And yet, such is the blindness of human na- ture and the profoundness 0f the bliss produced by abject ignorance that we saun- tered into the unknown that balmy June day with all the nonchalance that only- the honor of having had our picture in last weeks Podunk Could inspire. , But alas for human hopes, tithe paths of glory lead but to the gravel; and our hopes of a brilliant military future soon met an untimely death at the hands of Tubby Doe 8: Co. In short, the glamour disappeared and the grind commenced in earnest. ' After three weeks in the melting pot we emerged as regular honest-to-goodness cadets; we werenit even "newll any more. Sullivan had his dagger shined and even Eddie Pope could drape himself in shoulder belts without getting hung in the process. , And then, for the first time, we went to P-rade with the Bat. While the band played the ltStar Spangled Banvnerb, and Old Glory, with Crd N est for a background, came flutter- ing down among the trees on Trophy Point, a thrill traveled through us from the soles of our kaydet store iibrogiesly to the tip of our diabolical Pompom, and we thought for a few seconds at least that perhaps after all it was worth while, butetlHeave your neck backbe some unsentimental file closer without a spark of patriotism in his makeup, crashed in upon our dreams and brought us rudely back to the cold, cruel fact of life in the present. After an endless period, our equipment-cleaning, question-answering summer was over and we returned to barracks where three flights of stairs gave at least partial protection from sudden inroads by upper classmen. Studies commenced and pretty soon we wished we were back in camp, for many a Podunk high school star saw visions of a permanent Christmas leave staring him in the face. Football relieved the monotony; tlour Macl, cinched a place on the first team and soon we caught the fire that was raging among the upper classes. Lick the Navy we must and lick the Navy we did! Then the whole corps went wild. Who will forget that day, when the pent-up feelings of four bitter years of heartbreaking defeat burst forth at once andturned the Polo Grounds into a pandemonium 0f kaydets. That Navy Day of Navy Days! Surely an event to live in our minds forever, marked indelibly with the mystic symbol which to the initiated means tlnot to be erased? The great day came to a close and we returned, tired indeed, but ready to face the worst. With an Army Victory behind us no outlook could be very gloomy. And the outlook wasnlt particularly cheerful for us poor plebes j ustithen; the dreaded writs were upon us and we all knew that we were going ' to be found. But at last they were over and Christmas with its brief respite from study received a hearty welcome, although memories of previous seasons rather dimmed our joy in the present. Thus passed the long cold winter; and spring with its drills and P-rades arrived. About that time we started our course in P. M. E., and who will forget the sight of lVIike Brennan, Esq., chasing a P. M. E. map and the tenths of a whole section right out into the- placid Hudson? However, most of us survived all - the trials and tribulations of the plebe Iaiping Enugnitiuu 43 The191aHOWl J , year, even as others had done before us and still others will do after us, but we were mighty glad when it was over and Yearling Camp with its joys and illusions was ushered in. After duly spigotting the brand new makes and thereby nipping in the bud any tendencies adverse to the in- clinations of the rabble we settled down to .a more or less peaceful summer. If there ever was a period in the exis- tence of a kaydet that is absolutely without a care or worry in the world it is Yearling Camp. At least that was what we thought at hrst. But alas, we soon found that the ghost of - the hlilitary lVIonarch had remained in ?gparling 012mm the vicinity and the Demon Discipline still lurked like the proverbial wolf at .our door. However, we were blissfully happy on the Whole, although we didnt know it then, and'entered whole-heartedly into all corps activities from P. S.-ing to Boodle Fights. Then the First Class went to Fort lVright and for one week we were Lords of Creation. The period was brief, but it gave us ample opportunity to demonstrate llbeyond a reason- able doubtll that we were just like Yearlings had always been. It was about this time Brother Kunz learned that it wasnlt sufficient to bone tlnuisance." in order to get the coveted job; he discovered that it was also necessary to "throw up" to the adjutant. And the memory of many hours of labor lost still burns within his soul. Back to barracks we came again with the light of the Furlough lVIoon strong in our eyes, for were we not THE furlough class? Yes, we were, and furthermore we were 'the only ones impressed by the fact. Another Navy victory! Things were surelycoming our way now. Christmas leave came and went, its brightness dimmed by the glare of a furlough seemingly just beyond. And then the balmy spring days when we gathered according to custom around Battle lVIonument and gave vent to our furlough-sick sentiments while gazing longingly 0n the bright lights of Newburgh. At last the long-looked-for time came round. As we donned our cits once more, shoved our hands in our pockets, looked backward on a vanishing Wlest Point and forward to a summer of pleasure we realized in the fullness of our spirits that life in all its gilded glory lay before us. We wouldnit have Changed places then with the Duke of the Sanjac of Noviwbazar or the King of the Cadet Store. Not much! For there is not a potentate in all the universal system who ranks the same section as a Furlough Man. You betcha! The summer passed rapidly. Just how rapidly no one but a Furlough Man will ever know. We played for a while on the silver lining, but one day we slipped ' down into the gloomy cloud beneath and never stopped "iLiuah" M. h u 44 The 191a HOWTZ -+. till we bumped into the sharp edge of August 30th and peacefully went to sleep over a Mechanics book. . . However, we were not seriously injured tat least most of us werenltl and within a few weeks we had so far recovered that we spoke almost civilly to our room mate and quit cussing the mail dragger just because he artlessly yelled: ltNo mail for the 3rd floor, sirltl Then were we disappointed in our Second Class course. We foresaw pre-historic mon- sters waiting to grab our precious tenths, and endless labor without intermission for a skag, in short we expected an Academic Beast Barracks. But theibluiic soon wore off and the fair treatment we received made up for the extra hours of toil. We lived the life of a llcarefree second classman with nothing on our mind? V , Christmas leave was a welcome break, and we solemnly swore, to the horror of the Year- lings, that it was worth a month of Furlough. ' ' .r - Our days of ctChemistry, Rocks and Mid Night Rides, Spanish and Drawing and Gym" at last came to a closee1916 was about to leave us. We could scarcely realize that soon we would add , ' , another and the final ' one to the stripes on our sleeve; that we would attain the goal of our endeavors; that we would be First Classmen. But the days went on just the same and the sun didntt even blink when we took the burden from 1916 and started to do our duty as we thought it should be done. At first it was a little lonesome and we felt our importance and responsibility, but we soon became . izatixsgfesagghe W m W Then came that glorious season of rumors. If a day passed without bringing with it an infallible sign that we would graduate within the week, that day we counted wasted, Time and again our hopes rose to the highest pitch and just as often they fell to earth with a dull, sickening thud. Oh, the pleasant afternoons when, beneath the shade of the trees around Kosciuskds Monument, we puzzled our brains with tactical problems instead of whiling away the summer hours in more agreeable occupations. Even tlburshinglt by the numbers didntt quell our spirits and we lived on serenely in our fooFs paradise. Then Quarantine came as a sort of damper to our enthusiasm, and a couple of monthst isolation brought us gently back to earth. The F ort Wright trip was a welcome relief and was just as good as a vacation; the weather was ideal Gor everything except shooting? and we made the most of the oppor- tunity. Even Cupe Yuill busted into society. . ' - But all things come to an end, and thatls what happened to our First Class Camp. One hne morning we carefully piled four hats on our head, slung the mirror over our shoulder and with a bucket in one hand and our best dresscut in the other we set out bravely fo'i' 45 Th g H ' W Ii T A n . .i 2191 O J barracks. The last leg of the journey had commenced. We took a new interest in studies now and even drills appeared to have some value, for the end was almost in sight. The Navy game rolled round again and we held Our breath in awful suspense while we hoped and yelled for a glorious Four Straight. And while we snake-daneed around the field after the game and light-heartedly threw our best cap across the goal posts, our cup of happiness seemed about filled. Other classes may have been bigger, better or brainier, but durned few of them have witnessed four Navy games and felt happy after each. Christmas leave came, welcome as always, and this time, contrary to all tradition, even those who stayed behind got a little enjoyment out of life. Instead of camping wearily on the radiator and piping the return of the more fortunate ones, a regular schedule of events served to make the time pass more quickly and tolessen that lonesome feeling. And then the magic year that for so long had seemed like a myth was upon us, and as we wrote 19 17 at the top of our B-aches we almost forgot the Tlskinh below. The days went by tranquilly enough, but there was always tor nearly alwaysl the ring on our hnger that told us our year had come at last. And as we gathered in the First Class Club we almost got reminiscent about the good old days when we were underclassmen. After we captured the Indoor NIeet we settled down to wait for June. Rumors were thicker than ever now. but we were sophisticated and refused to bite. And then the impossible happened, the thunderbolt struck square in our midst. It is unbelievable that the dream of kaydets year after year is about to come true for us. We pinch ourselves and each other to make sure we are awake and that it isnit a pre-reveille dream. And it isnlt; after months of expectant waiting we are to graduate early. But mixed with our rejoicing there is a more serious note, for graduation brings re- sponsibilities, too. This is a critical time, Our Country has need of us, and What the future may have in store is hidden in mystery. But as we say llGood-byel, to our Alma Mater, and start on our separate ways, it is the fervent wish of every member of the Class of 1917 that every other member will be tried and not found wanting, but will do his Duty, with Honor, for his Country. ttNruvr Again " 46 Qllarp ?gihhg Armztrnng ALBERT LEA, MINNESOTA Appointed from First District 1 MINNESOTA iiARMYh Acting Corporal,Se1geant,Expert Rifle- man, Football Squad Oi, Outdom Meet lQl, Hockey Squad t3,Q,D, ' Monogram, Cullum Hall 1D.

