Into a Kind Storm-wrought, .1 place of quakes, all thunder scarred, helpless, degraded, desolate, peace, the Cflhitc Angel, comes. And, in her influence, hope returns, and life, And the passion of endeavor: so that, soon, Che idle ports arc insolent with heels, Che stithies roar, and the mills thrum CCIith energy and achievement; In a golden fog, A large, full-stomached faith in kindliness All over the world, the nation, in a dream. Of money, and love, and sport. Goes fattening, mellowing, dozing, rotting down Into a rich deliquium of decay. Chen, if the Gods be good, Down from their footstools, down, iHith a million-throated shouting, swoops and storms SQar, the Red Angel, the Awakener, Che Shaker of Souls and Chrones; and at her heel Crail grief, and ruin, and shame ! In wild hours, A people, haggard with defeat, Asks if there be a God; yet sets its teeth, faces calamity, and goes into the fire Another than it was. And in wild hours A people roaring ripe with victory, Sheds its old peddling aims, Approves its virtue, puts behind itself Che comfortable dream, and goes, Armored and militant, New-pithed, new-soulcd, new-visioned, up the steeps Co those great altitudes, whereat the weak, Live not. But only the strong have leave to strive, and suffer, and achieve. — Henley.OME time we shall come back to see the completed “New West Point” in all its grandeur;—but then it will be as members of the “good old class of nineteen-nine.” And we feel sure that we shall find the same old West Point at heart within the “more stately mansions” that are being erected. General Morris Schaff says in a letter written recently to the “Howitzer”: “Do not dream for a moment that I think the spirit of the New West Point differs at all from the old—Honor, Good Manners, the Gentleman, and all the refining qualities which live through the spiritual agencies of the little chapel they may tear it down or put it where they please— will not depart from the corps in your day or mine. They will not leave the consecrated spot until its graduates begin to turn into scheming place hunters in their country’s service, reaching for this or that promotion or station by fawning on all the powers over them: then the new will differ from the old and not until then.” — 13 —  " WITH RfcTINVE Of rAANY A KNIGHT AND 5Q |£5 SUPERINTENDENT COLONEL IIl!GM I..

There may he some who believe it more sinned against than sinning, hut these have seldom possessed the temerity to voice their protest in the frequent meetings of the wieldcrs of the sledge. Hut though the efficiency of these architects of our fate is so frequently called into question, none can deny the diversity of their activities or the reality of their omnipotence. They inquire into and interfere with the peaceful progress of our daily lives with a thoroughness and an attention to detail that inclines us toward a belief that the hairs of our heads must he numbered. From prescribing the character of our handwriting to compelling our use of white shirts- nothing escapes their careful surveillance. And as to their omnipotence, could this he better shown than by the instructions of the Com. to the effect that “the guard will he relieved at sunrise. The sun will rise at 4.80:” or the order that Patton so unhlushinglv published, “No matches will he left in the pockets of clothing sent to the laundry as they may take fire by order of Lieut.-Col. Howze?” Beside such powers ms these the medieval magic of one old scout, Joshua, in making the sun stand still, sinks to insignificance. As plchcs we shivered fearfully over allusions to dark prisons, lig! t prisons, and other methods for the punishment of wrong-doers, hut none of us have ever been called upon to brave the terrors of these ordeals. But one relic of the Inquisition still holds sway—the area. Those ingenious Spaniards who plied their trade with thumb-screws and the rack never devised torture as exquisite as is the lot of the miscreants who pack gravel in the area—“sentinels without a charge”- during a big football game. Lastly, it. is the Tactical Department whom we must thank for the compilation of our Vade Mccum—the Blue Hook which defines so succinctly the metes and hounds of the straight and narrow path that leads to Christmas leaves and the decorations of quilldom. Our venerable ancestors who drafted the Constitution on which our fatherland is run could not compose a document one-tenth the length of the set of rules and regulations that prevents the Corps of Cadets from going to the delimit ion how-wows. — 17 —tVfcfcY BRIDGE THAT HE MKES fjTHER BVCKLE3 OR BREAKS.” Department of Civil and Military Engineering PROFESSOR Coloxki.

Military Academy, who arc being fitted for a profession in which the principles of civil engineering are of daily application." K Gods! wlint a prospect. If this be true, graduation will bring no relief and we are destined to grow gray while groping our way through an interminable maze of strains, stresses, moments, and shears with no other guide to our faltering footsteps than the inevitable Cambria handbook. Must we believe that a second lieutenant of the white stripe variety is supposed to hold himself in constant readiness to build anything from a chicken coop to a skyscraper upon demand? It is a most appalling prospect. The path of the faithful few who hold up the bottom of the class is seldom strewn with roses but here they encounter an additional impediment to their peaceful progress in the shape of an increment of five tenths on the mark required for proficiency, increasing it to the formidable proportions of 2.5. The expedients adopted to escape this stumbling block have varied from attempts to speck, entire, the tables in the Cambria, to making frequent trips Vassal-ward to get a physical conception of the Poughkeepsie Bridge (one goat's explanation of his monthly wanderings in that direction). A watchful Kate has decreed, however, that all knowledge shall not be gleaned from books by the creation of the practical (as opposed to the impractical?) Military Knginccring Course. Caesar bridged the Rhine, so history tells us, but in all chronicles of his campaigns we find nothing « worthy of commemoration in song and story as the feat of crossing the Hudson on raft composed of empty beer kegs. As instruction progresses, little outings are planned, and the surrounding landscape is sketched and mapped with varying degrees of accuracy. 'Phis work results in a familiarity with clinometers, pedometers, hexameters, gas-meters, and the staple locally known as a P. M. K. lunch. In the last case, familiarity breeds contempt, and usually, indigestion, for this delicacy is an appetizing concoction, manufactured of most durable materials—one orange, two bard boiled eggs, one' bologna sandwich, one mutton sandwich impregnable alike to digestive juices, teeth, axe or dynamite. — 19 Captain Daniel G.

SS 1ST A N T PRO F ESSO R v KOOME fcfc FELT THE M ALTER 0R y GOOD OPINION Of THE LAW." Department of Law PROFESSOR — 20 —T seems somewhat in the nature of inconsistency to teach a cadet the Law after three years of buffeting against the rigorous restrictions that hem him in on every side, for if there he any truth in the statement that experience is the best teacher, he will he learned Ix'yond description. Perhaps the reason for this plan may be found in a belief on the part of the Right Honorable Tactical Department that “a little learning is a dangerous thing” and a wholesome fear of any knowledge among the proletariat concerning tile existence of inalienable rights of mankind. Rut such a fear would seem to he ungrounded, for in the profound philosophy of the Law the benefit of its wisdom seems to apply to all hut “army officers, women, criminals, and lunatics.” Although humor has never been regarded as a distinguishing characteristic of the exponents of Blackstone, our experiences in the section room have not been without their ridiculous side. The grinds that relate to the “sub-peona duces tecum” are legion and date from the time when the Cave Man first laid aside his big stick and began to use this more refined weapon for protection against his adversaries. Perhaps, also, history repeats itself in the translation of “habeas corpus” “that you have the corpse”—or the definition of an alibi as “the annual allowance of a grass widow.” Law is essentially a thing of beauty and a joy forever to the facile speckoid. It was said of no less a person than Macaulay that, had the original of “Paradise Lost” been really lost, he could have reproduced it verbatim from memory. Rut who can picture the honors that the future has in store for the erstwhile member of the first section who, when the Ship of State runs on a rock, can proudly take his post on the poop deck (if that he the correct nautical term) and smoothly sound oft our venerated Constitution in the identical form given it by our respected forefathers? Ami in this connection, just one suggestion made with due respect toward the dignity of the Law. If ever the time should come for the revision of that grand old document, the Constitution, we would suggest that it he embodied in verse. 'Pile present form is sadly defective in rhythm and the other aids that would make its commission to memory an easy task. A rearrangement along the general lines of “Curfew Shall Not King To-night” would lighten the labor of subsequent classes in this regard and earn their eternal gratitude. — 21 — JJPJ N ON TO KlGhT or tmeax, c NOM TO LfcFT or T 1£A Department of Ordnance and Science of Gunnery PROFKSSOR I.ikiti:xant-0)I.on»:i.

He emerges (supposedly) with the ability to construct everything from a squirt-gun to a Columbiad. Perhaps the average knowledge might not bear the test of exhaustive investigation but, cheer up a knowledge of the basic equations of gun construction will not find extensive application in drilling a detachment of the Nth foot and, besides, the few who eventually land in the Ordnance Department will probably have to begin at the bottom and learn it all over again after the approved method adopted by the twentieth century hero. In the text books of the Department (prepared especially for the use of cadets) one encounters again that ancient and honorable grind the sole gleam of humor which illuminates the dreamy tomes through which the cadet, wearily plods bis way. For it is solemnly set forth in the preface that, the principles elucidated in this little volume arc elementary in the extreme. That comforting assurance forms a prominent part of the apology for its existence that is prefixed to every assortment of knowledge prepared for the tender mind in text book form. One comes to expect that word of encouragement and would look upon its omission as marking the passing of the time-honored institution. Often as lie may be disillusioned, be will always believe once more. However, if the principles embodied in those yard-long equations be so markedly elementary, gratitude is due the kind Providence that spares the long-suffering cadet a complete discussion of the subject. But time brings many, many things to pass. It is even conceivable that we may, in the course of time, cease to regard with suspicion the results of our computations on the slide rule and accept the testimony of that oracle to the effect that ii x 4 without satisfying ourselves in the old-fashioned way. And if such a contingency can be regarded as within the range of possibility we may, with reasonable security, cherish a hope of eventually reaching the end of that big red book. Graduation leave will probably eradicate, in toto, the results of the course from our respective systems and we will proceed to our allotted stations with no more than an occasional fleeting recollection of our frantic struggles with symbols of tbe craft. 23 —Department of Natural and Experimental Philosophy PROFESSOR Likctkxaxt-Colonki.

AYING completed the justly fume:l course in Natural und Experimental (principally experimental) Philosophy we can now gaze with contempt on the limited variety of the Walrus’ knowledge. We have proved to our eternal satisfaction that “the sun do move,” by trying to find him in a dish of mercury with a sextant. We have followed the much abused molecule through its various and sundry gyrations. And wlmt a world of experience we gained during those Mav evenings on the plain! ('ould there be a better example of the painstaking and careful researches of science than the sight of our dignified instructor stretched out flat on a poncho with his chin whiskers tangled in the dewy grass, trying to find Venus for some goat, who had carefully measured the altitude of the lamplight in front of the Stipe’s quarters. It. is possible that there are some sceptics among us who doubt the practical value of being able to calculate the Mean Solar time in London to the thousandth of a second, knowing that it is two hundred days till June at West Point. Those we must ignore as no true followers of Galileo. Ilerschel and “Swatsie C’asud.” The majority of us are proud in the possession of knowledge that may some day guide us out of a howling wilderness, if we are so fortunate as to find in our pocket a sextant, an Kphemeris, an artificial horizon, and the other trifles necessary to locate ourselves. If we had acquired nothing else during the course, would we not he amply repaid by having been provided with a rule of action that applies to any time, any place, any dilemma, i. e„ “Send for Winkleman?” It may In true, as Shakespeare sings, that there are still “things undreamed of in our philosophy,” but on that score “we have to he shown.” To lay aside, for a moment, the spirit of jest, we should like to express our appreciation of the consideration shown us in this Department. Our relations with the instructors were of the most cordial kind. The spirit of all with whom we came into contact seemed to be to treat us with gentlemanly courtesy and to allow us the greatest possible freedom.wasiv ifrafrfaft ( • ui i ji « iJtal PROFESSOR Coionk.i Samcki.

No other theory "ill satisfactorily account for the presence of the glorious assortment of subjects in which instruction is here given. The finished product of the Department is possessor of a knowledge that ranges from an acquaintance with the appearance, character, and ancestry of every denizen of the Primordial Beach to an ability to describe in detail the process of making beer. He can converse fluently of the merits of the central siphuncle as contrasted with the ventral and can give the particulars of the bloody prehistoric battle which ultimately resulted in the victorious conquest of the Lamellibranchs by the (vasteropods. Nor is all his instruction gleaned from books. In the "Lab.” he acquires the logical method of reasoning which leads to a true understanding of the relation of cause and effect.

Even when the memory of Nelson and the wary cryophorus sinks to oblivion his faith in these truisms will not waver. And now for a serious word in closing. The class of 1009 entered upon its studies in the Department of Chemistry with pleasant anticipations based upon the unqualified endorsement given it by the preceding class. Nor were we disappointed. During the entire period of our association with the Department its conduct towards us was marked bv an unfailing patience and courteous treatment that won our hearty admiration. — 27 —a H CUVfK BVT 15 IT ART?

But, • as nothing is eternal in this mortal life of ours, finally the last plate is approved and slop work (well named, indeed) occupies the attention. This proves but the “stepping stone to higher things” and the yearling year terminates with a map of West Point, drawn, usually, in the friendly shelter of some rock on “Fort Put.” Furlough over, the “student officer” completes his artistic development. Deprived of the helping 'I' square and triangle he relies on the modicum of genius that God gave him to produce something remotely resembling a straight line. At this time the perennially youthful grinds concerning “the HI pencil” and “the clean, sweet line” make their appearance. From the first attempt to portray the infinite variety of a cube to the final despairing effort to draw a monkey wrench which shall not be mistaken for a pair of manicure scissors the progress is rapid. The appearance of the warm spring days brings a series of lectures on the great and near great in Art. intended to prepare the auditors ( ?) for the annual trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. 'This is the season of the “post prandial nap.” Those who cannot resist, lapse to unconsciousness during a discussion of tin architecture of ancient Egypt and awake centuries later among the splendors of Rome,—latter-day Kip Van Winkles. And last of all comes landscape sketching, which serves only to produce a conviction of the error of not making the adjacent landscape a thing of straight lines and angles. This completed, the great day arrives when the implements of the craft are collected and farewell—a long farewell—is bade to “the counterfeit and counterpart of nature reproduced in Art.” — 2'J —  ikfiiiiVJ .jl wY ASSOCI ATE PROFESSOR (’aitain George B. 1 11.1 111 hv, Corps of Fngim ers; class ’00; graduated I.

