" ' f The sea has always been a mystery to man. Its power has inspired him to awe and its beauty to wonder. Many peoples have told stories of tJie sea and evolved l kends and myths about it. Perhaps some of the jnost famous amogtg l!rese come from ancient Greece. Accwdicig Mythology the world was divided into three realms. " " of the fd and ruler of earth and Mount Olympus, while ades was given the underwop dominion of the dead. .;% ,o Poseidon w»s iT i;)aaastery of the sea and all its creatures. His realm waf largei l all thers combined and his power second only to that of s Tirother Z Thus the sea has always been a domain inde- pendent of all others andirom the beginning those of the sea have been set ar men. ' f 7eus wa: anait from or%i£ : .4 4«i EDICATION There are some in each generation who, restless and dissatisfied, turn to the sea to which they are akin. From it they create great legends of daring and determination, and build lives rich with character as honest and powerful as the sea itself. Such a man was Hans Isbrandtsen. To perpetuate his memory and to the preservation of his love of the sea, we dedicate the 1954 Midships. Isbrandtsen was born September 7, 1891, on a small island off Copenhagen, Denmark. Descendant of an impressive line of masters and shipowners, it was only natu- ral that he too should follow the sea, and after a compulsory stint in the Danish Navy he began his career as an appren- tice in a Danish shipping house. In 1914 he came to the United States and, opening a small office at 17 Battery Place, he entered the chartering field. A few years later, in partnership with his cousin, he formed the Isbrandtsen-MoUer Steamship Company and operated a fleet of vessels for the United States Shipping Board during World War I. After the Armistice a purchase of sixteen ships was made, the basis of the present fleet. A shrewd trader as well, he soon combined his shipping interests with vast trading activities in steel, grain, coal, coffee, tea, and rubber, and did much to develop natural resources throughout the world. Typical of a lifetime filled with zest and vigor, Hans Isbrandtsen was on a world wide inspection tour of his holdings when he died at Wake Island on May 13, 1953.

For six devoted and loyal years at the Academy, with his hands and his head and his heart he helped to mold and build men. Embarked now on that last long voyage which we all must take and from which none return, all who knew him join with us in saying " Bon Voyage, shipmate and friend. " 4 k w lm- nnn nnn n II nil IliilLiiii WILEY HALL ACTA NON VERBA wwT ' Twm : Poseidon was the Supreme Master of the Sea. When displeased his trident stirred the waters of his domain into an angry boil. Seamen feared and respected him for he was the protector of ships and sailors at sea. Upon his disposition depended the livelihood of all who lived by the sea, and it is said he was a moody ruler, his caprices causing hardship and his favors good fortune and plenty. His will was not limited to the sea alone for he was the giver of inland lakes s. and streams, and earthquakes were caused when he rocked the earth that his waters supported. If the fate of the Regiment is not dependent upon the caprice of gods, its future and that of the Cadet Corps is only slightly less dependent upon the decisions made and the judgment exercised by our Administration. What figure in mythology is more sugges- tive of that responsibility than the Supreme Ruler of the Sea? n PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ' ' . t;f Dmqht D, E senfioiuer I SECRETARY OF COMMERCE The Honorable Smcla r Weeks ., mf- - - 1 i The Honorable Robert Blaine Murray UNDER SECRETARY OF COMMERCE FOR TRANSPORTATION Louis S.

SECOND PLATOON J r DWLL TEAM Oldest extra-curricular activity at the Academy, the Regimental Drill Team has grown from nine men to the smart organization it is today. Trained and manned by Cadet- Midshipmen, this snappy unit marcjies at all reviews in addition to performing at football games and local festivities. The Drill Team also serves as honor guard and escorts, and carries out special duties at Academy functions. High point this year was a special show- ing at the Roxy Theatre at a New York Premiere.

