Military Art and History are also taught by the officers of the Department of Civil and Military Engineering. This course includes the study of the principles of strategy and grand tactics, and selected portions of military history especially suitable for illustration of these principles. Special effort is made by the instructors to emphasize the basic principles underlying all military art and engineering science. It is impossible to teach all of the facts of these subjects: therefore, the student is taught only such fundamental facts as are needed to fit him later for acquiring the informa- tion used in the many different kinds of work demanded of an Army officer to carry out his duties properly. ' ' li Page Twenty-six Page Twenty-seven _. i Colonel Clifton C. Carter DEPAKT3IE T OF NATURAL A D EXPERIMENTAL PHILOSOPHY X O regular course was given in Natural and Experunental Philosophy until the Act of Congress of April 29, 1812, created tlie Department of Natural and Experimental Philosophy- It appears that during the first few yf ars of the department ' s existence " the instruction was most elementary in character. The only apparatus in the professor ' s possession to illustrate his subjects were a Field Transit antl a Clock. " Enfield ' s " Institutes of Natural Philosophy " was the first text-book regularly used. In 1820 the Academic Board established a definite course based on this Treatise, under Professor Jared Mansfield (1812-1828). Professor Edward H. Courtenay (1829-1834), replaced the geometrical method of presenta- tion, previously used by the analytical method involving the use of the calculus. Professor William H. C. Bartlett ( 1836-1871 ) , returned to the geometrical method of treatment from 1850 to 1853 when he again adopted in his " Elements of Analytical Mechanics " the analytical method, making extensive use of the differential and integral calculus. Professor Peter S. Michie (1871-1901), continued the use of Pro- fessor Bartlett ' s text with minor changes until the adoption in 1886 of his own text " Elements of Analytical Mechanics, " which followed the rigid mathematical method. Professor William B. Gordon (1901-1917), continued the course on lines similar to those followed bv Professor Michie. His texts on Sound and Light (1906), and on Mechanics (1910), were used until 1917. During the World War, due to the abbreviated curriculum, a complete course was not given. Upon the re-establishment of the four-year course. Professor Clifton C. Carter ( 1917- ) , introduced a com- pletely revised course to include: The Slide Rule; Precision of Measurements and Graphical Methods; College Physics; Technical Mechanics; Hydraulics; and Aerodynamics. The co urse includes also ten lectures in General Astronomy. Laboratory work was introduced in 1918 and has been continuously presented since that date. Approximately three hundred and twenty recitation hours are devoted to these sid)jects. Standard texts are used. At present, the course parallels in scope and method of presentation those given in the same sub- jects at the standard technical institutions in this country. Page Twenty-eight - ! (ol.oNKL (;. (...

From tlie inauspicious beginnings of West Point to the present day, the authorities have contended, that by the thorough absorption of this subject the student receives that instruction which underlies the making of a vahiable officer. Precision, attention to detail, and sound reasoning to an intelligent conclusion are factors which determine success in the Profession of Arms. With the inauguration of the United States Military Academy in 1802, two instructors. Captain Javel A. Mansfield and Captain W. A. Barron, of the Corps of Engineers, were appointed instructors in Mathe- matics. The instruction at this early date was divided into three parts: the elements of geometry, algebra, and the use of surveying instruments. Captain Barron was appointed Acting Professor of Mathematics and continued in this capacity until 1807. Under the Act of Congress approved April 25, 1812, reorganizing the Army, a professorship of Mathe- matics was provided for. On April 13, 1813, Captain Partridge was appointed to the professorship which he held until September, being then transferred to the Department of Engineering. He was succeeded by Andrew Ellicot, 1813-1820; Charles Davis, 1823-1837; Albert E. Church, 1837-1878; E. W. Bass, 1878- 1898; Wright P. Edgerton, 1898-1907. In 1907, Charles P. Echols, the present incumbent, became head of the department. For the purpose of instruction and recitation in the Mathematical Department each class is divided into convenient sections of from ten to fifteen members each. Each mendjer of the section is required to recite dailv on the advance or review lesson. Points not well understood are carefully explained by the instructor. The present course of mathematics is divided into two years ' instruction. In the fourth class year algebra is completed in alternation first with plane and solid geometry, then with plane and spherical trigonometry. Plane analytical geometry is begun. The third class year embraces plane and solid analytical geometry and descriptive geometry, both being concluded in alternation. The calculus, differential and integral, and the theory of least squares complete the course. Page Thirty Colonel C V. F,( hols, I ' mfcs Lieutenant H. W. Holt LlEUTE.NANT R. M.

Fenton DEPAKT IENT OF CHE IISTRY AXD ELECTRICITY he Department of Chemistry and Electricity, whicli from its foundation included the kindred sub- jects of mineralogy and geology, owes its origin to the Surgeon General, Doctor Joseph Lovell. In 1820 he proposed to the Superintendent, Major Thayer, that Doctor James Cutbush be appointed Post Surgeon at West Point with instructions to deliver a course of lectures in chemistry to the First and Second Classes. The proposal was gratefully accepted and the first lecture was given on October 9, 1820. Doctor Cutbush was not a medical man, but a practical chemist, and the only medical functions ever performed by the Department began in 1886 when a solicitous and parental Congress decreed that physiology, hygiene and the effects of alcohol and narcotics should be taught to all Cadets. In 1905 these latter subjects were transferred to the newly created Department of Military Hygiene. In 1858 the subject of electricity had become of such scientific importance that it was deemed advisable to include it in the curriculum. The Department of Chemistry fell heir to this new branch of learning which it has continued to foster up to the present time. An important change took place in the Department in 1919 when mineralogy and geology were dropped due to the pressure of new developments in chemistry and electricity. While the Department has always kept in mind the requirements of the Military Service, it has never lost sight of the goal expressed in General Tillman ' s Chemistry, that " the information given should be that most useful, improving and gratifying to educated men.

Alexander D E P A K T 31 E N T OF DRAWING A HE Department of Drawing was founded in 1803 under an Act of Congress of that year authorizing the appointment of one Teacher of Drawing with the pay and emoluments of a Captain in the Army. The earlier occupants of the position were of foreign birth and education, but in 1834, Robert W. Weir, a prominent young American artist, was appointed Teacher of Drawing. He became Professor of Draw- ing in 1846 and served as such until 1876. The painting over the altar in the Old Chapel and the large portrait of Col. Thayer in Grant Hall are his works. He was followed by Charles W. Larned, 1876- 1911; Edwin R. Stuart, 1911-1920, and Roger G. Alexander, 1920- The course in early years was limited to the drawing of figures, fortifications and topographical plans. Interesting examples of paintings by Cadets are now in the department, including the work by the celebrated artist, James A. McN. Whistler, done when he was a Cadet. Interesting drawings are also on file by such distinguished military leaders as Grant, Sherman and Meade. While examples of early topographical plans have not been preserved, the Academy points with pride to the accomplish- ments of nnuiy graduates who took the leading part in the exploration, reconnaissance and mapping of our great northwest country. In more recent years as arms and ecpiipment of armies have become more elaborate and complicated and as warfare itself has become more highly technical, the course in drawing has become less artistic and steadily more technical in nature. It now includes the elements of mechanical, arcliitectural and topographical drawing with special reference to their a] plications in the Army. The aim of the present course is to give practical instruction and a reasonable skill in drafting, together with a general knowledge of drafting room practice and an ability to read and use the draw- ings and maj)s intelligently.

The study of Spanish was introduced in 1854. These subjects, for many years taught separately, were combined under a single head in 1882 and the Department of Modern Languages came into existence at that date. The study of English was also under the jurisdiction of the Department until 1908. The purpose of the Department of Modern Languages is, within the limitations of the allotted time, to give all Cadets a basic and well-rounded knowledge of French and Spanish, including a fair ability to understand and use the written and spoken word. In the higher sections the courses are designed to develop considerable proficiency and ease in conversation. In all sections a foundation is laid for further progress and sufficient instruction is given to permit future access to the military, scientific and general literature of the two countries.

Halliday DEPARTMENT OF LAW Lhe teaching of law at the Military Academy goes back to the earliest days, the first written record being foiuid in the Regulations for 1816 which prescribed that " a course in ethics shall include natural and political law. " Until 1874, law instruction was given in the Department of Geography, History and Ethics, of which department the chaplain was professor. Although recommended by the Board of Visitors in 1848, and again in 1859, a separate Department of Law was not established until 1874, when Congress provided that " the Secretary of War may assign one of the judge advocates of the Army to be professor of law. " The first text-book was Vattel ' s Law of Nations, adopted in 1821, then the leading authority on Inter- national Law. Rawle ' s View of the Constitution was studied by the Class of 1826, and possibly by 1827, but it was never officially adopted as a text-book. This book taught that a state had a legal right to secede from the Union, and this was the basis for the contention advanced after the Civil War, that the Government taught " secession " at West Point, and therefore was directly responsible for the fact that many Southern officers left the Army to go with their States. Rawle was succeeded in 1828 by Kent ' s Commentaries which was used for botii International and Constitutional Law. The first text used in Military Law was De Hart adopted in 1858. It contained so much of Criminal Law and Evidence as was then considered necessary. Elementary Law must have been tauglit from the beginning although no text-book on that subject was used before 1897. All of the foregoing sui)jects have continued to be taught except International Law whicii was discontinued after the World War. By 1860, therefore, the course in law had assumed a form substantially as we know it today. Changes in texts and methods of instruction have been made to keep abreast of the times, but the subjects remain the same. y Page Thirty-eight LlEl TK.NANT-COLONEL F. W.

" The Cadet gunner applied the torch to the vent with a flourish which nearly scorched the coat tails of his F. D. coat. CRASH! A huge cloud of black smoke enveloped the gun, the gun crew, and most of the spectators, but all eyes tried to penetrate it to see the result of the shot. A hit! On a target nearly a thousand yards up the river! Marvelous! Among the guests witnessing this exhibition of gunnery during the annual June week exercises of 1857 was probably Captain James C. Benton, the first regular Ordnance officer to be assigned in charge of the newly created Department of Ordnance and the Science of Gunnery. This exhibition was the grand finale of the course. Captain Benton organized the academic work in Ordnance along technical lines, leaving the practical handling of arms and artillery to the Tactical Department. Included among the subjects studied were the more simple aspects of gunpowder, pyrotechnics, cannon, the riflemusket, the projectile " in vacuo, " and resistance of the air. In 1861 he published the first Ordnance text-book used at the Military Academy. But time brings many, many things to pass. Gone is the gunnery exhibition, along with the round shot and the Columbiad. The original subjects have all undergone marvelous changes. The study of fuzes and primers, the design and manufacture of artillery material, explosives, and propellants, a sound theory of ballistics, sixteen-inch guns, the wonders of motorized artillery — have all been added to the list. Even that time-honored institution, that sole gleam of humor which illumines the prefaces of all the dreary tomes through which the Cadet must plod, that solemn statement to the eff ' ect that " ' the prin- ciples elucidated in this little volume are elementary in the extreme, " even that word of encouragement is missing from the new text-book, to the grateful relief of many present and future immortals — who still find all the difficulties there just as did the Cadet of the sixties. So Ordnance carries on. Page Forty A. IjKITFWNT (ioi.ONKI. A. (,. Irll.I.KSI ' IK, I ' rofrnnDr Captain H. A. Nislfy Lieutenant J. (i. Si fjiFR l IFl TENANT V . S. BrOBERG Lieutenant G. M.

Holt DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS, GOVERNMENT, AND HISTORY Mhe Department of Economics, Government, and History is responsible for instructing the Third Class in History, and the First Class in Economics and Government. The History course consists of a survey of world history from the beginning of recorded civilization to the present time. The period of ancient history is covered briefly, the medieval and early modern periods are treated more fully, and the modern period is studied in detail. The aim of the History course is to give Cadets a knowledge of the bases of modern civilization through comprehensive review of the chief events and personalities of ancient and medieval history, and to acquaint them thoroughly with modern history. The course in Government deals with the origins of human institutions and the evolution of Govern- ment to include the Government of modern states, with particular emphasis upon our own Government and the live questions of contemporary politics. The course in Economics, which includes a short study of bookkeeping and accounting, covers the fundamental principles of economics and their practical application to the problems of money, banking, exchange, railroads, taxation, and the various phases of our present industrial era. Throughout the courses in Economics and Government the study of current events, through use of the daily papers, forms an important part of the required daily recitation. The Department aims to give the Cadets a clear understanding of world history, governmental insti- tutions, and modern economic problems. It hopes not only to fit them for their Army careers, but also to stimulate their interest in these subjects so that by future study and reading they will continue to have an intelligent appreciation of national and world affairs.

I.OVKKX.MEXT A :%» IIISTCIIIY Page Forty-three i DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH MBy his English more than by any other subject is the graduate judged. In after-life he forgets the par- ticular assignments which he once mastered: he even forgets the rules of Unity, Coherence, and Emphasis! But the lessons learned from masterpieces of English literature, a certain ability to write and to talk, and, best of all, an open, active, unbiased mind, stick to him all through life. (Jbviously, our two-year course can touch onlv the high points of literature. Cadets have time only for a passing acquaintance with Shakespeare, the Bible, Milton, Emerson, Carlyle, Brownuig, and other writers, but it is hoped that this casual, nodding acquaintance with the master-writers will, in later years, develop into a warm friendship with the best of literature. If this friendship is fostered, if graduates of their own volition delve further into good reading, then the course is justifying itself. The purpose of the English course is threefold: To cultivate in the Cadet an appreciation of litera- ture, to teach him to write correctly, and to train him to talk effectively. The assignments include a chronological series of readings from the time of Chaucer to writers of the Twentieth Century, with composition stressed in the first year and talking in the second. Practically all of the second year is devoted to works of Victorian writers. The literature previously studied is in the nature of a background and preparation for the works of such masters as Tennyson, Huxley, Meredith, Browning, Carlyle, and Emerson. To a superficial observer the course might appear to be decidedly old-fashioned. There is nnicb modern scoffing at works which have stood the test of time, nnich derision for things Mid-Victorian. But just as surely as a Cadet studies the works of these Victorian writers he becomes aware that his ideas are being influenced by their ideas, and that his problems in life are more readily and .successfully solved when he knows something of the philosophy of life as revealed by these masters of English literature.

Shockley y I n ' i MILITARY HYGIENE -Bhe course in Military Hygiene consists of a series of practical lectures and a sanitation course given to the first class on problems that they will encounter in later life, be it Army or civilian. This instruc- tion, however, is hut one aspect of the chities of the station surgeon, whose chief responsibilities are in connection with the health and hospitalization of the garrison. It has been remarked that the Corps of Cadets sends every day a very large contingent to sick call to be excused from duties, but that the number of serious illnesses is, by contrast, remarkably low. There is, in addition, the yearly phenomenon when practically every man recovers perfect health just before Christmas leave, only, in a large number of cases, to suffer a relapse some ten days later. It may be gathered that the hospital is quite a popular resort. Besides the routine activities and the annual physical examinations for officers. Cadets, and enlisted men, the hospital has of recent years had charge of the Air Corps examination of the graduating class. This is a very thorough investigation of the physical and mental qualities required of a pilot, including steadiness, reflex, depth perception, balance tests, a psychoanalysis, the revolving chair tests, and a very comprehensive eye examination. The average cadet does not mind trying for a deadhcat if he just doesn ' t feel well; but if anything is really wrong he hates to admit it and tries to stay out of the hotiiiital. These reactions make the posi- tion of sick call officer one of the hardest on the post. One hates to think liow nnich laziness a dull officer would foster, or how difficult it woidd be to have an unsympathetic one on this duty. % Page Forty-six Page Forty-seven ii iiii iiiuii iii u i i iiiiiiiiiiiiii ni i m ii M i i iii i ii i ii iiiii i iiiu i ni ii i ii im i mii i iii i rTmmmir Page Forty-eight ti k LlELTE.NANT-CoLONEL RoBERT C KiCIIARDSON Conimandant of Cadets Page Forty-nine S LT P E K I X T E :% ' Personal Staff First Lieut.

We are only reasonably proud of " B " Company, and we have no reason to be more than propitiously proud. For while the bulk of the troop are good men, there are enough of that painful type with overgrown aspirations to make life only moderately enjoyable and some- times downright miserable. The star men in our company are nil, but there are many compensating factors. By having every man exert himself, with no undue strain on any, we pass our courses, get our share of the mess hall slum, get our share of the slugs — and there ' s not a professional griper in the company. We are proud of that. Another thing: A Yearling can go into a First-class room and borrow a cigarette without fear of quill.

Brilliant is the only word to describe our sudden leap into society columns. " L " Company — dragged femmes are now looked upon as the acme of perfection.

Our athletic and activity records may be found in the sections of this book devoted to that. These things justify our existence to others. We ' ll add a few words about why and how we are different. In one field " M " Company is supreme. The art of concocting elaborate tales, based on a mere semblance of fact, flourishes in our midst as nowhere else. It is more than a pastime with us. It ' s a passion. The renowned Bacon would have been hard put to match the tales so widely circulated here. It is an education in itself to listen to " M " Company ' s own Cassanova.

It is very difficult to point out any man ' s pre- eminent characteristic, but with Rod we believe that his keen and ready sense of humor is out- standing. For example. Rod has a ilciidcd temper, and although he usually keeps it under control, it oc- casionally flares up. Within a short time, however, he is again his smiling, contrite self. Even with our own L. I ' , grinds — which are occasionally pretty bad — Rod always has great difficulty in preserving immobility of countenance. Rod is a eoulirme l blind dragger. He is too good- natured to refuse anyone a good turn, and, con- sequently, has the liighi ' st blind dragging average of anyone of mir ar(| Mintancc, To have lived with Rod lias been one of the bright spots in these four years. We know that the Doughboys will gain a good officer and a gentleman when the Corps loses one. ACTING CORPORAL (3) CORPORAL (2) SERGE.

