It is a far cry from the present Cadet Restaurant in Grant Hall to the little house by the river where Benny Havens lived, and where he supplied the wants of cadets of long ago. To most of us now Benny Havens ' name only calls to mind a pic- ture that hung in the old Boodler ' s shop down by the Ordnance building, and in a few more years even that will be unknown in the Corps.

(d re) COLOR LINE CADETS have ever been able to make ihe best of bad situations. In days gone by, when guard duty in camp was supposed to have been more rigorous than it is today, cadets were accustomed to gather behind the line where the colors were guarded, there to sing, give imitations, and in general amuse themselves with the limited facilities at hand. These entertainments, which at first were limited to a small group, gradually developed to a traditional activity of Summer Camp life. 31 J : L 1 re) CAMP ILLUMINATION XN order properly to compliment the French gov- ernment for its friendship expressed during the Revolution, General Washington ordered a large celebra- tion in honor of the bir(h of the Dauphin of France. A large colonnade was constructed on the main parade where a grand ball was held by the officers and ladies of the post. The rum ration for the soldiers was doubled; the hills re-echoed as the batteries saluted. The original meaning of the celebration has faded from the memory of man almost as much as the rum ration for soldiers, but the celebration persists as the culmination of the social life of the summer encampment. V OKZ JU-Vli 6) e) i GUARD DUTY eUARD duty for the purpose of protection and security at the Military Academy has long since become completely unnecessary. However, guard duty exists, and will continue to exist for the purpose of in- stilling in the consciousness of the Corps an ideal of discipline and good order. In order to command, an officer must have a standard and it is only by the rigid discipline and practical experience that comes from guard duty as it has been developed at the Academy that a cadet may determine for himself the level of military efficiency to which he intends to hold himself throughout his career. ■A ' l f 1 re) ' J 1 GRUDGE FIGHTS 1 |HENEYER a group of healthy young animals are VAx confined together, disagreements, serious and otherwise, are bound to arise. It is only normal from time to time that cadets should come to blows over matters of momentary importance. Years ago the Corps frowned upon indiscriminate fighting, and it was the custom that the classes or factions involved in the dispute took the matter out of the hands of the disputants and selected representatives to battle for class or group honor. Such affairs are things of the past, for now if two individuals think an argument can be settled by force, the boxing room in the gymnasium affords them the opportunity. (5] re) I AREA BIRDS T-4 ROM the beginning of iime military authority has • -sought after ways of impressing upon delinquents the full horror of their misdemeanors. The approved solution has been found to be physical exhaustion coupled with time to meditate on one ' s offenses. And so we walk. The number of foot-tons of work done by cadets in the past century walking back and forth to expiate both for their sins of omission and commission is far too great to calculate. A graduate who cannot look back in memory on the path he wore in Central Area has missed an integral part of cadet life. p ; -J 1 r i ONE HUNDREDTH NIGHT H FUNDAMENTAL precept in the Corps of CAdett it always to look forward to something. June — the Alpha and Omega of cadet life — is the greatest thing in the year, the goal toward which all classes look. It is natural then that when there are but a hundred days left there is cause for celebration. It all began with speeches and readings in the Messhall to which only the Corps was admitted, later as things grew more elaborate, represen- tations of cadet life were performed for cadets and guests. Now One Hundredth Night offers the oppor- tunity for cadets to exercise their abilities, dramatic, artistic, and musical. It is the one bright spot in the gloom period. ' I , 1 r lii i| GRADUATION PARADE AND RECOGNITION HIS traditional formation is viewed four times as a cadet — each time it is appreciated differently. In a general sense we can say it symbolizes the completion of a step in the military education of a cadet. The steps — the end of a vigorous Plebe year, the last parade be- fore furlough, the last corps formation before the new First Class takes charge and, greatest of all, the gradu- ate ' s last real formation as a cadet. Each Graduation Parade means a new kind of liberty and a new field to conquer. r UHA I : _W¥ (S) re) ll.ll.l EARLY VIEW OF THE PLAIN THE PLAIN has always been very much the same since ' General Washington ' s Army used it as a camp site. The Academy, growing around it, has changed its appearance so gradually that we often Fail to realize that it ever looked other- wise than it does today. Regardless of slight changes in ap- pearance it remains essentially unchanged — the center around which the Academy grows.

We have all been there. Perhaps w€ have missed the beauty, th e ruggedness of this oft ' trod path because of other nterests — that is our loss.. CULLUM HALL THESE straight, majestic ' lines bring many fond memories to the hearts of Cadets, of hops long gone, of the O. A. O., of the strains of Army Blue, and of the drum rudely inter- rupting with the sound of recall. ' k TROPHY POINT ONE of the most beau- tiful views at West Point is the view from Trophy Point. It is one of the places that will never be forgotten by those who have been there. A mute, yet yearning voice seems to speak of wars long gone, of valor and of victory. ill CLOCK TOWER A SOFT sound of chimes ' ' heard only when all is quiet comes to your ear. They seem to whisper " One day more has passed. " CADET CHAPEL I I IGH above all stands a ' ' rugged, massive pile of granite, its interior lined with battletorn flags, rov s of Cadets — chimes. FRENCH MONUMENT A BRONZE figure of vlc- ' tory, a symbol of the close bonds of friendship tying L ' Ecole Polytechnique and West Point. He calls us to join hinn in victory. ADMINISTRATION BUILDING DETURNING from a leave, tired and weary, climb- ing step by step, ever up- wards, towers of granite ever ahead. A deep sigh of relief as we pass the last step and hasten onwards. GRANT HALL THE new Cadet South ' Barracks on the site of the old mess hall. The new home of the Boodlers and the reception hall. A home of luxury and beauty, well deserving the name of " The Hotel. " NORTH BARRACKS IVY covered walls in sum- I mer, cold whistling north- ern winds in winter. A honne for the " Lost Batt " in win- ter, a home for the Old Grads in June. The First Class Club — work — ioyful reunions. i SUPERINTENDENT ' S GARDEN A VIEW seen by few, yet ' ' of surpassing beauty both in winter and sunnmer. The Chapel in the distance and the Symnaslunn nearer at hand bring poignant memories. i FORT PUTNAM IN our land of progress we seldom have the opportunity to cherish a relic of ' the struggle for American Independence. These impressive walls serve to remind us of the hardships and the labors of our ancestors in winning the free- dom of our country and defending it in the early days of its existence. Fort Putnam ' s war-like appearance is gone and in its stead is an air of peace and security — it seems almost a natural part of the mountains. r ■ : ii K,l -A I REVOLUTIONARY BARRACKS DEFORE the end of the Revolution a long white barracks had been constructed for troops just to the east of Trophy Point. When the Academy was founded Cadets were quar- tered there until money was raised for new buildings. This old hall served for more than a decade before it was replaced.

M .1 INTRODUCTION TO " ORGANIZATION lFFICIENCV is the keynote to success in all endeavors, in peace and in war alike. However, efficiency, with its ultimate success, is primarily the result of coordinated organization. The Corps of Cadets is prone to take for granted the organization of the Academy. It is obscured by the relentless, drab routine work which is always confronting the Corps. Yet this organization has produced results which were recog- nized by the late Chief Justice White when he said, " West Point — A school that has produced a man to meet every national emergency that has ever confronted the country.

In early days, when the size of the institution permitted, all cadets were examined orally before this Board of Visitors, but the expansion of the Academy and the increase in the curriculum gradually forced this practice out of existence. West Point has been honored by visits of many distinguished citizens who have given their time and energy to this Board for the benefit of the Mil itary Academy.

MORRISON THE ACADEMIC BOARD lUST as our government was conceived on the principle that all men are created equal, so did the Military Academy have its beginning. Long ago, however, the authorities realized that although all men might begin life on an equal basis with an equal amount of intelligence, no two men would exhibit a like amount of concentration, or exercise their talents to a similar extent. For that reason the Academic Board had its beginning. To the cadet entering West Point a new opportunity is given. He starts with a clean page, what he writes thereon is his ovvn — by that will he be judged. But if he is to be judged, and on a matter that will have effect on him throughout his entire life in the Army, it is necessary that the judges be careful, exact men. Since the beginning, in 1815, of the unique system now in use, at no time has the Academic Board failed that trust which was bestowed upon it. Primarily the Military Academy is an institution for training officers, but to be an officer in the fullest sense of the word a man must also be a teacher, a leader, and a friend to his men. Therefore it is necessary that the graduates of the Military Academy be fully cognizant of, and amply prepared for, these roles and the responsibility which they entail. If they are to be prepared for the duties which they must perform upon graduation, military training is, in reality, secondary to the condition of this mind which will bring it to its highest peak of efficiency. It is in this conditioning that the Academic Board exhibits the judgment and selective ability that have made the name of West Point a standard for perfection. Due to the limited amount of time allowed for academic training, the Academic Board is forced to choose the course of instruction in such a manner that the most good can be done in the least possible time. That the Board has accomplished its purpose can easily be seen if one scans the record of West Point graduates. No more fitting tribute can be paid to the Board than to point to the enviable record compiled by graduates of the Military Academy. Page Fifty-one LT. COL. WILLIAM A. MITCHELL ENGINEERING PEACE is with us. Time, money, men, machines are at hand. Marvels of engineering skill are wrought — The George Washington Bridge over the Hudson River — the Holland Tunnel under it — The Empire State Building — the vast network of excellent roads that bring Maine and Texas, Florida and California so near one another. Such are the things that the young engineer dreams of so fondly. War clouds loom. Our men are in the field. This division must cross over this unbridged river, that division must get through that shell torn road. No time, no machinery, no material. Will our armies fail because they cannot maneuver; their supplies cannot reach them? The engineers arrive at the river a few hours ahead of the fore- most units. A close observer would not find a single " slip-stick " in sight, nor a Carnegie Handbook — no, not even an enunciation pamphlet. Instead, a score or more of pontoons strike the eye. Working feverishly, the men slide them into the water, row them into place, lash them into position, and have the river bridged in time for the column to pass over it uninterrupted. And all this at the single command of " Constrooct-a-breetch. " As for the disintegrated road, it is quickly repaired by the simple expedient of tossing rocks into the holes and leveling off the high places. No engineering niceties here. Such are the tasks that confront the military engineer. Constantly handicapped, he must make continual use of his ingenuity, experience, and engineering knowledge in combating nature and the enemy. The more thorough and the more complete his training, the more suc- cessfully he will accomplish his mission. Lt, LEEHEV, Lt. AKERMAN Lt. SORLEY, Lt. MARSHALL, Lt. DEAN, Lt. BARTH Lt. BAISH, Lt. Col. HALL Asst. Prof., Lt. Col. MITCHELL, Prof., Lt. TANSEV, Lt. HASTINGS Page Fifty-two LAW OPEN YOUR NOTEBOOKS " is the slogan of the Law Depart- ment. And on every other academic day during First Class year we obeyed an d wrote and wrote. When we finished we had the outward and visible sign of our initiation into the mysteries of the Law. The inward sign, although invisible, is greater. Ever since we were old enough to sit on our dad ' s lap and ask him to read us those big bold black headlines of the newspaper, we have been interested in law. Every person is interested because everyone ' s life is in intimate contact with the Law. Despite this well recognized fact an appallingly small number of enlightened citizens know anything about law. hience most of the people go through life, living under the jurisdiction of the Law, and knowing nothing of its intricacies and wonders. We who have had the erudite experience of " opening our note- books ' are by no means lawyers. The Law Department told us that they desired to lift the curtains hiding the mysteries of Constitutional, Criminal, Civil, and Military Law, enough to let us glimpse their mech- anisms. We looked and were astounded. Our curiosity was aroused; our ambition to learn was stimulated; our awe of law was dispersed; our respect for it was augmented. As we have said, we are not lawyers, but we understand basic principles. We have benefited immeasurably. And better yet we enjoyed our course in Law and appreciate the diligent and patient efforts of Colonel hialliday ' s coterie to hammer the rudiments of American justice into our heads. We are glad we opened our note- books. LT. COL. FRANK W. HALLIDAY Professor »a Lt, SHEETS, Lt. SNODGRASS Lt. DUff y, Caot. HANNAV, Li. Col HALLIDAY, Prof. Maj. CAFFEY, Asst. Prof., Lt. COOKSON Page Fifty-three _ LT. COL. HERMAN BEUKEMA Professor ECONOMICS, GOVT AND HISTORY THESE subjects are taught in the opposite order to that given in the departmental title. During the Third Class year an intensive course is given in general histor . This course is planned to combine special- ization and generalization in such a manner that the cadet receives the greatest benefit possible. The West Point methods of instruction are admirably suited to such a course. Small sections ranked according to ability, daily recitations, both oral and v ritten, augmented by fre- quent lectures on the military leaders and their campaigns, give indi- vidual attention to all, while permitting the higher men of the class to take up special and more advanced work. The subject of economics is treated extensively during the First Class year. In time of war the value of this phase of the department ' s work is shown in its true light. The business of War demands, in addition to an uncompromising devotion to duty, an intimate knowl- edge of the ways of commerce and industry. For fighting men de- mand much, of necessity, and only a superb organization can supply their needs. War is a stimulus to nations. This is strikingly evinced by the manner in which the tools of battle are made and transported. Fac- tories are transformed almost overnight into arsenals; ships and miles of railroads are constructed to convey troops and supplies. The officers of the Army who organize and direct the Service of Supply must not fail. A prime requisite for the efficient execution of their vital task is knowledge of the fundamental principles of economics to which they must conform. That knowledge, properly applied, makes possible the miracles that are performed. Lt. FAY, Lt. MEVER Capt. DONALDSON, Lt. NELSON, Lt. McDONALD, Lt. GALLOWAY, Lt. MULVIHILL, Lt. FISKE Opt. RANSOM, Lt.

" Thus ended the " service test " on the latest and most refined equipment for the United States Field Artillery. Similar tests of new materiel for the various branches of our Army are con- tinually being conducted at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds by our Ordnance Department, and it is mainly through their untiring efforts that our armed forces are kept abreast of those forces maintained by the great European powers. No matter to which branch of the service you are eventually assigned you will see the effects of the work done by this department. New bomb sights for the Air Corps to accompany the latest and fastest bombers acquired,- new fire-control apparatus for the anti- aircraft batteries to offset the increased speed and maneuverability obtained by airplanes,- new semi-automatic rifles for the infantry,- new fast moving self-propelled mounts for the guns manned by our Field Artillery; these and many more are among the most important improve- ments in ordnance materiel, made possible by men who work, not for the personal glory they may attain, but that our troops may be better equipped and prepared for action in time of great emergencies. To those of you who have been unable to appreciate the mys- teries of the " ballistic coefficient " and " Poisson ' s ratio " we offer our sympathy. To those others of you who have taken the proper interest in this work, we offer a new and varied field of endeavor. It is with a feeling of deep sorrow that we sever our connections with this course, perhaps for only a few months, perhaps for many years. LT. COL. ALtXANDER G. GILLESPIE Professor Lt. HOLMAN, Lt.

WALLACE DeWIH Professor MILITARY HYGIENE A SHORT course in Military Hygiene is given during the cadet ' s first class year. Its basic purpose is the teaching of the principles and practice of military hygiene in such a manner as to prepare the future officer so to care for his own health and that of his men in garri- son and in the field as to keep the effective strength of his unit as near to the maximum as possible — that is, to conserve ' fighting strength. " This course is made up partly by a series of lectures and partly by a recitation course. Some knowledge of biology, anatomy, physiology, and the Army Medical Service is necessary as a foundation for the course, and, as the average cadet enters the Military Academy without such knowl- edge, these subjects, together with first aid, are covered in the lecture series given by the various officers of the Department. The remainder of the time is devoted to the recitation course in elements of military hygiene and is divided for convenience into three parts. The first part of the recitation course deals with the recruit and his environment, including such details as personal hygiene, foods and their preparation, hygiene of the barracks and camps, of moving troops, and of hot and cold chmates. The second portion is relative to the prevention and control of epidemics and the line officer ' s duties and responsibilities in relation thereto. A thorough knowledge of these elements enables the officer to keep his men in good health and on active duty status both in peace and war. Capt. DeWin, Lt. HALL, Maj. COLLINS, Mai. SMITH, Mai.

" These words, while not used exclusively by the Philosophy Department, are in themselves an apt outline of the scope and purpose of its teachings. The " four problems " symbolize the study of survey- ing, astronomy, mechanics, and aerodynamics,- the " answer all four signifies the thoroughness with which the Department strives to incul- cate a general understanding of these subjects upon the minds of cadets. Officers — especially young officers — dre expected to be able to meet emergencies upon their own initiative. They may excel, sooner or later, in some particular line of work; but in the meantime they may be called upon to turn their hands to almost anything — be it map- ping a war-swept area or supervising the construction of waterworks in a frontier town. Temporary barracks are to be erec ted on the site of a new post — they must be practical, comfortable, and inexpensive. Who will design them? The Army must be sufficient unto itself. Probably no other course at the Military Academy includes such a vast amount of training in the realm of everyday experience as does that in philosophy. It familiarizes the cadet with laws and causes governing the phenomena about him — phenomena which, until now, he has observed but never sought to understand. Then, broadening his mental horizon, it acquaints him with the theory of making and reading maps, with the basic principles of aircraft, and lastly, with the greater worlds beyond his own. The Department thus succeeds in helping cadets to judge soundly, to think freely, and — in general — to make good use of training which, as officers, they v ill find invaluable.

WEIKERT Page Fifty-seven LT. COL. CHAUNCEY L. FENTON Professor CHEMISTRY AND ELECTRICITV A BREAK in an Army ' s line of communication causes great concern in the smooth working machine. The danger must be found and repaired without delay. Vast is the network which connects G. H. Q. with the various units of its far flung battle line; a compli- cated system of telephone, telegraph, and radio. A staff of specialists is constantly at work to maintain, extend, and perfect this important link upon which the success of a great army depends. The field of communications is not the only one in which new sciences play an important part. The present day army of motorized forces, aircraft, and powerful weapons looks to modern science for development. New explosives must be perfected, motor fuels tested, stronger and lighter metal developed. These fields are only a few of the many in which chemistry and electricity extend their influence. We can look into the future and visualize planes flying without pilots, controlled entirely by radio. On account of its many applications to present day warfare, the Army is vitally concerned with the advancement of science. The Department of Chemistry and Electricity has one year in which to train future officers in the fundamentals of two most important subjects. The instruction includes a course in chemistry, a course in electrical engineering, and a course in radio. The duties of these officers may range from peaceful experiments with motor fuels and ignition to the construction of telegraph lines under fire. The ingenuity and resource of the American Army in these fields bear striking testimony to the thoroughness with which this Department does its vi ork. Lt. SERIG, Lt. REIPE, Lt. GILLETTE Lt.

PALMER 1 Page Fifty-eight MODERN LANGUAGES piXEi— Marshal Foch enters. He discusses the situation at the front, gives his orders, and asks. " Y-a-t-il des questions, messieurs? " Imagine the embarrassment of the American commanders if they had been unable to understand him. But being graduates of West Point and having been subjected to the benign influences of the Modern Language department for three years they have no trouble interpreting the order. In peace, as well as in v ar, the soldier meets situations like this. It may not always be on the battlefield that he is called upon to win a victory through his knowledge of what the other person is saying. In the drawing rooms in Washington, or among the natives of the Philippines alike, officers must be able to converse in languages other than English. The most important of these languages are: French, the language of diplomacy; and Spanish, the language of our neighbors. In both of these, the Modern Language Department has given the graduate a firm foundation. The two years study of French grammar and con- versation enables the young military attache or junior staff officer to acquit himself well in the performance of his duties and social obliga- tions. The Castilian Spanish taught at West Point is easily adapted to the dialects of the Cubans as well as to those of the Filipinos. Good-will missions to our neighbors or command in the Philippine Scouts is equally well executed with this knowledge. The Modern Language Department helps us to fulfil the maxim, " To be educated, know the other man ' s language. " LT. COL. WILLIAM E. MORRISON ProFcssor M BEBOUSSIN Capt. FOX Lt. PIERCE, Lt.

ALEXANDER Professor DRAWING THE perspiring gunner pushed his shako back a little farther on his head, and squinted grimly along the barrel of his piece until it was alined on the white crossbelts of the approaching infantry. On the other hand, the colonel of the approaching infantry waved his sabre heroically, and directed the maneuvers of his regiment across a battle- field, no larger than a parade ground, by the power of his lungs and the strength of his vocal cords. Both of these men could see the field of battle. During this era, a map for use in battle was a useless imple- ment. Maps were ponderous things — veritable works of art — made by conscientious subalterns of the Pioneers for Generals to show to the War Office. Such matters, of course, concerned the average officer not at all. He was a soldier, and not an artist. All this was long ago. Today, in War or Peace, the young officer may be called upon to perform anything in the line of drawing from preparing plans for a hatrack to translating the curious lines and shadows of an airplane photograph into such terms as fortifications and hidden guns. Thus it is that Drawing, although perhaps not the most important, is one of the most practical courses that a cadet is exposed to. Its application is found in every line of modern military endeavor. From the rough sketching of the infantry, through the precise mapwork of the Artillery, to the delicate and complicated drawings of the Ord- nance, an acquaintance with the fundamentals of Drawing is both useful and necessary to the general and specialized education of an officer.

PESEK Pd3Z Sixty MATHEMATICS THE Department of Mathematics is faced with the most difficult of all the tasks allotted the various departments of the Military Academy — that of inculcating the ability of thinking as individuals into the minds of men habitually accustomed to accepting the opinions and theories of others as their guiding principles. As a means to this end, the new cadet is introduce d to a rigorous two year course in which he covers all phases of advanced mathematics. Throughout the entire course the cadet is entirely dependent on himself for the solution of problems, explanations of theories, and understanding of the basic principles of mathematics. In the classroom the instructor ' s function is to ascertain the cadet ' s knowledge of the subject; not to impart to him that knowledge. The personal factor does not exist at West Point: on his own merits a cadet either succeeds or is rejected as unfit. The results are worthy of the methods used. The cadet who sur- vives is fitted with the mental qualities necessary to the officer — the leader of men. In both war and peace the lives of his men and the successful accomplishment of his mission depend upon his decisions. A rapid and thorough analysis of all aspects of the situation; the ability to think clearly and logically under stress, combining speed and precision in his work; and the unhesitant ableness to apply needful care without unwarranted deliberation are the requisites for the leader in any field of life. Through them the officer is enabled to report Objective reached " in missions upon which the advance of an army or the safety of the nation depends. LT COL HARRIS JONES L . rjICHOLAS, Lt.

WHEAT Professor ENGLISH y LL the clever suavity of speech characterizing the diplomat; all the ' conciseness associated with the man of action,- the ability to ex- press an opinion on any subject in language that makes it interesting, are considered by many as the natural birthright of the Army officer. Whether this is true or not rests with him, his conscience, and the Department of English. The duties of the Department in this case are multifarious and varied. The object of the two-year course is threefold; to stimulate in the cadets a desire to read and appreciate the best in literature, to teach them to write correctly, and to teach them to talk effectively. The endeavor is not to satisfy but to stimulate. Every effort is made to encourage the cadet to read extensively, to think clearly, and to evaluate properly the material which he has read. Mastery of the principles taught during the two years should accomplish these results. Effectiveness is the keynote of the course. The Army has a horror of beating around the bush " that is greater than its love for " red tape. Every statement, order, or report must be effective, concise, and to the point. Then the Department must impart a background of world history and a thorough knowledge of, and interest in, current events. To this background is added a " working " vocabulary, to give strength in writing, and varied gleanings from the fields of higher literature to add polish. Finally, its objective is so to equip the cadet that it may never be necessary for him to make the statement, Unaccustomed as 1 am to public speaking " .... i Ll. FARRELL, L[. BILLO, Lt. MOORE, Lt.

BRANHAM Page Sixty-two PHYSICS THE requirements of modern warfare demand that the commander of any body of troops be more than a drill-master, e must be some- thing of a practical engineer as well. No matter vhat branch of service his work embraces he must of necessity know something of practical mechanics. The modern weapons of war drz machines, and to use them skillfully the military leader must know them thoroughly. But to know them means to know their basic principles. So it is essential that the military man should know the laws of Physics which have established the principles on which the operation of the weapons and instruments of war are based. The young subaltern entering the Infantry is bound to be con- fronted with problems of transportation of supplies and men. It is important that he know how to place a maximum load in the minimum space, that he move and take care of his auxiliary weapons and ordi- nary kit. To the artilleryman and ordnance officer the problems of trajectory, impact, weight, and movement are of vital importance. The engineer, more than any other, must deal with the laws of stress, couples, and kindred types. It is upon his shoulders that rest the tasks of building and maintaining the arteries of traffic, the bridges and the defenses around which armed forces operate. To teach cadets the more simple and practical laws which govern these vital problems is the purpose of the Department of Physics. Once grounded in these fundamentals they are prepared to put their knowledge to actual use in the field. llllllli CAPT. GERALD A. COUNTS Acting Professor Lt. SAMOUCE, Ll. SHUMATE Lt. STEVENS, Ll.

The first problem was solved by the fact that there was no place for Cadets to go, the second was solved by placing a gate and a guard a short distance south of where the hospital now stands. Times have changed; the Academy has expanded; cows are no longer anxious to come onto the reservation — even at the end of furlough. 1 Page Sixty-four 1 ' i Jtactical departments m THE OLD MESS HALL IN 1850 Grant Hall was viewed as a dining hall beyond compare. One that would always be ample for the Corps. As time went on it was doubled in size by adding to the back, but even then the Corps outgrew it. By the time it was superseded by Washington all it was so over- crowded that there seemed practically no room for food. A good many customs and traditions grew up about the old building which are no longer remembered. In another year there will be no cadets who can remember as plebes cautiously looking at Foundation Eagle over the door. In fact the only reason any one can give after this year for re- membering it is that he gazed too long upon it. 1 Page Sixty-six Cdpi. MACON, Lt. CRIST, Lt. ENNIS Capi. BARBER, Lt.

BRUNER OFFICERS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF TACTICS THE TACTICAL OFFICERS " THE Twelve Disciples sit smilinsly assembled at their desks in the Guard hHouse. They seem happy ' this Monday morning, for Saturday Inspection is over and they had conducted a Four [A.M. inspec- tion the night before as they returned from their revelries. The cause of their good humor is obvious, for the over-laden desks of the Tactical Officers creak under the burden of the plenteous quill garnered at these two inspections. And their victories are unending, for this is Monday morning. Their apostolic faces glow with diabolic pleasure as they sally forth to conduct their respective A. M. I. s. For one hundred and twenty-nine years this Tactical Department has been developed until they have evolved an invincible combination in the great battle of Tac versus Cadet. Their purpose is mani- fold; their methods are irreproachable. Designed to develop fighting officers, they do so by presenting impregnable defenses to the wiles of wayward cadets. Instinctively they find delinquencies where they themselves committed them in the past; they follow the advantages of their experience relentlessly in designing the character they desire for the Service; these prospective generals thwart the generals in embryo " at every turn to insure the evolution of keener Tactical senses with every class.| They con- duct a school as hard as theirs — where compensation for expected virtue is nil but retribution for offense is hard and sure. They provide repeated Waterloos for their proteges only that these proteges may rise to greater heights of generalship after each encounter. 1 m M Page Sixty-seven Opt MACON Mdj. HARMON Capt. BARBER THE BATTALION BOARD A :30 STRIKES — the zero hour — for that is when they are scheduled to convene, this Batt Board. About ' 4:45 they walk jocularly into their chamber. For a few minutes they sit and chat pleasantly, oblivious to the mental consternation and physical discomfort their delay is causing the misunderstood but delinquent cadets awaiting their pleasure without. Then the Triumvirate sits. They arrange the unread explanations before them, wilfully they stifle their senses of humor, they set their faces to a grim, stony, critical stare as the first victim is called into their chamber of justice, h e stands rigidly before this formidable trio, trembling a little in anticipation of their sharp reprimands and startling queries. His sharp " Yessirs " and " Nosirs " are interspaced with sharp questions and terse comments by his interlocutors. - e makes no plea — the facts are made clear and he is dismissed to summon his unfortunate successor, and return home to await the awful justice of the Triumvirate. The next enters and stands before them rigidly — outwardly calm and immaculate, inwardly suffering qualms of fear and conscience for his offense, hlis offense may be ludicrous but the humor is wasted on his audience,- his plea for clemency is dashed to pieces by this stony trio he faces. The last man is summoned and he, too, passes from the chamber of retribution a sadder but wiser man. At last they sit informally, casually,- they discuss their awards,- nonchalantly they mete out justice and administer unwieldy punishments — not blindly but with cognizance of their poy ers and duties to their Alma Mater. Finally they are through. Jokingly, they begin to disband,- they remark on Cadet Ducrot ' s discom- fiture,- they recall their own misfortunes as cadets. As they depart you imagine them perfectly normal, compassionate men — you wonder. Page Sixty-eight GEORGE R. GRUNERT Regimental Sergeant-Major CHARLES R. MURRAY Regimental Supply Sergeant GEORGE R. MATHER Regimental Adjutant ROGER B. DERBY Regimental Supply Offic JOHN P. McCONNELL Regimental Commander THE REGIMENTAL STAFF IN time of war communications must come through if the mission at hand is to be accomphshed. If the ' line of communications is cut, the objective may easily be lost and all efforts come to naught. So it is at West Point if orders are not promptly and correctly relayed from the authorities to the cadets. It is the duty of the regimental staff to serve as the connecting link betv een officers and cadets. In addition to transmitting all communications, the staff is also responsible that all such commands are obeyed. To the casual observer it might seem that the staff ' s only duty is to appear in spotless full dress at all ceremonies, but, in reality, that is the least of the duties assigned to the members. There are pay rolls to be signed, guard rosters to be posted, seating assignments to be made, and a thousand and one other similar obligations which are part of the day ' s work. If something should slip in the routine, it is the staff which must find and remedy the defect. Work, always work, and very little play is the lot of any cadet who is chosen for that select group. With all the obligation and toil which are part of it, however, the cadet who has served in such a capacity has gained much that will help him later on in his army life. The executive experience and the ability to meet any emergency calmly v ' ill stand him in good stead. krai Pdse Sixty-nine VAN WAV SIMENSON, E. G.

We lay no claim to perfection mind you, but we do believe one would go a long way before finding a group more susceptible to fraternization; and after all good- fellowship leads to happiness, and happiness is perfection. We have our merited complements of all things available to the Corps,- star men, athletes, goats and activity men, and one thing we are positively proud to lack is the insidious genus file boner. Must we mention that we have no little men among us? Surely you know that A Company has long been the refuge and mater of those stalwart individuals known as f-lankers. West Point is famous for its big men who have refuted the argument prevalent since the era of the " Little Corpor al " that to be a great general one had to be a runt. The flankers will show the way to light and truth. We, in our modest and unassuming quarters, have seen the coming of the Grant Hotel, but we do not scoff,- we pity, as did our forbears when North Barracks came into being. Live on in lavish decadence and luxury,- we much prefer to walk the sterner path where age old tradition mars the walls and brass plates of past heroes stir our hearts to polish and to imitate. m Pdse Seventy-two FIRST CLASS CAIRNS, B.

