Photographic Editor f One hundred years ago the men of 1853 graduated into a time of national crisis. WsJ We know only too well the service they rendered as written in the history of our country. Now we of 1953 again find our nation in need. Ours is to serve, unselfishly, as those before us. Here is our story — it is only the beginning. i . A rk K.

General Eisenhower graduated from West Point in 1915 and went on to command the Allied armies in Europe, organize the defense of the West for NATO, and become President of the United States. Through his loyalty to Duty, Honors and Country, he has always fulfilled the trust our nation has placed in him. DDE 7Z T tt y ? J. ' «£ — V. iZ.

These battlements that frown upon the Plain, to ancient wars have sacrificed the bravest of their sons. Their spirits moved to the harmonies that stir our souls today. ' They loved the shining waters, and the stars, the plains and rugged hills that were their home. Now they have drunk the icy wine of death, j Their shades, on twilight pinions hung, ' speed through the silent void of space, Their flight wrapped in the sable shroud of endless night. O Thou, whose outstretched arm gives us our life, to Thee we make a prayer: When our time conies, when ringing call tp arms sends us to that vague frontier. Give us strength to pay the debt we owe, " To bear the battle like the men that were. Give us nerve to face the blazing steel. To rise triumphant oVr the tide of fear. May we fall like them, knowing we have, done our duty to our country and our home. ivuniuMmaM w9m9mpmi ' mmfV9mfi¥mnmm 99vmimr9mmmm 9idminJstmtion Editor Robert E.

