Like the classes that have gone before, ours will seek, in military and civil life, to maintain the ideals of leadership upon which West Point is founded. One great bond unites the many phases of cadet life, and the many accomplishments and aspirations of every graduate. That bond is the Class Ring. Recorded in these pages are four years of preparation for our profession; symbolized by our class ring are all the accomplishments of our predecessors and a challenge to follow their lead while striving to surpass their service. iS -v t ' v :5- Th ■ ' Miiim- ' ij- K .

These are the three keys to character without which man is nothing. Duty before personal interest, honor above glory and above life itself, and country in peace and in war. A man without character is nothing, and so they have taught us this trinity of principle — Duty, Honor, Country, the traditional motto of West Point. It plays as great a part in our training as does our school work. School trains the mind — character is developed through the guidance derived from our well chosen motto. This is our heritage. This is our way of life. Major CIeneral Bryant E. Moore superintendent january i ' u ' -january 1951 Died in Korea February 1951 zvhile commanding the IX Corps Major General Frederick A.

MATHEMATICS Mathematics has been the loundation of the course at West Point since the Academy officially o])ened in 1M02. The formal course is fom])leted in the cadet ' s first two years and includes college algebra, com|)utation by logarithms and slide rule, solid mensiuation, trigo- nometry, analytic geometry, calculus, and brief courses in differential c(|uations and statistics.

MILITARY TOPOGRAPHY AND GRAPHICS The grapliical language of engineering which iiuhuies the symbolism of cartography saves thousands of words and countless misunder- standings. This mode of e.x[)ression is becoming internationally stand- ardized. Its fundamental character compels its inclusion in nearly every technical curriculum the world over. It is an indispensable tool for the precise communication of technical ideas and inlormation within the military and engineering [)rofessions alike. Col. Schick, Lt. Col.

First Class Year, economics gave us an orientation in the worldly subject of money values. Finally, our Foreign Relations course helped us to understand our neighbors in the present-day world.

MILITARY ART AND ENGINEERING The Department of Military Art and Engineering has a dual missi(Mi. The course in the history of military art teaches the evolution ot the art of war and the development and application of the principles of strategy as exemplified in the campaigns of great military leaders of the past and present. Military engineering teaches the analysis and design of structures, with particular emphasis on bridges, and the application of the principles of engineering analysis to the purely military field of engineering.

Starting with basic physical skills in plebe year, they taught us individual and team sports. After we acquired fundamental skills, we progressed to instructing and coach- ing others, and finally learned how to apply our knowledge in admin- istering physical training as officers in the service. With an cnit- standing Intramural Program superimposed on our other sports instruction, we have undergone the best physical education course in the country.

Many men of the Corps have paid that price, and have gone before youth ' s laughter had a chance to die. Others have become the leaders of our military might; a might dedicated to the preservation of freedom. But whatever his lot, each man relentlessly patterns his life according to the watchwords of the Corps — Duty, Honor, Country. 1st Ro ' x: Ryan. 2nd Row: HufF, Brantley, Leyshon.

Beadeye, longest, became fore- most, Bruce consorted with a diminutive blonde, Ernie rode herd on i8 holes. Ge orge never got to shifting gears and Ike could smell a rat at twenty paces. Bill became the ticket tycoon, Nortie set alarm clocks, Charlie became Poet Laureate, Oom turned Thespian, and Teddy enveloped our strategic flank with ease. Willie never could pry open Allen ' s vaults rumored to contain Barnet ' s hoard of Confederate banknotes. Howie grafted a bed to his back. Semi tooted a horn and the Red Hed the Mexican Militia. Stormy daily emerged from the cocoon and Jawn bagged clay- birds. Jack occasionally spoke, Lou disappeared into Long Island Sound weekends, Sam willed his footgear to the Afghan Navy, Dick commuted between the mound and Joisey.

Chris and his autumnal head bumping sessions. Norm and his undaunted backhand, and the intermurder champs. We possessed scholars in star-studded Andy and Lone Ranger loving Porky. Sparky, John, and Moff were omnipresent with their tales of Isaac Walton. Jim led his Glee Club while George plunked his uke to the despair of all. Barry and Woody weekended with their pro drags while Chet moaned about his blind beasts. No one will ever forget Sarge ' s love of trains, Brandt ' s schmoo, Larry ' s bus-side manner, and Ray ' s benos. Our Academy Award for acting goes to Pete and Jim for their twoman bike performance at Virginia Beach, and to Chief Rachek we give a fire-proof B-robe.

