Slowly and gradually, yet unceasingly, changes have been wrought moulding into West Point the massive granite beauty which we know today. It is difficult to imagine how the plain must have looked a hundred years ago; more difficult still to visualize m it in the future. Even vithin our own four years we have seen new buildings rise to change the panorama of the plain To the hope of keeping always, graven here within these pages, the West Point which the Class of Nineteen Hundred Thirty-eight has known, let us dedicate this volume, never ceasing to remember the glorious heri- tage of the past, yet returning ever gladly to the scenes of our cadet days, to the true, authentic setting for these four inspiring years and for memories we cherish which can never, never change !

In recent years this popularity has received new impetus from the great degree of perfection in the use of color which the technique has sustained at the hands of Rudolph Ruzicka. The 1938 Howitzer has selected this medium for a portfolio of West Point because it seems to possess qualifications singularly appropriate both as regards color and the quality of terse veracity so characteristic of the subject. That Mr. Ruzicka is the one man most competent of executing this commission is generally conceded by all authorities. Holding the ranking position in his art, he has been awarded the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Graphic Arts, and is recognized as the leading woodcut artist of America. The Howitzer considers itself fortunate in being able to assist at the inception of this, a new chapter in the art lore of West Point, and a new addition to the greatly admired work of Rudolph Ruzicka. won n CUTS FORT PUTNAM historic relic of the Revolution dominates the West Point scene THE ADMINISTRATION BUILUING from whose medieval halls emanate ihe guiding policies of West Point life WASHINGTON HALL hniises that aH impnrlant iiisliliition the Cadet Mess THE CADET CHAPEL rises mujeslitally from tlie liills above Ihc plain CULLUM HALL is tliP uenler of llie social aclivilics of the Corps Administration Jghest in rank, in the hierarchy of the United States Army, is its Commander-in-Chief, The President.

Beukema THE tremendous importance of the Academic Board cannot be encompa.s.sed by a .simple recital of its official duties. .Vlthouf li it.s juri.sdiction is in theory limited to matters of scholastic importance, its actual power extends in .some manner to every phase of cadet activity. The far-reachinj, ' influence of the Board has its roots in the respect commandetl by its individual members. All of these venerable officers have records of many years of iiutslaiHliii , ' ser ice to tlicir cnuiitrv. The Chairman of the Board is the Superintendent of the .Vcadeinv, its mend)ers are all heads nf (l(|):irt- ments, men who, for the most part, have dedicated the balance of their active service to the creation of future ofhccrs. It is not to be iniaf ineil, then, that these nliicers could confine their thoughts, aspirations and efforts to .so narrow a sphere as the charting of a course of study for cadets. On the contrary they are most active and ob.servant, at all times evidencing a pro- found knowledge of, and interest in, the affairs of the Corps. This familiarity with the ways of the Corps enables them to evaluate every occurrence and trend with reference to its ultimate effects and to influence the actual cour.se of events in the best interests of West Point, and of the tradition which it represents. ' { ' he . cademic Board is concerned with the crea- tion of men as well as of minds. In their lofty sanctu- ary, in the presence of the World ' s ine (Jreatest Warriors looking down from the marble numtelpiece, are forged the policies which are to build character, morale, esprit atid honor. Here is molded the plastic clav. here the timber hewn, here the sounding metal beaten, here the shining steel is tempered. 35 Department of Engineering Col. Mitchell, Professor Capt. Smith Lt. Sykes Lt. Kromer Capt. Osborne, Assistant Professor Lt. Daley Lt. Wilson Lt. Saimt " RED CHALK for compression, blue for tension and yellow for external forces. " Thus we were greeted by the Department of Engi- neering whose course besides Civil Engineering not only embraces a general review of all the mathematics, physics and philosophy of other years, but also Fortification, Military History, and Military Engineering as well. " You may not be able to recall it offhand, but you always will have a book in which you can look it up. " Our Civil Engineering course is an excellent foundation for any con- struction work which we might be called upon to supervise in our service. In it we sheared our rivets and bent our beams; we computed our stresses and lost tenths on our strains. We sunk foundations, built bridges, and cursed dams, pouring enough reinforced concrete to cover the Parade Ground to a depth of 3.46.5 feet — only on paper, of course. Fortification taught us how to make ourselves as inconspicuous as possible, not only on the battlefield but in the classroom as well. We read out our eyes in Military History, to wallow in the swamps of Mantua, starve on the march to Russia, and trip over the ridges of Gettysburg, writing lengthy monographs while the scenery shifted. WTio will forget " the brave red who never run " and how they counted trees on the majestic heights of Booby ' s Bluff? We realize now how much the Engineering Department taught us to think. We might have realized this sooner had we had time — to think. . f . MITCHELL 56 nepartment of Law MANY have been tlio resplciuicnt sliave-tails who on reporting to tlieir Coinnianding Ofiiccrs liavc found amoni, ' otlicr sudden responsi- l)ilities the onerous duties of Defense Counsels or I ' roseeuting Attor- neys at forthcoming trials. Each one of them, as he unjiaeked his trunk, must have mentally blessed the Academic Board and the Department of Law. The Law Department is persistent in its efforts to gi (- a funda- mental course in ( " on.stitutional and Military Law with a maximum of classroom discussion and practical experience. We pondered concrete examples, sometimes actual, sometimes highly imaginary, to fill out the abstract principles of our study assignments. During the course each of us had his opportunity to take part in a classroom trial. We " objected " and " overrided " judiciously and when asked for our authority, we sagely placed a finger on McKi ' lvey and said, " In here, somewhere. " We learned to a ()id the pitfalls and utilize the loopholes in the law. Near the end of the year, we received the finishing touches of the Law Course when we attended an actual Court Martial where the law in operation was observed and later discussed. With merely a year of Law, we do not consider ourselves experienced lawyers, but we do feel that when our time comes to serve on a Court Martial, we shall at least know the language and where to look for the rest — without our lucky [)ennies.

Seaw ' HEN June Week brought an end to the academic terrors of Plebe year we sighed lustily with relief. Naive and simple as we were, we gullibly thought the worst was over. It was over — over for the summer. Yearling year brought the History course and appointments with the Eye Clinic. No matter how many dates, facts, commas or periods we memorized, the History course was truly interesting and instructive. We transferred from book to memory the political and social trends of the last six centuries, all the while burning the after-taps oil. Those of us who were especially adept, had opportunity to delve into the contradictory history of the Far East while we were poring over the Written Reviews in December. We stressed our memories and strained our eyes, but we did garner a store of historical knowledge of which we were justly proud. It was not for another year that we again encountered the Department. During a month of Bookkeeping we found that we were not required to use our LT. rOL. BEl ' KE L memories — we had to use our late-lights I Government gave us no relief, but we did learn much about the governmental meth- ods, and principles of our coun- try as well as of other nations. . fter a much needed respite at Christmas, we returned to find Economics our last hurdle. We di.scovcred a practical applica- tion of the Law of Diminishing Returns — the more we studied, the less we could remember. nepartnient of Militcii y Hy iene ONE would think that the task of ki-oping eiijhteeii hundred energetic youths free from aches and pains would be sufficient for any group of men. The medi- cal officers of the Department of Military Hygiene do more than that. Theirs is a double task. Not only must they listen to our hypochondriacal tales at sick call and mend our broken bones, but they also must con- nive to keep us from sliding under the general anesthetic of a heavy dinner and an early reveille during the early afternoon classes in Hygiene. They do both with equal adroitness. It is interesting to di.scover what makes a complicated mechanism work. It is even more interesting to learn how the human body functions. This is exactly what the Military Hygiene Department taught us. It gave us a sufficient background to be able to understand the rudiments of human anatomy and physiology. We learned what happens when we pronate and supinate the forearm, how the adaptation of the upper limb to prehensile purposes came about and amid a host of other tilings, how to care for our- selves beyond the proverbial apple a day. Above all we learned that the genii of the upper sections are closer to lunacy than the rest of us. roi. WEED C. PT. G.iRDNEK, Col. Snyder, Ca Col. Pf-EFFEH, Col.

Van Syckle THE Department of Ordnance and Gunnery has been completely successful if its only achievement were to make us comprehend the amazing complication of the firing of a gun and to make us appre- ciate the technical knowledge necessary in its development. Of course it has done more than that. It has given us an understanding of ballistics, explosives, fire, design of guns, and military motors. With its theoretical work it has mixed in practical shop work in machine tools, grinding and turning, and heat treatments of metal. It has presented numerous lectures and exhibits, and climaxed the course with a highly interesting trip to the Aberdeen Proving Ground. The instructors of the Department have done more than teach us what makes a gun fail or why a stereoscopic sight nmst be used in anti-aircraft firing. Through their efforts and research we have been helped inunensely in the selection of cars, a difficult problem had it not been for the suggestions we received. We have but one regret. Ours was the last class to have Colonel Hayes as the Professor of Ordnance and Gunnery, as his tour of duty at West Point has ended. It is unfortunate that the succeeding classes will be unable to know him as we have.