Since I hat time all mankind has seemed linked in a conspiracy to dig up mathematical knowledge that would roughen up the smooth places in the lives of I Tide Sam's Pampered Pets. As a result of their untiring labors, the plebe is confronted on the threshold of his military career with a truly appalling array of weird fancies and vain imaginings. With Algebra and Geometry, his troubles begin, and a faltering, stumbling progress leads through “'Prig., ' Plane and Solid Conics, “Descrip.," and finally “( ’alcule.” the completion of which is celebrated by a “never-again," perhaps the most heartfelt one of cadet days. 'The last few years have marked the passing of one of West Point's most time-honored institutions the late lamented text book on Algebra by one C. Smith. One who could ga .e with any degree of comprehension upon the idiosyncrasies of that immortal tome need have no fear for the future-knowledge is, to him, an open book. All that remained for him was a mastery of the Fourth Dimension—and subsequent, merciful, insanity. Hut to the common herd who plod and plod, other methods were necessary and the usual expedient adopted was to assume the truthfulness of the respected (’. Smith as a “scholar and a gentleman" and to swallow, whole, his mathematical conclusions. Not that the latter process was an easy one the alternative of premature graduation had something to do with the choice. It has been, from time immemorial, the custom of the Corps to exaggerate the ridiculous aspect of things and no subject, however awe-inspiring, can escape. Hut in the case of this Department, jest often masks a real and poignant anxiety, for the prospect of being “found in Math.’ hangs like the sword of Damocles over the devoted heads of the two lower classes. That this fear is not unfounded may be proved bv the fact that the number of deficiencies reported in Mathematics form a large majority of the total. The requirements of the course are stern and rigorous, of mercy there is little, and the doctrine of the survival of the fittest holds undisputed sway. Hut those who do survive, come through the ordeal with a fair certainty of attaining the Mecca of all our strivings— Graduation which begins to loom as a remote but possible consummation of the four year-long task. — 31 — P010MW5; WHAT DO yOV READ,A y LORD? ] mIET " WORDS, WORDS, WORDS.'"

And as the object of the former is to train his mind to the methods of thought required for the mastery of the later subjects in the realm of applied mathematics, so it is the function of the latter to inculcate in him the ability to “speck.” Here it is that he first fully appreciates tin value of being able to start at the third line of the left hand page and enunciate verbatim the author’s conclusions on the subject. In the beginning he is treated to a short course in “English as she is spoke’ which consists chiefly in the criticism and correction of sentences like the following: “For sale—a hrindlc bulldog who will eat anything—is fond of children.” The prosaic character of this occupation is occasionally varied by the study of some thrillingly pathetic passage similar to that describing the water-logged adventures of the Brother and Sister—a pearl of thought which ranks second only to the “fixed opinion” of General Scott. This mastery of the mother tongue is the foundation upon which is reared the imposing and oft-times unstable edifice of his linguistic knowledge. French next occupies his attention and, after a year's struggle with the Court Language, our plehe (by this time a haughty yearling) goes on Christmas leave to find himself reduced to a condition of stammering inaninity by an ordinary bill of fare. He is now ready to imbibe the knowledge of pure Castilian which is to complete the catalogue of his attainments. After a daily diet of comparatively short duration, he essays conversations of a most wonderful nature on the “muchas cosas” that there are in Madrid. At the end of these comes Furlough and our one-time plehe sallies forth ready to lay violent siege to the heart of any “sefiorita bonita” that may cross his path. To one looking back upon the knowledge here acquired through the haze that partially obscures all antc-Furlough recollections it presents an aspect of polyglot confusion. Two phrases we can never tangle —“II me faut ecrire—”, and “Sc me exige escribir ” and these may stand us in good stead in our linguistic dilemmas of the future. But beyond this we venture with fear and trembling. M. »" •«•■?) ■ I- t .J Nff «-•« M? T.ny,j — 33 —pnysic Department of Military Hygiene PROFESSOR l.iKiitSAXT-CowsKt Ciiahi.i'.s M.

A. — 34 —THE-1009-HOWITZER AY back in the beginning of things, when the little tin gods who planned the routine of our daily lives were busy at their labors, they suffered « lapse. It was in this wise: Second Class Gymnasium and Riding ends on March fifteenth and the arbiters of our fate completely forgot to provide occupation during the remainder of the year for those Second Classmen who were not attending Drawing and who, in consequence, found themselves blessed with two whole hours of leisure every other afternoon. Taking this to be a dispensation of Providence the fortunate ones murmured devoutly “Allah be bootlieked! Allah be praised!” and proceeded to make the most of the boon. Rut such a Ctopian state of affairs could not long exist and one day the matter came to the watchful eyes of those who work out our destiny. Then there was great confusion and much running to and fro until the oversight was corrected and the Department of Hygiene emerged as a reality to fill the vacant space. That the Department is of the “newly new” will at once become apparent when an examination of the text books reveals the fact that they have not been interpolated. Rut notwithstanding this defect, which time will doubtless remedy, they contain some valuable rules. When in doubt remember that the human mechanism is like a locomotive, and never venture to cross the area on a dark night without having your headlight lit, being careful, also, to toot your whistle at frequent intervals. Rut outside the textbooks, which must be specked in the good old-fashioned way, a large part of the course is embodied in the series of lectures delivered by the Lord High Keeper of the Pill-Rox, the esteemed Colonel. After having heard in detail the death-dealing antics of our friend the fly, the Second Classman becomes the prey of nightmares in which huge and ferocious flies prey on his health and happiness. Indeed so clearly does la come to comprehend the dangers which menace the vital spark that in his conviction of the uncertainty of this mortal life he turns his thoughts to “higher thinks.” And he resolves to accept, without question, the advice that “when traveling it is best to drink little or no water.” With the completion of these lectures the course ends, and the finished product is turned loose on a helpless world, an authority upon every subject. from the dangers of alcoholism to the insidiousness of the gum-chewing habit. — 35be Corps! bareheaded salute it.

THE eagle that was lazily living toward Cro Nest paused just over the parade ground to watch with interest the scene below. It was late of a June afternoon, and the class of Nineteen Nine was attending its last parade. There stood the next day's graduates, filling the line of file-closers,—while from the hand on the right Hooted up the strains of "Home, Sweet Home.” "And to-morrow," thought the eagle, "they will be scattered from Yukon to Manila, never again to In all together. But wherever they go, they will carry with them, as their predecessors for a hundred years have done, that spirit of truth and honor and pluck.—the spirit of the Old—and the New—West Point. In the thick of the world’s fight, they will still be members of the Corps.” And now the class were marching forward abreast, a long unbroken line, seeming to face fearlessly and hopefully whatever tasks the future of the Nation might hold for them. ;........................................................... The sun had set upon Nineteen Nine’s last day at the Academy, but as the eagle reflectively continued his flight, the western sky glowed bright with promise for the future. — 102 —COLOR.

ELL, here we are again,” remarked Injun in a lifeless tone, intending not so much to convey information, as to emphasise that doleful fact. “Yes, and with two long years of ‘boning’ ahead of us,” rejoined P. 1). from where he lay sprawled on the table pulling viciously at his class pipe. The room was hot and stuffy; the air was full of tobacco smoke; the floor, the beds, the chairs, were strewn with litter of every sort and description; and the group of men lounging about in every stage of disarray, looked sadly dishevelled and very tired. For you see this was the night of their return from Furlough. It didn’t look much like a room as you usually picture a room at West Point, but there were extenuating circumstances. There had not been time to get settled and besides, if there had, it wouldn't have been of much use. One fellow had already been transferred three times during the afternoon, and the rest stood a good show of getting shifted that night; so they had finally given up any pretense of putting their effects to rights and had settled down to dreams of what the last summer had brought them. "Well. I guess maybe we didn’t have something of a banquet—what say, beau?” came reminiscently from the lied where old Jean Hart was “layin’ low” and not saying much. —105 —THE-1009-HOWITZER "Voua aves bicn (lit,” came the chorus, for there was no doubt about the answer to that question. Furlough banquets come only once in a lifetime and the memory of this one will always be kept fresh, between the covers of our dinner cards, by the signatures of that happy crowd. "I’m here to tell you that we stay backs had a keen time with our ‘banquet up here," lazily remarked Hobby with a smack of his lips, "and those kegs on our cards aren’t going to run dry of reminisecnes even if they weren’t green!” “Say, and that reminds me of the time we touched off that set piece over on the hedge in Camp Michic, remember. Injun? It’s a wonder to me they never did anything about that." "I tell you I was kind of leary of it for a while myself, it's a fact, but they didn’t." "And do you all remember how Hoodie Hill ‘managed’ that midnight excursion that put a stop to the Injun’s dreams of glory; and Dobbin’s forays into the hearts of the ’keen femmes! ’’ "And the dragging parties that Jo-Jo was forever springing on us. I never shall forget the time when Venus sat up in n stiff military manner, on finding himself in the middle of the company street, and said in his severest tones. 'Come off it!’ I tell you that was the best camp ever.” "Yes, and there’s another coming, and besides, we’ll lie so busy we soon won’t know we’ve been on Furlough.” It is safe to assume that the maker of this sage remark sported chevrons when he had on outer garments. “Won’t know we’ve been on Furlough!” "A peach of a time you must have had!" and other similar rejoinders came in astonishment from all quarters of the room, while Daddy, in a grieved tone, said, "Any fellow who can calmly sit up and say he expects to forget he ever was on Furlough must Ik? bug-house or a F-css, which is worse. Louie, I wouldn’t have thought it of you." "Well, that’s all right, Daddy, you can say what you like," remarked Joe, who, up to this point, had been too far off in dreamland to take much of a part in the conversation, "but I don’t see any use in moping around your room all the time, counting the days till June, when you can just as well enjoy the present by going to the hops and what dinners you can work yourself into, or into yourself, depending on how you look at it.” After which long-winded atUtu t, he subsided, while the occupant of the bed grunted disdainfully, muttering iWV-esscr-like things ns he rolled over. “Fact is,” proclaimed Injun. "I don't see where the Second Classman conics in at all. Nothing but a realization of the fallacy of tin ‘Second Class Cinch Theory,' and boning impossible, jaw-breaking, if rock-making, minerals and such, with nothing whatever to look forward to, for two long, dreary years. Who do you think’s going to notice you anyway? A First Classman is an autocrat, he amounts to something, a Yearling to even more, and look at the Plebes—they get sympathy, but a Second Classman—bah!” and he snapped his fingers. At this moment the clatter of tattoo broke out ami the meeting adjourned sine die; but, had you been listening, you might have heard the embryo quill murmur. “Well, it isn’t very long until First Class Camp, anyway!" — 100 —SECOND CLASS ROLL ALESHIRK.

This is my second tour of sendee, so you’ll know that, if I’m not an amanuensis gun, my black rust and absence of blueing are come by honorably. Because my association with 1911 dates back through Beasts’ Barracks, I feel that I am a competent authority on its Class history. There were one hundred and thirty-eight of us who reported for duty that June, although now, we’re only eighty-five. I got to lx very well acquainted with my Man at the daily cleaning formations. Those first three weeks seemed an awful nightmare to him, but I guess they were to every one. We soon began to In much Improved under the strain, and by the time we marched over to Camp behind the band, we were fairly respectable plebes. There was an endless round of drills and cleaning in Camp, and I began to feel quite prom! of my appearance again. But I got that dent on my right side that summer. It was my Man’s first guard tour, and he fought the whole detail, individually and collectively, the whole night long. The wonder is, that I wasn’t dashed to pieces before the tour was over. Later, the practice march afforded a diversion, but. while the firing was exciting, it was only blank ammunition, and I was dragged through swamps and stacked in the rain until I was disgracefully dirty. — Ill —After lliis, we moved to barracks, and the Class learned what it means to study in West Point fashion. Prom my Man I knew, before December, that our already dwindled Class was going to lose some more members. I learned from a friend, later, that there were thirteen that went out the east sally port that Christmas-tide. We got through tlie March writs successfully and then we guns, who bail been idle except for guard duty and inspection, began to attend drill and parade once more. J noticed that my Man didn't brace any more and learned that bis plel edom was over. Some of the Class commenced to show their spooning propensities now. Why should a man waste time with a girl when bis equipment won’t stand inspection? It's a mystery to me. Pretty soon our Class got their makes, and then we moved over to Camp T. II. Huger. Wc hadn’t been there very long until some of us older ones began to shake our heads. There was too much bothering plebcs, too much boodle in Camp. Imagine having whole tubs of brew,—why I remember when a bucketful used to be thought a lot. There were great festivities hops and concerts in a ceaseless throng—and mv Man began to spend his afternoons down on Flirtation. One afternoon he bad a plebe clean me for parade. Some of the old Krags in the armory used to talk about this, but I never expected to have a plebe handle me again. Then came a dark time when my Man used to spend all his time in hiding away from home. Wc found that they were investigating ami pretty soon a day came when six of the Class were sent home, and there was great sorrow in Camp. None thought of going to the bop that night, every one seemed to have just lost bis best friend. My Man escaped, but he was worried for a while. The Class was having I . M. E. now, and mv Man used to talk about looking through a glass at a Peter Thompson girl playing golf—I never really understood but gathered it must be a new course in spooning. The First Class went awav for a week, and wc were left in charge. My, but those were seven glorious days! How the makes practiced sword-manual and bellowed commands about Camp! I was left deserted, for my Man spent all his time on a new rifle with a peculiar sight that came into the tent. I heard that he shot with it on the target range, but I never quite forgave him for the neglect. After a rainy week in the field, studies commenced again, and, in spite of Descrip, Christmas leave finally came around and our Class sent a great many men away for four days. Eight of the Class went away for good at this time. This is a funnv Class when you stop to think. Over half of us have our A. II.'s. some of us have been found in dis., and yet we have occasional brilliant spurts of l eing dissy. I wonder why we have lost so many.—we re a small class now. Hut there are some matters that are too deep for one that is getting as old as I am, and besides, when one has had as many years as I have, he knows better than to worry.

