Today all is a part of the past; all is stored away in the backs of our minds to unfold again when Peace returns, and we can spend an Autumn day walking leisurely down some leaf-strewn path. Then we will reminisce over those days on the Hudson and every thought will bring back a vivid picture: bracing, boyish-looking Plebes; hilarious, over-worked Yearlings; sobering, mentally growing Cows; respon- sible, goal-determined First Classmen. Here is painted the warmth of fellowship, the joys and sorrows we knew together as cadets.

THE ACADEMIC BOARD Because its deliberations and decisions are confidential, an air of mystery surrounds the Academ- ic Board. It does, however, grant diplomas and make recommendations for commissions in the army. Major changes in instruction (such as that occasioned by the change from four years of instruction to three ) and the adoption of new text books must be apjiroved by a majority vote of tiie members. Of course it is the Academic Board which sets standards for admission and stand- ards of proficiency; one of its less well known responsibilities is the selection of memorials to be ])laced in Cullum Hall. orking under the shadows of their prototype Charlemagne and his fighting cohort, these mili- tary educators continue to maintain the highest academic standards despite the reduction of their four year base of operations to three. 35 Second run-.

" In the study of military art. the conquerors of the ages charged from our te l to do battle in the section room. The ofTensives and defensives of Vi orld ar II came in for greater attention, but though our Stuart " s of today ride in tanks m half-tracks, our Berthier ' s in jeeps, the basic strategy remains. " Military historv. therefore, becomes the laboratory of the military man. " Colonel Con The Law Department often acts as legal advisor to cadet and cadet organizations: to the Ring Committee, for example by checking our contract to see that we ade(]uately protected ourselyes. Its primary function, hovvexer, is instruction of the First Class. Our introduction to elementary law. criminal law. and rules of eyidence was preparation for a study of the " Manual for Courts-Martial. " This document actpiaints us with the code of military law. the Articles of ar. under which we will govern and be governed for the remainder of our service. The fair administration of justice is not possible without at least a basic knowledge of military law. By detailed study of the manual and attendance at courts-martial on the post we further familiarized ourselves with the fundamental legal principles. DEPARTMENT OF E€ON lUick row. — Capt. MiAnany.

Every branch of tlie service is concerned with some kind of ordnance materiel ; hence the Department of Ordnance directs the instruction of f irst classmen in enfiiiieerinfi processes, ballistics, and essentials of engine operation and main- tenance. Following but a few weeks of studv it is readilv apparent that the results of extended technical investigation and experiment are utilized between the pull on tli ' lanyard of a field gun and the sidisequent shattering of a target some thousands of yards away. Gun construction and interior ballistics com- prise one part. For another, studv and comparison of both explosives and fuzes make clear the functioning of th ' shell itself. This is one of the oldest but at the same time most modern of the academic departments. Originated in 1(517 as the De|tartnient of Artillery, it has since condiined practical with theoretical instruction in this vital phase of the military curriculum. I ' lifortunately. our war-shortened course lost us the opportiniity to Mlili ' the facilities of the modern and complete ordnance laboratory. ». (jpl. ¥1: fjpl »i. Opt I fci Hi]. •m. C»l.

Through courses in European and Far Eastern liistory, government, and economics — including the essentially new geo- politics — Colonel Beukenia and his assistants have labored long and earnestlv to show us the background of our civilization, to analvze carefully and correctlv characteristics and features of international relations and to enable us to see for ourselves the underlying motives and fundamental impulses of human conduct. Quite appropriately, in addition to teaching est Pointers, this depart- ment was largely responsible for outlining and planning educational courses for the millions of men called to arms in this conflict — the greatest and most demanding task of our time.

At Christmas we were (piite pleased to find that the entire class came throuirh with (Uinj: colors the first in many years with no turn-outs. This was only half a year ' s work.

The constant search for the Exact ord hroufjht to ns a realization of its ii:i|)oriaiice: tlie ability to write orders which caiuiot possibly be mis- iwidcrstood is essential in a militarv header. ( )tir study of literature, meanwliiie, spanned the centuries between Cynewulf and Dos Passos. The basic purpose, we feel, was to teach us to speak and write clearly, -oncisely. and correctly, while ac(|uaiiitini; us witli a fjeneral suryey of literature. The literature enriched our cultural backfiround: the speakiiif!; and writinir |)repared us for the more efficient performance of our military duties.

" " Mn 1941-42 our Department of Natural and Experiment- al Philosophy became the Department of Mechanics, but the modernization of name required no corresponding modernization of courses. From running veri- fication tests of hydraulic formulae to working on performance graphs of the P-47 (at that time still on the drawing boards I the department ' s work is modern: Analytic Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics. Lastly, Theory of Flight enabled the many of us who flew last summer to grasp our ground school work easily and help the A%n ( " . ' s with theirs. Hudson ' s Manual had to take the place of the almost traditional Marks " , but using all of the twenty scales on our slide rules helped to compensate for the difference.

German and Portuguese have been added to the alread y standard French and Spanish to meet the increased language needs in the service today. Our instruction was limited to Spanish and French. Two years of French, and we threw our books at the Gold Tooth in June, ready to parler en franqais on furlough if need arose. One year of Spanish laid the foundation for a broader knowledge of the language from south of the Rio Grande. M. Vauthier retired from the department last ear.