Some of the fellows call him Venus, but the name does not seem to gain much of a. foothold. Marvil has kept to himself most of the time he has been here, and is not so very well known throughout the class, but those of us Who do know him, know him as a hard worker. Last spring he decided to become a polo player. They say he used to straddle his radiator and practice the strokes With his polo mallet. However that may be, he is now one of our best players. He has been the cause of many of Asa Pope,s outbursts along poetical lines, and he was also once sentenced by a, court martial convened by the same runtly gentle- man. He has always been a staunch supporter of the bucks, and even the unusually large plebe class did not. afford the Com ample opportunity to give him a make. However, the area is practically unknown to him. He is going to take the cavalry, and we guess that is as good a branch as any for a married man. 48 mama Kemp Igarrnll, 3h: FT.

He is a natural born engineer, domi- ciled in the upper sections. Early in plebedom he gave evidence of these tenden- cies.

QUIET, efficient, independent sort of a chap is Swedeehrst captain of the bucks. You,ve got to know him to like him, and after youive known him for awhile you wonder why it took you so long to realize What a fine fellow he is. For the last three years he has been active on the gym squad and generally manages to add a point or two to our total. Unlike most of us, tenths never bother him, he gets them When he wants them and Without half trying. Ever ready to help a goat, heill sacrifice his own interests to show some less hivey classmate how it's done, and hell do it in that whole- hearted, unselhsh manner that shows him at his true worth. One thing is lacking in his nature, he doesnit know how to curry favor, and boning bootlick is beyond his ken. Consequently, the T.

AY back in the reign of King Tubby Doe; Birdie Eagles gained beast bar- racks, fame. It all came about in this way: Birdie sat on some marking ink. It was only a pin head at first, but with the ingenuity of a beast he managed to scrub it nicely over the seat of his trousers. The cadet store was then called upon to complete the dirty work, but that discreet establishment refused to destroy the trou until Honus should ofiicially condemn them. Birdie scratched his head, smoothed out the wrinkles in his plebe skin, drew his chin gently in and received the inspiration invariably produced by such a process. Honus and the Monk from the poop d'eck were watching with fiendishsatisfaction the antics of Tubby,s awkward squad, when our beastie drew up to a smart attention in the area below. Then displaying the tail of his trou on his extended right arm, Birdie struck a pose that would rival Liberty. iiSir, I report for inspection of trousers, SirW he declared in the confiding tone of one who has maxed it. Honus took a single glance at him, and even lVIonk cracked a smile. iiMister Doe! Dek gare of dis manil was the ver- 4 dict, and Tubby took care of him. Kidded about this b1illiant formation, Eagles declared Vengeance on all the world It determined his future profession of kidding Andeoe' befall the man who once comes within the Eagles grasp. But B11d1e s grinds have always at least a tinge of humor, In Which most cadet grinds a1e sadly lacking. They are as spontaneous as the man himself.

HERE are men to be found everywhere Who never startle the community by a comet-like career, and yet, by persistent endeavor, always manage to at- tain their goal. .And such a one is Bill. He can discriminate between work and play, and does his share of both. Throughout his entire kaydet career he has been one of the mainstays of Cullum, and that means football Without the glamour. When it comes to mattress-drill, Bill is no slouch, either, and it is even said that he wore out his first issue and had to reinvest. His roommate has wasted much energy in waking Bill to go to class. This is just another sample of how thoroughly he does everything he puts his hand to. Quiet and reserved until you know him. When you know him youire sure to like him, and heill take a whole-souled interest in any plan or plot that. you may propose. 82 1111211 313mm Erlpr TERRA HAUTE, INDIANA Appointed from Fifth District INDIANA chEOn Corporal; Sergeant, Company Quarter- maSter-Sergeant, First Sergeant, Plebe Detail.

OLLIES, the pride of 'the bucks, and we may still further add, the joy of the F female of the species who frequent the Point over week ends. He hails from Hawaii, and his tales of iWondrous Moons and enchanting sirens on the beach at Waikiki are as breezy as the beach itself. If you ever want to imagine yourself in the enchanted land of lotus eaters, just ask him about his furlough in Honolulu. The tacs were at once struck by this handsome lad and decided to make him one of their own, much to the joy of the plebes in Yearling Camp. But his genial disposition just would crop out at the wrong time, so he was released by the T. D. and returned to his friends. As a friend indeed, one need go no further, for his ever unrufHed and genial personality stamp him as a true prince.

In his management oficolor- lines last summer he was a huge success; his movies have a rep even down into the heart of Highland Falls; and his Hundredth Night show was proclaimed a max even by the ttEii C0. critics.

In spite of this he finds time to do his share on the football held and even fights a little tea occasionally. .

Well, just take a glimpse at that list of accomplishments above, and don,t show your ignorance of present-day history, for Charlie surely has been making history-for the last few years; and its the kind of history that a kaydet will remember a long time. Four navy games in baseball and two in foot- ball, not to mention basketball andindoor and outdoor meets, is a record that anyone might well be proud of. Even the T.

This is just a. sample of What furlough Will do to a man who is perfectly sound and sane.

T IS very seldom that we get a man here from faraway North Dakota, but judging from the few welve seen, we,d mighty well like to have more. Harp, as he is called, has been rather retiring since coming here and it is only those Who know him best that can half appreciate him. He is a profound reader, a deep thinker and a man who keeps abreast of current events-in short, an educated man. Should one but scan the titles of the many books Harp reads, and ever so lightly peruse their contents, he would come away with the thought: siHere is a man Who thinks? However, we who know him best realize that his is not a one- sided nature, for of all the tiHop-oidsh we have seen, he is one of the most ardent. He talks with the girls of the most frivolous things and there is a twinkle in his eye that tells one that despite his dignity the iiold manii is deeply interested and enjoying himself as much as any giddy young Yearling on the iloor. 94 mag Earriann WASHINGTON, D: c; Appointee at Large 11CUPIE1 Acting Corporal, Corp01al, Lieutenant, Shargpshootei Baseball Squad 141, ' Numeials, Tennis Team 121, Wrestling Squad 121, Hop Manager-13,2,11, Cheer Leader, New Yearis Toast.

At least, this is Dopeyls version of the matter, but we have a vague but well-founded suspicion that his heart is not nearly so armour-plated as he would have us believe, and that, when he does fall, he will fall so hard that he will be hors de combat for all time. Kelly, as far as we know, has two great ambitions: to make the polo team While he is here and get the Cavalry when he goes out. To hear him talk lovingly of his favorite branch, one would conclude that his llhossl, would at least share his pillow if not his rations.

However, Hohnesy is not going into his favorite branch to loaf; his purpose is utterly different, as has been evidenced by his oft-repeated query: ttSir, dontt you believe that the chance of obtaining quarters would be greatest in the Coast? That can have only one significance. We used to wonder Why J oe ttcut loosett so hard in those N avy games, but now we linOWeshe was in the stands.

' was our hrst introduction to this compleX-natured, enigmatical product of the West. Entering with a determination to take life seriously, he accepts drills, parades and other soirees Without a grumble. From such a congeriiality between nature and duty we would expect the Tactical Dept. to shower favors upon him, but alas, such is not the case! His disputes with them have been many, and he peacefully takes up his tours through which his mind wanders to and dwells upon the intricacies of life and the theories yet to be evolved. For of these he is a fond and sympathetic dreamer. Such fantasies,- however, do not prevent him from boning muck and he is now one of the best wrestlers in the class. I IAIL t0 the wild andwoolly Westheso proclaimeth the youth above. Such He has other serious diversions, too, in which, strange to say, the fairer sex take a part. Recently we have seen him blossom out into aufervent hopoid, such a one in fact that bids fair to rival those of considerable experience.

