Wit " u kwi " ! ?- (HiMaiTPRai . ii ' m .■.:M) h:m m The West Point Class of 7968 was born on a hot summer day in the 163rd year of the Military Academy. On that July First, 997 young men laid their civilian pasts behind them and strode through a gran- ite archway into a strange new world. There we were received by immaculate- ly uniformed figures who introduced us to the profession to which we had de- cided to dedicate our lives. Totally bewildered by our new sur- roundings, we realized that we were a long way from becoming the dashing military figures we had imagined our- selves as, and which we knew the public would expect us to be. Our new guardi- ans, however, wasted no time, but quickly began the task of molding us in their own image. And as that first day drew to a close we marched with timid pride to Trophy Point where, before the admiring eyes of families and friends, we raised our hands, repeated a few solemn words, and . . . we were cadets. On that day we began a course that would end four years later when we were commissioned as officers of the United States Army. This book is a chronicle of those four years. Its words and pictures tell the story of our class. And although the story is specifically that of the Class of 7965, it belongs, in a larger sense, to all cadets: For specific events and customs may change over the years, but the history of one class re- mains, in many respects, the history of all classes. In particular, those classes which follow immediately after us will find that our story is very nearly their own. Thus it is that in these pages will be found not only cadets of the graduating class, but also those of the present underclasses. THE HOWITZER has been entrusted to the Class of 1968 for one year, but it re- mains a publication of the Corps of Ca- dets. 1968 HOWITZER PLEBE SECTION YEARLING SECTION cow SECTION 166 FIRSTY SECTION 222 b LYNDON B.

General Jannarone ' s decorations include the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star Medal, and the Army Commendation Medal. 17 I PLEBE YEAR We came to West Point that first morning with mixed feel- ings of apprehension and antic- ipation. After initial processing in the gymnasium, we were taken in small groups to Central Area. An enlisted man accom- panied us as far as the friendly side of a sallyport, aimed us through, and with a low ' ' Good luck ' left us to our fate. At the other end we were formally welcomed to West Point, as have been so many others be- fore us, with the cordial words, " Drop that bag! " i I 20 " And you ' ll notice sir that nny hair is shorter than any of theirs. " 21 Our new universe, we quickly discovered, was one of shouting faces, running feet, and straining chins. Our welcoming comnnittee was made up of 250 evil dispositions wearing uniforms. After being thoroughly coached in the art of dropping suitcases we learned, in rapid succession, to stand at attention, salute, and report. The last skill was put to an immediate test during our first pleasant encoun- ter with the company First Sergeant. Then began a seemingly end- less succession of trips to various widely scattered stations, each journey punctuated by a chat with our friendly neighborhood Red Sash Man. Sir, New Cadet First Sergeant 22 " You ' ll like the trim continental cut this year, and of course they come with matching coat and ac- cessories. " In this manner we visited the cadet store and other supply points from which we re- turned bent under the weight of bulging barracks bags. We went to the barber shop, where merciless shears sent treasured vesti- ges of civilian life tumbling to the floor. And, as a prel- ude of things to come, we went to drill instruction, for we had to learn enough to face our public for the first time that afternoon in for- mation. , , a little off the top, please.

And who could guess the thoughts that ran through our heads as we lay in our bunks that nights Will we ever for- get that day? But it was over, and another on the way. 25 l ' Rl Upper Right: The uphill trot to the obstacle course is a perennial favorite. Bayonet training taught us the aggressive spirit of hand-to-hand combat, and allowed us to release our pent-up hostilities. Beast seems almost like a dream now, but it was real enough at the time. After the initial shock had worn off, the days settled into a routine of drill, calisthenics, lectures, and myri- ad other diversions. To break the monotony, there were planned group activities such as shower and clothing formations — grand old in- stitutions now lost forever. Bayonet training taught us the aggressive spirit of hand-to-hand combat, and allowed us to release our pent-up hostilities. 26 During the first day we had been introduced to our squad leaders for the first time. For the next eight wee cs these in- dividuals and their Second Detail counterparts would at once be slave drivers, big brothers, and mother hens. Our early impressions and much of our future attitudes as cadets would depend on them. Not for at least two years, when we ourselves stepped into their shoes, would we fully realize the magnitude of their task. Having thought of ourselves as a fairly intelligent lot, we were surprised to learn that there were vast quan- tities of essential information of which we had been totally unaware. Being in complete accord with our upperclass advisors that such a deficiency should not go uncorrected, we soon made Scott ' s Fixed Opin- ion, the Definition of Leather, and much similar lore part of our permanent repertoire. In so doing, we be- came thoroughly acquainted with the Plebe Bible, and many midnight sessions by the light from the halls made the bond a firm one. 28 Bugle Notes Probably the least-known but most-disliked group of upperclassmen in the Corps is the In- sidious staff of Bugle Notes, for it is they who de- velop and publish the little bible with which the unsuspecting plebe becomes so familiar during his fourth class year. Under the leadership of editor Ed Hobbs and OIC Major W. S. de Camp, the 968 staff strove to add new dimensions to Bugle Notes by including in it many of the customs, egends, and traditions of the Corps previously unpublished. Also, the patches and ribbons sec- tions, as well as many of the illustrations, under- went major revision. It is hoped that 72 enjoys the inheritance bequeathed to it by ' 68. 29 One of the longest-remembered parts of Plebe Year is of course the dining proce- dure for freshmen. We quicl ly discov- ered that we had much to learn about proper table decorum in the Cadet Mess. Meals at West Point are often described in official publications as ' ' family style ' ' , but from our seats at the foot of the table we often wondered whose families ate like this. 30 These expeditions provided opportunities for us to prac- tice basic individual combat techniques, like we had al- ways seen in the movies. Spe- cial attention was given to teaching us the soldier ' s most important skill, the effective use of his weapon. 3( Some of the biggest highlights of that first summer were the field training exercises. We often took long walking tours, the better to ap- preciate our beautiful campus and its environs. 32 These expeditions provided opportu- nities for us to practice basic individual connbat tecliniques, like we had always seen in the movies. Special attention was given to teaching us the soldier ' s nnost important skill, the effective use of his weapon. ' - V ..V • •• »• J 33 RIFLE CLUB Under the able guidance of SGM A. J. O ' Neill, Army ' s experts in the use of the basic infantry weapon, slightly souped-up of course, shot their way to another spectacular season. Following the example of " Hawk-eye " MacLane, the club president, the team defeated all comers in intercollegi- ate competition and placed several men in the top brackets in the National, and First Army Open Tournaments. With the " hotshot " bunch of underclassmen that is coming up this year, the rifle team ' s championship act will be better than ever next year. ji. Beast Barracks culminated with the Plehe Hike, a day long trek over hill and dale, but mostly hill, to the far corner of the reservation. At Lake Frederick a three-day vacation of sorts awaited us. This was our first opportunity to relax a bit as a group and get to know each other. But the sleeping, sunbathing, movies, and shows were soon over with. As we marched bac to West Point, we knew that Beast, our first big obstacle, was behind us. Ominous warnings, howev- er, led us to expect little improvement of our lot. 36 West Point became a teeming anthill of activity as its sons returned from all over the country. Reorgy week was like the first day all over again. Having been accustomed to a numer- ical advantage over our tormentors, we now found that there were three snarling upperclassmen for every one of us. The big event for us that week came one afternoon when we marched onto the Plain. Passing in review for the first time with the Corps, we heard a tune that was to become a part of our lives. The ' ' New Cadet ' ' changed to " Cadet " , and in spite of our lowly position we could not but feel a measure of pride at having been formally accepted by the Corps, into the Corps. 37 Completion of Beast Barracks certainly did not portend any new life of ease for mennbers of the Fourth Estate. But it was an important milestone. And at this juncture, we are pleased to introduce THE CLASS OF 1971 eaTt» ill js iSTK23S rli -l,S U j5 ' :iS, ' s ' ?- - 38 FOURTH CLASS Front Row: Mohr.

S.B.DICK From the first ' Take Boards " Plebe year to the last " Cease Work " yearling year, the Department of Mathe- matics had to be one of the most studied courses we had, mainly because we had it about twice as much as we did anything else. Each night as we prepared ourselves for the upcoming battle with " Green Death " or " Morrill ' s Marauder " we prayed for the nonexistent " stay back " , knowing full well that the " friendly Math Department " was waiting for us. But armed with our slide rules and C.R.C. ' s and battling every foot of the way, we managed to make it through Plebe and Yearling years. For some of us it was the end of the long rough road, but for others, the next two years held the cherished " Take Boards " that could be heard coming from the Advanced Calculus rooms.

But for everything pleasant we must give a part of ourselves and the " haven " of plebe year was no exception. After trudging six flights of stairs, twice a day, three times a week, we played engineer in the morning and lost ourselves in the realms of space (dreamland?) in the afternoon. But no matter where we are, whether it be on a youthful mountain top, or on a matured river, we will always remember Colonel Broshous and his cheerful band. Front Row: LTC K. R.

SUTHERLAND That grey day, now dim in our memories, when we first joined the Long Grey Line, we became quite aware of man ' s ability to communicate. We could not wait for the academic year to begin so that we could learn to communicate more effectively. We soon discovered that the English taught in the classroom was not the same as the English demonstrated In the barracks. After nine months of concentrated study of " classroom English, " with emphasis on format, we were sure that we knew all there was to know about it. hlowever, Yearling year showed us that we were not yet experts. Those of us who survived Yearling English had a year and a half of peace before our last encounter with the foe. This last battle was worsened by thoughts of cars, gradua- tion, and marriage. Victorious in the end, we know that English has been one of our most rewarding courses — in fact we may even use It someday. Slmroe, Jr., MAJ F. J. Calverase, MAJ W. S. May, MAJ C. W. Sullinger.

The goal set for us was the ability to communicate in a foreign country. The accom- plishment was the tri-weekly torture of losing tenths without understanding why or how. After two years, the plague ended for most of us. (Those who had not yet learned how to ask where the bathroom or bar was) — The better ones continued their language Instruction with electives during cow year. The course however, will prove to be Invaluable. We are now confident that we can talk our way through a foreign country, so long as it ' s the right one_ 3 M Front Row: MAJ Clary, W.

KOBES From the first bloody nose in Plebe boxing to the last gasping yard of the PCPT mile " Firstie " year, the Office of Physical Education has been with us. Plebe year they offered a mul+itude of different activities: Boxing, Swim- ming, Wrestling, and Gymnastics. Of course, if you were lucky enough to validate one of these, you could get a brief but sweet introduction to Yearling Year P.E. which offered handball, squash, and volleyball. As well as teaching us something about individual sports, OPE taught us, through intramurals, the values of team sports. Never one to give up an opportunity to help us enjoy ourselves, OPE was there at Buckner and June encampment to give us first hand practice in Instructor Training. And we will not forget how the Obstacle Course, Physical Fitness Test, and Physical Combat Proficiency Test, right after a long week- end, gave us the opportunity to develop a strong competi- tive spirit and a sense of self pride in our personal cojiditionlng.

And we would soon learn to love the semi-annual steeplechase through the gym. J 75 For those interested enough in some of the academic subjects to want to pur- sue their interest outside the class- room, there are extracurricular activi- ties that provide this opportunity. Here are some of the organizations that give enlightening presentations at West Point and, in upper class years, the chance for a trip or two away. RUSSIAN CLUB The Russian Club has been a growing, dynamic society in this past year. With Dave Knecht at the reins, the club had more projects, trips, and things to do than ever before. Fifty Years of Communism, a play directed by Andy Weilkoszew- skl, was the master work, but trips to Washington, New York, and several girl ' s colleges in the area added the zest that makes any club go. Bruce Parry and Jack Reed, the behind-the- scenes men, were helped immeasurably by others like Russ Roux, Jim Narel, Mike Cerrone and Jim Stettler. With this past, we bid our members " dos sved- ania " . 50 DAYS 20000 MILES in the Soviet Union DISCUSSION SLIDES IhjHAJPLUMMU 1910 MONDAY 16 OCT Electricity Ucture HoN .Bortlett Hall SNHSMCOm tkeftUSSIAN CLUb ALL INTERESTED CADETS ARE IMVITED GERMAN CLUB Working closely with the officer representative. President Barry Hittner obtained an additional trip to Washington, D.C. for the German Club. That trip, along with the traditional- trip to the Steuben Society provided good opportunities for " Bruder- schaft und Bier trinken! " The juniors can perhaps help add variety to next year ' s meetings by at- tempting more meetings such as this year ' s " Oktoberfest.

Its SPANISH CLUB The Spanish Club, under the leadership of Mike Ruiz, club president, sponsored several activities and discussions to stimulate interest in Latin America. Particularly beneficial were the discussions led by officers of the Foreign Area Specialists group and trips to the Inter- American-Defense College where cadets were allowed to take part in seminars dealing with the defense of the Western Hemisphere. Through these activities a better understand- ing of Latin America, its peoples, its customs, its language, and its significance to an army officer was obtained. ASTRONOMY CLUB During AY 1967-68 the Cadet Astronomy Club, headed by Major Reed L. Stone and Cadet Tony Ambrose, engaged in a myriad of activities. Among the more sophisticated projects undertaken by members were celestial photography through the Club ' s Questar telescope and the instrument in the Bartlett hiall Observation Dome, and astronomical observation utilizing closed-circuit television. An extensive renovation of the clubroom was completed, and monthly meetings featured informative lectures by Club officers and astronomy instructors. The real highlights of the year ' s activities were the trips which included visits to the Hayden Planetarium, Philadelphia ' s Franklin Institute and Fels Planetarium. 77 78 MATHEMATICS FORUM Under the leadership of President John Throclc- morton and the supervision of Officers-in-Charge Major Valence and Captain Skinner, the members of the Mathematics Forum delved Into the intricacies of the mathematical world. An educational and en- joyable year was had by all who participated in the program which consisted of monthly lectures by instructors from the academic departments, com- plemented by trips to Vassar and New York City. CHINESE CLUB Newe -t of the Academy ' s Language Clubs, the Chinese Language Club h gd a highly successful first year, fv eetlngs Included ilms on Nationalist China, lectures by our civilian nstructor Mr. Chang on aspects of modern China, and several guest lectures. Members (all 25 of them) h ad the benefit of expanding their appreciation of the Language and culture in New Yor k ' s own Chinatown. FRENCH CLUB The Impact of France and French culture can be found In many areas In the world today. The French Club sought to help its members become more familiar with this French influence. Trips to New York City were an opportunity as well as a pleasant diver- sion. The club Invited several officers to meetings to share their experiences with the French military forces and as travelers In France. A highlight of the year was the trip to the College Mllitaire Royal at Saint-Jean, Quebec. A variety of films complemented the agenda. The efforts of the club officers and QIC Maj Schmidt, and especially the active interest of all members, combined to make this year an enjoyable and rewarding one. PORTUGUESE CLUB The Portuguese Language Club, under the guidance of pres- ident Marv Wooten and the auspices of OIC Maj. Grubbs, undertook to broaden the cadets ' cultural understanding of the Braslllan people and language by means of a well-rounded pro- gram. The agenda for the year Included lectures on the develop- ment of the Brasillan society, attendance at a formal ball sponsored by the Brasllian Center in New York, and participation In numerous other activities designed to promote understanding of the problems inherent in a growing nation. An attempt was made to insure that all activities were informative, as well as enjoyable, for all concerned. 79 Along with new adversities, our first fall at West Point also brought a few pleasures, and the anticipation of more. We let off steam at rallies and football games, and that sport also pro- vided our first opportunities to venture back into the outside world. The romantically inclined enjoyed hops and shared pints of ice cream in Lee Hall. For those with no nearby social contacts, the Holland Tunnel was available to the daring. r I CADET HOSTESS Located deep below Lee Hall Is the office of the Cadet hlostess, a quiet port in the storm of cadet life. Inside this parlor-like office we find the three mothers of the Corps, Mrs. Holland, Mrs. Eyster, and Mrs. Schandler (not pictured.) Through the able management of these wonderful ladies, accommodations at the Hotel Thayer and in the surrounding area, beautiful dates, and an extensive schedule of hops and dances are coordinated into the relaxing social life that Is offered to the Corps every year. 81 The highlight of that first fall was the win over Navy in Philadelphia. This victory ended a long dry spell, and happy cadets celebrated ap- propriately. And then, yes, it was Christmas, and the Plebes of ' 68 were going home. As we left, we . could feel the granite foundations of West Point trembling at this outrage to tradition, but we didn ' t look back. 82 1 I- " ' Mi ' ) I at tii ' s ve didn ' t Returning reluctantly from Christ- mas Leave, we plunged into the first of eight semi-annual term- end ordeals. This cathartic process squeezed from us everything we had learned, and often every tenth we possessed. It was not a happy time, for some did not make it, and friendships that had grown firm through months of hardship were severed. Sadly, we knew that there was nothing to do but close the holes in our ranks and press ahead. 83 And So, Thankfully, Time Passed Sljje t)xf oxk xmt$.

