DW W i ff-at K I 1' Il Uliije Qeginnings ut est uint I-IE date on the Crest is 180:23 but in truth the Academy as we know it was not born until 1817. Wlhatever it accomplished in those lirst fifteen years was the meager result of the efforts of a few far-'seeing men against the indifference or hostility of the government. At the best they were years of stagnation, at the worst-at the very worst, for a Q N P, f, ' while there was no Military Academy. The date on the Crest-the oflicial organization of a Cadet School- is 1802. The grade of Cadet had existed in our Army for some years before. There were a few stationed at lVest- Point-then a military ,post with a small garrison-in 1799, drilling in ranlcs as standard-bearers, messing with officers, and wearing a distinctive uniform. No special qualification seems to have attach'ed to the grade. In 1801 a warrant was issued to a "young per- son named Lillie," ten years old, who actually served as a Cadet for some seven months. In his journal he speaks of classes in mathematics, held daily for four hours in a "building the size of a country school-house with seats painted green," and of lectures given to cadets in military matters. The place was destitute of any apparatus for practical instruction. As to discipline, "All order and regulation," says the journal, Uhad given place to idleness and irre- ligion. Drunkenness and Sabbath-breaking were the order of the day, and well was it for me that I left that place of ruin." On the 4th of July, 1802, shortly after the departure of the pious Lillie, this promising school was extended to include ,courses in natural philosophy, artillery practice, fortihcation and surveying, and made the headquarters of the newly-established Engineer Corps, which contained ten cadets. Forty artillery cadets were also authorized, and others for infantry and dragoons. This was to constitute a National Military Academy, at whose head was Colonel Jonathan Williams.

All arrangements as to messing, lodging, and so forth, were very crude, so much so that for some years the Academy was regularly abandoned between Decem- ber and March. Colonel Wfilliams had had command for less than a year when a disagreement with the Secretary of VVar as to the authority of an engineer officer brought about his resignation. Followed two years in which only two cadets graduated and none entered. In 1806, at the personal request of the President, Colonel VVilliams again took charge. In the succeeding three years, by hard work at home and continual hammering at Congress, he brought about relatively great improvements. In this period sixty-seven men were appointed and thirty-tive graduated. Then in 1809 all development was halted by the appointment as Secretary of War of a Dr. Eustis, who entertained a bitter hatred toward the Academy. Officially the Secretary had almost complete control over it, as he made appointments and approved grants for supplies. He used his power to full advantage. He began by detailing cadets with lield troops throughout the coun- try, generally in quite subordinate positions, where they could neither command nor learn to command. UThese young men," he wrote to Colonel VVilliams, "should put the public to no expense for transportation, quarters, or any other item .... However trivial or manual the service, it holds them to their proper place, and is all they are lit forf' A large majority of the men -then at the Point were thus dispersed throughout the Army. Wfhat remained of the school was starved by lack of money and supplies, The number of instructors was reduced to two. The purchase of books "is to be discouragedf, says the Secretary, hsince the advance- ment of science is so rapid as to render them useless, they become obsolete as soon as boughtf' Finally, during his three years, incumbency Dr. Eustis appointed just two cadets, one of whom never reported. His success was remarkable. By 1810 Wfest Point was dead, and for two years it stayed dead. Little instruction was given in that year, and no one was graduated. ln 1811 eighteen cadets, serving with troops in different parts of the United States, were given commissions without examination. ln March of 1812 one of the instruct- ors, Capt. Partridge, wrote that "all cadets have been commissioned except Smith, who is a clerk in the VVar Department." In the same year Colonel VV'illiams, utterly discouraged, resigned his position and commission. It was not a particularly healthy policy, this of Dr. Eustis, with a war with England imminentg and the disgraceful results - of that war had a stimulating effect on the na- f - tion. The idea that to hght requires trained - soldiers began to take hold. Late in 1812, just -QQ JE : -sg befori ltheCSecretary resigned, an act was passer Jy onffress concerning the Academ U " . The most impgrtant provisioi? was a 325.0370 appropriation for buildings and supplies. Wfest it .gi Q Point began to come to life. By the spring of "" - .. 1813 there were a dozen cadets, and one grad- 15 4' H uate, George Trescot. He obtained the engi- T -:ga-,,,ifg,I3,.,l5.g1. Q1, C ,L neers without difficulty. .

Partridge, in spite of considerable efficiency as a drill master, was a singular mislitg weak, irritable, and inconsistent, without theability to organize. There was no system nor discipline in the Corps. There was no uniform course of studies, nor eveh a division into classes. Men desiring to attend a recitation or lec- ture, did sog when they did not, they stayed away. The uniforms were at the wearers' discretion, and had a pleasing variety. One of the more brilliantvincluded a seven- inch dress hat with a red, white and blue pompon, "pink duck sherry-valleys with buttons down the sides," a white satin vest, and a "music sword." Punishments con- sisted in coniinements Csometimes on bread and waterj and in sitting astride a,cannon in the sun. One very mutinous cadet was "given a commission in the First Artillery, as an examplef, And when a man really got sick of the place he went off on.fur- lough. to come back when he was rested. Strange to say, this quaint arrangement did not work well. In 1814 there were thirty-one graduates: in 1816 there weren't any. Most of the Corps was on furlough, resting. Those at the Point were in all stages of military inefficiency. Some of them lived in Highland- Falls, never coming to the Academy. There were two married cadets, who had families in barracks: one who had only one armg one who was a mid- shipman as well as a cadet: and many other undesirable citizens. The Plain was cov- ered with retired soldiers' huts, which "afforded asylum for all manner of people, and supplied quantities of whiskey." Benny Havens' place was also established and flour- ishing. A Court of Inquiry appointed in 13816 reported a general spirit ofjnsubordina- tion, due to lack of organization and of adequate punishments. At that time cadets could not be court-martialed, while direct dismissal by the Superintendent, though authorized, appears to have been rare. And even sitting astride those cannon in the sun did not prevent such little practical jokes as an attempt to blow. up barracks by a bomb with a time fuse, or to bombard the Superintendenfs house with a held battery and service ammunition.

JK all 254 24 if It is difficult to give an adequate idea of all that Major Thayer did for the Academy. Considering the Corps as it is now, its organization and training, its spirit and customs and traditions, there is little which is fundamental that cannot be traced back to that great man. He found a school in which was no organization nor hope of progress, a comic opera school. He left substantially the lfVest Point that has ofhcered our Army for three-quarters of a eenturyg substantially His arrival found of the cadets, as has Half a dozen of the Two professors were ridge, who had gone the West Point of to-day. the Academy in a characteristic condition.

Captain Part- away in a temper when his dictatorship was done away with, turned up in a day or two and got into arrest him- self for disagreeing with Major Thayer. Everyone appears to have been happily released except Captain Partridge, who was court- martialed and forced to resign. VVith him out of the way, the new Superintendent could begin his Work in earnest. A A bare list of his constructive orders in the years 1817 and 1818 would ill a good sized volume. The cadets on furlough were adver- tised for in the newspapers of the country, those not returning before a certain date being considered dismissed. Those who returned, to- gether with the men at the Point, were promptly subjected to a mental and physical examination, which resulted in the dismissal of a number and the conditioning of many others. The Corps was organized into a two-company battalion, with ea et officers, super- vised by tactical officers and a Commandant of Ca ets. The division into four Academic classes was defined more accurately, and the pres- ent system of small sections and weekly posting of marks intro- duced. The Academic Board was reorganized and enlargedg new departments were added, new courses laid out, and a large quantity of text-books and technical instruments purchased. Bi-yearly exam- inations were to be held, in January and June, and entrance examina- tions in june and September. Summer vacations were superseded by a permanent encampment, with tactical exercisesg all cadets were required to pass through two of these before graduating.

The present regulation as to dis- S' charged cadets not entering the service so as to rank their class, was passed on Major Thayer's recommendation, as was the system of graduation, and selection of arms of the service, according to class rank. Concurently with these administrative advances, the internal condition of the Corps suffered a swift and severe change. Never before, and probably never since, have the bonds of discipline cut quite so deep as they did on the cadets of the twen- ties.

XVITH wooirs MONUMENT IN THE CENTER or THE P1,A1N 1 largely disregarded by Partridge, punishments being generally summary. Moreover, it had been the tradition that members of the hrst class received no demerits, and were not reported for ordinary offenses. Thayer established a maximum yearly limit in demerits, which was strictly enforced, and gave discipline a very appreciable 'weight in class standing. The list of reportable offenses and the strictness with which they were reported was greatly increased. ln every way the Corps was made to feel the presence of a strong hand. YVritten explanations for reports had to be submittedg written permits to obtain leaves and privileges, to receive packages, even to obtain letters from the mail. The Superintendent kept a personal record of every man in the Corps, and made it a point to know his appearance and habits. He had the cadet officer of the day dine with him daily, accompanying the meal with a cross-exan'1ina- tion as to affairs in barracks. He was acquainted with and exercised a supervision over the smallest details of cadet life. And under this system West Point throve. Year by year saw an increase in the thoroughness of its curriculum, and the number and efficiency of its graduates, year by year were strengthened its traditions of personal honor and professional pride. Professional pride-that was the essence of it all, the greatest part of Thayerfs great Work.

At Fishlcill and several other small towns that the coh.1mn passed, flags were hoisted and salutes fired with Revo- lutionary cannon. At Poughkeepsie the town militia turned out and drilled-"a wretchedly unmilitary exhibition, although we applauded them heartily." One of the rich landholders of the vicinity, Colonel Lewis, gave the Corps a reception on his lawn, "serving a collation consisting of ham, rounds of beef, sangaree, beer, cakes, rolls, bread and butter, milk, apples, pears, peaches, plums, etc." "At Hudson we performed a number of military evolutions before the admiring multitude, which assembled to the number of more than five thousand to watch and applaud." VVhen the cadets marched down to the wharf, where they were to embark for the Point, they were escorted by a body of the oldest inhabitants, headed by some Revolutionary veterans. A complimentary address from the Mayor was read and a national salute tired. ' Colonel Thayer retired from the superintendency in 1833. I-le was succeeded by Colonel De Russyg in 1838 by Major Delaheldg in 18-15 by Captain Brewerton.

Ourorders were to report at any time between the lst and W 15th of June, so we dropped in by twos and 'TQ' thrces at a time until the 15th. We were sent to . , 'A Co. "D" barracks, under charge of a cadet lieutenant, who ,assigned us our rooms, and ordered us to the old Commissary Store Csituated about where the Confec- tioners is- nowj. Ileie we got our thing outlhtj ,- - blanket, pillow, candle-box. and so on-arranged it in a bundle. tied it to a broom-handle, and with this over our shoulders marched back past the Officers' Quar- L ters: to the huge delight of the occupants, who watched i and commented on us with a singular lack of sympathy. lVe remained in these barracks till camp. They l were oft limits to older cadetsg but we were given , ' L authority by special orders to visit upper-classments 'Q quarters if we so desired. There is humor sometimes CADET I.IEU'I'liNAN'l' even in special ordersg I doubt if any of us ever made l857 use of the permission. Wfe spent our mornings and eve- nings at squad drill. During the day we attended recitations in the Academic Building, with cadets as instructors. They gave instruction 'in the "three R's," and had all the fun they Wanted in the way'of mild hazing. It was very mild, though. The year before, 1852, there had been one of the periodical investigations, and live or six first classmen had been dismissed or suspendedg though my recollection is that they all got back and eventually graduated. CAmong them was Schofield, who afterwards became Commander-in-Chief, and was at one time Superintendentg a fine man and a model soldier.D Consequently ,what hazing we received was conhned to making us ridiculous, and taking away all our new-born pride at being cadets. It was mere child's play compared to what I have heard of since leaving the.Academy.- We went into camp on the 15th. Two days later we were marched to the Academic Building to stand our simple entrance examinations. They consistedof arithmetic-especially vulgar and decimal fractions-and a little reading and writing, and lasted only three hours. The physical examination occurred next day. Out of a hundred and ten men, about seventy passedg the others returned to their homes. It is said CI do not know how trulyj, that one of the men who failed was re-examined' on account of being a Harvard graduate, and passed. The man of whom it is told stood at the top of my class throughout the course, and graduated one. I had one rather funny experience during plebe camp. I1 and my roommate, Lawrence Kipp, and a third classman, were detailed one dayito police camp.

Kipp and I got a wheel- barrow, shovel and broom, collected a quantity of cigar-butts, tobacco quids, and other trash, and asked the yearling what to do with it. I-Ie told use to take it to the quartermastefs tent, dump it there, and go -back to our tents, which we did, proudly conscious of duty well done. A few minutes later the ofhcer of the day U. E. B. Stuart, afterward the famous Confederate cavalry generalj, sent a corporal and patrol into camp to arrest Cadets Kimmel and Kipp for dumping trash in front of the quartermasteids tent, "in violation of good order and military discipline." We were prisoners the rest of the day, and marched to supper with the guard, where we were objects of kindly attention. I vividly recall marching at lockstep behind an upper classman who crossed his feet while he walked, trampling mine horribly. The joke of the matter was that our yearling informant-a "Sep" who had never been through plebe camp-had given us the directions through ignorance, not malice, and at the subsequent investigation he was reported, and received a number of de- merits. ' We had no football nor baseball in my day. no athletics of any kind, nor even a gymnasium. But there were plenty of drills, which gave us a sufficiency of exer- cise-a good deal more than we wanted. Wfe had guard-mounting daily, immediately after breakfast. Parade Cweather permittingl occurred every day of the year, includ- ing Saturdays. There were also extra tours of guard duty tsimilar to your punish- ment tours.of to-dayl, walked in front of Barracks for two hours, on Saturday after- noons. Real vacations, except furlough, occurred only twice a year, on',Christmas and New Year's Days. There were no duties on these dates, and leaves were some- times given at Christmas. There was always uncertainty about this, however. I have seen a letter written home by a cadet of '59, on Christmas Eve, saying that he was uncertain about coming home, as the orders granting leaves were not yet out. ,Our food-except on the above-mentioned feast-days, when we had an oyster supper and a turkey dinner-was very simple. VVe could hardly' have afforded any luxuries, for our pay when I entered, was S2-1 a month. S2 of this went ,to equip- ment fund, and about S10 tothe mess. The 'Winter before I graduated, Congress increased the pay to S30 monthly, where it remained until 186-L. At no time during my stay did any of us leave the Point Cexcept on legitimate leavej for instruction or any other purpose. Such trips as the first class now makes to Fort Hancock, Springfield or W'atervliet, or the battlefield of Gettysburg, were quite unknown. I believe .that you are much the gainers thereby. Visits, especially, to the great battlefields of the Civil Wa1', in my opinion give an invaluable oppor- tunity for practical military instruction. , I do not recall any serious friction or misunderstandings with the Tactical Depart- ment. Such a thing as expressing disapprobation of an officer by a public demonstra- tion was simply unheard of. I am told, however, that there was such an occurrence in ,64, when an officer was hissed at drill. But in the Summer camp of the year after my graduation, I believe it was, there was a mutinous disturbance of some proportions. The hrst captain, a rather autocratic and unpopular man, had several times directed the first class privates in ranks to stop swinging their arms excessively. Apparently it had no effect. So one evening, marching to supper, he gave the battalion 'Ito the rear," and reversed it by two abouts, so that the first classmen were in the rear rank. When ranks broke after supper, three first classmen snatched swords from nearby file-closers, and attacked the hrst captain. He drew his own sword, and a lively ight ensued until the Commandant rushed up and quelled the disturbance. The three privates were afterward dismissed. This is said to be,the nearest approach to actualmutiny that the Point has ever seen. 15 ' i Eau in I ,Q-.r. .'f2x'?Sit? ..:. we Q xr ' f's...f4f:r .:, , V.,, ,V ,L st:-gifg'.:Qa-is Piss -, mfs,-,ew , .J 5,1 .ga Q n ' f " 'f,.:'.-:Uv 4 , 'Q A t-3545? at 1.

S. A., Retired, Class of '66D HAD often visited the Academy as a boyg was steeped in its legends and tradi- tions, had no higher ambition than to follow in the footsteps of my father and be like him, a VVest Pointer. I studied with adoring eyes the many officers and cadets. Northern and Southern both, who were made welcome at my grandfather's home. He was then President of Columbia College in New York City, and was educating me for Columbia, and anything but a military career. Then came the thunder clap-the guns of Sumter-and We who had refused to listen to the rumblings of the coming storm, were caught in its vortex. Even as a sixteen-year-old boy I had a share at the frontg and then, armed with an appointment "at large" from the Unknown Westerner, I stood attention to a cadet officer-of-the- day with whom I had shaken hands a few months previous, and was turned over to a brace of cadet corporals for the expected initiation to West Point. Morris Schaff and his few comrades had just received their diplomas, had come in from their last parade, and were 'fchanging the gray for the blue." It was the 11th of June, and I sometimes think the romance and poetry of the ante-bellum period lasted in some measure until Schaff and l1is classmates left us. I know it vanished with them, and we who entered in their stead began a Ugrad-grind"-as sombre, as unsentimental a four years' sojourn as was ever there endured. In previous years at West Point the "Plebe Class" outnumbered the yearlings. In '62 the yearlings outnumbered the plebes, and-never mind the details, I, at least knew just what to expect and got no less than was expected+perhaps no less than I deserved, but from June the 15th to the fag end of August, our immortal seventy had the time of our lives. One way to escape the incessant Work and nagging by day, and Uyankingf' "ditching" and "deviling" by night, was to get on guard. My regular tour came about once in seven days, but some upper classman was ever ready to let a plebe take his place on what he considered a bore, and I a blessing. So it often happened that I could 'fmarch on" every other day, thanks to the pre-occupation in the Commandant's tent, and walking a cool sentry post the long hours of the night was far better than being snaked out by the heels every live minutes, and slid by scampering, sniggering, light-heeled, light-hearted yearlings all over the camp and sometimes far beyond. I mind me of one occasion, in the starlight and dew of mid- August, when a future major-general and two of his cronies whisked me clear out to Execution I-Iollow and then scurried home. It was a riotous night in camp. Every time a plebe was launched from the tent floor to the hard beaten company street the dust would Hy in clouds. I hated dust and didn't mind dew, so rolled in my grimy blanket and slept sweetly for nearly two hours, till my abductors grew anxious lest the exile shouldn't return in time for reveille, and so came in search. It was fun to see our Commandant next morning curiously studying that long trail from "A" Company I6 . ,nun I x 7x N . ! Street across two sentry posts, 6 and 1, across the dusty "Cavalry" Plain until lost in the depth of the ghostly old hollow. The belated arrivals-the so-called "Seps"-arrived as usual in August, and the whole corps was on the qui vive to watch the Commandant rise at early morn and discover that during the night two of these new comers had been put to bed in his sacred ioihce. An oddly assorted pair they were, a short Kentuckiian and a long New Yorker, land a squad of mischief-loving yearlings had skipped across sentry post in the dead hours of the night: had tiptoed into Cadet barracks, where the newly arrived were segregated, had bidden these two take up their beds and walkg marched them over to camp, and noiselessly rolled them in their blankets in the Colonells "marquee," bidding 'them stir not till they should come againg then roused everybody in camp to tell of the splendid joke they had on the Com-"what fun it would be to watch him bristle up at reveillef' and could hardly sleep a wink the rest of the night for thinking of his amaze and indignation. ' "Get those Septembers back where they belong," was all the Commandant ever said on the subject. He had just got word that his exchange was effected, and nothing else could matter. VVe began our studies September lst, with the news that many we loved were dead and gone and the Army falling back again on XVashington.

The snows fell and blanketed the plain: the Aice formed and fettered the noble river: Christmas came, and the Corps had turkey, and, served in square tin pans, a curious compound they called mince pie. There should have been added a Uday off" in which to digest it-with the list of casualties at Fredericksburg. A dozen of us took heart and tried to make calls on New Year's Day, and were met with the tidings that Bragg had beaten Rosecrans in Tennessee-that Sill and Garesche were killed. It was bitter cold that winter, yet in the low shoes of the regulations, and thin white cotton gloves, and slow time every inch of the way, we made frequent marches to the cemetery and hred straggling volleys with frozen fingers over our soldier dead. How long it took to thaw out afterwards! January examinations sliced off a few of our number, and they hardly seemed sorry to go. Then '63 was fairly ushered in, and the tide of battle soon began to turn. There had come a revival of hope since the Mississippi fran unvexedf' and the great invasion of Pennsylvania had closed forever, The Corps itself was growing in membership, Congress had authorized the President to fill, from the young volun- teers at the front, the vacancies left by the temporary absence of many fighting cadets. Then there were queer happenings.

There had come, in the uniform of a sergeant-major, one of the friends of my boyhood whom I had left two years earlier across the Potomac' at Chain Bridge. There had come one who, it was known, had held the rank of captain and assistant adjutant-general of volunteers. There were others of whom it was said that they, too, had held com- missions, though they themselves were reticent. One fine fellow had been the color sergeant of his regiment in the famous assaults on Vicksburg. Another, from Iowa, had won distinction during the siege by covering and capturing single-handed a little party of the enemy in an outwork. I could never find it possible to "devil" men like these whose careers and campaigns I envied. One chilly evening, late in the fall, the cadet officer-of-the-day, "Pirate" Vose, and the corporal of the guard, my humble self, were chatting in front of the coal fire in the guardroom when there came a knock at the door, and, as it swung open, there stood revealed a young officer in the dress of the cavalry. Instantly Vose and I sprang to attention and faced him at the salute. Even in that instant I noted the elegance of his uniform, and the grace and dignity of his bearing. He was one of the handsomest fellows I had ever seen, and I wondered who he could be.

