- A CCQRDTNG to the long standing custom, so old that "the memory
of man runneth not to the contrary," a preface to a book usually
takes the form of an apology for its existence. This is certainly
the conclusion we have come to after carefully reading during four
years the numerous "specially prepared" volumes of balderdash
passing incognito as text-books. .For this reason we have finally
decided on a new -departure, in presenting a book which would be
'4 'X able to stand on its own legs, as it were, without the support of
'H a quibbling, apologetic preface.
Still 'this book has a purpose-a purpose which to many of us
now is perhaps not even superficially apparent. Four years ago we made our
appearance here on the eve of a great revolution. Everything was hanging
in suspense, even the clock in the guard house stood still, waiting for a move
which was sure to come. There were rumors, mutterings, vibrations, everything
was a-quiver., Suddenly the storm broke-and-1904 was caught in the deluge.
Of -those days much has been written, more spoken, but only 1904 knows the
quantity of gray matter that was expended in thought. We were the victims
both before and after. VV e were the ones who' were charged year after year
by each graduating class to keep up the old spirit in the corps. Now we stand
alone, our work.is about finished. And you ask the question: "Have we suc-
S, Q p
ceeded ?', Your answer is in the corps right now. The corridors of time are
always open to the doubting. The comparison in some cases may be odious but
To keep alive in our memory' those days of restraint and transition is the
purpose of this book.' To some of us it will bring pleasant reminiscences made
mellow by the magic touch of time-to others only grim reminders of toil and
labor whose sting has been softened because they are part of the past. Our
future is not a cloudless sky, but even if cloudy, we have the balm in knowing
that at least a few of those fleecy clouds in that chimerical azure blue beyond
must have a silver lining. Vvfe leave, hoping that the good-will and friendship
existing between the different classes isras ripe and sincere as it has been
pleasant to us. A '
Perhaps as you turn these pages you will find many things omitted-pen
haps many have been inserted that should have been omitted. However that
may be, do not attribute it to the lack of material to work with, on one side,
or to the absence of the Editors, blue pencil, on the other. Gur one aim has
been to portray every scene as it actually existed and appealed to us. If this
book succeeds in this, it will not grow yellow with age in vain.
In conclusion, let it be understood that this bool: is not the Work of a
few men. It would have had an untimely 'death but for the hearty co-operation
of every member of the class of IQO4, to Whom all thanks are due.

"VVhy should we be so military, V
If a fact you must know then why don't you go
And write to the XV,ar Secretary?"
A most peculiar mortal, fully understood by himself

some day to write a' book on mysticism. Wea1's glasses
to improve his complexion and when sitting for a photo-
graph. Reads Emerson's essays for a vocation, and Walks
the area for recreation-except when he is in the hospital
on a vacation which, by a peculiar coincidence, is generally
during these "hours of recreation."

Condemn the fault and not the actor. ' Never talks unless
he has something to say. Coming from the sun-kissed

I'll bet you he still wears his grin,
That smirk so insipid and thin,
The smile he has worn since the day he was born,
And which helped him a stay-back to win.
1 His .birtheplace explains his cognomen. Spoons at all
"available times and sometimes overtime. His cast-iron
patented smile is enough to stop the Guard House clock.
Although his manner of approach is copied a'fter the

'Stell Berry ain't much at a hop, Q
But he takes, in New York, time to shop. ,
VVith a lass on each arm he creates much alarm,
And citizens yell for the cop.
Here we have an impassive countenance on a coy and
shy young man. Seeking to soothe his ruffled brain by
music's sweet strain, he has lately attempted to play the
phonograph. From his extensive repertoire he usually falls
back on 'tThe Water Wag'011." The grinds he springs on
you as ones he has heard, clearly demonstrate that the
day of his birth antedates the deluge. ln fact, he is sus-
pected of being closely related to that notorious author of
the barbaric age, C. Smith, simply because his witticisms
and bon-mots are so lucid and evident.

Much ado about nothing. A great conversationalist

his "hundred a minute" with ease, never lacks something
to say, but only something to talk about. B. I. Richardson,
who sometimes grows elofnuent. compares his riding to a

hand-made nor tailor-made, but has made an impression

You've heard how our friend Wilber Blain
In camp, climbing trees, went insane.
His teeth held a sword, his nails the tree clawed,
YVhile he sought for the Greaser in vain.
A man whose voice belies his size. His physical ap-
pearance might strike terror, but when he speaks all the
thoughts of his ferocity are quickly dispelled. The proud
,possessor of a Walk that is inimitable: to see him amble by
makes one think of Esorfs tortoise. ln his youth he took
life easy, but time has made a change-not for the better.
Ambition sometimes comes late-but never too late to speck.

This oracle is truly a mystery. He does all those
foolish things which great nfen generally clo. and never
fails to save all lns superfluous energy for another time.
The only time he ever appears as if moving on an anti-
'fl'lCtlOl1 surface is in camp. 'Vltenvhe s-'erefally spends his
time carrying parasols upto Fort :'Put." W'hen he returns
he takes a holiday and does not want to be medcllecl with.

Should 'he ever be compelled to subsist on half-rations, we

A gem of purest ray serene. The college of P's have
sought him as a fine specimen for the tray that rests on

bland smile and wish-bone stare, that they have yet to
catch him with the goods on. But, alas! Has he not

At base ball Nick Carter's quite iinef
Pitching lowballs is right in his line,
VVl1en he stands in the box, then everyone knocks, .
And says hels the worst on the nine.
His soft dark eyes and raven locks are the inspiration
of the femmes and the ingenuity of man. As a boy detec-
tive he can trace even the owner of a small lace handker-
chief. Not having any matrimonial intentions just now,
you can hnd him on sick report any day of the week except
Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Une of his few fail-
ings is his ability-to put a ketchup bottle to shame at the
mention of pajamas. His one motto is, 'The 6th or bust."

This kitten claims that a true sportsman should spoon
only 'those femmes who are engaged. Naturally therefore
he has been a principal in many Uafflaires d'honneur" over
lovers' quarrels. He has been known to become so absorbed
in the game that he once tried to drive a team up the
railroad track-so entranced with the scenery that he had
to be told to wake up. Next day he received a wedding

Paul Henry, of brilliant point fame,
New honors afhxecl to his name,
By a speech at St. Cyr, in French he'd learned here.
Now wou1dn't you say .he was game!
In him we have one bequeathed to us by IQO3, and by
us retained as long as we could, and loth we are to. let him
go. He reached the top rung of that ladder Fame by his
demonstration of the method of hnding the brilliant point
on an egg. We earnestly hope he will not stop, there.
That he may speedily follow us into the service, as. sound
in body as he has always been in character is the earnest
wish of his classmates of IQO4.

New Orleans., La..
Runt Dillard is quite a blind spec,
Hefs buried in tenths to his neck,
At night by the light of our satellite bright,
He gathers them in by the peck.
Although he is a heinous, .heartless heart breaker, he' has
acquired most of his reputation as a great grandstand
breaker. Has bought ten dress coats since furlough+since
then always sleeps' with his straight front on. A The bad
iniiuence he has exerted on Martin Dooley Wheeler is the
scandal of the runts. Though quite small, there is a rumor
abroad that there is still hope.

Not the dipper at Double Pipe Creek.
Although he has ambitions to go with a circus, we have
nnally persuaded him to stay in the Army. He has resigned
himself to his fate and is now working on what is to be his
masterpiece: "Darwin's Theory Exploded, Man Not De-

Yes, Hawley's an excellent scout,
A 7th man put him to rout.
He started to run and gave up his gun
For he could go faster without. '
Although not a 'member of the "Change," he is always
looking for some one to trade him a box of Cadet Store
paper. The most extensive correspondent since the days
of Ducrot. We have reason to suspect' that he intends to
start a correspondence school, "How to make 'love by mail."
Believes in the old motto: "Two is one and three is too
many," and when in doubt, always says sweet things about
the Tactical Department.

Dick Herman from morning till night,
Billet-doux to his sweetheart does write.
Says he's not to blame, it's just a nice game,
But Cupid has nailed him all right.
As an infant he was a howling success. As a stripling
he was the fashion plate of his native heath. As a cadet-
well, we hate to say-but there are rumors afloat that he
has done the remarkable feat of jumping into the meshes
of Cupid and sewing himself hp from the inside. The cor-
puscles of his blood are a green mixture of Mozambique
English, Dutch and Vedic, the -exact proportions of the
ingredients not being known.

Poughkeepsie once harbored a belle,
Bill Bailey soon learned this real well.
He went there on leave, and can you conceive
Why the girls turned spry Bill out a yell?
Is becoming more bashful every year and cannot be
coaxed into society even with such inducements as hash
parties and after taps pink teas. His walk resembles very
much the motion of an eccentric on a milling machine-4
minus the governor. He can live for weeks on no other
nourishment than a fleeting smile, and whenever in trouble
quickly hies himself to Brunzell, on whose chest he. weeps
glistening, hriny tears of misery.

' Boning gall'ry one day, he was dropped by Tom K.
.And deep in the sod his face plowed.
Until last summer this man was one of the most charita-
ble dispensers of woe and happiness to femininity the class
ever knew. And everyone wonders what made the supply
cease. The only conclusion we can draw is that he centered
all his charity on some single person and let the other
.damsels die of starvation. Oh! happy death! His one am-

This man is really harassed-not by "femmes" but by

certain rumors coming from a small hamlet in Mass. David

Of hair-oils he has a large stock,
Of hair he has hardly a lock.
Spite of measures heroic, this bald-headed stoic
Can't make the hair grow on his block. '
As the result of the extra amount of slum on the menu
and the increased hygrometric qualities of the milk since
the recent watering of the Mess Hall stocks, he has had to
have a nurse to keep him from overeating himself. Between
looking up ,advertisements for hair renovators and anti-
fat cures, he has become prematurely oldg but we hope he
may succeed in finding the Fountain of Youth.

At Stockbridge last summer they say,
Hump Hunter on beefsteak did stray.
He grabbed it and rang the feed then began,
On slum the tacs feasted next day.
"He dreams of healths tive fathouis deep." Said to be
a youth of infinite receptive capacity-for math-and seltzer
water. Not being enough of a musician to distinguish
between calls for "reverse" and "countermarch," he does
not enjoy hops as much as some other things. Has a fond-
ness for Jewelry and loves to decorate his friends with
little tokens of ,esteem such as lockets, earrings, etc. - Call

He's the laziest man in the Corps.
The charming author of "How 'to be Happy in Con."
The only way to appreciate his humor is first to hear him

This man is the dear "ArtlQur" of many letters of love

He is famous for his books., "How to get skins 0ff"' and

But he'd never confess, though itfs true none the less,
His chief joy is chewing the brown.
The lad with the shining morning face. He loves to
entertain the femmes with skirt dances on the infantry
plain, and maintains that the -only place to spoon is up an
apple tree, hanging by the coat-tail with both arms free.
He is the first' man to apply the principles of the rolling
cone and least squares to the hop-room floor. Does every
body and everything with mathematical precision. Some ,clay

I-TEN Antony spoke at the bier of Caesar, he came to bury him and
not to praise him. This little sketch has neither of these purposes.
It is simply ia brief recital of the incidents attending our passage as
a class, through the Academy. As such we began our existence in
June of the year nineteen hundred, but the real class existed long
before, and it would indeed be interesting, if we had the time,
space and facilities, to trace the individuals from the cradle until
they became intrepid soldiers, with chins hidden in their collars and
1- shoulder blades grinding together. Should we look back we would
probably find "Nap" Riley, the heavy-weight pride of the country,
"jake" Dew, the ,reliance of the home fire department 3. "Bill" Copp, the noisy
burden of the community 5' f'Snitz" Gruber, playing a hand organ, I-larbold,
valiantly leading the Dillsburg brigade, "Tom', Gimperling, inventing fairy
tales, 'lReggie', ll-Iolderness, inllove but with an ever changing objective 5
"Aunt Polly" Diller, wearing green stockings, "Tow" Benedict, faithfully
'fbon'ing" royal pedigrees, "Sandy" MCAHCl1'CYV, breaking broncosg Glass, run-
ning a green goods shop, and so on through the long list of our variously dis-
tinguished members. 'Tis -to be feared that we miss much of the shocking and
the interesting. If so, it is entirely through-policy.
It was indeed a motley crew that entered the Academy under the sobriquet
of "The Class of IQO4H-111116 plebes, Iuliets and, last but not least, one lonely

credit a rigid examination on the works of Capt. Charles King, Hugh Reed

andthe Cadet Register, but how different it was from what we anticipated.
Every moment was occupied, from reveille to taps. It was a merry-go-round
from morning till night, with plenty of extra rides for those who distinguished
themselves sufficiently to attract attention. The "Keeley" cure, the first thing.
in the morning 5 the double timing to the intoxicating music of
the metronome 3 and after each meal, to assist digestion, drills-
soirees we learned to call them afterwards, then explanations, written
and re-written for the sole purpose of re-writing them again, and then in the
evening, a little social call at the oflice, where we yvere given so much atten-
tion that we decided to call oftener. And so every one looked forward with
pleasure to camp. And it was well that we looked forward to it with pleasure,
for there was none either in going or in having gone. fa
CADET MESS, 1900 .
There may be events in a cadetis life at the Academy, which have been so
pleasant that he can never forget them. But the things which are perhaps most
indelibly traced on his memory, are the happenings of those worst of night-
mares, beast barracks ,and plebe camp. Can we ever forget the sort of dream
we lived in, a dream broken only by sudden and rude awakenings. Can we ever
forget the days when we had to get up before reveille to shave, or else go
unshorn 3 those solemn night watches with burning tapers and crossed bayonets,
over the silent body of a dead ratg and then the next day, with weeping and
gnashing of teeth, performing that most touching of all ceremonies, a rat fun-
eral? Can we ever forget that eternal sleepiness, the stolen naps in Fort Clin-
ton, or in the barber's chair, under the hot, sun-drenched tent? Always in
a hurry and yet always -late, always working madly and yet seemingly never
accomplishing anything, always in the wrong when' we would have sworn
that we were in the right, smiled upon by the ladies-thus we called them in
those primordial days, legislated by a kind but mistaken Congress, with the ad-
vice and consent of the VV. C. T. U. Verily, we were the most puzzled and
most unhappy of mortals. And yet in one sense, the only one, we were the
happiest. Vtfe were '!Plebes" under the old regime, and with the passing of
that old regime has passed all the excitement, all the necessity for good, clear
grit, all the training given by those few strenuous weeks.
In those days we looked upon a guard tour as a blessing from divine Prov-
idence. Right smartly would we walk up and down our post, generally obey-
1 ff orders to "watch that squirrel on the other end", constantly on the alert,
kee ing a, sharp lookout for all upper classmeng straining eye and ear for any
indication of the enemy, imagining an Indian behind every tree, a Spaniard

in every shadow, and more terrible still, yearlings everywhere. The silver-
tongued speeches of "Fritz,' Singles, the flowery perorations of 'fThree-square"
Meals, and the Herculean feats of the "D" Co. babies will never be forgotten.
Andi how carefully did those of us in the runt companies avoid those little side
shows on the flank, particularly "The Bowery" and "Paradise Alley? There
was a slight respite when those darlings, "The Iulietsf' arrived on the scene.
Only the old law 'in Economics can explain this change-concentration at one
point necessarily produces distribution at another. And then came 'fTl1umina5
tion,', with all its trials and tribulations. Credit we received noneg now and
then some "femme',-so we had learned to call them now-would say sweetly

