S. Maritime Commission, was authorized in order to assist the President in the execution of the law just as the Navy Department was created to aid him in the administration of the naval policies of the nation. Today the organization is essentially the same with President Truman at the head and the U. S. Maritime Commission, a five man board Of which Vice Admiral W. W. Smith, USN (Ret ' d), is chairman, acting directly under him. This agency is charged with the administration of the U. S. Mer- chant Marine and of training officers and men to man the ships, the latter duty coming under the di- rection of Rear Admiral Telfair Knight, USMS, as Commandant of the U. S. Maritime Service with Rear Admiral R. R. McNulty, USMS, as Supervisor of the U. S. Merchant Marine Cadet Corps and Superintendent of its Academy at Kings Point. 27 ADMIRAL W. W. SMITH, USN (Ret.)

Upon them lies the re- JJ sponsibility of keeping the engines going and of keeping the ship olive. If they fail in their task the ship becomes o helpless thing, a mass of iron and steel at the mercy of the elements. If they know their jobs, she is a thing of beauty, a powerful and animated structure battling the seas to the far corners of the earth. The unwritten motto of the engineering department of Kings Point is " To produce Marine Engineers Second to None " . It trains the Cadet-Mid- shipmen with a full understanding and realization of the problems which will befall them as Marine Engineers. Under the careful direction and super- vision of Commander Lauren S. McCready, and his assistant, Lt. CommandeH Sandberg, the department is staffed by officers who oxq for the most part former Marine Engineers and in every cose men selected for their knowledge and experience in the field of Marine Engineering and " its many phases. Thus, the Engineering Cadet-Midshipman has the double advantage of his own knowledge as to the problems he will encounter garnered of his own tour of duty at sea and the far reaching experience of his instructors. The Department of Engineering is subdivided into a number of divi- sions, each of which handles a certain port of the Cadet-Midshipman ' s training. These are Steam, Diesel, Electricity, Ship Construction, Labora- tories, and Machine Shop. Each division has its own individual course to teach, but all the subjects are presented in such a way that they blend together and the relationship of one to the other is never lost from sight or forgotten. In this manner a most complete and thorough coverage of the necessary material is obtained. The Marine Engineer of today in order to be successful must b e a jack of all trades and a master of a good percentage of them. He must know a great variety of trades and skills. He is on electrician, a machinist, o plumber, and an engineer. He must know his steam and diesel engines, his evaporators and his boilers. The principles of refrigeration, lubrication £ i] B J 11 s nnu fi mod thermodynamics must be common knowledge to him. Besides oil this, %e must be a foreman, a bookkeeper and a general manager. Unless he possesses all these attributes he cannot call himself a Marine Engineer. To provide the Cadet-Midshipmen with this wide variety of subjects, a system of classroom lectures and laboratory experiments is used, the two paralleling and complimenting each other. In the classroom the embryo engineer learns the theory. He learns the principles upon which a " machine works and then the many different applications of the principles that he will encounter. He learns every detail of the equipment for which he wUI later be responsible. Every problem that can arise is brought up, discussed, and a solution decided upon. Thus the ground work is established. He then precedes to the laboratory and puts his knowledge to work by actually oper- bting and conducting tests with the samy uipment that he will encounter IQtsea. Wi , , ,. . 8 The department has succeeded in oflBining in its course the delicate ' balance of the theoretical and practical knowledge that is an absolute necessity to the Marine Engineer. Realizing that one without the otheris fegrmful and mokes poor engineers they have combined the two m just the Hht proportions, so that the Cadet-Midshipman not only knows what to do 0 situation, but why he is doing it. The Laboratories are individually and collectively the finest of their type in the United States, if not the world. They have been carefully designed and provided with the most typical and modern marine equipment, i he Cadet-Midshipman follows a course of planned experiments which insures that he will receive the utmost benefit for his time and effort. Closely associated with the laboratories is the machine shop and its auxiliaries; the pipe shop, welding shop and foundry. Here the Cadet-Mid- shipman is further molded towards his final form of a Marine Engineer. In the classroom and laboratory he was taught the proper way to handle the equipment and the best methods to give them long life and efficient opera- ■ ffll tion. In this department he learns how to fix them should onything happen. Once again he has at his disposal the finest of equipment. Here the prac- tical ospect of his training is stressed, he learns to use his hands as well as his brain. In the classroom the Cadet-Midshipman has many aids from which to gather knowledge other than the instructor ' s talks. The lectures are often supplemented with a movie from the Cadet Corps ' collection of engineer- ing films. The wonderful educational medium of the motion picture is not neglected. Besides these, a great deal of smaller equipment has been mounted on stands which enables them to be rolled into the classrooms for detailed inspection. Accurate models of large equipment ore inspected in the classroom before working on the real thing in the laboratories. At all times during his training the Cadet-Midshipman Engineer has impressed upon him the importance of efficient plant operation. He is drilled and schooled in the best methods of operation so that the equipment and machinery entrusted to him will receive the best of care. He is taught to repair them when they break down, but more important how to keep them from breaking down. Progressive maintenance is his creed, efficiency and economy become his watch words. It is ever kept before him that the best engineer is the one who can get the most out of his plant at the least pos- sible cost. Thus the Engineering Department of Kings Point are the trainers of the " Black Gong " . Hard working, capable, sincerely devoted to the cause of producing better engineers, they hove labored hard in the post and will continue to do so in the future. For the records show the fruits of their en- deavors. Hardly a ship of our great Merchant Fleet soils today without a Kings Point graduate in the engine room. i COMMANDER L. S. McCREADY, USMS Head of Department " ■| HE Department of Engineer J under the able leadership of mander L. S. McCreody and his font, Lt. Comdr. C. W. Sandberg. These two officers were the guiding figures in the department throughout the strenu- ous days of the war-time accelerated course and hove been very instrumental in the development of the four ye«M marine engineering course which will be offered to future Cadet-Midshipmen. Both Commander McCready, a gradu- ate of New York University, and Lt. Comdr. Sandberg, a graduate of the New York State Maritime Academy, sailed as engineers aboard tankers dur- ing their careers at sea. Serving as heads of the divisions of electrical engi- neering, diesel engineering, engineering laboratories, and steam engineering are Lt. Comdr. T. L. Carroll, a graduate of New York University, Lt.

The tendency in recent years has been toward the use of high pressure and high tem- perature steam to increase the efficiency of the plants. These increases permit smaller though more complicated machinery. The Steam Engineering course is designed to in- clude not only the older " up-and-down " en- gines but the modern turbines as well. The theory of steam is taught in classrooms by competent and experienced instructors. The Cadet-Midshipmen also attend classes in the steam laboratory where they learn the opera- tion and maintenance of the equipment under instructors who have been to sea and know the solutions to the many troubles that can occur in a marine plant. In thermodynamics, the Cadet-Midshipmen learn what happens when steam is expanded through an engine. This is something that cannot be learned through experience and must be taught in a classroom. A knowledge of " thermo " is essential to an engineer in order to maintain an efficient plant. In olden days the engineer knew how to run a plant but did not know what was happening when he lighted a burner. The Cadet-Midshi p- men of Kings Point are taught exactly what f happens when fuel oil or coal is burned, and how to control the combustion for changes in demands of power. I In the study of boilers the Cadet-Midship- -man learns the principle of steam generation. The high pressures and increased output de- manded of modern boilers requires that they be of heavy construction although they are preci- . I as s FTThe Cadet-Midshipmar is ht all the ' ' ins- and-outs " of bo i%og If Mll H ; Modern steam shfps ar u with steam turbine propulsion, but the steam course at Kings Point does not leave out the re- ciprocating engines. All Liberty ships have these engines, there- fore, the Cadet - Midshipman must have complete knowledge of their operation. Next on the list of the Cadet- Midshipman ' s studies is the steam turbine, the main work- horse of today ' s Merchant Ma- rine. The working parts that make a turbine go cannot be readily seen in normal plant op- eration, but nevertheless, the future engineer officers must know how they work. Lost but not least on the list of studies are the auxiliaries, without which a power plant would be helpless. There are hun- dreds of different types of auxili- ary machines aboard ship with which the Cadet-Midshipman must be familiar. At the completion of his steam course, a graduate will know the operation and maintenance of modern marine steam equipment and be able to go aboard any steamship and operate its power plant properly and efficiently. Cadet-Midshipmen examine the construction of turbine bearings. 45 WBBWBiBWBPBlWill lllllflLJiA ' iAlllvMWIWllB l MliiMM r|l|JKIN(j tftS past ttn years and more especially — throughout the war years, our Merchant Marine has been undergoing a minor revolution in ship pro- pulsion. The mighty turbines and the ancient " recips " hc| a o MfflTipetitor, the internal combustion en- gir« M ecifically the Diesel. This newest of engines nosrnade rapid strides in the field due to its high efficiency and corresponding low fuel consump- tion. Tjftjs today a g od percentage of our ships are Diesel propelled. It is for tltle-K son thai the best marine engineers, the modern marine engi- neers, cann r lg assified as a " steam man " or a " diesel man " . In order to be truly skilled in his profession, he must be a combination of both. He must be a " steam man and a diesel man " . The Diesel Division educates and instructs the Engine Cadet-Midship- man in the theory and operation of internal combustion engines. The course is specifically designed and laid out to thoroughly ground the em- bryo engineer in the fundamentals and principles of the engine, while at the same time keeping in mind that he is basically an operating engineer. Understanding the construc- tion ot on Ex-cello tuei pump is greatly simplified by meons of a sectional model. 46 ■:v. i The first eight weeks of the course ore spent in a study of mechanics. In tliis part of the course the study of forces is stressed. Following this, a plan of study is pursued that traces the construction of the engine from the base plates to the cylinder heads. All phases of the subject are explored and learned. The course covers all types of engines and all of the different systems of fuel injection utilized on them. The greatest amount of time is spent on a detailed study of the m various types of fuel pumps and injectors which form the most complex part of the engine. At all times, throughout the course, the practice of progressive maintenance is expounded. For in these two words lay the key to success or failure in the operation of any internal combustion engine. The diesel must be cored for dili- gently if good results are desired. The division teaches its Cadet-Midshipmen how to run the engines, but even more important how to keep them running. Any discourse on the Diesel Divi- sion here at Kings Point would be in- complete without mentioning the lab- oratory. It is here that the knowledge gathered in the classroom is put to practice. The engines found here are of the various types in use today on our ships. A full measure of the credit due to the Diesel Division for the fine engi- neers they produce must be given to the laboratory and the instruction and experience received there. The fuel system is the most importont part of any diesel engine. t NY DAY a visitor on the Academy grounds may ■ Ipr strange gibberish coming from groups of seet mgly normal Cadet-Midshipmen marching in order, but all repeating quite clearly in a low tone, " I equals E over R, I equals E over R . . . " . The ex- planation for this strange behavior can be easily explained. Ohm ' s electrical law and its variations, the basis of all electrical studies, is the first thing a Cadet-Midshipman must learn before proceeding in his electrical studies. On modern ships the trend has been more and more toward electrical operation of all auxiliaries, until at present most ships would be helpless with- out their electrical supply. The Cadet-Midshipman realizes this when he goes aboard his first ship as a third classman. With a feeling of mystery toward such equipment, he looks at the huge marine genera- tors with no slight amount of respect, reverence, curi- osity, and fear of being grounded anywhere near the generating platforms. That feeling is not peculiar to him alone. Electricity is the only force man uses which is not perceivable through any of the senses, since only the work done by it can be measured. For this reason the Cadet-Midshipman starts his train- ing with Ohm ' s law, a piece of fur, and a glass rod, and ends it by operating the Academy ' s 400 KW generator. Every possible difficulty aboard ship is studied and duplicated for the Cadet-Midshipman to trace down, using equipment identical to that found at sea. Determining the etficiency ot a motor is all important to the engineer. mm FsssmBBBam A Cadet-Midshipman for a shorted coil. I ti « :3 ami nmn r " jN engineering officer of the merchant marine is JJ not a " Desk-Engineer " . He can do anything his men can do and more. In the laboratory courses Cadet-Midshipmen work on machinery, learning to repair, operate, and install it. They learn to operate evaporators, and turbines in the steam lab, to adjust reciprocating engine valve gears and replace tubes in the model boiler. Air injection or solid injection engine operation is taught in the diesel lab. In elec- trical laboratory, repairing electric motors and gen- erators as well as practice in their proper operation is learned. At sea there is no such thing as not knowing what to do in case of a breakdown of some piece of equipment. There is no substituting, or calling in someone from the factory where the equip- ment was built. It is the combining of the Academy ' s technical courses closely allied with the laboratory instruction that assures today ' s Cadet-Midshipman that tomor- row he will be one of the best Merchant Marine officers in the world. 50 :-- " A centrifical feed pump in the Steam Engineering Loboratory proves inter- esting to both Cadet-Midshipmen and instructor.

He not only repairs the machinery that fails in his department, but often times is called upon to repair the ma- chinery of other departments. In Machine Shop a Cadet-Midshipman learns to use the lathe, shaper, and hand tools correctly in order to do precision work. A short course in electric welding is included as well as piping practices, foundry, and forge work. " Every-day " work does not call for ski in use of these tools, but a knowledge of their use must be had by any engineer in order to cope with an emergency or routine repairs. We poured the metol ourselves in the casting 52 ' ' J 1) ' ? ijiii£i ' Ann wimjumv d; tu BiJi]£i]iJ_ f ' jNE of thslprim equisites ot a Marine - - Enginee is a complete knowledge on ' thproughNoad rstandihg of the Rul _ Regulations regarding propulsion macH ery and its auxiliaries as laid down by : he o BureoLLC Mgnnejnspection and Nav a tion, a biranch of the Coast Guard, and they must be common knowledge to all candidates for a license. Cadet-MrasK!; men learn the specifications as to materials and design of all the machinery that they will encounter as engineers. They also learn the all important procedure for annual inspection, how to prepare the equipment in their charge for this inspection and what tests the machinery and boilers will be placed under to determine their fitness for duty. He learns also the vital fire rules which must be known al- most verbatim before sit- ting for one ' s license. Safety might well be called the keynote of this course. The rules that are studied are the lessons of time, and often bitter experience, which have been developed to obtain the highest possible degree of safety in the Engine room. The Cadet-Midshipman becomes impressed with the necessity of constant c dherence to the ruleS he learns. From pnotographs he sees what has happened in the past when engineers were neglect- ful. The regulations regarding fusible plugs, safety valves and feed systems are carefully covered, together with many les- sons of actually determining through mathematics the various sizes of studs and plates a boiler requires and the stresses which act upon the boiler. 1|! ' aflBlH - b l HHH A fatigue-tester is used to determine the strength of materials used in the construction of ships. 55 taasagiSBammnamBaa W ' The study of a ship ' s lines drowings proves both interesting and difficult. ' I HE past few .ebi-s IRave brought forth J many changes in the methods of building ships. New designs and new processes, in- cluding such changes as prefabrication and the more extensive use of welding, have pre- sented many new problems to the shipbuild- ing industry. The Ship Construction course at Kings Point is designed to acquaint the future ship ' s officer with the various factors taken into consideration in the building of the ships he sails. He studies the stresses to which a ship is subjected in a seaway and how these stresses ore cared for in the con- struction of vessel. The building of a ship from the time the keel is laid until the com- plicated structure slides down the ways, is carefully traced. The latest methods of welding are studied, as well as a comprehen- sive review of the older method of riveting. The Cadet-Midshipmen learn not only how a ship is constructed, but why it is con- structed in that way. The reasons why a ship has the lines it has ore studied, as well as the problems involed in finding its sta- bility. Included within the course are the studies of propeller design, steering engine con- struction, and telemotor systems. When the course is completed, the Cadet-Midshipman is thoroughly grounded in the principles of ship construction. SIJJP I IFE at sea requires an officer of the Merchant - Marine to be able to express himself in both words and pictures. He must explain intricate parts to ex- pert craftsmen, using the proper views and labeling, and also using procedure in accordance with that of standardized engineering practice. If these parts are made incorrectly at shore installations, they can be made over. Not so at sea. At most, the ship ' s officer in is port for a few days. When machinery is to be repaired it is his duty to insure a fine degree of accuracy in the work. While at sea, he will need to explain by pictures to his men what he wants done, because it is his responsibility to keep the million dollars worth of equipment in his charge in dependable working order. Another aspect of the Engineering Drawing course is the study and ultimate understanding of a ship ' s blueprints. An Engine room is an intense ungle of pipes, valves, rrtd ' fliifeT cls ' ond traps. Often times the solution to a new problem cannot be found by the age old method of " tracing the lines " and it is then that the ship ' s officer must turn to his blue- prints. Here he will find the answer he seeks, and if he is thoroughly grounded in this study he has no difficulty in locating where the trouble lies. In foreign ports where languages often fail, he can recall the Chinese proverb, " One picture is worth ten thousand words " . Here his prospective or high symetric may save the day, where it would take a week and several foreign dictionaries to get his point over. In the Engineering Drawing course at Kings Point, the future officers of the Merchant Marine are furnished with the best-aquipment and practical working marine parts to draw, and under the tute- lage of men who have themselves overcome these difficulties, they learn how to ' mast-er them.

He is at all times, and particularly when on duty, responsible for the safety of the ship and its personnel. He must take all precautions to protect not only the vessel itself but also its crew, utilizing as little time and expense as possible. When engaged in loading or discharging cargo, he must see that it is also done in a proficient and economic fashion. He must assure himself that all cargo is inspected prior to loading, and he must discover any dangerous or previ ously damaged cargo for which the company might be held liable. When the vessel is under way he must be ever alert for any hazards lying in his path. In addition to his regular duties he must possess on extensive knowl edge of any practical work or repairs which may be required of his men so that when necessary he may intelligently direct or supervise them or, if necessary in an emergency, aid them or carry out the task himself. From this brief description of his job it is evident that he must be firmly grounded in all tricks of the trade, both old and new. It is for this reason that his training must be very extensive, not only in practical work, but in the theory and working rules behind it. Very few Cadet-Midshipmen had any connection with the sea, its ships, or any of its affiliated industries, before entering the Cadet Corps. It therefore follows that instruction can, and must, begin from the ground up. ■■ In the Cadet Schools at Son Mateo and Pass Christian the future officer receives the fundamental facts necessary to successfully begin his period of sea training, as well as cruises on training vessels attached to those schools niiurjfiiiL Sfijpnfi£ Embarking on his tour of study at sea, the Cadet-Midshipman realizes, for perhaps the first time, the wide scope of the United States Merchant Morine Cadet Corps. For now he has the world for a workshop, and his only boundaries are the seven seas. During this part of his training, he is further advanced in the intricacies of his profession. He spends a period of one year ., , Jjt on various Merchant vessels, touching at many of the far flung ports of the ■■iS globe, not only in times of peace, but also during war in the battle and in- vasion sections. While on shipboard, the Cadet-Midshipman (Deck) while under the supervision of the Chief Officer, participates in practical tasks, and also gets navigational instruction during periods of watch standing. Through completion of his Third Class course, he becomes familiar with all portions of the ship, operation of its gear, the purpose of the various Hydrographic Office charts and publications, and the methods and instruments used in the various navigational problems. He also receives an introduction to marine engineering by means of a project containing monographs on that division, and through the comple- tion of sketches and written examinations connected thereto. The newer field of engineering has not only increased the speed and safety of vessels, but has aided in facilitating such things as loading and unloading cargo, operating various gear necessary in docking and also many of the navigat- ing devices. The Department of Nautical Science of Kings Point provides future of- ficers with the latest data and developments in all phases of the Maritime Industry. Upon graduation they not only receive their Third Mate ' s license from the Coast Guard, but also additional certificates showing their pro- ficiency in visual signalling, radio procedure, and the gyro compass end its auxiliaries. vamtsassfixmBBmsBmsaaaaEgawgawmmsaiBa Cadet-Midshipmen also pursue such subjects as foreign lan- guages, higher mathematics, history, and English, marine engi- neering, maritime law, marine insurance, and human relations so that they will also be familiar with all phases of the shipping industry. Other professional courses include navigation and seaman- ship, cargo handling, chart room, first aid, ship construction, boat drill, engineering drawing, meteorology, and Naval Science. During their Second and First Class years at Kings Point, Cadet-Midshipmen ' s sea time is kept fresh in their minds by train- ing cruises on one or more of the training vessels attached to the Academy. In this way Cadet-Midshipmen ore never out of con- tact with actual shipping or sailing throughout their stay here at Kings Point. Through the combination of these many modern facilities for instruction at Kings Point, the Deck Cadet-Midshipman has, upon graduation, a firm foundation in all phases of his field, and he is completely prepared for the job ahead of him, that of Third Officer in the United States Merchant Marine, for he is a gradu- ate of Kings Point, the finest and most modern Merchant Marine Academy in the world. 60 COMMANDER B. M. DODSON, USMS HEAD OF DEPARTMENT rlURING the past year the Depart _ U of Nautical Science has had several changes of command due to the shifting of officers at the Academy. Although each head of the department spent rela- tively little time as its commander, to- gether, they led it splendidly through the transition period between the war- time accelerated program and the four year course which is now offered to Cadet-Midshipmen aspiring to be deck officers. The officers who held this senior position during the past year are Commander A. F. Olivet, a graduate of the New York State Maritime Acad- emy, Lt, Comdr. G. C. Hassoll (Acting Head), Commander R. M. Sheaf, a graduate of the New York State Mari- time Academy, Commander R. Eisen- berg, a graduate of the Pennsylvania Nautical School, and Commander B. M.

DiHIHIH] L l]i]Vifii] " J " JDJ] IF any one attribute of a Deck Officer could be singled out as the most important he possesses, undoubtedly it would be his ability to navigate his ship. When a ship is miles from nowhere with only the surging sea about it, there are no road signs to steer by, no marked out highways stretching to the desti- nation, but only miles of trackless ocean. It is then that the Ship ' s Officer must call upon his navigational ability and, through the medium of the instruments of his trade, bring the vessel safely to port. What qualities are necessary to become o Ship ' s Officer? It takes a person possessed of common sense, good judgment, an ambitious mind, and a thorough understanding of math- ematics. With this as a background he must set about to learn not only the complexities of this earth of ours, but also the intricacies of the celestial bodies, dead reckoning, and the astronomical triangle. He must also become thoroughly acquainted with the compass and the tides. He then takes all the theoretical knowledge he possesses, combines it with his natural abilities, and puts it to practical ap- plication, by the use of his sextant, pelorus, and other navigational aids in plotting the CQ se of his ship over the trade lanes of the 1 navigation course at Kings Point, which is given to our future Merchant Marine Deck Officers, is designed to produce good, sound naviga tors. The various navigational fe hods that man has used in the past to v 62 - M- guide the course of nis ships ore studied, as well q m e, navigational instrumel developmenf of our— pp methods of navigation ar6 acquired, with the idresi much clearer idea ij why we use a certain method of determining position ir b feJFer- ence to another. By studyingi t only our modern finely ec structed and precise nauticot in- struments, but also their devel- opment, starting with their crude and primitive counterparts, from which our present day instru- ments came and then tracing their gradual growth both in form and in accuracy, the Deck Cadet-Midshipmen become thor- oughly acquainted with both the construction and function of the " tools of their trade " , with which they will come in daily contact when aboard ship. The Cadet- Midshipmen are taught to determine a ship ' s posi- tion by means of celestial obser- vations, and to read and under- stand charts. They become ac- quainted with nautical astron- omy, azimuths, plane sailing, middle latitude sailing, and star sights. Navigational aids, buoy- age systems, and the operation and maintenance of naviga- tional instruments become sec- ond nature. Modern methods of Navigation utilizing war devel- oped Radar and Loran are now included in the course. SSn vsnxccrsnRWBmaa KssHii nv Deck Codcf-Midshipmen learn the important points of a ship ' s telemotor. vT EAMANSHIP may be defined in many ways. One of the most frequent descriptions of it is simply " common sense. " In practical application, it may be construed as any work or practices necessary for the maintenance or repairs of any part of the ship. It is evident that these definitions may be considered ; synonomous, for the simplest and most successful way to complete a task is to think it out first, to use " common sense. " Cadet-Midshipmen are first indoctrinated into this field as Fourth Class- men for one year at the Cadet Schools. There they receive a foundation not only in practical, but also theoretical seamanship. They learn to tie useful knots, rig bos ' n ' s chairs and stages, care for wire and manila rope, dock ships, and care for and operate deck machinery. During the third class year at sea Cadet-Midshipmen put their knowl- edge to work in actual situations aboard merchant ships. Here, also, they may further their basic education by taking note of unfamiliar jobs, and by observing, learning, and participating in as much deck work as they can. Upon their return to Kings Point, the " know-how " is kept fresh in their minds by frequent classes in practical seamanship, supplemented by lec- ! construction of wire e is important knowledge Deck Cadet-Midshipmen. 64 tures in the theoretical side of the subject. The useful training acquirej about Samuels Hall bridges many varied branches. In the sail loft the Midshipmen learn the ways of sewing canvas; in the rigging loft they splice wire, to rig blocks and tackles, and handle rope; around the " bull iring " they increase their knot tying ability; and on the seaward side of Samuels, they have a cargo hatch, complete with king posts, electric and steam winches, and dummy cargo. Their extensive equipment also includes two mechanical steering trainers, and several training vessels used for one day cruises for actual applica- tion of their laboratory knowledge. They also acquaint themselves with the proper methods of mixing paints, of mooring ships, and of caring for the large number of items they will be placed in charge of in their future positions. From this description of the seamanship division, it should be visible, even to a layman, that deck Cadet-Midshipmen have all available facilities necessary to prepare them for their future career at their fingertips. They have received the finest train- ing possible. In the Cadet Schools, on the seven seas, and here at Kings Point they have been constantly drilled in all the fundamentals, both theoretical and practical. They know the " how " and the " why for " , not simply because they have been told but because they have worked at it and found out for them- selves. Thus imbued with the principles and possessed of the " common sense " they are ready to do their jobs. Seaman- ship is their business. important ' I HE handling J that have beetji ever since mori " n d stowage of cargo are subjects considered vital to ship ' s officers - __ __ 3s gone down to the sea in ships " and carriOT ff Trade over the ocean routes of the world. Expert seomarYship and navigation would mean very little without a proper knowledge of how to handle the ship ' s cargo properly, and stow it in a safe manner. It is because of this, that such an emphasis is placed upon the teaching of cargo in the course of study that is followed by the Deck Cadet- Midshipmen. Besides learning the proper methods of handling cargo, the Cadet-Midshipmen also study the effects of the loading process upon the stability of the ship. This change in stability, which occurs with every piece of cargo that is loaded, is very important to the safety of the ship, for if it is not given adequate attention, the ship may not be in a seaworthy con- dition. Along with safety, the factor of efficiency and economy must be considered. An officer who thor- oughly understands cargo stowage can be counted upon to place a given amount of cargo into a much smaller volume than might at first seem possible. This will prove an asset in future years, ashore and afloat, when the steamship companies are hiring cargo officers — men who con load a ship, keeping her trimmed and stable. Studies such as this will place a Kings Pointer in a higher bracket in the shipping industry. For these many reasons, cargo stowage is taught, and in no small measure. As a result of the thor- oughness of this teaching. Kings Point graduates are rapidly attaining a prominence in the Marine Industry. 66 Codet-Midshipmen learn safe and economical storoge of bagged goods. Preparation of cargo plans is one of the " essentials " for profitable ship operation.

In the Ship Construc- tion course the future Deck Officer studies how ships are built and how they act under certain conditions. He learns the principles of stability and the effects of free surface and load conditions upon it. Thus equipped he is capable of han- dling his vessel under the various condi- tions to which it will be subjected. Class- room study is supplemented by field trips to foundries, docks and ship yards, where the Cadet -Midshipmen see for them- selves the application of the theories they study. Models best demonstro.e loss of stability due to free surface. ' I HIS subject seems to give the i t-Midshipmen J ( Deck) more trouble than any of the other subjects which they ore required to study.

This manual is the most stringent safety code for ships of any of the maritime nations of the world. It is rigidly enforced by Coast Guard inspec- tions. All candidates for third mate ' s licenses must become thoroughly acquainted with all of these articles. In conjunction with this course the Cadet-Midshipmen are also instructed in the proper operation and use of all fire fighting and emergency equip- ment. Deck Cadet-Midshipmen learn by practical operation the ship- board fire-detection and smothering system. 69 fgtKKSKnaBaSBmBSWKnm ngaumvuumxuMvuwmtm ' [ HIS course-TUiibii lS lit JH siud Lof the tools J with which seamen work and their specific uses aboard ship, the construction of wire and manila rope and their many uses, the rigging of ship ' s booms and the actual use of these booms, the splicing of wire and manila rope and the actual learning of the many knots which every good seaman must master.

The First Aid, Ship Sanitation and Preventive Medicine course at Kings Point is de- signed to teach the Cadet-Midship- men what to do until the doctor arrives. The future maritime officers are taught to care for all types of in- juries from an insect bite to a broken back, and many types of illnesses. Many lives at sea have been saved as a result of the prompt action of a first-aider.

The fine collection of books of the sea and the general collection are under supervision of Lt. L. Bejarano, Chief Librarian and his assist- ant, Lt. (j.g.) Binnington. Its rapid develop- ment to the fine organization that it is today, is largely due to the efforts and devotion of these men and their able staff. They have established the lib rary as one of the favorite spots frequented by Cadet-Mid- shipmen. As a sanctity from the general noise, announcements, and bugle calls of the bar- racks, Cadet-Midshipmen have been blessed with the existence of the library. This depart- ment, like all the others, ever expanding, with new volumes flowing in, is outgrowing its home in Bowditch Hall. To meet this situa- tion, and due to a desire and need to make the library an even more inclusive place in accordance with the new, more rounded acad- emy course, plans have been drawn up and it is hoped the near future will find the library willingly offering its aid to the Cadet-Midship- men in a fine new building of its own. 75 gtSBfSfUBmmwsvwBnKWBMwaavBssmxaKanmxMmm r l good ship ' s officer must not only be a good navi- JJ gator or o good engineer, but he must also have an ample knowledge of business, Admiralty Law and trade.

" Dinny " , the confirmed bachelor of the section, will be married within the coming year. If you listen to " our boy " , you ' ll be reedy to stake your life on backing up a bachelor verdict. The section has learned to take " Baldy ' s " opinion in one ear and out the other, as a certain " Naomi " (the Belle of Flushing) has captured his heart. CLAREMONT DEAN ENGEBRETSON 146 Mabel, Minnesota Scholastic Award . . . Cloremont " Whimpy " Engebretson left the farmlands of Minnesota to Join the Codet Corps, and we must admit that he has shown the city slickers of Section 146 a thing or two. He has achieved one of the two Scholastic Awards in the section, specializing in electricity, where his rule is supreme. We predict a brilliant future for this personable young gent as a second " Cyclops " in Rural School 1 7, Minnesota. ROGERS WALTON ERRICKSON 146 Birmingham, Michigan Erudition without pedantry, assurance without superiority — these were Rogers ' earmarks. Consistently able to grasp things for which many of us reached vainly, he stored these gains unostentotiously in his private storehouses. His academic record stands as evidence of this. To observe this Rogers was to wonder; to associate with him was to ap- preciate unexpectedness; to know him thoroughly was doggone difficult. ROBERT IRVIN GAUBY 146 Dayton, Ohio Cadet Officer . . . The man in Section 146 who can keep the straightest face and make the nastiest remarks is " Bob " — alios " Harry Highschool " — Gauby. Hiding behind a false front of colored pencils, ink, and an innocent expression, " Bob " has managed to conduct two or three " Thrilling Romance " escapades simultaneously, right under our noses. His notebooks are the envy of all who have " hotboxed " his sketches. RAYMOND EDGAR GREEN, JR. 146 Clearwater, Florida Cadet Officer . . . From Clearwater, Florida, to Pass Chris- tian to Kings Point, " Ray " Green has become renowned as a Casanova and " Suthun Gentleman " . Aside from his perusals of the fairer sex, " Ray " found time to be a Bat- talion Commander in Basic School, and sub-company Commander of the First Company at the Academy. In addition, he has participated in most of the intramural sports and maintained a high scholastic overage. ' ■ ttittltiJ im s £ ' • •mm ROBERT EDWARD GRIFFITH 146 Hayword, California Bob was never one to worry about the next lesson until ' long ' bout class time. Of all the things he did well, the best was just sitting. Give him credit, by the way, that he did horp ' ad nauseum ' upon the virtues of California. Perhaps he was a bit carefree at leisure but he enjoyed life and saw the responsibilities, as well as the privileges, of friendship. GEORGE ROBERT HUGHES 146 Vienna, Virginia Fifth Company Commander — Rowing — Softball . . . Bob came to Kings Point from San Mateo, and won a warm spot in the hearts of his section motes. He made a particularly fine record, both scholastically ond in his role as Fifth Company Commander. Always cheerful, stable, loyal. Bob seemed to make friends effortlessly, and always had time to umpire a Softball game or lend a hand in the preparations for a Battalion Dance. CARL BENORD KARFS 146 Belleville, Illinois Propeller Club. . . " Cookie " Korfs is an original and well-liked member of the " Flying Fourteen " (those out of the starting 30 who survived in Section 1 46) . Naturally reticent, his personality has been a constant and enjoyable discovery by his section mates, and behind this reserve we hove discovered a good mind, sense of humor, and a " way with the ladies " . We wish him Good Luck. HUGH FRANCIS LINDEN, JR. 146 Brooklyn, New York The section never quite fulfilled its promise of either attacking Hugh with on electric razor, or turning him over to the circus sideshow as the best living example of a man who will never need to use hair grower. Extremely energetic, a good athlete and student, Hugh has played a part in all phases of a Cadet-Midshipman career. We predict great success for him as a Merchant Officer. JOHN MURRAY McNALLY 146 Brownsville, Texas " Honest John " McNolly undoubtedly was one who got the most out of the course here, as well as being extremely popular with the section. " Mock " participated in sports ond was always generous. He loaned his " Blue Chariot " to his section mates for weekend dates when he didn ' t need it himself. WILLIAM NISBET 146 Tuckahoe, New York An incorrigible practical joker and humorist. Bill teamed up with Bob Griffith to provide some of the most hilarious entertainment we had the good fortune to encounter. A mean man with a basketball and on the diamond, " Hose Nose " led a well rounded life at Kings Point. He could never quite convince the Diesel Instructor that he was not responsible for most of the skylarking of the section. KARFS LINDEN McNALLY 1 • • - U ft 1 fit ' 1 ANDREW JOSEPH THOMPSON 146 Easthampton, New York El Morroco, Stork Club, and Monkey Bar have never seemed to phase the blonde " Don Juan " of Section 146, better known as " Andy " or " Toinbuckle " Thompson. His superficial air of urbanity has never quite deceived his friends from the fact that " Andy " hails from Easthampton, on the desolate shore of Long Island. Plebe and Advanced courses at Kings Point have not subdued the exuberant nature, nor his poetic phraseology. CHARLES ALEXANDER ALCORN 151 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Rifle Company . . . " Red " Alcorn is The original " Eager Beaver " of the Cadet Corps. He achieved the nickname of " Green Hornet " when rising from the ranks for the third or fourth time. He became the most eager MPO that ever hit a mustered platoon in the Fourth Company. But ogain, he was set back to the ranks, a better man for this last try. GEORGE STEPHEN ARNESON 151 St. Paul, Minnesota Academic Star — Propeller Club — Glee Club — First Battalion Adjutant . . . " Arney " was the leading scholastic man of the section, as well as the top ranking Cadet Officer. It was noticed, too, that he was the top athlete of the dental call squad. " Bunk pass " Arneson ' s repertoire of medical ailments astounded everyone. WALLACE KYLE BENNER 151 Lakewood, Ohio Glee Club . . . Our friend, prior to coming here, had among his high ambitions that of becoming a first-class doctor; however, a war combined with an inherent lust for the sea changed his mind. A good personality and a fine voice often made us wonder why his former aspirations didn ' t also include crooning as o possible vocation. RALPH PETER DELMAS, Jr. 151 Paseogoula, Mississippi His transition from the red hills of Mississippi to the north shore of Long Island was the realization of Ralph ' s dreams. At first he was slightly disappointed to know he had to study so hard and so often to be a Merchant Marine officer. However, these few acodemic worries did not prevent his participation in athletics. Truly a Southern Gentleman, he is a man whom the Merchant Marine can well be proud. HAROLD JOSEPH DOYLE 151 Oak Park, Illinois Windjammers . . . " Hoi ' s " slight frome was the sounding- box of the loudest " hep " ever given to a left-footed sec- tion on the right foot. He was certainly in all his glory at Mr. Spurr ' s " Chowder and Marching " classes. In all seri- ousness, though, " Bones ' " enlightened management of the section during those lost crucial weeks at the Acad- emy greatly exemplified his ability as a leader, and was thoroughly appreciated by the whole section. 95 ts:nm ] " f5f - MORGAN MICHAEL FOTTRELL 151 Los Altos, Californio " Frenchy " is a great lover of " overnights " . He seems to hove on uncanny and superb knowledge of the whys and wherefores of the female species, and also professes to possess a professional golfing ability.

LeROY WILLIAM GUDGEON 151 Oak Pork, Illinois Sound-Off, Editor in Chief . . . " Roy " was well known as captain of the extra-duty squad, but he still found sufficient time to efficiently manage the editing of " Sound-Off " . Although this swell school paper had to be discontinued while under his direction, he deserves a whole lot of credit. We are oil looking forward to the day when we shall read his editorials in some large daily paper. BRYCE MANNING 151 Portland, Oregon Propeller Club — Windjammers . . . " Big Moose " is one of those rare characters who can get the most out of life simply by taking it nice and easy. He does almost everythmg with o marked indifference; however, superb results are usually significant of his endeavors. Very conservative, but extremely earnest and efficient in all his undertakings, Bryce is certain to attain success. FREDERICK OLIVERI KEMP 151 Elm City, North Carolina Propeller Club — Rifle Company . . . " F. O. " is the good-looking southern gentleman from ole N. C. You frequently see him carrying a club over his shoulder — not to get even with the instructors, but merely to use keeping the women away from him.

NICHOLAS JOSEPH LARCHEY 151 Newkirk, Oklahoma Propeller Club — Rifle Company — Camera Club — Host Committee — Cadet Officer . . .

Jerry was always engaged in some phase of the extra-curricular program, and is per- haps best known for the active part he played on the newspaper, Sound-Off. His brilliant ideas combined with many hours of hard work were indispensable in making it successful. Whenever a helping-hand was needed we could always depend on Jerry. JOHN STEPHEN MORGAN 151 North Bergen, New Jersey Tin Fish Club — Good old " Irish " . . . The class wouldn ' t be the same without him. He provides plenty of good laughs, and is the life of any party. He has that often heard of, but seldom seen, trouble, keeping the girls away. His good looks, and pleasant manners really slay them. Wherever he goes throughout the world, John will always bring happiness and good times to his companions. ROGER FRED PEARSON 151 Seattle, Washington Propeller Club . . . " Ole Faithful Freddie " is one of those steady men upon whom everyone seems to rely in trying times. He is liked by all who know him, and is occasionally called " high pockets " for obvious reasons. His hearty laugh does wonders for any worn down spirit that might be within range, because he is the criterion of happiness. ROBERT W. RUMBEL 151 Berkeley, California Glee Club — Cadet Officer . . . " Horry " , alias " Sleepy Charlie " , is the kind of a fellow that will take advantage of every minute of sleep.

He is very happy when he has a sheet of music in his hand, especially when. appearing before some young ladies ' organization. KENNETH GEORGE SMITH 151 St. Louis, Missouri Though doubtfully blessed with a quick temper, Kenny was generous to a fault and he never nursed a grudge Rivaled only by on encyclopedia as a source of information, he was ever ready to argue a point, but averse to quibbling over trivialities. His efficient and thorough-going manner qualify him as the Merchant Officer, and his ever present hu- mor still further increases his value as a shipmate. STEVE TROKNYA 151 Clay Center, Ohio This hardy mariner was a boisterous but extremely like- able chop. His inevitable keen sense of humor did much towards making him a host of friends, because Steve was always able to take a joke no matter how far it was carried. He had a great deal of the stuff of which offic- ers are made, and should end up near the top. ttfxnm rf5 97 RICHARD COMER ViCKERS, Jr. Mobile, Alabama Sorta quiet, shy, and good natured, the easy-going Gulf Coaster was a hord-hitting boy who wouldn ' t take dirt from anyone. Perhaps no longer the classic Southern gen ' lemun, he ' s officer material through and through, with a deep-rooted love for the Merchant Marine.

WILLIAM FRANKLIN BOWEN, Jr. 152 Wilmington, North Carolina Camera Club ... A true son of the South, you couldn ' t get within five feet of him without hearing what you missed in " God ' s Country " with its marvelous girls and wild nights. His favorite occupation on his liberties (he never missed one) was drumming on the nearest piano in some quiet out-of-the-way place like the Four Star. ROBERT SAMUEL BRIN 152 Minneapolis, Minnesota Propeller Club — Camera Club — Transportation Committee . . . He ' s big and handsome, full of fun, and given to moods.

REMO CHARLEY CUNIBERTI 152 San Francisco, California From the fogs of San Francisco Boy, Chuck brought his talents and ' savoir faire ' to the Academy.

When he returns to Frisco, he will take with him a wealth of friendship to add to those friends already there. SHERMAN JOSEPH DONOVAN, Jr. 152 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania From his nonchalant, composed expression, and his easy manner of walk, we know thot worry never got the upper hand for this young " son of Ben Franklin.

JOHN MARIO GODINA 152 Wellsburg, West Virginia Propeller Club — Polaris — Midships — Camera Club . . . John went places fast. Anyone who thought otherwise should hove tried to keep up with him on his way to the " Big City " on Saturdays.

His endeavors proved to be very helpful wherever he worked. WILLIAM BARBER GRANT 152 Tacoma, Washington Scholastic Award — Propeller Club — Windjammers — Camera Club . . . " Ulysses " was liked by everyone he smiled at, and he smiled at everyone. The state of Washington lost a very valuable man when Bill decided on the sea as a career, because since he has been with us he has proven himself a man of extraordinary versatility. Not only has he been out- standing In his academic achievements; he has represented himself well athletically. ROBERT ALLEN HANSEN 152 Milwaukee, Wisconsin First Battalion Staff — Propeller Club — Rostrum . . . The " Good Humor Man " would be a fitting name for Al.

EDWIN KLEINMAN 152 Forest Hills, New York When things are tough and classes are hard, there is nothing more natural than to join the magic circle around Ed ' s frictionless slip-stick. Numberless classmates will always be grateful to him for keeping them from the A-Boord. When his wit, patience and sociability are taken into account, it ' s no wonder that the postman grumbles about toting his fan mail. 99 imiaMMBMwsr ALAN RICHARD LARSON San Francisco, California Propeller Club — Camera Club . . . Years ago the coll of the seo spanned a hundred miles of fertile farmland and was heard and heeded by this versatile son of the land of sunshine and flowers.

ROBERT McNALLY 152 Brooklyn, New York Propeller Club — Sound-Off, Feature Editor — Camera Club . . . Suddenly you hear the strong and vibrant strains of a popular melody.

