The HOWITZER 1954 i T i » D E D I d The Song of West Point It must have been a night of brilliant stars When Henry Hudson, sleepless, pacing slow On quiet deck, forgot a while his dreams And felt the power of this rugged land. The centuries have passed, and now the stars Show towers of rock and arches, battlements That stretch into the overlooking hills To form a chain of stone to guard the land. Stern eagles carved in stone upon the walls Stand guard o ' er walkways lined with whispering trees And silent cannon purchased far away In battle ' s test; the price was told in blood. For this has been the home of many men, Who in their time on many smoking fields Have faced the mortal shock of flying steel So that a land, their land, might live to grow. And somewhere under God these men are met, Their service over, and from there they watch This little piece of land from whence they came. And though in countenance they differ much, There is a strange resemblance each to each; For in the hearts of all of them there lives A thing that does not change from man to man, That might be likened to a kind of song. ii , !■ r T- i l T I O N A thousand, thousand different little notes Diffused unnoticed in a melody That slowly, very slowly, came to song: The bright sunbeaten area first day. Commands that come by thousands everywhere. The new cadet confusion and the long Apprenticeship of shining hard-toed shoes. The collar hook and starch and bayonets. And B-plate nicks and twisted crossbelt maze. The pledge, the many nights with Bugle Notes, And chanting the Missouri National. The little Christmas trees in littered rooms. The first hop — evening gowns and heavy snow. The long awaited golden yearling pin. Camp Buckner, music out across the lake. The dusty kick of recoil on the ranges, And rolling seaborne tractors in assault. Red tracers in the Georgia night, and airfields. And rows of sleeping men in bucket seats. ! he Plain, where only those who march there know The dips and rolls and how precision comes From constant chatter up and down the line: Butt right, step ofj, and hold it back and cover. And dust that rises on the pivot point Among the rows of flashing bayonets, And marching to the drum and bugle sound. And thinkini? there ' $ the p-ecite%t hand there is. r ' -$. w i The bandbox and the quiet cold reviews, And capes turned back on heavy overcoats. The giant SLAP that follows Order arms. The flash of guidons swinging on the turn. And vines along the stony battlements. And standing high up on the hill at dusk, The Chapel, etched in light, and all alone, A massive picket to the thunderheads. The OA ' s waiting on the old pipe fence, Flirtation Walk, the Rock, the Arch, the turnstile, The Field House, rosin, flying spikes and cheers. And, softly, " Army Blue " in CuUum Hall, And yellow moonlight on the hills and river. And Delafield at sundown, picnic echoes. Then back again to Grant Hall and the bus — A plebe says Six o ' clock and all is well . , . l J The minutes being called on Monday morning. And cold and dark and stumbling Reveille. The fog of morning hanging on the Plain, The steam that rises from the iron grates When snow is cleared; the cries of heave it there! A roommate calling Go get that tenth, George, As men bookiaden stream through sallyports En route to recitations, labs, reviews. f A The Academics: An there any questions? Discussion, then Take Boards, take problem pamphlets. The language coaches mumbling in the sinks. And after supper, crowded sallyports. The B-board ' s little sign Tac has, no mail, The library, and the winding little stairs. The gym: Now move out, head on shoulder contact, Wet leather headgear of the boxing room. - -fuS 5 ■ ' m-. 4 -S: - S ' if 7- The rallies — waves of cheers from wall to wall, Bright Navy signs — the Big Game coming up. The march to echo drumbeats at the game, And standing for the Long Corps at the end. The struggle for the Banker ' s Trophy Points, And teams preparing in the crowded sinks. Then fighting hard obsessed with victory. But cheering for opponents at the end. And thus the small inconsequential things. Which taken one by one are less than nothing, (Like little flutes in giant symphony) Each adds unnoticed music to the theme To help us make at last the West Point song. A hymn, serene and quiet, beautiful. That nestles softly in the hearts of us Who go to years of service. There can be No way to tell exactly what it is: It ' s love of country, it ' s desire to serve. It ' s pride of leadership, it ' s sense of debt To men gone by who made this possible. And to today ' s old soldier and recruit. But though the song may never be explained. It lives. And when these singing hearts are stopped, A long gray line of men with God await To welcome home a brother and his song. % r President of the United States THE HONORABLE DWIGHT D.

