the security of the more prosperous days. The Commodore has been the moving spirit in our progress, and has influenced the lives of many young officers — sometimes by reprimand, often by praise, but always with a genuine interest in the molding of strong characters. Those who have conversed with him intimately have Ijeen impressed by his reserved, penetrating personality. The entire regiment feels that he per- sonifies the maximum achievement in the maritime profession. As the graduat- ing classes pass through our portals to assume tlie responsibilities of shipping in the post-war economic world, they will remember Kings Point and Com- modore Stedman as one and inseparable.

' T ' he seamanship and Navigation courses have been devised to give the deck Cadet-Midship- man a wide range of knowledge which will make him a better Merchant Officer. In navigation, he is taught to determine the position of a vessel by means of celestial observa- tions and piloting. He learns how to take his vessel from point to point on the earth ' s surface, studies nautical astronomy, and learns aliout navigational aids, buoyage systems, and the operation, main- tenance, and care of navigational instruments. In Seamanship he learns ship-handling, the upkeep and maintenance of a ship and its equip- ment, rules of the road, and the use and main- tenance of damage control and fire fighting equip- ment, a complete knowledge of which is expected of an efficient deck officer. The Cadet-Midshipman also gains first-liand information on ship-handling, piloting, and shore- side operations by his visits to shipyards, and his cruises aboard Academy Vessels and commercial towboats. hitt 9IIKSSiBtSaBE:! - ' ' - " - — l-Jfc Jf ■-».«-| V1M» U | lf| " FRONT ROW: Lt.

WT HILE the " Deck Gang " of the " Victory " ship is at work during a sea voyage, it performs many important jobs. These jobs may include topping booms, anclioring, mooring or unmooring, or re- newing lines and wire. The Chief officer, A Kirvcs Pointer, has a technical knowledge of the work aboard ship. He knows the strength of wire or line needed for a job ; he knows the proper boom angle for a particular load; he knows when two anchors are needed to secure liis vessel in the stream, which lines should be used when moored alongside a dock with a head current — he knows his seamanship !

Cadet-Midshipmen become proficient in the use of the semaphore flags through extensive practice on the roof of Samuels Hall. Apart from work during classes the equipment is available for use during the student ' s spare time. ■U-JUmj ar -.rir-V -r : I ' T ' o BECOME a good deck officer, a great deal of knowledge is necessarily poured into the mind of a Cadet-Midshipman while he is attending the Academy. Of great importance in the future suc- cess of these men is the suhject of Cargo Handling and Stowage. Almost any person can hecome an efficient navigator, signalman, or hoatman. It is with this in mind that Ki.NCS PoiiVT stresses the importance of theoretical academic training. A study of Cargo, its handling and stowage, gives every graduate of the course a good work- ing knowledge and a hasic theory of the efficient loading of their vessels. This will prove an asset in future years, ashore and afloat, when the steam- ship companies are hiring cargo officers — men who can load a ship, keeping her trimmed and stahle and keeping the cargo in perfect condiiion. Studies such as this will place a Kings Pointer in a higher bracket in the shipping industry. , ■ " Explaining use of King Posts. w (BiiIB( (| To prepare them for an unex- pected emergency, Cadet-Mid- shipmen learn to send and to receive Morse code using an automatic tape sender.

It takes a person with good common sense, a background of mathematics, and an ambitious mind. Cadet-Midshipmen know the earth, the celes- tial sphere, dead reckoning, the astronomical tri- angle, the compass, the tides, and the celestial bodies, ' ith this information he must be able to apply his findings with a sextant, pelorus, and navigational aids to the surface of the earth.

The course pursued includes the study of winds, temperature, humidity, clouds, precipitation, atmospheric pressure, storms, instruments of meteorology, and Government weather reports. Routine reports of all weather conditions are submitted to the Hydrographic Office in Washington by radio from all ships at sea in peacetime. Therefore, this is an important and valuable subject.

Although the greatest part of the Cadet-Midshipman ' s career is spent in pursuing studies in steam, diesel, and electrical engineering, the Department of Engineering has not neglected the all important studies of ship construction, mechanical drawing. Rules and Regulations, and machine shop. Field trips to electrical repair siiops foundries, and local power plants form an excellent supplement to the theory and laboratory schedules. Although every engine Cadet-Midshipman has spent a minimum of six months at sea working under ideal conditions, the Division of Labora- tories endeavors to bring to the student engineers a more complete picture than can be brought out by actual operating conditions such as the design of the machinery witli which the Cadet-Midshipman will work, the ])ossible economy that can be brought about by skillful liandling and cffcient operation of the equipment. •.

HARTMAN, Chief Steam Instructor. il Dr •a Hi HPhe study of Steam Engineering is considered to be one of the most important studies undertaken by engine Cadet-Midshipmen. Without a thorough knowledge of thermodynamics, combustion control, lubrication, cooling, operation of auxiliaries, boil- ers, reciprocating engines and turbines, it is certain that no Third Assistant could competently " take over " a watch. The Department of Steam Engineer- ing has endeavored to produce engineering gradu- ates capable of handling any engine room from the smallest tug to the largest passenger vessels. Supplementing the classroom lectures, the steam laboratory, largest in the Division of Labor- atories, brings to the Cadet-Midshipmen not only a correlation between the practical and theoretical aspects of steam engineering but acquaints tlie student engineer with the latest trends in modern equipment now taking its place in the marine e ngi- neering field. The laboratory is complete with boilers, large reciprocating engines, turbines, and every type of auxiliary. Plant efficiency is stressed and instruction is given in the taking of indicator cards, flue gas analysis, and complete testing of hoilerwater for all types of boilers. W ith this train- ing, the graduate engineer leaves Kings Point alireast of recent developments in marine steam equipment, able and ready to assume full charge of an engine room watch. ' ' he development of the Diesel engine in this country has in no small way aided the growth of our new and largest Merchant Marine. The ma- jority of propulsion plants heing installed in ships now under construction are Diesel engines. The installation of these engines created a major problem, that being the shortage of experi- enced engineers to operate and maintain these ships. To cope with this problem, a very comprehen- sive course in Diesel Engineering was instituted in the Academy curriculum. The Cadet-Midshipmen are instructed as to the operation of the engine in a modern and well equipped laboratory. Experi- ments are carried out in the laboratory relating to starting, timing, breakdowns, and repairs to the engine. Tlie devolpment and designs of the Diesel in this country and abroad are given to Cadct-Mid- sliipmen. The practical work carried out in the laljoratory aids the Cadet-Midshipman in his understanding of the characteristics of the engine. Upon graduation, the prospective engineer is ready to take liis place in his chosen field. rna mjh . ■11 aaiUCS lBlKDIIlPlI Tmportant in the varied knowledge required of a marine engineer is both a theoretical and prac- tical understanding of the generation and applica- tions of electricity. This is of special importance now, with the increasing tendency toward turbo- electric and Diesel-electric main propulsion drive and motor driven auxiliaries in ships now being operated in our Merchant Marine. The Electrical Engineering course of the Academy is specifically designed to fill these needs. Following an introduction to magnetism and fundamentals of electricity, the course covers series and parallel circuits, generators, motors. switchboard circuits, and their uses and differ- ences with alternating and direct current. Atten- tion is paid as well to meters, starters and con- trollers, and ship wiring and intercommunications systems. In both the classroom and laboratory, experiments and demonstrations of operation of equipment are performed. Able instructors help develop a trouble- shooting technique in tlie Cadet-Midshipman by careful explanation and actual practice in the find- ing and correction of faculty behavior of electrical apparatus. Class in foiindrv work. LT. L. F. GAUDREAUX Senior Officer, Division of Laboratories Ctarting with a huinhle location in a liot house years ago, the division of laboratories has grown into the most modern, completely equipped system of " learning by doing " in the country. The pride of Fulton Hall is the steam engi- neering laboratory, complete with a set of marine type water tube boilers, a large propulsion type, triple expansion, reciprocating engine, and every other conceivable piece of auxiliary machinery found aboard ships today. A large Diesel labora- tory, equipped witli propulsion engines, genera- tors, waste heat boilers, and other pieces of equip- ment now used in conjunction with modern motor ship operation, equips the Cadet-Midshipmen with an up-to-date practical knowledge of Diesel Engineering. Up top, on the third deck of Fulton Hall, can be found the electrical laboratory. Although these three laboratories comprise the greater part of the Division of Labo ratories, there are smaller, but quite important shops nec- essary for rounding out capable, practical, marine engineers. Among these smaller laboratories is tlie pipe shop, the forge shop, and the welding shop — all in addition to the large modern machine shop from which the Department of Engineering has produced so many skilled machinists. isnTcBHEris liiiilBCDIBiilPCDIBIII ' . 1 muw (pCDltgiPIBWCSlPIlCDEr 1Z " eeping pace with wartime shipbuilding methods is a full time subject. Revolutionary changes in ship construction, with prefabrication and weld- ing, have presented many new problems. In the ship construction courses, the future officer is shown the various steps in the designs and calculations required by the naval architect before the keel of the ship is laid. The reasons underlying a ship ' s lines, and the factors in its stability and trim are carefully covered. A knowl- edge of materials and casting processes of certain structural members, drydocking, types and methods of hull construction are supplemented in the classroom by field trips to foundries and shipyards. Knowing the strong and weak points of a ship and how it will act under certain conditions, are of utmost importance. With this knowledge, situations may be avoided that might seriously damage the vessel and endanger the lives of its passengers and crew. Piping layouts. ' T ' he mechanical drawing department affords the Cadet- Iidshipnian his first real opportunity to visualize the complicated machinery that he will be confronted with at sea. To simplify piping systems, propulsion machinery valves, pumps and machined parts, the heads of this department have prepared a well planned and tliorough course. These future officers are given instructions in free hand sketching. This is of great importance because the majority of parts that have to be re- placed are either inaccessible or to large to be moved. To sketch the part and have it duplicated in a machine shop is of great assistance to a man on board ship. Piping systems found on our ships are down to a standard system. These standards and symbols Pictorial machine drawing. used are explained by the officers, as to their medium and relations to the system. Projects have to be reproduced and other problems are given to the Cadet-Midshipman to be solved. Mechanical sketching is emphasized in transcriptions of ma- cliinery and working parts. The importance of blueprint reading should not be overlooked. It is necessary to understand and translate the print accurately to operate the vessel efficiently. With this in mind a comprehen- sive study has been contrived to acquaint the men with this specific course. The scope of the drawing instructions have given these future engineers and mates innumer- able opportunities to understand the workings of main engines, installation of pipe lines, and other intricate machinery problems. L m.mvm£i.ijR m na fijEQUtPiPiiwca ' T ' he shipping economics course is designed to inculcate Cadet-Midshipmen with a knowledge of the business aspects of shipping and ship man- agement to better equip them as ships ' officers, to give them an understanding of the relationship of the industry to the Government, and to familiarize them with the processes followed in the develop- ment and fostering of international commerce. The course embraces an outline of maritime history with emphasis upon the American Mer- chant Marine; a study of the world ' s ocean routes and principal world ports; a description of the several types of steamship services; the forms of organization and the functions of the various de- partments and officials: an analysis of Charter Parties and Bills of Lading and interpretation o the more important clauses; the fundamentals o Marine Insurance; the principals of Admiralty Law; Labor relationships and personnel manage ment; the details of ship ' s business and the prac tical aspects of steamship operation and main tenance.

The Cadet-Midshipman is shown. l)y a series of lectures, that there is an art to liandling men. He is taught what makes the Nayy function in its efficient manner, and the legal processes that are involved if an officer or enlisted man strays from the straight and narrow path. The nomenclature and use of naval weapons, placing emphasis on tlicir operation and care, is covered. Ordnance is given special attention, with intensive drills on the modern gun ramp, dismantling prac- tice in the Armory, and target practice on Academy training vessels and ashore. ■fjr r- ' il ii ' Ta " Pini.T.

(pcDiaiPiXEni r iirar iMMii I rKmBjMmTfcriiMiiMMiMMiMiaf lifHiM P KRHAPS SOME of tlie most pleasant reflections of life at tlie Academy will be returned to mind witli thoujilits of the Cliaplains. Men of all denomi- nations, under the sometimes oppressing burden of studies, have turned their backs momentarily, and hastened to them for sincere advice and encourage- ment. Wliether the troubles were large or small, tliey were at all times ready to help in their solution, and seldom have those seeking this aid been un- satisfied or returned to their daily stress without a new vigor to meet occurences of future life. In these years of world strife, when the young men of almost every nation have been called for- ward to a more re lentless, exacting life than they knew before, tlie need for a fuller spiritual existence is felt by all. In a part of this transition, Cadet- Midshipmen liave found the guidance to peace of mind sought for Ijy all in their Chaplains. Without tliem, this new life miglit lie fruitless and inesti- niablv more difficult. They have the thanks of all of us who knew them for the unselfish work they have performed in our part.

C IBiilD ii ll s N " s m.ai-].u W ECTION B-354 arrived at Kings Point February 1, 1944 to begin its nine montbs advance course at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. It was a cold, bleak winter day witli snow blanketing the grounds. Some of us had never seen snow be- fore, and to them it symbolized just one of the new experiences that stood before them. We were noted around the Academy as a sec- tion whose Cadet-Corps spirit and cooperation had seldom been equaled. It was because of these qualities that we enjoyed a pleasant nine months in our advanced training. Nicknames were soon adopted by tlie men and it was not unusual to hear a resounding voice in the hall thundering, " Hey, ' Russian ' and ' Beanpole ' ' Hawser ' wants to sec you in ' Cherub ' s ' room. " Tliese nicknames may seem like a minor detail but it is just one of the many reasons why we were so close-l)ound. We ' ll never forget the swell times we used to spend in Jim Wilson ' s room. To listen to him pluck his guitar, you would think he had Iieen serenading senoritas all his life. Section B-354 would gather round many a night and hold a song fest with Jim as our one-man band. As is true of every other section tliaf lias been at Kings Point, our main objective was graduation day. As the ninth month was turned to in our Academy calendar, we finally realized that our long awaited graduation day was soon to arrive. On Octojjcr 27, with our diplomas in our hand, and a smile stretching from car to ear, we bid adieu to our friends and Kings Point and set out to take over the jobs we were trained for — Engineering Officers in the Merchant Marine.