' We then moved back into barracks, the scene of our first engagement. The-
Vrapid succession of events began to tell on us now. VVe were hardly in condi-
tion to begin the winter's work, which we nevertheless welcomed, for the first
and only time. A few of us went out to bone 'itoast' on the foot ball team.
Many answered the call, but few were chosen. At last we played the Navy.
Defeat had but one comfortg our own little "Dumpy" and old "Ambrosia"
Finn played admirably. Early in the winter we had a class meeting, electing
Atkins, President, and Campbell, Vice-President, and they served us faithfully,
until all class organizations were proscribed by the famous "Golden Bull." At
first "boning', was a pleasant change from. "bracing," but long before Christ-
mas the novelty had worn off, and instead of sweeping clean, it looked as if C.
Smith would make a clean sweep of us. As a result of the first skirmish with
the Academic Board, we lost sixteen privates, all number four, rear rank.
just about this time the Booze affair was brought to our attention by sev-
eral of the yellow journals. They were soon scattering broadcast the most
blood-curdling tales and denunciations. This resulted in the appointment of an
Investigating Committee. One member especially took a keen delight in apply-
ing to the witnesses the hardest names in his vocabulary. This man has since
been convicted in a criminal trial for accepting bribes, and is no longer eligible
to ofhce under the United States. Under pressure we had a meeting in the
mess hall, where we passed a joint resolution to quit the practice of hazing, as
far as the four classes assembled were concerned, Our pledge was incorporated
in a report and presented to the Committee. From the result, this did not have
a great effect. The findings of the Committee were 'fthat we were guilty of
hazing, but not of murder." In February the first class graduated and we
attended our first graduation parade in the snow. Tiff March we finally decided
to inaugurate the President. Our walk through the streets of VVashington was
what you might call delightful. The combination of dress hats and overcoats
seemed to please the inhabitants better than it did us. The next day we took
another stroll. Desiring to disguise ourselves and being quite cold, with a
promise of rain, we left our overcoats behind. The promise, by the way, was
well fulfilled. Cn our return we found excitement rather low, so a coup
d'etat in the form of a "demonstration" was planned and remarkably well exe-
cuted. As a result of an investigation, the area once more resounded to the pitter-
patter of mearching feetg and nineteen-four did not fail to get honorable mention.
Tl1iS WHS the time when Kingman and Pettis acquired their martial stride and
"I-lumptyu Hunter developed that intense thirst which has ever since consumed
And now we became yearlings. As a new camp was being constructed, we
were domiciled in barracks. But the new "beasts" arrived shortly and chased
us over to Camp "Slouchenberg,', where nightly we remained awake, playing
on a foot tub to the tune of "Mosquito Parade." Here it was that 'fl-Iilarious
Hip" Robert began his famous career as a hoppoid, engaging himself to attend
one hundred successive nights unless physically disabled. VVe were upheld by
the thought of the Pan-American, kept constantly before us by the band, which
seemed to have forgotten everything but "Put me off at Buffalo." They played
at reveille, taps, parades, concerts and even at a funeral, either out of tune or
out of time. Every one enjoyed it, even the Pan-handlers on the Midway.
Buffalo 'Bill tried to get Moody for his .Rough Riders and "Tub" Wilsoii for
the fat man from Mozambique. Both offers, however, were graceful-ly turned
down. W'as ever so much crowded into such a short time: theatres, japanese
village, Loop-de-Loop, Streets of Cairo, Moonlight on the Niagara, 2oth Cen-
tury Dance and the greatlCasino hop-truly a hop, as it was impossible to
dance. And then the sumptuous banquets at Statlers, three times a day, to the
patriotic strains of "Dolly C-ray." If the temperance and Army Canteen ques-
tion had come up during our stay, most of us would have been found "on the
fencef' depending of course on the time of the day. After waiting three hours
for "faked, Dew and "Bill" Copp' to break away from their "sweethearts," we
left the Electric City with heartfelt thanks for the delightful reception and
hospitality we had received.
And now, once more, back to the mines, to toil and labor for 1.5 per day.
This year we determined never again to be beaten by the Navy, and were not
disappointed. The Iooth Night Entertainment reminded us that june and fur-
lough were near. Then came the Centennial Celebration, which will long be re-
membered by all who were present. And then "Fiurlough," preceded by the
great furlough parade, led by Farnsworth, as Aphrodite.
After depositing our ordnance property in a sloboon in the Sth Div., to be
drawn again with interest in the shape of four and five, we started in search
of adventure. VVe spent a very pleasant evening with "Dolly Vardon,"e and at
the supper forgot tacs, tours and confmements. Copp was toast master but
was unable to officiate, due to various causes. The time passed rapidly and
pleasantly and before we were aware of it the end was looming large in our
path. The last carousal at the Murray Hill showed that class spirit was not so
much bosh after all. When we stepped off the ferry boat, a bunch of tacs was
awaiting us. The usual inspection for contraband articles produced nothing
new, all class rings having been left in safe keeping. We reached camp in time
to miss the evening parade. The 'flfurlough hop" that night showed how fickle
man can be. "Bob" Campbell forgot all his faithful promises of the last night
at home, and Conger Pratt recognized a pair of blue eyes which he thought
might in time develop.
It was indeed hard to buckle down to the old routine again after a taste of
freedom, but this year there was a chance for Christmas leave. Philadelphia
once more, with usual result-this was getting to be monotonous. Contrary to
the usual custom, we lost four men in our second class year. After that, every
one felt that it would not be his fault if he did not graduate. The class was
again well represented in the Iooth Night play, "The Caprices of Cupid," with
"Snitz,' Gruber as King Ping Pong in the title role, while Dew immortalized
himself with his song, "Columbo.,' In the spring of IQO3, we visited New York
twice, the hrst time to do a few "stunts" at the Military Tournament, travel-
rxxling' on the good old ship "Pegasus," and the second, under the auspices of
tie Drawing Department with the Art Museum as an object. f'Aunt Polly"'
D1 iler spent all his time gazing upon ainude statue, just like some country bump-
kin, while "Tom7' Gimperling discovereda new artist, who could use color better
than his old friend Rumley. It was a relief to most of us to reach the end of
our course in the school of profanity-there is no drawing in the first class
course. In june, IQO3, we saw the graduation of the last of the classes who had
acted as our preceptors in the elements of braceology. Our regret was very
deep indeed, for our relations had always been the most cordial.
Vile had been given to understand that first class camp was somewhat in
the nature of a "soiree," but we found it far otherwise. The cavalry drills de-
veloped -some "rare seats," "Bouly" Alley and "Loui', Reynolds especially dis-
tinguishing themselves. "Liz" Scott came to the conclusion that "guidon" was
the only place for him, while the Captain in charge of the Artillery drill gave
us some ine exhibitions of the easiest way to dismount a horse. Cold Springs
seemed 'to have quitea call as a summer resort, while over in "F" Company the
nights were made hideous by "Dutch picnics" out in the Summer Garden. "No-
sey" Cooper was caught playing golf in Hirtation, paying considerable attention
to the manner of approaching. Especially memorable was the ride to Peekskill,
in which we lost but one carbine, after a wild charge through three feet of
water. Then came the trip to Stockbridge, with its cavalry hops and midnight
suppers, at which "Generals only" were permitted to attend. Target practice-
developed four sharpshooters and one marksman, not to mention the grand army
of third class riflemen. And here is where we found our greatest
hardship: As plebes, we cleaned any one's gun who was kind
enough to notice us. But as first-class men, when we could have spent
the entire afternoon in the arms of Morpheus, we found ourselves diligently
smearing our dignified fingers with cosmic oil, pomade and all that other para-
phernalia usually the property of plebes. Our 'expectations were not fulfilled
and it was the plebes who slept. Through the efforts of "Hip" Robert and his
"spoonoid" crew, we succeeded in having another 'fllluminationf' "D" Co. "Re-
treat" and the "FH Co. "Labyrinth" served us in spooniifg the fair sex and los-
ing undesirable chaperones. And on the 23th we closed our last camp, with
the usual ceremony of dragging half our wardrobe across the plain and scat-
tering the other half between camp and barracks.
Shortly after our arrival in barracks, our wandering attention was called
to the fact that "Cadets will not be allowed to use tobacco? From time im-
memorial had we been reminded of this fact, so no one could see the necessity
of reading it again. But the next words, "except in barracks," explained the
whole situation. For several days the law of supply and demand seemed to have
gone out of business. The first of the trips arranged for the instruction of the
class was to the Horse Show. "Humpty" Hunter, as usual, entertained us with
classic poetry, while "lfVillie" Scott demonstrated the personal equation of
"Liz" Scott. There was much disagreement whether to beat the Navy this
year or wait until the next. But the result showed the unanimity of opinion.
After New Yearis we decided to wear our class rings. "Martin Dooley" and
others had been doing this by proxy for some time. All our spare time was
taken up by lectures and insurance agents. The Iooth Night play was more
successful than ever, 'owing to the artistic ability of several members of the
class. W atervliet and Gettysburg both came and went, and graduation less than
a hundred days off. Altogether this was the shortest year of all, and the most
enjoyable, and as it drew to a close we found that the approaching separation
'was not unaccompanied by a tinge of sadness. Qui' stay at St. Louis was more
than pleasant, its description we will leave for the succeeding classes. Everyone
was glad to get back, however, for the eventful June 15.
The graduation parade was-well what can it be called, impressive or de-
pressing? VV' ith regret we took a last long look at' all those familiar scenes.
What memories did they not all recall! It was indeedhard to part from all
the pleasant associations and friends of those four years of never-ceasing labor.
Time and again had we said, "Never again," but we experienced a very differ-
ent feeling as we thought of never again assembling as a class after that last
eventful evening, when we sang for the last time as cadets, the last strain to
Army Blue' ' Now, fellows, we must say good-bye,
We've stuck our four years through,
Qui- future is a cloudless sky,
VVe'll don the Army Blue.
Army Blue, Army Blue, ,
Hurrah for the Army Blue!
We'll bid farewell to Cadet gray
And don the Army Blue--
and with sorrowing hearts we Went our different ways some of us
, never to
meet again on this World's battlefield. Wliatever the future holds for us, be
it fame or obscurity, our most cherished thoughts will always be of the Corps,
its traditions, its glorious motto, "Duty, Honor, Countryi' and the good old
Class of Nineteen Hundred and Four. And thus falls the curtain upon an-
other chapter in the history of the Academy.

HE morning of the Ioth of june, Anno U. S. M. A. QQ QA .D. IQOID,
I there might have been seen wending their way toward the Military
Academy, a number of youths from every part of this broad land,
5, M, variously attired and differently formed, but of one mind and heart
as to the way in which the Nation's Nursery should be run, and
before each of whose T1'll11Cl,S eye was the banner with the strange
C device, "Excelsior," Ah! VVhich of them 'then realized that for four
7 A long years he would eat that strange device for Sunday morning
breakfast? It took about two minutes for an orderly and the
Supt's clerk to destroy eighty per cent. of administrative acumen,
and about two minutes more for the Busy Bees in the area to rid us of the
remainder of our personal equation. -
However, we went at beast-barracks and bucked the Cadet Store, and
kow-towed' to the King and the Busy Bees, with rather dazed brains, but hopeful
hearts. VVe drilled, and ran, and jumped, and smoked on the Q. T., and cleaned
fusils and ourselves, and secretly reviled the Busy Bees, and walked the area,
but always we were sweltering in the heat. The only luminous point in our Held
of view was the Lynx. Who's he, you ask? A gentleman who made things
seem easier by his presence and personality, and gave us the good impression
of the Tac Department, so soon to be destroyed, never to return. '
.- v fr
r, , 1
After two weeks of this harum-scarum existence we proudly hit camp, firm
in the conviction that we were IT. But--Plebe camp, that's all! There were
so many, many things that were new to us g such funny fellows, such a peculiar
language. There we learned to swim the stormy seas in the tank, to trip the
festive toe in Cullum, to pedestrianate on guard, to dodge the Tacs, to do
something while doing nothing, to police the company street without sweeping.
and a multitude of other strange and wondrous things. Then on the 25th of
July, the latest instalment of building material was carted onto the post in the
persons of the juliets. XVill we ever forget how we patted ourselves on the
back and felt proud when we saw those funny wooden images?
Buffalo I! Hi-hi ll How well we remember the hard knocks of Biffalo and
the Midway? There was the upper room of the Mexican Village with its bal-
cony, the underground railway over the fence back of camp, and Biffalo herself.
It was hard to come back to the Point, but we did, after many good-byes and
much tearing of heart-strings.
The succeeding nine months was a dull, unending repetition of such wise
sayings, and old saws as: 'KI aiu required-"5 mln explanation of-"3 "Guard,
lunge, guardwg als that not so ?" "Young gentlemen of the-H and so on, and
so on a cholera infantum. At last we emerged into another camp only succeed-
ing in breaking our cocoon by the effort required to win the Field Day.
This camp, beginning as it did with the Centennial Celebration, promised
to be a momentous one in the history of the Corps. VV e were yearlings now 3'
we would show 'em a fewg we would run the Corps rightg we would make the
Tacs buck up and acknowledge our prestige. But things went wrong somehow,
and after numerous squelchings, most of us found a hole, crawled in, pulled it'
in after us and lapsed into innocuous desuetude until September. Most. but not
allg there were Lothairios who had to Hutter round a flame, and the athletes who-
cheerfully batted the bounding gutty up and down the plain, and romped in glee
upon the tennis-courts.
Back to the mines in September, for another "rastle" with C. Smith's HComic"
Sections, and the rhombohedral, hyperbolic, epil epsiloidal, parabolodrical helicoid
with a brilliant point and two Boards of Directors. . These. with art studies
drawn by us under the direction of Him, calculating calculations in calcule, and
a stammering, whistling whirl with the B. S. Department aroused us until it
became necessary to get down to work and win the Field Day again. The
monotony was varied at times by the bright and cheerful ways of those kind
gentlemen, the out-titters and tailors, who advised us to turn over our furlough
pin-money to them for safe-keeping.
At last the millenium arrived and we could go free for ten weeks. A ten
weeks' crimson sunset. Most of us wanted to see whether the sun rose in a dif-
ferent way from that used at the Point, and so stayed up to see on that first
night, for fear of missing the spectacle. XV hat those ten weeks meant to each
man we cannot, of course, say, we cannot answer for all. But to some of us
they were the most joyous, care-free, happy, effervescent ten weeks ever known.
The only precipitate in the solution of happiness was the realization that the days
were quickly flying by, and that all too soon, we must return to that place over
the gateway of which might be placed a fac-simile of what Dante found
written over a certain other place, "All hope abandon ye who enter here."
TN hen finally we were back again, it was hardto settle down to work, and
to keep sweet memories of fairy forms and stony steins from looping-the-loop
in our think-box. Our studies were supposed to be practical. The monumental
ellipsisisalloid, the rolling cone, the central forces, the explosions in the lab., some
one leaving the H2 S faucet open, all these are old stories to those who are
most likely to read this. But now, ah now, who can tell itly of the beautiful
undulatory motion in XWillie's appendicitis auricularis, or explain the paradox
of studying fossils of the primordial beaCl1 from living specimens of extant in-
habitants, or why is a volt? E
S0011 now, these things will all be Qver, and our much-needed rest will come.
This rest will be our last camp here, oU1' 'fFi1'St Class Campf, For nearly three
years have we had First Class Camp dinned in our earsg its joys and sorrows,
drills and plays, its beauties and L. Pfs, and so on. WVe cannot but look for-
ward to it with eagerness, not only because it is our First Class Camp, but be-
-cause when September comes we can gather round the water-tank and let our
sweet voices rise and quaver in the joyous, though plaintive wail of "Never
It is too early to make prophecies, the mosquito must buzz before you
can catch him. But all looks prosperouS fO1' US 'fl1iS CUSUi1'1gj'C2l1'. From what
we can judge of that which our predecessors have told us, our hardest work will
be behind us in june, and we can lay back, smoke up and through the rings we
blow, see pleasant prospects in the future, all lighted up by the sun of graduation
just rising above the horizon.
Then here's to I9o5!! You have lost many who fell by the wayside and
who, perhaps, have sprung up and brought forth good fruit elsewhere, but
some have come to you from other classes to take the places of those who tripped
and fell in mounting the ladder made from the Academic Board. Victories have
been Won by you in the Field Days, and your name stands high- on the honor
rolls of those who have upheld the honor and prestige of West Point on the grid-
iron and on the diamond. And, more important in the long run, greatest has been
your success in that portion of the work here for which the Academy was pri-
marily founded, Academic duties. May your name and honor be ever kept un-
defiledg may the start you have made here help you to greater successes and
more enduring fame in the future. And may each one of us, your sons, realize
that next to our Alma Mater and the ideas embodied in the Corps motto, that
which we should love and honor and uphold most stoutly and most truly is
"Our Class," 1905.

HE Class of 1906 did not enter the Academy as many classes do, with
the determination to revolutionize everybody and everything con-
nected with the institution. lVe were content to let things come in
the same old way-needless to say they did. Wie, that is, the greater
number of us, arrived here on the 16th of june, duly armed with
credentials, -high hopes and higher aspirations. XNe were at once
turned over to the not very tender mercies of f'Acting Makes" and
Yearling Corporals. They say that some of the accessories of former
E N Y
receptions were omitted in our case. If they were, we never missed
them, but found life warm enough to suit the most fiery-minded
"Beast Barracks" was an awful nightmare. How we survived we know not.
These first experiences took some of the jauntiness and Hippancy out of us, but
they left a still stronger determination to see what the end was like. lVe had

low-spirited 'fbeastsf' All agreed on one thing, namely, that life at XV est Point
is not one long mid-summer's dream, but more in the nature of a nightmare.
' We went to our first parade g one was enough. We were given to understand
that we were the worst lot that ever made an effort to disgrace the good name
of the Academy. VV e couldn't see the underlying' whys and wherefores then, so
we truly grieved. We know better now. VVe marched on guard the first time.
CThere were so many things we did for the Hrst time that weary summerj
Duly impressed with the sacred trust of a sentry, our over-active imagination
saw the queerest of sprites and spirits behind every stump and in every shadow,
The terrors of that night still haunt our peaceful Hpipesu of Furlough. How
we needed a Moses to guide us through our sea of troubles! "Father,' Abraham
tried his best to head us, but never succeeded in 1nore than heading the "skin-
listl' every night. During the summer we took a short trip to Stony Point, to
seethat a tablet to "Mad,' Anthony VVayne was properly dedicated. After
marching some 6 or IO miles through the dust and over the hills, imagine our
great joy when we were given coupons calling for the stupendous amount of
fifty cents, and were told to buy whatever we wantedj The class of 1906 will
dedicate no more tablets.
On the 25th of july we were reinforced by about thirty-five "Iuliets." We
were glad they came, they were, too-for almost five minutes. The "Acting
Makes" and Yearling Corps repeated their gyrations on the poor lads, but with
a greater degree of polish. - Wie cannot say that the product was more polished,
for "Tompo" is a Juliet. 'fNuff said." They showed themselves of the right
stuff and we became one. . V'
In due time that summer passed and back we went to the scene of our
first rendezvous. But some how, life in barracks did not develop into the beau-
tiful dream-picture that had been ours. VVith the opening of fall foot-ball
season came the first opportunity to show our abilities on the athletic field. And
that we were not lacking in this direction, any one will testify to who saw
Harry Torney play foot-ball on Franklin Field, or Charlie Rockwell knocking
the ball into the river during the base-ball season. I
Gn the first of September we moved forward to attack the allied Math. and
B. S. Departments. VVe found them strongly intrenched behind breastworks of
Big Green B. S., Little Green B. S. and Big Red B..S., with Fisher's Geometry
as a reserve. During the entire engagement they kept up a steady fire of C.
Smith's Algebra. This became more and more concentrated on our rear and in
a hand-to-hand conflict in December, the enemy withdrew with four prisoners.
Our Napoleonic qualities were again in the ascendency, however, and we fore-
saw that another encounter was inevitable. Meanwhile the enemy had brought
up reinforcements in the form of Trig, La Langue Francaise, with batteries of
Edison's modern rapid-nre French-speaking phonographs. The encounter came
as expected, the enemy making use of Infantry and Artillery Tactics, as a "ruse
de guerref' By March we were conducting a masterly retreat, giving a "tenth,'
here and a "tenth" there, but Pelot and the other "speckoids" gallantly held
the center. By a sudden swift descent -on our rear guard, the hostile forces
sent two more of our number disabled to their homes, there to await further
orders. Now indeed the fray became nerce. The opposing force moved down
upon us with more reinforcements, but we faced them undauntedly. By a sud-

den onslaught in june, four more of our men were made to bite the dust. But
.the enemy was weary and much battered, so that he was forced to agree to a
fffittrtice of three months.
On the Irth of june, Graduation Day, we finished our Plebedom and entered
into the glory CFD of our Yearling stripe. The year just past had been a long
hard initiation, but it was worth all the hardships to feel that hand-clasp and
Q30 hear that hearty greeting of welcome to the Corps.
l1.i4jf,,, Finally we girded on our ponchos and high overshoes, and by a combination
wading and swimming arrived at Yearhng Camp. But no sooner had camp
settled than a wonderful phenomenon occurred. The sun shone brightlv