July, 19 ' 2(i, there entered the Academy from the state of Idaho, a cadet who possessed those in- tangible qualities which make a leader. " Charley " Chandler had spent three years at college before he came to West Point: he had been in the Idaho National Guard, and he had taken a course at Fort Benning. In spite of these advantages, he was one of us, and no expression of superiority coidd ever be seen in him. We can well remember how, when still a Plebe, he explained the intricacies of " Descrip " to Yearlings who were having trouble. There was nothing which Charley would not do for a classmate. P " or this reason, and many others, he was well liked, not only by our class, but by those above us. When his career in the Army was cut short by an untimely death, the service lost a fine officer, and West Point, one of her most promising sons. Cadet Chandler is worthy of the highest tribute that can be i)aid to any one — He was a man. X Paul Clark, Jr. TWENTY-SECOND DISTRICT, NEW TORK WASHINGTON, D. C. Well here he is, the Paul Clark of Washington — young, handsome, and debonair. And another femrae ' s week-end is a success! Paul was elected a hop manager for the sake of the blind drags, for, though he may have left his heart down by the Potomac, his Irish tongue came with him. When he entered as a Plebe, the Powers-that-Be enlisted him in good ole " E " Co., and after three years of untiring effort, his true worth was recog- nized. They rewarded { ' :) him by promotion to the Third Battalion. It was on the Virginia trip that Paul finally came into his own. Then we discovered his many accomplishments, which stamped him a true son of the North Battalion. We can all say that our four years with Paul have given us the opportunity of knowing a splendid classmate and a fine friend. ACTING CORPORAL (3) CORPORAL (2) SERGEANT (1) HOP MAN.

He is even from birth, a true son of West Point. His four years here have marked the culmination of his childhood ambition to be a part of the brilliant display that daily met his eyes. Plebe year found Frank, a buxom youth fresh from " tin school, " ready to take his place and do his share, albeit the effort cost him thirty pounds of his precious avoirdupois. Quiet, unassuming, and often shy, his romantic nature has been often overlooked. In these four years, filled with intercollegiate fencing, balls, blind drags, and leaves spent in Washington, Frank has steadfastly held to the old proverb, " Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. " Like the flowers in the spring, love has bloomed in the heart of our classmate; like the birds in the fall it has departed, to return anew in different plumage. May such variety continue to add zest to this true connoisseur of all that is lovely in the feminine sex.

Due no doubt to his self-contanied sobriety he is not well known to a number of his classmates, but by those who do know him, he is greatly admired and respected. Dark complexion, dark brown eyes and hair, he exerts an easily understood attraction over the femi- nine of the species, yet coolly indifferent to the female lure he observes a state of celibacy, cruel in its severity. His story is briefly told; flowery words would be inappropriate. Either the . ir or the Engineers will claim him. To whichever arm he goes he will be well adapted and of no mean ability.

Here is perhaps what might be an unusual biography, and is without doubt, an unusual, exceptional man. Read on. If some thoughtful person that knew this Sam Emery were requested to devise an epitaph for his head- stone, the most descriptive phrase that could be applied would be just two words, " He lived. " He holds life, like a wine-soaked sponge, in his hands, squeezes from it every drop, and lets the rich intoxicating fluid roll down his thirsty gullet. Each new experience is to him but a new toy. a curiosity to be inspected, studied, divested of its mystery, and then — to be discarded. He has thus acquired a vast amount of knowledge, a sort of knowledge that makes of him an interesting character. Paradoxical as it may seem, he is a romantic realist. Mentally, he is alert and apt. but prone to neglect less interesting subjects for the study of more interesting. Physically and mentally alert — capable in both mind and body — Sam is a man. f SERGEANT (1) A. B. FOOTBALL (i) (3) (2) (1) B.

It remained for Wank to correct this deficiency. Although differing from the usual run of Hoosiers in this respect, Ewbank has managed to achieve the self-same B. A. degree that is so characteristic of his fellow — shall we say — statesman. For three years. Wank, along with the rest of us, ignored various and sundry regulations which interfered with his pursuit of this so-elusive pleasure. But, it is a significant fact that even a session on the area failed to lessen his good nature and ability to laugh off the trials of existence. In our opinion, the degree of B. S. should also be appended to the name of Ewbank. In the artistic, elaborate, and exaggerated portrayal of real and fancied past escapades, Wank is peerless. As to other activities, we will only mention that being endowed with ambition to become a good rifle shot. Wank achieved the distinction of being the best in the Corps.

Starting out as a goat he demonstrated that the rarefied atmosphere of the upper sections is open to every- one. Buck applied persistent determination to everything from wrestling to academic work. However, he is quick to recognize the right of superior knowledge or ability in any argument and quick to learn from his opponent. Sensitive himself, he respects his associates ' feelings. He enjoys an argument, but unlike many men, he is willing to listen to the other side of the question.

Evidently that same big brother had cautioned him that a Plcbe should neither be seen nor heard. Con- sequently, during Plebe year, the only trace we had of Bill was the record of his campaigns listed on the delinquency sheet once or twice a month. But after Plebe year, the Yearling stripe and sum- mer camp wrought wonders. It was then that Bill decided to make himself known to all concerned. In a very short time we all had found a very dear friend. Bill ' s popularity lias several worthwhile reasons; one is his unlimited good nature; another, his un- tiring willingness to help a classmate; and still another, his ability to describe the glories of old Kaintuck — namely good-looking women and fast horses.

And as the Tactical Department, which is a much better known judge of military matters than the Howitzer, has chosen him Captain and Supply Officer, you may be assured that he is a very well-rounded man. Gundy is one of those rare types which are bound to be noticed. Star man and Rhodes Scholarship Candidate, he has enough conspicuous traits, but no description of the man would be complete with- out a mention of his charm in casual conversation.

Despite carefree gait and good-humored twinkle of deep blue eyes, the hand- some inconnu stood strangely apart from his fellows. A certain dignity of bearing marked him as no ordinary candidate, but rather as a man well-versed in the ways of the world gazing with good-humored tolerance at the plight of his less-fortunate fellows.

It is the reserve of a gentliinan. Hut back of this reserve, one can. from time to lime, catch glimpses of the true charac- ter of the man.

Jim is one of the two men wearing three gold stars on his " . , " he is captain of . rmy ' s U).SO track team and is one of the few " bucks " of the First Class. During his First and Second Yearling years the hops held no attraction whatsoever for him, but some remarkable event that must have occurred during his second furlo changed him to one of the biggest snakes of our class. He is well known and well liked. But above all he is ever carefree and always cheerful. ACTING (ORPOHAL (.

Nothing has ever changed Jim ' s quiet smile or caused him surprise. When not on the football field or in the tank, he can usually be found at home ensconced on the red comforter with i)lenty of boodle, skags, and a good book. Jiinmie, imlike so many cadets, does not live by enlarging the memories of the last drag or week-end but looks forward with genuine anticipation to the ones yet to come.

His versatility and ability have dis- tinguished him from less fortunate ones here at the Academy, and these same attributes will always preclude the possibility of his being relegated into a minor position elsewhere. Mac ' s life at the . cademy has been an extremely busy one. His activities have been varied, . thletics, Sunday School, and femmes have occupied too much of his time to allow for many leisure moments. It is rare that one man excels tosuch a marked degree in so many departments. Mac rates for his work here at the . cademy an appreciation which his classmates w ill endeavor to render by their eternal friendship. He will try his hand at anything and, the unusual feature is he will do it. Endowed as he is with traits capable of inspiring trust and obe- dience in others, he is well qualified to be an army officer.

He had very little to say during Beast Barracks, got his share of trouble, and did his share to help everyone along. Herm had great athletic potentialities and a fine gridiron record, but he became a casualty at the start, and a fragile collar-bone relegated him to the stands. First class year, however, saw him coaching the " L " Co., intermurder squad with a success that proved his knowledge of football. Ohme was an incorrigible Goat until last year, when he amazed amateur psychoanalysts with n complete reversion and supreme successes. Herman is a good file, wields a mean broom as room orderly, and in general is a congenial wife and a good friend. May the hand that guides the broom so skillfully do as svell with the joystick. Brooklyn lost and the Army won when Dick chose West Point as his Alma Mater. To all followers of . rmy he is known as the highest tyi)e of athlete and sportsman. Football and Lacrosse have a large share of his time. Well do we remember the big number " 15 " in play after play, tackle after tackle. Lacrosse is a rough game, but " the harder the better " is Dick ' s opinion. His passes and tries at the goal are rifle shots for a defending goal keeper to stop. The one branch that holds his eye is the ( ' a alry. He says " Without, " and we believe him. His heart lies deep within, and no member of the deadl.v species has yet captured it. The highest compliment wc can ])ay liim is that he is a man in every sense of the word — always an jffir i ' ntIcMu;in. and a West Pointer.

Ross Thatcher Sampson SENATORHL, IT.tH OGDEN, UT. H JliFFKiENCY brings to the mind of a cadet rather unpleasant pictures of the person to whom it is applied. However, Sam ' s efficiency contains none of the objectionable features which have caused the term to be held in disrepute. He tempers his efficiency with reason, and corrects others without offending. . 11 of Sammy ' s time has not been occupied by enter- prise in routine duties, however. generous portion has been allotted to general entertainment of that enigmatical sex, which is so often at the same time the joy and bane of one ' s existence. However, his efficiency has enabled him to speedily despatch one after another. We admired his efficiency before, but we begin to envy it. Some may not desire power over men, but find the man who does not (secretly, perhaps) long for that dominating power over women! Hecause he can combine efficiency with sufficient tact to command obedience and respect, we ' re all for him. SERGE.VXT (1) . CTIXG CORPOR.VL (.3) LIEl ' TEN ' - N ' T (1) RIFLE SH.

Endowed with an admirable physique and no small amount of power and endur- ance, Schimmel found in the sports much pleasure as well as work. His achievements on the cinder path, the gridiron, and in the ring attest an all- round athlete. One remarkable and commendable trait is worth noting: Schimmel has remained perfectly oblivious to the fair sex, save in one or two instances. Force- ful, level-headed, and even-tempered, he is a leader that men respect and obey.

He is all that a runt may be and perfect four year wife. A genius for seeing the humorous side of a situation, even if the joke ' s on himself, his tactical ability in the social art was never more appreciated than the last night of furlo. His harassed wife was beset with two drags at once and fighting a losing battle with both, when Slats appeared out of the fog with his hat over one eye and a flowing line of B. S. which effectually calmed the troubled waters. While his academic ability was hard put to solve the intricacies of nickel-dropping in the subways, no one who ever went on week-end leave with Slats found fault with the contents of his address book, or came home able to say more than, " Did I have a good time? And how! " Pecuniary misfortune at the outset of one Christmas leave was balanced by equal good luck at its end. Inuigine arriving fifteen minutes late for the last train — these Ohio good-bye ' s are strenuous — to find that the train was twenty minutes late!

Life to him is a rather seri- ous matter, and everything he does is done well and thoroughly. Shafe ' s academic work illustrates this characteristic, for his retention of data is remark- able. When Shafe learns something, he does not forget it. The Howitzer staff owes him a debt of gratitude. Even since this is written, his work has filled in many gaps. In addition to this, he has contributed an excellent drawing of Washington Hall for a Chri.stmas card, and a real woodcut for a letterhead.

Moon ' s foibles are: telling how hard he works. although he was never known to concentrate for five consecutive minutes, and how cold he is because he has never become acclimated to our frigid tempera- tures.

Why is he so well-lilced? Other men are spoony: we call them " file-boners. " Other men approach his efficiency: we call them quilloids and other unprintable names. Now — why? It is be- cause Ralph has reached his degree of spooniness. his height of efficiency, his crest of popularity only through the ordinary run of events. He has not spent an enormous sum of mo ney on clothes in order to remain spoony; he has not gone out look- ing for dclin()uencies among Plebes, Yearlings, and even classmates to gain efficiency; he has not stayed up after taps to wear stars: he has not played " good file " to be popular. No, the honors and distinctions which are his have come to him through the natural course of events. They rightly belong to " Spoony Swofford.

Among his talents is the ability to make an apt reply or a well-put remark, which invariably evokes a gale of laughter. Those who have heard his voice raised in song in the showers, or other appropriate places, have been favored indeed, for this is another gift which the generous gods have bestowed upon him.

Andy was chosen as " It. " In July of 19 ' 2(i this then perfect man descended upon Beast Barracks in all his glory. Need we say that the glory was short-lived? Beast Barracks is an institution wherein all Plebes are equal unto each other, an l by the same token less than all others, save, of course, the household animals, feline and canine, of the Superintendent and Commandant. . long with the great majority of us . ndy emerged from this or leal i)rijbably with a less perfect con- ception of himself but considerably more of a man. Due to an intense interest in mathematics, he has always ranked in the top of his class academically. He was an engineer at the Academy, and, unless the lure of wings is too strong, he will doubtless con- tinue to be- one in the Service. William Henry Sterliii; Wright new JERSEY NATIONAL G I " A R D MOUNTAIN LAKES, NEW JERSEY A WELL developed body and a well developed mind is the shortest and most accurate way to describe Ster. As a writer of poetry and book reviews he holds the highest position in his class. Ster never ( riticizes another ' s taste in literature, but his ideas are strong, positive ones, backed by a warmth that only an Irishman can produce. Ster ' s father is an engineer, but Ster himself, in spite of high rank in English, history, and languages, is one of the few Immortals. It was during Yearling June Week that we saw him don the ominous white gloves, set his chin, and sally forth to fight the Math Department. His determination enabled him tobenumberedamong the survivors I if that Calculus tournament. A ready smile, a sense of humor, and a ' ontinual willingness to help, explain Ster ' s popularity throughout the Corps.

' espite all those observalions which old timers have been known to make in no uncertain terms as to where the (!orps is goin , it seems to us that West Point {lets belter ever ear. Every class witnesses something of a transition, or perhaps, better expressed, it is, in its nature, something of a link which binds together and keeps alive the old traditions, while noticing the changes which take place in the operating of the Academy. One of our first impressions of West Point has to do with an event which occurred on the gooil old ferr boat Garrison coming across the river on thai hot morning of July 1, 1926. We were the last class to use that old boat, by the way, for the completion of Bear Mountain Briilge just about ruined the ferry company, and now few people use the New York ( ' enlral via (iarrison, preferring the West Shore to West F ' oint. Anyway, on the Garrison that morning was a First classman returning from leave. He was in civilian clothes and we didn ' t know who he was, nor did we care very much, for that matter. We were too occupied with gazing at the mass of gray masonry that seemed lo cctver the hillside, while high above, among the trees, the tower 4 f the chapel M)nlil l)e seen, and farlhcr up the river, the white walls of Cullum and the ( miccrs " Club fairlv glistened in tlie ra s of an earl morning sun wtiicti ju t cleared the hills on the east bank of the Hudson. .As some of us left the ferr and started the »alk up the hill. this First classman shouted: " Hey, you men! YouM better get a la i up thai hill. You ' ll never get the chance lo ride again! " realitv for It sounded like hicii we were hard!) pre- pared. Little lid we think that two ears later, on fur- ougli, we would be just as surprised to hear that the Superintenilent had al- lowed the men in summer camp lo ride in automo- biles, on the post, simply on invitation. Changes are rarelv revolutionar . It is merely one ' s attitude toward the changes which partakes of that character. Looking back from the viewpoint of Graduation, Plebe year seems a dull and drab existence. In the main, it was dull and drab, and for thai reason, the things which were enjoyable appear as veritable oases. For instance, there was that trip to ( " hicago for the Army-Navy game. We ilidn ' t realize what we were getting, then, until it was over. The Corps had never had such a trip before, nor has it had since. We have seen plenty of football games, but none lo be remembered in the same way that that game is remembered. Army 21, Navy 21! It was a great game, and a trip which will stand out for a long time. Then came Christmas, and the departure of the upper classmen. For once we had the post lo ourselves. .As we look back, there are two or three things which we remember: the cold, freezing weather, and the deep snow on the ground, the piles and piles of booille in everyone ' s room, the Christmas trees in the mess hall and at Cullum. and the hops at the old West Point Hotel. We were the last class lo u-e that old hotel, too. for the next fall its contract ran out, and the Tlia er became the oflficial post li..stclr . After t!hristmas a period of gloom ilescended, many of our classmates passed out of the picture via Math, or Frog, or English, and it seemed that spring would never come. Finally, however, the grass came up, the leaves appeared, and before we knew it, June Vt eek was upon us. There are several things one remembers from Plebe June Week. The endless parades and reviews, the music from Cullum at night, the old grads " return, the First class going front and cen- ter, the event of events, RECOGNITION and finally.

