The best rally, by far, was the one which featured Bing Crosby ' s famous golf partner. With spirits high we again left for the Big City. For 60 endless minutes the battle of the century raged up and down ankee Sta- dium as the Big Rabble tried to carry the ball into the end zone — but to no avail.

Winter winds swept across the Area and chilled tired Plebes struggling through the snow to ranks, to classes, and to the Gym. The monotony was broken only bv weekend movies, ath- letic events, and all-too-infrequent sessions of sack time. a Plebe, a sure sign of Spring is the terrible shock of the annual Spring Buck- up. But things looked brighter because the end was in sight. Spring Vacation brought another hop, and melting snows opened the trail to Fort Put. Intermurder, F.D. pa- rades, and WGR ' s kept everyone busy until June Week. 40 Aren ' t tlicv piptty? »T1 r r •V : rr I RECOGNITION During June Week, as Firsties, Cows, and Yearlings made the daily trek to Dela- puddle with bathing suits in hand, we trekked off to the golf course with buckets in hand. Rocks were in season and we were chosen to pick them. Moving packing boxes and foot lockers from one trunk room to another helped to keep us in top physical condition. One of the sadder moments of June Week occurred when the " Turnout " list was read from the poopdeck while we were engaged in cleaning up the Mess Hall. Besides these pleasant activities, F.D. pa- rades with their accompanying storms, so- cial visits to our squad leader ' s room, and barracks guard occupied the remainder of our time. When one of our more audacious classmates sounded off with. " Sir, there are five minutes until all this stuff comes to a screeching halt. The uniform is the same as it ' s been all week, " we knew that Plebe year was over. So near and yet so far!

There was one catch — they expected us to work part of the day. But when the work was done there was a rush to participate in the many activities — afternoons on the beach, concerts at Chapel Point, and picnics around the lake. In addition, all-white hops were held every weekend. The work itself was interesting. We soon learned to put up a good bridge. While the hives figured the stress and strain, the goats by practical work figured out how many sleeping cadets the bridge would hold. We gained a working knowledge of the Field Artillery. To be sure, the Queen of Battles was not forgotten. We charged enemy villages, and strived to make expert on the range. We found out the horse Cavalry was still a part of the Army, and the Quartermaster Corps was all home- made ice cream and one-day laundries.

" Beyond Glory " was filmed, partly at least, in Cen- tral Area, and always crowds of curious cadets could be found telling Allan Ladd what Plebe ear was really like. After Hollywood had gone, we settled down into the old routine again. November brought the annual trip to Philadelphia and this time a decisive victory (Army 21, Navy 0). Although we enjoyed Plebe Christmas, it could not compare with Christmas at home. To our great surprise we discovered that 26 inches of snow covered the Academv when we returned, but thanks (we really don ' t mean this) to the efficiency of the Engineer Detachment ' s snowplows the Area was cleared in time for the band-box review the following Saturday. We found the Physical Ed Department wasn ' t through with us — more grunt and groan in the wrestling room. First hundred blocks are the hardest 47 Guides for hire l f .