Then, one November day, came the worst stroke that Fate ever dealt the Class of 'G6. Wfithout warning appeared an order from Secretary of Wai' Stanton, that no cadet should leave on furlough unless he could certify that he had never harrassed nor molested a fourth classman. This was the original orderg it was later modihed so that any man might receive his furlough by making a written statement of all he knew concerning hazing cases. This was worse, for i-t split the class. There were men who had done little or no hazing, and who were determined to spend their fur- lough with the armies in the field. On the other hand, there were seventeen men who had agreed to sign no statement, under any conditions. So the class arrayed itself in two factions, there were misunderstandings and recriminations, a bitter fight or two, and then the inevitable breach. But that was laterz In the meantime, we settled down to' an utterly cheerless winter. War prices had soared steadily higher and higher. WVhen we entered in '62 our shoes cost less than three dollars the pair, and our uniform coats of durable Char- lottesville cadet gray cost less than twelve dollars. In '64 the shoes were six dollars, the Charlottesville cloth couldn't be had for love or money, outside of the Confederate army. VVe,rvere paying treble rates for inferior goods. The whole Corps was in debt. Out of his dollar a day, every cent he then received, the cadet had to pay for his board, barber, bath, bedding, belts, bootblack, band, books, clothing of every kind, gas, stationery, etc., etc. In fact he got nothing free but his arms, his room, his tuition and medicine. Now, the authorities had to shut down on the issue of items for which the Corps could no longer pay, and for the hrst time in VVest Point history the cadets were bidden to seek help from home. But many had no one to aid, and as a consequence, that dreary winter and until mid-spring, by which time Congress had come to the rescue, more than one-third of our membership were excused from all militaryduty as being shoeless and in rags. Men made caps by utilizing discarded "shakoes," cutting them down and roofing the frame with oilskin. Pillow cases were made to do duty as shirts, armless, of course, but cadet collars and cuffs were then attachments of the coat, not of the under garment. Some men, indeed, Wore no shirt except the woollen undervest. The food at the mess hall, previously abundant, though never'good. had gone from bad to worse. The purveyor swore it was the best he could get with the money allowed, and though we did not believe, we submitted. But, take it by and large, conditions at the Academy that winter of the war were more lamentable than ever we heard of in its past. It was probably in- sympathy with conditions generally throughout the land. Q And still the grind of study, the routine of "call to quarters," "taps," and "reveille," went remorselessly on, and in the general depression there resulted someof the wildest pranks ever played in the shadow of barracks. Night after night the spirit of devilment found vent in unearthly clamor and uproar. A favorite scheme was to lug big bucketsful of six and twelve-pound cannon shot and lignumvitae bowling balls, and send them thundering down the iron stairs and through the resounding corridors. Another was to raid what there was of a gymnasium, and blockade the hallways with wooden horses, desks and benches from the recitation rooms-empty 19 alligwll I ll T ..1:Ja,. :..,. :ta-L ,,..1 .... Q ' ..... Fl boxes, pails-anything that would promote trouble, and noise, and unlimited blasphemy when the Corps, startled from sleep by the roar of the alarm drum, would come rush- ing from their rooms and down the dimly-lighted stairs. The perpetrators, of course, would be snoring in their blankets by the time the officer-of-the-day could get out. So through a winter and spring to the summer that should have been our furlough summer-to second class camp. It was not the happiest of camps for us-that of '64, but it was far more gay than its predecessor. The First and Third classes were full of dancing men-society men-and the Point was hlled with pretty girls. When the list of officers was announced I had had quite a raise, being assigned as first "duty sergeant" of Company "B," Adams, head of the class, being named our "Top," but he left for furlough the very next day, I therefore became acting lirst sergeant of the company, held it until july 28th, went home to a household of womenfolk and wounded kinsmen for three wonderful weeks, and the night after our return, when the list was revised, was astonished to hear the adjutant read out my name as first sergeant, and Adams as second. Adams was the first man-indeed, the only man- to say he was glad of it. VVe were pinched on our pay again all the winter of '64, for gold had soared to 290, prices had risen in proportion, our board bills were the highest when our fare was the worst, and the war seemed as endless as ever. The election had gone for our great President as against McClellan. Sheridan had won some success in the Shenan- doah, but Grant was still held in front of the goal. Heavens, how at last we cheered the news of Nashville, the first really great and decisive victory. General Cullum ordered the held battery manned, and, most unusual thing, a salute fired long after dark. Lancaster trotted the yearlings out over the glistening, snow-covered plain, and waked the echoes of the Highlands with the roar of the light twelves. It was the hrst note of hope or rejoicing that I can remember hearing from our cannon since the outbreak in '61. But it was a mere whisper as compared with the thunderous uproar that bellowed along the Hudson the soft April day that brought us the tidings of the close of the cam- paign. It seems to me now that every shootable gun of every size was manned, and at a given signal tthe hring of a lield piece away up on Fort Putnamj, all the batteries turned loose at once, and presently the gray battlements of the beautiful old Point were wreathed and shrouded in sulphur smoke. VVe of the Second Class had been detailed to the old siege guns of Battery Knox. The seniors had been sent to the huge Columbiads and Parrots at the "Sea Coast," while the third and fourth classes handled the "Napoleons" and 'fthree-inch ordnance." Fancy the uproar when all got going together. NfVe were still aglow with rejoicing when, live days thereafter, we were suddenly stricken dumb. It was another soft April morning. The tower clock had tolled offthe hour of nine, when a drum boy orderly brought to my room a paper referred "for remark and return." It took a few minutes to write thejnecessary reply, and just about 9.20 I had started with it over to the CO11111119.I'1ClE11lt,S office across the area of barracks. meeting big john Rodman of the 'third class, going in his white gloves, as etiquette then required, to "see the Supef' Something, I've forgotten what, detained me a moment or two at the guardhouse. The area of barracks at the moment was empty, and all of a sudden Rodman came running back-running in from round the east end of barracks-his line face as White as his gloves. "My God!" he panted, "the President is murdered-and so is Secretary Seward-and so is,-" but then his voice broke, and for a few seconds I don't know just what happened. Out from the west door of the Academic building, section affter section came presently pouring, elattering speechless down the wooden stairway and surging over toward the guardhouse. No bugle had sounded. The Superintendent had sent orders to dismiss at once, and, bewildered and troubled, members of all four classes came crowding about us. An officer, hurrying up from the mess hall, his face a picture of dismay, thrust a copy of the New Y-ork Q0 'sc--s - ..,ti.a5 f2- Q afstze. ' . . Sei " ' Ili ssllil 1 n ag: . . .-... ....

Never before or since have I known that official to be u-t-terly ignored by the Corps of cadets. By this time from every one of the eight divisionsothers came rushing to join the throng, and by this time, too, I had mounted the old stone pedestal of the 1-Ong-mis-sing sun dial, and was reading aloud from the hrst of -the awful, black- bordered columns. "Go at once to your quar-ters! You can do no good, heref' again said the offvcer-in-cliarge, yet himself, in another second, stood listening, for he had apparently forgotten his own words in those of that fearful story, and not one man obeyed him. A few days later we formed line parallel with the railway over at Garrisons, and with our drums and colors draped in black, stood at the "present," as the day was dying and a long funeral train rolled slowly by. On the platforms, and at the car windows, were generals famous in song and story, but we had eyes for only that solemn pile on which was laid all that was mortal of him who had become immortal, whose words and whose wisdom gain in reunited peop worth and power with every added year., the inspiration of a le so long as the flag shall float and the nation live. 1221. ki ' ' Q T11-f-f2Ag'.2?rifzf2.:sz, i ' .1 i -.5Z55??Zf.1afL, 2 J- ,421--f1A':'2?

The glamour of the Civil War still pervaded all departmentsg for in none, administrative, academic or tactical, were there lacking men whose high rank or titles by brevet commission had been won in that four years' struggle. Much of old VVest Point's predominance as a technical school was still in evidence in 1878. Davies, Professor of Mathematics to 1837, had been followed by Church, who held the chair of this department until his death just before our entrance tb the Academy. Bartlett, equally famous for his text books in Mechanics, had given way to Michie, but the latter had largely clung to the Bartlett text, Professor VVeir, for 42 years at the head of the Department of Drawing, had been displaced but two years before our arrival by Professor Larned. Agnel, in French since 1848, had given way to General Andrews in 18715 but Delanon continued in Spanish until after our graduation. The la-tter we remember with gratitude for not skinning us for a practical joke by his Spanish section. Immediately following the report "All present, Sir" by the Section Marcher, one youth asked, "Professor, wh'at is :section dismissed' in Span- ish?" and the instant Dejanon answered, the section arose as one man, moved out, 'was marched back to the area and broke ranks. Professor Tillman had recently taken hold as head of the Chemistry Department, and early experienced a serious fall from the dignity of his new position. He con- tinued the personal instruction of the first section. W'e were starting recitations in frictional electricity. A battery of twelve Leyden jars stood conveniently near to the plate machine. 'VVe always expected F- of our section to put his hands on everything that came along. Wliile he was "up on questions" the cadet required to discuss the plate machine loaded up the jars. As P- was relieved he did as had been expected- and for a moment fondled the bright brass terminal-only for a moment!-for the ground came on a circuit entirely unexpected by the section. The Professor was standing twenty feet away at the other end of the table and was leaning barehanded upon the lead-covered table top, while also standing upon the leaden floor apron. The Professor was always an optimist, and never charged us with malicious mischief. Lieber was Professor in Law and of course was proud of that monument to his father's ability, to wit: G. O. 100. It was issued to us in pamphlet -form and someway my copy went astray. For this reason I did not look once at this pamphlet before going up for nnal examination, which was then conducted orally, in the Library before the Board of Visitors. Of course, it was my luck to draw G. O. 100 for my recitation! What I did to neutrals and non-combatants, was too horrible for the lawyers on the Board of Visitors to listen to. I-Iow well I remember the moment of my arrival at the corner of the Academic Building on my way to the hotel! Adjutant's call had sounded.

VVhat an exemplihcation of the possibilities of Upton's tactics, as each Cadet Captain moved his company to the line with' every possible dis- play of the eccentricities of close order movements by fours and by platoonsl Reporting next day to General VVl1erry was a most pleasant experience, a moment's glance at my certihcate of appointment, a pleasant smile and a wave of farewell as he turned me over to Mr. Ward. Then came the turn to the old hospital, followed by a reception at Barracks, such as every plebe before us had probably experienced and every one following us-at least in part, All entrance examinations were then carried on at West Pointf Gut of the turmoil of squad drill before 8 A. M., in our only "cits" clothes, we went to the Academic Building or the Library for our Exams. Due to the fact that his troop was stationed at St. Louis, an instructor sent for me and gave me a bit of advice that I feel secured my success in the entrance examination. It was to the effect that one ought not to hurryg nor get flusteredg nor stop with questions one could not answerg but go on to those one could answer and then return, and above all, that every candidate was better off sitting in the examination room looking out of the window and listening to the birds sing than he could possibly be if he, returned to barracks. .And I marvelled ,at the tales that those birds told me. Fully half of each examination paper was written after my re- freshing conferences with them. Of our plebe camp I kept no record. what pirbr ever riirn Even at this late day one has a most confused feeling of admira- tion and resentment as one thinks of those little runts of yearling Corporalsg not half our size, but setting us afire as would a burning stick of dynamite, from which we cannot flee, and which We fear to extinguish because of the increased danger of violent explosion. But one impression remains ,ever vivid-that of the first classman turned out over plebes-efficient, severe, stern-visagedg just the sort of man you would expect to go to the front after having been inspected and condemned by a retiring board, and to fight himself back upon the active list. For this is what he did at Santiago. - We heard much of the trip to the Centennial at Philadelphiag especially when '80 came back from furlough. They never tired of telling us that they came to West Point a month ahead of time, and accompanied the Corps to and, from Philadelphiag a trip such as had never been made before in the history of the Corps. Q3 ' DRAWN BY BRIG.-GEN. 1. P. FARLEY CLASS OF 1861 in 'gnu e Q ,.-.. ,..T., at Our third class camp was marred by much friction with the tactical department, which grew to such an extent that all privileges were withdrawn and the entire Corps conhned to camp limitsg there were no hops, and no visiting under any cir- cumstances for any cadet who did not exculpate himself from certain alleged offenses. The strain was relieved by marching us over to the Chapel, where General Schoheld delivered to the Corps the address made historic by the bronze tablet on the west side of the Sallyport of the old barracks. This was followed by a review before the Secretary of War, in which the Corps conducted itself so well that there was pub- lished the same evening at parade an expression of the Secretary that we had taken our punishment manfully, and laid the lesson well to heart, and we were restored to favor, hops and all usual privileges. Our Hrst class camp was clouded by the assassination of President Garfield. Happening just before our Fourth of July hop, his long, lingering struggle between life and death lasted the entire summer. There was an atmosphere of oppression at the thought that such a dastardly attack should be possible in our enlightened coun- try, there was a deep spirit of sympathy for the victim. On Garhelds' death all social affairs were suspended for 30 days, and the Corps wore mourning bands for six months. The Chapel too was draped in mourning, thus explaining the presence of this emblem in all Corps, class and individual photographs of that year. Among the various items in my scrap book I find columns of matter Cnews and editorialj, on the conditions referred to in our Third Class Camp. The New York Times of July 25, '79, tersely sums up "Had the occurrence for which these men were tried Cby court martial and dismissedj, been at a civilian school, no attention would have been paid to itg there was nothing extraordinary nor unusually bad-only when tried by the stazzdard of West Ponzi." In January, 1880, several columns appear from day to day on "A VVest Point Frolic-How the Cadets Celebrated New Year's Eve-The Boys in Trouble-Rockets, Blue Lights and Artillery for a Midnight Surprise." In a pamphlet entitled "A Happy New Year," '80 claimed to have achieved "the most brilliant success on record." Perhaps they didg but '82 stayed back from furlough until July 1. l refrain from going into details, as we should not thus involve canal engineers and possible future presidents, superintendents, commandants. tactical officers, and instructors of a suc- ceeding generation. Eight instructors were detailed as extra tactical officers. Each lived in a room of one of the several divisions. Each made three inspections daily in addition to those we regularly enjoyed. The loving attention of these officers was not the least part of the brilliant success above referred to. For details see G. O. No. 1, January 2, 1880, Headquarters Department of VVest Point. Many extracts appear at about the same date of the "VVhittaker case," and many were the unkind remarks of the papers on the maltreatment of that negro at Wfest Pointg until it developed before a Court of Inquiry that the injuries were self-inflicted, in order to create sympathy and to avoid the semi-annual exams which he feared would find him deficient. One of the incidents of our cadet life was the visit of the French delegation to the Yorktown Centennial celebration during our first class year. The delegation was 94, 'i -E Tina' i i Exim: ' r llillgs assllilll fm I, V, , 'f-. wwf . ,. ,-- .-fr -. . .-,,- 1 f i T 2 r ' .1 fig' 59 Y he V -Li ' ff-' if 2 : at 1 s. ,, M. 5 191.

Called upon for a speech at the close of the performance Irving concluded, "I know that the joy bells are ringing in Old England to-night, for this is the hrst time that the Britisher ever captured Wfest Pointf' To the old graduate the changes that have been made in the physical aspect of VVest Point by its reconstruction are at iirst view disappointing. The long perspective to the hill sides across the I-Iudson has been cut off by the buildings on the East side of the Plain, and the Plain looks' diminutive. The North Barracks obtrudes itself upon the Plain, while the modest quarters it displaced seemed part of the foothill. The elevation of Fort Putnam is blotted out by the lowering height of the new chapel. The distances to the South drill grounds seem too greatg and ofhcersl and company quarters at the North and South ends of the post too difficult of access. ' In the Tactical Department, however, many improvements have been made since our day, along with such advances as have been made in the Army. Our rifle practice work consisted of one turn each with about ten rounds of ammunition fired at a distance of one hundred yards along the VVest Shore dump, which was then being pushed across Wasliington Valley along the present line of track .leading from the North end of the tunnel. The present rifle range then became an enclosed salt marsh and lake, open to the tidal effect in the river. VVe had no practice marches, nor tactical problems, except as worked out in skirmish drill on the plaing and an annual attack on Ft. Putnam. Such a thing as a pack mule did not exist on' the post. In fact most of our practical instruction was left to be acquired by experience in the service. Q5 E ::- 9 . 15 '5 ' w ifi' Ililt ttllslll A,.., . ' .I ' Q -"A , I - W ' -' s H QW . .

A., Class of '86D URING the period covered by this sketch, the conditions at the Military Academy were not materially different from those during the years im- mediately following the Civil VVar. The changes that came subsequently to make the New VVest Point had not yet been entered upon. The Superintendents, the Commandants, many of the Professors and some of the Instructors had been trained at the Academy prior to the end of the Civil Wai' and had seen field service in that tremendous conflict or in service against Indians on the frontier. The course of instruction was, in the main, what it is now, though, of course, new text-books have replaced old ones, and the higher qualifications for entrance make it possible to pursue some subjects further. The entrance examinations at that time embraced only the grammar school subjects of reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic, grammar, composition, geography and history of the United States. The entrance examinations of all candidates were held at West Point, early in Iune and late in August. Those who passed the August examination were admitted as "conditional cadets" on September first and were thereafter known as 'fSeps.', Uniforms were not provided the new cadets until nearly a month after entrance, so that most of the "plebe drill" was done in the clothes in which the candidates reported. The blouse had not, at that time, been added to the uniform, and the dress coat was worn to drill, recitations, in the mess hall and generally. The 'fshell jacket" was a short coat buttoned down the front with flat brass buttons. It could be worn in quarters and under the overcoatg and when overcoats were worn at meal formations, its use in the mess hall was permitted! The white collar worn with both of these coats and the riding jacket was a "turn down," the outer half falling outside the coat collar. Until a new model was introduced, it had, prior to being pinned on the coat, to be folded and crimped on the inside fold to make it follow the curve of the coat collar and not break in unsightly points. The dress hat was much like that worn nowg there was no campaign hat nor leggings, and the head-piece usually worn was a blue "forage cap" lying low on the top of the head and having a low top and a straight visor. Its ornament was an embroidered eagle with U. S. M. A. above it. For riding, a jacket very similar to the shell jacket and having two cloth tabs sewed on the back to support the saber belt, and long trousers with leather straps passing under the feet, were worn. A white, tight-fitting jacket and white helmet were worn frequently with the white 'trousers in camp before retreat. Troop parade, which oc- curred daily in camp at 8.00 A, M., was frequently in white, and the battalion usually marched to dinner in that uniform. The battalion consisted of only four companies and the camp was laid out with the company streets running East and West. The flank streets, which were shaded 96 ,il I ,n g I nUDU lf' 'Q f 4 , ltr pg 9. 5-ti V , 3 f -.. - ...,,.

A ' b ' The classes, prior to that of '86, were very small, their strength at graduation being ffenerall less than fift which was somewhat less than half their strength at by C y' yi! CJ entering. Of the buildings of that period only the Library, the Barracks, the Hospital, the Guard House, the Mess Hall and the Cadet Store, then known as the Commissary, remain in use. The old hospital was used as such 'during the early part of the period. It is the building that abuts on the walk one hundred yards or so south of the present hospital. The Ninth and Tenth Divisions were in course of construction for several years and were completed and utilized for the hrst time during this period. The Academic Building stood where the present one does, though it was not quite so large. On the North end were large rooms running the entire width of the building on the hrst and second Hoors. The one on the hrst floor was the "Fencing Academy," presided over by "Tony" Lorentz, then, though somewhat advanced in years, still agile and expert with rapier and broadsword. The room above was lcnown' as "Number One Academic Buildingf, and was used for examinations, and in it were held the small informal cadet hops, both during camp and during the winter. Opening off of the Fencing Academy and occupying the remainder of the north half of the first floor was the gymnasium, with its meager equipment of apparatus. The Mess Hall was in the building in use at present, but the entire building was not utilized for messing cadets. The northern end was occupied as Officers' Quarters, and the southern end was the home of the Officers' Mess. All of the large hops were held in the Mess Hall, on such occasions, the connecting doors to the Officers' Mess were thrown open and the Officers' Hop Room, known as Schofteld Hall, was utilized in addition. The latter part of these "hop nights" was invariably devoted to dancing the "German," and it was generally necessary, to accommodate the dancers, to place a double row of chairs entirely around the room. A platform made of tables supported the musicianslat one end of the room, and a similar one held seats ,for the chaperones 27 ' a gglxlll' Li ' P . .

I- ' at the other. Those not taking part in the German danced in Schofield Hall, where a second orchestra provided music. Usually a printed sheet containing a diagram showing the seating arrangement, the names of dancers and a description of the "figures" was distributed before the German. The Mess Hall was also used for all large gatherings of cadets. There, occa- sional lectures were given. During one that is remembered, the lecturer-exhibited a phonograph-then a novelty-the vibrating pin making its record on sheets of tin foil wound around a cylinder. The late Samuel L. Clemens CMark Twainj lectured there almost annually, and on the Sunday afternoon following was sure to be smuggled into one of the tower rooms in barracks, where he seemed to enjoy giving further entertainment to a select party of First Class rnen. There also was held the Hun- dredth Night Entertainment, usually preceded by a German in the afternoon. Com- pared with the extravaganza at present presented on such occasions, the program seems very simple, and yet it was generally received with the greatest apparent appreciation. The "Howitzer" was read, and its local "grinds" and references seemed to be gems of wit and humor. lt was generally given later publication in pamphlet form and disposed of by subscription. The Mess Hall was annually the scene of another incident that has now dropped into desuetude. On Commencement Day, the graduates, after the close of -the exer- cises held under the oaks in front of the Library, hastily completed their packing. donned their "cits" and joined the battalion at dinner for their hnal meal. VVhen, as they finished, they departed singly or in groups of two or three, they paused at the door, -called out "Battalion ATTENTION-Good-bye, Boys!" and then vanished. More thanione voice broke in the effort, and the response of hand clapping, by its quality, measured the popularity of the departing graduate. At hrst, the cadets were seated at long tables, seating twenty cadets, with a carver at each end. Later, among the many improvements introduced by "General'l Spurgin, was the change to smaller tables. Before his incumbency, on two days in each week there was no butter served, and the quantity and quality of the food left much to be desired. Cadet Limits were much more contracted than at present, as the reservation has been enlarged by the inclusion of land that then was owned privately. The old South Gate marking the southern limit was situated about where the pathway from the road to Highland Falls begins to climb the hill to give access to the Officers, Quarters located there. The occasions when the Corps or its mem- bers were allowed to leave the post were very few. Furloughs and short Christmas leaves, taken at the holiday season or deferred until the following summer, were the only indulgences to individuals: and during the years covered by this article, the Corps left the post only once, and then was taken across the river to Garrison, and lined up along the railroad track to present arms as the train bearing the body of General Grant was whirled by. ' . There were no inter-collegiate athletics of any kind. On Memorial Day-a half- holiday-there was usually held a baseball game between two of the classes, football, basketball and field days were unknown and the only fencing contests were between memlbers of the Fourth Class in the annual exhibition of gymnastics before the Board of Visitors. The examinations were generally oral and held before the Academic Board, di- vided into two sections, one sitting in the Library and one in Number Gne Academic Building. They commenced on january second and June hrst, and no cadet was excused from them on account of excellent term work. The only days, except when examina- tions were in progress, when recitations were not held, were Thanksgiving Day, Christ- Q8 11153 all N Q R gang l A , r Vg: li ,IZ in- if N-.s , N.

Those holidays ended at evening call to quarters, when prepara- tion began for the recitations of the following day. The demerit system was different from the more just one lnow in force. A system of credits was in force, by which a cadet receiving less than eight demerits in any month was allowed, as a credit, to remove any demerits previously acquired, the difference between the number received and eight. And those cadets only, who,on De- cember lifteenth had no demerits were allowed Christmas leaves of three or four days. Those entitled to Christmas leaves who feared the approaching examinations too much to take advantage of them, were permitted leaves of absence during the following encampment. l ' Furlough for the third class began at reveille on the second day after Commence- ment, and terminated at 3.00 P. M, on August 28th. It was the custom for several years, for the furlough class to arrive together on the Day Boat-the West Shore Railroad was then in course of construction-and march in a body up the road to the library, where line was formed facing camp. The cadets in camp formed a similar line facing- south: at a given signal both lines moved out at a run, meeting in the middle of the "cavalry plain," which surrounded camp on three sides and ex- tended from the hotel to the library. Hats and grips were thrown into the air, em- braces and greetings were exchanged and the Wanderers for the summer were escorted back to camp by the stay-at-homes. Before the end of the period referred to herein, this had, however, become a tradition, for, with the increasing ,size of' the classes, the scene was deemed too boisterous for the custom to be continued, and it was stopped by the authorities. ' . I . The writer has endeavored to describe for the cadets of the present day some of the things connected with the Academy of the preceding generation, that through development and change are not to be found in the Academy of to-day. Butiin one thing it is unchanged, and that is in the devoted endeavoron the part of those in authority to 'produce young men of high character, fearless courage, line physique, cultured as gentlemen and in every way fit to begin their service as officers of our Army.

I U53 W 1 ' ACADEMIC WORK.-This decade opened after a period of twenty-five years in which little had happened to disturb conditions in the army. Its organization and apparent needs had undergone little change. Changes in the permanent professors at the Military Academy had been remarkable by their absence, for in 1891 all but one of them were colonels in rank by reason of ten or more years' service as heads of departments. Under these circumstances, it was to be expected that academic work would settle into a serene routine, which could be disturbed only by some serious outside influence. The war with Spain operated to cause the classes of 1898 and 1899 to be graduated ahead of time, and made the first serious break in academic routine in many years. The full influence of the expansion of the army due to the war was not felt at the Academy, however, until after the close of the decade. Death or retirement served to cause changes in the heads of the Departments of Modern Languages C1892D, of Engineering Q1896D, and of Mathematics C1898D. Until 1896, Professor Postlethwaite was Chaplain of the Military Academy and Professor of History, Geography, and Ethics. At his death in 1896, his academic department was discontinued as such. The instruction in History was transferred to the Depart- ment of Law, and a civilian chaplain was appointed who had no academic duties to perform, BUILDINGS.-In 1890, the buildings used by cadets had remained practically without change for forty years. Cn the site of the present West Academic Building stood the Old Academic Building, one large room of which was the only Gymnasium that the Academy possessed. A new Gymnasium Know 'abandonedj was completed in 1892. iIn 1891, the Old Academic Building vxaas torn down, and the new one erected on its site was completed and opened for use in January, 1894. This period was one of make-shift. All sorts of out-of-the-way places were used for recitations. The Tenth Division and the Angle of the Old Barracks were used for section rooms, as were also certain rooms in the Library and in the then Admin- istration Building. Third Class Drawing was housed in Schoheld Hall, then the Officers' Hop Room, but now a part of the Kitchen of the Cadet Mess. Written recitatoins in Mathematics were held in the fourth floor loft of the Cadet Store. These arrangements were possible only because nine divisions of the Old Barracks were sufficient for the Corps at its then strength of about 275. Everybody was glad when the West Academic Building was completed. Academic routine differed somewhat from the present. Recitations continued to December 31 and May 31, and were followed by the semi-annual examinations which were taken by all cadets, regardless of class standing. Some of the examinations were oral, followed by a written examination if the oral test proved unsatisfactory. Some were written, and the result was nnal. These examinations were a 'menace even to men far up in the classes, and nobody had much fun at these periods of the year. 30 sn start: is Q' NS- A 1 Engl!

