For eleven seasons following his graduation he coached football at the Academy. Toward the end of 1932, while still a second lieutenant and 29 years of age, he became the youngest head coach West Point has ever had.

Landing at Casablanca, he served as General Patton ' s engineer in the First Armored Corps in North Africa and in the Seventh Army in Sicily. He continued in that position under General Patch in Southern France and Germany. During the hectic first year of the Korean War, he fought as a combat infantry- man, notably in the Naktong perimeter fighting. After the Korean War, he became the senior ground force advisor in the Weapons Systems Evaluation Group in the Pentagon. In 1954 he assumed command of the Command and General Staff College, then came from there in July 1956 to become Superintendent of the Military Academy.

" lli,- , Gue - «l.o iu-t ( rode. Cenm im letter! the-. rep latei Stand ka. paoe. C-Sio aod; Here Here and beast barracks .1 Over seven hundred strong, the Class of 1958 walked, rode, climbed and descended upon the concrete pavments of Central Area that first hot day in July, 1954. From our first intimate meeting with the beast detail to that last parting glance as we abandoned our temporary rooms for the regular lettered companies, we were aware of one thing— this was not the " glory " of West Point. . . . We learned the most difficult sentence in the English language soon after our arrival: " Sir. New Cadet Brintnall reports to the first Sergeant as ordered. Sir! " We learned to take orders: " Drop that bag, Mr. Benjamin! Now pick it up! Stand tall. DuCrot Densford! " It was certainly a quaint dia- lect. . . . The routine picked up and was soon moving at a rapid pace. Original issues. Meeting roommates— and Squad Leaders. C-Store formations by the dozens. Parades. Late Ranks. Hikes and paragraphs and paragraphs of other activities. . . . We even spent some pleasant afternoons in the Theater Lobby. Abernathy! Here. Sir! Andreson! Here, Sir! Asbury! Here, Sir! Bacon! Here. Sir! Schonberger! Here. Sir! Shely! Here, Sir! Shepard! Here. Sir! " All right, you men file through and get your shots now. . . . The old liutern Our Saturday morniugs were spent on the Plain. ■ !«( nionth . Why was it thai Yarr, York. Young, Yiirick. and our perpetual rear guard, Barry Zwick, were always the tirst to reach the C-Store and the last to leave? Alphabetical, of course. " At ' ta fit you fine, Mr. Cook, a ' take it home. " " A-take it home. Misters Shetler an Shimerda, Misters Shunk and Simmers " . . . . . and the Tactical Deparlin.-iil .lid their lull•e too. - ' , t-. And finally the day came. After having surrendered al our earthly possessions for three long weeks, manna fell from the finance office. Each cadet would receive forty-two cents to spend as he might please. Certainly was a crowd at the Boodlers. Certainly was a problem, eh, Les Gibbings? How were new cadets Spencer and Spurlock going to spend their new found wealth? Mister Stender purchased 1 pint of ice cream and 4 candy bars, while Mister Williams. . . . The end of August found the class in the field— the Plebe Hike, stroll through the Highlands. Quartermaster evaluation test, the mobile hit parade of the top marching songs. Mar- shall, Martin, Ward, Wees, Welch. Mason, Miller, Mitchell, Moore, Morgan, Plod, plod, plod. Oh, I got a girl in New Orleans. . . . September to une Several weeks after that, we are again marching, but this time on the plam in our Acceptance Parade to the Corps. Beast Barracks was over, our brief, difficult ( at times humor- ous) introduction to Plebe year and Cadet life was in the past. Sibert. Weckel. Conti, Wildey, Monson, Wilson and Wrubel could look with pride, they ' d joined the Corps. . . . A-1 through M-2. we all found our rooms— finally. Granted, the first introductions were a bit stiff ' : " Who am I, Dumbsmack? " . and the reply often pointed and confused: " I do not know. Sir! " ' , but it was a start, for Cadet Worsham. or Roe. or Roosma. Olson or Bauer. . . . September of " 54 found us cracking the first books- Graphics. Mathematics. Tactics, a language. English and the like. Bunker. Brookhart. Walker, and others perhaps, opened them a little more often than others; but the first eliminations at semester ' s end convinced most that cadet life had more than one side. . . . Honor began to play a big part in our lives. The ever present absence card, the well-defined blackboard borders, the nine All-Rights. At first a dreaded and difficult concept. Honor became a way of life— an easy and efficient way of measuring our own ability. More important than the formalities govern- ing honor was the personal concept, the fact that a pen scrib- bling out a signature was heavy with responsibility, the pleasure that our word was accepted without question. Some left us. . . . Company life, at first erratic and unplanned, began to fold into well oiled lines. The Fourth Class Customs and Tradi- tions. The Bugle Notes, the Blue Book. Plebe duties. Acker- man carrying the mail, Clarke and Clary call ing the minutes, Davis and Bahnsen dragging clothes. Distasteful, but required, these were the elements of the fourth estate. . . . Football season brought a few welcome hours of freedom away from the campus: New York City and Columbia, New Haven and Yale— and at last. Navy. Farr, Foulkes, Howard, Lohr and the rest of us were none too bright after that first encounter. Misters Brown, Clark, Edwards and Evans sat with heavy hearts and heaved in chins the following week in Washington Hall, joined by Rossetto and Rudolph and Rup- precht. Donovan and Eliot. . . . 49 plebe Christmas and spring leave Southern Sweepstakes — Ouih! - I I next year. Hark the Herald doolies sing. . . . That great day the upper three classes were replaced by the more sociable friends, relatives and drags. Plebe Christmas. Johnson and Jones, Ryan and Saint, even Klowskowski and Waskowicz couldn ' t help but enjoy this passive freedom. Hops, Shows, the Southern Sweepstakes, skiing, skating and the like. Eggnog and a tree in Washington Hall. The pleasure of eating the Christmas meal with my family. Midnight in the gym and the balloons that didn ' t fall quite right. There wasn ' t the usual round of home spun parties or the family cat, but if you were lucky, there was the right girl. It passed all too quickly, and soon. . . . it was 1955— already six months had passed. We ' d accom- plished much as a class already, elected our hop managers, our ring reps, our class representatives. Our numbers had been thinned somewhat. We were drawing ourselves into a solid front. Timberlake, Talgren, Swanson, Salisbury, Sampson, Sands, Ruud, Bradshaw, and the rest of " fifty-eight " were ill prepared for what was soon to come, called. . . . ms Gloom period. It closed its sullen wraps over the Military Academy, and the winter snows and band box reviews, the open windows in Major so-and-so ' s English section, the de- cline in letters for Cadets Bauchspies and Connell, the per- petual calls, the O.C. ' s knock at the door, the Days, the frozen feet in ranks, the Wednesday night steak and the Sunday cold- cuts cut another deep rut in our manner of living. Then came the night when Case braced his company commander, and Moscatelli, Nardi. Forney spent hours clean- ing out the remnants of the One Hundredth Night capers. February came and passed. It looked for a while like the snows would never go. but finally. . . . Clements and Coffey and Coleman noticed it. The steam was no longer in Central Area, the grass on the Plain was clear. Father Thayer cast away his cape and put on Ber- mudas— Spring was here. The F.D. hats came out of the trunk lockers, intramurals began to form in the area, the beat of drums sounded dreaded drill period. Shea, Williamson. Scales, Vanture. Toftoy. Stambaugh— none anxious to learn the pa- rade sonss, but each one brinizing us closer to. . . . KlOth Night. 195 i 1 M IN THE DEAD OF WINTER recognition June will come soon. . . . The last day of plebe year had arrived. The last time. The end of our apprenticeship. The refrain crossed the Plain, the Class graduating took the salute. Odd, not one correction during the parade. But the lirst foot on the pavement brought barbarian sounds from some corner of the massed formation, and it soon sounded as though some crass Plebe had come without the graces of his trousers. Slam that head in. Mister Brinson, Mister Chase. Misters Coury and Fernandez, Franks and Hirata, Isaacson and Lindquist, Looney, Lyon and Lupi— for the last time. Glad to meet ya. . . . i I ear ling y ear after one year we got our )ur first good look at West Point... 57 : k 5 Who said Plebe Year was over. " On the sunny shores of Lake Popolopen at camp buckner Our reviews were held on Range ' " ■ 1 ' i . . or macnine-gun range Following graduation exercises in the field house, we took our first leave— thirty days of it. To the seven winds we scattered, Kulik. Kusek, Kyle and Kramp smiHng; all too soon to return and face their glum classmates Harlem, Hayden. Schaeffer, Schluter. Schneider, and Schonberger already set- tling at . . . Camp Buckner! Country Club and hell-hole wrapped in one. A professional indoctrination well mixed with a social education. The first serious ties for some of us. the first A-Pins. the first of many beno " s. The first sailing, the first military train- ing. Tank gunnery, field problems, bridge building, assault river crossings, and field manuals, and field manuals, more of lectures, application, and learning. . . .

Here! McCaffrey! Here! Sir. the Guard is formed. Two on and four off was a little different from Plebe barracks guard, and all too often more humorous with the raccoons, waiters and women prowling the camp. . . . The Camp Illumination Weekend approached all too soon. The C-Rations hadn ' t been too bad. the windowless barracks livable, the G.I. parties an unorthodox form of en- tertainment, but our time was over. No more " chicken " races between Reid and Sigurski, the bags were packed and the company destinations placed neatly beside the names Baker, Ciasullo. Fay. Henninger. Larson, Sedgwick. Seiler. Seltzer, Serchak. Millspaugh, Price, anon. . . . Some dragged pro. others de. but friend and snake alike enjoyed our own show and the names of Finkenaur. Stritzinger. Rector, Castle, and the rest. The hop was packed, as was the snow covered Chapel Point. It must have done the guard ' s heart good to see the steady stream of white uniforms and formals pass his post. To him we shall erect a monument: he protected our lives! That one night it was Cooper; or Kubiak or Corcoron or someone. ... We worked ith the Inf t ll l.1i1 ; rKt?.t i " work hard- play hard " A lillle exlra-currinila enjoy the company of tlie opposite sex. : September, 1955, brought with it the confusion and sub- terfuge of Reorganization Week. Who were those strange beings with the wrinkled necks? Of course, Plebes! Sir, you are Mr. Munger, er., Mr. Raymond, er., Mr. Robertson, er. " Sir: The third class drill roll: Sullinger, Sutherland, Teeter, Thamasett, Tharp, Theibert, Thomas, Thomp.son. . . . After having looked so longingly for twelve long months, our dress coats were sporting that very heavy stripe, and our class shirts that bright gold shield. No promotion, either past or future, is apt to be so well appreciated. McCann, McCauley, McCormack, McCullough, McElroy, McGrew, McKillops, McLean, McManigell — all the yearling Mc ' s and Matsumoto ' s were wearing them, bound to the Class of 1958. So early September found us drawing our second full issue of books: English, physics, chemistry, French, graphics, math, and tactics. Another year of blackboard tights and green pencils. How many times have we heard: " Well, before we get down to the business at hand, let ' s see if we know the names— hmmmm, Bailey? Bellows? Conner? Willis? Wentworth? Tier- ney? Stanton? Geipel? Tirre? Tonilinson? Toney? Trabert? Levasseur? Smith? Is that correct? " The year passed quickly: we won our B-Robes from the navals, learned the comforts of the brown boy, fought the T.D. tooth and nail, introduced ourselves to the various ac- tivities, counted our days. etc. What a thrill it was when we broke 1000. In between it all we managed to study some, drag, take a few trips, managed to squeeze in Christmas and Spring leaves. It was pleasant with a positive attitude, and impossible with a negative attitude. . . . In our turn, we added such names as these to the athletic honor rolls: Barta. Bishop. Bourland, Bradley, Byrne, Cabell, Carpenter, Chapman, DeJardin, Degen, Fagg, Gardner. George, Goodenough, Goodman, Hankee, Harvey, Hettinger, Huff, Kernan, Kirk, Loffert, Moentmann, Morrison, O Quinn, Ordway, Puff, Rodenberg, Shepherd, Slater, Stilson, and on and on. Regardless of those we mention, whether on Corps Squad or not, all of ' 58 participated in one way or another either pulling or playing.

