A., 1911 RUM Hint 0 AND ARRANGfD DV THE HOSKINS PRESS 904-906 CHESTNUT ST. PHILADELPHIACharles IDilliam larncb Class of ‘ fOciifp" HIS is the Book of "Never Again' a record of beginnings and endings; a book of endeavor, of endurance, of achievement; an epitome of the survival of the fittest; a chronicle of grind and grinds; a catalogue of heroes and sheroes. of actions and reactions, of virtue and reward, of crime and punishment. In this volume is set forth in type and art the rugged path of virtue that leads to the academic summit where stands Alma Mater waiting to bestow the degree of B. S. Bachelor of Slaughter and to attest that eighty-five of her neophytes are proficient in the gentle art of throat-cutting as scientifically practiced in the year Nineteen Hundred and Eleven of the Christian era. Incidentally are exploited some bypaths, not altogether so virtuous as hilarious and sportive, that relieve the somber regions of the Art of War and exhibit the sons of Mars as other sons, relaxed and gay, laying aside the grim visage of their bloody trade for the innocent joys of sport and spooning, of hazing “Tacs’ and getting even with the Academic departments. These Eighty-Five nursed at the breast of our dear Highland Bellona, babes and sucklings four years ago, men now, tempered and tried, with a bit of iron in their blood; sound of heart and of l ody and of mind so far as training can assure; tuned to a high pitch; straining at the leash and clamorous for the heritage of youth, are here for the last time together a band of gray brothers closely knit by common trials and interests and a common objective; lined up at the scratch awaiting the pistol of graduation to break away for the glorious race of life. Bang! Away with you! Father Time is referee and holds the hourglass for your record. Run fair; keep your eyes fixed on the goal; don't swerve; do your best, ami may the best man win. Bear this in mind the man who loses but has done his best, has won; the man who wins and fails of his best, has lost. It is only the best that is in you that is the true criterion of success, the standard by which you must be measured, the gauge of your merit. These Eighty-Five have “arrived —at the scratch. The others herein recorded are on the way to toe the mark, developed in due proportion by the same influences towards the same ideal. This twelfth day of June. Anno Domini Nineteen Hundred and Eleven, they stand shoulder to shoulder; but within the hour “Never Again. When the first of Nineteen-Eleven shall have set his foot ujxrn the boat or car that is to hale him into the hereafter, not once morehere below shall this band of brothers be united; not once more may they look together into each other's eyes and hear the familiar shouts and grinds; not again shall a common impulse move them. Hut what of that? A wave of sadness; a smothered sob; a tear repressed; a tight grip of hands—and ho! for Life and the World. A year ago your Prologue stood with sixteen of his classmates in front of his own quarters to be photographed facing the spot where forty years before fifty-eight of us had stood with bared heads saluting the Corps the “Never Again farewell that a century of classes before yours have rendered their comrades of the Gray; while parents and sweethearts applauded and welcomed us to that work! to which we had been so long strangers. That anniversary night at the dinner the spirit of class brotherhood swept over us like a tide, and filled our hearts with the same glow of comradeship that hallowed our parting at graduation; and the fires of class affection that had smouldered these many years under the varying eventualities of life, flamed up with all the intensity of Corps life, and lit in each one a voice of reminiscent eloquence that thrilled and enchanted all. It was not alone the spirit of class, but the spirit of the Corps that with subconscious activity had been vital in us and. undying through life's vicissitudes, had asserted its power in the hour of our reunion. For one hundred and nine years our great Academy has each year opened her portals to a departing band of her elect, survivors of her stem probation; bearing her seal ujx n their foreheads; accountable to her for fidelity to her ideals; beholden to her for noble gifts of power, of opportunity. of development, of tradition; entrusted with her mission to carry the Spirit of West Point into the affairs of the Nation. For thirty-six successive years your Prologue has seen these her generations of foster children come and go; has contributed something of endeavor towards their training; has wished them God speed in their careers; and has seen with pride and sympathy the record of their successes and of their vindication of her trust. With what bitterness of distress he has heard of the few who have betrayed her, you who are faithful will know with a like experience. Now, in this his thirty-seventh year in Academic harness; a bit frosty in 2the pow but no whit frosty in sympathy with the Corps, its joys, its grouches and its ideals; a little wiser than in 70, but not much; a lot more charitable; with an abiding faith in the future of this Land of Promise, and of Humanity; and with a profound conviction of the pre-eminence among educational institutions of the Military School that has certified your worth, he salutes the Class of Nineteen-Eleven. Most likely the men of every graduating class of young men since colleges and universities were founded have been told that they lived in an evil age in which momentous changes were impending; and that their time was one of transition. This is always more or less true. All ages have their share of evil, and all are more or less transitional. As a matter of fact, however, in our world the importance of all issues is a question of degree; and all matters from time and space to fresh eggs are relative. As we look back over the historic field we note crises of superlative moment by which social conditions are profoundly affected, and we see that the conditions surrounding these epochs are always exceptionally intensive. It does not take a very superior intelligence to discern in our day and in our immediate surroundings evidences of such concentrated social energy. It is a commonplace of knowledge that since the beginning of the Nineteenth Century the Western World has rapidly revolutionized the material conditions of life; and that political and social relations and conceptions have undergone corresponding changes with no less swiftness. There is more difference in many fundamentals of thought, of social relations, and of political ideals between the world of today and that of George Washington than between his period and that of William the Conqueror yes,or that of Greece and Rome. There is in some respects as much difference between your world and that of your grandfathers as between their time and the age of Louis XIV; in fact, a good deal more. There is no precedent in history for the compression into periods of less than thousands of years of such general and far-reaching changes in the life and material powers of mankind as have taken place since 3the French Revolution; and it is to be borne in mind that the rate of change has shown no signs of decreasing. A single lifetime has been sufficient to span marvelous transformations in many fields of thought, of industry, of politics, of religion. It is this rushing, intensive, evolving, highly subjective world of mechanical activity, of skepticism, of scrutiny and investigation; with its tremendous problems clamoring for solution; its portent of still greater changes; its threat of social cataclysm; its insistent demand of every man for decision and action, that confronts you men of Nineteen-Eleven and your contemporaries. Always in the hand of Youth lies the shaping of the Future; but it is becoming more and more impossible for any man, young or old, to remain in our social system and evade an active personal participation in the solution of its issues. No matter what his vocation may be, he cannot retain his self-respect, and that of his fellows, and refuse his part in the common lot. And this applies to the soldier no less than to the civilian. Time was when the soldier was permitted neither heart nor head, but was wholly an autonomous caricature of a man a blind, marching, trigger-pulling and saluting machine operated by word of command and devoid of everything but mechanical impulse. This creature of wood was fitted only for the despotic purposes of tyrants, and has no place in a modern republic nor in the modern world at all. Not only does the military profession today require intelligence of a high order, initiative, judgment and discretion, of every commissioned officer, but of the enlisted man as well, and in our land the officer has not ceased to be a citizen in becoming a soldier; and burning questions of the day arc as intimately related to his responsibilities of command and his personal welfare as to the duties and interests of the civilian. Serving in such a complex civilization as ours, never can he tell what unusual duties he may be called upon to perform, nor what responsibilities he may be required to assume. Already the officers of our active Army have organized and administered civil governments, systems of public education, codes of law and civil courts, municipalities, customs services, steamship lines, railroads. They have built public roads ami bridges; constructed systems of sanitary engineering and telegraph lines; 4designed and erected large public buildings; reclaimed waste lands; conducted surveys; controlled and relieved great public disasters. Most of these things, and many more non-military activities, have been effected by Line officers alone; and to these must be added the great public works in the hands of the Scientific corps, including the greatest engineering operation of history. In all these labors the soldier is intimately in contact with the citizen; and more and more the old rigid line of separation between the two is disappearing, while the military profession is taking a practical position among the other activities of social and political life. Modern society is coming to appreciate the fact that there is a great and useful function in the energies and organized intelligence of a military class. As an object lesson of restraint and orderly control alone it serves as a fine moral tonic for society and operates as a perpetual check upon the violence of social impulse. When these militant influences are made operative on a whole people, as in the case of Germany and others, they become educative of a higher citizenship and energize the industrial and commercial life of a nation. The moral of all this lies in the demand for earnest and sympathetic study on the part of the soldier of the social, economic and political problems, whose solution in any form is bound to change the face of the world under his feet, and to transform the social order of which he is a part. Everywhere men are demanding readjustment and a new deal. The whole earth is awakening—the Orient with its swarming millions, and even Africa, but yesterday a dark jungle, are seeing a great light and rubbing their eyes. Never since man came upon earth have there been such doings, such a ferment among all peoples, such promise of great things to come. It is an inspiration to live in such a dawn and to be a part of such a transformation. Do not assume. Men of Nineteen-Eleven, that you have discharged your obligation to your country, society and yourselves by confining your attention to professional matters alone. A man who knows nothing but his job is only 5half alive a lopsided and half-developed creature of restricted horizon and narrow prejudices. Have convictions upon all vital issues and don’t try to live on opinions merely particularly those of others. Convictions determine conduct; opinions determine compromise and expediency. A man without convictions regarding the great issues of existence is a flabby derelict on the ocean of life, useless to society and a menace to navigation. A man who has convictions, even if wrong, will always dominate him whose only motive power is opinion. What do you believe, what do you believe in. and why do you believe it? You are a part of your time and environment. You cannot escape their influences and the issues they present. Today holds a pistol at your head and demands your convictions. Out with them if you have any. Make them count for something in your lives. Every man is a center, however circumscribed, of influence and of effluence. Every act and thought, no matter how slight, irradiates waves of impulse throughout the universe, contributing their much or little to a resultant movement in the eternal evolution. If you have them not, and in the solution of your personal equation the value of your unknown quantity proves zero, you are ethically bankrupt; and Today will kick you contemptuously into the oblivion of Yesterday where you belong, fora man without convictions is the most pitiful thing on earth. This is the epoch of a great World Peace Movement which grows apace from day to day. The man of war is put on the defensive, and iscalled upon to justify his membership in the social system. War and the soldier are reprobated. and the military spirit is decried by ardent peace enthusiasts and non-resistance zealots who lay at the door of both the responsibility for most of the ills and a large share of the sins of the social organism. These well-meaning doctors of our sick times purpose curing our diseases by abolishing the symptoms. This peace movement is a hopeful sign of the evolution of society towards a higher plane of life—a harbinger of that universal brotherhood towards which all the ages have tended, and towards which Christianity points as man’s ultimate goal. But the propaganda against war and the denunciation of its evils are no new oracle. What constitutes their novelty and promise is their catholicity and organization; their 6persistence and their recognition by the political world as a force to be reckoned with and respectfully considered. It seems to me that no man who loves his kind can refuse the movement his co-operation and sympathy; no man who considers human destiny as more than a struggle for existence can fail to enlist under its banner. But approval of efforts to enlarge the sphere of arbitration and to forward the cause of peace is one thing; while assent to the claim that war can be eliminated speedily from human affairs by exhortation and co-operative national agreement, and sympathy with the reprobation of military preparation and the soldier, are quite another matter. The fallacy of the anti-militarist contention lies in mistaking the effect for the cause. War is a symptom, not a disease; the eruption, not the fever; the ulcer, not the corrupt blood; the violence of delirium, not the deranged brain tissue. The diseases of the social order bring about war. Selfishness, greed, pride, and ambition are the irritants that inflame the blood of nations to battle. It is peace that generates war. not soldiers and the military spirit. Reform human nature and war will cease to l e; and so will law and judges and sheriffs and police. As well attempt to extinguish crime by abolishing all these last as to hope to stop war by disbanding armies and preaching peace. In the meanwhile be well assured that your profession is a noble one; that the upright, educated soldier belongs to the highest type of man and citizen, and is approved by Scripture and honored in History. The greatest characters of the Old Testament were both soldiers and law-givers; and in the New, the three laymen most distinguished by Divine approval, without the slightest reprobation of their calling, were captains of Infantry in the regular Roman army. Brotherhood and solidarity are ultimate, but not yet; arbitration and peace are their issues, but not now. An expectation of universal peace based upon disarmament and an appeal to argument has no warrant in existing conditions; and an attack upon the Army, the soldier and military preparation prompted by such expectations has no foundation in logic nor warrant 7in Holy Scripture. Therefore. enter upon the career to which you are called, and for which you have served a hard apprenticeship, with pride in your high vocation and the devotion to it of the best that is in you; exalting in your lives the ideal of the soldier and the citizen, and striving ever for the welfare of your fellow-men. Repudiating sordid motives in your ambition, be faithful to the motto of your Alma Mater; and translate into action those finely tempered principles of clean integrity and right living which have made Her famous and her sons respected throughout the earth. Then, wherever duty calls you. unafraid you shall face the issue with tranquillity and a clear conscience, faithful to your God, your Country and yourselves— “So when the Angel of the darker Drink At last shall find you by the river-brink And, offering his Cup. invite your soul . ... Forth to your Lips to quaff you shall not shrink. 8 TMt DEPARJMENTJ ir n ft Jvtfrnprrintrn rnt Major-General Thomas H. Barry, U. S. Army.

With his cherub-like face and angel eyes he was ever so reticent and unprepossessing that it took us a couple of years to realize that so great a genius was in our midst. Yea, genius lie must Ik-, for who but prodigious sons assume such altitudes of extreme distress in the fateful battle lor tenths?

Hut whenever we wander off on a practice march, you can bet your blooming lx ots that the “F” Co. "Mutt" is metamorphosed into a modern Henry VIII. The early morning reveilles, the long doughboy hikes, and the brisk open air seem to bring out his latent capacity for romance. Every hotel hop is graced by the presence of the erstwhile woman-hater. What a noble sight to see him nonchalantly saunter into the ball room, his manly brow crowned bv his carelessly brushed locks, his brick-red beard lending an air of awe and splendor! No wonder the |)cnsive maidens from Osca-wana succumbed to the bold and fearless love-making of our roughneck cavalier. May his course along Life's highways be ever crowded with gay old road-houses, ever cheered by gentle country lasses, and remain unfettered and free from the artificial immaculateness of the Army Regulations.

