S zvay of Introduction Iw i886 a part oj the J-lumiredth T ight Show consi ed oj a satirical speech about the ' Jadical Department, called theTloioitzer. This title was selecled because the speaker hoped his remarks , like a» artillery howitzer, iniLjht be capable oj hurliiit) " projecliles " from a relatively safe position to a vulnerable spot in the e}iemy defenses. Jhis particular type of speech continued as a part of the procjram for several years, and in t894 and 1895 the title was cpve)i to the entire Dialectic Society procjram which consisted of soni s, bits of verse, and choice selections jrom the humor of the Corps. 3n {896 the name was given to the new " Jlnnual of the Corps of Cadets. " Because the howitzer occupies a place of increasing importance in the artillery plans for the future, we have decided to present as the theme of ourJ-lowitzer a short history of the salient points in the development of this singular piece of Ordnance.

' - I I .. I ojnwfvJbUiamri .y{£ word " hotpitzer " is derived from a Qerman word " hauhitze " which means ' a sli»g. " Jhe same type oj weapon as the howitzer is referred to in Qerman military literature as " §leiljeuer()eschutze " meaning " Sleep fire gun. " ir yiowitzers firSl appeared at the time oJ Louis l and were used both for field and siege work in the British and Dutch armies for the purpose oj firing shell, not at that time used in guns. Shell had been inve}ited in i543 jor use in mortars and described as " certai)i hollow shot oj caSl iron, to be Slujfed with fireworks . . . whereof the smalleSl piece hitting a man would kill or spoil him. " Because oj the danger oj explosion shells were never loaded down the long gun tubes oj the time, and the howitzer was designed to permit placing the projedile in place by hand. J-urthermore, the howitzer was to fire a heavier projeclile at a higher a)igle oj elevation to jacilitate firing on covered positions. 7 ' r During the eightee}ith century Qriheauval, French inspedor-general oj artillery, lightened and Standardized the field howitzers and their carriages. Jhe type oj artillery lejt in the French army by Qribeauval served as a model oj artillery jor all the armies oj the world until the middle oj the ninetee}ith century. 7 J(t the time oj our Civil IVar there were 51X different types oj howitzers in the army, two oj which were used in seacoaSl dejenses. The 24 pounder shown here was a howitzer oj the Qribeauval type which had been Standard for the laSl huttdred years. 1 l ' l{AM l,l DKI.AXO l{()()Si: HLT I ' rc iilcnt of tlic I ' liilcd Slates ' t HAHin II.

STAMI ' S dp:partment of engineering After three years of not too anxious waiting we encountered the Department of Engineering — the consumation of our previous courses in science. We fondly believed that we had accumulated enough " spec " and handbooks to carry us through, but we soon learned that we had neglected to apply that well-known adage of Hums: " The best-laid plans of mice and men. . . . " Our course comprised Civil and Military Engineering, Military History, and Fortifications. In Military History we froze with Napoleon in Russia, and became mere shadows flitting around the country with Jackson in his Valley Campaign. Fortification taught us the imijortant lesson that no matter how strong one may believe himself to be, the enemy is prob- ably stronger (viz: our belief that we were sufficiently fortified with " spec " for this course). We were glad when Engineering finally ended, but we will also be glad someday that its principles were in.stilled so thoroughly into us. 42 I.T. f ' ARAW.w: Capt. Cole; Tapt. McComsev I.T.

This knowledge can he utilized to ])rt ' -ent costly mistakes now and in the future because history sei ' ULs to indicate tliat ci ilizatiou is l)ut a sequence of recurring cycles. In view of tliat fiict, yearling year we .studied the ])olilical and .social trends of Euroj)ean His- tory. After this introduction, the DeiKirtment relinquished irs dui-iug second class year — jjossihiy to give our eyes a much needed rest. During fir.st class year we .studied the national, state, and local governments of our own and other nations. As part of the Eco- nomics course which followed we ac- (|uainted ourselves with the ])rol)leni of insurance ccjufronting officers. Fortified with all this knowledge so essential to an army officer, we feel oiu ' selves ])re- parcd to hegin our chosen career. 44 . I Ml liUKDKX; TaPT. De- CA.r. Uebek; (.kit. Van Sic ; Capt.

In the cjuest for knowledge it would seem that by far one of the mo.st important subjects for exploitation .should be that with which we are most intimately concerned — our own bodies. After we liad dis.sected })istols. automatic rifles, and machine guns for three years, the Department of Military Hygiene stepped in at the proper moment to carry our technical and mechanical education at the .Vcademy to a logical end with a study of tlie most comi)l( ' x of all mechanisms, the lunnan boily.

This, necessarily, requires a thorough, l)n)a(l education. To lu ' lj) yive us this education the Second ( " lass coiu ' se in l liilos])hy intrtjduced us to Meclianics, Hytlraulics, Thermodynamics, and Aerodynamics. The greater part of the year was devoted to classroom stiuly of Mechanics. We figured tin- stresses on trus.ses and neglectetl the strains on our brains. We accelerated with Coriolli, sweated with Heruoulli, and fraternized with others of .such ilk. Later in the year we liad lal)oratory periods in which wi ' a])])lied the theories learned in the classrooms. There we tested ingeniously construct etl weirs, wind-tunnels and other mechani- cal devices. We enjoyed the welcome Jectui-es and learned a great deal of both practical and cidtural im])ortance. 48 . Cut. Hi. ku.i.n; Cut. Uaunli. Cait. MAii.itws; fAii. Thibstun; Lt. Roueks; Lt. Paiuk: Cai-t.

Stiness DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LjAINI LtLJ A vjrjlik 5 Many years ago man learned that the sonnds which escaped his lips could be organized into certain com- binations, each expressing an individual object or thought. Then languages develo])ed. Unfortunately, there was no way ol ' coordinating or unifying these languages, and there came to exist a great munber of forms of vocal expression all entirely diti ' erent from one another, yet all perfectly caj able of expressing identic-al things. Thus there arose a great barrier in the world, the overcoming of which provides a definite thrill to the i)erson who can express himself in more than one language. In presenting tlie study of French and Spanish at the Academy the I)e])artment of Modern Languages equips our futiu ' e officers with a finidamental training in the use of an excellent weapon in file ])ursuit of world jjeace and the ad- vancement of amitv between nations. 50 J Tait.

There was also at this time a necessity jor developing a recoil mechanism capable oj preventing the tremendous carriage recoil oj the higher powder charges which came ajter better barrel eels had been invented. • The seven inch howitzer shown here was modijied to meet this recoil problem. When used in siege jiring where many rounds would be jlred jrom a single position, a wooden plank was embedded in the ground beneath the wheels and a large coil spring was jaslened to it and to the box trail oj the piece. %us the gun was more rapidly returned to battery ajter firing. It was assumed that the major portion oj the recoil would be absorbed by the pneumatic recoil bujfers. ir Ajter the Spanish American War guns were produced which were capable oj very high elevations. %us the principle difference between Jiowitzers and guns disappeared. Today, ij we place an ec ually mobile howitzer and gun together we find that the howitzer will be oj larger calibre, firing a projedile twice as heavy as that oj the gun at a lower muzzle velocity and a shorter range. iL racra u My Jesus, as thou wilt!