Well, he hangs around up there in that rarefied atmosphere, never yet ' having been scorched or even singed by any aggregation of goats.

He bewails the fact that he harvested one or two 0.5is before Xmas and had to take the writs in consequence. iVe will console him by the statement that it was best that events take their natural course and that he take his 0.5.

His knowledge of military demolitions is profound; he has never missed a feed hop, and the workmanlike and professional manner in Which he accomplishes the de- struction of the provisions collected at Culhlm has never failed to evoke the highest praise from all present.

Ask a scrub, if you donit believe it. Due to injuries he did not get.into his first Navy game, but since then as you may know he has become one of the best players in the country and one of whom the Army is proud. It is not in football alone, however, that we know Meach.

ES, this is heejust a red-headed lad from Tennessee. Some call him Red, some Strawberry, and to a very select and highly scientific few he is better known as Dr. Brashear II, for indeed, none doth delight more than he in tinkering With the musty instruments in our once famous observatory on the hill. ,Tis as easy for him to make the necessary observations and calculate the elements of an asteroidts orbit as for Jimmie Steese to steal tenths from the Engi- neers. Strawberry is one of the best swordsmen in the class, and to you who have seen him carrying the ball on the polo flats it is at once apparent Why he rides the best ponies in the string. But he has distinguished himself otherwise, also, for did he not promote and bear a large part of the expense of one of the most famous handcar companies that ever operated the Forest-of-Dean, Limited? Verily did the Com so recognize the ability he displayed that S. O. No. 54 was dedicated exclusively to him, and for eighty-eight consecutive days did he ttfluctuate?

But you cafft keep a good. man down, and Bert joined the ranks of the elite in Summer Camp. Since then, efEciency has been his aim, but efEciency without quill. Judging from the sunny smile and appearance which has justly earned for him the nickname of Handsome, one would select him foi: an ardent P. S.-er. In this case, however, appearances are deceiving and the femmes have been denied the pleasure of much of his society because of his desire to give the other fellows a chance. His chief hobbies-are horses and the Field Artillery, and we arezcertain hiscareer Will be a successful one. It is certain that his pleasant disposition, manliness and good fellowship Will be his passport wherever he goes. 131 Olharlw E11119 mulling, 3Jr. BROKEN BOW, NEBRASKA Senatorial Appointee NEBRASKA hB.

Dame Rumor says that our man from Ohio is something of a teaehound. Spec is silent on this point, but reliable evidence tells us of a misdirected Ch1istmas cake, sent, we doubt not, by some fair damsel Which cake traveled all over the Post before reaching its destination. Spec has an unlimited supply of good natUre and commbn sense and is always ready to dispense both, and to lend a hand Whe1eve1 needed These qualities have made him one of the best liked men in the C01ps, and the good will of all Will fol- low him Wherever he goes.

An athlete, a horseman, a spoonoid of the fairest femmes, Sack is equally at. home in any of the various branches of Kaydet activities, be it breaking a bronco or pouring tea. Entering as a goat, he graduated among those who go into the field and his rise has been consistent and steady. Sack is an able and conscientious worker and tho he occasionally wanders into the wrong room at the Astor at 4: A.

SMOOTH and silvery line of talk that makes even Nygaard and Swanton sit around and listen is Deaconls chief characteristic. It matters not What lan- guage he is using, and it flows just as fluently Whether the medium be English, French or Spanish. Deac came to us from the N avy, and if Uncle Sam gave medals for long and faithful service he would be sure to draw first prize. His first choice of headgear was unfortunate, and thitter Saundersll cap was a constant source of amusement for the ttL. C03, file closers, during the first few months of plebe year. But the trials and vicissitudes of a servant of the people have failed to spoil his good nature. or even to take the edge off his efficiency, and Deac is equally at home Whether drilling a company, herding a Bunch of Beasts or parading Eddy Popels goat for the edification of the rabble. In his serious moments Deac is an Engineer, and hobnobs With Prof. Jones and the rest of the elite, but he doeSIYt stay awake nights boning tenths, rather does he spend his time hguring how far it is from the Coast to the Marines, for Deac still hears the call of the deep blue sea.

As a yearling, Dutch was the life of the basketball squad, but hnally gave it up and turned to handball, still later he took his exercise in Alls F ield Artillery class, for Dutch is determined to give the Field a Whirl before taking up aviation. He firmly believes that all successful men are married, and inasmuch as he doesnt want to be an exception he is determined to go over the brink. As a photographer, Schulze is in a class by himself and makes even Jimmy Hare look to his laurels, as a glance through this book will show. 158 igpfhert Nnrman g?thmarzknpf NEWARK, NEW JERSEY , Appointed from Ninth District NEW JERsEY tiSCHWARZIEi, ' Sharpshooter, Football t4,3,2,D, Basket- ball Gs,2i, Indoor Meet 015,3,Q,D, Out- dodr Meet CD, Polo, Boxing t4,3,2,D,. -Swimming iQJL Handball Cham- pionship Oi, Y.M.C.A.

The above applies equally well to kaydets and to femmes. Behind Steve,s friendly, careless manner lies the priceless gift of being able to tell the right from the wrong, and he stuck by the right If you donlt believe it, look at that chin. In his second class year he turned out for Cullum Hall and proved to be one of the best men on the team, missing the squad only through lack of weight. This last year he left football to ttfollow the poniesll on the polo iiats. His ability in wrestling has put him on the squad for three years. Probably the one thing a first classman regrets about early graduation is the parting from such men as Steve and the temporary loss of such friendships. Herels hoping we meet him again!

While he could be an engineer, he realizes how short life is and believes in enjoying it as it passes. For two years he worked hard on Cullum, and those Who have been there know that although Cullum is a breeding place for stars, those that stay there get mighty little glory. In the outdoor meet, Blars is always a point-getter, and did his share toward bringing us the Victory last year.

Ever since he came in with us four years ago he has been known as one of the quiet substantial sort of feHOWSethe kind you like for a close friend and who is ever ready to give of their store of good and humor. It was a long While before the T. D. recognized his true merit, because to publish his good qualities from the housetops is not Fuzzyis style. Yet true worth always comes to light, and Who Will say there is a spoonier and a more ehicient first sergeant than old Fuzzy. He has worked hard on the baseball squad for three years and upheld the honor of the class in the tennis tournaments of last year. No matter Whether his muster roll is gummed or some indifferent sick marcher forgets to get his sick book back on time, Fuzzy still smiles and treats you like a gentlemanehe cant help it, for itis born in him.

HERE are men and men and also men, and Nails is one of them, as those who know him Will attest. He has the awful disadvantage of being anAugus- tine, but that has now been forgiven him and to look at him no one would ever guess it. To see him walking across the area in dress uniform one would class him solely as a Kaydet, but wait until you see him all dolled up in riding togs with a polo mallet over his shoulder. Then no one would think of classing him simply as a tKaydet, for he has a distinctive air of his own or, perhaps we should say, of the cavalry. Because thatis his all pervading hobby, polo and horseszland you can for-l give a man most sill other faults if he loves animals and particularly horses, for, contrary to popular opinion, a hors'e'is about the woodenest thing that ambulates on four legs.

