JAMES ROBERT WENDT, JR. BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA Senatorial Jimmie took West Point in an easy stride until he got tripped by a pair of First Sergeant chevrons — and then he only lengthened his stride. Though an " engineer " at heart, he never let work interfere with pla -, his fondness for fun winning hini many friends. His ten o ' clock critiques on strategy drew regular audiences, but he was always readv to trade an entire Napoleonic campaign for a good " rat-race. " A master in getting the maximum done with minimum elTort, Jimmie should prove an asset in " any man ' s army. " " Jimmie " Corporal (3-2) First Sirgeaiit (i) Hop Manager (4-3-2-J). ANTHONY LEWIS WERMUTH PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA Ar v Hop shoes, pen and ink, and books galore; boundless energy, yet that ability to curl up on a red comforter everv so often. Studies allowed but little time for Po;; fr-editing, so Tony decided against studying. He was able to do so because of his ability to grasp new ideas quickly. His cadet career, a four year struggle between dreamer and doer with the latter winning by a decided nose. ' oted by femmes the best dancer in the Academy, the floor at Cullum misses this " smoothie.

RODERICK WETHERILL CHICAGO, ILLINOIS Soicttoritil Meet our nomination for the title of " The man who gets along the bestest with the mostest. " A careless wave of his hand or an apathetic shrug of his shoulders formed your first impression of him, but behind that there was am- bition and real ability, plus an eager- ness to do his bit of every " soiree. " Rod succeeded by applying common sense, judiciouslv mixed with cold " spec, " to all our momentous prob- lems. A scion of the Old Army, he had a lot of footsteps to fill. He filled them.

s CLYDE H. WEBB, JR. ELDORADO, ILLINOIS Coiigressioual A quick analytical mind functioning coolly and persistently, absorbing knowledge with almost sacrilegious ease; a definite leaning, toward the scientific and practical, an assumed in- souciant attitude masking an essen- tially conscientious make-up, an even disposition, but one who will balk and kick if sufficiently aggravated, that is Clyde. With hands that push pen or caisson with equal nonchalance and familiarity, and facial acrobatics rang- ing from " Judgment Day " to " Baby Dumpling " inclusive, Clyde has a streak of mischief and humor heralded by an unmistakable in-the-cookie-jar- again expression.

SANFORD HAR ' EY WEBSTER KINGSTON, RHODE ISLAND Sen a tor hi I An atavistic instinct, possibly dating back to the Roman games, has carried Sammie far afield from the professorial atmosphere of Rhode Island in which he was reared. A master at tennis and squash, a champion of these sports — his gallery was composed of " not fans, " " but friends, " and they were legion. S.H.W. — " Shady, Hard to Handle " Webster was tops. Admired by all for his tenacity, resourcefulness, and conviviality, he held a place in the affection of his classmates.

ELMORE, ALABAMA Congressional The cold gray walls looked down with awe and envy: Stonewall had ar- rived, and his determined, serious, dead-pan countenance put to shame the famed sober mood of the Academy architecture. Straight-backed, and thunderous of voice, plebes quivered and classmates hesitated while stripes grew on his jacket one by one; finally the First Battalion was following him to meals. More at ease on a red com- forter, he nevertheless found time to lean back in his chair and between nods acquired sufficient knowledge to graduate.

. 1 MANFORD JAY WETZEL RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA Congressional From California, but not Fort Scott, Wetz was a bit stubborn and not much of a " draggoid; " but he got his share of the mail. He served his time here very quietly with a firm belief in the motto, " If you don ' t understand it, ' spec ' it. " The result was that he was almost an " engineer, " although he still Jiked the Infantry. But you can ' t keep a good man down so the Air Corps finally won out. " Wstx ' Servant (i). ROBERT ILA WHEAT CONWAY, ARKANSAS Senatorial Rev. Trigo, or Lil ' Abner; they serve as an introduction to one and the same — that happy-go-lucky, carefree chap from Arkansas. We heard his voice above the roar of every gather- ing and remember him as one who en- joyed most his own sense of humor. And as his witticisms and friendliness drew him toward his classmates, so an active, calculating brain sustained him well in the classroom. No matter what the occasion, he was there in the thick of the fight and invariably on the winning side. " Trigo " StrgtMit 0) Cjiia ChaprI Choir (4-}-!

Optimistic, fun loving, friendly, Fred left West Point as natural and unspoiled as the day he entered. With his broad body and fine competitive spirit, Fred was excellent material for Army athletic teams, but his first love, the A.B., confined his talents to handball and squash. Con- scientious, dogged, liked by everyone, Fred entered the Army with the whole- some ambition to be a good officer. " Flave " Sergeant (i) Football (,4-2-1} Goat Football (2) Squash Club C2-J). §m