Spring leave arrived. We found our- selves in sole occupation of the cadet domain, and were pleased to show our campus to visiting parents and girls. 88 I visited West Point for the first time at Spring Leave during Bill ' s Plebe year, and I had a wonderful time. The boys kind of ruled the place because they were the only ones there then. Every day was different for me — especially when it snowed! ... in March, of all things! You know, West Point is a lot bigger than I expected, and it ' s even bigger when you are on foot. I had thought Bill was kidding when he said to bring walking shoes. Talk about walking — the boys had to run back to the barracks every night because they always stayed to the very last minute. The long overcoats didn ' t make it any easier for them, poor things . . . but they must sacrifice for the girls. I really did like the uniforms — so impressive! But the one with all the buttons is not the most comfortable to dance with. The parade was cool. I didn ' t really know what was going on, but I took lots of movies, and guess what! They were all double exposed. I was sick! I had always thought that West Point was going to make Bill grow up, but I guess it won ' t. He was just as silly and crazy as ever, but that ' s O.K.— that ' s the way I like him. GRETCHEN KREIG Baton Rouge, Louisiana Fiance Class of 68 89 90 Then, with the gradual onset of warmer weather, we realized that it was almost, as we like to say, all over.

It was here that the Yearlings of ' 68, from the four corners of the country, returned for what we had been assured would be the best summer of our lives. Here, in an almost summer camp setting, without a gran- ite wall in sight, we would work and play for two months in an atmosphere quite different from that at West Point. ' : 94 95 I Each branch got a crack at us, although it seemed that the Infantry took its turn several times. We were allowed to romp and stomp to our hearts ' content through the green hills of Orange County, New York. In squad and pla- toon tactics we maneuvered tirelessly against that vicious, cunning universal enemy, the Aggressor. 96 ■•S " ' lfl5«!»»fe ' " • liVN ' i, : ' • The airmobile exercise treat- ed us to a scenic helicopter tour of the West Point area, and demonstrated that even the foot soldier, who for centuries has taken pride in his wretched estate, can look forward to better things. 97 When Armor ' s turn came, something new had been added: instead of com- ing to us, the blitzkrieg branch invited us to its own parlor. For a week we roared around Ft. Knox, Kentucky on the backs of iron dragons that belched noise and fire and had little respect for natural vegetation. Zipping through the turns of the Knox Grand Prix, we were pleased to discover that, with power steering and automatic shift, a tank handles just like the family sedan. i 98 . I, m TT 99 100 1 _ .

With a large array of hostile automobile bodies and painted rocks to engage, plus such inviting targets of op- portunity as Anthony ' s Nose and the Bear Mountain picnic area, the artillerists of ' 68 rap- idly absorbed the fundamentals of the Greatest Killer on the Battlefield. 102 lift; ' ' The Signal Corps taught us the value of battlefield communications. Much to the consternation of wirepower men everywhere, the airwaves became billed with such new code words as ' ' boodle ' ' , " hot skinny " , and " white trou " . We couldn ' t call home on our handy portable communications cen- ters, but some resourceful individuals discovered that local TV stations came in loud and clear. 104 105 With complete impartiality, the Engi- neers devoted equal time teaching us to build things and to blow things up. Most of us already knew better than to think too seriously about becoming Engineers. But we enjoyed the training anyway and, through practical exer- cise, learned that no obst acle is too wide to be bridged; no area too secure to be mined and booby trapped. 106 u 107 " .

Benning, we took a one-week cram course in hand- to-hand combat, mountaineering, am- bushing, raiding, and similar disci- plines essential to the education of the properly trained officer. Our memories of Recondo will always be happy ones of rain, sleepless nights, sour-tasting swamp water, and red rocks, culminat- ing with the acrobatic graduation exer- cises above and within Popolopen Lake. ■ n rhTT - 109 ' ' ' ' M BI ) i k !

The weap- ons committee familiarized us with more of the tools of our trade as we filled the air with various types of ord- nance. - -H. ' ; V 4 J i ' , -S -: I :., tf Other branches also got a crack at us, including the Medics, Transportation Corps, and Chemical Corps, which demonstrated very convincingly to tearful yearlings that it had the right stuff to deal with rabbits or cadets. i 112 I ' . y....z. When OMI wasn ' t keeping us busy, OPE took over the job. Rising early to greet us, they helped us start off our day not only on the right foot but at the double time. The best thing about rev- eille runs is that the worst part of the day is over within a half hour of awak- ening. We were also provided with an obstacle course (to help us feel more at home) and a highly imaginative confi- dence course, guaranteed to either im- prove one ' s confidence or destroy it al- together. And Instructor Training taught us that there is more to leading PT than the ability to count to four re- peatedly. 114 But let not the impression be given that it was all work at Camp Buckner. Year- ling summer offers more opportunities for recreation than any other time at the Military Academy. Lazy afternoons spent on the beach or under the brown boy i according to individual prefer- ence, allowed us to recuperate from the effects of training. The more ener- getic had access to many sports in and out of the water. I 15 Buckner was the perfect place to enter- tain the ladies. An evening at the movies, a quiet canoe ride, dancing on the beach, a tender momentout on ' ' The Walk ' ' — all these we will remember, as well. The highlight of the Camp Buckner social season is a three-day round of festivities, deeply rooted, naturally, in West Point tradition. Tor many of us, this will remain a golden moment of our cadet days. 116 117 d With Buckner behind us, the Class of | 68 prepared to go back to school: some with feelings of gloom, others, of relief, but all eager to try out life as West Point upperclassmen. As we look back to this point in the history of our class, it seems an appropriate place to introduce the present Third Class, the CLASS OF 1970 Front Row: Cass, J.; Montieth, F,: Hartman.

Returning to the place where recently we had known so much care and un- certainty, we found it now inhabited by strange beings who moved stiffly about, as though in a trance, and yelled at any and all who attempted conversa- tion with them. Reorganization Week, which had been such a ferment of ac- tivity the previous year, was now a rela- tive bag-out. Thus do yearlings get an early start at the ever popular cadet pastime. " Tl?!! - 0 A v . j m N k 138 The most obvious change to the scene we had left in June was the initiation of the construction pro- gram. We re- turned to find parts of the har- racl s undergoing demolition. All who asked the crane operator for a whack at the old walls were, how- ever, refused. For the rest of the fall we watched with interest as work crews dug holes, filled them, then dug them up again. The con- struction would he a part of our lives for the rest of our cadet days. We will remem- ber it as off limits areas, the noisy clatter of jack- hammers, man- datory expansion briefings, and mighty walls ris- ing out of the ground. 139 Those who had thought Yearling Year was going to be just a free ride were in for a rude awal ening when we re- newed our acquaintance with . . . ACADEMICS 140 Plebe Year, it seems, was just a warm- up. Old friends such as math and lan- guages were joined by the likes of physics and chemistry, with which we would spend late nights contemplating the mysteries of the universe. rri4 J- 141 OFFICE OF MILITARY INSTRUCTION COL. H. F.T.HOFFMAN The Office of Military Instruction has ifr ' fofc cut out; " to provide a broad military education rather than individual proficiency in the technical duties of junior officers. " They begin this job with a course in the history of our proud Army. We then moved to tactical operations and situations. Map reading was one of our most valuable courses. In the upperclass years, we learned how to move and command our units. During first class year, we studied the situation of today ' s Army and what was ahead for us. Then, the lucky ones made their choice from the six combat arms: Engineers, Artillery, Armor, Signal Corps, In- fantry, and Military Intelligence. First Row (BoHom), Left to Right: CPT W. G.

But it was still difficult to fire and maneuver in such foreign terrain.

MacWILLIAMS Triumphantly returning from Buckner, we were war- like, defiant veterans of Recondo, able to smash anything that ventured into our path. Or so we thought. We soon learned that the slide for life was nothing compared to a trip " down the tubes " in Chemistry, hlaving voluminous hordes of equations and formulas thrown in our faces brought back memories of somewhat more pleasant hours In " the pits " . We soon buckled down and before long, having found magnetic north on the periodic chart, were no longer lost. hHowever it was many months before our classmates In the first regiment were convinced that the phlogiston theory was incorrect and found another explanation for the discipline they instilled in their plebes. After the year was over, we found to our surprise that we had really learned quite a bit. The knowledge which we gained through the Dept. of Chemistry stood us in good stead for our remaining years at the Point and will continue to do so throughout our First Row, Left to Right: MAJ R. D.

LINCOLN When first we became connected with the Social Sciences Department, many of us had prematurely thought that we were finally being introduced into an area in which we could display our vast and undisputed knowledge. But as often happens in our careers as cadets, we were awakened to our erroneous assump- tions by a quick glance at certain notices in the sally ports. The majority of us began to apply ourselves with such fervor that at the end we could consider ourselves experts in the field of foreign and inter- national relations, concepts of economics, politics and general history. Well prepared to meet the most detailed questioning of the topics we had studied, we were quite dismayed by the manner in which the department simplified the final exams, " Why? " Front Row: CPT J.

HAYS Our first introduction to the Department of Military Psychology and Leadership came at the beginning of second semester of our yearling year. No matter what our approach to yearling English had been, we viewed psychology as a course to separate the better guessers in our class. Regardless of this, some of us rose to higher levels of human understanding either through ESP or a little studying behind our classmate ' s backs. The day we put on cow brass we were con- fronted with MOI in June encampment. With our hastily prepared outlines and Cal. 50 machine guns, we trudged down Flirtation Walk to try our talents on our classmates. When it was over one instructor remarked that he, " hated to see the future leaders of our country acting like cadets. " During our first class year we learned, in class, that good leaders are made not born. We gained a respect for the responsibilities we were to assume at graduation and realized that leadership would not be an 8 to 4 occupation. The talents and understand- ing we gained with MP L will serve us well in our careers as officers. Front Row; LTC H. C. Walter;. LTC R. T. Zargan, LTC P. J. Hlckey, COL S. H. Hays, LTC T. A.

Many a cold day saw our boys out practicing on sheer ice, or similar conditions! The Ski Patrol finished another year of exemplary service. Our patrolmen are considered as some of the finest in the East. If you are unfortunate enough to become a statistic, be thankful it ' s at West Point! The Ski instructors did a great job of making the Patrol ' s work light. Their children ' s classes were a model for all Professional Ski Schools to marvel at. Even our recreational skiers enjoyed a great season, jammed with ski movies, instructions, and three fabulous trips up north. Our June Week picnic was a fitting touch to an unforgettable year! CADET BOWLING CLUB This year, the bowling club had two leagues, with First and Third Regiments forming one, and Second and Fourth forming the other. Attendance and interest were at a peak during most of the Spring Season. The top average bowlers in both leagues comprised the bowling team which competed In the Individual Match Game Championships In New York City, and in matches against various surrounding teams. Averages ranged from 110 to 190, including the beginner to the adva nced stages of bowling. The leagues provided an escape for the plebes and enjoyment for all. SKEET AND TRAP CLUB The Skeet and Trap Club develops that keenness of eye and quickness of reflexes that could one day save your life In combat. This enjoyable sport is the closest thing to hunting there is. It provides an oppor- tunity for the person who likes guns and hunting or the person who just likes a challenge to get out of the " old gray wall " and let loose a little bit. Out at Camp Buckner, with the birds flying and the shotguns resounding. It ' s easy to work out the frustrations of the regulated academic life. The Club Is open to anyone who likes to shoot, and we have some members who can give anyone in the Corps a challenge. TRIATHLON The crack of a pistol, the splash of a racing dive, and the crunch of the cinders; these are the sounds that dominate the afternoons of the hardy men of the Triathlon Club. One of the last groups in this age of specialization Is that of the dying Individual, the multi-sport athlete. Each man in the club must be able to compete in the gruelling 2I 2 mile run, the exhausting two hundred yard swim, and the nerve- racking twenty shot string of the pistol shoot all in the same afternoon, hlowever, the benefits are proportional to the work Involved. Some of these benefits include long trips to Fort Sam Houston and competition against the United States Modern Pentathlon Team. The Triathlon Club Is a demanding club for exacting Individuals. Third Classmen generally find time to participate in many more extracur- ricular activities than they did their first year, and, with greater trip au- thorizations, more motivation. The sport clubs that follow, although not limited to upperclassmen, represent some of the many new outside inter- ests discovered during the second year. 152 153 WATER POLO CLUB The Water Polo Club had another fine season this year. Led by President Joe Guignon, First Class- man Ken Cunnmings, and Second Classman Barry Kerr, the team continued to be a leading team in the East. The annual Eastern Invitational Tournament, which draws teams from as far away as the Air Force Academy, was held for the third consecutive year at West Point. This year ' s trophy is named in honor of the late Lt. Col. Rodney Smith, a former Officer-in- Charge of the Water Polo Club, who was killed in Vietnam in the spring of 1967. The team is hopeful of continuing its success of years past in this tourna- ment and throughout the remainder of the season. SPORT PARACHUTE CLUB The exotic mixture of adventure and the heady feeling of unaided flight that is experienced in a daring free fall for thousands of feet is what draws cadets to the sport parachute club. Although many cadets are attracted to this thrilling and exciting sport, only a select few are able to pass the initial physical fitness te ;t and endure the grueling two month training period that is required before they can make their first jump. The exacting standards set by the club pay great dividends though, as is evidenced by the fact that the sport parachute team is the National Col ' egiate Champion. This champion- ship skill of the members of the club is constantly being honed to a fine edge by competition at West Point and Fort Bragg, and other military installations on Armed Forces Day. Although the sport parachute club demands a lot from its members, it has a great deal to offer in return. HANDBALL CLUB Aside from the fact that we almost did not get to play handball at all except during matches with other clubs, we managed to send one team to the nationals. Trips were great: the dinner-dances spon- sored by the D.A.C. and the N.Y.A.C. were really something. " Even " the officer handball club had a good time. We closed out an enjoyable year with yet another party — here on campus. Guess you can ' t win them all. CADET RIDING CLUB This year ' s Riding Club under the direction of Col. J. L. Morrison and Major G. B. Rogers has progressed far in becoming an important extracurricular Activity. This past spring the club participated in the annual G M hHorse Show in Monroe, New York and at- tended the National hHorse Show held at Madison Square Garden. The team had the honor of competing against Vassar, Skldmore, and Bennett In a joint Horse Show held at Vas ;ar. The interest of the members had made the club a very worthwhile activity which is always open to all Cadets and their guests. 154 155 156 CADET BAND The Cadet Band was very active this year in supporting the Army team and the Corps. Football season gave the Band the opportunity to moke numerous appearances. Whether playing in the mess hall or at rallies or for the 150 lb. games, the Band made a favorable impression in contributing to the Corps ' spirit. The fall trip was taken to Navy for the 150 lb. game. Soon afterwards come the Goat- Engineer Game with the Band making its traditional appear- ance. With winter came Basketball season and the sounds of " William Tell, " " The Saints, " and other favorites which supported the Rabble at home games and selected away games. Gloom period set in but the Band continued to liven up the mess hall with concerts. In the spring the baseball team and supporters heard some familiar sounds between innings. To further support the team a trip was taken in May to Brown and Harvard. The entire year was o great success for " Alexander ' s Ragtime Bond. " SAILING CLUB Just about any spring afternoon will fincJ the Army sailing team out in the middle of the murky Hudson fighting the river for possession of their boats. The funny thing about it is that they love it. To an Army sailor the coming of the warm weather means fiber- glassing and varnishing, sanding and drilling, painting and puttering — until that wonderful day after Spring Leave when the ice finally stops coming down the river. Then it ' s time again to feel the water slap- slapping the bottom of the hull and the wind pulling on the sheets. It has been a good four years for the ' 68 sailors, up to and including the defeat of the Mids at their own game. And the June Week Picnics on Connie are something else again. Maybe someday it will pay off in an America ' s Cup skipper. We doubt it, but it still was fun. VOLLEYBALL CLUB Working under the guidance of Major Leroy Hayden of ES GS, the Volleyball Club entered its fifth season with five returnees from last year ' s start- ing six. Javorski, Swinney, Carl, FIrehock and Stevenson along with underclassmen May, Kabalaki, Gandy and Stobbs contributed most to the club ' s success. The team, regarded as a class " B " team, entered many volleyball " A " tournaments this year; and although they did not win any of these tournaments, their play improved tremendously. The Eastern Collegiate Volleyball Tournament held at West Point in April was captured by the " Black " team and the " Gold " team placed fourth. SCOUTMASTER ' S COUNCIL The lure of West Point in the Autumn brought some fifty Explorer scouts on each of five weekends to our rock-bound hiighland Home. These escorting assignments kicked off another season of service for our Cadet Scouters. Our most recurring assignment was assistance to our own troops 23 and 123, through leadership training, Post and Corps Paper drives, and participa- tion In all troop functions. Our annual trip to National Scout Headquarters was the final step In preparation for the Annual West Point Invitational Campcree. This cadet-run affair saw over 2500 scouts and leaders occupy Lake Frederick this spring. All enjoyed an active weekend — especially the cadets! For undying devotion and service to Scouting, look to our Scoutmaster ' s Council. 157 MOUNTAINEERING CLUB The Mountaineering Club was again able to provide many hours of rock climbing to members of all four classes. The sheer heights were a lure that brought out many members of the Classes of 70 and 71 along with the experienced veteran climbers. Club activities were conducted nearly every week- end at either Blackcap Mountain or In the Schawna- gunk Mountains near New Paltz. In the Spring a very efficient rescue team was trained and headed by the experienced members of the Club. Activities in the winter months Included classes In the gymnasium, presentations by Club members and the showing of the classic mountaineering motion picture " Anna- purna. " Leadership was provided by Major Charles John- son, OIC; SGM Brosseau, Ass ' t QIC; and the Club officers: Alan Catron, Anthony Dodson, Dennis Mac- Vlttle, Craig Carson, Tony Mathews and Edward Kersey. RUGBY CLUB Beginning in February with workouts In the Field House and later with sloshing and splashing in the mud at the River Courts, the Army Rugby Football Club tuned Itself for Its opening game against the Royal Military Academy In Sandhurst, England. Coached by the British Exchange Officer, Major John DeCordova, the Army Ruggers spent many hours " rucking " and " heeling " In rain, In sunshine, and even In the midst of the D.C. riots. But the Army team went forth undaunted to turn in another fine season. SCUBA CLUB West Point ' s answer to that mythical call of the sea Is the Scuba Club. The mystery and adventure of underwater exploration are the benefits to which Its members are drawn. They don ' t see much of the sea, except perhaps for a yearly trip to Florida, but they know the bottom of Bull Poncd and Lake Popolopen like the backs of their hands. Even in the dead of winter, this hardy band of conditioned athletes can be found far beneath the ice of the local waters. The entrance requirements are stringent, but the rewards of this unusual club are well worth all the effort. OUTDOOR SPORTSMAN ' S CLUB The Outdoor Sportsman ' s Club served as a parent organization for four active clubs: the hHuntlng, Fishing, Woodsman ' s, and Archery clubs. The Hunting Club administered the cadet on-post hunting pro- gram this past season and took a bird-hunting trip to Ft. Banning, Georgia. The Fishing Club took a trip to Quabbin Reservoir In Massachussetts, and the Woodsman ' s Club participated in the Intercollegiate to Ouabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts, and the Archery Club conducted Informal practice sessions for the bow-hunting season. Each of the four clubs provided equipment for cadets Interested in these outdoor activities and also provided these cadets with an opportunity to meet officers and other cadets with similar interests. 158 -1 Ji 159 One of the joys of being a Yearling is sampling for the first time the many op- portunities and privileges that are tra- ditionally denied to first year cadets at West Point. These range from the more extensive activities and facilities for en- tertaining young ladies, such as better hops and, of course, ' ' Flirty ' to the simple pleasure of walking through one ' s living and dining area in a re- laxed, normal manner. 160 Six o ' clock ! !6I Among the privileges most eagerly ac- cepted by the Yearlings of ' 68, as by all classes when their turn comes, is that uniquely upperclass pleasure, week- end leave. All West Pointers recognize their good fortune at having extensive cultural and entertainment opportuni- ties as near at hand as we do. To the cadet, ' ' The City " becomes a second hometown. 162 163 164 Weekend leaves, football games, hops in the gym, P.R s, and term papers, Christmas and spring leave came and went . . . another year passed . . . we were halfway through.