PLKBK YKAR FIRST IMPKKSSIONS ARE LASTING OM S Tires hummed on the roads, and the trains clacked along the rails on that bright, sunny July 1st, as all the roads across the nation seemed to lead to West Point. For some of us, the journey seemed too short, for already there was appre- hension growing in our minds, while for others the journey seemed too long, for they were anxious to begin; but for all of us, this was the big day, the day we had been looking forward to for so long, the day we were at last to become Kay-dets. On orriving, most of us took the long walk up from the train station, and as we looked around in our last few minutes of freedom, the Point seemed like a beautiful place to be. However, as soon as we hit Central Area, and were greeted with " Drop that bag, Mister! I said, DROP IT! " , our impressions changed, as least temporarily, and we began to wonder whether or not we really were going to like this place called the Point. We shall never forget 1 July ' 49. WHILE WE SWEAR AS YOU 1)11) OF YOKE After the storm of the first day had subsided, we settled down to the job of becoming New Cadets. We were sworn in at Trophy Point, and had a welcome by the Supe. The first few days were packed with more than it seemed possible for a day to hold, but then the Fourth rolled around, and we had a day of respite, with Cook ' s Tours by the Firsties to show us around our new home. Sunday came and we went out to Trophy Point again, this time for the first of our many chapel services, and as we gathered by the quiet river to worship, each man truly felt that he was a part of West Point. As the days passed, we found ourselves function- ing as though we had been Plebes forever, as indeed, it seemed we had been. V After the first week, everyone started looking forward to Plebe Hike, and the " big fall-out. " The days seemed to drag, even though the Firsties kept us hopping, and at the end of each day, we,. too, were dragging, but as yet there was no question of " pro " or " de, " we were all beat and all " D " (for Dumbjohn, that is). We learned how to roll our packs, and how to live in the field. For practice, we took c couple of short strolls in the woods up behind Michie Stadium, and found out to our surprise that the Firsties could get tired, too. After all the preparation, we finally moved out, a step at a time, with our precious $2.50 boodle money clutched in our hot little hands. The big adventure was starting. For the next week we grew fat and sassy on boodle, and relaxed by swimming and generally letting our necks out. It seemed great, but everyone warned us to take advantage of it while we could, for soon we would be moving to our permanent companies where we would meet the ogres — the Yearlings and the Cows. I ; After the initial jolt of being in our companies had worn off a bit, we found we still had some- thing to live for after all, for not only was there far-off Recognition, but the more immediate pros- pect of football trips and Plebe Christmas. Our first bit of freedom came with the Penn Trip. We got initiated to the never-to-be-forgotten horror called a box lunch, and threw back our capes in grand style. We eased out a 14-13 victory and everyone celebrated. The one somber note was the march up The Hill at 0530, sir. The Novy game quickly followed, and then Plebe Christmas was here. For ten glorious days, we had nothing to do but worry about what to do while dragging, or whether we should sack in or go skating. Lots of us got to see the OAO for the first time since arriving, and everyone was convinced that this life was the greatest. But it was all too short, and soon we said goodbye to the drags, and it was " Chins in! " once more. »ILl! l ' ]jp « i ' ' WiPIBWpWil||IWpWWgi| Plebe Christinas memories soon passed, and we were introduced to a horrifying phenomenon, an upperclassman during Gloom Period. Life settled down to a slow, steady grind, and it seemed as if June would never come. The Gloom Period was relieved by the Cadet Dance Orchestra playing in the Dining Hall every Friday night, but we found our fall-outs few and far between, and the Yearlings snapped at us whenever we passed them in the hall. Shining equipment and keeping " spoony " seemed to be our main occupation, and CaUsoncoUson coUs of course there were the same old calls. We con- tinued to beat our brains out in Plebe Gym, but one fine day we woke up to find 100th Night upon us. The end of Bond Box Reviews appeared to be in sight, and soon Spring Buck-up told us that June was on the road. Along with the Spring sunshine came a happier atmosphere. The upper- classmen relaxed and soon took Spring Leave. We, of course, took advantage of our brief free- dom, and dragged to the fullest. r» SAY THAT 1 HAD SPKINt; Fl Vl ll ft W i Bandbox review ¥ I. Vtitfitvmn-mm ttTittit-mrtM June was here, and with it, the usual storm of June Week. Everything seemed to run at double- time, and we cautiously started practicing letting our necks out to see how it felt. Sometimes it went hard when we got caught, but that wouldn ' t last for long. There were June Week schedules to memorize, and calls on calls on calls. There were endless p-rades, white trou ' to break out, and brass to shine and re-shine. We pulled guard and watched the upperclasses drag, " but not for us. sir! " , and we knew it wouldn ' t be long now. Came the long-awaited day before graduation, and we found ourselves " cordially " invited to dine for the noon meal with the Cows, box lunch style. (Oh well — we weren ' t hungry anyway). Then came Graduation Parade calls, and at last we were under way. We never braced so hard as then, but a few moments later came that friendly handshake, and it was all over but the shouting. All anyone could do was smile, smile, SMILE. liHiPli ? 59! ' W! !?| If . t ' " - ' ' YKARLING SIJMNEllTIME AND THE LIVIXG IS EASY It was a peaceful summer day, and we were all enjoying leave when the headlines suddenly flashed, " WAR! " , and we all knew that the Korean powder keg had blown wide open. The men who had been our Beast Barracks Firsties were now over there fighting, and soon the casualty lists would carry their names back to us. Everybody was in a mood for work at Buckner. Quite appropriately, we honored the dead of World War II by unveiling TMr aAMfMrwrTiiiifit ' iiiMiaiiMiBia BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON Despite the usual Yearling complaints, life at Buckner wasn ' t all work. Everyone was still getting used to the fact that our necks were now out — permanently, and we made the most of the " Country Club " in our free time. Lolling on the beach with the OAO, or playing bridge rated as the favorite pastime, but the hops drew more than their usual quota of snakes and draggoids, and more than one romance was started by the sight of a silvery moon over " Popolo. " For the more artistically inclined, the USMA Band provided con- certs. The big entertainment events were, of course, the Color Line shows, with each company trying to outdo the next. The big climax came with Camp Illumination, featuring " One Touch of Venice, " the story of life and love in old Italy, or why people come to West Point. Along with it there were the Buckner Stakes, and the Camp Illumination Hop. Then the Buckner Country Club closed for the season.

