Holden Librarian, U.S.M.A. ae UOIOD C50 ORG DHCIOD SINTRV HE Howitzer Staff has woven into its review of the History of the Class of 1948 an account of the Mili- tary Academy graduates ' contribution to the Nation in the varied fields in which they were called upon to serve — in Technical Education to broadcast their engineering skills, in Public Service to work with our ranking administrative leaders, in Military Preparedness to preserve peace and security, in National De- velopment to keynote our country ' s growth — and in a contribution of life itself forthe preservation of our democracy. The achievements of our predecessors which establish the theme of this yearbook were impelled by their devotion to the fundamental prin- ciples upon which the Academy stands, embodied in the motto Duty, Honor, Country. We are privileged to dedicate ourselves to the glorious tradition they have created. GOIGBOGO ROGER GORDON ALEXANDER BRIGADIER GENERAL, U.S.A., RETIRED THE FIRST DEAN OF THE ACADEMIC BOARD Asc jTxS Chief of the Topographical Division of the Intelligence Section, General Headquarters, A.E.F., in World War I, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal, the Legion of Honor, and the Order of St. Michael and St. George. For his wise counsel and outstanding services in the expan- sion and adaptation of the Military Academy to meet the de- mands of World War II, and for his assistance in solving the problems relating to personnel, war and post-war planning, and the institution of new curriculums, he was awarded the Legion of Merit. But the greatest recognition of his services was his appointment as Dean of the Academic Board with the rank of Brigadier General. General Alexander devoted 31 years of his career to the service of the Military Academy as Instructor, Professor and Dean. Although he retired on 31 August 1947, he retains his place in the affections of the Corps of Cadets, to whom he has always been an understanding adviser as well as preceptor. r.y Brigadier General Roger Gordon Alexander, Ciass of 1907; Graduate of the Enginier School and of the Army War College HARRY S.TRUMAN COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF JAMES FORRESTAL SECRETARY OF NATIONAL DEFENSE CHIEF KENNETH C.

" Henry Adams iKir i West Point was the first technical school in the United States and for almost half a century the only effective one; Academy graduates became the medium from which the principal American universities obtained their teachers and textbooks in the physical and mathematical sciences. Of the technical schools which existed before the Civil War, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute graduated its first class of civil engineers in 1835. The Lawrence School ' s engineering department was opened by Professor Henry L. Eustis, USMA 1842. He was Dean of the school until his death in 1885. The Sheffield Scientific School ' s chair in civil engineering was established in 1852 and filled by Professor John Pitkin Norton, USMA 1831. He held the position for thirty-one years. In the textbook field, Joseph G. Totten, Class of 1805, published an early treatise on Mortar and Masonry. Dennis H. Mahan, Class of 1824, published a treatise on Military and Civil Engineering which was used in many parts of the world; Edward H. Courteney, Class of 1821, Mechanics and Mechanical Philosophy; W. H. Bartlett, Class of 1826, Optics; Albert E. Church, Class of 1828, Elements of Descriptive Geometry, well-known in American colleges for over eighty years — the list is endless. OGGBOIOD Professor Jacob Whitman Bailey (USMA 1832) assisted with the laying of the Atlantic Cable by his laboratory work at West Point. He developed many improvements in the microscope and was the author of more than fifty papers in the varied fields of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Geology, Natural His- tory and Microscopic Researches. _.- 11 Major General Maxwell D.

MILITARY PSYCHOLOGY AND LEADERSHIP MlH HEADQUARTERS, USCC SKETCH OF TACTICAL DEPARTMENT ' S HISTORY The Department of Tactics was born during Colonel Thayer ' s administration when 2nd Lt. George W. Gardiner was designated first Instructor in Tactics and charged with the disciplinary training of the Corps of Cadets. At that time the Corps consisted of one battalion of two companies, commanded by a cadet colonel. Cadet officers rotated positions each week. Major William J. Worth reorganized the Department in 1820 and is known as the " Father of the Tactical Department. " In December of that year two Lieutenants were detailed as the first company Tactical Officers; they lived in cadet barracks. The title of " Commandant of Cadets " and " Officer in Charge " are first noted in the Regulations of 1825- Down through the years the Department of Tactics has grown to meet the times, but has maintained its original organization and continued to carry out its mission of conducting the administration, discipline, and tactical training of the Corps. The present Corps of Cadets is organized as a Brigade of two regiments of twelve companies each. The Department of Tactics — Headquarters, USCC — is headed by the Commandant, who is assisted by a large staff whose job it is to insure close coordination and staff " supervision of the training and administration of the Corps ol Cadets.

General Higgins assumed command of the Corps of Cadets in January 1948, during the middle of our Second Class Year. He brought with him a wealth of war ex- perience, a knowledge of men, and a technique of leadership which he has ex- tended to us and which has guided us through our especially formative First Class Year. His " graduating " with us in June serves to strengthen the already strong bonds of respect and affection which we feel for him. Brigadier General Gerald J.

Harkins, Assistant Commandant of Cadets who has been designated to succeed General Higgins as Commandant upon the latter ' s departure from the Military Academy. I BGOIVIGISB A ' ' No other educational institution in the land has contributed so many names as West Point has contributed to the honor roll of the nation ' s greatest citizens . " Theodore Roosevelt The Nation called upon succeeding generations of Military Academy graduates for public service because they possessed a broad experience in every phase of public administration, and in handling large numbers of men and large sums of money. U.S. Grant, Class of 1843, was President of the United States for two terms. McClellan, Class of 1846, and Hancock, Class of 1844, were candidates of major parties for the same office. Many served as envoys, ministers, ambassadors, and governors of States. The Academy has been well represented in the House of Representatives, the United States Senate, and the Cabinet. The number of West Pointers who are judges, presidents of univer- sities, and chief engineers or supervisors of corporations and public works runs into hundreds and is testimony to the universal adaptability of West Point education. They proved that West Point training for military service was training for public service. .ll[ n - Leonidas Polk of the Class of 1827, Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church, founder of the University of the South. U. S. Grant, Class of 1843, served as President of the United States for two full terms. Washington and Lee University is expressive of Robert E. Lee ' s (JJSMA 1829) profound interest in the educa- tion of young men. As its president, he raised the school to a high level of, competence.

For the purpose of bringing our attitude towards Duty to the high plane that has always characterized our devotion to Honor, the Duty Committee was organized. As set forth in its charter, only the graduate with a high sense of Duty leaves West Point equipped to realize and to discharge the obligations to himself and to others which he has undertaken ... A high sense of Honor is the Corps ' most esteemed and cherished possession. The Honor Com- mittee, composed of twenty four elected First Classmen and the First Captain, is proud to serve as the guardian of the Corps ' Honor Code. The success of its endeavors has been and will be measured in the future by the continued high-level maintenance of this code. 1st Row: White, Sandman, Braswell, Doyle (Chairman), Anderson, Nelson JM. liidRow: Hubbard, Cormack, Shef- field, Hall, Wa ' ggener, Kerth, Wadsworth, Perry, Williams, Bandcen, Doty. }rd Raw: Wurster, Witko, Emerson (Secretary), Packard, Sykes, Barber, Schlotterbeck, Nelson EB. mmWMi k • 8 d HONOR 33 POLITICIANS • • • 1st Row: Lcwando, Aron, Petersen, Gilliam Chairman), Bayer, Anderson, Graves, Foote. 2nd Row: Phillips Edwards Swearengen, Griffith, Muehlenweg, Boss, Hartnell, Moore, Shivelv, Gaver, Josephs, Bettis. 3rd Row: Elebash Hvman ' Whitehead, Rosencrans, Adkins.

Lifting the gloom From one steppe to another Wl BGRGGGIGS - " War, like most other things, is a science to be acquired and perfected by diligence, by perseverance, by time, and by practice. " Alexander Hamilton The graduates of the United States Military Academy always have been a keystone in the structure of national defense. This was the object for which Washington, Hamilton and Knox urged the creation of a national military academy — this was the object for which it was dedicated by Thomas Jefferson. In peace the graduates functioned by constant application, by study and education, by research and experiment. They wrote articles and published books on military art, studied developments abroad, led in militia formations and contributed their skill to the National Guard and organized reserves. In war their experience was decisive in matters of military organiza- tion, supply, training and leadership. Their first effective contribution, in the War of 1812, won Henry Adams ' tribute: " Perhaps without exaggeration the West Point Academy might be said to have decided next to the Navy the result of the War. " The Mili- tary Academy graduates won even greater acclaim in succeeding wars and the whole world acknowledges with respect and esteem the names of Lee, of Grant, of Pershing, of MacArthur, of Eisenhower.

