THE ACADEMIC BOARD UN the niiinls of cadcrs rhc .Kcadcinic Board i.s a Fahuk)iis hodv that meets in the inner recesses ot the administration buildiiii in a richlv decH)rated room, and ponders prob- lems, grave and quite hevond the comprehension of cadets. Surprisingly enough, this impression is well founded, hut it is even irore surprising that the .ictu.il functions of this board are not well known I ' or it is this board that controls the tr. lining of each and every West Pointer in that it determines the conduct of their lives and the subjects which they will studv while at the .Vcadeiin- ,ind inasmuch as it puts the tools of life and profession in their hands, sh.ipes their destinv In light ot the hict that in the past the graduates of West Point have had a large hand in determining the course of the nation in peace, and have led our armies in wars at home and in foreign lands, the Academic Board may be thought of as one of the most important bodies in the nation. The decisions of this group of scientists, pedagogues, and soldiers are grave and momentous; positit)n on the Board is fr. night with responsibilitw 51 -s -. m f Capt. L. J. Lincoln, Capt.

The Civil Engineering course is concerned chiefly with the funda- mental theories of structural designs in wood and concrete, and serves as a basis for the sub-course in Military Engineering, which covers the theory of such structures as bridges, roads, fortifications, and barriers. The sub-course in Military History, the only one of its kind in the United States, is used as an introduction to advanced study in higher tactics and strategy. It is further used to note the characters of and principles employed by the great generals of history. Thus the course affords an excellent back- ground to the general knowledge of an officer. Lt. Col. Stamps, Professor 52 J« DEPARTMENT OF LAW II ' I H I N . in 1836, Law was introduced at West i ' oint, its purpose was to s;ivc to the cadet merely a passing knowledge of Law so rh.it he might speak inteiligciith ' on tliat suliject. The passage of a century has brought radical changes in both the pur- pose and administration of Law at West Point. The Academic Board has come to re.ilizc tii.it the stud - of L.iw has special training values par- ticularly useful to military men — the development of powers of analysis and a sense of relative values. These developed faculties furnish an officer a sound basis tor his " F.stimatc ot the situation, " so important in a suc- cessful military career. Today the eighty-live hours granted to the Law Department are di ided into I ' lemcntary Law, Criminal Law, Ivvidence, and ConstitutK)nal Law culminating in . Iilitar - Law. Thus the graduate goes forth fully familiar with the preparation and investiga- tion of charges, the prosecution, defense, and trial of cases before courts-martial — a knowledge necessary to every officer from the very beginning of his career.

We depart armed with these treasures and with our minds equipped to trace a comprehensive path through the snarl of national and international problems. The Department received us as Yearlings and gave us a lirm foundation and an insight into international rela- tions by providing a course in European History. The Academic Board then separated us from the Department for a year that we might digest our new found knowledge and applv it where possible to the fast moving current of world events. First Class year offered courses m Government, Economics, and Military Law which rounded out our knowledge leaving us capable to interpret national poli- cies and politics and also equipped to understand the rules of our profession. DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS, GOVERNMENT, AND HISTORY Col. Beukema, Professor 54 " SWi DEPARTMENT OF ORDNANCE AND GUNNERY r Ordnance and Gunnery is divided intu three main subcoirses, namely, Ordnance Engineering, Mechanical Trades and Automotive Engineering. The first covers the theory of explosives, fire control, and ballistics, and presents a knt) vledge of the mechanical prin- ciples involved in the design and manufacture of combat weapons and the principal characteristics of these weapons. The course in Mechanical Trades is designed to give cadets a knowledge of machining operations and the in- fluence of these machines on industrial preparedness. The subcourse in Automotive Engineering provides instruction on automotive vehicles, involving a basic knowledge of the design, manufacture, and maintenance of engines and vehicles. Cape.

N U HE Department of Military Hvgiene may at first glance seem relatively unimportant hut actual- ly its importance can scarcely be over- emphasized. For history is full of ex- amples where important campaigns have failed because of disease alone. In most wars the losses from sickness have greatly exceeded losses in battle. Such enormous losses were almost entirely due to ignorance on the part of officers and men. To safeguard our armies the Department of Military Hygiene is charged with preparing the officer for his highest duty, that of maintaining the health and morale of his men. It fulfills this obligation through thorough courses in 56 and delightful to get into, but how hard to get out ' hygiene, military sanitation, and first aid. Thus cadets, in their first class year at the Academy are furnished an indispensable part of their professional train- ing. For even today battles are on bv healthy, vigorous soldiers and by them alone. Un this day of hiehlx iiioJcrnizcJ warfare and streamlined inilitarv tactics it is particularly im- portant that each and every army officer have a working knowledge of the funda- mentals of Chemistry and Electricity. Oav b ' day these two sciences grow more important, changing the scope and methods of warfare almost overnight No armv of today is complete w ithout its corps of trained chemists and elec- tricians, without which it would he un- able to survive. It is to prepare oliicers to take their place in this highly technical arm - of ours that the Department of Chemistry and lUectri- citv gives such thorough courses in these two sciences. Thus with a sound scientihc knowledge our graduates go forth well prepared to cope with the conditions of modern warfare. DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY AND ELECTRICITY Col. Fenton, Proji Capt.

(iHa 58 HE " raison d ' etre " of the Department of English is to teach cadets, as future oHiccrs, to speak and write correct, clear, and forceful Eng- lish. The seeking out and appreciation of the best works of literature, though secondary, is none the less stressed. There is an increasing trend in the de- vmSSU UJ Jc Capt valllay, Capt. pariow. Capl.

DEPARTMENT OF MODERN LANGUAGES U HE courses of the De- parrmenr of Modern Languages consist of two years of French and one of Spanish. The Spanish text has been chosen and the French text written to lill the specific needs of the Academy.

U HE Drawing De- partment, teaching one of the most practical and useful courses at the Academy, was founded in 1808 when an additional in- structor was added to the De- partment of Engineering for the sfjecitic purpose of instructing in drawing. Since that time this very progressive depart- ment has so enlarged itself that the drawing course now covers a period of two years; dur- ing which time surveying and mechanical drawing are stressed. Since the appointment of Francis D. Mason to the Acade- my in 1808, such well-known artists as James McNeill Whist- ler and Charles A. Leslie have been affiliated with the Depart- ment. The present Professor, Col. Alexander, was assigned to duty with the department in 1920. Col. Alexander is one of the country ' s foremost author- ities on maps, a knowledge of which is essential to every officer. He has brought the de- partment up to highly tech- nical and up-to-date standards. climbcJ interminable, endless steps and came finally to this . Col. Alexander, Profeiior 61 T- TT " ' - Capt.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS U N the army of tomorrow the machine will continue to assume more and more importaiiLe, and a primary requisite for every officer will be a thorough educa- tion in mechanics, physics, and the like. It is to prepare the cadet for his courses in these subjects that the Mathematics Department teaches him the ins-and-outs of calculus. In his first tw-o years it gives him that broad and firm foundation on which most of his later work as a cadet is based.

The Commandant DEPARTMENT OF TACTICS ODAY as the responsibilities and duties of the young officer increase in this ever expanding Army so do the responsibilities of the Tactical Department increase. Charged with the discipline, administration, and tactical training of the Corps the Department is faced with a seemingly impossible task. The Commandant with the assistance of the Battalion Board and company tactical officers must coordinate all phases of military traini " g and supervise the daily routine. Complete tactical training is becoming increasingly difficult because of the complexities of modern warfare and because of the limited time and facilities open to the Department. In spite of all this the military education of the cadet includes every branch and every phase of warfare. Most important of all are the traits cf leadership and re- sponsibility to duty, but no amount of instruction can in- still these necessary qualities. It is by the example of the officers themselves that the cadets receive their most valu- able trainins. 64 ATHLETIC DIVISION OF TACTICS Maj. Harmonv, M„si,r oj th, Su Mi H.L- ' .l Mr. Malonc , Capt.

