E pllshed during nine years of service by oui former
A Y ' I chaplain, the Reverend Herbert Shipman.
The fact that Mr. Shipman Was appointed chaplain in 1896
and served as such until his resignation nine years later, does not
and cannot convey to one not connected with the Academy, an
idea of his influence With the Corps or of the place of high esteem
he occupies in our hearts. It Was because he so well combined the
art of preaching with the yet higher art of living among men, that
every man of us looked upon him as a personal friend and helper.
Between Mr. Shipman and us there has sprung up a lasting
friendship, "durable from the daily dust of life," and We, among
Whom his labors have been spent, in dedicating to him this Volume,
do likewise extend therewith, the heart-felt best Wishes of the Corps
he served so faithfully and so Well. -

4 N confiding this book to the tender mercies of the
Corps and its friends, We do not deem it necessary
to set forth an extended history of its foundation, for
this field has been so thoroughly covered by our es-
. L' teemed predecessors that any further repetition on
our part Would be useless, and Would of necessity fall upon deaf
Suffice it to say, the HOWITZER is of an ancient and honorable
lineage: a volume that in the olden days has sometimes brought
down upon itself the frown of the "Powers that Bef' but Which
may yet look back upon a past in which much real good has been
accomplished, and, strong in this knowledge, may turn toward the
future which With so great a promise lies stretched out before it.
In the hope, then, that this book may Worthily fill its place in
our hearts, We do contribute this record of our deeds and mis-
deeds With the Wish that Whatever of good this volume may con-
tain be not interred With our bones, but remain alive to keep green
the memory of this year.

The father of our flock from the earliest days of Beast Barracks,
-'kAbe" bears the responsibility of his large family with a won-
derfully easy conscience. His countenance is like unto that of the har-
vest moon, and some say that he gets full with the same unchanging
regularity. This last, though, we neither admit or deny, but leave
'Abew to get out of the scrape the best way he can. As a section
marcher in plebe camp "Abe" had his troubles, and so seldom did
the sun go down on a skin list that he didn't head, that pretty soon
special forms were issued with his name already printed at the top for
the convenience of the Corn's clerk. uWhifHe's" return from furlough
was heralded throughout the country by an illustrated article in uTown
Topics," and ever since he has been beseiged by reporters and chorus
girls begging for his picture.
ANDREWS, FRANK-M., "Andy," Nashville, Tennessee.
Acting Sergeant, A. B.
'lHe it was, so rumor has it,
Rose before the early cock crew,
Rose before the cursed "hell-cats,"
Rose before the sleepless bonoids,
That he might send unto a maiden
In a far-off distant city,
Words expressing his affection."
worst of it is, it's all true. No wonder K'Andy," who
notoriety, begged that a blank be left after his name.
He was not always thus, for there was a time when he had few social
pretensions and would much rather sleep than spoon, but now the
only attraction that can drag him from Flirtation is the pleasure of
tying his legs around some poor flea-bitten polo pony for an after-
dinner romp with the tacs. "Andy," though, for all his spooning pro-
pensities makes an excellent neighbor, is a solid Democrat, and knows
a good 'ggrindw when he hears one.

With the aid of a powerful microscope you may succeed in "find-
ingw this molecule though all the uP's" in our land of ufesses'
never could, for, strange as it may seem, he's a very minute speck
and yet one of the biggest uspeesn that has ever held up' a straggling
tenth. Notwithstanding his insignificant size he has already boned up
a bluff on Tom Jenkins, and it is said that the "long horses l' in the
gym run whenever they see him coming. A notable musician, "Spec"
regularly makes the evening hideous between supper and call to quar-
ters by trying to see how many different languages he can make his
Cornet speak at the same time.

"Then if he says he loves you,
It its your wisdom to so far believe it
As he in his particular act and place
May give his saying deed."
Truly a versatile gentleman and one gifted with a remarkable
vocabulary. He believes it is to the scandal and disgrace of the
Corps of Cadets that his classmates cannot recite all their lessons in
French, for, although he browses with the goats in Math., he has
thrown a diamond hitch on the first place in this pet language of his,
in fact, he believes French to be the only language that gentlemen
can speak nowadays. With the aid of a few picturesque phrases he
can convince you that West Point is but a suburb of the lower regions
and incidentally make you ashamed of your own feeble knocks. A
most talented grafter, he is fond of telling the gullible ones of how he
used to Heece the ulambsf' and of that momentous occasion when he
smoked the pipe of peace with Tammany. fl

Hundredth Night Committeeg A. B.
Bradn was run out of his home town by his own admission, so
that is why he is here. He has long been one of F Company's
own, and may be seen with the noisy crowd almost any time-except
after taps, when wild horses couldn't drag him from his pillow. He
once aspired to be a "make" and travelled some distance along the
road of Quill, but-well, the summer was hot and the "gold-medal"
comfortable, so 'kBrad" concluded that a gun was good enough for
him, and took out a life membership with uThe Boys." His career
as a stage manager has been a howlingsuccess, and it is rumored in
high circles that he recently declined a handsome offer from Charley

BRETT, MCRGAN L., "Tow," "Daddy,,' "Sue,,' Cleve-
land, Ohio. Clean Sleeve, A. B.
Born during the closing days of the Civil war, K'Daddy" passed
the best part of his youthful days as stake driver for a surveying
party in the swamps of Florida. He managed to escape the alligators,
but was caught embezzling his employer's funds, and was sent up to
the Point for four years at hard labor. uTow" is very painstaking in
the means he uses to preserve his health, and the serious thought he
has spent on this subject is probably responsible for his white head
and wrinkled brow. But all the same "Daddy's" chuckle is worth
going miles to hear, and with all his faults we love him still.

'lFor thou art long and lank and brown
As is the ribbed sea-sand."
Born and raised in a mesquite thicket in NVestern Texas, this
long-legged specimen with a lean and hungry look emigrated
from his native podunk full four years ago. Up to this time he had
dieted principally on fricaseed prairie dog and was truly wild and
woolly, but four years' constant association With men from such states
as Arizona and Nebraska has civilized him till now he stands without
hitching and is versed in all the arts of spooning. In fact, we think
we are safe in predicting that before many moons "Dick" willbeliving
in his own hymeneal shack somewhere out on the prairie dog hills
around old San Aritone.
BYRD, GEORGE R., "Oiseau," Wincluester, Va. A. B.,
"Cassie, I love thee, but never more be officer of mine."
Some assert that this is a new discovery of the Archmopterix
variety, others. that he belongs to the Vegetable Kingdom and
is only a common piece of wood. The latter theory is untenable as
investigators have actually heard him articulate. Generally sleepy
and resembling the mud-turtle in habits, he sometimes startles us by
sudden bursts of wit peculiarly his owng and he is always ready, nay
anxious, to enter any sort of contest involving physical strength or
skill. The interior workings of his mind are complicated, and it is
generally conceded that he could stand one in his class but for his
inordinate desire to break it off in the "P's."

"Bob's" one redeeming feature is the great amount of expression
in his plain but honest countenance. A member of the W. C.
T. U. and the most consistent "goat" in the Academy, this substantial
citizen believes that the chief aim of man in this life is to bone gallery.
Acting on this hypothesis, "Bob" never fails to have some stunt set
aside for the next L'platoon" that may wander by. Is a fiend at target
practice and is one of our two Expert Riflemen, but he can also 'Lshoot
his face" about as well as he can his gun.

The uKing" Was sent to us from St. Lulce's School Where he
acquired his blase manner, but this same manner has carried
his bluff through many a tight squeeze and has been his stock in trade.
His ambition is to be shut up in a room full of "Bull" With orders to
smoke his Way out, and he is in constant training to meet any such
contingency, should it occur, and carry it off with his customary sang
fraid. A prominent member of the F. S. G. Committee, he has been
knighted by the president of the same for his mathematical and schol-
arly demonstration of the fact that "it is easier to carry it than to
roll it." His fanatical devotion to his varlet, i'Spudge,', has long been
the Wonder and admiration of those households Where domestic har-
mony is a thing unknown. Long live the "King"!

L'Sue" declines to tell where he came from so We infer that the
bailiffs are after him. However, We do know that he became
acclimated at Lieut, Braden's before blowing into this summer resort.
He has ever been an ardent admirer of his wife, and, as harmony in
the family is a pretty good sign, he has been stamped as O. K. by a
consensus of opinion. He once aspired to be a sport but the lack of
puuctuality of a certain railroad soon brought his nose back to the
military grindstone, where it remains to this good day.

L'Dav's" dialect proclaims the fact that he sowed his wild oats
in the good old state of Georgia, but during a four years' ac-
quaintance with the Academic Board this native inflection of his has
been preserved only by the most careful hot-house culture. He still
has fond memories of the sunny days of plebe Math. when he, in com-
pany with the other D's attained the dignity of the third section where
for three whole weeks they basked in the sunshine of 'lHappy" Ham-
ilton's smile, and threw chalk when they should have pursued the
proverbially nimble tenths. Since general transfer, consequently, he
has been a most persistent "goat," and is always present when the

"Crup" landed here in 1901 but soon developed such a liking

'KCrup's" acceptance is his sincere attachment to the Cavalry, and to
the "galleries" that go therewith, in fact nothing makes him feel so
good as to have a chance to bring palpitaticn of the heart to a galaxy

This garrulous professional beauty hails from the tall pines of
Pennsylvania where he acquired his lumberly manner and pic-
turesque countenance among the coal fields. Although a little late
getting away, he struck his military gait at the end of 'yearling
camp when the Com. gladdened his heart with a pair of golden chev-
rons which he has hung on to ever since. His great ambition has been
to be the champion L'fusser," and when a fair one spotted him as the
class beauty in yearling year his cup of joy was full-until the rest of
the crowd heard about it and then the cup sprang a leak. He expects
to start a double establishment shortly after June, and the class ex-
tends its congratulations to the fair Captor but thinks she'l1 have to
hurry if she expects to be the better half of the manage.

With such a felonious cast of countenance, this descendant of
Daniel Boone may be taken as a typical Kentucky colonel.
Besides this facial qualification, 'lBeno" has acquired a taste for all
things drinkable, and possess a thirst of which he is justly proud. The
"Colonel's" sojourn at the Point has been one long struggle for social
recognition, and a wild scramble for the tenths. As for the former,
the less said the better, since he never even got an acting sergeantcyg
but with the tenths, he is always "a-gittin of 'em some." "Colonel"
is the originator of the now famous, K'We have met the enemy, and

"Phil" has many homely features, but not a single dishonest one.
An accomplished knocker, but a most miserable 'kfess" as a
spoonoid, he still manages to retain a high seat in the synagogue re-
served for the quilloids. This we hold is due not so much to his abil-
ity in manipulating the quill as it is to his screeching good sound-off
at drill, and his magnificient disregard for his clothes in executing the
orders of his superiors. To prove that he has never been a tenthoid,
uPhil "points with pride to the fact that he has never stood higher
than during the days of plebe Math. when he was well up in the seventh
section along with his alphabetical neighbors.

good-natured Dutchman that ever rolled along his genial way. His
first two years were uninterrupted series of ubumpingsf' but after

since plebe year uBessie" has been pacing, pigeon-toed by the way,
the straight and narrow path of military renown. ,He has, however,
a way of blushing when one points his finger at him that makes his
tormentor wonder if he hadn't better beg him to stop before he hurts
himself. Ordinarily he is very quiet and well-behaved but on one or
two June leaves and things he has let himself out and has been brought
home hilariously "full" on caramels and marshmallows.

In spite of a most expansive smile, MP. D.ls" misdemeanors are
notorious, for, though most of the time he is painfully sober,
even then he is always diligent in evil doing. On the football field,
however, his behavior is propriety itself. No matter how much they
may step on him, walk on his ears, or treat him as a door mat generally,
he always comes out of a scrimmage with a grin which announces to
all observers that somewhere under the pile he let the other fellow
have as good as he gave. "blot" believes that a man to be really a

he has made arrangements with the Anheuser-Busch Co. to enlarge

Like most heathen he is very fond of trinkets and during his sundry

doubtful though if a more persistent gatherer and dispenser of rumors

in collaboration with joe the policeman, rivals the most gossipy sewing

to imitate Napoleon is responsible for most of his misdeeds but this
opinion, besides being pretty hard on Nap, is probably untrue and
John's record is due more to the fact that he has left no stone unturned

while we must admit that occasionally his answers are correct, it can-
not be denied that "Yazoo', often shows a tendency to change the

This is IT-the summit toward which the Pampered Pets of the
Powers that Be continually do strive, the goal of every good
cadet's ambition. Many honors have been heaped upon his head,-
so many that it's a wonder his slender frame has withstood their bend-

permanent set. L'Skinny" will long remember that awful Hallowe'en
evening, when, just as he was making his most military salute and
reporting, UA Company all quiet, Sir," about a ton of brick dropped
on the roof of the First Div. "Skinny" collapsed on the spot and it
took the O. C. a good hour's work with the sponge to bring him around.

'g 'Our armies in Flanders swore terribly,' cried my Uncle Toby,
ibut never aught like this.' "
Spent his early life trying to out yell all the Indians west of the
Missouri, and we are inclined to believe he succeeded. Almost
any day he may be seen executing his quaint antics across the area
with someone in hot pursuit. 'iNuts" has defied all efforts at taming,
and, though he says his P. C. S. is a railroad magnate, we have our
doubts as to whether his administrative experience ever saw him higher
than an ofilice boy. While preparing at Denna's Academy. he was
known as the village bad-man, and was under bonds to keep the peace.
He was voted the noisiest man in the class by unanimous ballot.

K'Ned" is a peculiar mechanical mixture and one that it would be
well to watch. He' says he came here to be a soldier, but inci-
dentally forgot to add a spooning clause to this announcement, and,
as a result, has caused his classmates much anxiety by the frantic pace
he has set, especially since furlough. A "shark" at tennis and more
or less of a crack shot, "Punch" regularly pays his dues to the society
of quilloids, but this should not be cherished against him, as otherwise
he has proved himself to be an all-round good fellow who loves his

This Indian-fighting, gun-shooting, broncho-busting bad man is
chiefly noted for the variegation of his summer attire. His tales
of the woolly west are enough to curclle the blood of a fire-eater and
he can show you the marks of many a knife-fight on his otherwise
comely person. Now we do not Wish to give the impression that
"Zim" hasn't been a model of propriety during his sojourn at the

Many had resigned, some to accept more lucrative employment, a
common.reason given, some, because of nostalgia tinged with love
sickness, but many were forced to leave us by a hard-hearted
Academic Board. Many of those we lost were good fellows,
and we .missed them all. Yearling year's struggle with Math.and

21 year of self-congratulation that
L :lg: , , V A,, q h l 'S I M the goal is so near, and that ou,-
four years have not been spent in
vain. We feel, With a proper con-
ceit, that the classes have been
more firmly bound by a Corps spirit
since IQO6 took the leadership than
THE PAMPERED PETS OF THE NATION
at any other time during our four years, and the fostering of this
spirit is the charge We leave to the succeeding classes.
Our relations With the Tactical Department have been most
intimate. From the "dirt on the floor" to the Hcobwebs on the
ceiling," from the soles of our Hununiform shoes" tothe "dust on
the top of our dress-hats,". not one inch of our equipment, clothing
or habitation has been free from their inspection or their too freely
expressed criticism, as found in the delinquency list. They came, they
saw, they skinned. Where once their feet had trod, never more grew
a first grade. 'In their trail Was a long line of cons, busted leaves,

that cannot be cured, and therefore must be endured.
In the fevv pages of this history, justice cannot be done to our
Work in athletics, suffice it to say that in football, baseball and
fencing, vve have always been represented, and represented well.
Each indoor meet has found us contesting for first place, We hold
the tennis championship, and the first game of basketball ever
played at the Academy Was vvon by a IQO6 class team.
Our happiest moments at the Point can be summed up in the:
very contradictory statement that We are happiest When miles avvay.
There has been no year Without its little journey. Three times We
Went to Philadelphia to trail the Navy colors in the dust, a fourth
trip to Princeton added no less glory to our football heroes. A cold,
cold trip on the "good old ship Pegasus" brought us for a short visit

of thirty-tyvo minutes to New York, When, like "gay harbingers of

son Square Garden for the military tournament. A year later We
Were stranded in the Nlissouri mud of Camp Reilly, While acting as
the Fair's "star attraction." Furlough came with leaden shoes,
it Went with Winged feet. A hasty trip to the Metropolitan Art
Museum followed a three-days' Visit to Washington, Where We
attended the inauguration of Mr. Roosevelt. TWO days at Osca-
Wana and four at the seashore, in the neighborhood of Totten,
prepared us for the practice march that came later. Here Was shown
the embryonic genius of the Nation's future generals. Many a

harbor to Sandy Hook, and three days at Gettysburg but sped the
time till happy Graduation Day.
This has been our work, these our pleasures. The work
has been with us always, 'the pleasures few, short and -fleeting, but
the crown of our four years is at hand. To our friends, the lower
classes, we entrust the honor of the dear old Corps, which we have
tried to keep as bright as it has always been. Of you, we ask praise
for our efforts, mercy for our faults, and a tear for our memory as
the curtain falls on the last act of our Cadet life.