But no matter how deep the snow the Fred Astaire ' s of our class managed to struggle to the hops. From the time we returned from Christmas leave we had set our sights on Spring Vaca- tion. All too soon those three glorious days became pleasant memory, but June Week quickly arrived. A week of dragging, fol- lowed by our second rehearsal, completed yearling year. 48 CORPS I Traveling first class As the Eastern seaboard eclioed to the roar of fifteen C-47 and C-82 " Luxury Liners, " the class of ' 50 began a four week sojourn with the Air Force. At Langley AFB, in Virginia, we received our first ghmpse of the operation of a typical Air Force Base. The time was well spent as we attended many lectures, inspected different aircraft which were shown in action at an air show that completed our stay. 50 TRIP (I li„ sho,,.,l me? Then with the cries of Geronimo we in- vaded the home of the 82nd Air Borne Divi- sion at Fort Bragg, N. C. Jumps from the 40 foot mock up tower, gHder rides, " hit- ting the ground for ten, " and a final battalion jump demonstration kept us busy during our four day stay. It must also be mentioned that the social activity here was not lacking and the class was never too weary to do a little stepping out. 51 Flviii i hiimi 3 Mrn on (I I ' liiric Don ' f hire it — spec il After Bragg we paused at Greenville, S. C, long enough to get an insight of the inner workings and hidden mechanisms of the aircraft warning system. Then at Shaw Air Force Base we were entertained hy the Fighter Wing, and various honey-throated gals. The free time here was spent mainly alongside a dimly lit swimming pool. Again we moved, this time to Eglin Field, Florida, where the highlight was a tremendous show of air power comjilete with the B-36. . Oiirl V Our last stop was McDill Field, Florida, where we observed air-sea rescue and played the one-armed bandit in the officers ' club. During the whole trip we enjoyed the many facilities of the post not to mention the open air dances at the different clubs. All along the way we were met with open arms — literally — and became acquainted with Lighter moments Extra instruction the tradition of Southern hospitality. De- spite previous warnings from all directions, the Northerners succundied gladlv to the beautiful, coy " you-alls. " 53 The ncces.ilir. oj lijv Bidding a sad farewell to the Tactical De- partment, we set sail down the Hudson aboard the Army transport " General Sul- tan. " Our destination was Little Creek, Virginia. Three weeks of extensive and in- tensive training along with the Middies toughened us for our 0-day amphibious assault on the beaches at Camp Pendleton. Climbing down cargo nets at dawn, we circled two hours in the landing craft (Ulp!), then " Hit the beach! " The af ter- noon was spent digging in, the monotony being broken by a clandestine swim for many in the surf. As night came we began moving out towards the enemy and gun fire could be heard most of the night — from Marine guns — as cadet patrol met marine patrol, and the sound effects records filled in where the real gunfire left off. With the dawn came the buses and 700 " bleary " cadets returned to Little Creek dirtier for it all. All. ' Rf alls fur breakfast cow ACTIVITY Suntanned and refreshed from our vacation in Florida we returned to our winter home on the Hudson and began our Junior year. Two stripes on the sleeve meant two week- ends, but we were soon informed that it also meant further duties as " Charge of Quarters. " The Academic Dept. revealed their new ' secret weapons when we stepped into our first mechanics, electricity, and geography classes. Navy managed to tie, 21-21 ... we still claim it was the turkey.

The exchange trips were instructive as well as entertaining. The middies took us to class with them, to meals and to the hops. In all, we got a good picture of just what the Naval Academy was like, and were impressed with the size of Bancroft Hall as well as confused by the labyrinth of corridors . . . er, passageways. The net results were pals, slugs, and a much deeper understanding. 58 50 SeU The end was in sigh, and " SO " P ' eporedfor,he,as,,ap.Re. »Pons.binHes and p,.J,,;, -e hand .n Hand. THeS ' ah 1 .

But we landed safely at Wright Field, Ohio, and there saw s ome of the newest creations of the Air Force. Splinter Village didn ' t keep us long, and we were soon on the road to Texas. Here the Spanish students did themselves up proud visiting Juarez, with the common phrase between Cadet and hawker being ' Match for doubla nothing.

After hunting for a map to find our way to meals, we were ready for work.

Their first expression of confusion was soon replaced by more confusion as familiar phrases of " Sir New Cadet Ducrot reports for the sixth time ... " rang out across the area. For us it was a series of committees, lesson plans, dry runs and lectures to the Class of ' 53. There was off duty recreation such as Delapuddle, movies, hops and the bath formations. The temperature was sur- passed only by the humidity. A weekend in New York was a welcome relief from the daily grind. Throughout the four week period there was the happy thought that leave wasn ' t far off.

After getting our own equipment straightened out we descended on the Plebes in the traditional fashion. The 1st detail had done well, but we polished off the rough edges, instructed them in the basic techniques of soldiering, and prepared them for their place in the Corps. It was, we found, hard work but an Ciingu Dill and clientele occasional weekend leave and a few trips to Delapuddle helped to relieve the situation. On the Plebe hike we had a chance to see the results of our instruction. Mornings the Plebes pitched in, and did a good job; afternoons we spent swimming or engaged in different sports. A night march and an early morning boat ride brought us home and Beast Barracks for ' 53 (and ' 50) was finished. 67 BUCKNER DETAIL ' 50, a class of radar experts One hundred and forty of the Class of ' 50 were detailed to Buckner for duty as in- structors. We moved into our barracks (cold showers again — but no reveille) and began work. We were divided into two com- panies and detailed for five week periods instructing in the Infantry, Artillerv, Caval- ry, Engineers, Transportation Corps, and Signal Corps training programs. In addi- tion, some of the detail were assigned primary duty as assistant staff officers in camp headquarters. But Buckner provided a whole lot more than work; there was more leisure time and recreation than the members of the class had ever enjoyed be- fore at West Point. The successful opera- tion of the Buckner Stakes at the end of August marked the conclusion of the camp, and an enjoyable association of the classes of " 50 and ' 52; enjoyable for both, and profitable for both professionally. - i L (T here did the stray ruand Bo?