' C rc The statue of Amphitrite will never fade from the memory of Cadet- Midshipmen, since making offerings to this graceful image for aid in exams has become a quarterly ritual. Although Amphitrite is sometimes pictured as a mermaid, she, like many gods and goddesses, could change into human form. It is said of her, " Along the deep with beauteous ankles Amphitrite glides. " This would please Poseidon because it is written that despite his unfaith- fulness he loved no one but her. When she became his bride he created the constellation of the Dolphin in the heavens since this 1 fish carried her acceptance to him; thus it was that the ftj fairest of the Nereids became Poseidon ' s goddess and symbol of the calm sea. So it is at night the stars reflect on the surface of her kingdom the mute devotion of her lord. By day she stands a symbol of the calm sea and truly a symbol of Our Story. Clipl Clip!

" Let ' s go forward " The Campus Queens On the 7th of April 1954, Kings Point played host to thirty college queens who were competing for the title of Campus Queen.

Today we get our licenses, com- missions, and degrees. No more class rates, regulations, or tests. We are going on, into the Maritime Service, the Navy, or private business, with the knowledge that we, as graduates of Kings Point, have the finest training a man could possibly get anywhere. Here ' s to fair weather and smooth sailing always. To impart to him the necessary academic background and the fundamentals of a practical nautical education essential to a successful career at sea. The ancient sailors believed that Nereus had fifty beautiful daughters, the Nereids. Each one personified one of the various aspects of the sea, and although some were onerous, like the Nereid of Storm, those who loved the sea saw her as a symbol of great splendor. So as the mood of the sea changed the early sailor dreamed of the passing of these lovely creatures. The seamen were not just dreamers however, for they learned to meet the problems that presented themselves on the ever-changing blue surface. Thus it is today that the mariner must learn scores of arts to cope with waters commanded by fifty fickle women. NAUTICAL SCIENCE The lore of the sea is complex as well as ancient, and new chapters are added daily to record the advances in design of ships and equipment. The goal of the department is to prepare deck officers not only as competent third mates but as masters in the years ahead. To such theoretical considerations as navigation and meteorology must be added such practical subjects as seamanship, cargo stowage and boathandling. The proper combination of these and other courses produce officers that are a credit to the flag they sail under and the school they represent. COMMANDER R.

In its quest to fulfill its mission the Department of Engineering acquaints the prospective officer with all the knowledge that he will need in order to go aboard ships as a highly qualified engineering officer. In his plebe year the Cadet-Midshipman is taught the hows and whys of the marine power plant. In his second year, he is placed aboard a merchant ship where he cares for and operates different types of power plants and thereby obtains an opportunity to put into practical application the knowledge he has acquired. In his last two years at the Academy he is taught the advanced theory and practice of Marine Engineering by a select group of instructors who themselves are qualified officers in the maritime field. The aim of the Department of Engineering is not only to train qualified marine officers but also to send out officers who will strive to better and further advance the science of Marine Engineering.

USN SCIENCE In the advent of world crisis the United States Navy must be able to fall back on a reservoir of adequately trained Reserve Officers to fill the necessary billets. To contribute to this supply the Academy presents a curriculum in Naval Science which includes gunnery, naval leadership, sonar, radar, tactics and administrative duties. Under the capable guidance of Naval Line Officers, the Cadet-Midshipman graduates with the necessary knowledge that will enable him to serve his country in the Navy, intelligently and efficiently, should he be called upon.

To meet the requirements of the modern maritime industry, the Department of Ship Management provides courses in Law, Insurance, Economics and commercial practice as they apply to that industry. Always it is kept in mind that the officers of today will be the executives of a few years hence. Shades of Shipping Office I MATHEMATIC mo SCIENCE The never-ending stream of technical achievements of today ' s marine industry makes it necessary that the Merchant Marine Officer be able to comprehend fully the theories behind these present developments and those which are yet to come. To this end the Department of Mathematics and Science is dedicated. The Department thoroughly grounds each Cadet-Midshipman in the physical sciences and the higher mathematics which are so essential for the complete mastery of the many technical courses in the four year curriculum. Supplementary work in the Department ' s fully-equipped laboratories enables the Cadet-Midshipman to put into practice the theories presented in classroom lectures. Ledr. C. J. Oberist, USMS Lt. G.

