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. - 'Die HOWITZER Qlhe Qlorps illhe Gorps! 1lBareheaoeiJ Qalute itg with eyes np, thanking our abou 'dlhat ine of the Qllorps are treaoing Where they of the fllorps hahe troo.

L' teemed predecessors that any further repetition on our part Would be useless, and Would of necessity fall upon deaf ears. - 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." And the really hates 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 BRADSHAW, JAMES S., "Brad," "Broad-head," Super- ior, Wis.

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 Frohman. f2Ze HOWITZER 45 67:36, B1-1 -11fg IQ. 87400 BRETT, MCRGAN L., "Tow," "Daddy,,' "Sue,,' Cleve- land, Ohio.

After successfully running the machine in Indiana and the Mich- igan Military Academy primaries, he descended on us in June, 1901. By looking at his serene countenance,,one would never guess that behind it lay the brain that sent stocks flying upward, or the acu- men that could post definitely "in the usual place" the exact order of the ponies in the afternoon race at Gravesend. He knows person- ally every horse that ever ran from Lindsey to Major Dangeriield, and can give their pedigrees without losing a tenth.

He is a nimble pated youth and such a mighty strangler of the tenths that even a 'lgoat' would starve on the few that escape him, while his belt is well ornamented with the scalp of many a bad tenthoid, "Joe" is particularly quiet to be such a precocious youngster, and he makes a speciality of domestic tranquility, in fact, he and uWesty," his Wife, are such model cadets that it is positively discouraging to start a rough house in their neighborhood.

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.

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."

But for MP.

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.

It is doubtful though if a more persistent gatherer and dispenser of rumors can he found anywhere, for, in this particular science "Cornelius," in collaboration with joe the policeman, rivals the most gossipy sewing circle that ever sewed. His diplomatic management of the football campaign last fall put his services as a professional chaperone in wide- spread demand.

As a student, he is an earnest gleaner after the tenths, always ready. with some sort of an answer to any kind of a question, and, while we must admit that occasionally his answers are correct, it can- not be denied that "Yazoo', often shows a tendency to change the author's version. In history, for example, he used to say that he couldn't see how a trifle like 2,000 years made any difference so long as the principle remained the same.

He got an idea somewhere that a cigarette improves with age and is forever hunting around for some old "stump" to smoke in preference to a brand new "tailor-made." k'Georie" is a punster by profession and though he does usually confine himself to retailing those aged and decayed 'lgrindsw that came over in the May- flower, we ought not to object, for they say his original ones are enough to upset the strongest man's digestive apparatus. Besides being an athlete and gymnast, our friend George is quite a philosopher in his own way. One of his maxims is, "Never spoon when anybody is looking." 77242 HOWITZER 67 ffl .,-.7 Zh . v.,'- -V .. cm Ya, '4gg'q1s"5'f::--,:, V , . 2isg?Q2, wf1:-f 4.. .1 , -. -r. 1 -. ..t ,, F .mtfsgziifgga -'fl-fi '59 -me " , X 'f'-X ,, - . .-fan.: L. - 1 ' .J WAINWRIGHT, JONATHAN M., "Jim," "Skinny," Chi- cago, lll.

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- ing moment without any more damage than giving to his knees a 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. WARING, ROY F., "Nuts," HB. jf, Omaha, Neb. Corp., Actg. Serge, A.

" 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.

He has made a success of pretty much everything and will carry away everyone's best wishes in June. 7Ze HOWITZER WILDRICK, EDWARD W., "Punch," "Ned," Blairs- town, N.

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 pipe as well as the rest of us.

A tremendous bunch of bluff, is the 'iKaiser,' and he knows it too. . His ambition in times past has been to lead the Anvil Chorus, and, under the able tutelage of "Count" Gilhooly last sum- mer, he almost made good. Since then, however, what a change has come over the earth, for our sometime low-ranking buck is now a leftenant 'Kbe gad, Sir." He used to vigorously deny his Teutonic origin back in plebe year, but since meeting uDuruy,s General" he is convinced that the 'lDutch Companyw is the best company, and now claims to be a first cousin of the Hohenzollerns.

