Shortly after graduation Colonel Thayer spent five years in Europe making a detailed stud of the military institutions of the Creat Powers. In France he gave careful consideration In the organization, curriculum and methods of instruction of L ' Ecole Polytechnique. by which he was very much im- pressed. Upon his return to the United States he was ap- pointed Superintendent of the Military Academy by President Monroe. This appointment provided him with the opportun- il to apply his own modifications to a school that was suffering from Congressional apathy and official incom- petence. Colonel Thayer began his reconstruction of the Academy with a number of changes designed to develop seriousness of purpose. The new orientation he gave the Academy produced more capable leaders who were willing and trained to lead our country through the most critical periods of its history. The innovations Colonel Thayer so firmly instilled in the Academy remain basically unchanged today; for he believed in strict discipline, broad culture and professional knowl- edge. He is justly called ' ' The Father of the Military Academy. " Cadets in the past and today. _ BENJAMIN L. E. BONNEVILLE Class of 1815 — Exploring Early in his life. French-horn Bonneville seized upon llie vision of exploring the uncharted regions heyond the Greal Divide: through his persistence he was eventually given a leave of ahsence to accomplish thai singular dream. In 1!!. ' 2. with one hundred and fift men. he began an exploration that was to isolate him from civilization for four long years. During his four car sta in the West he explored and mapped much of the Rocky Mountains in tho Southwest of our country. He was the first man to map the headwaters of the Green River area in present clay Utah. Also, he was the first to lead a Westbound wagon train through South Pass, which Fremont " discovered " ten years afterward. Bonneville later served with distinction and honor in the Seminole and Mexican Wars. In 1861 he was retired with the brevet rank of Brigadier General in recognition of his Ions and faithful service. Exploring out West. L GEORGE WHISTLER Class of 11519 — Engineering George Whistler, father of the artist, found the oppor- tunity to apply his abilit) when the War Department sum- moned him to help the B Railroad expand its rail system through difficult country between the Potomac and the Ohio. To solve effectively the many problems he en- countered, he developed a system of horizontal contour lines which enabled him to survey and map the region. His system has now been universally adopted in mapping. Whistler also developed several fine locomotives, and supervised the ((instruction of the first passenger railroad system in this country. When his fame spread to foreign shores. Czar Nicholas of Russia invited him to build a railroad between St. Peters- burg and Moscow. He went to Russia with full hopes and great ideas, and even the numerous obstacles placed in his path by incompetent officials were insufficient to thwart his diligence. Whistlers last effort was given to Russia. where he ended a brilliant career. 12 ABNER DO!

His greatest contribu- tion, however, was that for which he is enshrined at the Baseball Hall of Fame — he was the originator of a sport that has become an integral part of our American tradition. The national pastime today and in the past. 13 ROBERT E. WOOD Class of 1900 — Business The career of Robert E. Wood, ex-president of the board l Sears, Roebuck and Company, has been characterized by his execution of challenging tasks. The high sense of duty he applied in the business field, combined with an exactness and thoroughness that went far beyond mere mechanical efficiency, is best exemplified by his own words: " Business must account for its stewardship not only on the balance sheet, but also in the matters of social responsibility. " ' General Wood aided in the construction of the Panama Canal from 1905 to 1910. holding the positions of Quarter- master. Chief Quartermaster, and Directors of the Panama Canal Railroad. In World War I he went to France as a Colonel in the Rainbow Division to serve on the General Staff at Choumont. He was later recalled to the United States to become Acting Chief Quartermaster, after which he was Director of Storage and Traffic of the Arm). In 1955 General Wood was elected to the Merchandise Mart Hall of Fame. He was cited for developing the concept of the suburban shopping center, for his introduction of American mass distribution techniques into international commerce, and for his enlightened outlook on labor-man- agement relations. A result of General Wood ' s ingenuity. 14 doi glas i i;nu i; Class of 1903 Militarj We immediately associate General Mac Arthur with mili- tarj excellence: hi brillianl record reflects a lifetime " I devoted service and outstanding leadership. During World War I. after helping to Eorm the glorious " Rainbow 1 i i - sion " , he became the youngest Division Commander of l he U. S. Army. After that conflict he became Superintendent of West Point, and then Chid of Staff of the United States rm again the youngest officer ever to hold these posi- tions. Although be retired from the American Army lo assume the leadership of the 1 ' hilippine Army, to which he contributed considerably, he was recalled by the United States at the outbreak of World War II. As Commander of the Far East Theater he was instrumental in the successful termination of an arduous campaign. The war ended, and General Mac Arthur assumed the responsibility for the dif- ficult and delicate task of rebuilding ever) aspect of war-torn Japan, a task he accomplished, as the Japanese people will affirm, with the success that characterizes genius and love of humanity. The Congressional Medal of Honor and innumerable decorations from other countries are tangible recognition of his dedicated life. He has also been rewarded by the love and respect of mankind — a far greater tribute to a great man. 15 T LESLIE R. GROVES Class of 1918 — Science and Engineering The " Atom Man " is the appropriate nickname of the key figure behind the famous World War II Manhattan Project. It was General Groves who directed the highly secret develop- ment of the most powerful weapon ever employed in combat. General Groves began his active supervision of the project in September of 1942. and in less than three years the forces under his command had developed, produced and assisted in the delivery of the devastating weapon. That the Atomic Bomb was a brilliant success is evident, for in only one week it accomplished its primary mission of terminating the costly war in the Pacific Theater. This suc- cess was well deserved, for the concerted efforts of some 600.000 Americans, working under the Manhattan Engineer District, had made it possible. And carrying the responsibil- ity for their success or failure, and for the ultimate con- sequences to all mankind, was General Groves. Quiet, good-natured, he has no doubt played an instru- mental role in shaping our future. The extent of his in- fluence will be realized only when Man learns to use the boundless energy of the atom for the ultimate good of hu- manity; this has always been the fervent hope of General Groves. A nuclear reactor and reaction. 16 fl Administration And Academics Administration and Academics JACK W.