UNIFORM.-Cn Iune 15, 1899, the blouse Cnow called the dress coatj, was hrst issued, an addition to the uniform which contributed much to the comfort of the Corps, In 1893, the present riding breeches were adopted, worn at that time with brown canvas leggings. They replaced riding trousers. In 1891 the gray maclcintosh Craincoatb was hrst issued. In 1896, the old Spring- field cadet ,rifle gave way to the United States Caliber 30 Magazine Rifle' CKrag Iorgensenj. In 1899, the hrst effect of the war with Spain was felt in the issue of shelter half, haversaclc, and the remaining articles of field equipment. A held uniform was completed by adding the campaign hat. ' 1 The present full dress hat was adopted in 1899, and the service stripes were added to the dress and full dress coats. I-IAZING.-The decade 1890-1900 was peculiarly fruitful in fthe development of hazing. From a comparatively harmless incident of Cadet life, it developed into such a Hourishing institution as to invite investigation from the outside. It hrst received the attention of a military board of high-ranking officers, followed almost immediately by an investigation by a Congressional Committee. lafhat was produced in evidence in these two investigations did not present hazing in a very pleasing light, and was ample warrant forthe drastic legislation that was enacted as a result. ' , As matters stood about 1890, it was required by the authorities that fourth class- men in camp should depress the toes'while marching Ccadet slang "dig in the toes"D, 'fbrace," and carry the palms of the hands to the front C"hn out"j 'in ranks. The latter requirement applied only inside the limits of camp. In enthusiastic support of the object aimed at by the authorities, these same requirements were made by the upper classmen to apply to all fourth classmen in all movements' outside their own tents. As a consequence, double time became a very popular method of locomotion among members of the fourth class. ' "Special duty" was a well-organized institution, though not sanctioned by the authorities, as in fact were none of the hazing practices. It was a give and take arrangementpmostly give on the part of the fourth classmang but in return for certain personal services-with a hair-line division between menial services and non-menial,- the upper classman supposedly looked out to some extent for the interests of his special dutyman. This was more 'particularly true of the nrst classmen than of the third, and incidentally the hrst classmen were in a much better position to protect the fourth classmen against undue interference than we1'e the third classmen. At this stage of the development of hazing, a fourth classman who did not bring himself into undue prominence escaped with comparatively little molestation, and it is certain that cadet opinion would not have tolerated practices that developed in later years. - Even at this time, however, there was' back of hazing the unwritten law that any fourth classman who did not submit gracefully to whatever was required in the way of hazing would be "called out," and the penalties were such that he had to respond. These flghts, ostensibly fair, were otherwise as a rule. The offending fourth classman must himself answer the call. His opponent was selected from the offended class. The selection was confined to close limits as to weight, but only-where a fourth class- man presumed upon his own pugilistic accomplishments was there much doubt as to 31 ! tx gum: ,Q ee 5 All W U El the result. The upper classmen were always ready for further proceedings if the first encounter produced unsatisfactory results. Under such a system, there was nothing for a fourth classman to do but to submit to whatever was required in the way of llilli ssllslll :.."'i'fTF:"' . ,, .. fa: 41 .

WVith this unwritten law behind it, it was only a question of what limits might be tolerated by the general consent or the indifference of the upper classmen. The chief responsibility for controlling the hazing and keeping it within reasonable limits rested necessarily on the first classf About 1890 or shortly thereafter, there came a change in hazing due ,to the desire of certain upper classmen to establish reputations as "cruel and unusual" hazers, Their operations were kept within reasonable limits by public opinion in the Corps, and their reputations were founded more on noise and bluster, coupled with ceaseless activity, than anything else. Witln successive classes this idea grew, more objectionable forms of hazing came to be tolerated, and reputations as hazers rapidly came to rest upon a more substantial basis. It is noticeable that among those chiefly responsible for the development of hazing along such objectionable lines were a number who were later found dehcient in their studies and discharged. Hazing grew to such proportions that nothing would clarify the situation but to abolish it completely, in- cluding the less objectionable original forms. lt deserved the fate it met. Never better than a mild nuisance, it grew to be a serious menace to the welfare of the Academy. The only wonder is that the sentiment of the Corps permitted it to go as far as it did. ATHLETICS.-Wlith athletics such a prominent feature of cadet life as it is to-day, it is diflicult to go back in the imagination to the conditions as they existed in 1890, which marks the beginning of athletic intercourse with outside institutions. Three games of baseball in the summer of 1890, with the f'Merriamsl' of Philadelphia, the "Sylvans" of New York, and the 'fAtlantics' of Governors lsland, marked the beginning. Late in October, 1890, a challenge came from the Naval Academy to play a game of football. This challenge was accepted and a game arranged, which was played on November 28, 1890, on the old football held in the southeast corner of the parade ground. This was the hrst game of football with an outside team, and re- sulted in a defeat by a score of 24 to 0. The game was witnessed by a vast con- course, consisting of the cadets and officers of the post, and possibly as many as a hundred outside visitors. But the game in 1899 was played on Franklin Field, with all the change in conditions that that implies. The decade 1890-1900 therefore wit- nessed practically the whole change due to athletics. Both the baseball and football schedules rapidly developed to their present proportions. The hrst lnter-Class Field Day was held in 1893, and the lirst lndoor Meet in 1896. XfX7llIl'1 the introduction of athletics was born the necessity of organized yells. The class of 1889 comes near to the distinction of being the lirst class to have a yell. Their yell was, however, not formally adopted, and was used on but few occasions. In the spring of 1891 came the first real occasion for class yells, and the class of 1891 was the earliest class to formally adopt one. ln the fall of 1891, the "Old Corps Yell" Xvas adopted. lt has since been added to, and- now constitutes the first part of the Long Corps Yellf' The change from the days of lhfednesday drills, no corps yell, no class yells, no athletic games with outside teams, no Field Day, no Indoor Meet, nothing seemingly 32 sn aagrtii Ili ilililll 1 Ei nun f' it 19 .Q Bin an Q dl M Sl - 1 lit E .- V ' Q - rl. . , 1 . - ll wi ' ii' 'rl 5 .

ROUTINE.-The change of the daily routine of cadet life was mainly that due to the infiuence of athletics, One change not so accounted for was the change in Sunday routine. ln the decade 1890-1900 the morning inspection and chapelzwere the same as ,now. The afternoon, however, was punctuated with a.call to quarters with sentinels posted from 3 to 4 P. M. This at least had one advantage over the present arrangement,-it formed a reasonable excuse for not walking all afternoon with the same girl. It may account to some extent for the lesser matrimonial mor- tality of that time. ' THE HOWITZER.-The Howitzer was born in 1875, being, at that time a paper read at the 100th Night meeting of the Dialectic Society. At some uncertain time it emerged as a printed pamphlet in connection with the 100th Night4Entertainment. The earliest copy in the possession of the Library is dated 1884. That .issue and the succeeding years to include 1895, it was merely a paper-bound pamphlet of less than forty pages, illustrated for the first time in 1894. The hrst issue approximating to the present form of the Howitzer was brought out by my own class in 1896. It was a cloth-bound volume, comparable in size and style with the more recent issues. The ten years show many outward changes, and many another like period may also, but in spirit and at heart the Corps of Cadets remains the same., Every year there emerges from the four quarters of the country a grist 'to be ground at -the Mill on the Hudson. Sorted and screened.. ground and bolted, the product comes forth. Bagged in expensive bags made by Hatheld and others, with red, white, and yellow labels, it goes on the market.

' ow GYMNASIUM ' war had not yet died awayg war of HE reviewer of such a recent epoch in the life of the Corps writes under a difficulty which is not experienced by one who writes of a period more re-- mote. With the former, the clay is still wet from the makers' hands, and there are many of those who helped to mould it. To the writer of an earlier day come memories and reminiscences of the cadet life of many a man who has made his mark, who has written his name on the pages of the nation's history, while for the chronicler of the decade just past there exist only memories of men whose destiny is with the future. But if he may not write of them as individuals, their acts remain, and the history of the Corps is traced by those acts. The beginning of the new century found the Academy very much in the public eye for two reasons, one na- tional and one local. The military spirit which came with the Spanish a kind was still going on in the Philip- of security which only fifteen years of peace was to provide for an increase in the size of the Corps. Early in the decade the annual number of graduates reached the hundred mark, in the vicinity of which it has ever since remained. The second reason for publicity, which I have designated as local, was caused not so much by the military spirit as by a false conception of it. lt became evident that the Spartan simplicity of West Point was being maintained by ultra-Spartan rigor of treatment of plebes by upper class cadets. Investigation followed. Hazing, as prac- ticed at West Point, has since then been the topic of too much discussion to call for more than the merest mention here. The great weight of the subject is attested by the live ponderous volumes of the report of the Congressional Committee. The con- ditions which followed that investigation, but which can hardly be said to be entirely due to it, were emphatically better than the oldg but certain it is that the physical discomfort of the plebes, at its worst, never approached the mental agony of the entire Corps during the sitting of that dread tribunal. ' As a corollary to the cessation of hazing should be mentioned the discontinuance of class organizations. 1904 was the last class to elect a president while still at the Academy, and their organization remained in force only during their fourth class year. What good the classes as organized bodies may have done in other years had become largely a dead letter as far as the discipline and sober management of the Corps was concerned. Fighting-that worst of the evils Connected with hazing-was largely a matter of class control. Probably that was not direct-ly the fault of the class organ- ization. The opinion of the Corps in the matter of fighting and hazing was a thing of slow growth. No one class ever presented that opinion ready made. The reversal of opinion in those matters, however, was much more sudden. Perhaps the investigation was the cause, although many of us do not think 344 lamp burning. fStrange, the false ideas will evokelj Its effect on the Academy imager ' 3 ' 'K .

At any rate, the Corps saw a light. VVith new opinions, it is possible that the class organizations might have been a factor in the life of the Corps, as valuable as they had ever been. But they had proven barren of good results, and like the unfruit- ful fig tree. were cut down and cast into the fire of public disapproval. Were the class organizations wrong? As to their principle, we cannot sayg 'but wrong in prac- tice they must have been, or they would not have come under the censure of men whose judgment we do not question. Among the things significant of this period might be mentioned the First, Class Club. A large room in the Academic building was fitted with the.usual club room equipment-billiard and pool tables, reading and writing desks, books, magazines, pictures-in short, everything necessary for a comfortable club room. The Club was open from reveille until tattoo, and the privilege of using it was extended-to the members of the first class, with certain restrictions as to conduct grades. It proved to be popular from the start. It was the only place outside the section room where members of the class could meet, exclusive of other class men. An increased fraternal spirit was noticeable throughout the class as a result of it. Men who, because they had lived in different companies, knew little of each other. became really acquainted for the first time. The institution was short-lived, however. The 'class of 1907 enjoyed it from its'founding until graduationg 1908 from then on until their gradua- tion in the following February: 1909 from February until some time in their first class camp, when as punishment for a series of camp escapades, the club was closed. The Class of 1910 enjoyed its privileges, but with the utilization of the space taken up by it for necessary section rooms the Clubwwas discontinued. - Of a purely academic nature was the beginning of those trips of the first class which are so enjoyable to-day. The Department of Engineering was the hrst to dis- cover that there were some mountains which could not be brought to the young liiahomets. Tickets were straightway'purchased to the mountain-Gettysburg battle- field in the hrst instance-and we have been going ever since. . One last thing that marks the period from 1900 to 1910 is the celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the Academy's birth. In our country, where age is only relative, the hundred-year mark is the seal of stability set on our institutions. Like our British forbears we reverence custom long standing. The English who told the secret of producing an English lawn-"Seed - X it, 'water it, and roll it four or 'five hundred years"-igave us as well the recipe for mak- ing customs. Things done .day after day for a hundred years acquire a certain dignity that entitles them to respect and renders them difficult of change. So it was with the celebration of our centennial: the Academy seemed to add a new honor to those she already possessed-that of Age. 'It would be incorrect to leave an impression that that anniversary marked in any way the end- ing of an old regime and the beginning of a new. Nothing could be further from the truth. The 'routine was not changed, nor was any sudden development noted-only that steady Progression which has marked the Academy from the beginning. But the "long line"' did Hstiffen and straighten" as a result of celebrating that anniversary. To the men of the Corps, those about to be- come a part of it, and to the youth growing up in the land, there became known the love and respect held for the Academy, not by ' 35 PRESENT ACADEMIC BUILDING rsaaiiasst -. w as-' 'l' ..,,,.wsa-, 1 r sg, -. .f at . 1- --11 c- st M325 '-ftifesaeaff t-ferf f if.fnpp as i, ,Q- - ,..,-f -' "' fss 5?wsa3tQ" tiers? asia' r saggy ' l :gff 4 apfmnsss sera ' , we ff: e s- r f r- Q 1-1 4 ,, be 1 -it - -v-- , A A - -. - f V, V.

And yet after all, what l have noted are but the outward and visible signs of the life of the Corps in the last ten years. They are but mile posts which are as easily read by the outsider who knows the Corps through the newspapers, as by us who were a part of it. The real progress of the Corps is marked by a thousand little acts which are so insignihcant as almost to escape the notice of the eye, but which are yet insistent enough to make their impression on the heart. These nothings are the things which would make for us a vital, living picture of that intangible something which we callfthe Spirit of the Corps, and in which is contained the Corps' real history. But where is the pen that can write it? VVe read the stories, the reminiscences, the poems, that have the Corps as their theme, with toleration only, for while we may feel that the writer has done well, we know that the illuminat- ing flash of genius which will make the Spirit of the Corps a part of literature has not come. Once in our decade a man, dear to many cadets who knew him, wrote more than well, but even he wrote only of the reverence with which we think of that S irit. p But if we may not hope to see it Fixed in language, if we may not even hope to have it dehned, the deep, subjective knowledge of what it is, and of how to live to help perpetuate it-these are things that can never be lost. To point out the duty of the Corps in that respect is to tamper with feelings that we do not express even to ourselves. The honor of the Corps lies not in talking but in doing. And what is behind us needs but a tithe of the attention which we must give to what is before us. Not only for ourselves must we keep bright the ideals of the Corps, but for the com- ing generations which succeed us, that we may leave to the young man of the future a heritage of which he can justly say, "Immense have been the preparations for meg Faithful and friendly the arms that have helped me."

A little slow, perhaps, at the start, but at the finish his mv2f2 is generally a considerable quantity. Much to his sorrow, he was ignored on the Com's first list of Cadet Store patrons, but he drifted back from Furlough leaving at trail of broken hearts and sporting a brand-new pair of chevrons. How- ever, a few mpnths as subdiver, together with the arduouslabo-r of crawling "FW Co. Plebes, proved much too strenuous work, and quietly and without any undue ceremony Moose driften back into ranks. With a rail-splitting average of about .4150, he turned his attentions to baseball. But one season put the quietus -on his ambitionsQin that line. Still, after considerable effort, he was induced to hold down right field in the game at Fort Hancock. Here he effectually put down the rumor that he was a has-been. The rakish angle of his cap, and the way he gathered in line drives and cracked out doubles, made the natives believe that Ty Cobb was on his summer vacation.

That such a badly-covered head QD: Could shelter all he knewf, Talk about knowledge! The old gent has more concealed in that pate Z of his than most ordinary mortals could hide in ten. Because of his 'Nl 4 7 extreme wisdom he has been dubbed Daddy. And he puts his knowl- edge to some use. Look at this Howitzer and our Furlough book and see how well he has succeeded. Daddy has one bite noir and that is guard duty. Ever since we were plebes the thoughts of a guard tour have made him grouchy. In yearling camp he used to live at the first sergeant's tent in order to be certain that no plebe slipped a tour over on him. Now that he has been decorated-on the arm-by the Com., the tours do not bother him so much. From a transferred standpoint, Daddy is probably the most active man in the corps. He never stays in one company. Just before the competitive drill he was sent over to "Fw company from NC." In the drill Daddy gummed things so gloriously that it was intimated that his sympathies were not with his com- pany, so now he is in KA" company. In future years when we wish that we could hear him trying to argue the engineering department out of a few tenths Daddy will probably be right back here getting even with some unfortunate grayclad who is tackling the same department. afQ,.ava,g.,fNa....1-.2-.T..-wa.,-1 -----.--. , Q--i,.,,i:3g4qi:.e-.-.,-..-.....,m..-W ana, fa ,,.-,.-- , .,.,gYQ.,u,,,,, wv.:.1.,.,,,AT,iL 5 ,,. . .. ..., ,.,.,.U,.., ,,.. .,,bLe:.,, .... .,..,..-W, W. .mu M... . . ,,m.f.y,f.,. f,,..,5-14-.1--1::........ ,-,,-,,--Q.-.2---nmmew..Q-.-V.-mmm mf-f-f...,..... ,xt-WN.:-,-1--Qnffw.-.v. -f.v-amhiaw,--V A-.

However, Brown does HE bunch yells c'Kill the umpi' or its equivalent, and the only thing not spend 'all of his valuable time quelling riots, for he is not bad- looking, and there is always' the fair sex, and his abilities are of the best in this particular connection. They say he is not over fond of the Post tea-Hghts and other frivolities. Do we believe it? Well, we have never known him to break into the Hospital to deadbeat a Post meal ticket. Brownie is efficient, and a good make. He is able to weigh a question, see a remedy, and find a practical solution. And it is due to men of his type that the Corps has earned the universal name of a conservative body. 5 , ,,... .. , . -.-.-1. ., . .. . ,.-. ,.-,v , Q.. .-,V .v,. N- ,.,, M.

Harley's career at West Point was plain sailing until he made his debut as commander of the guard. Guard mounting was on the stoop. "Twos Rightln commanded Bullock. Not a move from the guard. "Twos Bightln he repeated in tones of thunder. Still the guard stood fast. Never in his cadet experience had he seen mutiny so openly expressed. Suddenly he had an idea. 'CTwos Right, MARCH 1" And the guard moved off as well trained kaydets should. ' Aside from his difficulties on guard, however, Bullock has- had little trouble with the course and he will graduate with flying colors.

This, of course, is the most exalted position to which a kaydet can rise, and if we may believe the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, which is not a Hearst paper, either, the circumstances of his rise are little short of marvelous. Think of it! He Was only a grammar- schoiol boy. Then he came to West Point, and not only soared to the dizzy height of the senior captaincy, but even stood eleven in his class. Truly his rise was marvelous. l Those of us who have had the privilege of associating with Ed are impressed most with his low, Well-modulated, mellifluous voice. It is really wonderful to note the calm that falls over the Corps of Cadets when his tones ripple gently over the Mess Hall. And the sweet, young thing on Cullum balcony is simply charmed when he takes his seat opposite her, leans forward, gazes soulfully into her admiring eyes, and whispers sweetly into her shell-pink ear. Verily, the power of the human voice is Wonderful. g But do not think, gentle reader, that his abilities are confined to making himself socially agreeable. He has filledphis difficult position with diplomacy and efficiency, and the St. Louis paper was not far wrong in its estimate of him, either.

ENRY is not what might be called a ladies, man, true, there 'cThey are all fickle!" The hours that our representatives have been certain rumors, but he steadfastly athrms that among the powers that be spend at teas and hops, Henry spends with his music and his Muse-and let us say right here that he is good at both. The Howitzer is indebted to him for the greater part of its poetry, and the Color Lines and the Hundredth Night owe him much for their success. Henry first broke into the limelight by receiving a,,"slug of footin's" while still 9. Plebeg since then he has been at pretty consistent walker, in fact, spent part of his furlough at it. However, our most vivid picture of Henry is the scene on the trip to Fort Hancock, when he sought to blow the bottom out of the river.

Such he was dubbed, and we can never forget it. It must have been before our Furlough that we first read of his E exploits. First in discussions, first in good rumors, and last ' in the science of Hippology.

Ah! what was life without her? And one day She did not write. There must have been a wreck, on the rail- road. Another day, and no letter. But Jack continues to write, and he Writes I every day for two weeks, and still no response. It,s too much for any man to stand, and he confides in one of us-as follows: "Well, I'll show her that she can't fool with me. I won't write to her any moref' And -it was several months before he learned the bitter truth, that she had been on her honeymoon at the time. ' Mm f--zqi.-WW ,Q ..,,.

He can't appear on the post without a Platoon collecting around him. You couldn't beat them off with a club. What is the secret? Is it his face? or his voice? or his conversation? or the ever-increasing glitter of chevrons? orthe way he rides his charger at infantry drill, with an average six inches of air between his saddle and himself?

Appointed At Large. "Louie," Acting First Sergeant, Lieutenantg Sharpshooterg A.B.g Hop Manager C3, 215 Indoor Meet 14, 35. HE evolution of a character has never been more strikingly illus- trated than in the case of Louie. In his yearling and second class years a P. S. note was about as welcome as an invitation to K B.-Ache a skin for an intentional breach of confinement. QThey were both rather frequentj The time was when he dreaded his tour as hop manager, and he even re-signed that exalted position in his second class year, on the plea that it involved too much social obligation. But now our erstwhile roughneck is as much at home where the tea cups tinkle and the femmes giggle as he was previously on the Area's broad highway. The change has come simultaneously with his chevrons. , But in one respect he has remained constant. With the exception of a few days as a second classman when he leaned toward the red of the Coast Artil- lery, he has been true to the Cavalry yellow, and that strenuous and romantic branch will be one efficient officer to the good when 1913 makes her bow. ' An enumeration of the grinds he has perpetrated during his career as a cadet Would, in comparison, make "Life', look like a dissertation on Philosophy by P. G.

HE word "Pink', b1'ings to the minds of many of us a very definite picture. The hot, white, company street, the company in full dress, awaiting parade, and the Q voice of the boy captain, CcWell, you can talk all you want, but somebody,s going to get skinned." That phrase did great things for "A" Company. In his fifteen months of pastorage Pink taught that rabble to keep step, made Don Sutton shine his brasses, and almost got a move out of Considine. Then they transferred him to the worse rabble of sub-runts, where he now presides. But even there Pink has hopes. The gory quill portrayed above is witness that he ever treads the path of duty. Also the path to the hotel. He never misses a chance to travel that route. The sickest we ever saw him was during that sad fortnight in first class camp when he was in con, with a Whole platoon waiting outside. E To fill his cup of sorrows, his wife, Billy Johnson, did the honors for both in that period. And h' ' Z Billy was always careful to ask, just before leaving, "Is there anyt ing specza I can tell her, Carey ?" . if, 65 1:-rzszmsslmzaz-ppwxwwam -X '- A af -' e f + ....

By all the laws of the Academy it should have fetched him a captaincyat least, but it was only good for three bars, and these he had hard luck with. Which didn't 'appear to rutile him in the least.

He doesn't seem to draw 1.5 all the time, at that. Three years of football on the scrubs is no small job. Just when things were about to come his way, a little undue familiarity with a Plebe on Number 8 lost him his pass to the skin book and put him into the Ancient Order of Pathfinders for his First class winter. Still we are always greeted With the same smile and the same bum grinds, gen- erally not original. And we predict that upon his release he will be juggling the same tea-cups at the same places on the post. 77 ,, . ,, ,., U, , , Q.,,,.,, ,,,,, .,... V .,,,,,,,,1,,,,,,,.1: ...,,.

