It is then put on the tube before it has time to dry. PARTLY CORRECT. GALLOGLY-There are two methods employed in assembling the tube and jacket. namely, breech insertion and muzzle insertion. In the case of breech insertion the breech of the jacket is slipped over the muzzle of the gung or. to be more concise, the jacket is stood on end over a pit and the breech of the tube lowered into the muzzle of the jacket. The other, muzzle insertion. is accom- plished by slipping the muzzle of the jacket over the breech of the tube, this is done by standing the tube on end over a deep pit and lowering the muzzle of the tube into the breech of the jacket. -1 i -7. l'Zv' X ir' IV" ll f t f ,,?fi3? 1 ' .fi- ,ff WM - ff if A METHOD OF "DEDUCTION."

I don't see how it is that you men get so mixed up about pounds weight and pounds mass! It is very simple. just remem- ber that a pound mass is a weight that weighs a pound, while a pound weight is a mass that Weighs the same amount on a pair of scales as a pound mass does. And a mass of a pound is the weight that a pound of any material would have if it weighed the same as a pound mass.

His brother name, Speck, was earned in his plebe year, when, after f11ling two boards with a deduction of the binomial theorem, he slowly faced around and in a hushed voice asked Drug Miller for his enunciation. On furlough he butted into the Inspector-General's Department and reviewed all the Milish camps in Louisiana, where, according to his Podunk, "in his shining brass buttons he was the delight of all the ladies in sight. Louisiana looks with pride upon her stalwart young soldier." By specking the duties of Number Two when the "Mary Powell" looms in sight, "P" made such a hit with Swish that seven strong and ignorant men couldn't keep him out of the coast artillery. 41.

Pewt's biography might be adequately set forth by filling the required space with sulphurous cuss-words and frosting them over with delinquencies. Bake from one to two hours in a slow oven. The result is of most appetizing appearance on the outside-and nothing said about the interior. We believe in giving the devil his due, however, and lay most of Benny's sins at the door of uh-Hand. Pewt came here with a handful of gilt-edge references as to his character and studious habits. This last was demonstrated by the fact that he had specked the first thirty-seven pages of the logarithm tables. By diligerg efforts, though, he has overcome any hankering for work that he may have once had and now doesn't do any more than anyone else. 42 AizTHUR, ROBERT . . ................

A shy, retiring soul, possessed of the temperament of an artist, which persists in making itself known through the medium of weird sounds on the piano and mandolin. With the idea of lessening the disturbance, Drain was sent to live with him, but alas! even Jesse was overcome and now listens with rapturous gaze whenever his wife begins to toy with the music-boxes. Chester once attracted a beautiful' damsel as the proverbial candle does the moth. She met him at the skating rink-took his picture- stole his buttons and almost dragged him to a hop. And they say that Romance is dead! In his delicate way Chester has perpetrated things in Drill Regulations at which even Swish was unable to say, "I guess I'm not in on that." For further account, see Drain. BANE, THURMAN I-IARRrsoN . . . . . .San Francisco, Cal. "T. I-I." HFRISCOJ' Corporal, First Sergeant, Captain. Read "Declaration of Independence," July 4, 19065 Toasted "The President," New Year's Dinner. Early in his career Thurman's angelic beauty attracted the attention of con- noisseurs. When a boy, artists contended for his services as a model, he was in great demand for seraphs' heads, and on the coast there was an Adonis-unfortunately lost in the San 'Francisco disaster-of which it is authoritatively stated that he was the original. To-day the femmes all rave over him, the only consolation there is for the rest of us is the thought that, unless he settles in Iolo, only one of them can get him. Besides the distinction that his good looks have brought him, Thurman has earned a great name as one of our truly military boys. His efficiency is based mostly on his marvelous sound-off. In this respect he adheres closely to the teachings of the Corkian School-when he gives a command it sounds like a fragment from a choral recital. 1 43 BARTLETT, GEOFFREY. .. ........ ..New Bedford, Mass.

B.g B. A, Cap'n Booth, like his wife, Di Sultan, hails from Mississippi. He has never told why he left home, but surely a person of his indolent disposition tied it up frigidly when he traded Mississippi for West Point. Once immured here he made the best of a bad job by conscientiously neglecting every bit of work that he would not be caught shirking. Despite his dolce far niente habits, he has managed to stay up near the top of the heap every year, which has led the envious to proclaim him a tenthoid. The T.

We know the plebes. He has always tried to uphold the right, particularly when somebody is arguing on the other side. And if they refuse to take the other side, he persuades Ben easily and takes it himself. Being a versatile man, he has always had a fair degree of success in this. Although his hammer cannot be said to be in the heayy-weight class, along with Lew Rock- well and Oscar Rice, he has accomplished a few feeble raps that have added very materially to the farefamed, over-worked Anvil Chorus. 46 CHANDLER, CLARK PORTER ...,... ....... . . .Concord, N.

Not more than four departures from this vale of tears can be traced to Chan, but we have "positive proof, sir," of several others. He is very courteous on the polo field, seldom, if ever, striking an opponent with his fist Cbelieving this to be a foulj, but almost invariably using his mallet. Chan is the first of the intelligent and suffering minority who has dared to announce openly in the public press what he is going to do with all his pay that's left after paying the household expenses and buying the Missis a new gown semi-frequently.

There are few exams he has given the go-by, and he has walked the customary ten tours for "failing to prepare himself, etc." Bob has shown a truly touching devotion to his wife, Goat Henry, with whom he has lovingly shared his scanty stock of tenths for four long years. At polo he is a fiend, and he loves to bone gallery in the Hall, but he won't take the cavalry for seven reasons- the first, because he was, is and will 'be too goaty. The other six don't count. Besides, he is convinced that his clarion-like sound-off is needed in the do-ugh-boys, so he won't need a horse till he attains field rank in 1947. He claims his P. C. S. was "Civil Engineer."

Notice these things and profit by them, for it is by observing these things, seemingly slight, that the gentleman is distinguished from the common or garden variety of cadet. Aunty will glide through life culling posies here and there in the pleasant places, with only now and then some enchanting and wayward little caprice just to show his wife- for he will have one-what a roarer he might have been.

We have often puzzled over whence came that serenity that Wilkie wears as a fixture. Never unduly elated or cast down-never gets fussed when an orderly knocks on his door and says that the Com wants to see him-his conscience never gets up after taps to annoy him, except for one or two little things that don't amount to much, anyway. There is a look in those green eyes, though, that suggests that perhaps some time in the past Wilkie was busily engaged in collecting voluminous experiences at moderate cost. It may be, but, if so, he has outgrown it, and having donned the garb of humility, he has settled down to a life of profitable meditation and has earnestly endeavored to make his wife happy.

The thing got to be a nuisance, and efforts have been made to break it up, which, so far, have been only slightly successful. "Bun" iirst came into prominence at a hoo in Yearling Camp, where a femme was heard toremark-"Oh, I do love Mr. Craitonl He's so nice and pink." And he is.

For the 1907 cup-Class I-Entry I-Wobbly Willie-medium height-fair and fat-affectionate-does not kick or bite, and is even now being trained to drive double. That he will be a star in his new 'role goes without saying. Willie is a brilliant conversationalist, excelling principally, in argument and dispute. He generally wins from his opponent because he argues like he walks, and everybody knows what that means, for whenyou see him at a distance you can't tell whether he's going or coming. All the rest of him is mystical-full of unexplained nothing. Wlieliever we see him we feel convinced of this and unhesitatingly conclude that we are in the presence of a vast expanse of woodenness.

A sad experience has worked overtime to make Sloan the pessimist that he is. Once he found life too arduous to be continually writing to Evylyne, so he con- ceived a happy plan whereby his wife was to write to the lady and announce that poor Slum had broken his arm. It worked like a charm. Sloan was overladen with sympathy and other things without the soiree of acknowledging them. But there is no silver lining without the dark outside part. Evylyne and another friend got together and compared notes. You can guess how much longer it lasted. Everything since has been temporary, although one was heard to say, "You may forget me, Mister Doak, but I shall never forget you." Since this came to light Slum would like nothing better than to attend a funeral at which the man who overheard the conversation should play the leading part. 52 ., J,-A '- r H-.-'5""i"' ' - F, 'i.,'g4,r'!

It is one long and solemn protest against the decay of the gentle art of lying, couched in most voluble terms. Apparently there crept into his nature early in life an ambition to wear the mantle of Ananias, and to accomplish this end he has sacrificed coherence, proba- bility and the facts of history for thersake of a magnificent and wonderfully cultivated series of effects. Otherwise his virtues are modest and unobtrusive. He will tell you himself that his one failing is that he talks too much, and will ask if you think he talks as much as he used to. Please don't disappoint him.

His plans for improvement are unique and lead one to suspect that a wonderful organizer was lost somewhere in him, but that it was done so successfully that no trace of the gentleman has ever been discovered since. Lew has his romantic moments, however, and was once caught on Flirtation vigorously waving a bath-towel at a train across the river while he struggled with his manly emotion. He denies the tale strenuously, but as a picture was secured of him in the act, his denials don't go very far. He has been mentioned-although on the Q. T.-as an entry for the class cup--a sort of dark horse. ROGERS, CHARLEs DUNBAR ...................... Seneca Falls, N. Y. "CHARLIE" "C. D."

Most military careers start from small beginnings and ascend to a glorious climaxg the one we are about to discuss began with the climax. Yes, at the first June distribution of rewards for budding quilloids, Pen drew the chest-inflating position of first corp, and yearling camp consequently resounded with the clamor of his military doings. Since then, the downs have been more frequent than the ups in his career, and despite mighty efforts to step into the coveted lieutenancy from an acting ser- geancy last summer, poor Pen: is now a mere common or garden variety of buck. Not for him now the waving plume, the flashing sword and the gaudy sash, but rather is the meek cartridge box and the lowly musket his portion. Alas! how are the mighty fallen.

' The living image of Don Q., he yet refuses to imperil the hearts of the ladies with his awful beauty, and never goes to the hop. Rosenheimer has a persuasive and soothing manner about him that has gathered many tenths for him in every course. He fastens his large, calm eye on the fascinated instructor and sounds off the speck that gets the tenths. However, some of us are much inclined to believe that young Rosinski cloesn't really bone as hard as he would like 'to make the instructor think, and that when he looks most guilelesisi, he is perpetrating his biggest whizzers.

What were the other inducements besides moonlight on the Hudson, no one asked, they were not required in his explanation. One month. Again-he entered society and attended various functions on the post. His mania was short-lived, though, for when he submitted a permit to dine with a gentle-man at Highland Falls, and it afterward came out that said gentleman had been dead five years-well, you can imagine what the Com did to the permit. SANTSCHI, EUGENE, JR . . .Salt Lake City, Utah KISKID Corporal, A. B., B. A. Far from the savage West came to us this uncouth Mormon, leaving his many wives to the mercies of somebody. His propensities all lie along the lines of politics, and he is never happier than when organizing a graft or engineering a deal to do somebody. He has accomplished much by his eloquent tongue, for he ,is endowed with a wonderful gift of metaphor and simile more forcible than elegant, which he has used to great effect. But lately his pet schemes have been bucked and now he chafes under the ignominy of the title, "Deposed Politician." Nevertheless, he has not been idle, for since'that time he- has shed a dazzling brilliance on many a scene in our history-particularly the Hundredth Night performance, where he functioned as electrician. This is not his only connection with the stage, either, for Ski and De Wolf Hopper are bosom cronies. The Mormon put on a show for Hopper in Brooklyn last fall.

Sco is one of those tactical pets who can confidently count on a few tours every semester. Constitutionally averse to unneces- sary labor, the goats have long claimed him as their own. Nevertheless, he is considerable of a tenthoid, and the tenths he loses, though many, have ,to be pried from him with a crow-bar by his instructors. But it is as a platoon driver that Sco is most prominent. On the days of large hops one sees him, attending an obese, bald individual, leading a bevy of girls from the Castle School, turned loose for a real West Point hop as a sort of for-a-good-girl reward. He recruits enough caydets from Company Swish for partners and then a grand drawing is held for femmes. Talk about your lotteries! Of course, some chaps get horribly stung, but then, justice prevails in the fact that the poor femmes are taking just as big a chance as the caydets. ' SELBIE, WILLIAM ELIOT ...Deadwood, S. D.

And yet that isn't the worst of Bill-it's that even after the instructor has amputated the said diezmo, Bill continues fto howl lugubriously in a manner fit to make all the famous tenthoids of antiquity turn in their graves and esteem themselves mere Fauntley Millers in comparison.

Yes, Richard is the personification of all that is staid and humdrumg truly, there is no other like him. The absence of anything even faintly suggesting the imaginative may be held accountable for the fact that no one ever saw him surrounded by visions of loveliness all talking at once and abstracting his bell-buttons. Perhaps he is shy, in which case, oh, guardian angel, please get busy, for his coy nature may appeal for sympathy and the protective instinct in some strong-minded woman, and Cincinnatus will have to demonstrate what he knows about making beds and sweeping Hoors for the rest of his days.

Total, 47. Lt HREF. successive Howitzcrs have set forth the history of our struggle through plebe, year- ling and second class years. Therefore, it is not the purpose of this sketch to narrate again the incidents of our cadet days, but rather to endeavor to fol- low the Class of 1907 through the Academy, pointing out the infiuences that have Worked to transform it from an aggre- gation of civilians to the fin- ished product-a VVest Point graduating class. The trans- - formation has been so great, so thorough, that the influences must have been potent, and they were, for the principal ones were the intangible and yet no less real forces of the Spirit of the Corps and the Genius of Wfest Point. From every corner of this broad land, one day, now nearly four years ago, one hundreds and sixty young Americans were bending their steps North, East, South and VVest to the shores of the Hudson. They were a most democratic body of young men. All ranks, from the boy who left his self-supporting toil to grasp the greater opportunity Fortune cast in his way, to the chap who was annoyed because valets were proscribed at VVest Point-all these were represented in the crowd of IN PLEBE, CAMP civilians who reported to the Adjutant on that wet in our civilian lives. Before the unfamiliar reveille had and dismal June day. Filled with gleaned from "Chevrons" and 'WVon at Wfest Point," they were ready to rush over to Cullum that night to allow a few damsels to fall in love with them, or to relieve the Cadet Adjutant of the worry of taking parade the next day. Alas, for the disillusionment of youth! Fifteen minutes after report- ing, whatever distinctions had existed among us disappeared under the moist disfigurement of the ponchos we drew, and our passage through the mill that grinds slow. but exceedingly hne, had begun. The first influences to work upon us were destructive. The initial days in Beast Barracks utterly destroyed old habits of procrastination, even long-es- tablished ideas of propriety-a re- cruit's is not a refined job-and com- pletely wiped out every atom of self- confidence we ever possessed. In their place were forced upon us iron ideas of discipline, inculcated principally through a never-ceasing repetition of the fact that we, beasts, were the low- est ranking of the rungs of a ladder whose next rung was at infinity above beautiful' ideas twice called us from our well-earned rest, we were fairly P Ai SECTION IN ENGLISH us. The value of time was taught to us by cramming in the grip of the system that was to make over our very into a mere twenty-four hours the events of a week souls. 99 The hammer that rough-forged and shaped our nascent military careers was Captain, now Major, James K. Thompson. No officer in charge of new cadets ever had a clearer conception of the sterner virtues needed in the makeup of a West Pointer, his definite ideas he applied to us with a vigor contrasting strangely with the coddling tenderness that on one occasion since marked the recruit instruction of new cadets. The harshness of his methods was then deeply execrated, but now we are truly grate- ful that we were brought up Linder his stentorian voice and grim discipline and not under the piping rising inflec- tion and bless-the-little-dear methods of later years. R Convinced of our utter inefficiency, we were sent to camp, where a less rigid regime allowed us to recover part of our equipoise. There in plebe camp we were for the first time part of the Corps-we began to realize what it meant in truth and loyalty and honor to be one of that gallant brotherhood. It was our fortune to be in camp with two classes whose standard in all that touched the Corps was conspicuously high-from them our growing' class-consciousness and class-spirit received an impress that tended always toward the good. That was morally. Physically, the fierce tasks that fell to our lot hardened us day by day, made us known to work and more than once made us intimately acquainted with exhaustion. Plebes, however, are more or less dumb in their suffering, but their suffering is none the ,less real for their silence. Thus, we early learned to hide our misery, for we were soon filled with a sullen pride which carried us on through struggles, physical and mental, that a few months before would have segmed overwhelming. Books make character. Cnr books now absorbed us and left their mark on our characters. Cursed is the memory of the departed Charles Smith, of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, but with us yet are the convolutions in our brains furrowed by a pursuit of knowledge under his tutelage. He caused us many sleepless nights, but he started us in the way of logical thinking that allowed us later to calmly face our instructors with only the meager premises gleaned from our enunciations as starting- points from which to proceed to marvelous deductions. Stumbling along then, with our eyes on the difficult ground we traversed, we could not see whither all this work tended. Some of our band lost hope-they 4 . 5 , I AT ST. LOUIS resignedg others lacked strength-the Academic Board did for them. Wfhen our first year's labors ended, forty men had been dropped from our rolls. Clos- ing in to fill the blank files, we pushed on-a hasty tear for the departed and the whirl of quick succeeding events initiative. Wfith recognition came a changeg the realiza- tion of it brought a reaction that carried us to the other extreme. Wfe thought that now we occupied the center of the stage! Severe checks from unsympathetic tactical officers and efficient file-closers somewhat rudely dis- CORPORALS IN YEARLING CAMP cast them as dim, regretted memories to the rear. Thus camerour plebe June. Twelve months had sufficed to change us from irre- sponsible boys to preternaturally grave, unnaturally self- controlled machines, checking every impulse, killing all turbed our dreams of greatness, but nevertheless our self-confidence was allowed to grow, and the more humiliating signs of our plebe serfdom disappeared. Wfith the second class on furlough, and the first class too biisy contemplating its own greatness to bother much with us, our self-assertiveness, and, must we add, our conceit grew apace. A number of our classmates began to exercise a limited authority. Thirty were no less than cadet corporals! As they adjusted themselves to their positions and we others to obeying orders from our equals, we learned a new lesson. Obedience to our seniors had seemed a natural if not always cheerful duty, obedience to our equals seemed an absurd and unmanly imposition. But we had to learn the bitter lesson, and discipline was the gainer. Moreover, a corporal here and there had too exalted an idea of his position, and it was necessary to check him in the interests of good-fellowship and har- mony. Here, then, was the beginning of class unity. Exhausting attempts to master an abstruse branch of mathematics, furious efforts to learn the French lan- A SUMMER AFTERNOON JULY THE FOURTH guage, long hours spent standing in the Drawing Acad- emy, long hours of drill, of study, of haste-this night- mare is called Yearling September. Here we learned. to concentrate our thoughts and our efforts, to make the most of our time and-to go without sleep. The hand of adversity now took part in the molding of our characters. Desperately we fought, a losing, heartbreaking fight, and the despair of it was that in too many cases- the fiercest efforts seemed without result. Three months of living under pressure, baffled by our elusive grasp of descrip- tive geometry, brought us to the crisis-general review- in a very demoralized condition. Struggling with an 5 . Q THE AREA OF BARRACKS actively malignant department, we never had a chance, fifty-six men took the examination, and eleven of these were lost to the class. V In plebe year men were lost whom we had not grown to know well, we regretted them, but they had not sufficiently impressed themselves on the class to make us miss them long. In yearling year we lost 111611 we had grown to know and like. Their loss was deeply felt. Once more we closed in and shoulder to shoulder ad- vanced, our hearts, like soldiers' in the field, a little harder for this sight of our own dead. If yearling year begins as a night1nare, it is brought to a close in a trance that lasts five months. Was there work? studies? drills? Ofcourseg we are discussing life at VVest Point. Yes, work went on as usualg calculus worried usp Spanish confused us, drawing annoyed us, but we heeded not. Our souls we had projected into that future time of joy-furlough, our feet stumbled unheeded among the grosser impediments of the hour. Did time pass quickly or slowly? 'Who knows? Once that day came which saw our deliverance, the past was forgotten, it became but as a night where we had groped till the blessed light of freedom near blinded us with its unfamiliar effulgence. Two years of our cloistered life had been passed com- pletely out of touch with the world, consequently, while in most respects we had grown older, more serious, more manly, as regards knowledge of the world we were mere WINTER SPORT children. Wfe had now a chance, in the ten weeks of mingling with outside influences, to rub off the corners our rigid training had developed. Furlough served this purpose, but we remember it only as the happiest period of our lives. VVe realized that this was the last time us once more in harness, with a bit of our furlough slouch and all of our post-furlough grouch. VVe came back to realize, through the joy of seeing again the comrades we had missed during the summer, how close the bonds of friendship already knit us man to man. More gloomily, .Melee AUGUST TWENTY-EIGHTH when we would be free as irresponsible boys, and we avidly seized the chance to drain the cup of pleasure to the last drop. joy is the spur that drives time East. August twenty- eighth came two or three days after July Fourth, to find we came back to realize that two long, hard years sepa- rated us still from the day of days-our graduation. Hence we faced the dreary future with sullen hearts, envious of the first classmen already discounting june, cyni- cally contemptuous of the yearlings dreaming of furlough. THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM' The proverbial second class course opened to our gaze a broader horizon Our studies heretofore had been very narrow in their scope, and consequently had had a nar- rowing influence on us. The less restricted fields of natural science allowed our minds to develop along other, broader lines. Our studies were not so avaricious of our time, as in the previous year, we had sufficient for outside reading. Many of us in ,this period cultivated an intimate acquaintance with the masters of literature, and they helped us to counteract the undoubted contract- ing effect that the precise system of the Academy has upon individualities. Another influence we encountered at this time which tended toward broad-minded culture was the lectures of Colonel Larned on Art, and our glimpse of the treasures of the Metropolitan Museum. These were factors which must be recognized as of great importance in our development. Unfortunately, too little time could be devoted to the lectures and to our one hasty visit to the Museum to enable them to have the value they deservedg their importance lay in that they in- dicated to us a realm of whose very existence many of us up to then had not even a dim conception, a realm whose A PRACTICAL JOKE Bs-. , , CAVALRY DRILL enchanting vistas called to us to come and learn to grow amid their beauties. The plebe looks forward to recognition, the yearling to furlough, the first classman to graduation, but the second classman sees only a Weary succession of days and weeks and months-there is nothing joyous for him in the pros- pect. Tortured by memories of the happiness of his furlough, lacking the stimulus of eager anticipation of future pleasure, it can almost be said of him that he is dead to ambition and lost to fear. His one keen concern is to make time pass quickly, he is now not so much an active participant in life as he is a weary, detached observer, Ending nothing so interesting in a,, day as its end. - J Second class year, then, if it indicated to us the expan- sion that is an essential of culture, did not bring to us any great degree of happiness. Past and forgotten was the boyish exuberance of our yearling days, While the arrogant content of our first class days was still hidden behind the veil of the future. A long Spring dragged itself to a weary close, and another graduation, holding only cursory interest for us, came to find us utterly ignorant and unexpectant of the great change that would soon creep over our spirits, our minds and our hearts. Camp Schofield was yet young when the realization that we had begun our last year, that our graduation was at last in sight, served to drive from us the indifference that had so long possessed us. lfVest Point suddenly be- came a most pleasant spot, our roseate mood colored nj LIGHT BATTERY even Nature with brighter tints. Everything seemed to combine to make our life more enjoyable than ever before. Even the restraint that had so long been irksome seemed to be relaxed, and in great measure it really was, for we found more freedom, especially from the petty annoy- ances that make up nine-tenths of a cadet's hell, than we had ever known. This was truly a period of mirth and light-heartedness, when we all of us seemed to drop the weight of three years of toil and become cheerful lads again. As the thinning of the cocoon presages the emergence of the chrysalis, so the diminution of our petty worries heralded the coming of our emancipation. NVe learned the great difference there is in drilling when one is in ranks, mechanically conforming to the movements, and when one is in command keenly alive to the requirements of one's position. We learned to feel that we were sol- diers, as we galloped in advance of a troop or brought a battery into action, hnding a pleasure in applying the lore of the Drill Manuals that we had never known in learn- ing it. Our increased responsibilities, together with the habits of command acquired in our last year, came to round off all our previous training. Wfe had long obeyed, having learned obedience, the sweets of command had a peculiar relish for us. As with drills, so with our books. From September of this last year of ours we realized vividly that we were destined for the profession of arms. Formerly our studies had been general, we now came to the particular branches, for which the others had been only preparatory, which would give us the knowledge we would afterwards apply in our work. It was vastly stimulating to know that we were not studying now merely to prepare step- ping-stones to other subjects, but that we had come to the very subjects whose principles we would need afterwards in our profession. Of course, other influences, many of them, touched us during our passage through the Academy. There were the influences of men, of whom it has been our fortune to know some sterling gentlemen, there were the influ- ences of women, of whom it has been our happiness to know some who were "the best the beneficent God e'er sent to bless undeserving man." Grateful, indeed, for all the good that has ever affected us, we have come to a realization that we are men who will soon take up men's work and duties in the profes- sion for which we have so arduously prepared. That thought brings no tinge of sadness or regret. Like ath- letes who have long trained for the contest, we eagerly await the hour that will send us into the arena, ready for the struggle that will prdve our mettle, the struggle that will show if all these influences have molded us into nothing less than all that is called for in the words, "A Graduate of Wfest Point."