A goodly portion of athletes, snakes, and turnouts enliven and diversify the ranks to say nothing of the lone star-man, picked up along the tenth front last year. A captain was imported but with the usual B Company " sang-froid ' he was welcome and oriented without the loss of a single rifle. And through it all there are rings of spirit of good-will, of supreme indifference to life ' s little adversities. A succession of Tacs has tried without avail to impress the troops with the sobriety of existence, yet the lines have gone on, molded into a good company and a proud one withal. THOMAS C.

Even to attempt the enumeration of the martyred souls of the flanker end of the company, who have repeatedly pounded their heads against alcove bars or gotten to their knees in order to see their faces in the hall mirrors, recalls so vividly in contrast those never to be for- gotten days in the wide open spaces of the beloved " Riding Hall, " that a tear involun- tarily comes to the eye. Goldsmith would truly be flattered for there never could be a more faithful portrayal of the fact that we " stoop to conquer. " Nevertheless, with the change in environment a corresponding change in spirit did not occur.

The stalwart fighting men have a fair percentage to be found reading movie magazines, shamelessly dissipating at the Boodlers, or rolled in red com- forters. Many fight their battles on the academic front (boards), and a losing fight it seems, at times. A dissembled bolt renders others helpless. Some of our " skillful athletes " are still walri. The swinging rhythmic columns have the inevitable bouncing baby boy. Traditions? Plenty of them. Each " D ' Company man picks a tradition peculiarly adapted to his temperament and studiously upholds it. ' D ' Company is full of such traditions.

You students of Military hHistory may well refer to such as Napoleon, Cromwell and all the rest of the renowned runts. It may be said that the scorn of others for small men is caused in part by the capacity for doing things that goes with a runt. The ranks boast much variety.

We wanted to set a precedent by having co-captains, but higher authority cast Tom Darcy into the wilds of Central Barracks, leaving Eddie Farnsworth (with us man and boy since ' 29) to cope with the tacs. Eddie and the company constituted a sort of mutual admiration society, very pleasing to all concerned. We want to be modest, but perhaps it is better to be truthful.

Not much indifference because that only gets you one place — and it is usually either too cold or too hot to make walking a pleasure. It all comes down to one thing. No flanker wants to be in " A " Company be- cause it is bad enough having Tacs without living in front of their cage. So put your pride and joy on a stretching machine, teach him to keep his mouth shut, and send him to " M " Company for four happy years! DANIEL S. SPE NGLER Cadet Captain Page Eighty-three WEST POINT RIVER DEFENSE CINCE earliest colonial days the upper highlands around West Point have been considered strategically impor- tant in the defense of the metropolitan area. Because of its strong location and proper fortification it was not called upon during the revolution to withstand any attack. When our country was torn by civil war, this area was again heavily fortified against attack by water. Today the only river defense armament is kept up for in- struction purposes or as examples of former coast defense artillery.

Years ago it was also an observatory but the coming of the railroad and its underground tunnel made it necessary to move the delicate instruments elsewhere. The Library contains many historic- ally interesting portraits — among which is a Stuart portrait of General Washington.

Near the corner of the Plain, across the road from where Central Barracks is today, two buildings of wood and stone were erected and called North and South Barracks. They were used until the construction of Central Barracks, about which time they were destroyed by fire. i : QMA HTflOkl JAHIOmO e IDA51flAa HTU02 , rl8uon3 Ibw ymsbbDA srij bsisbiznoD easignoD STST HI ismoD sHl ibsH .E)lDbnbd i3lJ3d ni bsauoH sd o) hsUbiz z hb bQ IbVnsD sisrlw moil beoi srij o ob nioN sHj 1o bn b9lDSi3 S13W snoJa bnb boow ]o agnibliud owl .v boJ srfllilfU) b32U 313W ysHT .ajlDbUbS riiuoS bnb ( i o A bsllbD 3n3W V3rl] smiJ rIsiHw juodb ,2 l3bTib8 lbiJn3D o noHouiJsnoD .3irl yd bsyoiJ23b MXPH r.

JOHN BEVIER ACKERMAN Watertown, New York New York National Guard IN spite of the " J. Bevier, " " Ackie " is a right decent sort. " " . He reads ' hHarper ' s, Scribner ' s, the Atlantic Monthly, Golden Book, and an unin- telligible French newspaper. hHe has the finest collection of phono- graph records in the Corps and likes to play Wagner before breakfast. He typewrites better than any amateur ve have ever known and is sus- pected of keeping a diary in shorthand. He has a fiendish ability with a slide rule and has been seen from time to time with stars flanking his Adam s apple. He always does the right thing at the right time, and yet con- trives to run the worst guard roster ever known to civilization — we will never forget that. He always smiles when it is needed most, disclaims any ability whatsoever with the feminine sex, dusts a mean basement locker, and is, we hope, one of our very best friends even if rumor is true about his throwing pistol matches for small sums of money. Page Ninety-si) GILBERT NEVIUS ADAMS Anacortes, Washington Honor School THE Commdndant knew exactly what this fnan ' s ability was, because although he has been here four years his rank has never changed. Twenty has been his magic number on the " make " list through- out his life as a Cadet. Having been to a military school before he came here he knew all about what v as going to happen to him and how he was going to take it. We have memories of him way back in Yearling summer camp when he sprang to fame as a table commandant and a Yearling Corp and a few other things equally as high ranking. It was his ambi- tion to hold down the job as Battalion Adjutant. Asa matter of fact only his love for ' D ' company pre- vented him from becoming Company Commander. We mustn ' t talk too much about a good thing for Gil is a fine athlete too. Any outfit that gets him will certainly be the better for a fine officer.

He has a true perspective that has not become dis- torted by the peculiar circumstances of cadet life, and he retains an accu- rate sense of values. On one side he avoids excessive file-boning and on the other he steers clear of the rock of indifference. Before Beast Barracks was over " Pete " had decided what he wanted at West Point. He set about methodically to gain his ends, and he was almost invariably successful. To his credit he has stars, chevrons, and track honors. But better than these, he has a real mastery of the subjects he studied. At present he seems inclined to choose a branch of the service wherein his technical ability will be exercised, but those who know him are certain that in any situation he will be a dependable and efficient officer, holding rigidly to his own high principles. Page Ninety-seven CHARLES HARDIN ANDERSON Peoria, Illinois Senatorial Illinois WHEN Chuck was a small child back in Peoria, someone once showed him a four footed animal known as a horse. Since that time he has been one of the staunchest supporters of the theory that " the horse is man ' s noblest companion, " and his principal interest in life at West Point has been to do better than Tommy hHitchcock in polo. While he has not yet reached such heights as these, he is a regular on the Army team, and we predict that he will go far in this sport, as he will in any other line he may choose. Chuck is always a good friend, either at the Acad- emy or on leave. Although he is seldom stirred to great activity, when he is aroused he displays great capabilities in academics as well as in the more pleasant occupations. Whenever that extra tenth Is necessary, it is always forthcoming. While we se- cretly envy Chuck, we certainly wish him every pos- sible success. Polo on Long Island — think of it!

DAVID HARRISON ARMSTRONG Troy, North Carolina Seventh District, North Carolina HAPPY-go-lucky-good-companion is Dave, and if you want entertain- ment he ' ll supply it. A well developed sense of humor combined with an innate laziness give this man a continual good time and he s ever generous in spreading around the glow. And he is popular v ith the ladies! People tell of troupes of the fair sex following in the wake of that cap, always cocked over one ear, they leaning on his words, and he on them. Oh, a gay fellow, this Carolinian. Some say he studies, but no one can prove it because he ' s never been seen at it. No doubt about it, he has a way with him, and it ' s bound to take him far after this acid test it has received at the Academy. Page Ninety-eight RICHARD ROBERTS ARNOLD Shrub Oak, New York Twenty-fifth District, New York ONE gala day, four long years ago a handsome, bright-eyed, curly-haired young man dropped his bags in the sallyport and announced that the show might begin. The same day the Cadet Store ordered a new supply of stars, for very soon it was evident that Dick was to take the Academic hurdles apparent- ly without the slightest effort. This, however, was unimportant for in Dick we found a many sided char- acter. One who could at once discourse with the wisdom of a sage or contribute with relish to the most light minded topics of a " bull session. A literary devotee yet well able to enjoy the " Red Book ' and the " Cosmo, " not to mention his ardent devotion to Military hiistory and the funny papers. Apparently a finished product of discipline and firmness while still retaining the frolicking spirit of d colt. His inimitable sense of humor, which enables him to always see the funniest aspects of any gripe or calamity, will carry him far in the pursuit of his many high ambitions. 1 1 Lacrosse (4); Pistol Morksman; Rifle Shdrpshooter; Godt Football (2),S :r3«nt(1).

LAWRENCE BARTLETT BABCOCK Milford, Connecticut Third District, Connecticut BEFORE enlarging upon Babcock ' s numerous virtues, it is necessary to mention his one big glaring weakness. You probably expect to hear something about girls or borrowed cigarettes, but you are mistaken. His was a " podunk complex. " When a youth is suddenly snatched from his family ' s bosom and is thrown into a place like the Military Academy, he either forgets his past life or he retains very, very vivid and dear memories of it. Babcock comes under the latter category. We know more about Milford now than some of its inhabitants, and frankly we would like to live there — if Babcock ever moves back. As to virtues? Just one illus- tration might help make an impression Babcock is a goat, but once when his roommate was deficient and star men were busy with their own affairs, Laurie devoted almost all his time to that roommate. It was a case of " when a feller needs a friend, " but what of it? Babcock was there.

The sunny plantations of old Florida are for him dreams to be fulfilled after he lays aside the Army Blue. As for his academy career, who never heard of the " Midnight Escapade " of Bill Bache during the later stages of plebedom? Also, there are other incidents of his career which cannot be forgotten. Take, for instance, his trip to Washington, D. C, when he lugged a suitcase loaded with sidearms and a complete set of textbooks, all of which were found in due course of time. Bache has lots of determina- tion, and he uses it in common-sense ways. Always he is calm, cool, and collected. An occasional ruffle quickly died away. With such a tempera- ment he naturally has a great many friends. Aca- demic or tactical matters never give him a great deal of trouble. Yet when the v rits come round he is not immune from worry. Bill is an actual proof that the fruit of Southern soils can flourish in the North.

CHARLES MICHAEL BAER Baltimore, Maryland Third District, Maryland Ch ARLES was a hard worker before he came here and hasn ' t gotten over the habit. If you reason with him he will understand; but never draw him a picture! In Tactics and " Dis " he tries to learn about the Army rather than " spec " a lesson. As a result of this inquisitiveness he is more prepared for an Army career than the average cadet. What- ever he tries, he tries hard, and so, succeeds where others would fail. But his gain is always due to his own effort and never at the expense of others. FHowever, all this consistency is matched by one outside of the Academy. Since Beast Barracks his letters to one address and their re- sponses have been monuments of fidelity. He hopes to take Signals, but whatever it is, it is sure to be " with. " Steadiness, perseverance, loyalty, and chivalry are all united in Charley to produce an officer and a gentle- man. Page One J-Hundred EVERETT WAYNE BARLOW Cassia, Florida At Large WAYNE ' S one of those who beheve in taking hfe ds it comes. He hves in the present and the past and future are non-existent. A supreme lover of nature, he can be found on any idle after- noon walking, running, or sleeping in the hills. He makes a hard life easy. He has one characteristic that is akin to absent-mindedness. He never fails to ask the time of a certain formation after having gone to same on the time of day with a clock sitting in front of him. His philosophy of life seems to be, " why worry about little things like that? " He hates social life, but as far as young ladies are con- cerned, he is remarkably proficient. They always want to come back and we don ' t believe it ' s to see ' the charming place. ' Wayne is a staunch defender of the merits of the doughboys, and regardless of his class standing at graduation, we ' ll find him there. And since the success of an officer depends a great deal on his loyalty and devotion to his branch, we can readily foresee Wayne ' s future.

DWIGHT EDWARD BEACH Chelsea, Michigan Second District, Michigan HE swam into our ken back in yearling summer camp those long years ago Cheerfulness is perhaps the keynote of his entire makeup. If you had ever seen him on one of our many hikes into the land of the Popolopen or thereabouts you would have been decidedly bettered by watching him work and listening to him laugh. He frequents the hops more as a matter of duty than as a pleasure, yet we know that he derives from them a great deal of what goes to make up his character as a very jovial man. In the capacity of rammer he was positively " unbeatable. " As a matter of fact the way he brushed aside the famous Huggins was a thing of beauty. We never hope to see anything that was as perfect and yet as slightly dis- astrous as that circumstance. At any rate our gun crew was certainly the better for his help and we hope he carries through every job as well as he did that. Page One Hundred One T WILLIAM GORDON BEARD San Francisco, California At Larsc AFTER two years at Stanford, this suave, debonair youns man turned his conquests toward the East. Since then his existence has been one of con- quests and success. hHis accomphshments have been many and of diversified nature. fHis athletic career started with his briHiant work with the " L " company intra-mural football champions. hHis heady game has earned him a steady position on the tennis team. Bill also finds time to edit the Literary Department of the Pointer. He does an admirable job of running the Cadet Chapel Sunday School in his position as Superintendent. In spite of ail his forte in " the gals, " they all succumb to his charms, and we find Bill with the situation well in hand. Bill ' s propen- sity for gaining and losing chevrons is astounding. In spite of a slight misunderstanding with the Tac- tical Department to the tune of three months in March, June found him a Lieutenant, a true mark of personality and ability.

Nevertheless, he managed to forget Springfield except for that short annual revel in emotion. Unfortunately Thore was one of the big mysterious men you read about in novels. No one knew him except his " wives, ' and the workings of the marvelous machine, flamingly covered with red hair, were unpiumbed by lesser mortals. But every- one did know that Thore was, in the language of the Bronx or the Military Academy, " a good egg. He could joke about a rainy day, a math, writ, a storage battery or an airfoil. His buoyancy and good spirit lifted others out of the slough of de- spond. Indeed, without undue exaggeration, he was as refreshing as a clean pure lungful of Colorado mountain air.

But those who know Frank Besson will realize that to call him a scholar, an athlete, a soldier, and a gentleman is nothing more than a liberal statement of fact. He numbers among his friends both the most ambitious officers and the most indifferent of bucks. And it is hard to say just how many men owe him an untold debt for pulling them through the examinations that kept them at West Point. As the godchild of 09, Frank inherited a deep feeling for the Academy ' s traditions, and he has always used his influence to support the old customs. Sometimes his enthusiasm has brought down upon him the wrath of the tactical department, but he was never one to become terror-stricken at the thought of a demerit. Not for Frank Besson the shame of never having trod the area with the ghosts of the immortal birds.

At one instant his mind and soul are wrapt up in the intricacies of football or lacrosse plays and at the next minute he is gazing vacantly into space, debat- ing mentally the wonders of the universe or the fu- tility of life. Horace took West Point philosophi- cally, hie believes in moderation. Hence he is neither a goat nor an engineer,- neither an outstand- ing athlete nor a totally obscure one. His is a well rounded life. It is easy to picture him a few years from now. The class cup will not be on his mantel- piece but a happy family will surround his fireside. His captain ' s bars will twinkle in the cozy firelight, and as he philosophizes over a pipe he will correctly reason that he has attained true happiness.

Suc- cess is his not only in academics and athletics, but in activities as welL The fine sense of proportion that has regulated his scholastic life has also governed his relationships with his friends. The ease with which he con- trols people and situations has been a constant source of awe to his class- mates. Roger has never been too busy with his own affairs to lend a hand to those having trouble with academics. In fact his academic un- selfishness has cost him heavily in class standing because he puts the troubles of others ahead of his own convenience. Page One Hundred Four .

JOHN WILLIAM BOWEN Oak Park, Illinois Honor School SOMEHOW or other the prospect of writing this biography rather intimidates us. John ' s so deucedly much of an average cadet that the finding of anything to tell about him is a very delicate operation. We drop in so often to borrow his poopsheets (he ' s a confirmed goat), to lis- ten to his music, and to borrow his books, that we feel very affectionate toward the cozy, welcome atmosphere of his house. And being an average cadet, he doesn ' t dare tell us to spend more time at home. You see the average cadet is a gentleman. For some happy reason John can tell a joke, laugh at it himself and leave the rest of us laughing too, — all in a remarkably short space of time. Also, in spite of being a goat (we suspect an attempt at anchor man) he is gifted with more than average intelligence. Thus in one respect he falls short of deserving the " aver- age " stamp. ill!

If once, he was asked a thousand times durins Beast Barracks whether he were any relation to the famous bridse jumper, and the complex which resulted from the constant denial of a bid for fame made him susceptible later to the charms of a youns lady as dark and handsome as himself. He met her at Graduation, yearlins yedi " , and althoush Furloush parted the two they wrote and remembered.

A magnanimous disposition, coupled with a dry and omnipresent wit, made Lew always a welcome addition to our evening bull ses- sions. Lew never suffered any charley horses from studying.

" And so it is, for we have never seen an " A book to compare with Wallace ' s pride and joy. It is the equal of this volume as a pictorial history of our class from entrance to graduation, artistically arranged in the most approved manner. It even gives one a glimpse of life at Mississippi A. and M. and only lacks the story of Wal- lace ' s good deeds as an Eagle Scout — the best in the country, so they say. Brucker is also greatly envied in the Corps for his winning of a fabulous sum of money in an historical picture prize contest. Wallace seems par- ticularly good in historical subjects, for he drove a first section in history — not bad at all! He also stood at the very top in English, disproving our pet theory that a southerner really has not a chance in that department. a !» c ?i! 155 r! a 3 S Page One Hundred Eight IS SEWELL MARION BRUMBY Ccdarlown, Georsia Seventh District, Georgia WEST POINT has failed Sewell in one major re- spect: it has failed to produce in him the slight- est appreciation for the fair sex. Sewell was, and re- mains, a man ' s man,- to him, women are, and remain, a necessary evil. Sewell has always been of a rather retiring nature. Possessing a wealth of natural material, he has let it lie dormant here, hie has kept in the background and let him xA ho would be famous do the worrying, hie has been content to keep safely above the precariously-founded bottom of the class without bothering to elbow his way to the top. hie has sat back and watched the days roll by, while others have sweated and toiled. " Graduation comes no sooner to those who labor than to those who wait, " Sewell observes, and wisely. Sewell does vi ant to graduate and make the air. All temporary local honors, such as chev- rons, academic ranking, and the like, with their at- tendant responsibilities, would be merely making the road to his one all-suffering ambition unneces- sarily rough and difficult.

He came in and proceeded to sit down and play the same piece as if he had been doing so all of his life. In amazement we asked him, " hHov come, and what the devil? He then proceeded to explain that ever since he was six months old he v as able to execute with per- fect technique all the works of Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, and Carney. This certainly made us feel very happy and from that time on we pestered the life out of him to play for us. And we certainly must give him credit for remembering from his childhood some of the things that have perplex- ed us all our lives, hiaving been in the Air Corps before he came here there is little doubt as to the branch he takes. Anyway, he knows ail about it and will feel at home there.

EDWARD JOSEPH BURKE New York City, New York Twenty-first District, New York ONE glance at the flaxen-haired Eddie and a real reason is discovered for his nickname " Gnome. " It would be hard to find a more elf-like countenance or a more fitting nature to go with it. That is, after you know him; because he speaks very little to strangers or to those whom he knows but slightly. He hails from New York, and lives up to all its tra- ditions. The fact of the matter is that " Gnome " is very reticent. No- body knows just exactly what transpired on the many nights he spent in Williamsburg on the Virginia Trip, hie seldom drags, and spends a good deal of time with books and study. Also every fall the " B " squad re- quires a goodly amount of time and effort, hie works hard at all his jobs and puts into them the labor they require. That being one of the most important traits of a good officer, we expect fine reports of Eddie when he breaks the friendly ties that bind him to us and commences his career. Page One Hundred Ten THEODORE GEORGE BURTON Alhambra, California Army THIS sun-tanned, loyal son of California came to us with a discreetness whicfi was probably due to fiis previous and premonitory experience as a soldier and midsfiipman. Ted is willins to indulse in fun wfienever possible and is ready for work wfienever necessary. Ever ready to enjoy a good joke, he is seldom without an appropriate and witty retort. " T. G. ' s " possibilities as a leader were early recog- nized when he was called upon to lead his class- mates of " G ' company during Plebe Christmas. But his easygoing congenial nature, while appreciated by his friends, seems to have detracted from such a position of eminence. In his Yearling year, T. G. revealed a talent for drawing, as evidenced by his position of section marcher of the first section. Al- though his modesty retarded the popularity of his artistic creations, an increase in en thusiasm and con- fidence have given Ted ' s drawings a large field of admirers. Burton ' s ability to adapt himself to any environment and his large amount of practical com- mon ' sense insure his success in the future. ,1)iHi»Ji limMKU ' (2-1), Ensineer Football (2), Al- pha B«M (3-2-1), Acting Cor- poral (3), Corporal (2), Lieuten- antd). f 1 ] T V 1 ▼ 1 V 1 1 ' i; 1 1 ▼ ' ■ 1 BasebalC(4), Gymnasium (4), Soc- cer (4) Ring Committee,- Fisliing Club; Corporal (2), Sergeant CD.

When you consider that he smilingly and easily overcame the ob- stacle of " Aloysius " and the fact that he actually lives on Staten Island you realize what a wonderful, masterful ability he has. His accomplish- ments are many. He leaves the femmes in huge heaps behind him every- where he goes. He plays hockey like a demon — including the language, at times. He wore out three sets of slide rule runners in one year getting right answers. His Spic may be judged by the name his section called him — " Dmitri. " Shucks, we can ' t say anything dirty about him. We have roomed with him for four years now and think he is the best in the world. He is absolutely genuine. If we had it all to do over again, we would choose him again for a wife.

BOGARDUS SNOWDEN CAIRNS Manchester, New Hampshire At Large THE son of an Army Medico is not usually looked upon with much favor In the Corps of Cadets. But Bugs is one of the exceptions. It seems that he has a peculiar faculty for getting things done. Evi- dences of this are not lacking. The hHov itzer itself is one of his creations. In athletics, he has taken to water and had four successful years of competition in the pool. As a snake, he has few rivals in his class. These are just superficial evidences of the driv- ing power that is in the man beneath. The crown- ing glory of his work here aside from being a good military man, having attained the rank of Cadet Ser- geant, is the Howitzer. All of his classmates will remember him with gratefulness for the production of this monumental V ork which binds us closer to- gether after graduation. We will unhesitatingly predict a great future for him, as an officer, gentle- man and editor. He should have few peers.

WILLIAM ALDEN CALL Lansing, Michigan Michigan National Guard THE main thing wrong with Alden is that he thinks no one loves him. As a matter of actual fact though we wouldn ' t exactly call it that. Lacrosse claimed this lad when he was but a mere babe, and the result can now be seen — that is, if you can see beneath all the scars on his face. The immortal trio of Call, Roth, and Snyder will never be forgotten in the annals of the history of the 1 7th division. Call and Roth are Lieutenants, and the confisted Hank is Captain of the chess team. We really think Call missed his Calling — he should have been a trainer of the immortals. He will probably never forget his claim to distinction v hich occurred when he was mistaken for his disciple Irving. At any rate the three are so firmly bound by ties of friendship and struggle against a common foe that we knov they will keep together hereafter as they have done before our eyes here at West Point. Page One Hundred Twelve DANIEL STONE CAMPBELL Booneville, Indiana First District, Indiana WHEN one meets our Danny, one is almost misled by his apparent bashful and retiring nature. But do not be deceived, as many women have — to their sorrow. His quietness is but the shell of a driving personality. He usually gets what he goes out for, even though he wears only a lieutenant s chevrons at the present time. In academics, in cross-country, on the track, and even in snaking, we have observed the working of his " Never say die! " slogan. For this reason, he is usually the victor in all contests. In future years, we ' ll let him write his own story, " From Farmer Boy to General.

Lonaconing, Maryland Sixth District, Maryland MORE familiarly known to his classmates and soccer public as " Lony- cony, " George for four years has been a shining light in our midst. For the utmost in congeniality, we could ask for no one but Lony — in fact, his only enemy here at U.S. May was himself. He was nearly found him- self one dreary yearling year when he had sacrificed practically all of his available leisure in coaching his classmates in academics. For all of his accomplishments, Lonycony is a modest sort of fellow. No one talking to him would know that he had as captain led the soccer team through one of the most successful seasons in the history of that sport at West Point. It is with a feeling of pride and confidence that we send Lony out into the military world. Page One Hundred Thirteen CHARLES ALEXANDER CARRELL Lawrenceburg, Tenness ee Seventh District, Tennessee CHARLES, who is known to many of us as the " Sinner, " is not what his nickname would imply. Although naturally quiet and modest, he is one of those rare types which we are bound to notice. With his happy-go-lucky air and ready smile the " Sinner " would be conspicuous by his absence. He came to West Point (little dreaming what awaited him beyond these dim, gray walls) with the idea of becoming a lawyer, but since Yearling Math., Charles has decided not to let academics interfere with his education. The " Sinner ' intends to take the Air Corps without feminine entanglements. A man like Charles will always do his best. We wish him our best — always. Gymnasium C4)j Howitzer (4-3); CorpoMl (2).

ROBERT LYNN CARVER Dallas, Texas Senatorial, Texas A GOOD mixer, with always a friendly word or spontaneously clever sally of some kind. Rosy breaks down all barriers of sophisticated reserve and substitutes an open, confidential friendliness. Of a cheerful, happy-go lucky disposition, " Rosy " takes life not at all too seriously. He is one who can see something to laugh at in the most tedious and trying ordeal — that is a first-rate virtue. If " Rosy " has gone proficient for the week, is under the limit in demerits, and has a sweet little femme coming up for the week-end, he is at peace with the world. If not, well, he doesn ' t worry about it a great deal. Other than for his disposition " Rosy " is famed for his athletic prowess. At home on any kind of ath- letic field or court, he puts forth his best effort at football. Playing a very heady game at quarter, " Rosy " has the rare efficiency of being able to get the men he leads to give their ver last full measure.

Nothing could be more logical than that he should have been made a first sergeant. His viewpoint was most materially changed when for a short time he entered the ranks of the indifferent " C Company. But he still clings to his pre- cise nature and will certainly represent the efficiency of West Point when he moves from that place into the Army. He comes from the same place that our wife comes from with the result that he does have at sometimes a most peculiar outlook on life, but taken all in all his staid attitude and seri- ous contemplation of the problems of nature will always stand him in good stead.

Despite the fact that Jeff hails from Texas, he makes no claim to being woolly, h e is a first-rate fellow, offending no one and taking offense at nothing, hie is sincere, frank, honest, and quite hivey. He is not at all bashful and this fact should stand him in good stead in the years to come. We are very glad to have known him and are unable to find any fault with him in any way. He is recommended to anyone who is look- ing for a person whom he can trust and who will not be forever glancing off at a tangent in a half-cocked manner.

Fort Benning, Georgia Senatorial, Kansas ANOTHER Army child! — and one of the best. During plebe year upperclassmen used to ask Jim what part of Canada he came from, after he had answered ' Kansas, sir! ' But now Jim is from Benning, in Georgia, and has been in Panama, and at Sill and the rest of them. In these wanderings Jim has picked up the faculty of making friends with people. Another quality his Army life has given Jim is a liking and an aptitude for soldiering. Jim knows his drill as well as he knows his men and his horses, with a certain insight and understanding that will be in- valuable to him later on. Potentially an excellent athlete, too, he has been compelled, since plebe fall, to give up most of his time to the aca- demic grind. The way has been hard, but he has fought with a grim determination that has enabled him to ove rcome all obstacles. iaatl. m m Page One Hundred Sixteen ALLEN FRASER CLARK, JR.

CHARLES ALBERT CLARK Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Fourth District, Illinois FOUR years ago when Charles Albert Clark, Jr., walked through a cer- tain sallyport, fev of us knew him well. But it was not long before Charlie had grown about three inches taller and earned for himself a place in the hearts of all his classmates. Charlie is the kind of man who would give his teeth for a good cause. Charlie came to our atten- tion yearling year when he became a regular on the lacrosse team. And it was on the lacrosse field that Charlie gave his teeth to help the Army be the winner in that gentle ' Indian game that he loves so v eW. His geniality makes Chuck one of the popular men of our class. He is one of those few men who can be sincere in all his work and still not be called a " file-boner " , and at West Point that is an accomplishment. His frankness and his clear sense of fair play, together with a keen judgment, unanimously elected him as Honor representative of L " Company.

An A.B. twice (and one of these times saved by the King of Siam) he had many tiffs with the T .D. while his relations with the " tenths " were very poor. Always, however, Pat managed to squeeze by at the last moment. hHis main accomplishment seemed to be the strumming of an old banjo tuned like a uke. With this he kept time to some of the fnottest music ever heard from a Victrola. The vie was Pat ' s diversion, and it was going full blast at all times. Indifferent to the nth degree, first class buck supreme, and knight of the area, no one can say that Pat was not well liked by his classmates.

But Avery, a true son of Ohio, decided that he would rather serve his country as an Army officer for a while, at least, before becoming President. And so he came to West Point. We have watched Avery with interest during the past four years, and we are mightily pleased with his showing, e has al- ways accomplished his ends with a minimum amount of effort. If things were going wrong Avery was always the last person to complain. The rest of us might worry or fret about the latest orders and restrictions placed upon us by the Tactical Department, but Avery shrugged his shoulders and refused to be bothered. The Class of 1932 wishes you success, Avery. Your even temperament, natural ability, and sterling qualities as a gentleman should aid you greatly in your Army career. • !

WALDEN BERNARD COFFEY Niagara Falls, New York New York National Guard you didn ' t know that the girls in Buffalo were the most beautiful in the world, did you? But then you have never talked to Coffey. Perhaps it was this cynicism that started him off in his boredom with the better things of life as offered in these parts. The passing of years mel- loxA ed him somewhat but there are still traces of the old spirit when inter- murder is not called off on a rainy day or when the sun is too hot at drill. He is heartily recommended to any commanding officer who wants a good, frank opinion as to what is wrong with the outfit in general. He has many opinions, is quite successful with the " weaker " sex, gives the appearance of being entirely indifferent whether the world moves or not — and probably is — , studies enough to get by, and once upon a time showed promise as a dangerous hockey player, but let ennui get the best of him.

Bill tried his hand at many sports but never quite made the first string. However, these set-backs did not deter this athletically-inclined lad; he could always try another sport. " Sugar " was free from worry and was easily satisfied, taking things as he found them. Others were loath to tell Bill a joke, as the telling was generally followed by a neces- sary explanation. But this merely gave Sammis two opportunities to laugh, one at the telling and another after the explanation. Although an excess of demerits always affected Bill ' s Christmas Leaves, he managed to make the football trip to Stanford in Yearling Year. There was never a more happy man in barracks than Bill when he found out that he was proficient in " Descrip " and could make the trip. ■ ■■BnHi5P?

" is the question that has often been asked of John s young piebe brother. However, it seems that the charge held against our rangy Westerner is in a large part unjust. We believe that John takes a certain pride in having others think of him as a rough and carefree hombre, a worthy son of wild Arizona. Nevertheless, who can accuse the captain of the boxing team, the pitcher on the baseball team, and a " b " squad football player, of indifference, -except in other, and narrower, fields? Certainly no one would make this charge who has seen John s en- thusiasm on the winning crew of the pontoon boat race, or in his masterly control over the worst of the riding hall horses. All of us have thrilled at the control and finesse of the crushing lefts delivered by our southpaw heavyweight. But we do not vant to spoil John ' s illusion as to his appearance in ranks. We will concede to him that he has been as success- ful as ever in this effort, and does give the outward appearance of being the most indifferent individual in North Barracks.