N the distant future, when little Runt Ardery is a brigadier
general, and John W. Gates Loughry is a senator from Indi-
ana, our grandchildren may unearth these few statistics and
be interested in them. "Nay?More," perhaps even now, John
Maul and lWick Daley may peruse the pages with thevanxious
faces of evil-doers before the skin-list-hoping against fate. At
any rate, here they are, an excuse for the innumerable questions
that First Classmen may remember answering last fall.
Our class Daddy is Punch Wildrick, who will be twenty-five
years and eleven months old at Graduation. The Baby is Minnie
Pelot, who Will have reached the exact age of twenty-one on that
Burleson is the tall man with his six feet two inches. Bartlett
is the shortest. It is related of him that for six months before he
took his entrance exams. he was afraid to have his top hair cutg and
then he just made the requisite five feet three.
Pot Lewis tips the scales at two hundred and fifteen pounds.
This makes him our heavy-weight. ln comparison with him,
Microbe Ardery with his paltry hundred and twelve is but a pigniy.
726 HOWITZER 81
Turning from brawn to brains, we find that the class has no
very pronounced Tenthoids. Apparently most of the men voted
for their wives. There were a few dissenters, however, and Finch
and Pelot finally won eight followers apiece. For some unaccount-
able reason, also, two men voted for Hetrick.
Cupid Minick is our champion Dis-boner, thirty-three men
having evidently seen him cleaning his room for Sunday morning
inspection. Seventeen others remind us of Susan Clagett and his
fondness for explanations. Maul also receives honorable mention.
Thirty-four men vote for Bob Campbell as the Gallery-boner,
par excellence. Sixteen believe that Williford's chief delight is to
have an audience.
Thirteen is an unlucky number for King Chaffee, for it gives
him the opprobrious title of P. S. Daleyls 'cSaturday Evening Post"
brings him a dozen followers. The remainder of the votes were
well scattered. Even Goat Schultz drew one.
Loughry's fondness for the races makes him our Sport with
thirty-six heelers. Donahue, too, is the real thing as thirty-two
Thirty-three believe Gillespie to be the B. J est specimen that
we have. P. D. lVfettler's lack of subservience has gladdened the
hearts of fifteen, and he takes second place.
Who is the woodenest man?" "Why do you ask,', says
Loughry, "what can be woodener than a Maul ?" Twenty-seven
others are of the same opinion. Fourteen prefer Fox, and twelve
82 Ee HOWITZER
Byrd, while eight have noticed the splinters falling off of Happy
Rockwell is All-round Athlete, with forty-two of us backing
him. Westover's performances in the Gym. make him the favorite
of twelve, however, and ten believe Torney cannot be beaten.
Bob Campbell has the Best Gpinion of Himself, according to
nineteen men. Fourteen believe that Robinson expects to be a
General Gfficer some day. Nine others have been noticing Willi-
Sixteen men have mistaken Thompson's Napoleonic bearing
for a Grouch. Seven object to Loughry's reserve. Gthers think
that Fox, Parker and Converse ought to go to a good show once in
awhile and liven up. Even John Maul is considered sour by a few.
Yet John wins the contest for Best Natured by the small vote of
thirteen. The discrepancy is easily explained. As one man puts
it, "He was the grouchiest Second Class year, the jolliest the rest
of the timef' Mettler and Abraham are the other choices for most
Hetrick was voted the Busiest by twenty-three, Morrow being
next with thirteen ballots, and Johnson third with eight.
For ability to face about and sound off the author's exact
words from the second line from the top on the left hand side of the
page to the fourth line from the bottom, Ardery received an over-
whelming majority of votes-forty-one in all. Eleven men, however,
insist that Minnie Pelot's strict application to study should give
him the title of Speck, and Robinson,s History section was solid
fZZze HOWITZER W 83
Daley's attempts to bugle on release from quarters won for
him the admiration of twenty men and the title of Spoonoid. Riley's
taking way with the ladies brought him ten followers, and seven
men who had been out on the Post and had heard of "lNflayhew,"
voted for Wainwright.
Thompson, Nl. H., is believed by sixteen to have the greatest
Aversion to Work. He had to hurry for first place here, though, as
Byrd, Loughry, Schwabe and Spurgin were all pressing him hard.
John Maul voted for himself.
Wainwright won in the contest for Quill, the choice of thirty
of his classmates. Wildrick was a poor second with twelve followers.
Olmstead wishes his vote for Morrow to count.
For B-aching, namely willingness to talk upon all occasions
before Reveille or after Taps, Wlilhelm and Waring tie with nineteen
votes apiece. A number of men voted for Clagett because of the
hole he has made in his First Sergeant's pile of explanation blanks.
Eleven men consider Dickman the Spooniest. Eight are duly
impressed by Wainwright in full dress and white. The remainder
of the votes are scattered. U
Minnie Pelot is the prettiest with twenty-one admirers. Eight
think Kate Donahue should be Class Beauty. The rest of the men
voted for their respective wives or for Jacob, R. H.
Fourteen ballots gave Handsome Harry MacMillan the right
to keep his title. 'Forney was his only near rival. Jacob again
received the scattering votes.
Westover is the Most Religious man in the class, fifty-three
men voting for him. Johnson was the choice of the remainder.
84 'Ee HOWITZER i
Tow Head Brett is probably pretty Blase. Gillespie is just as
bad, however, for they each get nine votes. Rockwell is next with
seven. The other candidates include all the bucks from Abraham
to Zimmerman. s
Last but not least is the Noisy Man. Who throws stones out
on the tin roof on Hallowe,en night? Who disturbs our slumbers
by rolling cannon balls down the stairs at midnight-and never
gets caught? Here you have the answer-"Warins." He tries to
make us believe that it is Zimmerman, but it is no use. The votes
are all for him. Yet, when we consider that both of these men live
in the 12th Division, can we wonder that the Tac inspects "FH
company so often 'after Taps? i

Our Favorite Mess Hall Dish is undoubtedly Hslumf' but
Happlelpie Withf' soft boiled eggs and "toast With cheese gravyl'
are all deservedly popular.
The Best Game at the Military Academy is Football, with
seventeen votes. Polo makes a good showing With fourteen.
Strange to say, Fulton gets eleven votes for Most Popular Horse.
Putnam and Lindsey secure five each.
Eight men voted fo.r cold Water for their Drink. No eight
other men could agree, so the main stay of the White Ribbon Band
Wins. It certainly Would have taken a masterly mixer to quench
the thirst of the rest of the class though. Four misguided youths,
rich in chimerical equipment fund, mentioned Pol Roger, '93.
But Mick Turner probably really expressed the thoughts of the
majority when he said "Katie Donahue,s White Seal."
Twelve earnest students prefer Roget's Thesaurus to all other
text books. C. Smith, "The Red B. S." and the Cambria all receive

Forty-one connoisseurs believe " Bulln to be the Best Tobacco.
Handsome Dan is its only rival.
The "Bull Hand-madev also Wins in the contest for Best
Skag With tWenty-one votes. It Was a dark horse and finished
strong When the "High Lives" split, Philip Morris and Pall Mall
being each essential to the happiness of hfteen men.
Some jokers mentioned the "Valley Farmw and "Le Maison
de Mon Peref' but the Zlffurray Hz'll is Our Hotel-a unanimous
choice. Good old Murray Hill! May it ever remain so.
Of all the Tacs now here, the Coldest Maxes are "The Linc"
and "Simple Simons," With tWenty-tWo followers each. We Want
six more from the same Lodge.
None Will call us their Favorite Class. The P's say that We
do not spend enough time With our books. The ladies claim that
We do not pay enough attention to the members of their sex. They
do not understand us. So We must e'en speak for ourselves. Let
us admit all of their charges-that We toil not neither do We spoon,
yet, perhaps We try to get the practical part of the Work so that We
can really do useful things at the proper time, and "When the
right little girl comes along" she Won't care about our lack of practice
With others. Moreover, When We graduate We Will go out a class
Which for four years has been singularly free from all internal
strife. We Will go out as brethren.

For a Whole year past, the little Podunks throughout the
United States had buzzed at intervals With the neWs that "the son
of one of our most prominent citizensf, Who had "graduated at the
very top of his class," Was going to West Point to "prepare for the
Engineers." Buoyed up by this Elysian idea, We decided that We
Would not hide our light under a bushel, and prayed to be delivered
from the sin of arrogance.
But When the voluble thunder of Windy Jim sounded from
the poop-deck, "You're a soldier noW, Mr. Hill," We discarded the
bushel idea and began looking around for a pint measure. Our
prayers, too, Were ansWered by a ministering spirit in the form of the
yearling corp, Who fulfilled his mission With such effect that there
Was no more successful arroganting done until the next June-for
When a yearling corp fastens on to a plebe, it has to thunder before
he loosens. And so, thus, poor luckless Sinbads, We started on our

- many days later that
we might have been
found, pointer in
hand, facing an in-
structor and telling
him in a dazed sort
of way that we were
required to prove
we really didn't
know exactly, what
A MOST ARDUOUS AND IMPORTANT DUTY
96 f2Ze HOWITZER
We Were to prove, and in general Were at a loss as to the proper
Way of going aboutithe proving of something We kneW We Were
not going to prove. Bitter experience taught us that ceaseless spec
and the alarm clock are essential accessories to the real tenthy
tenth. Thus many a morning ingrim December Qtemperature
O0 CD, We murmured droWsily the Words ofthe poet, "O, sleep, it is
a gentle' thingf' '
HoWever, the pernicious habit of "beating down the daWn,"
didn't cling to us so closely that We could not give it the sign of the
hot potato When We hied us to St. Louis. Dear old St. Louis!
A GOOD PLACE FOR A CAMP
What a glorious prologue to yearling camp! For, coming back,
We shed our plebe skins, plastered With lvlissouri, alloWed IQO4. to
graduate, IQO6 to go on furlough Qthis merely 'by suflaerancej, and
burst by main Forse into camp With a noise as of something falling.
Yearling camp Was a copy of all the yearling camps that have
been since the nucleus of protoplasm Was a plebe. The heathen in
his blindness boWs doWn to Wood and stone, but the yearling to the
Baals of Music, Spooning, Tennis, Hops, and a dozen others. This
DR. l4OEHLER'S SPRING TONIC GOOD FOR FURLOUGH MEN
is his Work. So for recreation he rides, drills, and eats pie at P. Nl. E.
One night in early summer he goes to bed, and the next morning it
is September, and he has started a line of boning that makes his
plebe course look like a saunter down Easy Street.
But little is remembered of our yearling year. It is a chaos of
Descrip, Conics, Calcule and Hwhat notf, as the Drawing De-
partment says. VVe obeyed implicitly throughout the year the old
command, "Give not sleep to thine eyes or slumber to thine eye-
lids." Yes, We Watched many moons become full and sober again-
only to tantalize our eagerness for that merry time Which the pro-
phets call Furlough. Although We did gallop through the year like
a cavalry plug on a practice march, still it took several decades of
umbras and penumbras for June to hnally come. Second relief!
98 fIZe HOWITZER
Merry, maddening, soul-stirring June! Thirteen days of ninety-
two hours each and then-oblivion! Whenever any want-to-be-nice
sort of fellow would so far forget himself as to mention West Point
during the summer, we would adjust our monocleiand say, "West
Point? Rully, d'y' know I think I've heard that name somewhere,
but I cahn't place it. Is that the place where- ?" and that gener-
ally silenced him.
- AUGUST 28, I905
' Only a few days of unusual brilliance-then the stars went
out. Great shovels of mud! This is the Murray Hill again. Ask
a yearling, "What is August 23 FH he will smile cynically and want
to know what more than usually ghastly thing you are talking
about. Ask a second-classman, he will smile reminiscently and
want to know-nothing, for he knows.

. I. THE TRYSTING PLACE
At present We are engaged in getting physical conceptions.
Give us time and the proper data, and We can get a physical concep-
tion of anything from a momental ellipsoid to the General Belknap.
As far as the former is concerned, We have found that it resembles
nothing so much as an Edam cheese. We Draw lines-draw
lines-draw lines! Draw something-draw something! Work-
Workl Ad Z-7175712-Z'ZfL77Z. Still, in the dim, dim distance, We
think We see a small knot-hole about the size of a molecule, which
lets in a ray of light, as yet opaque-a light called Graduation-

,X ATERIAL for a class history is as plentiful as the L.Ps.
I : at a yearling hop, so plentiful, indeed, that the diffi-
culty of being brief might aptly be compared to the
5 I impossibility of recounting the good deeds of a tac.
As plebes' of the age of Pechols, the class of 1908
did even more than was expected of it. With four men in the Navy
game, first honors in the indoor meet, not to speak of our baseball
talent, our plebe year was certainly one to be proud of.
It was on the fourteenth day of June, 1905, that the waters of
Hades solidified and the class of 1908, or rather that portion of it
spared by the furies of the Math Department, Was led out of bon-
dage and into the beautiful valley of yearling camp!
Yearling camp! Yearlings say there was nothing like it-so
do the plebes. Even the infant Napoleons-for should I say Na-
poleonic infants Fj-enjoyed themselves, and many were the vic-
tories won by these masters of the endorsing art, and many were
the tours and cons awarded in commemoration thereof. Here it
Was also that our "Rip Van Winklel' came to grief, and here also
two of our number trespassed on the sacred dignity of plebedom
and suffered the punishment that was "swift and suref'
Our military routine was as thorough as it was strenuous.
As usual, reveille was sounded shortly after taps. Breakfast was
followed by a most interesting infantry drill in the theory of
fZZe HOWITZER- 105
halting at command or "as soon thereafter as practicablef'
Lindsay, indicating the step, always added to the military dignity
of these formations.
As a place of torture the riding hall was in a class by itself.
There it was that Methuse with his deep soprano voice brought
trouble and sorrows to the heart of the comfortable yearling by
that cruel cry, "Lean back! Lean back!"
At West Point, everything that is taught is taught from the
PRIDE GOETH BEFORE DESTRUCTJON
bottom up, and this was particularly true of instruction at the target
range. In the capacity of a scorer the yearling Was accustomed as
far as possible to the discharge of a gun. Then after having learned
to control his emotions at seeing a tac call a 5 and make a miss, he
was sent to the butts-there to learn the dangers of being under fire.
Towards the end of camp he shot his marksman score. Some
achieved greatness, others escaped reproach, while the least com-
mendable scores were duly posted on the skin list.

With petroleum, the L. P. and the mosquito Were as numerous as
ever-and joss sticks Were quite the fad. On concert nights these
diminutive torches flickering here and there over the Parade, indi-

Without doubt the most notable event of our camp Was the
march of the goo-officially the "Practice March?
A strange fact noted Was that the tribes through Whose country
We passed Were equally friendly to either side.
Our methods of fighting Were most humane. The feminine
population Was first pacified by offerings of bell buttons, hearts
and other trinkets. This accomplished, our Work Was practically

our proficiency in the 'domestic sciences-cooking, eating, and spoon-

the day. It gvvas about this time that We learned that Christmas
was the last stopping place on the long journey to furlough. A few
of our number left us here to take a later traing. still another group
of misguided individuals Were denied even this privilege. The rest
are still travelling. Occasionally the victim of a mess-hall rarebit
reaches his destination shortly after taps, only to be brought back
again with a thud, a shiver and an improper 'expression at reveille.
But We are all patient, and When that joyous "tacless" season of
furlough really comes it will find us none the Worse for our two
years suffering, and Well prepared and ever ready to drink to the
honor and glory of West Point and the Class of 1908.