ARNOLD GLADDING SEAMANS 152 Whitman, Massachusetts Propeller Club ... If you ore looking for a man for the situatoin — whether it be dating your sister or calming you down when the regimentation has you — if you search for sincerity of deviltry, if you place friendship above the more tangible rewards of life, then Arnie is highly recommended. If you enjoy seeing your girl wolfed while you watch, you can have him. HENRY JOSEPH SYLVESTRI 152 Ossining, New York Propeller Club . . . " Sully " liked to be first He was first up in the morning, first out to formations (never missed first call for anything), and first into the sack at night. A stack of boodle, red hot music, a pack of cards, a few fogs, and he was in paradise. In this native New Yorker, Kings Point graduated a first rate officer. ROBERT LEE TAYLOR 152 Reading, Pennsylvania Camera Club . . . Bob is a man the Merchant Marine will be proud to have as an officer. He con assimilate more from a text book in fifteen minutes than the overage Cadet-Midshipman can in an hour.

His characteristic pose is tilted far back In a chair blowing countless smoke rings at the overhead. WILLIAM BERTON THISTLE 152 Sistersville, West Virginia Rifle Company . . . Coming to the Academy from the mountains of West Virginia, Bert quickly swung into the Kings Point routine.

JOHN FREDERICK BURGER 157 Stoten Island, New York Scholastic Award — Wrestling — Cadet Officer . . . " Lobe " , as our hero is affectionately known, derived his name from the globular ears he acquired in his many maulings on the mat.

EVAN EARL CLINGMAN 157 Madison, Wisconsin First Battalion Staff . . . The notorious " Cruiser " got his name from the beat he patrolled in the Mess Hall and partly from his bicycling tactics in the boxing ring. These didn ' t prove too advantageous in the ring, but he put them to better use when he went out for the cross-country team. He was constantly a threot to any titles held by Cadet-Midshipmen in regards to sleeping in class. HERBERT BERTRAM COOPER, JR. 157 Portland, Oregon Tin Fish Club, Warhead . . . Cooper is a pioneer of this great country, hailing from the great unexplored ter- ritory of Oregon. His early training in the wilderness is undoubtedly the reason for his ability to withstand the rigor and hardships of being torpedoed and spending 19 doys in a lifeboat.

He was one of the lads, especially when precessmg at a full 7,000 R.P.M. LAWRENCE ARTHUR RENEHAN 157 Darien, Connecticut Windjammers, Commodore . . . " Skull " was an overage student definitely out for a good time. He didn ' t have the most extra duty in the regiment, but was well known in that regard.

He was likeable to all his friends and he had no enemies. GILBERTSON wm. WILLIAM THOMAS SODE 157 San Bruno, California Propeller Club — Windjammers . . . " Slew Foot ' s " main interests were " Wine, Women, and Song " with a little relaxation on the side. There ore rumors that he spent most of his liberty with Sue.

CHARLES ROBERT STIMSON 157 Detroit, Michigan Varsity Sailing Team ... A Cast-off from a senior second battalion section, " Spider " was welcomed into the 157 fold shortly offer mid-term.

KENNETH COULTER TORRENS 157 Larchmont, New York Scholastic Award — Windjammers, Treasurer — Wrestling — Captain Tomb Trophy — Cadet Officer . . .

RICHARD HUMPHREY TURNER 157 Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan Windjammers — Varsity Soiling — Varsity Baseball . . . Mr. Turner was whole-heartedly ond sincerely interested in the Corps and its mission; in short he was militory.

ALAN W3LS0N ZELLER 157 Plandome, Long Island, New York Scholastic Award — Windjammers . . . " Sausage, " as he was known to all, was the only Cadet-Midshipman in the his- tory of the Academy who was allowed to use a high chair in the mess hall.

Bill came to the Academy by way of Pass Christian and the M. V. Lightning. His exhaustive explana- tions into all phases of " juice " more than once saved some of us deficient men.

JAMES DUFFIELD COLLINS 158 Indianapolis, Indiana Sound-Off — Camera Club — Glee Club . . . Although usually a livewire, " Duffy " was frequently short circuited, and often grounded, during his year at the Academy. His spark was rarely generated before the second cup of coffee at breakfast, and he rarely developed full power until the fourth cup in the canteen after class. A former G. M. engineer, Duffy may some day wander bock to this profession. RALPH EUGENE CRUMP 158 Long Beach, California Propeller Club — Host Committee — Boxing, Manager . . . An appreciative consumer of music. Crump displays his poten- tial musical abilities by supplying the excellent harmony present in our own " Shaft Alley Choir " .

It has been our great pleasure to know him and look forward to his future friendship. WILEY BEDDOO FORD 158 Potomac Mills, Virginia Propeller Club — Camera Club . . . This toll, handsome " Redhead " hailed from Virginia, and had the walk, talk, and technique that mode him a killer with the fairer sex. Red got more colls from women in one night than his section mates got in week. He was one of the smartest men in the section and also q member of the Teetotaler ' s Club. HENRY ARTHUR GODDARD 158 New York, New York Propeller Club . . . From o war-torn tanker came Henry Goddord to resume where he left off at Kings Point. " Hank " , as we called him, was the section ' s spark plug and there was a witty answer to oil problems at the tip of his tongue. Liberty coll was his favorite number — it would take him about three minutes to get dressed and be ready to go. LANGRALL LYNWOOD GERALD GRIFFITH 158 Charleston, South Carolina Propeller Club — Host Committee — Varsity Football . . . Griffs has the distinction of being next to the oldest Cadet- Midshipman at the Academy. His favorite song is Dixie, which he can sing only when a boy from Brooklyn tells him the words.

Ed ' s big ambition is the sea. Talk to him and you will wind up discussing different ports of the world. As a Cadet-Midshipman he saw and was in plenty of action.

CLARKE LANGRALL 158 Baltimore, Maryland Glee Club — Second Company Commander . . . For every situation and subject he had the " know how " . Clarke never over-exerted himself, and as a Company Commander he led his men into the lime-light. His company always reflected his neatness, precision, and spirit. It con be only with reluctance that we surrender Clarke to his profession as an engineer and to his favorite pursuit — the opposite sex. RUSSELL EUGENE LATSHAW 158 Memphis, Tennessee Plebe Company Commander — Propeller Club . . . Memphis has produced one of the most likeable characters to graduate from Kings Point. " Carrot-topped, " friendly, scholarly Russ Lotshaw bossed the Plebes over in Furuseth Barracks for sev- eral months. Russ will probably be best remembered for his quick-witted, dry sense of humor that left many a friendly adversary without room for reply. Be it as company commander, student, wit, or friend. Red did a fine job. DAVID DONALD MOKRIS 158 Cleveland, Ohio Propeller Club — Varsity Football . . . Should a passer-by hear a beautiful choral arrangement floating out the windows of Palmer Hall it could either be " Mo " leading the " Shaft Alley Choir " or our hero arguing with Crump over the identity of a piece of music. " Mo " was always ready for a good time, a week-end with the boys at the Clinton, or a blind date. RAYMOND EMANUEL PAGGI 158 Wappingers Falls, New York Propeller Club . . .

He possesses the knack of adapting himself to any con- dition; likes music, books, gooey sundaes; and is far from being a woman hater. It has been a pleasure to know this man of sage and desert. Those who serve with him will find him a splendid shipmate as well as a capable officer. CLYDE VERNON REESE, JR. 158 Sidon, Mississippi Propeller Club, President — Escort Committee — Sound-Off . . . C. V. might be referred to as the section politician. Directing his energies along this line he rose to prominence as President of the Propeller Club, became a member of the Sound-Off staff, beat the A-board and, most noteworthy, stood only six inspections and two reviews during the year. Later years, no doubt, will find C. V. in some southern cotton mill impressing the local gentry with his inside dope. CHARLES IGNATIUS RITCHIE, JR. 158 Cleveland Heights, Ohio Propeller Club . . . " Chuck " Ritchie is a toll, well-liked lad who has the reputation of getting along equally well with section mates and members of the fairer sex. You will always find him on the spot when something hilarious is about to happen, such as launching Cadet Officers in Eldridge Pool. We are sure that he will have a brilliant career. ISIDORE SAGER 158 Brooklyn, New York Propeller Club . . . We think Saga spent his sea time on a sailing vessel in the North Atlantic, but he claims it was a Liberty ship. He took a lively interest in oil that occurred at the Academy and was often to be found brousing through the library or just returning from some extra swimming period. He should go for in his life as an engineer. ALBERT WILLIAM SIELOFF 158 Chicago, Illinois Propeller Club — Wind|0mmers . . . We will always remember Al for his spirited optimism and bulldog determination. When the going got tough he was always there with his quick smile and a tenacity to see the job through.

ROBERT MAURICE SOHUS 158 San Gabriel, California Propeller Club — Camera Club — Wrestling . . . Bob, as is the cose with most Californions, is continually expounding upon the wonders of his state.

GEORGE WILLIAM STEWART 158 Chattanooga, Tennessee Propeller Club — Rifle Company . . . Many an evening when all was still and quiet, we would suddenly hear a scuffling of feet, banging of chairs, followed by various loud phrases.

This would be one of his many escapades which always ended in a laugh for everyone, including George, although usually the joke was on him. RAY RAWDON WOOD 158 Birmingham, Alabama Cadet Officer — Propeller Club . . . The world has known a number of arbitrary, stubborn, dogmatic people, but no one enjoys being contrary more thon Roy Wood.

With his winning personality and good mind, he ' ll advance rapidly. WILLIAM EDWIN BAKER 163 Keystone Heights, Florida Third Company Commander ... As determined as his square jaw indicates, " Bake " will best be remembered for his ability to follow through with most any project to which he put his mind.

CARL EDMUND BEHR, JR. 163 Bloomington, Illinois First Battalion Dance Committee . . . Kings Point will never graduate o better Third Mate, or a finer fellow than " Fungus " . We don ' t know how the name " Fungus " started. Perhaps it was because of that ripple of fuzz on his upper lip. Quiet, unassuming, generous to a fault, capable, he served as our section leader for a while, and he served us well. 107 HSRgnsuuLWiuuvjfiuviftuiatHaiunyBBniBi ' • " :tmt46 RUEBEN MYRUM BOXRUD 163 Louisburg, Minnesota Windjammers — Propeller Club . . .

He smoked, almost continuously, pipes of all sizes and shapes. WILLIAM MILROY GORMAN 163 St. Louis, Missouri Propeller Club ... In the weeks we lived with " Willy " , not once did we see him ruffled or hurried; for those of us who were continually running to musters, tieing our ties and forgetting our hots, that was a real accomplishment.

GEORGE EDWARD LEDFORD 163 Dayton, Ohio Sailing Races ... If is not at all hard to imagine " Bunny " in fifty years — o man successful in his chosen profession and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

HAROLD JAMES MIEDEMA 163 Grand Rapids, Michigan Propeller Club — Sailing Team — Softball . . . Harold can best be distinguished by a quality that many admire, but can ' t acquire: the ability to let nothing worry him.

If he had his way, he ' d take the engines out of every ship and put soils on them. HENRY JOHN NAWOJ 170 Tilton, New Hampshire Winning Crew, Rowing Team — Scholastic Award . . . Soon after his arrival at Kings Point, " Honk " earned his " Star " . He was always willing and able to help his section mates with their difficult problems. His athletic abilities were demon- strated when he pulled on oor with the winning crew on Alumni Day. With his friendliness and good common sense, " Hank " is assured his place among Kings Point graduates. MAKEPEACE ! fi? HOLLIS SHERIDAN PAIGE 170 Shaker Heights, Ohio " Holly " was one of the boys that enjoyed a good tinne and usually had one. He had his car parked nearby and most of his section mates were on hand to help load it " full and down " . The times had on " V-J " night and other holidays will not be soon forgotten! Other things to be remembered are the " sayings " he brought, which the section adopted. HARRY PRICE PARKS 170 Waycross, Georgia Besides being a comedian, Harry participated in all the section athletics with plenty of spirit and good sportsmanship. He got along with everyone and would always oblige anyone who needed assistance. His hard work and earnest, con- scientious studying put him in the upper bracket of the class. The Cadet Corps will be proud of Harry, and we all wish him clear sailing in the roughest of seas. DONN FRANK PENNELL Midships, Circulation Department — First 170 Berkeley, California (Tiiuai ii[j3, in_unjinjii i cv-;ui iMnri 1 1 — mil uuiiuiiun i uiit c »wurnmittee . . . Donn ' s interest in going to sea was of " pre- war " foundation, because he spent his childhood where he could see the ships coming in and going out the Golden Gate. Here, at the Academy, he showed interest in all activities. In the athletic field, it was intramural baseball; for non- physical pastimes, it was " Midships " and the First Battalion Dance Committee. PAUL RICHARD POTTER 170 Baltimore, Maryland Winning Crew, Rowing Team — Propeller Club . . . " Dutch " held a top place in sports events, having been a member of the Company Baseball and Basketball squad, besides being an oarsman of the champion Rowing Team. Taking part in the above has not altered his scholastic standing, which remained in the upper half of the class. " Dutch " will always be remembered as a sincere friend. JOHN JASON STEVENS, JR. 170 Kingsport, Tennessee Fourth Company Commander — Winning Crew, Rowing Team . . . During advanced training " Steve " was a leader, fighting for improvement of conditions around the base. Later he decided to become a Cadet Officer. Starting out as an MPO, he was soon a leading Cadet Officer. Rising astromomically, we saw him a Company Commander in record time. Ambitious and hardworking, " Steve " should earn a successful career in the maritime industry. WALTER CARL WALKER 170 Minneapolis, Minnesota Track . . . " Walk " is noted for his humorous remarks and imitations of his fellow classmates. Besides being a clown, he was an outstanding athlete in the section, participot- ing in all events in O ' Hora Hall. His good sportsmanship earned his woy to a " star " on the Track Team. In the academic field " Walk " remained high in the section all the way through. nmi im 119 mnnnnBivmnniiMuujkiJAiLqvKui iviiifl t££:ttM PHINEAS ARA WHEAT 170 Sturgis, Michigan Rifel Company, Company Commander . . . " Phin ' s " pipes exude odors more abominable then the stench of on un- pumped bilge. " Buck " has, however, some admirable qualities. His school spirit is among the highest at the Academy. He takes great pride in his work and works hard at anything that interested him. This is shown by the fact that he became the Company Commander of the Rifle Company. RALPH DANNER WOLEBEN 170 Fort Worth, Texas Tennis — Wrestling Team, Manager . . . Ralph ' s main hobbies are tennis and women. He was a member of the Kings Point Championship Tennis Team of 1945. He is very easy to get along with and is, in his own words, " a nice boy with Q nice personality. " Rolph takes great pride in his work and as an engineer he will undoubtedly be a credit to our Merchant Marine. ROBERT LYNN WRIGHT 170 Worthington, Ohio Winning Crew, Rowing Team — Dance Committee ... A pipe which hod puffed its way from Ohio to California, then around the South Pocific, found its way finally to the Academy. Here it puffed diligently through an endless number of text books, smoked during hours of extra duty, puffed contentedly to restful music, and burned patiently during periods of misunderstanding. How and where will it puff now? RICHARD ASBURY BURKE 175 Newport, Delaware Baseball — Midships, Circulation Staff ... " Geronimo. " Wham! Crash! With that shout our versatile section mate, Dick Burke, is off again. Not content with being a student of the highest calibre, Dick turns his talents to many diversified fields. In addition to carrying on on old family tradition of being a seaman, during which time he survived the terrible " Murmansk run " , Dick is a full-fledged paratrooper with three night jumps to his credit. CHARLES VIRGIL DAMON, JR. 175 Kenmore, New York Third Company Commander — Sound-Off News Reporter . . . " Chuck " Damon, the " Mad Monk, " left a trail in Buffalo, Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, and undoubtedly, in many more ports unknown. At Kings Point, he capably commanded the Third Company, but often caused great consternation in the mess hall. " Chuck " is a phlegmatic, peaceful soul, until ruffled. Undeniably talented, future success is indubitable. HOWARD EUGENE DAVENPORT 175 Baltimore, Maryland Wrestling Team . . . " Dave ' s " love of work and easy-going ways hod him doing more than his share of those little un- pleasant tasks in lifeboat and practical seamanship classes. His love for the sea was surpassed only by his love of a pleasant weekend in New York. He was a member of the wrestling team and taught his room-mate many holds that were practiced on members of the section. DAVENPORT ROBERT EMMETT DWYER 175 Faribault, Minnesota " Hey, fellows, 1 think I have this down pretty good. " Long will that sound echo and re-echo up and down the corridors. The new Cadet-Midshipmen probably won ' t recognize it, but to us of 175, it will always bring bock memories of Bobby Dwyer, the genius of the section. The helping hand which he so willingly extended to the " goats " that lagged at the end will also be remembered. EDWARD JOSEPH HEINE 175 Spring Lake, New Jersey Ed Heine, that fiery lad of Dutch and Irish descent, has Track — Scholastic Award — Midships, Circulation Manager held various interests this year at Kings Point; first track, then weekend liberty, then Midships, and finally a " certain one " in Chestnut Hill. In his spare time he found time to win a Scholastic Star, participate intramurally in baseball and basketball, and generally battle Cadet Officers. DONALD BAILEY HORTON 175 New York City, New York Windjammers. . . A long association with " Salty " , including the hawse pipes of Sheepshead Bay, the Basic School at Pass Christian, the terrific seven months at sea, and many happy hours, whiled away bock at the Academy, hove undoubtedly proved the sea is his first love. An effervescent sense of humor and a terrific personality are two of many assets which should go far in helping Don realize his " pipe dreams " . DAVID HERBERT KING 175 Wyomissing, Pennsylvania Midships, Business Manager . . . Dave came to us from Wyomissing and, even though life in the Cadet Corps was radi- cally different from that to which he had been accustomed, he adjusted himself very readily. He treated academics rather lightly, but worked eagerly on MIDSHIPS and gave considerable time to intramural sports. Conscientious and unassuming in manner, his leadership and administrative qualities made him an ideal business manager. JOSEPH OLLINGER, JR. 175 Mobile, Alabama Boxing . . . " Little Joe " is one of those steady, easy-going fellows who mokes life bearable. While at the Academy, he took port in more than his share of athletics, being a member of the Second Company Softball Team and the 145 pounder on the Varsity Boxing Team. He showed rare form when he defeated the Maryland 145 pounder at Kings Point. HENRY JOSEPH RINGS 175 Canton, Mississippi Henry, another one of those fellows from the good old Southland, who blessed 175 by his presence is, os are most of his brethren, on amiable likeable fellow. He was one of the few who believed that every cloud has a silver lining and looked to the future with a happy smile. This lively lad caused many a chuckle by his quick wit and dry humor. r;i-f -r: xnm] 175 121 ■RiRBiianionaviiDBiinnnn tm] 4J5 - REMBERT ALEXANDER ROGERS, JR. 175 Albemarle, North Carolina Varsity Wrestling . . . From North Carolina, we hail " Buck Rogers " , 175 pounder on the wrestling team. " Roge " is a genial Southerner who is equally adept on the gridiron, in the clossroom, or gliding across some ballroom in the latest terpsichorean style. He ' s a lad who does things for " kicks " . SHEWMAKER HARREL LESLIE SHEWMAKER 175 Beech Grove, Arkansas Scholastic Award . . . Petite, vivacious, loquacious — that ' s the description of a gentleman more often referred to as " Shoo " . Wherever you may find an argumentative gathering " Shoo " will usually appear, shrieking at the top of his voice. " The Arkansas Vet " will retain a soft spot in his heart for the Academy and especially for Cadet Officers. He is one of the few who could accomplish much by studying little. " Shoo " has recently found a certain interest in Jersey City. It is rumored that he manages to take a three hour lunch period off in order to meet her. 175 Baker, Oregon JAY ARTHUR SMALL, JR. " Well, I don ' t know how! " That could only be Oregon ' s fair-haired boy, Joy Small. Jay intends to go " down to sea " after graduation. He is well known in the section for his bowling talents. Among his greatest achievements was the thorough beating he always gave " Buck " and " Bobby " every Saturday night at the alleys. This quiet, unassuming lad will definitely be an excellent officer and a true friend. JOHN ALLEN SMITH 175 Chicago, Illinois First Company Commander — Football, Center . . . " Hey there Pea-Shooter, got a cigarette " ? Nothing else is needed to identify the approach of our mighty First Company Commander, " Yukon " Smith. Not satisfied with being mediocre, " Big John " modestly excels in any field of endeavor. Equally adept on the gridiron and in the boxing ring, " Smitch " is also the latest gift to the New York Social Register, one of whom has trapped " Yuke " . ROBERT STRANGE JR. 175 Wilmington, North Carolina A character expert could read a lot in his eyes and the laugh behind them. They have that friendly attraction we know, also, the active mind and generous heart behind his calm exterior. His wit, like his sabre, strikes true. His principal interests included sailing, painting, fencing and enjoying life. There was no finer comrade for work or play. CHARLES ELLIS WILLIAMS, JR. 175 Lexington, North Carolina Charlie is a real student, but his academic seriousness never obscured his love of sport and play. Ambition and an excel- lent sense of duty urged him on to do his best. When out in the shipping world, Charlie will be a great attribute to any line, due to his unfailing devotion to duty and his ability to arouse his own enthusiasm and that of others. J I fi tl. • m ROBERT J. AMRIEN 176 Hoboken, New Jersey You could always depend on " Slick " to pull some prank at almost any time. Aside from these light moments, he also hod his serious moods. He got the necessary " better than average " grades out of the " Wild West " books he constantly read. However, you were just as likely to walk into his room and find him pondering oyer a physics text. DONALD W. ATKISSON 176 Aurora, Missouri Scholastic Award — Midships — Rifle Company ... It must have taken a real interest in engineering to have brought " Red " to sea and to the Academy. An engineer from Missouri doesn ' t have much of a chance for his ship to dock near the " old home town. " He was one of the four " star " men. " Rusty " was well liked by everyone, probably because he didn ' t talk too much and didn ' t hove any complicated problems. LESTER C. CASH 176 NoYoto, California Camera Club . . . The section ' s Transportotion Agent was also known as " speed demon, " since he was the only one that hod a car. The tires weren ' t very good, so he could only accomodote twenty of the twenty-five of us. Another " West Coaster, " he was right at home on o farm, and literally " nuts " about " Ford V-8 ' s and caterpillar trocktors. We expect, nevertheless, to see " Les " go to town with Diesel engines. JOHN CLAUSE, Jr. 176 Lodi, New Jersey Cadet Officer — Polaris, Public Relations — Rifle Company . . . " Hoppy-go-Lucky " Johnny from New Jersey had almost three times as much " sea time " as some of us. If he wasn ' t singing, he was telling stories or playing cards, in spite of duties he acquired by being a Cadet Officer. He always thought of " big business " and just how he could get there, but has not found out as yet. HARRY S. FOX 176 Ojion, Tennessee Swimming Team, Manoger — Radio Club . . . Although he was another of the boys who lived south of the " Mason- Dixon " line, he seemed to be very content anywhere he went. A " star " student who showed everyone how to do their homework, he ' ll undoubtedly go places in engineering, and some day build the power plants of the future for us to operate. HERMES GANTTER HAGUE 176 Pascagoula, Mississippi For some reason not quite clear, he was known to all as " Gunder. " The whys and wherefores of it all ore shrouded in the mists of ontiquity, otherwise known as his Plebe training. Although serious looking, he dislikes taking anything to heart. His interests ore mony ond varied, ranging from " bull sessions " to dragging blind. He ' ll take a chance on anything, and we predict he ' ll go a long way and odd to his host of friends. tm] 176 BB9RR93n9!3VeP!96Vinn IMllvUIWIllU ' JIIIilWI ' " -tm rjT HERBERT SVEN HAMMAREN 176 Bellerose, New York A hearty, infectious laugh is a sure indication of Herb ' s presence, and behind that laugh there is a disposition just as amiable. His heart is with anything that sails, and if it doesn ' t sail, then he rows it. Often tried, but never lacking. Herb possesses all those qualities which mean character. HAMMAREN ALAN GRADY HODGE 176 Birmingham, Alabama What do we desire in a friend? Common interests, sense of humor, cheerfulness, and thoughtfulness ore some of the more important qualities — Alan has them all. His wide circle of friends is accounted for by his wide diversity of inter- ests. His amiability, unselfishness and readiness to help, made Alan not just onother classmate, but a true friend. WILLIAM L. KAYLOR 176 Lucas, Ohio Rifle Company . . . " Little Willie " was a happy, quiet fellow. When he looked our way, we often wondered what he was thinking. In academics, he was in the overage half of the section. It seemed Willie hadn ' t much in the world to worry about. Women didn ' t bother him and neither did we, so what more could he ask for? EDWARD JOSEPH KUNECKI 176 St. Joseph, Michigon Football — Propeller Club — Radio ... Ed heard the call to go a-sailing from the fields of Michigan. He made his way into the Academy with no difficulties at all, either physically or mentally. Academics held no terrors for him, and a path was soon beaten to his door by those not quite so savvy, who had heard of his ability to cope with sterner problems of steam and diesel. THOMAS P. LUEDERS 176 Niles, Michigan One of the biggest fellows in the section, Tom had many friends. His greatest virtue was eating and, if you happened to sit at the some table with him, starvation was inevitable. A hopeful future Marine Engineer from the University of Michigan, Tom really showed us what one can get out of books. His many pastimes include good cigars, lowdown jazz, and poetry. WILLIAM NIGHTINGALE MAKEPEACE 176 Providence, Rhode Island Windjammers — Dinghy Team . . . From a most interesting New England town comes Bill to enrich the memories that our class will hove when gazing in retrospect upon life at the Academy. To us he has been on easy-going, congeniol classmate, admirobly suited for life ot the Academy. He has kept himself well occupied in sports, as exhibited in his wonderful performance as coxswain of the winning boat crew in the dinghy races. With such on excellent friend ond roommate we hope to part only temporarily. MAKEPEACE SMM EUGENE O. MUNSON 176 Beaumont-, Texas Radio Club . . . " The Kid " was a native Texan and shows it in his calm manner of walking, talking and morching. He was one of the good-natured, easygoing guys who took a lot of kidding. His brown eyes earned him the name of " puppy dog, " his octions bolstered the name, but his mind disapproved it. The final decision, " We like puppy dogs from Texas. " JOHN JAMES PENNIE 176 Union City, New Jersey ith him came the boundless energy, loyalty, and sense of humor that John came to Kings Point from New Jersey, and distinguishes him as a certain winner. Everything in which he participated resulted in o high degree of success. He displayed his talents in pleasant ways, on attribute welcomed by oil. STANLEY ALBERT SCHMIDT 176 Hibbing, Minnesota In the wilds of Northern Minnesota this twentieth century combination of young Lochinvar and Robert Bruce spent his time chasing deer. Since returning to the wilds of Long Island, he has constantly been chased by the " dears " . Best known for a nimble wit and everpresent sense of subtle humor, there lies close beneath the surface a rich ore of conscientious energy. We hope for his own protection, he will report aboard ship with a heavy beard, to keep the mermaids owoy. LAWRENCE EUGENE SHEA 176 Flushing, New York From G quiet house in Flushing came the energetic " Sunshine. " It is best not to rely on his sunny disposition until ofter breakfast, because the exertions of the early morning routine often make him unreasonable. His affection for shower baths and bright city lights is exceeded only by his ability to complete his duties in time to make the first liberty party. LEONARD THOMAS SILVERIA 176 Vailejo, California From sunny California, where the tall redwoods grow, come Len. He says that the California climate mokes men. Len ' s on oil around good sport with plenty of courage. His love of life although a bit limited, blossoms forth every now and then in episodes which would moke Romeo appear in need of a coaching. Such incidents, however, do not do a good man harm, so he remains hoppy and congenial. To this add on energetic, likable fellow, who doesn ' t eat Florida oranges, and you have Len. ROBERT WENDELL THORN 176 Akron, Ohio What favorable forces harmonized to produce such on agreeable character as Bob Thorn, no one knows. Either the mid-western atmosphere, or his associations with people has given him a rich outlook on life. He ploys life as a comedy, seriously yet smilingly. For amusement and hobbies, he enjoys anything from motion pictures to canoeing. Personality flashes in his smiling black eyes, sufficient guarantee against his being a dull fellow. 125 ' • •tm tiT mUIJlM.nVJAUM»WI1IHJniJHHI EDWARD M.TREGASKIS Vailejo, California " Eddie " , from the West Coost, is another More Island boy, who helped us when it come to studying piping and related subjects.

If we wanted someone to come out on the weekends with us, to keep us out of trouble and well subdued, " Ed " was our man. JOHN K. VITAS TREGASKIS 176 Portland, Oregon Midships — Camera Club — Host Committee — Ski Club, President . . . " Clug " hoils from Portland, Oregon. He came into the section with a 1905 Almanac in his left hand and with his right hand he extended a greeting to everyone. " J. K ' s " extra-curricular activities kept him away from intimate contact with the section, although he was with us in class and in spirit. We were glad to have this gregarious " West Coaster " with us. JAMES WALKER 176 Clyde, North Carolina Jim was born and reared on the sunny fields of a Carolina plantation. That land of God has hod a great influence on him. His, " I ' m going home and plant cotton, " spoken in that soft Carolina accent, may be a bit of irony, but it expresses Jim ' s character. Always happy, forever smiling, liked by all, yes a true Southerner and proud of it. A thorough stu- dent, and an athlete all in one, Jim can ' t be classified under any headings, since he is an all around fellow. He can hold anyone ' s interest on almost any subject. EDWIN S. WENZEL, Jr. 176 Newport News, Virginia Scholastic Award — Camera Club — Radio Club . . . " Stu " , as we knew him, hod the long stride of a real track man, but we couldn ' t get him out for cross country lost fall. In P. T. he really showed us how to run. He also showed us that he ' s got what it takes, when he acquired his " star " . We really respect him and know he ' ll be a big success in the future. WILLIAM T. WINAND 176 Baltimore, Maryland Cadet Officer — Sound-off, News Staff — Rifle Company . . . " Phoney Bill " was a big time promoter. He spent a good deal of time figuring out how to do the least and get the most on work details, etc. Upon his return from sea duty, he became Cadet Officer and eventually mode Security Officer. " Big Bill " now intends to go out and work some big deals, both in Baltimore and in the shipping industry. { v ROBERT ANOREW BERMINGHAM 181 New Rochelle, New York Bob is the kind of fellow who wilts the instructor with his smile and makes the B.O.O.W. think twice before report- ing him. Life at the Academy has not been difficult for Bob. Believing that sleep is the best cure for all troubles, he has burned little midnight oil. " Take it easy, " is his best advice. He loves to play, but he does not concentrate on any one sport. Bob has token a turn at everything, but give him a small boat with a sail and some wind and he ' ll stay with it. Known for his quiet good humor, Bob Is a welcomed addition to any group. :i PHILIP DEAN BRAY 181 Noblesville, Indiana If you are in search of a typical member of the class, Phil is your man. Alwoys ready for a good time, Phil never misses a hop or Battalion Dance. His study hours always begin o little late. Phil enjoys arguing and never loses, as long as volume is the deciding factor. Even the confined life at the Academy doesn ' t hold Phil down, for he rates dates from the upper end of the Bronx down to the Battery. His time here has been successful and we know that his future will be even more successful. FRANK JOSEPH CARRIG 181 Buffalo, New York The dances come and go and so does Frank; he goes to all of them. He is the first to chow, first to bed, and last to sing the blues. With no fear of academics after exams ore over, he spends his time answering stacks of fan moil. Many a poor maid ' s stationary reposes on his desk, awaiting a spore moment in Frank ' s busy life. He has dabbled in many sports, but none has successfully retained the young athlete ' s interests. Twelve months of domestic bliss is mute testimony to Frank ' s ability to be a lawyer, judge and room-mate. OLIVER KEITH COLLAR 181 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Through the bustle of his short time here at Kings Point, " Olie " has shown effort and energy of which he should be proud. He is easy going but not lazy, and when there is reason for hurry, " Olie " con show speed that is surprising. He thinks nothing of showering at formation time, for dressing in two minutes is easy for him. He con do it without losing one bit of his western thoroughness. " Olie " combines on energetic, jovial personality with a great sense of humor in such a way that making friends is the inevitable result. JOSEPH PATRICK CONROY 181 Brooklyn, New York Joe ' s humor and poise have proven irrisistable to those who really know him. That certain " man about town " attitude exploins at least a part of the fatal charm which our Joe exerts over his feminine friends. Like the average Brooklyn mail, he has his opinions and expresses them frankly and definitely. Joe ' s a good companion, and a great guy to have with you on Saturday night. JOHN THOMAS COSTIGAN 181 Bloomington, Illinois The doily arrival of the Bloomington " Pantograph " in the morning mail was Tom ' s big morale booster. He liked his news from home, and was always very blue when it was not on time. Reading was one of his greatest diversions, but he was also well known in intra-murol circles. When the liberty coll blew, he was sure to be first in line. GEORGE GILBERT FIELD 181 Denver, Colorado From his nonchalant, composed expression, and his easy manner of walk, we know that worry never gets the upper hand on George. He appears to the stranger as the quiet type, but to his friends he is the still water type that seems very deep. As a matter of fact, George is usually the life of the party. His agreeable nature will keep him clear of trouble, and his persistence will put him in the finish with the rest. IVUIEUULHiUMUMllWIIIIIUH JOHN ELMORE FUREN Baytown, Texas Scholastic Award ... A University of Texas man, " Red " took his basic training at Pass Christian. While at sea it is alleged that he set a record in the amount of time required to get into a life boot. Here at Kings Point he distinguished himself by never receiving a demerit dur- ing his stay — a remarkable feat, performed by a re- markable fellow. EUGENE MEREDITH GUNN 181 Mobile, Alabama Rifle Company . . . Gene had one big problem at Kings Point: he could never find o suitable name for the shipping company he hopes to establish one day. He would spend study hall after study hall murmuring to himself, " Shall it be the Darling Line or the Carolyn Lines? " Gene may never realize his dream, but we feel sure he is destined to be a big man in the maritime industry. WARREN ADAMS JACKMAN 181 Springfield, Illinois Scholastic Award — Propeller Club — Rifle Company . . . Enhanced with a ready will, cheerful disposition, and a quiet, serious manner, " Duke " easily surmounted the many obstacles encountered at Kings Point. Although volunteering much of his time to extra-curricular activities, and maintoining an infallible way with the women, he eosly won the Scholastic Aword. His many friends will always remember him as a person who never refused to lend a helping bond. ROBERT HOLMES JOHNSON 181 Kodiak, Alaska Regimental Staff — Glee Club — Dance Band . . . Cadet-Midshipmen come from many for flung places, but Bob is one of the few who hail from America ' s last frontier, Alaska. His adventures and amiable personal traits ore combined in a distinctive personality. In addition to performing his duties with zeal and accuracy, he wrote poetry and was on ex- cellent pianist. RAY WILLIAM JOHNSON 181 Park Ridge, Illinois A plastic sense of humor, varying as the occasion demands makes Ray one of the finest of room-mates. A fellow who possesses this enviable quality of being able to be friendly with everybody will olwoys get along. He has hod his ups and downs at the Acodemy, scolosticolly and socially, as hove the rest of us. But as you see, he graduated, and with his ability to apply himself, he will continue to go a long way, and not aimlessly either, for Ray knows where he wonts to go before he starts there. BILLY JOHN KELLY 181 Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Billy is an all around boy who does well in anything he sets out to do. Women are no source of worry for Billy. He merely smiles and doesn ' t let them upset his stride. Cracking the books has been one of his difficulties, but he smiles his way through them. A strong will and dilligent effort have carried him through. I JOHNSON, R. H. JOHNSON, R. W. - 1 I DELANO WOOD LADD, JR. 181 Plainfield, New Jersey Windjammers — Baseball . . . " Del " would doubtlessly moke on excellent G-man if he could capture gangsters as well as he could outrun Long Island policemen in his 1932 supar roodmoster. He was very proud of the jalopy. However, when not touring the countryside in his car, " Del " spent his time playing baseball for the Academy. Fortunately, he was a much better short stop than driver. CHARLES DAVID MAYER 181 Bayerton, Pennsylvania No mistaking Charlie; his smile monopolizes everything from his head to his feet, and very little can disturb his subtle Pennsylvania nature. Never angry, his ready smile on all occasions, his ability to take a joke, and his easy going dis- position are the secrets of his personality. Charlie ' s sincerity and straight forwardness have made him a " man ' s man. " At RONALD EARL MILLER 181 New Orleans, Louisiana From away down yonder, " the Earl " come to Kings Point. A man about town, a good judge of mint juleps, o southern gentleman and scholar, characterize " the Earl, " " Books, women, and a good time, is the best possible mixture; " is his philosophical approach to life. Lively, friendly, and good natured is our " Earl. " EDMUND MORGAN 181 Baltimore, Maryland Midships, Photography Editor — Camera Club ... Ed was noted for the pictures that decorated his locker door. There was not only the usual one, but three — two girls and a squirrel. He divided his love equally among them. " Bunky " was very active about the Academy as the Midships Photographer. His big moment came when he had the opportu- nity to dictate orders to the Regimental Commander while taking his picture. EMMETT WILLIAM PACETTI 181 Washington, D. C. " E. W. " had one favorite pastime, the study and appreciation of beautiful redheads. Like a character from a Runyon novel, he spent the summers at Jones Beach and the winters on Times Square, moving his headquarters only OS the flow of " Judys " ebbed or slackened. When not engaged in this delightful pursuit, Ed played foot- ball and basketball. His talents in these sports did much to help his company ' s teams. JAMES ANTHONY POAT 181 Paducah, Kentucky Propeller Club — Radio Club . . . Jim was a rarity among Cadet-Midshipmen: he did not care for girls. In fact they were strictly taboo as far as he was concerned. But in other things, " Plushbottom " was more normal. A great reader, he digested almost every book in the library, and probably would have finished the job hod not graduation intervened. Conscientious, loyal, and am- bitious, Jim is headed for a successful career at sea. t t nm rj IH«llinEillUUMM aB«UIIWIII r:i-r r tm] 181 GEORGE CARROL PREVILL 181 Rand, West Virginia Philosopher ' s Club — Regimental Staff ... A conscien- tious worker, George possessed the quality of self con- fidence that distinguishes on officer and a gentleman. His assuring manner in official relations inspired in all who worked with him a deep respect for his competence. His quiet humor was on unending source of delight to oil acquaintances. Yet despite his light acceptance of every day matters, we found in him the underlying sense of a more serious nature. RICHARD STANLEY ROSS 181 Lincoln Park, Michigan Boxing — Rifle Company . . . " You haven ' t really been a Cadet-Midshipman unless you have dated a model, " some unknown immortal once said, and our " Bullmoose " believed him emphatically. It was only a matter of time before Dick hod one on the line, and he soon became famous among us for his ability to choose dotes of abounding pulchri- tude. His eye was beauty was only matched by his ability in the ring. RICHARD JOSEPH SNYDER 181 Detroit, Michigan Scholastic Award — Swimming . . . Dick, the lad with the winning personality, never knew the feeling of frustration. No matter how poorly things seemed to be going, he never let them get the best of him. His easy going nature and, happy outlook on life were his greatest assets in time of trouble. Top man in his class scholasticolly, Dick used swim- ming to expel the excess energy for which he was noted. CONSTANTINE PETER STINY 181 Denver, Colorado Propeller Club — Ski Club ... It is only natural that a person hoiling from the snow capped mountains of Colorado should be interested in skiing. " C. P. " lived, breathed, and dreamed the sport. We believe it was o severe shock to him when found that Kings Point was not situated on top of Bear Mountain. What will he do when he ' s at sea? Why, water ski, of course! JOHN NELSON THURMAN 181 Phoenix, Arizona Propeller Club — Track . . . Johnny was dubbed " Hero " by his merciless pals soon after the news of his exploits at sea became known, but he refused to acknowledge the title. Well known among football circles in the southwest, he held several football scholarships. " Hero " is not only embarking on an oceanic career, but he is also signing articles for a trip on the sea of matrimony. BERT GRANT TYDEMAN, JR. 181 Gatun, Canal Zone Bert, although from the Conol Zone, is at heart o Pennsylvania boy. He has spent most of his life in the Keystone State.