Fnrloni li-dazed, we .suddenly found ourselves immersed in an abnormal solution of elements, comi)ouuds, reactions, laws, and a di.sconragingly iuige list of equa- tions. We recall anxiously gazing at tlu ' windows of the lecture- room, attempting to ])r((li(t a i(ct ire or a hoard-light. Laboratory attendances were always welcome. Toward the end of the term, we studied the theory of atomic structure, and were surprised to learn how many things one eouhl get fniiii the periodic table. In the spring .semester we tackled electricity. We followed Ohm ' s Law through series generators. Although most of the course was devoted to direct currents and magnetism, we sampled a little of alternating currents and railio. -Vs in the chemistry course, regular attendances were interspersed with numerous laboratory periods. The Chemistry Department gave us one of the most interesting courses in our West Point sojourn. Perhaps its appeal lay in our knowledge that what we were studying and painfully s|)ecking was valuable in leading us into the realms of scientific splendor where electronic holes which " aren " t there any more " cai)tured o ir inter- est.

" For two years with the Department of English these were our passwords, watchwords, and bywords as we wrote onward and onward. How Httle our efforts seemed to please ! Papers returned covered with cryptic conmients in red pencils; we tried again. But as the year wore on the red notations became fewer and we realized with forgivable pride that we were learning to write intelligibly and to the point. Between sessions in writing and grammar came Colonel Wheat ' s inimitable lectures, to which we looked forward with pleasant anticipation. Our first year of English left us well prepared to turn out literary masterpieces — without argumentative details — for the Tactical Department during Yearling Summer. It was not until our Third Class year that we came actually to know and appreciate the Department. Devoted chiefly to literature and secondly to composition, the course gave us an imaginative outlet. We lost ourselves COL. WHE. T in the novels, essays, and poetry of the masters. At frequent intervals we tried our own hands at literary composition, book reviews, and speech making. Discussion in the classroom of contemporary drama interested every one of us. Despite our voiced expressions of relief, most of us were secretly sorry when June brought the last of our classes with the Department of English. nepartment of Modern Lcini iici es ANDREW JACKSON, in his first message to Congress, said of West Point: " This institution has already exercised the liappi- (. ' st influence upon the moral and inlelleetual character of our army and such of the graduates as from various causes may not pursue the profession of arms will be scarcely less useful as citizens. " We wonder if this influence would he so happy or the gradu- ates of the Military Academy COL. .MORRI.SON so useful were not their basically scientific education enlightened here and there with the cultural influence exerted by a study of Modern Languages. Only a few seeds of French and Spanish may have laboriously entere d our already overworked systems, yet who knows when one of these might sprout to the best advantage. " Avez-vous des questions? " or " Hay preguntas? " , may have troubled our slumbers, but when confronted by a situation where some knowledge of French or Spanish is required, our small store will prove valuable. Then too, France and Spain, in spite of their confusing histories, open the door to everlasting grandeur through the medium of their respective languages. The culture of other nations may be ours for the taking. Certainly our days in classrooms with " le Frog " and " el Spic " have not been spent in vain. Lt. Hannioan, Lt. Nesditt, Cai ' T.

" While Mechanics, Hydraulics, Thermodynamics and Aerodynamics filled our benumbed brains, we wondered whose wild expansion of the imagination ever conjured such an idyllic misnomer. Though we did work hard, we found a course interesting in content, broad in scope, and instructive to the extreme. Were it not for the principles which we acquired so thoroughly in the Philosophy course, First Class year would have been a welter of abstract terms. We may have free-bodied incessantly, perspired with Bernoulli and his theorem and slaved over P T diagrams, but we gained much more than a working knowledge of higher Physics. The interesting and practical laboratory periods of the Philosophy Department were made possible only through the tireless efforts of Colonel Carter and his instructors. They constructed the weirs and designed the wind-tunnel, borrowed prime movers for the pumps and overhauled discarded steam-engines that we might practice the theo- ries of the classroom to our great advantage. We owe the Department of Philosophy much, not only for what we learned so thoroughly nor for the lectures so opportunely placed, but also for the lessons they taught us in playing fair. u DepcU tnient ol Physiis NEWTON " (lisct)vt ' rc ' il tlio most iiiiportaut law of physics when au apple tell on his head as he lay uiiiler a tree. We (iiscovcreti most of the laws of physics — were printed in italics in the textbook of tlie Department of Physics. Little brother of the Department of I ' hilosophy, this department gave us a well rounded foundation in elementary mechanics and electricity on which we were to build hii iier towers of learning during Second Class year. Our Physics course included I he a|)plication of the equations of work, enerjfy and momentum and the study of sound, light, magnetism, and electricity. Here we first encountered F=Ma, aflfectionately called the law of parental equality. Though the problems we solved were many, it took most of us until Christmas to learn that the slide rule was not a straight-edge with a handy extension rod. The laboratory periods of the department were the first encountered by our class. To our surprise we found how interesting practical appli- cation of cut and dried principles could be. We twanged tuning forks, stirred calorimeters, and balanced weights. We tinkered with am- meters, voltmeters, and resistance boxes, and tied unorthodox sheep- shanks in mazes of wire. " When to " g ' and not to ' g ' " continually bothered us, but we left with the assurance that " all the answers are on the slide rule. " Lt. Col. Counts, Professor C.vPT. Sp.

" When we hear these words from our first Com- manding Officer, how glad we will be that our Plebe Surveying Course required us to speck the details of Traversing, Angular Measurement, Back- sighting, and Triangulation. Yearling Fall found us chasing contours around the Lusk Reservoir and learning the intricacies of Map Reading— learning how to compute the time required for a troop of cavalry and two battalions of infantry to proceed from Fort Sill to Summit Mountain. As " cows " coming home from Furlough, we began to count the days until the end of Second Class Drawing, only to find that the most interesting COL. . LEX. NDER and useful part of the drawing course was still ahead of us — Engineering and Architectural Drawi ng. At the final cry of " Last four .sections put away your work, " a few of u.s obeyed reluctantly, many joyously, hut all departed from the Drawing Academy for the last time with but one thought— to bequeath our poop- sheets to the Yearlings. I 46 Department of IVlcithematic RUMORS of the emphasis placed on Mathematics at the Academy reached most of us even hefore our appointments liad been confirmed. Startin in Scptemher with College Algehra and Solid Geometry, we found the rumors to lie ery true. When the " Ides of January " arrived, we were certain that the Department of Mathematics was in earnest. Even after he- LT rol. .lONE? coming accustomed to " the system " and settling down to a comparatively orderly routine, we found that notwithstanding any mathematics we had pre iously learned, the Department was out to teach us more. Diu-ing the second term of Plehe year, we were introduced to Trigonome- trv and Analytic Geometry in the same relentless manner. June brought iiTKitiuT wholesale priming of the lower .sections. With memories of Yearling summer filling our minds, we stalked Integral and Differential Calculus the following year and found to our surprise that we were actually learning a great deal. The course in Mathematics was difficult for most of us, but we willingly admit that it did teach us to think clearly, study carefully, and " reason to a logical conclusion. " I.T. Wkntwouth. Cpt.