HE Class of IQOQ came into existence on June 15, IQO5,
When most of its members reported at the Administra-
tion Building. Guess We all remember that beautiful
morning. Everything Was so quiet and peaceful-
' P until We passed through the east sally-port. We Were
marching along in column of tWos, under the guidance of an orderly,
observing the barracks which were to be our homes for four years-
more or less-When We noticed a couple of yearling corps bearing
down upon us. One of them said to the orderly, "Let me have
them." He got us all right. That Was the opening gun, guess they
Won't cease firing till June I2, IQO6. They took a great deal of
interest in us right from the start, especially With regard to our set-up.
After numerous trips to the Cadet store, double timing both
vvays, up and down three flights of stairs in- our oWn or some other
division, We finally got enough furniture and clothes to set up house-
keeping4three in a room. We thought We Were West Pointers
sure When We got into cadet gray, even if it Was only gray shirts
and gym trousers, but When We found that We had to tack on a "Sir"
to every sentence, and throw in a few for good measure, and even
had to ask permission to 'ask ,a question, We finally came to believe
that We Were not such an important part of the Corps after all.
JUNE 15, 1905
' Dinner on the 15th vvas the first meal at West Point for most
of us, and after Working pretty hard since reporting in the morning,
Wenaturally looked forward to it With much pleasure. The first
thing that most of us did Was to take a good look at the place Where
We Were going to eat for the next four or live years. We didn't get
much of a look, though, as several upper classmen informed each of
us that our Held of observation Would be confined to the collar of
the man in front. When We got to our seats, and the details for
gunner, and for milk and tea corporals were announced, We learned
What "pred", meant, and Were given for P. C. S's the most inspiring
and interesting of occupations. We soon learned to keep our eyes
on the table except When the O. C. was around.
'Ee HOWITZER 115
After a week 'or so devoted to facings and side-steppings, we
drew our rifles. We thought we were soldiers surely nowg but the
charm soon wore off when we were marched out daily, equipped
with cosmic oil, and instructed in the noble art of gun-cleaning.
Besides numberless drills of every sort and kind, we were in-
structed daily in the scientific use of the b-acheg and given lectures
quite as often on the mysteries of the Blue Book and the Articles
of War. It added greatly to our peace of mind to learn that we could
be shot or otherwise more severely punished for every offense from
smoking a skag to playing poker after taps.
On the Fourth of July we listened to a very inspiring oration,
and thought what a line thing it was to be able to drag in our chins
in defense of the Nation. But we had little time to runiinate over
this, for two days later we packed our duds, turned our backs on
beast barracks, and marched boldly over to the unknown terrors
of plebe camp.
116 -me HOWITZERN
We Were told that We Would have much more time to ourselves
in camp-all the afternoons and evenings,-so most of us Were
glad to go, although some of us had a lurking suspicion that our
oflicial privileges differed greatly from our unofficial. In barracks
We had certain prescribed hours for everything, even gun-cleaning,

Then came that memorable hve-days' hike known as the

intended to give practice to the football squad or to the unfortunate

with rocks sustained a stinging defeat. When we stopped at Fish-
kill Village on Sunday, we madethe acquaintance of all the charming
young ladies in the town. QAbsences at taps were frequent about
this time.j It was while we were here that the Dutch Reformed
Church sent an invitation to the Corps to attend evening services,
and Captain Stewart gave orders that fifteen men be detailed from
D Co. to accept the invitation. In accordance with instructions
from the First Sergeant, fifteen plebes were seen solemnly filing
into the church that night. They constituted about 99.5 per cent
of the Corps' representation. After five days of these forced marches,

many summer evenings, and established ourselves in barracks once

shewn that Mr. Ducrot, B. approaches zero as a limit, and a
Fourth Class Christmas leave begins to loom up large and strong.
At the general transfer, it rather surprised us when the man
who had been "through definite integrals and infinitesimal analysis"
hit the goats, while he who had "had some solid geometry" came
out in the Hrst section. But it is the unexpected that always happens,
and no man can tell what the morrow will bring forth. We feel
assured, though, that the future holds nothing but glory for the
Class of loo-9.

HE Army Athletic Association was formed in IQOI for the purpose
of encouraging athletics at the Military Academy. Its influence has
spread throughout the service in a remarkable manner. This is
indicated in no better Way than by the fact that it receives contributions for
its support from members in all parts of the World including Alaska and
South Africa. ,
The amount contributed during the past season was over ,5gI3,000.
This money is used in the support of tennis, baseball, hockey, basketball,
indoor and outdoor meets, and the encouraging of athletics in general at the
An annual report is published by the Association and sent to all mem-
bers. Th-i's report is a valuable history of athletics at the Nlilitary Academy
during the season which it records.
By means of this report and various circulars issued during the year, the
members of the Association are kept in close touch with athletic affairs at

AST year's football season was notfone of great probabilities when we
entered upon it in September. The team had lost heavily in good
players and found no hope of filling their positions from the new
class. Hammond, Graves, Tipton, Seagraves, Prince, and Doe were gone.
We were fortunate in securing Graves' return as a coach. He arrived early
in September and turned out the material to look it over. About ninety
men appeared on the field, attracted by the possibility of a position on the
team which had been so badly depleted. A week or two of fundamentals
wore off the glamour of it, and the squad dwindled tolabout fifty men.
Boyers arrived to take charge of the season's Work, and Daly came to
help him. The squad was organized and put into the harness, the traces of
which were not to slacken till the Navy was beaten.
- The superior players soon developed. Wilhelm took Hammondls place
at left end. Erwin succeeded Doe at left tackle. Abraham filled the place
left vacant by Tipton, Christy took Seagrave,s place, and held it without a
single substitute the whole season. Beavers succeeded Prince at left half.
A few days of ragged practice and the team lined up against Tufts to
try itself. It won. The team displayed some of the old Army form. An-
other Week's practice and Colgate was defeated by the score of I8 to 6. They
could not stop our line plunges, and the wide end runs became excellent
We decided to put in a week of the hardest practice to get ready to meet
Harvard and,Yale. Nobody suspected the Virginia game of being as much
as a scrub game. The day before the game we had a grinding line-up.
Erwin, Weeks, and Beavers were put on the injured list, Wilhelm was already
hurt, Abraham was put in bad condition. Virginia brought a thoroughly-
'Jae HOWITZER 125
conditioned team of old and experienced players who played their best game.
West Point played in a listless, devil-may-care sort of a way, and showed the
result of the Week,s overwork. We were whipped I6 to 6. A
The Army supporters, except the corps, began to desert. The calamity
howlers started their tuneful wail. The Harvard game Was only a Week OH:
and our pessimists foresaw only the squelching of the Army. They forgot
that it,s a poor fighter who doesn't learn a little from every lickin', and the
Army has always been good in a
Harvard tried the West Point
line Where V. P. I. had found
openings, but no openings were
there. She took three tries at
nearly all her hrst downs, but
always stopped making first downs
within a safe distance from the
army goal. We tried two field
goals, but missed them both.
Once Beavers broke and started
down the Held, hurdled Starr, but
with his stride thus broken, was
caught from behind and dropped
on Harvard's 25-yard line. Har-
vard scored, on an Army fumble.
Parker punted to'Hill near our
goal line, the kick was partly
blocked and bounded along the
ground. Hill missed it, Garey
missed, and a Havard man fell on
it behind our goal line for a touch-
down. Harvad 6, West Point o. A' G' GMESPIE' CAPTAIN
Fair Harvard, aided by fair fortune, had Won the day.
Yale, fearful of a repetition of last year's defeat, put on extra steam.
She started in savagely, but for most of the first half we kept her guessing.
Our offense tore through the strongholds of her line, first downs following
thirds and seconds for 60 yards till we landed the ball on her three-yard
line. Then an misplay lost the ball. The tables turned. We fumbled again
and Yale scored. The next half she scored two touchdowns and a safety.
We were fairly beaten by the decisive score of 20 to O.
We had another lickin' from which to learn something, but we didn't
learn it. The Carlisle Indians were met the succeeding Saturday and won
on another fumble, an Indian end
running forty yards down the open
Held. In this game, however, we
showed a great improvement over the
contest with Yale. We drove through
the Indian line from center field to
their goal with an offense that was irre-
sistible. Beavers failed to kick goal
from the touchdown by less than an
inch. Doctor McCracken, seeing that
i the post over which the ball sailed,
was bent outward refused to give us
the necessary point to tie the score.
Once during the game Beavers broke
loose and ran forty-five yards and put
the ball behind the Indian goal posts,
but a trusty brave had picked up his
trail and persuaded the referee that it
iwent out of bounds almost an inch
at the thirty-live yard line. We could
not reach the Indian goal again. The
score was 6 to 5.
Nevertheless, we were coming out
T' Y of our slump. Vermont could not
A G' M' MORROW' MANAGER play us, and We spent the next two
weeks, getting in 'shape for the Navy. Trinity was defeated on November
18, 34 to O. They could not break through our strong defense, and our
offense carried the ball wherever Johnson wished it to go.
Then Syracuse came the next Saturday with her great crowd of rooters
filling the grandstanid with yellow flags. They cheered and sang to their
team enthusiastically through every stage of the game, but their confidence
7Ze HOWITZER 127
could not put power into their team to withstand the carefully but swiftly
executed plays of the now conditioned Army. The score of the game was
I7 to O in our favor, but the score in songs and yells and sportsmanlike con-
duct should stand-Syracuse 3.0, West Point 3.0.
The team was now beginning to show the result of the year's training
and coaching. Owlsley, Bloomer and Sanford came down from Yale and
offered a few suggestions, but they would not change a single man,s playing.
They were more confident by far than the Army was of a victory over the
Navy. Friday afternoon we had our final practice on the frozen plain, and
in the evening the team and its substitutes marched to the train amid the
greatest ovation of cheers and songs the corps had ever given. If anything
THE YALE GAME '
in Academy life can rouse the spirit of a man's devotion to the corps and
make him play to win, it is to go through the east sally-port with a Navy
game to be played on the morrow and hear the corps roaring its enthusiasm
and confidence in his ear.
The detailed account of the Navy game is given elsewhere, but we must
notice here that when the team left it was playing in the old Army form, the
form in which our system of training and coaching invariably puts our team
when the great test of its powers arrives. It is our aim to demonstrate each
year the superiority of the spirit of our institution over that at Annapolis,
even if the succession of victories becomes monotonous and uninteresting
to those who watch.
128 He HOWITZER
The Navy game ended at dark, December 2, and with it the longest
season we have ever played, perhaps, too, at times the most up-hill and dis-
couraging. Always when our chance came to win We lost it by a little Huke
or fumble. Sometimes a referee, sometimes a player took away the advantage.
The spectators told us by their numbers, however, that the play was good
to watch. They crowded the grandstand always, and the trees and corners
of buildings were Hlled with men and boys eager to get a glimpse ofthe game.
We cannot write in this record the names of all those to Whom credit
is due for our success. If we should begin to present bouquets we should
ruin a Hower garden. The team owes much to Lieutenants Boyers, Daly,
Graves, and Clarke, for their efforts in coaching our team after successive
defeats, to play such a game as they played at Princeton, much to Captain
Pierce for a well-managed season, and to Owlsley, Bloomer, and Sanford
for their assistance when we needed it most. Every member of the squad
shakes Temple's hand and gives him heartiest good wishes. No other stood
by the team so continuously, both financially and morally. No other so
assiduously labored that we might have a conditioned team in our supreme
To all our host of supporters we extend our greatest thanks, telling
them that our team against such misfortunes as they know and appreciate,
played the better for their cheering and kindliness. For those who played,
any remark that we can make here will seem trivial and inadequate compared
with the great compliment the corps and the Army have already paid them.
We can only say, "Fellows, we congratulate youf' You have earned nobly
and well all we can give of our esteem and gratitude.

HE Army-Navy game was played at Princeton this year under con-
ditions quite diiferent from those we have enjoyed during
the last few years at Philadelphia. We played a Navy team which
had been victorious all the year and which was expected to win by every
football enthusiast. 'We played on a field slippery with mud and with the
wind blowing at times a perfect gale between the goal posts. We played
with officials who inflicted the most disheartening penalties on our team, and
these for offenses which only a hair-splitting judge would call oifensesg
whereas many very evident infractions of the rules by the Navy team went
But we played with the corps behind us, their every vocal chord, their
every simoleon. We played the Army game through and through as we had
learned it and knew it, and because the Navy succeeded in scoring in the
semi-darkness, we cannot admit that the Army team has been equaled in
We give below an account of the game by Captain Pierce, to which he
has appended several comments on the playing from disinterested sources.
The championship football contest with the Navy at Princeton Field on December
ld, was marred by poor train service. This was largely due to the sidetracking of
trains to permit clear track for certain specials. On account of the delay the game
was not called until 2.35, and the second half was partly played in semi-darkness.
The gathering Was a most distinguished one, including the President of the
United States, members of his cabinet, and foreign ambassadors. The Princeton
authorities extended every hospitality possible and deserve our best thanks for their
eflicient efforts in our behalf. The day was threatening but ended with little rain.
The contest produced many surprises. The midshipmen, on account of their
Hne record during the season and the fact that they outweighed the cadets, were
generally picked as the probable victors. Many tales came to us of their heavy yet
He HOWITZER 133
fleet backheld, their -powerful, aggressive line, the quickness of their play, and the
wonders accomplished by a large and brilliant staff of coaches, both graduate and
foreign. Knowing that our team was in fine physical condition and had improved in
the last two Weeks at least fifty per cent in both offense and defense, still the reports
from Annapolis were so rosy-hued that it was thought we would be fortunate to tie
But from the opening kick our decided superiority 'was manifest, and the result
seemed merely a matter of the size of the score. With a favoring Wind, a kicking
game was inaugurated that gained us yards at every exchange. The Navy's attack
was not strong enough for them to carry the ball, and our players took every advan-
tage of this fact. One of the best features of this part of the game was a ,line punt
of Torney's which crossed the side line three yards from the Navy's goal. ln trying
to rush out from this position the Navy barely missed having a safety scored against
them, for the man with the ball was thrown back a yard by our vigorous defense.
Three times the cadets approached the midshipmen's goal only to be called back on
penalties, but they would not be denied, and finally securing the ball on the Navy's
4.8-yard line carried it over by a series of magnihcent rushes that averaged 2.7 yards
The first half ended with a trial for Held goal from placement on the Navy's
22-yard line Where the ball had been carried from our 7-yard line since the second
kick-olf. ln one of these magnificent assaults Christy broke through the
Navy line and was only brought down by the quarter-back after a run of 3Q yards.
If there had' been five more minutes to play We would have had another touchdown
in all probability.
ln the second half the Navy Was favored by the high wind as she was in the latter
part of the hrst half. The ball was kept Well in the middle of the field by the cadets
Whose defense was proof against Navy assaults until the very end. The Navy kicked
from their 50-yard line and the ball Went in touch beyond our goal line. But one of
our players tripped a midshipman on the 40-yard line and the ball was called back,
given to our opponents with an additional penalty of I5 yards. From the 20-
yard line the Navy succeeded in getting the ball over. Personally, I am of the opinion
they could not have done this except for the darkness which prevented the cadets
from locating the ball. The game was lost to us by this unfortunate incident, but the
superiority in playing ability of our team was in evidence during this entire contest.
THE NEW YORK SUN
The Army-Navy game did not begin until 2.35 olclock, and at ten minutes to five it was called to a
halt with nearly ten minutes left to play.
Yet in spite of the delays the enthusiasm never flagged. Not a player was seriously hurt, although
time and again members of both elevens were stretched out on the frosty turf with bellows to mend. The
134 Re HOWITZER
battle raged fiercely at all periods, however, and both sides displayed wonderful grit and stamina. The
Navy stood a terrific gruelling in the first half, resorting to the punting game on numerous occasions in
order to save strength, so that when the second half arrived the middies seemed to last better than their
The Army's attack was much more cleverly concentrated than the Navyis, but it lacked the required
speed. In defence West Point was invincible during the first period, but toward the close, after the Navy
had been beaten off repeatedly, the soldiers weakened under the tremendous strain and lost the advan-
tage they had gained in the early stages.
The teams were about evenly matched in weight, and before the game a victory for the Navy was
generally conceded, but from the first kick-ofi the play of the West Point team was a genuine surprise.
is Pls GF als Pk
While the rivalry was intense the utmost good fellowship prevailed, and when the battle was over
the Army and Navy exchanged congratulations in the heartiest manner.
There were several star plays and many blunders, all of which kept the excitement at white heat,
even though more than an hour was wasted in patching up bruises.
For West Point Torney did some magnificent rushing, but his punting was weak to that of Capt.
Howard of the Navy. Torney made the touchdown for the Army, and Rockwell, the left end, kicked
Weeks was a tower of strength in the Army's formation behind the lines, and his bull-like plunges
through the center stood out in bold relief. Hill and Smith were also conspicuous in many of the Army's
advances, which generally were the result of a wing shift, coupled with a play which consisted of three
separate attacks following the giving of one signal.
Christy made the longest run of the game, a dash of thirty-five yards through the Navy's left flank
which would have resulted in a touchdown had not a superb tackle by Decker shut him off from a clear
field. Gillespie, the Army's captain, covered himself with glory by many hard tackles in spite of the fact
that he received a shaking up repeatedly and had to take time to recover.
NAvv's DEFENCE ERACES
The Navy's defence was torn to pieces again and again, only to brace at a critical point, but the
middies displayed wonderful power of recuperation, there being only one substitution in the rush line.
Howard and Woodworth got down the Held like the wind on the kicks, showing a trifle more skill per-
haps than the Army ends.
It was about a standoff between Grady and Erwin, the tackles, but Mettler had a shade over Piersol.
The Army battered the Navy's center with considerable success, Causey finally retiring in favor of Rees.
THE PHILADELPHIA ENQUIRER
The annual game between the Army and the Navy played at Princeton today ended in a tie with
the score 6 to 6. The Army scored first and in the second half the Navy pushed the ball over the Army's
goal line after making repeated efforts. Then the game was called ofi, for darkness was settling down
on Osborn Field with the Navy in possession of the ball on their own z6-yard line.
OFFICIALS SHOWED UP PooR1.Y
The Army outplaying the Navy, the loss of the game to the cadets was due to the infliction of pen-
alties. The Army suffered very much at the hands of the officials who juggled the game repeatedly,

usually being undecided what they should do in cases that arose which required a knowledge of the game
and rules and the use of intelligent judgment to decide.

if anything, to the Army.
Entering the contest the second choice, the soldiers played all around the middies for three-quarters
ofthe game, and it was only late in the second half that the Annapolis team was luckily enabled to tie
This is as near to a victory as the Navy has come in its contests with the Army for several years.
There was a sharp reaction from the critical suspense of the moments preceding this climax, which found
vent in the wildest evidences of exultation on the part of the middies and their friends.
West Point, with the loyalty to fair sport and to the glory of both arms of the service which it has
ever displayed, instantly joined in the tribute of acclamation to the Navy players, alternately cheering
them and their own team. The Annapolis Band swung up before the Navy seats, making the air throb
with gallant and patriotic music. V 7
Meanwhile the VVest Point Band, on the other side of the field, headed a procession of the cadets
who marched, with Hags of gray and gold madly agitated above their heads, around the outer edge until
they came to the station of the middies. There they broke forth into vociferous cheers,which the middies
returned with emulative vigor. The middies in a short time had formed their own column and paraded
in like manner, pausing in the march to pay a tribute to the Army.