LLliiU Page Two Hundred and Thirteen Page Tiio Hundred and Fourteen Is there any feeling romparable to that of a new Yearling the day after Graduation ' Here he is, king of the earth and all he surveys. There is hardly anyone to say so murh as " booh " to him. Gone is the old First class — graduated. Gone is the new First class — studying aviation and artillery in a prac- tical way on what is now known as the " Virginia Trip. " Gone are the detested Yearlings — now Second classmen on furlough. Even the tacs seem to be taking a rest. Oh, it " s great to taste freedom, and authority, and ease, all at once, where yesterila it was Mister Ducrot, do this and Mister Ducrot, do that! But even " Yearling Deadbeat " can pass, and we moved into Camp Clinton with an agreeable First class. August 1st the new Plebes came over for drill, and we looked at them »i n- deringly. Were we ever so gross, so lost-looking? We were glad to know we were Yearlings, and had at least passeil through that ugly duckling stage of cadet life. Summer camp was enjoyable. We knew we couldn ' t go on leave, we had never been, so we didn ' t worry about it. The First classmen had had furlough, and now week-end leaves. They could not be content with West I ' oinl. But we reveled in the afternoons off, the swimming a t Delafield, the hops three times a week at Cullum (Yearlings aluays dragi, the canoeing on the Hudson, the picnics at Fort Put, and yes, even the Battle of the Torne which lojiped off the summer. To make things more inleroliii!:. the nio ic people were ariiiind willi their cameras, and we witnessed the filming of Dress Parade and Jf est Point. Finally, we moved back to barracks, there to tackle that stack of books which we drew at the Cadet Store. There is no " Yearling Deadbeat " when it comes to academics. The mys- teries of Descript, Analyt, Frog, History or English sent a few more men down the hill to the station, while others were turned back to join ' 31 and try again. Our first real leave from the Point came at Christmas. Not all of us were allowed to go, for demerits had taken their toll of the indifferent. Howev er, the majority sallied forth to either dazzle the eyes of the home-town femmes, or be dazzled by the bright lights of Broadway. Again the winter wore away. We saw an Army team lose to Navy in the final basketball game, and later witnessed a tie game in lacrosse with the Midshipmen, while the track and baseball teams were turning in victories down at Annapolis. The last Navy games were played when we were Yearlings, anil until a new agreement is made I ' iid ' s athletes will be the last 111 wear the " .V-star. " After all, however, the thing which we had piped since we first heard about it furlough — appeared, and clad in all the glor of our new civilian clothes we wandered off to all parts of the world to spend our ten weeks of undisputed freedom.

To others, canoe- ing held a thrill, or swimming at Delafield, or dragging to Cullum, the snake ' s delight. The mornings, of course, were devoted to drills, and then we learned of Lieutenant Kendall ' s " Move " and " Cross Over! " at bayonet drill, and how to manage those thumping Brownings. m. i Our bedding gets the sun A parade in white In the hipspilal We meet a Hudson Day Liner Miss Joan Crawford and " Bill " Haines on llip lij:!!!

West Point became a studio, first for the filming of Dress Parade, with William Boyd and Bessie Love, and later for West Point, with William Haines and Joan Crawford. Both the DeMille and the Melro-Goldwyn-Mayer companies used real cadets in many of their scenes, thus giving many of us a chance to fulfill that life- long ambition.

Yearling is the year of greatest study. There is no let-up from the demands of Analyt, Descript, Frog, History, English and Drawing. As a result.

Often, loo, the Corps must be reviewed by some prince or potentate. We had our share Yearling year, as every other year. But West Point always enjoys its distinguished guests, and the march and drill of the Corps is never better than when put to the lest demanded by the appearance of someone on the post who has never seen a cadet parade. Sometimes, as in two of these pictures, we have visitors from the skies who come unannounced. t:£s mM The reviewing parly, llie Governor of Rome and Grove Wluilfii, In prominence Reviewed unexpectedly by an Army liiiinp Looks like Curtis is studyinj; for ilie Mils ' I ' lic Ijlirnp sails away again General Siiii;li csciuls liis distinguished guests CiilliHM Hall, lli Mind drag ' s delight A paradt- willi Iwo plaloons in carli company line wmm Page Two Hundred and Tupiily ECONB CLA •H RESH from furlough ue turned our eye back to West Point with a greater vision, a more complete understanding, of the place than we had ever had before. It is the same with any- thing, " Familiarily breeds contempt " but " Distance lends en- chantment. " Cloistered within these gray walls we had learned. (luring our first two years, to fear West Point more through hate than love. Now, returning after ten weeks of cit life, we felt that subtle change which comes with a feeling of having possession, as contrasted with being possessed. Now, it was a little more our West Point, or would be within a year. Second class year is notably easy as far as academics are concerned. The course is Considerably different from that of the first two years. Chemistry and Electricity. Physics, Me- chanics, Hydraulics, Aerodynamics and all those related sciences might appear quite hard, but under Colonels Carter and Fenlon they fill up many interesting mornings. Spanish and Drawing occupy the time after lunch. We saw the first trip of the Corps to Boston since early in the eighteen hundreds and witnessed the downfall of a Harvard team before Army. We followed the team to other ballleficid-. slumped through our Christmas writs and left on leave in high spirits. The mor ale was low when we returned January 1st in the midst of what threatened to be a flu epidemic. It was well- handled, however, and no casualties resulted. But we had nothing to pipe. Gone was furlo. Now there remained a trip to irginia about which we were skeptical, and a long summer in ramp before another Christmas rolled around to bring our next leave. So, in spite of approaching First class year, makes and week- end leaves, Hunilredth Night meant little to us. It passed almost unnoticed, even with the speeches and continual sounding off of the Plebes. It was a good show, too — Toodle-OO, they called it, though it wasn ' t quite up to Goofy Chang of Yearling year fame. We thought about little, save whether or not there was a lecture the next day. We saw the end of drawing come and pass with but faint ent husiasm. Then just about the time we thought we were secure in our cocoon of lethargy, we suddenly found ourselves dumped into the middle of June Week. Classes were over and here we were left with but a few days until we became First classmen. It seemed that without warning the Class of ' 29 graduated and we were left with the Corps in our hands. It was just like the fellow who said, " When I was a little kid, niv father and mother died and left me an orphan, and I just laughed and laughe l, ' cause 1 didn ' t know what to do with il. " We did little laughing, but we didn ' t know what to do with it either. 1 ] m ni ra| m k Mp k -T w ' m i -1 m ' ■ : .cv; ' Chang, the 100th night show of 1927 Page Two Hundred and Twenty-one ii i ii i Page Ttvo Hundred and Twenty-two v i. Pecond class year also marks that long period after Christmas Leave which contains no holiday at all until the succeeding Christmas. After our return from furlo, we received the usual hazing accorded every new Second class by the Yearlings, who insisted on yelping, " Yea, Furlo! " at every available opportunity, knowing that all we could pipe was First class summer camp. But they failed to reckon on the Virginia trip, which came right after June Week, and on which several of the class had almost too much fun.

' uRiNG Second class year we watched the completion of the mess hall — Washington Hall — and now the old cadet store is giving way to a new wing on the mess hall building which will serve as a home for Mr. Scott and his crew of tailors, pressers, etc. Washington Hall was officially opened for Graduation Hop, 1929, and it is esti- mated that everyone wore at least two inches from his or her feet while dancing on the new slate floor.

It was the hottest day of the early summer. We sweltered and fumeil and fussed around until the special train linalh pulled into Baltimore about six P. M. The relief occasioned by a boat ride down the cool Chesapeake was indeed welcome, b ' ll we awoke the next morning with the Hotel (!hamberlain- an- derbill and Fort Monroe in sight lo find it as sultry as ever. The class was divided, one-third going lo Fort Monroe, an- other lo Fort F.uslis ami the third portion lo l.angley Field. After six days we rolateil. anil again in another six ilays, until everyone had visited each place. e fired the big 14-inch guns at Monroe, as well as the anti-aircraft battery, and the French 75 " s at Eustis. .At Langley we received our first taste of " wlial a stick feels like, " and how the ground looks from a couple of thousand feet up. We learned lo fly the old l T " s, though never solo: and even landed and took olT. with an in-truitor in the forward cockpit. The actual work, however, was a small part of llii- trip. Rarely did we have duties after luiu ' h or in the evening. So the afternoons and evenings were free, and we were afforded opportunities to see something of thai part of irginia. Brush- ing up on our history, we visited Vorktown, where Cornwallis surrendered: Williamsburg, first capital of the state, and James- town, the site of the first permanent English colony in America. Later we made a trip to the Norfolk Navy Yard (which, strangely enough, is near Portsmouth I and there we saw some of the Navy " s great battleships. Nor was everything either a duty or an education, unless Virginia femmes fall within one or both of those classes. We went to dances at the Coast Artillery School, at the officers " clubs at Langley Field and Fort Eustis, at Virginia Beach, Ocean View, and even Buckroe Beach. These beaches were fine for swimming, loo, and we made the most of it. Finally we assembled at Vorktown and bade the Old Domin- ion good-bye. sailing lo Itallimore and on to Fort Meade by the W. H.

After a two-day demonstration and a Fourth of July Ho|i at Fort Meade we boardeil the train for a through trip to West Point and Camp Clinton. .Sailing smoothly, ever so smoothly, and then — !

True, quite a few " boneil their red comforter " uniler the trees on Fort Clinton parapet. but some got up enough energy to accept a ride to Delatield Pond for a swim, while others went privilege riding.

Drill in camp every other du helped to break the monotony of a constant stream of " Stand up. Mister! " ami " Swing our arms. Mister!

At least it can be said that First class ilrill i. more inlere lin!; than that of Yearling summer. We built bridges, thereby learn- ing a little practical engi- neering; operated Signal Corps telegraph and radio sets, and made military sketch maps of the West Point area. Perhaps the most interesting week was the one spent on the (Cavalry hike. Each week two companies packed up in full fighting equipment, mounted their horses and roile out to camp near Popolopen Creek. Each morning a problem was fought, but the enenn, con- i ting of men from the Military Academy Cavalry Detachment, was not always defealeil as promptly as some of the famous Cavalry leaders might have desired, .

The barracks lay gutted as though by fire, like a dead man sprawled out over the area, silent and forbidding. Occasionally a newly-made Yearling would sneak out with a scavenged dress coat or some left-over white trou, and scuttle back to camp, all unaware that his prizes would be sacrificed at the feet of the great God Appearance at the first clothing inspection. Where are the Yearlings of yesteryear, those new Second Classmen? Some are going home, others abroad; some will rest while others labor. Much depends on how well they stand in the eyes (and pocketbookl of their parents. To every furlough-bound Second Classman those train wheels seem to sound out, over and over, " Kansas, " " Florida, " " Maine, " " California, " " Ohio " or whatever his home state happens to be. As be lolls back in the Pullman in his cits, he is filled with a certain sense of uneasiness and an unmistakable ego.

Fooil for serious thought there is, in the varied lives that we lead on furlough. It seems that, after all, there is a certain inipermanence even among us.

Academics and football both rush in to drown all memories of furlough. Then the Tactical Department rushes in and drowns all hope of next year ' s Christmas leave.

It does rain, and nets two demerits for no low overshoes. This Second Class year is no deadbeat. That name was at least a mis- representation.

When we grow old, we can sit back and talk about: " Now, when I was a Second Class man and Red Cagle was at his zenith ... " And our own classmates showed to advantage — Ed Messinger, Polly Humber, Sweep Bowman, Blondy Parham, Tim Malloy, Carlmark and Miller, the invulnerable roommates — tliey seem to be a large portion of the team. Christmas leave for most, the Stanford trip for some, and the Spic turn- out writs for a few of the boys who talked too often in the hallway of the third floor. Christmas leave was pretty good ; leaves are almost taken for granted now, however. The Stanford trip was the greatest ever made by a football squad.

The bottom drops out of everything a nd it seems as though the sun will never rise again.

The Yearling ' s sensations were curi- ously mixed. There was a bubbling elation that went to his head like wine, and yet he had at the same time a spacious sense of freedom and quiet content- ment. After Graduation, his was the only class at the Academy. Yearling Deadbeat, with seven o ' clock reveille for His Worship, and a vast cathedral-like new Mess Hall in which to rest his long-hidden hands on the table. A week before the First Class came back from Virginia the new Plebes arrived, heirs to the solemn novitiate the Yearling had just renounced. Did these trembling, sweating semi-civilians suspect that the white-gloved martinets who received them had been Plebes themselves less than seventeen days before? With the facility born of recent experience, the Yearling jammed necks well to the rear, and lectured tersely on the conduct becoming a gentleman new-Cadet in Beast Barracks. After a grueling week of work and responsibilitv the Yearling Beast Detail turned their job over to the now-returned First Class, and went back to the brown tents of Camp Clinton. Three stripers admitted that things were not tied up as badly as they might be. High praise! During July and August the Yearling discovered a new and startling truth. Summer Camp is what you make it. Lots of golf and tennis, a little jutlicious femme-dragging, and lazy bull-sessions in the dusk of Fort Clinton parapet — with these things, he found Summer Camp could be a remarkablv pleasant place. Infantry skirmishes were rather more amusing than the nine-month campaign against the Academic Department. It was good to be out of the shadow of the Almighty Tenth.

Humors of an enemv encamp- ment in the vicinity of the Torne. Hastily the Corps was organized and rushcil to the front, complete with rifles, machine guns, one-pounders and seventy-fives. It was a glorious victory. The Blues outflanked the Reds, or the Reds enfiladed the Bin somelhin w bile went supperless to bed the Yearlings shnnbered witii a clear conscience in a fragrant mattress of ba y- (dry as an English recitation. b die e it or not I . Camp Illumination was brilliantly successful. No, just good, (dean fun. The stags carried all the ice cream to their tents while the snakes were otiierwise occupied. iVext day the Yearling slipped a linenless dress coat over a grav flannel shirt and joined the niaridi back to barracks. Tnnnpets blared and Hags wavcfl, but our iiero ' s morale declined steadilv, for clouds were gather- ing on the horizon. The Yearling tightened his belt a notch or two, and plunged into the mazes of Descriptive Geometry. The air was a maelstrom of projecting planes, toruses and intersections of cones and cylinders. During the weeks that followed the Yearling became cynical. He Page Two Hundred and Sixty-three found that he couhl smoke in the hall of barracks and tliat his chin was pulled in rather mo re subtly. These, he mused, were the differences between Plebe and Yearling. Time passed. Parades, football trips, riding — then sannny appeared in the Mess Hall and Christmas approached. A final bout with Descrip ended the year, and the lucky ones swept off in a snow storm to experiment with this new toy called Christmas Leave. The others made the best of it, skating at Delafield, hiking in the hills, and keen-filing the Plebes. Some, after a day or two, rushed off to join their classmates, but a few I sweet souvenirs of Summer Camp ! I decided to spend the holidavs at West Point. A new year has been compared to dawn. For the Year- ling it was a dark, bleak dawn, with no promise of sunshine or fair weather. Drab months plodded past in unending proces- sion. Life was a blind drag — one that turned out as badly as usual — Foundation — Calculus — Barracks guard — Singing in the Bath-tub — Moby Dick — Quill — Fesses— Slush— Black reveille. Then Hundredth Night came, and with it the first faint realization that furlough was actually on the way. The earling began to howl at the moon with real fervor and enthusiasm. Days of drill, parade and intramurder were only milestones. Every recitation left one less until the end. June Week. Summer Camp sprang up again like a bed of mushrooms, and Plebe sentinels paced the graveled paths. The rest of the story is yet to be told. Is furlough a seventh heaven of dreams, or is it a snare and a disillusion. Or is it, perhaps, something that is not quite either one? The Yearling intends to find out.