Ryder, Capt. Swift, Capt. Holbrook, Capt. BowEa THE Tactical Department . . . that rugged band of radio raiders ... is to West Point what the infantry is to the Army. Sometimes, in our chagrin at losing another day of Christmas Leave or that long-coveted week-end, we forget that they too are human and enjoy the humorous side of life as much as we . . . at the proper time, of course. Their headquarters are filled with assorted " quill " and " .slugs " of all shapes and sizes, but they have managed to convince us that as long as we are not too indifferent, we have nothing to fear . . . well, not much, anyway. After the morning ' s " skin " .search is over, the T. D. " s day is not yet ended. Under its supervision, " Doughboy Drill " as well as the Tactics and Tech- nique of all branches of the service are administered to the Corps of Cadets. Then there are tours as Officer in Charge that pop up occasionally. But this duty is not without interest, in spite of the disciplin- ary measures that sometimes must be resorted to. Many amusing incidents have been recounted that have occurred dviring the progress of the O. C. from Ice Rink to CuUuni, (irant Hall to Hotel. Of course. after-taps and reveille inspections are disturbing to the best of them, to say nothing of us, the victims. Nothing is so disconcerting as to rush out to reveille with pajamas plainly outlined beneath a half-but- toned overcoat and to encounter the watchdog of the Corps beginning a scrutinizing inspection-trip down the front rank. However, the longer we remain at the Academy, the clearer becomes our perspecti ' e of what the Department of Tactics strives to accomplish. To the plebe it appears as a ferocious monster that delights in watching its victims suffer as they grind out weary miles. To the yearling it becomes a vicious dog which remains quiet until someone trespasses on one of its cherished bones. The Second and First Class- men realize its true purpose and in most cases try to profit l y the lessons taught on that gravelled plot surrounded by Central Barracks. The Department of Tactics has no desire to stifle initiative nor even our popular pastime of taking chances. It only strives to develop officers and gentle- men in fact, as well as by Act of Congress. Jt8 The Battalion Board " THE following iiameil cadets will report to the I5at- talion Board in the office of tlie IJattalioii ( ' oiiiiiiaiid- ers at 4:15 today. " How frequently lias this oj)eiiing phrase met our eyes as we hurriedly scanned the Dailv Hulletiii just before dinner. Oeeasionally we hear from the adjutant ' s deck in the mess hall a sentence imposed l v the Hattalion Boanl. This triuunirate is the hi ;ln ' st triliunal of the ( " adet Corps. Men are summoned before it when ac- cu.sed of the more serious infractions of discipline. Ilaxing receiNcd such a summons, we get out our spooniest uniforms and begin formulating in our minds the most concise and definite [)hra.ses we can think of to serve as high explosive shells in the coming forensic foray with the mentors of the Tactical De- partment. But when we march stiffly into the pres- ence of the Board, our best planned sentences seem to fade away. Explanations are gone, replies are limited to two or three stuttered " Nosirs " or " Yesirs " , and the trial is over. Overwhelmed by the .seeming easualness of the judges, we return to our rooms to await the verdict which will pronounce us free or leave us with hours on the area or days in confinement. In a cadet ' s opinion, a visit to the Battalion Board is a striking example of how not to spend a Friday afternoon. Poise and aplomb vanish fa.ster before the three omnipotcnts than does ice cream on a training table. The courts of the Spanish In |uisition had nothingon the West Point version of a Doge ' s Council. Next week the Board will convene again . . . other cadets will have erred and the endless process con- tinues. As long as there are cadets and Blue Books, so also will there exist Battalion Boards to punish the wayward and prod the indifferent. Even after we have graduated and learned to ap- preciate its true .significance, the Battalion Board will probably continue to haunt our dreams. A more kindly conception of its work will not be po.ssible until we have discarded the inescapable cadet prej- udices and can view our life with the aid of a perspec- tive which time alone can furnish. C.VPT. BOWES LT. COL. BR.VDLEY C. PT SIBERT W Department of Tactics: Athletic DiYision THE field of activity of the Athletic Division of the T. D. is far removed from that of its partner in crime, the " door-banging " division of that selfsame depart- ment. Rather, it is its well-defined task to make the axiom, " Every Man An Athlete " , a reality. Our first contact witli the " g ' m detail " came rather suddenly after our entering West Point. We had barely cleared away the debris from that third trip to the Cadet Store, when they drove us out on the plain for calisthenics. When academics started, the command, " Heads up. Chests up! " drilled into us so well that first summer was even more deeply impressed on our plebeian brains. We learned " guards agin " it " to the meter of bodies thumping on the padded floor of the Wrestling room. On one memorable day we heard the tale of the Terrible Turk, and how blood spattered and bones snapped with reckless abandon because " he weren ' t no gentleman " . Not far away was the Boxing room where once a week we fervently wished that we had prefiotisly acquired the manly art. " To the right! " , and fifty pairs of arms would flay viciously at defenseless par- ticles of air; " Advance!, " and fifty spirit opponents would turn up their heels. But sometimes the heels were our own. But here their work did not end. The administration of the Intramural Program is also consolidated under this division of the Department of Tactics. The aim of this branch can best be expressed by the motto inscribed on the walls of the Cadet Gymnasium : " Upon the fields of friendly strife. Are sown the seeds That, upon other fields, on other days, Will bear the fruits of victory. " AVith this in mind, we pass to the oncoming wearers of the gray, the familiar . . . " NEXT MAX UP " .

Fanfare; and the Corps, with colors flying marches past, straight for a distant saflyport.

Rather, he has devoted his time to wrestling, football, and extra- curricular reading, with occasional time out for necessary studying.

He keeps an eye open for all extracurricular financial opportunities and has seen quite a few. Not easily disturbed, Tish remains dormant until he feels that his rights have been trampled upon, whereupon he throws all caution to the winds.

One month of steady plugging brought October and tlie opening game with Clemson College.

Moments after the opening whistle, the juiigcrnaut which Dick Harlow had pieced together, hegau to roll with a perfection of I timing and deception. Its smartly designed, beauti- fully masked attack of spinners, fakes, and reverses ate huge gaps in our line. The East boasted of no finer team in the first quarter of that game. Un- stoppable, gathering momentum all the while, the Crimson eleven scored on the ninth play. The failure to convert seemed insignificant at the instant. Thereafter the Army team dug in doggedly de- termined that the score should mount no higher. Nor did it, during the remainder of that half. Though committed to the defensive, our men repelled suc- cessive Cantab thrusts, with Little, Rogner, and Sullivan rising to their responsibilities. If the Big Team had been psychic about the Yale contest, so also were they able to diagnose the present outcome. There was no pessimism, no gloom in the Army dressing room. Eleven men knew they could not be beaten, knew they would not leave vanquished. Still as the second half sped onward, even the staunchest rooters had genuine misgivings for John Harvard clung tenaciously to his advantage. Finally that long awaited break came as Foley fumliled on home soil and Ryan recovered. Power- fully our attack began ; slowly it bogged to a stop on the Crimson 6. But the Cantabs were weakening and the Cadets had come to life. Again Harvard fumbled and again Ryan did his bit. Craig ' s running and pass to Samuel made it first down on their 8.

Wilson 309 m shuttled to Long on a deceptive maneuver from kick formation but the sHppery oval became animate to .slitlier from Huey ' s arm to be pounced upon by the green jerseyed Beinor. Two smashes by Simonich and Notre Dame had garnered six tremendous points. Spurred to action by the stunning score, the Big ' I ' eam struck back in a drive which carried to the Irish 30 before an interception ended that particular rally. Thereafter the mighty punts of Stevenson bot- tled up our offensive. So effective was he that the Army rushes aggregated a paltry sixteen yards for the entire game. The second half was a nightmare for the Army en- thusiasts as the rain continued to fall and Stevenson maintained his disheartening work with toe and pig- skin. Notre Dame monopolized the ball, ' tis true, but their superior offen.se was overshadowed by the sheer heroism of as courageous a team as ever represented the Point. Five times the Irish penetrated our five yard stripe; five times an indomitable line rose to heights to hurl back the invader; five times Notre Dame failed to score. Beaten on the scoreboard that team nevertheless displayed those amazing fighting qualities whicli have carried West Pointers to mili- tary greatness. Hartline and Schwenk. ably seconded by Wilson and Samuel, stood out as the greatest de- fensive players on that water soaked field.

Piatt paced the visitors by scoring ' 23 points. But the smooth teamwork of the Army team was not to be denied and the game ended 4 ' 2 to .56 in favor of Army. Brinker and AIcDavid led Army ' s scores with 16 and l ' -2 points, respectively and Jake Saniiiel ' s defensive game was a joy to liehold. Still smarting from their defeat at the hands of the Lord Jeffs last year, the Army casaba tossers came through with a hard, clean-cut victory over .Vmherst this year, the score being 41 -••2;}. Amherst, led by Meyers and Husey. played a smart, deliberate game but it just wasn ' t their day. Army ' s ])erformance in this game was by far its best so far in the season and the teamwork displayed greatly overshad- owed all individual efforts. Amherst marked the turning point in the season; from then on the sched- ule was tough and Penn was no excep- tion. Last year ' s eastern champions, Penn came to West Point fresh from a win over Navy, so our bovs were out to 316 M I II ' ! sliow their worth.

Army started brilliantly and was leading I ' i- ' i after four minutes of play when a basket broke. It was like start- ing another game and, led by the sharp- shooting McKellar, Yale came from behind to win. It was a touch and go game and not until the gun went off did anyone believe that Army was beaten. (icorgetown came as one of the strongest teams in the East but .Vrniy was determined to win this one and (lid. .50-30. Samuel wa.s the baekbone of the defen.se while Brinker and Rogner .scored ' 20 and 10 point.s respectively. The team was itself again and looked lietter than ever. Continuing its pace. Army knocked off Duke, 40 to -20. The Dukes were a little tired from a game with Fordham the night before, but they displayed some flashy basketball and never quit. McDavid led a widely .scattered scoring field with S points to his credit. The following Wednesday Syracuse came down from up-State with a quin- tet which had been beaten only once and then by the undefeated Dart- mouth Champions. The game was rough and every man on both teams had 3 personals on him before the game was over. Although both teams dis- {)layed excellent floorwork, Syracuse found the basket oftener than Army and won 36-31.

The attack was well-fortified with lettermeti — Truxtuii, Clark. M. H., Po-sey, Sherburne, Scott, J. A., Johnson, J.

With this peculiar set-up of one of the strongest attacks and one of the weakest defenses in West Point history, the team played a stiff schedule, in- cluding nearly all of the leading lacrosse teams in the country. In spite of its inexperienced defense, the team ended the season with the enviable record of nine victories and but one defeat — that being lost by a single goal. Army opened the season by defeating Hobart 17-6. The game reaffirmed the excellence of the Army at- tack and pr() ed that the defen.se was not exactly mediocre.

Both teams alternately gained and lost the lead. A fourth period tie was broken with only three minutes left to play when Posey intercepted a Navy pass and scored, thereby winning the game for Army 6-5. Graduation took away many of Army ' s best player.s. However, much good material remains with which to build another great Army lacrosse team in 1!), ' ?8. Charlie Sherburne well deserves the captaincy of the 1938 team. He stands out as one of the best dodgers and most accurate passers on the team. Although he has made his share of scores in the past, SMITH, s. L. many scores by other players have been due to Charlie ' s excellent passing to them on the crease. Named on the . ll-]Metropolitan Team of 1937, he should make the All-American Team for l.)38. When Sherliurne passes to the crease, Elliot Amick is generally there to receive the ball and score the goal. Amick is one of Army ' s most versatile attack men. His shifty dodging and accurate left- or right-handed stick work in addition to natural speed have made him outstanding. He bids fair to continue his scoring record in the future. Bill Gay is one of the key-men of the defense. His ability to handle the stick along with his untiring CONNOR, . . o. ' l ■A m m 322 OIINSON. .1.