Middlesboro, Kentucky l, l HEN, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to replenish the supply of cadets at the United States Military Academy, certain s e l e c t e d groups of promising young cits are allowed, in the interests of universal peace, to offer them- selves as disciples of that bold, bad god, Mars. So it was that on june I6Tl'1, 1904, we, now the second class, presented ourselves before the Superin- tendent's clerk with the startling announcement that we elected and intended to follow the profession of arms. The clerk has witnessed similar scenes each Iune for a score of years, so, with the greatest nonchalance and rapidity, he dispatched us in laughing, joyous groups to the area, where we boldly put our hands to the plow and our chins inside our collars, never to look back for two long years. Quicker than Buckner going spooning, we were formed in two long columns before the gua',gd-house, whose dark throat swallowed us one by one, and disgorged at fre- quent intervals squads of uncertain-looking individuals, each carrying a brown leather belt and looking as if his sole object in life were to correct the error of the Maker who designed the chin to travel in advance of the larynx. This was the first step in the transformation of the s.i.,.,,b CLEANING GUNS IN BEAST BARRACKS SATURDAY INSPECTION IN CAMP heterogeneous mass of mamma's prides, Podunkville High School valedictorians and tin major-generals into Beasts, such was our entrance into Beast Barracks. Ah, yes! Beast Barracks-who can describe its ter- rors? It is a time of trouble and disenchantment-one long nightmare of sweeping, drilling, shining, cleaning, shaving, bracing-in short, it is a period of highly concen- trated effort in which one is expected to keep busy twenty-four hours a day and is assigned extra tasks to be done between days. Next came plebe camp. There we found it possible to snatch a moment of sleep between guard tours, com- pared with the experiences of the previous month it seemed a haven of refuge. However, plebe camp is scarcely a success as an amusement provider, and none too quickly did the time pass. Even the delightful plebe dances in Cullum could not make the time really sprint, so it was with a sigh of relief that, on August 28th, we marched back to barracks and settled ourselves firmly in winter quarters. Camp Forse was a thing of the past. On September Ist we opened, for the first time, C. Smith's famous-or infamous-Algebra with the serious ' I '.o P. M. E. intention of mastering its contents. Now "Charles Smith, M. A., Master of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge," has methods of torture peculiarly and distinctly his own, many a long night we wearily toiled behind blanketed window and transom, vainly striving to juggle "X" and "y" into the "easily shewn" and "plainly evident" forms of that profound mathematician. Christmas vacation passed like a Hash,,and on january 2d the remaining toilers, furtively whispering "never again" over B. S. and Geometry, buckled down to more C. Smith and Trig. The long, lonely winter months rolled into spring, and finally, in spite of the evident unwillingness of the calen- dar, june did come. To the graduating class that merry month of famously rare days may bring certain regrets andpains, but certainly we felt none. The days of pliebe- dom were left behind without a pang when on june 14th we joyfully loaded our worldly goods into stretchers, and conveyed them to our summer home-Camp Edgerton. Yearling camp ln Ch, that it might have lasted always! There were hops and tennis and boodle and sleep-every- thing, in fact, that could neutralize the effects of the Riding Hall and matinal infantry. It was too good to last, and when old Father Time observed our indifference to his company, he turned out his toes, leaned back, and trotted out with such surprising speed that we were rudely awakened from our dream of bliss to find ourselves on the eve of our first practice march. Ah, those daring marches! Those bloody conflicts! Who of their veterans can speak with dry eye and steady pulse of those thrilling days? -Long live in the youth of our land the memory of the dauntless courage, the stead- fast patriotism, that swept everything before us as we L RLY' . n vw- i. GOING fought our way, centimetre by centimetre, through the heart of the enemy's country from VVest Point to VVest Point. To the gallant cadets be all honor and glory, and may it resound to the undying fame of our fearless leaders that, during the whole of that glorious struggle, we lost but one man-shot with his own rifle loaded with a blank cartridge! - In this last blaze of glory yearling camp ended. On August 28th we broke camp, and, hieing ourselves back to barracks, met a wondrously sour-looking bunch of cits, Whose demeanor loudly proclaimed them the second class, just home from furlough. Yearling September is a term synonymous with an impolite expression and end- less work. With Conics, Descript, and all the rest to be wedged in between Sundays, the poor weeks were stretched quite out of shape and could scarcely be made to ht into the little thirty-day month. In November we met the vaunted Conics and passed it with' little more than a scratch, while the dreaded De- script lfVrits surrendered without a blow in December. v AND COMING Christmas leaves? Not many, but reading and skating were in abundance, so we of the bad conduct records did not mind. Here and there a dis-fiend put his tooth- brush in a suit case and-returned in a few day-s with his eyes propped open and with a hopeless look on his face, as if his well-deserved eternal punishment were already beginning. 1 Christmas vacation is the last stop before Furlough. For the first three months it looked like we were going through on schedule time, so that by April we seemed to be on the last grade, with the throttle open and a clear track. The month of showers seemed unnecessarily long, but we found it merely an introduction to that four- volumed treatise called May. june, though, for real, interminable endlessness, takes the cake. The first few days were like so many weeks, the next few hours were like so many years, while the last few minutes of gradua- tion exercises that hung past noon, june 12th, were cen- turies of intolerable agony to us whose Furlough was fast flying. At last, however, all was over, and, intoxicated with the joys of freedom, we speed away to New York City and oblivion. Furlough! the magic word brings a thrill to every cadet's heart. To this one it is a paradise of the futureg to that one, a dream of the past-for it is beyond the power of mortal man to describe the joys of that short, blissful summer, and foolish is he who shoulders the task of preserving in the cold precision of the printed page a record of that joyous time. Suffice it tb say that Furlough went in a blinding Hash, leaving us only August 28th and hearts full of memories to speed us on our way toward june. Wfe are back again, and the old monotony of reveille .and taps has long since ground us once more into the regula- tion pattern of cadets. The land of lightning quill and "' -V .,..,-wife:-:1:41's-' ,.-,.-,: can awww-A-W forty horse-power skin-lists is our home for two more years. Wfe now revel in the delights of the second class cinch-every day put us twenty pages nearer june-and as we feel the "cinch" slowly. tightening, we can only gasp for breath and, bowing our heads to the inevitable, resign ourselves-to wait.

' ' vt, -f f-iiigfff I 2 .15 Ct AFM JL- Q ' if N narrating the story of the mili- tary career of the Class of 1909 We would like to begin at the beginning, but this, alas! is im- possible. To do so We vvould be obliged to go back to the far- off days when Eddie Greble marshaled his legions of tin warriors on the nursery floor, and when Sunny jim Ord, mounted on his gallant hobby- horse, charged fiercely at the head of his juvenile com- mand. But the limitations of space compel us to eschew all this and to commence our stirring tale on that "most auspicious occasion," june 15th, A. D. IQO5. 'We came drifting in from all points of the compass, until, by the morning of the fatal fifteenth, We were about all here, and after "signing up" at the Administration Building were kindly conducted byfan orderly through the east sally-port and left to the- mercy of the merciless. During the ensuing days previous 'con- ceptions of cadet life were dissipated rather rudely, and new impressions, as impressed by yearling corporals, came to us. To be sure, we d1dn't have much time for refiection, for when one is staggering at a "D, T." from -Jus , ' 4...,.. l SEACOAST BATTERY the Cadet Store,'laden down with a mattress, a chair, a pillow, blankets, seven or eight pairs of shoes and some "n" other useful articles, all crowned by a gilded tar- bucket, he is not in a very contemplative mood. Most of us afterward regarded Beast Barracks as a sort of con- tinuous purgatory run on the vaudeville plan, while cer- tain specific incidents scintillate with unusual brilliancy in the constellation of our vicissitudes. During those days we learned the rudiments of the art of cleaning guns and brasses Ca science later perfected in plebe campy, and we used up an amazing amount of pomade, most of which went on our ponchos. Nor were our liter- ary tastes neglected, for Corky Davis gave us inter- esting lectures on the Blue Book, and read the Articles of War, pausing frequently to awaken some unfortunate whom he had caught napping. But all things have their end in the fullness of time, and so did Beast Barracks, for one bright july day we marched over to Camp Edgerton, there to establish fra- ternal relations with our comrades of the Corps. About this time we learned that a plebe's habitual gait about camp is the double time, and that he has few open dates for pink teas or sociables. Three-hundredth Night af- forded us a delightful opportunity to eulogize our upper- class friends, and shortly afterward the practice march introduced us to the aboriginal inhabitants of York State in their primeval domiciles. Then, back to barracks once more, we went forth boldly to do battle with C. Smith. We had the honor of being FLIRTATION OLD SOW the last class to "read, mark, learn and inwardly digestl' his celebrated "Treatise on Algebra," nor did we emerge unscarred from the Titanic struggle which ensued. On December 2d we journeyed to Princeton. Greble, john- son and Moss bespeak the work of ,og on that memorable day. Swiftly lied the winter months, and from the begin- ning of the spring drill season we doubled the time away until june hove in sight. In that little band of nine who went down to Annapolis in May and brought back the Middies' scalps, our class was represented by Johnson, Meyer and Mountford. Soon afterward came the week of stunts for the Board of Visitors, terminating in that day of days when we emerged from plebedom to taste the joys of yearling camp, while thirty of our number disported in the tank ,for the privilege of being received among the Com's own. Now began a life 'of spooning, hopping and feasting, plentifully mixed with talcum and tanbark. lfVeekly guard tours gently broke the monotony of camp life, and several of the more aspiring bucks spent their after- , ' . s is-. i , YQ Ur, I X .: J iv N BLANKET TOSSING GROOMING HORSES noons in boning amanuensis. Spec Richardson avers that this is the most efficacious way to quilldom. Spec ought to know. for he has tried all ways. Nor was Camp Schofield devoid of those things which are "requisite and necessary as well for the body as for the soul." Many a busy band of workers toiled, heavy laden, up the laborious ascent from Gee's Point, their journeys culmi- nating in swift and noiseless rushes over the sentinel's post. 'Who better knew how to plan these evening ex- peditions and to carry them to a successful conclusion than the renowned Pappie Gleeck, the sweet Warbler of "C" Company? A good business man is a valuable acqui- sition to any community. Fatima's chief rival for popu- larity was Sunny Jim Ord, who, despite his make, de- veloped aremarkable penchant for deeds closely border- ing on woodenness. Sunny always insisted that these acts were simply the permissible idiosyncrasies of eccen- tric genius, and held stoutly to the 'old maxim that "to be great is to be misunderstood." Be that as it may, who can forget how the peaceful calm of a summer's day would be abruptly broken by the ferocious and blood- curdling cry of "Bump Ord," followed by a succession of dull, sickening thuds, as the battered hero expiated his latest crime on that faithful old tree in the General Parade? Nor were the other yearling quills allowed to rest un- GEES POINT disturbed in their proud serenity. Several of them de- veloped a nocturnal habit of sliding out into the company street about midnight, requiring a bucketful of cold Water to awaken them to a realization of their surroundings. The tacs also contributed to the disquiet of our chevron bearers. Crissy expostulated mildly with a beast and was the first of our makes to suffer martyrdom. Then Sunny Jim was placed on the retired list temporarily. The initiation of their successors into the ranks of quill- dom was attended With appropriate ceremonies. In August came the camp illumination, in which Dutch Erlenkotter went back to his old! vocation of running a roulette wheel, while Nix attracted everyone YEARLING PARADE "A" COMPANY WAGON by his perfectly natural adaptation of the role of a coun- try Rube. The first class departed the next day for Fort Wright, and for a Week the yearlings reigned supreme. The bucks all strove for a place in the file-closers, the makes practiced the sword manual all day long, and Lee and Patton vied with each other in sounding off at parade. The next Week we made our second annual invasion of the regions across the Hudson, and, in a bloodless campaign of six days, "We conquered a great country and a place, without the loss of ia single battle or skir- mish." As an episode of this period should be mentioned the strategic attack of four yearlings upon Poughkeepsie. Having planned a nocturnal descent upon that city, they "folded their tents like the Arabs" and silently walked away-for two months. Shortly after our return to the Point, yearling camp became a blessed memory, and on September Ist we found ourselves face to face with none other than the redoubtable Pechols himself. Right manfully we met our belligerent antagonist and contended in our virile strength against the legions of the Math Department. Verily "we wrestled not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers of darkness of this world," against Lucifer himself, armed with hyperbolic paraboloids, in- verted sloboons, and all the other instruments of the powers of Satan. We also became acquainted with the etiquette of the drawing-room, and Paw Reed learned that it is bad form to dip a right-line pen in a bottle of ink. Malven actually had a plate accepted along in December, but it is generally believed that "Haggie" used the wrong stamp by mistake. November Ist saw us back on dear old Lindsay once more. He and his veteran comrades had forgotten none of their winning ways. but were the same "nice, gentle horses" that they had been for the past sixty years. Our sins of omission and commission in the Riding Hall were duly chronicled on the bulletin board, and Dutch Erlenkotter shocked everyone by the fearful indelicacy of a certain skin which appeared after his name during the period of Hvoluntary riding" at Xmas time. Hoboken training showing itself again! In the midst of our Descript Writs we paused to pass a day in Philadelphia. Greble, Johnson, Mountford and Stearns were the heroes whose names will be forever cherished in the fond remembrance of 'o9. When the holidays came round a goodly number of yearlings ex- perienced their first taste of freedom in eighteen months. 'But a shadow of gloom was cast over the class at this season by the ruthless decree of the Academic Board, which lost us six of our comrades. Requiescat in pace! And now, in the midst of all the hopes and fears and anxious labor of our yearling course, we still find timebto pipe over the golden day to come, when, with two years of our sentence worked out, we hit the trail for the sta- tion, and the long-waited furlough of the Class of IQOQ becomes a present reality!