M. C. A. Victrola. Wood, H. T., who was next in line, dug down into his vast store of accumulated knowledge and supplied the necessary words and the matter was duly settled then and there. A history is a hard thing to write and unless it is well written it is harder still to read. Realizing this we tried to get Sehor Mooman for the task, but he was busy revising Cor- neliusi new Spanish Dictionary and really hadnlt the time. It was in June, 1914, that most of us arrived, and as is usually the case, itwas a motley crew. The beast detail worked wonders, and we ourselves helped after we had time to look around and get oriented. There wasnlt much knowledge of a military nature con- tained in that crowdeone man recently confessed that the first time he saw the Corps march to dinner headed by the Hell-cats he felt sorry for the poor cadets who had to play in the band. However, time went on and we learned. When we reached the advanced stage of Yearlinghood there was nothing weld admit we didnt know. The Second Class course weakened these ideas somewhat, and now that we are about to go forth from these protect- ing walls, some of us are frankly nervous. A detailed account of our Plebe and Y earling years, both as a class and as individuals, is too great a task, and to those desirous of seeing their names in print. we recommend such hles of the West Point Daily News as the sympa- thetic Tactical Department will throw open to the individual seeker after knowledge. There are few Second Classmen who can remember farther back than that beautiful August day when we were collected in various 115mm marmdm trains and ferries over to Camp Quarantine to foil the polyomeilitis germ, and so protect the tlcadets and other children of the post? However, what promised to be a slug of the hrst magnitude turned out to be one of the most enjoyable parts of the year. It was some- thing new, to be dubbed immediately Second Class Camp and to go along with the rest of the dreaded Second Class Year. The class really began to find itself then and there, and those three weeks brought us closer together as a class than the two previous years had done. And how the bull did flOijust back from furlough, you know-and sympathetic audiences ready to listen to any tale, and romantic weather to go with itea full moon every night for two weeks. N aturally, Fort Clinton parapet was crowded nightly after the O. G. had inspected. It is one of the brightest spots in the memory of our Second Class Year. Even quarantine had to end some time and we moved back to barracks on the fifteenth of September to riotously greet and be greeted by the rest of the Corps. This was right in the midst of the football season, and what a season it turned out to be! The Army-Notre Dame game will go down in history as the cleanest, hardest fought and the most spec- tacular game ever played at West Point, and was only eclipsed when Ollie took the kick-of'f at the Polo Grounds and ran it back eighty-seven yards. Four straight games from the N avy-that was a happy day for all Kaydets. 192 J . la! tlmrlinga There has always 'been an im- pression in the Corps that the Second Class Year is greatly to be dreaded, that you study night and daygand that it is Only by the grace of God and the Chemistry Department that you survive. We had this dread at first, but it soon wore off and, now that we areall graduated chemists and electri- -cians,and astronomers, we can look back on some of the pleasantest even- ings of our West Point careers when the crowd gathered in any old div, a fresh package of bull was opened, and tliose with literary tendencies supplied with the latest magazine from the Dia- lectic 01' the First Class Club. Alas, 'how perverse is human nature, for the tasks of one generation are the pas-r times of another and now that we are confionted with the problem of deducing the num- be1 of cooks 1n an Italian delicatessen company Which may be called out by the President in . time of war, how we do yearn for a little of the old-fashioned Chemistry spec. And then the incredible happenedeHun- ch'edth Night had come and gone and we were just beginning to remember that-June was on the road, when suddenly one night at supper the Com appeared in the mess halleand the rest is too Vivid in our minds to need putting down as history. Suliice it to say that Seventeen gradu- ated on the twentieth of April and left us here as the Senior Class. Hopes ran high and rumors hew around the Corps like electric waves Fi1st it was that Ast1onomy was going to be abolished immediatelyewhich it wasn t; then that we would graduate In September. Clamp Quarantine 13 193 Eh? Eeturn The optimists put it up as eaily as June, and the pes- siments and scoffe1s agieed that it would be June, only the latterlsl June was in a difTerent year: It was in this highly dis- rupted state of mind that the Corps went to dinner on the ninth of Mauve and the Com again-appeared in the mess hall, and we learned that we, too, were to he graduated early. Supe was read us and we reproduce it here, for it states more clearly than can we the' responsibilities With Which we were confronted, and it should always be an integral part of our class history. A letter from the t The 191g HOWI 7; iiiwhquartm Huiiph g?tatpz wilimrg Afahemy Meat Huini, N211: igurk May 9, 1917. The Superintendent; U. S. M. A. i The Corps of Cadets, through the Commandant of cadets. Early Graduation of the Class of 1918. i 1. Under instructions from the Secretary'oi1War, received this day, the Class of 1918 will he graduated on August 50, 1917. The reason for graduation at this time lies in the paramount necessity of trained officers for the large army being raised.. V 2. The instruction of the Class of 1918 is not com- pleted according to the standards of the Military Academy. In order to derive the greatest possible benefit from the three and one half months remaining, and to graduate the Class as fully prepared as possible, it will be necessary to adopt intensive training, both in academic and practical subjects. This instruction may have to be carried on with a smaller number of officers. It can be successful only through hard, continuous and willing work on the part of the cadets. It becomes, therefore, the duty more than ever for all cadets to apply all the strength Of their minds and bodies to make such instruction effective, and to follow out both literally and in spirit the regulations of the Military Academy. ' 3. The Corps of Cadets has'never, it is believed, failed t9 answer to any call, and I know that this time as well they will respond to the highest degree to the Motto of the Academy--DUTY, HONOR, COUNTRY. Colonel, Corps of Engineers. This letter put it up to us in a personal way. Play time was over, and work, some of it of a most disagreeable nature, was ahead of us. There was naught to' do but grin and pitch in, which the whole class enthusiasticlaly did and Will continue to do. Graduation over and the Class of Nineteen EighteeneSeventeen primeegone, might seem to indicate the end of the class history. We calft go any farther than that together, anyway, but to our star may each man be a ray, and let each man take with him a part of the class history and be responsible for that particular part and see to it 'that it never fades, but continues to grow brighter and clearer as the years go by. 1 , a I By order of the Class of Nineteen Eighteen. 195 The191AgHOWF7 HEIIP, 133251 iEnint.

However, it did not spoil him as he was pigeonedtoed already. Baclig started out bravely and nearly graduated before his class.

It impressed him so much that he decided to follow in the worthy biographeris footsteps and since then, at all times of the day and night, .he breaks forth into eloquent eulogies of the immortal N apoleon. His efforts have been successful, for Tiny is known among us as the itLittle Napoleonf, martial, military and militant. His only regret is that Bonaparte was not a bold 'Cavah'y man, for no color is so pleasing to Jack as the equestrian yellow. He will tell you ofteneand at lengtheof his F rench ancestry, and perhaps it is from them that he has inherited an excellent sense of humor Which makes him enjoy a grind even When it is on himself. In fact, those are the kind which he en- joys mosteand most often. But from some source he has acquired the British bull-dog tenacity which makes him stick to a thing until he comes out on top.

N the first place dont let his nickname mislead you. When one hears the word, Zeke, quiet pastoral scenes of the old farm and a ruddy-cheeked coun- try boy are more thzin apt to force themselves upon the imagination. HOW- ever, Zeke does not hail from the country but from Portland, Blaine, Which every- one knows is a large and. wondrous city, and besides one canit somehow think of Zeke without in some way connecting him with such scenes as the F mlough Ban- quet or the Midnight Frolic. He has never been the least bit piggish over tenths, and the goats have always had in him a loyal and steadfast member. But why worry over such trivial details as tenths? Either Zeke has a loyal friend in Dame Fortune or possesses a lucky star which has never descended below the horizon. Could a man who has gone on Christmas leave one tenth pro for two successive years be anything but lucky? No doubt you have already guessed from his picture that Zeke is really spoony, but perhaps his most prominent characteristic is his ability to make friends, of whom he has 153 staunch ones in the Class of 1918 who will always be glad to see him coming. 208 13311131111 $111111ng Eingham WASHINGTON, D.

And now see What three years at West Point have done to him! They have made him lissome, yes, but they have shorn him of ten years of dignity and, alas, his knees are far apart today, Where once they snuggled close. If, however, the cruel curriculum has fashioned anew his exterior, the sweet sentiment Within him remains unsoured. With the coming of every Sunday he removes a certain picture from his locker and places it before him on the table, then sets him down to write to her With Whom tithe podunk boys have not a show? And there is reason in his madness, for we can easily understand how he draws inspiration from that picture.

But Ray brought with him other things besides a dialect, among them an ambition for chevrons, a quiet perseverance, and as clean straightforward character Which has gained him respect and admiration throughout the Corps. His desire for a make has been fuhSlled and he now runs a roster to enable him to decide each hop Which of the podunk shall bask beneath the glitter of his chevrons. Ray fell long ago for the shiny boots and yellow stripe, and is determined to stick to his choice as long as there is a regiment of Cavalry left. XVith always a will to put his shoulder to the wheel, no matter how great the task, he has done valuable service for the class and much toward making of him- self an efEcient Ocher.

However, his ignorance of 3v; and the laws of centrifugal forces came near having dire results last winter when he swerved a bob-sled into an automobile down at the railroad station, thus bestowing a hne tidead-beatii in the hospital upon himself and one other of the joy-riders. After that he used to sneak over to the other battalion where his reputation as a steersman was not known, and take plebes out coasting. The Woodrow of the above picture is not as we know him. His classmates would all recognize him more easily if he had a black eye, a bump on his head or a new cut on his chin. XVhatever game he plays, he goes into it with all his might and comes out of it always with a smile but. sometimes plus a sprained ankle or a new bump.