' ' It is our sincere Ijelief that we are the most easy going group of individuals ever to complete the prescribed course of study. Most of us were so content to live and let live that we per- mitted ourselves to fall into blissful ignorance of the fact that there were others on the Academy grounds who heartily disagreed with our policy. Our being in this frame of mind caused us often- times to make the mistake of flagrantly disregard- ing regulations, and the far more serious mistake of being caught at it. This is all history now, and in spite of our dark past, we feel sure that the Academy is as proud of us as we are of it. Some years from now many of vis will think back and try to recall to mind each classmate. In order to simplify this, we have made out the fol- lowing list of class members and the things which we will remember them by. Lest We Forget That Jim Broughton was the lone man to lose his ship by enemy action . . . Joe " Chowhound " Peltz, the only man to get fat on Academy food . . . Paul Stearns ' manner of getting in the last word, edgewise or otherwise . . . Bernie LTnschweif ' s ability to spread out 1,000 written words over one page . . . C. C. iVIagruder ' s marvelous endurance in doing squat-jumps ... J. J. " Pessimistic Jack " Man- ning saying, " Remember men, you can still flunk out in your thirty-fourth week " . . . Harry Craw- ford ' s many successful gala parties . . . Bob Tighe, tlie section leader, who was for the bovs . . . Lyle E. Jensen ' s clear elocution in class recitations which earned for him the title of " The Voice. " Harry " Astor Kid " Cowan ' s nimble wit and rapid- fire repartee . . . Harry Genemer ' s Pennsylvania Dutch mannerisms . . . Isom Conner ' s labor union arguments . . . " Skull " Donahue ' s falling hair, a source of section worry . . . Duffy ' s troubles with short bunks and blankets . . . Joe " Rut " Rutigliano, the only fellow in the section capable of fitting in a bunk sidewise.

To: The United States Merchant Marine Academy. Via: Midships. Sirl)ject: These last [N ine Months. 1. Section B-37] wislies to express its appreci- ation for the fine jol) that tlic United State Mer- cliant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York accomplished in performini; its mission — to train voiini; men to become Merchant and jNaval Officers of the United States. 2. e salute our instructors. e know that thev. like ourselves, were drawn from every section of tlie country and every stratum of life. Some of them learned the hard way at sea and passed to us that knowledge that can only come from experi- ence. Some of them iiad never l)een out to sea, but tliey. too. found the " how ' s " and " whys " of " Keep ' em Sailing " and then proved that superior know- ledge can overcome the obvious disadvantage of lack of experience. 3. Three cheers for the extra-curricular activ- ities and their sponsors. Vt e owe a great deal of thanks to them for providing a means of easing the tension built up within ourselves by a long and strenuous academic schedule. Sports, in the form of intramural contests were engaged in by all members of B-371. Football, basketball, baseball, track, and sailing all formed a sports program every Cadet-Midshipman was eager to participate in. 4. We wish to thank you for the opportunity of training as Deck Cadets on American merchant vessels, for only in this way could we have gained the practical knowledge necessary to all Merchant and Naval Officers. The ports we visited were in- teresting, and the experiences we encountered will never fade from our memories. 5. Finally, we would like to say " I ' ll he seeing you soon " to Kings Point. We of Section B-371 shall never forget the Academy and its traditions. Wherever our ships may carry us, whether it be East or We st, we ' ll always know that a Kings Pointer is near us, always ready to lend a helping hand if needed, and a firm handshake to once again seal the ties of good fellowship we gained at KiNGS Point.

As is the case witli practi- cally all newcomers, the ten week period was a reign of terror. We soon learned the meaning of Van Holderlin ' s words, " ' e are fated never to find peace here on earth. " The first academic leave appeared an impossibility. Then the miracle — the day for our leave DID finally come. After the ten week leave, life began to look up to section B 158. Cadet ofBcerships began ap- pearing in our group and we felt that we had really arrived. Our men were giving us new prestige: we were pioneers in the truest sense of the word. Those who had been faltering took a new lease on life. Following closely bcliind our ofiScers, came a new group of men prominent in wrestling, boxing, swimming, running, and baseball. In addition to these new activities, men of B 158 were instrumental in the founding of a First Class Committee, confident that this committee would later develop into the nucleus of our im- proved Academic spirit. e sincerely hope that those following will make an effort to expand that nucleus. Those days of study have passed and section B 158 lias a job to do ... a job of carrying life- blood to foreign nations ... a job of laying a firm foundation for Americas post-war Mercliant Marine ... a job of seeing tliat this Merchant Marine continues to be the finest Merchant Marine in the world.

Twenty-two we were in number, fresh from the sea, and representing the four corners of our nation. Classes started and we were surprised how rapidly the weeks passed by. Although week-end overnights were not to be ours, we can never for- get the Saturdays and Sundays alloted us. We be- came accustomed to Academy life in quick-time. Those dreaded tenth week examinations rolled a- round, which now, to look back upon, were a snap. Almost as quickly, it seems, we faced the " 24tli weekers. " Following our leave, the section returned with new strength. Our claim to fame is the athletic prowess of our section and our constant part-ownership of the extra-duty squad. The section soft-hall team were Regimental Champions. Some of us were members of liie Runner-up Champions baseball club. Otiicrs participated well in football, basket- ball, and track. Tiiree of our number became var- ious team captains. As for the " demo squad " — we placed members daily. We attribute our success to devout co-opera- tion and gladly pass this bit of information to all second classmen who might heed our advice. From the Academy we go forth to do the job for which we were well trained. We hope. that in a few years some of us may be Chief Engineers. To all of us it will be the first real job — a responsi- bility, a time to prove ourselves worthy of the con- fidence placed in us. We know we can do it and we will do it ! r JAMES E.

For nine long months we had lived, slept, and talked about classes, in- structors, sports, clubs, and most of all liberty. Those days are gone and we are now embarking on a career destined to take us to all corners of the earth. But before we shove off, let ' s take a short glance at the Academy life we are leaving behind. Our first month at Kings Point was spent planning vengeance on the bugler that woke us up every morning at 0550. Our hopes dropped how- ever, when we discovered that it was merely a record being played. Some enterprising members of B-162 still suggested that we track down the bugler who made the record, or better still, des- troy all such recordings on the grounds. Cadet- Midsliipman morning calisthenics were dear to all of our hearts. No matter how cold it was, or how hot it was, we were still out in the halls every morning doing the same routine. The chow we received in the morning started tlie day off with a bang! Eggs and sausages one day, and sausages and eggs the next day. That ' s what they call variety. I never " sausage " food. Ooooooohhhh! ! ! We must admit however, that the instruction we received in our classes couldn ' t be bettered any- where. B-162 was known by our instructors as a group that never had a peer for scholarship. When liberty call sounded on Saturday, woe be the Cadet who blocked our path. Where did we go? Now where would any good little boys go after a grueling week of classes. You guessed it — Astor, Commodore, Penn, Lincoln, Dixie, and New Yorker Hotel ' s, Iiere we come! A favorite haunt of B-162 was Central Park. We went crazy over those long walks in the park — and who can tell who one might meet. Twenty-three Cadet-Midshipmen of Section B-162 received their diplomas on November 10, 1944. Not a one will ever forget Kings Point. You can bet on that! J, JOSEPH I.

I ' m here to show you around and let you see what you have come hack to. Hey, you! Take your hands out of your pockets. You ' re not on a ship how. " That was our greeting when we stepped off the Academy hus that brought us to Kings Point. We saw a lot of " Sarge " during our nine months advanced training and soon accepted him as one of the traditions at the Academy. Hut-two-threp-four, Hut-two-threp-four! He had B-173 on the drill field every drill period, giving us commands, condemning some, praising others, until we ourselves had to admit that we were pretty good. When we weren ' t marching, we were in classes. We never expected to come hack to a course as comprehensive as we had. We studied everything from Gyro to Ship ' s Paper Work. Navigation, Ship Construction, Physical Education, Seaman- ship, Cargo. Signalling, Naval Science and Tactics, and Boat Drill were only a few of the many courses we were obliged to take. When B-173 decided to participate in extra- curricular activities, we didn ' t forget the Drill Team. Here again we bumped into our old friend, " Sarge " ' He was the sponsor of this activity, and a person we all enjoyed working with. Before we knew it the nine months were over, and we were up on the stage shaking hands with Captain Stedman on graduation day and receiving tlie fruits of our labor — our diploma. Our wel- coming committee of one had received his stripe ' now, but when we said our goodbye to him it was still — " So long, Sarge. " ROBERT B. ACKERBURG Park Ridge. Illinois FRANCIS J.

The fact appalled me. How were these mortals any better than I? They were made out of the same material. They functioned the same as I did. I simply couldn ' t understand it. I soon found out why I had to make this late exit. It feels pretty darn good to have somelsody around that ' s lower than you. Why, when I re- turned as a second classmen those poor prelims lost all faith in humanity after listening to me boss them around! But things are tough all over. I met my new section at the District Instruc- tor ' s office in New York in February, and was quite disappointed to discover that my gold Ijraid was not the only gold braid that turned green. The way my new section mates would sling the " lingo " around you would think they had been going to sea for the last sixty years instead of six months. " Let ' s go topside, matee. " " Fist on to the log, buddy. " " Half-mast the shades, Mr. " " Let ' s anchor out in the stream until the D.I. comes. " Yes, B-275 sure was made up of a group of old salts from way back. But brother, you should hear the same guys now. In a few days the green braid suddenly turn- ed gold. The salt that covered our personalities dissolved into the atmosphere at Kings Point. Nine months at tlie United States Merchant Marine Academy had transformed our section into a group of Merchant and Naval Officers, any Skipper would be proud to have under his command. I graduated with my fellow section mates on November 10, 1944, and never did a handsomer group of men gather on one stage to receive their diplomas. But we ' re all shipping out again now, and that nice, shiny, one-half inch gold braid will once again undergo a color transformation. But who are we to complain. We like it !

THE MONTH known for its l)risk winds and its remarkable knack for tossing girls skirts high. wide, and handsome, also tossed Sec- tion B-266 into the laps of the Regiment of Cadet- Midshipmen at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. We shall always he ahle to claim the distinction of graduating as one of the largest sec- tions of Cadet-Midshipmen, witli twenty-six of us receiving our diplomas. The men in B-266 were active in extra-curricu- lar activities such as indjammers, Polaris, Mid- ships. Sound Off. football, wrestling, boxing, baseball, dance committees, and camera club. This doesn ' t imply that we neglected our studies as proved by the six star men who attained their scholastic awards by achieving a 3.4 average in their studies. Cadet-Officers ' gold braid was not lacking since we had our full share, including two Company Commanders. In a recent poll of our section the question was put, " What is your ambition in life? " It seems as if this engine section had been at Ki.ngs Point too long, as the stock answer was to get married and raise a family. One Cadet went so far as to say that his amI)ition is to be another Father Dionne. Yie left Kings Point with our diplomas No- vember 24. 1944. just in time to help the Academy get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Whether Kings Point was offering up thanks for the blessing of getting rid of B-266, we don ' t know (we ' re just kidding I. but w ' c were giving thanks that we were privileged to graduate from tlie United States Mer- chant Marine Academy as Licensed Engineering Officers.

Everyone crowded into the lounge, looking our new section mates over. Some we knew from preliminary train- ing, and some we were meeting for the first time. Everyone had a story to tell — how he went ashore in Algiers and " borrowed " a camel to see the town, or the time he went to Hawaii and learned how to hula-hula with some princess, or the time he land- ed in England and converted the " Limies " to the graceful art of jitterbugging. Oh, we had our tales, and we didn ' t try and hide them either. All this was forgotten soon enough however. in the middle of our ten-week examination period. If there were going to be more trips and experi- ences like the ones we had related before, we were obliged to complete nine months of Navigation, Ship Construction, Seamanship, Cargo, Radio, Sig- nalling, and anything and everything connected with tlie successful operation of a merchant or naval vessel. Not a man in Section B-377 was absent from the roster of at least one extra-curricular activity. We realized that if we were to receive our licenses and ship out as Merchant or Naval Officers, we would need some relaxation, for as the adage goes, " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. " November 24, 1944 was graduation day. We were now ready to sail out and again encounter those experiences a man can only obtain at sea. RICHARD A.

KELLY Denison, Texas 119 FXTION B-168 entered the Academ y from sea training on the tenth of March, 1944, and after spending the usual indoctrination weeks in Fur- useth Barracks, twenty-eiglit slightly bewildered second classmen wheeled their gear over to Murphy Hall to begin nine months in which they were, as a section, and as individuals, to contribute an out- standing record to the Academy. " One-sixty-eight " got off to a rather bum start, running afoul of practically all established regula- tions, as well as most of the written ones; curtain lectures by harried Cadet Officers were not infre- quent: " Couldn ' t you please be good boys, etc., etc. ... " Well, it all goes to show that wayward Cadet-Midshipmen can be reformed, for now, as winter approaches, and the shoulder boards are being stripped down to the long-anticipated " re- tired " propellers, we find that the section has pro- duced far more than its share of leadership in the regiment — a far cry from the salty, unruly lads who defiantly expected nothing but grief as they sloshed around in that last big snow back in April. Johnny Waltzer, an early " eager beaver " and member of the Rifle Company, rose to the Regi- ment ' s highest rank . . . and there ' s First Battalion Commander " Manny " Salerno, the boy who revised Infantry Drill Regulations to suit himself with his famous command to his battalion of " LEFT TURN . . . YO! " Carroll " Shoulders " O ' Brien has run the Fifth Company as long as anyone can remem- ber, not without taking a Regimental Review . . . and throwing a party for his company to celebrate it. Commissioned Cadet Officerships were also held by Cadet-Midshipmen Robandt. Brewton and Nichols. A history of the section would be incomplete without mentioning the contributions to the Acad- emy of one Warren " Smitty " Smith, who served for many months in the inconspicuous posts of Circula- tion Manager, and later. Business Manager of Po- laris. He has seen bis publication grow to receive national recognition, and the magazine today is a great tribute to the efforts of " Smitty " and his co-workers. Academically, B-168 has had its ups and its downs, as the rest. Suffice to mention the especially outstanding work of Cadet-Midshipmen Waltzer, Smith and Salerno. ,P-S« « RUSSELL R.

