Second To be tolerant and sensitive citizens -- so that our society may not suffer the moral sickness that is bigotry -- and may clearly perceive the values and the virtues cherished in other societies. Third — To be skilled and accomplished citizens — able to grasp the great levers, turn the giant wheels, of this new atomic age, as nature finally surrenders to men so many of its colossEil secrets. Fourth — To be wise and reflective citizens, thankful for the new leisure, promising a new freedom from much toil -- not merely to relax in pleasure but to cultivate the mind and to nourish the spirit. To be wholly educated, in the sense that man is a spiritual and intel- lectual and physical being. America needs citizens strong in their ideals and spiritual convictions, healthy in their bodies, and tirelessly inquiring in mind. And finally -- To be bold and courageous citizens, knowing that strength and sacrifice are the indispensable saving weapons of freedom - and knowing that the frontier in America, that rules so much of our history, has become, in this age, the frontier that i£ America — leader of free nations, hope of free men. DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER The Honorable Charles E. Wilson Secretary of Defense The Honorable Wilber M. Brucker Secretary of the Army The Honorable Donald A. Quarles Secretary of the Air Force tv- !L General Maxwell D. Taylor Chief of Staff of the Army General Nathan F. Twining Chief of Staff of the Air Force (B eneral Garrison H. Davidson became Superintendent of the United States Military Academy, succeeding General Blackshear M. Bryan in July of 1956. To this assignment, he brought a wealth of experience, an understanding of the Corps, and a large family. These qualities along with his personable manner, very quickly made General Davidson popular with the Corps of Cadets. Part of this popularity stems from his interest in Corps spirit and his status as former football coach following his grad- uation from West Point in 1927. Following his many engineer assignments throughout the country, he became Chief Engineer to General Patton during the invasion of North Africa and Sicily during the Second World War. It was in Sicily that General Patton pinned the star of a Brigadier General on his thirty-nine year old Engineer. When the Korean conflict broke out in June of 1950 General Davidson transferred to the Eighth Army in Korea where he distinguished himself in the defense of the Pusan Perimeter. General Davidson ' s decorations include seven World War II and six Korean battle stars. Distinguished Service Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, Silver Star, Legion of Merit, and Bronze Star to name just a few. Besides his record as a soldier. General Davidson is ably assisted by his charming wife and his six children, in the role of Superintendent USMA. f he man who occupies the office on the second floor of the Head- quarters building holds a position quite unlike any to be found in the normal college administration. He is the Commandant of Cadets, ap- pointed by the President as head of the Tactical Department and charged with the supervision of the administration and discipline of the Corps. Military education, leadership, character, physical fitness, these are the far flung bounds of his responsibilities. The scope of the office alone tends to make the occupant an enigma in the eyes of Cadets. When General John L. Throckmorton became the forty-eighth Comman- dant of Cadets, we knew of him as the Superintendent ' s Chief of Staff, a former Commanding Officer of the First Regiment, and at one time an instructor in the Chemistry Department. We heard of the service he had rendered as a Regimental Commander in Korea, service which brought him the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star, and an Oak Leaf Cluster to the Legion of Merit awarded him in World War IL Soon we found that our new Commandant was a man of spirit, a consistent supporter of all athletic teams and extra curricular activities. We would chance upon him at football practice, at intramural boxing, or find him judging debates in the West Academic Building. January brought him the title, " Protector of First Class Privileges, " a title never to be admitted for the very idea seems to conflict with the inscrutable title. Commandant. V (g eneral Stamps ' background is that of soldier-scholar. Prior to grad- uating from the Military Academy in 1917, he received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Texas. Having seen action in France and Germany during World War I, he served with the Corps of Engineers. As former head of the Department of Military Engineering, General Stamps was responsible for the establishment of the course in the History of Military Art. A controversial subject at the time of its inception, the Art course was built from a mere idea to the prominence which it now occupies, mainly through the efforts of General Stamps and his associates who authored and comp iled a plenitude of texts and maps to give the military man a background in his chosen profession. Upon assuming the office of Dean of the United States Military Academy, General Stamps brought the ideals of high academic standards and per- sistence in his policy to his new position. The First Class looked back wistfully recalling the comparative ease of Cow Academics, but the Dean ' s will persevered. Though the Dean ' s List on occasion dwindled, and the Deficiency List was at times alarmingly large, the man referred to in the third person simply as " The Dean " maintained his unflinching ideals of the highest possible academic standards for the Corps of Cadets. ■y £ W - ' - J- ■f t ' J J c LASS HISTORY A story that began in 1933 . . . now brought to a close . . .

It seems that many years have passed since we first posted out to the Sallyport to look at section assignments. The alphabet ruled and Jack Adams found himself driving the first section, but within a month, someone decided that the time had come to average all the daily grades and resection us on the basis of academic merit. So it has been ever since with Jack Vickers, a suprisingly permanent fix- ture in that coveted first seat of the first section. The rest of us found that the section system placed us in small groups of nearly equal ability. The hives were able to rush through the normal work in order to start complaining about the advanced work and special courses offered by most departments. Goats certainly had to work too, but they didn ' t have to worry about being left too far behind, not being able to ask a question that everyone else could answer. We advanced to the limits of ability and desire. We found that fre- quent resectioning provided for movement between sections so that the last section man was not doomed to slow progress, nor was any- one ' s position guaranteed by a fast start. Even our instructors were resectioned so we had the benefit of many and varied approaches to the same subject. The experience was trying at times. There ■was something unbearable in being the first man in the first section not to be excused from WGR ' s. The result however, has been, highly favorable. We have all progressed further because of the almost in- dividual attention provided by the section system. We salute it as the basis of the Academy ' s highly successful, but unique system of education. 80 S ;t MATHEMATICS Bill Murphy and Speed Negaard try to grovel a few- tenths from the yellow chalk department. A Jim Henthorne proves to Captain Genebach that 2 and 2 are 5. KeufiFel and Esser please note. Captain MacWherter quizes on differentials and partial derivatives. From Algebra to Differential Equations, that is the story of our two years of Math. But, to those of us who spent most of our time in the " trip section, " it was not that easy. Many were the nights when we would fall asleep in the hallway over our Math notebooks. Some of us never did attend a term-end lecture, but many attended the term-end exams. There the battle was close, and, when the smoke had cleared, those of us who remained would pay silent tribute to the many who had fallen in the struggle. Algebra gave way to Spherical Trig and then to Analytic Geometry. Not many of us remember what a hyperboloid of da ' O sheets, or even one sheet for that matter, looked like. However, we will remember Analyt because it was there that poopschool spec began to run out. Things began to even out. Calculus pro- vided a challenge to us. DX and integral signs became part of our dreams. Yearling Math brought more Calculus, but somehow our attitude toward it had changed. It was yearling year that saw the parting of the ways. The smarter among us batted our heads against STM 15 while the rest struggled through triple integration. Differential Equations was probably the toughest and most interesting course we ' ve had here. Then. we all quit studying when we started our final course. Sta- tistics. By the way, how many pennies were in that jar? Right: Captain MacWherter poi out the characteristics of the hyf boloid to Charlie Williams Clark and Leo Keefe. r ,v MILITARY TOPOGRAPHY AND GRAPHICS To attempt an orthographic projection of the MT G ( or, as it is more popularly known, " squint and print " ) course, would probably be an undeserved justice to the Department. Located at the top of Washington Hall and reached only by too many stairs, the MT G department holds the Acad- emy record for putting people to sleep. Did they work in close liaison with the mess hall? It wasn ' t until yearling jear that those of us in the back room discovered what they meant by 2H and 4H. And even then, it was easier to put lead in our Scripto ' s, than to waste time sharpening those things. Nothing was more practical than those radiator valves we had to draw, unless of course, it was that real, honest-to-goodness door-stop we designed. Our store of knowledge was increased, though, the day we were told that you couldn ' t put a right-handed screw into a hole with left-hand threads. Yearling year we learned that a transit was something with which you could get a pretty good view of " Dick ' s Folly. " Topography did give us a chance to get outdoors for " practical work " with surveying instru- ments. Some of us turned in some pretty good free hand sketches of Trophy Point, not to mention Lusk reservoir, if you were lucky enough to get a seat on the roof of the Observatory. But, no matter how we try, we ' ll never forget MT G. The Topo Course specialized in those Inchon and Vi- cinity 1:25,000 maps, but why were they printed in Korean? Lt. Col.

FOREIGN LANGUAG In Russian Class the Battle of Stalingrad is discussed by Jim Chernault ( left ) and Don Buckner (right) as Sam Focer and Don Whalen (seated) listen. Whether it was Portuguese, Spanish, German, French, or Russian, the Foreign Languages left their imprint on us. As part of our liberal education they provided us with an appreciation for Continental customs. Departmental policy stressed fluency in reading, writing, speaking, and comprehending our chosen language, and the sudden death WGR ' s ably assured this. Comprehensive they were: where else could you give a three minute extem- poraneous speech, write a hundred word essay, decline a dozen words, and have an interview with your instructor all in your specific foreign language and all within seventy minutes time? But there was retribution: when we went abroad in ' 54, ' 55, or ' 56 we spoke so well across the continent that only a firm denial in English could rescue us from many an em- barrassing situation. Perfection in our language was the aim of our instructors and Major de la Feunte, Herr Tiller, and Gospoden Malt- zoff spent two years inflicting knowledge upon us to this end. The course amply provided us with foreign movies, lectures, and newspapers. Only when Pravda surpassed the New York Times in circulation among the " Russkie " stu- dents did the department reconsider its policy! CEASE tOORVe; i Lt. Col.

