I -N Ihr Zllinnnhing nf mimi uint I HE earliest proposal for a military school for the United States was made by Brigadier General Henry Knox, Chief of Artillery, in May, 1776. His plans were heartily seconded by Colonel Alexander Hamilton and approved by General Washington, though they were not adopted in the form suggested until 18QQ. The constant sup- port lent by General VVashington to the carrying out of this project, even to the day of his death, has caused the Father of His Country to be justly considered the Founder of the Military Academy. In a letter written to Alexander Hamilton two days before our first president died, he said: HI have duly received your letter of the 28th ultimo, enclosing a copy of what you had Written to the Secretary of Wlar on the subject of a Military Academy. "The establishment of an institution of this kind, upon a respectable and extensive basis, has ever been considered by me as an object of primary impor- tance to this countryg and While I was in the Chair of Government, I omitted no proper opportunity of recommending it, in my public speeches and otherways, to the attention of the Legislature. A "I sincerely hope that the subject will meet with due attention, and that the reasons for its establishment which you have so clearly pointed out in your letter to the Secretary, will prevail upon the Legislature to place it upon a permanent and respectable footing. 'i In accordance with an Act of Congress, a Corps of Invalids was organized in July, 1777, 'cto serve as a- military school for young gentlemen previous to their being appointed to marching regiments." In 1781. this corps was marched from Philadelphia to form part of the garrison at YVest Point, which had been a military post since 1778 and already pos- sessed an engineer school, a library, and a laboratory. In 1783, after thecessation of hostilities, WVasl1ington laid the matter of a Military Academy before his officers at Newburg. In his message on December 3, 1793, he again referred to the plan, strongly urging upon Congress the necessity of establishing a perma- nent institution where young men might be Htted to be officers in the army. On his recom- mendation, a school for artillerists and engineers and for the cadets attached to the Corps of Artillerists and Engineers was established at Wlest Point in 17941. The grade of "cadet', first appeared in the American Army at that time. Owing to the destruction of its buildings by fire, in 1796, this school was suspended. Finally, in 180Q, Congress authorized a Corps of Engineers,to consist of five officers and ten cadets, and provided that it should be stationed at Wlest Point, in the State of N ew York, and should constitute a Military Academy. The Academy, with ten cadets present, was formally opened on July 41, 1802, and that date is considered as marking the actual beginning of VV est Point as a true lVIilitary Academy. During the Hrst decade of its existence, conditions at the Academy were, to say the least, uncertain. At times, there were no cadets present at allg at other times, there was an equal absence of instructors. During the whole period both ofhcers and cadets experi- enced difficulty in obtaining their pay. In this time a total of eighty-eight cadets were grad- uatedg they had entered Without examination of any kind, at all.ages from twelve to thirty-four, and at various times during the year. In 1819, Congress passed an act reorganizing the Academy and furnishing the general principles upon which the hlilitary Academy has since been conducted and controlled. In 1817, Major Sylvanus Thayer, Corps of Engineers, became Superintendent, and under his able direction the present era in the history of the Academy opened. The results of Thayer's labors to put the Academy on a sound and permanent footing have proved so lasting and so excellent in every way that he has come to be regardedfas' the K'Father of the Military Academyf' At the expiration of his term as Superintendent, the institution Was firmly established on a sound basis and the foundation of the customs, principles and ideals which have lasted to this day had been laid. - ' 10 ,5:,d4,,- .Y W .f 'SET7 fu, N A FA.

C12 May, 1911.3 Obrgeinizaiinn A condensed outline of the organization of the Academy with regard to the military and academic features would seem appropriate. The immediate government and military command of the Post of YVest Point is vested in the Superintendent, directly under tlIe Secretary of Wiar CChief of Staffj. He is assisted by a personal and aca- demic staff. The personal staff consists of the Adjutant, Quartermaster and Surgeon, who are both Post and Academy staff otticers, and an oHicer who combines the functions of Treasurer, Quartermaster and Commissary for the Battalion of Cadets. . F The discipline and instruction of cadets are carried out under twelve depaI'tments, the heads of which comprise the academic stad of the Superintendent, and with him as President and the Adjutant as Secretary, form the Academic Board. Ten of the twelve departments are purely academic, the other two CTacticS and Practical Military Engineeringj have also duties in connection with practical military instruction of cadets. Seven of the departments CCivil and Military Engineering, Philosophy, Chemistry, Mathematics, lVIodern Languages, English and History and Drawingi have permanent professors at their heads. The heads of the other five departments are appointed for terms of four years. ' The head of each academic department is assisted by the necessary detailed instructors, the senior of whom is an assistant professor. . - The schedule of time allotted each department and its general policy is controlled by the Academic Board, each head of a department being responsible for the details of instruction in his respective department. The Com- mandant of Cadets, who is the Senior Instructor in Tactics and the head of that department, is also in immediate command of the Corps of Cadets, and consequently comes in closer touch with cadets than the head of any other department. His assistants are the tactical odicers and the instructors in physical training. The permanent professors who are members of the General Committee of the Academic Board, perpetuate the Exed academic policy of the Military Academy. Through the Academic Board, the .Superintendent controls and co-ordinates the several departments. . , ' 16 . vv IK 261 a u V . 5 V 'A . 11 I Eepariment nf Elariirn Lieutenant Colonel Morton F.

HUS yodle the graduating classes. thus yodle we, and if our eyes aren't exactly filled with tears-they should he. Yes. indeed. when we think of those days of yore some four years back when one hundred and twenty unsuspecting young beasts came trudging up the long hill. even lA'Iea.rse Henderson's spectacles grow moist, and Georgie Newgarden just gulps and makes a noise like a frog. We were so raw, so pitifully, uncondi- tionally and absolutely raw-just such material. in fact, as is meat to a real old-fashioned Beast Detail, and that detail just loved raw meat. Out in the grape-juice circuits. the idea is sometimes prevalent that the relation be- tween upperclass drill masters and plebes elosely resembles that which existed between Bill Sykes and his dog-but this is very wrong. The plebe detail merely drills its young charges, carefully explaining the right and correcting the wrong. If a plebe has mistaken ideas they talk to him. They certainly talked to us, and when these trancelike days were over, we were actually piping Plebe Camp. It was worth piping, too, for however Kaydets may differ on the latter day plebes, they agree that we were the last to see a real Plebe Camp. To the lily of the field, the cit, or t.he furlough man, the word "camp" means much. Long, lazy days, toppling into one anotherg long afternoons, lolling beneath the red-striped awnings where the chill musical clink is more than all soundsg or perchance strolling with Her through the fragrant woods. But to the military neophyte the word has a different sound. It has the clump like the last. note of assembly when he is running his first agonized lateg it has a clump like a dress hat hitting the ground. "Plebe Camp!" and we see again the rhythmical fall of white clad legs on the tarry roadg we hear again the hideous strains of "Oh, You Beautiful Doll, " and once again each man of us is thinking unutterable thoughts about the meanest man in the world who is marching right behind him. Plebe Camp ended at last, as all things must end. VVe had no end of a lesson and it did us no end of good. VVeiwere still far fit seemed farther than everj from being West Point grad- y e uates, but We did realize, and realize fully, a few of the things we were not.

Soon football gave us something Worth while to live for, and We Were mighty proud of all our men who made the squad. Our class was evidently destined to do her share to uphold the Academy's triumphs, and this, plebes that We Were, made us mighty glad. Our Hrst Navy game ended in a disappointment, and We were a heartsore lot of plebes as Well as upperclassmen as we silently marched up the long' hill on our Way home. The uvvrits 3' Were now upon us. For the fortunate ones who were naturally hivey, or Were native poops, it Wasn't so bad, but for most, that time resembled a nightmare. Who can forget those desperate attempts to cram twenty pages of Blath into one small, blank mind, and then, after the morning had addled our brains, those fancy-free flights into the authorls trade where the exigencies of unity, coherence and emphasis are the only ties that bind.

Hard law, that only the fit survive! Jan- uary saw the diminu- tion of our class by sixteen men. lN'e shared their disap- pointment, we wished them to COIHC bac-kg and for just a little while we envied them as they walked out the sallyport towards free- ' . l dom. The dreary winter melted into a drearier spring. It was no fun now to be plebesg we were too old at the game. Fully established as part of the eternal order of things, we were still the very least part, and our thralldom seemed to give promise of being eternal. History is largely a matter of biographies of great men, and the history of a VVest Point class is no exception. By spring, we had the consciousness of an organization, we were beginning to think less of our individual selves and more of our class and of the corps. Now, too, the dominant personalities came more clearly into view. Already, Moses and Johns had come to be discussed as the chaps that never gummed things, while others were gaining fame as the files who always did. Bill Coffin, Neyland and O'Hare were already men of worth - in athletics, and our one General Bliss ' 'Qs-' C," I ,,'fQ.'Cf ,gl l was known as a plebe of parts in all things military. And Ed Martin! well, it seems now as if we must have always known the mayor, but even this ripe acquaintanceship had a beginning. In Plebe Camp, we came to know, if not tor love, him, and then, after he had joined us in the fall, we came to love him t-oo. Potter Campbell first at- tracted attention as a raconteuv-, and wherever you saw a cluster of awe- struck iles with lower jaws dropped and eyes bulged out, in the center of the group would be our future Belasco putting over a good one. " Glad to know you, '16 ! " and on June 12, 1913, our class became an acknowledged part of the corps. Then we began to live happily forever after. The corps made a pretense of going through the exercises of the previous summer, but the hard guys as-.ri i C..

Walking was long for those who were slugged, but tl1e sympathy of classmates was keen, for every man of us who saw tl1e sorry sight upon the area could say "there, but for the grace of God, go I." In Yearling Camp, our aspirants for military fame covered themselves with glory, and their admiring mates covered them with cold water and the ingredients of the cleaning box. After this one brief Week as cocks of the camp, we fou11d ourselves back in barracks, a11d also back in the rear rank. . This year, the studies assumed their proper proportions, they were an undeniable fact but not anoverwhelming one. Therefore we werefree to pipe football by day and ,dream about it- by night. And our dreams came true! Sweet is the pleasure after paing and the pleasure of a QQ to 9 Navy game brushed away the last traces of disappointment of the year before. The corps went. out in a true holiday spirit, and all agreed it was some picnic. ' 43 . v . 7 'i f- fi I . . sr.. -.ik - -U.. .af 1 af, vw- --trains- -.'

Christmas at the Point was celebrated at the Boodlers, the Hotel, on the radiators and on the areag and the festivities were heightened by such midnight sports as serenades and tactical sprints. The plebes made a whole-hearted effort to revive the eustom of dragging Upper Classmen on Christ- mas Eve, and Ed Nfartin can swear that they were successful. After Christmas, furlough thoughts began to fill our heads, and our interest in the military art waned like a second class gibbous moon as the great day drew near, lllonths beforehand, the dictators of fashion from Yonkers to Newburg gathered in Room 101, and a perplexing time we had in selecting their wares. To decide on a blue or a gray suit was almost too much for spirits quite cowed by two years' dealing with the Czars of the Cadet Store. Fina.lly, one runt ventured to order a gray suit, and then D Company en masse ordered the same. Think of Spence Nlerrill's wild hankering for royal purple, and J oe Grant's esthetic longing for soft mauve, meeting on the drab ground of gray! To this dead level had the millstones of discipline ground us. About the time that the birds appeared on the trees and disappeared on the area, we commenced our furlough songs. The ' harmonies may not have coaxed Eurydice from over the shores of the Styx, but every evening they coaxed one hundred and twenty good furlough men to the shores of the Hudson. VVhat times we had there! lVhen the twilight of years settles down on our lives, again "will come to memory dear", the twilight-wrapped scenes of Battle lllonument with our class at its foot singing its boast across the river to the eternal hills that we, the Class of ,16, " are going away on otu' furlough. " The history of furlough can never be written unless each man of the class should un- dertake the task. The furlough banquet and furlough show saw us for the last time together, and it was a send-off worthy of the great time. Then we scattered to the four corners of the land, some became the gayest of Lotharios at summering placesg some became the war lords of local militias, and the rest simply reverted to type, and became devils in their own home towns. Finally the hunter's moon waxed and wan ed. A hundred- Odd young men had adjusted themselves to the easy ways of a ra- tional lifeg the two A years of soiree had be- come nought but a memory g and, a hun- dred or more romances were approaching the inevitable conclusion, 0911 thi' ifinnf i Olhaaing QT,nntnm-ia and then the Fates got busy.

"Oh, Lord!" groaned Pat Flanigen, as he caught sight, of the area, "this scene comes up and hits you in the face. " Indeed it seemed that the only lack was the in- scription which appears over the sally- port of a si1nila.r inst.itu't.ion, "Abandon hope, ye tha.t enter here. " Of course, the first depression didn't last. Spicy tales of furlough drove dull care away, and it was soon apparent that even the sunnner anmvcrs of T arpley had the Tales of Hoffman backed otf the boards.

W'hen we found ourselves actually piping the weary afternoons spent draped over the drawing boards, hope had indeed reached the lowest ebb. Furlough flitters occasionally passed through our distraught minds, and we realized that it is truth the poet sings, that "Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things." Gln' Hiillinxiziire Squuh However, the football season was a fine, big, rousing one and ended in another Army dayp Christmas leave came and went. and more of us this year enjoyed it. Scarcely had we returned than yearlings began to tell "poor 'HV' of their approaching furlough. Again dough-boy drills' started. also parades, the eastern flock of femmes arrived, and left with weather- bedraggled plumageg spring was in the air. Then with skags and drawing boards we spent long lazy afternoons in the pursuit of the sportive contour, June wasfalmost here. - Finally, came a day when we went out to parade and the band struck up the :'Dashing Wfhite Sergeantug 1915 marched in the file closersg the longest gray line of history swept out to review the corps-and we were First Classmen.

Abe made even the beast detail laugh, and the infectious good , nature that he began to spread has been accumulating ever since. ' Abe is ivellversed in the artsthat constitute what every Kaydet knows, and in addition he has at few of his own. Abe is not a spendthrift-in anything except good nature-and he can take theheirlooins thatpass for fine raiment among the HA ' Co. bucks, furbish them up with match-fastened buttons, and go forth to beard Max in his den. Wlhen old Pete' Daly,Abe's first spouse, died the academic death, who could possibly fill his place and give the house its old tone? Could the thing be done? lVould there ever again be a combination of two such perfect bucks? There was: and George Blankenship was the other half. Abe and George! Long may they wave! Wlhenever old grad meets old grad, and they confess that after all it was the bucks that gave the spirit to old YVest Point, let them bow in silent tribute to the memory of Abe and George-the perfect bucks.

However, Andy was as much at home on one as on the other and proceeded to make good by gaining chevrons in his Work a.nd friends in his play. He has gone along comfortably enough in an academic Way and has acquired neither the disagreeable jingle of the spec nor the knowing smirk of the man who hives it all. In athletics, he used to "keep the ball a rolling U with the basketball bunch, but now he does it in the truly aristocratic way on horseback-for at polo he is one of the best. Andy has roosted with the Owl this last year and claims to have learned more than there is in the Yale and Vliest Point courses combined. A day will come when the bird that adorns the Kaydet cap will be of anot.her feather than the eagle. Then Will Andy have it on all of us, for he can say "I was his Wife." But suliicient unto a Writeup is the guy thereof and this is about Andy.

Our first introduction to George was at the end of Camp Larned back in the dark ages when he sallied forth with a pair of brand new chevrons which the Com had donated to the cause, and a real gruff "Mistah, yould bettah get yo' neck back. " Battleship didnit seem to like the "elite", and soon joined the honored society of bucks. He claims that Abe Abernethy is the cause of his down- fall. George and Abe are now running a close race for millionaire of the class. George is a few simoleons ahead, having recently found a way to economize by not sending waist belts to the laundry. To many who do not know him, George is more or less of a mystery. Every act, every move, is concealed bya quiet, unassum- ing shield of modesty. Born and raised in the sunny South, he is of that quiet easy-going, never-get-excited kind with a, sunny dis- position and a heart as big as all outdoors. He cannot fail to work his way into the hearts of his fellow ofhcers as he has so successfully done into those of his classmates, and when the Hnal reckoning is taken, and we are called upon to produce the fruits of our endeavors, George will not be reckoned among the least. - 56 S mv' Q13 As vi 1: X AJ W. ,av W..

It is said that even the plebes appreciate being cor- rected by him in order to enjoy the unique Way in Weeks, initiating them into the beauties of Kaydet life in beast barracks, and as a result of his efforts and a cup of tea with the Com. he persuaded the latter to hand him a lieutenancy. So now he puts the 9th div to bed every night. He is an ardent exponent of the doughboys, and when he dons his broad White stripe, We are sure that Whatever regiment gets him, gets a hard Worker, an able officer, and a jolly good file. 62 ' '-51-1 , ' ' M ' Swv L i -s 7: ' ' T v.

T IS said that every ambitious runt imagines -himself to resemble the great Bonaparte to a greater or less extent. This general belief is perhaps the reason why s'Bunts" was early dubbed 'fmpoleonr' by his disrespectful classmates. However, it soon be- came evident that whatever amount of efficiency he possessed could hardly be the result of his own efforts, for he runs more lates than any otherthree men, and his main diversion is to deadbeat a first hour afternoon class while laboring under the impression that he goes the second hour. ' So, in time, we have come to forgive him everything but his noisiness. He is a noisy little cuss, as anyone in his div. can testify. lVe have also long ago given up the attempt to present anything to his view with which he 6' could find no fault. For, as a general all around critic, f f he has a New York dramatic reporter skinned forty ways. Wie are quite sure that when he at last enters the golden gates he will complain to St. Pete about the fit of his wings or the poor ventilation of the celestial mansion. However, we have very little to criticize in Earl himself and, in fact, have been indebted to him for the dispelment of many a Nlonday morning gloom by one of his dazzling smiles. Without a doubt, he presents the neatest personal appearance of any man in the class, and has decidedly maxed every job that has beenlhanded to him so far. WM-, .65 , Q , ,,, ,, ,s, Q 1 , i .'

He is built along typical Cavalry lines, too, being so slender, that together with the crossbar of his sharpshooter badge he forms a capital UT. H In fact, his slender waist has made many a femme sigh with envy. He took a trip to Cuba, once, -and ever since that has had an inexhaustible stock of tales constantly on tap for the beguilement of the unwary listener. However, he is- an interesting talker and never tells the same yarn twice. Besides being a mounted scout, he is a misogynist and a drawly-talking F. F. V.,-incompatible as the two pmay seem. I He spends his time, breaking remounts for the "Squire", boning fiction and adding dignity to the house of Dempsey and Hemphill. He owes his ' presence among us to the Spanish Department, and this latter is one thing which he refuses to discuss, lest he break his firm rule of never knocking any person or thing. That was one of the first things about him to attract us, and, after a riper acquaintance, we are able and glad to pronounce him a quiet-spoken fellow, as unselfish as are found and in every respect a friend well worth having.

He is not only right, but has at his fingertips so many facts, statistics and other miscellaneous bits of information, that he can back up his assertions, and you are sure to be overwhelmed in the flood of his eloquence. Carl is a type of the old school. He loves his after-dinner smoke and his after-smoking nap, and rarely are affairs military or academic allowed to intrude upon his quiet enjoyment of life. Blany men who spend twice as much time at their unruffled by earthly cares studies as Carl, are continually speculating on their probabilities of joining the Canadian army, while our hero pursues the even tenor of his way, his peace ' The bane of his existence is his rosy complexion, which at the slightest ' f- -. provocation becomes the color of a ripe tomato, for Carl has never been one W to blow his own horn, and the limelight appears to be his chief aversion.