Our indoctrination period proved a success and with anticipation we entered into our class sched- ule. We were rudely sliaken, however after our first week of classes, with the realization that our vacations were over and that we were headed for nine montlis of hard work. As we look Ijack now, though, we realize that without the able guidance of our fine instructors, our time here would have proved much more difficult than it actually was. As time went on we found that the Academy wasn ' t all work, as witness our never-to-lje-forgot- ten dances, our week-ends and tlie fine friendships that we made here. Henry Dolan, " the Mother " of our section; Roy Knull, " Brooklyn ' s gift to us " ; Bill Bernstein, " The Battler " and all the other boys that made up our fine section . We point with pride to the section ' s accom- plishments, and to name a few: the fine cadet of- ficers our section produced; the incorporation of singing in ranks; two first string baseball players, Danny McDonald and Tom Simmans and last but far from least, we ' re proud of Joe " Bulwork on the defense " Capcllo, tlie Academy ' s original " Um- Ijriago. " Now that we are graduating it is probably safe to quote Gimner Spurr ' s opinion of us as a march- ing section, " Tlie only walking reciprocating engine that I have ever seen. " In closing our final chapter at the Academy we wish to express our appreciation for the excellent training that we have received here and we leave with the firm conviction that we are thoroughly equipped to enter our career as officers of tlie Merchant Marine.

From the day that classes started, time fairly flew for us, and by the arrival of our first academic leave our ranks were still almost intact. Then, with our first set of exams out of the way, our section mates be- gan to extend their efforts to include participation in many of the various extracurricular activities here. Our second academic leave, held up for one week by the arrival of the First Congressional Board of Visitors was none the less welcome, but upon our return for the final stretch home we found that our ranks had been somewhat thinned by the aptitude board. However, several Cadets who had been held back from advanced sections due to illness joined us at this time, well making up for our losses. Our section was a particularly active one around the academy. We counted two company commanders among our section mates, and our members were active on Sound-Off, as well as several of the athletic teams — the wrestling team alone included four of us within its ranks. Finally on the afternoon of November 24, 1944 we received our licenses and diplomas on the stage of Bowditcli auditorium, bringing to an end our training period. Graduation leaves us with many fond memories of Kings Point and the Cadet Corps, as we go forward to new responsibilities as officers of the United States Merchant Marine. SAMUEL APPLEBAUM Brooklyn.

We had sailed the seven seas and had learned during that time what made a merchant vessel tick. We visited foreign ports, most of which we had never dreamt of seeing. But the glamour of our training was now at an end, and we were ready to settle down for our theoretical training in engineering. Our nine months of advanced training began in March, 1944 and terminated exactly three years after the declaration of war. During those nine months it was one continuous grind. Up at 0550 . . . Cadet-Midshipmen morning calisthenics . . . morning chow at 0630 . . . cleaning our room until colors at 0800 . . . classes imtil 1130 . . . noon chow at 1130 . . . classes again until 1630 . . . again chow at 1630 . . . study hall at 1930 . . . taps at 2200. This routine was fortunately interrupted by the great variety of extra-curricular activities, movie shows, smokers, and most of all by that long- awaited weekend liberty. Boxing, wrestling, football, basketball, sailing, and track comprised our sports schedule. B-172, without a doubt had the championship basketball team, although no official tournament was declared. December 8, 1944 we gathered for the last time in Bowditch Auditorium to receive from Captain Stedman our diplomas. Again we were ready to set sail for distant lands, but this time as enginering officers in the United States Merchant Marine. LARS LA VERNE LARSEN Afognak, Alaska Propeller Club CHARLES R.

Since that time the snow has melted away and the trees have leafed out and heen frozen bare again. We have seen three seasons come and go during our nine months here at the Academy. Every one of us was greatly surprised at the Academy. For many of us, this was the first visit to Kings Point, and no one failed to enjoy the broad lawns and white buildings. Those who had their basic training here were impressed by the growth of the Academy in the six short months that they had been away. Our section was well represented in all activ- ities on the base. Those who betrayed the section by joining the ranks of the cadet officers were: Peterson, who commanded the fourth company, and DeLaski, Watson, and Hoffman. Watson was the " 4.0 " man for the section and wore tlie schol- astic star. Of all the technical training we had received in nine months at King ' s Point, we are forced to consider this of only secondary impcfrtance. Our training has not been merely the accumulation of knowledge. More important has been the realiza- tion of America ' s new role on the seven seas. Into this new role we firmly believe Academy graduates will have an important part. Herein will lie the Academy ' s international fame and respect . . . Herein will lie her greatness. JAMES E.

As we stepped on the stage of Bowditch Audi- torium on December 8, 1944 our thoughts went back to the many experiences that were ours in the last nine months. We remembered the large group of Cadet-Midshipmen, wearing their hard-earned two class stripes, gathering at the District Instruc- tor ' s office in New York. We remembered how we were informed by the District Instructor of the grueling task that lay before us at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. We remember the long bus ride that brought us to Kings Point, and the sullen looks that could lie seen on each and every one of our faces. We remendier our in- doctrination period and the agonizing period of taking imnumization injections that left our arms sore and adiing for weeks. e remember our first week of watches that preceded our class schedule. e remember those viscious first ten weeks of studying, sweating, and tearing our hair out, trying to get accustomed to the Academv routine. We remend)er the long awaited ten-week leave, the leave that followed our twenty-four week exami- nations, and finally the last few weeks of license preparation which we were given to prepare for our license examinations. We remember those examinations we took a short while ago, and the perspiration that litcraly dripjjcd from our bodv during this time.

At the start the section had its first setback by having a long indoctrination of four weeks. The men were anxious to sink their teeth into the course instead of marking time. They finally did get started and it wasn ' t long before calenders were all scrawled up with days being marked off. Each day brought them closer to their dual goal, graduation and the license. It didn ' t take long for the section to get on the hall with their studies and then seek outlets for tlieir spare time. Men of the section entered tournaments and joined up with clubs, teams, and publications. By the time the first academic leave came Section B 376 was known throughout the academy for their rep- resentation on all the Academy ' s activities, not for- getting the extra duty squad. On through the hot summer the section firmly entrenched itself as part of KINGS POINT. By fall the section boasted a few cadet officers, company commander of the Rifle Company, golf champion of the Academy, five members of the Third Battalion football team, the First class vice- president, chairman of the First class committee of the Third Battalion, a drummer and bugler in the Drum and Bugle Corps, circulation manager and public relations director of Polaris, as well as being the best singing section of Kings Point. B 376 has since departed to the four corners of the earth but their spirit and good-fellowship still echo from the walls of Fulton Hall.

Returning from sea training, to the United States Merchant Marine Academy as Second Classmen, Section B-287 never quite com- pleted a transition to the life at Kings Point. The early training was evident even at the last class formations. While other sections would still be gathering up hooks in their barracks, we would be mustered in front of Delano Hall, each man swear- ing he would never pull such a trick again so as to become a member of the extra duty squad. Section B-287 did place one proud mark on its record. During its nine month stay at Kings Point it was the Academy ' s crack marching outfit. The only explanation we can give is that we are all grandstanders. In practice drills we did every- thing wrong, but when the day of the big show came, it was another story. Not another section on Kendrick Field was as sharp as B-287 when the iuateff Qerrmier ??, J9-M command came, " Pass in review! " Lucky was the company that we marched with! Studies didn ' t mean a thing to us. Scholastic stars were the run in our little group. Our instruc- tors would go around pulling out their hair (what little was attached to their scalp) when one of our members would invariable say, " But sir, we did it like this on our ship. " Now what is a poor instruc- tor going to do when this happens? Our cracker- jack football team was the talk of tlie Academy. Although we did not quite make the headlines, we were the undisputed Academy football champions. But what does all tliis lead up to? That ' s right! You hit it the first time. Graduation. What a day it was when B-287, in all its majesty, stepped on to the stage and received their diplomas. Yes we think we are pretty good, and if you were in our shoes, you ' d think so too.

Entertainment was never lacking during our associations with one " Chet " Mitchell. The Deli- cious Delectahles Department was very ably handl- ed by Lee Moore. " Warhead " Davies, President of the Tin Fish Club; Jerry Engle, active in First Class Committee affairs; and " Sleepy " Hoffman Vice President of tlie Propeller Club and a member of the Tliird Battalion footljall team, are all to l)e complimented on their fine work in these organiza- tions. Steve Stanuliewicz will be remembered as the star of the Third Battalion football team. Mike Russak, and New Jersey ' s favorite son — Jim Naulty, were active in the sixteenth company basketball team. Pottsville born and bred, " Curly " Dengler had some great oratory possibilities, but they were generally interrupted by, " This is all so silly, " from " Bo " Mach. Just when the future looked darkest, one could always find courage by watching " Hawk " Harris carrying out his regular Friday evening ritual of eliminating another week from tlie course outline chart, and then polisliing up that l)ig gold star. Other members of the Order of the Golden Star art " Champ " Bacliteal and " Goose " Goostrey, who put the Rules of the Road under his pillow every night for luck. During hundreds of miles of marching about the grounds, the self-appointed Chamber of Com- merce, Ken Herman, kept our minds, and his, off our feet with his interesting travel talks. " Booker T. " Kruse, tlie ever faithful section leader, whose efforts we greatlv appreciated, was ably assisted by our trained seal, Dick Perry, in counting cadence. Out on the Sound, the Bosun from Mathews County, " Up Behind " Capman, really reached his zenith in showing us how they do it down home. Speaking of zeniths. Bill " Nathaniel Bowditch " Snell, is predicted the most likely one to become the world ' s most famous navigator. Our candidate for Hollywood, who should qualify as a second Fred Asataire is " Pinky " Ettenger. Jim Lenihan should do very well on the radio as the Singing Irishman. We understand that " Moonshine " Rouse may join the Revenuers down in Tennessee, and Evan Rubino is expected to break more feminine liearts than did Rudolph Valentino. CLARENCE DENGLER Pottsville.

Illinois ' - - -■ Jt T WAS A brisky day in March when Section B-280 gathered in New York at the District Instruc- tor ' s office. Twice before we had gathered here — once in civilian clothes upon assignment to pre- liminary training, and once as Third Classmen awaiting assignment to vessels. After our sea train- ing we came back once again, this time to enter the United States Merchant Marine Academy for our advanced training. Nine months lay before us, and it seemed like the day would never arrive when we, as all the sections before us, would stand up on the stage in Bowditch Auditorium and re- ceive our diplomas of graduation from Captain Stedman. After a week of watches and a week of indoc- trination, B-280 got off to the start of its academic schedule. Ten weeks of classes ened with the ten- week examination, after which we received a ten- week leave to recuperate. After this period, which is known as the " breaking-in-the-Cadet-Midship- man-just-l)ack-from-t]ie-sea " , or " know-the-reason- why " period, things began to settle. Our studies seemed to come a little easier now. and we found more time to indulge in recreation and extra-cur- ricular activities. Football, bascljall, basketball, wrestling, boxing and sailing teams dominated our sports schedules. We are known as a rugged section and proved this by whipping every other section in most sporting contests. We also had our repre- sentatives on the publications such as Polaris, Midships, and Sound Off. The period between mess and study hall was utilized in the form of Academy clubs as the Camera Clid), Propeller Club, Windjammers, and Rostrum Debating So- ciety. Decemljer 22, 1944 we graduated. Vi e then realized that the day that we had thought would never come was here at last. B-280 had marched to Bowditch Hall for the last time that dav. ANDREW M.

Certain outstanding things, which have oc- curred time and again during the nine months of advanced training, might bear mentioning — such as those thirty-four clean linen days when " Ten- nessee " French painstakingly made his sack at 6:05 only to rip it up with tears in his eyes a few min- utes later — with the whole section at the door. Or those long, hard nights when " Sparks " Dour labored to teach his three room mates, " Mar- linspike " Shutts, " Slits " Stanton, and Baglama " The bomb thrower " the principles of radio. And there was always a knowing smile on the faces of the section when those letters came to 2228 address- ed to " Wamsky " Manske! But other evenings there would be tears in the section ' s eyes wlien we had to watch " King " Herzog marching with the extra- curricular men over and over again! A familiar scene, about Thursday, was " Golden Gloves " Gibson writing to a certain Barbara for permission to go on liberty the coming Saturday. He almost always got it too! However, a more fre- quent scene was John Knecht and " Molotov " Hut- ters sitting around a smoky card table ! A word of thanks must be extended to " Mac " McGrath for the exams he tried so hard to talk the instructors out of — even if we did have to take them the next day! And to " Swords " Treakle for trying to change the inspector ' s mind on when we do sit and when we don ' t! All appreciated, men! We know that the Academy will never forget its pioneer in " Academy Football " , Pat Getchell! It could all have been much harder if " Moose " Lautenschlager hadn ' t been our benevolent com- pany commander who overlooked those little things which make men wind up on that famous team. Another supported to this cause was our regimental man, " Little " Howarth. A farewell thanks to our section leader " Bo- sun " Bigelow, who has more than one gray hair worrying about the behaviour of B-191 in places where behavior counts. He faced a tough struggle to keep himself off the sheet and get B-191 to that stage on Decem])er 22nd. W e made the stage — but poor " Bosun " made the sheet. But now it is all behind — it was pleasant and it was tough. Section B-191 has graduated. 0 CHARLES BAGLAMA ALAN D. BIGELOW VINCENT E. DOUR JAMES C.

" This we found to be true during our sea training. Oh boy, what a campus! From London to Guadalcanal, B-293 had travelled. We had seen things and we had done things — some good, some bad. The good things — we are so tired of talking about we just can ' t talk about them any more. The bad things — well, we ' ll just keep them. Anyway, we all gathered in New York at the District Instructor ' s office March, 1944, a big, wide grin stretching from cheek to cheek, and a question mark on our faces denoting the uncertain events that lay before us. The big, grey United States Merchant Acad- emy bus brought B-293 to the gates. e climbed off the bus and started looking around for the porter to carry off our bags. Finding that there were no such creatures at our new homes, we pick- ed up our bags with a shrug and hauled them to our barracks. Ah, what splendor . . . What magnifi- cent boudoirs. Lace curtains, Chinese rugs, barbe- que fireplaces, and innerspring mattresses greeted our eyes. HO ARE E KIDDING? But it really wasn ' t so bad after all. Nine long months of studies. We thought we knew all about Navigation, Seamanship, Cargo, Gunnery, Radio, and all the other affiliated sub- jects. At least that ' s what our " old man " would tell us. We were in for a surprise. It was a pleas- ant one because we were being trained in these subjects to a greater degree than we had ever dreamed of. New methods for working our sights, different types of splices, improved ways of stowing Cargo, gunnery developments that had occurred since we departed on our sea training, and a more intensive course in radio were offered us. ' hen the nine months of advanced training liad drawn to a conclusion, we finally realized that although our campus was the seven seas, the greater and more important part of our education was achieved at Kings Point.