CLASS HISTORY CLASS HISTORY The bright sunbeaten area first day The new cadet confusion and the long Apprenticeship of shining hard-toed shoes The first hop-evening gowns and heavy snow The long-awaited golden yearling pin And rolling seaborne tractors in assault Red tracers in the Georgia night, and airfields, And rows of sleeping men in bucket seats. » »sr JLn a hundred degrees of apprehen- sion, anticipation, and doubt, and exactly ninety-two degrees of summer heat, the Class of 1954 trekked to West Point on the morning of 5 July 1950 from all corners of the land. Bright sunlight and river haze cloaked the gray walls with mystery of what lay ahead. Our holiday spirit was irretrievably shattered in the area, on meeting those cool immaculate, god-like first class- men, symbolic of our ordered existence in the months ahead. Promptly, we dropped bags and began running, answering questions, . . . odfeet-tak . . . learning " the position of attention, " becoming uniformed. The unseen hand of the system squeezed sweat from soft civilian bodies. We stopped double- timing at the swearing-in ceremony late that afternoon in the theater. Those hush moments of dedication will be remembered. The men who had stood there four years before were then reporting for final examinations in Korea. A myriad of unremembered details of the first month spelled out one word — busy. We learned to march, eat, stand tall, dress, always reminded at first of our deficiency in simple tasks. Bayonet training, rolling . . . ' W ' t. ' mi f . . . field packs, preliminary M-1 training, long marches, and TTIS helped make shining shoes, cleaning brass, and parading be purposeful and important. Memorizing the things a plebe must know, learning what honor and duty mean kept our minds from growing stale. And we began to appre- ciate simple pleasures like a candy bar, or having time to write a letter and walking without command merely from being deprived of them for so long. Getting set for the plebe hike filled our imaginations and absorbed our energies until the big morning when we swung down the hill to South Dock, and . . . rm f» WWl . • • • fiied into the " ducks " to be shuttled to the other side ofthe Hudson. We seemed to cover phenomenal distances along ingeniously contrived routes which returned us to bivouacs 100 yards from where we were the night before. If you weren ' t on KP or guard there was a chance to go swimming occasionally. But despite the marching always uphill and never down, we liked the green outdoors more than barracks life. Then after the long forced march on the last night we reached " home " again- " Are any of you men tired.?-NO! " We began moving, to join our companies and be presented to the Corps. %] Sir, rm required to prove AHE small harassments of Beast Barracks were soon forgotten in the daily struggle in academics. You wondered if, between the English and Math departments ' daily pounding, you ' d turn out to be flat instead of well- rounded. Upperclassmen seemed to be lurking behind every corner, and made you nervoua until you began to know what was expected of you to function. The PE department ' s torture chamber erased slide rule gloom, and through Plebe boxing and wrestling, you discovered that even your best friend might be forced to clobber you, so self- defense was the best defense. A great football victory over Michigan, coupled with an all too brief taste . . . ID i i ... of New York night life highlighted the fall. We were stunned at our loss to Navy, and vowed then we ' d repay them. We waited patiently for Christmas and the upperclassmen ' s departure, and it finally did come. This was our first chance to be in command, and we remember most the feeling of owning the place, the little Christmas trees on our mantelpieces. Midnight Mass and chapel. These, besides ten days of dragging, skiing, sack, ice-skating, and comparative freedom, were a mighty shot of adrenalin. The invisible process of class ties becoming firm, and binding us to each . . . . . . other forever had a grand beginning. The Class of ' 54 was on its way! Then a cold January 2nd, calls, gloom, and the long winter snows fraught with academic crises every day made plebe life seem endless. Intermurder, Special Programs, and the 100th Night Show relieved the routine. Spring Leave again saw the upperclassmen evaporate and gave us a short, happy holiday here, and afterward we could see our goal clearly. The pace became more intensive toward the end, but you knew that each day brought you closer to Recognition and summer leave. And then, in a burst of sunlight and parades, came the rigors of . . . . . . June Week. Barracks guard, parades, being braced even by the old grads, and calls forty-eight hours a day miraculously ended in those last few harried moments between the Plain and Central Area. As we thought back to that impossible day of 5 July 1950, we formed our lines and proudly shook hands with the finest men in the world! i irades, ii«ii ;.A7 t O be surrounded by green walls instead of gray relieved our Air Force eyes, but few readjusted immediately after our first leave. But Buckner ti ' as different. You became numb to long weekday hours and yearned-for week- ends, dragging. Chapel Point, the magic stars, and stuff. Practical work with weapons made training interesting, however, and we knew for the first time the thrill of firepower, the elation of a " bull, " the humiliation of " Maggie ' s Drawers. " We revolved from the M-1 to pistols, carbines, machine guns, mortars, and recoilless rifles. Hours with ramrods and bore cleaner rewarded slow learners. I m ' Jr ±1 holds especially tender memories; six shifts of firsties to run us two miles, but we shaped up — had time for free time intermurder at 1700. Engineer booby traps claimed many for the mine warfare cemetery and each company vied with the others in bridge building records. Crossing a simple little river is not always simple. ARSOPs, Can- noneers ' Hop, fire direction center, and other ballistic mysteries featured artillery training. At the end we played FO at McNair. Our introduction to Armor was impressive, but too brief. MT G tried to get us lost at Proctoria, but most of us made it back. And then the Owl ' s coup d ' gruce, the night problem. No mere stroll, this. Half real field operations and half playing capture the flag with firecrackers, but you were more confident at the end of it. Buckner weekends were highlighted with sack, picnics, dragging, 1929 movies, and color line shows. Camp Illumination provided the final grand speaacle with its floating stage, Shakespeare from a bridge pontoon, digs at the tacs, good clowning, and fireworks. Summer ended too abruptly; we remember . . . . . being the last class who doused the reveille cannon in Popolopen, and the only class who ever marched back! Then the flurry of moving, rejoining our companies, and being awed at meeting our remembered images in the new plebes. Yearling life was dull. But we all joined clubs; we found new challenges in calculus and chemistry, we were proud of the football team. It was good to relax, but not too far. Somehow, finally Christmas came and sophisticated . . . ISDGKNf ? { " sr f ... ' 54 left for home, where Santa Claus filled our stocking instead of the OC. Resignedly, we were overcome by gloom period on our return, but you could drag when it wasn ' t too cold, go to Special Programs, and there seemed to be an exciting Sesquicen- tennial celebration every week. When you were broke, you played poker with medallions. Finally, Spring, the soft hygiene course. Flirty, winding up the score for the halfway mark, watching enviously while ' 52 shined its bars, and then June! We settled back and waited for the summer " make " list. fcl - ' %1 .t i .1 i » . fj HI S. ' - S00 V- lfj» !.J? After a long, duU hibernation as yearlings, we looked forward eagerly to gray shields and bars — for some. Following our first June Week out of captivity we visited Fort Monmouth (all the radio sets in the world in one place) on the first leg of our trek south toward CAMID. Roaming the board- walk in Asbury Park gave some their first glimpse of the ocean. Our first quasi-voluntary hop was at Monmouth— training in social courage — oh, well, the hop managers dragged pro. By usee troop train complete . . . . . . with box lunches we arrived at Fort Belvoir. The goats became cynics but enjoyed driving bulldozers; the hives nodded eagerly at everything and gloated over their tenths. Sailing to Norfolk on the USS Sanborn we learned the dubious coniforts of troop- ship life, or how the Navy packs sardines. Ship-to-shore sack in the Shelton Theater, excursions to Virginia Beach, crawling up and down cargo nets, and fighting off the Middies at the Camid Ball all come back to memory. The big landing was a success. The first wave splashed in, ploughed through the barbed wire, and kept the . . . v ' si t " ' ' ' ' . . . aggressors down while the later waves landed. A drenching rainstorm climaxed the show and made every man a swimmer. Fort Lee was a wel- come return to Army life, replete with juicy steaks served by officers in the cook ' s school, a Wac review espe- cially for us, and pro drags at the hop. Then on to Fort Eustis, home of trains and tugboats. The heat got some of us, but we were getting fat anyway. The biggest moment was boarding the ship which took us all the way up to South Dock and for once the Band hailing our return and the old gray walls meant good news: 28 precious days of leave! vyUR brief return to normality ended all too soon, but the shock of coming back after leave was softened by the Air Force Trip. Half of us went to Eglin Field and the rest to Maxwell. At Eglin we were greeted with " Illegitimus non carborundum. " It was handy during the next two years. That spin in a T-33 made Beast Barracks seem worth- while, and for amusement there was a long weekend in Panama City. Even lectures and radar became more bear- able with the Air Force; we knew then we had lots of pilots in the class. A short hop brought us to Maxwell, more planes. Sac, Tac, and fine chow. We knew the TD had gone . . . ... to pieces when we were awarded a second weekend; Montgomery still evokes some fond memories for some of us. A spectacular aerial firepower demonstration at Eglin concluded the Air Force training, and gave meaning to the long series of static displays, demonstrations, and long bus rides to firing ranges. Burp cup in hand, we wobbled up to Fort Bragg, all spit and polish and a little of that discipline stuff. The 82nd Airborne was out to make an impression, and they did. Despite the loss of a few stomachs, some of us took extra jumps out of the 34 foot tower, and then . . . . . . there was suspended agony to delight the hardier souls. We marched to " chow " and became intrigued with parachute packing. A full regiment jump finished our training, including, among other things, the Class of ' 54 playing combat soldiers by filling out the ' troopers ' squads and following them on a problem against the ag- gressor. Finally, the summer training trips came to an end when we landed again at Stewart Field; the long grind was about to begin. .u a V FORI .HE Mechanics Department con- vinced us they were playing us in a record contest, when, after the first week, ' 54 led the D list, as usual. Electricity classes were completely mysterious at first; in the goat lab sec- tions, the instructors walked in pairs for safety. Social Sciences became a real challenge, and an interesting one. You could get away from it all and go all over the world just by opening your atlas. Off-duty interests were divided between football and the Pres- idential election campaigns. We did all but set up soapboxes on Diagonal Walk; it was good to see an " old grad ' win in November. warn ■mem ' ti i XhE golden day came! Impressed with our new status, we hurried back from graduation to get those black shields on fast. After a few days of recovering from the shock of not being turned out, we grabbed B-4 bags and burp cups, and flew to Wright-Patterson for a final look at the Air Force.

