SCOTT Superinfendent United States Military Academy sbtgrr its attempts HE Howitzer Board of the Class of 1908 has had, like all of its predecessors of the past few years, T a twofold object to accomplish. In the first place, for the future reference of the class, we have endeavored to record by both pen and picture the story of " our four well-spent years" at the , Military Academy, "with particular reference to" the events of our first class year. ln the second place, it has been our purpose to enable the graduates of former years and our friends in general to glance at the Academy as it is to-day. i In addition to the above we have attempted to make this Howitzer more of a Corps book than it has been in the past, by presenting to the undergraduate body the history of the development of the Academy and of its traditions. Early graduation has materiallyinterfered with our plans, causing us to discontinue our efforts some six weeks earlier than usual. - The following pages are the results of our labors, and we now respectfully-su,bmit them to the criticism of our readers. , ' P 3 . .,4vi,i'1V'-,-.-.V - L-, , V ...,,,.,.k.,g,.:.::.1,..f,, X, , V.

LEE I 5 liiiSt,O1'iCS of West A Point, wanted is a vivid picture that shall show what it is, not only what it has done, We all know, more or less well, what VVest Point is 1'L0'ZU,' what is wanted is to realize how it came to its present state. An institution has an evolution like that of an individual-from youth to complete manhood. We cannot understand a man until we know the steps through which he has grown to power. It is for this reason that no picture of West Point can be adequate unless it is projected on the background of a . S 3. 3 U.S.MQA--1370 history. Like every other living thing, its present is rooted in its past. 'Une can rind a succinct account of the Academy in the Cadet Register of each year, and the two quarto volumes- "The Centennial of the U. S. M. A., 1802-1902 U-contain its official history for the first hundred years of its existence. There are formal histories of the Academy by Park, Boyn- ton, Farley, Schaff, and others, accounts of cadet experi- ence are to be found in the memoirs of its graduates, novels and stories relating to VVest Point have been written by King, Malone, Roe, and many others, a biographical reg- ister of each and every graduate has been published 'by 1833. It is no more than just to say that the policy of Cullum. The Association of Graduates annually provides Thayer was steadily carried out, and improved upon, by every member with Bulletins and Reports that cover our General Totten, Chief of Engineers and Inspector of the current history.

It- will not poffraiis of Wasl and Knox will be on the walls of the Colonel Thayer.- we know it dates tendency of Colone who commanded 'l ' . , . and the class graded. The annual and final class standing of cach cadet was determined by his marks alone. His conduct was recorded by means of demerit marks. A graded series of punishments was devised, before they were imposed the offender had an opportunity to submit an explanation in writing. Boards of Visitors reported annually on the whole activity of the school. The corps of cadets was divided into companies and organized as a battalion of infantry, with ofncers appointed from the cadets. The summer was spent in camp. A commandant of cadets was detailed, with tact- ical officers under his command. An officer in charge had the immediate care of each day's military duties, and he was assisted by cadet OICflC61'S of the day and guard. The U. S. M. A. regulations of ISIS were written on a single sheet of paper Qnovv in the libraryj. Under Thayer they took a form very much like those of 1907. Our School.-Every cadet will recognize, as he reads these phrases one by one, that the whole framework of our school is here described, piece by piece. Each distinctive feature is portrayed. The whole of our corporate effort is set forth. Tye recognize in Thayer the true Father of the Military Academyfa scientific soldier, a scholar, an organ- izer, an administrator-austere, intelligent, and Wise. He represents its whole tradition. His statue stands on our parade ground. A portrait in full uniform, which he always wore, is in the mess hall. Every day he had the cadet officer of the day to dine with him. I can imagine that the young gentleman would willingly have escaped the ordeal, but this ceremony, like all others, had its uses. The great Superin- tendent's wise and steady hand controlled every movement of the complex machine he had invented. He prescribed the standards of military excellence and guided the Aca- demic Board. He was a scholar in classics as well as in science. The men he drew about him, devoted and faithful, seconded his efforts because they respected his ideals and accomplishments. Crozet, Bartlett, Mahan, Church, and their colleagues represent a great epoch. For sixteen years -until 1833-he directed our school. Wlhen he left it, it had taken shape. Our History.-Since that time there has been a gradual increase in accomplishment, corresponding to the gradual increase of scholarship throughout our land-there has been improvement. There have also been periods of change, the pendulum swinging a little to either side of the normal he established. The changes that were not improvements wore out in time, and were corrected and forgotten. There have also been periods of stress when the very theory of the insti- tution seemed to be in danger, but they have been passed in safety. A calm survey of the seventy-four years that separate Thayer's time from ours shows that his hand is still pointing true to our goal, that his ideals still govern his beloved school. Under Thayer 570 cadets were graduated, and most of them entered the army, into which they carried the professional competence, dignity and skill that they had 'Zfi,fQ1?TZfCZO57?4ff 2,-Wi? 751 f A N9M1Le.m3PivHs1,:,sxif i 2 F' acquired at lrVest Point. This is "the Old Army" to which men look back with pride. C'Quntry's Wars.-The Mexican War was fought men in command of squadrons, battalions and Well it was fought let General Scott, the say: "I give it as my fixed opinion ggracluatecl cadets, the war betvveen the Mexico might, and -probably would, have years, with, in its first half, more defeats to our share, whereas, in less than two a great country and a peace, with- battle or skirmish." VV hat the gradu- Wfar would take a volume to relate. VVar and still more the pacification brilliant chapters in the Armyis Military Academy is a school of a results of its training have been so that the community at large has come school itself and to approve, Without its methods If the results are on the methods by which they are at- this is the logic of the public, which iresults. Exactly what its methods are persons in civil life understand, even education. There are many graduates in, fact, pvvho have never thought out our Academic' briefly school W1 Wxth Ins Jewell so- that it has rcom fbr 'every talent, no matter how excep- tional, or even bizarre.

I ffl it Our Methods.-The methods of the Military Academy are 5 totally different from those- of the college, because its ypnoln-,fl lem is entirely unlike. Individuality is as important i1i:,fi?tl1e5f.,f'li-Q4 army as in civil life, but it is more 'important still that 1a11n15Qffl officers-each and every one of them-shall have' simple and practical virtues.

We claim that so much as this is done for an overwhelming proportion of our graduatedi . cadets. In all of them certain habits are fixed once and for e 1., . r . ll ii "PRESENT ARMS ! all. Character is nothing but the sum of moral habitudes. Here we create and assure the ofiicial, and to a great degree, the personal character of our alumni. They are not all alike at graduation, but each and every one resembles a prototype, and possesses certain official virtues upon which the country and his comrades can count. It is a matter of just pride that we are able to do so much as this for all our pupils. For the very best much more is done. Examples.-Let us see how the minor virtue of prompt- ness, for example, is taught at the Academy, and made an element of character. During the cadet's course of four years he has Qin my time he had, at least,j about eighteen thousand opportunities to be "late" at roll-call and forma- tion. Every single fault of the sort is noted and a demerit mark is assigned to the fault. If he is charged with about one hundred demerits during any six months he is dis- charged. For the single fault of tardiness he might, con- ceivably, accumulate over two thousand demerits in that period. Virtues such as precision, obedience, efficiency, are created and fostered in the same manner. At the end of four years the cadet has had thousands of single instances of the enforced practice of the selected virtues chieliy in- sisted on by our curriculum. He becomes perfect in many points of official conduct, proficient and serviceable in all. livery failure has been immediately noticed and punished. Official Character.-The habits learned here are not shaken off in later life. It is a safe wager that, in certain essential respects, each officer resembles his fellows. Hon- esty and official honor are taught by example and by a com- plex series of compulsions. lt is a fundamental principle of the institution, accepted without reserve by all its members, that one must always speak the exact truth. "The following statement- is correct" is always supposed to be followed by the words, "On my honor as a cadet and a,gentleman," and no one, cadet or officer, thinks of questioning it. In very rare cases it has happened that unworthy members of the institution have betrayed the confidence of their fellows: in all such cases they have been at once eliminated either by a dismissal by their oflicers, or by a resignation forced by their comrades. This is a place where truth is spoken, where a comrade's word and honesty can be depended upon. The statistics of disbursements by army officers for a hundred years show a bright record of integrity and faithfulness not equaled by any similar organization anywhere, at any time. Few persons have considered how absolutely the forma- tion of character is in the hands of the governors of this school. The cadet sees only what we show to him, hears only what we choose, does what we prescribe. The respon- sibility is immense. It has been faithfully and intelligently organized and administered. The quality of our under- graduates and of our graduates is superb, we believe they will stand any stress, they have never yet failed in any test to which they have been subjected. After reciting some of the important works done by grad- uates, Professor Davies says zf "All these results are due to flaogic of Mathematics, p. 384.

A.gTh'e Academy is a technical school for habit of steady, persistent effort in an allotted tasks is an war. Lowell characterized a university as "a place where admirable preparation for the life of the graduated officer. nothing useful is taught." The Academy is a place where I4 every moment must bc devoted to acquiring practical pro- ficiency in the arts of war, and where mental and moral power must be gained through 1lSC'f'llf knowledge-knowl- edge that can be used at three o'clock in the morning, and on the battleheld. It is not desired to turn out specialists in mathematics or physics. The graduated officer will nearly always be called upon to act rather as an inspector than as an originator. And this is said in full recognition of the many important inventions and discoveries due to army officers of exceptional talent. Idealism.-Wfe constantly hear that idealism is inculcated in the college. The unspoken inference often is that the scientinc school, and Cl foriiori a school like VVest Point, does not make idealists. The conclusion is incorrect. I make bold to say that the graduates of NVest Point are-without knowing it-the most convinced idealists in the country. Their ideal is Duty well performed, Honor kept bright, their C01mi1'y kept safe. I never knew one of them called by Duty who did not, promptly and without talking about it, proceed to carry out'his orders intelligently, efficiently and at once, without a thought of possible discomfort or danger to himself. If this is not idealism I do not know what is. This high quality is inculcated by our methods. Our History.-The Academy has been furiously attacked at times. It has been proposed to establish other academies C1819 and laterl, and it was resolved by the Legislatures cf Tennessee, Ohio, Connecticut, New York' and Maine C1833-1842j that the U. S. M. A. ought to be abolished. I und that the source of a great part of this embittered feeling was due to the rigid exactness with which army officers ex- pended government appropriations for internal improve- ments, the national road, etc., and quite probably to a want of tact in carrying out their orders. Since ,the Mexican War, and especially since the Civil Vtfar, the usefulness and effi- ciency of the Academy have been generally recognized 'throughout the country. Une of the standard criticisms of early days charged the Academy with being Han aristocratic institution." The charge seems absurd nowadays, when cadets are appointed from all over the country-so many cadets pew' square mile, as it were. A Hazing.-I-Iazing has given the Academy much trouble at times. The practice has gone through all sorts of changes, so that the very word signified very different things at dif- ferent times. I can trace only one general principle respect- ing hazing, and that- is that when the corps of cadets has decided, in their wisdom, that, fourth classmen do not get enough attention from the authorities, they have ever been ready to make up the supposed deficit. If anyone will con- sult the library scrap-book of newspaper cuttings called "Hazing in the Colleges of the U. S," he will conclude that the hazing at Vlfest Point has usually been a very mild and lady-like affair in comparison with that customary in civilian schools. i - M Early Discipline.-Something shouldibe said of the disci- :.-wisieial V W ff vii.: .Q -V-4-. gifiegaff fs' If 1 Vfluggju 1 .Q .V.g..QEvafF?e- b -- .--.x . . ,::i:,.- V 2 'JV . , .. . . --ff. :'.'-X:-12'-1 'vrtgsgsyqz-Q':1rS:5ir12-H5412 :ff-::H.911':f.a' - Q, - - ,. . x . ,-A, .' . ,, .h ,---:' 4.2--,.,h ., T .- f-y-1-w .V J:' -.4..:w:sf4':.1-rf:ca-::'1:e1'-eZ3g9-fY-vw' i1fpY'.Nw-5 :MPH-'G-NS' Pif5:"2V2sb:':.Q.-'gg-:mf,:2:.e:.-:'.'-.-ny, .391 3.-xr-:,' .

From the window of the upper room the Pro- fessor bandied epithets with the angry cadet below. The matter came to the ears of the Secretary of Wfar, who wrote several letters to the cadet, insisting on an apology to the Professor. The cadet refused to apologize, and the Secre- tary again writes, reiterating his demandand regretting the tone of the cadet's letters, and concludes that if the cadet insists. on his position, the Secretary declines to carry the correspondence further! It is only fair to say that while the abilities of the Professor were undoubted, his character was less than respectable, as was soon discovered. About 1814 there were two married cadets in the Acad- emy, and "a cadet with only one arm was admitted., There were drills before breakfast and after 4 P. M., and football' was regularly played, lt has been the fashion to say that discipline at West Point came in with Thayer's administration CI8I7D. It is most certainly true that the Academy, as we know it now, is based on the principles and practice of Colonel Thayer. But the 'preceding administration of Captain Alden Partridge C1814-18175 was in many respects excellent. Many of those that followed have been models of military administration. What the cadet learns from the Tactical Department of his time is apt to be the largest part of his military capital. ln September, 1817, Cadet Pinckney, of South Carolina, was notified by the Superintendent, in writing, to ,return at once to 'West Point. His father replied to Colonel Thayer that as the equinox was approaching, the return by sea was hazardous, and as the back-country was sickly, the return by land was dangerous, and requested that the young man be allowed to delay his return to duty till the middle of Octo- ber, which, in fact, was allowed. In November, 1818, the Commaudant, Captain john Bliss, of the Sixth Infantry, had trouble with the Corps. A com- mittee of five cadets preferred charges against him of throw- ing stones, at cadets, dragging them out of ranks by the col- lar, swearing at them, etc. There was another side to this matter, and the five cadets Qone of whom was a Delaware Indian named D. Moniacj were dismissed the service and ordered to leave the Post at once. They delayed their de- parture, and the Superintendent inquired why 'they did not go, to which they replied that "it was rainingf, However, they finally left and went to Newburgh, where they printed a pamphlet setting forth their grievances. The Secretary of War soon reinstated these young gentlemen, but the Super- ihtendent kept them in arrest until the next November, when they all resigned, thus closing the incident-except that in Y .-, Fiff-iii:-1:.'i'f?V" 1 -.

Since that day only the slightest alterations have been made in it, while other organizations have been subject to all kinds of change. Here is another example: ln 1808, Captain Alexander Thompson, once a Revolutionary officer, then military store- keeper at XfVest Point, died, leaving a widow and three small daughters penniless. Thewife of the Superintendent ob- tained permission from the Secretary of VVar for Mrs. Thompson to receive the fuel and rations of twelve cadets, and to board them in return. Gut of the savings she kept her family. In course of time Mrs. Thompson died, and the privilege was continued to her daughters, successively, until the death of the last one in 1875-SlXty-SQVCI1 years of care and consideration forthe family of a worthy officer Who shall say that the Army is not and Scores of instances of the sort families of officers and of Point, and the recital able chapter in our The Alumni.-It write'of the ing of its long line graduates.

' 25 ' DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING -- OME time during the years 1795 to l7QS, while the regi- gg. ment of Artillerists and Engineers was stationed at West Point, Colonel Rochefontaine and Captain Riverdi, . -. '1g formerly of the French Army, constructed a small model ' -3---1 front of a fortification. Upon the establishment of the Military Academy, in 1802, instruction in military engineering began at once, and the ele- ments of fortihcation were taught by the use of this model. Until 1818 this instruction was carried on by means of lectures illustrated by the model above mentioned and by field exercises in practical engineering. The lectures were delivered by the Super- intendent until ISO8, by the teacher of French, Francois O. Masson, from ISGS to 1813, and after that by the professor of engineering. The text-book then in use was a small pamphlet of fifty pages, translated from the French by Colonel Jonathan Williains, Corps of Engineers, the first Superintendent. The Department of Engineering was established by an act of Con- gress dated April 29, 1812. Under this act, Captain Alden Partridge, Corps of Engineers, was appointed professor of engineering. Captain Partridge graduated from the Academy October 30, 1806. He served as assistant professor of mathematics at the Academy from 1806 to 1811, and as principal assistant of the same department from 1812 until he was appointed professor of engineering. Much of the time while he was professor of engineering he was also Su- perintendent of the Academy, and therefore was little occupied with the work of his department. Professor Claude Crozet, who had been assistant professor of en- gineering since October, 1816, succeeded Professor Partridge. Professor Crozet made radical changes in his department, and at the same time Major Sylvanus Thayer, the new Superintendent, instituted many reforms in the other departments. Professor Crozet was, on May 1, 1823, succeeded by Professor David B. Douglass. Professor Douglass was appointed to the Corps of Engineers in 1813, and had served at the Academy as assistant professor of nat- ural and experimental philosophy for five years, and as professor of mathematics for three years before his appointment as professor of engineering, which office he held for eight years. Professor Douglass resigned March 1, 1831, and was succeeded by Professor Dennis H. Mahan in January, 1832. Professor Mahan graduated from the Academy in 1824, and served then as assistant professor of mathematics for one year after his graduation, and as acting professor of engineering from 1830 to 1832. Between 1825 and 1830 he studied in Europe, and after his appointment as professor he prepared the hrst satisfactory set of text-books for this department. Professor Mahan died September 16, 1871, and was succeeded by Professor Julius B. VVheeler, after a successful administration of thirty-nine years. Professor 'Wheeler graduated from the Academy in the class of 1855, he was hrst assigned to the Cavalry and afterwards trans- ferred to the Engineers. He had served two terms of two years each as assistant professor of mathematics before his appointment as professor of engineering. Professor Wheeler made no extensive changes in the course of instruction, and retired in September, 1884, being succeeded by Professor James Mercur. Professor Mercur graduated in the class of 1866, and was assigned to the Corps of Engineers. Before his appointment as professor of engineering he had served two terms at the Academy as as- sistant professor of natural and experimental philosophy. Pro- fessor Mercur died in April, 1896, and was succeeded by Captain G. I. Fiebeger, Corps of Engineers. Professor Fiebeger had served for Eve years as assistant professor of engineering before his appointment as professor, and also served in the department of philosophy immediately after his graduation. In the early history of the Academy, instruction in practical mili- tary engineering seems to have been consolidated with the department of engineering under the title of "Actual Operations on the Groundf' However, in August, I842, Captain A. J. Swift, Corps of Engineers, was assigned to duty as instructor in practical military engineering. About one year after this department was inaugurated, the head of the department became a member of the Academic Board, and since then the department has been distinct and separate in itself. From its inauguration in 1842 to the present time, IQOS, there have been twenty-five heads of the Department of Practical Military Engineer- ing, all of whom have been officers of the Corps of Engineers. Colonel Michie, afterwards professor of philosophy, and Colonel Goethals, at present in charge of the Panama Canal, were each at the head of As most comes into element of department. the department.

This, of course, is very inconvenient-to the A detachment of engineers is stationed at West Point, Whose chief duty, except guard duty, is to assist the cadets in this practical work. During the summer encampment, the instruction is given to the hrst class and surveying to the third class. In the fall the first and second classes receive the instruction, and in the spring the First class alone. Q- . DEPARTMENT OF LAW AND HISTORY 28 ,Z """ ' 'S PROFESSOR . COLONEL EDGAR S.