IP ' English was a succession of themes, discussions, themes, evenings at the library, research paper, and more discussions. Nevertheless we managed to master the King ' s English, even if we did gravitate to the ninth section in doing so. Plebe year was a battle with exposition, composition, and the dictionary. Yearling year found us perusing the chissics: Homer, Euripedes, and Dante. Major Burton attempted to initiate us into the beauties of Chaucer, while Colonel Al- spach inflicted a vicarious knowledge of Shakespeare on the unsuspecting troops. The Department did its best to give each of us a liberal arts education with all of the trimmings. Romanticism with Wadsworth, Byron, Shelley, and Keats; Realism with Gorki; and the symbolism of Herman Mel- ville all were taken in our stride, only to have us fall head- long before the Departmental " evolutionary meliorism " of Hardy, and " pejorism " of A. E. Housman. First class year we were unduly influenced by the reading of " 1984 " and so we graduated adept at " doublethink, " appreciative of Big Brother, and professed in the three principles of Ingsoc. ■ Litcr.uurt method for Driving his point home, Captain Lamb discussed Antony and Cleopatra with Cadets White, Wheeler, Smith, Bowman, Cooper, Armstrong, and Champion (left to right). 89 PHYSICAL EDUCATION Functioning upside- down may hax purpose of Apparatus Class. been the The Social Aspect of Plebe Gym. " The next exercise is . . . " How we grew to hate those words. The yellow-shirted first classmen seemed to have only one aim in life: to kill us in the most painful way possible. The PE Department took what to most of us had been recrea- tion and converted it into hazing formations. Swimming was made more " interesting " by making us swim in khakis. Among the most dreaded words during Plebe Year were. " All right, gentlemen, into the ' tank. ' " Boxing and Wres- tling tested our ability to find an opponent whom we knew we could beat. Heaven help the man who couldn ' t find such an opponent. Apparatus was a true test of our ability to function upside down. The rings and the parallel bars sent more than their share of our classmates to the hospital. A sure sign that June week was just around the corner came when we went outside for Golf and Tennis, the " social games. " Yearling year found us fat, and contented, and extremely reluctant to go another round with our tormen- tors. However, things turned out pretty well. Volleyball, basketball, and handball proved to be within our capacity. Not even Badminton proved too much of a challenge. Coaching techniques, cow year, however, was just an ex- tension of Plebe gym. As Firsties, we became more inti- mately connected with the Department and, in doing so, confirmed our opinion of it: 300 became a magic number, PFT a nasty phrase. " Come on, ' 57, one more pushup and you ' ll graduate.

Physics and Chemistry were the bane of many a goat. The periodic chart, inorganic Chemistry, and Major Borum con- fused the masses. Some of us never did understand isomers, isobars, or Captain Grosz ' s first section jokes. We thrived on the " County Fairs " (stayback) in Physics on Saturday mornings, and somehow we survived Lieutenant Loranger ' s eiTorts to get us all hivey in Chemistry. The department worked ingeniously, giving us the maximum amount of in- formation about the two subjects, crowding the equivalent of a two year college course into 80 minutes per day, six days per week. Still we learned. Physics paved the way for Electricity and Solid Mechanics while Chemistry gave an inkling of what would appear again in the Ordnance sub- courses. By June of yearling year we had mastered the elements of air, fire, and fire-water; knew that it is impossible to get any results with a calorimeter; and found that experimenta- tion is always greater than realization.

Yeiirling Year we finally came into contact with those un- usual people usually blamed for concocting the aptitude system. Psychology we were told is a science: so everyone managed to keep a scientific half dollar on hand for flip- ping during the writs. We survived even though Pavlov ' s dog had to be eliminated. Who will ever forget that last minute storm after dinner to find someone who actually knew what the lesson contained? Cow year we returned to the cell blocks in the gym, the department ' s home, but the shoes were on our own feet. Military Instructor Training proved to be perhaps the most immediately useful course we had encountered. Sometimes the section didn ' t arrive at the right location and a few P ' s weren ' t informed that the day ' s instruction would take place at South Dock; but they had their revenge: someone always forgot to wear garters to class ( three demerits ) . Leadership in the Service was a worthy culmination for the efforts of the department. We had been taught the basis for Psychology, Military Instruction and now we were being briefed for the 30 year stretch.

An appropriate sub-title for the Juice course would have been " The Big Fib. " It all staned the first day in class when we were told that these things they called electrons were going in one direction but the current flow was in the other direction. From that day on, Electricity became a matter of day-to-day spec of things we didn ' t understand and half- suspected weren ' t really true. Resistance, impedance, con- ductance, and nonsense made most of our lives miserable. We learned the right-hand rule for one thing, the left-hand rule for something else, and the slide rule for going pro. But when it came to grades we learned that the Department believed in minority rule. Thus it went through circuits, power, and radio, until, near the end of the course, we fi- nally learned the truth. It was all a " Big Fib. " Nuclear Physics showed us that: actually no one knew what was going on. In fact, they weren ' t even sure that there was such a thing as an electron. If there was it was pretty small, 9.1006x10 ' " ' grams (a little spec that came in handy at times). So, after almost a year of dropped tenths, we dis- covered that the reason we studied Juice was not that it was necessarily true, but that it worked. Even now, Elec- tricity is, to most of us, just some mysterious thing that lights our room when we flip on the switch.

That was the effort of Cow year for most of us, but the upper sections produced experts in the History of Russia, the Middle East and Diplomacy. They ' ve never let us forget it. There will never be anything like Captain Osato expounding on Wang Ching Wei and the Empress Dowager Tzu-Hsi unless some informed mem- ber of the class writes a book on the Implication of the Gross National Product and Multiplier Effect on Sustained Instability in Second Century Outer Mongolia— by the way, that sounds like a good monograph topic now that we know how to make a theme grow ten times as big. This depart- ment also gave us the W. F. R.— eighteen units of sheer horror. Firstie year brought Economics, National Security, and International Relations and bonus poop on Personal Finance and Insurance. " Sir, I bought that recommended program but now I ' ll only net fifteen dollars a month as a second lieutentant. " — " Go out and kill yourself— you ' re worth more that way. " We depart convinced that nothing ' s white and nothing ' s black but there ' s sure a lot of gray. Captain Stoner councils Les Bennett on his Monograph, highlights of first class year. In the quiet of his room T. B. McOonald ponders the pros and cons of a case while boning up the poop for a Law Writ. " Caveat Emptor " translated into the lingo of the Law De- partment generally meant " let the Cadet beware. " Back in the dark corners of the West Academic Building, Elemen- tary Law, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, and the Uni- form Code of Military Justice all kept us on the defensive, but in no other department could we laugh ourselves as deficient as we did during one of those inimitable Law Writs. With such defendants as Casanova Smoothline ( Law Writ 8), Simian Anthropoid (Writ 3), and Jayne Gamsfield (Writ 13 ) the department impressed us with the legal ramifications and significance of even the most innocent actions. The proximate cause of our falling asleep in class was not always the material in the textbook, for the department assured that each P. had his copy of " In- teresting and Unusual Cases of the J.A.G. " handy to en- liven any somnolent after dinner class. Did anyone estab- lish that it was in the line of duty when the grating broke on the Wac?

Don ' t throw away your copy of the AISC Manual. Who knows someday you may have to build a Warren or Pratt truss for your wife. (Remember 33-1 3% allowance for wind stresses. ) However, on second thought, throw it away. All you have to remember is: if it ' s a Pratt, you can put yours in it: if you can ' t, it must be a Warren. According to Grinter and Shedd, the elastic limit of a first classman was two week-ends per semester. A specification that the Department rigidly adhered to. And then on the other side of the department: defeat in detail . . . Penetration of op- portunity . . . Attraction of a fortress to a commander. What would our life have been without these magic phrases? No matter what the problem, these cover-alls solved it. After all, what was good enough for Napoleon is good enough for a 2nd Lieutenant. We ' ll not forget Art, if only because one of our misguided professors intimated that Lee married for money. The " friction of writs " upset many a well-planned spec, but without the " Summaries " think of what it might have been. When you ' re down and out, re- member to " make the right strong!

