The Academic Board sees that his diploma means as much as that trom anv civilian college. Not only is the program of studies planned by the Hoard, but this group sets up the tests taken by applicants before they ever arrive ;it the Point, and elimin.itcs ,ill c.idets who cannot show proficiency while here. From the end of Beast Barracks to his own June Week, the cadet feels the inllueiice of the Academic Board daily. It governs his work in the sections, keeps him in his room at night, contrt)ls the length ot his CoL. B. RTLETT ADEMIC BOARD Not only is licanis before k here. From JciiiicBoarJ leaves, and takes his week-ends away from him if he isn ' t up to standard. Besides controlling the work of the Academic Departments, the Board is alert to changes in the Army, at the Academy, and in the educational world. Even now, from its room in the Administration Building, the Board is guiding the complete return to a four year course. The new program split the original Class of 1947, but does not affect those men still graduating in three years, except to show them with what flexibility the H( can make changes while continuing to train future officers. ,, Banff I Lt.

' I ' earling cheiii and First Class juice showed some siniilarities hectic sessions at the boards, surprise poop writs, and lah periods when either a test tube or a circuit breaker constantly threatened to blow up in our faces. But the willingness of the Academic Board to change the system of things, if a better way is devised, was displayed when Electricits received its autonomy. The new department, continuing to give the three-year class the course taught to the cadets for the past few years, redesigned the syllabus for the first four-year group. But the objective governing the old course to give understanding in a field important in a technical curriculum — has not been altered.

OVERNMENT ND HISTORY Tlic principles of war are very simj- lc coiHcntration, mass, mobil- ity, and a few other key words that tell the story. But the Military History course showed us how few men have mastered them; many Inst Classmen struggling through Napoleon ' s campaigns and the battles of the Civil War thought their simplicitv was hidden in some prett ' complicated depths. Military Bridges, a technical course, taught us the mechanics for crossing a river, where history had taught the strategy. The theoretical and the practical, always being combined at the i ' oint, were thus both well handled by the Militar)- Art and Engineering ncpartnieiit. i 1st Ron. Cpt. Donaldson, Lt.

As our training at the Academy nears its end, various phases merge into retrospect; all parts begin to form a united whole. Within this composite structure arc experiences, like those in English class, which will be remembered longer than the rest. As plebes we built from the ground up: grammar, punctuation, words, sentences, para- graphs and hnall}-, those ne ' er-to-be-forgotten themes. Major prob- lems in completed form they were a source of satisfaction. So it was with public speaking hard work for most of us, but invaluahle preparation (or the future. This year ' s Military Instructor Training brought home to us the importance of lucid self-expression, and made us grateful for groundwork iilanned so thoroughly. Rou. Ma|. Mulford. Lt. Col. Moore.

Specialized medical, engineering, or quartermaster outlits give him technical aid and su|-.plies, hut they leave the real [ob, the headaches and the credit, up to him. Ollicers of the Medical Detachment took time out from their duties at the hospital to explain and expand this theme; the course was First Class Military Hygiene. In a month of lectures and training films, army sanitation, food and water safeguards, protection against disease, and the all-important development of proper personal habits in individual soldiers were explained and discussed. The end of the course found the First Classmen a little more conscious of still another phase of the manv responsibilities soon to be given them. . Kou: Lt. Col, Rav, Lt. Col. Uvings, Col. West, Col.

However, |unior officers very often do legal work and take part in courts martial, and the Law Department was as- signed to close the gap of our ignorance. It took time, also, to help us with any personal legal problems we ran into. Elementary law and the Articles of War sometimes left us dazed, but recent graduates told us that West Pointers are often the only officers with legal training to be ftjund in a unit especially in the occupied territories where we might siKMi (ind ourselves. These grads gave us a little legal advice: " Save every book, every poop- sheet, every pamphlet! Spec everything! " In Row: Maj. Omans, Cape. Bart, Col. Calver, Col. Jones, Lt. Ci Dick, Lt. Col.

From the day he first rcsp()iii.ls to the immortal battlccry of " Take boards! " to the day he s raduates, a cadet at West Point makes constant use of the prmciples he learns at the capable hands of the Mathematics Department. To the cadet, no portion of his academic instruction is more important. During his Fourth C lass year he wades through algebra, solid geometry, analytical geometry, and trigonometry. Barely able to distinguish an ellipse from a hyperbola, he is plunged into his Third Class course of differential and integral calculus and statistics. Emerging from this battle with sines, cosines, derivatives, integrals, and their assorted brethren, he possesses a sound mathematical foundation on which tt) base his scientific education. Although formal instruction in .Mathematics finishes with his Third Class year, he continues to use his prowess through- out his courses in physics, chemistry, mechanics and ordnance, for if he forgets his math in an - of them, he ' s lost!

" We drew string polygons all over the ceilings, floors and adjacent boards. Yet this stormiest of sub|ects had its advantages. It gave us a taste of mechanical theorv, practical material to use after graduation, and, after a year and a half of feverish board fights, a big, healthy respect for Isaac Newton. hi Row: Lt.

Ri id censt)rship forbuK the quotation of any dialogue here. The P ' s up in their haven among the clouds, were busy little men, having taught us surveying, map reading, stereoscopic mapping, use of the compass, mechanical drawing, how to go blind in two short hours, plus other vital subjects. Though our perspective does not permit us to realize now the worth of that instruction, it is certain that we will lind it useful later in our . rniy careers. Oistincrly, the M. T. .• . G. Department affected trained, mnids to deal with the more fundamental prob- ms in graphics, map reading, and map making that we are ikcly to encounter in our years as junior officers. 1st Row: Li.

MILITARY TOPOGRAPHY AND GRAPHICS The Modern Languages Department we are in its enfolding arms two ears. ' er ' versatile, it instructs cadets in French, German, i ' ortuguese, Spanish, and Russian, and the instruction is quite interesting. Witness the hzughter that can be heard from outside the rooms from the romance hinguage groups. Ah, those Latins! But back to the subject; we do learn something. For example, we can haze Plcbes in our ap- pointed language, learning from personal ex- perience whenever we tied it up. To give honest credit to the Department, cadets received from it a sound foundation which will enable them to learn their language well if they so desire, and to converse understandably in it.

A ' I Modern ' N G u A G E s First Class year saw a mark-cd increase in sub|c(.ts rehired directly to the |i)h of hein an Arniv Olhcer. One such subject was Ordnance. The department tried to supply us with certain infornuition that will help the soldier understand the tools of " his trade. Explosives, gun mechanisms, and principles of various weapons were the subjects with which the Ordnance instructors dealt, and their course was one of the more practical, immediately useful, and immediately .necessary that we were given. The course did a good job in helping thoroughly to round out our training, and it will not be lon after graduation before we shall have direct use for the Ordnance Department ' s teachings. ORDNANCE u The object of the courses given by this department is well-stateJ in the pamphlet introJucing its Third Class physics course " . . . to s urvey and integrate the important generalizations of physical science, to provide a background for future specialization, to enhance your cultural education, and to develop the scientific attitude and instill the scientific method. " In its own field, the object of the chem course is the same, and sometimes it is even difficult to say that some of the material given in one course could not be fit naturally into the other. Success in reaching the objective was also common to both courses. : H E M I S T R Y AND PHYSICS lit Row.- Lt. Col. Gildart, Lt. Col. Symroski, Col. York, Col, Tucker, Lt. Col. Shive, Lt. Col.