A part of the Corps, yet apart from it, our history this year has been that of the entire Corps, rather tlian of a distinct class; for Plebes have no class distinction. We have passed through a year little different from all Plebe years before ours and all that are to come, but, to us, it has been an epoch. To us, July 1, 1929, was an unusual July 1st, unlike any July 1st that we had ever seen. This memorable day found us, some four hundred and twenty strong, straggling up the long steep hill that leads from the station to the summit of the great gray walls of West Point. Once at the top, most of us paused to consider our new surround- ings and to wonder many things. We wondered if we would like it here; we wondered if we would make good. Success, which seemed so certain at home, held a new meaning for us — a meaning not quite so full of confidence. We were not left long to our thoughts. " Who are you, man? " " Report to the Cadet Store — step out! " " D ' you think this place is a joke. Mister Dumbjohn? " Assuredly, we did not. Confusion. Gone our serenity. We entered a chaos from which we were not to emerge for two entire months. Few of us can remember the first days. White-gloved, stern-faced Cadets — the very demigods we presumed to think of becoming — ordered us about in a way which left nothing to be said and which was surprisingly effective. We quickly lost all sense of time, all sense of individuality. Memories of those days are still in tumultuous disarray. We have visions of marching on the area — quick step, step, step; of our class, formed in a hollow square upon the plain, taking the oath of allegiance; of dovd)le-timing to drill; of meals at which we ate vora- Page Two Hundred and Sixty-six ■V l !» ■■. liljlLil l •i " - FOIRTH CLASSMEN ciously and awkwardly, our eyes {lined to tlie table: and of the long: eool eveninfis spent in shinin;: endless hits of hrass, arran !in equipment and heroiuin ; aequainted with one another. During the first week of Beast Barracks, we were trained entirely un ler the directions of a Yearlin ; Beast Detail. As the first Plehe class to he so trained, we should he thouglitless indeed if we did not con- gratulate them on their efforts. As a Beast Detail, they are unsurpassed. Fresh from the mill to which they suhjectefl us, thev were qualified in every way to see that we didn ' t miss a thing — and we didn ' t! The arrival of the First (Mass, fresh to the fray and eager to assume its responsihilities, was a distinct event in our impressionahle lives. The new detail seemed at first to he harder than its [)redecessor, hut we were not slow to appreciate the more mature guidance which though it made life no easier for us — won our respect. August brought with it our Presenta- tion to the Corps, the first parades and (ruard Duty. It would be hard for us to forget our first guard tours. Through the early evening we would walk, a little conscious of our position. The guard is important ! Then, too, the stillness of the night around a camp and the ' oming of dav are not easily forgotten. Plebe Hike came at last. itli packs and rifles on our shoulders, we set out for the magic lands of Popolopen and Round Pond. Packs and rifles acquired, as we marched, a weight out of all proportion to the dust they collected. Frigid nights were relieved only by the attentions of busy yellow-jackets, and by the more Page Ttoo Hundred and Sixty-seven welcome entertainments given by members of the Post Cavalry, by our classmates, and by the engineer detachment at Round Pond. The fourth day of marching found us back at West Point, and Beast Bar- racks nearly over. The return of the Corps to barracks was full of interest to us. The old days of " First Company " and " Second Company " ' ended, we moved into new quarters and acquired new roommates. Second Classmen back from furlough lost no time in assuring themselves that the new Plebes had been well-trained. It seemed for a while that the rigors of Beast Barracks were to be renewed, but, with the advent of academic work, we settled down for the first time to regular routine and a life comparativelv undisturbed. During the Fall, the monotony of study was broken by football games — games at which we sang and cheered with all our might, feeling each time more of the spirit of the Corps. The trips to Boston, New- Haven and New ork made us live torn between reflection and anticipation. Gymnasium filled our morn- ings, taking away memories of the blackboards. Boxing, apparatus work ( " Carrv vour hands back! " I, wrestling, fencing — all served to teach and mold us. In the section rooms, we delved into the mvsteries of the Courier Problem or learned to say, " Mon Lieutenant, il ne manque personne. Statement, sir! Cadet Ducrot is absent, sir! " Christmas was all that we had wished it to be. Those first hops are not to be forgotten. We sensed a new atmosphere in Cidluni Hall — an atmosphere of gayety which had been lacking at dancing instruc- tion there last summer. There was peace and plenty; boodle from home, from friends, from the O. A. O. — even boodle in the mess hall. Rest and sleep, dances, boodle, femmes, the Thayer — paradise, except for those of us who faced the dreaded turn-out writs. New dear ' s Day — the morning after — arrived all too soon. Good bye, femmes! You ' ll soon dance here again, perhaps, but not for us. Upper Classmen, exhausted from strenuous good times, drop in. Good-bye freedom! We shall see you again, we hope. . . . There is a period here, from New Year ' s Day till Hundredth Night, during which the optimist lowers his voice, and Gloom, with Spartan solemnity, reigns supreme. Foundation, with the consequent loss of classmates for whom we had known aff ' ection born of comradeship, leaves vacant seats at mess, vacant files in ranks, vacant rooms. We have learned to be stoical, even to take a pride in the hardships of our life. But this period is best forgotten. Hundredth Night marks a new era. A hundred days to go! Let them do as they will, we are through now! We can see Recognition looming up as a reality. We can hear the long " Yea, furlooooo! " rising from the area. We know that we are finishing an epoch which has changed us. We have a share now, not only in receiving but in carrying on the traditions of the Corps.

We like to think that the mess hall is a typical cross section of cadet life beneath the surface, for here only of all places are we frequently together and coniparativelv un- molested. Here we are " at ease, " with the neces- sary exception of the plehes; and with the stinui- lating influence of food and companionship we talk over the events of the day, the niinntiic of athletic detail and the latest atrocities of the Tac- tical Department. Many of the old traditions of the old mess hall have been lost; we no longer throw butter at the painted, tantalizingly outstretched silk hat of a famous general; but that, even the irreconcilables must admit, is no great loss. One last point, and may many hostesses read and meditate hereon. We hate to be forced to eat cake, candy and other boodle at three successive teas of an afternoon; cadets like three meals a dav, and like them square. One otherwise esti- mable hostess deeply offended us during Christ- mas leave by apologizing for serving cabbage, when hers was the only substantial meal we had found during fiiree days in the land of afternoon teas and supper dances.

Athletic training for a Cadet is given with a view to having each graduate thor- oughly competent to impart instruction to enlisted men in at least a few sports. Consequently the more experience in athletics that a Cadet can have, the more valuable he will be to the Army and to the United States as a whole. For this reason every Cadet must participate in athletics. There can be no discrimination, and all must have an equal opportunity. I Page Two Hundred and Eighty-four LiELT.-CoL. H. C.

Novak, Army ' s track squad rode roughshod over all opponents to complete its third successive undefeated season. 1929 also marks the fourth year of the Novak regime, during which time West Point has only once found itself on the low end of the score in a dual or triangular meet. Columbia took the measure of the Cadets in the initial meet of 1926, but since then the Lions have hardly come close. AS hen April came around, the call was issued and more than a hundred men reported to the track. Some of these were letter- men, some Plebe stars, some men who had never run before. Coach Novak took them all and with his customary, " How do vou feel? " and I regardless of the answer! " ' ell. take two laps, " started to get his team in condition. For the second year in succes- sion, the s()uad would be entered in the Pennsylvania Relay ( " arnival, held the last week in April. In spite of snow and ice still covering the plain, the men nuist be whipped into some kind of sliaj)e. Then it was announced that a team would also be sent to the Drake Relays, held at Des Moines. Iowa. Tliat meant that the .-([uad must be s])lit. which would coii- se |uentlv weaken both teams. But Armv ga e a good account of itself. Fifteen iiirn ucre :-i ' nt tii Drake.

There, the shuttle hurdle team of Lichirie, Lev- enick, Vestal and Luckett sprang a dark horse trick hy defeating the highly touted Ohio State and Virginia teams to take the 480-yard shuttle hurdle championship. The final was run in the fast time of 1:03.3 seconds, lowering the former relays mark. Green covered himself with glory by taking first place not only in the broad Jump, but in the hop, step and jump as well. Piper and Vestal ran two, three, be- hind the champion Erik Kjellstrom, of Georgetown, in the 400-nietres hurdles, a n i i Cacle Page Tico Hiinilri ' d anil ISinely-jour race which neither of them had niii l)er()re.

This ability to take points in all events shows a well-rounded team, a team that has been coached not to rely on a few stars, hut on the steady plugging of every man. Perhaps the most sought for victory during the season was the one obtained over New York University in a triangular meet in which Haverford College was the third entry. The score was Army 821 9, New York University 6OI4, Haverford 11. Despite the brilliant work of the Violet stars, Phil Edwards, Joe Hickey and Sol Furth, West Point, piled up enough points to win.

Against Pittsburgh, Army rolled up its lowest score of the year, 76 ' , points to 49 for the Panthers. Pete Bowen won the 100, 220 and 440 for the visitors, but Army took all the other first places except the pole vault and high jump. Sprague again bettered 49 feet with the shot, and Jark threw over 150 feet with the discus. The season was finished at Milwaukee, where Army rolled up its largest score of the year to defeat Marquette, 95 ' , to SSjf. Captain Mike Treps, of the Milwaukeeans, won both the 100 and 220, and Morgan took the 440, but outside of that the Cadets were supreme. The meet was a fitting climax to a most successful season. That Armv ' s victories were not empty ones is shown by the class of competition against which they were pitted. The Cadet team deserves to rank as one of the strongest in the East by its victories over N. Y. U., Colgate and Brown, and with its wins over Pitt and Marquette, the West Point standard is raised even higher. One need only to look at the winners in the Intercollegiate at Philadelphia to see what Army met. Bowen, of Pitt, won the quarter; Kent, of Colgate, the 220: Collier, of Brown, the high hurdles, and Edwards and Hickey the half-mile and mile championships respectively. All these men were seen on the Army track this year. Jimmy Luckett, high hurdler and high jumper, will lead the team next year, succeeding Bill Hall. ith few men lost, and Leo Novak as coach. Army should be able to continue its undefeated record. il III il Page Two Hundred and A inely-eighl iii i i ii i im i J i imM r imii ii imiMi ii HUi i iiiM i ii i i iiTmi J ONO X . iTmSiiMumniiiii i W niiiiiiiriilliiiilltt ag PCCCV " ' ■ " iiULinuiimiiiiimmiiiiu PLEBE TRACK. 1929 RESULTS OF THE SEASON Mercersbi Rc Academy 78 Army 47 James Mo ROE High School 14 Army 103 New Utrecht High School 47 Army 75 •reat tilings are always expected of tlie Plebe traek team. No class in the Academy at present has ever seen tlie Varsity track team defeated. As a result a lo-or-die spirit has always permeated the Plebe squads. Although the first meet for the Plebes ended in a defeat at the iiaiids of the strong Mercershurg team, this year ' s s((uad was not lacking in spirit or material. This was shown in the second meet of the season after they had had a little more training when they staged a strong comeback to win from the .lames Monroe High School by an overwhelming score of 103 to 14. As usual the last meet of the season was the most difficult and rumor had it that the champions of the Metropolitan District, New Utrecht High School, would add another defeat on the Plebe ' s ri-cord for the season. However, the predictors were far wrong as the champions were taken into camp to the tune of 7. ' i to [ ' .

' 29 Mt is customary to classify athletic teams as successful or not according to the nuniher of contests they have won or lost. An undefeateil team is at once hailed as a potential " mythical " champion, while oftentimes the difference of one goal in the score of a single game may cause an excellent team to be relegaleil to the ranks of the season ' s failures. This is not as it should be. A team should be judged by its accomplishments, of course, but accomplishments are not entirely reckone l on paper. A seasoneil team, playing against inferior opponents ' might well finish its season with but one defeat, whereas an inexperienced aggregation might suffer several reverses, yet meanwhile Ia the foundations for a strong team in the future. On paper, statistics woulil inilicate the former lia l llic nio t successful sea oii. el llic a( lii;i! in. iini|di-lniMiil «il ' tin- l.mmi »illi the poorer record might well have been greater. The Army lacrosse team was as usual most successful. Ten contests were plaxed with ten of the best colleges in the country, and but two defeats were marked against the Cadet twelve. However, the true worth of the team is not so apparent from its very creditable record as it is from a closer consideration of the obstacles with which it was confronted and which it overcame. The bare statement that ten letter men of the great 1928 team which defeated Hopkins, OI nipic Champions, and completed the season with a single defeat, were lost to this year ' s team would itself seem an alnio l it is further considered that numbered among these ten were Harry Wilson, ISInnd Saunders, Skipper Seeman, Horn, anil Rosie O ' Donnell stars of national reputation and men of iron who rarely gave way to substitution the true situation will be partially understood, ( oach Touchstone arrived at the Academy confronted with the task of shaping a new team around three veterans, installing an entirely new system of play, and at the same time maintaining the traditional excellence of .Army lacrosse teams in the past. That he succeeiled in all of this and laid the foundations for a powerful 19. ' 50 aggregation are indicative of the success of his labors. .After a period of fall practice devoted to the perfection of -lickwork. and a trenuou month of pre-season conditioning, the untried twelve made its initial appearance before the expectant Corps. Dartmouth wa the hapless opponent. With an aggressiveness that swept the big Green team off its feel, the attack led by Phil Draper unleashed a barrage at the Dartmouth goal. Draper started things by twisting and dodging through the whole Darlmouth defense to the edge of the crease where he slipped a pretty shot into th e net- in the first four minutes of play. Long passes from the defense and short passes around the goal kept the ball in Dartmouth ' s territory where despite the efforts of the clo e defense, it remained for most of the game. When the final whistle blew the .Army twelve had piled up twelve goals to the visitors ' none. The Army rooters were surprised and enthusiastic. But one defect had been noted — a tendency of the inexperienced defenst to bunch at times — and this weakne s had not proved costly owing to the fine work of Goldberg in the crease. D. R. Neal, Manager . Page Three Hundred and Three W ' . Unfortunately the same weakness in the de- fense persisted on the following Saturday in the game with St. Johns and this time bunching |)roved disastrous. Again the attark started off i taking the offensive from the very first, and soon the score had mounted to three. As the half drew to an end, however, the Johnnies began to unleash a dazzling passing game that momen- tarily baffled the Army defense. Speed and aggressiveness, coupled with excellent stickwork and perfect team play, enabled the visiting attack to counter four goals in rapid succession. The hard fought second half failed to grant either twelve even proximity to the opposing goal. It might be of interest to note that this first defeat given the Army team was handed by an aggregation which completed the season with a clean record and was recognized as national champion. With the removal from the schedule of the an- nual Navv East " , Army ' s Ball game the ever strong Johns Hopkins team became the great objective of the early season. Johns Hopkins, slightly crippled from graduation losses but still bearing the well-earned crown of Olympic Champions and possessing a wealth of seasoned material, appeared far too strong for the green and somewhat problematic Army twelve. The game was played in a cold drizzling rain that caused speed and stickwork to be at a premium with the result that the contest resolved into a wild melee of swinging sticks and falling bodies. Army, profit- ing by its lesson of the preceding week, showed clearly its superiority in any kind of a game. In the first half the attack worked smoothly and Sundt and O ' Keefe succeeded in scoring for Army. In the second, Lovell and Vander Heide scored two more goals for the Black and Gold while Hopkins slipped but a single .shot into the net. Toward the n 7i n Page Three Hundred and Four loxm close of the same the Army defense was given the supreme tesl hv the tietermined and hard- tighling medicos, but here proved more than equal to the emergency, and the visitors found themselves confronted with an impregnable wall about the crease. Hard fought and rough as rm -Hopkins lacrosse games are ever wont to be — the game was nevertheless a fitting example of clean and fast lacrosse at its best. Showing continued improvement in all de- partments of the game Army defeateil Colgate, Lafayette and Hobarl in succession. The Colgate game was disappointing from every point of view but one: sultry weather robbed both sides (if i inr and the game became a rather listless .■ i liange of the ball by the opposing stickmen illi neither side over-exerting itself to score. Ill llic second period the Army attack managed to approach its usual form long enough to slip two shols by the Cidgale goalie, but during the brealhiii " spell that followed Colgate came back with two to lie the score. Realizing the necessity of a reversal of form, the Army twelve commenced to show more of its old fighting spirit with the result that two more goals were added before the final goal. The speed of the Army attack so evident in the Hopkins game was noticeable by its absence, while the de- fense likewise was considerably below its form of the previous week. Army ' s comeback in the clos- ing minutes of the game was encouraging, however, as it indicated that the loss of form was but tem- porary and that the team had not gone stale desjiite its " off " day. Three things made the Lafayette contest inter- esting, and these were first, the superb playing of Phil Draper upon the attack; second, the magnifi- cent defensive work of Goldberg in the crease: and third, the clean ami hard playing of both teams. RlCHARti ' I - (.IBNKK SWKS OnK Page Three Hundred and Five Jk Kin NEE Phil Draper dodged, twisted, and knocked his way through the entire Lafayette defense to srore four splendid goals, to say nothing of his invaluable assistance in garnering the rest of Army ' s total of seven. Goldberg, aided by a stone-wall defense, stopped every Lafayette toss but one. Although the result was never in doubt, the contest was interesting and well-played. Both teams showed an admirable fighting spirit, hut the superior stickwork of the Army proved Lafayette ' s undoing. As the game progressed the opposing attackmen showed plainly the effects of over-exertion with the result that Coach Touchstone was able to make many substitutions without endangering the team ' s lead. On the ntlack the Army combination of Draper, Vander Heide, O ' Keefe, and King worked smoothly, if not brilliantly, and with one exception early in I he game the defense was formidable and well- regulated. On May 4th, Hohart College was turned back by a 10-2 score. ■4t no time was there the slightest doubt as to our superiority. Draper, after a series of unbroken passes following the opening face-off, made the first goal. In rapid .succession Lovell, McBride and O ' Keefe took shots at the net which eluded the Hohart goalie. At this time the visitors mustered iridugh strength to take advantage of the forward |j( ition of the Army defense and scored a goal. Hobart ' s hard fighting anil accurate short passing game prevented the game from becoming too one- sided despite the top-heavy score. As Army ' s first defeat of the season came at the hands of the strongest team in the country, so did the second and last defeat come from a team which lost but to St. Johns. Maryland, semi-finalists in the Olympic trials of 1928, was potentially the best outfit ill iiilcrcollegiate lacrosse. The powerful I Page Three Hundred and Six 1928 aggrc aliun. one of the best, liail reinai aliiuol inlact while all of the other 1928 leaden- had suffered graduation losses. The Mar land men were fast, large and experienced. At the very outset they took the offensive and secured a lead that was helil throughout.

In the second period the attack was content to rest upon its ample advantage and look things comparatively easy. Army scored three times, while the Swarthmore attack managed to slip two counters into the . rni net as the game drew to a close. The Cadet team did well in all departments of the game. The decisive margin of victory came somewhat as a surprise following the rever.se of the previous week. New York University and Penn State were the last two victims of the season. N. Y.

Both offense and defense worked well, but a hard-fighting Penn State close defense surces.sfully held off the aggressive Army attacks for the greater part of the game. The season of 1929 was a year of preparation. Foundations have been laid for a great team. A A Goal? THE SQUAD new coach, a new system, new men — these have all slooil the test of a stringent season and next year will find them well-prepared for their campaign. The 1929 team succeeded by virtue of its fighting spirit and will to win. The 1930 team, led h Kenny and O ' Keefe, co-captains, will start off with this inherent characteristic of all Army teams augmented by a season ' s experience. We have seen what fight alone will do.