Charles Byrned along steadily and quietly enough until we were just about to become first classmen, and then suddenly burst into lurid prominence as a member of the "Milk Punch Quartette." Perhaps the thought of another year's monotony made him reckless, perhaps it was the thought of the many sjxxming formations that lay before him— whatever it was. he was "at home" to his friends all summer in "E” Company's shady lane. For four years we have tried to discover just what it is that loi pipes. There’s always a far-away look in his eyes, but it doesn’t seem to focus on a girl. Still, you never can tell. He boned a New York trip as a plebe member of the fencing squad; but when it came time to turn out as a yearling, decided that he could wait until Furlough. We asked Mike Murray if he knew anything on Byrne that would make good copy. "Well." said that worthy, with a reminiscent look, "I met him on Furlough once, on Broadway. Spent the evening together.

The gallant, the debonair, the all-charming Captain Jack, the Poet Scout. Right well do we thus address him who has received upon every held of love the Hitting arrows from Cupid's bow, and who never yet has failed to give wound for wound, and then glance with artless grace in search of other worlds to conquer. If there Ik any maiden so vain as to declare that the above words Indie the facts, let her come forth and rest for a moment or two under the amorous glances of the chivalrous Poet Scout. Second only to the charm of his irresistible jx r-sonalitv, is his verse, which tells of deeds heroic, of knights all unseen and unpraised by men, of lovers who on earth loved in vain, but who hope to renew their love on the golden shore. Jack has played football, run the hundred, anti walked the area. His literary genius will some day rise above the humdrum existence of a doughboy lieutenant, and verse and illustrations will give him a place in the Hall of Fame. He will long lie remembered by the Corps for his warm comradeship, and will carry through life the esteem and hearty affection of all his classmates. South B’bnd, Indiana. "Duckic," "Abe” "Jay" Act. Sergt., A. B. Since entering West Point, Jay's pink countenance has never ceased to portray the golden opulence of the fertile old Wabash banks. Some men gain a place in the hearts of woman by their feats of valor, some project themselves into the g« d graces of the fairer sex through pity, some entice their tender sympathies by snares and pitfalls; but Abe Calvert steals silently into their midst, enshrouds their very beings in a cloak of sentiment, transforms their tender fancies into ethereal realities, and hangs one more heart to the trophies in his hall of Romance. Where others have knocked in vain at the door of Op| ortunity, Jay seems to find the “Open Sesame" that gains entrance into the affections of the social cold springs. And all through the summer evenings, when soft shadows of twilight gave way to darkness, you could see the vision of a plaintive maiden standing on the docks across the river, tossing a farewell kiss to the South Bend Adonis, the little giant of intrigue, our leggy friend.

Bobbie hails from the land where dwelt that colony of Germans who could not speak English, so he can't lx blamed for being both Dutch and wooden. Nevertheless his activities arc legion. He is at home anywhere. He can enjoy himself as much with the bunch in the Gym. as with the femmes in Cullum. He might be said to subsist on indoor and outdoor meets. Hockey, loo— that's one place where the Dutch put it over the Irish. As a practical application of his Mechanics, he once hoisted himself some thirty feet up into the tower of the new ch.qx-1 on a block and tackle. Feeling need of rest, he tarried there for an instant only an instant. For he undertook to supjx»rt himself by holding on to the wrong ro| c, and descended like Newton’s apple. Later, in hospital, he had time to figure out that v «= agt,and returned to the section room with a stronger hunch that the book was right than he had before entertained.

Here he became famous by refusing the honor, and staying to play on the class team. He went through Yearling summer with the "luck of the British Army.” and it was not until the barrenness of that sand spit down the harlxir palled on him that he was really overtaken by calamity. True, his corp’s chevrons were cut away Itecause he could not stand the thought of Christmas here while more dissy classmates enjoyed Broadway; but his good conduct won him a sergeancy after Furlough, and June saw three bars on the sleeve of his tunic. Since the loginning, he has l een recognized as one of the geniuses of tin- class his debating powers are great, lie can quote Kipling by the yard, and for real, flowery language he has them all distanced. 3rtf)iir Jtaparb Conarb Font, Pennsylvania.

This is caused by the sudden resumption of boning, drilling, and housekeeping after what has gone before. To add to this there is the gloomy prospect of having to remain in the same condition for two more years. Even the much-heralded Second Class deadbeat turns out to be false, and we spend our waking hours boning Ordnance as well as all the old-time subjects that men used to groan about. There is a little consolation in looking back and observing how much wiser we arc now than we were last Spring, when MacGregor wrote long slushy songs. Lee continually spoke in tender poetry, and the whole class howled and yelled in a very foolish manner every time the opportunity to show off presented itself especially when femmes were near. When Furlough finally did begin, we had the great event of our lives at the banquet. Old Pa Walmsfey at once began discoursing in French on the fidelity of his wife, and ended up with a plea for equal suffrage and universal sobriety. In the meantime, his wife sang a solo, while Crawford and Mother attracted a little attention by hammering each other over the head with bottles of mineral water. About this time the eating was informally ended by the entrance of 1910. and we closed up by giving a cheer for all the graduates that ever had been. During the summer Ike Spalding took a farm on shares, and came out quite well, though he had some trouble in getting hands to help put up the crop. Paules hired out as riding instructor for a young lady, and showed her a few stunts. Correll devoted himself unreservedly to improving his horsemanship. He settled in the Bel Air Hunt Club and rode severely most of the summer. It is a pleasure t his classmates to observe that he has reduced the amplitude of his vertical motion. Such efforts are praiseworthy and should be highly commended. Bismark was the pride and delight of all Kansas. His return to the plains was promptly heralded by the Emporia Gazette, and his many friends turned out en masse to show their old friend Bohunk that they appreciated his achievements in the military field. He won a blue ribbon at the Sunday School fair for rapid a YW f| HOC I 1 III 1 L 86progress in devouring a rhubarb pie. All the matrimonial papers declared him a very desirable male, and he was undoubtedly the most popular guest at all watermelon parties and husking bees. Paddy Flint was actually cheerful at all hours of the morning, and frequently spoke to his friends even at the breakfast table. Gatch-ell gained twenty-five pounds, so he must have been actively engaged at some job where the high cost of living had not made itself felt. 11 gave a fellow considerable pleasure to see the old bunch again in New York. How sweetly reminiscent of the second sub-div it was to hear old Kirk, when he met his beloved wife, break out in a real hearty laugh as only he can. McDonald stood in the lobby to welcome individually each man as he entered the hotel. The First Class and Yearlings welcomed us back with considerable warmth. I suppose they were glad to have a few more on hand to share their sorrows. And we had our picture taken. I have always wanted to be in the picture of the returning Furlough Class with straw hats strewn around. The distinguishing features of this picture are Gonser’s face, and the face of Maud framed in the rim of his old straw hat. He had made his breakfast on the crown after the train left New York. The homesick, heartbroken look on Pug's face was caused by the realization that he could no longer enter free lunch-counters and nourish himself with dog sandwiches. There was some trouble in finding enough clothes during the afternoon to make up the required uniform for full dress, but that was the only excitement we experienced until we again assembled in the Chemical Lecture Room and beheld P. Tillman and heard his words of encouragement. Now we have the prospect of going through camp with twice as many plelwsasusual.and most likely we will witness some more changes in the old-time order of things. But this is the only prospect we have. (The atvovc conclusion is tyoi-callv Second Class.

ColomboCl £v. sS of 1913s’ abler chronicler than the present discussed the history of our class front the fateful day its members decided to make West Point famous, until the time that they thought better of it and commenced boning Descrip, and remarked therein that the record of the class was given in the main by the records of the great men in it. And since we have attained to the estate of legitimate Furlough pipers the performances of a few of our particular geniuses have still supplied most of the dramatic element of the class record. This was evident from the moment of recognition. For. as soon as we had gotten used to looking file-closers in the eye. and had revised our opinions on bracing, we found that we had no dramatic elements in our life, and also no great men. Everybody was piping something, except us; we were utterly insignificant; our sole mission was to drag L. P's to hops. Worst of all. Beast Barracks was off limits. There remained only to pray for Camp. But when it came, the dramatic element cropped out with a vengeance; and simultaneously the great men appeared. The first to get really dazzling was Jack Considine, who, in company with a few other disappointed wearers of buck chevrons, organized the Tigers, whose mission it was to keep all the corps under the spigot at the same time. They were never successful, but Jack's magnificent record in athletics and studies, made on the night when he personally put fourteen men under, penetrated to Seattle, where, by latest newspaper advices, it is still warming the cockles of his father's heart. Actuated by this example, Foote began to have spigot ambitions; and, being too tender-hearted to put anyone else under, went under himself every evening at tattoo. With the commencement of riding, there appeared a fresh opjK»rtunity for covering ourselves with glory, and we responded nobly. On the first day a new Academy record was made by Hardin, C». I,., who in five minutes fell off nine times in nine different directions. Toohey distinguished himself a little later by asking permission to “dismount and tighten his a pare jo.'' And when bare-back riding had started, a femme in the gallery was heard to say one day, "That Jimmy Peale is positively the worst rider I ever saw!" A good part of our time 92was spent in running in ami eating boodle. But no one person distinguished himself there, except perhaps Putnam, whose record on “A” Co. jam was astonishing. and the unknown genius that discovered the resemblance between mortar and dried tooth-paste. After that discovery the crude device of crossing posts was almost abandoned. Nevertheless, just to keep in practice, a few strenuous files had a standing-gun drill on Number 9 one evening, slightly peeving the O. I). The practice march brought the usual opportunities to the tactically talented. Weird disappearing stunts were performed by the leaders of flanking groups, although few had the presence of mind shown by Roberts, who. being hopelessly lost in a wilderness of lakes, set his plebes to milking cows. But the most notable pieces of strategy were wholly original. For example, on the second day a picked band of runts tried to solve the problem of abandoning aims and retreating to base of supplies (Peekskill). Unfortunately, a flank movement of tacs caused the collapse of the maneuver. A more successful problem was the attack and defense of a hotel, conducted by Milligan, Palmer and others. With our return to barracks and its atmosphere of tenths, most of the brilliant work of our great men was over. The gumstick was laid aside for the right-line pen, and for one man who, like Van Vliet. gets up at midnight to shine his dress-hat, twenty arise to spec prosaic integrals. But glimmering through the darkness of Phil and Calculc is the first faint light of our dawning Furlough, when, be it hoped, we can tie things up to our heart's content without losing any quill. After twenty-seven months of "drill-ye-tarriers-drill" and similar inventions, we will be quite ready for a summer of cit clothes anddo-as-we-pleasc ;and if the balmy May evenings ever do roll around, we feel certain that the vicinity of the monument will resound with songs of what is to be the Furlough of Furloughs—our own. 93rs?

UNITED STATES NAVYr 111111 • 111ifnmmirii LL of the many branches of athletic sports we have the good fortune to enjoy here at West Point are in an extremely healthy condition. The spirit in the Corps during the past year has been excellent, as evidenced by the increased number of candidates turning out for the various teams. From the beginning of the athletic year on July ist, till the end of June 30th of the following year, active training for contests in football, baseball, indoor and outdoor meets, fencing. basketball, hockey, lacrosse, polo, wrestling, and tennis are indulged in, while the devotees of boxing and golf take advantage of the physical benefits accruing from these two exercises. The query is still heard, however, from both cadets and others interested in Army athletics. Why are we not represented in intercollegiate competition by a track team, a rifle team, tennis team, and by teams of many of the other minor sports which the colleges support and which we play among ourselves? An explanation is again offered by repeating the underlying principle by which the Council governs athletics. “Individual excellence at the expense of average efficiency is not desirable.” To be well represented against intercollegiate opponents means time spent on a few at the expense of the instruction of many. The Corps may question such a policy and disfavor this system, but it is the acknowl-edged goal of the educational institutions of to-day. and was singled out by an eminent authority on athletics of one of the large Eastern universities at the last Intercollegiate Athletic Conference as the ideal system of physical training. During the past year the rules for the governing of athletics by the Council have been only slightly amended. The method of selecting a captain for the team was changed for football, the election taking place immediately after the completed season instead of on October 10th of the following year. The awarding of the “A” to the all-around gymnast and to basketball teams was amended as follows: In basketball the privilege of wearing the “A" will be awarded only to those teams that, in the opinion of the Athletic Council, merit it. The awarding of the regulation “A” to the all- around gymnast will also be discretionary with the Coun-cil. It will not be extended necessarily to the winner of the personal competition each year, but only in cases where marked w—j individual excellence is % I JjB shown. With the installa- tion of apparatus this Fall, we became the proud possessors of one of the finest and best-. equipped gymnasiums existence. The creased floor space. 105larger swimming-pool and baths, handball courts, and other facilities for exercise are greatly appreciated by the many lovers of indoor work. It has been proposed by the Council that the ground in rear of the gymnasium be put to the double use of an ice-rink in winter and tennis courts in summer the latter to replace the loss of the courts in Execution Hollow through the construction there of the new mortar pits. No official action has been taken in the matter as yet, and if ground more suitable for these purposes can be obtained, the proposed site will no doubt be abandoned.