Engine trouble: Jack Crater and Jim Wood receive departmental suggestion in the Automotive Course. " The shaped charge " Alan Bell points out, " has many associated parameters. " Considering this specific configuration was a high point of Major Rafert ' s class. Somebody suggested that this department should be clued in on the firstie deadbeat. Ordnance was the only course where we could have a 2.1 average and be in the second section. We spent four or five months studying automotive engines and, when we were finished, most of us weren ' t sure that it would work. The first part of the Ordnance course was spent analyzing engineering materials. Don ' t ask why. That ' s just the way that it was. Then came the parting of the ways, half of us made the long trek down to the Ordnance building for Automotives while the other half struggled through Armament. Automotives soon de- generated into a desperate struggle to keep what few tenths the department would give us. But, through it all shone those two weeks when we had only one grade because we were too busy tearing down an engine to do anything else. The more sadistic of us took great pleasure in seeing how much we could " fix " the engine for the group who were to follow us. You know, explosives can kill someone if you don ' t watch out. At least, that ' s what they tried to tell us. Writs were on a hit-and-miss proposition: either you got all of it, or you got nothing. Toward the end, we finally convinced the de- partment that the ballistic characteristics of a firstie were not very good. The hazing finally ended with the Ordnance trip to Aberdeen. And we were free.

Military Hygiene was almost forgotten during most of the year, yet it seemed to creep into the schedule at the most unsuspected times. Reputed to be the smallest department at West Point, it nevertheless did a mighty job of lecturing, organizing, and devising ten minute comprehensive WGR ' s. More intimately connected with most Cadets was the U.S. Army Hospital, famed for the panacea APC, square needles and Sick Call. Though the Department of Military Hygiene functioned as an academic department, the hospital, the working end of the business, was there to attempt to cure or to kill your ills. With its extensive staff of M.D. ' s, Den- tists, nurses, specialists, etc., etc., we were assured that if we caught something they would see that we lost it. Their cures weren ' t always the most painless, but they were a unique experience. The Dental Clinic provided excellent care for us in a painless way. - f- Right: The executives of the Military Hygiene course.

Most of it was presented by our friends in the 1st Regimental Combat Team down at the Cavalry Plain. While on the other side of the con- fusing ledger the Tactical Department, our Tacs, inspected, quilled, and kept us in line during our four year stay. The confusion was further compounded by the fact that Drill. Parades, and Reviews were in a sense considered tactics, and in a sense . . . well, we won ' t consider that. Our Tactical Officers, bless them, were our closest contact with the Army and Air Force. Despite our apprehension when S.I. rolled around, and contrary to the belief that we secretly hated our Tacs, we became good friends. With the Combined Arms people leading the way we laughed our way through many Tactics classes with " Your Friendly LNO. " Sgt. ( Chaplain ) Pacetti, and the other actors down on the Cavalry Plain.

A contingent of the Band provides music to marc uf I into the Mess Hall for Dinner. I di U.S. MA. BAND Remember the tirst time we ever heard the band? It was after supper on a Tuesday night during Beast Barracks. The lirsties double-timed us out onto the plain where we all sat in a semi-circle around the band. And, s ' hen the concert was finished, we knew that we had at least one friend at West Point, and that friend was the USMA Band. Those concerts, along with their productions of " Marching through History " and " Musicalbleaux, " made Beast Barracks just a little easier for a lot of us. Four years have passed since those Tuesday concerts, and, in that time, the band became a part of our life. Every morning we awake to the " melodic " strains of the Hellcats. We pass in review to the martial music of the marching band. On Saturday evenings, we waltz or rock ' n ' roll to the music of the dance orchestra. At their frequent concerts we get a chance to show off the remarkable versatility of the band. To those of us who have had an opportunity to work with the band, the tremendous amount of work that they spend rehearsing for a show, amazed us. Many hours of practice go into even the most minor of the band ' s commitments. But, this hard work has given us the finest all-around band in the country and one we will remember for many years. A sight seldom seen by an of us: the Hell Cats playing that first note of Reveille. Lieutenant Colonel Francis E. Resta, Commanding Officer of the United States Military Academy Band. 1st Regimental Combat Team Pole climbing was given as part of the Signal instruction at Buckner. You name it, they have it. Our association with the Combat Arms building has been a very close one. Every winter for four years we have made the long cold trip by truck to the Cavalry plain for Tactics instruction. Plebe year we played with sand tables and took apart various weapons. Little did we know that during yearling Buckner, we would be con- fronted with these same weapons, only much dirtier, and then we had to get them past the sharp eyes of Sergeant Viel. Yearling year we maneuvered platoons and Cow year we had our companies. Firstie year Battalion level Tactics and two hour periods occupied us. Sergeant Pacetti, as a chaplain; Captain Thompson, Your Friendly LNO; and the ever present Captain Price were on the scene to teach us by example. Whether it was as instructor or as aggressors at Buckner, we owe a great deal to the officers and men of the 1st Regimental Combat Team.

J V. :M.I. Again in 1956, as was the case in the preceding year, Army opened its season with one of Colonel Biaik ' s " experiments " . Bob Kyasky, considered one of Army ' s great halfback prospects, was starting at quarterback. V.M.I, provided the first opposition for the test. Army took the opening kick-off, and under Bob ' s guidance it took only a few minutes before the Black Knights were leading 7-0. Before V.M.I, could recover from the fir st swift drive. Army struck again as Gene Mikelonis bucked through the line for six more points. The first period ended with Army leading 13-0. Then V.M.I, took to the air, and with some impressive short passing, quickly scored two touchdowns. However, they missed both conversion attempts, and Army still held a sHni lead of one point. After this it was ail Army, as Dick Murtland at right half scored two more touchdowns and Harry Walters carried for another. All told the Rabble ran up an im- pressive score of 412 yards rushing and passing. And though Gene Mikelonis was injured, and lost for the remainder of the season, ail indications pointed toward a good season with the 32-13 victory.

One touchdown was scored by Dick Murtland, at right half, on an end run; and the other by quarterback Bob Kyasky on a roll out. Penn State then seemed to come to life, as they battled the Rabble on even terms both in line play and offensive tactics. But two great defensive plays by Bob Kyasky, one a goal line pass interception, and the other a fine tackle, after faking out a State blocker deep in Army territory, stopped the " Nit- tany Lions " , and kept the " Rabble " in command. Late in the third period, Penn State intercepted an Army pass, and started goalward. On the first play of the fourth period they completed the drive, and scored their only touchdown. The Black Knights totaled well over three hundred yards while win- ing 14-7. but more important. Army once more proved its effective passing abilitv as nearly one hundred yards were made through the air. Army fails to intercept, as Penn State scores their lone touchdown of the game.

University of c ichigan The first away game of the season was played at Ann Arbor, Michigan. At game time it shaped up to be one of the best battles of the year. However, after losing five fumbles in the first half, two of them inside their twenty. Army trailed 27-0. The second half started in a similar manner as Heren- stein at fullback powered his way through the Army line, on his way to a sixty yard touchdown sprint. But that wasn ' t the end of Army ' s night- mare. The Rabble again fumbled: this time on their seven. Result: another Michigan touchdown. Minutes later. Army tried to punt out of serious trouble, but the ball went straight up and came down on the Rabble ' s fifteen. Michigan ' s quarter- back, Maddock, grabbed it in the confusion, and brought it back to the three. Again the Wolverines capitalized, as they had five times before, on an Army miscue. The score was then 48-0. The Rab- ble managed to organize two scoring drives, one of 89 yards, to prevent a whitewashing. Though both teams were potentially equal, the game was a rather pathetic rout, and a grim spectacle for the Army fans present, including the shocked First Class. The final tally was 48-14.

The First Regiment was present to give the team their support, and to watch the team prove that the previous week ' s loss was in no way an indication of their true ability. The first quarter gave evidence that this game was to be a battle of the defenses, as the tv o lines showed tremendous determination to crush any- thing trying to penetrate them. However, in the second period, Syracuse showed a little more strength, and Jimmy Brown broke loose for a 36 yard run to the Army five. The next play the Orangemen scored. The second half, however, was quite different. Army clearly outplayed Syracuse in all respects. Dave Bourland at quarterback engi- neered a seventy yard drive to the opponent ' s five. but a bad pitchout stopped the Rabble there. This didn ' t, however, stop the determination of the Black Knights and soon they stormed back sixty- one yards for a first down on the Syracuse six. But four plunges at the big Orange line failed, and Syracuse took over inches from the goal line, and the score 7-0 ended the game. Barta (37) picks up another first down for Army.

With the whole Corps in the stands, First Captain Huckabee presented Lou Little with a plaque to commemorate the many years of com- petition between his teams and those of the Mili- tar) ' Academy. Then the Army team totaled 646 yards, and a point for every minute of play in the game. The final score, 60-0, showed the difference between the two teams, as all three of Army ' s combinations showed quick striking power and solid defense. Dave Bourland again showed much finesse at quarterback, and passed for three touch- downs. And while Bob Kyasky wasn ' t at quarter- back, he often appeared, to everyone ' s surprise, at fullback where he turned in an impressive per- formance. Dick Murtland made a fine 65 yard run for a touchdown, and also snatched a Columbia pass on the Army four and ran it back 26 yards through several Lion tacklers. Kyasky was the only one to score twice, as the scoring honors were distributed among eight players. Army completed ten of fourteen pass attempts for 174 yards. ■ : jmtm % 4. r % p (Colgate In the next game Colgate faced the Bhick Knights in Michie Stadium, before a capacity crowd which included their Serene Highnesses Prince Ranier and Princess Grace. Whether it was their High- nesses ' presence or some other factor, these two teams battled their way through one of the most exciting games in football history. A total of 101 points were scored with Army getting the edge: 55 to 46. Dave Bourland started his first game at quarterback, while Bob Kyasky began at fullback. Bob ran wild in the see-saw battle, and covered a total of 209 yards, and Dave passed to Dick Stephenson for three touchdowns. Army scored first, and then the teams took turns scoring throughout the first half. Colgate then stepped out of turn and took the lead 27-20. The Rabble caught fire and proceeded to score three in a row to sew up the victory. However, the passing of Colgate ' s quarterback, Guy Martin, worried Army through- out the game.