Be- ing essentially quiet and unassuming he was not at first recognized as a leader. However, as time went on, we watched him as only class- mates can — under all conditions,- he soon became a very definite person- ality. More than any other man on the Yearling beast detail he put the fear of God into the hearts of the plebes — much to the surprise of many who thought him too easy going and kind hearted for anything of the sort. But they didn ' t know him well enough and have been continually sur- prised at the new angles of his character that come out from time to time. Even now after four years, we aren ' t sure we know him as well as we might for he is still " growing " on us. Moreover Leu s personality isn t the result of any outstanding athletic ability but is )ust the natural result of having lots of good sense and a most engaging personality.

He likes poetry and music — especially of a classical nature, hlis milder pas- times dre sleeping; blowing smoke rings; hazing Yearlings; and figuring out " quill " teeming with de- scriptive adjectives. But Jerry ' s greatest pride and joy is a pair of Sergeant ' s chevrons and the company guidon.

William Whitfield Cuip, of this city— " . In the first days of Beast Barracks the Culpian sound-off had already be- gun to echo in the old Mess Hall. Through the next four years we were often to wonder how such a tremendous volume of noise could come from such a little man. If Bill Culp ever missed a hop, Cullum Hall would have fallen in ruins, just as Kissing Rock is said to threaten to do under certain circumstances. However, to explain his meteoric rise from ' E Company second class buck to " F " Company lieutenant, we will have to search other fields. When v e remember the Virginia trip, the question is answered. Who does not recall his gleaming shoes and leggings at lunch formations, when the mud of Eustis caked our own leather? Be that as it may. Bill deserves his stripes, and we know he will carry his military qualities into the Army with him. ■ ■ ■ i ■ ■ W ■ C ■ Page One Hundred Twenty-two JAMES HUTCHINGS CUNNINGHAM, JR.

It might seem that the difficulties to be over- come here and later might be too much for the capac- ity of this little fellow but we know that his abilities are such that his army life will be as successful as his cadet life. Down at Monroe the plotting car detail would have been practically worthless without his help. The whole success of our firing practice hinged on the famous detail and " Jimmy " was at its center working that brilliant little mind of his just as hard as he could.

To see him at work in the gymnasium reminds you of some stocky Iroquois lad following the lore of the forest. It seems to be one of his qualities to be able to do all his work and all of his play with a great deal of cheerfulness and a manner which excites in another a desire to do like- wise. In carrying our Indian analogy a little bit farther, he seems to have exactly the stolid qualities of wisdom and leadership which are necessary for a good officer. His claims for prominence rest on many and firm foundations, and his claims on the friendship of his classmates rest on more and firmer.

When summer camp came around and he was made a Supply Sergeant, every- one was more or less agape at the fact, because of the qualities of silence that belong to this little fel- low. hHaving been with him in Beast Barracks as a Supply Sergeant we can safely vouch for all his quali- ties of efficiency displayed there. The trouble was that the Virginia trip and its baggage soirees made him so used to the duties of the onerous job that he took every bit of it, even after September, in stride. And talk about methodical methods — he certainly has a franchise on them. So Danny moves right along with a firm and quiet step, and unquestion- ably will step quietly and firmly into his own niche in life. ▼1 ' ▼i ' t; Hockey {.4-3-2-1), Major " A ' , Captain (1), Lacrosse (4-3-2-1), Major ■■A " , Captain O), Athletic Representative (2-1), Sunday School Teacher; Actins Corporal (3), Corporal (2), Captain O) ittUiib THOMAS CONNELL DARCY Boston, Massachusetts Eleventh District, Massachusetts A SCRAPPING Irishman with a French name nurtured in cultured Boston — what a man Darcy! hHe learned to skate before he took up walking, and has played so much hockey that his face wears a puck- ered expression, hie thinks Eddie Shore is a greater personality than Napoleon and would " rather give a man the boards " than be president. This man, Tom Darcy, is all in all a versatile lad. hie probably has more real friends than any other member of his class, and he deserves them all. The captaincy of two Army teams, hiockey and Lacrosse, are tributes to his abilities, as well as to the esteem in which he is held by his team mates. Tom is a man ' s man out and out. Feminine pulchritude has thus far failed to faze him. Since being in the Army, Tom has paid strict attention to business. Although his academic record borders on the goaty, he ' s had his eyes up and made of himself a fine soldier. Pdse One Hundretd Twenty-four RALPH HEMMINGS DAVEY, JR. Providence, Rhode Island Fourteenth District, Massachusetts LET us inform you right at the beginning that we have been prejudiced against Massachusetts ever since that time we were nearly annihilated in a Bos- ton subway. That, however, will not influence this write-up, because it is in contrast to the opinion of that state we have formed in our relations with the efficient Davey that the " undah " appears in such an unfavorable light. From the depths of our own in- dolence we have set New England in its entirety on a pedestal of efficient perfection. Ralph is that. As stage manager of the Dialectic Society, no task was done sloppily or left half undone. His is the nature that writhes in agony at the sight of an imper- fection. That is written with the highest respect and not a little envy, hie will be admired for his thoroughness, but no one will begrudge him the advancement that will follow, for he will deserve it all. The confidence he inspires from others could hardly be more deserved.

It ' s a far cry from the Yale Glee Club to the U. S. May Coilitch Choir, but Dave managed it with the very least of bother and embarrassment. Easy come — easy take — easy hold; and that goes for all of his activities, includ- ing the making of friends. Dave wouldn t know what to do about a man that wasn ' t his friend, but that ' s something he ' ll never have to worry about. With a settled stability that smacks of a more mature person, Dave takes life as a pleasant sort of business. His likeable qualities will stand him well in the future.

With the end of his first year, however, he had definitely " arrived. He has never gone out of his way to acquire honors. Instead., they seem to have been strewn in his path — yet he has taken them quietly and unassumingly. Stars, military rank, and popularity have not turned his head, and he heeds the words of a classmate with as much celerity as he would those of a " Tac. Never shining in any one branch of athletics, he has constantly demonstrated his ability as an all-around man. Was he not the vicious left end of the history- making Engineer football team of 1932? Ell may have left the Academy, but the impression of his ef- forts there will remain for years.

When nature ' s adventures come his way, he smiles cynically, with his usual remark: " Well, it might have been heads. " Have you ever heard him complain of life? f lo, never. He believes in taking things as they come — being always pleasant, cheerful, and agreeable. An adopted cousin of old Bill, the Private — he could never take time out for file boning.

We dare say some of Roger ' s efficiency is thereby inherited, but over and above that, he has developed an original efficiency all his own. That no other has possessed such effi- cacy is fortunate, for then there should have been nothing to improve, no better way of doing things. For, by improving, ameliorating existing standards Roger exercises an inherent belief that things are not as they should be. Rather than sit back and take things easy, Roger has reached out for all that was there. He has " hitched his wagon to a star " — and has done unusually well despite the occasional dis- appointments that accompany such high aspiration. We expect big things of this man,- we see in him po- tential future success — for with good efficiency, output equals input, and we have seen him apply the input. oolball (4), Track (3), Boxing (3- 1), B««t«ll (2-1); Goat Football Ride Marksman; Pistol.

PHILIP VIBERT DOYLE Boston, Massachusetts Sixth District, Massachusetts ThIlS is another person who can be high ranking and important without any particular or evident exertion on his part. Be the capacity first sergeant, hop manager, or battalion commander, he takes it right in stride. And speaking of hops and their managers, this man was certainly rightly chosen for that job. He spends many of his evenings on the hop floor of Cullum suavely introducing or meeting the highest of the high and politely carrying through his delicate duties there. We remember him rather particularly as a member of Number One Gun Crew down in Virginia, and the manner in which he carried out his duties as azimuth setter. It is believed that he cut the record down for that operation from five seconds to two and one-quarter seconds. That seems to be his forte because breaking records is one of the easiest things he does. We know he will break some more as time goes on.

He spent Second Class year describing the way he was going to hold a pivot First Class year, and then spent First Class year won- dering how he got chevrons. He has never yet been known to admit that he can do anything v ith- out tying it up, but he has never yet been known to tie anything up. He is frank, outspoken, athletic, courteous, kind, obedient, — but maybe that is some- one else.

The result is that he is looked up to by the rest of us as a master of the art of suave, polite, and pleasing conversation and manners.

The result is that he can give an expert opinion on almost any subject with very little thought having been given to the matter. Al- though not a brilliant athlete " Papa " spends a great deal of his time in riding and is certainly among the best in that activity. We hope he gets into the Calvary because he undoubtedly wants it and will ma ke out well in that branch of service. In our minds he and Ernie Powell seem pecu- liarly the same.

He adds to the brightness of the Pointer (when he is not too late with his copy) with a page of witticisms attributed to Sallyport Sal. He is known by every man on the post and disliked by none. He had rather be in a mounted outfit than be president. He comes from Hamlet, N. C, and will argue with anyone for any length of time on any subject pertain- ing to the beauteous Southland. He has been re- ported for every offense known to the authorities, but has never yet lost his ideahstic ideas about West Point. No one who has known him can ever forget him any more than one can help being fond of him. He is positively a fund of information on any subject with the exception of math. He is adept at every- thing except writing a legible hand and drawing a straight line with a ruler. He will some day be fam- ous for preserving the morale of troops when every- thing seems lost.

When we were boning Descript and Phil, Earl would be engrossed in Goethe or Omar Khayyam. Then, finally, he decided that as a First Classman he would not like carrying a rifle (he had already been carrying one at West Point for four years). The result was that the Tactical Department took his rifle from him and gave him three striped chevrons. We no longer envy Earl for his good fortunes. For his unstinted generosity and ever-present cheerful attitude on Life we wish Lady Luck to continue to be on his side. Here s hoping you will like the Air Corps, Earl. We are wishing you many happy landings, old man.

At contract he sits phleg- matically across from his partner and invariably seems to have the cards which help him most. We played this fascinating but time taking game with him all during the Virginia Trip, and we know that he has a great desire to indulge in that pastime. During Beast Barracks, however, the horrible red tape at- tached to the first sergeant s job prevented him from getting around to playing. Now that he is a lieu- tenant, no doubt there will be repetitions of our games. From all we know of Tommy it seems to us that he does all his jobs just as well as he plays his game of bridge. So if he continues to hold the cards, we expect noth ing less than a Grand Slam.

He has left an enviable record in athletics especially baseball, having played four years at third base without a substitution, and gaining the confi- dence of his teammates to such a degree that they elected him to the captaincy of the Plebe nine in ' 29 and the varsity team in his final year.

Without doubt Norman ' s future home, wherever it may be, will be equipped with rings, and likewise, without doubt, any little Fords who may make their debut will cut their teeth on flying rings. Norman ' s activities were not limited to the gymnasium, hie frequented the hbrary to cater to a weakness for literature,- he was active in Corps activities, his warble could be dis- tinguished in the choir, and better still he wandered about from room to room, stopping whenever he bumped into a B.

" Who else could it be but Wild Bill, the Water- loo of all P ' s and the terror of Flirtation? Bill ' s outstanding characteristics are originality and tenacity. You would never have believed that three years ago he was unable to turn over in a bed without a down-hill slope. As a result of three years of hard work he has become an ac- complished gymnast. Theoretical and practical — that ' s Bill. When it comes to obeying Regs, Will follows the general theory but as for break- ing them, he is intensely practical. He knows his chimneys. He can give you the capacities in any units from " cit " clothes for furlough to pneumatic mattresses for Popolopen. At times Buster seems very gullible, but he always leaves you v ondering whether he is laughing with or at you. Page One Hundred Thirty-four I WILLIAM HARVIE FREELAND, JR. Villisca, Iowa Ninth District, Iowa BILL never loses his temper. We have never seen him display real anger. He never frowns. As a matter of fact, if Bill isn ' t laughing, his face is ex- pressionless. And when he laughs, the world laughs with him. Self-confidence, self-control, and independence — these are his outstanding character- istics. Nothing seems to worry him, and he knows the proper solution to every embarrassing situation. He would be very useful as an advertisement for Murads, being one of the most nonchalant men at the Academy. There is only one thing that ever won a decisive victory over Bill — his spic book. Many an hour has he spent wrestling with this terror, and his reward was an even break in the end. When Bill says he ' ll do a thing, he does it. hHe never backs out, but carries everything through to a finish. There is no doubt that Bill will go through life with colors flying, finding many friends and at- taining great success in his chosen career. cl (4); Cross Country (3), Co ral (2); Supply Serseant (1). f!!

Fortunately for the Corps that sense of humor found an outlet through the mediums of pen and ink sketches. Joe showed the Corps the funny side of every-day life at the Academy and we enjoyed West Point more than would have been possible otherwise. As much as we liked Joe for his art, we liked his personality more. He always has a " come-back, " a drag for a hop, a drawing for our hop card, and an extra clean undershirt.

Disdaining idleness, he devotes his spare hours to some kind of worthwhile endeavor in the majority, to particularly capable Pointer and Howitzer staff work. Secondly, Dan is frank. He is one who, among men, says just what he believes. Quick to praise where praise is due, neither is he slov to cen- sure where censure is merited. Thirdly, Dan is a man of social accom- plishment. Suave, urbane, polished, he can always be counted on to do and say precisely the right thing at the right time. Dan ' s assiduousness, frankness and social grace should stand him in good stead in the service.

MILTON SHERRETT GLATTERER Atlantic City, New Jersey Second District, New Jersey A ITER waiting in vain for a vacancy so that he could become a " mid- dy, ' Milt decided he would do the next best thing — try to enter the Military Academy. After arriving here and going through a couple of weeks of Beast Barracks, he wasn ' t so sure that he had made a wise choice. After trying the numerous pastimes, Milt decided that the bunk habit was the least exhausting and the best way to forget the newly developed gripes. He is a very conservative fellow, and one v ho does not advo- cate piping a Christmas leave or any other event that one thinks will be enjoyable. Having decided during the earlier part of his cadet career that the " Doughboy ' was his branch, file boning never bothered him. But beneath his reserved exterior there is an ability for efficiency, a sin- cerity, and a personality well worthy of the service. ■. ' .

JAMES EDWARD GODWIN Economy, Indiana Twelfth District, Indiana WHEN Jimmy decided to come to West Point, De Pauw lost a good man. Unfortunately, however, for Jimmy, he was placed with the Runts in F Co. (F Co. has the reputation of being the company where " Plebes are Plebes and upper-classmen are hard-boiled eggs. " ) This was an affront to Jimmy ' s dignity, for he had always considered himself quite the average man in height. Yearling year found Jimmy climbing both in prestige and in height. He was transferred to H Co., and proud- ly displayed on his sleeve the two stripes of the " Yearling Corp. " Second Class year saw Jimmy ' s interests turned to soccer. Due to his zealous efforts as coach, H Co. had a team of championship calibre. First class year as always ideals turned into reality and hopes were real- ized. Jimmy will venture out into the service with his customary zeal, though starting as a Plebe in the school of life. Pdse One Hundred Forty JOE EDWIN GOLDEN Peoria, Illinois Sixteenth District, Illinois AFTER the first day of acddemics, Plebe year, Joe was dubbed " Max " by one of fiis classma tes because he had maxed his first math recitation and thought he was well on the path that led to stars and academic glory. He has been a goat ever since. Joe has always been athletically inclined. In foot- ball he was never an outstanding star, but always played hard and determinedly, occasionally exhibit- ing brilliance in plunging and kicking. Baseball, too, has claimed his ability, hie quickly won fame as a hitter, usually coming through with a hit when it was most needed. A familiar shout at any game was " Drive it over Cullum, Joe! " Joe s pleasant disposition and keen sense of humor have done much to make him a perfect three-year wife, hlis sym- pathetic appreciation and generosity are boundless, and he has never failed a friend in trouble, whether it was a case of dragging blind or a much-needed loan. Joe is boning the Air Corps, and with his determination, stamina, and spirit of aggressiveness, he should make a name for himself in that service.

The outstanding event of " Wot ' s " cadet life was his one major battle with the academic department. This struggle was the time-honored one with " Descript. " First P. Echols lured " Wot " into a sense of false security by an organized series of advances. He advanced him five sections all told, before the writs began. Then he swung shock troops into action. Profile planes followed second angle projection. Lines not only failed to intersect on paper, but they did not meet on the desk. As a climax, the confident instructor Rnally loosed the hitherto undefeated torus. Walter, in desperation, countered with a series of planes perp endicular to the vertical axis. Needless to say, this gallant gesture routed the forces of the mathematics department and assured the victor a military career. Since then his only worries have worn skirts. ■ ■ 9 X Page One [Hundred Forty-one WALTER PARKS GOODWIN El Dorado, Arkansas Senatorial, Arkansas WELL, here he is.

Looking at a string of red zeros across the top of his board day after day in Spic class while everyone else was busily decorating his board with beautiful color schemes won our everlasting disgust — or perhaps it was en- vy. However, things like this didn ' t seem to bother him much because he kept right on driving the first section, and the rest of us kept right on decorating. " Joe " passed the first year within the portals of " C ' Company, but unable to bear the strain any longer, moved over to the freer, cleaner air of dear ole 1 Company. He appears to have rather enjoyed the change of climate — at any rate he has been able to bear us and we have certainly welcomed someone to take care of the Plebes whom the rest of us were too lazy to bother with. Yes, he is quite energetic. He swims the year round, reads with great zest, and studies enough to keep him at the top in every sub- ject. ; H. ilB» N i);a»irP;]!

If you want a good b. s. session with lots of good grinds, look for George. When he is not boning fiction or playing polo he can chase the blues from any outfit. He gets a big kick out of playing prac- tical jokes on people, but that is all right because he can enjoy one on himself as well as anyone. He has played polo since he could climb on- to a horse, and when he came here he made that his principal pursuit in life. On the polo field he is one of the best, and has always been a big factor in Army ' s victories. " Ren " is boning the Cavalry, and he will probably end up there. But wherever he goes, the Service will gain a real man.

If he was not an intimate friend of a classmate he was known to that classmate by the ideas he expound- ed in the classroom. And he was in all sections from the first to the last, depending on his like or dis- like of the particular subject. The Engineers knew him from his mingling with star dust in languages, history and economics. hHe is best known to the Goats through Electrical Contact. Luigi was never known to let things worry him. hie considered low tenths, skins, cons, and tours as the natural course of a peaceful life and just laughed at them. He has read many books on psychology and philos- ophy and has evolved a philosophy of his own — " Take things as they come, grin and keep going, — and he is supremely happy. JAMES WALTER GURR Dawson, Georgia Third District, Georgia ANOTHER trick of chance — or Fate, perhaps — or perhaps merely the matter of a tenth or two lost amid the intricate maze of Engineering writs, individually or collectively, stayed the hand of Time, bade James Gurr tarry yet awhile among these greystone walls. A word suffices to classify some men. Others require two or even more. We may call him an athlete because of his hard work on the football team, his prowess at wrasslin ' , or his speed upon the track. We may call him indifferent toward his studies because he ranks low through choice and not necessity. Or again, we may say that his persistence and aggressiveness mark him as a leader — but all these statements serve only to bracket the man himself. To know him, one must meet him — and to meet him is to be impressed by the quiet force of a personality whose future lies as hidden as is his very personality; as hidden, yet as sure to rise to prominence.

CHESTER HAMMOND District of Columbia At Large FOUR years ago Chester entered the Academy, resolved to uphold the records established here by his family. His sober train of thought and his strength of will held him unswervingly by his course through all the vicissitudes and trials that blocked his way. The fact that academic success came only after hard work tended to make him ever more studious. Yet he always retained his ability to give and take, and always looked on the bright side of things. The result was that he was liked by everyone with whom he came in contact, and was accorded a leading position wherever he went. His personality and merit were recognized as they should have been. We know that his success so far is merely a preamble to what it will be in later years. We wish him luck.

By looking at his excellent conduct record, which he upheld all four years, one would think that Tom had no time for those wild oats. However, we know better, ah! yes, much better. We goats were all proud to have Tom with us. The only time he saw fifty stars was when some Engineer s knee ca- ressed his chin in the Goat-Engineer football game, and that was too late. The doughboys will be lucky to get a man like Tom because he is a real sol- dier and will go far in that line.

However, the English department almost put a serious crimp in those few, when they told him to take the turnouts Plebe Christ- mas. Evidently then and there Floyd took an extreme dislike to v earing white gloves to class, for he has since kept himself so well above all dan- ger of a recurrence of that event that he has come to be more in danger of wearing stars on his collar than on his bathrobe. Swede has never laid claim to being an athlete. Nevertheless du ring Plebe year he turned soccer player and wrestler of some merit to gain a half year ' s deadbeat at training tables. Hans, as a rule, takes life easy and worries little; but work is no obstacle for the attainment of something he really desires. Helpful, generous, sociable, it has been a pleasure to have known him and to have lived with him these four years.

He had looked forward to West Point and service in the army as his ultimate goal. Conse- quently, he was well prepared for the academy. Academics and ath- letics held no terrors for him. He took each new hurdle in his stride. And he has already proven himself a soldier. Yet with all of these quali- ties we could not get the stamp of our approval upon him if he had not something more. This something is the ability to be a friend and a good one. It is more important to us than anything else, for to be a good friend one must be worth while. Other desirable qualities are integral parts of such a man. That is why, after considering the many points upon which we could dwell at length, we sum them up in paying the great tribute of calling Hunter a staunch friend.

THOMAS HENRY HARVEY Bay City, Michigan Tenth District, Michigan TO be the most militaristic man in a militaristic set is not Tom ' s ambition. An exponent of individualism and self-expression, excessive discipline does not fit in with his scheme of things. " Just one of those unpleasant- ries that must be endured, " is Tom ' s v ay of expressing it. Tom manages to do well the things he undertakes, with a minimum of endeavor. He has always ranked well academically without studying to excess,- he has been on an athletic squad of some kind all the year round without train- ing to superfluity. If Tom exercised more fully his latent powers, he could rise to the heights. He sees no reason, though, to make brilliant his star of achievement when it gleams bright with his moderation of effort. No glory-seeker, he. Tom wants some branch where the ability to do is ranked above militarism in the absolute.

At no time has he appeared to be in an up- roar either over academics or things military, yet in both lines he always distinguishes himself. The obvious reason is his great adaptability to the circumstances that confront him. If he is not enjoying life he certainly is fooling a lot of people all of the time. Few men in the Academy can lay claim to receiving anonymous letters from ardent admirers — but such is Hero ' s distinction. In spite of this he cannot be accused of being a snake — which is probably a pretty bad break for the femmes.

Even in the dim days of Beast Barracks we saw our Bob forging to the front as manager of that fast-play- ing, hard fighting 4th Co. Baseball team. Continu- ing on his path of progress, it was only a step to the managing of the Soccer Team. Cold winter days found Bob splashing around in the pool or display- ing his skill on a pair of ice skates. In academics his face is well known in the upper sections. hHe stands high in his work, and will graduate well above the middle of his class — a position that will assure him of a place in his chosen branch, the Field.

From the first day of Beast Barracks through First class year, he has carried his famous grin that fairly radiates good fellowship and joviality. His P. D. sense of humor and ever ready wit have helped us to keep a light heart and a cheery manner in spite of every setback. A cherubic smile and a baseball cap set at a rakish angle on his head soon gained for him the enduring and ironic name of Tuffy. " He was anything but a Goat; he, like lots of other men, has found himself at the top in the technical courses and near the bottom in the so-called Cultural courses. He pos- sesses all the potential qualities of a good Army officer, and success will be his in any branch if he can only find something to arouse his enthusiasm and spur him onward toward his chosen goal.

Plebe and yearling years he was company clerk, charged with soiree and duty rosters; second class year, in charge of guard rosters and powerful with Hundredth Night tickets,- and first class year, First Sergeant and Lieutenant, with full say over Hundredth Night seats. Withal, he has handled these difficult duties with great tact, and, instead of causing the usual animosity, he has gained the confidence and goodwill of those in con- tact with him. Certainly, we have here a man bound to be a successful executive officer in the future.

ALBERT EDWARD REIF HOWARTH Colwyn, Pennsylvania Eighth District, Pennsylvania HOWARTH came up from Pennsylvania some four years ago with the firm intention of leaving his mark indelibly on the Academy. Plebe winter found him one of the leading players on the basketball team. The Academic Board was out for blood, however, and began chasing after our hero. He bore it patiently for a while, but soon tired of furnishing free " late lights " for his " wives. " He let everything else go then, and tore out after his adversary. The fight was drawn out, but it soon became evident who was the better man. Having frightened off the enemy, he turned his versatile hand to other things. He became a chorister of first caliber, was one of the key men in " Hundredth Night ' productions, and so on through a long list. We hate to think of parting with his pleasing company, his witty conversation, and his contagious smile. Here s hop- ing we will see him often. ::!

A slight indifference in connection with almost every- thing has kept him from a place in the spotlight. A dislike for publicity is at the bottom of this. He is perfectly content to let the others take the center of the scene. tHe ' s easy going and does what he has to do without complaint — what more can we say?

They are " tractor " and " horse. " But let us not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments. The question of whether Roscoe is a tractor or not is beside the point. We do knovv ' that he can play a trumpet delightfully, that he chooses wonderful selections for the victrola, and that when he becomes irate his features assume to a remark- able degree the proportions and appearance of an equine. This because John Bowen said so. Roscoe comes from the Army, and has more stories and tales to tell of than he has ever been able to tell us. In all seriousness his hard work in the Army and his resultant appointment to West Point, his conscientious and cheerful demeanor here have served as the four years sped by only to impress us with the unquestionable fact that Roscoe Huggins is a bang up good brick.

To go a little far- ther, v e migh easily say that he played everything for the love of playing. hluglin griped, yes, but down underneath, he enjoyed life at the Academy as much as we enjoyed listening to his never ending yarns — particularly the ones about the hHockey trip to R.

RICHARD JOHNSON HUNT Fort Hayes, Ohio Second District, New Hampshire NO matter what the event may be, a last minute call to act as guide at parade, a wedding, or a wake, to know for certain what to wear and do — see our Richard. Ever since the dear old Riding hiall days when plebes were really plebes, he has been the one we turn to when we want to know how to eat olives, how to carve a pheasant, how to treat a blind drag, in fact he can furnish you with a great deal of information on all practical subjects. Due to his rolling gait one can always distinguish Richard even at a considerable distance. In fact, one young lady told him that she picked him out very easily at parade one day. When asked how. she replied: " Oh, I just looked for a Cadet with a sea-faring walk! " We know he will make as enviable a record in the army as he has made here and that the infantry, which as he says is " really the only branch which can be called army " will gain a leader. ▼ ▼ I I ▼ I I ▼ ▼ I ▼ I I ▼ I I ▼ ▼ ▼ I I ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ I I ▼ I ▼ T I ▼ I I T I I ▼ I I ▼ I ▼ I ▼ I I 3 E 1 B h M V Page One Hundred Fifty-seven :llllil 1 Chess Club (4-3-2-1); Fishins Club (1) RiBe Marksman; Pistol Marlesmdn; Corporal (2); Sergeant (1).

Born in California and reared, by a peculiar coincidence, in Texas, he is Western by birth and breeding. (Deeper significance is attach- ed to this fact when we consider the part breeding plays in Texas livestock circles.) Now when a Hutchison acquires an itching foot, he simply has to scratch it, so this youth became, in the course of time: (1)a traveling salesman, (2) a soldier, and (3) one of them thar " West Points. " And speaking of travel- ing salesman, have you heard . . .? No, we II stick to hHutch. Why not? He stuck with us. Al- though endowed with a solemn, immobile counte- nance, " Hutch " has plenty of natural wit. Always cheerful, he generally has a grind to ask you . . . some of them good. " Hutch " has two real hobbies: he reads and he sleeps. (And in the winter the nights are six months long, — a fact which naturally brings us to the subject of women. Now in this re- spect.

To us he became known as Bill due to an incident which had occurred in an even remoter and dimmer past.

DWIGHT BENJAMIN JOHNSON Chicaso, Illinois Tenth District, Illinois O, RARE Ben Jonson. " That long-famed phrase, with a slight ortho- graphical change, is one that would well describe our inimitable Dwight Benjamin. For D. B. is a man who can do any number of things well, yet a man who cares not to achieve the extremeness of perfection in any one. Strange, when D. B. has surmounted some difficult obstacle, be it academic, athletic, or psychic, he does not linger to perfect a mas- tery, but turns to try his skill at other things. And thus does he become a man of diversified accomplishment. D. B. is perhaps something of a fatal- ist. Not that he considers human effort as pitifully futile, pitted against gigantic forces that shape man s fate as they will — not at all. D. B. works for the things he wants, and is unusually successful in getting them. But, when some unforeseen event upsets a well-laid plan, Dwight is not the man to curse or brood — he laughs it off!

A man who will do such an act is possessed of a true Samaritan heart. " John ' is conscientious and hard working, with the kind of ideals which will keep the Army up to its high standards.

He has been both a goat and an engineer. Darned old English always did pull the props out from under a guy. At times his academics have really been a handicap, for they kept him from athletics during his plebe and Yearling years. But, during his Second Class Year, he did everything but push the Engineers off their pedestals, becoming one of them in a very convinc- ing manner. As an athlete, he ' s been Singles Ten- nis Champion of the Siamese Alliance, and a real tough guy of a roll-em around type soccer player, having earned his letter in the latter sport.

JOHN WILLIAM KEATING Neenah, Wisconsin IT is difficult to write a short sketch that will describe Keating. For some reason or other the elusive and subtle Keating cannot be tied down to a few words. " Long John " effervesced. On the hottest day in August, when drill was particularly hard, it rained in the afternoon from two until four and then cleared up nicely for parade, John strolled out into the street, trying hard not to look cheerful, and endeavoring with all his might to suppress the wisecrack to which he knew he would have to give vent. Then, when you were about to congratulate yourself for finding that the mysterious Keating was not funny but simple, you would wander into his room (everyone v ' andered into Keating s room sooner or later) and find him engrossed in high-brow literature. Then you shrugged and gave up the enigma. Only once did Keating lose his nonchalance. When they made him a sergeant he was almost prostrated.

Behind him, nose in the air like a bloodhound, came one of the most famous tactical officers of our time — one who is spoken of as " Pete " in awed whispers. Joe was grinning widely, where most of us would have been trembling in dread and tasting the salty drops of perspiration. Since then we have learned that he v ould have been grinning even if the terrible — shh — Peter had been — two shh ' s — the Com. It is a natural resource.

What would the hHundredth Night Show or Color Line be without his stage and scenery construction? Yes, he v as the one who was respon- sible for the background and settings for many of our would-be stars. Also, our class ring was not enough, so Dave designed and built a nine foot one and let all the classes use it at the ring hop. in intramural, Dave again showed us a thing or two when he time and again crossed the goal for " L " Company ' s championship football team of 1930.