Ever since he viewed his first regotta in Central America, his favorite pastime has been yachting. THURMAN I r r JOHN ALLEN WILSON 181 Steubenville, Ohio Tin Fish Club . . Courage and ability ore already proven in John. Known to us as " Chief, " he gained the title from serving as First Officer of his liberty ship during the Leyte invasion, during which time the vessel was sunk. One of his greatest qualities was neatness, and he always presented an immaculate appearance. The easiest way to describe John is to say, " to know him was to admire him. " CARL PERSON WORLEY, JR. 181 Selma, North Carolina Company Commander — Scholastic Award — Propeller Club — Rifle Company . . . Short in stature but dynamic in per- sonality, Carl worked himself through the maze of petty officer ratings to achieve his Cadet Officer commission In short order. He acquired the colorful nickname, " Lover Boy " after exhibiting considerable talent in the Boyer tech- nique. It is rumored that wedding bells will soon be tolling in the Carolines. JOHN UPTON BASCOM 182 Manhattan, Kansas First Company Commander — Glee Club — Scholastic Award . . . The only fellow In his section wearing the cherished star, he never stopped amazing the fellows with his ability to sleep through every class and still turn up with those 3.8 ' s. If anyone ever needs help, good sound advice, or just a swell friend, he ' ll find Johnny ready to fill the bill. JOEL ARTHUR BENSON 182 Moline, Illinois Track . . . From the heart of the mid-west, though originally from the deep south, Joel was one of the speedier mem- bers of our section. A member of the track team for two years, he mode good use of those flying feet for the Academy. His achievements were not limited to the cinders since he was equally as quick in the classroom as on the track. His sharp wit and cheerful disposition made him welcome to any group. HARRY WHIT BOURGEOIS 182 New Orleans, Louisiana Intramural Softball — Propeller Club . . . The originator of countless practical jokes and the inspiration of many mirth making groups caused this jocular fellow to be known as " Hilarious Horry " . His clear thinking and reliable fore- sight proved him worthy of any company he chose. To know Harry was to know a true friend and a considerate and dependable shipmate. JOHN DOUGLAS BYERS 182 Springfield, Ohio John was a versatile lad well grounded in a multitude of desirable subjects. His unparalleled sense of humor was used to good advantage since he enthusiastically welcomed every request to pantomime our acquaint- ances. He was truly a genius in the art of mimicking. Casual and natural, he belittled his woes and ours. With confidence we soy, " Byers, one of Kings Point ' s best " . 131 mBRBKHimi -S: ts tm] 1S2 - MALCOLM CLIFTON DAVENPORT, JR. 182 Orlando, Florida Propeller Club — Glee Club . . . " Mac " Davenport, a true believer in the Confederacy, affable and well liked by everyone. His proficiency in his studies indicated that success in the future is inevitable. His innate ability to overcome obstacles was well demonstrated during his stay at the Academy. Without a doubt, he will be a man the state of Florida will be proud of in the near future. WALTER SHELDON DAYTON, JR. DAVENPORT 182 Bayside, New York Cadet Officer — Swimming Team — Windjammers . . . Dependable, strong, loyal in friendship, and always ready to see the humor in life, he has been and always will be a friend worth having. He was never too busy to act as a one man dote bureau and aid his section mates in obtaining dates with the locol femmes. His ability to do a good job with a minimum of effort will stand him good stead in any phase of his life. DAVID KINGSLEY EVANS, JR. 182 Dayton, Ohio Company Commander — Intramural Softball . . . " Root " come to the Cadet Corps fresh out of high school. To say that Dayton ' s loss was the Cadet Corps ' gain would not be stretching the point. He hod the forethought ond obility to think a situation through that was the envy of many of his shipmates. He was a clear-headed thinker as well as an excellent adversary in on a.rgument. JOHN KENNEDY FELDBUSH 182 Short Hills, New Jersey Propeller Club — Glee Club — Intramural Softball . . . John was best liked for his quick wit and ready, helping hand. Always a good mixer and an asset to any party, he was one of the guiding lights for our social activities. His qualities, not limited to his personality, also reached into the classroom and onto the athletic field. Looking over his past achievements and many potentialities, we ore able to predict a bright future for him in any field he may choose. WENDELL CHARLES GIBSON 182 Temple, Oklahoma Like all Westerners, " Wendy " had Wrestling — Intramural Softball — Propel ler Club — Windjammers — Glee Club . . . Like all westerners, Wendy had o heart open to all and always hod a cheery greeting handy. On song-fests, he could always be depended upon to add his melodious voice which was olso a substantial aid to the Academy ' s Glee Club. Not to be found lacking on any occasion, his witty remarks and cheerful personality added life to any gathering. I I THOMAS GOEDEWAAGEN 182 Alameda, California Propeller Club — Windjammers — Glee Club . . . This smiling Dutchman ' s unopposed success over academics and life in general won for him a definite place in the section. Never to be forgotten are the blissful moments between reveille and tattoo when " Goody " boldly snatched dates with Morpheus, and also his humorous breaks with Rules and Regu- lations. Very noted was his rare combination of common sense, intelligence and wide interest. I GOEDEWAAGEN «? WARREN CHRISTIAN GROSS 182 Stockton, California Propeller Club — Camera Club . . . Never pushing onyone over In the race for academic laurels, we found beneath his wry smile quiet, agreeable personality which made and kept for him many friends. A follower of Morpheus, Warren skillfully slept through even the most trying barriers of academic life. Because he took everything in stride, we were all impressed with his industriousness at study hall. JOSEPH PETER HENSEL 182 St. Louis, Missouri Wrestling — Propeller Club . . . Without Joe Hensel, this section would not have been complete. His fine philosophy of life and excellent sense of humor were always the envy of his classmates. Joe ' s greeting, " Hi-ya buddy " , was well known and respected by all, for we knew it came from the bottom of his heart. A better sport and all around friend could not be found. EDWARD SAMUEL HOCHUL! 182 Richmond Hill, New York Propeller Club — Swimming . . . " The Hock " , as Ed was known throughout the section, was o familiar sight to all. While most of us spent our spare time in bull sessions or reading, Ed could usually be found in Marshall Pool working to improve his breaststroke. As long as Ed pursues life with the same determined intentions as he has shown in all endeavors at the Academy, he cannot foil at anything he undertakes. BENNIE FRANK HODGES 182 Frost, Texos Intramural Softball — Propeller Club — Football ... In " Red " , the Lone Star state again produced a son who has met and mastered the Kings Point system with confidence and skill. He had on unusual knowledge and interest in his marine engineering work. Perhaps this, along with his winning smile, made him so fascinating to the ladies. In his stay here at the Academy, Frank built up an enviable athletic record. DEWITT TALMADGE HOLLAND 182 Birmingham, Alabama Propeller Club — Windiammers . . . Take a true Southerner, add o pinch of stubbornness, stir in a heaping spoonful of good old common sense, pour in plenty of true honesty ond spirit, mix thoroughly with a good measure of fellow- ship, pour into good six foot glass and there you have " Dutch " . A quiet, unassuming, fellow, he was always ready to lend a skillful and helping hand to those who needed it. i!«US!1 ARTHUR PETER JENSEN, JR. 182 Benicia, California Propeller Club . . . Clinging to his belief in " California excelsior " with undying tenacity. Bud, " The Benicia Kid " , Jensen would be a welcomed addition to the Sun- shine State Chamber of Commerce. He was a rollicking, good natured sort of individual, yet truly practical, with Q strain of salt in his blood inherited from his enterpris- ing Danish fore-fathers. A good all-around athlete, amteur photographer, and student. tmt4€ 133 BBMBBWimWlMlMIIPHIlllMIIHIIUlM r:ur -r:i tm] 1B2 J. PHILIP KATZENMEYER JR. 182 Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania Propeller Club — Comera Club . . . With a background in the steel industry, and having studied at both the Carnegie Institute of Technology ond the University of Pittsburgh, Phil had a desirable tendency toward Marine Engineering. In spite of the adversities of academic life, he maintained his calm dignity and soft spoken consid- eration for others. Complete sincerity and determination combined with on unswerving loyalty to friends and duty made him a matchless shipmate. KATZENMEYER KLEINSCHMIDT ARTHUR GEORGE KLEINSCHMIDT, JR. 182 New Orleans, Louisiana Football — Propeller Club — Intramural Softball . . . The name of A. G. Kleinschmidt will be remembered for his efforts in representing Kings Point on the gridiron. He always fought to win, but defeat found him a good loser. His good nature and magnetic personality won for him many friends, an his determination, initiative, and love for the Cadet Corps have given him on excellent start towards success. WILLIAM BRYAN LAVENDER 182 Port Arthur, Texas _. . . . The Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce had on eager representative in " Tex " La ender. Besides plugging for his home town, he will always be remembered for his drive, ' •■ " — -. -.a,, tu„ ,i„ro„,. Cadet Officer — Cheer Leade or out. His activities were always marked by his determination and through to a prompt and thorough finish. hether inside the classroom his ability to take a difficult task and see it ROBERT CHARLES LENDT 182 Rochester, New York Cross Country — Propeller Club — Glee Club — Rifle Company . . . The heart is truly the most important port of body and surely none better earned that place in our section than " Bobbie " Lendt. His cheerful countenance, in tious smile, and jovial disposition made him one of the best liked personalities on the base. His deep, mellow v could carry the melody for on informal gothering as well as for the Academy ' s Glee Club. THOMAS PAUL O ' DONNELL 182 Detroit, Michigan Propeller Club — Camera Club . . . Always quick to relate the tales of his " 15 months Ijefore the most " aboard the S. S. Kit Carson, " Todd " was a typical Irishman. He had a habit of speaking without wasting words and was always willing to fight for his beliefs. While spending much of his spore time slipping up on the Academy regulations, he will undoubtedly spend much of his life praising as well as honoring it. CHARLES REINHART 182 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania When Charlie ' s tolented fingers picked up a pencil, the sketches seemed to flow effort- Propeller Club — Polaris . . . ..., .. w..-... . - , . .., - ..■■ -■ t,.-.— - , - , — .- lessly from its point. For his abilities he became o major pillar for Polaris. With his optimistic outlook on life and his willingness to help others with their troubles, he was truly a friend. We ore all looking forward to seeing his works hanging in all the art galleries. LAVENDER O ' DONNELL 1 i • WILLIAMSON GEORGE JACOB SCHOTT, JR. 182 New Orleans, Louisiana Propeller Club — Glee Club . . . " Georgeous George " was a big, hondsorrie, and extremely cheerful product of the South. Having a completely optimistic outlook on life made him the fellow you liked to have around. Not wholly dependent on his personality for getting olong with people, he always turned a mean trick when playing a fourth at bridge.: George is destined to lead a successful and happy life showering his good will upon all fortunate enough to know him. HUGH ARTHUR SHAW, JR. 182 Peoria, Illinois Fourth Company Commander — Intramural Softball . . . Hugh was most likely to be found in the midst of any high class bull session. Mention of the opposite sex was strictly tabu in his presence, but it was a known fact that the light in his eye was not there to light up the night. With his splendid characteristics and devoted kindness, we know he will hove a prosperous future and, in the years to come, will be an outstanding citizen in his already famous Peoria. JOHN ROSS SISSON 182 Brooklyn, New York Propeller Club . . . John ' s proficiency in both studies and athletics indicated that success for him wos merely a matter of moking up his mind. To him, the Academy was a serious matter, since, for mony generations, his family has con- tributed ships officers, and even pirates, to the fleets of America. Duty and responsibility were always his first objec- tives, but, under oil conditions, he had a joke or a friendly smile for his clossmates, BILLY PETE WILLIAMSON 182 Chattanooga, Tennessee Propeller Club — Windjammers . . . Whenever you sow 6 ' 6 " of blond masculinity with a 90 mission hat and a new Kinsten pipe in his mouth it was B. P. Williamson, alias " Big Bird Dog " , you were looking at. The tallest man in the Regiment, it ' s still a mystery how he got post the Novy doctors. The Merchont Marine will welcome this young officer who has such on abundance of common sense combined with a liberal dash of stubborn intelligence. FRANK CURTIS WOHLRABE 182 Milwaukee, Wisconsin Footboll . . . " Moose " spent most of his time alternating between football and sleeping in class while at the Academy. Hiss 200 odd pounds put plenty of sting in his tackles and a dignified snore in his naps. One of his outstanding qualities was his innate desire for neatness which always assured o good personal appearance. His common sense and keen insight into human nature will insure his success as a marine engineer. ALEXANDER WILLIAM DeWITT ALEXANDER 187 Berkeley, California Despite the strong temptation to chant, " Alexander is a swoose, " it was customary to address him os Alex. One ' s first impression of Alex was that of his serious nature, gentlemanly conduct, and cultured background. This, however, cloaked a vast wealth of wit and capacity for good fun. Besides warbling in the Glee Club and beat- ing path to the library, you usually found Alex singing a song of woe which generally concerned whether or not demerits would keep him in during the coming week-end. _r4-r r:i tmi im 135 fmagmmm nnnnrauivtiiiuuMiiwiuiiHiiB DONALD A. BECK Norborne, Missouri The nickname, " The Beak " , comes from, os one might suppose, his nose. Not that it is so tremendously big, but it ' s just that he had the biggest nose in the section. As far as con be determined, the highlight of " The Beak ' s " academic life was doing the least possible in the most time. He was quite generous, good nafured, and liked by everyone in the section. We ' re sure everyone will remember " The Beak " . JAMES AUGUST BERTEL JR. 187 New Orleans, Louisiana Jim, one of our New Orleans representatives, will always be remembered for that broad smile which he always wore. He utilized his study periods to the fullest extent, thinking of Peggy, and wondering if the fleet had landed. Not to be overlooked in this brief dissertation was Jim ' s impressive performance as C. C. B. O. STANFORD REES BOHNE 187 Palo Alto, California Stan left " sun-kissed " California with aspirations of becoming Uncle Sam ' s top skipper. Quickly he made staunch friends, for his quolities naturally won respect. With this friendliness, patience, willingness to work, and his courtesy and tact, Stan will succeed in his endeavors, and a prosperous, happy and worthwhile life looms ahead of him. JOHN WILDER BOWDEN 187 Highland Park, Illinois Scholastic Award . . . " All those not wishing to eat may fall out " , and the first to leave was always Bowden rushing back to beat those books, or was it the food? " The AverogE " , as he was commonly called, was on ardent teller of salty toles. In spite of all his studying, Bowden was never afraid to let down his hair and give out with a loud crock — usually on the subject of being on repo rt — which could be heord from Patten Hospital to the end of Mollory Pier. JOHN BYRDELL BOYD 187 Caldwell, Texas Track . . . John was a quiet, soft-spoken Texan with a very amiable nature, good looks, ond that slow Texas drawl. He is noted for his impossible basketball shots over the head, and a strong arm on the main sweep. You could always count on Boyd to turn up with the best deals. When it come to morning exercises though, you could always find him in the darkest part of the passageway. DAVID BARROW CARRUTH 187 Pleasanfville, New York None will ever bear the hardships of our class-mate, " The Little Duke. " With a few cents jingling in his pocket, he would journey on a weekend to the " Big City, " and within a few minutes by train Dove was sitting at his home enjoy- ing a luscious dinner. On the other hand, when he found the journey home too tedious, he could be found seeing his flame in Great Neck. ?- ' 4. ■A THOMAS DUFFY 187 Washington, District of Columbia Varsity Boxing , . . From the nation ' s capital we were blessed with taxes, laws, currency, and T. Michael Duffy, " The Sunbeam " of 187. Prior to his hand meeting a firm head, and producing a broken thumb, he was making rapid progress with the boxing team. It is rumored that Lieutenant Twoomey was inconsolable. " The Duff, " as he is some- times called, possessed an Irish smile that all of us found to be very contogious. CLIFF EDWARD FITTON JR. 187 Cedartown, Georgia Track . . . Parties were apparently rated high on Cliff ' s entertoinment list. We often wondered how his golf games over on South Drive came out, and what he could have been doing out on Long Island Sound during the V-J Day cele- brations. Two trips each week to New York oil summer, must hove meant important business. " Fitt " was rated high In attainment of demerits, but always hod a deep love for Cadet Officers. DONALD OLAF HANA 187 San Francisco, California Who could overlook that long and lanky form so possessively commanding the sweep, those squinted eyes emerging from bushy eyebrows, and that weather beaten face? Indeed no one will forget the " Sea Dog, " a salt born of the sea and Viking Heritage, for Hona justly earned the reputation of being the salt of the section. Just ask him as he lay on his sack, feet extending over the edge, and he would tell you. ROBERT IVAN KABAT 187 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Bob come from the " Steel City, " bringing enthusiasm for ethics and politics, but no malign characteristics. Playing a neutral field he would take either side of the story just to keep things lively. Bob ' s inherent capacity for work will crown his every effort, whotever he does. WILLIAM ROBERT LAMB 187 Evanston, Illinois To all who gaze upon this portroit of Bill Lamb, nicknamed " Lambda da chop, " by his ever-present section mates, he appears only as another overage Cadet-Midshipman, but behind that countenance lay a character filled with potential " can-do " mixed with a rare sense of caustic wit. Bill, coming from the vicinity of somewhat notorious Chicago, was constantly referred to as " The Big Gun. " JAMES WYLIE LANIER 187 Lake City, Florida .f you ever wanted to know the latest dance step or the newest jive records, Jim was the person to turn to. To his intimate section mates he was known as the " Tear- drop " (pronounced " TEEEEEEERDROP " ) . The name was bestowed upon him this past summer. Get him to tell you how. After he tells you ' this, you ' ll understand why he was on the swimming team. 137 JUR WIUUUWUIUflAl ' KUIHIiV MiHJWHUUIIlUUiyi nH ERNEST JOSEPH LERUTH JR. New Orleans, Louisiana As the section marched off, Leruth would bring up the reor, fumbling with his dozen navigation books and add- ing the caustic remark, " I didn ' t bring my track shoes. " Ernie, affectionately known as the " Beast, " bore the burden of being the subject of the section ' s jests so well that he deserved the title of " Sport. " With his wealth of experiences behind him, he will surely make a suc- cess sailing. JOHN JOSEPH MocARTHUR MocARTHUR 187 Caldwell, New Jersey A regular fellow from the wilds of New Jersey, John is ready for anything and everything, from dragging blind to lend- ing a poor unfortunate room-mate a little cash. From his nonchalont, composed expression, and his easy manner of walk, we know that worry will never get the upper hand in his mind. His agreeable nature will keep him clear of trouble, and his persistency will put him in the finish with the best. GRAY DE GRAFFENRIED MORRISON II 187 New Orleans, Louisiana Gray had the ability to get along with any type of person which, in the case of our section, was quite a feat. We ' ll never forget Gray for his encouraging remarks before we took some important exam, such as " don ' t worry ' bout a thing " or " beat ' em boys, beat ' em " . He never seemed to worry about a thing, but just took things as they came, and what omazes us most was the fact that he was always successful at it. ALFRED STANFORD 187 Ada, Oklahoma Stan ' s primary ambition seemed to have been to read every book in the librory. While we ground away at our text, a side glance found Stan deep in " The Wisdom of Confucius, " or, perhaps, a book on personnel management. He accomplished far more with the fairer sex than most of us. He even claimed that his little red book was overloaded. CARL HENRY STONE 187 Cincinnati, Ohio Don ' t be deceived by his appearance; he really isn ' t the angelic lad you see in the picture. Aside from extra curricular activities, his main hobby is defending the relative. merits of Ohio ' s daughters. Perhaps he can bock up his convictions with proof, but from his past experiences we wonder. We have found Carl even-tempered and tolerant, qualities which will win him many friends. THEODORE EDWIN THEISS JR. 187 Oakland, California Trock . . . Ted, affectionotely called " Honey Bubbles " by his room-mates, could always be counted on for a hearty " I soiled Lurline " during each class in Rules and Regulations, plus a few breath taking tales of the average W. A. A. C. when going overseas, and the mouth watering descriptions of the meals served him daily. Ted was the fortunate possessor of a personality which made him well liked wherever he went. f rpfev ' ' • 1 THOMAS JEFFERSON WILLIAMS 187 Alexander City, Alabama Tom hails from the deep South, and even the rigors of Academy life have failed to change his easy-going ways. He has successfully resisted all attempts to teach him to " talk right " , but his friendly nature has won him many friends. The academic departments hold no fear for Tom, for he knows when the play should stop. Beneath his laugh there is a will coupled with ability that will carry him far. 139 WMMIll W 1 A J.

He does olmost everything with a marked in- difference; however, superb results are usually signifi- cant of his endeavors. Very conservative, but extremely earnest and efficient in all his undertakings, Roger is certain to attain success. FRED BEISSER 242 Fort Dodge, Iowa Cadet Officer — Meritorious Service Award and Medal . . . Fred is a man the Merchant Marine will be proud to have as an officer. The state of Iowa lost a very valuable man when Fred decided on the sea as a career, because since he has been with us he has proved himself o man of extraordinary versatility. Endowed with a large heart, he could be counted on for encouragement when the going got tough. He was one of the outstanding few to receive the Meritor- ious Service Award and Medal for outstanding duty. REX ROLAND BOONE 242 Sentinel, Oklahoma When this quiet lad from the West joined us, he had yet to see his first ship. It mode little difference to him, for he knew what he wanted and went after it. His level head and frank manner have been o good influence on everyone, and it is a proud man who can say he knows him, for in Rex he has a true friend for life. VINCENT BORRELLI 242 Glassport, Pennsylvania Vincent ' s popularity was evidenced by the crowd in his room after chow, whether seeking advice or a friendly chat. His smile won him many a feminine admirer and a host of friends. His well muscled frame speaks clearly of his dili- gent effort in the gym, and his well versed mind speaks just os clearly of application to studies. RALPH JOSEPH CHAMBERLIN 242 Stamford, Connecticut Happy-go-lucky in his manner, Ralph, whether in hall or in ranks, went bouncing merrily on his way. He always stood out among his classmates. His smiling face was found wherever o group was gathering to shoot the breeze. Possessing a serious side too, Ralph wos deeply interested in all information that would help him become a better officer. LOUIS FRANK De GENNARO 242 Freeport, New York Lou does not soy much, but those who break under his cover of dignity find o big heart and a true friend. He hod the force ond perseverance that all of us envy and respect. His contagious personality and restless ability make him one of the most popular and talented men in his class. CHAMBERLIN DE GENNARO DiCOSTANZO LOUIS CARMEN DiCOSTANZO 242 Waterbury, Connecticut We of 242 alone and possibly o scattered group about U.S.M.M.A. know the hidden talents that " Houich " possesses. He is not only a gentleman in word, but also in dress. His innote and learned characteristics have done much to devolope that glowing life on the fourth deck of Cleveland Hall. The winning word — " Men will be men. " UNICE ANDERSON HOAL 242 Roanoke, Virginia Varsity Baseball . . . Not " Who " is on first base, but " Hoal " is on first base! Yes, that was the line:p for U.S.M.M.A. in last season ' s Baseball Club. He certainly batted over 1000 down in our Engineers Hall of " Knowledge and Hard Knocks. " If you walk by Room 3427, you might see a couple of rangy legs sticking around the opposite side of the table at which a man is sitting. " Yep " , there ' s Unice. RICHARD EUGENE JAGGER 242 Mount Gilead, Ohio Windjammers — Propeller Club . . . Straight from the farm, and into the Cadet Corps came this tall husky " Buckeye " lad. But never let it be said that a landlubber can ' t take to the sea. He wasn ' t ploying corn here at the Academy, but he was sure mowing down the books. " Jag " was well liked by all that knew him, and many of his spare hours were spent sailing up and down the Sound. CARL JACOB JAHNES 242 Willimantic, Connecticut Track — Propeller Club — Tin Fish Club ... A man ' s mind contains his power plant. Carl ' s power plant was of the dynamic type. But, as the story goes, boshfulness will hong with a person for years. His participation in Boxing, Track, and class- room oral quizzes, did a world of good to remedy this cause. His membership with the Tin Fish Club at the U.S.M.M.A. was one tribute well earned. HARLAN JOHNSON 242 Cloquet, Minnesota Tenth Company Commander — Propeller Club . . . Modesty is the term to best punctuate Johnny ' s character, but, when modesty and brains are put together, you have a very good two-some. The " Minnesota Kid " was not o ski-jumper, but somewhat of a duck that doesn ' t take to water. This was plainly shown by his quick scramble out of the customary plunge in the pool, after retiring as Company Commander. WILLIAM LEON LEOPOLD 242 Brooklyn, New York Boxing ... All in all Billy was a bit self-centered, but he had good reason for it. He is very neat, quick of eye, keen of ear, and we found it impossible to soap him in any conversations. Wherever he went trouble seemed to follow, for at first appearance he gave the impression of " a wise guy " . However, the second Impression altered the first.

" You con ' t get within five feet of him without hearing what you ' ve missed in " God ' s Country, " with its marvelous scenery. Tom loves dancing, but causes great grief when he in- sists upon dancing around the room when he hears music. His ambition at such times is to equal Fred Astaire. To those who knew Tom he will always be a real friend. JOHN THOMAS McCORMICK - Jk McCORMICK 242 Tracy, Minnesota He ' ll back his Minnesota, where " women ore women and the snow piles twenty feet deep, " against the rest of the universe. He sleeps continually, yet under this well of laziness, there is o wealth of pep; his habitual mad dashes to muster attest to it. A swell fellow, always ready to join anything from a poker gome to a rough and tumble, he ' ll be right there with the best of them when St. Peter makes his final count. I ALBERT MORAN ORAN 242 Ridgefield Park, New Jersey In spite of a serious appearance, Al takes seriously only to the fair sex. Even in the midst of the roughest exami- nations, he keeps something in reserve. Always ready and willing for a bull session, at the beginning of on argument Al knows he ' s right, and at the end his opponent is usually convinced of that fact, for he has the rare capability of mnkinn thp rlripct ciihiprft; linhl- nrtA fiill nf hi imnr making the driest subjects light and full of humor WILBUR LA WTO N MOTTA 242 Washington, D. C. Bill is one of those men whose quick smile and genial nature make you want to know him. He attoins his objectives by hard work rather than genius. Always easy going and cheerful he is on ideal roommate. His constant geniality has mode him a welcomed member of all the bull sessions and weekends. How can you foil to get along with a man who won ' t do anything but smile even in adversity? PAUL ROBERT NOBLE 242 Fort Wayne, Indiana We ' re still trying to figure out why Paul chose a Merchant Marine career (the closest he ' d ever been to a salt spray was a salt water gargle) — whatever the reason, it ' s the Merchant Marine ' s gain. Paul has been one of the best — a real pal and a swell classmate. His good nature and infectious smile hove helped smooth out many a bump during the time we spent here. WORDEN PARSELL 242 Clare, Michigan Worden entered the Academy with more than a good share of experience and common sense. Cheerful and social, he was always good for a bull session or argument. There was no room for chronic complaint in Worden ' s makeup. A conscientious attention to those subjects he considered most practical was another characteristic of this mid-westerner, whose ever present good cheer and friendship we shall long remember. I . ■ 1 P -£ : W» " ' il. • • • 1 rvv ROBINSON DONALD POLIN 242 Bellerica, Massachusetts Few men at the Academy could match Don when it came to determinotion to succeed in anything no matter how large or small. With the thoroughness and ingenuity instilled in him by his Mossachusetts upbringing, Don had no trouble adjusting himself to life at Kings Point. Always ready to try new things, Don has an aggressive spirit that will lead him to greater achievements. KENNETH ROBINSON 242 Ogden, Utah With o friendly personality and a gift for leadership, Ken was bound to succeed from the beginning. Never one to shirk duty, yet still easy going, he stands high in the regard of his classmates. He has been able to solve all problems that have come his way. Full of good cheer, and having a sense of humor. Ken has constantly been a help to one and all. Now that we ore leaving each other for bigger things we realize how fortunate we were to have him among us. PAUL SCOTT ROGERS 242 Elizabeth, Pennsylvania Paul is the sort of person that con get along with whomever and whatever he meets. Characterized by an easy going personality he possesses a sense of humor able to see a funny side in everything. To give you Paul in a few words would be impassible, but no matter what he undertakes, his keen judgment and self-confidence will take him to the top. PAUL JUSTIN SWEENEY 242 West Action, Moss. The possessor of a naturally friendly spirit toward others, Paul ' s inborn qualities have made lasting comrades of his many friends. His personol problems were never too great for him to give his time to the helping of his brother Cadet- Midshipmen. His good nature should stand him in good stead in trying situations while his outstanding ability should carry him far in any field he enters. GEORGE HENRY CARTER 247 East Boston, Massachusetts Ninth Company Commander — Propeller Club . . . George " Pysan " Carter came from proud New England to lead the Ninth Company on Kendrick Field. Nick ' s talent was not confined to Regimental Reviews, but extended to the class- rooms of Bowdifch Hall, where he proved stiff competition for all academic challengers. When o shining new " Super-C " ship slides from the ways in 1948, " Nick " will be her skipper. His real ambition: a big shot stevedore. JERALD FAY BARD 247 Ambridge, Pennsylvania Midships, Makeup Staff — Propeller Club . . . Jerry is a quiet and unassuming comrade, but beneath this appear- ance of reserve, is concealed a drive, determination and ability, so that he was the envy of his section motes throughout his Kings Point career. " The Bird " , as he was affectionately nicknamed, centered his Academy extra-curricular activities around Midships, where he was a mainstay of the Mokeup Staff. tm] 247 ' 145 MM BBim tmi 247 JAMES ROSS BOLTON 247 Sioux City, Iowa Cadet Officer — Midships, Accountant — Glee Club... Jim Bolton, Sioux City ' s gift to Kings Point, is returning to sec OS finished officer. Before entering the Cadet Corps, Jim earned a B. A. degree from Morningside Col- lege, Sioux City. He distinguished himself with the Glee Club, as a Codet Officer, and as a member of the Mid- ships ' staff. His mid-western humor, keen wit, and high morale kept his association with others pleasant. WALTER THOMAS BOURDOT 247 Wood-Ridge, New Jersey Midships, Battalion Editor . . . One of our most willing and hard working section motes, he always soid, " I did it for my Pop " . He was also voted as the outstanding section athlete. Walter also attained one of the highest scholastic averages. He was a faithful section leader, and a martyr to the cause; thank goodness we knew our way to classes I RICHARD ELVIN CLAY 247 Louisville, Kentucky Cadet Officer . . . Dick, the " Louisville strong man " , will always be remembered by us as the man who went out for Cadet Officership with the purpose of giving his all for the Cadet Corps, the Academy, his Country and also 2200 liberty. Dick has left his indelible mark on Great Neck Society. In fact, we can go so far as to say he left it black and blue! JOSE SANTOS DAVILA 247 San Antonio, Texas Propeller Club . . . He was our foreign ambassador of good will from Texas. Friday night was a well marked occasion when " Little Joe " would set his hair by wearing his watch cap. It did wonders! At our frequent section parties, he was our shining light, with his good humor, never-ending stream of cash, and his varied assortment of women. He was known to hove a dote every Saturday. ri JOSEPH SAMUEL GRIMSLEY 247 Panama City, Florida " Old Joe " will always leave a memory of " shuddering out the winter " at Kings Point in our hearts. During his stay at Kings Point, there were two periods when we despaired of his ability to remain single before he obtained his license, but the girls lost, and he is leaving with his license — and is single. " Old Joe " ran the track 35 times in three weekends. CHARLES WALLACE HARROUN 247 Chicago, Illinois Cadet Officer — Boxing — Propeller Club . . . While at sea, he spent his time on a tanker, where he gained much knowledge that has been useful in his training. During his stay at Kings Point, he participated in Boxing and also was a Cadet Officer. He has demonstrated leadership qualities that are essential to a good officer and has a definite and well rounded future ahead of him. ROSENDAHL JERRY BUREN MAGRUDER, JR. 247 Chicago, Illinois Second Battalion Adjutant — Glee Club, Soloist — Propeller Club . . . " Somebody woke up Magruder! I want to ask him a question " , was a familiar statement heard in Ensign Fraser ' s radio class. Jerry led the section in regimental activities, rising to the Second Battalion Adjutoncy. On the field, his voice was one of forceful command, but softened to a smooth tenor as he joined the Cadet-Midshipman Glee Club, as soloist on nationwide broadcasts. HARRIS ELLSWORTH ROSENDAHL 247 LeMars, Iowa Regimental Staff, Communications Officer — Midships, Editor-in-Chief — Propeller Club . . . Harris Rosendahl started his Kings Point career modestly, but soon made his presence known by his achievements in both scholastic and extra-curricular work. As Editor-in-Chief of Midships II, he set a precedent for future Midships Editors, in producing a book difficult to match in quality. Mr. Rosendahl served as Communications Officer on the Regimental Staff for a period of six months, performing his duties with distinction. MORTIMER JOSEPH SULLIVAN 247 Cambridge, Massachusetts Mortimer Joseph Sullivan is the jolly, joking humorist of section 247. " Sully " , as his classmates call him, is prominently known as a true friend and guiding spirit of his section, and is always there to help a friend. He is built like the " Rock of Gibraltar " and is just as solid. No finer character or a more pleasing personality could be found in any other person. JACQUELIN MARSH BEGGS, JR. 248 Cleveland, Ohio Cadet Officer — Track — Cross Country . . . Codet-Midshipmon Beggs was born in the Health Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. A rather odd name for a hospital, but then Beggs is on odd Codet-Midshipmon. Maybe it ' s because he got an odd start in life. He is famous in the section for being late to muster, and for being a rabid union fan, even to the point of being radical. PETER FRANCIS BRAUN 248 Montville, New Jersey Windjammers . . . We shall all remember " Pete " for his quiet dignity, unfailing good humor, and his calm and unruffled temper. He never actually cored to start onything, but once started, he was always willing to lend a hand with brilliant ideas. His free time was spent on the Long Island Sound with the Windjammers, and he really enjoyed it. His greatest achievement, however, was when he became Coxswain of the " Mariner " . JOSEPH PAUL CONLIN 248 Los Angeles, California Rifle Company — Donee Bond . . . From deep in the heart of Los Angeles come the easy-going, congenial Maestro, the founder of the Cadet-Midshipmen Dance Bond. The music just flowed through his bones and when " beating the skins " he lived in a world all his own. In the Rifle Club he attained a rank of Platoon Commander, which is considered a real achievement. He is a sincere and de- pendable character. ixtixnm Beam JON STANLEY FERGUSON Rich Hill, Missouri Eighth Company Commander — Glee Club, Soloist . . . Father Jon Ferguson, the Deacon of the Second Battalion, ruled the Eighth Company with a cast aluminum hand — hard but gentle. He loved his food — so much in fact, that the platters ond bowls seldom passed the second seat at the mess table. Jon was a lover of music, an accomplished pianist, and the second John McCormack. I ROBERT BURKE GIBBS 248 Norfolk, Virginia When Bob first came here, he said only one thing, " It ' s going to be a long, cold winter " . For him it may not have been too hard, but it certainly was cold. He claimed that he is going to settle down on the equator. During his stay here he tried to keep out of trouble, which he did fairly well, and did not try to win the Scholastic Award. He didn ' t. WILLIAM WOOD HICKEY 248 Savannah, Georgio Track . . . Bill went out for the Varsity Track Team and made good on the team. He practiced day offer day, running the mile and practicing for the big meets. In the Inter-Bottolion meet Bill placed second, winning a silver medal. While Bill was at the Academy, he was interested in Broadway plays and concerts at Carnegie Hall. His favorite tune was Gershwin ' s " Rhapsody in Blue " . GEORGE HUNTER HICKMAN 248 Norfolk, Virginia Second Battolion Commander — Scholastic Award . . . Categorically most Cadet-Midshipmen are either athletes, students or leaders (the triple threat variety appearing only rarely). George appeored as a student and leader, but his athletic prowesses were confined to the " mumbo and samba " , which he performed admirably at the Battalion dances. Academics and rank came early to him and he bore them with on easy grace, but not without dogged perseverance. EDWARD McKENZIE HITCHCOCK 248 Pasadena, California Scholastic Award — Windjammers . . . When Cadet-Midshipman Hitchcock arrived at the Academy, being a true Coll- forion, he barely survived the hardships of the cold winter. He did manage, however, to obtain the star denoting scholastic attainment, which was the result of hard work. Edward McKenzie Hitchcock has been the " Shylock " of the section and has helped many of his section mates, as well as friends, to exist between pay days. ANDREW PAUL JOHNSON This fresh-water sailor from Michigan a 248 Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan ved at the Academy equipped with a disarming smile, and a naturally free and easy manner. If Andy con carry with him the some combination of good nature, sense of humor, sincerity, and engineering ability which guided him through these past years, he will be a welcome addition to any crew. HITCHCOCK ( .•Win 4 MICKELSON LEEROY HAROLD KADING HAROLD KADING 248 Milwau During his stay here, Cadet-Midshipman Kading perfected only one thing. He may be a very good ( it comes to griping, he is perfect. He can find something to gripe about when everybody else is satisfie( gripe, he is sick. For all his griping he porticipafed in many activities and tried to bring the standi to thp tnn Milwaukee, Wisconsin ■ipe to the top. He may be a very good engineer, but when i__j _i__: ' ■ - - -id. Vv ' hen he doesn ' t ng of his company HARRY AUSTIN MASON 248 Pine Hill, Alabama Where the loudest noise was being mode, with nothing sensible being said. Mason was usually present. ' To create a lively argument, he would make an issue of anything that could be stated. His greatest talent was writing letters, which he did at the rate of one for every ten hours ' labor (no overtime). According to him, he never memorized a thing during his entire stay at the Academy. RAYMOND JOHN McGLADE 248 San Francisco, California When the section first formed and everybody was finding " who was who, and from where " , notice was taken of a guy that had little control over whot made his face turn red. He came from, in his opinion, the only city that is in the only place. To keep up with the rigorous inspection that usually preceded mess, his shoes could be seen only through the use of dark glasses. THORWALD JULIUS MICKELSON 248 Currie, Minnesota " Indifferent to almost everything, save his career, " characterized " Mike " at Kings Point. Not only while at the Academy did he hove shipping on his sea-ideal mind, but even on liberty he went with an heir to the Isthmian Steamship Company. He is remembered for his congeniality and good-natured humor, as we shall remember that cigar which he so proudly smoked while he related his sea stories. ARTHUR LLOYD SELJOS 248 Somerville, Texas You con see that Art is a son of Texas the minute you look at him. While it would be unkind to say that his face re- sembled the flat expanse of the prairie, there was still a certam quality of the West about him. The best thing about Art was his sense of humor; it twisted many an awkward situation into a funny one. As an engineer, he ' ll be one of the best. JAMES ARDEN STASEK 248 Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts Dinghy Team, Manager — Rostrum, President — Windjam- mers — First Class Committee . . . Cadet-Midshipman Stasek is a well known figure about the Academy grounds, especially in the Regimental office. Mr. Stosek inspired, and worked hard and patiently at many Regimental activ- -i+i s. His quick thinking and hard driving will prove an asset in his future plans os on officer of the Merchant Marine. vxtm] 248 - 149 mammm -t te tmr 53 ELMER RAYMOND WOODARD, JR. 248 Coinjock, North Carolina Scholastic Award . . . " Chubby " is a goocJ, conscientious, and intelligent worker, who does his job rather well. He believed in strict temperance, not only in athletics but also when he was on liberty. He accomplished his aim in attaining a Scholastic Award. He will be a credit to the Academy and Cadet Corps, regardless of where he goes, or what he does in his later lite. ROBERT JOSEPH ANDERSON 253 Hammond, Indiana Propeller Club — Sound Off — Baseball . . . You don ' t hove to know " Bob " well to recognize him as a perfect gentleman and a man whose love for the highest ideals has developed in him the finest sort of o character. Of a serious nature, he readily turns philosopher in " bull sessions " . He sincerely enjoys and appreciates literature. Although acquainted with many of our feminine screen favorites, he is a one-woman man. Here ' s to Bob, o man well worth watching on his way to the top. GUILD PURSEL CONNER 253 Benton, Pennsylvania " Percy " was the most conscientious person we ' ve known. Everything he undertook, no matter how insignificant, was given his undivided attention. He hod a store of quaint expressions unparalleled in the history of the language. Little things made him jittery, big things find him cold and unmoved. Serious, thoughtful, and droll, he enjoyed a quiet con- versation with a friend more than any other thing. RICHARD DILLON FITZGIBBONS, JR. 253 St. Louis, Missouri Cadet Officer — Windjammers — First Class Committee . . . An intense interest in extra-curricular activities kept Dick on the run most of the time. His duties as a cadet officer kept him occupied for the rest of his hours. Knowing him as we do, we feel certain that Dick will do his best for Kings Point, and that his best will be more than satisfactory. Success is assured for a man who applies himself as he does. JAMES EDWARD GODSEY 253 Memphis, Tennessee Many of us have found much to kick about in a confined military life, but Jim is not of this cotegory. His quick smile has been a ready answer to all the various and sundry knocks and is the surest clue to his personality. He possesses a unique combination of generosity, loyalty, humor, good disposition and ability. These qualities are certain to carry him for in his career. WALTER DIRK MEYER, JR. 253 Portsmouth, Virginia Twelfth Company Commander — Rifle Company . . . Although Wally spent the post yeor here at the Academy, his head was always in the clouds because his hobby was flying. As a codet officer, he came up fast and ruled his company with an iron hand, but his men loved it. He was the only officer whose subordinates fought harder to keep him out of the pool than to put him in. FITZGIBBONS • ' " ir ALBERT DANIELS MORSE 253 Winchester, New Hampshire A New England aristocrat by birth, but not by inclination, Bert was nevertheless keenly but unostentotiously intelligent. He had a naturalness with men and on unaffected charm with women that brought him many friends and admirers at parties and dances. Considering his good nature and his capability, it seems hardly necessary to wish him luck. We know he ' ll hove it. LYNN CHARLES OSBORN 253 Dubuque, Iowa Windjammers . . . " Ozzy " came from Dubuque, the " world ' s finest city, " according to him. After his arrival here, his shipmates soon learned to avoid discussions on pipes, photography and orchestras since he was able to bilge them all on these, his favorite subjects. In a few years, when he decides that it is time to settle down to some serious work, he ' ll moke a top-notch deckmon. EDWARD ALBERT PELKEY 253 Los Angeles, California Rifle Company . . . " Monk " was always ready for a good chow, a good orgument, or just an ordinary bull session. He usually knew oil the dope about two weeks before anyone else and consequently very little missed him in his year at the Academy. He had an unlimited ability for getting things done; therefore, he should confirm our prediction of o long and pleasant career at sea. HOWARD L. PETERSON 253 Michigan City, Indiana Scholastic Award . . . Pete, the most conscientious fellow in the section, earned his Award early in his stay at the Academy. Although a firm believer in " business before pleasure, " he gave a great deal of attention to his feminine friends, who found his personality most charming. The Merchant Marine will undoubtedly benefit from his abilities and qualities of leadership. BRIAN HARTLEY PHILLIPS 253 Baltimore, Maryland Among the most valuable quolities that onyone can hove ore sincere friendliness and the ability to get along with others. This is especially true of the Merchant Marine. Here wos, then, a man admirably odopted to his vocation, for these were the keynotes of his personality. No matter how rough the going might be, Phil could be counted upon to come through in good shape. LOUIS RAYMOND ROLFES 253 New Orleans, Louisiana Seventh Company Commander — Rifle Company . . . Ask him where he ' s from and you ' ll get a terrific chamber of commerce line on New Orleans — America ' s Most Inter- esting City, Air Hub of the Americas. Regardless of what we think of that, we all love Lou, " the Legs " of the Regiment, His personality and good humor always drew friends to him and his future success is doubly assured by the foct that his father is a steamship, company offi- cial. What more could a guy want? 151 BmBiBIIVH EDWARD LEWIS SCOTT, JR. Los Angeles, California From the far-awoy shores of the Pacific, Ed came to us filled with a curious desire to learn about the great ships that fill his home port. He has never been known to re- fuse o blind dote, having implicit faith in his luck. Ed has the knack of making the best of things, a trait that should carry him far when he reaches the Merchant Marine. THEODORE CARL STROTER, JR. 253 Houston, Texos Codel Officer — Propeller Club ... A more considerate fellow than Ted couldn ' t be found. He hod a heart of gold and a sense of humor that was hard to beat. His room was always filled with friends swapping yarns. Studies never seriously worried him. In fact, many fellows received valuable aid from Ted as a teacher. In othletics he was not a vorsity man, but he was very active in battalion sports. He will moke a good officer; his men will like him. DAVID LANNING UPHAM 253 Mt. Vernon, Ohio Cadet Officer — Tin Fish Club — Sound-off ... On his questionnaire " Dare " said he was a typical struggling codet-mid- shipmon trying to get his license and commission, but yet oiwoys ready for his week-end liberty. We might odd that his talents are well suited to a career at sea, and those who serve with him will respect and appreciate him just as have his classmates at the Academy. HOWARD LEONARD WEBER 253 Detroit, Michigan Cadet Officer — Baseball . . . Success, to most, means pre-eminence in some particular field, but " Web " understood it to be an inward satisfoction resulting from work " well done " whether it was a personal accomplishment or the aiding of a less gifted classmate. This lad from Michigan starred in more than academics; he missed few social activities since first arriving at the Academy. With his congenial personality and copacity for work, he is for from ordinory yet not eccentric. ALFRED RUSSELL WINKLESS 253 Chicago, Illinois Cadet Officer — Scholastic Award — Rifle Company — Escort Committee . . . " Wink " was a fun loving sort of fellow and yet was always ready for o good argument. His constant good spirits and air of nonchalance belied the more profound personality that lay just beneath the surface. Versatile " Wink " moved easily through the trials and tribulations of a Cadet-Midshipman ' s life. WALTER YARBROUGH, Jr. 253 Albany, Georgia Walt ' s congenial disposition and enthusiastic outlook chased away the blues on Monday mornings. His ability to see the rosier side of a disagreeable situation and his absolute refusal to complain made him on ideal shipmate. Though he had energy plus, he never wasted it. A fine academic record gives evidence of this quality coupled with a gift of logic better defined as good horse sense. YARBROUGH J c BERNHARDT Herkimer, New York JOHN BEREZA 254 Baseball ... A joking, friendly fellow who likes to argue, John is frequently called " one whiff Berezo. " The fellows moke it o point not to discuss their home towns when John is around, because this " Herkimer Flash " outdoes them all. CHARLES MURRAY BERMAN 254 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania The " Nose " brings plenty of laughs to his section motes, especially the night he brushed his teeth with shaving cream, washed his mouth with shampoo, used hair tonic as aftershave lotion, and used oftershove lotion on his hair. Charles complained it was after taps and he couldn ' t see, but we believe he couldn ' t read the labels. RAYMOND WILLIAM BERNHARDT 254 Bremerton, Washington Battalion Staff — Dance Bond . . . Ray Bernhardt, commonly called " Bong " , hails from the wild and wooly West. " Bong ' s " pastime is shooting deer, and, at other times, shooting the breeze about the deer he shot. His impersonation of wild animals clommering over hill and dale is worthwhile entertainment. All in all, " Bong " is a serious boy, who knows when to display his sense of humor in just the right proportions. WILLIAM CAPUTO 254 Jackson Heights, New York Battalion Staff — Glee Club . . . William V. Caputo, better known as " Coppy " , is a driftee from 248 who joined our merry group lost spring. Before entering the Cadet Corps, he was employed as a draftsmen for a naval architect here in the Big City. " Cappy ' s " favorite pastimes are engineering and women. We ore informed that William V. is contem- plating wedding bells. JAMES " X " CHAMBERLIN 254 Salt Lake City, Utah Jim has hod few reol worries during his stay in the Academy; he could always do his work faster than anybody else in the room. His moior activities included eating, sleeping, and making others the butt of his puns. This lad from Utah was a fine fellow and a swell roommate. There is no doubt in our minds about his ability; only time remains between him and success. CHAMBERLIN CHARLES ALEX FAYARD 254 Ocean Springs, Mississippi Charlie was another one of those Southern Gentlemen who liked a good time and usually found it. Although his little bunk was frequently his preference, when the occasion arose to fight on uphill battle, he put forth the necessary effort in such a manner as to warrant praise and admiration. Laughingly Charlie asserted that a beau- tiful girl may yet come along to moke something of him! ■ • • ' ' tmt 254 - - )-fi4 . 153 mmmawmm JUmUIUlllHIMl _rX-r -r: w ir254- KENNETH EUGENE DUNCAN West Haven, Connecticut Cross Country Track — Coptoin Tomb ' s Trophy . . . Al- though the butt of many a jest, " Mama ' s " good natured and tolerant acceptance of same has mode him a popu- lar member of his section. He will always be regarded highly for expressing a steadying and mothering influ- ence on his friends and for his readiness in responding to any requests. Yes, that ' s " Momo, " and we feel sure he ' ll be o success. HAROLD JOSEPH HOMMEL 254 Cleveland, Ohio Propeller Club — Glee Club — Camera Club — Boxing — Baseball . . . Hal really deserves an article in " Field and Stream " for his outstanding angling ability. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, " Homeless Hommel " started his Academy life with a bang in the winter boxing tournament, and has proven himself a good man to have on your side. His willingness to help his buddies is good insurance for success, afloat or ashore. HARRY DONALD HONIG, JR. 254 Clayton, Missouri Rifle Company — Cheerleaders, Captain . . . Because of " Flat Boy ' s " happy-go-lucky antics, personality, and sense of humor, he was a good substitute for a three ring circus. The son of a ship ' s Chief Steward, his background is definitely salty and is evidenced by his love of the sea and of Diesel engines. Not without his serious moments, he proved his worth by the determined campaign he conducted in all his academic studies. HERBERT WILLIAM MARTIN 254 Milwaukee, Wisconsin Cadet Officer. . . Until one learns the reasons behind " Homeless Herbie ' s " wanderings, it would seem as though they were aimless, but on closer scrutiny it will be found that his constant visitations about the Academy ore motivated by a desire to spread cheer and good will. If his movements about the campus could spread such good will, it can be well imagined what he accomplished during liberty hours. JASPER MARION MARTIN 254 Stone Mountain, Georgia Basketball . . . The coll of the sea is heard for and wide, as evidenced by our good friend " Moke " Martin who heard it all the way down m Stone Mountain. A good basketball player, he was mighty proud of being part of the Kings Point Five. In reference to the latter, " Moke " was noted for his classic sound-off which went something like this: " Sir Cadet- Midshipman Martin, Forward " . SILAS BREWER MARTIN, JR. 254 Wetumka, Alabama Propeller Club — Rifle Company — Tenth Company Commander . . . " Si " is well known throughout Kings Point and sur- rounding territory. " S. B. " was once known as the oldest living M.P.O., but he rose rapidly till he bossed Tenth Com- pany. " Si " will be remembered longest for spending 30 months in the Cadet Corps and for investing that fine phrase " strictly mariteem " — and that he is! MARTIN, H. MARTIN, J. IPK • ' r f I ROBERT HAGEN MILLER 254 Evanston, Illinois Bob en|oyed life. There was nothing about him evidencing nervousness or haste. He lived to get around and meet nevj personalities. He had an easy going manner, yet possessed the ability to produce results when necessity beckoned. Always maintaining that " there ' s a solution for every problem, " he often caused annoyed shifting of feet by yelling, " Hand me my ' slipstick ' ! " MARIO PHILIP PIA 254 Kennetf Square, Pennsylvania Mario was a soft spoken block dirt former with a consuming possion for mushrooms. At the drop of a hat, " Badgolio " expounded in great detail on the virtues of mushroom culture. This wasn ' t his only desire, however. His interest in engineering was proven by his achievements here at the Academy. We feel certain hot he will continue his splendid work and be on excellent engineer. OLE ARNE JEROME RISENG 254 Grand Rapids, Michigan You know " Rise " by his grin because he always found the bright side of life and believed in smiling about it. People liked him for his sincerity and his cheerful, friendly disposition. The simple life was the life he chose, with plenty of time for his friends, olthough he never refused an opportunity for o whirl in society. His engineermg ability will moke him a success in his chosen profession. RICHARD FRANK ROBERTS 254 Washington, New Jersey Dick is a small town boy who does things in a big way. In all his dealings, his common sense and keen sense of values have stood him in good stead. Add to these on engaging personality and the happy faculty of winning friends easily and you have the qualities which insure the making of an outstonding officer and gentleman. RAYMOND FRANCIS ZALESKI 254 Bayonne, New Jersey Scholastic Award . . . Section 254 acquired " Pop " in a transfer from 248 at the end of the first quarter. He is known best for his hobitual dozing at musters, on chairs, tables or anything lending support; the waving of his hands when explaining a point in question and his ceaseless tinkering with his varied collection of tools. Obsessed with doodling, " Pop " would cover reams of paper. JAMES MELVIN CRANE 259 Lake, Mississippi Tin Fish Club — Basketball — Cadet Officer . . . Jim, one of the best liked men in 259, was very soft spoken and retiring. This was due to his never-foiling good humor, his ready smile, and h ' s gentle homespun philosophy. Despite his slender build, he will long be remembered on the athletic fields. His southern accent had quite a way with the ladies. tmt259 155 ■■■ ■■■■■■■■■■IIMMMIIMI -ft £S:nmr 259 JOSEPH PENN GIBSON DAVIS 259 Brooklyn, New York Penn was on easy-going fellow — good natured and smil- ing. He took his fun where he could find it with endless pranks and ceaseless banter. He had many loves, with whom he carried on an intense correspondence. It must have been his curly hair and his natural ability to soy the right thing. He was keenly interested in marine work and we are sure he will make a good officer. JOHN GRANT GANANN 259 Orange, Texas Polaris, Art Editor — Fencing Team . . . John came to us from way down by the Rio Grande, dragging much of his southern drawl with him. Nevertheless, he knew more about the sea and sailing than many of us who spent years in one vicmity of it. In spite of his friends ' best efforts, John never learned to appreciate the social side of life. STIG GORAN GAVELIN 259 Roseau, Minnesota Stig ' s love for laughter and his appreciation of seriousness soon turned all acquaintances into lasting friendships. Inher- ently precise, his clear analyses of involved problems hove often helped to explain difficult lessons to less opt classmates. Unlike most of us, Stig was able to cultivate his interests outside the Academy without neglecting athletics and academics. They were cute interests, too! WILLIAM LARRY GRAN 259 Youngstown, Ohio Bill left his core-free college days behind him and come to us from the fertile Ohio valley. Quiet and sincere, his greatest joy seemed tobe chosing fancy stamps and envelopes with post marks of strange places. A man of initiative and fore- sight, he was on ordent believer in the proverb: " A job worth doing is a job worth doing well. " ROSS LEE HARRIS, JR. 259 Columbus, Ohio Even through his swashbuckling good humor and spontaneous laughter, it was not difficult to see that Ross was a serious young man with a purpose. He never really was compelled to " fink " on his academic pursuits, but he frequently used his study hours for studying, and possessed the amoving and valuable gift of being able to concentrate on what he was doing. OLLIE " E " HAUPT, JR. 259 St. Louis, Missouri Polaris — Windjammers ... To have known a man like OIlie has been o privilege. His cheerful nature, his interest in any new activity, and his willingness to help a friend mode him on ideal classmate. OIlie. made his way through Kings Point without the troubles most of us faced. His brilliance, ability, and personality promise a full and successful career for him. A • • i!» ♦ •■•» » LEONIDAS AUGUSTUS JORDAN 259 Atlanta, Georgia Leon is a quiet unassuming chap, but anytime any of us needed a helping hand we could always count on him for any- thing within his power. Possessed of an enormous capacity to enjoy life and still get the most out of it, he has warmed the hearts of all who knew this sterling southern gentleman. Here ' s wishing him the success and happiness he deserves. SETH THOMAS PAYNE 259 Arlington, Virginia Never a dull moment! Such was life with Seth. His good nature and ever present desire to shoot the breeze made him an enjoyable companion. Tell him a story and he ' d tell you one better. Few and for between were the times Seth let anything get him down. Those who know him couldn ' t help liking him and looking forward to being shipmates with him again. JOHN FRANKLIN SHAAK 259 Manasquan, New Jersey Cadet Officer — Scholastic Award . . . Frank was the kind of fellow who wilted the instructors with his smile and made a cadet officer think twice before reporting him. Life at the Academy was not difficult for the " Senator. " Believing that sleep is the best cure for all troubles, he burned little midnight oil. Known for his quiet good humor, he was a welcome addition to any group. ERNEST MAYNARD SMITH, JR. 259 San Francisco, California Although he left California behind, Erney never fully emerged from the dense fog which usually hovers over his state. Since coming east, however, he has lost oil tendencies to just take things easy. He is one of those rare people who like to get things done today and forget there is a tomorrow. DUNCAN HARRY SOUTH 259 East Braintree, Massachusetts Harry came to the Academy from up New England way, bringing with him a typical New England drawl and a burning desire to get ahead at the Academy. He also brought along a heart interest, and stoutly maintained that women ore not all fickle. Determination and perseverance were his greatest virtues, coupled with his ever ready smile and cheerful dis- position. Here ' s wishing him a pleasant voyage. PHILLIP WAGNER 259 Jersey City, New Jersey Second Battalion Staff — Scholastic Award — Bailey Award — Polaris — Rostrum , . . Take one part Phi Beta Kappa, one part lawyer, one part instructor from Kings Point, match with a green eye shade and a set of ear plugs, and cover freely with textbooks. The result of the above recipe is Phil with a 4.0 overage. We ore sure Phil will become the President of a big shipping company. ttaitm 157 iimnHSHi mnpnm MBRB am] 260 JOSEPH ARTHUR WARD, JR. 259 Meriden, Connecticut- Cadet Officer . . . The bottom holt of Joe ' s body could be seen every Saturdoy morning at the Regimental Review. The top half was usually covered by the big flag he car- ried in the Color Guard. With his good noture, sense of humor, and unassuming way, Joe was always ready to join in any activity in which the section wos engaged at the time. LLEWELLYN FRANCIS ASPELUND 260 Brooklyn, New York Basketball . . . Words can hardly describe the true character of Cadet-Midshipman Aspelund, better known to all his friends as " Bunny. " The hours were few and far between when Bunny walked the Academy grounds without a smile on his face.