Dne to previous experience on the attack, he is well qualified to aitl the defense in clearing out. Conner ' s added experience will make him an iuvahiahle goalie for tlie 1!)I{.S season. .lohnny Finn is one of our finest lacrosse players. Unfortunately, he has not seen mucli action for tlie last two years because of injuries, Imt he will surely he in the fray thisyear. Naturally endowed ithan excellent physique and an ahility to dodge, run, pass, and score, his stick handling is among the best on the squad. I ' at I ' atrick ' s genial Irish nature befits him to l)e a lacrosse player of no mean ability. He can take good-naturedly as well as administer hard knocks. A very nimble runner, he ranks among the best of the dodgers. His stick work is far from mediocre; he has an excellent ojjportunity to shine on Army ' s attack. Smith, W. W. has always had the advantage among lacrosse players because of his pre-academy experience at Severne. He is a remarkable stick handler, both left and ri " ht handed. He is not a nov- 323 SHERBURNE SMITH. W. W CONNER, C. P ice at dodging or running and no douht will star in this year ' s games. Maioney, A. A. is another important defense man. Ever since he broke his nose in the Yale game yearling year, he has been considered one of our hardest fighting men, one who could " take it. " Because of good stick work and defensive ability, he will be in the play often this year. Fillmore Mearns is quick and agile. These qual- ities coupled with his stick work make him a valued player on the Army. Hoisington, P. M. will have to go a long way to fill Tommy Truxtun ' s shoes at center. However, he is the same type of player — fast, aggressive, untiring. He earned a berth on the cham- pionship lacrosse team which played in England last summer and this experience should prepare him for a ])ang-up season this spring. Keller would be a valued player on any attack. He can dodge and han- dle the stick so well that he should give real opposi- tion to our opponents this year. Bradley will be one of our best defen.se men this year. " A " squad material as a yearling, he promises to develop into a superior player by first class year. Brinker came out for lacrosse as a year- ling and in a short time was scoring in some of the major games. His natural ability will place him in the toughest games in the future. Bollard will also be a star of the attack this spring. He has the necessary stick work and speed to go far on the attack.

(Oming from the " ( " ' scjuad of 1!);57 will he the England brothers, Fairlamb, Raleigh, Offers, Smith, S. T., Muller, Hazletine, and many other promising j)layers. With such a fine assortment of players. Army should come out ahead in games with teams like St. John ' s. Johns Hojikins, Rutgers, and Syracu.se. Of course, the team will attempt to make up for the Princeton defeat of last year and will take Nayy along in its stride. No treatise on Army lacrosse is complete without a tribute to ( " oach Touchstone. He is recognized throughout the lacrosse world as an outstanding authority and is the president of the United States Lacrosse Coaches Association. The phenomenal suc- cess of the Army teams since " Touch " came to West Point is definite ])roof of his ability. 3S5 BASEBALL 1937 A mil 8 Yale 1 Princeton 5 Amherst 3 Penn State 6 Syracuse 9 swarthmore SUMMARY Opponents April 17 J April 24 May 1 4 May 5 7 May 8 3 Mav U 8 Army 3 BUCKNELL 2 N.

Hut aside from the fact that it was a Navy game, it was a game which brought out the team- work and excellent organization of the squad. In the first inning Navy sent three men up. Army .set them down: in the .second inning this happened again; and in the third inning the same procedure was rei)eated.

Army was well represented by fifteen picked competitors. Sanborn, the Army strong man, threw the javelin 213 feet 11 inches to win first honors and to set a new Academy record. Klocko, last year ' s Captain, vaulted 13 feet to gain third place and Jackson vaulted 1 ' 2 feet 6 inches for sixth place in the Pole Vault. In the running events, the (|uarter-mile relay team composed of Eaton, Reaves, Catt ' ee, and l{rt wiiing finished third in its heat but faileil to qual- ify for the finals. Eaton and Reaves also ran in the mile relay with Hoyt and Dooley to place sixth in a fast field. ' I ' heir time was 3: ' 27.8. The four-mile relay team composed of Tillson, St. Clair. Schellman and Fraser finished in fifth place with a fast time of 18: ' 24.0, a commendable race when it is noted that Indiana, the winner, set a new world record of 17:10.1. The results were extremely gratifying as adverse weather conditions prevented the squad from 33 gcttitif into form as early as vc would lia i ' liki ' d. On May 1, Army defeated Colj ate I ' niversity H; }.4-iQ} 2 at Hamilton, New York. Sanhorn aj ain took the honors in the javelin throw, to break his previous record, with a distance of ' ■21;) feet (i inches. l{eaves won the lOO-yard and ' •2 ' -2()-yard dashes with the fast tJTnes of !).S and ' 21.7. Katon al.so .set a fast pace to win the quarter-uiile in HI.!). Hyars was the hii, ' h point man for Army with 1, ' 5 points, winning in both hurtlles and placing second in the high jump. Nichols of Colgate just nosed out Schellmaii. to break a lo-year Colgate record, in k fi.O in the mile run. New York University visited West Point May 8, and was defeated 81-45. Byars again took 18 points to lead the Army victors. A slow track prevented any fast times in the running events. However, Army won handily by taking !) first and 10 second places. The following week. May 1.5, Army lost her first meet of the season to the University of Pittsburgh, tile National Intercollegiate Champions, 7 ' 2-.54. The outcome of the meet was in doubt until the last, but Pittsburgh, one of the best balanced college teams in the United States, was clearly superior in the dashes and distance nnis with Ma.son and Woodruff ' , two of the nation ' s best collegiate representatives. Syracuse University, on May ' ii, visited W ' est Point and was defeated 86-10. Katon, in the quarter- mile, ran iiis best race of tiie year only to lose in the last few yards to O ' Brien, Olympic ace, in the fast time of 40.4. Byars again handily won the hurdles and high jump to gain l.j points. Winning easily with 10 first and !) second |)laces, . nny never r( ' lin(|uished its early lead. In the best meet of the year. Army lost a hotly contested match to Navy on May ' 2!). With the score 50-49, Navy came from behind to take first and sec- ond places in the discus, first and third places in the broad jump, and first place in the high jump to win the meet 68-58. Lynch of Navy won in the discus with a throw of 145 feet !)3 2 inches to set a new Naval Academy and Army-Navy meet record.

Navy took 9 first, 5 second, and 8 third places, while Army took 5 first, 9 second, and 6 third places. Especial praise is due to Coach Novak and to Lt. li. .1. Wood, Officer in charge and Sprint Coach, for their work in bringing the squad into form after the early season handicap of a late spring. With the new athletic plant, second to none in the world, now under construction on the old Polo flat a banner season and many new records are in tlie offing. Captain-elect for the coming season and high- point man for last season with a grand total of 57 9 points, Dave Byars is justly Army ' s number one performer. The top ranking hurdler and a dependable high-jumper, he will do more than his share toward leading the Army team through a successful season. Another promising prospect for the coming season is Chuck Jackson. One-time holder of the Academy record for the pole vault, he will fight hard to re- attain that honor. It is certain that he will wrest many points from our opponents this spring and may even bid for Eastern recognition. Though occupied with Football and Hockey most of the year. Bill Blanchard found the time to aid the squad 33Jt 1 materially l)y his work in the cij, ' lits, principally in the shot put. His final season should see him at his best. Another footballer, Jim Ishell from ' reiines- see, has been tloing excellent work with the discus. As Army ' s mainstay in that event, he will jiave ample o|)|)ortunity to aveiifje his defeat by two . a v men in 1!)37. And in addition to these two, Kopcsak will help keep the score in favor of Army. With two vears of steady progress behind him. this should be his vear. Huckland, originally a star ja cliii throwiT, has been responsible for .Vrmy ' s tine showing in the broad jnnip. After an arm injury reci ' i -ed dur- ing his yearling year. Buck has given most of his attention to j imping. Ilis placing in the Penn Relays in the hop, step, and jump in 1!). ' 5() is one of his best examples. In the pole vault, besides Jackson, we have . nderson and York, who, during their last season, mav be expected to tinn in records secoiul only to Chuck ' s. Two other men entered in the field events who merit notice are D ' . rrez .o and IJarbour, ' I ' liese two lia c not recei ed all of the credit due them because their records ha e been over- siiadowed iiy those of Saidiorn and Eriksen hereto- fore. Howe -cr, this year they will ap|)ear in tlie.Vrmy lineup for every meet in the javelin and discus events respectively. Browning is an outstanding sprint man whose loss will be felt next year. He has made the trip to Philadelphia with the relay team twice previous to the present season and has his best year ahead of him. Another dash man is Irvin, a con- scientious worker, who each spring early in the sea- son can be seen jogging about the track in order to be in good condition as soon as possible. As for the dis- tance men. Army is very well represented by a fine lot of striders. Tillson, the Cross Country leader, is probably one of Army ' s hardest workers in the gruelling one- and two-mile runs, and is one of the major rea.sons for our success in those events. Hannuni, too, has given some sterling exhibitions in the di stance runs. In all his races, though he did not appear spectacular, he could be counted upon to maintain that steady driving pace that netted Army many points. In spite of the fact that he is a " second batter, " Pattison has a remarkably long stride that helped pull him out in front in many of his races. Gillivan is another consistent, hard- training runner. He can always be found working out long after most of the squad have checked in Bl " CKL. ND 336 ' •■■ i -- w t ' nmi [iiMcticc.