Cn that day it was in- vaded by a more conglomerate mass of ,barbarians than ever startled the geese of Rome into cacklingwakefulness. Not as a conquering army did We come, but rather as though we were surprised that we had the au- dacity to show ourselves on this sacred spot. Once here, however, We concluded to waste no more time, and so went boldly into the Administration Build- ing and registered, thereby relinquishing our last claim to be considered rational beings. A sympathetic orderly ushered us over to the barracks, Where We were soon shown that we were indeed but beasts. Weighed down with a sense of impending doom, we were led to the guard-house first thing-a very clear intimation of what We were to expect all the rest of our stay. Here we were put through the "third'degree," not as bad as it might have been, but such as' to leave gloomy visions of what was coming our Way. We 'emerged richer by a brown belt apiece, and Clest we forgetj it was here that our class received its first make. Freddy Uhl was then Li K A sie-sm ,,,, 'ii 5 and there made a f'room-corporalf' much to the jo his podunk, his relatives, and ourselves. MOVING TO CAMP A. if The gentlemen who were devoting so much time and attention to us had three black stripes on their sleeves, could they be first classmen? Yes, the nation had de- ceived us again. Our depths of gloom had been deep enough, but to learn that our meeting the yearlings had been postponed came near breaking our hearts. However, these same first classmen were de- termined to till the gap and relieve our disap- pointment as best they knew how. In ten min- utes we were getting into the long-wished- for gray. Immediately there began a more strenuous life than "Teddy" ever dreamed of. It was double time here, double time there, to the Cadet Store and back, upstairs and down, and always with -f f a bundle, mattresses and pillows, brooms and books, pails and pans, in an ever-growing pile, till we longed for a rest with an ex- ceeding great longing. T By and by came dinner, a welcome interruption, but not as welcome as our expectations had led us to believe. SI-IINING SHOES There we were instructed to dine at la militaire, which is a very good way in certain respects. Its chief advantage is that a man sits so erect that he is able to dispense with swallowing, since the food falls in a straight line from the mouth to the stomach, which, if he is an expert, is drawn half way up, ready to receive it. In the Mess Hall we made another inter- esting discovery: that the portraits on the walls, like upper-class- men, were not there as an artistic adornment, to be gazed at. We have been fre- quently told that we were lucky to have no yearling. Corps to' run us in Beast Barracks. But, then, you can't ac- count for some peopleis views. Ask any first classman and see what he says. We' began early with a little ju- dicious exercise after breakfast every day, and ended late with one of the quickest baths that ever went by that dignified name. In the morning we drilled, in the after- noon we drilled, just before supper we drilled. By way of rest, after dinner, we attended a gun-cleaning forma- i l 1 - T' ' p . , I LOOKING AT THE SKIN-LIST tion, where we learned a good deal besides. Every now and then we were marched over for a lecture, where we were told everything about a skin, from the way to get one to the way to get out of one when once we had it. During this time we paid three official visits to camp, once to see parade, when we were all filled with great admiration, once to muster, when we were all filled with great fear, and once to look it over, after which we were all filled with great crawling and many skins. Finally the morning of IulyN7th found us toiling dis- mally over the plain with all dur household goodspiled on our backs. A little later in the day we marched over to camp' with much pomp and ceremony, band playing and hearts proudly beating, and as we marched for the first time to the martial strains we felt that we were real West Pointers, at last. Life in camp was very different. There were fewer drills, to be sure, but we found that "release from quar- ters," when written in plebeian. spelled "scrub, clean, polish." We had been there just two days when the first batch were detailed for guard. Now, guard is a great opportunity for al young man with courage and alert- ness, of which fact we were informed with great solemnity. First they take the victim out on the parade ground and initiate him with much ado, in order to make him realize what grave responsibilities he is about to shoulder, and then, before he knows how it all happened, he finds himself walking nervously up and down a nar- THE TARGET BUTTS ON A SUMMER AFTERNOON lifrli V nag 1-1 4- SIEGE.-GUN DRILL row path with every nerve strained to detect the stealthy approach of all the unknown enemies he feels to be around him. After what seems a century the welcome relief comes in sight, and the tired sentry makes a bed of camp-stools and sinks wearily down to rest. Barely have his eyelids closed to visions of the "Mary Powelll' sailing across his post, and a galloping troop of cavalry approaching from the other direction, when there re- sounds, "Turn out the guard, officer in charge l" Then what a wild scramble-cap not to be found, somebody has his gun, and all the time the corporal yelling in his ear- oh, he will long remember that first guard tour! ' We also had a gun drill where every command was one of execution: "Report that man for inattention at siege- gun drill." And there was another called standing-gun drill, but that is a misnomer, for those guns were never still a minute, and, moreover, we were the horses. Cul- lum Hall furnished us a place to dance, but unfortunately not at the hops. But the biggest soiree of all was when we were detailed to go down to the target butts. The first squad was so elated that no one would ever have guessed it to be com- posed of plebes. "We're going toilearn to shoot .... the first duty of a soldier is to shoot straight and to live straightfl such were the thoughts that rang in their heads, as they proudly shouldered their rifles and marched out over the plain down to the target range, glad to be free from the tedium of camp. There, however, disillusion 1. INFANTRY DRILL MACHINE.-GUN DRILL awaited them. Instead of going to the firing-line, they were directed to report behind the butts, a queer place to shoot from, as one innocently remarked to a comrade. But there was no shooting on the program in the per- formance oi which they figured. No, sirg all they had to do was to work those targets till the sweat rolled off in rivers, and they actually began to envy their tentmates, from whom they had lately parted in such glee. However, the summer wentvf quickly by until at last came the practice march, our first fun at West Point. There was lots of hard work, it is true, but there was lots of fun, too, and we made the most of it while it lasted. Though we were glad to get back where we could get something better than slum, most of us were sorry when the live days' trip was over. But no one was sorry when camp was over on August 27, and we hailed our return to barracks as a deliverance. This rejoicing was soon cut short by the arrival of the furlough men, for whom we did our stunts as we never had before. I I Then lessons began, and though the dreaded C. Smith had at last been routed, and all his terrors put to flight, the Math. Department still evinced a remarkable talent for finding out what we didn't know. Wfe soon wished we were back in camp, or better yet, that another camp would hurry along. In a short time the first of December rolled around, and brought the Navy game, when we all had a "big GALLERY PRACTICE IN TI-IE. AREA I38 ' 0 holiday" and the time of our lives Cplebe livesj at Phila- delphia. After that there was nothing to do but settle down and count the weary days till June, for to plebes Christmas means but little. That month will, hereafter, seem the best of all the year. Then we will be recog- nized, and get even for all we have undergoneg back to "Yearling Campf' this time our own, peopled with jumbled visions of booclle, hops and pretty girls, and for some, chevrons with which to win their hearts.

The winning of the place that athletics holds in modern life was slow, contending, as it did, so often with moss-grown traditions and ideas of propriety which to-day seem all that is absurd, but which in their day had all the force that the narrow lives they regulated could give them. If such were the conditions in the world at large, the obstacles that athletics over- fsffvffyo 5 came in obtaining a place in our VVest Point life may be imagined. ' Until less than two decades ago the pitiless repression of the exuberant spirit of youth by the rigor of the iNest Point system made the training at the Academy approach in harshness the training in the novitiate of the religious military orders of the Middle Ages. Tradition bound the place so tightly about then that when the introduction of competitive athletics was first proposed to the authorities, they sternly disapproved. To them and to many older if i graduates there seemed to be no place in the scheme of things here for anything so threaten- -u r f il I Il' 1 Et il! 'ii ll ll. ia' ilk li il ilixl l. ing to the stiff formality of the military life as competitive outdoor sport. However, there if were enough officers of progressive ideas to extort from the powers a grudging permission --- to meet the Navy on the football field. ' Fifteen years have passed since then, and to-day no one conversant with the facts can deny that athletics from their inception have steadily contributed toward the good of the men of the Corps. Though far from living to-day a life of ease and comfort, the cadet of IQO7 finds conditions here more tolerable than the cadet of 1877. It is the expansion and the pleasure made possible, by athetics that make men graduate nowadays with more generous feelings toward the institution that swallowed so remorselessly four years of their youth. In these fifteen years that have elapsed since we began to meet other institutions on the athletic field, West Point has earned for itself, through the indomitable efforts of its sons, a most remarkable place in the collegiate world. It was in football that we earliest reached the first ranks, our advance in the other branches of sport has been slower, but just as sure. In baseball we are yearly becoming a more considerable factor, and the day is in sight when our team will be a recognized contender for championship honors. The baseball schedule has become each year more ambitious- this spring's schedule is the most ambitious one ever attempted by an Army team, and its successful completion dur- ing the coming season will do much to earn for us the recognition we demand on the diamond. Wfhat are termed here minor sports have had a harder time in establishing themselves, due principally to lack of financial support. Of late, however, the Athletic Association has been more generous and a corresponding increase l4Z in the effectiveness of our basket-ball and hockey teams has been observed even in our own time. In field sports we are noticeably backward, of course, because offthe utter lack of facilities and of time for training. Hence our track records are all much higher than we like, but in the future, when the Academy has a real athletic field, much better records will be established. . , I In fencing, our success has been truly phenomenal. Since our entry into the Intercollegiate Fencing Tournament in 1902 we have won the trophy four times, being second only to the Navy in 1905-truly, a record to fill us with pride! These victories with the foils represent a degree of self-denial and work exceeding that demanded of the candidates for any other Army team, and so, in recognizing fencing as a major sport, we do no more than justice to the men who strive for the glory of the Corps in this branch of athletics. It is. after all, to the glorious record of the Army in football that we look with most pride. No one but a man who has been through the soul-deadening grind of every-day 'West Point life can fitly understand all that the candi.dates for the football team have to overcome. But they overcome everything, and on many a hard-fought field the Army teams have proved themselves the superiors of the strongest teams of the country-yes, even in defeat they acquire glory, for they may be defeated sometimes, conquered never. Wfhen we pass into the world that lies beyond cadet days, the strongest tie that will bind us to the Academy will be our interest in the achievements of Wfest Point in the world of sport. Though we may be far away, we can give to our teams material support, our best wishes, sympathy in defeat and hearty congratulations in victory. May its representatives on the athletic field carry the name of XfVest Point to even greater heights in the future than its gallant sons have elevated it in the past! , . 143 ' . i l'b'fQ.