Lest we should forget that we were still cadets, the Tactical Department graciously consented to let us have reviews and inspections even at Buckner. There were rifles, fresh off the range to be cleaned, and combat boots to be worked over; and we found out that war or no war, inspections were here to stay at West Point. During the p-rades, a lot of us got our first crack at the saber manual, and found out just how red your face could get when you dropped it. Then it was back to school, and we found our classes moved over to the East side of Tenth Avenue, as we toiled through the labyrinths of Chemistry and Physics. Math and language still plagued us, but the biggest hazing factor was the MT G Department. They managed to dream up surveying problems on the plain; and as the fall wore on and the wintry winds began to whistle down the Hudson Valley, we learned all about getting three place results with gloves on.

The weekly reviews still rolled around, and there were always shoes to shine, not to men- tion Yearling shields to buck up. With the reduced demerit allowance, some of us found life a bit more grim, and we spent our free time walking, walking, walking. Fall parades and drill didn ' t make matters any better. The password became " Sack " as the Winter approached, and the class motto was, " An hour of sack is an hour away from the System! " The Psychology Department was sure that we were all escapists. Gloom period came, and with it came a new Supe, as General Moore left for Korea; and we welcomed General Irving in his place. A short while later, the Korean conflict was brought close to home, as we learned of General Moore ' s death, and the gloom deepened as we laid his body to rest in the Post Cemetery.

The third level interpretation is •ssS i ;.- fm Gloom Period finally passed, and Spring was just around the corner. A dose of sulphur and molasses, New York City style, was in order; and as our blood thinned, our fancies lightly turned to thoughts of love. The Weapons Room had been done over completely, and now was a haven for the dragging elements of the Corps. Everyone decided that the leather furniture and the big, new soda fountain were the greatest ever. Spring Leave came, and we fled for three short days, most of us heading for the Mecca of the Big City. Our brief taste of free- dom served only to whet our appetites for summer leave, and everyone was looking forward to the " Big Flush. " June Week came, and we relaxed now that the year was finally over. Then, as we bid our drags goodbye, we tried on our Cow shields for size, and got ready for the Air Force trip. We had hit that half way mark at last, and the uphill climb didn ' t seem quite so steep now. I cow YEAR OFF WF CO INTO TIIF WILD BLIJF YOM)FU Another June Week, and another stripe on our sleeves, as we found summer once more rolling around. Summer as usual means training, and so we found ourselves packing B-4 bags and heading for Stewart Field to begin the Air Force Trip — courtesy of the old standby C-46 with those comfortable bucket seats. At Langley we saw our first jets in action, while Selfridge introduced us to what was to become the bane of ' 53 — RADAR. Spelled anyway you look at it, it ' s still RADAR — can we ever for- .

There that long-awaited " Take Ten " does not mean that it ' s time for a cigarette. There was that empty feeling in your stomach as you went out of the 34 foot tower, and of course, suspended agony. The whole show wound up with a battalion jump that was spectacular.