In that meet the Medley Relay team cut two more seconds off their time but were not quite able to catch the Brownmen. In the (juarter mile Brewerton cut the Academy Record by I ' i 4 .J seconds to score his second victory of the day. but in the relay the Brown anchor man finished the final lap a fraction of a second ahead of Beier to win the deciding event of a thrilling but heart-breaking meet. At Yale, despite the strange pool which up.set so many of the Army swimmers, Brewertt)n broke his own Academy Record in the ' S ' O-yard swim and came near to winning a very close 100 in record time. Fite also came within a tenth of a second of his own record in winning the breast stroke. The Dartmouth meet, like the Brown meet, was decided in the final second of tlie last event, the relay. Brewerton swam anchor, i)ut ha ing won the ' ■2 ' 30-yard swim and the quarter- mile in fast time, it was beyond his power to quite catch his rival. In the last meet of the season, against Fordham, the Relay team of Crandall, O ' Neil, Col- well, and Beier suddenly found itself and set a new Academy Record, ending the season in a blaze of COLEMAN. J. B. BREWERTON CRANDALL BEIER glory. A team was sent to tlie National Collegiate Swimming Championships at Rutgers. Considering the few men sent and the fact that this was the first Intercollegiate Championships attended by Army, the West Point swimmers did very well against tough competition. Captain Fite. Brewerton and Captain-elect Cran- dall were the most consistent winners and point getters of the season. Beier, out one meet through illness, and Williams, who lost an argument with the T. D. and thus was out for two meets, were also high scorers along with Coyne, Forrest, and Colwell. O ' Neil has the distinction of being a member of l)oth of the relay teams which .set new .Vcademv Records WHICHT, F. S FOKHKST this year and has been a leader in each. The Plebe team was exceptionally strong. Out- .standing, of course was (iarrett with his record smashing times in the 50- and 100-yard swims. There are no more than five other intercollegiate swimmers who can equal his time of 53.2 seconds in the 100 or his time of ' i-i. ' i in the 50, and what his speed will be against sprinters of his own caliber can only be conjectured upon. Besides improving the individual swimmers to the extent that records were broken with almost reckless abandon. Coach Nill did something even more im- portant this year; he welded a team that will bear watching next vear. BOXING 1938 s r M Armji Opponenin 8 Virginia Poly.

Instead of the usual team of eight men with several weak substitutes, this year sixteen men appeared in varsity meets. Captain Bert Harrison and Bob York proved so equal in avoirdupois as well as in capability that they alternated in the 155 and 165 pound classes. Harrison showed his customary ring generalship, delivering four wins, one draw, and one loss by only a minute difference in scores. York also hung up a fine record, losing only two bouts, one of which was to Penn State ' s favorite, Donato. Lavendu.sky, a newcomer to the varsity, turned in a spotless score by decisively trouncing each and every oppo- nent. Bess, who won the intercollegiate bantam title in 1937, jumped up one notch in weight this year and still weathered the season with only one defeat. Shanley combined an unconquerable will to win with amazing stamina; he, too, was beaten only once. Hull and Xegley each won three bouts, accounting for every welter-weight bout of the season. Ben Sternberg overcame his lack of weight in the 175 pound class by an amazing agility and made an excellent showing for the year. In the un- limited class, Isbell, Stella and Miley shared honors. On several occasions Jenkins and Chambers proved their ability as capable reserves. The .sea.son ' s results .speak for themselves. The 1938 squad can rest in the knowledge that it has increased, at least slightly, the prestige of boxing at West Point and of the Army team. 753 " 3f 3i8 HI I.SK, A. U.

Penn State College was easily taken in the season opener, 45-9, on February 12. As more difficult opponents were faced, the team im- proved, and on the first trip away from the Point, the cadets made long jaunts to defeat Princeton and Dartmouth on successive days. In spite of their vic- tory on the rings, Princeton was taken by the score of 42-l ' 2, and Dartmouth was utterly helpless before a truly ' " hot " cadet squad which won by the score of 50-4. The high spot of the season was the Temple meet, Saturday, March 5. It was evident that between the two undefeated teams lay the coveted team cham- pionship. . s Army gymnasts forged steadily into a commanding lead. Temple showed nervousness, and the final .score of ;39-15 is scarcely an indication of the true calibre of the Owl squad.

The following Wednesday, Syracuse, beyond a doubt the best dual-meet team in the country, de- feated Army 17-. ' 58. P ' our men on this veteran team ran a dead heat to tie Schellman ' s record of ' -24: ' 2( . The final meet of the season was staged in New York ( " ity at ' an Cortlandt Park. ' I ' his meet was a quadrangular affair with Navy, New York Univer- sity, Columbia. and the Army as entries. This was the first time an . rmy team had faced the Navy in Cross Couiitrv: and as a result, tiie team was especially desirous of wimiiug. The .Vniiy runners, however, were at a disadvantage, for instead of their usual rocky trails, they were confronted with the problem of running a slightly longer course over virtually flat paths. The team fought valiantly, but finished in second place, bowing to a faster Navy team. As Till.son will be the only consistent point winner who will graduate in June, the prospects for the com- ing year are exceedingly bright. Schellman. the Captain-elect. Nanney. Fraser, Patten, Podufaly, and deLatour will be back to avenge their defeat at the hands of the Middies. No sport resume is complete without a few words of praise for the men who have endured a successful season.

With the support of Laliti, Farrell and Hazeltine, the for- wards were in possession of the hail the majority of the time. Kolda and Pickard. or Xeff and Harvey at fullback positions were seldom outmaneu- vcred and repeatedly stopped the visitors ' offense, to drive the ball back to scoring territory. With Rhine, eteran goalie, handicapped throughout the year by a leg injury, Milton Adams proved himself a great goalie and stopped all but three of the opposition ' s ninety-one goal shots The first game of the season brought an easy win over Lehigh, 4 to 0. Coach Marchand played nearly every man, and found he had a team lack- ing nothing but experience. The next pitfall was Syracuse with a big clever team. A late fourth period scoring drive gave Army the only goal of the game. . rmy — 1, Syracuse — 0. Then came IJrown, league champions, eager to avenge a last year ' s tie. . rmy, playing inspired ball, scored early in the second period. Successfully protecting its one point advantage, the big team ended eighty-eight minutes of mad pliiy mi the long end of a 1 to score.

KKI.I.KV, H K. 355 opponent Army again hit her stride. Though each team continually hammered at the other ' s goal neither could score. A 0-0 tie with Penn State is a credit to any team. Longing for another taste of victory Army showed her old spirit in the Cornell game to win 4 to 0, followed by an easy 7 to victory over M. I. T. to end the home sea.son. Going to Middletown the following Saturday to meet Wesleyan the team found the field a mire of snow and water. An alert Wesleyan goalie foiled Army ' s seventeen tries for score and the season closed with another 0-0 tie. Although four regulars. Lough, Barnard, Harry Kelly, and Lahti, and three reliables, Xeff, Harvey, and Rhine are lost this June by graduation, the outlook to the future is far from dark. John Pickard, a regular for two years, will captain the team of ' 38. His hard consistent play won him a forward position Yearling year, but this year his excellent defensive head- work made him an outstanding fullback. With .seven regulars back such as Odom, Lehr, and Adams, together with such replacements as Grant and Rogers, the prospects are the best in years. Top-notch material from both " A " and " B " squads should make the building of another good team a certainty.

From the varsity of 1936 only three men had been lost and from the plebe team of that year, the best plebe team in many years, three excellent players came to the varsity. When practice began in the skating rink it seemed that Army was due for an outstanding season. Practice on the clay courts was delayed by the con- tinually rainy weather, and the team had only two days of outdoor practice before meeting its first opponent, Lafayette. The first two matches, with Lafayette and Lehigh, were easily won and it ap- peared that the team would be at the peak of its form wlien the most difficult matches of the season arrived, " i tJinia, too, was beaten but bv a close score.

Tlicu ' ali ' won all three of the doubles inateiies. The follow iiii; week the I ' niNersity of North Carolina, whieh lias been defeated only two or tiiree times in the past ten years, came nortii to meet an Armv team whieh was in had physical condition after the ' ale match. Although North Carolina won over- whelmingly, !) to 0, the matches were not as jjoorly played as the score indicates for e erv match was excellently and closely played. These two defeats were the oidy dark spots of the season for the remaining fi e matches weri ' easily won. Perhaps if those two matches had conu later in the season the tale might have been diti ' erent. HISSKI.I. ROLLINS .f1 E. TO.N. S K.. MANA(.KIi ( Al ' r. I OLE. OPKirEl! IN ( ' MAUCE Throughout the year the team lined up in the following order: Russell, Rollins, Hell, McCntchen, Varnall, and J indrjuist in the singles, and Ru.ssell and Rollins, Hell and Chenoweth, and McCiitchen and Yarnall made uj) the doubles teams. The New York State Intercollegiate tennis tourna- ment was held at West Point May 13th, 14tli, and 15th, and as a proof of the ability of the Army team, it won both the singles and doubles championships. As further proof, the runners-up in both the singles and doubles matches were also Army men. G. C. Russell, Captain-elect for the 1!), ' {8 .sea.son, won the singles championship from Rollins, while Ru.ssell and Rollins combined to win the doubles championship from Bell and Chenoweth. Both matches were excellent. Prospects for the season of 1938 are also very bright, for, from the team of last year we have lost only two men. Bell and Chenoweth, and from the plebe team, we gain a good player in Webster. 365 LYNCH, J. U.. CAPTAIN MR. CANAl.- A. GOLF 1937 season. Each afternoon saw some group of these men practicing in the nets in the gymnasium. The funda- mentals were mastered in this pre-season practice, but the pohsh that comes from actual outdoor prac- tice was lacking. Handicapped by inclement weather in the early season practice the team was still forced to work indoors. The opening match with Amherst found Army still far from top form. A dramatic twenty foot putt on the last green by Clifford, a new member to the squad, brought a tie.