Hercextlarifij ilfiad been before June. A steady fire of "Descrip', compelled us to
send to the rear, While "La Grammaire F rancaisew kept a con-
stant draiif on rciur stores of "tenths," Moreover, the enemy employed instru-
ments off toiiturelx in direct violation of the laws of modern warfare. These
machines of? were f'Drawing', and 'fRidingf' French is bad, Math.
infinitely worse,ib1i.t'bDraivi11g' is so bad that language fails in its description. And
riding, Well,Fgri,din'g is riding-that is all. Of all the wild, untamed, unmanage-
able, hard-mofithed, razor-backed, stiff-legged trotters intended to worry, harass
and in general ,make the life of a poor Yearling miserable, from personal ex-
perience we must say that the present collection is the very worst ever. Between
applying soothing lotions to our bruised members and boning HDescrip," we
were kept busy until january, when the Math. Department made one last de-
spairing effort to !'f1nd"' the entire class. The best they could do was to weaken
us to the extent of five. '
But we have no more fears, for in "calcul"'we can differentiate anything
from MXH to a new suit of Furlough "cits." In a day or two we are going home
to our mothers and sisters and chum's sister, so who cares for Math., Drawing,
Spanish or even Riding? '

D X ' N 'Tune 15th, IQO3, a new planet appeared upon the horizon. Almost
simultaneously the class of 1907 drew in their respective chins. 'Tis
the part ofthe romantic W7 est Point Novel to tell the trials, the
unique experiences, the hundred incidents of a Plebe's life, To un-
derstand fully the varied sensations of a Plebe, it is necessary to be
one, if but for a dayg or bet ter yet, read the history of some other
Plebe class. For all classes, during their first years, pass through
much the same experiences. 1
An eminent critic has said that in writing biography we should
c ask ourselves unceasingly, these two questions: "XNhat and how pro-
duced was the subject's effect on society P" "VV hat and how produced was the
effect of society on him ?" Since it is known that a Plebe has no effect on soci-
ety, we have only to consider the latter 5 and we do not purpose to answer it
directly. VV' e hope that it may appear not too vaguely, in the course of this un-
pretentious autobiography, that, as in former years, so in IQO3, the candidates
gathered at VVest Point about the middle of june. They were the usual hetero-
geneous mass with all the different slouches: the stiff tin slouch, the college
swagger-slouchg the fashionable slouch, and the slouch otherwise+predomi-
nantly otherwise. In this number there were men who, with their friends, re-
garded themselves as Caesars in embryo. Men who, through pure kindness of
heart and no particular desire to conceal their attainments, would gladly have
taken Captain Machlin by the hand to point out to him the infinite possibilities
open in a VVest Point career. Men who had planned to listen to instructors
through mere courtesy-for a few hours each day, and then to give them-
selves up to the pleasures which the words "VV est Point career" conjure up.
Ah! were it not for the cruel customs that prevail here, Flirtation, with all its
former Masters, might have at last witnessed the crowning touch of perfection
-the utmost nicety of finesse-in that gentle art.
By 10.22 A. M. the first permanent class organization had birthg by 11.45
it had received striking accessions, had Bled articles of incorporation and had
taken permanent quarters in the Plebe Clubhouse. During the rest of Beast
Barracks the little hammers were never idle. Tn this avocation alone there
was no inclination to deadbeat. Topics given precedence were in order of their
relative rank, the assininity of Yearling Corps, the glaring incompetency and
mismanagement of the Tactical Department, etc. late were cadets less than ten
minutes before we became Plebesg we were Plebes less than a day before we
became in succession beasts of burden, housewives and recruits-as the occa-
sion and the omnipresent Yearling Corps demanded. Tn the drills which fol-
lowed the sun was hotter, the guns heavier, the drills longer and the rests rarer
than in any vocation in any other country on the planet. Verily, Nthou shalt
earn thy bread by the sweat of thy brow."
After ages, it seemed, we were precipitated into camp, the salubrious climate
of which hastens the evolution of the Plebe. There, we attended to that duty
ever before us-our chins-and, as good soldiers should, cleaned our guns. The
monotony of this existence was relieved by double-timing in the mud. Surely,
if in kinds of work "variety is the spice of life," the country for miles about
would be redolent as a Ceylon Zephyr. .
As the most amusing literature of the Middle Ages is from the Vestiaries,
so the most amusing records of Camp Shipp are of the menagerie. At the time
however, we could not appreciate thisg occupying, as we did, the viewpoint
of the proverbial frog. Qur bearing was reserved, quiet and extremely digni-
hed. We felt it to be the duty of men occupying our responsible positions to
bear themselves in a manner corresponding in dignity. So that, though many
of us were young, our conduct was marked by an absence of levity that would
have earned for us in ancient times the title Augusti. Wlieii the Iuliets came
in we graciously recognized them and incidentally, whenever possible to do so
without the intervention of our masters, instructed them much as we had our-
selves been instructed.
Many were glad to return to barracks, or was it rather to leave camp?
Those who had looked forward to an easy time were sorely disappointed in the
nature of the truceless war waged against that awful monstrosity-C. Smith. XV e
could not use the word monster. It has passed the age limit, having served
in this connection every previous class. VVe rather Hatter ourselves at the happy
substitution. He is dangerous because enveloped in an impenetrable labyrinth-
ine maze and assumes forms invisible to the untrained eye, ranging from the
merest speck to infinity. The only way to overcome him is to attack both
extremes or flanks at once by an infinity of spec. Neglect of this vital prin-
ciple has cost us some of the most daring of our classmates.
Since returning to barracks, we have entered every held of activity. That
we believe in self-reliance and originality is shown by our crest g for to prove us
guilty of copying even the prescribed forms in our choice, would be beyond the
power of the Solon of Heralds. It was at the beginning of the foot-ball season
that '07 iirst exhibited its athletic abilities. Christie, Nagle, VVatkins, jenkins, Hill,
Prince and Davis demonstrated the fact that 1907 was to hold its own in that
branch of West Point life. Throughout the entire season they worked hard-
so hard that the coveted "A" was won by Hill, Prince and Davis.
Tn conclusion, we are unanimous in feeling that nowhere else would we
have spent a year richer in experience, nor more productive of lasting good.
How we counted the days separating us from that coveted service stripe en-
titling us to "bring up" the next Plebe class in the "straight and narrow way."
How impatiently some of us await the opportunity to demonstrate this ability.
Every man in the class, as is usual in Plebe classes, hopes to be worthy
of his training and the traditions of West Point. And those more fortunate
who have at last attained that chiefest of earthly glories, that proud place from
which one would not step voluntarilyj to mount the golden throne of Mahmud
-a corporalship-will not do less. A Yearling Corp, by Gum! O yum! How
sweetly it doth lie upon oneys tongue! Wliat needless tears poor Alexander
shed at lack of future worlds to conquer. Had he but cast his lot with us,
thrown his strength against our difficulties as he did against Asia, had he, in-
stead of deluging his eyes with tears, kept them "straight to the frontl' like a
couple of hard-boiled eggs, he might have been now, ye gods! he might have
become with his tremendous abilities and previous military experience, greater
than the son of Jupiter-a Yearling Corp.

THLETTCS at Wfest Point had a very stormy beginning. Hampered
by many embarrassing restrictions, haunted by a feeling that the sacred
traditions of the Academy were being trodden upon on the foot-ball
and base-ball fields, harassed by doubts as to the expediency of it all,
and as to where this evolution might lead us, we were blindly groping
in the dark, upheld only by the conviction that our purpose was a worthy one.
Up to 1890, football was comparatively unknown. There was a vague and
indefinite idea that such a game existed, but few men in the Corps had ever
participated in the sport. The Cadets were exceedingly anxious to play it, but
K' .xx Q L'
the conditions were suchqthat the beginning was a hard struggle. At that time
Cadet life was stern, harsh and almost prison-like. VV e were not supposed to
possess the instincts and desires common to youths of our age, the only amuse-
ments accorded us were the dubious ones obtainable in the monotonous round
of drill and study 5 our wildest gaieties were limited to a strict observance of
the Blue Book. It was very difficult to get the authorities to take a favorable view
of the question, and only by persistent effort was permission to play finally ob-
tained. This year Annapolis sent a challenge which was immediately accepted,
but the season had advanced so far that training was entirely out of the question.
Nevertheless the game was played on November 29, 1890, resulting in a victory
for the Navy. Score, 24-o. The Army, however, was not disgraced. It real-
ized before the game that its lack of experience, practice and knowledge of the
game had placed it to a great disadvantage. Restricted by the rigid discipline
of the Academy and prohibited from playing with any outside team, it was com-
pelled to develop its ,strength wholly within itself. The Army team may be sum-
med up quickly by saying that it displayed great pluck, but little science. The
team naturally felt the defeat very keenly, but with that old spirit of tenacity
ever since so manifest, it determined to master the science of the game and
redeem itself the following year. , That first defeat was a blessing. It was the
best thing that could have happened for the advancement of foot-ball at the
So much enthusiasm was now aroused that base-ball was entirely neglected
in order to bring foot-ball to a higher state of development. The next year it
began handicapped by a complete absence of coaches and an entire lack of time
for practice. Nevertheless there was a very marked improvement in the playing
of the team, due principally to the untiring efforts and coaching of Michie, 192,
who we might say is the father of foot-ball at the Academy. That year five
games were played, W7 est Point winning three, tying one and losing 0116. The
Navy game was played November 28, and much to the surprise and chagrin of the
Navy, who were so confident of winning that they were betting 2 to 1 on the game,
they were beaten by that very ratio of 2 to 1, the actual score being 32 to 16.
ln 1892 there was a steady advance in athletics. Baseball became well es-
tablished and games were played every Saturday with College teams. The foot-
ball game was played on November 26, and resulted in a victory for the Navy.
The main cause of the delay in the progress of athletics at VV est Point, was
the absence of any organization to support and control the teams. Financial
support was given by voluntary contribution, and control was exercised entirely
by the Cadets. The fall of 1892 gave birth to the organization of the Army
Ofhcers, Athletic Association and the U. S. M. A. Athletic Association. The
officers' organization was for the purpose of encouraging athletics among the
Cadets and throughout the Army in general g the Cadet organization for the
purpose of controlling Academy athletics. Through the financial aid and encour-
agement given by the A. 0. A. A., our athletics have been crowned with a suc-
cess almost marvelous.
In 1893, field and track athletics were introduced. The first field day was
held on April 18, the teams being composed of live men from each class. This
number has since been changed, two men representing each class in every event.
The lirst banner offered by the A. 0. A. A. was won by the Class of '96. There
was a decided -advance in base-ball this year, Although victory did not crown
their efforts, still it' could be plainly seen that the teams were becoming stronger
each year, due principally to the fact that the schedules contained some of the
strongest college teams, from whom we were able' to gather many valuable points.
In foot-ball, the team made good records against Yale, Princeton and Lehigh, a
great run for a touchdown by Duncan against Princeton being the feature of this
year's work. On account of the good showing against these teams, W'est Point
was expected to win the linal game. The Navy had won two of the three games
played so far and there were rumors that the series was to end by order of the
Wfar and Navy Departments. Our team was eager to make a winning finish and
even up honors. Mr. Laurie Bliss and Mr. Harmon Graves coached us that
year, the first regular coaches we ever had. The first half ended without a score,
and it looked like a drawn battle. In the second half both teams scored, but
Carson failed to kick goal, and this great game ended with the score 6-4. A
Navy victory. Immediately after, a report was sent out from Wlashington that
this would be the last game between the academies, "As the curricula of both in-
stitutions required the closest and most rigid application, the risk of having the
players kept from their studies even a day being too great." Secretaries I-Ier-
bert and Lamont decided to stop the games between the two Academies. Al-
though it was not the intention to suppress foot-ball as a game, this decision
kept the two Academies apart for six years, until relations were again resumed in
This history is too brief to give the classes and the names of the men who by
hard work and perseverance made foot-ball and all other athletics possible. They
laid a foundation upon which a structure wasbuilt,qualifyingus tobeclassed among
the very best in the country. VV e cannot dwell upon the years between the first
and second series with Annapolis, our principal purpose being to deal with the
condition which led to the present state of the various forms of athletics now en-
gaged in at the Academy. These years contain accounts which were indeed a
credit to IW est Point. The names of King, Kromer, Romeyn, Stacy, Connor and
Nolan will long be remembered not only by those who have gone before us, but
also by the Corps to-day. The base-ball teams during this time were only second
class. In fact we have never been able to turn out a strictly first class team. In
track athletics the banner was won by '96 three successive years, and then twice in
succession by ,Q7.
In 1899, the efforts of Dr. 'Wliite and the graduate directors of athletics for
the University of Pennsylvania caused the Secretary of Wfar, and the Secretary
of the Navy to consider the benefits of foot-ball as a recreation for the Cadets
with the result that the relations between the two Academies were to be resumed
at Franklin Field, Philadelphia, on November 28. 18.99. Gate money was abol-
ished, the entire expense of the game being borne by the University of Pennsylva-
nia. The 18,000 tickets were equally divided among the two Academies and the
U. of P., and were to be issued as complimentary onlyl The
presence of the President, the Cabinet and a long line of Generals,
Admirals and other distinguished Army and Navy officers, has given a distinctive
atmosphere to these games. That year we had a green team, defeat had come
more often than victory. A number of our best men were hurt, and opposed to
us was a strong ever-confident Navy team-in fact the indications for victory
were greatly against us and we could only hope for a small score. But that day
the team fully upheld the credit of the Corps and played with such spirit and good
judgment, that they 'went home victorious with that never-to-be forgotten score,
I7 to 5 .
In 1900 the base ball team did very creditable work. This was the nearest
approach to a hrst-class team we had yet developed, winning four games out of
six. The season in foot-ball was rather a disastrous one. The team at times
played foot-ball, but at other times its work was far below the average. At
Franklin Field on a slippery held, the Navy taking advantage of a series of mis-
plays, succeeded in defeating us by a score of II to 7. This year we were the
over-confident team, and it was largely if not entirely due to .this unfortunate
trait that we lost.
The season of 1901 was the most brilliant in the history of the Academy, and
it is to be doubted if the record made that year will ever be repeated. The sched-
ule contained games with Yale, Harvard, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania
and the Navy, a schedule which seemed altogether too aspiring but which was
carried out in a manner far beyond our most sanguine expectations. These
games resulted as follows: Harvard 6, VVest Point og Yale 5, VV'est Point 5 5
Princeton 6, VV est Point 6, University of Pennsylvania 0, lrVest Point 24, Navy 5,
VVest Point II. The more one contemplates this record, the more its brilliancy
grows upon him, it was indeed phenomenal. It took five of the best teams in
the country to make 22 points against us, and while they were doing it we piled up
46. Harvard, the champion of the year,is the only team that lowered our colors
and succeeded in doing this only by a long run in the last thirty seconds of play.
All the critics unanimously gave us third place this year. Casper WVhitney said,
"There is no question in my mind of 'West Point being entitled to rank after Har-
vard and Yale among the Eastern Colleges." During the winter a series of games
of base-ball was arranged between the teams representing the two Academies.
These were to be played each year, alternately at Annapolis and 'West Point. The
nrst game was played Saturday, May 18, 1901, at Annapolis, Maryland. The
hrst class had graduated in February, so we were compelled to play the Navy
with a team taken from three classes. However, after a very close and exciting
game, we won by the score of 4 to 3. The Indoor Meet was won by 1902.
WVest Point in 1902, put forth the best team in its history. There is little
doubt but that it should have had second place this year. The team was devel-
oped along the lines used by the large colleges. namely, training the team with
only the final game in view, taking all others throughout the season in its stride,
win or lose. The schedule, though not quite as aspiring this year, contained in
addition to minor engagements, games with Harvard, Yale, Syracuse and the
Navy. Harvard was the only team that succeeded in winning from'us, and then
only after we had scored upon them, making a straight touchdown from normal
formation. Yale was forced to leave the field with a tie score, 6 to 6. Syracuse
was beaten badly. and by the time we reached the Navy game. cur team was fully
developed. with the men in perfect physical condition. Cn November 28. tearing
great, gaping holes in the Navy line, smashing, crashing and plunging for three,
four and tive yards at a time, breaking down the Navy defense by a bull-like at-
tack, Boyers and his gallant band literally plowed their way to a great victory over
our old opponents from Maryland, the score being 22 to 8. It was a great day
for the Army, for our team swept the Navy Off its feet, demonstrating its superi-
ority in every department of the game. So the conditions of 18QO were reversed.
The Army by steady, consistent and determined work had built up from the
foundation laid by Michie and his fellow-cadets, a team which not only defeated
the Navy decisively, but attained an unthought of position-a place among the
"Big Four." We also had the pleasure of seeing Bunker, Daly and Boyers placed
on the All-American of this year-truly a great record.
The base-ball team this year played at times brilliantly, but was unfortunate
in having its off days come at the wrong time. The schedule was a long one, con-
taining eighteen games, of which we won IO, lost 6, two being cancelled. The
Navy defeated us on May 17, by a score of 5 to 3. Inability to hit was the prin-
cipal cause for defeat, and that is, in fact, the weak spot in all W7 est Point teams.
This year marks the real beginning of fencing at the Academy. It received an
impulse from the fact that a team was entered in the Intercollegiate tournament.
For the first time were we to test our strength against the principal colleges of
the East, among them the Navy. After defeating Cornell, Harvard, Columbia,
Yale and Pennsylvania during the season, we finished the year's work by winning
the Intercollegiate championship with a decisive score. The Indoor Meet was won
by the class of '03 and the Field Meet by the Class of 'o5. This brings us to the
season of 1904, which will be discussed separately.
There is no doubt that this gradual but steady development in athletics has
been a benent not only to us now at the Academy, but also to the graduates in
the Army, and to sport in general, for nowhere in the country is a purer system of
athletics followed. By means of it, we have been able to bear the burdens of the
curriculum with lighter hearts, while the Hesprit cle corpsl' has increased tenfold
by the opportunities now presented to measure ourselves with the students of
other institutions. VVhen a cadet of to-day graduates into that great and honor-
able Corps beyond, he does not carry with him a feeling of bitterness toward the
Academy as in the pre-athletic period. In his mind, he bears memories of recrea-
tions and athletic triumphs which softened the asperities of his student life. I-Ie
looks with eagerness for news about the various athletic teams at the old place,
taking a just pride in its victories and a sincere regret in its defeats. This interest.
although primarily directed towards athletics, does not stop there. but embraces
all those things which are of importance to our welfare.

