I m immmmmm II ADMINISTRATION page 27 CLASS HISTORY page 63 ACTIVITIES page l4l page 189 DEDICATION T is with pride and affection that the Class of 1961 dedicates its Howitzer to General Henry Clay Hodges, Jr. as the senior living member of the Long Gray Line. Born into an Army family in I860 at Ft. Vancouver in the Territory of Washington, he was the son of a West Point gradu- ate. His period of service to his country has spanned a full forty years. As a cadet, he became a Captain and devoted some of his time to the duties of a hop manager. He graduated in the upper half of his class and was one of its most popular members. Returning as a Math instructor. General Hodges witnessed the initiation of many of our current traditions. He saw Army football born under the urging and initiative of Michie, and with it the beginning of organized athletics at the Academy. Lieutenant Hodges went first to Ft. Clark, Texas where he had a minor encounter with some Comanches. After more frontier duty and his tour as a Math instructor, he returned to the West to command the Army ' s Indian Scouts. Subsequent years saw him suppressing the Moro Insurrection in the Philippines, acting as a Quartermaster, a recruiting officer, and a teacher, aiding in the action against Pancho Villa, and leading the .S9th In- fantry Division overseas during WWI. His varied and out- standing career command our esteem, and we of ' 61 are proud to dedicate to him our lloicitzvr. f f 4 One of the essential truths about West Point is that there is a dichotomy of forces of work. Tradition and change are both clearly in evidence all about us. It is easy to see the conflicts that occasionally arise, but the men of the Corps can feel that in a deeper sense tradition and change compli- ment rather than oppose each other. Forms and techniques that our predecessors cherished have been put to the test of time. Some of them have been altered. It must be so. But the real traditions lie not in forms. They are the basic values that are ingrained in the Motto and the Honor Sys- tem and heart of each graduate of the Academy. These will never change as long as West Point continues to fulfill her mission in shaping America ' s destiny. t The United States Military Academy has among its oldest traditions a reputation for being at the forefront of American education. This is vital in a world where a rapidly expanding technology finds many of its newest and most important applications in the military. Maintaining its leading position is necessary to provide officers with the broad educational background that the modern Army re- quires. This necessitates change — in curriculum, in facili- ties, and in techniques. But the basic character traits of the good officer have not changed. For instilling such qualities as integrity, self-discipline, devotion to duty, and love of country, traditions are a source of guidance and strength. Change and Tradition — the two do not conflict. They go hand in hand. The strength of the Academy and its success will always depend on both. They are inseparable. The Elective Program is introduced.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTION 9. REQUIRED PROFICIENCY 10, HONOR SYSTEM New rivalries are born! HE Class of ' 61 has seen a great many firsts during its tenure. We were the first to benefit from the new elective program, the first to wear the new T.W. uniform, the first to meet Air Force on the athletic field, and the first to serve on Army orientation in Europe. We saw 150 pound football added to our varsity athletic program with sterling results. Many of these firsts have entailed new tests and challenges. ' 61 is justly proud of the manner in which it has met them and of the record it leaves behind. 11 i I HE sound of the pneumatic hammer was almost as much a part of our lives as the clang of the assembly bell. We witnessed a tremendous amount of change in the physical plant. The wing of the hospital fell before the blows of the wreckers to give way to new barracks. The old Riding Hall underwent a metamorphosis and emerged resplend- ent as Thayer Hall. The East Academic Building became the Hilton. A road was painfully hewn from the rock behind 720. Lee Hall opened its doors as a new dragging facility. Projects of all sizes were initiated, and still others were planned. The Superintendent ' s House was renovated. The Plain was plowed up to permit the installation of a sprinkling system. Some careful calculations were rendered void as filling along the shore of Lusk Reservoir pushed its capacity below 92.2 million gallons. West Point acquired a new Catholic Chapel. Yet there is much of the old with us still. The 3rd division barracks are much as they were in 1851 when they were built. The library, the East Academic Building, Grant Hall, and many other structures remain landmarks that recall for us our roots in the past. Perhaps the future will see some of these, too, altered. But although we know that this must be so, we will see the transformation with regrets; and the sight of the old halls will ever strike a nostalgic note. m 1 K 13 ' uNE week: The Class of ' 61 has reached the end of its long and difficult road. This is the brief and fleeting moment of basking in glory and congratula- tions before we set forth again. It is also a time when perhaps the sense of tradition lies heaviest upon the Corps. The ubiquitous Alumni, young men and old, with their reunions and dinners are a tangible remmder of the Long Gray Line. As we march out for the presentation of awards and walk down the eager ranks at Recognition, we cannot help but feel deeply the fact that all this has happened countless times before and will happen again and agam m the future. We feel our place in the continuity and maybe a little of the oceanic sense. The moment, however, that best symbolizes our affection for tradition comes with Alumni Exercises. The Corps of Cadets honors the Long Gray Line as General Hodges, its oldest living member, pays homage to the Father of the Academy with a wreath. Progress and change notwithstanding, our ties to the past are cherished and strong. 15 .ill ' " ff ' K {If " £mil Oaather (•■-..r.-sscM- ..r r. ii,.iiiim)i, .

Some date back to those pleasant days of illusion when we first nurtured hopes of entering USMA. Some prognosticated our deeds in the dim future, and some anticipated the achievements we would make as cadets. Many of these hopes and dreams are still part of us. We can look back upon others, smiling with pride that they have been ful- filled. Inevitably there are a few that have perished during the harsh struggle with reality. Flirtation Walk is one aspect of West Point that is likely to remain unaltered. Along its picturesque length, many of us have made our plans and shared our dreams for the future. The mere name will maintain a tangy sweetness down through the years. A blaze of color and richness during the fall and a promenade in white and black during the winter, spring saw Flirtation Walk pregnant with the promise of new growth. Seasonal change in perfect harmony with annual traditions of summer, fall, winter, and spring. The situation is strikingly analogous to our own at West Point. We hope that here, too, the balance between change and tradition will be preserved. •s» l«l f " HOWITZER STAFF Editor-in- Chief: Associate Editor: Associate Editor: Advertising Manager: Business Manager: Circulation Manager: Photography Editor: Art Editor: Donald A.

Since the initial assembly of the Class of 1961, we have witnessed the appearance of new faces at every level of command. As we graduate, we see a new administration assuming control.

T i I , : ' •ri in •H p J Since its founding in 1802 West Point has continually in- creased in both size and scope. Today this expansion proceeds — in extent of curriculum, in facilities, and soon, in all probability, in the authorized strength of the Corps. A corollary of this steady and unslacking growth has been the progressive development of a more complex, comprehensive, and efificient system of admin- istration. We dedicate this section to the devoted officers and enlisted and civilian personnel who keep the wheels turning, the bells ringing, and the tenths fleeing. •ri u 10 •ri •ri section edited by JOHN J. NICHOLS n— r " Administration and Academics " seems to cover a vast field, and in reality it does. The administrative processing which a cadet and his records go through during his stay at the Academy involves an ingenious and complicated system of cubbyholes, file cabinets, and paperclips masterfully held together with several rolls of red tape, and is a necessity to each and every cadet. Academics pose a constant challenge to cadets in almost every field for nine months of the year. It is this portion of the Academy that has the responsibility for the intellectual part of the cadet ' s training. It is through these Academics that a cadet receives the " broad basic collegiate education in the arts and sciences " that will enable him to better serve as an officer in the United States Army. 1 -iiK iHE ' ;ftM=i»« First Ron:- Lt.

This resulted in many research papers being finished with a sigh just as the reveille cannon sounded. Nevertheless we managed to master the King ' s English, even if it did mean going up and down the section ladder at each resectioning. Yearling year found us being pursued by the classics: Homer, Euri- pedes, and Dante — to name a few. Then there were the lectures by Colonel Alspach on the subject of Shake- speare, to instill knowledge in the unsuspecting troops. We received our liberal arts education from the Depart- ment with all the trimmings. First Class year found us being influenced by the many essayists whose articles were in The Pursuit of Learning. Even though the De- partment lost out by a small margin in the race for the " Tenth Taker ' s Trophy, " we gained many things of value through the instructors of the English Department.

Department of Electrical Engineering Electricity, Juice, or the Mystery Hour all started one day when they told us there were little things called electrons that went one way, but the current flow was in the other direction. From that day on juice became a day to day spec course of things we didn ' t understand and half suspected weren ' t true. Resistance, capacitance, and nonsense made our days at the juice plant miserable. We learned the right hand rule for one thing and the left hand rule for something and the slide rule for going pro. We found Out, however, when it came to grades, the Department believed in the minority rule. We spent many hours in the lab trying to bone volts, amps, and tenths, but we got very little of any of them. This is the way it went through circuits, power, and electronics, until, near the end of the course, we finally learned the truth. All of it was just a big fib. We then came to the part of the course where nobody knew what was going on: Nuclear Physics. Finally after a year of frustration and lost tenths, we discovered that the reason we studied juice was not that it was true, but it worked. Even to many of us that passed, the course with flying colors, electricity is still just something that happens when we turn a switch on. 35 iM- 1 — — :t ti ' I. -- J .

The I ofila Department of wbioj Foreign Languages 36 ri " Ahh! " the OOs and Ahhs of it. The Department of Foreign Languages was o ne depart- ment for which we really had to think. The only trouble was that we had to do it in a foreign language. Needless to say, this was not one of our easier tasks as a cadet. Not only did we study the simple grammar and vocabular) ' of a language, but we studied the countries so thoroughly that we began to think like real natives. The most etS- cient methods were used by the Department to start us thinking in our new language. The lectures, the labora- tory periods, and especially the class room discussions, gave us all the opportunities we needed to develop our skills. It was indeed a rewarding feeling to be able to understand better another country and its people. By gearing our minds to their atmosphere and getting an insight in how another part of the world lives and thinks, we broadened our outlook in a most profitable and en- joyable manner. Truely much credit is due the instructors for -their patience, ability, and understanding used in enlightening us. Language Labs provided us with an opportunit) ' The closing statements by the Trial Council. The Rebuttal and Final Statement by the Defense. Our classes in law were some of the most interesting classes at the Academy. It was here that we learned just what was meant by " intent, " " negligence, " or " reason- able man. " We learned just what the " " book " says we can and can not do. Later we put our knowledge to use by prosecuting our classmates. Sometimes it seemed as if we were " persecuting " classmates, but in the end we learned our lesson. The Department of Law did not make us all members of any bar association, but it did give us a thorough working knowledge of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the United States Constitution and their many complicated interrelated aspects. We have been provided with the knowledge that an officer will find applicable to himself, his career, and his command. Especially after graduation, but even before it, we can use the knowledge which the Department of Law gave to us. Not only did it give us the basic background and fundamentals of the study of law, but also increased our ability to analytically and ration- ally look into a situation and pick out the pertinent facts. o« Row: Maj.

I J woi lemi My »asli J Bui wl Wson Department of Mathematics i V £ It was during our two year hitch with the Math Department that we grounded ourselves in the tech- niques and principles we were later to need in our science courses. As we tried vainly to represent a hyper- boloid of two sheets on a paper of one sheet, we won- dered what it was all about. The daily routine of board work, " question boards, " " front boards, " drill prob- lems, and writs did more than teach us math. Slowly and painfully we began to improve our powers of logical analysis and reasoning. When the course was finally behind us, some of the techniques seemed to wash away with that ever present green chalk dust. But when, in later years, the principles were necessary; we somehow managed to bone them up more easily than before. Some of the more enthusiastic of our ranks sought a rematch First Class year in the form of an elective in Advanced Calculus.

Military Art, which is the basis of the vocation that we are endeavoring to prepare for, gave us an oppor- tunity to analyze the evolution and application of the principles of war. This gave us insight as to some of the possible problems and difficulties that we might run up against during our career in the military. Aus- terlitz, the World Wars, and Korea all became part of our lives in studying the changing concepts of war- fare, in analyzing the tactics and strategy employed by the commanders, and in realizing the possible trends that might be used in the future to overcome or destroy the enemy. On alternate days, Civil Engineering took over our interests, by trying to install an understanding of movement diagrams, trusses, and influence lines. Military Engineering balanced our artistic inclinations with scientific concepts in order to bring about the object of their department. Both of these subjects added up to an interesting and challenging course, for which we are grateful to the Department of Military Art and Engineering.

At the same time, we learned that everything that goes up doesn ' t have to come down — it can go off in the " x " direction or be stopped by a frictional force. This Department brought forth the fact that all of their answers could be found on our slide rules and only varied by constants. Toward the end of the year a lucky few went splashing around and waterfighting in Popolopen Creek and measured, to within 300% the flo w rate of the Creek. The course began with a smile and ended with an astonished look when we saw the approved solutions, but the hours spent in this Department were truly worthwhile. The smug look on the Prof ' s face as his answer differs from that of the class. By varying the fuel mixtures we will Front Row: Capt. Renfro, R. M.; Capt. Fox, J. E.; Capt. Birdseye, E. H.; Maj.

This newly reorganized department reflects the changes to come as the new Plebes study in ES GS. 46 Department of Earth, Space, and Graphic Sciences When the Class of ' 61 was under the care and guidance of this Department the name was different, and the courses had not yet been changed to accompany the new title. During our Plebe year we studied Military Topog- raphy, better known as " Squat and Plot. " This was the course that taught us how not to get lost at Camp Buck- ner and the course that aided us so much on A. O. T. details. This is, without a doubt, the most practical course for a junior officer the Academy gives. Also, it was dur- ing our study of Military Topography that we learned the methods that are incorporated in the making of maps as well as the map systems of foreign countries. Yearling year faced us with an almost unsurmount- able obstacle called Graphics, or " Squint and Print. " This course began with a careful explanation of what a pencil is and how it is used. We soon got into the use of the complicated T-Square and Triangle. Naturally we pro- gressed to the detailed drawing of such cute little things as artillery shells. Now, the Department of Earth, Space, and Graphi- cal Sciences delves into the intricacies of meteorology and astronomy, and they provided the courses in Geography that make an officer cognizant of the face of our Earth, as well as an abbreviated study of Topography and Graphics. Gentlemen, " Take-Instruments. ' 47 During the latter part of yearling year the Department of Military Hygiene presented us with a series of very interesting and informative lectures. Not only did we get a full picture of the value of the Medical Corps, but also we learned the necessity of maintaining combat effective- ness through the proper consideration of the individual soldier, and of both his mental and physical health. We also learned that the impact of the nuclear age and nuclear war will be felt as much by the Medical Corps as by any other branch. We were told of the advances medical science has made in its effort to provide the leader with the protection he wants for the physical and psychological safety of his troops. We left thoroughly indoctrinated. Department of Military Hygiene Col. Mallory, P. W.; Maj. Rogers, R. J. The Military Psychology and Leadership Department is now presenting three courses spread over the last three years at the Academy. " Yearling " year, the first semester is spent in learning psychology, the " scientific study of human behavior. " The second semester and part of " Cow " summer is spent with learning the Methods of Instruction. First Class year one semester is given over to the study of Leadership, that most necessary quality of an officer in the regular army. In " Yearling " year we learned the whys and wherefors of human actions although some- times we learned them the hard way, that is by the quadrant system in writs. In Methods of Instruction we gave a twelve minute lecture, two five minute critiques, and a thirty minute lesson. This training was undoubtedly of great practical value.