Davidson lias been the Superintendent of the Military Academy Eor the past lour sears. We ol llie ( ' lass ol I ' HiM have seen him mosiK as a hard-working Superintendent; however he has excelled in arious other fields, including coach and teacher. Following graduation in ' )2 . ' " Gar " began his eleven season coaching career as assistant coach from l ' »27 through 1932. During this period he doubled first as an assistant coach and plat i leader of the 1st Engineers and later as an assistant coach and Instructor in the Department of Philosoph) al est Point. In I ' ' . ' 52 he was selected Head Football Coach, the youngest in Army ' s history. He filled this position until June. 1938. As a soldier, he participated in thirteen major campaigns, as an engineer in World War II and with the infantry in Korea. By commanding the Army ' s Command and General Staff College at Fort Leaven- worth. Kansas, prior to becoming Superintendent of the Military Academy, General Davidson shares with General W. D. Connor. USMA " 97. the distinction of having commanded two of the Army ' s more important schools — another merit on a distin- guished record. Superintendent of the United States Military Academy Brigadier General Charles W. G. Rich Brigadier General Charles W. G. Rich is a new figure in the Chain of Commandant. Assuming the duties as the forty-eighth Commandant of Cadets, he is responsible for the command and supervision of the I nited States Corps of Cadets. General Rich graduated from the Military Academy in 1935, and an early assignment placed him at Schofield Bar- racks. Hawaii, during the Japanese attack of the islands. In 1943 he was assigned to the Parachute School and soon be- came commander of the Second Parachute Training Regi- ment at Fort Benning. Ordered to Europe in late 1944. he served first on the staff of the 6th Army Group and later as Deputy Chief of Staff of the XXI Corps. After serving in Korea he was assigned as Assistant Division Commander of the 101st Airborne Division, the position he held prior to assuming his duties as Commandant of Cadets. Commandant of Cadets Brigadier General William W. Bessell. Jr. Brigadier General William W. Bessell. Jr.. was appointed to the position of Dean of the Academic Board in the Fall of 1959. In this capacity he is responsible for the adminis- tration of the academic system and for the maintenance of the high educational standards of the Military Academy. His assignments as a member of the Corps of Engineers include duty in the Office of the Chief of Engineers. War Department General Staff. Army Director of the Joint War Plans Committee, and Commanding General of the Antilles Department. In addition to the Bachelor of Science awarded him l West Point in 1920. General Bessell holds a Civil Engineer- ing degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and he has been graduated from the rm Engineer School and the Command and General Staff College. As a graduate of the Academy, and having held the posi- tion (if Professor of Mathematics from 1947 to 1959. General Bessell i- thoroughly familiar with his newly-acquired duties, and he has ahead) done much to maintain the high stand- aids of the Academy. 22 - First Row: Col. Gregory, JB, Ureas.) ; Col.

They are the men who were collectively responsible for our entire edu- cation in the field of academics while at the Military Acad- emy. Through their leadership, we were able to attain the educational background necessary for an Officer in the Army today. Not only are they outstanding educators but also fine officers, who have served as an example for us all. Although as Plebes these men were mere names to us. now they are individuals who we all know and respect. To them we extend our deepest gratitude for their unselfish contribution to helping us better ourselves. i Colonel Charles J.