We will say unsatisfactory because losing to the Xavv is extremely so; but we cannot say unsuccessful when we think of the shining collar and chain we placed on the fearless bulldog of Eli Vale. There is no doubt that the team, intact and in the splendid physical condition in which it faced Yale, was one of the greatest football machines that the Army ever produced. Shall we say “Hard Luck?” Yes, that is the expression. The aforementioned fickle young woman having turned against us. misfortune overtook the team in practice before the Harvard game, and consistently stuck by until our final game found a guard and end out with shattered knees, and three of the back field barely able to stand on partially healed ankles. The early fall practice started the first week in September with 110 candidates reporting to the coaches. Of these, 47 earned places on the final first squad, and 33 were sent to gain experience with the Cullum Hall squad. The coaching staff had been increased and strengthened by Lieut. T. Y. Hammond. 05. Lieut. Greble, 09. and Lieut. Pullen, 10. The coaches early grasjicd the possibilities of the new game. They were greatly handicap( ed by the loss of a week of practice and the cancellation of the Vermont game through the Corps being confined to barracks. In spite of this setback, the open play and knowledge of the new football played by the Army in its early games, and especially in the Yale Game, called forth much favorable comment on our coaching system In the first game. played with Tufts on October 8th, the team was a little slow getting co-ordinated, but finally hit its stride and smothered the collegians, 24-0. Many substitutes were given a tryout after the second period, but these changes detracted little from the scor-ing-power. After the game 107the election for captain was held, and Wier. 'ii. was elected. “Pappy," who won his “A" when he was a plcbe, and played a star game at guard for three years, was well qualified for the place and made a popular and efficient leader. The late election was due to the new ruling of the Army Athletic Council. Vale faced us on October 15th with an advantage of more experience in number of games played, but with an unstableness and lack of team-play which the Army seemed to have overcome in one game and barely two weeks preparation. The game, as are all games with Vale, was a hard-fought one and spectacular with its many brilliant plays. Being the first big game of the season, it was a severe test for the possibilities of the new rules, and watched eagerly by the many critics and enthusiasts who thronged onto the reservation. And they were not disappointed, for they were afforded an excellent example of the opportunities and advantages of the new game over the old. The fact that the Army was quick to take advantage of these opportunities accounts for our victory, 9-3. Yale was on tin defensive throughout the game. Captain Daly's ability saving the Blue a whitewash by a pretty drop-kick from the twenty-eight yard line. Surles scored our touchdown in the first few minutes of play, after Browne had intercepted a forward pass and carried the ball to the four-yard line. Dean kicked the goal, and 'luring the third period contributed three more points by booting between the bars a beautiful place-kick from the thirty-eight yard line. Of this victory, the Xew Yorl Sun says: “It was a very complete and thorough triumph. The Cadets far outplayed Vale. There were no flukes or accidents about the soldiers' triumph; it was a clean-cut victory of a smoothly working football machine, well versed in the diversified tricks of new football.’’ The eleven with the exception of Hicks, who was still lame from his exceptionally hard and brilliant playing against Vale, met Lehigh on Octol»er 22nd. This game was played in a drizzling rain on a wet field. The feature of the contest was the deadly manner in which the Army team followed the ball, recovery of fumbles being instrumental in scoring four of our touchdowns. The final score was 28-0. Our team was coming along nicely 108and developing into one of I lie fastest in the East, when the first two of our many injuries put Hyatt and Browne out with sprained ankles on the eve of the Harvard game. Dean was also partially incapacitated from a twisted ankle. Harvard won by a single touchdown, due directly to a blocked kick. The Crimson was unable to penetrate the stout Army defense, although she was the aggressor throughout. Our offense sorely missed the services of Browne. Hyatt, and Dean. In the last few minutes of play, wonderful fighting alone saved another score by Harvard's powerfully freshened attack. To afford the first string a much-needed rest, an entire substitute line-up played Springfield Training School the following week, and won after a hard and interesting scrap. Score, 5-0. Dean's ankle received a severe setback, and lie was absent from the line-up against Villa- nova on November 12th. Of our other cripples. Browne and Surles were able to return to the game for a short period and aided materially in our victory of 13-0. Villanova showed a strong defense throughout the game, but her attack was weak. The game was marred by numerous fumbles on both sides. I11 the final contest before the Xavv. we licked Trinity. 17-0. Temporary joy was brought to the hearts of the Corps by the return of our fast, aggressive attack. This was followed by gloom when Walmsley was laid out for good by a bad blow on the knee. Dean and Hicks after a long absence, although still limping, played excellently the short time they were in. All the rogscoring was done in the first half, and the third period found the Army line-up consisting wholly of substitutes. In the last period, led by the versatile Kamsdell, Trinity developed a strong attack and thrice carried the ball to our five-yard line. The scrubs held each time and took the ball away on downs. An account of the Xavy game will be found hereafter. The Army team this year was more of a team than an aggregation of individual stars. .Nevertheless, Wicr and Arnold bv their consistent good work earned a place on Camp's honor roll of football stars. Wier was chosen by many authorities to play on their mythical All-American elevens, and Arnold by a few. After the Navy game “Bob" Hyatt, 12, was elected captain for next year, the council having returned to the old method of election. The captain-elect has shown by his cool-headed and excellent generalship of the past three seasons his competency for leadership, and we wish him all success. Wier, Surles, Hicks, and Morris will be lost to the team next season through graduation, and their places will be hard to fill, but with the strong nucleus remaining, and the large incoming class to draw on, the prospects arc bright for a splendid season.

Pullen 11 IOX Friday, the 25th of November, the football squad and coaches left West Point amidst a heavy downpour of rain, but with the enthusiastic cheers of the Corps ringing in their ears. Everyone was behind them, eager and ready to stand by them. Whate'er might be the outcome of their trip, our hearts and our hopes went with them. The rain may have dampened our spirits somewhat, and caused a little grumbling and some dire weather forecasts for the morrow, but we kept all this hidden from the team. Those forecasts amounted to nothing, for November 26th. the big day which had been our predicted point for many months, dawned bright and fair, although the dawning process did not take place until the Corps was half-way to New York. We left in a darkness caused by the gloom emanating from an order which detained on “special duty” here thirty-two of our best rooters, and lighted only by the brightness of oiir spirits. The trip down to Philadelphia was full of songs and laughter because we tried .to be gav but every man felt a certain tenseness in his muscles, a certain tightening around his heart, due to the excitement of the approaching contest. When the Corps was turned loose, what happy reunions and meetings with fond parents, relatives, friends, and yea. even sweethearts. Great thanks are due to the University of Pennsylvania for the marked courtesy and bounteous hospitality proffered us on this as well as former occasions. Except for strong wind, the weather was ideal. A gayer or more enthusiastic crowd never assembled at Franklin Field. At one-thirty the Corps marched on the field, every face set with a grim determination that spoke well for the unquenchable Army spirit. Two classes among us had never seen a Navy game, two classes had seen an Army victory, and only one class knew what a defeat meant; and for this class it was the last chance to be with the Corps—of the Corps and cheer on an Army team. When our eleven appeared on the field, the South Stand rose eti masse, all heads were bared, and throats soon to l e ”3hoarse carried spirit and encouragement to the team. Of the game what need be said? Surles was taken out in the lirst. few minutes of play and his loss was keenly felt. The team fought with every ounce of their strength, but the avv won because on this particular day they happened to have a little the best of it. Seven times we held our breaths, and our hearts stopped beating, while Dalton essayed to kick a field goal, and six times he failed, but on the seventh trial you know the story the ball sailed squarely over the goal posts. After that the Army put up another wonderfully spirited fight, but the time was short, and we left with the Army team defeated. The Xavy carried off a victory; they won it fairly and squarely there can be no doubt of that. Hut great credit is due to our warriors- they did their best, and no more could be expected or asked of them. We lost the game, but we were not beaten the Army never is. Perhaps the loss of the game will benefit the Corps. They now know the meaning of a defeat by the Xavy. May they never experience another. One lesson should be enough. Next year they will go down to that game we hope on the Saturday before Thanksgiving carrying with them that spirit of FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT, and a determination to LICK THE XAVY. This year when the team returned from Philadelphia, they were welcomed just as warmly, just as enthusiastically, as if they had brought back with them the Navy’s scalp. And that is the way the team should always be received. We are proud of our team, and we ask that they always bear in mind the great truth expressed in one of the verses of "Benny Havens:’’ “But victors or defeated men. You’re still the ARMY TEAM. 114ICfje (Same In the 15th annual football contest the Army went down to defeat at the hands of the strong, aggressive Navy team by the score of 3 to o. The lone score of the game was a field goal by Dalton from the 30-yd. line in the beginning of the 4th period. This not only won the game but put the Navy on an even basis with the Army on the total number ol games won and lost, giving each team seven victories and one tie. The high west wind made punting and handling of punts difficult. In the first period with the wind tiehind their backs the Army was kept on the defensive due to Dalton’s beautiful punting against the wind. He failed twice at a try for a field goal. Dean's punts were low and long in the 2d period and the ball alternated up and down the field. Dalton failed twice more at field goals and Dean once. The Army started the 2d half with a rush and carried the ball deep into the Navy’s territory. Dean missed by the smallest margin a beautiful try at a field goal from the 44-yd. line. A fumble immediately after this put the Army on the defensive for the remainder of the game. Surles was injured in the 1st period and was forced to leave the game. Cook also relieved Gillespie in the 4th period. The work of the Army line was excellent at all times and held its own with the Navy jfirst pcriol) Wier won the toss and chose the west goal, taking advantage of a high wind which blew down the field. Dalton kicked off to Browne on the 5-yd. line, who returned to the 28-yd. line. On a fake kick Browne made 2 yds. through left tackle. Dean kicked to Clay on the Navy's 46-yd. line. Wood dropping him in his tracks. Bodes could not gain on an end run and Dalton kicked to Hyatt on the 20-yd. line. Dean returned the punt to Bodes on the Army’s 50-yd. mark, Gillespie making the tackle. Dalton then got off a beautiful punt against the wind to Dean on the3-vd. line. Hamilton and Gilchrist were covering Dalton’s punt in g«KKl shape and the Army backs were unable to return the ball. Dean was forced to kick from behind his own goal line to Bodes on the 35-yd. line who returned 12 yds. liefore l eing forced out of bounds. Dalton tried the line but could not gain. Another attempt at the same place showed the Army defense to be very strong. On the 3d down Dalton dropjjcd back to the 31-yd. line and attempted a goal from placement. The Army forwards sifted Ix5through the Navy line and blocked the kick but a Navy man recovered it on the 2 j-yd. line. Dalton 2 yds. through left tackle Dean kicked to Rodcson the Navy’s 47-yd. line. Dalton punted to Hyatt on the 41 -yd. line, who came back 3 yds. Indore being downed. Dean's return kick fell short, Dalton getting it on the Army's 41-yd. line. On a fake kick Dalton shot through center for 4 2 yds. Rodes fumbled on the next play but recovered. Dalton dropped back and kicked to Hyatt on the 10-yd. line. Browne then tore around right end for 8 yds. and Dean punted. Clay fumbled the ball ami Wood recovered it oil the Navy’s 45-yd. line. Browne could not gain and Dean kicked to Clay who returned 10 yds. to the’as-yd. line. Dalton punted to Dean who made a fair catch at mid-field as time expired. Score, Army o, Navy o. ss'cconb JDrriol) The 2t |x riod opened with the ball in Army’s possession at mid-field, the Navy now having advantage of the wind. Browne made 1 yd. around right end and Dean kicked to Rodes who returned 5 yds. to the $6-yd. line. The Navy interfered within the 20-yd. zone, however, and the ball was given to the Army on the 44-yd. line. On a fake kick Browne made 5 yds. through tackle. Surles plunged into the line for3 more; he was injured in the play, however, and retired. McDonald relieving him. Dean then tried a goal from placement from the 45-yd. line but the ball fell a few yds. short. Dalton kicked from the 25-vd. line to Dean on the Army’s 50-yd line. Dean failed to gain and kicked out of bounds at the 20-vd. mark. Clay kicked but Dean fumbled, the Navy recovering on the 35-vd. line, Gillespie threw Rodes for a slight loss. Dalton made 4 yds. through center ami then dropjx'd back for a place kick which went wide. From the 25-vd. line McDonald made 2 yds. around right end.

Browne made 1 vd. around left end ami Dean kicked to the 46-yd. line. Clay kicked out of bounds on the 16-vd. line and Dean returned it to the 50-yd line where Rodes made a fair catch.

Dalton kicked to Hyatt who fumbled, the Navy recovering on the 14-yd. line as time was called. Cbirb £eriob No changes were made in either line-up at the beginning of the 2d half. The Navy defending the east goal kicked off to Browne who ran it back to the 22-yd. line. The Army then showed its strongest offense of the game and it looked for a while as though they would score. On a fake kick Browne dodged back 10 yds., when he was shoved out of bounds. The Army was on the jump and got the ball off before the Navy had lined up, Browne carrying it around left end for 9 yds. Dean dropped back and got off a beautiful punt which bounded again found the Army line like a stone wall, making but 2 yds. in two tries. For the second time Dalton tried a place kick, but the ball went wide and was brought out and put in plav on the 2 5-y i. line. After Browne had made but 116over Sowell’s head to the 12-yd. line where Clay fell on it. Dalton kicked to Dean on the Army’s 51-yd. line and Dean kicked hack out of bounds on the 20-vd. line.