A separate department for instruction in law was created by the Act of june 6, 1874, and the instruction in law which had previously constituted a part of the course of study in the Department of Geography, History and Ethics was taken from that Department. The Chaplain remained Professor of Geography, History and Ethics, and an ofhcer of the Judge Advocate General's Department was detailed as Professor of Law. These two departments were re- united by the Act of February 18, 1896, and from then to the pres- ent time, instruction in law and history has been under the direction of an ofhcer of the Judge Advocate General's Department detailed as Professor of Law and History, the Chaplain having no duties of instruction and being detailed for a term of years instead of being permanent as theretofore. Not less than twelve different subjects have at different times formed a part of the course of instruction in these Departments. Whenever a new subject was added to the curriculum, it was added to the duties of the Chaplain. The course was constantly changing. International law'is the only subject which has con- tinued without interruption from the creation of the Department of Geography, History and Ethics to the present time. Constitu- tional, Military and Elementary Law are the only subjects which have continued without interruption from the time they were intro- duced as a part of the course. History and Geography, while form- ing a part of the course when the Department was founded, have been twice discontinued. Instruction in geography at the present time is upon historical geography only, and consists in locating on outline maps the principal places of historical interest. Ethics con- tinued uninterruptedly from 1818 until 1896, when it was discon- tinued. English studies formed a part of the course at different periods up to june 18, 1887, at which time English was added to the Department of French, which then became the Department of the French Language and English Studies. Logic was introduced and was a part of the course for a short period, and was then discontinued. From the founding of the Academy in 1802 until the year 1818, there appears to have been no instruction given in the subjects of history, geography, ethics, English language or law. May 22, 1816, regulations were adopted by the Academic Board, approved july 1, 1816, which provided for a course in the English language, and in geography, history and ethics, the course in ethics including law. Some instruction in ethics may have been given during the one or two years prior to the Act of April 14, 1818, but that Act marks the institution of the Department of History, Geography and Ethics. The Act provided that there should be "one Chaplain sta- tioned at the Military Academy at West Point, who shall be Pro- fessor of Geography, History and Ethics, with the pay and emolu- ments allowed the Professor of Mathematics." Rev Adam Empie was Chaplain when this Act was passed, but resigned April 30th. Rev. Thomas Picton was the first Chaplain and Professor of Geog- raphy, History and Ethics appointed under that Act, being ap- pointed July 23, 1818, and the Department may be said to date from his appointment. From this time until the present date, the evolution of the De- partment has been gradual. The study of Law began in 1842. Military Law was first studied in 1858, followed the ensuing year by the Rules and Articles of War. In 1867 instruction in the sub- jects of Geography, History, and Ethics was discontinuedg and the course of study pursued under the direction of the Chaplain 'in- cluded only the subjects International, Constitutional, and Mili- tary Law. In 1874 the Secretary of War was authorized to assign one of the Judge Advocates of the Army to be Professor of Law. Major Asa Bird Gardiner was detailed as such Professor, and since that time the heads ofthe Depart- ' ment of Law have been assigned by the Secretary of War. Colo- nel Edgar S. Dudley is the present incumbent. In 1905 Dudley's Mili- tary Law and the Procedure of Courts-Martial was adopted as the text-book to replace Davis' Military Law. In History dif- ferent text-books have been used at various times, each one being replaced until 1899-1900, when Duruyis General History was adopted. A new feature was added in IQO3 by the introduction of a course of lectures on "The History of Civilization," by Dr. James H. Canneld, librarian of the University' of Columbia. These lectures were found so' valuable that they have been continued up to the present time. - The new text-book, with addi- tional matter relating to the development of civilization, forms of government and of the laws, introduced at proper places, through inserted leaves, by General Davis, with additions made since his administration, brought the subject of History in closer con- nection with the study of Law, and formed a valuable adjunct to it, and, with the lectures, tends not only to give technical instruc- LAW SECTION ROOM tion, but a broader view, and one, in the line of a liberal education on the subjects, appropriate to the Hnal year's work of the graduate at the Military Academy. The value of this instruction, especially in the Law course, has never been more thoroughly demonstrated than in the events during and following the Spanish-Ameri- can War, when officers of the army were called upon not only to administer Military laws and the laws of Military Government, but to organize and conduct civil af- fairs under eonditions without precedent in our history, and to make and promulgate laws for the government of people until civil government should be established by Congress, That all this was done successfully in Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippines was due to the legal qualifications and capacity for understanding and conducting those affairs by officers of the army, derived from a knowledge of the fundamental principles ac- quired by graduates in the course of study at the Military Academy. Under the new conditions of army service officers will be more than ever called upon to' perform duties requiring, for their proper performance, and for their own protection in such performance, a thorough knowledge of the principles upon which our civil laws are based, as well as a clear understanding of those of Military, Constitutional and International Law.

The ofhcer provided with this knowledge must be more efficient than the officer whose knowledge of his weapons is limited to what may be obtained from the drill books and from experience on the drill ground. The edu- cated ofhcer will not only be able to make more effective use of his weapons at all times, but when in the stress of war, circumstances arise that have not been and could not have been contemplated in the drill book he will through . his superior knowledge and effi- '. ciency be able to continue the use of his weapons long after 5 4 A. , , they would have been given up l T. T by the uninstructed officer as disabled. - The same considerations apply to the various devices appurte- nant to the use of firearms of all kinds, such as primers, fuses, sights, range finders and the like. A thorough knowledge of the principles involved both in their construction and use enables an ofhcer to produce a serviceable makeshift when for any reason the material provided will not do the work required. In other words, a complete knowledge of the tools of his profession gives ORDNANCE LABORATORY resourcefulness to an officer, and resourcefulness is to any officer a most valuable asset. A most striking illustration of the value of resourcefulness in war is afforded by the incident of the construction of the gun "Long Cecil" in Kimberly, South Africa, during the seige of that town by the Boers. The Boers had placed their artillery about the town in commanding positions which were beyond the range of the few small pieces of artillery possessed by the English, and yet so close as to render certain the destruction of the town if the Boers were not driven back. Mr. George Labram, an American engineer in the employ of the DeBeers Mining Company, conceived the idea of building a gun larger than any gun possessed by the Boers and with a greater range. NVithout previous knowledge or : v-ll experience in the construction of guns, Mr. Labram, with the aid of a text-book on Ordnance that a volunteer officer happened to pos- sess, designed a built-up gun and its carriage, and with the material that was at hand in the shops of the company he built in the very short period of twenty-four days a 4.I-l1'lCl1 breech-loading rifled gun and a carriage on which to mount it. He provided also a supply of projectiles for the piece, and devised the fuses for use in them and primers for firing the . piece. With this gun the defend- ers compelled the Boers to move 5. 13 - E xx WRIT IN ORDNANCE their besieging artillery farther from the town, and they were enabled to continue its defense until nnally relieved by the English forces under the gallant General French. . V ' A model: of this gun will be found in the Ordnance Museum of the Military Academy and a very interesting account of its con- struction in the book entitled "Institution of Mechanical Engineers, I90o," which is in the library. Beginning with its establishment in 1817, the course in Ordnance was given by the Department of Tactics as part of the course in Artillery Drill Regulations. Among the Artillery instructors who taught Ordnance were Robert Anderson, the hero of Sumter, and E. D. Keyes, George H. Thomas, and Fitz-John Porter, all three of whom were Major-Generals in the Civil War. In 1857 the two courses were separated, and the Department of Ordnance and Gun- nery was created, with an officer of the Ordnance Department at its head. The first instructor, Capt. James G. Benton, Ordnance Department, wrote a text-book for the course and established the general plan of instruction. The text-book has been changed twice, but the gen- eral idea of the course has been the same, though, of course, keeping pace with the improvements in the science of Gunnery. In all there have been fourteen instructors of Ordnance and Gunnery. By an act of the last Congress, the title of the head of the department was changed to Professor, with the rank of Lieu- tenant-Colonel. Major O. M. Lissak, Ordnance Department, the last instructor, became the nrst Professor of Ordnance and Gunnery, a position which he still holds. A ,,.,--..,,, . ,y .fl -ff- .

' Professor Mansheld was a descendant of one of the earliest settlers of Connecticut, was a graduate of Yale, and was one of the two teachers under whom the Military Academy began its career in 1802, His commission as Captain of Engineers had been given expressly for the purpose of obtaining his services as a teacher in the Academy, on account of the high reputation he had establisheduas a scientist-and instructor. It is an interesting fact that all cadets of his name ,who have been admitted to the Academy were members of the professor's family. His son, E. D. Mansfield, who became a noted lawyer, educator and author, graduated in 1819. His grandson Cson of E. DQ graduated in 1871, and is now Colonel of the Second Infantry. Hisinephew, General I. K. F. Mansfield, a graduate of 1822, received three brevets for gallantry in the Mexican VVar, and was killed at the battle of Antietam. Samuel M. Mansfield, son of General Mansfield, gradu- ated in 1862, and is now on the retired list, having been retired as a Brigadier-General after more than forty years' service in the Corps of Engineers. Professor Mansfield served at the head of the department for sixteen years, and was succeeded by Professor Edward H. Courtenay. Professor Courtenay stands out as one of the most attractive and intellectual personalities of the many who have made the reputation of our Alma Mater. He graduated at the head of his class KISZID, at the age of seventeen and a half years, having mastered the four years' course in three years. After graduation he was retained at the Academy for three years as instructor, serving first in the de- partment of philosophy, and then in engineering. He then spent two years as assistant in the construction of Fort Adams, and two years in the office of the Chief of Engineers at Washington. At the tha age of twenty-tive he was advanced, from Second Lieutenant of En- gineers, to succeed Professor Mansheld as the head of the depart- ment of philosophy. In the six years during which he served in this capacity he greatly endeared himself to both his colleagues and his pupils. The necessity for a higher salary to support a growing family led to his acceptance of the chair of mathematics in the University of Pennsylvania, which he occupied for two years, then another professional advancement induced him to take up the practi- cal work of engineering. In his later years he returned to his orig- inal profession, and spent the last eleven years of his life as pro- fessor of mathematics in the University of Virginia, where his memory is still held in great esteem. From 1834 until 1871 the department was administered by Pro' fessor NV. 1-I. C. Bartlett. who graduated from the Academy in 1826. More than a generation has passed since the end of Professor Bart- lett's services at the Academy, but he is still remembered by many of her alumni for his great ability, and for his kindly and careful instruction. It is acknowledged by all that in his text-books and methods of instruction he impressed a character on the department which has endured to this day: and although there has been a later reaction against too close a restriction of his methods to purely analytical generalities, it is hoped that the solid foundation upon which he built may not be discarded in the modern tendency toward a more liberal and immediately practical purpose. After his retirement from the Academy, Professor Bartlett served for eighteen years as actuary of the Mutual Life of New York. Professor Bartlett was succeeded by Professor Peter S. Michie, who served at the head of the department for thirty years, until his lamented death in active service, in the spring of 1901. Professor Michie graduated in 1863. He served during the Civil VVar, in which he earned three brevets, including that of Brigadier- General. His service at the Academy is too recent to need extended notice here. In the conduct of his department, and in maintaining the interests of the institution in general, he held to the high stand- ard set by his predecessors, and yielded to none in his devotion to the welfare of his Alma Mater. May his beneficent influence con- tinue to inspire similar devotion in her later children. Professor Gordon had the advantage of eight years' service as assistant to Professor Michie, and to this service he attributes his advancement to the position he now holds as head of the depart- ment. He graduated in the class of 1877, and served in the artillery and in the ordnance department until his appointment as professor of philosophy in IQOI-fl'lC last year of the hrst century of the Academy. , Professor Courtenay is the only one of the five professors of philosophy who has not had a son appointed to the Academy. Each of the others has contributed to the alumni, as follows: Edward D. Manslield, 1819, 'William C. Bartlett, 1862, Dennis M. Michie, 1892, Philip Gordon, 1908. The following are among the noted ofhcers who have served as assistants in the department: ' s David B. Douglass, graduate of Yale, afterward professor of mathematics and professor of engineering, Charles Davis, class of 1815, afterward professor of mathematics, Robert P. Parrott, 1824, inventor of the Parrott guns and projectiles, Gen. Joseph Roberts, 1835, served continuously from 1837, to 1849, Gen. Rosecrans, 18421 Gen. Williain B. Franklin, Father George Deshon, and Gen. I. J. Reynolds, 18433 Gen. john M. Schotield, 1853, Edgar W. Bass, 1858, afterward professor of mathematics, S. E. Tillman, 1869, now pro- fessor of chemistry, Dr. -E. S. Holden, 1870, now librarian, Gen. Arthur Murray, 1874, now Chief-.of Artillery. I z DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY 40 . .. .

'4l DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY Instruction in chemistry was introduced at the Mili- tary Academy in October, 1820. The immediate cause and manner of this instruction are shown by the following letter and order: MILITARY ACADEMY, West Point, April 20, 1820. DEAR SIR:-I have just received your letter of the 20th instant, and hasten to say in reply that I am highly pleased with your proposition to appoint Dr. Cutbush a Post Surgeon and to station him at Vfest Point, with in- structions to deliver each year a course of lectures on chemistry. The Cadets of the first and second classes fabout rooj would be permitted to attend, and it is prob- able that few would decline the opportunity. I am of opin- ion that 85 from each Cadet for a single course would be a reasonable compensation. The sum of 32500, if necessary, may be spared from the appropriation of the present year, to be applied to the pur- chase of chemical apparatus. I am, sir, with great respect and esteem, your obedient and humble servant, . . S. THAYER, DR. -IOSEPH LOYELL, Brevet MG1'O7', S1fLpev'fL14,tende1fLt Sm'ge0n-Genevfal U. S. Army. M ilrltary A cademy. It thus appears that the detail of Dr. Cutbush and consequent beginning of instruction in the department was immediately due to the suggestion of the Surgeon-General, Dr. joseph Lovell. Dr. Cutbush was appointed Post Sur- geon, May 16, 1820, and his name appears on the Academic Register of june, 1820, as acting Professor of Chemistry, Inspection in the department was begun October 9, 1820, as shown by the following order: U. S. NIILITARY AC.ADEh'IY, West Point, N. Y., Oct. 8, 1820. fPost Ordersj Dr. Cutbush, having completed his arrangements for a course of lectures in chemistry and mineralogy, will deliver the introductory lecture to-morrow at 12 o'cloclc. The course will be attended by the Cadets of the first and second classes, which will be formed into one squad and marched to the lecture room at I2 o'clock every week day by the adjutant of the battalion, or, in his absence, by the squad marcher of the first section of the nrst class. Seats will be assigned to the Cadets in such manner as to enable the whole to see the experiments to the best ad- vantage, after which they are not to change seats. All ofhcers of the Post are permitted to attend the lectures. To enable Cadet Triste, acting assistant teacher of French, to attend the chemical lectures with his class, the fourth French section of the fourth class is to recite for the future in the evening, and will assemble for that purpose at the signal to return to quarters after supper. By order: GEO. BLANEY, 1v,'f67Lf67ZU1'lf and Pos! .ldjrmzzzf These lectures to both classes at the same hour con- tinued for one year, and then the regulations of the Acad- emy prescribed separate hours. Until 1879 both the nrst and second classes received instruction in this department, the first class, of course, being more advanced, but since that year the instruction has been confined to the second class. This change is the most important and distinct which has been made in the department since 1830. The schedule for the study of chemistry in the second assumed definite shape very soon after introduction, in 1820, and with only a few temporary interruptions has continued almost unchanged to the present time. - As before noticed, Dr. James Cutbush, Assistant Sur- geon, U. S. Army, was the first head of the department and acting, Professor of Chemistry at the Academy, He served from the creation of the department until his death De- cember IO, 1823, Assistant Surgeon james G. Percival succeeded Dr. Cutbush, and was acting Professor of Chem- istry, etc., from March 4 to July 6, 1824. Assistant Sur- geon John Torrey was the acting professor from August 25, 1824, to- june 15, 1827. Dr. Torrey afterwards filled many distinguished positions, among which may be mentioned that of professor of chemistry and botany in the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City, professor of chemistry of Princeton College, New jersey, professor of chemistry, mineralogy, and botany at the University of the City of New York. 1 Lieutenant W. F, Hopkins, Fourth Artillery, was acting Professor of Chemistry, etc., from June 15, 1827, to August 31, 1835. Among the positions subsequently nlled by Professor Hopkins may be mentioned that of professor of chemistry and natural philosophy, lfVilliam and Mary College, 1849-1850, professor-of natural and experimental philosophy, United States Naval Academy, 1850-1859. Lieutenant VV. Bailey, First Artillery, was the acting Professor of Chemistry, etc., from August 31, 1835, to july 8, 1838. At this latter date he was appointed Professor of Chemistry, Mineralogy, and Geology, and occupied the position until his death, February 26, 1857. Captain L. Kendrick, Second Artillery, was appointed Professor of Chemistry, etc., March 3, 1857, and served until December 13, 1880. Professor Kendrick, prior to his appointment as professor, had served from September, 1835, to january, 1847, as assistant in the department to Professor Bailey. Lieutenant S. E. Tillman, Corps of Engineers, was appointed to the professorship to succeed Professor Kendrick, january 1, 1881. At the date of his appointment Lieutenant Tillman had served for four and a half years as assistant in the department to Professor Kendrick, and one year as assistant in the Department of Philosophy. - .- - DEPARTMENT OF DRAWING 44 ,A . . . . ,qw-" " V . .. .E .. .-.J f. .1,..- ' gfEj1.qz"' -wi?

Y HISTORICAL SKETCH OF THE DRAWING DEPARTMENT HE earliest reference to the Drawing Department found in the archives of the Academy IS the appointment ot a professor of drawing by the President in 1803 I :QR U the chair of Professor of Drawing, and upon his retirement, in 1876, the President appointed Charles Vlfilliam Larned, First Lieu- tenant, Seventh Cavalry, as his successor. During the early existence of the Academy the course in draw- - ' ' ' . n yi s l 1826 is the initial mention of drawing as an organic H I7 ' ' ' 'f . -J department of the 11lS'E1U.l101l ing was of an elementary character, and was confined to freehand Professor Francois Desire Masson received the first appointment and conducted instruction in drawing in addition to his work as "teacher of the French lan- guage." He was succeeded in 1808 by Christian E. Zoeller, a Swiss of limited attainments, who in turn, in 1819, was followed by Thomas Gimbrede, a Frenchman of eccentric character, who held the position for thirteen years. Upon his death, in 1832, the dis- tinguished artist, Charles Albert Leslie, was induced to accept the appointment, but the ascetic en- vironment of a military school was distasteful to one of his ar- tistic temperament, and his stay was brief, being succeeded in the same year of his appointment by Robert Weir, an American artist, who had already achieved dis- tinction and who was destined to take an honorable place in the front rank of the American ar- tists of his day. For forty-two years Professor Weir occupied A X drawing and to the copying of topographic maps. Some of the early efforts of cadets are still to be found in the portfolios of the department, and in the map-male ing of the period show consider- able skill. Among others on hle in the department is a map by Cadet Alexander D. Bache, who in 1830 was appointedalieutenant in the Topographical Engineers on account of his ability in topo- graphical drawing. He afterwards resigned from the service, and eventually became the Superin- tendent of' the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. During the long period under Professor Weir, the character of the work, as shown by the many water-color sketches now on the walls of the Academy, was artistic rather than technical, and all ca- .. ' . - dets were obliged to aint ic- ? ff. , ,. , .. . , P D 5 J' .' ' ' 5 tures, man of which still adorn . A . ' 'f 1 dffqdhjv . the walls of army homes and are .

There is, 46 ij . however, a sunficient similarity between the products of this period as to suggest the possibility that repeated Washings left but little of the caclet's work in evidence inthe final drawing. Under Professor NVeir the eccentric genius Wliistler received his hrst instruction in drawing, but before his class graduated 'he was compelled to sever his connection with the Academy. In after life he ha-s been known to have said, "Had silicon been a gas, my career would have ended as a soldier." With the appointment of Professor Larned and the general de- velopment of military science, the artistic character of the work in the department has been forced to the background by the techni- cal demands of to-day. Keeping constantly in touch with the de- velopment iri military science, he has keenly appreciated thefneces- sity of change, and has gradually replaced the artistic work of the early period with technical engineering, topographical, gun construction, and building construction drawings. The prints from the office of the Chief of Engineers and the Chief of Ordnance are but a few days old before they appear in the curriculum of the drawing academy. i E vm i 24.

However, when the Academy was in its infancy, we End that the gentlemen Cadets were only 'w. required to solve a few simple problems in the elements "-4-PEI of geometry and algebra. Those showing greatest apti- tude were given elementary instruction in the use of surveying instruments. ln 1812 a professorship was provided for, Captain Alden Part- ridge being selected to hll that office. The course grew to include arithmetic, logarithms, trigonometry, land surveying, and conics. Under the regime of Thayer, who became superintendent in 1817, the course again took a great stride, and began then to assume some- thing of its present proportions. In addition to the above-named subjects, in 1839, spherical trig- onometry, descriptive geometry, shades, shadows and perspective, analytical geometry, and calculus were added. From this date on the develop- ment of the department has been gradual, many bright minds hav- ing contributed to ,its success. Among the distinguished heads, the names of Davies, Church, and Bass stand pre-eminent. Their text-books were used throughout the country and in many schools of Europe. Church was professor for forty-one years. The course at present lasts but two years, gliding then into Phil- osophy, Astronomy, Engineering, and the science of Ordnance and Gunnery. In these subjects the mathematical principles previously studied are applied. This department is, and has forever been, the stumbling block for many. Diving deep into the pages of history, we find Sherman, with a wet towel bound around his fevered temples, at one o'clock one cold winter night, studying descriptive geometry. He was reported for this, and promptly walked his little guard tour. Again we find where poor VVhistler walked a few extra tours for "Trifling in the Mathematical Academy." And it is " here that we iind Grant solving the first of his great problems. l-le conclusively proved, like the rest of us, that "the sum of all the angles about a point, on one side of a straight line, was equal to two right angles." Furthermore, he kept his toes turned out at an angle of 60 degrees, and his chin well drawn in, while he did it. Mathematics is a pretty sad- sounding sort of a word to the lazy layman. Among the ordi- nary cadets it is solemnly spoken, it is awful, it is -. I cannot describe it. 1 -k wk It is night, half after two, dark and cold. The wind and snow are whirling across the bare area, everything else is silent, sleeping, save the inuliied, shivering sentinel. A door of the ninth division opens, and a cadet, with his bath-towel, comes out. A cold shower, for he must get awake for study. A few days later: The snow lays piled, in places around the area, many feet deep. Now and then a cadet runs quickly from one division to another. A cold, drizzling and penetrating rain has set in. A wagon is quickly driven up to a solitary trunk. The Ser- geant chucks it in hurriedly. The bath-towel cadet comes from the ninth division in a civilian suit. He shakes hands with the old Sergeant and starts for the East Sally-Port. Found! 1 DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LANGUAGES 52 PROFESSOR COLONEL EDWARD E. WOOD, Cadet, U. S. M.

DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LANGUAGES HE first provision for the study of languages at the Mili- tary Academy was by act of Congress in I803, providing for the appointment of one teacher of French. Under the provisions of this act Francois D. Masson was ap- pointed in the summer of that year. In 1810 he was succeeded by his brother, Florimond Masson, who served The Massons were natives of France. Their father emigrated to St. Domingo, where he became a rich planter and President of the Provincial Parliament. The brothers Francois and Florimond came to the United States in consequence of the destruction of the com- merce of the island by the French Revolution and the slave insur- rection of 1791. Claudius Berard, who was also a native Frenchman, succeeded Florimond Masson in 1815. He served at the head of the depart- ment until 1848, the last two years as professor-the title having been changed by act of Congress in 1846. Five years after Berard's emigration to the United States he was appointed Professor of Latin and Greek in Dickinson College, where he served during the three years immediately preceding his appoint- ment to the Military Academy. Professor Berard was succeeded by Hyacinth R. Agnel, who was born in New York, of French parentage. He was assistant to Pro- fessor Berard from 1840 until 1848, and served twenty-three years after his appointment as professor, making thirty-one years of continuous service at the Academy. Th: first graduate of the Academy appointed as head of the De- partment of French was George L. Andrews, who graduated at the head of his class in 1851. He served during the Civil War, reaching the rank of Brigadier-General of Volunteers and the brevet of Major-General. He was not in the military service when appointed Professor of French in 1871, but was serving as United States Marshal for the district of Massachusetts. Professor Andrews served eleven years as Professor of French and ten years as Professor of Modern Languages, the departments of French and Spanish being consolidated in 1882. He was retired for age in 1892, and was succeeded by Professor Edward E. Wood, the present incumbent, who is a graduate of the class of 1870. Before his appointment as a cadet, Professor Wood served three years in the Pennsylvania Cavalry during the Civil War, in the Army of the Potomac. He became First Sergeant and First Lieuten- ant, and was held five months as a prisoner before he reached the age of nineteen. He is now in his thirtieth year of service at the Academy since graduating, having been detailed three times as instructor before his appointment as professor. The Department of Spanish was established in 1854, and instruc- tion began in 1856 under the Professor of French. In the summer of 1857 Patrice de Ianon was appointed Professor of Spanish, and on his retirement in 1882 the departments of French and Spanish were merged in the present Department of Modern Languages. From the early days of the Academy until 1878 the study of English was under the direction of the chaplain, who had the title of professor, the exact designation of his ofhce varying from time to time, according to the constitution of the course of studies under his charge. English was left out of the curriculum in 1867,- and direction of the Professor of French, and since '1h'1t time it has con restored in 1877.

It was organization and discipline that enabled Alexander, Han- nibal, and Napoleon to accomplish their stupendous military results. The same is true of our own military leaders-'Washington, VVin- held Scott, Grant, and Sherman. The consciousness of a righteous cause, self-sacrihce, and personal bravery we have seen without limit, numbers and resources gr there have been, many times, in abundance, but always there must be military organization and mili- tary discipline before these can be used to their best advantage. lt is to the Department of Tac- tics that our education along these lines is to a large part entrusted. From the moment of his entrance into the Academy as a plebe making his first report to his ca- det superiors to the instant he re- ceives his diploma as a graduate, a cadet of the United 'States Mili- tary Academy is a unit of the bat- talion of cadets, the organization and control of which is directly under the supervision of the of- licers of that department. Dis- cipline is a part of his daily life, l and under the rules prescribed for and by the Department of Tac- tics he is grounded in its principles from every point of vantage. As a fourth classman, he is subordinate-at first thought it might seem to all-but even then, as the marcher of a section to the class room or drill, he Finds himself in a position where there are men under him who, in a limited way, are his to command and who must obey. As he becomes an upper classman, he is still subordinate, but his opportunities to command become greater in number and more diversilied. As a cadet officer, or acting in some position of re- sponsibility in a maneuver problem, he learns the necessity of a loyal discipline in his subordinates, and the importance of carrying out orders for which he himself l sometimes does not understand the reasons. As a member of a squad and company in the battalion organi- zation, and as a unit in the troop of Cavalry and battery of Field Artillery in his practical work in the field, he learns in a practical way of the fundamentals upon which the army is organized, a theoretical and more extended in- struction in which is given him near the end of his course and in another department. The Department of Tactics is, by regulation, charged with the theoretical instruction of cadets in the drill regulations of the diFfer- ent arms of the service-Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery. This theo- retical work is further carried into the instruction along special lines of strictly military subjects, such as the service of Security and Information, including patroling, advance and rear guard, 'and outpost duty: hippologyg and rules of military administration, taken up in the form of lectures and oral instruction. Instruction in military police and discipline is given by the Com- mandant of Cadets and his as- sistants who are officers of this ' ' W department. For this purpose and for the purpose of internal administration, cadets are Aor- ganized into a battalion of six companies. The Commandant of Cadets is the commanding officer of the battalion. His assistants, exclusive of the instructors in gymnastics, number ten officers, representing the three arms of the service. The battalion has its own cadet officers and non-commis- sioned' officers of the battalion staff and companies, who perform their duties under the supervision of the officers of the tactical de- partment. The course of instruction in Military :Gymnastics which has, during the time of the present Master of the Sword, Captain H. I. Koehler, come to occupy a most Cavalry instruction in the riding hall, on the plain, and in the field, practical work with the Field and Coast Artillery, drills without number in all arms of the serviceg and finally the annral practice march, where, for a week, the cadet learns how to hike, how to live on the field ration, how to build his camp, and innumerable things that he may some day later put into practice when his men fire cartridges that are not blanks, and the enemy are not his friends. From the nature of the Acad- emy, it must be said that there has been a Department of Tactics since the institution began, and it is true that cadets have received practical instruction in tactics since that time. It was not, how- ever, organized as it now exists until 1858. Upon the accession to the Superintendency of Major Syl- vanus Thayer, in 1817, the func- tions of this department as well as of all others became more clearly dclined, and it may be said that its history then began. Upon Major Thayer's recommendation an officer of the army was de- tailed as instructor of Infantry Tactics and Soldierly Discipline, who was made responsible for the interior police andadministration of the cadet body. It can be seen important place in the curriculum, ' also belongs to the Department of Tactics. It is under the immediate supervision of the Master of the Sword, who is himself a commissioned officer, and who has one commissioned and three civilian assistants. And last but not least in importance among the duties of this department is the practical instruction in the work which must fall at some time to each and every officer of the line-Target Practiceg RIDING HALL 4 - that this officer's duties corre- sponded to those now charged to the Commandant of Cadets. The tirst incumbent of this position was Second Lieutenant G. VV. Gardiner, Artillery Corps, and he may be said to have been the hrst Commandant of Cadets. The Corps at this time, which consisted of about 200 men, was organized into a battalion of two companies,-with its own cadet officers. In 1819 it was organized into a battalion of four companies for the encamp- A ment only, and in 1827 this organization was made permanent. The four-company battalion remained until 1900, when it was changed to six companies, and from present indications, our successors, the Class of 1909, will be the hrst in the history of the institution to furnish the officers for a permanent organization of two four- company battalions. From the fact that this department exercises a control and supervision over the administration and operations of the cadet body as a military organization, it follows that a history of the events in the life of our Academy, made of importance through sentimental or material reasons, is often a history of the department. Many times has the gray battalion, under the command of its chief, journeyed to different parts of our land to participate in ceremonies of inauguration, to attend and lend attraction to our industrial expositions, to do honor to our valiant living and to commemorate our valiant dead. In July, 1821, the Corps of Cadets, under the command of Major William J. Worth Cafterward the distinguished generalj, made a trip to Boston, Providence, New London, New Haven, and return. Going by steamer to Albany, they marched from there to Boston, where they spent two weeks. From Boston they marched to Providence, where they remained several days, thence to New London, having marched in all about 310 miles. From New London they went by steamer to New Haven, thence to New Yorkg and again by steamer to West Point, arriving there September 25th. In 1863, during the draft riots in New York City, the authorities became apprehensive that an attempt was to be made to destroy the iron foundry at Cold Spring, which was at that time turning out many of the big guns for the Ordnance Department. Rumors were also rife that West Point was to be included in the raid. Cadets were furnished with ball cartridges, arms were put into the hands of some of the civilian employees of the post, and prepara- tions were made for resistance in case the attempt was made. It is said that it is only since that time that armed sentries have walked post continuously night and day at West Point, The Corps has gone to Washington several times to assist at inaugural ceremonies. There have been several trips to New York, City of Philadelphia, the attendance of the whole Corps at the Army and Navy football game having been an annual occurrence since 1900. It has also been in attendance, generally from a week to ten days, at the expositions at Chicago, Buffalo, St. Louis and Jamestown, the latter trip still being fresh in our own memories. On June 3d last, when the U. S. Army transport "Sumner" tied up alongside the south dock and our baggage. was put aboard, there occurred a new experience in the history of the institution. The next morning, the Corps of Cadets marched aboard the troopship, and, at the appointed hour, the ship swung out into the stream for our trip to the Jamestown Exposition and for the first voyage of the Corps of Cadets on the high seas. Changes there must be made in our Alma Mater. As there is progress along all lines of social, political, and industrial activity, so must the profession of arms keep pace with the times, and it has done so. But in the objects and aims of the institution there is no necessity for changes, for they were well thought out by its illustrious founders, as the results have well demonstrated. It is to this department, even more than to any other, that has fallen the task of keeping alive the traditions of the Academy, and instilling into the untrained youth the principles upon which a successful and useful military career must be basedg and it is through their work in this department that our men of the upper classes endeavor to promote these ends. From plebedom to gradua- tion, the daily life of the cadet is by this department regulated, and by it, whether he will or not, its impress is made upon him. Charged to it is the responsibility of holding fast to that which is good, and changing and progressing beyond that which cannot last, moulding into the military character of those who are here our motto-the motto of the Academy-DUTY, HONOR, COUNTRY. vi' ' .. - .,1. et . 43 . , b I - .

Two of these were executedas a part of his course of instruction in the Depart- '-"' ment of Drawing, and of these, one hangs on the staircase wall of the Drawing Academy, and the other was presented to the Officers Mess and is there preserved in its reading room. F ive other drawings have recently come into our pos- session through the generosity of Captain Wm. Baird, U. S. A. Cretj, whose father, Brigadier-General Absalom Baird, U. S. A., deceased, ai very gallant and distinguished grad? uate of this institution, was stationed at the Military Academy as Assistant Professor of Mathematics from 1853 to 1859. As Whistler was found deficient in chemistry in the semi-annual examination of 1853, General Baird's service as instructor coincided for a short period with that of Cadet Whistler's as a student. Captain Baird in his letter to me forwarding these drawings says: "These pen-and-ink sketches are taken from an ,old album or scrap book that belonged to my mother. These pictures I have always understood were made. by Whistler when he was a cadet, and while my father was stationed as an instructor at W'est Point. This old album I got out recently from a box of books that had been packed away and was almost falling to pieces, so I thought I would send these on to you to be given to VV est Point if so desired." There is no doubt whatever about the authenticity of these drawings, one of which is signed with his name as then written-J. A. Whistler-without the initial M., which he subsequently added. , To West Pointers much interest attaches to every- thing associated with Whistler's career while a cadet, not only from the fact of his subsequent fame as one of the greatest artists of our century- and a man of extreme originality of character and work, but also for the reason that he never abated his love for this institution, his admi- ration for its ideals, its methods and its men, and his pride in having been for three years a member of the United States Corps of Cadets. Whistler's criterion of perfect accomplishment and high standard in conduct was that of West Point, and up to the day of his death he constantly adverted to this Academy with pleasure and interest, and expressed his belief that it was the one institution in the world where conduct and ideals were in agreement and conformed to the highest standard. Whistler was a cosmopolite, a man of the world, of pene- trating observation and keen wit, who had seen men and manners in countries of the most advanced civilization, and this wide intercourse had left not only unimpaired but in- creased his exalted opinion of West Point and its personnel. These last drawings are wholly original sketches done while Whistler's genius was still' in embryo and his tech- nique crude and undevelopedg' nevertheless they show a surprising cleverness in handling, great freedom and variety of touch, and a forecast of that extraordinary com- mand of line which placed Vlfhistler later as the foremost etcher of this or any. other age, worthy to rank with its ,master-Rembrandt. They are extremely interesting to the artist, as are all memorabilia of a master to his fellow- craftsmen, and as a note of character history of the man Whistler they are no less so to the public at large.

Even after an engineering writ he will defend the department. He decided against the cloughboys some two years ago, when he walked the area for long months, and is unalterably opposed to the Coast Artillery. Once he loved the Com dearly, and until his career was cut short-some two years ago-Earl James was a monstrous big quill. Speckoid, tenthoid, dis- fiend, he is. Spoonoicl he may not be, but inspect for yourself, at West Point and Vassar respectively, the records of military and millinery academies. And know also that recently our hero returned at 2 A. M. Sunday from a six-hour leave which ended "not later than tattoo on Saturday." Notwithstanding that the Law Dept. declares him anything else but a lawyer, this modest, sober, gentle youth is a firm believer in "The Law," and looks upon cons awarded by the Supe as punishment direct from Heaven. 9 B AVERY, RAY L.-. . ........... . .............

As a student, however, "Dick's" claim to a rather dubious position, in the first section rests on a peculiar grain of bull-dog. "Oh, I can't see it, but how can I think of anything else?" His four years of work at the Academy have been marked by persistent and tireless application to his studies and to his branch of athletics, We remember him as a plebe, a Yearling Corp, a Sergeantland a Lieutenant, always with the same stick-to business ways. Commendation for work during a furlough month spent at Mount Gretna maneuver camp is but another recognition of soldierly qualities.

But what his native town lacks in distilleries it makes up in girls judging from the number that he has dragged to the hops in the past three years. He is a "gym', fiend and a ridoid of considerable ability. He can give the elusive tenth just as stern a chase as most of us.

Here is a shrewd, calculating little man, full of nervous energy. Knows phil- osophy and talks it, but seldom practices what he preaches, he is of the type that likes to smoke a good cigar and enjoy it in silence. "Spec" derives his name from two sources-his stature and his ability to talk his instructor to sleep on almost any subject. The latter, combined with a little bluff, a cold, gray, piercing eye, and a pretty good jaw has given him a star for four years. With him sentiment is but a small matter. Personality is but a potential for fruitful purposes. He looks at art as a mathematician, at poetry as a stoic.

Riding is one of his many accomplish ments, but in this he is originalg he believes in having an air-cushion between him self and the saddle-at least from appearances, he has that idea. He received a Sergeancy in his second class year from some unknown source, but forgot all about the skin book-poor boy, it was a shame to take his chevrons away, he loved them an "Aide" to the Governor of his State.

However, "Bobby'S" ready wit grasped the situation and he promptly farmed out his job to willing and ambitious yearlings and lived all camp like a feudal baron, while they did his work so well that September found him still among those present. His career was nearly prematurely terminated in the football season, however, and from the time of his famous order, "Give 'Spike' Geiger three admissions to 'West Point for the Yale game," till the whistle blew on Franklin Field, his entire time was taken up between beating Captain Oil-learn out of grand-stand tickets and dodging the vicious assaults of disappointed seatsgrafters.

In order to have some outflow for his energies he took up the most expensive luxury that a cadet can have, and as a result many of the pictures in this book are due to his efforts. He loves to pose as a bright mind, and just before every class formation avows that he hasn't "looked at the lesson."

FF dn w euo T has long been the custom for the man upon whom falls the honor- able task of Writing the first class history to indulge in reminis- V, f e .EQ ' i ' """ cences of a quasi-humorous na- yg "1-i if ture. To me it seems that such ii 'N "" .V,. Y 15, 'A,iAAV , ,m,: reminiscences are not those which r p ' Q f ' the young graduate loves to recall. V us' H g g ' i ':,V , i i To him VVest Point recalls four strenuous years, well spent and unregretted. To hope that, in the future his Alma Mater , L C will consider that her name and course has not been wasted on him, should be his constant thought, his fondest desire. The oft-repeated statement that West Point was shaken to its foundations at his class entrance is, of course. a joke. But to say that 'West Point has shaken him to his foundations is the whole meaning of his diploma. Four years ago we gathered from all parts of the country, from all ranks of life, to do-We knew not what. Our expe- rience during the Hrst year was that of all classes. We obeyed much, we commanded very little, We saw the reasons for nothing, and, in truth, we cared little if there were any. Life was one long anticipation, and the semi-occasional holi- days served but to accentuate our misery by giving us time to think how badly off we really were. During this year friendships were formed to a certain extent, but no per- manent estimate of our classmates' character was possible save to a very acute few. Some things We did Which, how- ever, seem to belie this remark. In plebe September we elected Enoch Barton Garey, Athletic Representative, a position which he has filled with distinction for four years, and in that Spring We chose Nathan Crary Shiverick to head our list of Hop Managers. The energy, unselfishness, and tact which he brought to this office have served to smooth over many social roughnesses, and to make our hops the enjoyable events they have been. Our plebe course of studies, dry to all, and incomprehen- sible to most, went with the life we led. English was not rhetoric, it was a catechism, and would have been a joke but for the tragic ending of the course, in which two of our number werenfound. VVe did not understand the usefulness of our course in mathematics, which perhaps the later years may have made us realize. To all it was a bore, to many a nightmare, and some forty awoke from their nightmare were formed and the unity ofthe class became an accom- plished fact-that unity which, we hope, has been charac- teristic of our class. And it is not amiss in this connection to acknowledge the kindness which we received at the hands of 1906. Their friendly attitude served to make us forget ii 31' during the year with a discharge and a ticket home. The long term, however, came to a close at last, and a hundred and sixteen entered yearling camp. In this camp it cannot be said that we really learned any- thing, other than to know each other. There jfriendships for a few months, at least, that we were 'fonly yearlingsf' Yearling camp, like all things good or bad, came to an end, and we returned to barracks. The year which we had to face has the reputation of being the hardest one in a hard four. In the opinion' of 'most of us the reputation is deserved. In this year we made the acquaintance of the -., V . Drawing Academy. There we spent two hours every after- noon for two months, and this alone was enough to make yearling year both memorable and miserable. We also pur- sued the course- in descriptive geometry. The previous year, fourteen men had been found, and the men who had no aptitude for the course were scared. The work caused by this scare, or possibly other reasons, pulled our loss down to but one. The one, however, we could ill afford to lose, and our sympathy for him darkened an otherwise enjoyable Christmas. FIRST CLASS IN CAMP THE SPASM BAND Shortly after Christmas a real tragedy befell our class. Clinton Edward Lamme, a member of 1908, while visiting Minneapolis on sick leave, perished in a hotel fire. The loss of one of our most beloved classmates, cut off in the middle of his best years, was a shock to the class and to the Corps, which no one of us will ever forget. To his mother, whose acquaintance many of us have made, we do now extend our most heartfelt sympathy. In the latter part of yearliug year conditions improved. The course was easy, the academic Qnot the tacticalj author- ities generous. But what kept us up to the state we were in, was Furlough. This is, in many graduates' opinion, the most enjoyable part of a man's whole life. Certainly its anticipation is sufficient to cheer anyone over the most annoy- ing incidents. Can we forget the spring evenings at the Bat- tery, when we sang to the tune of a popular air words which, to us, were more popular still? We cheered everything from the Moon to the Highlander, and abused in verse everyone from the Superintendent to the Chaplain. A At last graduation day came and 1908 left for its furl lough. A distinguished graduate has said that no part of a BACK FROM FURLOUGH ON THE AREA cadet's life has so -much effect on him as furlough. He goes a boy g he returns a man. Every one of us can bear witness to the truthof this statement. ' 1 No day has as many good points as the day we leave for furlough, none so thoroughly combines the worst minutes of every day of the year-as the twenty-eighth of August. On that day we returned to lfVest Point-to what the Pro- fessor of Drawing calls the last lap Qthough by no means the home stretchj. There can be no graduateg to whom ,books are other than a bore, who can fail to look back with satisfactionon the second class course. Then became evident the value of two years' thorough mathematical training. There we learned to appreciate the physical'insigniticance and the intellectual prowess of our raceg and there we learned the sciences of the infinite and the infinitesimal. During this year it was our honor and our pleasure to be associated with a professor who treated the class as he treats everyone-with unfailing consideration. He spoke encouragingly of our successes and did not dwell unneces- sarily on our failures, numerous as they were. The class takes pride-and justly, we believe-in thinking that it met courtesy with courtesy and repaid patience with diligence. A well-remembered break in the monotony of military routine was the trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Thisiopened our eyes to a world hitherto unknown. To us painting and sculpture had seemed dimly associated with Paris and long hair, and more clearly connected with the difficulties and dullnesses of the Drawing Academy. In one day all this was changed and we were made to realize that anyone, by a little study, can fit himself to enjoy the master- pieces which have delighted the ages. lt is to be regretted that the necessity of obtaining a thorough acquaintance with the Palaeozoic Age and the "trajectory in vacuo" prevented further visits to the great museum. , The anticipation which carried us through the first two years was largely lacking in the third year, and we did not count the number of days to June as we had previously done. CONSTITUTION ISLAND June, nevertheless, came, and shortly afterwards we took part in a most "delightful" interlude, officially described as a "trip to the Jamestown Tercentennial Exposition." Of this trip, especially the aqueous portion, the less said the better. i I Our first class camp was Camp P. S. Michie. Here we both worked and played. The play all of us enjoyed, and we hope that We acquitted ourselves with credit in our social responsibilities. The work was of a new kind. 'During the encanipment, the average man, ungraced by chevrons, who, EXYGBL l. IN THE SPRING TIME ' PISTOL PRACTICE nevertheless, must become the average officer and set the pace for the Whole-army, had his hrst chance to wield au- thority. Our estimate of the. ability of many of our class- mates changed after seeing them go through one drill. Usu- ally it became a moreifavorable one. There is not ainan who has not more self-confidence after the experience given by the summerls drills, especially bythe maneuvers of the practice march. D Qnce again August 28th has made its appearance, and we are now in barracks for the last year. This year's course is easy, and manypof us spend ourevenings in the Club. How- A-7 ' -Eu: .