After a week ' s prepara- tion, we got underway, and the first stop was Ft. Monmouth. Here we once more met our old enemy RADAR, but the Signal Corps gave us a good show. Feeling refreshed by the large amount of sack we got in radar lectures, we journeyed to II Ft. Belvoir, the home of the Engineers. We got the latest word on bridge building and road construc- tion, along with some good chow, and then went on to Ft. Eustis where they tried to make us rail- roaders and longshoremen. A royal yacht in the form of LST 378 awaited to take us to Little Creek and our meeting with the Middies. fljuypiJijpiiLiiiwpi P " I The egg ' ,beotera»seo SAILING, S7 ILIN», The ' 9° ' ° ' The first stage of the training consisted of lec- tures in the memorable Shelton Theatre. Then came Marlex, a demonstration by the Marines. After Lex I we took time out for our second week-end at Virginia Beach and the Camid Bail. With that behind us, we found H-Hour fast approaching, and then finally the real show was on. The first wave got underway, and crossed the LD on time. After a quick run to the beach, the alligators rumbled ashore, and we made our first contact with the enemy. Then the troops were pouring in to meet the stiff resistance offered by our Marine aggressor foes. The radios hummed constantly, and blank fire was raging all around. Finally, we moved inland and the landing was a success. mtmmm " mmmmmmm ll " l!|iPPiiPWii!«IP ■ " " - " - " - With a hearty groan, but a sigh of relief, the Cows headed bacl home to West Point. After several delightful days of ship board life including such joys as calisthenics, we arrived back at the Rock, and found academics leering in our faces. " Juice " and " thermo " teamed up to keep us running to lab in fatigues a good part of the time, and the struggle with the Academic Department began in earnest. But along with academics came the first of our real privileges . . . WEEKEND. True, we were allowed only one, each, weekend per semester, but we all made the most of it. Getting " pro, " and staying under in demerits occupied most of our time, but the planning and scheming that went with it was best of all. r 10 B THK ARMY TEAM ' S 111] PRIDE Ai l) DRKAM r jCf ! With the nippy Fall weather came football. There was a new innovation, as the Corps became TV stars en masse when one of our rallies was televised. Everyone was decked out in the usual costumes produced by cadet imagination, and just about everyone managed to catch a cold before the season ended. During the mess hall rallies we usually heard our old favorite, " Tiger Rag. " The guest speakers " took it off, " and the season promised to be quite successful as The Black Knights started rebuilding. Down on North Athletic Field the Goats and Engineers were getting in shape for the Thanksgiving day tilt. The Engineers won 20-0, and this should have been the tip-off, for Navy completely swamped us. It was a dark day for Army. yiWWIiiJI- .i p ipWiWiiiiiPiiP ? :- The goo ° lite; 1 {• wmmm wm pop»«P«« ' ' - v T ig ' V With spring came Spring Leave, and also ex- change weekends.

But our work was not in vain: we charged on toward our goal and at- tempted to keep the Corps and its public well informed. From the wilds of Buckner came John Lovell ami Mood. Robin, Ml Outlaw, then the Great Horned Owl. anil, from the Mighty Midgets of A-2, Mario the Monke . All of these we have faithfully reported: nor have we passed up the Great God A-Squad. One thing the Staff of 1953 woidd like to leave with the Corps is that the POINTER is no stronger and no better than the support that you, Joe Ducrot, of Any Company, USCC. give it. While it is true that only a few- names go on the mast, those do not constitute the entire staff of your magazine. With this final word, the departing Staff bows out and wc now turn it o er to ' ' - with no advice given, because we know tlicN lia e their own ideas for the coming year. (l( OMM..1 ML. Saffer MR.

Hit hard from every side, we have closed the gap.s and developed a spirit ot brotherhood and unity that will never die. no matter how far we may be scattered. After somehow struggling through Plebe year, marred onh by occasional visits to " Love " s room. " we found that a lot ot fun could be had over in the C-1 corner of Central Area with shower parties for our classmates, our immortal mousetrap for the Navy displa}, and the usual game ul liide-and-scck uitii tiie ' i " D looking for our sunlamps, hotplates, and other illegal contraband. None of tis will ever forget how Dunnuck always sacked, Raunciiy mooned over the latest girl. Botch and Al ar staitnchly defended the virtues of Texas against all. Curly Currier sweated out intramurals. Skinny George dreamed of jumping Rangers, Hogg and Rogers " ) akked it up over the last party in New York and planned another. Brent rode those mules. Robay the bookie hstened to his wire to Saratoga, Grandad Mo told us kids about life, Zini Zim always dragged, Don played poker, the Gook dragged blind, Leroy and Gary alone stayed true-blue to the OA, and Seeg battered heads for the AAA on Clinton Field. Vi e are proud to have been in C-1, and our fondest memories will always be those which take us back to the old gang. Capt. Hardin, E.F. Cdt.