QUARTERMASTER DETACHMENT As the commanding ollicer is concerned chielly vvitli the perstmnel of the post, so the Quartermaster is concerned with the post itself —tlie roads, buildings, fixtures, the upkeep, enlargement, and beautilication. To Col. Kimball and his stalf falls the task of spending the three million or so that is West Point ' s budget, and proof of his efhciency in both procurement and wise expenditure of funds IS the beautv and neatness of West Point and its continuous expansion in territory and buildings.

Never the great scholar nor a file-boner, he cracked many a problem for " those poor goats " and became a two-digit sergeant first-class year. His all-round athletic ability found its main outlet in wrestling and he became captain of the team. The ease with which he has made friends and his intense desire to understand the ins and outs of armv life insure his success as an officer. " Geurgie " Congressional H BEN MARSHALL WEST GuLFPORT, Mississippi Straight from the freedom of college life, Ben walked into Beast Barracks with his usual nonchalance. The bedlam that followed when he met the Detail served to subdue him for a short while, but Ben soon relaxed again and spent the rest of his cadet career as a rugged individualist. As such he naturally ran into a few snags, but what are demerits and tenths to a man boning Air Corps and whose dimpled smile and smooth Southern talk bring him more pro drags than he has time to handle.

Three years of college sent Whit among us as a senior in years with consequent sobriety, clear perceptions, and the set theory that diligent application inevitably pays dividends.

Wrav has con- tinually enhanced that reputation. His ambitions have been three: to rank the Coast Artillery, to stay away from the " area, " and to lead his own lite. The incom- patihilitv of the two latter ambitions has been a constant source of trouble for him. A minimum of tactical ellort, a modicum of academic endeavor, and a maximum of good nature have carried him through four years with many laughs for both himself and his classmates. His creed — " laugh and let laugh. " " A. Wray ' ' Coiigresswiial A LESTER STRODE WHITE Mexico, Missouri This lustv lad weighed fifteen pounds at birth; at present he tops 200. Maybe that accounts for his singing before breakfast and general good humor under adverse condi- tions. Even the turnouts didn ' t move him. He could have avoided them bv using his continuous late lights for studv rather than the fabrication of sweet nothings for feminine consumption.

United States Militarv Acade- mv. West Point, X. Y., not later than noon Julv 1, 1937. ' " That night found us " New Cadets, " apprentices in the profession of arms and the service of the nation. More than that, it found us already cognizant of the fact that we were members of a class, that the word " class " and " class- mate " at West Point had a new meaning, a clearer and closer significance than thev had possessed in previous schooling. And 335 j : . :. Wi on that first Jav wc haJ learned another clear lesson. We srrippeJ olF our coats and ties, rolled up trousers, dropped and re- trieved our suitcases manv times, moved our chins and shoulders hack, and m the confusion of doing so we learned the funda- mental lesson m the schooling of the soJdier, prompt and unquestioning obedi- ence. From confusion we learned as well the meaning of rapid action. We began to run: we ran to the first sergeant, we ran to one r(K)m and then to another, we ran to an alleged barber shop to be trimmed, we ran to the cadet store times unnumbered. West Point seemed to have been visited with the true spirit of the prophet (Daniel, " Many shall run to ,ind (i-o. .md knowl- edge shall be incre.ised 337 Ci ' - ' Aw i . . .- ' .■ • 1.. ' ■ . ' ri For four weeks we ran and we learned. Drill, calisrlienics, weapons, marksman- ship, i uard instruction, and athletics were our dailv lot. We learned how to conduct ourselves in the mess hall and how- to hack a roast. We memon ed our Plehe Bibles or wished that we had We learned a new language. West Point slang. At last came Presentation Parade, and we were " Mister " instead of " New Cadet. " Beast Barracks over, we felt as veteran as Caesar ' s tricirii. But it was t)nl - the be- ginning. The end of July introduced us to summer camp, yearling bucks, and the more re- fined forms of " correction. " We began to put into practice the theorv we had learned in Beast Barracks; we rolled packs and pitched tents, fired the Springfield and 339 ri asccnc ' cd the hills on scouting and patrol- ling expeditions. We honed the ' Hiingry Squad, " and always got the first relief. Ve learncd that tents require more sweeping and dusting than rooms, and that daily parades can be a ghastly ordeal. We re- laxed at swimming, and we mastered the fundamentals of those stalwart traditions of the Academy, the ■ ' Grapevme " and the ■ ' Twinkle. " The hottest day of the sum- mer brought a practice march to Round Pond and taught us that one canteen of water is worth its weight in gold. With the end of camp came the Plcbe hike, dis- tinguished as the last Plebe hike in the present history of the Academy. We madc the longest day ' s march on record, and we were the last class to carry full packs. 341 ..J ri With September canie our introduction to the ac.Kleniic system at West Point, vastly different from hii h school or col- lege. Algebra and solid geometry, French and English did not seem too formidable a curriculum, vet each Saturday showed manv of us deficient. Academic travail had Its compensation, however; football games and trips were welcome diversions, W ' c nearly bear Notre Dame, and we thorough- y sank the X.ivw December brought the Cieiieral W ritten Reviews and the long awaited Plebe Christmas. With the upper classes gone, the Academy was ours, and we made the most of it.

June Week took us hack to sunnncr camp, endless parades, ceaseless shining, inter- nnn.ihle hracing lUit all tra ail must ha e an end, and (iraduation Parade hrought the sweetest end of all. Recognition ' 345 Yearlings at last! And summer to enjoy it ! ' Delatield and Flirtation beckoned; golf and tennis were to be played, the Boodlers and Cullum to be frequented. But all was not plav; the mornings we spent soldiering, studying and hring practically all the infantry weapons — and all became less of a mystery. In the heat of the riding hall we met the horse; at Michie we laid communication nets: " Surprise calling Sunbeam . . . . " 346 The lirsr class went ro Georgia aiul.w hen tor the lirst time vc saw our classmates take com- mand, we reali ed sikKlenlv how nuicii one vcar had taught.

The rest ot summer camp swirled hv, it was the best summer we had ever spent any- where, anvnme . . . ■ 49 Came Scprcinbcr, and the academ ic maze. French anJ English were familiar, historv anJ drawing were tedious; while physics and calculus proved as ever to he the bugaboos in the lives of some of us. We read thousands of pages, and started laying plans for eyeglasses; wc climbed millions ot steps and longed for The Day! Football games passed, and we looked toward our first Christmas leave . . . 351 Christmas fleeted by; straining at the leash, we started on the last lap toward furlough. The Barn Dance- and all the winter sports helped break the stretch of Demon Gloom; Stevens Cx)llci;e provided a monieiuarv diversion. As days lengthened and the creeping time shortened, we bought clothes, studied less, bayed at the moon. At last came school ' s end, June Week, Gradu.irion in the I leld House, and. Imallv, " Furloui h class. Dismissed ' " 353 B Furlough, the golden dream of two long in- terminable years, was all that we had anticipated. In many ways we spent the treasure of seventy- seven kaleidoscopic days of freedom. Some went abroad; others elected to go down to the sea in the ships of the Navy, and joined the midship- man ' s cruise. But most of us chose to see America hrst; hitch-hiking with the Air Corps was the favorite method. Our money spent, we went home, to ex- O.A.O. ' s married, ex-companions now responsible breadwinners. The world had not stood still during our absence. 354 Cv t : 5 ! ■-•v 0! . r.