This was the dept. that was never clued in about Firstie deadbeat. We would spend four or five hours studying automotive engines, and then most of us weren ' t sure they would work. The first part of the course was spent analyzing materials. Nobody ever seemed to know why we did it. We then parted ways, half of us trudging down the hill for auto- motives, while the other half were subjected to arma- ment. Automotives soon became a struggle to keep the few tenths the department was so kind as to give us. We finally came to the part where we had to tear down an engine and put it together again. Luckily, we only got one grade during the fiasco. The writs came on a " guess and get " basis: either you guessed all of it or you got nothing. Toward the end we finally convinced the depart- ment that the ballistic characteristics of a Firstie were not very good. When we went to Aberdeen we finally knew that the hazing was over. 50 : I Again by varying the fuel mixture, two years later .

During Fourth Class year, we learned the basic physical skills in swimming, boxing, wrestling, and gym- nastics. Toward the end of the year, a little relaxation came in the form of tennis and golf. Then during Second and Third Class years, we enjoyed participation and com- petition in such sports as handball, volleyball, squ ash, and even unarmed combat, but nobody will forget the ratty to class afterwards. Finally we progressed to First Class year where we had to face Plebe gym all over again. Luckily we were on the giving end this time. Also, we found ourselves coaching and refereeing in the intra- mural program.

This Depart- ment presented us for the first time with a real and actual use for some of the Mathematics we learned Plebe year. The theory and the practice of the laws of Physics and Chemistry could be easily understood when one had a firm grasp of the math that the Department handed out to us, but few were those who could even reach that high, let alone grasp. Of course, Physics and Chemistry were not always theory and problems. We spent many hours in the laboratory. The Physics labs always pre- sented us with problems that, to say the least, challenged our capability to understand the world and its intricacies. The Chemistry Department ' s laboratory periods seemed to deal with some of the potions that the alchemists of Merlin ' s day created magic with. However, now looking back on the courses of this Department, we can realize that we did learn quite about the " whys " of the world we live in. 35 li Front Row: Capt. Williams, T. C, Jr.; Capt.

It was during our First and Second Class years iiere that we were confronted with the Department of Social Sci- ences as they tried to enlighten our understanding of the social " hows " and " whys " of the world. Second Class year brought to us a very thorough study of the develop- ment of the world through the Dark Ages, the Renais- sance period, and then modern history. Our " spec the world " Geography course led us to all the countries of the world through such a thorough coverage that our heads felt like animated globes. It was the Department of Social Sciences that gave us an insight to the various forms of government of the major powers of the world. First Class year exposed us to the pocketbook problems of national magnitude which every nation must deal with. Of course we can ' t forget the little ol ' monographs of 4000 and 5000 words. We needed them to keep us busy and happy during Gloom Period. Actually, though we complained quite verbosely about these papers, they provided us with some of our most important training. All in all, we do realize that the Department of Social Sciences had given us that understanding of politics and diplomacy that an officer needs. Department of Social Sciences 57 Sgt. Conklin leads the band on the field during a half time intermission. United States Throughout our careers at West Point, we have listened to one of the finest and most versatile bands in the world. From Reveille on our first morning in Beast Barracks to Graduation Parade and " The Official West Point March, " the United States Military Academy Band has presented us with fine music and has made us proud to be associated with it. This outstanding group of musicians has provided the music, both military and otherwise, from Reveille until Taps almost every day of our cadetships. They have shown their musical ability by playing everything from Dixieland Jazz to " longhair " concerts, from Sousa ' s marches to Retreat. All throughout the football seasons, they provided us with entertaining and inspiring music to help us to victorious games. Also during our First Class year, they led us in the Inauguration Parade in Washington, D. C No matter where the Corps goes, the band goes also.

There are many technical skills to master in this business. The First Battle Group was the unit that taught us the technical side of our future trade. From the enlisted ranks, through the " Smiling Irishman, " the other non- coms, and the officers, First Battle Group is an elite organization composed of soldiers of the highest calibre. In field training during our summers and classroom tac- tics instruction alike, they did a splendid job of imparting the " broad basic military education " outlined in the Academy ' s mission.

Such traumatic experiences as the initial adjustment of the New Cadet, Recogni- tion, the first leave, and Graduation will stand out in bold relief on the memory of any class past, present, or future. There are also subtler events and details that are the individual heritage of each succeeding class. We of the Class of 1961 have shared, too, our traditional and distinctive experiences. In these pages we record some of them. 10 A n H section co-edited by RICHARD A. BEHERENHAUSEN ARTHUR J. DOWNEY PLEBE YEAR I 64 1 During the first few days in our new home we were introduced to many strange and wonderful customs, one of the strangest, if not the most wonderful, being the nightly ordeal known as shower formations. If any one thing were chosen to embody all the events of Beast Barracks, it would be those shower formations. The visit to the squad leader ' s room and down to the sinks to wait in line for the shower. The jockeying for position in line, the countdown in the showers, the standing in line again — this time for foot powdering — and finally the happy moment when you reported that you had completed your personal hygiene habits for today. It all added up to . . . BEAST BARRACKS! 65 Getting uniform. 3 July 1957 and the transformation began. Starting that morning, 732 of us came straggling up to the gate in columns of bunches, all eager to exchange our civilian clothes for that historical cadet grey. It all started when we tu rned in our money and got a tag and a number. From then on we were herded like cattle from the first sergeant to the Cadet Store, to the barber shop, and back and forth across the area. But from utter confusion a semblance of order began to appear. Gay sport shirts were replaced by " Shirt, grey (TW), " the column of bunches was replaced by a column of squads, we marched out to Trophy point and were officially New Cadets. Getting uniformed. 67 Although we had now been transformed from civilians to New Cadets, we had yet to become Plebes. The next few weeks were spent on fundamentals. We learned Army drill and the Army daily dozen. We also learned the fourth class way to eat. How many small bites does it take to make a full and sufficient meal? And there was that dreaded command, " Plate, Attention! " j JI wmany Am . Tlate, i And then we ate a full and sufficient mea 69 i Learning lo be , and Tigers! Eight Saturday inspections taught us to be spoony, eight hours of bayonet drill taught us to be tigers, and eight hours of dancing instruction taught us to be " Fred Astaires. " Dancing classes were always fun. There was that element of chance as to whether you would end up a boy or a girl. Bayonet provided a release for some of that stored up hatred, " Squad Leader to the rear, long thrust series, MOVE! " The time was moving by and the training began to stress the military. We had to learn to live like field soldiers out at Camp Shea, and we came to know the meaning of the term — G. I. ' s. Then we prepared for the Plebe Hike. |ls| ' ff ' " ■ ' liir practii , . and for real. 71 i 72 We marched out of Central Area, let our chins out, and began the six days known as the Plebe Hike. We wound our way over the Hudson Highlands, seeing for the first time the terrain we would run into again and again on " West Point and Vicinity 1:25,000. " The hills never seemed quite as high on the map as they did when you were at the bottom with a full-field pack looking up. But there were always the rest halts and the chance to give your tired feet a breath of fresh air while your squad leader checked for blisters. The mornings we spent marching, but the afternoons were free and they were easily the happiest ones of Beast Barracks. The boodle truck managed to follow us wherever we went to provide us with ice cream and cokes; combined with the swimming and free time it made the hike seem like a vacation. Suddenly it was Saturday morning and we were marching in North Gate — stopping first to shine our boots. The band appeared in front of us, and we passed in review at 0800 hrs. — reveille was a little early that morning. The Plebe Hike was over, and so was Beast Barracks. We were ready to join the Corps, but we were (ired. . . . f and military. 73 The end of August and the beginning of a year, or per- haps a Hfetime. Memories of Plebe Year, Hke the pat- terns of a kaleidoscope, come in bright flashes of color, change, and are gone. As the years go by, the recollections of the discour- agements, the anxieties, the hardships of our flrst year of cadethood fade, and all that remains are comical incidents, unique memories that will summon laughter in later years. Mail carrier: " Why don ' t I have a letter. Mister? " " No Excuse, Sir.

We formed up in Central Area and marched to the EAB or WAB (the Riding Hall was still in the process of being converted to Thayer Hall ) . In the fall the advantage of being on the hivey side of the area was not immediately apparent, but the onslaught of colder weather made the warmer, sunny side desirable. After an agonizing session with the math department, we formed up and marched back to the area — from WAB it was only a matter of a few steps. In the morn- ings we also met with the OPE and the " Topo " Depart- ment, both classes included a workout, one — the daily dozen, the other — five flights of stairs! Boxing, Wres- tling, Gymnastics, and Swimming, with the latter being the most potentially dangerous. Mr. Sorge saying, " Mov- ing out to the second green line, supporting the rifle over your head, bob and breathe for 20 minutes! " The other activities claimed their sha re of casualties, broken noses in boxing, sprained knees and elbows in wrestling, and even a broken leg in gymnastics! i Fall and the football season went by in one quick, col- orful flash; we went to Philadelphia twice to play Notre Dame and Navy, but Philly wasn ' t good to us that year. Suddenly it was winter, and the number of days till Christmas leave became very important.

But all too soon Christmas was over and the Corps was re-united to face gloom period. The WGR ' s struck and the ranks on the shady side of the area were depleted by turn-outs. But those that remained continue to forge ahead through the snow and slush. A brief break in our routine life took place toward the end of February — lOOth Night — and it was wild. Fire hoses, sand buckets, shaving cream, showers, lockers overturned, alcove rails demolished, Washington Hall with more food in the air than on the tables — it was the last one. That winter also provided our class with another last — the last Band Box Review! Ready, wrestle The tables are turned for a night! ■ i IL I ■ Spring comes slowly to West Point, but from our van- tage points on Fort Putnam and Trophy Point — cour- tesy of the department of Mihtary Topography and Graphics — we watched hfe rise in our Rockbound High- land Home. We had another short taste of relaxation known as Spring leave, and to officially herald the com- ing of the new season the T.D. started its annual Spring buck-up. The OPE took us outside for golf and tennis classes. Drill and Parades came next along with little hikes down to the Main Gate known as Armed Forces Day Parade practices. White trousers returned to style and they all seemed to have grown shorter while lying in a packing box. Central Park on a sunny day in May, with twenty-four hundred Cadets changing uniforms while being watched by an equal number of interested civilians. Plebes were last in line as usual, but the best fun was after the death march was over and the buses were parked on 1st Avenue with all the windows cov- ered with brown paper while the uniforms were changed again. Armed Forces Day marked the end of the academic year, the WGR ' s and then June Week followed closely. The five days of June week passed by quickly, even though we were in confinement. We did get out for the picnic on Constitution Island. At last the moment we had waited for, arrived and we marched back into the areas for Recognition.

We soon discovered that our planned life of leisure was never going to material- ize. The strange thing was that we liked what we found, a challe nging schedule of hard work to introduce us to the rigors of Army life. After settling into the routine of arranging our new barracks into a semblance of uni- formity, we eagerly awaited our coming clashes with the PFT, " Slide for Life, " and those ever present ag- gressors.

New friends had been made and some even found that special someone, shyly awaiting their cadet blind date in Mrs. Holland ' s office. The last week saw us busily preparing for the Buckner Stakes.

The doors also closed on the cadet mess and the special Buckner privilege of dining with your drag within the cadet dining hall. Our first and only formal was a roaring success that evening and the hop committee went all out to assure that all enjoyed it to the utmost. Sunday brought a chance for our guests to gain a better insight of Army life through the media of excellent static displays. Thus the first chapter in our lives as upperclassmen had drawn to a close. It was with unrestrained eagerness and yet a touch of sadness that we departed Camp Buckner to begin the new academic year. 90 ik Noisemakers of 61 at work 91 » i rT Going to classes in the Riding Hall. 92 Wtlcomc back!

Our former spoony appear- ance of dress gray and a wrinkled chin was replaced by the brown boy and drooping eyelids. For some, " yearling deadbeat " started in September, others worked diligently to survive the traps set by the various academic depart- ments. Chemistry labs gave us a chance to excel and S.T.M. ' s a chance to complain. Dragging became more of a pleasure than a chore as we made full use of the Weapons Room, the many hops and of course. Flirtation Walk. It was the year of " St. Peter " and we all basked in the glory of the marvelous Mr. D. Football was king and our triumphs over Notre Dame and Navy made the year thoroughly enjoyable.

After a final demonstration and the " boning " of all those " In- fantry files " we headed for Norfolk. Despite the fact that it was a Navy base, Little Creek, Va. proved to be highly enjoyable.

However, " sweepers man your brooms " was almost as bad as reveille in the snow. After a pleasant journey, we bid farewell to the Navy and rejoined the Army at Fort Monmouth. Fort Monmouth, in addition to their static display of L-19 ' s, proved to us that " wirepower is firepower. " The hop at Monmouth was a big success as we reac- quainted ourselves with the yankee women. As we headed back to West Point, we were able to pride our- selves for a job well done. Our initial class trip had been rewarding for all of us and we could now look forward to new challenges to be faced in our summer details. Some of our class would be shedding cadet grey for a month while enjoying a well earned summer leave. The rest of the class was headed for A. O. T. or a second Beast Barracks. 103 J 4 - No sir, I ' m not trying to hide MIT sure came in handy There must be an easier way 104 ' Have Gun, Will Travel The remainder of second class summer passed quickly f or our class. Many of us saw for the first time what the " real Army " was like. Taking full advantage of the A.O.T. program being offered at Fort Bragg, Benning, and Campbell, we were indoctrinated into the ranks of the airborne infantry. Those who spent their month of training in the South will not soon forget the sight of the officer ' s club after a hard day in the field. Unfortu- nately there was also a need for ' 61 in yet another New Cadet Barracks; but, fortunately for us, this time the shoe was on the other foot. Serving as squad leaders or assistant staff officers we ably assisted in the shaping of the new cadet. It ' s going to be a long month 105 m a USMA ' 61, Marching thru Dixie The inevitable has arrived — Cow Academics! Eagerly we plunged into the fray, but quickly we were lost amidst a tangle of leads, vector diagrams, ancient history, and, of course, entropy. We had a short southern vaca- tion while watching the football team beat the Blue Devils of Duke. The rainy South forecast the gloom that was to follow. At least we won the game ( adet-. can sleep anywhere 107 Academics wore on, and gradually we became accus- tomed to the new habit of studying diligently each night. We travelled to New York in anticipation of our first football clash and were disappointed in the tie which resulted. Our lives were brightened momentarily as we tried on the long-desired " crass pieces of brass " and carefully checked our sizes. What would it be — star sapphire, emerald, ruby, or some other precious stone? The choice was finally made and all that was left was to wait and hope. The Engineers proved that in our class the brains were at least equal to the brawn and the sound defeat they administered to the Goats was unfortunately a correct forecast of the Saturday which followed.