MATTHEW ALFRED BAILEY 260 Son Francisco, Californio Cadet Officer . . . " Pop " has been the only Cadet Officer from the compliment of section 260 to give his time and efforts to good order and discipline of the Regiment. Zealous in both work and play, he is a credit to the Academy. Although he is true to a cute female in Berkeley, he is quite the life of the party. HENRY GEDDES BOYTER, JR. 260 Charleston, South Carolina Propeller Club . . . Not everybody has had the privilege of rooming with " Honk " . I say privilege because I know; I ' m his room-mate. Being a Southerner from Charleston, you ' d expect to find the Confederate flag hanging somewhere in the room. It ' s not, although he is still 100% for the South. Hank ' s ambition isn ' t just to be an engineer, but to be one of the best. ROY ELDON BUDDHU 260 Edwardsville, Illinois Propeller Club . . . " Pop " really got around and lived in almost every room in the battalion. His pride ond joy were his shoes, which were kept highly polished. He spent most of his free time accumulating the ever famous ponies. At first we took his arguments seriously, but now we just humor him. He hod a T-2, which was a miracle ship, and the stories that come forth were unbelievable. WILLIAM JOHN CAMPBELL 260 Arlington, Virginia Propeller Club . . . Let it never be said that a person from Virginia has a Southern drawl. This thin, wiry haired lad has brought to this Academy a language which has not been accepted in any part of the United States except Virginia. His expressions will go down in history as the section disburses to carry his ethical sayings near and far. y ) i ll . i EDMUND RICHARD CORKERY 260 Binghamton, New York Boxing ... Ed, born of Irish parents in the land of the shamrocks and olue-eyed colleens, can be proud of the out- standing record he has made in the field of sports at this Academy.

CHARLES HERBERT FOX 260 Peoria, Illinois Football — Baseball . . . " Little Herby " has been extremely active in several of the Academy sports, and has been quite successful in all of the events, especially anything requiring the advantage of a little surplus weight.

Ship- mates will find in him an interesting companion and a real friend. vho knows how to appreciate the lighter side of life, or when it came to books, Fred RODERICK JASON GRADER 260 Blue Island, Illinois Track . . . Short, dork, quiet, but quite a ladies man, Rody traveled for and wide. If you wont any information concerning where to go and how to get there on Long Island just ask him. Even though he shaved every morning his five o ' clock shadow showed up about noon. Quiet as he may be, he usually had the right thing to say at the right time. WENDELL EDMUND KIBLER 260 LeRoy, New York Propeller Club . . . Once started, he ' s a perpetual motion of jokes — " I ' ve got a million of ' em " — famous words made even more famous by him. His noted phrase, " Got a cigarette? " in addition to " Got a match " hove helped deplete many a pack. Studious and untiring in his efforts to master steam engineering, he ' s a noted expert on Thermodynamics. He soiled the Libertys. ALOIS ALOYSIUS KLEIN 260 South Belmar, New Jersey Basketball . . . " OIlie " is small in stature, but his good points overcome this physical trait. He was one of the momstays on our Sixth Company basketball team. Klein always has a smile on his face and always has something to say to make you laugh. ' • ' ' tmr26 EDWARD ADAM KULYK 260 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Scholastic Award — Propeller Club ... A more likeable guy has never walked through the gates of the Academy; there is never a dull moment while in the company of Ed.

This resulted in the necessity of ordering a new pump. DANIEL O ' CONNELL, Jr. 260 Atlanta, Georgia Dan, a rambling wreck from Georgia, brought to the Academy a disposition closely akin to the greatly acclaimed sun- shine of his home state.

With his initiative and perseverance, he is bound to win. ROBERT EMMETT O ' KIEFFE 260 Minneapolis, Minnesota Polaris — Sound-Off, News Editor — Glee Club . . . Bob " The Voice " O ' Kieffe spearheaded his section ' s extra-curricular activities by joining the Sound-Off staff m the early days of his advonced training. He is best known for his vocal achieve- ments, and as a member of the Glee Club Bob played an admirable part in the recognition the Academy obtained through the Club. EDWARD OLIVER ORTH, JR. 260 Milwaukee, Wisconsin Propeller Club. . . Ed ' s main discontention was that it was too darn cold, and it was difficult to do calisthenics with a mockinaw on. Outside of that he enjoyed the rigid Academy life, especially from 1300 Saturday to 1900 Sunday. Ed was on accomplished dancer and was well liked for his accommodating personality, gracious humor, and unselfish attitude. Don ' t freeze to death, Ed. ARTHUR HERBERT PONT 260 Camden, New Jersey Propeller Club — Dance Committee — Cadet Officer . . . When in doubt in diesel class they always soy, " Where is Pont? " Quite a character in his seamanlike way, he will standby to help in any possible situation. Where food is concerned, he is sure to be present.

Here is a boy from Alabama who thought the Mason-Dixon Line was a Connecticut railroad until he come to the Academy.

He was not the quietest person in the world, but a very likeable guy. WALTER THOMSON 260 Detroit, Michigan Propellor Club — Glee Club . . . " Tombstone " Thomson is a human interest story in himself, typifying modern youth at its best.

Defmitely decided on on engineering coreer. Tommy relentlessly pounds the books as he ascends the ladder of success. STANLEY JOHN TOMASZEWICZ 260 Bayonne, New Jersey Scholastic Award — Propeller Club . . . His name is almost as easy to pronounce as the " Irish " names of Notre Dame ' s squad. He has mastered all the barriers that stop a Cadet-Midshipman from going on liberty, and his gilt tongue has helped him talk his way out of quite a few demerits. " Energy is something to be conserved, " and, believe me, " Tom " didn ' t waste it. RICHARD DEXTER BAKER, JR. 265 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Softball — Basketball . . . Dexter was a product of two classes, and he won many friends in both. These friends knew him for his easygoing disposition. Very few ever heard that laugh silenced by things that would cause others to gripe, and his hearty guffaw amused many a movie audience. In his more peaceful moments he liked to dream about a round-the-world cruise in a small boot, or a cabin in the mountains. ROCLIFFE MARVIN BLAKEMAN 265 Takoma Park, Maryland Marvin come to Kings Point with a mellow baritone voice, contagious smile, and an excellent scholastic record behind him.

Gene delighted in meeting people and making contacts, and carried on a huge correspondence, as evidenced by the daily stock of mail.

There is hardly any need to wish success to such a grand fellow. tm] 265 DAVID PORTER EDWARDS 265 San Francisco, California Hailing from Sunny Colifornia, " Rosie ' s " name hints not only of his home state, but also of his sunny disposition.

CLARKE TODD GOETHEL 265 Grand Rapids, Michigan Windjammers . . . Clarke Goethel maintained a 3.4 overage throughout the year and never faced any opposition in securing top honors in the section.

He was meticulously groomed and received frequent commendations on his personal appearance. JACK BRUCE GUDRITZ 265 Saginaw, Michigan Jock is one of those modest, unassuming lads who did a lot of thinking and little talking. Perhaps his most outstanding characteri stic was tenacity.

Endowed with a pleasant personality and a capacity for making friends, he should hove a fine career. WILLIAM EMIL KUEHN 265 East St. Louis, Illinois Bill come to the Cadet Corps offer a fling at selling as a traveling salesman. He ' s from East St. Louis, Illinois, where they mount the office buildings on floats, so thot when the flood waters arrive, all they need to do is throw out the anchor. This must hove brought the desire " to go to sea " upon " Our Bill. " SUMMERFIELD THOMPSON JERRY WARREN MITCHELL 265 Mab(on, Washingt-on Jerry would back his native Washington, where " women are women, and the snow piles twenty feet deep, " against the rest of the universe any time. He comes from the average class of Cadet-Midshipmen that hit the books — very seldom; get 4.0 — occasionally, and sleep — continuously. Yet beneath this exterior, there is a wealth of latent pep; his habitual mad dashes to formation bear witness. JOHN MANSEL NEWMARKER 265 Juneau, Alaska You take o surplus of energy which con be utilized in all thoughts and actions; mix a large portion of affability, good- naturedness, and ability and you hove just concocted one good roommate such as Johnny. His attention to detail and duty will moke him on outstanding officer, and hii driving perseverance will give him the happiness of many friends and success in his chosen field. JACK NORBERT SUMMERFIELD 265 Portland, Oregon Jack is o human being in every sense of the word.

GORDON CURTIS THOMPSON 265 Long Beach, California From the fogs of California, Curt brought his talents, his " scvoir foire, " and his curly hair to Kings Point.

WILLIAM ROSS ZAGELMEIER 265 Newberry, Michigan When Bill left Newberry to become a Cadet-Midshipman, he brought with him a multitude of vibrant ideas, an inexhaust- able store of energy, and a gift for good fellowship.

DONALD WOODWORTH BOGART 266 Shavertown, Pennsylvania Swimming Team, Manager . . . Don is a very congenial fellow whose fine character and generosity have won him many friends.

His three years training and experience as a machinist, before coming to the Cadet Corps, hove been of invaluable help to him, as well as to his section mates. JULIUS CHARLES BOSAKOWSKI 266 Staten Island, New York " Bos " is one of our ablest students. He sits with his feet on the desk, polished by someone else, smokes his pipe, looks at " Osborne " and can explain a piece of machinery pictured there better than Osborne. If he follows the sea, as he says he will, he ' ll become one of the better Chief Engineers in our Merchant Marine. GEORGE LESLIE CLINE 266 Wilkinsburg, Pennsylxania George is a clean-cut, loyal, and courteous shipmate. He hails from the steel industrial center of the world.

" I BOSAKOWSK FRANK FARNUNG 266 East Orange, New Jersey A local boy, Frank comes from a long line of searforing ancestors. As a matter of fact he is quite a " salt " himself, and is capable of spinning some pretty tall yarns about the proverbial four corners of the years. One of the more optimistic and likeable fellows we ' ve yet to encounter, the best wishes of his section will go with him to sea. LEONIDAS STEPHEN GILL, JR. 266 Oxford, North Carolina The " Old Man " was the only man in the section who was able to catch up on his sleep.

He was one of those rare personalities that completed his course without one demerit. ARTHUR JOHN GORMLEY 266 College Point, New York Second Bottalion Commander — Rifle Company — Dance Committee . . . Artie was second Battalion Commander for three and one-half months, and for that period we were " Gormotized " . But it wasn ' t as bod as all that, for there were light moments; just ask the Cadet Officer who failed to salute the Admiral. A real person, a devoted, herd worker, a good Battalion Commander, a fine leader, he deserves a " well done " . JAMES FREDERICK GROFF 266 Ashland, Ohio Eleventh Company Commander — Scholastic Award ... Jim is the type of man who endeavors to do his utmost to come out on top in any undertaking, and usually does. This is shown by his fine record at the Academy.

" Skippy " is one of those guys everyone con get along with. There was never a dull moment when Freddy was around. His whole life seems to have been built on wit and humor.

ANGELO RAFFAELE MANCUSI 266 Brooklyn, New York Propeller Club — Transportation Committee . . . Upon completion of his basic training, " Rafe " shipped out on one of those remarkable new T-2 tankers.

His success as a Marine Engineer is assured. WILLIAM SCHNEIDER 266 Linden, New Jersey Cadet Officer — Glee Club . . .Very soon after Bill ' s arrival, he joined the ranks of those who weor gold.

A former salesman. Bill brought many new slants along with him. JACK ROBERT SMITH 266 Port Arthur, Texos Track . . .The best reason we could ever offer for Smitty ' s profuse conversation was that Westerners in general, and Texans in particular, are very outspoken people. We mean no offense, however, since he was always a most congenial fellow. Aside from his athletic activities, and his tall tales of college and the seo, he managed to devote enough time to academic work to maintain a 3.4 average. South Orange, New Jersey GEORGE HENRY BECKER, Jr. 271 Cadet Officer . . . George was the shy, quiet type who would go to any extremes to aid any of his section mates. Women are his forte. Becker knew and dragged them all. Academics never gave him any grey hairs; they were more or less an after-thought. With his abilities, he won ' t hove much trouble getting up the mythical but ordinarily steep ladder of success. RICHARD EUGENE BENNETT 271 Arlington, Texas Fencing Club — Twelfth Company Towing Team, Coxswain . . . This " Lone Star " sailor decided to disprove the popular theory that all Texans are bowlegged cowboys; therefore h; entered the Cadet Corps ond set out to become a bow- legged sea Captain.

Energetic Bill, era in hond and a pipe in his mouth, will long be a pleasant memory. He was o mild, amiable fellow until ment started.

JAMES RICHARD EVERETT, Jr. 271 Nashua, New Hampshire uey Seventh Company Commander — Propeller Club . . . Everett wos one of the better known Cadet Officers. The Company of which he was Commander was one of the best spirited in the Regiment. On week-end liberties he relaxed and let his hair down. On Monday mornings he was back in his style . . . yelling at Cadet-Midshipmen. He was an instigator in section activities and solving shipmates ' problems. JEFFIE LEE FLOWERS 271 Selma, Alabama Football ... A good football ployer with a good personality is just about oil that anyone could ask for; that was Jeffie.

He attended Auburn College in his native Alabama where he picked up a good bit of scholastic and athletic experience before coming to Kings Point. PAUL EVERSON HANES JR. 271 HunHngton, West Virginia An integral sign, a brood grin, and words of wisdom, oil mixed together produce this smiling son of West Virginia.

No matter what career Paul chooses, he will prove himself worthy. HUYSENTRUYT JOSEPH EMIL HUYSENTRUYT 271 Detroit, Michigan Polaris, Editorial Staff — Windjammers . . . Joe entered the Academy directly from high school. How a Cadet- Midshipman could sleep through all classes and still knock off those 4.0 ' s is still a puzzle to his mates. " The Leaning Tower of Pisa " will always be remembered for his conscientious attitude as a section leader. His hon- esty, loyalty, and sincerity will atways be remembered by all. tm i 27 f n EDWARD LYNCH 271 Jackson Heights, New York Cadet Officer . . . Here ' s a " word ' s-eye view " of Ed with his cheerful smile and oll-American personality. Very idealistic and conscientious, he always expected the best of people.

RICHARD LOUIS OLSEN 271 Sopeioe Island, Georgia Dick was the one who always tried to interpret the meaning of the vague statements made by his classmates, and assist the instructor in clarifying any shady meanings in our studies.

Here ' s to Dick, a man well worth watching on his woy to the top. ALVAN MERRILL PERCELAY 271 Pawtucket, Rhode Island Cadet Officer . . . " Perce " as we found him was stubborn without being obstinate and intelligent without having oquir- ed its smuggness. He possessed a sense of humor, and what is especially important, it wos genuinely original. Perhaps it was the burning fire of his ambition pushing him on, because he has the drive of a zealit. He will be a valuable asset to the Merchant Marine. WILLIAM JOSEPH RICHARDS 271 Jersey City, New Jersey Camera Club — Propeller Club . . . Bill is on all-around good fellow. Anytime you meet him, you will be greeted by his winning smile and carefree ways. He heartily agrees that the camera and the radio are two of the world ' s greatest Inventions. Swimming is his favorite sport and he mokes use of his spare time in either pool, both winter ond summer. VICTOR NORMAN SILBERSTEIN 271 St. Louis, Missouri Rostrum . . . The day we entered we christened him " Lieber " . When we reported to Patten Hospital for physicals, the Doctors deliberated for hours as whether or not he was alive because of his lack of blood. His cooperation with the section was excellent and his contributions were numerous. We wish him better luck in rising in the morning than he experienced at the Academy. SILBERSTEIN ± ;fK WILKERSON HAROLD JAMES SMITH 271 Bronx, New York Company Commander . . . When this young Casanova breezed into port, we saw that the call of the seo gave us top material for an officer and a gentleman. Harry ' s diversified philosophy was welcomed in any conversation. Add to this a likeable nature, sportsmanship, abundant energy, and his nautical abilities, and you have the fine impressions that he mokes on those he meets. CHARLES EUGENE STEPHENS 271 Stoten Island, New York Dance Band — Propeller Club . . . " Chill " , the " Staten Island Hill Billy " , and his guitar, helped give 271 the reputation of the " singingest " section at the Academy.

He had to be entertained as well aside from entertaining others and that is where women enter the picture. CLYDE ROBERT WATERS 271 Highland Park, Michigan Scholastic Star . . . Overjoyed when he received his orders to report to the Academy, Clyde " mode no bones " about showing his happiness in being here. The coveted star which he earned is sufficient proof of his academic efforts. Life around him was never devoid of excitement due to his trace of pyromania and symptoms of absentmindedness. He will be a splendid shipmate wherever he goes. JAMES GLENN WILKERSON 271 Bellerose, New York La Crosse — Rowing Team ... If Jim was seen in the library, he was not looking for books. He wanted a cigarette, a crossword puzzle, a red-hot rumor, or a pencil. Jim ( " let ' s go out and get o steak " ) Wilkerson was a good swimmer and an excellent verbal La Crosse player. He will always be remembered for his good-heartedness, honesty, and, a- bove oil, that pleasant smile he displayed.

BILLY LEO CODAY 272 Locust Grove, Oklahoma " Wild Bill " was known about these parts as " Oklohomo ' s Two Gun Kid. " He was always humming, olw.oys broke, and alwoys on the blunt end of o joke. Above oil though, he wjs always willing to lend his able assistance wherever he thought there was the slightest chance of helping one of his section-motes. " The Dreamer " was, indeed, o fine man. JOHN THOMAS COOKE 272 Boonton, New Jersey Philosophers Club . . . Like most philosophers, John was a wee bit forgetful at times. As a matter of foct, we can re- call one time when he wos apparently so preoccupied with another dimension that he mustered for breokfost without a tie. The poor MPO, mistaking his forgetfulness for individualism, followed on obvious and familiar tradition, ond John ' s absent-mindedness wos well on the way to being cured. MARTIN EDGAR DOYLE 272 Lynn, Massachusetts Track — Rifle Company — Propeller Club — Philosophers Club . . . " Toke life as it comes " was Marty ' s philosophy of liv- ing. He loves to laugh and could usually be found doing so. While he was capable of porticipating in most athletics, basketball and footboll were his favorites. We will remember him os the guy with the off-shaped hot and witty sayings, accompanied by an unforgetoble Irish grin. GEORGE DONALD ESSIG 272 Los Angeles, California Rifle Company — Camera Club — Propeller Club — Radio Club, Vice-President . . . One of the " salty " members of 272, was " Our George.

