THE Scale ' Feet 155 Self-propelled Howitzer One of the most versatile artillery pieces is the 155 millimeter self-propelled Howitzer. The greatest improvement in this wea- pon is its cross country mobility. In this piece the transition between towed artillery and self-propelled artillery can be seen. Because of its ruggedness and dependability, it was used very effectively in Korec in the offensive and in covering withdrawals. This howitzer is mm being replaced by newer models with better armor protection and wider traverse.

To each succeeding class is transmitted that intangible spirit of devotion which is embodied in West Point ' s motto. " Duty. Honor. Country. No other American military institution can boast so proud a tradition or so rich a heritage or can claim so many famous leaders, including two presi- dents of the United States. The history of West Point and the story of the growth of the United States are so closel) knit that each is reflected in the ,,ther. for through periods of peace and times of trouble the Military Academv has produced the men who have formed the officer core of our Resular Arm v. As June Week comes each year, another Class is sent forth to join those who have gone before in saying, " Live, serve, and die. we pray. West Point for thee. " THE MISSION OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY The mission of the United States Militan Academy is to instruct and train the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate will have the qualities and attributes essential to his progressive and continued development through- out a lifetime career as an officer of the Regular Army. Inherent in the mission of the United States Military Academy are these objectives: m rn Wi Mental -To provide a broad collegiate education in the arts and sciences leading to a bachelor of science degree. ncompressible. By far the greatest portion of a cadet ' s time during the winter months is spent in academic endeavors — in his section rooms during the da and studying in lii- room during the evenings. The overall objective is gained through a varietj of subjects, both scientific and humani- tarian. Each Academic Department aims at doing its part to develop the cadet into the finished product an officer in the lifetime service of ln ' s country. In the classroom, everj cadel recites regularl) in ever} subject, and outside f the classroom there is a myriad of educational extra- curricular activities in which a cadet ma) pursue and develop his own particular interests. A few minutes fc ing in one of the A theoretical assumption is verified in the laboratory. Moral - To develop in the cadet a high sense of duty and the attributes of character, disci- pline and motivation essential to the profes- sion of arms. The moral training received ai the Military Academy permeate- ever) aspect of the cadet ' s life. The sense of clut to countrj which is firmly instilled in each cadet is the quality which distinguishes a West Pointer. Cadets come to realize that there can he no compromise in the high standards of dut) and honor set at the Militar) Academy, and that the charactei required " I an office) must be above reproach. Physical -To develop in the cadet those physical attributes essential to a lifetime career as an officer of the Regular Army. High standards of physical Fitness are maintained bv each cadet throughout lii- Eour years at the Academy. The physical education program fosters not only individual fitness but also provides a broad background in a varietj ol team sports. Varsit) teams represenl the academ) in sixteen different sports. In addition, cadets participate as coaches, officials, administrators and players in an intra mural athletic program which is second to none. " Even man an athlete " has become more than a slogan; it has become a realit) through West Point ' s vigorous physical education program. A reasonable fac iity can be found in the wide variety of sports offered- T ■fc 2 V S ttfcjMi Military - To provide a broad basic military education. A cadet ' s military training begins the moment he enters the academy and continues throughout the four jrear course. During the first two years, emphasis is placed on learning to follow, and acquiring those skills essential to leadership. These principles of leadership are then put into practice as cadets lake on the responsibility of com- mand positions during their Second and First Class ears. A preview of thing Orientation in the latest developments and pro- cedures proved to be interesting and enlightening. t Military training is integrated with academic instruction for nine months of eacli year, but two months of each summer are devoted exclusively to preparing the cadet for his future militan job. An indoctrination into the cap- abilities of all the armed forces and branches provides the future officer with an integrated view of our nation ' s de- fense teams. The military education afforded to each cadet provides a foundation which combines with future learning and experience to develop the world ' s greatest mil- itan leaders. Numerous events have taken place between the time en we took our oaths as cadets and the time when we pledged our services to our country as officers. We add these events — work, pleasure. happ moments, serious moments — as our contribution to the historj of West Point and here present a brief account of those four years together. U R The Commencement of hope you enjoy your stay. I go where and get what? a New Way of Life. Securing our appointments to tin- Military Academy was the firsl step toward becoming a Wesl Pointer and ii was at this poinl that the histor) l oui class reall) began. Then we gathered at the ai ious posts and bases throughout the nation to undergo a series of rigorous examinations. We were run through the mill both mentalh and physically, but emerged from the ordeal with man) new friends, many of whom were to become our classmates. Following the entrance exams we could onl) wait for that letter which said . . . Posture, Faces, and Clothes Changed We meet our hosts ... " I am pleased to inform you that you have been selected for admission and are authorized to report to the United Slates Militan Academy, West Point. N.Y. on 5 July 1955. You will find helpful information in the en- closed instructions about transportation, baggage, funds, and other matters pertaining to admission. " Beast Barracks Had Begun. Our sidelong glances at the Fascinating ii:his which were encountered on that first day were soon confined to what was direct!) to our front. Each one of us had a dif- ferent idea of what Plebe Year would be like, hut we were all assured by our friends and families at home that if we could make il through the first year everything would be rosy from then on. So. on 5 July 1955. with varied emotions we double-timed up on the stoops and shouted ' " Sir, New Cadet Zilch reports to the First Sergeant of First New Cadet Compan) for the first time as ordered.

And for these first two months we were subjected to a great deal of valuable training massed under the head- ing of Reast Barracks. We soon learned that the title was appropriate and found it quite difficult to be optimistic toward the next eleven months. It was a rare individual, however, who found time to think much about his troubles, for every waking hour was occupied. The theme of our I raining was centered around formations . . . reveille for- mations, meal formations, drill formations, athletic for- mations, stoops formations, and shower formations.

" The letters we sent home were inadequate to express how our lives had changed. We soon could satisfactorily execute various move ments of the soldier without arms and do a " squads right ' maneuver with precision and finesse. Adding a rifle to this we found ourselves on the Plain learning the basic move ments of a real West Point Parade. The drilling was ex haustive, but we !i l much more . . . Straighten out that back, .

The Army ' s daily dozen usually started the day. with various grass drills and guerilla exercises interspersed for variety. In the afternoons, of course, there was Mass Athletics where we could loosen up a bit and have a limited amount of fun. In addition to this were numerous lectures and lessons presenting what we needed to know as soldiers and as cadets.

Some were lucky enough to spend one day riding but they paid for it b) working on the numerous details. As the Hike ended, so did Beast Barracks, and we were thankful to have come tlii far. mmgjmi « asSr Mom ' s cooking Setting up housekeeping at Leone ' s fan WEF Plebe Gym . . . Guard . . . Formations It seemed like our first day at West Point all over again when the upperclassmen returned from leave and summer assignments, and we moved into our new companies. We had little spare time during Reorganization Week with cleaning rooms, learning the basics of the academic system and try- ing to fit seventy-five strange faces with just as many new names. We perhaps expected things to he a little easier with the beginning of the academic year but found that Plebe Year was just starting.