The prospects for the 1938 season are equally as promising as the past year ' s. Davis and Duncan are the only men lost through graduation. Lynch, the Captain-elect, played fine golf all season, climaxing it by leading the field with a sparkling 74 over a hard par 72 layout in the Haverford match. Johnson who also played in every match last year will be ready for action. Great performances are expected from two memhers of last year ' s team, Clifford and Garnett whose excellent golf gave Army many needed points. INlerrell and several yearlings, Hanley, Harden and Moore, will offer keen competition for positions on till ' s(|ua(l.

After the first period in w liieli Army stained a hrijliant Ki-yard tlrive to net the only score, the game settled into a dogged battle in the mud with Army protect- ing its small lead and Navy fighting desperately against insurmountable odds to reach that goal.

When the third quarter began it seemed that the much vaunted Navy team was finally under way. Frontczak ' s kick-ofF went out of bounds on the 35 and Navy began a march into .Vrmy territory. However, on the 16 with a yard to go for fir.st down Harry Stella broke through and spilled Wood for a loss, ending Navv ' s onlv threat. Tliroiiffliout the remaindiT of the waiuc Craif ' s inai, ' iiitic ' eiit kicks kept tlie Middies bottled up ; neither ti ' atn was al)le to score, altiioiiuh Army coii- tiiuie i to dominate the game. To the civihan onlookers the game was compara- tively dull hut to the Corps any game which resvilts in victory over our service rivals is intensely inter- esting. For the team it was a magnificent ])arting tribute to its coach (iar Davidson, who labored so long and paticntlv for its success. 373 (iRADUATIOX DAY, 19 27, saw the coniinissioniii of OIK ' (iarrison H. Davidson into the ranks of the Corps of Engineers. During his four years at the Academy this Hrooklyn hoy liad become a battaht)n commander, a football star, and a friend of all who knew him. . fter attracting attention on an inter- mural football squad, he was drafted into the arsity where he played end for several years. To him went the honor of scoring the first touchdown in Michie Stadium. After graduation (iar did troop duty at Fort Dupont but returned to AYest Point in the fall to serve as an assistant coach under Major Sasse, which position he filled until his appointment as head coach in 1933. Under his tutelage the Army teams have won great success and Gar won the respect and friend- ship of every man in the Corps. It is the fervent hope of the Corps that he may win greater success in the future even as he has won our loyalty. AFTER entering the Naval Academy from Virginia, Lieut. Hardwick played three seasons as varsity end and earned his place among Navy ' s all-time football heroes by his Ijrilliant playing. His last game as a ])layer was that memorable 19 " 2(i Army-Xavy game in Chicago which ended in a ' il- ' il tie and in which our own coach, Capt. Davidson, was playing end for Army. After his graduation in 19 ' -26 Hardwick took up his duties of Ensign in the fleet but returned to Annap- olis in 1» ' 28, 19 ' 29, and 1931 to assist the coaching staff. In 1931 he was appointed end coach under his classmate and teammate. Tom Hamilton, whom he succeeded as head ct)ach in 193{i. In this, his first .season, Hardwick ' s team lost to only three strong teams, Notre Dame, Princeton, and Army. He is sure to give our team |)lenty of trouble in the ne. t few years as his regime gets under way at Annapolis. 37J 375 BASKETBALL McFARLAND INGRAM m 44-NAVY 36 AS the culmination of a season of steady improvement, the Army quintet reached the peak of performance in tliis game to defeat a hard-fighting Navy team 44 to 36 before some 8600 spectators. It was the final game of the season for both teams, a season in which both had been defeated only twice in competi- tion with the best teams in eastern collegiate circuits. Navy, early in the game, assumed the lead which they main- tained for the greater portion of the first quarter. However, Rogner and his partners soon put on the pressure, and were never afterward headed, although that Navy team threatened continuously. By dint of consistently baffling passing under the basket, the team furnished many opportunities for set-up shots which Brinker and McDavid capitalized into baskets while their usual man-to-man defense defeated the best efforts of the Mid- dies. Samuel too contributed to the .scoring by his long shots and the half ended with Navy trailing 22-18. The second half saw the same fast, s])iriteil playing as both teams fought to score. Tiie Army quintet again had the edge as their dazzling floorwork continued to baffle the Navy guards. Sanuiel, McDavid, and Brinker continued their .scoring tactics and the latter sank five baskets in the last part of the game. However, McFarland and Ingram were breaking fast and find- 376 iiig openings Iutc and tliero to score and keep Navy within striking distanee. Little (u ' lie (iillette, who wreaked such havoe with us at Aiina])oUs hist year, entered tiie game hite l)ut was iinalile to l)reak Xa v into a rally an l the game ended witli Army in the lead 44 to ' M . Xa y started the game with a zone defense, whieii type had gi ' en Army tronhle against " ale and Syracuse. However, a few long shots hy Sanuiel drew them out from the basket, and then Brinker dropped in a series of close ones. The INIiddies quickly dropped the zone and adopted the mau-to-man tlefense which Army used so successfully throughout the game. Captain McFarland for Navy led his teammates in scoring with 13 points and Laney at left guard stood out on the defense. For Army Hrinker as usual took scoring honors with 1!) points, followed by McDavid anil Samuel with 10 points each. On the defense Rogner and Sullivan were the Army bulwarks as Sullivan held Navy ' s high scorer of the season, (ihesquiere, to a meager three baskets during tlie entire game. Pat Kennedy and Dave Walsh were the referees and in a game that is traditionally rough and close they officiated in tiieir usu; competent yet dynamic and colorful style. It was a great game and the best team won, thus closing the Itasketbal .season in a blaze of glory and chalking up the second win over Navy this year. L A C l S S E A R M Y 6 — N A Y Y 5 BEFORE a crowd of 15,000 June Week visitors at Annapolis the Army lacrosse team defeated Navy by the close score of 6 to 5. It was the tenth annual service contest in lacrosse, the third won hy Army. The action was extremely rough, almost savage at times, as hotli tiie cadets and middies fought with body and stick to turn the tide of victory. Although fortune favored both sides alternately. Navy dominated the play and only by dint of a brilliant last period rally was Army able to forge ahead. Navy started fast and garnered two goals before Army got under way. Tommy Truxtun stopped the Middy onrush witii a goal at the eight minute mark to make the score 2 to 1. There were no more scores in the first period although the game con- tinued with unabated fury. Early in the second period Capt. Smith scored for Navy but Jim Scott retaliated with a backward shoulder shot to keep Army in the running. Midway in the second period Posey shook the net and the score was 3 to 3. With but half a minute remaining before the intermission. Navy scored again to lead 4 to 3 at the half. Soon after the opening of the third quarter Scott took a pass from Sherburne and shot it by the Navy goalie to e ' en the score again. 378 For the rciiiaiiulci- of tlu- period Army ' s di ' tViiso filiic- tiotU ' d perfectly and prevented tlie middies from scoring. How- ever, hardly had the final (piarter opened, when a Navy man dodged throngh the circle of Army ' s defense men and scored making Army ' s prospects of victory rather gloomy. Hut that Hig Team was not to be denied, and, with only ten minutes of the game left..lim Posey scored the tying goal hy deft stick- work and tricky dodging. A few minutes later, and three minutes before the end of till ' game, that .same I ' osey intercepted a Navy pass with a sensational flip shot to ring up the wiiniing goal. During the remaining three minules the Kaydets .savagely fought off the tierce oTislauglits of a frantic a v team and the .score remained ( to . " . Posey was easily tiie star of tlie game witii his tiiree goals which pro C(l to l)c the undoing of a figiiting Xa y team. Tommy Trnxinn furtlicr proved his reputation as one of the best college lacrosse players of the year i)y his sii|)erb midfield |)laying and iiis flawless ft ' cd shots to tiic crease which brought gcmiine applause from the partial a y onlookers. For Navy, ( ' apt. Smith was the outstanding ])lay»-r. However, it borders on r, uk injustice to say that any one man on either team shone ai)o c the otiiers. because all llie i)layrrs on i)oth sides exhibited all I lie strength, ability, and courage that usually goes into any .service contest. I 379 BASEBALL A B M Y » — NAVY : ARMY finished its most successful l);isel);ill season in years with a smashing clean-cut ictory over Navy at West Point. It was Army ' s game throughout, with hard slugging by Griffin, Kasper, and Durbin, aided 1)V the steady pitching of Davis and Lipscomb. In the first inning a fast double-play, Holcomb to Dob- son, coupled with a strikeout by Davis, retired Navy in short order and Army lost very little time before scoring. €0 ■V, " Durbin o[)ened witii a single, Kasper walked, Weinnig was hit, and Laliti cleaned the bases with a double to right field. As a result. Army had three runs and McKay was replaced on the moimd by Bruckel for Navy. During the first three innings Navy sent only nine men to bat, three were struck out by Davis ' twirling, and Dob.son, too, accounted for three at first base. However, there was no more scoring initil the fourth inning when Navy got three singles from Davis which resulted in two runs. Then in the sixth inning Anderson ' s home run to deep left field tied the score at . ' 5 all. It was during the sixth that Davis showed signs of tiring anil was replaced 380 hv Andy Lipscomb who allowed only one liil during tlie r( ' iiiaiiiiii ; thrt ' c iimiiiijs. ' I ' lic Army liatsincn did not solve Mnickcrs style pitcliiiii, ' until the scvcntli Imt lliiy made ii|) Tor the delay during that inning. Captain Hoi) (iriflin started the inning with a four-hase blast down the left foul line which lost the ball behind Culliini Hall. Dnrliin and Doiison came to the plate next and each pounded out a tii| le. Weinnig singled and Hob Kasper knocked a home run in almost the same place as did (Iriflin. The score was now 7 to ;!. Mowex-er the ti ' am was not satisfied for in tiie next inn- ing, the eigidh. (iriffin walked and .lini Durliin dro e him in with his fourth hit of the game, a Iriiile to right center. There was no more scoring and the game ended S to li. Hoth the outgoing Caplaiii, (iriffin and the Captain- elect, Kasper, proved their ability in this game by scoring two runs each and by each knocking a home run down the left field fonl line. Jim Durbin. too. came in for his share of applause by virtue of his four iiits. tuo triples and two singles. However, we must not forget tiie creilit due Totn Davis and Andy I.ipscond) for their excellent pitching. This Navy game was a erv sncccssful end to an already successful season, and one w iiieh redects great credit on Armv ' s new coach, Wally Krcncii, for building such a high spirited and well-coordinated team. 381 TRACK ARMY 5 8 — NAVY 68 THE Navy track team won nine of the fourteen events, to defeat Army in their annual meet. Dalton and Lynch shared honors for Navy by each winning two first places, Dalton in the sprints and Lynch in the field events. Capt. Klocko was iiigh scorer for Army with three second places, all in the jumping events. Army started well by making a clean sweep of the 100-yard dash with Kelsey Reaves finishing with a time of 10.0 seconds followed by Caffee, and Wilson. However Na ' y " s favorite, Joe Dalton, got into the meet and won first place in the ' ■2 ' -20 and in the quarter mile, in which Navy took all places with Cutts and Finn following Dalton to the tape. Li the half-mile and one-mile runs Armv could get no more than a second 382 placf, l)ut in the two-mile run Lewis and Iluhhard took first and second [)laces res|)eetively with a time of !) minutes and 46 seconds. Dax ' e Hvars won first place in the I ' iO-vard high hurdles and came in second in tlu ' ' J ' -id-vard low hurdle race. Meanwhile in the fielil events Xa v " s Lynch was setting a new Army-Na y meet record and a new . a al Academy record by tossing the discus M-.) feet !) ' s inches. Kike took second place in this event. Lynch also put the sliot 4. feet 10 inches, seconded l y Kike again, to defeat Erik.sen.