On CAMID. we learned about the Navy ' s Chile con Carne and the rendezvous of interminable circling LCVP ' s. We laughed and worked as a group. Here at home we had our area birds who wore their leather well and more than our share of hives who helped the " Dean ' s Other List ' s " ' Members. Our intramural record speaks for itself about the Brigade and Regimental Plaques. Yes. all that and our perennial Corps squad men. too. Now, there are devotees to every branch among us.

L Lt did not take three years for ' 53 of G-l to warm up and to demonstrate its mettle. In the fall of ' 49, " Dougie " found a plebe elass just as eager to light the upper class as the aca- demic department. We spurred the intranuiral teams and let oiu ' hair duuri upon Recognition to spend a tour of duty at the Buckner Resort. Yearling year saw the ad cnt of " Westy ' s " Air Force Hluc and 3 demos for " smirking in ranks. " While the rest of the country was seeing flying saucers. Cow year foimd us dodging Sesqiiicentennial medallions. The Dean made an all out attack and " Red Boy " grew cold and dusty while we delved into the mysteries of squirrel cage motors and fig culture in Smyrna. After three years in the factory, the management put us to work on RTD. the Beast Detail, and at Buckner. We grabbed the reigns in Septem- ber, and by Christmas our outfit sported a drill streamer and first [ilacc in the Banker ' s Trophy race. They gaye us a dozen weekends, but the note on the OrderK Room tloor said " The Tac has. " The engineers picked their branches and the rest of us — well, we got branches too. . s we lake to our separati ' tasks with a concept of aggressiveness, teaiu work, and " esprit dc corps.

J?ouR YEARS ago on a bleak August day the class of 1953 jumped into Company J of the First Regiment with both feet; four years later we pass the heritage of the " flanker " com- pany of the third battahou on to our contented cows, yawning yearlings, anti playful plebes. Our record of four years of effort stand: two tacs broken in, assorted wheels on staff duty, one red-headed captain, four ferocious fireballs with three stripes, a sleepy first sergeant, an ancient suppi) sergeant, anil a horde of " mullets. " The years have passed quickly for some, agonizingly slow for others, e survived Buckner, the Air Force trip (in spite of radar) and suffered jointly ihroiigli a month on llie mudflats of Little Creek. The mountain of lost units on Tenth Avenue will grimly attest to our never eniling battle with the Academic Department, while our worn shoes will point to the grim efficiency of the mailed fist of the TD. The guidance of " The Otter " saw us through to graduation and gold bars. ith one foot in the sack, we have stubbornly maintained our position in South Area: and long after the last of us has passed through the South gate and the last " D " list has passed into history, the walls will still echo with our traditional battle cry of four years standing — " Hold down the noise in the 34th!

The wheat lields of North Dakola. the lhri ing industries of Massachusetts, the led I ' oresis of Wisconsin, the open mesas of Texas, all conlribuled their share. Throughout those four years, another factor has been present, intertwining itself ami hraring the entire structure of the bond — the enduring love of the K-Co femmes. The bond ' s strength has been tried and tested through those four years but no stress or strain could be found to break it. Such was the spirit of K-Co — our company.