Mathematics is certainl) one " 1 tin- most important subjects taught to us during our four years here. We can all remember the clays when we practically had to put our names down in green chalk, but eventual!) the mysteries of mathematics were cleared up and we could see through the fog of integral signs. The Math Department was among the first to make us cultivate the attribute of thinking and working on our feet; suddenl) we would find ourselves with pointer in hand explaining the principles of a front board which we had derived by an almost occult process.

And waste its sweetness on the desert air. No one would be so absurd, of course, to think that there is any resemblance between a country churchyard, which inspired the poem above by Thomas Gray, and West Point: nevertheless the efforts of the English Department were directed at making us true erudites, so that we would not waste our potential sweetness. And it was after taps — writing numerous letters — that our literar) efforts began to shine. Although Plebe year was devoted mostl) to fundamentals, we began to appreciate this valuable training during Year- ling year. It was then that we were introduced to the mys- teries of poetry and Moby Dick, affectionatelj known as " The Monster. ' " During First Class year lie discussed the scientific, cultural and ethical problems thai have constantly challenged our civilization. English was not the easiest course, but it was one of the most rewarding — because it made us more aware of life. 31 Pat Holland is giving a presentation while Bax AAowery and Jack Elder Captain Tyree directs his French Class in conversation. The Department I of Foreign I Languages The Department of Foreign Languages was one depart- ment for which we really had to think: the only trouble was that we had to think in a foreign language. Not only did we study the simple grammar and vocabulary of a language, lull we studied the countries so thoroughly that we began to think like real natives. The Department of Foreign Lan- guages utilizes the most efficient methods to start us think- ing in i nil new tongue: the lectures, the laboratory periods, and especially the classroom discussions, gave us the oppor- tunity we needed to develop our foreign minds. It was indeed a gratifying feeling to be able to undertand better another people and their customs. By gearing our minds to their atmosphere and getting an insight on how another part of the world lives and thinks, we broadened our outlook in a most profitable manner. 32 Bill Chase demonstrates his mastery of a foreign language.

Plebe year " Topo " was always one of the more interest- ing courses on our schedule. To an officer, no matter which branch he is in. proficiency with maps will always be a necessity. And the basic principles of the instruments we finally learned to manipulate are the basis of many other instruments used in the military. The strong, cold winds of Tropin Point and the " ratty " back from the Field House were just sidelights of the course. We could hardly help but appreciate how much of that initial training saw practice use at Camp Buckner when we were centrally located three miles from nowhere and trying to find home. Yearling year we were introduced to the T-square and triangle by the Graphics Department. " Squint and print, " as we called it. taught us not to shudder at the sight of a blueprint, but to look at the right place and then start our project.

We immediately began to wonder why Yearling year is known as ' sack out " year. Remember the first big lab in chemistry when we produced H 2 S in tremendous quan- tities? The first hour produced the gas and then " ran like " 60. " How the first hour cadets pitied the second hour cadets, who entered the din coughing, choking and sneezing. The Physics labs were much more pleasant and peaceful. There we had fun doing things such as shooting balls out of a gun, plucking strings, and so on. Although the seventy or eighty per cent errors of our experiments did not exactly prove the laws being studied to be correct, the practice we gained by drawing conclusions from observed data aided greatly our thought processes. The basics of the physical and chemical laws taught so well by the Department of Physics and Chemistry stood us in good stead throughout our cadet careers: and thev will continue to do so in the future. 37 First Row: Capt.

Department of Military Psychology and Leadership Joe Wiley giving a class in the hand salute. ment arv logy ?hip The Military Psychology and Leadership Department, a ramification of the Department of Tactics, presented three separate courses over the period of our three upperclass years. The fall of Yearling year the Psychologj portion of the course presented to us a " Study of Human Behavior. " Ii attending the interesting elasses and taking the very comprehensive writs, on which many of us successful]) used the ' " clock system " of answering questions, we hecame more aware of the prohlems of human behavior. The second phase of the course. Militarj Instructor Training, came in the spring of Second Class year. It was then that we learned the art and science of presenting classroom instruction through actual presentations. As the course pro- gressed, each of us learned to appreciate the less obvious complications of being an instructor. By the end of the course we found that we had mastered the fundamentals of instruction. Later during New Cadet Barracks or in Arms units, we wire to apply fruitfully the techniques that had been taught to us through experience. The Leader- ship course of First Class year completed the series of courses: here we analyzed the complexities of effective leadership. The Department of Military Psychology and Leadership provided us with many attributes and qualifications of good leaders and with the knowledge essential to our continued development as future officers. poop " in Leadership. 39 Department of Mechanics - Phil Croel in the midst of a Solids lab.