" or " Let George do it! " are trite expressions, but they fully express, never- theless, the idea of the reliability that Nature seems to instill into persons who bear the name of " George. " Steady, reliable, dependable, serious, and hard- working are only a few of the adjectives that are fit- ting and proper for George. Coming from an Army family and having the record of an older brother at this institution to equal or excel, George has had a lot to strive for and accomplish. Needless to say, he has made a name for himself here not only as a student and a soldier, but also as one of the steadiest and best shots to represent this institution on its pistol squad. Never spectacular in his shooting, he always shows a high score in the meets. To the average person George may appear to be too sophisticated and above his years in seriousness, but to associate with him daily is to acquire a more balanced impression. Serious when he should be, in line of duty and in academic work, he is far from being the type which rises at the expense of others.

WILLIAM BING KUNZIG Fort Washington, Maryland Seventh District, Minnesota EVER since " Bill " started his career as a cadet and a gentleman, he has been in and out of trouble — mostly in. Careful analysis reveals that the ultimate source of his worries is the immature condition inv hich he reported to the Academy. A Minnesota environment had bred an over- developed sense of humor and a phenomenal lack of whiskers. The com- bination of the two proved fatal. Plebe year became an unending series of skirmishes with constituted authority. " Bill " survived these frays a bit damaged, but undaunted. Bill stayed over yearling Christmas to survey the riding hall. Exactly one year later he redemonstrated his unselfish nature by again sacrificing part of his leave, this time in a fruitless endeavor to prove that the atom is solely a product of a distorted imagination. Few men have experienced more of the vicissitudes of cadet life than Bill. Few have accepted them more philosophically.

Nevertheless, we all know of one of Philadel- phia ' s fairest who broke down his defense on the Penn Relay trips, and, unless we miss our guess, that classic profile has caused many another pal- pitation.

Probably both are correct. Certainly Rush is conscientious in whatever he does, whether it be working Math problems, drilling a platoon, or dragging a femme. In the last-mentioned pastime, he is indefatigable, as the dazzling array of pictures on his locker shelf will testify. Although he leads a busy life, he al- ways has time to help others with their academic difficulties and has devoted many hours to the woes of the thick-skulled multitudes.

He will undoubtedly be one of the Army ' s best fliers, for he has what the superior aviator needs- -conserva- tism. Charlie was conservative in everything except big-heartedness and in work. He wasn ' t too hard on Plebes, he played a conservative but alarmingly precise game of tennis, he was neither goat nor engineer. But when there was a job to be done, or a friend needed a helping hand, Charlie was there. Only then did he forget his conservatism and plunge in without regard for himself until the friend was out of difficulty or the task was done.

" Mac ' s " likeable nature and everflowing " wise-cracks " made him a very popular man with his classmates. He is studious, conscientious and extremely reliable.

HENRy GRAHAM McFEELY Palo Alto, California At Large HERE is a man v ho chooses his friends slowly and carefully. Mac prefers to limit his friendships to a few real ones rather than to make innumerable mere acquaintances. But he is a lucky man who is a friend of Mac. With a heart as big as a mountain, McFeely would give and give to his own disadvantage for one of his pals. One of the most interesting characteristics of this man is the peculiar brain exercise he in- dulges in. First class year he would open his Engineering book and study till he came to something he couldn ' t understand. Then he would take out a deck of cards and play solitaire for an hour. Then back to Engineering he ' d turn. tHis success in the course is indicated by his mak- ing the course in par. Judging by his kindred spirit with horses, and the way he coaxes them not to treat him too roughly, he should enjoy a life in the Cavalry or Field Artillery.

Many an original witticism has brought Robert Bruce near a drag, hie will be cer- tain to be popular in the service where a funmaker is always welcome. This illustrious tenth-reaper stands as one of the charter members of the Ord- nance 1.0 Club, famed for its ex-Engineer members. Although Mac has had his little indiscretions as a cadet (remember Plebe Christmas), he has also prov- en that he can be quite good at times. An unpre- cedented six month stretch without a demerit earned him the title of " No-demo " McLane and also a lieutenancy. Shortly afterwards he lost a week- end leave on account of excess demerits. Still we are proud of our Mac. Although we dislike part- ing with him, ' e know that we will meet him again in the great family of the Army where he will hold his place as a cheerer of men.

WILLIAM ANDERSON McNULTY Roanoke, Virginia Senatorial, Virginia MAC is, in our opinion, one of the men of whom it is most justly said that he never lost a friend. We have not in four years heard one ill word spoken about him and we are quite a scandal monger. He has never made an attempt to bone a file, he hasn ' t a shady deed to his discredit, he is peaceable, friendly, and frank. There just isn ' t room to criticize him in any way. hHowever, don ' t get the opinion that he is perfect. To claim that would be to insult him. To be perfect, one would have to rank at the top of his class and wear row upon row of chev- rons. That wouldn t be at all like Mac. That would entail an occa- sional file garnered at the expense of someone else no matter how much one tries to get around such unpleasantries. He wouldn ' t do that. In any line where good results are required upon the ability of the doer alone and nothing else, he is the perfect one to commission. Pase One Hundred Seventy-one ■y IT T ▼ BERNARD WILLIAM McQUADE BrooUyn, New York Eishth District, New York A PHILOSOPHER and wit in the best Irish tradi- ' tion is the boy from Brooklyn. Everything ludicrous, incongruous or amusing comes under his observation, whether it be a tactical officer, a para- graph in a textbook, or a tie-up at drill. A lift of his black eyebrows and a glint of a smile always precede a trenchant comment on life in general or, more of- ten, on affairs at the United States Military Academy. " Mac " is so definitely a New York product that he has resisted all temptations to travel any distance from the Big Podunk. When the Corps wenttoPittsburgh, he wanted to change his boodle book into wampum and learn the sign langu age. On " MacOuaddles map, everything west of the Hudson is an unexplorea waste marked Indian Territor . Mac is still unde- cided in his choice of branch. He has held the mir- ror of satire up to all of them, which might make a statement of his preferences embarrassing. One thing is certain, however,- he will be well liked in any organization. More complete maturity can do nothing but improve his fine qualities. • WILLI M HALFORD MAGUIRE Bennington, Vermont First District, Vermont OUR Maggie — look him over. The boy from Bennington. Maggie s most famous accomplishment was the winning of the Battle of Ben- nington. Ask him some day and he ' ll tell you all about it, if you let him. Maggie is a confirmed goat but it doesn ' t worry him. In fact, he revels in it. His greatest pleasure is thumbing his nose at the general reviews. Maguire thumbs his nose at everything. He ' s happy-go-lucky and in- different. But you can count on him to crash through with a bang v hen necessary. Maguire is a pleasant, likeable fellow that stays in the back- ground. He ' s very unassuming, but you can t put anything over on him. So here ' s to Maggie, may his life be long and happy and may he never forget the Battle of Bennington.

No one took him very serious- ly for he didn ' t desire to be taken that way, but everyone recognized his intelligence and appre- ciated his happy-go-lucky spirit. Manhart was very active, hie was cheerful probably because he never had time to become anything else — football, the piano in Sunday School, track now and then, a huge amount of reading, and above all, lots of pure and unadulterated B.

Somerville, Massachusetts Senatorial, Massachusetts BILL MASSELLO came to West Point with his eyes open. After leaving school he worked at sev- eral trades, but he finally decided that an army offi- cer ' s career had certain attractions for a man with a strong arm and a lively intelligence. Accordingly, July Ist, 1928, found his brawny physique covered by the regulation plebeskin. Bill was never terror- stricken at the thought of losing a file, and he was unable to become excited over the mad scramble for chevrons. Yet there is probably not a man in the class who has gotten more out of the place in the last four years. He was never at a loss for something to do, and every afternoon he graced the tennis or squash courts, the hockey rink, or the trails in the hills according to the season and his inclinations. On winter nights and when no other recreation was available he was not above joining some kindred- minded classmates in the telling of long tales or the singing of sentimental songs. hHe will be contented in the Army, and beyond question the Army will be well satisfied with " Bill " Massello.

He has re- ceived more boodle during his four years than most men eat in a lifetime, hie has always been generous, so we can ' t say anything about his gener- osity, but still there is something awfully suspicious about any one man getting so many packages. We wouldn ' t say anything to prejudice the present lucky girl, but it wouldn ' t do any harm to tell her that back before he reformed it was sometimes suspected that he made false — no, not ex- actly that, but, anyway, sometimes he didn ' t mean all that he said. A terrible coquette, in other words. Of course, that s just the way he used to be. m m Page One Hundred Seventy-four ill GEORGE ROBINSON MATHER Waterfown, South Dakota Second District, South Dakota " COUND off, Mr. Mdtfierl " Tfius tfie Law in- structor tells tfie regimentdl ddiutant to make himself heard across the section room.

JOHN ABNER MEEKS Arkadelphia, Arkansas Seventh District, Arkansas JOhHN ABNER, who so recently has come from the wilds of Arkansas, has won a warm place in our hearts. Not only has he been a true comrade, but he shall be remembered as one of us who possessed that rare trait — a sense of humor. We were first startled by Abner ' s brilliant and flowery phrases, " Mister Speaker, mister speaker - - -. " Then he com- pletely took us by storm as being the undisputed champion pig caller of the Corps. He finally wound up by revolutionizing the age-old tradi- tions — i.e., that men from Arkansas come from " Arkansaw " and that they were all Goats. Though sustaining an injury to his leg while participat- ing in athletics Plebe year, he continued to give us his best by holding down a prominent position on Army ' s pistol team, hie has come to us as a self-made man and has won our esteem and admiration through his honorable and manly actions.

One look at that smiling brown face with its twinkling eyes, and the sound of a carefree voice with its trace of Russian accent, and you think you know Steve, but there you are wrong. Under that exterior of irrepressibility and nonchalance lies a deep and philosophical nature. Steve likes noth- ing better than an able opponent in an argument in any subject, all the way from women to the ultimate structure of the universe. Steve has always had a weakness for the fair sex, and fortunately or unfortu- nately, as the case may be, they seem to have a weak- ness for him. No Hop is complete without the sight of Steve convincing each of several femmes that she is the one and only. As an ardent student in the art of enjoying life Steve wi ns a 3.0, and we believe that he will always make good use of this knowledge.

Just ask anyone that knows him. When a controversy arises, the only recourse is to stand back and watch him wax eloquent in the nth degree of self- conviction. Outside of an argument, however, it is well-nigh impossible to darken his jubilant disposition or stop the ever present smile. Occa- sionally he has shown the well known effects of Dan Cupid s bowman- ship, but his defense is generally quite impregnable.

For three long years Roy, of all in " A " Company, reigned supreme at the hops. No one even dared challenge his supremacy. But lest this become hyperbolical, it is better to pass on to other attributes. Roy was not " hivey, " and he belonged to that distinguished and rather exclusive set whose members are popularly known as ' bucks.

Plebe year he took a fancy to fencing and turned out for the team. Starting from scratch, by grim determination and perseverance, he won for himself not merely a place on the squad, but the cap- taincy of it and a reputation as one of the best foils- men to represent the Academy in years. Charlie ' s character is well portrayed by his actions with the foil. On the strip he is cool, determined, forceful, quick to take advantage of an opening and above all an excellent sport. What more could one ask for in a man to lead the army fencing team? Charlie has never had trouble with academics. In fact he could be termed " hivey ' if he would let go of that ever present Red Book or Cosmopolitan. Although not a snake in the strict sense of the word, he can be led to Cullum with the right sort of persuasion. Women seem to appeal to him, but they don ' t worry him as he keeps his head in all situations. I), Paul Milt Corporal (2), Sergeant (1).

He is known to his classmates as one of the more fortunate who can talk with ease and confidence, ready to advance the approved solution of any problem not involving Mathematics. Moose will take the Infantry as a base branch (by choice too), with the possibil- ity of a chance at the Air Corps.

At times he has been known to occupy from twenty to thirty minutes of the time allotted to a recitation and not only do so with the sang-froid of an expert, but also make the P believe that he (The P) was learning something. " Bye " seems to be a combination of paradoxical anomalies. He goes to the Victrola shop and buys the best of the classics but then comes home and plays " Hot Mamma. " Then after having done that he repairs to the Chess Club and proceeds to compose at the piano. And as for a radio we just know that he has at least two of them concealed in different parts of his room. But the whole thing simply boils down to this: — He ' s " Bye.

The bandy-legged, salty sailor man who decided to give West Point a break and allow himself to be graduated a shavetail rather than one of these vile Ensigns. Charlie, the boy who has yet to be caught with a text book open, but who does strange things occasionally like bouncing up to the top of the first section in Spic or threatening the frowning, starry hordes in Phil. With the build of a belligerent Apollo, he turns out to be the mild- est of the mild. With the appearance of the snakiest of the snakes, he turns out to be — the snakiest of the snakes. He, however, is no mean athlete. You should have seen him play field on the inter-murder baseball team. Why they didn ' t even try to knock flies his way, so hopeless it was. Maybe they couldn ' t have hit that far anyway, but he was there waiting, wasn ' t he? He is popular in any crovv ' d, witty, able, and always agreeable for nerves frayed in the tense atmosphere of first sections. One of the best.

HARRY CECIL PORTER Washington, District of Columbia First District, Pennsylvania THERE are very few men about whom it is pleasant to write a biography, but to speak of Harr Porter is to name one of the exceptions. No matter how many bouquets drz thrown at Harry; you can be sure that they are all deserved because Harr is one Hell of a good fellow. Whether you need help on a stiff lesson or an equally difficult drag, just count on Harry. Perhaps you ' re thinking that Porter is a paragon of virtue. Nay, not so. His lates at company formations are as proverbial as his absent mindedness. Agreeable, helpful, generous Harry has only one really serious fault. He persists in losing his temper each week when the laun- dr returns. If you want to see calm old Harr in an uproar just ask how many socks were lost last week in the laundry — then duck.

His fund of general information is enor- mous, and when it fails him his imagination is never at a loss to make up for the deficiencies. Three years ago his interpretation of the concepts or De- scriptive Geometry seemed a little too free to suit the Math Department and as a result he was turned back into our class. Bud has a natural proclivity for making friends, and few men have as wide a range of acquaintances throughout the Corps. Go into his room on a winter ' s afternoon and you will find as many men from the other classes as from his own, a thing which is none too common here. While Bud s Academic path has not been strewn with roses, let it not be thought that here is a goat. Far from it. hlis literary ability has been a tremendous asset in the production of this hHowitzer, and he has been an indefatigable coach to those unfortunates who struggle with the intricacies of the French a. Come what may, nothing seems to shake his attitude of amused tolerance toward the world in general.

" " Sure, " you say — for most Georgia men are either lucky or possess some other quality of equal value. Well, from the time Ernie came here with his unmistakable Southern drawl and his ever present ability to make and hold friends, he walked about unmolested as the Camp tennis champ for the two summers he competed. That — as a last section law man would say — was a hereditament. But it was on the diamond that Ernie showed us Flashing spikes. FHow many times have we seen a scorching " grasswitherer " stop short around first base and a runner disappointed by this initial sackman? Many times we say he handled his place on Army ' s baseball team as a big leaguer of old. The best of luck Ernie, and may you " bat well " out there in the Army.

First he was the model tin soldier at Augusta Military Academy, then he became a col- legian at Pennsylvania, and finally arrived here. As a soldier Bun is one of the best. When it comes to spooniness and snappiness he is up with the most file boning, yet he has never cut a throat, hlowever, these things dre side issues to him; his real field is sport. Physically he is as adept and well developed as any man in the Academy, and no exceptions are necessary. In soccer he has no rivals, as many an opposing defense man can testify. During the win- ter he retires to the gymnasium and works on the parallel bars. In the spring he blossoms outdoors again on the tennis squad. As yet he has never graced an intermurder squad or a company table. Bun can do many things well, and personally he is just as accomplished. He is cheerful, playful, and good natured, not to mention hs sense of humor, in fact he has even acquired the national sin of punning. Nevertheless we all like him and wish him luck. p.!.l)ii«n( ' l I 1(11 foolball (4.3-2-1), Maior " A ' - Captain (1), Track (.4-3-2-1) Maior ' A ' ' ; Wreslhns (3), R.fl.- Marksman, Pistol Marksman, Cor poral (2) Color Sergeant (IV Lieutenant (1) Soccer (.4-3-2-1); Minor " A " (3- 2-1); Gymnastics (4-3-2-1); Ten- nis (4-3-2-1); A.B.; Pistol Expert; RiFle Sharpshooter. JOHN MORGAN PRICE Fort Dodse, Iowa Honor School HAVE you ever been within a block of the second division between reveille and breakfast? If you have, you have probably heard a nerve-racking noise which made you want to choke the man who uttered it. The man to whom you listened (perforce) was probably none other than Jack Price trying to cheer up his moody roommates by singing to them. An episode such as the above is characteristic of John ' s attitude toward life. hJis slogan or philosophy of life might be expressed briefly and effectively by the xA ords " What the hell. fHow he gets where he does with such seeming carefreeness is a mystery to all of us. But he does suc- ceed in a big way in doing everything he sets out to do, and he will prob- ably continue to do so long after he has left the Academy.

DELBERT ABRAHAM PRYOR Lemoyne, Pennsylvania Nineteenth District, Pennsylvania THE state of Pennsylvania has reason to be proud when she views the fact that " Del " is one of her sons. Come what may, we have never been able to discover him in a disagreeable mood. hHis unfailing good nature and congeniality have been no end of a boon to us in our moments of melancholia. The thing that puzzles us is that he has no use for the ladies, but never fear — he just doesn ' t talk about it. It ' s that old Pryor modesty. Speaking of modesty re- minds one of Dels success at giving private lessons in infantry drill to fourth classmen, but he never says a word about it! The second class well remember his squads right and left. Del edited a mean page of poetry for the Pointer — he could pick a winner in that line every time, and by the way, are you quite sure that poetry and the femmes don t go together just a little bit, Del? We, his classmates, hold a warm spot in our memory for Del — and look forward to that time when we shall meet again. Swimming (4-3); Track ( Hundredth Night Show ( Hop Manager (1), Sergean A.B.

' ' Such was the melodic invitation which frequently filled Johnny ' s ears during his first year at the Academy. His popularity at such " social " functions was due chiefly to the fact that the first class mistook for indifference his nonchalant attitude toward accumulating demerits. Always well up in his class academically — in Spanish he was at the very top — Johnny had some time to devote to other interests. Thus the swimming team claimed his attention for several months of the year and after that, track occupied his afternoons. When Hundredth Night came ' round, his Terpischorean gyrations (see Webster) would have caused the great Duncan herself to turn green with envy. But with all of these activities, Johnny found time to become an omnivorous reader and a riding enthusiast. The Cavalry will get an able, straightforward officer in Johnny Pugh.

His back is capable of being bent double in the wrong direction, and the fact that he does this without any seeming effort whatso- ever makes the feat all the more amazing. For at least two or three years the attempt was made to get him to join the gym squad; but he comes from the South and as a result is so used to the warm and pleas- ant climate of that place, that he could not bring him- self to such violent exercise when it seemed to him merely a pastime. But that seems to be the way it goes with " Rom, " because he takes everything just as easy as it will come, and makes the most of it with- out attempting to make it a hardship.

HARRY CELISTINE QUARTIER Voungstown, Ohio Nineteenth District, Ohio FOUR years ago a dark, curly-haired young man, fresh from the pleasures and vicissitudes of life at Carnegie Tech, entered the Academy with the ambition of becoming one of the officers of the army. In the four years that have passed he has shown what a classmate he can be. Although the academic departments have threatened to get him several times, he has al- ways defeated them. On the drill ground, in his studies, on the football field, and in all his dealings with us, it is that feeling of good natured rival- ry which has endeared him to us. A hot temper, inherited from genera- tions of Latin blood, has, at times, blazed forth; but it has only served to carry him to further gains in all that he does and in the hearts of his class- mates. We predi ct for him a splendid future along the course on which his ambitions have so successfully carried him thus far.

One usually associates this particular color of hair with a fiery disposition and an uncon- trollable temper. Jim Rankin, however, seems to up- set this long-standing idea. Rather, you may find Jim s philosophy of life all wrapped up in the fol- lowing: " Tents will be flapped; tents will be flap- ped — oh, hHell — What ' s the use? " For a minimum of effort, Red gets a maximum of results with the ever- present idea of " come easy, go easy, and — when do I get my week-end leave? " Never a shining light in Academics, but surely better than average,- never a chronic griper but undoubtedly one who expresses vividly his own ideas,- such is Red.

No romance for Mike, in fact, just the opposite. We suspect that Riley did his bit of romancing before he came, and the monastic life was what he was looking for. At least, he quickly adapted himself to the rigors of West Point, and showed that, for a fact, men can be natural born soldiers. A fine carriage, surmounted by a head that holds a directive brain, makes up the man. As for popularity, he ' s right among the leaders, hlis classmates showed their re- spect for his intelligence and innate straightness when they put him on the hHonor Committee.

Coming from the ranks as he did, he worked steadily until summer camp saw him first sergeant of ' C ' Company, and his work in the Department of Modern Languages was decidedly creditable. But per- haps the most hair-raising of his exploits occurred when at Langley on the Virginia Trip. It was here that " hHaircut " emulated, yea, even bettered, the amazing records and feats of aerial daredevils of all time by saving himself after crashing through the flooring of a Keystone Bomber. Un- doubtedly, it was grit and determination to hang on v hich preserved his life that day. Perhaps this experience attached him to the Air Corps, but he can get along in any branch, so to " Haircut ' it really makes little dif- ference. He will release his vast knowledge along any lines in which it may become necessary to do so.

To tell the truth, the professor is only about a jump ahead now — in brains or preoccupation. Rude is aca- demically inclined — and does any amount of deep-thinking. He s calm and unruffled — and will be a handy man to have around when excitement is in the air and cold thinking is imperative.

" So I may we speak, at least, of the rollicking, carefree wind that — blowing ever from the West— tossed rollicking, carefree Sam Russell from the Class of ' 31 and left him in our midst. As a stranger, from an- other class — a turnback? Far from it. Say rather, as a friend and classmate whom we may welcome in all sincerity. Sam Russell is peculiarly blessed with qualities which make him welcome in any group of men. Good Sam Russell, stocky Sam Russell — Sam Russell who will argue with either side of any ques- tion, only to admit, when he has won the point, that much might have been said for the other side as well. This is the man who could wear stars or chevrons, or sport titles, A. B., and B. A., with equal grace and equal nonchalance. Son of the Middle West, we may prophesy that if you are as loyal to the Point as you have been to the plains of your own broad Missouri, we shall not lack a friend in those distant lands to which the Service calls you. ), Din S-l ,iSl»w(HM Fim Sergednt (1).

As a result, he very soon mastered the art of Retirer — ing le cou and Bomber — ing la poitrine. Academics never worried him. Plebe year he almost wore stars, and although he never came as close again, this fact was due to a certain young lady rather than laziness. Also, his disciplinary record has suffered for the same reason. Scip never did understand why officers do not want cadets to sit in parked cars. In matters other than academic and disciplinary, Scip has always been active. He has been a letterman in soccer; he has played in the Cadet Orchestra,- he has composed music for Hundredth Night Shows, and has played in the Shows. In fact, he has always used his spare time to some good advantage. Without doubt, he will make a fine officer and Son of West Point.

But one thing Red never learned from textbooks, and with him it is more natural than an about face — that is his smooth southern manner. As a result Red has al- ways been there when it comes to femmes. But even the mighty must sometime fall. When a red-headed woman falls in love, the male in the case is usually a marked man, but when a red-headed man falls in love, things really happen, and in this case they did as is evidenced by the min- iature which now adorns the left hand of the lucky femme. When this eloquent red-head from Louisiana leaves the Point, the Corps will not only have lost an unexcelled cheer-leader, but what is more, it will have lost a true southern gentleman.

Everything interests him, and he does almost everything in a way that is above the average, hie was third string tackle for three years,- he won a letter in lacrosse; he was on the hockey squad but preferred figure skating,- he swims well, shoots well, and dives well. He was in the upper half of his class in academics, and was color sergeant First Class year. It is no mean rec- ord. When the fishing club extended to us the privilege of joining, he joined in less time than it takes to tell it and promptly went on leave. All during the summer we marveled vi hen he came home from a hike and went on a fishing leave. The climax came when he spent the four day leave at Round Pond and Popolopen. We like Eddie for his person- ality,- but we like him still more for his unconscious- ness of Simenson. He never worries about himself, for he is too busy thinking about other people and other things. He is one of those rare people known by some as " natural. " The term means " as one was meant to be.

He has that necessary " stick it out " quality which, when all is said and done, is what distinguishes a man as a man — and puts him in his place ahead of the rest.

All in all, " Skid " is a fine fellow, and one on whom we can depend to do the work, pleasant or unpleasant. We admire him be- cause he can be hard when the need arises, and because we know that no matter how little the job likes him, he ' ll do his best at it.

" Todd has earned a place in the hearts of many boys, and as a result, in the hearts of his classmates, by his able work as Scoutmaster of the West Point Troop. Having been a superior Scout before coming to the Academy, he desired the opportunity to aid others to reach that end. Pursuing the same lines, his ambition is to make the Signal Corps. Give Todd a broken lamp globe, three strands of wire, a piece of wood, a nail, and a cracked dry cell, and in a day and a half he II invite you to hear WJZ on his new radio. If he does make his branch, he certainly will be an asset to it. Although never considered " hivey, " he as- tounded the juice " P " one day in Laboratory with a contraption made in extra time which, when a switch was closed, rang a bell, turned on a light, closed the table drawer, started a motor, and gave the operator a shock — all at once.

LON HARLEY SMITH Houston, Mississippi Fourth District, Mississippi LON somehow acquired the nickname " Pinky, ' and that s why we call him " Light red. ' He has always been more or less of a mystery, for we never knew whether he was laughing at us or with us. He comes from Mississippi, wvhere day-dreams, romance, and mint-juleps abound. No one ever has discovered why he exchanged a life of warm, contented laziness for one of cold, hard work. Since he arrived at the Academy, he has stood upon his own feet, asking favors of no one. Smithy could have been a track star, but he didn ' t want to. He could have played baseball, but he v ouldn ' t. He can do anything that he sets his heart on, because he has the punch to put himself across. His quick, flashing smile will carry him a long way, and will win him many friends. Lon is very independent. He does hat he wants to do when and where he wants to do it, yet he is never obtrusive. Page Two Hundred Two RICHARD HENRY SMITH Washington, District of Columbia Nineteenth District, Illinois A SON of the Cavalry seeking a pilot s wings! And such strange contrasts hold throughout with Smith. Intensely practical but at the same time a confirmed dreamer, hie has the muscular develop- ment of a heavyweight wrestler but delights in draw- ing. hHis love of music is exceeded only by his ha- tred of the study of foreign languages. Smith is an outdoor man by nature and by that same nature he is a book-worm, hie is as ready to indulge in a friend- ly " wrassle " as he is to sit down and debate the pres- ent economic situation of the United States. His sense of humor is as quick as the motions he makes NA ' hen fishing. Smith, though his nature is such a variable one, is by no means dilatory. He takes a job and carries it out; he can do things on his ov n initiative whenever necessary. He will make his mark in the Air, we know.

Washington, District of Columbia Eighth District, KentucLcy HERE IS the perfect student and efficient military man. Bill does all jobs alike, whatever their nature, whether he enjoys them or not,- in the same systematic and thorough manner. It took most of plebe year for him to get his mind off the automobile engines which were his hobby,- but as soon as he got around to his academic work in earnest, he promptly rose to the top of his class, where he remains today. He still retains his love for the mechanical, however, and in his unguarded moments may be caught rhapsodizing over a new type of crankshaft or worm gear. Not to be confined to one particular type of activity, he is an athlete of some impor- tance to the academy, having been on the track and cross-country teams for all four years.

" We honestly be- lieve, Hawk, that you are capable of sleeping through as mighty a tumult as can be created in this or another world. But if you take every task in life with the same attitude as you once to our recollec- tion took the area, then you will surely deserve all the sleep your nature craves. And if you put your all into the race of life as you did in the cross coun- try races through the hills of West Point there can be no doubt as to the result.

Not that Bellaire means anything to most of us, but Somey is an important personage in that particular podunk. And then, too, he rates pretty high with us. Beast Barracks didn ' t seem to hit him as hard as it did the rest of his fellow-sufferers. Why, he actually gained weight! Maybe it was because of the attitude he took. Not that he was exactly a humorist, but he was always saying things that made us smile. Four years have sobered him up a bit, but we are afraid the effect is only temporary. Somey is one of these natural born athletes. Good at everything and excels at nothing. He can get himself on and off more squads in one season than most of us can in four. This is due to the fact that he must have time for himself — to write letters. If all the kaydets had such winning ways and such big brown eyes, West Point would be a Blind Drag ' s Paradise. if r iT ff ■ Page Two Hundred Four ARNOLD SOMMER SprinsField Garden, New York Tenth District, New York WHEN we were writing the biography of an- other cadet in Arnold ' s Company, we com- pared his manner of living to a game of bridge. Now with the biography of Sommer to write, the appro- priateness of a game of pinochle cannot be denied. We will never forget the hours spent playing this game two-handed and usually two-fisted, with him, trying vainly to beat his game and bring him to a real- ization that we really could beat him occasionally. As we remember it, however, this didn ' t happen very often, and the result was that we spent more time than perhaps we should have in trying to invent ways to show him up. For some reason or other, this seems to sum up our attitude in the matter alto- gether. He ' s always better than we are, and the thing that worries us most is that he doesn ' t work a bit to get that way. Everybody wishes that he could be about like that and go through life with so much ease and excellence. - i||| Football (4-3.2.1), Basketb.il: (4-2)i Wrtsllina (4-3-2-1); Trad (4-3-2-1); Choir (4-3-2), Stars (4), Pistol Expert; y.M.C.A Council (1); Acting Corooral (3), Corporal (2), Caotain(l).

He takes a real pride, and verily a |ust pride, in his physical fitness and accomplishment. Still, for all that, Dan ' s collar has glittered with stars, and he has always stood up there with the best of them in things academic. No one-sided development, his. Perseverance, determination, and in- dependence — these are the key words to Dan ' s character. When Dan sets out to accomplish something, he accomplishes it ,and without recourse to others for aid or advice.

He defeated the Academic Board time and again, and has repulsed all efforts to dislodge him from the Class of 32.

RAY JAMES STECKER Hazleton, Pennsylvania Twelfth District, Pennsylvania RAY is so well known to all of us that anything said here can serve mere- ly to refresh the memories of those who might forget. Probably the most outstanding exponent in our class of the seldom followed " facta non verba, " we know him by those very deeds. hHis meteoric rise to football fame began second class year and he rounded off that term by becoming basketball captain. Being a yearling " make " he had to be transferred from " K " to the famous " C Company and there learned the lessons we had to teach him. Yet it didn ' t stop his methodical and silent manner of living. When June rolled around he took over the command of the com- pany and later in Beast Barracks won the rather ephemeral title of " hard- est man. " Never much for studying, he supplied his wives ith a marvel- ous example of how to get along and yet not spend one extra minute studying. Page Two Hundred Seven JOHN CHANDLER STEELE Washington, District of Columbia At Large HERE we have one of the hardest men in the Corps that is — he has the hardest exterior for the soft- est interior we know. The way he made those year- lings step in summer camp was a thing of joy, and yet somehow or other, the perpetual twinkle in his eye seemed to belie the fact that he wanted to haze any- one at all. M. I. T. claims the honor of having held this remarkable young fellow before he came here, and he did honor to his old alma-mater by ranking high in his class at the end of the second year. Johnny never seemed to want to break down and be a good fellow with the rest of us. But v e think that if he would his name would certainly be on the list of candidates for the most popular man in his class. Probably his work will bring him back here as a Tactical officer. The result will probably be extremely beneficial for the Corps of Cadets but our hearts are touched with sympathy for the first class bucks.