We l ase this conviction on the fact that we had such imique section memhers. It was tlie men in the section like " Doc " Schnoor, who kept off the extra duty squad for eight weeks although lie was room captain for that time, " Mac " Rebouche, who had the quality of being able to sleep riglit through a study period, along with having the room being inspected, and the three brains of the section — Ray Rhodes, " Muscles " TurnbuU and ' Reggie " Otto. Bill Roark went by " Betty Biceps " and praise the Lord when he wrapped his arms around you. " Mouse " Cooper was married within a week after graduation, but the boys had done a splendid job of indoctrination. " Beaver " Scott studied occasion- ally but never let the books interfere with those letters to Patty. His books by the way did a most profitable business during the football season. " Erk " Doran was number tjirce in the section and, yes, he was the one caught typing our radio note while sitting for his license. Then there was " G. T. Teemly " Smith. Just ask him what he thinks a- bout the Stork Club. " Nick the Greek " Samaras was one man that never let the moring exercises bother him. " Happy " Happ never had any woman trouble. What a man! Oh yell ! " Ubangi " Urban was his one consolation. " Little Stud " Ayres always remained neutral in the radio Ijrawls. Had he not, the West end of the third deck of Jones Hall would no longer be intact. " Robot " Hewitt was the only member of the Tin Fish Club in the section. " Lew " Lewis didn ' t quite run a kitchen, but my, those snacks were delicious. ' Moo Cow " Motowski was the photographer that had a tape worm, and nobody ever found out how he put away so much chow. " Scotty " Knox always made liberty mean something to him. He didn ' t waste a minute of it getting back and fourth to the Academy in his car. " Meat Ball " is the gentle sounding name given to Company Commander Beck. It was in the twilight of the course that " Griff " Griffith met B-395. To prevent any misconception of how success- ful the future is to be, B-395 sat before the license Inspector on January 1, 1945. Do you remember? f . FRED D.

The historians of the future might rup out of material and also for the few laughs it may provide in the years to come. Let us start off with Jim Backer, the boy who drew all the beautiful blind dates. Then there was Joe Basco, or should we say, " next stop, Bayside " ? We ' ll never forget Walt Bosch, who could really crow and known to the boys as the cock of the sec- tion. " Lincoln will shine tonight " so says Bill Gumming. Bill Cunney and Frank McFarland, the first two boys to get their tickets. Next, our aid to Lt. Ellis, Chief Gyro Specialist, Jim Doran. Don Fellows, better known to the boys as scabs, the physio thcraphy kid. Bill Ford, coxswain of the regimental championship rowing crew. George " Grandpa " Kozak. George Green, our good friend, " Brutus " . Julius Greene, our communication expert and model man of tomorrow. Eddie Greenhood and his simple solutions will long he remembered. Don Lamer. Fred Astaire ' s closest rival . . . Joe Leal, our good neighljor from south of the border . . . Scott Litcher, who raved about sunny California, but did well enough in our own Central Park . . . Russ " Peck " Muir, who could always arrange a suite, in any hotel, for anyone, at any time — re- member the five star night at the Lincoln? Bill Ohanesian, our treasurer, who kept our financial records straight for nine months. Our great swimmer from Bridgeport, Bill Simone. " Heaven help the foes of Washington, and Flushing too " says Blaine Snider. Rudy Som- mer, our piano jazz man? Jim Tomeny, the deep south ' s most loyal son. Doug W agner, the " voice " that was never appreciated by the boys. Ralph Weir, who will always be remembered due to the fact that he left no voice for us to remember him by. Stan Winter, Brooklyn ' s first convert from Texas. Last but not least, Jack Hoover, our sec- tion leader, who helped us all over many rough spots at the Academy. As we leave now, licenses in our hands, we would like to leave a little parting cheer to the boys that follow us, " Remember B 299 made it " ! JOSEPH P.

As we leave the Academy for the last time and turn our eyes to the sea we would like to express our thanks to all those that made our way easier throiigli the Academy and to all the men that follow us tlirougl). we ' d like to say: " Good luck, fellows " . i ROBERT W.

Of course we like the place, or we wouldn ' t have come back from our sea training and spent nine months taking advanc- ed training at the United States Merchant Marine Academy. Of course there are a few things tliat we don ' t like . . . For instance there is extra diity squads, regimental drills, certain Cadet-ofiicers, getting up at 0550 every morning and doing morn- ing calisthenics, but everyone has gripes, and who are we to be different from anyone else. However, there are certain things that we will always remember as giving us a few moments of pleasure and relaxation to oversiiadow these gripes. There was always the liberty that we received after the reviews, the smokers that Captain Stedman held every month, the battalion dances in which we were allowed to show off our " one and only, " and the activities that were p revalent t Kings Point. Meml)ers of section C-301 could be seen daily with their cameras taking pictiu-es for tlie Camera CIuIj, or up at either the Polaris, Sound Off, or Alidships office eagerly putting together their publications. A few of us could be seen trot- ting down to tlie Sound and climJjing into our sailing craft during our free time. On the football field, the Ijasketball court, and the baseball dia- mond, C-301 was well represented. Cadet-Officers, although one of our pet peeves, weren ' t really so had. Many is the time they took us off report althougli we really were " bad little boys. " Studies? — Well, we ' d rather not discuss this suljject. All in all, we of C-301 graduated from Kings Point, with a feeling of great respect for it left be- hind at the Academy. WILLIAM S. BLOUNT Jetmore, Kansas JOHN S. CARSON Ardmore.

" It was May 19, 1944 and section B 394 was born. Some of us came from tankers, some from sardine cans, but most of us came from tbose " sleek EC-2 greyhounds of the South Pacific, poised for a mad dash north- ward. " Soon we had captured a corner in Jones Hall, right over the hallowed Regimental Staff, and dubbed it our private club. Life began in earnest. Donnelly demanded ' ' a little action! " Probus drew out his " slip stick " and solved all of our Thermo problems. " Money Bags " Oakley soon be- came famous for tliat " five imtil pay day " . . . We had discovered the Four Star!! Falke stopped the music and Hoefer got his first glimpse of the outside world, after his Sea Project episode. Mc- Cord kept searching the heavens for that " STAR. " And now, " Would we be safe in assuming that — ? " " Speed " Newman ' s orgies almost outshined Nag Nagurney ' s " frivolous statement " . . . We had discovered the G-A, but Hobbs kept running a- round Kendrick Field. ( Most of us used to march around it.) Oh!! The MPO ' s that march us . . . Peter Lane " distinctly remembered " , an d got the 16th Company. " Our Boy " McNamara wrestled his way to command the " famous 14th " and we were the first platoon. It all depends on yoiu- " attitude " . . .• " Lift that bale! " Iioomcd " Ole Man River " Heyl and Button hastened to his duties. " But fellows, she has her own car — " wailed Stringos . . .

His real name is Sec- tion C-103;a trim fellow, loyal as a bird clog, and and an all " round guy. You ' ve lived with his elbow in your back and your feet in his face for nine months. When you can still slap a man ' s back and call him " mate " with that background, you know he adds up. In civilian life, he ' s done lots of things; from building bridges to ranching. Where ' s he from? Many places — Frisco, Buffalo, New York; and there seems to be a very special girl back home — but he ' s a bit quiet when we mention that. " Rather on the mild side, " you say; " what ever made him come to the United States Merchant Marine Academy? " That ' s another thing about which he ' s rather quiet ; but sometimes you can see a cold light back in his eyes that makes you thank- ful he ' s on your side and not on the other. He ' s worked like a Trojan for the last nine month. Most of the time it hasn ' t been easy, but he ' s done his level best; you ' de ship with him anytime. He ' s personified in the fellow whom you didn ' t even see that morning you were behind schedule in preparing for Captain ' s Inspection. He came up from somewhere yanked up your trousers, button- ed your suspenders, put the hottons in your shirt without a word, and then was gone before you could turn to thank him. He ' s the guy wiio stood beside you when things were getting tough in those Navigation, Rules of the Road, Seamanship, and Naval Science examinations during the ten, twenty-four and thirty-four weeks. And, shipmates, when you come right down to it, it isn ' t tiie ship ' s or guns that are Merchant or Navy; it ' s the strong ties between men and their faith in each otiier that breeds the lofty tradition making the service what it is. !

In achievements, we owe recognition to our section mates that became company commanders: " Singing " Neukum, " Take Five " Smith, " Wing and Wing " Groome, and " Sack " Duffy . . . We are proud also of John Clark who became class presi- dent.

At this time, various retorts like, ' " Go? " " Now? " " That clock is fast " were forthcoming as we deliberated in 5231 where " Malaria Every Sum- mer " Andrews, the pride and joy of Arkansas, was hurriedly applying the last touches to his room — necessarily due to being Room Captain. Scrut- inizing his reflection in the mirror, there stood " Deacon " Doolittle, quite unconcernedly, brushing his golden locks. Raucous laughter draws our attention across the hall to 5230 where the " Smiling Irishman " McGovern, in all his splendor, is radiating his in- escapable good humor and geniality. " Pin-Up Boy " Boeckh, with his effervescent personality in full prominence, was aiding in the attraction, for it all centered about their roomate, " The Brain " Eason who was yearning to be " deep in the lieart of Texas. " As the laughter diminishes, temporarily, we are drawn to 5229, where reside tlie mainstays of our company ' s basketball team, " Dutch " Lumbard and " Pop " Kaufman. Here, too, there is an ex- hilirating gaiety as " Rapid Robert " Julian ex- presses his almost professional criticism to Polaris ' Art Editor, " Handsome Blackie " Bouffard; and " Pop " is paying strict attention, but with occasion- al interruptions, to one of " Dutch ' s " infamous ' fish stories ' . Traveling down the hall to 5227, we stop sud- denly as " Bulbous Bow " Slonim waddles out in front of us on round heels, and riglit behind him is " Weeper " ' liite, the president and chief recip- ient of our section ' s jokes. Tliey turn and listen as " Duke " Hatfield, the All-Regimental fullback, ex- plains to " Home Sweet Home " Harry Buikart, how ' they all love me ' . Finally, tlie section is mustered and we march off to the ' oval ' for morning colors. On the way over, we execute a smart ' eyes right ' as we pass our very own Company Commander, " Exercise " Todd Early. Further on, we spy the en T of the Regi- ment, our Third Battalion Commander, " Pete " ' Pedersen, standing at his usual stiff and rigid at- tention — an almost unbelievable stance. Only one man is missing, but we fear not, for he is " Regimental Business " Armbrust. c CLYDE S. ANDREWS MAYER R. ARMBRUST JOHN J. BOLFFARD W ILLIE E. DOOLIT Marianna. Arkansas Los Angles.

' ' _ N May 23, 1944, a weary fjroup of Third Class cadets, encrusted with the salts of all the oceans, gathered at the District Instructor ' s Office in New York to begin the nine months of train- ing that would make us the officers we started out to become so many months ago. We pause just a minute to look Ijack at the short time we spent togetlier. The first three weeks were spent gawking and griping alternately, but when classes started there was little time for gawking and even less for grip- ing. By the time we sweated out tlie Summer and half the Winter we had " Garry ' ' Reidel as Vice President of the Glee Club . . . Billy Barnet on Polaris . . . George Carlson running the Wind- jammers . . . Bob Cameron as Company Com- mander of the Rifle Team. Not neglecting schol- astics, we produced six star men: Mayer, Reidel, Foil, Fairchild, Ham and Molir. We also produced our share of Cadet Officers: Clem Mohr was a Company Commander . . . Beau Stafford was a Sub-Company Commander . . . Wee Williams as Battalion Commissary Officer . . . and " Red " Ham with one good solid stripe. When the day arrives for a Section reunion, Beau will still be singing and smoking a pipe with ' " Garry " keeping up, but choking on the smoke. ' " Brain " Mayer will be pushing buttons for an- swers, while Howard will methodically and neatly fill a huge notel)ook. Ohmer, Foil, and Mohr will still be battling over who is the biggest farmer; Williams will still be rolling; Ham will still be waddling; Muldoon will still be worrying about his Boston " ' blue blood " ; Clieany will still be wor- rying about his backstays; " ' Knobby " Knowlton will still be doing things backwards; " " Cal " Lenzon and " Shorty " Price will replay a football game; Bridge will be dreaming of collars; Dickerson, Brenneman, and Hastings will know the best spots in town: Cameron will have a new date; Carlson will not be studying; Barnett will be worrying a gal in Texas; Wingfield will be able to fix us up with a WAVE on twenty-four hours notice. Last but not least, Mezotti will still be telling us about the Hoogley River. BILLIE H. BARNETT Denliam Springs, Louisiana Rifle Company Polaris PHILIP A.

Friends were made and you will have to agree after reading the following that we were quite the section. " Rooster " agner was a star speed skater who represented the Regiment in several events, one of which was the Silver Skates Finals . . . Our foot- hall hero, McGooey met up with little opposition on the field, hut plenty when he tried to hox Frost. " Sleep Talker " Lenim kept his room mates awake by talking big business all night . . . " Mortician " Carrol, who prefers to be called " Funeral Direc- tor " , paradoxially enough, was our gag man . . . The reason why Gihnore and Petersen were always complaining about Cadet Officers in the section was l)ecause they were too self-conscious . . . " Bom- ber " Pavluk signed up for the " Golden Gloves " but the medical examiners decided it would be un- fair to the other contestants, so the Bomber signed a marriage certificate instead . . . " Jug End " Lane, ' t ' af ((atec eSyttajH 9, J9Jj5 who never missed a trick at the " Zoot " Frost, who sailed on a C-1 with internal explosion engines, made many friends on the demerit squad . . . and there was " Payzce " Payez who lived for the day he would become a shiny new Navy Ensign aboard a " Floating Dry Dock. " " The Philadelphia Kid, " J. B. Boyle, also the pool shark, informed the section of the latest styles in zoot suits and industry in the East. Vasbinder, the canteen cutie sent everybody a bridal book announcing his post-graduation wedding. " The Crutch " Denardis was the section ' s star " Gold- bricker " . " Sunday Night is the Loneliest Night of the Week " , sung by Shu Shu Schuster upon returning from Sunday liberty. " Lovely " Bailey put the show on the road every Saturday night, but he always made that bunk check. " Herr " Olson, our beloved section leader, always kept us on the ball. Alright, lets fall in.