V mt .,, as . si' WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT WHEN SKINNY WAS BUT A YEARLING CORP THAT SUCH AS HE WOULD EVER BE FIRST CAPTAIN? We Will assume that the reader has seen other class histories. We of IQO6 passed through the same terrors and hardships of beast-barracks, plebe-camp, yearling riding, and second-class Wave motion that come to each and every class. Qur fears and our mis- takes Were the fears and the mistakes that have been handed down Ee HOWITZER 73 as the heritage of eighty classes that have gone before us. It is our choice, therefore, to tell you here what each year has meant to us, what have been our relations with the dispensers ofthe gold- lace decorations, our drill-masters and task-masters, what MR. HUMPHREYS WILL GUIDE THE PROJECTILE IN ITS FLIGHT record in athletics, and lastly, what have been our few pleasures. Our plebe year ended with the class smaller by twenty members. 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 Languages further depleted the Class, yet leaving those who went on furlough still more closely bound by the ties of good fellow- 1 ship that two years of hard work and a common longing hadfirmlycemented.

It has been 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 have been, as ever, the evil 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 NINETEEN HUNDRED AND SIX IN CAMP of thirty-tyvo minutes to New York, When, like "gay harbingers of spring," clad in White, We Hitted through March snoWs into Madi- 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 chevron was Won or lost by those live days of hikes, practical NINETY DEGREES IN THE SHADE TEN MINUTES TILL PARADE tactical problems and bad grub. An afternoon and evening at the horse show, a flying visit to the Watervliet Arsenal, a sail down the 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. THE GREAT WORLD LIES BEYOND FIRST CLASS MAKES cs. all s--fa'-we is X l' X MQ: l' ' f f A t f r ,f if 7 a s f .7-KA. YDEV 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 "auspicious occasionf, 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. s 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 witnesses attest. 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 Green. h 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- ford. 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 even tempered. 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 for him. 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 THE PALACE OF THE KING Re HOWITZER 85 --1 new-mwfe-1vw5ezeSs'zv-vQ:f-vcu:a:r+z-1-11--e:1w-a:m1g--V-M.:-at-1-s:-:IM-N-':.11 : . f -I L! 1532, 1... f ",- ' V. 4 . .

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 honorable mention. 86 file HOWITZER 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.

Sullice it, that We thought We had reached the haven of our hopes, and from then on, life Was to take on a permanent tint of lavender and iris. Delightful dream! But no sleep is Without its oWn particular reveille. 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 journey With our Old Men of the Sea. Re HOWITZER a 95 Beasts we truly were-for civilized man in all his broad- cloth was not dis- jointed like one of these. Here wewere told, "Accuse not natureg she hath done her part. Do thou thine." NOT QUITE WARM ENOUGH The Com. had seen one or two classes enter, so he lent his minions to the occasion and Nature did not toil alone. Too soon We learned the intricacies of the worship of the great god, Drill, under the spreading doughnut trees we made Python himself envious by our sinuous contortions. But after an aeon or two, we did move to camp. First relief. Let us draw the proverbial curtain before the tortures we under- went, with only one day of respite-the day the Juliets arrived. For then it was that we learned what prosperous things are the outcome of small beginnings, then we had a comfortable, cozy feeling withlourselves because there were beings in grey, more Wooden, more depraved, more gross than ourselves. And now to barracks, "tho' sleep I shan't, I fear." It wasn't - 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 something. Often 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!

Yearling camp Was a copy of all the yearling camps that have been since the nucleus of protoplasm Was a plebe.

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.

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 my-51 j- 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. 106 72.5 HOWITZER ln spite of the fact that their favorite haunts had been sprinkled 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- cated Where Cupid, victorious over Mars, Whispered his terms of truce. ' Wwmmuwsaww 6552543 NUMBER ONE A MISS 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 lie HOWITZER4 107 completed. We would then pitch camp and proceed to demonstrate our proficiency in the 'domestic sciences-cooking, eating, and spoon- ing, While the admiring natives looked on and nodded their approval.