" We found il to he true, hut the more we studied il the less we seemed t ■ . understand it. The Thermo labs proved an interesting respite of the course. We soon learned to decipher the hidden meaning of (he main cycle diagrams. The Fluid- phase of the course found us. among other things, estimating the fuel needs for heating a building: for the benefit " I the classes to follow, the spec answer is sixteen tons of number nine coal. In strengths of materials we learned the limit of the amount of poop we could cram into our little brains without an eruption.

Department of Electrical Engineering The beginning of the Electrical Engineering course intro- duced us to the ever-famous Ohm ' s Law. which states the E=IR; sometimes. The majority of us speced only the E=IR portion, forgetting the sometimes. When mystery hour ( Power I rolled along, we began slipping steadily down- ward, gaining momentum as the term-end exams approached. Those of us who survived were feeling like our old selves once more; after all, the second term could not be worse than the first! This was the attitude with which we met the interesting deviations from Circuits and Power. Communica- tions and Nuclear Physics. Contrary to our logic, the tradi- tional Juice adage proved to be true: before Christmas the upper sections understand the Juice Course, after Christmas only the instructors understand the course, after Spring Leave, no body knows what is going on. Even though for many cadets electricity still remains some mysterious force that lights our looms when we flip on the switch, the ma- jority of us thank Colonel Bartlett and our instructors for giving to us a basic understanding of electrical phenomena. 42 Capt.

Second Class year we re- ceived a necessary background in Geography. History and Government, and bv the end of the year most cadets had acquired the elusive art of being able to answer satisfactor- ilv any ambiguous essay question. Not to be outdone, the department successfully counter-attacked by introducing us to the WFR: eighteen units of sheer horror in two hours. First Class year we continued building on our background with Economics and National Security Problems, and the climax of two years of work came with a course in Inter- national Relations.

With an eye to practical application some men tried to reform the Tactical Department — but found out to their dismay that the Blue Book and Elementary Law were obviously not written by the same person. Others applied their knowledge to more promising activities and laughed themselves into deficiency bv trying to explain the legal com- plications of such reputed citizens as Phil Sophical. Geal Lebel and Frankie Fildboner. By the end of the first semes- ter, the expression " throw the book at him " became a phrase of ominous significance, and most of us were armed with a copy of MCM with which to do it. The legal concepts we acquired from the Law Depart- ment have helped us to appreciate the many aspects and im- plications of the subject, and the insight and understanding imparted to us have been an asset to the broadening of our professional knowledge. 47 .

Principles and theory everyone thought were to be forgotten gradually were re-discovered in the light of prac- tical application and writs. When things became prett) desperate we always had at least one recourse, as one in- structor always reminded us: " ' When in doubt, differenti- ate! " Those of us who were fortunate enough to take auto- mobiles first had unfair advantage on the rest of the class at the car show — no one could fool us. As a matter of fact, we knew everything about cars except how to pay for them. Ordnance was one course where every man gained some knowledge, right from the first man in the lii-t section to the anchor man. Looking to the possibilities of the future, the Ordnance Department offered us a comprehensive course in the most modem weapons. We profited greatly by being given a degree of technical proficiency and theoretical knowl- edge necessary for every officer. 51 Mr. Lewis leads " Happy Hours Office of Physical Education ick Keating and Gino McLaughlin watch performance in The objective of the Office of Physical Education is to instill in the cadet a strong desire for physical fitness.

From the mile run after Mathematics class to the gym and plebe wrestling, swimming, gymnastics and, oh yes boxing, through the hurrying to a social science class after handball, volleyball, squash, or even unarmed combat, we learned to enjoy par- ticipation in all sports.

Throughout our four ears at West Point we have been told that an officer must look out for the welfare of his men. Through lectures we fully realized that the unit commander is certainly not the onl) one int erested in the health of his men; he has at his call the benefits of the care and training of the Medical Corps. Since the combat fitness of the in- dividual soldier is necessarih ol great importance, the Medi- cal Corps, with its various branches of research and develop- ment, plavs an intrinsic part in the benevolent and efficient use of any Army unit. We aren ' t M. D. ' s now. but we know that the finest medical care is available for us and the units we will In- privileged to lead. Since the concept of the battlefield is so rapidl) changing, medical responsibility i weighing more and more on the shoulders of the unit commander. It is comforting to know thai we will have a unit like the Medical Corps behind us to help and enlighten us. 54 i ene U. S.

From Reveille on our first morning in Beast Barracks to Graduation Parade uc were intimateK associated with the I .S.M.A. Band.

As cadets we could use almost any of the multitude of interesting displays that the Museum had available. When it moved into Thayer Hall, its diligent staff laid before us a quite comprehensive history of the military profession. Through these excellent displays we began to appreciate military art even more, for they proved to be an effective correlation between the theory of the classroom and the actual representation of the conditions under which our predecessors fought and died. We are thankful for the generous assistance which the Museum has given us, and we are indebted to the people of its staff for their ever-readiness and willingness to aid us in our " 6.0 scrimmages " with the Academic Departments.