There followed me- dium successes in meets with Missouri and NYU and in the Hep- tagonal Games. Glenn Davis broke the Academy 220 record and tied for the 100-yard dash to lead the trackmen to an upset of Navy.

BALL The Army fielded an all-winning baseball club until the fateful day when an aroused Navy nine brought the streak to an abrupt end. In spite of this single defeat, the team ' s season was a highly successful one in which the leadership and play of Glenn Davis were potent factors. Other important games were those with Yale, Fordham, Penn, and Maryland, although the Hofstra, Princeton, and Lehigh contests also provided their share of tense moments. The team rebounded from the Navy loss to defeat Maryland in a real thriller as Robinson, Irons, and Galiffa starred in the ninth-inning uprising. In the final victory over Lehigh, Davis gave a sterling exhibition as he stole bases number 22 and 23 and scored from first on a single.

Vil- lanova arrived primed for an upset and twice they held Army drives, but Gustafson and Scott scored to down the Wildcats, 13-0. Outrunning the Bisons 358 yards to 50, the Army garnered a point for each of the 47 participating. Colorado failed to score. Defense dominated and Illinois was held twice close to the goal. Both teams moved often but neither could score, a fumble thwarting our best opportu- nity. Neither the steady drizzle nor VPI could force a halt as Army pounded out a 40-0 win.

Following the 65-13 drubbing of W and L, the team came back from a bad first quarter at Notre Dame and gave the nation ' s best a tough fight the rest of the way before losing, 27-7. Penn, rated number three in the country, was fought to a standstill with the Army line turning in a remarkable performance. The scoreboard told the story at the final gun, 7-7.

Led by the steady playing of Captain Art Snyder, the Army sextet hit a new high in scoring and combined this feat with several shut- outs by Goalie Moss. Coach Patten had to juggle his offensive lines around Kuyk and Snyder to achieve depth in the defense and many varied combinations resulted.

Bringing with him a new style of basketball, Coach Mauer started at the bottom and built a team of which the Corps was intensely proud. Utilizing a deliberate break and a man-to-man defense, the 1948 Basketball Squad started by winning one and losing three. Then a victory over Williams followed by two more losses pre- ceded three straight wins which brought the record back to .500. A close one was dropped to Rutgers before the game which was Army ' s best. This victory over a highly favored Fordham team was a held day for the Army as it rolled up 85 points. A last minute loss to Connecticut came before another high scoring game — the 88-28 win over Lehigh. A loss to Colgate and a vic- tory over Yale brought the season to a close with the exception of the Navy game on March 6th. From the won and lost standpoint the ' 48 season wasn ' t highly successful, but it was a great season for a coach who had to revamp the method of attack and for a squad which had to battle up-hill all the way. 82 JL ,;;ii ' vhicll Saved by an arm!

The People, which commands President, Congress, Army and Navy, needed this institution and needed you. It has created this institution and educated you. And you are still of this People, hone of its bone, blood of its blood. Edward Everett Hale To the graduating Class of 1890 Author of A Man Without A Country The contribution of graduates of West Point to national life is written not only in the records of those who made significant contributions in the fields of Technical Education, Public Service, Military Preparedness and National Development, but also in the honor rolls which record the names of those who died in their Country ' s service. In America military power has forever been subordinate to civil authority. With few exceptions, in obedience to this civil authority, every class of West Point ' s graduates since the first class in 1802 has had some members killed in action. This is the ultimate in service to country, in democracy in action. } GCDOGSBGa ic This cadet uniform o] 1802 is the same as that worn by the cadets who belonged to the First Regiment oj Artillerists and Engineers, organized at West Point in 1795. Cadets were trained iti this Regiment before there was a military academy, and becam the nucleus oj the Corps of Cadets in 1802. coat, was superseded in 1816 by a grey one adopted in honor oj General Winjield Scott ' s troops who wore grey at the victory oj Chippewa. This cadet unijorm oj 1865 includes the truncated conical jull dress hat which was adopted about 1851 and worn by the Corps oj Cadets until 1899. This cadet unijorm oj 1935 has re- mained unchanged since 1899. The coat of arms oj the Military Academy was adopted in that year and incor- porated into the design oj the jull dress hat.

We have friends here we never want to forget. We ' ll remember the contented Cows, firm in the conviction that this was their year, still firmer supporting H-1 in and out of barracks; the Yearlings, always the first with a willing hand; the First Classmen, always dreaming of cars, carrots, and free time; and a top-notch batch of Plebes, providing so much of the company humor and spark, and of course, elbow-grease. Whether in the Mess hall, at inter- murder, or on football trips, H-Co was tops. We twelve who are leaving want to express our appreciation, having known you who are staying.

The responsibility for this spirit rests in those men who have a place in the ranks of the company. The ring leaders are a Corn- husker, a Jerseyite, a Hawkeye, a Cracker, a Rebel, a Bear, an Arizonian, and five Brats; but that is only the beginning. The Cows and the Yearlings are veterans of two campaigns under the K-Co banner, and to them a good share of the credit must be given; and finally, the new recruits, the Plebes, warrant their share of glory.

I Gathered together from the ranks of old E-2, F-2, G-2, and C-1, we have accumulated a variety of extremes second to that of no other company. From G-2 came the stern, harsh tradition of a rough Plebe year while from F-2 came the opposite tradition of athlete ' s paradise. A touch of E-2 and C-1 has blended this into a concoction from which has risen the beautiful aroma of two star men, a First Captain, and the usual percentage of Goats. Through this seeth- ing, whirling mass we see experiences of Pine Camp, Camid, Juarez, the Notre Dame and Navy games, and many more that have paved the way in preparing us for the real tests ahead. The speed and force of this mass reminds us of the three greatest Army football teams and the two immortal backs.

Danville, irginia Ind Congressional boiciv, T From the shores of Lake Erie far beyond the Catskills, Howie brought to West Point a sense of humor and vitality that could turn the serious into the gay, the boring into the pleasant. His cheerfulness and gaiety inevitably bring a laugh. But Howie tempers his lightheartedness with a seriousness that can tackle any problem. Howie ' s smile and laugh would bring cheer to any foxhole but he says he would rather ride than walk and the Cavalry beckons. If you ' re looking for dependability with a smile, here ' s your man. No nickname has ever befitted a cadet so accurately as does Tiger. Exuding vigor from reveille ' til taps, his fierce voice and boundless enthusiasm struck terror into three generations of doolies; but underneath this stern exterior is a genuine good nature and a wonderful sense of humor. Many an evening meant for study ended as a lively rat-race with Tiger as the center of attraction. His main diversions, swing music and workouts in the gym, complete this portrait of Tiger, an agreeable mixture of effervescent energy and a Southern accent.

He boxed away his first gloom period, reaching the Intercollegiate Championships. Combining self-confidence with natural ability, Al sparkled in numerous intramurals. Not being con- tent to rest on his athletic laurels, he strove to take West Point ' s spirit and learning with him. Always diligent in his studies and outstanding in tactics, he was determined to make himself a superior officer. Al ' s amiable congeniality makes the achievement of his goal most certain. Even when Jim ' s official residence was changed from Ken- tucky to Iowa, his heart stayed in the land of bluegrass, juleps, and tobacco fields. Perhaps this background fosters his skill at horsemanship and his love for gay parties and carefree week-ends. Where good times are had, Jim can always be found; where fun is scarce, he can be counted upon to help produce some. The energy of his personality is sparked by an imagination that also gives him serious and ambitious in- clinations to succeed whenever he sets his mind upon a goal.

Academics, always long and generally difhcult, proved no effective block to Andy ' s readiness to take time out to listen to classical music, for he is particularly interested in the piano. Star man and a congenial Swede, Andy was one of the few who came directly from high school and made good in an academic way. In working problems he did the right thing at the right time saying, " I don ' t know why, " but usually ending up with the correct answer. Unlike most, Carl ' s free time was spent participating in some type of exercise — in- formal football, handball, swimming, or just keeping in shape in general.

