At first the trickle of gradu- ates was small, and only a shadow of the mark West Point would someday make in the great story of history could be seen. West Point ' s future looked bleak in 1812 when Sylvanus Thayer became Su- perintendent, but he laid the founda- tion for the West Point of today, a foun- dation as sound as the bedrock of the Hudson Highlands.

Although he died in 1877, Benny Havens lives on to- day in West Point History. During the early nine- teenth century, the tavern run by Benny on the post was a favorite meeting place for cadets. They so enjoyed themselves that their cadet life suffered and Benny was barred from the grounds. He moved to Highland Falls and opened another tavern which became the Benny Havens of history and legend. This legend of Benny Havens bridges the gap be- tween today and yesterday. It spans the years, knit- ting West Point past with present in one gleeful whole. ' . S His bouse, " a public place where liquors are sold. " The Plain in 1828 b George C.atlin.

GRAY WALLS Rising abruptly from the Hudson River, the Gothic structures that typify West Point form a startling contrast to the bright green of the surrounding highlands. Although the Acad- emy itself covers many acres, the main build- ings are grouped together, surrounding the Plain to boom back musical echoes as the band sends the cool notes of ' ' Retreat " into the stillness of an afternoon.

Farley of South Carolina, class of 1862, resigned from the Academy in November 1860. At the end of the War, graduates of the Academy stood at the head of all armies in the field. They had served their respective causes with gallantry and skill. General Robert E. Lee. 1869, Field Training. 1885, Full Dress lnspecti THE MIDDLE YEARS The Civil War over, the Academy resumed its national character with the return of southern cadets in 1868. The curriculum broadened in scope and the number of cadets continued to grow. It was during this period that West Point ' s famed Honor System was born. As the nation grew and prospered, so too did West Point, and it began to take on the characteristics that have marked each graduate as a man of attention to duty, to honor, and to regard for his country. Times were not peaceful however, for the Academy or its graduates. These were the times of the Indian Wars and many battles were fought by the Army before final peace settled over the West.

WORLD WAR I The Academy had grown up by 1902. Since its humble beginning a century earlier, men of great stature, had been graduated. The great American plains were spanned by steel, and the hemispheres were ripped apart by the Panama Canal; both operations mainly engi- neered by West Pointers. 1917 saw us enter World War I. Unprepared for war as we were, our troops fought brilliantly under the leadership of Per- shing, Leggett, Rullurd. and many others. By 1919, the long grey line, which now stretched back 117 years had given the country reason to be proud of the men of West Point. General John J.

Let DUTY be well performed, HONOR be e ' er untamed, COUNTRY be ever armed, West Point, by thee. Guide us, thy sons, aright, Teach us by day, by night, To keep thine honor bright, For thee to fight. When we depart from thee, Serving on land or sea, May we still loyal be, West Point, to thee. And when our work is done, Our course on earth is run, May it be said, " Well done; Be thou at peace. " E ' er may that line of grey Increase from day to day, Live, serve, and die, we pray, West Point, for thee. 1 .|()|{ GKNKRAI, FKKPKRICK A.

THE ACADEMIC BOARD The academic bo Mil), made ii| of the Superintendent ;ui l the heads of the various departments, exercises a powerful influence over the lives of all cadets. Uthough personal contact between it- members and cadets is limited in mosl cases to a few lectures, the Board i- the guiding hand thai leads us direct!) down the long road to graduation. It estab- lishes the Mill entrance requirements and -it- the academic standard to lie maintained throughout the lour years. It prescribes the courses of stud) and establishes a minimum level of proficiency. It dismisses all cadet- who fail to live up to these standards, and finally, it confers diplomas and awards commissions to those who successfull) complete the four-year course. Front Row: Col.

CL» Offi icerd J HERE IS one group of cadets whose pur- M pose as such is not fulfilled until after S graduation. These are the Class Officers, representatives of the elass of ' 52 from their elec- tion until the last " r 2 General has " faded away. " Elected during " cow " year, they have since ac- complished much for the class, enough to assure us of capable representation in the years to come. The honor of being chosen to lead the Class of ' 52 is sufficient indication thai these men possess the capabilities necessary to insure their own future success and consequently that of the class. These men were chosen with confidence by and for the Class of ' 52, and we therefore feel secure in the fact that these are the men to serve as our class officers: from happy congratulations to the win- iicr of the cup until the last sad farewell to a fallen friend, thej will Berve to bind us together with the spirit of our class and with the West Point Spirit. f- ollcu ( ommith The System i Wk m Jk UK I ' OIICI Commil of the .il.ililN lor making life of the fourth ■ class cadets a continuous process of (?) learning.

The Howitzer was then part of the Dialectic Society. The Class of 1896 rebelled against this dramatic sponsorship and published their Howitzer as a Corps yearbook and class his- tory. Naturally, the 1896 Howitzer is considered In be volume I, the present book being number l. I. That ' s nol quite true, though, for in 189M the Spanish American ar pr - ented publication, and in 1901 the breakdown of the class organizations because of the " hazing " investigation also pre- vented publication. Since that v ear, in spite of wars, depressions, and other miscellany, the How- itzer has conic through. Indeed, during World War II, the staff outdid itself and produced a book for each graduating class, both January and June. The Howitzer of the Sesquicentennial Year is the recorded history of the Class of 1952, and a pictorial history of the Military Academy. An awful lot of people worked on our ' 52 Howitzer; the staff numbered one hundred and eight) cadets of all classes. The policy and plan- ning for the book ' s publication came from the Howitzer Hoard. Hack in December of 1950, the HOWITZER BOARD H. (RIAL STAFF Front linn: Hoi loins.