That is the " why " of the First Battle Group. In Plebe year we started playing on terrain boards, with Sergeant Pacetti philosophizing. Yearling year we had platoon tactics and by Second Class year we were jockeying companies around the battlefield under the critical eyes of the battle-educated officers and men of the First Battle Group. During First Class year we were given a series of lectures by learned men who were willing to show us what we would have to be — not just officers but the best officers. We owe many thanks to these men for giving us their knowledge and experience. Somedav it may mean the difference between victory and defeat. First Row: Maj. Flynn. TH: Lt. Col. Spears, T; Lt. Col.

Caldwell threw, and the line charged like a herd of hulls. Carpenter set a record by catching nine passes. The names of Jezior and Ozwandel rang over the speaker after every tackle. Coach Dale Hall was hailed for his efficiency in using the fearsome lonely end attack. The combination of Anderson and Waldrop ran wild through gaping holes. Left end Don Usry showed the troops he was going to do a lot of catching. Our fumbles and mistakes set up ILLINOIS time and again, in this 20-14 defeat. Bob Anderson was hurt that day : that was the beginning of a long season of reverses. The powerful Illini were bent on overcoming the low ebb of their fortunes after a opening loss to Indiana. When b ig Steve was also injured we took to the air. We put the pressure on again and again, but Bill Burrell and his mates fought fur- iously. Six hundred First Classmen cheered the troops on, and Bob Oswandel played the finest game turned in bv an Army lineman all year. Usr) tied Carpenter ' s week-old rec- ord with nine receptions.

N A V Y 350 On rhe ground It was a rainy clay, but before it was over the weather was not to be the only cause for disappointment. The team just didn ' t click, nor could it get an effective attack rolling, and NAVY was out for blood. Our passes were one of our chief headaches. The ball just never seemed to be in the right place at the right time; the Corps had few things to cheer about. It was gratifying to note the appearance of Jim Dougalas, the man who made the ' B " squad his per- sona] club. Playing hi last game, taped from thigh to ankle. Roll Anderson turned in a heart-warming performance. He blocked, tackled, and ran. his spirit undaunted to the end. When the game had ended the score on the board was left behind in Philadelphia, but the Corps and the team carried away a burning resolve that next year our revenge would indeed be sweet. 351 The 150 s opened their third season with nineteen return- ing lettermen and a group of promising third classmen up from " C " squad, hut injuries hurt the team ' s potential before the season got under way. Army rolled over Rutgers and Columbia in its first two games. 28-0 and 26-0. At Annapolis the team suffered its only defeat 0-26 to a revenge-seeking, powerful Navy team. The next two games were easy wins over Cornell (19-8) and Pennsylvania (31-01. The little Rabble finished by smashing Princeton 46-18. Except for the right side of the line, the First Class held down the first team with Captain " T v Eubanks and Dick Mclnerney on the left and Nick Rowe, Manuco Hildalgo, and Joe Dean at the center. Dock Sutton. Greg Clement. John Young, and I ■ m i i Dice made a winning hackfield. Paul Cerjan, Joe Fortier, Mark Lowry. and Frank Thompson formed the nucleus of the second line.

Coach Joe Palone, the speed and leadership f Captain Phil Chapped, the deadl) scoring punch oJ center Forward Lee Farmelo, and a tremendous team effort gave ns mir hesl record in man years. B continual!) threatening the opponent s goal, the determined offense, composed of our potential All-American Lee Farmelo, Berl Spivy, l ' e Powell, Captain Phil Chappell and Dave Hogarth, managed lo keep ll pponents on the defense during most oJ the game. However, when the opposi- tion did gain control of the hall, we called on our ver) cap- able backfield, which was directed l goalie Jack Fanning and composed bj backs Kizer Bazan, Hank Watson, Bill Ogden, Jack Dewar, and Fred Daniloff. PI 1! Try and catch me! As the record indicates, these men er skillfull) com- bined their efforts to form an outstanding team and an ex- cellent season that was climaxed with a bid to pla in the National Soccer Tournament. The onl) flaw in an otherwise perfect record came in the last game of the season when a scored its second goal in the second overtime period to w in the game 2-1. 365 Swimming Vfter a " not-too-promising " start, the swimming team, under the direction of our new coach, Jack Ryan, had a win- ning season. The strength of the team was in the experienced hands of the free-stylers and backstrokers. e had two back- strokers back for t hi season: Spike Sanders and ,la lc- Cann. Pete Rare, team captain, was a strong relay and 100- yard man. Chuck Sollohub, elected captain for the 1960-61 season, was top man in the 50-yard free sty le. In the dis- tance races we had Drew Casani and Dune Wilmore. both of whom excelled in their events. Tom Bullock led the breast- strokers l breaking records almost every meet. Again this year the Arm) divers. Fred Hall and Jim Cargile. showed our opposition how to perform. Although we were rated underdogs in the majority of our meets, our spirit and determination often won us the laurels of victory.