AT II LET IC R E P R ES E X TAT IV E. Roukht Fkk Hyatt. March S, 1908. Dear Dad: I am so dead tired to-night that I wouldn't even write this letter if they would let me go to lied. No, sir. we can't even sleep when we want to. We get up to a drum and we go to hed to a drum. I’m sick of drums and guns and everything else. I've dragged my chin in. until mother, who used to lie so proud of my prominent chin, wouldn’t know I had one. Think of an institution which attempts to destroy that characteristic feature of our family! I used to think I was pretty straight when I was captain of the White Star Cadets, hut here they treat me as if I had never lead anything more military than Squire Jones’ heifer. They say we are getting off easy. I don't see it that way. I'd like to see a real “beasts’ barracks” if this is a "Imsc imitation.” They make as drill in the riding hall, on the stoops, under the stoops, and in the gym, and, when all the dry places are filled up, they drill us in the mud. I don’t see why you ever persuaded me to come to West Point. I wish I had Captain Charles King and the other West Point novelists here now. I feel a whole lot like the hero of a story book, I do. And now. Dad, I want you to see Senator Bilkins and ask him to use his influence to help me get out of this place. I'd like to come Irnek home and take a position in your bank at $9 a week, if you will have me. Your loving son, John. 1 . S.- What do you supposed possessed mother to give my picture in the uniform of the White Star Cadets to the Kokomo Sentinel? The Sentinel must have a large circulation at West Point for everybody seems to know about it and it has helped materially to fill my cup of woe to overflowing. — 117 —July 25. 1 J08. Dear Father: I’m beginning to like West Point a little better. We had a minor tactical problem yesterday, and though I didn't know what they were trying to do, it was exciting and reminded me of that picture of Missionary Ridge which used to hang in the library. I was the only plebe in my squad, so I did enough shooting for eight. I’m wondering what the cadet captain will say about my gun at parade to-night. He is the hardest man to satisfy I ever saw. 1 made a parody on this subject which I sent to the Kokomo Sentinel. I’ll quote a verse of it just to show you how it goes: “Tell me, Captain, thing of evil, Captain still, if quill or devil. By the skins that hover o'er us, by ti e Tacs we l oth deplore, Will my gun, without detection, safely pass the next inspection. Can I ever clean my l orc, clean my rusty, dusty bore?" Quoth the Captain, “Nevermore.” I was up before the hazing investigation last week. They told me I had been hazed because I made two tubs of “brew” in the “C” Company laundry tent. Since 1 drank a bucket of the stuff myself, I ventured to disagree with the Board. They read me the Black Book and I surrendered. “You don't know hazing until you’ve read the Black Book.” Your affectionate son. John. P. S. Tell the Senator that I’ve decided to stick it out for a while longer. John. December 26, 1908. Dear Governor: The first skirmish is over and I’m still here. I went down into the Valley of the Shadow, however. You don’t know how near you came to having an additional second assistant cashier on your hands. I haven't had such a narrow escape since the practice march, when I tried to ride a mule to water. The math here is different, somehow, from the kind we had when I stood at the head of my class at High School. The “Sentinel” was a trifle off when it said that I would enter the Engineer Corps for which I was so well fitted. Yesterday was Christmas at home, 1 suppose. To really appreciate a Christmas you ought to spend it "on the radiator,” where I spent mine, wondering if P. Echols had found me in math. Maybe you can imagine my frame of mind. Don't worry about my demerits. They don’t amount to anything. Everybody gets lots of them. In a little over two months we will be yearlings. Last week, I saw in the "Sentinel” an appreciation of Mr. Jeremiah Ducrot. of Jefferson, who has just received a congressional appointment from our district. I cut it out for future reference. Yours as usual, John. — 118 —FOURTH CLASS ROLL 1. AIXBN. TKRRY DK LA MKSA. Ft. Snolllng. .Minn. 2. ANDERSON, RICHARD EMMANUEL, Castle Rock. Colorado 3. ARNOLD. ARCHIBALD VINCENT.Brooklyn. X. Y.

APRIL II. The elements being finally propitious, the baseball season opens. The knockers' bench is again in evidence. APRIL If). No more buck guard tours. This is tile good word which passes round among the clean sleeves of the second class. Only those who have walked in a dress coat in the sultry heat of an August afternoon, or piped away a second relief tour on a cold winter’s night, can appreciate the sense of joy which one feels when his name at last comes off the guard roster, and sentinel duty is a thing of the past. The Yearling dreams of Furlough And pipes the time away. The second classman thinks of camp And knocks the lire long day. MAY 4. The second class, under the personal supervision of Colonel Lamed and Captain Paine, go to the Metropolitan Art Museum to cultivate their sense of tlur beautiful. Incidentally, they visit Buffalo Hill in the evening. Subsequently, they write a theme of 99,000 words. MAY 80. Memorial Day.

What cynic among us. having tasted the fleeting joys of this blissful period, can say that Furlough does not do much to make our course here endurable, by reminding us that there is still a great world beyond the narrow confines of the Area? JUNE 13. With the usual formalities Camp Thomas II. Huger is inaugurated, ami we settle down to our summer life. There have In-en camps before, but never one like this. JUNE 23.

The rest of the Corps returns from the practice march to welcome 1910 hack from Furlough. Why does a second classman look so disconsolate when he comes back to his dear friends and fond associations? Many forget this despondency, however, at the Furlough Hop. The melancholy daps have come, the saddest of the pear. With mathematics, chemistry, and stress, and double shear, The weary Kaydet now must hone Philosophy's deep lore, And sighs to think of all the tenths he's lost for evermore. — 12« —SEPTEMBER I.

Marching up and down again.” Kiplixg. N the morning of August 24, I9( 8. the Corps of Cadets left West Point on their annual practice march, marking the end of the summer's practical instruction. At Adjutant's call the different units formed line on the Cavalry Plain,—two battalions of infantry, a field battery, a mountain battery, two troops of cavalry; with wagon train and ambulance bringing up the rear. After inspection bv the Superintendent, the entire force passed in review and the Summer Campaign of 1908 was on. The tactical problems worked out during the week consisted of a rear guard action, protection of a railroad, attack of convoy, defense of a defile, forced march to relief of a position, and defense of a position. Every evening there was a general discussion of the day's problem by the opposing commanders and the umpires, but it was generally impossible to convince the loser that he had been licked. FROM A FIRST CLASSMAN’S DIARY. Yesterday was P. M. E. day a steady diet of map making with a lecture for dessert. Pitched a dog ti nt in the dark and rolled in, counting paces in mv sleep, and taking pot shots at a llock of conventional signs with a clinometer, until I was pleasantly awakened by the gentle rain on my upturned face. I struck the tent, and waded to the picket line to single out my beast for a half-hour of manicure and massage. Led him half a mile through tin mud and mire to moisten his TUB STAIIT — 134 —internals, but lie shyly refused to have one on me, so I rode this time to the camp of the dashing jackass battery, where I was welcomed like a long lost brother. Moved out and all went well until one of the lady mules got peevish and decided slic'd have to be coaxed, anyway she desisted from further locomotion in the desired direction. I requested her politely to accompany me. but without result. Plainly it was up to me to show my authority, so I gave her a direct order to proceed, whereupon she coquettishly high kicked in my direction. Becoming incensed I told her she was no lady, and in the future need not expect to be treated as such. I mounted her and applied the aids, as provided in the drill regulations, then dismounted and applied a switch, as forbidden in the drill regulations. 1 thought of “building a fire under her” but there wasn't a dry stick within a mile. Filially I decided to accept the assistance of a four-horse army wagon, got all the tackle adjusted, detailed six switchmen, and gave the word. Hut just about then she decided to yield gracefully to the inevitable, cast off her tow lines, and did the “Full Speed Ahead” act under her own steam. Arrived at tin battlefield just in time to participate in a victory for the other side-—and was gleefully informed that if I had arrived on time tin extra gun would have turned the tables. Of course I couldn’t put the blame off on a lady, so I stood for it, and disgustedly followed the victors into camp. Ami such a camp! Wet? Well, it made a shower bath look dry and dusty. The surgeon told us in his lecture that all water should be filtered, so pitched the tent for this purpose but it only sifted it a little; most came through without any hesitancy. Supped on delicious cold spuds and near-coffee, lit my corn cob, and here I am. And to think that I’d looked forward to first class practice march as a cinch! T11K CAM I AT vrKK.NSBOROUGII 135 —FROM A YEA HI.ISO’S. About 'i A. M. I awoke to a cold and dreary world, and also to the fact that riding breeches are a pretty cold fess as acting pajamas. Accordingly I beat it for the camp tire, where I found a forlorn crowd apparently endeavoring to shiver themselves into a sweat. Presently we broke forth into a dirge, which awakened others who joined us until the whole camp was gathered around waiting for reveille— sweetest music that particular A. M. During the succeeding day we participated in the defense of a railroad. It was a most successful affair for both sides, as we learned in the evening lecture. I’lie military experts who saw tin- affair unanimously disagreed that the attack would have utterly destroyed tin- railroad and that the defense would have successfully held it against all attacks. This seeming paradox need not worry anyone who is familiar with the inner workings of the Toe Department. That night, in order to simulate service conditions, as per order of tin Commandant of Cadets, it began to rain. Spent the next day trying to outflank the enemy by double timing faster than he did. Failed miserably because In- didn’t have so far to go. Reached camp pretty near fagged out. Decided to go to town nevertheless. Borrowed a first classman's revolver and spurs, tied a red bandana handkerchief around my neck, and began to feel real devilish. Nothing to do hut walk up and down the one street of the village, but had a good time at that. Invested heavily in soda water and bought up all the Peters’ chocolate in town. After supper went to a hop at a hotel three miles from camp. My borrowed pistol and spurs made a great hit with the femmes, even if the spurs did cause more or less damage to their dresses when it came to dancing. Didn t get in till 1 o clock, hut .as I had neglected to pitch my dog tent nobody was any the wiser. Slept in the cook tent. Felt rather tired the next day.

Remembered I was on the kitchen detail, so went down to the cook tent to get warm and was promptly put to work peeling potatoes, a most romantic occupation. After the regular morning concert by the Hell Cat Band. 1 poured pink tea at a rather informal al fresco breakfast, and then took the kitchen apart and loaded it on the company wagon. Almost everyone hail gone by this time, so I double timed merrily along after them. Soon caught the company, also something else for trying to deadbeat. Our gallant Tae led us through marsh and swamp to a bloodless victory over a battery already captured. Arrived at camp and pitched the cook tent,—the tac’s tent, the company officers' tent, in fact most any old tent that seemed to need pitching. That night a crowd of us decided to go to town. After an hour’s walk on dark and muddy roads came to the conclusion that we had missed it somehow, or had walked through it without knowing if. Soiih ImmIv suggested that he'd had about enough walking, and without a word of dissent wc all turned around and retraced our steps. We reached camp just lieforc taps, only to find that some thoughtful fib- had borrowed our blankets. We borrowed some wood from the cook tent, started a fire, and waited for reveille. The next day wc had another "problem" which ended up with a hurrah somewhere near Lusk Reservoir, after the customary mystifying maiueuvres to get into position.

ALTHOUGH tin- Military Academy was the first of the educational institutions of this nation to recognize the value of a uniform system of physical training, having established such a course as early as 1817. it was the last of the important colleges of our nation to allow its students to enter the field of competitive athletics. The Academic Board dreaded the results of allowing cadets to participate in contests with the representatives of other schools, and. for nearly a century, outdoor sports received but scant encouragement. In 1890 the first step was taken in this direction. games being played with outside teams in baseball, while in November of this year we met the Navy in football, this being the first athletic contest to be held with our Annapolis rivals. At the present time contests with outside teams are held in five branches of athletics, viz, football, baseball, fencing, basketball, and hockey, in the first three of which our representatives meet those of the Navy annually. In addition to the altovc mentioned sports, track work, tennis, golf. polo, and wrestling have been introduced and encouraged during the past few years. The present system of indoor gymnastics dates from 188 . ORGANIZATION AND SUPPORT. The financial support of athletics at the Academy is derived solely from the contributions of officers, cadets, and friends of the Academy. In 1892, through the efforts of Captain Koehler, the regulation and administration of organized athletics were placed by the Superintendent in the hands of the Army Athletic Association, active membership in which was restricted to officers on duty at West Point. During the sixteen years of its existence, cadet athletics were managed with great success, and under its supervision most creditable work was done by the representatives of the Corps. However, the status of the Association was hardly an official one, and. owing to the fact that the authorities at the Academy were legally responsible for the conduct of Corps athletics, it was deemed advisable in 1908 to vest the entire control of such matters in a council appointed for that purpose by the Superintendent. The official nature of the present council gives it a prestige that was not possible under the old regime. This council is assisted by an advisory cadet council, composed of one representative from each class, and the captains of the three principal athletic teams. OFFICERS' ATHLETIC COUNCIL FOR 1909.

Although the glorification of the Military Academy and the maintenance of its proudest traditions must always be among the leading purposes of Corps athletics, there is yet a deeper significance attached to tin labors of those Cadets who strive for success in the various branches of competitive sport. Our teams do not represent the Corps and the Academy alone in a broader sense they represent the Army of the United States, and wherever organizations of that Army may lx stationed, there will be found loyal hearts who look with pride upon the achievements of the cadet teams and who share with those present at the Academy the hopes and fears which attend each athletic season. The deeds of the West Point teams and the example and teachings of its athletic heroes are a constant aid and inspiration to general athletics throughout the Army. This is a fact to lx- constantly borne in mind bv those now at the Academy. Our teams represent the Army, and whatever is done by us along athletic lines is done not for ourselves alone, but for others. THE COACHES. In the development of the cadet athletic teams the coaches have, from the lx -gilining, played a most conspicuous part. In baseball, professional coaching with graduate assistance, has given generally good results in the past, and there is every reason to look for still better work in the future. The fencing instructors now at the Academy have been largely responsible for the establishment of a truly remarkable record. In football we have not been blind to the advantage of the styles of play in vogue at other colleges, and while adhering as far as possible to a graduate coaching staff, we have not hesitated to obtain outside assistance. It is believed by competent judges that our present coaching system is an excellent one; certainly, if results are any criterion of merit, we must maintain that it was good enough last season to satisfy the most captious critic. A large share of credit for the achievements of the past and a great amount of our confidence of future success arc due to the unfaltering efforts and unselfish devotion of those who have been and now are in charge of the instruction of our athletic teams. It is the duty of the Corps to render the coaches the same loyal support and hearty cooperation in their work which it extends to the men who fight on our teams. — 143 —I Air: "Tippkhahy” When you see that old veteran Army Team Come hounding over the ropes.