T' ' HE season of 1903, While not a brilliant one, ended in a blaze of glory.
The general plan of the year was to gradually develop the team to the
N Chicago game, and then to keep up that standard until the Navy game.
. College teams begin the season with a squad composed of men who
have been away on their summer vacation 3 hence they need a month's
hard Work to get into condition. In accomplishing this, their offensive and defen-
sive play progress in the same degree, so that they are far advanced when they meet
us. When we meet Harvard and Yale our offensive is not to be compared with our.
defensive. We are in good physical condition. This enables us to put up a powerful
defensive game, although playing against teams outvveighing us fifteen pounds per
man. As this condition was not acquired by playing football, our offensive work
has not had a chance to be developed 5 our plays have not been perfectly formed 1
the men are not Working with that speed and precision which is acquired only by
constant practice. The truth of this Was shown in the game with Chicago.
Here our defense was up to its usual standard, and our offense was even better.
In consideration of all this we take all teams, both great and small as they come,
playing the best we can but keeping constantly in mind that most important of
all events--the annual defeat of the Navy,-this having become a regular feature
of our Football calendar. A
The line-up against Colgate marked the opening of the season, but the be-
ginning was not very favorable. From a spectators stand-point the day was all
that could be desired-bright and clear, but not quite sharp enough to induce
snappy playing. Colgate proved to be a formidable foe, and although not scoring,
they prevented us from crossing their goal. Our failure 'to score when within
easy striking distance was disappointing. However, if you take into considera-
tion that opening games are but try-outs, and that the physical condition and
training of the men are not such as to permit hard, fast playing, we had every
reason to feel satisned.
The next game with Tufts was in marked contrast to that against Colgate.
Even if much remained to be accomplished, the improvement in both team work
and individual play was a source of gratihcation to all. Tufts, the Wednesday
before, had held down Yale to I7 points. This day she was unable to stop the
fierce rushes of the Army backs, who time and again broke through for long
gains.. Only once did Tufts hold us for downs and that was due to a penalty of
ro yards for off-side play. In this game, Farnsworth was seen for the first time
at right half-back, and did very well in this new position.. Score: Army 17,
Tufts o. ' p
The following Saturday we played Dickinson on a wet and slippery Held.
Our opponents played a fine game and stubbornly contested every inch of ground,
but in the end our superior strength predominated. There were no spectacular
plays or sensational runs. The touchdowns made by the Army were earned by
hard straight football. Score: Army 12, Dickinson o.
Harvard made her appearance here on the 17th of October, and in a heavy
rain which continued throughout the game defeated us by a score of 5 to o. Their
single touchdown was made fifteen minutes after the game started, by a mass play
on our right guard and tackle,
the runner getting through -
for a clear held of 22 yards.
Once again they placed the 2
ball on our 5-yard line, but . A
after repeated assaults were M - f
compelled to give way to our
powerful defense, losing the
ball on downs. Harvard's
known tendency for fumbling
in previous contests, taken in
connection with her defeat by
Amherst the Saturday before,
raised our hopes and gave us
well-grounded expectations of chieagds Line
a West Point victory.
Considering the conditions under which the game was played, there was little
fumbling on either side and only once did Harvard miss a punt. It was a kick-
ing game throughout, with the advantage in our opponents' favor. In rushing
the ball West Point made 70 yards to Harvard's So yards, but as this includes her
long run of 22 yards, the strength of the two teams was just about equal. Our
line was at times irnpregnable, and the score is evidence of the fact that Harvard,
though outweighing us from end to end, had all she could do. It was more good
fortune for Harvard than poor playing on our part that enabled her to score.
After three rainy Saturdays, we were nnally favored with a clear, dry day for
the Yale game. For three years Yale had not been able to defeat us, and although
Eli played a wonderful game all season, we fully expected to score. We started
Farnsworth, of West Point, Making Six Yards Through
the game with a rush that took the wearers of the Blue completely off their feet.
Before they realized that the game was fully begun, we had driven them from one
end of the held to the other, scored a goal from placement, not rushing the ball
once since the opening of the game. Yale had carried the ball to our io-yard'

this goal was very remarkable
this year. It was a beautiful
example of the value of a
kicking game. Yale took a
very decided brace after this
score and soon made a touch-
down. The first half ended
with the score 6 to 5 in Yale's
favor. In the second half
Yale's attack was irresistible,
their punting excellent. Dur-
ing this period they outplayed

in Chicago Game '
The scores : West Point 20, Vermont o, and West Point 58, Manhattan o. Both
games were extremely easy, our team completely outclassing the Visiting teams.
The game which was really the championship game of the year, was played
against Chicago on November 14th. Special interest was attached to this game,
because it was a contest between one of the great Western universities and a rep-
resentative Eastern team. Outweighed fifteen pounds per man on the line, West
Point triumphed, with the relative merits of the two teams about as indicated by
the score.: West Point. io, Chicago 6. There was not even an approximation to
roughness on either side. The courteous manner of the members of the Chicago
team was a beautiful illustration of how gentlemen should play the game. We
trust that Chicago will return to do battle next year, as such games are truly ben-
eflcial to the sport. The Army was first to score, carrying the ball 85 yards for a
touchdown without losing it once. A poor punt-out was made and a chance for
a goal was thus forfeited. In the second half, after having been held for downs
three times 'on our io-yard line, Chicago scored and kicked the goal, making 1he
score 6 to 5 in their favor.
Excitement was intense
throughout, and having held
the lead until near the end, it
was especially trying to us to -
' --fy ' Qi '
lose it by the narrow margin A ' '
of one point with only a few
minutes left to play.. How-
ever, the Army team never
said die for a moment, and get-
ting possession of the ball on
a fumble by Chicago on her
35-yard line, started for a
score making 5 yards at a clip.
A fumble on the io-yard line,
however, lost the ball and our hopes sank out of sight. A kick by Chicago,
a 'few dashes by West Point, and an exchange of kicks with interference on a fair
catch gave us our last chance. Doe arose to the occasion by kicking a beautiful
goal squarely between the posts.
The suspense while Chicago was objecting to the decision was something ter-
rible, and the pandemoniuru when Doe kicked the goal was correspondingly in-
tense. The scenes of the Yale and Princeton games here two years ago, and of
the Yale game last year were re-enacted with an enthusiasm which echoed back
from the hills, and gave an experience long to be remembered.
The Chicago press and supporters of that team lay claim to superiority, and
say that the goal from placement should not have been allowed. Stilwell signal-
ed a fair catch and was standing perfectly still. A Chicago man got so close that
Chicago-West Point Teams Lined up for First Scrimmage in Game
the ball hit his head just in front of Stilwell's hands and, of course, bounded off.
A foul committed by a player in no way depends upon the intent of that player.
After the interference, Stilwell remained in position with hand raised claiming a
foul. The ruling of the oiiicial was absolutely correct, and the foul was so evi-
dent that the merest novice could recognize it. They failed to realize that had
we not kicked this goal they would have won the game on an exactly similar
Another claim to superiority is that Chicago gained more distance than the
Army, but they have not considered the efforts they made in gaining the ground.
The failure to cross our goal line more than once was in no way due to fumbles
or penalties, but lack of offensive power at critical points, and stonewall defense
by the Army, which could not be overcome when the goal line was in danger,
while our failure to cross a second time just before placement was due to a fum-
ble, for we were going 5 yards at a try in a way which could not be denied. '
In running back kicks by Eckersall, the Chicago team was vastly superior to
ours, and in open field running Daly is the only superior to Eckersall ever seen.
Eckersall also out-punted our kickers by a few yards, but no advantage occurred
thereby, except in getting the ball in touch. West Point had to punt out fre-
quently and Chicago was thereby enabled to hold on to the ball an undue propor-
tion of the time. Eckersall was helpless in his attempts to drop-kick, and the
only one he got off was yards wide of the posts.

It is necessary to say a few words of the men of 1904 who played on the
team. They have played their last game on the West Point gridiron, and are now
ready to take their place among the rooters, with the hopes that their efforts dur-
ing the past four years have not been in vain. Farnsworth, our captain, by hard
conscientious work, showed himself not only to be a player, but he set an exam-
ple for the rest of the team, which was well to follow. He made the sacrifice of
his life when he left the Navy game because he felt that an injury to his leg made
him less useful than a substitute in good condition. By that act he will always
be remembered as a captain who sacrificed himself for the good of the team.
Thompson and Riley, N. W., were a complete success at guard. Both were of
the variety of men who never give up their task, no matter how hard the oppo-
nent was using them. Their strong defense helped us out of many a tight hole.
Hackett, last yearts half-back, was moved over to quarter. Being an old player,
and having the able teaching of Daly, he was soon able to master the position
Before the end of the season he was handling the team perfectly, and especially
valuable in running back punts. jensvold and McAndrew were both hurt early
in the season, compelling us to do without their valuable services. Cooper play-
ed on the scrub all season, and finally succeeded in working his way to the first
team by one of the pluckiest Eghts imaginable. He took Farnsworth's position
in the Navy game, and ended his football career in a most brilliant manner. Stil-
well began the season at quarter, but having never played before this-season it was
considered necessary to fill his place with one who was more experienced in the
game. His work was very good, and a lack of experience only prevented him
from holding the position. Copp was unfortunate as usual, an injury keeping
him from playing most of the season.
The untiring efforts of Captains King and Smither, Lieutenants Kronier, Bet-
tison and Connor, were greatly appreciated by everyone. VVe owe them our
thanks for their work in making our final football season memorable, both for the
results obtained and the enjoyment we derived. Being experienced players them-
selves, they were in a position to coach us on every point. Every man of the
squad had the utmost confidence in them.
In conclusion we wish the greatest success possible to the team of 1904, and
our fondest wish is that they beat the Navy-now and forever.

NLY on the football Held, in progressive joint manoeuvres can the Army
and the Navy be pitted against each other. But according to Bismarck,
" You cannot get up a iight between an elephant and a whale." This
'hmgfqi may be true in war, but never on the gridiron. Both teams go in to
win, and no matter how one-sided the score may seem at the end, the
victory is never easily won.
Because the low age limit made it impossible for the Navy to obtain old and
experienced players, the middies contested that we even up this so-called handi-
cap by agreeing to a set of eligibility rules. We upheld that- none were needed.
The object of eligibility rules is not to equalize the chances of winning. Their
one purpose is to prevent and abolish professionalism, and surely this is unknown
and impossible at both Academies. Wie claim that any advantage which we
derive from the higher age limit is offset by the greater 'number of middies from
which the Navy can choose. The difficulties were, however, nnally amicably
Our season had been a fairly successful one, for we lost but one player.
Torney was hurt in the Chicago game, making it necessary to develop a new full-
back in two weeks. The team, however, was a strong combination, in perfect
physical condition and well drilled in all the known football tactics.
At 2.oo o'clock sharp, Captain "1key " and his gallant band trotted out on the
iield-football teams always trot. The entire south stand arose as one man, and
with bared heads turned out a long corps yell for the team, finishing with a pro-
longed and vigorous " route step." The Navy, with its goo middies, yelled as if
they belonged to the " Choir Invisible." This, however, did not disconcert the
team, for as one wise plebe said : " Our prime object in going to the Quaker City
was to play football." .
Our old foe played that same plucky game she has played in times past, in
which the Army goes down the field every three minutes for a touchdown. For
the sailors " McCarthy " generally carried the ball, but also generally failed to
make the distance. One of the most pathetic incidents of the game occurred
when the score was 30-5 in our favor. The north stand arose an masse, singing
" Army, what makes you feel so badly ? " Of course we were taking an exceed
ingly peculiar way to show our sorrow, but every one recovered in time to join in
the old slogan : " We'll keep your little graves green."
The following account of the game is taken from Capt. Pierce's report :
It was a glorious ending to the present football season. While we rejoice. in
having won so fine a victory, still we have a feeling of the greatest respect for the
team that fought so gamely in
the face of certain defeat. The
final result, to an impartial V
judge, was never in doubt, V
i- '7 fa? :"- '
and but for a number of costly Q
fumbles at the start it is safe .l V
to say the midshipmen would
not have scored. They were
out-played from start to hnish,
and only three times duringthe
game did they make a first
down-once in the Hpst half
and twice in the second. Their "
- 1 - t
trick plays did not work and Qxfy Fifteen ym-ds
their end runs counted for
nothing. In a word, they were not in the same class with the cadets 1 nor was
their physical condition equal to that of the Army team. Vlfest Point made three
substitutions while Annapolis had practically a new team in the second half. A
Although in poor condition owing to an injured leg, Captain Farnsworth
started in the gamel As soon as it was apparent that his presence was injuring
the work of the eleven, he called Cooper to replace himself. This conduct was
very commendable, since rather than jeopardize the chances of his team to win,
he chose to be replaced by a player in better physical condition.
Praise is due to each member of the team for his share in the final outcome
of the game. Every one played hard and well. 'The line did exceedingly good
work, both on defense and offense. The fact that the Navy made only 32 yards
by line plays shows the quality of the defensive work. The offensive was appar-
ent to every onlooker in position to see the forwards charge, opening up great
holes in their opponentls line for our backs to pass through.
Probably the most spectacular play of the entire game was the 42-yd. run of
Prince from scrimmage for a touchdown. Hackett and Tipton made the play
possible by their interference for, and assistance to, the runner. Three times was
Prince apparently stopped and down, but each time he was helped to get clear and
going again. Davis at full-back played a surprisingly good game, considering
that this is his nrst year at the Academy. Weighing 192 pounds and being 'very
quick and active, he was almost irresistible in line-plunging. Hammond played
a noticeably fine game at end. Graves was as usual a powerful factor in the suc-
cess of the cadet eleven. He was in every play, and his peculiar power of diag-
ndsing the intentions of the opponents was apparent throughout this contest.
Tipton played perfectly except for one poor pass. He is exceedingly strong
active, and quick to follow the
ball. In my opinion he is one
of the best centers produced
this season. Riley and
Thompson were so superior
to their opponents that no
comparison is possible. When
Thompson went to tackle to
replace Doe, who was taken
out on account of a leg injured
in the Chicago game, his play-
ing seemed better even than at
guard, for time and again he
broke through and nailed' the
runner for a loss.
Cooper played better than I have ever seen him play before, and fully justi-
fied his selection as substitute for Farnsworth. Doe had just come out of the
hospital. However, he played fine game and was only taken out when the
game was safe, for fear further playing might injure him. Rockwell played a
good end, being especially valuable in getting down under kicks. The substitu-
tion of Mettler and Gillespie for Doe and Rockwell did not apparently weaken
Taken all in all the West Point eleven which faced the Navy team on
Franklin Field, November 28th, 1903, was a powerful, active combination of
individuals, who won on their merits. The play Was concentrated and fast 3 the
team Work excellent. The game was played by us almost entirely from normal
formation. It was found unnecessary to use the tandem, which had 'proved so
effective against the University of Chicago.