Our period of training has seemed long and ardious, but with our conscience as guide, we all came througli. The days gone by will l)e memorable ones to all of us. Due to the strong characteristics of each and every member of the section, we propose to leave a last will and testament for the section. It would be a shame for any of us to carry away any of oia- out-standing virtues, so with the hope in our heart that some deserving plebe or second classman will fall heir to at least one of these fine traits, we will proceed with the business on hand. Rosaia leaves his penny pinching collar busi- ness to any needy person. Halvcrson leaves his many wholesale virtues. Master of Science and the father of our section. G. R. Smitii leaves a bulky gap in our pioneer football team. Holton leaves, taking with him tiie lowest center of gravity and the highest mental density any of the instructors have ever encountered. Owen leaves as a future bridegroom. " Swede " Peterson just seems to be leaving. " Crisco " Crites leaves his fatherly advice o some promising section leader. Johnson leaves wondering where the steam comes from that oper- ates a Diesel engine. Hinds leaves until the acade- my turns Co-Ed. " Sonny Sinatra " Hughes leaves his tender voice to any romantic plebe. Gates leaves his sail- ing exploits to the future commodore of the W ind- janiniers. " Gravel Gertie " Golitz leaves his bit of humorous wit to Sound Off. D. H. Smith leaves without cracking a book. White leaves his title of chief rumor-monger to anyone that wants it. Lee leaves his English literature behind for the more cultured C M. " Pretty Kitty " Keller leaves with his hot temper and a larger waistline. " Shy " Shaw, the sleuth, leaves because everyone else is. Grygo leaves his electrical genius to those in need. Pound leaves with a receeding hairline. Parker leaves this good advice: drinking, a bad habit; gambling, a deficit; Good study habits, a premium. Stewart leaves the warm radiator for the rock bound coast of Texas. As we now leave we would like to say that the Academy, it ' s traditions, fellowship and memories will 1)0 with us all to the four corners of the earth. U p — - » GEORGE R.

Hailini; from the " Pan Handle " was " Okie " Gulley, our conseripted section leader. Captain of the Color Guard and Third Batallion Football Captain. John Hall Griffith 2nd, answerin;; to the name of " Grif " , commanded attention when the topic of world affairs arose. Haggerty, the original answer man with a scholastic star, specialized in " hard times " for any or all who cared for tlie same — spent the summer drilling the Rifle Company in the capacity of sub-company commander. We had one soul who liked the " ehow " , " Weemie " Kleimenhagcn who was reputed to have eaten a long ton of hash during the thirty-four weeks. " Weiners und Sauer- kraut " were also consumed in large quantities dur- ing the same period. As for commuting lovers on short week-ends, " Bernie " Madrak filled the bill — runner-up for the title " Mr. Liberty Hound " of 1944. Who can deny that " Pete " Peterson far out- distanced all contestants in tlie week-end liberty sj)rints. Pete was a j)ipe and slipper man with a B.S. from Washington State, and a scholastic star from USMMA, spending his idle hours at hot bridge games with Gully, Haggerty, and Robert. Robert — {pronounced RrrOW-BEARrr I — the Ver- mont " frog " whose ski talk had us all slightly confused at one time or another. Those sweet odors that issued from Room 6201 found their source from " Hank " Marino ' s file of love letters. Three letters a day should make anyone a dreamer. The steadying hand during our periods of uncer- tainty was lent by " Crusher " Fialcowitz from " Nerk " ( pronounced Newark I — All-Regimental football center. Crooning his way through thick and thin we had " Frankie " Mathews the " Canteen Cowljoy. " The restricting item to his otherwise l)olished appearance being a mania for six-bit high pressure hats.

And so section C-302 of the Tliird Battalion, swiinfi into action to hejiin another greuling day on board the SS Kings Point. A day which in- cluded hectic grappling witi» soot blowers, drum actuated superheater pilot valves, j)olyphase sy- chronous alternators and all the otiier mechanical monstrosities with which tiie Engineering Depart- ment had casually chosen to render us insensible. The insensibility wore off toward Satiu ' day, how- ever, and the Iidshij)men in our Section swarmed ashore, eager to taste the freedom of a weekend in the metropolis. C-302 arrived at the United States Merchant Marine Academy in May 1944 to begin advanced training. For nine long months the SS Kings Point was our ship. e worked aboard her, ate and slept aboard her, taking to the gangway for classes and occasional liberty, returning smartly. Our stay aboard was interrupted occasionally by a few bombshells in the form of ten week, twen- ty-four week, and thirty-four week examinations. There were a few casualties, but for tiie most part, C-302 remained intact. After such actions, recuper- ation were siij)plied in the form of shore liberty. Liberty! A Ijcautiful word! And what it means to liberty-starved Cadet-Midshipmen is not easily described. In New York there ' s Central Park, for strolling, of course, and the art galleries are not to be forgotten, and there used to be the Aquarium, and the — oh, yes, the Astor. C-302 soon terminated its duty aboard the SS Ki.NGS Point and, with a hard-won commission achieved, received a transfcre to other vessels, carrying tlie section members and Kings Point tradition to the far-flunf; corners of the world.

We had sailed to every outpost of the world, worked on deck, taken sights, and enjoying liberty in ports which most of us had never dreamed of visiting. Yes, our campus was the seven seas. The green tint to our gold braid proved that. But here we were again, back in New York, ready to resume our academic training. We belive that in no other service academy has such a meeting been lield. Our nine months of training were crowded with a variety of subjects, some of which were Seamanship, Cargo, Naval Science and Tactics, Shipping Economics, Radio, Ship Construction. Rules of The Road, Rules and Regulations, and Navigation. We had received practical training in all of these subjects, but were now obtaining the theoretical knowledge necessary to supplement our experiences gained at sea. Men from every walk of life, every state in the union, were represented in Section C-115. All tried their hand at one of the many extra-curric- ular activities at Kings Point. It was not difficult to make a choice as the activities represented were Tin Fish Club, Propeller Chili, Polaris, Sound Off, Midships, Windjammers, Glee Club, Dance Band Rostrum Rifle Company, and Camera Club. Al though the United States Merchant Marine Acad emy was not old enough to engage in intercolleg iate competition, we had our intramural sports C-115 was active in intramural football, baseball, basketball, sailing, wrestling, boxing, and track. February 23, 194.5 we all gathered in Bowditch Hall to receive our long awaited diplomas of gradu- ation. C-115 then set sail again, not as Cadets this time, but as officers in the Merchant Marine and Navy. f NATHAN J. AVERICK Rock Island, Illinoi) JAMES G. BERRY Lawrence, Massachusetts EDWIN F.

True enough, we had about the average a- mount of trouble. Bill Rhoades (the " I ' m worried " boy " ) couldn ' t accept a baggage locker detail with- out taking it to the supreme court; L. J. (Opera- tor) Johnson just couldn ' t seem to hit it off with Big Red; and rather than get a job. Alec Pophoff had to come back three days early from leave. All in all, though, we had pretty smooth sailing, and even t ook time for sports. We had the Regimental championship sailing crew, namely: Reggie Bree- den, Connie Degel, Johnny Rothfuss, " Hoot " Camp- bell (coxwain) , and " Rackabore " Dave Grover. Dave held the record for sleeping in class, and was also a member of the Academy cross country team, along with Ross Saye (our number one swords- man) and " Chuckles " Dubinski. Harry (The Gull) Hunter was our fair haired boy on the swimming team; and our outstanding athlete was Big Nick Nikolaus. He was captain of the first Academy intercollegiate basketball game, (we won), and a football player too. Two of us decided to spend the war Navy style. They are Ashley Feltus (he is the guy who couldn ' t hear the instructor over the crackle of candy wrappers) , and H. Winsor Greene, who was not only a cartoonist, but a ventriloquist as well. Top honors for never being late to a ' muster go to Fred Maltman. " Sleepy " Bert Sommers held our respect for always knowing when to wake up, and we owe most of our nick names and 217 lingo to the hor- rible three — " Louisianna Slight " Lassus, K. R. Keith and " Alley Oop " Turner. Naturally the only man in the section who could compute his hat size by Pi R- was " Klondike " Nelson. We won ' t ever forget our five trips on the Willie Webb, which brings to mind our all-star steward ' s department — " Cugle " Manigold (the " tin-fish " expert), " Stars and Stripes " Dave Meyers, and " Swamp Rabbit " Lindquist. This is our swan song, and all that remains to be said is, ' Mold on, 217. " r I ALEC N. POPHOFF San Pedro, California ROBERT W.

After our introduction to tlie Regiment we met, as all pood sections do, the Battalion Extra Duty Squad and soon realized that the balmy pre- liminary days at Furusetli Barracks were over. During our stay here, however, we have had a growing " Espirit de Corps " inculcated. Now as we begin the job we were trained to do, we see clearly that we and our fellow alumni are the ones to make Kings Point succeed. The course has been ably charted ... it is now ours to follow. In a lighter vein we all know that every sec- tion has an individual character and some of us certainly are ' ' characters. " All remember Big Joe Graham ' s prodigous appetite . . .

Witii souvineers from all parts of the world clutched in our hands or stufifed in our seahags, eager to exhiliit these prizes to our new section mates, we gathered to get her at the District Instructor ' s office in New York. To our amazement the D. I. wasn ' t at all interested in our souvineers, but asked us politely about our sea projects. With this, we now realized that our life of leisure had now come to an end, and we were entering a life that was entirely different from tliat which we had experienced in our sea training. Back at the Academy, we buckled down to the routine of men who were in training to become future Deck Officers of the United States Merchant Marine. Courses followed that proved headaches to all of us. Sliip Construction, Navigation, Seaman- ship, Cargo, Naval Science, Shipping Economics, Signalling, and numerous other studies which wc so little realized at first would be of any use to us in the future. When our license examinations came around however, we saw readily the reason for the stren- uous course that was given us at Kings Point. A large body we had entered nine months ago, a small select group we were when we arrayed ourselves on the stage of Bowditch Auditorium to receive our diplomas from the Superintendent. ' ith the fine education we have received from Kings Point, we are now fit to go to sea again, not as Deck Cadets gathering up souvineers in foreign ports, but as Deck Officers, guiding our ships to dis- tant lands, in this present struggle, and in the peace that will eventually follow.

Remarkable too, is the unity they achieved considerinf;: the stronj; personalities of the section members. Topmost anionjr us was " Bif; Stoop " Dalley, lover of midnifjht inspections, followed jjy " Big Joe " Laukonis, whom New ork rolled flat. De- scending the height scale we find the Don Juan from the farmlands, Glenn Sowash. Our mental and athletic giant was " Red " klcinschmidt. Our southern gents were " Speedy " Pearce and " Handsome " HoUey. Our two chief contenders for the most demerits earned were John Weis and Ed Reardon. Along with Reardon, wc find his con- trasting roommates, " Playful " Welch and " Seri- ous " Allen. The old men of the section, Losin, " Pop " Clary, and Hoover carefully watched over their children. The " Lip " Schultz cracked his whip and W hitey Moore jeered while Falba yapped back in defiance. " Colorado " Jackson charmed us with his drawl, and " Romeo " Karpiej painted rare word pictures. " Marty " Lampark drank his midnight oil, but " Little Joe " Virostko burrowed his way through many a ])ook. Our donkey-toned Castle sang Alma Mater to the dismay of " Chubby " Maher, while suave Tommy Leeds smoothed re- lations. c » PAUL J. BAVLNKA Milwaukee. U i?ron in EDGAR S.

Tlie fog that we were in was only equalled by the atmospliere outside. As we sat in the straigiit-hacked chairs and looked at each other for tlie first time, we shuddered, and today, many months later, the same reaction takes place. The battle of Kings Point lias been a bloody one. Our ranks have been thrice decimated, but those of us who have survived leave witii a grim and triumphant smile, firmly clutching our licenses and commissions. We ' ll never forget : Harrington singing a solo, " Don ' t Fence Me In. " Trout organizing a post war Pepsi-Cola route; Davis ' s crimson, mandarin pa- jamas; Forrester mothering Neptune; Beckley ' s daily ten page letters to Naomi; Winter ' s excellent lectures in thermodynamics in double talk, and his after tap commercials. Bourque ' s tales of his Christmas leave; Laws ' six month wait for tickets for " Oklahoma " and tlien only to be snul)bed by fate, and J. F. W. Riley trying to tie his bunk down New Year ' s Eve; Ros- enberg consistantly wearing dungarees between 1720 and 1930 each evening. Blocklin ' s record in sick bay; Baker ' s notc- Ijooks; Bonoza advocating the classics for Marine Engineers: " Shakey " Harris and his last big week- end in town; Kent ' s worried furrow on his other- wise smooth brow; Renielman ' s impish grin; Beach and Budaji forever messing up films prior to show- ing them.

We came to the Academy to commence upper class training for nine months. It wasn ' t easy at first getting accus- tomed to an entire new type of life than we had had during our sea training. Kings Point was de- termined in its efforts to peel off the coat of salt that had gathered at sea. Needless to say it succed- ed. The first ten weeks, contrary to the popular saying, was the storm hefore the lull. In those first ten weeks Navigation, Ship Construction, Shipping Economics, Cargo, Seamanship, Naval Science and many other subjects were all thrown at us at once to see if we could take it. A few of us fell by the wayside, but the great majority stayed to enjoy the ten week leave that was our just reward. Bv this time, C-325 was coining into the lime- light as a section worthy of praise. The men en- gaged in extra-curricular activities such as foot- ball, wrestling, boxing, baseljall. Midships, Polaris, Sound Off, Drill Team, Windjammers, Propeller Club, and Camera Club. As is the case in every section, we also had our " Einstiens. " Yes, there were some men of C-325 who attained a 3.4 average or better to merit the wearing of the gold star on their uniform. Cadet-Officers soon dotted the ranks of our section. You could always tell these men by their straight posture, military bearing, and most of all, by the extra gold braid. All that was lacking was the " scrambled eggs. " That would come later tliough. Soon we completed the twenty-four and thirty- four week examinations, and also the leave that was our reward after the former examination per- iod. Tlie stage was set, the curtain was drawn, and we of C-325 made our grand entrance at Bowditeh Hall to receive those long-awaite d diplomas. Nine months wasn ' t so long after all, was it fellows?