Nor do the departments pursue those methods which made the second class section room so different from that of yearling year. There are, however, some things about this year which make it stand out as the most pleasant of all-notably the Club, the near-absence of guard duty, the total absence of drawing, and pre-eminently, the proximity of graduation. And this graduation is even nearer than We thought, for one day in October rumors of an early ending of our course began to fill the air. The skeptical laughed, and said it was one of Joe's rumors. The more credulous began to Worry about cits. But this time, strange to relate, the credulous were more wise than the skeptical, for in late November we were ofncially informed that February I4tl'1 had been selected as tl1e glorious day. So, in a trice, 107 of the days to June had been lopped off, and we found the Academic Board doing its utmost to comfort us for the loss by cram- BACK TO BARRACKS ming six months' work into the three that remained before never rise above an honorable mediocrity.

HE plebe lives in fear and trem- bling of the presentg the yearling dwells entirely in the golden days of the futureg the second class man begins to let his thoughts turn to the vanished past. Per- haps he gets down occasionally the scrap-book that he has kept during the years of his West Point life and thoughtfully turns over the well-filled pages. Snap- shots, newspaper clippings, pro- grams-each trinket has a sug- gestion for him, and possibly the best way to appreciate his point of view is to glance over with him a few of its pages. 1? Dk Pk The first thing which our second classman finds in his scrap-book is the order from the VVar Department informing him that he had been selected for appointment as a cadet of the United States Military Academy He hasn't forgotten the feelings with which he received it, the high hopes which it stirred within him, the fair field of promise which it seemed to open to him. And he knows it must have meant far more to many a classmate of his who had looked for- ward all his life to obtaining the coveted appointment. Strange to say, there is nothing in the scrap-book to indi- cate that the new cadet enjoyed his "beast barracks." He might have kept the nine hundred and ninety-ninth rag that he ran through his gun, or the speck of dust that the "Tac" found on his mantelpiece as a souvenir-but he didn't. As a matter of fact, he was too busv readjusting his ideas of what iNest Point was to have any time to fool with a scrap- book. He was "Learning the trade of a chambermaid, When he wanted to be a hero." , . ra:- ACADEMIC BUILDING But, after all, it wasn't entirely a period of mourning, and the second classman wishes he could have secured that per- mit in which Cadet Doniat humbly requested permission to contract indebtedness to the amount of two cents, in order to reclaim a letter held for postage! gt Q: :ia :.: , Number Three-half-past two O'clock-all's well! Can't you hear the wail go Boating around camp? Wfill you ever forget those long night hours alone with the trees and the stars and the shadowy outlines of Fort Clinton parapet? Do you remember how every snapping twig sounded like the report of an eight-inch gun, how each innocent shadow transformed itself into an approaching army, while upon your shoulders rested the grave responsibility of saving the sleeping camp? Cf all the impressions and emotions of "plebe campf, none stands out more vividly than the remem- brance of that first guard-tour. 21 wk S S1 There is notime to stop for many an interesting souvenir -this ticket to the Army and Navy game at Princeton, or the menu card for that first Christmas dinner inthe Mess Hall Cwhat a dismal Yuletidelj. But here's a postal card from one of the class for whom the subtle deductions of the late C. Smith proved too bewildering, and who was found deficient in mathematics. He was a fellow who had tried his best, too, had been ever so faithful and pei-severing, and who had set hisheart on being' some day an officer.

The keynote of third class spring was anticipation. It was that which inspired the little pamphlet of "furlough songs" that adorns one page of the scrap-book, not poetic classics by any means, but spontaneous and heartfelt outbursts, at I DEAD-BEATING - . f ' -- ww , . e. 1 IN THE WINTER TIME least. That it was which impelled us down to the Battery every evening, can't you hear "Ike" and "Pa" Reed and the rest of the 'itom-catsu come in on the resounding chorus: NFCR-MVC will be in old New York, old New York, old New York," etc., etc. Anticipation it was which brought us to our feet with a cheer whenever a train rumbled noisily by just across the river. Finally, it was anticipation that drove our instructors almost to distraction. if Plf P71 There is a green leather-covered menu card in the scrap- book which marks an epoch in the history of the class. We had had formations for class and drill, formations to draw books at the Cadet Store, formations for lecture in Cullum Hall, but we had never had a formation like our furlough banquet. That night of good-fellowship did much to bind us together as a class, and it saw the beginning of the'reali4 zation of our anticipations. It was a summer of glorious realization, spent in the midst of old scenes and of old friends, whom this long two years' absence had made even dearer. There are several pages in the scrap-book devoted to furlough, and they are among the happiest memories that its owner has. "So sad, so sweet, the days that are no more?" SEACOAST BATTERY ' ' ' V NEVER AGAIN I The furlough hop-card bears a much reviled date, but one which long ago lost any sting it may once have had for us. VVe came back to find our studies and drills more interesting, our privileges less' restricted, our classmates closer to us, and we could not but feel a growing sense of appreciation and devotion-a realization that Vifest Point meant so much to us that was WORTH VVIHLE. 'We were grateful for the greater degree of consideration and freedom granted us, especially, perhaps, in the Depart- ment of Chemistry. Though there are many things con- nected with that interesting course, which, as the Head of the Department put it, "neither you, nor I, nor Mr. Wilkes can hope to remember," few of us will forget a certain definition for which "Lil" Lyman was responsible: "An isobar, sir, is a-a water-spout or other aqueous meteor!" One or two football score-cards have found their way . 5 ' pluckily and faithfully and persistently, have at last "made good."

Free at last frorn the tor- ments of those regions of deepest woe, we began to stand out as a real unit in the life of our rock-bound Hudson home in Plebe September. If you are, through some relentless de- cree of Fate, relegated to the realms of pain and sorrow, the only thing to do is to make the best of And the Class of IQIO did make the best of it, as anyone will tell you. We had our triumphs and disappointments on the foot- ball iield, and our successes and failures in the Academy Building. It is still beyond our powers to decide whether it is better to come to grief on the gridiron, go to the hos- pital and live in luxury for a time, and then return to our former painful serfdomg or come to grief in the intricacies of Math, which means go home to mother. Sad for us to relate, a good many of our number followed the latter course. Finally, by dint of much perseverance and application, about fourscore and ten of us succeeded in cluding the snares and pitfalls of the Mathematical Demon, and became Yearlings. Yearlings! Vlfhat more thrilling word ever set the youthful heart of budding manhood a-leaping with the delight of life! Ah! never shall we forget that fourteenth day of june, that draught of nectar which magically de- stroyed the bitter taste of the dregs we had drunk, as Plebes, from the cup of woe! , And the new makes! The area was full of them with their diminutive chevrons pinned on their forearms. But these embryo quills are more terrible in their authority than the worst of adjutants and iirst captains. And then we went to camp. What hours of happiness and bliss serene rippled over our irzsoucifavzt hearts as we hopped and spooned, dragged to concerts, or took strolls on Flirtationl Even the burden of five hours of drill a day could not keep down our effervescent spirits. Wfhen the newest thing in Beasts set upon us one day early in July, think you we were dismayed? Not so. We tamed those Beasts most efhcaciously, and demonstrated to them the inherent superiority of the Yearling over the Plebe. ,Tis true that a few of our most daring spirits were slightly ABoARD T1-iEasU1v1NER - J -T ' i I 533 MCDONOUGI-l'S CUT scathed in the fray, but on the whole we tamed the animals with very successful completeness. But what of the Spoonoid all this time? Justglance from your comfortable siesta in your tent and see who that is bearing away towards the Visitors' Seats in the heat of the sizzling clay.fOhl that is Robb, the one the girls all love.

The better to make ready for this festival, all drills Then we say au revoir to the First Class, and real Year- are suspended except Field and Coast Artillery, P. M. E., ling Camp begins. It is then that the Yearling is truly in riding, dancing, and a few others. At last all is ready, his element. There are Yearling captains, and a Y'earling l54 adjutant, a11d Yearlmg file-closers whose loud and menacing voices may be heard all over the Plain crawling and bracing the luckless Plebes. But all our glory is soon over, the First Class is back, and everything is ready for the practice march. Wie set out on a bright Monday morning, and spend six weary days' on the road. The hard marches of the morning are atoned for by the pleasantness of the afternoon and evening. Those of us who had not'walked enough to be thoroughly tired during the morning, may visit the neighboring towns where balls are perhaps being given, the advertisements for which announce the presence of the "TN est Pointsf' The latter, however, cannot bring themselves down to Fishkill balls after Cullum hops. g Finally' we returned to good old Camp Michie, well soaked from a pouring rain. A few days more of camp, and then the famous 28th of August and the return of the eX-fur- lough men, who are ever ready to impress upon us hopeful Yearlings the shortness and futility of Furlough. But we listened not to the prattle of a collection of dis- gruntled Second Class men. We have ,to Work hard now not to be found, and the Math Department is ever re- sourceful in inventing new schemes for our downfall, but we know we shall triumph in the end and shall reach that dear Mecca of our dreams-Furlough!

They all clung to a type- written document in which Mr. So and So was informed that by reporting at Wfest Point, N. Y., on june 15, IQO7, and taking a couple of oaths he would be converted into a gray- coated, brass-buttoned cadet. After waiting a few moments in front of the Adjutant's office, and being checked off by a polite gentleman with a red stripe on his trousers, we were escorted by an orderly to the East Sallyport. There stood waiting for us a tall, blonde young man in a gray suit. "Ah!" said one candi- date, "doubtless one of the fellows who wants to be the iirst to welcome us, or maybe a Y. M. C. A. representative to give us advice' VVhen the aforesaid blonde had gotten through giving us advice about turning down our trousers, buttoning our coats. etc., our feeling had changed from hope to despair. The cadet who welcomed us turned us over to other equally impolite cadets, by whom we were led to the front of the guard house. There we learned to salute and to sound off fl beg your pardon, sir, repeat, sirj a few words in which we informed someone that we reported for duty. Having said this about sixteen times we were admitted to the inner room, where we said it again, and were given the number of our room in barracks. W e were then conducted to the awful presence of another blonde, who made such a beastly fuss about giving us a brown leather belt that some of us were on the point of telling him to keep his darned old belt if he couldn't be more pleasant about giving it up. From the blonde at the guard house we went to our rooms, draw a veil. I might remark, however, that the First Class from our rooms to the Cadet Store, where we received a man who corrected him for it almost smiled. This was the rnattressg from there to our rooms.

J f DANCING FORMATION On entering the Mess Hall, the Walls of which are covered with the pictures of generals Qat least, We should judge that the dining hall of a Military Academy Would be covered with the pictures of distinguished soldiersj, We were greeted by howls. Careful attention led us to the conclusion that We were being adjured to keep our eyes off the howlers. This We gladly did. But that nieal. That awful, horrible repast in which We gulped down food like cannibals, and then braced leaning back in our chairs, the latter not at all a pleasant task. TARGET PRACTICE But why go on? All days were as bad as the first, and great was our joy at reaching camp on July 6th, In camp we did not have to work as hard as in barracks, which was an advantage, and more people took an interest in us, which was a considerable disadvantage. Camp also gave us the Illumination, when for a 'few minutes we were able to forget we were plebes. On the practice march also We were infantry nien every day, marching great distances to a tight where every one of us was a skirniisher Who had to double time. A few days after our return from the practice march him off. But may the number of the elect be as great as we struck tents and returned to barracks. Since that day possible, and when 1908 graduates may we move a step our life has been one constant struggle to keep the Academic higher and become the YEARLING CLASS! wolf from the door.

SMITH, Captain Football Team HOMER M ' . GRONINGER, Captam Baseball 'T eam Fencing Team Q55 Q Q FP?m Putting a pin in the unwinding record of the football team of 1907 7 just after the Syracuse Q game, and blotting out a ' few minutes of the Cor- nell game, we have one of the most brilliant and successful seasons ever witnessed on the Army gridiron. Look at any newspaper printed in the United States dated De- cember Ist, 1907, and it tells with bright colors and brass tongues of the fa i l u r e-a failure of strong men. VVe play the Navy for sport, we play them to win 3 we play them to be judged for the whole season on the result. VVe play for results, and that is why, retrospectively speaking, the whole season was a failure-a greater failure in proportion to the greatness of the team. The team is our ship: the season, the construction, and the Navy game, the voyage. We go down with the ship. It is the best ship our hands can rear. But let us not forget the pin which we placed in the unrolling tape to shut off this last voyage of a mighty band. The season started very much as all others do here at W'est Point: that is, with about one-hfth of the men turning out. These seventy odd men were soon treated to a dose of the "Grinding Mills" and the squad was formed from the "chosen few" of about forty men. - From the 1906 team we lost Christy, Sultan and Hill. VVeeks, Erwin, Smith, Hanlon, Ayres, Beavers, Garey, Pul- len, Fowler, Greble, Mountford, Stearns and R. D. johnson remained. Contrary to expectations the team started in a rather crippled condition. Pullen was still lame from his injury received the year before g Fowler was a convalescent from typhoid, and Garey had a stiff ankle joint which made playing a continual nerve-tester, which that young man bravely stood. Beavers could not be used to carry the ball for the same reason as Garey, and was placed at end. The opening game was with Franklin-Marshall. West Point played more than two teams. There was only one apparent result of this game, and this was that West Point undoubtedly had a fast team, a score of 23 to 0 being run up in the hrst ten minutes of the game. Next came Trinity, the first real test of our defense. The offense was as yet purely experimental and undeveloped, even along its purposed plan. The defense surpassed all expectations and the offense did fairly well, scoring two touchdowns. With West Point's undoubted strong defense, its strong kicking, and its unknown offense, all the foot- ball world turned its eyes on the Army team and its foster-father, Yale. In the week that ensued after the Trinity game, glaring pictures and wonderful accounts came to VVest Point, through the medium of the daily press, of the irresistible line plunging backs from Eli, the evasive and shifty quarterbacks, the ends with arms of the octopus, while VVest Point was credited with having a good kicking department, a stone wall line, and bushels of grit. As the day grew near, every coach who had ever played on Yale was quoted in colored print in the Eastern papers, and the most YALEIS BALL. 169 conservative estimate was an 18 to O score by a member of the Yale 1904 team. There is a reason. And so it was that when the sun of Saturday, October 19, showed its head above the hills across the river, from old 'West Point every cadet awoke smiling when the hell-cats sounded off in the lower hall. Reaching over to his chair and taking his blouse, he deliberately thrust his face in the lower opening of the arm and with one accord smothered out a long Corps smile up the sleeve, betimes thinking about that 18 to o score and how mad a certain red-h aired fellow would get if such a score were to be even men- tioned in his pres- ence-this s a m e fellow being "Red" Erwin. The game start- ' ed by Coy kicking off toward t h e north goal to Ayres on the Army ten-yard line. He ran the ball back ten yards. Beavers kicked out of bounds at the Army's fifty-yard line. Now was Yale's' chance. 'Three times did they try the lighter Army line, and three times they were repulsed. Yale held for downs in the middle of the field. Let history take note. Then came a puntiug duel between the two fullbacks, Coy and Beavers, in which Coy had much the better of it. After ' A HUSKY PAIR each had kicked three times, it was Yale's ball in midfield. After two unsuccessful thrusts at the Army line, Coy was forced to kick. Beavers received the punt and ran it back ten yards. VV est Point kicked on first down, and here was the first real kick that Beavers got off, the ball sailing sixty- five yards in the air. Coy fumbled and Rodney Smith smothered it. Now it was the Army's chance with the ball on Yale's - twenty-five y a r d line. Weeks made four yards through Page, and then an onside kick was tried, which Yale covered. Yale punted from be- hind the goal to Smith, w h o r a n back fifteen yards. Beavers dropped back as though to punt, but with cool and deliberate de- cision made a for- ward pass of twenty yards to T. I. Johnson. Again the cadet team was in striking distance of that mighty goal. Smith made five yards through Yale's defense, then R. D. johnson slipped clear, but stumbled, making first down. The cadets in the cheering section went wild, but were quickly brought back to a lucid interval by the referee's penalizing the Army for off side. Again a short kick was tried, but Coy got the ball. Yale tried the line for no gain .'... 1:12121 ON THE DEFENSXVE-CORNELL GAME and kicked. Beavers returned the kick to jones, who tore off a beautiful run of forty yards. Again a punting duel was entered into, with honors even. Yale tried the forward pass, which failed, but the onside kick gained back fifteen yards. jones made a pretty run of fifteen yards around our left end, and Mountford's being injured in the tackle gave way to Garey. Yale could not gain and Bomar tried a place kick from the-thirty-yard line, but the ball went wild. Beavers kicked out from the twenty-hve-yard line, and a punting duel ended in a draw, Erwin distinguishing himself by his fierce and sure tackling. Wfith the ball in Yale's pos- session in midfield the hrst half was up. This was the first breathing spell that the spectators had enjoyed from the beginning whistle. Yale adherents put their hands in their pockets and said: "Waitj Yale is a second half team." Army adherents, having no pockets, rubbed their hands together and said: "Wait5 Yale has yet to make her second first downf' Both teams lined up without a change of players. Beav- ers kicked off to T. jones on Yalels ten-yard line and Erwin threw him on the spot. Coy punted and Beavers returned, Stearns making a beautiful tackle. Yale essayed a forward pass, and Burch, aided by a rabbit's foot and a horse- shoe, recovered the fumble. Wiley tried the line for a yard and a half. Both teams exchanged a punt. VVeeks made four yards and Beavers punted hfty yards, Coy catch- ing the ball, but being thrown without an inch gain by a clever tackle by Erwin. The jones brothers worked the forward pass for twenty, yards. Again it was tried, but Ayres, Smith, and Beavers were on the spot -and dumped the play, Smith getting the ball and running a few yards, when 32' . - gg - . ' ON THE. OFFENSlVEfCORNELL, GAME he in turn dropped the ball when tackled, Yale securing the ball. Yale was penalized for holding, and Coy punted to Beavers on West Point's forty-yard line. A forward pass, Beavers to Erwin, was successful, but not allowed, as being illegal g an erroneous decision, as was afterwards decided. Beavers got off a poor kick, and it was Yaleis ball on VVest Point's thirty-five yard line. A forward pass got eight yards, but on the next play Weeks tackled Bomar so hard that he dropped the ball, the Army securing it. V A forward pass of thirty yards was fumbled by T. I. Johnson, T. jones getting the ball. Yale was penalized for holding. Coy kicked to R. D. Iohnson,on the Army's twenty- Hve yard line, who ran the ball back fifteen yards and got almost clear of the field. The remainder of the game was fought out in West Point's territory, and what advantage West Point had in the punting duel was offset by the yards lost by incompleted forward passes, and the game ended with the ball on West Point's fifteen-yard line and Bomar behind his line of scrimmage preparing to try a field goal. , ' During the early part of the first half, Coy outpunted Beavers, but the latter improved as the game progressed, BEAVERS' DROP-KICKING and not only got off his kick well, but sent the ball further than his rival. It was a great surprise to the football world, but why should it be? Taking the last eight Yale-West Point games, the total scores have been 82-38 in favor of Yale. This was the third tie. In 1904 West Point beat Yale and Yale beat both Princeton and Harvard. This is by far a better show- ing than any team in the East. Why is it so surprising that the game was a tie? . A week later the 'same team .- . played high-school football against the University of Roch- ester, but won by a score of go-o. In 1906 Colgate held West Point to a o-o score, and it was desirous of piling up as large a score as possible, but the day was rainy, the held soggy. and a most uninteresting game was played, West Point win- ning by a small margin of 6-o. A great deal of interest- was displayed prior to the Cornell game. The Ithacans had been hailed as world-beaters, and came down with the idea of playing concentric rings around the Army. But unfortunately for the Big Red Team there were eleven football players at the " Key to the Hudson " who had other views on the subject, and it took a pleasant afternoon knocking this out of their heads. The game started by a fumble of a punt, a forward pass .3 N T, ,v r about twenty yards on each exchange, until when Cornell attempted to kick from the ten-yard line, Fowler blocked the kick and Philoon carried the ball over for a touchdown. Beavers kicked the goal. It looked good for the Army. Everything was Army after the first ten minutes of play. Fate decreed it otherwise, though, and a succession of y , l , RODNEY SMITH by Cornell and a score. But then the real football began. The Army would not be denied. A sixty-yard punt, a hard tackle, a weak return of the punt by Cornell, and the same repeated, brought the ball within striking distance for West Point, and Beavers sauntered back from his place in the tandem and, with the coolness of an iceberg, drop-kicked the ball as nearly in the center of the goal posts as the best engineer could with tested instruments. Again the punting duel was resumed, West' Point gaining fumbles and 'misplays placed Cornell in a position where by the execution of a forward pass the lead was again reversed. The remainder of the game was a series of bril- 4 l "RED" ERWIN liant and daring runs by McCallie and a grand display of desperate fighting by the Army team. The next week Tufts was easily measured by a score of 21-O, and with but one week until the Navy game, the first half of the Syracuse game over and the score 4-0 against the Army, VVest Point showed its true power-the spirit and fight which it ought to have had a week later, but which no team can display in its linal game if one department is so inefhcient as was our handling of kicks against the Navy. . Four-zero the score was against the Army at the end of the nrst half. Syracuse, thinking it a repetition of last year, came back into the game as though they had some huge joke on the Army. There was a joke-but the Army was the perpetrator. Beavers and Johnson were put in the game, and the former did his best kicking, averaging sixty-five yards. The joke started when NVeeks carried the kick-OH back past midneldg it developed on the next play when Beavers ran twenty yards as a result of a clever forward pass, and culminated when, after some terrinc line plunging, Smith carried the ball over for a touchdown. A forty-yard run on a fake interference gave Rodney Smith the second touchdown, and line plunges following long gains by Beav- ers and Hanlon, netted the next two. Twice Beavers kicked over the goal line from his own thirty-five-yard line, and he missed a drop kick by inches. Everybody was pleased. It was a brilliant game. If we could have ended the season then and there, one could encounter a smile in the vicinity of VVest Point at present, but a sportsman's fate is a hard one and both sides cannot win. ' A Sportsman true ls a man of blue, And he takes his sharp defeat, He tries once more, A win to score, And smiles if hc is beat. '- .K 'ff l.,fS?'l.gl '45 v, " .,f,..l.'14:x,.,N 1 - . f.