HE spirit of the baseball season, as Well as that of the foot-
ball and fencing seasons, is, to borrow the expression of
one often scored on: "What profiteth it the Army if she
take all other scalps and lose her own to the Navy F" Measured by
the usual standard, viz., the result of our game With the Navy, the
baseball season of IQO5 Was not
a success. But some small con-
solation may be had by remem-
bering that our team possessed
strength which it failed to dis-
play against the Middies. The
fact that our men, Who Were
able ten days before the Army-
Navy game, to hold the Yale
team of IQO5 down to a I to 2
score, should go down in defeat
before the Navy, is accounted
for only by the comedy of errors
that characterized our fourth
annual game With the Middies.
l Groninger and Hanlon, While
i not appearing to be "up in the
air," seemed to take turns at
C. K. ROCKWELL, CAPTAIN
me HOWITZER 139
throwing the ball away at a critical
point of the game, thereby letting
in runs that we found ourselves
unable to match. Groningerls
playing, especially, was much be-
low his ususal style. The steady,
persistent work of Lane in the box
was largely responsible for the way
in which the team held together
throughout a discouraging game.
A record of live victories and
seven defeats was not a sullicient
reward for the hard work of Lieuts.
Kremer, Hackett and Abbott as
coaches. Winston as captain of the
team was unusually energetic. It
must be remembered, however, that
the schedule was not arranged with
a View to winning all the games.
Perhaps' the games with Columbia
and Lafayette are the only ones we
lost which We might reasonably R. N. CAMPBELL, MANAGER
have been expected to win, leaving T
out of consideration, of course, the game with the Navy. The
game with Colgate was prevented by rain.
The schedule for the IQO6 season promises to be even more
difficult than the IQO5 schedule, but, with only two players, to re-
place, and some promising material in the fourth class, the team,
which Rockwell is to captain, should be a winning one.
The proposition of coaches has not been definitely settled upon
but it is probable that there will be one professional coach and two
Capt. Lytle Brown, Corps of Engineers, has been elected
baseball representative to replace Captain Kromer.

' 22, as T
HIS year the Middies journeyed to West Point to play the annual
baseball game-and returned home victorious by a score of 9 to 5.
Numerous errors in the first two innings allowed the Navy to get a
lead that We were unable to overcome. It was not, however, until the seventh
that our friends could score again, Laneas wild throw to first then starting the
run-getting. Gut of justice to Lane it must be said that he made full and
complete reparation for an error which was overshadowed by graver ones.
His work in the box became the consoling feature of the game for the Army.
There was no time of the game that Winston's team admitted defeat.
The "hand-writing on the wall', meant nothing to them till the game was
called. The rally in the ninth, which resulted in three scores, came as a
response to the vociferous cheers of the Army adherents. With our last op-
portunity to score, Needham was hit safely three times, and these, with the
assistance of a base on balls, brought three men across the rubber, giving us
our Hnal score.
With the exception of a strong breeze during the early part of the
game the day was an ideal one. Fully five thousand people saw the game,
the large grand stand that had been erected being full to overflowing.
The details of the game follow:
The Army went to the bat first and Rockwell walked, getting out at
second. Winston followed with a hit, stealing second and scoring the first
run on Groninger's hit. Groninger got out at second and Gardiner flied to
The Navy replied with three runs in their first time at bat, the errors of
Groninger and Hanlon being responsible for at least two of them. Gill
faced Lane and promptly made a hit, stealing second and making third, as
Spofford went out at first. Goldthwaite followed with a hit, scoring Gill.
iZZe HOWITZER 143
Goldthwaite succeeded in getting to second, and Groninger's juggling of
McWh0rter's grounder allowed Goldthwaite to get to third. Lane hit Theo-
bald, thus filling the bags. Hanlon's wild throw then let Goldthwaite and
McWhorter score. In the second inning Groninger again assisted the Navy
by an error. After Symington had gone out at first, Lane hit Needham, who
got to second on Gill's hit. It was here that Groninger's error allowed
Spofford to make first, which placed Gill on second and Needham on third.
Goldthwaite flied to Rockwell, Needham scoring on the throw in. Gill and
Spofford also scored this inning. The Army scored once in the third and
not again till the ninth, which started with Wagner hitting safely and stealing
second. Hanlon flied to SpoH7ord and Lane walked. With a man on first
and one on second, Rockwell stepped up and sent out a three-bagger, sending
in the two before him and making home on WinstoII's hit. This was the end
of our scoring. The score stood Navy 9, Army 5.

The records made by the Army teams have been unequaled
in the history of collegefencing. From our first appearance on the
mat at the New York Athletic Club in IQO2 until last year, our
teams have not only been victorious over the other college teams
but have carried oPf the individual honors as well.
Last year we surrendered our laurels to the Navy and took
second place. The credit for whatever success we received belongs
entirely to Captian Koehler, who not only devoted his .whole time
and energy to the perfection of the team, but infused in it the bull-
dog determination it displayed in wresting second place in the face
of almost certain defeat. M. Vauthier and Lieut. Glade most ably
assisted Captain Koehler in his efforts. M. Vauthier is now per-
manently connected with the Academy and can devote much more
of his time to the perfection of this year's team.-
Too much cannot be said of the sacrifice made by the men on
the fencing squad. Turned out in November, they give up every
afternoon from then until the middle of March in constant practice
for the winter contest and the Intercollegiate. Unlike other sports,
there is no gallery to play to, nothing to relieve the monotony of
"lunge, parry and riposte." lt is one continuous drill and those men
He HOWITZER- 145
Who thus unselfislily Work for the success of the Army deserve to
the fullest measure the support of the Corps.
It is the ambition of this year's team to regain the championship
and bring back to the Corps the "trophy" which it has kept so
long. If such ambition be accomplished, then let it be the aim of
our future teams to jealously guard it and never allow it to stand
again " in alien balls, crowning an alien victory."

RUMOR that We Were going to have a dual outdoor meet
with the Navy on the same day We played the baseball
game, gained much credence along in lVla.rch and per-
a goodly crowd. of contestants to prepare for the various
events. Though the rumor never became a reality, it put a lot of
ginger into the contests on the field day.
We had a fair day, a dry plain, and a large crowd, all of Which
are incentives to snappy Work. The eternal feminine Was Well
represented, and, Whether her hero came over the tape first or goat,
he got her Wave of kerchief and her cheer.
The finish of the quarter-mile Was perhaps the most thrilling
event of the meet. Upham was leading in the final sprint and Won.
But the Way Hickam ate up the ground behind him brought afstorm
of applause from the track side and sent a thrill of uneasiness into
IQO5,S little cheering section. Guthrie, ,O5, broke Dovvd's, '04,
record for the half-mile in a brilliant finish. Hammond, S., ran
the IOO in IO Hat again, and Beavers equalled McNally's record in
the hurdles. ,

record of '96 of Winning four successive banners. They can justly

HE game of polo, as it is played at West Point, is so dis-
tinctively a first-class privilege that it does not occupy the
prominent place among our more popular games and sports
that its relative position as a sport, and its relative value in the devel-
opment of athletics, entitles it to hold. The purpose of the game
is not to work up a championship team to win a match game, but
to develop that intelligent and devoted interest in the horse which
is the "sine qua non', of an officer in the mounted service. With
this purpose in view, there has been made a heavy investment
fthe only one the government makes officially for a sportj in ponies
and grounds, and the returns show that it has been warranted.
This year has shown an encouraging increase of interest at
the Academy. The squad was larger in proportion to the size of
the class than any preceding year, and it has without exception,
displayed an enthusiastic interest in the game, Which was sustained
throughout the year, undiminished by the various drawbacks of
rain and storm and afternoon target practice on the Hats.
A match game, played in November, between two cadet teams,
and another game between a cadet team, chosen by the squad, and a
team of oHicers, showed very clearly the result of the season's play.
The games were fast, the ponies were handled well, and the work

with the ball Was remarkably accurate. The officers team Was de-
feated by a larger score than the IQO5 team made against them last
June, While in their oWn judgment the oflicers played a far better
game in November than 'they did in June.
The credit for these results belongs very largely to Captain
lVlcDonald and to Captain lllarshall. Not only did their interest
in the game and the time and attention they devoted to it make such
progress possible, but their unfailing kindness made the practice a
pleasure as Well, to every member of the squad.
Six teams were organized from the squad, and this was found
to facilitate the schedule of play and to insure to everyone a chance
to get in the game. The teams, not having been arranged according
to merit, developed in the practice a bracing spirit of rivalry. They

r- ENNIS, last summer, was asnpopular
as ever. The courts were in excel-
lentzcondition and were always in
use. The bench under the elm tree was Filled
atifall hours ofzthe afternoon by enthusiasts
waiting for next, and the green banks of Exe-
cution Hollow accommodated dozens who
were-waiting, just waiting. Tennis racquets
are good things to keep the green from white
skirts, don't you know? J
We ought to have three times as many courts to accommodate
the oflicers and cadets who desire to play. There were dozens of
men who wanted to play last summer but couldn't run fast enough
after dinner to get a place. ln spite of the limited practice and the
interference of practice marches and little journeys, we had a tour-
nament. lt was held in August. Twenty men entered in the
singles, but no doubles were played. Rockwell, C. K., IQO6, won
the championship. V

AST year's hockey-season began on Dec. 31, IQO4, on the
soft ice of Lusk Reservoir With a victory for the Army team.
It was finished on March I, 1905, Withfanother victory.
Plenty of ice and lots of Work with brooms and snfow shovels kept
the team constantly in condition. Eight games Were played in all,
and only one of them was a defeat.
In View of the fact that hockey is only ,two years Qld at the
Academy, the records of our past tvvoqteamsi presage a brilliant
future for it among our sports. A reputation., once secured,,Will
insure a better choice of contestants and ce'rtainly,mQre popularity
for the young game. ' ig I
Such interest Was taken last' year in theiteam, that the Quarter-
master Department constructed a rink on the grass plain, and most
of the seasonis games Were 'played on it. This year an excellent
rink has already been built.
Quite an ambitious schedule has been prepared by the manage-
ment, and the advent of ice is awaited very eagerly in order to get
the team at Work. '

QU never can tell by appearances. The cadet who passed
you on the plain with a golf stick and a ball, may play
golf for all you know, but its dollars to doughnuts that you
will find him later on Flirtation, using the golf bag as a seat for two
and the stick to make hearts in the gravel. Indeed, golf is the game
par excellence for hot days. What do you say, Maxwell Andrews?
Not so F
A good many people do play, though, you can tell by the holes
in the sod of the grass plain, and the slang around the company
streets in camp. Fourteen of the "real earnest onesl' got up a
tournament in August, the result of which is still undecided on ac-
count of the interference of the football practice on the links.

HE Corps and the olhcers of the past have always taken a
great interest in the development of our athleticteams.
Since 1901, when the Army Athletic Association took
charge of several of the sports, there has been more means at our
disposal and, consequently, a steady increase, both in the successes
of the various teams and in the variety of the sports in Which We
have engaged. In the last fevv years, basketball and hockey have
taken their places as permanent Winter sports, and Water-polo has
been tried quite successfully. The tennis and golf tournaments
have become regular features of the summer camp. Every gradu-
ating class develops tvvo or three excellent polo teams.
It seems that the date cannot be far off When the lacrosse
teams Will have the plain on spring afternoons, and the Army crevv
Will be a dangerous factor in the Poughkeepsie races.
This year's Work has been very encouraging in many Ways.
We have given an outline of What the major teams have done.
There is not space enough to describe or enumerate all the inter-
class and inter-section games that have contributed so much to the
fun of the football, baseball and basketball seasons. This increasing
interest in the athletic side of Academy life augurs well for the ability
and success of our future teams.

TNCE its organization in 1880, as successor to the Cadet Prayer Meet-
ings, the Y. M. C. A. has steadily advanced until at the present tinae
it is one of the most powerful factors in the development of character
at the Military Academy.
This advance has naturally been mainly along religious lines. In 1003,
under Leeds, a Bible class was founded. From such a small beginning this
work has increased until at the present time there are alnfost three hundred
cadets engaged in Bible study. The field of endeavor was very much broad-
ened when the Cadet President ofthe Y. M. C. A. was allowed to attend the
President's Conference in IQOO. This privilege and opportunity of getting
in touch with other Y. M. C. A. workers has since been granted every year.
One of the most important and interesting of the yearly events on the
Y. M. C. A. calendar is the annual visit to Northfield. In IQO3, General
Mills allowed three from the Cadet Y. M. C. A. to attend this conference.
Each year since has seen this number increased, until, during the last sum-
mer, twelve men were permitted to attend this gathering of Bible students.
Seven very pleasant and profitable days were spent among the Berkshires,
and the cadets returned to the Point with many new ideas for the furthering
of the growing interest in Bible study.
Bi-weekly meetings are held in Kendrick Hall immediately after the
return of the Battalion from supper, on Sunday and Wednesday evenings.
These meetings are generally addressed by cadets. However, on several
occasions visitors have spoken to the members. Among these were: General
Page, Mr. Robert E. Speer, Mr. Lucian H. Miller, Rev. Mr. Beattie, Chaplain
Brown, Mr. Frederick H. Andrews, Mr. Clayton S. Cooper, Mr. Walte1'E.
Diark, Rev. M1'. Edward H. Earle and Mr. Marshall P. Wilder.
The Young Men's Christian Association, stands for the best -there is in
student life. Its aim is to bring together those men who believe in the
development of well-rounded moral character. How well this aim is being
carried out can be seen from the increasing membership, increasing activity
in all lines of religious work and the great influence it exerts for the good of

HE name, now, stands merely as a monument ofthe old days that are no more.
Long ago Dialectic was a semi-literary, semi-social organization, with a con-
stitution and by-laws. As the literary desires ofthe cadets became fewer,
and their social instincts greater, the old society meeting-room became a gathering-
place where the upper-classmen could, for a few minutes, escape the regulations and
enjoy the delights of "My Lady Nicotinef' Later the members were deprived of
even this stolen privilege, and the Dialectic Hall was converted into a reading room
in charge of a cadet librarian detailed by roster, whose duty it was to see that the
regulations of the U. S. M. A. were not violated.
The society's principal object, now, is the presentation ofthe annual Hundredth
Night Play. The First Class elects a president who has charge of this play and a
general supervision over the small library of books and magazines with which the hall
is supplied. Other than this, Dialectic has no social or literary standing. i
To us, Dialectic is merely a memory. We hope that some day it may become
to those who follow us a real live society where good fellowship may reign supreme
and dull care for a moment be forgotten.