In this generation of wonders there are many creeds, ocultists and, new thoughtists, milk fed buddies, who strap a pistol to their sides, let their hair grow long and attend queer revivals, and it is claimed by some of these that we have a subconscious mind. . I dont know but maybe it was some subconscious influence that was working on me that day for strange to relate I dreamed not of Utopian lands, sunkissed and bright in their resplendent sweetness, but, horrors, of everyday commonplace Kaydet life, of the things that had hap- pened since that pleasant day in June when I had jumped blithely off the train at the sta- tion, full of ambition for all that life held in store, to quickly become a disillusioned youth; through the cruel workings of a military machine. . The Itsob sistertt column of the M orning J oumal could have drifted along for months on the material that we might have supplied it after the first few brief days of our incar- ceration. The bespectacled old hunchback charged With scribbling out his advice to the lovelorn and homesick might have racked his brain to'eternity trying to answer the queries we could have poured upon him, for there is nothing in the world like about twenty-four hours of Beast Barracks to give one that longing feeling for home and mother that almost eats the heart away. The first entries in the Cadet store handicap race were up, and I . moved restlessly in sleep, kicked out wildly in- a sprint across area, clutched blindly at my covers, and almost fell out of bed as great beads of.sweat startedout upon my forehead. With a slow and sloth-like motion I managed to turn over upon my other side. I was breathing easier now, ltplebeil year was almost over, and as I joyously grasped the hand of my company captain on recognition day I could imagine. for an instant that I had really floated into that beautiful Fairy- . land of which dreams are made. i This was indeed the ttgood old summer time, of which we had heard 'so often, golf, tennis, hops, femmes, there is no use enumerating all these untold joys of life which were so sud- denly thrust upori us, but let it suffice to say that the :IYearlingsl, were well 355 The 191a HOWI 7, + represented at every turn, including boodle fights, mattress-drills and the area, and that nothing which came within the scope of this apparent paradise was lost upon us. Some of the young Alexanders who sauntered forth bedecked like an Italian holi- day, in the added adornment of one pair of gold chevrons, were soon weeping be- cause there were no more hearts to conquer, and their evening baths of Putz Pomade and shoeblacking were soon forgotten, as they proudly brushed some imaginary fleck of dust from their arms, in the hope that the glitter of gold might attract the admiring glance of some female. Despite the fact that the T. D., impersonating the long arm of the law, reached out and fastened its clutches upon several installments of boodle we managed to eke out a bare existence, and were never to be caught living in a frugal manner. It was now that we were hrst drilled in llspeckingtl the nomenclature of a pack saddle, and allowed for the first time the privilege of mounting those fiery dragons of the riding hall, commonly called horses which, if they were not in intrigue with Satan, certainly should have been, considering the many times that they must have been condemned to the care of Pluto and his consorts. With the second influx of llPlebes,, into an otherwise peaceful camp, many a picture of true connubial felicity was ruthlessly broken up by the stern mandates of llpowers that be? that all among us who were not able to boast of stars on the collar or a most wonderful bootlick would be forced to live three in a tent, and a great trek was immediately started in the search for new roommates. A floor space of about eight square feet by three lockers and a clothespress, with sev- eral yards of that area covered by golf clubs, Enable tennis racquets, musical instruments and three A boisterous yearlings, cannot be conceived even by the highly imaginative as the most commodious 0f quarters, and many welcomed with outstretched arms the dog tents of our short but most thoroughly quarantined hike. The sands in the hour glass of old Father Time were falling quickly, however and, almost before we knew it, Camp Illumination was upon us, and we awakened the next morn- ing to find ourselves masters of all we surveyed, including some three hundred and twenty llplebes? llYearling Campfl the long piped, the much dreamed of, had at last arrived, and there was much lamentation by the poor llplebe" who was so unfortunate as to go on guard that week and test out the echiency of our yearling guard detail. The days flew by on golden Wings and, despite the strictest quarantine, every one seemed to enjoy himself to the utmost, when suddenly there came a break in the proceedings and we were forced to abdicate our positions of high authorityethe hrst class had burst back in upon our blissful existence. As the bards might put it lleverything was over but the shouting? and we were very soon hustled back to our old year of academic work. 356 The 191g HOWITF It must have been a surprise to some suddenly intruding ittach to see a yearling wrapped around his alcove partition, projecting his bed upon the plane of the gun rack, but every- thing. is fair in descriptive geometry, and it was all in the Seasonis work which continued uninterruptedly until the N avy Game, when With the rapidity of the machine gun which we kept upon our side lines we managed to sweep the Navy once more off the sea. of battle and emerge once again the victor in that mighty coniiict. After that brief draught from the cup of pleasure we were kept straining at the leash for another month before being turned loose on our Hrst grand Christmas Leave. Some of the less itdisiii members and a few of the tigoatsi, were kept back to hold down the radiators in old West Point, that merry yule- tide season, but the majority ventured forth into that promised land fidwing with milk and honey, where they no doubt acquired some slightidea of what was coming to them 011 Furlo. t It is usually the long drift from Christmas to June that wears out the patience. and makes one wonder if Furlo is going to be indefinitely iton the roadf but this year an Inaug- uration served to break the monotony of life, and the days were slippingquickly by, the hours were indeed going, going, gone!

From East, West, North, and South, we came one hundred and fifty-nine strong, the hrst half of the Class of Nineteen Twenty. A reception commonly called the Beast Detail tend perhaps worse name51 ,' long noted for its love of our kind, greeted our arrival at the sally port with a show of emotion that far surpassed the worst nightmares of our most hardened tiIi-school graduate. Much we learned from our new masters ere we passed on to engage in ourflrst struggle with the n t+l l arti4 cles of a cadetis outiit. Thus we made our debut. I . For an eternity of fifteen days we toiled, sWeated, and double-timed. Some got along better than others, but all of us, yes all of us, envied the good times the boys at Sing-Sing must have. One of our number, since distinguished forboning dis, shone gloriously. Labori- ously did he shave himself every morning, with no apparent results. He had, alas, for- 1 gotten to put a blade in'his safety razor. When, at last, the beginning of the end was in sight we were actually piping plebe camp. ' So on the third of July we packed our duds and, in a procession resembling the flight of the plunder-laden Grand Army from Moscow, we advanced on Camp Story. There we were soon initiated into the round of drills, doughboy, artillery, wars between the Whites and Grays, dancing tby the numbersy, and marking targets. We shall not soon forget our sojourns in the guard tent or our moon- ' light encounters with frolicking patrols. On July tenth, hearing from afar 0f the arrival of the annual contingent of J uli- ettes, we longed to share with them our joyful lot. Two weeks later they made their presence felt 'in camp. Felt indeed, for we forthwith were compelled to lodge three in a tent. Proudly we initiated them into the mysteries of the Plebe Club and secretly showed them the tricks of the fine art of deadbeating. This latter, especially, they were not slow in learning. Before long they had learned to make wrinkles in the shoulders of a plebeskin with a safety pin, to ply the gray rag and pomade while 361 The 19ft HOWI . Z 4 ' on to Plebe boning fiction, and in short all the tricks of i the trade. In . :32; A C6. p Then came the hike, a sadly curtailed expedition, but still a hike. Far distant from plague-stricken civilization lay our route, out through the lair 0f the poison ivy, through the valleys of Bog Meadow and Popolopen. One of our brethren was worried when we started; he had not been assigned to a table for the hike. Another, later on, gravely explained to the T. D. that he had not dis- obeyed orders, that he had not emptied all of the water out of his canteen, because the water on the bottom was pureethat he had duly poured out the contaminated part on top. Back we came, almost glad to see the mess hall slum after our experiences with breadlines before the cook tent. Shortly. yearling week arrived. ,Nuff said. we dis- covered by experience what an efficient yearling corp can do when he really enters on a competitive race for quill. As a result, over a third of our class followed the line of least resistance that leads over the area. XVerejoic-ed over the prospects of a return to barracks. . We entered with high hope on our handicap race Wlth the Math department. With varying success we plunged boldly into the fight for tenths. Meanwhile, having learned that anticipation furnishes nine tenths of the joy of cadet life, we piped N avy Game. The day arrived and away we went to make the most of this hrst respite from the daily grind. Did we enjoy it? Such a question! We voted unanimously that it was the most joyous occasion that ever happened. But, alas, we had to return to inten- sified warfare with the threatening forces of the Academic departments. Though the fate of many was sealed in the hnal conflict all hands turned out for a joyful Christmas week. Wle took part with zest in the freak contests that made a wel- come substitute for the accustomed gym. At length, on the return from leave of the sourest lot of upperelassmen that we had ever yet endured, we entered on the home stretch. There was nothing left to pipe but I June. The departure of three score as a result of academic casualties deepened the gloom momentarily, but was soon forgotten in the old fight for tenths and the contem- plation of the joys that awaited us in the Jim coming June. The Fight for TCITthS 362 The 191g: HOWT 7n iglphw i5 131mm We are very slightly changed From the former plebes Who ranged XVest Point in years gone byf For he Who had the highest make, Quilled our preds just for quillts sake, As he quills you and I.