Weather, fair, strong west wind. 117YES, May 28th was the time, and the place the Navy's field, but it would never do to start the game without warming up. The beginning was as far back as February 15th, when seventy-six men answered Coach "Sammy” Strang's call for candidates. This number was increased three weeks later by lhe most promising material from the new class, and the "hopefuls" were given a thorough trying out. Outdoor practice started March nth. and the permanent squad was finally reduced to twenty-five members before the season was far advanced. Under the new ruling of the Athletic Council, a captain was not elected until April 15th. "Billie” Harrison, whose brilliant playing around the second pillow had startled the natives the year before, was elected, and proved to be a heady and efficient leader. With six of the team that defeated the Navy in as a nucleus, the graduation of Meyer, Mountford and Devers having left vacancies at first base, right field and short stop, Coach Strang turned out a combination that hit its stride at the beginning and played with the clockwork and precision that spells but two words— good coaching. There was stiff competition for the vacant berths, and when the season oj ened on April 30th with Berkeley Hall College they were filled by Earned, Schneider and Maloney. Hyatt, Devore and McNeal alternated in the pitcher’s box. and Army won 3-1. Cook played at first base in the next game, in which Hyatt held SetonHlall to three runs while Army was scoring five. On April 6th the crack Manhattan College team lost to us by a score of 3-2. Devore pitched shutout ball, but Schneider made three costly errors. In the second game of the week on the 9th, Hyatt held Vermont University to four hits and one run, while Army made eleven hits and seven runs. Against Union, McNeal pitched his first game of the season. He allowed but four singles, and although given i)oor support, held the up-state team to one run while we scored eight. Our first defeat came on April 16th at the hands of Tufts. Riley pitched his first game in two years, and allowed a run in the second and three in the third inning. Hyatt replaced him and allowed but two singles, not a man reaching second while he pitched. Army scored three runs, chiefly through Capt. Harrison's fine stick work. The next game 121Hyatt was again on the firing-line against Lafayette with De Mott, the future Cleveland pitcher, in the box. A great pitching duel resulted, with llvatt having the advantage. Lafayette led till the sixth, when hits by Milliken and L'lloa, coupled with a base on balls and two errors, gave us three runs. Final score, ;-a. The features were Hyatt’s pitching and Milliken’s batting, the latter making a clean hit every time he went to bat. Cook was playing regularly at first base, Anderson in right field, and Milliken had finally won out over Schneider at short stop. April 23rd, Riley scored our first shutout. Wesleyan got most of the hits, while our men got all the runs Up to our half of the sixth neither side had scored, although Wesleyan had made seven hits to our one. Then Lyman reached first on an error and Whiteside set the bleachers wild with a clean home run. We scored twice more during the game, and Riley improved as the game progressed. Then came the great Vale team of football stars, who obtained but four scattered singles off Hyatt's delivery. The game was one of the best of the year, and was replete with brilliant fielding and timely hitting by the Army. It resulted in a 3-0 shutout, the sons of Eli failing to tread on home-plate. Circus catches by Surles and L'lloa choked off runs when Vale got particularly dangerous. The Columbia game looked easy, but Columbia won out by making three runs in the eleventh. Columbia's first score was in the second inning on a double and Whiteside's error, and Army immediately tied the score on hits by Cook and Surles and sacrifices by Milliken and L’lloa. For seven innings Riley held the visitors hitless, but stupid base running kept the Army from scoring. We had the bases filled in the tenth and the game apparently sewed up. but the necessary hit was not forthcoming. Rochester, flushed with a victory over Fordham, came next, but Hyatt was too much for them and we won, 3-1. Harrison hit a ball to the Officers’ Club and won the game. Virginia defeated us on May 7th by the score of 6-3. Whiteside made three singles and a triple in four times at bat. The Brown game was another pitcher’s battle; Hyatt had the letter of it, Army winning 2-1. Riley pitched a good game against Trinity, holding them to one run. but our team failed to score, and so Pat losing streak continued. L’rsinus failed to appear on May 18th. no game being played Hyatt lost his only game of the season on May 21st Fordham brought up a strong team and took the game 4-1. We outbatted them, and Hyatt did not allow a base on balls, but errors by the outfield gave Fordham three runs, while nine men left on bases tells the story of our low score. Rain stopjx»d the I«chigh game with the score a tie in the third inning. On Mav 28th the Navy game was played at Annapolis. The Seventh Regiment game was plaved between showers on Decoration Day. The game was called in the seventh inning when Waldredge of the 7th broke his leg. with the visitors leading 3-1. Devore returned from leave in time to pitch a shutout against Stevens. Score, 5-0. Hyatt proved his versatility by catching Riley in the Colgate game, this Ix-ing the fourth position he had 122played during the season. Armv made twenty-three hits, among which were four home runs, two triples and a double. Whiteside got two of the homers, and Hyatt and Ulloa one each. Score. 20-4. Thus the season ended with fourteen victories in twenty games. We had a finished ball team. Stirles, Ulloa. and Anderson doing splendid work in the outfield, while Cook. Harrison, Millikcn and Whiteside formed as good an infield as one could wish for. We had a good pitching stall. Riley. Devore and McNeal pitching steady ball, while Hyatt was at least the equal of any college twirler in the East. The team was fairly strong in batting, as pinch hits were not lacking in any except the Fordham and Columbia games. Great credit is due the squad, Capt. Trott, and esj ecially to Coach Strang, for what was probably the strongest of all Army baseball teams. ,23Reason of 1010 TEAMS w. p. TEAMS W. P. Berkeley Hall. . . . I 3 Univ. of Rochester..

This game was conceded to be the best game ever played between the two academies. Hyatt was the star of the game, pitching one of the greatest games of his career. But thirty midshipmen faced him, only two of whom could connect for singles. The Navy occupied third and second but once during the game, the nearest they ever came to the home cushion. Anderson of the Navy pitched gilt-edged ball which ordinarily would have won. The team supported Hyatt to a man. as the error column will show. Harrison's timely hitting and Surles’ fine base-running were responsible for our scores. ?Cfjr ftamr 111 Detail First liming: West Point went to bat. Lyman walked.

As one expressed it. “There wasn't a slow minute the whole time we were there.” We hope this year, when our friends from the Severn visit us. that we can show, with the humble means at our disposal, in some degree the appreciation of the Army Team. 127Cfje core WEST POINT A.B.

I 2  The fencing rr om in the new gymnasium is far in advance of anything vc had hoped to acquire. Thirteen double mats afford room for fifty-two men to bout at one time, but having only the one instructor. the size of the squad cannot l c increased. For whatever success the Army team has attained in the past, too much credit cannot l e given Monsieur Vauthier. His faithfulness and patience, coupled with his remarkable ability and perfect loyalty, have endeared him to every member of the squad. Darguc, the only ungraduated member of last years team, will be unable to compete this year. On this account it is necessary to develop an entirely new team, and to this end every member of the squad is exerting himself to the utmost. Seventy-four members of the fourth class were candidates' for the sound. Fifteen were chosen from among these and this nuinl er will later be decreased to six. We start the fencing season of 1911 under circumstances far less favorable than existed last year. Then, our team was composed of two junior fencers, Sohlbcrg, ’ 10, Cocroft, ’io, and one novice, Darguc, i 1. This team entered the finals on March 25th with almost a perfect record, having defeated Vale. Harvard. Cornell. Pennsylvania, and Columbia during the season. The finals, held in the Astor, closed with the following scores: TEAMS WON LOST Navy 18 9 Army 1 ( 11 Pennsylvania. 5 Cornell 8 9 The Armv and Navy teams were closely matched, but the Navy managed to keep the lead from the first. Had the Army won a single bout more from the Navy, the score would have Inren tied. The meet itself was more successfully conducted than anv previous competition. largely on account of the superior quarters in which it was hela. Through the courtesy of the" management of the Astor, the Belvedere was used for the semi-finals, and the Grand Ball Room for the finals. For this last occasion a large number of guests had been invited and a dance concluded the short fencing competition. These same quarters have been reserved for our use on March 31 and April 1, 1911, the date of the next Intercollegiate Fencing Finals. 1 29Herbert A. Dargue, ii Gregory Hoisington, ’11 Bethel W.

The new gymnasium with its large floor and spacious gallery fills a much-felt want of both players and spectators. Games are always well attended, and the whole Corps, with a few enforced exceptions, is always on hand to root for the team. Onlookers are no longer compelled to take up a three-deep formation and go through contortions to follow the game. The floor space now easily accommodates two regulation sized courts, a great improvement over the former cramped quarters. Prospects were exceptionally bright in the fall, with a veteran line-up to look forward to. Copthorne and Arnold were unable to play at all. however, and Conard only in the night games. Morris and Sutton have been playing two of these positions in great style, while Roberts alternates with Conard in the other. The severest setback was the loss, early in the season, of Lieutenant Stillwell as coach, his detail at t he Academy having expired. This officer played as a cadet on the team which introduced the game here, and by his untiring efforts as representative and coach in the last four seasons, West Point has risen to its high position in intercollegiate basketball. A coach has not been secured to succeed him, but it is hoped that the vacancy may soon be filled. On December 15th, McKinney, who has played forward for the past two seasons, was unanimously elected to guide the team through another year bright with prospect. The schedule opened on December 3rd with a defeat for Manhattan. Trinity was likewise handily disposed of the next week, and Penn State arrived on December 17th. As was the case last year, this game was full of excitement, and was finally won by the narrow margin of two points. A fourth class team was organized for the first time to develop possible material, and during December played scheduled games with several outside teams, being defeated in only one. During the holidays an inter-company tournament was held. All classes were eligible for the teams, the only restriction being that no more than one member of the regular squad could play on any one team. After an interesting struggle “P” Company won the prize awarded the winning team by the Council. Union caught the Army napping after the holidays, winning bv one point. The “come-back the following week more than made up for this defeat. Princeton was humbled by a score of 34-14. Con-ard here played his first game of the season, and greatly strengthened the offense with his brilliant floor-work. With Swarthmore, Vale. Penn. X. V. U., Rochester. and Colgate still on deck, stirring basketball is in store for us. Much to the Corps’ regret, application for a Navy basketball game was disapproved by the Athletic Council. In spite of the hypotheses aired in the Annapolis “Lucky Bag" last year in regard to the playing of such a game, we arc still desirous of a chance to prove our basket-tossers the better, and we trust that efforts toward such an end will Ik? persisted in in future years. Of the players this year, McKinney. Surles, Conard and Morris will be lost by graduation; but with the experienced reserve material, prospects for another good season are bright.

The time available for practice is very limited, usually only about one hour per afternoon. Without a covered rink, the possibility of practice or a game depends entirely upon the condition of the ice on Lusk Reservoir, a very uncertain quantity, which frequently approaches “the limit." Half of the time the rink is either converted into a miniature pond with facilities for water-hockey, or presents a decidedly interesting landscape whose salient features are snow drifts of varying size. In spite of these difficulties, there are in the Academy enough devotees of the sport to make up a team which always gives a creditable account of itself. It is difficult to compare hockey, as a game, with our other sports. It lacks the quick, delicate movements of fencing and the cold precision of baseball, but in team-work closely resembles basketball. Like football and basketball, it is a whirlwind struggle from whistle to whistle, and requires speed and stamina and prompt action in seizing the fleeting opportunities offered for scoring. The play is fast, furnishing plenty of excitement, and the frequent collisions and spills only serve to add zest to the game from the spectator s standpoint. The schedule, like last year's, is a stiff one. and consists of eight games. Thus far this year we have been most fortunate in having good ice for practice, and the results have been apparent in the two games already played. The individual players on the team arc good. Harmon being particularly excellent. With the able coaching of Lieut. Bartlett, we should, provider! the ice continues good, develop a team that will cope successfully with any college seven. The team is greatly indebted to Lieut. Kent for the good rink he has placed at their disposal and the excellent condition in which it is kept under his supervision. No members of the team will be lost by graduation this year, a fact which makes the outlook for next year exceedingly bright. 33PIRST TKAM Harmon. M. F... Harris......... VlNKR..........

One might say that it has grown to l c a custom for rain to descend on the selected date. If such proves the case hereafter, it has been suggested that the real date be kept well guarded and a fictitious one announced (preferably a drill day). With the continued rain of almost three days, the turf track on the plain was in a very soggy condition, and by no means conducive to fast performances. The morning of June 13th. however, produced real June-like sunshine, and attended by keen rivalry between the classes, the 17th Annual Field Day was inaugurated at 9.00 A. M.. M. S. T. The meet early developed into a struggle between the second and third classes, with the fourth class making it interesting. It is to be regretted that the first class was not represented as a class, but only by a few individual entries. With their strong team entered, no doubt some of the events would have resulted differently, and perhaps the outcome of the meet altered. It behooves each class hereafter not to let this, practically the only open opportunity to stimulate class spirit, be neglected. In spite of the adverse conditions, there were a few feats worthy of note.

Now, however, twelve or thirteen of the Northern colleges, quite a number of preparatory schools, and many athletic clubs are represented by teams, and it is truly an American sjjort. Everywhere it is introduced it immediately becomes popular, and there is never a lack of candidates. In the spring of 1909, the game was taken up at West Point as an experiment. While the season of four games was not wholly successful, still it was sufficiently satisfactory to give Lacrosse a recognized place among the minor sports. Last spring fifty men turned out for the squad, and of these more than thirty-five weathered the long season in spite of the counter-attractions of baseball, tennis, and riding. The schedule contained only one college team, but the others were of such a class that the record of an undefeated season remains an enviable one. This year the schedule will be one which will test the Army’s strength to the utmost, including as it does Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, and the University of Toronto 1010 Scores Columbia, 3; Army, 4.

From the present outlook tennis rackets will not be in demand for some time to come; Execution Hollow, the haven of tennis lovers and spoonoids, the oasis of the sun-parched plain, with its shady nooks for dress-coat-less swains and excellent courts for the real enthusiasts of the game, is a thing of the past. No longer will the ping of rubber sphere against lacing soothe our ears during the long summer afternoons, but rather the roar of War from the brand-new mortar pit and the sharp cry of “Re-e-e-lay!” as the specially detailed members of the first class prepare for the Sandy Hook trip. The whereabouts of the new courts has not as yet been determined. During the past season the game has had its usual number of devotees, and a great deal of interest was shown in the tournament held during the summer. The usual obstacles were encountered in running off the matches, and as a result the singles were never decided. The doubles, however, were completed. Sad tier and Do rst, 13, carrying off the honors. Plans were in progress for holding some matches in the spring with outside teams, but with the loss of the courts this will be impossible. This is to be regretted, for we will not only lose the pleasure of witnessing the clever tennis which such contests generally call forth, but also lose the opportunity of measuring the ability of our racket wielders. 141(The 1010 (Tournament tibingtrs Mooney—bye Palmer l Johnson • Johnson, A.