' ' Movies, good golf and swim- ming, and then into a soft Air Force sack. The air show, complete with sonic booms and graceful, bird-like ets, climaxed our training. At this aoint, ' 54 was about 99% behind the stick. T F B Then down to sweltering Fort Knox, We never saw the gold vaults, but who can forget those cross-drive transmissions and cross country char- acteristics? We all got a good eyeful of Armor, and left knowing that despite the dust, tanks were a comforting thing for the Infantry to have along. The chow at Knox was exceptional; and just to keep us in parade trim, we were privileged to march to meals. Back into the maw of the mammoth C-124 ' s, we next flew to Oklahoma, where we were disgorged at Fort S The Artillery School conducted some very fine training. Weather was pleasant, and the change to western scenery made some of us easterners take notice. We lived in Sill ' s stucco version of Bancroft Hall — but the Navy was never like this. Guns, howitzers, " Atomic Annie, " . . . -mimmimmmmm »- l(g K wss . . . fire direction center, all were avail- able, and interesting. Wished Gunga Din had been our S4 at the firepower demonstration — canteens are handy at 1 10°. The citizens of Lawton gave us a Buffalo Barbecue — definitely the best meal of the whole trip. . And then Fort Bliss — sand, AAA, guided missiles, and Juarez. Nike ' s mysteries had rough competition from the Sunday diversions available across the border. The bullfight was all we had imagined, but only one sport among many. We returned with empty wallets and lots of souvenirs. A long flight brought us to Fort Benning — sun, sweat and the squad in the attack. We reviewed again what we thought we already knew about infantry, got blisters on the bleachers, and saw some spectacular demonstrations and prob- lems. A nice hop, some good golf and swimming, and soon we winged . . . ,-;«r ' . . . back to Stewart to go our separate summer ways. Half went on leave — the luckier half stayed on to train for Beast Barracks, Buckner and RTD. Instructor training was like our own Beast Barracks packed into two weeks — amazing what we had forgotten about close order drill and the M-1. The three groups split, and after the lull of the long July 4th weekend, the real test came. The few at Buckner learned the finer points of the instructor ' s art in an advanced MIT course, and made the yearlings toe the line. Junior officer duties were the forte of the RTD group at Forts Jackson and Knox. The chance to participate in a real training pro- gram from the inside out for a change also involved some long hours and hard work. The New Cadet Detail was so busy on 7 July that no one had a chance to reminisce, but settled down to greeting the new class in earnest. Somehow you got them all back from . . , s ... the C-Store and managed to teach the first drill lesson. The march out to Battle Monument at retreat was a satisfying experience, indeed. Every- where the tempo accelerated — PE, drill, lectures, shower formations— all done in the new " quiet " manner. An occasional dip at Delafield felt good, and maybe you even got a weekend. It was much the same everywhere — so busy that only the present mattered— July flew by and we gladly, a little proudly, changed places with the new detail. There was the yen to get home, to travel, go to New York or Texas or Paris — well, just away was enough. The training of recruits, yearlings, and new plebes continued. New field soldiers took shape during August under the hard glance of the new . . . (A 1 . . . drillmasters, and spirit grew, and the Plebe Hike summarized the summer ' s efforts. The lost September rolled in — Labor Day weekend — a new confusion of academics — renewing acquaintances — swapping stories — the grind again, but with a new twist, because each event was for the last of four times. Ring Weekend will be long remembered — our eyes were as shiny as the new gems for long afterward. The football season wasn ' t unusual until that day the team and the Corps caught fire against Duke. 54 ' s first great contribution to the gridiron annals gave us Game of the Year, Defensive Line Play and Indi- vidual Defensive Play of the Year. We were not just inspired against Penn, but really a better team. And then the grand coup ' against Navy — the ca-pture of the goat, capped by the sweet flavor of a bone crushing victory a great year! V .1 w , (fm J ' A-- ' m i flK - feert Trophy . GR ' s and Christmas Leave rushed up, and we sailed into gloom period, books somewhat shoved out of reach by cars, insurance, branch conferences, physicals, wedding plans. The days dwindled down, never fast enough, but winter intermurder, a little skiing, ordering uniforms, long weekend over Washington ' s Birthday, the engineering problem, all filled in the gaps. Finally, 100th Night Show-BENO-gave us a chance to laugh about the four years, the system, the memorable things. Spring Leave was the signal to begin the real anticipation, and sustained us through the stol-m of packing and discarding four years of accumulated junk, the bittersweet taste of the last Spring Drill period, parades, the million lost details. After the Ordnance Trip, you knew June was here— the last rung r vfuvn ... of the ladder. The Week rushed by at 120 per, and every minute meant you were coming closer — the Supper, our last Hop, the Supe ' s reception, a final singing salute from the Glee Club. On 8 June 1954 most were tired, a few sleepy, but to a man, wide awake to walk up for the little white tube that meant so much. Caps in the air, on the dead run back to the area, and the thrill of your first salute — you made it! We ' d never do it over again, but we ' re proud it ' s done — to our class- mates everywhere, Ave, atque vale! .S Ivm mmmi ACTIVITIES EDWARD E. RODERICK DONALD F. PANZER Section Editors WILLIAM W.

POLICY COMMITTEE GENERAL COMMITTEE To the Policy Committee falls the re- sponsibility of formulating and standardiz- ing the Fourth Class System. The biggest part of this committee ' s time is occupied in the writing and publishing of the pamphlet Fourth Class Customs and Traditions . The committee also is concerned with the de- tails of class authorizations, uniforms, and the resale of books. The First Class General Committee was founded in 1952. It is the responsibility of the Committee to assimilate various ideas of the Corps and present them for ap- proval. These cover everything from ad- ministratum of the Hotel Thayer to the handling of our automobiles.