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. . 4. -. 1- ' f "i v 5 ii'1,155'15:T?-.F"'?315?f?J-HKELQV"nf-.iz--'.V.-"V'J- VT:"1:z1-2.lL'.-4v'f:-511591291-5' "" '442Si5E,?Z5',.:37' - ' 2153" "0H242521322'1?E?f?22'EG?Ez51:33:3'f-i1Ej:1V52-32:9-i.V" -52.112-drag'-" '1" - 1- f ,f-:,:j.d4:?ff-52-f-iff-9l"',.V ,"':, 'A V - if .azz , ,.. ,,5a'41,?, - V .. 4 X 5" ' THE ORDNANCE LABORATORY CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND NINE 1' "gv ':i?E--953211.

Guess We all remember that beautiful gvfffffi A. 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 MORTAR DRILL 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, and a short time to take it easy between drills Was even allowed usg but in camp, it seemed to be a heinous crime to be found not at Work on our equipment during all of that Hsparel' time. Where We used to have a fevv Corps gently Correcting us, We novv had, in every upper classman, at self-appointed instructor in all matters, even the . 'iff' T It RQ '- l 1. C " COMPANY PLEBES most trivial. We learned that our habitual gait Was to be the D. T., that our guns Would not be clean until August 28, and that tattoo Was not the time to get out our Cots and forget our troubles in the gentle arms of Morpheus. Tvvo days after We landed in camp, We had our first Saturday inspection, and vvere pleasantly surprised to find that, in the eyes of the Tac at least, our belts were not "slimy," and our guns were not 'call over red rust." That same evening vve Watched Qby order? a little band of heroes from among our number march on guard. We eagerly sought information from them next day as to hovv it i' ima HOWITZER 117 felt to be responsible for the safety of the U. S. C. C. Their reports were quite reassuring. Sooner or later, we all got our chance at it, and learned what to do if the lVlary Powell, the Queen of Sheba, a femme, or a battery of artillery came on our post, simultaneously or otherwise. Then came that memorable hve-days' hike known as the Practice March, though it was never quite obvious whether it was intended to give practice to the football squad or to the unfortunate mortals who were to walk the area during the next few months. On the first day out, a bee hive was discovered in the rear of C Co.'s GUARD MOUNTING IN CANIP stacks, and a few enterprising individuals who opened fire on it 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, "-ruRN ou'r THE GUARD!-THE oFFloER OF THE nAY:'- enlivened by those delectable soirees, known to the T. D. as "tactical problems," We hit West Point again on the 23d. The old cadet mess never looked so good as When We marched in that day, for prunes and "goo', had come to be esteemed as great deli- cacies, and blue mud a genuine treat during the preceding Week, even slum and hash gained a temporary .foothold in popular favor. Three days after our return, We struck tents, and, amid shouts of "never againln plebe camp came to an end. With tears in our eyes, We marched avvay from the spot Where We had spent so many summer evenings, and established ourselves in barracks once more. We found the latter less disagreeable than they had been fZZe HOWITZER 119 two months before, although the furlough men received us warmly, and obliged us to sound off our almost forgotten preds, P. C. S's, and so forth. In addition, we were required to spec the second class from alpha to omega. ' All our former hardships and tribulations were effaced from our remembrance when once we started in with the mysterious C. Smith and the formidable Big Green B. S. By the time of the first general transfer, we had learned that if QB-450:00 , it may be clearly 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. Q E x .

WILLIFORD 7Ze HOWITZER 123 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 Academy. 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 the institution. The membership is now more than 1600. -tiif '--- A -V. V . ef-vrfw .-:'-'-3rr:-'2y"s:-'- Y' -mm.--x-If we V - fs-xexv. - 4. - V- Qu- - ss f - .

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 ground gainers. 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 fight. 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 126 7Ze'I-IOVVITZER 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 , 7-7 farm., . 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 contest. 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. ..-. A.

" Y H .T L a - t , a . 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 by unseen. 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 any respect. 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 the score. 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 per trial. 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 opponents. 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 the goal. 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, 7Ze HOWITZER 135 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. PHILADELPHIA NORTH AMERICAN PRESIDENT C1-11-zims, BUT M1Do11:s FA11. TO DOVVN TEAM rnom VVEST Pomr In the presence of the President of the United States, a great number of Army and Navy officers, government oflicials and fashionable persons from New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore the Army and Navy teams fought each other to a standstill yesterday. Score, 6 to 6, with the honor. 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 the score. PHILADELPHIA LEDGER 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.