McGEE — 144 —TllfcVJOOOjI Q ;! Tf, EVL T tin- commencement of the football season of IJK)8, the outlook for a winning team was none too bright. The eleven of which we had hoped so much the year before had met defeat, and several of its stars had since been lost by graduation. Not a class now at the Academy had seen a victory over the Navy. That fact alone was sufficient to instil a spirit of grim determination into every one connected with the development of the Army team. The Navy must Ik beaten! That was the keynote of the entire season. The coaches took it as their single aim and kept it constantly before them in their plans for the season's work. Kvcry man on the squad, from the captain to the scrubs, felt that this was their whole duty. The Corps adopted this sentiment as their slogan from the beginning, and, led by a dauntless and untiring cheer-leader, the gray clad battalion stood shoulder to shoulder behind that team from start to finish, according it a support which was constant in its fervor and untiring loyalty throughout the vicissitudes of a trying season. The summer practice brought out more men than ever Ik fore, and a presage of the enthusiasm of the coming autumn was to bo seen in the unusual interest manifested in football during the sultry afternoons of Camp Ruger. As soon as the fall work began, the intense feeling of all concerned was apparent. The spirit of the season communieated itself to every man on the field and every rooter in the stands. The veterans and the younger blood on the team were alike animated by the same sense of a great task to be performed. No petty feeling of jealousy, no selfish personal ambition, sprang up to neutralize the earnest endeavors of the coaches or place in jeopardy our chances of ultimate success. The fighting qualities of the team were splendidly exhibited in the magnificent defense which immortalized the Princeton game. As the season progressed, these dualities became more pronounced and the fervor of the Corps l ecamc more ardent. When the work of preparation was over on the eve of the departure of the squad for Philadelphia, the enthusiasm of the season culminated in a grand mass meeting, where the Intensity of feeling in the Corps rose to such heights that even those who have watched the progress of Army elevens since 181)0 were forced to admit that never before had such an exhibition of encouragement and devotion been seen at the Academy. Hacked by this sincere confidence and unwavering support, the team of 11)08. uncredited by outside critics with more than a fighting chance of victory. went forth to meet the best eleven that the Naval Academy has ever produced. Two days later, on the historic ground of Franklin Field, the Army accepted that “fighting chance'’ and made good.

A courage more than human urged the Army team on to a victory over the gallant defenders of the Blue and Gold, and the spirit of that battle found utterance in the spontaneous cry of FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! which burst forth from the Cadet stands in the intervals between the regular yells, and kept from our ear throughout the struggle the sound of the Navy siren. When the referee’s whistle sounded the close of the game, the work of months had been crowned with success. The goal which had been kept constantly in view from the beginning had been achieved- All honor to every coach and player who in any way contributed to the result of the season’s lalmr!

This team consisted of men not on the regular squad and was coached by Lieutenant Zell and Cadet Fowler. Cadet Polk. 10, was captain of the team. Six games were played and the team made a record of 147 points, not a point being scored against them. All of these games were with preparatory schools in the vicinity. — 148 —HE initial game of the season was with Tufts, on October 3rd, and resulted in a victory for the Army by a score of 5 to 0. Advantage was taken of this first opportunity to try out much of the new material; twenty-one men were sent in by the Army. The touchdown was the direct result of a well executed forward pass. Against Trinity, a week later, we rolled up a for-midablc total of thirty-three points. The features of this game were a sixty yard dash for a touchdown by Dean and Brown’s blocking of a forward pass, followed by a thirty yard run to the Trinity gonl. Dean kicked a clean goal from the field in the first half. The first real test of tin; season came with the Yale game on October 17th. The weather was exceptionally warm—more conducive to the comfort of spectators than to that of players. This game always awakens public interest as it is regarded as a critical point in the development of both teams. Yale had a great advantage in point of weight as their team was heavier than ours by twenty pounds to tin- man. There was a thrill in store for the Army sympathizers at the very beginning of the game. Greblc made a fair catch of one of C’oy’s punts on Yale’s fortv-onc yard line and Dean attempted a goal from the field that went outside the posts by a matter of inches. The remainder of the half was a punting duel with the advantage with the Army. We kept the ball constantly in Yale’s territory and at no time was our goal line in any danger. The beginning of the second half saw no changes in either team. The kicking game was again taken up and Coy’s punting showed a slight improvement over what ARMY 5 TUFTS 0 ARMY 33 TRINITY 0 ARMY 0 YALE 6 KF.HX AHOl'N'D F.XDARMY 6 COLGATE 0 lu had done in the first half. Once Yale marched the ball down to our twenty-five yard line only to lose it on a fumble which Cireble covered. Hack and forth surged the play, and as the minutes slipped by. it began to look as though last year’s zero to zero score would Ik repeated. Unfortunately, one of our men was caught holding on one of Coy’s punts and the ball went to Yale on our twenty-five yard line. From this point the Yale back field battered its way bv straight line bucking to our four yard line and Coy carried the ball across for the only score of the game. The extremely warm weather made the contest a gruelling one and robbed the play of much snap and vigor. 1 lie following Saturday wc played Colgate in the midst of a driving rain that made the gridiron slippery and footing precarious. Colgate had one opportunity to score early in the game, when a fumble gave them a chance for a field goal, but a fifty yard run by (treble carried the play into Colgate’s territory and we soon forced the ball over for a touchdown. Every ot'hCir- do v n The last dav of October brought the second big game of the season. This time we faced the Princeton Tiger. Our opponents were nearing the end of their season and had only two more games to play, while we were somewhat crippled by the loss of the services of Moss, Chamberlin and Wood. The day was cold and a twenty-five mile wind was blowing from the north. Philoon was so lucky as to win the toss and chose to defend the north goal with the wind in his favor. Princeton kicked oft to Dean and the fight was on. For a tiuu the ball stayed in our territory, in spite of some good work by (Jreblc and Kern.

Three plunging charges by tin- Tigers went to pieces against our line and the ball came to us. 1 lie wind was playing havoc with Grcble’s punts and a successful onsidc kick by Princeton again gave them tin ball oil our six yard line.

It seemed more than one could ask of mortal men to once more thrust back three smashing attacks and prevent Princeton’s crossing the scant live yards that separated them from a touchdown. Hut every man in the Corps was on his feet shouting encouragement to the team. The old fighting spirit of the Army showed supreme in that moment, for after the next three plays the Tigers had not only failed to gain but they had liecn thrust hack five yards. (Jreblc then got off a good punt and the danger was past, for Princeton bad no more chances to score ami the game ended a tie. with the honors to the Arinv.

A second team was sent in at the beginning of the game with Springfield Training School. Five times the ball was carried almost across the opponents' goal line and five times the Army was set back on penalties. An unexpected score by Springfield in the second half rendered quick action imperative. Only five minutes of play remained, so Philoon and Greblc were rushed in. The Springfield line melted before the Army attack, and in five plays the ball was carried fifty-five yards for a touchdown. Washington and Jefferson brought a strong team and early scored a touchdown on a forty yard run from a delayed pass. Soon after we battered our way forty yards through their line for a touchdown. The game with Villanova. on November 31st. showed the real strength ARMY W. J. ARMY 25 VILLANOVA 0 I IK Ml AGAIN of the Army offense. Old style football prevailed and the Army piled up twenty-five points. The result seemed to indicate that the Army team was working tip to the climax of a well rounded season. There was no hint of over-confidence, but such a decisive victorv over a team as strong as Villanova led to a feeling that the team would be in its fullest development for the big game one week later. And then, on November 28th. came the supreme test the seventy crucial minutes on Franklin Field, the result of which marks our football season as successful or the opposite. The Navy's veteran team was the best they had ever produced. According to the newspaper accounts the Army had little chance for a victory, and in Philadelphia the odds hung around five to three on the Navy. — 1.14 —The gods were propitious and gave us ideal football weather. A gayer or more enthusiastic crowd never assembled at Franklin Field. At 1 :S0 the Corps marched through the gates and took its place in the south stand. There was little laughter or merriment; every face was stamped with a grim determination that spoke volumes for the spirit of the gray clad contingent. The last three years had brought one tie and two defeats; and for one class it was the last chance to see the Navy go down in defeat. Every man was strong with the resolve to do his little all to aid the Army team to victory. The Navy team was the first to appear, and scarcely had the tumult of their welcome subsided when our warriors dashed out. Every man was on his feet in an instant, heads were hared, and lusty throats carried spirit and encouragement to the team. A few moments of practice, and the rival captains met at the centre of the field. Northcroft won tin- toss and chose to defend the west goal. A hush of expectancy settled upon the crowd as Dean poised the hall on a little mound at the centre of the field. The whistle blew, a dull thud, a curving yellow streak rose in the air. and the fight was on. Scarce three minutes had passed when tin- play was made that brought joy and exultation to every Army man. Greblc. standing on his twenty-five yard line, got off a punt that went to the Navy forty-five yard line. The hall got away from I.ange, and Chamberlin, coming down the field like a whirlwind. leaped high into the air and clutched it. Without slackening speed he was off for the Navy goal line, with I.ange close behind. — 155 —Ten. twenty, thirty yards hr made before Lange brought him to earth on the four yard line. No power on earth could have kept the Army team from gaining that coveted distance, and in two smashes Dean was pushed over C aptain Xorthcroft for the winning touchdown. The Army side went wild, and before the excitement hail liegim to subside Dean kicked the goal, adding one more point to our score. The Navy was bewildered, but by no means disheartened. They came back with noble spirit and commenced a deter-U.o Pav mined assault on the Army line, but with little result until near vVun- •' the end of the first half. A twenty yard run back by Lange, followed by a succession of line gains, placed them on our ten yard line with four yards to go for a first down. The Army team was fighting now, so Lange decided to try a field goal instead of attempting to carry the ball the coveted distance. Dropping hack to the fifteen yard line, lie booted the hall squarely between the goal posts. The remainder of the half was a punting duel, in the course of which neither goal was menaced. The Navy came back in the second half determined to do or die. lint they met their match in the fighting spirit of the Army team. The kicking game prevailed, and the handling of the punts by the Army back field was faultless. The play was once carried to the Navy thirty yard line and a forward pass put it on their ten yard line, but the officials decided that the pass was illegal and the ball went over to the Navy. Again the kicking game was taken up and tin- punts followed one another in quick succession, .fust as one of Lange's punts settled into Dean’s arms on our tin yard line, the whistle blew, and the game was over with a victory for the Army. “WKST 1 01 NT ! FIVE POINTS.'" — 130 —The New York Sun says of the game: “When it came right down to fmtthall the Navy eleven was outclassed. The Army rush line was on tiptoe at all times, breaking through quickly and blocking with remarkable strength. The backfield worked like a piece of well- ARMY 6 NAVY 4 oiled machinery and during the second half did so much effective battering that the Annapolis eleven was literally cut to pieces, so that Ik fore the game ended the Navy had six substitutes in the line-up. The game was remarkable for the fact that the ball was punted almost incessantly. In the exchanges it was apparent that the Army had a slight advantage. but in spite of so much kicking there was little muffing." All honor to every man who fought for the Army on that glorious day! All honor to the coaches who worked so conscientiously for this great result! Guard well the unquenchable spirit of that hour and victory can but perch on the Army banner in the future. — 157 —Surrjrriary of the Garoe .Johnson .............. Byrne, Besson .........

Dr. Houle again acted as coach. Indoor praetiee started in February under the direction of Christy Mathcwson, but. as is usual owing to our late spring, satisfactory outdoor practice could not be bad prior to April 11th. On this date the season commenced with a 3—1 victory over Union. Itilev and Hyatt were tried out in the box in this game and in the following one with Manhattan. This game was close throughout but a trick play enabled the New Yorkers to win out, 7 ( . Schneider replaced Dcvers at short in the Williams game. Hyatt pitched and the score was 3—0 in the visitors' favor when the home nine came to hat in the ninth. A fine rally, in which three timely hits helped to bring in four runs, landed the game for the Army. Fordlmni brought up its customary veteran team and won a close game, j—3. The local representatives unlimited their opponents hut gave Hi ley ragged support at critical moments. Yale came on April 2 Jth. In the first inning the Elis filled flu- sacks with none out. but Hyatt’s clever twirling prevented a tally. The blue was not to be denied, however, and landed on I im for four hits and two runs in the next inning Itilev then went in tin- Im . but was touched up freely. Yale making in all thirteen hits for six runs. The Virginia game was a pitcher's battle between Riley and Walker. It was terminated by a rain-storm in the eighth, when each side had one run to its credit. our j( ft handed twirier fanned ten men. — 103 —1000IIOWITZE] Pennsylvania got off with an early lead, but we took it from them in tin sixth when a batting streak was developed which brought in four earned runs. Simpson then went in the Im x for the visitors and prevented further scoring, striking out twelve of our men in six innings. Penn tied the score in the seventh and poor fielding gave them the winning run in the twelfth. Lehigh got but four scattered hits off Hvatt and was beaten 8- 1. Then Brown defeated us, !i 8, in a fourteen inning struggle. Krrors helped the visitors along. Harrison’s hatting and fielding were the features. Although outbatted, the Dartmouth team played an errorless game, overcame our early lead, and defeated us, 1 • . There was only one run scored in the Wesleyan game and the visitors got that by good inside baseball. I'lloa and Day were now playing in the outfield with Anderson. Columbia won. 7—3, by good stick work. Inability to hit with men on hags again proved our undoing. Dovers was put hack at short in this game. McXeal pitched in the Trinity game and held the visitors to three scattered singles, the Army winning, ;V 0. '1 his was the last game before the annual contest with the Navy. At this time the Academic Board saw fit to remove I'lloa and Day from the squad, so that our team went down to Annapolis deprived of the services of these men and of Riley. Teague, though not an outfielder, was put in left field and Hawrkamp in right for the big game. The Navy started off with two runs in the first inning, and in the second a succession of hits and errors gave them eight runs and cinched the game. Our men never had a chance to do anything while Douglass was in the Im x, but touched up Lamphicr, who succeeded him in the ninth, for three runs. Great credit is due to the Army nine for its game tight in the face of an overwhelming defeat.