A, ls the end draws near, and we only count the days in retrospect, tlie walls don ' t seem quite as gre), and even the flankers don ' t seem quite so bad. There will probably come a day when we will even be a little mellow about the entire place, but we ' ll always have that soft spot in our hearts reserved for the South Area Banana Bell and the inan friends we ' ve found lliere. We can even (now) uncover a soft spot for those who gave us the lasl " real " Plebe year. After all, those monsters — uh, gentle- men, were i iil iloing their dut . We ' ll always contend that our spirit as Plebes helped push the football team to that 3!5-() pasting of Navy that year. We struggled through the a Nk Nard stage called Yearling year as gracefully as possible, then muddled through Cow academics, and waited, and yvaited for that fabled First Class POWER (spelled W -E-K-K-K-IN-D). bile we were waiting, we proved a theory that we had long held: that spirit and cooperation can overcome some mighty obstacles on those " fields of friendly strife, " and that we can carry that same lesson into any phase of life. In L-Co we met and knew and liked the kind of men who can be depended upon when the road gets rough. We shall always cherish the privilege we have had of living, playing, working, and graduating together. Capt. Cooper. .L. Cdl. Andrews, K.i ' . 209 » ' i-: ifti i? " vS5 Sft««.

T, HE FALL of ' 49 found US ensconced in the halls of M-1 under the protective I wing of the class of " 50, many of whom were destined to see action less than two months after graduation. After the rigors of plebe vear we were happy to spend yearling summer at Camp Buckner. the last class to enjoy the coinitrv club atmosphere. Yearling year we spent our time trying to evade the cows and lirsties, and expectantly awaiting the coming of Christmas and Spring leaves. Let us ignore cow summer and forget thai Caniid c er existed. There is hut one thing that can be said about cow year — " Academics. " Finally the ear of ears arrived. This was our ear. the year we liad worked so long and so hard for. ith it came the opportunity to commanil. tlic ring, the even closer comradeship, and. the cidmination ol our effort, graduation! Now we reach the end of our course, with some rather interesting statistics as a result of our individual efforts. We find that ten of our number are to be married after graduation, four are considering the possibility, and the remainder are still searching. We leave with high hopes for the future and with a myriad of different ideas for coping with the problems of the future. But as we leave these hallowed walls let us not forget those of us who were less fortunate and who fell by the waysiile in our tpiest for knowledge. M-1, 3ra CLASS— Front Row: Denman JL, Ikeda KK.

Company A-2 has been called the " Orphans of the Second Regiment. " But. we all know that A-2 lives in Central rea just to remind the First Regiment what reul soldiers look like. Yes. A-2 has been active during our four years. Two drill streamers, six intramural championships, and innumerable Corps Squad players, team captains, and activity leaders (plus three worn-out Tacs) will attest to our unexcelled record. We always have had more than our share of hives, and even our goats were tlie best goats in the Corps. We lost a few of the Little Rabble to the Academic Department, after a good light, of course; and we lost a few others to the joys of marriage. But we regained strength from the turnbacks. From the lirst day we heard " A Company, fall in! " until " Graduating class, front, center, march! " we were proud of all that A Company stands for. Now that we are going on to other units and other fields, we will carry with us the (inn friendships and fond memories of work and pla to guide us throughout our careers in the armed services. To those who will (read in our footsteps, just as we have tread in the footsteps of those who came before us. we shout, " Carry on, A-2! " Lt. CoL Cathrae, W.F. Cdl. Karns.

Ahe key ote of our four years at ' est Point was " Doing things the B-2 way. " This was a wa born of close comradeship, a tenacious spirit, and our wide range of interests and experiences. Men who did things the R-2 way were in demand in the Corps: we supplied a Battalion Com- mander, and ihc Corps Squad Captains of Football. Hockey, and Soccer, beside a cheer leader, nude riilcr. Howitzer Chief, and numerous otiier aclivitv heads. None of us lla e come to regret that Beast Barracks move-up da when we llrst called llic alcoves of Old orlli Barracks " Home. " We were more thari com- pensated for being the runts of Norlli rca h our centrally located position. The barber shop, mess hall, and boodlers were nearest to our grasp. Kven the Chaplain ' s office shared our wing of barracks. Ours, loo. was an eventful four years. The Patton Memorial and Central Area Plaques added a new look to the old walls. We saw Television come to the class clubs, and the TD traded us coke machines and a luxurious Weapons Room for a new BIT I ' BOOK. May their experiences be as memorable as ours. We ourseKes will carry on in the same spirit and tradition in the service, holding always a firm bond of friendship with the men who pla the B-2 way.