OuRiNG OUR TENURE in the aerie of Washington Hall, eighty-eight steps high, the Department of Drawing became the Department of Military Topography and Graphics and stools were introduced to rest our feet between problem sheets. Meanwhile, two years of aj)pIication were rewarded by a basic knowledge of surveying, blue print reading, and map and aerial photograph reading. After crew-running plane table, transit-stadia, and level problems, we staked out bomb-proof shelters. Progressive practice at the drawing board enabled us to create from a book full of blue prints an assembly drawing recognizable as the 37mm gun. Expanded instruction in map and aerial photograph reading based on the con- tour maps we sketched on the ground completed this course of such sound pro- fessional value. 45 DEPARTxMENT OF MATHEMATICS After gaim ' G a nodilinfr acfjnaintancc witli tlie De- partment of Mathematics on entrance cxaminalions, we marclicd fortli in Sc|ttem- ber.

Fewer water bags and rat races have made noticeable the absence of our Air Corps first classmen. We missed their energetic spirit. As A (Company supplied the bulk of the forward wall of Army ' s mighty football team, so it gave to the T.D. more than their share of Captains.

In spite of being under the constant gaze of the T.D., thus inevitably becoming a proving ground, we have never failed to have fun, principally because we have learned well the science of strategy. We are especially proud of our confirmed bachelors — they drag almost too often. Our unofficial representatives are evervwhere — Flirtation, the Boodlers, the Thayer, and the Area. Our football sheets wave valiantly for the Lords of South Guard House, and when the INIess Hall waiters ' barracks are finally completed we will have a definite con- tribution for we fell and heard every block go into place.

Through the earnest efforts of her upper- classes and the cooperation of her fourth class, the spirit of old C Com- pany — to be the best company in the Corps — permeates the ranks. Though we always missed those men who earned their wings at schools far away, the war could not break our solidarity. Spoken of as " hard, " yet spoken of with respect, we won our share of glory and drill streamers, faced our troubles, and had our fun. Representing ourselves as middle- of-the-road cadets we easily fit into the system that is the Corps of Cadets and feel justly proud of our determination to carry into the service with us the principles and ideals of West Point.

Preferring intramural athletics to Corps Squads, nevertheless his non- routine activities were varied; his first loves were his classical records. A quiet- spoken person, his friends were true ones. Yearling summer camp was a dead- heat — furlough was better — and graduation meant the donning of olive drab and the attainment of his goal.

The new Brigade Organization created Company F-2 from a cadre of Company L and Company K. The backgrounds of each have meshed perfectly. We find the pleasures of life and proceed to enjoy them — even at the expense of the T.D. Not " file boners, " yet military enough to win an occasional first line, our ranks are interspersed with star men, cadet instructors, true " goats, " a unicyclist, and some very " hot pilots.

UOIVOR COMMITTEE A man may lack wealth; he may even lack liealth, but as long as he can maintain his lienor, he will always command the respect of the people about him. Upon our arrival at West Point we were introducetl to the unique honor system drawn up by the cadets and operated by their own chosen representatives for their own benefit. So much is this code respected by all cadets, that no breach of honor is ever permitted to pass unnoticed. The Honor Committee, composed of one first cla. ' snian from each Company and the Cadet First Captain, renders decisions and interpretations on all points of honor and acts as guardian of the code. After Ii iiif; un(hT the honor system for a few months, it was liard to realize how we had ever done without it before we entered the Academy, e had come to fullv understand its profound significance; we shall endeavor to spread our code throughout tlie army during our careers as officers. 436 I. i1 J LECTURE COMMITTEE Ten years ago, as one of the many tried but seldom successful experiments to dis- spell the dreariness of Winter ' s gloom and hasten the days mitil Jiuie, a Cadet Lec- ture Committee was created. Members of this committee succeeded in arranging a series of short, informal lectures for the Corps. Finding a ready response, the committee expanded its activities and jumped into the entertainment world. To- day, in a series of Sunday night performances, it brings to the Academy many well- known personages of the stage, screen, and radio. We thank the committee for bringing the outside world to West Point. Fuller, Epperson, Boatner, Smith. Absent: Handy, W. L., Moore, C. J. 437 Buck row. Westbrook, Olds, Grady, Mathe.

Our Ring; Coniniittee is composed of cadets who supervised the selection of our class rings. As fourth classmen they chose a crest for our class. By our second class vear our ring was completed.