September, with its drills, parades and hot weather, does not give an opportunity for much team practice and this hrst game found us weak in that particular. Lebanon Valley was fortunate in holding us to 3-0, for by the following Satur- day the stamp of the Army T eam was plainly evident. During the week preceding the arrival of thhington 85 Lee we got down to hard practice and longer working hours; and the best coaching, staff we have ever had, began to get results. V ague rumors drifted up to us from the Sunny South of the prowess of the boys from Lexington, Va., and we knew there was a good fight on hand. Excite- ment and anticipation mounted high in the Corps, and the 01d spirit of ttFight, Fight, Fighth was radiating from the team and the stands that afternoon. The game came up to our expecta- tions of a hard, clean fight and an Army Victory. With the' 'first big game on the schedule behind us and With a comfortable feeling. aris- ing from having a Whole' skin, the team was slowly built up and prepared for the Notre Dame game, four weeks away.

Twice, since the sea- son of 1912, we have experienced defeat by a better, stronger machine and the mem- ory of those games was still fresh in our minds. But stronger still was the determination to Wineto Win a decisive victory and thus even up our score With two games each. N o t r e D a m e brought with them as fast and as strong a 5mm team as theEast had ' seen. Thelr attack was powerful and their Wide-end runs admirably executed, but their training had neglected one Vital pointethe passing game. Against the passes of Gerhardt and Oliphant, With Vidal and House on the receiving ends, Notre Dame was utterly helpless, and we ad- ministered a crushing defeat to the Western- ers. The game was the best West Point has seen in years. The play throughout was of the hardest, cleanest and best football, and seldom has a game offered more thrills t0 the casual spectator. The passing 0f01i- phant and Vidal was as perfect as clock- work and we pay our respects to Notre DameTs playing. 11121:. 711m? UMlir 388 Theimg HQWI- J 4 . f3, Nam; $amp iHimt iHPrinh ,EWAN won the choice and chose to defend the west goal. Perry built up a mound of earth to kick-off from the Navyis 40-yard line. The ball sailed high and directly down the field to Oliphanfs outstretched hands, 11 yards from his goal. Clutching the pigskin under his left elbow, he started out behind a perfect interference built up of the entire team, With V idal, Gerhardt and Place directly in front. Thus began Ollieis wonderful run. One by one the 5-ya1'd chalk marks slipped by as he dodged the Navy tacklers with the aid of splendid interference. On the 15-yard line MCEwan knocked GBnPninQ the Attark 389 T112913 HOWT 7 4 over the last man in sight and it looked as though a score was certain, but somehow Ingram caught him and it 'was Army ball on the Navy 7-yard line. Oliphantys run had been for 82 yards, and through the entire N avy team. Gerhardt lined the team up and took the ball himself 5 yards forward , to within 3 feet of the sailors goal. It was a simple matter for Oliphant to plunge forward the short distance required on the next play and in less than a minute from the open- ing whistle the Army had scored a touchdown. Oliphantis try for goal missed by inches and the score was Army 6, N any 0. . Perry kicked off again, this time to Gerhardt who found the going easy from the 14-yard line where he caught the ball to the 47-yard line. Navy tacklers seemed at sea. Oliphant was called and contributed 22 yards, but there was off-side play and the pigskin was taken back. Place found a hole through Ward for 7 yards, and in two successive plays Oliphant made it first down. Place went a yard and a half and was stopped by Fisher. Vidal went through for two more. Gerhardt called for a forward pass the hrst 0f the game, and Oliphant tossed the ball towards Shrader, but J ackson was on the alert, and intercepted the pass. How- ever, there was an off-side play, the Army receiving 5 yards and a iirst down. Vidal made 5 yards through the line and Oliphant hit the same hole for 4- more. This left side of the N avy line was already showing weakness, and Gerhardt began to aim his plays there with great precision. Oliphant made it first down and then Vidal plowed through for a 6-yard advance made possible by Knight and BIC- Ewan. This brought the ball to the Navyts-13 yard line. Oliphant was again prepared to push the sailors back but could make no gain on the line plunge. The husky full- back again answered Gerhardtis call, but this time it was for a place kick. Oliphant paced the distance back to the 21-yard line. Gerhardt crouched just in front of him for the catch, and the ball was snapped. With the quarter- back holding it, Oliphant lifted it cleanly over the Middiesi crossbar for a field goal.- W'ith less than half the quarter completed the score stood Army, 9, N avy, O. The Army now took the defensive and Vidal kicked off to Jackson on the Navyts 18-yard line. The ball was returned to the 31-yard line.

Oliphant was sent back to the 21-yard line and made ready. as though to kick, but instead oi the ball going to him it was passed to Gerhardt who executed a perfect pass 'to Vidal way out on the right flank. There was a Navy end there to stop Vidal, but the latter fell'over the line for a touchdown. 01i- phant kicked out to Gerhardt who made a fair catch almost in front of the goal, but Oliphant,s subsequent try for goal was a failure by a few inches.

Another forward pass was tried, Army interfered, was penalized, and the ball went to the Navy on the 35- yard line. Ingram added 4 and Dashiell a single yard. Gerhardt took time out to rest his team, NIeacham having been hurt. Orr selected the forward pass as the Navy,s best hope, and passed to Jackson who was not downed until he had reached the Army 19-yard line. Ingram made three on a delayed pass and Dashiell added two more. Roberts took the ball to within 12 yards of the Army goal and things began to look very much like a 6m: Navy score. Three shots at the line failed and on the fourth down Orr passed, but it was incomplete, and the ball went over to the Army. Gerhardt chose to hold on to the ball and not to kick, but Oliphant made no gain. Vidal punted to Orr, Ingram passed to Fisher who made a pretty broken field run to the Army 23-yard line.

Seventy-six men turned out and indoor work was begun at once. An unusually late season kept us in the cages until April 5th and we were forced to cancel our first two games. We were not able to appear on the field until the day of the Amherst game: A Victory was scarcely expected, but the team showed up in surprisingly good form. The scOre: 6-2, Amherst. Once more we were tied-up by snow and had to cancel the Rutgers game. On April 12th we unmasked our batteries again, this time trimming Williams 3-2. Sarcka allowed only three hits and struck out twelve men. Gerhardt and Bonham hit well and the latter accepted nine chances 0n firsteseveral very hard oneSewithout an error. At the begin- ning of the seventh the score stood 2-0, Williams. We made one run each in the seventh and eighth and an extra inning was necessary for us to win. Our infield played a clean, fast game. . - We faced Harvard on the 15th. The Weather was unsettled and decidedly cold for Neyland. Despite unfavorable conditions, he pitched excellent ball. Sarcka relieved him in the seventh and held the Visitors down for the remainder of the game. The game was closely contested throughout, but all the breaks went for Harvard and they won, 2-1. Tufts was our next opponent. Sarcka opened the game in the box. Some opportune swats by the collegians and loose fielding by kaydets piled up nve runs against us before we got a start. Gerhardt and McNeill were the star batters of the game. Score: 5-1, Tufts. On the 92nd the diamond was a quagmire and we played Springfield 0n the parade ground. Our batters did not connect until the ninth when a rally yielded us two runs. Springfield won, 5-2. , We caught our stride again in the Seton Hall game. Coffin had his hitting eye with him. Sarckais wonderful slab work permitted the Visitorsvto get away with only one hit while we rolled up eleven. NIcBride relieved Bringham in center field and pulled 397 ON February 92nd, Sam Strang reported to pilot us The 191g HOWITZ + 03 a highly sensational catch that brought the stands to their feet. . The last game in April was against Lehighls strong aggregation. Neyland pitched high class ball and allowed only three singles. CoHin pounded the horsehide mightily and Army won 5-1 in a fast game. Our team work was especially good throughout the contest. When we went up against Penn State, our forces were divided, the first class being engaged in defeating Gettysburg down in the ttP. D3, country. Loose playing combined with a couple of passes from Sarcka gave Penn a lead which our subsequent revival could not overcome. The F inn stuck to his habit of striking out nine or ten men per game. The score: 7-4, Penn State. On May 6th we began operations against Georgetown by sending our batting order around in the first inning, piling up seven tallies for us. Army stickmen were in the best of form, Georgetown using three twirlers in an ineffectual effort to check our triumphant march. House played a clever game at short. Bringham hit well. Georgetownls fielding was below par and contributed to our 15-6 victory. . Next we faced Pittsburgh, who were strangers on th local diamond. Our heavy artillery was still working and we rolled up thirteen hits. Sarcka pitched air tight ball, allOwing only three singles. Battery Sarcka-hIcNeill was effective on the offensive as well, and hit splendidlyeSarcka .750 and hIcNeill .500. Another team of newcomers, the University of Buffalo, gave us the longest game of the season, the score stood 2-62 from the fourth to the eleventh when Eddie House came across with a hit that brought CofEn home. This gameewhich was finished while the battalion was at supper was characterized by good pitching and excellent fielding. On lVIay 17th, we won from Lafayette, 4-3, in a seven-inning contest, the game being called early for the Visitors to catch a train. Coffey pitched W611, the Maroon and White batters only obtaining two hits. Extra base hits by Bringham, Gerhardt and Mitchell were materially responsible for our scoring. In this game Patterson sprained his ankle and Schlenker made his debut in left field, which proved to be a permanent berth for him. Our hitters were all wielding the wagon tongue with good results, the batteries were developing well and withonly ten days until the Navy game things were looking pretty rosy. Our next enemy was Fordham. This time they were with- out their brass band but they didnt forget to bring 1500 chesty rooters with them, all of whom had their pockets filled with horseshoes. We scored first and thefielding and hitting were about even, but the luck broke for the Long Islanders. We met Swarthmore on the twenty-fourth with only three days remaining before we were to face the N avy. The team took it easy and we used three pitchers, Coffey, Murrill and Sarcka. In the ninth we scored twice, but the final issue was 3-2 against us. On hleinorial Day, our ancient Army rivals, Seventh Regiment, found us too strongly intrenched, and we maintained fire superiority throughout the engagement. The rencontre 01!;qu 398 Enh 11121919 HOWI 7n lasted two and one half hours and netted us sixteen hits and seventeen runs. 'Homer Brown substituted in the outfield and batted one thousand. On hIay 3lst, we tied Holy Cross, our superior hitting being. offset by untimely errors. The team showed a general relaxation after the encounter with the IVIiddies. Syracuse sent up the same invincible aggregation as in 1915. This was Bob N eylamfs last game and he kept an edge on Tournure, although the latter twirled well, in a pitcheris duel. In the sixth, a single, two sacrihces and an error permitted Syracuse to make the only run of the game. . , . .