I yjER the close oj the Spanish American War the Ord- nance Department set about the task of designing artillery materiel in which the gun would he permitted to recoil on the carriage in order to increase the rate of fire by doing away with the necessity for placing the entire carriage back in position after each round. Jhe 3 inch mountain howitzer with a trail spade, recoil buffers, and counter recoil springs was designed to replace the old 2.95 inch mountain gun which had used the recoil of the piece to reduce the recoil of the carriage. Also, during this period the Ordnance Department was working on howitzers for use in the field armies. Jhe 3.8 inch, the 4.7 inch, the 6 inch, the 7.6 inch, and the 12 inch howitzers and carriages were designed and manufadured. At this time it was considered that howitzers would be satisfadory if fired up to 40 or 4 5 degrees elevation, therefore, the charges were arranged in zones to vary the muzzle velocity and hence the angle of fall, ii With the coming of the World War it was realized that manufaSuring facilities were very limited in this country, and it was considered expedient to procure weapons from England and 7rance for the American Expe- ditionary Torces while indu§lry was creating faElories to conSlruB them in this country. The i55 mm Schneider howitzer was adopted from the Trench and issued to our army. The s inch and 9.2 inch ' Vickers howitzers were borrowed from England. Development of all previously designed American weapons was suspended entirely during our participation in the war. i-v The howitzer shown here is a 240 mm Schneider howitzer, a heavy weapon we obtained from Trance. This weapon was later made in this country from designs secured from the Trench. Although it is necessary to divide the gun into five loads for transport, when it is emplaced in the firing position the accuracy is remarkable with the existing ammunition. , ARE CLASS OF 1939.

J ?e decision to place this type of weapon in our harbor defenses came as a result of the very excellent type of service given by large caliber howitzers during the " World War. Only a few have been conslruded. Jhis howitzer hurls a 2100 pound armor- piercing projedile to a di ance of about 3 nules. 7he carriage permits all-around fire at angles from 1 degrees below horizontal to 65 degrees above horizontal.

It is the overseer of the high standards set by Army teams on the many fields where they compete. This year the Hoard restored to active status two former Corps S((uads, Rifle and Wrestling. With the ojjening of the new s |uasii courts in the near future tlie Board will have an oppor- tunity to give official recognition to our informal squash team, which has engaged in a few inter- collegiate matches this winter. At the bottom of the page we give you the rabble rousers of the Corps.

I ' F T B J L L The Army ( " oaclics said little alxmt the ])ros- pect.s for their football team at the lie inning of the 1988 campaign. They had a good first s tring l)ackfield. a decimati ' d line, and (luestionalile re- serves to start work with. Nevertheless, they hopefully started on their ta.sk. and the first two games of the season proved that their silenee was not nnfoimded o])timism. The Big Team hjoked like whirlwind, and its Board of Strategy didn ' t let it slip once dui ' ing the season. The team dropped two games, but in both cases tlie op- ponents were given plenty of harrowing mo- ments and gained their ictories only after put- ting everything they had into the game. The grade of football shown by the Army during the season as a whole was excellent, and to the Coaches goes much of tlie credit. They used their material well. The Trainers had many injuries to niu ' se but did a fine job of overcoming that ob.stacle and of keeping a well-conditioned Army Team on tile field throughout the season.

W.H., Mc 389 Captain Bill Wood returned to his coachinj? duties at West Point facing varied prospects in the football material with which to build a team. Gratluation had not hit the scjuad too heavily but had taken key men whose substitutes had to be fitted into place. For example. Hank Hart line and Nev Howell had left a gaping hole at center; Bill Blanchards and Jim Isbell ' s regular play at tackle would be missed. The end and guard posi- tions were rich in material. No flaw could be found in the sterling first- string backfield of Long. Schwenk. Wilson, and Frontczak, but behind them — what? The pre-season determination of both coaching staff and squad, however, paced by the commands that snapped out of tlie side of Captain Wood ' s mouth, pointed to a winning season. Army inaugurated their 1938 sea.son with a decisive . ' Vi-O victory over Wichita University. The Corps received a mild scare when the Wheat- shockers, taking the opening kickoff, advanced to the 15-yard line before iAMVEL, .1. S. i,()N(;, c. .1. Frontczak ' s interception of a pass halted the attack. Line l)ucks by Schwenk, Wilson, and Long brought the ball to the visitor ' s lO-yard line from where Long swept aroimd left end for Army ' s first touchdown of the season. The two touchdown drive in the second f|uarter was sparked by Jack Schrader who came into the game to replace Wilson who was injured. He and Long alternated in advancing from our 4;5 to Wichita ' s .5. There the Shockers held momentarily, but on the third down Schrader carried tiie ball on a reverse around the I ' ight side of the line for six points. Army released a passing attack for tiie third score. Schrader • 390 • . l l.l.n AN. II. H. WILSON. W. V. carried a punt back to the Wichita 40. Four jiasses by Long, two to McDavid and two to Frontczak, placed the pigskin on the 3-yard Hne. A lo-yard penalty set the team back, but the Schrader- McDavid passing combination clicked twice for a score. The second half opened with an 80-yard runback by Urill of Wichita. Long intercepted a pass on the goal line to prevent a score. Two long runs by Long set the stage for Schrader ' s second touchdown. The last score was made via the air route on a pass from Schrader to Dobson. After catching the ball on the Wichita 23, Dobson dodged one would-be tackier, twisted from another, ami outran the third to cross the goal line standing up. Army ' s paper hangers made their grand entree in the last quarter. Twice they got insiile the Kansans ' 10 but each time failed to hit pay dirt. Dulniisson ' s passing anil running were the spearhead of the substitutes " attack. The game ended with both sides tossing futile passes. Army played surprisingly good football for openmg game, the Shockers were smo ered l)y a versatile Army i)ackfiel(l ()[)erating behind a big, fast line. .V mixtiu ' e of reverses. spinners, and forward passes, combined with hard blocking featured the winning attack. Army successfully hurdled another obstacle in its way toward a creditable season by handily defeating V.P.L the following Satm - day. The cadets from Blacksburg were all primed to repeat their 16-() victory of 190.5, but they just didn ' t have the {)ower. What cost V.P.L the game in the final analysis was their zone pass defense which Woody Wilson punctured at will. .Vrmy ' sfirst string started the •391 • SCHWENK, J. T. L. LITTLE. R. K.