The game began as expected as Gil Roesler scored for the Rabble before the game was five minutes old. But the scene soon changed as the Indians went to the air and found it a successful way to gain yardage. At the half Army was only leading by the slim mar- gin of 13-6, and William and Mary was looking better all the time. The second Rabble score had come on a tw-enty-five yard run of Dave Bourland. In the third quarter. Bob Kyasky intercepted a pass, and two plays later, he scooted seven yards for Army ' s third touchdown. Thereafter the Black Knights seemed to settle down; taking advantage of the opportunities afforded them, they scored twice. Quarterback Chuck Darby passed to Milt Ewanus, at end, for the final touchdown. Bob Kyasky was again the leading ground gainer with 1 1 3 yards. The Indians ' ends, Brodie and Perca- tiello, were big factors in helping the William and Mary quarterbacks complete sixteen of twenty- nine passes. The final score: Army 34, William and Mary 6. ' 4. 148 Pittsburgh In a game that promised to be one of the East ' s best contests, the Rabble met the Panthers of Pitts- burgh in Pitt Stadium. With the Second Regiment in full support, an inspired Army team started off strong against the heavier Pitt line. The Army line stopped Pitt cold during the first period in which Army made a sustained drive to the Panther ' s goal line. There Pitt stopped them. But the Rabble were also determined and gave no yardage to the Pan- thers. After Pitt punted, it took only two plays for Army to score, as Kyasky raced around left end. Murtland ' s kick was perfect and Army led 7-0. With two minutes remaining in the first half, Pitt recovered a Rabble fumble on the Army fourteen. Pitt ' s quarterback. Corny Salvaterra, called for a pass, found no one open, decided to run, and went all the way. The conversion attempt was wide, and as the half ended. Army led 7-6. The second half saw a new Pitt team on the field. They struck quickly and decisively, and soon were on the Army four. There they were stopped. A few minutes later, Pitt recovered an Army bobble on the Rab- ble ' s 27, and again Salvaterra engineered a quick score. The final Panther touchdown came late in the last period on a Salvaterra pass, to end the game 20-7 in favor of the Panthers. The Rabble close in on a Panther drive around right end.

Though Navy had proved to be one of the best defensive teams in the nation, and was close to the top in total offense, they were only slight favorites at game time. Army won the toss, and began a game which left no doubt, in the minds of millions of fans watching the game, as to who was master of the field. The Rabble line of Johnson, Reid, Slater, Kernan, Fadel, Goodwin, and Stephenson outcharged, outplayed, and completely dominated the Navy forward wall. Army ' s pass defense was at its best as Navy ' s quarterback. Tommy Forrestal, found it practically impossible to locate a free re- ceiver. So solid was the Rabble defensive that Navy managed to make only one first down in the first half. Bob Kyasky ' s twenty-two yard end sweep on a fake punt was a standout of several slick Army offensive tactics. But the Rabble did not take full advantage of its opportunities and was unable to score in the first half. In the second half. Army was still outcharging and outplaying Navy. With only a few minutes gone in the third period, Dave Bourland intercepted a Navy pass, and tightroped the sideline twenty-five yards to the opponent ' s four. Next play. Bob Kyasky blasted through right tackle for the score, and Dick Murtland ' s conversion made it 7-0. The Rabble continued to dominate the game, but their eight fumbles, five of which Navy recovered, kept stopping their drives. Navy could not penetrate the Army defense, but half way through the final period they snatched a Rabble bobble on the Army twenty-seven. Seven plays later, Dick Dagampat, Navy ' s fullback, went over from the one foot mark. Ned Oldham converted, and the score was 7-7. Though Army continued to play aggressive football, the score was still 7-7 when there was only time enough for one more play. Coach Blaik sent in Jim Kennedy to try a thirty-six yard field goal attempt. The kick fell short. Though Army had outgained Navy 237 yards to 132, and amassed twelve first downs to the Midshipmen ' s five, the final score was 7-7.

However, under the guidance of Coach Kress, in his second year with the team, three wins, two ties, and live losses was the record for the season. Bud Krapf captained the team with spirit and en- thusiasm, and helped to create a never-die attitude that made them a threat every minute of each game. Bob Allen and Bob Alshiemer sparked the scoring in the forward line. Dick Pfeiffer provided a stalwart blocking defense in the backfield. Charlie Moses fed in the all important set ups from his left wing position, and Mike Keating provided the backbone of the team ' s strength both on offensive and defensive at halfback. Though their record may not be impressive, their efforts were. The team showed the spirit and drive of a true Army team. Since most of these men had never seen a soccer ball prior to their arrival at West Point, their successes are more commend- able.

After losing to a powerful St. John ' s University team, they bounced right back into the winning column with a win over New York Uni- versity. Outstanding performances were turned in by Captain Steve Quaiannens, Jerry Lewis, Don Barlow, Wayne Nicoll, Bob Vermillion, and Stan Pore, along with Ron Kennedy and Bob Comeau, who were injured toward the end of the season. The team lost the next two to powerful Syracuse and Cornell, but then focused its attention on Navy, the final meet. This was the first time a Navy cross country team visited West Point in a dual meet. The Army runners, after getting off to a slow start, showed up ahead at the finish to win 24-33. This marked the seventh straight win over the Navy.

This spirit was evidenced in the mid-season game with Siena when the Cadets retired at halftime facing a 20 point deficit. In their battle of the second half they fought back to within 6 points of Siena ' s final score. The following game with Syracuse was point for point throughout until the Orange managed to break the tie with one second of play remaining. In the Manhattan game a record of three overtimes in a single game was set for Army. The tie was broken again in the last second of play. It takes that spirit to come back fighting and win three in a row. Captain Bob McCoy proved his value both offensively and defensively by scoring a total of 262 points for the season and by holding All-American, Chet Forte, to a meager 6 field goals in the Columbia game. Chuck Darby added to the ofl ensive punch with his 215 point total. Don De- Jardin ' s smooth set shots and Gene Fisher ' s left arm were equally good at scoring.

For members of the team this is be- cause they enjoy the participation and the friends they make while working together. With the spec- tators this is probably because they are seldom dis- appointed in the performance or the score. In 17-4 meets since 1931, Coach Maloney has tied 9 and won 140. Navy has not beaten Army in 9 years. The fourth floor gym was the scene of many inter- esting events for a gymnastic enthusiast. During daily practice the rope climbers did an outstanding job of guarding the chalk boxes, and the ringmen gradually became more efficient at getting the safety ropes down from their usual place some- where in the rafters. The net crews seldom missed the man they were trying to catch and the tumbling belts made it through the season with only a few casualties to their credit. Don Miller and Pete Calyer invented new tricks daily and Glen Runnion, manager, and Jimmy MacGill, tumbler, set a new record by making four practices in one week. The strong ring team of Bill Clark, J. O. Hanford, and Bill Giallourakis had about the most competi- tion that the five league teams could offer. Bill Thomson, team Captain, led the high bar through the year and became the Eastern high bar cham- pion for the second year straight. Gar O ' Quinn won the side horse championship and Paul Dean broke the academy rope climb record with a climb of 3.4 seconds and won the Eastern Championship with the same time.

Once again, the performance of the rifle team has been one of the highlights of the winter sports season. Losing only to St. John ' s University, the sharpshooters completed the season by edging Navy 1437-1432. There were many notable individual performances also. Captain Gordon Rogers, win- ner of a Golden Bullet Award from the National Rifle Association last year, and Jim Jones were nominated for National awards this year. Gordon Rogers and Gene Reget won Major " A ' s " for break- ing Academy records. Minor " A " winners were Jim Kaiser, Lou Circeo, Jim Jones, and Jim Burwell.

PISTOL In the field of marksmanship, the Army pistol team has always held its own against the best, and this year was no exception. During the summer of 1956, a six man team competed at Camp Perry and won eleven prizes, and all indications pointed towards a successful season. Under the guidance and direction of M Sgt. Benner and the assistance of Colonel Bowlin, the team quickly prepared for the winter season. Led by Captain George Rogers, outstanding performances were turned in by Lee Burner, Don Buckner, Ken Bryan, Bob Gadd, Joe Shimek, Wes Kidd, and Pete Chittick as the season progressed. The team set its sights on Navy and Royal Military Academy after winning the first three matches easily. The loss to Navy was only the second loss in pistol since M Sgt. Benner be- came coach. It was the first loss to a Navy team. However, the team bounced back and won the final match of the season with our traditional and colorful rivals, the Canadian Royal Military College.