The last, as always, was the best. Daddy T led us to rhow and P-rades, while John P. called the batts to. Al and Jerry found a deadbeat and left the company, but we kept El Rhodes guitar and Dick ' s company hammer. Tom passed out the poopsheets. Punchy collected them, and Jim specked them. Burdy and Gary blazed new trails through the rough, on and off the golf course, while Marty and John (alias (Jratit and Lee) fought the War of the " Rebellion. " ' George peppered the Hudson Day Line from the skeet range; Gil excelled in the heavier artillery. J.D. and Doug kept the mess hall guessing, and Stan and Jerry had the Tenth . venue crowd completeh snowed. illie was his usual popidar self with the blind drags. Monty hibernated among these grav walls during academics, and Keith ma le little cinders out of big ones at the track. Jod wrote A.M. ' s for the English Department, and Cull-Hoi completed his " Defense of the Infantryman. " Jonesy always beat the crowd down to Flirty in thai lire truck. The entire company learned the art of co er and con- cealment under the guidance of Major Kincaid. The common bond which we will always remember and be proud of is C-2. .Maj. kineaid, J. P. Cdt.

The challenges of academics, the Department of Tactics, intermurder, summer training, and required hops never founil us wanting. e always had enough hives to see the goats through; were always able to live with the Tacs when we couldn ' t outwit them: had our share of intermurder champions, individual and team: entlnisiaslically carried out our training assignmenis; aud dragged pro even when we didn ' t deserve to. No one ever had to stir up spirit among us; it merely had to be controlled. After-taps rallies were always well attended, and inanv of our stalwarts could often be luuiid atuoug ihc ranks of that musical monstrosity, the Rally Band. We will always remember thai it was E-2 that maintained controlling interest in the Cheerleaders ' Corporation, dominated the Special Program Committee and the " Diabetic " Society, quarterbacked A Squad Football from the Manager ' s Tent, and housed the command post of the Catholic Acoly te Squad.

Tliese are the things that change a civilian into a cadei. There are other things: Living through Beast Barracks, the big fall out at Recognition, Buckner. the opiiiTiisui of Carling year and the pessimism of Cow year, llie second Beast Barracks in the form of (laniid and ihe Mr Force Trip, the satisfaction of pinning on those black shields for the first time, .luarez and the Combined Vrms Trip, and the dillicult we had in breaking in a new Tac each year. Ml these have acted upon us and pnxluced the class of ' 5H of L-2, a group like all the others and yet imique — we, the graduating class at last. This is not the end, but merely the beginning, for we are now reaching toward the ideals that are always ahead of us — and we ' ve made a good start in our little group. The close bonds that have grown between us will stav with us in whatever we do.

The Air Force hail some, but they were in Florida — 9,000 miles away. Normal air transport could make the light in time, but tearing down a heli- copter — reassembling it in Korea — would waste a week. So the Air Force turned to a Douglas C-124 Globemaster, the flying giant that covers thousands of miles nonstop with a 25-ton payload. Globemaster opened its clam-shell doors and swallowed the helicopter whole, took off, and reached Japan in 72 hours. Next day, at the Korean front, our men had the helicopter they needed. Performance of the Globemaster in action is another example of Douglas leadership in aviation, faster and farther with a greater payload is a basic of all Douglas design. «■ JSH ' ' ' m m .

WATERBURY, CONN. 414 CHESTERFIELD FIRST PREMIUM QUALITY CIGARETTE TO OFFER BOTH REGULAR KING-SIZE BOTH regular and king-size Chesterfields are premium quality cigarettes and come in the smart white pack. BOTH contain only those proven ingredients that make Chesterfield the best possible smoke: the world ' s best tobaccos, pure, more costly moistening agents (to keep them tasty and fresh), the best cigarette paper that money can buy-nothing else. BOTH are much milder with an extraordinarily good taste and, from the report of a well-known research or- ganization — no unpleasant after-taste. BOTH are exactly the same in all respects. There is absolutely no difference except that king-size Chesterfield is larger — contains considerably more of the same tobaccos — enough more to give you a 21% longer smoke, yet costs little more.