Wilst)n to " ' eager. the third on a pass, Wilson to Miillin, and the last on a pass, Wilson to Kelleher. The second string entered the game in the second jieriod but could not make much headway. A ' irginia ' s sole threat was De Muro, a shifty runner and expert kicker. He sent long punts down the field hut the Big Team was not checked. In the .second half ]Martin, Dubuisson, Due, Weidner, and Kelleher all tore through the visitor ' s forward wall for substantial gains. Army broke into the scoring columns again when Midlin received a neat |i r pass from Sid .Martin, ' i ' iu- following and final score was made b - tlie yearling Lautcrbach on a i)lunge through the center of the line. On October Hth an arrogant ( " olinnbia Lion came roaring into Michie Stadium and refused to ) »y dead before a vicious onslaught of the Army Mule. After being pushed around for thirty minutes, the Lion grabbed a new lease on life, snarled out of his den. and jjroceeded to claw a ' -20-18 victory. The game was almost a reiM ' tition of last year ' s see-saw battle with the team possessing the more eilucaled toe coming out on top. At tile outset . rmy seemed destined to steamroll to victory. Coach W ' ood ' s eleven started with plenty of ammunition. The tussle had hardly opened when Woody Wilson, alter making two fruitless attempts to throw a pa.ss, scami)ered around his left flank and behind beautiful blocking raced 49 yards to .Vrmy ' s first touchdown. .V few minutes later IJob Little recovered a Columbia fumble on the Lion l(i-yard line. .Vgain the •392- HUOW.N. H. .MacV. alert Woody Wilson ripped through the Co- hunl)ia line to score standing up. Columbia got under way after the kickoff and on eleven plays made six jjoints. With Luc-kman as the spearhead of the Light Blue attack, they surged down the field. Their tally came on a pass boomed from the ten-yard line by Luck- man into the waiting hands of the rangy Siegal. This failed to daunt the cadets who were charging and blocking ferociously. The Big Team laid siege once more, hlrtin. sub- stituting for Wilson, ]m the ball in scoring position with a dash aroinid right end and then rang ii]) six more points for the Army MILLKK, M. M. when he cauglil l.ong " left -handed pass in I he end zone. Tlie score at the half stood Arui ' IS. ( ' ((lunibia (i. Army liad missed all its conver- sions a costl - weakness. In the second lialf Arm_ " seemed a bit tired while (lie Lions perked uj) behind Liicknian " s ins])irational play. Columbia made a des])erate and successful bid for ictory. n interception com- bined with a tricky lateral [)ul the ball on . rmy " s . -yard line where Seidel buckeil the ball over to comi)licate matters. Luckman ' s placement was good. Then .Vrmy threatened, only to lose the ball when Long ' s attempted field goal from the Ki-yard mark went wide. .Vgain Columbia took to tlu ' air; Luckman heaved jjasses all over the field, and the Corps was on its feet yelling to stop Luckman. But he could not be stopped. Columbia ' s . ll-. merican passed to Siegal for an 18-yard gain, to Radvilas for ' ■2 ' 2 more, . nother pass put the ball on the 3-yard line. Seidel crashed through on the next i)lay for the winning touchdown. The Army team functiijned M. DAVID, .1. A. 393 almost flawlessly as a unit in the first half, one of the outstanding features of the game being tlie sujierb play of the Army line. Paced by Stella and Gillis, their tackling was vicious, their blocking deadly. Long and Wilson were standouts in the l)ackfield while Frontczak gave a fine blocking exhibition. ' rlic following week against Old Jolni Harvard it ajjpeared that Army had ni)l yet recovered from the ( ' oluml)ia defeat. Harvard, refusing to acce])t the role of the imderdog. rushed tiie cadets oft " their feet, and were defeated only by Army ' s refusal to (|uit when the Cantabs .seemingly had the game on ice. Though heavy favorite ' s, liie Hig Team played a sluggish first half while Harvard unleashed a furious attack. In the first half it was all llar ard. Hard blocking and short i)asses over tlic line featured the Crimson i)lay. They rolled up eight first downs to Army ' s one, scoring seven i)oints in the process. At the halfway mark Army trailed 7-0. But DOUSOX, J. w mk I. M. THEU. J. E. in the second half the .50.000 si)ectators saw a different Army team. Two passes plus a brilliant run by Frontczak produced . rmy ' s first touchdown. Harvard took to the air as the cadet line seemed harder to c-rack than before, and scored again. Then Daughters got oflF a long, low boot to Art Frontczak who drove straight up the middle of the field and ran through the entire Harvard team to score standing up. Tong converted. The score board read 14-14. Harvard ' s next march was stopped short, but not short enough as Chief Boston booted the ball through the uprights for a j)recious three points. With but nine minutes •394- M. x i:i,i.. .1. n. DAVIS. T. W. of playing time remaining. Harvard led 17-14. The cadets took to the air in desperation. Gardella intercepted an Army pass and ran the liall hack to Army ' s ' 20. On the next play Hiiey Long took the ball and streaked to his 20. A plunge picked up a yard. Then Long faded back, shook off two tacklers, threw a forward pass over the heads of incoming linemen to Wilson waiting in mid-f ield. Wilson, finding his way blocked by two Harvard men, ran back down field and got away. He cut to the right side of the field and aided by beautiful blocking, particularly that of Dobson who fought off three tacklers for thirty yartls. ran to the 1-yard marker. On the next play Long went over for a touchdown and .Vrmy turned defeat into a ' ■20-17 victory. The next ()])ponent. Boston University, outnumbered and outplayed, could not cope with the power of the Army and bowed to a score of 40-0. From the opening kickoff the outcome was inevitable. Taking the ball on the 2()-yard liiu- Ihc Mule, led l.y Long and Mullin. charged down the field and i)ushed over its initial score. Then Army started a parade of touciidowns. Huey Long cut his way down the field for a score and Jim Schwenk intercepted a pass for another. In the second (juarter Lirtin shook himself loose for a tally. Despite the heavy score . rmy was rolling u]). Hoston l . never relin- (|uished the fight. In the first half the visitors completed two long passes but their attack could i)roceed no further.