SVN ii B.3 UcVjoV Inexorably the end drew near; two days before the end found us at the Astor for the Furlough hop. August twenty-eighth the Cows came home, long-haired, short-tempered; many snared and all deluded. We groaned, compared notes, looked at the two stripes on our coats, and realized that the last half was coming up. We plunged again into the academic swim-in a maze of F = MA, laws of multiple proportions, and Spanish irregular verbs, furlough soon became just a lovely memory. In a disappointing football season we learned that de- feat is not gauged by the scoreboard, that a 356 hghting team or a fighting army is never licked so long as it keeps trying. World War II had its repercussions in the insulated confines of " Usmay College. " There began those rumors of an early graduation for the First Class that were to persist throughout our first class year as well. Christmas Leave behind us, we settled into the enervating routine of second class winter. The superiority of Juice over Chem was not sufficient to render the Gloom Period anything but in- tensely gloomy. As the days lengthened and the number of days diminished, our travails were in- 358 v 8tt«» : creased by the rising spirits of the Yearlings and the First Chiss. " Yeah Furlo " became the cry again; with determined nonchalance we mut- tered " Snare and delusion, " and endured the jibes concerning the number of days until the " Camp Clinton Trip. " March gave us an unprecedented Long Week-End; Spring was not far behind. April and May came and went with a rush of writs, and on the fourth of June we happily packed our slipsticks, sold our Hudson ' s Manuals, and marched to Summer Camp. 360 June Wcclv ' s end brought our second Recognition; at last wc were First Classmen, demigods of the Academy. A busy summer beckoned; there were trips to be made, week-ends to be taken, and, most important of all, we had the task of accustoming ourselves to the responsibilities that accompany the 36 privileges of rank. With three stripes and chevrons came the ,ob ot managing the Corps. The first highlight of the summer was the Air Corps trip; one-third of the class at a time, we took off from Stewart Field in Douglas transports for the iniafia? ' " ? lirst Ic s, ' of rho- joiirncv. At Langlcy vc saw rhc G.H.O. Air Force in action at bombing and gunncrv practice, wc took over rlu eoiirrols of a Flying Fortress, and we enioved true southern hospitalitv at W ' lllianisburg and Virginia Beach. The next leg took us to Dayton and Wright Field, home of the Ma- 36 ' 366 tend Division, where wc cn,oyed a glimpse of the experimental and research laboratories. Home again two days later, many of tis were convinced that wings were what we wanted ! The Field Artillery took us into the frigid wilds of Pennsylvania ' s Pocono Ft X ± ' - ' " ■ " •■ ■ ' ' 1 ' Mountains. Long hours with the linng battery and at the observation post initiated us into the artillery nian ' s art. and the nights introduced to Shim- bo ' s Tavern and the Tob hanna Shullle. " Back at the Academv m July, we spent i)ur week of field soldiering with the 367 Cavalry. Daily and nocturnal marches and skirmishes gave us a rolling gait and tough derriers; playing handmaiden to a horse taught us why troopers acquire vitriolic vocabularies. July also gave us our hrst experience with that aggregation of the intelligentsia, the Corps of Engineers. Stringing barbed 368 jiv trooper wire, coring beams and girders, and laying ponton bridges led us ro rhe opinion char the prime requisite of an engineer is a strong back rather than cxtraordinarv acumen. Our last trip ot the summer tooL us to Fort HanceKk to lire sea-coast and 369 ,nn-a,rcraft ordnance of the Coast Art.llery. Through daylight and n.ght wc hred at towed water targets, sleeve aircraft targets, and churned the waters of Sandy Hook with mine explosions. For recreation we swam and fished visited Asbury Park, and en,oyed picnics at the officer ' s beach club. 370 T ' m.

Coach Morris Touchstone deserves a great deal of credit for the interest which has grown up around the game of Lacrosse at West Point. Hard-working, and energetic; he has placed the .Vrniy Lacrosse Team in the ranks t)l the best teams in the country. At Baltimore City College and later as athletic di- rector at Maryland State Normal School he played a great deal on informal teams. It was on Johns Hopkins University field that he met Bill Shmeiscr, the greatest of all Lacrosse coaches, and in the friendship which followed the pair worked together on plays, technique, and training methods. In 1923 Coach Touchstone went to Yale as coach of Soccer and Lacrosse. He left there in 1928 to become coach of Lacrosse at West Point. The 1940 season began with a fair showing of experienced men on the team. In Fairlamb the coach was assured of having one of the best goalies in the country defending the Army net. N ' ery few men could boast that they had gotten around Frontczak and Swift, and with an excellent supporting group composed of Wcidner, Galloway, McCartan, and Frawley the defense was well rounded. Captain Eaton at center lived up to expectations and was the spark plug of the team. On the attack was the deceptive Gillem cooperating with Muller and Hines, assisted by a perfectly geared pair — Thigpen and Mitchell- and supported by such capable men as Tate, Wynne, and England, G.W. Starting late because of unfavorable weather and unable to work together as a team due to an unusual amount of sickness, the team seemed slow in RouNv, A1. wjfr i Jfj two Jefettfe mtn to otie. 403 starting and failed to show the results that had been expected in the pre- season games. By April 6th, however, a great many of the dilhcnlties had been ironed out and the team coasted to a 15 to 1 victory over Dartmouth. " Tom Galloway, a Yearling, was outstanding for the Army with four goals. " This sentence, quoted from the New York Times, is significant because It can be repeated for most of the other games throughout the season. The game with Maryland proved to be another story, however. Having lost only three men from its Conference Championship team of 1939 and with these gaps plugged up by capable men from the freshman team, Maryland ' s superior stick-handling and intelligent playing prove no match for the Army. The score: Maryland 6 — Army 2. But again Army bounced back and against a scrappy Harvard team, which the week before had held Navy to a 1-1 tie in the first half, scored a 9 to 2 victory. This gaire, coming only three davs after the Maryland contest, was plaved by a tired Army squad, but it as evident that they were not discouraged and that the spirit yvas still there. At Baltimore, before a wildly cheering crowd of 7000, Johns Hopkins was hnally able to break its Lacrosse famine with an 11 to 4 victory over Army. This game, their first win over Army in five years, was one of the roughest games of several seasons with " both swinging their sticks with more power than finesse. " A decisive win over Colgate by a score of 19 to 2 preceded an excellent game with Penn State. It was at this Penn State game that several shifts in position and some new combinations first showed up. A 9 to 5 w ' in over a hard-fighting team proved the vvisdom of the coach ' s changes. This re- organized Army team went on to defeat Rutgers by a 10 to 3 score before it was Itself set back by an excellent Princeton team. Plaved on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon amidst gorgeous surroundings, this game exhibited some of the finest Lacrosse of the season, Princeton finally overpowering Army to win 9 to 6. Nair ' i ball with Tali objtctiiif ijirr ti,i ball with Jifficyltiii. After an easy 14 to 9 victory over Cornell, Army settled down to two weeks ot hard prcjMration tor the Navy game. Remembering that they had bowed to Navy by a single tally in 1939, it was an inspired team that took the field against Navy on June 1st. The Army started hard and fast and, before the 405 i RelNirt c osn tit on tht Hiivy gottlte. Navv could even begin to settle down, was coasting along hchmd a large lead, Armv wmnmg 13 to 2. Fernll, Tate, Sands, Grygiel, and Frawley all played and did a man-sized )oh in keeping up the scoring. Thus, a very satis- fying Navy Game added its share towards making a very successful season; seven victories against three defeats. As for next year ' s prospects— they are excellent. How can a team lose with a Galloway, a Reinert, a Tate, or a Grygiel in its midst All of these will be there together with such dark horses as Charbonneau and King up from B squad and Minkler, Cobb, and Criss coming in from one of the best C squads of history. The schedule will be a characteristically tough one but the team will be extraordinarily hard to beat.