And it was not until late in the season and after tryin}: many comhinations that McGormack and Zinunerman got a team that really flicked. Many changes were made in an effort to get a real hall ' luh. Zimmerman was brought in from center to hold down second base. Bowman, a versatile player, was sent out into the pasture, where he showed exceptional form, thus making the precious third to " Folly " Hmnber and Liiuhpiist. " Polly " showed us how Babe Ruth gets them every time an l " Linky " displayed remarkable skill in spotting the f lies. In fact we almost saw him — fleet as a deer — skate after a few of them. At the beginning of the season, the new team that started lost a few. Errors were expected and happened many times. However, we made a goo l showing against the I niversity of Pennsylvania. Then came the Giants, when we saw many of the old time big leaguers in action and John McGraw said the Army sliowed excellent form. However, it wasn ' t imtil later in the season that we saw any of this excellent form. In the latter half of the schedule the squad made their opponents taste defeat. We took over Colundiia and iSew Hampshire when Heaucbamp stepped into the limelight. It was here that we saw him dis[)lay the (jualities that made him captain for this year. He allowed iVew Hampshire only seven well-scattered hits and did almost as well against Colundtia. As usual, Humber and Zinunerman both had excellent days.

MURREL Hutchinson BOSTON UNIVERSITY 0 ARMY 26 Captain Jones presented the Big Parade in four quarters on the afternoon of this game. Second team men mixed with the topnotchers, and third-string players went in alongside both first and second team men until all sorts of combinations hail been presented. The Yearling contingent was especially evi- dent. Hillsinger started at guard, and Glattly started at half in OKeefe ' s place, O ' Keefe being injured. Then in due lime Price. Trice, Spengler, Hillberg, Lazar, Carver, Golden, Stecker and Bunker all entered the game. And what happened? Cagle, twice All-American half and captain of the team, opened the season in brilliant style, carrying the first kick-off back 50 yards, and then slip])ing through for 35 more yards on the first play from scrimmage. In a minute or so Murrel plunged over for a touchdown. Neither team scored again in the first half. Substitutions were frequent. The first team opened the second half. Cagle returned the kick-off to the 35-yard line, then shot off tackle for 35 more yards. A 9-yard pass to Bowman was complete. Murrel tore through to the 10-yard line, and Cagle went over in two slants off tackle. Murrel made the third touchdown almost single-handed. He started a drive from Army ' s 46-yard line, wheeling off consecutive gains of 15 and 18 yards to score. The final touchdown came on a long pass of 35 yards from Hutchinson to Malloy. As usual, the first game told nothing about the team. The first-string players were in but five minutes, and only three or four simple plays were used. GETTYSBURG 7 ARMY 33 O ' Keefe resumed his place at No. 1 back in this game, and Bowman made his debut as first-string quarter. With the Army first team playing less than half of this game, Gettysburg was overpowered. Murrel plunged over for three touchdowns, and Cagle, although he did not score, got away for several long runs. Stuart and Green, C. E., track men. n 41 Page Three Hundred and Eif:lileen performed very well. Stuart swept around the flanks and slanted off tackle like Cagle himself; while Green, in MurrePs place, hit the line for sub- stantial gains, and galloped 20 yards for a touchdown after receiving a pass. Hutchinson ran 45 yards with an in- tercepted pass to Army ' s last touch- down. DAVISON After this ga fl orld came out " Wild Cats Nearh —ARMY 23 lie the New York tvilh the headline: Beat West Point. " They certainly scared us. Army, ex- pecting an easy workout for the Harvard game, took the field with a rather off-hand attitude. Frankly, the Walsh, B. boys were deadbeating; and Davidson clearly outplayed the Army first and second teams to lead 7-3 at the end of the half. Sixteen thousand puzzled people wailed and wondered until the . rmy first team took the field to start the second half. Things happened. Murrel and (!agle alternated in carrying the ball straight from their own Kl-yard stripe to the Wild Cat ' s 20-yard line. Cagle passed to O ' Keefe, who was downed on the . ' vyard line, and Murrel crashed over to make the siore 10-7. The tension passed. The remainder of the game was all rni . Cagle siored onie. and Sluarl did likewise before the contest ended.

The game. «lii li Harvard was generally expected to win. «a- a rough, bitter struggle from the start. Bowman, .Army quarterback, after running the first punt back 32 yards, was ta ' kled h ( iliigan. both men being knocked out. Bowman was carried off the field un onscious and was unable to re-enter the game. Early in the first period Army advanced to the Harvard I 1-yaril line, only to be held and forced lo pass on the fourth down. Harvard intercepted the pass and ran the ball baik lo the l2- ard line.

Wood drop- kicked for the extra point. Score. Harvard 13, Army (I. Harvard threatened again just before the half ended. The Crimson team advanced to Arniys 32-yard line, but a long pass grounded over the goal line ended the threat and the half. A.s the first half was all Harvard, so the second half went to Army. Soon after the kick-off, Cagle streaked around the f ' rimson flank for an 18-yard gain, plac- ing the ball on Harvard ' s 33-yard line. After an exchange of kicks. Army made first down on Harvard ' s 31-yard line, and from there Cagle twisted and squirmed his way to a touchdown. When O ' Keefe added the point from placement. Army trailed by a mere six points. A touchdown and converted goal meant the lead. They were not long in coming. Army took the ball in mid-field. Murrel, with runs of 21 and 12 yards through the right side of the line, and several short plunges, placed the pigskin on the 2-yard line. Cagle went over in two tries. Then pandemonium broke loose in the Corps as O ' keefe booted the ball squarely between the uprights to make the score Army 14, Harvard 13. Shortly afterward Harvard missed a drop-kick from the 18-yard line. Army look the ball and advanced to the Harvard 4r)- ard line. From here Cagle again broke away and sped to .Vrmys third touchdown. It did not seem to matter that O ' keefe ' s kick was smothered by the Harvard line. Score, Army 20, Harvard 13. By this time the game was nearly over. Harvard in desperation started shooting frenzied passes. Even when they worked the ball to the Army 45-yard line the danger seemed slight with only a minute to play. Then like a bolt out of the gather- ing dusk Wood shot a tremendous pass that sailed over the goal line into waiting arms. Wood ' s drop kick was perfect. Harvard 20. Army 20. The Corps was stunned. On the next kick-off Army fumbled and lost the ball on her own 2. ' )-yard line. Harvard immediately tried a drop-kick that was low as the game ended. In this fray the doubtful center trio banished all doubt as to their ability. Humber, Miller and Hilhinger stopped everything aimed at the center of the line. u Page Three Hundred mid Twenty Bow M 1 YALE 21— ARMY 13 Army was favored to defeat the Bull Dog rather easily. The Corps expected a walk away. But ale look us- took us fairly and derisively. The Blue team was unexpectedly strong; and under the spell of a little quarterback named Booth they worked lo perfection both on the offense and the defense. Without Booth the Yale learn was the team we had anticipated; with Booth the same team was more than we could handle. Yale opened without the services of Booth. Late in the first quarter Cagle intercepted a ale pass and ran 50 yards to a touchdown. Not a man touched g g him. Then, to start the -econd half. Murrel crashed Bk through center, broke free, and sped 25 yards for ' ■ SjB another touchdown. Score, Army 13, Yale 0. The ' W ' JBj f Army backfield had been gaining consistently. However, at this point Booth, 144 pound sophomore quarterback, entered the fray. The change in the Yale team was instantaneous. They played like in |iired men, and the remainder of the game was all Yale. Army was helpless on the offense. The Yale team started its first drive on its own 35-yard line. Booth, with deadly interference, carried the ball on most plays either off tackle or around end. .After one exchange of punts, the Yale drive gaining five, six, seven yards at a crack, carried over to a touchdown shortly before the half ended. Booth drop-kicked the goal. Army 13, Yale 6. The third period wa a duplication of the last few minutes of the econil. With Booth bearing the brunt of the attack, Yale swept over to a e «nd touclnlown, and again Booth made good the e tra point a about (id. (Mill Yale fan- went wild. Score, Yale 14, Army 13. A few minutes later, adding insult to injur . Booth ran an rm punt back 75 jard- through the entire Army team. Again be ilrop-kiikcil the goal to jilace Yale ahead at 21-13. There wa-- no more -coring. Booth nii-sed two drop-kick- from the field before he left the game in the fourth ipiarler. A- the little quarterback jogged from the field, thousands rose in a roaring frenzied tribute. Army could do nothing with the rejuvenated Yale team in the last period, and the game ended with the score of Yale 21, Army 13.

Ihe second and third teams played the entire first half. No one scored or made much of a threat. The first team played the opening twelve minutes of the second half. Cagle carried the kick-off back to mid-field, and in two more plays sprinted to the l.S-yard line whence, on the next play, he whirled around end for the first touchdown. The second followed immediately. Murrel and Cagle rushed the ball to the 18-yard line and again the red-head slipped around end for a score. O ' Keefe kicked both goals from placement. Shortly afterward, Cagle shot a 3(l-yard pass to Messinger. w touchdown. Then Murrel plunged many yards to score place, broke away for a fifth touchdown. It was all very fine, very simple, and very wet. ILLINOIS 17 ARMY 7 A throng of 68,000 witnessed this game. Illinois was the Big Ten champion. Before leaving the Point, the Army team would not predict a Cadet victory. How- ever, " We ' ll fight like hell " was their altitude. Two murderous breaks carried Illinois to victory. After the Westerners had scored a field goal from the 20-yard line in the first period, there was no threat until the middle of the second quarter. At this point the Illini rushed the ball to Army ' s 8-yard stripe, only to be held for downs. Murrel dropped back of his own goal line and punted a high, twisting kick out to the 23-yard marker, the ball landing scarcely a foot within the side line. Here the tale begins. Instead of bounding outside as a respectable pigskin should, the ball went flying straight back toward the two scattered teams. On the first hop it hit about the 12-yard line, then jumped up like a startled rabbit — straight through the entangled mass of men. Hands shot out from everywhere trying to nail the ball, hands were all around it, but no one seemed able to even reach it until the crazy pigskin drove straight into the arms of the Illinois center on the 4-yard line. He wheeled for the goal line and Bowman brought him down an instant later, but momentum carried the play over. The kick for goal was good. Fighting back in the same period. Army drove to the Illinois 17-yard line. Then Miller, P.

Cagle leading by four yards. Murrel attempted to flip a lateral pass to Red, but the ball never arrived. An Illinois end cut in like a streak anil was off 75 yards to another touchdown. Not a man touched him; and again the kick was good. The half ended w ith the score 17-0. In the third quarter, with a veteran Illinois line stopping every running play dead. Army took to the air. Cagle tossed the ball with remarkable accuracy — not for sensa- tional distances, but always straight to the receiver. Messinger and ► ' Keefe did some fancy catching. The passing brought the ball to the Illinois 5- ard mark with first down and goal to make, but four lu ty cracks at a stubborn line left three inches to go. But the score was only postponed for a few plays. Cagle soon passed to Messinger on the 9-yard line. On the next play Cagle hot through to the 2-yard line, and then drove over for the only . rmy touchdown. The kick was good. In the last quarter neither team could make any headway. Both lines played a great defensive game. And so we lost, scored on by a center and an end. Each team gaineil 122 yards on running plays, but Army passes yielded 121 yards against 38 for Illinois.

The first team was on the fielil for five minutes at the start of the thinl period and scored three times. Murrel plunged across the Dickinson goal twice and Cagle dasheil across once. Then the second and third teams carried on ami on and on, much to the joy of those who had chosen .Army in some football pool or other. Nevertheless, Dickinson contiimeil to play ball. Their fight bore fruit in the middle of the last period, when a clever forward pass was completed and carrieil thirty more yards for a touchdown.

Page Three Hundred and Twenty-three ■ HlLLSINtER strong Western attack that time after time threatened to score. Fortunately the defense stiffened at criti- cal moments and Wesleyan did not score. Only once, late in the second quarter, did Army advance into Western territory. In this half the visitors piled up eight first downs to one for Arnn . The regulars started the second half; yet for a while even the first team looked sorry, . rmy kicked off. On reverse plays, Werz and Franz alternated in carrying the ball for substantial gains through and around the Army line to .Army ' s 19- yard stripe. Here the boys found themselves just in time, forcing Wesleyan to try for a field goal that was wide. Then Cagle slid off tackle for four yards. Murrel plowed through the line for ten more. On the third play Cagle darted through a hole in the line, twisted past the secondary defense and dashed sixty-six yards for a touchdown. Glattly added the extra point as 1.200 greatly relieved Cadets stopped chewing their nails. Before the third period ended Messinger blocked a kick and Price recovered on Ohio Wesleyan ' s 20-yard mark. After three plays had gained as many yards, Cagle heaved a pass to Glattly who was downed in his tracks on the 1-yard line. Murrel went over in one plimge. The kicked failed. In the fourth period the visitors marched 55 yards to score. Once again they advanced almost to mid-field, and needed just one touchdown with point to tie; but Huniber pulled a Wesleyan pass out of the air and lumbered 45 yards to a third Army touchdown. Thereafter neither team threatened. Army did not look any too good in this game. The Westerners made eight first downs to ,4rmy " s one in the first half against the second string, which was bad enough, and then they rolled up eleven to the Army reg ulars " six in the seconil half which was worse. To quote the Herald Tribune, " Army will have to have a better defense than it showed today if it is to stop the mad march of Notre Dame next Saturday. " NOTRE DAME 7— ARMY Two rallies and the big send-off, 1,200 Cadets thinking only football, a tense, expectant atmosphere — that was West Point the week before the Notre Dame clash. To lick the Irish was our aim, and despite our setbacks, more than half the Corps expected Army to beat one of the greatest of Notre Dame ' s teams — a team that was undefeated and untieil after playing Indiana, Wisconsin, Drake, Georgia Tech, Carnegie Tech, Southern California and Northwestern. Playing conditions could not have been worse. The weather that froze 80,000 people dur- ing the game had already frozen the ground hard. The sensation of running on the fielil was that of running on rough ice. Moreover, a vicious wind whipped and swept over the gridiron. Glattly ' " ' ' s for the game -what can one say? — just a heartbreaking defeat jammed on top of others. With an Army team playing matchless, inspired football against which the most versatile and co-ordinated backfield in the game could not even threaten. Chance stepped in and did what the Irish could not do. Perhaps on comparative merit we should not have won the game, but we earned a very favorable tie. The most vaunted quartet of ball carriers in football struck something they had never met before a line which from end to end was invulnerable. Playing the entire game without a substitution Carlmark, Price, Humber, Miller, Hillsinger, Perry and Messinger smeared the second edition of the Four Horsemen as they had never been smeared before. The inspired play of the Cadet line was a Page Three Hundred and Ttteniy-four Pric revelation lo thousands who looked on in amaze- ment as play after play was stopped dead. Newspaper headlines describe the game graphi- cally. " Irish Defeat Army, 7-0, on Elder ' s 95-yard run. Notre Dame Halfback-Sprinter Intercepts For- ward in First Half and Scores Only Goal. South Benders. Playing Safe, Outclassed Rest of Game. " Army received to open the game. Murrel punted on the second down and Carlmark recovered, giving Army the ball on Notre Dame ' s 28-yard line. Here Army lost ground instead of gaining, and the Irish took the ball on their own 3(l-yard line. The rest of the period was spent near mid-held, with neither team having the advantage. In the seconil quarter Army penetrated to Notre Dame ' s 23-yard line, only to lose the ball on a grounded fourth-down pass. Then Perry blocked an Irish kick and Army took the ball on Notre Dame ' s 13-yard line. Cagle failed to gain. Murrel made two yards. On the next play Cagle trotted toward the right flank, then turned and tossed the ball diagonally across the line toward an Army man on the goal line. But Elder, holrler of the world ' s GO-yard sprint record, leapeil up in front of the Army man. snatched the ball from the air, and tore 95 yards for the only touchdown of the game. He had an even start with the Army defense, and burned up the sideline in a straight dash to the goal. No one touched him. (iarrideo kicked the point. Cagle ran the next kick-off back 25 ard anil a while later swept around the right flank for 35 more yard . Still neither team threatened before the half ended. The thir l quarter was played in mid-field as was the fourth. Cagle seemeil to be lo ose for one thrilling second when he ran back a punt 38 yards to Notre Dame ' s 34-yard line, but he was pulled down from behind. Neither team could make headway, Notre Dame played absolutely safe, and the wind proliibile l passing. The game ended with the South Benders in possession of the ball on their own 40-yard line. Not once during the contest, except on Elder ' s dash, diil the Irish gel within Army ' s 30-yard line. STANFORD 3t ARMY 13 This one was played over the bills and far away.

Wenonah Military Academy appeared next and again the Plebes ran roughshod over their opponents for a 53-6 victory. The big game — Kiski School! For weeks the Cadets anticipated this game, and were in perfect condition, so while the big Army mide was suffering in defeat at Illinois, the spirited Plebes held the strongest scholastic team in the East to a 6-6 tie. The Plebes led until the last quarter when a Kiski player intercepted a pass and dashed for a touchdown. The result of the Kiski game had a decided effect on the team. They met their last foe of the season. Dean Academy, and scored a 37-6 victory. Such is the record of the proud Plebes. No team crossed their goal line more th an once. They totaled 141 points against their opponents ' 31. It is certain that this team will furnish material enough to fill up the gaps left bv the graduating class.