Lieutenants Graves, Torney and Rockwell had previously reported as assistant coaches, and, assisted by this able staff, the head coach began practice at once. Of the 1905 eleven, seven players remained. The end and center positions were left vacant by the graduation of Gillespie, Rockwell and Abraham, in the backfield, Torney left a vacancy at fullback. Philoon, the substitute center of the 1905 team, was looked upon as Abraham's probable successor, while Beavers' kicking ability made him the choice for Torney's vacancy. About forty can- didates turn'ed out for the end positions. During September there was little time for anything but preliminary practice, but the team that lined up against Tufts for the first game was well instructed in the fundamental principles of the new game. The first two games, with Tufts and Trinity, respectively, were little more than practice games for the Army team, which had heavier and more experienced players than its opponents. The third game, against Colgate, marked the real be- ginning of the season. The Colgate eleven proved to be worthy of the Army's best efforts. Vlfith heavy players, who had been well coached by Mr. Warner, the former Cornell guard, the visiting team was able to keep 'the ball in Army territory dur- ing the first half and prevent our team from scoring in the second half. Unfortunately, Beavers re- received a serious ankle in- jury in this game which forced him to retire and de- prived the Army team of his C. T. HARRIS, JR., Manager services until the Navy game. Pullen's defensiv'e work at guard showed him to be one of our strongest players. Entering the game at a critical moment in the first half, when Colgate had the ball on the Army's 3-yard line, he repulsed two successive plays directed against him and forced Colgate to try an end run, which resulted in the Army's obtain- ing the ball. This contest, ending in a score of O to O, showed that we had a strong defence, but an undeveloped attack. lfVith the Harvard game but two weeks ahead, it was seen that our offensive play must be developed and Beavers' place filled, if we were to triumph over the Crimson team. , The XfVilliams game, following the Colgate contest, resulted in a score of I7 to 0 in the Army's favor. After this game several changes were made in the line positions. Weeks was moved from end back to his old position at tackle, Sultan was shifted from tackle to center, taking Philoon's place, Pullen took Erwin's place at tackle, and the lat- ter was placed beside Weeks in the guard position. Hickam seemed to have taken Weeks' place at end and Hanlon was playing fullback in Beavers? place. The Wed- nesday before the Harvard game, Garey, who had been playing end and quarterback on the first team, broke a leg. This accident was particularly unfortunate, as johnson, the other quarter, was in the hospital, and Mountford was needed at halfback, where he was filling the vacancy left by Smith, also on the injured list. As necessity demanded it, Mountford was shifted to quarterback and Moose put in Smith's position. With a team that had been so hastily put together at the eleventh hour it was not expected that we would make a great showing against Harvard. A low score in Har- vard's favor was all that was hoped for. The surprise that our players gave Harvard was shared by the Corps, but with far greater pleasure than our friends from Cambridge received it. Mountford opened the game by kicking off to Harvard. On their own 25-yard line the Crimson players began the first scrimmage and incidentally learned that VVest Point's line was like a stone wall. Burr, the All-American guard of IQOL5, was imme- diately called backtou punt out of danger, and thereafter Mr. Burr's chief function con- sisted in a series of repetitions of the same act. Although Mountfordls kicks were lower and shorter than .Burr's, our ends, Stearns and Hickam, were down the field faster than I49 R. C. HILL, Captain Harvard's ends, and the handling of Mountford's punts by the Harvard backs was inferior to Mountford's catching of Burr's high spirals. Mountford accepted all chances Cto revert to baseball termsj and succeeded in nearly every instance in running the ball back from ten to thirty yards. Hill's splendid interference was of great aid to him in this work. SEPTEMBER PRACTICE The first half was slightly inWHarvard's favor. VV'e kicked five times to their four, and they worked the ball into our territory shortly before the half ended. A long gain of sixteen yards, made by means of a forward pass, put the ball on the Army's I7-yard line. A short plunge, followed by a mass play, advanced the pigskin to our 3-yard line and both teams braced for the supreme effort. The ball was pushed over, but amid the cheers of the Harvard rooters the Uhonk, honkf' of the referee's horn was heard, and it was the Army's turn to look pleased. Unfortunately for Harvard, Orr, their right end, in an overeager attempt to help the play along, had held an Army player. Instead of scoring five points, Harvard received a penalty of hfteenyards, and in the few minutes of play that remained the Army players charged so fiercely that the ball was forced out of the danger zone. VVhen time was called for the first half, it seemed that the Harvard hoodoo had been broken at last. We were more certain of that fact when the second half be- gan. This half was the Ari-ny's up to the last ninety seconds of play. 'We kept the ball in Harvard's territory all the time and gained sixty-nine yards to their twelve. VVith ninety seconds to play and the ball in West Point's possession on Harvard's 15-yard line, Mountford dropped back to try for a field goal. Then occurred the spectacu- lar pl-ay that proved the Harvard hoodoo to be still un- broken. Mounty held out his hands to receive the pass from the center and the rooters held their breath. The pass was high, Mountford caught it with difficulty, but still attempted to kick. Like a flash, VV'endell, Harvard's speedy fullback, blocked the ball and started down the field with it. Mountford turned to pursue him, but was quickly blocked by a Crimson player. Hill and Moose took up the chase. They gradually closed up on the Har- vard runner. On the I5-yard line Hill made an attempt to bring his quarry down, but his magnificent effort was A BIG GAME ISI 1 1 Q . PRELIMINARIES ineffectual and 'Wfendell gained the goal line, where he was downed by Moose. Burr failed to kick the goal, and the score was 5 to 0 in Harvardis favor. Time was called soon after this play, and another fluky victory over VVest Point was added to the Harvard list. That the game 'was won on luck cannot be said. Weiidell's blocking of the kick was a splendid piece of ngork, and his run for the touchdown was well worthy of the applause it received. But we cannot refrain from comparing the number of yards our team made with Harvard's total gain. Every- one must concede that Harvard was outplayed by the Army in the second half. l52 Ten thousand people came to witness our contest with Yale, which took place one week after the Harvard game. Most of the visitors must have been unaware of our small seating capacity, for only 4,500 spectators were able to find seats. The men of the Corps willingly gave up their seats in the bleachers to save their friends from "stand- ing room only," but they couldn't help wondering why the management had failed to erect another grandstand before the season began. During the week preceding the Yale game many "wolf stories" came from New Haven. "Roorne was in the hos- pital," "Yale had no defence or attack," "seventeen coaches were engaged in a supreme effort to develop a team that could defeat the Army." . These were the rumors, but they deterred our coaches not a whit from the niost careful preparations for the game. During the week, Smith returned from the hos- pital to take his place at halfbackg johnson, R. D., re- turned to relieve Mountford of the quarterback duties, and the latter took Moose's place athalf. Hanlon was put at left end. These were the only changes in the line- up, and the team went into the game with confidence in their own strength and a determination to defeat Yale. Yale's first attempts to advance the ball were signal fail- ures. Our line charged fast and repeatedly broke up the Blue's formations before they could make headway. The redoubtable Tad jones seemed demoralized when Han- lon and Stearns came swooping down upon him. He did some of the most consistent fumbling of punts ever wit- nessed on our field. Unable to gain through our line or around our ends, the sons of Eli saw themselves slowly f , l lv l l l l i l i but surely forced back to their own goal line. When VVeeks fell upon the ball that Jones had dropped when catching one of Mountford's punts on Yalels 46-yard line, Yale's lucky star was seen to pass behind a cloud. The next play, a forward pass to Hanlon and VVeeks, resulted in a 26-yard gain, and placed the ball on Yale's 20-yard line. Smith next made five yardsg repeated the trick on the succeeding play, and ended the series by smashing through for two more. Fighting desperately were the sturdy Elis, but they could not stem the tide of ad- versity. Qvereager to stop our onward march, a Yale player burst through the line before the ball was- snapped, and we received five yards. Witli the ball but four yards from the goal line, Smith plunged through, but cour- teously stopped a few inches from the line, so that Hill could have the honor of scoring the first touchdown made against Yale since Harry Torney and Red Erwin per- formed the trick. Hill made the most of his oppor- tunity and the Corps executed a war-dance. Mounty kicked the goal. Exactly fifteen minutes had elapsed since the kick-off. With ten minutes to play, the Army team received the ball and started out for another touch- down. A 2-yard gain by Smith was followed by an onside kick that gave Yale the ball on our 41-yard line. A successful onside kick put the ball on our 28-yard line in Yale's pos- session. It was Pappy's turn to shine, so he rudely spoiled a fake drop-kick that the young gentlemen from New Haven had planned to try. The ball came back to us and Mountford kicked to jones. It really wasn't Pappy's turn to star, but he didn't care, and we didn't either, when he recovered the ball that Jones muffed. An onside kick to Mr. T. All-American Jones was again taken by Pappy, who seemed to have the habit. With the ball in our possession on their 25-yard line, the situation was tense. Magnificent defence at this critical moment gave Yale temporary relief. Holding us for downs on their I5-yard line, they kicked to Mountford, who seemed to have a temporary attack of Jonesitis. Stearns was quick to recover the ball, however, and again it was Old Eli's turn to look toward the timekeep.er with wistful eyes. Hanlon received a forward pass from Mountford and galloped down to the Blue's 26-yard line. Johnson made ON THE FIVE-YARD LINE three yards to the left and Smith gained "first down" with a 9-yard advance. VVith Yale's line weakening and beaten back, a touchdown seemed inevitable, but time was called and the first half was over. VVinkleman says that Yale's lucky star was of the first magnitude during the second half. Something hap- pened about two minutes after the beginning of the sec- ond half, and when we recovered from the shock we found that Yale had scored six points. Yale's kick-off sent the ball over the line and "Mounty" kicked out for us from the 25-yard line. Yale trieda for- Q? A PUNT BY VEEDER ward pass, but Pullen's red crown bobbed up serenely and the play was blocked. Their kick went out of bounds on our 11-yard line and Mountford fell on the ball. In almost the exact spot that gave Harvard a chance to score in IQO5, Mounty stepped back to kick out of danger. 'The ball was passed back and simultaneously a blue-jerseyed form- hurled itself upon our little halfback. lt was theiform divine of Mr. Forbes, from New Haven. He paused in his flight only long enough to take the ball and then continued his aerial course across the goal line. The goal was kicked and the score stood 6 to 6. After this spectacular play both teams played fast and hard to break the tie. The ball was in our territory most of the time, but a sturdy defence kept it outside of the danger zone. Toward the end of the half, KnoX's long run back of Mountfordls kick put the ball on our 22-yard line. Unable to gain by carrying the ball, Yale tried a short kick, which was caught by Mountford. He re- turned the kick on the next play and it went out of bounds on our 41-yard line. After an unsuccessful for- ward pass by Yale, Veeder tried a goal from field, but it went several yards to the right and we "touched-back." A few minutes later a second attempt was made for a "drop," but the ball went out of bounds on our 1-yard line. Mountford was forced to kick from behind his own goal line, and Knox seized the opportunity to make a fair catch on our 31-yard line. Bigelow kicked the goal from placement and the game was wonifor Yale. Time was called soon afterward. , Although by the score we lost the game, we feel that our team clearly outplayed Yale. The record of the game shows that the Army made 76 yards in 27 trials by line-rushing, while Yale made 265 yards in 22 trials. By forward passes we gained 125 yards and Yale Igyz. In spite of the score, all Army people were well satisfied with the game, and the Princeton contest was anticipated with the expectation of an Army victory. The Tiger team, in championship form, was confident of scoring at least twenty points against the Army. Army supporters were sure that Princeton's hopes were founda- tionless and confidently expected that Vlfest Point would end the series of big games with honor. No one an- ticipated the unfortunate accidents that befell three of our players early in the game and which, without doubt, diminished our attacking strength and ability to score. Princeton's first score was quickly made. A kick-off, which went over our goal line, followed by an exchange of punts, put the ball in Princeton's possession on our 18-yard line. Failing to gain on the next play, which Smith broke up, the Tigers attempted an onside kick. Christy broke through and blocked this, and a Princeton man fell on the ball. In the next three plays Princeton made a first down-one of the two she made in the first half. The two plays that followed netted one yard and a half yard, respectively, so Harlan dropped back to do the obvious thing-try for a field goal. The ball sailed between the goal-posts, and the Jersey rooters went wild. ' Soon after the next kick-off Ruton-Miller, of Prince- ton, struck lfVeeks, who, instead of turning the other cheek, smote back with great effect. Both men were . I I 5 1 -. Y .... 'KM 4 "f ARMY'S BALL ruled off the Held by Referee McCracken, in spite of the fact that the captains of both teams were willing that both offenders should remain in the game. Weeks' place was taken by Sultan, who was relieved of the center position by Philoon. After having played center the greater part of the season, it 'was to belexpected that Sultan would be unable to play the tackle position in the form he dis- played early in the season. iTh!at he did play brilliantly is shown bycthe fact that the Tigerteam- found him im- pregnable and soon gave up their repeated attempts to gain through him. I Soon after W'eeks retired, Smith was injured while assisting in stopping one of the Princeton quick formation plays which involved a successful forward pass. Moose took Smith's place. The last-mentioned play advanced the ball to our 5-yard line, but a I5-yard pen- alty, followed by Pullen's falling on a fumbled ball, put the ball in our possession on our 20-yard line. Pullen's ' FUMBLE? splendid work in breaking through to fall on the free ball resulted most disastrouslyjf-or the Army. His knee was badly sprained in the effort, and later he was forced to follow Weelcs to the side lines. Fowler, a man who had never played in a game, took Pullen's place. Prince- ton found him no weaker than Pullen, and much credit ... ... - Rfk is due to him for rising to the occasion in spite of his in- experience. Before Pullen retired, Mountford kicked to Dillon, who made a fair catch on Army's 36-yard line. Harlan's at- tempt to kick goal was successful, and the score stood 8 to 0 in Princeton's favor. The rest of the half was all in the Army's favor. Mount- ford kicked, off to Dillon on the 5-yard line, who ran the ball back thirteen yards. Unable to gain through' our line or around our ends, Princeton soon kicked and Hanlon secured the ball on the Army's 45-yard line. In two downs the Army made seven yards and then kicked to Dillon. An unsuccessful forward pass by the Tigers gave the Army the ball on their opponents' 31-yard line. A short gain on a mass play, followed by an I8-yard gain by Hanlon on a forward pass, took the ball to Princeton's I2-yard line. The next play resulted in a fumble, and one of Princeton's alert forwards was on the ball in a flash. Their kick-out was caught "fair" by johnson on the Army's 40-yard line. Mountford's try at goal from this position was unsuccessful. During the remainder of the half the ball was in Princeton's territory, but never near enough to their goal line to cause anxiety. The second half opened with Ayers in Stearns' place at right end, the latter having sustained a broken nose in the first half. ' In this half Princeton had less success in advancing the ball than in the first period. Both teams resorted to kicking-Princeton to advance the ball and Army to keep the ball out of the danger zone. Sterling defence by the Army team on its 25- and Io-yard lines gave them the . ' , ball on downs. Princeton's only chance to score was on a free kick, following a fair catch by Dillon. The ball went to one side and rolled over the goal line, Shortly before the half ended, Hanlon secured the ball during one of Princeton's mass plays, and ran about sixty yards to Princeton's 3-yard line, where he was overtaken and thrown. The referee called the ball back, on the ground that it was "down', at the time Hanlon seized it. The half ended with the ball in Princeton's possession in our territory and rapidly nearing our goal. This game was an unlucky one for the Army in point of accidents. Smith, Hanlon and Stearns were injured enough to be kept out of practice for two weeks, and Pullen's injury disabled him for the remainder of the season, VVith the Navy game but three weeks ahead, the absence of these four men from practice was a serious drawback to our development. During the week follow- ing the Princeton game there was little practice. Rain on Tuesday and snow on Thursday ruined the field and rendered it necessary to cancel the game with Bucknell on November 17th. The game scheduled for November 24th was with Syracuse. The fact that Syracuse had defeated Lafayette by a score of I2 to 5 indicated that they had a strong team. The Syracuse line was one of the heaviest in the East, and it was well supported by speedy backs. Qur team, weakened by the absence of Pullen, Smith and Hanlon, was not expected to make an excellent showing in the game. Our expectations were most unhappily ful- filled. There is little to be said about the game. Syracuse out- played us and won a well-earned victory. With a stiff norther to aid him, Stein scored a goal from the field on his fifth attempt in the first half. This was the only scoring done in the game. , In the second half we had the wind, but were appar- ently unable to take advantage of it. Syracuse had an ....... . . 'Sill "REEF YOUR ALTITUDE. " opportunity to try a place-kick from our 21-yard line, but we kept the ball in their territory most of the time during this period. VVhen time was called the Army team had met its fourth consecutive defeat-the' straw that broke the camel's back. Ln But four defeats were only considered as merely inci- dental to our preparation for a victory over the Navy. Our invalids were not fully recovered, but it was con- fidently expected that all except Pullen would be in con- dition to enter the Navy game, December IST. The story of the Navy game will be found elsewhere in this volume-it is a tale to be read when 'fthe melancholy days have come." To conclude this synopsis of our season without a word for the Hscrubsv would.be to commit a grave sin of omission. The lowliest scrub is as important a factor in the development of the first team as the head coach. The scrubs constitute the experimental laboratory of the coaches and first team players. If the coaches have a nr.. .4 -. A AROUND THE END new play they "try it on the scrubs first." If the coaches have a new cuss word they try it on the scrubs first, last, and all the time. Yea, verily, the scrub earneth his toast. The football season of 1906 may not be called success- ful. The object of our development during a season is to produce a team that will defeat the Navy. That we reached our full development too early in the season must be admitted. T The strain of three big games was more than our men could stand, and at the end of the series they had become too familiar with defeat. We are proud of the splendid work done by every man on the Army team this year. They proved themselves at least the equals of the best players in the country. Gur line was impregnable, our backs a tower of strength in de- fensive work and hard-fighting offensive players. Hill was a worthy leader of a splendid eleven, and it was only ill luck that prevented his carrying the team through a thoroughly successful season. His loss by graduation, as well as that of Sultan and Moose, will be keenly felt. Lieutenant Graves' earnest efforts to produce a win- ning team in the face of adverse circumstances are most heartily appreciated by the Army. His assistants, Lieu- tenants Torney, Rockwell, Casad and Bettison, rendered valuable assistanceg and the team was no less in debt to them than to the head coach for its knowledge of the new game. I9o7 had hoped to graduate with the remembrance of four football victories over the Navy. We can be con- tent with theuremembrance of three, however, as we are confident that the Army team of 1908, under the leader- ship of Rodney Smith, will gain the victory that we-hoped for this year. . The Navy team scored a well-earned victory on Frank- lin Field last fall. Playing a strong defensive game in the first half, when the wind favored the Army, they fin- ished the period without having been scored against. In the second half, showing an excellent knowledge of football strategy and ability to take advantage of the new rules, the Navy players scored the ten points that broke the list of five Army victories. It is not belittling the Navy team to say that our team was not at its best on Franklin Field, December Ist. A hard schedule, which included games with Harvard, Yale and Princeton on successive Saturdays and a game with the strong Syracuse team one week before the game at Philadelphia, proved too great a strain for the Army players and developed in them the habit of play- ing a defensive game. No member of the Army team was stale when the game at Franklin Field was played, but the team as a whole lacked the vim and dash that had been its chief characteristic early in the season. Thirty thousand people saw the game. The stands were filled to overflowing with representatives of both branches of the service, government dignitaries, state and municipal officials and distinguished foreigners. The Middies arrived in little informal groups, and their stand was filled when the Corps reached the field, march- ing in column of squads. . Soon the siren yell rang out from the Navy section, and its echoes had not died away before the f'long Corpsl' was ringing out to find an echo in the hearts of all loyal Army men. As if in answer to the call of its supporters, the Navy team appeared, followed by its subs and scrubs, 159 x I v gn, 'l .499 , 1 I f M, g '-.ff f L I l 5 fx I I I I K I I af 1?- f.

They had but a moment to wait. An Army girl's, "There they are l" brought every man in the Corps to his feet with cap in hand or sailing high in air. The Army yell, with three "teams" on it, was then given to the pluckiest Army team that ever brought the Army honor. The preliminaries were soon ended. Hill won the toss for the Army and chose the north goal, with the wind in his favor. The Navy team lined up along the center of the fieldi "Are you ready, Captain Hill?l' "All ready, sir." "Are you ready, Captain Spencer?" "Aye, aye, sir." A shrill whistle, a quick advance by Norton, and the game was on. The ball sailed swift and low against the north wind and swerved to the left into Stearns, arms. From the I5-yard line, where it was so suddenly stopped, the yellow spheroid was carried in swift pas- sage to the Army's 36-yard line. Good generalship de- manded that the Army take advantage of the wind, so Beavers dropped back to a punting position, but the kick was blockediand the Navy secured the ball in Army territory. The Navy tried an end run only to be rudely interrupted by Hanlon and Hill. Then the Navy must have forgotten that there were eight yards to be gained in the next two downs, else what could have prompted them to try a play through our line? The sons of Eli, of old Nassau, of fair Harvard, could have told how futile such an attempt would be. The Navy suddenly realized that they were on a f'third down" with seven yards to gain. An attempted forward pass ended with Beavers and the ball on the Navy's 42-yard line. Beavers punted again, and Douglas returned the com- pliment, but Johnson fumbled the ball, the Navy getting it on the Army,s 42-yard line. The north stand thought something wonderful had happened. What they thought of the next play hadibest not be recorded here. Douglas tried a run around the end on a fake kick, but Buzzsaw Christy downed him for a big loss. Soon the Army had the ball, and Beavers tried a drop-kick. The kick was blocked, but Hanlon recovered the ball. Twenty-one yards to the Navy line! The Corps yells at route step, the Brigade gives an imitation of a weak siren-Ray Hill gains five. Eddie Hanlon follows the lead with five more. He continues the motion with two more. Hill adds two. The Navy pipes all hands and reefs topsails on her 6-yard line. A forward pass to Stearns results in a touchback. Narrow escape, Navy! It cost us the Yale game to learn the art of blocking kicks, and it nearly cost the Navy the Army-Navy game. Douglas had to punt, and his kick, blocked on Navy's 17-yard line, went to the Army. Hanlon dis- played his versatility by transforming himself from an end into a halfback and charged the Navy two yards for this stunt, Smith thought the price too low, so he added three more. Beavers' drop-kick sailed fair and true- but a foot below the crossbar. Time to breathe again, Navy. ' After the Navy's kick-out, the ball changed hands several times to vary the monotony, but soon found itself in the.Army's possession, and after gains by Hill, Hanlon and Smith and two unsuccessful tries at drop-kicks by Beavers, and on the Navyls 53-yard line, Beavers made seven yards around right end. Then Stearns, securing the ball on a short kick and with a .clear Held ahead, started on a gallop Navyward. A Stearns chase by the Navy ensued. Our plucky end fell-time was up. Old Father Time had saved the game for the Navy. The second half opened with theeArmy defending the south goal, giving the Navy the wind. The Navy at once adopted kicking tactics, and during the first part of the half the game became a kicking contest between Douglas and Beavers. Slowly but surely the Navy kicker gained over Beavers. Soon the Navy, being in possession of the ball on the Army's 34-yard line, began rushing tactics. A mass play resulted in no gain. The next play was a forward pass, but the ball struck the ground and Johnson caught it like a flash. The next instant every man, woman and child at Franklin Field was watching as pretty an exhibition of running and dodging as ever was seen on a gridiron. Three Navy men lay between our little quarterback and the Navy goal. ' g Twisting. and dodging, he evaded them all and sped onward eighty yards for a touchdown, but his valiant effort had been in vain. According to the rules, the ball was f'dead" when it struck the ground after being passed by a Navy man, and Iohnson's run had only been a l A. i funeral march of Army hopes. VX7hen the ball had been brought back the Army at once resumed a kicking game. The Navy followed suit and gradually forced the kicking into the Army territory. After two fake kicks by Beavers and Hill, the former dropped behind the Army goal line to kick the ball out of danger. Sultan made an excellent pass and Beavers' kick went exactly where he intended it to go-far to the left, where there would be but a minimum possibility of a place-kick in the event of a fair catch by the Navy. A "There is a tide in the affairs of men," etc.-we all know that quotation. It may well apply to football players and teams. Norton seized his opportunity when he made a fair catch of Beavers' punt. Northcroft immortalized himself in the annals of the Navy when he sent the placed ball straight and true between the Army goal-posts. The score was 4 to o in the Navy's favor. The change of goals after the Navy's score gave Beavers the advantage of the wind again, and he made a beauti- ful kick-off to the Navy's I5-yard line. The Navy was un- able to gainhby rushing, and Douglas was forced to kick. johnson fumbled the punt and a Navy man secured the ball on the'Army's 40-yard line. Two trials at advancing the ball netted the Navy four yards. A forward pass from Norton on the Army's 30-yard line was received by Ingram, the Navy fullback, who, with 'splendid inter- hi ference, carriedthe ball over the line. Another Middie had emblazoned his name on the walls of the Navy's Hall of Fame. The goal was kicked-the score made IO to O. The Army was not defeated-seven minutes remained before the end of the second half. VVith unflagging spirit and determination they re- newed the struggle. Every man on the team more than upheld the honor of the Corps and Army. But the time- keeper's whistle ended the game before they could make their efforts tell. ' The Navy was the victor. The Army team had suf- fered an honorable defeat. Sunday afternoon, December 2, IQO6, at 3.30 p. m., a special train rolled into the VVest Point station. Its coming was announced by a "long Corpsn yell, in which 'every man of the Corps joined with all his might and main. The train stopped, and the first football man to appear upon the platform was seized by his classmates and borne upon their shoulders to the waiting bus. With one exception, every other man of the squad was borne aloft to the conveyance that has witnessed the return of many an Army team. Fearing to cause VVeeks greater suffering than he was already experiencing from his injured side, the Corps formed a line for him from the car to the bus, and with heads bared cheered him 'as he slowly and painfully walked across, the platform. No greater honor has ever been paid to a man of the Corpsg no honor was ever better deserved. This was the Army's way of receiving a defeated team-the expression of Army spirit and loyalty. Thus ended our season, the unluckiest, but one of the most creditable the Army team ever played through. ,ff We look forward to the season of 1907 with a feeling of perfect confidence in the Army team's ability to crown itself with a victory and regain the laurels which it so well deserved to win this year.

Year after year, however, each spring has witnessed the develop1n'ent of a team a bit better than its predecessor, so that to-day we are as justly proud of our achievements in baseball as of those in any other sport. Our successes in baseball are all the more remarkable when the difficulties under which our team struggled are considered-little or no time for practice because of the demands of studies and drills, and the lack of a training table worthy of the name. A Despite all this, the team of HIQO6H brought glory to itself and honor to the Academy. Of fourteen games played it won eleven, and crowned its victories with the true diadem of suc- cess-the winning of the game with the Navy. The season of 1906 opened late, due to the long winter. However, we won the opening game with Rutgers, and from then on could be noticed the gradual development of the team. We lost to Columbia in a well-played game, but won the intervening contest with Johns Hop- kins. In a close battle on May 2d, in which we outbatted the visitors, we lost to Yale. Never- theless, our improvement continued, especially in batting, and we held a winning streak all playing twice a week and losing only to Pennsylvania State College, Trinity, Manhattan, the Twenty- second Regiment, all fell before us, and we registered our iirst victory in years over Fordham. On the 25th of May came our memorable defeat of the Navy at Annapolis. That game is described in detail elsewheref It was followed by two contests at home, both of which we won-the first from the Seventh Regiment, the second from the champions of the North Atlantic fleet, the team of the U. S. S. Pennsylvania. Of the individuals of last year's team little need be said. The statistics that follow show how they played from a baseball standpoint, but no figures can show with what spirit they played. The true Army spirit was consist- ently displayed and no jealousies or internal dissensions marked the season. Under the able leadership of Rockwell, C. K., and the good coaching of Mr. Houle, assisted by Lieutenants Abbot and Graham, individuality was made subordinate, and as a result efficient team work was developed. 168 .P A word as to the season of 1907. We can hardly hope to replace Rockwell and Lane, but they are the only ones we lose and we have good substitutes, to say nothing of some good material in the Fourth Class. As to the coach, we have Mr. I-Ioule back again. Pritchett has been elected captain for 19075 he has chosen Staver for the manager- ship, and Captain Lytle Brown remains as baseball representative in the Athletic Asso- ciation. The team of 1907 starts out with the definite purpose of breaking the hoodoo that has prevented either team from winning on their own grounds. That it will do so we feel sure, and thus it will win the title of the greatest Army baseball team to date. Some statistics follow: . SCHEDULE FOR 1907 Union .... ............................. .....