IW J » »; i»l i - l ' J Tarbox, M.iii.ie,ci At the outset i)f the 1940 seast)n the Armv team appeared to he cham- pionship material. Only a tew old favorites had been lost by graduation, and those had been replaced by promising players of the previous season ' s plcbe team. Ho ve er, despite a brilliant start, Army ' s team did nt)t tu lill on the diamond what it had promised on paper. Lack of batting power handicapped us on the scoring end, while lack of pitching ability was a detriment when the outfit was in the field. In an efTort to find a winning combination. Coach " Wally ' French shifted the lineup again and again but always without the desired results. The big .Army nine opened with the annual practice game with the New York Giants, a team whose rookies have each year handed the Gray a pre-season trouncing -and this time was no exception. On .April fifth the first regularly scheduled game was played, with the rabble defeating Harvard 5 to 4. Armv began the scoring when Garland and Kasper hit R -.V .-rrr. ' -r ' .J .

Harvard went ahead m the 3th, but Army ralhed in the 7th, bolstered bv the bnlhant hurling ot Eric de Jonckheere, who received credit for the final win. The following game Army duplicated its initial victory by taking one from Princeton 5 to 4. Tarver entered the game as a relief pucher m the 6th and allowed only one hit from then on, thus nchly deserving the win chalked up to his credit. Matching his per- Ail itnc 1 m, it- ! formance was Garland, who had an almost jierfect day at the plate by banging out three out of four hits. Broun came to our Hudson shores only to experience a defeat by Army ' s sluggers 8-3, dejonckheere again holding the batters at bav. His smash to deep left in the 6th sent Ahern home with the winning run. At the hands of Lafayette University, Army suffered its first defeat. In the next game Penn State soundly trounced the Black, Gold, and Grey to the tune of 9-3. Duke ' s team was also much too powerful for the rabble, which finished on the short end of the 10-0 tally. Only one Armv man got as far as third, but the highlight of the game was ours— a sparkling triple play by Gilbert and Esau. After the Georgetown game was cancelled due to rain, the Army team, led by Eric dejonckheere, went to New Haven to defeat Yale 4-1, with Charley Berra and " Judy " Garland sharing batting honors. The next week, however, our bad luck returned, and N. Y. U. beat us to the tunc of 10-9. Army ' s sad streak continued when, before a howling crowd of three thousand, Fordham fashioned 18 hits to defeat us 15-7. I Army ' s sole satisfaction in that fracas was knocking Fordham ' s starting j pitcher from the box. By a score of 7-4 over Wesleyan, Army once again ] broke into the win cokimn. It was the first victory in some time and brought forth a tremendous amount of support from the Corps. Following the raining-out of the Pittsburgh game came the saddest day ot the season: ' June 1, when Navv handed us a defeat, 4-2. Playing smooth and fast, tlic Middies took a game that the Cadets had long hoped to see a glorious victory. For next season the tlashmg nucleus of de Jonckheere, Polk, Gilbert, Ahern, Corbin, and Garland, will be supplemented by several recruits from the plebes, among whom Whitlow, Stable, and Mazur will be valuable, additions to the Army nine, a new Army nine which promises to carry on in the fine tradition of all the teams Coach French has produced.

Since then us calibre has gained by leaps and bounds, com- manding the respect and best eliorts of all its opponents. Year after year under the guidance of great coaches like our present Leo Nov ak, the Army track squad has rolled up a lustrous and enviable record to which the ' 40 team has added no meager bit. Five victories one defeat -are inter- mingled witii record shattering marks which hold promise of long stand- ing. Prior to the regular intercollegiate season several members of the squad gained greatly valuable cx[ierience at the I. C. i ; A. Championship meet in New York City. Only one, Ralph Ross of pole vault fame, returned home with success in his eyes, but each man gained the experience of competing with experts, thereby learning how to perfect his own form and timing — those vital factors in any athletic contest. With the crack of the lirst pistol in the scheduled meets the Army team shook ofTits winter ' s cloak of inactivitv and proceeded to beat a succession of highl V rated teams, one after the other. The decisive victory over Brown University v96 ' ' 4-29 ' 4)vvas augmented by the eminently successful partici- pation of Ross and Guckeyson in the Pcnn Relays on the same dav. Ross again displayed his ability to soar high into the heavens with the aid of a mere pole while Guckeyson carried away the honors in the javelin throw with but one try. . fter trouncing Columbia (95-39) on home ground, the squad then ran into its first upsetting competition in the long distance runners from Maryland University. The Army team, however, more than made up for its lack of a Pheidippides by winning in the sprints and held events, and thus adding Maryland to its string of victims to the tune of 78-48. The elforts of Bill Gillis trained . BMSTRO.Nt,. MjiIJ Sip Jttj Tuck III thi hifj hurjlts de Latour ' uay our in Front him first place in both the 120 high and 220 low hurdles to set a new track record in the latter. In rapid succession followed the Army vic- tories over Minnesota and Fordham with Bliss Moore runnini; his best mile (4:21.5) in the Minnesota meet to ofisct the earlier triumphs of Maryland. Thus the field was swept clear with but one foe left to face Down on the Scscrn the two closelv matched teams, Armv and Navv, struggled determinedly to eke out a victory in the last and most im- portant contest of the season. Perhaps the fate of Army was sealed (at least It was indicated) when Frank DeLatour ' s brother of Navy had to set a new Naval Academy record in the 880 yard run in order to beat Frank. A close match throughout (59-67), the defeat left no sting but served as a splendid climax to a great season. Track is like an interesting story. We no sooner finish one chapter than we arc eager to be on with the next. True is this of the Armv squad. m With excellent material fortheDinint; in the shape i)f Benv, Dannacker, Fenili, and Kini; and with the alrcad ' proven prowess ot captain-elect Hutson, Moore, Mullins, Gillis, Grav, White, Schoheld, DefTke, and man ' others — the next chapter promises to be as interesting and as suc- cessful as the last. Looking far ahead to the 1941 Track Season, Coach Leo Novak and the team will be well prepared to give any and all of Army ' s oppon- ents more than an ordinarily hard afternoon of work. Next year ' s team will be more than usually well-balanced, strong in all depart- ments and capably backed bv reserves. We are anticipating a season in the usual tenor of Army Track — the sequence of victories culmin- ating in an o erdue and smashing ictory over Navy. ■| Ql Hiitsoi! tahs the 100 jram Bri Shearing the Ra t ' -a " •TF " HI It TATE, F.

Sing the praises of each and every member of :he team, all of whom played their hearts out, not before a throng of enthusiastic spectators, but for the game itself. Joe Knowlton, for instance, though held out all season by a trick knee kept trying until he played a brilliant Navy game. Hill Guckeyson, captain-elect, out for his first try at the sport, came away covered with glory and with an All-American position. Hayduk, also playing his first season as a regular, threw his all into the game and became a goalie of real polish. Spirit such as this makes us doff our hats to a great Army soccer team, one of the greatest, we believe, in West Point history. We hold the high hope that Guckeyson can, next season, lead another team through such a season. 2 % 11 Moore, Capn Root, Cojch Novak, Fritz, MacMullen, Rosell, Pratt, Dannacher, Wood, Brier, Bishop, Moore, Pitts, Niles, Truex, Goddard, King, Captain Ci..