In ' 49 we suffered silently, and in ' 50 we made sure that the ])lebes will never for- get. We set no records but we did pretty well in all fields. Danny and Gil burned up the gridiron, Hank never dragged pro and Saint and Ken never dragged D; Zero and Cat just never dragged. With Jack on the hospital sun deck, Jerry, Bill, Harry, Pixie, and Bug in the sack, Bob and Chuck on the track, Joe in the pool, Hal and Freddie with a pigskin, Fritz on the courts, Larry overseeing all, and Pablo and Eddie ' s punning, a good time was had by all. The " Hub " was followed by the " Skipper " and the " Mighty Mouse " , who gave us our rings. We took Drill Streamers once, and were runners up for the Banker ' s Trophy. Looking back we realize that in addition to all the Academy has given us, we ' ve formed friendships that will ever be strong and true. ht Row: Denman, Knittlc. StciilK ' Hsnii, 1 lilt . CocpL-r.

Ably led by Seth, the master poopsheeter, and his body guard, the Angel, our D-i mob is as talented and versatile a group as any that has ever been sprung from the Rock. The gang owes much to its mouthpieces, Al, Rocky, and Ed. Bill and Eben helped many of us out of tight spots with the Academic Department. Strong arm men; Tony, Chauncey, and Hubie have been a force to reckon with, preferably at a sate distance. Gifted with incredible noses for deals were: Mooseny, Bruce, and Mongoose. On the policy level, C-bole, Paul, Tom, and Jim swung a lot of weight; about forty pounds each more than Willie, JC, or Walt. George and Andy handled the legitimate business, what little there was. It is with real regret that we leave our friends in Dog-One. Our individual abilities assure us that we will make good. Our firm friendships, born of mutual respect, nurtured by loyal cooperation, and ripened by shared ex- periences are bonds that will never be broken. Lt. Col.

Garrett, Cadet Martin The fifth letter of the phonetic ali)habet is " Easy " , which is very appropriate. The boys from E-i generally take the more galling aspects of cadet life quite easily. This is traditional in E-i. We have even learned to take the QM Laundry fairly well in stride. When it really counts though, you can change that " Easy " to " Eager " , because we can get as eager as anyone. No company in the Corps can boast a better " intra-murder " record and at the same time as outstanding a representation of Corps Squads. We have even improved our standing in drill competition, formerly a notorious " E " Company weakness. The easy relations existing among the upper classes in the company, and between Colonel Garrett and the company as a whole, have not caused a decline in military efficiency or discipline, but they have certainly made West Point less austere. And now, as we bid farewell to old E-i and its new Firsties, Cows and Yearlings, we say, " Take it easy, E Com- pany. " 52 I lit Rox: Paliih. Wallis, Jaggers. Reeder, Lynch.

' -::-= 54 sa " SF June 5, we ' ve all dreamed about that day for three years, and now that we find it just around the corner, there ' s a little sadness and regret mingled with our joy and elation. We begin to re- alize that perhaps never again will we experience the warm friendships and fraternity that we have cultivated during our stay at the Academy and in F-i, nor will they ever be forgotten. For those of us who are fortunate enough to have our roads crossed again, there will be many fond memories to relive. The storms and tragedies of plebe year, the innocent bliss of yearling year, the new powers and responsibilities of cow year and finally the many " good deals " and privileges of first class year. For those of us who never meet again, the memories of our experiences during the four short years we lived together will live with us forever. We ' ll say goodbye to F-i and all of our friends, but they will hold a spot in our hearts wherever we go or whatever we do. mm iU-, Lt. Cul.

Those of us remain- ing may not be a crack drill team or receive many awards at graduation, but there is one of our number in practically every Corps organiza- tion or team, and we can proudly point to a Brigade Adjutant, Battalion Commander and four star men. We ' ve never monopolized Flirta- tion Walk, but Al and Dick uphold our name. Hidden in company seclusion or exile are Doug and his angles, Ctiarlie and his uke, and Ralph and his sheets.

After tour years together, we find it time to part from old H-i. We contributed to the Army athletic picture with trackmen Ken and Lou John, boxing captain " the Muffer " , and Tony, " The Nose " , who later became lost behind the 1st Sergeant ' s massive desk. In Rich we had a real " wheel " , who led us all the way, and found time to captain the tennis team. We brightened the social picture with Jes ' s antics and his zany cheerleading. Our two gifts from the Class of 1950, Slug and Des, were men of great humor and much amusement. Only Slug would barri- cade his door against the Tac at AMI, and only Des ' s amours were known throughout the com- pany. June will find such of our clan as Pete, Hal, Jim, Rich, and, Al falling into the grasp of the " Fair Sex " , but the rest of us will con- tinue strong and free. While " Fat Boy " shined his shoes, the rest of us filled out the background of a great company with fine spirit. 1 Lt. Col.