Biggest Capture Yet 165 ' 4- COW YEAR ■ ' 167 sfat i At the beginning of Second Class sum- mer we made final preparations to as- sume our first real responsibility within the Corps. During the June Encamp- ment seven days of vital training are crammed into 3V2 weeks. We concen- trated on troop level leadership skills: drilling soldiers, leading calisthenics, and teaching classes. With great pa- tience did we sit, for the tenth time, through a classmate ' s discourse upon the relative merits and demerits of the M2 Heavy Barrel Machine Cun, and with serenity allowed ourselves to be thrown about like rag dolls for others who were practicing the teaching of various pugilistic skills. 168 The ' ' June Intrenchment ' as cadets are irreverently prone to refer to it, also brings the opportunity to learn more of our sister services. Until that summer, ' ' Navy ' ' to most of us meant just a strange group of chaps in dark suits who wave their white hats at us across a football field once a year. We found out much more, however, on the Navy ' s fine Army Appreciation Cruise, which many of us spent bending over the rail in traditional landlubber fash- ion. 170 r The U.S. Air Force pro- vided an impressive demonstration of the latest word in flying ma- chines. 171 PISTOL CLUB The Pistol Club returned from the National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, with the national title and after that, there was no stopping them. Outstanding individual per- formances and solid team effort led to another undefeated year. Considering themselves more sportsmen than brawny athletes, the Club always managed to mix voyages with their victories. Following the able leadership of President Jim Stanley and under the ever-watchful eye of Coach Ross, the Pistol Club remains one of the few extracurricular activities to have achieved national prominence. JUDO CLUB The Judo Club this year has carried on in the tradition of the last two years. The Club is one of the most successful activities at the Academy, having gone unbeaten for the last three years In dual and tri-meet competition with top varsity and club teams. With three Eastern Collegiate Champions returning this year, the Club has managed to maintain its unbeaten record, despite extreme curtailment of workout time and injuries to key team members. Under instructor and coach Tom Cress, Officer-In-Charge Major James SIgler, and President Bud Burrell, the Club team has developed into the strongest collegiate Judo Team In the East, and one of the best in the country. It is a sport of direct military value, and develops to a high degree the qualities of patience, emotional control, endurance, strength, and coordination. The outlook for next year is excellent with the addition of a strong group of upcoming plebes from this year ' s team and the return of all but two of this year ' s competitors. With Its past record and tremendous potential, it is hoped that the Club in the near future may become a Corps Squad. 172 ' ' ulil «■ linder " jS Major silent will ices from tliii year ' s Mtential, KARATE CLUB Late every winter the South Boxing Room becomes the domain of less conventional gladiators. For hours on end members of the Karate Club, like Casey of Mudvllle, rend the air with the force of their mighty blows, before curious onlookers attracted by the customary shrieks and yells. The Karate Club, one of the newer competitive activities on the West Point scene, got off to the best start in Its brief history. The regular spring season was preceded by a highly successful television demonstration at the halftime of an Army basketball game. Interest in karate has soared within the Corps of Cadets in recent years, and this year saw the largest turnout yet at the beginning of the season. In their opening meet, the Army board- smashers defeated both opposing teams in the first of what promised to be many victories. Led by President Doug Wheless, Vice-President Fred Johnson, and under the invaluable sponsorship of Captain Wade Mallard, the 1968 Karate Team prornised to be the strongest yet as it pursued its goal of providing karate training for interested cadets and representing West Point in competition. 9 ©r f i m i v- f- ' 173 At length the Class of ' 68 divided itself for the summer ' s business. While some returned to civilian life for a month, others turned to the task of preparing the customary reception for the new Plebes. The Beast Detail turned out to involve far more effort and responsibil- ity than we could ever have imagined two summers previously. We nurtured and cared for our charges with a careful concern that was, of course, totally unappreciated by the objects of our attention. 174 9 i While half the class educated New Cadets, the rest journeyed to Army posts all across the country. Our one-month tours as " Third Lieu- tenants ' ' gave us an opportunity to find out what the " real Army " is like, and to test and sharpen our leadership skills by working with live, honest-to-goodness soldiers. Almost without exception we found it a tremendously rewarding experience, and it gave us the strength we needed to go back and face another year. 175 The change that occurs when a Third Classman becomes a Second Classman is harder to identify than perhaps any other year, but a change there is. As new Cows we could feel that we were looked upon differently — that more was expected of us. As we were relied upon, so do we rely upon our right- hand men in the administration of the Corps: The Class of 7969. 176 Front Row: Schierholz.

SECOND CLASS ACADEMICS brought us face to face with the black arts that we had already come to regard with awe, having known them in previ- ous years to be somehow connected with mysterious late night goings-on behind closed doors in the barracks. efied ' mi " 10 cli In juice class we wrestled with strange symbols and quantities while, in dark- ened lecture halls, instructors gave us amazing demonstrations of black magic. Equally obscure were the rites of Thermo, Fluids, and Solids. Even the Social Sciences Department was able to change the simple business of moneychanging into a surreal world of graphs, curves, and marginal what- have-you analyses. 197 ELECTRICITY COL. E. C. CUTLER, JR. From the very start we knew we had tangled with a unique course. Our instructors infornned us of the department ' s ground rules and off we skipped to un- cover the mysteries of flowing electrons. We were all like one big happy family, " the Colonel " , the instructors, those that understood, and those that didn ' t. We all gathered several times a week In the mornings to play a funny little game called, " You bet your commission " with the goats doing the lion ' s share of the gambling. All of us will recall Saturday morning lectures and the " juice patrol " of officers making sure that we didn ' t miss any of the lecture. With the fear of being graded removed, our labs were fun and interesting. We connected the green cord to the red and the gray to the blue with the greatest of ease. Many future instructors were developed in our class and in most every case a little more than just electricity was learned and remembered by all. d First Row: MAJ M. L Moore, LTC H. G. Graham, LTC S.

Conoclast and, Rosey Cheeks, to the immortal Sally Darcy, we learned the basic concepts of constitutional, criminal, and military law. Classes were relaxed, interesting and highly argumentive, especially in the mock trials held at the end of the year. Law taught us how to think and how to apply our knowledge to the problems which confront us daily, and which will continue to confront us in our future military careers. i i I |««r«WW :yBnB»Mt «BCU ««»st J»««« • ■• C • • It • »• ••t i First Row: MAJ Gustave F.

HEIBERG The mechanics department attempted to teach us the difference between sheer knowledge and just plain shear, however, the results were questionable. Although the department employed numerous teaching methods and techniques, some of us never could " apply basic principles " to solve a " relatively straight forward ' free body diagram. Carnot, hook, diesel, and rankine drew tlieir cycles while most of us drew a blank. But somehow something managed to infiltrate Into our heads for by the first semester of firsty year, we realized just hew much we had learned In our mechanics courses and how well these fragments of knowledge had been implanted. We are sure that the techniques acquired in problem solving as well as the general knowledge we acquired will help us throughout our careers. First Row: MAJ R. S. Seaward, LTC J. D. Daigh, COL E. R.

It was formed as a corps of fifers and drummer attached to several Minute Man companies stationed on Constitution Island before the Revolutionary War. From these beginnings the oldest band in the Army, led by the only saber-bearing sergeant major in the Army, has served West Point and the Military Academy with pride and distinction. The services of the band are many and varied; from sounding reveille and the other calls of the military day, to full concerts at Trophy Point, hlow- ever, their most important function is to provide the show and music for all parades. A service they perform with the excellence of the professionals they are, the parades exhibit the fine accomplishment of the band. ! 204 Surprisingly enough, one of the least popular Second Class academic subjects is reflected in several extracur- ricular activities. These are featured here, along with the religious activities and some others. RADIO CLUB Under the new cadet management and with $2,000 from the CAO for new equip- ment, the Radio Club was able to Increase its power output to the maximum legal strength. However, East Barracks had to sprout a new crop of iron monsters as the Club improved its antenna system; and the lights dimmed even more perceptively every time it went on the air. This year the Club again sponsored the cheapest (free) message handling service In the Corps. Cadets were able to talk directly to friends and relatives across the nation. With Its new equipment It was able to qualify for several awards from the Ameri- can Radio Relay League for contacting amateurs In every state and on every con- tinent. It was also one of the top scorers In the east New York area in the fall sweep- stakes for 24-hour operation. With Its new influx of freshman operators and newly qualified upperclassmen, it hopes to be able to save the Corps even more next year. KDET RADIO The KDET broadcasting staff worked especially hard this year to provide the sports coverage and music the Corps desired. From football to Army-Navy sports weekends, KDET was on the sports scene. Aside from radio shows, KDET spread out to provide music in class clubs, bring In artists from the entertainment world, and provide record hops. At West Point, you are In the Big " K " Country. 206 AUDIO CLUB The Audio Club, under the guidance of Majors D. K. Blackham and T. E. Olson, began the year with an informative trip to a stereo high fidelity show in New York City. This nnarked the initia- tion of prospective members into the major functions of the club, that of supplying and purchasing the best stereo equipment for the Corps and assisting cadets in building and re- pairing stereo equipment. This club was well known for its low purchasing prices and its unique club room set-up of the latest electronic equipment for analyzing faulty stereo sets. The Department of Electricity gladly lent its assist- ance at all times. ROCKET SOCIETY Under President Bill McAdams ' leadership and the helpful guidance of our Officer-in-Charge, Major Kenneth Lager of the Ordnance Depart- ment, the Rocket Society enjoyed a memorable year. From projects to lectures and a little prac- tical experience, the club increased its knowledge of America ' s rocketry. Our trips to Cape Ken- nedy to view NASA and to Huntsville to visit the Army ' s program further enlightened us to the complexities of the space age. 207 DEBATE COUNCIL AND FORUM Two hundred and fifty students, representing over 100 colleges, met at West Point on 6-9 December to participate In the 19th Annual Student Conference on United States Affairs (SCUSA). Discussion groups were organized geographically, and discussed problems of inter national relations that have occurred since the launching of Sputnik I in 1957. The areas included: South Asia, East and Southeast Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, USSR-East Europe, the North Atlantic Area, the Middle East and North Africa, and the United Nations. The latter table was a new group which discussed the United Nations and Arms Control. Each group thoroughly studied the history, evolution, and current problems and alternatives of United States policy toward their respective area. Each round table was assisted by a chairman who directed the discussion as well as an advisor who was particularly acquainted with the area. No attempt was made to reach specific conclusions but, on the final day of the Conference, the group prepared a report on Its discussions. This year, SCUSA opened with a Keynote Address by the Hon. Paul t . Nitze, formerly Secretary of the Navy, and presently serving in the position of Deputy Secretary of Defense. Following his address, the conferees spent the next two days at their round tables, concluding with a banquet held in the Cadet Mess on 8 December. The banquet address was pre- sented by Dr. Joseph E. Johnson, President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Since Its inception in 1949, SCUSA has doubled in size and has become one of the most highly regarded student conferences in the nation. BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE CLUB The Behavioral Science Club Is established for the purpose of providing opportunities for cadets to pursue their Interests In the study of psychological and social aspects of military life. The Behavioral Science Club Is oriented toward the general support of the mission of the Military Academy through furthering the professional development of Its mem- bers. The club is divided Into four subgroups (Military, Science, Sociological, and General) so as to provide specific topics of interest to each group through projects, lectures, seminars, and association with out- side groups. The club started off its first year with a very excellent and beneficial lecture by Col. Kolmer on " The Alcoholic Soldier. " Other articles included were lectures or films on Military Unit Stress, Hypnosis, Sleep and Dreams, Insanity, Freudian Studies, Prisoner of War Techniques, and Psychological Warfare. Trips were taken to Walter Reed Hospital, National Institute of Health, Naval Medical Research Center, a New York Narcotics Hospital, Special Warfare Center, and a Deaf and Blind School. The club offers challenges and opportunities for those cadets interested in the psychology of military establishments. 208 MILITARY AFFAIRS CLUB With a lot of behind the scenes effort, the members of the Military Affairs Club have presented a number of programs of military Interest this year. Colonel Simpson was chief panelist in a discussion of the role of Special Forces In Viet Nam. Another panel con- sidered the role of airmobility in Viet Nam. Later, a guest-speaker from Lockheed Aircraft gave a very interesting lecture on the C-5 a heavy lift aircraft. Along with special committee discussions on more narrow subjects and the club ' s participation In the spring ROTC visit, a trip to the Pentagon Is planned Growing in size and scope, the club has tried to provide an outlet for the feelings of the Corps ' gung- ho few and the rest of us with an interest in the profession of arms. CARDINAL NEWMAN FORUM The Cardinal Newman Forum has been quite active this past year In a number of activities, with much emphasis on topics concerning the Faith and the Church in the past as well as in the present day. To accomplish these discussions we have used films and guest lecturers. The Newman Forum also took several retreats to nearby monasteries to help bring about a better understanding of the Church. There was also time for fun during the past year. There were picnics with nearby girls ' colleges Invited, as well as panel discussions with the girls. The Cardinal Newman Forum has had an Interesting and eventful year and has provided cadets the opportunity to learn more about God. 209 Ct4 PROTESTANT DISCUSSION GROUP The Protestant Discussion Group met weekly in the Chaplain ' s Office in Grant Hall. The group Is broken down into three smaller divisions of first classmen, second and third classmen, and fourth class- men. They are led by Chaplains Ford, Wilson, and Easterling respectively. The group sponsored a retreat for sixty cadets In December. A study of the Church ' s role in society was led by the Rev. Fay Hill, a na- tionally known Protestant minister. The major activity of this group is Its weekly study and discussion of biblical and theological literature as it relates to our society today. It is also an outlet to discuss cadets ' problems and experiences In every- day life. CADET CHAPEL CHOIR The Cadet Chapel Choir, under the able direction of Mr. John A. Davis, and capable supervision of Major Robert G. Moscatelll, Is responsible for provid- ing music for the worship services at the Cadet Chapel. In addition, It Is also responsible for repre- senting West Point at public appearances throughout the East. Certainly none of the Choir members will forget the services In which the Choir participated in Washington, D.C., Passaic, N.J. and at St. Thomas ' Cathedral in New York City. These trips and the experiences gained in our weekly participation In services at the Cadet Chapel have made this past year an enjoyable one for the Choir. 210 JEWISH CHAPEL CHOIR The Jewish Chapel Choir, composed of approxi- mately twenfy Jewish cadets, sings the hymns and responses at weekly services conducted in the Old Cadet Chapel. In addition, the choir has performed for numerous civilian audiences, singing traditional American and Hebrew songs. Although limited time and membership have placed severe restrictions on the choir ' s ambitions, this small group has eminently served to aid Jewish cadets who have sought to demonstrate an abiding interest in their musical heritage. CATHOLIC CHOIR During the past year the Catholic Chapel Choir participated In many activities. Besides singing Mass every Sunday, the choir participated In several extra- curricular trips Including visits to Mercy College, Fordham and St. Patrick ' s In New York City. The goals and ambitions of the choir were dealt a serious blow due to the transfer of Monsignor Moore, long- time pastor and spiritual advisor to the choir; however, the choir carried on under the combined leadership of Fathers McCormick and O ' Brien. 211 JEWISH CHAPEL SUNDAY SCHOOL The Jewish Chapel Sunday School is an activity supported by the Jewish Chapel Squad. Each Sunday morning of the Acadennic Year, the Sunday School teachers, consisting of cadets of all four classes, have given instruction to the children of the Jewish per- sonnel stationed at West Point. The Sunday School is the only Jewish educational institution in the im- mediate vicinity of West Point, therefore the Sunday School teachers perform an invaluable service for West Point ' s Jewish community. r T WEST POINT SUNDAY SCHOOL Each Sunday 600 children of Post personnel attend Protestant Sunday School taught by t50 instructors. Both the teachers and the children profit by these spiritual classes. Ken Knitt is assisted in his job as General Superintendent by Chaplain Wilson, Major Snyder, and Major Anderson. A picnic at Camp Buckner, Parent ' s Day, Christmas Pageant, and trips to various civilian Sunday Schools highlighted a very rewarding year. 212 activity itli Sunday i4y Sctool iMi, av8 «»isli per. iay Wool I tlie iffl. 8 Siiiiday efice for GLEE CLUB Despite the efforts of the Tactical Department to suppress the art of singing by cadets, they have gathered in song as far back as 1870. Who can dispute the legend that the Glee Club had its origin at Benny Haven ' s famed tavern? Since that time, the Club has continued to live up to its traditional motto of " No fun v ithout music, no music without fun. " The 1967-68 edition of the Cadet Glee Club is definitely no exception. Under the new directorship of Major fHal Gibson, the Club enjoyed a wide variety of performances ranging from " sedate " concerts be- fore the President of the United States to its annual beer bust with the New York Athletic Club. Although the rehearsals were sometimes long and the schedule demanding, no member will dispute the fact that the Glee Club is the best way to lift the " grey fog. " In the dead of winter comes an important milestone for the Second Class: 500th Night, celebrated to com- memorate the remaining time until graduation. In the darkened halls of the Bear Mountain Inn, to the music of the Night Ryders (the rock and roll version of the Hellcats,) and in civilian clothes, we enjoyed the clos- est approach cadets ever make to the high school and party life we had left behind us. A very important part of Cow Year is that long-awaited boon from the lofty corridors of power, privileges. No one who has never been a cadet can fully appreciate our preoccupation with such simple pleasures as watching T.V. on Friday night. To the Second Class falls the responsibility for the an- nual cultural exchange with our sister academies. We returned with memories of boat rides on the Severn River and an extravagant glass and aluminum world in the Rockies. The Middies and Zoomies proved to be excellent hosts, and a jolly time was had by all. 214 215 When winter comes to West Point, the wind howls down the river straight from the North Pole and the Plain takes on all the aspects of the Russian steppes during her fabled winter — one almost expects to see Napoleon ' s freezing army struggling through the swirling snows. Cow Year was the Year of the Long Winter, the last significant snow appearing on April 24th. 217 Different individuals feel it at different times, but eventually it strikes every cadet: the sudden realization that his time at West Point does not extend in- definitely into the future; that there is an end in sight somewhere near the horizon. For many of us, as an example, it came along around the time of 500th Night: Not only were we celebrating the number of days, but the class we could remember, as though yesterday, riding off to Bear Mountain had gradu- ated and gone. It is a subtle feeling, but it sticks and grows, and as the end of Second Class Year approaches, it waxes strong. 218 SbeiNieitrJl0rkSlmej9; VOL.CXVl.No.39$47 NEW YORK, THURSDA Y, JUNE t, 1967 10 CENTS ISRAELIS ROUT THE ARABS, APPROACH SUEZ, BREAK BLOCKADE, OCCUPY OLD JERUSALEM; AGREE TO UN.