June of fit ' ty-six passed, and the tenth of that month found the Navy blessed with our presence. The immortal Trip had begun, the class " standing to " leaving the New York har- bor. This was our " West Point Appreciation " tour aboard the Tarawa. Can we ever forget the air show and the naval firing demonstration. Could we ever look at another C.I.C. in the radar scope, or deny that the boilers and assorted pipes were fascinating? Of course not! Norfolk. Visits to subs and destroyers. A short round with Naval Air. A short visit with Norfolk women and Vir- ginia Beaches. Little Creek and its quonset huts. The humid weather. The air conditioned theater. The biggest training aid in the Navy on amphibious operations. Bell bottom trousers and coats of Navy Blue. . . . the navy All jirl.orne ailor r .ill he.-.mu- .

The last leg of our journey was the return to West Point, and another hasty farewell to classmates departing on leave. Ballard, Barker, and Barnes to one part of the country; Clewell, Cockle and Collett to another. L fort belvoir and monmouth Then we again settled down to academics, perhaps the most interesting and challenging up to this time: the intro- duction of Social Sciences, Electricity, Solids, Fluids, and again, tactics. We added a second stripe to our dresscoats and switched to a gray shield. A few of us took on the corporal stripes, and Fm certain grew heavily responsible. . . . A few Tacs left, a few Ps left, even a few of us left, but most of last year ' s roommates could still be seen around the companies. Shedd, Sharon, Wyatt and Worsham, Wright and Wilson, Umbaugh, Van Fleet and Tuttle, ShuU, Soper and Stone. Getting to be old-timers, now on logging our third year.

Yes, the Goats beat the Engin- eers. The rain, mud, and pitching arm of Bill Shepherd did most of the work in defeating the Engineers. The weather didn ' t favor passing, but the Goats, too stubborn to change their plans, actually outsmarted the Engineers by taking to the air. The Goats received the kick-off and Fred Goodenough returned it to the Goats " 29. As soon as Bill Shepherd got his hands on the pigskin he started pitching. First to John Tierney for 18 and then after a yard on the ground by Nels Conner. " Shep " chucked one to Ken Lohr for a 52 yard touchdown. Bill Ganey made it 7-0. Ron Short tried his best to put the Engineers back in the game by running the legs off Joe Keyes, Lon Spurlock. and P. C. Hutton. The mud slowed their attack, but they continued to stick to the ground. Then came their break. The Goats fumbled on their 14 and Don Forney recovered for the Engineers. Joe Keyes ran two fast ones, and Lon Spurlock scored on the next play. A missed extra point left the score 7-6. Tom Sands put the Engineers on the march again in the second period. Tom then changed tactics and tried to pass one by the Goats. Bill Ganey intercepted and returned the ball 47 yards for another score. Bill Fagg and Fred Seller dumped Bill Sheppherd, break- ing up the extra point attempt. This made the score 1 3-6 where it remained for the rest of the game.

Following the ring presentation in the afternoon, the well decorated Washington Hall provided a gracious setting for the Ring Hop. Sitting by company. The best girl present. A fine meal. Good music. Perhaps a car parked in the area (sur- rounded by other cars and not at all opportune for a hasty retreat). Of course, a good deal of time was spent in the tra- dition of passing under the large ring. A picture or two. A polite observance of another ' s ring displayed for admiring glances.

ACAOeMiCS 1 ' ' t ; ,„ , i ' kf0 ' ' -ywjiffjv " A grade a day in every subject, " is the cadet ' s simplest way of describing the academic system under which he lives for four years. This proven technique of teaching was installed during Colonel Sylvanus Thayer ' s tour as Superintendent and has endured unchanged since that time. For this innovation and for his devotion to duty. Colonel Thayer has earned the title " Father of the Military Academy. " The philosophy which guided him throughout his devoted and admirable career can best be described in his own words: " I HAD A SOLEMN DUTY TO PERFORM AND WAS DETERMINED TO PERFORM IT WHATEVER WERE THE PER- SONAL CONSEQUENCES TO MYSELF.

From the initial shock of our first day at the boards some of us never did quite recover, and to these, the color green will forever hold a certain indescribable repugnance. To some, the " front board " was eagerly anticipated as an opportunity to demonstrate their mastery of the science, while to others, it merely corroborated the suspicion of another " D " day. Algebra, Trigonometry. S olid and Analytic Geometries were the stepping stones upon which we increased our knowl- edge, and from there we were led into the hitherto unfamiliar realm of the Calculus. Aided by the perennial STM ' s and guided by the inevitable WPR ' s. which seemed to recur only too often, the intricacies of the derivative, the integral, and the differential equation were soon revealed. But whether it be in the struggle for more tenths in the first section, or in the struggle for survival in the last section, the most vivid memory will be the shattered expression on the face of the owner of a shattered slide-rule.

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH Valiantly, the Department of English waged a ceaseless campaign to endow " 58 with an appreciation of letters and the arts. That first theme and the trip up the river with Kurtz were indicative of things to come. If a busy Plebe is a happy Plebe, many a cadet owes much to the English Department. After a brief respite, the more sophisticated Yearling was permitted to peruse the efTorts of the world ' s greatest authors. Many a water-logged Yearling was dredged from the murky bowels of the ill-fated Pequod, still clutching his last soggy tenth. " " Symbor " become a dirty word. With this impressive background, only a thorough indoctrination in the three principles of Ingsoc and an unshakable faith in Big Brother were lacking to produce the complete Second Lieutenant, both of which were provided by the First Class course. 1st Roiv: Lt.

It is thus fitting that West Point has provided us with a basic foundation in one of five major foreign languages. Spanish. Portuguese, Russian, French, or German. We were taught in the most practical manner, that is, we were taught primarily to speak the language, not just to read it. Certainly there were those of us who felt we learned less than others, but what is important is that we did gain a basic knowledge of the language we studied. Memories of language class from plebe and yearling years that will linger with us forever might include some of these: The long practiced and rehearsed short speeches, resumes, freie reden, discursos, exposes, or what- ever you called them. The endless memorizing of vocabulary lists. Verbs, verbs, and more verbs. Grammar rules with their countless exceptions. The fluency tests. Those of us who hope to continue our study of the language we chose, can be sure that the Department of Foreign Languages has given us a large, firm foundation on which to build.

PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY Although it has been two long years since the Class of 1958 toiled its way through the clutches of the Department of Physics and Chemistry, the memories of these courses are still fresh in our minds, as are many of the Laboratory sights and smells. Classroom time was enlivened by demonstra- tions and the omnipresent " writ. " The mysteries of the universe were dis- covered, confused, explained, and retained — sometimes. In laboratories we experimented with the theories discussed in our section rooms. Somehow we always managed to prove that the statements of Newton and Avogadro were false. Nevertheless, we emerged from the year with a clearer under- standing and a better appreciation of the earth and its phenomena, and with several sets of fatigues air-conditioned by acid from Chemistry laboratories. 11 Front Roiv: (Left to Rii:hi) M;iji r RT Clark, Jr., Major DG MacWilliams.

A wrong figure in the sixth decimal place made the solution to a twenty minute problem completely wrong. Drafting lines would be checked by the unyielding overlay. The time spent in sharpening a broken pencil would cost many tenths because of the stress placed in speed as well as accuracy. Not completely theoretical, the Department conducted a few outdoor exercises in the spring and fall. Hov refreshing and relaxing it was to reconnoiter and to map Observatory Hilll We also came to recognize the formidable location of Fort Putnam if we had not already done so with our drags. Each one of us gained a full appre- ciation for the vast amount of information stored on maps and blueprints, giving the commander who can understand how to interpret them a great advantage. m n Lt.

We discovered that it didn ' t take 16,000 tons of coal to heat that little old Infantry building, after all. Not all of our time was taken up by the Fluids Department though; they shared us with the Department of Solids. Here we found that stresses and strains were not only to be found in structures, but also that this course could cause a great deal of mental stress and nervous strain. Going to our " Elastic Limit " , we found that by Hooke, or by Crook, we managed to overcome this obstacle. But, nevertheless, the principles of mechanics will not soon be forgotten after such a compre- hensive course. Front Roiv: (Lejt to Right) Capt. EC Whitehead.

During the year however, the department took on a more dignified air by becoming the Department of Electrical Engineering. In the beginning we probed the mysteries of circuits and power. Seeing is believing, and it took a long time to convince the skeptical goats that electrons were really running through all those wires. During the last part of the year we struggled with nuclear physics and electronics. When we were finally finished the department had explained away all of the mysteries and we actually believed it all. In this day of modern living and modern warfare, a knowledge of the fundamentals of electricity is a tool which will be used by all of us. The Class of Fifty-Eight is deeply indebted to Colonel Bartlett and his instructors for doing such a fine job in giving to us this knowledge of electrical engineering. Front Row: (Left to Right) Lt.

This department has generally attempted to teach us about man ' s relations with other men and with his environment, while confining their teaching mainly to the fields of history and geography during the second class year and economics and political science during the first class year. Most of us complained steadily about the long reading assignments and about the monographs which we always put off until the last moment. Putting aside these complaints however, we all realize that a knowledge of the major problems of our day is a must for a young officer. Certainly the Department of Social Sciences has done a fine job in giving us this knowledge, and it will be appreciated by the Class of Fifty-Eight for many years to come.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW Law class provided for many of us some of the most interesting iiours spent at the academy. Here we learned just exactly what " the book " said we could and could not do. We studied how the Constitution affects our daily lives as officers in the military service of the United States. V e were told time and time again, on an informal level, what would be expected of us as junior officers serving on court-martials, or acting as claims officers. The full meaning of such power-packed words as " intent, homicide, negligence, reasonable man, " and so on, was driven home to each of us by the time the end of the course rolled around. Although the Department of Law did not qualify us to become lawyers, it did give us information which is essential to every officer ' s store of knowledge. II Mi. All of us will always be thankful to the Ordnance Department. They made us learn not to rely on our books for information, but to keep most of the wealth of material in our heads. Most of us didn ' t think we could do it — and we were right. But we didn ' t rely on our books; we couldn ' t, some of the answers weren ' t there. However, there were only a few of this type question on the writs, usually only one per writ, worth 1.8 out of 3.0. After Armament and Engineering Materials we all eagerly looked forward to Auto- motives, especially those who were to take it before the Automobile Show. The car dealers couldn ' t fool us with all our knowledge and inside informa- tion. But somehow involutes, efficiency curves, and the like just did not influence us much in our decisions, nor did they impress the car dealers, who kept interrupting with " and of course you need stone shields. . . . " But that is all in the past. Now in the future as new Second Lieutenants we can be thankful to the Ordnance Department for better preparing us to take over any job concerning Ordnance material.

MILITARY ART AND ENGINEERING First Class year brought with it our most interesting course — Mihtary Art. We followed all the great military men through History, and discussed their mistakes to come up with " The Approved Solution. " refought the War Between the States, and found the value of strengthening the right. One of the first things we learned of was the Battle of Annihilation. Realizing what this meant, we had to fight to stave off an envelopment by the Engineering Department. Again facing stresses and strains, we had the added burdens of moment distribution and influence lines thrown at us. Again we managed to win out, and come up with the startling discovery that " Old Bailey " " isn " t a court- house in London, but a Bridge. ' Uf lo (letemiine an indeterminate structure.

We learned that the Medical Corps is not just a dispensary of APCs but a friend in need whose knowledge and experience will serve us well when we are faced with troop medical problems. We may not be able to tell a cold from cholera but we know where to turn to find out. We heard new concepts and learned the medical significance of new innovations in warfare. Due to the increased probability of mass casualties on the battlefield, emphasis was placed on the medical responsibilities of the unit commander. The individual is very important in the American Army and accordingly the health of each soldier is of vital concern to the commander. What we learned about such things as division- hours, roentgens, and psychological breakdown has given us a better appre- ciation of our forthcoming problems and responsibilities as officers.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION Blood! Blood! Blood! sUJi Physical Education was actually the only office which managed to squeeze maximum time out of minimum allotment. To qualify for daily attendance, it was first necessary to conquer a highly competitive sprint from first hour class. Mindful of a sportsmanship attitude, we received a second chance to warm up for the coming attractions of boxing, apparatus, swimming, and wrestling by participating in the daily dozen. " Bridge up " became the keynote in wrestling circles while boxing fans sweated out a round ending bell that never seemed to ring. To obtain a better perspective of " the tank " we climbed to the rafters to engage in a pre- mature airborne operation BIG SPLASH. All this minus parachute and diving equipment. Apparatus offered interesting challenges which ranged from a very long 30 foot rope to adjustable " p " bars 1 inch wider than any man ' s shoulders. Spring brought the sluff sports of tennis and golf with yearling year just around the corner. Our walking stripe had entitled us to engage in the gentlemanly sports, i.e. less input for more output. Cow year we tried our hand at coaching. Also gave what the PE department called a " few exercises. " It turned out to be quite a liberal definition of few. And how many push-ups can you do? We answered that question twice as first classmen. Grunt and groan became a hit over night on PF days. Muck was the word, the big word. And thus it ended. We came, we saw, and we conquered.