Walsh, USMS Lcdr. M. M. Maya, USMS ANCUACES In a world where barriers between nations are ever decreasing, the present day graduate must be able to take his place as an intelligent and effective personality, Merchant Marine Officer, and private citizen. The Department of History and Languages seeks to accomplish this end by planning its courses in History, English and Foreign Languages to meet the needs of young men in an interdependent world. Cadet-Midshipmen must gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of American democratic life and a knowledge of their operation in order to defend and interpret them, both at home and abroad. Moreover, this department imparts a sound comprehension of the historical and social backgrounds of other nations. By the very nature of their future work, Cadet-Midshipmen are unofficial representatives of American democracy. What they take from History and Languages shall speed them on their course. LIBPiAPiY I The Academy Library constitutes an integral part of the educational program. It serves to supplement classroom work and readily provides reference material on any phase of marine operations from keel laying to scrapping. All important English language periodicals will be found here. In addition to marine publications the library is well supplied with works in other fields as well as books of purely literary interest. The latest periodicals and newspapers are provided in addition to a music room where Cadet-Midshipmen may listen to records from the library ' s well stocked collection. LT. E. H. NORTHROP, USMS, Assistant Librarian ' mi CHAPLAINS In the Academy ' s endeavor to prepare good officers, great stress is placed on character building. In forming the character of the men of the Regiment, religious experience is believed one of the prime essentials. Religious services of all faiths are held on the Academy grounds under the leadership of chaplains of the respective faiths. In the four year stay at the Academy, many cadets will encounter difficult situations that will prove to be important problems in their lives. At that instant there can be no greater help than the kind words of a chaplain and his sincere endeavor to help them through a critical period. In the offering of services and the giving of guidance to Cadet-Midshipmen, the chaplains are always available to help cadets in their daily spiritual needs and give them a chance to obtain a greater understanding of God and thereby enjoy a fuller and better life.

ThAININC To enable the Cadet-Midshipman to be equal to the hardships that he must face in a career loaded with physical strain and long hours, the Department of Physical Training and Athletics prepares a well rounded program dedicated to physical fitness. Through an intensive instruction and supervision of physical training classes, intramural events, and varsity athletics, the department plays a unique role in the Academy training. From the courses the graduate emerges well fit, but perhaps even more important, he emerges with a sense of good sportsmanship, fair play and co-operation; these are invaluable assets to an officer at sea.

The offices of the Medical Department are located in the well-equipped and efficiently run Patten Hospital. Not only does the Medical Department strive to safeguard the cadet ' s health from a physical standpoint, but it presents a course in preventive medicine which enables the graduating cadet to embark on a maritime career with a basic knowledge of anatomy, pharmacy and first aid. |l Cmdr.