As guests of the Air Force, we departed on the first leg of our grand tour of the United States. We were showered with flattering (and unac- customed) attention as each branch at- tempted to make a better impression than the one before. The first stop was Fort Knox, the appropriate home of the Cavalry Cold. There, in the first of sev- eral firepower demonstrations, we were shown the sobering array of power at the Army ' s command. 225 At Fort Sill, we took turns on their giant shooting gallery. The Artillery also in- troduced us to new thresholds of finer food and drink as we learned to appre- ciate buffalo meat and found that ' ' muzzleblaster ' ' could mean more than just noisy ordnance. At Fort Bliss we were shown the latest In duck hunting equip- ment, and we took the opportu- nity to further our nation ' s Good Neighbor Policy as we enjoyed the broadening experience of travel to foreign lands. 227 At Fort Benning, the Queen of Battle sought to allay our natural suspicions by plying us with air conditioned barracks, connplete with bar. The Leadership School subjected us to a modernized version of the Twelve Labors of Hercules. The training at Fort Benning was both challenging and enjoyable. t )af. I|)e ' es. h 229 Future Engineers were able to tinker to their hearts ' content with the erector sets at Fort Belvoir. There was even a complimentary train ride through the Army ' s version of Disneyland. ' . t : | ' fe ' i 230 M « « « »« » — ' " " " j rr; " " Fort Monmouth did much to diminish the distaste we had accrued over the past year for things electrical. As we had expected, General Rienzi proved to be as good at throwing parties as he was at rally-speaking. 231 i The nights were no less busy than the days. Each posts stock of strong drink was conscientiously evaluated by the visiting cadets. At lavish balls, the Class of ' 68 stepped boldly forth to meet the local daughters. Many of us made per- manent friendships, while others be- came instantly wealthy. 232 Returning from the First Class Trip, we divided once again for the summer ' s business. Some too responsible posi- tions on the New Cadet Detail, filling such vital roles as that of the Man In The Red Sash. Others took charge of the care and feeding of the Third Class by serving on the Camp Buckner De- tail. Those who had not yet done so took advantage of the Army ' s student second lieutenant program. We all managed to find time for a month of leave. 233 SUPERINTENDENT ' S STAFF cov Front Row: Rev. J. D. Ford, Ch USMA. COL H. M. Brown Jr.. Alumni Secy, COL R. S. Crandall, Engr, COL C. R.

Although reduced to an elite, the company had a good tac. This was the first year he was not mentioned in the Christmas skit. In academics, the yearlings realized they could go " D " all day, the cows discovered that law is a sure cure for insomnia, and the firsties found that the hike to Ordnance in winter closely resembles the retreat from Moscow. For those of us that are leaving, it ' ll be the friends we ' ll miss — that ' s really what Is left after four years.

But the challenge of escape and evasion soon wore off and many sought new diversions. Quite a few went off to corps squad, seven to the ballet, and almost all to the D-list. hlowever, with the largest marrying contingent in the corps, 50%, the sides were even in the battle of the bachelors.

Ki-f 246 Reorganization Week, 1964, brought 39 of us together and we quickly united ourselves and fojiowed that old maxim of " cooperate and graduate. " We had our hives, we had our goats, and we always had those who represented that mediocre middle, but we were a closely knit group. Reorgy, 1964, to Reorgy, 1967, saw us lose a few of our original builders, some to greener pastures and others who helped the Corps expand for security ' s sake, but their memories will always remain with us. Firsty year came and with it our rings and within 24 hours of the Ring Presentation we had a cracked ring, but nothing could get us down. Some liked Brigade Staff, some closed files, all liked cars. Some liked Snuffy ' s, some liked Benet Hall, but all were broke. We leave now, some as bachelors, some with permanent roommates, some undecided but all with memories. Echo was good to us.

G-1 REGIMENTAL BANKERS TROPHY FALL DRILL STREAMER SOCCER CHAMPS CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPS 249 Being recently conceived by the TD, the firstles here in H-l only spent one year together. But we did have our share of daily diversions . . . breaking in a new Tac, personality conflicts, and marching right-step at parades. We were a motley crew but really the best of the 2nd battalion. Our spirit started-off with a bang and we adopted the name, hIAWG-ONE. The men of hawg-one were composed of star-collared hippies on one end and fortunate Infantry files on the other. We will always remember those war stories and Sunday nite tales told by those wily weekend warriors and that great fight with the academic depart- ment on the part of our even greater " engineer " . Yes, It was a long hard grind but we made it through with that good hiawg spirit and determination. The O. D. Army should be glad to have us. Our future is, as yet, unknown but our last days as cadets will always linger in our memories. CO.

But the " White Tornado " didn ' t live up to his reputation, and things settled down to the bliss that is firsty year. There were those who cared, and then there were those who cared not quite so much. There were many who didn ' t drink, forcing a few to do yeoman like work to make up for it, and study time was evenly divided between social etiquette at Snuffy ' s, current events at the movies, and physics at the Lee Hall pool tables. Somehow we made it through the themes, the re- search papers, the EDP ' s and the BDP ' s — all cynical devices used by the academic departments to steal our precious study time. And through it all we grew a little — matured a little, always able to find the light side of things and make life almost bearable. CO.

Instead, it exemplifies what could best be called a well rounded, highly motivated company. Winner of the Superintendent ' s Award In 1967, they continued their winning way by securing the Drill Streamer early In the fall parade season. Although they won no regimental athletic championships this year, they were always In comp etition until the end. They were well represented on the corps squad level, having lettermen in nearly all of the major sports. During the past four years, E-2 has contributed much to the Regiment and to the Corps. p7 .

We had all survived the transition from the old to the new corps and we had only hazy memories of squad drill and six-count belts. Many of our ranks took upon themselves the joys and pains of a wife. There were the old married men: Bakes, Pedro, and Art. There were the newer ones: Steve, Rick, Bill, Rick, George, By, and Jerry. And lastly there were the holdouts who gave In only at the end: Billy-Mac and Warren. And then there were the bachelors: John and Ray, who were still fighting off females. Yogi still dug cars more than girls. Butch liked his fishing. Although he was our only football hero no girl had yet tackled John. Charlie, Ed, Dave, Mike, and the Masher still liked the wide open spaces. And so we all went our ways, on to bigger and better things.

Though we stumbled at times, we always stumbled forward. We saw the last of the two-regiment Corps and com- memorated it in changing the H-2 banner to B-4. From the herd, to the bags, we saw the demise of Jefferson Road, squad drill and peace in Southeast Asia. We devoted four years to making ourselves officers and gentlemen, lovers and not, pro or " D " , strong or weak according to our personal inclinations. Throughout it all, though, looking back now as the square of the distance we are from North Area increases In time, those were good times. CO.

Outstanding sports teams were just as typical of Charlie-4 as the 98% who were always " excused from life " and C-4 led in academics as well. But when privileges finally came the " students " decided it was time to play, and a number of the fellows almost never missed the movies. We kept our sense of humor through thick and thin, and when we look back we realize we owe much to old West Point. v - H. 4 1 f ! np. ' i •L ,«i U MUL. l ,. ! .

Showing typical E-4 competitive spirit, which in the past was reserved to after taps water fights, the com- pany under " Big Red Al " , won the fall drill streamer and posted Its best intramural record ever. Jack showed that he knew skills other than driving and walking the area by leading " A.P. ' s marauders " to a tie for the regimental football championship. Gloom period was brightened with branch choices, car loans, and frequent visits to Snuffy ' s. Graduation on 5 June ended the " Year of the Comeback " for E-4 and began more exciting adventures for 22 new second lieutenants. How can we ever forget E-4? How can anyone ever forget E-4?

T. Garbage Trucks, some like furry little males, but these are some of the things we all like. We like Pittsburg — minus nine stripes, plus six months worth. We like our first sergeants, even more, they like to stay in their rooms, one, two, three months at a time. We like our country — so much so that we have more people in regional map coloring than anyone else. And we like sugar — so much so that we found we had to borrow a few extra sugar bowls last fall. We really couldn ' t use all the bowls, but we didn ' t have much use for all the bags then either. To put it bluntly, what this company ' s got is a lot of color. ■ ■■F- I lalr« M iUm All " 1 » •» " .- I.

CO. G-4 279 Once upon a time, so the story goes, there were twenty- three connpanies In the Corps, and one fraternity. And so it was that In the fall of 1964 we became the last class of pledges to enter Kappa Dos, the Fraternity. In the remoteness of the Lost Fifties we were able to gain some shelter from the long arm of the system. There we found a land of water fights that turned the stairs into cataracts. As upperclassmen we discovered the joys of an out-front parking lot and a back door entrance to the Weapons Room. In keeping with our reputation, we threw bigger and better class parties, highlighted by special en- terprises at Navy time. And as proof that good works come of good spirits, we found time to win two Supe ' s Awards and three Banker ' s Trophies. The years passed quickly, and new company names have come and gone. But the spirit of Kappa Dos lives on In H-4. To those that follow us, we commend a proud tradition. CO.

In Total Recall 401 -2 we wrestled with the principles of war and marvelled at the exploits of the Great Captains. Future engineers had their confidence shaken by the C.E. course, which taught us the intricacies of building with steel, wood, concrete, soil, and scotch tape, and introduced a new expression to our vocabulary: EDP. Firsty academics featured another delightful experience denied the un- derclasses: Mole Day. J FVKfTvjr 283 MILITARY ART AND ENGINEERING COL. C. H. SCHILLING Remember how Military Art kept your date wondering if there really were any famous military painters? The Department of Military Art and Engineering made many of us wonder too! One side of the hall taught us to build bridges of steel, concrete, and timber while the other side extolled the importance of burning your bridges behind you. hiistory of the Military Art gave all our aspiring combat leaders a chance to study those they hope to emulate and even gave the Quartermasters their chance to shine! We ' re all hoping it ' s easier to accomplish a penetration than to define one. Thank goodness, only one P.R.! Civil Engineering gave us a deeper appreciation of the structures around us. (Hey, remember that blonde in front of Grant Hall!) Some guys even noticed the 12 WF 36 in the hole by the hijstesses ' office. C.E. took us on our only field trips as cadets, out to Ft. Montgomery, Buckner, and oh yes, we even watched the foundation of the new barracks settle. We ' ll all recall the Dept. of MA E when ' er we see a suspension bridge or visit a civil war monument.

BILLINGSLEY The Ordnance Department told us that their course would encompass all of the scientific knowledge that we had massed this far at West Point — and right they were. But an in-depth course of notebook manage- ment would have undoubtedly helped us more than all the academic background we possessed. The first principle learned was adopted from Michie Stadium type strategy — if you can ' t find it in the book, punt. We discussed everything from gas turbines to rocket engines, but all we wanted to know was how fast our new ' Vette would go and how much gas it would use. And of course there was that analog computer . . . we finally wound up the year with the heavily weighted WSDS applying all our skills to a practical design situation. Although we sometimes wondered if we ' d make it, we finished this course possessing an assort- ment of knowledge that we are sure to apply through- out our careers. Firrf Row: MAJ K. E.

' nuedto 5 h ii] CONSTRUCTION Two days before graduation, in June of 1965, ground was broken in the first phase of our proposed ten year construction pro- gram. The purpose of this building program is to provide the necessary facilities for the Corps of Cadets as it increases from ap- proximately 2500 to its new authorized strength of 4417. Full authorized strength wil be realized by I July, 1971. 289 The Military Gothic style and granite facing adhere as closely as possible to the existing facade and will be compatible with the sur- rounding buildings. The Washington Hall-Barracks complex is the first phase of the construction program. 290 ■ki 291 Never walked the area or sat confinement The Good . . i . . . and the 10% ... The Bad . . .