I a: Inl Placed in the ditficult position of both " building our character " and teachinc; us the essentials of modern warfare at the same time, members of this department be- wildered and astonished us. And thcv ac- complished both missions. From squad maneuvers to lectures on the maze of Army organization, the tacs have been tireless in their efforts to etjuip us for an Arm - career. No detail was too small, yet always we were kept in sight of the big picture. .Much of their instruction represented actual battle experience; and it was con- stantl) ' changed to meet new needs. Even the class of ' 46 had already sent in sugges- tions — some to be adopted. Unable to learn first-hand, we appreciated fully this ma- terial that no field manual could |irovide. l,t Row: Lt. Col.

Plchc gym, yogi, obstacle courses, physical erticiency tests, unarmed combat, and in- tramural athletics were the tortuous de- vices by which the Master of the Sword soLight :o make " every man an athlete. " The Psychology Department, on the other hand, took as its motto: " Leaders are made, not born. " And we were the willing guinea-pigs for the new leadership course — a study of controlling men ' s thoughts personal drives, so that we might better lead them. And )ust as we shall re- member Mr. Kress showing us " how easy It is " by doing it with one hand, we shall remember how easy it is to examine one- self and one ' s soldiers— better to be able to control effective action. Detachments of various branches and organization ' s of the army arc stationed at West Ponit to help in teaching cadets the practical side of being a soldier. Representative is the Infantry Detachment, con- ducting a great deal of instruction and aiding when special infantr - material is given in any course. For example, distinct infantry terri- torv is the Plebe course in the functioning and assembly of small arms. However, a course on sighting and aiming devices ct)vers equipment of a number of branches, so there the infantry teaches soIcK about Its own instruments. This is the often -re pea ted wa ' in which the work of all detachments falls -.luo the big tactics picture. P ill •■•:■?

The needs of the last war resulted in a new branch which is just now reaching full independence. The bewildering, gigantic problems of logistics and supply created by our far-scattered armies made the new Transportation Corps a necessity. The young outfit already has its traditions, and an ' of its members can talk about huge convoys in the Pacitic, or the Red Hall Express in France. West Point ' s newest detachment was formed to handle some of our own transportation problems and most important to give cadets an idea i)f how the T.C., works. Our class was only briefly oriented in the new branch, but classes after us will get much more thorough instruction. The driving instruction given to cadets is now in the hands of the T.C. too. Almost before its official birth, the new service has established itself at the Academy, ready to teach future classes, both in the classroom and in the held, how to keep ' em rolling. Slated: Ma|. Scnian, Col. tvli Crutchlev. Continued progress cannot help but cause changes in the set-up of the detachments. Take artillery for instance. Where the ( " oast Artillerv and Field Artillcr ' Detachnieius ran separate courses, a new organization now exists; a single Artillery Oetachnient is taking over. More co-ordination in teaching will he possible. Subjects common to coast, anti-aircr.itt, an l lield artiller - will no longer need to he partl - repeated. Oliicers taken from both branches can plan more thorough and broad instruction, and use of rime will he more economical than it was in the previous courses. New material on guided missiles, radar, and television will he introducei.1 too. Thus, the best elements of the two old detachments will be combined to train our future graduates. w but I n umr ull- Isr Rou: Col. Stayton (Com- manding Officer, C. A.), M. Sgt. Stocks, IstSgt.

RTILLERY DETACHMENT CAVALRY DETACHMENT The Cavalry has been almost completely mechanized during the past few years; but the horses down at the Riding Hall and the Cavalry Plain never knew it. Third and First Chissnicn .trotted, posted, galloped, and were steadily policed while they tried to learn to travel without a steering wheel in their hands. It was the job of the Cavalry Detachment to tend .ind train those horses and to teach us how to ride them. While some cadet swore never to get on anything more alive than a bicycle again, many of us are still thankful to the Cavalrv for an en|oyable skill that most were strangers to before our arrival at the Academy. .« rf Lt.Col.

The Armored Force men patiently tried to prevent us from wreck- ing their vehicles, and repaired the ones we put out of action. The instructiiin we were given while roaring wildly over the countryside supplemented other Armored Force training given during the vear, and constituted orientation in that particular arm.

PiiUr If Napoleon had had two walkie-talkies at Waterloo, he might have avoided defeat and thereby changed a good portion of the world ' s history. Communications- enabling a commander and his sub- ordinates to have complete knowledge of the situation- -is often the eciding factor in a closely contested battle. Keeping us informed about the enormous quantity of Signal Corps equipment our army uses was quite a |ob. The Signal Corps Detachment, however, really came through in their Communications lectures, and we spcced — went pro. « ■ ■ ■ " Learn auto maintenance. What makes your car or truck tick? What can you do about it? Expert instructors at the sign of the flaming bomb. " The Ordnance Detachment could very well have advertised Its course that way. The automotive instruction was the only ma)or course given us in the lab below Trophy Point, but cut-awav motors and rotating auto bodies always kept us interested, while able mechanics, with lots of valuable poop- joined by roaring engines that defied anyone to time them- kept us busy. We ' ll have no ex- cuse, thanks to Ordnance, if we ever strip a gear or even so much as get a flat tire again.

" Nobody m ' 47 will forget that Baltimore campaign. No t)ne will forget, either, that the band was with us, playing all the way. The band was always around! It played at every football game, met us coming home from our long hikes, and even played " Deep in the Heart of Texas " during those pass-out inspections during Beast Barracks. It played at the hops and gave summer concerts on the Plain. We ' ll think of our band long after it marches by at Graduation Parade.

I 1946 the forces of South Area, under orders from a higher command, picked up their s ear and retreated norflnvaril, with constant harassing and pursuit h - the Tactical ne|-iartment. Witli ranks decimated by i raduation, foundation, and Corps reort;anizatit)n, a ragged crew rallied about the tallest object in Central Area. They thought it was the clock tower, actually it was Have Odell, leader of the mob called B-1 Com- pany. Re|iresenting forty-one states, three religions, and all orders of in- telligence, the men got along together excellently. They anxiously awaited the arrival of the liaison representative of the Department of Tactics. Was B-1 to be " His Majesty ' s Loyal Opposition " or work with the powers? The steel-heels made a wise choice L. E. S niroski, Lt. Col., A. C, and the squarcst guy living in the eighteenth division. They shined their shoes, shined their brass, they wept and cried, but they stuck to it, some for three, some for four, a few for five years. They never did beat the Tactical Depart- ment, but being their prisoners, caused so much trouble that they were re- leased on a yearly basis. Thirteen left in 1947, hoping that the remaining seventy-seven would renew the battle of survival against the tribulations of West Point. Ehrlich, Kastris. 4th Row: Hirschfield, Jacoby.