VVe were disappointed, perhaps, but discouraged -never. 'We must say the result was a surprise, but nevertheless our friends of the Navy scored a very well- earned victory. The stands at Franklin Field were crowded-probably 35,000 persons saw the game. Representatives of both branches of the Service, government dignitaries, State and municipal ofhcials, distinguished foreigners, were there-also the Corps of Cadets and Brigade of Midshipmen. The Corps marched on the field as usual, and were scarcely seated when the Midshipmen, with a staff as large as a com- pany of Coast Artillery, marched on the held. The frrst dig- nitary to arrive was a huge white dromedary arrayed in Army colors, which some enthusiasts alluded to as being a mule. He was followed by a small bear, while on the other side of the field appeared the time-honored goat. Uur team was first on the field and was greeted by a right- from-the-heart-long-corps-all-up-with-hats-off yell. The Navy team put in its appearance a few minutes later, and was warmly received by the Navy supporters. There was a few minutes' signal practice by both teams, and then Smith won the toss. He decided to defend the west goal, with a slight wind against him. The teams were soon lined up and Beavers drew back for the kick-off. A moment of breathless suspense, and then the ball went sailing over the goal line. Douglass punted from the twenty-five-yard line to Surles. After two line plunges by Surles and Smith, Beavers punted to Lange, and Doug- lass immediately returned it to Mountford. I J A fake kick and end run netted very little gain, and Beavers punted again, hav- ing it returned by Doug- ' lass. The Navy nailed our next forward pass, and K Douglass, after a short run on a fake kick, punted , ,L t to lVlountford, who dodged his way back forty yards through the Navy team. On the next play we were penalized for holding. We gained f1ve yards on a for- ward pass, and Beavers was stopped for a five yards loss on a fake kick. A punting duel between Beavers and Douglass fol- lowed, with the ball finally in 'Navy's possession. Doug- lass made ten yards on a fake kick, and after two un- successful attempts at the line, Douglass punted to Mount- ford. Smith made seven yards on a delayed pass, but we yt slit were soon forced to punt.' The Navy got a first down on the next two plays, and Douglass added thirty yards around Besson's end. Fowler here replaced Pul- len. r P -We secured the next forward pass of the Navy, and after ' a return of Beavers' sixty- five yard punt by Douglass, Mountford fumbled, and it was quickly covered by Dague, Surles was hurt '. I . . 1.3, and Greble replaced him. The Navy now had the ,ball on our twenty-five-yard line. Three plays brought them to the three-yard line. Cnr line held splendidly on the next two plays, but on the third A play Douglass carried the ball over the line on at delayed pass. Lange kicked the goal. AT PHILADELPHIA - P X Score: Navy, 6, Army, O. Our nien went back into the game with renewed vigor. Beavers kicked to Douglass. The same punting tactics en- sued, varied by a fake kick by Douglass, which netted the Navy ten yards, when-the ball was finally gotten by Mount- ford on our thirty-five-yard line. Beavers fumbled on an end run, Dague securing the ball. Douglass tried a short kick, but Weeks caught the ball square in the chest, hung to it, and started for the Navyls goal line. Our hopes began to rise, but Douglass nailed him from behind by a beautiful tackle before he had gone twenty-live yards. - After a couple of line plays Beavers drew back for a field goal from the forty-yard line. Here again was hope, but the kick went wide. Douglass again punted to Mount- ford. Punting tactics again ensued. Neither team seemed very successful in their line plays or in their forward passes. just be- fore the end of the half, Lange tried a field goal from the twenty-yard line, but VVeeks broke through and blocked it. The half ended with the ball in our possession on our thirty-yard line. Douglass began the second half by kicking off to Beavers, who immediately punted to Lange. The Navy tried a for- ward pass, but it was broken up by Stearns. Douglass punted to Mountford, who was tackled so hard by Slingluff that he dropped the ball. Dague covered it. Another for- ward pass was tried, but it was again broken up by Stearns. Douglass' next punt was caught by Beavers, and after a fake kick by Greble, Beavers punted seventy yards-the longest punt of the game-the ball going over Douglass' head. Erwin was down the field like a troop of cavalry, but Douglass by pretty turning eluded him and carried the ball back ten yards. Douglass immedi- ately kicked the ball. It waszrecovered by Dague. Underwood went in for Besson. Douglass quickly punted and Beavers shortly returned the compliment. Douglass punted again, Mountford dropping it, and Dague repeating his stunt. Another Navy forward BEFORE :THE GAME pass was broken up, and Douglass was dropped for six yards' loss by Moss. Two more punts were exchanged, by which we gained fifteen yards. Douglass was stopped for five yards' loss by Fowler, and on the next play dropped the ball, but recov- ered it for five yards' loss. Kern replacediMountford and ran Douglass next punt back twenty yards. Beavers' for- ward pass to Greble gave us thirty more, and we now had the ball on the Navy's twenty-five-yard line. Hanlon and Stockton replaced Smith and Underwood, respectively. We quickly made a first down in three line plays, and our chances brightened upg but the next two plays netted no gain, and Beavers dropped back for a field goal: It was a beautiful try, but the wind carried the ball a very few inches to the left of the posts. After Douglass, punt out we pulled in a couple more first downs and then the Navy secured a forward pass 'off Beav- ers. Punting followed, with the ball finally in our posses- sion. The next play Beavers, with Hanlon interfering for him, tore around the Navy's left end for forty yards-the longest run of the game. lN7e were penalized for holding SUMMARY FIRST H ALF. AR M Y. NAVY.

Northcroft, "The Army Conqueror" of last year, was called upon to do the stunt, but it was a feeble attempt, the ball going wide and rolling over the line. Ayers and johnson replaced Stearns and Beavers, respectively. A few minutes were left, in which Greble and Douglass exchanged punts. The game ended with the ball in our possession in the middle of the field. Thus ended what had been a most successful season. The question is asked: Does it profit us to conquer the whole world and then lose to the Navy? However, we are far from discouraged.

CD After the usual drudgery and monotony of indoor work, the baseball team of 1907 came out on the historic plain, kicked up its heels one or two days, and then started its sea- son April 13th by decisively beating the nine from Union by a score of 5-o. A hasty glance at the team would give you the impression that you had marked time for a year and were look- ing at the crack team of 1906. lf you scrutinized a A . little closer, undoubtedly you would miss "Charlie" Rockwell and Meyer. Pritchett was leading the men this year, and was in his old place at shortstop, his side partner, Vlfagner, was getting all loose balls to the east of second base, Groninger was playing drag-net around third base, l'Smiling" Beavers was in the box knocking holes in Mount- ford's glove. Bonesteel and Hanson were getting all the curved and high-angled trajectory balls with Meredith. First base was being experimented with. With this seasoned team well on its feet, the second game was played. In the seventh inning, with seven runs to Le- ' high's six, an experiment .y f -'1- 5 was tried with our battery, and as a result the game ended I3-7 in favor of the visiting team. The day was very cold, and it was hardly a fair trial for the younger pitchers. Harvard was next, and again XfVCSt Point was beaten in the final inning. With the score 4-4, Har- vard went to bat for the last time, and a few errors in the shape of wild throws aff? IN THE. CAGE. allowed the big red-jerseyed men from Cambridge to count their score with txvo digits. We were disappointed, but the team made up for their failure by outplaying Yale in every department of the game, and finally winning in the last in- ning by a clever execution of the squeeze play by Pritchett. A few statistics of this game may be of interest: A Bases on balls- Off Yale, 2, off West Point, I. Left on bases-Yale, 55 Army, 4. Two-base hits-Camp, Hanson.

After the second Yale suc- inning, ceeded in getting only one man to third and three as far as sec- ond. With the score The next game was with Pennsylvania. West Point lost by the score of 5-3. Unfortunately, the Lafayette game had to be stopped before it could be decided. This is to be regretted, for Mc- Neal was doing well, holding down the visitors to four hits. The New York University was hardly good practice, the Army 'getting sixteen hits to the former's two, and eleven runs to their three. The University of Virginia did not leave a sting with their de- feat. Susong was the headiest pitcher . seen at West Point this year, and he played havoc with the Army batting averages. A defeat by Penn. State was followed by the Navy game. Con- trary to the usual custom, our season did not end with this 4-3 in Yale's favor in the ninth, Johnson reached first on an error, Geiger walked and Byars beat out a bunt. On Groninger's Hy Iohnsonstole home, and a most deliberate and nerve-racking squeeze play brought Geiger home and Won the game. The Whole team was carried off the field and the score-board placed on the poop deck of the guard house, with the assistance of the O. C. game, but ran on for five games. With 'the nervous tension of the Navy game removed, the team went in and played baseball that nearly pleased the Hknockersl bench," and made the cadets regret that they had ever wasted timeilooking at the big leaguers. The batting average Nxvas' very good-not as good as in IQO6, it is true, but the teams which West Point played were THE KNOCKERS' BENCH , far superior. The fielding was not especially good in num- bers and figures, but as a general rule it was of a higher order, especially that of Pritchett, Groninger and Meredith. It was hoped, and with good and sufficient reason, that the team of 1908 was to be the best ever developed from the Academy, but early graduation puts on the "has been" list some of its best players-Groninger, Beavers, Meredith and Bonesteel-while by graduation in 1907 We lost Pritchett, Wagner and Hanson, leaving a catcher and Hrst baseman from the victorious team of 1907. Mountford was elected captain for 1908, to succeed Groninger. I The individual fielding and batting scores follow: Player Position Games A B R H SB SH S 0 Per ct. Beavers, l. f., 1b., p.

' The first inning looked as though' the score would be one which our posterity would tell to their grandchildren with much wild gesticulation and many ear-splitting grins, but the second inning sobered up the Corps a bit. By the fourth, the gray-coated spectators had ceased figuring out just how much boodle they Would' buy with the "results" of the game, and by the ninth inning all were morally certain that the "hood0o" was back at his old tricks again. D f The ninth inning was the most heart-breaking, nerve- wrecking five minutes that Navy supporters ever spent at West Point. VVith the score 5-4 in the Navy's favor and THE ARMY WINS IN THE AREA Pritchett, the captain of the teani, up to bat, we may well cxclaim, with apologies to the Navy cheering section: "Did he hit it? Yes! Oh, very well, then. Did two runs conie in? Yes! Oh, very well, then." Enter bedlani from right. Brass band plays violently, left. Curtain. THE GAME IN DETAIL First fnning: Navy went to the bat.

Pritchett singled, Haverkamp scored, and the ball being thrown past Hambsch by Lange, Groninger scorecl.. b This game puts the Army two games ahead in the series of games played thus far, and is the only game won from the Navy on the VVest Point diamond, thereby playing Vooda on the Hoodoo. The features of the game were the helding of Groninger and Pritchett for the Army, and of Gillam and Stiles for the Navyf The gallant up-hill fight of the Army team and the final turning of what seemed certain defeat into victory will long be remembered. The spirit of the thing would do credit to the best athletic team that ever wore the uniform of the Military Academy. ARMY. A. B. R. H. s. ia. s. H. P. o. A. E.

Our predecessors have recorded the successes and failures of our fencing teams in preceding volumes of the HOW- ITZER., and to those who read the How1'rZ13R each year it is superfluous to relate the record made by the Army teams in Intercollegiate meets, but for the benefit of those who now for the first time peruse the pages of the XK7est Point Annual we will give a brief summary of standing of the first three teams in each intercollegiate meet since the Army's advent into this field of sport.

The fact that the Army has always stood nrst or second tells its own tale of devotion to this sport on the part of the Army's representation at these meets. Hyskvloa.

DICKINSON , Captain I9OB The growing interest displayed by the Corps and the Academy's friends is very gratifying, and it is hoped that the appreciation and support which this sport deserves may always be accorded it. To quote from the Army Athletic Association Bulletin No. 1, of 1906: "Since the Army's participation in these contests, a really remarkable record has been established. it This is not the result of chance or luck, but of hard, grinding, con- scientious work, stretched over a period of four and one- half months. Too much praise cannot be bestowed upon the young men who take up fencing for the purpose of up- holding the Army's record, and they are worthy of every consideration and encouragement. The gallery which makes other sports so popular is entirely absent in fencing, and the game on that account does not receive the recognition and encouragement to which it is entitled 5 and yet it cannot be denied that it requires more skill, more self-control and self- reliance, a keener sense of perception and action-all of which is gained at a greater sacrifice-than any other sport." No one has a better knowledge of what qualities are in- dispensable to the successful fencer than Captain Koehler, who made the above report. Expert himself in handling the foils, and versed in the science of athletic training in all its various forms, we may accept his estimate of the requisites of a good fencer and of the value of such training. But Captain Koehler has done more than coach and advise to make the Army's record so enviable. No man can go through a season with him without imbibing something of that fighting spirit and determination to win which must be added to skill if victory is to rest with a team. VV e have in Professor Vauthier not only an accomplished swordsman and master of his art, but a tireless instructor, who mingles enthusiasm with skill in his efforts to turn out a winning team. On December 2ISf a team composed of Cadets Sneed and Dickinson, of 1908, and Sears, of IQOQ, was entered in the Junior Foils championship meet held in New York under the auspices of the Amateur Fencers' League of America. Columbia and Yale, of the college teams, were entered, and six other teams representing different fencing clubs in or near New York City. The Yale team proved our strongest opponents, but the Army team strolled away with the cham- pionship and incidentally brought back some gold medals as souvenirs of the event. i Beside the regular schedule of dual meets this year we shall meet Columbia and Princeton in a preliminary meet two weeks before the finals in New York. As one of the teams will be eliminated at this meet, an exciting contest may be confidently expected. Giving to the early graduation of the class of 1908, the team will lose two of its members in Cadets Sneed and Dickinson. This leaves only Sears, ,OQ, who has had any experience in competition bouts, but he should develop into an individual champion this year. For the other two mem- bers of the team, Greble, Smith, Mills and Hanna, of IQOQ, and Sohlberg and Cocroft, of IQIO, offer good material to choose from, and the places will be hotly contested. The record of the past has been one of which we may feel justly proud. At present the swordsman trophy is in alien halls, calling for champions to the rescue, and we write with confidence the response to that call. VVe must have our trophy back! Xa N N N S N?

The ever exciting and always interesting Outdoor Track Meet was. held May 30, 1907. The Class of 1908 lived up not only to its expectations, but also to its record, and won the meet handily with a sum total of 159 points. The first class won second place with IIQ2 points, 1909 was a close third with IIS? points, and 1910 last with 405 points. Only onerecord was broken, the hammer throw, Watkins ' breaking his own record. Perhaps the most interesting event was the mile run, which Dailey Hnally won, with Glover a strong close second. These two men fought it out for 1760 yards, nip and tuck all the way, and the race was not won or lost until the tape was broken. Two new events were added: the football kicking, contest, in which over a score of men entered and a few contested, and the 220-yard low hurdles.. The first would be a good addition if the proper spirit were displayed, and the second vindicated itself. Beavers was the all-round athlete for the third successive year, winning Firsts in the high hurdles and broad jump, and sec- onds in the low hurdles and high jump. The 1908 Track Team was well balanced and had strong men in every department, as is seen by the fact that in only one et a first ' ' ' or a second place.

Our schedule was confined solely to the college teams, and the end of the season saw us in a fair position to compete any day with the leading teams of the country. This is saying a good deal when our opportunities are considered. The game was what the men chose to make it. Few brought much thorough knowledge of the game to the Academy. Rockwell had had a good deal of experience before enteringh and no captain has ever been more wisely chosen. With him, success was primarily due to his never-tiring exertions, not only as a player but as an instructor of the game. We had the good fortune to have Mr. Harry Fisher, of Columbia, with us on a few occasions, but his visits were so rare as to necessarily confine his instruction to the more technical individual faults of the men, and to render any set style of play development impossible. The Hrst game proved one of the most exciting ones of the season. Pratt led at the end of the first half, but by hard work on our side we scored a goal just as the final whistle blew, making the score 3 3-3 3. ln the extra period it took three minutes before Rockwell shot the deciding goal, leaving us victors by a score of 35-33. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Polytechnic, and Stevens were easily defeated, but served as valuable practice contests preparatory to the game with Princeton. This game was the most bitterly fought of the year, and until the extra period taken to decide it was practically a repetition of the Pratt game. Princeton won by a phenomenal goal thrown from the very middle of the court. Not the least feature of this game was Mr. Fisher's admirable work as referee. Columbia's team of fast players administered the worst defeat of the season. Hurley's all-round work was the best ever seen on our court. Colgate, C. C. N. Y., and Lehigh defeated us by small scores, and the team greatly felt the absence of Rockwell, who was in the hospital at this time. The games with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Penn. State, Fordham, Troy, and T rinity-all strong teams-resulted in well-earned victories. During the season we scored 494 points to our opponents' 314. GEORGE W. GOETHALS The ambition and goal of all our athletics is a game with the Navy. Basketball has now become a Well-founded sport at the Academy. Our schedule this year embraces all the "Big Six" save Yale and Cornell. Prospects of a game with Annapolis Were shattered by early graduation. With the game now Well on its. feet in the Mary- land city, it is to be hoped that another season will see-the Army and the Navy meeting in the game of basketball, attended by the same spirit of sportsmanship which has characterized the two Academies in other branches of athletics. , Yeqm 4 5 N' A 65 E .