Sammy Strangis thorough and scientific knowledge of the fine points of the game, his ability to develop hitters and his enthusiastic spirit were to a great degree responsible for another successful season and eight straight. . . I Neyland and Gerhardt played their usual gilt-edged game throughout the season. NICNeiII did some splendid work behind the bat. House developed well at short, and Bring- ham proved himself to be a speedy outfielder. Coffin and hiitchell played in their cus- tomary dependable style. McMahon did steady hard work on the diamond and gave the, second team some valuable coaching. This, coupled with Murrile and Coffy,s pitching, was largely responsible for our second strings six straight Victories. The batting honors for 1916 were carried off by Gerhardt, Mitchell and House. We lost seven men off the squad by graduation, including Neyland, victor of four Army-Navy games; but we have confided our 1917 destinies t0 the hands of Strung and Ger- hardt and feel most hopeful for another championship team and another Navy game vicv toryenine straight! . 19 1 E garhphulp W.

We have been instructed in it since the days of plebe-dom and our only regret is that the class in general has not taken the interest in it that it might have done. However, there have been many persistent followers of the gentle Ga art a la Jenkins, and their perseverance has certainly repaid themeand the claSSethrough the number of points they gathered unto themselves in the recent Indoor Meet. Between thirty-five and forty men have iibonedh it religiously this year, and their work in the ring has been of the highest Class. The boxing laws of the State of New York have never been needed here and it is with extreme gratification that we witness the spirit of fairness and good-fellowship that has grown up among our iipugsf, N ot a foul has been called and no man has taken an unfair advantage of his opponent even in the heat and excitement of a championship bout. It must have been with pleasure that the'audiences have witnessed this display of so general a camaraderie. Boxing has become one of the sport features of all the larger schools of our country, as it rightly should, for the co-ordination developed between the mind and muscles is alone payment enough for the work expended in liboningf, it. And when one ltbeats the other fellow to the punchl, he experiences a thrill whichvis missing in other sports, clue to lack of personal contact. The advantages derived are seen to be manifold, and not the least of those is that of being able to instruct and train the enlisted man. Nowhere will one find a greater enthusiast than he, for boxing serves as an outlet for his excess itsteamii and comprises one of his chief diversions in the field. Each regiment has its chani- pion, and in the inter-regimental match is found one of the sources of the excellent esprit de corps Which forms the backbone of the regiment. Because of these reasons we regret that more men of the Corps do not iibonell boxing, and our advice to the coming classes is to take it up as iiplebesh and follow it throughout their course, for here they have an opportunity for instruction which they never will have again. 4:10 The 191g HOWF 7,4 19 1 7 Schwarzkopf Butler ' .

Where a few years ago we could count some dozen men in the wrestling room of the gymnasium, we can now count them up as high as seventy at a time. Men are realizing more and more that time on a Winter afternoon can be put in to a lot better advantage on a wrestling mat than it can sitting on a radiator ttboning fiction? T here are few sports that can compare with this one for developing a good physique. It is to this sport that Captain Daly attributes a great deal of the fine footballmaterial West Point has been able to find among; a comparatively small body of men. I The great enthusiasm shown for wrestling this year made it necessary to introduce two new weights in order to handle the crowd. As usual, the preliminaries afforded the Corps considerable entertainment, and the final bouts in the meet were followed With great interest. A strong hght was made this year to introduce intercollegiate wrestling at the Academy, but it was not favored by the Athletic Council. However, we hope a start has been made that Will one day help us to see this in vogue at the Academy. 1917 1918 1913 ' lEEH WOOD, S. SEGUNDO BELLINGER, E.

WATKINS CONFER . KNIGHT, O. 412 The 191s HOWF "7, -+ EEPnring QLTHOUGH the Academy no longer adds to her athletic laurels the fencing cham- pionships that once came to her so easily, the art of handling the foil and sabre is not a dead one with us. The cessation, by order, of Arlny,s participation in the inter- collegiate championship contests was a blow to the sport in a way, and in another way it was not. When a man is offered the opportunity of Winning an tiAK of representing the Army in a contest Where everything depends on him alone, and even of becoming an inter- collegiate champion, it is not remarkable that many men turn out for the sport. But When these hopes are taken away, When the highest honors the aspirant can hope for are the In- door Meet and a monogram, it is the acid test of the game. At first, it was natural that the interest should fall slightly, but the way in which it has grown in the last few years shows that there are many men in the Corps Who are willing to go through the hard daily grind for the love of the game. The purpose of Armyis elimination from the intercollegiates was to give more men in the Corps the advantage of our expert instruction, and this aim thoroughly coincides With the ideals of the Academy. It is the aim of our physical education, not to make a few highly trained athletes, thereby ignoring the great majority, but to give each man the particular instruction that he needs, and to increase in this way the physical eHiciency of the entire body of men. From the increasing number of men turning out for fencing it is evident that this sport is doing its share towards rounding out our physical education. It is to be hoped that the prospects become still brighter and that the well-directed efforts of NI. Vauthier and NI. Gelas be received With still more enthusiasm and response. 414 T112916 HOWVZ' Elnhnnr meet QFTER a lapse of a year, the Gym once again shook With lusty class yells as the test for supremacy between the four classes began. For many weeks the class teams had worked With micht and main to perfect themselves, and a meet full of sterling per- f01mances was the result.

Vast stores of supplies and ammu- nition had been collected, transportation assembled, and equipment made ready for service. The T. D. brought out the hfteen Tactical principles, knocked the rust off them, and got them into working order again. Unfortunately, in the confusion of our departure, these principles were overlooked and left behind, but this was not found out until after our return. Shortly after breakfast, the Corps fell in under arms and so carefully had all the plans been laid and all the details of V the scheme worked out, that be- for e one P. M., the entire column was ready to move, horse, foot, guns, and an imposing wagon train loaded down with one ration for each squad and two million rounds of blank ammunition per man. 1 .

Their jubilant pursuers, having once tasted Victory, and fired by Napoleonic ambitions, came up With them at noon. ' The cavalry got into action first.