N June 16, IQO5, after three long years of Waiting, our First
Class camp became a reality. '
y With beautiful Weather, something hitherto unknown
in the inauguration of camp, We marched over and took possession
of our summer homes. Oh, hovv the black tar did run from those
tent rails! Hovv the fierce rays of the sun did beat upon our heads!
Hovv We did svvear that it Was a crime to make us labor thus! But
finally We got domiciled, and settled dovvn to make camp hum.
Cf course, the "spoonoids" got busy at once-some men are
irrepressible, anyhovv-too hot to drill, too hot almost to attempt to
keep cool, butiSpurgin said that tennis, played vvith a broken racquet
and the right femme as a partner, could not be excelled. Harry
Torney is still of the opinion that golf-especially the "approach"
can best be practiced in a certain shady nook dovvn near the vvater's
edge on Flirtation. Any excuse Was seized by each and everyone
for giving a party-a picnic, either by day or by moonlight, or per-
haps a "Watermelon party" or a Hboodle partym-all these afforded
plenty of opportunities for such valiant spoonoids as P. D. lVlettler
and Bill Lane to shovv their provvess. The summer hops deserve
a chapter to themselves, for they were the source of much of our
pleasure during camp. They Were all vvell attended. From time
immemorial all classes have said that their hops and their Hfemmesn
Were the best ever. We think our hops vvere. We know our girls are.
Far be it from us, hovvever, to give the impression that We did
nothing but spoon-"Industry thy name is 'I906, H- at least We
made some think so. What master minds discovered hovv to make
Svvishas chair ascend to the tree tops F By What mysterious lavv did
the reveille gun roll into "E " Co. street and there fall to pieces F And
fZZe HOVVITZER 185
Who could have been more industrious than that same "E" Co. When
they had to put that gun back F What better proof' of energy could
one Want thangthose long caravans toiling up that rocky road from
Gee's Point, laden With the produce of the World F' But to be serious,
there Was far more Work than there Was play, from reveille to retreat
there Was not an idle moment.
Target practice Was developed more fully this summer than
ever before, for the First time in the history of the Academy, a
cadet rifle team took part in an outside competition, for the first
time did cadets Win the coveted expert riHe1nan's medal--GateWood
and Campbell achieved this distinction, as did the yearlings, Peter-
, ff.-ff '., RI:
son and Dixon. Our hrst attempts at target practice With Held
and mountain guns Were instructive, and, had it not been for the
prospect of returning to camp by dusty roads Qand to Dusty Rhodesj
they Would have been more pleasant. ,We hope that our pistol prac-
tice Was alittle better than "No, I, a missf' No. 2, a miss,"
UNO. 3, miss," Would indicate. "Linc" kindly let us settle all
bets, and "Skinny" Wainwright boasts to this day of the "pound-
o'-bullv he Won from Jim Green.
At Engineering We Were "sharks"-at least in our oWn esti-
mation. The bridges We built Were certainly good to look at,
nobody attempted to cross them. We became experts in the art of
tying knots. Ned Wild1'ick's favorite Was the K'Granny.', John
Maul, not confining himself to any particular style, became so
enthusiastic that he is still "all tied upf, If We had been given a
Wg f 5 D M

little more time we would have dug all of the dirt from the south
end of the post-Harry Torney and Jim Riley made a good start,
but as one advocated the Italian system of bossing the job, and the
other the Hibernian, no work could go on until a decision was
reached. The instructor constituted himself a board of arbitration
and told the rival Hartistes de shovelu that he wanted "less talk
and more work,,' whereupon both decided that eating green apples
was more interesting anyhow, and "went on a strike."
However, it was in the "Bull Pen" thatwe shone-thatis when
we could brush of enough tan bark to let our smiling countenances
be seen. We certainly made impressions on everything in sight-
the fence has not yet been repaired where Jacob landed in his head-
long Hight from Lindsey's back. What pleasant memories are
brought back to us by lVlethuse's solicitous exhortations, "Keep
your hands down!" "Take your heels out of that horsell' "Give him
his head l " or his assurance that "Thais a nice, quiet little po-o-nylll'
For several days preceding July 25th, there was an air of
mystery about camp. rThe mystery was cleared up on the night of
the 25th, when all of " I906,' was invited to an "At Home" in the
"Cn company laundry tent, given by the IQO6 "Juliets" in honor
of the third anniversary of their admission to the Academy. The
"Juliets"' very justly felt proud of their entertainment. There
was nothing stronger than grape-juice in its mildest form, and as
"Hans" was 0. C., everything ended well.
Visitors sometimes comment on the deep voices and the good
commands given by the members of IQO6. The secret lies in our
"singing school," so ably conducted by the 'cBoy Commander."
"Cadet oflicers will report for voice culture at two P. M.," the order

school in H F" Co. street and nearly drove the " Babe" out of business.
Notwithstanding the intense heat Qhow many misguided crea-
tures have been bumped for saying the "heat was in tentsllvj all
sports kept on without a stop. We had an early start on polo, using
English saddles from the beginning of camp, great interest was
shown by a large number of men, and by the middle of the summer
there were several strong teams. The call for candidates for the
football and baseball teams were made as usual with encouraging

camp, was quite as popular as ever, and the playing was of unusual
We recall, with shudders of awe, that terrible all-day fight,
Corlcyls 75th-or was it the 76th F-battle. Early in the morning,
to the sound of martial music rendered by the H. Cfs, the opposing
forces marched forth to the Held of battle. The Blue, or attacking
force, marched beyond the Cross Roads toward Long Pond. The
Brown force was to occupy Eagle Valley, defending West Point
against the hated invaders. At two o'clock, both armies having

dined sumptuously on the dainty guard 'sandwiches provided by
the camp-followers, the engagement began. lt is needless to repeat
the story of that bloody day, the brave stand of General.Wildrick's
force on the right of the defense, the masterly flanking march of
Field Marshal Wainwright, turning General Riley's brigade, the
daring dash of Colonel Quekemeyerjs regiment of cavalry, these
are matters of histroy. Who can everforget the prowess of aide-de-
camp Mick Daley, who rode three horses to death, or the stirring
words of Corky-a"Back! my brave boys, we will beat them yet!l" F
By five o'clock the "battle was o,er,'.' the victorious Blue force had
captured West Point, and both victors and vanquished, weary and

Worn, united in giving thanks that one more "soiree" was finished.
Soon after this, began the preparations for an extended practice
march, Which Dame Rumor said Was to last a Week, it lasted only
five days, but 'vve vvish it had lasted longer. The entire corps took
part, and nobody regretted being there, in fact this Was the most
valauble experience of the entire summer.
But all things, good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant, come to
an end. With mingled feelings of delight and sorrow We savv the
approach of August Zgtll-'Ell?lTL day meant the passage of another
milestone on our journey, but it also meant the leaving behind of
pleasant days and the breaking up of associations dear to us.
As a fitting close for our summer festivities, a domino party
was decided upon. This Was indeed a novelty for West Point, but
it Was a tremendous success.
The next morning We "folded our tents like Arabsf, but there

IFE at West Point is so strenuous that a change of any sort
is hailed with joy, days, weeks, and even months in advance, so
after the Christmas holidays had passed, and IQC5 had quieted
down to a steady pace, the thoughts of the cadets, ever dwelling in
the future, settled down upon the fourth of Marcli as the nearest
Oasis in the weary stretch till June. Since the people of the United
States had seen Ht to elect a President, we would be so good as to
see that he obtained his oHice. V-
But there was a dry and sandy stretch in between, and a little
tan bark into the bargain. For a week before the eventful day, the
walls of the old riding hall reverberated to commands other than
"Lean back!" or "Trot outl," now it was "Squads rightly' or
"Squads left!," While out in the stable yards a chosen few were
mauling and belaboring some poor patient animals in an attempt to
learn the art of mule packing.
As the day drew near, the Corps retained its usual aspect of
doubtful scorn, it reemed like a good thing, but everyone was sure
there was a soiree attached somewhere. The first hitch came when
the packing was made, No one seemed an authority on the subject,
and one man actually changed his clothes from one locker to another
six times, then threw them into his suit case in disgust. But these
are mere superficialities.
On the morning of the third, we left VVest Point, having been
"entrained in a military manner." We hoped to reach Washington
by noon, in fact, many had made engagements for the afternoon
and evening. Noon came, and we had barely left Jersey City, the
Corps was becoming sullen. Four o,clock came, we were creeping
along somewhere near Philadelphia, the Corps was outspoken in
its denunciations. Five o'clock came, we were at a dead halt, and
we 'knew not whereg the Corps was blasphemousg the storm had
brokeng the atmosphere was blue, and smelled of hre and brim-
stone, shrieks, curses, and groans were mingled in one confused
Yle HOWITZER 193
roar. At six We had started once more, and the Corps had subsided
into a state oflistless apathy. At seven, the lights ofthe city appeared
and soon We were rolling through the streets of the Capitol. We
arrived in a drizzle, the streets Were full of mud, and the dark was
pitchy. But We relied upon our efficient leader, Who soon conducted
us to our haven, Washington Barracks.
Some of us Were too tired and dispirited to do other than
search out our baggage, wash some of the dirt from our faces, and
BARRACKS THE FIRST NIGHT ,
then roll into bed. But a great many still had enough energy to go
forth in search of a good time in the city. At all hours of the night
these pleasure-seekers Were strolling in, and not till the Wee small
hours was every bunk filled.
The morning of the fourth davvned clear and Windy. Even before
the sun had given a golden tip to VVashington's monument, the Corps
Was astir. After considerable delay, the drums sounded, the com-
panies Were formed, and the battalion started toward the Capitol,
followed by the artillery, the cavalry, and thedauntless pack train.
A large crovvd had already assembled when We arrived. Uni-
forms of every description Were in evidence, the sober but dignified
apparel of the Lieutenant-General, the smart and striking costume
of the Aide, foreign staffs With their brilliant colors, and staff oHicers
of our own army in black,vvith colored sashesg all forminga pleasing
contrast to the sober gray of the cadets and the dark blue of the
. BEFORE THE PARADE
At noon Mr. Roosevelt appeared on the stand. The impressive
ceremony of administering the oath of office was conducted, while a
hush fell over the assembled thousands. Afterwards, frequently
interrupted by cheers, the President delivered his address, and at
its conclusion moved down between the battalion of cadets and the
brigade of midshipmen, ,both standing at present arms, entered his
carriage, and was driven toward the White House.
The parade started soon after the President had left. Ours
was the place of honor. In column of platoons we swung around
the Capitol into Pennsylvania avenue. The sidewalks were crowded
and every window was filled. Cheer after cheer greeted us, passing
from throat to throat down the crowded street, dying away and then
breaking out afresh with renewed vigor. Away back in the rear, one
poor mule, overcome no doubt by the excitement of the moment,
would insist upon lying down in the middle of the street. This con-
duct was not approved, and he was taken home in disgrace. The
rest of the column continued an unbroken march to the post-office
building. Here a short halt was made while the President and his
party were lingering at dinner. 'But the waiting populace kept
time from hanging heavily on our hands. Fair damsels smiled at
us from the windows, or threw down dainties for us to eatg while the
more mischief-loving would launch an apple or an orange at an
unsuspecting dress-hat, sometimes with telling effect.
Re HOWITZER 19:
Soon, however, the distinguished appetites were appeased and
the parade resumed. Somehow, before we reached the reviewing
stand, as if by instinct, every man became alert, something told him
that now he must do his best. The President stood with uncovered
head as the Corps marched by. When the command, "Eyes left!"
was given, every eye sought his face, every heart beat faster - we
were soldiers in the presence of our Commander-in-Chief.
Then came a most delightful hour spent as the guests of Senator
and Mrs. Kean. We were royally entertained. All manner of good
things were given us to eat, and there were second, third, and even
fourth rounds of everything. We had been on our feet since early
morning, and our appetites were in a condition to do justice to the
bountiful repast set before us. Senator and Mrs. Kean will long
retain a warm spot in the hearts of the Corps. Occasions like this
are what brighten the life of a cadet, they make him feel that
wherever he may go, the uniform he wears will always open a way
to the gaining of sympathetic friends. v
Weary and footsore we reached the barracks again just at dusk.
Still, after a cup of good hot coffee and a cigar, many felt spry
enough to put on their dress coats and set out again for the city.
There were fireworks at the monument, the ball at the Pension
building, and besides, many theaters, each of these drew a goodly
number of men. Some few remained at home, lost in sweet sleep
and pleasant dreams, called up no doubt by the stirring scenes of
With the succeeding day, another chapter in our lives closed, a
chapter full of vivid scenes and deep impressions imprinted in firm
and lasting character on our memories. That day spent in our
Nation's capitol will stand out distinct from all others, associated
with the fa ces of great men, our renowned and distinguished leaders.

HE first "Personally Conducted" undertaken by IQO6

upon the lVIetropolitan Art Gallery.
The journey to town was devoid of incident or accident, and
after a careful exploration of all of Central Park, we arrived at our
We created quite a sensation at the Museum, people didn't
know whether we were a fresh relief-of attendants or not, but upon
sight of our formidable note-books and pencils, they were reassured
and allowed us to follow our several ways undisturbed-except by
the thought that we had to hand in reports of the trip and that we
would better "get busyf,
We were divided into two squads, one to study the paintings
and the other the architectural models. VVe had to examine so very
many pictures or models in a given time, that we at once began to
" study art" with "life," however, the Drawing Departmentls system
of denoting preference made things easy-to quote Jim Green,
"I chose Rembrandt,s 'Portrait of a Man, because it had three
stars opposite it."
After luncheon, the squads exchanged tasks, and the note-
taking went on to a hot finish. At the time of departure, " Barney,"
for some unknown cause, failed to show up, so, much to our sorrow,
we were unable to add to the works of art in the museum one of his
peerless "Just one more, gentlemenf'
Upon our return we had to hand in lengthy reports, and the
Department, not to be outdone, handed in some reports, too, for
example: "Spurgin: Failing to submit, etc.,,' but notwithstanding
these little pleasantries, the entire class voted the trip an entirely
enjoyable and instructive one.

" QUAD, Attention! If there is any man here who feels that he:cannot
give his word not to indulge in intoxicating drinks today, let him
fall out and return to camp." A moment's pause, every man kept
his place. "Prepare to mount. Mount! Pours Right, March! Route
Order!" We were off to see the 7th Regiment encamped at Peekskill eight
miles away. A delightful canter down a long and shady road, a slow walk
over a high hill, a spirited trot, another short canter, a few moments halt
to breathe our horses, then on again, and before we knew it we had reached
our destination. .
Our reception was all that could have been desired. A woman enter-
tains another woman with gossip, a man entertains another man with

ran for more, When we were physically unable to swallow another crumb,

datilnted, vge got rid of everything, and they slapped us on the back and
called us good fellows. We weren,t above gossip either. One would have
thought himself transported to the days of Babel, to have heard us, every-
body talking, nobody listening, and such shouting and laughing-even
Hooley Foox was seen to indulge in a loud guffaw.
After awhile, dinner time came-more eating. It seemed that our com-
ing had been made a special occasion, and a wonderful meal had been pre-
pared. Strange to say, our appetites were as keen as in the morning, and we
did justice to the spread. How those 7th Regiment boys do eat!
After dinner we lounged about the tents, cracking grinds, smoking,
taking snap shots for future reference, and having a good time generally.
Every man was ready to vow he was having the best time he ever had in
But all good things come to an end-so did that. Not having any other
way to express our appreciation, we turned them out a class yell, a Corps
yell, and a yell altogether, then mounted our steeds and rode away.

HE Northfield Students' Conference is an annual gathering
of Christian workers from all of the leading colleges in the
East at the town of Northfield, Mass. Matters pertaining
to the work done during the preceding scholastic year are discussed
and commented upon, and plans for the future are drawn up.
ln 1893 an attempt .was made to send a delegation from West
Point, but it was unsuccessful. The next year a graduate and a
furlough-man attended the conference, and the latter not only
brought back glowing accounts but caused a constitution to be
adopted and the Y. lVl. C. A. to be established on a sound basis.
Finally in 1899 the Superintendent permitted three delegates to
attend the Students' Conference, and now,owing to the great advance
in Christian work at the Academy, twelve delegates are sent each
Y Cn the third of July, this year, the chosen few left Camp
Edgerton for a "forced marchu to Northfield. From the first class
there were Westover, Campbell, Johnson, W. A., Downing, Jones,
R. A., McFarland, and Hoyle, from the Third class, Schultz, W.,
Cullum, O'Brien, Jarman, and Goethals.
The trip was of such a nature as to make the practice march
and shame-er-er-that is-the tactical maneuvers of the latter
part of camp seem like play. From seven P. M. on the third until
ten A. M. on the fourth, we were laboriously trying to reach our
destination, with enjoyable and lengthy halts at such great places
as Greenfield and Millers Falls, where we roamed the streets-
they called them by that name-in the moonlight, patiently awaiting
the pleasure of the Central Vermont R. R., which finally made it
"at a wallcf'

banners floated from all the Windows and from the gables of the
roof, for Harvard, Wesleyan, Amherst, Columbia, McGill from
Canada, and several smaller colleges Were already installed therein,
While delegations from Yale, Princeton, Cornell and other colleges
were in other buildings scattered around the conference grounds.
When We came dovvn to our Hrst meal in the big dining hall, We
found that the table of honor in the centre had been reserved for us,
and before We could reach our seats every college there represented
turned us out a yell, each of Which We returned. Before long, from
Harvard's corner rang out, "We Want 'Army Bluel' "---We did our
best. The meal Was certainly a Hhovvlingn success.
That day being the glorious Fourth, a track meet Was held in
the afternoon. We entered a man in every event, thus giving every-
one tvvo or three chances to distinguish himself, but, ovving partly
to the fatigue of our trip, and principally to our lack of athletes, We
did not Win the meet as the cadets did last year. Still the showing
Was by no means bad.