Ilifh? 68 Springing from its beginning in ' 48, the concept of cadets acting as Second Lieu- tenants in Recruit Companies of Replace- ment Training Depots branched out to groups at Fort Dix, N. J., Camp Chaffee, Ark., Fort Knox, Ky., and Lackland AFB, Texas. These groups, a cross-section of the class, were allowed to choose their places of assignment and entered into the rigors of Recruit Training with a spirit typified by enthusiasm and initiative. Judging from performance reports the " blackbelts, " as they were called, certainly maintained the standards of the Corps in all respects. At work and at play it was a welcomed oppor- tunity to get a before-hand glimpse of Army life. 70 Dominate it, John : -f 71 RING WEEK END Mine ' s prettier ' u ymirs Oh, it ' s nothing, rvull Next to Graduation Day, September 17th, 1949, was probably the happiest 24 hours as kadets. That afternoon we gathered in CuUuin Hall, heard a congratulatory mes- sage from General Moore, and then re- ceived our " crass mass of brass and glass " from the Tacs. The " sluggoids " were even allowed a reprieve for the big event. At the hop that evening in the gaily decorated Cullum, the femmes looked more beautiful than ever. Some of them also received a ring for the third finger, left hand: in the privacy of Flirty. The strains of " " " Army Blue " ended a day that marked a mile post in our careers. I A moment to remember Four on a fence ICHIGAN WEEKEND Filling the Yost Memorial Stadium with cheers, we watched the big rabble take the Wolverines in stride, defeating them 21-7. After the game the men from Michigan showed their good sportsmanship, taking us into their parties and dances, showing everyone a wonderful time. With the spirit and determination that had built up since September, we again met the men from the Severn: the team rolled up the widest margin of points since the series began — 38-0! The celebrating in Philadelphia that evening wasn ' t cut short even when we climbed aboard for the long trip home. S C R E B A R ARMY .

Those who were getting married wandered around with their heads in the clouds, while the bachelors still tried to explain that it was economically un- sound to take such a step. We dragged to the sports events to include the Intermurder Mulch on extras Championships, and left our dates only long enough to attend parades and other such formations. There were parades for all occa- sions — athletic awards, academic awards, graduation parade (this one we enjoyed and a few extra parades on the house. We participated in the Alumni Services, and watched the old Grads in their impressive ceremony. Somehow the packing was crowd- ed in. Although we enjoyed the dances, picnics and other social activities, the " Big Event " was yet to come. ' (Si ; i: " " » ► i ' • YIP-PEE! June 6, 1950! We were proud of the four years that lay behmd us and anxious to begin our careers as officers. The last reveille was endured under the protective covering of a brown boy, wrapped Indian style. The last mile to the Field House, joyfully tramped, brought the applause, the music, and the long speeches were nervously lis- tened to until, at last, that little roll of parchment was in our hands. White caps flew high in the air, cheers rang loud in our ears, and the fateful figure Johnny Shave- tail, took the place of Johnny Ducrot in the annals of the Class of ' 50. il 80 SIDNEY R.

Eisenhower re- ferred when he said, " West Point " s unique and most important contribution to the American Army has been an unimpeach- able standard of duty. " Although a sense of duty is an abstract characteristic and difficult to define, the charter of the Duty Committee states " A sense of duty in- volves the recognition of ones responsi- bilities and the execution of these obliga- tions to the best of one ' s ability. " Through lectures and informal talks the C ommittee has placed duty upon the same high level as honor. 378 As the represtMitatives of llie Corps and more importantly, the Class of 1950. the members of the General Committee were constantly overwhehned with such jirob- lems as " more weekends, " " the ever- troubling laundry, " and the most famous, " our cars. " They worked constantly with the Tactical Department in an attempt to please their constituents and their efforts have been particularly evident in the many privileges granted. Now that the year is at an end they may proudly say, " Never has so much been attempted by so few for so many. " Wa om-r { Hiiilrmnn) Genera Committee 1st Row: Bashore.