On the basis of these bare farts, it may seem that Army ' s season was a poor one. However, when il is ( ' oiisi lered that of the six games lost, two went to the opponents by one point, one by two points, one by three point s, and one by five points, it would appear that the results are better than is shown by a mere statement of games won and lost. These games were all dose, a point made here, a shot which might have counteil instead of rolling off these would have changed the winner. Only Pitt was able to run up a large score, and this only in the last five minutes, when Hyatt and his mates put on a beautiful exhibition which took them from a one-point to a fourteen-| oint lead. When the season starte.l. I.eo Novak had only three First Classmen on the squad. Dick Hutchinson. Captain. Howard McCoy, and Hob Wood, had been play ing for four years. He had a wealth of Second Classmen, however, Krueger, Sirother, Blanning. Messinger, Mansfiehl, and Malloy, around which to fashion his team. In addition. Coach Novak had a likely- looking bunch of Yearlings, which included Adams. Karnsworth. Stecker. Besson. Abell and Powell. Of these, Adams and Karnsworth were lost before the sea-on -tarleil with injuries or operations. The year saw several lombiiiation- Irieil before the most uccessful one was finally found. Several types of offense and defense were experimented with, but for the most of the time, the team stuck to the short pass break-and-block play which most teams seemed to favor this year, anil which embodies part of the Novak system anyway. Kor defense, both the " shifting- ball. " a type of zone defense in which the entire team plays the position of the ball, and the " man-to-man, " were used. It may be said that the team worked its lloor plays belter than any Army team has iluring the past four years. In adilitioii. the ball was obtained on the center tap. frequently, ilue to the height and reach of Sirother and Blanning. who did the jumping. The final and most effective combination was composed of Krueger and Stecker at the forward positions, Blanning at center, and Strolher and Abell at guards. In aildition. Coach Novak had capable substitutes in Hutchinson, Messinger, Malloy. Page Three Hundred and Thirty-three Wood, Mansfield, McCoy and Besson. Blanning was a " find " of the season, his work being such an improvement over that of last year that it won the center position for him, causing the shifting of Doc Slrolher to guard. This combination had effective guarding strength, a high- powered offense, in the dribbling of Abell, the long shots of Strother, the one-hand counters of Sleeker, the con- sistent passing of Blanning, and the brilliant southpaw shooting of Krueger. These men played the best ball that Army exhibited all season. The team played two or three games of which they should be unusually proud. The season started off with a bang when Delaware was smothered 50-21. The next week Columbia, later winners of the Eastern Intercollegiate League crown, came to the Point and went home with the short end of a 37-31 score. The third game was won from Bucknell, 47-34, and it looked as though the team was on the way to great things. Then came the trip to play Harvard, a team which had been badiv beaten bv Page Three Hundred and Thirly-joitr Coluiiibia. Army entered the game a bit overronfident ami paiii dearly for it. The Crimson went on a scoring spree, after being on the low side of a 10-1 srore for the first ten minntes, and pnlled away to a nice lead. Army came back in llic -erond half, but fell short of making up the needeil piiint- and Har ard won 3(l-2. " . On returning to West I ' oinI, the team entertained I ' ciHisylvania. anil finished one point behind in the dosol guarding game of the year. The final score was 21-2(1. The shooting of both teams was ragged and it was anybody ' s game until the final whistle. Then came victories over New Hampshire. . ' i.

The Mountaineers uere not downed, however, and led by their captain. Glenn, rolled up baskets until the sfore stood at 35-all. Here the West Point team got down to business again and sewed up the game with a final spurt. This was a victory to be proud of. It was followed, however, by a loss to Princeton. At the New Jersey school, the Army team played as good a game as it had put up against West Virginia, but victory was denied them. Leading all the way until the last few minutes, they saw the Tigers jump into the lead and win 3.i-H0. This was a hard game to lose. The squad took it easy against Amherst and Johns Hopkins, both of whom it defeated. Then came another beautiful game. Army defeating Carnegie Tech, 49-29. The Cadet attack was well balanced and the powerful Skibos were unable to stop it. The first half ended 19-17. but Novak ' s charges flashed some real basketball to run up the score in the second period.

Basket- ball was bv far the most popular. Coach Novak inaugurated with them the same system as was adopted by the football mentors. Terry, F. G., ably assisted by Adams, G. N., imparted to the Plebes all that they themselves knew of Leo ' s style of play. The schedule laid out for the Plebes was one which proved tough enough for any good varsity team with the lessons of a vear ' s play behind them. Of the six games officially scheduled, the Plebes managed to come home only twice with the bacon, taking Mackenzie Academy into camp. 34-30: and also Dean Academy to the tune of 28-27. However, the four defeats came only after hard and fast games with the best of prep school outfits. Ma nlius won 28-20 in a last minute rally, as did Stuyvesant High of New York City. The city boys won the count 27-18. Then came Cook Academy with a well coordinated team of stars to win 38-22. However, the best game of the season was the last one when the Dartmouth Frosh played a perfect game to win 41-29. As for the practice games, the Plebes won handily with large mar- gins. Mackenzie was the first to fall and then came Storm King High. Although not quite as successful in collecting victories as they were on the gridiron, the Plebes proved themselves to have plenty of good material for next year ' s varsity. Epler, the captain, learned the game out in sunny Kansas where it is played as it should be played. He held down the center posi- tion all season and is the most promising of the material for next season ' s quintet. Herb, of Plebe foot- ball fame, Vidal, and Gregory, all guards, displayed ability which should stand them in good stead in seasons to come. Starbird, Guiiiey, White and Clarke at the forward positions also showed such quality as to brand them as excellent material for future varsity berths. Only three vacancies will be available on the squad for these men, but they most certainly will force even the regulars to step to maintain their places of glory.

Statistically the fortunes of the team were but moderate; ac- tually the results were extremely encouraging. The record of seven matches won to four defeats speaks for itself, but the true results of Coach Ward ' s first season will become more apparent in the coming campaign. Early outdoor practice was impeded by a dis- tressing dampness that characterized the begin- ning of April. As a result Haverford was met and defeated, 4-3, in but the third outdoor session. In this match. Helms, playing number one, looked like a potential star. His subsequent loss for the balance of the season was a staggering blow to the team ' s prospects. Notwithstanding these adverse circumstances, Washington and Jefferson were in turn tied and defeated. In the former match, Lewis, Stone, and Watson played their best games of the season. Three straight defeats followed. Columbia and New York University overpowered the less experienced Cadets by scores of 7-2, and 6-3. Cornell followed suit, but not until the last doubles match was over did the Ithacans have victory in their grasp. A momentary respite saw Army take M. I. T. into camp by capturing seven out of nine matches. The rally was short-lived, hawever, for soon afterwards a well-balanced Williams team administered to Army a 7-2 setback.

In fact, the golfers turned in the hest record ever made hy an Army golf team, and a record as good as that of any team in the Academy. In view of the wretched practice conditions, this accomplish- ment is particularly noteworthy. Opening the season against Georgetown, the Intercollegiate Cham- pions, in Washington, the team lost all but one point. McAIeer snatched the single tally in the second four-ball contest by winning the eighteenth hole. From the Georgetown meet straight through the season the team was victorious in every meet. Lafayette fell the following Saturday, and M. I. T. bowed the next week. Then the team defeated Colgate and Union on successive Saturdays, and ended the season by crushing Fordham, 11-1, in an eight-man match. One of the outstanding players all season was Parker, T. W.. whose excellent play proved valuable week after week. Since Parker looked good in practice, Mr. Canausa took him on the Georgetown trip. Parker 1 remarkably well by himself and the team, shooting a neat 79 over the long Congressional course to lead the Army scorers. This perform- ance gained him a regular berth at No. 2, where he went through the season with four wins against two losses. Parker ' s team-mate, Blanchard, held down the No. 1 position for the third straight year. Against the best men of the opposing teams he won four times and lost twice — once to Maurice McCarthy, Jr., of Georgetown, who shot two under par to beat the Army golfer. Blanchard and Parker teamed together remarkably well.

With scores consistently higher than before, it found the same improvement in its opponents. Shoulder to slioulder matches saw but one defeat, but the telegraph brought lots of bad news. The five-man team was almost entirely composed of men with but little match shooting experience. Moore, H., Vickrey, Kromer, Wall, T, F., and Hill, G. E., were the faithful five, with Fitch, Harding, Haas, and Herman as the substitutes to keep the home competition keen. In nearly every case they showed themselves as cool-headed, steady shots on whom the strain of a close shoot was wasted. LlhL ll•,. A T Co R.

Unsung and unheralded, the twenty-four Cadets, who daily make their way to the Polo Flats to carry on what seems to most of us but a continuation of arduous military routine, have done as much for the fur- therance of West Point ' s reputation as have any of their fellows upon more advertised squads. Not widely known to the follower of sport via the grandstand and newspapers, rifle is that one form of competition in which the Academy must perforce excel. An unsuccessful football or track season can be accounted for and condoned, yet an even moderately successful rifle season, computed on the basis of matches won and lost, cannot be countenanced at the cradle of the American military profession. The 1929 season was, as usual, most successful. Under the careful and expert coaching of Captain Macon and the able leadsrship of Cadet Milwit, the team won all five of its dual matches with several of the leading colleges and service units in the East, and finished an undefeated sea- Morrow, S.

The material was good and the spirit high. Experienced men were available for every position, and there was a wealth of excellent reserves at hand. Yet, the season was disappointing. Army took but two of the eight games on its schedule. Three ties and three defeats completed the record. Despite all of this, the team looked good. The margin of defeat was never great, and the aggressiveness and team play were all in Army ' s favor in every contest. Discounting the loss of the captain-elect and three regulars from the prospective line-up, the probable reason for the mediocre showing was the prolonged pre- season work-out. This carried the men too early by several weeks to the peak at which they could not remain. Staleness is the only term that explains Army ' s playing. Streaks of brilliant form, contrasting with ugly patches of ragged play, made the team appear unusually strong even in defeat. The Cadets ' good form sufficed to keep the ball constantly around the opponents ' goal, but crucial errors turned near victories into defeats. The first game of the year was with Lafayette. Possessing a veteran team, the visitors spent fullv four- fifths of the game on the defensive. On four occasions the invading team made short-lived dashes down the field to bring the ball within scoring distance, only to have it lost before any damage was done. Credit for Army ' s superiority in this game belongs almost entirelv to the back-field which, contrary to expecta- Page Three Hundred and Forty-eight Stone. A. C tions, loomefl a? one of tlie strongest defensive units in years. In niiil-fiekl the kiik-an l-run game of Coach Marchan l proved effective in advancing the ball, but in the eneniv zone the best efforts of the Army backs were of no avail. The final punch to score was lacking and the game ended without either side scoring. On the following week . t. .lohn ' s of Brooklyn journeyed to the plains. The Brooklyn eleven held a 2 to lead at the end of the first half, but the Cadets li l not p.rniit this to discourage them. Gaining speed and tr tigth as the plav went on. the Cadets eleven reached full stride in the third period and evened the -core before the game ended. Two extra periods of li e iniiiules each permitted Army to push over the w inning goal. In the next two ganu-s of the season Army did not fare so well. Western Maryland ' s early lead and slnbborn lefense gave them a tie against a siijierior Dll.iisive team, and the cool and careful dribbling play f Mc(;ill I ni ersily played complete lunoc with rmv kick-and-rnn ganu- and resulle.l in the Cana- ilian- annexing a victory in the closing minutes ol a rather slow contest.

The eleven liial took tile field against Springlield was a far dilVerent aggregation from that which had opened the season a month and a half earlier. Academics and Page Three Hundred and Forty-nine ;. m£M 353 - 1 WM Yates injuries caused an almost entirely new forward line to take the field in these last contests, hut the result of the chan ;es was hetter than anticij)ated. The offen- sive hecanie more spirited although inexperience resulted in many a lost opportunity. However, the few errors of the backs inevitahly seemed to result in scores for the opponents. The trip to Lehin;h closed the season. Again the measure of the Cadets was taken: this time hy a score of 2 to 1. A frozen field proved disconcerting to Army with its style of play, wherein speed and aggressiveness are paramount, and for three periods the Cadets were hopelessly bewildered. A last-quarter rally netted one goal, but the final whistle fomid Lehigh retaining its margin of victory. The 1929 soccer team was not brilliantly power- ful, but it was far from weak. Erratic and inconsistent play at crucial moments alone prevented it from the outstanding success that it deserved. Granted a share of the breaks. Coach Marchand sliould mold from the really promising material a fine team that will more than compensate for the reverses of the past season. Praband B ' ' ' ,d| i m ..

U., always a strong opponent, went home on the sliort end of a 4-3 score. Yale, too, came down to the Point and took one on the chin, 5-2. With the last meet a few days away, the boxing team was practically certain of an undefeated and an untied season, for West Virginia was the last opponent, and N. Y. U. had beaten the Mountaineers 6-1 the week previous. And thus on Friday afternoon the battlers headed South. Sunday morning at breakfast it was announced that West Virginia had beaten Army 4-3. Davis won the opener. Morrow dropped the 125- pound bout in an extra round. Bell lost the lightweight encounter. Roller was beaten in the fourth round, Little came through with a win, and Woodward was outpointed and Coughlin won. Figure that one out! The season opened with M. L T. meeting Army at West Pouit. Army won, 6-1. The following week New Hampshire went down, 5-2. Then on successive Saturdays Temple lost 6-1, V. M. I. lost 5-2, Georgetown lost 4-3, N. Y. U. lost 4-3, and Yale lost 5-2. On March 8th, West Virginia did her stuff to close the season. Roller, 145-pound class, made what was perhaps the most impressive record of the season. Although among his opponents were some of the toughest of the intercollegiate array, the Deacon won sLx out of eight battles. Against Temple, he fought the captain of the visiting team three rounds to a draw, then went on Mr. Cavanaugh, Coach King, L., Laptnin Broom. Managfr ■r r i Page Three Hundred and Fifty-four liKO N.

Two of his bouts were at 165 pounds, and one at 175 pounds. In the last he won a sweet battle to give Army a 4-3 edge over N. Y. U.

The Cadets won six meets and lost two close meets to Dartmouth and Cohnnhia by defeats in the relay event. With re ;ard to individual performances, the Army team was, without a douht. the most versatile fxroiip of swinuners since the institution of the aquatic sport at West Point. Hartshorn, a earlin;;, was the indi- vidual star. He nuiteriailv lowered the record in tiic 440 and .-liari ' il lionors with Davis, W. A., and Tiinberlake in the 100 and 50-yard dashes, respectively. Webster, another earlinp. consistently cracked the back-stroke mark; and Davis, after seeing his own mark in the 100 broken by Hartshorn, established another record in this event. Arniv won the season ' s opener with Lehifih by 41 to 21. The feature of this meet was Hartshorn ' s record- breaking feat in the 440-vard swim. Tlie Cariini; led (Captain (iarton to the tape by several yards, both men bettering the old time. The (Cadets next van(piished Delaware in an une(piai contest by a 56 to 6 score. Not one visitor placed better than third. Hartshorn and (iarton again furnisiu-d the excitement when they swam a record-breaking dead heat in the 440. The judges, however, decided thai Hartshorn was a sha le ahead. Webster likewise swam six seconds under the standing record for the back-stroke. Mr. Nill, Coach Page Three Hundred and Fifly-seven Davis, W. A. In defeating Colgate 50 to 12, the Army tankmen almost duplicated their work of the preceding week by cleaning up in all hut one event. The single hright spot in an otherwise uninteresting contest was Wehster ' s effortless shaving of one-fifth of a second from his week-old record. The first real competition of the season was encountered when the ever strong Pittsburgh mermen invaded the Point. With two of its stars, Garten and Webster, on the bench. Army was able to win by taking the relay in record time. The score of this meet was 35 to 27. The closely contested meet was also featured by Hartshorn ' s and Davis ' s dual in the 100-yard dash. Both men broke the hitter ' s record with Hartshorn leading slightly. At this point in the season adversity set in. Columbia ' s star aggregation, led by Olympite Ruddy, took its dual meet by a 38 to 24 score. An unfortunate turn in the relay when Army was leading cost the Cadets a victory. Ruddy and Hartshorn led the meet with two firsts apiece. Dartmouth handed Army its second defeat in the meet at Hanover a week later. Army took four out of the first six events, but the home team kept within striking distance with a monopoly of seconds and thirds. The final and deciding event, the relay, gave the Green a victorv bv inches.

Bra e duplicated his feat of last year in which he ruined Allan ' s record of strai :ht victories. For lhani presented little threat to Army after tlie first several events, and a victory in the relay was not needed to win the meet. Garton, swimminir second to Fordham ' s ace in the 4t0, finished his brilliant career at the Academy with his reputation as the jireatest est Point swimmer still inta ' t. In his final race he broke the old record hv six seconds, but lost first place by a scant margin. Tiinberlake was another capable performer. The star dash man ' s (piarantine for a jiortioii of the season prevented him from breaking his own record in the 5fl-yard dash, but did not keep him from makin : several excellent performances. Leary proved a consislenl di cr. and l.andon finished his swiiiiinin : career by excellent work in the breast stroke.

Not that the record is as brilliant as we hope and believe will be made during the next few years, but that it is a record which proves that victorious hockey teams can be developed here. And those who have followed the varied fortunes of West Points hockey teams can testify to the importance of such proof. Remember it was not so long ago when many claimed that good hockey teams would be forever an impossibility for Army because of weather conditions and lack of experienced material. The weather man has been foiled by using the Bear Mountain rink, and more experienced hockey players are being found in each succeeding Plebe class. Next year ice facilities will be even further improved by the completion of the Athletic Association rink now being built near Lusk Reservoir. The record of the season, in brief, is eleven games played, of which six were won, two lied, and three lost. The games won were won in a clean-cut manner through teamwork and hard play. The skating displayed was only average, though Lindquist, the versatile center, owed much of his success to the fast and tricky manner with which he could get down the ice. The games tied were a credit to the team, for the team never accepted a tie score until the final whistle of the extra period had blown, and the opponents that did force an undecisive score were of the calibre that in previous years have thoroughly defeated the local skaters. Now for the games lost. Though the sting of defeat was sharp, none left a feeling of humiliation, for the Army skaters were defeated in no case by an overwhelming score and the victorious teams were all in the A or B-1 hockey groups.