All has not been work though, ami man) good times have been made possible because of the bond of comradeship between the men of K-Co. We are composed of all types of hives, goats, athletes, and sackoids. and this variet) of men has been the secret of our success. The hives pull the goats along in academics, and the goats teach the hives to enjo) life-.

Now. we still aren ' t am bigger, but we ' ve built a spirit of friendship and loyalt) thai will last all our lives. Now we know what ii is to work together. There were always dailj problems, the biggest probablj being to keep one jump ahead of the lac. In academies, some sought tenths lor tenths ' sake; others, lor weekend leaves. Uthough we stayed pretty busy over in our corner of South Area, it wasn ' t always work. Someone always had a " deal " in the making, ami good times were more the rule than the excep- lioTi. c watched June approach with unfettered joy. When it arrived, we felt that gladness tempered with a new realization that " 52 of L-l would soon be separated.

So solid was our organization, it became difficult to dis- tinguish one class from the other, except for our gnome plehes who worked diligently to dispel the belief that plebe year " had.

No more will the halls of the old company resound to the voices that, long ago, followed their awed masters into lorn years of eternity. But, suddenly, eternitj was numbered, more voices were crowding up from the reserve to take our empty spaces in the front line, and it was then that we felt deep regret as the realization came that something was slipping away. That something was the pride of surviving tin- hard years that brought the subtle change of child into man. that something was the glorj of our unconditional acceptance of a code which once seemed unattainable, and that something was the warmth of the friendships formed under the hot fires for the temperance of our souls. We know that that something will not slip away from us. For as long as we can remember, it will mold our futures ami our on " futures to fulfill our place in life Capt. I. II. Kincaid, K. F.

Our gang came the closest of an company to bringing fraternitj life to West Point. We tempered our social inclinations with plentj of smoke oti the [ntermurder fields, however, and the bronze on our Orderly Room mantel will show that there was fire under that smoke. o single E-2 team ever stood far above the rest, we were just one big 100 man team. The spirit in E-Co was more than " rah. rah " : companionship like ours was more akin to the true meaning of spirit. ith this, we shall always remember the close ones, the ones that were hard to lose, and I he big ones. Ma E-2 remain the besl in the Corps in coming years, for we graduates will carry awa with us not onl) the spirit of West Point, but the spirit of E-2 as well. Front Row: lulu. Uter, Richar.l iiimaii.

To be accurate, it all began for us in L-2 on graduation day minus three years, nine months. Since, our situation has improved somewhat. After being dominated plebes, we became dis- illusioned callings, then sleepless cows, and at last, bankrupt lirsties. If our L-2 careers followed a rags-to-riches pattern, our experience with Tactical Officers was just as aried. The first two ears were quiet ones. Clow year brought the Navy, anil " adrift " was substituted for " misplaced. " First class year, the long-awaited ax fell, so we began memorizing I ' M 22-5 and washing our lights on Friday night. But not one of those four years was a bad one. In our company, there were some of each kind that makes a cadet world. We had goats and hives, muscle men and, well — the rest of us. There is one thing we all had in common which we will keep until our dying day, and that is L-2. I.i. Col. E. T. I unit Km,: kermil S»anson. Ilarrv Roberts, Glenn Palmer. William McClelluiiil.

These engineers work with such special equipment as the drop- test machines illustrated, which closely simulate an actual landing. Chart records like the one shown indicate the reactions which occur in a fraction of a second when the struts " land " . Thus Cleveland Pneumatic engineers check the " behavior " of new Aerol designs to verify their calculations. Information ob- tained permits further refinement of the hydraulic character of the strut— enabling Cleveland Pneumatic to get the last drop of efficiency out of Aerols. This all-out testing for all-out efficiency is one of the reasons why Aerols are world- famed as the finest in landing gear. ventional Aerols, we also manufacture the new Liquid Springs for aircraft.

It ' s only half the size and weight of its predecessor, yet has much greater power and twice the range... an outstanding contribution to the vital radio communications gear used by our armed forces. In developing this new instrument for radiotelephone communication, Sig- nal Corps engineers, RCA engineers, and our components ' suppliers, working together, utilized every known tech- nique to drasticall) reduce the size of parts. Condensers, tubes, resistors, hard- ware and even wires were redesigned. The new and old Walkie-Talkies, pic- tured side by side (above, right), show the magnitude of size reduction. Production of the AN PRC-10 in quantity at the RCA Camden Plant marks a milestone in the miniaturiza- tion of electronic equipment. Moreover, this engineering achievement certainly will find application in other types of electronic equipment where size and weight are important factors. It ' s an example of how RCA, through its extensive engineering and researchfa- eilities, is constant!) striving to produce better equipment lor the armed forces. ppj W ' ' ' ' Di NEW OLD utsu New plug- n discriminator assembly ake as little space as a sin- the older unit it replaces.

The K- 1 dis- places 750 tons, is only half as big as a fleet-type sub, and carries a crew of 40 men. The streamlined tank-like structure on her bow contains top secret sound detection equipment. For knocking out the enemy subs she tracks down, the K-l is armed with electronic homing tor- pedoes. This deadly new submersible was designed and built at the Groton, Conn., yards of Electric Boat Company, in close collaboration with Navy experts.