We came from all directions and from all types of " PCS, " but before long the cry of " Pop your chest up, Doo-guard! " became all too familiar to all of us. Plebe year had its moments: the first " Fallout " at Pine Camp, the Navy game trip which climaxed that first terrific undefeated foot- ball season, but the moments were a little too widely spaced, and all of us were quick to join in the cheer which greeted our first goal — Recognition! After an all too brief first trip home, we returned to assume the " hard, but fair " duties of the upperclass. Popolopen left each of us a group of very special, personal memories. Then came Pine Camp again, and with it the news of V-J! " If the nation reconverts, so shall West Point! " and before long we found ourselves requiring a new estimate of a new situation. " Three years or four? " Said estimates having been made, our class was divided, and it was at Stewart Field that we the Class of ' 47 found ourselves as a unit for the first time. September brought the new Corps Organization, and from four of the old lettered companies, men were selected to form the new E-1.

Si)me of us were old friends bound by former experiences and association. Vet a man r )ob faced us m making new friends and merging our individual groups. Soon a spirit of h)yalty and fellowship developed which we shall eherish long after graduation and the gray walls are behind us. Through th- year this feeling grew, cry.stallizing in the spring with coming separation of fond friends. There were many activities and incidents which so typically picture our working and playing together that they immediately come to mind whenever we reminisce on cadet days. We all remember the Sunday night entertainment in the Mess Hall which even brought a smile to the faces in the mural. Who can forget Major D. and his enthusiastic interest and backing of all our activities? His presence at intermurder seemed almost to make him an active participant. Those picnics in the spring and the inevitable discussions on the stoops after supper with their pleasant companionship cheered us through the year. These are the things that form the bond be- tween us, and wherever we are we shall feel these ties which our association has created. inlRtw: Newcomb, Gregorie, Dunham. -1 COMPANY ij Xsw.- Stewart, Hollander, Bushnell, Force, Bleiman, Perrv, O ' Connell, Montague, Kremser, Dunham, Ne%vcomb.

Everyone was put into a new company b y height, hut there were some runts in G-1 who were too big and some flankers in D-1 who were too small, plus a number of misfits in the com- panies between. They solved the problem very neatly by putting the whole mess together and supplying it with its own guidon reading " I-l. " From this ignoble start I-l developed quickly into what we, its first graduates, know to be the best company in the Corps. Modestly, we blame our success on our personnel; one each chubby regimental commander, a cietestably hivey regimental supply officer, a slightly used fighter pilot, an effervescent cheerleader, a refugee from Alaska, a near-sighted honor rep, a bruised and beaten " B " squad quarterback, a fugitive from Aqueduct, an Oregon tree- chopper, a bench-warming first baseman, a misplaced Navy Junior, an embryo Edison from East Rutherford, a bottom heavy wrestler from Altoona, and one almost unknown half-back from Claremont, California, who plays a little basketball and baseball, too. Add to this a bunch of bitter Cows, cover with some frisky Yearlings, and sprinkle with B-J Plebes and you have I-Co — not the eagerest company in the Corps, but surely the happiest. GuicE.J. T.

How, you may ask, can a mere company have such a leveling elFect? Weil, we ' ll answer it this way. We sweated out its birth together, we were all there at the christening, we nursed it through its infancy, wc lived with it. In other words, wc were all godfathers of the same baby known as K-1. That was what the Corps reorganization did m us. New friendships arose with the birth of K Co, old friendships found new meanings and were strengthened. Although we are leaving our godchild in its infancy, we know we are leaving its youth in thc guidance of capable hands. And behind these guiding hands we leave a host of traditions that have proven their worthiness — the spirit and pride in the company that have made it such a cohesive unit — the will tt) win and the resulting fighting, victorious intramural teams — impartial treatment of Plcbes and the Plebc Christmas party — the use of praise and reprimand instead of the Form One. Yes, we are leaving many things behind, but we ' re taking many more with us. We will always have and cherish the memories of our cadet life, how we lived it and with whom we lived it— in K Co.

M, ( -AYBE THE FEMMES who ciitcr and leave Grant Hall so often each Saturday don ' t know it, but a new set of faces is peering down at them from the walls of South Area. Hardy M-1, down where the long line stiffens and straightens, and maybe shortens just a bit, has moved into a new location and as the radiator-climbing wolves testify it is a point of vantage. The most noticeable in M Company is in its relation to the T. D. Colonel Graham has won universal respect as a capable and wholly fair- minded officer; he has successfully overcome that seemingly instinctive tendency among cadets to work at cross-purposes with the T. D. for the en- tire stay at the Academy. We runts, while still always solidly on the ball, have foregone the traditional runt eagerness this year — yes, it ' s really true. That does not mean that they have assumed the fabulous indifference of flanker companies of other days; far from it. Some arc addicted to the sack, and the bathrobe variety of stars still predominates over the collar style, but history must record that M Company was breathing down the neck of the winner of the drill streamer, and the cellar is no longer the habitat of its intcrnuirder teams.

With familiar cadet officers and an intense spirit of cooperation, wc maintained the company spirit at a high level throughout the year. The unusually small First Class, charged with thc full responsibility of command, ran the company in a manner appreciated by all classes. On the intramural fields, though our teams were not the most vic- torious, they were by far the most aggressive — this the flanker teams will verify. They called us " ' eager runts " in grudging admiration of our " putting out, " but we know that the added drive of our teams more than made up for our deficiency in height and placed us on an equal basis with taller companies of the regiment. Further, we distinguished ourselves by winning second place in the fall drill competition. More important to us, however, are those memories of this year which make A-2 more than simply a company designa- tion. Moving across the area, becoming accustomed to the 4-year system, going to company meetings in the sinks of the 20th, and making football trips — all these memories live as pleasant reminders of a memorable com- pany in a memorable year.

IS NOT AS EASY as wc had thought to leave these old grey walls and the company that we had formed from its very beginning from four of the best companies in the Corps. It was our first chance to show leadership, and, being lucky enough to have the best tactical officer in the Corps, we were given a free hand in setting up a company policy and running D-2 as we believed a company should be run. Uncle Bob " went along with us in every respect, and his help, coupled with a spirit of cooperation, enabled us to put the Form-1 aside and run our company by correction; a far-cry from the " hard-but-fair " tactics some had witnessed under well-known Tac-cerrors of the past. We were given the privileges of the first postwar class, but with these privileges came the numerous added responsibilities. As we leave West Point, we are carrying with us lessons of leadership set forth by our tactical officer together with those we have learned ourselves.

Every man in E-2 contributed his intluencc in developing the traditions to start this unit " on the road " to being a member of the Cadet Brigade. Men of all classes had a varied list of interests and many men were on corps squad, riding, chess, and other interests too numerous to mention. Realizing that cooperation is of primary importance, the First Class de- veloped a spirit in the company which will live and stick with E-2 as long as there are men to carry on with the " something " that distinguishes one unit from the other. All was not serious and on duty status, but off duty all men gathered together to have the recreation and clean fun that makes life at West Point enjoyable. The men of E-2 graduating into the Army realize the importance of dut ' , honor, and service to country and this increment o fourteen officers will uphold the high traditions of the Corps and the Regula Army. Their leadership has left a personality in the Corps called " Easy- Two " and their guidance, decisions, and sincere interest in feeling the respect which is due to others will carry them through in the Army. ■ Lammatine, Gaushe, Lukens, Heisser. 2nd Row: Delistraty, Fernandez, Kennedy, Tucker, , 3rd Row: Hering, Salisbury, Lange, Jacobson, McNeil. ' w IN F-2 have seen many changes during our three year stay within these grey walls. We entered the Academy as one of the largest war time classes hut find ourselves graduating as one of the smaller peace time classes. We have seen our classmates leave us to become the Second Class with the return of the four year course. From the day that we entered until graduation we have been faced with problems of all magnitudes. No doubt the biggest of them has been our job as First Classmen with the responsibility of leading the new Company F-2. Here in F-2 we find among the First Class the familiar faces which we saw as Plehes and Yearlings in old n, E, and F companies. Out of the cold precision of a machine record ' s unit c.imc the tirganization of our company, in our estimation, the best. Perhaps we bounced too much at i.lrill and maybe we lost an intermurder game, but we always tried our hardest. As a company we have had little time to create a distinct and separate pattern, but we feel that the groundwork has been laid for future years. To the underclasses we leave the task which we have begun knowing that it will be carried to a successful completion. On return visits to the Academy, may we liiul in F-2 the traditions of which it is worthy. . Anherson, M. W. -2 COMPANY ' " A " " ' ' ' ' " ' ■ ' " • ' " " ' ' - ' ' .