Then the team came out of the One of the Ficw Games the Kaydets Saw Page Three Hundred and Sixty-one mr ' i Darcy slump to vanquish St. Stephens 3-fl. On February 22n(l the climax of the season was reached when the Royal Military College of Canada came here for the annual game between the two military academies. The game was important not only as an international event, but as an exceptionally well-played hockey match. A large gallery, including eight hundred Cadets taken by busses to the rink at Bear Mountain, saw a clean and hard-fought game with every period packed with thrills. Lindquist, Waters, Roths- child. Goodrich, Tapping, Cotter, Darcy and Carter all played for Army, and displayed some really good hockey. R. M. C. finally won by a score of 5-3. The score was tied 3-3 in the last period when Lindquist made a goal, completing the work that Rothschild and Goodrich did in the second period. But Storms and Irvins each put one in for R. M. C. and clinched the victory for Canada. The final game of the season ended with Army victor over Rensselaer Polytech by a 1-0 score. It was the final game of Army hockey for Lindquist and Rothschild. They will be missed badly, but there are capable underclassmen to take their places.

On the next week-end we defeated Harvard, 9-8, which, in a minor way, made up for the losses suffered in football. At the beginning of the season, the team was strong in epee and sabre. The foils showed signs of weak- ness, but after the first few meets they improved and showed evidence of marked co-ordination. In the Semi- Finals and in the National Finals the foils will rank among the best in the country. Welile has changed from epee to foils.

II A II E A » I II D S Page Three Hundred and Seventy-nine n GREENLIEF WINKLEMANX W ROM time immemorial the name of Winklemann has played an important part in the life of Second classmen. His appearance has always given the Phil Goat unbounded joy, for, until the advent of Washington Hall, he always heralded a Phil Lecture. In the dark ages it was necessary for Winklemann to notify the O. C. of an approach- ing lecture; accordingly many anxious eyes would scan the area for his familiar figure. As soon as he was spotted, a lusty " Yea, Phil lecture " would resound around the area, much to the disgust of the First classmen. However, the Class of 1930 has the distinction of being the last class aided by him. During the era of the Old Mess Hall, when the Corps formed to return to barracks every Sec- ond classman would gaze hopefully upward. Sud- denly the time-honored cry of the Phil Goats would rend the air and we knew that Winklemann had o])cned the windows of the lecture room. " Yeah, Piiil lecture! " For forty-nine years Winklemann has been con- nected with the Phil Department, setting-up ap- paratus — assisting in experiments — insuring the punctual dismissal of sections — and even assisting the Professor. Many of his former cadets have risen to the nation ' s great, and Winklemann loves to recall them as cadets. He clearly remembers such men as George P. Goethals, C. P. Smnnier- all and John J. Pershing when they were strug- gling through the Phil Department. During his long service he has seen North Barracks a row of officers ' quarters — the Post Office and Boodlers side by side — and West Point without a football team. Winklemann retired from the Army in 1907 after thirty years ' service, and retired in December of last year from his service with the Phil Depart- ment. Of his seventy years he has spent sixty-eight at West Point and intends to remain here amid the scenes that are dearest to his heart. 7i Page Three Hundred and Eighty (VERY college and university in the Country has some sort of newspaper or magazine. Some have a comic, others a daily paper which carries news and sports, still others a literary periodical, or an art magazine. Thus, Harvard has its Lampoon and its Crimson. Yale its Record and its Daily. Brown its Jug. Princeton its Tiger, the V. M. I. its Sniper and its Cadet, and so on. Practically every one of these magazines clings to a re- stricted field. However, at West Point, we have only The Pointer, which conihines every form of college magazine, and presents to the Corps every other Friday night a new edition, containing, humor, art, stories, news, sports, poems, and other features. The Pointer is a youngster as far as age and tradition go. In fact, it is just ahout the most recent innovation made to the Cadet activities at the Aca lemy. Some desire to date its origin hack to the days of The Bray, which until its failure in 1920. served the ( ' or[)s in the same ca{ acily as the present publica- tion does today. However, in truth, - iuid cr One, Olume One. of The Pointer did not make its appearance until Septem- ber 15, 1923, and that date has been accepted as tli( official birthdav of the magazine. That first issue, published in High- land Falls, after manv long coiifercnc " s and correspondence IT J. J. Throckmorton Business Manager between Cadets, Robert J. Wood the Super inten- Editor dent, the Com- mandant, and members of the Academic Board, and only after many difliculties as to circulation, business, and editing had been overcome, was vastly ditTcrent from those editions dis- tributed during tlie past year. Each year of its history The Pointer has experienced great improvement over preceding years, and this past year has been no exception. W hen the present staff assunie l the responsibilities at- tached to pui)lishing The Pointer, it was faced with a problem [uite different from anv confronting previous staffs. In the first { lace. the rise of the magazine had culminated in the policy firmlv established bv last vear ' s staff of bigger and better issues. The improvement in all departments was more than merely noticeable, and circulation was around .3,000: considered a maxinuun. To equal these results would have been a worthy and ition for any beginners. However, with the year behind us, it may be said that, in the hands of the 1930 Pointer Board, the Corps " periodical has reached and surpassed any previous standards and has left for itself what seems in our limited vision a verv creditable work indeed, and a criterion for future efforts. Instead of sacrificing the features of many issues to permit Page Three Hundred and Eighty-one p. F. YOUNT Managing Editor Major T. A. Terry Officer-iii-Charge the publishing of one or two attractive numbers, it has been the policy during the past year, thanks to the energies of the business tlepartnicnts in providing the funds, to make every issue the perfect edition. That was indeed a difficult ambition to realize, for, as stated before. The Pointer is not a college periodical of the common run. It is not a humor magazine, a story magazine, or a joke sheet alone, but instead strives to unite all of these. With the possible exception of the Navy Log, it is unicjue in its endeavor. It has at- tempted to provide the Corps with a means upon which to expend any literary energies not spent elsewhere, with a dironicle in which their deeds would go down on record, with humor to drive away the ever- present gripes, and with one place where the works of the would-be artists in the Corps might get that encouragement not received after drawing on academic desks. In doing all these things. The Pointer has truly held to its guiding principle — " To mirror the life of the Corps. " In addition, it has carried features which should be of interest to anyone in the Service, it has given annual expression to the femmes who come to West Point, and it has rounded off the year with tangible assets and a circulation which now exceeds 4,000. The work in the issues themselves has been of a high order. The covers have been well-drawn and more than once have exacted remarks of a compli- R. X . PoRTKii, Jr. Circulalion Manager L. A.

Nor has the editorial department been alone in its excellence. It was the teamwork of an up-and-going business department which kept the financial end of the magazine in good shape. The circulation depart- ment was run with such efficiency that a minimum of complaints were registered against it. The untiring efforts of the advertising managers did much to assist in maintaining the high standard which is svnonv- nious with The Pointer. In addition, it may be said that the splendid cooperation of the publisher, Mr. George Moore, of the Moore Printing Company, of Newburgh, completed the work of turning out each edition a finished product. No longer is The Pointer to be classified as a good college magazine, but instead as an excellent one; one which future staff ' s may well be proud of. The standard established is high, but not so high that it cannot be equalled, and perhaps passed, with assurance of work well done.

Managing Editor out undue cynicism, the hopes and ideals of tlie ( jrps. To those of us who planned the book it has been a real labor of love. We were, fiiudly, selfish in our devotion to the book and to our demands on others. Hut there were many, not only of the First Class, but of the other classes, who were very generous of their meager supply of spare time and without whose help the book could not have existed. To do the detailed work of |inl)lishing a book of this size, and to carry on an advertising cam- paign requires an immense amount of plain hard work. And the battery of Plebe typists deserves all possible credit, even though they were interested mainly in getting to sit at ease. As we are graduated from West Point, an integral part of the Long (rray Line, so this Howitzer takes its place in the long line of books extending back through thirty- eight years of official and many more of sub-rosa activity. And as we hope ourselves to be judged worthy units of that long line of graduates, so we hope that this, our book, will take its place as a worthy expression of that tradi- tion we know so well. Page Three Hundred and Eighty-seven ■F THE H O W I T Z E IK WILEY DUNCAN GANEY Sales Advertising Manager Dunk was an old standby of our staff, his capacity for work belying bis small stature. His was the one truly businesslike department of the book. Ganey could write out a schedule and forget his work for a week, except for the signing of a stack of letters every night. And — Iiighest praise of all — his was one of the few parts of the work that were done — well — without delay. CHARLES KELLER, JR. Art and Photography Chuck has had a difficult position. He was our art editor — but he admittedly has a layman ' s knowledge of art. He was also photography editor, which really means liaison officer with White ' s Studio and the more ambitious of A-book owners. His last job was a source of military information in his status as the only Army child on the Executive Board. All in all, he handled the miscellany very well. CSUU IJM )k DOUGLAS M. KILPATRICK Associate Editor Doug was one of the original workers on the book, back in those naive days when we started out to set the pidjlishing world on fire. He was especially active in our conferences on the Christmas cards. Wo will never forget how even this most conservative man in our class sometimes almost went radical in the face of some of the problems we had. It was a touching tribute to the troubles we contended against. .«£is-4i « A- ' ya . ' I Vage Three Hundred and Eighty-eight THE HOWITZER MILAN A. G. WEBER Biography Editor Maggie was the joint possessor of the toughest department of the book — bar none. The average biography is asked for ten times, written twice, typewritten at least once, censored twice, and checked and rechecked about fifteen times before it will finally rest peacefully in the book. The photographs, names, and activities tie up matters still further. It ' s a good tiling Maggie is not addicted to tearing his hair; he would he lonii-bald. RALPH COOPER BARROW Bi(k;r imiv Editor Red is the other caretaker iif the biography section. He had to coax and aj de biographies out of all tlic flanker companies, which is a difficult task: for. while the runt is always willing to write about his room mate, tlie average flanker would unudi prefer to seek oblivion with a red com- forter. I.iu-kily Red and Maggie Weber had the assistance of nearly all the rest of the staff, else we would still be reading proof. (RcJja C (B ARTHUR LEONARD FILLER. JR. Sports Editor Art Fuller ' s Athletic Section belongs to him and his assistants alone. Most sections of the book are planned in a vague way by several members of the staff: most of our work has been done by consensus of opinion. Fuller, however, concentrated his efforts on one section and brought it forth full-fledged. He has done a fine job of a hard and very important section; and he is a man who has nuich else to do.

JUM ROBERT JEFFERSON WOOD Class Historian We never expected to count Bob Wood as a mend)er of our stall, but it seemed that so accomj)lished a literarv man could not stav out. As editor of the Pointer he wrote one section, as class historian he did another, and he even found himself caring for the Dialectic Society. Hence, although he was not forniallv made a member of the staff imtil the end of the year, we are glad to claim Bob as one of the founders of our book.

Given under the supervision of our versatile " aj ' xv) song-and-dance man, Jo-Jo Carrithers, the show was an unqualified success. The femnies were as mus- cular and as basso profundo as ever, the light comedy The Minstrel Chorus was even lighter than usual, and the music sent everyone away humming — this last being the surest sign we know of a show that has " clicked. " Happily, the story had nothing whatsoever to do with West Point — for which we were duly thankful. It concerned itself with a young man, Jimmie by name, who had to produce a show within a hundred davs in order to win the hand of a blonde vision of delight, Connie Granville. Such was the task set by the girl ' s father ( None other than our old friend Aubrey K. Dodson ) as the price for his daughter. ith this excuse, Jimmie starts to produce a revue. He is soon in financial straits — in fact the rising of the first curtain discloses him in a decided blue funk, both becavise of the lack of money and because of the quarrel he has just had with the heroine, Connie. But there are blue skies (Yes, Sir! I, and with the help of his friend, Jack Barr, he borrows from a young man about town, Ethelbert Montmorency. BUT — to get the money, he must give the lead in his show to his backer ' s flame of the hour, Melba. Well, this is decided, and the i I! Page Three Hundred and Ninety-six work on the show is renewed. Tragedy stalks without, however. It is not long before p]thelbert snaps out of it and de- cides he has bought wildcat oil stock or its equivalent. Jimmie and his revue once more face the financial rocks. Connie hears of it and arrives to back the show with some money of her own, but ,1 ininiie is not to know of it, for. according to her own declara- tion, she hates ' " the brute. " Just about this time, Melba. tlie leading lady, who has sonie- lu)w kept her job, pulls a dis- appearing act. Again it is Con- nie who helps, now with an offer to take Melba ' s part. So the show goes on, as all shows nuist, and is a real hit from the rise of the curtain. Even now, all is not yet well, for creditors make their appearance and tiirealeii to close the show for debt. The final stroke of good fortune, in the form of an inheritatu-e for Jimmie — a cool live million — comes just in time, and so — the clinch — and curtain. So much for a men " skeleton of the show. The plot, pvr sr. of a Iliindrcdtli Night show was never its strong point. Rather is it that indefinable something which residts from knowing some of the actors, or helping with part of the show, or maybe just a ( " ecling that " there are only one hundred days, " which makes it a thing with a charm all its own. Naturally, any mere plot is incidi ' iital. The 19.30 show, however, evidenced the work of a skilled casting director. Never were fenimes more allur- ing or the low comedy relief lower. Then there was Hockeid)erry, who played the male lead. He is no new- comer to the tlicater-going public of usmay. Few can forget his stellar perfornuuices in the May Day Frolics of ' 27 — to say nothing of his boop-boop-a-doop pit ' ccs dc rrsistanrv with the Second Class orchestra. Carrithers contented himself with a rather minor part in the show, in his own modest way, but we realized from the start who was the man behind the u bole performance. As president of the Dialectic Society, the TniEDt A r) Dickson Taber ANn Decker Page Three Hundred and Ninety-seven B ' L . .J MH ■■k •k f W A H 1 DiDDLEBOr.K AND ToWNES iiiiiiiitahle Jo-Jo witli the help of his untirini; colleagues, sjjared no eflort or expense in putting on the lavish entertainment. Give the little hov a hig hanfl, folks. And that breezy individual, that epitome of nonchalance, who is he? None other than Don Webber, who, although without the record of some of his brother actors, performed creditably in this show, to insure himself a role in future r enditions of that all- star classic, Six-Company P-radr. Madison took the female lead, and played it with all the sweet femininity that a baritone voice and an enlarged bicep TOWNES, DiDDLEBOCK AND DiCKSON would permit. Those who " are in the know " predict a brilliant future for this individual in the May Day Frolics of 1930. He who copped the spotlight, however, was none other than the famed Bill Diddlebock, that niainstav of the shows of the past. Bill is dear to the hearts of his public, having repeatedly played to a full stoop on the 18th Div. Who can forget the way he played " the conductor " to Dud Miller ' s " the passenger " in the " C " Co. Scandals of ' 28? And yet again, he is remembered for his performance behind the push-broom, in Toodle-oo, the 1929 show. Eben fugaccs! The Corps noted with delight the return of Herbert to the speaking stage, after an extended absence. The gymnasium fairly echoed whenever he trod the boards. He will be remembered for his part of the Queen in Not One Cannon Ball, in Plebe year. Few there are who can forget that notable rendition. And what would the show be without some of Wally Thiede ' s hoofing? In The Partial Rcvik ' Wally appeared as a quadruple- threat man — dance, speak, sing, aiirl play (the banjo). In his farewell appearance he was well- supj orted by Motherwell and Dickson, two Second Classmen who will be heard from when the company takes the road next year. To those behind the show, (if course, great credit is due. How many realize the part Page Three Hundred and Ninety-eight t Lieutenant Egner plays to make each Huntlredth Xight a success? Every year, he is on hand with a plenitude of musical numbers that are catchv and original. " Darling " and " I ' m Partial to Partial Re- vues ' ' are testimony enough to what he did for the show. Mrs. alter A. Dumas had that thankless job of making a few hairy-legged Kaydets look like the sweet young things who bring down the house every year. We can conceive of nothing quite so difficult as making an ' " M " Co. roughneck look demure and lissom, but such was Mrs. Dumas ' s task, and she carried it through, if the audience is to be believed, with the utmost success. To Lieutenant Mason Wright and Captain Dumas credit should be given for almost constant suggestions and assistance in the numberless little details that need attention in a show like tliis. Their inifailing interest did much to make the show what it was. And so, mesdames and messieurs, let us close ihe book on Tlii ' Partial Rciur, and on Hmidredth Night — that most ecstatically joyful gesture of a Cadet career. Now, as this appears in print, the long counted hundred days are over, and June is here in all its glory. May there be many more shows and many more as successful Hundredth Nights as that of 1930, but, with all due respect, " not for me, sir! " l)inii[.tBO( K.

Rifling begins during Yearling year. Until the end of Second Class year all riding is plain instruc- tion in the fundamentals of good riding, enlivened by a little jumping. In First Class Sununer Camp comes the glorious Cavalry Hike. During September and October the First Classmen ride outdoors. In November they return to the riding hall and are divided into sections according to their ability. They do not ride in January and February, but spend two hours at it every other day from then until June. Most of this period is spent in preparing for the First Class Ride in June Week.