Army ' ' B ' ' Opening day of the 1953 football season found the Mariners of Kings Point playing host to a well-seasoned Army " B " squad. The Blue and Gray received the opening kick-off and as they tore gaping holes in the Army forward wall, it appeared that the Mariners were on the road to victory. However, Anny then began to stiffen their defenses and- scored as their fullback, Ed Bulhird, intercepted Pat Anderson ' s pass and scooted o er for a touchdown. The e.xtra point was missed and Army led 6-0 as the lialf ended. Late in the third quarter, after a successful drive, Army once more scored and led 12-0, as the attempt for the extra point was missed again. However, the Kings Pointers weren ' t to be denied and, after a brilliant sixty yard run by Timmy Allen, they hit pay-dirt as fullback Jack Lipscombe went over on a hand-ofF from quarterback Duane Bobbins. Kings Point, likewise, missed the try for the extra point and the score was 12-6 as the game ended with the Mariners again threatening to score. Kings Point vs. R. R I %Vith the Academy celebrating its tenth anniversary on October 10th, the gridiron men highlighted the festivities by defeating R. P. I., 24 to 6. In the first period, the Kings Point eleven drove up to the one foot line, where Timmy Allen crashed over for the score, giving the Academy a 6 to lead. Throughout the first half the spectators saw the Mariners constantly pressing the attack. Towards the end of the second quarter, after a crushing march of seventy-five yards, halfback Don Carlson went over on a brilliant running play for another Mariner score. This touchdown secured a 12 to lead for the Gray and Blue at the sound of the half-time gun. In the second half R. P. I. returned looking very good. After receiving Lijjpcomb ' s punt early in the third quarter, Rensselaer ' s Willie Lick made a spectacular eighty yard return for R. P. I. ' s only score of the game. R. P. I. continued to play fine ball for the rest of the quarter, but could not score through the Mariners ' defense. In the final quarter the game was " put on ice " by the Mariners as Carlson, with excellent blocking, cut through right tackle and dashed a thrilling sixty-five yards for Kings Point ' s touch- down. Shortly afterwards, Lipscomb and Byrne began a fifty-eight yard march on the Mariners ' last scoring journey which made the final score 24 to 6. Another Long Gain, DON FRANCIS, Manager ROSS WERNER Captain car Football — Twenty-five Years Ago. iu Kings Point os. Wagner On October 17, fresh from tlieir triumph over R. P. I. the previous Saturday, the Kings Pointers were eager for their second straight victory as they engaged the Sea Hawks from Wagner College. They were successful in their struggle as they won a low scoring but hard fought game, 6-0. The first quarter saw an impressive Wagner eleven combine a series of first downs to bring them deep into Mariner terri- tory. However, excellent line playing on the part of Guscott, Haniman, and Ragueci, of the Gray and Blue forward wall, stopped the Sea Hawk attack. The Mariners finally got rolling in the second quarter. Deep in their own territory, quarterback Duane Robbins tossed a thirty-five yard pass to end Charlie Myers who lugged the pigskin another thirty yards before crossing the goal line with the only touchdown of the game. Throughout the entire second half the Wagner team showed signs of weakening and upon such occasions the Mariners capitalized and threatened to score, only to lose the ball on fumbles. As the game was ending in another Kings Point vic- tory, the Sea Hawks made a belated bid for tlie equalizer, but fell short as the Mariners repulsed their attack. Kings Point us. Kings College On October 24 the Mariners experienced their first away game of the season, as they voyaged to Wilkes- Barre, Pennsylvania to phiy the Kings College eleven under the arcs. Shortly after the opening kickoff it started to rain and the rest of the game was played in a field of mud. Upon regaining possession, after Kings College failed to thwart their strong defenses, the Mariners put plenty of hustle into the ground attack and moved deep into enemy ter- ritory. Then Duane Robbins chucked a pass to Charlie Meyers for the first score of the game. The Mariners picked up the conversion and sliortly thereafter the first :riod came to an end. Towards the end of the second er Harry Mills of Kings College received a pass and galloped fifty-three yards to pick up six points for tlxe hosts. The conversion was good and half-time found the two teams tied at seven-all. In the early part of the third quarter Mills caught another pass and was once more off for a TD, this time the play covering sixty yards. The conversion was not good and for the remainder of the quarter the Mariners kept possession, advancing up the wind-swept, rain- soaked gridiron as best they could. In the final period, the Mariners ' air attack began to click exceptionally well, with completions from Robbins to Siegal and Orski pre- senting a threat to Kings ' one touchdown margin. How- ever, time ran out before the Mariners could successfully penetrate their opponent ' s end zone, leaving the final score of the encounter 13-7. w - m Kings Point us. Brooklyn The Mariners dealt a cruel blow to the Kingsnicn of Brooklyn College as they overwhelmed them 40 to 0. The Gray and Blue wasted no time. They struck in the first few minutes of the game when Duane Robbins intercepted a Brooklyn pass and tore up the sideline twenty-five yards for a touchdown. Towards the end of the first quarter the Mariners scored again when Robbins rifled a bullet pass to Charlie Meyers in the end zone. Throughout the second quarter the ball changed hands several times as neither team could penetrate the other ' s strong defenses. The second half saw the Mariners having the situation well in hand as they completely controlled the ball. Robbins once more hit Meyers for a third touchdown and Lipscomb added the extra point. Dick Shult plunged over from the five yard marker as the score became 26 to 0. Then again in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter Robbins tossed a forty yard pass to Leon Olsliefski who carried it over for the fifth score. Frank Rack then added the extra point and the Mariners led 33 to 0. The Kingsmen threatened to score midway through the fourth quarter, but they fumbled the ball, thereby setting up another touchdown for the Gray and Blue who recovered the ball. Rack plowed over for the last touchdown and he also kicked the extra point. The remainder of the game saw most of Kings Point ' s substitutes getting action as they continued to hold Brooklyn College scoreless. And Away We Go The Visitors Are Always Welcome. Kings Point vs. Hofstra On November 7 the Gray and Blue journeyed to nearby Hofstra to play the Dutchmen of Hofstra Col- lege. On the opening kick-off halfback Nunuiata sped right down the field to draw first blood for the Dutchmen. The conversion was no good and for the latter part of the first quarter Kings Point checked all further Hofstra advances. Throughout the sec- ' ond quarter the Mariners displayed particularly fine maneuvering, both defensively and offensively. Just before the half ended Charlie Meyers scored from the four yard line on an end around play. The conversion failed and at the half the score was tied 6-6. During the entire third quarter no further scores were made by either team. The action was primarily see-saw, with only small gains both ways. However, after about five minutes in the fourth quarter, the Hofstra eleven really broke loose. With the Mariner forward wall unable to hold them back, the Dutch- men steadily marched upfield to score. The play went through the line and the conversion was good. The Mariners took possession but could not make any substantial gains. On taking the pigskin once again Hofstra lost no time in going over for another TD, the score made this time on a long aerial pitch. The Dutchmen continued to show passing accuracy as they went on to score twice more via the air with the conversions good. The game ended with the final score 33-6 in favor of Hofstra. Yes, He Caught It. Twenty Yard Gain. 1 Mud Besmeared Kings Point vs. Rochester On November 14 the Mariners played their final away game of the season as they met the University of Rochester. On the first play after receiving the opening kick-off the Gray and Blue fumbled and Rochester recovered. Taking advantage of the fumble, Rochester scored on four plays and made the score 7-0. Kings Point then got nowhere and punted to Rochester deep in their own terri- tory. Soon, however, Rochester was forced to punt also, but this time Jelke blocked the punt and Kings Point scored a safety, making the score 7-2. After receiving the ball again Carlson took the ball for a thirty yard run into the end zone, making the score 8-7. After an exchange of punts Rochester was once more deep in their own territory. Again Kings Point blocked the punt and scored another safety, making the tally 10-7 at die half time. However the the second half was a different story. Rochester took complete control for the remainder of tlie game. They struck three times through the air and on end sweeps. The final score was 25-10 in their favor. oj Kings Point vs. Adelphi Returning home after two away games, the Mariners in the final game of the season played host to the Panthers from Adelphi College. Throughout the en- tire first half Kings Point dominated and kept control of the ball but could not score when it had the op- portunity. Adelphi, however, relied on two despera- tion passes to score, one in the closing minutes of the first quarter and the other late in the second quarter. The score at half time was 13-0 in favor of Adelphi. The third quarter saw the Mariners break the ice as Le Clerc went through the Panther defenses to block a punt and score. The point after touchdown was good and the score was 13-7. Throughout the last quarter the Mariners tried desperately to score as they piled up yardage, but just could not cross the goal line. In all, the Blue and Gray gained 280 yards to 40 yards for Adelphi, but were on the shorter end of the score as they bowed 13-7. This final game of the season saw Werner, Guscott, Hamman, Le Clerc, Smith, Kinsella, Pietsch, and Rack playing their last game for the Mariners. Special tribute should be paid to the efforts of these First Classmen who, under the guidance of Coach Clem Stralka, helped make another distinguished Mariner VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM Left to Right: Coach Carmody, Lundgren, Herberger, Barron, DeMarco, Planey, Wind, Butler, Kaplan, Domini, Yee. BASKETBALL The 1953-54 basketball season can be considered one of the best in a long time at the Academy. Under the captaincy of Bob Domini the Mariner hardwood men dropped only six games of a tough schedule, with the added distinction of having beaten some of the area ' s top clubs. The quintet ' s greatest hour this season was perhaps the thrashing administered to Wagner, which boasted one of the finest records in the nation. However, it might well be argued that the RPI game, which was televised over WPIX from O ' Hara Hall, was one of the finest exhibitions ever displayed by a Kings Point team. With a healthy supply of lettermen coming back next year, the Academy is assured of victory again. TOM CARMODY Coach High Tap. Decembe 2 . 4 . 12 . 16 . 18 . January 9 . 15 . 16 . 22 . 27 . 30 .