As the season progressed, it surpassed every expectation and became the best Hockey Team ever to carry the Army name. The team also scored more goals and tallied more assists and points than any pre- ceding team. Every former Army individual record was also broken; Jimmy O ' Connor set new records for most goals, most assists, and most points for one season, and most assists and points for an in- dividual career. Team Captain Ed Hickey set a new standard in the only other important depart- ment. He scored more goals during his three years on the team than any Cadet in Army Hockey his- tory. A significant point to note is that most of the old records were passed by more than one player. Lenny McCormack, Skip Hettinger, and Mike Harvey topped one or more former marks, while Larry Asbury, Pete Dawkins, and Jack Farrell fol- lowed closely behind.

Army scored a brilliant victory over a strong R.M.C. team, win- ners of the Ottawa-St. Lawrence Conference Title. The game started at Smith Rink at a terrific pace, but neither team could penetrate the other ' s strong defense for most of the first period. Then one of Army ' s defensemen knocked down a high shot right in front of the Rabble ' s cage, and before it could be cleared, R.M.C. led 1-0. Army came right back as Jimmy O ' Connor and Ed Hickey each whipped one past the Canadians ' goalie. Then with only fifteen seconds remaining in the period, R.M.C. netted one more. In the second period Jimmy O ' Connor was the only player on either team able to score, but it was a big goal, as it put Army ahead in what looked like a game which would be tight till the end. The third period saw the Army team practically skate the Canadians off the ice. Army scored four more goals, while Larry Palmer squelched every R.M.C. attempt to get back in the game. The 7-2 victory was the most decisive one scored by Army since the series began in 1923, and true to the unique tradition in which the losers re- tain the trophy, the R.M.C. Team returned to Canada as custodians of the cup for another year. I I SWIMMING The most casual swimming enthusiast is compelled to admit that the 1956-57 swimming season was no ordinary one. The successive days of grueling practice were augmented by a certain vitality and strong sense of teamwork to produce this year ' s team. The stamina and ability which was demonstrated throughout the season cannot alone explain the success of this team. A professional experi- ment by Coach Gordon Chalmers, which had the swimmers engaged in football and various other calisthenics on the plain during the fall rather than in the pool, proved to be a vital factor in the outcome of the season. Captain Nick Robinson and his tight clad performers triumphed in nine of the thirteen scheduled meets. The 400 yard medley relay record was set in the meet against Duke by Pat Kirk, Matt Matthews, Edgie Waller, and Nick Robinson with a time of 4: 12.7. In the meet against Pittsburgh that record was bettered two tenths of a second by Pat Kirk, Jim Chapman, Edgie Waller, and Gordon Goodman. Frank Knight ended his Cadet swimming career with a record of 25 first places out of 26 meets in diving. For the last two years he has carried off the Eastern Intercollegiate diving championship. The Army swim- mers finished up the season with a six meet winning streak. The high scoring performers of the year were Gordon Goodman with 98 points, Nick Robinson and Pat Kirk, each with 86 points. The top performance of the year was the Army-Navy Meet in which the Army swimmers captured seven of the ten events. In the first event Pat Kirk, Matt Matthews, Edgie Waller, and Nick Robinson edged out the Middies and set a new pool and Academy record in the medley relay with a time of 4:04.2. The magnitude of Navy ' s bewilderment by this reversal was equalled only by Army ' s exuberance. The succeeding events clicked off in the same manner defeating the sailors 47-39.

After this opening, the team was slowed down by Iowa State. Army defeated Yale and then dropped a few close ones to Springfield and Syracuse. Army tied Lehigh, a traditionally powerful team in the East. The big meet of the season was undoubtedly Navy. This year was the first time Army and Navy met on the mats in a dual match. Navy lost to Lehigh, but were up for Army when the two teams met at Annapolis. Army lost the first round. However, with the experience gained coupled with the return next year of most of the lettermen, the team expects to reverse this year ' s score. Generally the team had a good season. Fine individual performances were turned in by Weisenseel, Novocratz, Phillips, Lenart, Hankee and Ellis. With Loren Reid, team captain, dropped from the unlimited class to 177 pounds.

After a strong start, which included vic- tories over Dartmouth and Princeton, the team fell into a late season lapse and lost to Yale, Har- vard, and Navy, Coach Nordlie ' s men had more than their share of hard luck for Captain Bill Bailey and O.K. Lewis, two of the best performers under pressure, missed several matches because of injuries. Junior Gaspard held down the top posi- tion and beat some of the top college players in the east. Tony Ellison won many key matches and was at his peak when he ran one of the best Princeton men off the court in three short games. Don Wil- liams always seemed to do better when the situation was rough. His outstanding accomplishment was a victory in the consolation tournament at the na- tionals.

Having lost only two members of last year ' s team, the 1957 team hoped to better last year ' s record of 5 wins and 2 defeats, including a 4-3 win over Navy, the last match going to the 19th hole. This year ' s veterans include Chico Stone, Captain; Ted Voorhees; Art Mace; Bill Park; Dick Groves; John Abernathy, and Harry Shedd. The new additions from last year ' s C-Squad are Jeff Davis and Jim Turner. The schedule included some of the best teams in the East; Penn State, Cornell, Man- hattan, Swarthmore, Navy, Princeton, Colgate, and Dartmouth. The Eastern Inter- collegiates were held at Navy this year and the team had several players in the playoffs.

The defense, led by Captain Ben Glyphis, Bill Yates, and Art Johnson, and the ever efficient goalie. Ray Riggan, along with Moon Mullins and Jack Wiegner, the mainstay of the midfield, all returned to provide Coach Morris Touch- stone with a well experienced team. To provide the depth necessary to press any advantage. Coach Touchstone had several outstanding prospects from last year ' s " C " Squad. Two of these were skillful attackmen. Steve Feitig and goalie Bill Fitzgerald. Most important, the team possessed the same driving spirit and skillful play which characterized the ' 56 season. The almost impossible task of finding replacements for ' 56 mid- fielders. Captain Johnny Higgins and Pete Lash, and at- tackmen Butch Harbold, Ed Valence, and All American Perry Smith, whose smooth performance and teamwork wore their opponents to a passive position, was accom- plished and with a team consisting of depth, drive, and skill, Army was bound to establish another creditable rec- ord and another victory over the Navy. 177 . .

To form the nucleus of the ' 57 club, many experi- enced ball players returned from the 1956 squad including Captain Lenny Marella, Joe Cygler, Butch Masterson, Leo McEvoy, and George Wil- liams. With keen competition for the remaining positions among ballplayers up from " B " Squad, the outlook for ' 57 was quite promising. Under the direction of Coach Joe Palone, the squad was out early in March and showed a lot of hustle right from the beginning. The schedule included the Ivy League schools and other Eastern colleges with the final contest against Navy, the all important game of the year. But with a good number of returning lettermen to replace such ballplayers as Denny Butler and Ralph Chesnauskes of the ' 56 squad. Coach Palone had the ingredients for a winning ball team right from the start. 178 i. BASEBALL The Camera catches a tense moment as the batter awaits the curve ball in che Cornell game.

Led by Captain Ted Johnson, the team com- pleted another successful season under the guidance of Coach Carlton Crowell. An exceptionally large number of lettermen returned to compete this year, and many out- standing performances were turned in by them as the season progressed. Among these were Bob Kyasky and Jim Smith in the dashes, pole vaulter Mike Keating, Jim Edgar in the hurdles, Jerry Scott and Bob Veal, shot put, middle-distance runners Jerry Jagrowski and Ted Johnson, John Hocker in the broad jump, John Kilpatrick and Willis Teale in the .i5 pound weight, javelin thrower Chip King, and Ron Kennedy, Bob Vermillion, Wayne Nicoll, and Steve Qua- tannens in the mile and two mile.

TENNIS Army ' s 1957 Tennis team, loaded with seven re- turning lettermen, looked with anticipation to a winning season this year. After facing stiff opposi- tion in 1956 and ending with an 8 won 8 lost rec- ord, the loss of only two graduated lettermen this year seemed very fortunate indeed. Such teams as Princeton, Harvard, Yale, and Navy, however, all on the 1957 agenda, presented formidable com- petition. Returning lettermen to the 1957 edition were First Classman Tony Ellison, Bill Bailey, and Junior Gaspard, and cows George Huff, Don Williams, Dave Powers, and Randy Rodenberg. Also com- peting on " A " sq uad were cows Chuck Oxreider and Jim Castle and Yearlings Bob Frey, Rush Yel- verton, Tom Seybold, and Dick Whitesides. On the Library Tennis Courts Ellison prepares to volley back at his opponent. Huff returns one with a tricky backhand. 182 4 The Engineers fidgeted with last minute adjustments on their slide rules as the Goats casually strutted onto the field, and once again the packed stands on the North Athletic Field eagerly awaited the kick off of the annual Thanksgiving Day classic, the Goat-Engineer Game. The Goats under the helm of Captain Kean were primed for the game against their archrivals, and the Engineers, coached by Captain Tavzel, were out to prove their prowess was not limited to the section room alone. Fred Goodenough inaugurated the clash by carrying the Engi- neer kick off to the Goat 29 yard line. It took three plays after the kick, with Bill Shepherd pitching and Ken Lohr receiving, to put the Goats ahead by six points. Shep passed for the extra point and the Goats quickly computed the score to be 7-0. The Engineers tried. Ron Short tried and tried to pass, but the Goats failed to be outmaneuvered. Don Forney took advantage of a Goat fumble and Joe Keyes carried it 2 yards. Ron Spurlock broke away for the final 12 yards to score. The try for the extra point missed, and the score was 7-6 in favor of the Goats. The second period saw Tom Sands calling the signals for the Hives and his passes were clicking. It looked as if the Engineers might pull ahead when Bill Ganey intercepted and sprinted 60 yards for a Goat score. And so the score remained throughout the game. Outstanding linemen, Don Forney and Bill Fagg of the Engineers, and Dan Yarr and Dave Coury of the Goats proved to be impenetrable. The final gun saw Bill Shepherd and Bill Ganey the pride of the jubilant Goats, as the Goats went down in the annals with a 13-6 victory. .tM, ' -.-11 ' I r- li-.-V-A ' .