West Point kicked off to the Navy's 5-yard line and the runner was downed
on the 25-yd. mark. A gain of one yard in three tries forced a punt and Hackett
made the catch on the middle line. On the first down Prince punted across the
Navy's goal line and the middies kicked out to Prince at mid-fieldg he was
thrown on the 5o-yd. mark. Farnsworth again fumbled and it was the Navy's
ball on the 47-yd. line. Farnsworth was replaced by Cooper. The Navy could
not make a first down and punted to Hackett on- his go-yd line 5 he made 4 yards.
Prince, Davis and Cooper advanced the ball to the 5o-yd. mark where Prince
punted to the Navy's 25-yd. line, Tipton making the tackle. Annapolis tried a
fake kick on the second down and did not make a yard. The Army got the ball
on a fumble on the zo-yd. line and in five plays Davis wasfshoved over for
:tntouchdown at 2:45. Doe kicked goal. Army 6 3 Navy 5.
Davis kicked off to the Navy's 5-yd. line and himself made the tackle on the
25-yd. mark. A third down with 2 yards to go compelled Annapolis to punt.
Hackett ran the kick back 8 yards to the Army's 53-yd. line. The cadets failed
to make the required distance and Davis kicked to the Navy's 35-yd. line outside.
For the first time since the game started the Navy made a first down by going
through center for 6 yards. However, 5 yards to go on the next third down
forced a punt and Prince caught and was downed on the Army's 39-yd. line.
Prince hit the line for 3 yards and then punted from a position close up behind
the line. As the ball went over the head of a Navy back he touched it and Ham-
mond, tearing down the field secured it on the Navy's 8-yd. line. Davis in two
tries made 4 yards and a penalty for offside by the Navy gave the Army a first
down. Prince in the next play went over for a touchdown at 3 o'clock and Doe
kicked goal. Army 12 5 Navy 5. -
Davis kicked off, and the ball sailed directly between the posts and over the
cross-bar. Hackett muffed the kick-out and Hammond picked up the ball, but
was downed on the Army's 47-yd. line. Davis went through left tackle for 4
yards, and Prince from a normal formation punted to the Navyls 20-yd. mark,
Hammond downing the runner for no gain. The middies punted on the third
down to Hackett on his 50-yd. line, and he made to yards. Prince was again
given the ball and came through stumbling 3 he fell, but was lifted to his feet by
Hackett, and behind Tipton's excellent interference, and with continued assist-
ance, made a run of 40 yards to a touchdown,-certainly a most sensational run.
Doe kicked goal and made the score: Army 18 3 Navy 5.
Davis kicked off to the Navy's zo-yd. line and Hammond was there with the
ball. The Navy punted on the third down and Prince caught the ball on
the bound at mid-field g he was downed on the Navy's 50-yd line. Prince,
Cooper and Davis carried the ball to the 35-yd. mark and time was called at 3:21.
SECOND HALF f
The second half started with no changes in the Army team. The Navy made
several substitutions during the progress of the half, due apparently to lack of
At 3:45 Annapolis kicked off to the Army's 15-yd. line where the tackle was
made. Prince's punt on the Hrst down was blocked and it was the Navy's ball on
the Arn1y's 15-yd. line. The Navy tried a field goal from placement on the third
down, but the ball was blocked and Thompson fell on it for the cadets on the 2o-
yd. line. Prince punted to the Ar1ny's 45-yd. line and Hammond was offside,
the ball hitting him in the back. Annapolis was allowed a free kick from the
25-yd. line. The ball was blocked, however, but was recovered by the Navy on
the 45--yd. mark. Annapolis punted only I5 yards and Rockwell secured the ball.
Prince returned the punt to mid-field and Hammond downed the runner. The
Navy here made a second first down on the Army's 48-yd. line, but a third down
with 5 yards to go compelled them to punt. Hackett rnuffed on his 2o-yd. line,
but fell on the ball. Prince made 3 yards and Davis was jammed through center
to the 42-yd. line. Cooper placed the leather on the 5o-yd. mark, and Davis and
Prince took it to the Navy's 45-yd. line. Davis and Cooper in two tries added 7
yards more, and Prince skirted left end for I8 yards. With the ball on the 2o-yd.

fumble gave 'West Point the ball on the 20-yd. line and in six plays Davis made
the fourth touchdownlfor the Army. Doe kicked goal. Army 29 3 Navy 5.
Doe was replaced by Mettler.
Annapolis caught the kick-off on the 5-yd. line and ran it back 35 yards. The
Navy tried a fake kick on the second down, but made no gain, and were com-
pelled to punt. Hackett made the catch and was thrown on the Army's 52-yd.
line. Prince's punt was blocked, but Davis recovered the ball and Prince again
punted, the runner being downed on the 22-yd. line. Gillespie was substituted
for Rockwell. The middies made another first down in two tries and placed the
ball on their 2-S-yd. line. They lost 5 yards on the next play and tried a fake kick
which netted only 2 yards. They punted to Hackett at mid-field and he was
downed for no gain. Prince punted on the second down to the Navy's 25-yd.
line and Hammond was on hand to make the tackle. A punt by the middies on
the third down landedathe ball on their 45-yd. mark, from which point the cadets
rushed it down the field in plunges which netted 5 and 6 yards at a time. Prince
made the touchdown at 4:33 and Hackett kicked goal. Army 35 3 Navy 5.
Davis's kick-offwent to a Navy man on the ro-yd. line and he made 23 yards.
A quarterback run lost 2 yards and Annapolis punted to Hackett on his 45-yd.
markg he was thrown on the middle line. Prince punted to the Navy's 2 5-yd.
line and the kick was run back I5 yards. The Navy punted on the third down
to Hackett on his 30-yd. line and he ran forward 20 yards. Prince's punt was
blocked, but the cadets recovered the ball on the 40-yd. line. Hackett signalled
another punt and Prince lifted the oval to the Navy's 35-yd. line, the runner
being downed after going ro yards. A loss of 3, yards compelled the middies to
punt and Hackett was nailed on the Army's 43-yd. line. With 2 yards to go on
the third dovvn Prince punted to the Navy's 20-yd. line. In a fake kick Annap-
olis lost 5 yards and punted to Hackett on the Navyls 45-yd. line. He yelled
" fair catch " and was tackled as the ball struck his arms. For this interference
West Point Was given a free kick from the 25-yd. line and Davis kicked a neat
goal. Army 40, Navy 5.
Davis kicked off to the Navy's 15-yd. line and time was called at 4:54.
,n Thus ended the Navy's Waterloo. The score might have been kept down by
the use ofa little judgment. At the beginning of the game the Navy tried our
line but found it absolutely impassable. Instead of opening out their plays and
using end runs, which might have been successful with their light, fast team.
they continued to batter the wall. As a result they made but three lirst downs.
Again, after each kick-off, they chose to receive the ball in their own territory.
This forced them to kick immediately, giving us the ball Within scoring distance.
The Navy went down splendidly to defeat, and even when the end drew near there
was that same brave, plucky iight We have seen so often and admired so much.
We earnestly hope to meet them again, and that our relations shall continue in
one long line of continual friendship. All you fellers, here's to the Navy. Ray I

Oh, Navy! Won't you listen?

THE SEASON OF 1903
HE beginning of the season of IQO3 was brilliant, but in the middle of
- the season there suddenly came a slump which we could never quite
overcome. We attribute this to the factlthat about the first of May,
' ' the weather becomes exceedingly warm, drills begin in earnest and we
find that each day is completely taken up with hard work. Hereto-
fore we have never had a training table for the base-ball team, hence there was
nothing to keep a player's waist plate from becoming attached to his backbone.
So we found ourselves gradually losing form until at the end of the season, we
were playing as if our feet were tied to the ground Even though the season
ended so disastrously, it was not without its good points, for we defeated. Harvard
by the score of 6 to 4-the first time we have ever beaten any of the "Big Fourn in
base-ball At the beginning of the season we found ourselves without the services
of Abbott, Herr and Hobson and it was therefore absolutely necessary to de-
velop an entirely new infield. We had secured an excellent coach in Stein-
weinder, of Princeton. He was with us until the middle of May, when he left to
W' e began the season by defeating Union, W'illiams and Dickinson, and then
treating Harvard to a little surprise party, so sudden that they are still wondering
up in Cambridge how it happened. This game probably caused more joy in the
Corps than any yet played here. There was indeed cause for it, for Harvard had
just shut out Georgetown and had beaten the middies in two games. Graham did
the pitching, allowing Harvard only eight scattered hits, which accounts for their
defeat. Coburn started to pitch for Harvard, but after we had scored six runs,
retired in favor of Clarkson. The fireworks went off in the third inning with
time and percussion fuses. The first two men took time and walked to first.
Vlfhipple, as usual, bunted and filled the bases. Then with two-strikes and three
balls called, Gardiner, I. B., shut his eyes and with a mighty swing sent the ball to
Officers' row for a home run. Stopping to tell the Harvard second baseman
about the accident, he almost missed connections at home. The game ended 6 to
4 in our favor and this also ended our winning streak.
Fordham, Lafayette and Amherst beat us in succession and then to aggravate
matters Columbia and 7th Regiment did the same. VX-fishing to begin well in our
first game with Columbia, we were anxious to win. Carter allowed but eight
hits, striking out eleven men, but VV' est Point made seven errors, which accounts
,for the defeat.
i The 7th Regiment in a very close and exciting game defeated us by the score
of 2 to o, our first shut out. This game was lost through our weakness at the bat,
for there was not the slightest fault in our pitcher's work. Thus the season might
be compared to a bonfire, bright and powerful at the beginning but ending in a
heap of ashes-all its inert strength gone, its darkness seeming all the darker on
account of the brilliancy of its beginning.
And now a few words about the individual members of the team. VV e had
a splendid corps of pitchers in Graham, Carter and Phillips. Graham was ex-
cellent, having a large assortment of curves and drops and plenty of speed, but
he lacked the proper coaching. Carter and Phillips also possessed speed and
curves, but lacked the experience necessary to make them first-class pitchers.
Carter will be our mainstay in the box this season and we ought to see a decided
improvement in his work. Graves, on account of his great experience played a
good game behind the bat. Hackett held down Hrst with both feet, which makes
it needless to say that it was completely covered. Jack Gardiner at second picked
up everything, even the grass. He has never yet decided how far that home run
went. Herring covered short in a very creditable manner, his throwing to first
being fine. Cooper at third was handicapped by a fever which finally compelled
him to stop playing altogether: His place was credibly filled by Crain, who up to
this time had been an unknown quantity. The outfield was very fast and must be
given credit for some very clever work. WVhipple, Wfinston and Rockwell were
absolutely sure on fly balls, andlit was always a relief to see the ball go their way.
Meals, although not playing in any of' the games, immortalized himself by hard,
conscientious and cheerful work in practice, where he was especially valuable in
the catching department. 5
The outlook for the season of IQO4 is bright. Every man on the '03 team is
still in the corps with the exception of Graham, whose position as pitcher will be
hard to fill. The pleb'e class does not contain much material, which compels ns to
depend upon last year's squad for our team. The one problem to solve is that
of developing a first-class pitcher and Carter will probably fill that position very
nicely. Hackett, ,O4, has been elected captain, and Lieut. Kromer has been ap
pointed base-ball representative by the A. A. A. W' ith his spirit and enthusiasm
instilled in the men, we ought to turn out a fast team, for never has the outlook

N May I7, IQO,I, with a squad of 21 Cadets, in charge of Lieut. Kromer,
' and accompanied by several officers, VV'est Point proceeded to Annapo-
lis. Friday night was spent at Baltimore, and on Saturday morning the
iwim' team took the train to Annapolis. Everyone was well taken care of
during the whole stay at that place, and nowhere has a more cordial
and sportsmanlike spirit been shown than was manifested by the Navy during
the entire visit.
The game was intensely exciting throughout. Both pitchers did excellent
work and both were given gilt-edged support, but the Army was more fortunate
in making its hits at opportune times. In the ninth inning, with a score of 4
to I against them, the Navy made two runs and had a man on second base with
two out. Matters were in a precarious condition when the next man knocked a
grounder to Abbot. But he fielded the ball cleanly and sent it into jim Hobsonfs
outstretched hands, ending the greatest game in the history of the Academies.
After the game the team was given a reception by the ladies of the Navy and in
the evening everyone attended an excellent hop given by our hosts, the Middies.
It was Lieut. Kromer's untiring efforts and his great enthusiasm in our whole
year's work that made it possible to win this gamef The score:

The next year, IQO2, the Navy team came to NW est Point, and evened matters
up by beating us in a well played game. Although their first class had graduated
early, they were permitted to play such members of the class as were on the
team. The Middies arrived the day before the game, and practiced on our held
that afternoon. This practice was exceedingly good and showed that they were
well coached in all the fine points of the game. The West Point team was poorly
chosen, several of our best players being compelled to sit on the bench. This, to-
gether with our errors, directly explains our defeat. Raudenbush and Graham
again pitched excellent games, and had the latter been properly supported, there
would have been no doubt as to the result, This game evened up the series, and as
no game was played in IQO3 on account of the strained relations between the two
Academies, the series still remains a tie. There is every reason to believe that
the game will be played as usual this year. TW e have a strong team, with Lieut.
Kromer at the head, and we ought to break the tie in our favor. The score of
the second game follows:

was the intention to enter a team in the
for 1901, but the early graduation of the first class prevented it. How-
ever, a squad was organized in IQO2, working daily under the able su-
pervision of Lieut. Koehler until the date set for the tournament of
IQO2. The squad consisted of 1 Bull CCaptainj, and Nichols, '03,
Strong, Scott, Hoyt and Honeycutt, 104 Breckenridge and Kunzig, '05, Gray, Q.,

The season of 1903 was even more successful than the preceding one. The
squad consisted of Bull QCaptainj, and Grey, B. E., ,O3, Strong, Hoyt, Scott and.
Honeycutt, ,O4 g Breckenridge, Barber, Hanford and Kunzig, '05, For Lieut.
Koehler's enthusiastic support We cannot be too thankful. He worked hard for
us and backed the team with all his Well-known enthusiasm and was intimately as-

This year, We have all the last year's squad with the exception of the gradu-
ates and Breckenridge. In addition there are several promising candidates. Lieut.
Koehler is still with us and Mr. Malchien isragain coach. So, with good luck
for Hour" year we can all say not only may the best team Win, but also may the
Army be the best team. .

I-IE Annual Gutdoor Meet took place with great success on June 9th last.
Notwithstanding the fact that the continued 'dry weather had so hard-
ened the plain that training was 'almost impossible, two new records
were made: 10 seconds for the 100 yd. dash and 52'sec0nds for the 440
yd. dashg very creditable time indeed, considering the kind and amount
of training and the condition of the track. The class of 1905 won the meet, Daly
and Hammond taking four iirsts, a second and a third 5 1904 was a close second,
with 1906 and 1903 third and fourth respectively. Two new events were run
off, the half-mile and mile run, and the track was laid out in an oval form-two
great improvements over preceding years. It is earnestly to be hoped that these
improvements are only the forerunners of others-such as unlimited entries and a
system of points by which only three places count. In this way the Annual Field
Meet at VV est Point will be put on a level with others of its kind at the colleges.

- The courts were in excellent condition, making some good fast playing
possible. The tournament was held as usual, starting with twenty-six

FEW years ago golf was played by a very few cadets, not being consid-
ered strenuous enough for most of them. But gradually it has increased
fg,..6,4. in favor, until now it is necessary to dress in armor for protection from
c-3 -:ag ,
stray hits. And it matters not whether you go to Fort "Put," Flirta-
tion or out on the links, this method of defense is absolutely neces-
sary. During Camp VV. E. Shipp the interest in the game was given an added
impulse by a tournament, which was held by the classes of 1904 and 1906. The
A. A. fxj offered two very pretty prizes which were won by Holderness, R. W.,
'04, and Thompson, M. H., '06. The

served the name. Cavalry horses served in place of ponies and evenipad
saddles were not available until 1900. Tn 1900, however, about thirty
Westerii ponies were bought and with the Class 1903 the tirst real in-
terest was shown. This class represented the Academy in two games
with Squadron A, of N. Y. Although beaten, the showing made was very sat-
In the spring of 1903. some twelve new ponies were bought and our class was
the first to take a lively interest in the game. Twenty or thirty men played dur-
ing the summer and fall of 1903. Practice was regular and considering the
nature of the game, very satisfactory progress has been made. VV e had no out-
side games, but expect some in the spring. The material offered was very promis-
ing indeed and among such men as Robins, VVilson, A. H., VVimberly, Swift and
-Koch there should be no trouble in picking a team capable of making a showing
creditable to the Academy.
Too much credit cannot be given Col. Treat in the development of the game
at the Academy. As an excellent horseman and an enthusiastic polo player of
exceptional skill, he has done everything in his power to encourage the game.
Capt. Macdonald has also taken great interest in our work and has exerted him-
self to help us. All the progress that we have made is due to these two officers.
T Polo should be encouraged at the Academy, cultivating as it does, those
characteristics indispensable to an oficer. Qwing to the lack of time, we can
hardly hope to reach the standard set by some of our clubs, but we should and
will be able to compete with the college teams on at least even terms.
OLO at the Academy dates from 1895, though at that time it hardly de-

I-TOUGH not under organization, cross country running has been engaged
in for the last three years by many Cadets of the upper classes. The
object has been individual development in strength and staying pow-
ers. With this idea in view Cadets with all physical qualifications,
many with no intention of even training for running, have turned out.
The longest run, held during the fall of 1902, was over eleven and one half
miles. The squad consisting of from live to twenty members, was lead by Stil-
well, '04, The runs have been conducted over nearly all the roads and rough
paths on and adjacent to the Reservation, following Stony Lonesome, circling the
neighboring hills, reaching Long Pond, and passing Limits on the Cornwall road.
Two paper chases were held with very good success. During the past fall several
road races were held. The run via Eagle Valley Road from the Gymnasium to
the East end of Long Pond and back was made in seventy minutes, reducing the
record of IQO2 by six minutes.
Though started under opposition and discouragement, this sport has made
rapid progress. In all over fifty men have been out. Among the weaker men,
the benehts have been very marked, while several runners, who have shown up
best in held meets, owe their development almost entirely to this cross-country