Our class formations provided an ex- cellent opportunity to be put on calls for being late for the two-minute bell or not having shoes shin) enough for some Yearling Plebe-chaser. Sometimes it was rough on the sec- tion marchers who. during wet weather, had to juggle a slack of books in one hand and fill out an absentee slip with the other — all without getting wet. Besides excelling in class during the da) we had three chances in which to excel before the upperclassmen — at the table. " Dumbwillie, where ' s m coffee? " " In the pot, Sir.

Witli our chins Clapping in the breeze and our classmates at the helm we spent Plebe Christ- mas just as thousands before us had one. There were a few among our ranks who would have perferred to go home for the holidays, but what could we do at home that we couldn ' t do here? We occupied ourselves with dragging, sacking, sucking down the boodle, exercising for at least one hour daily, and being nostalgic. There was usually always some obnoxious company-mate around to pull us out of the sack long enough to see the water carnival or the ice show with its never-to-be-forgotten Southern Sweepstakes. There were also mam other things . . . the other halt F ' • . . . To be remembered. It was almost like being at borne on Christmas Day when we ate dinner in Washington Hall with our parents and friends. On that day we also took our visitors into our barracks to show them a " typical " cadet room. The old rooms never looked so good as thev did that day. with the decorations breaking up the drab green walls and a femile face appearing behind the opposite desk. When Plebe Christinas ended we were faced with . . . Gloom Period . . . Hundredth Night We ruled for thirty i . . . Gloom Period. We saw the first of our classmates go clow 11 under the burden of the academics as our ranks unc depleted at the hands of the Academic Department, but we kept looking forward. Then came Hundredth Night. We ciammcd in a few upperclass chins and found that they couldn ' t brace any harder than we could. Spring leave followed soon. This was a welcome interlude as we began to see the indications of the end of Plebe Year. And then 96 days after 100th night came . . .

No one was exactly happy to return from those thirty leisurely days of our first summer leave, hut at least we were happy to know that cadet life would be somewhat dif- ferent now. We were Yearlings. Our first job on return was Third Class Year : With Camp Buckner Our First Tactical Training. O !i . . . Move to Camp Buckner. We picked up the endless assortment of clothing and equipment that had accumu- ated in a year ' s time and migrated to West Point ' s Coun- ry Club. But even on the beautiful shore of Lake Pop- olopen there was work to be done. The first item on the agenda was cleaning the barracks, followed by various periods of orientation and instruction. All was accomplish- ed under the capable leadership of the First Class who soon found that the best ua to keep from being thrown into the lake was not to overwork us. The majorit) of our time was occupied u ith . . . The Weekend Play ... A rigorous training program. Although it was centered around the Infantry, our training gave us a great deal of insight into the other combat arms and support branches. We gained an appreciation for climbing hills and eating C-rations as well as learning to handle nearly every weapon the Infantry can claim. We developed such an affection for those weapons that we often spent our free time cleaning them. But on week-ends and free after- noons there was plenty of time for . . . - The Weekday Work . . . . Fun and relaxation. The beach was usually lin- t-enter of attraction although the sand was habituall) hid- den by eountless O.D. blankets. There were some who took their chances for " eight-and-eight " and did some boating. Others learned to water ski. Main of us fell prey to the inevitable clutches of the " brown boy. " Add to this the excellent dragging faeilities and we couldn ' t ask for more. The climax to our Yearling summer came . . . Taking advantage of the shade, we absorb some of the particulars of armor. Oh yes! Reviews at Camp Buck ; $M m , r Fortunately, it happens only twice during Buckner. . . . During cur last week at Camp Buckner. The termi- nation of two months training was the Buckner Stakes which called for ever) hit of knowledge we had gained during the summer. Much more enjoyable, however, was Camp Illumination with its color line shows, carnivals, cos- tumes, hops and beach parties. The hook- were nailing. fl Buckner Closes With a Blaze . . . Camp Illumination however, so we gathered up our Courage Cards and started hack to West Point. Anxious to see the new Fourth Class and some old friends we started in on Reorganization Week and then . . . Reorganization Week Passed . . . and the Year Began A tour as CCQ offered a brief rest from academics during Yearling Year . . . Back to school. Academics seemed somewhat more difficult to many but we broke the monotony of classes with our tours as CCQ. Yearling Year wasn ' t extremely exciting but we found that " Yearling Deadbeat " was only a myth until Chemistry ended and Military Hygiene filled the gap. OPE must have heard how much we liked plebe wrestling so they gave us a short course in unarmed combat with volleyball, basketball, handball, squash and badminton thrown in for variation. There were all sorts of things . . . Intramurals and the keen spirit of competition pre- vailed throughout the winter and Gloom Period. The football trios broke uo the routine of the fall semes ... To keep us busy. Intramurals took up the weekda) afternoons of those who weren ' t on Corps Squads. The ones who were more athleticall) inclined joined the varsit) teams and made a g 1 showing for our class on the " fields of friendl) strife. " When Christmas came it was nice to get aua from it all for a while. Following the happ) holidays we were back at it again with WGR ' S and June Week. Our second year ended and marked the half-wa) point leu our class.

The first event of our Second Class Year was . . . Second Class Year i; . . . The summer training trip. This much-talked-about even! was a welcome relief to the rigors of academies and the two previous summers. B some miracle we were able to cram a two-month suppl) of uniforms into one B-4 bag — being careful not to include an) civies — and started on the long trek. We stopped first at Fort Mon- mouth. The newest developments in signal communications occupied our attention at the " County Fair " but when the weekend came man) of us were off on our first authorized weekend leave. We moved on to the second stop of the trip . . . The Summer Training Began Anew A nice way to cool off. Along the Atlantic Seaboard and Throughout the South . . Fori Belvoir.