The speedv forward line, composed of Boots Gilbert, Honv Tate, and Spike Woodruil, the defense of Joe Grygiel, and Steve oe Tate at the goal, was all that any coach could de- mand. Brilliant reserves like Salisbury and Peterman gave added fighting power. 426 Against this CDmhinarion Lehigh scored once while Armv tallied six times. Cornell resisted stubbornly, hut Armv counted eight times against four for the visitors. Here fate and stiff competition halted the victory march. Hampered by injuries, the Army sextet was drubbed 6-2 by Boston College, and again 6-2 by Princeton. The West Pointers scored but once against Union ' s goalie, while Union managed to pass Joe Tate twice. Williams clicked, 3-1, as the Army slump ended.

A Croonquist Sickness, injuries, and the Academics all took parts of the squad t)ut of competition until that happy day when the over-contidcnt hand of Middies sailed in from Annapolis. This time Army was ready, and in the end. Army stood on top by the score of 45-30. The medley rcla team of Gauvreau, Croonquist, and Garrett established a new Academ - record of 3:05 for their event; Criss easily won the 220-yard swim and Scoheld cleaned up in both 50 and 100 yards. Croonquist took a beauti- ful lirst in the breast stroke and W ' riston and Briiner supplied the de- ciding points of the meet. Just to clinch matters a strong sprint team ot Garrett, Peabody, Criss, and Scoficld easily won the final relay. To prove that it wasn ' t a tlash in the pan Garrett and Scoficld took .i first and third in the 50 yards at the intercollegiates. It was in all .i season of which any succeeding Army team can well be proud. As for next year, prospects look exceedingly bright.

From the most ancient of times the soldier has been expected to handle a sword with distinction. Consequently it is with just admira- tion that we point to our fine blade men: Moody, Campbell, and Taylor. These and others have carried the Black, Gold and Grav against the nation ' s best and come through with their heads still above water. Much credit mu.st he given Mr. Dimond for producing a cliam- pionship team year after year. 434 Our season srarred with a close 4-5 defeat at the hands of Cornell, hut this early setback was redeemed hv a string of victories over Ivy leaguers: ' laic, Harvard, and Princeton, The season closed with vic- tories over Columbia and St. John ' s followed closely bv the inter- collegiates. No championships were taken here but Moodv placed himself in the linals as did Ta l( r and both fenced like the masters that thev are. Outstanding prospects for next season have not as vet showed their heads, however we leave with fidl conlideiice that Mr. Diniond will deliver as he always has. Taylor will undoubtedly develop into a first- class swiirdsman and several plcbes show prt)mise.

The intercollegiate: found the team commuting between West Point and Boston via air plane. Harvard was drubbed handily in che first round as Ted deSaussure hit ten goals. Princeton proved too tough in the next round and the cadets were eliminated. The indoor season was eminently successful; only one game was lost and that to Princeton. P.M.C. with its hard hitting Del Carrol was met and defeated in a blaze of deSaussure- Brown glory. Cornell proved easy meat for the seasoned cadets and the advent of the intercollegiates found them the slight favorites over defender Princeton. As the tournament started the trio took P .VIC. again with Andrus doing some beautiful hitting. The finals brought Princeton who squeezed out a victory and retained the cup. In this tournament as throughout the season, Brown led the team with great distinction and his calm manner served to redeem manv situations. i4 ' t.irr irt nuf. j Jiriir Lorniii QOLP II Re.tr 5mili;y, Hanlky, Hariiin, Mayo, Linderman, G Front: Stanford, Hoebeke, Cojch Canausa.

The winter of 1940 saw the prospective members of Army ' s golf team looking forward with conlidcnce to a highly successful season, but Lady Luck said, " No. " After losing to Penn State, the squad also dropped a close one to a strong Duke team. In the third match, with Fordham, Army finally found itself and won with the loss of only one point. Next came Swarthniorc, and in this victory tor the Gray all members of the team played excellent golf, with every man shooting in the seventies. After dropping a hard one to Dartmouth the team closed its season against Navy ' s formidable golfers, and the defeat of this year ' s team by Navy makes it two in a row for the middies, a string of victories which the 1941 Army rabble is determined to break. Hardin, captain, and .Mayo, captain-elect, were the two outstanding performers of the season, though closely pressed by two capable year- lings, Hanley and Smiley.

Chambers that, at the finish, the season could be called most successful. The first match was a victory for Army over Brown University, but losses to the University of Miami and to Princeton University followed within a week.

At this point, however, the play of most of Army ' s courtmen began to improve. Dick Tindall began to show even better form than he had displayed in trouncing such stars as Gillespie of Miami and Lauck of Princeton. Sam Webster began to clinch the close ones as he had in his flashy former years. Andy Evans and Charles Murrah began to settle Jow n to the star roles they played during the remainder of the season. Most important, however, were the return of Harry Heffner to the brilliant form that gained him national junior ranking, and the surpris- ing rise of F.H.S. Tate. This remarkable renaissance in form and morale was reflected in seven straight victories over teams including such powerhouses as Penn State, Dartmouth, Cornell, and Navy. The Penn State match was a clean sweep for Army in the singles, but a clean sweep for State in the doubles. Dick Tindall led the way against Dartmouth with a decisive victory over Avery, the Green ' s outstanding collegiate champion of New England. High point in the Cornell match was Evan ' s marathon victory over Boochcverin the singles. As definite favorites the Navy 445 ' ?- I team came to West Point, led by Joe Hunt, the nation ' s fourth ranking player, and coached by Arthur Hendnx. The No. 1 singles match was a close victory for Hunt over Tindall. In the No. 2 singles, Webster, the Army captain, was pitted against Marks, the Navy captain. After a long match in which there were several exciting match points, Marks was the victor. The surprise development ot the meet was the upset of Midshipman Esch in love sets by Cadet Evans. And Evans was not through furnishing surprises for the day, as he and Tindall went on to conquer the formidable Navy No. 1 doubles combination of Hunt and Williams. Lost to the Armv team for the next season are Webster and Heliner. Fortune has given the squad John Hatch to compensate in part for the loss of Heffner, and candidates to hll Webster ' s place are Hoyt, Canella, Tucker, and Bonham, all capable players from the class of ' 43- These men, with ' 41 ' s able racquet wielders still m the swing, promise to make Armv ' s next season a sweepinc; success. : 5 446 ILADILPHIA NOV. 31, 1940 AHMY m Thiuc p,r,in:i.il imfljcMt nvjls meet ,:gjw before 102,000 fans. The largest and most colorful crowd of America ' s football season assembled in the Philadelphia Municipal Stadium on the crisp, bright afternoon of November 31st to witness the hftieth anniversary en- counter of the service schools. Entering the fray as heavy favorites, Navv took the opening kick-off and cruised forty-two yards to score — Busik smashing over from the two yard line despite the goal line stand of Armv ' s stalwart line. F«,jr ,a S, :,.,, m ITAVY 14 tfit-W {- I (jllhs Tosjes jor Arwy Failing ro cover rhc ciisuing kick-o(T, the gold-hcinicrcd Rabble rose to great fighting heights to repel one Navy advance on the one yard line and another on the eight yard line. Then suddenly breaking away from defensive tactics, Army unleashed a thrilling aerial offensive, with Hatch and Mazur piloting the parade to the Navy one yard line. However the powerful defense of the Blue forces hurled back this threat, as well as the succeeding one on the five yard line. After the half. Navy hammered away with its superior power and finally at the end of the third period countered with a lightning pass play, Clark to Malcolm. Leonard converted his second extra point and the game was Navy ' s 14-0. During the entire contest, the Kaydets flashed only one offensive outburst, but their stubborn fighting spirit, coupled with Mazur ' s spectacular kicking exhibition, reversed the Goat time and time again. Particularly noticeable in the Armv fight were the defensive efTorts of Weidner, Harris, Gillis, Murphy, and ITvans, while Hatch and M.izur doniinateJ the backficid plav. 449 BASEBALL i The Navy Baseball Squad This year Navy, behind the hurling of Smirh, brilliant youngster pitcher, fulfilled predictions by defeating the Army nine 4-2 before 7500 spectators at Annapolis. Army drew first blood as the result of Chuck Esau ' s single in the first inning. He was driven in by Polk on a beautiful drive into the left field stands, which, because of a ground rule, netted the latter only two bases. The other Army run was scored by Corbin, who batted for Seip in the ninth. High scorer for Navy was Harwood, with two runs to his credit.