Membership was boosted 50 ' , as 750 cadets desired to arn, think, speak, and be well informed. The council was organized into four sec- tions: debate, forum, speech, and adminis- tration with the sideline activities of SCUSA, the National Tournament and Sun- day Evening Lecture Scries. The debate section taught logic, elo- quence, and skill at refutation. Cash prizes and trips were added rewards for participa- tion. There were fourth class and intra- mural debate tt)urnaments, home debates, and sixteen coveted trips. Debaters trav- elled to the New York, Philadelphia, and Boston areas, while others journeyed as far And furthermore, gent AND FORUM as Miami, New Orleans, and Los Angeles . The forum offered opportunities in tour phases: speakers, seminars, home discus- sions, and trips. The speaker program offered cadets the opportunit)- to infor- mally listen to and question such eminent authorities as General Telford Taylor. At seminars cadets gained an insight into many current problems, and developed the confidence to express their ideas. The most industrious discussers enjoyed trips to the same distant places as the debaters. A new and successful endeavor of the Council was the speech department. This section supplemented debate and forum by offering speech courses, oratorical contests, extemporaneous speech contests, and $400 in prizes. The speech course gave the stu- dent the poise and confidence necessary to speak effectively before an audience. This the cadet could successfully employ in ora- torical and extemporaneous speech con- tests. Fortunately the Council was blessed with many silent members. These typists, poop-sheet artists, and company reps formed the administrative section which handled all the red tape for the entire De- bate Council and Fcirum. Without these silent slaves on the sidelines the Council could never have carried on its extensive activities. Bernard B.iruch. Elder Statesman Admiral Radford, Chairman, jCS The Council opened still broader liori- zt)ns in developing the Sunday Evening Lecture Series. These lectures were held in the Army Theater on Sunday nights. The Series was launched by the legendary Ber- nard Baruch. General Lucius Clay, Chester Btnvles, and Doctor Robert Oppcnheimer continued to enthrall audiences about na- tional security. The hfth annual Student Conference on United States Affairs- SCUSA V- was held at West Point from 2 to 5 December. This conference, sponsored by the Carnegie Foundation, was initiated and adminis- trated by the Council. Cadets and delegates from fifty universities attended plenary sessions where they were addressed by dis- SCUSA Trip planners tinyuishcd speakers, and meetings where thev discussed " The National Security Pt)licv of the United States. " The Council also boasts " the " top de- hate tournament in the country. The Eit;hth National Invitational Debate Tour- nament was held from 21 to 25 April. To this event the thirty-four best debate teams in the country came to West Point tt) compete for the National Champion- ship. The best team deserved that title, for It debated both sides of the question " Re- solved, that the United States should adopt a policy of free trade, " twelve times in three davs. I SPECIAL PROGRAMS The Special Program Committee of 1954 outdid itself this year. With President Per- cey at the wheel, the Committee managed to bring to the Corps some very fine enter- tainment. Their job of holding up morale during the Gloom Period was done in a superior manner. Such programs as the Variety Package with Fran Moore and Harvey Stone, the Don Cossack Chorus, the Toast of West Point with Eileen Bar- ton and Morie Amsterdam, and the annual Dixieland band of Eddie Condon were paraded before us tor our pleasure. The Swedish Gymnastic Team amazed us with stunts performed at the Olympics. The La- fayette College Chorus and Gershwin Con- cert Orchestra on two different occasions gave us music beyond compare. Aurther Treacher amused us, and the plebes heard Earl Spicer, the ballad singer, during their Christmas fallout. But these programs didn ' t just get here by themselves. Orchids must go to the men behind the scenes who helped Percey. Thoreson, Burnett, O ' Mara, Schemmer, Wilcox, all of these made it possible for the Corps to enjov one of the best seasons of Gloom Period entertain- ment. Sitrme,: Schemmer, Percy, Wilcox.

DIALECTIC SOCIETY DIALECTIC SOCIETY The Dramatic Society of the Corps of Cadets. So goes the letter head on the stationery of the Dialec- tic Society. Most know that the 100th Nite Show is put on hy the Society, and that those Broadway shows, including ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, were brought to the Corps bv the Society. However, tew have much ot an idea of what gt)es on be- hind these activities. The Dialectic Souetv has a nieiiibership of over two hundred men. Nearly all these men are behiiul the scenes, including stage hands and adminis- trative personnel of various kinds. ' ery few people realize that many ot the present cadet organizations such as the Debate Council and the Howitzer had their be- ginnings within the Society. Although still fostering other cadet activities, this year, the Society concentrated on the pro- duction of the 100th Nite Show this year. The writing of the show started between the barracks at Fort Knox, and it was changed even up ti) the last performance.

This show had everything: better-than-Broadway mu- sic, an understandable plot, outstanding choreography, fast action, variety, and effective satire on cadets, their drags, and " The System. " Beno ' s theme exploited the foibles of cadet romance so universally, it had everyone nostalgically recalling his own dragging experiences. The hero was a first classman whose home town girl came East after a long separation. She gave him a BENO when she became interested in a loc Scarbonza ka-beefs Yuu AniLipolis boys should mttt Gen disc jockey. But our hero bounced back fast, snaked his roommate ' s drag on a blind date, and triumphantly reclaimed his A-Pin from the old flame. In the hnale the cadets came riding onto the stage in a Jaguar (early first class privileges), met two well-known representatives of the TD at a bermuda shorts party, and after the A-Pin was replanted on the new girl, " lOO Days ' Til June " rang in our ears. Frank Sweeney, Bill Barnes, and Roy Thorsen furnished excellent writing and direction; and Ed Vallentiny, Dick Ziegler, Stan Choate, and a whole host of ' 54 Hamlets completely entertained us. i 1 ifl K m .

On the road, the spirited singing of the Glce Club has entertained the audiences of the Ed Sullivan and Jackie Gleason T ' shows. At West Point they are heard and seen at cadet hops, the Christmas Concert, and the annual June Week Concert.

The Seminar is organized to supplement the regular courses in English literature by providing an opportunity for advanced study and discussion.

Down in the cellars and high in the dusty garrets of West Point you ' ll hnd these men, pouring over vast piles of old photos and writing at the ledgers long into the nights. These are marked men, who walk in the shadow of a deadline which is always " tomorrow, " and find an outlet for tensit)ns and frustrations at the weekly council-table, where Hal Howes presides over the snarling pack. The work of the Howitzer begins on the first day of Beast Barracks and continues until the wonderful words " Class Dis- missed " echo through the Field House. While the upperclasses kept the records for the first years, the 1954 HowixzER-men started in on the ground floor (sweeping out the office) and worked their way through the four years to the command positions ( " Someone sweep the floor!

Headed by a hard-hitten, stone-hearted straw boss who is torn between thumbing through dead- lines and saddlesoaping his bull-whip, is the Editorial group. The Business group is under a money-pinching tight-fisted miser who tears his hair at the thought of spend- ing and waste. For this our 58th edition, Roger Browne headed the lirst group, jiin Jarrett the second, and Hal Howes, as Chairman of the Howitzer Board, was mediati)r, trouble shooter, and director of traffic. From the first day the story t)f the class of ' 54 filtered into the Howitzi-r olfice, and the steady flow of photographs, write-ups, cartoons, and business contracts soon forced the staff into the corners of the room as the pile of information grew and grew, until in the last year the 1954 lirsties took a deep breath, gritted their teeth in silent determination, smashed their glasses in the fireplace, and leaped together into the giant mound of records. For ten wild weeks, they ricocheted from wall to wall, writing, cutting, rewriting, arranging lay- out, scu-ching for IxTCcr pliotos, arguiiii;, L.illin tile printer . . . the piil lislier, all advertisers, and the piiblieity men, to tie them mto the general scramble.

Hv that time the staff, the olliee, and all the poopsheets were dissolved into one huge quivering mass, about 40 feet square, from ceiling to floor. Roger fought his way to the surface, palled the rest of the gang out one by one, and held a meeting on top of the heap. " I have an idea, " he bellowed scattering froth. " Let ' s take this whole thing out to the Navy Rally, distill it, and sell the HowrrziiR in bottles for Wilson Cleaner! " Wt qui .ted him down and went back to work. Finally the book began to appear, page by page. As it grew tatter the staff grew thinner. At the meeting of February 4th, the secretary noted in the minutes that Cliff was on his eighth appointment to see the psvchiatrist for an inferiority complex he picked up from hearing so many " NO ' s.

The big day came when all the layouts were shoveled into a truck and dumped in front of the printing plant. At this point, Howes whispered softly, " Remember your Regiment " and slumped to the floor. The Book came back, and the Howitzer Board met to examine it. Tears ran from hollow eyes as they thumbed through the pages. Jarrett pushed his class ring further up on his wrist and said, " Let ' s don ' t give any away. Let ' s keep them all. " Muns nodded to two burly cows who closed in and Jim was led away. The Book hit the news- stand the next morning. Jodv Rode, Chief Senhhlc B Somehow, every other Friday night, the Pointer (oiiicial Corps publication ) seemed to appear on the desk |ust in time to deter us from studying for most of " call to quarters.