A ray of sunshine was beginning to appear, for Christmas leave was soon to come. But not before we were introduced to the wonders of the monograph. One more big headache was added to our growing list of aches and pains. We were sure the end had come when deep snow blanketed our highland home hours before leave was to start, but even this did not deter us from heading in all directions at 1515. Home for the holidays at last with nothing but WGR ' s, a monograph, and gloom period to look forward to. It was just all the more reason to have an extra wonderful holiday season.

Navy Exchange Weekends ar- rived and we were off to see how the " other half " live. The consensus of opinion was that we had it all over the middies as far as living conditions. Spring Leave was suddenly upon us and the annual mass exodus to New York City for a long spring weekend. Gloom period was ruled a success, for we beat Navy in the winter sports competition.

We hud finally achieved the long awaited status of first class- men and were eager to impress the world with our newly acquired importance. We moved up to Stewart AFB and embarked on our First Class Trip. We knew we had reached the top as we relaxed in the sensuous comfort of reclining bucket seats and were served de- licious catered meals by the charming hostesses of " Pine- apple World Airlines. " Our first stop was Fori Knox — home of the tank. We were welcomed by Gen. Johnson and a briefing on the combat arm of decision. General Johnson greeted us at Knox. • ' - -■ ' ' . ■:.- - : ' k If these were L-19 ' s they ' d be laying wirt 115 Tanks Shock action, fire poiver, and mobility — we saw them demonstrated under every condition. Not even a torren- tial downpour could stop the combined arms team, spear-headed by armor. Wonder if it was any drier in- side an M-48 than it was under those cadet rain coats? No one minded sitting in the rain for twenty minutes, because we had moved into the stands with a purpose. We saw tanks, rode in tanks, drove tanks, and fired tanks — and all grew to appreciate the capabilities of tanks. And besides it is so much easier to ride than walk. After the dusty tank rides, there was always the Fort Knox Country Club with the beer filled swimming pool. Finally we boarded our planes and were off to . . . Social life was prominent at Bliss. P " 1 We brought back many souvenirs from Juarez. Fort Bliss. Home of deadly missiles, sun baked earth and suntanned girls, and Juarez. After spending an exciting afternoon watching missiles go wild, explode prema- turely, or miss their targets (we were later informed that many of the misses we had seen were actually hits ) we flocked across the river to that colorful land of Mexico. From one home of the Artillery we jumped to an- other, Fort Sill. Here the Artillery re-couped its losses by demonstrating the devastating destruction of massed fire power and the pin-point accuracy with which it could be delivered. We also got our first taste of buffalo meat in Oklahoma. Cheer up, guys, maybe the drone will run out of gas. 117 -1 » « Next stop — Fort Sill Introduction to self-propelled artillery. ■j .ffS Next time try it feet first! And we call this a P.L.F.

In a hectic four days we were introduced to Ranger training and the sawdust pit, Airborne training and the thirty-four foot tower. " Hup thousand, two thousand, three thousand, Airborne! " The night fire power demonstration was more colorful than Fourth of July fireworks and a little more dangerous. It served as a fitting climax for the trip and our visits to the combat branches. No more living out of B-4 bags.

No more passing out plates, no more Camp Shea, more emphasis on the military side of training, train-fire instead of the old KD range — the Corps had . . . changed — even " Country-Club " Buckner had been converted into a miniature Ft.

' 123 Shortly after tlie end of the First Class Trip, a little more than one-third of our class moved back to Stewart AFB and embarked on an even longer trip — to Ger- many. From the time we left Stewart and the land of the round door knobs we were acting the role we would assume for real one year later — new Second Lieutenants. For one month we supervised maintenance, made in- spections, taught classes and P.T., attended officers ' cof- fee call, took part in field problems, and saw a little of Germany — even if it was only " Graf. " S.I. in the yVrmy. The flag is up, the flag is waving , I wonder where this came from. ' ' 125 nm New responsibilities riic- dreaded weeliend guard tour By the end of August we were again assembled together within the walls of our " Rock-bound Highland Home " anxiously awaiting the publication of Administrative Memorandum number 55, commonly known as First Class Authorizations. Its arrival marked the beginnings of a new era — week night movies, authorized visiting during C.Q., Sunday afternoons off post — freedoms here- tofore unknown to us as cadets. After Labor Day Week- end we were thrown into the midst of another academic year, but this time it was the last one. Relaxing in our club 126 -. - Jt-N Wonderful West Point weather What did he say? What if the O.C. comes? First rally of the season m Beautiful isn ' t it! It pays to be a Hop Manager The month of September was very important to us, for on the second weekend of that month we received, in a small blue box, a token symbolizing four years of hard work, a visible reminder that we were First Classmen and that the long game was in the last quarter. We re- ceived the rings on Saturday afternoon and spent the rest of the day with our eyes glued to the third finger of our left hand. The Ring Hop that night was also an en- gagement party for many — we weren ' t the only ones who received rings that day. Col. Stillwell provided us with an after dinner speech dedicated to " the girls " — the mothers, OAO ' s, fiancees, and wives who provide so much to a military career. Before going to sleep that night we took one last look — and sure enough — 1961 reads the same upside down a nd backwards. The Big Dance L mam Have a heart, Sir! As per usual, the football season was the highlight of the fall, complemented of course by the inescapable parades and inspections of the T.D. We played Syracuse in New York City, and it was easily the best game of the season for us. Mr. Kennedy (this was before the election) was in New York and was seen by several cadets on their way to and from hotel rooms. Pittsburgh was a long train ride away, but we finally made it, only to watch the team outplay Pitt and end up with a tie.

Those of us who didn ' t or couldn ' t take advantage of the long weekend were there for the rally and the team ' s send-off, the rest of us tried to raise our spirits as best we could outside the fifteen mile limit. Nothing needs to be said about the game except: W it till next year! The long trip back 133 The Juarez Warrior Right after Navy weekend the OPE scheduled the PFT, and stair climbing — or even walking down hill — be- came a problem. But the pain went away, and for most of us it meant only one to go. The car show was the big attraction of the season and a chance to test sales resistance. The sight of all those shiny new automobiles caused the over extension of many eyeballs and wallets. Even the warnings of the Department of Ordnance and the T.D. had no effect on the mad rush to sign contracts for cars financed at $80 a month for 80 months. 135 S.I; ' - • «»• We had the Firsty Club, s We were somewhat askance at the magnitude of the decisions confronting us . . -- »jarf Our last Christmas leave behind us we were faced with gloom period once again. Snow and monographs com- bined to keep us inside, and prison pallor spread like the measles throughout the class. We marched down to Cavalry Plain to learn how to march down the streets of Washington. In between the practices for the Inaugural Parade we managed to test drive some of the new cars, and more orders were signed. Foreign cars did a brisk business in spite of government attempts to reduce the gold outflow. The onslaught of General Winter brought considerable ice and snow to the Point, and those of us who couldn ' t ski soon learned how on the way to Ord- nance lab. For those of us boning Air Force, February was the important month, for that was the time of the service drawing. The rest of us drew our future lots in March. March also brought Spring Leave.

" Their uses of this prize have always been a monument to the diversified interests, ingenuity, and imagination of the Corps. Some of these pursuits were enjoyed as much by our predecessors as ourselves. The hops and social functions and the inevitable " pad " could be cited in this connection. Today, we point with pride to a lengthy and definitive roster of activities, both organized and informal, that enable the cadet to enjoy himself in a con- structive manner and to round out his personality in unstrained association and cooperation with others. n •ri •H section edited by JAMES B. RAYNIS m mmm Bm WL Activ: an ex aiiesti Diviii bmc up in H The I96O-6I year saw cadet activities flourish under the able supervision of Major Duquemin and the Special Activities Office. The fact that cadet activities are really an expression of the interests and desires of the Corps is attested to by the flexible and fluid nature of the total program. This year saw the established clubs continue to provide opportunities for self expression, new know- ledge, and fun. Several new activities such as the Skin Diving Club developed into going concerns and a few brand new groups such as the Bowling League sprang up in response to popular demand. A few clubs including Ordnance and Weight-lifting lapsed as cadet interest shifted to other fields. A trend to individual projects characterized the year. It was a year in which cadets made full use of the rich program available. Like — movin " , man! " But, sir, I did plug it in! Most popular activity — Dragging ■P r The card that talks Honor Committee Each member of the Corps of Cadets is his own personal honor representative. The Honor Committee, however, maintains and perpetuates the high sense of honor within the Corps. The Honor Committee had its origin in the latter portion of the nineteenth century in the form of a vigilance committee. Its members took it upon them- selve s to uphold the honor of the Corps although they had not been recognized by the authorities as an official organization. Shortly after World War I, however, an official Honor Committee was organized. This committee was given the responsibility of instructing the new cadets in the Honor Code and Honor System, of guarding against practices which were incompatible with the high ideals inherent in the Honor Code, and finally, of inves- tigating conduct which appeared to violate the principles of honor. Today, the Honor Committee maintains these ideals by upholding the premise that " A cadet does not lie, cheat, or steal. " front Rou:- Hale, M.; Glass, R. (Cadet-in-Charge); Col. A.

Oliver, the 1961 Class Committee has worked unceasingly toward the betterment of the class and the Academy. As Yearlings, the committee promoted the conversion of the old USMA Museum to Lee Hall and furthered the improvement of the Weapons Room. The committee gained in status with the advent of the class weekend. Toward the end of the Second Class year, the committee submitted a list of proposed additions and changes for First Class Authorizations. Expanded First Class Authorizations and the long Thanksgiving-Navy Week-end were obtained. June and our black shields brought the committee new responsi- bilities including the supervision of the purchasing of automobiles. The 1961 Class Committee proved that no task was too difficult nor too small for its consideration. It was the epitome of the class motto: ' 61 — second to none. Left to Right: Harrell, R.

Fourth Class Year was spent in creating the design of our class crest. We had a tough time in deciding some of the details, but we feel that the crest represents the spirit of the class of 1961. During May of Our Plebe Year, we saw our first product, the 1961 " A " pin. Third Class Year the class voted on the ring which they will proudly wear for the rest of their lives. During the fall of Second Class Year, we helped the class order their rings. With the ordering and sizing formations completed, we realized the big day of 10 September I960 was fast approaching. Reorganization Week of First Class Year found us all busy working on the ring presentation cere- mony and the ring banquet. Finally on 10 September i960, we received our rings, which are truly second to none. Chairman Ralph Garens confers with Col. Stilwi Charge of the Ring Committee. 1. Orticer-in- Front Row; Taylor, J.

The Cadet Chapel choir, two hundred strong, has the task of providing devotional music each Sunday morning in the Protestant chapel. The choir, under the able direction of the Organist and Choirmaster, Mr. J. A. Davis, conducts rehearsal each Wednesday night in preparation for each Sunday ' s service. But this is not the extent of the choir ' s mission. On the lighter side, the choir frequently makes trips to New York City and vicinity to participate in religious services of various churches. In this way, choir-members have time to relax away from the Academy and, at the same time, to create a lasting favorable impression of West Point in the surrounding communities. All in all, the Cadet Chapel Choir has become a most enjoyable and profitable extra-curricular activity. Cadet Chapel %4j Jim Oaks and Maj. Lee discuss program with Mr. Davis Probably the most prominent building at West Point, the Cadet Chapel towers over all of its surroundings. Its one large central tower rises behind Washington Hall, and it has been acclaimed as a magnificent example of gothic architecture. The building is adorned with many carvings and figures, such as King Arthur ' s sword, " Excalibur. " Inside, the Chapel again displays its mag- nitude, measuring 200 feet by 72 feet. The stained-glass windows above the Chapel main door have been dedi- cated to the Graduates who died in the World War, in the hope that the Academy may " have sons like these from age to age. " This dedication says in a single sentence what the main purpose of this magnificent building is. That purpose is to help build men morally strong.

This new addition to the chapel was financed by subscription from graduates and cadets.

Joe Paone, Director of Choir, with Organist Ernie Muro From the demanding days of plebe year through grad- uation and beyond, the " padres " and the Chapel exert a guiding influence on our Hves. Mgr. Moore and Fr. McCormick have unwearingly worked to help us develop as sound, mature Catholic adults. Through the Cardinal Newman Forum, the Acolytes, and the Choir, we have learned and practiced our Faith. The Catholic Chapel squad, growing every year, is making adequate use of the enlarged chapel and the new facilities. Daily Mass, Sunday Mass, trips to St. Patrick ' s Cathedral, choir practice, acolyte rehearsals, retreats at Mar} ' knoll, Holy Week and Lenten services, and Baccalaureate Sunday will be permanent memories of cadet life. Holy Trinity Chapel will hold a special place in our lives, wherever we go, in whatever circumstances we find ourselves. The keen wit of Msgr. Moore and the ready smile of Fr. McCormick will always remain with us as symbols of a warm and lasting friendship that was borne at the Chapel and whose bonds will not be weakened by the passing years. Truly, the Catholic Chapel has been successful in giving us the tools needed to defend and practice our Faith effect ively.

The Old Cadet Chapel served the cadets for 75 years, from 1836 until 1911. When the construction of new academic buildings necessitated the removal of the Chapel, the sentiment attached to this building was such that it was removed stone by stone and rebuilt in the cemetery where it presently stands.