It is now with the recognition of the Athletic Council established as a permanent sport. This development is due particularly to the patience and earnestness of Mr. Jenkins, who since his appointment as instructor has endeavored to arouse interest in and put the game on a good, substantial footing. About twenty-five men are now actively engaged in wrestling, and beside the annual spring tournament which was so successfully inaugurated last year, permission has been obtained for a wrestling meet with one of the colleges. Arrangements are being made to this end now, with good prospects of success. In wrestling, as in fencing, the training is carried on without much encouragement or applause, and in a quiet and unassuming manner. (It is doubtful, due to the thick padding underfoot, if the dexterous fall represented below was heard even in an adjacent room.) Those who go in for it plug away during the late afternoons, throwing each other around and circling the wind-producing running track. It is hardly realized that there is a wrestling squad until the limelight is focused on an exhibition or a meet. Then you envy the wads of muscle the grappler has covered himself with, and wonder why you didn't go out and learn to handle vourself like he docs. -+—•I' 4' 43£fje (Team Captain, Richards, ii.

To the average spectator, uninstructed in the game, it seems merely a crowd of galloping ponies wildly chasing the ball batted hither and thither apparently without system. A lady in India once said that the game was nothing more than a cloud of dust and bad language. For one who has been on the polo-flat here, the cloud of dust is by no means a myth, and one more "pipe” may be added to the first classman's category—"Hope for a good turf polo-field among the possibilities of the new West Point.” As to the bad language, it has proved to be an unnecessary adjunct (?). It is an acknowledged fact that nothing so improves horsemanship as polo. In all games quickness of eye and manual dexterity are essential, but in this particular one the players must combine team play and individual expert ness to a degree not equalled elsewhere. We should all recognize the benefit derived from cultivating such characteristics, especially to an officer. The acme of expertness cannot be hoped for with the short time available for practice here, but a very good foundation may be laid for future development. As to the history of polo at the Academy, it was not introduced here until 1895, though played as early as 600 B. C. in Persia, and innovated in America about 1876. And it is stretching the term a bit to call those early attempts polo, as cavalry horses served as mounts and no pad-saddles were available. The possibilities of the game gradually l ccame recognized here, and in 1900 about thirty Western ponies were 45purchased; then, with proper equipment, polo began to awaken interest among first classmen, to whom the sport is confined. Nineteen Three was the first class to take it up enthusiastically. The acquisition of twelve new ponies during the spring of that year helped materially, and the first match game with a visiting team was played. The succeeding classes have not allowed the interest to die down, but rather have increased it. The wave of polo popularity which has swept the country during the past few years has been felt at West Point, as shown by the augmented stable of ponies and the increasing proportion of members of the outgoing class who play and become attached to the game. The stable now numbers fifty-one ponies, thirty of which have been purchased since 1907. The majority of them are well trained and understand the game as well as (or better than) their riders do, while the others accomplish their purjHJse by calling forth all the latent horsemanship possessed by the man astride. Nineteen Eleven had its first opportunity to play during the second week of last summer’s encampment. Until the latter part of July every other day was devoted to stick and ball practice and to learning the rudiments of the game. Then company teams were organized and a tournament started. These games were very interesting and well contested, and continued until the end of Camp Hawkins. Then the various teams wen-broken up by the advent of the football season, leaving undecided the final game between the teams of “F” and “E” companies. During the fall, practice was continued on Wednesday and Saturday after- 146noons, and games between picked teams were played when the weather permitted. A cadet team will probably be picked next spring, and there are prospects of playing a team from Squadron “A” of New York, as was done last year, besides being pitted against the Officers’ team in match games. Too much credit cannot be given to Lieut. De Armond for his patience and efforts in our behalf. What progress we have made is mainly due to his instruction and encouragement. Capts. Henry, Long, and Darrah, and Lieuts. Cooper. Allin, and Zell coached the various company teams, and their efforts were greatly appreciated. Companp (Trams “2T Bowl by 1. Hoisington 1.

A., an organization for the promotion of Christian fellowship and Christian character in cadet life, is influencing to-day, as in the past, the hearts and lives of many members of the Corps. To instill into the characters of cadets lasting Christian virtues, and to send into the Army active Christian men, constitutes the chief aim of the Association. During the thirty years of its existence, the Association has accomplished much good through its various activities, and is ever striving to accelerate the pace of progress in extending the sphere of its usefulness and influence. Weekly meetings are held in Kendrick Hall on Sundays after supper. These meetings afford an opportunity to get together and hear some of the most prominent college V. M. C. A. workers. During the past year we have been very fortunate in having with us Y. M. C. A. secretaries, visiting clergymen, and others who have delivered interesting and beneficial addresses dealing with the work in the Army of this world-wide movement. To attract the interest and co-operation of officers is the earnest desire of the Army Y. M. C. A. Its efforts to better the mental and spiritual welfare of the enlisted man is for the good of the service, and surely we as officers can in some way aid this good cause. It is through the Bible study pursued during the winter months that the Association reaches most of the men in the Corps. Classes led by cadets meet in barracks once a week throughout this period. The study during the past winter was devoted to the 156Acts, with an excellent work, “New Studies in Acts," as a guide and help. The leaders were greatly assisted in the preparation of the lesson each week in the Leaders’ Normal Class conducted by Lieutenant Fiske and Lieutenant Me Kell, whose interest and instruction caused the course to lx; so successful. Other services of the Association are the supplying of teachers for the Sunday School, the publication of the annual handlxx k, and the maintenance of a reading room containing the leading papers and magazines, and open to all classes. Since 1899 the Association has been granted the privilege of sending a delegation to the Students’ Conference at North field, and last year the Army delegation comprised seven First Classmen and five Third Classmen. The conference is a source of information and inspiration for every college represented. The Students' Conference at Northfield has a spirit all its own. This spirit permeates the very atmosphere; it makes the strange face a friendly one; it characterizes the inspiring meetings, and one soon finds himself entering into and enjoying this spirit to the fullest. Bach minute of time spent at Northfield furnishes something good for future use. The morning is devoted to the study of those industrial, social, and religious problems with which the Y. M. C. A. is grappling. The afternoons arc mainly set aside for recreation and athletics, and West Point was fairly successful in tennis, in the field meet, but particularly so in baseball. Maine and Dartmouth were defeated, but we then fell before the onslaught of the victorious Yale team. The early part of each evening was spent on Round Top, a little knoll hallowed by the grave of Dwight L. Moody. Just as the glow of the setting sun faded in the West, the meeting ended, and the delegation repaired to the auditorium, where an address was delivered nightly. Throughout the entire conference Mr. F. A. Andrews, always a friend to the West Pointer, was kind enough to act as advisor to our delegation, and his efforts in this direction were greatly appreciated. All too soon the ten days were over and reluctantly we turned our backs on Northfield. Perhaps some day in the dim future the enchanting scenes and the jovial faces of the men who met there may be forgotten, but the spirit which was there fostered and the ideals cherished are memories which will never lose their starry luster.

The history of the Dialectic Society begins nearly a century ago, when a debating club was organized for those cadets who had literary inclinations, but it was not until 1824 that it took the name it now bears, it grew rapidly after being organized, and for a while played an important role in the life of the Corps. You will still find the old Dialectic Hall over the Xorth Sally-port, and although worn with age and mellow with tradition, it is still filled with associations and reminiscences not easily forgotten. Here in this hall. Indore the Civil War. many arguments were brought up in which were formed convictions of right and wrong which undoubtedly played an important part in shaping our country’s history; and it was here that such men as Grant, Thomas, Pope. Longstreet. and Hancock met and discussed from both sides those momentous questions which they were later to decide by such arguments as the art and science of war afforded. In looking over the rolls of this society we find inscribed therein names which are not only impressed on the mind of every cadet, but also indelibly stamped on the memory of every soldier. The time-worn pages of history are still here to tell how gallantly and nobly they died and how gloriously they ascended the ladder of fame. After the Civil War. the society declined in prominence, .and finally became a reading-room for the upper-classmen, having as its chief function the production of the 100th Night Play. To-day. nearly a century after its birth, we still find pleasant associations and fragrant memories of the past in its time-stained walls; and, when we consider its connection with the Xation’s honor roll, its present tendency to promote good-fellowship and good-will along with affording a few moments of recreation and enjoyment to all. surely we cannot say that it has failed in its purpose. 160NOTE books and pencils in hand, wearing raincoats in various degrees of permeability, the Class of 1911 wandered in a herd through the dripping by-paths of Central Park on the morning of May 9. 1910. Reaching the Metropolitan Museum, we plunged into a careful study of its treasures, our principal care being to faithfully transcribe every bit of information found on the exhibits into our notes, so that upon our return to West Point our art-less minds might have some foundation upon which to write a two-thousand-word thesis. Half of us explored the architectural and sculptural exhibits downstairs in the morning, and half studied the picture galleries on the second floor. Lunch in the cafe gave a change of program, and after a post-prandial cigar or skag in the directors’ rooms, each half changed places with the other and the studies were resumed. We were released at four o'clock. Some of us visited friends, and others who had no acquaintances in need took machines and tried to do the town. Riverside Drive. Broadway, Chinatown, each had its quota of grav-clad joyriders until the clan reunited at the Astor for dinner. And then began the checks! The first sergeants held check rolls before dinner, and they held them again after dinner. So casualties were found to have resulted from the sudden change from Mess Hall to Indian Room fare, and we began the march to Madison Square, where, on the kind invitation of Col. Cody, we were to witness the evening performance of the Wild West Show. Seated in the post of honor, our breasts swelled with pride when Buffalo Bill included the “future officers of the United States Army" in his introductory speech. Before the show was well under way each of us wished that he had lived forty years earlier so that graduation might mean his being thrust into the real Wild West. Indians and cowboys and soldiers received their share of our appre- 161ciation; but our greatest enthusiasm was for the cow-girls, who created a regular ovation every time they rode by the class. All things have an end, and after the last act of the performance we were taken behind the scenes to meet the Old Scout, and on behalf of the Corps to receive from him a rifle as a prize for marksmanship. Mutual expressions of good-will were many, and it was with regret that the class finally emerged from the Garden. A half-hour’s freedom allowed us time for nothing but a little mingling with the after-theatre crowds, and then it was back to Garrison again. Arrived there, we were treated to a wonderful exhibition of water transportation of troops, but after many vicissitudes the whole class managed to struggle up the West Point bank by four o'clock, and with an over-shoulder glimpse of Halley’s Comet added to the already heterogeneous mixture in our tired brains, we sought our downy couches. 162KAD1T10N had it, and to our observation it had seemed, that the transition period from second to first classman was one of the most peaceful two weeks of a Kaydet’s career, when all he had to do was to get acquainted with camp again while he was waiting for the tailors to sew on his third service stripe. For this reason we were a happy crowd who tied our boodle up in blankets, had the Quartermaster carry it to camp, and then moved our belongings over to take possession in one of the wettest rainstorms that ever soaked through a Cadet Store raincoat. Alas for our delusions! J. Pluvius couldn't dampen our spirits, and after a three-days trial gave up the attempt. But the T. D., who have it on the elements in some ways, were not at all discouraged, and took up the struggle where Pluvius left off. They began by teaching us to set up an aparejo, and sending us to interminable sessions of Sunday-school, where six different tacs taught us the regulations which govern us in six different ways. And all this, mind you. during those two weeks that have been set aside as a time for recuperation “since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary"! Those of us who could, donned cool cits and ran for New York’s thirst emporiums, and well, the rest of us grinned and bore it with true cadet stoicism. When we were all back at the old stand again, they began to see how many drills a first classman was capable of attending in one morning. We began with Infantry at seven-fifteen and never halted long enough for a brew until we dragged our balk-sore bodies back up the hill from the Engineer dock at noon. One TME IQI might see desperate-looking first classmen examining the worn sjx ts in their riding-breeches and figuring out by probability and chance whether they would lose a Christmas leave through having to buy new ones. Horses? Why we just became centaurs for the summer—rode everything from a seven hundred and fifty pound jx lo pony to a fourteen hundred pound Artillery wheeler. Some of the men who at first tried to shoot, play polo and spoon all at the same time began to drop out. and the majority of us picked one branch and specialized. The result was that we had some good polo games, got the highest percentage of marksmen ever made, and well, a casual look in on one of our hops which ran to capacity three nights a week would show that we didn’t fall down as spoonoids even in spite of the opprobrium of l eing the “L. P-est First Class ever,” which someone thoughtfully handed us in the early days of our struggle. Camp Hawkins was the most peaceful camp that we have e v e r experienced, hazing was put down in the l eginning and 164never given the opportunit y to rise again, and there were no iireworks or other grave disorders. Let it become a matter of record here, all talk to the contrary notwithstanding, that the First Class went to camp with the idea of behaving itself, and we believe that we did behave fairly well even to the end. We had sacrificed six men on the altar of a hazing investigation as Yearlings, and a dozen more had trod the narrow path as a penance for unwonted patriotism in Camp Ruger, and we wanted to enjoy ourselves and be spared unpleasantness. Boating privileges from retreat to tattoo were taken from us at first; and the First Class Club, after having elected a Board of Governors, made no further progress. The boating privilege was finally restored; the club remained a mere tradition all summer. All too soon the time for moving to barracks approached and we looked back 165regretfully on the work and play we had enjoyed for we did enjoy the work as well—and wished that the last few weeks could be longer. The circus day came; the next day we spent the morning on our playgrounds about the cross-roads, and the afternoon saw the migration to barracks. We turned over the camp to the Yearlings, wished them luck, and then turned out a yell,—and if the “Never again" was only a half-hearted one, there was good reason for it. 166ESI I 11IES in honor of the Declaration of Independence at Camp Hawkins really ran a previi of an hour and thirty-five minutes. At precisely ten-twenty-five p. m., on July 3rd, when the company commanders were craning their necks toward the guard-tent to sec if the corp on duty was awake and watching the clock, there came a small, still voice that was somehow foreign to the usual noises of camp life. It dimly reminded one of getting up before reveille'to bone for a Descrip writ could it be .... Ah, an alarm clock! The quill in whose street the thing had dared to assert itself, started leisurely in search of it. Just as he was al out to grasp and throttle it. lo! bedlam broke loose all over camp. Other small, still voices sj oke forth from the hedges, underneath plebes’ tents, the trees in the general parade, and even the mail box. Recognizing that the crucial moment had arrived, the sleepy makes awoke with a start, and began a systematic search for the clocks. Reserves from the Tactical Department, displaying their usual promptitude, were shortly on the scene, and the combined forces began the process of gathering in the noise - breeders. Many were the methods used. Tommy Lawrence threw each merrily-chiming clock against the long-suffering tree-trunk in the general parade, thus effectually 167silencing them. Prank Hicks was no less efficient until he encountered oneold war-horse that had been handed down from the days of Grant and Lee, which refused to t e still. Pajama-dad, he danced around it, getting in a lick with a cot-stick now and then between peals of the bell, until one was reminded of the trials of Jerome’s three men with their pineapple can. By midnight silence reigned supreme, but to Ik perfectly in control of the situation, the first class makes walked the streets until four A. M. Reveille was held at five o’clock, and the parade of the band through camp was the occasion for the usual turnout of patriots in greater or less states of fancy dress principally less! The legitimate celebration took place at ten-thirty in the morning in front of the library. Bowley first read the Declaration in so striking a way as to cause the collapse of the tent-fly. Repairs being made. Pink Hardy proceeded with his memorable address, ending with the glowing tribute to American womanhood that cinched his chances with the Rocks crowd for the rest of the summer. The national salute was fired “on the meridian," and one more anniversary of our freedom had gone down in West Point’s history. 168TARGET • ECO® o UR success on the target range must be ascribed in great measure to the care and patience of our instructors. The efficacy of our preliminary practice is evidenced by the fact that, in spite of the new Firing Regulations, we qualified more men as marksmen than has any previous class. He who would become a shot must needs devote practically all his day to the work. One-third of the class attends daily from seven-fifteen until twelve-ten. Usually you get back late with only five minutes in which to remove the grime with which you are covered, and you go to dinner looking like a stoker and feeling warmer than the condemned. After dinner there is voluntary firing all afternoon to which everybody who can goes, for after three years pointing and aiming drill it is a relief to see what you really can hit. Darkness does not put an end to your labors, for after supper comes the grand rush for the nitro-solvent and the company ramrod, neither of which can be found usually having been carefully "put away" by someone who has cleaned his piece early and gone out spooning! On the range it’s different. Have you ever had a mule kick you in the same spot five times in quick succession and repeat the operation at intervals during the day? If so, you can appreciate how our shoulders felt after a day with our Springfields. Some days you would have thought you were at a Spanish bullfight, for all you could see would be the waving of a line of red flags in a cloud of dust. But when the little white disk did come up, your satisfaction was as complete as that of the matador after making a telling thrust. At last comes the day for record shooting. If you are lucky you get what you are after, if not—you get left. In the one case you tell your friends that you would have made it, only someone told you that the wind was at three o’clock instead of nine; in the other you assure them that it was perfectly simple and that you could have made it any day in the week. Maybe you shot on the wrong target and made all the bull’s-eyes for the man who got high score. Whatever course you pursue in your explanations, ' 169TME IQII however, the fact remains that you either made it or did not make it, and this is the real issue. All in all. target practice is an excellent way to put in the time, and you are always glad to go. Interest is keen, and you are well repaid for your work.