LL Jack's activities are along very definite lines. As a boxer, wrestler, feneer or gymnast, he has been modestly retiring, due to a strong aversion to physical exercise in any shape or form. His hope is that he may never see another gym on leaving here, for a gymnasium means violent muscular exercise, a thing which forms no part of J ack's scheme of life. Even lN1exican'athletics, if prolonged, fatigue him. His idea of earthly bliss is nothing to do. with a lifetime to do it in. Fine clothes are his delight. On departing this world, his desire will be to travel in a dress suit and an opera hatg that being forbidden, he'll make the journey .in a cutaway. Rest for the body and work for the brain are the guiding principles of his existence. I To the worth of his mental activities, Hundredth Night and THE HOWITZER amply testify. But being hivey is alone no proof of real worth. Jack is more than hivey. Back of his taciturnity, thereis a man worth know- in0'g a friend worth having. Loyalty and aid, even to the point of physical D exertion, his friends may count on-therefore, his friends are a host. f ml i QS ' :- i 1 N s ' ,,....'-15 i t 3 2 80 Q ., 5 , , A . ..- ...V .4.

T IS one of the privileges of the great American public of our day to be conducted into the quiet homes of great generals and actresses, and to be initiated into the secrets of their careers and domestic life through the medium of intimate private interviews by newspapers and magazine Writers. The editors of this publication have not been behind- hand in this respect, and here offer to the readers a sketch of the life of Sidney Herkness, Top Sergeant of the runts. After climbing up three flights of stairs in the 10th Div, our repre- sentative found himself in front of a Wide-open door. It was '7 :30 a.m.-the morning rush hour. In the midst of a pande- monium of runtish squeals and howls, one figure loomed serene. A short, straight, wiry body, surmounted by a lean, intelligent, humorous face with prominent features and deep- set, sparkling dark eyes. It is a face that inspires confidence and friendship, and that is exactly what Sid has done ever since he came to join the Class of 1916. He is a strange combination of Il Penseroso and L'Allegro. And through it all, Herk has kept ever before him that sacred fetish -the mounted service. The Squire will never know how close he came to losing for the Cavalry a man of I-Ierkness' stamp. That bunch of yellow stripes have a rep for being the best bunch in the army, and we will assure them that they need not Worry about their prestige when Sidney Herkness joins his regiment. l 90 1 j , .EUf!lT-3 HQQWWQE F2 " '-c Q 1 f l ' kg?

Perhaps he purposely hides his ability under this disguise of physical weariness. A V. Bill is President of the Radiator Club.

U-B unn' OUGHTON comes from Titusville, Pa., and they do say he is the only native of the afore-mentioned podunk who has enjoyed the rank and privileges of a cadet at the U. S. lVI. A. The local reports also state that he is considered a whiz in his own home town, and it must be admitted that he ranks rather high with us. N ot in his studies, to be sure, because he is rather a goat, but please remember this is a goodgfellowship league after June 4th, and Houghton has a high rankin' place. Henry is blessed with a good nature and a considerate disposition. He also has a big grin that is worth money any time, and on blue hlonday morning he sells it to the Engineering Department for a 2.1 or less. Gloomy Gus .

None other than our own Cadet Johns, who earnestly believes in the words of Bill Shakespeare, "The cautious seldom get skinned. 3' All good things are hard to get, and having a pronounced appetite for such, Johnny set out to get them early in his gallant career in our rockbound highland home. He is ambitious in a clean Way never known to err in a statement, and is patient to a marvelous degree-else he would have annihilated his wife, Rosy Cabell, long since. By personal Worth and marvelous efficiency in the use of his time, he has taken an amazing list of honors. Johnny was not prepossessing-so he carried spooniness to the nth degree. Johnny got a try at adjutant, and likewise he maxed the job. Wle shiftless mortals see him in the glory of his chevrons, buying dark blue trou with red stripe and white piping, and wonder how he does it.

A quiet, methodical, painstaking and slightly solemn manner serves to hide a nature that is full of fun and good fellowship. If anything may be criticized about him, we think that his conscience is a little too Spartan. However that may be, it is far better to have a superabundance of this characteristic than not enough. For a clean Christian character, an upright and honorable nature and a lovable disposition we commend him to you, and feel that you Will never be disappointed.

And this brings us directly to the Nlaguire. Though never having been endowed by nature with a full quota of hair, his treeless brow is quite an asset to his judicial countenance. We used to consider him as being Irish, and could readily expect to find him, lined up with Kitchener of Kartoum, but not so. hlac is a firm advocate of "Deutschland uber alles", and we cannot even criticize the proportions of a dachshund in his presence without receiving a Berlin decree. We mention these, what one may term idiosyncrasies of lXIac's, in lieu of faults, which, during our four years of intimate and pleasant asso- ciation with him, we have never been able to discover. Ham is one of the fellows who are absolutely whole hearted, and we shall always remember him as such. But latent and smouldering in his breast, the careful observer will detect a wonderful capacity for domestic happiness, and if our wishes come true, we shall in future years look for- ward with genuine pleasure and delight to a visit and a good old session at the home of Ham. - ' 108 P J' .N L. , xr 4 rivals , - - f -P l A x .

Although the physical requirements of cadetship have rather strained his ancient bones, his career here on the whole has been most suc- cessful. He takes life as it comes, never complains, never howls calamity and, most of all, never knocked anybody in his life. In his plebe year, a history instructor disturbed our Worthy Oklahoman,s serenity by giving a French pronunciation to his sturdy monniker, with the result that he has been "NIarrio,' ever since, and by this time has grown quite used to it. Carl doesnat say much, but what he does say is usually Worthy of attention. He is a man of high ideals and lives up to them much better than most of us.

No matter that he led the chorus that nearly hounded Yates to a padded cell, no matter how loud he mewed for Blurph Irvi-i-ine, nor how rudely he buffeted Felix with his cornfield Wit, we always thought him like Caesa1"s wife, above suspicion, But at last the skeleton came ratt.ling and groaning all the Way from Averyville fohioj to haunt him, andinow he will eat from Felixis hand, While Potter Campbell, who himself has suffered, can just make him sit up and beg. The nub of the grind is that he isn't from Peoria at allg no, our man from home is from some lesser center for which he put up a most valiant fight when the civic octopus, Peoria, tried to gobble it up.

Strong and plain he is of feature, 'and strong and plain in his life. "What does Ed Martin think about it?,' is the question when some matter of vital concern is brought before us all, and what Ed hlartin thinks and does about it, is always more than the expedient thing. That is why We chose him for the positions among us that required character, fearlessness and worth to fill. To chronicle Ed's deeds or to relate his anecdotes would be to write a biography, for Ed has done things here. But simple it is to record that he has Won from us all our ungrudga ing respeet,.our admiration and our fellowship, and greater gifts than these can no man receive from the corps. 111 .

INCE Beast Barracks, Tom has always inspired us with great confidence that in him we had a classmate who was going to do a lot to increase the prestige of 1916. And despite the fact that being from " Tennessee, suh U, he has had to contend with the inherently Southern instinct of never doing today what you can put off until tomorrow, he has not disappointed us. He started his career here by gathering in a few laurels as an exponent of the manly art of self defense. Later, his artistic temperament interfered and caused him to discard the gloves for the brush and pencil. You will End in this volume several reasons why we are proud of Tom. Strange to say, his favorite subject for a drawing also coincides with his other chief hobby- the weaker QD sex. If we had published all the pictures of femmes in every conceivable pose which Tom submitted, the HOWITZER would be mistaken for the catalogue of a beauty doctor. We also forgot to mention that Tom is a great connoisseur of tobacco. None of this P. A. for him. Every available space in his room is crammed with good old straight Virginny leaf, which no one but Tom has ever dared tackle. He has to chain his pipe down to keep it from crawling away. For a long time, Tom favored the yellow stripe, but now it is the Doughboys to whom we will reluctantly have to surrender him. If you want to start a fight, ask him Why he doesn't take the C. A.

When not engaged in still hunting for boodle or cheering up the dark blue feelings of Gloomv Gus, he amuses himself by attempting the impossible-to break it off on the T.D. Once he tried b'aching a skin to get a bluff on the Tac, w, but after drawing for three Saturdays in succession, he decided that his . bluff had been called. V wigs? . This did not bother him in the least. Big, fat, and happy, demerits i i 'J and crawlings have no eiect and the silver lining of existence always f1.,.fQg I shines for him.

F YOU were a shy young femme in the moonlight on the balcony of Cullum, and chanced to look up into a pair of soft brown eyes peering forth from those long curly eyelashes, tell me now, do you think you could resist him? No, it would be impossible. Jack is one of those lazy, likeable files who immediately wins his way into one's heart and makes a true loyal friend. He is a gymnast, "par excellencef, and his good work in the Indoor Meets has always been a sure point-getter for the class of 1916. The sight of his slender, graceful body performing evolutions on the horizontal or parallel bars, is one to call forth many a feminine squeal of surprise and de- ' II . I A h light from the gallery. In our Yearling Camp, Jack was always in - the front rank of PS.-ers, and could juggle a teacup with the best I -. ,Q of them. But since he has attained his third stripe he leaves these N4 , , X pastimes more and more to others, and I fear me there is a One some- I I where to whom this great change is due. The scion of a long line of illustrious graduates of the Academy, Jack does not show their propinquity for rolling up tenths, but as long as he can enjoy life, and leave here on June 12th with his sheepskin under his arm, he doesn't mind the fact that he is a goat and is far from the ranking ten of the class. He likes the pure white stripe, and next September some Doughboy regiment will receive a large asset in a small package, labeled John D. Miley, alias Jack. S ,..

Coming here directly from several years at a "tin" school, he did not, as might have been ex- pected, assume that he knew more about things military than his fellow Beasts,but straight- way began to take full advantage of the means here offered to perfect himself in his chosen profession.

Academically speaking, George has had a pretty hard row to hoe throughout his four years here, and deserves no end of credit for sticking to his guns so persistently. But When he tries to bone sympathy, he makes an awful mess of it. For how could anybody pity a man who radiates or rather resounds with cheerfulness from morning till night? Since his childhood' days, George has made a specialty of noises-queer 'nQses, produced by the lungs, until now he has the most enviable repertoire ever shown at the Point. The hit of our Color lines, shining star of several Hundredth Night Shows, and our general all-around little ray of sunshine-George is indispensable.

It was scarce a A windfall for Pat when these exponents of the mental jiu-jitsu picked him up and tossed him into the middle of last year, for no man enjoys having a year added to his sen- tence here, but it was certainly a lucky throw for us, for Pat is a classmate well worth having. Pat is a past master of the gentle art of catch-as-catch-cang in fact, though he is be- comingly modest, he is a regular lightweight champion. He has other interests, too, in the Kaydet menagerie. At intervals he has his oil tans tapped, and thus armored for the fray sets out toward the hotel to capture a few hearts. And he has success-well, it wonlt do to kid Pat too much, for as we said, he is a virtuoso of a primitive art. In spite of his strength, our understudy of Beltane the Strong lives in peace with the "Cn Co. folks-another example of the benehts of prepared- ness, for what else could curb such practical wits as J oe Grant, Nellie Russell, Duke Townsend, et al? In spite of the well known axiom to the contrary, there is "one holt what can,t be broken, and that is the "holt" that Pat has got on the affections and good will of his classmates of 1916. 130 Elhnmaa Green Regina THE SUNNY SOUTH Appointed from Sixth District ALABAMA as Us Clean Sleeve, Mai-ksman, A.

A few days later, Reinie was made Captain of "Bn Co. When a new captain comes to a company, everyone looks askance at him. They watch almost breathlessly to see whether he will be a quill. They note his every fault, and woe unto him if he is a gumstick or if he canlt control his company. Thus we watched Rein- hart. After a few weeks, we swore by him. He has that rare quality of commanding men without antagonizing them, he leads rather than commands. Reinie acquires a remarkable number of if tenths with apparently little boning. He will have his choice of the Field or Engineers. It is rumored that he wonlt occupy a seat in the bachelorls mess very long, either. Rarely is he seen at the hops and he isnit a great P.

Besides maintaining a high class standing and engaging in football and wrestling, Possum has found time to get his share out of all the good times to be had at the Academy. Scarcely a hop passes that Pos- sum cannot be found sporting and frolicking in the art of Terpsichore, meanwhile whispering amorous compliments into the ear of some fair damsel. Possum, We hope, will eventually find himself in the Ordnance Department, and there is no doubt but that he will reap the success which his determination and ability deserve.

VVhat he wants he gets, if hard and faithful work can procure it. After two years of plugging on Cullum he was rewarded by making the first squad and also an "AU in his second class year. At classes, his star has not always been in the ascendant. An erratic desire to display his knowledge of Spanish in Engineering Writs did not materially aid his progress.

But IVhit persevered, in other words he bided his time until the T. D., using regular drill regs., common sense, made him a sergeant--yea, a dashing white sergeant. Not only is Wlhit military, but he's a prince as well, a good file to know, a good friend to keep. His good old.Southern drawl, his quiet unassuming manner, l f capture not only the men, but I might whisper, the- femmes, too. Bob is some A, BS.-er, but nevertheless no fair maiden has yet been able to ensnare him, and M for good reason. Bob believes in LIVING, and he believes that two cannot I3-gfj tizf do it on a Second Lieut's,pay. In the matter of athletics, Bob excels as a horseman and polo player-two if requisites for a Cavalryman. ' ' Here's to you, VVhit, luck and happiness in everything you undertake.

REDDIE is our class song bird. Wray back in the pre-furlough days he used to lead the nightly choir rehearsal at Battle hlonument. And was there ever a color line without Freddie's sweet voice? Nay, Pauline, there never has been. But Freddie has other accomplishments. He has a long roster of fair damsels whom dragsl' to the hops by Saturday details: Summer Girls, Southern Belles, Football Peaches, and Post Femmes all come in due season. He would probably never away with it if it wasn't for Craigie Krayenbuhlls resourceful knowledge of the weaker sex. he H be able to get As to ambitions, he has none. His cherubic smile won him a corp from , ' i the post Women, but sad to relate it utterly failed to hold it for him after ix I - he had run over in "dis.', seven months in succession.

' ERE we present Johnnie, our infant wonder, .our pride, our envy and our despair. When he first arrived, the othcials suggested that he try Ladycliffe, for the mess-hall was temporarily out of lNIellin,s Food. However, he stuck around a While till they let him in, and soon his faculty for solving weird math problems established him as a prodigy. Did you ever draw the same subject in recitation Q as Johnnie? No? Wlell, you have reason to be thankful. VVhen he finishes, the last word is said. Your poor efforts shine like a candle before the mid-day sun. He topped the class at the end of plebe year, much to the edification of those observing the fact. His endeavors in song writing met with slight encouragement, and when he formed the "Tenth rf1'llSlL,, with Nloses as side partner, the goats held an indignation meeting. But hels a hivey ' engineer With the right idea and he doesn't often tie things up. In gym, he,s nonchalant and non-dexterous, but as yet he hasn,t fallen apart. Like a Ford, heas still running.

This picture, however, like any Lother, fails to do VVillie justice. You have to hear him to appreciate him. For four years, his fluent "line" has been the chief entertainment of "DU Co. and everybody else that could get near enough to hear it. Throughout his course here, VVillie has gone from one close call to another, owing his delivery to the saving grace of his ever ready tongue and a supernatural luck, and he has shown his Willingness to trust his fate entirely to the aforesaid luck. As he says, he did pretty well on the target range, considering that he never stopped to fuss with such minor details as the windage and the eleva- tion of his rear sight. Always good humored, with a kind word to everyone, generous to afault, and a thorough gentleman in the best sense of the word, 'fi 1 the Sergeant is one of the best liked men in the class. If the same guardian angel who has watched over him here will only follow him out into the army, his future is assured, despite his indifference to his own welfare. f " fi LF it 168 william 'iKn5rnP munh111a1'i1 BROOKSYILLE, MISSISSIPPI Appointed from First District MISSISSIPPI " IYOODY " Corporal, Captain, Blarksman, VC., Fencing Squad C-LD, Polo Squad, Indoor lleet CLD, Cullum Hall Squad C3,2,- Numeralsj, Hundredth Night QD, Hop Manager 12,11 T ALL began at that memorable time, the graduation hop, at the close of our plebe year-IVoody's debut into the social world. And such a debut-Oh! He needed but an introduction, and in almost the time it takes -a normal Kaydet to tell a femme that he loves her, VVoody had the feminine world at his feet. By the end of Y earling Camp he was undeniably the master hand and Beau Brummel of the class. The fame of his "inter- twining eyelashesn had spread to the utmost realms of femme-dom. W'oody's pleasant smile, his engaging personality and his ability to rival the Castles at their own game have Won for him a home wheresoever he may choose. But he doesn"t ,Q 4. ,-4 if seem to choose. He never -commits himself. Probably that is the secret of his -11. success. ,vgw . But VVoody's success has not been confined to the gentler sex.

Need- less to say, the cadet store has never declared. large dividends with the proht made by selling him gold lace. Ben was not a ladies' man, despite Otto Lange's large feminine acquaintanceship, until our trip to Oscawana. There, on the canvas covered tennis courts, he made his debut. For thirty-four straight dances he twirled a sweet young thing in pink, 4- doing cuts and glides that would make onels head swim. VVe all feel that if Ben had had an earlier opportunity in football, we would have had another name to add to our class list of fame. On the squad for the first time in his First Class year, he was the mainstay in the second team line. Yancey came to us in our Second Class year. On account of his reti- cence, not many of us knew him as well as we might. He is the sort whom it takes two years to,know, and the longer you know him, the more good you find. . ' iff if-.

As if no class had ever had a furlough before or ever would again, We chanted, "lVe Pity Poor Sixteenf' But, while we never would admit it to others, a sneaking feeling of suspicion occasionally bobbed up in our minds that perhaps Sixteen was not so much to be pitied after all. N ow, as they go out into the service and we move up to take their places, we are frankly willing to change our "pity 'i to "envy." For surely, the men of Sixteen are to be congratu- lated both as an class and as individuals. During their four years of work in the class room, on the athletic Held, at drills, in theendless 'succession of daily soirees that is Wfest Point, they have come up to standard,-they have "qualified" Wle of Nineteen-Seventeen wish to express our sincere appreciation of their attitude as the First Class. "Efficiency without quilln has been their motto, and the three classes below them can testify to their success in carrying it out. The relation of the First Class to the rest of the corps is more important than most of us realize, and the complete absence of any difficulties or misunderstandings is greatly to their credit. VVe take up Sixteenis position in the corps with a deep sense of responsibility. With their work to guide us, let us enter our First Class year determined to carry it on so that we may pass down to the succeeding class the high ideals and traditions for which the corps stands.

Back in the dog days of Tubby Doeis kingship, We knew that such a thing existed, even though it Were some- where near the Golden Gates, far from South Cadet Barracks. Yearling Christmas leaves were over and we had settled down into an apparently endless chain of Nlonday mornings before the possibility of a time when We would no longer comply with Paragraphs 511, 431, etc., Regulations U. S. BK. A., began to dawn upon us. Then plans were made which would make one of YV. J. Bfs Chautauqua tours seem like a quiet, sedentary life. hlost of us were going to make a close study of the country, its flora and fauna, While not a few were contem- plating extending their magnetic fields abroad, Where there were still more Worlds to con- quer and impress with the dignity of a second classman and the Worldly wisdom born of long and intimate association with C. Smith. Wlith such matters to ponder over, what if we were under the tutelage of Pechols and surrounded by the tender solicitude of the T. D.? Wlhat before had been of prime importance, were now mere inconveniences to be endured until June 12th and then-well, August 30th did not occupy a very prominent position in our imaginations. Finally it came, and had we been 'gshuffling off this mortal coil, " instead of leaving for only a short time, we could hardly have scattered things to the four winds more effectively. By a process of differentiation between taxis and other modes of travel, we managed to beat out a late, and arrived at the Hotel Astor with very few casualties. Some of the less responsi- ble had shipped their trunks containing their pocketbooks to their podunks, and others had not bothered at all with such trifling matters. "Chin-Chinn and our subsequent political gathering in the grand ballroom gave us a good start, and we needed no more. The early summer flew by. August came and with it occasional brief forebodings of the 30th.