Whereas, in less than two brief centuries, we have, with the helj) of the Board of Governors, developed as fine a club to relax in as any similar club in the world. 439 i Ugly rumors finally materialized — but the result was far from bad. For many summers the Corps has been astir with reports of a mere, fun-stripped cadet hop to replace Camp Illumin- ation. In all fairness to " ole man rumor " we must admit that a cadet hop was substituted for the traditional and time-honored celebration instituted in 1781 by George Washington. In all fairness to ourselves, however, " ole man rumor " must admit that our " Camp Iloomy " reached the epitome of success for a novel and almost experimental idea. We realized that sarongs, pris- oners ' suits, and private get-ups were hardly 441 J ill keeping with the spirit of West Point at war. So we did tlie next best thing — we wore khaki and the femiiies wore street dresses. Everybody was more tliaii pleased with the new comfort; our fun was evidenced by the merry multitude that swamped both gymnasiums, shagging and waltzing during the early hours to the musical strains of two bands. Free " boodle " was to be had in the weapons room: hot dogs and soft drinks were sold at a canteen, the profits going to the U. S. O. Gaiety ran rampant, and our innovation culminated in a most delightful precedent. 44 a ii:ra LrB ((i(A roiv: Davis, Black. An (l(i iin, St. John. Hogiefe (,lKirl-(iii. Fijthrow: Miller llaiTililfii.

Built in the turn of tlie twentieth century, it has stood ever since as a symbol of religious freedom and The Catholic Chapel Choir the American way of life.

Nowhere at est Point is the meaning of the word " duty " made clearer. As the Knights of King Arthur ' s Court attended Mass and Holy Communion before setting out on a dangerous journey, so, too, the twentieth century knights in grey prepare themselves in the same manner for their journey through the battlefields of orld War II. Men on battlefields of the past, and men on battlefields of the future will pause on the brink of death to recall fondly the little chapel on the hill pointing out the road to Heaven.

Under the direction of Captain Resta, the concert orchestra has a cadet following that enjoys playing classical music as much as the " hep cats " enjoy dan- cing to " swing " music. At various times during the year their concerts, high-lighted hv able renditions of well-known and difficult melodies, have received very favorable comments from their audiences, ith the present Fourth Class, a larger orchestra has been developed with a full complement of instruments helping to improve and round out the orchestra of old.

Management and labor working to- gether are delivering the tools of war in ever increasing quantities. The second vital move on the chessboard of war is now taking place — the use of these tools for Victory. » » A flood of planes, ships, tanks and other mobile units is pouring from American factories. Okonite is making many of the insulated wires and cables on which they depend for power, control and communication. Even the dearth of rubber has not stopped us, because our research labora- tories years ago learned how to use synthetics and other materials for insulation. » » Without the constant faith in our country ' s future that spurred us and hundreds of other American Industries to maintain these research labora- tories — our armed forces might still be waiting for the necessary tools of Victory.

IV. J.. II. S. A. XIV w e cou Id have done this a year ago J . glance at the calendar will tell you how long the United States has been at war. But here at North American Aviation we ' ve thrown the calen- dar away. Today we are building planes that are years ahead of the planes we were building in 1941. Those late-19-41 planes of ours were gooi . According to one theory of production we would have been justified in " freezing " the designs wc had in production on that fateful December 7th and concentrating entirely on turning out those planes. But we don ' t work that way, nor do the Army and Navy work that way. We know frozen weapons won ' t win the war, because the war itself can ' t be frozen. So we keep our production methods flex- ible, and whenever battle experience or engineering genius or mechanical skill suggests a change that will improve our planes, we make the change. And we go on looking for other improvements. That ' s why " North American Sets the Pace " — why our planes are selected for such missions as the first raid on Tokyo (North American B-25 bombers) or to bear the brunt of low-aliitude fighting over Nazi-held Europe (North American P-31 Mustangs). We are making these better planes so much faster that we con- sistently better our production quotas. But today, as always, the main idea of every North American employee is to make every North American plane the best bomber, fighter or trainer that can possibly be produced at the moment it is completed. The taxpayers and Bond buyers of the nation pay for the planes we build. Their sons, brothers, sweethearts and husbands fly them. In those two facts is all the reason we need to continue building the best planes that skilled hands and unfrozen brains can build. When you ' re through making changes, you ' re through!

We do not question the possi- bility that low-priced uniforms have their place in the scheme of things, but they don ' t belong among the high class products of a military tailor. Hence Horstmann Uniforms are selected for their superior quality, fit and workmanship and we have never found it advisable to change this policy. XXI I ACTING FOR THE PEOPLE Each year the American Red Cross calls upon the facilities of its nation-wide organization to give assistance to the armed forces of the country and help deserving veterans of past wars. 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 many 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 Veterans 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. Last year the Red Cross helped many thousands of service or ex-service men and their families sur- mount pressing economic obstacles, iron out per- sonal 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 year between Armistice Day and Thanksgiving. riVILIA!

Ever since its inception in 1802, America has looked to the United States Military Academy for leaders who could provide the protection needed by our nation. And we have not looked in vain. Glorious deeds have been recorded by your prede- cessors during peace time as well as war time. Even at this moment, hundreds of your notable alumni are acquitting themselves valiantly on America ' s far- flung battlefields. That is why America salutes you today as new officers and potential leaders of our fighting forces. As you go forth to serve your Country, we know you will be heartened by the information that at home America ' s industry and manufacturing genius stand 100 per cent behind you to produce the arms and equipment you will need for Victory. At Pontiac Motor Division, for example, the experi- ence gained in building more than two million quality automobiles is being applied without stint to the task at hand — the production, on or ahead of schedule, of the tools of war on six major assign- ments. The successful prosecution of this task calls, not only for resourcefulness and ingenuity, but also for zeal and full devotion to duty. This is our assignment to help you and your comrades in arms man America ' s fighting fronts. And we fulfill it willingly and with the confident knowledge that the tools of war we are producing will be put to competent use under your direction.