Well balanced in his work and play, sincere in all his actions; these are his credentials. Probably the greatest admirer of the von SchliefFen plan since von Schlieffen, Lou can often be seen in the Military Room of the Library coughing over a long, black stogie. Though a conversationalist extraordinary, his other interests, including listening to classical music and playing pool, are as varied as the weather in his home state. It has been said that Lou can make any kind of racket, tennis, squash, or otherwise, sit up and talk; but his greatest rackets by far are his daily siestas and trips to the Boodlers.

Not resting on equestrian laurels, Neil convulsed us with his incisive wit and impressed us by his shrewd understanding of human kind, but left us unconvinced that he who fathoms the Horse necessarily divines the Woman. Colonel Thayer gave West Point a firm foundation — Russ gave West Point a good squash team. Not only was he unbeatable in the Corps, but it was difficult to find a coach to give him competition. Thanks to Russ ' s untiring efforts, the Army squash team won a very respectable position in intercollegiate circles. A little on the quiet side and easy going, Russ was perpetually confused by his inability to make friends with the Tac. Russ tried hard and nearly succeeded.

As he has in everything else. Bill will succeed at this approach.

A faulty alarm system sabotaged his radio, but Hub could always find escape and relaxation in books or on a camping week-end. Well informed on most subjects, he will argue anything.

Behind his colorful exterior Brad possessed a powerful intelligence that would have won him stars every year had he not been lured from the books by athletic and Pointer interests.

Joe leaves West Point with the same level-headed outlook which characterized his eminently successful stay here. His natural ability set him well ahead in the eyes of the Academic Department and even the T. D. posed no real problem for this lad. A versatile athlete, the possessor of a keen sense of humor, Joe has a well-rounded personality that will win him success wherever he goes. None of our classmates leaves the Academy better prepared for the future or better fortified with the good wishes of his classmates.

However, after this initial reticence has been overcome, his is one of the most satisfying friend- ships imaginable. This as well as his sound judgment and physical prowess, is indicated by the fact that his classmates have chosen him to fill the positions of captain of the soccer team, advertising manager of the Howitzer, and representative on the Special Programs Committee. It was Jack ' s subtle humor which made that extra maturing year bearable. Uncle Richard ' s philosophy is summarized by his favorite saying, " Food is the essence of life. " His digestive tract never seems the worse for wear, probably because of his tender care of it during his frequent meditations in the QM Sack, Ml.

Everlastingly good-natured, he never failed to answer with a smile our banter about Airborne, the only man ever to be three years a corporal. Our first Beast Barracks memories of Buck are, of course, those of a huge food capacity; but as his fall and spring football seasons faded into Recognition, everyone became conscious of his real talent. For it was at Popolopen, Yearling summer, that he perfected the water fighting technique which was to keep the twenty-fifth division grabbing for its lifebelt.

Though engaged in numerous activities, this true lover of the outdoors was never too busy to fish in the summer or to follow ski trails in the winter. An enthusiastic participant in individual sports, he excelled in squash and tennis. Possessed of wonderful powers of concentration, he manifested even more administrative ability than athletic ability. Coupled with these traits, his quiet poise and dry humor round out his character which we will always respect iwd remember. H.i in;_; .i mind of his own, Ted found our life at the Academy .1 new experience despite the fact that he had lived on posts most of his life. Ted was a true outdoor man and always ready to drop his books in favor of swimming, riding, or camping. His athletic prowess blossomed forth to make him an undefeated breast stroke swimmer and a cross country champion on the intramural stage. Considering his natural ability and determination, it is certain that West Point is just Ted ' s first step to success. ,; akfl[ I By golly.

On the physical side he unveiled latent abilities at every meeting of the Cow Athletic Society and became an accomplished horseman. Finding him unchanged throughout his four years, let ' s fill the mugs again and drink another toast to Willie! You ' ll know he ' s near by the happy and sonorous harmonics which permeate the air.

His constant cheerfulness and even temper have been an unending inspiration and aid. His personality and ability to accomplish his aims would be sure signs of success in any career. The Army is fortunate to acquire so fine a gentleman, athlete, and outstanding leader. Cal saw his first cadet day that there were two things that would divide his time: sack and academics. He devoted his stay to this dual program with a thorough success that few have known. True, several other pursuits threatened his avowed schedule, but none could replace the all-important twins of his ritualistic career. He took everything else in a characteristic assertive stride which covered several thousand assorted books and several more thousand lengthy letters written and received.

His imagination showed itself in his humor and also in his ideas for an extra-curricular activity every season. For everyone, Cance had that feeling from within; in return, he was universally well-liked. The only malevolent creatures in this big happy family were horses. However, with the exit of horse cavalry, the Army looks mighty good to Cance, and vice versa. The Liberal Arts cadet, Flapps was an advocate of a course in ethics to render unnecessary his position as a slide rule jockey. Although a difficult man with whom to argue, because his apprehensive convictions made his point of view always seem right, Flapps could support his statements by some good sound logic.

Never concentrating his talents in any one field, he had a knack for doing everything well, and a versatile athletic ability that enabled him to excel at any sport.

Fred came to West Point straight from high school and was hardly dry behind the ears; he graduated a mature and well-developed man. On the humorous side, Fred was famous for his harrowing experiences as a truck driver and as a horseman. Outwardly, he was an unassuming cadet with a genuine sense of humor. Actually, though, he possessed a surprisingly serious intellect, a capable mind and a con- scientious attitude. Fred ' s most valuable attribute was his unperturbable temperament. There goes assembly! Here comes Lew! That ' s our lovable, likeable, gigable Lew. In spite of his suave speech and fas- cinating manner with women, he could not budge the Tac. Although casually indifferent to studies, Sleeze kept amazingly well-informed on current events. As diverse as New Yorker articles and poetry are, he read both religiously and could scarcely put down good books. This master of the repartee found time for golf, polo and the duties of an imaginative hop manager. A broad-minded individual, he has definite convic- tions and always upholds them vigorously.

Early in Plebe Year, Jack ' s abilities were soon recognized when he was elected Company Hop Manager, a position he ably filled for four years. His love of music and adeptness at the piano have caused him to spend many hours in the class club. Jack ' s diligence and friendliness in the performance of any task will assure him of the highest achievements throughout his career. After sparring with the Academic Department for the greater portion of the week the average individual would head for the sack, but not so with Lake. He has enthusiastically par- ticipated in such activities as cheer leading, the Glee Club and Choir to such an extent that many of his friends have called him " extra-curricular Churchill. " By throwing himself into every job he has faced with his customary vigor, he has managed to dominate not only the academic departments, but also to considerably enliven the many phases of his extra- curricular activities.

When Stubby first made his appearance behind the grey walls, he was big and naive. Now, four years later, he is bigger.

At any rate, he accepted it only as a surmountable obstacle on the path to wine, women, and song — emerging as its recognized con- queror. Stub and the wild blue yonder go well together and we know they ' ll always get along with one another.

" Amid the thrashing and banging of bugles and drums, Bill instinctively manages to stagger to reveille, bleary-eyed and silent. As the day browses along he indolently attends classes, and finally manages to face the world after undergoing the agonies of afternoon tactics. From then on, he exerts himself only to go to the Boodlers or to suffer a bit of eyestrain during his evening reading period. An irrevocable pessimist, he passes many hours pulling his falling hair in despair of the deplorable state to which West Point has degenerated.

Artistic and military abilities are combined here in the right proportion to produce a sure success. Evidently not having received word from any of the three brothers who preceded him here, Richie innocently entered West Point. Overcoming his Army brat stigma, he evidenced brief but enlightening symptoms of normalcy. His classmates will remember him not for dragging one girl every five weeks but five girls every one week.

A shock of blond hair, sleepy blue eyes, hearty laughter — here we have White Nick.

Generous and modest, intensely loyal to his friends and to his ideals, he was unconsciously what we all sought to be — a scholar and a gentleman. A connoisseur of savory food, good music and pulchritudinous women, the sartorially resplendent Gush, the dean of M-Go ' s gay week-end set, spent as much time as possible reveling in the exciting atmosphere of his beloved New York City.

It is the innate faculty of this man to prove himself valuable in any situation. Whether it be on the parade ground or in an athletic contest, Jim will be an asset to his organization. Jim gained a well deserved position in the Corps by his immaculate appearance, his willingness to work and the high esteem of his associates. A more considerate and sincere friend to those who know him cannot be desired. Jack came to USMA after serving in the Navy on board a minesweeper. It didn ' t take him long to get oriented and by Plebe Christmas he was really in his element in working on the Hop Committee. Almost any afternoon you could find him involved in a fast game of handball or in the Boodlers talking about everything in general. Jack possesses the qualities to step out and lead a group forward. His devotion to the ideals he firmly believes in should lead him far on the road to success.