Gordon's inasterpiece, began to float by on the summer breezes, and we decided that we would indeed urather bear those ills we had than Hy to others that we knew not of." But even that outlook was brightened. Vile got back to the " Old T ownu and met the men with whom we had lived for two years Cour classmatesl, and somehow it took the sting out of com- ing back, and August 30th was not as black a. day as we had pictured. Of course, we drew our textbooks and equipment in the rain according to the estab- lished custom for returning furloughmen. For a month, it was like climbing that Oscawana hill. Then the football season opened, and the remnants of that "out of placel' feeling faded away. W7 e were headed for the Polo Grounds again, and above everything else was the remembrance of the last afternoon we had spent there and the determination to bring home tl1e bacon in the Hsame old Army way." And now that we have brought it home, now that we have pulled down all the stars in the Navyls Hrmament, our ambition takes another leap, and the heart of the class is set on keeping unsullied our record of never having seen a Navy victory. So,everybody up, fellows, and let's pledge ourselves to back that old team and every man on it with all thatjve have in us, so that our dream of Hlfour Straight" will not be a dream, but something we'll be proud of to our dying days.

The fears, the disappointments, the discour- nothing could agements of a hard year, were all forgotten in that supreme moment! Wlith laughter in our hearts, We lightly tossed care to the Winds and drank deep of our cup of joy. The New Freedom had at last arrived! VVe therefore began to whoop it up at once, feverishly awaiting the coming of evening when we were to make our triumphal debut at the Graduation Hop. The gymnasium, where the dance was held, was a scene of great beauty. Flowers. palms, flags of all nations, colored lights, cadets in glittering uniforms, and beautiful girls, transformed a prosaic building into a garden that might be envied by the fairies. If any secluded corner failed to contain a Yearling Hwithf' it was because the number of 'fwithsv failed to go around. The unroniantic or disconsolate stags were content to snuggle up close to unlimited ice cream and cake. The next day, after we bade goodbye to the graduating and furlough classes, we started right in to learn how to run the place. fTI1 anticipation of Yearling Campj First, riding lessons were among the novelties we encountered in Camp George B. Davis. In the good old riding hall, so Wide was the distribution of vicious and bony horse- flesh that the most efficient and spoony kaydets were reduced to - well, to tanbark, not only with considerable frequency but with beaucoup de vie. P. BI. E., however, was a more cheerful duty. It was a keen 11101'l1lI1g,S deadbeat down on the river, where we day- dreamed, Watched the day-line steamers pass by, and boned up a good appetite for dinner. In other Words, it was just our speed! The fact that our maps, when handed in, showed hills instead of valleys, and vice versa, troubled us not a whit. Artillery drills and dancing lessons took up the time not devoted to riding or P. NI. E., leaving us the afternoon for amusement. 186 -.f,,,- -iff' - A '- .Vit ""' - li" 'fi' i, ' V ' T f "f:iif.,f1' I I . .. , ,, 'fflfliifl-47' 'f ' 1 ' fi, i i'f" --gafifilfllmi. .ru-'. . . f ...' , we ...4. me Sarge.

The tennis courts had on their waiting lists members of some of our oldest and best companies. The most exclusive circles moved on the golf links. ,Dar- ing devils spooned on Flirtation. while some of the most unregenerate K oh, contemptible!j fell for picnics and tea-fights. Mattress drills were a favorite sport in the body of the en- campment. and many a golden dream of furlough was Wafted by the strains of the Y. BI. C. A. victrola to those who slumbered. Certain very ornamental corps lost their chevrons at that season, but why'go into harrowing details? Suffice it to say, that they took their B. A. degrees with more or less composure and forthwith began boning undissiness f?j. Aside from our games, our interest centered itself in the Camp Illumination, which was held on Friday. the thirteenth day of August. A lucky date it proved. The success of the affair was manifest from the beginning of the evening till the sounding of taps long after midnight. The First Class outdid itself in planning and executing the side shows, cabarets, 'iscoot-the-scoots.',' and general festivities. The Camp Illumination made us realive that the summer was nearing its close and that the practice march was at hand. In anticipation. therefore, of the long hike, we took a trip to Popolopen. ' Shivering shades of Davy Jones. but our camping place was damp! Ditches and levees proving of little avail in keeping the elements out of our shelter tents. recourse was had to canteen-cups as bailers. But as we still shipped heavy seas, we finally, under the direction of the tactical department. moved camp up the hill. Tents were pitched with a careful regard to military "hygienic" principles. in having the heads of the sleeping bags some fifteen inches, lower than the feet. Service conditions. you understand! Finding ourselves. after that experience. well caved in. we were all ready for our week's trip over the river. YVe struck Peekskill, hlohansic, Muscoot. Mahopac, and Oscawana, all in turn, and found good camping grounds at each. The cordial hospitality of the Mahopac people. we will long remember. Saturday morning. the last day of our hike, we sighted the old familiar battlements and arrived home in excellent condition. itinuttg Ziruhlrnxz 1 87 1 'Q' '-' -. s -4 4- its? sf ' .N,, 1 -,. f .e:'f1' -- W ff'--1,s:M- W -.:. . 73,4 .

Parades, hops, sword drills, meal formations, were all ours to mangle at Will. Shall we be accused of self-flattery When we modestly affirm that they did not suffer at our hands? And who is going to tell a femme that she's gummed her spec when she says that " a Yearling is far the most interesting type of kaydetg he is always so enthusiasticf, fHow did she guess?D For a week We lorded it and carried things high, so that our joy was very, very sweet. And then-Saturday night came and with it the returning First Class. Camp lasted only a day longerg too brief a time to produce any jarring anti-climax. Back in barracks again with "Descrip', and kindred incomprehensible subjects! Boning filled the time till our trip to New York and the Navy Game, when the N avy's goat quivered and shivered to the bray of the Army's mule. Back to the old routine, and then Christmas leavegejust a small, cold slice of the luscious cut to be served in J une! And now, almost any evening, you can find us out at the monument, piercing highest heaven with the songs that mean so much to us. Every Y earling who can, goes out and joins in the uproar, Thirty, twenty-nine-how can we forget them! Do you think we could ever lose track of them-those days till THEN? 'G Oh, me! Oh, my!

A., we were marched over in batches by an orderly to our future homes. As we, the N a.tion's newly adopted pets, straggled along the walk, a thousand fancies and conjectures crowded through our brains. VVere we pets? Sure. The papers all said so. Don't we prance about on spirited chargers at Field Artillery and Cavalry Drill, receiving the admiring glances of the fair sex? One hour's snappy Dough- boys gives a fine appetite for beans and slum. Of course, we didn't know that it would be beans and slum, and we granted that it would first take a little drill to get in shape, but then, that wouldn't last long. But it is the same with every class, and we were no exception to the rule. Our dreams were soon to be trampled in the dust--so were we, in fact. YYell, it's an old, old story. Wie dragged our chins in and heaved our shoulders back just the same as the rest who've gone before us have done and those that will come after us will do. From the time we reached t.he top of the stairs in barracks. it seemed as if the lid had blown off a certain place, and that lid continued to stay off while we lived in Beast Barracks. Wie sure had an efficient bunch in charge of us. lYe've been told what a pipe dream this class has had, but Beast Barracks was a pipe dream reversed. There have been times when we have felt like crawling into some hole in the ground and pulling it in on top of us. XYell, it was all right if a man had a sense of humor-just so long as he didn't smile. Take for instance our lovely sight-seeing expedition. See West Point! Sure we did.

You see the trouble was, we didnit have much time, and since there was something Wrong with the sight-seeing cars, we kind of had to run.. Another beau- tiful little stunt -of ours was to caper about in a circle while our beloved superior officer stood in the middle and watched our antics. Next came Plebe Camp. VVe1l, that wasnlt so bad. Of course, we had the devoted attention of the Yearlings and First Classmen, which made things interesting, to say the least, but we had become members of the corps and could stand the gaH if the others could. VVe weren't so bad at Doughboy Cthanks to the devoted attention of those who drove the beastsj, so we had nothing to worry about there. In the field problems we covered ourselves with glory. Not being so adverse to clean- ing our guns we had a remarkable advantage over the Yearlings and blew many a detach- ment into eternity. CTheoretically, of course-all field problems are exceedingly theoretical, except the one out at Popolopen where the theory got lost somewhere in the mud.D It was sort of distressing sometimes when we would ambuscadeabunch of Yearlings and kill ,em all C theoretically, as usualj, then to have the dead men coolly announce that we were their prisoners. The summer hike was a beauty and a joy forever, in spite of the fact that our happiness was slightly marred by peeling spuds and dragging buckets of mythically germless water. There was plenty to eat, so we ate it-while we had the money. KI wonder now, what part of my anatomy locates that 957 .55 I started out with.l ' To summarize our stay in Plebe Camp, we learned a whole lot. Any one of us could qualify for all of the following: pack-mule, waiter, metal-polisher, vaudeville quick-change 25355225 EE: 'W " 's"7'jf"""'l its Eg thi' Numhrra-Binvngagr ann iluugr 192 , r ..' .H in A 4 .fi 534, ,Z'.,wga'. y v ' 1.x ' L I I 1 1 -. . , . - , , 1 , ' " 52 gs 1 .

Then came barracks. Gee, what a relief! We could dead-beat all we pleased and in general could ru11 around loose. But. at the same time, Math., Eng., and Hist. began with a bang and have kept up ever since. Later, came that great day of the Navy Game. We've seen but one Army-Navy Game, but we saw the Army win. Here's hoping we'll never see them lose. ' Cliristmas leave is past. now and we have nothing to pipe but J une. June is glimmering somewhere off in the distance, but it is on the road. During the time this class has been here it has done its best to deliver the goods. There is plenty of talent as far as amateur acting goes, and that has gone greatly t.o help the Color Lilies in camp. Wle have no one remarkable athlete in our class, but every man who has anything in him has done his best to show it and give the corps the benefit of it. In football, we have several men on the first team and a number of good players upon which a team can be built in the future. The class has turned out a number of baseball men who, under the instruction of Sammy Strang, will produce plenty of results. Our basketball team has put up a good fight. but has been handicapped by the lack of a good foul shooter. The indoor meet will show what gymnastic ability there is among us. So far we have lost some good men where the semi-annual exams have taken their toll, and we probably will lose more in succeeding years, but the rest of the Class of 1919 goes on. to leave behind a. record that will long be remembered by the corps.

Prior to 1890, athletics, that is, competitive athletics between cadets and teams representing other colleges, were unknown. Spasmodic efforts had been made to induce cadets to indulge in athletic contests amongst themselves as early as 1847, when the superintendent in special orders Urequestedi' cadets to form cricket clubs, and with a view to perpetuating these clubs, he suggested that they take appropriate names. But this effort, as all subsequent ones, failed because of lack of interest on the part of cadets, and especially because of the extreme conservatism on the part of' the authorities regardingthe introduction of any new feature that might possibly infringe on cadets' military or academic duties. It was not until the year 1890, many years after all of the other prominent institutions had recognized and en- couraged that form of physical activity amongst their students, that the venture was reluctantly undertaken here. This was considered a very hazardous step by nearly all of the old graduates of the Academy, who viewed it with the greatest misgivings and who considered it the surren- 1 dering of the Academy's most effective and essential asset- 5 conservatism. It is very much to be doubted if this concession would l have been made to cadets' by the authorities if our friends ' from the Naval Academy had jolted this conservatism less 'W severely when, upon very short notice, a team of midship- men lplialllcinlged the cadeftls to a game of football that resulted in a disastrous rout for our team-only two members of w ich a ever playe a game of football before. The sting of this defeat, which was felt by oflicers and cadets alike, and the desire to retrieve this disaster, encouraged all interested in the Academy to redouble the efforts they had made prior to this time, to induce the authorities to recede from the position they had taken relative to these competitions. After considerable importuning on the part of the younger officers stationed here, and in consideration of the oft-expressed desire on the part of cadets to be permitted to spend their hours of recreation in the various forms of these activities, together with the fact that other usually conservative institutions had recognized athletics, and lastly, no doubt, the defeat by the Navy, the objections of the authorities were finally overcome. to the extent of permitting cadets to participate in these competitions in a modest and restricted form, by way of experiment. How keenly and critically and expectantly the result of this experiment was Watched by all those interested is appreciated only by those whose knowledge goes back to that time. That the outcome did not revolutionize the Academy nor impair its edficiency in any way, is evidenced by the fact that these competitions have continued to be sanctioned and encouraged by the authorities ever since. From the very modest beginning in 1890, athletics at the Academy have made rapid progress, and it was not long before our teams found themselves promoted out of the class of the "small colleges" into those of the "big collegesf' where by virtue of their athletic qualities and the superior ethics of sportsmanship of the corps in general, they have continued to prove themselves worthy of the best. The value of competitive athletics at any institution, when conducted along rational lines and denuded of its objectionable features, cannot be denied. Here, however, they have a peculiar and a particular value, for aside from their importance physiologically, which at a military establishment can hardly be over-rated, they also have a psychologic and ethical importance that is at least the co-equal of the physical. QQ5 HQ QEEQXEJLQJ F741 il K2 with Through them, the corps is adorded a community of interests hardly possible by any other meansg a rallying point about which their interest in the Academy, in the corps and in one another is centered and from which emanate that closer and better acquaintance and respect for the best virtues for which each of these interests stand, and upon which all that is best in the traditions of the Academy is founded. Through this community of interests, the spirit of athletics at the Academy, if I may so term them, the narrow- ness, the self sufficiency, rightly or wrongly charged against the old regime by the Academy's enemies, is subvertedg a cadetfs vision is broadenedg class distinctions are eliminated, a better and more lasting cama1'adm'ie is estab- lished, and loyalty to his fellows and to the Academy is fostered in a way that cannot fail to redound to the benefdt of the institution and to the corps, resulting in a happier and more contented corps, without detracting from its military or academic efficiency or lessening its sense of obligation toward its sterner duties. Aside from the advantages enumerated above, which might be termed the internal advantages, these con- tests also have the advantage, by bringing cadets into closer relationship with representatives of other prominent institutions, of giving them an opportunity to formulate a very accurate opinion of the physical and moral stand- ards obtaining at these institutions, as these standards are almost always certain to be reflected by the teams representing them. On the other hand, the visiting teams and their followers are given an equal opportunity to make the same observations relative to the standards that obtain here at the Academy and amongst the corps. All of this can result only in mutual benefit, and by creating a better understanding, develop that degree of respect that should prevail between our great schools and their respective student bodies. While the spirit of athletics is far-reaching in its effect, its principal asset, the one upon which the whole fabric of athletic competition must depend entirely for its success and without which this spirit would be impossible amongst gentlemen, is the ethics, the morals of sportsmanship, for even the most desired and the most glorious athletic victory must be counted a disastrous and shameful defeat, if the morals, the true spirit of sportsmanship, were violated even in the slightest degree to win it. Physical aptitude and superior physical strength are the inheritance of the few rather than of the many, but moral strength is the common heritage of all. From the beginning, the Corps of Cadets has been imbued with this spirit, and through it they have justly earned the reputation of being second to none as exponents of all that is best in the ethics of sportsmanship, with- out sacrilicing in the least their reputation for the superior physical quality of their efforts. So splendid a reputation, the legacy left each class by the one that went before, is a heritage the conservation of which is worthy the best edorts of all connected with the Academy. To the cadets particularly, however, the stewardship of these principles belongs, for as long as they are conscientiously adhered to, and as long as every individual cadet will guard them vigilantly, as though he personally were responsible for them, which he is, the athletic spirit of the corps will continue to prove itself worthy of the best traditions the Academy stands for.

But it is the worst form in the world to start in with the end of the story. Our initial kick-off came on October Qnd, against Holy Cross. That, however, was not the beginning of our season, because football with us is a study as well as a sport, and with at least one man on the team it is a year-long subject. The close of the Navy game, won or lost as it may have been, is followed by an election, and the newly chosen captain, with the past season fresh in his mind, is already planning, as the train rolls him up the Hudson, a future victory more glorious than ever. So, quite early in April, Captain W'eyand turned out all candidates for Spring prac- tice. lt was no mere formality, either, this ante-season work, but a valuable opportunity for individual improvement in funda- mentals, such as passing, goal kicking, sprinting and, more important than all, holding onto that ball when onels hands or a single hand or afinger tip were on it. A somewhat similar workout during the summer brought out a.ll plebes with football aspirations, and furnished a good line on what new. material could be expected when Fall practice started in earnest. The general call for candidates was issued Sept. 4th, andljust at that time a hot spell struck us which lasted a week and handicapped-considerably the preliminary work. Lieutenant Daly arrived during the week and immediately took charge. The coaching staff which was unusually large, comprised, in addition, nine assistant coaches, and was augmented by the coming of Captain Graves, whose presence soon became felt in the improvement shown by the line. Great indeed was our satisfaction in the knowledge that again we were to have a "Daly T eam,', and that the best line coach in the country was to train our forwards. The schedule proved to be, in reality, much stiffer than it had appeared on paper. Of the nine games played, we lost to Colgate, Notre Dame and Villanova. The Hrst contest with Holy Cross, who presented a light but fast team, well versed in the open attack, resulted in a 14-M tie. Devlin's beautifully thrown passes were responsible for each of their touch- downs and took the Army defense, so to speak, unawares. On the' other hand, straight line plunging proved our - most effective weapon and would have doubled the score but for inopportune fumbling. lNIurrill handled the team mrgann, cusp: , 15115 well after Neyland was hurt. During the week, the coaches mdfman, Qlupt., 1515 QQ9 E99 QEQWWJMTZAELQQ Q36 were busy experiment- ing with Weak spots which had shown themselves, and the Gettysburg Game found many changes in the line-up, among them, Oliphant agnd Walker at end, and Timberlake in the backield. Murrill con- tinued Well at quarter, his passing being especially Well done. Oliphant starred Glrgixigfurafiinal throughout and Q totaled sixteen of our twenty-two points. As a whole, the team showed development in its offense. The few symptoms of over-confidence which showed themselves about this time, however, were quickly dis- pelled by Colgateis victory in "one of the hardest but cleanest fought games ever staged on the Plains." Wie unhesitatingly give the New Yorkers full credit for the heavy, splendidly trained eleven, the first that ever won from us. Their line- smashing, particularly on off-tackle play, and Wide open passing formations proved consistent ground-gainers throughout. Our best chance to score-an attempted placement goal from the forty-five yard line, fell short by a few inches. McEwan showed up conspicuously and was all over the Held. He was almost always the first man to sense the direction of attack and to stop it. E E A Georgetown appeared a week later with a much touted team, '-mm-- having to its credit a 9-0 defeat of the Navy. The game ' showed a World of improvement in the aggressiveness of the team and developed . , t g perhaps a little too "C9IIir" f ' -f 'P' e-J' much aggressiveness in return. The back- field and line worked as one, and in the second quarter took the ball sixty yards down the field for a touchdown.