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 graduates. Capt. Lytle Brown, Corps of Engineers, has been elected baseball representative to replace Captain Kromer.

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 MCWhOfIC1'. 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. ARMY NAVY Pos. ab. r. Lb. p.o. a. e. Pos. a.h. r. Lb. p.o. a. e.

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." l F. E. WILLIFOFID.

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. , Nineteen-live again Won the meet and thereby equaled the record of '96 of Winning four successive banners.

F it were not for the con squad's regular practice at four-thirty every afternoon, per- haps We could not attain such a high stan- dard in the basketball World. The fact that the conoids play with Marquis of Queensbury rules and variable numbers on a side, doesn't change the name of the game at all. Itis Last year Hetrick and Merchant got up an excellent team which fur- nished the Corps and the Post with considerable Saturday afternoon excite- ment and amusement. Columbia, who was not defeated all the year, es- caped being beaten by thenarrovv margin of four points. The Second Signal Corps of Brooklyn Was vanquished in a game remarkable for its team Work and accurate goal shooting. This year the team is to be trained by Jim Temple. Coaches are to be obtained from outside, and, with this assistance, We hope to succeed in the ambitious schedule which has been Schedule for 1904-'05 ARMY OPP. prepared.

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 iw slpmf 'fl ll QL ltllllllilllilii . ,Ja 5 . ,' v j - . me .' '-if 4. -QT "ml .fs - , .' . , N, . . .

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 the corps. J OINSTERU 6 I ll LECT C X SQ 1 1. President, WALTER E. DONAHUE Secretary, JAMES A. O,CONNOR 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. .15 vi.. .SR .,. .3 'N-.m .QE v. :Q-.. ...N X Rss .. .

' 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.

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- mail , ff.-ff '., RI: PARADE ' 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 OFFICERS' ROW J Wg f 5 D M "'.:AAn ,f FORT PUT S Wie HOWITZER 187 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 would read, and soon would be heard Pot Lewis, high tenor and "Col." Sturgillls deep bass ringing forth-"Ba-a-ta-al-yu-un, H-O-O-LT," "P-e-e-rade RESTQ' or "Compan-e-e Atte-en- shun." Schway-be, almost crazed with jealousy, set up an opposition 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 188 Ee HOWITZER results. Tennis, always a prominent feature in the recreations of camp, was quite as popular as ever, and the playing was of unusual excellence. 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 OFF POST . 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 THe HOWITZER 189 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 Was no chance to Usilently steal aWay,', even if We had Wanted to do so. We yelled for " IQO6,,, for " I9o8,,' for anything and every- thing. Then We gave our linal b U-Rafi Raxl U-Rix Rixl U. S. M. A. ' . I9o6!l Never againli Never again!!

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 midshipmen. . 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 the day. 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. -X ' N fx 1 ' ' '- fic s.. ff 5 ' s , t t1NkETl?5ill,QlLlTAlN 3,9 521' af Z L at 3 'fwsii' ia 1 i H5510 lvl Q AE fi ff HE first "Personally Conducted" undertaken by IQO6 took place on May 19, IQO5, when we descended en mane 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 destination. 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. .'J Q " A if. -1 5:2 it " M . 1.2 . f 'fi' fi iff, W - e - " 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 Hgrubf, Every tent was a small supply house, as fast as one was emptied another was invaded. They made us eat, they poked it down us, and then ran for more, When we were physically unable to swallow another crumb, the brou ht drinkables-all soft, and after that, smokables. Never 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 his life. 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.

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 ear. 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' Twelve forlorn objects at length reached Marquand Hall, a fine dormitory attached to the seminary at Northfield. College Re HOWITZER 199 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 THE CROWD 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. 200 'Ee HOWITZER 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 manner. 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. KENDRICK HALL f ,7,,. -V . . ,. -e , .,X, V, . f A5 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. 7ZeiHOWITZER 203 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. 204 The HOWITZER i Then We made haste to reach the Wagon, each to receive his little package. Lo and behold!-one egg and three dry sand- Wiches. Think of it!-to be brought into the Wilderness and choked to death. . But We Were far too CAMP GANOP-Us hungry to state our grievances there. In groups of twos and threes, K-dets could be seen collecting in the shade of an old apple tree, or looking for shelter under a spread- ing chestnut. Soon a little White bag Was pulled from each gray shirt, and the famous bull skag brought peace and ,contentment to the heart of each. -' k 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 A BOUNTIFUL REPAST 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 retrospection. fl.,T.- , A1 , ,L- -1-U: Qin' -'- -' ' 'T 3"f W ""' L?"