By the en- thusiasm and attendance it might be surmised that interest in this annual function has not diminished. The surprise of the evening came When the supposed invincible 1908 Tug-of-YVar Team was out-tugged by the lighter but more clock-like team of 1910. But the latter was in turn pulled in- side out by 1909. This was the Hrst time that a plebe found that upper classnien would not let him brace. A's were presented to men who had Won them during the year, a cup was presented to Beavers, '08, for winning all-around athlete in the Outdoor Meet, and the sword for the best athlete of his class was presented to Watlcins, '07. Gold medals were awarded to hrsts and silver to seconds. Hall, '08, took the Pierce-Currier Foster Memorial Cup for the best gymnast.

M P0L0 -T l ln the year 1900 the first polo ponies ever brought to the Academy arrived, and the gameof polo was established here. These ponies were bought by the Government authorities, who each year buy and send here several new ones, thus constantly keeping the number up to about forty. - Polo is the only sport, the expense of which the Gov- ernment bears. The Government does this in order to encourage skill in horsemanship and to give Hrst classmen advantages which will enable them to become experienced riders. Results prove the investment to be a judicious one, as it has accomplished more than the results for which it was established. It has Worked its Way with long strides as a sport, until it will soon take its place beside football and baseball as one of our cleanest and most interesting sports. Such good results have not been brought about en- ru. - ... tirely by the Corps support and the enthusiasm of the first class, but a large amount of credit is due Captain Oliver' and Lieutenant Morris, who played in our games and patiently taught us the game during those hot summer days. And We desire to express here our thanks to both of them for their efforts. The ponies are a good average bunch, and are con- stantly getting better. The squad was developed this year with an idea of each man having the same advantages in the preparatory work and selecting from the entire squad a first team to represent the Academy. The first team selected was Peterson, Chaney, Sumner and Ellis. Early graduation prevents the match games. The best game of the season was one entitled "The Spoonoid Game." T Pendleton not being able to get Prom- ise, rode Sweetheart, Schulz got Promise, Garrison rode Trash, while Chaney took Cocoa. On the other side Peter- son rode Punch, Cullum, Tea Tray, Sumner taking Topper, and Muncaster, Taps. Captain Oliver, riding Coquette, inspired the game. The main features ofuthe game were Garrison's work on Trash, Pendleton's handling of Sweet- heart, and Schulz getting there on Promise. Peterson did good work until Punch gave out. Promise collided with Sweetheart and knocked Pendleton off. of course Cocoa and Tea Tray came together, Chaney being badly used up. At the close of the game Muncaster was found asleep at the butts with Taps, and Topper was seen quietly eating grass in the center of the Held. U g .Af V' ..

Bartlett, of the Class of IQO5, in the season of 1903-4. Seven games were played, of which West Point Won six. Thensecond season Bartlett was again captain, and a harder schedule was attempted, the only game lost being one to St. Paul's School, by a score of 2-1. The season of 1904-5 was a discouraging one, only six of the sixteen games scheduled being played. West Point again lost only one game, and that to the strong team from the Trinity Club of Brooklyn. The result of the Hockey season of 1906-7 was dis- tinctly a success, a great deal of interest being displayed by the men of the Corps, and the Weather man permitting the playing of nine of the eighteen games scheduled. Probablylthis season Was the Hrst in which team work was developed to any degree, and though a good hockey machine has never been developed, each year brings the Hockey team nearer--to the level of college teams. In this season West Point beat its first college team, ' The team of 1906-7 Was: Left Wing, Gordon, Right Trinity, by a score of I-O, but lost to Cornell in a fast and Wing, Bartlett, G.g Center, Parker, Rover, Hayes, P.g well-played game by a score of 4-o after we held the strong Cover Point, Park fCapt.j g Point, Rogers, N.

' Q A Some fifteen years ago a few cadets tried to start this game at the Academy, but lacking the incentive derived from competition with outside teams, it soon died a natural death. Last year a second attempt was made to bring the ,game to the notice of officers and cadets. Its introduction awakened an unexpected enthusiasm among the latter. A squad of forty- seven men volunteered as candidates to form a team. These men could be granted practically no privileges, in most cases had to pay for their own equipment, and could practice only on Wednesdays and Saturdays and in such odd moments as they could spare from their duties. Late in the spring a game was arranged with the freshmen of Stevens Institute. This took place at West Point on May 25. The team which the Army sent on the field that day had practiced together only twice, and as it was the one game of the season, fifteen substitutions were made. In spite of this fact the play was principally about Stevens' goal, and VVest Point won, with a score of 3-2. That this score was no higher was due prin- cipally to the team's failure to shoot goals-a weakness resulting from in- sufficient practice. The outcome was, however, more than encouraging, and the advocates of the game took a fresh interest in it, and with the interest came the enthusiasm necessary for the formation of a regular team. Hughes, E. S., was elected captain, with Greble, manager, for the coming year, and the chances of a full schedule and a good team to play it seemed better. During the autumn and early part ofthe winter challenges were received from Harvard, Stevens, johns Hopkins, Lehigh and Cobalt. These challenges, owing to the unexpected and disastrous interference of an early graduation, VV est Point was obliged to decline. The loss of five members of the team by graduation, the increased duties of those left behind, and the neces- sity of concentrating all available energy on, established athletics made it seem wiser to temporarily abandon the idea of an official schedule. 2:5 .

FIRST CL.ASSMEN'S CLUB 224 run etavvntwv eth os -1- UR predecessors handed down the Club to us with the assurance that it had been a power for good in their class, 0 and with the hope that we would make it permanent and secure for the lirst classes yet to come. l up VVe accepted the Club in the same broad spirit in which it was given to us, and we, too, can testify to the good influence which it has exerted on the class. Since our Plebe days we have longed for a place where we could meet our classmates and enjoy together the few idlemoments which come to us each day. They were and are few enough indeed, but even so, they are the ones in which we see our classmates away from the many duties of the day and learn to know and appreciate them. , I ' There are always good fellows in every division and company who are more than gladto have you come to their rooms to visit them, for in spite of the fact that but two chairs are provided for the two occupants of the room, your host very gen- erously gives them up and proceeds to mount the clothes-press or the radiator. This is conducive to visiting-a fellow always feels welcome, and the host quickly realizes that his "house" is about as suitable for the entertainment of visitors as would be an upper berth in a sleeping car. I ' This naturally leads to a limited number of visits, most of which are restricted to the occupants of the same division, and hence it is that little company groups spring up and men go on from year to year without knowing all of the men of their own class. The Club has changed all of that, for now the members of the class have a'place where they can meet and enjoy themselves and where old acquaintances are rapidly cemented into strong friendships. 225 The class has no apologies to offer for the Club. From the Board of Governors clown to the last man in the class, we have all done our best to use the Club without abusing its privileges, and if the class has done anything toward making the Club a permanent institution, we congratulate ourselves and pass it down to the next class, with every Wish that it will prove to them, as it has to us, a place of much good and many pleasures.

MATILE President ENOCH B. GAREY, .I Secretary The Dialectic Society as such exists merely in name, and its chief object, at present, is the production of the "Hundredth Night Play." This isn't really true. but it has been said year by year till the memory of man runneth not to the contrary. Since there is to be no play this year, it became necessary to resort to expedient to get it off. Far be it for us to disregard such a time- honored custom. The history of the Dialectic Society begins nearly a century ago. In May, I8I6, "a society for thc purpose of improvement in debate, composition and recitation" was organized under the name of the Amosophic. In 1822 another society called the Philo- mathean was organized, and the following year the two merged as the Ciceronian. In 1824 this was changed to the Dialectic, and such it has remained , To those of us Whose literary pursuits terminated with "the little green B. S.," the amount of work done and the interest displayed is marvelous, and it is with wonder that we look on a zeal which could 'keep Hfty cadets up after taps in a discussion of "States' Rights" or "Is Slavery a Crime?" Yet such is the early history of the Dialectic. Here in such arguments, with a few members as the only audience, convictions of right and wrong were formed Which may have played no small part in shaping the country 's historyg for here such men as Grant, Thomas, Pope, Longstreet, and Han- cock met and discussed from both sides those questions they were soon to decide with very different arguments, and with the whole world as an audience. After the War the Society slowly declined as an important factor in cadet life, and although the work was still kept up, little was heard of it. In 1871, however, it again sprang into a brief but lurid prominence by 'starting a Ere which burned off the fourth Hoor of barracks at 2 A. M.-40 below zero. In this unfortunate Fire were destroyed its library of 5oo volumes and all but one of the Society's records. From this time on its literary efforts con- sisted largely in the preparation of the "Howitzer, " which was read before the Corps "with" on the one hundredth day till June. In the last few years the "I-IoWitzer"' has been published in book form, and on the one hundredth night a play has been given, supposedly under the auspices of the Dialectic Society, but it is doubtful if many of the participants know even the meaning of the name. Probably the introduction of athletics has had much to do with its decline, and it is doubtful,-indeed, if enough interest can ever be revived in the Society and its work to bring it back to its old place. bf.

Assistant Librarian HISTORY responsible positions of leadership-such is the goal, how- In "The Spirit of Qld West Point," General Schaff speaks affectionately of "Howards little prayer meeting," as it was called, which, under the leadership of that earnest officer, used to meet weekly in a vacant room in the Eighth Division. As this was in the early sixties, it seems to have been the forerunner of the Y. M. C. A., which was not regularly organized until 1880. In Igoo the first delegate was sent to Northfield, and since then the size of the delegation has been increased until at present the Association is represented at Northfield by twelve members, and at the annual Presidents Convention by two delegates. For the acquiescence on the part of the military authorities which has made this possible, the Y. M. C. A. is deeply grateful. OBJ ECT It is the object of the Association to be an influence for good in the lives of the men in the Corps whom it can reach. To stand for high ideals and noble purposes, to send men into the Army a little better fitted for their influential and 232 ever imperfectly attained, toward which the Association strives. A MEETINGS Meetings are held on two evenings a week throughout the year. They are often of a musical nature. Essays of a historical character, debates, talks about the Service, etc., have been presented. 'lt is difficult to plan meetings that shall be uniformly interesting and appealing, but the effort is 'made to have these meetings as broad in scope and as in- teresting to the Corps as possible. VVe welcome many vis- itors through the year, and the large audiences which some of these have had prove that the men of the Corps are deeply interested when a true message is brought to them. Some of the outside speakers whom we have listened to during the past year are Mr. Speer, Mr. Eosdick, Mr. Bates, Mr. McFarland, Mr. Edwards, Mr. Mercer and Mr. Murray. MEMBERSHIP The membership is in no way limited to the members of a particular church or set of churches. Anyone who feels that the Y. M. C. A. has something to offer him is welcomed either as an active or an associate member, as he prefers. BIBLE STUDY This branch of Association work started in 1901 with a single class, a-nd has grown steadily until now about half the Corps is enrolled. 'While it is appreciated how incom- l KENDRICK HALL petent our means may be of attacking such a large and diffi- cult subject, it is thought worth while to become even a little familiar with the book which, when properly presented, is interesting above all other books. The courses are varied more or less from year to year, at present comprising a study of Dr. Jenks' Qof CornellQ interesting book, "The Social Sig- nificance of the Teachings of Jesus," and a study of the Book of Acts. I A . THE HAND-BOOK ' It was thought until last year that a Hand-book could not be successfully published here on account of peculiar con- ditions, lack of time, etc. It was found that time could be made for this purpose, as for anything else that is worth while, and a Hand-book was produced that has proved of service, not only to fourth classmen, but to the members of all classes. Among other interesting features it contains articles about "Corps Ideals," by Colonel.Larned, historical sketches, and maps of riding limits and the "New West Pointf, The Hand-book will hereafter be published annu- ally, and the committee will be glad to send one to graduates or to anyone else who may be interested. , I OTHER ACTIVITIES Among other Y. M.. C. A. interests may be mentioned the reading-room, to which members of all classes are welcome, the Sunday-school for the children of the Post, conducted under the supervision of the Y'. M. C. A., and the classes which are at times organized for the study of the Philippines. The Association is interested in whatever is for the good of the Academy, and it asks for such sympathy and support as will enable it to broaden. its field of work and increase its sphere of influence for good. I I MISS lNEltiflS tfdllfdlbld CLAS HERE is probably no person here at West Point who can look out upon the Army and claim more true friends T from among the graduates of the Academy than can Miss Warner. Year in and year out she welcomes us- W be we of whatever class or condition-with a never-failing friendliness, kindness. Miss W'arner's is THE Bible class. Most anyone can tell you when and where it is held, and at what time "the boat leaves." if Let us suppose that it is Sunday afternoon and that we have wended our way down the romantic way of Flirtation to the boathouse and that we have rowed ourselves across the Hudson to Miss NVarner's summer home on Constitution Island. The skiff ride across the wide waters of the Hudson is far from being the unenjoyable part of the afternoon's trip. Once landed, the man who has been there before will promptly point out historical features of the Island. In the Revolutionary days Constitution Island was fortified before VVest Point. And right here at our very feet is the spot whence in those days stretched the mighty chain across the river to Gee's Point. The very house where Miss Warner now waits to greet you once knew the footsteps of VVashington and Hamilton and Lafayette. But let us digress. We are at a Bible classg one where the Bible is taught from the Bible-and with what tact and Christian patience! There is an air about it all of peace and quiet contentment. One instinctively feels at home. The plebe is carried back to his own home in the North or the South or the East or the West, and the first classman assures himself that here is at least one of the many things he will be sorry to leave behind at graduation. For Miss VVarner there cannot be said too much in admiration and praise. To the Army and to the Academy she has ever been the staunchest of friendsg to the cadet, a wise and loving adviser, a beautiful example of her own teachings and faith. 234 COLONEL PETER S. MICHIE .

It is only a transitory 5' " 'P' relief, a drop in the cup of happiness, but it is something. As it is with the ship, so it was with the class. VV e had come here, a heterogeneous assembly of American youth, we had braved the tempests, buffeted the waves, and finished three-fourths of our journey. We were now to establish our last camp and prepare ourselves for the last light-for at the end of camp we would draw our sabres, throw away the scabbards, and cut our way through the three lines of attack, Engineering, Law, and Drdnance. 236 It was customary to suspend drills during the Hrst two weeks of camp and we were preparing to enjoy them to the utmost, for "l1Vhz1t is so rare as a day in Iune,?- A day without drills, so we may spoon." But to have both was better still. The clay following grad- uation, we packed the necessary articles on wagons, pitched our tents, and marched to camp with the customary cere- mony. i But now everything was arranged and the regular camp routine commenced. Our dream of indolence was not long in coming to an end, for after having been in camp but a few days, a very complete schedule of drills was published for the "guidance of all concernedf' Suffice it to say that we all were con- cerned except those few who managed to get more or less extended leaves of absence to visit Doctor Gandy's famous Health Resort. A first classman has an inherent "perfect right" to a two-weeks' freedom from drills at the beginning A. M. No, this is not early, cadets usually awake long before this, but they do not like to arise at this time, nor an hour or two later, for that matter. On Sundays we had two reveilles, the second being a short time before noon. The if t IW: I4 J' Llfgmnibl. - GUARD 'MOUNTING IN CAMP E ' of camp, but this year the Sovereign had decreed otherwise. Of course the drills took only a very small part of our time, and the periods between them were entirely our own-for the purpose of changing uniforms. Reveille was at 5.30 ' 1 only apparent difference to a sleepy cadet was in the word- ing of the skin, the demerits being the same whether the b report read "Absent from reveille" or "Sleeping in chapel." ' M . Twenty minutes after reveille, the policeman came down the company street. Don't be alarmed, for he never ar- rests anyone. Not having a patrol wagon, he used a mono- cycle, commonly called a wheelbarrow. Into this he would pile the remains of the last night's boodle-fight. However, he never asked incriminating questions, which was lucky for us, as at this stage of the game we knew nothing of "privi- leged questions." Thus the policeman's visit was a relief, and our only fear was that he might remember in front of whose tent he found a bottle, in case the Sovereign walked abroad in the wee hours of the morning. At six we went to breakfast, and on our return the drill schedules were published. Everybody went to the dough- boy drill. That it might benefit a first class buck to occa- sionally appear in front of the company with a sword, seems never to have been thought of. Bucks carried the same guns to the same drills to which they were accustomed to go as plebes. The only difference was that instead of "double-timing" for Corky Davis, we "double-timed" for Willie Pickle. At 8 o'clock class drills commenced. The first class "fruit basket" certainly contained lemons. Every graduate knows what P. M. E. means, and our experiences, in all probability, were those of the oldest West Pointers in the Army. At first we were taken back of the cemetery to dig trenches, bomb-proofs, and other earthworks. "We do not intend to teach you how to wield a pick or handle a shovel, but merely to teach you how much work to expect from a man." The first day we opened the front of our gray shirts, the second day we removed them, but to no effect, so on the third day off came the undershirt, and the first classman looked no different than the men digging the AREA BIRDS IN CAMP power-house tunnel. We kept up our spirits by singing Jimmy James' "I doan lika dis excavaten, It doan agree wid nie." Having become proficient in the gentle art of shoveling, we started at trestle-bridges, pontoon-bridges, pile drivers and ferries. This was not as bad as digging, but the walk up the hill and back to camp lacked all the cheerfulness of the quartermaster's transportation, which had been furnished while we went to the diggings. P. M. E. alternated with target practice. The skill ac- quired in our "yearlingU camp proved to be a benefit, for at the end of camp we had twenty-one expert riflemen, four- teen sharpshooters, and nineteen marksmen. CAVALRY DRILL ' One of our most pleasant drills was field artillery. It was some time before we could understand just what all that hand waving and shaking really meant, and a chief of section or of platoon not infrequently gave one verbal, com- mand and a signal which did not correspond. However, this did not last long, and we were soon able to dispense with verbal commands. VV e had our favorite teams, and it seemed that the lead team of the first section piece was a general favorite, for nobody wanted to make it work. Schulz essayed it once, but had to work harder than the horses. u - 1 ' The Bull Pen furnished a large part of our amusement, and there is no doubt that our stunts were of such high standard that the IOI Ranch could have gotten many point- ers from us. We soon acquired the knack of recovering from a "policing" in a graceful manner, amid the plaudits of an appreciative feminine gallery. Immediately after equitation we went to the pistol-butts for revolver practice. At first we used slow fire at short ranges, and successively increased the ranges and shortened the time of fire, finally ending by galloping around the track and emptying the six- shooter in regular bandit style. At mountain gun-drill we received our usual' complement of Swishlets. "Drag ropes .are used to drag the gun up steep slopes, otherwise they may be used to drag the mules." Preparatory to going to Fort Wright, we made frequent and regular trips to Primary, to learn all about "Target, that towed, target, towed by tug," "Target that three-masted sloopf' and others of like character. It was here that Skag Williams formed his friendship for Swish McKee. Drills ceased at noon, and after dinner each man spent his time as suited him best. Polo, as usual, was a good at- traction, and every afternoon the cavalry plain was the scene of clashing ponies, swinging mallets, and rolling' balls, and it was as much as a 1nan's life was worth to try to cross the plain. The most frequent question was, "Have you qualified ?H After a sufficient number were able to answer yes, we were allowed ganized, but as they made it a point not to go out on the same day, our expected regatta did not take place. Parade occurred at 5.30 daily, with the exception of Sat- urdays, and was immediately followed by guard mounting. During the latter ceremony the spoonoids flocked to the visit- ors' seats to pay court at the to play regular games on the xr. polo flats. Golf had its adherents, It was usually played without a ' ball, and even a club was sometimes superfluous, though V V f P .xg a bag, on the contrary, was quite necessary, and like all burdens was heaviest when homeward bound. Tennis claimed its own. Every after- noon the courts were filled with cadets defying Old Sol to the last. Later in the sum- mer a tournament for sinffles 6 PoLo SQUAD and doubles was held, in which a few surprises took place. Ask Garrison about them. Rowing and swimming were favorite sports-the former especially so after we had witnessed the Intercollegiate Re- gatta at Poughkeepsie. Several company crews were or- shrine of some fair divin- ity. After supper we amused ourselves in various ways un- til time for hops or concerts. Down in "E" company street, amateur theatricals reached their highest development. No one doubts that Fat Stock- ton ought to have been born a dancing girl, and from I-Iiclcam's f a m o u s "One- armed Piper" stunt it is equally certain that he has one arm too many. llVl1O will for- get W7oodbury's wedding, and all the nice shoes he received! The general parade was also the scene of many water fights and ducking parties. When no one else could be found, a Northfield man generally helped us out. During the early part of camp it was generally believed that Cullum Hall would be closed for redecoration and re- pairs, and the thought that we would have our hops in the little shoes in their trunks. jimmy james' "Matildie Ann" "Academy" building was not very pleasant. I-Iowever, the never failed tondraw applause, while his rumor was unfounded, though on several occasions when the electric lights refused to do their duty we had to resort to the use of lanterns and cal- i I cium lights. The hops were very well attended, and a source of genuine pleasure. On concert nights the parade was illuminated by innumer- able joss sticks, and filled with merry parties enjoying not only the music, but their mu- tual society. On Sunday nights we were favored with selections by Matile's orches- tra and by vocal solos. There is no telling what effect Beav- ers' rendition of "Love Me, and the World is Mine" had "I doan lika dis ocean, It doan agree wid meg It seems that eb'rything I eat VVants'to. put out to'sea" reminded us of our pleasant trip to the Hjimtown Impo- sition." There is an end to all things, good and bad. Our camp was no exception. After ten weeks of well proportioned work and pleasure we were all ready to go back to barracks, even back to Uboningf' for every day passed was a day nearer graduation' On the morning of the twenty-eighth of August we packed our be- on the class, as so far but few ' TARGET PRACTICE longings and marched back to engagements have been announced, but it is generally- barracks. 'Camp Michie was of the past. VVhat first class- known that many are quite willing to pack certain dainty man will say that he .did not enjoy it? FINIS.