Leaving the a we dropped oui baggage off at Benning and hopped down to Eglin Air Force Base where we witnessed an impressive air-power demonstration. Next We earned our keep in more ways than one. We Travelled on . . . The Infantry school. Our barracks and chow made a good first impression and we soon found that the Army ' s " gung-ho " branch was no less enthusiastic in their training. Instead of watching demonstrations we did most of the demonstrating ourselves. Much of it was old-hat — opera- tions orders, attacks, assaults, night patrols — but we saw our share of new material, too. The day we spent with the Air- borne troops and our afternoon on the Leadership Reaction Course were two of the most interesting experiences. We ' ll remember, too, the swimming pools, the hop and all of the other recreational activities which were provided for our pleasure. We had our one-and-only parade for the summer as we concluded our two-week stay. Then we packed our bags, loaded the buses and headed for . . . Look, fellows! No. wings Meeting New Ideas Just enough time to find our bed, change into whites, and head cadet HEADQUARTERS - U.S.CC Our Thoughts Began to turn to Leave. . . . Fort Rucker. Alabama. Out in the middle of no- where we found plenty of room to maneuver those L-19 " Bird-dogs " " and our H-10 helicopters. After hearing and seeing so much about Army Aviation we wondered what the) could show us that we hadn ' t already been exposed to. The equipment wasn ' t new to us. but we ' ll have to give them credit for the fine job they did with it. We left Rucker behind as we journeyed on to Maxwell Air Force Base. We r. tift spent a week here marching to and from an air-conditioned auditorium. The time in between was spent attending semi- nars, lectures, and orientations, and standing in the rear of the room to stay awake. A few 7 of our number were fortunate enough to spend some time in the T-33 trainers there. After flying back to West Point we spent a restless night in North Area and started on our long-awaited sum- mer leave. After Leave, a Return to Academics And Other Added Features of Second Class Year. On our return from leave the onl) thing which la between us and the book- was Reorganization Week. It was a short time to make the transition from civilian to cadet hut we managed to prepare ourselves as best we could for the impending academics. The football season helped break the grind as we waited for our next leave and our morale uas boosted b) the fact that we could take . . . We found that leading the group in exercises wasn ' t as easy as it had looked from the receiving end. Weekend Relaxation On the way to the Weapons Room v!a Diagonal Wall And then the Guard Tours More Academics . . . Weekends. One weekend per semester didn ' t sound like much . . . and it wasn ' t, hut. compared to the privileges ue had enjoyed as Plebes and Yearlings, it seemed like a major improvement. On those weekends when we weren ' t fortunate enough to get away we could at least spend our time dragging. The Social Sciences Department left a stain on our memories with their contribution to our edu- cation — the anxiously-awaited Monograph. Toward the end of the year we trekked to the gym for our second tour with MP L in . . . Responsibilities increased . . . and Dragging Continued . . . Military Instructor Training. Of course, not to be outdone, the Office f Physical Education threw in a course in Physical Intructor Training. Rv the time we had taught a lesson, given a lecture and a conference, presented a couple of extemporaneous talks, made a training aid. and led physical conditioning two or more times we felt better prepared for the coming summer and anxious to put some of our classroom knowledge to practical use. While waiting for that time to come, however, we could onl) stand at the door to Washington Hall and collect fingerprints on our waistplates while conscientious!) per- forming our duties as Mess Hall Corporal, or . . .

We stuffed bottomless stomachs with northern-fried chicken and had a few libations at the general ' s picnic. And at our training we were given frequent breaks with plent) of free cokes to wash down the dust we had eaten. Rut the Armor did more than entertain us. They demonstrated for us an impressive powerful arm in action. Regretfully we left because they were waiting for us at . . . A Full Schedule of Training . . . Fort Sill. The heat was something to be remember- ed, bill there urn- other things to do than sit around and be linl. We witnessed impresshe firepower demonstrations that brought back old memories of Camp Buckner on the 105mm Howitzer range. One of our most pleasant social events of the trip was the buffalo barbecue. We not onl gol to see some genuine Indian dances but, together with Colonel Fraser, we were able to join in on a few war dances. Following our weekend here we moved on, but this wasn ' t the last we were to see of the artillery. Our last stop was . . . . . . Fort Bliss. Missiles wen- the center of attraction during our sta here. Prior to this time we had seen onl) one missile fired. Before we departed we could add two ikrs and a Corporal to our list. Besides the normal social events most of us encountered Juarez with the diversified attractions ii offered. We returned i , c- t Point and began our preparations for the remainde of ll e summer.

Of course there was a tedious week of instructor training to get us in the right frame of mind. One spirited group sallyed forth to Fort Dix to take over their jobs on the ATC Detail. It was a challenging job for those who got their first real command position and a great deal of work went into the preparation and presenta- tion of the lessons which were so important for the respon- sibilities at hand. The off-dut) hours were a good chance to relax. Meanwhile, bark at the ranch, there was a similar group . . . Fort Dix provided ... At Camp Buckner. Working on the other side of the fence now t he main job seemed to consist of herding the yearlings from one place to another. This select group was given an excellent opportunity to excel with the habitual PFT and work on the various training committees. Even though the) lived in separate barracks from the yearlings the were still in jeopard) of being thrown in the lake — a few made the grade. Most will agree that it was a fine detail with plenty of free time and good dragging. Back at the Rock . . . (nown Distanc But Rewarding The Work Began The looks on these new faces were strangely familiar. Remember, it wasn ' t too long ago? . . . There were the Beast Details. Much careful plan- ning and coordinating during I.T. week paid off with one of best Beast Details yet. At least that was the opinion of those who were on the detail. The task involved exten- sive work and much preparation: perspiration flowed freel) as the Detail made certain that every New Cadet was at the right place, at the right time, in the right uniform. The Second Class worked closel) with our classmates and took up a great deal (if the -hock of the hard work. Bui every- one managed to keep bus) from reveille until after the last dumb-whack was put to bed. It was after plebe taps that much of the work was done — shining equipment, planning for the next day. writing lesson plans and complaining. But even with the long hours and hard work it was a rewarding job for those who were in Beast . . . HP " Another important step in the Our Second Beast Barracks . . . For the second time. Most cadets think that one " Beast " is enough and those on the detail will be the first to agree.

As the days passed, the Beast Deta began to see the results of its effort «Vl i The Beginning of a New Year — Ring Weekend Even a piece of polished cement would look good, : . . . Our last academic year. The First event of real im- portance to the First Class was Ring Weekend. We finall) received the rings which we had heard so much about and waited so long to receive. We were so elated we packed Washington Hall to celebrate the affair with a banquet and a hop. But having a ring wasn ' t the same as having a diploma so we had to pick up the hooks again and go to it. This year offered main new experiences which we hadn ' t encountered before, one of which was . . . mM. H And after the Banquet . . . the Ring Hop. Yes, another bridge had Football Trips . . . . . First Class Privileges. It was hard at times to choose between studying and going to the movies, hut the theater usually managed to attract a sizeable group of those who were willing t » gamble on the nrxt day ' s writs. The class clubs with their TV sets and the gym with it;- squash and handball courts were other attractions dining evening call In quarters. nd ii was nice to be able to visil classmates ' imim in officers ' quarters in the evenings.

Planning for graduation. There were an endless num- ber of things to he done, but we enjoyed doing them because it meant the end was close at hand. The automobile show in December started off the job of picking a car. For some it was ii 11 eas) job; the) knew hat the) wanted. For others it was harder: they had to choose between new or used cars, sports or otherwise, large or small, expensive or more expensive. Choosing a car wasn ' t the onl) problem which confronted us though. We met with representatives from iks. life insurance companies and property insurance companies, to mention a few. It was hard to see how v would be able to make ends meet on a Shavetail ' s pay. A b •hunk of our meager finances went to . . . . . . Buying uniforms. The first of February found us in the east gym looking over the uniform display. It was a real job to secure the necessary items, get a good fil and tr to economize all at the same time. Somehow we managed to obtain all the required blues, greens and tans with the proper golds, brasses and silvers. Buying uniforms was cer- tainly an enlightening and a costly venture. When things seemed to pile up on our shoulders and the days began to drag we could always take off on a weekend — that is. if «i ' win- " pro.