Only those who have played the game themselves can appreciate the long hours, yes, hours, of concentration that go into a high caliber chess match. Chess, derived from early Babylonian war games, offers new problems in every game. This different situation in every game is one of the unique aspects of the game that attracts many people. We hope that any cadet with a taste for tactics will come by and look us up In the Chess Room of Building 720. FIRST CLASS COMMITTEE Primarily responsible for the reform and publication of the Fourth Class System, the First Class Committee mainly rested after a hectic Second Class Year. With the enforcement of the System in the hands of the First Captain, the committee contented itself with formation of the Automobile Committee, choosing the Class chapel window, and choosing the graduation announcements and programs. With the aid of Its OIC, COL Love, the committee provided the nonmllitary leadership for the class. CADET HONOR COMMITTEE Under the leadership of our chairman, hHal Wllhlte, we of the Honors Com- mittee came to know the full meaning of the phrase " the honor code belongs to the Corps of Cadets. " 293 DIALECTIC SOCIETY PRESENTATIONS Al SH 294 295 INFORMATION DETAIL The Information Detail was fortunate in having Lt. Col. Fisher as its OiC. Colonel Fisher was able to impart valuable knowledge to members of the detail. The detail assisted the Information Office during the year and learned a great deal about the problems of Army Information. That ' s not much information, but if there are any P.I.O. men in the underclass they can join next year and find out about it. DIALECTIC SOCIETY Work for this successful season began last summer when negotiations for contracts were being formulated for the 1967-1968 program. Plans materialized and in early September, " Jay and the Americans " made a big hit here at the Military Academy. Homecoming was next and there were rumors of Frank Sinatra as a slight change from Sammy Davis Jr. from last year. Rumors were true until Mr. Sinatra ' s film shooting appeared to be in conflict with the performance date, hlowever, the weekend was saved by the magnificent performance of " The Toys. " Then, on Thanksgiving weekend, the largest audience ever to see a show at West Point heard the sounds of the " Beach Boys, " the " Soul Survivors, " the " Buffalo Spring- field, " and the comical " Pickle Brothers. " After Christmas, the Dialectic Society brought shows here on 500th Night weekend and on Washington ' s Birthday. Al Hirt justified his acclaim on the traditional Cow Weekend, and the fabulous " Shirelles " entertained us on Washington ' s holiday. Finally, this successful year ended with the very talented DIonne Warwick perform- ing here on March 30. It can only be said that the officers in the Dialectic Society, as members of the Class of 1968, did an outstanding job In providing this year ' s entertainment for the Corps. . t " Jlt: p 1 il l 1 V ■: V) ■ ■Tirt- U M CADET PUBLIC RELATIONS COUNCIL The Cadet Public Relations Council Is or- ganized to Increase the knowledge of the United States Military Academy among the general public. During the year, the Council arranged over 250 speaking engagements covering all areas of the United States. Much support was given to the Christmas Leave, Spring Leave, and Boys State programs in an effort to accomplish the mission of the Coun- cil. These appearances were an effort to stimulate a desire among young men to enter the Military Academy. 296 POINTER Perhaps the best thing of all about the " Pointer " was the great times the staff had putting it out. From month to month It was always different and challenging — especially that last day or so before the deadline when the Managing Editor became painfully aware of the fact that ten pages of the magazine were missing, and everyone of the staff had gone on long weekend. Then there were always the side benefits — the stewardesses during beast, those trips to the Daily News, taking the " pic-of-the-month " and, finally, the graduation sabre for the firsty editors. The " big three " this year. Chuck Petruska, John Caiabro and Tom Kurkjian: Business Manager, Editor-In-Chlef and Man- aging Editor respectively, only hope that the Corps enjoyed reading the magazine as much as they enjoyed putting it out. 297 A milestone long awaited by every class is the presentation of the class rings. The ring is the standard badge of the First Classman and, later, of the Academy graduate. The highlight of Ring Weekend was the banquet and hop, for which Washington Hall was transformed into a land of enchanting beauty. Ring Weekend has a special significance for those cadets and their ladies for whom June will mean wed- dings as well as graduation. 298 299 Hop Coi tfooten, 1 Cadet He a pleas3« ' enJi dii the kopi ' Valentine. ipodiorM theCfest was a ' 6 ' CommiHe I believe that I have experienced one of the most wonderful weekends of a lifetime — not only as the fiancee of a cadet, but as a girl who, over the past four years, has helped so many cadets choose rings and miniatures for this big social event of the year. Each Ring hfop Weekend previous to ours, I was at the Point for a miniature display and each year I watched all the " other " girls in their excitement over the festivities. And then it happened! All of a sudden I was one of the " other " girls. The Ring Hop took on a completely different meaning for me. I wasn ' t standing on the sideline anymore — watching all the girls go by with their beautiful gowns and flowers — I was right in with them! The lovely cocktail party before the hop, " walking " under the ring arch, the music and dancing — it was every bit of a dream weekend. But where did the time go? The hop we had waited so long for — is it really time to leave? Do you remember pausing at the door for one long last look at a room that held so much laughter and happiness for all of us? I do — and now, with the passing of this marvelous weekend, it brings us a little bit closer to being — " the force behind the man. " U-r 300 HOP COMMITTEE Beginning with the Ring Hop in September and ending In a blaze of glory with the Graduation htop In June, the Hop Connmittee, under the guidance of Cadets Ohie and Wooten, with the willing cooperation and assistance of the Cadet Hostess Office and CAO, provided the Corps with a pleasant variety of Informal and formal hops on the week- ends during the academic year. Special highlights included the hops Navy weekend at the Ben Franklin, the Christmas, Valentine, and Spring Formals, the introduction of club- sponsored hops, and the expansion of facilities to Include the Crest Room as a location for weekend hops. All In all, it was a very busy but very productive year for the Hop Committee. 1968 RING AND CREST COMMITTEE Since 1835 the WEST POINT RING has been the symbol of the Military Academy and the pride of the graduating class. The 1968 RING AND CREST COMMITTEE under the leadership of its Chairman, Bill Ericson, developed the Class crest and produced the Class ring. The Committee was formed shortly after Beast Barracks and as such was the first committee to represent the Class of 1968. Consequently, the Committee performed a variety of functions. The 1968 MUSTER, a register of the Class, was conceived and pub- lished by the Committee. In addition the Committee planned and executed graduation banquets. Ring Hops and organized the election of the Class Officers. 301 ENGAGED COUPLES HANK BETTY RAY LIZ HAROLD DONNA JOE TRISH JiL ' h 0| i l « la 1 1 2 TOM CONNIE BRUCE SUE MIKE DONNA alASKii BILL ANGIE 302 ENGAGED COUPLES STEPHEN JOYCE BOB JUDY GEORGE GLORIA STOTT BOBBIE n mr 1 ' Kmy HORST MICHELLE MARK DOTTIE JON JANIS LOU APRIL 303 r 304 GEORGE KATHY GEORGE NADINE CHUCK JOAN GEORGE PAT MAX MARVENA BILL CLARE ENGAGED COUPLES GREG MARCY PAUL LINDA 1 r Si 1 ' " 4 B M V ■ ' ■ " s , jtL wIPh.

The HOWIT- ZER Staff joined together to help make that symbol an accurate and artistic representation of cadet life. in our story and our photography we have sought to capture both the serious side of cadet life with emphasis on our development as soldiers, as well as the humorous aspects of the cadet environment with its variety of traditions and customs passed down from generation to generation. The 1968 HOWITZER is arranged in chronological order beginning with Beast Barracks and progressing through cadet life to graduation. This arrangement, along with other new concepts, was produced through countless man-hours of work.

Despite the sidelining of veteran Steve Lindell and Jim O ' Toole, yearling quarter- back Roger LeDoux completed 10 out of 23 passes. The first tally came in the first quarter with a scoring run from the 6-yard line by Carl Woessner. After Virginia scored its only touchdown Van Evans raclced up 41 yards on a punt return. A pass from LeDoux to Gary Steele put the half time score 14 to 6 for Army. The second half was triggered by a 30-yard field goal by Nick Kurilko. and an intercepted Cavalier pass to set up the final touchdown by Hank Toczy- lowski. The final score came with a 42-yard field goal by Kurilko which finalized the 26-7 Shipley in Command T.D. No. 3 TRACK: ARMY VS. LEMOYNE AND FAIRLEIGH DICKINSON Army Cross Country opened its 1967 season with a spectacular victory over LeMoyne and Falrleigh Dickinson University. The Cadets captured seven of the top ten places leading to a comfortable victory. The Army Harriers were in control from the starting gun. After one lap around Howze Field the contestants were bunched around Greg Camp, Bob McDonald, and Bruce Helmich. At the finish line it was Greg Camp first, followed by Helmich. Jim Kee, Jon Nolan, Barney King, Jim Lucas, and Mark Spelman. n 316 fiHI m Bh K . . IH ■iy. -.tt M. .. .. • •4i . . ■ ' ifli " " Tiu BifjjIk Mi H| li H S K pfl 1 1 |i ikijM J SOCCER: ARMY VS.

The sopho- more, Matt Fleumer, played havoc with the King ' s Point defense scoring six goals, set- ting an Academy record. Goalie Bill Thorne had an easy game with three saves from the five shots gotten off by the outmanned Mariners, while Army got forty off. Besides Fleumer, Jim Anderson, Jim Nielson, Steve Allaire, Al Vitters, and Harrison Lobdell were on the end of scoring shots. The Army Team Slipstreams Wait a Minute 317 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. BOSTON COLLEGE Going Into the second ganne of the season with Roger LeDoux at quarterback, Arnny dom- inated Boston College with a 21-10 defeat. Jim Bevans was the top defensive player. The director of the defensive platoon intercepted two passes, blocked a punt for a safety, and had 12 unassisted tackles. Charlie Jarvis racked up 126 yards in 17 carries including a 65 yard run to setup Army ' s final touch down. Terry Young, caught six passes, bringing his career total to 67 — an Academy record. Nick Kuriiko averaged 39 yards a punt and kicked field goals from the 21 and 32 yard lines with one extra point. The two men in the scoring department besides Kuriiko were Terry Young on a 56 yard pass from LeDoux and Jim Greenlee with a ten yard carry.

Bruce Helmich topped Army with a third place finish while Nick Sebastian moved into a solid fifth. A bit of the old and a bit of the new closed out the scoring with Greg Camp and Jim Lucas coming in eighth and tenth. Jim Kee followed with the number 12 slot to put Army out in front and unbeaten. SOCCER: ARMY VS. YALE Coach Palone ' s booters settled a score with Yale with the final one being Army — 6, Yale — I. Another Palone scored twice in the first period. Yale narrowed the gap with a single goal in the half. The cadets bounced back with one score in the third quarter and a three goal uprising in the final stanza. Luis Retana scored In the third quarter, and Dutch Harmeling, Steve Allaire, and Matt Fleumer all chipped In with goals to roll up the score. hn Leads the Way , ' One Is as Good as Tv 319 The Head Hunter 320 OCT. 1, 1967 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. DUKE The Duke game proved to be the most frustrating football game played by an Army team In many seasons. The Knights saw their unblemished record ruined by Duke University with a 10-7 loss. Army scored twice but only one counted, for a penalty nullified the second. The Army score came In the second quarter. The Cadets took the kickoff and a pass from Steve Lindell to Terry Young set the wheels in motion. Army then got IS yards on a Duke penalty which set up an Ideal situation. Fullback Charlie Jarvis busted over from right tackle from the five for a touch down. Nick Kurliko kicked the extra point giving Army Its final score. SOCCER: ARMY VS. COLGATE Colgate became the third straight victim- for Army In a solid 7-1 decision. Six players figured in netting goals with Matt Fleumer showing the way with 2. Again the booters showed balance In the all-Impor- tant scoring department. Along with Fleumer, Bob Behncke scored on a direct kick in the first quarter. The second quarter was almost a replay of the first with Army dominat- ing with precision passing. Jim Anderson and Bob McCloy scored one each. The second half Army kept the pressure on. Bill Friese and Steve Allaire closed out the scoring with one goal each. CROSS COUNTRY: ARMY VS. MANHATTAN AND ST. JOHNS The unbeaten status of Army was threatened by a triangular meet with Manhattan and St. Johns. The Cadets easily defeated Manhattan 22-39 but had a hard fight to beat St. Johns with a 28-29 margin. Depth paid off in winning dividends, with Nick Sebastian and Jim Kee finishing In the top places with Greg Camp, Dave Hill, and Bob McDonald right at their heels. Coach Palone Little Rabble at Work 150-POUND FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. PRINCETON The little Rabble broke from the starting gate in convincing fashion and displayed both offensive and defensive strength by defeating Princeton 42-8. Offensively the Cadets scored six touchdowns, three in the second quarter, and rolled up a net of 518 yards passing and rushing. De- fensively they were just as sharp with Joe McDermott coming up with 2 key Interceptions. With Harry Hayes doing most of the carrying, Ken Bevis threw an II- yard strike to Tom Beierschmitt after one had been nullified. Both Hayes and Nick Stafford scored before the end of the first half. The final scoring came In the fourth quarter when Hayes burst over tackle for a touchdown and a 32 yard pass from Gary Contrell to Jim Lovelace. 321 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. SMU For their third victory of the season, Army soundly whipped Southern Methodist University, defending South- west Conference channpions, in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. It was truly a team effort as the defense, keyed by interceptions by Hanl ToczylowsH, Pete Dencker, Ken Johnson and Jim Bevans, allowed the Mustangs into Army territory only three times In the entire game. The offense was sparked by Steve Lindell and Charlie Jarvls, the former scoring the first touchdown and the latter the last two. Nick Kurllko connected with a 46 yard field goal, the longest In Academy history, to round out the scoring and assure Army ' s 24-6 victory. The Texas press picked Steve Lindell on offense and Hank Toczylowskr as the defensive standout. SOCCER: ARMY VS. PENN STATE Expecting a tough game from previously unbeaten Penn State, Army was somewhat surprised by their 7-0 romp for their fifth victory. Superb ball control and hustle were the key factors which enabled Army to build a 4-0 lead after three periods. The victory was assured in the first period by goals from Mike Palone and Matt Fleumer. Two more goals by Jim Anderson and Steve Allaire put the game on ice and for the ' final fifteen minutes when Coach Joe Palone played all yearlings. They managed to add three more goals with John Becker, Charlie Morris and Joe Henn doing the honors. CROSS COUNTRY: ARMY VS. SYRACUSE Army ' s Harriers achieved a rare cross country feat by blanking Syracuse University for the Cadets ' first shutout in three seasons. They swept the first ten places to give V est Point a 15-50 victory. Greg Camp, Bob McDonald and Nick Sebastian finished in a dead heat for first place with a time of 25:33 for the five mile course. Ten seconds later Jon Nolan crossed the line followed In another five seconds by Jim Lucas. Rounding out the top ten were Barney King, Dave Hill, Jim Kee, Mark Spelman and Fred White. This was really an Impressive victory as the Cadets ex- tended their record to 8-0. 322 150-POUND FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. RUTGERS Scoring in every quarter, Army ' s 150-pound football team rolled to a convincing victory over an outclassed Rutgers eleven. Led by quarterback Ken Bevis, the offense was superb. The first time they had the ball, the lightweights put together a 54 yard scoring drive that was climaxed by Bevis carrying the ball over from the one yard line. The final play of the first quarter saw Bevis hitting Harry Hayes with a 36 yard strike that was followed by Walt MIschler scoring from one yard out. The defensive highlight of the game occurred minutes later when linebacker Brian Wells snagged an errant Rutger ' s pass early in the second quarter and danced 42 yards to put Army on the scoreboard once more. The scoring was ended by a 16 yard Bevis to Hastings aerial, and scoring runs by Harry Hayes and Tony Singer. Nielson to Behncke Army in Control 324 OCTOBER 21, 1967 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. RUTGERS A sell-out crowd sat to watch the Army run Its season ' s nnark to 4-1 with a 14-3 decision over Rutgers. After the opening Iclckoff to Rutgers an interception by Diet Lueclte put Arnny In possession of the ball. It took Army five plays to score. The team of Carl Woessner. Charlie Jarvls. and quarterback Roger LeDoux put the ba kicked the extra point. In the second quarter O ' Toole came Young for nine and on the seventh play sent Jarvls over for his second T.D with Kurllko again converting with Jarvi his 1967 rying. Nick Kurllko iebut.