T IS the object of the Association to be an influence for good in the lives of the men in the Corps; to stand for high ideals and noble purposes; to send men into the Army a little better fitted for their influential and responsible pOSitions of leadership; to cul- tivate and foster Corps fellowship and to pass on Academy ideals. t mrptings Meetings are held on Sunday evenings after the return of the Corps from supper. Nearly all of the meetings have been addressed by speakers from the outside or by ofhcers stationed here. During the past year we have been ttvery fortunate in having With ust, several foreign officers. These men have brought to us unique messages, and the large at- tendances Which some of these meetings have had proves how deeply interestedt the mem- bers of the Corps are in the great European conflict. Nearly the Whole Corps heard the talks given by Lieut. Zinoni Pechkoff 0f the French Army, and Lieut. Lloyd Faulkner of the Royal Flying Corps, and Mr. James H. Hare, WYar Photographer of Leslie,s WVeekly. In camp the meetings are held in front of the Y. M. C. A. tent. The best talks heard through the summer were made by cadets. They were talks on subjects of Corps Honor and Ideals, and how to pass on those principles to the large classes Who follow us. QBthm' Artiuitira Through the Winter months Bible Study Classes are organized. This year, under the effective leadership of NIeacham, Sinkler, and WVOOd, S. A., the enrollment has surpassed that of any previous year. The plebe groups are led by upper classmen after chapel on Sun- day mornings. The upper class groups are led by officers of the post. Each class meets on Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 in one of the halls about barracks. To Chaplain Silver, Capt. Godfrey, Capt, XVestover, Capt. Sage, and Lieut. Hoisington is due the credit for the success Which this yearts work has had. 422 11619111101112 a Through the efforts of Harrison, W.

The activities under its direction range from an elaborate theatrical attempte and succeSSeto furnishing the daily newspapers. Great progress has been made during the past year in every part of its work. In fact, the society has been removed from a state of financial embarrassment to one of plutocratic omnipotence. It has broadened its sphere of influence and assumed an importance in kaydet life of which it never before dreamed. Its chief endeavor is the production of the Hundredth Night Show, and, in this, the Corps votes it success of the highest degree. Throughout the summer it conducted a series of Sunday night Color-Line shows that placed Sunday on the kaydet map. These enter- tainments consisted of movies, local talent music, and a number of one-act sketches, per- petrated by the pen of J . Henley Frier. Another valuable feature afforded by the Dialectic during the summer was a series of talks on the Great War, given by Col. F iebeger, upon its invitation; these lectures offered us a splendid opportunity and we benefited greatly by them. The Corps desires to express here its thanks to C01. Fiebeger. Despite the Quarantine, which was so efficiently con- ducted that not one of us died, though all of us wished to do so, Camp Illumination was an event which we shall not forget. Jack Codels ability as Conductor of a Cabaret and F ood lVIuseum rivals any along Broadway and we freely confess that it is due not only to Jacks inherent ability but to his limitless experience. It was here that the T actical De- partment once condescended to smile on a plebe, for NIL Evans, the Flirtatious Flower Femme, pierced even the time-hardened armor of our Roaring Captain of Field Artillery. In barracks the Dialectic Hall tempts both the lazy and those who have to work. tEX- cept in those infernal moments when Eddie Teale, returning from a. Hash Breakfast, vents what is left of his rage on the pianoJ Throughout the year the Dialectic Society has fur- nished us amusement each Saturday evening. For the success of this department, large credit is due to lVIai-tin. The thiseauxll of ttbarracks, area of barracks, and gymnasiumh have learned to thank the inadvertent thoughtlessness which included in their sentence the last-named resort, for the movies and music in the gym on Saturday night afford a pleasant. sequel to a three-hour hike beneath the Poop Deck. It is hoped that in the future the good work of the present administration will be car- ried on with the same degree of efEciency, and that the old system of throwing all the work on one man will not be resumed. No amount of thanks can express our indebtedness to Mr. Egner, who eompOsed the score and assisted in the direction of the Hundredth Night Show. Our life demands some easily accessible entertainment for the rare occasions When we are free to indulge; and the society should continue to regard its duty as a serious business, and to handle its opportunities with responsible ehiciency. 424 IN this organization we encounter one of the most comprehensive endeavors toward The 191g HOW ; Z "4f Eh?

Sarkville, 7'7 The191eHOWT Yes, dear reader, you can easily see that our dear Cadet Redfield was what is vulgarly known as a llhitfl He rode roughshod over all the female hearts; pardon me, not over all, for I did hear a young lady, doubtless one that owned some movable property in the cast, remark: llI think that he has got his nerve advertising his picture. I think there were lots up there just as good looking as he was? Ah, but you should see the H undredth Night staff. However, the editor worft like my rambling, so I will have to get back to work and brass tacks. The play was all written, at least we thought so, before Christmas. W'hitcomb was able to give the songs to Mr. Egner early enough so that Mr. Egnerx by working like a Tro- jan, could have the entire play orchestrated before Christmas leave. Before going on with the play itself a few words are necessary concerning the staff. lVIiss Evelyn W'oolston originated all the dances, and Shaffer, F. C., taught them to the chorus. T 0 these hard working individuals belongs the entire credit of the success the dances achieved. Both of them with Miller, the pianist, were present every day and if any of them later in life work as hard for Spanish doubloons and pieces of eight as they did for kindnessl sake to help the Hundredth Night Show along they will die Carnegies. Percy Black was stage manager. T 00 much praise cannot be given him. He did his job thoroughly and well, and his systematic handling of the stage was directly responsible for the smooth running performance we were able to give. Barroll, as property man, not only collected enough costumes to make the Court of Solomon look like a side show com- pared With our production, but managed to get a lawsuit. also. T ully and lVaddell, working with Johnson and Miller and assisted by a score of carpenters and painters. produced the scenery; and if you have ever had to produce any scenery you can understand all that the word implies. All of their work was excellent. ' The electrical effects were by Bathurst and Steiner. They likewise deserved honorable mention in the dispatches, and were so men- tioned in that most esteemed periodical, llThe Army and N avy Journal? from whose august pages we will now quote a few extracts. Before doing that there is one important fact that escaped mention; the fact that at both performances the curtain rose exactly on time. Stand and Wlonder! 428 The 191g HO W i 4 The curtain rose' on a scene in intermediate spacee you know the placeethe place where parallel lines meet, and asymptotes, but pardon me, perhaps you have not memorized C. Smith,s "Book of Conundrums? Anyhow, here in space, The God of War who is also Field Marshal of Engineers and His Satanic lVIajesty, 110eno tactical officer, just His Satanic Majesty. You think I am joking. Well then here is the synopsis and you can read the plot for yourself, and I will return to the ttArmy and Navy, for my description. $gnnpaia wk 2': t t t Cadet Gallagher,as Field Marshalof Engineers, was a most laughable figure throughout the evening. at t x The second scene was at The B o 0 d1 e r s f Beautiful girls roam in and out. tThey represented the girls the cadets drag. WVhafs that? Y es, you are right. The play was a comedyy. t A 4 t gCaptain Snitz sings, accompanied by a chorus of German Maidens Who dance blithely in wooden shoes. Makes and Snakes are much in evidence, and the act closes With Colonel Quarantine announcing that West Point is quar- antined. The second act finds every one still in. quarantine. The song of the mail 01'- derly was most tuneful. and Tolo Slavesf sung by Captain Polo Ball, was very cleverly done. The chorus were mounted on pasteboard horses and were armed With small polo mallets. Cadet Riley,s ren- dering of tChevronsf a tenor solo, was one of the hits of the evening. The Yearling writ came as an entfaczfe and was brewed in a huge kettle by the Devil and his assistants, some of whom bore a strange resemblance to some of the Academyts professors, who ever and anon made suggestions towards making the compound more deadly. 499 t m. f The 191g HOWITZ i- tsThe third act opened on an elaborate setting, really beautifully painted, the back drop representing the view of the chapel and the hills as seen from the river. A solid reproduc- tion of Battle lVIonument was very properly surrounded by Y earlings who sang a furlough chorus; laughable dialogue with the chaperone introduced some excellent fancy dancing by different couples; the light effects in this act skillfully pictured sunset and dusk, and were charming; the whole cast returned to the stage for the closing chorus when old Father Time drove on in his armored car to announce that it was just one hundred days till June. Yea F urlough, and then Never AgainV So now you see What the ttArmy and Navy J ournalh thought of our Hundredth Night Show. Lots more could be said about the individual excellence of the different characters. What a splendid chaperone Sully made for that charming Miss Charming; what an ideal heroine Cooney made; how Weishampel and Kolb brought down the house, or how Galla- gher had to be removed from the stage so the audience would stop' laughing long enough to understand what the plot was about. Space prohibits what would otherwise be a pleasure to tell. Let it be sufficient to say that every one did his level best, from the top to the bot- tom, from those that ran the thing, to Cadet Harrison Shaler who acted as general Mes- senger Boy, and all deserve congratulations, not only for the way they worked but also for the excellent spirit that predominated. Also one more pOint, last but by no means least, the end the author of the play had in mind all along was accomplished; the plays raison dletre was achievedenamely, we did tlget the goatl, of that highly exalted, aristocratic and elevated body of Supermen, The Royal Corps of Engineers. Then you know SHE said she was tlthrilled? and so every- body was rewarded. P.