We soon discovered we were up against a section of the Tactics Department with a slightly different twist. Here we were answering the same questions of past years with one exception. The answers had been changed. You can only win at this game by doing one thing. That is to fight fire with fire. It took psychology. As second classmen it looked like our time for revenge had arrived. We switched sides of the table and took ofl[ with Military Instructor Train- ing. Much to our dismay the critique came after and not before lessons, speeches and lectures. Training aids and " always " became synonymous. Weather and terrain became motivating factors on classmate critique sheets as we drove trucks, threw grenades, and slid down cliffs under varying conditions. Then there were the 2 " who abandoned ship above the varsity pool. All in all it was a small price to pay for knowledge and a practical experience. We had laid the ground work for a future day when we would be called upon not only to solve but to lead as well. The briefing was over. We were going out to play the game for real.

" General Douglas MacArthur 139 FOOTBALL arm 42 nebraska Army began its 1957 season by defeating Nebraska 42-0. The Black Knights had complete control of the situation from the start as evidenced by using just seven plays to move the 45 yards necessary to score their first touchdown. The blocking and tackling of the line, led by Jim Kernan and Stan Slater, was fast and powerful. The Army backs ripped and raced through the Nebraska defenses. Outstanding performers were Bin Barta, Harry Walters, and Bob Anderson. Quarterback Dave Bourland not only did a superb job of leading the Rabble attack, but also broke into the scoring column by evading two tacklers while going eleven yards to score the fifth touchdown. The Army team scored four of the first five times which it had possession of the ball. The first three were drives of 45 yards. 53 yards, and 64 yards, and the fourth on a 15 yard pass from Bourland to Graf. Nebraska threatened only once when, after recovering an Army fumble on the Cadet twelve yard line. Benny Dillard raced over to score only to have the touchdown called back because of a penalty. The Army line held the remaining three downs and then took over to stage another touchdown drive. " It looks like Army has the mules. " Arch Murray. Y.

The Nittany Lions hadn ' t beaten the Army Team since the turn of. the century and their fierce desire to win kept the Rabble ofT bal- ance for the first half. When Army returned to the field after the half, they were down by one touchdown. The game, how- ever, was quickly broken wide open by the smashing Army backfield. The offensive moved Army 71 yards in 9 plays, 66 yards in 9 plays, and finally 40 yards in 8 plays— three quick touchdowns by the brilliant Army eleven in the space of six minutes. The Army line then clamped down on the Lions allowing them only one first down during the entire third period. Bin Barta. Harry Walters, and Pete Dawkins were the outstanding players of the contest. Bob Anderson had been injured in the first half and forced to retire for the remainder of the game. Several Bourland to Graf passes added 91 yards to the Cadet ofTensive which netted 397 yards in all. The game ended at 27 to 1 3 for Army ' s fifth straight win over Penn State in the post-war series. 143 : »jiSk The 12th of October renewed one of football ' s most famous and hotly contested rivalries. Colonel Blaik brought to Municipal Stadium, Philadelphia, one of the finest Army teams of the past ten years. Three minutes after Army had received the kick-ofT, Bob Anderson, Army ' s sensational soph- omore, ran 81 yards for a touchdown and the first score of the game. Notre Dame scored a few minutes later and the ball game was deadlocked at the half. The game opened up during the second half with Anderson and Dawkins each scoring a touchdown. The score was then 21 to 7. However, Notre Dame came back with 2 more tallies, but missed the conversion attempt on the last touchdown. This gave Army what looked like a big one point lead. But with six minutes remaining in the game, Monty Stickles kicked a 32 yard field goal to give Notre Dame the necessary margin for the victory, 23-21. Army ' s first line performed brilliantly throughout the game but the Rabble lacked the depth which Notre Dame possessed. notredame23 The Rabble had not forgotten the defeat Pitt had handed them last year. Four minutes after the Ivick-off, Pete Dawkins recovered an Army punt, after it had been touched by a Pitt player, and Bob Anderson quickly smashed across for Army ' s first tally. Later in the second period the Panthers evened the score at 6 to 6. The play in the second half, however, was com- pletely dominated by Army. Quarterback Dave Bourland re- peatedly sent Harry Walters and Bin Barta smashing through Pitt ' s forward wall. With the aid of Jim Kernan, Bob Novag- natz and Stan Slater, Army commenced an 83 yard drive with Harry Walters crashing over the goal line for Army ' s second touchdown. The Rabble scored twice more with the aid of two intercepted passes by Anderson, a 30 yard pass to Pete Dawkins, and a field goal by Monk HilHard. Stan Slater stopped a last minute Pitt threat when he intercepted a pass. Bob Ander- son scored once more and insured Army ' s 29-13 victory. Bill 11 allare. A ' . 1 .

In Michie Stadium, before a crowd of 25,000, which in- cluded President and Mrs. Eisenhower, the Black Knights swamped Colgate 53 to 7. Colonel Blaik usually worries when an important personage such as the President attends the foot- ball games, due to the fact that Army always seems to have a bad day. In last year ' s Colgate game, the highest scoring one in Army history, it will be recalled that Prince Ranier and Princess Grace were present. This year, however, the Army team, gaining almost at will, rolled up a staggering total of 32 first downs and 578 yards from scrimmage. Army ' s back- field consisted of Dawkins, Anderson, Bourland, and Barta who matched each other in their brilliance of play. They scored five of the Cadet touchdowns in less than 40 minutes of playing time. The second and third teams also saw action with tackle Ed Bagdonas breaking into the scoring column by blocking a Colgate punt late in the third quarter, and then racing fifteen yards to score. Colgate was willing and undaunted throughout the game, but could not stop the Army power .

Grosscup had to wait his turn as Anderson scored 2 quick touchdowns to put Army ahead 13-0. The next time Grosscup got his hands on the ball, he threw 2 passes for 42 yards. On the next play. Utah had its first tally. In the second quarter, Grosscup " s passes paved the way for another Ute touchdown, but Army came right back with Dave Bourland bootlegging the final 8 yards to put Army ahead. The score at halftime was Army 19. Utah 14. In the final stages of the 3rd quarter. Anderson cut through the middle for 54 yards and another touchdown. In the fourth period both teams scored twice. Anderson passed to Bill Graf in the end zone for the Big Rabble ' s first trip across the goal line in the 4th quarter, and Bourland ended the scoring for Army by passing 23 yards to Dawkins in the end zone.

Rain fell for most of the game, turning the field into a near lake. Army brought a great team to Municipal Stadium. The backfield, which was comprised of Bourland, Barta. Dawkins. and Anderson, had proven to be very versatile and strong. These men, using Army ' s strong line to an advantage, had made the end sweep Army ' s most potent play of the season. Navy, like Army, had had a great season, being ranked near the top in the nation in both de- fense and offense. Army won the toss and elected to defend the north goal. After an exchange of punts. Navy ' s Oldham scored the first touchdown of the game and at the end of the 1st quarter the score was Navy 7, Army 0. In the second quar- ter Army moved to Navy ' s 10 before losing the ball on a fumble. The rest of the quarter remained even with neither team moving deep into the other ' s territory. While the rain fell incessantly during the first 3 quarters the two teams had battled to a 7-0 score in favor of Navy. In the fourth quarter Navy added another touchdown, and the final score was 14 to 0. The Big Rabble fought hard all game, but Navy ' s depth was too great to be contained on this drab day. 150 LB. FOOTBALL Army ' s lightweight legions opened their first season in nilercollegiate competition with a 54-0 rout over Columbia and continued to dominate the Eastern Intercollegiate League, bringing home the champion ' s cup and ending Navy ' s long-standing supremacy in the 11 -year-old league. It was a new and untried aggregation that took the field against Columbia. but by the time that game had ended, another Army team had served notice that they would play for keeps. Bob Demont fired the big guns that day, scoring three times as Army unrolled a ground attack that was entirely too much for the Little Lions. Cornell came next, and in the freezing rain, the Army slogged its way to a 48-0 victory, with Jude Thiebert scoring twice to lead the attack. Then, before President Eisenhower and 13.500 spectators in Navy ' s Thompson Stadium. Ralph Wensinger scored on a quarterback sneak in the closing minutes to end Navy ' s reign in the league. 7-0. Back home. Pennsylvania took a 46-6 drubbing; and then a stubborn Princeton team came back with some sharp last half passing to gain a 21-21 tie. The last game, at Rutgers, decided the championship, as the little Rabble handed out an authoritative 34-14 pasting. Captain and center Brad Johnson sparked an aggressive line, and quarterbacks Ralph Wensinger and Dave Luedtke directed an able fleet of backs to lead this newest Army team to a fine opening seaso n.

At first glance, an overall season record of four wins against six losses appears unimpressive. A further perusal of the facts behind the losses which the soccer team incurred will raise the question, how did they manage to win as many as four? The answer to this lies largely in the determined leadership, capably and thoroughly furnished by Bob Puff, our captain. Illustrations of his determination occurred throughout the season. Against Ithaca, he received a kidney injury which threatened his being commissioned for quite a few weeks. However, after four games had passed, all of which Bobby agonizingly watched from the bench, he began work- ing out with the squad. After finally obtaining permission to play from the Surgeon, and in spite of the warnings of the possible consequences, he played a substantial part of the last three games. Perhaps the loss of the team captain for the major part of the season would seem to be sufficient, but for the Rabble, it was just the beginning. Also lost for the season was Rudy Letona, a starting lineman, who tore .several ligaments in his knee again.st Ithaca. John Schroeder was also lost to the full- backs as a result of a broken ankle suffered in a practice session. Will Roosma was lost for the season when his knee was banged up and an operation was required. Will had pro- vided the core of the halfback line until he was injured.

Ray Baiigh t t Charley Oxreider was out for four games when he received numerous leg injuries. Finally, taped to the limit, he showed his value to the team when he played his outstanding game of the year against Brockport. " Ox " supported the defense to stave off numerous last half scoring attempts by Brockport to bring back the first soccer road win in three years by a score of 4-1 . After playing in only six games, " Ox " was selected for Honorable Mention on the All-New York team. Another starter, Les Gibbings, was lost to the team for three games. This loss of starters made room for Coach Kress to try out many combinations in order to build a winner. A predominance of firsties made up the first string. Out- standing in their contributions were Corky Henninger, who was instrumental in setting up or scoring all of our goals. Tom Carpenter was also very much in evidence in the scoring column until late in the season when he pulled a hamstring muscle which kept him out of the Navy game. Juan Villanes dismayed the opposition with his footwork all year long and as a result was selected to the Honorable Mention All-New York Team. Bill Morrison played stellar ball in every game last year at Right Wing. A replacement for him will be a big problem for next year. Hank Gardner will also leave a big hole in the fullback line. This loss combined with Charley Oxreider ' s will leave a big question mark for next year. These two formed the nucleus for the defense which was classified as the best in the East at one point in the season. The return of Hank Watson at the other fullback slot will help to relieve the problem of filling the gap left by graduating first classmen. Next year ' s team promises to be very strong all through the first string but depth will depend on the new Yearlings. Freddy " The Cat " Manzo will continue in his role as an out- standing goalie. Freddy was selected to the All-New York Second Team in the goalie ' s position. As next year ' s captain. Freddy will carry on in his assumed job of running the team from his cage and to a successful season we all hope. || 1 E: Plummer M: Greene R: Hanna Front Rou ' Left to Right): Powers J; Healy R: Wils Second Ron: Kendall D: Abraham,on J: Carrol D: Lewi J: Adams J: Cox J: Bennett Third Roic: Crowell i Coach I : Montgomery K: Fo,ter P: Rumbaugh M: Flannery E: Donalii F: Hickman G; Bauer A.

Outstanding performances were turned in by Captain Jerry Lewis. Dick Heely. Dick Green. Gene Wilson, and Dave Carroll, along with Bill Hanne, who was injured early in the season.