It is the personalities of the men from every part of the country w ith widely varying back- grounds that breathe life into a company and make it different from other companies. In this respect K Company is most fortunate. Through- out its existence, from its conception five short years ago to the present, K Company has estab- hshed a tradition of comradeship unsurpassed throughout the Corps. WOrking together to win drill streamers, intramural championships, and commendations, has formed the many tight friendships that will be treasured equally as much as our diplomas and commissions through- out our careers. It is to the classes of ' 52, ' 53, ' 54, and their successors that we entrust the strength- ening of this bond between the men of K Co. For those of us who have served in K Company we shall always feel that it was and is our Company. Lt. Col.

Of course our four years had their lighter moments. We shall long hold memories of the 39th casino of Danny Purdy and Dumbo, the Dawson study hall, and Earl Red Michels ' Rabble. We of ' 51 worked hard but we played hard and usually we tried to combine the two. Our individual interests were wide in scope. Chapy ran the forum, Peifer was a hood. Smithy and Vince dreamed of Florida, Jiminez learned English, Clyde mothered the Rabble, Carlos shined his brass, Freddie worked crossword puzzles, John dreamed of Texas, T. J. handled company finances, Willie led cheers tor the Black Knights, Joe broadcasted sports. Moon ran the company.

" Company M, First Regiment, Sir! " We soon became used to shouting this as the more fami- Har battle cry of 8th Co. faded into our memo- ries. However we were somewhat slower be- coming accustomed to standing in ranks sur- rounded by upper classmen, but along with these new faces came those of our new class- mates, the turnbacks who were to play such a large part in the history of our class. These " gifts " from ' 50 were not long establishing themselves with the enduring friendships that have knitted us as class and company mates. True there were differences and some friction but despite this we came to think and act to- gether as few classes have done before us. Com- jKiiiv picnics and companv i)arties on the toot- ball trips were events which were expected as a matter of course. From our runts ' heaven over Grant Hall we shall carry the conviction that ours has been the privilege of serving in a great company. Lt. Cul.

After struggling for two years, A-2 finally was reassembled — little matter that we were in the wrong regiment. No distance could ever disrupt the friendly and cooperative spirit of these ambitious men. Widely distributed throughout Corps activities — from cheerleader to Sunday School Teacher, from star man to goat, from wheel to spoke, from gymnastics to lacrosse — we still found time for bull sessions, for Qui-Qui ' s tales of wild romance and even for singing to the accompaniment of Pete ' s plinking uke. ' Twas these little things that m ade our four years happy, aided, of course, by our few well-earned successes in intermurder and those meetings with the Tac, whom we could never quite understand. In the future, whenever we meet in some far-off spot, we ' ll have no difficulty in recognizing one another, for although Some faces always smiled, Others eternally frow ned. Still we ' re always standing Awful close to the ground. 70 It -■jaw-TrriT— «t » 1st Rozv: White.

We averaged a new Tac a year. We sadly said goodbye to some classmates and welcomed a couple of new ones. And now there are nineteen who have " stuck our four years through " . Just as the changes in Tacs and the shuffling around in Old North gave new interest to each year, our own diversity has kept life interesting. We boasted eleven Northerners and two Texans; seven of us were regular Corps Squad files, four could not make up their minds; we have our goats and a star man; we have our eager files and a few of us sacked for all four years. We were different. In everything it was these differences and these changes that made life interesting, whether as plebes whe n we laughed at ourselves or as firsties when we be- came most interested in cars, weekends, June, and the way old B Co. ticked. We have had four good years together. Capt. Gervais, Cadet Smith . : R " :r .i,„ll,, , McLean. Millimaii.

Big Herm kept us laughing with his humor, and the entire company seemed to excel under the supervision of our tac, Lt. Col. Watt. It ' s been a fine year.

Pour years is a long time to be confined to the same ivy covered walls, the same green cubicle, to be exposed to the malevolence and mental floggings of the TD and the Academic Depart- ment and simultaneously attempt to enjoy the " four best years " of our lives. However, in retro- spect, none of us, including our two wayward brothers in arms, can regret a moment spent here in D-2. In four years we struggled through two supes, and three diversified " tacs " , lost six classmates, became engaged and bartered " A " pins for violins, wore stripes and walked the area . . . some of us even took a weekend or two first class year. Intramural excellence was not one of our " fortes " , nor was dragging " pro " , but as long as there is a Rumford Medal or a spot vacant in the intramural cellar, there will be a place for " our company " . The disturbing influence of universal unrest and the knowledge (li future service serve as an indestructible bond linking us forever. Lt. Cul. i ' ucker, CaJet .Milani 77 Lt. Oil.