R Slincy 170TO the lover of the Mounted Service, the Friday hikes of First Class Camp are a most welcome break in camp routine; to the infantryman, they are the final link in the long strong chain of soirees. Setting aside likes and dislikes, their introduction has certainly brought the cadet into closer contact with field service than anything else has ever done. To be suddenly placed in charge of the wheel team of a gun-carriage, or to become a trooper in heavy-marching order, without anyone to do the unpleasant work for him— either one breeds knowledge and self-reliance in a man. Having one’s leg made black and blue by an unwieldy tongue, and eating the dust at the rear of a cavalry column, are not particularly delightful occurrences, but schooling by actual experience is learning never to t e forgotten. Most of the work was over by sundown at least, and all that remained was supper, an impromptu concert, and bed in a dog-tent. Usually about two o'clock in the morning—the time depended on your bootlick with the acting top-sergeant-somebody kicked your foot persistently until you turned out, counted a row of ever-shifting horses, and began to shiver through your part of the "running guard." Perhaps you would be called upon to disentangle a horse in the course of the tour, then you might have the unpleasant sensation of having the back of your neck carefully explored by some wakeful and over-curious animal who had absolutely no part in the matter in hand. Then you would kick the next man's foot, crawl back to bed again, and be just comfortably asleep when reveille »7»would sound, and you’d have to get up to a prospect of breakfast, stables, boots and saddles, and hike with inspection hovering threateningly close in the background. Maybe the work of these soirees was hard, but no one begrudges the time spent in learning about things as they will be in that mythical future, when Army Blue, with all its terrors for the shavetail lieutenant, shall have been reached. 172ALMOST the entire population of West Point gathered about a tan-bark arena, two bands of real circus music, and a j)crfcct August evening this was the opening of the Smoothest Show on Earth. Whatever doubts might have been entertained as to its success were promptly dispelled, and the Corps set to work to make an evening that might go down in history. The impatient crowd attacked the camp hedge about eight o’clock and in a few minutes were admitted to the general parade, there to be harangued bv vociferous barkers, jollied by clowns, and trampled by strange beasts. Pink lemonade and peanuts were distributed, and the side-shows opened up their wonderful congresses of freaks and dancers. In among the crowd one encountered here and there a cowboy in chaps, an Indian in full war-paint, foreign-looking zouaves, cavalrymen, all the performers of a bona fide Wild West. Then the cowboy band ojK-ned up in front of the grand entrance and the barkers began to gather the crowd for Professor Sweeney’s high dive—the free open-air performance. This illustrious entertainer having made his miraculous descent into a bucket of lemonade, the awe-stricken crowd was admitted to the big show. And a big show it was! After the overture, the assembly was sounded, the ringmaster announced the grand entrance, and the greatest spectacle that the Plain has ever beheld was begun. First a crowd of painted and beaded Indians, riding gaudily-trapped ponies, made a noisy entrance. then the cowboys—they really were cowboys— “ y ah-y ahed" and “yip-yipped" their wild race about the arena. The band changed to ‘‘Garry Owen," and entered the Seventh Cavalry detachment, the applause which greeted 173them evidencing the martial character of the audience. Then the zouaves, the clowns, the acrobats and animals, until one wondered what next. When these last had entered there came a hush. The band played a fanfare, “William Bison!” announced the master of ceremonies, and, cantering about the arena, sombrero sweeping, snowy locks waving, gracious smiles for everyone, rode the Old Scout in a way that made the audience pinch themselves to be sure they were not again children experiencing their first thrill at the real performance. “Ladies and gentlemen—permit me— to introduce to you—a Congress—of the Rough Riders of the World!” A blare of brass from the band, a kaleidoscopic circling of mounted figures, a last bow from Col. Bison, and one pinched oneself again, just to be sure. Then came the main program—war-dancing, howling, redskins; rope-throwing, fearless cowboys, and agile cavalrymen, all these alternating with clowns, tumblers and acrobats, trained animals and zouaves, until one gave up the pinching and let one's mind travel back to the last time one had crawled under the side of a real big top to see a real show. For two hours the spec- 174TME IQII nowii_ztRM •tfT' -V tacle lasted, acts ever changing, audience ever pleased, all thoughts of drills, skins, and kindred soirees banished from everyone's m i n d s. When the last plebe zouave had scrambled over the wall and the last, clown had withdrawn, the band struck up “Auld Lang Syne" and we were brought to a realization that First Class Camp with all its joys and sorrows was over. Again the whole troupe entered, tired but happy, again the Old Scout bowed and smiled a farewell speech, a “1911, Never Again'' yell, and Camp Hawkins had seen her last entertainment with three classes present. The last of our friends filed slowly out, the last of the lemonade vanished, and when “Taps" sounded the last tired kaydet murmured sleepily, “That was the greatest ever." The thanks of the Corps, and of the Illumination Committee in particular, are due to Colonel Carson and Captain Beacham for their interest in the erection of the arena, to Captain Henry for his kindness in allowing the use of the riding hall for rehearsals, horses, ponies, and equipment, to Captain Summerall for the use of mountain gun and ammunition, and to all the other officers without whose aid the presentation of the show would have been impossible. 753 in 1 Circus anb 3 ilb 1$e$t PRESENTED BY lEljf ©. .

High side, low side,- Last few tickets on the lottery—the one-cent chance is still in the hat. Try your luck drop your money in the hole and get it doubled— Three-card monte here!” An ever-changing chorus assails your ears from the length of the camp street, and from the tent behind your back comes a low. humdrum sound. "Big Dick from Boston eighty miles from home Phoebe — Little Joe—four's my point—ninety days—seven come eleven!" You rub your eyes and wonder if you have been suddenly set clown in Reno, Nevada. The place is certainly sufficiently a desert but no. it is only the first class camp at Fort Hancock! Rain and mosquitoes and sand! Yes. but uu contraire, dead-beating, seabathing. and a bully good mess. Also a six-forty-five reveille! Did we enjoy it ? Well. I guess. Men that have l een overworked all summer can realize what it meant to be sent off on a week’s excursion, the first three days of which were really in the nature of a rest cure. While it rained we spread our ponchos over the leaks in the tents and slept -ye gods, how we did sleep! When the sun shone we would yawn through a drill or so, return to camp with an appetite like a horse, and then after dinner would make tracks for the beach. At last we began to fire the big guns, and those who wanted the coast artillery for Tea-sons of their own resolved to grin and bear it. and those who did not want it thanked their stars that they did not. The record we made with the six-inch guns at “Battery %Son-of-a-Gun" was most gratifying—our figure of merit being 123.5. We worked well with the ten-inch rifles, too. although we did not equal the first record. Frankeand Dargue were wounded in the action and went about with their faces plastered up in truly heroic fashion. The last day of our stay, the 12-inch mortars in Battery McCook were fired. This practice went off as well as could be expected with the |K or condition of the materiel. After the last round had been fired and the disappointed gunners were examining the mortars 77for crooks in the bore, it was rumored that McCleary was among the missing. It had been his duty to wield an oil can. but the juice of many brown weeds had made his oil unnecessary, and himself disgusted. He was found later in the next pit, muttering to himself. “Pools, trifling in the face of death!’’ The trip up the bay differed from the trip down only in one essential particular. To feed eighty-five men. there were furnished twelve fried chickens! Alas, the little twelve-eighty-fifths per capita only served to whet our appetites for more, and more there was not. Arrived back at West Point, we were treated to a delightful demonstration of the field bakery, and after a few more kind attentions from the T. I), were allowed to find some clean clothes, and beat it for the showers. From these places shortly could have been heard resounding the new parody: “I’ve got sand in my whiskers and sand between my toes. And sand in my eyebrows, and sand up my nose— If there's any place I haven't sand, it’s a place I didn't look. I'm the original sandy man from Sandy Hook.” 17SJJrartirp iHarrh ON August 22, 1910, after a rest of two years, the venerable Hudson was once again crossed and recrossed by the likewise venerable “Highlander,” which bore each trip a martial cargo that boded ill for the peace and quietude of the other bank. The change was one much appreciated by the “belligerent forces,” for after two years of the wild barrenness of the country to the West and South, the open, cultivated land of Putnam and Westchester Counties came as a most welcome surprise. The first day we betook ourselves by various routes to the state grounds at Peekskill, the train going on ahead while the Browns fought out an advance and rear guard problem with the Blues, and the road- and position-sketchers fought out the mapping question with the terrain. Peekskill was more than a mile from camp, but nevertheless a good percentage of the lower classes tasted its pleasures. The first class, meanwhile, tasted again the delights of stables, or else spent the afternoon at the Engineer tent figuring out what their maps meant. The environs of the little town of Peekskill witnessed next morning a pageant that will live long in the memories of the few natives present. Headed by the hell-cats with the “Jolly Life" in full swing, infantry, cavalry, and artillery in turn passed through the main street, everyone trying to be intensely military— why, no one knew! The cavalry in particular was worthy of note. Only about half of the troopers had carried the knee-chafing sabers, and these were hastily Hashed out and passed to the Hank men of sets of fours and to the acting makes! The day's maneuvre terminated in a glorious charge which almost eclipsed San Juan Hill. “Assault of a defensive position” it was called, and the only fault lay in the over-zealous, multi-commanded, kavdet cavalry, who, having spent the entire morning on foot trying to get in touch with the enemy, came suddenly upon his cavalry behind a stone wall, and hastened things in the same way that someone did in Cuba, by starting before the proper time. Camp that night was near Lake Mohansic, an utterly dead place, whose rocky-bottomcd swimming hole and pop-selling camp follower were the only redeeming features. The next day the infantry had a nine-mile walk in the early morning dew, and then endeavored to cut a well-defended railroad line. After much expenditure of ammunition the desired end was accomplished by chalking “DYNAMITE” on the ties of a two-hundred yard section, and the Browns were jubilant until evening, when they learned that their damage would only ha ve kept t he enemy back some two hours at most. We camped about two and a half miles from Lake Mahopac, and that pretty spot was greatly disturbed by the invasion of travel-worn savages, who descended upon it by every means from automobiles to borrowed plow-horses. Our restrictions were for the 183first time raised, and we were allowed to attend the hop. Thursday the problem was a delaying action. and one feature of the engagement was particularly dwelt upon in the ensuing lecture. This was the annihilation of the pack-train by the Blue artillery under Richards and Schimel-fenig. Another event is worthv of note, though it was not officially recognized, namely, the raid by the cadet cavalry under Blunt. With thoughts of Morgan and Mistchenko in his brain, he led the way in a wild dash across country in an attempt to capture the aforementioned Blue guns. The maneuvre, though unsuccessful, served to greatly increase the interest of the members of the detachment in the newly-promulgated idea of developing cavalry into cross-country couriers, although perhaps it did not tend to increase the efficiency of the mounts for the next day's program. Camp was made in the backyards of Mohcgan Lake, and the evening was enlivened by the church fair and the dance at the Inn. Do you remember that barb-wire fencer Certainly you do didn't you fall over it running a late on taps? On Friday came the defense of a pass. After a 203-Metre Hill act on the part of an infantry company under Frankc, recall sounded and we found a five-mile hike into camp. Vc were tired and disgusted, but, oh, what a waking up there was to come! The few hardies who braved the mile-long hill that separated camp from the lake returned with glowing stories which caused a hasty exodus of every able-bodied man in camp. A baseball game was played with a visiting V. M. C. A. contingent, in which our hastily-organized team went down to defeat. In other branches, however. the Corps remained unbeaten, and any reputation we may ever have had with the fair sex was certainly upheld. We can never forget Murray and Calvert with their friends in the row boat, who took station in the middle of the lake and called to every man that 184passed, “Hey, what do you think of our L. P.'s?" The ferns, all-confiding and all-unconversant in kaydet slang, were immensely boot-licked! A grand hop at the Lakeview House ended the ceremonies, and ii was on the way home therefrom that the only casualty of the hike occurred. Jim Burt collided with a stone wall, to the great damage of his fair countenance. The retreat to Garrison was completed in record time, and only once was contact secured with the Blues. The open hills over which this engagement was fought gave us a final chance to see what a real engagement looked like, and the drama that we there enacted was a fitting close to the week’s work. The whole country was the l est we have yet travelled over, and gave men whose very souls cried out against the brush-fighting of former years, a much appreciated glimpse of service in a country where you can see far enough ahead to tell what the other fellow is doing. 185Guy V. (to head of column on cavalry hike)-—“It’s a very good plan to speak to the inhabitants of the country you're passing through; it increases their confidence in you.” (This is duly absorbed by the Kaydets. Five minutes later they pass a farm-house, where a young woman is leaning over the gate.) Guy V. (cordially) ‘‘Good morning!” Young Woman (enthusiastically) “ Oh, you kid!I!" Instructor (to squad) “We halt here two minutes. Give your horses fifteen swallows of water." Hoisington “ Do they tether horses closer together on the picket line in winter than in summer so that they can keep warm?” Instructor Is that a store up on the hill?" Jake Bagby “ Xo, sir; it's a saloon." Instructor—“ Do they sell Bull Durham there?” Jake “ No, sir; but they have Duke's Mixture." Scene Practice March.