' NE Hundred Days 'till june, Sir! No wonder, that long- ago the
Corps began the practice of celebrating this happy time by more
adequate means than a "long corps yelll' and mutual congratula-
fi 5 5:4 tions. The first Iooth Night Entertainment was held in.the.Dialec-
A5303 tic Hall and when we consider the limited facilities which it offers
we may surmise that the affair was rather unpretentious. 'For
lffbjig' years the presentation of an original play was the form of enter-
Efffs tainment. For several years prior to 1903 this was departed from
T -a play was still the xattraction, but it was not an original pro-
Last year when the "Caprices of Cupid" was put upon the Cullum stage
every one was delighted with the return to the old plan. This year we went one
step farther. Not only was the play the work of a first classman-Copp-but all
the music was written by Gruber and the performance was a credit to every one
connected with it. Both authors spent a great amount of thought and energy
to insure the success of the play. Q
The musical comedy, "The Elopersf' was presented to the usual talented and
critical audience on the evening of March 5th, The play had to be put off to this
late date on account of some of those delightful lectures which we all enjoy so
tremendously 'The numerous local hits kept every one laughing-scarcely
a humorous event of the preceding twelve months escaped attention. In barest
outline, the plot was as follows: Colonel Van Speckhard is delivering a lec-
ture ini astronomy at Trophy Point. Two sons of Mars, Romulus and Remus,
land there in an air-ship and while they are making an inspection of the Post
before continuing their journey, the Col. and his satellite, Vinkleman. enter the
air-ship to examine the machinery. As luck would have it, they start it off ac-
cidentally and away they go to Mars. Romulus and Remus, since they cannot
escape, fall in love with Ina and Nina Gayspark and with the help of Artesia,
who claims to be a fairy, they succeed in their amours. The girls, however, are
locked up by their mother, who does, not approve of "cadetting" and so Cupid is
foiled for a while. ,
The Col. and Vinkleman, upon arriving on Mars, are arrested by Michael
Schlatz and condemned to death by the King unless they can make him a gown
more ornate and gaudy than the one he now possesses. They get their heads to-
gether and produce a dress-coat, with the aid of Romula and Rema, daughters
of the King, with whom, of course they fell in love. The King dons this instru-
ment of torture and faints away in violent agony-the two prisoners escaping.
iitfhey return, disguised as booksellers, to the court, where the king is making
merry prior to his departure for the Earth in quest of his sons. Romula and
Rema, having put a sleeping powder in the wine, the lovers steal an air-sliip and
elope to the earth. The King accompanied by Mercury, his Prime Minister and
Michael Schlatz, his Chief of Police, pursues them. Upon arrival the King falls
in love with Mrs. Gayspark. Here the fun begins. Every one tries to elope
with some one else. As luck would have it again, they all choose the same ren-
dezvous and time. Naturally an exciting melee ensues. As the Post quarter-
master supplied but one air-ship, this simultaneous eloping was impossible, but
as usual, everything ends happily with everybody satisfied " 'cept poor old Mer-
cury." . ,
The parts were very well taken, some of them unusually so. Gruber, as
the Dutch Professor, was a conspicuous success. To see him scratch his head
with his left thumb and, with a perplexed look inquire of Remus, 'Have you any
fever,' reminded one strangely of sick-call. His part was well conceived and
admirably executed. Moller kept the crowd holding their sides throughout the
play. His clever facial expressions and his inimitable gestures were one of the best
features of the play. His scenes with O'Vinan in the first act and with Reina
in the second were simply ludicrous. Copp made a king, the vainest of the vain.
His part was difficult to handle, but as in everything he has ever attempted.
he covered himself with glory-and paint. Wilson, E. M., as "Mercury," was
beyond doubt as good a coon as ever trod the stage. Wlietlier the Prime Min-
ister of Mars is a f'coon" or not must remain a mystery for many years to come.
Then there was Michael Schlatz, with his vengeful club, his brogue and his walk!
Everyone knows what Dew's abilities are and on this occasion he passed his
elastic limit and received a permanent set with the audience. And then the girls!
Richardson, R. C., McDonald, Donahue and Seager! 'Twould be hard, indeed,
to find more bewitching, entrancingly lovely maidens than these four made!
Dainty, coquettisli. winsome lassies they made for their difhcult parts. Need-
less to say each one had a suitor waiting at the stage door after the show. Mc-
Kay made 'a sweet little fairy, rather airy in some cases, but never quite so light
that we would be compelled to turn off the calcium light. Endress and Donavin
struck off their character to a nicety, while Davis, R. I-I., and Nagle, handled
their small parts well. '
Campbell, as Romulus, made an ardent lover, and spooned as only Campbell
himself can. Reynolds, as Remus, did finely and made the hit of the evening by
his singing. In closing, the chorus must be mentioned. Drilled and watched by
Simpson, I-I. L., the musical director, they worked hard and performed their task
admirably. Space does not permit a more extended enumeration of all the side
features. All did well, even the audience, with their timely applause, and
therefore the whole show was an unqualihed success. The cast' was as follows:

- -f N our life there are certain mile-stones which loom up before us,
p 1 'and then, as we reach them, we feel further advanced in our four
,Q years' course. Slowly but surely we pass them by. VVe persistent-
. ly grind away and near our goal-The Army.
f-iiiffi Grders, previously published, named our First Class encamp-
wb ment, "Camp XV. E. Shippf' and set June 13th as the date it was
to be occupied. VV e made the usual preparations on the evening
of the 12th-bundles that outrivaled those of a crowd of emigrants
at Castle Garden-and waited for the morrow.
Vlfell, the morrow changed our plans. How it rained! This
deluge continued for live days. Un the morning of the 17th, about IO o'clock,
the sun was evidently contemplating breaking through the dark clouds, and the
Commandant seized the propitious moment. 'We were ordered to move to
camp immediately. Again the usual scenes were enacted. Visitors derived much
amusement from seeing the motley procession trail across the plain, each man
trying to carry all his camp equipage and wardrobe in a single trip. It is useless
to go into detail. The reader has witnessed and experienced this same thing
three or four times. '
Camp Shipp had now become a reality. After we were settled, heaven
opened her shower-baths and proceeded to flood the earth. We trusted in our
Camp and felt secure so long as it only rained. The two weeks of rest which
preceded the schedule of Summer drills were spent in loosening tent cords, wad-
ing through mud and Water to the mess-hall and Cullum, and grumbling about
the ungrateful weather. But it could not rain all the time. Wlien the drill season
began, wonderful to relate, the rain fell not, except during the afternoons and
days on which no drills were scheduled. Being always optimistic, we did not
consider the drills all work. Even double-timing around the muddy cavalry-
plain offered some fun-we have been told. Breaking bronchos in the corral,
breaking trail handspikes at artillery drill, breaking in the hospital and un-
willingly breaking out, breaking golf clubs on the links, breaking five dollar
bills "to give the kid a quarter," breaking our backs pulling on a pontoon oar,
breaking ladies? hearts and persistently and continuously breaking regulations
made our camp a Record Breaker. .
Besides the time spent in Camp Shipp we have fond recollections of two other
camps during the Summer. The Hrst was the 7th Regiment Camp at
Peekskill. One hundred and twenty-five strong, booted and spurred, made an
early morning march down the Hudson and attacked the New Yorkers, I2oo
in number, who were strongly intrenched. in their camp. They valiantly defend-
ed their position, but the able assistance of our Gatling Guns so efficiently
served and a timely dash of a platoon of cavalry through a submerged road, put
the enemy to llight and their camp was ours. They received us with open arms-
sort of an unconditional surrender. This was so utterly without conditions that
in the midst of our spoils we were unceremoniously mounted and hustled back to
'W est Point. Our commanding officer realized that we had not yet studied Inter-
national Law and therefore feared that we might begin to pillage and plunder.
This vivid experience was at the beginning of the Summer. Such a beginning
surely presaged the coming weeks to be likely ones, abounding with more ex-
citement and pleasure.
VV'e resumed our usual routine of camp life, along with the numerous
morning drills, we chased and hunted the elusive golf-ball on the hottest after-
noong we thronged to the tennis courts and gave the sun's rays better opportu-
nity to place those deceiving blossoms upon our noses 5 not getting sufficient
exercise at pontoon-drill, we would 'row over to Cold Springs at night g and after
taps we spent many hours struggling in vain with the Wfest Point mosquitoes in
the summer garden. In the middle of the night, not a sound disturbing the re-
pose of Nature save the splash of a side-Wheeler ascending the river, the sentinel
walking his lonely beat, would be startled by some restless slumberer scream-
ing out, "Hi yi! I-li yi !" Far down the company street another cadet, awaking
from a terrible dream, shrieks, "More rain! More rain!" Again silence ensues
and the sentinel's heart is recovering its normal beat. Suddenly, there is an
awful sound issuing from "A" company. A first-class man has been suffering
from a horrible nightmare. I-le tries to rid himself of the frightful hallu-
cinations and cries out in his agony, "Double Time!" The effect is wonderful.
That cry penetrates the ear of every inmate of the camp. The guard turns out
in haste, the sentinels are heard challenging unseen objects and persons, the
camp rises "en massef' and seeks the unfortunate 'mortal who gave vent to this
most inopportune "shriek" Vengence is meted to him when found and the camp
again becomes still and quiet.
I Witli blowing of trumpets, clanking of sabers, half suppressed sighs from
the ladies and a few cadets, we again left the post. Moving up the Eagle Valley
road we covered about twelve miles and bivouaced near Stockbridge. This
bivouacing was a peculiar experience and consisted mostly in grooming, feeding,
watering, grooming and more grooming of horses, along with a few incidentals
that we discovered. In the evening some of the men attended a "hunting" dance
at a near-by summer house 5 uniform for cadets, riding trousers, leggings, spurs,
gray shirts, black ties and campaign hats, that for ladies not prescribed. The
remainder of us attended the horses on the picket line and "forage" for our-
selves. This "forage" in most cases was only obtainable after long and weari-
some tramping over the country, but nothing daunted, we obtained it.
At day break next morning, we rode down into Pleasant Valley Qwhere
strangely enough, the sights were familiar to some of usj and then striking the
Erie R. R., we pushed on at a rapid gait. About noon we arrived in the Park
and were allowed to graze in the track enclosure and slake our thirst at the water-
ing trough. By some mistake we were not compelled to groom our horses at
this halt. After refreshing ourselves in the bright sunlight Cioo degrees F. in
the shadej We mounted our steeds and turned our faces to the East, where lay
our little bivouac at Stockbridge. Stopping only about an hour to allow the
men to bathe in the lake, we made good time and soon came out on the Erie
R. R. Then there arose a terrific rain storm. The rain coats which we carried
on our saddles were useless. Those of us who didn't bathe in the lake took a
shower bath at this time. The raincoats actually prevented the Water from roll-
ing off our clothes by absorbing it. By the time we arrived at Stockbridge the
fickle sun was sinking behind the hills and, save the immediate camp and
beaten roads, there were no traces of the heavy rain. The night was spent in
the same mud, mirth and good cheer of the preceding evening and incidentally
also in the same clothes.
Witli appropriate ceremonies we named our bivouac "Camp Methusef' This
was the unanimous choice of the class. So many amusing incidents marked these
few days that it is needless to tell them. Willie Harris, during his tour on
picket guard, with his "Ough! Oughl VVhoa, Whoa, there l" disturbed our sleep.
The horses picketed to the ambulance, pulled said ambulance down the hill, and the
sole occupant awoke to ind himself going to-he didn't know where. Witliin
the wagon we heard such sounds that beggar description. XIVTC were entertained
with a variety of words in many foreign tongues. The hospital steward was the
man in the ambulance. Humpty Hunter under his nom de plume of "Colonel,"
escorted his staff, consisting of "Majors" Dew and Gruber, "Capt" Parker and
"Orderly" Moller down to the "kitchen" and there, about 2 A. M., they enjoyed
a regimental mess. This exploit has passed into song. "Hip', Robert disturbing
midnight's holy hour by cutting up fence rails, received a pressing invitation from
"'Delinquency" to bring the wood in his tent and there cut it. "Hip" politely def
clined, also subsided. Many other incidents occurred similar to these, the recol-
lection of which will always drive dull cares away and make us cheerful. The
trip was enjoyable to all except the poor horses. They were a sorry lot when We
were through with them. -
Returning to Camp Shipp, july and August were intensely hot, but still we
spooned, drilled, danced and attended concerts. As August was nearing its close
we naturally wanted to complete our encampment in a most fitting manner. We
decided to have a Grand Camp Illumination. "A" company had an "A" at the
entrance to its street, towering about thirty feet in the air, bedecked with lan-
terns, garlands and tapestries. Wlieii the lanterns were lighted it made a daz-
zling spectacle. Their colored minstrels show and street fakir afforded amuse-
., fs . '

ment to the crowd and deserve great credit. At the south end of the street, a
formidable bastion smiled through several field guns upon all who wandered
there. b '
In "B" company, the visitor found himself in the Far East and saw about
him Chinese pagodas and Japanese tea villages. The neat waiters in the tea
houses were attractive in their costumes and caused quite a sensation among the
ladies. There were a number of ideas carried out in "C" company. Their grotto,
in the south end of the street was ably constructed and when the colored lights
were burning, the effect was beautiful. In the water were turtles, snakes, frogs
and several ducks-nothing could be found to destroy its naturalness. Gaily
painted and decorated Indians roamed around the street. Several tepees were
located by a roaring camp fire and some distance away an old -prairie schooner
had halted for the night 3 the occupants had their supper cooking in the pot over
the fire and were not in the least disturbed by the close proximity of the Indians.
"D" company, containing several men who intend to take the Engineers, con-
structed a double-lock bridge. On it was placed a roof-garden on the Anheuser-
Busch style. By winding stairxvays you reached the top and here refreshments
were given to those who relied on the ability and skill of the Engineers. A
huge swing was also provided for any one desiring this form of amusement, and
at the entrance to the General Parade a beautiful fountain gushed and sparkled.
There Were many attractive sights in "E" company. Looking at their log
cabin, you were immediately on some plantation and nothing to make it realistic
was lacking. The proverbial mule was tied to the door. A watch dog slept in
a nearby barrel-flour barrel so they say. A coon hide was nailed on the side of
the cabin and several darkies, "a la Newburgf' furnished banjo music and songs
the entire evening. The Grecian Arch erected at the entrance to the street was
of a beautiful design and attractive appearance. .
"P" company had quite an array of brilliant ideas and they were all well
executed. By a street parade through the camp, they drew the crowd into their
street about 9 P. M. Up to this time admission had been denied to all. Passing
through a guarded gate, the crowd entered a pine forest. At the north end a
waterwheel about three feet in diameter was rapidly revolved by an overshot
stream. Entering a cave in the side of a wooden cliff you passed into a laby-
rinth that turned and doubled in amazing fashion. The successful ones emerged
into a delightful little retreat. The southern part of the street was arched
throughout by means of a long and gaily festooned archway, terminating in
a brilliantly lighted dome. Wlien the street was illuminated it was unsur-
passed in point of beauty. A platform had been placed in the dome and here a
"Great Variety Show" followed the street parade.
Allin all, 'twas a great success. The next morning, every one was up and
doing for the great parade. Some say that the ladies at the hotel saw from their
keep a band of half naked barbarians running and cavorting all over the camp.
Naturally, one would expect such an opinion from the unsophisticated or those
who cannot appreciate art on the Grecian or "Ikey" Farnsworth style.

In a few days we broke camp W. E. Shipp, surely the wettest Qexternally and
internallyj, hottest and breeziest camp that ever was, with the usual crowd of
"camp followers and retainers" we marched back to barracks. "Hi-Yi! Hi! Yi!
Never again !" To all of us those summer days were the sources of stories and
jokes unceasing, recollections of many night-mares and strong bonds of friend-
ship. A place Where we successfully mixed recreation and Work, sugar and lem-
onade, seltzer water and-numerous other liquid diets, and in consequence ob-
tained and enjoyed a happy summer vacation at the very reasonable rate of fifty-
three "skins" per Week.