The clack of leather heels and books and chairs flying down stairs through madly scrambling " bedward-boLind " cadets will remain in our memories as characteristics of Easy-2 after taps. Escape from the O.C. was paramount, for aca- demics was not preceded by the adjective, easy, our company. However, ever aided by a prince among men, " The Crit " , surrounded and briefed by his elaborate coaching stafi of cadets, we managed to emerge with few losses and even l laced our share of representatives on the Dean ' s list. The only company spread out over five divisions, we lived hard and true to our standard of fortitude. We ranged from nth to ist in the Brigade in mortal intramural combat, but al- ways managed to find time for the pint ot " cream " from the " boodlers " . Oblivious to the outside world, we enjoyed Sigma Tau ' s frat parties as diversions on weekends while hurling aside the dreary weekly routine.

CHARACTER RUIIDING Few of us can ever forget the details of that July d ay in 1947 when a new chiss was born; for whether from civihan life or the Army, approximately 700 of us were introduced to a new life. Figures in grey and white descended from the stoops and Beast Barracks began. After a brief con- versation concerning posture and a few words with the first sergeant, we started our endless trips to the C-Store, got our first cadet haircut, and were welcomed to Washington Hall. We recall a short talk by General Taylor, the Oath, and then taps. We were a bewildered, disheartened, and a tired group of plebes. Reveille seemed to follow taps by minutes that night. From that time " Storm " became a way of life. Bells took a new meaning and usually rang early. The current best seller was Bugle Notes. The 4th arrived and also the classic statement " I knew this It uas spail " t ' 264 couldn ' t last. " Each day meant new in- struction: calisthenics, dismounted drill, lectures, one glass of iced tea and a salt tablet, afternoon constitutionals, grass drills, drill B, C, and D, twenty minutes worth of dress grey and Hrsties, three minute showers, and taps with shoe polish or with pen and paper. " Clothies, " equip- ment displays, bayonet drills, and Si ' s on the plain with music spotted the passing weeks. The privileges of shows and boodle fights came at last. Saturday found the unfortunate majority on the rock pile or shining shoes. The weekly rations of one pint of ice cream and three candy bars gave us the needed courage tt) face each new week. The details changed but the quill sheets didn ' t. New faces meant only more parades, TTIS, and longer hikes but plebe " fall out " was around the corner. 265 All tliis and chapel, too . tS S iiL Be it ever so hiimhle M list have been n u,,,,,] C.iimhcit barbers r 266 w.. .___v ■ ' •ii II hdisrd Crickets .In Ctiatin Portable Orderly Rooi We were more than glad to bid farewell to the rigors of Beast Barracks and let our chins out, hut the " hike " proved more than just a pleasure jaunt. It started with a morning march to the Hudson and a musical send-off in DUKWs. From then on it was all |)acks and blisters. High spots ot the days included the arrival at the latest resort, ice cream and " Cokes, " and an opportunitv to meet and establish friendships with classmates we had never seen before. Afternoons were usually marked by boodle and a short swim at the nearest mud puddle and perhaps a game of volleyball. We pulled the KP and Engineer details in addition to digging foxholes, eating K-rations, and standing outpost guard. A well discussed subject was " The Great Airport Mystery, " or " How Can Three Miles Be Ten.? " We learned that poison ivy was friend of neither " firstie " nor " doolie. " Evening shows jirovided us entertainment until we retired to the lu.xury of our shelters. We started on the road back via a forced night march and prepared to meet the Corps and academics. 10 ACADEMICS AND Strictly collegiate King Michael goes pro K TRIPS Presentation Parade marked the begin- ning of the rocky road to Christmas. We struggled gamely with slide rules and yel- low chalk.

The long awaited femmes ushered in our Christmas, and ice skating, shows, and nightly hops kept us busy enjoying our freedom. For many others this meant hours of delicious sack. Battalion inirties, hayrides, topped off with a fine ice show and the Southern Sweepstakes made Father Time move rapidly. We suddenly were aware that all good things must pass as a beautiful New Year ' s Eve Hop ended.

To iis fell the task of representing the Academy, as a class, at his funeral. The eleven mile route, the humidity, and the eventual rain took their toll of our whites and shoulders, but we had performed well. The fall term found us in a new roll of adjust- ment with respect to the Plebe System and academics.

But the grey walls were still standing when we returned and there were no alternatives but stereoscopes and bandbox reviews. Corps Squad or inter- murder occupied the afternoons and the weekends brought Sunday goodbyes. We counted demerits and struggled to stay pro for Spring Leave. Some were lucky; some weren ' t.