I P ' 'iu' HEN the Big 'Un had his little difference with the Departments Qt If and dropped back from 1912 to meet us, we judged from his XX altitude and contours that the class had gained an athlete.

He is last fall on Franklin Field Was under his leadership. the only All American in the corps, and the hard-fought battle we witnessed In the matter of chevrons Devore's career was meteoric, and speaks of divided ambitions. When he got his sergeantcy he had a three years' record of roughneck to live up to, and he hated to impair it. It suffered a little in' the file-closers, though. In Camp, what with that acting top, it suffered still more, and when he blossomed into a sure-enough lieutenant, it appeared to go by the board entirely. But one day came the fateful S. O. Whereupoen the Big ,Un slipped contentedly back into the roughneck squad-the "grena- diers"--With a row of admirers in the rear rank, and Crittenberger in the file- closers to make grinds for the crowd. And they all lived happily ever after.

J fly, OTHER" has added a new word to our vocabulary. It was f f intentional, too. One afternoon in camp an unsuspecting classmate asked Dillow to spoon for him. The femme was a .rw peach, so he gladly accepted. The poor classmate never even had the chance to see the "Peach,' after parade from that time. He was "dilloiWed." Have you ever been Hdillowedn? "Ooo I" say the girls, awe just love it." Something must have developed out of his strenuous spooning in our first class camp. There are some who would swear that he has a controlling interest in a miniature. At least he talks of femmes during the blue haze of a Monday breakfast, so judge for yourself. "Mother" has always been one of the best point getters for us in the indoor meet. His Work is hard and consistent, and he makes it count. He. has ever been willing to lend a helping hand to our needful goats, and has no doubt saved many of them from being numbered among the gone but not forgotten. In future years we shall hear about some monstrous bridge that has been recently constructed by the Engineer corps, and We shall have to blame it all on Dillow.

His remarkable record as a spoonoid does not constitute his only claim to f Q.THOUGrH he hails from P. D. land, Duvall is not a real 241 karat fame, for as a yearling he came into the lime-light as the object of special attention by a certain member of the AT. D. However, this was occasioned by an accident to his full dress hat at parade, and is another story entirely. He brought with him to West Point a smile that has been the delight of many a femme, and four years of Blue Mondays and early reveilles have not served to diminish this evidence of his good nature: It was back in our ,plebe days when his fresh and innocent appearance earned for him the enduring sobri- quet of "The Lily-Maid? It has stuck to him like a brother, and when in years to come the nation honors him as one of its ablest soldiers, his classmates will recall with pride that the Lily-Maid was one of their number.

ANGLEFOOT has boned about everything but bootlick during his cadet days, and he has incidentally, though unintentionally, cgi mates is unquestioned, and an inspection of his chevron curve will testify to the opinion of the authorities. He began with a high- . ranking corp, which his characteristic good nature soon caused acquired a great deal of that. His standing among his class- him to lose. By first class camp he had been purged of his misdeed, was cautiously presented with an acting sergeantcy, and assigned to the plebe detail. Here he shone. When the remainder of the detail had exhausted their patience and voices upon a particularly Wooden specimen, "Eng,' took him out on the plain, and, with his characteristic mixture of kindness and firmness, at the end of six hours taught him the intricacies of "left face.', He has labored earnestly for four years with the Y. M. C. A., and, along With Archie Dorst, has felt himself personally responsible for the salvation of the Corps. At the beginning of Bible study season each year he made the rounds with his shepherdis crook, enrolling his classmates in the good work. Incidentally, as a result of his persistent Work on the gridiron, four of our football teams have been just a little better than they would otherwise have been.

S. according to Matthew. Since that time Falk has continued his smiling way between the Scylla of the Academic Board and the 'Charybdis of the T. D., without being much wor- ried by either. He early joined the ranks of the A. B., but has since eschewed the cause of pedestrianism forever. He is a desultory spoonoid, a prominent figure at feed-hops, and ever ready to get off' a grind on someone else or laugh when it is on himself. A . ' ' He still retains his unswerving loyalty to all Georgia folks, and has the reputation of being the squarest man in the class.

Then he switched to the ranks of the 5 spoonoids, and won great honors. There have been months on end when he never tasted Mess Hall ice-cream, months on end when he never failed to come back on extra-extended, to the anguish of his suffering wife. The question was-is he just out to exhibit his dress coat, or is there a deeper motive? But that question was answered about six months ago-, when he sought out Craig one day, under vows of secrecy. 4'See here, Louief' he s-aid, '4you're dragging Miss Dumgard to-night, aren't yon? Well, I want you to bootlick me a lot to her. Tell her what a fine file I am, and all about my popularity and efficiency. See Pw ,Craig saw. V So We have a line on our Cooper now.

Once he drew a slight slug on the Area-but was for0'iven, ornamented, and has never since offended the most captious in the Department of Deportment. Little Boy Blue takes all things seriously, including spooning. Else Why spoon so inveterately when it is su-ch obvious agony? To see him standing on one leg and wringing his hands in a mixture of bliss and embarrassed agony, before a maid, makes us feel so weak that we have to go home for a skag. Nevertheless if a husky maiden wants to see how fast one can ,go at a hop and not be thrown out, let her help Frizzie dance his famous two-step, "The Train VVrecker." For two years he has been the main-stay of the Cullum Squad, and credit is due for his willing work in meets. He pulls classically mournful harmonies out of his violin during the passing of the slot-machine in chapel, in a manner that leaves no doubt of his musical genius. His Doughboy regiment gets a man who is an adept at minding his own business, who never speaks ill of any one, and whose loyalty to a friend is unshakeable.

Coming from the habitat of Emma Goldman, and on terms 'gl of intimacy with Czolgosz, and having the fierce gaze of those whose 1 pastime is to tickle the ribs of others with long, thin blades, we were ky' justly but unnecessarily cautious. For in reality he is always gentle and ready for a laugh, save when he won renown for himself over the beasts, with whom he was known as Mr. Sinbad. In the football season he can always be found watching practice and trying to blow the first two notes of the charge on his bugle. y y ' The sailor is an ardent horseman, and is only deterred from taking the field by the kno-wledge that a salt in battery is necessarily fatal. However, the dream may be realized in the cavalry, a cozy den, crackling fire, big morris chair, soft arms around his neck, and on the hearth' may be seen playing' the little--but hush!

V HO is that sweet-looking boy with the pink cheeks who just passed? Oh, I just love him!" This in sweetly modulated 1' feminine tones as Fritz swaggered by. What happened? Hmm! The result may still be seen if you watch his cheeks as he reads this. Freddy is a Ib-rave man. When we were mere plebes he shocked this sedate Army post by singing HI-lighland Maryv at a color line concert. Then, when we were in First class camp, he braved the whole corps with a Fourth of July oration. And he got away with it. Yes, Fritz is a brave man.

From his Plebe days, when he used to slumber soundly-if not always peaceably-on top of his H':if7hfl locker every hop night, and formed the famous B.-Ache ' League, which so aroused the admiration of Louie Beard and other guardian angels, up to the latest Ordnance exam, he has always been the same, calm, unruffied, and grinning. Almost any warm Sunday afternoon you may see the Cub, in company with Oiseau King, walking toward the Hotel, headed, p-robably, for Nliss VVarner's. Gift' enjoys every- thing connected with West Point, even the scenery. But he maintains with tears in his eyes that it can only be properly appreciated from the vicinity of Fort Put, or up behind the Cadet Chapel, that "most wonderful example of American architecture." The Mutt insists that he was once a pretty good file, and declares that West Point has ruined him. He particularly accuses the treachery of King, and the evil examples set by Archie Dorst and Pistol Paul. ' It is on record that he has ordered three miniature class rings since Furlough, but he is now talking Cavalry. The inference is obvious. .

Jim also has a mania for autos, and after graduation will be the proud possessor of a car, and of someone who will enjoy it thoroughly. Itls not hard to guess that it will just be a cute little runabout at first. Later, When his pay is raised, it might be a touring car. M Jim has earned all that is coming to him. He has won his MA" in football, and has held down more varieties of athletic jobs than anybody in the class. The company that gets him as goat lieutenant will have a crack track team. af tw , .-1.,,n,,,..mw..,.....f,,,x-,-,.q-.w.t- .w1afm,. e,Z.,a.1f,,,szm.1-.:e.Q.Qa:Qf,--1 f ,.,.11.,- QA ".f.f.-Q ,L-,ar1.cz5E2?'1L22.1w.-14-7:5-....,'f 1ae7x.:5zzz::'3-pszcmafawf..W',4:.z'fH:w::nzziaf2' f 1' 41 y 1 V ff is 1- .1 J, ff 0 D 2 .J .lf 1 0 .1....a..4....f 'filvpyiifzffffw-fiznpsi-N '1 V 4 vm.-Affwff:-qavfamuwuale,.f4wg-,.f1QtQf.m-r..f':-:,f.wfmm-31,-Asn..mQ,,,,z:tme1ew:4.'z.f:a:fziazz2f,,Lays-smQm.':Q'1wfe'm2:r:2Mamma ffRvf'-1:z9z92A,ss.f-mffg-f--fL.-.y- M Q,,,.,.,,,,,,,,,,,,,., .,,.,..cazmmz.,au..-f..,,..,,...1,,,.,,.:.,,.-W.. ,..,.-.-,.W,,,,.-,.f.Y,.,, ..,.,w,-mm. . ., .. ..-,-n-may.-ww-a.- W.. f.vffW,a,,f,,y,A- ,.-,,.,--.- x DOUGLASS TAFT GREENE Chicago, Ill.

'fWell, stand up, etc. - Don't you suppose that I printed thirty-seven hop cards on your account last summer?" Such was his greeting from a surprising number of Yearlings when he had pitched his tent in C-amp Delafield. It is the price one must pay for attending cadet hops before entering the Academy. Another difficulty was his inability to perspire, no matter h-ow hard he might brace. This fail- ing secured much extra attention from the file-closers, until he learned to use camphor ice, which would melt and play the part. I He has always taken a great interest in riding, target practice, hops, and athletics. Although not very large, he has helped in track meets and played in the semi-finals of a tennis tournament. After graduation you will see him in the Cavalry, as he is one of those who can see no other branch. Certainly he would not take Doughboys after a cer- tain diill we saw last summer. D As company commander, he found Infantry drill a very difficult matter, not to mention two hours' subsequent sword manual by request. In the saddle, however, he feels quite at home. -.1-f ..f":1rL-z-::wq--.,l,M.,.,.,.-..Y...,,.,,.,, .fa W ,,-.

That, of course, could mean only one thing. He came to West Point with the chevrons in his suit-case. He hasn't had occasion to unpack them yet, for we Wear a different brand here, and, after a brief trial of the joys of sub-diver and table commandant, he,s even rejected our brand, but it's never worried him much. That mantle of gloom is generally caused by such dilemmas as having invited three for the same day, andreceived word that they're all coming. For he,s out for the,All-American Cup Race, as a matter of course, and in the meantime never misses a hop. Thatas why we call him "Hopper." And why do We call him 4'Reconnaissance'9?

Perhaps that accounts for him. Goodness knows, 1 X we cannot. He has been doing things backwards-ever X16 C since we were plebes. He does keep us guessing. We all wonder if he will run an absence on our graduation formation. It is an oppor- tunity, and Hans has never yet failed us. E This is the way Hans does things. He pipes Christmas leave so hard that he misses a class formation. He thinks of graduation so intently that the uTac" 'catches him in improper uniform. He dreams of the cavalry so con- sistently that he saddles his horse with the pommel where the cantle should be. He does all these things and many more. Hans is quite a broadswordsman and a good little boxer. All that despite the fact that he was born in Japan, partly V educated in Germany, and then came to West Point.

OME wise sage must have divined that Bill wanted a bootlick on n Hungry Joe, for to no other reason can be attributed his nick- names of "Preacher" and 'cParson.'9 He paid dearly for a couple of annual trips to the Hospital with an appendix, three or four teeth, and part of his jawbone, but realized on the investment. He realized, all right. The reason he does not carry the heavy responsibility of a cadet ofiicer on his shoulders is because of that Plebe practice-march formation, when he demon- strated his strategic ability by capturing, single handed, an entire company Without the least noise or confusion. The authorities decided he needed no fur- ther instruction or experience. Bill has one of those quiet, let-the-otherfellow-dovthe-talking natures which require you to come to him.

Between lllay 1 and l November 1, inclusive, she may be found at any time during release from quarters, on her mattress or holding down a comforter under the Y. lvl. C. A. trees. Between November and hlay the comforter will be on a chair, in close proximity to the radiator, and Belinda will be deep in Hojas Selectas or simple shear-boning Coast. Why Coast? Echo answers not. Perhaps the millionaire tobacconist's daughter we used to hear so much about is still waiting, back in the Bluegrass, or maybe it was that famous sub-caliber practice on Constitution Island that fired her youthful imagination. At any rate, the Dutchman himself is no more ardent Rabbit.

As Plebes we watched his antics when he first broke loo-se in the y free world of Yearling Campg as we were then unbiased and pig-E9 unprejudiced judges, so we say again, they named him ' well. He has a little lingering pang of regret that he was not dubbed HCutie," for that is what all the femmes call him, and the femmes- they should know. But we could not let him usurp the fame of our lamented Wallie Crawford. H Notice the Monk root so very emphatically during a Navy game. There,s a reason, and we can prove it. If you have missed the select performances of "Goat" vs. "Monk', in the Mess Hall, you have missed the big show. Not all of Harryis time has been spent in antics, or even at hops with his red sash dangling so gracefully. He has helped to solve many knotty class questions with his variety of ready suggestions. The "Monk" may be caged soon, but we doubt it. ,3,,,L:M,:Z,Z223553h-f.-.-.-Y-f4.,,ys1ef---1-g., ,,-,,..-. ,WM .,.., ,, .,r., ,., ,.v,.., , .we .... , ,V., ,,53g:5,L.,,,ssr.-ss-.Q.-.ug1233:-:::Li.,a-',,im,,Y, .

Lil is a mighty wielder of the big mitt and the big stick. Sounds rather Bull Moosy, but the Queen isn't a politician, he is just a walloping good ball- player. In fact, he wallops the ball so hard that the Nliddies have seriously V considered giving the Army one more run every time it is Lilis turn to bat and then calling it square. But we object, because one run is not enough. Our cannibal queen is going in the cavalry-at least he eats, drinks, and sleeps cavalry. Perhaps there is method to his reasoning.

F there happens to be a large gathering in front of barracks just before dinner, discussing the Hay Bill or the T. D.'s latest West Point grind, look for a very interested auditor on the Hanks of the crowd, with his mouth shut tight. That will be McCulloch. He has firmly fixed opinions on many matters, but it needs a very polite invitation to make him talk. Otherwise he maintains an attitude of smiling, silent good nature that no-thing can ruflle-at least, one thing only. Never pronounce his name as if it carried a uk" on the end. That must have been a po-int of honor with his ancestral Border clans, for it sends him right up into the air. lNIac,s spare time is devoted to playing the fiddle and inventing eiccuses for not going spooning. The traditional Min confinement" won't do, for he gets about three demerits a year, so he's constrained to be very sick whenever he gets an invitation.

For a long While I doubt existed in our minds as to Whether Mac really lived in bar- racks or on the Post, but itis the same old story of laying the blame on Lovey. Jack would mate Wonderfully with the most modern suffragette after his thor- ough course in domestic science under the able instruction of George. Mac began his career as one of the Com's Own brilliantly and auspiciously, but later it simmered down until it bore a close resemblance to that maximum pressure curve in interior ballistics. fYou know how it goes down, at the end.j Mac has steady and dependable habitsg he is a thorough and conscientious Worker, has a bright and sunny disposition-all of which assures us that he vvill be a success and that whatever branch he decides to take Will be a lucky one. f 1s'M ffM'-fff--1Q11a-f-1--'-'-'f-:-'-1'ffff'-f:f:f:-:ff-'11-av ------'- a -mmff-2Jmums:f-1-1f-ff:+::a-.fffyma.wxggfwgf,-m,,.,.,...,....,...,.,,,,1,L,,ME ,,,m,,.,.,..,,r,,,l,,,e,3.,,,,,,,,,.,, ,,,,,,..,,.A.,,.,,.,,,,,.,,,,,-, . 3,,,,,,,,.e.,,,3,,14,,.,' Emma... .... , .,,af4-f v---.-... ...., H,-I-Y,f, .-f.-..,,.gagk,Y,,, .,,,,1a.,,-,,a.,...,,.zi,,..,..,,.,..- ..... , ,,...,,,,.,,,,.....,-,..-f.f..-,,,,,,..,.,e1..L.,.,,,,,s.- m,.,,,o..w,,,,..,,,.,,3,z!:+:::.,,,,,,,Tw,,,..,m-mL.z,,:,:im..g .l.. . ,a..:f,..,l,,.,.,1.,Ms...M,,,,.m,Y.,.,,,, ,,,.A, L , ,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,.,,r,,.,v ,,,, ..,,,.,.,,.,,m,.,.,,,, ..,,,.,. , .,,-.,.,.,,,.,,.,...... ,M,,,,,,,,,,M, .,., ,.,.,,a.,,,,,,,,,,,Z,,,,,g,,,,,,,,.,,.,,,,,,,,,,,,Mi,E,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.,,A 105 .,. , 7 e, ,. . ...M -.,.,..J,...m.-.W-Mf.,.9.,-,,....,.. ,....-,sa--..

ELLIEU dreams of the cavalry. Indeed, he is always boning cavalry drill regs, and dreaming about that fine thor- oughbred he is going to buy when he graduates. His crawling abilities made him respected if not thanked by the plebes. He became one of the Com's own in his second-class year, and developed this crawloid ability upon the plebes of 1915. Thus, when the important duty arose of starting the plebes of 1916 out up-on their new life, he was chosen to give them the "Hell that teaches in a hurryf' Needless to say, he gave it with all the enthusiasm he could muster. That was considerable, for he left among them a reputation of being the meanest little devil they ever hoped to meet. Socially he is a climber. To every hop he goes, and from them goes some femme thinking she has made another admirer. Rumors started by a fair visitor have him engaged. He denies it-says he would if he could, but he can't- can,t keep a horse and a wife.. 1 ,,... . . HM ,,,, ar. W...-,,.f....,-ss..-M......,....v .s ,'-vm.-.VW .,.,., - .

Simon, to all outward appearances, is no ladies' man, and the only social functions he attends are those at which he is assured of a good feed.

There may be one or two points of depravity that he hasn,t touched yet, but in general he has done his honest best to make two blades of ri' grass grow Where a path ran before. Hels Worked industri- ously for four years at the Gym, and in every class of ath- letics that the Academy allows, acquired an excellent efficiency record as sub- div., and come near to a record big-game day at the target-range. For when he starts out to correct for that mirage, a tae or a few dozen classmates in the way aren't going to hinder him.

Will thank Nick that they have survived the onslaughts of the ,J .,.- Departmentsg for he has ever been ready to lend a helping hand to a goat in distress, with the result that the class is stronger in numbers by several than it would otherwise have been. He 71 gx has been pretty good to himself, incidentally, as far as class standing is con- cerned. When he entered in March, 1909, he was absolute goat. The first tra-nsfer he went to the engineers and has been rising everisince. 1 Math or spec are all one to him, but as his engineering instructor informed him, "A memory is a valuable thing." VVith that as an element of success, Nick should do well. Next to boning tenths, his chief interest in life is hopping. He doesn't confine him-self to dragging one femme, either. In his second class year par- ticularly, to drop into his room was like calling at an intelligence office. "Say, Pvc -got a femme coming up Saturday, and she's going to bring four friends.

He isn,t presi- dent of the Y. BI. C. A., or captain of a team, or a big noise of any sort. But if there's anything he wontt do to help a friend, or any belief in his duty, once he gets it behind that stone-faced brow, that he won't see through to a. finish, his classmates have yet to hear of it. The one possible blot in his career is his sad fess as a spoonoid. He shaved his head once to dead-beat a hop, and since then the femmes won't love him. However, since Camp Hasbrouck he,s been in modest retirement, so that shouldn't worry him much. As a matter of fact, it probably doesn't worry him at all. He continues to keep his mouth shut and make friends.

ENTLEMEN-our Goat-the man who has toyed with C every Department since the days of B. S.-who goes into 1 the world on the morrow carrying' with him our utmost confidence in his success. For though he has not boned so much under the glare of late lights as to necessitate the cutting in of another dynamo down at the power-house, he possesses a matter-of-fact brain and an evenness of disposition that will make good anywhere. Friendly, affable, and determined in his ideas, he will be equally at home in the far-off Philippines or as an entrant in the Horse Show. Dana. is the gayest, most quixotic, and irrepressibly buoyant soul in the class-especially when he is with his mule- no matter if it blew up Monday morning with the world bleak and black, every reveille, and little green devils grimaced at every turn, the joyful promise of to-morrow's luck is sure to bring the smile and' every-ready jest, and those who heard never failed to be cheered. A mask of good-humored indifference guards his actual personality, and we have always had evidence that he is leading a double lifeg but his spooning is just as a pastime, and we wager his bachelor days on a Cavalry Post will neier be disturbed by things feminine. 4 'f--zsxezeze-:Aw-sew .:z:fsh1:c-.'ffem:sJ:-1-me-1'-1--f 5-' N""fYfwe+x-:e:u.,.m-- -Lasszwiza.-sau.-.'f.',f.fQ :ara-,..'-maz,w,.n-4 af-msisexas.-14 1f,,w.f:1.,.v.-.wav 1,-..4.-.Q.-.Q.e.:a1fae .-.------.g,-fwqf.--.y-.ff.- -g.- -ss-.....1,.. ,. .,mg+:-s14.:-.y.W1.mm1o:r:v.l.,.-.,,1.sa..,4.W-uf.,,.uww-.MY,,...., ,N,,.-.-,.1.lQ.yg55L, ,,,,,.,-,:5:L-H-7.-ffffsff1-1'-:f,,,v .:1,,,,,, .

OTHING ever takes him by surprise. He always adjusts himself to ! Q ' circumstances, and gets results with an exceptional minimum of exer- tion. He can do anything anybody else can do, and has a few -spe- ' cialtiesg and he doesnit Want any bouquets until he has delivered the goods. He fights shy of anything that might savor of solicitation, and was a sad disappointment to the T. D. They tried to make him overcome his natural independent propensities and become a disciplinarian of first class bucks, with so little success that he now lugs a gun to parade. The tinge of indifference in a man's make-up may come from two causes- one of which is a justinable self-confidence. This is the kind he has, and it is the salt for an interesting Scotch-Irish mixture. Sandy has invariably contributed a goodly number of points to the class's total in both indoor and outdoor meets. We must except, however, the indoor meet of our second class year. On this occasion he concluded that his legs were too thin to look well intights, so he only entered the flying rings event at the last minute Without preparation, and wearing gym trousers. And he didn't do so badly, either. we'0KM11vwff1v-fww--f-fex--wwf-1-1---H-'f-'H-' ----- fm-ummm1-.-:-ff::f-,-,a,-,r--4-.'.'z-Wggf,--.A-QR-LN-.W,aqW..a....Nv.....W-...gmac-Mwm.-.M.. .... - .-.V.am.......As,....,..a--Y ..... 1 w-qmmw--1:-x-use-Q--sv --w----as--v m.vWAffff,mwiam-...m.,....,mm..ae-Tm-MUJJ-e.a.T.f..f..v.m93,a.,,, H ...... ,. ..,...W.,...................,.,.,.,-..a,.,,,c ,,.,,.,,..,..:z.,,,,,.,.,,,,,.,,,,.,,,.,a,M,., ,N .,,,,, ,eu ,,,,, ,,,,,r ,.... ,.. ,.,,, .,..,...,....-a-.-T-n f..,-.fmzvpuw ,.-.- . fig-1-ef.: ..-f A-.f::::.,..ma:E.......- ......... ,......