The Downfall of William the Red and
Christopher the Skywegian
CBez5zg an idle z'a!e of ihe Zasfforay qf Roderiek llze Reckless and Pee-A115
OW in the days when the great King Mclnneny sat upon the throne
of the Kay-det Store and James the Iovial held sway in his vassal -
fief, the Mess Hall, it came to pass that there sprang up Within the
l Castle, a strange confederation. Aye, even in the uttermost reaches
5.73 of the Castle, beyond the northernmost sally port, wherein ruleth
Veazey the Vain, was it born. And lo, the confederation erected
unto itself two leaders, to wit, Roderick the Reckless and Pee-Ar,
' 'hve F and in sooth they were mighty meng and for lieutenants they chose
4455, Carl the Cunning and Silas the Sly, whose wiles were known
throughout all the region of the West Points.
Now it was the custom of these young men to rise up in the midst of the
second watch, and gird themselves in gaudy trimmings and trophies of the
chase, andbetake themselves out from their lairs into the open court, which men
do call the Area, and there to make merry in the moonlight. Yea, even whilst the
O. C. slumbered, and the O. D., pounded joyously his ear, would they frolic-after
the manner of young goats in the spring-time-until they grew weary of the
minuet and the timbrels. Then would they gently, and with great stealth enter
that region wherein ruled Henry the Hilarious, also surnamed the Hopoid, and
the region wherein abode Vogney the Villainousg aye, even unto the domain of
Roger, the Assinine, penetrated they.. And, having attained unto the uppermost
chambers, they would begin the game of horse-play and fill the night with hide-
ous noises, to the end that the young men who dwelt therein, being rudely awak-
ened from their slumbers, would tear their hair and beat the air with their
clenched fists and utter curses on the heads of Roderick the Reckless and Pee-Ar.
And men say that he who cursed most wickedly was Humpty the Drunkardg
but that is as may be.
Now, all this was goodly sport and for many moons did it provide the young
men of Veazey the Vain with such princely pasture, that at length they marveled
whereat the other young men came not out to make merry with them. Hence,
they murmured unto themselves, and said one, "Let us go straightway and bid
the young men of Henry the Hilarious to join us, for, verily, they are men of
goodly stature and peradventure, they may add new zest to our games." In
accordance they journeyed straightway to the regions of Henry, which lie over
against the House of Tenths, and arousing the young men therein, addressed
them in this wise, "Get thee up, we beseech thee, and come forth from your
kennels, that we may hold carnival in the open Court." But the young men of
Henry the Hilarious liked well their ease, and would fain lie abed, aye, even unto
the sounding ofthe culverin in the morning were they wont to lie, so no man
moved. Then it was that Pee-Ar taunted them, saying, "Art boning make in
March that ye will not come hence or be ye bluffed of the German that ye fear to
make merry P"
Now this vexed the young men of Henry exceedingly and they grew wroth
and took Council together, saying, "So, we must needs put forth a delegation to
join these barbarians in their tournament, lest we become humbled, in the eyes
of these men of Veazey the Vain, which would be a grievous thing." But when
they came to determine who shouldst go forth there was much diversity of opin-
ion. "For," quoth one, Uwe must in sooth send out our most crafty men in order
that we may keep pace with Roderick the Reckless and Pee-Ar, and be not an
ell-pe in the formation." Hence they cast votes to Hx the choice and when the
votes were reckoned, it was found that he who had received the greatest portion
was one Williain the Red, a man famed for his cunning, and who abode with
Sandy the Circus-rider Cthe same who afterward journeyed at midnight to the
Cathedral, with Arthur the Play-actorj. And for a henchman unto William the
Red, they chose Christopher the Skywegian, who dwelt with Bigelow the Bum.
Then did these two, without delay, gird up their loins, and annoint their
heads with dog-water, and make ready for the joust. Eftsoons, when they
stood ready to set out, XfVilliam the Red took in his right hand a pail filled with
huge stones-even with quartzite and granite was it Hlled-and in his left hand
he bore a section of gas-pipe, two cubits long and the thickness of a man's arm.
And the stones he took that he, together with Christopher the Skywegian, might
cast them heavenward so that, in falling, they shouldst tinkle merrily on the roof
of the House wherein is the Boiler. Moreover, with the pipe did he purpose
to deliver lusty blows upon the stairways, thinking by this to emulate Roderick
the Reckless. As the pair thus bravely arrayed stood forth, a murmur of ad-
miration burst from the lips of the young men of Henry the Hilarious, and to their
eyes came a look of triumph such as lighteth up the countenance of an L. P.
when she pranceth into the room of the hop. "Of a verity," quoth each man to
his neighbor, "this seemeth a goodly pair, mayhap they may e'en perform such
stunts as will outstrip these border ruffians who dwell under the hill." p
Then softly and without more ado did the company take the road, and at
their head strode Roderick the Reckless and Pee-Ar, and in their rear was Silas
the Sly together with Carl the Cunning, but in the midst, aye, even in the very
center, went William the ,Red and Christopher the Skywegian. And as they
journeyed they leaped high into the air, and lfVilliam shook fiercely the pail
wherein were the stones, and with the pipe he dealt blows in the air even as does
the Captain of the Battery when he perceiveth a young man who tieth up the
drill. And proceeding in this wise the merry-makers had but reached the cen-
ter of the open court, wherein the young men of ill repute were wont to walk on
Saturday afternoon 5 and Pee-Ar had but begun to admire the effect of the har-
vestmoon on the hair of Vlfilliam the Red-which was, indeed, surpassing
beautiful-when a strange thing befell.
Now, it so fell out that the Quilloid of the Red-sash for this day was one
Scott, known as Riley the Rude, and he was of a verity, of the most war-like
nature, and a man such as young children shoiuld shun, but of him it sufficeth
to say that he did dwell of his own will, with Matthew the Sep. Now this man,
having caused the tom-tom to be beaten for the second time, between the Ioth
and 11th hour, also having witnessed that the lights of the young men hadst
been placed under a bushel, had slunk to his cell and made himself ready to rest.
Howbeit, ere he yet slumbered, there assailed his ears the hideous howlings of
Roderick's men as they sported in the Area! Hence was Riley the Rude con-
strained to get him up and again Wind on the Red Sash, and truly his sayings
as he did so were most unseemly. Then having attained unto the open court, he
tried most valiantly, and with many wiles, to lay hands on the cohorts of Roderick
and Pee-Ar, and his threats were most fearful. And Riley needed to take but one
man, for, lo, it is a usage in the Castle that if a single one be taken whilst en-
gaged in horse-play, he must needs make known to the Great Man, the titles -of
those who sported with him.
But e'en though Riley's strategy was most diabolical, yet it compared not with
that of Pee-Ar and his hordes, for whilst Riley was here, Pee-Ar was yonder,
and in the end did Riley the Rude pant so that his very tongue hung out, and
he foamed at the mouth and blasphemed unrighteously.
Now, it happened at length, that Riley, having wearied himself in bootless
pursuit, did betake himself, during a lull in the pastime, within the shadows of
the House of the Boiler, and there having hidden himself cunningly, did await
the pleasure of Roderickls men. And even whilst Riley lay hidden, behold,
from out of the first principality of Henry the Hilarious, there appeared that
strange assemblage, of 'which there has already been mention. E'en as though
guided by some ill star, the young men bore down directly on Riley the Rude,
who stood silent on the night and moved not.
Eftsoons, while there yet remained betwixt Riley and his prey but a scant
margin, he uttered a weird, uncanny cry and hurled himself full at the com-
pany. Now, Roderick and Pee-Ar, being not unfamiliar with such happenings,
faded away in the night, and together with all their band escaped fsave in-
deed Silas the Sly, who tied up the signals most grievously and was capturedj.
But not so with Williaiii the Red and Christopher the Skywegian. These, being
accustomed to the gentle and maidenly pastimes of Henry's portion of the
Castle, knew not whither to turn, and whilst they stood thus thrusting out their
tongues and twirling their thumbs in terror, Riley the Rude closed with them,
yard arm to yard arm, and grasping in his right hand Williaiii the Red and in
his left hand Christopher the Skywegian, he led them toward their kennels, mock-
ing them the while and saying, 'fGet thee back, damsels, to thy needle-work and
no more essay to play the parts of men. Verily, at this sport your rank is as
high as a platter of slum at a furlough banquet. Get abed and rest, for ere
this thing is over I vveen the time will come when thou wouldst rest most wil-
linglyf' And Williaiii the Red and Christopher the Skywegian lifted their
voices' and wept, yet went they straightway to bed, for in fact the fear of Riley
the Rude was heavy upon them. ' '
The next Saturday there did appear, among the armed men who walk the
open court, two new conscripts, and lo, the countenance of each bore a look
of one who is caught in his neighbor's sheep-fold taking therefrom a young
lamb. In the papers of the Captain of the Guard was writ: "On that post
which is numbered I6 shall walk William the Red, and on that post which is
numbered I7 shall Walk Christopher the Skywegiang and hark ye not to their
murmurings, neither let any man disturb them until there remaineth but ten
minutes ere the evening eulverin sounds."
And in this wise, whilst the Great King ruled in the Kay-det Store and
James the jovial sat high upon the throne of his vassal fief, the Mess Hall, didst
terminate the midnight wanderings of Roderick the Reckless and Pee-Ar.

THE JABBER WALK
'Twas Corkling and the Windy Iime
Did jib and jabber o'er the leag
All brakey was the wavering line..
And the count went One, Two, Three.
"Beware the Iabber Walk, my boy!
The jaws that ope, the quills that scratch!
Beware the Simple Sime, and shun
The furious Chevron snatch."
He took his scorpal pen in hand:
Long time the Bee-lick bone he sought.
So rested he, by the First div tree,
And stood awhile in thought.
As in the broodling breeze he stood,
The Iabber WValk with quill in hand,
Came swishing up with ways of wood,
And burbling came to stand.
Swish-swish! Swish-swish! And scratch and
The scorpal pen went splicker-splack!
The Bee-lick bone had boned with vie,
And round the corn' went back.
And has thou skinned O! Jabber Walk!
Come to my arms, my Simple Sime!
Oh, slum-gudge day! Swish-Swish! Hooray
W'ent swiddling down the line. n
'Twas Corkling and the Windy Iime
Did jib and jabber o'er the leag
All brakey was the wavering line,
And the count went One, Two, Three.

I was raised in the hills where the Army is
Only by old soldiers' tales,
And when to the state of man I had grown,
I quit my splitting rails,
And into this sea of trouble was blown
In a ship full set with sails.
My cargo was wood, like my native rails,
Unseasoned, dense, and greeng
And if you'll believe some of the tales,
My like was never seen,
So my awkward old craft was beset with gales,
Xlvlltll never a calm between!
I strolled into camp on reporting day
To take a squint around,
And asked upper-classmen who came my way
Wfhere the "Com" and the "Supe" could be found.
And confided that I, too, was estray,
And would soon be put in the pound,
XXVQS I in the "awkward squadn? Oh, no!
I had a squad of my own!
I would drop my gun upon my toe,
And then turn out a groan,
And no matter, to what 'fsoireeu I'd go,
Three "corp's" watched me alone!
I couldn't keep step with the big bass drum,-
Don't smile, it's really a fact!
I saluted every sergeant, "corp", and "bum',,
But I never saluted a "tac"!
I ate 'lhell-sauce" with my "sammy" and f'slum",
And swallowed prunes by the sack!
Did I get Heagledn and "braced"? Well, perhaps!
I was popular beyond compare,
I "braced" before reveille and "eagled"
No "soiree" but I was there.
I mended dress coats, white trousers, and
And never ltd a minute to spare!
They made an armory out of my tent,
I cleaned guns by the score,
I was "crawled" and "braced" wherever I
And' did "wooden-willies" galore,
And I'll never forget the day I was sent
To be "braced" by each man in the Corps.
Oh, my brain was tired and my bones. were sore
But I didn't have time to resign,
all day and slept on the Hoof,
And it drew the knots from my spinexg
My vase of. conceit was kicked through the door,
And I learned other names than mine!
days have passed-those glorious days
We ne'er shall see them more.
Gone, long gone, are the old, old ways,
Like the soul of the old, old Corps!
And all in all, I doubt if it pays
To forget those traditions of yore!

i HE wildest excitement prevailed in the area. Never since the day
' on which we beat Chicago had there been such a furor. A shout-
' ing, struggling knot of men surrounded an object which had been
Q found by Hilarious Henry in front of the boiler-house. Men came
I pouring from all parts of barracks for a look at this weird thing.
X3 EA, From the 5th and 6th and the two angle divisions the gentle chil-
dren laid down their toys and rushed out from their nurseries.
Ei - The paths leading from the Ilth and 12th divisions were black with
t T' the wild, unkempt men who make up that barbaric horde called
"F" Co. Surmises were rife as to the nature of the object, around
which the mob danced and howled. It was oval-shaped, about the size of a foot-
ball, hardness 1.3, rhombohedral crystals, conchoidal fracture and color shading
through white, blue, green, red and black, though usually light brown, streak
cherry red. Hilarious Henry could make nothing of it, neither could Sandy Mc-
Andrew. Sandy said he had never seen anything similar in Arkansas-but re-
fused to leave' as it was the same color as Montgomery. T. Gimp was unde-
cided as to whether it was lapis lapizuli-or firebrick, but said he could tell if he
had a bottle of acid. Willie Harris believed it to be an important historical dis-
covery, for he claimed he could see john Smith's name on it. B. I. Richardson
was convinced that if any one would look at it through the coil, looking in the
positive direction of the lines of force, he could see that it was calcareous tufa.
Grace declared it to be a piece of stalagmite, such as the tablet which nature
erected over the grave of the cave man, and swore he could lick any one that
disputed it. jim Vifoolnough was just as positive that it was a meteorite-said
he could show it to any one in the Ephemeris. Jody Park concluded that it was
a section of ia wave-front and "Nap." Riley was of the opinion that it was
fossiliferous shale-a remnant of the Paleozoic. At this point Runt Moody
butted into the inner circle and shrieked that it was a tenth, and it took six
"A" Co. men to-hold him off. At this exciting moment Tam Smart loomed
up, and when he caught sight of it, gave a glad cry of recognition. Quickly he
knelt beside it while the sun beat down on his bald head, causing the brilliant
points to play to and fro in a bewildering fashion. The stillness was intense.
Then solemnly rising, the Pride of Hartford said: "Gentlemen, I know what this
is-forsooth I see them every day. 'Tis simply a worn-out chew of the brown
dropped by Rafe Glass as he went to riding." And the crestfallen crowd slunk
homeward. ' ,
"WHITEY'S" RECORD WALK
Gat-her 'round me friends, a tale I bear, V
'Tis the lonesome walk of "Wl1itey" McNair.
One Saturday about to return
From a six-hour leave-he failed to discern
Time's rapid flight-the coming train,
The shrieking whistle called in vain.
The cause of this you wish to know?
Wliy he should be obliging so?
The answer to this is always the same,
"Chercl1ez la femme"-has passed into fame.
Parting in sorrow, poets call bliss,
McNair could import some knowledge of this'
Standing at the door with the maid close by,
"'Whitey" looked sad and said with a sigh:
t'The evening comes-the day grows late,"
Ml must be going-or else b-ache"
'KA skin-Farewell, one moment more."
"There is no hurry-stay-I imploref'
The friend is pleased,- grants the request,
Remains a moment with her guest.
He said "Good-night," then, with rapid stride,
Ran to the station for his homeward ride
just as his train was steaming away.
'Tis the way of the spoonoid so people say.
Misfortune now dispelled his joy,
The train had gone-but not the boy.
To 'West Point he must go with haste.
So quickly down the track he raced,
Not stopping' once for a parting view
Of the pretty maiden he had bid adieu.
Eight miles to walk-sad truth indeed, a
For railroad ties fast travel impede.
But still he kept on-unhappy, weary.
Night had come-dark, cold and dreary,
Along the river's winding path
His rapid steps betrayed his wrath.
Then in the shadow of a hill,
Save for the traveler all was still,
No night-bird's call, no tinkling bell,
Footsteps only on the silence fell.
Slowly the telegraph poles were passed,
Nevertheless he was Walking fast.
Quite despondent, ill-natured and sore,
'lnoughts of cons and demerits galore
VVoulcl not dispel his feelings tense,
Wotild not prevent his total absence.
Onward he plods with aching feetg
Ill fares the man that he should nieet.
Language was used to alleviate
His strained condition-present state.
All things must end-the journey closed.
Before the traveler 'West Point reposed.
He hastened on to sign his return,
l-low big an absence also to learn,
Fifty-six minutes he was late,
The O. D. hendishly began to state.
Wea1'ily then he trudged to his roomg
No reason though for all this gloom.
Throughout the Corps it was the talk

QVVITH ALL DUE RESPECT TO ROBERT BURNSJ
VVallie Wastle dwalt in Orange-
The spot they called it Linkuni Doddie.
Wallie was a tenthoid bold, .
Could bluff the Coin. wi' ony bodie.
She was a wife so dour and din-
Her clapper tongue would cleave a miller,
Sic' a Wife as 'Wallie was
I wadna gie a button for her.
She's bough-hougbed, she's hein-shinned,
Ae limpin' leg a hand-breed shorter.
She's twisted right, she's twisted left
To balance fair in ilka quarter.
She has no hair upon her chin?
A mighty hump upon her shoulder 1-
Sic' a wife as Wallie was
I wadna gie a button for her.
A SMGKE DURING CALLA TO QUARTERS
O, happy man! who has an hour
To call his own.
VVhen e'en this thought has lost its power,
"I have to bone."
Wlieii he can take his only chair,
And raise his feet into the air,
Rejoicing while he's sitting there,
That he's alone.
O, happy man who does but dare
To take a smoke.
Who looks at danger everywhere,
As just a joke.
Who sees the smoke above him rise,
Form Wonders there before his eyes,
A sight no smoker can despise.
In smoke he sees his happy home
So far away.
He sees the fields he used to roam
In childish play.
He sees the smoke now form a frame,
A face appears without a name,
But then, to him it's all the same.
O pretty smoke!
Forgetting all, he leaps to seize
That face so fair. Q
His arms have closed with greatest ease
On naught but air.
The picture quickly fades from sight,
He smashes in his upward flight,
The mantel in his Welsbacli light.
O cursed smoke!
IN COMMEMORATION SEPTEMBER 4, 1903, 6.19 P. M
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
'Twas the night before Christmas, 'twas still as a mouse,
W'hen six tacs assembled within the guard-house.
Each one was supplied with a lantern bull's-eye,
To him' the cadets, they said they would try.
The clock struck eleven as these burly men,
To begin their inspection, came out of their den.
They were sure that the boys they would find out of bed,
And quite likely that some would be having a spread,
They proceeded with caution in mounting the stair,
All rooms were inspected with greatest of care.
But throughout the barracks they heard not a sound,
And skins for the skin-book were hard to bc found.
They returned one by one all disgusted and hot,
Because no fat skins for their trouble they got.
The tac from "B" company was last to appear,
W'ith a box in his arm he proclaimed with good cheer:
NI didn't get skins but, -my lucky stars,"
"I captured this box hlled with dollar cigars'
"You know the cadets tried to hide them from me,"
"But I found them behind the hall-stair, you see,"
"They think I am wooden, but they"l1 End, if you please,"
'fThat I am the fox and they are the geese."
"I think that this is a most practical joke,"
"So come all you skinoids, let's all have a smoke."
They all lit cigars, they all felt immense,
Because they were smoking at cadets' expense.
But sad to relate, their joy was not long,
For something about them did smell awful strong
And all of a sudden a noise filled the air,
Swish! Bang! Swish! Bang! Oh, my what a scare.
The lights all were out and over the floor,
The tacs and cigars, they were lying galore.
It'took quite a while before they came to,
For in their fright they hardly knew what to do.
The cigars had been loaded with powder and salt,
To the would-be sly fox they said, "It's all your fault."
The Black Book and Blue Book they searched through and t
But they searched all in vain for the want of a clue.
They could not find out who the culprit might be,
For the box had been found in the hall, as you see.
Their utter dismay you're unable to pen,
They went home much sadder but much wiser men.
And I think when old Christmas is coming
For the tacs after taps cadets need not fear.
The moral of this, I'll tell if you choose:
Although 3l0'Llf,1'C a fox, beware of the goose,

HOW HIAWATHA CAME T0 WEST POINT
From the Hudson came the Warriors,
Spiek and span in all their war paint.
Up the hill they marched in column,
Drum Major with dazzling shako
Followed by the Red Coat Brass Band
Playing, playing Hiawatha.
Then the Burgesses in splendor.
Gitche May-pole with the colors.
Urged them on to do their bestest
On this momentous occasion.
In the Wake came on a plodding
Little Iako, with his satchel,
Filled with medicine relieving,
So they tried to have us thinking.
They were doing some deceiving,
For we saw a bottle peeking,
Such as people use so often
Wfhen they wish their cares to soften.
So it is, my little children,
That we first heard Hiawatha.