We |ust thumbed through the pages the Ring issue, the football issue ( " This is Army ' s year " ), theHalloween issue( " Who soaped theSouth Guard Room windows?

Tiny Tomsen, photo editor; Tom Martin, fiction editor. After a smoky session in the office, assignments were made and deadlines set. On D-Day (deadlines day i the material was piled high on the desk of Lt. Col. Halpin, officer-in-charge, or of Lt. Col. Jacunski, art advisor, for approval. From there the material fell to the hands of Irv Katenbrink, who worked with Dave McKay and Mr. Moore, the publisher, in organizing the pages.

All is not writing, nor editing, nor circu- lating, however. George Kronsbein, advertising man- ager, can vouch for that. So can Ron Morris, business manager; Jack Delamain, sales manager; Louis Ginn, treasurer; Max Janairo, office manager; Bill Winston, personnel manager; and Don Alameda, calendar editor. Their jobs are all essential, all time-consuming. In addi- tion to the magazine, the Pointer staff ' prides itself each year on the publication of the Pointer Calendar, Diicrot Pepys, and the ll ' eekemi Pointer. Chaplains Pulley and Gnpc CADET CHAPEL Sitting on top of the hill, the Cadet Chapel resembles a guardian that has been built for the specific purpose of protecting the men who worship God. Besides actu- ally worshipping there, the cadets also participate in the religious activities that are connected with the church. The best example is the Cadet Choir. Over 200 cadets are members of this chosen group which provides music to beautify the impressive service held each Sunday. In addition to its duties at the Chapel every Sunday, the Choir travels twice a year to assist in the services held at St. Cadet Chapel Acolytes First Row: Ginn, Chapman, Moss, Momberger, Keener. Second Row: Bahin. Bidwell, Dahi, Littlelield, Buttz. Cadet Chapel Ushers Sullivan, Bard, Serbe. Second Row: Zartman, Dahl, Burris. John the Divine ' s and St. Thomas ' Episco- pal Church. The cadet ushers and acolytes who assist in the services are taken from the members of the Corps. The chimes which are heard before the 11:00 service every Sunday and each night at six are plavcd hv cadets also. The Sunday School Department under Fred Quails is operated entirely by cadets. Organized and conducted by the men of all classes who volunteer to do the teaching, the Sunday School here at the Point offers an excellent opportunity for the children of post personnel to learn about Christ.

JEWISH CHAPEL The Jewish cadets who attend services in the old chapel are fortunate both for a fine rahhi and choir. Col. Lintner, who organized the squad when he was previously stationed here, is again imparting his inspiration to the many cadets. Music is perhaps the most beautiful facet of the religious ceremony. The Chapel Choir, which sings the entire choral part of the service in Hebrew, is becoming well known. This is revealed by the continual invitations to synagogues throughout this part of the country. As far away as Balti- more and Boston their reputation has spread and they have been warmly wel- comed. 123 LANGUAGE CLUBS RUSSIAN— fm Row, Sitting): Pawowski, Wcbcr, Stan- lev, Teberg, lanni, Hart, Mehserlc, Winkclman.

The hrst is to provide Its members with facilities and informa- tion to further their interests and educa- tion in the various fields of ordnance. The seci)nd is to disseminate to the Corps as well as to club members technical information which is of general interest. To accomplish its missions the club offered courses in welding, machine shop, hand loading, range firing of foreign and domestic weapons, and motor repair. Lectures were given covering everything from new cars to land mines. ORDNANCE CLUB ne Encmv Merchandise 126 Corps interest in tlie CCC is increasing.

It is 35 ' X ' 80 ' , with twenty locomotives and plenty of rolling stock. The club is active with fifteen man crews working on Saturday nights. The Sunday afternoon time table operation enables the members to pursue their hobby and enjoy working with other cadets. The Model Airplane Club is designed to give cadets the opportunity to continue modeling while at West Point. Besides offering a well equipped workshop, it fea- tures periodic trips to near-by flying loca- tions. Here members are able to put into action the products of many hours of work. Inspired by the active participation and leadership of John Hall, the president, the club has had a good year. MODEL AIRPLANE CLUB 1 GOLF CLUB For the weekend athletes we have golf, handball and skiing. The Golf Club pro vides Its members with an escape from the academic grind for a few hours and an opportunity to en|oy a relaxing game of golf. Expert coaching is available for the inexperienced golfer and both spring and fall ttjurnaments are sponsored for the more experienced players. An intra-corps tournament opened the Handball Club ' s 1953-54 season. After this game matches with various clubs and YMCA ' s, including the National AAU champions. To complete a successful sched- ule Army again sponsored the West Point Invitational Handball Tournament, meet- ing the outstanding schools of the East.

A vigorous sport, requiring good team play, water polo has given many enjoyable hours spent with friends. During the spring the twenty top sailors from the Army Sailing Team compete against the outstanding teams in the East. The highlight of the season is t he inter- service regatta with the Navy, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, and Army com- peting at West Point. The winner is awarded a beautiful trophy to keep for one year. At Camp Buckner the Sailing Club keeps boats for escorting and voluntary in- struction of the Third Class.

This is nothing unusual for Armv soccer, winning being the habit ot the Slew-Footers. Seven Firsties were on the starting team, adding no small amount of punch. The highlights of the 1953 season were the games with Yale, Penn State, West Chester, Temple, Penn, and naturally Navy. These were the big ones for Army, and the Rabble made themselves felt. Army was tied by Yale in a tough game at New Haven, the only tie of the season. Coach Palonc and Captain Frahc Fn-st R,w. Li I Drugge, Devil sev. Black, Ad.i Wix, Kavanaut Zartman, Eckhardt.

A victory over Navv is always cherished, but this one marked the fourth straight, a record of which to be proud. A great amount t)f credit belongs to Coach Joseph M. Palone. Under his expert guidance, the team was steered to victory. It was a winnin? season in more wa s than one. 136 With the start of the 1953 toothall season, Colonel Blaik had to forget the two-platoon football that he had helped to develop a few years back; and change over to the new one-platoon style. This change was very successfully made thanks to excellent coaching, determined playing, and lots of good a c ' moral support supplied by 2400 extremely enthusiastic kaydets. By defeating Ouke in the inter- collegiate Game of the Year, the Rabble was placed among the top teams in the nation, and the following victories over Penn and Navy assured us a permanent rank of that status . . . m LcrON Lunn and Coath Earl H - IFUHHANUNIV StPT?f I NORTHUtSTERN U OCT I DARTMOUTH OCT 10 t ' DUKt UNIV 01 COLUMRia UNiV 01 TULANE UNIV 01 1 no CAROL ' MA ST ' J ' VY NOV 7 NOV 14 NOV?S ' ' A ' - TT .. v I ,Jpi ' .m ,S?s ' IP 352 Yards rushing 1S3 115 Yards passing 3S 15 Passes attempted 15 9 Passes completed 3 1 Passes intercepted hv 4 2 Number of punts 4 39 Punting average, v.irds 36 4 Fumbles lost 5 81 Yards penalized 35 93+ Uehel running the famous touchdown pi The 1953 Armv foothall team made its debut hefure a small but excited crowd in Michie Stadium against a Rebel team from Stuith Carolina.