BASKETBALL A patient coach, two lettermen, and a crop of new year- lings faced one of the most formidable schedules in the history of Army basketball. Captain Don DeJardin and Chuck Darby together with yearlings Darryle Kouns, Joe Bobula, Jim Klosek, and Fred Kaiser formed the nucleus of the 57-58 edition of Army bas- ketball. Experience was a key factor during the season, and we found that we were lacking enough of this when we played some of the stronger teams on the schedule. As the season opened, we quite easily topped Yeshiva, U.S. Merchant Ma- rine Academy, and Lehigh. However, we met our first defeat, of the twelve we were to be dealt during the season, when Columbia nipped us by 4 points. Our yearlings showed promise as Kouns and Darby carried the load in the scoring. Klosek, Bobula, and DeJardin were the backbone of the rebounding department. Christmas Leave found the team journeying to Louisville. Kentucky to play in the Bluegrass Festival Tournament with Louisville, Seattle, and San Francisco. Ahhough we lost to both Louisville and Seattle, our team gave a good account for themselves and the Corps against two of the better teams in the Nation. After returning from Leave, the rest of the season was an up and down affair as we were hot one game and cold the next. In February, the team put on sunglasses, bought suntan oil. and flew to Florida to play Florida State and Miami. We broke even on this journey beating F.S.U. and losing to a strong Miami team. However, the " tourists " enjoyed the beautiful girls and surfriding at Miami Beach while the rest of the Corps was facing the rigors of winter and " Gloom Period. " A few weeks later, Darryle Kouns broke the Academy record for total points scored in one season by bettering the old record of 470 points set in 1954. Kouns ended the season having scored 587 points. 117 more than the old record. The rest of the season was so-so until March 1. when the highly favored Middies from Annapolis invaded the Field House to play us in the season finale. The rabble was not to be denied victory, however, as Kouns and company played as they never had before and sunk the Middies 78-68. The Corps was tense all through the game as we consistently outplayed the taller men from Canoe U. The fierce determina- tion, and the will to win which our team displayed that day will long be remembered by the Corps, as another Army team, rated as the underdog, came through and BEAT NAVY.

At the beginning of the season it was almost too much to hope that the 1958 Hockey Team could equal the 1957 team ' s record of 14 wins and 4 loses. The two reasons for thinking in this vein were: 1 ) The " 57 team had broken every academy scoring record while winning more games than any previous Army hockey team; and 2) the ' 58 team faced the roughest schedule ever presented an Army Club. However. by the first of February the team was already boasting an 8-1-1 record. In the first week of February, Army lost to Boston University, but beat Boston College for the first time in Army ' s history. And with Jack Riley, who had been voted Coach of the Year for 1957, more than ably guiding the team. Army concluded another record shattering season by winning five of their last six games. Mik,- Han.- . ..ntrolling the pu. k i Skip Hittinger broke the record for points scored in a career, with 107. while Mike Harvey followed not too far behind. Larry Asbury and team Captain Lenny McCormack. who missed more than half the season due to an injury, also contributed greatly toward making the ' 58 season such a success. Ted Crowley matched Skip point for point during the season, both getting 53 points. Pete Dawkins was one of the East ' s leading scorers for defensemen. while Captain elect Larry Palmer proved he was one of the nation ' s top goal tenders.

M. C. pointed to be a real thriller as each side boasted one of the strongest teams in their school ' s history. From the start, the game was a rough and tough exhibition of power, speed, and stamina; with 16 penal- ties being called. At the start the defense looked strong, but late in the first period Pete Dawkins slapped a rebound, from a shot by Larry Asbury, past the R. M. C. goalie. A minute later R. M. C. received a penalty and the picture looked even brighter for Army. But a loose puck and a fast Canadian sud- denly made it 1-1. Early in the second period Ted Crowley picked up the puck in center ice and outskated the R. M. C. defensemen to give Army a 2-1 lead. Again the defenses tight- ened and no more scoring occurred until late in the second period when Jack Farrell slipped one into the nets, followed two minutes later by Ted Crowley ' s second goal. The final goal was scored by Len McCormack, and it made the score 5-1 for West Point. The score, however, was not completely indicative of the tenseness of the game, as the Canadians, who had faster skaters, maintained a lot of pressure on the Army defense. However. Larry Palmer ' s brilliant play in the goal thwarted several of the R. M. C. scoring attempts. To the victor go the spoils.

In all of his twenty-seven years of coaching here, Mr. Maloney has agreed, that this team is the best he has ever coached. This great success can be attributed to him. Captain O ' Quinn, and the team as a whole. It was the team sp irit and unity which were responsible for this undefeated season. The team did have individual performers who stood out above the rest, but the most important factor in the successful season was the all- around depth which it possessed.

The most important victory of the season was the one over Penn State. Both teams entered this meet undefeated and outcome was to decide the winner of the Eastern Inter- collegiate Trophy. Army put forth a great team effort led by O ' Quinn who performed exceptionally well on the Parallel Bars and Side Horse. Army won 50 V2 to 451 2 and clinched the championship trophy. Out of eighteen routines, seventeen were completed. At the end of the season. Army traveled to Penn State to compete in the Individual Eastern Champion- ships. It was here that O ' Quinn won the Eastern title on the Parallel Bars with one of his best precision performances. He also won second place on the Side Horse and Degen took second in the Rope Climb. Army ' s depth was very apparent at this meet since almost all of the individual performers who entered the competition, qualified for the finals. This was a very fitting climax for one of Army ' s best gymnastics teams. i • » ♦ - cl ' ' .f •r Ar5 , ' ,4ii «:♦, 11 ' : d iwiIk iddeaiivl itkdb) ol) Uegan on ihe horizontal bar.

Five academy records fell as the team powered its way to a won 13, lost 2, record. With Don Kissinger switching from the backstroke to freestyle, and the excellent showing of yearlings Otstott. Mont- gomery, and Bare, the Army mermen had the balance to give them a winner in every event. The medley relay team, comprised of Pat Kirk. Chuck Otstott, Tom Robinson, and Don Kissinger, became the first medley relay quartet in cadet history to break the 4 minute mark. Their time of 3:59.3 gave them an important 7 points against Navy. The 400 yard freestyle relay record was also broken as Pete Bare. Stan Bacon, Don Kissinger, and Gordon Goodman turned in top notch performances against Columbia to give them a time of 3:31.2. The squad seemed to rise to a peak during the last two weeks of the season. Led by Co-Captain Gordon Goodman ' s double win in the 220 and 440 yard freestyle races, the team swamped the Navy by a 48-38 margin. A week later the team set 3 academy and 7 pool records while breezing past Lehigh at Lehigh. The academy records were set by Co-Captain Pat Kirk with a time of 2:11.5 in the 200 yard backstroke, Gordon Goodman with a time of 4:52.1 in the 440 yard freestyle, and Chuck Otstott in the 200 yard breaststrokc with a time of 2:33.2.

They were victorious in seven out of ten meets and climaxed the year with a win over Navy. Franklin Marshall provided the opposition as Army opened its season. The Black Knights made a good first im- pression as they defeated the Pennsylvania school handily. Next in line was Columbia and when the smoke of battle cleared Army had won every match. Jerry Weisenseel. Ken Phill ips, Tex Lenart, and Bill Fagg pinned their opponents. The Cadets had little trouble in their first match away from home as they downed Yale. Ithaca College was Army ' s fourth straight victim. Army and Pittsburgh, both unbeaten, met the following week at West Point. Pitt was too strong, and Army saw its hopes for an undefeated season die. The Black Knights got back on the winning trail in their next meet with Rutgers. Syracuse and Lehigh each defeated the Cadets in the next two meets, but the Army team rallied to post an impressive victory over Springfield in preparation for Navy. Bill Fagg pinned the Springheld heavyweight. Tex Lenart " s pinning of his op- ponent was the highlight of the final meet as the varsity ended their season by drubbing Navy, 20-8. Jud Ellis, Jim Hankee, Ken Phillips (captain), Tex Len- art. George Robertson, and Bill Fagg have all wrestled their last match for West Point, of these only Jim Hankee had wrestled prior to entering West Point. Along with the underclass mem- bers of the team these six men made this a wrestling season to remember. Jim Hankee upsets the man from Yale and Ellis against Navy. The Squash Team this year proved the fact that practice and spirit, and above all. the will to win can make a winning team. Under the able leadership of Coach Nordlie and team Captain Don Williams, the team picked up steam and rolled to a winning season, topped by a victory over our archrival, and the 1957 National Squash Champions, Navy. Don Williams stated that this year ' s team admittedly was not the best that West Point has ever had; due to a lack of experience, especially in match play. But the cadets profited by several early season losses, and they pulled together, worked as a team, and eventually came through with not only a win- ning record, but also, the greatest of all. a victory over the Middies.

RIFLE The Rifle Team started the season off with an excellent record to maintain, and maintain it they did. 1958 was the first year in which M Sgt. O. L. Gallman would have avail- able a team which he had coached all four years, and one with the greatest potential the Military Academy has ever had. During the season the team met and defeated all comers and topped off the season with a very close and very tense win over NAVY to make it the first undefeated season in several years, and the first for a USMA team coached by M Sgt. Gall- man. An undefeated season was not the only accomplishment during the year. Ably led by team Captain Howard Jones and well supported by the second class a new Academy Record of 1456x1500 was placed on the score board to better the old mark by eight points. With this as a record and the future potential available in the team this was a season which could be only a start toward future accomplishments, but a start which places a goal to be aimed at. -«-Tr- fr-i-ili-f Front Row (Left to Right): Sgt H L Brenner; Oberg R (Captain I; Moore R; Capt J V Dunham; Secord Row: Drake E; Canant R; Trainor P; Carr B; Barr A; Powell H; Nelson O R; Huhard J; Smith J; Roth R; Biiihly W; Raign P. PISTOL The Army Pistol team, led by Captain Dick Oberg. completed a very successful season. Losing only to the United States Coast Guard Academy, the sharpshooters came back to defeat Navy. In defeating Navy, the cadets established a new Academy record with a score of 1401. The record shows the excellent guidance and coaching done by M Sgt. Joe Benner and the assistance of Captain JV Dunham. The squad has five outstanding shooters in Cadets P. Hutton. B. Carr, D. Oberg, J. Hubard, and A. Baar. Carr, Hutton, and Hubard have one leg each on the United States Army Distinguished Pistol Badge. Three legs are necessary to win the honor, a leg being won in Army Area and National pistol matches placing in the first five per cent. ■; OPP.

Ten lettermen are on hand this Spring as Eric " Red " Tipton taices over the reins as head Baseball Coach. Coach Tipton already has one Championship team to his credit at West Point as he guided the 150-lb. football team to an un- defeated season last fall. Among his many qualifications as a baseball coach are his five years of Major League experience — four with the Cincinnati Reds and one with the Philadelphia Athletics. Coach Tipton has every reason to be optimistic for the coming season. He has experience at every position with his pitching staff as the only big question mark. He has only one letterman, Jon Rindfleish, on the staff. Tipton is quick to point out that a lot depends on the development of Gerry Deroma and Frank Partlow up from last year ' s Plebe team. Another outstanding prospect, Bob Anderson, may be lost because of Spring football practice. Others working for a spot on the staff include Dan Yarr. Len McCormack, Bob Wheeeler, and Bob Gilliam. Gene Fisher goes up after BASEBALL The hitting should be very strong led by the capable captain Nels Conners and Fred Franks both of whom hit well over .300 in the " 57 season. Other Lettermen who will bolster the batting attack are Bob Durkin. Chuck Darby, Alex Grant, Barry Haight, Don DeJardin, Bob Kirtley, and Rod Ordway. On March 29th, the Big Rabble open their regular season against Wesleyan. Included in the schedule is the annual ex- hibition game with the New York Giants on May 26th. All in all. it looks like a vastly improved ball club with a good chance to improve last year ' s 3rd place standing in the Eastern League and especially to make it a rough year for the boys from Crabtown.

Betts, team captain, performed very well, running in the mile relay team and com- ing up in the 60 yard dash. Byrne, last year ' s high point man for the Class of 1958, did a sparkling job. He broke the 600 yard run record set at 1:12.5 by Hammack in 1945 running a 1:12.3 against St. John ' s University. Three weeks later Byrne cut another tenth of a second off the time. Then against Penn State he lowered the record to 1:11 .9. Still other flashing performances were given. The two-mile relay team, Salter, Gray, Byrne, and Hanne, set a new record of 7:48.2 in the meet with Princeton University. Madigan and Doucette in the broad jump, Hruby and Prunitsch in the pole vault. and Lewis in the mile all worked outstandingly.