This Goat dwelt in Camp Edgerton, and, when there was Nothing to do, would Sleep and Sleep. The time when there was nothing to Do rarely came in Camp Edgerton, 'but between drills, especially before Artillery drill, this Goat was won't to Pipe. "Veri- ly," said he, "I Qpine that there his nothing in the Life of a Soldier for me, Infantry I don't want, Cavalry l wouldn't have, and Ar- tillery is worse than the Two combinedf, So the Goat lay Down and slept on. It came to pass, However, in the middle of August in the year nineteen Hundred and Five, that the first Class, the one to which the Goat belonged, was taken to Fort Totten. Here it was that the X HE ARFZIVES i7Ze HOWITZER 207 Goat Was given every opportunity to ln- spect all the Wonder- ful achievements in Modern coast Artil- lery. Qften the Goat Would Wander out Alone to the Batteries and stare in Avved Silence at the Mon- strous guns, HI Opine,', said he to himself, "that one could not live on a A THE PLUNGE Ship if such batteries Were trained Upon her," and so he Would inspect and Inspect these large Engines of Modern Warfare. ' A Now ithappened that this Goat must Attend tvvo drills Daily. 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 floated over the vast expanse of the Blue, and Was Wont to say, H My! is it Not marvelous Fl' Then a voice would sound, " Commence tracking," telephone bells Would Ring, and down at the Batteries the men Would Work Harder and harder. Then again the same voice Would sound, "Cease tracking"-"Target lost," and all would be still, and the silence of Death would Spread over the Land of Totten. "There," said the Goat,"'that is Brull: in Songf' and Would straightvvay Whistle "Yankee Doodle Boyl' as he Stepped gaily Dovvn the Stairs. But this Was not all that the Goat Was to See. One night When the Darkness of Blackest midnight Sat upon the sea, Four gleaming Search lights Were Set to bear upon the distant Incoming ships, so that They could be tracked as by Day. Then the Goat's joy Knew no Bounds, and he Danced With Glee upon the Bank of Pitf'A," so that He loseth his Balance and rolleth Merrily among the Mortars. CAMP BATTERY MAHAN Re HOWITZER 209 Then on the following Day the 7 Goat was taken on the "General Meigs" far out into the Ocean, and - a Submarine mine was Planted, and He was brought Back again amid the Chilling drizzle of Rain and Wind, and he Was Deposited on the Grassy slope of the Bat- teries, that He might behold The Marvelous explosion amidst the Water. He waited and Waited. Then there was a Terrific sound, and a geyser projected Itself from the Bay, and Then again all was Still-like Death. Now it was that this Goat became radiant with a Glee and Rubbed violently his pw --A., Waistcoat, which was the Custom of all true Goats. "I opine that I shall Take the Heavy artillery," and he Scampered away for his Accustomed Plunge and his Favorite C1 ar. g Nextday It was Necessary for Him to return to his home at West Point. Tears of Regret made deep Furrows in his Cheeks as the "General Meigs" took him further and Further from the Land of Totten. Down uponvthe Locker in his Old Home did He sit Himself, looking the personification of Lost Hope. "Verily," said he to his yearling wife, "I opine There is Nothing like it,', and then rolled Over in Sleep. MoraZ.' Take the Heavy Artillery. -J! X X ,W ff "Nw, 'if f iw Ha .f My YS:-rs. A ., f -X' .