PRESTON STEELE Los Angeles, California At Large A FIERCE loyalty to California and to blondes, coupled with a philo- sophical belief that everything usually turns out for the best if left alone, characterizes " P ' s ' four years at West Point. An unkind remark on the virtue of the Golden State or a Golden hiead never fails to produce a volcanic outburst of wrath and statistics from this legionnaire. At times even the depreciating comment is unnecessary. His attitude toward trouble has enabled him to pursue a carefree course getting the maximum out of a minimum expenditure of worry and work. True, he has never worn stars, but his first sections are scattered through every year, and he has yet to root for a Goat football team. One year of chevrons appar- ently satisfied his yearning for files, and this last year we have known him as one of our elite — a First Class Buck. The Cavalry (non-motorized) is his choice of branch and he is praying for an assignment in " God s Country. a ■ ■ « ge Two Hundred Eight ■f STANLEY RONALD STEWART Kalamazoo, Michigan Third District, Michigan SCENE: GymndSium. Time: 4:30 to 5:30 on any week-day dfternoon. Enter Stewart: running frantically, he grabs rings and starts to swing. He yells at the same time, " Hey! I am going to do a fly away. " Enter Ford: He rushes over and attempts to stop Stewart as though preventing a contemplated suicide from his act. But he can not prevent the dare-devil, who continues to swing furiously, from his deed. Ford turns away and hides his eyes while Stewart, having rzached a terrifying height and speed, releases the rings. A thud resounds throughout the gymnasium and Ford, looking around rather appre- hensively, sees that he is safe. This is only the nine thousandth time that Stewart has done this without breaking his neck but Ford does not believe that the day will never come when he will break his neck. But leaving such a dangerous and thrilling question for the moment, we can still say that Stewart possess- es to a remarkable degree the qualities of courage and perseverance.

However, his four years at the Point have done him a world of good and he is almost over it now. Losing a southern accent isn t all that Al- bert has learned, however, for he was quick to pick up the spirit of West Point and from the start began to develop himself to be a competent officer. He is thorough and conscientious in everything he does. You feel quite confident that anything he starts will be well finished. We have had a hard time making a snake out of him, but the Virginia trip and summer camp did the trick. His first class year is marked with a definite rise in his hop attendance. Albert ' s amiable disposition, coupled with his military abilities, will carry him far in the service.

C. first arrived at West Point he was a bit disappointed. West Point did not engage in the old collegiate sport of debating, hie will argue on anything at any time. As a result, his class- mates, and such plebes he can corner, must bear the attack. In spite of this disappointment, J. C. rose to fame in yearling summer camp. As far as shooting is concerned, he should have stayed with debating, hie refused to go down in history as the worst pistol shot in the class, hie skillfully and scientifically coached his unsuspecting roommate to a worse score. After this burst of genius, many of us began to wonder from whence came this adroit person. Some be- lieved it was due to the fact that P ' . Echols xA as said to be his many times " Grand Pred. hHowever, his entire success can be laid to the fact that he pos- sesses an indomitable bearing gained in one of those institutions known as hHonor Schools. It is well that he has cultivated this bearing while he has been here for when J. C. goes into the F.

" Ed ' never takes his social obligations lightly, and in pursuing them he has created innumerable friendships by his pleasant manner and fine personality. As a football player " Ed " has earned for himself an enviable fame as a great tackle. The Corps and the Army owe to him a great indebtedness for many a football victory. He never carried the ball, but the Army man who did knew where to find a hole in the line. When it comes to handling men, Ed has, without doubt, real technique peculiar to himself. He has shown this to real advantage in capacity of Cadet Captain of L Company. We can ' t be far wrong when we predict for Ed a great career.

When a very small Plebe (about 185 pounds) he became an adept in the Long Sundt Yell and made many a long dreary afternoon bear- able with the well-known, but somewhat eerie, cry. Since then he has lost the art, so ' tis said, but the memory lingers on. He is a pacifist, himself, but was known back in the dim past of four years ago for his ability to rouse untold fierce First Classmen to hither- to unknown heights of fury with such little remarks as, " Sir, that was the way Danny told me to fix it. He had, you see, a brother, Danny, in that same First Class. He is sincere, good-natured — unless goaded unbearably — , and a good but not outspoken Chris- tian. He plays football in the fall, fences in the winter, and lacrosses in the spring.

" This we often hear of the Corps, but this June an important branch of that family is to be broken up. This is because Mrs. Sutherland has adopted most of " M " Company as " her boys, " and John has been adopted as a brother by most of the Corps. As a matter of fact this last relationship is really closer than that between many brothers of blood, because, manhandle him as you may, John never loses his temper, but always comes back for more. Although he may be a great big child in his playtime, still there is nothing childish in the way John handles his assignments that require ability and hard work. Even to mention his activities and accomplishments as a cadet would take more than this page, but any person who has seen him engaged in any one of these pursuits can appreciate that here is a man worth his weight in gold to any endeavor in v hich he is engaged.

GRAVES COLLINS TELLER Syracuse, New York New York FEW men who come to West Point can say that they have been offered a football scholarship by a " cit " college. Yet Graves is one of the few who can claim this distinction. Of course he refused the offer — he wanted to become a cavalryman, and no mere sport could change his determination. So, in due course of time, he climbed the long gray hill with the rest of us. Somehow, his football ability was never properly recognized here, for he severed rela- tions with the football squad during his plebe year. Very possibly a struggle with academics had some- thing to do with it, but at any rate, football no longer claimed his attention. However, by the time spring came ' round. Graves had put the enemy to rout, and he was free to turn his attentions to track, which has claimed him ever since. A very appreciative sense of humor and a decidedly pleasing smile have gained for him many friends. It is certain that Graves will make an excellent and popular officer. I| ROBERT HAYNES TERRILL Westminster, Massachusetts Third District, Massachusetts BOB came to us from Massachusetts, where Bar hiarbor is not Bar Har- bor; where puritanical instincts still predominate. He has lost neither the old New England accent nor his puritanical ideas. Ever cautious, ever thoughtful of others, he is a true son of Nev England. Life here was indeed a sudden change from his life at Worcester Tech as a Theta Chi, but he soon adapted himself to the new conditions of Beast Barracks and, in consequence, has sailed through his four years here with but few worries and no end of self-confidence. He has never found it necessary to spend many hours with his academics, even during the hard- est of the writs. " Early to bed " has been his maxim for the past four years. He is ever ready to help a friend with his boodle book, his last skag, or the unexpected blind drag. All in all, he is a real friend and a true wife. Page Two Hundred Twelve HERBERT BISHOP THATCHER Wa shin3ton, District of Columbia Hawaiian National Guard HEREIN we relate one of the most remarkable series of events that we can think of. Herb has worked hard every inch of his way through West Point and yet, at various times, he has been as low ranking and as high ranking as one can be. He drove and smashed and lobbed his way through to the captaincy of the tennis team. And it certainly is a pleasure to watch him at work and at play on the courts. Yearling Summer Camp saw him a high ranking " make, " but, somehow or other, his chev- rons disappeared for a space, and did not re-appear until after Beast Barracks, when he flashed into the sky as a Battalion Adjutant. The keynote of his character may be expressed as an ever present ambi- tion to realize the best things in life, and certainly to a great extent he has gotten the best out of his life at West Point. We wish we had known him better, because the knowledge that we have of his char- acter makes us all wish to be known as his friend.

Illinois may produce many crooks, but the town of Benton in that state managed to send us as straight- shooting a soldier as ever graced this Military Acad- emy. Moreover, Tommy is the possessor of the keenest sense of humor in the company. At meals it is a common sight to see the entire table roaring over his spontaneous wit. While he is one of the most exacting men in the company with the plebes, he cannot be serious long even in his hardest mo- ments, so his very corrections are flavored with that incomparable dry humor. One subject that has kept Tom really serious for four years has been that of academics.

Chicago, Illinois Senatorial, Illinois TO the majority, he is known as " Jim, " but to those intimate few, " Alice " is the cognomen to which he will answer. Yes, he blushes just as readily and as prettily as the name implies. Nevertheless Jim had lots of other attributes. When he wasn ' t jogging over hill and dale with the harriers, or running the mile, you were sure to find him pestering some Officer of the Air Corps. You guessed it. The air is taking this young man. The fact that he claims Chicago as his birthplace didn ' t stop him from doing things to the Academic Department. Even the Library found some use for him. All those dust-covered technical books were so much meat for Jimmy. An agreeable roommate, a fun loving man, a boodle hound, and above all a man gifted with a high sense of values and of right and wrong. That s Alice — the honor representative of " A " Company.

As early as Beast Barracks, he longed for the familiar sound of lead bullets sizzling by his ear and went out for the Pistol Team. He had not been at the academy long before his unusual excellence in academics was recognized. Twice during yearling fall he sat in conference with Col. Echols on matters of mathematical importance. Ever since then he has been conducting a course of instruction for members of the various academic departments.

Especially has Ken been our willing and exceedingly helpful comforter through the sore trials of Frog and its sister evil, " Spick.

WALTER MARQUIS TISDALE Niagara Falls, New York Fortieth District, New York SOME four years aso now, a cool breeze blew down from tfie north country, and when the excitement was over, there was Walt. There you have him better than I can describe him to you, although he is, and always will be, I hope, one of my best friends. hHe is cool, calm, and collected; hard to ruffle, always deciding the right thing at the right time, and always possessed of an astounding equanimity, hie has an extremely keen sense of values. After he got settled down he knew just what branch he wanted, and seeing — as some of us do not — just how hard one must study for it, he has worked exactly the right amount. In this way, he has created no enemies, aided himself, and has not hindered others. In an athletic way, he plays hockey. When he mixes in social life, he invari- ably drags keen.

He isn ' t so interested in academics — and " dis " is foreign to him. Above all he is cheerful, especially when eating. When he gets started everyone realizes why training tables are needed. . . . Either you eat your food or Trice does. He is a willing worker, and does the dirty work without any of the glory. You may expect to see him in the future with his shoulder to the wheel — a well-oiled cog in the Army machinery.

But withal Louis has a serious sense of duty, in proof of which we refer you to some of his impassioned appeals to potential Pointer adver- tisers. The fact that he has been able to take his rank seriously and still maintain the friendship of even the most indifferent bucks is the envy of most of us. A good dancer and a lover of music — Watson can t help but appeal to the femmes and rarely a week goes by that does not find him P.S.-ing. Truly ' twill be a lucky femme that leads Louis to the altar. Watson works hard and yet is always ready to help others. And if his work as advertising manager of the Pointer is any indication of his merit and ability, you can bet your best horse that he will be successful in life. t-w), »f ■ Howidtr (4-3.2.1)i Honor Com- miltee (1), Election Commiltec (1 ), Cross Countfv (1) Pistol E»pcrt, Corporal (2), Lieutenant (1).

HAROLD WALMSLEY Stamford, Connecticut Fourth District, Connecticut HIS face was serious,- his whole being was engrossed in what seemed to him an unsolvable enigma. For some ten more minutes he thought — then a slight smile crossed his solemn face, all seriousness disappeared, and he broke into jovial laughter. At last he saw through the joke that he has been told! Harold inherited the famous English slow-wittedness, but how he enjoys a joke when it is finally explained! Serious by nature, " Walms " has the prime requisite of a good soldier which, when considered in the light of his other favorable traits, predicts a successful career. It may be his love of nature, his desire for exercise, or merely a yearning for a contrast to his hours spent over a typewriter that takes Harold on cross-country jaunts through the hills. Whatever the reason, it was sufficient to inspire him to eclipse all records for cross- country and bring him the commendations of his commandant. Page Two Hundred Se venteen CHIH WANG Chanssha, China China A LTHOUGH by birth Chih Wans belongs to ' China, he is really a wanderer and citizen of the world at large. He is interested in everything and well informed on almost all subjects. When he doesn ' t know a thing he can usually make a good guess. Academically Chih never worries. He belongs to the famous house of hiero, Lincoln, and Wang, the pride of our class, hie wore stars for Plebe and Yearling years yet was the goat of his room. In section he takes things easily, specs only what appears necessary, and makes the instructors work. If ever a special case or trick problem is neglected, Chih is the first to attack it, and usually successfully. The proof of his merit is that in section room he seeks only knowledge, and not files. Out- side of academics Chih is a rare mixture of indif- ference and militariness. He is a good soldier and a conscientious one, but he stops there. Regardless of his athletic abilities he prefers red comforter, books, and the library to anymoreviolentrelaxations. f JOHN HENRY WEBER Germantown, Pennsylvania Seventh District, Ohio SPEAKING about going through West Point with an attitude of care- free nonchalance, this lad has certainly taken the prize — either corporeal or incorporeal. He has missed stars every year by the narrow- est of margins, and seems only to need a spark of desire to reach the ut- most heights. One of his outstanding claims for fame rests upon his ability to employ the famous British Science. We have actually seen him in the classroom delay the progress of that particular recitation for as much as half the period, all the time causing the instructor to believe that he was indulging in a bona fide attempt to pound knowledge into the heads of cadets. It is easy to long for an attitude toward life such as he possesses and it is probable that such an attitude will carry him along always as it has carried him here. Such a nature always promotes friendship, and this particular case is no exception to the rule. f 1 ' Page Two Hundred Eighteen BENJAMIN JEPSON WEBSTER Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii Hawaii WHEN he came from Prinalion in far off Hawaii there followed him, in the school year book, a title destined to remain with him throushout life. It was " the brown eyed lover. " In Honolulu the designation referred to the roles taken in amateur school theatricals. At West Point it fitted and he lived up to it by never refusing a blind drag. A noble man truly — who never refuses. But cer- tainly Benny has much to his credit. Four years of hard swimming ended with him as captain of the Army team, and the back stroke record of the Academy suffered untold numbers of times from his assaults. Benny has led many hard struggles while here. The first came when he was unable to use any of the shoes sold at the Cadet store. His paddle feet refused to slip into anything as narrow as a double D. So then on for four years the store was forced to place special orders for him. Nevertheless we all like him and his carefree nature and his innate but unassuming ability which certainly will carry him far. Soccer (4); Goat Football (1)j Gun Club (1); fishing Club, A.B.

It is a sight to warm the heart of one who believes in the old traditions to see him stand up an offending fourth classman and remind him of his duty in no uncertain terms, usually ending with an effective " you ' re gigged, d ' ya get it? " He was an able member of that famous yearling beast detail of 1929. But never let it be said that " Binks " was anything but genial and affable in his relations with his classmates. He paused in his singing only for two purposes: to tell a joke or to crawl a plebe. Lucky at love and cards do not go together according to the proverb. If that is true, he must certainly be unlucky at cards. Binks is easy to get along with, and he will always be well-liked wherever he goes. He can be assured of leaving friends in every post as he moves about in the service.

From the time Bus arrived on that memorable day in July, 1931, up to the day of graduation he has boned red comforter assiduously; yet, with all his apparent lassitude, he has stood very well in academics, and he ' s had his share of chevrons. Bus has never gone in much for the major sports — they require too much an expenditure of effort — but he is an all-around good man in the secondary sports, excelling with the " galloping dominoes, " in snaking, and above all, in boning fiction. Buster ' s idea of heaven, by the way, is to lie in the shade of Fort Clinton with a tin of " Luckies " nearby and a stack of " adventure " magazines within easy reach. Ah blissi Beneath all that outward appearance of casual indifference, however, that Bus has cultivated by years of studied endeavor, there lurks a calm, complacent competence.

Lake Cfiarles, Louisiana Seventh District, Louisiana THE Pointer would be very de-pepped indeed to lose from its staff the name of this debonair young artist. His sketches have graced its pages as long as we can remember and have never failed to impress us with his ability. In " C " company we can not say that we know him very well, because he came to us only at the beginning of second class year. The Virginia Trip gave us all a chance to become better acquainted with him, and he certainly became well acquainted with " Virginia. ' This omits entirely any mention of the remarkable incident between our subject and the dashing young ensign aboard the U.S.S. Arizona. After the smart, well-groomed officer had dragged us through all manner of unbelievable and impossible interstices Williams was ready to wish himself all the things the Annapolite lead accused him of being, and some more besides. : T ▼ T T T T T T 8 ■ Pase Two Hundred Twenty-one MERLE R. WILLIAMS Fallon, Nevada Senatorial Nevada WILLIE ' advanced on West Point four years ago, fresh from tfie wild and woolly west — namely, Nevada (not Nevawda, incidentally). Today he is not so wild; not so woolly. West Point and the years have v rought wondrous changes. We will remember him as one of the runts of runts. Two years as number four, last squad, second platoon, F Company prove the point. Despite an apparently carefree and at times suspiciously indifferent nature, the tactical department and the academic department have refused to be bluffed and have kept him not only out of the goats but as well a " make. " True, he was a second class buck, but this last year has seen him beautifully enhanced with a pair of golden chevrons. In his quest for romance, he has recog- nized no boundaries. North, south, east, and west number his fans. Alas and alack, Jersey has won out over all the rest, and when the propitious mo- ment arrives there will doubtless be an air wedding, for the air is to be his branch, " h appy landings.

Charleston, South Carolina First District, South Carolina WE hear about Southern greatness, but some of us were inclined to be a little cynical — until we knew Lock Williams. Beyond question, his most outstanding quality is a deep, underlying consideration for others, a sincere helpfulness that makes all his classmates his friends. But let no man try to take advantage of this quiet-mannered Carolinian where his duty is concerned. His is the soldier ' s code, as exemplified by the first word of West Point ' s motto. When a good time is to be had, you can ' t find a better companion th an Lock,- when a job is to be done, you II look far before you ' ll find a more efficient executive. Such a combination of qualities cannot fail to help an Army officer. Lock Williams is well prepared for his career.

One of these inscrutable peo- ple that somehoNA give the impression of having been places and done things. That was what we thought back in the dim past when we were plebes,- prolonged and arduous efforts to elicit more information on the subject have served to confirm our suspicions , but have not pro- duced anything definite. During his career as a cadet Sam has busied himself in a wide field of activities, ranging from performing involved gy- rations on the parallel bars to directing the dancing chorus for the h un- dredth Night Show. Sam s ambition is to be a General some day, and if an almost Prussian state of military efficiency be any indication, he has gotten off to a good start. Sam ' s virtues are too numerous to discuss here, his besetting vices are his weakness for the femmes in cigarette ads, and a fiendish joy in detecting split infinitives in official documents. .

And from what " D " Company has to say about the matter, they have nothing that can equal it. Torgils is the first and least unpronounceable of his two first names, and Grimkel is the next. The com- bination of the two makes it difficult to call this man anything but Wold. He and Gil Adams have been school mates for many years and know all of the ropes when it comes to military affairs. He also does a great many other things in the line of sports and seems to do all of them exceedingly well. Grimkel at any rate takes his women, his song, and his grape- juice all with a quasi-indifference that belies his deep interest in all things that are worth doing well.

FREDERICK RALEIGH YOUNG Fort Thomas, Kentucky At Large AT the very first, in Beast Barracks, the name of Young became the hall- mark of correctness and he has never yet let the colors droop. He started out with what is usually called ' suck " with the First Class, marked academic ability, a spoony appearance, and, above all, the good will of his classmates, and ended up with stars, chevrons, and about everything desirable that can be obtained at West Point. In the way of athletics he has been on the golf team for three years, plays an almost flawless game of tennis, knows a good deal about soccer, and gives the appearance of hav- ing webbed feet when turned loose near large bodies of water. He is rumored to be in love, he speaks Spanish with a sort of Greekish accent, and he doesn ' t leave an enemy at the Academy. Could you ask for any- thing further?

KENNETH FREDERICK ZITZMAN RidseField Park, New Jersey Senatorial, New Jersey OLD Kenny came to us with all the ideas of a brilliant career in his head. He jumped right into stardom from the very beginning and he has remained in the dust thereof for the remaining four years. The combination of Kenny Zitzman and Chip Lavigne was so far famed in summer camp that people used to gather from miles around to view their antics. And yet at the end of summer camp when Sergeant Zitzman blazed forth in a glory of chevrons and Chip Lavigne bowed his head in an agony of shame, all was not lost for they had already agreed to become roommates for the ensuing year. So they carried through with all the power and force that could be the only result of such a combination. At any rate they wound up as they had begun — taking things in an ultra cheerful manner and here is hoping that both will continue in the same mood throughout their Army careers. ge Two Huntdred Twenty-six II BRUCE MARION MITCHELL " I cannot say and I will not say That he is dead — he is just away. With a cheery smile and a wave oF his hand He vanished into an unknown land. " THREE years have passed and we all have chansed — except " Mitch. " We still remember him as a plebe, always friendly and cheerful. The dark days of plebedom were made more bearable by his pres- ence and because of his ability to brins a smile where it was most needed we will always re- member him. Ordinarily, men of serious turns of mind are totally serious, but not Bruce. He had the happy faculty of knowing when to be serious and when not to be. In short, he had the power of distinguishing between things important and things trivial. It was indeed a sad day when " Mitch s untimely death cut short his promising career. The army lost an admirable officer, and we lost a true friend, but the long gray line gained a real man. DONALD FRANCIS MULCAHY Massachusetts National Guard Boston, Massachusetts DON MULCAHY,- the name brings a rush of memories and a tighten- ing of the throat. Memories that bring also the age-old rebellious query " Why " ? The grim reaper seems so often to harvest prematurely. A most refreshing personality, Don, characterized by a ready smile and a broad Boston accent. His merry disposition and ready wit won him a place in our hearts in the short time we were privileged to know him. Don combined with personality and ability a natural intelligence and an active mind. He ranked high without the drudgery so often attendant on scholastic attainment. In the spring came his long illness. A sick leave during yearling summer camp followed. He returned in August, seemingly recovered. Then suddenly he was gone, leaving us stunned and unbelieving. But he is not gone. He has but preceded us, a wor- thy comrade in the long line.

From day to day we inquired as to his well-being, and each time the doctors were less encouraging than on the night before. Finally we almost abandoned hope. But even we who knew him so well underestimated Wally ' s will to conquer. He came back from Death ' s door — emaciated and tired but victorious — and we gloried in his triumph. Wally, we shall meet again! JOSEPH E. WILLIAMSON Sixth District, South Carolina lOE is one of those rare persons who never lets his feelings influence his actions. Reserved, controlled, cool-thinking, never doing anything in haste, he is a man whom everyone admires and honors as a true gentleman. No man could be more desirable as a roommate, and that is about the highest praise a cadet can give to another man. The fortitude and courage of a true soldier is a quality that is Joe ' s by nature as he has proved many times. A battle is never lost until one believes himself defeated and Joe never admits defeat. He is fighting his greatest battle now; the battle for health. We, his classmates through nearly four years of comradeship, are sure that he will win and fulfill his desire to graduate. We have lost him from the rolls of our class, but through the years to come, he will remain in our hearts and in our thoughts, our classmate. CHARLES V. R. WYNNE Readins, Pennsylvania Fourteenth District, Pennsylvania FHARLIE, the boy from Reading, constant chaser of gloom, - and source of unexcelled wit, has been quite conspicu- ous by his absence this last year. The Pointer lost its best Sport Editor in years, the fencing team suffers for lack of a manager and the academic department misses the warm fight for tenths that Charlie always gave them. They almost got him once but in the book of fates it was not written that Chem should take him from us. A breakdown in health, Fitzsimons FHospital and sick leave until he joins the class of ' 33 next fall, did the trick. Although Charlie ' s name is added to the roll of ' 33 we feel certain that, at heart, he will alv ays belong to ' 32. We know that we II always think of him as classmate.

The process of instilling into a group of young mentfie soldierly qualities for wfiich West Point is famous is naturally a somewhat violent process. There is a certain amount of pressure needed. We met both for the first time in Beast Barracks. The acquaintanceship grew as they accompanied us on the Plebe h ike. It rained. Academics came and the twins were in every section. Plebe Christ- mas rolled around, and the Tactical Department violently resented our ideas of relaxation with thirty slugs. We thought we had escaped them when Recognition came, but that delusion did not last long. Academics again — Descript and twenty-five men found — pressure caught up with us! Yearling Christ- mas and return — the bitter with the sweet! We went on Furlough to the chanting of the ancient for- mula, " But not for me, Sir! " We returned with the traditional world-weariness. We became Corps and searched in vain for Second Class deadbeat. We went on another Christmas Leave — not so eagerly as before. And then one morning we awoke to find ourselves the First Class — upholders of tradition and an- cient custom. We departed for Virginia, flew aeroplanes, fired Artillery, and explored Phoebus. We returned to the last Camp, another Beast Barracks, to watch the old fight for files, to ride with the Cavalry, to work with the Artillery, and to sweat with the Infantry. Then came the last siege of Academics, the last football season. We went on another Christmas Leave and returned to wait for June. That is the bare chronicle of events. A hundred classes before have experienced the like. Count- less classes after us will go through it all again. We have seen Army teams humble FTarvard and Vale on successive Saturdays, sink the Navy, and lick Notre Dame. Those were times of pride and exultation. We have seen the same teams defeated, and tried not to let it matter too much. We have been disciplined v ith slugs, demos, and cons. We have had our best friends turned out and found. The Tactical and Academic Departments have afflicted us as the Seven Plagues afflicted Pharaoh. We have watched classmates succeed in studies and sport. We have marched behind rumbling caissons bearing flag draped caskets to the muffled beat of drums. Our history contains so many events. Trophy Point with the sinking sun coloring river and sky — Cullum balcony with a silver moon lighting the dark FHudson — the choir singing the Corps. All these things have molded us as well as the more definite efforts of books and drills. These dre West Point as well as the other, and no class history can go beyond the Academy. hiistory is essentially a narrative of change in a previously existing order. As the change has been in the man, so the history is in the man — in the character and soul of everyone of us. So — On June the Fourth at Battle Monument, there will be on Public View, the History of the Class of 1932 in 263 volumes.

Few buildings in this country are richer in tradition or more intimately connected with the names oF our military Forbears. The Acad- emy outgrew the building so it was moved stone by stone to a place in the Cadet Cemetery where it stands as a monument to our honored dead and as a reminder to the Corps oF the long grey line that stretches back to the Founda- tion days oF our government. Page Two Hundred Seventy-six . FIRST ARMY AND NAVY FOOTBALL GAME IN the memory of graduates is the time when Cadets were ' given demerits for tossing a ball within the limits of camp. It was only because the son of an old and influential professor asked permission to keep a football that organized athletics were ever allowed at the Academy. With the formation of a football team It was only natural that we should soon play j ■ our logical rival, the Navy. So began in 1890 a long series { of games that have meant a great deal to the Corps.

Page Two Hundred Eighty-two ' @ t ' ' FOOTBALL ■f i -f -f i T ' l MAJOR R. I. SASSE Codch PRICE Cdptdin 1 Page Two Hundred Eighty-four 41 Ill THE A ' SQUAD FOOTBALL OHIO NORTHERN VARIOUS speculations were made throughout the pre-season concernins the weaknesses of the Army eleven, hlowever, when Major Sasse launched his " Big Team " into the season of 31 against the plucky but greatly inferior Ohioans it showed such skill and strength in all phases of the game that no doubt remained regarding a successful season ahead. With the forward wall tearing huge holes through Ohio ' s line, the veteran Army backs kept up a steady parade towards the opponent ' s goal. Nor could the substitute Army lineups which replaced the first string after the end of the opening quarter be stopped. They continued the onslaught until at the final whistle the score board registered a 60 to victory. KNOX COLLEGE The diminutive Knox squad, although unable to stop the heavier attack of the Army, made an excel- lent display of tricky football coupled with plenty of pluck and grit. Throughout the game it fought vainly but unflinchingl y to stem the Army bombardment. RESULTS OF THE SEASON Army 60 Ohio Northern 67 Knox College 20 Michigan State 13 Harvard 6 Yale 27 Colorado College 20 Opponents .. 7 ... 14 ... 6 ... 296 .