Though the speedy 1957 Army Lacrosse team lacked depth, it produced one All-American and strong competition for all opposition throughout the season. It verged on great- ness several times but fell short. Going into the third quarter against the National Champions, Johns Hopkins University. Army was leading but slowly dropped behind as the closing minutes drew near. The team met defeat against Navy in the same manner. It was obvious that Army ' s lack of depth was the serious hindrance which caused defeat in several games. Army suffered the setback of having to start from scratch with its team. Experienced players were few and far between making it necessary to spend valuable time working on basic fundamentals. Army had the best 1957 defense team in the nation. However, the defensive players were graduated last June, and this year the team is beginning with a new defense, and this may possibly be the team ' s weakest point. With Miser and Fertig, who both broke Plebe scoring records, on the attack. Army may have a surprisingly strong attack. LACROSSE Looking for : Both the Academy and the Lacrosse team suffered a great loss last year when Coach F. Morris Touchstone passed away. He was devoted to his work and team, and will always be re- membered as one of the " Greats. " " Ace " Adams will be stepping in as coach of the 1958 team. The responsibility will be big. but with such men as West Point has, who possess speed, initiative, and good sportsmanship, the job can be done. Hopes for a successful season are running high. The team will lack the top-notch 1957 defense but it will have more depth and an improved mid-iield. The " C " squad had an undefeated season and it is very likely that many " C " squaders will find their names on the strong 1958 " A " Squad, which in our opinion possesses the capabilities of being " The Team " to beat. 192 - 4.,. f H ' , V f Johnny Evans 1 12 1 pulls one i Evans ( 12 shoots lor th( 193 GOLF ( Left to Riithl ) : Capt Simmons; Vooihees T; Shedd H; Abernathy W; Stone C; Browne L; Soper J; Mace A; Parks W; Groves R; Browne (Coach). The prospects for the golf team this year are the best Coach Brown has had in his six years of coaching here. Re- turning to the squad are five first class lettermen: Parks, Soper. Mace, Groves, and Shedd who have been responsible for beating Navy two years straight. Completing the seven man squad will probably be the two third classmen, Edelstein and White. The competition for starting births should be keen, however, because of the many strong reserve players which include Abernathy and Daniel. The team is well rounded out and possesses great depth. With this great potential, the golf team should have the best season in years. Captain Bill Parks.

Working with the Class Committee, the Class Officers have directed class activities at West Point and on our summer trips. Among the more difficult tasks encountered by the officers was that of assisting in the selection of the Queen of the Ball at our Fort Benning hop where Bradshaw climaxed the ceremony with the appropriate gesture. The past four years were but a glance at what lies ahead after Graduation. When " 58 is car- ried across the seven seas, it will be the function of this group to maintain the cohesion and unity of the Class. This will be accomplished through meetings, reunions, and keeping the class informed in all matters of class interest. 195 Sitting: (Left to Right) Vi . i s, WA; Smith. Tk; Corcoran.

The elected guardians of the Corps " Honor Code and Honor System, aware that they would be shouldering the responsibility for the most prized possession of all West Pointers, began preparing for the job as Second Classmen when they served as Honor Representatives on the second Class trip and later as they received the orientations from the 1957 Honor Committee. Since that time, they have spent long hours in Orientation. Interpretation of Academic and Tactical department Regulations which concerned Honor, and in guarding against practices which would be inconsistent with the Honor Code. Their job of maintaining and perpetuat- ing the High standards of Honor which have become world famous as a part of West Point began with the orientation of the Class of 1961 and will end as they prepare the new Honor committee for their job. 196 I I class committee " d.

" Of course, no thousand backs were involved, merely a representative group of thirty. It is our desire that in years to follow, we may provide a means through which our class may remain united. Years of travel and thousands of miles will separate us physically, but the bond of being a " classmate. " we hope, will never tarnish; and may in fact strengthen our relations throughout the future years.

Another simple cycle, another graduating class. We entered as civilians, we left as officers, one hand clutching a diploma, the other our first assignment. Upon our shoulders were the gold bars of our commission, and upon our hand was a golden ring. Is that the whole story? Of course not. The story is a comple.v one. full of days of hard work, days of dulled monot- ony. As such, it can ' t be told in words; but its memories, as well as its obligations, have been embodied in the ring of the class of 1958. During Plebe year, the class selected its representatives. Their mission: To design a ring suitable of being worn as a constant reminder of our great privilege. The first task was the class crest. This accomplished , our A-pins and miniatures be- gan to filter into the Corps. Two and a half years later the BALFOUR COMPANY was chosen as our ring manufac- turer, and it was a proud day when the Ring Reps finally ac- cepted our rings from the Commandant for presentation to the class. It was an even prouder moment for the committee to lean back at that evening ' s Ring Hop and feel the full satisfaction of a job well done.

I hop committee It all began with Plebe Christmas, the steady planning of the social functions of the Corps. Whether it be the class trips, the weekend hops, or the Graduation Hop, the Hop and Social Committee strived to bring new ideas into the Corps " social life. Known as " the men in the red sashes, " their job was one of great work and only nominal reward. " But hard work is its own reward, " and based on that bit of philosophy, the men of the Hop and Social Committee had more than adequate compensation. Though difficult at times, and sometimes doubted by the Corps, the planning of social schedules for summer trips and for the long academic year took a great deal of coordination. The experience of meeting a variety of people and the knowl- edge gained in social graces were valuable bonuses to us all. 199 Ed OfsJnt. 4 or,„ic E,li, AI) ERTISING STAFF l.ejl t„ Right: Stadler, GP; Shedd, HL; Ji; RH.

Since that date the memories of the work we have done on this Howitzer will long stay with us. The entire book has been planned and organize d by the Howitzer Staff, consisting of over one hundred cadets, under the supervision of the Howitzer Board. But without the assist- ance of our Ofhcers-in-Charge. Lt. Col. R. E. Kuzell and Major L. C. Ecklon, we never could have made it. And so many others, especially men of the Corps, assisted us in so many ways, and we shall be ever grateful. As for the Howitzer Board, never before has such a group united so well to accomplish the mission of organizing the yearbook.

We started off in an atmosphere of great austerity caused by recurring finan- cial difliculties, but before the year was half over Daley ' s business geniuses had lifted the burden of a " limited budget " from the editorial staff ' s back. By January we found our books sufficiently in the black to splurge on our infamous parody issue. Throughout this and the previous two years we have been aided and abetted (and sometimes even harassed) by two great officers. Major Steve Mulkey and Captain Dave Hughes, who are so sad at 58 ' s departure that they, too, are leaving the post. Our gratitude for encouragement, advice, and the benefit of their sincere interest as OIC ' s goes with them. A big event for all our 150 man staff this year was the move to our new large ofliice suite in Washington Hall. These improved facilities proved a great asset in performing the myriad of little tasks that accompany putting together a maga- zine seventeen times a year. The POINTER Board of ' 58 closes this 25th year of the magazines ' publication secure in the knowledge that we have left capable and interested Second Classmen to carry on and continuously improve the Corps ' official publication.

F. i 1 DEBATE COUNCIL The largest and most vocal of West Point ' s extra-curricu- lar activities is the Debate Council and Forum. Its six hundred members comprise over one hundred debaters from all classes, an even larger group of seminar participants, and a host of staff personnel. The Debate Council gives cadets the training and oppor- tunity to practice the art of public speech. Its activities begin early in the year, as the Council plays host to visiting debaters from all over the U.S. and Canada. As the year progresses, cadet debate teams are entered in the nation ' s foremost inter- collegiate debate tournaments. The year ' s work reaches a cli- max late in April when thirty-six teams selected from over five hundred competing colleges and universities assemble at West Point for the National Invitational Debate Tournament. The scope of the Forum is no less broad than that of the Debate Council. The Forum plays host to many discus- sion groups which analyze current United States ' problems in international relations. The zenith of the home program is the Annual Student Council on United States ' Affairs, held at the Point early each December. Over fifty colleges and universities from the U.S. and Canada send students and faculty advisors to this Council. The Forum also sends select cadets to participate in discussion groups convened at other schools. The most extensive engagement in this field is the Far West Trip, which tours the Pacific coast for ten days every Spring. Novices, amateurs, and self-styled experts in debate, public speech and just plain " chewing the fat " are thus given an opportunity to learn to perfect their art, and to represent the Military Academy in important intercollegiate activities. AND FORUM Student Conference United States Affairs The success of this year ' s Student Conference on United States affairs was a credit to those members of the Corps who participated either in administration or in actual discussions. As in the past, SCUSA afforded an opportunity for cadets to associate with civilian and military contemporaries and with people who were well qualified for their leadership in discus- sions of our national security policy. This year the Conference staff of approximately eighty cadets, guided by officers of the Department of Social Science, was host to students from sixty-three civilian colleges and service academies in the United States and Canada. The topic of discussion was " The National Security Policy of the United States, " whh emphasis on ways of peaceful change and the policies to implement them.

" r™ Many academies « scusa The Conference was opened with a welcome by the Su- perintendent of the Military Academy and a keynote address by William C. Foster. Vice President of the Ohn Mathieson Chemical Corf)oration and influential advisor to the Executive Department on international afi ' airs. The conferees were di- vided into nine roundtable groups which discussed our national security problems in each of five different geographical areas of the world. Three panel discussions were presented by highly qualified authorities in the field of national security, and the Conference was high-lighted by a banquet address by The Honorable Chester Bowles, former governor of Connecticut and U.S. Ambassador to India. Having presented their final reports, the conferees de- parted for their distant homes with a keener interest in our nation ' s affairs. The Conference had served its purpose well in introducing tomorrow ' s civilian and military leaders to the task of cooperating in an endeavor to provide for our nation ' s security.

The Bugle Notes Staff is composed of four sub-staffs: the advertising staff is responsible for securing ads for the publica- tion by direct solicitation, and secures four hundred to one thou- sand dollars worth of ads each year. The business staff handles all finances of the organization. The circulation staff takes care of distribution and of a major part of the sales. The edi- torial staff composes the book and contracts for its publication. The Bugle Notes itself, or " Plebe Bible. ' " is a compendium of the history, traditions, and outstanding landmarks of West Point, and attempts to explain all there is to know about the Military Academy. This is a monumental task, and is only accomplished by much hard work. Although not published until the end of the academic year, the first compilation is finished in December, in an attempt to foresee the many cor- rections which have to be made before the book is printed. public relations council The 1957-38 edition of the Public Relations Council may not go down in history as the most spectacular organization at West Point, but few people will take exception to the state- ment that it was certainly one of the most effective organiza- tions. Through PRC efforts, many people learned something about West Point from a cadet who otherwise might have only known it as the OTHER side in the Army-Navy game. The staff ' , headed by John Isaacson and including Jim Peck, Jack Burke, Bob Donovan, and Gerry Schurtz, was re- sponsible for the numerous trip sections that travelled to all corners of the country to speak before civic groups, high school assemblies, Boys " State, and National Guard units. The record attained by these speakers speaks well of this year " s Council. Left to Right: Isaacson. JL: Burke.

In addition one of the most appreciated functions of the group is the annual series cf supper concerts in the Dining Hall during " gloom period. " The cadet orchestra is entirely amateur with regard to its personnel, and has the mission of providing aspiring cadets the opportunity to develop the ability to play music. But far over-shadowing this is the importance of the recreation provided the group. Although the group seldom meets more often than once a week for practice it always maintains a rela- tively high proficiency, and the members of the band feel that the large numbers that turn out for the band ' s hops are mute testimonial to the regard paid to the band by the corps and their escorts. , _ a j .-.-v- ' Tr-.TIJaw innite L T« Mil « gl ee c lub As many of you already know, the Cadet Glee Club was first organized in 1928, at which time it was directed by cadets. It has grown from a membership of 25 in 1928 to 200. The latter number includes the 60 plebes who comprise the Plebe Glee Club. The plebe club is a new thing this year, and it was started to give them one more year of singing experience prior to joining the varsity club. In addition to the June Week concert and Christmas con- certs given at West Point each year, the Glee Club gives about 10 away from West Point. These concerts are obtained by in- vitation. Last year, concerts were given in West Hempstead, Scarsdale, Carnegie Hall, New York Athletic Club. Atlantic City, and on the Ed Sullivan Show. The Cadet Glee Club also made a recording with Vox Studios compiled from two differ- ent live concerts which has sold more than 5000 copies. This year ' s schedule was comprised of the following con- certs: A concert on the Ed Sullivan Show, followed by a joint concert with Vassar College at Poughkeepsie, N. Y. The Christmas Concert followed, and then on 25 January 1958, the Glee Club sang at the New York Athletic Club. Harvard University was the location for the next concert, and on 26 April the Glee Club ventured to Montclair, New Jersey, for a joint concert with Smith College. The Cadet Glee Club is an active member of the Asso- ciation of Male Choruses of the United States and of the Intercollegiate Music Council. H ts " - 1 (iPllPF ■ ,. ' ' ' " Ki l ' l: Eclu-lhaiger.