By the time 30 May 1959 rolled around we had attended our last class at West Point, seen our last football game as cadets, written our last Monograph for the Social Sciences Department, and made our last aptitude rat- ings on the underclassmen. Many things remained to be done for the last time and this was our last June Week — our own June Week. Friends and relatives came from every- where and everything was in the usual June Week chaos and confusion. But no one seemed to worry about it because there was too much else to do. Parades, dragging, packing, hops, receptions, concerts, baccalaureate, and finally the culmina- tion of four years of blood and sweat — GRADUATION. From here we separated into 500 different paths to return onl) as alumni. The time from 5 Jul 1955 to 3 June 1959 was. if not four of the best years of our lives, at least four of the most memorable. 105 Millimeter Gun Howitzer The 105 millimeter gun howitzer might well be called the workhorse of World War II. The plit trail of this piece permitted greater eleva- tion without digging a trail pit. With this weapon came the Fire Direction Center which enabled the battalion to fire as a unit rather than as three separate batterie: greater range. towed by m i-ements in this weapon are its better recoil system, ccuracy and more reliable sights. Since it could be cles. it possessed good tactical mobility. 5cale Feet FOUR YEARS OF ' S9 ADMINI STRATION Retaining the traditional architecture of the Rid Thayer Hall emerged as a modern addition to West Point ' s academic facilities. When the horse no longer had any use on the battlefield, cadet instruction in Equita- tion was di countinued. The place of instruction, the Riding Hall, was still used, how- ever, for sports practice and drill during inclement weather. It was also used for park- ing during special days at the Academv. Most of the time, however, the Riding Hall served no useful function and stood empty. The idea of converting the Riding Hall I " an academic building resulted from an architectural competition in 1944. The purpose of the comp etition was to improve the facilities and develop West Point. Manx ears of discussion and designing follow- ed until the actual construction was finalh begun in 1956 A civilian firm was contracted, but the project was under the supervision of the A Look Inside. L 4= SO plicity of modern design Arm Engineers. One of the main difficulties encountered in the construction was the structural foundation. The area beneath the west side of the building was rock strata in some parts and marsh in others; consequently, steel piles had to be used to penetrate the marshy surface until (he were firmly embedded in the underlying rock. Dif- ficult) was found in constructing accesses to the building with the limited working space available. The construction methods used in this case were similar to those used in large cities where working space is also limited. The new building was constructed entirely within the Riding Hall and was made of structural steel framing with reinforced concrete. Tha er Hall, which consists of four floors, is certainly ultra-modern in design. The most unusual and unique facet of the new building is the parking on the roof of the building for the instructors and personnel. It is com- pletel) ail conditioned by four hundred ton units which receive the air through two tunnels underneath the first Hour. Over a million dollars worth of furniture is needed because of the main section rooms, lecture halls and the two auditoriums. All of the furniture, equipment, and color schemes used in the new building were the result of care- ful stud by an industrial firm under (he supervision of the Academy staff and faculty. Toda) the product f fif- teen ears of work is the beautiful Thayer Hall, standing maiesticalh on the west bank of lb.- Hudson River. Under the able guidance of the Academic Department, " Every cadet recites every day in every subject " became more than a cliche as the Battle of the Tenths separated us into sections and instilled in us respect and pride for the Thayer System. We were " goats, " we were " hives, " we were 92 I " pro, " we were " D, " — but we learned, despite our efforts. In the final analysis, we gratefully salute our unique hut highly effective s stem of education. But there is still another facet of our education. Awe- inspired bv The S stem. and initialK dumfounded h the multiplicit) of regulations, we were constantly aware of the guiding presence of the Tactical Department. Under the leadership of these officers, we gained essential knowledge. and were better-equipped for our work as a result of their sincere and devoted efforts. s » ' 3r !

Although we spent quite a few afternoon hours with the Office of Military Psychology and Leadership during Year- ling year, the items which are remembered most readily are usually Pavlov ' s dogs or the retroactive inhibitions of the cockroach. However, during Second Class Year, this strong right arm of the T.D. trained us in one of the fun- damental skills of the Army officer, the art of instruction. Through impromptus, prepared lessons and lectures, and frequent on-the-spot critiques, we came to appreciate the problems and responsibilities if our own instructors. Lead- ership was the keynote of First Class Year, and we again met the Department of MP L in this area. In retrospect, it is evident that this instruction was not only helpful during our four years at the cademy, but also necessary as a foundation for further instruction after graduation. ■ Row: Mr. Kress.

" Ready, Wrestle! " And Will we ever forget Plebe Gym? Following the after- mathematics class 440-yard dash, we were regularly sub- jected to the pleasantries of boxing, wrestling, gymnastics, and swimming. The next t hree years were quite a contrast, in spite of the PFT ' s and Obstacle Courses. We found in Yearling Year the values of team games. At the end of Second Class Year, we approached physical education from a different angle in the PIT course. Finally, as First Classmen, we instructed and supervised in the sessions that we had dreaded Plebe Year. Though sore muscles and limp limbs were an essential part of their course, to the OPE goes our gratitude for skills, ideas, and a state of mind that will last for a long time. First Row: Capt.

On alternate days, Military Engineering sought to oc- cup} " in idle time (?) with a storm of shear diagrams, moment diagrams, trusses, and influence lines — each one being designed to subtract from our already meager supply of tenths. On the WPR ' s and WGR " s. we saw the same problems . . . with different answers. But through all of the complaining, we reluctant!) admit that Military Art and Engineering added vital parts to our store of know- ledge. First Ho,,-. Maj. Minckler, RD; l.i. Col. Hammer. JE; Lt.

Although we spent time necessarily in the realm of theory, our contacts with missiles, explosives, guidance systems, and other aspects of armament served to clear up many misconceptions and stimulate added in- terest. Through this department, we gained added know- ledge and a new insight into the theoretical implications of automobile and armament. I ■■■ ■ Department of Physics and Chemistry When we were first introduced to the Department of Physics and Chemistry, we wondered when we would pos- sibly use the knowledge we were to learn. Then, as we searched for lost hydrogen, and ploughed through accele- ■ ration, relativity, and swarms of Beta rays, the mission of the Department took on new significance. After Mechanics. Electricit} and Ordnance, we realized that the Department of Physics and Chemistn had the job of teaching us would need in the future. And after graduation, ■ar passes, we will realize more and more the mi- ll ' the training we received from the Department - and Chemistrj in each assignment. First Row: Capt. Dickinson.

Department of Law Although the English Department is usually considered the source of creative writing, the Law Department has made greal progress in this area. Not even Shakespeare ' s characters could compare to Pete Zerria. the restaurant owner, or Mr. Repulsive, the widower. Civil law convinced us that " there is no logic to the law, " with constitutional and criminal law completing the maze of confusion and technicalities. No matter where the discussion began in the section room, it inevitably ended with the instructor, whose pocketful of loopholes was a trademark of the business. It was an enlightening experi- ence to listen as he would verbal!} dodge the question: " Is the Iaundr) liable, as bailee, to the cadet, as bailor, for damages on the latter ' s propert) due to gross negligence? " Even though we ma) never be lawyers, we learned the basic principles, and will always remember to endorse checks with a protective " " without recourse. " First Row: Maj. Collins, KJ.: Col.