BASKETBALL J hound taken hv Ar With a new coach this year. Army basketball took a definite up- swing. The newcomer, Mr. Robert Vanatta, came to us as one of the Country ' s most noted young mentors. The Army five lost the opener to Columbia as the Lions capitalized on the Rabble ' s errors. The boys bounced back to two quick victories, though, before going home for Christmas Leave. In the first game of the New Year, a surprisingly strong Williams team nipped the bouncers by 7 close points. The team came back fast to crush Swarthmore. Bill Hannon, the team captain, scored thirty-one ptiints as high man in this rout. The team then went on the road for games with Dartmouth and Amherst. Big Buck Weaver came to life and displayed some fine shooting and re- bounding in these two. Next to feel the Army Axe were the Quakers as Hannon and Mark Binstcin sliarcJ top honors with twenty-five points apiece. The Jaspers from Manhattan then stepped in to cut Arniv ' s winiim!; streak. A scrappy LI. of Mexico team traveled to West Point from South of the Border. As shown by the score, though, thev weren ' t quite scrappy enough.

N.Y.U. nudged out the Army five in a very tight game, but the Rabble once again came back with determination and completed the season undefeated by knocking off Pitt, Rutgers and Navy. Navy was the favored team by everyone except the 2400 Kaydets. With the Field House completely packed, Mark Binstein once again showed his stuff, scoring thirty-five points against the sinking swabbies.

They left the water with an excellent record, losing only to such strong teams as Yale, Harvard and Dartmouth. The team was led all the way by their captain, Pete Witteried who broke two Academy records this year. In the 200 yd Backstroke, his record time was 2:12.1; and in the 150 yd individual medley he cut the standing record down to 1:34.0. The swimmers picked up four straight victories before they were edged out in a close one by Dartmouth 41-43. The following meet was with Yale, and the Eli allowed us onlv one first place which was to Pete Witteried in the backstroke.

Around the live returning letter-men, Coaeh Jack Riley, a one time member of the U. S. Olympic hockev team, molded one of the scrap- piest hockev teams in the Nation. The team did not start practicing until the 1st of December, and soon after that date they had the ir first game. Thev dropped this first one to a fast-skating Clarkson team. Undaunted, the pucksters fought back to defeat such teams as the Univ. of New Hampshire, Williams, and Hamilton. The team improved week by week losing only to such notables as Middlebury, St. Lawrence, and R.P.L These defeats only set more deeply into the team the fighting spirit to win, as was shown in the fact that they only lost one out of the last four games. The loss was to Dart- mouth. The wins were over Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and the traditional rivals from Canada, the Royal Military College.

Pete Leone was the outstanding plaver of the day, while Max Murrell on defense bottled up most of the Dartmouth scoring attempts. The team then traveled to Baltimore to meet the Mount Washington Lacrosse Club, which is composed of former All-Amcricans. This team had a perfect record dating back to 1951, and Army thoroughly messed it up by racking up its third victory of the year.

Yale, an undefeated team, proved to be only a small obstacle as Skip Combs and Pete Leone teamed up to give the Yale goalie a very bad inferiority complex. Johns Hopkins, sporting a string of victories over Army since 1946, was the next victim to feel Armv ' s wrath in a battle which was decided bv . . . ... a goal in the hna! minute ot play. The entire team wt)rkcd like a precision machine in this game to put i)n one of the most outstanding performances ever witnessed on Clinton Field. The Syracuse game, which turned out to he a breather in the schedule, was followed hy a tough one with the University of Maryland. The determined Kaydets pulled this one out of the fire in the last period. After this strong start in which Army had defeated some of the toughest teams in the nation, they lost the last two games of Col- legiate competition to Princeton and Navy. It was a determined Princeton Tiger that visited West Point that day and cut Army ' s winning streak in a game that was close all the way. The big game of the season came as the stickmen made the trip to Crabtown to face a very stubborn Navy team. It was anybody ' s game up to the final minutes of play, when Navy scored the two decisive goals. The bitter pill to swallow was that a victory over either of these last two teams would have meant the Intercollegiate Championship for Army.

Opening with a win over Kings Point, the team rallied with two out in the last innmg to tie CCNY. Playing their best ball of the season, the Big Rabble led by Lecates overcame Ithaca, allowing them but three hits, Swarthmore, taking advantage of Army ' s off day, handed the team its first defeat oi the season. Manhattan was next to feel Army ' s big bat as the Rabble ct)llected eleven hits in one of the better games of the season. Then Army traveled to Crabtown to provide the hrst ma|or sport victorv over Navy this year. Lecates went all the way, allowing only eight hits, while Manus picked up two hits.

Rutgers ' hustling ball club tipped the Rabble off balance, and it took them six games to snap out of it. Army finally found themselves against Harvard and won a tight pitchers duel in which the fine pitching of Frank Lecates limited the Big Red to only four hits.

L L J J,.U - The Black, Grey, and Gold Runners started their season with an impressive win over the cindermen ot Boston University. Allowing the Bean-Eaters only one first place in the entire meet, the depth and spirit of Army was obvious even to the most partisan fan. It was a well-balanced team that entered the Penn Relays the following week. The cinderscrapers arrived in Philadelphia with high hopes, how- ever, these hopes were short lived, as Army made no significant showing. This was only an individual meet and no team scores were recorded. Dave Patton and his crazv Go man, go Next on the list was a tough Manhattan club, which annually is the best in the East. Thev prc)ved it that day by downing the troops in a close meet. The superior strength of the New Yorkers in the track events was what carried them. After this setback. Army ' s cindermen quickly recovered and won the remainder of the dual meets. Outpointed only by Yale, Armv left its name well burned on the track in the Heptagonals. Lew Olive ran an excellent mile and the 440 ard relay team tied the meet record of :41.8 set by Princeton in 1938. Naturally the big win of the season was over the Navy, which probably would have had a better day if they would have used rowboats. Bill Purdue ran away with the high hurdle event in a smashing 14.8.

As we look back, we remember many things that tightened the bonds of friendship in A-1. We remem- ber the thrill of our football heroes in Sis, big Moose, and Rox. We remember Jack and how proud he was to be our compan - commander. And how Big Bill captained the basketball team. We won ' t forget Chuck ' s fnendlv manner or the many laughs Lennie brought us. We remember Tricky and Jim and how the ' championed basket- ball ' s many hard won victories, as well as Tom ' s versatility and P.R. ' s hard work. Budget problems were solved expertly by Bob; we had Frank and Steve ably managing the femmes ' department. Big Lowell almost left us, while Buzy simply stayed cool. Bob dispensed tickets and played bridge as Jim collected and then re-issued cleaning rods. " Babe " studied foreign weapons while Maro practiced lifting them. Jess and Bill matched shutter speeds and George kept " A " squad in shape. Craig was proof that things are big in Texas and Dave had his song. We are leaving, but with us goes the friendship and the personal loyalty that four years have built. A-1 will always bring to mind the people who made it liveable and enjoyable. l.UtCLAi,i -F,urRm bhunER illi.mv| KriuscIE Jenkins PR LirtlchdJ DE GiruooJ Rk Holtam DN )oncs MC Su«ml Rou HartFA. huka TR Lo?an IR Lull CM Tl „J Rnti Moore |C W lIsIi U W Sismmi Lt TorLson LE Foairl R,u i pcncc CH Rass G R .d LFB Grant VF, Egclston RB Hinnon C Bradci [F i.t(.phcnson IR i ' vV v ?