The electrical laboratory wos his field and he could often be seen amidst cables, sparks and equipment, feeling quite at home. I ROBERT CARL FRODIGH 272 Worcester, Massachusetts Propeller Club — Philosophy Club . . . During the course of the year, there were many different pronunciations of Bob ' s name. He was a singular personolity, ever ready with his Socratic conversation. He made numerous friends upon his arrival and we sincerely believe that he will meet with much success in his voyage on the ocean of life. ROBERT ROLLIN HAINES 272 Track . . . V e found " Heine " to be gifted with an unusual Moline, Illinois Track . . . V e found " Heine " to be gifted with an unusually quick wit and the ability to be a very cheerful buddy. He upheld the Kings Point sports tradition as a member of the track team, and also became known as an expert drafts- man. However, these were only minor accomplishments for Bob. We feel certain that he will go far in the field of ne engineering CHARLES ALVIN HANKIN Cadet Officer — Midships . . of Pennsylvania. Like so m 272 Franklin, Pennsylvania . . " Honk " symbolized the character which can be wrought only in the steel producing region ot Pennsylvania. Like so many lads from the hinterland, he had a great desire to go to the sea. While at Kings Point he was a strong advocate of fair play and, above all, the greatness of Diesel Power for ship propulsion. He was o mem- ber of the Advertising Staff of Midships. JOSEPH LEE KINKEAD 272 Bedford, Indiana Cadet Officer — Midships, Advertising Manager — Dance Band, Director — Propeller Club . . . We will always remember Joe as " Baa, the Goat Tender. " He courageously executed his duties, despite Neptune ' s horns. Our salutes, too, for reorganizing the Cadet-Midshipmen Dance Bond and also for work soliciting the funds as Advertising Manager of Mid- ships. May his good work at the Academy be only the foundation for what owoits him. CAMPBELL BROWN LANIER, Jr. 272 West Point, Georgia C. B. was a true son of the South who hod many occasions to honorably defend his native land when it was bitterly and unjustly attacked. His accent and " so-different " manner of expression were often the cause of joyful moments for the section. There is no doubt in our minds when we say that " Georgio " will share the successes being enjoyed by the other thousands of Kings Point Alumni. EUGENE COLLAMER MANTER 272 Springville, New York Dance Band . . . Gene and his trumpet were part of our section. We saw little of him because most of his time has been spent with the Cadet-Midshipmen Band. We all know he will climb high on the ladder to success. His connection with the Maritime Service before entering the Cadet Corps, and his creditable record in engineering will prove to be great assets in his future plans as an Officer of the Merchant Marine. ' • ttm r T Z JOHN GEORGE MARINCAS 272 Trenton, New Jersey Rifle Company — Philosophers Club ... A better section mote and truer friend than " J. G. " would be hard to find. Having been fortunate to serve an apprenticeship in the heat treatment of metals, he was a fountain of informa- tion concerning metallurgy and machine shop practices. Although not a musician, he loved the classics and devot- ed his moments of leisure to listening to the masterpieces. He is the proud possessor of a " demeritless " record. _ ' II Mcdonald FRANK WILLIAM McDONALD 272 Detroit, Michigan Propeller Club . . . " Mac " was always good for a sometimes vitally needed laugh. Being a graduate of the famous Ford Trade School, he was quicker than most to solve the mysteries of Engineering. On numerous occasions he was the source of help to some of us who were slower. Much f his free time was devoted to assisting the instructors in their unending efforts to better the laboratories. CHARLES SELDEN McNEER 272 Williamson, West Virginia Rifle Company . . . Charles wos noted for his independent and uninhibited manner of expressing himself. His frank- ness won him the respect of not only the section but many others. Though he was very sincere and straightforward, the uninitiated hod to be aware of his subtle sense of dry humor. We are sure he will go through life being well liked. STANLEY JOHN PETERSON 272 Lake Crystal, Minnesota Basketball — Propeller Club — Christian Servicemen ' s League . . . Stan made the Varsity Basketball Squad, and took part in many other athletic programs. He and his twin brother. Sterling, have added much confusion to their stay at the Academy, and to this day, we have difficulty in telling which is Stanley or Sterling. Stanley is a hard and conscientious worker and will undoubtedly make a fine officer. STERLING DAVID PETERSON 272 Lake Crystal, Minnesota Basketball — Rifle Company . . . " Pete " as he was known to most of the guys, is a full time historian on all sports. While at the Academy, he was active in basketball and Intramural sports. Two-hour period in Mechanical Drawing was his worry and grief. Give Pete a basketball, a " T2 " tanker, and a piece of Minnesota, and you ' ll have a " happy guy. " VINCENT JOSEPH ROSSITTO 272 New Britain, Connecticut Midships, Circulation Staff — Propeller Club . . . They say the greatest men come in the lost part of the alphabet, i. e. Washington, Roosevelt. " Rosy " is not president yet, but he has high ideals. He is an interested engineer and hopes to follow this phase of science for his life ' s work. A popular member of the section, he is remembered for his renditions of " After You ' re Gone! " }i PETERSON, S. J. PETERSON, S. D. m- f ■••mui JOHN EDWARD SULLIVAN 272 Memphis, Tennessee Rifle Company — Propeller Club . . . Jock " E " (for Eager) Sullivan started his Maritime career as a crew member on the Diesel towboats operating out of his native city of Memphis. At basic school he was quiet and unassuming, but since his sea duty, Jack no longer hesitates to assert himself. Physically and mentally coordinated, he has done well in scholas- tics and athletics. NICK THOMAS 272 Cedar Rapids, Iowa Rifle Company — Glee Club — Propeller Club — Philosophers Club . . . Nick is a husky fellow hailing from Iowa. Among his likeable qualities are his hearty laugh, and his ability to sing, which was brought forth in the showerroom quartet. He has great potentialities as a marine engineer, and is the kind of guy we are all proud to claim as a friend and fel- low Codet-Midshipmon. JOSEPH M. THOMPSON 272 Flora, Illinois Sixth Company Commander — Scholastic Award — Rifle Company — Propeller Club — Philosophers Club . . . Joe Thomp- son, wearing the " Sailor Blues " of the USMS, was washed up on the Gulf Coast, doorstep of the Cadet Corps, in the spring of ' 44. He gained fame as a Company Commander and a brilliant student. Argumentative, with a searching mind and a love of laughter, his course should be chartered for success. FRANK WILLIAM WENTINK 272 Passaic, New Jersey Scholastic Award — Rifle Company — Propeller Club . . . Frank, as a student, was the instructor ' s ideal. He was through- out the academic year, top man of the class, and as a Codet-Midshipmon and classmate, one could never find o mor sincere friend, ready and willing to help. He will beyond a doubt, make an outstanding officer and gentleman, a man to whom we can point with pride. MITCHELL STANLEY WOZNIAK 272 Wilbrohom, Massachusetts Regimental Staff — Scholastic Award — Camera Club — Philosopher ' s Club . . . His career as a mechanical designer pro- vided Mitch with good background for the study of Marine Engineering at the Academy. Possessed of an inventive mind, there is no telling what new designs he may evolve. This quolity, however, does not detract from his personable character and amiable nature which make him such a desirable friend. HENRY HARRISON ARTHUR 277 New York City, N. Y. Henry came to us from New York, embroidered with much of its restless activity, but little of its noise. His tireless effort and quiet efficiency won the esteem of those with whom he worked. He has a greeting for everyone, but only a small group of intimates can fully appreciate his essentially undemonstrative friendliness. Whether the mission be work or play, Henry will always be a welcome addition to any group. ■ • • " tm - " -tm : -i FRANK LOOMIS BARTAK 277 Maple Heishts, Ohio A local boy, Frank comes from a long line of seaforing ancestors. As a matter of fact he is quite a " salt " himself, and is capable of spinning some pretty tall yarns about the proverbial four corners of the years. One of the more optimistic and likeable fellows we ' ve yet to encounter, the best wishes of his section will go with him to sea. EVERETT CHARLES BELL 277 Stamford, Connecticut Propeller Club . . . Quiet and persistent with a mind of his own, Everett was quick in action and violent in reaction. Few of us ore like Everett who has the enviable knack of being able to acquire friends effortlessly and whose ability and earnestness command attention and respect. His sincere willingness to befriend others, his keen sense of humor and seriousness as the occasion demanded will never be forgotten. ARTHUR CYRIL BOWBEER 277 Brooklyn, New York Scholastic Award — Polaris — Wrestling . . . We think Art spent his sea time on a soiling vessel in the North Atlantic, but he claims it was a cargo ship. He took a lively interest in all that occurred at the Academy. He was often found brousing through the library, or returning from wrestling practice. He was loyal to the boys and encouraged them to do their best. I THOMAS JOHN CALNAN, JR. 277 Ailentown, Pennsyivonio Rifle Company . . . Tom was a good natured, quiet fellow whose only ambition was to graduate " cum loude. " The fact that he succeeded in this pays due tribute to the long hours of patient study that he devoted to the cause. When not " Boning Up " Tom was to be seen drilling with the Rifle Company, of which he was a very enthusiastic member. WILLIAM CHARLES GOTH 277 Alhambra, California Football . . . Bill hails from the great city of Alhambra, and if you don ' t think it ' s a great little city, just ask him. Although never odmitting it. Bill had no trouble with academics, ending each semester with a satisfying overage. A connoisseur of the finer things of life. Bill eventually reached the conclusion that women ore sometimes confusing. EUGENE CHARLES GRAVELLE 277 Orlond, California Transportation Committee . . . Gene was a farmer boy who went to sea. Born in the fertile country of Northern Cali- fornia, our red headed young hero spent his boyhood days playing in the plowed fields and rolling hills of that great state. His sincere willingness to befriend others, his keen sense of humor and seriousness, as the occasion demanded, will never be forgotten. ROBERT TIMOTHY GRIFFIN 277 Brooklyn, New York Sound Off — Rifle Company — Windjammers — Wrestling — Track — Swimming . . , When Bob left Brooklyn to become a Cadet-Midshipman, he brought with him a multitude of vibrant ideas, an inexhaustible store of energy, and a gift for good fellowship. He spent the usual normal life at the Academy having his full shore of extra-curricular activities. He claims that some of his happiest hours at Kings Point were spent sailing on Long Island Sound. PAUL VINCENT HARLESS 277 San Francisco, California Bosketball — Baseball . . . " Pee Vee " Horless hails from Son Froncisco, where he graduated from the University of San Francisco with a degree in Economics. After graduation he joined the United States Marine Corps and was sent to Officer ' s Candidate School at Quantico, Virginia. He resigned from the Marine Corps and entered the Cadet Corps. We can say in closing — " Never has one man come so far and gotten so much. " STANLEY MARCH LISTER 277 Washington, D. C. Polaris — Rifle Compony . . . Stan was one of the most amiable fellows in the entire section. He was noted for his hos- pitality, his good-natured personality, and his " corny " jokes, always mellowed with age and never told correctly. All in all, he was a friend worth having, and one who will be greatly missed. ALBERT CHESTER LOWE 277 P asadena, California Scholastic Award — Company Commander . . . Al could be counted upon to come through with " flying colors " when- ever the going became tough. With his determination it is easy to predict success. With his marvelous personality and quest for knowledge, we feel that Al will take his sea career in stride and attain great success. LESLIE EDWARD MORROW 277 Modesto, California Scholastic Award — Windjammers — Rifle Company . . . Les joined the Cadet Corps bock in the early months of 1944. He took his basic training at San Mateo, right in his own bock yard, and then spent his sea time scouring the far reaches of the Pacific. Here at Kings Point he was active in a number of clubs and organizations, and topped off his career by winning a Scholostic Star. DOUGLAS NEWELL NELSON 277 Jennings Lodge, Oregon Tennis — Football — Boxing . . . Doug hod always led an outdoor life and it seemed only natural that he should be drown to the sea. His youth was spent fishing, hunt- ing, and swimming in his native state, where he de- veloped his liking for the rugged life. Here at Kings Point he wos active in almost every sport. All signs point to a long and successful career in the Merchant Marine. ' •mm 175 - ' • ' tmi£7 WILLIAM KEITH PHILLIPS 277 Boonville, Indiana Football — Basketball — Track . . . Bill was one of the fastest men ever to run for Kings Point. A member of the track team, he was considered to be among the fin- est sprinters on the east coast. In the intromurals he won many events while establishing four new Academy records. Although hampered by many injuries, Bill nevertheless mode o fine showing in both football and basketball. JACK ROSS 277 Anadarko, Oklahoma Football Manager ... It is not hard to imagine in fifty years Jock a successful man with a pipe and a newspaper, enjoying the simple pleosures of life. He overcame all the difficulties of academic and military life to realize his life-long ambition of becoming an officer and a graduate of the Academy. He was on excellent roommate and was actively engaged in many extra-curricular functions. JOSEPH GRAHAM RUTLEDGE, III 277 Aurora, North Carolina Battalion Adjutant . . . Joe was a southerner. He liked the warm climate and the hot sun, so naturally, when he shipped out, he spent all his time on the North Atlantic. By the time our tor heel finished his sea time he had ice water in his veins and icicles on his nose. Perhaps that is why he was such a hard man as Second Battalion Adjutant. WILLIAM JOHN SKELLY 277 Toledo, Ohio Cadet Officer — Midships — Glee Club — Dance Bond . . . William Shelly enjoyed Kings Point and Kings Point enjoyed him, for " Skell " is one of those good natured Irishmen who takes life as it comes and enjoys it to the utmost. Al- though active socially, Bill still managed to keep his head above the foam academically. CHARLES JAMES WISE 277 Cleveland, Ohio Football — Baseball . . . Charles is a very sincere and amiable person. His good manners, taste, and friendly attitude won our friendship. An abundance of knowledge concerning ships was one of his more academic assets. The week- ends when he was not dragging were divided between movies and sleeping; with a marked preference shown to the latter. Charles has a sense of humor and has never been known to refuse a joke. A natural ability, pleasant personality, brood smile, and a multitude of friends all combine to moke Charles a 4.0 classmote. GEORGE FREDERICK ARNOLD 277 San Francisco, California Rifle Company — Softball Team . . . George was one of the most amiable chaps in the entire section. He had the unbelievable reputation of never getting into trouble with anyone. We believe that he will be among the best Deck Officers, for he has as much " know-how " as anyone. A typical Kings Pointer, he has been a trustworthy and loyal friend. P O it- ■• ( t LELAND BLUCHER BAKER 278 Scottsburg, Indiana Midships ... To have known a man as he has been a privilege. His cheerful nature, his interest in any new activity, and his willingness to help a friend, mode him an ideal classmate. Lee mode his way through Kings Point without the troubles most of us were forced to face. His brilliance, ability, and personality promise a full and successful career for him. HAROLD BOYCE BARRETT 278 Minden, Louisiana Rifle Compony . . . " Buddy " seemed to be proud of the fact that he was from northern Louisiana, but we have yet to see his reasons. He had that beautiful blond hair and innocent look which made him very popular with the opposite sex. He is a typical old sea-dog, being the unsettled and roaming type, and is sure to make a good Diesel engineer. RALPH FREDERICK BLAKE 278 Port-land, Maine Midships — Rifle Company — Ski Club . . . Ralph hailed from Portland which, in spite of all its publicity, is just onother New England seaport. He mode friends very easily, and often went far out of his way to do his friends a favor. He seemed to lean toward Engineering above oil other studies. Now that he has his license, watch him go after that plumb- ing and heating job up in Portland. JAMES NELSON CAIL 278 Charlotte, North Carolina Rifle Company . . . Even though he was rebel born and bred, the " Deacon " greotly increased his catalogue of friends, both masculine and feminine, after he was so rudely drogged into the wilds of Kings Point. He ' s a great one for fixing up dates for his section-motes from his repertoire of foir femmes, and may justly be called the " Mike Jacobs of the Index Ring " — a great promotor. However happy he might be at Kings Point, that Carolina Moon has positive prece- dence in his heart. JACK HOWARD DAVIES 278 La Grande, Oregon Basketball — Track . . . Just one year ago, JD swung off the troin at Penn. Station with his sea bag swung over his shoulder. He had put in seven hard, cold months of service in the frozen wastes of Alaska, and was determined to thaw out completely while in N. Y. C. — he is still thawing!!! A natural athlete, with track and basketball his fav- orites, it required the entire section ' s efforts to keep him in shape. DONALD EDWARD DENSFORD 278 Shawnee, Oklahoma Rifle Company . . . Don, known as tne " Poor Girl ' s Von Johnson " in the section, because of a humorous incident that occurred at a section party. Ask him about it and he would be more than glad to tell you all, we ' re sure. We ' ll all miss him when he goes back to the Oklahoma hills, but he ' ll be happy as he goes about with his mat- tress safely tied atop his automobile roof, and the mem- ories of his activities at this Academy. ' " ttmi f27 £ CARL WILLIAM EINBROD JR. Baltimore, Maryland Battalion Staff . . . Carl was the man who gave the Sec- ond Battalion luxury of living two-to-a-room. His lead- ership qualities are outstanding in that he was our first section leader, and carried us through those first difficult orientation days, with not one man falling behind. His week-ends were shrouded with a mysterious cloak of secrecy, but we hardly think that he went to Baltimore every week just for the trip. ARNOLD GAMELSKY 278 Bronx, New York Dance Committee . . . Arnold was the brainchild of our section. He and his slide rule were inseparable companions. With his most original ideas on new fields of science and theory in general, the " Slipstick Kid " is sure to strike on one invention that will revolutionize everything. We predict a bright and wonderful future for him, and we will always be proud to remember that he was our section-mate. CHARLES DONALD GREY 278 Chicago, Illinois Rifle Company — Track . . . " Seedy " was a toll likable fellow with one of the greatest potentialities of anyone in the section. With little or no effort, he won respect and friendship with his radiant personality. He was adept in all sub- jects, but was considered the English expert. His " scraggy " appearance and good-natured manner was appealing to all, and he always will hold a warm spot in our hearts. WILLIAM RAY HAVENS 278 Beaumont, Texas Propeller Club — Rifle Club — Track . . . " Pat " told everyone of the glories of his great native state of Texas. He was never without a quick word of praise for his alma mater, nor was he ever without a helping hand for his friends. He was well liked in the section, and his social activities outside the Academy were, as far as can be ascertained, unsurpassed. ALVIN HARRY HECHT 278 South Norfolk, Virginia Midships — Rifle Company . . . " Little Alvin " won the popularity poll of the section. Although he came into our ranks from 266, after spending six weeks ot St. Albans Naval Hospital with an eye injury, his most felicitous mannerisms and his distinctly unique dialect brought him into the hearts of all. He plans to start a tugboat company with the large supply of capital that he will acquire someday. FRANK LARKIN HUSSEY JR. 278 Wilmette, Illinois Propeller Club — Rifle Company — Dance Committee — Wrestling . . . Caught in the whirl of the busy passing days, Frank ' s ever famous, " Bananas — I ' m late " , or " Holy Nelly, how could they? " became as regular as the mess calls to which he was always tardy. With his power of determination, he harnessed his vim and vitality for the wrestling team, and his will to decorate the world was exposed in his work on the dance committee. mi ; HUTCHINSON WENDEL AYAR HUTCHINSON, JR. 278 New York City Wendel is a smoll town boy who does things in a big way. In ail his dealings, his common sense and keen sense of values have stood him in good stead. Add to these on engaging personality and the happy faculty of winning friends easily and you hove the qualities which insure the making of an outstanding officer and gentleman. THOMAS ROY KOLAR JR. 278 Independence, Missouri " Cokey " was a staunch backer of his fellow Independence man in the White House at the time. He was always will- ing to carry on a friendly argument on the attributes of his home town. He had a clever, quiet manner obout him, and was one of the most likable and all-round good sports of the section. His calm manner of meeting a situation, and his pleasant personality, are great assets for any that make his acquaintance. GUISEPPE ALFEO LOSSO 278 Highland Park, New Jersey Seventh Company Commander . . . Joe was one of the oldest men in the section. As such he helped his section mates at times when advice was needed in subjects where experience was valued. He was always honest in all his deeds and words with everyone including himself. If he continues to uphold the high standards that he has set for himself, his life will be one full of success and good will to others. BENNY BERT MATHIAS 278 Toledo, Ohio Scholastic Award — Rifle Company — Radio Club, President . . . " Ben " was undoubtedly the most brilliant member of our section. He excelled in all his courses, but was particularly outstanding in electricity with a 3.9 average. He is personally responsible for the forming of the Radio Club, and the " setting up " of its amateur radio. To a clear think- ing and level headed man we all send our best support in any venture that he might undertake, for we ore confident that he will always excell. EUGENE JOSEPH McGUIRE 278 New York City Gene is the sort of person that con get along with whomever and whatever he meets. Characterized by an easy going personality he possesses a sense of humor that is able to see □ funny side in everything. To give you Gene in a few words would be impossible, but no matter what he undertakes, his keen judgment and self-confidence will take him to the top. JOSEPH ALEXANDER SAWICH 278 Hamtramck, Michigan Scholastic Award — Midships — Rifle Company . . . The world knows little of its real men who face life each day with a smile and a clear mind, accepting fate as it comes. They are the type thot understand, and are will- ing to give a helping hand where needed. We, of 278, knew that Joe was such a man. Keep going your way, Joe, and success will be yours. You will always be a credit to Kings Point, wherever you are, and whatever you may be doing. t-tsmm RICHARD LEE STALLINGS McAllister, Oklahoma Sixth Company Commander . . . The whole Second Baf- tolion found a fun-loving, colorful and political leader in Richard. He wos a much sought after party boy, who was never seen " oshore " on the week-end without an attractive blonde or a " reasonable facsimile thereof " . New York and its vicinity will long echo with his Okla- homa " war-whoop " , which resounded from many a fro- licking party. EDGAR CLIVE BAKER 283 Wilmington, North Carolina Edgor Baker was well fitted for his career in the Cadet Corps. He was on old sailor on Tampa Boy for many years previous to his entering Pass Christian, Here at Kings Point he soon became the section ' s " Demerit King. " A close estimate puts his score at a little over one hundred hours. Truly, he will be missed, both by his friends and by the security officer. JAMES JOSEPH BAMBRICK JR. 283 Ozone Park, New York Propeller Club — Polaris — Windjammers — Fencing Team — Debating Team ... Jim was best known by his occomplish- ments. He exhibited to all his tolents as writer, orator, athlete and student. As news editor of Poloris, his talents were fully realized, and scarcely on issue went to press without on article by him. He also served as captain of the Fencing Team. Kings Point will miss his spirit, resourcefulness and abilities. GEORGE GORDON BILES 283 Pender, Nebraska Debating Team — We all predicted big things for " Lord George " when he came to Kings Point. He did not foil us. In no time at a ll he was our recognized champion in the fine art of missing inspections, although he never disclosed how he did it. Among his other occomplishments was his ability as a debotor. His silver tongue brought honor and distinc- tion not only to the Academy, but to him personally. MERRILL BRUCE BIRNBAUM 283 New Rochelle, New York Propeller Club . . . Bernie ' s room-mates describe him as the model Cadet-Midshipman; we can but echo their senti- ments. One of the section ' s better navigators and seamen, Merrill seems destined for a successful career as a ship ' s officer. His many attributes, coupled with the skills he has acquired here ot Kings Point could lead only to thot one goal. Good luck, Merrill. JOHN LIONEL CARROLL 283 Oakland, California Soon after his arrival at Kings Point, Carroll became known to his section motes as " The Great John L. " The title applied to his social achievements, however, rather than his physical powers. John not only received letters from his native California, but also from every state on the west coast. Evidently this quiet, stocky, curley haired young fellow from the " land of sunshine " hod plenty on the ball. j •iri Dlina ANTHONY VAN DYKE CHAPIN 283 New Hope, Pennsylvania Propeller Club — Polaris — Windiommers — Glee Club — Dance Bond . . . Anthony Chopin believed that to get the most out of Kings Point, you must engage in every activity possible. He was a living example of his belief. His talents were evidenced by all, during his tour of duty ot the Academy. We feel that success is assured for him. ELMER FREDERICK DAMM 283 LiHle Rock, Arkansas Elmer is a typical example of the oft cited cose of the farmer who went to sea. Strictly a country boy, he claimed that the Cadet Corps was a creek in his bock yard. However, the farmer is now a full fledged seomon with salt water flowing in his veins instead of blood. HENERY MACK DAVIS 283 Greenville, South Carolina Rifle Company . . . " I ' ll take Dixie every time, " were the famed words of " Hank " Davis, the section ' s southern gentle- man. Never one to mince words, he spoke loud and often in praise of his native state and the land below the Mason- Dixon line. He is certainly destined to become a member of Greenville ' s Chamber of Commerce. M NORMAN JOHN FINK 283 Dayton, Ohio Basketball . . . " Guiseppe the Barber " seemed to be forever falling in love. Con it be that these Ohio boys have something different in their make-up? But don ' t imogine that Norman limited his activities to love alone. Far from it, our Casanova also displayed his abilities on the donee floor and on the basketball court. Kings Point hos graduated an excellent officer. ALAN GUSTAF JOHNSON 283 New York City, New York The possessor of o naturally friendly spirit toward others, Alan ' s inborn qualities hove mode lasting comrades of his many friends. His personal problems were never too great for him to give his time to the helping of his brother Cadet- Midshipmen. His good nature should stand him in good stead In trying situations while his outstandig ability should carry him for in any field he enters. JOSEPH ARTHUR KOLLER 283 Plandome, New York With o friendly personality and a gift for leadership, Joe was bound to succeed from the beginning. Never one to shirk duty, yet still easy going, he stands high in the regard of his classmates. He has been able to solve oil problems that have come his way. Full of good cheer, and having a sense of humor, Joe has constantly been a help to one and all. Now that we ore leaving each other for bigger things we realize how fortunate we were to hove him among us. ROBERT MARLETTE MclNTOSH Alameda, California Second Battalion Commander . . . " Mac " resolved to go places and do things at Kings Point. He did. Starting as a lowly Jeep, he worked his way through the ranks until he reached the coveted position of Battalion Com- mander. He held that position until he graduated. An excellent leader, a good student and o swell shipmate " Mac " has earned the admiration and respect of us a ' DOUGLASS NEWELL NELSON 283 Charloti-e, North Carolina Doug is a quiet unassuming chap, but anytime any of us needed a helping hand we could always count on him for any- thing within his power. Possessed of an enormous capacity to enjoy life and still get the most out of it, he has warmed the hearts of all who knew this sterling southern gentleman. Here ' s wishing him the success and happiness he deserves. HARRY ARNOLD PEYSER 283 Chicago, Illinois Propeller Club — Rifle Company — Fencing Team . . . When Harry came to Kings Point after his tour of duty at sea, he surprised everyone with his petiteness. However little men can do big things. Harry demonstrated this all during his stay. An active member of many clubs and organizations, he also served on the fencing team. His skill with the foils will be long remembered by all. THOMAS JAMES QUAYLE 283 Delaware, Ohio Rifle Company . . . " Get behind that radiator! Buff the decks! Who cleaned the over-head light? " These were fa- miliar words to " Harpy " Quayle ' s room-mates whenever he was room captain, for Tom was a hard man when it came to cleaning quarters. He always made that all-out effort for a commendation. We feel he will make a wonderful hus- band for some lucky girl someday. JOSEPH NORMAN SCHWARTZ 283 Woodmere, New York Cadet Officer . . . " Jos " come to Kings Point in April, 1945. He quickly adjusted himself to the strict discipline of the Regiment and almost immediately joined the ronks of the Cadet-Officers. He equally distinguished himself in the class- room by maintaining an average of star status. His pleasing personality and love of corn-fed jokes made him a well known figure in the second battalion. CLYDE JEAN SMITH 283 Texarkana, Arkansas " Big Red " Smith came to Kings Point twelve months ago, and during his stay, his wit and manner of speech kept us laughing continuously. His nick-name was derived from two sources, one was his flaming red hair, and the other was the red hot temper he possessed. All in all, Clyde has done well here, a real credit to the Cadet Corps and Arkansas. SCHWARTZ WALTER WILLIAM SPARKS 283 Portland, Oregon Regimental Adjutant . . . Walt is a human being in every sense of the word. Changing circumstances, hard times, and anxious moments did not change his bosic friendliness or good nature. He was stroight-forward and natural in oil his associations, and never failed to say what he thought. He could always find time to help a fellow section-mate. ZACK COKEEN TODT 283 Indianapolis, Indiana A willingness to help others will always be associated with John ' s personality. His well-kept and extensive notes, and his unusual memory helped many section-motes go through the rough spots. Zack ' s belief in physical as well as men- tal improvement prompted his doily workouts. Zack ' s love of the Academy, and earnest ombition, will make him hard to keep down when the going gets rough. JAMES WEST JR. 283 San Rafael, Californoi Swimming . . . James West was the best section leader 283 ever hod. He was elected for two terms, and drafted for a third term. Affectionotely known as " Baby Face, " West was a master of the tall story. He delighted in the telling of exaggerated tales. We hope this trait will not hamper him in later life. THOMAS JOSEPH BRISKEY JR. 284 North Plainfield, New Jersey " Uncle Tom " Briskey hod on easy going composure that was evidenced by his attitude in everything, from studies to regimental inspections. With an ever present smile on his face, he was the original " good-humor man " of the section. He was the sole representative from New Jersey, and always hod a good word to throw in when a " bull session " was on. Tom was our " level-headed boy. " We all wish him the best of luck in the futiire. JOSEPH HERMAN CARRIERE 284 New Orleans, Louisiana Propeller Club . . . " Big Joe ' s " large stature was matched by on agreeable personality that had been said to excel even his size. He was a great guy when it came to needing a special friend in an emergency, because he was large enough to moke Joe Louis think twice before storting an argument. Joe hopes to find a Diesel ship that runs between the United States and Cuba, since it is his ambition to be a good Diesel engineer and the owner of an inexhoustoble supply of Cuban " molasses " . JAMES JACKSON CASKEY 284 Groveton, Texas Propeller Club — Indoor Track . . . Jackson Caskey hod the unique qualifications of a perfect lady killer. He claimed that his success in track was the result of his many flights from Texan women. He did on excellent job in that respect though. His section-mates were proud of his reputation not only with women, but also in sports. We wish him the best of Texan luck, and recom- mend him as the type of man who will moke a good officer. 183 ' ' • ' ' tmr2B FRANK SALVADOR CIRIGLANO 284 San Jose, California Propeller Club — Escort Committee . . . Mention Califor- nia and the brood grin will spread over " Pops " face. He mode himself known to all by being blessed with the uncanny ability of always doing the right thing. Ambi- tious ond industrious, his tireless efforts paved the way for his ocademics. Still, he found time to attend most of the sociol events, eoch time dragging a different girl from his bevy of women. DAVIDSON HORACE CHILTON DAVIDSON JR. 284 Beaumont, Texas Rifle Company . . . Horace was the most eager member of the section and was known to study as much as sixty min- utes in one week. One often found him sitting in a chair with the some pose os the famous " Thinker.

When we see Drummer Bill ' s name in spotlights on Broadway in years to come, all of us will look bock to Kings Point days and proudly comment that we hod contributed to his success by donating to the vitamin pill fund. William is from Boston, The Center of Culture, so he tells us. Well, maybe so, but whot would Boston be without Scolloy Square? t; JAMES EDWARD GREENE 284 Maspeth, New York " Hard-nose " Greene was one of the more jovial characters in section 284. His good humor saved many a Thursday afternoon lob that could have ended in disaster. His week day hat looked as if it had been driven through a positive displacement gear pump. However, he retained it for a sentimental reason, which was permissoble, since the rest of his attire always rated a commendation. RONALD WOODS HEDIN 284 Cedar Rapids, Iowa Scholastic Award . . . " Ronny " , our friend and neighbor from the toll corn state, Iowa, was one of the more interesting members of our section. He was o calm and efficient fellow, with a quiet store of knowledge in reserve. He could take an exam with a dime novel in one hand and his exam popers in the other. He was outstanding in that he did not hove one demerit. RICHARD IVY ISTRE 284 Jennings, Louisiana Rifle Company . . . Rick enrolled with the Maritime Service before enlisting in the Cadet Corps, and was eager to get his Maritime Commission. During his stay here, he was strictly an engaged man. He was a fellow who really believed in staying true to his one and only. The whole section was with him. Best wishes for a happy marriage, Rick. GEORGE WEBSTER KEANE 284 Hilton Village, Virginia Glee Club, Soloist — Second Battalion Staff . . . " The Voice " hails from the state so well known for its delicious hams, genial people, and southern hospitality. He certainly exhibited his home environment while with the section, since there was never an occasion when George was caught without a song to meet the immediate needs. He was directly responsible for bringing the section ' s morale out of the bilges more than once. GEORGE WALTER MAY Windjammers — Boxing — Regimen to 284 Monhasset, New York Staff — Second Battalion Staff . . . " Angle Man " was the skipper who had the leading sailboat in all the races.

He went through the Academy with a fine spirit and a keen attentive interest in oil activities. DeWITT MERRITT 284 Warsaw, North Carolina Propeller Club — Boxing . . . When 284 needed a representative on the boxing field, it was Dewitt who volunteered. Interestingly enough, he actually developed a skill in that sport which might prove excelling, were it not for the fact that it interfered v ith his " social life " (as he put it). His straight-forward attitude did much to help the section along. THOMAS DeWITT MUIRHEAD 284 Bridgeport, Ohio Basketball — Softball — Rifle Company . . . wherever a crowd was gathered you ' d be sure to find Tom as the center of ottroction imitating some outstanding personage at the Academy, or hotly defending his beloved Ohio against derog- atory remarks by foreigners who claimed they hod been there and seen it too. As we seek new and broader horizons a steady course will be steered by Tom, a loyal and sincere friend to all hands. CHARLES ADRIAN PARKER 284 New Orleans, Louisiana Charlie was one of the foster-fathers of the section. It was he who kept up the average grade. He was rather quiet appearing fellow at first sight, but after the first SIX months one learned to appreciate him. Just another case of " still woter running deep " . His few, but witty, remarks in classes were really rore and for between. ' • ' ' tm y B 185 ' ' • tm y2€ EUEL EARLWIN PHILLIPS 284 Houston, Texas Glee Club, Soloist — Rifle Company . . . Anyone who has been with " Texas Slim " , even for a few moments, can readily appreciate his genial, happy-go-lucky western brand of humor. " Don ' t worry ' bout a thing " , was Tex ' s motto as he went about with his good-humor wagon. When it came to women, he was on the spot with his Texas charm, and appealing personality. ROBERT HENRY RADFORD 284 Hartsville, South Carolina You ore able to tell just what sort of a person Bob is after associationg with him for o while. Though he Is making preporations for his forthcoming marriage, as yet, he has not found the girl. Bob ' s idea of the perfect home is one in which he could set his family off to " see the sea. " WILLIAM EDWARD REEVES 284 Ado, Oklahoma Propeller Club . . , Combining a ready wit and winning smile with his mid-western ruggedness, BiM soon gained many friends who will always be indebted to him for confidence inspired by his good-natured leadership and helping hand. Bill possessed the ability to put his academic standing up in the coveted numbers, while still finding time for other ac- tivities. Bill has two outstanding characteristics, common sense and good judgment, which will assure his future success. MORTON CLARKSON ROACH JR. 284 San Francisco, California Propeller Club — Track — Boxing . . . Although from outward appearances, he seemed quiet, reserved, and one who pos- sessed an excess of prohibitions and manners, Mort wos a virtual demon when it came to jam sessions thot were really on the solid side. Before entering the Cadet Corps, he served a hitch in the Army and witnessed plenty of combat action. However, he still prefers a career in the Merchant Marine, rather than marching in the infantry. CHRISTOBAL RODRIQUEZ 284 San Francisco, California Propeller Club — Rifle Company — Cross Country — Track Team . . . The " lover " , commonly known as " Rod " , had a record number of romances while at the Academy through his many contracts at a certain dancing pavilion in New York City.

George, olios amigo " Jorje Guiccermo Viaje " , spent an interesting life of travel in foreign countries, where he learned Spanish fluently. He worked for " Wild Life " , while in Mexico, and spent two and one-half years at forestry, bull fighting and Mexican senoritas. With this valuable training, George has all the makings of a first-class foreign ambassador. « ® WAGGONER CHARLES LOYD WAGGONER 284 Odessa, Texas Propeller Club — Rifle Company . . . Waggoner, alias " The Angle, " was the model Cadet-Midshipman, and as such, tried in vain to better his section ' s appearance. Little need be said of his character, since it was beyond reproach. As his requiem, we might say, " Rise up, oh ye Kaydet, for the Regiment of Cadet-Midshipman Officers is at your door, and reveille has sounded. " ROGERT ARTHUR WHARRY 284 Larchmont-, New York Glee Club — Rifle Company . . . Bob was an all-around sportsman who found time, together with his studies, to play tennis, sail, and dance (ot the tea parties) . He may be characterized by o worried expression one minute, and a hearty lough on his face the next minute. A very attentive fellow, with a well-balanced list of ideals, he is sure to meet with much success in the future. ) 187 wm 4 4 -- ' -mt $ SCOTT WILLETT ARDERY 344 Lexington, Kentucky From the land of thoroughbred horses and beautiful women came this genial fellow, on eosy-going, sunny- hearted Southerner with a ready smile, a pleasant drawl, a rich stock of stories, boundless tact, and a win- ning disposition.

WILFRED ALPHONSUS CAMPBELL 344 Brooklyn, New York Cadet Officer . . . " Bill " was always the moinstay of the section. His quiet and complacent nature more than once pulled his buddies through tight scrapes. Bill will long remain in our memory os " one of the best. " In the near future, it is certain that Bill will be a pillar of his community, with his family close about him. PERRY Q. COLLINS, JR. 344 Metter, Georgia " This world and then one more " — this philosophical observotion has often been made by Perry. Quiet and unassuming, he has the gifted ability to do well in his studies, with a minimum of book work. Anxious to return to warmer climes. Perry will seek out his old haunts around Savannah way and stow his gear in a ship headed south. JOHN FRANKLIN DALENBERG 344 Chicago, Illinois John came to us as a mere babe in arms, but after a few months at Kings Point he was a hardened veteran. His ability to leap out of the sack on the first note of the bugle was something no one could understand. Despite his shy exterior, there lay beneath an engineering genius, which came forth in moments of need to save the day for his roommates. CHARLES WILLMARY ELLERTON 344 Norfolk, Virginia Charles W. Ellerton, " Gookey " to his friends, leaves a pleasant thought in the minds of his section mates. Charley was always good for a lough, even during the most trying moments. Underneath his sometimes overactive humor, Charlie carried a heart of gold, which always placed him where a friend was needed. We will oil look forward to the happy day when once again we can be with Charlie. ROBERT JAMES GEIGER 344 Mansfield, Ohio The Bunk Club, under the capable leadership of " The Geig " and his room mote " The Warn " , flourished on the secluded third deck of Jones Hall.

Bob Guthrie, known to his many friends as " Guth " , was prob- ably the busiest man in the section. If he wasn ' t making posters or signboards for the Third Battalion, he was working diligently on Midships II, of which he wos Sports Editor. At every sports event, " Guth " could be seen snapping pic- tures and taking notes from which his masterpieces of journalism were molded. CHARLES RAYMOND JAYNES 344 Akron, Ohio Jaynes, " Sunshine Bey of 344 " was, for a while the mystery man of our jetween smiles, Charley was known as the " womon hater " , until his fieic little Id was Third Battalion Staff . . . Charles R. J_, group. Foithful, and always griping between smiles, Charley wui miuwh ub ine wuinun iiuiei , unm nib iieiu wui reversed, much to everyone ' s surprise, by a certain resident of nearby Bayside. The section ' s wishes are with you, Charley. Moy you be as good a husband as you ore a regular fellow. EDWARD JAMES KNEAVEL 344 Baltimore, Maryland " Hose " came to live with us after spending many months in the section penal colony, room 6328. Ed was a chip off the old block, an " old salt " . He broke into the league around April ' 45, coming up from the Four Star. A combinotion of many talents made up this smooth operator. He was a brilliant student, fine guy, and good Softball pitcher. DONALD JEROME LEAHY 344 Williston Park, New York Basketball . . . Leahy will olways be remembered for the high spirituol plane on which his mind and that of a cer- tain woman dwealt. On Saturday night there was always the familiar clanging of a bucket about 5 minutes before he came in from liberty. This sound became as well known to oil who lived on the deck as the chow bugle. The motto of his roommates was " to always be prepared. " CHARLES FREDERICK LESTER 344 Stockton, California Charley, better known as " Ma " , was a boy from " Mother Soade " . He left us with many fond recollections: among them ore his hard heel slippers, which resounded throughout the third deck of Jones Hall; the passion with which he ordered a coke floot, and his ability to greet the returning combat men on Saturday night. As a practical engineer he was voted most likely to succeed by Mr. Travis. i WILLIAM HOFFMAN PATTISON 344 Bethesdc, Maryland Fourteenth Company Commander . . . The section hod little association with " Shoulders " because he did not live on the some deck. However, just mention the word golf to him and you were due for o resume of the latest doings in that sport. Not until the section retired did we get to know our honorable Cadet-Officer, but we ' ll al- ways remember him as the man with the coat hanger on his " shoulders " . ' " " " :tU):Jt34 : S il 191 j::mj]-34f WILLIAM MANSEL PROTHEROE 344 Barberton, Ohio Codet Officer — Track Team — Scholastic Award — Glee Club . . . William Protheroe, or " Pro " , as he was known to his section mates, will always be remembered as one of the " high point " men on the track teom. His medals, won in numerous events, take up half of his personal shelf. " Pro " was the boy who never studied, but won and kept his Scholastic Award. PROTHEROE SCHROEDER ALBERTUS NICHOLAS SCHROEDER, JR. 344 Washington, District of Columbia Cadet Officer . . . The pride and joy of section 344 (and Lieut. Travis), Bert holds the unmolested honor of being a " Geep " in his 46th week, having given guidonce to the 17th Company, in that capocity, for 36 weeks. Aside from writ- ing and receiving more letters than the entire section combined, he has found time to represent the first class commit- tee, and compile a photographic album of Academy life. CHARLES ANDREW SHUTTLEWORTH 344 Brooklyn, New York Rostrum — Windjammers ... He was known about the Academy os Andy, especially with his section motes ond mem- bers of the Windjammer Club. Andy spent most of his free time with the Windjammers, either sailing or working on the boats. He liked dinghies, but his favorite was the " S " boot. Another favorite postime is eating good food, especially steaks. When it comes to the fairer sex, he prefers blondes. JOSEPH WILFRED SURETTE 344 Maiden, Massachusetts Midships — Glee Club — Propeller Club . . . Hailing from around Boston town, is Joe Surette — smiling, friendly, sociable, perhaps the most gifted man in the section. A member of tKe art staff of Midships, Joe could often be seen working on portraits and other drawings. His position on the Glee Club was known by all in the section, because he was always the backbone of the shower room quartette. ROBERT EDWARD WERNER 344 Palmerton, Pennsylvania Basketball — Tennis, Member Eastern Intercollegiate Champs . . . Always reody with a smile, this powerfully built Casa- nova from the Keystone state was perhaps one of the most outstanding athletes ever to don the " Silver and Blue " for Kings Point. Amiable, easy going, " Bob " could always be counted on for help with a tough thermo problem and was always ready to lend a helping hand on the Third Battalion Intramural teams. KENNETH AUSTIN BARRICK 349 Harrisburg, PennsyWania Softball — Polaris — Rifle Company — Windjammers — Propeller Club — Transportation Committee . . . Although " Ken " has become somewhat of a globe trotter in recent years, he still considers " The City of Brotherly Love " the center of the universe. He keeps up to the minute with international affairs, especiolly those of the " Land Down Under. " SHUTTLEWORTH r I - sr ■ ■IW RICHARD FREDERICK BERNARD 349 Los Angeles, California Tough Dick may almost be considered a globe-trotter, he still thinks that his " podunk " in California is the center of the universe. Although he was an ardent student and a diligent worker, he never slighted his social life. His dancing, humor, and pleasant manners hod a winning way with the fairer sex. His determination to finish any assigned task should assure him success in his chosen profession. PETER JOSEPH BREZZA, JR. 349 Linwood, Pennsylvania Scholastic Award — Polaris — Rifle Company — Propeller Club — Transportation Committee . . . Hailing from Marcus Hook, Pennsylvanio, " Pete " journeyed from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to enter the Academy. He went there as o volun- teer worker to help repair our damaged fleet. He attained a star average in most of his subjects and always had time to help his shipmates. JOHN CLAPP BROWN 349 Medford, Massachusetts Here ' s one sailor you can ' t disregard. You con cuss him out or break his skull, but he still returns to battery. Then, you can ' t help feeling sorry that you tried to squelch him. A staunch friend of the underdog ond fiery debunker of the " big shot, " he was certainly no plutocrat. You can ' t call him t he soul of modesty or the picture of beauty, but you can coll him Brown. JOSEPH RYAN BRUNSON, JR. 349 Allendale, South Carolina Rifle Company — Windjammers — Propeller Club — Transportation Committee, Chairman . . . Joe comes from down South Carolina way. He was never bothered by academic work and did not find it necessary to neglect his sociol life, particularly with the " femmes " . His cheerful disposition and easy-going ways won him many friends at the Academy. His sincere devotion to see the job through will insure success in whatever he undertakes. LAWRENCE THOMAS CLARK 349 Kearny, New Jersey Rifle Company — Glee Club — Windjammers — Propeller Club . . . " L. T. " comes from the West, not too for west, but from just west of the Hudson River. Like a few of the other boys, he took his Basic Training in sunny California, at least that ' s what they told " L. T., " until he sow that liquid sunshine wash away two bridges. DON ROBERT EVANS 349 Wichita, Kansas Transportation Committee, Chairmen . . . Don comes from |ust a little north of the " Sooner " state, which he calls his second home. He ' s been in New York for quite Q while now, but his heart is still in Oklahoma riding a cow pony. We also remember the time he was just " a little late " on liberty coll one Sunday and hod the whole Academy in on uproar. tm s ) i ■ " -:t:mrd49 DONALD CRAWFORD FERGUSON 349 Miami, Florida Seventeenth Company Commonder . . . " Fergie " , the " Pepsodent Kid " , is from sunny Miami. He was the hardest worker in the section, and never gave up until he completed what he set out to accomplish. " Old Jowls " always seemed to bluster about, but wos really the smilin ' est and loughin ' est of the section. " Fergie " become o Cadet Officer, and finally reached tops as Sev- enteenth Company Commander. His Company was proud of him. f t JACK ARMSTRONG HARRIS 349 St. Louis, Illinois Regimental Adjutant — Boxing — Scholastic Award . . . Jack was from the Middle West, and always swore he was going to take his license to soil the muddy Mississippi. He was at the heod of his class, won the Scholastic Award, and was a leader in athletics, participating in all sports he could. Jack worked his way as a Cadet-Officer to Thirteenth Company Commander and from there was chosen Regimental Adjutant. RUPERT NICHOLAS HOYE, JR. 349 Chicago, Illinois Cadet Officer — Scholastic Award — Rifle Company — Propeller Club . . . Hoye knew more people than we con possibly name here, and the people he didn ' t know, knew him. The lough of his year is hard to pick; maybe it was the time his date to o dance lost her dress (forgot to pock it really), and an announcement was made in the mess hall directing the finder to return it to him. JAY HARDY O ' FLYNN, JR. 349 Owensboro, Kentucky Thirteenth Company Commander . . . Joy was affectionately known to his section mates as " C-K " . The firebrand of the section, he was always ready to enter into an argument or a fight. Only 5 ' 5 " toll, he was always seen with someone at least 6 ' 2 " , including women. Being a hard worker, he was near the top of his doss and well liked by the instructors. ALAN MELVIN SWAHLSTEDT 349 St. Louis, Missouri Alan was the sort of fellow who made real friends of his acquaintances, and he had those qualities which enabled him to retain them. A quiet, dignified southern gentleman, he still had a twinkle in his eye that revealed the youthful enthusiasm and the sense of humor that endeared him to his classmates. Alan will be a fine officer and a valuable osset to the Merchant Marine. DOUGLAS CHARLES WORKMAN 349 Lake City, Minnesota Sixteenth Company Commander . . . Doug was the steadying influence in the section, and always the first to " go to bat " against anything he thought was wrong. Although he liked the r.eo, he never forgot his yeors working with the railroad and from dawn to dusk we rode the roils constantly with Doug. This wasn ' t so bod, but with his experience as a telegrapher he was always showing instructors how to " send " . 1 SWAHLSTEDT WORKMAN v BROWNFIELD CHARLES LE ROY BROWNFIELD 350 St. Louis, Missouri Third Battalion Stoff . . . Quiet and easy-going, Charley was of the silent genius type. Noted for his artistic talents, Brownfield set a high mark for the rest of the section. A Third Battalion Staff man, Brownfield lived the life of the ideal Cadet-Midshipman. They say that he did not know what extra duty was. Keep up the good work, Charley. ROBERT HARRISON CALDWELL 350 Shawnee, Oklahoma Tall, lanky, and broad shouldered with wavy blond hair, this lad hailed from the broad prairies of Oklahoma where a man is o man and usually able to prove it. Though generous with his sincere western friendliness; one soon learned that to call the boy " Okie " warn ' t quite the kerrect thin ' to do " . Bob fitted in well with the rest of the section in that he was easy going, well monnered, and a bit wild. FRANK JAMES CANNING 350 City Mill, Massachusetts A good conversationalist, easy to know and like, Frank fitted in very well with section 350. He believed in handling situations in a diplomatic manner and served os a mediator when the circumstances became a bit tiring to the quick- tempered of the section. Among our fondest memories ore those " bull sessions " that centered around Frankie. We know that he will get along well in the world. JOSEPH RAPHAEL CAOLA 350 Holsopple, Pennsylvania Because of some quirk of nature, Joe ' s streak of white hair and graying sideburns gave him the title of the old man of the section. Joe was at on advantage in that he could pass for anywhere between 24 to 44 years of age. He had an active quiet humor and twinkling eyes, and always made a point of being easy to get along with. JAMES MARSHALL CONNOR 350 Washington, District of Columbia Jim without doubt deserves the title of chief diplomat and apple polisher of the section. A hard believer in the vinegar and molasses theory, Jim made it a point to always get along with the right people. Becouse of his typical 350 friendli- ness and easy going manner he had few enemies and a great many friends at the Academy. Lots of luck, Jim. JAMES HARVEY EAKES 350 Raleigh, North Carolina Because of his dimples and deceivingly innocent coun- tenance, Jim won the title of Junior of the section. Though decidedly more mature in actions than several others of the section, Eokes hod to bear occasional ribbings on his count. Jim never stinted in enjoying him- self, and as a result was well liked over the Academy. We are sure that he will go through life being well liked. tm] 250 195 t5f$ FRANCIS CRAVEN FRENCH 350 Webster Groves, Missouri Cadet Officer . . . French set the example for the section in regards to good study habits and honest efforts. Though he was very sincere and straightforward, the uninitiated had to beware of his subtle sense of dry humor. It is still a question, however, as to his secret of success in keeping his hair under the required two inches and at the some time flat on his head. WILLIAM JAMES GEORGE 350 Staten Island, New York Small but mighty was this young Cadet-Midshipman. Active in all types of sports and quick on his feet Bill was the athlete of the section. Quick also in humor, with his wavy dork hair and flashing eyes, George was popular wherever he roamed. Bill was first at the liberty muster, but lost when returning to the Academy on Saturday night. ROBERT HARRY GULCHER 350 Columbus, Ohio Third Battalion Staff — Scholastic Award . . . With his crimson hair and self conscious smile, " Red " Gulcher was the wonder boy of the section. His skill with the sax and clarinet won him Academy-wide fame, and he will always be remembered as one of the pioneers in organizing the Cadet Band. Gulcher did very well in his sideline of classwork at the Academy, winning and holding the Scholastic Star. JOE BERNARD HOLLINGSWORTH 350 Houston, Texas Eighteenth Company Commander . . . Tall and handsome with light wavy hair, Joe was popular in any crowd. He was Company Commander of the famous Eighteenth, a position which he held for seven months, a record up to that time. Texas should be proud of this young engineer. EDWARD GEORGE IRWIN 350 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ed knew how to make friends easily and hod many a friend at Kings Point. The friends of Ed ' s that we liked the most were those ahead of us that had all the " ponies " . A friend of Ed ' s was a friend of section 350. With his agreeable personality, and gentlemanly conduct, Ed will have no difficulty in making his way in the cold outside existence. JOHN JOSEPH KAIN 350 New Orleans, Louisiana Full of vim and vigor, Koin took port in a great many extra-curricular activities, too numerous to mention here. Kain ' s hobby seemed to be women and trouble. And speaking of troubles, John will long be remembered by his section mates in regard to his explanations to Lt. Brown regarding a Cadet-Midshipmon ' s necessity of an iron at Kings Point. HOLLINGSWORTH • " se- MATTHEWS McGILBERRY POINDEXTER u )liio JOHN PHILLIP MATTHEWS 350 Houston, Texas John was the fat boy of the section. Fat, however, is a harsh word since how anyone could stow excessive avoirdupois tissue at the Academy is beyond comprehension. Probably it is better just to soy that John assimilated better than the others. Colm in all situations and possessing a quick, simple wit, Matthews is the type who will get along well in 3ny crowd. JAMES THOMAS McGILBERRY 350 Birmingham, Alabama Mac was always the kind of fellow who would look at home in a pair of patched blue overalls, a flannel shirt, a brood straw hat, and a ripe blade of wheat protruding from the side of his mouth. He took to the disciplinary system like the Sahara to rain. His easy going ways, twinkling eyes, broad smile, and ready wit mode him many friends at Kings Point. THOMAS CONRAD POINDEXTER 350 Sh Louis, Missouri Cadet Officer . . . Poindexter might be typed as the quiet genius species, except, at will, he could become far from silent. He had the distinction of being one of the few Cadet Officers like and respected by oil under his command. He was always very sincere in anything which he undertook and he did well at the Academy. He seemed to be an individual devoid of enemies. HUBERT JOSEPH SCHEER 350 Coilingswood, New Jersey Scheer was noted for his independent thinking and uninhibited manner of expressing himself. His frankness won him the respect of not only the section but many others. An expert swimmer, it is unfortunate that graduation come just at the beginning of the swimming season. Scheer, typical of section 350, was quick witted and, of course, easy going. Good swimming to you in the future. RICHARD ERNEST UHLMAN 350 Erie, Pennsylvania Quiet and at all times sincere, Dick was representative of that class of homo-sopiens which are not at first outstanding, but because of their constancy and stick-to-it-ness are soon foremost os those who can be always depended upon. Uhlman did well in anything he undertook. Some of these days, Dick, we will meet you sailing a coal barge as chief engineer on the Lakes. !«? THOMAS LAFFERTY BOONE 355 Little Rock, Arkansas Tommy, " The Little Beaver " , whose ever favorite sub- ject was freedom, civilian luxury, and the University of Arkansas, will be a civilian by the time this hits print. Unlike his section mates, the " women con wait " attitude prevailed in his life. Tommy was our fast and firy ath- lete and would have been All-American if he was just 50 pounds heavier. — rX-r -r:M tmi 355- CHARLES ANTHONY CARDELLI 355 Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania Third Bottalion Commander ... A born leader and on excellent scholor — thot wos Tony, " the little flower of the Third Bott. " These qualities, together with his ready wit, earned him the esteem ond friendship of his fellows. Add to these a willingness to ossume responsibility and it is evident we are certain, that he will succeed in whatever field he may choose. GUYLAND LOUIS CENTNER 355 Peoria, Illinois Regimental Commander . . . Undoubtedly the most populorCadet Officer to graduate from King ' s Point was our former Regimental Commander, Guyland Louis Centner. His red heed was the home of a sparkling personality as well as a wealth of knowledge, both technical and liberal. His excellent leadership qualities together with his nautical abilities assure for him success of the highest degree in the Merchant Marine. GLENN HIRAM CHASE, JR. 355 Cliffside Park, New Jersey Third Battalion Staff . . . Glenn Chose was the clown of the section. As long as he was here, he took nothing seriously. Glenn always had a peculiar nickname for everything and everybody. He helped a great deal to moke our Academy life more cheerful. He used to get out of more classes with dental appointments and sick passes than any other Cadet-Mid- shipman in the section. EARL EDWIN DUNGAN 355 McBride, Mississippi " Death-ride " Dungan was definitely not nauticolly minded. He won a section boat race by sinking the other boots. His love for the weaker sex was paralleled only by his love for the Navy. As a " Yankee " that was transported deep in the heart of Mississippi made him always refer to the " way we do things Down South " . HOLLIS MYREL FUNDERBURK 355 Lake Placid, Florida Windjammers — Rifle Company . . . Hollis, " God ' s Gift to the Women " , hails from Bear Hollow, Florida. Among the flowers and palm trees our Hollis grew to be a Casanova. No one could change his mind about tankers — he could expound for hours. LEWIS SPENCE GRAHAM 355 New Orleans, Louisiana Although quiet and steady. Lew was an all-round good fellow who loved to enjoy life to its fullest, laughing at his losses and smiling at his gains. He played hard and worked harder. Though congenial and charming to all, he was a sound thinker who rarely gave idle or unsubstantiated opinions. His future shipmates may consider themselves very lucky.