Jewish Chapel Each Sunday the Jewish Cadets make the long march to the Old Cadet Chapel to hold their services. Here, under the spiritual guidance of Rabbi Norman Kahan and with the capable leadership of Captains Bennet Hollander and Eugene Marder, the Chapel Squad has had a very successful and beneficial year. The Choir, under the direction of Sp. Robert Guralnik, is selected from among the members of the Chapel Squad and sings at services each week. In addition, the Choir has made three trips to nearby communities to participate in services and religious activities. Undoubtedly, the religious training received at the Academy will assist these cadets in becom- ing excellent citizens and officers in the future. Reading the Torah Debate Council V. p. Mick Seidl and Pres. Reggie Brown The Debate Council and Forum is a confederation of two major extracurricular activities and has a member- ship of more than 800 cadets. The mission of the Council is to improve the cadet ' s ability to communicate effectively. In keeping with its mission, the Council is designed to give cadets an oppor- tunity to speak frequently and in various situations. In addition to competing against some 400 colleges and universities last year, the Council sponsored intramural and novice tournaments within the Corps. To top off its activities, the Council is host to the National Debate Tournament which decides the intercollegiate champion- ship in this country. Debate Council Chairman Howie Graves coordinates with Forum Chairman Bruce Seidel. Rcgj;iL ' was a winner last year, too 152 The Forum is designed to broaden the cadet ' s academic and cultural background. Members of the Forum travel all over the country to discuss topics of national import- ance, and colleges and universities throughout the coun- try come here to discuss similar topics. Participation in these discussions widens the cadet ' s horizon and improves his knowledge of domestic and international problems. The Forum supplements its discussion programs with various speakers who come to the academy during the year. The Forum also provides cadets with opportunities to attend plays and operas in New York City. This trip to D.C. proves that DCAF is not all work, no play. Debate trips rove as far afield as Montreal m 153 And again, in Conclusion Here we go again National Debate Tournament My first requirement . . Each spring, in the latter part of April, debate teams from colleges and universities from all corners of the United States converge on West Point to participate in the National Debate Tournament held yearly. The National Debate Tournament is thus appropriately called the " World Series " of debating. The colleges are represented by their best teams, and they come to West Point to compete in the tournament which will deter- mine the best debating team in the nation for the debate year. Thirty-eight teams competed in the National Debate Tournament for 1961. In order to be eligible for this fifteenth annual tournament, each team had to have the prerequisite that they were victorious in their regional debating schedules. The tournament is part of the Debate Council and Forum ' s forensic activities, and as such, is under the supervision of the Department of Social Sciences. The National Debate Tournament is adminis- tered solely by a cadet staff under the guidance of the officer-instructor from the Department of Social Sciences. The Debate Council and Forimi aims to heighten the latent ability of cadets to speak in public by teaching them to think on their feet with ease and conviction. Thusly, to further this aim, this activity has participated in radio and platform debates, and has, in recent years, been host to the National Invitational Debate Tourna- ment. 154 thing military? Rocky opens SCUSA Scusa XII Once again, SCUSA participants gathered at West Point to discuss our national policy. Students from eighty-two colleges in the United States and Canada met for the Twelfth Student Conference on United States Affairs. SCUSA XII consisted of five sessions: a Keynote Speech, two panels, a banquet, and a luncheon. The Honorable Nelson A. Rockefeller, governor of New York, gave the Keynote Address. The Honorable Dean Rusk, Secretary of State, addressed the SCUSA banquet on our security policy. The cooperation and hard work of both officers and cadets made the Conference a smooth-running affair. The students left West Point after the luncheon, thus ending another very successful SCUSA gathering. The SCUSA Staff iF- The Howitzer Board: Seated: LoLke . D., Barbour, D. (Edi- tor); Abraham, B.; Standing: Geiger, K.; Brown, H.; Price. D.; Dreesbach, D.; Showalter, T. Howitzer The Howitzer Staff struggled through a typical year with the first headaches falling to the Business Manager and his staff, whose duty it was to balance the books in the face of a series of unpredictable expenses and no income. The Advertising Staff proceeded to take over the worry department as they roamed back alleys from Boston to Chicago in an effort to secure sufficient ads to insure that the final product, the Howitzer, would be " in the black. " The Circulation Staff was also subjected to their share of anxiety since the annual cancelling of First Class Accounts and the perennial late buyers kept them constantly on their toes. There ' s typing for all Editor Don Barbour discusses layout with Officer-in-Charge, Lt. Col. Cobb The group that probably deserves the most recognition for the Howitzer ' s high quality is Ted Showalter ' s talented photography section. It contributed more man- hours per individual than any other group and consisted of a crew whose individual members were capable of transforming the camera from a mere machine to an instrument of artistic expression. Truly, the quality of the 1961 Howitzer is a testimonial to the skill and dedication of this group. y Circulation men on the job Howitzer Photo Staff: Kneeling: Missal, J.; Roth, J.; Standing: Bernitt, C; Showalter, T.; Garvey, D.; Missing: Aiker T. II The Editorial Staff worked laboriously and diligently toward the final copy. Members of this staff sat through the inescapable after-taps proofreading sessions and met the seemingly impossible deadlines (which inevitably coincided with First Class monograph deadlines.) The page proof returns finally found their way back to this staff and were harbingers of the fact that the end was in sight. Viewing the first finished copy of the Howitzer filled all concerned with enthusiasm and a sense of ac- complishment. The road to completion was a difficult one filled with many unpredicted obstacles but the eventual goal was realized through untiring efforts of many cadets. The Howitzer was a group effort all the way.

Mortar The Mortar is the official publication of the Third Class of the United States Military Academy. This publication is managed entirely by members of the Third Class under the supervision of Major Maurice D. Roush. Encom- passing all of the aspects of the many phases of Buckner life in a pictorial review is certainly a difficult job but, judging from the comments received about this year ' s Mortar, the publication did just that. Paging through the book, one can see the fruits of Dave Knowlton and Bob Stidham, who laid out the pages, the art work of Jon Van Zandt, the product of Jim De Wire ' s salesmanship, and Mike Kilroy ' s editorial ability all of which combined to summarize all the hours of work and leisure enjoyed at West Point ' s country club, Camp Buckner. Surveying the finished product The Bugle Notes, for 52 years an official publication of the Corps, is dedicated to presenting a composite picture of the various traditions and customs of the Military Academy. Primarily used as a vehicle of enlightenment for each entering fourth class, the Bugle Notes also pro- vides a handy pocket reference for both the cadet and graduate. Contained within its covers are sections dealing with the history of West Point, religious activities, and the Cadet Honor Code, as well as an enlightening insight into everyday Cadet life. Also contained in the publica- tion are many traditions held sacred by the Long Gray Line. Don Lionetti; Hans Wagner; Pat Hoy; Bob Brui Bugle Notes Seated: FainiL-r, V. Bitner, R.

Public Information Detail When Mother writes and tells you she saw your picture in the home-town newspaper, these are the people who are responsible. Keeping the public informed of the many current events happening at the Academy keeps the PIO staf? relatively busy most of the time. First Class members receive the opportunity of visiting the Pentagon on a five day trip to Washington, D. C, which broadens their understanding of the role of PIO in the Army. Ranging from athletic awards to academics achievements, from the first day of Plebe year to Graduation Day, on the PIO detail, publicity is our most portant product.

Public Relations Council The Cadet Public Relations Council was organized in the fall of 1953- The Mission of the Council is to in- crease the knowledge of the Military Academy among the general public by means of scheduled speaking en- gagements. Emphasis is given toward stimulating a desire among young men to enter the Academy. Cadet speakers have appeared before many high school assem- blies, civic groups, reserve components, American Legion Boy ' s States, Alumni dinners, and on radio and television programs. During one year, 1958-1959, cadets spoke to audiences of 28,000, and appeared on 27 radio and 34 television programs. Cadets are selected for the various engagements on the basis of speaking ability as well as military and academic performances.

( Associate Ed. ) Pointer The POINTER is the only self-sufficient cadet extra- curricular activity at West Point. It receives no funds or contributions, but it is a regular business enterprise with profits and losses. Last year it did an annual business of approximately fifty thousand dollars. Founded in 1923 by several visionary cadets, the POINTER has grown to its present organization of over 140 men. The adminis- trative board of the POINTER consists of 17 First Class- men who head the various departments: administration; editorial, and business. Under these general headings come the three basic sections to the organization: the editor-in-chief and his staff, the editorial staff, and the business staff. Included in the various staffs are the spons editor, photo editor, art editor, advertising and circula- tion managers, treasurer, and four associate editors. Ad- vising the editorial and business staffs are two very capable officers from the Department of English, Lt. Col. Wallis and Capt. Tague. With the beginning of the second semester a new staff, made up entirely of Second IP Classmen, takes over the operation of the magazine. This pohcy, started in recent years, affo rds the new staff the beneiit of practical experience in the presence of the helping hand of the old staff. With a total of over 125 underclassmen spending part of their spare time working on the POINTER, the entire writing of the magazine is done by the cadets themselves. The writing, photog- raphy, layout, selling and distribution are all done by the cadets. This lends the cadets valuable experience in work- ing in the journalistic field. Only the printing of the magazine is done by an outside source, a printing firm in Newburgh, New York. To supplement the cadets ' prac- tical experience, the members take trips to various pub- lishing plants and schools of journalism in the near-by areas. Through subscriptions, and the sales of POINTER products such as books, calendars, stationery, and Christ- mas cards, the POINTER is able to produce a 32 page issue filled with fiction, humor, and cadet activities 17 times a year. Jack and Pete combine their talents. Bob Herrick plots next issue ' s art content. 161 il mmmmmmm f Lt. Col. Cyr, OIC, and CIC Hodell meet with Padre McCormick The Cardinal Newman Forum presenrs a balanced pro- gram of religious, intellectual, and social activities for its members during their four years at West Point. It is organized and conducted by members of the First Class under the guidance of the Catholic Chaplains and an Officer-in-Charge. The main aim of the Cardinal New- man Forum is to deepen the spiritual interest in the cadets. The primary function of the Mathematics Forum is to provide interested cadets with an opportunity to expand their mathematical knowledge. One lecture, on a subject not covered by any mathematical course at the Academy, is given every month. An educational trip is taken in the spring to study the practical applications of mathe- matics in science and industry. Forum CIC, Cadet Sigg integrates with OIC Capt. Friesen Newman Forum Math Forum. Eus L i. German Language Club The German club helps interested cadets keep proficient in the language. The club sponsors such activities as an educational trip to New York City, German movies, here at West Point, a meeting with the Vassar German Club, and guest speakers, who help to give the members of the club an insight into the German culture and way of life. The members of the club find that it is an excellent opportunity to further their knowledge of the language. Capt. Szymczyk and Caspadin Dombrowski, Club Pres. The Russian Language Club has the main purpose of giving to those cadets who have stu died the Russian Language the opportunity to use their knowledge more often and to gain a further insight into Russian life and culture. This is accomplished through the use of guest speakers, movies, slides, and educational trips to Russian performances and activities in the vicinity. Russian Language Club French Lan age Club Frenchmen ham it up The activities of the French Club this year were quite varied and interesting. After beginning with a " rousing " movie version of the " Folies Bergeres ' the program for the year included lectures by Lt. Col. and Mrs. Germann, a recent French movie with the noted comic Fernandel, and a presentation by M. Violet followed by a spirited 4-way debate between Lt. Col. Germann, his wife, M. Violet, and the members of the club concerning the per- sonal and political relations between Americans and the French. In addition to these and other programs, the trips to New York City to further our knowledge of this " Language of the Diplomats " completed a very inter- esting and enjoyable year in " Le Club Francais. " Portuguese Language Club The main purpose of the Portuguese Language Club is to give interested cadets a further understanding of the Portuguese speaking countries. The golden splendor of Copacabana Beach, the futuristic majesty of Brasilia, and the haunting beauty of the Amazon are ail brought to the members through movies, slides, and talks by officers and cadets who have visited these places. A spring trip and picnic highlight the year ' s activities. Capt. Bethea, Officer-in-Charge, with Cadet Royce, Club Pres. P Extra Instruction! Spanish Language Club Leisure and progress would aptly sum up the Spanish Club activities for 1960-61. The Club ' s activities, initi- ated by a picnic at Round Pond in the fall, continued to provide a few moments of leisure throughout the year. With the new year, a film trip through Spain topped the agenda. The success of the February trip to New York City set the stage as the Club ' s members looked ahead to a spring full of good times. Bridge Club The major purpose of the Bridge Club is to encourage and foster the game of bridge among the Corps of Cadets. The Club sponsors regular duplicate sessions among its members, and participates in intercollegiate and regional competition. In the Fall of I960, we sent a delegation to the National tournament in New York City. The Bridge Club provides cadets the opportunity to enjoy bridge at all levels of competition.

Norman Last year the Parachute Club, organized as a team only since the spring, won " Gavin ' s Gavel, " symbolic of the nation ' s outstanding intercollegiate team. Upon gradu- ation of the class of ' 60, new officers were elected: Presi- dent — R. J. Wooten; Vice-President — Gabe Gabriel; Secretary — Joe Maio; and Treasurer — Sam Carr. When Capt. Meinzen was transferred, Major Norman became the new Officer-in-Charge. With this new staff in opera- tion, the club increased its activities; jumping was con- ducted on Wednesdays and Sundays (weather permit- ting) and classes were begun for new members. The club hopes to have all of its members on " jump status " and plans to win permanent possession of " Gavin ' s Gavel. " Will it open? m Club OC Maj. Moffct and Prts. Bill Williamson listen to Mr. Jay Ski Club McGurk executes a jump-turn Camera Club The Camera Club is primarily utilized by a small number of cadets. This allows immediate individual instruction. Our present facilities are in the sinks of the 34th Division but new facilities will be available soon. This will allow more room for more members and activities. We sponsor the annual Photography Contest within the Corps, and provide one educational trip to New York City. Pres. Heiman and OC Capt. Patterson r There was no " gloom period " in ' 61 — that is if you were a skier. The beneficent gods of winter spread layer upon layer of white over the West Point slopes and members of the Ski Club snowplowed and schussed from December to March. This most successful season could not have been possible without the capable leadership of Club President Bill Williamson, who, with the help of other stalwarts of all classes, did much to inspire and promote the sport of skiing at West Point. An afternoon down under CIC Claassen with Fencing Coach Fencing Club Skin-Diving Club To those with a yen for the unusual, the Skin Diving Club has the answer. Club members make numerous trips to the lakes on the reservation for diving on the weekends. Spear fishing, underwater photography, and just plain exploring make this a captivating activity. The Skin Diving Club, by presenting instruction to the in- experienced, offers all cadets a chance of participating in this new, fast-growing spon. The Fencing Club was originated to provide a team for intercollegiate level fencing competition and to develop an interest in the sport within the Corps. Each year several cadets learn ro fence as a parr of their member- ship in the club. Now, under the guidance of a profes- sional coach acquired this year, the club will be better able to represent the Corps than it did in the past. 168 Actually four clubs in one, the Outdoor Sportsmen ' s Club participates in many activities. The hunters and archers aid in the reservation game control, while the anglers fish in all waters of the reservation. Members of the club have constructed log cabins as bases for woods- men and archery practice, hunting, fishing, hiking, and other outdoor activities. The Eastern Intercollegiate Woodsman ' s contest highlights the spring. A truly " active " activity. Outdoor Sportsman Club Sailing Club Capt. Sebesta, Club OC, with Jack Sigg, Pres. The Sailing Club affords all cadets the opportunity to enjoy a pleasant side of Navy life. The club provides and maintains twelve Tech dinghies for cadet use at West Point and Camp Buckner during the spring, sum- mer, and fall. Basic sailing instruction is offered to all interested cadets by fully competent instructors. The sailing team, a member of the Middle Atlantic Inter- collegiate Sailing Association, competes in regattas against other service academies. Ivy League schools, and various Hudson River and Long Island Sound yacht clubs. A day ' s put-out with the Sailing Club OC Capt. Manjeot and CIC Cadet Welsh Pistol Club Due to the Pistol Club ' s large membership, it is able to maintain over 110 weapons for members ' use, including; cal. 22, cal. 38, and cal. 45 pistols. Shooting outdoors in the spring and fall, many members have qualified with the 45 automatic. In the winter the club moves indoors and fires for NRA qualifications. Over one hundred of the east ' s best shooters participated in Coach Joe Bren- ner ' s Invitational match. Golf Club During favorable spring and fall afternoons, we find many of the Corps ' golfers on the fairways of the un- usual West Point Golf Course. Its steep climbs, and abundant woods, provide an excellent challenge for the novice as well as the skilled professional golfer. While not engaging in intercollegiate competition, the Golf Club stimulates and develops the interest and skill in this sport so popular in the Regular Army. Rick Conant and Stacy Bragg (CIC) discuss coming season ■ ■ ' .mmiKkf Rifle CIC, JJ Harmon, with OC, Maj. Ht i Rifle Club The Cadet Rifle Club opened its season at Camp Buckner with a Bang! Under the leadership of Harmon, Ford, and Dluzyn, and the coaching of Master Sergeant Gall- man, the .30 caliber team perfected their shooting with the intention of winning the First Army Rifle Champion- ship for the second consecutive year. Preliminary matches were at Roxbury and Camp Smith and now the sights are set on the National Championships. Skeet Club The Skeet Club continued to be very active again this year. With a total of five home and five away matches, everyone was kept busy either shooting or helping run the matches. The installation of a new trap range created new interest among those cadets with a keen shooting eye. The trips to many New England Gun Clubs and the tour through the Winchester Gun Factory in New Haven were highlights of a very successful season. Skeet Club OC, Capt. Fife, with CIC Rod Granneman 171 ■mmi JiMmmmmmimm Water Polo Club Club Pres. J. J. McCann gets advice from OC Capt. Noah The West Point Water Polo team enters the 1961 season with a view towards extending the longest winning streak currently in existence at the Military Academy, and towards defending its title as Eastern Collegiate Champions and Junior National A.A.U. Champions. Graduation losses, and increased competition, place this achievement in doubt; however, with returning starters and promising Yearlings, a formidable foe will be pre- sented to opponents. Cadet Bowling League The newest organization to join the long list of activities available to the Corps, is the Cadet Bowling League. Organized in the fall of this year by a group of cadets in company H-1, the league experienced little difficulty in obtaining interested members. The league bowls every Wednesday night and consists of eight teams. This new activity definitely has a bright future in store for itself. Initiators of the League ll Pres. of RR Club, G. T. Ericksen This year the Railroad Club purchased several hundred dollars worth of new equipment. In anticipation of the more spacious new location, whose layout will begin in 1961, the club ' s facilities will be available to anyone interested in model railroading. Individual interests can be pursued, whether they be building new equipment, wiring circuits, or just operating trains. Model Airplane Club The Cadet Model Airplane Club provides both the loca- tion and materials for the construction of model airplanes and boats. In addition, the club provides the facilities for flying and designing model aircraft. To provide interest in the club, we work with both radio and regular-line controlled models. We also participate in inter-club fly- ing competition and are promoting competition with other clubs. Cadet Potts. Cadet-in-Charge, and Capt. McCormick, Club OC.