That is the story in a nutshell, we invaded the enemy's country and returned victorious. On Friday, May 25th, the squad left for An- napolis. Due to the generosity of the Athletic Council, the whole squad, consisting of twenty- nine men, was taken. That night we spent in Baltimore-much to the delight of the scrubs- and we arrived at Annapolis about IO a. m., Sat- urday morning. The game was played that afternoon. The Navy adherents were, of course, present in great numbers, but the Army was well represented by visiting officers and the cavalrymen from Fort Myer, who turned out the "long Corps" yell in a very effective manner. It was a great game. Of the thirteen runs made in the entire game, seven were made in the ninth inning, both teams finishing in a whirl- wind ot hits and runs that provided a hair-raising finish. There were many critical moments, and was all on edge during the game. After the game we were tendered a reception by the Superintendent, Admiral Qands and eveivbody attended the hop in the evening. It would be impossible to continue this account without saying a word of appreciation foi the treatment our men received at the hands of the Navy. The hospitality of the sailors is matchless fiom the moment l7l ' of our arrival until we left, the officers and midshipmen extended the cadets every kindness and courtesy possible. In addition, our officers in charge of the trip allowed us every liberty, their treatment of us was all that could be desired. No team has ever returned to West Point from an athletic trip with more pleasant memories. We arrived home Sunday evening in a pouring rain, but we were met at the station by the entire Corps. The demonstration that followed in honor of the team has never been equaled in heartiness and enthusiasm in the history of Army athletics. The details of the game follow: First Inning. Army-Rockwell went out at first, Gill to Symington. Pritchett hit to right. Groninger struck out, but Hambsch dropped the ball, Pritchett making second on the throw to first. Beavers singled to left, scoring Pritchett, and took sec- ond on the throw home. Wagner flied to Theobald. One run.

One run. Ninth Inning. L Army-johnson started with a double to left, Bacon fumbled Meyer's drive, and Lombard's error on Mountford's hit filled the bases. Bonesteel fouled to Lombard, but Rockwell cleaned the bases and scored himself on a drive past Goldthwaite. Pritchett out, third to first. Groninger singled and Beavers struck out. Four runs. Navy-Goldthwaite singled and Theobald followed suit, Goldthwaitexwas out at third on Rockwell's throw. Theobald came home on a blocked passed ball.

It means a sacrifice of time and an ex- penditure of energy which are repaid only by -x,,:53.': . . . . the satisfaction of know1ng that one is work- ing for the good name of the Academy. In this sport, more than any other, are needed a cool head, a clear, quick eye and physical activity that make continuous work an absolute neces- sity. In fencing, when a man steps on the mat he has himself only to depend upon. There is no team work which might hide individual mistakes, no relying on some other personis cooler judgment. Victory or de- feat is in his own hands. Such training is particularly valuable to an army ofhcer. - 4 l78 0 These remarks apply not only to the men who make the team, but to the other mem- bers of the squad as well. The only glory which comes to them is of the reflected sort. If the team does well it means that they of the squad have done their full part in forcing their comrades onward. and if defeat comes it is theirs to share in its chagrin. To Captain Koehler, above all others,.are we indebted for whatever has been done for fencing here. He it is who, in past years, has given to the sport a devotion hardly repaid even by the success which his teams have achieved unless it be that greater reward-the grati- tude of the members of the squad, and their unshakable confidence in his judgment and counselings. To Mr. Vauthier, who came to us last year, we also owe a large debt for his unselfish efforts in our behalf, as well as to Lieutenant Glade and Lieutenant Honeycutt, who helped us so much last year. Nor can we forget the members of the New York Turn Verein for the opportunity offered us of meeting their experienced fencers, and for the hospitable recep- tion extended to us at their comfortable home in New York. The New York Athletic Club has also been most kind, and to them also we wish ,to extend our thanks. ' The prospects for the coming season are bright. It is true that we have lost two. good men from last year's team, but our faith is strong that VVest Point will never be found want- ing at a time when men are needed to keep the name of the Army, on whatever list it appears, among the highest. i 179 O.

ROCKWELL, Captain -- T-TANKS to the Commandant and to Captain Koehler, the team this year felt able A to stand up and look the world in the face. The fourteen-game schedule was . a very successful one, and the team feels that it helped to enliven many a Saturday afternoon that would have been otherwise as dull as only our winter days can be, and would have driven some of our more inexperienced chiefs of platoon into the depths of despair. Last year Hetrick had the team in hand and trained it into a form that compared favorably with that of all the teams we met, except that fast Company HE" team of Schenectady, who led our men such a merry dance. This year Rockwell built up a team of five versatile and evenly matched men, and developed the passing, and what might be called the minor tactics, to a point never seen here before. After all, the team work that will take the ball down toward the basket and get it into the hands of a man close to the basket, so that a goal is practically certain, is what will always win, and this was demonstrated constantly in the games this year, The goals were shot from close under the basket, and most of the tries were successful. , In the games played last season, the team,.as will be seen by referring to the appended schedule, was victorious against nearly all their opponents. As far as interest and excite- ment goes, the two games with the Yale Graduates and the one with the Second Signal Corps were probably the best, all three being very closely contested and well played by both sides. In the first game with the Yale Graduates, the game ended with a tie, and by a long throw Rogers made the goal that gave Yale the game. V NWI-.Q 'ffl I82 The game with the Rutgers Sophomores ended in a clean score for Wfest Point, the result being 60 to o. It is a very rare thing in basket-ball when both sides do not score, and the result of this game showed that each man on the team"must have covered his opponent almost perfectly from start to finish. I The Company "E" team of Schenectady treated us to a beautiful passing game. They won the game on their superior team work, and their cross-passing under the basket, the last maneuver being one that was completely baf- fling to most of our men, and enabled Company to score several very pretty baskets. The game, which was abso- lutely clean and full of excitement, was much enjoyed by everyone. Vlfest Point was unfortunate in both games with the big colleges, being defeated by both Columbia and Princeton, both of whom had teams strong not only in the aggregate, but in individual stars. The Columbia game was very closely contested until the last of the second half, when Columbia made a sudden spurt and won by the score of 31 to 15. The playing throughout the game was very fast, especially in the last half. The Princeton game was the roughest of the season, and threatened at times to develop into something of the nature of football, but in the second half Princeton settled down somewhat, and the game ended with some very fast and scientific playing. In several of the games there was quite a good deal of confusion, and several passes to the wrong men, owing to similarity of uniform in the opposing teams. In the Second Signal Corps game this was especially noticeable, and while increasing the excitement of the game, caused a good deal of annoyance to both teams. Captain Koehler remedied this by supplying this year's team with both black and white jerseys, so that when dark uniforms were worn by visiting teams our teams could wear white, and vice versa. ' This Year for the first time the Navy had a basket-ball team, but for various reasons a game with them could not be arranged. Next year we may meet our old rivals in this new field of sport. ' In conclusion, we believe that basket-ball has passed beyond the experimental stage, and will soon become, like baseball and football, a recognized Wfest Point sport. 183 Wa VW IM s , X X F X N s X i X 5 -X ' f X f-5 S X o f J f f - e at -w Q ' . ' ' f f in gf a , -Ref Only three classes were represented by teams in the Outdoor Meet, held June 8th, but this annual field and track competition for the possession of the banner presented by the Army Athletic Association proved to be one of the most exciting and interesting meets ever held at VVest Point. Under the supervision of Mr. Temple, the members of the IQO7, 1908 and 1909 class teams had undergone as systematic a course of training as the limited time available would permit, and it was predicted by many knowing ones that some of the most ancient and honorable Academy records would give way before the onslaughts of '07's and '08's sturdy athletes. As usual, the plebes were supposed to have several dark horses, but they were not expected to win the meet. The breaking of four records in the meet not only gave evidence of consistent training on the part of the contestants, but also demonstrated the wisdom of securing a professional trainer to take charge of track athletics. ' Of the four new records established, that for the mile run is credited to Dailey, '07, the new pole-vault record to Chandler, '07, the hurdle record to Beavers, '08, and the 220-yard dash record to Hayes, '09. Before the meet the chances of 1907 and 1908 for winning were considered nearly equal, and it was conceded that the performance of the dark horses of 1909 would decide whether '07 or '08 would capture the banner. An unlucky accident deprived '08'0f its fast sprinter, Hickam, who sprained an ankle while running a trial a few weeks before the meet. Arnold, '07, was disqualified by the Surgeon before the meet, and the '07 team was greatly weakened by losing him. The first surprise of the meet was furnished when Hayes, '09, defeated Ellis, '08, in the 100-yard dash. In the events that followed, '08 gradually obtained a lead over '07, who pressed them closely until the field events were called. In the shot-put, Erwin, and in the hammer-throw, Sturdevant, exceeded all their previous records in practice, and with the points they scored '08 was sure of winning the meet. Dailey, '07, Smith, R. H., '08, Beavers, '08, and Hayes, '09, made the highest individual scores. Dailey won the mile, breaking the Academy record, and took second place in the half mile. Smith won both the 440-yard dash and half mile with good margins, while Hayes broke the tape first in both the dashes, establishing a new Academy record in the 220. Beavers captured first place in the higlrjump and broke the Academy record for the 120-yard high hurdles.

A three-ring circus 'is the only show that can compete with the exhibition our gym fiends give every ear. , y Last year's meet would probably be described by Mr. Barnum's advance agent as "a dazzling exhibition, a stu- pendous spectacle, a magnificent display, including a galaxy of the vvorld's most famous acrobatsf' 0,Connor, Hall, Eastman, Marley, and a score of others would be a credit to any circus. Hickam could take an acrobatic clown's part with ease. . All these men did stunts in last year's meet. O'Connor, Marley, Eastman and Boone, the 1907 acrobatic quartet, assisted by their classmates, who scored many pointsiin other events, captured enough points in the machine events to win the meet for 1907. O'Connor captured the Pierce Currier Foster Memorial Cup for scoring the highest number of points. Hall, 1908, took the second place cup. The IQO8 tug-of-War team upheld its reputation by defeating IQO7,S bunch of tuggers and pulling the plebe aggre- gation over the line later in the evening. The sparring exhibition given by Kimball and Rogers, C. D., 307, called forth much applause from the male members of the audience. Mr. T. Jenkins' proteges, Drain and Hanson, ,O7, took part in an interesting wrestling match. Hackett's slack-wire performance was Worthy of a professional. It was no surprise to the audience to learn that he had once traveled with a circus. The meet closed with a presentation of prizes and "A's." The final scores were as follows: IQO7, 485 1908, 40, 1906, 13, 1909, 7. 186 ' TWELFTH ANNUAL INDOOR MEET, SATURDAY EVENING, MARCH 24, 1906 srANn1N0 BROAD JUMP. Oakes, 1908 2. Moose, 1907 3. IO ft.

Moreover, it differs from other sports in that its prime object is not to develop the physique and sharpen the mental facul- ties, though it admirably serves this purpose, but to give a knowledge of the qualities and character of the horse while training the men to ride. This object can be gained by practice only, and polo here is an inducement and a means to this practice. I. The interest in the game among the cadets is increas- ing. Though the privilege of practicing and playing is restricted almost entirely to the first class, yet the other classes are taking a greater interest in matters relating to' polo, especially in the games that are played. This general interest should be encouraged as much as pos- sible by match games and other means, since it serves as a good stimulus- to the men who play or expect to cause of the lack of competition with out- l88 x ,Q M 1 .f . fx , . ,fa 9 N Q 1, 52 play and increases the desire to excel, wl'i'ich results in better players and a higher standard of play from year to year. At first polo was played here on cavalry horses. In IQOO the first ponies were purchased, due chiefly to the efforts of Colonel Howze, who, in 1898 and 1899, had been Instructor of Cavalry Tactics. At present we have a very fair string, though it is not yet adequate to the needs of the men desiring to play. The practice this year has been highly satisfactory to all concerned. There were hot days and wet days, target practice, and other things of a like nature, which sometimes produced a little inconvenience, but none of them had any appreciable effects on the practice or the enthusiasm. For this we wish to give all thanks to Captain Mac- Donald, Captain Marshall and Captain Oliver. These officers, by their kindness, interest, knowledge of the game and willingness to help in every way, are greatly responsible for the season's success. During the last month of the season a tournament was arranged among teams representing the cadet companies. There were five teams, "B" and "D" Companies combining to make one team. The tournament produceda great deal of interest, and the rivalry, though friendly, was very spirited. It was won by "E" Company. The season ended with a match game between the officers and cadets, in which the officers were beaten handily by a cadet team com- posed of Doak, Chandler, Hanson and Kimball.

ENNIS last summer was more popular than ever. The courts were occupied every afternoon, and there were always many relays waiting for next on some court. Many of these, however, cared not whether their turn ever came, each was with a fair charmer who was much more interesting than a mere game of tennis. The score, you know, in tennis, cannot always be love. The tournament this year was started about the middle of August, but, delayed by the practice march and other trips. it was not finished until in September. Twenty-seven men entered in the singles and thirteen teams in the doubles. Geary, W. D., IQO7, won the singles, with Malven, 1909, as runner-up. Geary and Larned, 1907, won in doubles, defeating Malven and Wright, AIQOQ, in the final round. V 190 TOURNAMENT SINGLES Preliminary First Round Second Round Semi-Final 11333 Pfeii ' 5-4 5-4 .

Interest in football Q5 Q5 at the Academy needs no stimulation, but, nevertheless. there are many cadets whose knowledge of the game is limited to 40 'Gb what they have gleaned from the wise words falling from the lips of the knowing ones on the bleachers and what Q83 Qi? they have acquired by observation, There are other men in the Corps who have had experience in the game, but Q 3 who lack the confidence requisite for a try-out on the scrubs.. The class games provided practical football knowledge and experience for all. several -precious days in the Hospital to a favored few, and much diversion for the non-combatants of the Corps who witnessed the three contests. CZZQQQQQD After the two preliminary games, 1907 and 1908 lined up for the championship contest. Both elevens were so well versed in the new game that neither side could score. All suggestions for another contest to decide the supremacy were met with groans from those who had participated. The championship honors were consequently divided between 1907 and 1908, and both classes will have their numerals inscribed on the trophy shield.

A. was'established in I88O as a successor to the cadet prayer meetings. Since its establishment it has steadily increased in numbers and im- portance. This increase has been especially noticeable in the last eight years, due largely to the hearty co-operation of General Mills. It is due to him that the Association now sends its newly elected president to the Conference for Y. M. C. A. presi- dents, held each spring at one of the Eastern colleges. It is also due to him that the Association is now send- ing twelve men to the Student Conference at Northfield each June. The two most important phases of the work of the Y. M. C. A, are the Bible study and the devotional meet- ings. til The Bible study originated in IQOI with a class which was led by Leeds, of 1903. This class was as much of an experiment as anything else, for Leeds was the only one who thought a Bible class could be conducted at West Point. Nearly half the men in the Corps are now en- gaged in Bible study. . The devotional meetings are held in Kendrick Hall after supper on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Or- dinarily, cadets address these meetings, but visitors are occasionally invited to speak. During the past year, among the outside speakers were: Rev. Robert L. Paddock, Mr. W. B. Pettus, Rev. E. W. Beattie, Mr. J. H. Safford, Chaplain Travers, Mr. F. H. Andrews, Lieutenant C. L. Fenton, Father Hunt- ington, Dr. Vanndervater, Prof. E. C. Moore, Rev. P. E. Fosdick and Rev.,Boyd Edwards. - IWW nf s , 4. 203 5 359501 QW i t fl Some twenty-four years ago Miss Anna Wfarner took charge of the Cadet Bible Class. This Bible Class had been organized, about 1877, by her sister, Miss Susan W'arner, who, on each Sunday afternoon, crossed the Hudson from her home, on Constitution Island, to meet her class in Dialectic I-Iall. VVhen these weekly journeys to the Point became impossible, the cadets Went to her. Interest in the work has never vvaned. The class itself is heterogeneous. Men from all four years at the Academy make up its ever-changing person- nel. The object of the class is single-to learn, through the earnest study of the Bible, the truths of Christianity and their application to every-day life. Its results are manifold. Under Miss VVarner's guidance men have always found a happier understanding of their obligations to humanity and the way to a more complete and use- ful manhood. , The homelike atmosphere of the old historical VVarner house has been to its visitors from the Corps a constant reminder of their own homes and of their own home folks. To scores of graduates and students the memory of these afternoons and the acceptance of the principles for which Miss Warner so unequivocally stands have proved an inspiration in time of trouble and despond- ency. No mere Words can adequately express the goodwill which the Army bears to Miss VVarner, nor the love and admiration of those men Who have enjoyed her intimate acquaintance and who, through her teaching, have learned the simplicity and friendliness of Christian life.

Gizznw THURMAN H. BANE Dfmnzi. I, SULTAN The United States Military Academy is, and should be, a most conservative institution, slow to give up or alter any details of the system that has produced so many distinguished men in the past. Nevertheless, with the present extensive preparations for the new West Point there naturally comes a change in the social relations of the Corps of Cadets, and this change appears in the First Classmen's Club. That the club is a decided innovation needs no other proof than a glimpse at the hard and cheerless life of cadets of but a few years ago. That it is a step in the right direction can be shown by a consideration of a very few of the purposes it is intended to fulfill-lirst among which purposes might be mentioned that of making a distinction, and a decided one, between the First Class and the other classes, by giving to the higher class greater privileges and responsibilities in keeping with the position of its members as leaders in Corps life and as men soon to become officers. At the same time it affords an opportunity for daily and intimate association with men, thereby giving that knowledge of men so essential to a good ohicer, and there is also produced a greater love for and loyalty to class and Corps, And lastly the club, with its consequent increased privileges and freedom from minor details of discipline, makes the first- classman, to a larger extent than ever before, the master of his own actions, makes him responsible for the prohtable spending of his time, and so Fits him to regulate his future life and accept responsibility when met, Like all innovations, the club met with opposition when first proposed, but every difficulty was in time overcome. A suitable room was secured in the Academic Building and was completely and tastefully furnished. rThe room was formally turned over to the First Class on February Sth, 1907. On that date the first board of governors was elected, and the club regularly organized. To Colonel Howze is due the credit of planning the club and of establishingitin working order, and his enthusiastic efforts are respon- sible for its success. To the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Seven falls the distinction of having been the first class to,enjoy the club and also the privilege and responsibility of, establishing a high standard of club deportment worthy of acceptance by all succeeding classes. 205 THE FIRST CL.ASSMEN'S CLUB 206 ar e cj sa t 1 f f r 3 A JJ 3 ' .A 'V P4 fy 'fn X' Y - f- NE by one the old things are dropping out of the race and are being put on the shelf. Sometimes their place is filledg sometimes the need of them or the desire for them has gone, and nothing remains of them but the name. . Thus it is with the Dialectic Society. So long ago did it cease to exist as a real living factor that now it means little more than the hall where we go to read the morning news or Pianlw beat out weird sounds on the piano. In fact, when one thinks of it as a society, one first stops to think what the word "dialectic" means, and then remembers having heard it in connection with a society for the "cultivation of applied reasoning and the art of debate." Why it ceased to have an active existence is not clear. Probably the Corps forgot how to apply reason or ceased to enjoy a friendly encounter of words. At any rate, the society lost its literary aspect and took on a-social one amid a blue haze of forbidden tobacco smoke. History doesn't state just who the tac was that hived the smoking, but one did, and the meeting-place became a reading room in charge of a cadet librarian, whose chief duty was to keep the bugaboo known as-the Blue Book ever before the eyes of the members. As a reading room we know and enjoy it to-day. ' However, it has not lost all outward form of an official organization. It still boasts a President and Secretary, who have a general supervision over the hall and the small library. Its chief function now is the production of the Hundredth Night Play, and the President is generally selected from among those first classmen who have been con- nected with the play in previous years. A - It is doubtful if conditions will ever again be such as to make a literary society either possible or desirable, so that if the Dialectic ever revives it will very likely be in the form of a social club, which will be another factor in strength- ening the fast friendships formed in the Academy. That, we hope, will be in the days when the independent action of which we now dream will be a reality and the Dialectic again be prominent in molding the life and character of the Corps. 207 1 . ,-A. -V -2. 1.