The rat-races and spring songfests, the traditional M Co cheer by our First Class at Graduation Parade, the hallowed silence in the mess hall when the company wins a first line, and the famed Easter egg hunt for Plebes combine to give us a picturesque heritage. The greatest factor in moulding characters in M Co is the attitude of friendship which exists in this company of men who would not trade places with anyone else in the Corps. This spirit has enabled us to accomplish our work and still enjoy life as much as possible. Our football team, the rains at Pine Camp, the Baltimore Campaign, Popolo, Stupid Field, and both beast barracks have filled us with many stories. Just recently, though, we have been broken up by the division of the class as well as the new Corps organization. It is hard to split a class, but even harder to separate men who have lived together for two years. We were sad to leave old H-2 and our home in the " forgotten fifties, " but wc know that wherever a member of H-2 wandered, there also went a bit of our flanker spirit to temper cadet life.

His mellow tenor voice has been a great asset to the Glee Club. A true connoisseur of fine liquors from Vermont, Wally is a good mixer, a true wife, and a devoted friend. Despite his not being a hive or a four-letter man, no task, however difficult it may have been, has ever depressed his high spirits. His forcefulness and his never-say-die attitude will lead Wally to the top. Wally Senatorial, Vermont, Sen. George D.

Al- ways ready to participate in extracurricular activities, his chief forte was tennis and he proved to be one of the foremost players at the Academy.

His unflagging good humor- a real blessing between first and second hour classes gained him his many friends throughout the Corps, and, incidentally, saw Bill through more than one unequal struggle with the T.D.

His almost fanatical aversion to being dominated did not keep him from taking keen pride in developing an efficient and business like manner of managing his affairs.

Whence we had come was unimportant; that we had come, paramount. Walking toward the Academic Building from the Thayer Hotel, the railroad station, or the bus stop, we marveled at the majesty of the ivy-covered buildings, thrilled with the thoughts of West Point ' s traditions, and were profoundly grateful that soon we were to become a part of this institution. Nervously apprehensive, " Candidates Report Here " brought us out of our reverie. Turning in money, signing papers, getting a iast-minute physical check-up, and answering questions brought us down to earth. Out to the area, the bandsman, and our provisional comiiany. In .1 m.itter of seconds the Detail had buried us in the depths of Beast Barracks. o, UR I iRsr MILITARY DUTY 111 Bcast Barracks kcvnotcd the next six weeks ' training: we reported — and reported — and reported- to the first sergeant until we did so perfectl - and in a military manner. This first day was the fastest 24 hours we had ever spent, never did so many do so much in so little time. Orienta- tion in barracks, a four minute haircut, drawing equipment at the Cadet Store, and learning the details of how a West Pointer ' s room should Kiok were conducted on the double- on the same double at which we constantly moved. Most of us were in cadet uniform bv our first taps. We hit the sack with one thought in mind: What am I doing here? Our first night was the fastest we had ever spent; reveille followed taps like assembly followed first call. One down— 337 to go. rtvO ' 3PP ' ' to T, ■TAIL were the niDsc military men vvc had ever seen. Our rooms and equipment were scrutinized constantly, critical eyes dogged our every move, perfection was our byword, 4anual of arms, close order drill, riile marksmanship, bayonet drill, and athletics followed one another in kaleid(5scopic fashion. The Mess Hall was just another place of instruction salt tablets, one glass of iced tea, and " the days. " Our posture underwent con- tinuous correction, when we fijrgot, others remembered. Taps was reveille for shining shoes and brass; demerit sheets filled the bulletin boards— we had lots to learn.

We never escaped the critical eye of the upperclassmen, mul- titudinous was the correction. After long parades and scathing S.I. ' s we cheered the football team on to new victories.

With our new-found freedom came responsibility, an obhga- tion we began to feel toward our Academy. We realized this on furlough when we looked upon West Point in retrospect. Deciding the Point wasn ' t such a bad place after all, we set out to spend the best three weeks imaginable. Each day was a furlough in itself. There were parties and proies and a year ' s weekends rolled into twenty hilarious days. We returned with a million memories in the back of our minds. Our full held parade for General Eisenhower was a nightmare for our wheels, an interesting experience for the rest of us.

We learned the intricacies oMiring from tanks, and drove them at I ' roctor estate. A sinuilated graveyard claimed st)me of us in hoobv-trap disposal. We slaughtered each other on hill tops in rccon problems cops ' n robbers with armored cars and [eeps. With the engineers we built bridges and were indoctrinated in landing craft.