In the meantime, one might as well be a make as a 'Qllltlllll buck. He started boning it early, and has incidentally acquired a beautiful bass voice, an arm movement that somehow suggests f i 5 X y I M 'cC', Company and a deserved popularity in successive plebe fj H classes. The harvest is garnered at last, and he rests on one of those uncomfortably dazzling pinnacles where chevrons cost six dollars per. Sweet is pleasure after pain, and, sated with glory, his chief delight now is in awaiting the advent of the mail-carrier. Yes, theyire always. in the same hand- writing, and they always have the same postmark, and the same sweet, faint perfume, and that soulful expression in Jimmie's deep brown orbs never varies.

T'S a little unfortunate that Perk decided to join us so long after the fires of youth had ceased to burn in his veins. When we first met him he seemed to have fallen into almost hopeless senility. But he realized it just in time, and has labored for lo, these many years on a system of exercises and deep breathing all his own: Thanks to that and a liberal use of Sana- togen, he has almost regained his old-time vigor. Perk's chief delight is in retailing his experiences in college days, down in the Old Dominion, when he twirled his moustache and swung his swagger-stick with the best of them.

ERRINEFS brilliancy in the Academic Building is inter- " mittent, appearing chiefly before examinations. But he S " has a memory for biographies of baseball artists that rl would make Nicholasis description of Gettysburg sound like AS 1 N Pat Rafferty discussing the reduced length of the initial air space. His scent for "dope" made him a famous athletic reporter on a Massachusetts podunk before he appeared here. He has followed every move- ment Aof our team for four years, and William R. Hearst pleaded with him all last fall to resign and write up the Worldis Series. He even had Wooidrow Wilson picked in 1910. One expects him to apologize for going to a hopyg but when he does start spooning, We all need to watch our femmes.

' He I TH: Ill has played fo-otball and dodged Hell and Won a star, and he wore a pai-ri-of chevrons that were untainted by quill. 'r '-', Perhaps Snorro's most unfortunate characteristic is his sense of humor, Which is robust but a trifle crude. In the old days his idea of a keen grind was to hold somebody under a spigot and season him with ink. Since then it has been crystallized but not refined. GifHn asserts that the Swede has three standard grinds, which he developed in Camp Hasbrouck. All passers-by on Bootlick Alley he greeted with either NWho do you think you are EW or "Get to Hfadesj out of here." This was followed by 'Tll skin you at parade to- night."

His fighting spirit is not confined to that, away back in Beast Barracks he showed his ability to hold down a sentinel post with military efficiency.

OLMEWHERE, from -some place, once upon a time, there came to join fb 6' us a long, happy, irresponsible, exceedingly likeable young child, at ! 2 least ten years old. And now We have been here for ages, and yet he seems to have grown younger. On which account we call him Lindy. No one could possibly call him anything but Lindy. If youave ever seen the gleeful Way in which he handles a basket-ball amid a maze of arms, legs, angles, and bones, you will understand the absolute necessity of calling him Lindy. Furthermore, we have seen him play baseball. May the Fates that rule things as they should be ruled give our Lindy one little chance to show us all that he plays baseball with the same dash and eagerness that he exhibits upon the old Gym floor. And with a slightly less risque costume. And Lindy is an authority on guard duty. He has served on guard in all capacities, from private of the guard to commander of the same. After taking a whirl at all of them, he decided in first class camp that the ammanuensis had less to do and got more sleep than any man on the detail. So, he recorded departures and returns the entire summer.

His energies are not con- fined to any particular branch, as his record will show. Foot- ' ball, hockey, tug-of-war, discus throw, spooning, hopping, tea-fighting, bridge, and tenth-gathering show his versatility. After furlough a persistent rumor went the rounds that Rosie had fallen in the usual Way. Still, even at this late date, no direct evidence can be sub- mitted against him, although several times the circumstances have been very suspicious. Be that as it may, he always seems to make a big hit with all things feminine, in fact, on one occasion one of the dear things Was heardyto remark that she did so like to see Mr, Rosevear play hockey, because he had such lovely legs. p Rosie is a man strong in his own convictionsg so much so that he fre- quently is called bullheaded.

V O Charlie claims that the law recently passed by Congress With reference to the delivery of mail on Sunday is ex post facto, and hopes it will be thrown out by the courts. Guess why? Well, the answer is, why does he crawl up on Crowas Nest, and sit there with that far-away look? He seems to be, at present, the one and only man in our class who is not going to take the Cavalry, for he is surely Coastward-bound, and he makes no bones about it. You underclassmen are bound to see him at the Yale game next year, for Sandy Hook looks good to him. It is well known that he would be still talking to the femme out- side of the Second Div, if a P had not come along. The incident incidentally stunted his chances for an official career. Vaya V. con Dios, Charlie, and lay siege to the Coast. We are all with you.

He does admit, however, that the mess hall is not exactly like the Astor. When it comes to baseball we are always on our feet shouting for Twinkle. He cav-orts around second base, out in right field and-in fact, all over the lot. He is a worse robber than most umpires. He even stoo-ps to rob visiting teams o-f two-base hits by some sort of aeroplane tactics above second base. The Navy has cause to remember him. His timely hit brought the last game our Way.

Indeed, it's often been questioned why he shouldn't leave the grinding hardships' of a kadet life and seek a life of ease and honor in the Band. The best furlough songs we sung around Battle Monument in yearling spring were from his pen, the largest and best disciplined platoons that cover the Flirtation Circuit are still to be found in his charge. And just as an incidental, one wonders how '13 would have shown up in track events if Katrina had not been among us to carry off all those firsts and seconds. iw,,ww.In.f.,,1,:EM,,.t4v,w.-:.-.a:.- ....,.w,,,,,. .Nam ,....,.,...,, ,,,, , ,....Q,,g.,,a,5gM,,,,,,.J,s.-. adn., y -. -x,,,mWa,,,,, MW .M fa ,ar qmzauaa.. .W .,,,,., W.. ..... -ff-f l W--I 'ww-uf---v-,N Jlumnw,,,,,-T-.:-,madlglN,.,,,1,,,,,,mW ,,.. ..., ,,,.,....,,w...W...,..,. ff- . ,,gmfs.- I fam:-,. ,.,,g1,,,,Q'. .r ,, - a u:1:L:::f:cf"+'c-ximsygi-ymff.w .a.,,.,, .,,,m.......:+..,,,gy,y,A-212-1-p5e1:.M,.,,,.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.,.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.m,. .. ,,i,,,E.W.,nga:r f-ma.. ,,..

US is credited with being the hardest bracer in the class. His chin sank clean out of sight in Beast Barracks, and has stayed there ever since, through a diversity of makes that has led at last to the haven M I of a nice, peaceful lieutenancy. He has accomplished his tour here T with excellent success and no unnecessary noise-good rid-oid, effi- cient fusser, and a far more military captain than that undisciplined rabble in "Ev Company deserved. Who can forget the look of unspeakable horror on his face that day at parade, when cold, tactical tones directed him: "Face about, Mr. Sliney, and see how your company does the manual." Per- haps his best testimonial is the fact that his ex-wives-he contracted several trial-marriages at different times-are always loud in his praise. When a man's room-mate won't knock him, he must be either perpetual orderly or a pretty good file. s ,, ay. .Q . ,. ,, J,.,,..ew,,.......,.,t,.t.,,.-A L..,-.eff-Y-T.. . w,,,.i,L,,,mf-els: gm--fa 5 . -.f-,- : 128 -EmE5---fBmf--- swa- ,., .x.was -- --- L .,..,. , ,,..e,,....s. ....

HEY raise mules out in that State, and their motto is, 'cYou,ve got to show me." Now, nobody could accuse Spencer of mulishnessg but he can, and does, give an accurate imitation of the noise of one. The instrument of torture is a cornet, whose damnable strains are still a signal for his division to arise and seek peace in the Dialectic. Spencer thinks it's great. As for the motto, he showed us a thing or two on the range last summer, when he shot up that sliding green phantom to the extent of thirty- one points, and got his name on the beautiful silver cup that they keep in the safe in the Supe's oflice. He made some famous demonstrations to- Manus up there beside the mo-ving target, and probably won great paternal approba- tion. And he's shown things to the Departments with suflicient effect to graduate high in his class with a mighty small bill for midnight oil.

HIS easy-going, slow-moving Alabainan is generally, behind that lazy smile, quite dead to the World. But about once a month he starts on a regular tearg and then beware, for he is Without rhyme or reason. Equipped with oil-tans, Winter hop gloves, M W " and a dress coat dated 1906, he sallies forth to the Saturday U4 hop, and gives the ladies a treat. All Sunday he continues his L' mad careerg a little Walk along Flirtation, or perhaps a more arduous spooning formation in some secluded nook above the Chapel. hdonday he sleeps through reveille, Engineering and Law, forgets his lights, leaves the heat turned on, and goes to retreat shy a cap. Lily has lots of tenthoid ability, whenever he chooses to show it. But it is rarely that he does, he has ambled his Way through VVest Point, firmly anchored to the Immortals. He is absolutely independent, with a backbone a yard wide, and considers it entirely too much trouble to bootlick anybody, even the T. D. His sleeves are as clean as a whistle. - wrfhvaecffaezgwyy.-f1..qf4,,a,,,av.-.-a,,,.:cQ,.e.f.E.af.-.v.,,.e-.,2:m.,,s1K..,..,.Y--M.-.. --- - -- -- f -----L. - --wee.-iav-vw-:..f.w.e,....,.,.t.m., .--. . ,W.,-.pmei-f,1..,wia,.....,'.ams..,.m'..-,n.,,....W R.,,maWW...,W.,m,,..em..t,,.,...,.,....,M .swgafxey , -amwwavawaiffv Mm.....,,.saa.:eM.,.4-ea-by ,wma --- W' -- - f - V f ...Y-L-. .. - gmail'-ff-ff-i,g:.,.f.s,s,...m ..,,t..,.,.,,.,,.:,,. ,.,... .,,:-,,,,,,, ....,... , .ws..,.,,,.2s.s..xw,,,-...,.t.m,...,.....,....m,..,,.. - . .. . .... ,,,,. .. .M.,.,.,....,..--.Mira-.1-.miaqe M.-,,.i..,,.w ,W-.-..,-,...n.f,.s.w,-E-,,w.Mav fm.-.mga-,-.',,v..a..e, 130 e W gs E3 ily tl i E ill 3 e E REDONDO BENJAMIN SUTTON i Portland, Ore.

TQ P There is one thing that bothers Thurman considerably. When "a pu'fect gentl'man from Gawgan can speak and be happy without that consonant url' in his vocabulary, how can anyone expect him to pronounce words from a heathen language that sanctions two "r,s,' right together? Yes, it bothers Allen, we know. We have heard him try the Spanish "erre." He emits such a realistic "urr-urr-rr,' that we involuntarily look to see if that blamed dog is muzzled. The past two years Allen G. has had a nerve-racking task trying to keep Hans Herwig from running wild. It has been a severe strain on his happy dis- position, but he has survived. He still sings "Little Davidf' And that is well worth hearing. .,dZ1,,,,M,vvc Nm,,,,,635-,g,95a:f+zfs-,.a-,,qgm,g,,,4pm2zz-if1+mif::..,.,.:-maapg-:V.,,w.E.'fe,.sX.-.-,..,,..,4.-.... .... .Mo-l...-.,..a.,.q-wx., .......,...,.:.c ,.r.

One endowed I with less staying qualities than he possesses would never have survived the Hrst three months of West Point had he had the same difficulties to overcome as far as a natural inability to accumulate tenths is concerned. As a result, though his situation has at times been precarious, he will amble up, after all of us have performed the same pleasant duty, and receive his precious parchment. A narration of how Speck paid off the mortgage on the old farm would read like one of Horatio Alger Jrfs gems of fiction, He early mastered the art of boning check-book, with the result that he drew the amazing balance of S280 when he departed on Furlough. Immediately upon his return he resumed his former tactics to amass another fortune. From the hospital, during first class camp, he sent word to his wife, Bullock, to take his blouse to the cadet store and have one new service stripe added. Bullock, with his characteristic wooden- ness, had the garment cleaned, pressed, the old service stripes removed, and three new ones sewed on. The house of Bullock and Toohey is no more. -wgfgya,Q,,,,,,,,Su,,QF,..,.e.s,-...A-M,rv.,-m:,N,,-,a2f,W,.,r .... ,,,,..,. ,,,,, l.,,f,,s,i,.Q,,,c,f,,.,.,.,,,.,L ,,Z,.,:,,4,.,ffq6w-,.f,, ,,,,. 1.w.fa.,v,..-,..:sf.3yW ,,:,, MM,,.,,..,,..,,,,.-.M.,..,s...n,..W.V r ,..!.,-sm.,fs1,.,..,.h.,,.,,,,,..,,.,,..e.,,,.,,,.,.,m:,.,.,e,.,.,.m.,,,.,.,.,... .-,.,a.f.,....W. 133 Appointed from Fifth District, ivnchigan l ' sax ' ::::-:iz-:gp,.,::a:2:1:::a:.i3ig4Egg-.gala'-: R.

He brought with him a varied supply of knowledge, which was X cheerfully devoted to the benefit of others. An instance of this was his connection with the Spanish Club. He also belonged to the Chemistry Club, which was an entirely different matter. At first it was locally supposed that he took no interest in femmes. True enough in the plural, but his engagement was announced on Furlough, and that was not the beginning. His continued popularity with the T. D. must be due to inherent, under- lying qualities, since he never boned quill by superficial means-high overshoes over white trousers as uniform for the O. D. was a characteristic innovation. His chief delights are huge eats, smuggled cigars, and chapel. This last may seem strange, but he probably spends the time in happy anticipation of the ceremony to be held there graduation day. Possibilities and bets to the contrary notwithstanding, he will join the Doughboys. His K. O. may have opinions concerning Second Lieuts and mat- rimony, but we have all confidence and best wishes for their happiness. .A ..,.... . - ff-' 1 W. ..-. .,.,:mv.,. .,.,... .em .,,s1mm-mm.. .

NE could write a long and instructive book about Van's adven- tures on the trail of the chevrons. As a yearling he had con- sistent hard luckg but by Furlough he had collected enough 'crecommendsn to fetch a sergeantcy. That gave a winter -of i- glory of sub-div, darkened occasionally by tooth powder stains. ' We know he dreamed of a flanker lifeute-nancy, for he spent most of May getting acquainted with the "A" Company sub-yearlings. It was only an uactingv after allg but he still did his best, and crawled plebes all night in his dreams unless Putnam suppressed him with a pillow. And then in Septem- ber-back to ranks. But the dawn succeeded that dark hour in proverbial fashion, and the chevrons have come to stay. You can tell by Van's expression as he does officers' center how earnestly he wishes that mother could see him now. Also, certain other folk-from Sandy Hook. Truly there are many who are haunted by red rabbits, and dream of a little cottage for two just in rear of the mortar batteryg but we wager that even Rosie Frank won't push a perambulator along the sea wall with half the native C.

A ERE he is-our first choice for the class All-Spoonoid Pink Tea team. Yes, "Joe Viner's boy" is the most eligible of ' ' ff 1 " us all. He commenced talking-for tenths-when we ' lu' were but mere plebes, and now-he talks for dinners, teas, "' " and other minor ofifenses. His full-dress coat is the most patient sufferer in the corps. It has served so valiantly that no Army and Navy Journal during our cadet days has been complete without a full account of our Joey's triumphs. 3 Joey hives all about girls-he says so himself. He only mixed things up badly once, and he will never do it again-the same way. He wrote that "You are the first girl I ever loved" story to two girls in the same school. Let us hastily draw the curtain. As a result Joey foreswore spooning-for one hop. He was awarded the pink "A" at the Indoor Meet. 1A-2I:Tf27?a.'"'1 1e'-'-Elvbuman' f f., -,,,mf,z,a7.wfAq..f...za...- - f ,...a,..Lf:::.1 ..,,.-aa.. .,.,. ...Mala My., .,., ,,, ,i,1mg..,a1a1a1-uL- fwmmfsm-fi-.yew ,.

We don't know Whether it is for this reason, but at any rate We would not be surprised to see Swash join the "Underhill Clubv soon. after graduation. Back in the time when we were sub-yearlings Wash got hived crawling a plebe. For this reason it was not to he expected that he should ever become one of the "Com's Ownv and dazzle the femmes with the gold braid. This has not been necessary in his case, however, judging from his daily mail from all parts of the country. In our first class camp Carl was one of the First men to turn out for polo- the sport of kings-and has been one of its most faithful adherents ever since. Needless to say, he is one of those who can see no other stripe than the yellow one. May he have his Wish, and not get gray-headed taking stables.

A IRST and foremost, Madame is a scientist. Like all great scien- ,E tists from the first Ptolemy to the "Betch" Jones, he does. not ig? limit himself. His many flights range from the high pinnacles i I of worldly wisdom to a complete comprehension of the feminine nature. And now comes our tale. Once upon a time there was a picture in his clothes-press. He wrote to her every day. But finally we saw him take down his C-oast Artillery Drill Regs, and copy whole paragraphs about some horrid old breech mechan- ism. He sent the letter. The picture disappeared. And now we wonder-- after all, can cold, hard, scientific thoughts be made to apply to things feminine? Madame has a hobby. It is photography. And we are all glad that he rides it much better than he does some of our riding hall offerings. The picf tures in this book well show the Madame's true standard. It is not difficult to discover just how much We owe him.

Almost any day, back in the plebe era, you could hear that rallying .V - digs' cry in the Area a few minutes before assembly,and see the Ser- pent, surrounded by a mob of awestruck Immortals, holding forth on the beauties of hyperbolic paraboloids, or the true inward- ' ness of the Twa Corbies. Snake is savvy, there's no denying it, an-d he holds the class record for Goat-herder. Nobody knows how many brands he has snatched from the burningg but it's certain that a good many of us would be represented in the list of absentees were it not for him. And if sometimes he's in such hot pursuit of the Worthy Col. Ingalls that he appears at drill with his leggings laced inside--what of that? As he says himself, he doesnit care about such doughboy teclmicalitiesg heis an Engineer. Anyone who ever assisted him to build a P. M. E. bridge is witness' to the truth of that.

Appointed from Fifth District, South Carolina "Jug, "B'iZZf' Acting Sergeant, Engineer Football Team. ,HBMM-v ILLIAM is a quiet lad who believes in keeping his eyes and ears open, but not in expressing ideas unless called upon. If you ever need any good, sound advice, go to William. There is very little which he does not know something about, and he is always ready to give you the benefit of his knowledge. However, be- neath this quiet, Quaker-like exterior that we are all familiar with is a quite Epicurean spirit, known only to those who know him well. Hopping, spoon- ing, and we must even say heart-breaking, are all included in VVilliam's cate- gory of achievements. No football or baseball game is complete without him in the stand, attended by a big box of candy and a femme-whose obvious opinion is that Mr. Young is a very nice young man, whom one can't help liking. One sees why the red stripe is the only stripe for Bill. mv-veggie-,s0.-fm'-w.:4.M-N1f.1.Qw- A-.waffwh-W,,.,,,..,,,......,-...he-f.f..,,. ,ffm1a.:..mfTwN-,-53-uw, -al.Q:xn..12 an-e...s ,. .-.v...,.,.t.,...,.-....es,,4,.....-...-.W?,-G..D.,-.,,..,...c.,.........w..Q.,.,,te,,-2 W" - - -U-mmi.,.,...:....,.., ..... ,.,c......, ....

You take ten rocks that look alike, And test them carefully, ' And iind that each does just the same, And wonder what they be. , Then finally in your despair You toss a nickel up- And the blame thing always does the same, Comes down the wrong side up. 147 If you take two pounds of carbon And to it add a bit Of that substance named nitre, b You'll be sure to make a hit. If one man in the chem lab Can break six tubes to-day, XN7hy does a bit of calcium Turn 'the darkness into day?

Can you, you cadet who are reading this, can you tell why? Do you think that we have been beaten by a better team, a superior team, a stronger set of men? Do you believe that we have been outclassed, outshovvn, outplayed? Do you feel that those Middies have had mo-re confidence in their team, more assurance in themselves, more real spirit way down deep than we have had? Do you, you who are reading this- do you? Ask yourself, be true within yourself, see what you have, what you have given, your share, your spirit, and then ask why we have been beaten. Can you tell why? VVe of 1913 cannot. a Football in the Corps is not easy. Wfe, who are in the Corps, we know. Every year men go out and Work, they give the best they have, they give it all with one final object in view and We have never seen that object accomplished. Today there is not a man in the Corps who has ever seen the Navy beaten in football. Surely there is some reason for this. There must be a reason, there is reason in all things. You who are here, who will be here, it is for you to find that reason, conquer that reason and make our team win. Do you under- stand? You have to make our team xvin. Spirit, yes, we have spirit. We have had spirit ever since we came to Wlest Point. Spirit is VVest Point, spirit has been here since VVest Point began. VVest Point is spirit. We cannot lay our defeats at its door.

Vile had it, we felt it, every man of us who has ever been on Franklin Field. It is part of usg it makes our Army team. But nevertheless we have lost. Last year we all went to Philadelphia gritting our teeth, gripping our hands, thinking but one thought, 'lYou've got to win." Every man of us was willing to give all he had, every bit of him, to aid those men who were the Army team. They were the best we had and they were Worthy. VVe saw them iightg we fought with them. VVe were desperate, so were they. They gave their best, We gave ours. VVhat was the result? i g During the game, between the halves, some people near the Corps implored us to sing, to yell, to do anything to drown out that liendish gleefulness that was slapping our faces from the Middy stands. But We did not want to sing, We did not want to yellg We did not want to wave pennants. VX7e wanted to win. Every man of us only clamped his jaws harder and muttered to himself, "You've got to win." XVe were there with but one purpose-to Winf Did We win? 161 ' Ilalgi gtil ll f " Sl! , -P , ,,l, .. ,.,f, Q. ,. ..... .. V... . .-,,.

It is the same spirit that sent the men who have gone out of here before us to do what they have done. VVe have that spirit still, their spirit, yet are we not a little too prone to accept it as a matter of course? Do we, as cadets, do as much as they did as cadets? We wonder. Vlfere we going out on a long campaign, a real fight of might, as they have done before us, then we would win. It would be the same, we would have to win. If nothing else, our spirit would win for us. That we have been taught, that we have had left to us, that is ours, something that we will always keep. That feeling of "can,t losel' would take us any place, anywhere, any time. That knowledge that nothing is worth while after defeat would urge us and we would win. Wfe could not lose. But football is different. Football is not life and death. Football is a sport. Sport is chance. And chance can never be courted with other bait than chance. Victory, in main, seems chance. Then why not, you who are going to be here, why not play the game with that viewpoint? VVhy make it more serious than a religion? Wfhy take it out of its category? VVhy not leave it a sport? Then, as a sport play the game for all that it is worth. We of 1913 leave you that. N, g m ,-lla 162 , w1F5YW'ff?"'f"27, ' XS 12, -I ,f : AR, ws 1, 5. .,, . .

N A 4 and can L ' - ehietn ut the Seasun ITH the realization of the main object of an Army football season, the natural inference would be that the past one was a failure. Although unsuccessful in a sense it must be remembered that both teams cannot win, and that a de- feated team is still successful if it can accept that reverse quietly and fairly, feel that they have put their hardest efforts into the development of the best team possible. In this way they have contributed their share towards more fully establishing the great game -of football as a clean and manly sport. It is indeed hard for anyone other than those closely connected with football at the Academy to understand the difficulties encountered in main- taining a football team which will successfully compete with the largest universities in the country. Although all the physi- f:wf.-- ' V cal exertion necessary in modern football is easily met, still the mental concentration and attention, which is just as necessary a factor, is here pre- vented to a degree because of our other more im- portant considerations, and certainly too great credit cannot be given the football men of the past year for the earnest efforts for the advancement of our success in that game. The graduation of 1912 left the center, one A 1: guard, one tackle, and three backfield positions open. Practice began in earnest on the first Saturday in September and an exceedingly large squad turned out. The usual division into the main and Cullum Hall squads soon followed. The first game of the season with Stevens on October 5th, resulted in an easy victory by a score of 27-O. The outcome pointed to a strong baclcheld and plenty of competition for the vacant positions. Prichard's steady and effective work reassured us in regard to the quarterback posi- tion. Many substitutions were made throughout the game. Neither Keyes nor Hoge were in shape to play on account of injuries. On October 12th Rutgers gave us a better game than was Both teams used the forward pass successfully a number of times. The team was still without the services of Keyes, while Eisenhower was rapidly developing into a strong back. Our goal line was endangered twice, once during the second and again during the fourth period, when Rutgers had the ball on our ten-yard line. ln both cases we obtained the ball on forward passes and soon rushed it out of danger. The ends worked well during the game and both Hobbs and Prichard showed much abil- ity carrying the ball. Rowley played a steady, con- sistent game and was dehnitely decided upon as Devore's running mate. The next Saturday Yale made our next big expected. f 15411.- ey-35-'-j. , .3951-j. -. - , 3' 171 ' :f -'9:-:3,..z- I Q f:?E:f'6?? M iv a f 7 game of the season. The held was wet and a little soft because of a diiza- ling rain all morning. Devore was injured during the week and his in- ability to take part in the game was an irreparable loss. Keyes had gotten back into the game by this time, however, and played his usual spectacular game. Yaleys powerful offense was mainly built about Flynn, who was 166 llalit zllilll t:1.wswffr12 - ' " V , , - -' 3 iz EEE - .V R' ' 4 'En'- -:V 252121. 1 " .