Duyo and "Poe" Ayers were in the points for the New Yorkers, while Hvatt and Mount ford constituted the Army battery. With the score 1 I against in the ninth, two singles, a double, and Meyer's home run gave us four runs and the game. So ended the season of 1008, and in reviewing its record we must not forget the handicap under which the squad labored, owing to the graduation of two classes since the preceding season, and to the many obstacles wdiich arose to hinder the development of a winning team. Mount ford and the men under him are entitled to much credit for the way they worked in the face of these adverse conditions. Sammy Strang will coach the team of 1000 and "Herray” Meyer has been elected Captain. Every effort will he made to avenge last year’s defeat, and all that the team asks of the Corps is that they back them up with the same spirit of loyalty and fight which characterized the football season last fall.

That this call was heeded, and how well, is known to us all, for, in a fitting close to an entirely satisfactory season, during which we had won everything in which wc had been entered, the team came home victorious from the Intercollegiate Meet. In the past then- has seemed to he a tendency to extol the virtues of fencing, its value as an exercise, its importance as a sport and an effort to arouse interest in it. hut the mere fact that in it we meet tin- Navy, and that for a place on its team we bestow an "A.” arc sufficient evidences of its place in the Academy life. Then-fore we will pass at once to the record of the last season, a record of which wc may justly be proud, which tells far latter than would anything else of the perseverance and hard work of the team, lint first we will append a summary of the outcome of the Intercollegiate Meets in which we have participated in the past. YEAR FIRST 8ECOXI) Tiiian 1902 Army Columbia Navy 1908 Army Columbia Yale 1.901 Army Columbia Cornell 1905 Navy Army Columbia 190( Army I harvard Navy 1907 Navy Array Cornell 1908 Army Navy Cornell ) Columbia ) During these seven meets we have turned out five individual champions; Strong '01 tying for that honor in 1902 with Whittier of the Navy and Clarke of Columbia: Breckinridge ’OA and Honeycutt '01 tying for it in 190S with Clarke of Columbia; Honeycutt 01 winning it with a clean score in 1.001; and finally Williford ’0(i and Dickinson ’08 tying for it in 1 Since then the individual event has not l»ccn fenced off. but in 1907 Dickinson 'OS easily proved himself the champion by winning every one of his bouts in the meet. The season began with the winning of the Junior Team Foil Competition held by the French Y. M. C. A. of Brooklyn under the auspices of the Amateur Fencers' League of America. Each member of the team, composed of Dickinson '08. Sneed )8 and Sears ’() ). received a gold medal. This was the first time that the Army had participated in this event, which was not limited as most of our contests arc, to teams from the colleges, but included representatives from the New York Athletic Club. The New York Turn-Vcrcin, the Crescent Athletic Club and the Fencers' Club. The next event was the competition for the Manriquc Cup, a trophy presented by It. K. Manriquc for open competition among teams from the colleges and amateur clubs. Similarly, wc had never before been entered in this competition, but our team. — 1G8 —TmviooiM lowrrzER composed this time of Dickinson '08. Sears '09, and Greblc '09, was again successful. Cornell was second in a Held including teams from the New York Turn-Vcrein, the Fencers’ Club, the Mask and Foil. Yale. Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania. It is only necessary to win this cup twice—provided it be twice in succession—to hold it. so that the team this year will make a strong effort to turn the trick again. The early graduation of the class of 1908 threatened disaster to the team, in that bv it we lost the services of Sneed and Dickinson, the latter, the individual intercollegiate champion of the year before. But fortunately the threatened disaster failed to materialize, and a splendid team was turned out in spite of the handicap. Solilberg and Cocroft, both of the class of 1910, stepping into the empty places. The team for the season of 1908 (after Dickinson and Sneed of '08 had graduated) consisted of Scars, ’09. captain; Cocroft and Solilberg, 10; and the squad of Mills, manager; Hanna. Greble and Harding of '09; Strong, Dunn, V. K., and Garlington of 10; Hoisington. Nance, Darguc, Simpson, B. Y , and Byrne, C. L. of 'll. The team Scars, Solilberg and Coeroft- defeated Pennsylvania by a score of seven bouts to two in the meet held here on February 8th. and on February 1.9th l»eat Columbia by six bouts to three. On February 22d the team and several members of the squad were taken down to fence some practice bouts with the members of the New York Tiirn-Verein, where they were also most hospitably entertained at luncheon. It is hut titling to make mention here of the cordial relations existing between this organization and the Army fencers. Knelt season some of the club’s fencers make us a visit for the purpose of engaging in practice with us. and we are always welcome at their club house for the same purpose. The experience thus gained is naturally of great advantage to our team. On the 29th of February we defeated Yale by a score of six to three bouts. Greble taking Cocroft’s place on this occasion. On the 7th of March we blanketed Harvard by the score of nine bouts to none. In the elimination matches prior to the Intercollegiate Meet, we were put in the group with Princeton and Columbia but as Princeton forfeited we held no preliminaries. Will'll We went to New York we were opposed by the Navy. Cornell. Columbia. Yale and Harvard.- Pennsylvania and Massachusetts Tech, having been eliminated. The finals were highly sensational and hotly contested: in fact we had had a tussle with the Navy from the very opening of the meet, and the issue was undecided until the very last point. On the second evening we started even with the Navy, with twelve bouts each, Cornell third with ten, and Columbia fourth with eight. It was nip and tuck all the evening until the very last bout, when the Navy and our team were again at a deadlock with twenty-one bouts apiece, while Columbia and Cornell had finished, each with fifteen bouts to its credit. The deciding bout was fought by Burdick for the Navy and Solilberg for the Army. When, after the prescribed four minutes, the judges declared the Ixmt a tie. the two contestants resumed their positions for the extra period and with great care prepared to tight it out. This time Solilberg scored, and so secured the championship for his team and the Army. ___________________ Thonk you’ — I GO —rilE-lOOO-HOWITZ!

Some of the more important games crowded the gvin. almost to the danger point. The schedule—all college teams—was two games shorter than last year’s and considerably harder. Nevertheless the team made a much better showing than last year, winning nine games and losing three. Of the games lost, one was by a single point only, another by three points and the third, our worst defeat of the year, bv Princeton, occurred the day after we lost by graduation such old standbys as Iliglev (Captain), Johnson, T. J. and Kiting, lint our reconstructed team then covered itself with glory by finishing its season without another defeat,—winning decisive victories over such strong teams as Columbia and Harvard. The season opened with a one-sided victory over Manhattan, followed bv a close game with New York University, the Army losing by three points. Then came a rough and hard fought contest with the University of Pennsylvania, which — 173 —we lost in the last few seconds of play by one |M int. Trinity, Pratt, and Colgate were defeated in well-played, clean games, and then we met Wesleyan, reputed to be the strongest team in the Hast. The game was a struggle to the last instant of play and ended in our favor by one point. Massachusetts Institute of Technology was the last game for the 1.008 men on the team. and. very fittingly. resulted in a clean cut victory. Catron, Conard, and Surles filled the vacancies caused by graduation, and for its first game this team met Princeton and lost gallantly K) -82. But the tram got together with such good effect that a week later they outplayed Columbia 26- Hi, in the fastest game of the year, and then worsted I'ordham in an exciting contest, the result of which was in doubt until the whistle blew. The game with Harvard was the last of the schedule, the Crimson losing 12—86. And now, as in former years, the eternal question—why not play the Navy in basket ball? Both academies have strong teams, and meet the best college teams in the East. It is felt that their meeting would be of great interest, not only to the Corps, the Brigade, and the two Services, but also to the athletic world in general. Dec. I )cc. Dec. dan. dan. dan. I eb.

This left the field cleared for IPOP. 1910. and 1 1 1. The meet promised to he very close between !{)!() and I.OOp and it was supposed, as always, that 15) 1 I would spring some surprises. For several weeks the plain was alive with slightly clad figures, jumping, running and throwing weights under the supervision of Temple. It shows much class spirit for the men to work so hard for this meet, and much credit is due to them. The outdoor work would probably improve greatly if we could have dual meets with outside teams, particularly the N'avv. That this preliminary training was conscientious is attested by the fact that three new records were established. 1 )09 captured all of these records. Patton lowered his own time in the initial race of tint 220 yard hurdles from 27 2-3 to 2a 1-3 seconds. Besson won the hammer throw at IIP ft. 3 in. and raised this to 124 ft. f in. on throwing for record. Hayes, 1 , lowered his own record for the 220 yard dash from 22 1-3 to 22 seconds. One of the most exciting events of the day was the IK) yard run. It was nip and tuck all the way, and Burr and Carbcrry broke the tape together.

The interest shown, l» th by the Corps and the officers »n the Post, lias been in a large measure responsible for this success. The past season was an improvement over the preceding, the games being fast and exciting and the team showing very good team work. Out of the thirteen games scheduled the weather permitted seven to be played. The results were five victories and two defeats, thereby marking the season a success. 'Pile playing of Gordon. Beavers and Stunner was very good, and their loss bv graduation will be felt. However with Hayes, Besson, Clark. Rumbough, Parker. Purdon and several others left, besides some very promising new material, the prospects arc most bright. The team is deeply indebted to Idcut. G. M. Russell, the Athletic Association, and the authorities who have been most generous, doing all in their power to further the interests of hockey. The game is one that needs much hard work and constant practice in order to develop teamwork and this can never lx accomplished until a good rink is constructed where the team can have systematic practice. The Quartermaster Department has spared no pains in making good temporary rinks, which are of great assistance as long as the cold weather lasts, but which naturally become useless as soon as the water soaks through the soil and escapes. It is hoped that it will be possible, in the near future, to have a concrete rink which will enable the team to develop teamwork, thereby giving it the advantages in practice that other college teams possess.

On account of these adverse conditions little progress was made in the game until 1900 when some thirty ponies and a number of English saddles were purchased. Since that time polo has grown steadily in favor and each year has seen a larger number of sworn devotees of the sport. This is true in spile of the fact that no contests with visiting teams have been possible since 1908. Due to the early graduation of 1908. tin- succeeding class inherited the use of the ponies in the spring of their second class year. None but members of the two upper classes are allowed to play. and. in former years, the second classman’s elmnee to learn the game was limited to gaining what experience lie could on tin- mediocre ponies that remained after the first classmen were supplied. The game became popular with 1909 at once and a large squad turned out on the Wednesday and Saturday afternoons during tin; spring. This enthusiasm did not dwindle during the hot summer months, as the number of players was limited only by the number of available ponies. Preliminary work on the cavalry plain was followed by games on the target range, and toward tin- end of summer a cadet team was selected to play the officers. Two games were played, resulting in one victory for each team. The prospects for tin- sport this spring are exceedingly good as several new ponies have been purchased during the winter. The thanks of all those who take an interest in polo are due to Captain Oliver, whose patience and courtesy have done much to make the game a popular one. — 182 —TENNIS ______Mt JV TENNIS was more popular than ever, and the very urgent need of more courts was felt throughout the summer. The Athletic Council very kindly furthered the arrangements for the annual tournament, which was a great success.

We’re off! I. t no cynic proclaim that our march is as the area bird's— jroing. going, hut never getting anywhere. There lias been great progress in our efforts for a wrestling team. Our first step, electing Besson captain, and Mitchell manager, was a good one, for the latter finally succeeded in getting two training tables for the squad. Many thanks are due to Mr. Jenkins for his kind encouragement and enthusiastic aid. and to ( apt. Koehler for his earnest efforts in helping us to work for a wrestling team. This movement should he encouraged. It is admitted beyond question that no college in the country has a more experienced or more enthusiastic wrestling master than ours. When a Missourian wants "to he shown." lie retires satisfied after one of Tom's practical demonstrations. Moreover, our regular mode of living makes us good material while avoirdupois is not lacking, for our variety ranges from Poppy Weir's 200 pounds to Wen's 100. The interest in tin- sport is shown bv the fact that 3f men prepared daily for the preliminaries of the Indoor Meet. A little consideration will show that wrestling would aid greatly in developing material for our football team. The exercise is just what the line men need to make them muscular and quick, while the weights of the different classes do not bar the Iwieks and ends from competing for the team. The whole football team eon hi be given an excellent physical training before taking up the regular football work on the field, if wrestling received proper encouragement. We must have meets with other colleges!! This is the only incentive which will impel every one to turn out. and which will give wrestling the impetus necessary to carry it to a prominent place in Corps athletics. The finals in tin- wrestling tournament were decided on the night of the Indoor Meet. The results in the different classes were as follows: 135 pound Class-—Rader, ‘II. tied with Wai.i,, "11. 113 pound Class—Richards, H. H..