BASEBALL TOM CARMODY ftM r The 1953 Mariner Baseball team started the season with a trip to West Point to play the Army in a prac- tice game. The team lost a scrappy 7-3 decision. From here, the Mariners went on to a season which saw them end with a 5 won, 11 lost record. That records can be deceiving is proven in a recap of the Kings Point-Fordham game which Fordham won in the last of the seventh, 4-3, on a wild pitch by Bob Ripa, Mariner pitcher who had stood the Metropolitan champions on their ears for six innings. Coach Tom Carmody was plagued by lack of pitch- ing depth, ace Ed Hansen being the sole dependable starter for the entire season. In the newly-formed Knickerbocker League, of which Kings Point is a member, the team ended with a respectable 4-3 aver- age and placed four of its men on the first Knicker- bocker League All Star team, Co-Captains Hansen and Rack, Mennona and De Socio. For 1954, Coach Carmody will have five regulars back, and if he locates the pitchers for the team, the now ten-team Knickerbocker League will surely find a contender for top spot in the diamond men from Kings Point. Returning lettermen for the 1954 season are Can- non, Domini, Smith, Dawson and De Socio. You Missed The Apple, Jack. ' AL FIORE Coach SAILING Despite poor sailing conditions and the loss of their best skippers, the " tars " managed to pull out on the winning side of their season. Most of the fall season was consumed in trying to keep the boats in repair. The dinghys have been used in all weather, every day of the sailing season, and need continuous maintenance. In the intersectional regatta at the United States Coast Guard Academy, for the Schell Trophy, the Mariners topped the best of the eastern college sailors at the end of the first day ' s races. The following day the regatta saw fluky airs and unfamiliar boats set them back to fifth place in a fleet of twelve. The high point of the season came when the combination of Ron Sutton with crew " Sam " Samuels and the high point skipper Brandt Beck with Gary Emery sailed away with the much coveted Nevins Trophy of the New York Invitational Regatta. A high winning potential was shown by the team when the plebes took a clean sweep of the Freshman Eliminations. ■ m 1 C " - - = -==- — " ' iw — - - —-- 1 . . 1 k K ' 1 T H Bi 1 MP - ' S B .T _ - - s: - dl B g h L, FRANK BARTLETT Manager H ' 53 FALL SCHEDULE Oct. 3 Hexagonal: Columbia, Fordham, Lehigh, St. Johns, Webb.