Under the able tutorship of D-2 " s Garth Payne, the Committee brought to the Corps fine gloom- period entertainment from the bright lights of Broadway, radio, and television. Such programs as the Four Freshmen, Roger Williams, Duke Ellington and his Band, and others paraded before us for our pleasure. The morale of the Corps was indeed lifted by these fine shows and their featured artists. With the responsibility of providing all varieties of enter- tainment for the Corps, the Special Programs Committee must cater to the taste of every individual. Much work must be ac- complished months in advance of even the first show — con- tracts, theatre reservations, ticket sales, balancing the books, keeping the accounts, and publicity. Therefore credit must be duly given to the able committeemen under Garth and the yearling and plebe company representatives throughout the Corps. All these people have made it possible for every one of us to enjoy the best gloom-period entertainment in years. To Garth Payne and the entire Committee goes much appre- ciation for the many Sundays of Special Programs in 1958. 1 Standing: Simpson, JD; Lawrence. AC; ; Carter, DE; Raymond, JA. iitherland. LW; Smith, DA; dialectic society Since 1816 the Dialectic Society has been one of the largest and most active extra-curricular activities of the Corps. Some of the other well known activities, such as the Debate Council and the Special Programs Committee, had their begin- ning within the Dialectic Society and later branched off as separate organizations. Even without them, however, our annual productions still manage to keep our members busy all year round. " The 100th Night Show " has become one of the most en- joyable traditions of our tradition-loaded institution. There ' s been a show every year since 1871. This year, under the guidance of Major Adams, we also presented a " 200th Night Variety Show, " featuring the talent of the Corps. The President of the 1958 Dialectic Society was Tony Smith, who, along with Dan Carter, the Vice-President, and John Devens, the Property Officer, wrote the " 100th Night Show " script. John Raymond handled the money, while Larry Sutherland took care of production, and John Simpson kept the Society ' s poopsheets in order. Here we are, up to our knees in grease paint and props, the Dialectic Society of 1958. 216 Stundini:: Captain RE Barber; Seated (isl Ron): Kraiikel. JC; I ' m. i -..,,.

The Forum, besides not charging dues, was known for its lectures by various instructors on everything ranging from the " Theory of Numbers " to such practical topics as " Prob- ability in Poker. " Of course the lectures were sometimes a bit above our level but oftener than not we learned something. And most beneficial was the fact that our interests were kept alive and stimulated in an area of study important in any branch of the service. Our highlight activity was the traditional Math Forum trip to the IBM plant in Poughkeepsie. and this year we were careful not to schedule the trip while Vasser was enjoying Spring vacation. The discovery of a 5 ' 2 inch reflecting telescope led to the origin of an Astronomy Club here at West Point. The telescope and its housing observatory were remnants of the days when astronomy was taught to all cadets as a part of their engineer- ing background. Working under the assumption that some phase of the great field of astronomy ought to be part of every meeting of the club, we have tried to have lectures, slide films, motion pictures and practical instruction in using the telescope to oc- cupy the greater portion of our time. A library has been started and a club room constructed beneath the observatory dome on the fifth floor of the East Academic Building. The generous cooperation of the Physics and the Electricity De- partments and the director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York has notably assisted in our growth. It is hoped that in these days of increased interest in space travel and popular astronomy that the Astronomy Club will fill a widening gap in the Corps " knowledge of this fascinat- ing subject. astronomy club RF; Serchak, WE. radio c lub Sinilile, LA; Morgan.

Hidden in a corner on the top floor of the 49th Division, the Cadet Radio Club operates its ham radio station and Army communications network station in an attempt to gain a working knowledge of the communications field. The club handles messages for all points on the globe while meeting and becoming acquainted, on the air, with the people from these areas. This year the club has made a step towards more freedom of operation by going " mobile " and mounting a short- wave system in one of the trucks from the motor pool. Tinker- ing with transformers, transmitters, receivers, tubes and wires makes these individuals natural " juice " hives; the only catch is that they spend so much time on their activity that they never find time for study. hi-fi club The Hi-Fi Club was formed this year to fill a vacuum formed by the increasing interest in high fidelity and the re- markable confusion which existed about the subject. The club quickly filled the gap with lectures for beginners, and seminars for experts. A workshop took form which provides much valuable experience for the members. A high fidelity demon- stration and exposition proved most interesting in addition to revealing the perfection which high fidelity can bring the listener. A unique feature of the club is its ability to absorb both the completely non-technical music-lover and the serious audio engineer — there is room for all. And if interest continues to grow at the rate it has this year we may soon have all as members. 218 nanl gpioa kedub ■Klin; icim mire Yciich ytfihey Seiited: Schaefer, JF; Hanson, R; Tomlinson, RF; Shelltiiherfi.r.

The large staff invoWed draw pleasure not only from participation, but equally from the knowledge that they are providing a real service to the Corps. Music, free from the usual commercial, can be heard every evening at " 635 on your dial, " as well as complete coverage of sports and special events at any time of day. Passing its second birthday in December, KDET con- tinued to grow both in size and operations. The Record Li- brary, with its collection of long-playing records that would be the envy of many small commercial stations, expanded to such an extent that it was moved into a room of its own. Programming highlights of the year included broadcasting the address by the Hon. Chester A. Bowles at the SCUSA Banquet, coverage of the Rev.

This, along with the fact that it ' s difficult to keep brushes and paint on your locker top. led to the formation of the Art Club. Its get-to- gethers are in the form of weekly meetings where any one of its members discusses a form of art. or a professional expert drops in and donates his advice to the beginners and the more advanced. Its studio is located in the attic of the West Aca- demic Building. Supplies can be kept here, and this gives the aspiring young artist a chance to try his hand on an easel in- stead of his desk top. Trips and art exhibits are also a function of the Club. Their motto: " While some can better than others, anyone can draw. " camera c lub The Cadet Camera Club darkroom is another place we go to get away from it all. There we make millions of pictures — things like our girls posing on top of Kissing Rock, our room- mates in the pad, and occasionally a shot of the chapel or some monument but never a picture of the tac, reveille, or area formation. We learn many things. Each of us is an expert at measuring the temperature of a container of water to the nearest degree by sticking our finger in it. .And we are quite adept at retouching the pictures of our roommate ' s girl friends to make beautiful women out of them. Thus we create the West Point of our dreams, and this is the West Point we will see when we sit down in our old age as old grads and thumb through the good old days. || 220 model club rai I road Eynon, TF; Mayers.

Due to the construction of the new First Class Club in the old Signal Corps compound the club has been forced to become inactive for the most part of the present academic year. Re- cently we have moved into a new room and have begun to reconstruct and operate our HO gauge layout. Our present layout consists of a 12 ' x 15 ' table with about 120 ' of HO track. The next jobs are to detail the layout by plastering, spreading grass and WHAT COMES NEXT?? ' . ' model airplane club Work of this year ' s Model Airplane Club has been greatly hampered by lack of adequate workshop space which was lost when reconstruction of the Riding Hall began. The club ' s main objectives have been to acquire this much needed work- shop and to provide necessary equipment and facilities for flying of model aircraft. A large amount of new equipment has been purchased with club funds and much flying is being done during good weather. Working in conjunction with the Highland Falls Model Airplane Club an invitation was extended on the club ' s be- half to the Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Model Airplane Club to visit West Point and demonstrate some of their models. Although this was the club ' s first attempt at such a show, it turned out very well with both visitors and cadets demonstrat- ing their ability with the small craft to a much interested audi- ence.

The Cadet Ordnance Club is the only club at West Point which permits Cadets to express an active interest in automo- biles. In addition to this function the study of weapons and ammunition is undertaken. Although our club is listed within the Academic section of the Extra-curricular Activities, the nature of our functions is in no way limited to academic en- deavors. Each spring we have two trip sections, one to an auto- mobile show and a second to an armory. During the academic year we present speakers and motion pictures pertaining to the afore-mentioned subjects. skeet club This year ' s skeet club turned out to be one of the best in several years, if not in the total number of wins and losses, at least in the number of trips taken. The first one to the Camp- fire Club in New York and then on to Greenwich. Connecticut, gave the team a Saturday night in the city and a chance to compete against some of the top sportsmen in New York. Next we traveled to Hartford, Connecticut, to compete against one of the top shooting clubs in the east and to enjoy a great banquet afterwards. The final trip was to Winchester-Western at New Haven where we toured the plant and fired against their crack team. All in all, it was a great season. istol club The blame for the sharp crack of pistols that interrupted the peaceful Sunday afternoons can be laid to these potential Wyatt Earps who were shooting up the country side behind Michie stadium. While searching for lost weapons, firing on Sundays, reducing any competition that dared to face us, traveling to NYC, New Haven, and Washington, and throw- ing the biggest picnic during June Week, we had a ball and did a lot of shooting. Our ofiicers-in-charge, Major Kutchinski, Capt. Dunham, and Capt. Battreall, all deserve much credit for prodding us when necessary and cooperating in everything we attempted or accomplished.

We are the team v oted most likely to lose every match. We don ' t really-let that bother us too much though. Teams which don ' t practice don ' t win. But as Shakespeare didn ' t say, " The shoot ' s the thing, " and the joy of getting out on the line with a rifle that hits what you aim at is enough of a reward. Add to this the people we meet who feel as we do, and you may begin to understand why we love what every Yearling comes to hate because of P.R.I. We know that shooting is an art that can ' t be picked up over night. The clubs we fire against have had many years to learn, and their membership is always ready to help us im- prove. We become part of a brotherhood when we pick up our rifle and walk up to the line. It ' s fun to belong. 223 OxNeill, kj, St ill IK Major IIB March, tdwards. r A ; leriian.lez, C. Hepiier. TVi .

From his Club ' s regular meetings, he is able to extend his grasp of the Language itself and his knowledge of the people of the world who speak that Language. One easily realizes that in today ' s ever shrinking world, fluency in a foreign language is of great importance to an officer. His duties in the service will take him to many foreign countries and will give him an opportunity to exercise and put to good works his extra knowl- edge of customs and traditions learned at the informative Club meetings. To add yet more to a Cadet ' s foreign language ac- complishment, each Club conducts an educational trip to New York City twice annually. RUSSIAN Silting: Kaiiarow-ki, SM : VotriilM. WK: Puscheck.

Contrary to popular opinion, racing is not the deadbeat art of lying in the boat, while listening to the waves slap against the hull. In reality, it requires skill, con- centration, and judgment. The sailing season begins in March right after Spring leave, when the ice is still on the river, and continues through May. Six to eight regattas are held each season, both at West Point and away. In 1958. as in the past. Army is expected to take their share of the honors in competi- tion against Navy, U. S. Merchant Marine Academy, U. S. Coast Guard Academy, and colleges like Rutgers. R.P.I., Colgate, Fordham, and Webb. This organization boasts of nearly every advantage that could be desired in a chess club. It has ample clocks and boards; access to a truly complete library of chess literature; a strong competing team; weekly seminar devoted to instruc- tion; and finally a full tournament schedule. By its affiliation with two national leagues it is known throughout the country. But with chess there is infinite variety, and our progress does not end in the past. Plans are being formed to revise our present rating system; set up a history of the Club ' s past activ- ity, and a record of all its future match-games; and introduce postal chess as a further means of increasing skill and provid- ing entertainment.

At the same time it is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, and to assist them with their own particular problems. A large shipment of new equipment has greatly extended the Club ' s ability to develop the cadet, over the four years that he is here, into a man who is better able to assume his new duties as a second lieutenant in the Regular Army or Air Force. Confidence in your body leads to confidence in your thinking. Skiers are famous for their enthusiasm, and this applies in double measure here at West Point, where enthusiasm must often replace snow. The Ski Club supports a multitude of activities, which include showing snow-filled movies for frus- trated skiers, providing a first class Ski Patrol for the Victor Constant Ski Slope, and fielding a team in four-event inter- collegiate competition. This year ' s activities were marked by an increased Post-wide participation, and a better-then-hoped- for amount of snow here at the academy. Although not in- cluded in the club ' s regular program, many members spent their leaves at ski areas through the country. It has been said that skiing is a way of life. This may be somewhat of an ex- aggeration, applied to We.st Point, but it is nevertheless true that, for many Cadets, skiing did much to lighten the dark days of gloom period. ski club Seated: Powers, DR; Thomas.