William II. Taft should l e inaugurated as President on March 1. I9 9, and whereas, their Senators and Representatives, in Congress assembled, after much objection and oratory, had granted the necessary appropriation for the transportation and subsistence of tin- United States Corps of Cadets, in order that the said cadets might participate in the above-mentioned inauguration, it was finally decreed, through proper military channels, that the Corps should absent itself from West Point for this purpose from 8 P. M., March 3d, to 3 A. M., March 5, 1909, ami that all academic duties should Ik suspended during that period (for which last boon we were duly grateful). Accordingly, we were entrained in a military manner on the evening of the third, in two sections composed of sleepers, with dining ears attached, ami started ofT most auspiciously for Washington. In addition to tin Corps, our aggregation comprised: the Band, Held Musicians, a few Cavalrymen, a detachment of the Hospital Corps, horses, and—Tacs. All went merrily until the outfit had reached a point south of Philadelphia, beyond which the storm, then raging, had destroyed telegraph communications and made rapid progress entirely out of the question. So the first section nosed its way along tin tracks in the vicinity of Baltimore, sending out pioneer detachments to remove tin obstructions in the foreground. 'Flic gmxl train would heave forward a few feet and then settle down tranquilly for half an hour’s wait. There were times when it scarcely made ten yards in three downs. Without exceeding any of the speed limits existing within the State of Maryland, we succeeded in arriving at the National Capitol about 1:3( P. M., on the fourth. We disembarked immediately and tramped through snow and water to the line of march of the Inaugural Parade. It was already under way, but near the Capitol we swung into the middle of the column and marched along Pennsylvania Avenue toward the White House. We were formed in column of platoons, which overlapped the cleared space in tin middle of the avenue, to the great embarrassment — 187 —of tin men on tin- Hanks. In front of the White House was the President's reviewing stand, and a short distance beyond, the parade was reviewed by the Grand Marshal, Major General .1. Franklin Bell, I’. S. A. Many of the organizations scheduled to participate were prevented by the blizzard from reaching Washington. The elements also reduced the number of spectators, but the crowds present were generous in their applause. After the Parade the Battalion was marched to Hauscher’s, where we were served to an excellent luncheon as the guests of the United States Senators, Briggs and DuPont, both graduates of the Military Academy. Those cadets having relatives in the city were then given their liberty, while the rest of the Corps went back to the train. Everybody was required to be aboard at 8 P. M.. but we didn't pull out until after midnight, when, with all present or accounted for. except Sir Isaac Newton Chen, we started back for that dear old West Point. We were due to arrive there at 3 A. M., at which time we wen- actually engaged in passing through Baltimore. Breakfast was served at ten, in Philadelphia, and. without further adventure both sections reached their “Highland home” by 8 P. M.. thereby In-ating the Academic Board out of half a day’s work. The Corps was admirably treated on this trip by the officers in charge, and those who knocked lustily beforehand, were generally ready to admit on their return that the trip was not half as big a soiree as it might have been. LIEl'TEN ANT COLONEL FREDERICK W. SIBLEY, COMMANDANT OF CADETSThe Corps A toast given in the Mess Hall on New Year's, 1909, by John H. Lee. “Men ok the Coups,— “One more page of this Academy’s record is done; how well or how poorly it becomes that record, we are not here to decide. That page is now joined with a hundred and more, that lie beyond our power even to consecrate. Those deeds and their results have cost the lives of our Nation’s and this Academy’s truest sons, whose sacrifice is a consecration, the splendor of which we can neither brighten nor dull. "There is, however, one thing that lies within our power to seize, to hold, to use, to strengthen—it is the spirit that led those men. So closely has this spirit come down to us and entered our lives that we are apt to forget that a thousand, yea, five thousand heroes, the light of whose deeds has shone the world over, whose spirit was the back lionc of the noblest nation of this earth—these men once held the places that we now hold. Hack through the mists of a century runs a line of gray-clad hearts that beat as one. and throughout its length, branching into all paths of life, went the numlx rs of this institution’s no less loyal sons, whose hearts beat the same rhythm, although they left prematurely or not to wear the Army Blue. The cadence of these hearts is the same that strikes against the breast of each cadet here to-day, if he loves his Alma Mater. And so, men, I give you the spirit of the Old West Point, which is the spirit of the present West Point—the spirit of the eternal West Point; for while this spirit finincs, this Academy lives, and while this fire burns in the souls of a thousand of her sons, this noble Nation need never fear. “What and where is this spirit to-davr It is the strength of this Academy— that which makes our theories and ideals facts, not ideas. It is tin- fundamental basis of each part of our motto. ‘Duty, Honor, Country,—West Point.’ “What is Duty without the- true spirit of sacrifice, the very essence of our 'esprit de corps?’ Without this sacrifice, Duty becomes a curse. How we detest a man who skins another for the purpose of his own rising, or the man who will take advantage of his official position to square a personal grudge. The spirit there is lacking. Hut how we admire the fair minded disciplinarian who controls his men through squareness, who would skin one man as quickly as another for that discipline lie feels it his duty to hold; who will give personal satisfaction and hold no grudge. Then on the other hand the spirit of Duty shows up in the file who takes his punishment like a man. in contrast to tin fellow who is always crying almut getting ‘gigged;’ instead of facing tin- straight proposition of living up to the law, lie wants to be allowed to slide along the easy path, greased with the milk of human kindness. “In recitations, lioning and class standing, this spirit shows. Who can help but admire the man who goes through here with a purpose, who Imiiics his tenths by making good and has the nerve to keep it up? He’ll help any other man he can ami makes his own standing by worth. After all, that’s what we came here for. But when the spirit is lacking, the man gets self-centered and mean; he won’t give time to help a 'goat;' he hates the file who got his scalp last week; and never loses an opportunity to stay back after recitation to cry aliout the tenths he lost. We all hate a man like that because he has lost the spirit of the place. — 1S9 —“Yes, tin men we love are tile men who carry out this idea of clean work and sacrifice: the man who takes a season's licking on tin 'scrubs’ without knocking or crying about unfairness; the man who, when given a duty to perform, does it well.—doesn’t try to ’dead-beat’ and run it on his picket commander; but does his best and sees the good in others rather than saying the hard working file is just ‘boning quill;’ and the man who sits up nights with a bunch of ‘goats’ and pulls them through, or at least tries. Yes; we all love and admire manhood like that because the Duty is backed by the right spirit. “There are some things that a man feels it a sacrilege to discuss openly, such as his mother's character. I.ike this stands Corps Honor—inviolate, a sacred heritage. But, men. I would drive this thought home. In the hurry of this life take a few moments now and then to think about this Honor. In the quiet of the woods thrash out some question in your mind and realize what this standard means. Do this lest your conceptions become dulled; arouse yourself to the sacredness of this Honor, so that vour spirit shall lie a flaming avenger as well as a firm defender of this trust. “Spirit lies behind Duty and Honor; what is it to our Country? Does the mere fact that we are memlicrs of a commonwealth of eighty millions make us loyal? No; I say it is the spirit of this people, what they have sacrificed and stood for. that ties us together and gives us our intense patriotism. Why does the Yankee yell sink terror into the hearts of every foe. Spaniard, Moro, Englishman, or whoever stands or flees before it? It is the soul of this whole country, tin spirit of it; it is the deep-sprung impulse of Fight! Fight! Fight! Then when tin fight is over and darkness lays a pall over death and defeat, this deep American spirit turns into the tenderness that makes her son give the last drop in his canteen to his dying foe, take off his coat for a pillow that his conquered enemy may die in peace. That is the spirit which after four years of bloodshed forgave and forgot, and sons of a reunited nation clasped warm hands, looked straight into each other’s eyes and said ‘You fought well.’ While that spirit lasts this Nation lives. “Ever since its birth, this Academy has stood for the highest things in life, and has never stood for anything mean or low. Here in the rock-ribbed hills these old gray walls have withstood all the storms of nature, physical and human, and the walls have stood firm. To-day as yesterday they hold the purpose of it all—the Corps. This IhkIv of men once begun has never censed to exist, and God grant it may never cease to exist. We want the spirit of the past and the present to flow into each heart that wears our gray, keeping while here, the Corps, its ideals, its honor ever first in mind. No personal, class, or party feelings should exist for a single moment, if they at all darken the united spirit of tin Corps. Well nigh every West Pointer has a West Point ring. How many wear it correctly? Which is the right way? Why this,—On one side is the Corps crest, on the other the crest of his class. He should so wear it that every time he looks at that ring, the first to meet his eye shall be the crest of tin Corps, ever second that of his class. "Men, there must In a firm bond and a union to live and to succeed. This needs no discussion hen—it is a fact established by all history. We only want to realize its importance—and how is this union to he held here? By Corps Spirit, yes, by Corps Spirit. "How then is this necessary Corps Spirit to live? I tell you it is only through — 190 —deeds, work, sacrifice. Do von remember the story told us men in chapel about the man who couldn’t learn to love bis poor crippled sister-in-law. He bated her. So he began doing for her, caring for her, sacrificing for her; and lie learned to love her. So, men. it is with ns. We can’t learn to love the Corps, the Academy, unless we do something for her. I.ove for the Corps, our Alma Mater, is so closely grafted into spirit that they arc one. Yes, Corps Spirit and love for the Corps are one and must lx- feed by deeds. Deep in the heart of every true son of this place there is that love, for lie has done things for her and has sacrificed things to be worthy of her name; and the more sacrifice, the better the deed, the deeper the love, and grander the spirit. Every man who has been here wants to leave the Academy some better for his having lived. If this spirit is burning brightly this duty will find him out. It may be great; it may be small. It may be athletics; it mav be helping out some other man in trouble; it may l e crushing down a temptation to commit an act in uniform that would bring discredit on this Academy. Whatever his call may be the spirit being there—the call will be heard and his commission carried out. “Men. we take no spirit from Yale,—we take no fellowship from Princeton, we take no ideals from Harvard, we take no nerve from the Xavy. WE have the stuff right here. Sitting here together are four hundred men. who on the vital things of life, think and act as one. Then, whenever the name of this Academy is balanced against that of any other institution in athletics, in anything, or whenever our country is matched against any foreign foe, then preserve this unity, foster this spirit, preserve this fight. Oh, men, keep this unity, keep this spirit, keep this fight, fight, fight." CONSTITUTION ISLANDCAST ANI CHORUS OF TIIF. PKKTEXDEKOl)c Jpreteatar A MtlfilCAl.

Everts t ■ THE Hundredth Night Show was given on the 27th of Echrunry for the edi-| fication of the Corps and tile nniuscincnt of their friends and relatives. The JIL | l«v, a musical comedy, “The Pretender." was produced under the direction of Oscar Haninicrstcin Everts, whose efforts and talents, combined with those of George Ade Harding, made it the artistic production that it was. The scene opens with a chorus of drawoids on our old familiar stamping ground. Trophy Point, and Otto von Erlenbergor. Crown Prince of Bavaravia, is introduced lo tile audience. The arrival of his sister. Hilda, and her friend. Beverly, with a crowd of Vassar girls livens up the action. When they have departed for Flirtation, the- Mecca of all our fair visitors, Charlemagne der Crosse enters in search of Otto. The scene between Otto and Baron von Gumstiek brings out the serious condition of affairs in Bavaravia. Nix. as Baron von Gumslick, made a big hit with his audience from the very start. Tile second act transfers the action to the wilds of Bavaravia and discloses the stronghold of Ratskv the Red. Hciucckc took the part of the outlaw chief, and his “Song of the Carbine” was very good. Hustling Lizzie, the tender and affectionate wife of Ratsky, appears on the scene. Moss, who took this part, impersonated well “she who must be obeyed.” Jerry and Billy, who have bee« touring Europe in the “Agony.” an automobile of unknown make and questionable efficiency, arc suddenly hurled from their machine upon the stage, and as promptly captured bv the mer ecnary Ratsky. Soon afterwards Hilda and Beverly, accompanied by the Baron.arc brought in by the bloodthirsty Hulbul. liatsky's trusty lieutenant. The Hul-Iml's imitntions of two of our friends brought down the house. A competition in dancing between Salome. Ratsky's daughter, ami Heverly and Hilda gives Parker. Chase and Milling an opportunity to bring on some of the best dancing ever seen on a Hundredth Night stage. Then Otto falls captive to Ratsky’s band, and by the way of disclosing his identity sings “Otto of Roses." the song hit of the evening. The act ends with a burlesque on our practice march lectures. The last act discloses the royal palace of Havaravia. Captain Kiki Marks with his guards opens up the act with a zouave drill. which received well-merited up plause. Jerry next appears and corrupts two members of the guard for future use. Then Hilly and Heverly enter and Hilly sings "Sunhonnct Sue." during which Heverly does a bit of feminine posing that would he creditable to a professional actress. The Inxlyguard and the Huron now occupy the stage, followed by Ciustavus I., von Hlitis, the Pretender himself, in the shape of our old friend, Coles. His imitation of our late lamented majesty was the best of the performance. The plot thickens when Jerry appears, disguised as Crown Prince Otto, in order to hold the throne for Otto until he can either escape or else lu ransomed from tin- bandits, who hold him captive. Jerry keeps the lid on, in spite of innumerable difficulties, until the arrival of tin- real Otto, and all ends happily. M a I veil, as Jerry, did some very good acting in this last scene and throughout the play. Moore and Sherman seem destined for lending parts in the next show, while Colley. Matheson, and Aclier took care of minor parts in a way that made us regret that they did not hove more to do. Of those who so nobly sacrificed themselves on the altar of Art by enduring an evening in corsets and petticoats, we cannot speak too highly. Chase and Milling as Heverly and Hilda mode splendid leading ladies and the "Sunhonnct Sue” chorus is a close second to the famous Plorodora Sextette. lu connection with an account of the Hundredth Night Show we desire to mention our indebtedness to Mr. Hasil Savidge. whose assistance has been in a great measure responsible for the success of this, as of previous, performances.OTTO VON ERLKNBKRGER.

WHAT was perhaps the first West Point "hop” was given on May 31. 1782, as a tribute to our French allies, when the birth of the Dauphin of France was royally celebrated at the post. The troops were paraded, salutes of cannon and musketry were fired, a banquet followed by toasts was served, and the evening was brought to a dose with a stately minuet. The old chronicle runs thus: "His Excellency General Washington . . . attended the ball in the evening, and with a dignified and graceful air. having Mrs. Knox for a partner, carried down a dance of twenty couples in the Arbor on the green grass."