Throughout the season the hooters were a rugged and hard playing combination that never quit. The loss of Co-Captain Carl Miller, due to an injured wrist, in the early season play, hurt, but the hooters, under Co-Captain Lee Carroll showed well against all opponents. The won-lost record of 3-5 was not a true indication of the caliber that the team possessed. The losses were extremely close and the opponent was always aware of Kings Point power. With the exception of a few positions the team earned berths on the second string All-Met-Team. Many new faces were put into the spotlight. Among these, Tom Neilson, Eric Healey, George Lex and Pierre Regnier showed the most promise. Such men as Miller, Holzer, Lynch and Carroll will be hard to replace, but the new Co-Captains, Frank Shaughnessy and Norman Lipset, should prove capable of filling the gaps left by graduation. 1 October ' 53 SCHEDULE 3 . .

MIDSHIPS A Concept Through A Decade JOHN W. CARNES Editor-in-Chief Class of August 1954 Much water has passed under the keel since the words on the preceding page were written by the first editor a decade ago. Staffs have come and gone, and through their cumulative efforts almost twenty thousand copies of MIDSHIPS have found their way to the four corners of the earth. A bigger and better MIDSHIPS has been the constant goal, and although each book has reflected the individuality of its staff and the personality of the times, one tiny thread remains ... the spirit of the pioneer 1944 volume. Therefore, ten years later I too would like to say, it has been a pleasure to have been instrumental in producing this yearbook, and " May there be bigger and better MIDSHIPS in the years to come " .