Since its inception thirry-tiiree years ago, the Cadet Glee Club has risen from a small group of about twenty-five singers with two or three concerts on the post to a one hundred twenty man group with a rigorous schedule of twenty-five concerts last year. Over the last few years the Club has made such notable appearances as those at Carnegie Hall, the New York Athletic Club, the opening of the Air Force Academy, Presidential Inaugurals, and joint concerts with glee clubs from Princeton, Purdue, Columbia, Ohio State, Vassar, and others. In addition to the usual West Point appearances in the Christmas and June Week Concerts and at the Na- tional Debate Tournament, SCUSA, and Founders ' Day Banquets, the 1959-1960 Glee Club traveled to McGill University in Montreal for the McGill Winter Carnival, to Detroit for the Intercollegiate Music Festival with other outstanding clubs from all over the United States, and to the Waldorf-Astoria in New York for such notable occasions as General MacArthur ' s eightieth birthday celebration and the Football Hall of Fame Banquet. Among the concerts this year were those in Wilmington, Delaware, at Vassar College, at the East Hartford Youth Council, at the West Point Society Banquet in New York City, and at the New York Ath- letic Club, as well as the annual appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Much of the increasing success of the Glee Club is due to the outstanding musical ability of Major Williiuii H. Schempf, the club ' s director for the past three years and the only man in the Armed Services with his Doc- torate in music. Credit also belongs to the five oflicers- in-charge and their untiring efforts, and to the cadet-in- charge, the cadet director, and everyone in the Glee Club. Dialectic Society The Dialectic Society is one of the oldest and largest organizations here at West Point. It traces its age back as far as 1824 and its members include such men as Grant, Lee, and Pope. Productions were very small in scale at first, and presented in the Mess Hall. As time went on, they became more elaborate and finally were moved to the Army Theater. The first full production was " The Game of Bluff " presented in 1898. Original music became one of the major attractions of the show after 1903. Since then many varied and enlarged pro- ductions have been presented until now the 100th Night Show can rival a Broadway production. Choreography, music, lighting, and complex props are all now in this gala production which is done entirely by the cadets themselves. For the two months prior to the production, the members of the cast and crews can be seen scurrying here and there preparing their part so that the entire show will be presented on time without a hitch. The Dialectic Society also contracts and arranges for professional talent to be brought here. Who can for- get a Sunday afternoon spent listening to the voice of Joni James or the folk and modern song arrangements of the Kingston Trio? And these are only a sample of the stars sponsored here by the Dialectic Society. The gang at the Crust Room Farm team for the Rockettes?

A meeting place for frustrated Glenn Millers at West Point is the Cadet Dance Orchestra. It is our pleasure to play for the Corps at supper during Gloom Period, and occasionally to relieve the Post Orchestra at hops. With limited rehearsal time, we rely on enthusiasm and a sprinkling of talent to produce music and fun for the Corps and for ourselves. Triathlon Club Triathlon combines in one competition the three sports of pistol shooting, swimming, and running. The event was established by the Department of the Army for the purpose of promoting interest and skill in the Olympics Modern Pentathlon. West Point ' s Triathlon Team has now become so proficient that for the last two years it has won the First Army Triathlon Championships. Your FBI in peace and war 177 Art Club The Cadet Art Club exists solely for the purpose of providing an outlet for the artistically inclined members of the Corps. There are sufficient facilities to care for the needs of the budding Van Gogh, or the already blooming Rembrandt. There are exhibits of the Cadet works held from time to time during the academic year. The mem- bers of the club are afforded a chance to see and discuss the works of other artists on cultural and educational visits to art institutions. Radio Club Born sends — the Club receives The Cadet Radio Club, located above the top floor of the East Barracks, offers facilities for amateur radio com- munication as well as for construction and experimenta- tion in the electronics field. The club uses modern equip- ment of all types, capable of covering all amateur bands from 80 through 10 meters. Working with Civil De- fense, as well as with individual contacts around the world, the Corps of Cadets sends out its own radio call, " CQ, CQ, DE W2KGY. " CIC of the Radio Club, Chip Smith, with Club OC, Capt. Morrison Calls for Concentration Chess has long been considered excellent training for the military mind. It is a game requiring a facile mind and concentrated thought. The chess club is trying to make chess an extracurricular activity and welcomes any cadet who wishes to learn the intricacies of the game. For those who have already attained a high degree of proficiency, there are many home and away matches in which they may compete against opponents of excellent caliber. The West Point Sunday School is organized and operated by the Cadet Sunday School Teachers. Approximately 130 cadets participate in this program, providing a Sun- day School for the post children during the academic year. This activity is spiritually rewarding for the teach- ers as well as the students. Chess Club functions under the direction of Cadet Stricklen and Maj. Connolly Chess Club Sunday School Teachers Handball Club Rocket Society Maj. Dallman, Club OC, with Pres. George Hricz Like a little cog in the extensive athletic machine of West Point, the Handball Club stands out as a unique addition to the sport facilities that are available to all cadets. Boasting a membership of over 250 cadets, the club strives to develop an active interest in the game. The club maintains a competitive ladder, representing the best twenty-five players. Competitive and pleasure trips to New York City, an invitational Intercollegiate Tour- nament, and the club picnic are annual events. The West Point Rocket Society has but one purpose; to sponsor cadets who desire increased knowledge in the field of rocketry. This is an area that requires knowledge of: mathematics, physics, chemistry, mechanics, and ord- nance. Aid from the academic departments, an annual trip to Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, and the actual build- ing of rockets have brought increased interest from those cadets who wish to pursue this field during their service career.

High Fidehty is becoming an important feature in many a cadet ' s Hfe, as more and more reahze the enjoyment there is in Hstening to high quahty music. As more cadets buy Hi Fi equipment the need for advice and instruction in kit building becomes important. Along with supplying tool kits, the club, through discussions and classes, has helped many cadets enjoy good high fidelity music on sets they made themselves. Audio Club Hi Fi kits at the Hi Fi show ) The Scoutmaster ' s Council was founded to allow inter- ested cadets to work with the Boy Scouts of America, and to gain experience in leadership. The council pro- vides assistant scoutmasters and counselors for the scouts of West Point ' s troop 23, escorts for visiting units and representatives for other scout activities. These activities include camping with the local troop and attendance at camporees and jamborees. These factors add up to an enjoyable year-round program that is both interesting and rewarding.

Though this year has seen the passing of Army ' s greatest mascot, Mr. Jackson, the Mule-riders will continue to add color and thrills to every game with their lively antics and good riding. The exploration of the " New Frontier " is offered as an ultimate goal for every astronomer. To this end our club has presented a series of informal lectures by various members of the Academic Departments on such topics as " The Solar System, " " Time, " and " The Galaxies and Stars. " Supplementing our evening presentations were pe- riods of observation through an excellent 5 Va " reflecting telescope. Other activities included a trip to Hayden Planetarium and a course in telescope building. Capt.

Unknown to most observers, this job entails much more than leading yells at football games and rallies, although these are the places where the work of the cheerleaders is noticed. Corps support has a great effect upon the Army teams, and under the directing influence of the cheerleaders, the Rabble can look forward to continued and ever in- creasing support in the coming seasons. mmmmmmxammiMmi KDET KDET at the boodlers The Cadet Radio Station, KDET, strives not only to provide a source of entertainment for its member cadets, but also to present to the entire Corps a continuous series of programs designed to combine the best features of commercial radio stations while responding to the special interests of the West Point listening audience. A representative week ' s programming includes varied musical presentations, frequent up-to-the minute newscasts, and special coverage of Army athletic con- tests. With the hard work of Stan Clough, Bruce Gronich and Ken Seigenthaler, the 1960-6 1 broadcasting year was truly an outstanding one. i y KDET Officer-in-Charge, Lt. Col.

As head man of this committee, Phil Mallory finds his job at least one of the more rewarding ones within the Corps. Who would complain about dragging Joni James for an afternoon? Other unnoticed parts of Phil ' s job include finding out the Corps preferences, arranging for use of the theater, and publicizing the coming event. To the Special Program Committee many owe their thanks for enjoyable Sunday afternoons during gloom period.

While at the academy he came in contact with and managed to interest two cadets of the Class of 1959 in the project of building a cyclo- tron. No time was wasted and soon there was formulated a group of enthusiastic but inexperienced cadets. The Electrical Engineering Department gave their full ap- proval to such a project and agreed on a hands-ofif policy. This was to be the cadets ' own project. Initial communi- cation to various companies for equipment and advice was originated and actual construction of the cyclotron began in March, 1959- The initial deadline for com- pletion was not realized and the project was extended to the following semester. Almost complete revision and rebuilding of the cyclotron was necessitated and June, i960, found an almost completed project. More revisions and modifications further delayed its completion how- ever, and as of 1 March, 1961, success remained an ideality. 186 Bruce Gronich at the controls of the " monster " Ion Rocket Project Doug Wold and Bob Dunning are all over this ion stuff In pursuance of an Ordnance Project, Cadets Dunning and Wold selected Ion Rocketry. A highly complicated, though interesting, subject, Ion Rockets have puzzled Werner von Braun and the boys for some time. But the two ardent scientists have great expectations of ac- complishing, here at West Point, the difficult task. If some night you should imagine seeing a black, gray and gold streak in the sky, it will probably be Dunning and Wold off to the moon, on a test flight of their Ion Rocket. Arts and Crafts Shop The Post Crafts Shop is the scene of much creative talent: wood work, metal craft, leather work, painting, ceramics, and photography. To many cadets, it is a good place to spend the weekend, working at their favorite hobby. For others, it provided the proper tools for making a com- pany sign or sanding down their rifles. To any who ventured into this building, it was an inspiration to their talents. He ' s building an isosceles triangle to play with Physics and Chemistry Machine Shop The Physics and Chemistry Department shop was not an organized activity for cadets, but it was a type of in- formal club for many. The Department was indeed generous in permitting cadets the use of its excellent shop facilities. Joe Cornwell, who ran the shop, was both a master machinist and electrician and a shrewd philos- opher on life. Working on radios and Hi-Fi sets and countless other projects under Joe ' s guidance, many cadets were lucky enough to gain practical experience in putting their ideas and theoretical knowledge to work. Joe ' s personal offering of time and talent deserves our thanks. The Chaplains contribute to the Protestant Discussion Group English Literature Seminar Organized to expand the cadet ' s background of literary experience, the Enghsh Literature Seminar meets each week to discuss selected novels, poems, and plays. Col. Mahin supervises the informal sessions and lends his experience to the discussions. The seminar provides op- portunity for intellectual growth, and the opening of new vistas in the field of literature. Louder than before Protestant Discussion Group Composed of all interested cadets, the Protestant Dis- cussion Group meets informally for the purpose of dis- cussing current issues concerning all the aspects of the life of the individual in the community and in the nation. The group is counseled by the assistant Protestant chap- lain, who works with the Cadet-in-Charge. Among the guests of the group this year were Dr. Billy Graham and Major General Frank A. Tobey, Chief of Army Chap- lains. Lt. Col. Mahin attempts to enlighten the; Victory Cannon Project A new Victory Cannon was built by l rucc Heron and Sam Veddcr to take the place of the captured German ScSmm rocket launcher that has been used until now. The new cannon is a modified American 37mm antitank gun, and is expected to outblast all of the other cannon which " invade " our grounds. A parting sign to future classes, for bigger and better victories — after we ' ve gone. I 01 •H H A 188 Organized to e: experience, the week to discuss Mahin supervi; experience to tl portunity for i new vistas in th Athletics have always been an integral and important part of the West Point system. Long before the Academy ventured into the realm of organized inter-collegiate athletics, swordsman- ship and physical development were stressed. Individual physical development remains an overriding objective. Since our early days, however, Army has made winning football its trademark, spawned the game of baseball, and become a power to be reckoned with in almost every inter-collegiate sport. Besides being a valuable vehicle for leadership and physical training, athletics are important to West Point because it is through the scores of her teams that many citizens follow the progress of the Academy and form their impressions of her. Of the impressions they helped to create, the Corps Squaders of ' 61 can justly be proud. H A section co-edited by JOHN J. BERINATO MICHAEL J. XENOS mimmsmm thletics flourished at West Point during the 1960-61 season. The Corps fielded strong teams in every sport. It was a season marked by great spirit, broken records, and unforgettable victories. Athletic Board Brig. General W. G. Rich, Colonel Emory S. Adams, Jr. (Secretary), Colonel Elvin R. Heiberg, Colonel Boyd W. Bartlen (Chairman), Colonel John R. Jannarone The members of the Athletic Board are the persons re- sponsible for the scheduling and control of all the ath- letic events at the United States Military Academy. Although their function is not always clearly understood by the cadets, they will always be appreciated for all the work that they do toward our athletic events. The com- petitors, especially the football players, will remember their help and inspiration. Never did a game pass, at home or away, that they did not approach the players individually to give them a helpful word or a joke at the tense moments prior to each contest. The names of these men have become immortal in the minds of all West Point athletes and the Corps of Cadets. 190 With the returning of the Corps to the Academy, there are always mixed emotions. It is tough to forget the European AOT or the wonderful times at Camp Buck- ner, but there is also football to look forward to. This year the Black Knights, led by co-captains AI Vanderbush and Frank Gibson, started the season early with a tough ten game schedule. But the games were not all that there was to look forward to. Many afternoons were spent watching the Rabble prepare for each con- test, and with each game the spirit grew and intensified. The high-riding Syracuse team has found the meaning of Corps spirit and cadet determination when they met their masters in Yankee Stadium. No one will ever underrate our spectacular back- field, but perhaps the most outstanding part of our team was the rugged line, which fulfilled the traditions of the past great Army lines. Each game had its own standouts, but there were no real stars on this team. It was spirit and teamwork, blended into one great team, which shook the foundations of every Army opponent. No foe could ever forget the persistent attack of this Rabble team. Long will West Point remember the components of this mighty team for their effort, spirit, ability, and determination to win.