The hrst period was fairly even, ending with the ball on our ten-yard line. However, at the opening of the second period, three gains by Spalding, Flynn and Philbin carried the ball over for their one and only touchdown. Here especially was Captain Devore's loss felt. The remaining part of the period was char- acterized by spectacular runs by Keyes and Flynn. ln the third period with the ball in our possession on Yale's 30-yard line, we seemed to be on the way to a touchdown, but our hopes were killed by an unsuccessful forward pass. Towards the close of the fourth period our team seemed to fall into its stride, carrying the ball down the Held for fifty yards by straight line plunging, only to lose the ball after a hfteen-yard penalty. The game ended with the ball in our possession in Yale's territory. The game with Colgate, October 25th, proved a good, fast, spectacular contest. The formations of the visitors in the first period were almost invincible and their team, encouraged by a gain of thirty-Eve yards on a forward pass, crossed our goal line after less than six minutes of play. But in the second period we got together and carried the ball the length of the field in twenty-two plays, Keyes doing most of the ground- gaining. At no time after the hrst period was the outcome of the game in doubt. Eisenhower, in the fourth period, could not be stopped. Prichard was showing wonderful form, while our ends worked perfectly. Huntington, of Colgate, played a fast, pretty game. V The game November 2nd, with Holy Cross, was cancelled because of the death of Vice-President Sherman. The Carlisle Indians on November 9th gave us the worst defeat we have had in vears. Although we were frst to score, that score coming early in the second period, ,it was soon 167 afar:-:.x-ff-mwsf .1 . E- ..-,. ,. 1' .-ff' -. sg ,ggi it - Mm- wf' V' P "A' . , , , , C J!

Their interference was perfect and the running of Thorpe was by far the most wonderful and spectacular ever seen on our held. The game finally ended with a score of 27-6 against us. In the Tufts game on November 16th the team did not seem to have recovered from the Indian defeat and the game was a disappointment. Tufts scored lirst on a fumbled punt by Pri- chard. They used successfully a shift play which was puzzling. Keyes and Hobbs were the mainstays of our offense. Our two touchdowns and a lield of 15-6. In this game to get back into shape was also greatly felt. Our last game of the season here with Syracuse on Novem- ber 23rd ended with a victory of 23-7 for us. The team's general work was almost faultless, the plays being executed with great speed and precision. Their only score resulted from a fumble by Lanphier of a punt. Keyes was the particular star, scoring the first seventeen points, his toe gaining live of them. goal by Keyes resulted in a Final score Eisenhower was hurt and was unable the rest of the season.

To us victory seemed certain until the last period. Football experts are of the opinion that the game was -too conservative on the part of both teams, but this invariably is the case, due to the intense feeling of both Academies and their adherents over the outcome of the game' As to how evenly matched the two teams were. there follows an exact account of the game in detail. 168 , fa-' W -MQ x '..l:: , ..f:"' 5-1. - 1 . f X ,git if 'sw' 'fp' f if ..,, .

Ib its "ix 2 1' HERE are three distinct parts to the fighting machine which we send latter part of November each year, first in im- portance is the team itself, sec- ond, the corps, and third, the coaches. Of the team we need to speak little, for who is there of us who does not follow its every move, who does not hold its very existence to be one of the most cherished parts of our daily life? VVe know our team and a study of it would be but a review of that knowledge, possessed by us all, of its deeds and achieve- ments. Neither does the corps it- self admit of discussion here. True, each man has his own ideas as to the corps' rela-tion to that fighting machine, but taken collectively these ideas can be only as one. Our part is to stand by to support, to instil into each man of that chosen eleven a spirit of courage that cannot be defeated. VVith the corps and the team we are familiar. Therefore, let us analyze the coaching system. Football has, as its foundation, certain elements. These ele- ments are of a permanent nature and undergo little change. Upon them is built the system of intricate and indiv- idual plays, changeable in their nature. each of which is developed for some one purpose. Every big university eleven has a different style of attack for each important game of its schedule and as a result of this there is developed a team with a thor- ough knowledge of all types of play. WVe see in their at- tack much versatility, but is it this varied action of scat- tered, brilliant, and individual plays which wins, or those based upon the application of rudimentary prin- ciples? Most authorities say the latter, and point to Yale and Harvard for reference, Big games, they say, are W-on by straight football. Keeping this in mind let us consider our plan. Vtfhen the season begins early in the Fall we have but one purpose. We play through a long schedule, meet- ing teams of varying strength. But it is not the last day of the football season that we gain or lose everything. If we defeat the Navy on- that day the season is gloriously successful. If we lose, no matter what may 174s until to Philadelphia the Illi k ffllil l p p .. . V llf, 'Q . . .. ...V 1 . 4. 2-a utumn ' . -L, c12, -- - ' 'K ' we 1 1'- f ? er r - ."

Their's is a business proposition- not of a ye'ar's duration-but a hght continuous. If they can devise a system whereby our team can win the majority of games from the Navy, not this year's game alone or next, but more than half -then that system is the one we are after. And it was upon this system that we launched out last fall. Three months were spent in the essential elements of the game and straight football was played. Then came November 28th. VVell, we didn't win and to us, of 1913, the defeat came as the last of four years of stinging bitterness. But the hgh-t we fought was the right kind and every tribute is due to those who planned it-the coaches. They brought out all there was i-n the team. We have seen established the new football policy of VVest Point. Fate was unkind to the hrst fruits of its adoption and some of our hopes have been blasted accordingly. But let us never give it up. It is the system that will win ' in the long run a-nd we must keep it. Our conihdence in future success is due to the unfaltering efforts and unselfish devotion of those who established it. And backed by the loyal support of the corps it cannot fail us. 'lm lNlhat is your answer? fam-2 -9f'7 The standing of fa team in the athletic World is conditioned upon so many and so compli- cated prerequisites that it would be an exag- geration to say that any one individual is responsible for that -team's prestige. But if one thing is greatly essential in the attain- ment of victories, it is the possession of a good trainer. ln Harry Tuthill we have had an invaluable asset. He has served us well and we feel a sincere gratitude for his loyalty and hard work. Because he is a great trainerg because he has improved the spirit among usg and -because we like him as ta neighbor and a man, we sincerely hope that he will return to us again this Fall, 175 f d' .Q-aeeT'fQ riS3fiA Qwfgfgp, A "1 1 A .Vw , .

The 1911 Surles and McNeal, were at Strang's disposal, besides aible subs unusually large class from which to pick. While it was by no means certain that the Veterans would be able to keep their positions, it was impossible to suppose that the record of the team, which had chalked up a victory over the Navy the year before, would not at least be equaled. VVith the usual indoor and early outdoor work, the squad was Finally picked. In addition, a new lield was built for a second squad, and a short schedule with strong prep school teams was prepared. In this way practice was furnished to a larger number than ever before. The opening game found us represented by Merrililat in the box, backed by the same combination that had so handily sunk the Navy in 1911. But Lafayette proved too much for us, winning rather easily by 6-4, principally due to our wierd fielding and the strong work of Pager on the mound. Merrilla-t piitc-hed credlitably, but was a l-ittle unsteady when the bases were occupied. In the next game we were badly beaten by Dartmouth, showing a decided need of practice in every department. The team gathered but one hit off Hallettls delivery-an infield scratch hit-and made seven errors behind Devore. Our third straight defeat was suffered at the hands of Bucknell, 7-1, in a poor game. Davenport's hand was injured, which kept him out for the remainder of the season, Milburn taking his place behind the bat, uld be one of team, except titutes and an X , fm , f 7 x ,.. fb .L Uk is il, .sf 5. r , 5. , . , 0 ' A Xm- X T.. 4" iii K'-gif! , Q..

The following Saturday Hyatt went in against Columbia, with the expected ,, result, The Blue and 'White were helpless, nine of them whining in their ' efforts to connect. The Army batted around in the first inning, getting five runs off Ulrich on singles by Wlhiteside, Harrison, Sadtler, and Hyatt, together with two passes and an error. After that no runs were chalked up until the seventh, when two singles and two errors gave us another brace of runs. Columbia's only run came in the ninth inning, as a result of XVhiteside's disastrous peg, far over Cook's head. The game with Norwich University was poor, both teams being equally at fault. VVe hnally won out, 8-4, due more to their poor than to our good baseball. Aside from the base-running of Ummsell, the visitors' back-stop, who pil- fered four bases, and Merillat's steady pitching in the face of wretched support, the game was featureless. After six straight victories, we were finally downed by Penn State, 5-2. This team was by far the best seen on our 'field during the season, dis- playing particular ability in sol- ving Hyatt's curves. The Army played an indifferent game, wabbling at critical stages and showing themselves totally unable to hit the offerings of VVardwell.

Three pitchers were hammered by the Army hitters, who had on their batting togs. 'Merillat pitched air- tight ball, and an error gave Michigan their only tallies. Fordham, with the A A usual brass-band ac- companiment, furnished the attraction 'on the Saturday preceding the Navy game. The team was in line form, playing perhaps their best game of the season. The hitting, while not heavy, was timely, tive of our six runs being earned. Hyatt twirled one of his best games, allowing three hits and fanning six Fordhamites, while he received nne support from the entire team. The Unlion game, three days after this, was stopped by rain in the second inning, the visi-tors leading 2-0. The annual Seventh Regiment game was won 11-1. As a ball game it was nix, the only feature being Ulloa's near-home-run. Altogether at this stage, vvithithe Middy contest but two days off, the outlook could not have been better. The team was hitting well, and the helding, while it 45 5. EK! lib r N. X 2 f vi N - XXX? s . i fri fl F ii could never be called major league stuff, was still very good, particularly when Hyatt was in the box. Hyatt had lost but one game, and that to the Penn State ag- gregation, so it was perhaps pardonable that the Corps should feel pretty conhdent as to the result of the Big Game. Elsewhere it will be found how this conh- dence was rewarded. The closing games will be but hurriedly reviewed- for who wants to read about them, anyhow, with the Navy game so recently Won? Colgate was beaten 7-6, in a see-saw game which was not decided until Wliite- side's double in the ninth drove in Ulloa and Anderson. The season was closed with a 7-0 victory over Syracuse. It was a iitting hnale for a successful season. VVhen Hyatt, Ulloa, Cook, Harrison, Wfhiteside, Anderson, Faymonville, Riley and Schneider gave their "Never Again," the Corps wished them God-speedy each class hoping that when its last season ended, they might be able to point to an athletic record such as that boasted by 1912. 180 If , Mg? I i 4 r Y X ff X X Tait , NAVY GAME AKE it four straight" was the slogan of the Corps as the squad, led by our own Sammy, boarded the train for Annapolis town. Confidence was predominant and one could hardly imag- Q ine the Middies taking sufficient liberty with Hya'tt's benders to dsl ,Q-"' cause us much anxiety. But this is exactly what did happeng Hyatt, with nothing but a prayer, as he put it, ran into a tornado which threatened to put us on the little end. Despite the sav- ! g age hitting of the Middies, aided and abetted at times by our own uncertain fielding, Bob pitched a hard nine innlngs and gamely held QH the Sluggers long enough to let us make it another victory, his fourth and last. Too much credit cannot be given to him, but then, too, the entire squad deservefs a great deal of credit. It takes an army-team to fight the way that team fought, there in the enemy's territory, with the Navy three runs in the lead and jubilant. At first unable to touch Seiber-t's offerings, they battled valiantly with a fierce desperation throughout the game and in the face of apparent disaster wrested victory from their brother rivals in the last two innings. They had won through superior knowledge of baseball, cool judgment and pluck. As to how it happened-this from the scorer: In the first inning, the Army went out on three weak infield taps. The Navy started strong, Fisher walking with two down and scoring on Hall's double 'to right center. Hall also counted when Lyman let one through him at the plate. VVith a two- run lead, the Middies were wild and upon seeing both the Army stick artists. Harrison and Mrerillat fly out to Osborn, their joy knew no bounds. However, Doc. Cook drew a pass and startled the natives by s-tealing second and third. Sradtler struck out. Right here the Navy increased its lead to three. Abbott singled and went to third on Vaiden's line drive through Whitefsticle. Cochran grounded to Sadtler, who forced Vaiden at second, Abbott scoring on the play. Cook and Sadtler caught Cochran between the bags and Merillat scooped up Seibert's near bingle and threw him out at first, retiring the side. Then followed the third. Hyatt, the first up, drew a pass, but the next three batters were unable to drive him home. The Middies were easy for Bob in this frame, going out in quick order. In the latter half of the inning the Army broke into the run column. With two down and the bases empty, Merillat smashed a terrific homer to left. Cook, however, made the third out, by fanning. For the Navy, Abbott got on first on an error by 'VVhiteside, but took undue liberties with Lymanls whip, and was caught on the road to second. In the next, the Army died peace- fully, in 1-2-3 order and .the Middies, although placing two on base with no one down, passed likewise, 'being unable to deliver the necessary safety. Once more, with the bases empty, an Armybats- man, Lyman by name, collided' with one of Seibert's choice curves 'and pounded it out of the lot.

Again the Navy proved easy, and the lucky seventh rolled round, leaving us both smeared with white wash. However, the hreworks were soon to com-mence, and the eighth opened with both aggregations making bids for honors. The Army went to bat in this inning with the score 3-2 against tihem. Ulloa, in an effort to fatten that .200 bratiting average, clouted a long drive to left 'center that took him to nrst. Lyman promptly hunted and beat the throw, Ulloa sliding into third on schedule. The Hawaiian advanced to second, and when Anderson shot one to right, the foreign legation came home. Add two. VV'hiteside dumped the next toward third and easily reached the base, Anderson taking third. But the Swede was caught napping and went to the bench. In the meantime Whiteside pilfered second. Harrison then selected what seemed to be good, and hoi-sated to deep center, scoring 'VVhi-te'si-de. He was n-ot held at third, however, and was easily retired at the plate on a pretty relay, Osborn to Seibert to Cochran. Merillat lined out to Adams, ending our frame, and leaving the score 5-3 in our favor. But the Middies had a few more tricks in their basket and these they proceeded to turn l-oose. After Seibert had grounded to Merillat and Osborn had fanned, Adams gathered a safety on a smash past Wliiteside, and Fisher scored him on a triple to right. Hall dropped a bingle just over second, which sent Fisher in with the tying run. Lyman then threw away the ball in attempting to get Glover at hrst and the Navy counted one ahead when Hall crossed. Abbott, the next man, en-ded the fracas with a Hy to Anderson. At the beginning of the ninth, Cook started out in an impressive manner. It was our last chance and we had to make good. The doctor drove a one-sacker over the Navy infield and Sadtler helped with a bunt in front of the plate which took him to hrst. Hyatt came through with a hit and Cook tallied, leaving Sadtler one base behind. Then Hyatt was caught, but Ulloa for the second time delivered, and sent Sadtler home on a scorcher to center. Lyman reached first on Adams bobble, and with Ulloa on third, immediately took second. Anderson drew a pass from the sinking Seibert, but VVhites+ide forced him at second, Adams to Abbott. Ulloa came in on this play. Htarrison died on a fly to left. With the score 8-6 against them, the Middies made their last stand for the game that looked so easily cinched in the early innings. After Vaiden had been -thrown out by Whiiteside, Cochran singled. Vinson, as a pinch-hitter for Seibert, followed suit, placing Cochran on third, from where he galloped home on Osborne's sacrifice fly to right.

An out- door meet consists of common, everyday saw-bucks called hur- dles Chighbrow effectj, a lot of lime spread in stra-ight lines all over very pretty green turf, and some very im- pressive badges with men to Wear them. In collected groups these men hold 1 Watches and strained facial expressions. l Nearby breathes a two-legged individual who carries a long, funnel shaped voice exerciser. That voice cultivator is a most peculiar sort of instrument of tor- ture. lt needs continual exercise. lt works so loud and persistently that an 1 interested bystander spends most of his time wondering what Big Lungs is talking about. Some of the main accessories of an outdoor meet are the shot, the hammer, the discus and the tape. The shot is a round ball that is jusit exactly what anyone would imagine a shot should be. lt is lead and has to be pushed. lt commences its flight from a circle an-d for that reason is a source of endless delight. A hammer is a shot. on the end of a wire. just Why it was put on the end of a wire has delied stern thinkers for many years. Perhapsthe inventor has merely been trying to string us. However, its main use seems to be a heaven-sent missile that tries to deal out promis- cuously tickets to that land of faraway. Really, a careful onlooker at an outdoor meet spends most of his time with a wary eye cocked skyward so that he may forego the bores of leaden b-alls. The discus serve-s the same purpose, from the standpoint of the observer, as the shot and the hamimer. lt is something to be dodged when some young Hercules yells "Look out." Yes, look out-and in that way again have a look in. Different, however, from all these is the tape. A tape is a piece of string whose sole object in being is to be broken. But etiquette requires that tapes be broken only Zhu.. J. ,V,,, 185 .:,, Q..:,A ...T ,,,. ,.:.A., , . A.A,, .H Af 1 'tlii attllssl l if E55 A -,.,, - -. My - 1, ' ?

To properly break a tape, the breaker must be gasping for breath, have arms outstretched dramatically toward the calm azul and then with one wild leap fall into the blankets of Waiting worshippers. In that way tape-breaking is very effective. . The other main essentials of an outdoor meet are observers. There could not be a meet without them. NVhat would be the fun if there were not some people who always got in the way just when something important was about to happen? If those people did not get in the wrong places there Would be nothing for the others to talk about. After the observers come the participants.

VVhen not doing something they sling blankets over their shoulders, but when taking part in an event they step forth bathed in the smiles of the welcom- ing onlookers and clothed in short.

' Combining as it does agility and speed it is a valuaible member to the kingdom of sports in most branches of which, too much emphasis is placed on brute strength. For several years broadsword has been gaining in popularity over its cousin, fencing, and now with the abolition of the inter-collegiate status of the latter, broadsword threatens -to displace it from the first rank of minor sports. Each class now has its squad which works earnestly under the able direction of Monsieur Vauthier. In the indoor meet the rinal bouts of the inter-class 'tourney are fenced off. As the winning adds to the total of the successful class these bouts are spirited and show the result of careful work. In the 1912 meet some excellent bouts were decided by the smallest of margins. Each of the three upper classes had a team of three men, each man taking part in six bouts. The individual championship narrowed down to a tie between Arnold, ,12, and Duvall, '13, while the three classes were closely bunched in the final standing. 1912 won with 1913 and 1914 fighting it out to the last bout for second place. The latter won. Arnold and Duvall met in the indoor meet to break their tie and after a hard fight the decision was given to Arnold. The event was greatly enjoyed by all and in the future it is hoped that the finals will be saved until the meet so that all may see them. ' An interesting feature in this work has developed in the contests between a man armed with the rifle and bayonet and one with the broadsword. Each has its advocates and many bouts took place. As yet neither has shown a superiority over the other. At any rate, it is a question ad- mitting of much argument tht some day may be satisfactorily settled. 21 .- r '- sz E E ,e-::::::1f,Ji 1: .i -r et ails I -,AA. . .,.. 'Z .

The number of weight grades was reduced to three, the limiting weights being 140 and 160 pounds. In the preliminary championship, begun in December, the represen'tatives of each class wrestled among themselves: so that at the beginning of the semi-iinals it was planned that each class would have a team of three men-one for each weight. The final bouts were to o,c-cur as events of the Indoor Meet, having the same status as broadsword. The results of only part ol the pre- liminaries were known when the Howiftzer went to press. The squad has been throughout the season the largest for many years, maintain- ing an average of forty. The iirst class contingent was weakened by the loss of Gibson and Toohey, but all classes had an excellent representationg especially the fourth class, which turned out with a most commendable enthusiasm. Witli such material, and with the assistance of Mr. jenkins-undoubtedly the linest coach in the country-there seems no reason why we should not do creditable work with outside teams, if bouts with these could be arranged. Such a series of bouts would do much to increase the interest felt in the sp-ort by both the squad and the Corps. 189 - T.

It has not yet been necessary to pad the ceiling. No one in the Corps has such high aspirations. The shelves of the boxing room are covered with gloves. Judging from some reputaftions, "His punch is an awful kick,'i one would be apt to wonder why they are not called shoes. A horse certainly does not kick with a glove. Heretiofore our experience in :the -ant has been -that a punch for a punch is not Worth anything. We have studied it from a standpoint of hit and get away while the instructor is watching and spend the rest of the time talking about less mournful subjects. This year changed the whole department. I-t has now been established upon purely academic principles. Even reviews and examinations are in its curri- culum. The course is very interesting. The reviews are oral. The recitations are conducted with two cadets in the center of a ring of easily amused cadets. The instructor is also in the ring. The 'bouts are accompanied by such encouragement as "You couldn't punch a hole in a pound of butter," and soothing gurgles frofm the ring of admirers. The examinations are practically the same as the review-S. Only, there is a lone cadet in the ring with the instructor. This time the bout continues. The cadet is the butter that is to be the recipient for the whole.

So you urge your little pony more, faster, faster, faster. And again you hit the ball. Now you see the goal posts. just one more stroke and you will make it. You talk to your pony, you press him a little harder, you must make it. The ball is there, poised on a piece of turf, it seems to wait for you. You grip your mallet, it is raised for the stroke, you lean forward and then-you swing. But something is wrong, you cannot understand, there was no answering crack to your swing. Your pony has long since passed the ball, You look back as you try to turn and see some one send the elusive white spot in the opposite direc- tion. It is now beyond the center of the held and you are madly gal- loping after the play. Your work was for nothing, the ball has gone. But there is still left the chase. Truly, it is sport. Somewhere, some- time, somehow back in the very, very dark ages some happy mind conceived of the game of polo. ln those days they must have played it with broken lances for mallets and dis- carded helmets for balls. But they played the game. It has come down to us and we play the game. The sport was there and the sport is here. And it is sport. So there is ' 191 - 1513 w llall If 'gill in in n .

A glance over the record, where it will be noticed that among our victims were Princeton, Rochester, St. Lawrence, Pennsylvania, Swathmore and VVesleyan, will convince the skeptics that the above claim has at least some foundation in fact. Of our losses, two in number, one was to Union, who defeated us in an extra period by one point. XfVhile giving full credit to Union, it might not be amiss to men-tion the fact that too much turkey-trotting and other va- rieties of the barn-yard dances at the hop the evening before, notic- ably put a damper on the pepper of our team. Wfe are not try- ing to crawl, but because of the statement at the beginning of this article some explanation is needed to account for this defeat. The other has no bearing on the matter in any way. Besides being suffered at -the hands of the Crescent Athletic Club, not a college, the defeat occurred during the Christmas holidays when the team had other troubles on its hands for the time being. But to come back to earth, we had quite an acceptable season. The bunch turned out in goodly numbers to the games, the pink teas on the post were suspended for the afternoon-a necessity. way we feel by the way, as Sutton was on the team-and the band nobly Hddled away between times, while the spoonoids trotted a bit in the halls. All in all, the season has been one to look back upon with pleasure. Manager Earl Canady, cadet private first class, presented one of the best schedules in recent years. All of our opponents were worthy of our metitle and the games were exciting enough to satisfy even the most critical. But more of this anon. The out- look for the season could not have been brighter. By graduation, Arnold left a hole difficult to nll, but with such men as Boye, Howell and Hobbs to choose from, it did seem improbable that the position would be ably taken care of. Besides Lieut. Higley, Lieuts, Devers and Rice turned out and helped the team along, and it is to their untiring efforts that a large share of our success is due. By developing a system of team play which is seldom equaled and never surpassed, they gave us a world-beater despite the fact that as a scoring machine we were undoubtedly weak. The Corps owes much to the ability and generosity of these of- ncers. . The season opened with a practice ganie,',played against the 195 5 fiivwg I 5. 'gg mv.: '+L , 5 3 - .