Here in the subdued lighting of the interior, under the battle flags of past victorious Army Regiments, the Cadet finds inspiration for his vocation. Reverend George M. Bean, the Cadet Chaplain, and his assistant, Reverend A. F. Hill, in addition to their duties as spiritual advisors, are active supporters of Army activities from the Sunday School Teachers to the football team. The Cadet Chapel Choir furnishes the vocal music for the Sunday services in the Chapel accompanied by the largest organ in the western hemisphere.

Here in the Norman Gothic edifice, reminiscent of an English Carthusian Abbey, the spiritual needs of the Catholic Cadets are fulfilled. Monsignor Mcore and Father McCormick have attempted to make this the second home of the Catholic Cadets. The Catholic Chapel squad experienced a rather busy year. With the help of Lieutenant Colonel Rienzi and Captain Griflith, the Officers in Charge of the squad, all the activities were revitalized. The Catholic Chapel Choir, led by Fred Koehler, and the Acolytes, led by Leo McEvoy, performed with distinction on the squads ' trips to Blessed Sacra- ment Church in New York, Sacred Heart Church in Mount Vernon, and Saint Patrick ' s Cathedral.

Since Third Class year, the Class Officers, under the direction of Bill Ellis, Class President, have supervised the Class business of a non-military nature. With the help and advice of the First Class Committee, the offi- cers have directed Class activities during the academic year. However, the duties of the Class Officers do not really begin until after graduation. After leaving West Point, the class integrity ' must be maintained. So it is the function of the Class Officers to keep the members of the class in- formed, and represent the class in all matters of their interest. In addition, reunions, meetings, and all class functions after graduation must be arraneed. Seated (lefl to light): Col. J. J. EwcU, Officcr-in-Charge; Jordan, H.

Honor Qo nmittee Each cadet is his o ' n honor representative; the individual cadet must weigh and decide his own personal values of honor. However, there are twenty-four honor representatives elected each year who serve to guide the Corps along the straight and narrow path. This group, the Honor Committee, has the function of aiding the Corps in observing the rule, " A cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal. " In addition to inter- preting the honor code governing life at West Point, the Honor Committee investi- gates and decides cases of possible honor violations by individual cadets. The Honor Committee did not always enjoy its present position of esteem. Initially the committee was without sanction. The committee originated spontaneously from the demands of the cadets, who felt that any man who lied, cheated, or stole did not merit remaining at the Academy. Operating as the vigilantes for many years, without the approval of the T.D., the cadets finally decided to form an organized group to perform the function which they had previously served. As is done today, each company elected one man to represent them on the committee. Today, sanctioned by the T.D., the Honor Committee crystallizes the feeling of the Corps for honesty and truth. 200 Jirst Qlass Qommittee The First Class Committee, consisting of the class officers plus one First Classman representing each company, acts as an intermediator between the Corps and the Tactical Department. Voicing the complaints of the Corps with the Hotel Thayer, the Post Laundry, the Cadet Store, and the other establishments is a major function of the Committee. The Automobile Committee, consisting of members of the Class Committee, is responsible for arranging and conducting the Automobile Display in the fall, and the arrangements for dealers to visit West Point during the Spring. This group is probably one of the most popular and busiest organizations during First Class Year. Furthermore, policy making and operation of the Fourth Class System has become a major responsibility of the Committee during the past few years. Discussing all subjects from the Class Club TV sets to the Class gift, the Committee takes great pride in representing the interests of the Corps, and likes to consider itself West Point ' s answer to student government.

M. l|omttor Given the mission of producing the yearbook for the class of 1957, the Howitzer Board was con- fronted with a dilemma; whether to follow the path of least resistance, manufacturing a carbon copy of previous books, or to produce what they felt was truly indicative of their class. In the 1957 Howitzer sentimentalism is minimal. If at times sarcasm and wit, and a cynic ' s humor pervade what heretofore was sacrosanct, it is because reality was our object. Mirroring four years through the eyes of the class of 1957 was our goal. Reflection of their outlook, not the creation of a false image, was our aim. The men responsible for the Howitzer, from the Editor to the copy boy, were deemed by authorities " the most diverse assortment of radicals ever assembled. " Policy discussions ranged from " Playboy " to " Mad Comics " with editorial comments of Plato to garnish the opinions. But these men were not merely blase, they had a purpose. From the day Gino became Editor and Chairman of the Board, he was secretly dubbed " the Shogun " and at other times, " Napoleon. " In the best autocratic traditions he lived up to his name; situations changed, official sanction wavered, but policy was immutable. Jenkins complained incessantly about inadequacies of the darkroom, photo equipment, and photo staff, yet as Photo Editor he produced it or procured it. As the dual heads of the Hotvitzer ' s fifth column. Bud Miller and Buck Rogers kept a tight hold over the Company Reps, while the five figure business of the organization was manipulated by Jesse James. As Business Manager, " the little train robber " juggled acc ounts to keep us perpetually in the black. With the job of increasing circu- lation among a clientele already 125% :irculated. Bob Winters faced a Herculean task. While all this transpired on the homefront. Bob Merrick ventured across the continent with his Advertising staff, selling ads and collecting funds. Being a Howitzer man identified us not only as " radicals " to some, but businessmen in our own right. We are proud of our independence from any Departmental control, and contented with our self-sufficiency in being the only non- profit organization operating in the upper bracket. Effi- ciency, use of the tricks of the trade, devotion to immutable policy, all these produced what we consider the best Howitzer — the 7957 Howitzer. Major John W. Moses and Major Leland C Ecklon, Officers-in- Charge of the Howitzer, check over our profits and losses, main- tain liaison with Headquarters USMA, and provide the stabilizing influence in the Howitzer organization.

Hop Committee Girls! Girls! Girls! The men in the red sashes found a little more to their jobs than making pleasant and proper introductions for eager Cadets. Between the uninhibited cry of Plebe year: " Introduce me to that one " and the sophisticated comment of Graduation Hop: " Oh him? A Hop manager— nothing! " there was work. Though the Corps at times doubted it, the planning of social schedules for summer trips and for the long academic year took a great deal of coordination. But, hard work is its own reward, and based on that bit of philosophy, the men of the Hop Committee had more than adequate compensation. The experience of meeting a variety of people and the knowl- edge gained in the social graces of the military world were valuable bonuses to the Hop Committee and to us.

Two speakers register diverse reactions to a Cadet ' s arguments in a Saturday afternoon de- bate at West Point. To help cadets cultivate the abilities to think on their feet and to express themselves logically and forcefully is the aim of the Debate Council and Forum. In this pursuit debaters play host to stu- dents from many colleges, and travel throughout the country for public debates and tournaments. The culmination of the debating season occurs in April when winners of regional tournaments travel to West Point for the National Invitational Debate Tournament. Forum activities include an extensive seminar program, presentations by guest lecturers, cadet participation in discussion groups at civilian colleges, and the annual Student Conference on United States Affairs. In this conference representa- tives of the faculties and student bodies of more than 50 colleges in the United States and Canada meet at West Point to exchange ideas in informa- tive discussions in the broad field of U. S. foreign policy. Thus the Debate Council and Forum pro- vides an opportunity for cadets to gain experience in administering special events involving visiting civilians and all levels of the military organization, and to pursue further the studies of national and international affairs.

To produce an informative examination and discussion of the national security policy of the United States was the primary purpose of the Eight Student Conference on United States Affairs. The Activities which began on December 5 th continued through four days of conferences, roundtable discussions, and plenary sessions, and gave the various col- lege students from all over the country the opportunity to meet and discuss the National Security Policy of the U.S. The group was welcomed by the Superintendent, who con- tinued to show great interest in the conference, often sitting in on the discussions. During the course of the program. General Maxwell D. Taylor, Chief of Staff of the Army, addressed the group on the need for National Security and the vulnerabilities of the free world. For the representatives of the sixty-four colleges present it was a unique situation whereby all points of view, Military as well as civilian, could be exchanged, over roundtables discussing the Atlan- tic Community, the Middle East and Africa, or the USSR and Satellites. 212 ( Johnny Hocker talks over last minute plans with Duke Ellington before the latter ' s Special Program performance. 7hc hig iiiLii ot the Spcti.il l ni rain (Committee C f ' right I: George Richardson, Johnny Hocker.