().. ’10 Assistant Librarian Hoisington, ’ 11 The real "predecessor” of the C hristian Association in the Corps was the class conducted in the early sixties by General (). (). Howard, then a cadet, which was known as "Howard’s Prayer Meeting." and which, in time, culminated in the present V. M. (’. A. The Association was officially formed April II. 1880. The object of the society is "to promote among the men of the Corps the principles of right thinking, right speaking, right acting, as shown in the life of Jesus Christ; to increase Christian fellowship in the Corps; and to staid active Christian men into the Army.’’ In the words of one of its Presidents, the Association "has for its aim the advancement and carrying out of all projects for the pleasure or help of the Corps, in any way whatsoever, and, especially, to afford some opportunity for voluntary Christian endeavor." Following this policy, the Association had to sacrifice some of its sacred services for those which, though not sacred, might he helpful and instructive to the men who attendee] them. Speakers were gotten to talk on such subjects as the Panama Canal, war in India, frontier life, etc., and. on each occasion, the Hall was so full that there was hardly standing room. Membership in the society may In either active or associate, and is open to any cadet. There is no distinction as to religious belief or sect, nor are there any restrictions as to classes. 'Pile "plebe" is just as welcome, and has just the same privileges as the First Classman, with the exception that during Camp, the upper classmen only are allowed the privileges of the V. M. C. A. Tent. The Meetings arc held on Sunday evenings from (5:15 to 7:15 P. M.; tin former Wednesday evening meeting has had to be given up on account of the later supper-hour. During the first part of this year tin Association was still in old Kendrick Hall, but, after changing temporarily to the Dialectic, it is now in its attractive new quarters in North Barracks. In Bibb Study the book on "Life Problems” was taken as a guide because it seemed the most practical course that could be followed here. Many of the leaders were able to make their lessons so interesting that a number of men not enrolled in the classes entered into discussions about various subjects. Japan was the subject of a short course in Mission Study during Camp; both this and the Bible Classes had large enrollments, and might be called fairly successful. Other work in which the Y. M. C. A. has been engaged is the Sunday School for the children of the Post; the Association Heading Room, which sends papers and periodicals to the Cadet and Soldiers’ hospitals; and the Y. M. C. A.

This opportunity is taken to thank Lieutenant Fenton for his much appreciated work for the Association, in his able leadership of the leaders’ class; and, also, to thank Mr. Andrews for his kindly interest, sympathy, and friendship, and for the help he has rendered the Association, not only during the past year, but for many years. — 202 —The Nortbfield Conference Iii tilt latter part of June tile North field delegation from West Point left for tin- Conference of College Men. at Nortlitield. Massaeliusetts. It was eomposed of seven men from the First Class—Achor, Brice, Devers, Greblc, Lee, Mountford, and Stearns: and five from the Third Class Dargue. Franke. Gildart. Iloisington, and Reineeko. Arriving at the grounds in the evening after a long hot day in the train, we were cheered bv the? sight of the Connecticut River flanked bv cool, green hills, with here and there strolling groups of tanned, hcalthy-looking college men. The Conference started the next day. each delegation dividing its mcmls-rs among the Bible, Student Mission, and lectures. These, with the morning service in the Auditorium, filled the forenoon. The afternoon was taken up by athletics, or walks about the country. From seven until nine thirty in the evening, came the impressive sunset .service on Round Top and the Auditorium service. Delegation mel tings filled the remainder of the time. The Delegates were addressed by such men as Mr. Mott. Mr. Speer, Mr. Bates. Hugh Black, and Mr. Fosdick, on every phase of Christian life. Taking it all in all, it is about the most pleasing, interesting, and helpful ten days that one can spend anywhere. The athletics included baseball, track, and tennis. In the first. West Point was defeated by Vale in an interesting game; in the track events she tied with Williams for fourth place. On the evening of the Fourth, a celebration was held in the Auditorium which few who attended it will ever forget. F.aeh of the hundred and tliirtv odd delegations having more than three representatives, gave their college song and yell, and when the cheers for the President and King F.dward were given and our National Hymn was sung, every man shared the spirit that was back of them, and was glad and proud to feel that he Ik1 longed to the country whose youth was there represented. TIIK ASSOCIATION HALL — son —Officer? President—Everts Librarian—Dargue l °r a number of years, there has been no organized musical club in the Corps. I he color line concerts in camp have been more or less impromptu, and their programmes, though very popular, have been utipretentious and anything but classical. Any musical talent or ability has found an outlet either in the Hundredth Night or, possibly, in the choir. The early graduation of the class of l )()8 prevented the presentation of the annual Hundredth Night Play last year. During the winter afternoons, usually spent in rehearsing it, a few mandolin orchestra pieces were practised. These practises culminated in an informal concert given in the Y. M. ('. A. Hall one Sunday evening.- an attempt so successful that it was determined to elaborate the programme and give a concert in Culhim Hall. The concert was given during the first part of March and was enthusiastically received by the music-loving Corps. The interest it aroused encouraged the formation of the organization now known as the Glee Club. The plan, as first conceived, was to make the club a branch of the Dialectic Society, which, as a literary society, is no longer an active factor in Cadet life. However, as the Dialectic Hall still fills a certain want as a reading room, this plan was discarded. Under the advice of Dr. Holden, a set of regulations was drawn up to govern an entirely separate body. These regulations were approved by the superintendent, ami the Dialectic piano was transferred to the old Y. M. C. A. Hall, which was given over as a meeting room to the Glee Club, and dubbed with the most dignified title of "Mendelssohn Hall." Shortly before camp the second concert was given for the benefit of the Army Relief Society. After painstaking practise, a very creditable performance of the programme below was given, and the Glee Club was fittingly launched as an organization of the Corps. May it long survive and prosper. — 204 —Program C oncert given by the Glee Club of the Corps of Cadets, for the Army Relief Society, Octolier 24, 1908, in Memorial Mall. 1.

Thus the “Howitzer'' delivers two kind of volleys,■—the matter of fact, serious shots, and the curving random shafts of humor. Of these, the latter are perhaps the more effective, for our daily routine is so crowded with the serious that we welcome the hmgh that relieves the situation. Therefore, let no man wince if he happens to he wounded by a bursting bomb or two,—fired not in earnest, but in jest. This volume marks the decennial of the “Howitzer” in its present form. 1‘ormerly it consisted of a small pamphlet of jokes, read as an introduction to the Hundredth Night performance, —now it constitutes the record, the monument, however unworthy, which each class leaves behind it. and moreover takes the place of the time honored class album in preserving to each member of the class some of his dearest memories. We wish to thank most sincerely Colonel (ionion. Reverend Herbert Shipman. Mr. Wallace Irwin, Mr. Merle Johnson and Mr. Clarence Underwood for their much-appreciated contributions. Acknowledgments are also due to the Century Company, the Pictorial News Company, the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin and Hacselcr, of Philadelphia, for several of the photographs reproduced. This year the Board tried the plan of offering prizes (very modest ones, to be sure) to those, not memlnTs of the lioard, who should contribute the best drawings, photographs, and verses. We are indebted to many for their contributions. Conditions make it impossible to make awards on the basis planned, of the “most humorous drawing,' etc. Flynn deserves the first place for bis drawings, while the work of Wclty, Floyd, and Baelir has been much appreciated, as has that of Hcrk-ness, Franklin, and Smith. C. M„ in the literary department. For much that is good, but which space would not make room for, for ideas and suggestions, the Board has to thank its many friends. Whatever commendation it may deserve is due to the fact that all have “pulled together” and done their best to produce a volume that should be true to. and worthy of. the Academy. — 200 —EdHor-in-Chief GODFREY Howitzer Board Hus incss Manager MCGEE Associate Editor HARDING Art LEE GAGE NIX DELANO WILDHICK GARLINGTON Assistant llusiness Manager RICH HDSd.N Managing Editors Art Editors BESSON Literary HARRINGTON PARKER Literary Editors VAN DEU8EN, O.

Hut Honest .John, he gives commands, the drivers know the drill, The horses tear around the plain to do our Captain’s will. The yearlings hug their limber, and the first class bounce like hell. For artillery plugs and caissons can't be ridden very well. The command is “Left Wheel, Gallop," you should .see the horses run, The flank piece skids along the ground, the yearlings call it fun; They sometimes have to hold on tight, but never do they fear. Vet you often hear them blaspheme, when it comes to "Action Rear." "Range sixteen hundred forty, corrector thirty-two." The yearling gunner ties it up just like I used to do. But it doesn't make much difference, for our Captain doesn’t know. So we fire at will a round or two, and then away we go. Hut always in the month of June, at exhibition drills. Light battery is turned over to a bloomin' lot of quills; They chase the pieces round the plain; the drill is all a fake; (Don't mind my envious statements, for. you see. I’m not a "make.") Now if we e’er see service, and it's probable we will; And if perchance we should be called a captain's place to fill, Wc may forget our drill regs when a tight is really on. But we won’t forget the principles we got from Honest John. __• • • _II. Cavalry "Boldly they rode and melt” I was when we all were yearlings that we first began to ride. Ami most of ns have been policed, however hard we tried. Hot "eve improved a lot since then, as any one can see. And if we ain't good riders, God knows we ought to be. “Lean back! Hold tight! Turn your horses hrrr. If you dare to cut the corners, on 11 he numbered with the mourners. W hose ( hristmas leaves are postponed for a year.” And when we reach our first class year we go out on the plain; We have a class in drill regs which most drives us all insane. Some one explains a movement; the rest all go to sleep; And the way that Gee Dawg crawls us would make tin angels weep. “Fours right. Fours left. Column half right. Wake up and pay attention. Or you’ll all get special mention On tin skin list that comes out to-morrow night.” But when G. Henry takes the drill to show us how it’s done. We go a tearing up and down, the horses at a run; It surclv is exciting and I have a sneaking notion. That I will take the Cavalry in spite of slow promotion. "Bight turn. Left turn,—” round and round we go. The dust may almost blind us. And Old Gee Dawg cuss behind us. But that’s tin kind of drill wc like, if you should like to know. — 223 —III. lof otry "Down in the infantry nnhodi cares." Kiri.ixo. Artillery 1 rilI is pretty goad; Cavalry is fine; P. M.

And then you get to piping, which isn’t very queer. The captain sounds off some command that you don't chance to hear. Perhaps the words are indistinct, of course it's not your fault. What lie said was "double time;’’ you do "battalion halt. Then out speaks our commander, for there's nothing he don t see: “Report that man for carelessness,” and points at you. or me.

The mobilization of the class of 1JMMJ occurred about tile time Raineses II. be nn to reign in Egypt, in the year One of our late Com. The memory of that first taste of military pomp and circumstance may be dimmed, but never forgotten. Like all preceding and succeeding classes, we underwent more harrowing experience during our "Roast barracks" than any of those preceding or succeeding classes ever endured in theirs. We were the last class to receive our welcome at the hands of the yearling corporals and. whatever the arguments against this method may lie. it had the beneficent effect of teaching us. in the minimum amount of time, our utter non-importance. Tlie hardships of plebe year need no expanding. It suffices to say that we emerged diminished in numbers, hut with a feeling that we had passed through our ordeal by fire, and thereby stood better prepared to face whatever the future might have in store. II. Yearling Year ”The past wan goodly once, a ml yet when all is said, The best we know of it, is that it's gone and dead.” The summer of 1R 7 saw us proudly wearing our first service stripe and enjoying tin- much-piped yearling camp. What if it wasn't all that we had hoped for? We had our fun and even the frowns of authority, though they dampened, could not destroy that light-heartedness which is characteristic of all yearlings, fresh from the restrictions of plebedom. Camp Illumination was a rousing success and was followed by our “Yearling ’Gamp.” That was by far the most enjoyable part of the summer for us. and doubtless our welcome to the returning First Class lacked some of the enthusiasm with which we cheered their departure. Yearling Autumn, like Massachusetts, needs no encomium. In that busy season one has other things than encomiums to perplex the brain. The black disaster of an Army defeat by the Navy makes the memory of those days still more dismal, and the loss of seven of our classmates at Christmas time completed the unpleasant record. The new year dawned with a bright outlook. Studies were neglected and the — 225 —young man's fancy lightly turned to thoughts of Furlough. We assembled at the Battery to sing our Furlough songs almost, before the snow melted. No one took the B. S. course seriously and the last few weeks of yearling year were spent in one blissful FURLOUGH pipe, broken only by the Jamestown Imposition, which commemorated a syr ad ok bkasts the tirst naval expedi- tion ever undertaken by tin Corps of Cadets. During that voyage on the Sunnier, even such old salts as Horace Fuller and Queen I.il Lyman succumbed to the ravages of the "multitudinous seas;" but much of the ill feeling which that ill-starred craft justly deserves at our hands has boon obliterated by the memory of the days that followed. III. Second Class Year "Summer smiles hut summer goes, .hut winter waits behind it We returned from Furlough as "student officers." The new status lasted for about two days when the same old “skins” from the “Taos” showed us that we were "student officers” only in lectures and figures of speech. During the succeeding months, we met and absorbed (or n gr at deal of information about Mechanics. Sound and Light, and all that motlcv crew of arts and sciences which In-long to the Chirm.

Preparations for the early graduation of 1908 gave rise to more or less excitement; but when the 11th came, and we said good bve to the men of the First Class, wc felt that, in losing the fellowship of our predecessors, we had given up more than wc had gained in privileges by their departure. mom: bkastsI V.

With new privileges we received new responsibilities. The fact that we entne to our inheritance before our time, did not find us unprepared to face the new issues nor loath to try our hand. Many a knotty problem was decided as we sat "in congress assembled" within the now desolate walls of the First Classmen’s Club. In April, we took the annual trip to the Metropolitan Art Museum, under the direction of the Department of Drawing. Mere we studied intelligently the "Portraits” of Hals and Rembrandt, openly admired “The Sower, and stood aghast Kt'IM.Ot'Cll BANQI’ET before the glories of "The Whale Ship.” In the evening we attended ButTalo Hill's Show, at tin invitation of Colonel Cody. This happy combination of business and pleasure made the trip lx»th entertaining and useful, and the consideration of those who had us in charge was appreciated by all. About this time, our trio of great astronomers—Dr. Moss, Dr. Ford, ami Copernicus Simpson lagan to startle tin- scientific world with their new and original theories as to the present condition and ultimate destination of the stellar universe. All were promptly admitted to the Royal Academy, where Abe gave them the advanced instruction which their aptitude demanded.