Those " people " with the red sashes remem- ber well the days of fighting with decora- tions for plebe Christmas and their first few cadet hops, alone. Out over the lake at Buckner each weekend hops meant whites and as always, OAO ' s and otherwise. Many close friends were made by arranging blind dates under the moonlight on our summer trips. Finally June 5th and Graduation Hop came. They found great pleasure in working with Mrs. " B " and Mrs. " G " ' and in being a part of the Class of ' 50. Thomas (Chairman) Mrs. Gates and Mrs. Barth (Cadet Hostesses) ' t ho did the deed? Naturally enough, it was the quintet of class " characters " — Mc- Crane, Heit, Peltz, Trefry, and Kelley — who put their heads together one fine day in June 1949 and hatched the plot of " All ' s WeU That Ends, " ' the 1950 version of 100th Night. This annual bit of dialectic nonsense (this year they chased " Slidemorc " girls) was released to the public on March 10th and 11th, with wild spontaneous applause to gratify the hearts of those who had worked to make the show a success — the authors and directors, the hammer and saw boys backstage, the actors and actresses, and the money changers who sold tickets and put out the excellent program. The pictures on these pages tell only part of the story, how ever — the other part was the aura of good feeling which pervaded West Point, marking a wonderful weekend and signaling a renewed vigor and accuracy in the count- ing of The 100 Remaining Days. Program Committee A grateful thank-you to Lowe and W hittemorc " Your Pleasure Is Our Business " has long been the motto of the Cadet Special Pro- gram Committee. With this sole object in mind, the members of the committee have brought to West Point a vari ety of enter- tainers from the world of bright lights, Broadway, and the concert stage. Few Sun- day evenings passed without a packed theatre to laugh at the antics of the Lamb Chops, listen to the songs of the Cossack 386 i ' Evening Entertainment Chorus, or rave for more of the hot jazz from Eddie Condon as well as the manv others who have added a few moments of glow to gloom period. Behind the scenes were the members who handled publicity, kept the accounts and balanced the books, did the many jobs that are a must in any produc- tion, and the most pleasant task of escort- ing the visitors. To Chuck Hammond and the entire committee goes much apprecia- tion for many evenings of Special Programs. 387 the HOWITZER StJ 1 V I WW ! Lt. Col. T. H. Aiulrews (Ojficer-in-Cbargp) V| iiiann (Editor) After 15 fleeting months of planning, com- posing, and proofreading, the 1950 Howitzer is at last a reality. Everyone concerned has given abundantly of their " slumber, sweat and units " in order that the 1950 Howitzer might be the best ever. Credit for the finished product is due to the Editor, Art Apmann, who did a splendid job of coordi- nating the various aspects of the book into a closely knit, smoothly running organiza- tion and to all of his staff members. The Managing Editor, Ward Wheaton. and the Associate Editor, Chuck Graham, deserve much praise for the efficient way in which thev handled the copy and the excellent job they did of coordinating with the section editors. Laurie Eek, Grady Banister, and the rest of the camera bugs were completely successful in shutterbugging the corps. E. V.

Then we must not forget Lennie Wegner and the creative work that his staff did for us. Holding the money bags all year and doing an excellent job we have Chuck Eshelman. Without him and his staff the 1950 Howitzer could never have gone to press.

It does however, fit into a definite niche in the West Point " scheme of things, " ' in that it presents an opportune medium of creative expression for the men of the Corps. It also presents a vivid picture of the men who make up the Corps, and because of its global circulation, it places this pic- ture of the future Officer Corps before the eyes of the world. The Pointer holds a trust. 393 Bugle Notes Bugle Notes, the handbook of the Corps of Cadets, is pubhshed each year so as to en- able the members of the Corps to have a collection of the history and facts concern- ing the Academy and the services.

To the Corps the orchestra brought such highlights as Friday night concerts in the dining hall to add a pleasant touch to gloom period, Sun- day afternoon sessions in the theatre before the movies, and their always welcomed renditions at the hops on Saturday nights. At all times these men played a tremendous part in lifting the spirit of the Corps.