The day closed with exercises in the auditorium, an immense
hall, which accommodated all of the delegations, and had plenty of
room for the ladies besides. The galleries were well nlled when we
arrived in full dress with white trousers. Wlith the Corps colors in
the lead we marched to our seats 'mid a deafening uproar from all
over the building. Then followed the other colleges at lock-step,
winding up and down the aisles, singing their college anthems.
They wore sashes and head-dresses With their respective college
colors, and made a most impressive spectacle.
After the noise had been quieted down there was a short ad-
dress, and then each college delegation was called upon for a song
and cheer. We came first with "Army Blue" and a 'flaong Corps
Yell," then followed "Fair Harvard," the "Yale Boola," "Old
Nassau," and others, none could fail to notice the spirit of perfect
good will and hearty fellowship that was expressed in the faces,
and reverberated in the cheers of this significant body of represent-
ative students. After escorting the colors home, we returned to
rally ,round a tremendous bonfire, built up sixty or seventy feet, and
throwing a light over the rollicking crowd in a most fascinating
Qur work started on the fifth, and was of a very pleasant
nature. At 8.30 a. m., we attended auditorium meeting, and
listened to many short talks of an immensely practical value, as
well as taking part in all conferences that ensued, this meeting
lasted until 9.30, when the classes for Bible study were held. There
were a number of these classes, each taking up some diH"erent part
of the Bible. At II a. m., came Platform Meeting, at which time
some noted Christian worker delivered an address, always of an
intensely interesting nature. The afternoons were spent in recrea-
tion. Every evening just at dusk, there was an outdoor gathering
at "Round Top," a little hill overlooking the delegation grounds.
Probably the most strikingly picturesque of all the scenes at North-
held was this meeting with its hundreds of students offering up their
songs and prayers at the close of day, in the distance the river and
the mountains lighted up by the last golden rays of the sun, bringing a
gentle and glorious benediction, and a sense of deep reverence into
every heart. At eight P. M., we attended another short service in
the auditorium, after which our delegation usually met in our rooms
at "The Marquandn to discuss the matters of the day just passed,
and to form plans for the morrow.
Yfze HOWITZER 201
The days were full of work, but still some of the fellows seemed
to think there was still something to be done at "The Northfield,"
a large summer hotel, and full of the ever present and ever welcome
sweet summer girls. Then there was tennis, baseball, and many
other sports, in every way we were most royally entertained.
The meeting closed on the ninth, and an early start for West
Point was made next morning. Every man felt sorry to leave that
atmosphere of perfect cleanliness and good fellowship, an atmosphere
impossible to appreciate unless you have been to Northfield during
a delegation meeting. Even the cadets, who were about to return
to dear old West Point, sighed, every man of them, they did not
even "buck up" when, as our train rounded a bend of the Hudson,
that old familiar view came into sight Qrlwrophy Point, Flirtation,
and all that you knowj. Soon, yea too soon, Camp Edgerton was
reached, and the little delegation was lost in the greater corps. But
they trust that the spirit which was so indelibly impressed upon them
may be diffused among the Corps, as is the leaven in the great loaf.

N spite of the fact that the hop of the night before had kept us
from our downy couches until the old tower clock had struck
its last before morning, the rising sun beheld some still earlier
risers, for this was the day of our trip to the renfowned and
famous Lake Oscawana.
And so, even before reveille, all Was hurry and bustle in Camp
Edgerton. Blankets, curry-combs, tin plates, all went into the same
pile, and wife helped wife to get the cavalry roll suitable fortravel-
ling. Our breakfast time was short, but not too short for us to
think of the many things we had forgotten to put in our rolls, and
so we hurried home to search out and borrow the missing articles.
Then the rolls were piled into the waiting wagons, and, just as the
battalion was marching across the plain from breakfast, the Recon-
naissance Party formed on the color line, and thence proceeded
to the plain to the waiting line of horses there to draw the prizes-
Fulton, Marcy, or Strong, trembling with fear, we awaited the pleas-
ure of Dame Fortune. Stirrups were quickly adjusted, the unfor-
tunates, meanwhile, making uncomplimentary remarks about their
innocent companions for the march, while those who were fortnuate
enough to draw Meade or Starring were fearful lest they would
have to "close in one Hle to the right."
With mingled feelings of pleasant anticipation and nameless
fear, we watched the strange bundles, called luncheons, packed at
the Mess Hall, then trotted down the hill to the ferry. Each man
drew a breath of relief as the boat pulled out from shore leaving
West Point behind.
The several squads parted company at the Country Club.
With sketching cases oriented, erasers secure, pencils sharpened,
each indicated the origin of its map and started on its own road
into the unknown, hoping to meet again at a common destination,
even if their sketches did insist that they were miles apart,
The roads made many bends, the sights were difhcult to take,
the lines were hard to draw, and the horses would 11Ot stand still.
The silence of the immense woods was often broken by a "Hold
stillll' or a'k'VVhoal" supplemented by remarks quite unauthorized
AFTER THE FIRST MEAL
by the Department of Tactics. But the engineers knew it must be
thus, for they had drawn maps before.
After dreary hoursof pushing the "6H," our appetites began
to long for the unknown delicacies of that mess-hall lunch. About
noon we were much relieved when the Lieutenant stopped at a
delightful little spring by the roadside and informed us that there
we were to feast.
The horses were first unsaddled and turned into Farmer Du-
crot's pasture, there to help themselves to the spoils of the land.

Our rest was short, We soon had our horses saddled again-and
plodding on toward our distant goal. Shortly before sundovvn We
pulled up on the crest of a hill to vievv the surrounding country,
What We saw cheered us and made us glad once more. For there
beneath us, nestled cosily in a bend of the tranquil Canopus, Was

our camp already pitched. One squad had arrived before us, for
there were some horses tied to a picket line, with an abundance of
fZZe HOWITZER 205
hay scattered around, into which the tired creatures were continually
thrusting their noses. Some few persons were gathered around a
solitary camp-fire which had been built down near the creek. It
was a pleasant-sight, offering soothing rest for our tired limbs, and
a promise of something to satisfy our now ravenous appetites. We
were met at headquarters by our Commander-in-Chief, Swish. He
had not been seen before, but was much in evidence thereafter.
Supper did not last long, for P. D. and Bill Lane had already
reported on the wonders of the lake. So by seven, we were trudging
up the hill, then on and on toward the hotel and the "Shebang."
The walk Was hard, but the lake pretty, the boat ride refreshing,
and the hop delightful, and we hope our hostess did not disapprove
of our costume, for we had forgotten our dress coats and were forced
to attend in riding trousers and gray shirts, torn and dusty. At
first our Commander-in-Chief would allow us to stay till ten only,
but lost in the' smiles of a pretty 1'716lZ.Cl,E71, he later extended the
time thirty minutes and then got an absence on taps himself. How-
ever, none of us care tolthrow stones.
Dusty and tired we went to camp, but not to sleep, for those
who preferred camp to the lake were kept awake by yells like,
UNO. 2, two o'clock, allis well," this about II p. m. in camp near
Canopus, Creek. But even the noisiest finally quieted down. It
was strange how soundly the men did sleep, especially when an
effort was made by the poor picket sentinel to rouse some one to
take his place. Reveille came, as it always does, at the most inop-
portune time, and right hard it was that morning.
In the course of an hour our trusty band filed off down the
trail with compass and sketching case, and took the road toward
home. Shortly before noon we passed our starting point of the
day before, and stopped at Garrison to eat our lunches and put the
finishing touches to our maps. Then with joy in our hearts, we
boarded the "I-Iiglilanderl' again, and started for the West Shore,
surrendered our horses to the cavalry guard on the other side, and,
with a sigh of relief, crossed the cavalry plain to old Camp Edgerton
and the showers.
Although it cannot be said that our maps were wonders, either
in accuracy or neatness, still we can say that they contain nothing
but what might be found on the other side of the river, and you could
do no more than lose yourself were you to use one as a guide. It was
work, and some of it pretty tedious, but still full of those little inci-
dents that gladden the heart of a cadet and give him pleasant mem-
ories when, old and gray, he lapses into quiet moments of sweet

the Goat belonged, was taken to Fort Totten. Here it was that the

This caused a Thrill of Joy to disturb him. He had Hitherto been
accustomed to attend six, with Lectures thrown in betvveen, so the
Goat slept no more, but remained Wide awake and listened to all
the Wonders that Were told Him. From a slot in the Conning
tower, He Would Watch the Incoming ships as their White sails

But this Was not all that the Goat Was to See. One night
When the Darkness of Blackest midnight Sat upon the sea, Four

AST target practice season, for the Hrst time in its history,
the Military Academy had a rifle team which was sent to
Sea Girt, there to compete in the National Shoot. Perhaps
no time more favorable for the formation of a rifle team could have
been selected, as this year, by special attention to target-practice,
We were able to qualify four expert riflemen, twelve sharpshooters,
and ten marksmen from the first and third classes-a record far in
advance of that of any previous year. It is a noteworthy fact that
the grade ofexpert-riilemen has never before been attained by a Cadet.
From their records on the range during the summer, the follow-
ing men were selected to compose the rifle team: Campbell, Clagett,
Cotton, Dixon, Gatewood, Heard, Horsfall, Lewis, C. A., Mac-
lVlillan, Minick, Peterson, Pratt, Torney, Westover and Wildrick.
Captain Exton was team captain, Captain Thayer, coach, and
Lieutenant Glade, spotter. These omcers and cadets left West
Point for Sea Girt, Friday, Aug. 18.
At Sea Girt there were two sides to our life, two sides that were
separate and apart, however. To do one well, we found it necessary
to forget the other for the time. Remembering the motto " Business
before pleasure," we take them up in their proper order.
Our first work was to inspect the Sea Girt range after the firing
had ceased the first day. We found it very different from our own
range. The method of marking hits was new to us. The range
clocks were new to us, the anerometer puzzled us, at first to know
what it was, then to read it.
Though we had heard of many devices in use on the target
range, we had seen but few, and for all we knew, those mysterious
satchels that the old "cracks', carried with them on the range might
He HOWITZER 211
contain a guide to the bulls eye, or a guarantee of centers. Later, we
found that the usual contents of such a satchel were: an hygro-
meter, a thermometer, a telescope, a sight elevator, et Cetera, all
indispensable when contending with Sea Girt conditions, so the
The conditions were indeed trying at times, we often found
them hard to cope with. The man on the firing line, as he faces his
target, looks toward the east and out to sea-the long-range targets
are directly on the beach. In the early morning the sun, rising
behind the targets, throws a light on them that completely non-
pluses the average man. In the afternoon the light conditions were
just reversed, with the sun directly behind the contestant, his target
stood out clear and distinct. Naturally, the best scores were made
in the afternoon, those to whose lot it fell to fire in the early morning
were simply "out of luck." So much for the light conditions.
Down in "Washington Valleyf, more commonly known as
"the polo Hats," where our own target range is located, nature has
put up a sort of semi-circular barrier against the wind-that ele-
ment most destructive of high scores in shooting. At Sea Gift no
such barriers exist. A constant sea breeze has clean sweep over the
range. This breeze frequently attains the proportions of a hurri-
cane, the anerometer registering a velocity of from 25 to 30 miles
212 He HOWITZER
an hourg with the result that we were forced to use windages never
heard of at West Point.
The inevitable result of these new and varying conditions was
erratic shooting. Qn days when the conditions approached those
we had been used to, our score was excellentg when the conditions
were capricious, the wretched scores told the tale.
About three days Were spent in practiceg then the National
Individual Match opened. In this match there were about 700
entries-all team captains entering their men in order to give them
the advantage of the practice for the National Team Match. During
this time our shooting improved very much. We had gained con-
THE FIRING LINE
siderably in self-conhdence, and knew now that the secret of shooting
did not lie in those mysterious satchels. In the team match we made
a good showing, and we are confident that we would have stood
much higher had we been more thoroughly acquainted with the
peculiar conditions of the range.
As to the general results of the trip much might be said. In
no other way could we have been so profoundly impressed with the
important place assigned to target practice by the military authori-
ties. No keener interest in the results of the shooting from day to
day was displayed than by those whom we have a right to assume
know most about the needs of the service.
He HOWITZER 213
Now about the social side of our stay in that most delightful
region. In telling this We feel like second classmen reciting deeds
of furlough to yearlings in june. On the second night there, en-
cased in buttons and white trousers, we swooped down en marie on
the grand military ball at the N. State Ride Association Club
House. We had the pleasure of meeting there many of the delightful
summer girls who frequent the jersey coast. Before we said good-
night to these dear girls, we had accepted enough invitations to
dinners and dances to keep us in dress coats till a permanent set left
us top shaped. We cannot say enough good things about the Sea
Girt girls, to whom we are indebted for so many enjoyable occasions.
ln the morning they would drive over to the range, after sending
the coachman along the firing line to locate the "West Point cadetsf,
they would take up their stand in rear of our position while they
Watched the firing of those in whom they chanced to be especially
interested. When these particular cadets had completed their
"strings," they would, as you might expect, drop back and join
the Hgalleryf' Close -observation usually disclosed the fact that the
interest of the girls, as well as that of the fortunate cadets, waned
just at this time, and an attentive ear might have heard some such
remark as this directed to a Montana peak: "Run along into camp
now and change uniforms, I want to drive you over to Deal Beach.
Quick!" Like a good soldier, the cadet obeyed. Not the least
enjoyable one of these jaunts was a trip in "the machinel' to Asbury
Park, followed by dinner and a dance at the Casino.
While we are assigning credit to those who made the Sea Girt
trip two weeks' of continuous pleasure, we must mention General
Harries, whose dinner to the entire team and its oH'icers at the
New Monniouth in Spring Lake will cause him to be pleasantly
remembered by us all.
We regret that lack of space compels us to omit many inter-
esting accounts-as, for instance, the evolution of a full-fledged
spoonoid from such unsuspected material as Pot Lewis, who proved
himself quite a Chesterfield on various occasions.
It is claimed that no squad of cadets ever left West Point with
more privileges than the members of the rifle team, and none of
those who went are in a position to dispute the claim. No request for
a reasonable privilege was refused, and there were few infractions
of rules. There were some, to be sure, but verily they had their
reward, their children to the seventh generation will rise up and
call Baron Rosen blessed.

Extract from Colonel C. A. Bill's Organization and Tactics, Edition 1925.
"Campaign of Corps of Kaydets in Summer of 1 905"
"NVhere ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be Wise."
-Colonel Dutch Kiefer
S an example of the principles set forth in the foregoing
chapters, the campaign of the West Point Corps is Without
an equal. In this remarkable raid, covering a period of
five days, every principle of artillery, infantry, cavalry, and
other regulations, Was most consistently violated, thus showing the
practical value of the author's assertion that a complete knowledge of
tactics is necessary in order to do otherwise.
On August 21, the Corps, consisting of one division of infantry,
one regiment of cavalry, one regiment of artillery, one ambulance
train, one supply column, and one provost guard, left West Point
and crossed to the East bank of the Hudson. The crossing Was
not opposed by the enemy, as the staff had previously arranged
matters With the Ferry company, and all fares had been paid.
Theoretically, Garrisons Was the base of operations, an im-
aginary force Was left here With instructions to vary its size from
time to time as the exigencies of the case demanded. From here
the first operations were directed against the enemy commanded
by Count Von Nieu Bovvld, Who had under him a considerable
force composed of all arms, and occupying a strongly fortified posi-
tion on the road leading from Garrisons to Cold Springs. The
attacking force Was commanded by General Babe.
About eleven A. M. the advance scouts of the attacking column
stumbled on to the enemy, and spent a fevv moments discharging
their pistols into the air in order to dernoralize the enemyls forces.
Hearing the noise in front, General Babe sent his aide, Captain
He HOWITZER 215
Wareing, to see what was doing, the latter, finding a nice rough-
house going on, of course stayed to see the fun. About this time
the gallant Captain Pelot rushed forward with his artillery, estab-
lished it in battery on the side ofa hill, and began afurious fire upon
a clump of trees about two thousand yards distant, but, happening
to look over the stone wall along which his guns were stationed, he
discovered the enemy's infantry lying Hat on the ground, he
then held the butt of his pistol in the air and yelled, "Decision,' at
the top of his voice, so frightening the enemy that they ran away
and commenced a flank attack.
Meanwhile, on the left, a heated engagement was being fought
by the cavalry dismounted and the infantry. The cavalry of the
attacking column was commanded by Colonel Olmstead, and was
exceedingly well handled. It advanced up the road at a trot to