UN, U II M. before a merciful final wiiistle ended the game. Long starred in the hackfield, making several spectacular runs, scoring two touchdowns and hooting three points after touchdown. The l a(ks were having little trouble behind the hard-charging and aggressive tackling of the forward wall. Nea l • every man on the squad saw service except for Frontczak, Wilson. Gillis, and Kelleher who were all on the in- jured list. The Boston line played a sound game as shown by the fact that not one of their running |)iays was thrown for a loss. Spurred by the desire of the Corps for vic- tory tile team girded itself for the traditional clash with Notre Dame in the Yankee Stadium, but once again the South Benders overshadowed .Vrmy. Matching reserve man-power with Army fight Notre Dame was victorious 19-7. The game ' s biggest thrill came at the outset when Army carried the ball the length of the field in ten spec- tacular plays. Before the powerful plunging of Frontczak the Irish line buckled and broke. Wilson made large gains around the ends, and Long ' s left-handetl jjasses baffled the secondary. The score was made by Sullivan who juggled Long ' s pass in the end zone and then hugged it for a touch- down. Long converted the extra point. During tiiis drive .Vrmy functioned smoothly and .showed a well-balancetl attack. Play was about even for the remainder of the first half with neitiier side threatening seriou.sly excejjt for a brief Notre Dame aerial outburst. .Vrmy led at the half 7-0. The Irish came out from the rest period full of fire. .Vrmy showed the .strain of its hard i)lay in Ihe initial jjcriod and ( ' a|)tain Wood was unable •396- m I to match Layden ' s endless stream of reserves. The Irish machine began to roll. Shortly after the second period got under way the South Bend team reached pay dirt. A line buck at mid-field failed and then Saggau uncorked a long pass to Brown. The rangy end caught the ball on the ' 20 and sprinted to the goal line unmolested. When the Irish failed to con- vert a glint of hope smouldered for the Army, but it was ((uickly quenched as the exhausted Army line gave way before the onslaughts of the Notre Dame team. Sheridan on a reverse found a gap in the forward wall and scored .standing up. Notre Dame assured themselves MILNER. J. w. of a ict()i- - when Tlicsiug. al ' lcr faking a pass, skirted right end for the last tally. . rmy deserves plenty of credit for its great stand against over- whelming odds. Woody Wilson, who was injured early in the battle, was sadly missed. Mig Harry Stella was a standout in the line. The husky tackle was downfield imder e -er. - i)unt and dumped the Irish safety man numerous times. Dob.son turned in a bang-up game at end and Huey Long played brilliantly in the backfield. In fact, the entire Army team showed uj) well. Though Xotre Dame was the victor, it was Army ' s Long and Stella who were the stars of the day. On November 5th, the . rmy eleven learned much to its surprise that games which are supposed to be breathers turn into real battles sometimes. The natural let-down after the defeat by Notre Dame, the prospect of a pushover, and a scrappy eleven from Franklin Marshall combined to give . rmy a hectic sixty minutes of football. This fighting little team from LKiHT, K. I)k V. 397 Lancaster, l ' ennsyl ania put uj) sucli a tifjlit tliat Captain Woud had ti) send in the first strin ; in orck ' r to win " 2()-l ' -2. The Diplomats opened the first period with a 4()-yard nni l)y Asjjhn and Hne smashes that took the ball to Army ' s ' ■20-yard mark. The onslanght ended with a fnmble re- covered hy Stella. Shortly after the bej inning of the second fjnarter, the Pennsylvanians completed a 50-yard j)ass placing the ball on the Army 1-yard stripe, and after two plays went over for a touchdown but failed to convert. A few minutes later Martin helped the Army even the score by throwing a ' 20-yard ])ass to McDavid, who ran . ' 50 yards for the touch- down. Again the extra point was missed and the half ended with the score ()-(). Long kicked the extra point. The little invaders were not to be dismayed, however, for they came back and scored with a fifty-five yard run by Flowers, but failed to make the extra jjoint. Hefore the end of the jx-riod Long took tiie liall on a beautiful SO-yard run for a touch- nrmissoN. .i. g. iii i VIJ tlown and made the extra j)oint. Though the game was definitely beyond reach. F. AL fought valiantly to the end. In the final jjeriod neither team scored and the game ended with Army ahead ' 20-l ' 2. Almost every man on the squad got into the game, including Schrader who had been out since the V.P.L game early in the season. Sullivan did some fine punting, Long, as usual, .starred in the backfield. and Due showed remarkable ability as a line plunger. The visitors had a hard line, a fast backfield. good passers, and plenty of fight. . fter the scare that F. L threw into . rniy the week before, ( " oach Hill Wood took •398- YEACER. F. J. LArTKRBA( H. W. M. no chance with the team from the University of Chattanooga which in- vaded West Point on November VZth. The entire first team with the exception of Stella started the game, and promptly scored two tonch- downs in the first ten minutes of play. A 3o-yard pass by Long, which Wilson snatched up and ran down the sidelines for 35 yards, accounted for the first score. The other came on a fifty yard march with Huey and Woo dy carrying the ball. Long converted both times. The rest of the half neither team made much headway. Wade ' s punting kept Chat- tanooga out of the hole. In the last minute three long passes by Jackson brought the ball to Army ' s five where the whistle ended the jjlay. Army ' s reserves got down to business in the last half and racked up three more touchdowns. Dubuisson set up the first with some fine passes. MuUin scored on a wide end sweep. Johnny Schrader sparked another drive to Chattanooga ' s five but the southerners stiffened and took the ball on downs. . t the beginning of the fouitli jx-riod with Ken Due smashing through I lie line. Army .scored again. Chattanooga cauie back with a l)ang and took the ott ' ensive. Orend completed three out of four passes for (JO yards and a touchdown. Army ' s last score came on an interce|)tion and thirty yard run by Kasj)ar. . few plays later St. John of Chattanooga broke through left tackle, cut back through Army ' s secondary, and outran Lotozo on a 70-yard sprint to the goal. This play marked the end of all scoring, making the final count 34-L ' 5 in . rmy ' s favor. Fear that the weak defense displayed •399- KASI ' ER, W. M. OREENE. L. V. HAHUIS. .1. F. against F.

Woody Wilson carried the kickotf to the ' ■2-t- yard line and Frontczak ' s plunges took the hall to the Tiger ten. The then desperate Princeton team held hut Mountain ' s at- tempted kick was blocked by Samuel. The ball bounced free in the end zone and, as Stella blocked out the nearest Princeton man. Little fell on the ball for Army ' s first .score. Early in the second quarter White started Princeton to its onlv score when he inter- cepted Long ' s pass in . rmy territory. On the next play Princeton ' s Man Mountain made ' 30 yard.s on the time-honored Statue of Liberty play around left end. Army held for three downs, but Allerdice finally com- pleted a jjass to Mountain waiting in the end zone. On the following kickoff Army refused to surrender the ball until they were again in the lead. Once more Frontczak ' s jjlunges carried the ball down the field. From the Princeton 30 Wilson shot a pass to Samuel who was downed on the 2-yard line. From there Wilson went over on the next play. The third quarter found Army on the march again. Huey Long returned Mountain ' s punt 30 yards in sjjectacular style, reversing his field four times. An end-around by Samuel, three sma.shing phniges by Frontczak, and three off-tackle slants by Wilson jiroduced the third and final touch- down. Harry Stella and Casey, Princeton ' s rugged center, were the out- standing defensive players of the day: Long and Wilson were outstaniling 400 BAILf:Y. it. .M. on offense. This hectic season of 1938 kept the Corps ' hair on end. Hounded by a relentless injury jinx, the Big Team was gallant in de- feat and victory. The hole at center was plug- ged solidly by Greene, Gillis, and Maxwell. Stella, Lotozo, Mather, and Light staked out the tackle slots. Due, Dubuisson, Schrader. Mullin, Martin, and Kelleher ably backed up the great leading backfield. The ends and guards who had been depended upon came through splendidly.

Brinker, ] IcDavid, Kohes, and Sullivan were out- standing on offense: Captain Samuel led a surprisingly gotxl defense. About all that can be said of the Columbia game is that we won it. Loose jjlayiug, frequent fumbles, and missed set-ups doniinatetl the entire game for both sides. Free tlirows were all that kept Columbia in the game; they made 11 out of 14. Army made only one. Kobes was high point man in this game although he was forced out on fouls late in the game. The contest wa.s not as exciting as the ' ' 27- ' ' 2. ' 5 score would indicate. Army took a trij) to meet Cornell nursing a three game undefeated recortl. Playing before a crowd of ,5, ()()(), .Vrmy showed a coiuplete recovery from the Columbia lettlown.

Philadeljihia ' s famous gymnasium. Brinker, at his jx-ak that night, easily scored ' 20 points, falling one short of the Palestra ' .s scoring record. Yet Army ' s standout performer was Frank Kobes. Guarding Penn ' s threat man, Mischo, Kol)es held him to one fiekl goal, while making (i himself. His main contribution, as during the entire season, was in reboinul recoveries. Army outscored Penn 5;3-34 for one of the worst defeats in Quaker history. Back again at West Point, Army outscored Georgetown 36-17 in a slow-moving game. The contest was four minutes old before Army .scored, and it was another four minutes before Georgetown scored by means of a charity shot. Gillem gave promise of I)ecoming a great player l)y dump- ing in .5 field goals. One was one of the longest shots of the sea.son, taken from midcourt at the side line. .Vrmy relied chiefly on close guarding and long shots. This game was a distinct letdown after the crushing defeat administereil Penn the week before. Duke arrived next, fresh from a vic- tory o ' er Navy.

Sanuiel was outstanding (lefensi ely and in addition added (i j)oin(s to Army ' s total, ' ale was most thoroughly subdued in this one of Army ' s three big grudge battles. The next grudge battle came with Syracuse innnediately after the one of the week before. .Vfter nuich scouting Syracuse had evolved a sy.stem calcu- lated to stop Brinker. but when he did not play they were rather at loose ends.