Buffalo was a tough opponent for the Army eleven. The Bull line ' s average weight was 202 pounds and both Roger Zailskas and " his replacement were out with in- juries. For the first thirteen minutes Army ' s attack stalled. Buffalo was breaking through the defense with short passes into the flat. Then Dick Eckert broke loose with a 74-yard punt return and T.D. Later Glen Adams, recently switched from quarterback to right halfback, ran another punt back 71 yards for the second T.D. Next Tom Blanda kicked a 23-yard field goal. The third score came after a 44-yard march, when Jim Connors dove over from the two. Al Rushatz took advantage of a Buffalo fumble and plowed over for our fourth. Then Tom Blanda passed to George Kirschenbauer to add another T.D. to the smashing defeat, the result of that unbeatable " 12th Man " spirit!

This became our motto the week of September l6th to the 24th. Could Army come back and win its big game with B.C.? The Corps thought so and so did the sportswriters. But B.C. wasn ' t to be taken without a fight. All through the first half, the Rabble offense was held down. Boston College led with the score 7-6. Where was Army ' s Twelfth Man? Why, they were all out on the field, ready to greet the team at the open- in g of the second half. Even the Superintendent, General Westmoreland, was there to give the team that needed push. Army started to roll. Within the first few minutes of the third quarter, the Black Knights scored another T.D. Then Dick Eckert passed to Paul Stanley to finish off B.C . for our second victory. The end of the line ■ The big Rabble team traveled three thousand miles to meet the California Bears, and it wasn ' t about to accept a defeat. But throughout the first half of the game, the Black Knights showed signs of the fire being alive only in bursts. Perhaps the team missed the support of the Corps or maybe they were just getting used to a new team, but whatever the cause may have been, the half closed with the scoreboard reading Cal. 10 — Army 0. The Bears thought that victory was theirs. The Rabble, however, showed no signs of dismay, with the utmost determination and calmness, it hammered its way through, around, and over the Bears to cross the Cal goal four times. The Army team seemed to sense once again that it had the " Twelfth Man " present even if only in spirit. Nothing could stop our backfield as it dashed through holes in Cal ' s line, holes provided by Captain Al Vanderbush and the other big linemen. California couldn ' t duplicate their performance of the first half and the final play ended with Army ahead 28-10. Happily the big Rabble headed for home with their third straight victory.

This was Home- coming Day and a tough one for the Rabble to lose. However, spirit remained high with the Army team throughout the bright and dark spots of the game. Army jumped to a quick one-touchdown lead, but the Nittany Lions took over the lead 14-13 early in the third quarter. Tom Blanda brought us back with a 10- yard field goal, but Penn State ' s line hammered away and Kerr got across for another Lion T.D. Army needed just one to win, but a pass interception ended our chances and set up Penn State for the final touchdown. This defeat failed to dampen our high spirit and the enthusi- asm of the great Army team. George The Nebraska game was not a very ciose one, no matter what the final score may indicate. The Rabble, fired up at full speed, outran and outpassed the Cornhuskers al- most without exception. Blanda was better than ever and Al Rushatz, our small but powerful full back, plunged through the Nebraska line time after time. But at the critical moments luck ran against the Black Kn.ghts and the scores deserved were never registered. Many mistakes caused the Army team to yield the Ml to an mferior foe inside the enemy twenty-yard line The team made a superb efl ort in trymg to stay on top. At the half the score stood at 9-7 in favor of Army but the second half brought bad news with it. In one of the very few Cornhusker plays of the game. Army ' s line was deceived and Nebraska scored the winning touchdown Team spirit remained where it always had been on top. Blanda fired pass after pass, while the line and backheld worked desperately to score. But the game ended with the Nebraskan spectators running wildly all over the field. One would only have to look at the score- board to see the reason— Nebraska 14, Army 9. Army Nebraska (.l.-tSr iN- I ' m afraid to look. 197 •1 Villanova It was a dark day, indeed, for the Villanova squad when they met Army on the Cadet homeground at Michie Stadium. Determined to avenge the two heartbreaking defeats suffered previously, the Black Knights dominated the play from start to finish. The game featured a spec- tacular pa ssing performance by Tom Blanda and an equally outstanding ground attack spearheaded by all three Army backfields. The line smashed at Villanova, opening wide holes for the halfbacks. Tom Blanda and Dick Eckert kept one step ahead of the Wildcats with their passes to the ends and halfbacks. Villanova played a good game, but when the final gun sounded, they were completely humilated with the scoreboard reading 54-0. The Black Knights once again demonstrated what the combination of fine players and that Army spirit can do. And 198 Miami of Ohio A determined but undermanned Miami team returned to Oxford, Ohio, after absorbing a 30-7 defeat in Michie Stadium. The Redskins outgained the Rabble on the ground, but they literally handed the game to Army by fumbling five times. The Black Knights took full ad- vantage of their recoveries and scored their first two TD ' s after recovering Miami fumbles. Tom Blanda, with the highest passing percentage in the nation, threw scoring passes to Bob Fuellhart and Paul Zmuida in the second period to convert Miami ' s 7-0 lead to a 15-7 deficit. In the third quarter the Black, Gold, and Gray marched eighty yafrds after an unsuccessful Redskin field goal attempt. Kirschenbauer and powerful Rushatz ham- mered over for two TD ' s. Colonel Earl Blaik was among the spectators who watched the relentless Army attack overthrow the Redskins. Not another one vsmBsssaBsamm And what are you gonna do about it? The Rabble were all prepared to meet the Orangemen of Syracuse. The Corps, after a massive rally, went to New York where they continued the greatest display of spirit and enthusiasm ever seen. The Army eleven sensed this support and put up a battle unsurpassed thus far in the season. The Rabble were 7 ' point underdogs — a fact that made them fight even harder. Blanda got Army rolling when he kicked a field goal in the second quarter. Then came our TD, the result of fine work in the backfield and the virtually impenetrable Rabble line. After the second-half kickoff the Big Team — sparked by Joulwan, Kuhns, Vanderbush, Clements, and McCarthy — drove down to the Syracuse three-yard line. Yearling Dick Eckert carried the ball over on a clever pass-run option. The Orangemen fought back with a TD, but it wasn ' t enough. The 9-6 victory was a great one, and a tremen- dous credit to the fighting spirit of the mighty Army team and the Corps. Hey, Tom, I ' m clear. This was another disappointing game of the season, just two weeks before Navy. As far as the statistics are con- cerned, the Panthers were skinned by the Big Rabble, but Pitt managed to intercept a Blanda pass and convert to tie Army. With an unilagging determination the big team tried to break the tie, and Tom Blanda even broke the passing record. But the score still remained at 7-7. The fine backs smashed through Pitt ' s line for gain after gain, but it was of no avail. Many people disagree with some of the officials ' rulings against the Black Knights, but on the books the Panthers were able to maintain their tie and Army began concentrating on the Navy game ahead. Navy is a serious business. You ' ri ' dropping anchor here. Joe. With the coming of the annual clash with Navy, the Rabble worked harder than ever. The Corps turned out in even greater numbers to cheer the team on at prac- tices. All week long the team worked— it was deter- mined to win this, the big game. All week long the mess hall resounded with the shout " BEAT NAVY! " As the time grew closer, the " 12th Man " got more and more anxious. At the game the fierce determination of the big Army eleven was a credit to their fighting spirit. Al- though behind in the first half, the Rabble posed a great threat to the Middies ' victory. With a grave determina- tion to win, Army came back and played one of the greatest second halves ever seen in Philadelphia Sta- dium. A bad break came when the Army team was within one touchdown of victory — Navy intercepted a pass on their three-yard line. Both the line and the backfield — spurred by Blanda, Rushatz, and Eckert — put forth a tremendous effort. .J. ■i Navy 9 VB BSmSBlBBBSatBB 150-FOOTBALL Team spirit was at its highest level all during the I960 season. The 150-pound Football Team had few standout players — all were outstanding — and it was that Army drive and desire for victory that won the games. The sea- son was a successful one, despite the heartbreaking, unexpected 7-12 loss to Navy. Rutgers and Columbia fell before the smashing Little Rabble attack. After the luckless Navy game, the 150-pounders crushed Cornell and Pennsylvania to finish off the fine season. For the third time in four years, our 150-pound Football Team fought their way to the top, becoming the Eastern Champions. Four members of the team made their way to the All Conference game. Bob De Vries came up from his second-string halfback position to at- tain the high honor. He and Tom Mercer at end, Dick Clark at tackle, and Skip Campbell at center — all were outstanding in the All Conference game. Under the watchful eyes of Coach Tipton and the excellent leadership of Gene Witherspoon, the team had a fine I960 season, with victories over the toughest teams to be found. l-jf!

The defensive team, built around goalie Art Brown, who is next year ' s captain, allowed the opponents a total of only four goals. Even mighty Penn State fell 3-1 before the determination of Army. Then came the ill-fated Navy game. After intense practice the spirited soccer team felt sure of victory against the Middies. But Navy came through with a heartbreaking 2-1 victory. Despite the loss to Navy, Army had an all-star team this year. The top star in the offense was Bev Powell, who scored 1 5 goals and 5 assists.

They won more games in this season than any pre- vious Army team, for a total of 17 victories for 23 games played. For the first time in Army ' s basketball history, the team was invited to enter the N.I.T. This was the year when the potential shown by the great Plebe team of three years ago was finally realized. The talent of Lee Anderson, in particular, and of Ron Hannon and Lee Sager came into full bloom. Stu Sherad ' s constant spark was a booster to the team. He and Sager were among the best free-throwers in the na- tion. Charlie Rolfe, Bob Foley, and Gordie Arbogast showed themselves well; and this trio, along with Sherard, represent a strong nucleus for the future.

Mom 218 Coach Leroy Alitz and Captain Warren Miller This year marked the rise of Army as a real wrestling power in the East. There was a noted increase in both participation and spectator interest, especially after Army beat Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and other top teams. The first six victories were overshadowed, however, by our second consecutive victory over Navy in the mat sport. The team benefited greatly by the help of Doug Blubough, Olympic champion and one of the best wres- tlers in the world. Coach Alitz was also helped by Greg Ruth, one of the best collegiate wrestlers in his class. This trio was instrumental in bringing in the victories. Captain Warren Miller, a great asset as both wres- tler and leader, came in third in the Wilkes tournament. Phil Burns, Gary Flack, and Denny BenchofI were strong in the lightweight contests, and Pat Murphy finished strong after being out for half of the season. Powerful Dale Kuhns lost only to Navy. Mike Natvig and Al Rushatz went all the way without a defeat; both are well on their way to becoming Eastern Intercollegiate Cham- pions. Ray Nickla at 191 pounds also brought in deci- sive points. Rob Vanneman and Al McElhose helped at the middle weights. With most of the team returning next year, prospects couldn ' t be much better.

A record in the making I got it — now you hold it. As the swimming season opened, most predictions were gloomy; however, the team worked hard and long under the close supervision of Coach Jack Ryan and was able to compile a highly respectable season record of 7-5. Although the record is not outstanding, the team stood out in every contest; records were continually broken, whether the meets were won or lost. The Navy meet was especially characteristic of the fighting spirit of the team. Though they lost, the Army team broke six Academy records in this meet. The Harvard and Colgate meets and the victory over Cornell were singled out as team efforts. Captain Chuck Sollohub, Drew Casani, and Spike Sanders stood out; along with the other First Classmen, Larry Heikkela and Jim Cargile. They led the team through the difficult season, Steve Childers and the other Yearlings broke numerous records. These upperclassmen, aided by the fine swimmers on this year ' s Plebe team, bring high prospects for next year. iipi And with a " heigh ho.

GYMNASTICS Captain Jon Aaronsohn and Coach Maloney Captain John Aaronsohn, working closely with Coach Maloney, set to work early in the gymnastics season with long and numerous practices. Never before was a gymnastics team so determined to win. The team ' s effort paid off — Army lost only two of its eight meets, one to Penn State and one to Navy. Yearling Tom Griffith excelled at tumbling, bringing in many points for Army. Ralph Garens spent his last year on the team in mastering the sidehorse. Phil Costain, Merle Williams, and Steve Best were classified as tre- mendous by the spectators of their high bar antics. Dave Hastings, Dick Yule, and John Kammerdiener all tied the Academy record in the meet with Navy. John Aaronsohn and Bill DeuU starred on the rings; much was expected of them in the all-important Navy meet. However, the tragedy of the year occurred when John was injured and therefore unable to finish the season. The team worked hard — Richards and Hendren were especially praised — but without its captain on the rings, gymnastics lost to the Middies by one heart-break- ing point. A great deal is expected of next year ' s team. Not only will many of our top gymnasts return, but there will also be fine performers from this year ' s Plebe team, which had a very successful season. c r ' v iry — f- • ■) ' -i ' 1 . • ' - Front Row: Lou Sill; Jim McQuillen; Rich Carlson; Jim Cunningham; Bob Cain; Rear Row: Maj.