Right then and there every man on the squad made to himself a vow that such a disaster should not he re- peated. How well that vow was carried out is shown in the 13-2 record victory which we scored in 1940. Prc-game dope gave Navy the slight edge, hut from the first whistle they were literally fought ofT their feet by every man on our squad. This game will always rank among the most glorious victories of a great West Point Spirit. BALL ' 1 ' I ' 1 ' Murphy coma dawn with the ball Typical of Armv basketball this luckless season was the Navy game, played at Annapolis. Army held the lead throughout most of the first half with Reinbold and White starring, and assumed it again at the beginning of the second period. This lead was short-lived, however, with Navy surging back to win 48-36- Early graduation at the Nava Academy had caused the Midshipmen to lose their captain and two of their regulars, but these gaps were handilv filled bv some new dis- coveries in the Youngster class which more than made up for the losses.

The highlight of the meet came in the 880 when Lloyd dcLatour of Navy beat his brother Frank, the . rm captain, and set a new Naval Academy record. Outstanding in the field events was Ed Hannfeldt of Navy who took first place in the lavelin, shot-put, and discus. This was the fourteenth meet in the Army-Navy series, the score now standing five victories for Navy to nine for Army. f 453 Jc ' 4 A . lINOH SPOETS E. Reedy, Ccifit. Ni r) Soccer Only recently has the ancient Army-Navy rivalry been carried into the field of Minor Sports. It is most appropriate, we believe, hat the two service schools should meet in ull athletics and thus arry on and ever increase the spirit which has gro Yn up between E. R. Blair, Cjpt. Navv Ttmiu 454 1 i them since that first football game over forty years ago. In all sports the competition has been characteristically keen, and it is not surprising that %%x find the victories in all Minor Sports about evenly divided. Of all the exciting moments in the Navy games of the past year perhaps the most thrilling came on the day last June when Dick Tindall took the tennis court against Navy ' s Davis Cup man, Joe Hunt. Tindall played brilliantly but could not match the Hunt experience. Later in the after- noon, however, Tindall and Evans redeemed by sweeping over Hunt and his partner in the doubles. Only slightly less outstanding was the day of the Navy swim meet. Scofield, Criss and Garrett saw many records smashed. It was one of those rare occasions in sport, when every man hits his peak at the same time and victory is inevitable. The Navy soccer engagement saw two evenly matched teams fight it out to the bitter end. Guckeyson, Dessert, and Stillson did yeoman service to send the Midshipmen back to Crab- town defeated. No . rmv rooter will soon forget that game. 455 Ik i in i : But it was not all Army victory in this old rivalry. The Sailors ' fencing team crossed our swords and came awav with a substantial margin. Likewise our over-confident Cross- country squad went down to a heart breaking defeat at Sailor hands. It IS to be hoped that the future years will bring competition as keen and sportsmanship as good as in the past season ' s history of the Army aeainst the Navv.

Tansey, Jones, C. E. There is none so honorable as a man of honor, none so despicable as a man of deceit. Lving, cheating, quibbling and all other unsavorv traits form the basis against which anv honor code works. The " Honor System " at West Point is unique in that it rests on each individual cadet for its maintainance. Rules and regulations, the controlling forces of armv conduct, are cast aside when it comes to a matter of honor. And that is the underlying secret of the success and high mettle of the West Point honor code. It knows no cast- iron rules, for true honor must exist in the minds of the men it serves. The thirteen First Classmen, making up the Honor Committee, are invested with the power of interpret- ing questionable points which arise. Theirs is the solemn dutv of administering justice to all offenders, for whom there is no sympathy, no mercv, no second chance. Thev are the perpetuators of the ideals upon which the Academy was founded. 460 IRST CLASS OFFICERS ECOND CLASS UJ OFFICERS A I |HIRD CLASS U OFFICERS (JILIHKI, LaNLI.

[JECTURE COMMITTEE The Cadet Lecture Committee inaugurated Its first season nine years ago with a schedule of thirteen lecturers. Since that time it has grown rapidly in its importance to the Corps, expanding its program to where it now brings the cream of the entertainment as well as that of the lecture lield to West Point.

This society, besides producing our Hundredth Night Show, stages short plays throughout the year which help the cadets relax from the mental strain of academics and the Gloom Period. This season it brought together to the Corps such Broadway luminaries as Carol Bruce, Rudy X ' allee, Rubinoff, Winnc Shaw, and Bert Wheeler in an extravaganza eminently worthy of Billv Rose.

All through the years Cadets have been partial to barber shop harmony, and even today our sometimes uncertain renditions can be heard across the Plain in impromptu after-supper concerts. Six years ago these desultory efforts were co- ordinated in the Glee Club, which presents programs of classical, spiritual, and popular numbers throughout the year and takes an important part in the Hundredth Night Show. It not only affords an outlet for overzealous bath- tub baritones but also brings melody, harmony, and pleasure into the lives of all Cadets. Much credit is due to this year ' s director, Sv Coker. 466 . M r- i tc JM, .=i£j Pffi MB«r. Thty took care of the Post chtrubs even Sundae momtn .

Although thismay seem unusual it is a source of constant satisfaction to the Chaplain as a herald of the advance of religious intlucncc in the Corps. Be that as it may, the thirty-scvcn cadets in this group take their work seriously, and feel that the experience thev derive from their work is far more valu- able than the tune they put into it.

HESS CLUB Perhaps because the grand tactics of chess are akin to militarv strategy, our Chess Club has won for itself a bril- liant reputation among colleges in the East. Boasting of a large membership in the Corps, the Chess Club has proved that this game, which is nearlv as ancient as the .irt of war, is not solelv an old man ' s pastime but is also a sport indulged in by serious-thmking, dynamic youth.

War-time aircraft threats have lent an impetus to this peace-time sport — one which can be readily adapted to airplane sniping. Formerly a First Class privilege, the Club has developed under the direction of Captain King into a Capt. King, U , Thompson, Walters, Yatbs, Mr. Canmeld recognized C orps organization, placing priority on skill rather than on rank. With a steadily mounting record, placing third in the intcrcollegiatcs last year, it is now- becoming one of the busiest and most popular of our many organizations. 469 I ijADET CHAPEL CHOIR The Choir — over 260 cadets made up the best one that we hi. Although Still comparatively young, Mr. Frederick- Christian Mayer has become almost a tradition at West Point — a tradition whose growth has been interwoven with the growth of the famous Cadet Chapel Choir and the growth of the even more famous chapel organ the largest church organ in the Western Hemisphere and the Chjfljin H. Fairfield Butt, Jr. second largest church organ in the world. The Mr. Mayer, Ori amst size and performance of both are the results of many years of careful building bv Mr. Mayer. With him lies the credit for obtaining many of the memorial stops in the now nearly complete organ of thirteen-thousand rive-hundred pipes; also with him lies the credit for the lasting reverence and beauty that the performance of the choir of one-hundred and riftv voices adds to the services in our great Gothic chapel. Forever grateful will be the multitudes of music lovers on the post and in the sur- rounding cities for the rare opportunity of en|oying the lovelv and intimate beauty of Mr. Mayer ' s organ recitals. We can wish the Corps no better than to hope sincerely that when we return as " old grads " we will hnd Mr. Mayer at his old place at the console of the organ and in the hearts of the Corps. Chaplain Butt we consider as belonging to our class since he assumed his post the day we entered as Plebes and leaves shortly after we do, remaining a few davs after graduation to marry a number of our class in the Chapel. His youth, earnestness, and smiling good humor particularly qualified him for his work; we shall remember him always as the center of our religious life while at the Academy. 470 ' m TIk jcahrn, Firif (: ., „„,„ uh: .lun: rh l ' r„,r .. .M.y [pATHOLIC CHAPEL CHOIR h AND ACOLYTES The C.idct CatholK " Choir piinidcs nuisii. for the ...iJct Masses on Sundays and at special services throughout the vear.