At the half St. Johns led 17-14. but Army knotted the count at 19- all befoi-e the last half was . ' 5 miiuites old. Shortly thereafter Kobes was ejected on personal fouls, and with him went Army ' s control of the ball. Playing without Brinker and Kobes, Army was outclassed. St. Johns pulled away steadily to achieve a triumph of ;57- ' -27. Gillem led the scoring of both sides with 11 points, while Kobes was Army ' s big gun in floor play. His loss was severely felt, and may have seriously affected the outcome. As the new captain, Gillem will have some trouble in rounding out a team of this year ' s caliber, but from such men as Rastetter, Yeager, Larson.

" Touch " started out with a hare skeleloii of lettermen Sherhurne, . mick, Finn, (lay. Con- ner, C.l ' ., and Bradley. Every dei)artment of the team — attack, mid-field, and defense — had to be rebuilt . There were a host of players waiting for berths on the team, almost all of whom hatl had a ta.ste of experience the sea.son before. For mid-field there was Iloisington, Keller, Patrick, Brinker. Mearns, Bowie, and Max- well, K.B. On the attack, there was Bollard, Maloney, and Gilleni. and on the defense Wilson. W.W.. Edwards, and Schwenk were ready for work. Then too, there were yearlings vip from last year ' s Plebe squad. The first game, played at Penn State, resembled more a snow fight than a lacrosse game. The lines of the field were marked by paths cut through the three inch blanket of snow. Rain in the first half followed by snow in the second half made the visibility exceedingly poor.

Though outphiying Rutgers for the remainder of tlie game, the team was unable to net more than three goals. This game was one of the most active ones that Army has ever played. The midfield of Finn, Hoisington, and Keller played nearly sixty minutes of the game, never (lr()p])ing a notch of sj eed. Bollard led the Army team in its victory over Swathmore l.S-1. He scored four goals. . highly rated St. John ' s team was downed by our team 7-i. The honors in this game go to the defense. Their work made it almost impossible for tlu ' .loliiinics to score.

Later in the game our team opened uj) and fim ' shed going strong. The Army team at Princeton was lianjiy the same team llial had tlius far piled up ST goals to the opponent ' s ' -21. The team play was ragged in every (l i)arl nuiit . The game was jjlayed during a hot, sinmy afternoon, and as a result the reserves were ire(|uently called upon as replacements. 1 l ' IS , .1 i.

The Army- Navy laerosse f ame was played at ' e.-.l I ' oiiil. Hesides wiiuiiiif; from us l()-. ' 5, the Navy completed an undefeated season and was recof nized as the national champion. ' Piiey well deser ( ' d tliis honor as they showed themselves to he an excellent team throughout. Though out- classed, the . rmy team i)la_ ' ed a good hard game and went down figliling to the final whistle. The team ' s captain for 1 !). ' !!), .Iimm, - Keller, steady and dependable both on and off the field, should lead his team to the op of the list. If an o|)ponent goes down as the result of a hard l)ody-l)l()ck, you can bet odds that it was Jinnny who did it. Yon can also bet the same odds that Jimmy gets up with hardly- a scratch. Hard rumiing, excellent blocks, straight passing, and smart playing cliaracterize his style of l)lay. I ' erry lloisington did a fine job at the center {)osition this year. Credit goes to him for getting the ball in Army ' s jjossession a majority of the time. His setting up plays in the front of the goal and his passing in to IJollard on the crease have netted many an Army score. Maxwell, V.. i.. has alwa ■s turned in a good game for the mid-fielders. He is an excellent dodger and possesses the ability to keep the ball in his stick even when the going is the hardest. He is fast, aggressive, and untiring. IJrinker has had almost the same success with lacrosse as he has had with basketball. He is an expert at getting away from the man who is 417 WILSON, W. W. guanlin r hjni. The instant his opponent turns his liead, Brinker leaves him standing there flat- footed. ) Bolhird is the most polished player that we I have on the squad. He shoots at the goal either right or left-handed and from any position. Our ■j past games have proved that it is impossible to keep him from scoring. The secret of his success is that he shoots immediately upon receiving the ball. Bradley ' s ability to play lacros.se netted him a berth on the . 11-Ameri- can Lacrosse Team. Certainly, this .speaks for itself. He is invaluable when it comes to clearing out the ball and getting it up to the attack. In short, he is the key-man of our defense. " Baldy " Edwards is the roughest and toughest defense man on the squad. He is big, fast, and a natural-born blocker. In crediting him for his ability to play lacrosse we mu.st not forget to mention that " Curly ' s " humor keeps the spirit of the squad up to a peak all of the time. " Woody " Wilson came out for lacrosse last year and started oiit on the first team. Being a natural-born athlete, he had little or no trouble learn- ing the game. When he gets the ball in his stick and starts up toward the attack, there is not a man on the field that can catch him. He is one of our finest defense players. Jim Schwenk is another oni ' of our jjlayers who did not conic out for lacrosse until last year. A few i n s of |)ractici ' and he was right U]) in the SCHWENK, J. T. L. 418 I V,;§li2ai» LANE, B. G. IlllM, Mn A w top of our (k ' tViisf players. Jim is n ' . fast, aiul rough. He blocks witli the same vigor in a ht- f-rosse game as he does in a foothall game. Dick Bowie has the hardest shot on tlic scpiad. Dick is one of tlie best team jjlaxcrs tliat we liave. Wlien lie guards a man, llial man miglil jnsi as well gi -e up all hope of scoring. Few. if any, : r ever scoreil on him. Walter ami adds to our jMiwer in the attack. He knows how to handle his stick and has a good eye for tiie goal. Words are slow from this lad with the southern drawl, hut he shows plenty of speed on the lacrosse field. Spragins plays both defense and attack and does a fine job in either position. He handles his stick well especially when it comes to taking the ball away fnmi his opponent. Sj)ragins is a big man and knows how to use his weigiit when he (lodges or runs over a man. bane, MA ' ,., .saw a good deal of action in the goal this year. He is quick, has a keen eye, and does a good job of directing the defense so that they keep the attacking players out of range of the goal. The .Vrmy squad is training a galaxy of future lacros.se stars. Here are .some to look for— Gillem, Fairlamb, Swift. Eaton. Muller. the England brothers, Frontczak, Ferrill, and Brousseau. Ip from the Plebe squad we have— Clark. H.W., Einstein. Grygiel. Irwin. Mitchell. Rising. Sands, Sykes, Tate, and Thigpen. Outstanding of this group is (Jillem who was the only Yearling last year to make his major " . " . He is one of our best attack 419 GILLEM, A. C. players. The job of l)iiil(lin i ' u]) our lacrosse team is a ])arti(ularly diffieiilt one. Unlike all other sports, it is necessary here at West Point to .start from scratch. Few men have seen or even heard of the game before they entered the Aca- demy. Credit goes to Coach Touchstone and to ]As. Wilson, Pressley, and Beeler. l)iit we must not forfi ' et all of the players who work almost the year round .so that Army can put as fine a team on the field as any other college. Previously there has not been a place to practice during the winter months. The new field house offers such a place, and the squad has used it during the past winter. " Touch, " Lt. Pressley, and Lt. Beeler have been there almost every afternoon giving each pla. er individual attention, and there have always been enough men present to form two teams for a scrimmage. This article would not be complete without mentioning the fine spirit which prevails in this scjuad. It is second to none here at the Point. There are approximately a hundred men playing lacrosse here, and every man does his share to make this an Army Team. With their driving spirit, excellent coaching, and fine team work Army lacrosse is on the ascent, and we are all wishing Jimmy Keller and his boys a lot of success in giving Army another of its famous lacrosse teams as well as a fourth victory in this sport over the " Crabtown Eabble.