A misunderstanding in regard to the horse-show of 1909 caused many of the best riders of the class to remain at home. We would like to correct any wrong impression that might be gained by others by stating that the horse-show was an immense success, and thoroughly appreciated by every cadet that attended. Aside from any mean thoughts of dead-beating inspection and confinement, every man was inspired with a desire to learn more of horses and their ways, and the afternoon’s trip certainly proved to be an interesting one. The cavalry plugs ranged up well alongside the thoroughbreds of the Garrison exhibitors in everything except jumping. The jumps were higher than those to which our horses had lxien accustomed. Again, the cadet horses had l cen practiced on ground that furnished a good foothold, while at Garrison the takeoff was very slippery. What little grass that remained had dried up on the hard ground, making it so slippery that many even of the fine hunters refused to try the jumps. Even at that, the cadet exhibitors were not wholly excluded in the comj cti-tion. Estes held up the honor of the riding-hall, winning third place by taking Dorst over the jumps in excellent form. His riding was perfect, and besides satisfying the most exacting requirements of our riding instructors, lie made every cadet there proud of him. The other men that entered in the jumps were Gilbreath, Booton, Surlcs, Cowles, Hardy, Lucas, Dillman. and McKinney. They were not so fortunate as to have high jumpers, and their horses refused to try. Miss Harriman. who won first honor on a beautiful chestnut gelding, is to be complimented upon her wonderful riding, as well as Mr. H. F. Osborn, Jr., who took the second place. Where the cadet competitors, however, clearly outclassed the others was in the polo pony competition, and but for the fast pony ridden by Miss Burton, would have taken every place. The competition consisted in a race between six flags set ten feet apart. The win- 187ning f this race counted 75 per cent., while manners and conformation, which were judged by Mr. Devereux Milburn, counted 25 per cent. Schwcnck won first place on Punch. It is certainly a credit to his good horsemanship to have defeated those against whom he was pitted. Me was far ahead of all others, riding at a fast gallop and never once changing his gait between the flags or at the turns. Mis pony did well in the test that was afterwards made by Mr. Milburn. McKinney handled in an excellent manner the fiery little Cherry, owned by Lieut. I)e Armond. It was a difficult task to put such a willful pony between the flags at a gallop, but be it said to his honor that in spite of that fact he won third place. All the other places in the contest were won by the other cadets that participated. McLaurin, Sandeford. Lucas, Gilbreath. Wyche. and Drollingcr all came in for their share. The athletic contest was given by the cadets only. The grounds were not so favorable for such work as the more inviting tan-bark of the riding hall, but luckily no man had need of soft places. The contest consisted of single horse and double horse stunts in which Surles, Christian. Betcher, Gildart, Richards, Mooney. Conard, Walker, Booton, Baade, Bowley, and Wheeler took part. Wheeler took first and Surles second place in the single horse athletic work, while Surles and Christian took first, and Bowley and Wheeler took second place in the double horse stunts. The whole show was surely a success as far as the first classmen were concerned; every man enjoyed the trip and was glad that he attended. 188 cTi AfiD OTM6R3 V -Sjunbrrbtlj i2tgf)t J§ f)oU) A FTEK many trials and vicissitudes, the Dialectic Society at last succeeded in presenting the Hundredth Night Show this year on March 4th. The conditions were slightly more difficult to contend with than usual, the time for rehearsals being more limited than ever la-fore. However, due to the help of Mr. Basil Savidge, the play finally rounded into shape by the last week in February. ( ur thanks arc due to him this year as in the past; and we are also under obligation to Mr. Philip Egner. Teacher of Music, for his music and orchestration of the entire play, and to the band for their co-operation and support. ’"The Follies" served to present an example to us. and to those who follow, of the terrible events which may precede the happy hour of graduation, and incidentally they reflected some of our foibles and weaknesses. The action begins with a view of some cadets operating a temj orarily erected mortar primary station on Trophy Point. While at work they are interrupted by Dorothy Dodge and Betty Hopkins, two entrancing West Point summer girls, who come to meet their friends Cadets Arthur Flint and Benny Wilson. Benny and Betty promptly go for a walk, while Arthur, having a good opportunity, decides to propose to Dorothy. He is interrupted several times- -first by Lieut. Ellen, then in succession by Mrs. Gottmcind, an orderly, Benny (who has been deprived of his femme by Lieut. Ellen), and finally by Lieut. Ellen and Mrs Gottmcind together. The latter has come to West Point with her six nieces to inspect the place, and Lieut. Ellen (highly recommended by Benny) shows her around the Post. Lieut. Ellen was also to have provided escorts for the six nieces, but somehow the lonely young ladies were well provided for before lie got around to it. While Lieut. Ellen is busy with his platoon, the course of true love is stopped by an obstacle Arthur has written a letter for his room-mate, who has met with an accident Plus letter is to Ins room-mate's fiancee, but absent-mindedly Arthur has written Dorothy's buttons, photograph breastplate, fried egg. pin. and class ring At the psvehoh’igical cn l-t a lJu,anl cnlcrs and informs the assembled multitude of the cmler allow- mg twenty men to go to Xico Koco to quell a serious in-su r recti on there. A r-thur.liecom-ingsuddcnly sick of life, vo lu 11 leers to go. So does Benny. In the second Act the scene shifts to Camp Dikij 1. 1 a-tion, in the early morning of the lootli Dav 189till June. A sentinel paces slowly back and forth before the "headquarters tent. A challenge rings out through the moist tropical air. and Arthur enters, bringing with him as captive the leader of the Revolutionists. The consequent rejoicings bring the comm a no officer. Major Trembly, on the scene. He thinks it is a mutiny, but finally is made to understand the situation, and orders a lx ard to investigate whether or not the customs of war in like cases were followed. Arthur and Lieut. Ellen give flatly contradictory testimony, the latter having been an eyewitness. They agree, however, that something hup|K ncd, which fact the Major comments utH n. The testimony of the captured leader— obtained by Sertor Pilero, the interpreter was not very satisfactory, owing to the Presidente’s Spanish. The court unanimously decides that the cadet. Arthur, was somewhat to blame, but they promise to give him justice. While the Board has retired to decide on their sentence. Dorothy enters, and is soon joined by Betty and Aunt Carrie, their chaperon. The girls were very anxious to see closely some of the country, and so had follower! the cadet volunteers to Xico Koco. During their conversation, they discover that Benny is making love to a native woman, who cannot understand English, doesn't appreciate the situation, and insists upon making affectionate demonstrations in Betty's presence. Aunt Carrie and Betty leave Benny to free himself of this new incumbrance. Arthur and Dorothy clear away all difficulties, and swear to Ik constant always and forever. At this juncture, the court reappears to announce its verdict, which is fairly lenient, seeing that so much good has l ecn accomplished. The proceedings are interrupted by the arrival of a band of monks, who arouse Lieut. Ellen’s suspicions. He soon discovers that they are not monks, and they are forced 190to admit that they arc the Cadet Choir on another two (lavs'leave, and to prove it thev sing to the court. 1 he proof is conclusive. The new arrivals are greatly disappointed when they discover that the insurrection has been quelled and the war ended, hut they console themselves by remembering that they arc in time to assist the victorious invading army in celebrating the " Hundredth Night." The whole production ranked with the very best of its kind ever given, and every man remotely connected with the alTair deserves great credit. The music as a whole compared very favorably with any of former years, while the chorus numbers and dancing were vastly ahead of anything before attempted. All the principal parts were creditably handled, particularly those which were taken by Gray, Beatty, Bagby, and that star of all impersonators. Malony, whose every gesture caused a titter." Wyche and Holliday made good in the two girls’ parts, and Walmsley, in another suffragette part, was better than ever, the only drawback being the scarcity of his chances to get in aline.

IQ2rSHALL we paint the picture as a splendid, rose-colored mirage seen by the yearling novice, or as it appears to the more sedate first classman whose acquaintance with hops has ripened into cherished friendship? Will it expose the inmost feelings of the enthusiastic maiden returning from her lirst hop, or will it be controlled by the soft-blended memories of the popular cadet-girl whose loyalty to the Grey is measureless? Possibly the view-point will be that of the uncomplaining chaperon, who, as she watches the mingled procession of bell-buttons and flounces, has a wonderful opportunity for observation unbiased by sentiment or illusion. The experiences of the confirmed cadet stag and the bored-looking officer might also advance claims to recognition, but the one only half understands the true inwardness of the occasion, while the other has been so long out of a grey dress-coat that his opinion would scarcely be up-to-date. No, surely neither of these are competent guides. The scribe falters, mentally reaching out for help. Ah! Before him stands a care-free individual with one service stripe on his sleeve and a look of infinite superiority and wisdom on his face. Will he consent to be interviewed? Oh, ves! most assuredly. And. forthwith:— “1 lops ? Say. they are a great invention after a year of plebedom. Remember my first one? Well, rather. Do you know, I d been waiting a whole year to take that femme to that hop. and when it came I was sure in paradise. Music? Yes, I guess there was. That balcony was certainly all to the good that night, though. Moonlight, and shady corners, and somebody in the distance yelled “Furlough,” and my informant raced away in the direction of the sound. I turn back again to my page, and what do I see? Who is this solder-looking man with the retrospective eyes and the sergeant's chevrons? He doesn't wait for an invitation, but starts right in: "Did you ever see so many unforgivable L. P.'s in one room before? I never did. And I’ve had a dance with most of 'em, too. Now I haven't a dance till twenty-seven, and 1 11 hang around and get . My collar's rough on the edge, and ray dress-coat's too tight. That ice-cream had hair-oil in it. Say, who's got the makings?'' A first class buck saunters up mopping his brow. “That orchestra sure plays waltzes like a general fire-alarm!" he pants. “What can I tell you of hops? Yes, I guess I'm a good judge I've been to every one since June, and am going to all the rest. They’re the one real compensation I know of. Why, a man just exists through the week waiting to take the 93Girl to the hop on Saturday night. Yes. she’s here to-night, and I am quite satisfied with the cold fess I made in Engineering this morning she was the sufficient cause thereof. I smoked and dreamed from the time the tac inspected last night, and told the instructor this morning that Bladensburg was the village in Germany where Napoleon with 59.000 men defeated the Austrian Lichtenstein with 88.000!" I glanced down at his ring-finger and found it quite bare. “Will you be glad to see Graduation Hop?" I asked. “Yes, I guess so. But, say, when a file really gets past the seven-furlong post, and looks back along the track, do you know he sometimes wishes he could signal to somebody to decrease the gait. When you get along this far, there s a kind of funny feeling you begin to realize that the “never again" part of Graduation Hop is a lot less cheerful than the farewell part is sad. Yes, you can say of me, ‘He liked it all,’ too!" I gaze about the crowded landing, trying to pick out a type of girl who can tell me their side of the story. Alas! the task is quite hopeless! The cadet-girl has a variety as infinite as it is sweet, and to attempt to find one representative of all. or to combine all in one, is utterly impossible. Here is the girl who darts a glance back over her shoulder at you as she passes (and you congratulate 194yourself that her partner saw her do it), —there, the demure girl who looks up into the battered face of the afternoon's gridiron hero in a way that makes you resolve to turn out for the squad next year. And there is the belle of the past summer's hops, who surveys the floor with an air of calm proprietorship, -has her head been turned just the slightest bit? There's the girl who laughs at vour latest grouch until you are perforce made to laugh also; there's the girl who meets your every attempt with a cold stare of disdain that but drives you farther along the route to happy reveries and poor recitations. There is the , but why continue? Their very numbers mock description,- truly it is useless! Besides, every man has his own star in the brilliant heavens, and to him no words are here necessary. The very best in the world to them all. always, and may the multi-sided cadet-girl ever flourish and remain to cheer succeeding members of the “long grey line” over the rough places in their journey. A sudden stir on the steps and about the doorway, and through the hum of Voices come the strains of the orchestra—the same old tune, but carrying a new meaning from now on— “We’ve not much longer here to stay, For in a month or two- " 95Pi; 4l jVT" fee S « kojdct (ihwlirij or • ............. Ullr Uta Srills I've been a-prancing trooper with my velvet-muzzled steed I've been a sturdy doughboy, always ready when there's need I’ve felt the ten-inch thunder and watched the mortar’s flight. And I've heard the limbers rattle when we're doing "Action right." When I first wore riding-breeches And was marched down to the Hall, They gave me just a bridle, Watering-bridle, that was all (And a horse named Hannibal.) Hannibal was mean and ugly. All his blood had turned to gall. But he let me clamber on him. Then policed me, that was all (Simply heaved me in a sprawl.) Later on I got a neck-strap Tender memories I recall Of dismounts before the hurdle, Same old story Pride and Fall (For the horse was Hannibal.) First Class Year and English saddles-Sweet the lull before the squall When they took our stirrups from us, Loos’ ning-teeth around the-Hall-(Pound-ing-jar ring Han ni-bal.) 99Grooming-kits and hoof-hooks, sixty horses tied in line. Stable guard till daybreak, no yellow-legs in mine! Manicuring equine devils, smearing dope on Saddle sores, Filling forty million nosebags, reeking “horse' from all your jjores. Gee, the cavalry's delightful, dragging stubborn plugs uphill “You ringboned, spavined devil, do you call that standing still?’ But long bout First Class Practice March you hear the kaydets say, “Give me saber and revolver, praise Gawd, I ride to-day!' 200There's a bare stretch of rocky ground up in the hills That Honest John yearly plows, harrows and tills; And when the steel plows have prepared for the crop, The little round seeds in the furrows we drop. Now a kaydct’s not crazy in love with his drills He doesn't go batty with “esthetic thrills" Over "poems of motion " or the “rhythmic beats" Of a drill as it's seen from the Visitors' Seats. But it's mighty good fun digging furrows so wide For a shell can eat chunks out of any hillside— And the little round seeds are so carefully spread When the shrieking shrapnel bursts overhead! After four years of going to drill every day, A man's got a reason to hate a soiree; But there’s never a thought of deadbeating a thing When Honest John's ploughing his field in the Spring. 201TNE IQII You start right in a-drilling from the minute you arrive To leant to be the backlx ne that keeps the Army live. From position of a soldier to regimental review. You keep on boning doughboy the whole damned soiree through. Well, the Army's got to have them, and that gives a prime excuse To take the whole battalion and run them like the deuce, Across the plain as skirmishers, or an outpost to harass. Or forming an advance-guard, or closing them in mass. When the Lord of Battles mustered his hosts in kaydet gray, He never then intended it as such a grand soiree; But give a tac two companies, and drill regs leather-bound. And you'll get the damdest mess of gum that mortal ever found. There's a prayer on every kaydets lips, there’s a hope in every heart. As we take up Springfield rifles and to doughboy drill depart, That that drill day will be famous, when the longed-for stunt occurs, And a doughboy tac jabs Buford once too often with his spurs. 202You may talk of two-inch steaks. Or the biscuits mother makes. When you're off on Graduation leave or Furlough; But where you hear the drum You will do your work on slum And outwork half a dozen cits or so. Now in West Point’s sweatin' clime Where I'm a-doin' time. A-servin' of my country, so they say. All the whole year through The only thing I do Is try to eat the slum that takes my pay Oh. it's slum, slum, slum! Waiter, get a second round of slum! You put some gravy in it Or I’ll send for Jim this minute, If you don't step out and get that dish of slum! —Hall. C. P.