The whole Corps was moved by train, no day coach as rumored but overnight by Pulhnan. It was a bright, cold day and gloves were good only for so long. We saw our com- rades in arms from the Severn and Coast Guard Academy. It was the only cere- mony in which we got a running com- mentary of the jMoceedings as we marched. After a few blocks of double-timing, we s|ient a few brief hours of freedom and then it was back to West Point again. 284 Keeping our eye on Harry ?l Ah Sprino;! when a Yearhng ' s fancy turns to thoughts of the summer months. Three short relaxing days of Spring Leave ended before It started and we entered the sec- ond of four home stretches. The MT (i Department released us from the clutches of map making and sent us forth, stride scales in hand. We were introduced to the mysteries of calculating machines which those with any sense studiously avoided. The T. D. decided a psychological class needed a class in psychology in addition to Air Force instruction which prejiared us for the summer ahead. Once again we became involved in the struggle for intra- mural spoils and drill streamers. The Plain turned into a bright green welcome mat for May parades. Col.

Sir JUNE WEEK Before we knew it June had arrived; old dress coats, gold shields, and picnics, and another long, hard year was behind us. June Week this year was open season on pro drags. Tlie tew short days passed quickly as we spent our time at Delafield, on Flirty, or preparing for leave. Time seemed so short as we once again passed in rexiew to the Official West Point March. Recognition reminded us vividly of ourselves only a year ago. Graduation was more significant this time. We real- ized we were growing up in the Corps, and i we looked forward to increased resjionsi- bilitv and privileges. The sidezcalk Cafe k I 286 Ifcddiuj! Hells every fifteen minutes Whether after graduation or furlough, we began our Second Class Summer with a flying start, leaving Stewart in fifteen plush C-47S. First stop was the " Cradle of Military Aviation " at Mitchel Field on Long Island. Here with the Air Defense Command we gained some appreciation of the complexities of finding and inter- cepting hostile aircraft. Hempstead, Jones Beach, and even (lotham itself, were targets for those of us who wasted no time on the trip ' s privileges. Langley Field provided a paradise for those who were smart enough to look ahead to drag- ging on Camid and a " Waterloo " for those who made friends with the one armed bandits.

For more practical work and a look in on the Airborne Infantry, we stopped at Ft. Bragg, where members of the 504th made us feel at home with " mister, " the DT, and calisthenics. This marked our first meeting with the 75mm pack howitzer. " 1000, 2000, 30 — ugh! " and the i)ara- troops either gained or lost files. The grand finale was operation " DZ Nor- mandy. " The baseball teams left unde- feated, a mark for future classes. The Air Proving Ground at Eglin Field presented us with an impressive exhibition ot air Stand up! Sit down! MACDIll Daily P-rade Strength, e.g., the bomb run ot the B-36. Here also was aviation ' s test tube, the Climatic Hangar. The Santa Rosa Beach Club, Pensacola, or Panama City had the priority on off duty time. Our stay at MacDill Field, near the hospitable and entertaining cities, Tampa and St. Peters- burg, was perhaps the most pleasant of the summer. MATS Air Rescue Service left us with memories of snakes and jumps over the water, while the Strategic Air Command familiarized us with its equip- ment bv flights in B-29S and an inspection of bomber-navigator training.

There were the lighter moments, the Camid Hall, and weekends at Virginia Beach, but no one objected when the TC busses arrived. Ah, those Army beds and food! At Ft. Story and Ft.

The PE Department beat the Academic Depart- ment in their desire to see us better edu- cated but manuals, supplements, and in- terpolations followed rapidly, ;ind our accounts proved it. By im|)roper manipu- lation of wires in " Juice " Lab, we knew we could end our worries of steam charts and humid sub-sub tropical areas. They said this was the year that we had only three subjects. Philadelphia got priority this year tor two football trips and prob- ably was the destination of our one pre- cious weekend. It was great to be able to break up the grind for a few extra hours with the joys of the outer world. Our morale soared high as " Rabble " made it 20 in a row. The Middies told us how it was in the " Big League " but forgot that low score doesn ' t win. Drill season, Thanksgiving, and 200th Night passed, each marking that much less time till that wonderful 10 days, Christmas. WEEKENDS Dot ' s It look like a civilian?

After several weeks of top-secret practice sessions, ex- tensive propaganda, and cold weather, the day arrived when these two jugger- nauts were to meet. Navy fans gained only hope from the outcome.

The first of the new class arrived; our second tour of Beast Bar- racks had begun at last. The first week was as tough on us as it was on the plebes. We were often discouraged as we watched the same mistakes repeated, but time brought improvement, and we began to take pride in our squads, platoons, and companies. The addition of cows on the Detail was welcomed by all. We were continually impressed by the spirit of co- operation throughout our class.