It was an end befitting any camp-the true days of pleasure at Wfest Point-but it seemed peculiarly appropriate that a camp so successful as P. S. Michie should wind up in a blaze of light and of glory. VVeeks ahead the most elaborate preparations were made. Nothing was left undone, no promising scheme but was worked out, however great the labor and cost. The camp became a hive of busy workmen, and the ability of the managers, backed by the enthusiastic support of all, assured the success of the Illu- mination. Cf all the crowd who were drawn together at the behest of our Buster Brown invitations, there was not one who did not vote the show anmarvel of ingenuity. Following a time-honored practice, the night was inau- gurated withlthe grand procession of all the performers. At the head of the column came a van of black policemen, then in succession, chorus girls, Indian chiefs, picturesque cowboys. All the long list of them issued from the camp and started, amidst a pandemonium of noise, around the parade. A lane was formed through the gathered crowd, and through this passed the motley procession. At inter- vals, bursts of colored fire lit up the way and lent a weird and fantastic glare to the whole. At length, the long line wound its way back into camp, and the gates were thrown open to our guests. VVithin a few minutes the crowd had poured through the sands of electric lights and Japanese lanterns made the scene as bright as day. On every hand barkers and spielers were loudly proclaiming the merits of the wonders within. Here the revived mummy of Rameses stalked proudly by, or a pair A GENERAL PARADE entrance and into the general parade. Here the lirst attrac- tion was a gymnastic exhibition. While many remained to watch this, others slowly wandered about the camp, observ- ing the marvelous transformation it had undergone. Thou- of quills were busily engaged in brushing away the leaves from the Com's path, hanging breathlessly on his every word and look. A lengthy Uncle Sam was leading his Pampered Pet by the hand, smiling indulgently all the while at the gleeful antics of the young cadet. There a human roulette Wheel spun its patrons dizzily around, while in the back- ground a Waterfall was sparkling and gleaming in the light. At the very end of the parade stood the reproduction, 'chis- torically correct," of Benny I-Iaven's old home, where Bill Garey was earnestly inviting the spectators to have one in the old tavern. Everywhere merriment was unrestrained as crowd after crowd of laughing people moved about the general parade or took in the side shows of the company streets. In HA" company, Punk Ellis' police court held sway. Vlfith a perfect babel of yells and cries they would drag some unsuspecting victim to an improvised cell, whence he would immediately be jerked out to face some farcical charge. "B" company boasted as her southern exhibition a collec- tion of the beauties of the world, the charms of the French maids vieing with the rare loveliness of the L. P. In the northern end of the company street they had built a real "Sumner," whose realistic pitching and rolling recalled many of the heaving sensations of that memorable "lite on the ocean wave." Perhaps the most attractive of all the shows was the original streets of Damascus, located in "C" company street. To the playing of eerie Oriental tunes, the various magicians performed their feats of legerdemain. Eire-eaters and gun-twirlers caught the eye with their skill- ful manipulations. They were all eclipsed, however, by the Flowing Eastern dances of La Belle Fatima, whose houri-like grace would have adorned the court of a sultan. ,JUIL I AC-ONY'S HONKI HONK I These were but a few of the many attractions. "D" company ran a VVestern saloon, where refreshing drinks of red lemonade were dished out to the crowd. Many crude paintings adorned its walls, pictures of the celebrities of the dayg though curiously enough no one seemed to know who it was that "walked with a lisp." Here, too, was a ring- tossing booth, where the successful competitors were re- warded with beautiful bell buttons and mess kit knives. Further on, in "EH company street, a Crystal Maze offered up its intricacies for the amusement of the crowd. The lower end of HF" company had been made over into a Bohe- mian cafe, where refreshments were served between the acts of the comedy enacted on the stage at one end. The upper end of the company furnished one of the many en- trances into Bootlick Alley, which had been turned into a veritable greenery. Here were numerous little spooning nooks and cozy corners, with benches conveniently strewn around, where one could rest up preparatory to a new sortie out into the crowd, or taste, perhaps, the sweets of a dual isolation. But easily the most uncommon and the most successful affair of the night was the Scenic Railway, an engineering feat in itself. From a high platform many feet above the Y. M. C. A. tent. an inclined track led down to the camp hedge. Whirling down this chute would go carload after carload of passengers, the femmes joining in a chorus of E O iiiiiliiliii DEWDROP INN' 5 01--4 5'9m- 1--' ' 0141.

So quick indeed was the descent that few had time to enjoy the beautiful scenic effects produced by Baldy Hart- man,s famous Sahara sunrise showing over the easternline of trees. Throughout the Illumination the Railway was kept in constant operation, the truest indication of its popularity and success. As is the wont of these meeting places of youth and pleasure, time fled by and the end arrived. Many had wit- nessed the amusements of the night, and not one of that crowd but had been robbed of some portion of gloom, and had been given, in its place, a little measure of unalloyed mirth. And when, during the long winter evenings, the reveries of the cadet shall search back among the golden days of that camp, not a small part of the summer's pleas- ure will be found in that night of the Illumination of Camp P.

Therefore when it became known that the Corps of l Cadets were to venture forth upon the briny deep and incidentally to visit the Jamestown Exposition, all land lubbers sat up and took notice. Nautical knowledge rose suddenly in popular esteem, and Pa Wfat- son dilated in glowing terms upon the natural and imported beauties of fair Virginia until the day of our Wfith the usual confusion of orders we embarked on the morning of the 4th of june on that "greyhound of the seas," the transport "Sumner" Once on board, everyone endeav- ored with great success to get in everyone else's way and to create as much confusion as possible. After a dignified delay orders were given to weigh the anchor. "How do they do that when they haven't any scales ?".asked Hub Bowen. But it was done, nevertheless, and then, cheered off by all the "fair ones" of the Post, the 'K Sumner 'l swung 'round and started on her momentous journey. departure came. ' i 257 On the trip down the river we spread ourselves out on tl1e deck and feasted our eyes on the picturesque brickyards which adorn the banks of the Hudson. klrVe gazed with long- ing eyes upon Manhattan, which didn't appear at all con- cerned inv our passage. Dinner was served in style, after an appetizing wait, and we did ample justice to the concoc- tions set before us. lt was well we did so, for most of us could not eat another square meal before reaching james- town, and then we could not get one. I ,l , I If I I .H . f H f f' 1 ' 1 '. . , 1? 3 AY Y, l if i ' AT THE SOUTH DOCK About half an hour outside Sandy Hook several unfor- tunates began to feel sadly out of harmony with their envi- ronment. As evening approached, the number of victims increased, for mal de mer is no respecter of persons. Guard mounting was a farce for the spectators and a tragedy for the participants. Retreat was a harrowing ceremony, but we observed it-just to be military. Then those who felt indisposed turned in, while a braver minority stayed on deck and tried to look cheerful. r All the first class quills occupied officers' staterooms, and as for the rest of us-ask the poor buck who was rocked to sleeplessness that night in his humble steerage bunk. Most of us were alive in the morning, and all turned out to view Hampton Roads, which we entered shortly after N OFF FOR JAMESTOWN J ON THE HUDSON . SEASICK noonday. A violent thunderstorm greeted our arrival,and the wisdom of our superiors decreed that we should not go ashore that night. And so it came to pass that on the next morning we made our triumphant entry. We didn't look particularly spoony, but the audiencewas small and, we trust, uncritical. Wlieii We reached Camp Robert E. Lee we found our tents already pitched, and We proceeded to make ourselves appear civil- ized once more. By dinner-time we were all acclimated to the soil and ready for the Worst. VVe got it. VVe were marched to a big pavilion, Where there Was plenty of room but nothing to eat. Later we dined at the Inside Inn, Where We fared better. Like every other trip of the Corps, this one had its soirees and discomiitures. We weren't taken down there primarily for pleasure, but everyoiie managed to get his share of fun out of the place. VVe paid our respects to the populace by daily drills and parades, and in the evening we took in or were taken in by the l1Var Path. As a sanitary precaution we were forbidden to indulge in water or soft drinks away from the camp. Certain naughty cadets transgressed this hygienic order and suffered in con- sequence. Those who scrupulously avoided all water came through unscathed. The Exposition authorities did all in their power to make our stay pleasant, and the hospitality of the people of the surrounding towns was unbounded. Hops and receptions awaited our coming and Norfolk and Old Point Comfort became centres of attraction for more than one cadet. The spoonoid was largely in evidence and conducted a busy AT THE INSIDE INN A 259 - RAZZLE.-DAZZLE week's campaign. Many availed themselves of the invita- tion to visit the camps of the Twelfth Cavalry and the 'l'wenty--third Infantry. 'As a crowning bit of courtesy, the management of the Beautiful Orient requested the presence of the Corps at a free entertainment, which was attended by a large number of cadets-and one "Tac !" The last day of our sojourn was Georgia Day, and the President favored us with his presence. The Middies like- wise appeared upon the scene, and were paraded and marched around the Exposition grounds all morning. In the evening occurred a farewell ball and the naval illumina- tion in the harbor. That night several midshipmen were drowned in the Roads during a severe storm. The news of their death was received with sincere regret throughout the Corps. - On the morning of June Ilth we marched away from our week's camping ground. The Governor of Virginia kindly requested us to prolong our stay, but we really felt we couldn't. So when noon came we had left Jamestown far behind and were on our homeward voyage. The return trip was like the initial one-only worse. However, with a few exceptions, we were all able to look happy when the "Sumner" pushed its way through the break in the Highlands and old Wfest Point came into view again. And so with light hearts Cfor who can help being cheerful when graduation is only two days off?j we came back to our own, and the visit of the Corps to the Jamestown Expo- sition passed into the annals of history.

' 263 , . gg A J is the unwritten law at West Point that each '51 summer must Witness a Practice March. On 255.756 the eighteenth of August, nineteen hundred and seven, the Corps of Cadets and the Eighth Mas- sachusetts Militia vvere amalgamated into an armed gfmass, after the fashion of the army of that notorious Coxey. ' MOUNTAIN GUN IN AcT1oN "Arrangements for a practice march should conform to the conditions it is intended to simulatem On this account 'Field Service Regulations, 1905. A DECISIVE ATTACK the forces had hardly been formed on the "meridian of 1 West Point' 2 when an enfilading fire was opened by the feminine batteries scattered ad Iibidmem over the parade grounds and its vicinity. Every man became instantly aware of this fire. But here the actual simulation ceased. The fire was received with the utmost "sang froid."3 "A combat will be either offensive or defensive."4 In this instance it 2General Orders No. X, VV. P.. N. Y. 3 From the French. 4 Field Service Regulations, 1905. was neither, but more like a Presidential campaign. How- ever, some heroes eventually did the resurrection stunt, and full many a reckless cadet was seen literally to snatch a quo- tation from the cannon's mouth. "Familiarity with difficulties of all kinds" 1 is aimed at on the march. Consequently the crossing, by ferry, of the Hudson River was made in as tedious a manner as was con- sistent with a safe expenditure of time. It can be comfort- ably assumed that had the illustrious joshua, who, we glean from Biblical lore, was a militia officer of distinguished ability and a tactician of dangerous repute, been present to hold the sun in checkg had this powerful gentleman from the antipodes of history been on hand in full regimentals to exercise again his hypnotic influence over old Sol-the corps of cadets would still be crossing the Hudson. Cn the opposite side of the river the force separated itself into the two parties-called "belligerents" 2-"for the partic- ular war of the day. In order to make the problems more simple they will be known as the Black and Blue Forces. The Black Force moves ahead and takes up a defensive position-unknown, of course, to the Blue Force. The latter moves forward, ,after a lapse of some time, in what is sup- posed to be the general direction of the enemy. On this occasion a regular Napoleonic instinct is displayed by the leader of the Blue Force. He sends forward an advance guard "to cover his movements, to prevent surprise, and to gain information." 4 The guard is ordered to stop the ad- vance at a well-selected point, with a view to the adoption iF.

By a singular coin- cidence the enemy, or the Black Force, considered the same terrain so adaptable that they have securely covered them- selves in an adjacent cornfield. Everyone being by this time thoroughly Hagogf' it is deemed proper to begin the game. "The Preparatory Stage is appropriately opened by an artillery duel."1 A rain of shrapnel is showered on the advancing Blue infantry, but the Blue ranks trudge ahead with dogged perseverance and undiminished numbers. A small detachment of Blue cavalry now appears on the road moving rapidly around the left of the Black artillery posi- tion. The Massachusetts militia constituting the support of the Black artillery deliver an annihilating but ineffective fire on the advancing column of troopers. The troopers, with a bravado that has ever been consigned to Don Quixote, seem intent upon making a headlong charge. They are deterred from violating in so flagrant a manner all modern opinions of cavalry warfare by the intervention of a high stone wall between the road and the field. And without intermission, the Black artillery plays as steady a 'fTe Deum" 2 as ever a field organ could intone. By this time, the mountain guns of the Blue Force ap- proach in as quick a manner as is commendable with the roads of the countryf They are brought into action behind the wall, and reply saucily to the Black artillery. Black patrols now report the deployment of Blue infantry on the right of the Black position. The Blue infantry in front advances surreptitiously. The Blue cavalry on the left has dismounted and crawled over the wall. The mountain guns 1 VVagner. 2 Page 7 of the Prayer Book. 3 Food for "Good Roads Conventionsf are driving back Black outposts, and now and then are re- torting civilly to the Black artillery. And without interg mission the Black artillery plays as steady a f'Te Deum" as ever a Held organ could intone. , , The sun grows hotter. The forces get nearer. If a Spanish senorita were seatedon a Black artillery cannon, her dark-skinned sweetheart might waft kisses to her on his cigarette rings from the Blue trenches, and she might-draw them to her lips before the air parted them, so close were the forces. At once, by mutual consent, the forces ceased firing, for a party of umpires appeared on the sky-line. The decision was given after a careful review of the forces and the ter- rain. The Black position had been taken by the aggressive deployment and advance of the Blue Force. And without intermission the Black artillery had played as steady a "Te Deum" as ever field organ intoned. A dusty, grimy cavalcade, they marched over the dusty, grimy roads into a hot camp-the Black and Blue Forces. In the afternoon, such of the camp as had not been on the map detail were permitted the leisure of the fields. On one or two occasions swimming pools were found. Under the dark shade in the cool water, real sport was found. After- wards came that gratifying feeling of cleanliness which a football philosopher of elegance declared to be the chief' incentive for getting thoroughly mud-caked. The unfortunate reconnaissance detail spent the after- noon "blue-printing" their work of the morning. jThis con- sisted in taking the maps they had made and reproducing their likeness on blue paper. COOL-WATER DEEP ' A SUBSISTENCE. DEPARTMENT The most agreeable meal of the day-supper-always found a full quota present. The entire force, seated on corn-stumps, with tin cup and plate, knife, fork, and spoon, sounded a melodious dinner call,,which was quickly followed by a ravenous demolition of the provisions. After supper came the panoramic lecture. The engineer department furnished a large map of the country, which was nightly thrown on a large screen. With this as aback- ground, the star-set heavens as a canopy, the Commandant of Cadets and the rest of the multitude as an audience, the real battle of the day was hotly contested-umpire against umpire, commander against commander, Engineer Depart- ment against stereopticon, cadet against sleep, the Command- 1After an old proverb. 2 Shakespeare's Sonnets. ant of Cadets against all. Many, indeed, were the tussles with flesh and spirit. When finally all defects had been gath- ered together and driven in the center of the ring of hearers like a herd of frightened animals, the Com would rise with the dignity of a toreador, and with the caustic remark, L'On the whole, the problem was unsatisfactoryf, stampede animals, men, and all into the darkness of the night. So the battle was fought. Truly the "word is mightier than the sword."' 'tFull many a glorious morning have I seen," said Bill Shakespeare on one occasionf Bill was right. But he had never been on a practice march. Bill never went to bed on the side of a hill under the cover of a dog-tent, with a poncho under him and a single blanket over him, only to wake in the morning at a considerable distance further down the hill, with jewelets of a thousand dewdrops glistening on his frozen body. It is believed that on this occasion Bill would have been too thoroughly chilled to watch the morn- ing Uflatter with sovereign top the mountain green," 3 Each day and each night followed practically the same routine, though, of course, there were many amusing inci- dents that continually arose, to the edincation of the disin- terested. Gn one occasion, Higley with three troopers at- tempted to capture a battery of artillery supported by half a company of infantry. Higley argued chiefly on account of his excellent tactics in getting round the enemy and coming up behind him. It must be admitted that though the meeting was somewhat of an accident, it was tactics. And after all, "not many officers have to exercise strategy, but it is with tactics that most of us have to deal." ' Again, a battery of 5 Ibid.

Once Woodbtiry was seen running behind an artillery piece during an entire problem, like an "ignorant lout" instead of riding on the carriage seat with the other cannoneers. jimmy Lyon attempted the donbtfnl task of riding one mule and leading another, to the utter de- moralization of the camp. Like a peaceable party they left campg but somewhere they had a disagreement, for the mules and Jimmy returned to camp separately. Then "Shoe" Bouton was detailed for cavalry one day, and-but it is the same trite story: "If all of us knew what all of us do, , And all of us knew that all of us knew, , Why all of us might refrain from a few Of some of the things that all of us do." , A RECONNAISSANCE Do EI DD... The VVest Point delegation to the Y. M. C. A. Conference at Northfield, consisting of Atlcisson, Cunningham, Garri- son, Hall, H. W., Putney, Schulz and Terry, of the First Classg and Davies, Gray, F. B., Holmes, Lewis, B. O. and Miles, of the Third Class, left VVest Point on the morning of june 29, IQO7, for Northheld. It was a good day's jour- ney, the last two miles of which we rode in a stage, and im- proved our time by practicing "Army Blue" and "Benny Havensf, At about 5.30 P. M. we arrived at Marquand Hall, where we were to live during the Conference. Ban- ners hung from every window, and everything reminded one of a college commencement. Greetings and evidences of good fellowship were showered upon us from all sides. No sooner had we appeared at the door of the dining room than the air was rent with college yells. To all of these we re- plied. Finally some WVilliams fellows shouted, "We Want fArmy Blue,' U and we did our best. During our second day at the Conference, Lieut. Fenton, McLachlan, Potter and McNabb joined us. For three days we had three lVliddies-Burdick, Boyd and Charleton-with usf They ate with us, slept with us, and helped us play ball. XVe attended all of the meetings of the Conference and gained much good from them. They were full of enthu- siasm. There was no appealing to the passions of the hear- ers 5 but every sentence went home, like a blow straight from the shoulder. Anyone who has ever heard Dr. Fosdick, Mr. Mott, Mr. Millar, Mr. Bates or Mr. Spear will at once under- stand the kind of sermons to which we listened. Probably the most impressive meetings were those held outdoors on Round Top. There on the gentle slope, facing the setting sun, in sight of the Connecticut fiowing peacefully by, and amidst the peculiar stillness that marks the changing of day into night, one seemed to be nearer than usual to God. The afternoons we spent either in roaming over the coun- try or in some form of athletics. Our one baseball game was with Mt. Hermon. As this place is about five miles from Northfield, We made the trip in a tally-ho coach. In spite of the fact that we lost the game, we had a royal time. The glorious Fourth was well celebrated. During the day there was a field meet, but the great celebration took place in the evening. The auditorium was beautifully deco- rated with college banners and fiags. One hundred and thirty-nine schools and colleges were represented. Each delegation gave its cheer and those of the colleges gave their songs also. After We had given a 'fLong Corps Yell" and sung "Army Blue," Mr. Mott, the President of the Confer- ence, arose and said: "Let us all rise and give three cheers for West Point. They represent the country." On emerging from the Auditorium our eyes met the sight of a huge bonfire, the liames rising to a height of over two hundred feet. It was a magnificent spectacle and a fitting close to the brilliant d-ay. ' On Monday, july 8, after ten days of great profit and en- joyment, we returned to VVest Point and Camp Michie. 271 ' t WEST POINT, N..Y., August 18, IQO7.