It is hoped that these tournaments will attract as many cadets as possible as the annual tournament has been the sole function of the golf club to date. Cadets are benefited by membership in the golf club in several ways. Transportation is provided for those who wish to go out to the golf course. The coach of the golf team is made available for lessons to club members. Finally and perhaps most important, cadets are able to practice and improve their game for future play as officers in the armed forces. handball club Any afternoon of the week the Handball Courts are always occupied with these fanatic fools who get their kicks out of ball slapping. Actually, the members of the club are developing themselves in a game that is played very much throughout the Army. The Handball Club ' s objective is to aid its members in developing their game. A competitive lad- der is maintained during the year, as well as a Cadet Tourna- ment. In addition, numerous matches are scheduled with teams from New York City, thus providing first caliber competition for the members of the club. In February, the West Point Inter- collegiate Handball tournament which brings together the top players from each of five colleges is held here at West Point. After the close of the season, the club ' s activities are ended with the annual picnic. 228 I I ' Hi .Mif.u JA; ,l,h.lfr, I.I; (..„,li, lA; Fer dez, C; Barker.

An eight man hunting party to Camp Drum for three days brought home a varied bag. The privilege of participating in the rifle phase of the USMA deer control program found four of the ten men claiming a buck. Along with the club officers pic- tured above are five of the first classmen fortunate enough to initiate the program. The archery program has been enhanced this year by a field archery course to test the skill of the amateur and expert. For the fisherman the fishing contest continues, and for the campers, the club maintains three cabins. With club activities expanding each year, there is room in the Outdoor Sportsman ' s Club for every man in the Corps. water polo club The water polo club has strong opposition this year: Yale, Manhattan, and the New York Athletic Club, but an even stronger team than previously is being launched into the tank this year. Bolstered by a strong yearling contingent, we are looking forward to a successful year. Our club this year is faster than before, and we are aiming for a victory in the Junior Nationals, where we placed third last year. We jump off this year after Spring Leave, and we wind up around June Week. Our final effort in play will be the Junior Nationals. Our year ends with a farewell to the First Class and a picnic at Delafield Pond. Front Row: Herberger, K; Shannep, R; Boyle, T; Cerjan, P; Bulloek, T; Hunt, L; Second Row: Moore.

Its activities range from covering all athletic con- tests played here to arranging for radio and television pro- grams about West Point to complying with requests from publishers of newspapers and periodicals for articles on their native sons to sending out home town releases on cadets who have made achievements or gained recognition. The primary objective of the Detail is to keep West Point alive in the eyes of the public both for better public relations and for purposes of attracting more young men to join our ranks. There are 95 cadets in the Detail which works primarily as an auxiliary to the Public Information Office of the United States Military Academy. Unlike most extra-curricular activi- ties, the work produced by the Detail does not often give im- mediate and discernible results. Despite that fact, the members have done well in accomplishing the role and mission of the Cadet Public Information Detail. 230 wJSbS B Kneeling: WeI.er. WR : Pedersoii, ML: Burke, JC: Zimmer.

Late last year, the Fencing Club got its start under Capt. Herman, formerly of the Dept. of Foreign Languages, and several 1st Classmen who had taken fencing as a part of plebe gym here at the Academy. At present we are working toward the develop- ment of a competition team. Our coach, Sgt. Lavarna, is a former assistant fencing instructor now perma- nently a member of the USMA Band. Under his guid- ance, we are making excellent progress. Our end aims are to revive interest in fencing here at the Academy both for relaxation, and that Army domination may be extended to cover yet an- other " field of friendly strife. " " f enci " g lub scoutmasters council Two years ago an extra-curricular ac- tivity was officially recognized by the Blue Book and received the name of the Scout- masters Council. Its members are cadets who had been in the Boy Scouts of America prior to entering West Point and who wanted to continue the work and pass on to boys just entering the Boy Scouts the knowledge they themselves had gained. The group ' s primary mission is helping the Post Boy Scout troop by furnishing leaders. However, the Council makes itself available to the National Council, BSA for special projects. Two groups of the Council attended the National Boy Scout Jam- boree last summer and served as instructors in the Field Sports Program. The organization provides an invaluable asset to public relations in coming in contact with this select group of American boys in the Boy Scouts of America. Sealed: Tuttle, WG; Lt. Col.

But behind the scenes, a small group of " Corps Studs " were hard at work learning Cheers, painting posters, organizing Mess Hall Rallies, and trying to figure a way to keep the Corps spirit rolling. Following the doctrine set forth by Capt. Forrester, and ably led by Dick Thomas and Mike Davall, the Rabble Rousers lent their support to many of the Army Teams. Whether it be a send-off for A-squad Football or a small group to cheer on our Cross Country team, the Cheer Leaders were willing and able. 232 mule riders lield. MF; Cluffey, TH ; KckelLarper.

Standing high on the hill behind the barracks, the tall gothic walls look down upon all. For those of us who worshipped iiere. the long march up the hill wasn ' t always appreciated, until we found ourselves a part of the solemn yet comforting hour of worship. The Chapel meant additional activities to many of us. Some served as acolytes while others served as ushers. More than a hundred of us sang in the renowned Cadet Chapel Choir, lifting our voices in joyful hymns. Still others taught Sunday School in the basement classrooms to the Post children. But all of us will remember the lofty, narrow sanctuary— not for its architecture— but for the deep feeling of humbleness it inspired in us. when we realized that we stood before the Master. Chaplain B Chapel CHimers. ..T ,...,, . . ... . . ., -«»««V»— Many of the class of " 58 will long remember the little chapel overlooking the Hudson and the two padres, Monsignor Moore and Father McCormack, who have given us so much good advice and so many laughs through these four years. Growth of the Catholic membership of the Corps has made necessary the present alterations which will make the Catholic chapel even more beautiful than the one we will remember. Our two priests were ably assisted in their unending job by such men as Lou Gennaro, Leo Smith, and Dick Trabert who headed the acolytes, choir, and Cardinal Newman Forum re- spectively. The many varied activities at the chapel helped to make better men of those who participated. The newest addition to the activities, the Cardinal Newman Forum, occu- pied an important place among these activities by giving us a better knowledge and understanding of our religion. To the two padres goes our thanks for a job well done. 1 atlier M.Cori.iirk an.l erv Kevciend M Catholic Chapel Acolytes. o ' §»m 9 o €- 1 a e -I- The Catholic Chapel Choir CATHOLIC CHAPEL SbS JEWISH CHAPEL Every Sunday the Jewish Chapel Squad holds its services at the Old Cadet Chapel.

By the end of First class year, we in A-1 had got to know one another quite well. Practically all of us agree that we had a pretty good group. Plebe year was full of smirks with people like Davis. Wade, and Fagg getting upper class yucks. Yearling year saw men like DeJardin. Melnik. and Fagg dragging back from corps squad. Second class year found many lost articles in sub- division 2-B. Puscheck, Robinson. Miller, and Brown also had extra-curricular time out on " Simpleton Square. " First class year arrived with its bevy of sweet- hearts. Among those to go first were Edwards, Waddell, and Yurick. During the four years, among those most gung-ho will be remembered Williams, Mayer, and George. Brownie had his love trouble while Garrett, Gordon. Ryan, Hanson, and Foulkes traded off " d " blind dates. Stoney and Dink spent a lot of time writing let- ters, while Klotzbach spent all of his time doing the same. And as a parting thought, if any of us ever feel badly we will just think of Grouch and smile. 2nd Class: (Front Row Left to Right) Conway, RM; Walsh, JE Jr Davis, DR: (Second Roic) Roberts. TD; Job.

I Four lightning years ago we arrived, a motley crew with lots of courage, determination, just plain guts and plenty of doubts, too. The doubts disappeared long ago but the rest have grown through the years. We ' ve presented as united a front as you ' ll find but the talents were as diversified as the fun was rampant. Plebe year was a state of shocked bliss while we learned to fight oft " the Academic department. Our ranks were still thinned a bit, though, when Plebe year ended, but after a big thirty days the old fight was back again. Yearling year ' s deadbeat never seemed to ma- terialize but maybe it was because Cow year was upon us before we could begin to appreciate our brownboys. First class year was all ours and although those long weekends were myths to most of us, who were we to let our spirits be daunted? Now that it ' s all over, there is but that B-1 spirit remaining, a spirit that ' ll keep us united always. Captain R.

After that everyone knew that we were going to have a good time— and stick together when the chips were down. That was a reputation we built ourselves. We accepted a few C-l traditions too: C-l and Intramural Champions were synonymous. C-l and Drill Streamers weren ' t. Some of us became famous quickly— the " Cambridge Cannon Ball. " Dick driving the Graphics hives, and Igor writing bibliographies while section roll was being taken. Most of us developed gradually:— Kelly ' s love life. Gary ' s aptitude. Glenn ' s nickname, Al ' s devotion to R R. Will ' s academic standing. Bobby C ' s devotion to birds. Bobby M ' s trip sections. Paul ' s love for poopsheets. and Charley ' s stomach. Some of us developed late— it took Munge four years to get a bang out of West Point. Came firstie year and lots of things happened. Jimbo got stripes to go with his stars, Schaf wore a red wig, Sandy parted his hair, Buddy picked a traditional site to get pinned. Tank got to know the TD and Sammy moved to the tall country. We leave: with a few unsolved mysteries— How did Gipe and the Loon work the 8.5 deal? Would Mitch change his name? Did Jim really rough draft his love letters? A good bit of advice— J. K. on being suave. D ' Amorus on cars, Willy on stocks and bonds: and a deep regard for the ones we lost on the way. 2nd Class: (Front Row Left to Right) Gillette.

We had one real hive in Jim while Babe and a few others fought desperately. Johnny, our leader, and Mike competed for the most decorated grey jacket while Vince, Jay, Bob, and Chuck vied for dragging honors. We saw Jack quieted down and the chubby one finally swallowed the bait once and for all. Percy and Pro gave us an appreciation for the South while Walt and Joe showed us what Yankees were like. On the football field Sam took pictures of Crazy-Legs Slater while Ray announced the game. Larry S. and Larry L. worked on the hundredth night show while John watched the money pour in. Tony provided the spice that is needed in any mixture. We were a motley crew, but we always stuck together and someday, somewhere we all shall meet again. 2ikI Class: (Front Roiv Left to Ri ht) Bell, AT; Nash, JM .Sullivan, JH; (Second Row) Simpson, DT; Weber, WR Johnson, GP; FreelantI, JT; Tomiczek, PW; Haskin, EI; Soli.

I West Point has left its maris; on the twenty-five of us just as we have made our impression on the Academy. Duric left all the fun and went to the Tool Shed this year; Uncle Bum-Bum tried to keep track of the battalion supplies; P.T. finally got out of bed just in time to graduate, and Ben was the only man to visit Long Tom behind the South Guard Room. Kubes was famous for falling on the floor; Harvinius and Timonius were noted as gladiators, and Curt addressed many envelopes while Bob kept an eye on Vassar. While this went on George built a hi-fi set and Peeps tried to take it apart. Dan and Dusty got off the ski slope safely; Elvis Cooksley once awoke in Connecticut, and Tube impressed us all with his hat size. Dick worshipped R. E. Lee, but Bill was a disciple of Rock " n " Roll and Shep took up for the Indians. George managed to keep our money straight for three years while Tony was hard put to keep Ham straight. Jim kept thinking about reducing, Dick about gaining weight, and Eddies tried to keep the women away. And now that Willie has returned from the Pointer office, we can graduate with all these memories which are now part of the last four unforgettable years.

" By day we surged forth, always at the last possible minute to collect drill streamers, BTP ' s, and " red tenths " with breathtaking ease — never failing to return in time for that precious Brown Boy Interlude just before supper. Taps found our hallowed halls strangely silent, and only an extra vigilant O.C. would harken to the hiss of a shower, the muted rattle of a roulette wheel, the screech of chalk— small sounds betraying feverish activity. We met the T. D. and they were ours — Engineers (Dust!), Navy (Gear Adrift) and even the Armor with its firepower, mobility, shock action, and critical laundry lists. This was G-1— the greatest!