Nearly a score of polished musicians, blowing their lungs out or pounding their fingers to the bone, work feverishly to live up to the praises sung by the entire Corps. Take away the " swing and sway " or " the sweetest music this side of Heaven, " but let the Cadet Orchestra continue to impart new life to every member of the Corps. Plebe or upperclassman, each musician takes in- tense pride in his work. There has ne er been a complaint of the lack of quality, for these men beliexe in the old adage that " Practice makes Perfect.

These men compose our Hop Committee, the brains and back-bone of our chief source of entertainment. It is these men, twelve from each class, who attend to the schedules, the refresh- ments, the receiving line, the decorating of the gvmnasiums or Culluni Hall, and the planning of informals, such as, Kiddie Hops, Halloween Parties, and Camp llluminatit)n.

One Fourth Class Hop Manager from each company is appointed bv the Cadet recreation officer on the recommen- dation of the three upperclass hop managers of the same company. The fourth-classmen selected assemble, elect a chairman, and then begin drawing up plans for their own hops, smokers, and ice carnival at Chnstmas-tide. Immedi- ately after recognition they assemble their classmates to elect permanent hop managers who remain in office for the following three years. Each class hop committee has its own duties, but each must receive at hops, see that Cadets meet the young ladies, and, in general, supervise the conduct of each hop. Theirs is an unsung praise, but the happiness they make possible for the rest of us is contagious and never lets them away from the fold. George ailJ M.111I.

It is the record of our four years here — the record of the strain and heart-ache of the plebe, the tumultuous gladness of recognition, the new freedom, — the record of the growth of our service stripes from none to three, — the record of all the little joys and sorrows of four years companion- ship and life at the academy, — the record and the distinc- tive spirit of our class. 1941 HOWITZEH Our class came here with the old system still prevalent and is leaving under the new.

Because of this constant threat, the 1941 HovvitziiR was put out under pressure a pressure that began when wc were Cows and extended all the way down the line from the l.ditor-in- Chicf to the last Plebe typist. It was a pressure of work that hit all of us hard, hut to which the entire staff re- sponded magnificently. One of the chief aims of this Howitzer was originality and the best way of securing it was by the judicious use of pictures and lots of them. To johnny Brooks and his staff — Mike Aliotta, Harry Trimble, and Tom Maxwell belongs all the credit for the best Hovvitzi:r photo- graphic job yet. They became more than anathema to the Corps, but they got their pictures. Clayton Boggs and Bob Tuttle did the Activities and Occasions.

To be able to produce a book of this calibre with a cost to the cadet very much less than such an annual would cost outside of the academy is a real business achievement. To accomplish it there must be no ex- pensive mistakes in production, the limited circulation and adver- tising facilities available must be pushed to the utmost, and, by eliicient management, the production costs must be pared to the barest minimum. The best Howitzer business staff yet was headed by Howard Felchlin, and under him, Lou Elder high-pressured the Advertising Staff to a new record while Tom Curley was doing the same for cir- culation. The business associates —Dessert, Clinton, Ramee, and Burtchaell made themselves invaluable. The work of the entire Business Staff was of para- mount importance and of huge proportions — and It was well done. We owe thanks to manv in cuilian life, notably to Mr. George Heffernan of B. J. H., invaluable throughout all phases of production, to Mr. Robert Lo ell who did a superlative |ob on lavout and de- sign, and to the unfailing Mr. Charles Weilert, of White Studio. The ofiicer-in-charge of the Ho- wrrzER, Captain Gavin, has generously contributed much time and labor, and has been a very valuable ad iser in matters of general policy.

For the HowrrziiR we wanted w as the informal one — a gacher- ini; of recollections and memories, not merely a precisclv collected, formalized vearbook. To achieve this end we have tried to spread our feeling of informality throughout these pages; we have lavished photographs, shots of our classmates, evervwhere; we have used sketches and informal captions in short, we have concentrated on the West Point ot the Cadet. To achieve this end while simultaneously prcscrxing the essence ot worthwhile dignity inherent m all HowixziiRS has been somewhat of a problem. How well we have reconciled the almost irreconcilable is for you to decide. For we have de- parted from tradition in many ways. Hut the Howuzkr is published now. We are satisfied with our work we hope that the Corps and the class will cherish it and remember it as we who have made it do — as a great task, and as one which we were very proud to assume.

From Puritan austerity to Restoration license, from Victorian prudery to post- war Hemingway, we can follow action to reaction. In less than two decades we have witnessed the same phenomenon within the pages of The Pointer. Begun after the collapse of the Bniy, the new periodical bore little resemblance to its ancestor of dubious repute. During the Twenties heavy emphasis was placed upon sports and humor. Then came a change. Sedateness and dignity crept between the covers. Some of the articles seem to have been composed — written is too light a word — by cadets who put on full dress coats before picking up a pen. The peculiar brand of cadet humor was never suppressed, but more and more the emphasis was placed upon dignity. However, some realized that we already have The Howitzer to record the sterner, " Spartan Mother " as- pect of our lives. And this year McElroy, Vaughan, Campbell, et al gave the pendulum a terrific shove. When the plebes left the EJitfjr-:n-Clncf McEIroy with Mr. Aloore, the printer. «i« I first issue on our desks we recognized only the name. Old de- partments were still present, but in holiday dress. Yet this streamlined edition, for all its freshness, has not be- come a victim, a fawnint; pawn in the hands of the ever-changing fads. Rather it has retained something of the spirit of its predeces- sors, content to give new life and animation to the old order rather than to fear it down completely and erect a new one in its place. From the editorial pages to Pyrene ' s ribald remarks, one characteristic has been preserved a negative one. Like all the volumes before, the new issues never lapse into the " tvpical col- lege comic " class. Perhaps because of the lack of pretty co-eds our tastes remain essentially masculine, and like all stubborn males we take pride in the fact that our magazine portrays our life as it IS. Discipline and rigid routine remain the backbone; it is the aim of The Pointer staff to present this otherwise drab subject matter and all its ramifications in an interesting and pleasing light to all its readers. While the word " streamlined " has been applied to the maga- zine, its contents have paradoxically broadened in scope. No longer is it essentially a magazine for the First Class. Though the senior class received the attention it deserves as such, plebes, yearlings, and even furh)ugh-dazed cows find in The Pointer repre- sentative pages. It has become into practice for each issue to Th( first cIjjs hraini of tht outfit- CUpp tt at. ALi;or County . Ojfiitr w Charf t u,iJ htlpjul Jiji hisl arlooniiti in tht Crpi ti-i Art it jj. i ,.