Perhaps to us, in later years, the memory of these extra things, not really part, officially, of West Point life, will come to be more valued than a host of more important things,- as we look back to Color lines, and hops, and Sunday morning choir soirees, and all the long hours spent at Delafield before parade. ii A n M I N I S T l A T I N S HONOR COMMITTEE TO the Honor Committee falls the responsibility for maintaining and fostering the high standards and ideals of honor which have been an earmark of West Point from its very beginnings. It functions as a directive force in promoting and administering a program in which every cadet participates. The Honor ( " ode is our heritage; we will cherish it through out the remainder of our careers, for it has made a deeper impression on us than has any other element of our West Point training. him out, for we feel that the individual must adjust himself to the system, and not the .system to the indi idual. However, the Honor Committee is not a punitive body. Its work consists mainly in in.structing and interpreting. During " Beast Barracks " the new plebes are gi -en a series of lectures on honor. They are made to understand just how important a part honor plays in a West Point and an Army career. They are made to realize what is expected of them . TiLsoN, Sturdivant, Macomber, Weinnig, Norris, F. W.. Barsci WicKHAM, Smith. W. W.. Jannahone, Love. Kellf.v. H. K. When a man enters the Academy he discovers that certain standards must be attained by him. Fre- quently it .so happens that because of customs or environment to which he has been subjected he will have difHculty in adjusting him.self to his new organ- ization. Certain qualities in him must be developed to their fullest. It becomes the duty of the Honor System as a whole to instill in him an unquestionable sense of honor, which, together with discipline, devo- tion to duty, unfailing loyalty, and other qualities, wilt stamp him a real soldier and a gentleman. Unfortunately, it sometimes occurs that a person does not attain the standards require l of him. It then becomes tlie duty of the Honor CoTiimittee to find insofar as honor is concerned. Throughout the year, also, the Honor ( immittee advises the Corps as to what interpretations it has made on various points which arise. Our Honor Code is as simple in .structure as it is profound in significance. It demands honesty in work, honesty in statements, and honesty in the performance of duty. Into these essentials can be re- solved all of its ramifications. And because we have learned to live by these essentials and to admire all those who do, we will be proud to say, when the time comes for our ])ortion of the long gray line to move out, " All right " for the Cla.ss of " .

W., Prels IX its second year of existence, the Concert Orchestra has continued to serve as an outlet for musical talent of members of the Corps. Surprising as it may seem, there are present in the Corps an almost countless aggregation of instrumentalists of all varieties, ready and even eager to display their wares on the slightest provocation. Members of a body of men notably lacking in leisure time, these musicians are neverthe- less of no mean ability, playing almost every instru- ment with great skill and abandon. That they should find the time to organize and prepare programs for the enjoyment of all is indeed gratifying, ior it is not easy to find occasion for the develop- ment of nnisical talent in a curriculum already full of activities. ' J ' he selections presented by the Concert Orchestra have, for the most part been chosen from the wide and varied library of light opera and overture music that is so well liked by all. Friml, Romberg, and Herbert are its gods, and as such, demand faultless and inspired rendition of their masterpieces. This music is particularly suited to the Cadet Concert Orchestra because it is within the capabilities of the members and at the same time gratifying to the tastes of the Cadets. Perhaps the most popular group of performances of the orchestra during the past year has been in con- junction with the Cadet Players. Tliese two organ- izations make a good team providing together an evening of entertainment superior to radio, movie, or even good old red comforter. The Concert Orchestra considers itself justified when it gives the Corps pleasure. Perhaps this high aim is the secret of the success and po[)ularity of this organization with the Cadets wiio have come to look to it for a ery special kind of music. 39Jt CADET PLAYERS PICTURED helow arc ihv men who in a true sense are " tlie inner workinj s " of the Cadet I ' layers. Not pictured (in truth, no one picture could do full justice) are the men responsible for the smooth fuiietioniiif, ' of a Cadet Player production. ' l " he actors, the author, the director, the producer, the construction manager, all of these are vitally iiu- {)ortaiit . . . liut their success rests mainly upon the men behind the scenes, the " supers " antl stage hands whom we call the unite gods. These men assist in the construction of .sets, in the faultless shifting of scenery, and in arranging and keeping in order the various light units. Once the play is on, they retire to darkened corners, there to ajjplaud silently the efforts of the men on stage whom they ha e helped. Especially needed was the active cooperation on the part of the mute gods in the Cadet Players " 1!), ' ? " fall production of " Yellow Jack. " Modern in lan- guage, Elizabethan in setting, this play is very diffi- cult to produce. It is not broken up into conventional acts between which various sets can be arranged, but moves forward in a continuous shifting of lights. Consccpiently, stage setting nuist be done in full view of the audience, albeit, discreetly. The- Broadway production of " ellow Jack " required ninety " spots " of varying sizes. The Cadet Players boast a produc- tion using nine. Tliat the success of this play was unrpiestioned by all w ho saw it, is but another tribute to our unite gods. The actors and production key men are rewarded by the ap|)laiiNe of the audience. No audience, how- ever, greets the mute gods. When the final curtain clcses they .start to clean up. With tlii ir work o ' er, the play is but a memory. But long after, when the applau.se is silent and the program forgotten, we will remember the helpful cooperation of our mute gods and say then, as now, " Thank you — your bit was most necessary.