In the three remaining periods the second team carried on the drive, almost every play working perfectly. MICHIGAN STATE The experience gained in the two preced- ing games together with much diligent work had smoothed the Army attack and strength- ened its defense to such an extent that Michigan State found itself confronted by a much different team than the rumored " set-up. " After finding the " Spartan " line too staunch to penetrate for any appreciable gains, Army took to the air for its advances. Twice in the second period Ken Fields tossed touchdown passes. Army ' s third tally came after Jack Price had intercepted a Spartan pass and had laboriously advanced to the 10 yard line. Monnett was by far the outstanding member of the opposing outfit. It was he who, on a perfect play, charged 65 yards for their lone touchdown. Between two strong, evenly matched teams, it was truly a battle of blood and thunder; the Army victory resulting from more aggressiveness and alertness. HARVARD After recuperating from the bruises and batterings gathered in the Spartan tussle, the team again set seriously to work in anticipation of an ever harder tussle with the Crimson. And it appeared as game time drew near that there would be but Pd3e Two Hundred Eighty-six II STECKER STARTS ON AN EXTENDED JAUNT little difficulty in counting up another Army victory against them. Before the savage Army attack, the oppo- nents staggered and yielded. By passes and long drives, with the line assisting by opening great holes and entirely downing the secondary defense, the Army backs marched steadily from midfield across the Crimson goal. When Stecker missed the extra point, nobody realized of what im- portance that little slip was. Nor later, when Army made another triumphant march dow nfield did there seem any possibility that a single point would decide the game. When the hiarvard eleven gathered in huddle between the first two periods, they discovered a certain Barry Wood in their midst and to him they entrusted the job of drawing the game from the fire. And re- markably well he did it. During a succes- sion of brilliant plays, he twice hurled long passes, both leading to touchdoNA ns; and twice he added the extra point, once by a kick, the other by a dash around end. Truly a great hHarvard team was born that afternoon, and as truly, most of the credit goes to Wood. YALE Within the space of a minute and a half at the start of the fourth period the tv o touchdowns of the game were scored. Unfortunately, one of them v as by Yale. Before those tallies were made, the game had been more or less dull and drab, both teams exerting every effort to gain a slight advantage but neither succeeding in pene- trating the marvelous defense of the other, hlowever, as the end of the third quarter drev near, Army as though suddenly in- spired by some commanding power, started i Page Two Hundred Eighty-seven i " STECKER RETURNS AN INTERCEPTED PASS a tremendous drive From its own 27 yard line. Nothing but a touchdown could stop their advance. X hen Stecker slid off Yale ' s left-tackle to cross Yale ' s goal Army received its reward. hHardly had the turmoil in the stands sub- sided when Parker, Yale ' s quarter-back, after receiving the ensuing kick-off tucked the ball under his arm and raced the full length of the field behind an avalanche of Yale blockers for a compensating score. COLORADO COLLEGE Carrying on after the tragic accident at Yale in the preceding week. Army did its part to disperse the cloud of gloom which hung over the Corps by overwhelming Colorado, 27 to 0. The game, although hard fought, ' •Nas more or less merely a good vv ' orkout for at no time was the Army goal threatened. With a few exceptions, reserves v ere used during the greater part of the conflict in order that the first string might have a much needed rest. hHowever, the Army showed its usual prowess. PITT Sixty-five thousand people huddled in the mist-covered stadium to watch Pitt pass its way through the haze to a 26 to vic- tory. When the Panthers launched their run- ning attack against the powerful Army wall. Jack Price and his comrades fought back with such a fury that not an inch could be gained through them. Man for man the teams were evenly matched, and neither was able to gain by overland tactics. Such a state did not continue long however, for Pitt, when finding itself stopped, pulled a 1 Page Two Hundred Eighty-eight m -iWfYg¥ii1if ' l ' UfM: iHk a i xs ' " ;«aw . it h A PLAY THAI IHt ■IBISH DID NOl ' jIUP superb aerial attack out of the bag and hurled it with vengeance against the Army defense. Irrespective of the score and the dope sheet with the sad story of first downs, etc., the Army played a marvelous brand of hard fighting ball, their only weakness being in pass defense. LOUISIANA STATE Army got more than they expected when they played L. S. U. A victory, yes! Stecker scored the first touchdown; then Johnson intercepted a pass and ran eighty yards for the second. For the third. Army marched downfield when Tom Kilday found an opening, and that settled any possible doubt as to the outcome. The game was interesting but after it was definitely in the bag for Army the " Kaydets in the stands had their attention drawn elsewhere. Their eyes were glued on the eastern stands. It was great and we hope L. S. U. will come again — cheer leaders, band, and all. URSINUS Contrary to advance indications. Army did not start its regular lineup, and at no time had its first team on the field intact. owever, the same spirit pervaded the whole squad, and regardless of what play- ers were in at any particular time the drive went on as usual. Nothing could stop Army that day as is indicated by the 54-0 score. NOTRE DAME Without a doubt, Notre Dame truly exem- plified the spirit and ability of a gallant Army team; a team beaten by hiarvard, tied by Vale, and drubbed by Pitt; a team that 3 Pdge Tw o Hundred Eighty-nine ■■ALBIE " STOPPED AT THE LINE could forget the past and raise itself to the heights of football glory. Throughout the game, Army employed a type of defense that was impenetrable. The " Irish " backs were constantly bowled over by the hard rushing, fierce tackling Army line before they could even reach the line of scrimmage. When perchance, Marchy Schwartz or one of his cohorts broke through the line they were soon smothered by the secondary. Few will ever forget the line support of Kilday, Stecker and Brov n. Army scored late in the first period on a deceptive and well executed play. Brown in kick format ion on the third down, faked a punt and threw a 35 yard pass to Stecker who behind brilliant interference dashed to Notre Dame ' s 7 yard line. A rush by Stecker and two plunges by Tom Kilday carried the ball over for Army ' s first touch- down. The second and third periods were stubbornly fought, with the Army defense constantly repelling the Notre Dame attack. Finally, in the early part of the fourth quar- ter, with the ball on our 33 yard line, Carver called on Stecker for a cut back over Kurth, Notre Dame ' s prospective All- American tackle. The ball was snapped, Kurth was pushed out of the play and Stecker raced sixty-six yards to write Army ' s name again in football history. Rosy Carver put Army through its tricks that day with as brilliant an exhibition of generalship as the Yankee Stadium has ever seen. On that evening Major Ralph I. Sasse was the happiest man in the United States Army — and who will say him nay. Page Two Hundred Ninety :l JOHNSON, P. E. THE COACHINiJ STAFF NAVy Football tradition has been always a great reservoir of fighting spirit; a reservoir of tfiat spirit wfiich fias inspired teams to tfieir utmost on the fields of friendly strife. And it was from that source that the Navy drew its inspiration when it confronted Army. At the outset, the Army team found itself balked by a Navy defense almost as impos- sible as that of Pitt or Notre Dame, and it is true it had to summon every ounce of power to break that defense, hlowever, came the second period, and then once the Army attack began to click the game took pn a different aspect. A score for the land lubbers " seemed inevitable. Nevertheless, Navy was not so easily beaten as that. They held deep in their territory and kicked out of danger. Again the same process was repeated; Navy held on its eight yard line, hlowever, before Army relinquished the ball Brown sent a placement kick across the bar from the 16 yard line for a three point advantage. Later in the same period Eddie Herb drove the ball over for a touchdown after a Fields-Kopsak pass had placed it on the one yard mark. In the second half. Navy came back with sufficient fight to net them a score and put them back in the running, hlowever, soon again their hopes faded as Stecker, the man who beat them in 1930 by a sensational run, began dashing with abandon around their ends and off their tackles to lead Army to another score. Navy ' s Chinese Victory Bell has not been rung in eleven years — you glorious Army teams of a future day— may it never ring again. LINCOLN, L. J. Page Two Hundred Ninety-one nil THE " B SQUAD " C " SQUAD BEGINNING with what appeared to be a dearth of good football material, the plebe coaching staff after much delinquent work whipped into shape a remarkably smooth running eleven which com- pleted its entire season without once having its goal crossed. Although their opponents as a whole offered little resistance, the fact remains that at times the plebes were pressed hard with their backs close to their ovs n goal. Besides for the ease with which they ran up huge scores on their victims, they de- serve much credit for the excellent spirit displayed and the Fight and energy they put into their games. Throughout the whole season, irrespective of the quality of opposition they met, they entered their frays with a whole-hearted earnestness and a firm determination to give everything they had. With few exceptions the men were absolutely green at the beginning of the season. As a result of this lack of experience, there were, of course, from time to time rather glaring mistakes and exhibitions of poor football. However, as the season wore on, the men overcame their faults with marvelous rapid- ity until towards the end only extremely minor defects could be detected in their play. There were but few spectacular instances of individual brilliance but at all times there was that evenness and steadiness throughout the squad which developed into the keynote of their attack and defense. The plebes started off their schedule v ith Perkiomen, but perhaps because of nervousness and lack of experience at playing together they could scarcely get their scoring power into action. Nevertheless they managed to grind out a 13-0 victory. Then followed two games which proved true examples of real Army scoring — those with Riverside Military Academy and Mackenzie. In the former the plebes rolled up 52 points and in the latter 79. Almost every play used netted a tremendous gain irrespective of what player happened to be running the ball, all of which speaks remarkably well for the linemen. The Valley Forge Military Academy and the Dean games capped the season and were by far the hardest fought and most interesting of all. Surely, on a squad that went through a season with such an enviable record there must be found plenty of good varsity material for next year.

Although Captain Stecker and hHerb were still on the football field, rapid progress was made. With the addition of Stecker and Herb after Christmas, a well coordinated team composed of Epier at center, Besson and Stecker at the forward positions, and Hillis and Abell at guards took the floor against McGill of Toronto a week after school began. With Neely, Northam, Herb, and Adams in reserve, prospects were particularly bright for a winning Army basketball team. Army opened up the season with an easy victory over McGill University, the Canadians being forced to take the short end of the count to the tune of 38 to 1 8. Three more victories followed. A strong Johns Hopkins team was defeated 35 to 27. Duke University followed and though proving to be a stubborn foe.

The lead see-sawed back and forth throughout the entire game. Army gained a five point lead, but in the last five minutes this margin was cut down to two, the final difference that separated these two evenly matched teams. Lehigh was the next victim, going down before a fierce Army onslaught 43 to 23. The local support of the Corps of Cadets seems to be an indispensable quantity as far as the athletic teams representing the United States Military Academy are concerned. Knowing that the Corps is behind them is not enough. Time and again a team un- accompanied by the Corps has departed from the Point with every possibility of victory only to return with the short end of a score. No sport is an exception. The basketball team succumbed to tradition when a bat- tling University of Pennsylvania team took our boys into camp in the beautiful Palestra in Philadelphia. With due deference to the skill of our worthy foe, the Army was un- able to shake off the jinx and fell 23 to 18. Returning to its own stamping ground, the Army team carried the fight to a spunky U. S. Coast Guard five and handed them a 36-25 defeat. A fighting but ineffective Georgetown team fared no better the fol- lowing Saturday,- the Washington lads re- turning home with a 26-19 defeat. Colum- bia snapped the winning streak again the next Wednesday. With Epier unable to 1 r Page Two Hundred Ninety-six 11! 1 ADAMS, G, N JABLONSKY EPLER GOES INTO THE AIR rind the hoop and Stecker ' s spectacular overhand shots bounding off the rim, the Army had its big guns spiked and went down fighting valiantly 32-24. A strong Colgate team, reputed to be one of the best in the East, fell before an Army barrage 31-20. On this occasion Army displayed a sparkling passing attack and a deadly ac- curacy on the hoop. Flashes of the same attack were evident at various times through- out the season but never for any length of time. Dartmouth, one of the strongest teams in the Eastern Intercollegiate League, sent the Army home with another defeat, this time 28-16. The trip jinx was not broken. Penn State visited the Academy the follow- ing Wednesday, and Army managed to break into the winning column again with a 46-37 triumph. The game was exception- ally clean and hard fought throughout; one of the best of the season on the home court. The Amherst game was decided in an extra period. Army finally eking out a 30-28 victory. Coach Novak played his second string until well along in the first period. When the regulars took the floor, they trailed along behind the visitors until the last two minutes when Stecker sank two free throws, and Hillis and Besson each made one goal from the floor. Creighton came out of the West with a team that played up to its excellent reputa- Jl Page Two Hundred Ninety-seven X M. ■ ' ■» r BURLINGAME A BAD SPOT FOR THE ARMY tion. Although the visitors led throughout most of the game, they did not gain what might be called a comfortable lead until the last few minutes of play. One of the fea- tures of the game was the work of Creigh- ton ' s six foot-eight center. Although the final score of 39-32 might not indicate it, the Army proved itself a very formidable foe by scoring as many from the field as Creighton. The last game of the season was played at South Bend, Indiana, against our ancient rival, Notre Dame. Unfortunately, Captain Stecker and his cohorts were unable to re- peat their success on the gridiron and fell before a revengeful Irish team. The final gun at Notre Dame officially com- pleted the Army basketball season of 1932, and at the same time spelled finish for the careers of Stecker, Abell, Besson, and Adams. The summary of the season ' s games shows ten victories to five defeats, with vic- tories over such outstanding teams as Col- gate, Duke, West Virginia, and Penn State. Despite the loss of four men from this year ' s team, Coach Novak will have Captain- elect Epier, Herb, and Hillis around which to build a strong team for 1933. In addition there are Neely, Northam, and Kenerick, all of whom gained a great deal of experience this year. Stancook of this year ' s Plebe team, is about the best of the cagers from the Class of ' 35. All in all, prospects are bright for a winning combination in 1933.

The second class produced several good candidates and the strong Plebe team, now Yearlings, fitted in nicely, so that by the openin:; game there was a smooth-working combination. All during the month of February, the men were working in the basement of the gymnasium, attempt ing to make their stick work as near perfect as possible. Then came March and rain and cold winds but the squad went out on the plain to practice more stick work and that team work which is so necessar to success in Lacrosse. The opening encounter on March 28th was with Lafayette and Army functioned quite well, piling up ten goals while the Visitors had to be content with none. Army still showed evidences of lack of polish but they played remarkably well for their first contest of the year. The second game with the New York University Twelve was exciting and hard-fought.

Call found that the goalie ' s one weakness was a high shot and capitalized by putting in two of the Cadets ' five points. N. Y. U. tallied once. The following Saturday a team from Bos- ton University came up to meet this strong Army team. The second and third string men were used almost exclusively and still, when the final whistle blew, the score was 35-0 in favor of our black and gold hel- meted players. It was Boston University ' s first venture into the game of Lacrosse and, though they played well, the Army substi- tutes appeared to be on their very best game and made many difficult shots. Flashing a beautiful passing attack and with the substitutes playing as smoothly as the first string. Army continued her unbeaten path by trouncing Colgate the following week-end 17-1. The play was fast and furious but the Cadet sharpshooters were unstoppable and most of the attempts on the Colgate net were terminated successfully. The following week-end the Squad jour- neyed to Boston to play a strong hHarvard team. Brady on the close attack ran wild to score five goals. Each time he slipped down the right side of the field and cleverly dodged his way to the goal to make one of his famous left-handed flips. Under such inspired leadership there was no denying the Cadet team and when play ended, Army was the victor 11-4. It was an un- usually clean game and there were no in- juries of any kind. The Cadets returned home to play Union and in this game Coach Touchstone tried Page Three Hundred Two E l HIH HHc v ' aJI B B I B H k • J ilARTINU -Ok A S(._Ok;t SIMENSON, E. G. out his system of playins two teams — each one working for a quarter and then resting for a like period. He was able to do tfiis because of the wealth of material, especially among the midfield candidates where en- durance is necessary. The two combina- tions made a total of 13 goals and Union was unable to score a single time. Sheri- dan made several difficult shots from the first attack position to lead the scoring. Swarthmore was next in line and they brought up one of the strongest teams they have had in years. It was the hardest fought game of the season up to that date and Army played valiantly to count four times while holding the visi tors scoreless. A feature of the game was the playing of Cadet Douglas against his younger brother, who played the opposite position on the Swarthmore Twelve. Incidentally, Douglas scored the first goal for Army after a neat pass from Darcy. On a clear day in the middle of May came the season s climax against Johns hHop- kins. It was a bitterly fought contest with the play fast and dazzling. The enemy athletes were marvels at stick-handling and body-checking and they succeeded in scoring four times. Army took more shots than did the hlopkins team but made only one net- ting. The enemy goalie made several sen- sational stops and had any one of them slip- ped by the complexion of the game might have changed considerably. Johns Hopkins has always been the Army nemesis in Lacrosse and if the Cadets aspira- tions for the title of Olympic representative of the United States for this summer are ful- filled they must defeat this clever Baltimore Page Three Hundred Three THE ARMY JUST MISSED THIS ONE team. In the 1928 Olympic tryouts, they nosed out a sreat Army team in the Finals 3-2 after the Cadets had defeated them decisively earlier in the season. This year the play-off will be held about June 15th with the eight leading amateur teams com- peting. After their first defeat Army Finished out the season with two fairly easy victories. Penn State went home on the short end of a 10-2 score after a fierce battle against a superior Cadet Twelve. Then Army wound up the season with an enjoyable trip to hHanover to play Dartmouth on Memorial Day. The black and gold stickmen were in fine fettle and the graduates-to-be finished their playing days by a glorious victory over a fine team. The Green team was held score- less while the Army attack was piling up an impressive total of 12 markers. The season was a decided succcess with the Army winning nine of ten games and making the astounding total of 118 goals while holding the opposition to 12. All this speaks well For the offense headed by Brady with 14 goals. This clever attack man played the corner of the enemy net and was a constant source of worry to the opposing goalie. hHe was a cool-headed veteran and his abilities will be missed. The defense, too, underCaptainZimmerman s direction performed nobly. Summerfelt was the defensive find of the year and Simenson was a fitting mate. hHetherington also fitted in beautifully when needed. Waters did a wonderful job of goal-tending. In the midfield there were a dozen excellent per- formers, but Captain McBride, Darcy, Pot- tenger, and Quinn were the cleverest.

After several games with this combination it had to be discarded as impractical, Schorr re- turning to his old berth at second base, where he continued to " scoop em up with the best of them — as near perfect a fielder as there is on the squad. Dreyer and Farnsworth returned to shortstop and third base, respectively, where the combination once again thrilled the stands — Dreyer with his miraculous stops followed by the approved " Dreyer off-balance throw-out " to first base. At the same time, Farns- worth continued his former habit of making incredible spears at the liners which came along the third base line. The " find " of the season was Fuqua, who filled with complete success the left field berth and the position in the batting order left by Lindquist.

The remaining outfield position was filled for most of the season by Daniel, a newcomer in the regular varsity line-up, but a seasoned hand at catching the ones that came to him deep in center field. At all times a cool player, his coolness was never more apparent than when at bat. On special occasions, he lifted flies on the steps of Cullum with little or no effort. Through- out the many attempted changes in all other positions Powel remained in constant occu- pation of first base. For two years now, he has handled the " throv -overs " with a minimum of errors. Many a first base genius in the Corps remains unacclaimed, just be- cause Powel ' s play has been too smooth for any competition. Furthermore, he was first in the batting order, in which position he was forced to " wait out ' a majority of times. Although he v as usually " passed, " he showed by his hitting, when so instruct- ed, that he could get on base by other ways. hloy, the captain and veteran catcher, in spite of an occasional relapse, continued to be the team ' s most consistent player; he could " catch up ' the most tempermental of Army ' s string of pitchers and could hit the most versatile of the opponent ' s twirlers. The pitching staff, composed of Cough- lin, Landry, Number, Tieman, Fields, and Adamson, promised to be an excellent one, . Hy l SH Page Three Hundred Eight 9 V M - .. " 5 f ' " - LANDRY BRINGS IN A SCORE but the credit for the same work falls almost entirely on Coughlin and Landry. Coushlin did a great part of the starting work and most of the relief work, and he did both well. As a result, when he wasn ' t in the box pitching he could usually be found in the " bull pen " warming up. The remainder of the pitching staff did their best work in practice — Tiemann ' s ability,one of the bright prospects of the early season, remaining un- developed due to a lack of control. In the meantime, the batting which seemed so promising in the 1930 season slumped bad- ly, Fuqua, Farnsworth, and Hoy being the only regular hitters. The fact is no season in which almost as many games were lost as won can be called highly successful, and we lost eight out of fifteen starts, two of these being non-colle- giate games against the Giants and Yankees. Three games were called because of rain. Several early starts, such as Haverford, Swarthmore, and Bucknell, gave the team insufficient practice to cope with the greater perfection of N. Y. U., Colgate, and Ford- ham. Landry pitched a 4 to 1 defeat by Penn State, a defeat caused by the team ' s poor batting and the inability to overcome a small lead in the early innings of the game. Both of these difficulties account for much of the season ' s poor ball. Colgate s 19 to 1 victory marked a new low in West Point baseball. The team played about as II 9 r s $ Page Three Hundred Nine 9 I I A CLOSE DECISION poorly as conceivable asainst a strong Col- gate team. This deFeat, as well as other disappointments of the season, was re- deemed in a large measure by the team s intelligent and coordinated play against the Giants, Maryland, and N. Y. U. The per- formance in these games showed that the team was capable of doing all the things expected of them in the earlier season. The " C " Squad, while not developing a great many candidates for the next years varsity, has contributed a few outstanding players who will certainly fill in the holes left by Graduation next spring, if not this Spring. The team ' s fielding was, as always, much superior to its batting. McEntee on first and O Neil at shortstop, gave promise of future usefulness in the field. Brown caught behind the plate and gave every evidence of being the " find " who would be useful to the squad in future years, hlis work behind the plate showed self-assur- ance and aggressiveness, and his throw to second was a marvel. Davis and Craig shared the pitching work and, towards the latter part of the season, did very well. Brown, who led the batting, as usually able to hit at will. McEntee ran him a close second.

The prob- lem of replacing Lermond and Lucket was the hardest of all, but, as the season progressed, men were found to fill their shoes. When the team left for the Penn Relays, their chances for success were anticipated to be only moder- ate, but by the end of the meet a national championship, and numerous individual places, had been annexed by the Army tracksters. The 880 yards Relay team, composed of Greene, Malloy, Inskeep and Moore, E., won the Championship of America in that event, and Lankenau in the javelin. Price in the shot-put, Armstrong in the discus, and Greene in the hop-step-and-jump were among our individual scorers.

The meet was featured by Lankenau ' s javehn heave, which bettered the Academy record, and by very good times in the running events despite the soggy weather. Boston College was able to collect only 35 points compared to the Army ' s 91 in the next meet. Captain Mickey Moore took his usual 10 points in the sprints with Greene placing second in these events. Other good performances were turned in by Graham, Campbell, Lankenau, h illberg, and McConnell of Army and Fleet of Boston, who ran a splendid quarter mile race. The third meet of the season, against Pitt, the team v on by a wide score. In this meet Lankenau again shattered his own javelin record with an excellent throw against the wind. Utterback of the visitors took first place in the broad jump and was tied with two Army men in the pole vault, but the showing of Price, Duff, and Davis in the field events, coupled with the speed of Mickey Moore, Carl Greene, Win Gra- ham, and " Honest John " McConnell on the track, was too much for Pitt. The only defeat of the season, that from N. y. U., was a close, heart-breaking one for Army. Our chances of a victory were practically shattered the week before by two accidents — one in the classroom to Epier and one to McConnell on the track. Without our only consistent A inner in the Page Three Hundred Fourteen ■ JG THE HURDLES PRICE. J. M.

For the last meet of the season, the team traveled to Morgantown to compete against the University of West Virginia. This meet proved to be the closest and most thrilling one ever engaged in by an Army team. With only the broad jump left un- finished. Army trailed its opponents by six points, that could be made up only by tak- ing first and second places. Moore and Greene accomplished this feat, thereby bringing victory to the Army team by the small margin of a single point. The score — 63K-62K- Probably the greatest per- formance of the day or season was Glattly ' s taking second place in the javelin event after suffering a concussion of the brain from a badly flung javelin. The four victories and the one close defeat coupled with the fine showing in the Penn Relays all combined to make a highly satisfactory season. Several individual and team performances stood out throughout the season. Lan- kenau consistently broke his own record in the javelin throv in nearly every meet of the season and was never beaten in a dual meet. hHis best throw of more than 201 feet ranks him among the best in the country, and he should be considered very seriously BLANDFORD Pdie Three Hundred Fiftee THE CHAMPIONSHIP RELAY TEAM as an Olympic prospect during the ensuing season. After the West Virginia meet he was rewarded for his excellent work by being elected captain of the team for 1932. Captain Mickey Moore was high point scorer for the season, scoring between 10 and 15 points in each meet. The four mile relay team, composed of Clark, Skidmore, Graham, and Campbell, lowered the acad- emy record in that event, as did Starbird in the steeple-chase and McConnell in the 400 meter hurdles. Jack Price took first place in the shot-put in every meet and several times closely approached the record set by Bud Sprague in 1929. Graham also established himself as a worthy successor to Lermond by taking at least one first place in every meet. The success of the team was influenced by the officers and cadets who acted as coaches and managers, but the primary reason was the spirit shown by the teams throughout the hard three months of work and the ex- pert work of Coach Novak whose track teams have chalked up 34 victories to 3 defeats since he took over the reins. The 1931 track season was an outstand- ing success for the Plebes. During Beast Barracks no particular stars were noticed, although the prospects were fair consider- ing very few men had had previous college experience. The success of the class of 34 in track is I Page Three Hundred Sixteen ,1 MORE POINTS FOR THE ARMY shown by the fact that they won all four of their meets handily — experiencing real com- petition from New Utrecht High School, New York City ' s P. S. A. L. champions. In practically every event except the half mile at least one good man was developed, and besides the record breakers many other of this year ' s yearlings are being counted on heavily by the varsity. The outstanding performers and their records are: Moorman, 5 ft. 11 in. in the High Jump; Rogers, 53 seconds in the 440; Martin 12 ft. in the Pole Vault; Jablonsky, 183 ft. in the javelin; and Durfee, 10.3 seconds in the 100 and 22.5 In the 220. With such an array of prospects to replace the men lost by graduation. Coach Novak should build a powerful aggregation to represent Army this spring. ARMSTRONG, J. G.

The early portion of the season was devoted to the development of a forward line and the strengthening of Army s attack. With Sciple, Kambhu, Praband, and Conway and substitutes from last year, Coach Marchand soon developed a strong forward line which grew more experienced as the season progressed. The half back line was composed of Cairns, B. S., Roberson, and Vansant, all lettermen. Captain Campbell and Cairns, D. M., were the full backs. Zitzman, who shared goal tending last year with Waters, again took that task. In Army ' s first game with Bucknell the defense led by Captain Campbell played an outstanding game.

E Forward DOWN THE FIELD WITH ARMY The bdll was continually in Bucknell ' s ter- ritory, but the forward line was a bit hesi- tant in their play, hlowever, a soal by Sciple gave Army the victory 1 to 0. In the second same against Rutgers the forward line had profited by their mistakes in the first game and scored five goals while the defense held Rutgers scoreless. The next game with fHarvard, last year ' s intercollegiate cham- pions, was the best game of the season as they again had a strong team. It was hard fought and cleanly played throughout. Army ' s strong defense was sorely pressed, but kept hHarvard from scoring. Early in the third period Baer scored a goal and Army held this lead to the end of the game. In the fourth game, against Williams, Army had the rather unique record of its goalie not being required to make a single goal save. Together with this defensive play, the forward line showed excellent scoring ability. Conway, Praband, and Baer each had two goals while Roberson added another. In the game against Lafayette, Army did not play up to its usual staridard. Lafayette made thirteen saves to Army s one yet Army only defeated them 1 to on Con- way ' s goal in the last period. In the game against Ml.T. Army was scored on the first time this season on a penalty kick awarded M.IT. in the second period. However, Army had regained its form and easily de- feated them 5 to 1. On the trip to Ohio State for the final game Army was forced to play in the rain for the first time this season. The field was rain-soaked and the conditions were far from favorable. In this game Ohio State defeated Army for the only loss this season by a score of 4 to 1 . PRABAND Forward I Page Three Hundred Twenty-one m 1 HP ,i. ' 1 ■. ■ g n. Ck.

The record of six victories and one defeat with twenty-one goals for Army and five for its opponents is one that will be hard to surpass. The record of ten straight victories over two seasons ' play without allowing a score is one that speaks well for Coach Marchand ' s style of play. This system introduced by Mr. Marchand is now reaching its heights and its wonderful success here in the past two years has caused its adoption by several intercollegiate teams. In amassing a total of twenty-one goals during the season Baer led the scorers with five goals while Conway and Praband scored three each. Godwin, Khambu, and Sciple had two each with Dolph, FHill, Tubbs, and Roberson scoring one apiece. The halfback line of Roberson, Cairns, B.S., and Vansant was proclaimed by a group of professionals as one of the best they had played against. The work of Captain Campbell, Cairns, D.M., Neely, and Zitz- man was responsible for the wonderful defensive record established. All have had several years under Coach Marchand and being well grounded in his system have been instrumental in its success. For the coming year Army has seven letter- men, led by Captain-elect Roberson, from which to mold another team to carry on the success established by the last two teams. In two seasons, with twelve victories and three defeats. Army has risen to a prominent position in intercollegiate soccer. ge Three Hundred Twenty-two THE CROSS COUNTRY SQUAD CROSS COUNTRY NLY one letterman from last year ' s combination wds lost by graduation and Coach Novak had Five - veteran runners about which to build a winning hill-and-dale combination.

This star trio consisted of Captain Davis, Timberlake and Dick, W. W. — all of them excellent dash men. Then too. Duff, a backstroker, and Leary, a very good diver, v ere also graduated from the team that had lost only three meets in three years. Coach Nill brought along the finest yearling material that Army has ever had, in Bunker, Maury, and Griffith, and these men with Captain Webster, hiartshorn, the Cairns brothers, Polk, McClelland, Bastion, and Armstrong gave the Cadets a strong team. The season opened with a close victory over New York University. Maury in his first Varsity meet won the 220 and 440 yard swims, breaking the Academy record in the longer race. Bunker, not to be outdone, lowered the breaststroke record of three years standing.

Fordham was represented by FHarms, an intercollegiate cfiampion, but his two firsts were not enough to make his team the victor. In the next meet against Colgate the Army swimmers won seven of the eight events, losing only the 440 yard swim to the visi- tors. Maury took the 220 yard swim in fast time and Bunker turned in a good perfor- mance in the century dash to help pile up Army ' s total. Griffith ' s diving was the highlight of the meet. Princeton brought up one of the strongest squads in the country the following v eek and the Cadets went down fighting. Maury sv am a wonderful race in the 220, losing by a very few yards to Dayton of the visitors, hlowever, he came back strong to win the 440 yard race and to set a new Academy record. Webster was beaten by a narrow margin for the first time in two years. Bunker gave all he had in the breast- stroke but West, the best college breast- stroker in the land, beat him by five yards. To end it all our relay team without Hart- shorn was beaten by some ten yards. The next week Army overwhelmed Am- herst 52-18. McClelland, Bunker, and FHartshorn broke the medley mark by nine seconds. Maury, Griffith, Cairns and all the others were on their best form and two other records were tied.

The Cadets were determined to win from Columbia, their ancient foe, but Webster ' s unfortunate tangle with the tactical depart- ment probably lost for Army the points necessary to make the 37-34 score read in Army ' s favor instead of Columbia ' s. The Cadets started strong with wins in the 50 and 220 by Hartshorn and Maury. Griffith and Park v ere brilliant in the diving and took both first and second place. Maury again entered the pool to tie the 440 yard mark for the third time. In the next race the two Columbia men and McClelland of Army finished within two feet but McClelland had the misfortune to get the third place. Bunker placed second to another fine breaststroker and then Harts- horn came through with his second victory of the day in the 100 yard sprint to keep Army in the van 34-29. In the relay race, however, the Columbia quartet was too strong for the Cadets and, by winning this event, took the meet. In the closing meet of the season against Lafayette, Hartshorn again won the 50 and 100 yard dashes,- Bunker lowered the record in the breaststroke to 2:40, just seven seconds better than the previous mark.

The one meet lost was with West Virginia. At this time the regular line up was greatly weakened by the loss of Powell, Olson, and Remus, out due to injuries. During the season several men came out for their first time and made a creditable record. Tiffany, at 145 pounds, was an exceptionally aggressive fighter. Had it not been for the injury received during the bout with Lewis of Penn State, Intercollegiate Champion, Tiffany would have had a fine chance of entering the Intercollegiate Tournament, hiarrell, who came out only two weeks before the end of the season, very nearly represented Army in the 145 pound class in the meet.

Powell at 125 pounds took the first two bouts, exhibiting some fine boxing. From the Temple meet until the Intercollegiates he was out, due to an injury in his right wrist. In the elimination bout at Syracuse he de- feated Burket of Syracuse to qualify him for the championship bout the following night. At this encounter he went up against Stoop of Penn State, the Champion, and was de- feated after three rounds of great punching. Cleveland at 125 pounds won six out of eight bouts, lost one and drew one. Un- doubtedly he is one of the smartest and cleverest boxers that ever appeared on an Army Boxing Team. Able to place his quick, short punches just where he wanted them, Cleveland gave his opponents plenty to worry them. In the final bout for the Intercollegiate Championship, he was de- feated by Wertheimer of Syracuse only after a close three rounds. At 135 pounds, Clainos, Engler, Greco, Coit, hlagan, and Bennet all fought at differ- ent times. Not until the trip to Pittsburgh did Coit come up to the 145 pound class. In his first bout at this weight he gained a technical knockout over Schimpf of Pitts- burgh. In the meet at Syracuse he met Lewis of Penn State, the defending cham- pion and lost by a decision. Kushner and Harrell are going to trade punches next year to see who will fill the place left by Coit. hHagan, on the other hand, came down from 145 to 135 for the Pitt meet and won Page Three Hundred Twenty-eight CLAINOS WADES IN from Martin. In the championship bouts at Syracuse he lost to Tuckerman of West Vir- ginia. In the second round hlagan de- veloped a lump over his right eye that caused him considerable worry during the next round. At 155 pounds Clark really had his first year of boxing. He fought more bouts than any other man on the squad. Winning five out of eight bouts of the regular sched- ule and taking a draw in another, he took second place in the Intercollegiate Tourna- ment. In this meet after defeating his man in the elimination bouts, he came up against Moran of Syracuse, who is perhaps the best fighter an Army man has ever met. Never- theless, Clark ' s fight was lost after three rounds of terrific punching by both men. One more round might very well have shown another victor. Olson at 165 pounds won four and drew two out of six bouts. Kendall and Arose- mena fought the other two bouts in that weight and won. In the bout with West Virginia Kendall boxed in the 175 pound class. Remus, the new captain, fought only three bouts during the season, winning two and taking a draw in the third. Remus showed some powerful punching and ex- cellent form in winning the title of Inter- collegiate Champion. Coughlin, this year s captain, had only three chances to fight due to the fact that there is no heavyweight class in the Intercollegiate Boxing Circle. All the teams met by Army were members except three and it was against these three Cough- lin won his bouts. Page Three Hundred Twenty-nine B PH Pi H 1 E r B I ' B ■rf feJL_1S L Q mtS ' E 5a.