C: 434 THE AMERICAN ROAD — XIV The boy who put the world on wheels The boy was ten years old. slim as a bugg ' - whip and quick as a cricket. He had a pas- sion for inachinerv. He tinkered with all the clocks in the old white clapboard larm- house until they tock-tocked the right time. The neighbors around Dearborn began to bring him their ailing timepieces. So voung Henrv Ford set up shop on a shelf in his bedroom. He ground a shingle nail down into a tiiu screwdriver, made tweezers from his mother ' s corset-stavs, and little fdes from knitting needles. All his life he tinkered with watches, and never had to use a jeweler ' s eveglass. For he could almost see with his long thin steel-sprung fingers — the fingers of the hands that put a nation on wheels. He learned how to run and fix and make everv kind of machine there was. Then be began on the new idea of the time — a horseless carriage. In 18% lie trundled his first little ma- chine out into the allev back of Baglev . venue in Detroit, and ran it around the block. It had two cylinders, four bicycle wheels and he steered it with a tiller, like a boat. It still runs — and it has had 36.000,000 descendants. His idea was to make a useful thing — as useful as possible, as low-priced as possible — a car for evervone.The Fori! Motor Com- panv was founded, on June 16, 1903. in the hope the world was ready for the idea. This vear is the Fiftieth . nniversarv of the Ford Motor Companv. To us this anniversary has one meaning above all others — it means that this is still the kind of world in which a farm bov ' s uselul idea can gradually bring about a betler way of life for millions of people. Henry Ford brought only his idea, his car and his bare hands to the company fifty years ago. Then the pavements ended just outside the cities, in dust tracks. Now the American Road is a symbol of a never-ending search for progress, peace and plenty for all mankind. The Ford Motor Companv, celebrating its oOth Anniversary, is dedicated to one simple proposition; the best along that road is vet to be.

Before you decide on your next car see what Chevrolet has done to make driving safer All this happened some months ago. In a special research laboratory, engineers put a new Che rolet body in a giant machine. It tried to t " ist that body until every square inch was under terrific strain. Another machine tried to bend it. This new body pro ed 10% more rigid even than last year ' s sturdy Chevrolet body. Out at the General Motors Proving Grounds, the research went on and on. Part after part was tested and compared. These tests proved that this was the safest Chevrolet ever built. It ' s a car we believe worthy of your careful consideration on every count. After all, does n ' t it seem logical that the world ' s largest car producer can give you an extra measure of « the important qualities you want . . . and still sa ' e you money by making Chexrolet the lowest-priced line in its field! A C C H E VRO LET FORT MONTGOMERY, NEW YORK New strength and safety in Chevrolet ' s fine Fisher Body. The new Chevrolet weighs up to 200 pounds more than other cars in its field. Much of this extra weight comes from Chevrolet ' s stronger, more rigid bod - construction. You con see all around you. The new one-piece curved wind- shield, and new, wide rear win- dows provide excellent visibilit ' in all directions. Easier, smoother brakes. Chev- rolet brakes are the largest in the low-price fieUl. .And the ' -e been remarkably improved for 1953. Extra reserves of power when you need it. An entirely new 115-h.p. " HIue-Flame " engine is teamed with the new Powerglide. On gearshift models, vou get the greatly advanced 108-h.p. " Thrift- King " engine. Both high-compres- sion engines bring you wonderful new performance and important savings in gasoline! Now you can have Power Steer- ing in a low-priced car. Vou park with finger-tip ease and steer with greater safety under all conditions. Optional at extra cost and avail- able on all models. Pass with greater safety with Chevrolet ' s new Powerglide.