Although the team work was rough in spots we won handily, 35-15. MacTaggart played a star game, landing nine double deckers from the floor. The next attraction was St. Lawrence, reputed to be one of the strongest teams in the country. After a hard fight featured by the all-around work of Roberts and Van Vliet, we won by a single point, 23-22. The team played gild-edged ball and ex- hibited much improvement over the previous game. After three easy victories over Pennsylvania, Manhattan and Princeton we . .. - met the fast traveling quintette from Wesleyan, that fully lived ,,, 5 ,,,1- t up to the reputation that had preceded it. A bitter struggle '51, ensued in which the score was tied several times. lfVe P nosed them out in the last few minutes of play on sen- sational baskets by Roberts and Sutton. In this game the work of the entire team was excellent and the game was one of the best of the season. 4..,l,V , I JJ., Our old basketball rival, Swarthmore, with four consecutive victories over us, proved to be rather easy, al- though the score makes the game appear close. Van Vliet found the basket in this game, caging five, and this, together with the de- fensive work of Howell, featured an otherwise slow game. The next game, with Colgate, was also easily won, although, as in other games, we failed to roll up a large score. Following Colgate we met Fordham, who was totally unable to cope with the Army. Roberts, Sutton and Van Vliet dropped goals from all angles and Hobbs made his famous carom shot which, he says, was intentional. Next we had one of the most enjoyable games of the season from our point of view. Rochester, after leading 10-9 in the first half, was completely snowed under by the burst of speed shown by the Army in the second period. Roberts dropped in eight goals during the afternoon, more than the whole Rochester team procured. Four of these came in the first few minutes of the second stanza and were little short of marvelous. Vlfe will pass hurriedly over the Union game. It suffices to say that we lost after a hard struggle to a fine team. The final game was played March 1 against New York University. As was expected, it was not a difficult one, although, by a game rally in the closing half, they threw us a large-sized score. And thus the season ended, a circumstance which would have caused weep- ing and gnashing of teeth except for the cheering thought that June was only ninety days away. All hail to the team! It was the best team in the country. Van Vliet, Roberts and Sutton pass on, but under the guidance of NacTaggart the chances for a repetition of our excellent season are fairly bright. Wfith MacTaggart, Boye and Howell as a nucleus and with such substitutes as Hobbs. Wfaldron and Hibbs there is every reason to believe that they will deliver the goods. In closing it has always been the custom to express the same thought, year after year-so why not here-why not zgNavy game? 1 6 li a i il Q . -rg :g ag ' l 3' ' 6 , G gg 'f' 'lm 1' J ll 1'-F 'il l gl Ml I I ' U" ll ii 5 till 1 ' A , my "If tiff . 9 1 . ll tl J OCKEY here at -W'est Point has always been more C M or less uncertain on account of the fact that we Q' have no rmk.

Although there was a schedule of nineteen games from January 2 until March 1, it was impossible to play any games until February-8 on account of the lack of ice. However, of the SIX +l-li' games that we were able to play, the Army won live. i f ' This certainly speaks well for the team and the coach- fg?' f - , , ing of Lieut. Gordon, H,..5,, ff, .lit if 3 , At the beginning of the season thirty signed up '-" X to try for the team. From these a squad of twenty men N ' sf .A ' '52 .CQ was picked. From last year's team we had four veterans ' ""' 'H' "" ' ltr as well as two other men who had been in a number of I - MEGW1 """'N""" games as substitutes. The work of Viner and Royce A was consistently good throughout the season, these two X men constituting our principal scoring machine. St1'ong's " Q 1 work at goal was such that we believe that the teams , V ' 1. ' who play the Army next year will have at hard time V , . getting the puck past him. A ' In the opening game with the Massachusetts Insti- tute of Technology the Army suffered its only defeat - by a score of 5-0. This was primarily due to the fact . that we played the game wi-thiout any practice and that our opponents ranked as one of the fastest teams in the East. The game with Amherst, a week later, was prob- - ably the best of the season in spite of the soft ice. It resulted in a 1-0 victory for the 197 A f5'75T""f'?'f. 4 .

HENRX' BARLOW CHEADLE, Secretary and Treasurer E ARE told that the Dialectic Society, since its organization early in the history of the Academy, has undergone a radical change in char- acter. It was founded in the twenties, as a literary society with a limited membershipg developed into a Corps organization, died out just before the Civil War, wars revived, and finally developed into an organization which became an impontant faotor in the life of the Corps. Wit-h the establishment, however, of that short-lived institution, the First Classmen's Club, many of its functions were taken away, and it became what we find it to-day. Although the First Classmen's Club passed away in the flower of its youth, the Dialectic has never resumed its former character. But the Dialectic of to-day-aiside from furnishing a convenient reading-room for men living in North Barracks, a place for the harmless pastimes of checkers and dominoes, and a rather out-of-tune piano to whose accompaniment our cadet vocal enthusiasts exercise their voices-fulhlls an important mission. This is its annual production of the Hundredth Night Play. The men elected each year as Dialectic Society ofhcers are chosen for their musical, histrionic and executive ability as shown in previous productions of this play. lfVe are particularly fortunate this year in having such men as Crittenberger, Cheadle and Palmer, whose previous experience htted them so well for the planning of the play and the organization of the cast, chorus and staff. 'The Wfar Cry," an illustrated account of which is found elsewhere in this book, was presented in the afternoon and evening of February 22, and without a doubt was the best of its kind that 1913 has ever witnessed. VVe had hopes, however, that the Corps would refrain this year from its annual trip. The authors of every Hundredth Night play that our class has ever seen have always resorted to this subterfuge for a change of scene. It seems that this is the only plan available: and the trip to Mexico, this year, was particularly apt and clever. However, the man who invents another scheme for securing a variation -of scenic effects will make a name for himself, and earn the everlasting gratitude of the Corps. 9208 lg I 9 1 M' A 'L ii ' . . . 4 ,EX ,X 4 ' Y., HE purpose of the Y. M. C. A. is to develop virile Christian men and to promote in the Corps right speaking, right thinking and right acting. The business of the Y. M. C. A. is to serve, to help, and to attend tothe needs of the men of the Corps in every way possible. Practically this is conhned to holding regular and special meetings, to obtaining outside speakers, to maintaining a recreation room, which is equipped with a phonograph, a piano and reading matter, to furnishing most of the teachers for the Cadet Chapel Sunday-school, and to promoting Bible study in the Corps. In order to be suc- cessful, in our case, any effort to serve must be along one or more of the above lines. As an organized institution, the Y. M. C. A. at Vtfest Point is only thirty-three years old. At present, active and associate, the membership comprises nearly the whole corps. The past year efforts were made to have a large number of outside speakers at the meeting-officers, Y. M. C. A. secretaries, and in general persons other than cadets, this in order to give the men some idea about matters of national or universal interest which the average cadet would rarely obtain in any other way. This plan also helped to bring the men into contact with outside forces and served to broaden and develop them on more than religious lines alone. The scheme has been followed with good results. During the summer encampment, in addition to the regular meetings in the Y. M. C. A. Hall, special ones were often held under the trees near camp. These were usually very well attended and fully justified our expectations. This summer a delegation of ten men was sent to the Students' Northheld Con- ference at East Northfield, Mass. Unfortunately, the cadets of the delegation were only able to be present during the last four days of the conference, the benefits derived from their visit being correspondingly decreased. Nearly one thousand students attended, coming from all over the world, although mainly from Canada and the eastern part of the United States. As a broadening influence along religious lines the conference was wonderful. The association at the mass meetings ,with suchspeakers as Iohn R. Mott, Robert E. Speer, C. D. Hurrey, etc., and with the leaders of the different delegations all picked men, taken from all over the world, exerted an influence over the students that anyone who has not attended such a conference will find it hard to realize. The delegation was particularly struck by the fine type of the students attending and by their enthusiasm, manliness and earnestness. Vtfith the autumn came the course of Bible study, "The Harmony of the Gospels" being the text-book followed. There were thirty Bible classes with a total enrollment of two hundred men. We here wish to thank Mr. F. H. Andrews and Lieutenants McKell, Greene, Westoifer and McLachlan for their continued interest and coopera- tion in the work. Without the last four men to help with the Bible study it would have been nearly impossible to have accomplished anything.

No account of the Christian work in the Corps would be complete Without a men- tion of Miss Anna B. Nllarner. On Constitution Island, during the warm weather, and in Highland Falls, during the cold, she holds a Bible class each Sunday afternoon for such cadets as care to go. A cadet who graduates without having gone to see Miss VVarner on a Sunday afternoon has missed one of the greatest opportunities WVest Point has to offer. Patient. loyal, hopeful, cheerful, she is at once the truest, most untiring, most self-sacrihcing friend the Corps has. many years to come! ---10 ,3 'I , 4692 "' 1' mx 5' , E 'K f' f X .-STK-.'..: g . . fy.-, I ' ,-Q - .

ASBROUCK! lt broke upon us early one morning last june. We have been wondering ever since if the break was in our favor. Of course, June is a nice month and all that, but moving to camp is very nearly as exciting as , ' ' holding one's hands for grandmother's yarn. But to get to Xu ' , camp-that is why we moved. It was picturesque-the I '- p moving. ' L Army wagons were there to carry over our bedding, , accessories and boodle. The latter was not carried offi- NL,-, , cially, but it was carried. Somehow boodle does not find -' Q Q " itself in the same class with bedding. It is certainly a very I Ng l HQ X 1 are gp ge e ' 1' ' 1 I L- " ' peculiar coincidence that put it there. That it was there can- not be denied. Else how came all those delightful feasts in which most of the grease products distributed themselves all over our tent floors? Of course the grease spots were there. The records show it. It was nourish- " ing-the moving. What a sight it was! It must have been quite a sight. People did ,V "f' , '- Q V, laugh. And a wheel-barrow is a most deceptive sort of a contrivance. lt fs' . 51 -, is really supposed to transport, intact, all manner of things. lf so, then ' f 3 why should a bundle of clothes, cleaning boxes, wash basins and mirrors X disagree so concertedly while being transported? Actually the disagree- ' A 2 ment generally waxes so noticeably that the wheel-barrow hits a stone, i , stubs its wheel, turns turtle in the middle of the road and then-but, of L ' - cour-se, the verbal part of the scene is best left 'to the imagination. How- ever, with it all we finally moved to camp, though nearly to tears by the roadside. 'Q , Camp is a haven of rest and drills. One so overshadows the other that most of the morning is spent in drilling for a rest. But the rest never comes. Then, why drill? Of course, gentle reader, you must be reminded 7. that this is West Point. Why eat? Drills in camp are very interesting. Most any afternoon during the summer-out- of-doors vacation cadets may be seen gathering around a bulletin board eagerly gulp- ing down the printed results of the morning's drill. Tactically speaking, the bulletin could not be successfully published without enumerating carefully all of the interest- ing parts of the engagement. Truly, a drill is an engagement. It engages one so raptly from start to hnish that men have actually been found passing the morning under an alluring shade tree when they should have been chasing contours here and there over the smooth surface of an uncontoured map. All that was exciting news for the bulletin. lt was so exciting that those who were caught spent the remainder n in 1 ... wel. fm 'Wi i 9 r fig I 3 11 ll! .... fem f tilt" 1 it if L- -i e .-' -,..,,3 ,,..,. 7. 0 vs rrzdzzvrdwrwnnw-' ,,,,,gff:',a-.v., .... ,N ,fg,,:p, 4fff4f42'2:af132gf?2 - .r,.-f,--V . 2 ': -'izffsjt i51f:- -2 .51?25':f,a:f1?:?21"':?'- .414 my .-A :f7.:5f1f'i1'i:f2:!,fi:f?6?5:ff?-ff of the summer walking off the effects. Parades play an importantpart in camp life. A camp without a parade would be as barren as a hop without a yearling. In the newspapers they are referred to as dress parades. In camp they are known as-but why say it? Parade is a most independent ceremony. lt takes place most anywhere under most any circumstances. VVere one looking for a certain weather dehant he would hnd it in a parade. The heavens would no more consider raining when the sched- uled parade time draws near than would the sun play skip the rope with our bash- ,, K -we .wc --x :X lx . xg ful Miss Moon. Even the famous old Missouri National, at sure raingetter in its day, has thrown clown its laurels. Parades, in camp, reign supreme. The spigot is a very important institution in camp. It corrects for all sorts of things. It was even made to apply to Archie Dorst. Of course. one immediately realizes that to suggest a remedy for anything that pertains to Archie is nothing short of a sacrilege. But Archie did experience the spigot. A lr ,. A l QI-L At times the spigot serves as a continual entertainer from immediately after supper until taps. It is kept busy sputtering forth its jog ful stream of dashed iopes.

Really they lil'e it so well that they have been found tied under the spigot f x 4 drinking in all its joys. Someone heard someone else remark, after a decidedlv wet water light one night, that Nr. Morgan ' ought to control the Military Academy. XVhy, oh why, we asked? Because, you understand, there is always so much watered stock in camp. Guard tours, like beloved Tacs. areal- ways on hand. And somehow or other there is a similarity between the two. They are always about camp, and cer- tainly most unwelcome. A guard tour runs all around camp: a Tac runs all around in it. Cadets manage somehow to endure a guard tour for twenty-four hours, but no one has ever admittedly tolerated a Tac for as many minutes. ln fact, the two have so much in A . - common that we cannot even guardedly attack them. But there are some good things in camp. lt is worth while to sit behind the old hedge, putting away on a smokeable cigar and listen to the band concerts. Sometimes we lie on our backs and count the stars and think of graduation. Wfhy not? The stars are miles and miles away, and graduation is ages and ages re- ' moved from camp. But it is always a blanket or comforter swiped from someone else's tent that we spread out on the ground while we listen to the music and dream. And when several classmates stretch out on the same blanket we talk about the service-our branches, our camp and the femmes. Yes, every cadet discussion picks up a femme somewhere. lt would not be complete without her. Even in camp so many of us be- lievedit so thoroughly that now at least one-third of our class is engaged, VVhat a reputation! The old water tank is a place of-after-thoughts.

It is a telling tale that those little hop gloves tell, When, at the tank, they can offer but one lone perfume instead of the usual medley. Then their owner forgets sorne- thing and has to hurry hack to his tent. Because, you see, if he waits too long the other man might learn all his secrets from those telling little gloves. But if that stolid old tank could only talk, where would any of our secrets be? After all, after the general has sounded, the las-t tent has fallen Cin the prescribed direc- tionj, after it is all over and We are marching out of camp for the last mtime, we realize that it has not been so unpleasant.

Finally it seemed as if all the ' corps were madly scrambling here and there en- deavoring to send heavenward a wild, weird, exultant acclaim over the advent of our glorious Fourth. And I lay on my cot and waited and watched. The yells became louder and more piercing. The music came closer and closer, on and on, nearer and nearer it came. At last there burst into view a zigzaging mass of near-clothed arms and legs, gyrating and pirouetting, swaying and swinging, leaping and falling in motley cadence with the music. The conglomeration came closer and I saw. VVhat I saw brings a blush to even such withered old cheeks as mine. Oh, those brazen men! XfVl1C1'C, oh, where were their clothes of decency?

But a Hower-colored parasol was far too lady-like to afford such as me protection. Away, shameless crea- ture, away! And away I went. And soon we reached the plain. Someone Oalloped off on a lar0'e circle. Wfe trailed behind.

As We sauntered off the plain I glanced back over my shoulder. Did I see some shutters, dangling from the hotel windows, showing signs of life? I Was shocked. Surely no one Would Watch us, much less With field glasses. Truly I Was shocked. But then there came the thought to me-alas, it Was but a chance to observe the bare truth of nature-very, very bare nature. And so I trudged back to reveille. And the day continued and the sun g r e W hotter. So did We. At noon the sa- lute to the U n i o n Was fired. At least the fuses Were i g n ite d. It seemed as if e v e r y t h ing in u st h a v e lo n g si n c e been fired, the fire Was de- parted f r o m within us. In that c o n d i- I tion we had Th a nksgiving turlcey for dinner.. But that was not all. lfVe ended our Fourth, our last one at West Point, We ended it. We ended it with a parade that nearly ended us. Such Was our Fourth of July.

I-HKES may be clearly and explicitly dehned if one A is not too careful of his manner of expressing disapproba- 1 'H Eh tion. As it is, hikes may be divided into two classes, sore ig feet and sore-portions. The latter are referred to of- V' "2 hcially as cavalry and lieid artillery practice marches. 6 I The former is called an infantry practice march in all il- -4, , published orders. Among ourselves we once-were prone wi'A X lii'!',.., to call the weary plodders "Dust Boys." This name has g , I become nearly obsolete. Heat has caused the change. ag S Jg Y Along a dusty road on an extremely hot day the heat 5 1 extract from the body, combined with the dust, forms a Q? I Q most pleasurable, sticky conglomeration sometimes called gg- f A.. .4 dough. To this we owe the name, "Doughboys.,' , A doughboy hike may be distinguished from all other kinds. There is nothing elsc on earth quite like it. From a truly profane standpoint-but you understand it costs live demerits, so why say it? To begin such a hike requires an evening of preparation, a resigned disposition and a canteen full of water. tFor substantiation of the latter statement examine the skin lists.D After a minute inspection to ascertain that each cadet has a poncho, shelter tent, bacon can, socks, comb. knife, blankets, fork, et cetera-mostly the last- the hike commences. It continues sufficiently long to raise blisters large enough'to ably serve as hot water bags in Colonel Keefer's ought-to-be-haven-of-rest. Then camp is pitched. Now camp is a most uncer-tain element andis liable to be pitched most any place. If our experience is to be taken into account, one must admit that a miniature rock quarry seems to be about the most sanitary of all camp sites. Besides it permits of coherence-coherence to such an extent that we have rock-lined beds in our rock-bound highland home. Service conditions, service conditions! In natural sequence-once camp is pitched-comes supper, mosquitoes, taps, mosquitoes, someone to kick over your tent, more mosquitoes, dew to soften the skin and then a mosquito festival. Afterward, if the remainder be of material sufficiency to be cognizant of anything, reveille calls. And shortly thereafter begins the field problem. A held problem is a general mix-up, impossible of adjustment, 'which affords an opportunity to tell those in command how everything should have been done. The real problem comes later, during the discussion of the mornings engagement. It consists in discovering some adequate means of silencing those who do not know that argu- ment will never settle the affair. Argument is totally inapplicable. One of our most high battalion commanders went on record as saying that steel bullets and a new hght would be the only way to ' decide the victor. A Afterwarrl comes the march back to camp, the removal of county real estate and inspec- tion. But why continue further? A held artillery hike differs materially from a doughboy hike, very materially. The im- portant difference comes in the means of locomotion. lt is far easier to reach the old, never- failing camping grounds when one rides, even if the mount be Henery. Yes, Henery is a horse.

L eis ' --A :-- picture. That is, you have the picture that someone tried to take when the captain objected. Henery, you understand, is not the true type of an artillery horse. But-+ An artillery camp is always more comfortable than an infantry camp. It is never pitched on rocky soil. Such might disturb the rest of the horses, it might even cause shoe boils. However, this fault is compensated for by a superfluity of formations. Really there are so many formations that one goes to sleep by first call and assembly- that is, if one may be extremely military and adapt himself to the varied terrain as nearly as his natural conformity will permit. And then it is with visions of a wild stampede and the possibility of utilizing one's stomach as a stepping-stone for a mad horse in his playful flight that sleep is induced. Sleep, yes sleep, but not for long. Someone comes stumbling along. You hear him coming. You hold your breath, fearing that he may stop at your tent. He stops. Dame Fortune is a fickle teaser. So you must scramble out and play nurse for a bunch of fool horses who insist upon playing jump the rope with the picket line. This lasts for a whole half an hour of shivering. Then comes the trial. Who can you induce to shiver for the next half an hour? At the nearest tent you are greeted with: 'Tve been on guard to-night," and so you trudge on to the next tent. "Ah, don't bother me, Fm on kitchen police." The journey continues. "My wife is stable sergeant, so I don't have to walkf' Finally you reach the end of the line and hear the Boy say, "Please don't wake me, I have been up all night chopping wood for the fire." Then there is just one thing to do. You stumble along and acci- dently kick over someone's tent. As he crawls out to hx it you hand him the lantern and the wrist watch. As you dis- appear down the line of tents you call back, "You're on guard, you know." And then his trou- bles begin. Oh, guard on a hike is some sport. 221 ' .megan f9?W?2iFff9 f - - 'ani 4- 1' , " H!'E5?"f12L . . wr 2- . ff--fn . ,,,, , ..,, .,: s .. -.. Xi. A '71 '1,. ,- fits?

The sandy part of the name needs no ex- planation, but 1nost of us did not fall for the hook end. However, when we gazed longingly toward Coney Island from the extreme north- ernmost sand grain on the post we saw the point of the hook. VVe got it-so to speak-the hook. VVe docked. The whole post was there to meet us with carriages-for the officers. The trip to barracks was exciting. It was hot. After several minutes walking, a casual observer would have been tempted to remark that we might at least leave some work for the post sprinkling wagon. But we were privileged to perspire. A raincoat, a blouse and a week's lec- ture about good behavior would cause anyone to divest himself of- Little drops of water, little beads of care, Little epithets, dropping everywhere. Once safely ensconced in barracks, the almighty Black Book was eluded. Some ran for the salt water, others for the post exchange, while the rest of us were too indis- posed to even run down our quarters. Surely something is radically wrong when a cadet is too tired to knock. However. after awhile we heard mess call and madly scrambled for supper. Our lirst night in Sandy Hook was memorable. Wfe had t?lkC1'llOL1I' mosquito bars with us. W'e had fought mosquitoes before. but we were not prepared for a strenuous campaign. Taps sounded and all was well. That is to say. we were all in bed nestling the tender thoughts of a seven olclock reveille. Soon-after several hours-the whis- pering subsided. Those always delightful stories were left to be finished the next night-after taps. The squad room was silent. Suddenly a terrible shriek rent the air.

The whole room was in an uproar. Then we realized the source of our pains. The jersey mosquitoes were in our midst. Yes, we had mosquito bars, but one would have better possessed an armor plate. Buzz-buzz Ctender music? and then a zip-'fOuchl he got me!" Those nocturnal prowlers, at least two inches long, came through our mosquito bars as if they were wading through a New jersey swamp. One spiked Spec. Toohey's hand to the floor and rested there contentedly. The poor reptile sipped all the sap out of the wood, thinking it the best part of the feast that the Count had tendered him. Morning came ages after. As the gray, cold light was streaming through the win- dows we were awakened by the most slow, moaning, unearthly noise that we had ever heard. It sounded as if some poor bovine were in dire distress. A deep, plaintive sound it was, uncertain a-t first, that grew in certainty and volume, ever and ever getting louder, until we wondered if it would ever stop. Then after a while it would drone away into the uncertainty that characterized its beginning. Poor, poor cowl Jack Considine said that out on the Pacihc coast they had heard about Jersey cows, but he had never imagined that they could make such noises. Then some knowing seafarer , told us that the dis- turber was a foghorn. A foghorn-a foghorn -well, since there was no other way to stop its' moaning we all prayed for the fog to go away-far, far away, and take the horn with it. But reveille came at last. Our stay at , Fort Hancock was mostly for instruction and practice with the large -coast guns. Of course there are reasons for everything, VVe got our instruction and practice between times -between our trips to that delightful summer resort fthe lastl Highland Beach. Most of us did learn just how long it takes to cover four miles on a bicycle over a good road despite the fact that we were a little lacking in knowledge concerning the corrections for drift, travel and faith-in-God formulas that govern the trajectory of a six-inch projectile. We do know all the things that are kept on hand in a post exchange, although we are slightly at a disadvantage when it comes to plotting correctly the fall of a mortar shot.. All of us did discover that splashing in the rollers on the beach was keen sport in spite of not understanding that "submarine mines are of two general classes and are generally planted-" Oh, yes! VVe went to Sandy Hook for instruction, and we got it-in lots of things. Among other things there was a baseball team at Sandy Hook. In fact, there were several baseball teams and a rougher baseball diamond. They dared us to get up a team and play their post team. They insinuated that we could not hit their local phenom as easily as we hit those targets towed around by some tugs. We were a little backward. Those targets were the most elusive things we had ever experi- enced. 'Christmas leaves were salted herring packed in a barrel compared to them. So 9296 . t ,I ' N.. .