Our sojourns through our respective towers of Babel were for the most part enjoyable, as many of us found the practical values of the course with frauleins. senoritas. and m ' amselles on summer leaves. It was a good feeling to be able to converse with the " natives " and get along in a strange country, not to mention the professional alue of fluenc) in a foreign language.

Department of Military Hygiene Although we often complained, we all know that with- out the services of the hospital and its staff, many a cadet would never have graduated from the Academy. Although the wary cadet was careful to avoid Ward 30 and its usually certain surgery, we came to respect the ability and respon- sibilit) that were characteristic of the entire hospital staff. Easy docs it; it ' s the only set that I ha 122 ■ith the hospil Intramurder and the flu take their toll. It did not matter if we had a sprained ankle, a broken arm, or a cold, we received the familiar " APCs and a lot of rest. " However, realizing that we. as cadets, were vet) prone to injury, we can sincerely say to the staff of the hospil " Well done. " 123 Majoi William H. Schempf, Band Director The United States Military Academy Band lias provided music for football rallies and games, formal and informal Imps, parades, and also for the main concerts which we have enjoyed so much. Whether we were marching to din- ner to their rendition of " Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom While " or passing in review to the stirring strains of " Sambre et Meuse. " we learned to appreciate and respect the Band ' s high standards of excellence in music. Life in these grej walls would not he complete without the contri- bution of the " Hellcats " at reveille. We pay tribute to these men. of the finest band — the United States Military Band.

Since this weapon bears a strong resemblance to present day pieces, it may be called the first modern cannon. The most important feature of this cannon was its hydro-pneumatic recoil system in which the tube absorbed the impact of the shot by sliding to the rear, thus keeping the piece stationary and owing as many as twenty rounds per minute to be fired. The am- munition used for this piece was made by precision machines which produced the first reliable shells and fuzes. ' JT9 ENJOYMENT THROUGH The military, academic, and athletic phases of a cadet ' s education make necessaril) large demands on his time. Few cadets, however, are satisfied with this sphere of endeavor, as illustrated In an active roster of more than fifty clubs and groups, with a range of activities that extends from de- bating and singing to sailing and sky-diving.

With careful, methodical planning the 1959 HOWIT- ZER began to grow in the Spring of 1958. both in the minds of the staff and on paper. By September of L958 the project had gained momentum, and it had also gained more people and more complications than a practice pre- game ceremony. In an effort to record accurately and completelj our four years a the Academy, hundreds of hours were spent in planning the details, writing volumes of material, soil- ing endless piles of photographs, soliciting advertising, and making the annual office-mow across the area of barracks. It would be too involved to attempt to thank all of those people who contributed to the HOWITZER, either the old stalwarts who never failed to produce, or the reliable part- time supporters who participated in our inadvertent " crash programs.

A record number of cadets have utilized the debate, in its strictest sense, " a formal contest of reasoned argu- ment, " to master the ability to speak publich in a logical. forceful, and pleasant manner. Varsity. Novice, and Plebe debaters, whether at the Academy or away at an American college or university, have found their faculties challenged in competition and their interests stimulated in varied sub- jects relating to the more concise debate topic. Possibly of equal importance, opportunities have been provided to compare notes, to analyze attitudes, and exchange ideas with contemporaries on the other side of Thayer Gate.

SCUSA . held from 3 to 6 December, was capably directed by Major E. R. Brigham. and his assistant. Captain H. T. Boland. Two hundred students represented some eighty colleges in the United States and Canada. The general purposes of the Conference were: To produce an informative examination and discussion of the national security policy of the United States. To provide an outstanding representation of college students with an appreciation of the complexities of govern- ment policy formulation. To broaden students ' contact with their contemporaries in an academic endeavor. The purpose of the Conference was unquestionabl) real- ized, with the result that SCUSA X gained recognition as the most successful conference in the histor) of the organi- play. OFFICERS.

Scale ' Feet THE WILL TO British Armstrong Cannon The British Armstrong breech loading rifle of 1854. was used successfully in the British Colonial Wars. This weapon possessed a greater degree of accuracy and a longer range than its predecessors. The tube was made of steel and was strengthened by placing wrought iron hoops over it. This cannon used ammunition coated with lead to facilitate engaging the shell with its rifling. For ten years, the breech loading system was used on this cannon, but many accidents caused by fault) manufacturing brought the muz- zle-loading system hack into use. ' S9 WIN TH ROUGH 176 As athletic director, the Colonel Earl H. " Red " Blaik. this season, completed his eighteenth year as head football coach at West Point, and his twenty-fifth year as a head coach in collegiate football. Besides his coaching duties, lie held the added distinction of Director of Athletics. In his eighteen years as a football coach, the Black Knights have compiled six undefeated seasons, and two national and Eastern Championships. Under his guidance, thirteen assistant coaches have risen to the rank of head coach, and twenty- five cadets have attained the honor of a berth on a number one Ail-American Team. Colonel Blaik ' s athletic career at West Point began when he entered with the Class of 1920. During his four years as a Cadet, he was engaged in baseball and basketball as well as football. He was the first Cadet in the history of the Vndeim to play against Navy in three different varsity sports. In his First ( " lass Year, he was chosen All-American end. and upon graduation was elected the outstanding athlete in his class. In 1946. Colonel Blaik was elected • " Coach of the ear " b) his fellow coaches throughout the country, an indication of his outstanding ability as a coach and unending devotion to the game. To the Long Grey Line he will always be tin " Coach of the Year. " 177 m Football Colonel Earl H. Blaik September days are perhaps the mosl hectic in the ear for cadets. With reorganization and readjustment to routine there is scarcely a free minute: however, almost every cadet finds a few minutes on his schedule to visit Clinton Field and watch football practice. This year the Corps saw a really new Rabble with the innovation of the ' Lonel) End Formation " . Coach Earl Blaik. in his eighteenth year as head coach. found a solid nucleus of lettermen headed by Captain Pete Dawkins. Harry Walters, and Bob Anderson in the backfield and such stalwarts as Bob Novogratz, Bill Rowe. Monk Milliard, and Ed Bagdonas in the forward wall. The depth, as usual, left much to be desired; however, hopefuls from last ear ' s strong plebe club and some second classmen with limited varsity experience filled out the squad. OPP.

Bob Novogratz displayed his trememdous de- fensive powers and agility by recovering two decisive Irish fumbles.