The team seemed to be in better condition and spirit than it has been for several seasons and all indications point to even better work in the future. Rutgers opened the season, and although full of spirit, was unable to cope with Army s strength. McCrary, a third classman, who had formerly held a N. A. A. championship at Cornell College, soon showed us his ability by winning the first fall of the year in the 135 pound class. The next meet, with West Virginia, was not as successful, as McCrary and Presnell won the only points for Army. hHowever, there v as no Army man thrown, which indicated that we only lacked the experience of our opponents.

Apparently, Franklin and Marshall was equally determined to win. Until the end the results could be unpredicted, the score was so close on both sides. But Spengler, Army ' s heavyweight, was unable to pin his opponent ' s shoulders so the final result was a tie score. The next two meets, M. I. T. and Prince- ton colleges, were won by Army by scores which left no doubt of our superiority. Army lost only two bouts in each. Al- though Princeton possessed much strength, making necessary two extra period bouts, their condition was unequal to Army ' s. The next meet with North Carolina, a school which had formerly carried away South Atlantic Conferences consistently, resulted in the unsatisfactory score of a tie. In this meet due to injuries we were handicapped by the loss of Thompson and Presnell, two men who had been consistent point gatherers. Columbia, our next opponent, bowed in defeat, although the score was a close one. The meet started to our advantage by Co- lumbia ' s forfeit in the 118 pound class. In the heavyweight bout Lincoln had to give about 31 pounds to his opponent and con- sequently lost although his ability was no- tably the superior. The final meet of the season was with Washington and Lee at Lexington, Virginia. There Army was handicapped by fighting in 1 Pd3e Three Hundred Thirty-one THE ARMY WINS A FALL THOMPSON, W. V. DOWNING, E. B. d ring and different rules. fWowever, their team was the best due to the experience and condition of a major sport, which wresthng is considered at Washington and Lee. McCrary won the only bout for Army, which NA as, incidentally, the only fall in the meet. With the exception of the score the trip was a most successful one due, no doubt, to southern hospitality and other products of Virginia. Among the outstanding wrestlers were Jamison, Captain,- Thompson, Captain-elect; and McCrary. Presnell probably would have had a more successful season if he had not received an injury which incapacitated him for the last six bouts. Credit must also be given to McCrary for the untiring help which he gave Tom Jenkins in the coaching of the team. There still is no apparent solu- tion to the supplying of an experienced 118 pounder. Downing did exceptionally well in the class considering how handicapped he was by not having suitable competition at practice, and having to lose 4 or 5 pounds in order to make v eight. The future is exceptionally bright as there is strong material in the middle weights and no great lack of it anywhere on the squad. So ith a return of the spirit that was dis- played this year wrestling should be pulled out of the depression into which it had fallen during the last two years. LL, " ' . ■ L.

Let us imagine, however, a scope of this " Attack " to be widened a bit. Instead of considering the match of the Saturday before with its several bouts, think of the season just passed, with the various matches which united to mark the progress of Fencing, U. S. M. A., 1932. In the first, with the New York Athletic Club, Army experienced its baptism by steel and emerged very much the victors — with only a couple of broken blades (these latter by the sabre squad men — other- wise known as " The Cavalry. " ) Captain Murray and hloneycutt in the foils, Lipscomb and Edwards in the epee, and Kaiser in the sabres were the chief contributors toward making the Army score top hedvy_ SEASON ' S RESULTS 1932 Army Opponents 20 . .New York Athletic Club. . 14 8 .. .New York Fencers ' Club. . . 9 8 . .City College of New York. . 8 9 . . -Columbia University 8 14 Lafayette College 2 17 Saltus Fencing Club 10 13 ...Lafayette Fencing Club... 14 89 65 DOLPH, Manager, MURRAY, Captain; DIMONO, Coach i Page Three Hundred Thirty-three A BOUT IN THE INTERCOLLEGIATE FENCING OUARTER FINALS MOORE, R. E. Our next we lost by the narrow margin of 9-8 to the New York Fencers ' Club— who sent up a considerably stronger team than had their rivals of the Athletic Club a week previous. Kaiser put on a very pretty exhibition of sabre fencing when he de- feated Cohn, National Outdoor Sabre Champion of 1930. The next three matches involved quite a different type of play from that of the fencers clubs. Where the clubmen fencers are technicians of the game — the college fencers are primarily fighters. The very first college match proved the need for the latter type of sword play as well as the former. A comparatively young but very determined C. C. N. y. team tied us, 8-8. The tie was made possible by a new intercollegiate rul- ing which provides that epee bouts shall consist of the best two out of three touches (with double touches to count as double losses) instead of merely the one touch, as formerly. Powers, G. T., fought the eying bout, winning his other one handily, hloney- cutt led the scoring in the foils, making a perfect score for the day (three wins, no losses). With Columbia, we did but one bout better, 9-8. Murray, Honeycutt and Loth- rop gave us a 5-4 lead in foils — which proved later to be the deciding margin of victory — Gross and Edwards making a clean Page Ttnree Hundred Thirty-four A BUSY AFTERNOON FOR THE FENCERS EDWARDS, M. O. HONEvcurr sweep in epee and Kunzis and Moore drop- pins hotly contested bouts in sabre. On the final leg of the dual season when we again reverted to the clubs, Murray overcame his " one-bout-complex " of the three previous meets by vanquishing all three of the Saltus Club foilsmen. Moore, Kaiser, and Kunzig did each equally well in the sabre, losing one bout to the versatile left-hander, Fregosi, of the Saltus Club. The Lafayette Fencers Club came back, however, in the final dual meet to win from us 14-13. Kaiser, Moore and Kunzig re- peated their performance of the previous match — each winning two and losing the other. Gross and Edwards did the same in the epee, while Captain Murray and hloneycutt each took one in the foils. One bout, not included within the sched- ule, brought considerable prestige to the Army fencers. FHoneycutt took third place in the National Junior Foils Competition,— Ensigns Howard and Steere placing first and second respectively. The foil and epee squads vied for high honors throughout the season. Consider- able credit for the progress of the epee squad is due to Sergeant Futch and also to the invaluable competition experience af- forded by the U. S. Penthalon Squad train- ing here. . C Page Three Hundred Thirty-five mi GYMNASIUM 1932 IN spite of the sraduation of Yates and Helms, leaving no letter men to start the season, the Gym Team has proved the best in recent years. Since the advent of our new coach, Tom Maloney, who is both a skilled performer and an excellent instructor, a new interest in gymnastics has grown up. The effects of Christmas Leave and holiday dinners had hardly worn off before the first competition on January 9th. In thi s, though only a practice meet, Army found the stillest opposition that we were to run into in the first half of the season. The schedule proper started with an Army victory over Bow- doin, whose only points were scored in tumbling and in the rope climb. We were glad to welcome our friends from McGill University in Montreal for the next meet which resulted in a second Army victor SEASON S RESULTS 1932 Army Opponents 51 Bowdoin College 3 35 McGill University 1 48 . . .New York University. ... 6 53 Penn State 1 51 Colgate 3 30 ..

Penn State next fell before the Army onslaught under a score of 53-1, leaving us to face N. Y. U., a team which had beaten us decisively the year before. With the end of v inter sports, the team came out from behind the big net to take possession of the vvhole gym floor, where N. y. U. was trounced 48-6. Our oppo- nents were hampered by the loss of their star performer, Cumisky, a three-apparatus man. The next week saw Colgate fall un- der a similarly overwhelming score. M. I. T. was met and beaten in its own gym. The trip to Cambridge and the hospitality of our hosts will long be remembered. The Tech team gave us the stiffest fight we had experienced, yielding at last to a 31-28 Army victory. To finish the season, we won from Springfield on the last Saturday in March, ending the first completely vic- torious year ever attained by an Army Gym Team. Steele was high scorer for the season, with Neely, Paige and Sibley next in order. Cepeda ' s sensational rope climbing consis- tently drew more applause than any other event. By skinning up the 20 foot rope in 4.4 seconds Cepeda excelled by far the previous Academy record of 5.1, and put himself in line for an Olympic title. On the parallel bars, Steele and Praband were III Page Three Hundred Thirty-seven .DINT. ' f UP THE BOPE good for first and second places between them, in an average meet, while Stewart, King, and Stevens formed formidable back- ing. Cepeda, Neely, Winkle, and Baker compose one of the strongest ring teams in the country. Competition has also been keen on the side horse, where Steele, Fraser, and Wallace have each placed first, with Craig showing marked development. On the high bar. Barlow, Sibley, and Betts took all but two places during the entire season, with Sibley taking six firsts. In tumbling, Neely has taken five first places, and two seconds, with Paige giving close competition. Cepeda, on the rope, is backed by Paige and Peca. The Plebes, in winning over Dickinson High School, showed much promising ma- terial for next year ' s varsity. This year has undoubtedly witnessed phenomenal development in the Gym Squad. This surprising success is due primarily to our new coach, Mr. Tom Maloney, who possesses the wisdom and ability to con- ceive and build a strong organization. The Vi illing support of Lieutenants Tansey and Miley, the cheerful generosity of the man- ager, Johnson, and the sterling qualities of leadership of the captain, John Steele, have combined to make this a completely suc- cessful season. DINT i. Page Three Hundred Thirty-eight p II POLO A RMV S Outdoor Intercollegiate Polo Championship team of last year has spent a hard season fighting the Medical, Academic and Tactical departments as well as hard riding opponents of no mean ability, and with a far greater percentage of victories than defeats. The brand of polo played by Academy teams has been steadily improving over a period of years and that of last season was no exception, making up in hard riding and hard playing what it sometimes lacked in brilliance of technique. After opening its outdoor season last May 2 with a 5 to 2 victory over Princeton at Princeton, the Army squad dashed through a uniformly successful season culminating in the capture of the Intercollegiate title on Long Island last June.

The new coaching staff took over during the summer. Under the general direction and supervision of Major Boye, Lieutenant Walker was given charge of the " A ' squad, Lieutenant LaDue of the " B " squad and Lieutenant Galloway of the " C ' squad. These four, incidentally, made up last year ' s Cavalry outdoor team, champions of the post. With the loss of Thinnes, considered one of the best of Army poloists, from the squad because of Infantile Paralysis, the season started with Sudduth, Grunert and Scott as the Army representatives. After a fall of hard practice, with more than usual atten- tion being devoted to stick work on the wooden horses. Army opened on January 16th against a trio from Fort hTamilton tying it at five all. This v as followed the next Saturday by a 6-5 victory over Governors Island. Beginning to feel their stride the Army stickmen next took the Essex Troop three by a score of 16 to 2. However, with Scott and Sudduth incapacitated by injury and academics, on February 13th, Penn Military College won from Army 7-6. The Army team met its old rivals with Thayer, Grunert and Anderson at one, two and back. The scon B.

The Cadets took the lead in the first period to the six chukker game and carried it through to the end, despite a Princeton rally in the last two chukkers. hlarvard was the next to fall before the Army riders in one of the most spectacular games of the year. One that will be re- membered for freak goals and freak misses. The score, while not indicating the close- ness of the game, at the end was gratifyingly in Army ' s favor 14 to 8. The indoor season was brought to a close on March 5th when the Yale Polo team made its annual trip to West Point with an experienced trio to win from Army 18 to 6. The high goal Yale team was at all times superior to the Cadets and had the game well in hand by the end of the first chukker. Although the Cadets seemed to find them- selves at the offset of the fourth chukker, Yale with her handicap of twenty-one goals maintained their high collegiate reputation. FRANKLIN, J. F. ' I Paae Three Hundred Foity-one I III III HOCKEY THIS year the N. C. A. A. Rules Committee made several radical changes in an attempt to speed up what is already the fastest of sports. The only differences now between professional and amateur hockey are a few restrictions on the amateur goalies. The great improvements of these changes was noticeable from the start of the season. After only three weeks of practice the team went to Lake Placid during the Christmas holidays for a three game series with Yale. Although Army lost all three games the series was of invaluable help in improving the stick work and skating of the entire squad. Army won the first home game from Colgate in a fog filled rink by a score of 6 to 4. The next two weeks Army outplayed Williams, last year ' s opponent at Lake Placid, and St. Stephen ' s College.

The Army team played a good fast offensive game but were a little weak on the defense. Princeton, who had beaten Vale, came next and took Army 7 to 1 . The game, played at Princeton, was never in doubt but brought out the fight in the Army team. An unusual thing about this game was the inability of Princeton ' s first line to break through Army ' s defense. The next two games saw Army win two decisive victories over the Connecticut Aggies 10 to and Vermont 9 to 0. Clarkson College brought one of the strongest of collegiate teams and in spite of Army ' s improved showing won 9 to 4. Royal Military College of Canada came here for the final game. The Army players played one of their best games but were unable to overcome the superiority of the Canadians ' stick handling and skating. The visitors brought several of the best players in amateur hockey and it was a pleasure to watch their play although they won 7 to 1. There was a larger turnout this year than ever before but due to the forced short practices we were not able to devote the time necessary to develop new men. Every game brought out the great need for more SUTHERLAND Page Three Hundred Forty-three A SCUFFLE OVER THE PUCK experience, in both skating and stick handling. To help improve the team sev- eral practice games were arranged with the Atlantic City Sea Gulls, St. Nicks of New- burgh, Bear Mountain Cubs, and Yale Cougars. These games were all well play- ed and oF great value to the team. This year the team loses nine First classmen, among whom are six lettermen. They are Captain Darcy, Cain, J. S., hjuglin, and Sutherland, J. R., deFense,- Goodrich first string center; Tisdale and Black, Vi ' ings; and Thatcher and Zitzman, goalies. In spite of these losses the prospect for next year is exceptionally good. Among the exper- ienced players back next year are Wagstaff, next year ' s captain. Lane, J.

This year ' s Plebe team will also give several good men who should fit into the team: Donohue, J. M., center; Bryde, wing; Cady and How- ell, W. B., deFense; and Sawyer, goalie. With this material Coach Marchand will be able to Form several good deFense combi- nations and two of the best lines in the his- tory of Army hockey. li Page Three Hundred Forty-foui 11 THE TENNIS SQUAD THE 1931 TENNIS SEASON THE 1931 season was both the hardest and the most successful that an Army tennis team has had in ' several years. The record of six matches won out of the ten played does not sound imposing in itself but there is far more to tennis than can be measured by cold statistics. No one who followed the for- tunes of the team through the season could help but feel that, whether winning or losing, here was a fine group of players, well coached, working smoothly together, and producing a high grade of tennis. The success of the season was due in no small measure to the flying start which the team was able to make. Adequate indoor facilities were available this year for the first time, as the Athletic Association laid out four courts on the new hockey rink. Here, during the slushy days of March, the men were able to get their strokes under control and to do much of the preliminary work that must necessarily precede SEASON ' S RESULTS 1931 Fordham 6 Amherst 7 Haverford Army 6 Opponents ... . 1 North Carolina State 9 5 Lehigh 4 6 Swarthmore 2 3 Rutgers 4 3 Lafayette 6 5 Wesleyan 4 3 University of Pennsylvania 6 44 41 HERO Managef Page Three Hundred forty-five iiirii iif f ) " wi. " I " f AN INTERESTING CONTEST ON NUMBER ONE the Start of serious outdoor practice. Work on the boards was not neglected either, and the wrestling room of the gym resounded daily to the ceaseless banging of countless balls against the wooden screens. The Army line-up contained three vete- rans from the previous year: Helms (the Captain of the team), Thatcher, and Kerwin. These men in the order named, together with Schull, Reynolds, and Guiney, formed the singles list. In the doubles, various combinations were tried, the final choice being Helms and Thatcher, Kerwin and Beard, Schull and Reynolds. This line-up, with occasional shifts and substitutions, re- mained essentially the same throughout the season. The arrival of good weather was fol- lowed closely by the first match with Ford- ham on April 22nd. Army emerged from this encounter with a 6-1 victory, and look- ed around hopefully for more worlds to conquer. It found what it wanted in Am- herst and Haverford, who bowed in quick succession to Army, 6-3 and 7-2. With North Carolina, however, it was a different story, and the team went down to glorious defeat, 9-0. This match was without doubt the best of the season as far as fine tennis was concerned, for Carolina boasted such players as Grant, the National Clay Court Champion, and Hines, former National f Page Three Hundred Forty-si: SOME DOUBLES ACTION Junior Champion. The feature of the match was the beautiful fisht of hielms and Thatcher against the Grant-fHines doubles combination, in which the last set ran to 13-11. Undismayed by defeat, Army proceeded to vanquish Lehigh 5-4, Swarthmore 6-2, and Wesleyan 5-4, in well-played matches. Then in two hard fought encounters the team succumbed to Rutgers 3-4, and to Lafayette 3-6. In the final match of the season with Pennsylvania, Army faced the enemy in for- eign territory and suffered a 6-3 defeat. At home, the Plebes upheld Army prestige by trouncing MacKenzie 6-0, revealing good material for next year ' s varsity. During the season, two matches, those with Columbia and N. Y. U., were can- celled on account of rain. On the vv ' hole, a well-rounded tennis squad stood up ad- mirably under the stiffest schedule yet at- tempted by an Army team. x 5 Page Three Hundred Forty-seven Ill ' lli.li THE GOLF SQUAD GOLF THE first match of the season, played away from home against Army ' s strongest opponent, Princeton, ended disastrously for the local hiagens. When the fog of battle lifted Army had suffered defeat by a score of 8-1. The only bright spots on a cold and wind-swept course were Parkers victory of 2 up on Princeton ' s No. 4 man and Cal Smith ' s match with Dunlop (later intercollegiate champ), which ended on the fifteenth green. Cal put up an admirable battle all the way and has something to be proud of in the game he turned in. Young lost to Moffet, prominent in golfing circles, Mather to Gordon, Maccaller to Wand, and Stunkard to Wright. Gordon had to play one under par to take over Mather, one of Army ' s stars. In the second match, played at home. Army tied the strong Penn State team with victories by Smith and Young and by winning one foursome. In this match Cal Smith proved his mettle by taking a birdie on the eighteenth to tie his opponent, and then winning the match one up on the 20th.

Parker lost to Test on the 19th, while all the other players won by decisive scores. Young, the star of the day, turned a par shattering 70, which es- tablished a new course record. History repeated itself in the fourth match when Lafayette won four matches to five to follow up a similar score of the year before. The scores turned in were far be- low the usual Army standard, indicating that the team just had an off-day. In the last two matches against M. I. T. and Amherst, Army came through to triumph by a score of 5-1 in each. In the M. I. T. match. Smith was low for Army with a 76 and in the Amherst match Stunkard was low with a 75. In the foursom es of the Amherst match Young and Smith won one up, and Mather and Stunkard eight up and six to go. In the foursome Cal Smith was three down at the turn but came home in 36 to pull his foursome out of the fire and win one up on the last hole. He carded a 76 and Young a 77, for the 18 holes. The Plebes won all their matches and foursomes against Mackenzie School but turned in no sensational scores. The pros- pects for the 1932 season appear quite bright inasmuch as the schedule has been so arranged that the team will not meet its usual extremely stiff opposition in the first meet. Cal Smith, Fred Young, and George Mather appear to be the shining lights of the 1931 season and if all goes well Army is due to clean up with these three demons whacking the ball down the narrow fair- ways of the Stormking Country Club course. f f if Page Three Hundred Forty-nine g - firfr :i THE RIFLE SQUAD THE OUTDOOR RIFLE TEAM " THE 1931 season proved to be d brilliant and highly successful one for the Rifle Squad. In the five team match at Washington, Army won over two colleges and lost by only 10 and 11 points to the Marines and the District of Columbia National Guard. Both of these teams were of national champion- ship rank. On May 1 1 Army defeated the New York Stock Exchange team by 1 26 points and established a new Academy record of 2342 out of a possible 2500. Cadet Powell, G. P., at the same time set a new individual record of 244 out of a possible 250. The Rifle Team gives all credit to its esteemed coach. Captain Barnes, for welding the squad into a powerful unit, unbeatable in collegiate circles.

On their own range the Cadets lost to the New York Stock Exchange and decisively defeated Syracuse and Columbia Universities. On March 19th the team participated in the Eastern Intercollegiate matches held at West Point and captured third place in a field of fifteen teams.

Page Three Hundred Fifty-one THE PISTOL SQUAD PISTOL TEAM, 1931 " THE Military Academy pistol team, under the second year of Major Inglis ' most capable guidance, has ' consistently and steadily showed brilliant improvement. In its First match, the open meet at Trenton, New Jersey, the team carried off all honors in the class armed with the .45 Colt Service Automatic Pistol, and seriously threatened the police teams armed with the more accurate revolvers. In the National Matches, DensFord (1931) tied for first place in the individual championship, the highest award possible for a single entrant. Densford also bettered the Academy record twice during the year. 1932 will without a doubt continue to see the same success for the Pistol Team which has made it a credit to the Academy in the past.

Now, ' however, the prospects are bright. The Athletic Association has offered to build a permanent plant to include Traps and a Skeet Coupe whenever a suitable location can be found. This promises a bright future for one of the best Sunday afternoon pastimes at West Point. The Corps boasts several trapshooters of great merit. " Slicker " Gurr, " Beany " Bache and " Lonny " Campbell can usually be found on a Sunday afternoon plugging away at the clay discs — and breaking most of them. Lieutenant Sims, the Treasurer of the club, is another enthusiast and an accurate one with a twelve gauge. THE FISHING CLUB DENEAThi the shade of the trees on Fort Clinton parapet the Fishing Club of the Class of ' 32 came into being. Thereafter the steward at the mess hall, the stable sergeants, and sundry other persons were kept busy supplying the mighty nimrods with food and horses for their weekly jaunts to Round Pond and Popolopen Creek. E ' en there were those hardy souls who bestirred themselves before reveille for some early casting at Lusk. To those who availed themselves of their fishing privileges came many happy hours spent on the lakes and shores dreaming and fishing the hours away. What better recompense for a small catch than a night beneath the stars, listening to the wind in the trees, the waters lapping the shores to the tune of the cowbell at Round Pond; and the knowl- edge of missing Sunday parade? SIMENSON OFF ON A FISHING TRIP Page Three Hundred Fifty-three BATTERY BYRNE IN Revolutionary times there was a deep hollow at the ' north end of the plain where, tradition has it, military prisoners were executed. Execution hollow has been since that time a tennis court and a mortar battery. The bat- tery was named in honor of Cadet Byrne, who was killed while playing football. For the past few years Cadets have received Coast Artillery drill in the old battery, but now it has been com- pletely filled to the level of the plain. Page Three Hundred Fifty-four A f NORTH GUARD HOUSE CADET Activities have grown up in size and importance since the beginning of the century. Originally the North Guard House was planned to accommodate a second officer in charge with office and living quarters, but, as condi- tions have changed, the space is now devoted to Corps publi- cations and the Dialectic Society. The North Guard House is truly the activity center for the Academy.

There was a time when the authorities frowned upon such things, claiming that a cadet ' s time was too occupied vv ' ith studies and that any activities or sports would lessen the Academy ' s efficiency. But of recent years the All- Powerful Ones have changed their minds, and nov our activities receive a welcome and much needed help from the Academic Board and the Tactical Department. The Election Committee and the Officers of the First Class are a vital and necessary part of our cadet life. Who would call class meetings and thereby give the Secretary practice in writing up the minutes ' Who would call the class together to offer an expression of gratitude to Cadet Files, Captain Command- ing Company ' N ? None other than these two committees who go fighting on, valiantly protecting the interests of the class against all comers, including bucks, captains, and the barracks policemen.

It is true that they are seldom called upon to decide a question of honor but it is due to their own efforts that such is the case. Unswerving in their loyalty to the Corps, the [Honor Committee is the keeper of our brightest and dearest tradition — a tradition that lives and continues to grow as each day passes. " Say, Eddie, do you think I can get a diamond in my ring for a hundred dollars? " Joe, how do you think a tourmaline would look with yellow gold? " These and like questions have all been settled by our Ring Committee. Choosers of the Class Crest, arbiters in questions concerning the rings, they have done an admirable piece of work.

In addition to these there are pocket and cushion billiards, chess, checkers, Ta-bowl, and bumming cigarettes. There are also lots of magazines — including the Atlantic Monthly for July, 1925 — but one can never find them. Some day maybe one of the Board of Governors will tell us where our period- icals are hidden. But, really, we do have a comfortable, cozy club. There is nothing more enjoyable than to go over there on a rainy afternoon, indulge in a game of billiards or chess, or read the latest issue of the Pointer while listening to the radio — if it ' s running. Oh, yes, there ' s a piano over there also. The Board of Governors has a hard job but the members fulfill their positions well. They often have the magazines put over there at least a month after they ' re published. They keep the half dozen or so cues in condition. They try to keep the piano in tune, but can t seem to get the radio going. Those of us who aren ' t in " L " or " M Companies can ' t kick.

Such was Camp Illumination. Cadets, or most of them, made their own costumes. White coats, white trousers, sheets, and plenty of dye and water. Mix well and hang in the shade to dry and what have you? Only about four hun- dred Arabian costumes. Camp, on an afternoon in early August, looked like the aftermath of " Bargain Day. " Some costumes were novel, some were beautiful and others laughable. But hours of love and labor had been put into them all and, laughable or not, we were well satisfied. The decoration of Camp could not begin until the Popolopen hike. Returning by truck every afternoon from Popolopen or Round Pond, the Camp Illumination Committee performed miracles and soon had a drab military camp transformed into a brilliant, scintillating Arabian village. Camp Illumination itself was a great success. The hop floor was nearly as smooth as Cullum. ARABIA— wild and woolly Page Three Hundred Sixty-four Ii MADDUX ROYAL, J, M. BROWN, S. L.

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS THE Cadet Chapel Sunday School Squad, first organized in 1921 by the Y. M. C. A. and now under the direction of Chaplain Kinsolving, is the only activity which enjoys the privilege, unusual for West Point, of working with and teaching small children. Not only do the Cadet teachers conduct Sunday School for an hour each Sunday morning during the academic year, but they assist with the Christmas and Lenten services and the annual picnic held for the children of the school. Here comes our hero, quite spoony in his red sash, sword and forty-four buttons. He goes gliding up the aisle and following him is a young lady (latest Cullum rating 2.7). The Cadet continues up the aisle and finds the young lady a lovely seat right behind our Commandant. But what is this? Our heroine has slipped into a seat next to her one and only (for the current week-end) cadet. Ha, the handsome cadet in the red sash has been foiled again. MATHER DAVIS, E.

And most of us do — for two reasons — these boys can really sing, and one hundred and fifty voices are too much through which to sleep.

Feel that chilly thrill run up your back ' ? Think of hHer darling slippers under the bed. Think of never having to dust your locker out again. Think of the heaven that C. Q. could be. And then think of a brat ripping your military monograph to bits. But life is give and take and we must hope to find happiness in both. At any rate, according to our solution, in 1936 the War Department stops arguing about pay bills long enough to issue an order to the effect that only cadets of the three underclasses shall not possess moustaches, dogs or wives and that cadets of the first class are merely prohibited the ownership of mous- tacfies and dogs; in other words, first classmen may marry. Struck dumb at first, then cognizant of the gate to happiness the order opens, they hasten to put the order to test. Ferdinand Files (Ford) and Squizzle (McGrew) are among the Who ' s Who of U. S. M. A. that subscribe. Patsy (Benner) and Gertie (Finkenaur), the elected ones, arrive and in a short time they and others of their sex have so transformed the model lives of their husbands and have brought so many complications into the midst of these quiet grey walls, where only Uncle Sam worries, that not a few first classmen are wishing the War Department had gone right on arguing about the pay bills. Little more time has passed until the state of affairs is unbearable. Ferdie and Gertie seem to be the only two who even partially make a go of it. But even they are influenced by the weight of opinion their respective sexes give the problem. The men decide to have the marriages annulled. The femmes THE LAUNDRy SPIKES AGAIN Page Three Hundred Seventy ' 1(1 " HERE COME THE BRIDES- FORD SCOTT AND BENNER declare that they will demand a five dollar boodle book each month as alimony. An indignation meeting breaks up in a riot in which the men are naturally worsted. To boot, the Tactical Department has seen the disadvantages oF unwittingly interrupting — of having worried cadets in the corps. The War Department comes through again before the damage is irreparable and annuls the marriages to the delight of all. The wives leave. It takes only a week for the erstwhile married cadets to realize the opportunity they have bungled, and to understand that they are mainly at fault for the misunderstandings. They find that it wasn ' t so bad after all, despite having to share the bedclothes and whatnot. At any rate they determine to beg forgiveness and ask the girls to giv e them another chance in June. And so the chapel bells ring again — this time for sundry odd second lieutenants and better understood wives. Nor would the account be complete without some mention of the effect these imagined events produced at the cadet laundry and the mess hall. Stark and Madison as laundry spikes and Hlowarth, Graham and Donoghue as waiters gave the audience some of their longest laughs in portraying just how the hired hands took the situation. Davidson and Culver, Larson and Marshall, E. D., together with Downing and Rogers gave excellent pictures of married couples. Adams as a b. j. plebe and later a minister and Bishop, H. S., as a Tac, left profound impressions of their abilities. Ford, Benner, McGrew and Finkenaur gave proof of the good reason for having been picked for leading parts. Scott, R. L., made a hit acting as others like to think he really is. The Cadet Orchestra under their new leader, Marshall, E. D., gave the audience a taste of well played music and showed themselves to be on an entirely new high level. MARSHALL. ROGERS, C.

Plebes don ' t count. To the Orchestra it ' s music; to the Corps it s — shall v e say? — a necessary evil. Necessary because, if a cadet had nothing to bother him at any one time, he d probably die oF the shock. Some one has made the suggestion that, since Fort Putt is not in use on week-day afternoons, it would be an ideal place For the Orchestra to practice. Second the motion. But enough of this. The Orchestra does have its uses. During the winter its Saturday afternoon tea hops are a blessing indeed to those inveterate snakes whose one desire is to dance all afternoon and all night, too. These tea hops are really quite nice. The cro A d isn ' t crushing, the music is agreeable, and the Orchestra doesn ' t have to be v ound up and have its needle changed after every piece, which is something after all. This band is also a vital part of every Hundredth Night Show. It fills in beautifully during the inter- mission and certainly covers the noise made by the stage crew changing scenery. There ' s a wild rumor out that the stage crew practices with the Orchestra so that they can drop the curtains and other stage eFfects in time to the music. Last year they tied it up. One curtain missed a beat but didn ' t miss the drummer. The boys in the Orchestra have a great deal oF credit due them. They spend a lot oF time on their work and, regardless oF what this rite-up says, turn out some real good music. Brunt on the trumpet, Rogers on the trombone, and Rude on sax, clarinet, zither, or A hat-have-you are hard to beat. More power to them and may they play as no one has ever played beFore.