Our work, defensive and offensive, was but mediocre. ' The game with the big Indiana team that had been scoring almost at will upon its Western opponents, and had, for the two preceding years played us most spectacular contests, was eager- ly looked forward to as a real test of our mid-season caliber. And though we must record a 7-0 defeat, it must not be thought thatthe team was tried and found wanting, for such was any- thing but the case. We saw very plainly that day, that the Army had the fighting' spirit of old surging in every man, that the stuff which wins victories was there afplenty, and therefore that we could not fail to give a good account of ourselves on ' ' 62-W, Hiurrill Getting Qin frllan Q3 1 EQ HHQWMT F711 il K2 Q36 that day of days just two weeks 03. Notre Dame kicked off at 3 105 P. M., and from this time until the end of the third quarter, the ball was almost constantly changing hands. And until then, although both goals had been seriously threatened, the score stood 0-0. In the second period, indeed, Notre' Dame had run the ball to our thirty-yard line and had essayed threedrop- kicks, two of which were blocked, and the third sent wild of the bar. The half ended with Oliphantis brilliant run of twenty- five yards from his own goal line. The fourth period passed in a much similar fashion, until with ive minutes to play, Ollie heeled a fair catch on the forty-six yard line and elected to try a goal from placement. The attempt was about as perfect as anything may be and yet fail. The ball struck squarely in the middle of the bar and bounced back onto the field! Thus it was that a half inch made the difference between probable victory and defeat. Notre Dame immediately launched a succession of end runs which carried them to our forty-five yard line. A pass to Bergman evaded Armyis defense, and with the pigskin tightly clutched to his side he joyously raced over the ive remaining white marks to a touchdown. Just at this rather uncertain period of the season, the Spirit became particularly notice- able. Everybody was turning out for practice, every day the stands were filled with a noisy mob t.hat sang, cracked grinds and forgot their tenths for a while. It showed the team that we were right behind them all the time. Nlaine came next. An easy and a very encouraging game for us, for although Blaine was undoubtedly weak in some respects. we could see that our own team had improved not a little. Of our twenty-four points, Oliphant was responsible for seventeen, two touchdowns and a field goalg while in the third period, Prickett carried over a pretty pass from Gerhardt for the inal score. On the twenty- Hrst, Springfield was defeated, 17'-7. lVith the Navy Game but a week off, no chances were taken on having a first string man laid up, and the big line was not sent in until the last few minutes of play. It was only now that the quarterback problem was finally decided, and Charlie Gerhardt chosen to fill the position. How he did it, how the rest of them did, how twenty-two men fought a good fight and were the better thereby, how we finished our season in a blaze of glory-you may find it all in the next few pages.

Immediately, however, a number of the latter were taken over to the Big Field. The schedule included four games with outside schools and one with the husky third squad. It wasn't an easy schedule, either, yet Cullum pulled through undefeated. Hamilton Institute came Hrst on the list of victims. They looked pretty good in their new headguards but fell before the brand new attack of "Beans" Herman and his henchmen. The Hnal period was played in a semi- darkness through which the spectators could just distinguish rushing, hurtling bodies and i leaping forms, while above the dull thuds of combat rose harsh cries of "raw meatf, and even worse. Commercial High, of New York, and the N. Y. U. Scrubs met a similar fate. Then came the Cornwall Game-the big event of Cullomis season. Immense preparations had been made, the lVIain Field appropriated for the occasion, jerseys and breeches patched, inapproachable officials chosen. A great crowd of rooters was to be on hand, also a goodly gathering of the fair. Long and loud the battle raged while the stands stamped and howled advice. No teams were ever more evenly matched, however, and t.he final count was 6-6. Every plebe should turn out next year, and join Cullum. Not knowing how to play is no excuse-few on Cullum do.

In nothing, however, has it obtained a wider application than in football. At the beginning of a season,last yearls team appears on the Held, depleted more or less by gradua- tion. It seems fairly easy, you say, to fill up these holes with new material and then go ahead with last year's methods. But that system will not suhice, because you have now not a made-over team to deal With, but a new one with a new individuality, even though much of the old personnel may still be with you. It is right here that the coaches come in, Mt. Stearns Tit. Jour!! EEL Euge .EL llignue Giant. Sultan Et. Bnlg Olnpt. Clhuura and on their knowledge and resourcefulness depends a very large amount of the teamls later success. Their services areqof the'primest importance, are absolutely essential to the building up of that unifying spirit which makes of eleven men a single Hghting machine. Such a staff has an organization no less definite than that of the team itself, certain men devote their entire attention to the line, others to the ends or the backlzield, still others to the scrubs. Over all is the head coach. His energy and enthusiasm dominate the whole squad and impart to it that elusive requisite which may best be termed morale. For the past three years we have had with us a man whose very name seems to have spelled success, and it has become almost a maxim throughout the service, that a "Daly" team cannot lose to the Navy. This past season, in addition, we have had as associate coaches, Captains Graves and Sultan, Lieutenants Pullen, Franke, Stearns, Thompson, Hoge, Jouett and Wynne. Lieutenants Selleck and Crawford brought Cullum Hall through another suc- cessful season. The corps extends to the coaches, one and -all, its sincere appreciation of their untiring work. It is to be hoped that as many as possible may be back again next year to help us in lengthening our famous string of victories. Q35 saeigermwmrirfanra asa YSTENI! Work! Spirit! It is with unbounded joy that we place after these watch- words of our past .season their most Htting sequel-Victory! Once again has the mud stained leather returned with an Army team, and once again has that Navy triumph of 1912 been shoved further and further backward in our memories. Our preliminary season had been rather uncertain as to results. At the beginning, there were one or two problems before the coaches, the most important being the develop- ment of a quarterback. In the earlyugames, line, ends and backfield were shifted about extensively, the aim being to obtain the best possible combination for future use-against the Navy. Experi- ments are expensive, however, and we paid by having a somewhat larger total of points rolled up against us than usual. It was apparent very early that the team pos- sessed a great deal of latent strength. To systematically bring this out to its maxi- mum at the proper time, to send forth on the Polo Grounds eleven men at the height of their effi- ciency who would fight as one and could not be defeated, was the task that confronted Head Coach Daly and Capt.

In spite of the weather, which throughout remained its sad- dest, the contest, to quote the Herald, "was a great football game in every way, ..... worthy of its place in the files of the Army-Navy classicsf' Oliphant,s wonderful playing stood out as perhaps the best performance on any gridiron of the year, and we cannot do more than echo the praises of the press, and take joy in the thought that he will be with us for two more seasons. It was not, however, a one man team by any means. The line, led by big Babe Weyand and "Mac,', played the game of its life, smashing every attack and showing in its close following of the ball, the results of Capt. Graves, coaching. hiultiply every word of praise the line gets by ten, and you will still not give them half the credit they deserve. In every play, and at the bottom of it, they are the very backbone, heart and soul of the team. Coffin, Neyland and Redfield formed a trio that handled the kicking and following-up department in a manner pretty hard to improve upon.

'fi SEASON so eminently successful in every way , ' as was that of 1915 comes rarely to the lot of H ,gm-'nil' any team. In looking over the eighteen games L I .. won and three lost, We feel a very justifiable pride in 1 -' our record. VVe believe that man for man, and as a 1: - whole, the team had no superior among the colleges of .1 K w the country. And we know, all of us, that the one big , , - factor in our success has been Sammy Strang. His ' genius for inside baseball, hitting, and the development .of material has again carried us through victory after -", victory over the foremost college teams and over the Navy. VVhat we have done in baseball we owe to , 7' M, Strang. Our debt cannot be expressed and may only be ' Q 1'zfiirVi:' ,N j paid by future victories. ' ' A . ' ' First call for candidates was sounded, March first, and a record squad' reported. The exceptionally good Weatherpermitted us, after only a week andahalf of cage practice, to get on the diamond by the fifteenth. A necessary cut was made at that time, and a division into first and second squads effected. Last yearis team was almost intact, but one position Ccatcherj being left vacant by the graduation of 1914. In spite of this, however, competition for every place in the field was close and no one felt sure of his berth. Our opening' 'contest with N. Y. U. more than justiied expectations. The score, 15-0, indicates our errorless type of ball, and shows what soon became evident, that in the hitting department we were to be particularly strong. Neyland started in the box, with Bonham receiving. In the sixth, 'with the score 10-O, they were relieved by McMal1on and Oliphant, who proved an equa ly effective combination against the New Yorkers. The work of the injield was fast and good throughout, Prichard at short, and Coffin at second, showing easy familiarity with their new positions. Saturday, April third, found us in the midst of a blizzard which prevented the Dickinson 'Game A cold, windy day, together with the 'fact that we were at all times on the safe side, made the following contest with Stevens but ordinary except for Merrillat's fine home run. The Rutgers Game went much the same way, with the Army on the long end of the 6-0 score. With three easy victories to our credit, the season had been 5 properly started.

'Q' -If:-55:25 teams evenly matched -the most ardent fan could have desired nothing more. Lafayette got off to a start that left us breathless. hIcMahon's support in the first two innings was anything but gilt-edged, and the result was indicated on the score board by a formidable total of 5. In the Army's half of the second, Oliphant, Bradley and Coffin singled in succession, and Dunny sacrificed, bringing in the third run. lVIac refused to allow any more scores, and Neyland, who entered in the seventh, appeared in the same mood, Snappy stick work brought us one in this frame and two more in the eighth, which was enough to sendgeverybody home happy. The second game, made possible by an unexpected holiday, was, if possible even more exciting. Sarcka, a new man, pitched the entire nine innings in veteran style, although forced hard in the second and seventh by the Lafayette sluggers. In the latter, with the score 643, we felt pretty safe until a couple of opportune smashes, plu around second, made it a game again at six all.

Harvard tallied in the" fourth, when Nash singled cleanly to center and came home on two wild throws. In the latterhalf of the ,same frame, errors in the field gave us two more, and so matters stood pat until the seventh-the ever lucky seventh. Two things now hap- pened which .clinched our victory. Army, led by Hobbs and Gerhardt, went after the ball' with better results than ever, and at the same time the Crimson infield went badly to pieces. Five runs came in to swell. our total. The eighth saw both sides out in 1-2-3 order. Harvard came up for the last time, des- perate, and for the moment things looked exciting. Loose Helding on our part filled the bags, and a run followed on a near hit which Prich could not send over quite in time. And now appeared a formidable trio of pinch hitters-Ames, Brickley and Tooley. A moment sufhced for each. Back to the bench went Ames, Brickley and Tooley. The game was over, the scoreboard: Army 9, Harvard 2. ' on the following'lVednesday, Seton Hall fa new team on our schedulel arrived, accom- panied by two hundred vociferous rooters. Until the very end, everything was plain sailing. McMahon started in the box, but was relieved by .Ney- land in the fourth. A Our runs came in easily un- til at the first of the ninth the score stood 8-3. Then Seton Hall, by taking advantage of misplays and A Gllusv Em-iainn 249 HQ ?fSlQN9JBl1VZEJji2 QE carelessness, chalked up a tally and filled the bags. Unpleasant, to be sure, but not at all serious, so we thought. Just how it happened will ever remain a mystery, but suddenly Fisheris smashing drive sailed beautifully into the road and four men ,A romped home! The score was tied.

" A regal 3 The next three games, Penn State, Washingtoli t dii' i ffglfrhunf and Lee, and Holy Cross, were all won by decisive fsffhafhf scores, Neyland adding the Hrst two to his string of victories, while Sarcka proved too strong for the last in a long drawn out contest played in the rain. Like a thunderbolt out of a clear sky, came our first defeat, as totally unexpected as it was crushing. To Fordham, backed by twenty-five A hundred rooters and two brass bands, went the honors of the day. VVith the exception of Coffin, the whole team slumped violently and inexplicably. His two clean home runs and fast work at second were the redeeming features of the Army's play, but could do little to stem the tide that had set against us. Briefly, from the box score, we have: Fordham, 20 hitsg Army, 9 i s errors. The final count was 16 to 3 i 0 uufl against us. With the Navy Game but two weeks oE, everyone suddenly woke up to the T . f fact that we had been drifting along of late in the self confident belief that our A team was unbeatable. In its direct - again effect, therefore, this defeat was worth 1gr,,,,,,rh Q50 E9 FHQWMT P71533 K2 Q55 more to us than a victory. The game on Wednesday with St. John's demonstrated to an anxious crowd that our slump was but temporary. Sarcka, supported cleanly by the infield, pitched his fifth well merited win. On the twenty-second, Springfield's veteran nine just nosed out a typically rainy-day affair. The second inning proved McMahon,s undoing. The slippery pellet refused absolutely to obey his fingers, and the second inning ended with a six run lead against us. N eyland took up the cudgels in the fourth and effectually stopped their scoring. Careless base running lost us the game after a great exhibition of uphill Hghting. The teams seemed to feel the absence of Strang, who was watching the middies at Annapolis. Villanova was vanquished on Wednesday, and in such a decisive manner as to leave no doubt in our minds as to the teamis fitness, phys- ically and mentally, on the eve of the big battle. Elsewhere will be found the record of our seventh consecutive victory over the Navy, a victory all the more glorious because critically wavering and uncertain to the very last ball pitched. ' , ' On Monday, the Seventh arrived for its twenty-second consecutive contest. Coffey pitched creditableball for seven innings, Sarcka taking charge in the eighth. Hits, runs and errors abounded for two and a half hours, the Hnal score being in the neighborhood of 15-8. Syracuse sent up a practiced lot of ball players, and they performed so well that not one of us made the circuit-our Hrst and only shut-out. Sarcka allowed but one hit, and de- served a victory. The final game came on J une fifth, with Catholic U., the Army winning 6-1. Neyland displayed his very best curves, and the farewell support of the grand old outfield was protection itself.

Und,-rvwnrf' HE Middies, some thirty strong, arrived on the 920 express, Friday morning. Nluch to our disappointment, classes went on as inexorably as usual and prevented us from tendering them the welcome we desiredg a welcome that should favorably compare with that which nobody who made the Nineteen-Fourteen trip to Annapolis will ever forget. Noon came at last, however, and with it a chance to show the lVIiddies we knew they were here. That "Long Corpsn, which" Ike" Eisenhower turned out on the way to dinner, meant a lot. It said, .Hrst of all, "Here's to you, Navy!" It showed that the corps would be right behind the team on the morrow, it insinuated quite plainly that everybody was feeling pretty good. The day passed slowly enough. Both teams held light practice during the afternoon and retired early. Needless to say, we retired early, too, but not without a fervent prayer to the weather man to 'ibe decent just for once. U The stands are crowded with a brilliant and variegated throng. Cheer upon cheer thunders sonorouslfy forth from the solid mass of gray which is the corps, echoing and re- echoing across the plain and calling forth answering shouts from numerous little groups of gold and blue. The latter, though fewer in number, make up for it by their enthusiasm. A group of sailors has already become conspicuous, and with a beribboned broom as a banner, maintains a continuous vocal attack under the inspired leadership of one who has evidently spent the night in New York. The Navy goat tugs at his leash. He doesn't seem to care as much about the game as he ought to, and is with difficulty restrained from wandering on to the diamond and nibbling the green infield. The photographers are finally driven .,.-. from Captains Hicks and Me1'rillat, and the Army takes the field. As the stands burst into the Long Corps yell, the Hump U raises his hand. The game is on! jf Eliirst Zlnning ,H A Fisher, T., opens with a Hy to short.

Bob is' on it like a flash, but slips when about to throw, and the bags are full. A criticalsituation, but Neyland, with his accustomed cool- ness, remains master of it. Calhoun takes his time, but fansj Blodgett, next up, follows the same route. Fisher, T., appears forg his second at- tempt, and again favors Prich with his offering. This time it is an easy bounder which forces Rodgers at second and makes the third out. NAVY 0. A - For the Army, Brad dies an unwill- ing victim to Blodgett's slow ball.

Hicks registers in the hall of fame with a terrific smash that shootsfby Brad and lands in the river with a splash. Two more across the plate, giving the ltfid- dies their big inning.

Two down. hlerry waits and ambles to Hrst. hlitch electriies the stands with another screaming smash that goes through hloran in right, and rolls to the fence. Two runs come in. Ollie lays down an easy one to short, making the third out. ARBIY 2. Zliuurth Elnning Smith, first up again for the Navy, fans in short order. Fisher, H., con- tinues his brilliant batting with a hard drive to center. hlerryis throw-in is high and Smith goes to second. Adams follows and hits into a neat double play, Mitch scooping the pill up and tagging his bag, then shooting it home to cut off Fisher. NAVY 0.

Army pounds the ball hard, but everything goes up in the air and only one man sees first. ARMY 0. Eighth Zlnning Bob has everything in the world on the ball when Navy comes to bat again, Rodgers and Calhoun both fanning without a smell. Blodgett connects, however, and takes first on Frich's error. Fisher, T., then singles cleanly, placing Blodgett on second. Smith grounds to Coffin for the third out. NAVY 0. . Bill is up irst and due for a hit, but luck is against him and the ball goes straight as an arrow to center. Neyland grounds out to short. Gerhardt comes to the fore with a hot drive past Fisher. He braves Hicks' wing a second time and is again caught by a faultless peg. ARlVIY 0. . Ninth Elnning Vilith but one run needed to tie the score, Navy takes up a desperate offense. Fisher, H., registers his fourth hit-a two-bagger. Adams, who follows, lays it along the ground and Charlie is there with a peg to second which finds Fisher yards away. NIcFall goes in for Glover and slams it hard to Bob who passes it right on to second, forcing Adams. Two down! The redoubtable Hicks is up again and singles. Victory hovers tremulously from side to side as Rodgers walks to the plate. Two go by him, untouched, the third, met fairly by his full swing, sails up and up and up, then sinks blissfully, contentedly, triumphantly, into Hobbs, ample glove. NAVY 0. Fisher, T ....