The four year course- we were divided in numbers, but not in spirit and thought. It was a bitter pill; we swallowed twice, and pro- ceeded with the job at hand. We had (gotten acquainted with many of our classmates over sodas at the boodlers, and had broadened a few horizons with trips to the Library. Corps Squads and extra-curricular activities had claimed some of our time, and we had developed new interests. Looking back, it had been a happy year. „,HtO.I0«ON .. ,c of ev ' ry »« OiR, there are three hundred and sixty five days until June nineteen forty-seven. These were welcome words and we didn ' t have to be told twice. We had been boning it for a long time and now we were on the road. Our two stripes made us feel a lot different than the one as a yearling had, because they carried the weight of leadership a lot more and had a greater value in time spent preparing for our careers. We found that people worked with and for us instead of against us and it was a new and inspiring angle. We had the runn ing of the Corps to do and our ]oh was to lead it through the next year and yet make sure it was a leading and not a driving process. We took the responsibilities and the way we worked is shown in this section. Ao e " « Airborne Training The class of Forty Six had just barely cleared their final hurdle when we began our first class tactical training in earnest. Two days after graduation we went to Stewart Field to see what the airborne forces ct)uld do. We were introduced to the various types of equipment and airplanes used and also the many requirements made on an airborne trooper. Wc returned to the Point at night tired but very glad to have been in on the whole sht)w. The ■rc r yr f V " 9 09° ' 6ota first day wc were shown the various ways to hit the ground from a chute drop and were finally convinced that there were more ways than one in which to do this. Then the various types of chute packs and a dry run out of a mock-up of a C-78 fuselage. We hung from the harness rack and learned how to turn in the air and how to land in the water sans harness. Next we nosed around on the apron and found that all the funny ships there did not have engines and that a large part of the airborne troops are transported by motorless morons or glider guiders. We saw the old workhorse, the CG-4, and her newer sisters. We voiced disbelief at the claims of the carrying . :?? c ' roUoOP ' po » " 9 M IHB 2 ?R. ,«.»ip " «;l capacity of these fragile craft, so they were opened up and out came all that they claimed could he carried. Then we stopped listening and were given a demonstration and a lot of us discovered that even without motors the gliders could make one airsick. It was a thrill to feel the tow dropped and he sitting on plywood and canvas at three thousand feet. Later we took a trip in the transports and saw the troopers stand in the door and then -out they went. The climax was a demonstration attack on an airfield and it was by far the best of the show. We all finished the course with a lot more knowledge and a healthy respect for the Airborne trooper. r-)f»onno(N Stewart Field Fresh from furlo wc arrived back at West Point weary, weal , and wan but willing. It was several Jays before we could level our bubbles, but all went well. We packed our coveralls and pint erp cups and off we went for Stewart Field — the Mecca for would-be hot pilots. There we quickly established ourselves in the barracks and went out to survey the layout. We were oriented and equipped at once, and no time was lost in starting us out in the course. We had a lot of free time and were able to recover in it from furlo and also the various degrees of airsickness which we acquired. We started out in bomber orientation squadrons and were soon flying all over trying to figure the whole thing out. We tlew navigation missions and ended up on a bombing run out over the coast. We almost ..TIS?. ' IW sank the police boat which was j, ' iiarJing tlic range limits anil were very elated with the near misses on it. Then came the trip to Repub- lic and the United Aircraft plants and the night hop back over New York City. We saw how the big Town looked at night when you were high above it in a plane. Then into AT-6 ' s and fighter training. Here wc found our old pal airsickness though he had been with us in the bombers also. This was a good deal and the final ratrace down the slide from thirteen thousand feet to the deck was a never-to-be- ; ; ; ifa« s :,.- ..fllrTVi , , Gro nd u . 1 1 -.. ' x y forgotten thrill for us and an ordeal for others. Then on to the playful PT-17 ' s and our exploits as airplane jockies. That old ad age that anyone can ll - may be true, hut the sense of the word had to be stretched for some of us. Wc learned to fly straight and level, bank, loop, and perform maneuvers which were called hy various names but which were not recognizable as the ones that we were doing. We tried to take the ships apart but to no avail. We learned a lot about flying and did pretty well in it, but when the time came 1 %I - ti) land wc all were pretty well confused. We had been told that a PT will land itself and came to the conclusion that it could and that all a cadet in the seat does is to confuse the ijrenilins. All of this tune we were .uoini, ' through a sjx-cial form of torture known as ground school and foiuid out that a lot of what happens m the air can he ht ured t)ut on the ijround with a slij stick and a fudge factor. We all were sorry to see this phase end, but we came back from flv- town with a knowledge that will serve us as long as they lly them things. th o °v II I m ' V 1 - Bock SteVJO " Instructor Tniinino; (7 Here wc were hack at home- ready to take over the intommg plebcs and try our hand at command. But first wc must be trained in the work and in the suh|ects we were to instruct. We learned the ground rules and that every- thing had to he letter perfect and not lust passable. We were later to thank the olficers who instructed us for their work as it saved much embarrassment and confusion. We had the time for Oelalield too, but a lot was spent in study for we were aware of our responsibili- ties and determined to discharge them eliicicntly. This was a very important phase and led directlv to ik-ast Barracks which never forget. sVip f P.k ' V ' - ' ( , l 6 vri: ■t_ i:- " Co " " ■■: ' | Ui? T " A tu W P ' Spe ' -sV " " y ov rf Beast Barracks This is it, our last year ' s main mission of bringin i in the new class and chanijing them from average men into cadets in six easy weeks. Here was a chance to command and see the results. Within the ct)mpanies we ranted and raved at our gross doolies, but among ourselves we praised our squads, platoons, and companies to the skies. In the held we imparted instruction in large doses with an eye on questions to make sure It was soaking in or as in the case of bayonet and combat drill soaking out. At the end of it all came the plebe hike and a lot of valuable march experience as well as camping and guard duty in the field. Cons o ' ' il Camp Buckner From the plehes in beast barracks some of us went to Camp Buckner and relaxed and sunbathed. Of course we refereed and trained yearlings also, but we did get time to ourselves to rest from the rigors of Stewart Field and Beast Barracks. We ran small unit problems and decided who had killed , -.■r ' -— v at " who in the daily battles of the squads. Again we had to know our onions but we had been so thort)ughly schooled in this that it was almost second nature to us. At the end of our tour here on the sunny banks of Popolopen we were referees in the attacks by the yearlings against the plebes on their hike and in their camps. No casualties. ••r«?»; joi io " ' First Class Fall X)ack FROM THE plebe hike, Stewart Field, Gimp Buckner, and such phices as we had journeyed to in the course of our summer ' s instruction, came the class ready to try their hands at a year of leading the Corps. Tired but willing, we hit the old rooms and started down for the year ' s work. A visit by Marshall Montgomery and then the President added interest and livened things up a bit. We were proud of our football team as they blazed their way onward for the third undefeated season in a row. Misters Inside, Outside, and Topside, as well as the rest of the Big Rabble were in there giving us their best at every game. The Michigan trip was quite a trip fcfe V So o«« j ode and not a man of us could speak in normal tones for some time after the game. We bet our b-robcs with the Navy, and now all have two b-robes, though one of them is un- authorized. And then we watched the greatest of Big Rabbles bow out in triumph. Doc and Junior will be with us forever. We had a big thrill as our soccer Rabble took over the Navy also and ended an excellent season. Weekend leaves and trips to the big city livened up our time during the fall. The hops and things we did here at the Pouit during the weekends we were here seemed :- " - extra nice. It was perhaps because it was so close to the end or niayhe because they were mixed with the trips into New York, but whatever it was, it helped. Academics weren ' t as eas y as we had been led to believe, but we were driving down the home stretch, and it wasn ' t as hard to sit down and hit the books as it had been. Our tactics were of a nature such that we would be able to use them as soon as we got out. We passed through fall j-iretty quickly and on into winter. Just before Xmas we got our rings and were welcomed as coming of age. " • Wf " ' P ' ,ddv Vof " ° WM i - M»i M 1 ' wjm f ' 1 V V eeV«t ' ■ i S 1 1 1 Ring Weekend Towards the end of the fall we at last came to the tune when, according to the Long Grey Line, we came of age. Just before Navy game weekend we were given our rings amid many cries of " Whatta crass mass of glass and brass, " from members of the fourth estate. It was quite a gala event and we all felt as if we had been let in on a new society which we had seen, but as yet had not been accepted. We realized that our stay here was about over and that before too long we would be out in the army and expected to maintain the standards of those who have -v - mm . worn the rings before. At the ceremony in the afternoon we ail aJniired each other ' s rings and secretly told ourselves that ours was the best looking. Then on to the hop and a great many of us were dragging the femme who also wore the ring of our class and who shared and would continue to share the life of a Pointer whether he was a cadet or an oliiccr. General Taylor ' s speech went a long way and none of us will forget it, for it bridged the gap and made us feel that we all now had a share in a well beloved and treasured heritage. The weekend passed as weekends have a way of doing, but it will be long remembered and enioyed. First Chiss Wintc JL ooTDALL SLASON aiiJ fiiig wcck ' cnJ hchind us, wc started out on our first class wmtcr. Just before Xinas there was the usual Hurry as we goats put up that last fight for tenths in the linal writs. We weathered them all right and ofFwc went on Xmas leave. ' Twas a jolly season, and a good tinie was had by all, but when we arrived back here on New Year ' s day we all were on our last legs and about to go down for the count. The winter sports did a lot to buck us up, and a fine series of programs by the Special Program Committee made the gloom back oil a bit. It was a mild winter until one day out of the northern wastes swept c]uite a storm and all our snowbirds and skiers were happy while we rebels sat around radiators ttl tli ' i:. iioa V4 te AoP with pictures of the Sunny South sittm i; with us. We had an informal hop which had a ski theme, but there was no snow. The next day it snowed and covered the whole place. Typical, wasn ' t it? Weekends came and went, and they meant a lot in breaking up the monotony. Yet the time went rapidly. Buying uniforms and equipment made June seem very close, and we began to realize that we were at last approaching the end. We began to think seriously about our branch choice and wish that we had more files so we would be sure to get what we wanted. Tactics had become much more important and we all seemed to get a lot more out of it than before. Our lectures at night fttV 6 o d»« ' seemed to attract a lot of officers, so we knew they were important. Then with lirst class pnvilet es wc at last tclt the responsibility which was ours. That is, after a minor purge we felt it. As we headed down the last lap to June Week, we all were full of ambitu)n and determination to prove that we were worthy of the faith of the orticers who had trained us and brous ht us this far. So vJ ' t ■ So ' o ' June Week V Ve ' vE not Ml lucH longer here to stay — or June will come soon. It makes no difference how you say it, hecause it all adds up to the fact that we ' ve weathered the storm and hnally are about to take off on our own. We wrapped up academics, reverently laid aside our slide rules and Hudsons and hid farewell to the horrors of the sallyports. It was all over hut the shouting and that we could, would, and did do a lot of. We had all of our eciuipiiicnt and uniforms and could face the world as a brand new shavetail M-1. (Xir folks had come from back home and with them, that gal who we had been sooo faithtul to during our stay here. C ars were all over the place and there was something doing all of the time. If it wasn ' t a P-rade, it was a horse show, or a V eSoos ConQ e ' lodvJt ' ,e Coro ' ceremony of some kind. We went to them all and discovered that at each one there was a feeling of regret when it was over, because, though we ' d never admit it, we all had a good time during our stay here. We had a lot of fast friends that soon would be separated from us. The Long Grey Line was hack in full force and we heard a lot of tall tales that the graduates always spm when they gather. We went to the awards parade and saw the hives get their stars and other awards. We saw all the swords given away for the various awards of merit. At night we went to the hop with a feeling of linality for, though ' .% 4M ' ' ' MJ -Z 7 ' » -a ' we are not m love with F. D. or All White, there is something about it that looks good, though as a cadet it is not appealing to the soul to wear it. Wc had long been packed and ready and it was almost the jump-olF time. We hit that linal P-rade and were proud as we took the salute of the comj- ' aiiies which passed hy in review. Each one felr tiiat lump m his throat as our band swung into " The Hashing White Sergeant " and all the rest of the tunes we had come to love. Then back to the area and the big tiirill for the plebcs. We were glad to shake hands and bring them up to take the places which we were leaving. That night we had the iinal hop and here was very little sittinij out The music vv; just vitiht and vMcW done fn mm j eo4e TIV vc curricuLi of The activities provide enlivening diver- sion from rigors of cadet routine. hONALITl ■At ' ■■ . . kOUS CHi TiiMAN HlJ ' EisJ hINJUfcAVUKb Activities All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy —a criterion un- disputed. One of the most educational and most interesting] methods of relaxation from academic work is an active par- ticipation in one of the varied extra curricular activities at the) Academy. For the purpose of classification they may be divided into two categories — those which function as committees and] are elected bodies, and those which serve as avocations for thc| participants as well as indispensable organizations for tb Corps. Learning and learned alike recognize extra-curricula activities as an important factor in a well-rounded education. Not only do they provide the necessary diversion, but alsol they reveal hidden talents that otherwise might have remaincdl dormant in the individual. More important they stimulac interest in a held in which the cadet has no particular ability! but has a desire to develop an ability. Most important they promote friendship and the trait of being able to work with others. TMat, Sharp, , 1.. .