Dragging, Buckner hops, and Delaheld offered an occasional bit of rela.xation, and after Taps stories helped maintain our sense of humor. Our big task was the " hike " and the success of its mission.

Ring Weekend. Since the " day when first our grey was new " , we had waited eagerly the time when we might join the ranks of those who already wore the ring of our large fraternity. A short speech by Colonel Card, the pres- entation of the rings, a few words of congratulations by our " Tacs " , and the rings were ours. The crass masses of brass and glass were compared by first class, envied by the lower classes, and described profusely by the plebes. It took a while to realize our center of gravity had moved to the left, but some ot us had drags to hold us up. A rare (340 lights were not burning) but beautiful Ring Hop, includ- ing the traditional ring, 25 seconds per couple, and a balmy fall evening ended this memorable day. OAO ' s flashed newly acc}uired miniatures, but " B Squads " were wondering whether they had taken a back seat to a ring. Some topped the weekend with a brief escape to the out- side world, others by an excursion on Flirty. ., ..v h lu lir II ncfdsnii The Erst (lass lists to port jeorge joins the jratrrnity The best of the best Itk % Si .H.

Nothing felt better than to toss the books aside and take off on a weekend, knowing there would be manv more. It the long arm ot the TD and AD had us in its clutches, we could hnd solace in weekends at the new Weap- ons Room Boodlers. We personally es- corted and cheered the Rabble at Penn.

Friends, relatives, and future wives came to visit us in this our moment supreme as cadets. There were so many things to do and so many plans to make. Wedding plans took much ot our time. Each of these final days, filled with jxirades, honors, dragging, and packing, slipped hy quickly. Our cars in the Area looked like i)arking at Municipal Stadium. This time we ' re marching tront and center and taking the review, for this was our last Ciraduation Parade. Recognition was the finale of our days with the Corps.

" I ; ill 1 ITthxbtics " From the Far East I send you one single thought, one sole idea — written in red on every beachhead from Australia to Tokyo — there is no substitute for victory! " These words of General MacArthur typify the fighting spirit that Army Athletics have instilled in the Corps and in the graduates of the Academy. On foreign fields, the trophy is only a piece of barren land, fought for with blood, sweat, and human lives so that in future years young men will continue to battle on the fields of friendly strife, and the American people will continue to enjoy the freedom that is their heritage.

Martin then snared a Blaik pass for a tally and Pollock bucked across for his second TD of the game early in the last stanza. Weaver and P ' oldberg played brilliantly at the ends and fine defensive work by Reich, Stout, Johnson, and Schultz kept the Big Ten Champs from scoring more often in this battle at Yankee Stadium.

Then on Fridays they faced the JV ' s of Harvard, Pittsburgh, Princeton, Rutgers, and Dartmouth and each went down to defeat before the men who lacked the weight, or speed, or agility necessary to make the Big Team, but who had more fight and guts than any team in the country. We salute Major Stephens and his courageous B-Squad! OIER THE LINE! r.UIING THE J J- TIGER :ki . 67 C.aptaui Ed Tixier BASKETBALL The 1950-51 basketball squad was a vastly im- proved team over that of a year ago. Ed Tixier and Vince Bailey were the only regulars to return to the courts at the beginning of the season. However, yearlings Chuck Aakhus, Ed Weaver, Larry Eoss, and Gil Reich (juickly filled the shoes left vacant by last year ' s graduation and spurred the team on to five straight victories early in the campaign. St. Lawrence was the first victim of the Kaydets, losing by a 68 to 55 score. Weaver scored 13 points, Reich and Tixier were close behind with 12, and Eischl racked up 11. Against Ithaca, Eoss broke into the limelight setting the pace with scoring and floor- work.

The squad traveled to Boston and defeated Harvard 62-55 with Weaver again the standout. Returning to the home court, Army barely eked out a 59-58 win over Rutgers in the most exciting game of the year, Tixier scoring the winning bucket with less than 8 seconds to play. The Philadelphia story was a different matter, however. Temple, fielding one of the strongest teams in the East and boasting of the nation ' s leading scorer, Mlkvy, proved to be too strong for the Kaydet quintet. Reich held Mlkvy to 8 points during the first half, and. although Army held a faint 43-40 halftime lead, the Owls struck in the final chapter to win. Weaver tallied 24 i)oints during the affair, one less than the Temple sharpshooter. Fordham had too much height in winning 57-45. However, Army re- turned to winning form by dumping Amherst 70-49 with Weaver pouring in 31 points, just 4 short of the Academy record. Under Coach John Mauer ' s tutelage, the team showed constant improvement and was a source ot satisfaction to tlie whole Corps. rn t t HOCKEY Pie-season u;aines with se cral semi-pro teams hroujfht out a noticeable weakness in offensive dei h which was to phigiie the Army team through- out the season.