I IM KiXOWS MOKE ABOUT Kli:MINGTO ' RAND THAN ANYBODY The Army knew about Remington Type- writers ever since typewriters were first made . . . 1874. The Army knew that from that time onward, Remington Typewriters were the progressive leaders in typewriter development. The Army used them for many, many years on the toughest proving ground a typewriter ever faces and they came out with colors flying. The Army knew all about Remingtons . . . just as did the American public. But now the Army knows more about Remington Rand than anybody because Remington Rand is devoting all of its typewriter manufactur- ing space, personnel and equipment to make direct fighting weapons . . . things the Army uses. It ' s a long list, too, but beside the point here. The real pertinent fact that remains is that the same precision skill, master craftsman- ship and progressive ingenuity that went into those Remington Typewriters, now goes into the tools you will be using to beat the Axis. Considering our near 70-year preci- sion tradition, it is completely gratifying that we can lend a helping hand in this way to pave the road to Victory. |i 4rn KlilMINGTON BAND INC. TYPEWRITER DIVISION • BUFFALO, N. Y. XLVIII ! FAITH T HH greatest asset of a man, a business or a nation is faith. The men who built this country and those who made it pros- per during its darkest days were men whose faith in its future was unshakable. Men of courage, they dared to go forward despite all hazards; men of vision, they always looked forward, never backward. Christianity, the greatest institution humanity has ever known, was founded by twelve men, limited in education, limited in re- sources, but with an abundance of faith and divine leadership. In these days of stress let us hold to faith: faith in divine leadership; faith in the power of Christianity; faith in the leader- ship of our Commander-in-Chief, President Roosevelt; faith in his official staff and all the men in our armed forces; and faith in ourselves. As Whittier declared: " The steps of faith fall on seeming void, but find the rock beneath. " In the situation which faces the world today the " seeming void " ceases to exist when we realize the solid rock beneath our The vision essential to clear thinking; the common sense needed for wise decisions; the courage of convictions based on facts not fancies; and the constructive spirit of faith as opposed to the de- structive forces of doubt will preserve our Christian ways of life and win the war.

Then we will reminisce over those days on the Hudson and every thought will bring back a vivid picture: bracing, boyish-looking Plebes; hilarious, over-worked Yearlings; sobering, mentally growing Cows; respon- sible, goal-determined First Classmen.

It does, however, firant diplomas and make recommendations for connnissions in the army. Major ciianges in instruction I such as tliat occasioned by the change from four years of instruction to three) and the adoption of new text hooks must be approved by a majority vote of the members. Of course it is the Academic Board which sets standards for admission and stand- ards of proficiency: one of its less well known responsibilities is the selection of memorials to be placed in Cullum Hall. U orking under the shadows of their prototype Charlemagne and his fighting cohort, these mili- tary educators continue to maintain the highest academic standards despite the reduction of their four year base of operations to three.

That summer we learned from our instructors in practical military engineeriiii; some- thing of building bridges, preparing road blocks, and demolitions. Vt itli the return to academics, the beams and trusses on which we had hammered and heaved reappeared on blackboard and paper in " red for compression, blue for tension. " In the study of military art, the conquerors of the ages charged from our texts to do battle in the section room. Tlie offensives and defensives of nrld W ar IT cam e in for greater attention, but though our .Stuart ' s of today ride in tanks or half-tracks, our Berthier ' s in jeeps, the basic strategy remains. " Military liistorw therefore, becomes the laboratory of the military man. " Colonel Connor The Law Department often acts as legal advisor to cadet and cadet organizations: to the Ring Committee, for example by checking our contract to see that we adequately protected ourselves. Its primary function, however, is instruction of the First Class. t)ur introduction to elenKiitar law. criminal law. and rules of evidence was preparation for a study of tlie " Manual for Courts-Martial. " This document acquaints us with the code of military law, the Articles of War, under which we will govern and be governed for the remainder of our service. The fair administration of justice is not possible without at least a basic knowledge of military law. By detailed study of the manual and attendan ce at courts-marti il on the post we further familiarized ourselves with the fundamental kt:al principles.

If SOLDIER breaks his rifle stock, or a personnel carrier requires higher echelon maintenance, the first call is for the ordnance. Every branch of the service is concerned with some kind of ordnance materiel; hence the Department of Ordnance directs the instruction of first classmen in engineering processes, ballistics, and essentials of engine operation and main- tenance. Following but a few weeks of study it is readily ajjparent that the results of extended technical investigation and experiment are utilized between tlie |)iill on tlu- Janvard of a field gun and the subsequent shattering of a target some thousands of yards away, (iun construction and interior ballistics com- prise one part. For another, study and comparison of both e ])losiyes ami fuzes make clear the functioning of the shell itself. This is one of the oldest but at the same time most modern of the academic (Icpartnienls. (Originated in IJilT as the Department of Artillery, it has siiu e cumltined ] raclical with tlieoretical instruction in this vital phase of the military ciirri.iihiin. I nfortunately. our war-shortened course lost us the opportunity to utilize the facilities of tlie modern and complete ordnance laboratory. Pearl Harbor emphatically vindicated the prognostica- tions of this department, whose officers correctly forecast the downpour from the angry clouds overhanging world politics. Through courses in European and Far Eastern history, government, and economics — including the essentially new geo- politics — Colonel Beukenia and his assistants have labored long and earnestly to show us the background of our civilization, to analyze carefully and correctly characteristics and features of international relations and to enable us to see for ourselves the underlying motives and fundamental impulses of human conduct. Quite appropriately, in adckilioii to tciuliing West Pointers, this depart- ment was largelv responsible for outlining and planning educational courses for the millions of men called to arms in tliis conflict — the greatest and most demanding task of our lime.