Cijiit., ...dem 311, K tt xJ 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 owners argued. 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 1"A"5Lle' . ' 1 THE TEAM 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. X CC Fil Tl 5,5 il h Qfaxa? , o o 0 Iggy ll ' ' A ' Extract from Colonel C. A. Bill's Organization and Tactics, Edition 1925. CHAPTER X "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 START 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 CAMP AT COLD SPRINGS 'Zia HOWITZER 217 within one hundred yards of the hostile skirmishers, then dismounted and drew lots for horse- holders, meanwhile 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 artillery, Lieutenant Foox, with great pres- ence of mind, rushed , back to Colonel Si lVlonds and reported that the enemy had opened fire with his artillery. This is a fine example of gal- lantry and bravery in action coupled With great keenness of - observation. FUN 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 g .,-? AE? L digs. He HOWITZER 219 their attention, a dis- pute arose, and a close hand-to-hand conflict ensued. Men stood on oppo- site sides oftrees and tried to get at each other, and one man, thinking he was chasing another around a tree, shot eHow himself in the hand, 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 'l'lI ll0llSE Sll0YY "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 green spats. 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 to why. 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 smiles. 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. O! September Pendleton was seen returning on the train. W A Cm - .Ti A aa Qi If i 1906 ll ... 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. Very respectfully, JOHN CONRAD MALLET, Cadet First Class 1 .',f " 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.

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 thrust out at all the World, as We proudly promenaded in the inter- 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. Most everyone turns into a desperate spoonoid, and the guard tour that makes a man miss a hop is doubly cursed.

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 their enjoyment. 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. CULLUM l906 HOF' MANAGERS DOMINOS FILIRTATION I - A: A 'rf -5-A-.. Alsrawgaw-1.

SYNOPSIS 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. - N ' gl kxji -I l. f f . 1 AND yi' y g OLPFSTERD CA-PTAIN PUMPERNICKLE, a tireless disciplinarian, one of the quill's Own PHILIP H.

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!"

To meet the requirements of the situation, I made the following dis- position:- 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 Springal. 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. Very respectfully, JOHN D. RUFFHOUSER, Commanding the Grayr. -RU' AN lwcioem-or THE PRAcT1cE MARCH ' HV"-' 1' v 131551-g5g""'eee" "'i"2gij ff' i N -'W' N sq, V an -1 .fem l , ei e Q? 3' V '.- I ,K" H - ff ff .

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 today! 77 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- dred men- "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, after all. 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 men-. Faint, slow notes of a bugle blowing taps were mingled with my dreams. The day was done. - li wx lily N ffl' f ffgixse x 4 iq X lx?

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 hesitation: To be a soldier.-Wz'Mrz'c-k. fAnd indeed his acts have certainly borne out the truth of this statementl . To start up the ladder of fame.-Downing. Oh, the glamor of the place!-Lane. The people demanded it.--Lougkry. Didnlt like to disappoint the President.-Spurgzn. D0 you LEIZ-E716 zin the Horpzital?

What else can a second lieutenant do F-folamon, W. ff. Never! For shame!-Thompson, XVI. H. ff! Can't-she hasn,t a cent.-I-Iorsfall. It is my object in life.-Sneed. Ask my creditors-Donahue.

Yes, to keep up with my wife VVaring.-Burleson. Have boned make and breakfin Electricity course.-Byrd. How many C0115 laafue you xerfved? Three hundred, to be eonxerwatifue.-?ones, R. ff. None.-P. D.

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: Was on the stag in camp.-Lone. Those plebe guard toui's.-MaflVl1'lIz1n. B-r-rl 'Has he a record? Bl'-1'-I'lZL0Ul.7Ig. ffffnaz' 1-K the worst tie-up you fmfve ever Jeen? P. M. E. drill in scientific rope work.-Brett.

T don't remember it now.-Converse. ' The one I bugled on, and got a 3.0.-Dedrmond. Homo do you feel when you ferr? 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, There are just a few who are more frank, so few they are that we give themall: ' 272 fZZe 'HOWITZER That the instructor Wasn't fair-I can,t really fess.-Pelot.

A Boot-lifk-The status of relations existingvvhen an inferior, having by devious devices ingratiated himself into the benign consideration of a su- perior, becomes, by virtue of the latter's supercilious condescension, a recipient of innumerable privileges, prerogatives, or ininfunities, not ordi- narily to be conferred. C.

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.

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 on stem. Forward cylinder locking device which holds the cylinder in perfect alignment with barrel and insures increased accuracy.