I he i ' iii Cross Country Team had an outstanding 1959 season despite two ver serious misfortunes. The first came with tlie loss of Captain Dick Healy with a foot injury early in the season. Neverthless, the team went on to score im- pressive victories over Buffalo, Providence, LeMoyne, Syra- cuse, Colgate. Cornell, Manhattan, and St. John ' s, led by Dick Greene who was the individual winner of all the meets. The team demonstrated its great depth b winning the Hap- tagonals and placing second in the IC4A s. Dick Greene won the Heptagonals with John Jones, Lynn Bender, Howie Roberts, Gene Wilson. Ted Benz. Stan Thompson, and Bill Hanne turning in outstanding performances, as they did all ear. The team then dropped a tough race to Navy when Greene ran off the course. A seventh place in the NC4A meet finished off the year. The outlook for next year is bright despite the loss of Dick Heah . Dick Greene. Gene Wilson. and Bill Hanne through graduation. SCORES Irm.

Wrestling " Do you use a MAN ' S deodorant? ' ' The conquest of Navy climaxed a season that was filled with thrills for the followers of the mat-men. Wrestling one of the toughest schedules in its history, Army won 6 and lost 4. Penn State, Pitt. Lehigh, and Syracuse, all well-known and powerful wrestling schools, handed Army its four losses. But the season also gave Army its first Big Ten opponent, Illinois. Three First Classmen contributed a great deal to the team ' s success. Navy provided a fitting end to their wrestling careers. Ed Strasbourger s victory over Navy ' s captain. Paul Ilg, provided the extra push needed to defeat Navy. But since the winning margin consisted of only one point, the scores of Buzz Glenn and Bob Davidson were no less impor- tant. The most consistent winner was Al Rushatz. This Year- ling had a 8-1 record, and he will no doubt continue to give future Army teams many wins. Dale Kuhns. Buzz Kriesel. Ileum Benchoff and Al MacElhose are other Yearlings who did well th roughout the year. They promise even better performances in the future. Albe support was given by the Class of ' 61, headed by Warren and Harry Miller. Bob Protzman. Mike Ekman and Garv Flack.

The nucleus of the team. Captain Hank Fisher. Jim O ' Con- nell. and John Woods, were supported in depth h Dick VlcNear, Don Sawtelle. Sam Vedder. Bob Cain. Jim Chase, John Neiger.

Rifle Aiming for a new high! 372 The Rifle Team has methodically defeated every opponent in the past two years. The captain of this year ' s Rifle Team was George Stanley. George, known for his calibrated eyes, had the ability to shoot for keeps when the chips were down. The " Southern Gentleman " of the team was Ed Bellis, who was well-known for packing thirty-six minutes worth of shooting into a short twenty-five minutes. Representing the North was Cal Johnson. Cal, definitely not a lover of the cold weather, kept warm by shooting in the hot and high 280 ' s. In the team we also had men who were always in a hurry; others followed Bill Murphy ' s example. Bill was a person who did not get excited by a rifle match, the academic depths, or by the OPE. And last, but not least, we had our manager, Terry Gill. Terry was from Company F-l — should any more be said? We know that these First Classmen will take with them the spirit of sportsmanship and victory that has characterized the Rifle Team. They were an integral part of and a great asset to the team. L Tennis Uthough the record " I I In ■ I ' ).

Only two points kepi llie team from posting the first undefeated golf season on record. The team, led bj yearling 1 Yancey, who Coach Browne calls the best golfer West Point has ever had. and Captain Rand Edelstein. Manly Parks, and Jim Jenz. showed Vrrn) to be a power in Eastern golfing circles. Starting the year with onl) two reluming lettermen, Second Classman llarn While and Edelstein, the forecast was anything but biighl. But the encouraging success, added to the fact that the team will be totally intact for the 1960 season, made the yeai even more pleasing to Coach Browne.

" The aim of the intramural program is stated in the slogan of the Physical Education Department : " Every Man an Ath- lete. " With a variety of nineteen sports to choose from, every cadet not in Corps Squad competition must participate in a different sport each fall and spring. The program serves two immediate purposes: it helps to maintain the cadet in good physical condition and it familiarizes him with a con- siderable variety of sports. Under the expert direction of the Department every cadet also receives both training and ex- perience in coaching techniques, a valuable asset for future officers. The penetration has begun.