The expansion of the Corps recjuires the addition of a fourth floor to the hospital: where would there be room for the sick should there he another out- l)reak like the Great Mess Hall Influenza Epidemic of 1940? As an academic department, its concern is to acquaint the cadets of the First Class properly with their responsibilities, as line officers, for the health of their troops. In terms of combat efficiency, a dead man requires but two attendants: a sick man. a dozen. Inorganic Chemistry was a real chance, after two years of training, to reason to a logical coiu ' lusion. Ionization, colorfully demon- strated hy Chauncey " s test tubes of many colors furnished us all food for tli()ii ;ht. and the minor explosions fascinated us. Early graduation again Mustd more UMa oidahle condensation, hut our introduction to the elements and molecules was far from hasty. Chemistry was only half a term ' s work. Electricity, in the second half. introduced us to radio and vacuum tube theory as well as operation and trouble shooting on signal corps field telej hones. Throughout the year came lectures — part-time, full-time, or " everything in lieu of nothing. " Hours in the laboratory verified many of the theoretical principles which we struggled with at the blackboards in the classroom. Hack row: — Lt. Meany, Lt. Clem ens. Lt. Gist, Lt. Lentz, Cap.

For two years Unity, tlolierenee. and Emphasis (lodged tmr footsteps through prose ranging from character sketch to technical report: through ])iil)lic s])eaking ranging from informal class conference to formal (lehate. The constant search for the Exact ord hroiight to ns a realization of its im| orlance: the ahility to write orders uhicli cannot possihly he mis- understood is essential in a military leader. Our study of literature, meanwhile, spanned the centuries between Cynewidf and Dos Passos. The hasic purpose, we feel, was to teach us to speak and write clearly, coticisely. ami correctly, while acquainting us with a general survey of literature. The literature enricheil our cultural hackground: the speaking and writing prepar d us for the more efficient performance of our military duties.

Pointers in hand, it took our every effort to peer into the lliird dimension on a l)lackboard obviously flat, a la Euclid.

However, the score, 12 to 3, does not tell how Bob Whitlow held the Giants to 2-2 tie for five innings, nor how " Goose " Guckey- son parked a fast ball out on Cullumn balcony for a round tripper. The collegiate season starting off differently saw four victories reeled off in rapid succession. Cornell (5-1), Vermont (8-2), Georgetown (7-3), and Harvard (12-9) were the victims, yielding to a combination of the excellent pitching of Tarver, Whitlow, and McGuire, and the powerful hats of Maziir, Rickman, and Guckeyson. Tlien came Williams! The " rahhle " was so definitely off color that Steinle, a shortstop had to he called to the mound to stop the dehacle at 23-2. Still staggering from this Williams game Army fought Syracuse to a 12-12 tleadlock in a game called at 6:45 on account of darkness. Swinging into stride the team knocked off Penn (15-9), .

Columbia dropped out of the running as far as the score was con- cerned early in the meet but Nebraska made it a battle down through the final event, and was a plenty tough customer.

This victory added to the confidence of the undefeated tracksters and sharpened them for the langerous Notre Dame team. Mogers took first in the 100 and 200 yard dashes against Notre Dame, and Walling the 120 high hurdles, breaking the Academy record. White ' s throw of 212 feet clearly decided the javelin event.

The Rabble came back with their " Big Stick " policy, however, and rallied to defeat Pennsylvania 11 to 1 and Vale 8 to . . ;: ; The team redeemed its loss to Maryland by defeating Johns Hopkins (4-1), who, in turn, had previously turned back Maryland. Goalie Grain was the outstanding performer in this victory, completely outplaying the Hopkins ' Ail-American Goalie.

After graduation, our class divided with groups of men in khaki marching to troop trains for primary flying stations while the ground cadets clad in civilian clothes or whites left on furlough. Upon arrival at flying schools, we found that we were " Dodos " and a short plehe system was in efi " ect. Falling easily into the routine, our six weeks were a series of flight training and ground school schedules on weekdays and then relaxation and visits on week-ends. After eight hours flying time, we soloed and advanced to cross country flying and aerobatics.