Hibbs who was i -fm' in f, , ' k L t I captain, was unable to play on account of his 1' 12, -Q1 heart. Naturally, in the first two or three games, . X V there was a slight lack of teamwork and some in- ,flwifl 'U X in accuracy of throwing. An inclination to play in 1 ,ix gf streaks also manifested itself. These faults began 1" ' Q5 to disappear, however, as co-ordination and confidence were gained from practice together " ,Q 'M and, after Christmas, with ouie in for the am time, the five worked very well. The season started with St. Johnis College, on December Llth. The game was fast throughout, and in the second half our ine physical condition began to tell. In the last few minutes of play some pretty floor work and accurate shooting brought us out in front with a comfortable lead. A week later, New York University, combining steadiness and a good passing game, administered a Q8-19 defeat. Our play was erratic and uncertain, and the rally which started late in the last half found us too far in rear to catch up. Yale re- peated the dose on the 18th. Our work was very similar to that of the previous week, and the score, Q9-19, almost identical. Lehigh came next, and ran up against a combination that was plainly in the mood for nothing but victory. Oliphant wasin for the first time and celebrated his return to action by all-around spectacular play. Bayler shone also, and brought us all to our feet three times with dazzling baskets. Rumor says that Gus had a particular reason for wishing to distinguish himself that day, that the reason, in fact, was right up in the gallery. Comprenons! Needless to say, we were victorious and by the round score of 24-17. llflanhattan, who followed, also tasted defeat. While not as sensational as that of the previous week, the contest was fast and hard and the team showed up favorably. On January 22nd, Swarthmore played us a real thriller from start to finish, and only won in an extra five-minute period. To say the game was exciting is to put it mildly. The score see-sawed critically from side to side, and the result was ever in doubt. Just as the final Whistle blew, Ollie made it 141-141 with a toss from the foul line. Everybody stood up and shouted and heaved for a winning basket. It came before long, but it wasn't ours! The following game with Springfield also went againstuus. Some consolation for these defeats was felt when Brooklyn Poly. was smothered 30-10. However, we could not win ' 259 H95 ileimlffjhifl F741 333 K2 , consistently. Pittsburgh proved alto- T gether too strong. Their guards stuck close to ,Ollie throughout and their offensive work in the second half was a revelation. - Our fifth and last victory of the season was a hard-fought and well- earned one over Syracuse. Then Union struck us just after the Hun- dredth Night Hop. They have a habit of striking us about then, and this year's was their fourth straight win. Four straight against us is about enough! Cornell's smoothly playing machine took the last game from us, 36-26. So ended the basket- ball season of 1915-1916. The record of won and lost might be better, it might be a good deal worse. Those who followed the team through its formidable schedule knew that it was a strong, hard- iighting team, showing the results of careful coaching, and as great in defeat as in victory, in short, a true Army team. The Plebes had an exceedingly ambitious schedule this year, including matches with Yale,,19, Fordham. '19, and N.Y.U.,'19, and the strongest New York High Schools. They were not as successful as last year's plebe team, winning but Eve out of the eleven games played. There is m . good material among them, however, which will surely be of use next year. B a s k e t b all has become ad- mittedly our most important indoor sport, in fact, it is the only indoor sport in which we en- gage with out- side institutions. We always have a good team and not infrequently in the past few Q60 EQ EHQWMUMER Q65 l years we have defeated the best colleges and the leaders of the intercollegiate league. The Navy cage artists play up to an equally high standard, and yet, in spite of the great interest which such a contest would be sure to arouse here at Annapolis, and in the services at large, the two Academies have never met in this most exciting of sports. The Army- Navy Basketball Game, which has been proposed, argued for and against, and relegated to the future for the last half dozen years, is still a thing of the future. Nineteen-Sixteen goes out with the earnest hope-that the remaining classes will continue to Work for this much-to-be-desired contest. . Uhr Svquah Bayler, Britton, Hibbs QCapt.j, Jones, A. 111.

The long-looked-for rink be- hind the gymnasium seemed also assured, as the Athletic Association had voted 8500.00 for its construction. Plans had been made and work actually started when along came a blizzard which simply had things its own wayfor three Whole days. The skies Enally cleared and revealed four feet of snow upon the site of our prospective rink. A rough estimate fixed the cost of its removal at just 850000. So the snow staid Cit's probably there nowj, and the money remains for future use. During January, a snow banked affair was constructed on the plain under the direction of Colonel Stuart, who devoted so much time to it that we doubly felt its loss when an unfeeling thaw took it away. However, there's not much more use in crying over melted ice than over spilt milk, so we philosophic- ally trudged up to Lusk, -the old reliable. Stevens, who came on January eighth, had had little more practice than we, and was defeated 4-1. All our scoring was done in the last half, when the team warmed up and showed some fast work. After a practice game with Newburg A. C., which .was easy, there were three weeks of no ice, and then Dartmouth landed on us. 9-0 looks bad, and it isg but there was some consolation in our decided brace in the second period. Rensselaer Poly. played us a scoreless tie on February twelfth. A heavy snow fell throughout, and the puck could be followed with diificulty.

One would search long and far before find- M ' - ing a more prohtable way of spending the Winter afternoons than in the warm, active atmosphere of the fencing room. In this connection, we cannot sufliciently acknowledge the assist- ance so freely given -by the many officers of the Post in practice and instruction almost every afternoon, and in frequent matches. This has helped greatly to popularize the sport in the corps. The usual class teams of three men were picked this year, and the tournament to determine class and individual championships was under way as We went to press. Qllaaa Grams 1916 1. INGLIS Q.

Fencing was one of the major sports, ranking after football and baseball, and the "A" was regularly awarded. Our withdrawal from outside con- tests, in 1913, was an almost fatal blow. However, in the last few years, much of the lost popularity has returned, and the squad is steadily growing, though there is not now the great incentive which previously existed. This year, so many plebes turned out that a sys- tematic organization was edected by means of which each upper classman took charge of and instructed a certain number of men. This, withthe frequent lessons of M. Vauthier, tended to promote rapid improvement in those taking up this work for the first time. Of course, many men are interested in both foil and saber fencing and divide their time between the two. For the prospective army officer, the handling of the saber is more important, but there is a certain delicacy of touch, an increase of the play of wrist and corresponding lessening of the factor of mere strength in the other art, that makes it of an equal ultimate value. The teams now contesting for the class championships are as follows: 1916 1917 1918 1919 1. INGLIS 1. IRw1N,S. R. 1. DAVIS, M. W. 1. SIBERT 2. XVEYAND ' 2. BRADBURX' 2. MCGREGOR Q. MALONE 3.

Devotees of the manly art have so I Hle f j g Q increased in number that it now may well lay M Q ' ' - l -' claim to being one of the strongest attractions which V t -" as 57 the gym extends during the winter months. Every T3 if , afternoon, Mr. Jenkins gives impartial instruction, . L entirely outside of his regular class work, to a large if MT ip and varied gathering of the pugilistically inclined. '53 You are shown how to land a blow and how to avoid T ' 'ny' one, incidentally you learn, sometimes quite pain- 'i ' ,Lil fully and with temporary disfigurement, how to re- ceive one. Boxing teaches quickness of thought -fi?7'i', "" and action, the little man who can use skilfully --ff-" and effectively his eyes, hands, and feet, need never fear the onslaught ofa larger but slower and clumsier antagonist. This ability to protect oneself gives a feeling of conidence that is the most important benefit to be derived from the work. To obtain an idea of the high standing which this sport has in the corps, go over to the gym some afternoon when the preliminary bouts are being fought. You will 'Lind the boxing room jammed with an enthusiastic mob, quick to see and appreciate each blowand parry. In the common fellowship of sport, class distinctions are forgotteng everybody roots for the under dogg fair play rules the day and the best man wins. There's something about this stand up, give-and- take sort of stuff that just naturally gets hold of every man with red blood in his veins. And despite the fact that the gloves are big and thick, many an honest knockout has been registered. Our boxing goes distinctly beyond the tap-me-and I'll-tap-you variety. This year forty-eight men signed up for the squad, includ- ing most of last year's point winners and champs. Wfork started shortly after the end of the football season, and con- tinued until the final bouts for the championships of the re- spective classes were fought, as a feature of the Indoor hleet. These contests were fast and exciting to the highest degree, and displayed on the part of both winners and losers a veryx ' thorough knowledge of the noble art of self-defence. The results are shown elsewhere.

Dando 267 IQ EIHTQWMT WAT il K2 RE TLI N those ancient and barbarous days when prehistoric man played with and fought his unwashed brethren, the noble and veteran science of wrestling must, in some ruder form, have reigned supreme among sports. Stripped of its original brutality and modified to fit the milder standards of the present-day athlete, it still retains its primeval appeal of brute strength. Nothing else can explain that irresist- -ds P313-1: ible feeling of exultation which surges fiercely through us whenever we suc- ceed in crushing an opponent,s unwill- ing shoulders to the floor. Here, indeed, is a game for men of might-broad and heavy men, small, elusive meng one and all of them men with muck and wind and grit. At the Academy, in spite of the fact that we engage in no outside contests, and hence are entirely restrictedtointerclass competition, wrestling has always been well supported. The keen interest in the corps as a whole, and the enthusiasm of the good sized squad which turns out every winter and works until March, under the in- struction of hir. Jenkins, serve to maintain the high status which such a sport deserves at this institution. About sixty men turned out when the Navy Game and Christmas leave were things of the past, and cold weather here in earnest. A large number of these were football men, and it is be- coming more and more evident that there is nothing better than wrestling to keep one hard and fit after the season is over. It is a great temptation to be lazy and smoke and bone fiction, but, as has been well said before, you have all of your life for such things. while you never will have another chance for the instruction and coaching you get here. In order to create a more general interest in the sport this year a new plan of work was adopted. Each class was represented by a team of seven men chosen by preliminary contests, one for each of the following weights: unlimited, heavy, light heavy, middle, welter, light, and feather. The T four class teams met each other successively to decide theiclass cham- l pionships. The individual champions for the different weights were de- termined by selecting from each the two men having won the greatest mrvstling Squah 268 ltluttersnn, Olaptuirt EQ IFIQWQQJM F741 S13 K2 RLG? number of bouts, who then opposed each other in the finals during the Indoor Meet. These competitions were still under Way as THE IJONVITZER Went to press. Patterson, VV. G., and Shugg, who have both wrestled consistently ever since they have been here, were chosen captain and manager respectively of this year's squad. The matter of our participation in intercollegiate matches has been largely discussed. To us it seems very desirable in every Way, we leave without seeing our wishes realized, but with the hope and expectation that in the near future they will be.

Last summer, ' ' the dozen were systematically and decisively defeated, and our once-novice settled down to the keen enjoyment of unlimited ice creams and pies. Tennis appeals to everybody because it is Within everybody's reach, requiring neither excessive strength nor an unusual amount of training, g v, 1 though good physical condition is a very important requisite. It is a game which, once one has gotten over the pit-pat period, becomes more fascinating at every playing. The best time to get over this mirth-provoking stage is right now, be- cause if you don't, you will find yourself at the mercy of every one on your Post, and will continually be setting up the refreshments. It is now by far the most popular sport in the Army, and every garrison has some kind of a court. Nineteen-Sixteen boasts quite a few players of merit and has boosted the game considerably at the Academy. Last winter, the Athletic Council was approached on the subject of matches with outside teams, and inally gave its consent. A schedule was accordingly arranged, comprising games with Lafayette, Stevens, Colgate, and New York University. This is the first time that formal contests have ever been attempted, so We cannot expect overpowering vic- toriesg we opine, however, that there will be some clever - tennis developed. Next year, with proper support, our team 39511195 HUF' 3-Wi!!! should be better and our schedule larger. The greatest 9273 Bnlzhlrz CHHZIIILIJTUYIH EQ-D HLHWMFMJIMELQE 1536 difficulty, as everyone knows, is lack of a sufficient number of courts. The present ratio of seven to six hundred cadets and two hundred odd oflicers is woefully wrong. Hereis hoping for more of them and a match with the Navy! The outcome of last spring's singles tournament is shown below. All matches were limited to best two out of three sets, on account of short time available.

There was a time when the golfoid was considered rather eliteg he would go out of barracks a bit conscious of the bag of clubs slung carelessly on shoulder, but nevertheless quite well satisfied with himself. Now, however, the ancient and honorable sport has sadly deteriorated, it has become so generally in vogue that a for- midable fee is exacted of each and every user of the links, and even that has failed to stem greatly the overwhelming' tide of popularity. Though our material is exceedingly numerous, our talent is rather low. Of course, there are brilliant exceptions, lots of them, and a cadet team which played the oflicers last spring did not come back defeated. VVith most, however, the prevailing idea seems to be speed. One does not boast of that record round or that bogey tied, rather that one made the whole nine in forty- seven minutes and didn't 'lose a single ball, either! During the summer a system of monthly handicap tournaments was introduced and a club, or the cor- responding value in balls, given to the man turning in lowest score. A professional from the Great Neck Club of Long Island was also engaged by the Athletic Asso- ciation and gave a series of six lessons to cadet play- ers. VVe believe that this greatly beneited all who took advantage of the opportunity to improve them- selves, and established a very desirable precedent for the future.

No balmier, brighter day could p lit' 3 have been imagined than that which ' A ushered in our Twenty-Second Annual Field L Meet. And, in addition to an ideal stage set- 'Q ' lg ting, there was present that . other prime necessity and source of inspiration, an audience. The audience was large, enthusiastic and l ' brilliantly variegated. It was made up of fem- l , mes, families, officers and kaydets. Of course, 1 A JV! '17 i L-:Q 'f"f': , the femmes were there1 a meet without femmes would be about as exciting as a boat-race Without oars. Families, too, are indispensable. Everybody from Dad down to little Johnny is holding his breath when Henry runs. They didn't come all the Way to VVest Point just to see him Win the two-twenty, but they wouldn,t mind if he did. It would be great news to take back to Hick's Corners, and the old man would tell them all how Hank, who went away to learn how to fight, could already run faster than anybody at the Academy. Of course something had to be tied up, so the T.D. took charge of the scoring. The other officers, and about all seemed to be there, made good targets for the discus and hammer throwers. Those kaydets who were not participants completed the audience. hlost of them had cameras and were kodaking exciting finishes. 4 They were kept fairly busy. The day will long be remembered as one of exceptional performances. VVho will ever forget Tealels wonderful burst of speed in the hundred, and the astonishing moment when the time was first announced as nine and three-fifths seconds? Though other considerations forced the adoption of nine and four-fifths, the feat itself lost none of its brilliance thereby. It was this same Teale who, not content with one record smashed, clipped two-fifths of a second off the two-twenty a few minutes later. He was closely pushed for individual honors by Oliphant, who was placed in no less than four events, and lowered the mark in the low hurdles. Our space permits only a mere mention of such other worthy' efforts as that of Hocker, who heaved the shot just an inch farther than any kaydet had ever done before or of hlaulsbyis great high jumping, which tied the record and just fell short of gaining for him the coveted "Af, . The lVIeet itself was a real triumph for Nineteen-Sixteen. Back in hlarch, with our apparent prospects not at all bright, the class had chosen Prickett as track captain. It was 277 Elf Q Hsu R111 wmmnsin Rua GIPEIIP Ennirring thn !Krrurh fur the BED-Harb Bash a very Wise move: Under his direction, a system of urging out all men who might possess track ability was carried on. As a result, new and valuable material appeared, competition was keen in the preliminaries, and our final team was a picked, well-balanced aggregation rather than a few individual stars. The value of hard work became manifest when the final count showed 1916 first with lggyg points, 1915 right behind with 1275, While '17 and '18 totaled 105 and 55M, respectively.

As we learn it Ji' Q ' . here, mainly the fundamentals, we 'E' Q x px vskx t get but a glimpse of its fascination, a I , ' it jg ' glimpse Just large enough to reveal what ' 1 X 't g,1,gi'- ' lies beyond. We struggle patiently with , , if if' i f Q1 the rudiments of the game and thereby A- T ' ifl ' gain a keen appreciation of its worth' and 1 A ' a real admiration for the men who play it as it should be played. And once ar- ., rived at that position we are irrevocably . . heldg we maintain henceforth and for IM ' ' . -,I s.-.,,..l always, that polo is indeed the king of 1 ' , . :tx "' . . I ,!-- -a.. ......-...t..i- - .-.- .-v-:grad . , M- ,og-, . A----N . f ' sports, and we have arguments to prove it. If you have ever witnessed a well played game between evenly matched teams, your most poignant impression has probably been of the reckless speed of the thing. Faster than any halfback ever ran with the way clear to his goal, faster than the dash and pursuit of hockey, is the rush of the ponies, up the field and down, back and forth, until your blood runs riot and you can't sit still, but run along the side lines, crazy to be following the ball out there with the rest of them. Frankly, we doubt if there is a greater joy on earth than that of hearing the loud crack of the mallet against ball, and of seeing the shining white sphere bounding and leaping ahead, the blue sky above you, the green grass beneath, and in your heart the fierce joy of glorious, headlong motion. However, speed is not all by any means. 'If one's mount is not obedient to the slightest touch or tension, if he is not as quick to stop as to start, if you cannot keep his nose always after tl1e ball, then all the speed in the world will not win for you. And so one of the big features in the game, to the average man is this opportunity of learning to ride and control a polo pony. Of course, you have yourself to control in addition. There is no other sport in which teamwork and a perfect understanding between players count for so much, To become an efHcient player, one must primarily be a good rider, and in the hottest scrimmage, must never forget his pony, . Next, constant practice with capable instruction in all branches of the game is absolutely necessary. Experts, we believe, are born, not made. Coolness at most critical moments, quickness and accuracy of shooting, a natural aptitude for per- ceiving the direction of play and properly meeting it, a faculty of knowing instinctively when to go into a mixup and when to stay out 5 such are some of the requirements demanded of men worthy of being named as of premier calibre. The game is very simple. It is played, in brief, on a firm turf field three hundred, yards long, with ponies, mallets, a white wooden ball., and several brightly colored shirts with men to wear them. Two cone-shaped posts are set up eight yards apart at each end, and the whole object is to get the ball between them by proper utilization of ponies and sticks. To this end there is placed behind each goal a gentleman of color, whose pleasant function it is to wave as flag and smile happily at every successful shot. The essential spirit of polo, however, is not to be found in any rules or regulationsg - it existed long before such things were thought of. Born in the torrid heat of India, the game was appropriated by British Q85 Eserermwiwzmnesme i ohicers who brought it back with them to Eng- land, and introduced it to an enthusiastic army. Polo was notknown at the Academy un- til 1895. It is not strange that the game did not at once become overwhelmingly popular, because at that time, cavalry horses and Mc- Clellan saddles were used. Indeed, at present, we can do little less than wonder that men so equipped and mounted could derive any profit and pleasure at all from it. The possibilities of the sport became gradually recognized, how- ever, and in 1900 a decided impetus was im- parted to its progress by the purchase of thirty western ponies. The class of Nineteen- Three was the Erst to take up polo with enthusiasm. Twelve additional ponies were acquired in the spring of that year and one match played with' a visiting team. None of the succeeding classes have allowed interest to die down, and the wave of popularity which spread through the country a year or two ago A- . has been reflected at Wlest Point by a further increase in the size of the stables, and in the number of men turning out for the squad. It is almost exclusively a First Class privilege, work before that time being limited to dismounted practice in the hall. The opportunity to play has always been looked forward to impatiently by the ridoids, and its arrival eagerly taken advantage of. Nineteen-Sixteen has proven no exception to the rule. About March Hrst, in our second class year, a meeting of all in- terested was called and, as a first step toward the organization of a squad, DeWitt was elected manager. Many of us doubtless saw ourselves already dashing around on the ner- vous little ponies, -but such aspirations were not to be realized for many months. A brand new stunt in teaching the game had been prepared for our special benefit, and so the first time we innocently reported to the riding hall we were formally introduced to dismounted polo. It was a great little sport-no doubt about that. Those mythical centaurs of old, half horse half man, could have played it to perfection. For weeks and weeks we stuck to Uhr Eliirzi llrzznn dismounted polo , three men on a team, and armed with sawed- off mallets which quite I often would miss the ball and land, very .

Seriously enough, Almusi 21 Guzzi! Q86 ae grammar mi an ra are however, this un- doubtedly taught us a lot of valuable things about polo. The pur- pose back of it all was to inculcate in every man an idea of how to play each position properly, and to dem- onstrate the useless- ness of rushing wildly around after the ball. Otherwise, this ele- mentary strategy and T teamwork would had making at Earlzhanhrr ' to haffe been taught to ' , us while mounted and busy learning our ponies, and it would have been a harder and longer task than it was. VVhen summer came, practice took on a distinctly new aspect. It required no small sacrifice of the many pleasures of First Class Camp, and some of the days were hot, un- bearably so, when the River seemed to be just made for swimming in. On the other hand, with work starting on the flats, the spell of the game began to get into our blood, its call proved stronger than tennis or spooning, or canoeing, and so, though some fell by the way- side, others filled their places, and the squad throve and grew stronger. During the restiof the year, practice was carried on regularly every Wednesda.y and Saturday. Teams were made up which played the ofhcers and each other, and about the middle of January we started a series of matches with the clubs of the Indoor Polo League of New York and New' Jersey. These games were not limited to the members of the first team, but practically every man on the squad had a chance. On the twenty-second, our crack three, McBride, H. L., Smith, C. C., and Whitson, defeated the Durland Cock Robins, 10-6, in a fast, exciting match. The week following, the Brooklyn Lavenders won from a team made up of XCaperton,,Woodward and DeWitt. YVe came back with a vengeance, however, on Feb. 5th, when Rafferty, Walsh and Pickering squashed the Essex Mosquitosg the count was 12 to SM. Games have been scheduled for every Saturday throughout the rest of the winter and the spring, and the most interesting part of the polo season still lies before us. - U Ghz lfing nf Gbrrthnnr GBEIINPH 287 ff- J 'Q ' - " ' ' x"' " 'kb Jfhtfy, W!