All good things must come to an end. The Violets captured the first three placed, insuring a 26-31 decision. Even with Nick Sebastian, Bob McDonald, Greg Gamp, and Dave Hill finishing 4 through 7 respectively, the Army saw Its unbeaten record lost. SOCCER: ARMY VS. HARTWICK It was a battle of unbeatens in the soccer clash at Hartwlck but the Warriors gave Army a 1-4 defeat. Steve Allaire scored Army ' s only goal with an assist from Jim Nielson, early In the second quarter. This tied the score. The game broke wide open when Hartwlck scored three goals In three minutes giving Army a blemish on Its unbeaten record. 325 OCTOBER 28, 1967 326 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. STANFORD Before a capacity Homecoming Game crowd, Army and Stanford put on one of the most thrilling games ever seen at West Point. The Cadets had to come from behind twice to win, 24 to 20, in the fin al minutes. Army, playing without the services of Hank Toczylowsiti, Jim McCall, and Pete Dencker, took advantage of breaks to rack up its fifth victory. Stanford got off quickly scoring a 27-yard field goal and a two yard touchdown the first two times they got the ball. Army stalled again but Bill Jackson recovered a Stanford fumble of a Nick Kuriiko punt on the 24. After five plays, Steve Lindell took the ball in and Nick Kuriiko kicked the extra point. Stanford came right back but Jim Bevans, Tom Wheelock, and Ken Johnson held to take over on the I -yard line. Late in the second quarter, a Jim Sevan ' s interception set up a 3 1 -yard field goal tie the score 10-10 at half-time. Army came out strong after half-time and John Peduto and Carl Woessner punched it over from the 6. Shomaker added a field goal to make it 17-13 at the end of the third quarter. Stanford go t the ball back and drove 92 yards to go ahead 20-17. Army stalled and Coach Cahill ordered a punt with only 6:45 left to play. Army got the ball back and after a fantastic 36-yard punt return by Van Evans, made it 24-20 on a five yard run by Hank Andrzejczak. After an exchange of fumbles. Army came up on top 24-20. SOCCER: ARMY VS. BROWN Army lost its second straight soccer game with a 2-0 loss to a strong Brown club. While the Cadets were stymied by the Brown defense, the Rhode Island club managed to put across goals in the second and third quarters. Army goalie Bill Thome was injured in the first half and had to be replaced by Fred DiBella. Both played well enough to win under most circumstances. 150-POUND FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. COLUMBIA Coach Eric Tipton ' s fine lightweights mauled a hapless Columbia ream for an easy victory. Scoring almost at will ihe Little Rabble ran up a 62-2 advantage before the final whistle sounded. Army handled the ball seven times the first half, and scored each of these times. There was little doubt as to the outcome as Army left the field at half-time, leading by a lopsided 49-2 bulge. In the second half the quarters were reduced to ten minutes duration because of Army ' s insurmountable lead. Coach Tipton, in an attempt to hold down the score, had his offense playing defense and the defense playing offense. Even this did not hold down Army ' s powerful lightweights as they scored two of the four times they handled the ball in the second half. 327 Every weekend the cold, reserved Mili- tary Academy becomes a girl watcher ' s paradise. Cadets don ' t get out much, so the ladies, bless them, come to us. From near and far they journey, here to brighten our grey world as only a pretty smile and musical voice can do. We wish we could print a picture of every one of them, but since we can ' t, we feature here their representatives: The 1968 Homecoming Court, voted first choice by the Corps of Cadets. To every young lady who ever stood in the cold outside Crant Hall, ate a Weapons Room hamburger or comforted a lone- ly Plebe, this section is gratefully dedi- cated.

This enemy Force in the Air was located in the center of the area known as Falkondom, which they used as a base from which to swoop down and ravage the peaceful surrounding areas. The Black Knight, Sir Tho mas Cahill, decided to punish these barbarians, even though he knew he would be facing superior numbers far away in a hostile land. He realized, however, that in addition to his eleven regular division assault force, he had a distinct advantage due to the support of his fifth column, the Twelfth Division. 1st Year of War: The campaign began with a sustained drive to the 29th Parallel by Generals Jarvis, Lindell, and Woessner, whose divisions pounded away at the enemy positions continually. But at the 29th the enemy counter- attacked, sending our forces back to the 41st where the Black Knight held against repeated attacks. At this point, attrition set in and lasted until a Black Knight division Infiltrated and led a revolt in the rear of the enemy lines. This opportunity was immediately ex- ploited by our forces which completed a linkup by passing through the enemy forces, (sketch a) With the Falcon army thus thrown off balance, Gen- eral Kurilko ' s high-stepping Ukrainians made a dashing raid upon the enemy capltol which met with complete success in the field and thereby achieved its goal. 2nd Year of War (not shown): There was a continual seesaw war of attrition fought during this period with no significant gain being made by either of the bellig- erents. However, the Black Knight was laying the ground work for his projected campaign. 3rd Year of War: The 3rd year started slowly, but another uprising deep in Falcon-held territory sparked the Black Knight ' s forces to greater efforts and enabled them to spring the offensive so long planned by our forces. It was General Moore who succeeded In effect- ing a deep penetration of the enemy ' s lines to spark a smoldering revolt, which was completed by Llndell ' s linkup, (sketch b) Now with the Falcon army off balance and falling back, General Lindell led his elite guard in a sweeping envelopment around the right flank of the enemy. This critical action completely disrupted the enemy and en- abled General Jarvis, at the head of his gallant and Irrestitable, foot troops, to make the decisive blow by rupturing the entire left flank of the Falcon army. The enemy capltol was captured, and It appeared that their army had been destroyed. They asked for a truce, so we agreed to pull back and allow them to care for their dead and wounded. So ended the 3rd year. 338 KURILKO ' S RAID SITUATION FIRST YEAR I I I I I 10— LaO-J-SO YDS SCALE OF PARALLELS 10 ' — 30- 50 YDS SCALE OF PARALLELS 339 ! MAP 2: THE FALCON WAR 4th Year of War: The negotiations fell down, but not until the Falcon Army had been refitted and the last reserves were called up to fill the depleted ranks, hlow- ever, they had certain advantages in that the Black Knights ' forces were fighting far fronn home in a moun- tainous area made all the more difficult by its extremely cold winters. Our troops were not at all accustomed to this climate or altitude. And to make matters worse, inhabitants of those enemy areas being occupied by the Black Knight sensed the weakening condition of his forces and they became rebellious. Several enemy gen- erals were sent behind our lines to coordinate the re- bellions — particularly notorious among these were gen- erals Moorhead, Ewig, and Longnecker. The Falcon Army initiated the campaign by completing a linkup with general Longnecker ' s guerrillas on the 41st parallel, (sketch a) The infamous General Turner led his division of bandits deeper into our territory, but an intended linkup with Moorhead ' s guerrillas was incomplete, whereupon Moorhead and his force were annihilated by the Black Knight ' s reserve divisions. However, a simultaneous uprising controlled by Gen- eral Ewig completed a linkup with Baer ' s division. Follow- ing these initial phases, widespread rebellion broke out in the rear areas of our army, causing numerous detach- ments to be made from the main force. During one of these clashes General Ewig and his forces were de- stroyed when the intended linkup became incomplete. Turner ' s division continued to drive on against our weakened front until he finally completed his drive to join the guerrillas near our base. General Mumme then slipped through our forces during the melee to destroy our base. At this point the Black Knight ' s forces were in extreme danger but the improving counter-guerrilla situation, and the enemy ' s deteriorating logistical situation allowed the Black Knight to regroup and expel the barbarians. Now seeing that the enemy was tiring of the war we realized that time was on our side so the Black Knight decided upon a policy of containment where minimal forces were employed on the front lines, while the re- mainder of the army was placed in the rear areas to control the population and contain penetrations by the Falcon Army. Once again it was a seesaw war of attrition except the enemy was desperate this time. While there were several uprisings, all of them failed which may be chiefly credited to General Johnson, and General Bevans (the Swamp Ox), (sketch b) Finally, our phalanx, under the command of the de- termined General Neswiacheny, pushed the main body of the enemy back. General Jarvis finished the job and the Falcon government realized that time had run out, whereupon they capitulated.

Army spotted Cornell first place, but came into claim tfie next seven spots of the finishers. Mark Spelman set the pace for the Cadets, nine seconds behind the winner, posting his best performance of the season. Jim Lucas placed right behind Spellman and was in turn followed by Nicic Sebastian, Jon Nolan, and Jim Kee. SOCCER: ARMY VS. AIR FORCE Even on an Air Force field that had been covered by seven inches of snow, Coach Joe Palone ' s team slipped and skidded to a decisive S-l victory. Bill Friese led the point parade with two goals. With the score tied at I apiece in the first stanza, halfback Bob Behncke put the Cadets in front to stay (with his net)? Mike Palone in the third canto hiked the lead to 4-1 as the Army attack group continually carried the game into Falcon territory. The fifth goal came with little time remaining In the third quarter when Luis Retana, on a pass from John Becker, booted It into the Falcon ' s net. NOV. 11, 1967 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. UTAH Army shut out Utah 22-0 In the final home game of the 1967 season. The score, however, does not give the true picture of the game. Utah ran 22 more plays from scrimmage but only netted three more yards. They threw 30 passes to 26 for Army, and they made 6 more first downs. The difference In the score came from the tough One on One Army defense. In the first quarter the Utes got down to the Army 24 where Bud Neswiacheny took charge to halt a fourth and four attempt. A pair of sorties to the Army 38 and 23 fol- lowed by a charge to the 15 were also stopped. The Army offense scored first In the second period, set up by a 15-yard punt return by Van Evans. Lindell found end Gary Steele clear on the 10 who went in for 6. Kurillto kicked the point after. In the third quarter Army was stifled by fumbles. Wiih the Corps yelling " The fourth quarter ' s ours, " Lin- dell took but six plays to go 80 yards. A 27- yard pass to end Terry Young and a 38-yard draw play by Charlie Jarvls were the big gainers. Jim Bevans set up a score with a midfield interception. After four plays, Evans took a 20-yard pass In for the score. Jim Greenlee hit right tackle for two points. The press boys tabbed Llr dell the top back. Young the top lineman, and linebacker Ken Johnson (with 15 tackles and five assists) the top de- fender. SOCCER: ARMY VS. SETON HALL The boot- ers hiked their season record to a lofty 3-2 height after shutouts over Seton Hall (10-0) and Rutgers (9-0], The Seton Hall game was no contest. Army got off 91 shots to only five by the Pirates, who had 41 attempts go over the goal. In addition to three points tallied by Bill Frlese. key scores were registered by Bob Behncke, and Steve Allaire. Rutgers, which bowed to tournament bound LIU by a mere 1-0 score, couldn ' t stop the Army scoring ma- chine. Frlese again paved the way, this time getting help from Mile Palone, and Matt Fleumer. Both chipped In with two goals. Who Forgot the Right Guard? 344 CROSS COUNTRY: HEPTAGONALS The Har- riers, with fhree Icey men out of ten with injur- ies, finished 7th in the Heptaqonal Champion- ship. Harvard won by a margin of 10 points over defending champion Navy, followed by Yale. Brown. Pennsylvania, Army. Columbia, Dartmouth, and Cornell. Niclt Sebastian fell early in the race and had to battle for 28th place, while Jim Kee came up with an arch bruise, and Jim Nolan with a stitch. The first man for Army over the finish line was Greg Camp who placed 13th with a time of 25:56. The rest of the pack included Jim Lucas 23rd, Sebastian 28th. Mark Spelman 32nd, Kee 35th, Nolan and Bruce Helmich finished in the 39th and 50th spots, but out of the point total. 150-POUND FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. COR- NELL In a display of their characteristic ex- plosiveness. Army ' s 150-pound football team wasted little time in disposing of determined but outmanned Cornell. The offense in its quick strike for the first score took advantage of a pass Interception by Ron Herbert and set up on the Cornell 45-yard line. Ken Bevis then launched a 32- yard strike to Chuck Hastings and Army was on the move. Jim Lovelace capped the drive with a five yard scoring jaunt. Later in the first quarter the Cadets took ad vantage of a Cornell punt to launch another scoring thrust. Bevis began with a 24-yard ramble to move the ball across midfield. Nick Stafford then fielded a 23-yard Bevis toss to keep the drive alive. Three plays later Gary Peckham punched over from two yards out. Bevis ran a two point conversion. Cornell scored in the third quarter to avert a shutout, but aside from that they were able to cross midfield on only one other occasion. All told, Army ' s rock-hard defense forced Cornell to punt ten times during the game. Steve Get; Protection 345 NOV. 18, 1967 FOOTBALL: ARMY VS. PIH For the first time In the history of the ser ' es Army defeated an inspired Pitt team in Pitt Stadium. The action took place before a crowd of 22,310, which included General William C. Westmoreland. An interception of a Steve Lindell pass set Pitt up for an early score. A one-yard pass from Bazylalc to Longo and it was 6-0, Pitt. Af er talcing the Itickoff Carl Woessner, Terry Young, and Steve Lin- dell engineered an offense that covered sixty-five yards in eight plays with Charlie Jarvis going in for the score and Nick Kurilko adding the extra point. As the game progressed the Panthers kept driving and hit paydirt once more, making the score 12-7, Pitt. But key defensive plays by Ken Johnson, Jim Bevans, and OIlie Johnson helped stall them. Fumble recoveries by Bud Neswiacheny and Jim Bevans, and interceptions by Dennis Hutchinson and Tom Haller stopped an aggressive Pitt offense. Then Lindell hit Lynn Moore in the end-zone for six pts. and Charlie Jarvis for two more, making it 15-12, Army. In the final minutes of play, Moore, Lindell, and Jim Greenlee mounted a forty-nine yard drive which ended with Lindell going over standing up. The result! Army— 21, Pitt— 12. 346 Little Rabble on Defe SOCCER: ARMY VS. WEST CHESTER STATE Army booters warmed up for their NCAA tournament appearance with a well earned 4-2 victory over West Chester State. The Cadets came from behind in the third quarter to breait a scoring deadlock. West Chester scored first, but Army bounced back with tallies by Steve Allaire and Matt Fleumer. The Rams came back to tie at the half. Bob Behncke broke the ice late in the third quarter with an assist by Mike Palone. An insurance goal by Luis Retana closed the final quarter making it 4-2, Army. In Need of Haircut!! 347 NOV. 25, 1967 SOCCER: ARMY VS. NAVY Army soccer traveled to Crabtown this year for their annual show-down, and the ensuing battle brought pride to the hearts of every Army sports fan there. The underdog Black Knights stormed Navy in every quarter; two goals by Matt Fleumer, one by Bob Behncke, and a shutout performance by goalie Fred Di- bella in the second half threw the game into double overtime before the mids squeaked one in. CROSS COUNTRY: ARMY VS. NAVY Cross-country ' s iourney to Midville proved equally frustrating, as Coach Crowell ' s injury plagued squad was unable to overcome the inspired Navy harriers. Consolation was gained from the performances turned in by several underclassmen, who will seek to turn the tide next year In the friendlier hills of Vv ' est Point and vicinity.

With Navy winriing the 68th classic between the two academies, Army is still in front in the series with 32 wins. The Army could not move the ball into Navy territory in the first half, but in the final period Van Evans returned a kick 33 yards where Jim O ' Toole engineered the fireworks. Straight ground power put the ball over the goal line with Lynn Moore going the final two yards. The conversion failed, but when Army returned to Navy terri- tory it was a forty-yard pass from O ' Toole to Gary Steele for another touchdown. This time the conversion was good. After rolling up 14 points Army kicked off to Navy who ran three plays and punted. Then Army fumbled and could not gain control of the ball again. At the end of the season the record shows Jim Bevans matching the pass Interception record (8), Nick Kurliko holding both season field goal records (7 of 21), and Terry Young going with the pass receiving marks with 94 catches. 355 ARMY FOOTBALL TEAM— Front, Row, L. to R.: Ed Larson, Qllie Johnson.

Army lost a heartbreaker to Princeton, but rebounded with three straight wins going into the Volunteer Classic. After losing to Tulsa on a last second shot, the team came back to defeat Illinois for third place. A sweep through the South at Christmas netted victories over Rice and SMU and a third place finish in the Triangle Tournament at Raleigh, North Carolina. The victory over Yale In the Triangle Tournament started the cadet cagers on their way to a 12 game winning streak. The St. John ' s game was a perfect example of the deter- mination that characterizes Army Basketball. Down by 15 points In the first half and by 13 at half time. Army fought back and won, when with 1 :42 showing on the clock Jimmy Oxiey hit a reverse layup for a 55-54 victory. Army was not to be denied as they finished their regular season with two victories, one being a 66-44 victory over Navy behind the 19 points of Bill Schutsky and the 16 points and 16 rebounds of Dick Simmons. The performance of the team throughout the season brought bids for post-season tournaments. The NIT bid was accepted. Bill Schutsky and Mike Noonan had a good year In both scoring and .rebounding.

Under the leadership of Coach Ross and captain Bob Merritt, the team proved to be the only undefeated winter corps squad — being undefeated in nine shoulder-to-shoulder matches. Between its first win over Ohio State and its last over RMC, the team slowed down only to sample its share of Falcon and Goat meat. Outstanding Individual performances were turned in by Bob Merritt, Jim Adamson, Jerry Florance, Jim Stanley, and Phil hfolden. Phil set a new team record of 1441 while defeating Navy. Vic Ross set a new individual record of 296 In the sectionals. Bob Merritt, Jared Florance, Jim Adamson, Jim Stanley, and Phil Holden also did well in the sectionals — well enough to join Vic on the NRA All- American Team.

Coach Ryan termed it a " rebuilding year " ; yet it surpassed 67 ' s per- formance and gained a second place eastern finish behind Yale. Coach Ryan was ever present, with his great strategy putting the team into winning form. There were many out- standing performers. Throughout the entire season, Jay Williams was consistently setting new records in the distance events, and Pete Heesch was rewriting the sprinters ' record book. Barry Kerr was also accomplishing record breaking feats in the Individual Medley and Breaststroke events. Backing up Jay in the distance freestyles were Captain Ken Cummings and sophomore standout Fred Lough, who be- cause of his continual clutch performances was a surprise to the entire team. Bob Wells, Jim Rushfeldt, and Mike Pettit also scored big in the sprints, as did Joe Guignon in the Individual Medley when he teamed with Barry Kerr to make an unbeatable duo. First class breaststroker Jeff Burke, second class butterflyer Kent Gonser, and third class backstroker Jon Noll scored big as a medley relay as well as In their individual events. The team will never forget the clutch diving performances of Don Greene, Pete Hyde, Lew Robertson, and Shelby Stevens In many of the meets. Also helping the team were Bill Prince In the butterfly, Dennis Herqenrether, Jon Dodson, and Steve Madley in the middle freestyle distances, and Phil Krueger in the Individual Med- ley.