Minus Dawkins and Walters because of injuries, the Cadets fought to an unfortunate tie with the University of Pittsburg. The first half saw Army at the top of a 14-0 lead, but as the second half opened. Pitt concentrated on passing and connected for two touchdown aerials. Interceptions by both teams quench- ed any further scoring. The Houston heat proved to be the biggest enemy that Army was to face all year. Suffering under a humid 77 degrees temperature. Army was held to only 100 yards on the ground, but Joe Caldwell hit for 201 yards in the air. Half time saw a 7-7 tie; not broken until the final 54 seconds. Rice Colgate Coach Blaik played every man who dressed for the game in an effort to hold down the score, but the devastating Cadets could not be held back. Most of the ten touchdowns were made 1 the second and third stringers. Arm totaled 522 yards. holding Colgate to two first downs in the first half. After Bob Anderson had left the game with an injury, Dawkins took charge of the situation for three touchdowns. A spectacular 80 yard sprint, high lighted by some exceptional blocking, a run of 46 yards after a perfectly pitched aerial from Joe Caldwell, and a piledriver from 5 yards out. completed a perfect day. Andy shows his fori Villanova Steve Waldrop hit; pay dirt against Colga Caldwell sets to throw with fine protection up front. Dawkins, a full house, and then a six point flush. ( The cold, the flags, a capacity crowd, and the usual grandeur that accompanies the annual classic were at the stadium, as was the drive and determination in the Cadets that had left them undefeated for the first time since I ' M ' ). Navy was ready for Hawkins and Carpenter, so Joe Caldwell aptlj directed the attack toward An- derson. Walters, and Dun I si on the other side of the field from the " Lonesome End. " As usual, the spirit that has made this game THE game of the year, paved the way for spectacular plays all afternoon. Bob Novogratz made life miserable for the Middies by time and again breaking through to dampen their hopes. Excellent generalship by Joe Caldwell produced a well-balanced attack on both the g round and in the air. • I OPP.

Opening with a 62-0 rout of Columbia in New York, this pocket juggernaut returned home to play its best game and overwhelm Navy 33-0: and was not stopped for the remainder of the season. Cornell fell to another 33-0 score, and the next week brought a trip to Phila- delphia and a 56-0 win over Pennsylvania. Princeton was the first to cross the Army goal, but could not do it often enough, ending up on the short end of a 48-14 score. This was the last major obstacle to the champ- ionship, and after a slow first half, the lightweights finished off Rutgers to wind up an unbeaten season. The team was strong in both qualit) and quanity, boasting an able first string supplemented b unusual reserve strength. Quarterbacks Ralph Wensinger and Dave Luedtke directed seasoned and able backs in Doc Sutton. Denny Dice. Bob DeMont. and Jim Humphreys. The line, capably coached by Craig Randall and Fred Wilmoth, boasted such stalwarts as H. T. Eubanks. Dick Welch. John Simpson, and Bob Crawford; and proved too much for any of the six opponents.

Halfbacks Ray Raugh. Fred Daniloff, Nick Krawciw, and Paul Tomiczek were tough to get by. However, when the opposition was luck) enough to penetrate. Fullbacks Ted Simroe.

In the week preceding the game, three starters, Simroe. Farmelo. and Daniloff, were on the injured list; yet all week at practice the spirit of the team was undaunted. The final score — Army 2.

The season was barely under wa; before the club was plagued by injuries, something the) could hardly afford. The injuries and this lack of depth to the squad forced Coach Jack Riley to continually reshuffle his lineup.

Connie Boyle, Rush Yelverton. and Jim O ' Connell. Nordlie drew on a fairly large supply of up and coming players to fill out his team. Of those that saw collegiate competition this year were Hank Fisher. Bob Frey. Don Smart. John Woods, and Dick McNear. The team started off strong with 9-0 victories over Pennsylvania and MIT. Har- vard, the third team encountered, set back the squashers 7-2. After Christmas, the team blossomed into a smooth working group of racketeers, dropping only one match to Yale. 8-1. while chalking up seven victories. They went into the Navy match with a respectable 10-2 record, but losl a heartbreaker to the National Champion Midshipmen 6-3.

Pittsburgh, and Villanova awaited the squad as it formed at Shea Field for spring drills. The sited pre-season performers led the way in downing NYU and Boston in the opener. The thinclads then defeated a fine Harvard team with Pete Byrne, Jerry Betts. and Ron Salter all turning in outstanding performances. Then Yale and Pittsburgh fell prey before Delaney and Company nipped the Army Team by a single point in a triangular. A romp of the Air Force was little consolation for finish- ing behind Cornell. Navy, and Yale in the Heptagonals and for bowing to Navv again in the big one. Front Row: (Left to Right) Mgr. McElroy, JD; Palmer, JL; Abrahamson. J: Knebel. J A Jr.; Foster, PH; Adams.

Consistent performances in the field events combined with the rec- ord holders Dick Greene in the two mile and Bill Hanne in the 1000 yards run to create several unprecedented victories. Manhattan was vanquished for the first time as All-Americans Ed Bagdonas and Al Dorris went 1-2 in the 35 pound weight. Cornell was defeated for the first time at home as Hanne. Greene, and Keith Nance each set records. The long time nemesis. Harvard, was also bested for the first time at home as Dave Gray and Ron Salter produced a 1-2 combination in the 600 yard run. Another element of this outstanding season was the strength of the relay specialists Jim Adams. Pete Foster. Grant Schaeffer. Dick Healy. Jim McGinnis and Dick Knoblock. The fact that Bagdonas and Greene were undefeated in regular competition and Roesler, Hanne and Nance were pushed to second place only once demonstrates the quality which was characteristic of this team.

This was the first undefeated season for any Army Lacrosse team since 1910, and it was a singular triumph for Coach Jim " Ace " Adams, in this his first season with the Army Var- sity. The squad was compact and well-conditioned, and their desire to win built up momentum with every game. A smashing victory over Navy before a large June Week crowd at Michie Stadium put the finishing touches to a great team effort. National recognition was accorded West Point when seven Army players were named all-American with Don Tillar on the first team at defense. These First Classmen were invited to pla in the North-South All-Star Game. The graduation of five stellar mid-fielders and All- mti icati goalie Ray Riggan left some big shoes to be fill- ed before the ' .V) season.