Out of the clearing dust of millions of controversial ideas and conflicting theories emerges, sometimes preceding Jime week, sometimes later, that colossal, super-delux publication, " The Annual of the Corps of Cadets. " As the smoke of battle gradual ' y rolls a vay, and the time for publication begins to rear its ugly head in the distance, we of the staff become more and more bewildered, not to say astonished, at the strange concoction taking form before us. Gone with the wind are all the sparkling, unimpeachable editions which once colored our vision; some of them passing quietly, almost imperceptibly out of our reach, others going, hut not without a struggle, to the ac- cdinpaniment of long-winded arguments and endless wreaths of smoke drifting slowly, everlastingly, uj) into the night. Al)out this time, the Editor and the Business Manager begin to get a bit philosophical about life in general and the Hdwitzer in ])ar- ticular. " Old stuff, " not to be in our annual by emphatic assertion on numerous occasions, begins to creep up on us and to e. ert the steam- roller pressure of precedent and expediency so well known to those who dream of something new. Three luuidred and one varieties of. " I don ' t want to write a biography, " and, " What ' s the idea of driving us way over here for a picture. ' " , begin to crop up with startling regularity. Advertising is slow and circulation lags, seemingly increasing the pro- portions of the alreaily enormous sum of money necessary for this Utopian edition. Such naive observations as. " I can ' t .see anything ])articularly difMcult in getting together a l)unch of pictures and sticking them on a few hundred pages, " come back to haunt our ilreams and J,OJ, i I make us cat our words, ■c• tjct the traditidiial How irzKU " ■lui ' l)l)ie.s " hut ' souii ' liow uuuKige to keep fi ' oiui; ' forward, toward our i oak Now that it is all o er, the last i)it ot f alley proof read, the last en- graviug proof checked, we cau, for the first tiiuc, sit dowu aud take stock of the 1938 How itzku and of how it was uiadi ' . The first sensa- tion is one of relief: relief lioru of the knowledge tiuit the Howitzer has actually gone to press, that its financial ohligatioiis will he met. that it will l)i ' on time for graduation. Coupled witii this feeling of relief is a profound interest in seeing what our How itzku will look like in final form, and in seeing how well we suceceiU ' d in doing what we set out to do. Hut perhaps a word on just what we did set out to do would he (( prnpns at this point. First, knowing that the Howitzkk is more than just a yearhook to most graduates, we ha e tried to incorporate into it some of the char- acteristics of a fine hook. In the years to come the Howitzer may be the only tangihle reminder of our West Point sojourn for many of us, standing for many abstract ideas of honor, of loyalty, of duty, first learned at West Point hut destined to he just as important to us later. ' I ' ltcreforc it is fitting that the Howitzf.h should he a conservuti e, well liound. restrained -olunH iiuilt as far as practieahle in accordance with the tra lition of fine hook making and capahle of withstanding the ra ages of lime. Most important of the dc ices used to attain this end has heen the art program wliicii includes a series of woodcuts liy the celehratcd artist, Rudolph Ruzicka. executed especially for this edition. It is tiiouglit tiiat these works will not only place tiie art program on a high ])lane. l)ut u ill increase the intrinsic alue of the hook in the direc- tion of the hiifli sentimental ' alue attached to it.

L. 4M, Moorman. H. N.. Skaer. Orb. Hoisixgtox Our next care has been to make the Howitzer as far as po.ssihle docu- mentary of the life of the class of 1938. In our theme we have tried t . portray outstanding events or activities in which the class has par- ticipated. In the view section the scenic parts of West Point havnig especial significance for the class have been given preference. Hut it is upon the fifty pages of snapshots contained in the Class History section b,„,,™„;, and in the Occasions Section that we have really relied to preserve all of the minute details, and all the humorous incidents of these four years. An especial effort has been made to make the short biographies of the individual members of the class true to life and devoid of all platitudes. Another innovation, in the direction of a truer portrayal of the everyday life of the class is the introduction of snapshots of some of the instructors in lieu of the formal group pictures heretofore used. In the realm of business, the Howitzkk is comparable only with the Navy ' s Lucky Bag. Representing only 18()() men, the Howitzer pro- duces each year a book which always stands near the top of the college annual field. This book is produced at a cost to the cadets of from 100% to 50% less than the cost of the average college annual of schools whose enrollments vary from 7500 to I ' -Z.OOO. To do this, the Howitzer busi- ness staff must be able to produce greater advertising facilities than other college annuals, to gauge accurately its resources, to pare down, by efficient management, the costs of production, to take fullest advan- tage of the limitc.l circiilatiim facilities at its eoiniiiaml. That it has been able to accoini)lish tiiis end, is due to the complete absence of monetary remuneration to tlic start ' (a big item on most college annual budgets), and to the effort supplied by the personnel of the advertising and circulation deuartmeiits. This year tiie Howitzer has .sold more 1 t SPICER C lass lli.iloru Kdil. .m 1 (i HOPSON I inuluti.m M inn„ri COIKA ;w r f Hiitlur (•()])ics than I ' XtT het ' orc and advert isiii a lias rciiialod, if not surpassed tliat of t ' ornior years.

The First ( ' las.s representatives who so successfully raist ' d the circulation of the II( ) itzi:h to unknown heii dits were tireless in their efforts to a.ssist the Circulation .Manaj fcr. Only those who understand the difficulties of wholesale |)hotoi raphy can appreciate the work done by our l ' hoto;;rai)hy Department.

There is a salute, the french name for w liich has no precise e(|uivalent in English — the e( de joie. It means more than just joy and happiness; it means the glorious exultation of victory.

Now in its fifteenth year, it is still howling. The row of hound volumes reposing on its shelf in the Library attests to the fact that a part at lea.st, of the long grey line has been preserved for posterity. " The Pointer is not an ordinary college comic. ' " That is the byword and the boa.st of those associated with it. But when called upon to tell just exactly what it is, even its staunchest supporters are at somewhat of a loss. It is not a comic, but then neither is it a newspaper, nor can it in any way be classed as a purely professional journal. As the only year " round West Point publication, excepting its chief rival, the Daily liuUclin. it has come to be a sort of modified revue, covering the news, the professional interests and the humor of the Corps. The Academy, as you are aware, has no .school of journalism. Hence the Pointer, under the ever watchful eye of the ( " ensor and the under- .standing guidance of (ieorge, must be run entirely by the cadets them- selves. How this is accomplished in such .spare time as a cadet has, is somewhat of a mystery to all concerned. The administration is headed by the Pointer Hoard, consisting of three members from the editorial and three from the business departments. Each department has its own stafi ' and assistants, and attempting to direct and coordinate the whole, is the much-worried editor who.se air suggests a continual fear that there is a deadline ready to leap out at him from behind every corner. m Tile iiia ;izini ' is ;i l)i- cckly. coiiiirii; out twi ' iity tiiiu ' s durinj tlic school vcar.

TIk ' Hrst issue took shape while we were on the (u ' or ia ' Pri|), and its appearance, in Septemher, i ave one mort ' indication that the First Class was beginning the last lap. I ' hronnhont the fall the Pointer went round and round covering the nniltilude of exents that were happening. The football season, rings, the (Joat Engineer football game, officer ' s e(|ui|)nient, all of these tilings apjieared prominently in the fall issues. In addition, a .series of profe.s.sional articles on the Air Corps and an- other on dirt ' erent branches of the .Vrmy brought a great deal of faxor- able comment. Two new West Point cadets were born; Funnel and his un.speaking wife Blotz. together with the hitter ' s sister, furnished pertinent data on current exents and personalities and forced their creator into hiding at regular interxals. ' ith the spring came tlie .Vutomobile Issue, closely followed by the traditional Fi ' iiimes Xuniher and the Old Crads ' Issue.

AW-Pvintcr issue, con- taining the best of what had been said and drawn before. To the staff there should be some bouquets, and to the business staff especially nmst be awarded recognition. They are the ones who must handle the financial problem; they must see that advertisers are aware of the benefits to be gained from advertising in the Pointer; they are the ones who must take the blame when someone thinks he has an out- side subscription someplace but isn ' t quite sure. They are the un- heraltled, unsimg heroes who brave the maze of bookkeeping necessary to keep the magazine going. To the budding journalists, the poets and the artists of the Corps, the Pointer furnishes an outlet for expression. With this chance for ex- pression is coupled the never-fading thrill of seeing their names in print over their creations. These are the men who constitute the Staff. And once they get in, they never get out. Printers ink. even the ink wliich flows into a college magazine, is indelible stuff, and once you get it on your hands you can never get it off. So the Pointer goes on and on. Ideas are born at athletic events, in the section rooms. Inuiiortal, well almost immortal, verse comes into being on the back pages of economics text-books. Ideas are hastily scratched down on the reverse sides of juicy poop sheets. Thus is the deadline met and the Pointer saved. We have few illusions about our magazine. We do not hope to enter into competition with Esquire or the Saturdciii Kiening PoM. But we do think that in the realm of college magazines, we can hold our jjlace with the best of tlieni.

To write it Kendall Banningwent to live with the Corps. He ate at their mess, mingled with the officers, and got to know West Point better than any other man not in the army. He writes about the Corps — on parade and at ease — from an inside view- point. He describes West Point ' s history and back- ground, and tells about the valuable art treasures, manuscripts, historic documents and relics that are little-known on the outside. He made the book as entertaining as it is informative, including a chapter on pointers for " femmes, " and he answers all ques- tions visitors are likelv to ask.

WALKS TIME FIRST TEiX MILES w Okonite Wires and Cables are Quality Products • Experience has proven that " Okonite Quality " is a tangible quality — an actual difference in the properties of insulation which can be definitely measured in the reduced cost of maintaining or replacing wiring or power circuits. This quality is no mere accident. It was woven into the very beginning of this company in 1878. It has been handed down from one gener- ation to another, for more than half a century. It is based on the use of only the finest of raw materials and longer manu- facturing methods than are commonly used. It is safeguarded by constant re- search and development. Okonite Qual- ity is built into every foot of wire and cable that leaves the plant. Okonite Qual- ity is responsible for the fine operating record of Okonite Products everywhere. Okonite Quality will always be main- tained. 1938 MARKS OUR EOTH VEAR OF SERVICE THE OKONITE COMPANY FOUNDED 1871 EXECUTIVE OFFICE: PASSAIC. N. J.

All these attributes of these two fine cars are direcdy trace- able to thoroughgoing quality — quality engineering, quality materials, quality workmanship.