Although he never appeared to be putting forth much effort, he carried out his duties efficiently and was better than average in academics. This ardent Virginian ' s greatest attribute is his ability to take all disappointments without complaining. He was always confident that he could surmount all obstacles in achieving his goals. Joe injected a little of his humor into any situation, but it will be his sincerity and high ideals that will make him a success. » MERCER McCONNICO DOTY Birmingham, Alabama Army Acquiring his nickname before he first dropped his B-bag in Central Area, Monk withdrew into the monastery of his comforter-covered sack for long enough to justify his title. However he never missed any fun or good times due to hiberna- tion; instead he used this lair as concealment against overwork. His guitar and songs served to liven dull evenings and his sub- tle wit seldom missed finding the humorous side of a situation. All this with his thoughtfulness gave him a charm that could not help but be appreciated by all of us.

His genuine friendship and humor made him liked and envied. Always he seemed imbued with an intense joy of living that infected those about him. Easy going Bill carried this same ease into everything from the tennis court to wonderful weekends as far away from West Point as possible. Perhaps his naturalness helped him to do everything better than well; for Bill has versatility. Undoubtedly Bill will move through life making friends and influencing people. Sounding off in the mess hall, imitating a sea lion, playing intramural soccer, football, and cross country, letters full of sports clippings and boodle from home (with napkins) were the little things that brightened Lee ' s four years in cadet gray. Coupled with a quick wit was his sincere interest in the welfare of others. His too tight dress coat and his ever ready humorous remark were his trademarks.

A good sense of humor and a properly proportioned outlook characterize Ray — it is by these qualities that we will remember him. The echoes from the cry " mail ' s in " never succeeded in dying out in the halls of barracks before Ben was in the orderly room collecting his daily stack of letters. With his sincerity and industriousness, Wynn not only managed his huge corre- spondence but contributed unreservedly to many activities at the Point.

An avid Southerner, he re-fought many battles with his northern classmates without ever admitting defeat. This never-say-die spirit will carry Ash far throughout his military career. Gene came to us from Tennessee with his pleasing way, his big smile, and his love for the saddle. His sense of humor with the proper amount of seriousness has given him the approved solution to tackling and solving any problem.

Even the Tac liked to have a few files with him in case of an emergency. Gill always had something on the fire. Whether it was man- aging his swimming team, lining up a drag, or trying to get out of trouble, he never spent a dull moment. From the plains of Missouri, Jose brought to West Point a desire to succeed in whatever he attempted. Hiving academics quickly, he always found time for participating in some form of athletics. When he wasn ' t the heaviest eater in the company, he was dieting to reduce his 175 frame to 155 pounds for intra- mural competition. Reinforced by a winning smile and jovial sense of humor, Joe ' s cheerfulness enhanced his own popularity while infecting all those about him.

JOSEPH EUGENE GORRELL Mexico, Missouri 9th Congressional JAMES BURNUS HALL Huntington, West Virginia 4th Congressional After three years at Oregon State College and more than a year in the Army, Bob came to West Point with a more mature attitude toward life than many of his classmates, which accounts for his seriousness. Early in Yearling Year Bob be- came known throughout the Corps as Caffey and that name has remained with him ever since. At the beginning of Second Class Year Bob took the job of coaching the goats of the underclasses in his company which generally meant spending little time on his own academics. Cross Country 4 Soccer 3-2-1 Track 4-3-2-1 Sunday School Teacher 4-3 Hop Committee 4-3-2-1 Corporal 3-2 Lieutenant 1 Sparked with a burning desire for an Army life, Gravy early discovered that his glory bubble was overstressed by the exigencies of Plebe Year. As a result, Warren became a charter enthusiast in the Date a Month Club for the relief of hard pressed Plebes. Scrubbing his own dainties. Gravy cut cadet expenditures to the bone. Long applied experience in pinching Restaurant Checks till the printing ran culminated in being appointed Company Budget Officer. Undaunted by quill and cadet public opinion, Warren clung rock-bound to his inborn civilian outlook. Steve outstandingly exemplified a trait of character which is all but extinct in the modern world — the quality of consist- ency. A real Christian, Deak was not content with mere lip or knee service to his God; for his Faith was constant in an age of turbulence, his Hope triumphantly surmounted the frequent frustrations of cadet life, and his Charity knew not person or circumstance. Far from being a recluse, he brought to dragging, bridge, handball, dancing lessons, and bull sessions all the energy, humor and keen intelligence of a great personality. A casual " Howdy " and generous smile hails the approach of Jim — whose West Virginian wit so cheered our life — whose manner and charms brought many weekend heartthrobs. To speak of a weekend and not mention Cullum Hall ' s hops would make Jim ' s red sash swell in protest, for his greatest enjoy- ment was found on the dance floor. For thrills our mountaineer picked football, where from his managerial position he could view every action. It may be said that when friends are scarce Jim will be ours — with all his humor and loyalty. m Wrestling 4 Squash Club 3-2 Hundredth Night Show 3 Camera Club 2-1 General Committee 2-1 Sergeant 1 Deak Acolyte Director of Missal Readers General Committee 2-1 Corporal 2 Supply Sergeant 1 K-2 4-3-2-1 Jim Football Equipment Manager Major A Track Numerals Ski Club Howitzer Hop Committee Honor Committee Corporal Lieutenant C-1 4-3-2-1 4 4-3-2-1 2-1 2-1 3-2 jaafiiSL...

The Mick is usually quiet and unobtrusive, yet brings to any gathering a calmly jocular presence. We admire him for his principles; the Army needs his efficiency. Jack came to West Point with high ideals and a determination to do everything well. Always lauding his home state of New Jersey, he never failed to add humor and smirks to all conversa- tions. He claimed to be hard as nails, but always managed to soften up with the femmes. Although Ham laughed off most hardships, he was serious, conscientious and determined when the occasion demanded it.

Punk eased his way through the Academy with little trouble, that little trouble consisting of a turn-out battle with the King ' s English.

A connoisseur of the fine things in life, his taste leaves little to be desired. Jim, a Navy Junior, followed his father ' s advice when he chose to come lo West Point. He never regretted that choice. Sold on a service career early in childhood, his one and only ambition has been to wear bars, leaves, eagles, and stars. Quiet, retiring, serious, and capable, he should not find it difficult to reach his highest goal. A formidable and w ell informed opponent in a call to quarters debate, Larry kept well ahead of academics with a minimum of effort. His extra energy was devoted to athletics and faithful attendance at hops. Putting forth resounding previews of next Sunday ' s hymns earned him the well deserved nickname of Boomer early Yearling Year.

His genius at conversation made him an indispensable member of our nightly discussions. It was this genius coupled with his quiet efficiency and acute understand- ing of human nature which won him a host of friends during his stay at the Academy. This Hoosier lad, with his back- ground of college experience and Army service, found little difficulty in adapting himself to the new life which he has chosen. After ten months service as a G.I., Joe appeared at West Point on that vividly remembered first day of Beast Barracks. Throughout Plebe and Yearling Years his big problem was the French Department. Obviously, Joe was the victor in each bi- annual campaign. In the spring of ' 46, Joe was one of our minority who were old enough to be assigned to the three year course, but chose the four year path instead. This desire to forge ahead will prove of great value to both Joe and the Army.

Though rather reserved, Jack ' s frequent ofF-limits escapades as a Pine Camp Yearling definitely distinguished him as one of the boys — a recognition never fully appreciated by the T.D. An avid reader, J.B. engrossed himself in his books with a remarkably impervious concentration. Ready to tackle any task, however big. Jack volunteered for details his sack-happy classmates would classify as soirees. If Ted never possessed any other exceptional trait, the gen- erosity of his nature would be more than enough to make him outstanding. Always ready to help his classmates with any kind of favor, he has endeared himself to all who know him. Although quiet, Ted takes away from the Point a hearty sense of humor and friendly smile which will be sorely missed. The Rainbow Division lost him to the Academy four years ago, but the Army gets him back with the added dividends of four years of conscientious service. DOUGLAS T, HUIE Decatur, Alabama Sth Congressional French Club Sergeant 259 HURT Odessa, Texas 16th Congressional This Texan found Plebe Year very different from the carefree ranch life he had always known, but with the avid assistance of certain upperclassmen he made the necessary adjustment. When Plebe Year finally ended, his interests changed from eating and sleeping to dragging, gymnastics and all types of exercise. A goat by nature, he came to enjoy the congenial atmosphere of the lower sections. Blessed with a quiet and un- assuming manner but never at a loss when a laugh is appro- priate, Sam leaves a mark that will he hard to forget. RUFUS JOHNSTON HYMAN Memphis, Tennessee 12th Congressioniil With his Tennessee drawl and light blond hair, Rufe spent his free time either at the Boodlers or in the sack. In fact, he de- veloped the technique of using only the lower half of a bed to keep from unfolding the mattress. Although a victim of air sickness, he always travels by air. After pushing the Corps for two years in language, he hit his stride in juice and became a moderate hive. He was always going to the library, but was just as willing to go over to the gym and box.