The winter season finds the indoor sports of boxing, wrestling, basketball, volleyball, swimming, squash, rifle, and handball occupying the spot- light. With the coming of spring, softball, soccer, tennis, cross countn. water polo, and badmington offer a welcome challenge. Physical training through the intramural program can be one of the most interesting, enjoyable and rewarding phases of cadet life. From it the cadet ma derive not only personal satisfaction, but the spirit of teamwork and victory. I ' M I 386 Extracurricular Activities 387 S eated: Buddy Mease. Charlie Ol t. Col.

The year was marked by a decentralization of POINTER activities, an increase in POINTER Board members to more fully represent Corps interests, and a depletion of POINTER funds to make the job of the busi- ness staff just a little more challenging. While the business stall engaged in a hoi and disputed conflict with the Madi- son Avenue and Park Avenue set. the editorial staff battled the censors for a more candid coverage of Corps activities ( " The New Mole " ).

Started in 1816. the Dialetic So- ciety has come a long way in accomplishing its mission of providing dramatic entertainment for the Corps. The Dialetic Society presented its first 100th Night Show- in 1871 — a skit presented to the Corps in the dining hall on 100th night. Since then the show has had its ups and downs, but once the ball started rolling, it never stopped. From a small variety show, the 100th Night Show has progressed to a full scale musical — written, directed, and acted by Cadets. yet not vastly different from the professional shows of Broadway.

Debate Council Adopting a tenet that the ability to speak effectively is an acquirement rather than a gift, the West Point Debate Council vigorously conducts a program designed to give cadets the opportunity of acquiring this ability. During the 1959-60 academic year, the Council has employed seminars, debate clinics, and ultimately the de- bate, " a formal contest of reasoned argument, " as tools to accomplish its mission. Varsity, Novice, and Plebe debaters have gained not only a sense of self-improvement at the Academy, but in intercollegiate debates, have developed their critical faculties and understanding of contemporary prob- lems and attitudes.

" In keeping with this name, the Forum has designed a program that allows the cadet to continually increase his knowledge and understanding of current world Affairs. The chief means of expanding ideas are discussion programs and speaker programs. Intercollegiate discussion programs are concerned with geographical and political problem areas. They afford cadets the opportunity to exchange ideas and broaden their viewpoints on these problem-. World Tension Seminar-, are another type of discussion that are designed to allow the cadet more time to focus on certain aspects. The advice and guidance of qualified officers are provided to enlarge the understanding of each cadet.

" To the Glory of God and in memory of the Departed Graduates of the United States Military Academy . . . " The Cadet Chapel with its tall. Gothic tower, occupies a command- ing position overlooking West Point. This majestic structure is silently reminiscent of the Academy ' s pride in the Long Grey Line. Inside hang the aged colors and standards from many historical battles. Hymns and battle songs ring out every evening from the chimes in the belfry. The music for worship is provided by the largest pipe organ in the Western Hemisphere. The Cadet Chapel Choir, two hundred voices strong, has the mission of providing inspirational music for the Sundav morning services in the Protestant Chapel. They make three weekend trips to New York City and vicinity each year to participate in religious services. This year marked the fifth for the Choirmaster and Organist. Mr. J. A. Davis, Jr. Through his efforts and those of Capt. T.J. Charney. Officer-in-Charge. the choir has been a most enjoyable extra-curricular activity. Glory to GOD, Altar Cadet Chapel.

No music without fun. ' Glee Club According to legend, the Cadet Glee Club had its origins in Benny Haven ' s Tavern, back in the 1820 s Officially, however, the present Glee Club was organized in 1921! with a membership of twenty-five singers. In the last thirty-two years the club has expanded to its present strength of nearly two hundred cadets, including the recently organized Fourth Class Glee Club. Although its program has grown with passing years, its motto remains unchanged: " No fun with- out music, no music without fun. " Notable appearances have been at Carnegie Hall and Town Hall in New York City.. Presidential inaugurals, and numerous television concerts. Among its thirty appearances this year the Glee Club sang at the Football Hall of Fame, the New York Athletic Club.

Bareheaded salute it, With eyes up, thanking our God That we of the Corps are treading Where they of the Corps have trod — They are here in ghostly assemblage, The men of the Corps long dead, And our hearts are standing attention While we wait for their passing tread. We, sons of today, we salute you — You, sons of an earlier day; We follow, close order, behind you, Where you have pointed the way; The long gray line of us stretches Through the years of a century told, And the last man feels to his marrow The grip of your far-off hold. Grip hands with us now, though we see not, Grip hands with us, strengthen our hearts As the long line stiffens and straightens With the thrill that your presence imparts.

The Yearling deadheal was one of our most active periods, and wc became well- known by the Tactical Department.