Their renditions of " The Corps " and the " Alma Mater " both at West Point and during the two yearly participations in New York City churches make many friends for the Acad- emy. A small group of cadets have charge of the Sunday School held for the children and young people of the Post.

Roii( hing it up! After looking good in their pre-season games with semi -pro teams, the 1950 hockey team found much harder going against intercollegiate competition. Losses to Brown 3-12 and to Yale 0-8 were record before the sextet downed Harvard 7-6 in a thriller. Two losses, this time to Clarkson 0-5 and Princeton 2-7, preceded another victory, and again by one point, 6-5 over Middlebury. Boston University ran wild 3-13 followed by Dartmouth 3-9. Colgate found the range in the third period to win 3-6. Hamilton College provided Army with its last victory, this time 7-3. Williams won 1-3 in the next game. On the trip to Canada against the Royal Military College, the team played a terrific sixty minutes before losing 4-6 in the second game with our northern neighbors since the war.

BOXING Finishing the 1950 boxing season by Co- Captain Pete Monfore ' s winning of the 175-pound Eastern Intercollegiate cham- pionship, the team had won three, lost three, and tied one. Thrills were plentiful especially when big Bill Kelluni proceeded to knock his first two opponents out in the first round. However the team had to be content by beating Western Maryland, American University, and Penn State while losing to Syracuse, Maryland, and Michi- gan State. The one tie was with Virginia.

Pre- viously our team has lost only to the Coast Guard and Maryland. Victories had been achieved against Massachusetts, MIT.