And she waltzed like a sack in a sea-going hack, this first one who taught me to spoon. And then I went ofi' on Furlough, my eyes looking out for a queen; They landed her up on Broadway, a vermilion-cheeked actorine. Rougey and painted and thirsty, a high-priced beauty she were, When reveille blew. I’d three hundred o’erdue, and I learned about spooning from her. —Clay. I'm here in a pair of scavenged trou, and a cap that's two years old. A-tryin' to beat the Kaydet Store, and hoardin' up my gold; My socks are worn an' holey, my lingerie torn to shreds.

Only a first class man; Don’t blame me too much, for I’m dodgin' the clutch Of the Kaydet Store if I can! I spent my measly salary, an' more than that beside.

Why in the Russo-Japanese War all they did was to cook for the infantry..... l.oud laughter and applause jrom Shekerjian and Holland. ......Why I saw in the paper the other day where they had controlled airships by wireless, and if such is the case, the cavalry is no longer of use even as messengers. Inst.- Oh. no. Mr. VanHorn. That newspaper article you mention must have been those pictures of Little Nemo. You should read something more valuable. Hardy. -Lieutenant, what do the General Staff think of the prospects for a war with Japan? Inst.— 1 never asked any of the members of the General Staff for their opinion. Mr. Hardy...

I—ah ah— I don’t remember what this is about. . . I think this is where the famous leather gun was used. However, in those olden times the Artillery was not as good as it is nowadays. Inst. That will do you seem to have grasped most of the points. Mr. Shekerjian. I will hear you. Shekerjian.- I am required to discuss this. sir. but before I begin, I wish to say that the book says the bashi-basouks were cavalry. Mow, I’ve lived in Turkey, and I know that this outfit is not what the book says it is. To go on with my subject—my whole point is that a cavalry general should not give up pursuit as long as the breath of man or horse is left. etc., etc... Inst. Next! Murray.—I am required to discuss the following battles. I don't know anything al out this- I must have studied yesterday s lesson over again. I think this battle Wagram was where the French artillery fired one volley with terrible effect, then advanced a hundred paces and fired another volley with the same effect, and then chased the Russians off the field. Of course, as I say, I don’t know whether this was the battle or not. Inst.—Well, the name of the battle isn't so important, but. etc. (and jrom here he completes the recitation). Inst. Mr. Heffeman. Hbpfy. I am required to discuss the organization and mobilization of the German army at the outbreak of the war of 1870. The Prussian forces were very well prepared for this war. and had a large army across the frontier in a very short time. The first important battle occurred at Mobilitz, a few days after the declaration of war. This battle of Mobilitz...... Inst, (thunderstruck).- What did you say the name of that fight was? Heffy (serenely). Mobilitz, sir! Inst.— Where on earth did you get that name from? Heffy. Here on my card it says. Worth. Organization. Mobilitz. I thought that must be a battle, sir. Inst. That word is “Mobility,” Mr. Heffeman. That will do- sit down! And thus it goes on jrom Ihnl to worse; and yet, when Saturday comes around, and the Immortals go to speck the tenths, you will find them all there saying somewhat after this manner: “What! only a 2.5 on Wednesday? I'm going to make a kick.” “I should have had at least a 2.7.” “Well, what do you know about that? I should have been policed up! They never give a goat a show." The next blue Monday will roll around with the goats still kicking about their last week's marks, and going to the section room to renew their guessing-contest and guessing wrong. 2083 fflrrttng of tijc f)oU)crs “First Class Hop Managers are wanted in Room 304 immediately after supper. Important.” Scene.—Finch's room five minutes afterward. The gathering of the clans is completed by the arrival of the “E” Co. delegation en masse, their arrival being heralded by sounds of Hicks, Surles. Bradford, Christian, and Fleming, all talking at once. The door is closed, and a raid is made on Lamed s makings. Much tobacco is strewn over the tables and floor. Finch.—Well, fellows, it 's just a question of the selection of a new hop card for Winter Hops. Now you all know that...... Christian.—Say. doggone it, it's jes' fierce the way they feed us now! Don t you think so? Bradford (at same instant).- Say, I’ve got the best piece of fiction that ever..... Fleming (also).—Sheep’s gone to Dartmouth and I’m...... Surles (also). Yes. one of those fore-door bodies—made in any color you want for seventy-five dollars extra. Oh, keen...! Finch stops and looks pained. Conversation on all subjects except hop cards goes on with increasing volume. Lamed's Howitzer work is pawed over and freely criticised. At last, “Call to quarters sounds weakly through the din, and Finch grows desperate. He produces two sample cards, and by dint of much pounding on the table and talking louder and faster than anyone else, succeeds in getting everyone’s attention. The bunch inspects the hop cards hurriedly. Hicks. -There! that one is simple, and yet to the point. Cullum Hall what could be more expressive?—and a good architectural drawing, too. Say, Kid, do you reckon this gold would rub off? The rest of the meeting look at the card contemptuously and then turn to the other one. Bradford. There! say, that’s a pretty femme! Fleming.—What’s Cupid got there- a funnel? Christian Why. no, that's his blunderbuss! Don’t you see? Sec all the hearts he’s shooting at the femme? Surles.- Substitute lemons for the hearts, and I’ll take the card! Nance. I move that the hearts be stricken from the scene—they're too big to go in the gun anyway. Hicks.—Say, now, hearts are hearts, you know. I think we ought to keep them—ferns, and Cupids, and hearts—and...... (face takes on a dreamy sort of expression and his voice trails off into silence). Christian (excitedly).— Sho! I think they ought to be there! They add a lot of sentiment to the scene! Surles. Sentiment, yes and a bunch of mush! Remind me of Laura Jean Libbey! 209Bradford. Is all this snow? Think there ought to be a snow-plow in the background somewhere—I’m strong on detail. Wheeler.- That’s all right! just put an arrow with "Path” marked down by her feet. Hicks.—Well, I don't think that Corp s chevrons look well on an overcoat. They ought to Ik Captain's. Fleming, Surlbs. and Bradford. No- Lieutenant’s! Finch. Quartermaster’s are the prettiest, you know! A heated argument follows, and in the midst of it Wheeler suggests that plain black first class service stripes are neatest of all. Christian.- -An’ I think there should be some poetry on the card. Now, something like...... Fleming cuts in determinedly. Now, in view of the four dollar and twenty-one cent charge on the last settlement for hops, I think we ought to.. The musician in the area gives a few preparatory taps on his drum. All (hastily). -Well, fix it up anyway you want, Neil! (Exeunt.) Same sounds as on entrance, except in reverse order. Finch stands dumbly in the ruins of his room, listening to the dying “E" Co. voices. Later he discovers that two late magazines, a book that he has just gotten to read, and all but one of his extra hop schedules have disappeared. He stands disconsolate, looking sadly at the sample card. Assembly sounds. (Curtain.) Never try to soiree a tac into not skinning you by b aching. It's easier to write a skin than it is to b-ache one. When you have run two-thirds the way around in double time, and your dress-coat is slowly squeezing you to death, console yourself by remembering that the Corps has the reputation of being the finest military l ody in the world.

I forgot to put in clean cuffs—they will have to do now. though; I can't spare the time. 1 guess it must be a hundred and ten in the shade how much more must it be in this tent? My, I can’t let that dress-hat go—that surely needs a little cleaning. Crash! There goes my foot into the locker drawer, and a broken bottle of ink runs lazily out over the tent floor. And I'm orderly. Reaching for that precious dress-hat again, I tilt the stretcher, and down comes the last two weeks' laundry into the ink. After carefully adjusting the dress-hat, I decide that a little maneuvring of the broom will remove some of the defects of the floor. 1 lean over to reach for it, when, bang! off goes the dress-hat again and rolls under the tent-floor. When I finally emerge from the catacombs with broom and dress-hat grasped victoriously at last, I also have two red rings around my neck where the ropes got in some good work, a pair of dirty white gloves, and a nice large rent in the seat of my trousers. I feel as though I were growing more spooney every minute, and my temperament is such that I feel like praying. A little talcum powder will fix the gloves the other will have to stay as it is. ‘'Haw much more timet" One minute! Shucks, I forgot my cartridge box! There! At last. I am all ready but getting my gun out of the cover. Ting-a-ling! My breastplate comes off. ricochets off the tent floor, and lands in the gravel, face down. I 3jump out to recover it, and strike the dipper handle, upsetting the water bucket on one leg of my trousers from the knee down. I recover the breastplate and proceed cautiously across the tent toward the gun. With no more accidents than knocking my wife over the locker into the company street, and cocking my dress-hat over one ear and pompon over the other, I have the gun nearly out of its case when the assembly starts. The gun-cover gets tangled around the left leg, and clings like a leech, my right toe strikes the tent-pole on the way out. and I execute a wonderful pas seul down the company street, and enter ranks, knocking down three plebes and a yearling corp. With the aid of the captain, two lieutenants, and the surrounding squads, 1 succeed in looking like a plebe on the second day in Beast Barracks, and feci very gratified. The review being over, my friend the tac lines up in front of me with the following breezy remarks: - "Report Mr. Ducrot for muddy trousers, soiled gloves, dirty cuffs, torn trousers, etc.’’ My goodness, and we haven’t even gotten to that tent yet! Tanbark is poor eating, but a few mouthfuls gain more bootiick than getting caught deadbeating. If a man who is paid to pack mules can do more things with a rope than you can, don't feel that you're inapt. A man is pretty good when he can speck a thing and remember it three weeks. If the guard-house clock jumps two minutes at once, it's undoubtedly correct. It has been on the job so long that it ought to know how to keep time. When you discover that all your hop gloves are left-handed, remember that the irons in the laundry are hot and that there are comparatively few left-handed laundry spikes. Two-thirds of all soirees originate through rumors in the Corps. If it be returned "for further remark"- remark while there's a remark left in your system otherwise you'll serve cons. When you’ve spent the week knocking a game, don't be surprised when you're licked again the next Saturday. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing nevertheless a good bluff sometimes gathers the tenths. 214String 351 rat |)omi “Ves, this is the way cadets are required to keep their rooms in order.” Blunt.—Clay is a silicate of alutnin....