Bill Parker started things off by " dedicating " the library. Branch wasn ' t there to get it on film, but the TD got it on paper, just the same. Paul defended his wardrobe all the time he was here, and Stanley became the " before and after " man. Wes kept us in shape through it all, while Vic taught us the value of spooniness. We all dreamed of going to work for Randy someday, except for Blackhawk, who is still trying to get the country back into the hands of the Indians. Freddie finally learned how to tie his own necktie, and Bish finally settled on going just one branch. Glenn earned his vote finally, and Jerry Betts is still cleaning the cinders out of his toenails. Boris came through like a true engineer, even though it took Tony five years to beat the AAA. Fink did his best to make actors out of us all, and Bill Ganey controlled the national debt. George was in on most everything, but will probably be remembered as the company songbird. Tim laughed at just about everything, even Jerry ' s jokes, and Carve finally got to be the honcho. John, we saved for last, because he was in bed when we wrote this. On the last go ' round we missed Captain Charlie and the other twelve, for it took us all to make it " Happy-One. " Well, it ' s all behind us now, four years of laughter, friendship, and sweat. H-l ' s class of ' 58 is on its way, good luck to us all, and so say we all! 3rd Class: (Front Row Left to Right) Dire, JW; Pickens, M; Steele, JS; Cox, RL; Beltz, RA ; Coose, A; Caraballo, J; (Second Row) Brady, EJ; Bloch, AL; Tiohenor, JR; Kirby, JP; Bald win, ER; (Third Row) Allen, L: Geist, T; Neely, CR; Gibbs.

Here we are, lads! The long haul is over and we ' ve folded our Brownboys for the last time. Little Jack has risen from the pad, Chazz opened his eyes at reveille, and Lars smiled. Our romantic stalwarts. Algy, Line, George, Dick. Cloin, Lon, and oh! Sweet Brucie, have their ladies waiting breathlessly at the gate. Jerry has sheathed his slide rule, Mosc, his saber, and the " Human Spoon " has forgotten to shine his shoes. To the gentlemen of the underclasses we bequeath it all: Tex ' s sweatshirt, R.T. ' s broken banjo strings. Alex ' s A-pins, Tom ' s seat in Chapel, Vern ' s megaphone, Butch ' s romances, and Snavely ' s tenths. How you will manage without Ron ' s smile. Gene ' s muck, and Jim ' s financial acumen, we can ' t guess. We do know you hate to see us go, but Farouk ' s voice will haunt you from the bayous, Phil will send you greetings from the continent, and Chuck ' s poopsheet-precision eye will be upon you.

We who graduate from K-1 this June existed only as individuals at the end of " Beast Barracks " in 1954, but we now have a common bond which holds us together; a bond which makes parting rather sad. No more will we share together experiences similar to those of the past four years ... the tense anguish of Plebe life . . . joy at becoming upperclassmen ... a thorough enjoyment of Yearling life ... the academic challenge as Second Classmen . . . and the even greater challenge of this last year . . . academics . . . athletics . . . parades . . . trips and leave. Each of us has dis- tinct memories of these periods in our cadet life, mem- ories which will become more valuable with the passage of time. A new way beckons. Although there is sorrow in our separation, there is hope in our future. The new challenge is more complex and more important than the old. Greater responsibilities, as well as privileges, await us. We are confident, knowing our ability and our devotion to this country, that we shall cope with this challenge as honorably as have our predecessors. Let us remember well the lessons of these forma- tive years, and humbly and courageously join the ranks of the Long Grey Line. Captain J. H.

Three years and a few drill streamers later we faced our last parade with mixed emotions. Mixed between relief and nostalgia, depend- ing on the individual. We learned many things in the intervening years. Things like when not to wear torn T-shirts and pajamas, when to sew buttons on class shirts, and when to stop wearing caps that the grads left behind. Most of all we learned that L company was a pretty fair outfit made up of some pretty fine guys. We leave knowing, among other things, that a gentleman always wears a bathrobe. And not a torn one either. Check? Captiiin J. p. Kei 2.1(1 Class: (Front Row Left to Right) Carroll, JF; Roush, DL ; Miner, RM ; Franks, FM; Moraski.

We became another page in the glorious history of the Runts. We soon found that hard work and a few laughs can overcome even the toughest of Plebe Years. Gold shields found a few of our number gone and a few more under the brown boy. Cow year was academic horror but found close ties of friendship becoming even stronger. The trips made experts, and playboys, of us all and gave us many a fond memory. By the time we pinned our black shields on our collars the prospective bachelors were growing fewer. Our Great Captains finally got their chance but still found time for week- ends, firstie parties, and endless arguments on various cars and branches. By June Week the invitations were out, the plans were made, and the familiar ring of hands was shaken. We will go many ways but we will never forget the work, laughs, spirit, and friendship that made M-1. M-l Major E. .VI.

It wasn ' t long before we all wished fervently that it would quickly become the last — or better yet — be erased from our minds forever. This idea prevailed for a long time, and we all yearned for that blessed day of permanent release. For some it has been longer than others. We lost a few, left one to ' 59 and even picked up one from " 57. " But all things come to him who waits. " June is just around the corner. We shall never forget A-2, the friends we have made, and the days we spent at Hudson High. So — " until on our last battle field. Hail, all Hail, to 1958!

Slowly this group united to meet its challenges as one. The bonds strengthened as the years passed, welding the friendships that will last through many decades. A spirit of working together prevailed in these men through their stay at the Academy, though each man developed the determined, individual character to make him a leader. A few fell by the way in the uphill strug- gle, but the diminished ranks grew even stronger. Now. with graduation in sight, each shall select his path to face the trials of life. And when our country finds the need, these men stand ready with their all. a glowing tribute to the truly great " 58. ird t;lass: (Front Row Left to Right) Herman, DA; Cerjan, PG Dunian, WH; Finley. 0.4; Gates, RH; Limbaugh, C; Meder, WA iSpronil Row) Handler.

I Since we first ascended " The Steps of D-2 " four eventful years ago, we have never stopped being thank- ful for our fraternal haven in the corner of Old North Area. Having inherited the reputation of " The Party Company, " we won a place for " 58 with a year-long working, ear-to-ear smirking plebe year. Off to a fast start, we quickly developed the solidarity, cooperation, and warm friendship which h ave become the treasured earmarks of old Delta-Dos. With shields turned to black, and GDA in place of Jack, we put the finishing touches on four years to be proud of. We descend " the Steps " now. leaving a little behind, and carrying much away. ird (li.. (hroiil l „„ I, It In liiulilJ Iai( , si), (,.m1«iii. J• ; ( jrii..):lii, K , (r..«l,v, h 1 , I, .,m.,r.i, P.

For Christ- mas the Dean, in the true Yuletide spirit, shortened our drill roll, rounding out our losses to four. We are des- tined to lose only one more, and that came during cow year when Eddie got wrapped up in the fluids tubes, but we were fortified by the addition of Toffy and Buddy. All the events of these four years are now only memories, but we ' ll remember most of all: Dick and Mac ' s skit at the company party plebe year. Timmy ' s reveille trumpet, Toby ' s lonesome guitar, Butch ' s hi-fi set, Terry ' s ever-expanding electronic gear. Buddy ' s long fight to become a firstie, the rum runners of the 30th. Don ' s coaching. Corky ' s many soccer goals, and young Bobby, our soccer captain. Dye your trousers green, troops, they ' re cutting our pay. 2nd Class: (Front Row Left to Right) Lynch.

In its old age, the football grew larger, and so did the recipient. Drill Streamers, star men. intra-murder champions, and muckoids highlighted our four year stay. F-2 grew in spirit and cohesion and shook up the Corps by bracing yearlings.

Here enclosed in their suburban estate, the twenty- four dream happy dreams, stirring forth now and then to check the progress of the great glacier, and to ad- vance to mighty conflicts. Outlasting a total of four tacs, these mighty warriors have amassed numerous trophies, among which may be numbered one drill streamer, one Brigade Champion,ship, and the Hotel Piccadilly. Among their ranks are numbered the finest of soldiers, scholars, and salesmen. In their hearts are courage, devotion, and a profound attachment to the pad. In their futures lie hard work, eventual triumph, and several nasty headaches for their superiors. They are ready for the worst. The spirit is willing, and the flesh is not particularly weak.

For three years we stoutly de- fended our right to tell the first class how to run the company. For that final year we sent Fred Seller to the Brigade Staff to publish the orders. Husky lounged sophistically on the Battalion Staff making snide re- marks about finally getting out of the company. Dick Webb refused to let anyone tell him how to run the company so we all relaxed for a year. We had the com- mander of the area squad in the fall. Our faithful Clap- per showed up enough to let us know he cared, and carefully counted those periodicals. With two Banker ' s Trophies in our four years and the Dean ' s Trophy sev- eral times, we feel we can pop our chests up, pat our- selves on the back and post.

Donning our freshmen beanies and looking out for the paddle sticks of the Tactical Department, we moved and manipu- lated our way to the Top Dog spot without too many losses. Maybe those years have seemed long to our less fortunate brethren in other companies, but the spirit and the tradition of a company " which takes care of its own " have been a crutch in thin times and have made the weeks pass as hours. Perhaps that spirit and that tradition of Cadet days will last beyond the grey walls during times when the eons aren ' t passing too quickly, and a friendly smile or handshake is not to be had. 2nd Class: (front Rote Left to Right) Tennant.

The men of M-2 will go one step more to say that there is no friendship more binding in the Corps of Cadets than the one shared with our company mates. This is the kind of comradeship that places Mighty Deuce among the elite of the Corps.

DEPOSIT INSLRANCE CORPORATION 516 NEW HORIZONS ARE AHEAD FOR MANNED AIRCRAFT No matter how far man ' s teclmical ability may soar, he himself has one faculty that no machine will ever duplicate— the ability to make a command decision ... to meet an emergency or make the most of an opportunity. This unique power — implemented by higher performance airplanes — may very well make the manned aircraft of the future our most versatile, flexible, accurate weapon. Though the new strategic missiles will be mighty buttresses to our nation ' s defense, we also need tnanncd weapon systems for iiia.vimuui security. These new aircraft will fly so fast, so high, so far that they will be the forerunners of manned spacecraft. They will be able to bomb any target on earth with pinpoint precision — or to launch a missile from the edge of space. Such aircraft are now being developed at North American. To this vital task North American brings the experience gained in building more supersonic aircraft than all other companies combined. In manned and unmanned aircraft ... in rocket engines... in automatic control systems... in nuclear reactors . . . North American Aviation and its divisions are constantly forging ahead into the fields of the future. NORTH AMERICAN AVIATION, INC. A Los Angeles, Canoga Park, Downey, Californii i bus, Ohio; Neosho, Miscc A 517 THE ARMY MUTUAL AID ASSOCIATION As a member of the Army Mutual Aid Association for over 30 years, I have been nappy to note its constant growth in size and financial strength. The Association has always operated as an adjunct of the Army and, as demonstrated by its constantly increasing membership, has effectively displayed its ability to assist in handling in the insurance affairs of its officer members and their families. It is, therefore, a pleasure to take this opportunity to commend our Association and its work. Toward the close of 1957, the Army Mutual attained the objective of having $100 million of insurance in force. This is an important milestone for any life insurance concern and is even more significant for an Association such as ours with its limita- tion on the amount of insurance which may be issued to each member. Now that career Reserve officers may become members, the Army Mutual is truly the life insurance representative of the professional Army officer. I urge every eligible officer to consider carefully the benefits of membership, and I recommend that each member assure that all eligibles in his organization or unit are informed of the advantages of joining. The Association ' s assistance in planning for the protection of dependents, the prompt payment of $1,500 of the benefit, the substantially increased benefits now being paid, and the experienced and thoughtful help and guidance furnished to bereaved families make the Army Mutual an essential element of the life insurance program of every career officer.

Some 20,000 hours ago, as the missile flies, America ' s first operational tactical missile - the TM-61 MATADOR - was nearing the field test stage, and the Martin VIKING research rocket program was already underway. A new age was being born. And having par- ticipated in the delivery, at that time we made a positive decision: The effective development and growth of to- morrow ' s missiles and rockets would depend heavily, we said, upon our own ability to en- gineer and deliver the total missile syster complete with launching, guidance and operational facilities, integrally engineered for reliability in the customer ' s hands. The decision we made was important.