Second only to academic instruction, the lessons learned from athletics are the most important phase of preparation for a Cadet ' s career as an officer. The omen. " Every man an athlete, " is indeed true, and for the majority of the Corps, the Intramural System is where these benefits are derived. The caliber of play is generally above the prep school level and the scope of competition is vast: however, the most remarkable attribute of the entire system is the fierce competitive spirit which each man Intramurals ' mmm A clean start. Fall is perhaps the best time of the year to travel and, for the tennis teams which ventured to the Nort Courts, the " great circle " route offered real beauty. Foot- ball and lacrosse dominated the contributions to the " walking rank " and even man- aged to bruise a few referees along the way. The track carnivals were the same, and if you were last in a heat you may have found yourself running in a different meet altogether. Three holes of golf in a day! This should be included in F. C. A. 223 I This couldn ' t be C O ' bie drives for a quick bucket Set for the clincher! Winter Each year when " gloom period " sets in and the " brown boy " meets you on the way home from class, the gym takes on a new look. The " voluntary " system of winter athletics ranges from water polo to boxing. It never occurs to you that you could swim until you find yourself doing wind sprints on the bottom side of the pool and wondering why ice hasn ' t formed on the surface. Boxing has a way of at- tracting Plebes and ofttimes the " pug " with the least flow- ing blood finds himself the champ. Twenty-four teams in each sport all aiming at the Banker ' s trophy gives one a quick glimpse of the vast s stem and the fierce competition. Spring When the last snow finally gives way to the new spring. a cadet ' s fane) turns, not to women, but. intramurals. The home stretch of the Banker ' s Trophy race is fiercely con- tested by the soccer. Softball, and cross-country teams, to mention a few. The week-day parades are supplemented by drill and the welcome relief to a long day is the trek to the far-flung fields of strife. As each contest becomes a statistic, the prospect of June grows brighter; and, in short order, the massive schedule of over 4000 contests, fitted into an already full schedule, becomes a past, but never to be for- gotten, experience. To block and parry the continual jabs which it invites, the OPE always turns to its strongest defenses — statistics ad quotem. So too, the Intramural System, in swelling the sick ranks to the size of Napoleon ' s column " advancing ' ' from Moscow, was the butt of many a cynic ' s best words. Even so, the scope and fierce competition cannot be denied. The lessons we all learned were not merely limited to the game, but moreover how to play your heart out, win or lose, and realize that today ' s game would figure much in tomorrow ' s career. The value of the character which was developed each season is not a tangible item but will only be realized " ... on other fields, on other davs ... " brisk 2.5 miles to you too!

Although fairly efficient breech loading can- nons and excellent muzzle-loading rifled guns had been developed by 1850, the ruggedness. mobility, and efficiency of this weapon made it a favorite in short range, broken terrain fighting such as the typical Civil War battlefield. In an emergency any metallic object available could, and might, be used for ammunition. The average gunner still preferred to use his eye-sight and instinct rather than the clumsy sights. 5cale-feet AND COLLEAGUES i The Corps of Cadets is divided into twenty-four com- panies, each having an approximate strength of one hun- dred men. This division into companies facilitates the organization and administration of all phases of cadet life. However, the individual company is much more than a formally-organized unit. Living together, working together. winning and losing together — the cadets of all classes merge to form a close-knit organization which takes pride in a job well done. Whether we were marching together, studying together, or competing as an intramural team, the four years " in the Company " provide many hilarious experiences and valuable memories that we will earn with us lone after graduation.

VI I The first time we heard the name, " Bunny-One " , we had an idea it referred to the traditional B-l plebe system — but those of us who ran across Randy and the operators of Beast ' s famous " Rangerland " weren ' t convinced. In no time at all ' 59 was adding its weight (no reflection, " Moose " ) to the successful drive to number one ranking in Corps Squad participation, a good share of the Intramurder vic- tories, and even a couple of drill streamers. At times our scholastic standing left something to be desired, yet we lost not one man in the adacemic quick-sands after plebe year. We met and defeated in detail three of the best Tacs in the business — " Stoneface " , ' " Happy Hal " , and " Major John " — breathed a sigh and struggled on when integration struck us; and through four f unfilled years, we never wasted a single good deal. Now our ranks are scattered. Long live the friendships born in old Beta Uno! HRST CLASS: (First Row) Darby.

The wheels of time rolled rapidly. From the first yell at the Navy game Plebe year, until the last cap was thrown at graduation, each member of " 59 in C-l added something to his own memories and the hearts of those around him, " Griney " and Mike received stars, Torry and his Brown Boy won out in academics. " Dish " remained " true blue " . " Geef " received a nickname, Larry became a boxer, " Sambo " and Jay explored the pipes. Mac and Nick made Staff. " Ho " Niell and Charlie stayed loose, " Pebbles " kept smiling. " Su- per-Mayers " gained muscles. " Braun " mastered German. Lew survived Bussian. Gene sweated nothing, and " Wolf " lost weight. The past is now memory — the future lies ahead. X 4 M I) l Yeagley, .11 ' : Lewis, .IV II: Cald- well, 00; (Second Rou i DeRoma, JG; Robinson, TA; Donahue, T.I: Cahera-e.

' na We entered these hallowed halls a hefty crowd of over thirty, and after the required gestation period leave a some- what diminished crew of less than twenty sterling individuals. Individuality is perhaps the key-note of our four years here. Containing the exuberance of Dog One proved to be quite a job. and it took two Captains, a Major and a Lieu- tenant Colonel to do it. We sired four tacs in four years, and it seems that the Office of Brigade S-3 is the haven for battle-scarred and retired ex I)-l tacs! We generally had a rapid turnover of roommates, prac- tically every one of us lived with at least six different room- mates over the four year period. Such diversified elements have been an advantage . . . two of our crowd will become brothers-in-law and the rest of us take with us a wealth of experience and an intimate knowledge of our cohorts-in- arms. Of course, to the underclass, we leave the problems of celibate life in the Corps! FIRST CLASS: [First Row) Tyler, ES; Buell, WC; Howard, FI; Kendall. DS; Lidy, 1: Callaghan, Y.

The most surprising achievement of this motley crew is indicated by the appearance of their pictures in the 1959 Howitzer. The rabble of ardent politicians, zealous jet jock- eys, indescribably ignorant goats, sullen rebels, noisy Yank- ees. Hygiene turnouts, fanatic door kickers and window smashers rolled through the T.D. and crushed the A. D. in a surprising display of co-operation. Their only defeat came from the hands of a New York hotel that deemed their party — a small one — too noisy. From chaos came order and from association came lasting friendship as work and play passed the time away with tremendous speed. Vcni. vidi, we graduated. FIRST CLASS: (First Row) Lhotak, (..I: Cohen.

THE END OF THE French 1750 Cannon The French 1750 Cannon was typical of the artillery used in all the campaigns of Frederick the Great, the American Revolutionary War and many other Eighteenth Century battles. Because of its heaviness, it had little tactical mobility and could seldom be extricated after a lost battle. The trunions with which this cannon was cast. made it possible to effect elevation changes by moving only the tube itself. The improved trail permitted towing by gun teams. Solid shot. grape and cannister (containers of musketballs I were the main types of ammunition used in this piece. 5ca e r eet BEGINNING Four years of exploits, adventures, anecdotes, and war stories melt into one more integral part of our past. But the unforgettable acquaintances and warm friendships which grew during our short stay here will serve to keep our memories vividly alive for many years to come. The room- mate, the classmate, the hive, the goat — each one a friend and a comrade-in-arms as we take our place in that Long Line. As a group, and as individuals, we ma be justl) proud of our record. It will continue to grow, as the Class of ' 59 continues to grow and scatter over the globe. But the invisible cohesiveness. born during our four years together, and indelibly stamped on each of us. will strengthen our unity and live on throughout our lives.

Ed will be remembered as the fellow who could get the job done well with plenty of time left over to plunk on the guitar, or just sit back and tell war stories.