' t ' ac aaM S imi 6, M5 ELL the First I ' ll be right down " was the general trend of thought when that first revielle sounded July 14, 1944. Since then the ominous tones of " recall from sack drill " have sounded many times and not only did each one instill a fresh dislike for buglers in the minds of the Third Battalion members, but also they cleared the decks for many memories which are solidly etched in the minds of the " Fighting Thirteen " . For instance — " Pinhead " Swingle ' s narration of the gruesome six months on " de nort atlantik, " " Commander Pike " Sherlock ' s narrow escape with the pin-up girl, and the " Desert Fox " Carter and his solid renditions of Gilbert and Sullivan. How about the time Cookie and Hokr toasted noses over a hot valve chest down in steam laboratory. Nineteenth week memories included the slips signed " See Me — C M Peter Constas, Bow-Wow, " and department administrator. Miles Tourison ' s gripping description of just how the junior aide entered the tonsorial parlor. Censored, are all thoughts concerning the the fateful twenty-four weekers. Also censored are many of " Killer " Kane ' s detailed sea stories, and the epitaths emitted by Gondola when he found himself head man at the pompous Change of Com- mand ceremony. Unforgettable also are Joe ( (The Voice I Lud- wig ' s scrupulous care of the coiffeur when applying the watch cap, and " chief caretaker " Seels ' undy- ing love for " Arnold " the pet cricket of 6219. Also of interest was Rybarczyk ' s lack of demerits and his abundance of cold cash. » ' 0c:p IB flH OB JAMES J. GONDOLA DUDLEY M. TOLHISON NORMAN W. CARTER P.

First there was Anzio, the boy with the twenty- twenty vision, lead off man, first seat, first row. Binig and ' " Dilbert " Sampson, Commodore and Admiral of the sailing club.

Small in number, C 218, never the less, left it ' s indelible mark wherever it ' s members chanced to stray. Walters scored on the Island, Schmid, in New Jersey and Christensen, alias the " Claw " , made a big hit with the Waves. We will long remember the epics of " Ears " Meyers and his " Brush Fiction " and our gift to the chicks that flew too low, " Sharp-shooter " Work- man. The picture remains quite incomplete how- ever, until we turn the spotlight on the " Scroll and Pen " boys, namely, the brains of the outfit; Fitz- patrick, Winans, Gresham and the " Masher " Kram- arich. Classes would have been dull, however, without " Bones " Welk stretched two chair lengths across the room. " Xray Eyes " Cheesman will be remembered for his many friends in sections slight- ly ahead of us. We think that " Sack Driller " Gizzmo deserves a hand for being able to snore his way through reveille five times before he found out that it wasn ' t church call. Gizzmo, by the way, is one of Gibbons ' aliases. We ' re proud to have the 2nd Battalion Com- mander, Isham, in our section. Other section mates that distinguished themselves as Cadet Officers were Regimental Security Officer Wolff, Sub-Company Commander of the 10th Company, Maciorowski, and Platoon Commander Walters. These " Eager Beavers " were our " father confessors " who listened to all our gripes and kept our section on the ball. All kidding aside, we ' re proud of them and the fine job that they have done.

Stepping forward to lead us through those tough first weeks was Section Leader Carl " Hosenose " DeLorenzo. A few weeks were spent in Furuseth Barracks, and then we moved to our more perma- nent home in Jones Hall. The late summer routine of Regimental Pa- rades, inspections, and, of course, classes, was broken by the big hurricane in September. In addition to raising our morale wliile working to clean up after the high winds, we gained a little extra liberty. bile cleaning the derbis, ' " Nick " was seen in the upper branches of a frail tree — proving that Deckmen were not the only ones to climb dangerously aloft. The first Academic Leave found 18 survivors returning for the studies ahead. " Gas Bag " Thorne, who served a hitch in the lighter than air outfit, was fast becoming our stand-by for those answers that " just weren ' t in the books. " Third Battalion dances didn ' t dazzle us too much as " R. O. " Redman, Jerry Ogle and John Stephens (the T-2 boys), and " Red " Steedley, our hero of the Cherbourg Peninsula, could be seen with most charming dates at one of the nicer Long Island Clubs. Our section was blessed with two Cadet-Officers about this time — Bill Steiger and Bob Hope (I4th Company Commander. I There are many points of interest that will surely be lasting: " Si " Gilbert, the Broken Arrow kid was at ease handling the fairer sex . . . Jim Hudnell was at the telephone . . . Al Amnions joined the section about the twenty-fourth week to swell the roster slightly . . . " Skippy " Sinks listened to late radio programs on a crystal radio receiver . . . AI Paolino really cover- ed the miles with his Buick . . . and the " Blue Bolt of Brooklyn " caused plenty of smiles, not to men- tion Bob Engel ' s " Live and Play in Rockaway " fame. After an enjoyable section party, with Spring just around the corner. Section C-320 took license examination to satisfy the Inspectors, and on April 20, the section changed from an " is " to a " was " as we go our ways with hopes of meeting each other in a bright future. The memories will always last. 9 1 OB CARL DcLORENZO R. B. ENGEL ONISJ. BILBERT ROBERT A. HOPE Bridgeport, Connecticut Rockaway Beach. Long li-land.

It took eight days in all, hut finally, we had 31 salty young hearts with which to hegin our nine month trial run. Activities were numerous and our stalwart lads soon took over. Studies, " HUH! Plenty of time for them later. " The rifle company attracted our mili- tarists — Hitchings, Schnell, Chatfield, Ph illips, Lind, and Heidkamp. Our whiskey tenors — Ma- lone, Neely, and Olson were inducted into the Glee Club. Sharp, our artistic " windjammer " , became Art Editor of Polaris. Thompson, Withers, and Chatfield graced the Propellor Club Roster. Yi e had a few cadet officers by now and things were looking- better. Lo and behold! We were First Classmen. Our " Cadet of Cadets " , Hitchings, became Battalion Commander. Bronner became a member of our highly touted Wrestling Team. Vantine was saved from a watery grave by the use of the breeches buoy. Our gold stripes multiplied: Neely, Bronner, and Schnell became 15th, 17th, and 18th Company Commanders, respectively; Heidkamp retired as Company Commander of the Drill Team to become Battalion Security Officer; Philips became a Platoon Commander. Then, we sighted land, position — Second Academic Leave — 26th week. Much talk, many plans, and it all went fast but left memories. Sharp, Schnell, and Jupp went skiing. Jupp earned his gym pass with a " Schuss Boom. " Neely returned late — but engaged. Malone was late again. Withers, our sit-up special- ist, returned out of condition. The rest of us strag- gled aboard — a weakened crew. Things began to happen; section leaders changed; our Ace Mahar was succeeded by Malone, who gratefully turned it over to Olsen. Our brains. Sharp and Vantine, received their Scholastic Stars — ver-r-y fitting, and soooo shiny. Estimated Time of Arrival was approaching. Olson, our section leader, labored feverishly getting the payroll in order. April 20th we received our pratique, and the 23rd we began unloading. By the 28tli, most of us were looking around for a new ship and another adventure, but those stories are yet to be told. I CLEVELAND BUNDY BRONNER Norwalk.

Even Rudi Forhan, from the horse country (Montana), who can throw a sad- dle on anything, has his difficulties with " Shorty " . " Wes " Richards helps Rudi between his greatly improved editions of " Sound Off " . The political skill of Jack Cotter has wrangled us out of many a desperate plight. Skills amongst us, however, are not limited to politics, and " Mang- ier " Medvedeff of the wrestling team remains un- defeated — and matchless. Artistic talent is not amiss and " Bailey Award " Pike brightens the scenes with a beautiful red pencil. Warren Ferry bawls at the truculent threats of " Big Suir Sullivan, and vice versa. They would probably come to blows except for the presence of mild mannered Leland Polk, the lad who gives in- structors one hard time. Sleepy time down South is accurately depicted lia if 4, ma ((a lea by Bert Myers and " Tilly " Tillotson. They even snore with a southern accent. Another stalwart representative of the Confederacy is Roy Hogan, alias " Hogan the Great " . Boy! He ' s a dilly. For sheer sheer in posture, there is laughing, dashing, " Doc " Etienne. We love you, " Doc " . A high flier in the ranks is the unpretentious person of co-pilot Bob Franklin. Newcomers to the collection are " Pete " Ped- ersen and Carl DuBose. Both wounded on the beachead of Kendrick Field — an order of the Pur- ple Pigskin would be in order. An of-fought, gallant, but losing fight on the ice by " Chuck " Thomas skids into view. Happy- go-lucky and witty, he adds a gay touch to tranquil days. " Siesta " McDowell, the dungaree dandy, (and poet), flies wildly after a section marching away . . . Then WE muster. " The Tree " is not the only prodigy from Brooklyn; i.e., the most thoroughly sensible per- son in an abjectly senseless section is Ed Rampell, Too bad about that 3.7 Ed.

Time to reminisce back over those long months at our beloved Alma Mater. So how about it. Let ' s raise the stein and drink to those indom- inable characters of the famed C-326. Those men of action and high average? Those men who, with a will found a way. The way was naturally an angle devised and developed by such fabulous men as " Scotty " , the Frisco Kid, known in better circles as Elmer Scott. Also there is Big Ed Loftsgaard, whose capacity, spiritually of course, could never quite be found. George " Worry Wart " Hill goes to press on his Linotype at exactly 0615 with never a let up until 2210. Never will we forget that boiler factory which included the Southern Gentleman and phi- losopher, " Colonel " Leo F. Terzio. With every good organization there must be a man with a fin- ancial turn, that being " Paddy " Stein, who with our brains and our money cooked up a big mess deal. What the South gave to us nobody else would have . . . Little Connie Rodriquez whose sun rises on Canal Street and sets on the Mississippi River. Dixie made another mistake when it sent " Rabbit " Hort to us via Pass Christian. What did the Pass have that San Mateo didn ' t. Well, its product was " stor " Frencli — their loss and our gain. He ' s al- ways good for five on Saturday. Our best friend and strongest critic, Ole " Pop " Gilbert had his worries. Yes, women, the downfall of men. Now with the platonic friendship class, we have " Ster- ling " Ciiuck Elflein and " Man Molecule " J. A. Wood, known to closer associates as J. A. Wood, Jr. Our unique organization does have a brain trust. The man who came to dinner, but didn ' t stay long . . . " Famine " Stubber, whose normal position is horizontal, and " Monk " Gates, who was striking for the Academy award and enjoys throwing his mates from third story windows. His trusted Lieu- tenant (jg) " Tuesday " Fox can generally be found scheming some fiendish joke with " the Monk. " Hail to the man who typifies our spirit — " Soup " Sanders, the only man that could start a section mass movement through rumor, and music, not to be confused with " Useless " , the man with many moods and weekends at the Academy.

' lll o yaffffa August 25, 1944, twenty-seven Cadet- Midshipmen congregated in the District Instruct- or ' s Office in New York. Here these salts were told they would form Section C-128 and the old saying " The first hundred years are the hardest, " might have been changed to " The first two weeks are the hardest, " because, during this time we, as new second classmen, we had to listen to the scuttle- butt concerning the difficulties one encounters here at Kings Point. At first, this section had some difficulty in keeping a section leader, but when Eugene Dalton became a " fink " this problem was settled. It was through Dalton ' s efforts that they accepted the motto, " Cooperation means Graduation. " Section C-128 also produced other leaders in the Cadet-Officers, Jack DriscoU, Sol Quinn, and Ray Botto. We know that mascot " Neptune II, " is getting good care because our boy Ernie Goble is on the job. This section would not be complete without someone from Brooklyn, so C-128 can be triply honored by having Forest Reigle, Swede Erickson, (who will be taking the big step after graduation), and " Rosie " Rosenberg, favorite student. cs EUGENE DALTON Moab, Utah Cadet Officer WILLIAM F. RAILING Baltimore. Maryland Midships Glee Club How the fellows picked one another as room- mates is amazing because in one room are Jack McArdle, Vinnie McQuade, Jack O ' Keefe, and " No. 26 " Rzeczycki. What would the boys do without the fatherly advice of our shaft expert " Dad " King? We wonder why everyone likes Bill Railing so much. Also, whether or not Frank Nagy will ever become Chief. We will never forget how Swede Turnquist — California ' s favorite son — acted when he saw his first snow fall; and when we saw Shirley McHenry ' s name on the roll, we thought maybe we had a girl in the section. Can you im- agine anyone enjoying that week of watches????? Buckeye Brown DID!!!! Don McCormick will al- ways be thankful that Chuck Giek had to stand watch one particular Sunday. It ' s a good thing that Gerry Holt was a good friend of his roommate " Shorty " Padden. During the first ten weeks " The Voice " (alias " Red " Morris) couldn ' t be dragged away from the Academy. To " Jack " Gerhardt there are no other states but Pennsylvania. To this day, our boy Forrest Reigle is trying to decide whether he would rather become a mate than an engineer. FORREST B.

We may never meet again en mass l)ut in our liearts will remain for- ever the unforgettable traits of one another anil the experiences lived topetlier at USMMA. Amonp these immortal memories are engraved the following: ' " .Muscles " Kirhy continually mis- taking his toothpaste for shaving cream with dis- astrous hut humorous results; the antics displayed by " Thebes " Devinny in endeavoring to save and grow hair; the faitiifulness of ' " Hank " Neuhausser to his beloved " Jeenie " and his agony at the delay of a letter; the ])hilosophy on life and it ' s only pleasant relief, nicotine accentuated by one Harry alker (the demerit king) ; the ability to get into and out of trouble with the greatest of ease that belongs to our " Schultz " Shields; the qualified attraction to the skirt exhibited by the whole sec- tion, only more so by ' " Stew " Unkles, whose truth- ful words were " W e ' re only one hour from Times Square but we might as well be in New Guinea. " " Pop " Kingsley ' s envied " racket " with the Color Guard and Medical Dei)artment that made legal his timely exemptions from classes and mus- ter; the suaveness of Bob Bodine with his devotion to pictures of home and the Bodine Foundry ; " Lylc Gun " Maloney ' s ability to wield the heaving line and sleep in class; the obligation that " Leetle Spike " Spychalsky has for helping instructors with excerpts from his vast knowledge; the sailing abili- ty and easy-going manner of Hans Finyen; " Jim " Foley ' s racket as member of the Regimental Staff; the mania that " Stan " Wilson reserves for his l)hotograj)hic escapades and pinochle games; the promotor instincts, vocabulary and oratorical poise of our elected most-likely-to-succeed, " Bill " Graver; Oakland California ' s prized gift to Kings Point, " The Monster " Melin, who was our idea of the perfect section leader; the " skill " of " Rube " Rub- bert with small boats, demonstrated when he hit a piling at full speed, and last but never the least is the perpetual smile of " Max " Hellermann, tem- porarily diminished by the worries he shared with " Rube " over the publication of this book. The above seventeen believe in, and hope for the ever increasing greatness and attainment of Kings Point, for a part of each of us will always remain there. ERWI.N M.