This is not to say that in First Class Camp the first classman finds a bed of roses on which to recline for two lazy months-no, in the line ot physical endeavor a three-striper undoubtedly has to work more in his last camp than ever before in his strenuous life. In spite of its hard work, however, camp comes as such a tremendous relaxation after the rather petty existence of the second classman 218 and it brings to every first classman such a great mental stimulus in making him realize that his period of bond- age is drawing to a close, that it stands out, in bright con- trast against the grayness of his previous years, like the brilliancy of a fairy oasis stands out against the sable sands of the great desert. Nineteen hundred and seven made camp the day after graduation in the same old conventional manner, but to the accompaniment of some luridly unconventional pro- fanity due to the presence of Ski Santschi and other knockers of that ilk. The Powers That Be generally have it all arranged with the VVeather Man to concentrate dur- ing those days in June when there are no drills all the rainfall coming to this part of the country for the next few months. lfVell, this year there was a tie-up somewhere- the good weather we had in that period was really un- canny. The T. D. gnashed its teeth, but hoped the drouth might last all summer. It did. J. Pluvius dicln't interfere with a single drill till along in August, although the prayers of the fire-escapers combined with well- directed salvos of the Missouri National stopped a couple of parades just in the nick of time. Drills began shortly-meaning soon after, and not that there was anything short about the drills. No, indeed, and again, not, the first class drill-schedule was worried into the period between breakfast and dinner with a shoe- horn, and what with the delightful buck tours, details over plebes, and drills, we certainly earned our modest stipends. Por once, however, the knockers were silenced, even the Flipper and Bill Selbie and Jimmie Steese put their hammers away in camphorg everyone was so busy having a good time unofhcially from dinner time till taps- X MARCHING TO CAMP and after-that the T. D. soirees were borne with resig- nation. Even after the plebes came over to camp, life was nothing if not busy, and the answer is not "nothing" Highest ranking among the soirees were P. M. E., tar- get practice, and Swish's merry, merry seacoast func- tions. The improvised range-tower in the artillery sheds was the scene of many ludicrous incidents. "Tug that target!" "'Don't say 'hello,' say 'secondaryf " and lots more Swishlets of the kind-shall we ever forget them? Echo answers No! for, in the words of Bill Ganoe, folly alone is everlasting. P. M. E. was the same old frightful soiree that every first classman has known since Hannibal graduated. There was not much chance for grinds or fun in the whirl of work required in the building of spar and pon- toon bridges, pile-drivers, earthworks and other airy structures. However, we all showed considerable in- genuity in dead-beating dinner formation, so that we might have time for a bath, and once under the cool showers we cheerfully consigned the P. M. E, Depart- ment to Hades till the next day but one. Target practice was always bitterly disliked because of the long hours it required of us. We shot on days when the cloudless sky was like a burnished copper shield mercilessly concentrating the sun's rays on our defenceless heads, andhwe ran skirmish runs in rain- storms when at each stop we splashingly immersed our- selves in muddy pools and fired in the general direction of Baffin Bay, the silhouettes being invisible inthe rain. However, we at least shot always, we didn't stew in the butts for four hours and then shoot for ten minutes, like preceding first classes were compelled to do. Target practice with us-praises be !-meant shooting at a target and that we could do that, IQO7,S roll of expert riflemen, sharpshooters and marksmen shows. ' A ' The bull-pen was often the scene of mirth, especially when Wobbly' lfVilly Dawson, most ferociously spurred, would take the jumps with both, feet at right angles to the horse, or when Podo'Shedcl would roll off some Bucephalus plump into the water-jump. Pistol practice gave us much quaint advice and not a little profanity from the departed Linc, whom we will always grate- fully remember for the tactful manner in which he elimi- nated himself so that we might have a chance to "blow one." i Wlien dinner time came, the official work was over, each man was now free to soiree himself to the limit in his determined search for pleasure. Men who at twelve ofclock with difficulty staggered along under a single balk, at one-thirty sallied forth fresh for the afternoon's dissipations. Pleasures there were many, quite surprisingly many. Ranging from a quiet sleep in the catacombs, through golf and tennis and polo, to spooning with all its possibilities, it was certainly a man's own fault if he did not find amusement. Golf and tennis were always popular, especially with the spoonsters, since generally those games were played with a left-handed niblick, a goose-necked putter and no THE Y. M. C. AQ TENT i ' BOODLE ball, or a broken racket and the girl. The last was the one essential when once past the guard-tent. There were tennis Henids, of course, who actually played the game-a good many, in fact, which was really thoughtful of them, for'they furnished amusement for the spooning couples when things were slow. Bill Geary got up a tennis tournament and then scooped in both the singles and dOubles championship, which, to say the least, was grasping. A , Polo, of course, was taken more seriously-so seri- ously, that the more effete of our classmates used to shudder, as they made down their gold medals, to see the regulars striding off for the stables with the tempera- ture a generous ninety in the shade. A great interest was taken by our class in polo, and as a result we developed some exceedingly strong players and quite a number of average cadet ability. The polo Hats were the scene of some very spirited informal matches, which at first consisted of desperate attempts on the part of the caydets to dodge the tongue-lashings of Methuse and the Com, who played polo entirely "by order." After a while, though, the early bluff was lost and we didn't scramble for cover every time they charged down on us, yelling "My ball! my ball V' ' After nightfall the river attracted many, rowing DUCKING P. M. E. WORK parties were gotten up every night to paddle up and down the Hudson, if not exactly in Henley form, at least to the complete satisfaction of the oarsmen. Down in "E" and "F" Companies the non-spoonoids foregathered nightly to while away the time with music and song, boodle and bull, till tattoo called out the gold medals and everybody turned in, after craftily placing a golf club at hand to repel the dragging parties thai' made their depredatory rounds in the still o'night. It was also in those mid- night hours that stealthy convoys were Wont to ascend to camp from Gee's Point laden down with clothes-bags bursting with boodle, and then glide noiselessly across a complacent sentinells post into safety. An unlucky yearling staggering under a load of Bar-le-Duc, Camem- bert, Educators and other inexpensive delicacies, by running into the Com caused the only check roll that disturbed us throughout the entire camp. It is, after all, spooning that gives to First Class Camp its distinctive charm. Spooning offers innumerable possi- bilities for enjoyment-during the lazy afternoons when shady, secluded nooks are in fierce demandg during rainy days, when every corner of the library is occupied by cooing couples, and during the soft, balmy nights, on the parade ground at concertsf or Cullum's balcony TARGET PRACTICE I . THE BULL-PEN during hops. Femmes of adorable beauty and tran- scending charm come to add the feminine touch that a true soldier always needs to keep him at his bestg fond parents, chaperoning them 'are all seized with the happy idea of making life as pleasant for the soldier lads, as they possibly can. V , . A . , From this combination last summer sprang many de- lightful entertainments, There were afternoon picnics at Fort Put, when everyone present ate, so much that camp was with difficulty tregainedg there were other equally pleasant ones on Flirtation, when the afternoon was all too short to contain the fun to be hadg and there were the supremely delightful concert picnics, tabooed' bythe Powers and doubly sweet for the sense of stolen sweets. The parade ground on a concert night is something no man will ever forget. Gentle night casting its cool mantle over the earth so cruelly berated all the long day by the fierce sun's -rays, enveloped in its soft starlight a camp where all was peace. Dotting the parade grounds were inerrygroups of fair maids and care-free cadets drinking in enjoyment with every draught of the cool night air. Their burning joss-sticks were like myriad fireflies-and who shall cavil if numbers of them were fragrant cigar- ettes burning brightly in the guise of joss-sticks under 1 , , PISTOL PRACTICE the friendly shelter of the darkness? There was a band, oh, yes! and music, but it ever seemed only an accom- paniment to the hum of conversation that furnished the real melody for the occasion. It was not strange in surroundings like these that Cupid was soon working overtime, ably assisted by the matchmakers of the visitors' seats. They seized avidi- ously on everything that had the smallest resemblance to a budding romance, and soon all a man had to do to attract their attention was to drag the same femme to-a hop and a concert, forthwith the busy matrimonial bureau de- cided that he was throwing himself away, or that the girl was too good for him, and consequently entered the lists to oppose or further the match, as they thought best. There was quite a list of alleged near-Benedicts-Ben Castle and George Dailey, Alec Maish and Jeff Bartlett, and lots more. Jimmie Steese at one time was all tagged XX AN " F" COMPANY COURT-MARTIAL sPooNo1D PREPARATION S and labeled by the matchmakers, but now he affirms that it didnlt take in his case and that he is still heart-whole and fancy free. Mt. Holly Springs, Pa., papers please copy, Hops were an ever popular amusement. Some men could have signed up for every one, and almost all men went to some. Looking back, the most note- worthy observation' that can be made about these hops was the exceedingly, the incredibly, small number of what our Middie friends term "gold bricks," and we more crudely call L. Pfs, that attended them. This, of course, was an immense item toward making them the thor- oughly high-class affairs that they were. Hops were certainly not the least of the factors that helped make our camp so merry. In midsummer Mrs. Larned and Mrs. Wfatson gave a cotillion for the first class, that was undoubtedly the most enjoyable function of the summer. Meph VVatson and Mick Staver, with Miss Page and Miss Vlfatson, were excellent leaders, and it was a great party. Everyone had the time of his foolish young lifefat supper, when everyone donned masks and weird paper costumes, there was almost a riot of mirth. No function ever ended amidst more general regret on the part of the guests. Nineteen hundred and seven revived the good old custom of camp illu- - mination after modern- izing and improving on the idea until its suc- cessful accomplishment turned out a credit to the Corps and a monu- ment to the industry and ingenuity of the class. Vlfe then trans- ferred our energies to Fisher's Island, where Camp Summerall shel- tered us for a pleasant week. Wfe returned for a day, to leave again for the annual five- -- -' day practice march, , -. .,,..,. . ., , M-fr ,. v t - - ' ,. .. . ,.. which, despite its great discomforts, proved not only instructive but extremely diverting. Then, finally, on the twenty-seventh of August, we struck our tents, and as the echo of the H1907 Never Again Ii' yell died away, Camp Schofield came to an end. VVe came to our camp in june, morose and almost sullen after a hard winter's dull, monotonous boning, we left it in August, revivified, hopeful, looking forward to June and bursting with the memories of the many pleas- ant incidents of the summer. As a class, Camp Schofield must mean much to us, for, however well we thought we knew each other before, the intimate associations of life in our last camp made us all know one another better, bound more ' " firmly the ties that bind classmate to classmate, and welded our class into a homogeneous unit in which the best of fellowship' a n d whole-hearted devotion exists. For th o s e things, then, are we in- debted to First Class Camp-it marks the be- ginning of our end as a class, but it forged the bonds that will bind us in spirit to our class- - mates as long as we .Y . --.,, --.W -.

X f. ,. 41-f' 'X The old Corps custom of winding up, an encampment with an illumination of camp had fallen into abeyance for a variety ofereasons, andas We were the last class left in the Academy that had ever participated in one, we decided to perpetuate the custom by holding one as a fitting finale for Camp Schofield. The objections found in some quarters were met by deciding to make the affair more of a carnival and less exclusively a spectacle. To this end we decided to have a vaudeville theatre, sicleshows, lots of costumed performers and many masqueraders to mingle with our guests. This was our distinctly novel feature, and it is to the exceedingly happy manner in which the idea was carried out that the great success of the 'f.Rue cle Folie"-as we named it-was due. , At eight o'clock on the evening of August 11th, the entertainment was inaugurated by a grand parade, in which every costumed performer of the Rue de Folie took part. Led by our own force of metropolitan Ipolice, the picturesque aggregation of German band, pretty nurse girls, Arabs, plantation clarkies, mountebanks, ani- mals and Wfild Wfest. desperadoes marched out through the main entrance around the parade ground and back to camp again. Then our friends were admitted, and soon all parts of camp were thronged with a keenly apprecia- tive assemblage. It was right here that the men Who 6 D had Worked so hard for the success of the affair were THE BEGINNINGS 226 amply repaid for all their toil by the genuine pleasure our friends took in everything designed for their amuse- ment, and their open-eyed astonishment at the marvels our ingenuity had conjured forth for their entertainment, The general parade, following a well-conceived plan, was the principal scene of mirth: it was the Rue de Folie. The entrance at the hedge opening was an arch beneath which all our guests passed, giving up their cards in return for large supplies of money-brass buttons- issued to them so that they might have the wherewithal to pay the admissions to the different shows. just within the grand entrance, a graceful flying arch of bunting and lanterns was thrown across the concourse, and farther in a very effective Roman arch towered, bearing inscrip- A BUSY CORN ER THE GENERAL PARADE IN THE AFTERNOON tions indicative of our joy at having left a large number of soirees behind us. Arc and incandescent lights and countless japanese lanterns made the scene as light as day, showing to great effect the fountains, roclceries and greeneries scattered about. Around the mound at the base of one of the large trees, a graveyard held minia- ture headstones, erected to the memory of departed and departing tacs. At the extreme rear was the clever sum- mer-garden, Filled with tables and chairs, where a large force of waiters served refreshments to the audience watchingithe excellent vaudeville entertainment. Here and there, mingling with the people, mountebanlcs and thimbleriggers plied their busy trade. Ric Morrison, in an impossible plaid, guessed the weights of all the THE SHOOT THE CHUTES femmes-loud barkers inveigled the gullible strollers into their side-shows-countrymen, coons and Diamond Dicks strolled about. A , The different companies all had specialties and were in brisk competition with each other for the patronage of the public. On one side of the street "A" Company had an amusing side- show whose barker, Rico Rice, was the loudest thing in camp both as to raiment and vocal powers, on the other a flying jinny, swings and periodical high dives by the famous Bosco furnished amusement. HB" Company had a shooting gallery with a most up-to-date equipment, which proved one of the most popular diversions, no less popular was the really beauti- ful grotto on the north side of the parade, with its delightfully isolated nooks for spooning, to say nothing of the ices served thereby attendants dressed as Mess Hall cooks. "C" Com- pany had a variety of attractions-an Trish village, an emer- gency hospital, where the most grewsome operations were per- formed in full View of the public, and a baby incubator, in charge of some very bewitching little nurse-maids. Ronald Johnson, in his too generous evening clothes and fierce mus- tache, invited all the world to take a crack at the tacs at "D" Company's expense, while across the way a realisticilndian village demanded attention. The most striking structure in camp was "E" Com.pany's shoot the chutes, which was kept busy all the eveningg it was deservedly the leading attraction next to the vaudeville, both for boldness of conception and in- genuity in construction. The plantation darkies' cabin in "F" Company was true to life, not a detail was lacking. Sis Mar- ley, Vlfamp Everett and Pute Arnold as old-time darkies were always funny, and when they attacked the watermelon they were side-splitting. In addition, the Hank company had a police court and a stage line running out somewhere and back, 228 which on every trip was held up by a gang of bloodthirsty road agents to the accompaniment of terrified screams from the femmes among the passengers. The most amusing feature of all was undoubtedly the vaudeville show in the summer-garden that Charlie Rogers and Phil Carroll made such a success. They had a packed house every time they appeared, and their screaming act got all the appreciation it so highly deserved. Willie Pickle, Swish, Honest John, the Com-they were all there at different times to bark their shins on the low ones hurled at them from the stage. The catering department for once was singularly efficient, and this, of course, added materially to the enjoyment of . everyone. During the entire evening the Rue de Folie presented a most ani- mated picture. The many lights illuminated a throng eager for pleas- ure and finding it. Pretty girls in fluffy summer frocks, cadets in gray and white, officers and sombre civilians, the gayly colored cos- tumes of the masqueraders-all combined to make a kaleidescope of color and mirth and laughter, truly strange at West Point. The close came all too soon, and as the last lingering guest passed out, she glanced back over her fair . IN THE INDIAN VILLAGE' shoulders for a last look at the scene' which had been the setting for such a joyous summeris night entertain- ment. 229 Q N. K- Q .5 . V .

'08 --- QRTHFIELD is a place much named by the men of the Corps, though very few know where or why or as what it is. E Northield Seminary is a school founded by Dwight L. Moody, on the banks of the Connecticut '. . -I River, in Massachusetts. Here each summer come college men to study those ideals which they wish to make the ideals of the institutions they represent. 'Zig The Wfest Point delegation to the 1906 Conference consisted of Chaplain Travers, Cadets McLach- lan, Vtfyman, Marley, Greene and Boone, of 1907, and Crreble, Lee, Godfrey, Matheson and Wlilliainjs, R. H., of 1909. Wfe left camp on the morning of June 25th, going by way of New York and New Haven, and got our first view of the Seminary just at twilight. A hack carried us from the station to the campus, where a ball game was in progress, and where, side by side, a big red "bubble" and an ox-wagon fur- nished seats for spectators. Wfehregistered at lVlarquand Hall, where we evoked so many cheers that we were glad to get out of the limelight and into the seclusion of our quarters in East Hall. lWe found the building pre-empted by about forty Harvard men, who assigned us some "third floor fronts" and invited us in to share their supper. Our windows looked out upon the blue Connecticut valley and its broad river bearing on its current thousands of great logs cut from the mountains to the north. 232 Harvard was our friend in need. lfVe helped them receive, we used their athletic goods, we helped them celebrate their victory over the Yale crew, we ate their mince pie and drank their cream. Wfe accompanied Mr. Eggleston, a Harvard man, on a geologizing ramble, and Greble accompanied Cate, the Harvard runner, to the finish of a hard cross-country obstacle race. Cornell, too, gave us a reception and showed herself very friendly. Wle found that our first ball game was with Mt. Hermon, the best team there, and in spite of Mr. Travers' good work at second base, we lost. Mt. Hermon won the tournament. Boone and Greble won places in the field meet, though they were handicapped by lack of running clothes. Let someone see that the next delegation takes athletic suits and shoes. The competition is keen and the crowd ex- pects much of Wfest Point in an athletic way. However prominent a part sports may play at Northield, that is not the object of the assembly. Wfe went there for work. Our daily program was as fol- lows: 8.15 a. m., lectures on various subjects, such as ' Problems of an American City fNew.Yorkj g 9,30 a. m,, group Bible classes in the Life of Christ, Early Prophets, etc.: 11.oo a. m., platform meeting in the Auditorium, at which such men as Mr. Spear, Mr. Miller, of Princeton, and Dr. Peabody spoke. Our afternoons were given up to athletics or to swimming or walking. In the evening we f:lI'S'E attended the beau- tiful sunset service on Round Top, and went from there to the Auditorium again for another splendid lecture, and finally, at 9.30 p. m,, we held a meeting of the dele- gation to talk over the day's work. Wfe covered the , entire program of the Conference. T The big event of the week was the Fourth of july celebration. The speech was a genuine spread-eagle American oration, and it aroused great enthusiasm. College yells rent the air, and the building shook with the measured tread of the delegations marching and countermarching in lock-step. N Our week at the Conference was busy, but pleasant, and we were naturally loath to leave such surroundings and such acquaintances. Many of our friends were at the station to bid us good-bye, and we gazed after them rather wist- fully from the rear platform of our nondescript "B, 8z M." train, till Northfield faded into the blue haze of the valley. l ' l 233 5325 f ti ..., iii-rw'-. , ' -V f ggi' rw ,My fx f-'- - A .a X A, .-, Akgln igfw-. .