By continuing the policy of early season practices in the gymnasium which he started his first year as coach, and with the emphasis on batting practice in the cages. Coach French had his hard-hitting club in excellent condition for the opening game early in April. Bad weather, however, kept the team off the diamond vnitil a few days before the oi)ener resulting in a shaky start in the season ' s first few games. Once under way, the team swept asiile all opposition, bowing only to an undefeated Duke and a Navy team that was the strongest in years. On April 13, General Benedict threw out the first ball. The Army team lost the opener to Wesleyan by a score of 4 to " 2. It was a pitching battle witli Cotter of Wesleyan just shading Lipscomb of Army. Krismaii and Lahti each scored for Army, with Don Saimders qontriljuting the season ' s first two-l)agger. Durbin.

Captain Bob Kasj)er led Army ' s well-rounded club. " Bottle " held down right field, a position he played for three successive seasons. One of the Army ' s heaviest guns, he hit hard and long, and was responsible for more than one Army rally leading to victory. Heroic work by Bob against ' ale started the fireworks leading to the top- ping of the Elis 7 to . ' 5. .Vgainst Xavy Kasper alone could cope with Bruckel ' s j)itching when he dro e Dm-bin home preventing an Army shutout. As formidable on defense as on offense, Kasper will be I ' 426 ' remembered for the j)iston-like (lri e of liis lef s in backing lip first. Weinnig finished his last season f(jr Army with jjrobably the long- est sustained cluster of blows to his credit that Army has ever seen. Shaded by Esau for the Rmimaker ' s Tro])hy, Weinnig was never- theless always on base to tally when a long drive came. More often than not, lie was well on the way home, or scored himself, for his homers and tri])les were nearly as frequent as his singles. At center, AVeinnig ' s immaculate record of fielding knew no peers. The first class trio in the outfield was completed by Lahti at right field. The home run hole between ( " idluni and the Bachelors ' Build- ing was always well I)ottled u|) l y Lahti. Often he had to run back to tiic road, but his glove was glued to any fly. Lahti ' s hitting fell oft " at times, but his long blows usually told in the crises. In the infield Durbin ' s clean-cut fielding often gave him both an assist and a putout on double plays. As a first classman, he con- tijiued a long record of dazzling speed anil heady thinking. Never still or noiseless for a minute. Durbius chatter li " ened u]) the infield. His hitting was always tops. While not a slugger, nurbin always menaced the op|)onent ' s pitching with safeties. t shortstop. Don Saunders ably filled I he hot spot. Don was never a sparkling jjlayer, but his consistent fielding and conservative field generalsliij) were steadying influences that soothed harassed nerves and stopped erratic fielding during opponents " rallies. .lannarone, who occasionally relie ed Saunders at short, played good ball and knocked the ball a little harder than Don in the pincin ' s. On tliird, ■ " Hooks ' " ' SCagei ' . a yearling, was molded from a sticky- fingered football end into an outstanding ball jjlayi ' r.

Cajjtain-elect Kail backed up the plate, helix ' d by ' oun i ' Hill Kasper. Wild i)itches never a])peared in the record after the amazing .sto])s by these two. Kas])er has a heavier bat, but both these men will be " aluable in the building of next years batting order. Andy Lipscoml) after a slow .start in two of the openers came back strong and ably bore his half share of the pitching load by winning handily o er all but impregnable Duke in late season games. Volatile and carefree, Andy boosted the morale of the team continuously with his ready wit and humorous ])arries. Tom I)a is shared the majority of the calls with Li|)scoml). Un- beaten until the Navy game. Tom never lost control of any situation and with his hitting often hel])ed to win his own ball game. .V pitcher with a change of pace imj)erce] tible to batters, this southerner of the slow drawl and action was astonishing in his fielding. So many I)oj) flies fomid their way to Davis that the seven other men on the field seemed unnecessary. Freddy bough and Xanney were excellent relief pitchers for Lipscomb and Davis. With a Navy defeat to avenge, . .rmy is looking forward to a suc- cessful season under Wally French and Captain-elect Sammy Kail. Il I I ' 428 ?• . TRACK 1 ' 5 5 " Toth: Larsen: Bailev. B.

Johns Hopkins University came to West Point feeling primed for victory, but they left us with a 3-0 defeat.

Harvard ' s strong team handed us oiu- worst defeat of tlie season the next Saturday with a score of 3-1. but the Army team staged a rally to win from MassacJiusetts Institute of Technology four days later. This year Arm - inaugurated an annual Soccer game series with the T ' nited States Xa al Academy by winning the initiid engagement ' .3-1. Till- game was ])layed in a freezing rain.

This was another extremely well played game, both teams were on edge and doing their best; unfortunately for Army, her scoring punch did not come through in the last period and Colgate ' s ilid. Hitting their top form again, the effects of good coaching were clearly evident when Hamilton was beaten S- ' i. Fast skating and hard playing featured this game. The fast Cornell team found the Army more than a match, dropping its contest 4-1. The highlight of the hockey season is the annual international contest with the Royal Military College of Canada. This year the team travelled to Kingston to meet the gentlemen cadets on their own ground. The team was resolved to bring home a victory, and for the first time of the sixteen games of the series Army was victorious. It was a fine team that went onto the ice that night to meet the equally fine R.M.C. team. There was not going to be any traditional aftermath of " We ' ll beat them next year " — it was this year, and there was jjlenty of fight in the six men as the opening whistle l)lew. The crowd was amazed at the swiftness of Army ' s attack. Within the first ten minutes Grant and Devlin had scored. The one hundred and some odd R.M.C. cadets designated as Army rooters cheered wildly even though it meant that their own team was being de- feated.

The second period was soon in progress, there was a lot of liard, fast. sensational hockey, with both sides doing wonderful jobs. There has never been a penalty in any of the games, but this did not mean the opponents were easy on one another. Hard and clean checking was abundant. The second period ended willi the sc-ore still at " i-l. The third jx ' riod saw both teams more fidl of fight than ever. Army fighting to win its first victory and R.M.C. trying just as liard I o preserve its record. McCaffrey, in the oix-niiig minulo of this period, skated through the entire R.M.C. team, and with all his weight beliind his stick put the puck in the cage, making the score S-l. R.M.C. attempted a comel)ac ' k and fiv» ' mimites later they succee led in scoring again. Moth teams now set themselves for the final fi ' w minutes. The exceptional work of Larkin at goal and the constant threat of West I ' oint ' s fast lines kei)t the .score at . ' 5- ' -2 until the final wiiislle. It was outstanding ability and teamwork that won the well-earned victory. In spite of the loss of a large mnnl)er of men. prospects for next yvnr si ill seem vvvy ])romisiug. With the gi ' adiialion of Curt in. (irant, Edwards, Nolan, Snu ' th, and McCatfre_ -, the team will lose st)me of its best players. However, Devlin, Donohue, Heidtke,Mirrell.(.iibert, Wood- ruff ' , and Salisbury should be able to take .Vrmy through another successful season.