First Class Carop “() temporal 0 Mores!" We now come to a period wliicli was perhaps the most eventful of our history. On June 12th the class of I « 10 left on their Furlough and the rest of the Corps moved to Camp Huger. The days which followed were full of I . M. K., Coast Artillery. Infantry Target Practice, and all that “mis-believing and black horde” of drills which torment the souls of First Classmen and Yearlings. We need not A IMt ACTICA 1. TACTICAl. I.KCTCHK — i28 —dwell upon this subject, except to mention the fact that established a new record ill rille practice; for. though practical instruction took up a large' part of the time, wc nevertheless found opportunity to introduce a few original numbers into the schedule which our guardians had so thoughtfully prepared. Camp Huger was an Age of Brew. Kach company bad its tub and its generous supply of lemons ami sugar, which was constantly being replenished from the outer world . Kvery desert of n company street had an oasis in its laundry tent, and there wc congregated after drill, to wash the dust ot the Cavalry Plain from our parched throats. Camp Huger was hardly well under way. however, when an event occurred which had tar-reaching consequences. In the early morning of the Fourth of July, a numlx-r of patriots crept from their warm cots to celebrate the birth of the nation with noise and tin-. This affair was regarded by the authorities as a serious offense. HOP MAXAOKU8 The offenders, or at least those who were found out. received a punishment which caused them t« miss an entire football season, and the First Classmen’s Club was closed. Marti upon this jarring state of affairs came the hazing investigation. The daily press seized eagerly upon, and exaggerated, every report that came from the investigating committee. This produced a wave of public sentiment which swept over the country, and no paper was so pressed for space that it could not lift its voice in behalf of the oppressed generation of Fourth Classmen, who desired such action as little as did the rest of the Corps. We regret exceedingly this storm of criticism from those who know so little of the circumstance's of which they write so eloquently; for. colored though many know it to be, nevertheless it hurts our Alma Mater in the- eyes e»f the Nation. The investigation cost us eight men, two of them First Classmen. Fite revival of what now Sea'ins to be a re-lie e»f the- past cost us elear. T i r_n _ OOI) _PORT WRIGHT DAYSVI.

Upon our arrival, after a pleasant allday voyage, we march-the cami bv Tint ska cd to tiie camp already prepared for our occupation. Some, eager for a salt hath, tempted the Fates and promptly set forth for the bathing I»each in the dark. That first swim in the ocean was taken in the midst of « combined landscape and marine scene that resembled more than anything else, primeval chaos. The next day we discovered a better place, and thereafter two salt plunges a day were included in the program. So many day and night drills during the first three days almost smothered the sparks of coast artillery sentiment among those who, for obvious reasons, desire a first lieutenancy as soon as j ossil lc after the ceremony. This hard work, however, l ore fruit in the target practice which we had toward the end of our stay. The practice with the ten-inch battcrv resulted in five hits out of six shots, while the six-inch made eight hits out of ten. The work with the fifteen-pounder was equally good, and we feel justly proud of the records of our different detachments. The hours of freedom were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Some found the greatest joy in the ocean: others preferred the "Monotonous Inn;” and still others assiduously sought the company of the fair sex. which was present in great numbers. Hops and receptions were legion, and even those ham.mi.no tiik IO-incii no. 1. of us who cure least for such functions responded nobly to tInhospitable invitations which were showered upon us. On Saturday morning we embarked once more upon the General Meigs and made our return trip to the stirring slogan: "It was raining in the morning And the afternoon was wet.” — 231 —VII. First Class Year “Xott morituri tr saint am us." The practice umrcli over, we returned to barracks and settled down to tile last epoch «»f our history. Since September we have delved into the barren depths of Ordnance and drunk from the living fountain of the Law. In three months wr have become master of all that pertains to the .science of Civil Engineering; books on tactics, held fortifications, and various and sundry campaigns of the world's great captains melt before' us. Great, indeed, is our knowledge of all things military. It is said that Georgic Patton has compiled for future generals, a rule for winning any battle under any combination of circumstances. And now tin time for graduation draws near and our history will soon be complete. We have hist in membership one third of our original number. The loss of Rossell. Weaver, Fletcher and Pendleton in our First Class year has been especially regretted by all. As a class, we have made mistakes, some of which we have remedied. Since our ascendancy we have tried to emphasize Corps rather than Class spirit, yet the ties of friendship within our own class are none the less strong because of this. Under our leadership the Corps has been united with no petty inter-class feeling to destroy harmony and hinder accomplishment. This made possible the enthusiasm which helped carry our team to victory last fall and which, we hope, will carry our fencing and baseball teams to like victories. “Something ere the end. Some work of noble note, may yet lie done." Let us strive to make our year of victories complete. Let us work with the Corps for the ideals for which the Corps stands. May our deeds and our spirit lie such that we will go forth to face the future, prepared “to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield."

Club The following order is published before the Hattalion after any Sunday dinner, or at any other time when one of the “representative members” of the class has nothing to do: “Second classmen are wanted in the Club for a few minutes, immediately after breaking ranks. It is important that every man be there.” In humble oliedience to the above, the rank and tile assemble, expecting to elect a United States senator. After all have taken their regular scats on top of the billiard tables and elsewhere, Grcblc locks the door and announces that the meeting has been called to elect a Vice-President of the Dialectic Society. The spoonoids attempt to climb out of the windows but are forcibly detained. The other members of the class relapse hopelessly and prepare to spend the afternoon as comfortably as possible. The meeting proceeds strictly according to parliamentary law as understood at West Point. (Jreble raps for order. “Fellows, Godfrey will say a few words respecting the duties of the said important office.” Godfrey responds promptly, and, in a brief talk lasting half an hour, he tells the class what the Dialectic Society could accomplish if it hail an efficient vice-president. As he closes amidst a profound and respectful silence, an impatient spoonoid moves that the nominations be made. Not so fast. Mr. Spoonoid! Stearns has ”n few words” to say on this subject and Flirtation will keep. Stearns begins with the regular formula. "Fellows, I haven’t very much to say but I would like to emphasize what Godfrey has said”— and in a glowing oration In- proceeds to tell of the former glory of tin- Dialectic Society ami proposes that we revive that former glory by electing an efficient vice-president.

Ord moves that the vice-president In- appointed, and then attempts to speak on the prospects for a rifle team to compete against the Navv. lie is silenced with difficulty. Hut a new field for discussion has been opened and all hope of finishing tin- business before parade vanishes. A heated discussion follows. Erlcnkotter makes a mental note to the effect that, in the future, gags will be provided for such an emergency as the present. Dr. Moss then rises and, without waiting to 1h- recognized, begins: "Gentle- men. I want to sav a few words to you with reference to getting up a pistol and sabre team to compete with the Pcekskill Military Academy. This is a phase of military work and should not be neglected. I am sure that every man here would be glad to give up his spare time to such a noble purpose.” The doctor takes his seat amidst thunderous applause.

He proposes a compromise to the effect that two vice-presidents be chosen, one of whom shall 1m- elected and the other, appointed. His motion is met with ridicule. It is defeated when put to vote and Granip retires to nurse an injured dignity. Greble now remcmlicrs that the nominations are still open and announces that fact. Krlenkotter rallies his loyal “bucks,” who persuade him to run for office. It is decided that in order to better express the will of the class there shall be four ballots. The voting proceeds and in due course of time one of the candidates is elected. The "conscript fathers" issue pale and wan from the senate chamber in time to dress for parade. Two days later Greble assembles the second classmen once more, and, after locking the door, declares the former ballots null and void and announces that another election will be held immediately. •Cicero A A elodraro2v in Thr Acts Why is tIk Hoy rushing around so madly, grabbing clothes from everybody’s locker?

Closer and closer came the painted devils. Now lie felt the hot breath of Red Tomahawk, the Apache chieftain, on the back of his neck. Crack! Red Tomahawk bit the dust and the clear strains of a cavalry bugle were wafted from behind a ridge half a mile away. The Indians turned and fled, while from behind a ridge rode Gcorgic Copeland St. .lames Pebble, carrying his rifle ready for a counter attack. "Where is the cavalry?” exclaimed the President, dismounting from bis exhausted horse. ■’Here." said St. .lames, smiling ami tapping the bugle-which hung at his side. "My boy, you will some day be a great soldier." said the President, clasping bis hand.

All West Point heroes are first thrown in with an unmilitary room-mate. Our hero was no exception. The utter depravity of Benny Brazier as regards all things military was a source of constant mortification to St. James, whose soldierly bearing and respectful way of dragging in his chin promptly won the admiration of all the corporals.

Constantly lie waited for the opportunity to show that he was made of the same military stuff as Napoleon Bonaparte and Skinny Wainwright. At last the chance came. The corporal who was drilling our hero’s squad one day stepped into Execution Hollow ami broke his neck. All the squad with the exception of St. James witnessed this catastrophe with a mixed feeling of horror and satisfaction. Not so with Copeland. He alone was equal to the occasion. Taking command of the squad, without a moment’s hesitation he detailed four men to carry the deceased cor|x ral to barracks while the remaining members walked slowly behind as a military escort. Having paid these compliments to the unfortunate corporal, St. James marched the squad to the drill ground, gave them double time for the remainder of the period, and dismissed them ten minutes after recall.1 That night CojM-land went to sleep with a smile U|Htn his lips. CHAPTER IV. June had conic at last. To Gcorgie the Academic year had been a hard one, and it was only by constant effort that he stood reasonably well in his class.7 The year had not Ix-cii without its triumphs, however, for single-handed Copeland hail won the Vale. Harvard, and Navy games, and had played piuckily throughout the whole second half of the Syracuse game with a broken leg and a sprained shoulder. In addition to these feats lie had also won the field meet for his class and had soundly thrashed his unmilitary room-mate, thus making him a better man. The Corps was drawn up for Graduation Parade. When the last strains of the Star Spangled Banner died awav and the officers had reported, the cadet adjutant liegan to read the new list of cadet officers. Impatiently St. James listened through the list of captains, lieutenants, sergeants, and acting sergeants. Not that he expected to he made a corporal. All. no. He was too modest for that, hut nevertheless In- was interested. An intense silence prevailed throughout tin visitors' seats and the assembled multitudes leaned eagerly forward. "To In- cor| ornls,“ rang tin- metallic tones of the adjutant. “Cadets Brown. Smith. Jones. Pebble —" ft. Thus showinic hlms«-lf fully ns able a ilrlll master as any Tnc. 7. Non.- of them ever stand hlxh in Ihelr class. Who ever heard of a hero In the KiiKtnrer Con ? H No W.-st Point hero Is ever made llrst corp on I he jump — 252 —THE 1000 HOVITZER cjJI 7fe:. The rest of the order was drowned by the cheer which broke simultaneously from the thousands of spectators. Copeland almost moved in ranks, hut he resolutely controlled the violent emotion which swept over him. His jaw was firmly set; then and there he resolved to he worthy of the high honor which had been conferred upon him. CHAPTER V. Second class year was over. The Corps was again assembled in order to give a fitting stage setting for the periodical announcement of the new officers. St. .Fames Pebble stood behind tin first squad of B Company, unselfishly hoping that the exalted position of first captain would fall to tin- lot of Raymond Dcllington, his best friend. The stentorian voice of the adjutant could be heard for miles. “To he captains. Cadets Pebhh " Copeland heard no more. There was a singing of larks in his ears and for the moment he seemed to walk among the clouds. The ambition of his life had been attained. He was First Captain. The Corps, wildly cheering, carried him to his room on their shoulders." Of course Copeland maintained discipline as it had never been maintained before, or since, and at the same time was the most popular" first captain who had ever been in office. During first class camp Mary Sherman again apjx-ared on the scene.1 “Mary.” said Gcorgie, as they amliled along Flirtation’s leafy Iwwers: "Will you consent to share," the hard life of a Coast Artillery officer?”1 “() George." exclaimed Mary. “What an unnecessary question!” The swells lapped gently on the rock-hound shore, and the red bird sang in the sumach bush. Our new first captain had surrendered to Cupid, and for the only time in his career St. James was absent at parade. v All West Point heroes are. 10. They never fall to do this. II With the lacs.

THE SI RKKNUKH — 253 — in Kaydet Slang I] Once upon a time there was a Kaydet. who was known far and wide as the Duke. When he was only a Beast he attracted much attention from the Yearling Corps, on whom he was careful to Bone a Reverse. This is the only thing on record which the Duke ever Boned, except an A.B. He let Math take care of itself and was nearly Found in B. S. and Drill Regs. The Duke was not made a Corp in June for various reasons known to the Com and the Tac Department. He spent his Yearling Camp walking Buck Cuard Tours, smoking Skags, serving Cons, and Running in Boodle. He never went to any Hops, except the Feed Hops, and then he didn't dance. He wouldn't Spoon an L. P. for his Rest friend, and you couldn't hire him to P. S. On the Practice March he Ran It Out and was Hived. This crime gave him Two Months on the Area, and thus one of his chief ambitions was realized. Jtf. -IS. We tell all this to show what sort of a File the Duke was. or at least pretended to be. About lii time Furlough happened along, and the Duke left for his native Podunk, somewhere in Maryland. -is. -is. -is. -is. -is. -is. -is. -is. (] When the Duke got off the train his whole nature did the Presto Chango Act. “The Bunch won't be able to get a line on me in this place," remarked the Duke sagely, as he purchased a bunch of violets for the belle of the village. -IS. -IS. -IS. -IS. -is. -IS. -IS. The next day they had a Formation in honor of the Duke's return to his Podunk. All the Femmes for miles around assembled at the Ducal Estate, and the Duke arrayed himself in Purple and Fine Linen and Fought Pink Tea all over the lawn. Then they crowned him Queen of May and a lot of other rot. which made the Duke think he was even more of a Heller than he had imagined himself. It was a great day for the Duke. In the evening the Femmes went home leaving the Duke Sitting amidst the garlands singing •‘For She’s a Jolly Cood Fellow." .jls. -IS. €| Moral• The best of us slip upon Furlough. — 354 —(Blossar?