But from the racing and chasing and 5 2 . - - Af 5 5 - hurrying to and fro, a mere observer might have thought it was 1 3 . the China Relief Expedition or an effort to out-Peary Peary to the North " Q. Pole. The lack of provisions later in the game gave considerable weight to the riff'-1 if ' Pr Polar voyage idea. The only thing lacking to make the affair look like a full-fledged Sunday-school picnic was the small boy to make funny remarks, and even that was pretty well done by some of our humorists-really funny people, you know. 'When we picked our horses, an artist among us could have made a profitable study of facial expression. See the happy smile on yon face. Its owner has secured Tea Tray. He is in luck. But observe the look of the gentleman three files to the left. He has drawn Harris. He is out of luck. The recording angel cuts his line of communication with this unfortunate for the day. Heid better. lf you would add to your vocabulary of strange, unique expressions keep close to the mcm on Harris, and you will get what you are looking for. The fight started at the cross-roads-everybody orienting his board and fixing his scale with a diligence that was quite surprising, saying soft, tender words to his horse meanwhile. As the day, grows older, you will see the roads and contours drawn with less diligence, and a shade of annoyance will come into the voice as Mr. Man .calls his horse, "You d?ear old thing," in' a voice so sweet and soothing that even Pinky will look up in pained surprise. There was a gentleman by the name of Lochinvar who came out of the west and did things on horseback that made people sit up and look around, also one Paul Revere took a midnight canter that has been talked about ever since. But both these heroes would have been outclassed by the poorest of the mob that followed in the wake of Pinky McDonough on that mad chase through the hills, counting the trees and fence-posts as we Hew by. Every now and 234 then, without a word of warning, Pinky would suddenly stop, and the squad in rear would also stop-suddenly, mostly in two layers. Before we could pick our- selves out of the tangle, Pinky's voice would be heard: "XNell, heah we ah! Now put in that bridge and these houses and take your next sightu-this last being some object but dimly outlined in the extreme background. And then off again at the same wild pace, only striking the more elevated portions of the terrain. Finally, when everybody had broken his pencil six times, worn out his patience and completely exhausted his meager stock of expressive words, the cav- alcade stopped in a lonesome spot to "partake of a frugal repast"-extremely frugal. When we left the Point, Thomas, with tears in his eyes, had pressed on each of us one small pasteboard box, the contents of which was a secret. No one had had sufficient nerve to investigate. It takes a strong and reckless man to get inqui- sitive when the Mess Hall is concerned, you know. Cautiously we opened our prize boxes and found the worst-one lemon, one onion and three sandwiches! VVasn't that weird? Now a sandwich is a sandwich under all conditions, and an onion can usually be utilized, but if you were left alone on a desert island with a lemon, what would you do? In civilization one uses them to make lemon-pie and toddies and also to hand to one's friends, but on a desert island? You give it up? So did we. We sat there looking blankly at those lemons for a minute, and then as one man we arose and threw them out of sight across the brook-and finished our din- ner on large chunks of air. To keep up the idea that variety is the slum of life, we had a small swim in the creek, and a more charming bunch of nymphs never fdisjgraced a woodland glade. Then that "Half a league-half a league" effect homeward, also done in record time. Much has been said about the "plugs" in the Riding Hall, but if you can find a bunch anywhere short of Maud S. and Dan Patch that can do it in less time than that return trip was made, trot them out, and Agony's racing car will have to retire. K The trip was done at last, and there were one hundred odd scrawls masquerad- ing as maps to show for it. But the main asset was the large and healthy appe- tite that made itself clamorous-and under its influence we sank into our chairs at supper and cried with loud acclaim, "Hash, please l" - Q 235 ' ii is ff?

KSOM' Vai!!-,gy Q .sway ji! 238 I iw AN . ,-.- FEI H E General Meigs is a large, roomy tug, with a deck covered in from abaft the mizzentops'l gasketsg but when one hun- dred and eleven cadets, who had turned in at one and turned out again at four, trooped aboard and proceeded to impro- vise beds, she very soon became con- verted into' a very passable example of the proverbial sar- dine-can. 'Men slept everywhere-on deck, in the boats and on the piled-up luggage below. If you wanted to move ten feet you had to convert yourself into a human juggernaut and leave the imprint of your number tens on about thirty prostrate forms before you could reach the cornpanionway and gain the lower deck. It must not be inferred that everybody slept. Oh, no! When We passed the Rocks, and feminine forms appearedlat the windows and fluttering towels waved us good-by, the old stand-bys, Red McChord, Bunny Crafton and Inj Hayden, rushed madly to the rail and waved a frantic response, adding insult to injury by ending with the most broken-backed, henpecked class yell that was ever Hung at the atmosphere. A Before the General Meigs reached New York everybody awoke refreshed and stayed either on deck or down in the engineers' mess, where the cook, a financier, had cor- nered the market and dispensed pie, pop, sandwiches and fruit to all comers who had the price. He really proved a blessing, though, as his supplies eked out the extremely short dinner and supper Tommy sent from 'the Mess Hall for the haughty M. D. to dole out to us. just as the day began to fade and the sun sank in the west behind a bobtail Hush, Fisher's Island came in sightg before dark we drew up alongside the dock. A short but dusty march brought us to the shore on the Atlantic side of the island, where our camp, six little lines of "A" wall-tents, with a few larger ones for the tacs, if Q THE BEACH was already prepared for us. Wfe had had supper on the boat, so as soon as we had chucked up for the tents and sorted out our baggage, we made a rush for the beach and plunged-no, crawled cautiously over the fringe of water- worn rocks onto the sand beach, and thus got gradually into deep water. Old, Ocean seemed glad to see us, and we were most assuredly glad to see him. After about ten minutes' enjoyment, punctuated with much,yelling and a few mosquito bites, We returned to camp and turned in, some immediately, the others after they had lit up and devoted a little time to passing their favorites under the hammer. The next morning our work began. VVe were taken to all the 'fortifications and the proposed work outlined to us. 'Then Colonel Wliistlei' lectured to us on the Coast Artillery, and his genial ways and thorough knowledge of his subject made many a convert right' then. After this we were divided into squads and assigned positions for drill. The drills turned out to be not only interesting but enjoyable, andthe night drills, when the three search- lights were going, completely captivated us all. I Several very enjoyable social affairs took place .during our stay, and in one of them Bane-the original Wild- cat slaughterer Bane, the upright, majestic Bane- gummed it cold. Mrs. Ducrot sent him an invitation, something. like this: HMrs. Ducrot desires the pleasure ofiCadet Banels company atf, etc. Bane, walking on air because HF" Company had made such an impression, sent 1 REVELLE THE ONE LOOKING-GLASS an answer that probably made Mrs. Ducrot "chuck a fit" when she read it. Here it is: "Cadet Banels Com- pany accepts with pleasure the kind invitation of Mrs. Ducrotf' etc, p The Mo1no-not-to Cgenerally pronounced Monoto- nousj Inn was a favorite resort, especially in the evening, and the Beach Inn vied with it in popularity, although the latter was sometimes a little too crowded. Camp Summerall-'XNr,ight was generally deserted in the evening, but -was lively enough during thelbreathing- timesbetween the mOf11i11g,f1fi11S. ,, There being only one looking-glass and one box of blacking in camp, "Avenue Swishf' and "Pinky Alleyf' where these treasures were located, were always thronged. One morning, when the looking-glass was in active operation-in fact, was doing double work-an ap- parition emerged from the tac's tent at the end of the avenue, came swiftly toward the crowd, and saying with an injured air, 'KI thould like to bowwow my glath," seized the article and returned, with all the dignity a swishing nightgown will allow, to the 'forbidden ground." At the time of the capture Staver was in front of the glass trying to see the top of his nose, and as he had a skag tucked jauntily between his lips, he had no show and carried all his skag-papers up to the monster's tent-"all this at Camp Honest John at or about reveille, August 14th, I9o6." I THE ONE BOX OF BLACKING For the first three days we drilled steadily at the 12-inch, 6-inch and I5-pounder batteries, and on the fourth day we had the target practice to which we had been looking forward so eagerly. By this time'we were all pretty well hardened and so sunburned that we were almost as red as Castle was when Rice filled his hands with napkin-rings that day at dinner. The 12-inch guns the newly installed battery of 6-inch guns. There Galula Lang and judge Moose earned great applause by mak- ing a clean score of IOO per cent., in spite of the fact that the caps dropped off three of the projectiles during fiight. They also shot the flag off the target, and when Colonel Wfhistler presented it to the class our satisfaction was complete. a. . lik ki- f RAMMING made a tremendous roar and shock, but were not very accurate, in spite of the fact that Bane and Eastman were doing the pointing, and ,Awny Hand was at the telephone. However, the tug which was towing the tar- gets escaped unhurt, so that we really had much to be thankfulvfor. The afternoon of the same day we initiated SIGHTING It was at this practice that Steese courteously informed a Major of the Coast Artillery, who, in civilian clothes, ,was watching the firing, "that the shock and noise were .very great, and he would probably find it better to go to the rear and put some cotton inhis ears." Wfhen the caps dropped off the projectiles, an event that puzzled every- body, the supposed civilian came to the front and Jim retired to the rear, to put some cotton in his ears, prob- ably. The whole of the fortifications were thoroughly equipped electrically, but salt air plays havoc with elec- trical instruments, and the telautographs and other deli- cate instruments seemed to be chronically out of order, tance, racing frantically in from the beach in a vain hope of making it on time. Those who were too sunburned to enjoy a salt bath, took walks up to the village and around the island, or loafed around camp. Wfill we ever forget the day we came home from a drill and found Charles the Fat strapped by the heels to a lamp-post at the end of Pinky Alley? A fat man in THE 6-INCH GUN and for this reason we learned very little about them. The sea bathing was our favorite recreation. Before breakfast, between drills, and even after supper, enthu- siasts ran for the beach and enjoyed a few minutes in the surf. Long after the assembly sounded for any formation there were always three or four stragglers in the dis- TI-IE. I2-INCH GUN adversity is surely an object of sympathy, as witness Jumbds ride that afternoon in Camp Schofield. Jumbo, by the way, was a busy man, and a great man, in Camp Summerall-lNright. Vlfhen he dropped his head coquet- tishly to one side and said, f'Leggings will be worn," the bystanders scurried for their respective tents and put on - I THE PRIMORDIAI.. BEACH their best trousers, knowing from past experience that before assembly Jumbo would be round again with the news that leggings would not be worn. Sometimes the order was changed several times, and on these occasions we either did about tive successive lightning-change acts, or waited to see whichruniform would be in vogue at as- sembly4and then gota late. t One part of our instruction in the seacoast work was in theqlaying and operation of mines. Every day a squad was detailed for the work, and after. some preliminary in- struction in the -charging and firing mechanism of the mines and in the electrical connections,'was-taken outwon the torpedo-planter to.se'e theimethods of. laying' floating and submarine mines.

Another trip we took by detail was across to Fort Terry, six miles by water, forthe purpose of drill. The motion of the launch, on the two or three occasions when the water was rough .was a catastrophe for some, notably our Captain Booth, who lay on his back on the cabin roof, whiter than a plebe after his first double-time in a dresscoat, and wailed feebly to judge Moose to "over- rule -the motion."sA In View of his irresponsible condition the usual punishment for such a I-Iaydenesque quip was omitted. Many other things, too numerous to describe, happened during our week's visit at Fort Wfright. Colonel VVhistler's reception was a unique and very successful one, and the camp was decorated for days with the favors from the "Quills' and Spoonoids' Germanfl Wfe saw and applauded the parade by the two artillery companies, and learned from the King of Avenue Swish that "Every- body on an army post goes to bed at tattoo, Mr. Chilton." At our meals, which we ate in one of the company messes, the Quartet rendered selections, the favorite being that ballad of Ric Morrison's, entitled "All Around Her Rubber-neckf' a revised version of the F. F. inter- pretation being as follows: l All around her rubber-neck she wore a yellow ribbong She wore it all the year around, except the month of May, And if anybody asked her where the 'ell she got it, She got it from her true love, Ph-h-t-far away. VV'ell, we certainly hated to leave all this good time for the joys of the practice march, but on Saturday morning the General Meigs called for us, and with a last look at our little camp we trooped aboard. Back in the distance a voice was wailing, "XNagon, oh, wagon! wagon, halt!" and we hoped-well, never mind what we hoped, it didn't happen, he was still with us when we got back to Wfest Point. 1 4 J.

As the Horse Show officials sent us an invitation to be .71 I present on the last day of the Show, it is to be presumed that the first rumor was merely one of the is ,T numerous ingenious ones which joe provides for the amusement and subsequent disillusionment of the Corps gossips and knockers. R Wfe left here at the usual time, about one olclock, and arrived at the usual time-about one ""-' 'J hour late. Wfe marched to the hall in thc column-of-Sunday-school-picnics formation so much affected by Tactical Department chaperones, and, with eyes somewhat blinded by the unaccustomed glare of the potassium lights, we trooped into the Society Arena. V The principal events of the afternoon, which were competitions of various classes of cavalry horses, had for us all a peculiar interest. The horses were perfect, but a little "individual work with the aids, gentlemen," would have made them a little more conformable to our "fixed opinion" of the ideal cavalry mount, and Pot Shedd said so. Four-in-hands, trotters, carriage pairs and single-harness horses followed each other in succession until seven o'clock came, bringing with it a short but cordial reception by Colonel Fellows, and another enjoyable function in the shape of a most excellent dinner. The evening with the hunters and high jumpers in the arena was a revelation to us all, and even Rose and Hay- den had to acknowledge that they couldn't have done better themselves. There is something about the clean, easy jump of a good hunter that is absolutely irresistible to most men, and to the cadet who has tried to take even a low hurdle on some of the erratic kangaroos that congregate in the riding hall, their graceful spring seems like a dream of Paradise. When the last hunter had been led from the ring we heaved a long sigh and turned our faces toward the old familiar 42d Street Ferry, and one o'clock saw us home. 246 'E " x T T:"',' Z J ' ' ' i 1"" it 3,142 -ld l l, lx .J Ln ESL ', '- " 'A 'i 1 , , , 5 5 A T fiil ll .

Saturdays and Sundays excepted. We took possession of the two stoves and imagined we were in Manchuria waiting for the North Pole Limited. The officers 'J' and "others" whom we took along for obvious reasons conspired to get possession of the stove. They sent the "Superintendent of our soup house" around with "Form your sections outside on the platform !" Now Steese had just ordered Major Shellac to "shut that door l" and his haste in complying showed that they were properly disciplined. so. just to humor them, we went outside. When we returned to our stoves P sub zero, H-ungry, et cetera were huddled around the coveted treasures. but about five minutes of Skee's perfusive knocking and Flipper's choice slang C?D reinforced with a few selections from the Black Hand, cleared the room of Ignorance and Religion. After a few of the reckless had been severely chastised for false "all out's." the train actually came right up to the station and halted. On entering the station at Albany, at the end of our journey, everyone suddenly stopped. There undoubtedly was the "Bu-ra-ra-ra-row- Howze," but where was jumbo? There! seated on a stand with a large megaphone. he-no, it was not hey only the train announcer. But he had Jumbo beat. for we heard one word distinctly. At Troy we were marched up the hill and kept at attention by our dear Willie Harris while the officers "passed the time o' day." From this predicament our half-frozen senses were suddenly aroused by three gray hgures approaching, one-half hour late-Castle. whose matrimonial intentions should have kept him on the straight and narrow: McChord, of the silver 'tongue and throat that rusted under the action of the water he drank while on Christmas leave and caused him to spend one month at Gandy's homeg and gentle, modest. little Ray Hill. Why were they late? "Of course. we don't know. but we can conjecture." l The trip through the construction shops was interesting, especially the I6-inch gun, concerning which Harry Pfeil askedf "How many times has it been fired, Major?" "Neverg this is merely a wooden model of the original,'l the Major replied! Cexit Pfeilb. Hungry also made himself amusing by asking why they did not manufacture the projectiles with blunt points, to save all the expense and trouble of capping' them. The Major answered, "These are some old-style projectiles which we do not like to throw away, so we cap them." All laughed but Hungry. X The ladies of the Post-what could we do without them ?-gave us a very pleasant luncheon, at which jeff Bartlett upheld his reputa- tion by showing an affinity for "the beautiful" unsurpassed by the most persistent of our spoonoids. Uncle Billy Ganoe. Three minutes after his arrival he was strolling off across the Post in a manner that would not have pleased a certain young lady in Boston. The return trip was without incident except a few broken car windows and bruised heads. Our dreams of artillery bills, increased pay and matrimony came to an end with West Point! All out li The officers took the bus "up the hill" and we took-the road. 247 A,CAMP ON THE PRACTICE MARCH 248 INCH reveille the elements had been haggling with each otherg but in spite ol the lowering sky and mon- E5 bustling! grel XVest Point weather, the United States Corps of Ants had been Everything from the flapping legging ol Fauntley Miller to the tuba tones of Maish suggested the thrift of this formic humanity. In short, Camp Schoneld was about to make a six days' pilgrimage into the wilderness of the ultra-Hudsonians, there to wrestle with Security, Information and "Actual Conditions"-to pluck from the tree of experience the fruit that Teacher NYa.rDepartmenthad so glowingly described in her tactical primers. - Disgorged at Garrison's from the snailing ferry, the dFZ70lI1IUIil'C'S of Cullum began at once to affiliate with Mother Dirt and to grow beardsg all of which was in preparation of the minor battle about to happen.

But that's not all. Did yougever wear a King Arthur cadet blouse. a Sir Launcelot gray shirt, carry a gun and your complete household paraphernalia on your shoulder? And then, did you ever try to climb a hill covered with fifteen 249 THE WAGON TRAIN million loose pebbles and inclined at an obtuse angle? Well, all you need in a case of that kind is the command, ':Double-time!" It is very helpful. You prick up your ears, if they -are not already melted, recognize something familiar in the sound and then-run. - Oh, yes, you run! You run from every pore. Your motion is somewhat soggy, but you press right on, keep- ing up a really reckless running light. And that was the first day out! "Of the fragments there were twelve baskets full !" They caiied it a problem. It was. One would conservatively say, however, rather too well deline- ated, there was a little too much expression in it-a sort of plunge for the answer by a high dive through the solu- tion. N As the old proverb repeats, "Not every drill has its double-timing," and recompense is somewhere. Five hundred dusty, sweaty, tired, hungry men looked from the height of the last hill in Nelsonville and beheld the evidences of their first camp. All their soul was in their incandescent eyes, for was not that the smoke of din- ner? Had not the Hdoughty 'Q. M."' forestalled the ravenous retinue? And was not he to receive a laurel or two from the chief Archon for his pains? Oh, yes, that night IeH went to bed like the "ten-talenti' boy-a gladder and a fatter man. But the coffee was still boiling and the odorous viands were still stewing.

Yet the direful, famished cries die away with the apportionment of the last ladleful of "slum,l' and the noisy horde subsides. They are eating. Fellow-pilgrim, did you ever take time out to watch a cadet on a practice march semi-intermit- tently masticate? There he sits on the ground in full squat, with side hill for table, stub- ble for- tablecloth, tin-pan for plate, and "stew" for soup, meat, entree, relish and dessert. And eat?