In June ' 50 we had seen parts of the country individually; in June ' 54 we had seen parts of the country together, in one capacity or another — those trips will be long remembered, even the short ones to the showers!

Somewhere along the line tour years had slipped by, and we were pounding on our packing boxes to our hearts ' content, touring the countryside in shin -, new cars, and counting the hours. Our paths may never cross again, but " King Company " will always have a place in our memories. Capt. HO Brcnnan, Celt. QC Snyder K-1, 1st CLASS— f;,r R,,u Gritton EW. Seca,,, R„u: D |T. Foiirrh Row.

But mostly we will remember the men of our class and the things we did together: the games, the hops, the p-radcs, the skirmishes with Snooper, the tenth machines, the drags, and the everlasting grind. Wc did not do every thing right, but we did everything in a big way. There was always plent ' (.if spirit in our little corner of South Area. That is our past.

Acknowledgements When it comes time to put down exactly who made this book possible, we find a great many people who are directly or mdirectlv responsible for what there is between these covers. The men of the Corps, everv class from ' 51 to ' 57, have a stake in what has been written here, as do all the people of this post and all the other in- stallations visited by us on our many trips. There are also some special people who worked directly with us, and without them, we would have been com- pletely lost. The Signal Corps personnel, for mstance, and the Office of Public Information, and Ma|or George S. Pappas, our fine Officer-m-Chargc, are high on the list. BJH, our publisher, has given us the guidance of George Heffernan, the art work of Bob Lovell, the hard work ot Bill Sloane, and morale building of Diane Harris. Without the h)ng vears of experience of these people in Buffalo to guide the staff, the book would never have fallen to- gether as well as it did. Mr. Krasner, long a friend oi the Corps, made sure that we had our advertisers. White Studios, with Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Weilert and their pictures t)f our class, kept a photographic record for us. To all the people listed above and our friends everywhere who have a part of their lives on the pages or in the work of this book, we sav — and the only w av it can be said — Thank vou, sincerely.

Tliis new aluminum extrusion alloy, the strongest yet developed, offers new opportunities for the designer of higlily stressed structures. Harvey ' s metallurgical laboratories have developed an alloy for aircraft structural applications that combines optimum mechanical properties with maximum resistance to stress and stress corrosion. This superior alloy, designated HZM-100, has assured mechanical properties higher than any other aluminum extrusion alloy yet produced for the airframe industry. As design engineers begin to think in terms of speed double the speed of sound, weight and stress factors take on tremendous im- portance. HZM-100 now makes it possible for aircraft engineers to plan on extruded aluminum components with minimum cross sectional di- mensions, maximum stress corrosion resistance and ultimate mechanical properties of 100,000 pounds per square inch.

THE GREAT ATLANTIC PACIFIC TEA COMPANY NORTH AMERICAN HAS BUILT MORE AIRPLANES THAN ANY OTHER COMPANY IN THE WORLD Firstof the true trisonic fighters, the new F-lOO Super Sabre exceeds Mach 1 in normal, level flight . . . flying faster than the speed of sound. MACH (pronounced " mock " ) is a term you ' ll be seeing more and more since it is the only really accurate way of evaluating jet plane speeds. The need for this special standard of measurement is due to the fact that the speed of sound varies with changes in temperature and altitude. At sea level, for instance, sound travels at speeds ranging from 735 M PH at an air temperature of 60° to 800 IVI PH at 100°. However, using the Mach numbers, a jet traveling at Mach 1 is flying at the speed of sound, no matter at what altitude or temperature. Far advanced beyond any fighter now in production, the F-lOO Super Sabre was designed and built by North American to meet our nation ' s need. Engineers of vision . . . men who appreciate a challenge, are wanted at North American. If you are an engineer looking to the future, write North American, Los Angeles 45, California.

That ' s a fact. Twenty years old is a pretty respect- able age in the business of precision electronics. Hallicrafters, born in the depression of the early thirties, and blooded in the last war. is now in its twentieth year. And in that twentieth year is tak- ing its rightful place in the electronics industry. The first Hallicrafters receivers were built for amateur operators. The hams that have been called the most critical experts in the world. One thing about those people — they were outspoken. If they liked something, or didn ' t, they said so on the air and off. They liked Hallicrafters equipment. When the war came along there was a tremen- dous need for precise communications equipment that was rugged, that could take it on the battle- field. It was needed in quantity. Hallicrafters filled a large part of that vital need. And again, the peo- ple that used the equipment liked it. Today Hallicrafters is applying the techniques learned over the years to the production of radio, television, and, of course, communications equip- ment. Other products have found their way into the Hallicrafters line. High Fidelity equipment for the home. Portable units for industry, that ' s the Littlefone. And other things we can ' t talk about. The people that use Hallicrafters equipment today like it, just as that first ham customer of Hallicraft- ers 20 years ago liked what he bought. That ' s all we at Hallicrafters plan for the next twenty years — a policy and products that people will continue to like— and continue to find depend- able. We feel that we can ' t ask for more— or deliver less— than just that. Hallicrafters products today . . . Hallicrafters television today features a number of unique design features, such as the functional " Easy-Angle " tuning panel, one-knob tuning for both UHF and VHP, plus a chassis aimed at repro- ducing all the grey tones blended into the deepest blacks and whitest highlights possible. We call it a " New Dimension in TV Pi This transmitter, the Hallicrafters HT-20, is built to avoid television interference, is an ama- teur ' s dream. Its output is 100 watts on either voice or code. It is especially designed with all spurious outputs above 40 Mc, at least 90db below full rated output. All stages are metered through a single meter with eight positions. Frequency range is 1.7 Mc to 31 Mc continuous. The Hallicrafters " World-Wide " is the finest portable radio obtainable. It covers the world with eight full bands including regular AM. It plays anywhere, even on trains, planes and ships. It covers the marine beacon band that no other port- able receives.

KNOXVILLE,TENN.,U.S.A. f Flying Lab makes 500 Landing Approaches in " Pea Soup " THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY: ■ IF you ' ve been a passenger in a plane " stacked " above a fogged-in airport — or if you ' ve been the pilot at the controls— you were certainly interested in head- lines like the above appearing in news- papers a few months ago. ■ Behind those headlines is the dramatic story of men flying when " even the birds are walking, " making landing approaches over and over again, to make your future landings safer in bad weather. ■ Working with the Air Navigation Development Board and the U. S. Weather Bureau, Sperry flight research personnel have completed 500 bad weather landing approaches in a flving laboratory equipped with specialized instruments. In flight, both manual and automatic recordings are made of con- ditions encountered during the final 500 feet of descent. ■ On the ground, trained observers report what they see. and monitor auto- matic instruments which measure ceiling and visibility conditions existing in the runway approach zone. Synchronized and analyzed, these records reveal the accuracy of the instruments and establish a wealth of information so pilots will know what weather to expect along the line of descent. ■ Because of its many years of experi- ence in low ceiling approaches, Sperry was selected by the government to make the weather measurement study. This project is typical of the exacting flight research which is continuous at Sperry— flight research not only to perfect Sperry instruments and controls, but to advance the operational cfticicncv of both com- mercial and militarv aircraft.