To those who were unfortunate and left the fold, we wish the verj best; and to those who stuck the four years through, many memories will long remain. Long remembered will be those plots and plans continually brewing in our midst, and the electronic paraphernalia that was always hidden from the watchful Eye. Long remembered, too, will be the parties in New York and Philadelphia before and after the big games. But stamped deepest in our minds will be the comradeship, the loyalty, and the manner we attacked every job and got it done with the least of blood, sweat, and tears to all. To those we leave behind we bid a Eond adieu. We go our man) different ways, some to become great, -nine nol so great: but all to uphold the principles for which our nation stands.

We had our share of fun beating the system while the upperclassmen were at classes, and had our share of sorrow plebe year losing several classmates. Recognition came at last and most of us spent the summer leave building up our alcohol reserve for the coming dry year. Yearling ear came and went and everyone just said. " Two down two to go. " Main of us spent Second Class summer in Europe spreading the B-2 goodwill, especially among Euro- pean girls. Second (.la-s year meant a lot of pad time to the lucky, and a lot of after-taps work for the rest, the mono- tony being broken onl) bv a good western on TV or a super-pepsi! Finally Second Class ear ended and everyone put on black shields, anticipating the coming weekends, fiist Class year was a mixture of g I cars, movies, weekends and bad academics, academics, and more academics. We spent a lot of our last year talking about IC " s and Triumphs. and uniforms, and insurance — all of which just made June come faster, and b golly, June of ' 60 final!) came with gold bars and a sheepskin. 469 I C-2, lsl CLASS: i Top— I. to r.)

From the stolen hats on Christmas of ' 56. to the big " bang " in June of ' 57. through the shuffle in the Fall of ' 59, to the grand finale in June of ' 60. we became known as a group that retained its independent spirit. Our motto was. " Yeah. I ' m in H-2 . . . so what? " Our hives were hivier; our goats goatier: our athletes sturdier: and our sluggoids were in a class by themselves. We had bachelors and mat tied men; we had good times and bad; easv Tacs and other Tacs: but through il all we kept our heads up. laughed, and left another problem in the dust. Diversit) of talent was our hallmark. Diversitv but unity — something of which we will always be proud.

F s -V a « - Army troops are now able to cull upon the country ' s first produc- tion equipment of this size. The device — designed to warn of surprise over-the-ground infiltration or major attack by an aggres- sor— greatly enhances the effectiveness of battle area surveillance. Developed jointly with the Army Signal Corps, this new Sperry portable radar instantly reports any movement of men or vehicles within a three-mile range — at night, in fog or smoke. So accurate is the set lhat it can detect one soldier walking a mile away and can distinguish between a single individual and a squad of several men. It is also sensitive enough to determine the approximate si e of a vehicle target and indicate whether it has wheels or tracks. This new " Silent Sentry " is one more result of the joint efforts of our military leaders and Sperry to keep our defenses up-to-date.

This work involves the pra tical application of the most advanced concepts of communication theory. r Itek information handling systems serve a variety of purposes in government, in- dustry, science, education and the armed lories. In the area of photo reconnaissance for example, it is important lo our nation ' s security that the photo interpreter be able to devote as much ol his time as possible to the actual process of interpretation. Itek systems will automate much of the process of photo interpretation to eliminate routine work. In education, Itek systems will permit scholars to make more effective use of knowledge that is available, and will improve learning and teaching methods. In pioneering the new science of Information Technology, Itek is blending the skills and experience of scientists and engineers in a variety of disciplines. The effi- cient application of these skills is opening a bright, new era in man ' s search for a better world. i_ If you would like additional in- formation, write for booklet, 77m Is Itek. isey Itek Corporation Waltham 54.

Emphasis on research extends from the shop — where new materials and new methods of manufacture are under contract study — to pure research, which is the sole function of an entire division, V ought " s Research Division. Here scientists arc mining new knowledge from many fields, including basic research into astronautics, electrogravities and the life sciences. Vought Aeronautics is producing the near-Mach 2 Crusader fighter series, is developing the nuclear- powered SLAM (supersonic low-altitude missile), is Scout research rockets are supplied to NASA by the Astronautics Division. A fourth version of the Crusader fighter is being produced by the Aeronautics Division. carrying out antisubmarine warfare work for the Navy, and is represented in other fields ranging from battlefield weapons to pilot escape. Vought Astro- nautics, supplier of NASA ' s Scout research rockets, has designed a simulator to duplicate up to 17 differ- ent stresses of space flight. Vought Electronics is developing advanced antenna systems, support equip- ment and power controls, including the actuator tor the Minuteman ICBM. The Range Systems Division is tracking NASA satellites, in addition to other Pacific Missile Range duties. All these activities of Vought ' s five divisions have a common significance.