During the winter months, the Special Programs on Sunday afternoon may range from an exhibition by the Swedish Gym Team to a piano recital by Roger Williams. In catering to the diversified tastes of the Cadet and Post personnel, the committee has an overwhelming task, which it meets with great capability and resourcefulness.

X anguage lubs As an officer in the service of our country, the ability to express oneself in a foreign language is of great importance in these days of close international relations. The junior officer who is qualified as an interpreter or translator in one or more languages has another specialty to enhance his ' service career. For the purpose of promoting fluency in ai foreign language, and interest in the customs and tradi- tions of foreign lands, the Language Clubs at West Point carry on a dynamic program. The five separate Clubs, com prising the languages taught here, maintain similar but uniquely different programs. The French, Spanish, Portu- guese, German, and Russian Clubs all sponsor lectures) and movies in the " native " tongue for Club members. In addition to this, each group conducts a trip to New Yorld city twice annually, to visit the United Nations, or to attend a play by Moliere performed by a visiting French Company, or to attend a Russian Orthodox Easter Service. The Spanish Club holds seminars on the Spanish speaking countries while the French Club publishes the bi-weekly paper " Le Bon Mot " for Club Members. That they furnish a cosmopolitan outlook is perhaps the best feature of the Clubs, for they enable the Cadet, the future officer, to gain a glimpse of his neighbors in our ever shrinking world.

Bcint; the oldest extra-curricular activity at West Point, the Dialectic Society holds an envious position in an institution that respects tradition. We boast of an impres- sive alumni, which includes once president of our organization, and later another kind of president, U. S. Grant. In 1S71 the Dialectic Society was housed in what then composed South Area. That year however, the whole place burned down, and in the confusion all our records, history, and everything else we o ' ned were lost. Everything but the name was lost, but being a little stubborn and proud of the tradition we had started in 1816, we soon reorganized, and started producing " Hundredth Night Shows. " We really didn ' t like being a Debate Council anyway, and left that to the Social Science Department. Once the ball started rolling again, it never stopped. Every year since 1871 there ' s been a show, and so firmly entrenched is the tradition by this time, that discontinu- ing it would be like calling off June Week. Like every good organization, we have a staff: President is Jack Cooper, Vice- President is Jim Trainor, and Secretary is Dan Carter. Just to counteract the opinion that H-1 might be dabbling in politics, the business manager hails from E-1, and goes by the name of Fletch Elder. Well, here it is, knee deep in paint, wires, hammers and nails, and actors and directors, the Dialectic Society!

" This year ' s show, like all the rest, was dedicated to that end. " The Red and the Grey, " ' 57 ' s attempt for theatrical recog- nition, was written by H-l ' s Jim Trainor. But the show only began with the writing. There were the long after- noons in January when we all thought we ' d never finish; there were the cold weekends in the ice house, with Larry Sutherland ' s boys hammering out the props. Jack Carson and his boys painting scenery, John Dubbelde overseeing all with the help of Tom Keeley; and finally, we all sweated under the iron fist of Glenn Andrews and his direction staff. Sometimes it got downright discouraging, but on opening night, the applause and laughs made it all worth while, and some of us sort of wished wc could do it all over again. With these shots of the people who put it all together, acted, directed, produced, and sang in it, we give you " The Red and the Grey, " the Hundredth Night Show of 1957.

This plus the magnetism of Chris- tianity gave us the closeness necessary to make this the smooth-running organization that it was.

The Voice and Choice of the Corps we dubbed ourselves, KDET, West Point ' s own radio station, featuring music, news, drama, and sports, seven days a week. One of the Corps ' newest activities, KDET quickly became one of the most popular, providing entertainment not only for the members of its staff but also for every barracks radio listener as well. With a record library of selections numbering in the hun- dreds, the Signal Corps ' best equipment, and a willing group of amateurs, KDET began operation on Monday the third of November 1955. Although the first year ' s opera- tions were limited in scope, broad horizons of opportunity beckoned and the challenge was accepted. Soon the first anniversary was celebrated, the best birthday present being a larger, more powerful transmitter, which could reach the entire Corps without the famous sixty cycle hum. Highlights of 1956 included the obtaining of station breaks by such people as Rosemary Clooney and Ed Sullivan, the inauguration of " By Request, " and a vastly expanded sports coverage with presentations from as far away as Annapolis.

These seminars are attended by members of the First Class and moderated by officers interested in the specific field. Some of the subjects covered were humanism, science and reli- gion, American education, communism, literature and cen- sorship, and marriage. Supplemented by lectures, movies, and retreats, the Newman Club activities resulted in a most rewarding inspiration to the Cadets.

" It all began back in the spring of 1956 when someone was gazing around and noticed the abandoned observatory on the roof of the East Academic Building. Captain Enderle, now Astron- omy Club Oflicer-in-Charge, interested a few of the usually lethargic Cadets in the possibilities of utilizing the SVi inch reflecting telescope and clockwork-drive mechanism. This year, the As- tronomy Club was organized and a dynamic mem- bership drive was begun. Activities of the new ( lub include self education in Astronomy and observation of the Heavenly bodies and Celestial phenomena. 234 What a year! We never thought Captain Hughes would make it through the ordeal of his first year as Assistant OC in charge of business activities. Every time Mac McCullom turned in a financial estimate of our alleged net worth, the good captain would pour over the figures with Major Mulkey, the OC of the magazine. This process would be followed by a harassing call to your Editor-in-chief during which Captain Hughes would explain ho ' the Pointer was slipping further and further into the " Heart of Darkness " of financial obscurity. Ail the fretting and worrying were nicely eased when a stray $1,000 or §2,000 checks were sporadically corralled and salted away in the bank. Then everything was fine until the next financial crisis when the worrying started all over again. We suggest that funds be appropriated from somewhere to provide a home for retired Pointer OC ' s who have suffered nervous breakdowns. But nothing bothered ol ' Tim ( Pyrene ) Murchison. No, nothing at all — just don ' t ask him why Pyrene ' s closing lines so often were " . . . i wish i were dead " Guess Boris finally got to him. And what about thanks? We could never thank all our friends enough for what they ' ve done to bring The Pointer successfully through its 24th year of publication. Tim and George, Swede and Dick, Mac and Ted were the best bunch of guys an editor could ask for as a board, not to mention the other hundred men on the staff who provided the copy and distributed the matrazines.

By the showing of skiing films and the giving of instruction in correct skiing and accident prevention, the Club accomplishes its former mission. In order to field a team, certain Cadets are selected from the more accomplished members who undergo inten- sive training in the four competitive events: downhill, slalom, cross country, and jumping. In addition to their workouts on the Victor Constant slope here, the Club members often venture to Stowe, or even to Switzerland as they did during Christmas leave in 1954.

We thought our troubles were over having reached the safety of a flanker company; obviously there was much to learn. Our first year didn ' t seem to go quite as fast as everyone said it would, but soon we went our homeward way. Yearling year— " Is that really someone else bracing? " — came and went, and we were plunged unmercifully into cow academics. All of a sudden it was June ' 56 and we were the firsties, the privileged few. Captain Hickey departed for Korea and away we went to Bliss and points in between. September found Swede holding the reins and Captain Swett cracking the whip, and we settled down to enjoy weekends, privileges, and finally cars. Suddenly it was June Week, our June Week, and the end was in sight, and as we bade farewell to " A no. 1, " the surviving 26 of us had to admit that it was a four years we could never forget. 249 Capt.

The memories will always be with us— the somnolent indifference of Piebe and Yearling years, the gradual welding together during Cow year, and finally coming out on top when it paid off. Who will ever forget the midnight poop sessions in the sinks, when even the O. C. took pity on us, because all our " stars " were on b- robes and gray jackets. In the end most of us have made it through, and we all feel the same about our four years together that made us a team that can ' t be beaten. On the drill field or on the playing field, we all pull together.

We managed to survive the first three years of work but the last one was a real killer! The T D continually came at us in waves of different " Great Captains " but we stood our ground— and here we are. Some of us have changed from rosy-cheeked civilians into real, honest-to-goodness cadets with many notable accomplishments. P.N. developed a horse laugh. Art and Ed beat Navy. Bish and Don kept their O.A. ' s. T.G. became a Rabble Rouser. Ken took six months. Harry got his knees together. Snake missed breakfast. Mike developed sweet feet. Kerry passed the P.F.T. daily.

When the rest of the company left to recuperate at Christmas, we moved into the 10th together for the holidays. At this point, we became a close knit band of brothers and founded the D-1 Lunch Club. Although we did everything from partying at the " Pic " to sitting in the " company section " at the show together, we still maintained our individuality. Some be- come engaged, some played the field, and some did both. In spite of our social activities, we successfully eluded the academic board and the tactical department, spent yearling year under the red boy, cow year in the sinks, and became firsties only slightly diminished in strength. Although graduation will find our ranks depleted by the marriage of one third of the class, all of us will always be members of Company D-1.