'Zia HOWITZER 217
within one hundred
yards of the hostile
drew lots for horse-
enjoying a spicy fire
from the enemy.
Finally, line of skir-
mishers was formed,
. and the men began
COMPANY STREET to return the fire,
but when their guns
got hot, they had to throw them away and hide themselves in the
thick grass. The enemy, who had expected an attack, thought per-
haps a mistake had been made, and fell back anyhow.
Count Von Nieu Bowld could, no doubt, have won the Hght,
but feeling a gnawing at his stomach, he turned to his aide saying,
"Some of us eat to live, but most of us live to eatgn whereupon the
aidephadthe recall sounded, and both forces went into camp near
Cold Springs. The casualties were very few, two men were poisoned
with ivy,.and one was slightly overheated. U
The next day Gen. Le Com heard that the enemy was march-
ing on Fishkill, he decided to cut him off. To do this it was neces-
sary to have a forced march. The day being Sunday, negotiations
were opened with the enemy, and it was agreed that no guns would
be fired, but whoever got there first could have the village. It was
one thing to say make a forced march and another to do it, so it
was decided to turn loose Col. Bird du Caw in front of the command
and sic the troops on him. This was done with great success.
At Fishkill the troops were allowed to bathe in the river, but
could not show their heads above the banks. During the evening
some went to church, others lingered in camp around the fires, and
still others went elsewhere.
Cn the following day, Col. Si Monds had command of the
attacking force. The action on this day was a great credit to the
cavalry. Captain Quack made a gallant charge upon an artillery
position, sabered the cannoneers, and put the whole battery out of
business. Lieut. Hooly Foox was scouting out ahead of the column
218 Ee HOWITZER
When the enemy
opened fire with his

that the enemy had

action coupled With

The infantry did not have a chance to distinguish itself until
about noon, When it spied in the distance the hostile artillery,
limbered up and moving so asyto expose its flank. Immediately
the command deployed and opened up a vigorous fire. The enemy
responded by Waving their handkerchiefs as a signal that the light
Was over, it Was decided that none of the shots took effect.
Camp that night Was pitched on a rocky hillside. Many of
the soldiers attended a ball in the vicinity and danced With the prettv
maidens, some ran away and visited Mount Beacon, but all Were
ready for action the next morning.
Cn this day, Col. Bird du Cavv Was sent With a detachment to
intercept the enemy's Wagon train. The morning Was filled with
heated engagements, all noted for their many acts of individual
braveryg the men Were fearless in the face of a most galling fire.
Col. Bird du Cavv couldn't find the train, but decided to give the
enemy a hot time anyhovv. The cavalry, commanded by Capt.
Fanny Dickman, made a thrilling charge around the brovv of a hill
and later engaged the infantry of the enemy. Each side thought it
licked the other, and thereupon a heated dispute arose, but Count
Von Nieu Bowld, riding up, ordered the cavalry back to try it over.
Later the enemy turned loose upon Col. du Cavv's forces a Wild
horse With a plovv attached, in an attempt to demoralize his forces.
This Was contrary to the rules of War, as it is expressly stated that
the ranks may be plowed by bullets only. This fact Was called to

Men stood on oppo-
site sides oftrees and

this Was the most serious calamity of the war.
Camp that night was pitched 'near the Hudson, but nobody
was drowned, though it was feared for a while that Major Kate
Donahoo was lost, he afterwards turned up.
Next day General Le Com directed an attack on Cold Springs,
then held by General Babe. The fight was mostly carried on by
Col. Bow Lee with his artillery. The forces of General Babe fell
back before the terrific noise of the cannon and frightful sounds
that escaped from the lips of Col. Bow Lee. Hearing these, General
Babe threw up his hands, shrieking, "All is lost!" and fell back on
his imaginary base, Cold Springs. Before he could cross the river
the enemy came up and they crossed together.
Thus ended this remarkable campaign, in Which no towns were
destroyed, not a line of communication cut, no muskets captured,
no prisoners taken, and not a single life lost.
COMING UP THE HILL
"Mathuse's 600 at The Horse Show "'
CCopied from the Society Columns of the New York Daily Tommy-Rotnb
HE First Class from the United States Nlilitary Academy
entered the ring about half past three in the afternoon and
occupied boxes at both ends of the Garden. They were
chaperoned by Captain Mathuse, a prominent society man and an
expert horseman, who has been of late teaching the class to be
English in the saddle.
Society had long since begun to tire of the entries, and the
timely arrival of the cadets served to add a touch of brilliancy to
the affair of the week, calling them out en mama.
The entries of the afternoon were dull for the most part, except
the Hunter's class, which held the attention of all until it closed.
The cavalry class, it was noticed, particularly amused the cadets,
and well it might anyone who professed to be a cavalryman. Several
times it was seen that the riders had no scruples about throwing
away their sabers. It had been customary for one cadet, at least,
to ride during previous years, and the fact that no one did this year
proved a disappointment to many.
At six in the evening a reception was held in the upper ball
room for the cadets, Colonel Fellows and Captain Mathuse being
in the receiving line. An elaborate dinner was served in the cafe
immediately afterwards, and when cigars had been passed, the young
men at the tables arose and gave many cheers for their generous host.
The evening performance took on more life, and few cadets
remained in their boxes. Oiseau Byrd was seen chatting gaily in
the box of Mrs. Birdlike Tu. He wore a buttoniere of orchids and
He HOWITZER 221
E. De Long Smith and Paul Revere Manchester' were at the
head of the main stairway where they stood most of the evening.
It is said the former will soon announce his engagement, but Dame
Rumor has it that he is somewhat indisposed toward giving the
usual bachelor dinner, as he has too many convivial friends, this
is mere gossip, yet K. W. Marantette Wilhelm says it is certain,
and K. W. generally knows.
5 Mr. G. L. R. Converse did the ring several times. He is looking
much better than usual this year, and there is much conjecture as
James Wilson Riley was there, and also John Yazoo Queke-
meyerg both a'EImz'am'es of last winter. They were resplendent in
gold lace and American beauty roses. Mr. Quekemeyer has taken
on much color lately, especially since his formal entrance. They
occupied a box, ,
Mr. Joseph Choate King was completely surrounded by a
bevy of ladies, and was hugely lionized most of the evening. He
made his formal bow just last summer, but he carried himself with
the poise that rarely comes for several seasons.
Later in the evening the cadets shared the attention of the
audience with the New York corps of Street Cleaners, whose natty
white uniforms and gold buttons mingled most pleasantly with the
West Point gray: The street Cleaners were cheered heartily as they
entered the ring. To be sure, these men did not march as .steadily
nor stand as erectly as the cadets, but .anything in uniform will
please the ladies, who henceforth gave the cadets only half of their
The street cleaners wore long wreathes of beautiful morning
glories tied with pink ribbons, while most of the cadets wore shower
bouquets in the evening.

To the fnrtructor 0fOra'1mnce, United State: Mz'lz'tary zffaalemy:
SIR :-I have the honor to submit the following report of my visit to the Water-
vliet Arsenal on january 27, IQO6.
We left West Point early in the morning, arriving at Albany at a decent hour
for breakfast, which we found all ready and waiting for us. The pretty young wait-
resses did their best to please, and were mostly successful, but I think Cadet VVilli-
ford can give more extended information on this subject. We then took the trolley
for the Arsenal, several miles out of the city in the direction of Buffalo, in fact
almost in the suburbs of Troy. The route led along a large ditch, which some said
was the Erie canal.
After being introduced to the Commanding Ofhcer at the Arsenal, and passing
the time of day with him, We started to inspect the different shops. For this pur-
pose we were divided into groups, each group taking along a captain or a lieutenant
as a guide.
We saw many interesting and amusing things. The machinery was well disci-
plined and did some wonderful tricks. The new I6-inch gun is a whopper, made
entirely of wood, thus possessing a great advantage over the old types in point of
weight and price. Inoticed a peculiar kind of breech block, it was spherical in
shape, and in fact was a two-hinged truss fastened at both ends. Among other
things, there was a new kind of shaping tool that worked at the rate of 27 feet a
minute, cutting off a curled chip one square inch in cross section and developing
such intense heat that the chip turned a beautiful blue. This was the most incred-
ible thing in the shop. We also saw them shrink a jacket on to a tube, the jacket
being lifted by means of a stork.
Luncheon was served at noon, and this was the most enjoyable hour of the
day. There were sandwiches, coffee, skags and charming girls. We ate the first,
drank the second, smoked the third, talked to and made eyes at the fourth. What
would the Army be without the ladies ?
In the afternoon we did some more inspecting, but by this time my brain was
rather fagged, and I only remember one thing of importance, this was a centrifugal
wringer for squeezing oil out of steel. 'I didn't know before that it could be done.
We left the Arsenal at 4. P. M., had dinner at the Depot, and started for YVest
Point at 5:30, reaching there without accident about tattoo.
JOHN CONRAD MALLET, Cadet First Class
Q f'QQ 4' ' p '.Aq'
N a bright day next April the "Gen, Meigs " will come again to West
Point and take into its arms the Class of 1906. The day will be
clear, of course, the sunshine warm, the breeze refreshing, the wa-
ter as blue as the sky above, except where it lashes into foam at the prow,
or stretches away in a broad white streak from the stern.
Down the river, past the City right merrily will we go. Tugs and steam-
ers will pass us shrilling their cheery salutes, perhaps we may turn them
out a yell, the spirit will not be lacking.
A shorttrip down the Jersey coast will bring us to Sandy Hook and
the big guns. ' There we shall hear the most deafening noises we ever heard
in our lives-with cotton in our ears, our mouths open, and standing on our
toes. Then we shall return to West Point and discuss the Ordnance and the
Heavy Artillery until time to go to Gettysburg, this will be by rail and in
May-May, think of it!
To wander over that famous old battlefield will indeed be a privilege.
Perhaps we shall not have forgotten the 27,000 loaded rifles found after the
battle, nor the musket containing twenty cartridges. It may be that such
a thought will intrude itself upon our memory, or, lost in contemplation of
the country over which Pickett made his famous and gallant charge, we may
even forget that graduation is but a stone's throw away.
Three days shall we spend on that historic ground, 'Hconsecrated by
the lives of our countrymenf' We may perhaps be so fortunate as to be
able to listen to that renowned orator, who so glowingly paid tribute to the
valor of his comrades, and won such favor in the eyes of our esteemed prede-
cessors, the Class of IQO5. We may perhaps meet and defeat the famous
Gettysburg baseball nine.
We know we shall enjoy those three days, and the home coming will
not be the bitter that has heretofore spoiled all the sweet such trips may
contain, for graduation will be too near, and under its exhilirating prox-
imity nothing could be bitter, everything must be sweet.

Well, this lasted a Weary time, until finally our first graduation

one of them on us. Then We Went out not knowing any better, and
strung our innocent classmates into taking dances on the card We
Were so laboriously making out, that is the Way lots of feuds start.
It makes one Wonder who got the Worst of it-the plebe Who traded
guard tours With an upper classman so the latter could go to the hop,
or the plebe that dragged for a first classman. But at that, those of
us Who got to go had a good time, and danced, or tried to dance,
for the first time in over a year-and some of us for the first time
in our lives. Cullum Hall in our eyes that night rivaled in splendor
the fairy palaces that imagination in our childhood days loved to
fancy. HOW chests Were throvvn out and chins defiantly

missions! Yes, and When the hop was over and We Were discussing
it over a last skag before turning in, We had to agree that We cadets
were certainly regular " divils" with the ladies.
Yearling camp is an endless riot of drill, guard duty, and hops.

that makes a man miss a hop is doubly cursed. The hops, next to

the days the Tac Department impotently gnashes its teeth because
old Jupiter Pluvius has knocked a chunk out of the drill program,
are the things that make yearling camp bearable. It is then that the
festive yearling improves his steps and becomes the graceful dancer
that, according to the West Point novel, all cadets are. But before
that perfection is reached, there comes a period when the neophyte
is an object of horror on the hop room floor, to be shunned by friend
and foe alike. There are those cadets who imagine dancing is an
energetic sort of human billiards and try to carrom off as many
couples as possible during an evening-and those that with grimly
clenched jaw and remorseless eye gallop madly up and down like
the Juggernaut crushing all who have not the agility to keep out
of their paths. Then there are those who owe their introduction
to the joys of oscillating to their reprehensible habit of bending
their left arms at the elbow instead of holding them straight out at
the prescribed angle of sixteen degrees with the horizontal.
But far be it from.us to destroy the tender illusion entertained
by so many fair maids as to the Terpsichorean superexcellence of
the cadet. Rather let us turn and regard for a moment the factor
that makes the hops so enjoyable for the cadets themselves-the
femmes, of course.
The types are few, the individuals many. Highest ranking
among them all, at least in her own eyes, is the Post femme, blase
and tolerantly amused-making out her own card from among the
P. Sfs who have achieved her favor, and overlooking with super-
cilious indifference those cadets lacking the entree to Post society.
Then there is the cadet girl. There are many of her, from the
new one of sixteen cadetless summers to the veteran of n+2 bell
button campaigns. Some cadet girls grow to be regular institutions
and are venerated as such-their praises are sung in the Hundredth
Night play-and the only place where they do not appear is on the
skin list. Some are wise and ugraduatev with the class they came
in with, and some are foolish and are handed down from class to
class-like the one that remembers when Sep Pendleton was a
plebe. Finally, there is the femme who is up for her first hop. She
generally comes from Miss Ducrot,s school at Manorhurst-on-the-
Bluff, and, to hear her talk, she has attained the zenith of her am-
bitions when she dances with a real live cadet for the Hrst time.
She is intensely interested in everything military, she asks innum-
erable questions, the next day she returns home laden with bell
buttons, and, if she is sufficiently good-looking, with sundry vows of
Ee HOWITZER 229
eternal devotion breathed into her eager ears by the impressionable
cadets she has met.
In second class year hops become of less importance in the
cadetls life than they have been heretofore. The furlough hop is
the closing scene of his eventful vacation. The second classman
regards it more as the funeral of a past happiness than as the birth
of a new one. Later, when he has shaken himself into his old rut,
the football hops come in a more joyful guise. They have an indi-
viduality of their own, they are more frequented, and at these hops
the prettiest femmes are seen-numbers of them, never so proud as
when on the arm of a battered gridiron warrior-the batter-eder the
better. Harry Torney and Ray Hill were always fortunate in having
their features most picturesquely misplaced after every game, and
thus won feminine favorfor themselves.
With first class camp comes the acme of spooning. The first
classmen are the cocks of the walk. They are the biggest things
Within the horizon, until the Tac Department takes a hand in the
game, the tacs are the only ones who shrivel the dignity ofthe three-
stripers. But in the spooning game, these same three-stripers hold
all the trumps, they take all the tricks. At the hops the near-
graduates lord it over every one else, the hops are distinctly theirs,
and the ever-prevalent, welcome thought of "never again" adds to
The crowning glory of hops, as of the cadet's spooning, is of
course the brilliant Graduation Hop. As the cadets, hops begin
with the graduation hop, so do they end: Cullum is filled with fond
papas and mammas chaperoning bevies of fiendish femmes. ln
their faces shines the pride and happiness they feel in the success of
their own particular lad in gray, who on the morrow is to receive
the reward of four long years of toil. And many men who dance
there for the last time, dance with the one woman who is to make of
life a Paradise for them. The dances follow each other only too
fleetingly, and great as is the relief of the first classmen on reaching
the end of their many trials, toward the close of the evening, a feeling
of unexpected regret and even sadness comes over them as they
realize that here cadet hops end for them. They are looking at
Cullum's unrivaled splendor for the last time through cadet eyes,
they may attend other hops, but never again as cadets.
Finally, to the strains of Army Blue, the graduating class
dance the last dance. The recall goes, and a chapter in their lives
is closed-the brightest one in their cadet days. So long as they
live, they will not-they cannot-forget their cadet hops.

The first act opens at a scene outside the Press Them Inn at Sheeps-
head Bay. This is in the morning and a number of summer girls are seen
Waking the sleeping innkeeper and chiding him about the scarcity of men at
his resort, so extensively advertised.
This occasions the innkeeper to tell the ladies of the expected appear-
ance of the Duke and Duchess du Paty du Clam. The Duke is a loud ,type
of man who has tried everything and found nothing in it. He tells this in
song. The Duchess, on the other hand is anything but bored, but, being a
member of a Worthy family of Quakers, is a little slow. The Duke and
Duchess are prone to quarrel.
The Duchess on her arrival meets the actress, Thea, Who tells her to
flirt, play the races and be more gay if she Would hold the Duke's attention.
This advice occasions several amusing Hirtations on the part of the Duch-
ess, one being with a jockey, McGinnis by name, whom the Duke has
brought along with him.
The principal character, Captain Pumpernickle, hails from West Point.
He brings the First Class from the Academy down to Sheepshead. The plot
of the play centers about one large pearl, which the Captain has obtained
from the Sultan of Yoho, giving the Sultan his note for it. This note is long
overdue so the,Sultan sends tvvo envoys to collect.
These envoys come in contact with a strolling player, Kimono, Who
seeing the large revvard offered for the return of the pearl, engages a band
of criminals to murder the Captain.
The rascals undertake the crime. They beset the Captain after a din-
ner at the inn. The Captain finds out they are of the house of "Cut and
Slash," this house he maintains is but a branch of the house of"Skin and
Con," of Which he is chief member. Therefore they do not kill him.
The pearl has in the meantime been given to the actress, Thea, in a
Wager. .The Captain bet it on the Duke's horse "Hydrant," who was run
in the race ofthe afternoon. The Duke bribed the jockey to lose the race
and let "Silverheels" Win. The reason for this is not made evident.
There are With the strolling player a Count and a Curate. The Count
is a broken down Frenchman, and is a former husband of Thea,s. The
strolling player finds this out, and, in return for keeping this secret, gets
the pearl from the actress. It is taken from him by the Curate and sent
back to the Sultan through the envoys.
The play is a vaudeville purely, and many characters are brought in,
all becoming more or less involved in the plot. Perfect continuity is not
aimed at nor is it necessary.
The time of Writing this is too early to say anything about the indi-
viduals in the play, and, as for saying anything about the production as
a Whole, this too would be anticipatory.
The music Was selected from many operas that had long runs several
years ago. -