" Happy " Harrison claims that he was Cadet-Midshipman Ensign longer than any other man in the Cadet Corps ' history, but his section motes know that he could have had another stripe. Although a strict disciplinarian, Harrison was famous in the Fifteenth Company for his willingness to fight for the company ' s grievances. His ability to clown and carefree attitude did much to enliven our stay at the Academy. WILLIAM ROBERT HAY 355 Chicago, Illinois Midships — Track — Cross Country — Third Battalion Staff. . . Look! Coming down the road! It ' s a cyclone. No, it ' s a dust storm. No, it ' s only Willie running the mile. William Hoy was one of the first to be out when the track team started practice. His running the mile and two mile helped Kings Point to many a victory. He really circulated while serving on the circulation staff of Midships. Keep on running Willie. You ' ll get there! CECIL SAMUEL HELTON, Jr. 355 Danville, Indiana From the Hoosier State, Cec did much to uphold the reputation of the mid-west at the Academy. He possessed all the natural traits which are indispensable to success as a Merchant Marine officer. His quiet, modest manner and his will- ingness to help others mode him an ideal roommate. Cec was o hard-working fellow who will keep plugging away until he hos achieved his ambitions. J. H. JACKSON, JR. 355 Richardson, Texas In every section there is one man who can keep a level head end to whom his classmates con turn for sound advice. In section 355 this man is none other than " Tex " , a true son of the Lone Star State. He has gained quite o reputation as a philosopher, giving out with homespun witticisms. Section 355 predicts a long, happy career as a Mariner for Jackson. HARRY GEORGE KUNTZ, JR. 355 Baden, Pennsylvania Propeller Club — Glee Club — Dance Band . . . Harry will be remembered as the kid who started his Cadet Corps life by foiling in love and ending the two years by marrying the gal. Remember " Miss Subway of September " . That ' s the gal, lucky boy. His jazz playing and imitations of Stokowski and 4.0 ' s are the moin remembrance, plus Audrey of course. LEZY MANUEL, JR. 355 Ville Platte, Louisiana Lezy will concede the Civil War, but not the superiority of Northern hospitality, femininity, or spirit. You ' ll find him a deep Southerner, easy going, affable, and thor- oughly loyal. Beneoth his personolity is a practical mind, experienced and observant, which will make Lezy an excellent officer and carry him for towards his goal, whether afloat or ashore. =f£fi: tm 355 GEORGE RICHARD MONTGOMERY Bay Harbor, Florida Propeller Club . . . George has olwoys been serious end conscientious in his desire to become a professional sea- man, yet manages to keep a good scholastic average without too much weor and tear on the text books. Happy go lucky, but never indifferent, he carries on air of cheerfulness wherever he goes. His obility to ignore trivialities and focus his attention on the more important problems will serve him well. LAVERNE HENRY MURPHY MONTGOMERY 355 Flint, Michigan Windjammers . . . Murphy Is about the most unassuming man in the section — although on the quiet side, he seldom misses a trick. He boasts an extra high scholastic average, and is as likable as they come. You can count on him to be non-committal in any on-the-spot argument. Section 355 will best remember him as the guy who was the section leader most. BURDETT ARNOLD OTIS, JR. 355 Pasadena, California " Old Bird Dog " , as he was affectionately known, enjoyed the section parties and had on undying faith in Southern California. Bob Burns had his Aunt Puney and " Bird " has his own Grandma Ollie. The legends of her and her fine fudge made her the section ' s " Pin-up Girl of 1 866 " . Bird was one of our brains and made the instructors work hard. DANA WILLIAM SCHENDERLEIN 355 Oakland, California Dove came from the sunny coast with a brood smile ond o good nature, soon well known throughout the Corps. His friendliness and willingness to help a friend in o pinch hove won him the respect and friendship of all who knew him. His ambition to succeed mokes us sure that he will go far in oil his undertakings. GEORGE LANDIS STEER 355 Detroit, Michigan Fourteenth Company Commander . . . " Landy " whs a straight-forward, clean-cut Cadet Officer and his success is shown by his rating of Company Commander. He was one of the biggest liberty hounds of the section. On week- ends, no matter what studying had to be done " Landy " was ashore. GERALD ANTHONY WACHOWIAK 355 Milwaukee, Wisconsin Jerry, " The Lover " , was the quiet type with the very mistoken belief in the Saintliness of Women. The most renowned friendship to develop in the Academy was between " The Lover " ond his pal " Bunky " . To " Wacky " we give our good wishes and hope his theory " To love and loose is better than not to love at all " will work out. SCHENDERLEIN WACHOWIAK 9 • - M . BREDBENNER ROEHM ALEXANDER WEST, JR. 355 Tulsa, Oklahoma West was our " sleepy boy " who just couldn ' t wake up. Because of his 0600 resemblance to the sad St. Bernard by the name of Josephene, he took that nickname. Lucky he had a Cadet Officer buddy to wake him gently. Roehm ' s every dream was of going to college end enjoying life. To our good natured friend and student supreme in ship construction we say, " Good luck " . THEODORE NATHANIEL WOODS, JR. 355 Everett, Ohio Propeller Club . . . Teddy will long be remembered as the Sidney Greenstreet of the Cadet-Midshipman lounge when he served as M. 0. D. during the bottle of class rates. Otherwise, " T. N. " was the well-read Cadet-Midshipman whose every dream was graduation, crossed swords, and happy wedding bells. His detest for physical exercises will definitely linger long in our memories. Good luck along the long matrimonial rood, T. N. SAM ANDREW BAILLO 356 Dearborn, Michigan Scholastic Aword — Propeller Club — Fifteenth Company Commander . . . Sam came directly from the Ford Motor Com- pany where he made a colorful start for the future. The momentum from his natural abilities carried him through the problems of Kings Point to rank him In the top port of his class, and a position as Company Commander. Application, sincerity, and diligence hove been his guiding principles. JOHN WILLIAM BREDBENNER 356 Washington, District of Columbia From the " Face on the Barroom Floor " to the higher arts such as Shakespeare and Kipling, Art would babble along until someone interrupted him. Always deep in thought when time would allow, he would scratch out o letter to that certain someone. Rumor has it that he might hove to resign his position as. a member of the Bachelors Association. JOSEPH CHOMSKY 356 Flushing, Long Island, New York " Little Joe " took his basic training at San Mateo in the heart of Sunny California, but first enjoyed the blessings of the extra duty team at Kings Point where he found plenty of time to devote to this activity. While attending classes at the Academy he managed to stay awake long enough and often enough to successfully complete the course and obtain his license. CHARLES MICHAEL DOLLBAUM 356 East Paterson, New Jersey Windjammers — Baseball, Manager — Dinghy Team . . . New Jersey born and bred, Charlie could alwoys be counted on to know the toughest answers. Although never quite attaining star rank, he wos well along in leading the section scholasticolly. With a great appreci- ation for poetry, text books often lay idle while he passed owoy the study hall by absorbing the greater works of arts. r r r: tm] 356 JOHN OSWALD FENNELL 356 Chorleston, South Carolina Propeller Club . . . Fresh from o yeor cruise around the world end hompered by o deficiency in certain aca- demic courses, " Honest John " dug in ond waded through the successive courses thrown at him in the engineer ' s sanctum, Fulton Hall. Although level heoded and scrupulously honest, it is whispered around thot John once " borrowed " his room-mate ' s dote at a house party after a battalion dance. JOHN HENRY GREGER 356 Lott, Texas Propeller Club — Camera Club . . . The only knockneed cowboy frorr. Texas, Greg was soon tagged os " Marbles " due to his Southern drawl. He was a very conscientious Cadet-Midshipman who worked herd at any job he undertook. On liberty he was not very conscientious, as he seemed to go over big in the city of New York, and found it rather difficult to remain a true blue bachelor. ARTHUR HEWSENIAN 356 New York, New York The " Hoof " long ago attained membership in the 100 demerit club, and further distinguished himself in bringing glory to his battalion as a groppler. Good notured, except at 0550, Art could always be found at his desk wrapped in a blanket sound asleep, perhaps dreaming of those ultra-modern Liberty ships he loved so well. GUSTAF WILLIAM HOLMELIN 356 Propeller Club — Windjammers — Baseball — Dinghy Team down after thr- 24 ' s and joined the rest of the section informal get-together and could always be depended upon in the lounge of the Clinton. Cristobal, Canal Zone . , A typical playboy in a section of playboys, Gus buckled ith a 3.0 average. He was a leader in planning many an hen a section meeting was scheduled on o Saturday afternoon RALPH ELMER ITSCHNER 356 Cincinnati, Ohio Boxing, Manager . . . Ralph has long been the honorable secretary of the Governor Clinton Club. There are those who claimed that the author of Dick Tracy received his inspiration from our " Itch. " Ralph ' s fond dream is to become chief engineer on on Ohio River flat boat and he has extended to each an invitation to hove one on him when crossing the river. BAYNE PHARR KEEVER, JR. 356 High Point, North Carolina Propeller Club — Third Battalion Adjutant . . .During his stay as a Codet-Midshipmon he had one ambition, to prepare himself for c career as an officer, and in doing this he obsorbed all the qualities that Kings Point cculd offer. Con- scientious, efficient, well-liked, and decisions made with careful judgment, advanced him to a position of battalion adjutant. His understanding of people, sound education, and common sense will moke " Blinky " well remembered by all. HEWSENIAN HOLMELIN WILLIAM JOHN KORBELY 356 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Propeller Club , . . After finishing basic school Bill went to sea, as is customary, and eventually returned to New York to take his advanced training at Kings Point. He spent the usual normal life at the Academy having his full shore of extra duty to occupy his spare itme, and claims that some of his happiest hours at Kings Point were spent on the extra duty squad. ROBERT MARKS 356 Brookline, Massachusetts Propeller Club — Windjammers . . . " Greasy " spent many of his study halls enriching the minds of his room mates with tales of the briny deep or, more exactly, those shores washed by the briny deep. Many on evening passed with stories of debutantes in Buenos Aires and various and sundry characters in other ports. An accomplished gold bricker, he somehow managed to flirt with a 3.4 average and actually attained it once. ARDEN VAUGHN MEANS 356 Hollywood, Colifornia Football . . . Outside of trying to convince the numerous unbelievers here that California is the best place in the world, Means never hod a long-lasting problem. He loved football which he played five months o year and talked the other seven. With plenty of ability in his own unaided right and with malice toward none, he will never hove any trouble in coming out on top. PATRICK ANTHONY O ' HARA 356 St. Paul, Minnesota Pat, a well versed Codet-.Midshipmon, was usually in deep discussions of the world events. He had a never-ending source of information in the countless books he read in his spare time. On liberty. Pot could be found in New York ' s playhouses seeing the stage productions. He always found pleasure right here on the Academy grounds on week-ends and spent many of them just reading. LEO PLAHN 356 Chicago, Illinois From reveille to taps, Leo ' s flaming cheeks brightened the spirits of the section. His effervescent wit and ready lough coupled with a tireless ambition carried him well in many section and extra-curricular activities. He is a man of varied interests whose aspirations will secure for him a permanent berth in the shipping industry. His sometimes surprising arguments in class showed his ingenuity. JOSEPH RADOCY 356 Valley Stream, New York Scholastic Award — Propeller Club . . . " Radojet " kept his section motes gray with the burden of getting Joe through, and he was amazed when the scores were added up and he had retained his star for 36 weeks. With his satirical humor Joe would keep the section in constant fear of a future test. It always kept the boys on their toes, although he often failed at calling the test just right. nm r M LESLIE HOWARD REED 356 Longmont, Colorado Scholastic Awcrd — Propeller Club — Cadet Officer ... A son of the wide open spaces of Colorodo, Les was quick In proving himself the " Stars and Stripes Kid " , and sub- sequently became the reference book for section 356. Called " Smiley " by some, he was always willing to lay dawn Osborne and take up his part of a hot discussion on the relative merits of the West. SKOROPAD STEPHEN SKOROPAD 356 Chicago, Illinois H iding behind a big block cigar and a handful of pinochle cords, " Bullmoose " Skoropod stood out as the roughest section leader of all. His barking orders would snap any of us to. When not indulging in one of his seven daily cigars, he would give an informal performance of the Charleston. Without his two cups of coffee in the morning the day would never be right. HOWARD BERWYN VREELAND 356 Little Falls, New Jersey Propeller Club . . . Even now, after two years ' absence from basic school, Howie can occasionally be heard recalling the " good old days " at Mateo. Originally one of the section ' s men about town, Howie soon forgot his roving days and began to appreciate the quiet, sane way of life under the guidance of the future Mrs. Vreeland. PETER CHARLES WALTER 356 Tulsa, Oklahoma Tennis Team ... If, in future years, you should walk in some remote place and hear a wierd cry, a cross between the wail of Q loon and a love sick Cadet-Midshipman, chances are it would be Pete. Due to his cheerful griping and never failing sense of humor, Pete was a good man to have around when absorbed in the pleasant pastime of a hot bull session. EDWIN TAYLOR BECKHAM 361 Atlanta,. Georgia Another Rebel in our midst is " Good Buddy " Beckham, who treked No ' th to join our happy throng. Never seen without his faithful pipe between his teeth has given rise to the question, " Which came first the pipe or Becky " ? His role as mediator in many a heated argument as to who gave whose sword to who, granted him the title " Mother " Beckham. ROLAND CHARLES CHRISTIANSON 361 Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Rifle Company — Boxing . . . There is surely no man alive that can sleep in so many varied positions, and under the most adverse conditions. His ambition is to write a novel (after he learns to type) and he is currently " one fingering " a saga of the old west entitled " The Death Rattle Kid " . We are looking forward to it bursting forth like the bubonic plague. It is a saga to end all saga. VREELAND CHRISTIANSON 5C F RALPH EDWARD COSKEY 361 Detroit-, Michigan Ninth Company Commander . . . Ralph is about to join the " ball and chain " ranks soon after graduation, but goes on his merry way in seeming disregard of the awful fate in store for him. A company commander, he struck fear into the heorts of all save section 361, who used the sovereign remedy of " Pool Dunking " . We can say in closing — " Never has one man come so for and gotten so much. " ROBERT PHILIP CULPEPPER 361 Norfolk, Virginia Bob is a toll, cocky individuol hailing from Virginia, to whom the word North implies coldness. This is indicated by the fact that he wears long handled red flannels at all times. The only man who sticks out from both ends of the sock, " Spider " is a man of few words. Very slim, he has to stand twice in the same spot to moke a shadow. TOWNES LORING DAWSON 361 Dallas, Texas Propeller Club — Cadet Officer . . . Galloping out of the Texas bad lands on his pinto, and doily cutting new notches in his " smokepoles " , come " Death Rattle " Dawson. He has to repeat everything twice, because the ears of a normal Cadet- Midshipman can ' t keep up with him. Our esteemed section mate and cattle rustler always carries a pocket full of sand around with him just to feel at home. PAUL EARNEST DEEBEN 361 Trevorton, Pennsylvania Boxing . . . Paul has three loves: sports, photography, and members of the opposite gender. He is believed to have as many girls friends as the Mayflower had forefathers. Yes, it has been a trying year — Paul spent it trying to date every girl in the Manhattan area, but his fighting spirit is still undompened, and we believe he will go far in the fight to get ohead in the world. CARL HUBERT GEENEN 361 Connellsville, Pennsylvania Propeller Club — Glee Club — Dance Band — Track. . .The pride and glory of section 361, otherwise known as " Panty Waist, " has the strongest intestinal fortitude of any Cadet-Midshipman that has ever come to Kings Point. Although of diminutive stature, he possesses a jovial sense of humor, foresight and perseverance. These assets will injure for him a promising future. WILLIAM EUGENE HAGEY 361 Bristol, Tennessee Gfee Club — Rostrum . . . From Tennessee came Andrew Jackson and Willie Hagey. The former has had books dedicated to him; to the latter we can only dedicate this. According to Willie, his home town is a little haven of knowledge surrounded by the rest of the United States. He is currently engaged in writing a deathless epic en- titled " The Hagey Family " . To Willie we dedicate the " Rebel Yell. " LLOYD ANTHONY KETTENRING LEWIS CURRY HOLDER, JR. San Antonio, Texas The Greeks had Hercules, our fathers had John L., the pulp magozines have Atlas, and section 361 has Lou. His nightly contortions in the pursuit of strength have furnished much hilarity among his section motes, but he has held steadfast to his objective — a body like Super- man. A Texan by birth and conviction, he vows there is only one place in which to live — Texas. New Orleans, Louisiana Propeller Club . . . " High School Horry " is the only man in the section who wears " shoits " and listens to the " boids choip " . This accent, I am told, is strictly New Orleans. However, in spite of the foreign language he speaks, he is a good Rebel. Being a very nervous Cadet-Midshipman, he doesn ' t hove to move a finger to be the world ' s fastest typist. LOUIS VANCE KLEINSTIVER 361 Port Huron, Michigan Scholastic Award — Windiammers — Rostrum — Third Battalion Commander . . . The one and only star man of the sec- tion, he has hod many honors heaped upon him. He is small of stature, but his voice more than mokes up for it with its throaty tone reminiscent of Charles Boyer. Though small, his ambitions are large, and we feel with confidence that he will achieve his objective — end man in a minstrel show. JOHN LEWIS Mcknight 361 Yadkinville, North Carolina Track . . . One of our most outstanding Romeos, with a manufactured Southern drawl, is John " Whoopee " McKnight. He managed to get through twelve months at the Academy without obtaining more than seven demerits — with the help of his winning smile and smooth line. One girl told him that he had a Ime long enough to hang out a washing for a dozen families. PATRICK JOSEPH NILAN 361 Minneapolis, Minnesota The eldest member of the section, if not the noisiest, never did anything right because left is his favorite direction. His physique is really something to behold — we all feel that he forgot to fake off his life preserver, but he just nods, know- ingly, and remains his own silent self. WILLIAM HARRY OSTER 361 Dayton, Ohio Glee Club . . . Bill, known to many as " Why do I get on report " Oster, hod a knock of always saying the wrong thing at the right time; which netted him mony hours on the extra duty squod. KLEINSTIVER 1» «P ZACHARIE PATRICK THOMAS SULLIVAN 361 Albion, Nebraska Propeller Club — Track — Boxing . . .Our Nebraska representotive in section 361 is " Serpent " Sullivan. Bock in Albion the " Serpent " claimed he was a two-gun tough man, and applied the silent treatment to all his victims. They say he had a way with the women, yes, but far away! Our advice to him is to never put his feet in a box of wet cement. One can ' t swim in that condition! JACK EUGENE WATSON 361 King City, Missouri Scholastic Award . . . Poor innocent watches, alarm clocks, and radios had to bear the brunt of the " Deekeo ' s " prying nature. The only man in the section who spent months trying to put out a cigarette lighter and still have it lit, " Deekeo " never took anything for granted — you hod to show him. He always laughs at his own stories but never at those of anyone else. RALPH VICTOR ZACHARIE 361 River Rouge, Michigan Propeller Club — Glee Club — Boxing, Manager . . . Our " closet romeo " is none other than " Love Boat " Zacharie. He never missed a liberty muster. He attributes the fact that he never cheats at cords to the fact that he never plays cards. His main interests are sailing, singing and boxing. Happy sailing across the oceans of life. PENROSE LUCAS ALBRIGHT 362 Wichita, Kansas Eighteenth Company Commander — Scholastic Award . . . Penrose Albright, otherwise known as " Muscles " , bears the honor of being both the Atlas and the " brain " of the section. He enjoys studying, a fact which is proven by his Scho- lastic Award. It would seem thot such accomplishments would be enough for one mon, but he thought otherwise. His rise in rank to Company Commander is but another proof of his drive and versatility. RUBEN KAHULUI ANDERSON 362 Kapaa, Kauri, Hawaii Ruben Anderson was Hawaii ' s gift to the Cadet Corps. Enhanced with a " happy-go-lucky " manner and a fine ear for music, Andy and his guitar formed the nucleus around which every jive session centered. Among his other sterling quali- ties was his genius at " stuffing " a radio during study hall. We attribute the fact that he was never caught to his wonderful Hawaiian luck. ANDERSON BILLY BOUQUET BELK 362 Port Lavaca, Texas Boxing . . . Billy was our " Rose of San Antonio " , a Texan from way back. He believed emphatically that the earth began and ended with the Lone Star State. Know- ing his ability in the ring, we did not dispute his state- ments. Enhanced with a dry humor, an innocent face, and a veritoble almanac of knowledge on hunting, weap- ons, and farming, Billy was a favorite of all. 207 — r: r r:i tmi 362- RODGER COFIELD DERBY 362 Fayet-teville, North Carolina Track — Wrestling, Manager ... San Mateo, Australia, India, South America, Panama; that ' s the route " Derb " took to reach the Academy, so when he got here he was determined to make the most of his stay. A good student, a star at track, and a mainstay behind the wrestling team, Rodger was a dynamo of activity. A Southerner of the old school, he will long be remembered for his accom- plishments and personality. JOHN HUTT GENTRY 362 Seattle, Washington Glee Club Dance Band . . . " Cookie " has music in his soul, but, unfortunately, it is all jazz. A member of the Codet- Midshipmon Dance Bond from its infancy and also a singer in the Glee Club, John has been very active in Academy octivities. On weekends he found enjoyment in New York ' s night life. Enthusiastic, tenacious, and endowed with a fine sense of humor, we feel he is well eq uipped for life. HARVEY HARRISON HAINES 362 Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania Scholastic Award — Polaris. . . His restless feet having carried him through almost all the States and the eastern South American republics, Harvey was a traveller long before he entered the Cadet Corps. During his sea time he covered both Atlantic and Pacific from England to the Marshall Islands. An engineer by trade, artist by hobby, and gentleman by nature, he is sure to be o success in future days. JOHN SAMUEL THOMAS HAMACHER 362 Washington, District of Columbia Track — Swimming, Manager . . . Johnny hails from Washington, D. C., but it is said that he can coll any ploce on earth his home. An athlete of ability, he distinguished himself by his performances in both intercollegiate and intra-mural track, while serving as manoger for the swimming team. His fovorite pastime was writing and visiting Washington which seems to indicate that his heart belongs to a certain lass there. ROBERT LEE HOLLOWAY 362 Niles, Ohio Cadet Officer — Baseball — Basketboll . . . Bob held two positions of honor in section 362; he wos our only representotive on the varsity basketball team, and he was also our best jitterbug. Strictly a " rug cutter " from away back, Bob was an active participant in every jive session. His renditions of " Please No Squeeza ' do Banana " will haunt us forever. HOWARD STEWART KUSHMAR 362 Detroit, Michigan " Hoibie " , OS he was known to intimates, was a mild-tempered young man who was always ready to give advice on the affairs of the heart. He claimed this right by virtue of experience, but we who suffered from his guidance are o little skeptical of his dealings with cupid. We shall always remember him as one who will do as well in life as in love. t HAMACHER HOLLOWAY on OSCAR NYLE MARTIN 362 Bryson City, North Carolina Boxing Manager — Host Committee . . . " Marty " will always be endeared to us for the enthusiastic reception he gave to each and every joke that was ever told him. Rewarding the most feeble efforts with deep belly laughs, watery eyes, and wild gestulations of pleasure, he soon became a favorite with all the budding " Hopes " and " Bennys " of the section. Good luck, " Marty " . Jiby EDWARD JAMES McBRYDE 362 Detroit, Michigan Ed was one of those modest, unassuming lads who did a lot of thinking and little talking. Perhaps his most outstand- ing characteristic was his tenacity. His general ou+look on life was fairly serious but his wit was always ready to make the most of a humorous situation. Well liked and admired by his classmates, Ed is a fellow ' not likely to be forgotten in future years when the class spreads with the four v»inds. ■bio THOMAS DANIEL McGOVERN 362 New Brunswick, New Jersey Tactful, big-hearted, easy-going, " Dinty " spent his time at Kings Point making friends and collecting demerits. For a while we thought he would be the Academy ' s " mast " champion, but he lost his lead towards the end of his stay. His love of liberty, the Brooklyn Dodgers, and practical jokes insure for him a permanent abode in the hearts of those who knew him. Dllio JOHN LOUIS MONDY 362 Oswego, New York Swimming, Manager . . . " Mohawk " , undoubtedly the most handsome papoose ever to come out of Oswego, is an ardent admirer of Bernard MacFodden and his body building program. One of his great ambitions is to work a crossword puzzle with ink. Master of the acid laconic remark, John campaigned against conversations embracing the abstract by liberally using his talent. We feel that he will become the best engineer in our section. ROBERT CLARK REID 362 Denver, Colorado Track Manager — Scholastic Award . . . Robert Reid, " The Colorado Quiz Kid " , will always be remembered by his section mates when the future brings them face to face with an unexpected electrical crisis. Bob was our genius of the volts and amps. The undying patience and kind attention with which he mode effort to impart his knowledge to us will remain Q grateful memory forever. REINHARDT EUGENE CARL REINHARDT, JR. 362 Washington, Distric t of Columbia Scholastic Award — Track . . . Eugene Reinhardt, alias the " Spider " , came to Kings Point from the Washington Navy Yard, the Navy ' s loss and our gain. Star Man and ath- lete, he was also the Sinatra of the section. His rendi- tions of any popular song to the tune of " Breathless " always invoked shreiks and screams, but whether of de- light or agony we will never know. 209 ■ • •mm ROBERT BRUCE ROCKE ROBERTSON 362 Soap Lake, Washington Seventeenth Company Commander — Scholastic Award . . . Leader, scholar, and politician are the words which best describe the " Right Reverend " Robertson. A conscien- tious, herd working fellow, Robbie used his time well, achieving the coveted title of " Star Man " while guiding the footsteps of the Seventeenth Company. Truly, Robert Robertson has left his mark at Kings Point. ROBERTSON RORAPAUGH RICHARD DONALD RORAPAUGH 362 Baltimore, Maryland Glee Club . . . Dick wos the section ' s " Mon of Looks " . Born of Dutch ancestry, he was blessed with wavy hair, a hand- some face, and a pleasant smile which, when added to his love of good literature and quick repartee, formed a combina- tion that is hard to beat. Dick spent eleven months at sea on the " S. S. Mary Austin " and was never without a " salty yarn " to fill our lighter moments. JAY LINDER SKARNES 362 Minneapolis, Minnesota Cadet Officer . . , Joy was our " esprit de corps " personified. Truly an all around man, " Buck " was equally at home in the classroom, on the dance floor, in the gym, or on the drill field. Never one to take life easy, despite his great size and bulk, he was always to be seen hurrying about the grounds in diligent pursuit of one of his many activities. RICHARD FRANCIS SMITH 362 Howard Lake, Minnesota " Laugh and the world laughs with you. " That was " Rif " Smith ' s motto, and he did his best to live up to it. Always jovial, Dick spread his amiable disposition among all and he has a host of friends to prove it. One of those most grieved to see him graduate was the telephone company, since Dick received endless calls from admirers among the fair sex. ROBERT EDWARD WHITAM 362 Balboa, Canal Zone Swimming — Host Committee . . . Bob ' s room-mates deserve a commendation on their graduation, because living with " Panama " was not conducive to fruitful study. A wit of no mean proportions, he contributed much to the good spirit and morale of his section. At the same time, he p articipated and won all his events in the intercollegiate swimming. Rough, rugged and righteous, Bob is a fellow we shall not soon forget. GEORGE NEWELL WOOD 362 Denton, North Carolina This romblin ' rebel was more to us than just a pal and best friend during our Academy life. Always on the go, always ready for something new, he was not the man who enjoyed killing time. Woody ' s wry sense of humor, combined with his good nature, made him a fine friend. His years here have baen most successful and we know that his future will be even more so. kri !i4ta JOHN ELLIS WOOTEN, JR. 362 Wake Forest, North Carolina Cadet Officer- -Propeller Club. . . " Woot " , a graduate of Wake Forest, was the conservative member of the section. However, he surprised us all by becoming a Cadet Officer late in his training and his ability soon proved itself when he reached the rank of Lieutenant by graduation. One of his outstonding troits was his loyalty, not only to his friends but also to the South and a little girl who lives there. MELNER ROBERT BOND, JR. 367 Mobile, Alabama Cadet Officer — Propeller Club . . . Bob was the one who always tried to interpret the meaning of the vogue statements mode by his classmates, and assist the instructor in clarifying any shady meanings in our studies. He always hod severol college girls on the string, but was wise enough to keep them in separate colleges. He lost much of his southern drawl, but was still eager to " help " his section mates. EUGENE ALLEN BOOTH 367 Butte, Montana Big, good-natured, lovable " Ole E. A . " was really on outstanding fixture of 367. " Gene " come to us via a long siege in the sick bay, but their loss was our gain, and the section just wouldn ' t have been the same without him. As section leader he was unsurpassed and he commanded the utmost respect from his men as he marched them smartly about the grounds. JOSEPH ROBERT CLEARY 367 Lawrenceville, New Jersey Glee Club . . . After returning from sea and arriving at the Acodemy, " Bob " drove o Crosley and joined the Glee Club. His talents were not restricted to Glee Club octivities, however, for he was one of the occupants of " The Vaudeville Room " . Whenever this room was occupied, the radio would be ploying jazz. " Bob " will always be remembered for his faultless advice to the section — " Always draw a diagram " oliiM JAMES EDWARD FITZSIMMONS 367 Los Angeles, California Ed " Sunny Jim " Fitzsimmons, prominent member of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, spread joy and radiated sunshine throughout our lengthy stay at the U.S.M.M.A. As a chorus girl in the " Rockettes " he learned his " Song and Dance " act which he exhibited at morning colisthenics. Being a true Californion, he was olwoys " shooting the breeze " about that famed " Liquid sunshine " . FITZSIMMONS LAWRENCE CLYDE GAYLE, JR. 367 Jacksonville, Florida Cadet Officer — Propeller Club . . . Larry was one of those fellows who had his stripes, lost them, and then regained them again. The latter cose was inevitoble because he was without a doubt the man for the job. Despite his turbulent career as a Cadet Officer he did remarkably well here at the Academy, and we feel safe in soying that he is doing the same at sea now. MITCHELL GORDON Los Angeles, California Polaris, Editor-in-chief . . . With his journalistic talents, well-salted by eight months of sea duty, three months basic school, and five proud months in the Maritime Service at Catalina, our own " John Mosefield " blessed the Academy with his arrival. Thereafter, come lots of studies, discipline and little liberty. Now Kings Point bids him " Good-bye " and sends him bock to seo. WILLIAM KNOLLMAN KNOLLMAN 367 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Basketball Manager . . Bill was the original bundle of energy. How he kept so many irons in the fire simultaneously will always be a mystery. So full of enthusiasm that it was positively discouraging to the rest of us, he was never too busy to lend a willing hand to a classmate. Since he possesses all of the attributes for success, one can only predict smooth sailing for this grand fellow and swell room-mate. DONALD FRANCIS McCONVILLE 367 New Rochelle, New York Propeller Club . . . The smallest man in the section, nevertheless, " Mac " was one of its prominent figures. As a gatherer of all the latest rumors he was unexcelled, but his outstanding quality was his lough. If you don ' t believe it, ask him about " the five demerits " . " Mac ' s " most vivid memory of Kings Point is that night when Welch hod trouble with the hedge, and Booth forgot his hat. JOSEPH NOLAN 367 Chicago, Illinois Basketball ... If you ever wont to know about Chicago, blondes, operations, or probs, " Uncle Joe " will receive you with open arms. He spent most of his time helping classmates, making them lough, or playing jokes on them. Of coures, he was usually a nuisance, but we couldn ' t help laughing with him. Since he is so persistent when he put his mind to something, he will succeed in every endeavor. PAUL POUDEVIGNE 367 Lexington, Missouri Twelfth Company Commander — Baseball ... A stern appearance, backed by a good nature, made Paul a virtual " bogey- man " to his subordinates who weren ' t quite sharp enough to see the latter characteristic in him. He was on extremely efficient cog in making Kings Point ' s first intercollegiate nine one of the best ball clubs. He ended his under-graduate days here admirably by taking a wife on graduation day. We wish him much success. ROBERT DOUGLAS RAWLINS 367 Janesville, Wisconsin Propeller Club — Transportation Committee . . . " Story-teller de luxe " , Rawlins was one of the main cogs of our section. Although we never doubted the integrity of the various and sundry tales of his adventurous life, we sometimes used to wonder. Bob enjoyed the distinction of getting more mail than onyone else in the section. We predict great things for him. McCONVILLE POUDEVIGNE " b, VAN DERWILL WILBUR STEIN 367 Atlanta, Georgia Cadet Officer — Football, Captain — Basketball — Baseball . . . " Bill " Stein has one unusual distinction that will stay for- ever at Kings Point. He was U.S.M.M.A. ' s first football Captain. Hailing from below the Mason-Dixon line, where he quarterbacked Georgia Tech into two Bowls, he helped inaugurate the " Mariner ' s " first successful football season. He married the day he graduated. Congratulations!! JAMES ALBIN TONDER 367 Omak, Washington " Jim " Tonder, Washington State ' s gift to the Cadet Corps, has proved, during our relatively brief time at the Academy, to be that helping hand which has led many a wayward Cadet-Midshipman over the bumps on this bumpy road to scholastic achievement. Hand-in-hand with his quiet nature goes his sound judgment and ability to think things out. We know that Jim will succeed in whatever he does. CALVIN WAYNE VAN DERWILL 367 Bay City, Michigan Glee Club ... Of the many nicknames acquired, some not altogether complimentary, perhaps " C. W. " and " modulated " will stay with him the longest. Anytime you need him in the future, " Van " will probably be found on the bridge of his " T-2 " headed southward. If you don ' t find him on the bridge, just look in his cabin, and you ' ll probably find him telling the youngsters of his class about " modulated carrier waves " . RAY HENDERSON WALTON 367 Ash, North Carolina Crowned with the virtues of being the oldest man in the section, the only lawyer in the Battalion, and having the biggest head in the Regiment, Ray Walton hails from the old North State and is quick and anxious to admit, and apparently even eager to inform anyone who will listen to him, that he is a " Rebel " ! He will make a good seaman. PAUL BAILEY WARE 367 New York, New York Propeller Club, Secretary . . . " P. B. " is a conservative person, except when he argues politics. He took an active interest in the Propeller Club and became the Secretary. After graduation Paul plans to return to Cape Town, South Africa, to take up where he left off in 1942 when stranded there on his way to do overseas construction work in Persia. THOMAS SPENCER WELCH 367 Riverside, Illinois Scholastic Award . . . Propeller Club ... Old " T. S. " came to the Academy with the somewhat dubious dis- tinction of spending six months of his sea time in port and only thirty-two days at sea. Tom fell into the swing of his studies with enthusiasm and became the proud possessor of a Scholastic Star. However, he was glad to trade In his insignia for that half-inch of gold. 213 S£fi:|:J:!):r, DONALD GLENNUR BEISHIR Rockford, Illinois Don ' s ready smile ond infectious good humor mode him one of the best liked fellows in the section. It is said thot he was the first Cadet-Midshipman to go through the Acodemy without accumulating a single demerit. His sincere and ambitious interest in engineering, and his qualities of diligence and mechanical comprehension in- sure him a successful future in the marine field. WILLIAM LEE COLE 368 Coal City, West Virginia Bill is on aggressive fellow who is always successful at whatever he attempts. His congeniality and frankness have made him popular among his classmates, and have gained him friends wherever he has gone. His future is certain to be bright in his chosen profession. ROBERT GRANVILLE CRICKARD JR. 368 Washington, D. C. If the number of friends was at all indicative of success, Bob was surely o success. Never low in spirits, and never without a fine sense of humor, he was a perfect friend. His sound judgment will always gain him the top run. Bob is sure to fulfill oil expectations after graduation. JOHN JOSEPH TERRENCE DORAN 368 Newark, New Jersey Scholastic Award — Propeller Club — Sound-Off . . . Jock was " the little man with the big notebook " . It probably con- tained a list of his women, although he must hove kept a few notes as evidenced by his Scholast ic Star — the only one in the section. Jock undoubtedly will be o success at anything he attempts because of his determination and engineer- ing abilities, as well as his excellent sense of humor and knowledge of human nature. ROBERT WELSH DORSET 368 Baltimore, Maryland Women were his forte; small ones, big ones, 4 .O ' s and 2 .5 ' s — Bob knew them all. The fair sex took half his time; studies the other half. He had several pet philosophies — " Don ' t worry about little things, " " it ' s not what you start, but what you finish, " and, paradoxically, " there ' s nothing as restful as a soft bed. " We all liked him ond ore proud to have been his classmates. RAYMOND DOWNS 368 Binghamton, New York Escort Committee . . . The praises of Binghamton were sung loudly by this lad from the Triple Cities. We heard plenty about the merits of a certoin photogrophic concern where Roy was formerly employed. He probably took more kidding than anyone else in the section, not only about his love for his home town, but also about his little used and disliked middle name, Chuck. p- 1. JOSEPH BARTHOLOMEW DRISCOLL 368 Dorchester, Massachusetts Propeller Club — Radio Club ... To describe him is on eosy matter, since there was only one Joseph Bartholomew Driscoll. " Dris " seemed to hove an affinity for trouble, but generally managed to escape unscathed. The good humor he spread within his section was only surpassed by his uncanny wit. We do not know where he ocquired his chest full of ribbons but if he does as well as en engineer, he will be indispensable to the Merchant Marine. JOHN CHARLES FRASCA 368 Brooklyn, New York The only things that worried our budding " Einstein " were the lyrics of the songs " Yours " and " Love Me, My Pet Bru- nette Love Me " . It ' s too bod because life could have been so simple and sweet for him — but then, every man, at one time or another, has brunette troubles. We will always remember Jock Frasco as one of the best fellows in the section, DONALD RAUB HELM 368 Lancaster, Pennsylvania Escort Committee . Don came to us with several years of marine experience at the Newport News Shipbuilding Compony and a couple more at Lehigh University. It did not take much effort for him to successfully complete his course here. Because of his reserved manner, his subtle humor was only enjoyed by a few. Serious and clear-headed, he ' ll be a success in ony field he enters. LAWRENCE RALPH LALLY 368 East St. Louis, Illinois Propeller Club — Windjammers — Camera Club — Escort Committee . . . Lorry was one of the most conscientious of the Cadet-Midshipmen at the Academy. He knew his abilities and goal ond let nothing deter him from it. He always had a ready smile on his lips and a merry twinkle in his deepset eyes. His water-cooled slide rule, rainbow array of colored pencils, and ambidextrous feat of copying notes with both hands simultaneously were the butts of many jokes. STANLEY J. LUCZEK 368 Indian Orchard, Massachusetts Escort Committee . . . Ston possessed a distinguished character and poise as well as a unique personality. No doubt it was this personality that guaranteed his success with the Escort Committee. He hod many a breath-taking race with the hands of the Control House clock as a result of the extra liberty gained from this activity. Stan ' s excellent engineering ability will certainly bring him great success. ROBERT MOORE MURRAY 368 Galveston, Texas Bob will always be remembered at the Academy for be- ing ten minutes early for all musters. Like many of his classmates, his main antipathy was morning calisthenics, but a friendly gome of football was to his liking. The obsense of some of his room-mates teeth con be attribut- ed to one such game. Undoubtedly, he was one of the most well-liked fellows in the section. ROBERT SCOTT POLLOCK, Jr. 368 Hampton, Virginia Escort Committee . . . Bob, also known as " Robin, " was the type who thought of others first. He became known for his fast trips to Washington with Wodsworth, as well OS for his vim, vigor, and vitolity. Bob was o procticol man, os he demonstrated in all his classes. This charac- teristic is bound to moke him one of the finest in his field of Marine Engineering. i i r ' II ' POLLOCK RAWSON ' , CHARLES EDWARD RAWSON 368 Lincoln, Nebraska Propeller Club — Midships . . . " Chick " , as he was known to us, was quite a character. Many memorable incidents high-lighted his career at Kings Point, He first come to our attention the day the O.D, was frantically seeking him for questioning on the identity of certain mysterious visitors. His roomotes won ' t soon forget his numerous announcements that he was in love. We all have left Kings Point, but none of us will forget " Chick. " CORNELIUS J. SPILLANE 368 Stratford Connecticut Propeller Club — Escort Committee . . . " Corny " ambled in from Strotford, Connecticut leaving behind all seriousness and " years " of gear cutting experience. His ruddy, solemn face, sly grin, and eye for beauty remained unpertrubed in oil calamities. The god, Morpheus, directed most of his free time, but he was also prominent for his stock market propositions and engineering ability. FORREST ELMO STEWART 368 Beaumont, Texas Propeller Club — Radio Club . . . " Stew " was the quiet, studious type. He was the only Cadet-Midshipman to hove a record of perfect attendance in the mess hall. Food wasn ' t his only attraction, however, for it was well known that o certain person from Frisco ottrocted a great deal of his attention. Our " Stew " will be a great engineer ond a fine office in our Merchant Marine. THOMAS RICHARD TUCKER 368 Memphis, Tennessee Tom hod that determination which made him more than an equal for the offerings of Kings Point. From the first day he come to the Academy, his continual cheerfulness and friendly manner have won him a favored place in the hearts of his classmates. He will surely be successful in all his endeavors. GORDON WILLIAM WADSWORTH 368 Pleasant Plains, Staten Island, New York Glee Club — Escort Committee — Radio Club . . . Wodsworth was one of the few who was not satisfied with just getting by. A little gin rummy and prolonged bull sessions kept him just short of o star. Although definitely of the indepen- dent type, his engineering ability, sharpened by a yeor at Stevens Tech, mode him a good source of information on " cram " nights. An affable, intelligent personality, he was well known and liked by all. WADSWORTH Indianapolis, Indiana Escort Committee . . . The Indionopolis tycoon hod a quiet individualism which wos accentuated by his slight touch of what wos opporently sleeping sickness. Wayne Walter was often called Walter Wayne by those who did not know him. This was always a thorn in his side. When it came to the fairer sex, we find that all the girls went for his strong, silent personality. I I JOHN THEODORE ANAGNOST Chicago, Illinois Dance Bond . . . John is " number one man " in his section primarily because of the first letter of his lost name and not his academic standing. It was often noted that John carried more weight around here than most Cadet-Midshipmen. He is on intelligent, level-headed man, ond though his success is assured without our good wishes, we wish him, " all the luck in the world. " ARTHUR CHRISTY BALLAS 373 Brattleboro, Vermont Rowing Team, Regimental Champions . . . After six months at sea Art reported to Kings Point for odvanced training. He continued to shine in athletics as he did at San Mateo. He was a member of the Thirteenth Company boat crew, which won the Superintendent ' s Cup Race, and the Company Basketball Team. Art ' s winning personality and his conscientious- ness toward his work proved to us that he should have little trouble in later life. ERNEST SEARS DAILEY 373 Portsmouth, Virginia Basketball — Winning Crew, Rowing Team . . . " Dit " tra at Son Mateo ond came to Kings Point after his sea time. It soon became evident that he could be classified among the Cadet Corps ' " better seamen. " Some of his other abilities are his smooth gymnastics on the donee floor; his agility at basketball; and his incentive to delve into varied fields of knowledge. SYDNEY GOODMAN 373 Bronx, New York, New York Rifle Company . . . Syd claims our section would not have been complete without a representative from the Bronx. Maybe he was right. He has proven to be likeable, reliable and an all-around athlete. He has been the " brains " of the section, always coming up with the right answers. He was also a mainstay of the Tenth Company ' s Basketball Team. HENRY LOUIS HAMMETT, JR. 373 New Orleans, Louisiana Cadet Officer — Dinghy Team — Rifle Company — Wind- jammers . . . We know " Horn " spent one year at Tulane University before entering the Cadet Corps and, from his activities at the Academy, he must hove spent all of his spore time sailing the bayous of Louisiana. While at the Academy he spent o great deal of his week-ends sailing around the Sound. Utilizing all this training, " Horn " is bound to make a good officer at sea. tm r373 217 - ' • " tm WILLIAM FORBY HAYNES, JR. 373 Orange, New Jersey Vorsity Swimming Team — Rowing Team, Championship . . . Aside from the fact that Bill has depleted the Academy ' s supply of piers and small boats by repeated " attacks " on the waterfront, he has contributed his ex- cellent back-stroke swimming ability to the Academy ' s Swimming Team, He was a member of the Regimental Rowing Crew which captured the Superintendent ' s Cup. Stubborn, he avoided controversial discussions, and ex- hibited a great sense of humor. •B! LEONARD ALPHONSE KING 373 Detroit, Michigan Softball — Basketball . . . Leonard King Is highly responsible for many of the laughs that made our section-life a real enjoyment. His ability in sports is one that cannot be underestimated, since he only too often displayed a masterly touch in basketball, accompanied by a high degree of stamina. Knowing him has been a real and happy experience; one which we of the section shall long remember. CHARLES ANDREW MATLEY 373 Newport, Rhode Island Thirteenth Company Rowing Team, Regimental Champions . . . " Bud " represents that type of American who does most everything well. He is renowned in the section for his alert basketball playing and glib witticisms. Although his success is assured, whatever he might do, he carries with him always the best of everything in the way of luck and good wishes. We know he will prove himself capable in any future positicn. THOMAS JOSEPH McDONNELL 373 Buffalo, New York Tenth Company Commander — Swimming Team — Rifle Company — Glee Club — Propeller Club ... A company commander who could handle a section like 373 should be called a wonder-man; Mac was more than that; he was phenomenal. He not only handled them superbly, but was a port of them. A good all-round man who was actively engaged in numerous activities, he will long stand as a shining example to the company commanders who will follow him. MALCOLM KNOX MclNTYRE 373 Riverside, Connecticut Third Battalion Staff — Dinghy Team — Windjammers — Thirteenth Company Rowing Team, Regimental Champions . . . " Mac " come from old Greenwich, Connecticut, and along with a wealth of knowledge in small boat handling, he brought a delightful personolity and a limitless reserve of good nature. Upon his return to Kings Point, he stepped in as coxswain of the Thirteenth Company Boat Crew and led them to victory in the Superintendent ' s Cup Race. JOHN EDWARD PEPPLER 373 Grand Rapids, Michigan Ninth Company Commander — Rifle Company . . . From his start at San Mateo, " Pep " progressed ever upward until he finally commanded the Ninth Company. His efforts were not limited to Cadet-Midshipmen duties alone. Inter- battalion sports occupied much of his time. Despite these and other extra-curricular activities, he has never failed to champion any cause for his company or section. " Pep " has gained many fast friends. McDonnell • «? ? " - TARTAGLINO VAN METER THOMAS HENRY REILLY 373 Camden, New Jersey Thirteenth Company Rowing Team, Regimental Champions . . . Thomas, or " Red Ryder, " as he was called by his section- mates, because of his " carrot top, " took his basic training at Kings Point. " Red " is well liked because he is quite, hardworking, and has the smile and good humor which made the Irish famous. The section will alwoys remember his frankness and trustfulness, a rare combination. CARLTON RIGGIN 373 Exmore, Virginia Rifle Company — Propeller Club — Rowing Team, Regimental Champions . . . Carl had a decided advantage over us at the Academy, since he had learned mony fundomentols at Sheepshead Boy. While at Kings Point, he attained on of the highest averages in the section. He was a member of the championship Rowing Crew that won the Superintendent ' s Cup; also, a member of the Tenth Company Basketball Team. Carlton is a " big and kind-hearted guy. " ANDREW CHARLES TARTAGLINO 373 Newport-, Rhode Island Thirteenth Company Rowing Team . . . Andy has materially contributed to the spirit and good humor of his section; his quick wit has often overcome unpleasant occurences; his willingness to take a joke, as well as make one, has won for him our respect. He has combined common sense with native ability and produced a personality which will always prove a wonderful asset. ABRAM DE BOIS VAN METER 373 Williamsville, Illinois Third Battalion Commander — Rifle Company — Propeller Club — Chapel Organist . . . After completing his sea duty, port of which he spent as Third Mote, " Von " returned to the Academy.