Honor Committee Let Honor df; e ' er untarned ' I These words taken from the Alma Mater are the cherished ideal of our Honor Code. It is with this goal in mind that the Honor Committee orients each new cadet in the basic princi- ples of the Honor Code during his initial training. It is then the duty of each cadet to further develop his personal honor and thus maintain the code at the high level of honor de- manded by the Corps. The Honor Committee continues to instruct by interpreting controversial points, issuing remind- ers, and investigating violations of the Code. A l Right Sir 369 General Committee " You ' re on the General Coniniittee, how about ... " Thus it goes and will go as long as the Corp which will be forever. This t pical approach leads to the nia|or function of the General Cominii registering cadet opinion with pro]x ' r authorities.

The Dialectic Society presents the results of its months of labor - the 100th Night Show. In search of a new theme, this year the Society presented a musical comedy in which good entertainment was the keynote.

The contest is about to start. The feeling of gloom that Leaping Unas has enveloped the country since the witch " Winter " cast her spell hangs oppressively on the audience. The only way the enchantment can be broken is for this small group to defeat the gloomy lions in unarmed combat. The curtains part and out into the arena step the challengers, led by Citizens Odell, Bleiman, and Reese, fol- lowed by Ward, Sargeant, and Cooper of the Bovinii family; Cavalcante, Fallon, and Stansberry of the Annus clan; with Lombard, the plebian, and many others. All are clad in the brightest of costumes, and their uproarious antics rejuvenate the audience. The lions of gloom cower before the mirthful onslaught, and suddenly the spell is melted.

Public Relations Committee I Begun last fall, the Cadet Public Relations Detail was formed to provide systematic service for the newspaper writers, jihotog- raphers, and radio networks which cover Army athletic events. Supervised by the officers in the Public Relations Ollice, and directed by Mr. Cahill of the Sports Pub- licity Department, the detail has per- formed tasks ranging from spotting foot- ball games to writing articles for pro- grams, and has learned much useful infor- mation in the field of public relations.

The class ring always has been and always will be a source of satisfaction to graduates. For this reason those who are chosen as class members on the Ring Committee know that theirs is not an easy task. The history of our ring is unique. Our crest is representative of the class since it is a composite oi the various designs submitted by the class members. The ties between the twt same crest for both classes.