Tlie Tactical Deparlmeiit welcomed the ground cadets back from furlough and announced that the tactical trip to Pine Camp would begin the next evening. Immediately upon arriving at our destination, we were taken on maneuvers and our instructions in armed force tactics and tech- nique began. We drove tanks, half-tracks, motorcycles, and peeps until proficient in their use and operation. We fired all armored force weapons on their ranges. In addition, our group of ground cadets acted as junior officers in all component units of the division and we carried out command tasks in their tactical problems. During this period, we learned foremost how, as graduates, we would fit into the rapidly expanding army. After Pine Camp, we, as members of tlie " Bea Detail " readied ourslves to welcome the New Cad- ets to the Academy.

Besides flying several hours each day, we attended ground school in code, instrument flying, and navigation. Add to this regular " cow " academics of Chemistry, Mechanics, and Language, the day was always full. Day after day, this was to continue with solo work, instrument flying, and aerobatics adding more hours to our log book which was to give us the further foundation toward advanced training during first class year.

As the first class year was approaching rapidly, we began to look over ring samples, and after a few- weeks, our long considered orders were placed.

Three days later the cadets bat- tled uphill against a stubborn and under rated Rutgers quint for a 46-44 victory. This game more than any other showed the power of the Army five. Phiipott dented the cords six times in succession from deep on the court, but " Panther " Hall stole the show with Ail-American floor play. The work of the " underclassmen " in this game showed definite proof that next year ' s season will find them moidded into a smooth working and efficient ball club. ParjiU. Gcllz. Penn slate put the elampg on the Kaydets, and Army did not recover until the second half of tlie Dartmouth game when they fought the liighly-touted Hanover Indians to a standstill. They then carried on against Harvard by smash- ing the Field House scoring 72-40. Once again it was Hall and Philpott in bold type, but Damon, Gellz, Parfitt, Hennessey, Christl, Kenna, and Simpson did their share too. We like to think of the Fordham game as a " lull before the storm, " as the Kaydets were 7Viev all count! 146 adly off form, and tlierefore lost lo the Rani. Tlie Army quint reaclietl its peak against a fine Navy five. Enough cannot be said for co-captain elect, Ed Ciiristl who woidd have made anyone ' s All-American team that day. Ed seemed to get every reboimd as ' ivell as playing a great defen- sive game. " Chief " Mathe and Hal Parfitt closed their basketball careers with a fine show, but the whole team was responsible for making the season successful by their great victory over the Middies. mBUjU l iS - ' i " " " ' ' ' ' ■ ' ' SSS BOXIXG • 1943 Lfli ,. riaht. rear rniv: IT ool I ,nl, l.ituhin.

Jan 16 Jan M) Fel, l:i F.-1, 20 Feb 27 At the close of the 1942 Boxing Season close followers predicted the 1943 edition would be the forthcoming Intercollegiate Champions. January 19th saw several of the most promis- ing members of the team step forth as 2nd Lieutenants leaving Coach Billy Cavanaugh but two regulars, Charley Pence and Ed Bardett, as a nucleus for his new team. That same week saw the new team drop a close decision to Maryland. Then followed a draw with West- ern Maryland, a disappointing loss to the Coast Guard Academy, and a loss to Syracuse. From this point on the team hit its stride and disposed of Penn State and West Virginia in short order. The highlight of the season was the Intercollegiate Meet at Syracuse, N. Y. Th,-re ami „„ linll " III the semi-finals we saw six Army sluggers — Lindsay, Pence, Doolittle, Fitzpatrick, McGlolhlin, and Bur- del t — and a chance to garner a team championship. All dropped close decisions except Fitzpatrick and McGlothlin who went into the finals. Fitzpatrick went on to win the 163 lb. bout and with it the East- ern Intercollegiate Championsliip.

After an initial setback by P.M.C., a green team composed of Surkanip, Baldwin, and Danforth developed rapidly into a team well worth watching.

The comfortable atmosphere of this well-equipped haven was sought like an oasis when a few spare minutes could be found. Not, of course, that there were generous sprink- lings of spare minutes; what, Mith the ground and air cadets each trying to scream down the other in sounding off about their respective schedules. Some of our formerly free time was now taken up by guard duty, Judo, and by a more ambitious form of Yogi, doubtlessly designed lo prepare us for duty in Alaska. Future generals. mmmmsmssmw First class arademirs were not quite the deadbeat we were snared into expeelini;. The were intensive but interesting.

Those of us who were air cadets thought we hati worked hard during the preceding summer and fail, but in advanced trainin ! we were to be rudely awakened to the terrifying realiza- tion that we had not yet begun to work. We were assigned to either single or twin engine squadrons, and we started working for perfection. New ships meant just that much more for us to learn, and with AT 6 ' s, lO ' s and ll ' s we started out on the last lap of our training. As we progressed in advanced training, we flew formation, practiced combat maneuvers, and 186 Man Irnm Miirs. ■■. . . Ihr niiil hlur ynmter.

We had a great deal of flying time to put behind us and flew on week-ends, often having our cherished leaves snatched from us at the very last. Sleep became a thing of the past as we flew nights until dawn and made extensive cross- country flights. Another important and final phase of our flight training was the firing for record on the aerial gunnery range in which the problems of aerial combat were brought home to us.