SQUASH In spite of the last-match loss to Navy, this year ' s squash team had a successful season with nine victories for fourteen matches played. Coach Nordlie and Captain Dick M cNear worked long and hard to prepare the team for its toughest games against Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and Navy. Don Voss was the number one man during most of the year. John Kampfer always did a great job, especially with his wins against Princeton and Harvard. Captain Dick McNear chalked up our only win against Navy this year. The man who inspired the team and kept its spirit up during the periods ' following losses to the big Ivy League teams was Jim McQuillen, next year ' s captain. Seven of the top ten players are graduating in June, a fact which causes some concern over prospects for next year. However, there are several Yearlings returning who, with next year ' s First Classmen, will form a strong squad. To this team will be added several top Plebe players, who showed fine style this year. % Captain Dick McNear and Coach Leif Nordlie They say you can play music by ear . 224 RIFLE Before the CCNY match at New York, Army rifle teams had enjoyed a winning streak of 37 consecutive matches. Then they lost to CCNY by one point in what appeared to be an unlucky match. This year ' s team had trouble, but after losing two more matches it came back fighting in true Army style, turning in a great season terminated by the important victory over Navy. The rifle team has had a strong 1-2-3 punch in John King, Ed Brown, and Captain Lou Berra. These three were instrumental in the victories this year. Though the entire team performed expertly in the big match with Navy, it was the superb effort of this trio which brought the score up to 1448. This was the season ' s top score, a requirement necessary to beat the Middies, who also fired their season ' s top score of 1442. One word describes next year ' s rifle team — " strong. " Only three lettermen are graduating and there are sev- eral potential standouts moving up from the successful Plebe team.

PISTOL Captain Don McBee and Coach Benner 226 The pistol team had a perfect 7-0 season with victories over all the other service academies. As in the past vic- torious seasons, most of the credit is given to M Sgt. Huelet (Joe) Benner, who is probably the best pistol coach in the United States. No opponent seemed capable of matching Army ' s 1385-or-better scores this year. Navy and the Coast Guard each lost by 22 points. ViUanova lost by the un- believable score of 1418-1286. At the NRA Sectionals, the Army pistol teanj again met little competition and took first place. The success this year was mainly the result of the ability of Coach Benner and the scores of Swick, Pendle- ton, Eberts, and Bayless. Dave Swick stood out in spirit as well as scoring; consequently, he was elected as next year ' s captain. He looks forward to another undefeated season next year with several good Plebes joining the squad to replace the five Icttermen who will graduate in June.

Coach Carl Crowell and Captain Howie Roberts TRACK Captained by two-miler Howie Roberts, the indoor track team evened its season record at three wins and as many losses. The most stirring victory was over Navy. The underdog Croweilmen put forth a tremendous effort in all events to nip the confident Middies 59-50 in an ex- citing meet which was undecided until the last relay race. The Navy meet typified the Army track team ' s competitive determination and unconquerable spirit. By performing to the upmost, they came from behind to take an unexpected victory. Gary Brown set a new Acad- emy record by pole-vaulting nearly a foot higher than he had all season. Ted Benz ' s superb duel with Navy ' s captain in the final two mile relay, in which he came from behind to win, exemplified the team ' s performances in its contests this year. Bob McCarthy and Jerry Cle- ments took many first plac es. Injuries hurt the team and were prime causes for its losses to Manhattan, Harvard, and Penn State. 227 It ' s all yours After an undefeated indoor season the I960 track team opened up a tough outdoor season. The team faced many of the finest squads in the East, and every one of the contests proved to be exciting; although, at times heart- breaking in their outcomes. When Army lost, it was by very slim margins. Although the squad has sudi stars as Captain Bill Hanne, the 1000-yard Heptagonal champion, Phil Chap- pell, the Heptagonal broad jumping champion, and Keith Nance, the holder of the all-time shot put record at the Academy, the opposition rostered stars of equal caliber and managed to snatch many viaories from Army by a few points. But whether it was victorious or not, the team displaye d the spirit and determination characteristic of an Army team. Down in Maryland the track team came out second best in a hard-fought duel with the vengeful Middies, who were still smarting from the upset victory Army had achieved during the indoor season. In spite of the effort of Jim Johnson, the Academy hurdle champion, and the other champions, the team had to accept a 76 2 3 to 54 1 3 defeat. This year ' s team should avenge the Navy loss; it is the strongest team we have seen in years with fine com- petitors in every event.

Led by Bob Kewley, who set a strikeout record with 17 against Yale, the team went all the way to become the Eastern Champs. Kewley and Wayne Williams were in the starting lineup of the All East team, and two others made the second team. Prospects couldn ' t be better this year. Although we lost a pitcher, a catcher, and an outfielder from our starting lineup, we should have no problems. Two pitch- ers, including Bob Kewley, are back as are Roger Zail- skas and Wayne Williams, two of our top sluggers. The starting lineup will probably include six Firsties; the remainder will be filled in with Cows and numerous Yearlings just up from a successful year of Plebe ball. The team will play all of the big Eastern teams again this year. In preparation for the rough but promising schedule ahead of them, the team will play four games in Florida during the spring vacation period. The com- bination of top players, top training, and top spirit will put Army on top once more. Captain Wayne Williams and Coach Eric Tipton s w Front Roll-. Mgr.

Last year ' s first-game loss to Mount Washington did not upset our lacrosse team ' s hopes for a great season. With such outstanding stars as Bob Miser, Bill Carpenter, and Hal Eubanks, the next eight opponents were each beaten by at least nine goals. All that was between us and the top-team rating was Navy. Victory seemed sure — Navy barely beat some of the same teams that lost to us by nine or ten goals. However, something happened in that final crucial game and the Middies beat us 10 to 7. None- theless, ours was a big team last year. Its captain, Bob Miser, was voted the best attack man in the nation. Several of our players were All Americans; several played in the North-South game and were outstanding. Six lettermen will be back in the midfield this year. Defense will be especially strong with Glen Adams and Dick Buckner returning. In the attack. Butch Darrell is expected to fill in the hole left by Bob Miser. Also Yearling Don Smith looks promising. Pat Hillier will probably be the star this year, with Rod Hannan and Sam Wilder, the new captain, scoring the most goals. Other stars such as Al Biddison and Bob Fuelhart will help bring in the victories, especially over Navy! LACROSSE Captain Sam Wilder and Coach Jim " Ace " Adams 233 i Too late . . .

Mention After completing last year ' s outstanding season, several of our lacrosse stars went to Massachusetts to represent the Corps in the All Star North-South game. In one of the best, closest, and most exciting games ever played, the cadets once more showed the country where the lacrosse players are. The Northern team centered around Bob Miser, Chuck Belan, and Hal Eubanks, who teamed up to account for one-half of the North ' s goals. Eddie Laurance stopped fifteen would-be Southern goals. As- sists by Eubanks and Miser and outstanding defending by Frasier and Laurance caused the game to be as close as it was. All of our players were commended for their performance, especially Miser and Laurance, who won top honors. Biddison takes command 234 Coach Lief Nordlie and Captain Bob Cain Last year ' s tennis team had a rather successful season with nine victories and eight losses, most of which were to the big Ivy League teams. Most of the stars are back and, along with the best from the old Plebe team, they promise even more wins this season, with hopes of beat- ing even Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. Jim Peterson and Don Voss will probably fill in the top two positions again this year. Don ' s Yearling brother, Diddy Voss, will probably be in third place with Lee Sager fourth. Judging from his record on the Plebe team last season, Diddy will be a great asset when the going gets rough in games with the Ivy League teams and especially Navy. Sandy Stewart, Captain Bob Cain, and Yearlings will fill the remaining positions. We have the team this year so let ' s take them all . . . LET ' S BEAT NAVY!

We finished off the season undefeated and won the Eastern IntercoUegiates for the first time. The combination of fine golfers with that unbeatable Army spirit and the inspiration, leadership, and instruction provided by Coach Walter Browne were responsible for the unde- feated season. We have good reason to expect this year ' s golf team to match or even surpass the records set in the past season. Although we lost our top three players, there are four returning First Classmen who have played in the top seven positions ever since their Yearling year. Several Second Classmen will start out in the fifth, sixth, and seventh positions and four or five good prospects from the old Plebe team will give added balance and depth to the squad. This year ' s team has all they need — ability and spirit coupled with the close supervision of a great coach — to go all the way again in the coming season.

Football was better than ever with many good teams battling for the Brigade Championship. In the exciting final game, Company A-1 defeated powerful K-2 to take the title. Out on the tennis courts, too, A-1 ended up supreme when their team beat that of Company 1-2. However, even with two Brigade Championships, A-l ' s standing was fourth in their regiment — an indication of how close the competition was this year. In soccer, the Second Regiment came back with Company D-2, first place in the regiment, sweeping the field. In an exciting contest, they were able to stop a mighty C-I team. This regiment ' s other victory went to Company G-2, whose golf team beat D-l ' s golfers. K-2, second in their regiment in intramural stand- ings, lost their track meet to Company I- 1 in one of the best contests in years. I-l, close to the top in football and all other intramurals and now the Brigade Champs in track, became second only to E-1 in regimental stand- ings. E-1, who won no Brigade titles, had the highest final standing in the 1st Regiment with good teams in all events. B-2 put up a good fight in triathlon, but lost to D-1, whose team swept its regiment. Fall intramural contests were never more exciting or spirited than during the fall of I960. i So far, so good 238 ysm . ' V m i ■ ' . " .

This change came as a shock to many who expected to spend the winter in peaceful hibernation, but when the season began, we found that it provided a great chance to relax from the rigors of academics. Those who went overboard for winter intramurals chose boxing or wrestling as their sports. In these con- tests the regiments split; K-2 ' s wrestling team beat M-1 for the title, and I-l beat K-2 for the boxing title. The Second Regiment won two other contests. F-2 beat B-1 to become the handball champs. In the pool, M-2 beat A-l ' s water polo team to win the title. The First Regiment atoned for last winter ' s debacle by taking four out of the seven titles. E-1 beat B-2 for the squash title; L-1 beat E-2 in basketball with a score of 58-51; and G-1 beat M-2 to win the volleyball cham- pionship. The only sport where we get to use weapons Intermurder Basketball — referees ' nightmare And I signed up for voUeybal 241 The spring intramurals of the I960 season were com- pletely dominated by the Second Regiment. B-l ' s water polo team fought to the top of the First Regiment only to be beaten by M-2 in a smashing 8- 1 defeat. F- 1 ' s top tennis team was downed 3-0 by K-2. The C-2 badminton team took the Brigade Championship with a 7-2 victory over K-1. The soccer championship went to Company D-2, and F-2 beat L-1, the top softball team in the First Regiment, with a score of 11-5. The only really close contest was in cross-country, where B-2 nudged out I-l by one point. With this victory all the Brigade Champion- ships ended up in the Second Regiment. Spring intramurals have always proved to be hard- fought contests, with a high competitive spirit between the companies. This spring ' s events should be even more interesting than usual, with the First Regiment striving to avenge last year ' s losses, and with lacrosse added to the new voluntary program.

It is from the company frame of reference that we, hke those who have gone before us, will remember in later years our stay at USMA. It is in the com- pany that we went about the actual routine of cadet life. Here our closest friendships and associations were forged. Here we established those inter-class relationships that are necessary to insure the continuity of the Academy as one chain of command succeeds another each year. With these ninety-odd men we ate, played intramurals, and generated a store of side-splitting anec- dotes to savor in the years to come. Yes, we will never forget our own little segment of the Corps. n A section edited by MARTIN L. GANDERSON 3 BRIGADE STAFF SS Vanderbush, A.; Graves. H.; Hannon, H.; Holmberg. B.; Harmon, R.; Grigg, N.

Our ranks are thinner than when we first started our four years here, but the memories we have will linger on in our years for all time to come. We have fought the TD and the Academic Departments as well, but through our years our spirit has gone untarnished. We have had our squabbles and our differences, but still we have remained steadfast and united. From the first we thought of ourselves as the best, and that we have striven to prove it in every way. Now the doors are opened again, and we will spill out into the four winds to apply what we have learned. We leave behind the memories of the grey walls, of past acquaintances, and friends and start anew. And as Rudyard Kipling would tell us each, " Yours is the Earth and everything that ' s in it. . . . " 253 No one man could hold us down, so ' 61 plowed through Happy Hal, J.B., Sam, and the Rookie. With this outstanding cast as our guides we emerged from the catacombs of Beast Barracks into a most delightful sequence of experiences: Plebe year was holy hell, and Plebe Christmas just as dull. Buckner was a typical chance to excel while rustling through the bushes and climbing the rocks of Flirtation Walk. With Cow Year everything changed. We were as bright as shining lights, fired with vigor and the desire to make Quality our Habit, and somewhere along the line the boys upstairs goofed. Pious B-1, perpetually on the Dean ' s other list, friends of the area, and rack rats took the Superintendent ' s Award ( someday they will learn ) . The First Class Trip brought us to amiable financial understanding with our Latin neighbors on the other side of the bridge. Then it came, the beginning of the end, but we should all re- member that this end is only the beginning of a long and loyal service to our country. C ' mon, get serious.

To date, neither of them have quite re- covered from the shock. We had those who made their mark early, Gene ' s major " A " plebe year. Yearling year saw our red curtains come and go while Jay slugged it out with the Graphics Department. Who of us will ever forget: Chip Wanner at reveille — Stacy Bragg watching snow fall — Jim Haise and Dick Behrenhausen per- petually packing — Jim Struve playing " Beanbag of the Universe " — Dick Yule flex- ing? Cow year saw the big move to the Hilton-on-the-Hudson. Tacs came and went, but the Rat Pack grew in experience and achievement. Hampy kept drawling while Bob Oliver punched his way into the hearts of the OPE. Art ' s hi-fi grew in volume, size, and coolness, while most of us fought the Battle of Thayer Hall. Firstie year saw Bruce, Will and Gene get stripes a-plenty, and Rog got his well-deserved stars. We leave with a few unsolved mysteries: did Jay Cook really mimeo his love letters? What attraction did Beast hold for Will Conley? Will Dickie fall? Will Ham and the Slugger go back to Mexico City to stay? We were a motley crew, but the joys and sorrows we have seen will spark many a future meeting. The spirit is willing and the flesh is ready.

Examples of this can be seen by the scarcity of visitors among the plebes to Apache Pass and Hell ' s Half Acre, home of D-1. Our area squad has never been under- strength, and our percentage of men on the Dean ' s other list has never been exceeded by another. Our records are many, and we are proud of them. We ran through three tacs, each of whom received a promotion as a reward for his courage to remain with us. Our inter- murder ledger is forever larger on one side than the other — the negative side. Our 2-2 reads like a novel, and that form from headquarters which begins, " For . . . " is never without some mention of us. Graduation will come and go, but our memories will remain. We always managed to march onto the Plain at the end of the column and leave near the beginning of the column. We did keep our time there to a minimum. Also our Christmas parties will not be forgotten. Yes, in more ways than one, we kept the tradition, " ' 61, in Delta One, Second to None! " " Where ' d they put my doggone B-4 bag?