Zippo has stood behind this uniisual guarantee for many millions of lighters for 20 years. Just one of the " strength points " that make it possible— exclusively Zippo ' s — is the PATENTED harri steel collar or bushing in the flint tube. The illustrations show how it works, how it holds any length of flint in perfect alignment . . . ends forever jamming by " flopover flin —a condition common to all well-used lighters without a bushing. And it ' s only one example of the quality that makes your Zippo a true lifetime companion.

ZIPPO ' S PATENTtO CONSTRUCTION PREVENTS THIS No " flopover fUnts " because the fUnt fits into tills hard steel collar the top of flint tube In most well-used lighters the flint wears against the metal tube.

PLANKINTGN COMPANY • 11 WEST 42nd STREET • NEW YORK 36, N. Y. THE AMERICAN ROAD ...Mi MsA: The Revolution that started in a shed at night Steam was reallv his first love. That was hdw he happened to set fire to the school- yard fence. For Henry Ford was passionately ciiri- ons. Exactly how did steam make wlird- go around? In a boyhood experiment lu ' made a steam boiler from an old ten- gallon lard can, and fired up under it. Nn one was in school to hear the explosion — and the fence was soon repaired. His ne t experiment was in the village saw- mill: how did the valve work? He caught hi- arm in a cvlinder, and was two hours getting loose, but before he left he knew how the valve worked. First he tried to make a farm locnmii- ti e, and then a steam road carriage. Then one day in 1891 he saw a little gasoline engine pumping soda water into pop- hottles. That n ' ight he told Mrs. Ford: " (llara, I want to build a gas engine that will do the work of a horse. " Two years later he was still at work, in a little lled behind his Baylev Aveiuie house. A friendly neighbor moved out his coalpile to give Henry more room. Clara watched, and darned socks. lie got four bicycle wheels. He made l Mi c-vlinders from a steam engine ' s ex- liau-t pipe. He put on a tiller, so it teered like a boat. He put a bicycle- saddle on top of the three-gallon fuel tank (the buggy seat came later when he could afford it). On a wet dark May morning in 1S ' )C). at 2 a.m., he was ready. Then he couldn ' t get the car out of the shed. He seized an axe and knocked out enough brick- In make the first garage-door. He trundled the car into the alli ' n u r Clara watched under an umlnt ' lla. The little car ran— clear around the block. One of the two cylinders went dead- hut still the car ran. That first Ford is still running, and so are many ' l its 36.000,000 descendants. The revolution of those wheels starlcil one of the great revolutions in hisldiv. A dream had come true — transportalinu for everyone. The first Ford helped build the .American Road. The American Road is more than a stone river of rushing traffic. It symbol- izes the power of our way of life, endlessly MTvirig all mankind.

Working with Fili- pino engineers and craftsmen, Caltex enjoys the co-operation and good will so vital to ' such an immense project Caltex serves the people of 67 lands In 67 lands, across half the world, through such develop- ments as these, Caltex is able to supply better fuels and lubricants for industry, for agriculture, and for motoring millions. These require a continual investment of funds and skills, backed by a faith in a better future for free nations. 500 shell. Inset, Transistor actual size. lransistor _ mighty mite of electronics Increasingly you hear of a new elec- tronic device — the transistor. Be- cause of growing interest, RCA— a pioneer in transistor development for practical use in electronics — an- swers some basic questions: Q: What is a travMstor? A: The transistor consists of a particle of the metal germanium imbedded in a i Iustic shell about the size of a kernel ot corn. It controls electrons in solids in much the same way that the electron tube handles electrons in a vacuum. But transistors are not interchangeable with tubes in the sense that a tube can be removed from a radio or television set and a transistor substituted. New circuits as well as new components are needed. Q: What is germanium? A: Genuanium is a metal midu ' ay be- twxen gold and platinum in cost, but a penny or two will buy the amount needed for one transistor. Germanium is one of the basic elements found in coal and certain ores. When painstak- ingly prepared, it has unusual electrical characteristics which enable a trans- istor to detect, amplify and oscillate as does an electron tube. Q: What are the advantages of tran- sistors in electronic instruments? A: They have no heated filament, re- quire no warm-up, and use little power. They are rugged, shock-resistant and unaffected by dampness. They have long life. These qualities offer great opportunities for the miniaturization, simplification, and refinement of many types of electronic equipment. Q: What is the present status of tran- sistors? A: There are a number of types, most still in development. RCA has demon- strated to 200 electronics firms — plus Armed Forces representatives — how transistors could be used in many dif- ferent applications. Q: IIow widely will the transistor be used in the future? A: To indicate the range of future ap- plications, RGA scientists have demon- strated experimental transistorized am- plifiers, phonographs, radio receivers (AM, FM, and automobile), tiny trans- mitters, electronic computers and a number of television circuits. Because of its physical characteristics, the tnuis- istors qualify for use in Ughtweight, portable instruments. RCA scientists, research men and engi- neers, aided h j increased lahoratonj facilities, have intensified their work in the field of transistors. The multiplicittj of new applications in both military and commercial fields is being studied. Already the transistor gives evidence that it will greatly extend the ba.sc of the electronics art into many new fields of science, commerce and indu.tfry. Such pioneering assures finer perform- ance from any product or .service trade- marked RCA and RCA Victor.

Pictured ahiivc is the most elucjiient niotiir car ever to travel the world ' s highways. Kirst of all, it speaks of its owner —the minute its beautiful hood comes into view. " Here is a man, " it says— almost as plainly as the words are written here— " who has earned the right to sit at this wheel— by his industry and deportment and enterprise. Be he merchant or lawyer or business- man — or doctor or farmer or financier —the odds are great that he ' s a credi t to his calling and to his fellow men. And then, as it comes closer, it speaks its .v x ' c rf message for 1954 — the story of its own advancement. Its beautiful silhouette— graceful, free-flowing and dynamic — an- nounces a whole new era in auto- motive design . . . " expect me to be copied for years tf come! " And Its smooth, silent, easy move- ment — a true symphony m motion as it glides past and on and away — says with clarity and eloquence that the world ' s finest standards for per- formance have been raised again. And remember— the wonderful " voice " of a 1954 Cadillac, with its significant message, comes as a Ihjiius to the man at the wheel. It comes hi addition to all the priceless fundamentals which make a Cadillac a Cadillac: unrivalled endurance and dependability— in- comparable comfort and handling ease — and unbelievable economy of upkeep and operation.

Frankly, what A ouId these people really say about the new Chevrolet? frank to admit it. Most pn,pl on ' t talk about cats the -av til cturcr woiiKi like them to. So, we u-oiil(ln ' t actually expect those folks around the firehouse to coninient about the new Chevrolet ' s " smoother lines and smarter styling. " But you might well hear something like " Best-looking Chev- rolet they ever turned out. " Xo one up there is likely to go in for technical engineering talk about " higher compression ratios resulting in increased horsepower and finer performance with outstanding fuel economy. " But that new Chevrolet owner would probably point out the same things to his friends in his own words. Something like this, maybe: " This new Chevrolet ' s got a lot more stuff in it. And it ' s the easiest car on gas I ever owned. " And because Americans like and know their cars, the conversation could turn up tacts like these: Chevrolet has the ojily Fisher Body in its field — and everybo ly knows Fisher is the nimiber one automobile body. These smooth and easy Chevrolet brakes are really something special— biggest in the low-price field. This year ' s Chev- rolet offers a complete choice of pouer featuies and controls as extra-cost options. And when the talk turned to price, it would be common kno ledge that Chev- rolet is the Irjivcst-priccd line of cars.