Undoubtedly, the noisy worshippers of the great god Furlough expected this ditty to have a most chilling effect upon us poor benighted second classrnen, who had nothing better to look forward to than a summer at that Well known resort, West Point- on-the-Hudson. - But their calculations went far astray. For, as they have by this time themselves learned, after that redoubtable second class course, a summer at West Point or any other place where there Were no text-books in chemistry, philosophy, or the allied tortures in sight, was a prospect too alluring to be marred by any such prophecies. So, on June 14th, with joy in our hearts We migrated across the plain, leaving behind us as we Went a Well deined trail of various and sundry household effects. But camp was not properly inaugurated yet. In order to impress upon the newly fledged yearlings the importance of this event we proceeded to don our full dress and march over in a military manner. After considerable unauthorized delay while the new makes tied four-in-hands and other sketchy looking knots in their sashes, the band struck up "Hail, Hail. the Gangs All Here," and headed by the Com himself, on his prancing steed, we marched across Post No. 1 and "Our Camp" was started. - Oh, yes, it was our camp to do as we pleased with-under the -er-direction of the Department of Tactics.

So hav- ing determined to enjoy ourselves, we proceeded to do the same, despite all official attempts to discourage us. First class drills we soon found to be no deadbeat, but nevertheless they were sufficientlyinteresting and absorb- ing to cause the long mornings to flit by very quickly. And although our instructors might not admit it, we can't help feeling that our first class summer added considerably to our pro- Hciency in things military, It is true that we've all been threatened with court martial if we have the crust to go in the Field Artillery. Vile have been assured times without number that as Doughboy officers we'd be a disgrace to the militia. And as for drawing maps-well, one of our mussy road sketches would be about as valuable as a copy of the Police Gazette to a person who actually wished to find his way to the Cross Roads via Perry,s Feed Store. But justthe same we insist that we did learn something. VVe learned to curry a horse for one thing. VVe also learned to ride a frisky polo pony while balancing a drawing board, alidade, if and several pencils in one hand and an f ice-cream cone in the other. But above all we discovered that there is a lot more to this job of being an army ofhcer than appears on the outside, and that so far we have scarcely learned enough to realize how little we do know about it. However, We are assured that after about n years of experience and sundry courses in different service schools, We shall really begin to know something. Wihich, of course, is considerable satisfaction. E112 illlightg Ellie ilinmlg , 4 -... - Au. ,- i. . p, V V " V J But how about our spare time?

In pre- vious camps we had been wont to re- g a r d r a i ny d a y s a s a s p e c i al dis- p e n s a t i o n granted by the Weather man Y for our special benefit. We would spend most of our time whistling the "Missouri National," and other- wise trying to persuade the elusive little thunder clouds to come and play in our back yard for a while, for in those days, a rainy day meant a deadbeat-a respite from the exaspera- ting schedule of drills, parades and Whatnot. But nothing like that last summer, Not a-tall. Rain was so common that it was not permitted to interfere with the schedule. WVe got so used to drilling in the rain tha.t We all developed web feet. In fact, the advent of a real dry day made everyone feel quite peevish at the idea of not getting his morning swim down to the mess hall. Whoever was running the weather must surely have been in the pay of the T. D., because when the sun was per- mitted to shine it was as a rule between seven and twelve-thirty a. m. However, on those rare occasions when no afternoon shower occurred, what Was there to do? Well, there was polo for the Squire,s elect, golf for the boodle lovers, tennis for the really energetic, canoeing for the back-to-nature class, and last, but far from least, good old mattress drill-the one and only solace of Abe and his fellow sufferers from hookworm. VVe forgot to mention tea fighting, cake hunting and their allied sports. But, after all, these latter activities are no more characteristic of camp than they are of barrack life. ilinntlirk Allrg-Ahnhv uf 1112 Q'Lnm'5 0911111 'mug Afternnnn- -Z-liurrsinnz 291 AQLQQ 1 pw, .h t kEa fr A493 at N 3,11 ,Kiss-,f 5 1-""'3 ifiifiif' fi i,17"4f 'l"ff1fi"i'ff2 su -W . ff!

We must not forget the famous boat races which Hnally developed into an inter-com- pany tournament, from which the "E" Co. crew emerged triumphant, despite the super-- fluous weight which it carried in the person of its redoubtable coxswain, Spence Merrell. But,,as ever in the days of our childhood, the boy who furnished the bat and glove was captain of the baseball team, so Spence, being the medium through which his crew obtained their striking red caps and the still more important boodle fight which immediately fol- g lowed every race, could not be denied his rightful position as coxswain, and that arrangement was not without its merits, for before every race, Spence would announce to his doughty men, i'Fellows, immediately after the race a collation will be served to the victori- ous "E', Co. crew whether you win or' not. " Wlhereat, the lusty oarsmen would redouble their efforts. Gloomy Gus even dove overboard at the finish of one race in the most ap- proved movie actor marmer, gaining "GH!Pm'5 HIP IUPH1lf5HiH15" great applause from the watching femmes, and a severe bumping from less appreciative spectators who were thought to belong to that "rough 'B' Co. outit. 3' Yes, despite the rain and the efforts of the T.D., we managed to have several experiences both in and out of line of duty which we will not forget for some time. In the pages which follow are chronicled some of the episodes and experiences which we consider most worthy to be remembered.

That is one of the 5, moments when you wish that you had hived French and Spanish so that you would not exhaust your vocabulary so soon. Yes, those markers are 1 as fickle as women. They just raise your hopes to throw them down again. Why, if that plebe hadn't given me that miss at 300, I'd have qualified. But what's the use? It,s all over now, and then who knows, she may like it for a safety pin, anyhow. Target practice, the most important part of the training of the soldier is very sys- tematically carried-out at West Point. Starting with the plebe year, when the Kaydet acts as a marker and thus acquires a knowledge of the size of targets and the system of Bring, the work progresses steadily up to the climax-record firing in First Class year. Probably the most tedious and least appreciated part of the work were those tiresome position and aiming drills in plebe fall. e little realized then that three years later we would be doing the same thing voluntarily in our spare time, in the eHort to acquire a coveted crossed rifles and wreath. Then next, we had sub-calibre in the gym. That was more interesting, for we could see the results. Then finally, long-looked-for First Class Camp came and we went down to the range. Without exception, target was the most popular drill in camp. Everybody was boning it. "Ready on the right? Ready on the left? Ready all along?" Up came the targets and the fusillade began. YVhen the smoke had cleared away at the end of the summer and we were able to count our score, we were pleased to ind that we had thirty-three experts, twenty-six sharpshooters, and fifty-seven marksmen, while only four men failed to qualify. This was considerably better than the record of the only preceding class that had shot the same course. Naturally, We felt satisied with our work. The target practice this year was all that we could have asked for. It was marked by a total absence of quill, and everyone seemed laboringrto make it as interesting for us as conditions would permit. Whenever there was any doubt, we always received the benefit.

But much to our dismay, the plans did not meet with the prevailing idea in the T.D. of what an illumination should be, so it Was decided that no celebration would commemorate the striking of tents in old Camp Larned. I believe the fundamental element-the desire, not to say the iirm determina- tion to surpass all preceding illuminations, received its birth in this disappointment, and it was with this spirit that we approached the task of celebrating the end of our last camp on the banks of the Hudson. The task was no easy one, because aside from all the tedious labor of planning and bringing into material being the ideas conceived by the geniuses of the class, it was necessary to win the consent of the Tactical Department for the stu- pendous undertaking. VVe Hnally gained the approval of the Com, but there seemed to be a feeling of "we're from Missouri, youive got to show. us," hovering over the T.D.g not that our abilities were questioned, but the general opinion Was that we had undertaken something a good deal beyond our capacity. 295 'r '- A- '. .

Never before was an Illumination planned on such a huge and diverse scale, and we believe that all present will be unanimous in the de- cision that it far surpassed all previous entertain- ments of its kind. Its success was due in a large measure to the perfect and thorough organization and division of responsibilities, and to the earnest and loyal co-operation of the 'Q""91-in +V Wir- 3, . . corps and its friends. The general plan of attack was a committee consisting of .two representatives from each com- pany, to decide on general plans. It was finally agreed to ostracize the T. D. from its stronghold and advantageous point of observation, and convert said territory into an old time county fair, and to introduce for the first. time in history a bit of the life of the Gay Wlhite YVay into the general parade, in the way of an up-to-the-minute cabaret. Having agreed on this gen- eral plan, three committees with revo- lutionary powers were appointed, viz.: Committee on Decorations, Committee on Entertainment, and last but not least, a Committee on Refreshments. I will mention the Committee on Decorations Hrst, because to its lot fell a great share of the construction work which was an essential feature in order to - eradicate the military aspect of Camp Geo. B. Davis, and build in its place structures conducive to a lighter, more jovial vein.

Department was persuad- ed to part with some of its property and labor which were converted to our use. About two days before the date set for the celebration, wagons loaded with lumber, greens, tables, chairs, flags, bunting, and what not, paraded into camp and dumped their cargoes. Gradually,things . began to take shape. The lofty towers of a roller coaster arose, under Sasseis direction, in the tacs, front yard, and under their very eyes. Across the way, Al King was busy constructing his games of chance, Scofield, with his mystic maze, Atom'Snow, with his shooting gallery, and Kane with his refreshment booths. In the general parade, an immense dance floor was being built, and throughout camp everyone was busily engaged in nailing up Ilags, bunting, greens, and other decorations. Uhr 'Bula Hung Eallvt As able exponents in the refreshment line, we had selected Fraser, Martin and lVIerrell, with emphasis on the Merrell. This noted triumvirate formed a coalition with Sergeant McDonald and Jack fthe imperial ruler of the mess hallj, and a feast fit for the gods was arranged, consisting of ice. cream, cakes, candy, lemonade, peanuts, popcorn, and other delicious characteristics of an old time county fair. In order to amuse our guests, the Entertainment Committee, under the able direction of Campbell, lVIartin, Blanks and Moses, and our ever loyal friends, lVIr. Egner and the band, prepared a program of high class vaudeville and cabaret acts, comparable only with Broadwayls best. Much time, labor and patient effort were expended in bringing these acts up to the standard of excellence that characterized their performance on Illumination Night. Too much credit cannot be given to those who gave up spooning engagements, P. S.-ing parties, and sacrificed their time for many afternoons before the final presentation to the public. About '7 :30, the crowd began to gather on the camp parade, waiting in eager expectation to be admitted to the inner shrine. The stern, military aspect of the exterior revealed little of the gay frivolity that was soon to reign within. At eight o,clock, the gate keeper was overpowered, and the crowd surged in through the triumphal arch erected on the entrance. Many an oh! and gasp of surprise issued from the horde as it was steered by ushers down "AH Company street, which had been completely roofed over with evergreens through which twinkled colored lights, suggesting a woodland track through some fairy kingdom. From the far end of this lane came the rumble of wheels from Sassels Roller Coaster, and shouts of joy and peals of laughter from those who had already struck the Gay White Way. On leaving "A" Company street, the Gay White Way loomed up before one with all its dazzling display of bright colored lights, flags and bunting. Here a real Coney Island had sprung up, with all its attendant charms and attractions. 297 awk f'5,.'e?'i 5 2 Wkxggqgcx A for-:1:..,1Z:,.. -ss, .l ui 7 7A,.f52:.e.g1y ,ji -1 ,JJ NH 4559 ? , 'glial 's.T25T-gil' ,ia ' V RT 1 T' r.: ,,,,g- -,f f ' ' SNS , .. - frm- A E, ' - H 1422-f - af E515 rl ,Y .X ' iLlf'H1l.llFu:n il. i .. .-. . i- ..

Laughing, shrieking crowds almost overpowered the pop- corn, peanut, and lemonade stands, while others, just as enthusiastic and boisterous, thronged the dens of chance. Turning to the right and proceeding eastward along the Gay Wlhite VVay, our road was blocked by the crowds who were endeavoring to swindle Al King out of his breast plates, bell buttons and other trinkets at the Hit-the-Baby Stand. Still farther on, a jovial mob was amusing itself at the Hit-the- Coon Booth, where a real live black baby plunged into a pontoon boat filled with water whenever one of the fair sex came within a foot of the target. Proceeding still farther on our journey, our way was arrested by Frank Scofield's "Lost Again Maze', from which issued peals of laughter and shrieks of those who had ventured in but were having difficulty in getting out. At the end of the Gay White Vtlay, on historic old Fort Clinton parapet, the sound of the guns once more rang out, for here Atom Snow had established a first-class shooting gallery, where our friends were accredited with perfect scores by means of an electric bell which oblig- ingly rang whether fair damsel made a hit or not. About nine o'clock, the jovial hum of the Gay Wlhite VVay was silenced for an instant by the announcement that the Never Again Cabaret was about to open. The band struck up a lively tune, and the stream of laughing, jostling humanity was ,turned toward "CH Company street, the main entrance to the cabaret. Soon a dazzling radiance of light shot upward, announcing that the Never Again Cabaret was ready to do business. An immense dance floor covered the general parade, and was circled by a railing covered with bunting. At the middle of one side and opposite the main flags and entrance, the band was enthroned in a bower of flags which reflected back the sweet tones of a dreamy waltz, or the sharp lively notes of a fox trot. At regular intervals around the floor stood lofty pillars decorated with greens, between which hung strings of Japanese lanterns and multi- colored lights. Circling the dance floor, were arranged tables and chairs where the dancers and spectators could partake of the refreshments served by waiters in spotless white. After two or three dances, the floor was cleared, and Round One of the cabaret commenced. From that time until after midnight, dances and cabaret acts alternated to the great delectation of all present. All the work spent in preparing the festival was amply justified in the huge success which the affair turned out to be. For fear of throwing too many bouquets at ourselves, let it suffice to say that we had realized our ambition of ending 'f0ur Campi' in a blaze of glory. It is our humble opinion that Nineteen-Sixteen's Camp Illumination will be a happy memory in the minds of all present for some time to come. Q98 ' gags-fkilfi.

The file that wrote those never camped in a swamp and never had to dig a thirty- foot irrigation ditch to drain twelve square feet of soil upon which to lay his manly form. Nor did that man ever pick out a beautiful little hollow to make the neatest little bed you ever saw and then wake up in the middle of the night with a delusion that he was a survivor of the Lusitania, to End a pouring thunder storm in progress and his bed making a very creditable swimming pool. Unquestionably, the pastoral life "en militaire U has certain very strong drawbacks. We com- muned with nature for six days, and in lieu of beds of roses and the music of tinkling brooks we had haystacks with thistles, and brazen lunged fifers. But to return to the stern tale of war. Weill have to hand it to that Colonel X. He had Jeb Stuart and wall and elling for help when it came to getting over P 8 ' Y the ground. VVe irst encountered our friend 1 the enemy between Garrison and Peekskill. lXIuch to the Tactical disgust, Chipmunk Ellis took the wrong road, -thereby causing Colonel X to be surprised, which is an awful thing to do in a Field problem. Before he could recover from his surprise, the gallant gray army, fol- lowing the lead of C2 Smith, Dixie Walker, Tully and other members of our daring advance cavalry, had swept through and captured the French Restaurant at Peekskill. This position was held until, the White Army having rallied and advanced under a screen of Tactical oflicers, it was deemed best to withdraw to the State Camp at Peekskill. This withdrawal was enqected in good order and a base of supplies was immediately established in the local soft drink and candy emporium. But such could not last, and we were rudely torn away to answer the stern call of Hstablesf, That is to say, most of us were. Some, how- ever, overcome with ginger pop and emo- tion, having aban- doned themselves to the protection of the great god hlorpheus, peacefully slept through. For those, their dreams of fur- lough or graduation leave were shattered by a hard hearted O. D. with a summons to appear before the greater god-The Com.

While speaking of stables it might be well to mention that it was at this camp that we first encountered that awe inspiring product of system and efficiency, the P. M. E. picket line. After a summerls experience we had gradually become accustomed to traveling through country liberally placarded with little tags purporting to give the necessary information for the construction of a combined position sketch. We had finally grown used to the P. M. E. tent, an affair that rivaled the Big Top of Barnum SL Bailey's, and always brought an admiring crowd of natives to see the show. It was a show, too, when they tried to piece together those wonderful products of Kaydet labor at the end of the day's work. A really excellent road map would suddenly end in a straight line leading straight to camp, and the peculiar thing was - M V Y g I I that this usually oc- P ' curred at a place where ice cream cones l ' were for sale. But we digress. To return to 1 the subject of Art, ' 1 ' shades of von Moltke, MMMA r- r ' l and Bismarck! The whole Prussian systein had nothing on the Engineers. Imagine our surprise when on arriving in camp we were greeted by a large sign bearing a hand and the legend " To lille Picket Chimp mugrnnt 301 ,WW sas- 1 .tara-.W ' A ...I - , , 4. me fa. tffigra ---. i Fw rm--1:--l.lr.f,g .rff-.

Also a little printed slip of rules Was issued for the reg- ulation of the lives of the amateur Engineers during the next twenty-four hours. Beside these the rules of lNIarcus Aurelius were as naught. I say it looked like a graveyard and in truth it was a graveyard. lNIore First Class Xmas leaves departed this life in that stretch of ground than ever appeared on the casualty lists. The mortality was frightful! From Peekskill we passed uneventfully along the route of all practice marches. It is hardly necessary to mention the itineraryg Blohansic, hIuscoot, lVIahopac, and Oscawana. Soirees and good sport followed each other and were intermingled so it was hard to dis- tinguish one from another. At the time it appeared as though the soirees were proliic as fleas on the proverbial bird dog, while the good times were like water holes in Arizona. But if such were the case we relished them with the emotions with which the fainting traveler hails the shimmer of water in the desert. Looking back on it from this perspective, the soirees have blended themselves into a drab background which brings out more strongly the many and unforgetable and pleasant incidents of the Hike. Those little Tactical talks at night were a never failing source of humor, humor which the unlucky subject hardly appreciated, but which the rest of us did.