The trip was fraught with many interesting incidents. Item-VV e had Honest John, Swish and some "oi polloi" with us. The tug, General'-Toseph E. Johnston, was boarded at the midinstant between midnight and sunrise on August II, 1907. The characteristics of a commonplace August day awaited us: The same sun in the same place at the same time as on the previous day. The same water adjacent to New York, with the same sweetly seductive way of enticing overboard the most respectable part of a mess-hall breakfast. The same old refrain from Jimmie james as he leaned over the port rail-"Seems though everything I eat tries to put out to sea." The same aged capons for dinner. The same "skinab1e" habit of smoking "skags" brought the same sub- sequent "skins" Candidly, 'you whom it may concern, it would have been a most ordinary day were it not for one momentous fact: 1 Item-Tibby was aboard. About six-thirty in the evening, a thick fog began to envelop the good ship. As the "Generall' pursued its course the fog grew so dense that Baldy I-lartman's head, which had been serving the purpose of a convex reflector, became so dense that holding the hand at arm's length it was impos- sible to distinguish by Maxvvell's rule the direction of the magnetic flux-the other two fingers being given. F ar in the distance a lighthouse bell was tolling. Oh, how persistently funereal! Imagine, you Whom it may concern, J w DINNER slightly tarnished.

It is eminently human that the cadet should believe his body to be divided between Scylla and Charybdis, and dying without testament to have sirens squabbling for his shrivelled soul which he had so wantonly bargained for a pair of Sergeant's chevrons had come in pursuit of him with a writ of replevin g "Pa" VVat whispered in awe-struck tones that 'lit were Vooda, and there were no question about that."

M TARGET GOING OUT bell buttons, sea-urchins for his body, and sharks for his equipment fund. It was at this intense moment that an apparition entered. Cn the starboard side of the pilot-house a figure was dimly outlined in the "foggy, foggy dew." Bobby OiBrien ner- vously clutched at the vacant air in the firm belief that the RAMMING would have a chance to don a dress coat. But to the bolder cadet the figure with its curving legs, its wagging ears, its familiar attitude, "As who should say I am Sir Oracle, and when I ope my lips Let no dog bark," was strikingly real and human. The lips open and the oracle speaks in a timid, lisping voice: "There will be no talking on board. Cadet Captains will report all cadets whom they see grinning. This is a nautical who, after the manner of a forward child, thus apostrophizes the vanishing vision: Tm glad our Tibbyfs not real fat- I love them slim and agile 5 order." 1 W But we must treat ours carefully, Not to laugh!

Captain of ship follows -inn rear with injured look-like "Pinky" Cotton when informed that one of his elaborate dis- 5 .lj . - H FIFTEEN-POUNDER J! cussions in Chem is "all wrong." Peterson calls roll of "B Company. Life-preservers mildewed and moth-eaten are drawn forth. Advice given by Cadet Hartman rejected by "Swish" on the grounds of incompetency. "Swish', squelches Cadet Hartman by hypothetical question, "Do you think I would speak to a cadet private when a cadet captain is present P" "B" Company, under the supervision of its tac- tical officer, is filled with life-preservers. Peterson calls roll of "BH Company. Life-boats lowered. Dr. Holden lights cigar. "Swish" orders each cadet to take two life-preserv- ers, "one for himself, the other for Dr. Holden." Is idea entertained of making small-sized raft for the learned libra- rian? All laugh-laugh-laugh. Caricature too clever for THE MINES imitation-must be "dementia Americana!" Peterson calls roll of "B" Company. Such are the facts. An issue had almost been reached when a small skiff appeared alongside the General Johnston. A man came aboard and enlightened the poor, benighted cap- tain with data as to the latitude and longitude of the place. Dr. Holden proclaimed a miracle and the appearance of the skiff a "sign from Heaven." ' The old "General" was easily backed off the rocks and steamed quietly into the harbor of Fisher's Island, five hundred yards distant. ' We marched through the wet night into a camp that was even more wet. An incandescent lamp in the center of the camp attracted us as the door lamp of a country store 'draws mosquitoes. Like those foolish insects we beat against each other to get near the light and recover our baggage from the generous pile on the ground. Friend mauled friend. Brother buffeted brother. The confusion was not subdued until "Loosely', Hall, having been rebuked by "Swish" for dis- playing "gross intelligence," was brought forth from the multitude. In the morning reveille was sounded on the bugle. It was very beautiful, but there was no last roll, and on this account the whole of "F" Company got an absence. - A day at Fort Vlfright was much like a club sandwich. After reveille came breakfast-the lower crust. "Swish" gave a brief talk-the sauce. Drill followed-the filling. Dinner and more sauce. Drill and supper-the meat. Another pinch of sauce. Lastly taps-the upper crust. The last two days were taken up with target practice. A creditable showing was made at all the guns. Captain Swish gave it as his opinion "that there was but one missfat the eight-inch gun, I think it was the third shot-at least it was between the second and fourth." A trip by the squad was made every night to Fort Terry across the Race. Wlieii the boat did not get lost on the return, the squad reached camp by I A. M. There 'were sev- eral hops, which everyone enjoyed. Many shining stars appeared, but the Society Notes mentioned most frequently "Liquid Eyed Shiverickf' In the mornings there was bath- ing in the salt water, and in the evening in the other water at the Mansion House. Colonel Parkhurst was thoroughly hospitable, the officers friendly and the enlisted men eager to please. Altogether it was a most interesting trip. Nothing unusual happened on the way home. We couldn't get lost in the Hudson. There was nothing-but wait, you whom it may concern, "here's matter for a May morningf! "Kartouche" Nulsen was discovered seated on the lower deck writing on a scrap of brown paper with a piece of sharpened coal this story or an older story, to you whom it may concern or to someone else. I " N spite of the fact that our lives are daily placed in danger by Shiverick's bucking broncho, there are few of us who do not enjoy the good old horses in the riding hall. Hence it was that the 23d of November found us most impatient to depart for the Annual Horse Show at Madison Square Garden. To the President and Board of Governors we were indebted for a most enjoyable evening. The Presi- dent, Mr. Felloes, whose guests we were at dinner, was most hospitable, and throughout the whole evening he left noth- ing undone that would add to our pleasure. 'When dinner was over we went to the promenade, where we whiled the time away until the Show began. Nearby were the gay boxes of New York's Four Hundred, and it was to these that some of our HP. S." friends devoted their entire time, with the result that men like VVatson, with a knowing look, could point out the real rulers of our social world. At eight-fifteen we were all seated in our boxes, and then amid a crash of music entered the first pair, they were beau- tiful and high-spirited, and our hitherto passing interest soon grew to great admiration for the noble steeds in the arena. One pair after another pranced out in fine style. Lively discussions soon arose among us as to which should have the highly prized blue ribbon. Many, like Nulsen, saw only beauty and perfection in the pair driven by a lady. So it was from beginning to end-each pair had its loyal sup- porters, but all agreed that the judges had a very difficult task. Soon the Show came to a close, and we returned to our trains, each of us with a greater interest in horses and memo- ries of a delightful evening which will ever remain with us.

On the Hudson, far below, each ripple is kissed by a silvery moonbeamg' and faintly from the hall abovelloats the music of a dreamy waltz. In a secluded corner sits our yearling, a helpless captive, boundowith the silken cords spun 'by Cupid and tied in knots of love. Tenderly he gazes into the mystic depths of those soft, melting eyes which look so appealingly into his, and in a state of heavenly rapture -pours forth the sentiments of his heart in a stream of poetic eloquence: "When Peggy's arms her dog imprison, I How much lwish my fate was his'n! And often I would stop and turn To get a pat from hands like her'n." f Now Cupid's wounds, though often deep, are quick to heal, and likewise the sparks which love has kindled in our yearlrngs breast are soon dimmed by the blaze of glory which heralds the coming of Furlough.

In no case will opposing forces fire until they can see the whites of the enemy's eyes Cand not then unless an umpire be present-plebes exceptedj. Persons captured will join the capturing force, change their distinguishing badge and act as a part of such force Cin order to simulate Service conditionsj. Any cadet who fmds himself surrounded by the oppos- ing force, and within thirty yards of said force, shall con- sider himself a prisoner Cunless, of course, he can escapej. Any cadet who strikes, shoots, stabs, or otherwise rudely treats one of the opposing force will be given a five and ten. And any cadet who shall Hlch an apple, pear, peach, prune, or lemont shall be dismissed the service or otherwise less severely punished, as a court-martial may direct. The belligerent parties will be known as the Black and Blue Forces, respectively. They will wear characteristic badges, to be able to distinguish themselves from one another. GENERAL IDEA. A Blue Force Cimaginaryj is moving along a road Cimaginaryj leading from bad to worse and from worse to West Point Crealj. It is followed by a Black brigade Cimaginaryj which desires to overtake the Blues before they reach their destination Cimaginaryj. The Blue rear-guard is snugly ensconced on a high knoll-preferably "Fort Put." A Black detached force, in flagrant violation of the rules of war etiquette, has waded across the Hudson River, without any advance t Lemons will be served by the proper authorities at the conclu- sion of the problem. guard. This Black Force is seen and fired upon by the Blue Artillery Chowever, the Blue guns need not actually fire, as their position might be disclosed by so doingj. The Blues send for relief by wireless. SPECIAL IDEA-BLACKS. Demoralization, disintegration and destruction of Blues before the relief is marched around. It is learned that the Blues are in position near Fort Put. SPECIAL IDEA-BLUES. To hold position, and thus check the enemy until the main body can escape. It is learned that the Blacks are in the nearest apple orchard. CT his makes the Blues envious, and despite the smallness of their numbers they wish to advance on the Black position. Failing in this, they are willing-nay, even anxious-to be captured, in order that, like true sons of Adam Calso Evej, they may share in the applesj HEADQUARTERS BLUES, FIELD ORDERS No. 23. In field near Ft. Put, IOtl1-Tllly, 1907, I0 A. M. The position and strength of our forces have already been stated. Of course, nothing new is known about the enemy. The Blue Infantry, consisting of many men, almost as many rifles, and a much greater number of blank car- tridges, will support the Artillery Cimaginaryj and hold all the woods in sight. The Cavalry, remembering that they are the eyes, ears, nose, and throat, as well as most of the cheek of the army, and that they are to obtain information and not to fight, will move at a walk between Fort Put and the Hudson River. They will obtain and immediately transmit timely and accurate information as to the number of privates, corporals, sergeants, lieutenants, captains, majors, lieu- tenant-colonels, colonels, brigadier-generals, major-generals, lieutenant-generals and generals of the opposing forces, their positions Csocial and otherwisej, intentions, pulse, tem- perature, appetite, complexion, disposition, P. C. S., and attitude towards the pay-bill. This information will be sent to the Commander of the Blues, who will be found somewhere between Haverstraw and Cornwall. Keeping in mind that they are to obtain information and not to fight, they will rout the hostile Infantry, disor- ganize the Cavalry, capture the Artillery and leave the Engineers alone? Said Cavalry will be careful not to become seriously engaged. The following instructions will be adhered to by the Artillery: Don't fire. It would disclose your position. "Silence is golden," and, anyway, Artillery never gets any credit in tactical problems. For further information, see textg or, if text is not handy, consult Gottschalk, Chaney or Deans. By order of A. TAC, Commanding Blues. A. CADET, Adjuiamf. HEADQUARTERS BLACKS FIELD ORDERs No. 13. In Fruit Orchard, roth july, 1907, I0 A. M. The enemy are worse off than we are. They have more shade and may be cooler, but there are no fruit trees on Fort Put. The Infantry had better stop stealing those apples. it His Engineers will do the 'enemy more harm than we can do him. They will be skinned if they don't. After waiting an hour, the Infantry will double-time Cso as to make up for lost timej and push rapidly forward without deploying for any reason whatsoever, being careful not to be taken by surprise or fired on while in column. The conduct of the imaginary Cavalry is left entirely to the imagination of its imaginary commander. ' The Artillery will block the roads and get in the way at every opportunity. I say this from experience, and not because I want them to do it. ' All forces are instructed to rush forward under any kind of fire-the hotter and heavier the better-as this has always been done by the attacking party, and it would be a shame to break up an old Corps custom. By order of ANOTHER TAC, Commanding Blacks. ANOTHER CADET, Adjutant. REMARKS BY UMPIRES. ' CHIEF UMPIRE-"On the whole, the problem worked out very satisfactorily, ,showing great improvement, etc. "The Infantry on both sides was handled well. The Blue Cavalry was handled very poorly, being far out- classed by the Black Cavalry." CHe must have' forgotten that the Black Cavalry was imaginaryl . UMPIRE FOR BLUES-f'The Infantry on both sides was handled very poorly, showing no improvement, etc." UMPIRE FOR BLAcKs+"The work of the Infantry was satisfactory except that they advanced too rapidly and exposed themselves, etc. "The Blue Cavalry did excellent work, but failed to report that the commander of the Black Infantry was mounted on Lindsay.

CAPTAIN DARRAH-AHY questions on to-day's lesson? CADET Moss-I do not understand paragraphs 131, I32, 133, on page ISI, sir. CAPTAIN D.-That was in yesterday's lesson, Mr. Moss. Mr. Stokely, are you boning your lesson? A STOKELY-YES, sir. CAPTAIN D.-Wake up and pay attention to the ques- tions. I do not intend to caution this section again on that point. Don't tilt back your chair again, Mr. Morrow: this is not a popular New York cafe, fHur1iedly,D There seem to be no questions. Take your places at the board! All members take their positions leisurely and prepare to bugle for an hour. CAPTAIN D.-I wish to speak to the section about the treatment of those specimens in the trays. Mr. Bowen, of last year's class, bit a large piece out of a Valuable Indian tomahawk trying to ascertain whether or not it was rock- salt. I do not want a thing like that repeated. Mr. Van Deusen, I will hear you now. KAYDET VAN-I am required to discuss glycerine, sir. Glycerine is used by the ladies in washing their hands, and is obtained from turpentine. CAPTAIN D.-Is that all you know about this subject, Mr. Van Deusen? How long did you study your lesson? KAYDET VAN-I started studying at call to quarters, last night, and would have studied until morning, but was interrupted and rolled in the snow by some cadets about 2 A. M. CKaydets Hungry, Mc, Ike, and Tony look wise and say nothingj CAPTAIN D.-Very well. Mr. Van Deusen, with a little extra application you may reach the first section yet. I will hear you now, Mr. Reed. CThe section comes to life.j KAYDET REED-Ah am required to discuss coal-gas, gold, soapstone, etc. Well-uh-uh. Coal-gas is manufac- tured in Highland Falls. , CAPTAIN D.-I suppose you mean Niagara Falls, Mr. Reed? KAYDET REED-Uh-uh! yes, sirg Niagara Falls, sir. Gold is a very precious gem. It is found at the bottom of the sea. CThe "bunch" laugh by volley.j CAPTAIN D.-Mr. McGee, you have no reason to laugh. I gave you five-tenths on your recitation yesterday out of pure charity. I will ask you some questions, Mr. Reed. What is soapstone used for? KAYDET REED-It is used in making bath-tubs, sir. Why, Mr. Reed! KAYDET REED-SO that you do not have to use any soap. CAPTAIN D.

A native of the Blue Grass? No. Of the rolling prairies? God forbid! No, I do not come of the proud and haughty Kentucky stock, and that my ancestors were ever so undignified as to engage in the reprehensible habit of bucking the festive cow-puncher into the middle distance is unbelievable. My origin is lost in the mists of the ages, but to the best of my rapidly failing memory,and from all external appearances, my mother was a poor but honest old dray-horse of uncertain lineage. My early recollections are growing dim, but I seem to remember being led away from the parental stall, when a frolicksoine three- year-old, by a young captain who signed my descriptive list "VVin- field Scott." I gathered from his conversation that I was to be taken to West Point, of which I had often heard, there to instruct the cadets in the gentle art of standing on their heads on the tips of my ears. Since then my life has been a useful one, and I have seen many famous men come and go. I remember, some time after my instal- lation as an instructor and before I rose to the dignity of a pro- fessor CI never could keep track of the yearsj, a stubby little runt of a yearling, who said his name was "Mr. Grant, sir." When asked by "Methuse" what horse he was riding-riding, mind you !-he answered, "Mr. Lindsay, sir!" I immediately took a fancy to him, for in spite of my years and my dignity they very seldom put the handle to my name. It was thoughtful of him. I patiently allowed him to skin up my forelegs in order to reach the required position on my back, though I must say it got rather tiresome by the time he had done it ten or twelve times during the hour, on ac- count of his making sudden descents to search for something in the tan-bark. I piloted him safely through three years of riding and- perhaps you won 't believe it-it was I who made thefamous high jump at his graduation ride that broke all West Point records. I think that jump must have made him famous, for I often hear him spoken ofg and a few days ago-or perhaps it was a fewyears-they named a horse after him. I still insist, and I will to my dying day, that I was with it "Sheridan, twenty miles away," 5' ,M y though they all tell me it was ,wfffi impossible. But I have ,xx I E E: been twenty miles from ' , Q," i West Point.

Hd , - X' - I ' Perhapszl could remem- ber more of them if only I had written this eight years ago, when I started tog but then Corky came back as a Tac, and fell on my neck and wept, and promptly claimed me lor his own. His everlasting double- time doughboy drills so wore on my nerves that I couldn't sleep at night, let alone write my reminiscences. But the crowning insult has been reserved for my old age: It's that Loosely Hall. He thinks he knows more than I do - think of it! If he didn't graduate so soon I'm sure I'd reach my ignominious end in Mess Hall slum fully ten years before my time, and that hasn't come yet by a good deal. I can still get over a hurdle a lot better than some of those brash young horses that haven't been here more than twenty years. I often si gh for the good old bygone days-those days when the walls of the Riding Hall were not defaced by signs of TURN HERE, and cadets were not always swearing about being skinned for "not carrying feet properly. " It was not like this in the olden days, "When Methuse to the yearlings whispered: At a walk, at a walk, at a walk," AIDS TO GREATNESS 5 'ma 1 O V F 00015 S bmi .

The difference between shot and shell is that one bursts before "Colonel, I would like to know where the meridian of West the gun, and the other bursts behind the gun. Point is, sir." ' ' 3I9 THE SPIRIT OF OLD WEST POINT The sentinel at the guard tent was wearilylwalking his post, almost exhausted by the numerous salutes which he had been turning out for Colonel Chaney. He was on the point of offering up a silent prayer of thanks to the Com- mandant for not having placed Pa Watson among those to be saluted, when down came his gun to "present arms" for an equally notorious manipulator of "sweet nothings" -Simon Bolivar Buckner. With a springy step, a tight dress-coat, and with a twinkle of assurance in his eye, this breaker of hearts made straight for the hotel, that goal of every spoonoid. A wave of his hand, the rustle of a skirt, the click of a pink parasol, and he and the charming little fairy were off for Flirtation. p It was her first visit to West Point. He swore man- fully that if it were her last, the entire Corps would go into mourning at once. She accused him of being a jollier. Promptly he vowed to her that it was the divine inspiration of her fair presence that evoked his words. She laugh- ingly called him a butteriiy-he was as ready with an excuse as that famous negro in whose hat a stolen chicken was found, and who' confidently asserted that it must have crawled up his trousers leg. She wondered what his chev- rons were-he did not lose a moment in telling her that a number of cadets had been sent to the Peace Conference, and that the chevrons had been presented to them by the Czar of Russia as mementos of the occasion. Their conversation drifted on as they strolled along the shaded paths which led them farther and farther into the green-canopied realms of Cupid. On they went, past Kissing Rock, where Bunny Goethals had often blushed like a primrose in the ruddy glare of the setting sung near a moss-grown boulder, where Stub Baird had acquired his matrimonial aspirations, through a vine-entangled bower, where Peterson had spluttered through his seventeenth proposal g and over a fern-covered bank, where, all unsus- pected, Jimmy James had poured forth many a stream of sentimental eloquence. At last they reached a spot, near the water's edge, where a moss-covered rock, a trailing vine, a bed of ferns, and a cluster of wild flowers all combined to make the cosiest little nook on all Flirtation. Here she sat beside him, a dimple of merriment in her rosy cheek and a dazzling sparkle in her bewitching eye. In her delicate little hand she ,held a wild flower, which she playfully touched to her lips'-how he longed to be that Bower! As she turned her beaming eyes upon him, it sent a thrill through his whole body, and the ring of self-assurance in his voice seemed gradually to melt away into a low and earnest tone. When she spoke, it seemed to him that when compared with those dulcet notes, the gentle cooing of a dove would be as the hoarse cawing of a crow. Her tiny hand, as if by accident, found a place on the rock not for from his. His heart beat hard and fast when, at last, his eager gaze was met by a tender, appealing look from the depths of those soft blue eyes so near to his. There was a whisper, a slight rustle, a silence-and first call for parade. A fx Y . M ' 335 W E 2 .. . ...M--4-V. - " ,f,:'vfM7'v"-f ' " - W! fy '!i""if5:,-. ff:-Z' '7 . - 4.mL1 A- 411 27.