Hrewerton was again a (K)ul)ie winner in two hard races, defeating ( " aUa- haii in the iW yard free-style and Stavers in the cjuarter-mile. C ' randall was again outstanding in the dives, and Colwell and (iarrett won the first and second j hices in tiieir events in achlition to being members of the winning rehiy team. Colwell managed to touch a fraction of a second ahead of (iarrett in the 50 yard free-style, but Garrett turned the tables in outtouching his teammate in the 100 yard free-st ■le by a fraction, thereby dividing the honors between the two. The Hrown swimmers bested a game . rmy team . ' 51-44 in the sixth meet of the season. Neither Hrewerton nor Garrett participate l in this meet, the first being shocked out of a few tenths by the Department of Electricity, and Garrett being c-onfined to the hospital due to illness. However, .Vrmy did take both first and second place in the dive as well as in the ((uarter-mile. and first in the 400 yard free-style relay. ( " ai)tain ( " randall won the dive with ease in his usual stream-lined precision diving. To climax the " ;5!) season with a blaze of glory, .Vrmy ' s swimmers triunii)lied over Navy at .Vnnapolis 48- ' 27 in the first a(|uatic contest ever to be held between the service academies. The . rmy victory COLE.MA.N ' , R. M. .452. BREWERTON, H. R. was decisive, witli firsts in hotli I ' t ' lays and in five oi the seven in(li i(lua events. Garrett and Captain-elect IJrewerton ajjain ])r() ed to he Army ' s ace performers. IJol) (Jarrett fi;ained an easy first in tlie 100 yard free-styh ' and swam the anchor ]eg in hotli relays. The Medley Relay, wliich opened the meet, was the most excitinji ' of the match. Jaqiies f;;ave the Navy a yard advantage in the hack stroke lap, but this was made up by lionham of . rmy. Then (larrett dro c through the free-st le to win 1 - a yard and a half. Warner, the Navy ' s first swimmer in the tree-style relay, also took the lead. l)ut O ' Neil, Colwell. and (iarrett. the next .Vrmy swimmers gained margins and i)iled u]) a sid)stantial lead. At the end of the meet. IJarnett, manager of the team, was catapulti ' d into the pool as a traditional gesture of ictor . It is lioped that this custom will have cause for re])etition many times in the meets to follow Army ' s first con(|uest of Navy in lu-r own element. Army had only one representative at tlie Hastern Intercollegiate Cham- pion.ships this year. Hut Hob Carrett brouglit home (he championship in the .50 yard free-style and second in the 100 yard free-style. Cood of n r managed to edge Bob into second place in the hun- lred. but Hob defeated Dun- can of " ' ale in the fifty to win the Championship from a field containing the best in sprin- ters that the East has to offer.

The next week the team travelled to Washington to meet Maryland ' s undefeated Southern Conference ( ' ham])ions and wlu-re the team met its onl - defeat of the year by a 4 ' v;- ' 5 ' 2 • " ' Core. The meet was closely fought, and were it not for a disputed technicality on close-in boxing, victory would l)robably have been ours..Vrmy went into the Ea.stern Inter- collegiates at Syracuse a favor- ite and this was shown to be ju.stified when the team took C01C.HL[N.

The season was unusual in that sixteen men participatetl in varsity matches during the year. The word invincible may quite readily be applied to Lavendusky who completetl his second season undefeated and retained his Eastern Intercollegiate title in the 1 ' 20 pound class. Tom Shanley, 1988 Eastern Intercollegiate S5 jjound champion, graduated to the 145 ])ound class and turned in four victories in dual meets and finished his boxing career by winning the Intercollegiate Championship. In winning the title he defeated Stauber of Syracuse who vanqui.shed him during the early j)art of the season. Captain Hull alternated with Negley in the 155 and 1()5 pound clas.ses and each was responsible for five victories in dual meets. Hull proved his superiority at the Intercollegiates and took the 155 pound championship. Negley, a favorite, was steadily winning in a preliminary when the referee stopped the bout because of a badly cut eye. Stella completed the regular season unbeaten and met defeat only at the hands of Siemer, twice Intercollegiate champion, in the finals at Syracuse. Clement and Rising, newcomers to the varsity, had a liighly successful season. Each lost only one match dm-ing the dual comi)e- tition, and each took a third place at the Intercollegiates in the l ' -27 and 135 pound classes respectively. Taylor, actually a 155 ])()un(ler. after a fine showi ng in two dual meets took a third j)lace in the 175 pound class at Intercollegiates. LAVENDUSKY. W. W. 456 F RISI.NG. H. N.

The season ojjened against X.Y.U. when Army lost its only dual meet of the regidar schedule. However, this match, against a team undefeated for two years, served to show that the early season reverses in practice had not been without value. The early sea.son dark horse was the sal)re stiuail. Rorick formed the back-hone of this team. Strock was transferred from ej)ee to sal)re and Dalziel was developed as a dependai)le No. , ' 5 man. The good work of these men was insured by the competition of Jacobs, Clinton, and Campbell. Princeton was the second match on the schedule. Smith won all his bouts in epee as Army took the meet 17-10. The following week Columbia was defeated 16-10 while Rorick dujjlicated in sabre Smith ' s achievement of the week before. Rorick was again a triple winner when Army defeated Yale 16-11. C.{ N.Y. and PVncer ' s Club, the remaining dual meets, were defeated 10-11 and 16-11.

The Eastern Intercollegiate Meet held at Princeton to determine the individual champions of the League, proved that Army, despite their |)revioiis defeat by Temple, was the outstanding team. Keyed to a fine ])oint and determined to win. Army ' s gymnasts dominated the meet des])ite the loss of Bowen because of a twisted knee. Sears, by virtue of winning the championship on the horizontal bar and ])iirallel bars, and |)la(ing third in the rings, thus garnering a hundretl points more than his nearest op])onent. was declared the best all-around gymnast. Whalen du])licated his performance of last year, winning the side horse champion- shi]), with Wohner ])lacing tiiird and Krauss tying for foiu ' th. At the same time Belardi was winning the rope climb, Richardson being third; in addition. Frost placed fourth on the horizontal bar and Krauss third on the ])arallel bars. Throughout the season Bob Sears, the finest gymnast ever developed at West Point, was again outstanding, and for his third successive year was the recipient of the Pierce Ciu ' rier Foster Award, the other recipient being Krauss, captain-elect for next year. Krauss, a ])t)tential cham])ion on the parallel bars last year, gave up this opportuTnty in order to work side horse also, thus strengthening the team as a whole. Belardi and Whalen will be missed ne.xt year, as will Frost and Ostberg. How- ever, Wohner, O ' Keefe, Rich- ardson, and Emery are ex- pected to fill their .shoes ably. 1 UOWEN. U. 1.. 460 KRAUSS, P.

Today, before a large crowd of -isitors in Michie Stadium XaYV defeated Army in the annual service Lacrosse battle by the large score of lO-.S. It was the eighth Navy victory in the eleven service contests. The game showed the s]jirit that is displayed only when these two schools meet, but Navy dominated the j)lay for the first two periods to salt away the game. In the second half Army rallied in an effort to save the score from being too lop-sided. I?y dint of Connor ' s brilliant work in the goal Army was able to jmv- vent Navy from coni])letel. filling tlic net with labeled shots. The Navy started quickly and garnered six goals before Army was able to work its close de- fense to stop the onrush.