Led by Ail-American Dan Wardrop, it completed its first undefeated season since 1937, the record marred only by a tie with Cornell. Although behind in several crucial games, these champions did not admit defeat.

Captain Wardrop, left halfback, not only broke up the enemy attack on his side of the field, but also set up numerous scoring plays which decided the outcome of several vital games. He was more than ably assisted on de- fense by the big fullback, John Strealdorf, whose talented feet made short work of penalty kicks and invariably kept the ball in the opponent ' s half of the field. Ted Post, Ken (lood, and lOny Maynard repul sed the attack on the other side of the field. Putting Maynard, a defensive demon, on the opposing center forward con- siderably reduced the enemy scoring potential. Bill Quinn and Wayne Miller are the only two to depart from this year ' s aggressive forward line. A strong bench of underclassmen will form the nucleus of next year ' s club which will attempt to dujilicate the feat of this year ' s great team.

Under the third year of Herb Kroeten ' s very able coaching, the team can point with pride to a record that speaks for itself. In spite of obstacles such as the team ' s loss of Captain Stan Scott and John Cunningham due to pre-season injuries and a schedule that included the toughest teams in the East, the team fought with sjiirit and enthusiasm until the hnal minute of every match. The team opened the season by defeating Western Marvland 7 2 to ' o. Don Speirs, Ciar Weed, Bill Sharp, Ken Herring, and Lou Morin contributed to the victory getting TKO ' s over their Western Maryland ojiponents. The next match was a typically bruising, hr.rd- fought battle with a strong Michigan State team. Michigan ' s Amos won the first bout from a hard fighting Bill Shine of Army. Bill Speirs won a bout for Army by defeating Flynn. Then, after a draw between Gar Weed and Lutz of Michigan State, a TKO by Black of Michigan and Ken Herring ' s victory over Hamilton of Michigan, Lou Morin combined speed and power Stepping into it .395 Battle fatigut . . .

National champion Speiser beat determined Jim Mclnerney of Army and the matcli was tlien tied, S shz- ' ' ' ' t- final bout fast, hard-punching Jerry Hart won his bout for Army by KOing Follis of Micliigan State. Using the same combination of skill, de- termination, and will to win that they displayed in their victory over Michigan State, Army ' s boxers finished their tough schedule with an admirable record. Hill Shine in the 125 lb. class, Don Speirs in the 130 lb. class, and Gar Weed of the 135 lb. class performed ably and were of great help to the team. Bill Sharp, Ken Herring, and Lou Morin boxed for the 145, 155, and 165 lb. classes with Jim Mclnerney fighting many successful campaigns in the 175 pound class. Jerry Hart, the team ' s heavyweight, was the one who was always the last one to leave the table at meals. It was a great season and every- one who was connected with the boxing team may well be ])roud of a team that overcame in- juries of two key players to make such a good showing against strong teams all over the E ast and Middle West. ll ' tiitiut:, thrir turn i?! e ' i vr a ft K.r 396 SCHEDULE .-J riiiY Oppon ■lit ,■ ■ ;; V ppoucnt 7 Weslevan 2 Yale 9 MIT Williams 1 Harvard 8 irinitv 5 DartmoLith 4 Navv 8 Amherst 1 Eastern Princeton Intercollegiates SQUASH Under the able direction of Coach Leif Nordlie, the squash team completed in 195 1 another successful season.

Hard work during the week by the grapplers paid off with a lop-sided 26 to 6 victory over the Crimson of Harvard after a narrow two point k)ss to the powerful Cornell squad. The Columbia Lions fell to the visiting Army team in New York City by the close score of 18 to 14. The cadets continued their winning holds with a 29 to 6 victory over Pittsburgh, while a strong Syracuse team fell by a close score of 16 to 13. Captain Dean Mulder was the most brilliant of Army ' s mat- men this season. In his third season of " A " Squad competition, he rarely encountered trouble against his opponents in 167 pound matches. Little Bobby Karns, Don Swygert, Lou Scalzo, and Al Paulekas were others of the grapplers who consistently handled their mat chores ably. Faced with one of the toughest schedules in the nation, against such mat powers as Syracuse, Lehigh, and Penn State, Coach Appleton ' s men did superb work. It was a pleasure to see the cadets with the large collar sizes perform on the mat.