The results, though different, are quite equally effective. In the shooting the slight difference comes in the target. lt is inanimate and, of course, Wholly incapable of suffering from the effects of a lengthy discourse. However, in some cases it has been utilized as a target for cheap remarks. Carlisle shot the course, A rifle target is a piece of paper framed for the unrest of all who observe it. There are various positions from which it may be observed-standing, kneeling and prone. We all are prone to believe that the last is more profitable. At least it is more comfortable.

Then, after collect- ing our hats and lost breath, 1 we hear dolefully, "No. 1, a miss"-then a deep chuckle, "Miss on Z," followed by a screechy, "3, total miss," and so on until, as a Fit ending for all our misfortunes, a big, black score sergeant drawls out in the slowest, most bored tone imaginable, "Total, zee-ro!" Pistol practice is totally a zero. Distinguishable, however, from both pistol and rifle practice comes the practice with the lield guns. As we experienced it, it was practice in everything from actually hring the pieces to what to carry in one's dispatch' case when taking the field. A dispatch case is a most peculiar arrangement. From observation we would call it a lunch basket. But, of course, cadets are most apt to be mistaken. The main fact remains that one must always take a dispatch case into the field. It is almost as important as taking back the target. And without taking back the target no one cou-ld reap the multitudinous benefits of service' practice. Coupled closely with the actual firing is the art of lending one's eyes and ears so that there may be accomplished a complete meeting of the minds. Really it is so -..'i ..

They were all there-Turkey, Scotland, Japan, Italy, India, and Mexico. There would have been more, but there were not enough companies to go around. However, what we missed was accounted for by a full attendance of the High- land Falls assortment. It was urgently requested throughout the Corps that the Tacs also decorate their tents in honor of some foreign land, but the request could not be granted. Internal dis- sension was the cause. The patriotic tastes of the depart- ment were so evenly divided between Sweden, Germany and Ireland that an agreement could not be reached. However, despite our keen disappointment, camp was decorated, and we eagerly awaited nightfall. At last darkness came. Camp was a blaze of lights. Down the midway surged the happy crowd. Merrily they jostled and shoved and joked. Our timeworn Cwith punishment toursj General Parade was unrecognizable be- neath its brazen lights. Young maidens, unabashed, tripped here and there unchaperoned. Soul hungry cadets gave chase. Through the crowd they tore. They ran and ran, only to discover down near the water tank that the coquettish young things were merely daring plebes. A peanut vender pushed through the jam. Peanuts, peanuts-one would well have called it. a circus! Then a rickshaw with its sleek coolie came gliding by. 'Wfhy not the Grient? A wild whoop and a daring picador mounted on a slumbering polo pony thundered down the pike. Viva Espana! Life, life was there on the night of our camp illumination. Mexico, the hrst mammoth attraction on the pike, held a tantalizing allurement. 232 .gm :, nr: - - --N :ref-. : g t- f fzaz:-' 4--l : 'H s . . . c .

Marvelous picadors cantered about fthe enclosure wallj on bully polo po- nies. The fearless es- pada strutted around waiting for the op- portunity to stick the gaff into the year- ling. CHOW tacticallj It was impressing. The vast audience was breathless. Noth- ing could be heard but the double gasps of the tired bull. Its cruel fate was near. It was to be killed and skinned. But the bull objected. It was year- lings, and it argued that they had been skinned enough during camp. After a wild confusion the audience voted thumbs up and the bull was allowed to dance out of the arena unharmed. Once outside, the bull divided. The front legs went one way, the hind legs the other. But they came together again a few minutes later on the opposite sides of a stray ice cream freezer. - Mysterious India was next on the pike. There was dancing in India. But some- one remarked upon coming out of the place that it seemed to him that -they always danced that way in Turkey, not India. The wops in UCD Company were true to their nationality. They were the inhabi-- tants of Little Italy. Just to show their amiability the runts next door in "DU Com- pany were the fair sons of duskyTurkey. And a dark dive they kept.

I1Vhy, it was so much so that cadets really enjoyed the tea that was served there. Bonnie Scotland was on the far end of the pike-but that is all. Presumably, some people think that Scotland is only famous for whisky. In the company street every nook was a lemonade stand, with all sorts of tempting and alluring enticements-on the billboards. Of course the en- ticements may have been in other placesg but most of us were too discreet to gaze into the cozily decorated tents. - According to the prevailing custom, all lights 233 .

The mantlepiece is bearing up bravely under a towel, several hair brushes and two glove-filled caps. A cleaning box, three pairs of dirty cults, four collars and a bundle of soiled belts are struggling with some books for the supremacy of the table top.

Of course, with the scene laid in such a celebrated spot, the usual sentiment had to be introduced, and this was effected early in the act by Clarence Spoonleigh, the hero Cand therefore naturally enough a first-class buckj, who told his trials and tribulations to Valerie North, a K-det Girl. Clarence was, of course, greatly ela-ted by the encourage- ment which the fair charmer handed out to him, but was proportionately disheartened by witnessing Valerie's amours - - with his rival, S, S. Ship, a "middy" on leave. Sev- eral of his friends en-deav- ored to cheer him up, but the scene was enlivened by the arrival of two good subjects of George V., who displayed a fair example of typical English humor. Of course, no hop would be complete without a "turkey trot." which was rendered by Lydia Pinkum and Captain Ryde. The latter was later joined by Captain Cox, who arrived in haste and under an ap- parent nervous strain. He announced to the assembled multitude that the.United States had decided to in- tervene in Mexico, and that the Corps was ordered to Q43 ' ,v '2', rneQQ S' --O 0, 5 '3 W 4 'P lffifm ,l .,.. .

Tthe latter, when 'several of the officers arrived, sold them the patent rights to a sort of infernal machine and put a little mining stock in the hands of the two Englishmen, w-ho were present as military attaches. Of course a bevy of beautiful femmes arrived, adding a picturesque touch, and poor Clarence got "in bad" with Valerie, who refused to marry him if he stayed in a place where his life was in constant jeopardy from the deadly fire Of the Mexican army- consisting Of six men under the command of Generalissimo Kern, who closed the act by arranging a truce.

Q - ' ' " A 11132 tw .11 E nf H 4 -, f T -T it it as it it W-'. jfire ! ! HlS is a Building. It stands upon a Beautiful Bluff overlooking the majestic Hudson. In fact, it is mostly Bluff. In the Background is Camp Has- brouck. The Building harmonizes with -the Background. lt is a hne ex-ample of the Neurotic school of Architecture of the late Twenties. What can it be-a cavalry garage, or the Bingville Counity Court-house? Neither, Clarence, it is the West Point Hotel, the finest Hostelry in the Highlands. lt is also a famous literary landmark. The late Charles Dickens, on his recent visit in 1873, declared it the worst Hotel in America. The Hotel has ever since been dedicated to Charles' memory. It does not specialize on bath-tubs or blankets, and guests are requested to bring their own food. It would be an exaggera- tion to compare it to the Ritz- arlton. Then why is the Hotel? My Child, why is Standard Oil? But see, something is happening. Smoke is coming out of the chimney of the Hotel. Can it be from the kitchen? Certainly notg to-day is only Friday. Then perhaps there is a hre in the furnace, for this is the 14th of June, and it is not yet one hundred in the shade. Nog that is a logical assumption, Clarence, but erroneous. The Hotel is on Ere. As a matter of fact, it has been for four hours, but now it is Hived. The guests are appearing at the doors, carrying ou-t .morris-chairs and alarm- clocks, for they are rattled. On the camp parade there is an Officer in Charge, who is waving his sword. Perhaps he is also a trifle rattled. However, all is well now, for the Corps is turning out. lt looks like the Check after the Reveille Gun, for the order said, Any Uniform. However, they have the spirit, for they are now marching to the Area at Double Time. And there is Sergeant Greene in the file- closers, counting step. Yes, all will be saved. Here come the brave fellows with the -ladders, and the Ofhcer in C-harge. Now we shall see. The Oflicer in Ch-arge tells them to put the ladders against the west wing. That is strange, for the fire is in the east wing. The Onicer in Charge could not be expected to hive that at first. However, he hives it now. How quick a W'est Point training makes a man! He is saying, Steady, it was his mistake, as you wereg the command should have been, Put the ladders against the east wing. The ladders are put against the east wing. The Ofticer in Charge says, Step out and get up those ladders. Now the cadets are almost up to the windows, But the Officer in Charge is not yet satislied. If they go in, they may get killed. One must always guard the lives of one's subordinates. He is saying, Steady, you men, as you were. Come down off those ladders. Something yet remains to be done. The ladders are still against the wall. Some- one might fall up one, by accident. The Ofhcer in Charge is saying, Steady, you men: as you were. Come back here and take down -those ladders. Now all is well, and no one hurt. The Officer in Charge may be said to have Maxed the Formation. VVC will give him a Two-nine out of a possible Eighteen. Next are the "AU Co. boys. They do not wait for ladders: they go right into the door and make for the kitchen. There is a case of ginger ale in the kitchen. This must be removed at once, for it is highly inflammable. "A" Co. is busy emptying the bottles. As fast as they are emptied. they are sent out on the lawn. See with what perfect coordination affairs move. The officer of the Guard has just arrived. and he at once posts a sentinel over the empty bottles. No cadet would touch them, of course. but with so many cits around, one must be careful. What is this strange object-a lield oven, or an old-style sewing-machine? Neither, it is the Fire-engine. It is running, toog somebody must have hived the combination, and lit a lire. Now there is so-mething doing. Picked hands are 24-8 ee '? A El El El 1 In ' J - ,f--M! 'rp 5-I ' 'sas : ""7g?

J climbing up on the porch, carrying axes and fire-hoses. They tear up everything in sigh-t with the axes, and 'then turn the water in. The theory tis, that when the hotel is too badly damaged to burn, the Hre will go out. How clever they are. N05 not all of the water goes inside. In fact, most of it follows the laws for the trajectory in air when the quadrant angle of departure its 90 degrees. This is no place for ofhcers wearing their good clothes. Dutch Van Volkenheimer is the leader of these Heroes, and he is busy boning Lieu-tenant. Also, there are a number of Yearlings, who are 'boning Corp. And there is Pistol Paul Newgarden, who appears to be boning Corpse. He has just gotten tired of his axe, and thrown it off into space. He m.ust have forgotten that it would prob-ably fall to -the ground, and pick up considerable Kinetic Energy on the way. Perhaps he was correcting for the Mirage. If he had altered his Convergence Difference about two mils, there would have been one less Commandant of Cadets. Oh, but look whots here! Two gentlemen appear to be disagreeing. One of them is a Cit in a gray suit and Panama, He must be a Bug, on furlough from Matteawan. The Cit and the other gentleman are not harmonious. The Cit says this affair is being Gummed. He says the fire should have been ou-t long ago. He says there are too many men, and no one in command. He says that if he were in command, the Ere would never even have commenced. The other gentleman is annoyed. He does not think the Cit should criticize military matters. He waves a small stick. Somebody may be hurt in a minute. Oh, this is dreadful! But here comes someone else, who says that if the Cit doesn't shut up, he will be put off the Post. This dreadful threat suffices, and -the Cit departs, shaking his head. If he is wise, he will inspect the Delinquency List tomorrow, for a Report Posted after his Name. In the meantime the Heroes have gotten 'the situation under control. All the mattresses have been thrown out of the windows, and there are eight inches of water on the second floor. The tire is beginning to look sick. But stay! Something is still to do. Purnell has waded into the eight inches of water, and is chopping a hole in the floor. He wants to let the water through to the lirst floor. This is what comes of being raised on a farm, it gives one a Practical Mind. Very few people have Practical Minds. Engineers, especially, are notoriously Impractical. For instance, here comes Simon Newcomer, and asks why he wants to let the water through. He says this floor is soaked anyhow, and there is no use in ruining the hrst fioor. Isn't that just like an Engineer? All they can do is Speck Tenths. He will be asking next why the Heroes should have saved 'the Hotel at all, when it was the manifest will of Providence that it should have been burned. 490Q?G?OQX94i"3X99Q9 Instructor: If a party did not plead by way of traverse, how did he plead?

The situation's rather strainedg I'm crawled with all due stress. I amble home to bone my law, a-feeling rather blue: The tac arrives, and gigs me then, for spot in chimney-Hue. And then a hght for legal tenths, the worst one ever saw, And I get off a loud report about the canon law.

I West Point, N. Y., May 20, 1912. Dearest One: After these many days without sight of you, I have decided that either you must come up for the hop next Saturday, or it shall be the cold I-Iludson River for mine. VVon't you consent to once more bring joy and sunshine into this dreary life of mine? Remember that it has been a very long time since I was the happiest man on earth as the result of being able to drag you to a hop. Since that time never a day goes by but that I awake at reveille with thoughts of you, and my thoughts are likewise occu- pied up to the minute I go to sleep at night. Even in my sleep you are with me, be- cause in my dreams you love me as man was never loved before. I might add paren- thetically that it is somewhat of a contrast to the way you treat me actually. Confess that you have treated me shamefully, and do hasten to assure me that you do care a little bit for your Joey. In thinking of you so much, I have come to the conclusion that at last I have found Her. I fully believe that you are the one girl in this world for me, and I can truthfully say that you are the hrst girl I ever loved. All the other affairs that I have had were but puppy love and delusions which are made apparent by this great passion that has come to me at last. Now will you come to that hop? I am consumed with jealousy when I think of the lucky men who are taking you to parties and theatres down there in the big wicked city whenever you can get away from school. Wfould that this were mediaeval times. Then I would steal you from under the noses of my rivals and carry you away to my castle on my milk-white steed. I would be your valiant knight and you my lady fair. Then woe be to him who should stand in my way if I but wore on my sleeve as a favor thy fair garter. 'When I was a little boy my mother used to tell me to lead a pure life so that any girl would be proud to say 'fYes" when the happy time should come. I have always kept that in mind and as a result very seldom say anything worse than "Dog-gone," and I never smoke cigarettes. Some clay I intend to lay all my virtues at your feet, and until that time it pleases mevto believe that you s-purn them not. Do you suppose, Dear, that my dream will come true? Now please dorft forget that I am expecting you for the hop on Saturday, and please don't make me give away many dances. If you don't come, my feelings will be deeply lacerated and my heart completely smashed. Your ever loving, IOEY.

My Dear Mr. Viner: I am very sorry that I cannot come to the hop on Saturday, but I have a very im- portant engagement with a young man whom I expect to marry immediately after Graduation next month. Besides, I understand that you are to drag Agnes, and although I have known you to drag two femmes at the same time, I fear that I should be in the way. Also "my knight" need not write to me any more, as I never could stand a man who doesn't smoke cigarettes. Very sincerely yours, GLADY5 DUMGARD. 260 My Dear Mr. Viner: Miss Ducrot's School, New York City, May 22, 1912. Gladys tells me that you asked her to the hop on Saturday, so that lets me out.

Cadet R- had acted in a very disagreeable manner during several meals, and when I arrived at the table for dinner on the 31st ult. I called his attention to the fact he would have to be more care- ful, in regard to his actions and language. I said this with all seriousness, but Cadet R- scoffed at 1ny words and belittled my authority as sergeant of the guard. The statement that I kept a close watch on him is unwarranted, for I paid less attention to him than any upper classman at the table during the entire meal. At one time he banged his glass on the table with great force and disturbed everyone there by the loud noise. His language at times was of a vulgar nature, and this, together with his con- tinual intrusion into conversation which in no way concerned him, the banging of the glass on the table and his continued slouch, could not but fail to attract attention. Cadet R-- could have been reported for numerous offenses, but since I was only an acting sergeant of the guard I did not feel I should report him for all of them, but merely desired to call his attention to one of his m-any weaknesses at the dinner table.

The Commandant of Cadets: Sir: With reference to the report, "Falling down at drill," I have the honor to state the following: The time referred to We were executing a movement of advances by rushes. A tactical officer had previously informed us alt a similar drill that one of the main things was to get to the ground as quickly as possible wfhen arriving on the line. His instruc- tions on this occasion were to fall down as one falls when skating. When the squad which I was in arrived on the line I jumped feet first and came down very quickly, as I had decided that this was the quickest and safest way to get down. The grass was very slippery and caused me to slip while I was falling. Very respec tfully, PAUL VV. NEVVGARDEN, Cadet Pvt., Co. "E," lst Class. 264- Suttutfs bquah XfVest Point, N. Y., Ian. 7, 1911. The Commandant of Cadets: Sir: Wfith reference to the report, "Absent from Catholic chapel formation," I have the honor to state that the report is correct. . l I do not attend the regular formation, but a special formation at 9 o'clock of those cadets who act as Sunday-school teachers. The permit for this privilege requires that the "squad" be formed and marched to the chapel by the senior cadet present. On this morning I was the only cadet present. Therefore, being the senior cadet present, I formed the 'isquadf' called a roll, reported the departure of the "squad" to the Officer of the Day, and marched myself to the chapel in a military manner.

The trees stand drooping, bleak and rbare, thc snn is cold and dim, The gusty north winds blow and flare, the morningis cold and grim, At night the stars are bright and clear, and glitter in the sky, Old hoary headed Winter's here, and will not pass us by. Xdfhen in the morning I arise to close my squeaky door, Old Boreas through my whiskers flies, my feet stick to the floor, My radiator's old and weak, the wind comes through my wall, And back to bed I quickly creep, and wait the Hell-cats' call. I listen to the Serenade, the guardian angels' chime, I curse the music as it's played, "That Good Old Summer Time," I rise and don my underclothes, as cold as ice inside, I grab one slipper and my hose, for reveille I slide. Now I could tell of many things that happen here below, The damn soirees this season brings, to help the passing show, Of mess-hall dainties, cold and stale, of waiters on a strike, And of our sad and earnest wail, as up and down we hike: Of recitation-rooms where all can plainly see their breath, And our palatial riding hall, where horses freeze to death, And all these things and many more would help this frozen wail, But lest I do the reader bore, I,ll end my little tale.

But not so much of the ride will I tell As the strange consequences that later befell Our Charlie, a quill and a high-ranking make, Who descended to earth long enough to partake Of the cheer that was offered near Hancock. The Kaydet in question had long been a quill. At last he decided the cup he would hll, - And once at least would he have a gay time, So from Hancock he started out. armed with a dime I-Ie was out with the bunch, and he did it up browng If he'd had a gun, he'd have shot up the town. But taps was at ten, and so homeward he turned, After doing the town and his dime was all burned. Back to barracks he pedaled-his steed was a bike- To make it on time he sure had to hike, But his nnish was strong, and he made it. Through the squad-room he hurried, to check up his crowd "Cut out that noish-don't talk so damn loud. There should be nfteeng I can count only eight: But I guesh .ish a' ri' for the resh of the slate. In the shquad-room dish'plin mush be maintained." And, though only twenty-tive seconds remained, He gave us a lecture we'll never forget On the subject of "Dish7plin" for a cadet. The squad-room grew silent: we listened in fear: In tones loud as thunder was borne on the air His "Dish'plin mush be maintained."

Instructor: If a State denies the suffrage to any of its male citizens over 21 years of age, its representation in Congress may be reduced in the ra-tio that the number of such citizens bears to the whole number of its male citizens twenty-one years of age.

But soon this joy dream fades away. The fiend then doesn't feel so gay. He has a vague, uneasy fear Like Kaydets when the Supe is near. And soon he needs dope all the time The way he eats it is a crime. To get it, 'he'd do any deed, He'd buck the whole T. D. if need. If he does not this habit check, He soon becomes a nervous wreck, And finally with a keeper's found, Or underneath the cold, cold ground So this will warn you all, we hope, To leave alone this deadly dope.

In an age a little later, -the Devonian was its name, All the lishes hale and hearty for a scrap were lalways game, But on returning to their homes, 'gainst wives could not prevail, For the female of the species was more deadly than the male. Advancing' to another age, we Iind on sea and land The doughtly little ammonites all creatures could command However, in their "Home, Sweet Hlomew -'tis known the oft , Y turned tail, For the female of the snecies was more deadl than the male. 1 And later still, the mammoths proud, so strong and full of life in all the rough and ready games, were foremost in the strife. ljut when upon their own hearth-stone, their courage oft would fail, For the female of tlte species was more deadly than the male, And even our historic men, so strong and lierce were they, T-heir greatest pleasure ever was the thickest of the fray. But in a cottage built for two, their shout turned to a wail, For the female of the species was more deadly than the male. And thus in every passing age-along the path of time- In all the deep, wide-spreading' seas-in every land and clime, The proudest hero's greatest power at home could naught avail, For the female of the species was more deadly than the male. So let this fact a warning be to all men fariand near, As lightly, 'long the path of life, ye leave each passing year. Beware the little w-itching maid, so pretty and so frail, For the female of the species is more deadly'lthan the male. - Q73 - ts - I, M Ill El .FH -.-,s .47 : al . .4 :Q Efnv! fill ll is ' -' P ?1:r":'2 ,, .. ...., .. . 4 A .. .. . ..Y. 1 1 -as A 'ff2'f'7,'h 'vi . . y e-AQ Qt- sl -.'fE":ir.i'7' A -- 12.21117 - L5 +1 -' esw'ftf'-spd -5,2 -yr ut " J' - f f, 1 AA' If Qi-is M K-.,,,,.,.....l A 1 ,.Ae 'iflblg , I iffy -1:55:55- 'ii ' 1'f1.'.a:4r.'.fi.r11i 'fa ' 'ff .fi .ug ,, .JP .Q-saga.

One was an rangy sorrel, One was a mean little bay, One was a black polo pony, And the other a flea-bitten gray. I aren't no hand with the horses, For, drawing them just as they stand, You might get a slow-moitiron "hobby," Or you might get the worst of the brand. There's times when you think you can ride 'em, And there's times when you look for a fall, But the things you will learn from the four I have named VVill help you to stick on them all. I was a yearling at riding, Taking my share of the hurt. Eli, the devil, got to me, And Eli was meaner than dirt. Threw me right into the side-boards, Kicked me and tromped me with vim, Chewed up my arm just for love of the harm, And I learned about horses from him. The next one I drew was his partner, Vlfhose name tells the closing of day. It came mighty near being my close, But the gods didn't plan it that way.

Next came the sorrel horse Cullum- Ugly and tricky and mean. He'd buck with the speed of a bronco, And then try to kick off your bean. I took him out cavalry "hiking," Tried to boot-lick the beast with some food, But he bit me for pay when I fed him his hay, And I learned about horse gratitude. So I'm sick of their bucking and kicking, I'm tired of the ones that are wild, And I'll buy me an old, quiet crab-horse, With gaits that are gentle and mild. But I know I'll remember these others, No matter how nice he may be. So be warned by my hunch to steer clear of that bunch, And learn about horses from me.

If you have to think to lock an action for safety, and to zmlorlf it for use, you have cause for worry and you lose time Suppose you place a pistol in your pocket, or grip, or leave it in a dresser drawer at full cock without the "safety", thrown on, or forget to unlock it in a sudden emergency? No Cause for Worry with a COLT--lt's Automatically Safe! The COLT is aulomatiralbf locked when cocked safe against accidental discharge .