Every Wednesday would find him working with new arrangements and songs with the dance band. He was always a popular man at a picnic or party, where the com- munity songs revolved about his guitar. Many Texans took lessons on how to play a Western guitar from this Brooklyn boy. Much of his spare time was used in practicing with the choir. His athletic activities included handball, skiing and skating, the latter earning him a part in our Plebe Carnival.

Forever extolling the virtues of God ' s country, from whence he came, he was always good for a touch, a bit of advice, or just plain sympathy. Jim ' s only regret was that West Point was not built beside a trout stream; aside from that, cadet life agreed quite well with him. He has always ranked high with his classmates as well as with the Academic Board. Combining the better talents of David Kean, P.T. Barnum and Clem McCarthy, Wesley is a person with a million ideas and a profound respect for the spoken word as a means of com- municating them. A born showman, he displayed congenital antipathy toward the slide rule but never failed to wind up the academic battle in the grand manner by leaving the turn- out exam early. Away from mathematical subjects, he showed original, often brilliant, understanding of human problems and a deep insight into human nature (including the occult feminine variety.)

Louie will probably best be remembered by all for making his decisions and following them through. He is the type of person you understand and like better the more you know him. Coming from a military family, no one doubts that Rees will prove as outstanding as those who preceded him. No matter what walk of life you enter, it will be hard to find a truer or more sincere friend than he. His friendliness, natural wit, good common sense, and keen sense of humor, coupled with a constant, impetuous readiness to do things out of the ordinary gave him a profound personality.

The ' rigors of a quiet week-end in the city or the unpredictability of women and the academic departments left him tired but determined to carry on in his friendly way. Although he was born in Australia, Bill is better known as a native of Boston. During Plebe Year, the upperclassman kept his mind occupied with other things than academics, but Yearling Year he worked his way up to being a star man and to coaching his goaty classmates. Although not an ardent athlete, Bill is interested in sports and especially enjoys hand- ball. His interests on the intellectual side include modern poetry, chess and the piano music of Debussy. Bill ' s easy going manner will serve him well in life. If the roar of motors starts your eardrums playing patty-cake, and the smell of pre-burned 100 octane sends your nasal cavity into a vertical dive, don ' t blame it on the Air Corps.

Four years before the mast served only to brighten these friend-making qualities. West Point ' s many problems never seemed to bother Jack. He was one who could take it or leave it alone. A past master of the repartee, many classrooms and barracks would have been dull without his presence. Jack brought to these fields of friendly strife a radiant enthusiasm and jovial sincerity that were reflected in the many friendships that he made. Jess seemed to always be in hot water here at the Academy. He was not only serving off his two slugs, but also dodging Tacs here and there on the Post to avoid further bouts with the T.D. His Navy pension financed many orgies at the boodlers — for classmates ' as well as his own appetite. Academics didn ' t stir his complacency too much, but he managed to keep " pro enough.

He has grown and grown in our eyes until now his is the counsel to be sought and his is the opinion to be heeded. Although his future may not be a cloudless sky, we all want to spend part of it with him. To hear Joe booming away in the sinks after taps on the next day ' s lessons, to engage with him in his beloved rat-races, to enjoy his violent and many twisters — all will long give us many happy thoughts of moments spent with this huge fun- loving flanker.

Under the veneer of a complacent Southerner lies a tremendous reserve of energy which burst forth every after- noon after his last class. As the Howitzer ' s Circulation Editor, and as Soccer Manager he became the center of frantic activity which plunged the room into turmoil approached only by that of a city desk.

Hours on his epics to the femmes and more hours devoted to preaching the glories of Virginia have filled his 1438 days. And Plebe Year? It never fazed him. Years at V.M.I, and U.S.M.A. developed his pessimism. He was never disappointed and was always ready to he pleasantly surprised. " Say, help me with this report, will you? " was one of the favorite questions asked of George. Sincerely conscientious, anxious to help, and top ranking in English, he was the one to ask. He demanded that things be done correctly and worked to see that those around him followed the same path. The Academic Department didn ' t bother him and neither did the T.D. (much), but those woeful Sunday nights and Mondays were a strain. George had the virtues of a man, yet was enough of a sinner to be a swell buddy.

As a result he had ample time to engage in athletics and was the backbone of many winning company intramural teams. His laugh was always a familiar sound in the hallways, for George never believed in the word dis- couragement. " At hops and picnics he was always in the foreground when fun was in the making. With his eyes in the sky, George has set his goal high and is moving toward it unerringly. On answering a call from barracks, the Fire Department found nothing more than a heavy cloud of black smoke emanating from a stogie clamped in the jaw of smiling Vin, who was dealing hands of five-card draw. This was slightly unusual, for generally the only times he could be hauled from the sack were for meals or to sing hillbilly songs in his Boston accent — and sometimes not even then. Known to hockey fans as The Nose, his aggressive play on the ice rink belied his usual happy-go-lucky manner.

That Arkansas left a definite impression on easy-going Grim was reflected by his casual manner, his constant readiness to expound the wonders of the Razorbacks and the time he spent writing that redhead.

Although the readjustment of Plebe Year was an especially hard task for him, he kept a bright outlook on life and adapted himself with an easy versatility to his new environment.

And if you should look again a little closer, to see a keen insight, a deep understanding and a genial spirit, why that ' s the way we saw him too. G-2 If the Powder River flowed through the Hills of Kerry, the cowboy Irishman might ride down the cobbles of old Killarney instead of the streets of old Cheyenne. His slouch is of the saddle, not of the books.

We will remember him for his defense of a slight Maine accent, the ease with which he separated mechanics from the pages of the text, and a cooperative nature which made him a pleasant companion. Amiable Bill, Boston accent considered, combines the attributes of a perfect friend and a true gentleman. A natural hive, he preferred concentrating his talents on taking away his wife ' s pro femme to winning collar decorations. His broad knowledge and sound judgment made Bill the leader of every debate and he constantly wound up on top. A love for the sack completely vanished with Saturday noon and a pro drag or a week-end in New York. Lawrence, West Point and his wives are rightfully proud of Bill; a great guy who ' s going places.

Under his studied air of indifference lie a serious- ness and an ability that cannot be hidden. " I ' ll do it for you " is the phrase which best typifies Mac ' s attitude. Despite frequent nocturnal prowls into halls and sinks, Mac always kept the cheerful countenance so valued by those who worked with him. At first the necessity of mak- ing formations on time was a shock to his methodical civilian ways; however, Mac and the Academy finally reached a work- ing agreement.

As further identification, look for an idealist with a steadfast personality gilded with a somewhat fiery temperament. Bob invariably attacks a task with an overpowering enthusiasm that invites success. True, he has absorbed his quota of soirees with apt and ofttimes bitter comment, but inevitably this reaction merely precedes a shrewd, optimistic evaluation and unre- served acceptance of the situation.

He scurried through academics with a minimum of difficulty, and he was always one step ahead of the T.D. His ability to develop interest in widely varied subjects, along with a ready smile, helped in the winning of many friends. All who know him have little doubt that his future contains success and a realization of ambition. The outstanding thing about Don is his remarkable collection of useful items and useful information. In fact, he is a born S-4. It was often remarked that Mac knew the what ' s, why ' s, when ' s and where ' s of cadet life. This, coupled with a good sense of humor, a cheerful disposition, and a ready wit made him a friend to all. Usually found behind a good book, a strong gambit, or parallel bars, he worked hard, studied well, and played clean. Here ' s to your future, Don; you will do well, we know. As a California Plebe, Mac was hard hit by the rigors of New York climate. Always the idealist, he soon made the most of his uncomfortable position. Being endowed with a natural bent for athletics, Mac found joy in the many sports available on the campus. Skiing, squash, sack; no sport was beyond his capabilities. Then too, at no time were the academic problems of cadetship too trying for Jim. He was quick to adopt the divine attitude, " If you can ' t spec it, ignore it. " Undaunted by man or beast there is no stopping this man McCuen. His tireless strength and energy matched with a keen executive ability have made him a key man on the Howitzer business staff. On an intramural ream, with a lacrosse stick in hand, or in a rat-race in barracks, Jack ' s drive and enthusiasm gained for him the nickname Steamboat.