A possessor of the qualities that moke a gentleman as well as a leader, he has won the admiration and respect of all. ROBERT BURKE BROOKS 374 Corpus Christi, Texas Pro peller Club ... To characterize Bob, just mention that he is a native of that southern republic, Texas. He is every inch Texan, a fact he points out at every opportunity. Thorough in his work, he did everything to the best of his ability. Though not a " Star " man, he could be justly proud of his scholastic average. Bob has made many friends here. JAMES HAL BROWN 374 Huron, Ohio Cross Country — Indoor Track — Scholastic Aword — Glee Club — Propeller Club . . . " Man, you should hove seen the gal I met today! " This dialogue took place almost every Sunday night after liberty. Hoi is one of the old dependables on Kings Point ' s Cross Country and Indoor Track Teams. His ambition is to sail " Chief " on one of those " land-locked " Great Lake boats. ' • •mm • • • " -tm rdT LORENZO IRVING DOW, JR. 374 Lomita, California Scholastic Award — Propeller Club — Ski Club . . . " Red " rated as the only " carrot-top " in our lot. Scuttlebutt hod it that the scorching sun of Southern California caused this. Somehow, he wasn ' t a typical red-head be- cause he lacked that traditional temper. As for as we could find out, he was one of the few cadets not playing the weekend " Casanova, " Perhaps that is one of the reasons for the Scholastic Award. Td JOHN LAWRENCE FIEDLER 374 Glendale, Missouri Propeller Club . . . Although a farmer at heart, hailing from the Corn Belt, we think Larry has the makings of the best " Old Salt " in the section. How he is going to combine 18 holes of golf with roaming the Seven Seas, we haven ' t figured out. " Who has 35 cents, I ' m overtime on the phone! " Yes he was calling that certain someone in New Jersey. RALPH LEON GRIFFIS 374 Wichita Falls, Texas To have known a man like Ralph has been a privilege. His cheerful nature, his interest in any new activity, ond his willingness to help his classmates, have made him a perfect roommatp and an ideal classmate.

SHELDON LOUIS HOCHMAN 374 Newport, Rhode Island Midships, Sports Editor — Sound Off — Glee Club — Propeller Club . . . Once he was clear of the Academy and had his hands on that car of his, " Hitch " was a changed man. He was just a liberty loving person. Since he was engaged most of the time to that certain someone, he could find little time for the boys. His secrete ambition is to open a sales department for " nylon neckties " in Rhode Island. CARL WARD JONES 374 Centralia, Illinois Eleventh Company Commander — Sound-Off — Propeller Club . . . " Jonsey " was the Poul Bunyon of the section, tipping the scale at 117. His ability in handling the female sex is disputed by no one. He proved an exceptional Cadet Mod- shipman, maintaining grades very close to a " Star " overage, and blessing the Regiment as Company Commander of the Eleventh Company. He was a swell se tion-mote and has aquired lasting friends. DANIEL PATRICK KENNEDY 374 Chicago, Illinois Propeller Club . . . " Dapper Dan " was a very easy going person who got along exceptionally well with everyone he met. When anyone said " Huh " to him, he instantly came back with " Sir, " although no one knows why. Don was an " old salt " from way bock, and, with his fine combination of initiative, resourcefulness, and military bearing, we know he ' ll be an excellent officer and a great engineer. RICHARD LITTLEFIELD LANG 374 Catham, Massachusetts Regimental Commander — Scholastic Award . . . When Dick become our Regimental Commander, he arrived at the zenith ot a very successful Codet Officer career, which began soon after he reported to Kings Point.

JOSEPH BECK LOVELL 374 Lynn, Massachusetts Twelfth Company Commander — Track Team — Propeller Club . . . Although Joe waited quite a while before becoming cadet officer, upon his appointment he went right up the ladder to the honored position of Company Commander. This was no surprise to the friends of this energetic and conscientious young fellow. There ' s no doubt that Lovell will be a success in the field of engineering, and his leadership ability will make him a superior officer. DONALD EDWARD MORRIS 374 Piedmont, California Third Bottolion Adjutant . . . Don was the only Cadet-Midshipman in the Cadet Corps that accumulated more sea time in the bath tub than he did aboard ship. As a yachtmon, he came through in the soilboat races and took a close third, but there is a rusty rumor that his ears were luffing or he would hove come in first. GEORGE PODINSKY 374 Lakeland, Florida Glee Club . . . Possessing on admirable disposition, o winning smile and on interest in everyone he met, George made a host of friends in the Regiment. His fondness for singing in the shower kept our deck well supplied with music. His charming manner and powerful physique made him a natural in the dragging life, while his aggressiveness was shown on the athletic field. Wherever he goes and whatever he does, his fellow men can only agree that a good fellow and a good engineer is George Podinsky. JAMES AXFORD PORTER 374 Detroit, Michigan Cadet Officer — Propeller Club, President . . . " Jock " Porter, who hails from the " City of Automobiles and Strikes, " always amazed the section with his " ways and means. " His nickname is often followed by a question mork, when spoken of within the section, because of his air of secrecy about its origin. His fovorite postimes are his jozz records and swimming. JOSEPH THOMAS PRANICA 374 Alhambra, California " Frenchy " is a great lover of " overnights " . He seems to have on uncanny and superb knowledge of the whys and wherefores of the female species, and olso professes to possess o professional golfing ability. Another one of those roys of Colifornio sunshine, " Morgie " was continu- ally radiating with his bright, new stories of hoppenings in California. — rX-r -r: nn 374 221 ' • " tmrST WILLIAM EUGENE RISDON, JR. 374 Mineola, New York Propeller Club — Ski Club . . . The Ford Willie drives will carry fourteen Cadet-Midshipmen, three sea bogs end anything else doring to enter. It ' s smart to stay on the in with our local boys. The section has only one com- plaint against him: those long conversations he and " Hotch " used to hold offer taps, when the rest of the section were trying to sleep. ROBERT ESPAR RUTLEDGE 374 Oakland, California Bob brought with him from California a pleasing personality and o sense of humor which soon made him known among his classmates. He was an easy going person, but when on argument arose criticizing his state, his blood pres- sure increased tremendously. Although never having any difficulties with academics, he managed to run aground fre- quently with the Naval Science Department. His earnestness and clean cut character will crystallize his future dreams. OWEN E. SPRUANCE, Jr. 374 San Antonio, Texas Cadet Officer — Football — Propeller Club . . . Section 374 was very ably represented in the first intercollegiate football In the history of Kings Point, by our own " Spook. " " Spook " hailed from San Antonio in the " Lone Star State, " a fact easily noticed by his Texon drawl. His extra-curricular activities were sufficient to keep him quite active. He was, is, and always will be tops. HARRY WILLIAM STRUNK, JR. 374 Union City, New Jersey Third Battalion Staff — Wrestling Team — Windjammers — Propeller Club — Dance Committee . . . Horry became quite a figure about the Academy when he became a first-class " Jeep " in the Tenth Company. However, he worked up rapidly to the rank of Security Officer on the staff. Rather quiet about the grounds, Horry was at heart, one of the foremost liberty hounds here — the first out on Saturday and the last in on Sunday night. ERNEST GEZA TOTH 374 Dilltown, Pennsylvania Propeller Club . . . Ernie hailed from Pennsylvania, but, apparently, his foster home was Detroit. To his associates he was known as " the brains behind the General Motors Corporation. " He was also acquainted with such activities as mining cool. Drawing was his favorite subject, but he did equally well in all his studies. Ernie will be remembered for his excellent job as section leader and for his pleasant disposition. HENERY ZNAMIROWSKI 374 Baltimore, Maryland Scholastic Award — Propeller Club . . . " Zoni ' s " quiet appearance and still quieter manner gave little indication to an outside observer that he was the brain of our section. His opinion was frequently sought in all machanicol matters. He was no book worm though, and could never be accused of being eager. His favorite subject while at the Academy was " women " or rather one woman. SPRUANCE ZNAMIROWSKI ' fe: H n - ,1 m 1 i0- •f9 ?

He was a plebe at Pass Christian and while there held the rank of Battalion Commander. At sea he served aboard a tanker and made trips to South America and the Pacific. He has hopes that soon there will be ventilated coffee for every engineer. JOHN DAN 380 Indianapolis, Indiana A willingness to help others v ill always be associated with John ' s personality. His well-kept and extensive notes, and his unusual memory helped many section-motes go through the rough spots. John ' s belief in physical as well as men- ial improvement prompted his daily workouts. John ' s love of the Academy, and earnest ambition, will moke him hard to keep down when the going gets rough. JOSEPH CHARLES DIECIDUE 380 New Orleans, Louisiana lb aid Track — Cross Country . . . " Dash, " as he was known here, wos the manager of our well known trock team. Life at the Academy fulfilled his every dream. He must hove been on the ball because he received no demerits while here. As for military bearing, he claims he never heard of it.

" Beaver " entered Kings Point to start along the rood toword engineering on June 12, 1944. His section was the first to begin the new two year course. Prior to his entry into the Cadet Corps he was employed by the Bethlehem Steel Compony as a radio technician. He spent his sea time on the Madawosko Victory. He returned here on April 13, 1945 to take up the lost lap of his training. RICHARD FROTSCHER MULLER JR. 380 New Orleans, Louisiana Propeller Club — Windjammers . . . Dick was very proud of his heritoge; of being o " Southern Gentleman " , and that his great grandfather fought in the bottle of Mobile Bay. He was well known in his section as being decidedly on the conscientious side and exhibiting great endeavor in all his undertakings. His main interests were sailing, hunting and sports, in which he was very proficient. ROBERT WILSON PRAY 380 Oakland, California Cross Country — Cadet Officer . . . Robert hails from California, and likes everyone to know it. Starting his career May 1, 1944 ot Son Matteo ond spending six months aboard a tanker, he arrived at the Academy dripping with salt. He fell into the routine of o model Cadet-Midshipmon quickly. He became the Second Battalion AAorale Officer, working on their dances and sports activities. He was often teased about his love for potatoes. MATTHEWS ' 1 DEAN FRANKLIN ROSS 380 State College, Pennsylvania Windjammers . . . Dean was born in the small town of Center Hall in the Quaker stote. He graduated from Center High School at the age of 15 and finished two semesters at Pennsylvania State College. His main problem, while at the Academy, was how to live on 65 dollars a month. He specialized in having a good time on the week-ends and doing as little work as possible during the remainder of the week. DON GEORGE SEMLER 380 Kenmore, New York Scholastic Award — Windjammers — Camera Club . . . Don was born in Buffalo, N. Y., where he spent most of his early days. His pre-Acodemy education was obtained at Kenmore High School and Tri-Stote College. While here his main interests were week-ends and souped up cars. However, he occasionally indulged in sailing, photography and rebel- baiting. Although not a member of the track team, he held the section one-quarter mile record of thirteen minutes and 38 seconds. It was also rumored that he applied for the Purple Heart for wounds received while dueling for seconds in the mess hall. HARRY SIMON 380 Gramercy, Louisiana Horry came to the Academy fresh from high school and made everyone like him from the beginning. He always met the bod breaks with a smile, and never let the system get him down. Horry has proven to be very consistent and relia- ble, ever-neat in appearance and always willing to help others. Shipmates will find him an interesting companion and a real friend. JOHN KNAUFF SKELLEY 380 Los Angeles, California Scholastic Award — Glee Club — Track — Cross Country . . . John was born and raised a Colifornian. His Academy life was somewhat miserable because he occumuloted a great many demerits (through no fault of his own, of course!). He did manage, however, to get a Scholastic Star at the end of the twelve weeks. His major interest was sports, and though he failed to make o letter in track, he did try. His major hobby was choral singing (specializing in bar room and shower harmony) . SIMON TAFLAN Basketball — Softball — Rifle Company . . , Wherever a crowd was gathered you ' d be sure to find Sy as the center of attraction imitating some outstanding personage at the Academy, or hotly defending his beloved Ohio against derog- atory remarks by foreigners who claimed they hod been there and seen it too. As we seek new and broader horizons a steady course will be steered by Sy, a loyal and sincere friend to all hands. THARRINGTON Bridgeport, Ohio SIDNEY OTIS THARRINGTON 380 Rocky Mount, North Carolina Rifle Company . . . Sid begon his seafaring career by taking basic training at Pass Christian. However, the climax of his training come later at the Academy. Dur- ing the first term here, he occumuloted quite o few de- merits, in fact, he was among the highest in his com- pany. He participated in Rifle Company activities and OS result of this has been ridiculed by his classmates for his dislike of unmilitory bearing. ' " tm r B 225 JAMES CHARLE S TOOMER JR. New Orleans, Louisiana 380 " Boomer " wos a violent enthusiost at all of the Mariner ' s football games. His Academy life was just about over- age. That is the average number of girls in his black book; average in extra-curriculor activities and overage in grades. However, don ' t let the average fool you! As an engineer, his ingenuity is superior. If you don ' t be- lieve it ask him about the eels at his Pass Christian shrimp trapping center. VICTOR ARNOLD WALTER JR. Gretna, Louisiana Propeller Club — Softball — Basketball . . . Vic took his basic training at Pass Christian, after which he spent 6 months on a tanker. He was on excellent student and wos always on hand willing to help a section-mote with a problem, aca- demic or otherwise. He played all intra-mural sports for his company. His pastime consisted of just taking life eosy. Vic was a good-notured red-heod and one of the most popular fellows in his section. MARK HAINES WINNER JR. 380 Rochester, New York Propeller Club — Midships — Windjammers — Glee Club — Cross Country . . . Mark comes from Florida. He attended Tampa University and was employed os a designer before a five man board ( " advisers " he calls them) decided he should choose another occupation. He promptly joined the Cadet Corps and has not regretted it. He preferred brown eyed brunettes of the 120 pound class. His favorite sports were tennis, sailing and football. A section notable, Mork was chosen the Cadet-Midshipman whose hairline was most likely to recede. WILLIAM VINCENT WOLFE Toledo, Ohio Midships — Glee Club . . . William Wolfe enjoyed Kings Point and Kings Point enjoyed him, for Bill is one of those good natured Irishmen who tokes life as it comes and enjoys it to the utmost. Although active socially. Bill still managed to keep his head above the foam ocademicolly. CARL TAGE BERGLUND 385 Omaha, Nebraska Ninth Company Commander — Scholastic Award — Propeller Club — Rifle Company . . . Dependability, clear thinking and an unwavering sense of fair ploy hove earned for this sea-going product of the midwest a high position in the eyes of his section motes and a general reputation as on all around good fellow. We predict thot this atomic cornhusker will go for in the Merchont Marine. JACK ELMER BERGLUND 385 Oswego, Oregon Propeller Club — Midships . . . Jack had one weakness, that of craving big, thick, juicy steaks. During his summer at the Academy he did considerable sailing, but olwoys seemed to prefer pulling the boot to the starting line, thus win- ning the roce. His best trait was that of being punctual to everything, especiolly chow ond the sock. He keeps with oil the traditions of a seafaring man. .1 BERGLUND, C. BERGLUND, J. ™ ■ JNSs. WILLIAM BERNAUER 385 Kansas City, Missouri " Deacon " was one of the many members of the section who took things as they came and was always ready to help the section whenever he was needed. He is the fortunate possessor of utter self-confidence and a philosophic outlook upon life. Discarding all setbacks and past mistakes, he never fails to come with a clean slate and the retort, " Well that ' s the way it goes . . . " HECTOR BRAVO 385 Los Angeles, California Hector was one of the more active members of the section, always ready for □ game. His energetic efforts were radi- ated throughout the section and helped to create an atmosphere of cooperation and friendship. His week-end adven- tures were kept a secret. However, he did not keep those tall tales of the sea to himself. We of the section wish him lots of luck. ANTON FRANK BUCZEK JR. 385 Grand Rapids, Michigan Always a shining light in 385 ' s academic achievements, this crew-topped lad from the Wolverine State hit hard and fast throughout his training to graduate well in the top half of his class. Repeated difficulties in pronunciation of his name resulted in variations from " Bucsok " to " Bunk-check " and many instructors were mystified by that tongue- tying " cz " combination. lib CHARLES BUTLER 385 Oakland, California Charles brought with him from California a pleasing personality and a sense of humor which soon made him known among his classmates. He was an easy going person, but when on argument arose criticizing his state, his blood pres- sure increased tremendously. Although never having any difficulties with academics, he managed to run aground fre- quently with the Naval Science Department. His earnestness and clean cut character will crystallize his future dreams. 011 JOE YOUNG CHRISTIAN 385 Wilmington, North Carolina Transportation Committee . . . Joe was one of the most popular boys in the section and was known for his expressions that originated in the very deep South. The biggest day of 1945 for Joe was when he met a certain girl in Great Neck. His spare time was usually spent in the gym where he could be seen hard at work with the weights, or on the basket- ball courts. ROGER EDWARD COSGROVE 385 Kennebunk, Maine " Cos " was of such a nature that life seemed a great joy at all times. He believed in introducing himself to whomever he met and became ocquainted with many people. Often this extended to such limits that it seemed impossible for one person to know so many people. Cos ' tales of Maine ' s cold weather made a few Northerners dubious, and scared many a Southerner bock to Dixie. tm r3S5 111 nmi 3S5 SAMUEL BENTU DAVIES 385 Wheeling, West Virginia Propeller Club — Escort Committee . . . Mention West Virginia and the broad grin will spread over " Pops " face. He mode himself known to oil by being blessed with the uncanny ability of always doing the right thing. Ambitious ond industrious, his tireless efforts paved the way for his academics. Still he found time to attend most of the social events, each tim e dragging a different girl from his bevy of women. GEORGE JOHN DEMMIE 385 Chicago, Illinois Camera Club . . . While at sea, George was ordered by his Captain to take over the Purser ' s job. This bit of experi- ence had a very pronounced effect on George. Ever since, he has token great delight in extorting sums of money from his section mates for such things as Christmas cards, capacity plans, informal photographs, etc. He was well known in the section for his timely excursions to sick bay just before a training cruise. CLARENCE RAYMOND DERRICKSON 385 Milford, Delaware Propeller Club — Dance Band . . . This Delaware gentleman arrived at Kings Point with a high spirit and an eagerness to moke the most of his training. He showed a willingness to abide by even the strictest regulations and proved Q good sport on the playing field. His comical nature during the most depressing parts of our training gave an uplift to the entire section. BILLY DYER GOLDEN 385 Jackson, Mississippi Bill, coming from ' ole Mississippi, was quick in adapting himself to the system. Endowed with a wonderful sense for mechanics he would hove breezed through the engine course as easily as he did the deck course. Almost any night you could find Bill, books untouched, pipe in one hand, leisurely thumbing through the pages of a magazine or catching up on his all important correspondence. WILLIAM PAUL KENNEDY 385 Scranton, Pennsylvania Basketball . . . Bringing with him to Kings Point a conscientious nature coupled with a " Don ' t Tread on Me " spirit of fairness, Bill proved himself to be a man outstanding in character and leadership. His ever present sense of hum or and devil-may-care air were invaluable assets. A persevering loyalty to the Cadet Corps and class-mates has won Bill a permanent place in the hearts of his associates. EDWIN ARTHUR MALLOY 385 Stamford, Connecticut Ed was easy-going in most matters, however, he proved himself quite capable of upholding his opinions. He moved in a sphere of true conservations and found it difficult to justify Spike Jones ' s or Roy Acuff ' s existence. One of his main attributes was ironic humor which he used liberally upon those of us who returned from the sea with the usual salty stories. DERRICKSON I :. ' ; " «»i MARDIKOS NICHOLAS MARDIKOS kS MARDIKOS 385 Staten Island, New York Nick was an idealist who sorrie day hopes to see his dreoms come true. He continually endeavored to build up his mental and physical capabilities to cope with all conditions. His abundance ot common sense and other fine qualities will carry him along with his peers and subordinates. The Merchant Marine is fortunate in adding an officer of his colibre to its roster. DAVID WALKER PARRISH JR. 385 Bristol, Tennessee piift Basketball . . . While in training on the McAllister, Dave served as Bosuns ' Mate and chief interpreter and stenog- rapher to Bosun Anderson, Dave came into the folds of 385 when 289 was disbanded, and proved to be a welcome addition to our section. During his sea time on the McAllister, Dave always seemed to be on lookout watch. He didn ' t mind this except when it was cold. BERNARD CHRISTIAN RUMMEL 385 Pensacolo, Florida Propeller Club . . . " Will " is one of those gentlemen who hail from the deep South, but the one thing that mode living with him possible was that he was educated in the North. One of his more obvious idiosyncrasies was a streak of stub- bornness that made all debates end with nothing gained. In all, he was a great help to the section during our stay at the Academy. DONALD ORD SHERMAN 385 Honolulu, T. H. Rifle Company . . . When Don first set foot on the grounds of Kings Point, he hod his objective well in mind and has since that time proceeded to conquer all that the Academy hod to offer. However, his nature never prevented his helping a classmate who was ailing in academics. Aside from his more serious nature, Don exhibited a wonderful sense of humor, which did not folter during his stay here. JOHN FINLEY SMITH. JR. 385 Lutherville, Maryland John ' s nickname " Super " is contributed to his quality of being small but powerful. He could be found in the midst of any argument, and was happiest when disagreeing with anybody on any subject. No matter what the topic of the altercation, Smitty always sprinkled his viewpoint with humor and intelligence. We are sure that Smitty will moke a fine sea coptain. WILEY WATTS STANFORD 385 PineApple, Alabama Whether it was " a feast, a frolic or o fight " , or the practical aspects of the Academy life, Wiley met them all in his stride. Whenever on impromptu songest was in session, Wiley ' s masculine voice was in there blending. If you ever cared to indulge in a serious argument, whether on the Civil War or religion, Wiley with his remarkably logical philosophy, was the man to see. tmi SSS RAIFORD HERSCHEL TILLMAN Surrency, Georgia " Till " orrived from sea with very salted habits, a Georgia accent, and a pronounced eagerness to relate hero stories, not only his own but also others. He proved to us that o buffer is much the same os o plough. He did not find the food here quite like his mother ' s, but we notice that either his clothes shrank or some supernatural event caused them to be too small. RALPH ESTEBAN VELASCO 385 San Anl-onio, Texas Ralph hod the rare honor of being o member of the " Lucky Seven " which wos composed of those Cadet-Midshipmen who were among the last graduating sections of the one year course. _ His sea time at the Academy included the Wosh- ington trip on the McAllister, the Boston trip on the American Mariner, and several days on the William Webb, His stories were as tall as they were amusing. WILLIAM T. MITCHELL Special San Francisco, California Although Cadet-Midshipman William T. Mitchell was graduated with the final group of men to receive the one year course of advanced troinmg, he was by for senior to any of them, insofar as time in the Cadet Corps was concerned. He has spent five years as a Codet-Midshipman in the United States Merchant Marine Cadet Corps, three and a half years of which, as a prisoner-of-war in the Philippines. It was chiefly because of this that he is so well known to all his fellow graduates, despite the fact that he began his active training in the Cadet Corps long before most of these men donned the uniform of the service. By the time war had been declared Cadet-Midshipman Mitchell hod already finished his preliminary training OS an engine Cadet-Midshipmon, and as a Third Classman hod started his sea training aboard the SS Copillo. This period OS Third Clossman, normally six or eight months, was to extend over a much greater period of time than either Cadet-Midshipman Mitchell or the Cadet Corps anticipated. On December 8, 1941 the SS Copillo was sunk by Japanese bombers during an attack on Corregidor Harbor. The following morning Cadet-Midshipman Mitchell embarked on the lost boot to leave Corregidor for besieged Manilla. At Manilla Mitchell was interned by the Japanese Army as a prisoner-of-war, and assigned to the prison camp at Santo Thomas University, where he remained for the next year and a half. He was loter transferred to the famed Los Bonor Concentration Camp. Here he spent the following two years, sharing those infamous atrocities, now so well known to all of us, with his fellow prisoners, the survivors of the famed Botoon Death March and the men who defended Corregidor. On February 23, 1945 Cadet-Midshipman Mitchell was liberated by American Paratroopers. After his libera- tion he resumed his course of study with the Cadet Corps. He first returned to Son Mateo for a refresher course, and then to sea in order to familiorize himself with marine power plants. Mitchell then returned to Kings Point as a " special " for his advanced training in marine engineering. On Friday, May 3, 1946 Cadet-Midshipman Mitchell ' s belated graduation finally took place, completing his five years with the Cadet Corps, the longest period of time, it might be added, that any Cadet-Midshipman spent in the Corps. It seems only fitting that Cadet-Midshipman William Mitchell should have graduated with the final group of those men who will always be remembered as " the wartime graduates of Kings Point. " i 230 } }l!JfDi)Ji})Pil3 1 .MOa Midships is pleased at this time to bring up-to-date the list of graduates of the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

This is symbolic of the traditions cherished by all men who " Go down to the sea in ships " , and it was with an eye to keeping these traditions alive that the Windjammers Sailing Club was formed some three years ago. The Windjammers have a fine club house, complete with salon, galley, and sail loft. Ad- joining the house is a pier around which their members meet to discuss the finer arts of the sport and put their knowledge and skill in practice. They have at their disposal a fine fleet of sailing croft, including ten two-man dinghies and one of the finest sailing grounds in the country. Long Island Sound. The Club has built its own traditions and has made fine records in competitive sailing. Rear Row: W. MORRISON, F. BERG, J. ENZEN- SPERGER, J. BERGFORD, W. FINK, E. FERBER, W. McCLAFFERTY.

The Board consisted of Senator Cordon of Oregon and of Representatives Bland of Virginia, Keogh of New York, Bradley of Michigan, and Hole of Maine, The Congressmen followed a busy schedule. Starting early on the tenth, they took part in the morning colors ceremony and then entered into a long conference with the Superintend- ent and the Administrative Staff, in which the future plans for the Academy were discussed. The conference concluded, the Board repaired to Delano Hall where they had luncheon as the guests of the Regiment. The afternoon was consumed in a tour of the grounds, after which the Congressmen went to the Cadet-Midshipman Lounge where they met and talked with their constituents. The morning of the eleventh was again spent in conference and was followed by a Regimental Review which culminated the visit.

Together with the band, the Glee Club brings us the best in musical talent that the Regiment has to offer. Ever since its in- ception in 1 943 the Glee Club has always been heard at every Regimental function, always entertaining us with finely done choral rendi- tions of every type.

This expertly trained group of men, under the capable leadership of Lieutenant (jg) Norton Spurr, have done much to spread the fame of Kings Point, not only by their fine appearance on the field, but also when stand- ing Honor Guard at the athletic events and at the War Memorial. The team is open to all those Cadet-Mid- shipmen who handle a rifle well enough to qualify, and who are willing to spend long hours on Kendrick Field with a Springfield on their shoulder, continuously practicing march- ing in order to obtain that proficiency in the manual of arms which has always distin- guished our Rifle Company.

In 1943, Kings Point was chartered as the 86th Port of the Propeller Club. Our branch is one of about twenty-five similar Junior Ports, which are located at prominent Universities and Colleges. The Club was one of the first extra-curricular activities at the Academy, and fittingly so, because by being a Junior Member of this organization, we get to know something more about the great industry into which we will soon enter. The various activi- ties provided us with means of coming in con- tact with the leaders of the Maritime Industry, and of talking over with them the problems that face the industry, and the way in which they are being solved. The Club meets once a week, in their own Club House, to hear speakers, view new and interesting films, or for a business meeting. -( t or w f.f %.% THE n m 1 Lett to right storting in reor: JOHNSON, HURLOCK, STRUNK, RUTLEDGE, Moc- ARTHUR, HOCKMAN, PREMICK, SPRUANCE, ELLISON, KEENAN, MORRISON, B.

These Cadet- Midshipmen are always on hand, both during the week, and yes, even during liberty hours on week-ends, ready to welcome the stranger to Kings Point. The Committee was formed with one aim in mind, that of providing visitors to the acad- emy with a friendly welcome and assistance in every possible way. Under the capable chairmanship of Cadet-Midshipman Robert Keenan it has achieved this purpose, and dur- ing the course of performing its many duties it has certainly created much good will towards the Regiment of Cadet-Midshipmen.

Not one Regimental function passes without the familiar sight of flash bulbs going off, proving that at least one member of the Camera Club is there, getting pictures from every possible angle. In future years th members of the Regiment will be able to look at these photos, and reminiscence about these many months spent at Kings Point, for then, even every-day events will bring to us more happy memories than we now think possible. Altogether, the Camera Club is one of the Academy ' s most widely known and useful activities. Left to DINGER, JARVIS, rigtit, tear tow: KAUFFMAN, KUN- RESCHENBERG, RIGBY.

Proudly boasting a fine membership of forty- seven men, the club holds regular meetings within the confines of the Radio Laboratory in Bowditch Hall. Here our would-be Marconies have at their disposal the finest of equipment, including a most up-to-date Marine trans- mitter and receiving set and all other neces- sary apparatus. The club is headed by Cadet- Midshipman B. Mathias, the President, and Cadet-Midshipman Essig, Vice-President. Two other positions of honor have been established, that of Secretary held by Cadet-Midshipman R. Hardcastle and Sergeant-at-arms held by Cadet-Midshipman T. Knee. r: ' HE Philosopher ' s Club is the newest of the extra cur- ricula r activities at Kings Point, but in its short exist- ence it has become a strong fixture in academy life. Hold- ing its meetings every two weeks in the Officer ' s Lounge in the basement of Bowditch Hall, the club studies the con- cepts of thought as derived by such great philosophers as Plato, Socrates and Aristotle. With this basic concept as a meter of philosophical points, round-table discus- sions ore held in the informal manner of a seminar, thus enabling the members to pre- sent their own thoughts and opinions for further discussion and analysis. Each of the philosophers is studied accord- ing to the chronological order in which his teachings influenced the thinking of man- kind. His principles and theories of life ore explained by the moderator and exemplified by readings from his works. When an under- standing of the basic ideas contained therein have been reached by all, the meeting be- comes an open forum, each member contribut- ing his own impressions. Although formulated and established for the particular benefit of the Cadet-Midship- men, the club soon became popular with the instructors and department heads of the acad- emy, many of whom are regular attendants at the meetings. Judging from the fine start it has made, it seems a certainty that the Philosopher ' s Club is destined to become the center of liberal arts development at Kings Point.

Skilfully coached by Lieutenant Condon, U.S. M.S., a fine squad was assembled and de- veloped and an ambitious program set before them. The team proved worthy of the compe- tition. Against such formidable opponents as Columbia, Harvard, West Point, Princeton, New York University, Rutgers and the New York Athletic Club, they succeeded in winning six out of the ten debates, showing up equally well in defeat as in victory. The topic of discussion was the National issue, " Resolved that the United States should adopt a compulsory military training as a per- manent peace time policy. " The team de- fended both the affirmative and negative points of view in different debates, thus real- izing a complete and thorough understanding of the issue. The success of the past season insures the continuance of the Debating Team as a per- manent Academy Activity. We feel sure that the future will see many a Kings Point squad reaping honors at the speakers platform. The team in action. JN setting forth the policy of Polaris, its ed- itors and writers are primarily aware that it is the official organ of the Cadet Corps, and that the magazine ' s objective is to record for public recognition the purposes, growth, and success of the United States Merchant Ma- rine Cadet Corps and its Academy. To suc- ceed properly in fulfilling its aim Polaris rec- ognizes these responsibilities: It must gather from all parts of the world the material which most concerns the Cadet Corps. It must not only gather and print this ma- terial but also determine and convey its sig- nificance. It must recognize and introduce personali- ties who hove contributed to the Cadet Corps and to the Merchant Marine as a whole. It must command the enlivened interest of the Cadet-Midshipmen, graduates of Kings Point, and all readers in other spheres of American life who will turn to Polaris as the official publication of the Corps. it must maintain the highest standards of literary art and encourage to the fullest the Rear Row: J.

To carry out these policies the staff of Po- laris is organized as follows: General responsibility lies with the Editor- in-Chief and the Managing Editor for the su- pervision, make up, and layout of the maga- zine. Other editors are the News Editor, the Advertising Manager, the Sports Editor, the Art Editor, the Photography Editor, the Cir- culation Manager, the Office Manager, and the Business Manager. Under each of these editors is a staff of men of which the News Staff is the largest. All Polaris members are volunteers and the work on the magazine is done by Cadet-Midshipmen in their free time. Not only does POLARIS represent the work of First and Second Classmen at the United States Merchant Marine Academy but it also contains two sections devoted to the Cadet Schools at Pass Christian, Miss, and Son Mateo, California. This material is gathered and written by 4th Class Cadet-Midshipmen at their respective Cadet Schools. The POLA- RIS Staff at Kings Point is made up of many of these Cadet-Midshipmen who contributed to the magazine during their 4th Class train- ing. In recognition of the importance of the Cadet Schools and of the efforts of the Cadet- Midshipmen who contribute to POLARIS from them, two issues each year are published with the Cadet Schools as their central theme. The Board of Governors of Polaris is a group of officers whose duty it is to control the pol- icies and organization of Polaris and approve any changes made in these. They also ap- prove each issue before it goes to press and again before publication. The Board of Gov- Raymond L. Grismer, Jr Editor-in-Chief ernors is composed of the following officers of the Academy: The Deputy Superintendent, The Executive Officer, The Secretary of the Academic Board, The Regimental Officer, The Officer Advisor and The Officer in charge of the Print Shop. The Editors of Polaris act in on advisory capacity. Since the first issue in 1942, when the pres- ent publication was born as on 8 page news- paper, Polaris has never ceased to keep step with the Cadet Corps and Academy, growing with them, and it is the belief of the Cadet- Midshipmen who write the magazine that this growth and progress has only begun. The ob- jectives Polaris seeks are difficult to attain, but men who follow the sea traditionally are faced with challenging tasks, and are most satisfied only when they have accomplished them. 255 T lUJDSlJJPij fVIIDSHIPS, 1946, is the third " Log Book of JJJ the Graduating Classes " to be published by the Cadet-Midshipmen of Kings Point, and, if effor t, talent, cooperation, and honest hard work are any criterion, it will be well worthy of its two predecessors. First plans for MIDSHIPS 1 1 1, as it has been known to its staff, were laid nearly a year ago in the old staff offices on the top deck of the Derby House, now a fond memory. Even be- fore the dummy of the preceding edition had been approved by headquarters, the contract for the photographs of the graduates was let to Mr. Fields of the Delma Studios, and work on the book began. " Rosie " — Harris Rosen- dahl of Iowa — and Gene Loose, who succeeded him as Editor-in-Chief, held long conferences as they planned a complete reorganization of the staff to permit more efficient work. Edi- torially, the development of the book was frought with trials and tribulations. Every weekday during the early foil, Mr. Cambell, the photographer, came out to " pose " our graduates, while the staff went silently mad trying to round up the reluctant " models " and get them to meet their appointments.

Page allotments and format for the new book were tentatively set up in October and November, and the staff put out the First Kings Point Calendar in December, just before Christmas leave. In January, after much palaver and " mind- changing " , the staff decided to turn for the printing of the book to Fred and Frank Ball, of New City Printing Company, who had printed the first two editions of MIDSHIPS, and work began in earnest. Mrs. Don Oatley, of Great Neck, spent long hours with the Editorial De- partment heads planning layouts and designs, assisted in the sketching department by her husband. Walter Grego, who had succeeded Gene Loose upon the latter ' s resignation in November, now retired from the post of Editor- in-Chief himself, and John Vitas assumed con- trol of the staff for the month until his gradu- ation in March. That month several of our staff received their diplomas, and the vacan- cies were filled by members of the following class, who are still on the job. John Diebold succeeded Bob Dorsey as head of the Editorial Department, Cecil Jones moved up to Manag- ing Editor, and Gerald Davis assumed the job of Editor-in-Chief, with its attendant trials and tribulations. By the end of March, copy was moving to the printer in a steady flow; the darkroom staff, under John Kauffman, who succeeded Edmund Morgan, was kept busy supplying proofs and crop work; and Bob Strompf ' s Lay- out Department became a " makeup " depart- ment as galleys were returned. The cover design was planned and approved, and a ten- tative deadline of July first was set for all copy. However, paper and cover material shortages made it impossible to meet the deadline, with the net result that we relaxed during summer leave and returned to put the final touches to the book in July and early August. And so to press! In the midst of all this hectic work, the busi- ness staffs worked steadily on, unruffled by the madness all about them. In December of last year the Circulation Department amazed us all by shipping 1500 copies of MIDSHIPS We rorely saw CECIL JONES, our Monagino Editor, like this!

Dave King was succeeded by Edward Gdll as Business Manager upon the former ' s grad- uation. Another MIDSHIPS is completed and pub- lished, and the staff turns to the next edition, to start the whole gruesome process over again.