On the fields of friendly strife we had our representatives in the persons of Bernie, Bish, Dick Pfeiffer, Jack, and Chico. Naturally we will remember the many little humorous facets of our various careers: Sid ' s four-year brace, Mozambique ' s dramatic swim after Homer, Dune ' s unique extracurricular activity. Head ' s constant attention in class, Carl ' s Piccadilly tours, E.J. and the market. Mai lived solely for the Gym, B.P. and Fletch kept the extracurricular activities going, as Slimy did to the trains. And of course, with Beaker around, let the drag beware. We couldn ' t go wrong with Tom at the helm, and we had more than our share of hives, with Robin, Ed Quill and Ed Wilhelm leading the way. At the perennial bridge game were Joe, George, and Barney. Now that it ' s all over, we know how lucky we were to spend our four years with such great classmates as those in Easy-One. Major J. W.

With a fierce pride in being obnoxious, especially at tactics forma- tions, we were known throughout the Corps for our " stick- togetherness. " Though most of Firstie year was spent in breaking in a new Tac to our set ways, the gentle coughings of his predecessor will not be forgotten. Names like Baga the money-maker, Benny the Mooch, Weasel, Pudge, Bug, and the Wretch are symbolic of F-1 characters. Our rowdy spirit carried over to intramurder where, coupled with our accomplishments at drill, we felt if you can ' t be first, be last, but at least do something of distinction. In leaving the " Rock " , we can look back on four years of fun, friendship, and fanatical disinterest. But F-Co ' s crew will always regard these four years as unforgettable in many ways.

Bud Langworthy, whenever his girl wasn ' t down from Poughkeepsie, Jim Newsom, if he wasn ' t making model tanks, or Ace, when he wasn ' t flipping his teeth at you, were all willing to help the green-chalk boys.

But, they never caused trouble, did they. Parks? Gubby was finally appointed " BB ' s " seeing-eye dog. We never could convince Bill and Jon that those noises weren ' t music. Of course we early found out that our morals were safe with Kelby and Foster. Sniff had a girl-of-the-month club and ended up with a Jaguar. Charlie read Clausewitz.

One bright sunny day early in September, 1953, thirty-four quaking plebes directed themselves toward the dark remote corner of South Area occupied by the notorious I-l. Four years, four Tac ' s, and two drill streamers later we look back to see that it didn ' t hurt much after all. We lost eleven people along the way, but despite a few summer colds from Juarez, those who remained, twenty-three Natives and one " flanker " imported from the 2nd Battalion, stuck to it just long enough to grab those gold bars.

From that point on, Grant Hall ceased to be the center of West Point Life. The Bachelor Club of K-1 grew to such proportions that at one point all the fair maidens in the world seemed destined to be old maids. But alas, even this group of pseudo-intellects had a sentimental side, and one by one, we saw promises wrested from them by the fairer sex. As the unattached grew fewer in number, weekends found them escaping reality by running to the woods and seeking solace in Mother Nature. Although crushed fingers tempered our novice carpenters, a log cabin was finally erected in memory of those who no longer speak for themselves. If this weren ' t enough, hotels will attest to the awesome precision of one of K-l ' s ' Company Parties. " At times life was hilarious, at times it was sheer drudgery, but the characters will always remain unforgettable. w W pr J i.

Somehow we never wore stars on our dress coats but we sure had a lot on our b-robes. We had our athletes and heroes but our chief asset was an ability to get along with each other and take all the blows philosophically. Settling down by yearling Christmas we spent the next two years improving our positions and finally elected " Echie " to play leader the last year. We also used our interior lines in Central Area to best advantage and found that it pays off to be Lenny ' s friends. Although firmly indoctrinated by tanker tacs we have kept our perspective and are sending forth representatives to all branches. We didn ' t win all the prizes and trophies but we had a lot of fun and we know we could have had them if we wanted them. 275 Capt. J. M. Slocum, Armor Tactical Officer, A-2 B-2.

The four years of endeavor and perform- ance were difficult; yet each man thought far ahead to that day when diploma and commission would be the fruits of his labor. Memories of " poop sessions " in the sinks of the 20th when poop carried a high premium, " birthday " shower formations, the many parties in the big city, and a duel with old Spanish customs will remain for a great many years in the sentimental corner of each man ' s mind. Aca- demics and the daily routine were often trying, and yet we realized it was for a purpose. Yes, West Point and B-2 have made a definite imprint in the heart and minds of these men of B-2. i- ' , FOURTH CLASS: (left to right) J Rou— Finley, GA; Lusky, HH; Halsall, RW; Halloway, A; iillips, HA; Herman, DA. 2 id Ron — Lacey, VK; Jhung, G; Jans, BF. }rd Ron— DeWitt, JL; Watson, HC; Gates, RH; ;;-nbaugh, C. 4th Row — Swain, PC; Baker, D; Campbell, DL.

We squared corners and dashed past " Apache Pass " for a year and then earned the first shield. Wearing that first shield proved a pleasure; academics left us foot loose and fancy free . . . which translated means " redboy bound " , of course. We took a few drill streamers, played cousin to all in intramurder, and began to break in the second shield. This one was tough to wear. Moments, shear, and only two weekends, and we lost Gargan. Then that third shield appeared. We ' ve worn it for a year now, with pride and the awareness of responsibility. Rings, weekends, cars ... we have run the course now. We are leaving C-2 for new but capable hands to guide. So long, and good luck. 279 Major J. E. Edington, Armor Tactical Officer.

Having lost our 25 ' r during Plebe Year, we ' ve ever since had our share wearing stars on their dress coats as well as more than our share wearing them elsewhere. Summer training periods aided us in spreading our gay company culture through the rest of the Corps and the civilian population. Having sacked through Year- ling Year and mucked our way through Cow Year, we hurled ourselves merrily into a First Class Year of re- sponsibilities, decisions, and still more parties.

Speaking of getting a chin over the bar, we also had our share of athletes in the company, specifically football. And we had our share of fat men. Our faith was restored in the true tradition of the fat football when " Fitz " took the i; honors.

To create this somberly assiduous, cunningly deceptive impression demanded the ultimate effort from the competent command of companionable character. Among their amazing achievements, one eminently projected with lofty grandeur so as to subject boundless material accom- plishments to everlasting oblivion: The drill streamer w;is shot down. In spite of this monstrous incongruity, the traditional spirit of our barracks life endured nobly; that which was dissembled with such calculating dexterity did not vanish due to perfunc- tory inhibitions.

A group of American Army officers, seeing the need of immediate help for their families in emergency, with moderate cost to themselves, instituted this voluntary, non-profit, mutual bene- fit and relief association in 1879. For over seventy-eight years, this strictly mutual enterprise, con.stituted and directed by its Army Officer membership, has provided Army Officers with a basic amount of life insurance at reasonable rates, has consistently made immediate pay- ments of benefits and never defaulted upon a payment. It is the only completely mutual benefit association limiting eligibility for membership to Army Officers. The institution ' s strongest advocates are its members and the dependents it has helped. It maintains no agents working on commission and no profits or savings accrue to any one except those insured. It has survived the later Indian campaigns, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection, the Boxer Rebellion, World War I and World War II as well as panics and economic depressions. It is a strong institution today. Those insured are carefully selected risks of varied age, rank and duty in the Army or retired. The membership growth too has been gradual, consistent and healthy, and the increa.se in members has conformed closely to the increases in the Army since the inception of the institution. The mortality rate has averaged low. The age of its members has held comparatively young. The financial reserve is larger than ever before and considerably exceeds actuarial requirements. Death benefits are paid instantly, $1,500 being transmitted by wire if desired and the balance by mail. Benefits paid are in excess of the face value of certificates of insurance. An outstanding feature of the Association ' s work is its help in preparing the pension and other claims for the bereaved parents, widows and children of its members. This service, by trained and experienced personnel, assures the de- pendents of members that they will be fully informed concerning rights to Govern- ment allowances. The importance of this service may be appreciated by the fact that families of officers who were not members of the Association are known to have lost thousands of dollars because of failure to file timely claims and proper supporting evidence for pensions and other Government allowances. Assistance is also given in the preparation of claims for the collection of other insurance. Every eligible Army Officer should become a member and support the work of this Association, both as a matter of good business and as a matter of esprit de corps. 488 On the firing range at Camp Buckner, November 1956.

Operator (r.) interprets audible radar echoes while second soldier tracks reported movements on plotting board. Unit supplies accurate elevation, azimuth and range data. Newspaper readers across the country learned recently the good news that Army troops will soon be able to call on the world ' s smallest radar set to warn of surprise over-the-ground attack by an aggressor. The device greatly enhances the effectiveness of battle area surveillance. Developed jointly with the Army Signal Corps, this new Sperry portable radar instantly reports any movement of men or vehicles within a 3-mile range— at night, in fog or smoke. So accurate is the set that it detects one soldier walking half a mile away, even tells whether a vehicle has wheels or tracks. This new " Silent Sentry " is one more result of the joint efforts of our military leaders and Sperry to keep our defenses up-to-date. Like the Sperry MPQ-10 Mortar Locator, which tracks enemy shells and computes their origin for instant, accurate counter-fire, or the Sperry flight control systems which enable SAC bombers to fly to pinpoint targets anywhere in the world, it helps preserve peace by deterring aggression. eVROSCOPE COMPANY Great Neck, New York DIVISION OF SPERRY RAND CORPORATION M, No Overhead At All !