Always the " Official Publication ofi the Corps of Cadets, " it has captured the " inner workings and: hidden mechanisms " of the Corps.

Needless to say, this is the ultimate goal toward which all editors of Bunle i otes strive. It is their duty to present in the most interesting fashion possible all necessary data relative to the Military Academy which will impart to all readers a clear- cut picture of It. Although the Ih gle Notes is published partly for the informa- tion of civilians interested in our activities, its chief purpose is to gi e the New Cadet a complete though brief picture of the Academy, the Corps, and the traditions and customs for which thev both stand. Containing those pieces of " plebe knowledge " which all plebes must memorize immediatelv upon becoming New Cadets, this little handbook helps to make that transi- tional period from Civilian to Cadet a little easier for all comers. Many are the hours that we have all spent pouring over the pages of this book during our first few weeks at the Academy. It plays such an important part in the beginning of our military careers that it has become appropriately known as the " Plebe Bible. " However, quite unlike other bibles ours fluctuates more or less from vear to ear in an attempt to combine the old with the new. Remaining basically the same in content because traditions and institutions become sounder with age), our Bue lt Notes changes materially only in form, for its chief missions to inform the curious, to instruct the eager — are always the controlling hand, preventing radicalism and sensa- tionalism.

In June Week, accivitics at the Military Academy reach a hiijli point. From the closing dav of aca- demics to the reading of the last name on the new make list not an hour is wasted in making of the week one oi the nation ' s most colorful spectacles. June Week is primarily, of course, dedicated to the graduating class. For them the highlights arc Graduation Ride, Baccalaureate Services, the dedication of the class window and memorial organ stops III the chapel, the Superintendent ' s reception, graduation parade, and (inallv graduation exercises. Others also have their fling, and for the Alumni of the Academy, June Week isofsjiccial interest. Many of the past classes hold reunions at West Point, and while quartered in barracks live again the 497 Ili Ki,,,-, af rh Tra. days spent as cadets. The dav before graduation there are Alumni Exercises on the phiin and the Annual lunchet)n of the Association of Graduates in Cullum Hall. For the undergraduates, too, June Week has its moments.

The Second Class takes over as the new Firsties with the reading of the ne.v make list. To be en|oyed by all are the hops, horseshow, and parades.

A group of American Army officers, seeing the need of immediate help for their families in emergency, with moderate cost to themselves, instituted this life insurance concern in 1879. Among its charter members were Generals Philip H. Sheridan, Arthur MacArthur, R. C. Drum, G. W. Davis, W. R. Shafter, S. B. M. Young, and Emory Upton. For over three score years, this strictly mutual enterprise, constituted and di- rected by its Army Officer membership, has provided Army Officers with life insurance at reasonable rates, has consistently made immediate payments of benefits and never defaulted upon a payment. It is the only fully cooperative life insurance association limiting eligibility for membership to Army Officers. The institution ' s strongest advocates are its members and the widows it has helped. It maintains no agents working on commission and no profits or savings accrue to any one except those insured. It has survived the later Indian campaigns, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection, the Boxer Rebellion and the World War as well as panics and economic depressions and is a strong institution today. Those insured are carefully selected risks of varied age, rank and duty in the Army . The Experience Table shows the growth of membership to have been gradual, consistent and healthy, and that the increase in members has conformed closely to the increases in the Army since the inception of the institution. The mortality rate has averaged low. The age of its members has held comparatively voung. The financial reserve is larger than ever before. Death benefits are paid instantly, SI, 500 being transmitted by uire and the balance bv mail. An outstanding feature of the Association ' s work is its help in preparing the pension and other claims for the bereaved parents, widows and children of its mem- bers. This service, by trained and experienced agents, assures the dependents of members that they will be fully informed concerning rights to Government allow- ances. The importance of this service may be appreciated by the fact that families of ofhcers who were not members of the Association are known to have lost thousands of dollars because of failure to hie timely claims and proper supporting evidence for pensions and other Government allowances. Assistance is also given in the prepara- tion of claims for the collection of insurance in commercial companies. Every eligible Army Officer should become a member and support the work of this Association, both as a matter of good business and as a matter of esprit dc corps. ARMY MUTUAL AID ASSOCIATION V.

To build them, and build them fast, America must have larger and better equipped air- craft factories than ever before. Two years ago, United Aircraft began a vast expansion program toward this end, involving the expenditure of more than 50 million dollars for new facilities. That program is now virtually complete. More than a million and a half square feet of floor space have been added in new buildings, millions of dollars worth of new machinery have been installed, and employment has jumped from 5,000 to 20,000 workers. Most important of all — production has steadily and rapidly increased. Today three modern plants are humming 24 hours a day, building Pratt Whitney engines, Hamilton Standard propellers, and Vought- Sikorsky aircraft at the fastest rate in their history. Here is proof of the vigor and resourcefulness of the American aircraft industry in meeting the unpre- cedented requirements for aeronautical equipment at home and abroad.

Nearly 15 inches in circumference and weighing 20 lbs. per foot, this cable, one of the largest rubber-insulated cables ever made, required for its construction, 16 ' 2 tons of Okolite high xoltage insulation, 261 4 tons of copper. 51 1 2 tons of gahanized steel armor wire and 19 tons of asphalts, tapes, jute filling and the like, as well as 3 tons of Monel metal shielding tape, five one-thousandths of an inch in thickness. The making of such a cable for the pur- pose of assuring the maintenance of a steady flow of vital materials and munitions, consti- tuted another of the jobs in which we take l)articular pride and of which we have had a generous quota.

This work is expressly provided for in the charter 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 obliga- tion through Its vast network of Chapters which cover every county in America. Last year special workers in 3,545 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 ofHces of the ' eterans Administration did their part. Red Cross field directors, residing in Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard stations, helped men in active service and their families. In all, the Red Cross last year helped 264,382 service or ex-service men and their families sur- mount pressing economic obstacles, iron out per- sonnal problems and prove valid service-connected or service-incurred claims for compensation or hospitalization. In time of war the American Red Cross is con- ducted 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 millions who join at the time of the annual Roll Call, held each vear between Armistice Day and Thanksgiving.

It has been a privilege and a pleasure to have worked with you and I want you to know we have enjoyed every part of it. It was a thrill to feel that in a small way, for the time being, I was a part of the Corps. That alone is enough to make any civilian proud and I will always cherish my connection with " the long grey line. " From the very beginning it has been a lot of fun. I don ' t think I will ever forget the first trip to Buffalo. Remember when " the rimt " was air sick and used all the cartons on the plane — much to his disgust and the great glee of Howie. That was the start of a lot of laughs, a few head- aches (?) and what I hope will be many life-long friendships. After that first trip came many memorable events: steaks at Delafleld ' s ... more steaks and crossword puzzles at the Palms ... the Notre Dame game ... the Navy game ... lobsters at Bookbinders ... the Christmas party at Maison Heffernan (I still don ' t know why, Howie, we missed that dispossess notice) Karoll ' s goulash with " Benny Haven ' s " and " The Road to Mandalay " render- ed ' try Dick ' s fine voice. Yes, there was a carefree side. But then, there was the more serious side: the first plans with many a brain struggle to make this the most original HOWITZER ever published ... " It ' s not preat Bob - try again " . . . then the complete dummy of which all of us were proud ... the first submission of photographic copy ... Walter ' s admonition " Seffe In. that is the best engraving copy you ' ve ever seen so you ought to m ke flnHlates " ... the first proofs ... changes and revisions . . hect c coming in a week " ... wnere is came and now it is all over. Yes, it was a lot of fun and while it was a remendousjob, ! or one am sorry it is over. For I am sure " f " " °Jh Jt „„?