THE MOUNTAIN BATTERY A ROUGH TRAIL Camp vespers, fond reader, is, briefly defined, a gather- ing of military helots clustered at the feet of a super- military hierarchy. The latter seeks to expound. The former sits upon the ground. Each endeavors to emulate Napoleon. From the ponderous heights of wisdom comes the first sonorous note of the opening number. The Commandant reads the problem, disclos- ing the sealed orders given to the commanders on each side. He states the objective, the time alloted, and the apportionment of troops. To this each of the opposing chiefs responds with the disposition of his forces, his method of attack or defense and an argument upholding his method. Argument? One should not say argument. Heaven forbid its introduction here! Qne should rather say that there ensues a sort of antiphonal .concert in which each opposinff tac chants soulfull the Grlarino m , Y o S defects of the other, until the poor embryonic Marlbor- oughs gain a rather confused and discordant tactical con- ception. But doubt does not long' remain. The sibilant tones of the chief umpire are the next to cleave the ozone. He tells you why. He settles all. In your mind there is not an interrogation left. Mother Cause becomes the legitimate ancestor of lVillie Effectg the earth re- FROM FOUR TO SIX P. M. ' THE LIGHT BATTERY volves around the sun once more. He runs the whole gamut-from the heightsiiof 'svllogistic eminence to the depths of truth ad homliiiem.. And the "scrapper', and 'fsc1'appee" chew their nails in silent anguish. - 1 ,To the casual observer, the night encampment of a cadet practice march presents unusual features of novelty. The Sentinels, the precise rows of tents illumined by the desul- tory camp-fire, are spectacles new to the scarce inhabitant of the hill and the boulder. But to the man of keener per- ception the place has a somewhat lean and shrunken ap- pearance. Thetents, which were to-day, are no more. They have been absorbed. Here, guileless reader, is the paradox. '1fOO MANY COOKS Inside each standing tent is another tent of similar dimen- sions. But the owner thereof? Vlfhere is he? Ah, blessed is the man who folds his tent like a doughboy and silently, steals away, for he shall not be discovered at taps, neither shall he endure the 'ordeal by shelter-tent. If, however, you happen to be an unfortunate of the sad remainder, your hrst perplexity is one of dimensions -fitting a No. 7X2 tent over a No, IO man. Shall your feet be turned to open heaven or shall the crystal night envelop your beatilic brow? VVhich shall win, pedal or pate? According to the conformation of the abode and of your own body there seems to be no compromise. You decide, finally, that your pillow shall be outside, the ventilation is more abundant. So with one blanket above and one underneath, you undertake the journey of sleep. You have not progressed very far, however, before you are conscious of a sort of transfixed feeling. You investi- gate. After digging one stone and two cornstalks from beneath your spareribs and brushing a crushed cricket from the back of your neck, you resume the operation. "It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven." A move! A start! A lunge! A plunge! And you are awake with this quotation rumbling somewhere back in your sub-con- --.ik LO. MARVEL! FOR THE SUN SHINESI scious stratum. It is raining. You feel that your cold shower- bath of the morning is rather premature. The moisture seems to be a little overzealous. Ch, to be a turtle! to have some line of retreat. Yet the tent is already so full of yourself that you fear that by withdrawing your head from the exterior in- clemency, you might congest and overcrowd yourself. But finally, by a system of coil and' collapse, you gather your dampened head within. XfVith all your parts assembled, in this state you begin to try it over. This time the spell is longer. But when you do awake, the blow is compensation for working overtime. Great morsels of Greenland! What an intensity of absolute zero there is! You remember having had legs in your recent wakeful moments. But where are they now? Lost! Lost! Hopelessly lost! No, you haven't any. Finally, courage aids you in an exploration. Care- fully feeling down over your side you come upon two cold clubs having the general shape of legs, and slowly returning reason helps you to analyze. This is the diagnosis: Legs dead-complication of crumple and cold. And there you lie and shiver-all but your legs. And they will, in time. Hope should never be abandoned. And what is this attempt at covering which you hold greedily with both hands? That isn't a blanket, is it? No, fool- ish fellow! that is a doilie. Forbid the recital of the remaining tortures until dawn. It is only necessary to say of those nights that the stock on future punishment went up many points, and no one ever summoned nerve enough to inquire w-hy Bruce Buttler's face at reveille looked like a cross between a nine-day kitten and a noon-day owl. 255 DINNER Wfith ablutions half performed, a short breakfast and sider its point as the outlet of a road which traverses its a few hasty raids on a privy sack of 'lBull Durhamfl the length. Its sides would be two impregnable hills, camp of yesterday disappears, and another day of toil is the right one having a gap below the horizontal opened. This time a preparatory march of three miles line. This line represents a smaller hill flanking the road, called Fort Hill- a promi- ' nent stronghold during the Revo- luiion. Intrenched on this, the "Browns" must hold off a superior force of "Blues" coming from the bottom of the HA." Three hours is the time limit. The defenders, under Cap- tain El, have one field piece, one- half troop of cavalry, one company of infantry and two mountain guns, while the offensive is composed of a troop and a half of cavalry, five companies of infantry and two field pieces, commanded by Captain S--.

Accordingly, leaving 3 fgw of his Cavalry as 3 256 pleasant target for the 'Browns' " guns, he turns to his right, finds an old road which cuts around the lower hill and comes up in rear of the gap, at all times com' pletely invisible to the enemy. There he masses, in the woods six hundred yards from the Browns' left, his entire force. After firing with all his guns, he suddenly urges forward the infantry, which, by rushes, charges the hill and comes up under the very nose of the defender. This ends the confiict. The whistle blows and the "Browns" accept the inevitable. This, in the main, is the problem. But there are many items which facilitate and retard its solution. Contem- plate. for a moment, him of the cavalry patrol. Riding along in his tireless quest for information, desirous of the distances to and names of certain landmarks, his eye suddenly lightens with joy as he fastens his atten- tion on the fossilized native of the region. "My good fellow, how far is it to Smithville?" "XVell,,' an- swers the bearded one, "it's pretty fur," and upon further inquiry, "it's quite a piece back." "VVell, but who lives in that next place ?', HT dunno: I only been here about two year." Discouraged and tired, the weary scout returns to his main body, which is endeavoring to conceal itself in the small wood in the center of a very open country. And there seems to be some chance of success until suddenly there comes riding straight for the lonely clump of trees the vagarious umpire. His fluttering white standard salutes alike both friend and foe. Cf course, the enemy. noting his destination, would not suspect the presence of troops in the grove. Cf course, this "judge -of field events" would be riding toward that isolated spot pur- posely to take luncheon. No, charitable reader, the enemy is not a dolt, as the fire of his batteries soon tell. But the umpire is not to be criticised. Ah, no! He sim- ply reminds one of the perverse and busy dog, who is, when needed, always beyond the hearing of the loudest whistleg but being safely ensconsed in your favorite Morris chair and indulging in a brief holiday with Morpheus, then it is that he is wont to sneak up and to stick his cold, wet nose in your ear and sneeze. Thus, onward for five more days, marched the plod- ding cadet. Although magnificent distances separated his various camps, yet there was much the same simple repetition of crude manners, rough life and incessant duty. time JOYS even over And while he joyfully anticipated for the first his return to VVe-st Point, yet many spontaneous crowded the dusty days of practice march. And if the toil was prominent, he confidently knew that that path he was slowly and certainly overtaking the shoulder-strap. 258 , A 5-55,5 ,Wy NX' vi V25 I' :.1r..:-- ,- - I-1-. . - - ' . -, f , . 1 ' 5 fied, ,J , . 127- A . , fff1eiftfr'P1 15.

CHILTON 260 SYNOPSIS C' ' HE Plutoniansn is a musical extravaganza told in a foreword, a prologue and two acts. The foreword gg Tj leads up to the situation in the play and is as follows: Mildred Gushing, an American heiress, while traveling in India receives from an Indian prince a magic locket containing information by which one can get to the Elysian Fields and there procure a treasure of fabulous worth. She is to give it to her fiance on her wedding day, and the information it 1... contains will bring them both happiness all their lives. On her return she is wooed and won by a grafter, Charlie Longblossom, who no sooner gets his hands on the locket than he decamps. Mildred employs the famous detective, Hemlock jones, to recover her property. He accidentally runs across information which convinces him that Longblossom has gone to the Elysian Fields, whither he goes, leaving Mildred and her friends to follow on her yacht, only to find, on arriving there, that Longblossom has gone to Hades. Again he follows, and there in the throne room of Pluto the prologue opens. Pluto has just learned that Longblossom, whom he held prisoner, has escaped, taking with him the shade of Cleopatra, who is necessary to procure the treasure for him, when Hemlock jones arrives on his airship. He explains his errand, and Pluto dispatches the shade of Napoleon to assist in the capture. As they leave he gives them the solemn warning that if Longblossom is not taken at midnight on exactly two weeks from that date, they, and all with them, will be hurled instantly into Pluto's abode "by a horrible transformation." The first act opens in Elysia with Mildred, her brother Tom, his fiancee, Butterfly Bubbles, and their friends, awaiting the detective. He arrives with Napoleon, tells them of his trip and explains the conditions. He puts his assistant, Scraggles, in charge of the undertaking. The latter makes a wooden attempt to capture the fugitive, but is frustrated by Cleopatra, who brings to life a statue of Mercury and rescues Longblossom. They procure the treasure and Hee to Bohemia, still pursued. . The second act is in a beer-garden in a Bohemian city. Longblossom, finding that the treasure consists of Egyp- tian bonds, decides to go to Egypt to get them cashed and at the same time free himself from Cleopatra, of whom he has tired. But Hemlock jones has been on the track, and just before midnight on the fatal date he attempts to capture the two in the garden. But he is just a moment slow, for, as he goes to seize Longblossom, the clock strikes twelve. Chaos and darkness ensue, and the lights reappearing, find everyone in Hades kneeling in terror before the throne of Pluto. fn sepulchral tones he tells them they have gotten an absence on carrying out his orders and there- fore are doomed to remain with him in Hades.

EW, indeed, are the cuisineers that can charm the fanciful tastes of the Corps of Cadets, and happy is the chef XE whose savory products of pots and pans bring to five hundred hungry mouths and critical noses the V, tantalizing promise of satiety. Such a dish is Slum. You smile, you think my praise is exaggerated, you l ul think so marvelous a concoction can be merely the idlest of epicurean dreams to tickle, perhaps, the mind P-i3'fI:" of a fanciful gourmet, but never to be realized by his more practical stomach. You are wrong. Long f have we of the Corps loved that choicest of tidbits, that yummiest of the yummy-Slum, and when the "' L 'J West Point gneiss of these gray walls shall have succumbed to the tireless siege of sun and frost, we pray that Slum may still issue from the sacred domain of the chief cook. The historic setting of the military spectacles that charm the visitor at West Point, the thrilling, throbbing notes of the Hades Kittens, the ever-present dignity of the military-all these, no doubt, lend majesty and moment to the other- wise petty details of cadet life, but a far greater, more living, potent force is that which emanates from the grand old bowl that furnishes the gray-clad warrior with his frugal potatoes, carrots, peas, beans, onions, parsnips, ham, mutton and beef. The very stones about this old Academy may clamor in historic appeal, but how far greater is the senti- ment attached to the time-honored mixture that was once set before a Grant, a Lee, a Sheridan l-and perhaps it has not even been taken out of the bowl since. Yes, the shrill notes of martial music may thrill to the marrow, but how much greater is the thrill if one glance into that ancient accumulation, when the pulses leap and the eyes snap at the thought of the untold possibilities which float and swim in the depths of that picturesque fluid. Build in the deserts of the Sahara a new military academy, scatter the musicians to the four corners of the earth, and you will still have West Point. Strip each ceremony of every vestige of the soldier's profession, and you will still have half a thousand men. But take not from its throne that regal Slum, or your landmarks will fade into oblivion, the very earth will swallow the rocks on which you stand, five hundred strong young bodies will crumble into dust, and five hundred souls will be cadets in a brighter, fairer world. And as we live from day to day, From ages back it came to us, Whatever may befall, And as the years unroll, Our troubles vanish at the thought We hope our grandsons' sons may draw Of Slum in old Grant Hall. Their life-blood from that bowl. Aye, tear these gray walls stone from stone, A new West Point may comeg But take not from its hallowed seat The sacred dish of Slum! 284 n? lwiilfif- 1 W fi . E' N x.

Because they always turn out the Lights just before Reveille. Can I tell you the Reason they let them burn all Night and then put them out just before Reveille?

If the rain had any sense of the fitness of things, it would be beating mercilessly on the pane and driving in Htful gusts up the rain-swept street. But as there is no pane to beat on and the only street in sight is the company street, you will have to forgive it. Really, it is doing the best it can. It has soaked you through as you came from dinner, it has taken every bit of starch out of your white F-Juli trousers, it has disgracefully rusted the bore of your rifieg and through a hole in your tent it is pleas- antly dropping on the back of your neck as you lie on your tummy gazing out 'into the company street. it There was really no reason why it should rain to-day. It was well known to the weather authorities that you were going walking with I-Ier this afternoon. Oh, well! It is not without its recompense. It is barely possible that there will be no parade. That will help some. Yes, you could go to the library, but what's the use? You might just as well go, though. There is nothing to do here, and it's just possible that She may come. So you Flounder out into the lake, and by a clever combination of breast and side stroke you reach the library without drowning. You are undecided what to read on a day like this, but, after all, it cloesn't matter, so you find what you're looking for and make for your favorite corner, thinking to sit there and feel sorry for yourself all afternoon. Horrors! it is already occupied by a cadet more lucky than you, for his She is seated beside him, and from the injured air that meets you as you enter the room you take it that you weren't expected, so you melt into the middledistance-and leave him to look looks and think thoughts at I-Ier. You try again. You make for the corner by the writing-desk and are about to be comfortable when the man writing at the desk turns, and his pained look says, 'fReally, I had hoped I wouldn't be annoyed like this." Being of a sympathetic nature, you withdraw and the man turns with a relieved sigh to page thirty of the epistle. There is only one other vacant chair and you make for it, resolved to stick it out this time. But you have overlooked the couple at the next window, and though their conversation is conspicuously marked "Private," you canlt help but hear parts of it and it reminds you so forcibly of-well, you don't hold out long, but holler for help and hurry out to talk to Ratsky. After a while you feel better and listen with interest to the tale of how, when Ratsky was a student in Germany, he had such a big occasion on fifty-one cents that he still reckons his dates from that time. In the middle of the conversation you happen to look out the windowf It has cleared up! And there will be parade, after all!

At such a time, a lady and her daughter came up to a hop and perforce stayed all night at the hotel. It was a large hopg the place was crowdedg they could only obtain a room in the annex. Now if the hotel is passef, the annex is a superannuated fright, one of the cases where the child has decayed faster than the parent. The room was in keeping. A threadbare carpet scantily coyered the uneven floor. The furniture had come into the world, many years before, already old and cranky. There was a door, of course, and one window. On retiring, after the hop, the ladies felt obliged to leave the window openg it was the only visible means of venti- lation. The night was bitterly cold. An icy wind shrieked down the river, it hurled itself against the doddering old pile. Shutters banged, windows creaked, a million crevices admitted the chilly blast. Through the open window it raged into the room-all-pervading, heart-congealing. The two guests huddled in bed had eked out the scanty hotel coverings with their wraps and their motor coats in a vain effort to keep out the cold. They could not sleep. Finally they came to the conclusion that ventilation, while highly desirable, could be too expensiveg they determined to close the window. . But who was to climb out of bed into the greater cold of the room? The daughter not unreasonably claimed that her mother, being on the outside, could with less discomfort accomplish the task. The mother, disidaining to enter into any argument, coldly exerted her maternal authority and the daughter prepared herself for the chilly journey. After many preliminary shudderings and loud chattering of teeth, the young lady essayed the fatal plunge! Oh! o-oh! I-low cold the floor was to bare feet! B-r-r-r -how that icy wind did s-sting! Darn it, who put that old chair just where no one could help but bark her shins against it? Cold? Say, gentle reader, an icicle graving on frozen mercury alone can trace the words to express the cold that scantily clad damsel felt. At last she reached the window. The frame stuck, but desperation gave her strength: she pulled it down with a bang. She felt herself already growing less cold when-Heavens! what's this? There were no window panes in that' frame! 296 THE BATH '- COMELY dame arrived one afternoon at the hotel and was shown to her spacious apartment by the Swede EE porter. She noticed that a bath-room was near her room, so, wishing to remove the stains of travel, she ,Eli went to prepare her bath. But though she turned all the faucets on full, no water flowed. Puzzled, she returned to her room and rang. The Swede porter in due course appeared, 'II can't make the water run in the bath-room," she said to him. - "What do you want Water for?', was the SWede's intelligent contribution to the colloquy. "You want to take a bath? You wait." He ambled off downstairs and returned with a large blue ticket, which, in consideration of the sum of fifty cents, entitled her to the privileges of the tub, including hot water. The half-dollar changing hands, the Swede took himself off to report to the Mogul behind the desk, who tinkered with the plumbing somewhere, and lo! the water flowed. The lady had her bath. The next morning, on arising, her first thought was for her tub. Great was her vexation to discover that, as on the previous day, no water was to be had. Piqued, she rang violently. The same Swede appeared. A "What's the matter with your old hotel P" she hurled at him. "I can't get any water this morning." "What do you want water for this morning?l' was the i unmoved answer. "VVhy !" she angrily replied, "to take a bath, of course." "A bath? Huh! you had a bath yesterday."

RABBING the pointer with one fell swoop and elbowing his way to the blackboard, the philosophic and as philharmonic Billie Ganoe reeled off the following: , E I "Sir, I am required to discuss the tempered scale. Now the tempered scale is to music what steam it -I is to navigation. It is its great impetus and developer. Back there in the dark past, when it was pos- sible to use only the simple diatonic, and consequently when men were ignorant of the existence of J keys, one could render a theme only in a very circumscribed diatone series. There were no modula- "" tions, no arias, no extensive cadenzas, and no fugues. There remained a cheerless sameness and a great lack of latitude of interpretation. There was neither color nor ingenious shading. Sappho, on her Lesbian harp, rendered her songs with nine tones in diatonic. Likewise Sophocles constantly listened to a chorus whose range was of a mere eight-tone extension. The limited scope of former technique impressed its narrowness not only on the musician, but extended even to the poet of Rome. The light of music had gone out in the monotony of the restricted diatonic. But from this chaotic condition there arose, like 'the Phoenix,' the alleviation of this miserable musical degradation. After repeated efforts the tempered scale of equal intervals found its perfection in the harpsichord. In this instrument came the great musical renaissance. Light had dawned. The tempered scale made it possible for the erstwhile musician to become a recognized master. And the world looks to-day on the 'Requiem' of Mozart and the 'Sonatas' of Beethoven, and renders homage. It views the 'Largoi of Handel, the 'Serenade' of Schubert and the 'Fugues' of Bach and Mendelssohn with astonishment. It listens eagerly to the tuneful operas of Verdi, Wagner and Gounod. And to the 'Etudes' of Chopin and the 'Rhapsodies' of Liszt it bows down and worships. All of this great uplift is due entirely to one source-the tempered scale." . When Bill stopped, Tubby Westervelt gazed at him in his calmly speculative way. Finally he heaved a long sigh and said: "Well, Mr. Ganoe, you know a great deal more about music than I do. Take your seat." And all he did was to hand Billie a 1.2.

' Though with tacs I had a big reverse, I'n1 thankful now that it was no worse, Though I scraped, and scoured, and shined, and rubbed , Y I .