Tliis feeling resulted from the scuttle-hutt tliat drifted out to us over the hriny deep. It wasn ' t long hefore we realized that life at tiie Academy wasn ' t so jjad. At Furuseth we were stripped of our salt whicii included hair, long pants and liherty. With tiie help of Lt. Labdon, our section adviser, we were soon underway. " Unihriago " Gotten assured us that we would all make the grade, hut that was before we awoke to tiie seriousness of Academy life. Shea soon had an ample supply of blankets in stock, and " Mother " Bick had picked up a personal mop and pail. " Star- Man " MacLean held us at bay with four cycle ad- jectives while " Six " Dunnill did the Section ' s worrying about grades. " Slim Jim " Farrell and " Brownie " Wilson represented New Jersey ' s Cham- ber of Commerce, and " Muscles " Hardy upheld California. " Winged Victory " Medea kept tuned in to Wiley Hall for landing instructions — " Shreddy " Dunlap posed for breakfast food ads. We were all proud of " Snookie " Drost and " Pretty Boy " Van Dine for plugging holes and tot- ing the pigskin to give the Second Battalion the football championship.

These twenty-eight were destined to be known more as a number than as individuals — that num- ber was C-314. And so I was born a section, above average scholastically, a section of twenty-eight men, each with a chip on his shoulder and a prayer in his heart. Now on the threshold of graduation, my ranks thinned by the ten and twenty-four week exami- nations, I stand a section of nineteen men. Each one of these nineteen stands for me and I stand for one and all of them. There is Richard ' Dick " Sheridan, Tom " Stan " Walters, Russ " Measels " Robinson — all from Room 2323; " How about it " Tilley, John " Firecracker " Simko from Room 2321; Ralph " Brains " Hinds, Bill " Runt " Bos- worth Tom " T;G.

" Jones, Wayne " Frankie " Busse, Bart " The Greek " Rogers, and John " Deacon " Wittmann — occupy- ing Room 2315. On June 1, 1945, I, C-134, ceased to exist. I have accomplished what I came to Kings Point for, and I am happy now. Although I have ceased to function as an active section, I and the Academy will linger long in the memories of those nineteen who graduated as section C-134 that day. $s?v. W. W.

The progress of the section was not helped any hy an epidemic of changes in instructors, but we weathered the storm. We were blessed with the usual number of " characters " : " The man from Saipan " , otherwise known as Frank Felix, the acknowledged comedian of the section. Running Felix a close second, was " The Brain " ; this genius, H. J. Seibert, proceeded to rewrite the course of instructions in thermo- dynamics.

With only one week of practice, there was little offensive and no scoring in the first half. In the third quarter, Price, in attempting a quick kick bounced the pigskin off one of his own men. Rosenberg, hefty left guard of the Second Battalion, picked up the ball and ran it from the First ' s 20 yard line over the goal. Kleinschmidt kicked the extra point. Although the First Battalion gave their all, th ey yielded again to the overwhelming attack rendered by the Second Battalion ' s backfield with Stevenson going over the line for another six points. Kleinschmidt failed to split the uprights. The score remained 13-0, leaving the Second Battalion " up topside " . 1 - iBUKBHiimEr iii Second Game THIRD BATT. 12 SECOND BATT. 6 This upset of tlie season proved to he the Second Battalion ' s only defeat.

Stevenson, after driving down the field from his own 48. heaved the pigskin to Brockwell who scored standing up. ith Bronner doing the passing and Hatfiehl receiving, the Third Battalion evened up the score early in the third (]uarter. Continuing their aerial attack they scored their winning touclwlown when Hatfield again swe| l up a pass and took it over the goal. As with the two previous touchdowns, the try for the extra point was unsuccessful. The afternoon was sparked hv the smooth scoring conihination of Stevenson and Kleinschmidt.

KINGS POINT 33 Swarthmore KINGS POINT 16 Yale 12 KINGS POINT 26 Muhlenberg YJT lTH the successful completion of the football season it was only fitting and right that the Academy should lengthen its stride and engage in intercollegiate competition. ■ The Academy was quite fortunate to make its debut into the sporting world with a grouj) tiiat showed as much success as did the wrestling team. The men completed a sea- son that should forever stand as a monument upon which future mat teams may look upon witli [iride and reassurance. Aside from having an undefeated season and being the Metropolitan Chamj)s. they garnered a total of 233 points against their oppon- ents scanty 27. The only metropolitan team that took any points home with them was Brooklyn Polytech and even this was due to a default. The Mariners were considered by many sports authori- ties as being one of the most powerful mat teams ever assembled in the East. Strangely enough, of the ten members of the team, Metz, Rosenberg, McNamara, Bernard, and Coach Henriqucz all hail from New Jersey. Ber- nard, however, attended Lehigh Lniversity wlicn ' he held the 175 lb. Intercollegiate Championship. Bernard, along with Duven. took seven of thcii eight bouts. McNamara. Maykut. Griftiii. Ho-in- ])erg, and Bronner all boasted luidefeated m;i-(iii-. McNamara and Maykut eacli inning i ol ihcii eight bouts with falls. Besides Bernard, Rosenberg, and Maykut. none of the bo s have had previous experience in college wrestling. Much of their success can bi- attributed to tlie fine handlin:; of Coaeli Honric[U(v. National Intercollegiate Vt ' restling Champion of " 26 and " 27. ithout his stiff conditioning program and knowledge of " tricks of (lie trade " ' it is certain that the team would not have risen to the heights it lias attained. The superb condition of tlie team cannot be overstressed for more than once it wa- only this sliglit edge — condition and endurance — that led wav to ultimate victor for Kings Poim. First Match KINGS POINT 27 Unbeaten in ten consecutive matciies the favored Brooklynitcs arrived at 0 " Hara Hall with every intention of pounding sonic of the salt out of the Academy ' s untried nianglcrs. Maykut, Zek- auskas, and Griffin, captain of the team, led the Kings Pointers in their debut, pinning each of their opponents to the mat. Rosenberg, hefty BROOKLYN COLLEGE grappler from the Second Battalion, garnered three ])oints for the team ]jy virtue of a decision over Block. Metrojjolitan Champ, who, until bis match witli " Rosie " was undefeated. Coach Henriquez attributed the decisive victory not to skill or ex- perience but to the fact that the team was in su- perb physical condition. WESLEYAN 3 Second Matcli KINGS POINT 29 Moving into fast competition, estajjlished con- ferences, and seasoned teams is a tremendous un- dertaking, hardly in accordance with the " slow liealthy growth " policy of KiNCS Point.

Metz, plebe star from Furuseth, was pinned hut it took a champion. Captain Shellhase of the Ursinus team, to do it. Don Duven provided the thrill of the afternoon by pinning his opponent in 53 seconds. Seventh Match KINGS POINT 33 After taking six straight victories from their adversaries, the Stranglers knocked off another victory, trouncing this game Pennsylvania team to again top the thirty mark. Tiiere were five falls rendered; our heroes: McNamara, Maykut, Bron- ner, Duven, and Bernard. Captain Griffin and SWARTHMORE 2 Rosenberg stretched their undefeated records win- ning decisions over their opponents. Gardner, a new addition to the team, split his match with Trinkle of Swarthmore, neither gaining the ad- vantage. Eighth Match KINGS POINT 26 MUHLENBERG Finishing up their undefeated season in fine style, the Silver and Blue whitewashed this V-12 team which only the week before had defeated Lehigh to the tune of 26 to 8. The lopsided score is rather deceiving, the match being nip and tuck all the way with the only fall being rendered by plebe Bernard, throwing his opponent Schmuck in 1 minute, 22 seconds. There was some doubt prior to the evening whether Kings Point could engage so formidable an opponent as this power- ful Pennsylvania mat team considered by many as being on a par with Yale and other mighty Ivy Leaguers.

Coaclied hy Lt. (j :) E. Jucker. former All American cage star from the University of Cinci- nnatti. the hoopsters ran throuf;ii a season that left i)eliind them a field of severely druhhed op]ionents; teams that went hack home lickinj; their wounds and smarting from the trouncinps they had endur- ed. The greater part of this success story can he attrihuted to the smooth .scoring condtination of Shoneff, Nickolaus, Leahy, Clarke, and French. ShonefT led the quintette garnering a total of 129 points in ten games. Together, these five men were rcsponsihle for 419 of the seasonal total of 555. Tlie team ' s greatest difficulty was scheduling teams that even approached the al)ility of the Kings Point men. As Coacli Jucker expressed it, " As yet, we haven ' t established ourselves in colleg- iate circles as worthy ojjponents. These eastern schools arc rather reluctant to meet us on a court. They have nothing to gain and everything to lose. " Perhaps it will take years to set KiNCS Point up in the nation ' s sports columns. Vie cannot hope to accomplish in one year what it has taken other eastern schools over a century to do. However, we can he assured that as long as Kings Point is rep- resented hy teams sueii as the ' 45 haskethall team, the day is not far when every school on the eastern seahoard will consider it an honor to engage KiNGS Point on the courts, gridiron, mat, or in the ring. f First Gam » KINGS POINT 60 UNION COLLEGE 26 Kings I oint opened tlieir ]y}5 season I)y Iroimcinfi L nion witli a 60-26 decision, January 14 in O ' Hara Hall.

In fact, after the Silver and Blue had walked away with first and second places in the 440 the Eli ' s coach admitted that it was Kings Point ' s meet. Virtually all the track events, with the excc|)tion of the 220 and the half mile went to the Mariners.

Again, as in seasons previ- ous, our niittmen displayed a {jreat deal of sports- manship and talent. Their efforts were hijilily supported hy the spirited interest disphiyed hy the Kcfiinient of (]adet-Midshi|)iiieu. The competition was keen througliout the bouts. The First Battalion, however, came throu{;h to win the trophy. Three cham|)ions, namely, Towns, Cochran, and Stanzin were from tiu: ranks of the First, wiiieh amassed a total of fortv points. The Secon l and Third Battalions were tied for runner-up with twenty-five |)oints apiece. Kcpresentin;; the Second Battalion were C M Sweeny, heavy-wei{;ht champion; (] M Hommel, runner up in the welter weiiiht class; and C M Chamberlain, runner-up in the lipiu heavy-weight class. Tiie Third Battalion ring representatives were C M Gelling, middle weight champion; C M Cayo, light heavy-weight champion; and C M Price, runner-up in the heavy weight class. The Plehes gained a total of fifteen points through the efforts of C M Sposato, hantam weight cliamj ion, and C M Folker, runner u[) in the lightweight class. Up until this time, our pugilist talent has heen limited to the Academy. A( ' cording to Lieut. Twomey, our hoxing coach, the regimental ciiamps of the two previous seasons could have contended witii any hoxer of the country ' s first class collegiate teams. Coach Twomey is considered hy many sports writers as one of the finest coaches in the country; one who has distinguished himself as manager of some of the best figiuers in the game. He has proved himself at the Academy with his excellent students wlio have performed so well in the intramural i)outs. It is hoped that Lieut. Twomey will continue to turn out tiie caliber of boxer lie has been producing. It is certain that with ath- letes of this type. Kings Point could be well rep- resented in any of the finest inter-collegiate rings of the country. FIRST BATT. SECOND BATT. THIRD BATT. FOURTH CLASS 40 25 15 15 In Closer Boys.

Ji DISTANCE MAN D URI.NC KiNCS Point ' s first year of inter-collefriate traek com- petition there lias risen from within us a fine and promising array of athUtcs. Foremost in the fiehl of track was the young distance runner, Don Snyder. Don, one of eiglit eliihlren. hails from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. During his high school career, he participated in only three meets. He had never run indoors nor had he ever run any event longer than two miles. Under the tutorship of his famed coach. Lieutenant (J. G.) Gregg Rice, Snyder attracted the attention of many of the prominent eastern track enthusiasts. He placed second in both the est Point and Metropolitan relays. In the Millrose meets, Don came in sixth place. In mentioning these facts, it must not be forgotten that in all of these meets, Snyder ran in a field of fifteen runners, all of whom were experienced. The New York Athletic Club invited Don to their meet. This, in itself is an honor, for none but the country ' s best runners par- ticipate in this meet. Don placed sixth witli some of the finest runners in the East. Considering the limited training facilities available, Don ' s achievements may well be considered meritous of KiNCS Point ' s highest tributes. Had Don been able to train for one more season, it is certain that Kings Point would liave had one of the nation ' s best all-time runners. 321 aaaas iu l ltmiljMlui iim SAMUELS HALL Seamanship and Navigation ' " ' ' • 5b, ( m — -s=i sssiv;v.!U ' i j ' . v i ,1 1 Acp a n iiT TIio montlily Battalion Dances at Kings Point arc of paraniomit ini[)oitance in the iniiuls of all Cadet-Mitlsliipnien.

The sustained demands of tlie training pro- gram on the time and ener-iies of the Staff dictated the necessity of the clianfie from weekly to fort- nijihtly production. A six page anniversary edition appeared May 11, containing special mention of members of tiie Alumni and Cadet-Midsliipmen who brought the paper through its first year. Among these were Donald Kingsley, the first Editor, E. E. Tucker, W . C. Garner, E. G. Stack, RoI)ert Shirk, Richard Surges, . D. Richards, and L. W. Gudgeon. Now that V-J Day and tiie consequent peace- time organization of the Academy is being achieved, the Cadet-Midshipman newspaper will be able to maintain a long-term and well trained staff capable of handling and developing many good journalistic ideas which the i)aper, so far, has merely introduced. The paper lias, however, a style of its own. It is often quite sharp in appearance and stands out advantageously among top-notcli Academic and ser- vice papers of tlie country. From time to time, Soi:M)-Off has j)roduced many entertaining feature writers with the talent for humor and for writing news. It is likely tliat with the post-war introduc- tion of liberal arts courses at the Academy, such as English com])osition and languages, these standards will be raised. In recent months Sol ' .nd-Off has been open to the participation of Fourth Classmen, in order that upon tlieir return from sea, they may be able to rejoin the Stall witii some experience of its methods and ideals.