' EIN name vas Hans Hohenstaufen. I vas von day come to a place
dey call Vest Point, und vas report meinself to die Guard House,
but I vish I vasn't. A hupper classman just den ask me vat vas
mein name. Now I taught dat dis vas pooty goot of him, so I made von
pig grab vor to shake his hand und said, "Ya! Dat's me, Hans Hohen-
staufenf' But he jump at me und yelled, "Mn Hohenstaufen, Sinn I
didn,t forget dat pooty soon quick neider. Den he told me to get mein chin
in und traw mein shoulders back, und sait, "Stand up all ofer!" Vell, I
get mein chin in, und traw mein shoulders back, und ask, "Vas I stand up F"
' Vell dey put me in die "Beast Barracks," und, as I vas moving mein
madrice, und broom, und chair, und vaterbucket from die Cadet Store, a
Coporal-dem dings mit doo stripes on der arms-yellt in mein ear, "Touble
Dime!" Vell I just didn't know vat dime dat vas, but dat Corporal run
behint me und kept a-yelling dill I taught dat he vould bust-den I run too.
You just bet I knows vat "Touble Dimei' vas already yet.
Und I vas get to bed dat night! Und a trum beat dree dimes, und dey

"Vy vas it dat dey didn't cut you up vor timber?" "Vell,,' says I, "I

"No, Sir," says I. Den he ask me vere dey vas. "At home crying, Sir,',
says I. He den got as mad as ever vas, und I got mein chin in more furder

"But harkl-that heavy sound breaks in once more
And nearer, clearer, louder than beforeln
To the z1djutantGene1'aZ of the Farrar:-
SIR:-I have -the honor to submit the following report of the operations
of the Gray force, under my command, in a tactical problem on the evening
of October 30, IQO5.
To meet the requirements of the situation, I made the following dis-
Qn my left I placed a battery of position consisting of the ISt Division
ballista and the 4th Division onager. The center was held by the catapults
of the 5th, 6th, 9th, and Ioth Divisions, the right, by the 12th Division
The problem commenced at 9.35 P. M. At about this time one of the
units of the Blue force was sighted on a slight elevation in our front, known
as the "Poop Deck." Our advanced line immediately opened fire with
talcum-box shrapnel, backed up by a few rounds of area rocks and boiler
house coal. A desultory fire was kept up for twenty minutes. This seemed
to disconcert the enemy, for he immediately telephoned for re-inforcements.
At 9.55 P. M. firing along the entire line was stopped in order to deceive
the enemy as to our real intentions. I-Ie was evidently awaiting develop-
ments as he had made no attempt to advance.
Precisely at IO P. M., the 9th Division Automobile I-Iorn sounded
"Commence Firingf' In obedience to this signal, the 2d Division opened
on the enemy's position with a twelve-inch muzzle loading tin water bucket
filled with scrap iron and broken stone, followed up by a rapid fire of small
missiles, directed at long range, against the boiler house roof.
Shortly after IO o'clock I was informed that the Commander of the
Blue force had arrived on the scene of action, after an exciting bicycle ride
from his headquarters four hundred yards in the rear. Like the hero of
Gettysburg, he hoped to turn impending defeat into glorious victory,
He immediately decided on a plan of action and issued the necessary
orders through his chief of staff, who, until his arrival, had been in command.
His first move was to make a reconnaissance of our position. To do this
he sent out reconnaissance patrols consisting of twenty-four sub-division
inspectors. As these parties approached our lines with the evident inten-
tion of developing our fire, and thereby locating our batteries, We ceased
firing and took to cover. A determined effort was also made to capture our
field music-the Automobile Horn. This move on the part of the Blue
force had been anticipated, however, and we were able to take the necessary
measures to prevent the loss of such a valuable source of annoyance to our
opponents. At the end of a quarter of an hour, the reconnaissance parties,
Re HOWITZER 253
having obtained no information of any consequence, withdrew to report the
result of their observations. As soon as our front was clear, we delivered a
telling fire of empty listerine bottles. This fire extended along the entire
line and was very effective. The 6th and oth divisions, especially, did splen-
did execution, having previously determined very accurately the exact posi-
tion of the strip of concrete pavement lying in our immediate front. The
enemy, in reply, sent forward heavy lines of skirmishers, which, in order to
escape our missiles, advanced by rushes until they had gained the protection
afforded by the porch of barracks.
The Commander of the Blues now doubled the number of his recon-
naissance parties. His tactics was defective, however, in that he withdrew
them every fifteen minutes in order to receive reports. These withdrawals
were the signal for our men to jump from cover and open fire. We were
obliged to order up our reserve ammunition, consisting of building stone
and such bay rum bottles as had not been previously expended. The twelve-
inch tin bucket had been put out of action early in the engagement, and this
loss had seriously weakened our left, but a well-directed fire was kept up
by the 5th, 6th, oth, and roth divisions.
The Blue Commander, having observed our tactics, changed his own.
As the Grays outnumbered his force somewhat, he began to impress Gray
men into his service. The peculiar nature of his position permitted him to
adopt this course of action, which caused serious breaks in our line and
greatly reduced the effectiveness of our fire action. The opposing commander
continued the method of recruiting until about three-fourths of our entire
force had been drafted and enrolled under his standard.
As further operations on the part of the Grays seemed to be unnecessary,
we retired for the night.
The following points are to be noted in this problem:
IO The service of Security and Information was well performed. We
were kept constantly informed of the enemy's movements, and were at no
time in the dark as to his intentions.
20 The men made good use of all available cover. When necessary
they took advantage of it with celerity. -
30 The fire discipline was excellent. The supply of ammunition was
ample, but the division commanders used it only at the proper times and
where the best results were to be obtained.
Fire action alone was used, the Blue force never getting near enough to
render shock action necessary or expedient.
We suffered but one casualty, viz., one man captured.
I might mention by name some of those who were most conspicuous in
this problem, but when all were so eificient, comparisons might be invidious.

Commanding the Grayr.

Day in Camp
"Oh down with the Hell cats' hated crew!
Down with the reveille gun!

Of their drums and fifes are done!
Drill me and march me to Kingdom Come,
Soiree me 'till I canlt seeg
But only one thing I ask when I die-
God save me from Reveillel "
HERE forced itself into my sleep-dimmed senses a vague feeling of
unrest. Some fearful thing was about to happen, something which
would not be put off. It seemed to be tapping-ceaselessly,
insistently, cruelly rapping-at the door of my weary consciousness. Ah-
the reveille gun! Reveille was sounding, The inevitable early morning sun
was beaming into my tent, its slanting rays finding their way through the
interlacing branches of the trees in the general parade. "Ah, well," I
thought with a sigh as I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes, uno dead-beating
The bright morning had grown to burning noon. We were sitting around
on the shady side of the street, whiling away the half-hour of leisure vouch-
safed to us, From infantry drill to artillery drill, from the plain to the
target range, we had been driven all the morning, and now this little rest
seemed good. Willy Rose was using his hammer with great effect, Charley
Rockwell was hunting in the back of his tent for his canteen, Pot Lewis,
dripping with perspiration, dust and tanibark conspicuously covering one
side of his expansive frame, was telling us between gasps what fun the bull-
pen is, while Katy Donahue, a tin cup in his hand, was calling up visions of
lVIartin,s or the Beaux Arts. The stillness of a sweltering summer noon
had descended upon camp, broken only by mournful sounds from Gat'ewood's
piccolo, which floated over to us from a, distance and subdued, though
insistent, whines from Ardery's cornet. From way off somewhere a phono-
graph was quavering:
"Fo-rgott-e-n we-el if for-getting-"
Suddenly a single voice sounded from a distant corner cfcan'p:'4Turn out
the mailecarrie-e-erslu Instantly the cry was taken up by a hundred
voices that sprang fromapparently nowhere, swelling, dying, and swelling
again till it grew into a wild weird yell that resembled an Indian war-whoop.
The stillness was broken, camp sprang into sudden life.
Re HOWITZER 257
'We had come back from dinner. The heat had grown almost intolerable
and we could see the air quiver with it out across the cavalry plain. Standing
there in ranks it was infernal. A few plebes, their faces streaming, were
already turning a peculiar, slightly mottled, shade ofwhite. How long would
we be kept standing in line listening to the adjutant reading orders ? If only
we could be dismissed before that drop of sweat started down my back!
Slowly, surely it was sliding-sliding-Perhaps this was the last order!
"OH71ce of the Cadet Store-m-m-mln continued the adjutant,
droning through the long list of names. The drop slipped down my back,
leaving a ,tickling sensation behind it. Oh, how I longed to tear off this
sticky coat and get under a cool shower! It was, I thought, looking at it
absolutely without predjudice, an unpardonable cruelty to keep three hun-
"Dismiss your companies!',
is is 1? lil
Cooled by a shower, in comfortable gray shirts and dirty white trousers,
we were headed for a certain spot that we well knew, not far from "Flirta-
tion.', Here it was cool, here we could be free, could smoke as many "high-
life skagsn as we wanted, and could moisten our parched throats with
something good and cold. 'Here were crackers, cheese, candy, olives, all
those things for which everyone has braved many a "con.,' Up through
the rocks we climbed, under the shade of the great, cool trees, while a soft
breeze lightly stirred their whispering leaves. Presently we came to a slightly
wider space in the little valley where candy and skag-boxes and empty
olive-bottles bore witness to previous parties. Conveniently-shaped rocks
were scattered about as if for the express purpose of affording comfortable
seats, of which we immediately took advantage. Wliile we were sitting thus
alternately expressing our august views of things in general and indulging
in close harmony, the afternoon slipped by almost, it seemed, before it had
begun. Back to camp we wandered, singing all the way, our spirits seemed
somewhat relieved and were now revelling in the satisfaction of "Bring the
wagon home, John," with appropriate gestures. Camp was not so bad,
But now had come the evening, softly falling, a summer-'s evening with
its slow-fading twilight, its perfumes and its mystery that lent to camp a
peculiar romance. Away across the river to the east, the sky paled with a
gentle radiance, a presage of the rising moon. Here and there, as the
darkness gathered, there shone out the home-like gleam of a candle, and
I heard from my tent the faint tinkle of a mandolin accompanied now and
then by the strumming of a guitar. Tonight, I remembered, was the night
of the "color-linen concert, and already, out at the visitor's seats across the
grass, Huttered the white dresses of several clusters of girls. I went out there
258 7Ze HOWITZER
to listen. Camp-stools were scattered about under the trees in groups,
occupied by visitors, more of whom continued to come in groups of twos
and threes. Some people, evidently strangers, stopped to look at the guard
tent in which a pale, worried-looking UO. D" in his red sash was bending
over a desk littered with papers, or at the sentinel who was wearily trudging
up and down, his riHe glisteningias he passed the lamp post. A hum of
conversation was rising, broken occasionally by a peal of laughter. Suddenly
this was hushed as the soft picking of mandolins and guitars sounded melod-
iously across the grass. And now 'a voice was singing. Sweetly the sound
Hoated out upon the evening, and as I listened it awakened strange thoughts
of far-off things, of forgotten lands bright with a half-remembered beauty,
of faces once well known but long since vanished, of-
Bang, bang, bang! The drums and Hfes shrieked out stridently. Quick-
ly the visitors hastened away, for tattoo, unrelenting, drives them all off
and summons us back to our tents.
Lying on my cot, the moonlight streaming in the open front of my tent,
it seemed as if peace had descended upon camp, and up through the dark
branches of the trees I could see the starry sky, bending calmly over us, far,
far away. So would it bend over us when we lay exhausted after some future
battle in a distant land, so would it bring peace to tired menpwith many
weary marches still before them. Yet not another summer would it bend
over these same men encamped together, for some would be scatteredg
some might even be-but camp is good-and sleep comes quickly to tired
Faint, slow notes of a bugle blowing taps were mingled with my dreams.
The day was done.

Certain questions having long been subjects of dispute, THE HOWITZER
modestly presents to all of an inquiring turn of mind the answers ofrepre-
sentative members of the First Class, not, indeed, hoping to clear up these
vexed problems, but only that the interested reader may Hnd among the
answers that concordance of other views with his own that is so comforting to
him who loves to hold forth against all upon such momentous issues as those
Why dia' you some here?
This question, oddly enough, is one which most of the class found very
diH'icult to answer. It seldom fails to bring a look of mild reproach Cto speak
politelyj to the face of him who casts about for a fitting reply. For instance:
Echo answers-, Why ?-Brett.
Was making a tour of the world, and this is the last place.-Rare.
It happened so long ago that I have forgotten.-Bartlett, G. G.
But then, there are those whose answers come quickly and without

What is the bigger? sofree you were efuer fn?
The answers to this question show a startling consensus of opinion:
The good ship "Pegasus," the VVasliington trip, the St. Louis Exposition,
and the Practice Nlarch, have come in for nearly all the votes. There are,
however, one or two impartial ones, like Qiseau Byrd, who remarks with
his usual pertinency:
"I have-er-attended so many that-eah-T am unable to discriminatef'
And a few remember other especial grievances:

Here let us remark that modesty is a gentle virtue. And we are modest.
Under lVIOdesty's sheltering veil we hide our elation when we get a tenth or
two, Modesty screens our burning anger, our hot sense of wrong when we
fess. So what do we answer to this question? Almost to a man we reply
modestly, "Perfectly naturalf,

Did dine upon the Post.
The guests were met, the feast was set,
And all did praise their host.
"The wine was red," the time was sped,
Eftsoons they rose to go,
But "Nay'l said one, " We are undone,
That clock ls an hour slow."
I lVith hang-dog look, their leave they took,
And cursed both straight and tall,
But the young P.S., he smote his breast,
For he heard the loud first-call.

For no sadder sight can come to light

How TO BRING THE BATTALION TO ATTENTION
Twisting your trunk to the right as far as- you can without danger of
sustaining internal injury, glare Hercely at the left flank of the Battalion
and sound off "Tall" Then get action with a torsional force in the oppo-
site direction until your extreme fiber has reached its elastic lirnitg give the
right Hank a Fiery glance, and say "Li-on I" Regain your equilibrium by
a half twist to the frontg let the companies in the center know by a stony
stare that they have not any bluff on yau,and bellow,"Ten-shonelnchopping
the "shone', off as short as you can without breaking your "g" string.
This will be found very effective, and ought to bring you at least a 2.8.

ANTON ZWINGE was born in Westphalia, Germany, in 1840. He came to America in search of his
fortune when he Was but sixteen years old, the voyage was made in a sailing vessel and occupied more
than two months. In 1857 he enlisted in the United States Army and served five years in and around
Washington Territory. V
In 1864, when Colonel Henry M. Black was appointed Commandant of Cadets, 'gTony," who had
served under him in the West, came. with him to West Point. Here he has been ever since. He was em-
ployed by Colonel Black and later by Professors Kendrick, Andrews, Weir and Tillman.
Sixteen years ago he entered the service of the Academy as boot-black, and since then has constantly
been employed in that position. He is a master in the art of polishing shoes and never forgets the heels.
The W hite Man's Burden
Reprinted from the Furlougli Book of the'Class of 1906
Take up the White Manls burden,
Nor hark what others dog
The road is long and Weary,
Your fellow-travellers fewg
The sport of tae and skinoid,
The butt of every quill,-
You'll have to be a martyr
To be a White Man, Bill!
Take up the White lVIan's burden,
And do the White Man' stuntg
You may not have a gallery
Of femmes to hear you grunt,
You may not Wear the chevrons
Nor drive a squad at drill,-
A plain sleeve's no dishonor
If you're a White Man, Bill!
Take up the White Man's burden,
And live the hVhiz'e Man's life,
Nor sell your soul for chevrons,
Nor quill upon your "Wifeg"
You'd better be a private,
Respected by the Corps,
Then to Wear all the chevrons
That quilloid ever Wore!
Take up the White Manls burden,
And drag it to the end,
A thousand tons of boot-lick
Won't buy a single friendg
So do your duty fearlessly,
Nor cringe, nor crawl, nor quill,
Be you buck or be you captain,
Be a White Man, Bill!

POINTS gf SUPERIORITT
Stop is positive in its action, and holds the cylinder in perfect alignment with the barrel, regardless of any other part of
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 the small springs are spiral, thereby preventing the danger of breaking, a defect common to all small flat springs.
Lock studs are screwed into the lr line, have collars raised above its surface, and, in conjunction with steel bosses milled
on the side plate, hold all working parts central and prevent lriction.
Lockingpin works in hardened collar set into frame.
Hardened collar set into extractor and raised above the ratchet teeth. This collar impinges 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 cylinder mnnot be thrown out when the arm is cocked, or the arm cocked
when the cylinder is out, thereby making it absolutely impossible to discharge the arm when not fully locked.
Strong solid extractor rod, and boss on barrel to hll space between barrel and rod when pistol is closed, to prevent bend-
ing oi rod.
Hammer nose so shaped that the blow will be in direct line with the cartridee, thus preventing the copper from being
driven towards the bottom of primer, as by the usual raking blow of the solid hammer nose.
Barrel screwed into place, brought to perfect alignment by multiplying guages,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 barrel.
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 opera ted with one hand.
Convenience in assembling and disassembling.
The head of extractor and extractor stem are made in one piece. lt is therefore impossible for the extractor head to turn
Forward cylinder locking device which holds the cylinder in perfect alignment with barrel and insures increased