If a statue of our Charlie were to adorn the fringes of the Plain, we observers would first note the refined ear for classical and semi-classical music, the nimble tongue for pithy wit, and the devilish grin that conceals his latent humor. Stretched forth in his hand would be a swinging saber which would chop huge portions of ice cream from a quart container and alter- nately, swipe at swarms of flies trying to settle on convenient facial features. Periodically Charlie ' s saber would return our salute of real friendship.

Since he can ' t drive a car under flying speed, he seems a cinch for the Air Corps. Although Don entered West Point with an accomplished dead pan and a room across the hall from his platoon leader, he survived Plebe Year with unusual success; and Yearling Year began his trials and tribulations with the lacrosse team. In fact, it will be in that uniform, rather than whites, that all of us will best remember him. For his unruffled steadiness, his unfailing good humor, and his calming influence on a certain Texas polo player, the Class of ' 48 will remember Don as an excellent example of a friend.

A man of simple tastes, Waldo ' s frank hearty manner will always serve him well in life. An ex-college student and Tank Destroyer soldier, Joe knew long ago how to make the most of his environment. It may have been the mountains in his part of Utah that gave him the idea that all man-made barriers were mere mole hills.

In the re- shuffle, Cupidon landed in M-Co, but claimed it was all a mis- take; however, it was obvious that the engineers had built Central Area too close to John ' s nose. Young John Cyrano rubbed elbows with the best of goats and stubbornly refuses to believe that parallel lines meet at infinity. His campaign of calculated apparent indifference fooled everyone but his closest friends. Black-John wanted more so he chose four. Bl. ck-John Cream always rises to the top, and so it was with Dick. His quiet unobtrusive manner coupled with the restrictions of Plebe Year brought him little recognition, but as time wore on, his true worth began to be known. Conscientious and hard- working, he was painstaking in every task, never counting one finished until it had been done thoroughly and completely. The Air Corps is his goal and there ' s no doubt that he ' ll succeed there just as he has here, proving once again that you can ' t hold a good man down. A modern Midas who touches nothing but success, O. C. has been a leader since the first day of Beast Barracks; an athlete, a scholar, and a ranker, all rolled into one. Oats has a theory about the healthful effects of sleeping that is easy to follow. He formed this sleeping habit in the Southland where he yearns to return. He is the foremost exponent of hayrides, which have spread his fame far and wide. His other interest is dreaming of the day when the sky will be his home.

Studying was always a task for Ronnie, but he accepted it as a necessary evil. He has the ability to adapt himself to his companions and his presence brings cheerfulness and in- formality into any gathering. A promising football prospect, Curly matriculated at the Academy expecting a spot on a Squad. Because of keen com- petition, he early realized that his gridiron aspirations would take a definite intramural twist. Recovering from this minor egotistical reverse, Bill was the rare personality Plebe who enjoyed every laugh he doled out to the upperclasses. The Munge cultivated his deep devotion to constructive bull- sessions and never failed to flavor them with his staunch, adamant Southern viewpoints. A semi-radical at heart.

This typical Texan will be remembered for his drawl and height as well as for his very short haircuts. Although Mort ' s father was a naval officer, he followed in the footsteps of his grandfather when he came to West Point. Mort occasionally yielded to the urge to sack, but he spent most of his free time wheeling in activities. Naturally, drag- ging filled the week-end gaps. As far as academics go, he be- lieved that the least effort brought the best results and, oddly enough, it seemed to work for him! He harbors secret ambi- tions in shooting and riding.

Truly ac- complished at avoiding difficulty with the Tactical Depart- ment, he maintained cadet life on an even plane that rarely occasioned a storm. Seldom seen at hops or the Boodlers, his chief regret was that there were not more weekend leaves. Neither books nor regulations changed his calm consideration of life, and the rigors of Army life failed to subdue the slow, subtle humor and easy-going nature that made friends so easily.

Nothing could be said against that fair state in his presence. With his keen wit and personality he was always welcome in any gathering. In the days to come, Okie will surely add more and more to this spirit of friendliness. Bill is the Corps ' most unexci table member. When rudely awakened at the one minute bell for reveille his reaction is, " Take it easy, there ' s plenty of time left. " It isn ' t lack of energy — the boy is just built in low gear. Although from Texas, Bill shuns the riding hall to avoid ruining his cowboy slouch with the approved Army riding seat. A typical Ocker- onian remark during the most difiicult academic work is, " I wish there was something to do around here. " And the guy is serious!

Photography and outside reading rounded out his curriculum, giving him a stable outlook on life. Having spent a year and a half in the Army before entering the Academy, he is well prepared for his post-graduate life. Success is inevitable for him because of his inherent ability and driving force. Every company needs an inspiring leader to guide it through the major and minor crises — for A-2, Jack was that man. If you try to infuriate him, he will say " Aw, pshaw " and grin. Although never very hivey. Jack always stayed pro, often having to resort to the hallway lights after taps. Athletics were different from academics to him, for he was an enthusiastic spectator and an able participant in nearly every sports ac- tivity.

Naturally soft-spoken, Don first attracted attention early in Beast Barracks, not by words, but by a very audible and most expressive whistle directed at a First Classman wearing whites. His mild and friendly manner is not indicative of weakness, a fact well-known to those who met this ex-C Squad fighter as a boxing partner. Always even-tempered, he met every cadet soiree with an easy smile. Endowed with more assets and fewer liabilities than is usual in an Army brat. Bill met West Point with a keen sense of values and a ready wit. Not even Plebe Year could keep him down for long. His sense of humor soon began to lighten days that looked grayer than usual. Before long the whole Corps could laugh at themselves in the cartoons that he drew. An anti-socialite, Bill looked upon hops and such as hardly necessary evils. The Infantry is getting a solid family man and a great guy.

Quick of wit but slow of academic mind, it took him two years to discover that studying was just a painful diversion from his avid pursuit of the " Saturday Evening Post.

One of the best known men of the guinea pig class of ' 48, Pete was a driving force behind the General Committee. His caus tic wit was a source of amusement among his cronies and helped keep the E.G.

His common sense and flare for organization were displayed in his many famous deals — feminine, financial, or otherwise. In football and all other games, of which he was very fond, we found him a leader with plenty of drive. J. C. came to West Point after two years in the Army Ordnance and promptly began his two favorite activities — studying and sacking. John always stood close to the top of his class and was always willing to help a goat in trouble. A firm believer in the Plebe System, he always set an example well above average. Whatever he undertook, he did well; he could always be counted on. When things were tough, J.C. ' s humor made them seem brighter. These qualities cannot fail to insure his success in the Army.

A typical evening in barracks would find Saul deeply absorbed in reading with his legs on the desk and silent wreaths of smoke curling from one of his many pipes. This picture would not, however, be complete without the inclusion of the radio ' s soft playing. Because of a rather advanced educational back- ground gained prior to entrance, Saul has been continuously absorbing considerable extracurricular knowledge in varied subjects. Having demonstrated an unruffled composure in all situations, he has taken the academics as well as his occasional bouts with the T.D. in easy stride. Don joined the Corps after duty in the Army at Fort Eustis, Greensboro, and the USMA Prep at Lafayette College. He remains unsurpassed as a teller of tall tales and constantly exacts the utmost from his repertoire of jokes.