CiJet Ho,te,s—Mrs. Lystad The week-end is always antiLip.ited by cadets as a welcome reprieve from both the i, ' rey w.ills and the ever-present battle for tenths. The highlight of each week-end is the hop oji Saturday evening, and all look forward to the parade of feminine charms. Whether it is held in the large, informal gymnasium or in small, colorful Cullum Hall, whether there are long, beautiful formals and brass buttons of the formal hop or the relaxed atmosphere of an informal hop — there arc always an abundance of draggoids and snakes ready to trip the light fantastic. Tea hops held in Cullum Hall on dark, dreary Sunday afternoons are the social climaxes of winter week-ends. " I ■ mm On the htam — hall Our Hostesses, Mrs. Lvstad and Mrs. Barth, barkened to our woes and joys alike, and did everything within their power to make cadet life a pleasant existence. Never-to-be-forgotten Plebe Christmas activities, picnics at Delafield and Buckncr, formal and informal hops here at the Piimt and at Stewart Field, and finally, finding our folks places to sta - during June Week all of this they arran,t;ed without thought to loss of their own free time. To them go our sincere thanks for a tough lob well done; we ' ll never forget their untold kindnesses. Stum Club Mefi Skihi SheiiJg Hop Committee Behind the Corps ' most popular social activities are the men of the Hop Committee. The gay informality of the harn dance and the summer hops at Buckner; the color and atmosphere of the winter hops at Cullum Hall; and the sentimental symbolism, graciousness, and beauty of Graduation Hop are all due to the efforts of these cadets.

The Dance Orchestra played for a large number of hops through- out the year and the Corps found that its best music was furnished by this organiza- tion.

Providing year-around sport and training for cadets and officers alike, the club is rapidly expanding. For the competitive trips the club invariably turns out a team worthy of the opposition of any seasoned smooth-bore shooters ' league. The prizes for high scores, as well as the two trips per year, make this club a first choice for many. Sailing Club Since Its inception a year ago the Sailing Club has caught the interest of many cadets and now promises to take a large part in cadet activities. Through outside competition with leaders in intercollegiate competition — MIT, USNA, and USCGA— plus racing on the Hudson, the soldiers are gradually invading the Navy ' s domain and thoroughly enjoying it. With a start of six dinks and two whale- boats, the Sailing Club looks to a brilliant future. Front Row: Schmidt, Lt. Col.

Some of the stars are Maloney, the president unbeaten for three years, Rachmeler, Resnick, Capps, Callan, Bierer, Bellovin, and Greenberg. The Squash Club picks a team to play inter-collegiate matches; this year the team had a full schedule, playing one and sometimes two games each Saturday. The top three men were holdovers from last year — Russ Ball, Bill Dougherty, and Charlie Oliver. Ed Wilford, Walker Bradshaw, and Al Geraci fought for the next three positions, while tennis converts Phil McMullen, Jim Stillson, and Bo Calloway, newcomers Ed Greene and Tom Cormack, and Plebe Phi Hutcheson fought for the remaining places on the ladder.

The purpose of the Camera Club has been to develop that talent in the Corps that otherwise would have remained dormant had there not been photographic facilities made available. The Camera Club is a valuable asset to the Corps m a dual role as a hobby and as an avocation which is an important tool of the modern army. The end of the war did not mean that camera supplies suddenly became plentiful, but the Camera Club doubled its membership and Its activities with the existing equipment and with some aid from the Post Signal Corps. Three contests were held during the year which were the source of the material for the exhibitions in the lobby c the War Department Theatre. The pictures submitted showed the interests of the shutter hends to be drags, sports, and tactical instruction. Robercson — Vice-Presitle?it; Bcnt i: — Pnsidttit; LntAv—Simtary: Palmer, .). M.

Because of the numerous trip games the strategists of the game room enjoyed a season which inaugurated a bigger and better club.

The interest of new mem- bers was so canalized under the guidance of Mr. Kress and the club oflicers — Mock, Gossett, Pompan, and Kennedy that a large number of cadets arc now familiar with the most effective means of attaining the maximum degree of physical development. Following a wartime lull, polo this year attained a position of ma)or importance on the athletic program. Inter- collegiate and outside competition was increased to a near pre-war status and every Saturday night throughout the winter and spring saw a West Point trio in action. Polo ' s rebirth of popularity is evidenced by the ever increasing number of competing teams, and WesfPoint feels largely responsible for the comeback of the amateur league. Undefeated the lirst part of the season, the Hhicls, Gold and Grey riders set as their final goal the inter- collegiate title. lU Polo Club i f 386 Stated: Mallett, D. S., Jones, T., Rice, J.

Bugle Notes Active since 1909, the Bugle Notes Committee each year publishes a handbook for Fourth Classmen which em- braces basic orientation and information relative to buildings, monuments, and general customs and traditions of the Military Academy. Inclusions between the covers of the Bugle Notes of major importance are the Cadet Prayer, a history of West Point since the Revolutionary period, a history and description of buildings and monu- ments with color illustrations, an explanation of the cadet Honor Code, football songs and yells, and pertinent professional notes on the Army. This year, under the editorship and business management of Tom Jones and Dave Mallett, respectively, who were aided by Jim Willson, Jim Rice, and O.C. Captain Finney, the Bugle Notes added new illustrations and changes made necessary by the return to the normal four-year course. Poop PmonifitJ " 7 --NK ' 387 Jacobson BocTgtT, F.

Submitted by the newly- appointed Howitzer Board, it set the wheels in motion wheels that came to a stt)p only after the last Howitzer had been mailed in May. Gradually a staff began to assemble about this core — First Classmen, Cows, Yearlings, and Plebes. The vertex of their rotation was the seventh floor of the forty-ninth division — their goal, The Best Yet, the 1947 Howitzer. The immediate problem of the new Board was the interviewing of prospective printers and en- gravers. This they did until all comers had been met and satis- fied. Bids came in — the big decision was made — and the con- tracts for engraving and printing were let, this year, to Baker, Jones and Hausauer. Working from rough drafts which the Staff had drawn up, Mr. George Heffernan, with his able artists and book designers, set out to capture the ideas and spirit of the Staff. This was not accomplished without much revision and innumerable changes, for, indeed, all were de- termined that this should be The Best Yet. The budget was BUSINESS STAFF SrMeJ: Pabst, Smith.

With the dual purpose of selling the 4000 copies ordered and of meeting the advertising demands, the business staff reorganized itself for action. There emerged a more than cHicient circulation staff, advertisers full of fire and drive, and promoters here and there through the Corps.

It is due to the help from the Corps which was more than rapid in appearing if we needed it. Those of us on the Board who are bowing out leave with a feeling of regret, for it has been a lot of fun.

Urielly, the Armv team is still a young team, consisting of veariings and pleiies for the most part, with several first and second chissmeii. The Aggies from Oklahoma .