CADETS, FORMER CADETS, AND FRIENDS OF WEST POINT: My desire at all rimes and by all available means is to keep you informed about the Association of Graduates, U.S.M.A., and to acquaint you with what the Association really is, what it stands for, and what its present plans, projects and operational functions are. The Association is incorporated under the laws of the State of New York and is composed of all graduates and former cadets of West Point who have assented to its Constitution and By-Laws. Approximately 90 per cent of our more than 11,500 living graduates, and many former cadets who are not graduates, are members of the Association. The objects of the Association, as stated in its Charter and Constitution, are: " To acquire and disseminate information on the history, activities, objectives and methods of the United States Military Academy; to acquire and preserve historical materials relating to that insti- tution; and to encourage and foster the study of military science there by worthy young men. " It is realized that only a small percentage of our people really know much about West Point. There- fore, the Association and the autonomous West Point Societies throughout the United States are and have been concentrating their efforts towards the objective of having West Point better known throughout the country. The principal means by which the Association strives to achieve this objective are the periodicals which are published by the West Point Alumni Foundation, Inc. The REGISTER OF GRADUATES AND FORMER CADETS, U.S.M.A., published annually, includes, in addition to very important statistics, a summary of the record of each graduate by classes, and in many cases tells where he is and what he is doing. ASSEMBLY, our quarterly alumni magazine, in- cludes valuable information about West Point, concise up-to-date articles regarding the curriculum and other important aspects of the Military Academy, and is the medium by which up-to-date news, concerning their members is disseminated by the various classes. In addition to the above publications, the Association is sponsoring the preparation and publication of a book, MEN OF WEST POINT, which will be ready for distribu- tion in 1952, during the Sesquicentennial Celebra- tion of the founding of the Military Academy. This book will delineate, against a background of American history, the notable achievements of our many outstanding graduates who have rendered great services to the nation in war and in peace, and the vital role that West Point has had in the education and training of these men. There are many other things — all of them in the best interests of West Point and in promoting a better understanding throughout the nation of the fundamental position which the Academy occupies in the destiny of our democracy — which should be done and which the Association of Graduates can do if the means are provided for the expansion of its facilities and operations. In recent years the Association of Graduates has greatly increased in size and consequently its oper- ational functions have increased, principally be- cause of the large classes graduating from the Military Academy in recent years. This increase, added to the increased cost of labor and materials, is a heavy burden for the Association to bear with its present small income derived mainly from the securities presently held in our Endowment Fund. The Association needs more funds and has insti- tuted the policy of seeking annual contributions from its members in order that sufficient income may be available to do the many things which the Association should do. The response in 1949 was very gratifying and a still greater response has already been received in 1950. What can our alumni, scattered throughout the world, do to help the Association accomplish its mission fully? My answer to this question is: Put yourselves in a position to know what ' s going on at West Point and be able to answer in- telligently questions raised by candidates, the parents of candidates, and others interested in West Point. Equip yourselves with accurate in- formation about the Academy and transmit this information to others of your community. Join the Association of Graduates, a West Point Society if practicable, and subscribe for our two publications— the REGISTER OF GRADUATES and ASSEMBLY. Visit West Point as often as you can and see for yourself what is going on at the Academy. Make cash contributions to the Association an- nually if you can (such contributions are deductible on your income tax returns) and include the Asso- ciation as a beneficiary in your will and in the final distribution of your estate (such bequests are also tax exempt). Your reward? An opportunity to serve one of the truly great institutions of the world and partially to repay the great debt we all will always owe our Alma Mater. C. L. FENTON, 04 Brigadier Generaf, U.S.A., Retired, President. 451 The Army Mutual Aid Association HISTORY The Army Mutual Aid Association was born of necessity. A group of American Army officers, seeing the need of immediate help for their families in emergency, with moderate cost to themselves, instituted this purely co- operative life insurance association in 1879- Among its charter members were Generals Philip H. Sheridan, Arthur MacArthur, R. C. Drum, G. W. Davis, W. R. Shafter, S. B. M. Young, and Emory Upton. For over seventy years, this strictly mutual enterprise, constituted and directed by its Army Officer membership, has provided Army Officers with life insurance at reasonable rates, has consistently made immediate payments of benefits and never defaulted upon a payment. It is the only fully cooperative life insurance association limiting eligibility for membership to Regular Army Officers. The institution ' s strongest advocates are its members and the dependents it has helped. It maintains no agents working on commission and no prohts or savings accrue to any one except those insured. It has survived the later Indian campaigns, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection, the Boxer Rebellion, World War I and World War II as well as panics and economic depressions and is a strong institution today. Those insured are carefully selected risks of varied age, rank and duty in the Army. The Experience Table shows the growth of membership to have been gradual, consistent and healthy, and that the increase in members has con- formed closely to the increases in the Army since the inception of the institu- tion. The mortality rate has averaged low. The age of its members has held comparatively young. The financial reserve is larger than ever before. Death benehts are paid instantly, $1,500 being transmitted by wire and the balance by mail. An unparalleled feature of the Association ' s work is its help in preparing and assisting in the collection of the pension and other claims for the be- reaved parents, widows and children of its deceased members. This service, by trained and experienced personnel, assures the dependents of members that they will be fully informed concerning rights to Government allowances. The importance of this service may be appreciated by the fact that families of officers who were not members of the Association are known to have lost thousands of dollars because of failure to file timely claims and proper sup- porting evidence for pensions and other Government allowances. Assistance is also given in the preparation of claims for the collection of other insurance. Every eligible Army Officer should become a member and support the work of this Association, both as a matter of good business and as a matter of esprit de corps. 152 Firestone LIFE PROTECTOR SAFETY TUBES Give Utmost Protection Against Blowouts Firestone Tires are built to resist most causes of blowouts, but no tire can with- stand running over a spike at high speed.

But you are also looking at something else — You are looking at a truly luxurious American product which is so low in price that its ownership may reason- ably be aspired to by the normal American family. Nowhere else in all the world could a car so fine be brought within such easy reach of so many people. It is a privilege enjoyed only in the U.S.A. Primarily, of course, this achievement must be scored as a tribute to America — to its resources, to its people. and to the system of enterprise under which we cooper- ate with one another. But we in the Pontiac organization — at the factory and in dealerships all over the country — feel that we have made special use of these priceless advantages. By deliberate design, and with continuous effort, we have striven to have Pontiac embody all that is good and desirable in an automobile — and yet, by ingenuity of manufacturing, keep the price within reasonable reach of a great percentage of American families. We recommend it to your attention as an outstanding example of the good things which we in America are privileged to enjoy.

In the first place, the airplane manufacturers know that Aerols take care of the job they are designed to perform. Then, too, the airplane makers know that Cleveland Pneumatic is outfitted to save them money in the design and fabrication of such an important item of equipment as the landing gear. Cleveland Pneumatic pioneered Aerols, then set up a competent engineering force, testing equipment and crews, as found nowhere else, and a 51 2 acre factory devoted solely to making Aerols. Cleveland Pneumatic ' s plant is here to save money for the airplane manufacmrer, while promoting safe and soft landings for the plane, its crew, cargo and passengers.