He did not quite die of the shock. Wie will also carry as one of our cherished memories, the Venfi, Vficli, Vfici style in which the Inspector described his capture by Cadet Lieu- tenant R. IJ. Campbell. It has often been hinted by the jealous ones that that Lieuteuancy was rank hush money. The fact remains, however, that Potter made a coup cl'etat,' capturing at one fell swoop, one commanding general, one adjutant, and one orderly, dismounting them and setting them on a wall under guard until rescued by an umpire. The same day, a.n intrepid little band of three rode all the way around the enemy .and made a surprise attack on his artillery. The enemy, however, not appreciating being disturbed in his sleep by blank cartridges fired at ten feet 302 D .. - G" 's "f' "I ' Ji.: 57 Walt? i' f . .za e f If 12' -l ,W -ers C X- -r - "4fi'Sl-igfggigggf es:- -...iii -- range, started to throw rocks. Whe1'e- upon an umpire interfered, "What! That damn gray cavalry again, eh! Tell them to run along about their business." Such is the reward of being a hero. Yes, the real place for excitement was with the cavalry. There was no monotony there. Trust the Squire to keep things moving. Those cavalry camps were things to be remembered. After surviving a night sleeping head down hill between two lines of horses, E. a man felt on a parwith a veteran of the gas attacks at Ypres. One night, out at Muscoot, the cavalry camp awoke with a strong impression that something was wrong. In fact, they were almost certain something was wrong. When a bunch of restless horses have rooted up a picket line and pulled it over to the place where your tent should be, and then proceed to eliminate that obstruction from their path, somehow or other your sixth sense tells you that all is not well. That was the situation when the cavalry camp awoke. Naturally, some of the more impatient spirits started to speak harshly to the poor tired beasts. The O. C., thinking that mutiny had broken out, appeared immediately on the scene. "What,s all this damned racket down here! You sound like a bunch of militialw "Well, sir, thereis a horse sitting right on my tent and he won't move, sir. I don't care if I do wake Captain Lindsay. He ought to know better than to put men to sleep in a place like this. I never did like the cavalrylw . Hank was past all sense of camp discipline. The O. C., being X Blanks Easg, Ent mai!

Never were truer words spoken. From start to finish, we re- ceived the best of treatment on all sides. And the climax, the grand finale of it all, came at Mahopac. Those people outdid themselves. The dance and entertainment that they turned out in our honor made us feel like saviors of our country. But to return to our friend Colonel X. As I have said before, he was some ground coverer. We licked him one gpm. qppm Ai, Qfafi day, only to End him again ahead of us twice as strong the next. This finally wore down our gallant little army so that after six days of hiking, advancing and retreating, one morning we found ourselves again on the banks of the Hudson, oppo- site West Point. The umpires told us that in the face of superior numbers it would be necessary for us to withdraw across the river to our base at West Point. Were we down- hearted?-No! Across the river was a bath, a bed, and a real meal, with our feet under a table. Never had West Point before, and probably never will West Point again, look so good. That was the most happy and contented army that was ever forced to retreat from an enemy's territory. As we climbed the hill from the ferry, footsore and weary, We had to admit that, taking it by and large, the Big Hike was a Soiree. But the man is narrow minded indeed who will not admit that he is wiser for having been on it. During that week we most of us had our first taste of real soldiering, and we shall be better officers for it. We have been there and we know. When, as ofEcers, we glibly give the command "Pack,', to a mountain battery, we will be able to appreciate the emotions of the sweating men who are trying to pack a mule which Wonlt stand still. We know the temptation to forget the beast while we attend to the wants of the man. We know the mental feelings of the Doughboy who. after march- ing eight miles or so, is asked to charge a hill a couple of hundred feet high. Wfe are better men for the knowledge. If the hike did nothing more than to teach us how little we knew, it would have served its purpose. But it did more than that, it taught us the essential of real soldiering, the human element. As I have said before, we returned a wiser lot of men, and we hope that when we ourselves hold the reins of authority, our judgment of those below us may be tempered by memories of our experiences during the six days of the Big Hike.

Followed a few muttered curses, then more shadowy forms passed down the streets, using moral suasion and a cot stick to rouse the First Class. No, this was not an incipient mutiny. N ineteen-Sixteen was merely preparing for the an- nual trip to Fort Wright. The decree had gone forth from the Powers-That-Be, stating that the air of four A. lVI. was very unhealthy for Yearlings. Therefore, we were deprived of the time-honored pleasure of dragging them, and were not even allowed to use alarm clocks for fear of disturbing the sleeping beauties. After much fumbling in he dark and many improper expressions directed at nothing in particular and everything in general, We formed by companies on the parade. That is to say, some of us did. Spence Nlerrell had to collect his apothecary shop, and Nladame couldn't find his cap cover. VVith much suffering by the makes and a few caustic remarks by the O.

The trip down the Hudson was as uneventful as a qgnmuguml Sunday morning in Chapel after a twelve oiclock hop. For once there was no one to make fun of our Daddy. Everyone was sleeping. The sight of the big city, however, brought us back to earth again. Navy Game, Xmas Leave, Graduation, there were air castles galore. But we passed steadily by, and the water looked so wet that even the " C2 H did not propose a plan to swim ashore and join the crowd at the Island. Once on the Sound we began really to go to sea. The wind was fresh and the Sound is large. The Meigs started to go through some antics that would have done old Sherman proud. Some of the iles who an hour before had been kicking about the size of the P. M. E. lunches now began to wish that food was not a human necessity. All that goes down must come up. For further demonstration of this exception to the law of gravi- tation, see Pickering and the Commissioned Staff. By no means the whole class was seasick fthe unfortunates wished that were the casej, but we all were glad when the lights of Fisher's Island showed ahead. In a few minutes, the boat was fast at the dock and a tired and hungry one hundred and twenty men were marching up the hill to the barracks. After searching vainly for elusive suit cases and dragging them up to the second floor of one barracks, only to learn that we lived on the second floor of the other, we at last got settled. Most of us turned in, but some incorrigibles, like VVoody, Bruno and Ham, had already donned their full dress coats and were off for the hotels amd Society.

So ut on your most comfortable blouse? 51 f . 53 ,l 1 d 1 p lv - 1 ' A an come a ong. . w il Let us enter the sacred precincts. Here, of an evening, gathers that small, indomitable 1 Q , -- , band of the faithful, devoted to Mexican athletics and King McAneny's best brand of rope. L Qj Throwing the Bull is their amusement, and smoking the rope their protection-limiting the Ag A ' an membership in the charmed circle to the hardy and the brave alone. WVho indeed but a courageous-soul could smoke Kaydet Store stogies all evening without quailing, and who but the hardy could endure them? Here, too, Hourishes another species of ram azvis, the checker fiend. Look now. In the yonder corner, Sergts. Vveyand and VVilson are engaged in that game-they always play together-they are great rivals. Intense quiet pervades the place save when some novice noisily ventures in and commences a strangling cough, due to the rope, for the rope gathers strength with age. At the magazine-covered table Cno mistaking it, for it is the only onel, Judge Styer is presiding. Crowded close about him are Johns, Hibbs, Britton, Sharrer, and Riche. The Judge in low tones is discussing the merits of bootsg he hates horseiiesh, but nevertheless he knows all about boots. He knows all about everything, does the Judge, he's an engineer. On the wall behind this eminent legal authorityis back, hangs the Honor Roll inscribed with the names of those policed at riding. Strange how undesirous of honor some men are. ' On the right of the door, before the list indicating choice of service, stands James de Barth iYalbacl1, a de- plorable picture-I mean a picture of dejection. He is weeping copiously but silently. Alas, some Wag has signed James de Barth up for the Marine Corps-Hrst, second and third choices, there is no eraser at hand, and James is worriedg therefore, the deluge. Here comes Newgarden looking natural, that is to say absent-minded. He pushes the weeping Toohey aside and solemnly registers his three choices and departs. Red's tears at once give way to suppressed mirth. He is laughing at Georgie, who has absent-mindedly confused this list with the Ordnance sheet and put himself on Your wife's if you are a Hmakel' and he is a "buck," 311 Pk A, ,hr ., jx P-3-. - -fakerfv, , ,, , me,-1,1 H ' . f- . -ff. - f7' .-1-affix ' ' "3 . 4 flswaf f f- '-1 22fs9:f iwfff- ..,, f "!' 1irsqv1.'i.-Ilyy,-' PM , ' , -,.-- ' NTT: f-S ,se ,l-WM ,Z ' if 1 , --K' ' '-'Q' ' "4 ' ' ' ' "5'l"l ' lt" ' ' J' sw., sag?-' .

And directly above on same list, somebody has signed Johnnie IrVills up for the Remount Depot. The clock ticks on. Judge Styer's throaty gutterals have given place to the harsher accents of Johns, who, with solemn mien and flashing eye, recites in low tones the following touching verse by Sergt. Archibald: Oh, I am an engineer, And am so very bright, If I wasn't an engineer, VVould I be at the club tonight? This is met with a dead silence, implying the absolute correctness of Johns' views. Through the haze pro- duced by the rope, glows and glimmers the auburn head of Red 0'I-Iare. Red is ensconced in the corner by himself. His countenance wears a beatific expression as he gazes on the picture of the Durham Ox, presented by the agricultural members from Wisconsin. But Red isnit admiring the fine points of the Ox, nor has he confused this noble animal with Bull Durham. No, indeed! Red has been reading the Coast Artillery Record and now is just piping. Time passes. The Hell Cats are heard coming up the road. Simultaneously, Judge Styer and seven other members fling eight pieces of rope in the general direction of the ash tray-with varying results. Slowly the Judge rises and starts toward the door, reluctantly the others follow suit. Jesse Tarpley is the last of the twenty. With eyes upturned and with meditative manner he follows along. VVhat is he thinking of, anyhow? Of the proposed increase in the Field Artillery or of what a nice place this club would be if there were only pool and billiard tables here? Perhaps, though, he isnlt thinking. Appearances are deceitful. Jesse closes the door behind him, and the club is empty save for the slowly-disappearing haze of smoke, due to the rope, which drifts here and there in the dim light.

A. are twofold: first to promote right thinking and right speaking among the men of the corps, and second to take the place of the usual clubs and societies of a "cit" college. Its membership includes the whole corps. To amuse and entertain are the functions of most college organiza- tionsg here, that duty devolves on the Y. M. C. A., and well does it fulill the diflicult task. First, there is Kendrick Hall, with its magazines, newspapers, periodicals, and the Victrola, the popularity of which is attested by the number of Kaydets found there daily. Next, there are the regular Sunday evening lectures. It may be lese 'majcstc to say that these are amusing, though some certainly have been, and all are instructive to a degree. In line with the entertainment idea comes the movies at Cullum. The shows presented by the Y. M. C. A. last year were -of an unusually high order. Throughout the drowsy days of summer camp, the tent devoted to this association was always Hlled with men reading, writing, and playing the Victrola. To Wlalbach goes much credit for his excellent selection in the way of records, the music of which has lightened many a weary hour for tl1e birds on the area since the return to barracks. All this is a side issue from the true object for which the Y. M. C. A. was founded. The promotion of Christian ideals and Christian methods of life throughout the corps has been, and ever will remain its one great purpose. It accomplishes that plan in part, by the Sunday night meetings, some of which are of a strictly religious nature, and by means of organized groups for Bible Study. Each class has a spe- cially selected course for study and discussion The fourth class groups are led by upper- classmen: the upperclass groups by officers. Many thanks are due Chaplain Silver and the officers whose united eEorts and loyal devo- tion to the work have gone far to making it the success that it is. During the past year, over two hundred and fifty men were enrolled in the n, various groups and it is to be hoped that in the year to come even more may be enlisted.

BLANKS HIS year the Dialectie Society celebrates the centennial anniversary of its organiza- tion, and completes one hundred years of an existence dedicated to the amusement and entertainment of the Corps of Cadets. It was organized in May, 1816, as the order creating it reads, "for the purpose of im- provement in debate, composition, and recitationf' under the name of the Amosphic Society. In 1818, the Philomathean, a club created for a similar purpose, was organized and, in 1819, the two merged as the Ciceroniang the name, Dialectic Society, being taken in 1824. For many years thereafter, this society was the guiding spirit of the corps, and when perplexing questions of corps honor or of academy traditions arose, they were referred to it for debate and final adjudication. It was during that period, that the names of such men as Grant, Sheridan, and Lee appear upon its rolls of membership. VVith the approach of the Civil Wlar, such questions as "Is Slavery a Crime?!' were hotly contested, and to the old Dialectic Hall still cling memories and traditions of the great men and soldiers who, within its ancient walls, argued that momentous question, upon the answer to which, it seemed, depended the life of a nation. After the Civil IVar, the society declined in importance, and for some years there are no records of its existence. However, in 1871, it sprang into brief but lurid prominence by starting a fire which burned off the fourth floor of barracks at two a. m., when the tempera- ture was four degrees below zero. Its next efforts were directed towards the production of THE HOWITZER, which appeared as a paper, and was read to the corps one hundred days before J une. Somewhat later, THE HONVITZER became a printed book, and the Dialectic turned its efforts to the production of a play to be given each year at this time. At present, it maintains a reading room in barracks and is responsible for the produc- tion of the Color Line Concerts every Sunday night during the Annual Encampment and of the Hundredth Night Play one hundred days before .I une. 316 .f ..

His casting was only too successful, for in a day or two there were no less than seven different articles reposing in the editorial sanctum, all of which were most eifusive in their unstinted praise of the production. By some strange coincidence, it turned out that eight members of THE HOWITZER Board had had something to do with producing the show! Being unable to choose between the articles, we compromised by quoting from our esteemed contemporary, the Army and Navy Register. "The crowning event of the week was the Hundredth Night Play on Saturday evening, when the corps presented the musical comedy, in two acts, "The Wasp-Waisted Vampires." 319 .Y . .-2 ,ass beige -ff: H'-L ' Q, -5-rs.-'alia-eg. im. .5 . , hw , ,,.....-.I-3,33 ?

Fraser, 316, and the music by Mr. Philip Egner, teacher of music at the Academy. The scene of the first act is the area of barracks, the curtain opening on a cool gray dawn, when the reveille gun awakens some drowsy cadets and cadettes. The year is 1946, and the suffragist movement has ad- vanced during the thirty years to the point that half the corps are 'girls in grey.' They transform the prosaic simplicity of the uniform by dainty little fem- inine touches, ribbons, trinkets, and so on, and look very fetching. Soon all the Tacs arrive on the scene Cgreat applausel, and each has an appropriate verse of a catchy song and amusing dialog which bring down the house. In the meantime, some tired cadets enter, descending by a realistic elevator, for after thirty years, military discipline has undergone some changes, and everybody does about as he or she pleases. c'Consternation is caused by the announcement that a committee from the United States Senate is due to arrive by airship to determine Whether West Point shall be abolished and turned into a theological seminary on account of the now accepted universal peace, which makes armies unnecessary. The ship is sighted, and the travelers descend by means of rope ladders in a most realistic manner. The committee is composed of Hon. Emma lVIilitant, Hon. Daisy Darling, Senators VVard Grafter, Ebenezer Ketchum, and Isadore Grabit. Officers and cadets alike resolve to entertain the visitors so engagingly that they shall be converted to the cause, and vote' for the continuance of the Academy. "In the second act, the First Class Country Club makes a most attractive scene, the Wide veranda of the club is shown, the members of the committee are seen sitting around little tables as they Watch 'an entertainment planned in their honor.

Stuari lllllllllllll ' Puig-Quant-Chnnntrg This motto is not a chance grouping of Words representing an ideal impossible of achievement. It was adopted after the Military Academy had been in existence for almost a century, and therefore represents a general standard that has been set by the graduates during all that timeq ' V ' So we may look back through the years, few or many, and see the VVest Pointer-steadfast in the performance of his duty, honorable in all of his dealings, ever ready to give the Hnal proof of his loyalty and devotion to his country. That is why it means something to be a graduate of the Military Academy 3 Why it means something to belong to the Corps of Cadets. The reputation of the Military Academy rests upon the standards established by its graduates, but these standards have their foundations in the ideals of the Corps of Cadets. The generations that have gone before have established these ideals. It is not sufficient merely to pass them along unimpaired. They must be improved, so that succeeding gen- erations shall inherit a still greater treasure. The Corps of Cadets of today is the custodian of the fair name of the iVIilitary Academy in future years. Only by safeguarding the ideals, by raising them still higher, can the corps discharge the obligation which rests upon it. 325 f - - - li ky g S- fl WJ 'J 6aNEg ltl' ' " 'l,i', ,,Js:fr .:t 1 -I int'-1-.tnirt...i:.'. .... . f -.... .P . 24057733 gf- Y1fif",np W. .-.1.-:..w3.w-..- "'gjZ'5 .259 'V "Ss H 'L-QQ ai.,1'F.'.3,.,E'i.?.,t..sw 152652. . .Q ,.tgf1,f95.,. ,j'751fLf.

H It is, too, a remarkable fact that the more varied and abundant our fare, the more privileged we feel to find fault with it. As the members of the corps are merely human beings Coften anilicted with slight exaggeration of the egoj, it would, of course, be folly to deny that the afore- mentioned sport lacks its adherents at Wfest Point. Wie would like to take this opportunity to state, however, that from long and careful observation we have discovered that the in- dividual who spends the most time and lung power in "cussing out" the hless Hall Slum, is the one who mistakes Childs' Restaurant for Rector's, the first time he gets a Christmas leave. Wfhile this is sinking in, it might interest the reader to glance at a couple of letters portraying the trials of the First Captain who, in 1836, was burdened with the task of arranging for the Cadet lVIess with a contractor. WEST POINT, Feb. 12, 1836. CADET HAGNER, CAPT., Comes CADETS. Dear Sir:-I have been painfully sensible for two or three weeks past that the quantity of provisions fur- nished for supper was increasing, while the number of Cadets in the Hall was decreasing. The subject is a dis- agreeable one to me, and I would gladly avoid any allusion to it, but a sense of duty to my family requires that I should meet it in a spirit of kind and respectful remonstrance. After the conversation I had with you last evening, I made it my duty to investigate the subject thoroughly. The results of my inquiries are as I state to you now: For the Hrst six weeks of my taking the contract, with an average number of two hundred and thirty, the quantity of bread sent into the Hall. for supper was about forty-eight loaves. For the last three or four weeks, with an average number of two hundred, the quantity of bread has been greater, running as high on one night as fifty-four loaves, whereas, in proportion to the quantity consumed the first six weeks, it ought not to have exceeded forty-two loaves. The increase in the quantity of butter has been in the same proportion. I will not 'say anything as to the cause of this great consumption at present. To the officers of the corps I appeal for justice, and if there be any practices inconsistent with the regulations, I trust they will suppress them. I shall ever be ready to receive any suggestions from you of changes in the mode of conducting the Hall, con- sistent with the regulations, by which your comfort would be promotedg and I trust I have not been unmindful of that duty. Encouraged by the results of the Hrst month. I thought I could agord to furnish your tables in better style, .and purchased for this purpose at considerable expense a set of silver spoons, which I intend to place on your tables in a few days. I will thank you to mention the subject of this note to the ofiicers of the corps. ' Very respectfully, Z. J. D. KINSLEY. To Ciinnr HAGNER, CAPT., Conrs CADETS. Dear Sir:-I received a note a few days ago, purporting to be from a member of the corps, in which certain changes were proposed in the fare of the Hall, which, he thought, would generally be acceptable to the corps, viz.: lst. Coffee on Tuesday and Friday evenings instead of tea. Qdi "StuHing and molassesi' on corn beef and soup days instead of pudding and sauce. To the first I have to observe that I cannot afford to give coffee more frequently than once a week-say on Wednesday-or any day you may agree upon. To the second I am willing to make the change here proposed-giving you two vegetables, potatoes and beets, with corn beef and pork, stuffing and molasses, on Monday and Saturday, and as usual on lYehnesday, sub- stituting stuffing and molasses for pudding and sauce. In case the navigation between this place and New York should not open by the time the quantity of molasses now on hand is consumed, I shall be obliged to give you pudding and sauce occasionally. I do not desi1'e this change on my own account, but if it is acceptable to the corps, I am willing to try it. Yours very respectfully, Feb. 23d C1836l Z. J. D.