Army ' s victories came in the 440 with Bernard Connor, in the two-mile with Freddie Knauss and Frank Tucker tying, in the 880 with jim Egger, and in the 440 relay comprised of Bullock, Brown, Herrick, and Lemheres. In the field events, Chenoweth ' s 200 foot heave was good for first as was DeWitt Coulter ' s performance in the shot put. The fol- lowing Friday, the Army team took part in the Penn Relays at Philadelphia, one of Trackdom ' s Cli 9 4 6 up and Over most important events. A well-run first half-mile by Hamniack put Army five yards in front of NYU, never again to be challenged, as lirown, Egger, and Connor maintained the lead, to bring hack another bronze plaque for the South Gymnasium, and the winning time of 7:57. Despite the slippery turf, Chenoweth ' s 197 foot heave was sufficient to take the event and to sht)w the Eastern colleges what was in store for the season. Jim Eggcr showed versatility by taking a third place in his lirst 4CX ' ) meter hurdle race, after Ct)nnor fell on the second turn. In the 880 yard relay event, Army was shaded by the Middies after the favored Illinois team was disqualified for passing the baton outside the passing zone. Army began to show real ability on the cinders for the season when things began to pop. In a quadrangular meet with Illinois, Dartmouth, and Columbia, Illinois prt)ved to all doubters, that she was supreme in the Big Ten. In her out-running and over-running of her opponents, Illinois took all of the track events save two. Bernie Connor ' s shading of Rehberg in the mile event was all the glory left to the 422 Bii; Rabble. A tnan.mil.ir meet the next week with NYU and Pitt i ave Arniv its lirst decisive vietory of the season. Wins m the half- mile, quarter-mile, mile, and mile relay gave Army enough of a lead to offset Pitt ' s Herb i:)ouglas m the sprints and the broad ]ump. Coulter ' s record-breaking heave was the outstanding event of the meet. Army, after a year ' s lapse, returned to Heptagonal competi- tion, defeating Navy and taking the lead in Eastern track supremacy. Connor ' s victory in the mile and Hammock ' s second place in the 880 helped Army keep in sight of winning until Charlie Nash ' s surprise victory over Fred Boumaii of Navy brought Army a clc and well-earned victory. In the combination IC4A-Navy meet at Annapolis, Navy ' s well-balanced team proved too much for Army. Jim Egger ' s half-mile and Dill Chenoweth ' s pole vaulting weren ' t enough to pull Army through. Blanchard ' s shot putting and Nash ' s broad-jumping, although good enough to beat Navy ' s best, were not enough when the team totals were added and Army was forced to wait another year to BEAT NAVY! 423 [■ ' r ■- f " -: " ji: ' i POu ..A ii ' ' aV f ■« ' " y % ♦v n; vr T %, ;| | P|.:: : Wi s ' % Front Row: Crowley, Kichmond, Chahot, Simmotis, Kenny I Captain), Cairns, Mosis, Arnold, Walttrhousc.

Flanking Davis in the outfield were a number of candidates, for injuries put several flychasers out of action. John Nance and Bob Chabot divided the season in left held, with C.habot continuing his fine play of the past two seasons and Jerry Howe and Norm Robinson splitting the duties in right lield. Capable reserves who saw quite a bit of action included Benedict, Bierer, Walterhouse, and Ogden. Among the highlights of the season were the two contests played against the National League teams from New York, the Giants and the Dodgers. The cadets played inspired ball against Mel Ott ' s men, and were robbed of a 2-1 victory b a ninth inning error. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. A week later the Brooklyn Dodgers traveled to Doubleday Field and before a capacity crowd defeated Army 7-3- Charley Simmons hit the longest ball of the day, a 400 foot homer against the big leaguers. The subsequent contests revealed weaknesses in key posi- tions, and Major Amen spent a good part of the season ex- perimenting with underclassmen who will form the nucleus of the 1947 West Point baseball team.

After winning their tirst meet with the Jersey City Recreation Club, they came out second best in the next twi), but It ' s no disgrace to he beaten by aggregations like the New Ynrk Turners, who have been doing gymnastic work for years, and the Swiss Gymnastic Society, the present National Champs. All things considered, Army ' s start was a good one since it commenced almost as soon as Christmas leave was over and before the team was in the best condition; besides, look at the close score against the Swiss Society! With a capable manager like Bentley, a coach like Mr. Maloney, and that unbeatable Army spirit of cooperation and determination, the muscle-men put forth their best efforts week after week and demonstrated the versatility of West Point ' s sports program. Next year ' s prospects look good, with capable men return- ing in every event — look for big things from Army ' s gymnasts. cr YMNASTICS 1947 hr Kow: Gillogly (Manager), Delia Chiesa, Deehan, Borg, Womble, Burrows, Ozier Ind Row: Mr. Chalmers (Coach ' ), Messinger, Hayes, Wentsch, Best, Rowell. ird Rou Lt.

Few members of hist year ' s team are kit and Coaeh Chalmers, who recently came to us from service in the Navy as a Lieutenant, has had to iill the gaps with new, but hard workuig candidates. Army has not shown unusual strength in any event, even though several sprinters, divers, and relay teams did a very good job in their fields and show considerable promise, . s a whole, however, cadet tankers are not veterans and have much to learn. Starters include team captain Ozier, Borg, Burrows, IXehan, Sand- man, Van Fleet, Hayes, HofTman, Townsley, U ' entsch, Womble, Best, Hollingshead, Irwin, Lamdin, Prosser, Rogers, Rowell, and SWIMMING, Sceuart. The only man who will not be back next year is Ozier, who as well as being a fine captain and an outstanding diver, helped to teach the Plebes much about diving. The " C " squad had a very good year due to the excellent coaching ability of Don Starry. Con- sidering that the team did not have an outstanding season, one very important accomplishment has been attained — experience. With nearly all of these men returning to swim again for Army, that experience gained this year will bring profitable dividends in the seasons to come. 32 Princeton University 43 34 U. of Pennsylvania 41 35 Ohio State University 40 22 Yale University 53 31 Harvard University 44 43 Brown University 32 ' »ity25 ity 38 Nil 9 4 7 439 I Months of ti ring, hard-slugging, and bruising afternoons in the practice rings of South Gym have sown the seeds whose fruit, now full grown, represents the strong and successful West Point boxing squad. All cadets who recall those gruelling mornings of Plebe Gym where Coach Cavanagh put them through the paces with " Jab! Left Hook! Right Hook! and Right to the Body! " have some idea of how much work the men of our slugging team have put in to get in shape for some of the toughest intercollegiate boxing teams in the East. Although the team has not produced any spectacular wins, it has proven powerful and steady, always holding up Army ' s end in good shape. The competition was really stiff this year, and the leather men met their opponents aggressively and opened up when they found themselves in the tight spots. An excellent example of the aggressiveness was the rugged encounter with Syracuse. The opponents, considered one of the two strongest teams in the East, the other being ' irginia, boasted four 1941 and 1942 champs recently returned from the service.

Commercial developments include Marvinol resin. Honeycomb structural and others. SELECTED AS STANDARD by IcadingNorth and South American passenger and cargo airlines, the Martin 2-0-2 and 3-0-3 set the pace in the commer- cial field. Many advanced features also recommend these planes for military transports. HARD-HITTING turrets, designed and built by Martin for Army air- craft, pack a lethal punch.

He has grown wings. He is maneuverable. He has swift mobility that today ' s military practitioners give to a peace-time army. And the Fairchild Packet is his airplane. It ' s the standard carrier of the Ninth Air Force uliicli niuves airborne battalions, air transportable infantry, field gnns, and cargo — tons of it — in maneuvers measured in hours and minutes and thousands of miles. Fairchild engineers designed and develojied the Packet during die war. They built an airplane with an ability to use less-than-average length runways. They rl AIRCHILD ENGINE AN 30 ROC provided for high payload, ease and speed in loading and unloading, and the ability to shift swiftly from one kind of flight assignment to another. These abilities are paying off for the Ninth Air Force. The Packet is a tool they liandle smarlly. eili- ciently. It is helping to shape and mold tlic pattern of modern military strategy. Today, the same engineering vision, imagination and ingeiuiilv that developed the Packet are fitting new ideas of flight into designs on llie drawing board — designs that assure " the touch of tomorrow in the planes of today.