This imdertakini; is sustained hy the Ports or cluhs, the Poi-t of the United States Merchant Marine Academy heing the 86th to unite in this effort. The Kln ' GS Point Port comprises one of a group of 25 Junior Ports located at prominent Universities and Colleges in this country and abroad. Chartered 21 August, 1943, the Propeller Cluh was one of the first to the s cene of extra-curricular activities. Since its inception in the summer of 1943, the Club ' s mem- bership roster has expanded to such extent that h eekly meeting topped off with refreshments. now includes the names of well over 2.000 Cadet- Midshipmen. The Port was organized with the ap- proval of Captain R. R. fc lulty. Officers of the Academy who now serve in an advisorv capacitv include Captain Mahady, President; Comdr. Mc- Cready. Vice-President; Lt. Comdr. Bull. Secretary; and Lt. Philips. Treasurer. .Meetings arc held in Bowditch . uditorium on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month during the winter months and on the second and fourth Mondays during the summer months. An enjoyable combination of business and pleasure is prevalent at all meetings. !Many new and interest- ing films are shown to members, followed by a business meeting, and concluded with a round of refreshments. The policy of presenting guest speakers at meetings provides the nucleus of the Propeller Cluh idea. Notable among the speakers who have addressed the members in recent months are Ir. John E. Slater, executive vice-president of American Export Lines; Ir. J. Lewis Luckenhach, president American Bureau of Shipping; and Cap- tain Thomas A. Scott, noted salvage expert and president of Mcrritt-Chapman Scott Corp. Membership in flio Propeller Club is not limit- ed to individuals or interests. Every Cadet-Midship- man is eligible hy virtue of the fact that he is a part of the great . merican Merchant Marine.

Some of the favorite and oustanding soloists were Homer Lane, Jack Stargfeld, Harry Heyl, Rob- ert Neukum, Jerry Magruder, and Gerbardt Riedel.

Tiiis band, organized by and for Cadet-Midshipmen, furnishes the " jazz " that so many of us seldom hear. It is comprised of Cadet- Midshipmen who enjoy playing their horns during tiieir free time. Rehearsals are called whenever the members can find the time from their studies. Whenever there is a Commodore ' s Smoker you will find the Dance Band there " beating it out. " They are always on hand at the pep meeting to cheer the football team to victory. At times they relieve the regular band by playing for the Regiment at noon cliow. It is not unusual to walk out of the mess hall into Barney Square and see a piano situated there with a Cadet-Midshipmen banging away at the " 88 keys " , another one sitting on top of the j)iano tooting his horn, and niaylie a third or fourth ready at hand with their instruments. These " ses- sions " inevitably bring the entire Regiment to the scene and a song fest usually ensues. The unit is lead by Cadet-Midsliipmqn R. H. Gulcher. He is now planning to expand in the near future, and eventually alternate with the Academy band playing at the Regimental Dances. The band is made up of men who liave had experience playing in organized bands before they entered the Cadet Corps. At present, those forming the unit are Cadet-Midshipmen R. H. Gulcher, J. Gentry, H. G. Kuntz, Saxaphonc; R. H. Erikson, E. C. Manter, C. A. Morris at the trumpet; J. L. Kin- kead, R. W. Bernhardt at the tromljone: J. P. Com- lins at the drums; and W. L. Notta at the piano. Keep up the good work boys. It is really an up- lift to our morale. FIRST ROW BACK ROW CADET-MIDSHIPMAN BAND Cadet-Midshipmen MOTTA— piano, GENTRY— tenor sax, KUNTZ -alto sax.

Biggest event of the day — Pushball contest. lELD Day, 1944, saw the second class tear into a flying start — taking 20 points in the opening Tug-Of-War contest. The First Class made a clean sweep of the hundred yard dash, setting themselves up with ten points. The Second Classmen, in a spirited coniehack, retaliated — clinching the Three-Legged Sea Bag Race and accumulating another ten points. At this point things looked rather bad for the Three Stripers. However, the ranking First Class countered in a Shackle- Wrench Relay Race taking all honors and some badly needed points to boot. ithout giving their opponents time to recover from the last blow they again sent home a haymaker, knocking some of the salt out of the Second Classmen ' s hides. This was accomplished by garner- ing the first and third places in the Heaving Line Contest. Winning toss was good for 91 feet 10 inches. Perhaps the most exciting display of enthusiasm was exhibited in the ' " Knock ' Em Down, Tie ' Em Up, Drag ' Em Off " battle which was declared ' ' Ao Contest ' ' by the Referees. Due to the inability of both sides to retain their prisoners, once captured, no accurate count could be taken, so the contest was stricken from the day ' s card. W ith the Second Classmen still in the lead, both sides took to Kendrick Field for the last deciding event of the day — the infamous Pushball Contest. " In Unity There is Strength " — In the First Class there is organization, So-o-o-o-o-o-o-o, need more be said? The sixteen points offered for this event went entirely to the powerful First Class — clinching the Annual Field Day of Kings Point, 43-30. 336 UkdiiiktflHMilHil l H 100 yard dash.

The distinguished guests met the Superinten- dent, the heads of the educational departments, the Regimental Staff of Cadet Officers, the Regi- ment, and many individual Cadet-Midshipmen. They toured the grounds with personal escorts, missing no part of the Academy and its complex functions. They observed the Cadet-Midshipmen in classes, in their rooms, on the grounds, on the drill field, and in the mess hall. As their visit was rapid- ly culminating, they became more impressed with the training facilities, pleased with the progress made in the Academy ' s infancy, and cognizant of its future possibilities. Members of the Congressional Board visiting the Academy were Senator Alexander iley of isconsin. Representatives Ellsworth Brewer Buck of New York, James Hardin Peterson of Florida. James Demengeaux of Louisiana, Alvin F. eichel of Oliio, Richard J. elcli of California. Henry Martin Jackson of Washington, and Eugene J, Keogii of New York. The visitors of tiie Second Congressional Board departed, well pleased with our Alma Mater and hopeful for its position as a basic factor in tlie L . S. Merchant Marine of the future.

At the present rate of construction we shall have a p ost-war fleet of more than 50 million deadweight tons, a considerable part of which will be comprised of (irst- class modern ships. Ships like those illustrated, cargo carriers and tankers of various types, form the backbone o f a merchant fleet — second to none — which will carry American trade to the ports of the world. These ships have two im- portant commercial advantages — speed and operating economy — that assure their competitive position in post-war maritime trade. A very substantial proportion of our new Merchant Marine is powered with boilers designed and built by Combustion Engineering. These high- efficiency C-E Boilers assure lower operating costs. Their simple, rugged design means low maintenance, an- other important factor in achieving operating economy. And for depend- ability C-E Marine Boilers have proved themselves under the abnor- mal stress of war-time service where dependable performance is of vital importance. A new day is in the ofling for America ' s maritime commerce. And to it Combustion Engineering brings its war-broadened facilities and experi- ence with marine steam power to help keep the ensign of the American Mer- chant Marine (lying on the seven seas. 5fiV C-2 TYPE CARGO C E PIODUCTS INCLBOE III TTPES OF STEIM GENERITIN6.

The device, designed by Westinghouse in collaboration with Coast Guard engineers, in- cludes a small control stand in the pilot house and a main control board in the engine room. It is designed to regulate the flow of energy from the steam turbine to the generator for control of speed, and through a series of switches, controls the forward and reverse direction of the motor. Provision has been made for manual operation of the unit in the event of damage to the electrical controls. The unit brings the complex electric motor equipment of the ship under the direct com- mand of the man at the pilot house control. The propulsion control gives the pilot a tre- mendous advantage in maneuvering a ship, assuring him quick and correct response to his control movements. WESTINGHOUSE STEAM DIVISION LESTER, PA.

For U. S.-flag shipping is our pro- tection. Our own land might be a battle-field today if we had no American-flag merchant fleets to supply our far-cruising Navy, or to carry our troops and weapons overseas. And in peacetime, only all-Ameri- can shipping can give us control of our vital foreign trade . . . assuring us the thousands of things we must import, safeguarding the billions of dollars of farm, mine and factor) ' products we sell abroad. American Export Lines operate a large share of the new U. S. shipping. We have been able to contribute unique experience with routes in the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the Indian Ocean. And when our own modern ships can return to their normal time-table schedules, what you want to buy and sell abroad will de- termine our cargoes and ports of call.

With Victory comes the opportunity for our nation to be one of the world ' s strong- est maritime powers. An adequate, efficient merchant fleet, as a matter of national pol- icy, is highly desirable for economic rea- sons—more jobs afloat and ashore— more production in factory and on farm — in mine and shipyard, mill and office — con- tinued national prosperity. So let us re- member this time that a strong merchant marine is one of our surest safeguards of enduring peace as well as a powerful serv- ant in time of war. We of Babcock Wilcox are confident of the great contributions such a fleet can and will make to new peacetime standards of American commerce.

S BHH iflHIIHHIHHHHI Letter from the Marine Department of the Alcoa Steamship Company Fo Wo E BENJAMIN A. FISHER T. HOSE who have looked through the completed log books of a merchant ship will have noticed the capitals " F. W. E. " used by the deck and engineroom officers to denote the termi- nation of a voyage. These letters record the last signal from the bridge to the engineroom, and signify " Finished With Engines. " The voyage is over and the vessel secure in safe harbor and the throbbing heart of the ship, her propulsion machinery, is stilled. She is at rest. There is one awful exception to this rule, when F. W. E. forms part of the dreaded command " Abandon Ship, " given by the Commander when through disaster the ship is close to her end. Until F. W. E. is rung on the telegraph from the bridge, the black gang still stands by. A few days ago the War Shipping Administration delivered to this company a new vessel, the " BENJAMIN A. FISHER, " named in honor of the Chief Engineer of the S. S. " ALCOA GUIDE, " sunk by enemy action in the opening days of the war. The writer many years ago commanded the " ALCOA GUIDE " and proudly likes to recall he was also a shipmate of Fisher and knew him well. This is mentioned in an attempt to convey our feeling of pride in being honored with the duty of operating and husbanding the S. S. " BENJAMIN A. FISHER. " Throughout the coming years, whenever her name is spoken or a husbandry chore performed, we of the Marine Department of the Alcoa Steamship Company are bound to have in our thoughts the memory of the man she commemorates and his devotion to duty and astounding heroism. The S. S. " ALCOA GUIDE, " unarmed and proceeding alone on an Atlantic voyage, was attacked by gun fire from an enemy submarine. Shell after shell pierced her hull and, although her Master made an heroic but unsuccessful attempt to ram the U-boat, it was soon evident that the " ALCOA GUIDE " was doomed. She was settling fast. Mr. Fisher, her Chief Engineer, was in his cabin when firing commenced and immediately rushed to his beloved engineroom to be met by men of the black gang staggering up from below, choking and gasping from ammonia fumes released when the ship ' s refrigerating machinery was wrecked by a shell. With his coat over his head he fought his way down to the bottom of the engineroom to the operating platform in readiness to carry out instructions for engine movements and to await the final signal he knew must soon come — F. W. E. He could not know that the Commander, Captain Samuel Cobb, who would flash that signal had been mortally wounded. He could not know that even then the crew on orders were lowering away the lifeboats. He could not know that a search party had reported back that no one could be alive in the in- ferno that was the engineroom. Not until the influx of water in the engineroom had put out boiler fires and he was driven up on deck did he leave his post at the throttle. At this moment he was joined by two seamen who had been trapped in the after crew quarters and had just managed to free themselves. One liferaft was left and the three men got it over- board and jumped after it just as the " ALCOA GUIDE " went under forever. We who go down to the sea in ships have a slight idea of what it means to be adrift on the Atlantic on an open liferaft, supplemented in this case by the story of the lone survivor on the raft picked up by a passing vessel 35 days later. From him we learned something of Fisher ' s physical condition when he dragged himself aboard the raft, mute testimony indeed of his ordeal in the engineroom amid escaping steam and fuel oil from wrecked pipe lines and tanks. Is it then to be wondered that after ten days on the raft, life ' s voyage for Benjamin A. Fisher was over? His great heart was stilled and he was at rest. For him the Commander of Commanders had flashed— F. W. E. Hail S. S. " BENJAMIN A. FISHER!! " You carry the name of a very gallant gentleman, a tried and true officer of the American Merchant Marine, and may the example set by your namesake inspire us all that we might meet a stern test as he did, leaving us unafraid and prepared for the last entry in the log-F.

When the war began we had 11,000,000 dead- weight tons of merchant shipping. Today with over 50,000,000 tons, the United States stands first as a maritime power. Such fantastic tonnage growth alone would have been meaningless had there not been a well-estab- lished American shipping industry to expand with this giant fleet and run it, under the supervision of the War Shipping Administration. We had that industry — and during the past thirty- six months the steamship companies of the United States have not only contributed their own vessels to the wartime shipping pool, but have also taken on the tremendous job of operating the hundreds of new Libertys, C-l ' s, C-2 ' s, C-3 ' s, Victorys and many other types, as fast as they slid down the ways. We are proud of AGWI ' s service in this great " task force " of merchant ships which has helped bring victory sooner. But more, we alue the experience gathered in wartime, for it has prepared us to carry — by sea or by air — our share of tomorrow ' s new commerce along the routes pioneered by AGWI over a cen- tury ago.

" All 100 have G-E turbine-electric drive — gives speed for war, earning power in peace THE M ' . L. K. Emmet is one of more than 150 tankers built at the Swan Island shipyard — all 6000 hp. all propelled with turbine-electric drive. These big. fast turbine-electric ships save 25 to 40 per cent of time in transit compar- ed with prewar ships, a real asset in rush- ing fuel oil to battle zones. In peacetime, this reduction in time will mean reducing the cost of transporting fuel. General Electric is furnishing the propul- sion equipment not only for the 150 Swan Island shops aggregating 900,000 hp. In the three years of war, we have built a total of 2,170,000 hp of turbine-electric drive for tankers. Some of these ships have joined the fleet as Xavy oilers.