Where have we gotten that support and why was it given? Throughout the maritime industry and its aUied fields, Kings Point and Midships have become a symbol of the life-blood of the industry. Fortunately, in good times and bad, there are numerous people throughout the maritime field who have an eye to the future. Without this support. Midships couldn ' t begin to achieve its present position. Their backing not only has made this book possible, but shows their firm belief in the Academy and its role in the future of the industry.

Twenty years old is a pretty respect- able age in the business of precision elertronics. Hallicrafters, born in the depression of the early thirties, and blooded in the last war, is now in its twentieth year. And in that twentieth year is tak- ing its rightful place in the elertronics industry. The first Hallicrafters receivers were built for amateur operators. The hams that have been called the most critical experts in the world. One thing about those people— they were outspoken. If they liked something, or didn ' t, they said so on the air and off. They liked Hallicrafters equipment. When the war came along there was a tremen- dous need for precise communications equipment that was rugged, that could take it on the battle- field. It was needed in quantity. Hallicrafters filled a large part of that vital need. And again, the peo- ple that used the equipment liked it. Today Hallicrafters is applying the techniques learned over the years to the produrtion of radio, television, and, of course, communications equip- ment. Other produrts have found their way into the Hallicrafters line. High Fidelity equipment for the home. Portable units for industry, that ' s the Littlefone. And other things we can ' t talk about. The people that use Hallicrafters equipment today like it, just as that first ham customer of Hallicraft- ers 20 years ago liked what he bought. That ' s all we at Hallicrafters plan for the next twenty years — a policy and produrts that people will continue to like— and continue to find depend- able. We feel that we can ' t ask for more- or deliver less— than just that. Hallicrafters products today . . . Hallicrafters television today features a number of unique design features, such as the functional " Easy-Angle " tuning panel, one-knob tuning for both UHF and VHF, plus a chassis aimed at repro- ducing all the grey tones blended into the deepest blacks and whitest highlights possible. We call it a " New Dimension in TV Pictures. " This transmitter, the Hallicrafters HT-20, is built to avoid television interference, is an ama- teur ' s dream. Its output is 100 watts on either voice or code. It is especially designed with all spurious outputs above 40 Mc, at least 90db below full rated output. All stages are metered through a single meter with eight positions. Frequency range is 1.7 Mc to 31 Mc continuous. The Hallicrafters " World-Wide " is the finest portable radio obtainable. It covers the world with eight full bands including regular AM. It plays anywhere, even on trains, planes and ships. It covers the marine beacon band that no other port- able receives. In fact, this portable is guaranteed to outperform any other portable, anywhere, any time, at any price. hallicrafters 4401 West Fifth Avenue, Chicago 24, Illinois Hallicrafters Ltd., 51 Camden Street, Toronto, Canada World ' s Leading Exclusive Manufacturer ej Communications and High Fidelity Equipment, Radio and Television Hallicrafters HT-20 Transmitter World-Wide 8-Band Portable , The flrunde Corporation BALTIMORE 2, MARYLAND Dredging - Engineering Construction Sand - Gravel - Stone Commercial Slag STRAUSS ' MARINE SCHOOL Preparatory Courses for Licenses All Grades . . .

Y. i COMPLIMENTS OF Robin Lines ' I IN THE ROYAL CANADIAN NAVY its Sperry Navigational Radar BACKED BY SPERRY SERVICE it is standard for larger vessels of the Royal Canadian Navy, for navigational purposes. ■ Sperry Navigational Radar, engi- neered with the precision that is tradi- tional with Sperry, provides information of the fine exactitude required for safe navigation. In crowded harbor or open seas, in total darkness, fog or blinding storm conditions, Sperry Radar gives ships " eyes " of unfailing accuracy to help them " see " their way safely. ■ And equally important as Sperry ' s engineering precision— is Sperry Service. Sperry field engineers, strategically located all over the world, keep Sperry Radar at peak operating efficiency. Sperry also maintains special training schools where customers ' personnel can be trained in the use and care of Sperry Radar. With Sperry Radar you can count on engineering of high precision and reliability. You can also count on quick convenient service. ■ Danger is routine to the ships of the Royal Canadian Navy. Floating ice- bergs, rocky shore lines, intense fog, all combine to make navigation difficult in every season of the year. Due to the reliability and accuracy that is so essen- tial under such conditions, Sperry Radar was installed in ship after ship.