ECHOES OF THE SUMMER

The moon had not yet risen,
But the i'Mary Powell" showed by her light,
Some one holding what was not his'n.
The container was-but why should I tell
The name of a tile so soon.
Ifle has no peer in heaven or hi,
In driving a "co-ed" platoon.
And the thing contained-a little handg
Size, eight by four by three.
And she could talk to beat the band,
just like any old L. P.
But now and then, a chuckle would Hoat
On the circumambient air.
Silent at first, just like a "goat,"
Then loud like a polar bear.
And while I listened I could hear
Her voice with an accent hoarse,
It seemed to me so very queer
That she should use such "Force"
"Oh, Mr. Riley. you may forget me,
Perhaps 'tis better that you shouldf'
"But I shall never forget thee,
' No, never, my dear, if I could."
Just then the moon came out of her screen.

'VVAR ITEM-By our special correspondent on board the "Pegasus," off XVest Point,
N. Y., Sept. 27, 1903. II.0O P. M. Lights out.
An important engagement has just taken place. "General Nap" Riley was
seen about 10.15 P. M., with his entire platoon, moving as if to make a frontal
attack on the Hotel de Ville, a large asylum of reconcentration, towering from
the rocky heights Washed by the turbulent Waters of the Hudson. Owing to
the daring and coolness of Private P. Lug Moller, a dashing and peerless scout,
who happened to be making astronomical observations near the hedge, the entire
party was discovered in time to prevent any serious results. It is expected how-
ever, that the whole band will sally forth from their stronghold in the morning
and attempt to harass the enemy while at Guard-Mount.

This silhouette was turned in to the -

artist, but we have reason to believe that it
Was drawn by the subject of picture him-
self. We cannot ascribeithis strange action
to a feeling akin to malice, nor to an intent
to deceive, but rather 'to a desire of the
person to clear himself of certain rumors in
connection with a tete-aetete which took
place on the hotel porch last summer. joe,
the hotel porter, on being questioned by
our private detective, states that the out-
line of the face bears a close resemblance
to a certain tall, handsome Cadet Lieuten-

A TOAST DELIVERED BY CADET ROBERT P. HARBOLD
AT THE NEW YEAR'S DINNER, JANUARY 1, IQO4
.3 R. Toastmaster, Gentlemen of the Corps of Cadets :-Several things
n confront me now and have always appalled me since I have been
. asked to respond to this toast. The first is my utter inability, the
' K second is the wide range of the subject, too vast for me to begin
Qv i V to cover, and the third is the cynical and too critical part of the
'Sig Corps. ,
5' C211 I My inability is evident to all. I realize it just as fully as you
, I do. In no single way can I attempt to do justice to the Toast.
i Could We hear one respond to this who possessed the eloquence of
Demosthenes, the logic of Aristotle, the reasoning of Plato, com-
bined with the foresight of Vlfebster, then we, you and I, would perceive and
understand many, many questions that arise from time to time in our midst.
Many past events of our lives here would then be explained. The future of our
Alma Mater would be viewed in a brighter atmosphere. We could then calmly
listen to those calamity-howlers who cry aloud that the Corps is going to the
dogs since they have graduated, yes, we could calmly listen and then smile at
IV e could also reply to those among us whose esprit de corps seems to have
been shaken by the pessimists of our' Institution's future. And then, when our
years are through, we could leave this place confident of its prosperity,-the re-
tention of its traditions and ideals, and the honor and integrity of its gradu-
VV'ould that those wiseacres who from time to time offer suggestions to us
and criticize our methods, our actions, and our lives, could be compelled to thor-
oughly and impartially study our present conditions,-the revolution through
which we have passed, and then would they still rant and rave?
They have become blind to actual facts, they disregard the truths taught by
all revolutions, moral or political, and unjustly condemn us. Can past institu-
tions, past methods of the Corps be suddenly wiped away and in their place put
new institutions and new methods without the Corps experiencing the slightest
shock or tremor? IN hy, in this assumption we have been paid unknowingly the
greatest compliment and tribute.
But we can not do this. NN e are only human. We canit replace old ideals
by untried and unknown new ones without doubting the wisdom of the change,-
without hesitancy and reluctance in making the change. I-Iowever, we are now
working out our own salvation and we want to work it out unaided as well as
unhindered by any other person, be he graduate or civilian.
Gentlemen of the first class, we have seen and experienced nearly four years
of the life at the Military Academy. W' e have personally witnessed a great revo-
lution in its history. We were, at the most, but silent observers of the active part
of this revolution, but now, with the other three classes we are struggling par-
ticipants in its reaction. Oftentimes, maybe too often, we despair over this radi-
cal revolution and are unwilling to struggle any longer. '
Vlfith us there rests a great duty. NN e must make strenuous efforts to clear
the dimmed horizon of the Corps' future. We must, by the assistance of all, de-
termine our course in these efforts.
Success-entire, complete and thorough, will not reward our labors, but
"half-free and struggling on" will be solace to us when we join the register of
We want to proceed along such lines so that the men in every class can
plainly see these lines delineated in our actions. If the path is plainly marked
no man will go wandering away. Succeeding classes as they enter will follow
in our footsteps and the consequence of this movement will be the freedom of
One thing may appear to some this afternoon, and that is that I am exag-
gerating our conditiong a mere change I call a moral revolution, a few incon-
veniences I attempt to have assume shapes of monstrous proportions. But such
is not so. Everyone of you frankly confess after thoughtful deliberation whether
I have made a mountain out of a mole-hill, whether I have exavffferated one
iota. Do this honestly and I am positive of your reply.
i Let us rid ourselves of all traces of pessimism we may now have. Our old
ideals were good ones. We hated to lose them, but their fate is inevitably sealed.
The future alone can now be consulted. If some of us bemoan the lack of class
sentiment and the total absence of Corps spirit,-I reply your sources of grief are
unfounded. Either you measure us all by your own standard of hypocrisy or
you misjudge us entirely as a Corps.
With you rests the question of the Corps' future. The enormity of your re-
sponsibility should impress you. Can men in new classes be convinced that the
Corps is gradually recovering from the reaction when you go around bevvailing its
condition, deploring its state, and end your tale of Woes with the expression,
"And I don't give a damn ?" Can you go to any outsider and tell him your trou-
blesg-tell him how the Corps is not what it once Was, Without implicating your-
self? VVhy, you even lack loyalty to the place, tothe institution, as Well as the
least semblance of class and Corps spirit if you do such a thing.
Wliat can We expect from other classes When they constantly hear outbursts
like I have cited? The influence of the first class should not be of this character.
I am glad to say this influence is very slight, but it must be entirely eliminated.
You, gentlemen of the second class, you, by nearly three years' association
with various classes at the Academy, have learned Well its useless struggle against
fate. You see your duty plainly marked. I only hope you may be far more suc-
cessful in the fulfillment of this duty than we have been.
IQO6 will succeed you, follow in your trace-do as you have done, and
they in turn followed by 1907. If we, 1904, have made mistakes, you, IQO5,
must correct them, and you, IQO6 and 1907, must not go back into the same old
errors. The only changes to be made are those which institute improvements.
Never must honor and sentiment retrograde. VVe must all consider ourselves
jealous guardians of the Corps as well as members of it. .
In conclusion, several questions naturally present themselves. Wliy they
should be suggested is evident to all.
First-Will we in after years, when referring to the Corps of Cadets, or
coming in contact with it, will we, by unjust and odious comparisons with the
Corps of past years, seek to lower its then present standard, deride its spirit and
forget our ovvn birthright?
Second-VV'ill We now, for the sake of grievances against some, sacrifice our
institution's sentiment and honor?
Third-Do we fully realize, now and at all times, the duty We ovve to our-
selves and the Corps? '
The future of the Corps is assured. I am confident of its success. The name
it has inspired in past years will be perpetuated in future generations.
The Corps! Bareheaded salute itg
VVith eyes up thanking our God.
That we of the Corps are treading
Whe1'e they of the Corps have trod.
They are here in ghostly assemblage,
The men of the Corps long dead,
And our hearts are standing attention
Wliile we wait for their passing tread.
We, sons of to-day, salute you-
You sons of its earlier dayg
'We follow, close order, behind you,
Wliere you have pointed the wayg
The long gray line of us stretches
Through the years of a century told,
And the last man feels to his marrow
The grip of your far-off hold.
Grip hands with us now, though we see not,
Grip hands with us, strengthen our hearts,
As the long line stiffens and straightens,
VVith the thrill that your presence impartsg
Grip hands-though it be from the shadows
While we swear, as you did of yore,
Or living or dying to honor
The Corps, and the Corps, and the Corps!

HE Board of Editors take this opportunity to ac-
knowledge the many valuable contributions received
during the preparation of the HOWITZER. Many,
as you will see, have found their way between its covers:
while many, alas, have been "policed" in the hallway, to
be there gathered by Louis, the policeman. The efforts,
however, were all good, and do credit to the persons who,
notwithstanding their many and arduous duties, still found
the opportunity to come off " specking " for a time and put
their shoulders to the wheel.
Editors generally reply, "that your contribution is
excellent, but not quite in our line, etc." With the
HOWITZER, however, want of space is the only reason for
refusal. lf there are any who prize their contributions so
highly as to coerce their saner self into handing them down
to posterity, we will be willing to return all such copies,
properly blue-pencilecl, and endorsed with an appropriate
recommendation by our oflice boy, leemsy. All requests
for returns must be accompanied by the necessary postage,
plus a pound of Bull, much of which has been consumed
in the dreary hours of the night. ln conclusion, we wish
to express our thanks not only to those who have so con-
sistently "bootlicked" us, but also to those who have so
persistently "run it all over" us.
Our ,Tune has come, Nineteen-Four,
The june of our boyhood dreams,
We must say good-bye to the dear old Corps,
Good-bye to the Gray we shall donno more!
Our June has come! Our June! Our June!
We've Watched and waited long,-
Watclued the days Ele by in squads and platoon,
Waited for the day which is here so soon.
So here's good-bye, Nineteen-Four,-
For some perhaps the last!
May We ever honor the Gray we wore!
God-bless you all and the Corps-and the Corps!

THE LIFE INSURANCE SUCCESS OF THE AGE
NEW INSURANCE POLICY J
As a result of a thorough investigation recently' made by the
Prudential Insurance Company of America of the conditions sur-
rounding Army oiiicers in times, of pr-ace and in war, announce'
ment has just been made of a new Army policy to be hereafter
issued by this company which does away with all extra premiums
in ,peace or war placing officers of the army in a special dividend
class, and extends to Army oiiicers all the privileges enjoyed by
civilians. This provision is retroactive and all Army oiicers now
insured, in the Prudential, may change their policies so as to secure
the bent-:Hts of this concession.
This decision will Without doubt be welcomed by present
Army holders of Prudential policies as well as by ofxicers who
are contemplating taking out policies, and is largely due to
the efforts of Mr. A. W. McNeil, manager of the con1pany's Army
and Navy departments. Mr. McNeil convinced the officers of the
Prudential Company that this concession would mean increased
business among Army officers, as its liberality would be appre-
ciated. Armymen who are policy holders and who have paid an
extra premium in the past in cash may arrange to have same
returned, the Company agreeing in case of death of the policy
holder to pay his estate all extra premiums paid, and if the insured
shall live until the end of the dividend period, and the policy is at
that time in force, the Company will pay, in addition to the guar-
anteed amount stated in theipolicy, all extrapremiums paid to the Company in cash, together with the accumu-
lated dividend then apportioned. Where the premium has become a lien under the policy at 'dve per cent. interest,
the lien will be cancelled and no interest will be charged the insured while the lien was in force.
Manager McNeil feels sure that oiiicers of the Army will appreciate the liberal action of the Prudential
Insurance Company, and that the'Company will more than ever be looked upon as the "Army Ofdcers' Company."

I-IE great house of Tiffany SL Co., Union Square, New York,
is famous in every section of the world. Its fame is based on
a solid foundation. F or originality, Tiiany SL Co. are unsurpassedg
the skill and intelligence shown in the execution of their work are
themes for continuous comment, while in artistic detail, and con-
scientious care, they are far in advance of European or American
competitors. It is not, therefore, a matter for surprise that Kaiser
William, of Germany, should become intensely interested in a speci-
men of Tiffany 8: Co.'s exquisitely beautiful work-a vase presented
to the Frankfort Saengerfest, by the Wealthy New Yorker, Mr.
Pagenstecher. When the Kaiser saw this vase, he exclaimed :
" Wonderful? Such work cannot be done in Germany! U The
Kaiser's habit of bluntly telling the truth, did not please the
German silversmiths, who sent a deputation to complain that his
assertion was unjust. The Kaiser refused to Heat his words," as
they say in Russia, replying to the deputation as follows : "I will
give you one more chance! If you fail, I will order my trophies in
New York in future."
Could any higher compliment, or more substantial recognition,
be given to the Hrm of Tiffany 81 Co. ?i Americans are justly proud
of this great house, and The Item predicts that " one more chance "
will be sufdcient to convince the mighty German Emperor that if
he Wants trophies that are the best in all respects--representing the
highest accomplishment in originality, art and manufacture-he
must give the order to TiH'any Sz Co.

Points of Superiority
Stop is positive in its action, and holds the cylinder in perfect alignment with the barrel, regardless of any other part
Cylinder notches are reinforced with hardened steel pieces, to prevent notches from becoming worn by the impact of
the cylinder stop against the sides of the notches.
All ofthe small springs are spiral, thereby preventing the danger ofbreaking, a defect common to all small flat springs.
Lock studs are screwed into the frame, have collars raised above its surface, and,in conjunction with steel bosses
milled on the side plate, hold all working parts central and prevent friction.
Locking pin works in hardened collar set into frame.
Hardened collar set into extractor aad raised above the ratchet teeth. This collar iinpinges upon the collar in frame,
prevents the ratchet teeth from coming in contact with the frame, and forms a hardened surface which saves the
cylinder from longitudinal wear and loosening.
A positive cylinder lock, so constructed that the cvlinder cannot be thrown out when the arm is cocked, or the arm
cocked when the cylinder is out, therebv making it absolutely impossible to discharge the arm when not fully locked.
Strcangsolid egztractor rod, and boss on barrel to fill space between barrel and rod when pistol is closed,to prevent
en ing o rod.
Hammer nose so shaped that the blow will be in direct line with the cartridge, thus preventing the copper from being
driven towards the bottom of primer, as by the usual raking blow of tne solid hammer nose
Barrel screwed into place, brought to perfect alignment by multiplying gauges, and pinned into position. This is a
radical improvement over the method of screwing the barrel against shoulders tight enough to draw the stock of
Cylinder so chambered that the ball on leaving shell fills the front end of cylinder and prevents excessive loss of gas.
Stud and spring fitted in the yoke and working into a small detent in the joint, to prevent the cylinder from swinging
loosely when the arm is opened.
Ease with which the arm can be operated with one hand.
Convenience in assembling and disassembling.
The head of extractor and extractor stem are made in one piece. It is therefore impossible for the extractor head to
turn on stem.

Do you suppose the best judges of shoes and 'gloves in the world would
pay a higher price for SOROSIS if they did not know it was worth it?
Nearly one-third of the immense SOROSIS product, is sold abroad.

are, we could never supply the demand.

FOR USE IN SMALL STREAMS
The importance of correct hydraulic measurements
has brought the Current-Meter into general use, and
while our Current-Meter, No. 600, has long been
recognized as standard for observation on large
streams, in recent years there has been a demand
for alight and serviceable instrument for use in
small streams and irrigation or drainage ditches.
For some time, aided by the suggestions of the en-
gineers in charge of the hydrographic work of the
United, States Geological Survey, we have been per-
fecting the small Electric Current-Meter shown in
the cut, and listed in our catalogue as No. 617.
This Meter, while constructed practically along the
lines of Current-Meter No. 600, has the advantage of
extreme lightness, weighing only about two pounds.
No. 617 Price, as shown, 560.00