It twinkles like the stars, it glitters like the glow-worm. All right for the light, sir. I' At the moment this story opens it was all right for, but not with, the light. Mr. VVeepus was gazing intently in his mirror. Beside it on the mantlepiece stood a jar marked "Beans Grease,', a comb with three healthy teeth, a well-advertised hair tonic, and a face cream whose label dwelt on its value as a beauty secret of the ancients. Even to the uninitiated observer it was plain to see that Mr. VVeepus was looking for results which close and op- timistic scrutiny failed to reveal. He had been engaged in the painstaking task of blazing a trail through a primeval forest of red bristles, of taming a most obstinate cowlick, and of removing an ample supply of golden freckles. And why was our hero attempting to tear asunder what was so tenaciously joined together? The answer lies in the only other promi- nent characteristic of VVilliam VVeezer Weepus-"his sound-off." Other attributes he pos- sessed, of course, among them a small round face, a long body, short legs, three stripes on each sleeve, a slouch of three years' standing, and an increasing deficiency in Spanish. These were commonplaces. Not so that voice, which rose like a rocket from abysmal depths until it reached its apeX,in a nameless note, when it burst into a shower of flattened fal- settos. To hear his '4Yea, Furloughln of Yearling days was a never-to-be-forgotten audi- tory treat. But what had this to do with face cream? It l1ad all begun on a Sunday morning. Rays from the spring sun were slowly soften- ing the tar in the roadway. Early robins sought diligently for belated worms. In the shade of the trees near Colonel Thayer's monument, a group of nursemaids idly watched a con- tinuous performance in the dental office. It was a warm day, and the mute agonies served to break the monotony. Across the grass and past the monument she came, studiously poising her parasol so as to detract nothing from the Hnely-featured beauty of her face. Slowly and carefully-she stepped-for grass-stained white shoes do not go well even with green stockings. In the sallyport, E. VVillis Huntington, wearer of chevrons and charter member of the Order of the Reptile, awaited her approach. He stood with the air of one to whom such meetings were commonplace, if not a trifle wearisome, but nevertheless to be borne as part of the responsibilities of his high position. CNI1: Huntington's sergeantcy dated from a recent mess hall outbreak which was conining his predecessor to the gym- nasium, barracks, and area of barracks, especially the latterj But the fair one's journey toward the alluring Nlr. Huntington in his framework of sallyport was not to be accom- plished without interruption. Suddenly came a series of guttural splutterings which finally resolved themselves into "Armee, oh Armee, with a spirit that can nevuh, nevuh di-i-i-e-" 327 5 I. ,,..

She looked up and beheld an aggressive red head, a pair of pale blue eyes, and an exceedingly wide mouth opened to its fullest extent. A chaste window shade hid further details. And as for "Red,,, he saw only a femme, but a femme so different, so superior, that his future happiness was from that moment tied to a tilted parasol. Even as their eyes met, her lips parted to show two rows of even white teeth. A smile for him! Oh, glorious spring sunshine! What a joy to be alive! filled" VVeepus turned and seated himself heavily in his chair. Several times he sighed deeply. Before him on the table lay a lusterless breastplate, rather the worse for wear and weather. He picked it up and fixedly regarded his distorted reflection. Even this rather hazy image convinced him that he would not do. A long and careful interview with his mirror confirmed this decision. For a long time he sat plunged in the depths of despair. Suddenly an idea came to him. "I'll try it, anywayf' he said aloud, and sprang up so ener- getically that he completely upset his field equipment which had been neatly arranged on his table for 'cJunk Sunday" inspection. Cadet Sergeant Huntington, languidly engaged in sewing a much-needed button on his full dress coat, looked up in surprise to behold a reddish apparition which delivered itself of the following: "Hello, Hunt,-er-thought I would drop around and see you. Nearly got hooked by the 0. G. when I skipped across the sallyport, too. Thanks. Iive got a match right here. Er-er-say-er, Hunt, that was a keen femme you were talking to in front of barracks a while ago. You know she looks an awful lot like a femme I met at the furlough banquet-I mean at a banquet on furlough, very highbrow affair, lots of nice people, you know. Er-could you-would you-ah-what do you say we go and see her some day? I don't remember her name, but I think she remembers me. H Nlr. Huntingtorfs expression changed from surprise to tolerance. After all, he was dragging to the next hop and could afford to be benevolent. "VVhy, sure, Red, I'll take you around some iafternoonf' Wfeepus left the room as if on wings. As he floated down the stairway, the sight of his reflection in the back door suddenly reminded him of his in- spiration. On the way home he visited many rooms and collected from them an assort- ment of creams, tonics, and lotions. Wlhen the owners were present, he borrowedg when absent, he took. Thus we find him making his tentative attacks on his unruly features with a light heart albeit a heavy hand. It is not our purpose to follow the career of Bill Wleepus through a period of impro- vised night caps, and scented hair oil, of hot towels and cold cream. The Cadet Store was surprised by a rush order for a full dress coat. A full dress coat for a First Classman, six weeks before graduation! The minions of MacAneny rubbed their palms but also pointed to their foreheads and made circular motions with the forefinger. One thing alone marred the joy of Wfee IN7illiwSpanish. There are people to whom such words as toreador, senorita, and Hojas Selectas merely conjure up a world of romance. They see dark beauties, tropical palms, bright colored garments. To our hero they meant red chalk, tired feet, Christmas week on the radiator, and above all, Lieut. Dillingsworth of the Coast Artillery. The relations of Lieutenant Dillingsworth and Cadet Weepus were strictly official and entirely conined to a certain section room. They com- menced each day with a heated argument. They were continued by frequent renewals of said argument, punctuated by labored sarcasm fron the instructor, and invariably ended with a low mark for Cadet Weepus. In fact, "Red', had a decided "reverse', on his instructor and was really worried by this to a greater extent than his attitude of indifference could conceal. At length there came a day when the red hair stayed in place without artiicial or other unauthorized aids, when the freckles had faded to an indistinct blur, and a new full dress coat hung in the clothes press carefully enveloped in a pillowcase. Next Saturday would be the day. Huntington had agreed and Weepus was ready. During the previous weeks he had glimpsed his divinity often, but only from afar. He did not wish to encounter her unprepared. 328 i t' ig.

When the battalion had been formed, he searched the visitors' seats until he located her just in rear of the re- viewing officer. A few minutes later, as his company marched in review, the command rnyes Rightv brought them face to face. He thought he saw that same smile of recogni- tion and his eyes were still fixed upon her after the company had passed. -'HW' A"' " ""' A ' - A f " "Mr. Weepus, sir, they gave the com- 9 mand 'Front,, S1I'.,, L 3 v Z 5 "VVhat s the idea of marching be- i pa, f 1 5 tween the ranks, Red?

In regard to the general policy of this book, we con- fess at the start, we haven't any, that is, most of us haven't, bar the common VVest Point policy of dead- beating as much as possible and a fifty-cent life in- surance policy taken out by the Editor-in-Chief, in case of eventualities after the book has been read. Of course, we have tried not to be too obtuse, but it must be remembered that there were only two goats on the staff. One of the above mentioned had an acute attack of appendicitis, so couldn't do much, and spent most of his time trying to draw and take pictures. The thing of importance he drew during the year was a slug, and the only thing he ever took was a cold, so he did less. The book is therefore largely a product of brains, and knowing what that means, be charitable. You don't have to be popular to be knocked in this book. We have tried to knock everybody impartially, and now we devoutly hope that someone doesn't take offense, and try to knock us on the head. We have Haunted the modest-violet-like Jesse Tarpley brazenly before the public eye, and have exposed to all Bruno- the Me-ist. It is sincerely hoped and believed by the authors that old Doc Merrell, who put the app in appetite, and six men in the hospital with his pills, has not been drawn upon too largely as a source of humor. The regular old standbys have been used, however, to produce both laughter and tears, to wit: Red O'Hare, Hudnutt, Abernethy, and Smith, C., for the formerg and an onion, for the latter. Now, if you think you could do better, why try it. Wie have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have apparently done those things which we ought not to have done, judging from the amount of our work returned by the censor neatly red penciled and consigned to oblivion. And finally there is no health in us. YVe have only this and a head- ache to show for our efforts, so again be charitable. And if we have oH'ended remember, like all the other one thousand and one "Thou Shalt Nots", the Offense was Unintentional. West Point Humor AREA. BIRD: to passing cadet: Say, what time is it? KAYDET: What'ell do you care? You're not going anywhere. 1 I l ' The Letter of a Subscriber EDITOR, Cade! Lzfe. Sir:-It is time the serious-minded men of this organization got together for the purpose of reorgani- zing and rejuvenating the Y. M. C. A. That society has of late fallen upon evil days and is now constantly menaced by the danger of falling into the hands of corrupt and worldly men. The political affairs of the body are in a deplorable way. The open machinations of the Abernethy-Herman clique are no longer endurable. The activities of polit- ical malcontents like Frank Scoheld, Pot Redner, and the notorious Patsy Flanigen, should not be tolerated. The election last year was a screaming farce, and a crying disgrace to such an organization as this. About Abernethy, the so-called upopular candidaten, gathered the great unkempt and the scavenger element-the very dregs of society. About Herman, the Pessimist- Radical, collected the Penurious and Tight-those favoring a reduction of the present rate of taxation. Base souls they were, in whom the virtue of economy had become a vice. A superstitious, gullible lot, easily tricked and hoodwinked by the brazen trumpet blasts and false messages from Heaven, certainly not heavenly, but most assuredly unearthly. Jones was the logical president last year, but only by the craft of the faith- ful in disenfranchising all the Roughneck element after a policy of watchful waiting, was he elected. This year the strength of Rough House Hall is greater than ever. They intend to run Pope and Confer. Can anything more unblushing or disgraceful be imagined? Only a ticket headed by Wooden Joe Sullivan and Half Asleep Cowgill could be more preposterous. Verily, the day of calamity is at hand unless steps be taken to avert it. Let us gather for the fray and put all our efforts into electing Daddy Wleems and Grandma Warner, thus averting the catastrophe. CSigneclD A. HELLDODGER. f Q Z IF'lp Q I J WM!

Wx SPORTING TERM: A No Hit Game An Infantry Drill YYebster dehnes drill as exercise regularly enforced- and everyone knows that Webster is right. An infantry drill provides numerous opportunities for all kinds of exercise, from that ofthe intelligence to that of the voice. Most kaydets prefer to limit their activities to that of the voice, leaving the mental operations to the "higher commander." Duke Ramsey is a typical example of what systematic voice culture of the One- Two-Three order will do for a man. As a sergeant he took lots of that exercise and now owns a melodious bellow. Doughboy drill is divided into close and extended order. Close order is like a trip in the dark-no one knows where he is going but the battalion commander, who is generally on the point of going crazy after watching the First Class Bucks demoralizing good com- panies with varieties of new and unheard of commands, such as "forward marchv, followed by an exultant, "right dress." At extended order you crawl for miles and miles on the subsistence department of your anatomy, trying to look like part of the scenery, in order that the enemy in the Bachelor Ofiicers' Building may not recognize you and start sniping. This requires a very Vivid imagination, because the occupants of this sacred edifice are not wont to indulge in target practice when the mercury is playing tag With the roof of the ther- mometer. However, the main objective-Lots of Exercise-is obtained, so what more can be demanded? Observations of a Cynic An Engineer often .gets a 2.5 where a goat gets 5 tenths or 5 demerits. Furlough is a pleasant delusiong its aftermath is a great confusion. Christmas leave comes but once a year, but your bills come every month thereafter until paid. Doughboy drill is like a trip in the dark-you never know where you are going, except Hudnutt. He is a blind spec, anyhow. The Tactical Department is a permanent affliction attached to the Military Academy as our pro rata share in the punishment for the original sin. - 336 U 'Q ..x. fem ' h Mi - Q , Q 'S f' 1::',.'es.:.r an 51- -an Win!

An efficient man can usually get away with anything from the cocktails at a banquet without getting wobbly, to an unusually gross blunder at drill without getting hived. The ef- Ecient Vilest Pointer is always distinguished by chevrons and extinguished by frequent spigottings. There is a. nice distinction between efficiency and deficiency, though some of the bucks claim that the eflicient makes are sadly deieient in horse sense. A debatable point, however. A sure-enough efficient man can do anything from his best friend to a pair of hop gloves. The prominent exponents of this cult at VVest Point are Major Bliss, E. Chambers, and Abernethy.

Full many a day of toil and sweat Have I spent within these dark gray walls. Nor have I found a haven yet, Where I may sleep and hear no calls. I'm growing weary of this Kaydet lifeg I yearn for the rest that comes with yearsg I long to leave behind me all this strife, And pass forever from this realm of tears.

VVhat though the femme were another's, surely he wouldn't care, With Pegleg doing the honors, out on the balcony there. The sixth dance passed and the seventh, up to thirteen, too, And Pegleg still was a-treating at the start of the Army Blue. The other fussed and fretted. Chapin thought 'twas a grind.

Crampton Jones for stealing the overcoat of Beans Herman, exposed the misdeeds of another sinning soul to public scorn. Jones, the President of the Y. NI. C. A., was charged with the theft of Beans' overcoat. The evidence presented by the prosecution made a clear case against the defendant. The testimony of the character witnesses called by the Judge Advocate was damning in the extreme. Cinders Herkness testified that he once heard the accused say, "Oh, bull dogs!" in a violent manner, and J. D. NIiley swore that he knew the prisoner to often say "Da.rn." The testimony of the aggrieved Beans was especially damaging. Herman, on taking the witness stand and being asked if he- solemnly swore, replied that he did like a trooper. This was-accepted by the Court and he was allowed to tell his story, which follows: Cadet Beans Herman's story: "This .Ionesy and I go riding on the same day. On Tuesday, February 8th, returning from Oo-Oo's7': inonkey drill, I left my coat downstairs, intending to put it on on -my way to din- ner. IYhen I went after the coat it was gone.

I said 'By Christopher Columbus, I wouldn't put it beyond ua Helldodgerf I had several orders published before the company for the coat, but nothing doing, so I made a personal inspection and found my property hanging on the third hook in Jonesy's alcove. 'Here's my coat,' I tells this Daniel Boone Helldodger, 'I found it in your alcove. Youire trying to hook it.' 'Bull dogs, it was a mistake, you son of a gun' says Jones. 'Youre full of prunes' I told him, and beat it with the coat." f'I'aken from the records of Commissionj Jones was tried and found guilty of the following charges laid under the head of the 6QMth Article of War for the Y.

'The Sentence: Forfeiture of six months? desserts and costs. - In the opinion of Luis Salvosa, reviewing oHicer, the sentence imposed was too mild. Avogadro Garcia's speech for the accused merits mention, being composed in Tagal and Spanish, and rendered in English. It is hoped that Jones, case will serve as an object lesson to future Y. M. C.

I-11' Am' ,h - w Scientific Notes Ak HE NOW famous Sigma M R 1 Square Fraternity was founded i X xg ' R one year ago today by Josephus X " O'Hare of the Hub. The charter , 'V .""' members comprised the two goat sections and Spence Merrell. ,gh B. The latter gained entrance into this highly scientific body by reason of his investigations in aeronautics. Spence once flew to the second section and remained aloft till the next transfer. A board has been appointed to investigate the case of William Shipp, Esq., who is suffering under the de- lusion that everybody is wooden except himself. The board consists of U. R. Gross, A. VVoodenman, and I. A. M. Blank. Maurice Miller and old Pop Freeland have invented a new and scientific method of trapping the elusive contour-patents applied for. Do you realize that in four years in the Academy, you sweep your room six hundred and ninety-one times, or if you applied all your energy in one spurt you could sweep Broadway from Shanley's to 28th Street? But we feel that most of us would pull off a "mike" and leave our broom outside Shanley's while we listened to that modern Hell Cat Orchestra inside. Inaccuracy Cslide rulej. I Pettus Hemphill, who was recently been making in- vestigations of the wearing powers of leather and the frictional resistance of gravel, has deduced some impor- tant principles which will doubtless appear in Pechols Daily Interpolated. However, by special permission of Pet and his distinguished colleagues, Henderson, Styer, and Butler, we take pleasure in present- ing the results of these researches in advance. Hence- forth, the well known deinition of leather must be followed by the statement that its wearing powers vary inversely with the time. As for the frictional resistance, this is found to bear a close relation to the velocity-the latter being a function of the O. C., which with an efficient tac. on the poop deck often approaches the limit of resistance to torture. Should rupture occur, the results are apt to be disastrous as, except on very dark afternoons, it is extremely diifcult to makea clean break. Needless to say, these important conclusions could not have been arrived at without the aid of Hemphili's improved method of working 3 5 area problems by means of the slide rule. This rule works best on slippery days and, moreover, it has been found advisable to equip oneself with overshoes of the fourth class before beginning the experiment. One can thus work comfortably without having to intro- duce another unknown quantity-the price list at McAneny's. Science Defined fBy a Kaydetj Getting away with a b-ache.

I - pairs.-iai we, Y . are about to have our E 'LW say. In the first place we should like to state that however glad you may be to reach the end of this volume, your joy cannot hold a candle to the feelings we had on first arriving at this page of the book. But as long as you are here, we should like to call severa.l matters to your valued attention. We wish principally to caution you against throwing all your mental bouquets Cor eggsj at the distinguished gathering portrayed on the opposite page, Wle desire to take this opportunity to present to you the names of several people but for whose aid this volume would have been but the mere skeleton of its present self, had it come into existence at all. Among the manygwho have given freely of their time, labor, and counsel, to help the would-be editors of this book, we desire particularly to express our thanks to the following. Nlrs. Beverly F. Browne, Miss Gladys Sibley, Mr. Otho Cushing, Mr. Gardner Rea, and Lieutenant Meade Wildrick, whose drawings and paintings stand out like roses among the thorns of our humble cadet efforts. Lieutenant Colonel E. R. Stuart and Captain H. J. Koehler. who greatly aided by their contributions to the literary department. Nlr. W. H. Stockbridge, Underwood and Underwood. the New York Herald, and the Coast Artillery School, Fort Monroe, who have given us many of our best photographs. The White Studio, whose entire staff, from Mr. White down, has treated us most considerately and has given its best efforts to make this book a photo- graphic success. The Department of Drawing, which has lent gener- ously of its advice and equipment for the beneht of our struggling staH artists. EDIT IS DUE The Hausauer-Jones Printing Company and the Electric City Engraving Company, whose unfailing courtesy and careful handling of our copy have been immeasurably appreciated by every member of the hoard. The advertisers who, by their liberal appreciation of the merits of this volume as an advertising medium, have insured its financial success, ' Needless to say, THE Howlrzmn Board by no means embraces all the cadets who have helped produce this book. Every member of the corps has helped in some measure by subscribing for it. And there have been so many contributors that it is difficult to say who has aided the most. We don't know whether to thank Abe and George for the many grinds they furnished or to dedicate the book to Herman, in grateful recog- nition of the fact that he is the only man in the class who has never asked us Hwhen it was coming out." However, there are several men who have been so self-sacrificing in their devotion to the cause that it is but just that the rest of the corps should know who they are. We, as Editors of THE Howifrzizn, feel espe- cially indebted tothe following contributors: Miller,'19, to whose talented hand we owe all our charcoal drawings, as well as the oil painting for athletics. Griftith,'1S, Stanford,'1'7, Doney, Barrows. and Hibbs. '16, who have also materially aided the art department. Baldwin, 1Yorsham, Irvine, Draves, Andrew, and Henderson of '16, and Pope, '17, whose literary efforts grace many pages of this book. Barriger and Cruse, '19, who, between them, have typewritten most of the book. Brundred,,16, whose activities as a "book agent" have been greatly appreciated by the business staff if not by his victims. The Second, Third, and Fourth Class Committees, who have aided greatly by providing the material for their respective class sections. 364 THE HGWITZER BDARD From: The Howitzer Boards To: The Corps of Cadets.