Y. 4 THE WED STATES UUi IISTITUTE No one knows better than the U. S. Navy, the importance of the American Merchant Marine and the Marine Industries, both in wartime and in peacetime. Hence from its earUest inception, over eighty years ago, the U. S. Naval Institute and its pubhcation, the Naval Institute Proceedings, have fought for a strong U. S. Merchant Marine. Admiral Mahan, the great writer on naval warfare and national power, emphasized the importance of the Merchant Marine in some of his earliest papers in the Proceedings. Since then the Proceedings has published countless articles on the U. S. Merchant Marine and its problems. Many of the se articles have been widely reprinted or quoted, not only by magazines and news- papers, but also by nationally syndicated commentators. Recognizing the vital inter-relation between the Navy and the Merchant Marine, the U. S. Naval Institute advocates a better knowledge and understanding by each, of the problems of the other as well as of their common problems. Hence the U. S. Naval Institute extends a cordial invitation to all individuals of the Merchant Marine and the Marine Industries to become associate members of the U. S. Naval Institute. The post office address is Annapolis, Maryland. Annual dues in the Naval Institute are but $3.00, which brings with it without additional cost a full year ' s subscription to the Naval Institute Proceedings. The U. S. Naval Institute is non-profit in its purpose, all its financial resources being committed to the advancement of professional, scientific, and literary knowl- edge of the Navy and maritime and national defense matters.

It may interest you to know that the consensus of our operating division, including our machinery superintend- ent who is long experienced in this sort of work, and also the . . . opinion of (independent) representatives is that your pump units represent, in general, a very high degree of engineering skill in design and ... we are also of the opinion that you have done a very fine job of manufacturing. Our basis for this opinion is the excellent performance which your units gave under the entire operating range of main turbine load during official trials and since. This fine performance was evident both under normal rated operating load conditions and also under overload. " While it may be of a somewhat con- fidential nature, we have no hesitancy in telling you that some of the (inde- pendent) representatives who witnessed our trials also . . . expressed admiration of the performance of your pumps under unexpected load conditions. We refer particularly to an occasion when it was necessary to shut one of your pumps down with the boiler operating at full rated load, thereby throwing the entire feed water load for both boilers on to one pump. The pump handled this ex- treme condition in a manner surprising to us and, therefore, most pleasing.

It is fitting that this should be our last task, that we here inscribe the names of those groups and persons who made the 1954 MIDSHIPS a reality. To them on the eve of MIDSHIPS 1954, we extend our most sincere and deepest appreciation for a year of aid, co-operation, encouragement, and fraternity. To the Administration, for smoothing the way whenever possible. To Lcdr. V. E. Tyson, far more than an officer-adviser, a real friend. To Lt. E. H. Northrop, a thousand thanks for a thousand hints from our editorial adviser. To Mr. Fred Ball and the entire staff at New City Printing Company for their unsurpassed interest and technical advice. To Mr. George Routel and Mr. Fred Black of Routel Studios. Their cameras were the eyes of MIDSHIPS. To Mr. Emil Schmidt of Craftco Covers. We ' re proud of this cover and owe a vote of thanks to the Craftco people for the courtesy and consideration they extended. To Mr. Cyrus Judson and Mr. Frank O. Brayard of the American Merchant Marine Institute, new friends whose advice and encouragement was most welcome. To Mr. John Scherger and Mr. Jimmy Powers of the Parents and Friends Asso- ciation of Kings Point for the help in stimulating advertising interest. To the Board of Editors and the Managers of Midships for their leadership in their department and for their devotion to the yearbook. To the Midship Men and all their contributions, and to those men not officially on the staff but whose co-operation smoothed the road. To all the United States Flag Steamship Companies that so generously donated photos of their ships for our graduate section, to Mr. John Rogers, and to the House of Seagram for excellent photos. And lastly and mostly, to those who Midships so proudly reflects — to the Regiment . . . Goodbye, Good Luck, and Good Sailing. Jluc V.