Excelling in all fields of endeavor (especially in athletics and rat-races), the iiltra-niilitar collection of men who live over the Boodlers have heen drawn together in a spirit of comradeship and fralernilx that will make hetter soldiers and men of them wherever they serve. Breaking in four new tactical officers and surviving the turnouts have been our greatest worries, as well as our greatest accomplish- ments. Although the T.D. took five of our spooniest files for outside dut we have managed somehow. Everyone of us eagerly awaits the Honor of Duty for our Country. FIIIST 4 LA S II :. .on. Ituinpr. |{.

No other group is prouder than we are of our place in " the long grey line. " Our goats are the goatiest, our comforters the most comfortable, our athletes tops in the Corps, and it is said that every femnie knows a dozen B-Co men. Our hallways in barracks have resounded with the tunudtuous clamor of many a rat race. However, when it is tinu to work we are all right in the lead doing our share and more. Pleasant are the memories each of us will cherish in the years to come. Fllt T « LA«! . IK Km, l{„„: Dargue, Garrelt, ilanish, I ' rire. Bca.li. Nrwi r il, l „w: Taylor, Steinbring, Beck. McDowell.

True, we do be- lieve in la lie militaiie. but such belief is tempered by common sense and a humor essen- tial in the exactitudes of a soldier ' s life. Although interests vary from the red comforter to the station-wagon set, we have maintained our traditions of supplying the leaders of the Corps. Our wish and purpose is that we shall be a credit to the Corps, and to our Alma Mater; may we deserve all that they have given to us.

We have our share of goats and engineers, of aces and dodoes, of athletes and comforteers, of ranking files and sluggoids. We have taken what the Corps has offered and found it good.

Under Major Bill Wansboro she has changed the " D " of delinquent and deficient to the " E " of excellence and effi- ciency. While contributing more than her share of Corps Squad and activity men, she also survived her first Foundation Day with smaller loss than any other company in the Corps. The attribute of which " E " Company has reason to be most proud, however, is her company spirit which has found expression in class picnics and in sponlaneous singing groups in the area.

Here is the plain, and there tiie majestic sweep Of crowding hills, that still looks just the same Today, our class comes to end the race As those cadets did many years ago. We hit Beast Barracks with as great a jar As any class has done. We did our time In Summer Camp, and many are the men That Old Foimdation took. We were the link Between new days that came upon West Point And former times. She has known many a change. We still remember nights in Summer Camp, And peacetime Furlough, dream of yearling dreams nd can recall The Hook and Uncle Joe. And olden company-lore of " K " and ' " M " That now are gone. In their place we have seen The Alma Mater rise to War ' s old call. The Grey Line swells with younger, different hearts. nd we are going, to answer that call too. X e are the class of Jun( , of Forty-three. We do not know what lies ahead, and vet Are glad. For we have worked so long within These sometimes too-strong walls of ancient stone That we, at last, are eager for what comes. Reader of this book in after days, (iazer at old pictures of our class Perhaps you know what lay ahead of us. Who long ago went forth into the strife, nd left a few old pictures on these walls. H. T.

He is courteous vet demanding in all his opinions — a valued friend, a level-headed associate, hiunorous, jovial, and appreciative, ready to share your mood as you would have it shared.

According to one theory of production we would have been justified in " freezing " the designs «e had in production on that fateful December 7th and eoncentrating entirely on turning out those planes. But we don ' t work that way, nor do the Army and Navy work that way. We know frozen weapons wont win the war, because the war itself can ' t be frozen. So wc keep our production methods flex- ible, and whenever battle experience or engineering genius or mechanical skill suggests a change that will improve our planes, we make the change. And we go on looking for other improvements. That ' s why " North American Sets the Pace " — why our planes are selected for such missions as the first raid on Tokyo i North American B-25 bombersi or to bear the brunt of low-altitude fighting over Nazi-held Europe (North American P-51 Mustangs}. We are making these better planes so much faster that we con- sistently better our production quotas. But today, as always, the main idea of every North American employee is to make every North American plane the best bomber, fighter or trainer that can possibly be produced at the moment it is completed. The taxpayers and Bond buyers of the nation pay for the planes we build. Their sons, brothers, sweethearts and husbands fly them. In those two facts is all the reason we need to continue building the best planes that skilled hands and unfrozen brains can build. When you ' re through making changes, you ' re through!

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 many 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 Veterans 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. Last year the Red Cross helped many thousands of service or ex-service men and their families sur- mount pressing economic obstacles, iron out per- sonal problems and prove valid service-connected or service-incurred claims for compensation or hospit alization. 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 year between Armistice Day and Thanksgiving. 4 IVIMA.X A- MII.ITAItV TAIIOK.S 485 Madison Avenne ' •NewTfork al .

Ever since its inception in 1802, America has looked to the United States Military Academy for leaders who could provide the protection needed by our nation. And we have not looked in vain. Glorious deeds have been recorded by your prede- cessors during peace time as well as war time. Even at this moment, hundreds of your notable alumni are acquitting themselves valiantly on Ainerica ' s far- flung battlefields. That is why America salutes you today as new officers and potential leaders of our fighting forces. As you go forth to sei ' e your Country, we know you will be heartened by the information that at home America ' s industry and manufacturing genius stand 100 per cent behind you to produce the arms and equipment you will need for Victory. At Pontiac Motor Division, for example, the experi- ence gained in building more than two million quality automobiles is being applied without stint to the task at hand — the production, on or ahead of schedule, of the tools of war on six major assign- ments. The successful prosecution of this task calls, not only for resourcefulness and ingenuity, but also for zeal and full devotion to duty. This is our assignment to help you and your comrades in arms man America ' s fighting fronts. And we fulfill it willingly and with the confident knowledge that the tools of war we are producing will be put to competent use under your direction.