We wish to point out thot Joe Gish in no way represents any particular mem- ber of the Cadet Corps. The incidents described have been drawn at large from the experiences of the Cadet-Midshipman now ot the Academy. None, except possibly the writer, could do that many things the wrong way! «« r)E a ship ' s officer! Inquire from the U. S. Mari- ZJ time Commission, Washington 25, D. C. " This was the legend on a pleasing poster that met the eye of a typical American boy, Joe Gish, as he stepped into a bus one day, and, being a gullible soul, Joe inquired, applied, and was accepted into Uncle Sam ' s Merchant Marine Cadet Corps. At nine forty-five one morning, some weeks later, we find Joe strolling nonchalantly in the general di- rection of the District Supervisor ' s office. The orders that he had received, which now lay in one of the many pockets of his collegiate attire, stated that he should report promptly at 9:00 A. M. to the office of the District Supervisor. However, to Joe the fact that he was forty-five minutes late meant nothing, forty- five minutes being a negligible amount of time. Therefore, Joe continued lackadaisically, viewing and admiring the metropolitan city, and wondering how much further he hod to walk, for he felt exceptionally tired on this particular day. At last our aspiring young Captain sighted the Dis- trict Supervisor ' s Office, and entered, expecting to be greeted personally by a Commodore — well, at least an Ensign, However, to his amazement, the office was deserted but for one yeoman. Upon sighting Mr. Gish the latter individual promptly growled, " Log in, mis- ter. " Joe whirled around to make way, for he thought a piece of lumber was being carried into the office. 260 However, the doorway remained deserted. Mr. Gish decided that this yeoman must be a wise guy who should be put in his place. The proper treatment for a wise guy is to ignore him completely. This theory in practical application proved rather difficult to carry out, for the yeoman suggested in a slightly louder and more annoyed tone, " Log in, mister, " this time using a long and authoritative forefinger further to emphasize the point. The forefinger pointed to nothing more impressive than what would have been, in Joe ' s language, a guest register. The affair of the log book having been satisfoc- r O- torily settled, Joe presented his orders to the yeoman. This immediately brought fresh wrath down upon his head. From the ensuing torrent of words, Joe learned that tardiness was definitely frowned upon by the Cadet Corps. 261 Next in the course of events, Joe found himself out in the street with a formidable list of errands to be performed. First on this agenda was to get a " crew " type haircut. The prospect of having his golden locks shorn did not meet with his approval at all, but orders were orders. After the ordeal at the barber shop, he was to proceed to the photographer ' s studio. " My gosh, and with all my hair gone, too, " mourned poor Joe. The photos duly token, Joe decided it was time to have lunch. After lunch our hero hurried back to the studio for his official photos. His consternation knew no bounds when he gazed upon his own likeness, as portrayed by the photographer. His face must have displayed some trace of his emotions, for he found a belligerent photographer leering down at him and demanding in a nasty tone of voice, " Well, is there something you don ' t like about them? " Observing the size of this human questionnaire, Joe decided that they were indeed very nice pictures. Having completed these and many more errands, Mr. Gish made haste to report back to the District 262 Supervisor ' s Office on time, for he had no wish to re-enact the scene of his morning ' s entry. On his return to the office, Joe found quite a large group of prospective ship ' s officers also waiting. These were the boys who had reported on time in the morn- ing and had been sent on their errands before Joe ' s somewhat tardy arrival. Next, Joe and his new-found companions were transported from the District Supervisor ' s Office to the School in a converted truck. They were met at the gate by a large number of Cadet-Midshipmen who commenced to heckle the newcomers. Upon the arrival of a small but voluble Cadet Officer, the noise miraculously subsided, and under his command, Joe and his newly acquired friends were marched in what was considered a disgustingly unmilitary fashion to their barracks. Inside the barracks they were given a demonstration in how to make up their bunks in the Cadet Corps style. Joe ' s first attempt, needless to say, brought forth a scorching comment from the Cadet Officer in charge. Tops blew shortly after- wards, but by this time most of the new group was already asleep. (, .i 263 Reveille blew at five-fifty the next morning, and Joe Gish hod to be dragged out bodily by a Cadet Of- ficer, who informed him that any further repetition of his staying in the sack after reveille would result in his being placed on report. The next day was a hectic one — the arrivals were issued uniforms, given lectures describing what was to be expected of them while in the Cadet Corps, and finally assigned to a week of practical work. During this week of " practical " work the entire section dug a ditch across the drill field under the direction of Lt. Hardnose, who was in Joe ' s opinion, a real slave driver, to say the least. One day Joe found himself placed on report for having a dusty bunk rail. At most the next day, when his turn came, Joe stepped up to the desk, attempted to " sound off " in a snappy manner, choked, and fin- ished his oration with a series of faintly gurgled noises. When asked by the Battalion Officer how he could explain the dust, Joe maintained that it must have settled during the day, It was the opinion of the officer that the roil had never been dusted. Joe worked off five hours of extra duty. Not too many days later, during morning cleaning stations, the Battalion Officer was " astonished " to see Joe ' s section leader methodically packing the waste paper basket with copies of that super soles talk, the " joke book " . A weekend restriction for the entire section for " improper attitude " was promptly forthcoming. So went life at the School, from one incident to an- other, until the day came for Joe to report to the District Supervisor ' s Office for assignment to a ship and the start of sea training. Great things happened to Joe that day — at least they were great from the standpoint of Joe Gish, who was of the opinion that no event was particularly important unless it con- cerned himself. On this momentous occasion, he was assigned to his first ship — the S.S. Mortimer Snerd, operated by the Rustpot Lines, Incorporated. With the air of one taking command, Joe surveyed his ship from the dock. The Mortimer Snerd was a C-2, and her appearance was entirely pleasing to our hero. He mounted the gangway with a seobag under his arm and a song in his heart. At the top of the gang- way, the song was rudely interrupted by a sleepy look- ing guard who inquired in a none too polite tone as to the nature of his business aboard. Joe stared at the guard in amazement. Surely this character had been notified that for the next six months the main function of the Mortimer Snerd and her crew was to train Joe Gish to be a ship ' s officer. The sad truth was that the guard had not been informed of any such situation, and Joe was obliged to present his orders before being allowed aboard. Having established the matter of his identity, he informed the guard that he wished to report to the 265 Captain. " The Skipper ' s ashore — you might find the Mate up forward, " growled the worthy, not at all im- pressed by the uniform and pompous manner of the new " gadget " . Joe dropped his bogs and started forward in quest of the Mate, Having toured the entire forward section of the ship, and finding no one dressed as befitting the title of Chief Mate of the Mortimer Snerd, Joe asked a nondescript-looking character where he might find the Mate. " Why I ' m the Mate, son, what can I do for you? " replied the salty individual. At the Cadet School, Joe had been told to " sound off " smartly to any of the ship ' s officers he met, and to in- form them that he was aboard for duty, so he gritted his teeth and blurted out, " Sir, Cadet-Midshipman |Gish, Third Class, reporting aboard. " The Mate smiled and explained to Joe in a kindly manner that he was oboard ship now, where military law was not enforced to the some degree as ashore. He then showed Joe to his room and returned to his work up iforward. Joe learned later that the Chief Mate hod -been on an inspection tour of the forward holds, hence the tattered and torn appearance of his clothes. A merchant officer, our hero soon realized, really earned his pay, despite rumors to the contrary. The next day Joe received word that he was wanted by the Skipper. " Oh, Oh! " he thought, " They ' re gonna put me to work already! " Upon reporting to the Skipper, Joe was surprised to learn that he was only interested in getting acquainted and seeing that the Cadet-Midshipman " got off on the right foot " . The days that followed were busy ones — on deck he learned the location of the deck machinery, watched the cargo gear in operation, and on the bridge he was introduced to the gyro, chartroom, steering wheel, fathometer, signalling devices, and other, navigational instruments. In the engine room, he met the main propulsion turbine, which drove the ship ahead and astern, the generators, the machine shop, steering engine and shaft alley. He wondered whether or not he could ever become familiar with this maze of pipes, valves and machinery in general. And now, let us return to Joe Gish the Deck Cadet- Midshipman — OS he helped the ship to get underway ISince Cadet-Midshipmen follow one of two distinct courses — Engineering or Deck — it hos been necessory to hove Joe olternote his identity between that of o Deck Cadet-Midshipman and that of a prospective Third Assis- tant Engineer as the story progresses. 266 ± for the first time. The Chief Mate was using the anchor windlass to haul in the bow lines as the ship moved slowly away from the dock. Operations in general were going a bit too slowly to please the Mate, so he called Joe, who had been standing by watching everything, to tell the carpenter to speed up the winch Joe, being eager to please the Mote, decided to per- form the speeding-up operation himself, for tnis would establish beyond a doubt that Cadet-Midship- men were even more intelligent than the Merchant Marine Officers believed. As Joe approached the windlass, it occurred to him that he had no experi- ence at all with such machinery, but he resolved not to be daunted by such a trivial matter. He surveyed the delinquent winch, selected a lever which he con- sidered large enough to be of importance, and gave it a hardy tug. The results were indeed gratifying. Above the din created by the anchor chain racing through the hawse pipe, the Mate could be heard ex- trolling heaven and earth to deliver him from the evils of a Cadet-Midshipman, while the Skipper ' s complexion evinced a deep purple color, which per- sisted until the anchor had been hoisted to its proper position again. Besides his practical lessons, Joe had his sea proj- ect to work on. Joe considered this sea project as an object manufactured by Satan for the express purpose of causing him discomfort. However, since the sea project was a necessary evil, Joe did manage to com- plete it successfully before the end of his sea time. When his ship reached port, Joe was ordered to report to the District Supervisor ' s Office to be detached and sent to the Academy for the final two years. fy]] j At the Supervisor ' s Office, one of the officers sur- veyed him in his salty uniform for a full minute, after which he informed our hero that he was the sloppiest looking Cadet-Midshipman that had entered the of- fice in many a moon, and advised Joe to press his uniform and invest in a new cap before reporting to Kings Point r J ' " ' Jbe was then detached from his ship and given leave. All too soon, he received orders to report to the District Supervisor ' s Office in New York for as- signment to the Academy. As a tribute to the train- ing he had received, it should be noted that this time Joe was prompt. Here Joe ' s sea project was examined and found to be reasonably satisfactory. He was then unceremoni- ously loaded into a bus with the other Cadet-Mid- shipmen who had reported that day, and they were on their way to Kings Point. Upon their arrival at Kings Point, those who had not been there before were quite surprised at the beauty of the grounds and buildings. As the new arrivals were being escorted to their rooms, Joe noticed that the interior of the bar- racks left nothing to be desired in modern conven- iences, except possibly elevators and a Turkish Bath. During the remainder of the day, Joe succeeded in getting lost innumerable times, but finally procured his linen and became established in his room. The next day, after an orientation, his section was placed on Regimental watch, and Joe was assigned to the task of a messenger in the Regimental Office. " Messenger, " muttered Joe to himself, " Why, I don ' t even know the way back to my own room, much less anywhere else. One thing that amazed Joe was the leniency that was shown to new arrivals in matters of discipline. One fine morning Joe found himself on report for having a slightly soiled towel hanging on his towet rack. It would be difficult indeed to express the a shocked surprise of Joe Gish when the Battalion Offi- j cer merely gave him a warning due to his " being new " . The elation Joe felt from his exoneration was . cSa K quelled the following Saturday when he started out on ° liberty. It was the procedure for the sections to be sent out on liberty in the order of seniority, which — ,_____ meant that Joe ' s section was the last to go out. By C.VjA. the time Joe ' s section was mustered, the officer in t charge of the liberty parties tended to be slightly V- irate, and when he reached Joe Gish, his already | ruffled temper reached a new peak. U J . j ' " Mister — don ' t you know that shield isn ' t the cbr- ' rect sleeve insignia? — Where did you get that hat? — ' And look at the tarnished braid!! — What a mess!! " The inspecting officer placed his hands on his hips, ' and from this Napoleonic pose inquired sarcastically, " And were you actually going to wear THAT uniform out of here? " While Joe was searching his mind for a suitable answer, the inspecting officer settled the matter by restricting Joe for the weekend. One morning after color formation, Joe could not believe his eyes when he saw a section, upon coming abreast of a Cadet Officer, suddenly break ranks, lay hands on him, carry him bodily down to the pool and ? 271 1 throw him in. Later, the surprised Joe found that this was the common treatment of retiring Cadet Officers. Sometime later Joe attended his first Regimental meeting — conducted by Lt. Gee Cee, who proceeded to tell the Regiment its faults in no uncertain terms. However, Lt. Gee Cee was at his best when he pre- sided over Regimental Mast. Here it was not un- common to observe a Cadet-Midshipman standing — clad only in his shorts, while Lt. Gee Cee inspected the clothing for stencils. He usually found at least one article unstenciled, for which the victim received three demerits in addition to those given him for the origi- nal charge. The mast list on the Battalion bulletin board always occupied number one priority of interest for all Cadet- Midshipmen, and it held especial interest for such a character as Joe Gish, whose name has become on old standby on the mast and extra duty lists. One day, as he was inspecting the most list, he found he was on report for having a pair of shoes under his bunk with the string not tied. The crowning blow come a few minutes later when a Cadet-Officer placed him on report for unmilitary bearing, namely, surveying the mast list with hands in pockets. Saturday inspections were a subject our model Cadet-Midshipman did not care to discuss. The mere thought of Saturday inspections was sufficient to put Joe Gish in a bod mood for the remainder of what might hove been a beautiful day. One fine morning the inspecting officer, feeling quite sociable, strolled into the room, listened atten- tively to the occupants " sound-off " , and greeted them with a cheery " Good Morning, gentlemen. " There was silence, then— " I SAID GOOD MORNING, GENTLEMEN!!! " roared the officer. After this out- burst he was greeted with a chorus of " Good Morning, Sir, " from the occupants, and a series of audible snickers from the neighboring rooms. Then the inspection party began methodically to look for something wrong. With a sudden pang Joe suddenly remembered that he hadn ' t dusted the over- head light for several days. Joe watched the Officer ' s white glove go up into the bowl and a black glove come down. The black glove thrust itself into close proximity to Joe G.sh ' s nose, and demanded " What do you hove to say about thafPPP " In the face of such evidence Joe could say very little. One morning, bright and early, Joe awoke to the tune of " Colodonia " instead of the usual ear-splitting reveille— retiring Regimental Commander Centner ' s farewell present to " the boys " . A source of considerable unhappiness to Lt Gee Cee was the conduct of the Cadet-Midshipmen in the Wednesday night movies, especially during the pre- liminary part of the picture, in which anybody who had anything to do with the picture had his name flashed on the screen. As each name flashed over the screen, sporadic cheers, boos, and handclapping took place. One Wednesday night Lt. Gee Cee de- cided he must have passed into the realm of heaven for the prelims were half over and not a sound from the Regiment — then as the last name was flashed on the screen, the entire audience of Cadet-Midshipmen rose and cheered with such vigor that Lt. Gee Cee could almost believe that it lifted him from his seat — when the cheers had subsided, the self satisfied smile that had previously occupied his face was gone, not to return for some time. In the place of the smile, the good Lieutenant wore a beaten expression. At long last came graduation- — that day of days! Soon after the ceremony Joe returned to his room and donned his new Ensign ' s uniform. Immediately out- side the building he received his first salute — for which he paid the usual dollar. Then Joe ' s peace of mind was rudely shattered when a Cadet Officer, who had caused Joe some difficulty in matters of disci- pline, hove into view. In less time than it takes to relate the event, the C. 0. found himself laden with the bags and baggage of Joe Gish, bringing up the rear of a parade consisting of our hero, his family and his fiancee — destination, the main gate. From then on, who knows? Least of all, Joe himself! i t. i ' I m ST UDCKU Ulllli, fc, ' Unit " " !«, HI L ' » I., I 276 »lit, H L MR. KEN STRONG, LT. Ijgi CHET GLADCHUCK, LT. ijgl EARL BROWN.

INGS POINT ' S initial season on inter-col- jj legiate gridirons, under the guiding hand of head coach Earl Brown, resulted in a very satisfactory record of five triumphs and three reverses. Five thousand Cadet-Midshipmen, alumni, and fans jammed Kendrick Field for the Mari- ners ' initial fray with R.P. I., and were rewarded with one of the most colorful games of the year. Coach Brown uncovered one of the out- standing backs of the East in Bob " Stormy " Pfohl, who personally accounted for every Kings Point tally in the 26-1 9 victory. Both teams were a little jittery in the first quarter, and little action took place until early in the second period when the officials ruled John Foley ' s pass complete on the RPI 3 yard line. In two plays Pfohl pounded off tackle for the touchdown. His attempted conversion was wide, but the Mariners led 6-0. The Fighting Engineers of Rensselaer came bock quickly to even the score when they re- covered a Kings Point fumble on the Mariner 13 yard marker. Heikkinen tossed a long, floating pass to Gorzelnick in the end zone for a touchdown, but Connors ' kick was not good. After receiving the kickoff. Kings Point started a determined drive with Jack McCrane and Pfohl clicking as a passing combination. After four plays, the Blue and Gray was knock- ing on the touchdown door from the RPI eleven. It required three plunges by Pfohl to score, but he was not to be denied, and the half ended with the Mariners holding a 12-6 edge. In the third quarter Kings Point drove 60 yards in 6 plays for their third score with line. This time Pfohl ' s place-kick was good. Thus the Mariners went ahead 19-6. Again Rensselaer come bock, striking through the air with Heikkinen doing the pitching. With the ball on the Kings Point 45, Heikkinen pitched to Gorzelnick, who romped 37 yards for a touchdown. Connors ' conversion shortened the Mariner lead to 19-13 at the end of the third quarter. The outstanding ploy of the game came in the early stages of the fourth period when Pfohl intercepted Heikkinen ' s pass a yard be- hind his goal line and charged 101 yards for a touchdown. To add the finishing touches to the feat, he calmly booted the extra point, giving the Mariners a safe 26-13 lead. Rensselaer hung on the end, however, and their brilliant quarterback, Heikkinen tossed to Art Beard for the final touchdown. Final score. Kings Point 26, RPI 19. The second game was far from the thriller of the first, but Kings Point played a tight defensive game, and employed a crushing ground attack to shutout the Ursinus College Bears 12-0 on a wet, muddy field. The driz- zling rain hampered both tea ms, and Jack McCrane had no chance to display his pass- ing ability. Chuck Wise, Wilbur Stein, and Bob Pfohl took up the slack caused by the lack of an aerial offense, and Wise plunged over from the one yard line for the first tally. As the second quarter opened, the Mariners had possession of the ball on the Bear 20. A series of line smashes carried the boll down to the 3 yard line, and from there Stein bulled 278 Attention to the orders of the day r. R. P. I. scores into the end zone. Pfohl missed the extro point, but the 12-0 margin proved to be the game. The University of Maryland became the first team to trim the Mariners, when they out-ran, out-passed, and completely out- played Kings Point 22-6 at Byrd Stadium in Maryland. The Terps scored in the first quarter when a bad punt by Pfohl gave them the ball on the Kings Point 24 yard line. Horry Bonk, Terp fullback, gained four yards at center. Three more smashes carried the boll to the Mariner 2 yard stripe, and Bonk went off guard for the touchdown. The place-kick for the extra point was not good. Kings Point recovered a Maryland fum- ble on their own 38 yard marker, from where Fuhrman passed to Pfohl, who downed on the Maryland 3. The Mariners found the Terp line impenetrable in three trys, therefore, McCrane slipped the ball to Bill Phillips on a wide end run for the score. Pfohl ' s kick was wide, but Kings Point had tied the score 6-6. In the closing minutes of the first half, Crossland, Terp end, snared one of McCrone ' s tosses near midfield and ram- bled 30 yards to the Kings Point 20 before he was downed. On the next ploy, Bobby Piker scooted wide around left end for the 280 m I second Maryland touchdown. Schwartz ' s conversion attempt hit the uprights, but the Terps led 1 2-6. Schwartz counted again for Maryland in the second period when he split the up- rights with a field goal from the Mariner 1 8 yard line to make it 1 5-6 at the half. Piker scored on another end sweep in the third quarter and Schwartz ' s kick made the final figures 22-6. Smarting from the defeat at the hands of Maryland, Kings Point journeyed to Easton, Pennsylvania to engage the Leop- ards of Lafayette. When business of the afternoon was completed, the Leopards had lost much of their ferociousness as the Mariners dealt them a 26-7 lacing. Continuing their winning ways, the Mariners rolled over Boston College 33-20 at Kendrick Field before 6,000 fans, the largest crowd at the home field all season. The Maroon and Gold Eagles scored the first time they had their hands on the ball, as they drove 75 yards in 7 plays for a 7-0 margin. Early in the second quarter, Pfohl found a big hole in the BC line and scored from the four. Shortly after, McCrane passed to Spruance for a touchdown, and Carpenter tossed to Pfohl for another score, to hold a safe 19-7 lead at the half. McCrane opened up in the third quarter and passed to Pfohl and Wise for the final Mariner tallies. Spruance converted both scores. Boston scored twice in the fourth quarter against the Mariner reserves, but it was far too late to do much damage. The Big Red of Harvard University stopped the Mariners 28-7 in the spacious Harvard Stadium, to become the second team to defeat Kings Point. Harvard ' s little quarterback, Roche, proved to be c thorn in the Mariner ' s side all afternoon as he passed for two touchdowns, and set up the others. The only Kings Point tally came in the second period when Bob Pfohl drove across from the Harvard four yard stripe. The powerful Indians from William and Mary College played host to the Mariners in the next gome, but they failed to treat their guests too kindly as they bulled their way to a 25-7 victory. William and Mary tallied twice in the first quarter, once in the second, and once in the third, to build up o 25-0 lead before Kings Point got their offense rolling. Returning valiantly, Mc- Down, but still driving Touchdown Crane and Pfohl moved the ball from deep in their own territory to the W M 6, where Pfohl romped across. Wise added the extra point, but it was far from enough to throw a scare into their opponents. However, W M failed to score again, and the final count of 25-7 entered the record books. The final battle of the season saw the Mariners maul a defenseless Brooklyn Col- lege eleven by the overwhelming score of 58-6. Brooklyn scored first, but that six points was all they could muster, while Pfohl, Wise, Spruance, McCrane, and Stein romped over the hapless Brooklynites for eight touchdowns and four conversions. The story of the game is told by the statis- tics. The Mariners gained 603 yards to 90 for Brooklyn and garnered 16 first downs to their opponents ' 9. This massacre saw the Kings Point " T " formation at its fury, and was a fitting finale to the first season of inter-collegiate football at Kings Point. 283 L faj ' I I ll r ' OR the second year in succession, the wres- J tling squad became the cream of Kings Point ' s athletic crop. The wizardry of Coach Carlos Henriquez ' s teachings again paid divi- dends. A repetition of the undefeated grapplers of a year back appeared in the making, when, in the opening match, the Moriners ran rough- shod over Brooklyn College. It was not so much the victory as the manner in which it was executed. The Kings Point wrestlers gave the impression that they were coasting. Effort- less as the win semed, it did issue a warning to all future opponents to beware. Jack Gard- ner and Ed Barnes, both quick victors in their first starts, gave promise of bright futures. Displaying a stronger team each time, the grapplers continued their victorious ways, hurdling New York University, Yale, Prince- ton, and Brooklyn Polytech, as they thundered down the stretch towards the Navy match. For the past four years, the Annapolis warriors had treated their opponents with unmerciful Grunts ond Groon f h 1 ' - ' ♦ ' Ji k.-k .

The Mariners, sporting a thirteen-game winning streak that stretched through two years, represented the greatest threat to Navy in half a decade. Sensing an upset in the making, nearly two hundred Cadet-Midshipmen journeyed to Annapolis with the team to witness the meet. They left disappointed. The Mariners had succumbed to a more powerful opponent. Gardner and Barnes suffered their initial de- feats as the Middies shattered a too-perfect dream. Each match was hard fought and per- haps, with the breaks being more equally dis- tributed, another tale might have been re- corded. Rebounding from this debacle. Kings Point ended the season by defeating Swarthmore. This highly successful conclusion of a trying schedule made the final record an enviable one and fully vindicated the Regiment ' s con- fidence in the team. Joe Sturgulewski ' s skein of seven straight victories further increased its stature. Top Row: STEELE, BENENSON, DERBY, ROBINSON. Second Row: WISE, METZ EULITT, BARNES.

The extreme popularity of the pro- fessional fighter and his dominance of the sport pages in this field are the factors largely responsible for the general indifference. But this apathy is gradually being overcome as the " alma mater " boys prove that the pugilis- tic art is not restricted to the professionals. Thus, it was no surprise when seventy eager candidates responded to Coach Twomey ' s call for men for Kings Point ' s first boxing squad. With such a gratifying turnout, Coach Twomey immediately set to the task of mold- ing a team that would uphold Kings Point ' s tradition of producing an enviable first year record. Encouraging as the outlook seemed, one had only to glance at the schedule to understand why there was little talk of on undefeated team. Heading the imposing list of opponents was mighty Army, king pins of the ring. Although the West Pointers had suffered defeat but once in ten years, their brilliant record did not phase the Mariners, who travelled up the Hudson intent upon win- ning. That the team suffered a 7-1 defeat was in no way a reflection of over-confidence. Each match was closely contested, and the excellent showing turned in by the Mariners vindicated Coach Twomey ' s faith in their ability. Dick Ross took the decision in the 1 65 pound class for Kings Point ' s only victory. In the heavyweight contest, the best bout of the day, Dobbs of Army barely edged out the decision from Ed Corkery in a bitterly fought slugfest. Rebounding quickly, the Mariners hit the victory trail by downing Maryland, Southern champions, at Kings Point. Once more Ross showed the way, with Corkery, Stan Wheatley, and Joe dinger also gaining decisions. The return match with Maryland found the Kings Pointers losing by one point. The loss of Corkery through graduation was severely felt. An even split with Syracuse in a home and home series finished the year. Outstanding all season, Dick Ross, undefeated captain of the squad, received newspaper ravings as the best in his class in the East. Top Row: R. MILLER, PRIVETT, SAEZ, LEONARD, STAHMAN, J. MILLER.

Whoever formulated the schedule made certain that the Mariners were to be indoctrinated early in the art of severe competition. Yale, the second party in the first meet, proved once again that its mythical title as supreme ruler of college swimming was no idle talk. Showing an array of talent that performed as well as pre-season write-ups boasted, Old Eli overwhelmed the still inexperienced Kings Pointers by a 57-18 margin. However bad the defeat seems on paper, the game fight put up by the Mariners indicated that brighter days were to come. Bob Whitam, who took Kings Point ' s only first place with a fine performance in the 1 50-yard backstroke, showed to good advantage, as did Top Row: JOHNSON, SMITH, DAYTON, HUGHES, LOWRY, BEAUCHAMP, SNYDER.

The second meet with Renssalaer found the Grey and Blue in much better form, enabling them to sweep every event and gain their first victory. A carbon copy performance was re- enacted the following week against Pennsyl- vania with the Mariners running up another gigantic score. Swimming in his last meet, Whitam protected his unblemished record and graduated with the distinction of never having lost a race while representing Kings Point. Princeton snapped the short winning streak by eking out a close triumph, the meet being decided in the final event. However, the Mar- iners recovered quickly against Fordham and Colgate and added two more marks to the victory side of the ledger. In the concluding meet, a strong Navy team had to fight all the way to gain the verdict over our determined swimmers. On your mark, get set, go INGS POINT ' S court squad had a diffi- JJ cult assignment confronting it as the season began. Fresh in the mind of the Regiment was the enviable record of their predecessors, who tore through the opposi- tion with but a single defeat. The assumption that this year ' s team would do OS well was shattered in the first game when the Red Raiders from Colgate University ran roughshod over the Mari- ners for a 68-48 triumph. This game was on excellent prelude of what was to come during the remainder of the season — tall, rangy men against small, aggressive men. When final tabulations were taken, the record showed five victories against eleven setbacks, a disappointing season at first glance. But figures often lie; so they exag- gerated in this instance. They did not re- late that six of these defeats were by four points or less, and could have easily been on the asset side of the column had there Bi) 5i1£TiJi]U been a few more reserves to take over for the weary starting five. The players who composed the team were a talented group. Under the tutelage of their coach, Lt. (j.g.) Earl Brown, USMS, former Notre Dame gridiron and basket- ball star, and later Dartmouth mentor, they were forged into fast-moving, sharp- breaking, offensive-minded outfit. Bill Zagelmeier and Bill Paris were the scoring aces and playmakers. Louis Viau, Paul Harless, and Simon Toflon, the latter a hard-driving " under the basket " artist, rounded out a well-balanced five. Their only drawback was their lock of height. Following the Colgate debacle, the team scored its first victory at the expense of Union College, 43-31 . Princeton added to the discomfort of the Regiment with a last- minute win. In the first home game of the season. Kings Point brought the record to .500 with a conquest of Villanova.

Los- ing to the first two was no disgrace; they ranked among the best in basketball circles. The Boston College game was hard fought, two baskets just before the final whistle giving the New England squad a 53-50 verdict. After the Christmas recess, the team re- turned to action with a vengeance. The fel- lows were determined that no future opponent would pile up the score, as did Colgate, Yale, and C.C.N.Y. That they were sincere was proved in their first start against William Cr Mary. The lads from south of the Mason- Dixon Line came to Kings Point with advance ravings and a special note concerning their 6 ' 8 " center. How completely the team shackled him and his colleagues cannot fully be put down on paper. The game had to be seen to be believed. Kings Point showed a devastating blitzkrieg and breezed through to a 51-33 victory. To prove that it was not a fluke performance, the squad played the some aggressive brand of basketball the following week in torpedoing Fordham, 55-48. This was a much closer contest than the score indi- cated. Fordham, badly underrated nearly up- set the favored Kings Pointers. Around and out A return game with Villanova found Kings Point ' s two-game winning streak snapped. The Wildcats avenged their previous defeat with a vicious second half rally befitting their nick- name, and earned a 53-49 win. Another heartbreaker followed when the Blackbirds of Long Island University copped a 57-53 battle from the Blue and Grey. This game was nip and tuck all the way, and only LIU ' s cele- brated Jackie Goldsmith saved the Blackbirds from an upset. The " game of the season " was played at Annapolis against the highly touted Navy quintet. All over the Academy signs and posters pleaded to " Sink the Navy. " The An- napolis team was ranked among the first five in the nation, and had suffered defeat only once. The boys left Kings Point with the in- tent to win. The loss of Harless, a flue victim at the last moment, strengthened, rather than subdued, their fiery spirit. Playing at their best, the Mariners left the court at half time on the long end of a 27-22 count. However, following the intermission, the Navy squad drew even, and eventually eked out the vic- tory, 47-45. The usual handicap, the tremen- dous height advantage, told the final tale. Viou up for o lay-up 293 The grueling battle with Navy had its ef- fects on the team, and they innmediately pro- ceeded to lose two close games to mediocre opposition. Maryland and Brooklyn College, both underdogs, took advantage of faulty play and some costly mistakes by Kings Point to gain slim verdicts. This marked the fifth and sixth games that the Academy had dropped by a close margin. The Maryland game was a mistake, as was proven when the Terps journeyed to Kings Point for a return tussle. The Mariners played superb basketball, and Maryland could do nothing right. Eighteen minutes of the first half elapsed before they could score a field goal, and they managed to collect only seven in the entire game. The final tally of 52-25 was conclusive eidence of the Mariner ' s su- periority. The last fray of the sixteen game schedule was a hotly contested thriller against Holy Cross, which saw the Crusaders gain the 61- 50 honors. The Mariners drew to within three points of a deadlock when the ax fell. Four of the starting five fouled out, and with their departure went any hopes of an upset. In retrospect, it can only be reiterated that the season was an exciting one, even if filled with continuous disappointments and frustra- tions. A final analysis would indicate that the team played according to their opposition, im- pressive and good in the role of a heavy un- derdog, but faulty and lackadaisical against weaker foes. Yet, their inspired ploy on many on occa- sion won them the confidence of the Regi- ment. Win or lose, they did a memorable job in moving through a vigorous program. To Cadet-Midshipmen Zagelmeier, Paris, and Company, we extend a vote of sincere thanks for a season, well played and hard fought. 5,S ?01MT ■T " ' i 1 i , Hf— - ..:::i - : " 1 f : f ■- Bill Zagelmeier 294 nm ' s ' i • " " ' Qmm mjimvi ' | RACK and Cross-Country are two sports J that are maintained on a year-round basis. Here, the Mariners found them- selves at a distinct disadvantage, without the use of an indoor track, many a practice session had to be cancelled because of ad- verse weather. In spite of this handicap and the continual loss of men through graduation, Kings Point ' s wing footers gave an admirable, if unspectacular, per- formance in every meet. In the initial start, the relay team of Bill Gannon, James Caskey, John Stranberg, and Joel Benson gained third place in the 2400-yard run in the West Point Relays. This marked the first time that a Kings Point relay team drew honors, in inter-col- legiate indoor track competition. Throug ' ' out the entire season, the relay team kept Kings Point ' s name in the track summaries of the nation ' s biggest meets. With this year ' s experience as a foundation, next winter ' s tale on the boards and cinders should be most gratifying. Coskey leads th pack. fj|] £Bl]iI jINDER the tutelage of a new coach, Lt. (j.g.) " Jerry " O ' Brien, former mentor of the " major league killer " Bainbridge Naval Station team, Kings Point ' s baseball squad showed vest improvement over the game but unlucky nine of the previous season. Although the Mariners did not reach the pinnacle of suc- cess by achieving a winning record, this team, composed mainly of Second Classmen, gave indications that baseball was definitely on the upswing at the Academy. Uncerta in weather conditions, causing postponement of many a practice session, placed extreme pressure on both Coach O ' Brien and the team and forced them to exert every effort in order to meet the onslaught of twenty-four games within a span of fifty days. The season opened with the Mariners tak- ing a disastrous swing through the near South. Taking two successive trouncings at the hands of Maryland and a severe beating by Bain- bridge in an exhibition game, the fellows re- turned to the Academy in o none too receptive r mood. A period of rejuvenation appeared in the making when the Mariners held a favored St. John ' s nine to a 10-10 draw. However, our first win was yet to come as New York Uni- versity and Columbia subdued the Kings Pointers, the former game a ten-inning affair. The Mariners finally hit the victory trail on their second trip, this one a jaunt through New England, and they did it in grand style. Gerry Wilde pitched superbly to lead the team to a 4-3 verdict over Yale, later Eastern Inter- collegiate Champions, inflicting upon them their sole defeat. Having tasted victory, the Mariners avenged last year ' s loss to Harvard by pounding out a 10-2 decision. Art Doyle, Kings Point ' s most reliable twirler, turned in the masterpiece. Bowing to the New London Submarine Base the following day was no dis- grace, as the Navy lads presented a line-up sprinkled with men of major league experience. From then on, the Mariners more than held their own, clubbing St. John ' s and Manhattan, dividing two game series with both Maryland and Hofstra while losing a close one to Wag- ner. Chet Wojicki, batting at a .466 clip, and Louis Viau were the big guns in Kings Point ' s resurgent offensive. Thus, this nine that had started out upon such a bleak note eventually achieved a presentable record. ui — pulled too for MiflCi T L Top Row: DOYLE, SHELLENBACH, NOLAN, SUITS, WOJICKI, DOANE, ROBELL.

On October 14th at the M. I. T. Invitation Regatta, the team closely contested Tufts for third place. At the finish the tally was- M. I. T. 70, Harvard 62, Tufts 55, Kings Point 49, Brown 48, Holy Cross 41, Northeastern 40, and W. P. I. 10. Kings Point played host to Coast Guard the following week. After six hot races, the vis- itors nudged the boys out for a final score of 1 96 to 1 92. At Annapolis on October 28, M. I. T. topped with 70 points. Navy with 69 was second. Kings Point tallied 58 and New York State Maritime 31 Vi. For the finale. Kings Point again journeyed to M. I. T. to race thirteen top flight Eastern colleges in the Erwin H. Schell Trophy Re- gatta. Here, the Mariners sailed to second place in the toughest assignment of the year, because not only were the colleges in pursuit of the coveted trophy, but the weather condi- tions were decidedly adverse. The final scores were M. I. T. 99, Kings Point 91 , Coast Guard 87, Holy Cross 86, Navy 85, followed by Har- vard, Northeastern, Brown, New Hampshire, Tufts, Williams, Stevens, Rhode Island, and Yale.

Un- doubtedly, the poorer showing can be attrib- uted to the necessity of building an entirely new squad out of second classmen returning from sea duty. Also, the opposition ranked among the finest in the East. Beginning the season with a short Southern trip, the Mari- ners found little of that much sought hospi- tality at Georgetown, Annapolis, and Mary- land. These opponents proved too strong for our netmen, and the Kings Pointers returned to the Academy sporting a three-game losing streak. No relief seemed in sight when the Mariners dropped the following two matches against West Point and William Mary, the latter among the roughest " rocquet-eers " in the nation. An abrupt halt to our losing ways came when Georgetown visited the Academy. Re- venge was sweet, thus giving Kings Point its initial win. Now fully righted, the Mariners continued their victory skein against City College and Brooklyn College. A loss to Yale completed the season. r£j]j)js JS jiiriuimuiijii ' l HE Intramural Basketball League began its J third year of inter -company competition early last December. The League consists of teams representing each company in the Regi- ment. The Regiment itself is divided into two separate Leagues, six teams in each, and the winners of the separate circuits square off in a final game for the Regimental champion- ship. The games were well played and hard fought, for basketball is one of the most pop- ular sports here at Kings Point. When the final whistle blew and the smoke cleared, Company Seven was on top, the new Regi- mental Champs. The players of the winning team were awarded sterling silver medals in honor of their victory, and a trophy was presented to the Second Battalion for their trophy case. The League ' s " Most Valuable Player " award was given to Cadet-Midshipman Sullivan of Section 272. He was high score man of the winning team. 1 jDriUiiJiUiU)! ' l HE perennial Regimental Softball Tourna- i ment again developed into a bitterly-con- tested and grueling battle. Always among the most popular activities at the Academy, this year ' s competition stirred the interest of the Regiment to a new peak, comparable to the status given the intercollegiate sports. At the conclusion of the regular schedule. Companies Two, Eight, and Ten finished first in their respective battalions, thereby moving into the finals. Because of frequent postpone- ments and the necessity of holding two play- off games, the time allotted to the final round was cut short, cancelling the plans for a round-robin tournament. Instead, a one-loss elimination series was substituted. Company Two drew the bye and automati- cally advanced to the final round. Their op- ponent proved to be Company Eight, who came from behind in the late innings to eke out the win over Company Ten. Two cham- pionship games on successive days were too exhausting a task for Company Eight. They succumbed before the expert pitching of " Rosie " Garofolo, who led his team on to vic- tory, gaining the Regimental Trophy for the First Battalion.

Eagle-eye Torren j] PROFICIENCY in the use of small arms is an attribute that every officer worthy of his calling should possess. It was with a view to fostering a deeper interest in small arms among the gentlemen of the Regiment, as well as to stimulate a competitive feeling among the Cadet-Midshipmen, that the Academy ' s first Superintendent, Captain Tomb, has established an annual small arms champion- ship of the Regiment. This year the trophy was presented to Cadet-Midshipman K, C.

The runners spent many weeks in preparation for the contest, and oil were in the best possible condition on the big day. Indeed they had to be, for the race itself covered a four-mile course over rough and rugged terrain. This year ' s winner was Cadet-Midshipman Evan Clingman of Section 159. Clingman covered the four-mile distance in twenty-four minutes and forty-one seconds. The Winners Trophy was awarded to the First Battalion; the runner up went to the Second Battalion.

This system involves the reception of ac- curately timed radio pulses from shore- based transmitting stations, usually 200 to 400 miles apart. The difference in time of airival of signals from a pair of transmitting stations is measured and the time dif- ference is then used to determine, from special charts or tables, a line- of-position on the earth ' s surface. When two lines-of-position from two dlHcrciit pairs of Loran stations are crossed, you have a " Loran fix. " Fixes are obtainable at distances from shore stations up to 1400 miles at night, 700 miles in daytime. In your consideration of Loran, note particularly that Sperry ' s equip- ment is easy to operate. A Time Difference Meter (see illustration above) greatly simplifies the operator ' s work and prevents errors in readings. Sperry Loran is backed by a world- wide service organization and meets the usual high standards of test and performance of all Sperry products.

Eighteen new, fully refrigerated vessels are on the company ' s building program, each with approximately 320,000 cubic feet of cargo space and capable of close to 20 knots. Twelve passengers will be accom- modated in each vessel in airy, outside cabins with private baths. Typical of these fine new modern ships is the S.S. FRA BERLANGA, pictured above. Six of these vessels already have been launched. At present, most of them are in government service, carrying refrigerated cargoes to our Armed Forces in the Pacific and in Europe. Eventually, however, they will enter the trade for which they were built — the healthy, growing 2-way trade between our country and Middle America, which the United Fruit Company has developed for nearly 50 years!

GENEBAI- E1ECTR1C SCHENECTRDV, H. . 322 ■-t B W Makes Boilers for Ships that Make Profits 1 HE quality of American-built merchant ships lias never been equalled or surpassed. This su- premacy is due not to any one factor but is the result of the un- equalled know-how of American designers, manufacturers, and workmen. The B W boilers that have gone into over f.OOO vessels of every size and class have been one of the factors contributing to this supremacy. In building a post-w ar merchant fleet, the prime objective of every American designer, shipbuilder, and operator will be vessels that are leaders in every respect. With confidence they can continue to turn to B W, whose pioneering leadership and years of experience in the marine boiler field will assure them of the high standards of per- formance and economy so neces- sary for profitable operation of new merchant ships.

This window is so designed that when unobstructed ision is essential, the lens may be parted at the center to any desired opening, and the opening adjusted to any eye level. The preference for Kearfott products by those experienced in the needs of ship operation, and the preference of those concerned with the safet) ' and comfort of their vessels, is a testimonial of KL ' arfott design and workmanship.

But Cargo- caire prevents the other losses that insurance does not repay ; the loss of business due to failure to deliver, the loss of customers ' good will, the loss of time filing and ifollowing in- surance claims. •jf Cargocaire is profitable to ship operators because Cargocaire pro- tects the shippers ' investment. That ' s why so many progressive lines have installed Cargocaire — as a means of satisfying present cus- tomers and attracting new. if So Cargocaire is not only an efli- cient mechanical system for safe- guarding cargoes . . . it ' s a positive force in getting and keeping busi- ness.

Combustion Engineering is proud of the part it played in supplying more boilers for America ' s war-built merchant fleet than any other manufacturer. Proud, too, of the fact that now that the great shipbuilding companies are assembling their peace- time fleets, C-E Boilers will power so much of America ' s new merchant marine. Nineteen ships of the United States Lines ' new cargo fleet, seventeen of the Lykes Brothers ' new fleet, nine of the Grace Lines ' new Santa fleet, twenty-three of the new U. S. Collier fleet, ten of the Admiral Ben- son class troopships now being converted to luxury liners, a fleet of the world ' s largest ore carriers equipped with the highest pressure boilers in marine service — these and others comprise the list of peace- time vessels, built or building, that are powered with C-E Boilers. The boilers in these new ships are designs thor- oughly tested and proved under the rigorous condi- tions of wartime service. They, therefore, merit the confidence of you men of the Merchant Marine Academy who will be responsible for their future performance. A-962 COMBUSTION ENGINEERING 200 MADISON AVENUE, NEW YORK 16, N.