Page Three Hundred Seventy-six SCOTT MORRIS WALMSLEY BUSINESS STAFF GRAHAM, A. Our purpose is to place the Corps of Cadets before you, as a unit in tfie long line of military men who march across these pages from the past and ever onward, beyond the present. We, in our short day, have served to link the Corps of Yesterday with the Corps of Tomorrow. We have caught the grail they flung to us, and leave this record of our tenure. We stand upon the threshold of another life — but first, we seek to crystallize in printed word, in photograph and drawing, the memory of those friendships and experiences which means to us: West Point. Annuals, perhaps, present more interesting problems than any other type of literature. Yet above Pase Three Hundred Seventy-seven McCORMACK HARDY FORD SCIPLE BIOGRAPHY EDITORS all, they must not present, in their final form, interestins problems — but rather, interesting solutions. The chapters of a novel may be born, and remain, spontaneous or haphazard,- for a novel need not please every reader to gain success. Not so the Howitzer. This book, to be successful, must be of value to every member of its audience. It must gain new friends, yet keep the old. To the civilian, to whom our slang is strange, it must present a lucid outline of military life and the purpose of our profession. To the old grad, retired these many years, it must bring assurance that the long grey line is not forgotten. To those graduates who serve in all the far-flung branches of the Army, it must be proof-positive that the scon, R. L. Circulation Mgr. Page Three Hundred Seventy-eight SECOND CLASS STAFF Corps has not " Gone to Hell " and that their successors are ever ready to maintain the standards of the past. And lastly, to the yet unborn classes of the future, it must present a tangible picture of what their predecessors did, back in the early Thirties. Such has been the wheel to which we set our shoulders, such has been our problem. We should be vain indeed, were we to accept full credit for its solution. We have been, in many instances, but tools in patient hands. To Mr. Osnis, an ever-faithful friend of the hHowitzer, we are indebted for portraits ranging from the i f-A B. Page Three Hundred Seventy-nine THIRD AND FOURTH CLASS ASSISTANTS President of the United States to the Commandant of Cadets. His ready pen has lent new life, new individuality where otherwise we should have been obliged to resort to that prosaic refuge of celebrity, the press. Charlie " Wielert, whose patience an d good nature has so often been our stay in times of stress, has given expression to his artistic sense and mastery of film here no less than in the " A " -books of our class. Lieutenant Pratt, A.C., is responsible for the majority of the aerial photos which, without his willing help, we should have been unable to procure. Mr. Stockbridge, of the Drawing Department, has placed his personal files at our disposal; his work has helped no less to fill these pages. To Colonel I Page Three Hundred Eighty Ill MR, BENEDICT A, OSNIS MR. CHARLES WIELERT Fdrman, of the Post Library, is due credit for invaluable assistance along the lines of historical research. His accurate knowledge helped us, more than once, when the amateur historians among us tripped upon erroneous facts. Mr. William L. Schilling, of the Schilling Press, has been constantly ready with apt advice and prompt cooperation. Mr. P. S. Gurwit, of Jahn Oilier, our engraver, though mentioned last is not the least among those whose mature guidance has led us through the editorial maze. It has been impossible to include here all persons who have aided us. To those unsung friends, we give the assurance that they are not forgotten, and that the memory of their kindness will remain with us as surely as those other memories which we have striven to perpetuate. It is finished. Page Three Hundred Eighty-one LAIR MARTINDELL PRVER BEARD WILLIAMS, C. L. SCHROEDER BESSON WRAV HOEHL SMITH, R. H. THE POINTER STAFF THE POINTER T S hard to write objectively about the Pointer — for those of us whose words have been the Pointer. ' Deeply conscious of our shortcominss, we cannot be too pleased with our successes. But looking backward — there have been successes. Whenever we aroused sharp criticism we felt much more comfortable than when we found unquestioned acceptance. And we did arouse criticism — plenty of it. The Pointer, we believe, should be alive with controversy — and sharp with satire. It became necessary to express the editorial policy in an early issue. Here it is: These pages are open to any cadet in the Academy for the presentation of his views on any pertinent subject; they are not for the exclusive use of any one class or any one faction. Publi- cation does not by any means imply indorsement, but the POINTER will continue to print controversial editorials, reserving only the right to eliminate those tending to discredit West Point or the Army in the eyes of outsiders. And that platform upheld every drawing and every paragraph which, in the dress of humor, attacked an existing or threatened condition. We fought the idea that the Pointer is dominated by a clique of cynics — but in the end we came to Page Three Hundred Eigfity-two SECOND CLASS STAFF accept it. Outside contributions were rare. Yet never let it be said that the Corps failed to show interest in any particular issue — after its publication. If cadets b-ached to us on paper instead of annoy- ing the staff with verbal gripes we could run a Vox Pop that would shame one of our weekly contem- poraries. Our work — cadet-conceived, cadet-executed — has not been free from crudeness. We are not ashamed of that. There s damn little smoothness and finish to most of us, and we are rather glad that we re not fakes anyhow. At least the Pointer has preserved the amateur spirit in West Point publications. We ' ve tried to stick closely to the cadet attitude, to reflect the peculiar cadet humor-sense. Our work was our own — not the product of professional idea-merchants and artists who grow fat in the lush fields of college magazines and annuals. To our credit (as we believe) we have made two distinct innovations in the years routine. We published a Literary Number that we ' re quite proud of. The quality of the work isn ' t the important thing but in that issue we recognized a certain ability some men have to express themselves in words. A door a small one, it is true — has been opened for the outlet of an important talent. Incidentally, as our star humorist once remarked, Poe, E. A., could never have written a line for the Pointer if it had existed in his day. He was deficient. hHow many potential Poes did we miss last February? One or two, maybe. They were probably D in English. Again, we presented a Grad ' s Number — edited and created by officers on the post, it was a com- .-Xd. .■ ' ■.!. ins ' .b-njacf Page Three Hundred Eighty-three THIRD AND FOURTH CLASS ASSISTANTS plete success, according to the verdict of the Corps. Next year will see another Grad s Number, and questionless it will rival the Femmes ' Number in popularity. Mournfully nz meditate on the fact that a Pointer published by a non-reg staff — femmes or grads — is always more interesting than our own numbers — We ought to know our business by this time. Now that the year is over, we see a thousand things we could have done — in make-up, in creative work, and in general improvement. But that ' s the concern of our successors. The Second Class staff have already proved their ability, and they have the complete confidence of the graduating editors — for what that ' s worth. The yearlings too have had their fling. Their Furlo Number caught between its covers something that we can ' t help envying a little bit — a touch of insouciance, a gleam of glamour. Never again. Be- yond question the typical cadet, as the Pointer sees him, is a pre-Furlo yearling. After Furlo he starts to become an officer — or so the Tactical Department v ill tell you — with a hasty glance at the quill pad to be sure you ' re properly written up for, " Yawning cynically while being told that he was being treated as a young officer, 19th inst. " We ' re getting off the track, of course. But then — we always do. We thought for a minute that we were back on the job — tearing off an editorial about nothing while the presses waited expectantly. But no — never again for that, either. What the Hell? — we ' ll be getting sentimental if we don ' t lay off this stuff. McCORMACK % Page Three Hundred Eighty-four CAIRNS, B. S., Cha PORTER, I. W.

To attempt to please more would be to attempt the impossible. Some of the more cynical of the Corps, those who have no rich maiden aunts or wealthy god-fathers, claim that the blind-fold test is used exclusively. The rest of us sigh, murmur " What ' s the use? " , and send the cards anyhow. We know of one recipient who thought the cadets with bugles and drums on one of the cards were too cute for words. So, you see, all the world isn ' t so hard to please. But all harsh words and despairing sighs aside, the Committee does deserve some credit. They at least try to please us. And what more can one ask? hlow would you like the job? According to Scott, you wouldn ' t like it so well. It ' s no sinecure, that ' s certain. If you try to get out a card that s different and good-looking and one that you know the Corps will like, the price shoots skyward. If you try to keep the price down, what have you got? Well, what have you got?

This little tome, an annual publication, contains items of information, both geographical and traditional, concerning West Point and the home life of the Corps. Whereas " The Pointer " records the present gossip and doings of our august body, and the " hHowitzer " takes those who join the long grey line each June back over their four years of cadetship, " Bugle Notes " serves to initiate the incoming Classes to those items of tradition, custom, and history which form the back- ground of this institution. The handbook contains a fund of excellent advice to the newcomer, drawn from the experience of those who have gone before. Here, too, may be found those lyric masterpieces known as " Poop " ; our songs, our yells, our schedules, and activities both athletic and non-athletic. During the strenuous period of new-cadetship, " Bugle Notes " forms the sum total of reading material (we hesitate to say literature) available, and so " ye plebe " oft peruses it from cover to cover until its contents, like Elizabeth ' s Calais, are engraved in mind and heart.

President OFFICERS, CLASS OF 1933 THE CLASS OF 1933 GRADUATION DAY, 1931— a chaos of kaleidoscopic memories. First Class reveille, the last breakfast, the long-awaited formation for graduation, the catch in every throat as the First Class marches off for the last time, spasmodic handclapping as the diplomas sre av drded, the slightly hysterical " Long Corps for ' 31, " the hollow square, makes, the last special order — then " Furlo Class, fall out! " — the mad race across the Plain — " Sir, Cadet Ducrot reports his departure. " Furlo! Freedom! The wide world! Europe — the Philippines — New York — or just plain Home. Then August twenty-eighth and reality. Furlo! Never again! Now as we sit and look back at that long dead summer with its femmes, full moons, and the night wind rushing by, it seems more a phantom imagining than something which actually happened to us. Yet nothing can take from us the glamour, the beauty of those happy memories. Academics — Phil, Chem, Spic and Drawing — Doughboy and intermurder — football, and tragedy. Dick Sheridan, our class President, typification of our every ideal, struck down in the height of his youth and strength. But the Army carried on, and inspired by his example, rose to new heights of glory. Our own classmates, Summerfelt, King, Evans, Fields, Kilday, FHerb, and the rest, played worthy parts in the glorious Notre Dame and Navy games. Meanwhile, the extremes of the class battled to a scoreless tie on the Annual Thanksgiving Day Goat-Engineer tilt. There was talk of a return engagement, but with Spic turn outs just ahead, nothing came of it. Suddenly football season was over, and fleeting Christmas leave had gone. We were faced with the realization that another was a whole year away. The FHundred Dark Days, brightened only by an occasional date and the weekly three ring circus at the gym, dragged along. Gray everywhere — gray uniforms, gray buildings, gray trees, gray world, gray sky. At last — " One Hundred Days, sir! " The Corps returned to life. Hundredth Night Show, bigger and better than ever. The Plain became a brighter green , the trees awoke to life, the sky turned blue and gold.

Spring sports — Lacrosse, baseball, track. Educational trips, choir trips, Corps squad trips. Anything and everything to get away — to expand. Spring! Hustle, bustle, and turmoil. Sword and voice on the Plain. Then that foretaste of power. The First Class went to Aberdeen and left to us the reins. May, with its warm golden days, its mingled feelings of gladness to be alive, and of regret for im- minent partings, with the soft reverent hush of Memorial Day, soon gave way to June, and once more we were in the midst of our lasts. Those are our feelings now as memory wanders back over the past year. Only the highlights are clear to us, only the brightest spots stand out. Vet there are so many little instances which demand preservation in this, our Class History. Who can ever forget the happy surprise in the chance meeting with a classmate on Furlo? Who does not remember that reunion day in New York, that hysterical last night of freedom? Bonded together as never before, Thirty-Three showed blase old New York a new fellowship. Then there were those lazy Autumn days when surveying and Chem labs left our evenings free for long letters, for pipe dreams, for reminiscences. With the advent of colder weather, however, came Fate in the form of Technical Mechanics — and no Phil lectures. Thirty-Three buckled down again. Officers were elected. President, Sheridan,- Vice-President, Shinkle,- Secretary, Sparrow,- Treas- urer, Frentzel; Historian, Meyer, RD,- and Athletics Representative, Graham, W.S. The Second Class was ready to settle down and await developments, and the Yale, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, and Navy games — all trips, and all, with the possible exception of Yale, which was old stuff " to us now, promising much excitement, in addition to the games, of course. But we were wrong, it seems. No cadet can ever forget the deep tragedy which touched our lives that golden Autumn day at Yale when gallant little Sheridan was carried off the field — mortally injured. The grief which palled our hearts over the untimely end of that brilliant career held us bowed and list- less for days. Then came the smashing realization that this was not the fighting Army spirit of which he had always been the personification. So it was that another great Army team, backed by the Corps, fighting for him, rolled over one of the gre atest Irish teams ever to come out of Indiana. The Army carried on! All was not yet over, however. A rejuvenated Navy team which had just downed Penn was clamoring for Army ' s hide. Two thousand Middies paraded up and down captured Franklin Field PdSe Three Hundred Eishty-nine u (J iH 1 W |M-NI lil l( r ] SECOND BAHALION, CLASS OF 1933 chanting " Where ' s Army? Where ' s Army? " That bell, which for ten years had been silent, was shined and ready. But one week later, as the shadows lengthened over Yankee Stadium, the Twelve FHundred Mule Team, in the words of one of her distinguished old grads, replied: " Here ' s the Army! — Now where the hell ' s the Navy! " For months after that great victory Navy bathrobes and sweaters continued to swell the trunk rooms already groaning from last year s cache. Then — the surprise. With the opening of the new Visitors ' Room in South Barracks came the presentation to the Corps of a beautiful sterling silver punch bowl — the gift of the Mothers of Nineteen Thirty-Three. All unknown to us, our Mothers had subscribed to the fund for us. Mothers are wonder- ful people. So we came to Christmas Leave. Most of us, unless our homes were somewhere close at hand, spent the eleven days in New York, Washington, or Points East, striving manfully to recapture that Furlo ecstasy. But all in vain. It is fairly impossible to concentrate eighty odd days into eleven. And so we returned to our rock-bound home, little the wiser and a great deal the poorer, to find a new year, 1932, confronting us, and three hundred and fifty-five days until the next leave. Throughout the dark winter months, our weekends were enlivened by the performances of our class at the gym. Yet in spite of all they could do, time went by like a six months slug. Never were the hours longer, the nights blacker. At last light began to show above the far hills at breakfast, and the Corps awaited a bigger and better Hundredth Night Show, which proved to be all that was expected. Dan McGrew again was excellent, and Marshall ' s music, as well as his acting, was a great factor in the success of the Show. Once more, it was Spring, and many a Second Classman pined for the Furlo that was not to be. Once more, Thirty-Three shone on the fields of sport, once more we went to doughboy drill. Star- gazing, mooning — but at last, June Week. In a few days, the Corps, to the tune of " Dashing White Sergeant, " will swing out on the Plain to bid farewell and Godspeed to those we ' ve known for three years, and before long a new class will have arrived to fill up the blank files. With a true regret we are bound to realize that it ' s practically over now,- this Second Class Year. As we look back on it, we can truly say that it ' s been a great year — a full year. We ' ve had our heart-aches, our joys, our tragedy, and our comedy. We ' d never exchange the memory of it for any price, yet there are few who ' d ever go through it again. Why? Because, in a few days we II hear: " Thirty-Three, take charge! " — and it will be exactly three hundred and sixty-five days to the minute!

Some of us were deluded into believing that Yearling Dead-beat really would be a dead-beat, but that assumption was soon proved false. We had to get up at seven o ' clock instead of six, but the rest of the day we worked hard enough to make up for all the extra rest we got. It is true that in the words of the estimable Mr. Dupont, of whom we have all heard so much, " one lets his brain rest in the summer, " but his brain does all the resting that is done. We rode, shot, learned to dance — if it can be called learning to swing a hundred and sixty pounds of stiff muscle around — and went to parades. Some of us, of course, went to hops too, and all of us went on guard. The main object in Summer Camp, however, was to see how few demerits it was possible to get and do no work. We found to our disgust that the supply of demerits in the bag of the Tactical Department was almost inexhaustible. FHaving so large a supply on hand, the Department was of course anxious to get rid of a few of them, and dispensed them liberally. However, Dead-beat came to an end, and while we have never seen any Fourth of July reveille parade except our own, we are all of us willing to bet that there have been few more beautiful, colorful, or daring exhibits than that one. That night the first class came home — people with whom we were not at all well acquainted, and the thought of whose advent rather disturbed us. We found, how- ever, that they were much better than our fears had made them out to be. In fact they weren t bad at all. Moreover, it took a lot of work off our hands, and gave us more time to play. We thank them much for that, and for the way they bore with us during that first blush of our joy at being, if not true cadets, at least " recognized plebes. " All during this time we were growing more and more to realize what being classmates meant, and we were coming to the feeling that though there were many different personalities among us, they all made up one body. We saw where the rough edges of the class had been lopped off or pressed out and we were glad of it. We saw the new plebe class, and we rejoiced that we were no longer as they Page Three Hundred Ninety-ti o I lii i ' I.I I ' " Wl FIRST BATTALION, CLASS OF 1934 are. We worked pretty hard at being yearlings, and we think that we succeeded in being as noisy and objectionable as any other yearling class. We went out into the hills, Fired at each other with blanks, that is, those of us who forgot about cleaning our rifles fired them, and won and lost great victories near Lusk Reservoir. AH this, however, was just preparation for what was to come later on the march to the environs of Round Pond and Popolopen. When that epic campaign began it found us all ready for anything that might happen, and we went out to do or die for the Red or the Blue. By the way, some of us came a lot nearer dying than doing in the process, and there were rumors that one of us made a far too intimate enemy of a machine gun. Still, the maneuvers were really interesting, and the hike turned out pretty well for most of us. After the hike was over, and the tumult and shouting had died, we realized that the beginning of the Academic year was at hand, and we girded up our loins and got ready to work. Right from the start we saw that the Yearlings of the year before had not been jesting when they intimated that plebe year was the biggest dead-beat we ' d ever get in the first two years of our stay here. The Academic Department had blood in its eye, and a yen for putting more notches in the edge of its grade books, and most of us felt for a while as if we were going to furnish a notch apiece. There was always football, however, to take our minds out of the slough of despond and raise us to the heights where we knew no fear. We found out that we had much underrated the ability of certain members of our class to play football. Kopcsak, Brown, Johnson, Jablonski, and Winn upheld the honor of our class, Brown and Kopcsak being mainstays of the team that stepped on Notre Dame and Navy. The time was growing short before Christmas Leave, and we began to forget a little that we had to study. We even forgot that the writs lay between us and the road home. Some of us forgot that too long, and didn ' t go home at all, but most of us got up and left, thinking, however, not so much of Christ- mas Leave as of Furlough — not so far away now as it had been. We went on Christmas Leave, but we went with the yell ' Yea, Furlo! " in our hearts and almost in our throats. " Yea, Furlo " — the very sound of the yell is music to the ears of a yearling, and the thought of a furlough is like the memories of a heaven we knew before our birth, with all due apologies to Words- worth ' s ode. FHowever, between the end of Christmas and the beginning of furlough, much remained to be done. We had to show the Second Class that they didn ' t have a mortgage on all the brains or lliil! i Page Three Hundred Ninety-three SECOND BATTALION, CLASS OF 1934 all the brawn in the Corps. We had to show the Tactical Department how to manage and how to control a platoon when the machine gun bullets and " the big ones and little ones " dropped on our forces in the great sand box campaigns. In this same interregnum between Christmas and Furlough we had a chance to say good-bye to Messieurs Giraud et Dupont, and to curse in passing " the Integral Calculus ' and the " Theor of Least Squares " — whatever that may be. We had a chance to stand in front of the French Monument and throw things at it — a chance longed for on two counts, ft had never saluted us, and we didn t like it anyway. We also revived the " Catapult Club, " whose inception lay in the riding we had done in summer camp, and whose charter member had justified its name by sailing eight or ten feet through the air with a look of intense disgust and dismay disfiguring his countenance. We found out, supposedly, how to make maps of all kinds of rolling and rocky terrain, ambling through the hills counting steps as we went. That wasn ' t so bad though, because we could fee! the pulse of spring and we knew that summer was not far behind. The blaze of green across the hills,- the misty afternoons of May, when ail troubles vanished in one great laziness — these told us too that in spite of parades, of drills, of writs, in spite of ever thing, we were about to go on furlough. Perhaps it will be a snare and a delusion, but we are inclined to think that those who call it so are only envious, like a certain fox in a certain fable. Finally the year is ending, as it began, in June Week — the Alpha and Omega of Cadet life. Before long we shall stand for the last time on Parade with the First Class. We shall forget whatever petty differences existed, and wish them well when they go front and center to review the Corps. We shall be sorry to see them go, and we shall feel once more the thrill that comes to ever man who realizes that he is a part of a whole more important than himself. We shall separate for Furlough yet be more closely bound together by our very separation. We shall know that we are at last a class! 1 » ' i Page Three Hundred Ninety-Four I ALABAMA Walter E.

Lawlor (Continued on Page 431) Page Three Hundred Ninety-five W if FIRST BATTALION, CLASS OF 1935 THE CLASS OF 1935 SINCE Colonel Thayer organized the Academy in its present form Fourth Class years have differed very little one from the other. Adaptation to changing conditions is so very slow that actions seem to be in the manner sanctioned by tradition. Though the variation is slight from year to year, each class develops a personality and individuality of its own. Its attitudes and activities recorded from year to year show its development and leave its history. On July 1, 1931, about three hundred men had assembled in and around West Point. Before noon on that day each had, with some inward apprehension but outward assurance, taken the final step toward becoming a cadet. We were met by a number of very austere cadets who emitted a continual flow of suggestions about our posture, corrections of our facial expressions and demands for various bodily contortions. Almost immediately we began to amass large quantities of equipment, and to excrete large quantities of perspi- ration. During the intervals between the accumulation of equipment, we were initiated into the minor mysteries of close order drill. Later on e were fed. Some allege it was only a tour of the mess hall; others admit having gained some slight nourishment. Our labors continued. We drilled again, we altered our postures, we folded our socks and we signed various dotted lines. In the evening we made some strange military ablutions, and retired to a bed of aches, pains, and fantastic impressions. During that longest of days we were changed from men to " beasts. " Bestial as we were, we entered upon plebe year with that " intensive period of preliminary train- ing ' known as " Beast Barracks. During these two months we were confused and uncomfortable in our new environment. We found ourselves running, drilling, bellowing and even eating a few insignifi- cant morsels allowed us by the austere gentlemen cadets. Weapons were put in our hands and we learned to execute " high port and cross over " (or was it " high port and pass out " ), " as skirmishers, and other strenuous military maneuvers, all of which closely verged on work. The Yearling detail was eventually superseded by even sterner gentlemen who had a consuming curiosity about our reasons for coming to West Point, our impressions of the place and our innermost thoughts. tl Page Three Hundred Ninety-six SECOND BATTALION, CLASS OF 1935 These new ones, in truth, held far wider horizons for the capdcity of the fourth class to labor. We perforce extended ourselves to even greater efforts than before. Soldiers must swim and gentlemen must dance. Since Congress has expressed itself quite pointedly on the subject, we are as much one as the other,- so we swam and we danced and found it a small diver- sion from our toil. All things must end. The Eternal Now of Beast Barracks became at last the day of the " Fourth Class Practice March " — the plebe hike. The " beasts " became beasts of burden and we marched gaily to Popolopen. Field maneuvers, indigestion, and details involving shovels failed to depress us. We found the hike very enjoyable after the rigors of barracks. We knew, however, that such conditions could not last. In fact " the powers " promised us a reversion to our more subdued state. Immediately upon our return from untamed Popolopen a new and elevated species of beasts known as " the Cows " emerged from the jungles of furlough and demanded service. We appeased them, some- what, with prodigious efforts to make them comfortable. We were very much in demand, in fact no one could see enough of us, nor engage too much of our time. With the decline of this trunk-room bondage the approach of the academic year was noticed by some canny lad, and the new menace was in its turn viewed with alarm. This became a new factor with which to cope. Life became suddenly very much more complex, but we were becoming accus- tomed to unique procedure, and the section-room system was accepted phlegmatically. In the midst of our new mental exertions the physical was not neglected. In fact, the cultivation of the body became a thing of system, done regularly and with a military cadence. Each day we dis- ported in the gymnasium in pursuit of proficiency in divers exercises. When we had finally acquired sufficient dexterity, we were exhibited to the world at large during June Week. Each Saturday the depressing returns from the Battle of Tenths were tempered by the exhilarations of the football games. We cheered the team, and performed plebeian antics as manifestations of our loyalty. We enjoyed ourselves enormously playing soldier in New FHaven, Pittsburgh and New York. The foot- ball trips were brief moments of entirely new sensations, moments whose anticipations sustained many more weary ones. And then some of us were able to insure our personal aggrandizement at the expense of the Naw. Pase Three Hundred Ninely-seven THIRD BATTALION, CLASS OF 1935 A short period of extreme acddemic stress finally became the only remaining hazard before our First West Point Christmas. We attacked the writs with desperation or ambition, according as were the conditions of our academic consciences. With the last obstacle finally behind us, we embarked on the long-a waited Christmas holidays. There were ten of them, each with innumerable activities, and a five-fifty reveille. We drank deeply of all the delights afforded us, not only to quench but to satiate if possible future cravings. O. A. O ' s, lesser lights and just femmes were about the place in large numbers but we were present in droves. The very hordes of us never before seemed so appalling. For the first time we were able to see our colleagues with their plebeian cloaks removed; we learned to know them as classmates. The rest of the Corps returned abruptly on the eleventh day, and we sought sanctuary in the chapel until supper formation. We were, however, to find that the Yearlings were all in love, the second classmen had even worse hangovers, and the first class too exhausted to be but mildly interested in us. The reaction came, nevertheless, as the older ones recuperated, and we found ourselves once more very plebeian. We were crawled with increasing intensity approaching as a limit the hysteria of June week. The regular and somber period, in which we next found ourselves, was an almost unbroken succes- sion of academic efforts culminated by a recurrence of the writs, for again the Academic Departments visited upon us their extreme test. The very fact that nothing extremely startling was happening seemed to augur well that we were on the last lap. With the goal in view we could hardly weaken so we braced and waited for the end. — Recognition, Yearling Camp, and the new plebes coming to take our places.

L._ WAR CLASSES " THE World War drained men from the Academy so rapidly ' that for a while it seemed that it would be turned into a short course training camp. hHowever, after the war, order gradually came from chaos and the Corps went back to its original form. Many men came back to the Point after the war to finish their education. It is to these men of this period of transition that we owe a debt for carrying on the spirit and traditions of West Point. i THE CATHOLIC CHAPEL FROM the standpoi ' C-, - ' . to -r.c dnr;. 8322AJD 5IAW ylbiqei 02 ymsbbsA 3rlj moil nsm b3nibib ibW blioW 3HT " 6 oJni bsmuJ sd bluow Ji jeHj bsmssa Ji slirlw 6 lol JbHj ' isbio 6W 3rlj i b ,isv3woH .qm6D gninibiJ 32tuod horlz sJi oJ dobd Jnsw aqioD srij bne BObHo monl sm6D YUeubbig 16W 3Hj I3jl6 Jnio 3f|j oJ l36d smbD n3m ynbM .rrnol Ibnigiio o boiisq 2iHj 1o nsm sesrl] oi zi j| .noiJbDubs lisHj Hainil oJ bnb Jiiiqa 3fij no gnivn lol Jdsb b 3wo sw ibrlj noiJianbiJ .Jnio J23W io anoiiibbiJ i| ( THE ARMY MUTUAL AiD ASSOCIATION IN times gone by insurance companies considered Army Officers poor risks and refused to insure them or else charged them extra premiums. A group of Army Officers, seeing the need of immediate help for their families in emergency, instituted this concern in 1879. Among its early members were Generals Philip H. Sheridan, R. C. Drum, G. W. Davis, Arthur McArthur, W. R. Shaffer, S. B. M. Young, and Emory Upton. The undertaking being largely a matter of experiment, an assessment plan comparable to " Term. Insurance " was adopted and remained in effect until 1897, when the Association, having proven its worth, was reorganized as a " Whole Life " institution, with insurance on the " Ordinary Life " plan. For over half a century, this organization, constituted and directed by its Army Officer membership, has provided Army Officers with life insurance at low rates, has consistently made immediate payments of benefits, one-half being transmitted by wire and one-half by mail. This ordinary or whole life plan of insurance is the best type for salaried men. Cash surrender privileges can be had in case of retirement or separation from the Army. The strongest advocates for the Association are its members and the widows it has helped. The Reserve has had a gradual and steady growth. The increases in members have conformed closely to the increases in the Army since the inception of the institution. Those insured are select risks of varied age, rank and duty in the Army. The mortality rate has averaged low. The age of members has held comparatively young. Professional Actuaries are employed from time to time as needed to study the mortality trend of members. These reports indicate a good future for the concern. There are now nearly 7,000 members. An outstanding feature of the Association ' s work is its help in preparing fhe pension and other claims for the bereaved parents, widows and families of its members. This service, built up through years of experi- ence, assures the relatives of members that their rights as to Government allowances will be protected. 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. Every eligible officer and cadet should become a member and support the work of this Association, first, as a matter of good business; second, as a matter of esprit de corps.

Every Camel is fragrant with the cool, mild flavor of choice sun -ripened tobaccos, fres j with natural moisture. Camels are never parched or toasted — the Reynolds method of scientifically applying heat guarantees against that. They reach you in the air-sealed Camel Humidor Pack fresh and in prime smoking condition no matter where you ' re stationed. Desert wind won ' t dry them, nor a pea soup fog make them soggy. Give your throat a twenty-four hour leave from the harsh hot smoke of parched dry- as-dust tobaccos. Switch to fresh Camels for just one day. Then quit them — if you can. R. J.

These years of invention, experiment and development have built up a fund of knowledge for which there is no substitute. Modified by results proven or disproven in actual practice, this wealth of information is utilized in the design and manufacture of every piece of Strowger Automatic equipment and its great value is apparent in the reliable and accurate operation of many thousands of lines of this apparatus in daily use in all countries of the world. Installed in arsenals, armories, proving grounds and ordnance depots, as well as on capital ships, cruisers and aeroplane carriers, Strowger Automatic equipment is doing its share in upholding the high traditions of the United States Forces on land and sea — which means that It must never jaU, even under the most difficult and un- usual conditions. It is this ability to " come through " in an emergency, as well as its more prosaic qualities of rugged durability and long life, that has definitely es- tablished the superiority of Strowger equipment through- out the world.

A thousand or more lads like yourself, now harbored ' neath the sheltering arms of a stern Mother of Men. No hardships too severe for you to bear — no relentless discipline could break your spirit! And now, that stern Mother proudly holds you in a last fond embrace and bids you " Farewell. " You conquered ! Through the open gates of Life you bravely go, girdled with the armor plate of Mars. From all sides enemy shafts of temptation, sorrow, yes, even despair will hurl them- selves in fury at you, to bring you down in the death of failure or disgrace. Be always on your guard!