Nichols t MEMBER FEnEBAI, OEPOSIT INSIRANC E COKl ' OKAl r,oN LXX he Origin of the Jeep The original JEEP is NOT an automobile converted into some kind of a tractor, but rather a farm tractor converted to serve our armed forces. The name ' Jeep ' was first given to an Army tractor by the Minnesota National Guardsmen at Camp Ripley, Minnesota, during their encamp- ment the summer of 1940, and is not a contraction of the two words " General Purpose ' (GP), but was taken from the Popeye cartoons. The word ' Jeep ' was first applied to an army vehicle in print by the St. Paul Pioneer Press on August 14, 1940, under the headlines, " The " Jeep " and the General See Action. " THL Minncapolis-Moline Power Implement Com- pany, as far back as 1938, was working on thi. conversion of a farm tractor to an artillery prinu mover, and, in collaboration with Adjutant Gcii eral Walsh of the Minnesota National Guard, sonu experimental models were placed in the Arnn maneuvers at Camp Ripley in 1940, as a continii.i tion of the experiments conducted there tli. previous year. ARMY NAMED IT JEEP This vehicle was a 4-whccl drive or, as referred to in military parlance, a 4 x 4. It was not a truck, nor was it the conventional type of caterpillar tractor customarily used for hauling guns. When Army trucks became bogged down in swamps di ' dug into sand, or, when artillery pieces got off the road, this tractor was used to extricate the bogged down vehicle. It could climb trees, go through swamps and sand; it had a roller bumper on front, a machine gun could be mounted on its cab; it cleared the way for tanks through underbrush — in other words, it was neither a caterpillar, a truck, nor a farm tractor or tank — but it did know all the answers and could pinch-hit in an emergencv for any of these vehicles, and the bovs in the National Guard called it a ' Jeep ' for that reason because it had no name, nor could it be definitely classified with other Army vehicles. Since the original Jeep, pictured at right " climb- ing a tree " in maneuvers at Camp Ripley, Minne- apolis-Moline in cooperation with our Armed Forces has developed the up-to-date 4-wheel model at right and the big 6 wheeler pictured above, and both these models are now being produced bv MM for the Armed Forces of the United Nations.

Long before Pearl Harbor, with the performance specifications of the ideal trainer laid before them, Fairchild engineers conceived the now famous PT-19 primary trainer. It has so brilliantlv performed its function of helping get pilots ready for combat that it is being used ever more widely in the training programs of the United Nations. The Fairchild AT-21 twin-engined guiinerv crew trainer has the same Fairchild " touch of tomorrow " as the PT-19. The engineering of this all-Duramold plastic-plywood ship was inspired by a determination to make the gap between the training and the tactical plane seem insignificantly small. These two trainers are powered by the Fairchild Ranger Aircraft Engine — air-cooled, in-line, inverted. Its reliability, efficiency and ease of maintenance put it at the top of its power class. It plays no small part in those engineerin g achievements of Fairchild di- rected specifically toward the best possible training of the finest air force in the world.

Features of the new ISO-ton Straightening Press shown here are typical. Your operator obtains exact pressure needed for each different operation without setting stroke or pressure limits. . . by merely watching the gauge. (Limits can be set il desired.) A single lever gives him full control of both power and movement of the ram at every stage of operation! When the control lever is released, the ram returns immediately to full daylight opening (or to pre-set upper stroke limit) — and there ' s no " drift. " Like all Denison Presses, the DLSC2-150 is compact and fully self-contained, with rounded corners and ample toe-space for maximum safety. Available with either hand-lever or footpedal control, or both. Working pressures range from 15 to 150 tons. Other models in the DLSC2 series offer maximum capacities of 25, 50, and 100 tons.

VICTORY The Jay Garment Company PORTLAND, INDIANA LXXX THERE is a big, open, well-lighted factory spreading its acres out on the flatlands of a Middle Western state. There ' s a long assembly line where Huick- built Pratt Whitney engines grow, test cells where they get an hours-long going- over under pow er, another line where they are torn down, inspected, put back together —and back of all, huge factories in Flint where countless parts take shape. And there ' s a sobering thought that rides with every part through every process, with every engine down the line, with every packing case that carries a finished engine off for installation in a plane. That thought is this: Some day somewhere an American flying crew will bank their very lives on the way we build that engine. They will stake everything on it, and on the perfect functioning of every one of its thousands of parts. through overcast and ack-ack fire, to hold them steady through the bombing run, to help them wheel and dodge in combat with enemy fighters— to carry them home again, safe and sound and able for more. Maybe your boy will be in that crew. Maybe ours will. .Ma be someone who once proudly called himself a Buick man — there are more than 3,000 such now wearing the uniform.