Six returning lettermen, all seniors, Barry Conway, team captain Chuck Vehlow, Billy Campbell, Dick Bowers, Chris Ohilnger, and Bill Gardepe, became the backbone and depth of a promising season. Rick Wilber, a junior, returned from the sickness which kept him out last season to add his dependable game to the team. Sophomores George Alcorn and Bill Malkemes came from a winning season as freshmen to fill the remaining slots. Early chal- lenge matches produced quick realization of the talent of the new- comers and the striking potential of the entire team. Sophomore George Alcorn moved quickly to challenge Barry Conway and Chuck Vehlow for the number one slot — a position never tied down by any of the three. Coach Bill Cullen. looking for " a highly successful season, " predicted tough opponents in Harvard, Penn, Yale, Princeton, and Navy. His prediction about nationally-rated Harvard came true in the first match of the season — Army losing 7-2. The team recovered quickly, however, to win the next six matches. Yale ended the winning streak, but, the team, not suffering from last year ' s February slump, went Into the Nationals at MIT with a 13 and 2 record to come out second. Navy couldn ' t contain Army ' s drive after last year ' s 5-4 defeat. In a close finish. Rick Wilber downed his opponent In the fifth game to put Army over In a 5-4 victory. With the defeat of Navy and the success in the Nationals, it was as Cullen said, " quite a year.

After two months of pre-season practice the team had Us first taste of victory with a solid win over the Zoomies in Colorado Springs. With this sweet triumph as a springboard, the Gymnasts went on to put away Pittsburgh and the Merchant Ma- riners before Christmas. After Christmas leave, the team ran into a tough schedule and some troublesome iniuries. Veteran all-around man Rick DiNlcola ' s ankle, Don Warner ' s back, and Drew Allen ' s battle with the Academic Department all meant that the Gymnasts had to work doubly hard to beat Syracuse at West Point before the Navy meet. Versatile Dick Kent, along with Robella, Yasukawa, Kerestes, Adams, Casey and Captain Beckwlth were all dependable scorers for the squad. With just Navy and the EIGL championships left, the team traveled to Annapolis determined not to let the Middle First Class gymnasts graduate with a star for their letters. The meet was a close one; less than two points separated the final scores, but as they have each year since 1961, the Army Team brought home the stars. Barry Robella won both the still rings and the parallel bars events, while Charlie Beckwith on the side horse and Rick DlNicola, all-around, both turned in outstanding performances. A clearly superior trampoline team and a solid high bar squad proved key in clinching the victory. At the EIGL championship meet. Army took several honors. Beck- with placed second on the side horse, and he and Robella, who took third on floor exercise, qualified to travel to Tucson for the NCAA Championships. John Lucas placed fifth on the still rings and Ron Yasukawa, on the high bar, took seventh. Coach Frank Wells can be proud of this year ' s hard-working team.

FENCING After many years of worit by many people, the Fenc- ing Team proved that it indeed was capable of varsity status. The road to Corps Squad status was a rocky one. and the team was determined that it would never again pursue that course. We wero reminded of our proud heritage of such notables as General Patton, George Calan, and many others who were outstanding fencers here and when they left the Academy. Captain Steven Murphy was talented in all three weapons, he was fortunate in being able to turn to three outstanding men and superb fencers as his coaches — Nat Lubell, Robert Dow, and the 1968 Olympic team coach Csaba Elthes. Working together as a team in an individual sport, the 1967-1968 Army team was able to com- pile a record of 11-3 in the regular season, and 8th in the Eastern ' s and finished 10 out of 43 teams at the NCAA Championships. The foil team was fortunate to have David Maddrox as its leader. Mike Romash and Ron Feher combined to lead the Sabre team throughout the season, and with the help of third classman John Kendrick was able to finish 2nd in the Eastern ' s, with Romash and Feher both making the finals. First classman George Laswell headed an epee team that is returning three outstanding men to the 1968- 1969 team.

JIM HARTER Captain WRESTLING The 1967-1968 wrestling team had one of the best records (8-2) any team has had in recent years. The season was highlighted by the first victory over Lehigh in 15 years, also the first time Lehigh was defeated in their own gym. The season opened at New London where Army placed second to Maryland In the Coast Guard Tournament, only losing in the finals after leading the entire two days. The team showed fantastic spirit and got stronger as the season progressed. The dual meet ended on a sour note as Navy won. hlowever, if one individual match would have gone over to Army, we would have defeated the 1967-1968 Eastern Collegiate Champions. Injuries plagued the team for the Easterns. Paul Raglin broke his hand and could not compete. During the season he soundly defeated Navy ' s heavyweight who was to be Eastern Champion. Cap- tain Jim Harter recovered enough from a pinched shoulder muscle to take second. John Dinger placed 3rd at 167, Mike Nardotti placed 4th at 160, and Mark Hoffman placed 4th at 152. This year ' s team was young and showed great promise. Scott Patten, Mike Mullady, Steve Baribeau, Joe Ferraro, Bill McBeth, and Curt Meyer have shown great potential and have gained a lot of experience on the mat. This year ' s team led by 1st classmen Jim Harter, Russ Baker, Hugo Craft, Jim Kelley, and Claude Johnson will not soon be for- gotten. SCOREBOARD WRESTLING 2ncl Coast Guard Tournament Army Oppon.

The first task at hand was filling the five vacancies left by graduation. Returning All-American Dave Taylor was joined by Captain John Williams, sec- ond classmen Jim Cox and Ken Christian, and third classmen Bob Thomson and Chip Leonard to form the nucleus of the 1968 Army Rifle Team. Although suffering three early-season defeats to City College of New York, University of West Virginia (1966 National Champion), and Murray State University (1968 National Champion ), Army rebounded to a strong finish for a 7-3 record. Air Force fell before an Army score of 1397, only 3 points shy of the Academy record. In this match Dave Taylor ' s 288 x 300 broke his own existing Academy record. Navy ' s 1967 National Champions, firing on their own range, were out pointed by Army riflemen for the 5th consecutive year, 1376-1368. Youth and inexperience became seasoned deliberate competitors as Army once again finished as one of the Nation ' s finest.

Paced by All-American weightman Larry Hart, the team breezed through the remaining 8 dual meets undefeated, including a resounding 64-45 victory over Navy at Annapolis. This meet produced an Academy record 600 effort by iunior Bob Foos, who later lowered the standard to 1:10.8. The mile relay, composed of Jack Cochran, Brian Morrill, George Forsythe, and Bob Foos set an Academy and Navy field house mark of 3:15.4. The following week Army displayed one of the finest team efforts in Eastern Intercollegiate track to win the Heptagonal Championships over favored Harvard, 62-53. The Cadets placed 3rd or better in all but one of the championship events, but the two mile relay Insured the team title with an upset victory over Harvard in a record 7:38.5. The team consisted of Pete Billia, Jim Osman, Larry Lemaster, and Greg Camp. Army closed the season with a fine 3rd place finish in the IC4A ' s as Dan Seebart broke Hart ' s month old shot put record with a 56 ' 8 " toss. In a first-ever ap- pearance at the NCAA ' s Hart placed third in the Nation in the 35 weight throw, while Frank McCullogh set an Academy record for the 60 yard high hurdles with a 7.2 clocking.

Although Army was not rated one of the top teams in the East, their presence was well known and respected throughout the league. The high points of the regular season were the two impressive victories over perennial power house, Brown University (3-1) and 1967 National Championship Runner-up, Boston University (5-2). The season ended on March 9 with a hard fought victory over rival RMC in Kingston. Playing on Canadian ice and under Canadian rules the Redmen jumped to a quick 2-0 lead. However, the old Army fight could not be subdued for long and Army scored 4 last period goals to win 4-2. The Junior line of Dave Merhar, Tony Curran, and John Ahlbrecht did the majority of the scoring all year long. Mike Palone, Ed Cutting, Ned Doyle and Dave Young took up the scoring slack as forwards. Lee Carlson, playing his first varsity season in the goal turned in many outstanding performances.

" wf «MS ' ' .ta f ' Sk ' ' LACROSSE This year ' s team started oH the season with high hopes of capturing the national channpionshlp. A strong defensive unit of Brian Utermahlen, Dan Gooding, Buddy Neswiachaney, and goalie- captain Don Workman, all returning lettermen, pose a formidable obstacle to opposing attaclcmen. The mid-field is led by Jack Mayer, John Blevins, and face-off Charlie Lleb, with a supporting cast of lettermen from the class of ' 69 and several promising yearlings. The scoring punch figured to be led by returning lettermen Dan Ryan, Rick Rider, last year ' s leading scorer, and Darby Boyle, with strong performances expected from yearlings Pete Cramblet and Marty Knorr. After posting an opening 10-4 victory over Yale at New Haven, the team returned to West Point to de- feat Rutgers 10-5, as Cramblet scored five times. A strong defensive effort held Princeton ' s star attackman to 2 goals, while Cramblet again hit for 5, Rider 2, and Ryan 2 assists for the third victory in a row. Maryland Lacrosse Club went down 14-5 and tHofstra fol- lowed 12-4, with yearling midfielder Ed Hirsch getting a total of 5 goals, while Cramblet upped his five game total to 19. The winning streak ended the next weekend as a powerful Johns Hopkins t en handed the team a 15-8 loss. In spite of their efforts, the defense could not stop Hopkins ' All-American attackmen and the offense lacked its usual precision. The team, not playing its usual sharp game, dropped the next game to Maryland, 13-8, thus losing any hope for a piece of the national championship. This proved to be the last loss, however, as the team rolled over Syracuse and Vir- ginia, and then outlasted the highly touted Mt. Washington club. The Navy game provided both thrills and disappointments. Our early 5-1 lead melted away under a blistering June sun, and a blistering Navy onslaught. As double overtime came to a close, Cramblet lived up to his All-American billing, creasing the net with the tying goal.

As a yearling, he won the Eastern Intercollegiate Golf Championship and qualified to go to the Nationals. Another tough competitor, playing In the number two position. Is Ralph Tuccillo whose winning ways have led Army to many successful golf seasons. Over the past four years Ralph has compiled a record of 25 wins and only 4 losses. Rusty Casey and Greg Knight, playing In the three and four positions, have also maintained winning records and look to be .the strong points in next year ' s team.

The " Who-der " lids, while never being the Tactical Department ' s favorite, and with five first classmen sharing ten stripes, had a 14-3 record, including the big one over Navy. To most people, the fine season by the racketeers was not a surprise after their performance in the Fall. In the Eastern Intercol- legiates they won the 4-man team title. Senior Billy Campbell and Junior Rick Wilber took the doubles title while Senior Bare-Bare Con- way was runner-up in the singles. When the spring rolled around Coach Bill Cullen molded Sophomore Bill Malkemes, Steve Strom, and Senior Dugout Dick Bowers around his Eastern champs to form a strong squad with the best depth he has probably ever had. He was not disappointed, as strength throughout the lineup characterized Army victories.

BASEBALL The 1968 season has been one of ups and downs for the Army Baseball Team. The team has played consistently well against conference foes, but has been erratic against non-conference op- ponents. There have been several fine individual performances turned in by the Armv team. Leading the list Is Tommy Krieger, the team captain and member of last year ' s All-ECAL team. At third base he leads the team in hitting with a healthy .368 batting average. Handling the catching chores is letterman Rich Scagllone, who continues his fine -defensive woric and this year has added a strong .313 batting average. Right fielder Bart McClellan, also a three year letterman. has added the long ball punch to the lineup with five homeruns. On the mound staff Roger Vandenberg has become the steadiest per- former. Also emerging this season as a star performer has been Doug Rogers, who had seen very little action the past two seasons. He started his first game ogalnst CCNY and proceeded to pitch a shutout, winning 9-0. Against Seton Hall he stretched his string of scoreless Innings to 1 7 before yeilding a run, winning 5- 1 . Two other surprises are Bobby Merkle at shortstop and Pete McCall In centerfleld. Both have turned in scintillating performances at the plate and in the field. George Coan has done a fine job at second base as has Larry Fettis at first. One of the highlights of this baseball season at West Point was the Yankee game. They always create a great deal of excitement and rightly so, because many of the Immortals of maior league baseball have played. Among them are Micky Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, and Casey Stengel. It ' s an honor to get a hit against maior league pitching, and Rich Scaglione is the envy of many fine major league hitters, getting 4 hits in 5 times at bat. This is the 1968 Army Baseball Team. -TX ; Jk . ' A fo.

Connecticut State 3 Navy 3 ■ ' ? ; ' S;: 419 OUTDOOR TRACK Two solid dual meet vicfories (Penn. State and Yale) got the season off to a good start. The unusually warnn weather brought out many personal bests and no less than four meet records fn these meets. Brealinq away from the traditional schedule of dual meets, Army participated in several larger relays. In three successive weekends, the fe m traveled to Randall ' s Island for the lona Relays, to Phila- delphia for the Penn Relays, and to the Quantico Marine Base for the Quantico Relays. Only in the lona Relays was a team champion chosen and Army came home with the trophy. Using Its depth to score eleven places in the field events and seven places on the track. Army amassed 57 points to far outdistance Villanova, defending indoor NCAA champion and former winner of the lona Relays. The next two weekends produced three academy records. Greg Camp, Jim Osman, Pete BlUia, and Larry Lemasfer broke the two mile relay record at the Penn Relays, and Jack Cochran, Tom Rab ' ut, George Forsythe and Sheridan Groves set a new record In the 880 yard relay at Quantico. Greg Camp also brought home individual honors by set- ting an Academy record of 1:50.6 in the 880, also run at Quantico. Next to Navy the biggest rivalry, and often the most competitive, meet of the year is the Heptagonals. This year proved to be no ex- ception with Harvard, Yale and Army all developing into strong contenders for the title. Army, trying for Its third straight title fell one point short, losing to Yale by a score of 71-70. Harvard was third with 67 points. The next closest team scored only 25 points. Despite the rain, the competition was close to the end. With only the mile relay to be run. Army needed a first place to win the title, but a second place behind Yale would tie the score. Yale won the race In record time and typically enough Navy played the role of the spoiler and beat Army by half a stride at the tape for the much needed second place. The squad hit the victory trail once again against Manhattan, and continued their winning ways with a surprisingly easy victory against Harvard. In these meets. Academy standards fell to Greg Camp in the mile, Larry Hart in the discus, Sopheenom Bob Wallis in the Jave- lin, and Leroy Outlaw In the triple jump. The Navy meet provided a fitting climax to 68 ' s varsity career. The rain fell victim to a bright sun just as the Mids were vanquished by a superior Army team. Victories in IS of the 18 events pointed to only one hero: the TEAM. The score says It all: Army 114, Navy 40. m H K HJ DAN SEEBART Captain r . f: f. 8 ' i ' OUTDOOR TRACK TEAM— First Row, Left to Right: laconis, Spelman, Outlaw, LImbaugh, Seebart, Camp, Cochran, McDonald, Black, Hart.

RFK GOES HOME 447 JUNE WEEK . . . was the setting for the culmination and the completion of our years at West Point. There were some lapses in the weather, but not in the gaiety or the significance of the occasion. It was a time for the praise of proud parents, a feeling of accomplishment, and also for sober contemplation of the past and the future. One big event of every June Week is the year-end battle with the Naval Academy. This had a special signifi- cance for the graduating class, since it represented our final Army-Navy games as members of the Corps of Ca- dets. I iiiii " 448 449 June Week, when West Point sends a new class of graduates into the world, is also the traditional occasion for the return of graduates past. We honored, with them, those who have gone be- fore us, and the institution of which we are all a part. Events seemed to accelerate as the long-awaited day drew near. At the Baccalaureate Services we were re- minded again of the meaning of our duty, past and future. Mothers dabbed at their eyes, and fathers too, as the Cadet Chapel resounded to the strains of ' ' Onward, Christian Soldier. ' ' We heard the applause of the crowds at the Graduation Parade as we stepped out of the ranks of the Corps of Cadets, and the most impassive among us could not remain unmoved by the sounds of Auld Lang Syne and The West Point March. The last night was marked by the banquet and the most beautiful hop of all, a never-to-be-forgotten oc- casion for many a young gentleman and lady. -r f -. .. l y mti Mi±c:ji.jiMiimmmMSm pP 1ft iB iB M7 M " i H irf(f«IJfl « ci!; ' : ■i l ■ " ' ' J ' :V iL ' i u:£ t - ' ■■•:: iM H 450 . . . ladies and gentlemen, and mem- bers of the Class of Nineteen Sixty- . . . there is a butt of a day until . . .