On the other hand, the Natural Sciences offered him an intriguing challenge. After hearing about the Sputniks, his goal was to be first to land on the Moon.

Editor SINCERE AND GRATEFUL THANKS TO OUR 1450 Cannon The Burgundian 1450 Cannon was one of several cannons captured from Charles the Rash. Duke of Burgundy, by the Swiss in the battles of Cranson (1475) and Moret 1 1477 1, and was used effectively by the Swiss in many battles. This small caliber weapon was towed by its crew from one position to another on the battlefield. Its main disadvantage was its rolling backwards from the recoil of a shot: consequently it had to be relaid after every round was fired. Representing Many Facets of American Life During a span of over sixt) years, each HOWITZER staff has attempted to publish as complete and thorough a biograph) of the graduating class as possible while main- taining the high quality that has characterized editions in the past.

A CONCEPT OF SCIENCE Five years ago, The Martin Company con- ceived a unique undertaking in the field of pure science which grew out of a belief that our own and our country ' s resources in crea- tive scientific research must be greatly enlarged and cultivated. We believed that the country — and the Com- pany—that concentrates on short-range ma- terial achievements, without a deep concern for the creative source of tomorrow ' s even greater achievements, will have no tomorrow. It is now three years since that belief motivated management ' s action with the foundation of a program in pure research. Known as the Research Institute of Advanced Study, RIAS is now a substantial organization staffed by scientists who are working in many fields, including theoretical physics, biochemistry, metallurgy and mathematics, without short- range applied research requirements. Today, the increasing appeals to industry and the nation for accelerated activities in basic research give the RIAS story a special signifi- cance. For creative research in pure science is the true life source of our technological security — the " seed bed " from which our national strength shall continue to grow.

A ballistic guided missile, sergeant for precision flight to target. New guidanc cannot be detected in operation. NEW SERGEANT MISSILE WILL GIVE U.S. ARMY GREATER STRIKING POWER Development of the new sergean i bal- listic guided missile is a timely reminder that our nation ' s security requires accu- rate, highly mobile tactical weapons for ground defense as well as the more spec- tacular intercontinental missiles so much in the news. In limited or global war, our frontline troops need the support of such a weapon to crush an aggressor ' s attack long before he comes within the limited range of present artillery. The sergeant missile is the answer . . . a ready-to-go solid propellant weapon with the ability to carry a nuclear war- head, a truly important contribution to the security and retaliatory power of our ground forces. In defense, the powerful sergeant will furnish U. S. Army com- manders with mobile firepower that will be ready in minutes to strike at any attacking force. On offense, this highly accurate weapon can join tactical air units in destroying enemy fortifications. The sergeant is being developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology for the Army. In preparation for production, Sperry has been working with JPI. since the beginning stages of design and de el- opment. Complete production of the weapon system is assigned to the Sperrj Utah Engineering Laboratory. Sperry contributions to the U. S. missile program range from complete missiles to major sub-systems such as radars, automatic inertial guidance sys- tems, electronic countermeasures, and automatic missile checkout systems.

PONTIAC NAMED CAR -OF -THE -YEAR " Pontiac with wide-track wheels is the best combination of ride . . . handling . . . performance and styling of any ' 59 car- The Editors of Motor Trend Magazine In making its annual automotive award, the staff of Motor Trend Magazine, leading automotive publication, tests and evaluates all new cars. Here are quotations from the April 1959 issue: " The stability of the 1959 Pontiac is the outstanding auto- motive advance of the year. Everyone considering a new car should experience it. " " It ' s the best balanced passenger car in America. We firmly believe that in moving the wheels farther apart, to develop the widest stance of any American car, Pontiac has created an entirely new sense of balance and handling security. " " Pontiac ' s lines are clean, simple and beautiful. It has a fleet look, a trim appearance. The wide wheel design contrib- utes greatly to its over-all integrated styling. Any comparison with narrower track cars readily shows the difference. " " For the economy-minded, an efficient new engine. The new 420E Tempest economy engine offers remarkable per- formance along with exceptionally high mileage while oper- ating on regular grade gasoline. " " Pontiac is again tops in performance, based on our ex- tensive road testing. Acceleration is outstanding, yet the engine is unusually quiet and smooth. " This high acclaim and important award from Motor Trend is another of the many exclusive selling advantages enjoyed by Pontiac dealers. THE ONLY CAR WITH WIDE-TRACK WHEELS Wheels are five inches farther apart. Tins widens only the stance, not the car. Pontiac takes a better grip on the road, hugs tighter on curves and cor- ners. Sway and lean disappear, ride is smoother, balanced, steadier. Handling is easier. You drive with a new confidence, a comforting security.

Let ' s count the months of manufacturing, the skill, precision and care that went into each of the thou- sands of parts. Let ' s count the brain-power, the en- gineering talents of the brilliant men at work . . . the modifications and re- finements in design . . . the " break- throughs " that had to be made. Let ' s count all the way back to the first gleam of concept in a scientist ' s probing, inventive mind. And let ' s not forget to count the ad- ministrative control, the guidance, the coordination and planning that go into these complex projects. There ' s a new name for it Such involved systems of engineering and automation demand an entirely new concept of planning, research, specialized administration and techni- cal coordi nation. It is called " system management. " It places complete re- sponsibility for every phase of a giant project in the hands of one company or group of companies. It takes tremendous resources. In manpower. In administrative capacity. In facilities. And that is why ITT has been selected for projects of the high- est importance. The ITT System oper- ates and maintains the DEW Line, and is managing the production of a new world-wide electronic control sys- tem ingeniously conceived by the Stra- tegic Air Command for its operations. And ITT is deep in many other vi- tal projects. In industry, too, there are " countdowns " Large industrial projects, too, need system management. Vast communi- cation networks, for instance . . . link- ing continents through " over-the- horizon " microwave... world-wide air- navigation systems... the development of automation in industrial processes. System management has great po - tential. And ITT is equipped to put it to work ... to assume full responsi- bility for complete system manage- ment projects anywhere in the free world.

S. military has been equipped with at least one Vought weapon. This year there are three on active duty. Vought missiles have been unit equipment since 1953. The Crusader carrier fighter in 1956-57 won the Thompson and Collier Trophies and registered the first official faster-than-sound crossing of the United States. Electronics systems in these and other complex weapons were, by 1958, largely company-developed, and to an increasing extent, company-produced. To this capability, Vought has added contract responsi- bilities in the field of military astronautics. This is breadth of experience. There is depth of experience, too, that sets Vought apart as a " regular. " Vought ' s professional men are veteran weapon system managers. They helped write today ' s high standards of compatibility between weapon, support equipment and operational environment. Vought owns and operates outstanding R D facili- ties. A 3,800-mph wind tunnel is one recent result of the company ' s doubled and redoubled investments in physical aids. Vought engineers were the first in the industry to recognize Reliability, itself, as a distinct engineering group function. Priority attention to this matter led to a record of 800-plus flights by one missile type. Chance Vought has delivered the most advanced weapons in a complete, combat-ready package.