Y. 500 The story behind " ROGEH The noise in the cockpit of a jet fighter plane preparing to take off is deafening. It compares with a battery of air liamniers on a steel hull, or the roar of water at the base of Niagara Falls. Yet, through this tremendous noise, the pilot must hear and understand his take-off instructions before he can " roger. " To ac- complish this, new and better electronic equipment, both to transmit and to receive messages, was required. RCA research and engineering has pro- vided the solution. This is the story: Persons selected at random, with normal hearing and vocal characteristics, were seated in the soundproof room, illus- trated above, and fitted with experimental phones and microphones. Electronically generated noise, which synthesized a jet engine sound exactly , was amplified to a deafening roar — to the threshold of pain — and reproduced on the loudspeakers at the front of the room. Then over the ear- phones came words, words, words, and the test subjects wrote them down as they understood them. Patiently, over a period of months, by constantly analyzing and changing, by im- proving microphones and earphones, and by developing special amplifiers, and by fitting them all together in a complemen- tary manner, there finallv evolved a com- plete system — microphones, earphones, and special amplifiers— through which the pilot could understand and be understood— over the roar of his jet engine. These same metliods have deseloped acoustical systems for other high noise- level applications— the diesel-engine room of a submarine, the bridge of a battleship during main-battery firing, or AA gun posi- tions at the height of an anti-aircraft attack. Consideration of problems such as were presented in these high-articulation ear- phones and microphones is the daily concern of RCA engineers. To all such problems are brought the same experi- ence, persistence, and ingenuity which ha e made RCA the leader in the fields of radio and electronics.

On comfort that ' s born of stretch- out roominess all around, of soft coil springs on all wheels, of pillow- soft tires and really wide rims and a ride-steadying full torque-tube. On Dynaflow too — the near-magic drive that ' s winning thousands of new friends and influencing the in- dustry hke nothing else since the self-starter.

You use air mail as casually as your telephone. Even heavy cargo by air is now commonplace. Yet within the time of millions now living, the idea of flying was just a dream . . . until the genius of Wilbur and Orville Wright and Glenn H. Curtiss made it a reality. Carrying on their pioneering tradition, Curtiss-Wright has constantly expanded re- search, engineering, and production facilities. Today sky-giants equipped with Curtiss-Wright engines and propellers serve airlines and Air Forces the world over. Many record flights in recent news were made possible by Curtiss-Wright engineering developments. Many aviation achievements of the future will be made possible by Curtiss- Wright ' s research and development. Tomorrow ' s Air Strength is Growing Now Among the newest Curtiss-Wright advances in development or operation are ram jets and rocket engines, propulsion units to advance air speeds beyond 2,000 miles an hour, Turbo- Cyclone compound engines that recover wasted energy.

And to meet its needs the world has depended greatly upon the American oil industry . . . More and more, oil is being developed abroad by Americans for use abroad. It is a big job, requiring big enter- prise. Oil must be found in jungles and deserts, under seas and in rugged moun- tains. Years of work and millions of dollars must be spent before new oil supplies become available in useful quantities. And thecomingof American methods to these far places brings better living to the people there. It brings new enter- prise and new work, modern houses, schools, hospitals. Air-conditioning comes to people in the desert. Malaria control comes to fever-ridden jungles. Almost half the efforts of Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) and its affil- iates go into developing and supplying oil abroad. Meeting these needs calls for big plans, big investments. But it is a job we know how to do, and doing it helps human progress. The better you live, the more oil you use . . . STANDARD OIL COMPANY (NEW JERSEY 507 BIG GUN on the Highway!

How can we solve them? " Here, " said Henry George, " is the question of all questions for us. We must answer it or he destroyed, as preceding civilizations have heen destroyed . . . Political Economy alone can give the answer. And, if you trace out the laws of the production and exchange of wealth you will see the causes of social weakness and disease . . . And you will see the remedies. Not in wild dreams of red destruction nor weak projects for putting men in leading-strings to a brainless abstraction called ihe slate, but in simple measures sanctioned by justice. You will see in light the great remedy, in freedom the great solvent.