Today, graduates like myself who grew up in the 19th century, who have witnessed immensity of growth in every characteristic of American greatness - military and economic and moral - envy you men the even more amazing advances and changes you will witness and help shape. What confronts you in the years ahead, demanding of you flexibility in response to constantly changing chal- lenges and the knowledge fortified by wisdom properly to counsel and to decide, may well be both a richer and a more rewarding future than confronted my generation. Nevertheless, on the world scene that you will possess — so different from what I have known, three words will still comprise an immutable treasure of guidance for your careers — Duty, Honor, Country. y Dwight D. Eisenhower ROBERT MICHAEL ALEXANDER Morgantown, West Virginia H — 2 Whether giving " the Days " in a split second plebe year or telling about his girl problems thereafter, Bob, affectionately labelled " The Slur, " has left his mark at West Point. Not having any real difficulty with the Academic Department or the TD, he managed to spend a good portion of his time leading his " Rag- time Band " among the cheering masses at foot- ball rallies. Always willing to lend a helping hand or give a little advice. If you had the time to listen, Bob will be an asset to any branch of the Army, especially If his mother continues to send him those enormous boodle boxes.

He was a rpaster at entering the classroom one step ahead of the Instructor, writing draftless 18.0 term papers the night before they were due, and convincing the TD that his shock of hair was short. His loyalty to his friends, and to his cherished ideals, were boundless. Never acquiring a love for gray, Andy often could be found admiring Storm King Mountain from his niche overlooking the Supe ' s garden. Al- though Yale and Princeton lost Andy Anderson the scholar to West Point, the Army will some- day lose this soldier to his first love.

Philadelphia proved to be a great base of operations for the trips he took as an active member of the Astronomy Club and the Catholic Choir. And after the Big Battles with Navy on the gridiron, Tony was great in organizing the company parties.

His more easily worried roommates were always amazed at the nonchalant de- tachment with which he could sleep undisturbed through a tumultuous after-taps bull session or a Saturday morning inspection by the Tac.

Academics being no problem, ttie concentra- tion of most ' of his energies was on extra- curricular activities, paramount among these being the glee club. Always ready to listen and give a word of encouragement, when he wasn ' t on a trip, Chuck will be considered a good and lasting friend by many.

Class Rank — Platoon Sergeant XLVI It is my passionate conviction that wfiat the new generation of Americans do and think — particularly those who are universi- ty and college trained — will determine the future course of world affairs. justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once ob- served that the only people he despised wer e those who stayed aloof from the pas- sions of their times. Because of circumstances beyond their control, the new generation of college trained Americans will be unable to remain aloof from the passions of their times at home or in the world at large. They have an inescapable responsibility to become in- volved. They will be educated men and women and, because of that, they will have a special responsibility to their community. Because they are Americans, they will have an inescapable responsibility to the world community. This becomes clear as we face the facts of life that surround America ' s po- sition in the world.

As a well mannered gentleman, Jim took up such incongruous ac- tivities as smashing opposing linemen with his blasts from the backfleld and churning ca- noes across Popolopen. Always just a step in front of academics — a half-step at that — Jim never let up in anything he did but ap- proached all with a serious and thoughtful at- titude. This same attitude will be a most wel- come asset to Jim and to the Army in the future. Football 4, 3, 2, I.

No matter what may follow, this point will always remain an important mile- stone in your personal achievement. As you set forth to shoulder the responsibilities of a commissioned officer, you should be mindful of the fact that your education is far from complete. In a very real sense, it is just beginning. Four intensive years of study and training at the Military Academy have given you, however, an excellent foundation on which to build. Ahead lie the years of experience and learning necessary for you to become a seasoned and effective professional. The opportunities for education and professional at- tainment in today ' s Army are unequalled in our history. Flow far you progress in your service depends in large part on your willingness to take advantage of these op- portunities and your initiative in seeking out positions of increasing responsibility. To all of y ou go my congratulations and best wishes for the future and my sincere hope that you find, in a life of dedicated service to our Nation, a stimulating and re- warding career. Stanley R.

Tom never had to worry about himself, but he more than made up for it, for Tom was charged with the responsibility of keeping the whole crowd in C — 2 proficient. If it were not for Tom, our ranks would have been consider- ably thinner. Guys with brains are not uncommon at West Point, but men like Tom are unique. Tom was much more than just an omniscient tutor. He was genuinely interested in helping his charges, and his admonition to " just derive it — don ' t spec it " meant more than any of us realized. Tom has a great mind, but it is dwarfed by the qualities that endeared him to all of us as a lifelong friend.

Class Rank — Company Training Officer fC For twenty years, the essential foreign policy of the United States has been the containment of Communism, and this poli- cy has proceeded behind a military shield, mainly of the U. S. Army. When we see that since 1948, except for a fluke in Cuba, Com- munism has not gained one foot of land anywhere, we must conclude that the U. S. policy has been a success and that the Com- munist program for world domination has been a failure, and so generations of people in this and other countries will be indebted to Americans in Army uniform and in civil- ian clothes who helped to preserve their freedom.

He spent many long hours dangling from the rafters of the old Army theater installing the lighting system used for the Dialectic Society ' s shows. The rest of George ' s free time was devoted to photography and Pat, his OAO, with perhaps an occasional moment set aside each day for extracting an education from his beloved texts. George will never lack friends. Ideals, ambi- tion or anything else important to the living of a good, full rewarding life. He will certainly be a credit to his country, the Army and to his native Alaska. Dialectic Society 4, 3,2, I : Howitzer Photography I.

His cadet career may be aptly titled " The Loneliness of the Long-DIstance Runner, " a saga in which he willingly chose to remain Ignorant of and unchanged by the pressures which were administratively placed upon him. In short, Scurve remained a true friend, un- impressed by the unimportant, unirritated by the Irritating and the best half-mller and worst speller the Chemical Corps will ever hope to see.

In the history of every good people, its finest young men have offered their lives and for- tunes to protect the community they serve. Today our young men step forward to pro- tect not only lives but the freedom and as- pirations of oppressed people across the world. When our Country hears their pleas for protection from persecution, she turns to you. I have everywhere asked our people to sustain you in peace and in war. I ask them to share my reverence for the Corps for its spirit of self-sacrifice. Your honor and the integrity of our national ideals are insepar- able. I need not tell you. Senior Classmen, the burden which that places upon you in the highest tradition of the Corps. Having known so many of your splendid predeces- sors personally, I congratulate you with the utmost confidence that you know the full meaning of the sacred oath you will take as Officers of the United States Army.

Whoever is stirred by the recognition that duty is a sunn- moning word; and whoever is moved by the thought of the millions of officers and men who march through the pages of American history under the leadership of Grant and Sherman; of Pershing; of Eisenhower and MacAr- thur; and now of General Westmoreland in Viet-Nam, must thrill at the thought of West Point, where such leadership was forged. You are on the threshold of great careers — richer in the true sense of the word than any purely money-making occupation could possibly be. You will be richer in terms of the reward that you get during your life; richer in honor and in satisfaction for responsible work well done; and richer in the meaning that you will give to human life. In Pericles ' deathless words, West Point has long had a ' ' home in the minds of men. " And this will continue. For, in spite of all our efforts, the world is dangerous and dis- orderly. And, in times of violence and chaos, we look to West Pointers for the hard, steely resolve to rise above the wreckage, take command and save our nation. Yours, therefore can be the triumph — and the glory. As you begin your careers of leading America through the valley of danger, I salute you and wish you well.

You will see the entire home front tested by the requirements of Vietnam as it has never been since the Civil War. Such history-making events may give you cause to re- flect upon the continuing need of our country for the rugged virtues of honor, loyalty and integrity among its leaders which have been the guidelines of your training at West Point.

Although pinned to a GE 225, Jeff somehow found the time to squeeze the necessary tenths out of the Social Science Department. He managed to win everyone ' s friendship except that of the Plebe class — he ' s a stickler for discipline. Jeff isn ' t the career type — he only wants to stay in 30 years.

While this could be said of other classes, and undoubtedly has been, let me tell you why I think it is particularly true in this instance. Our Nation has accepted the heavy responsibilities of leader- ship of the Free World, and, together with other freedom-loving nations, is engaged in defeating aggressors who encroach upon the rights of free men. The challenges facing us have never been greater. Yet, there are some who fail to perceive this danger to lib- erty or appreciate fully the scope of the challenges that you now must meet squarely. You must provide leadership in a young and changing Army that offsets its lack of experience with skill, cour- age, and determination. You must have patience, perseverance, persistence, and a firm conviction in your profession. You will be expected to know your profession. As leaders you must be firm, fair and yet human and compassionate. You must be selfless. You should be aware of a basic fact that a great deal that is worthwhile can be accomplished if one is not overly concerned with who gets the credit for the deed. I know that you will be a credit to your profession. il . Zo. K HAROLD K.

You also depart with thousands of words of advice ringing in your ears, and a re- solve to do your duty as Americans in the best traditions of the heritage passed on to you. If there is one quality I hope you have gained and will maintain throughout your life, it is that of having an inordinate " curiosity " to the world around you. Not just in the military sense, but in ev- erything you do. It is this sense of curiosity, of the " why, " of won- der, of questioning, of decision, that is at the heart of all progress, whether it be in the profession of military science, art, religion, philosophy. Government, etc. Socrates once said, " Wisdom begins in wonder, " which is another way of saying wisdom begins in curiosity. Every bit of progress ever made by man came because someone was curious about " how to do it better, " or wanted to know more of the unknown, and that is no less true today than it was in the time of Socrates. Best regards to each one of you on your graduation and may the results of your boundless curiosity in many fields help bring about that wonderful future to which we look forward. Sincerely yours John H. Glenn, )r. Colonel, USMC (Ret.

In so doing he excelled in those ac- tivities in which he exerted himself. The Mets have made a life-long fan, the dialectic so- ciety gained a good, hard working, and de- pendable vice-president, and the academic department was ever a constant reminder that there are more than 101 ways to play solitaire.

His ability in the pool was not quite equaled in either Eartlett or Thayer Hall but he was not at Home in anything less than seven feet of water. His distinctive hat pegged him an avid Armor file.

After he had had a year of work and another of college, the AAA recog- nized John ' s potential and brought hinn fronn Germany to fire on Army ' s rifle team. Since he has been here, John has impressed his classmates and others as being a fair person and conscientious of his responsibilltes both as a student and a cadet. The esteem in which he is held by his friends is evidenced by his election as captain of the 1968 rifle team. In June 1968 the army will truly gain a fine officer and a gentleman.

Class Rank — Platoon Leader CLXIV Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be duty, honor, country. Others will debate the controversial issues, national and international, which divide men ' s minds. But serene, calm, aloof, you stand as the Nation ' s war guardian, as its lifeguard from the raging tides of international conflict, as its gladiator in the arena of battle. For a century and a half you have defended, guarded, and protected its hallowed traditions of liberty and freedom, of right and justice. Let civilian voices argue the merits or demerits of our processes of govern- ment: Whether our strength is being sapped by deficit financing indulged in too long, by Federal paternalism grown too mighty, by power groups grown too arrogant, by politics grown too corrupt, by crime grown too rampant, by morals grown too low, by taxes grown too high, by extremists grown too violent; whether our personal liberties are as thorough and complete as they should be. These great national problems are not for your professional participation or military solution. Your guldepost stands out like a tenfold beacon in the night: Duty, honor, country. You are the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense. From your ranks come the great captains who hold the Nation ' s destiny in their hands the moment the war tocsin sounds. The long, gray line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts In olive drab. In brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses, thundering those magic words: Duty, honor, country. This does not mean that you are warmongers. On the contrary, the soldier above all other people prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. But always In our ears ring the ominous words of Plato, that wisest of all philosophers: " Only the dead have seen the end of war. " The shadows are lengthening for me. The twilight Is here. My days of old have vanished — tone and tint. They have gone glimmering through the dreams of things that were. Their memory Is one of wondrous beauty, watered by tears and coaxed and caressed by the smiles of yesterday. I listen vainly, but with thirsty ear, for the witching melody of faint bugles blowing reveille, of far drums beating the long roll. In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield. But In the evening of my memory always I come back to West Point. Always there echoes and re-echoes: Duty, honor, country. Today marks my final roll call with you. But I want you to know that when I cross the river, my last conscious thoughts will be of the corps, and the corps, and the corps. I bid you farewell.

For example, we ' re analyzing every function with our computers, from patient check-in to check-out. With one thing in mind. To create a total hospital system that will give doctors and nurses more time with patients. We call it the systems approach. And although we originally helped develop the systems engineering technique for complex aerospace projects, we ' ve found it applies to all kinds of complex civil problems. Urban redevelopment. Pollution control. Crime prevention. Mass transportation. To work on these problems, we ' ve assigned some of the best brain power among TRW ' s 75,000 employees. (We have almost 7,000 technical degree holders, including 400 PhD ' s and two per cent of the nation ' s physicists.) It ' s a natural step to take. TRW is a billion-dollar company that specializes in turning advanced concepts into practical products and services. In our kind of business, we seldom deal directly uith most people. But we like to think most people benefit from what we do. ?wf TRW ISC. {Formerly Thompson Ramo Wooldridge Jnc. Cleveland, Ohio— Balanced diversity in Electronics, Space, Aii ■aft.

In 1959, when our band of engineering experts intro- duced Wide-Tracking, a good portion of the nation ' s eyebrows lifted in skepticism. But here it is 1968. And Wide-Tracking makes ordinary cars seem even more so by comparison. This year, Pontiacs, like that long, luxurious Bonne- ville below, ride more quietly, more comfortably, more smoothly than ever before. Our habit of introducing revolutionary firsts continues with the world ' s first bumper that you have to kick to believe. (It ' s standard equipment on this year ' s Car of the Year, the GTO.) And our reputation for building great road machines is enhanced every time one of the five Pontiac Firebirds IS sent into motion. Which is often. So when you add it all up, there ' s really no doubt that ' 68 Pontiacs will be talked about for years to come And lucky you. You can own one without paying classic car prices.

It ' s called the PCV valve. And its )0b IS to keep fumes inside your engine, so they ' ll burn away instead of adding to the air- pollution problem But if this little valve gets clogged, you ' ve got another problem. Engine pollution. Fumes stay trapped inside your engine. They can ' t burn up and can ' t get out. Eventually, they form corrosive deposits that can rum your engine, and stop it from running. To help prevent this we ' ve come out with a • new Detergent Oil that will keep this little valve clean up to twice as long as ordinary oil We call It Mobiloil Super lOW-40. It keeps dirt suspended, and doesn ' t let de- posits settle down mside your engine (Where they can gum up the works.) And because dirt stays suspended, it goes down the dram when you change oil Mobiloil Super lOW-40 costs a little more than ordinary oil. But it doesn ' t thin out as fast. So your engine won ' t use as much of it. You won ' t have to change it as often. And you ' ll end up money ahead m the long run. The next time you change your oil, change to Mobiloil Super lOW-40, Both you dnd your engine wiii breathe eastei M©bil The Detergent Oil 640 GT E wm spelling llOllt.

Now off the ground and undergoing extensive testing at Lockheed ' s Van Nuys, California, plant, this new warrior will use its 250-mph speed, aerial agility, and devastating armament in multiple-support operations that typify Lockheed ' s ready responsive- ness to Army needs. Ten prototypes are being tested or are nearing completion. And Lock- heed is preparing for large-scale production of 375 of these advanced combat craft. Cheyenne will escort troop-carrying helicopter convoys, diverting from column to knock out hostile ground targets, then dashing to rejoin and cover. As it approaches the combat destination, this revolutionary new compound helicopter will speed ahead, soften landing sites, and keep them suppressed during troop land- ings. Armed with grenade launchers, machine guns, rockets and antitank missiles, Cheyenne will unleash stun- ning firepower with high accuracy — at top speed, at hover, and at any velocity in between. The Cheyenne will be integrated into Army units and live in the for- ward combat areas with the ground troops. It will be immediately respon- sive to the ground commander ' s needs, for Cheyenne can be serviced and rearmed in just 10 minutes. The proven ability to understand present mission requirements and anticipate future ones, coupled with technological competence, enables Lockheed to respond to the needs of the U. S. Army in a divided world. LOCKHEED LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT CORPORATION 645 AERO JET... leaders in advanced technology for the armed forces, government and industry.

It ' s the Accutron® timepiece. It doesn ' t work like a watch because it has no bal- ance wheel, no mainspring, no hairspring. We left those parts out of Accutron because they can make a watch run fast or slow. We ' ve replaced all that bal- ance wheel business with a tiny tuning fork that hums. The tuning fork vibrates 360 times a second. No watch that ticks deals with a second that precisely. The best a ticking watch can do is divide a second into 5 or 10 parts. The tuning fork ' s uncanny precision makes Accutron so nearly perfect that we can guarantee accuracy to within 60 seconds a month. And many owners say they don ' t lose that in a year. If you look into an Accutron timepiece, you won ' t see the same things going on in there that go on in your ticking watch. But don ' t be alarmed. It ' s all part of our anti-tick movement.