Although very adept in carrying on the vaudeville tradition in the manner of Al Jolson, and in acting with the pompousness of Orson Welles, his rendition of " The Shooting of Dan McGrew " will be long remembered. Believing firmly in the theory that studying goes easier be- tween breakfast and first hour class, our Rosey spent the eve- nings resting his eyes. Put into the class of ' 48 by age, he gave us one more year of laughs and fun. " Like father, like son " is a time tested saying, and Tenney is the exception that proves the rule. An Engineer brat, whose ancestry runs back through several generations of West Point- ers, his face has been seen in the best of the lower sections during his four years at the Academy. It is therefore not likely that the Corps of Engineers will receive another Ross when Tenney graduates, because, although turned out but once, he has never allowed his academic efforts to place too heavy a strain on his mental capacity. 308 G-1 Tenney Track 4-2 Lacrosse Cross Country 2 Swimming Monogram Water Polo Club Chapel Choir 4-3-2-1 Corporal Election Committee 2 Lieutenant General Committee 2-1 Corporal 3-2 First Sergeant 1 C-1 4 2 4-3-2-1 3-2 1 ipjivntJ I was so m (kuclun wkiliH c (onctntrat sinctni) ' I EDWIN A.

These characteristics, along with his deadbeat Plebe Year in the Sj th, notorious bridge playing and insignia-bedecked B-robe have been the subjects of many B.S. sessions.

That same good natured spirit, coupled with superior athletic ability, has made him a mainstay on company teams in almost every sport. Young when he entered the Academy, he had no easy time with academics; yet his sound thinking and level-headedness made his opinion on any subject worth hearing. An Irishman who excels at droll humor, has a wealth of ideas, and the savoir-faire with which to execute them, Bill ' s personality and inherent ability will always be remembered by his class- mates. Sandy ' s swimming ability often leads one to believe that his mother was frightened by a seal, but besides his aquatic idiosyncrasies, he will long be remembered by a multitude of buddies for his personality and loyalty. All who came in con- tact with him admired him for his unoffensive eagerness, but that never dampened his love for a practical joke or a good old fashioned rat-race.

If it wasn ' t tap dancing or his accordion, it was a catchy little song from his endless repertoire that tried the nerves of his roommates. Academics meant little more to Sarg than an obstacle to be crossed with the least possible effort. The time so salvaged he spent in his profitable home factory toiling tirelessly away on his " Little Men. ' " ! h Philosophy is a deep and interesting subject, even though it is difficult to understand. Such a description suits Rod also, for only through listening to his ideas on life is it possible to see him as he really is. His dreams and his fixed opinions closely parallel each other, pointing to a goal he is most certain to reach. What is that goal? At this stage of life, no one can tell, but be it dude ranch, used cars or the Army, Rod will be eriving happiness from his work. I " For showing excessive exuberance of Youth, " read one of Lou ' s Plebe reports. This exuberance, not a Plebe virtue, is definitely an asset and a key to Lou ' s personality. His likes he expresses with wholesome enthusiasm; his dislikes, with pro- nounced (but not malignant) condemnation. In spite of his forwardness, we usually find him relaxed and easy going, and he is always good company. He parallels his personal traits |- when playing soccer: relaxed when the ball is out of play, speedy when it is in play, and always an excellent player. ' Twas in the early 40 ' s that W.F.S. wandered from a tranquil " Missour-a " home into Army life and thence unsuspectingly through the portals of Plebe Year. Interest in any and all forms of athletics and a truly congenial nature fostered him through his cadet career. Three years of softball established his reputa- tion as the Corps ' finest hurler in that sport. Recognizing talent, the War Department " granted " Schlee-es an extra year prolonging his contract to four. Of all these four it may well be said, " Glad to have you aboard.

Some of these activities, the highly successful Sailing Team and the 1946 Navy game Battleship vs. Tank display, were created out of Carl ' s active imagination and carried out by his boundless energy and steaming initiative.

Possessing a fine mind and astounding versatility, Trav found time to become an outstanding athlete, to complete a comprehensive survey of the fiction section of the Post Library and by good nature to tame the orneriest roommates in the Corps. Jim Tuthill iH aJ ffe oit out better potential athleteS those several jugular folds. Unfortunately, no one could con- vince him of the fact. The last two years he majored in the sack. Funny thing, he always managed to stay on the ball in everything he did. His military proficiency was well witnessed by the fact that his name spread terror among the Plebes, but his outstanding feature was his social proficiency. Never did a man drag so conscientiously as did the old 1-2 hop manager. Tut wasn ' t called Van Johnson for nothing.

A line athlete, Tom guarded the Army ' s soccer goal for three years and was twice named All-American. When not on the athletic field or in the gym, he could usually be found coaching a goat through a tough writ; Tom ' s stars gleamed his qualifications in that line. Years to come will never change his friendliness or flanker spirit, and the many tasks ahead will be met and conquered by his winning nature and sincere desire to do the job well. Buffalo Bill Van Arsdall, the cowboy gladhander, stormed into our midst with six-shooters blazing. Never did those 44 ' s of his have a chance to cool off, because this combination actor, writer, and playboy kept them working overtime. In fact he galloped around so fast that even though he started as a flanker, he crossed the finish line as a runt. Truly a rollicking son of Bacchus, Van was the life of every week-end party. Thanks, V.A., for 1438 days of songs and jokes.

Since then, troubles have beset him with truly dread regularity. He has had his ups and downs— scores of long- forgotten loves, police calls, and French writs; but he has always emerged with his hide. The ear-splitting whine of his model airplane motors will always echo. Famed for opening books only to inscribe his name therein, Van has redeemed himself by carving his name into the fields of friendly strife; he definitely leaves his mark at West Point. Bouncing Bud, the Flying Dutchman hailing from Jersey, entered USMA after having had a preview of the highlights of Plebe Year as a hasher in the local haven of culinary atrocities. The proximity of this urbane easterner ' s home grounds resulted in a constant supply of drags for himself and a good many of his classmates. A crew cut and a broad, toothy smile were the distinguishing features of this busy Dutch boy whose winning ways did much to bleach the dark clouds of four long years of monastic life.

Council Bluffs, Iowa 1th Congressional JOHN GARNETT WAGGENER Charleston, Missouri IQth Congressional Have you ever seen him angry or discontented? No! Well, that ' s just John. Always in a flurry of activity, J. B. couldn ' t sit still until a job was well done. John displayed at West Point all of the qualities of an all-around, all-the-time man who always had some new big deal which he could invariably talk you into. Because of his genuine good nature, John could make friends, impress his superiors, and readily adjust himself to any environment or situation with the ease and initiative of an ideal West Pointer. A " Show-me " by right, when once shown, Jack not only understood but remembered. This was a boon to his less academically inclined classmates. Whether he got his muck from catching Mississippi catfish from the Missouri shore and riding Missouri mules, or saved it by sacking, we never knew, but having him on your team during the frequent trips to the gym had its benefits. Following his motto of " Everything in moderation, nothing in excess, " he moved easily through our four year sojourn at the monastery to make himself a round wheel.

Bud gives every task his incessant attention and a natural ability which means a job well done. An all-around athlete and man, Bud ' s fine sense of humor and innate sincerity give him a host of friends. A dreamer and an idealist, his pipe dreams are sure to materialize with lots of success and happi- ness in the future. The reat-pleated general with the drape-shape you ' ll see skat- ing around Smith Rink in 1990 will probably be our own Jim Walk, since those who apply themselves usually hit the target for which they aim. Since Jim ' s a skeet shooter, his aim should be good. Delighted at being an Army brat, Jim settled down to make his life at the Academy an interesting one. With his camera, skates, skis, and lovels, the task wasn ' t difficult. Part English, this pipe smoker was always ready for a laugh and a lasting friendship.

The post brats who have learned in his Sunday School class never to veer from the straight and narrow can attest to Walt ' s patience and sense of humor. This same patience was carried to the riding hall where the horses often felt Walt ' s gentle tug on the reins. We ' ll long remember this unassuming lad who made good . Many were the nights when Lyle ' s beaming face would poke through the door with " Anybody want to play bridge? " Since he was not a draggoid, most of his leisure time at West Point was spent at the bridge table, with frequent dissertations on the latest rumors, while most of his New York week-ends were spent taking in the latest Broadway productions. But not all his efforts were directed towards playing. Ever delight- ing in a chance to excel, Lyle may always be depended upon to do a job well and in detail.

Bur Head came via the Army and the streets of Chillicothe where he had obviously been badly bruised in a local fracas and still suffered from the ill effects. He set his brawn to work realizing the ideals of this institution, bumped heads with the best of footballers, and threw tons of leather at Army ' s best boxers.

