' —V W» -v-s • fc if. L ): George E. Pickett ' 46 NELSON PAUL MONSON Jy [ MiNDEN, Nebraska Thcv called him Paul, this row-headed man from Nebraska. With a challenge in his eyes to all institutions he has climbed far and won his wav to our hearts. He has buzzed through academics with not too great an effort and although not too high in scholastics due to his profound distaste for anything ordered we all look- up to him as a person of wide knowdedge. We will miss Paul when we part, but are consoled by our knowledge that in him the Armv has a hne man. " Paul " Co)ignss!OHal ALFRED JUDSON FORCE MOODY g Hamden, Connecticut " Ace " came to West Point from the Army with a de- termination to do his best in whatever he attempted. We can see from his record that his best was exceptional. His efficiency in things academic can be attested to by many a goat coached by him or engineer who picked up a few extra tenths bv specking Ace ' s home-made poop- sheets. Militarily he is an " on-the-ball hie " if there ever was one. Capable without being a file boner, he should go far in this man ' s Army. " Ace " Army 1.

(« ' ! ' M George B. UcClellan ' 4c t icaK " WILLIAM LEROY MIT( HELL J) RisroN, Ldiisi.wA Possessing poise and confidence, Billy was a leader from the beginning. His fairness and friendliness made him popular with everyone he met. Stopped plebe year from fiiirilimg a long harbored dream of playing football and baseball for Army, he turned to lacrosse, a game he knew nothing about, and became a star. Since he is a college graduate, academics came easy to him; rather than weaken his eyes boning academic rank he saved them for the Air Corps. May his success continue throughout his career in the service. " Bill) " Congressional WALTER FRANCIS MOLESKY Q North. MPTON, Pi;nn ' sylv. ni. Moe ' s military career began at preparatory school where his reputation as a tiny, but potent runt also began . After his entrance into West Point, the realization of a three- year dream, he hit his academics as hard as he hit his opponents on the gridiron. On the latter he won the appellation of " Moc, the Mighty Molecule " . . . His dominant characteristic, aside from his cvcr-prcscnt good- humor, is his spirit of determination to come out on top. He will succeed at any duty assigned to him.

«A John B. Hood ' 33 Willi i -• GEORGE BISSLAND MOORE g Rutland, ermont Although young in years when he entered the Academy, ■ ' Bizz " soon showed that he was mature in every respect. The ideals of West Point are his ideals, and he strives constantly to perpetuate them. In scholastics, in sports, and in tactics he is an outstanding success, and displays in all of them infectious enthusiasm, determination, and unselfish devotion. Success in his chosen field is assured, and there is no reason to doubt that he will go far. As a wife, as an ollicer, and as a gentleman, there is no better. " liizz- Congressional WALTER LEON MOORE. JR. p Bridgeport, West ' iRr,iNi. Mick has many traits — congeniality, a willingness to help others, a keen wit, and a likeable nature — each con- tributing to making Mick one of our best-liked class- mates. His chief ambition is to enjoy life to its fullest extent, and his devil-may-carc attitude is constantly evident. Yet, when Mick had a definite task to perform, his efforts showed such efficiency that no reprimands have come forth from any source. He leaves behind him a clean record and more than one sad feminine heart. " Aiickey " Coritx ssioiial Corporal (2) Captain (1) Football (4) Track (4-3-2-1 " !