" Jheir report, knouvi as " 7he Caliber Report " has served as the basis jor Ordnance desiijn since that time. 7r Jt is iittereili}ig to note that our army now has a howitzer in all caliber ranges. The 75 mm pack howitzer, developed ajter the World War, has been placed on a rubber-tired mount to give it greater mobility. The 105 mm howitzer has been designed to augment the light howitzer class, ir Jn the medium jield is the old §land- by, the Schneider 155 mm howitzer, shown on the opposite page. Jt has been placed on a new mobile mount and is at present Slandard ee uipment in our army. Experiments are being made on a split trail jor this howitzer to increase its maximum angle oj elevation. On the basis of the excellent service given by this weapon in the World War, it is assumed that in any juture conjlid it will be capable oj perjorming all the missions ordinarily assigned to medium howitzers, t: Jn the heavy howitzer class the 8 inch howitzer has been modijled and placed on a mobile mount which is also used jor the 155 mm gun. This is the weapon shown on the cover oj this volume, i? The idea oj a dual-purpose mount was jirSl sugge ed by the Caliber Board. Jt has been incorporated in many designs, hut as yet the 8 inch howitzer- i55 mm gun combination is the only one which has proved successjul. This weapon contains many oj the jeatures oj modern design pradice. At 45 degrees it will jire at a range oj isooo yards. The mount is supported on a selj -contained pede al during jlring and has a split trail. The weapon is trador- drawn and the jad that it can be drawn by a heavy truck on good roads insures greater mobility jor the heavy artillery in the juture. COMMITTEE lmeh; Uavis M. C; Hov The Honor Committee, composed of repre- sentatives chosen by the first class of each com- j)any. is charged with the duty of maintaining tile high honor standards which have become traditional at West Point, and with transmitting the basic principles of the honor code from class to class. The problem of nj)holding these stand- ards must of necessity begin with the fourth classmen immediately after their arrival at the Military Academy. A course of instruction de- signed to impress on the new cadet the high position of the honor code in the life of a cadet is included in his early training, and thereafter he is expected to adhere to the code both in Iclter and in s])iril. ' I ' he word " system " as fre(|uently ap])lied to our honor code, is in reality a misnomer for it iuiplics a set of hard and fast rules wliicli a per- son is forced to follow under threat of ])unish- ment. On the contrary- honor is a trait wliich nnist develo]) from wiliun an indixidual. It cannot be forced on him from without. The basis of the honor code is honestv. A cadet H.; Myers; Ewell; Studer; Cirtix, R. D. d; Little; Pdlliam; Cantrell is expected to tell the truth at all times, and to be honest in all his dealings, both in the class- room and elsewhere. Contrary to pojjidar opinion, the Honor Com- mittee is not a police force nor a vigilance com- mittee. It is not om- jjurpose to snoop and search for honor violations nor is it within our power to mete out punishment to violators of the honor code. That is reserved for higher authority. . ct- ing on the old adage " an ounce of j)revention is worth a pound of cure " we attemj t to forestall missteps by an adetpiate coiu ' se of instruction supplemented by interpretations involving honor c|uestions as they nuiy arise from time to time tlu ' ougiiout tlie year. Of our honor code we are justly proud. There is no c-adet or graduate who will not agree whole- lieai ' ti ' diy that a higii lionor standard is by far tlu ' inost important benefit that a man can derive from West Point. Fornndas. e((uations. dates, etc.. will l)c forgotten in after years. l)ut a high sense of honor, once imj)ressed. lives on [lerma- 1 nentlv. 492 FIRST GLASS OFFICERS LoNCi. C.

For many years musical activities of one kintl or another have been operative at the Academy, and although it makes no conscious endeavor to create in a cadet an unusual interest in this jjarticular field. West Point does recognize among its wards the presence of such interests and, fm-thermore, encour- ages their cultivation. The oldest and foremost organization in which the cultivation of these musical interests is made to bear fruit is the Cadet Chapel Choir under the direction of Mr.F. C.Mayer. Each week its 100 voices brighten the religious services in the beautiful and stately Cadet Chapel, a fact of which all those who are connected with the Academy are i)articularly ] routl. Its siiperior (|uality inspires many visitors to return to West Point for Sunday inoi ' u- ing services. But the singing of this choir is, to be sure, not con- fined entirely within the chapel walls. Its two annual visits to New York City are well known antl its performances there invaria- l)ly t he sid)ject of favoral)l( ' cDUuni ' ut. Successful radio l roa(lcasts, too, are among its accomi)lislunents. The Cadet Cha])el Choir, however, has a rival in the Catholic Chapel Choir, which, although considerably smaller, contains some of tiic l)est voices in the Corps. It, too, receives a Irip to New York City each year. The other singing grouj) in tlie Corps, the Cadet (di-e Club, is of more recent origin. Tliis organization was started four years ago by a small group of cadets bearing the appellation " The 502 av-;r :ij sfciisi. CAP IK) I. I ( ( II I ' K I, ( IK) I I! Siiif;in j ( " horns.

Throughout the car is other new evi- dence of ex fra buHt-in va!ue. Bodies are impressively quiet and extremely comfortable. Hydraulic brakes, rigidly held to Ford standards of precision and safety, now add to Ford handling ease. Heading the line in style and extra luxury is the De Luxe Ford car.

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 Quality is built into every foot of wire and cable that leaves the plant. Okonite Quality is responsible for the fine operating record of Okonite Products everywhere.

As the frontier passed from our life and men and women obtained more leisure, athletic sports began to develop.

We at Spalding ' s who have assisted in the introduction and development of tennis, golf, and other adult games, as well as .scholastic and i)rofessional sports like football and baseball, are proud of our contribution.

T H. 560 FIFTY YEARS A-GROWING Milestones of film progress emphasize the amazingly short time in which the motion picture has been elevated to the front rank of artistic entertainment. Thomas A. Edison photographed motion in 1889 . . . Pic- tures were projected on a theatre screen in 1896 . . . The first complete story was filmed in 1903 . . . D. W. Griffith realized the possibilities of the screen in The Birth of a Nation in 1914 . . . Sound came in 1928. In 1939 — fifty years after Edison invented the Kinetoscope and twenty-five years after Griffith produced his master- piece — the motion picture has reached complete artistic maturity. The American art-industry has been only fifty years a-grow- ing. It is observing its Golden Jubilee by marshalling the creative genius of its 276 arts, crafts and professions to pro- duce entertainment for YOU. III ST II I IM Tfl K i» OF A lli:iMt A. I r. WILI, H.

This work is expresslv provided for in the char- ter granted the Red Cross by Congress in 1905. The Red Cross feels that in carrying out the mandates of Congress it is acting for the people. In peacetime the Red Cross discharges its obligation through its vast network of Chapters which cover every county in America. Last year special workers in 3,441 communities gave practical and understanding help to ex-service men or their families and aided the enlisted man and his family. Other Red Cross workers stationed in Government hospitals and regional offices of the " eterans Administration did their part. Red Cross field directors, residing in Armw Na . Marine Corps and Coast Ciuard stations, helped men in active service and their families. In all, the Red Cross last year helped more than 265,000 service or ex-service men and their families surmount pressing economic ob- stacles, iron out personal problems and prove valid service-connected or service-incurred claims for compensation or hospitalization. In time of •ar the American Red Cross is conducted under the Treaty of Geneva, to which 61 other nations are signatories. Because the Red Cross acts for the people it is supported by them. Its work for the armed forces and for veterans is financed through the membership of milli(ms who join at the time of the annual Roll Call, held each ear between Armistice Dav and Thanksgivinij. i I 22 EA Blue Uniforms MADE TO INDIVIDUAL MEASUREMENTS Custom Made Boots 1 Sam Browne Belts Shirts — Caps Riding Apparel SEE OUR PERIODICAL DISPLAY AT ALL MILITARY POSTS CATALOGUE SUBMITTED ON REQUEST LJ nironn l ompany foiiaralii dtin is to James B.