Despite the austerity of the West Point system, there is nothing stiff, formal, or artificial in Dick; rather, there is a genuine friendliness, a boyish grin, a Carolina accent, and a mannerism that immediately makes everyone feel at ease. No textbook student, Dick ' s bearing, wit, and common sense place him high among his book-grinding classmates; under- neath we find a sincere and serious nature. Well-rounded, this ladies ' man is a perfect combination for the Army and for society.

John outdid himself and was a gentleman long before graduation. His delight in evening call to quarter ' s visits cost him many demerits, but it developed a friendship with his classmates that he considered well worth the cost. To most of us, " Gentlemen, this is a horse, " was as far into the subject as we cared to go, but John loved the equestrian habit and that love brought skill that made his riding an art. Swoosh! There goes Paul! The only man ever known to have footprints on the ceiling of his room, he has stormed and twisted through four years of do or die for Alma Usmay. Coming to us from the Three-I League, Paul brought not only threescore Arthur Murray routines, but also a mile-wide grin and a sparkling Sigma Chi pin. Our foremost proponent of physical culture, he dominated the square circle and altered many pleasant profiles. His good nature and indomitable spirit will always keep him close to us in the future. Swoosh! In Squeak, the Infantry gets a born leader. Wasn ' t he leading when, in Beast Barracks, he received the first slug awarded? He also led in Tactics, falling hair, and lost women; when a storm arose he was the first man in it; when furlo started he was the first man out of the area. His amazing powers of concentration made him hard to live with: when he studied, it was intensely; when he loved, he soared; when he played, he reveled. As a friend, he was the same — everlasting.

While maintaining a good academic record, Dick never abandoned his interests in the fields of music and sports, especially figure skating. His reputation as a figure skater was well known, and few were the winter week-ends that Dick was not skating at Smith Rink. Dick will be remembered as an enjoyable companion and a fellow with a quiet sense of humor and an affable manner that won him many friends. Fresh from three weeks on the sun-kissed beaches of Southern California, this Army brat came to West Point a confirmed native son, quick to further the cause of the Carmel Chamber of Commerce. A self-made college man after a year at Georgia Tech, Ed arrived with a thorough knowledge of all things collegiate, including a little academic learning. After making 30.0 on the mechanics thesis problem, he decided he had be- come a success, and devoted the rest of his cadet career to week-ends in the city.

He has often exhibited his cheerful attitude by executing his version of the Highland Fling on his way to class. His qualities of clear thinking and serious work- ing were confirmed when he was elected honor representative. Although he grounded himself solidly in academics, he was never too busy to always maintain at least one One And Only. This man will be always in demand for his good sense, witti- ness and cheerful personality. " Who ' s going to the Boodlers? " rang through the division, and close on its heels came Whitey with an order for a pint of " anything with chocolate in it. " This walking appetite in human form found an outlet for all his calories in the myriad of activities in which he was constantly embroiled. A latent hivyness that barely missed the ranks of star men gave him plenty of time to devote his energies to these outside interests, and his sharp, dry wit brought many chuckles when they were most needed.

Never excitable or flashy, Whit is the consistent, likable, and tireless plugger who cannot help succeeding. ARTHUR LANGLEY WHITLEY Washington, D. C. Presidential A widely traveled Army brat, Al comes to us with an up- bringing of the old military school. A studious year at Prince- ton and a mastery of the slide rule developed Al into a first rate engineer and a connoisseur of proportional parts. At times perhaps a little difficult to convince, Whit nevertheless de- veloped a keen sense of humor and a broader aspect toward life. Because of his inspired enthusiasm for technical subjects, Whit will undoubtedly be the constructional brain behind many of Uncle Sam " s engineering projects of the future.

Exercises after taps on the alcove rail and routines on apparatus at the gymnasium produced an appetite that amazed even his flanker friends. One of his best tricks was keeping a pleasant disposition at reveille. Phil believes and lives a religion which has made each new day more en- joyable for everyone who knows him. This man reached maturity too soon and for him there were no soft, easy days of growing into an unquestioning ac- ceptance of life ' s mediocre standards. Instead he possesses, as few men do, a restlessness which leaves him dissatisfied with pat solutions of thought and action — a restlessness which drives him to explore all fields of experience. Though he is relentless and intolerant of himself when striving for a goal. Bill will never fail to understand the problems and weaknesses of others; his courage will strengthen them too.

Regardless of these activities, he still managed to turn out a fairly good record for himself in his scholastic endeavors, without neglecting that ever important social life. With a personality like yours, Glenn, you will always have the same constant friends you now have in the Class of ' 48. The only man in the world who could drive his roommates into the hall coughing and gasping for air on a perfectly clear day was this ardent enthusiast of the gas powered model air- plane. Besides being an expert with midget motors, which could produce tremendous quantities of carbon monoxide, this birdman came completely equipped with a private pilot ' s license. His favoritism toward everything connected with flying was exceeded only by his ability to store away astonish- ing amounts of boodle after having consumed enough for five men during the average meal.

Although he didn ' t succeed in revamping either the Tactical or Academic Departments, they were equally un- successful in breaking Wally, despite the fact that the German Department made its famous try. Good looks (see cut) and a cordial personality proved no handicap as he applied himself with energy to absorbing his education and rotating in the week-end social whirl. West Point has considerably cooled Odell ' s hot Southern blood, but has failed to affect his friendly smile and genial personality. Gifted with natural musical ability, Willie always led the after taps musicals. By hard work and con- centration he has always kept several jumps ahead of the Academic Department. As a lover without luck, a party man, or as one who cannot do enough for his friends, Willie is out- standing. His ability to apply himself to work or play makes him welcome in any gathering and forecasts his future success.

It ' s too hard to give any specific data on the years J.K. spent here; it has all been so mixed up with women, police calls, athletics, more women, . . . etc. Academics never en- tered J.K.

High-bar Charlie, fresh from the Class of ' 46, fooled most of us when he joined us at the end of Plebe Year wearing a Yearling corporal ' s coat; but he went ahead, despite this obstacle, to prove hims elf as a Yearling and Cow buck. He often distinguished himself: by breaking both thumbs as he did a flip into the gym floor, and again by instigating a scientific experiment to abolish sleep. He was particularly re- nowned for his cheerful statement, " Why, we get paid $0.07 an hour — even while sleeping. " The very scratched and marred appearance of Stu ' s desk top was not the work of termites or woodpeckers, but the result of a beating administered by this poor man ' s Krupa who kept a pair of drum sticks in his desk so as to have them constantly at hand.

Keeping a great Aviation Tradition From three great pioneers of hea ier-than-air flying. Glenn H. Curliss and the Wright Brothers — Curtiss- Wright derives both its name and its tradition of long- range planning and research. Long-range planning and research preceded the world ' s first sitccessjiil motorized flight by the Wright Brothers on December 17, 1903 in a Wright plane powered by a Wright engine . . . preceded, too, the first official flight ever recorded in the United States . . . made in 1908 in a plane designed, powered and piloted by Glenn Curtiss. In the same pioneering spirit of these great founders of modern aviation . . . but with far greater research and experimental facilities at their command . . . Curtiss-Wright engineers evolved airplanes, engines and propellers that saw action in every combat theater in the world during the war . . . and today fly on many leading commercial airlines. Todav. continuing research and development at Curtiss-Wright are evolving planes, engines and pro- pellers that will keep the names Curtiss and Wright FIRST IN FLIGHT as they have for 45 years.

Impossible? It was done by televi- sion, when RCA dcmonsti ' ated — to a congress of surgeons— how effective this medium can be in teaching surgery. In a New York hospital, above an op- erating table, a supersensitive RCA Image Orthicon television camera televised a series of operations. Lighting was normal. Images were transmitted on a narrow, RCA — For 27 Years the Fountainhead line-of-sight beam ... As the pictures were seen the operating surgeons were heard explaining their techniques . . . The beam was picked up at a mid- town hotel — carried to RCA Victor television receivers. And on the video screens, visiting surgeons followed each delicate step of surgical procedure. Ac- tion was sharp and clear. Each surgeon was as " close-up " as if he were actually beside the operating table. Said a prominent surgeon: " Televi- sion as a wav of teaching surgery sur- of Electronic Research and Engineering passes anything we have e er had ... I never imagined it could be so effective until I actually saw it ... " RCA television is a spectacular ac- complishment . . . made possible by long research and brilliant engineering. It is well to keep in mind the fact that the men and facilities responsiljle for RCA television also back up the per- formance of all RCA communications and electronic navigation equipment . . . afloat and ashore.