Coach Gordon Chalmers faced a rebuilding job with this year ' s swimming team. Captain Jack Craigie and veteran Joe Knittle, in the free style distances, and John Hutson and Jack Martin, in the diving, garnered the majority of the mermen ' s points. Craigie was particularly outstanding as he broke several Academy records during the season to highlight his third victory-studded year on the Varsity aquatic squad. A slow start produced consecutive defeats at the hands of Brown, (40-35); Harvard, (55-20); and Dartmouth, (39-36). Responding to Coach Chalmers guidance, the team provided Ohio State with stiff competition before bowing out, (45-30). The next week brought the first victory of the season at the expense of a strong Colgate squad, (42.5-32.5). Yale ' s national cham- pions gave Army a sound trouncing, but the cadets bounced back to out-splash a good Frank- lin and Marshall squad by a 48 to 27 score.

CADETS. FORMER CADETS. AND FRIENDS OF WEST POINT: My desire at all times and by all avadable means is to keep you intornied about the Association of C iraduates, 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 opera- tional functions are. The Association is incorporated under the laws of the State of New ' ork and is composed ot all graduates and former cadets ot West Pt)int who have assented to its ConstitLition and By-Laws. All but approximately 1,00U of our more than 12,000 living graduates, and many former cadets who are non-graduates, are members of our Association. The objects of the Association, as stated in its Charter and Constitution, are: " To acquire and disseminate intormation on the history, activities, objectives and methods of the United States Military Academy; to acquire and preserve historical materials relating to that institution; and to encourage and foster the study of military science there by worthy young men. " It is realized that only a small percentage ot 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 ob- jective are the periodicals which are published by the West Point Alumni Poundation Inc. 1 he REG- ISTER OF GRADUATES AND FORMER CADETS. U.S.M.A., published annually, in- cludes, 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. ASSEMBLE ' , our quarterly alumni magazine, includes valuable mtormation about West Point, concise up-to-date articles re- garding the curriculum and other important as- pects of the Military Academy, and is the medium by which up-to-date news, concerning their mem- bers is disseminated by the various classes. In addition to the above publications, the Associa- tion is sponsoring the preparation and publication of a book, MEN OF WEST POIN T, which will be ready for distribution in 1952, during the Sesquicentennial Celebration 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. Another means of disseminating information is through the National Public Relations Committee ot the West Point Societies, which was organized here at West Point m June, 1950. Our Association furnishes the Secretariat and filing facilities for this Committee. In recent years the Association of Graduates has greatly increased in size and consequently its operational functions have increased, principally because of the large classes graduating from the Military Academy in recent years. 1 his 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 in- stituted 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. 1 he response in 1949 and 1950 was very gratifying and a still greater response is expected in 1951. 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 intelligently 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 GRADU- ATES 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 annually if you can (such contributions are de- ductible on your income tax returns) and incUide the Association 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. (.-, I,. FHNiON.

Allison Powers FIRST FLIGHT of First Turbo-Prop Transport THE first U.S. turbine transport is now a reality and is under test. It was made possible through the private enterprise and initiative of the Allison Division of General Motors. First flight was com- pleted December 29, 1950 with an Allison-owned Convair Turbo-Liner equipped with two Allison " 501 " Turbo-Prop engines. This investment in the future of Turbo-Prop power is the result of Allison determination to speed the development of turbine transports in this country. The Allison " 501 " Turbo-Prop engines, developed under sponsorship of the U.S. Navy, are the most advanced Turbo-Prop engines in the U.S. today. They lead the world in high power for their low weight. They will make possible smoother, more economical transports to carry increased loads of passengers and freight. Allison will prove these advantages in an extended flight test program on the Turbo-Liner. The results —to be made available to the military services, air- craft manufacturers and commercial air lines— will prove the safe and dependable operation of Turbo-Prop power. Thus the United States will continue its world leader- ship in transport aircraft.

Enrup offers entirely new possibilities to design engineers. The wash- ing machine parts, shown above, are made of Enrup because its abrasion resistance and structural strength are greater than the com- bination of metal and plastic formerly used. Enrup can be made into almost any shape or form, simple or complex. It can be punched, sanded, sawed, nailed, bolted, molded and machined. Perhaps Enrup is just what you ' ve been looking for to improve your product or your manufacturing operation. For more details, write to address below. PRODUCT OP .Some of the products made of Enrup for leading manufactur- ers. The smallest items weigh as little as one-third of an ounce. Engineers often find Enrup cuts molding costs, per- mits operating economies hith- erto impossible. Note how a bath of 20 percent solution of sulphuric acid eats away the steel gear at left, while the Enrup gear is un- harmed. Enrup is non-conduc- tive, non-absorbent, easy to clean, is noiseless.