And there were those unfor- gettable rallies, touring Europe, the rush to be first on leave, on weekend, and on the D-list. A few bit the dust along the way — Kee-mo-sabee, what am I doin ' here? — but, those who take the sheepskin will always remember Easy-One, a congenial atmosphere, loved by all with the ability to eye-ball it in — it will always remain with us. Best of luck to you and remember — no matter what the odds are — always win the parties! 261 Big F-1, under the able leadership of Roy Armstrong and the " Greasy One, " Joe Maio, moved ahead at a rapid rate to gold bars time.

From the day they entered G- 1 from 4th New Cadet Company, this class suffered only two resignees, two turn- backs, and one transfer to another company. G-l ' s Class of ' 61 dominated every class activity in which they participated, PFT, PAT, and obstacle course scores beat all other companies. Leading the athletic parade were such Corps Squaders as Serge Olive, the " Mad Russian, " Harry " the Horse " Miller, Ed Smith, Tom Mercer, Bill Sievers, Basil Manly Parks, and Billy Deuel. Academically, Pete Boylan, Terry Kirk- patrick, Rod Bartholomew, and star men Dan Halpin and Howie Roberts are exam- ples of G-l ' s Brain Trust. Bob Worthy upheld the Dean ' s other list, prodded by Funk Habic and Bill Clancy. Frank Gillespie, Mike Coyle, and John Solomon left their marks in academics and other activities. Perhaps the outstanding feature of this group, though, was its ability, or should we say propensity, to have fun while they excelled. Leading the fun was Billy Mackie, " the Flying Finn, " a legend in his time, Bert Custer, The Honorary First Captain of the Area Squad, Jim Altmeyer, the only man who ever maxed the Area. Nick Gilbert, Kizer Bazan, Bob Bunton, and Dean Frazier shared in the mirth, making valuable contributions in every field of endeavor.

" Butch ran the battalion and also ran a mean halfback for Little Rabble. Shifty and Bruce have taken care of the academic end in short order, with always enough tenths to put everybody in the Corps pro! Bn.tce wielded a wicked lacrosse stick too, and his roommate, " smiling Drew " , was a real mainstay of the swimming team. The runts in H- 1 were real standouts, too. Bob with his unseen fastball and " Ralph " , singing and strumming with the Spirits, were always stars. Of course, we can ' t pass over the noteworthy contribution to research and development by " Miland " , whose sea gull-borne antenna only added another name to the area squad. Most of the time peace reigned in H-1, but the Greco-Italian wars between Paisano and X-nose came close to being handled by the UN. Then, too, H-1 almost lost a would-be Honor-Rep when Todd, coming from the hills of Vir- ginia, arrived at Beast and found cadets wearing shoes. So as H- 1 loses a great bunch of Rabble Rousers, the Army gets a real capable group of leaders. " Hello, out there. " ■ -g ' Second Class: Front Row: Price, D. M.; Petty, W. D Lane, R. L.; Jones, D.

July ' 57 saw not only integration introduced in runt land, but also the coming of the foremost athletic director, of the Corps of Cadets, " Coach " De Moya, under whom ' 61 went through 4 years of intermurder, academics, and extended conflict with the TD. Starting with a large group of recruits, we were sporadically reinforced by hand- picked stalwarts from ' 60. But " Inquisition One " was to see ' 61 reduced to a hard core of veterans as a result of extended and bitter battles of academics. The Honors of battle fall upon this core of veterans who sustained the hardships of severe winters, oppressive summers, and detached duties in foreign fields. This campaign brought lessons of value beyond appraisal. Now a new challenge is offered to us, and it is with renewed vigor that we accept the task of service to the nation. Morale is high, we are clothed in the confidence of experience, and the combatants are tried and proved. We proceed to the " other fields " and " other days " bearing the fruits gleaned from a four year tilling of knowledge and experience, secure in the conviction that the task well done throughout these 4 years is indicative of the future of ' 61 I-l. " Yeh, he got two months. ' On 2 July 1937 a new type of plebe came sauntering out of the old East Academic Building. They were like the rest of ' 61, but yet different; for, they were destined to be — the happy, go-lucky gang of the " Kappa Uno Fraternity. " We were a friendly group and even made friends with George Washington ' s horse on Trophy Point. Yearling year found us still gay. Cow year we lear ned that the land of the midnight sun was really that small light bulb at the end of the hall. Now, however, it ' s time to bid " K Co " a final adieu. First Class year wasn ' t so bad, but if we could have got our privileges back, we wouldn ' t have been so sad. In looking back on our four years we can remember the good times — the day parade was rained out, the day intramurals were cancelled, the company parties in New York, and the day we got a stayback in Civil Engineering. With Graduation Day so near at hand, we seem to find ourselves rejecting our motto of " Not Obnoxiously Eager " and becoming just a little bit " eager " for Graduation. 1 First Class: Front Row: Ekman, M.

The Triple A found Roger a boon, and in intermurder Tom was a real tiger. Gutherie ' s poetry filled our hearts with mirth while dreams of Steve ' s tanks haunted our sleep. Charlie ' s left stood the test of time as did George ' s handball game. Our southern gentlemen, Don and Jim, never let us forget that the South would rise again, and Southern hospitality was never lacking at Al ' s girl ' s home. Lawyer Jim represented us well first class year and ' Wick ' s command of the news always filled us with envy. Pete found stars easy to come by; but he and Ray found that girls do bring trouble. Dave ' s guitar and Marty ' s wit kept us happy, while Mouse ' s mules always put on a good show as did Bill at the gymnastic meets. " While we can never forget those who we call classmates, we also remember those who left our ranks, Pete, Tom, Rod, George, and Mike. 272 - V. I I Second Class: Front Ron: Flint, D.; Tumelson, R.

This gnomiest company of gnome land was first introduced to seeing flankers on a permanent basis with our class. But, Yearling year came soon enough — the pad, war movies on Saturday nights, and T.V. in the 42nd. Oh yes, that slight difficulty — plebes having scratched B-plates on recognition day! Then — Cow year — invigorating, academically, and downright brutal, but not fatal. Again we lost no one to the Civilian Corps. And we had fun, highlighted by those parties, and projected parties, with the First Class. Then, our turn came. We brought a real and effective change in the operation of the Company. With close co-operation and friendship existing between the First Class and the other two upperclasses, as well as a more reasonable Company Fourth Class system, M-1 functioned efficiently and smoothly. We can certainly be proud of the Company as we knew it for four years, we can be equally proud of our contribution to it. May M- 1 ALWAYS — have a birds- eye view of the ginch at Grant, haze the drags on Sunday evening who think they can ' t be seen peeking out of the window beneath Mrs. Holland ' s office, BEAT the Tac, and in everything else remain — second to none. ■ SECOND REGIMENT STAFF: Aaronsohn, J.; Heiberg, W .; Knoblock, R.; Landry, D.; Har- rell, R.; Stokes, J. Second Regimental Staff 276 Memories of July, ' 57, curious-eager, we entered Hudson High. From the Staggering experience of Beast to the halls of the Alpha-Duce House; what a " Hell Week, " all eleven months. Soon it was Christmas; now we really got to know one another and to start the bonds that continued to grow over four long years. Many of our original number have since departed,, but what a four years for the twenty-one who remained. Products of our stay were: batt. commander, Riverboat Gambler, an AWOLer, a Bird, a tennis captain. Hoot Owl, colonel, an Injun lover, a homecoming queen, a " rassler " , a starman, those goats, the German Club Monopoly, 3 bears, a telegram scandal, a spy, Santa Claus, Plymouth Adventure, Sunday School teachers, a star gazer, a new frat house 5 doors down, Irma ' s fame, transfer of devotion from the Armor to the Marines, Glee Clubbers, the Jersey contingent, a sluggoid, we had our sackrats, lovers, Puritans, and drinkers; we played, laughed, and cried — always to- gether. Now as graduation breaks our merry band up, we go our separate ways, but — in spirit always, we ' ll be together, held by the strong bonds of four years of experiences we ' ll always recall when e ' er we meet. fS ll First Class: Front Row: Conant, R.; Coyne, T.; Cain, R.; Harden, M.; Secoml Ron.- Middlesteadt, R.; Skillman, J.; Alexander, T.; Baldwin, B.; Seltz, W.; Beckett, R.; McConncll, R.; Thin!

Mingled with the good friendship of these " runts " is that determination to do well in all fields. Hard work has put men on the Dean ' s List as Gordon, debater, Gerry, Bob G., and Cy S. The varied interests present among them are highlighted by Bob, our Pointer Bigwig, and epee and saber wielding Roland, Mike the skipper, and brown-boy wrestler George Shamblee. Yet, even this happy bunch needs personnel to see that everyone is around. First Sergeant Ken and his " chain " of Pit.

September 1957 and June 1961 are two months that will never be forgotten by the Class of ' 61 in Foxtrot Two. Our cadet grey was new in ' 57, and good times had long since been forgotten. June of 1961 brought forth great joy in addition to wives, gold bars, and new cars. As Plebes we were endowed by the Tactical Dept. with Capt. " E. P. " Forrester. F-2 was his train and it stopped whenever he said " whoa. " Next came the " Duke " who stayed with us through " thick and thin " (mostly thick) during our Yearling and Cow years. Our last steps toward Graduation were ably directed by Maj. Tallman, who may have been last, but a long shot from being least. With three Tacs we couldn ' t possibly go wrong, although at times one of them may have disagreed with this assumption. June Week, 1961 came like a thief in the night, stealing away our well used greys, and putting in their place Army Blues. Thus ends another episode in the life and loves of Company F-2 ' s Class of ' 61. Our future is a starlit path, but our past cadet career as an integral part of the ever increasing Long Grey Line will never be forgotten. 288 1 S ' I ■■ ' • ' l l ' -vl-«lf.f f = :Sj i HHeiM ' • ; •!

Our eating privileges were reinstated Yearling year, but the end was nowhere in sight. By the time Cow year arrived, we began to learn that there were twenty-three other companies in the Corps that operated in a similar manner to our own H-2, the only difference being their insignificant contri- bution to the Area Squad. From the blissful solace of the lost fifties, we were " inte- grated " into the Corps for the grand finale. The facilities of our new home included the sublime guidance of the Second Regimental Headquarters Tacs — all twelve of them. But the move, despite arguments to the contrary, did not help suppress the long ingrained habits of our class as the goats got goatier and the hives got hivier. Despite the loss of F. C. A., excessive demerits, and the never-ending parades, we can be proud of our steadfast adherence to our motto; " Never let them get you down.

Seldom in the annals of military history, has one unit been able to rest so much during the battle and we might have even taken our guide-on to area formations. Symbolizing our united front, (or rear), was the remarkable resemblance of our company drill roll to the last section variety. Never lacking in any class was the standard " Sir, I did not understand the question. " In spite of this ever waging battle, when they put the blue chips on the line, it was the runts who were buying bus tickets home. Our formations and mad charges to the mess hall were never looked upon as model performances, by the T.D., and the familiar cry of, " Let ' s start knocking off the lates! " contained less resolution than despair, but in spite of these indelicacies, our guide-on was never cold for lack of streamers. We lived and worked as no other company dared, most of us will find rules on the outside more restricting than the few we followed here, but in spite of all things, we will be thankful until our dying days for the privilege of serving M-2, and for the infinite traditions we came by. 301 - n ill (9f .M. J ' 302 With the coming of age of ' 61, the Long Gray Line stretches unbroken for a full 162 years. We have striven hard and under- gone much in order to join its ranks. Now we begin an even longer and more challenging struggle — the struggle to live up to the record and the standards that the graduates of the Academy have set so highly. It is a challenge from which we do not shrink. We are eager to prove ourselves worthy sons and heirs of USMA. We are proud that we have forged another link in the chain. 10 section edited by CHARLES T. WESTPHELING I ' !■ Oti 2 July 7 957 seven hundred and thirty-seien of us drifted together at West Point from eiery state in the Union, two territories that have since attained statehood, and several allied foreign lands. We have come a long way since then. The process of attrition has thinned our ranks to a meager 336, but the hardy core has survived. We have all felt the imprint of the Academy upon our lives, and to a certain extent tie have all been shaped by this force. Yet each of us remains very much an individual tvith a unique personality and a distinct set of interests and talents, hike the " average American, " the " typical cadet " is a mythical entity. No class, more- over, has had a richer or more varied compliment of temperaments, skills and fortes than the Class of 1961.

His winters were spent skiing and frolicking in that white stuff called " snow. " Spring meant water polo and his sticky-finger goal tending which led to an Olympic tryout. Always remembered for his spirit of compromise, he never had an enemy.

Ill 498 i nmg He designed a new interchange for radio traffic This AMF engineer, part of an AMF-U.S. Army team, solved the problem of traffic delays and personal danger in manual re-connection of jumpers when interchanging R.F. transmitters and antennas. His solution is a push-button-op- erated, coaxial crossbar switching system, using vacuum switches for circuit selection. A typical system consists of 4 transmitter inputs, 7 antenna outputs plus a dummy load, in a 4 X 8 matrix that can be mounted in a 19 " rack. It can be controlled locally or remotely over any type of communication network having a bandwidth of at least 200 cycles. AMF ' s coaxial crossbar switching system provides IOC?; flexibility in circuit path selection and accommo- dates power levels as high as 500,000 watts and frequencies up to 30 mega- cycles. It allows lOO ' ; utilization of all transmitting equipment. Stubs are automatically eliminated. To insure fail-safe operation, power is required for the vacuum switches only during change of con- dition. Selection rate: 1 per second. Operating transmitters are safety- interlocked to insure a load. There are no hazards from open wires or inadvertent application of power to dead-lined antennas.

In the Ford Family of Fine Cars, the most vulnerable body parts are galvanized zinc-coated to protect them against rust and corrosion. One important reason for the unusually quiet ride in the Ford Family of Fine Cars: They are cars in which the passenger compartments are sealed off completely from the moving parts of the engine, drive shaft, transmission, differential, and other parts of the power train. Rubber and other equally effective insulating materials are used to lock out most of this noise and vibration. One more reason for the quieter ride in the Ford Family of Fine Cars is the soundproofed fioors. Where other cars have only two layers of sound insulation, our cars have three layers of sound insulation. Each layer eliminates a different range of sound from rumbles to squeaks. As a result, very little noise gets through to the passenger compartment. Doors in the Ford Family of Fine Cars are stronger. They are braced with steel ribs. This means they are more rigid and therefore close tighter and quieter, reducing the likelihood of developing squeaks and rattles. If you compare door latches, you will see that in our cars they are bigger and heavier than door latches in other cars. This makes for a tighter, stronger grip which reduces the possi- bility of doors springing open under impact. Statistics show that passen- gers who remain inside the car in an accident are twice as safe. These are five of the many reasons we think you will find (upon compar- ing our cars with other cars ) that Ford Motor Company builds better bodies. i FORD • FALCON -THUNDERBIRD • COMET • MERCURY • LINCOLN CONTINENTAL 503 Congratu ations and Best Wishes To The C ass of 1961: From THE ARMY CO-OPERATIVE FIRE FORT LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS SINCE 1887 SSOC AT ON WORLD-WIDE FLOATER PERSONAL .