The truth is that the Militarv Aeademv is not a relic of the j ast, hut a school of principles that never change.

It is evident that the system reproduces itself. For three years at least former ties, outside connections, and outbreaks of independence are repressed in the interest of direction of energy; and then the new unit itself begins to exercise the command to some slight degree. It is most interesting to note in the library the portrait of a Cadet of the Class of 1820 in a full dress coat exactly like that of 1930 except for a more complete display of white collar. And the complaints voiced in a very interesting paper of more than a century vintage are strikingly similar to the gripings of almost any of our contemporaneous First Class bucks when in a mellow mood. Their prehistoric objection to signing for money they never received is the direct ancestor of our little dirtre: X w W jnim ' ' Page Four Hundred and Four " All we do ii sif;M tlie payroll.

" Unrhan ;inf: thoufrh the Aoademy is in principle, there are many changes in the form of things that are of great interest to one who lias ahsorhed the tradition of today. It was around 1816, for example, when the Superintendent put out the niemorahle order that rum woidd no longer be served in the ( ' adet Mess on holidays. The ( " onnnandant, it seems, was a man of great geniality and spirit: for upon the next lioliday he invited the ( " orps of Cadets, at that time quite a small body, to partake of his hospitality on the lawn in front of his house. Quite a grand meal was then served, with the a|)i ropriate li(piid refreshments, and the Cadets did partake thereof with much gusto. The (]onnnandaiit was shortly thereafter relieved of his duties as such, and Prohibition went into effect pcrinaiiciitly. a century before the Kigbteentb Amendment saw the ligiit. Sucii, to some extent, is our background. The pictures of this section may mean little to the uninitiated, but they are quite a contrast to the Post as it is today. Expansion has inevi- tably forced changes. Progress has won a place, as it always will in an up-to-date Army, the while fads have passed us by. The Corps as such endures, we hope, forever.

I am certainly glad to hear that you have been busy baking a cake for me — that was why you were busy, wasn ' t it? It ' s certainly fine of you. My roommate will probably fall in love with ou — he ' s funnv that wav. Who knows? Jo. Letters are apt to come from all ovf instance — th. lobe London, England, Sunday. Dear Jo: I know a girl who went to school with a boy who had a ' ipusin, well, anyway, somebody or other knows a friend of ours named Matilda. So, after all, this i« a small world, and now we are friends, aren ' t we? (Are we?) Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea for me to come up to West Point, as I have never seen West Point and all my life I have wanted to see West Point. I know I will like West Point and besides I will let you drag me, for, after all, aren ' t we really old friends? Ha! Ha! I know that you think I am silly, but I want to come up anil see West Point and you on my re- turii from Europe. Do you know I have learned to do the Highlanil Fling! Write to address on back of envelope. Hopefully yours, Mary. (Continued on page 44(1 and then to page 442) " Ever hear of the midshipman who was off on a cruise — ?

Their mothers think thev are voimg knights of the Holy Grail, they have been referred to in Congress as wasp-waisted vampires, the Comman- dant of Cadets calls them gentlemen cadets, while the old slang term used to be " pampered pets of the nation. " However, West Point is known from within as Hell on the Hudson; the cadets themselves pride themselves on seeming indif- ference and physical strength, consistently apply the Theorem of Least Work, and designate con- temptuously all perfume, powder, and shaving lotion as " flunkybutt " : and a perusal of the rea- sons for award of special punislnnent indicates a most manly aptitude in the theory and prac- tice of applied deviltry. The femmes, those fleet- ing, fragile, fairest females, are also a very in- formed but somewhat reticent source of informa- tion. Two young ladies when interviewed smiled demurely; one said those buttons were awfully hard, and the other proclaimed that she ' d just like to pull that Tac ' s hair. But I, the Howitzer Owl, with the coudtined experience of a Tac, a Pop Swart woo l. a janitor, a boodler, and fifty generations of ul)i(juitous, iniquitous Kaydets, am I not the final and au- tlioritative source of information? I am, but 1 am a wise and silent bird who speaks but in anec- dotes and fables. Remendjcr first that Poe and Whistler did not survive West Point. Geniuses seldom are the best soldiers. Justice is simple. A man cracks a " stinko " pun, he is sat upon, shoved under the table, or stripped and doused. Another says, " Question, Sir! " too many times in the wrong places; he is shumied. A man ' s a man without regard to birth or wealth or chevrons. Every man works or takes the downhill road. A hundred leave every Christinas. Activity is forced for everyone, and more is voluntarv for those who prize the regard of their classmates. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. As a reaction to the formality and rigidity of enforced discipline, friendship varies from informal to playful, rooms when not in- spected are never straightened, and First class- men play leap frog in the Area on winter Sunday afternoons. And lastly they have the greatest esprit de corps in the world. They back a losing football team to the last whistle and the return from the last game. They fight among themselves as to class or company supremacy, and have a natural and healthy hatn-d for the Tactical Department, but they back the Corps of Cadets against any- thing of its size, anything, anywhere.

This cow and bull were very close friends. One day Si purchased a very small cat. While getting itself acquainted with its new surroundings, the cat inadvertently stopped to rest in a pile of hay and fell asleep. When mealtime came around, the bull, commencing its repast, accidentally swallowed the cat along with a large mouthful of hay and became very sick. Si put the sick bull in a separate stall while he sent for a bull doctor. The cow became very lonely, missing the bull ' s company, and began a most mournful mooing for its absent companion. When the bull doctor came. Si consulted him. ' " Doctor, dew what yew can lew get thet thar cat out of ihel bull. Bossy ' s bin niooin " her blamed head off fer him. " The doctor worked and worked. He couldn ' t see down the hull ' s throat and so had to use all sorts of persuasive methods to induce the cat to come up out of the bull ' s innards so that the hull wouldn ' t be sick. But all to no avail. Meanwhile the cow mooed ceaselessly. " Si, " confessed the doctor at last, " (here ' s only one conclu- sion left. I ' ve tried and tried to get that cat to come on out of the hull, and I ' ve decided he simply isn ' t in the mooed.

Today, 17 tubes out of every 20 manufac- tured in the United States are equipped at the factory with Schrader Valve Assemblies. Why? Because countless tests, over many years, have proved that Schrader Valves in- flate faster, hold air better and last longer than any other valve. Tire makers know these facts. And the buy- ing public looks for the name Schrader on original equipment as well as on replacement valve parts. Schrader Products Give Satisfaction Because of their high reputation, Schrader Valves and Valve Parts find a ready acceptance with both public and trade. Motorists every- where have utmost assurance that Schrader Valves will hold air in the tires they ride on. Also, the trade finds that Schrader Products mean more satisfaction and fewer tire com- plaints. A. Schrader ' s Son, Inc., Brooklyn . . . Chicago . . . Toronto . . . London. f I J ) Fw.

Dear M.4ry: Who would ever have thoujidit thai you were coming up to West Point to see me? Certainly I wouldn ' t. However, if you will send me two pictures of yourself, one in a bathing suit and the other in an evening gown, I will write and tell you if I can gel out of being permanent room orderly. As for the Highland Fling, Pm afraid your talents must remain sub- merged until paragraph 6.09, Blue Book, stating that Cadets will not perform the Highland Fling or any other fling, is revoked. Send ])iclurcs to Jo. West Point, New York, Thursday. Dkak M hv: I have received the pictures, and would you believe it, I have just found out that I won ' t even be able to see you, be- cause, as I have said before, I am permanent room orderly. The lesson in Chemistry is to top of page 110 of Tillman ' s Chemistry. Imagine that. Jo. Dear Jo : Siwash College, Sunday. I am wondering if you would mind if I brought my room- mate up to West Point with me, which leads to the subject of my coming up. Do you know you haven ' t really asked me up at all, but it ' s all right, for, after all, really I hate con- vention.s, don ' t you? She is truly a marvelous girl (which starts the sales talk I, about five feet two (height or circum- ference?). I know any Cadet would be crazy to drag her. (Crazy is the word. I She is an exceptionally good talker, and has a lovely personality (lovely personality: 1. p. I. Now won ' t you write and tell me that it ' s all right for me to bring Esmeralda, because we are coming together anyway. Affectionately, Helen. West Point, N. Y., May 14, 1930. Dear Helen: Your letter of Sunda optimo received, redrawing of straws among the Yearlings to get a victim for Esmeralda. Of course, she may be terribly cute as you say she is, but listen, friend, after that last max you brought up here, I have been on the lookout for fat, frappy-eyed blind drags ever since. Y ' ou know my standards. If you think this one can go pro, O. K., but otherwise I ' m afraid I ' ll have to say " Sorr . " Wearily, Jo.

Dear Jo: How can I ever repay you for being so lovely as to drag Esmeralda and me. (How? What about that $5.00 boodle book I gave to the sap who got stung with Esmeralda?) I wish week-ends like that would last forever. I know of noth- ing I would rather do than take walks and do all the things you Cadets devise which are so quaint. There were still loads of things I couldn ' t understand (ca va sans dire). I think a red sash looks much cuter than those plain white bells. Why don ' t you wear one? (Now that ' s a damfool question.) Ever, Helen. West Point, N. Y. Di: K Helen: 1 certainly appreciate your offer to pay me for services rendered in getting your ponderous friend around. You know, I thought at first you had brought a baby elephant until I saw she was too big for that. However, out of sym- pathy for the man who dragged Esmeralda, I gave him my boodle book my all for his all: 16 rounds with Esmeralda, the heftiest woman in thirteen counties. Now what shall I eat on Sunday night but fish and oyster sandwiches? Being what I am where I am, I can ' t accept money from you, so please try and get that boodle here before those Sunday-night oyster sandwiches. Yours, Jo.

His costume suggests a revival of the fad for peg-top trousers. He is wearing socks in a cute black to match his mood, and bedroom slippers by Sears and Roebuck. The gray gymnasium trousers, though not considered de rigueur in higher circles, are nevertheless greatly favored by the younger set. His shirt is not really a shirt at all, but pajamas by the Cadet Store. Note that he wears a cap in preference to a high hat, and that in the careless English manner, his coat remains unbuttoned. However, the open collar is decidedly les nerls. PIPE DREAMS O Pipe!

Y. Another picture showing the more formal side of student life. This popular student at Yousniay College is going to an officers ' meeting where he is scheduled to speak on " The difficulty of keeping one ' s arm from about a young lady ' s waist. " The pressed coat and trousers, shin- ing face, and highly polished shoes show the beneficial effects of compulsory military training. The apparent nervousness, shown by his trembling, is because of the fact that this is his second meeting in the past week and he is afraid the members might get fed up on what he has to say. Although he has already prepared a paper he fears the flood of destructive criticism which it and the talk are sure to loose. It has been said that for the number of men, the Corps of Cadets sends more to sick call than any other body of soldiers, yet it has fewer cases of serious sickness. To clarify to the uninitiated, it must be added that a few days of deadbeat in a quiet ward are a great relief from the worry and hurry of a strenuous existence. This practice was much more prevalent in the nol-so- distant past when a Yearling, harried by writs and demerits, learned the symptoms of appendicitis from a convalescent First Classman. Hurrying down to the hospital, he poured bis tale of woe into the sympathetic ear of the medico, ex- pecting a week under observation. Within two hours his appendix was reposing peacefully in a bath of alcohol, or whatever appendices are put into, and our Yearling was cogitating fiercely on the unalloyed joys of walking the area and boning descript.

Page Four Hundred and Sixty-tuo STEEL--- the Foundation of Modern Industry VVmi.K many different materials are necessary to modern in- dustry, none of them possesses the basic importance of steel. Industry today is turning to the steel-maker with new and more exacting requirements. Bethlehem has anticipated the more rigid steel require- ments that are the natural outgrowth of this condition, and is splendidly equipped to meet them. Stronger steels have been developed in Bethlehem Lab- oratories. A higher degree of uniformity, both in chemical analysis and in working quality of steel, has been attained to meet the requirements of large-volume manufacturing. Pro- duction schedules are more flexible and larger stocks are maintained, enabling Bethlehem to respond promptly to the heavy demands that occur when small inventories and hand- to-mouth buying are the rule. To the user of steel Bethlehem offers the facilities of large plants, equipped along the most modern lines and producing steel in the grades and quantities that he requires.

" There is nothing beyond the post, no village, no shops, no bad company.

In times gone by insurance companies considered Army Officers poor risks and either refused to insure them or charged them extra premiums. American Army Officers, seeing the need of immediate help for their famihes in emergency, in- stituted this Hfe insurance concern in 1879. Among its charter members were Generals Phihp H. Sheridan. R. C. Drum. G. W. Davis. Arthur Mc. rthur, W. R. Shaffer, S. B. M. Young, and Emory Upton. At first a term insurance plan was used but in 1897 the Association, having proved its worth, was reorganized as an ordinary life institution and there has recently been adopted a plan for paid-up insurance with cessation of premiums which should prove a beneficial privilege to those who leave the Army or retire. The surplus in the regular Reserve is credited to individual accounts and helps to give fully paid-up insurance in old age. FOR OVER A HALF CENTURY, this organization, const ilu led and directed by its rmy-()fficer membership, has provided Army Officers with life insurance at rates averaging lower than those of reputable com- mercial companies, has consistently made immediate payments of benefits and never defaulted upon a payment nor been sued. There has never been serious criticism of the management of the institution, its accounts or investments, and its strongest advocates are its members and the widows it has helped. It has never been in financial difficulty in spite of money panics. ef)i(jeniics, and wars. Those insured are select risks of varied age. rank and duty in the Army and the Association ' s mortality rate has averaged con- siderably below actuarial expectations. INVESTMENTS have been made in conservative and safe securities so that the Reserve has had a gradual and steady growth. Securities are purchased only upon the advice of professional invest- ment counsel. The Kxperience Table shows the growth of membership to have been gradual, consistent, and healthy and to have conformed closely to the increase in the Army since the inception of the institution. The age of its members has held compara- tively young and its Reserve has always been more than sufficient to meet instantly all benefits due. INSURANCE BENEFITS are paid instantly when a member dies, one-half being transmitted by wire and one-half by mail. An outstanding feature of the Association ' s work is its help in preparing the pension and other claims for the bereaved parents, widows and families of its members. This service, built up through years of experience, assures the relatives of members that their rights as to Government allowances will be prot ected. The importance of this service may be appreciated by the fact that families of officers who were not members of the Association are known to have lost thousands of dollars because they failed to file timely claims and proper supporting evidence for pensions and other Government allowances. OFFICERS AND CADETS are eligible for membership. Eivery First Classman should become a member and support the work of this Association, not only as a matter of good business but as a matter of esprit de corps as well.

With not a worry, not a care. Two youthful hearts that beat as one: And you, more dazzling than the sun. I knew not why I took a pen And slowly sketched your likeness, then. Perhaps a premonition, gray. Foretold the sorrow felt today. For no one chose to prophesy That soon would come the day that I Would wake to find the dragon, death. Had stilled your heart with icy lireath. That drawing, dear, alone remains Of you to me. My heart, in chains Of heavy sorrow weighted down. Is King of grief, without a crown. I sit alone, yet not alone. For you, as queen, upon your throne. Direct my thoughts, inspire my life, Maintain my courage in the strife. I give due thanks to gods of men That, knowing not, I sketrjied you tiieii. ■ — llarrad. Patterson Schenectady Potter, M. M New York RichariKson, W. H New York Rolhwell, F. G New York Ryan, W.

H. Frothingham de Frothingham became very excited and made a long and heated speech on the over-emphasis of athletics. He pounded the table so vigorouslv that an inkwell moved and the noise could be heard for twenty feet or more. He would not sit down until his wrist had been slapped, when he collapsed sobbing bitterly. This touched the other members greatly, and when it developed that these players used extra large chess men requiring such effort to move them that a physical exam was necessitated before the players could compete in matches, the tide turned.

Wright ' s part in record-breaking 1929 is significant. Here are a few achievements which bear this out and which will set Wright ' s pace for the year ahead. ENDURANCE: the " Question Mark, " the " Fort Worth, " the " City of Cleveland, " and the " An- gelino. " DISTANCE— over sea: from America to Spain with Williams and Yancey. DISTANCE — over land: Coast-to-Coast non-stop round trip with Mamer and Walker. ADAPTABILITY: 80% of possible prize money at the Cleveland Air Races. SPEED: 229.8 m.p.h. with Douglas Davis.

The members all chiiined the right to be free, free, free as the bounding .sea, and they felt that any self-expression might force the Watch and Ward to padlock the meeting place under the thirteenth division. A voice from the back row yelled " Hooray ! " at this, but the owner was promptly suffocated with a generous dash of barber shop hair tonic and the meeting proceeded with tlie usual decorum.

A S each new Staff undertakes the planning of a Year Book it is confronted with the same old problems which have perplexed the workers of previous years. And yet, to each new Staff these planning and production problems are all • " new and ordinarily must be solved without the benefit of the experience of those who have solved the same problems in the past. Much of this grief is avoided when the Staff works with The DuBois Press. Out of our wealth of experience in building Year Books we have formulated certain well defined standards of procedure for the guidance of each new Staff. To enjoy the full benefit of our Creative Service we recommend a preliminary conference between the members of the Staff and the Manager of our Year Book Department. This preliminary conference should be arranged at as early a date as possible and does not incur any obligation Our " idea " or planning department has created many outstanding and prize-winning Year Books May we be of service to you ?
