;v f « » ' i ,.». i. . :t MISSION The mission of the United States Military Academy is to instruct and train the Corps f Cadets so that each graduate shall have the qualities and attributes essential to his pro- gressive and continuing development throughout a career as an officer of the Regular Army. Inherent in this mission are the objectives: MENTAL — To provide a broad collegiate education in the arts and sciences leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. MORAL— To develop in the cadet a high sense of duty and the attributes of charac- ter, with emphasis on integrity, discipline, and motivation essential to the profession of arms. PHYSICAL —To develop in the cadet those physical attributes essential to a career as an officer of the Regular Army. MILITARY — To provide a broad military education rather than Individual proficiency in the technical duties of junior officers. Such proficiency is, of necessity, a gradual de- velopment, the responsibility for v hich devolves upon the graduates themselves and up- on the commands and schools to which they are assigned after being commissioned. ( .. .t I r i.N.jf4 Y . . . to instruct and train the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate shall have the qualities and attributes essential to his . . . career as an officer of the Regular Army. At the heart of these words, inherent to the Mission of the United States Military Academy, lies the sole purpose of the Academy— to train men to become leaders of men. To accomplish te facets of a person ed. A cadet learns to deal M it:h others by being continuously a mennber of a group. He is required to n-iaintain a level of physical pre- paredness so he will be able to lead his men physically, not sinnply ob- serve them passively. He is ex- posed to a broad range of acadenn- ic subjects, so he will be familiar with how to deal with the environ- nnent in M hich he must act. V - ,-«3S«.l6s- -j-in Situations similar to those he will face later arise during a ca- det ' s four years,and he must learn to temper hinnseif and success- fully deal utfith these situations. h During these years of a unique learning and living experience, a cadet Cannes to know a wide range of personal experience. This range of experience includes tinnes of depression and boredom, as well as times of heightened aware- ness and moments of elation. 1 ' 3 unique • ' ide range ' " ' is range ' ' iiftes of | " i, as well ' t aware, ilatjon. This range of experience in- cludes. ..kna A ing t:he ant:icipation of the first of four Christmas leaves being only days a A ay, the infectious, rising strength of a rally, as the voice of the Corps echoes off the river, the occasional pleasure of a per- fect: board, and the fuifillnnent of Ring A eekend and the end of a three year w ait. Other experiences are known during t:i-iis four years, «aa...t:he loneliness of a solitary Grant Hall coke, watching the ice on the river, the forgotten awkward- ness with the one whom you haven ' t seen in six months, the tense awareness of a term paper suddenly due. Each separate experience, unique in it:5 st:rengt:h and impact;, fits with each other experience into a pattern that takes four years to complete. Yet each expe- rience must be dealt A ith individ- ually, for from these single bits of an overall pattern a cadet learns nnore of himself, and becomes, perhaps unconsciously, more capable of leading others. 10 ; ., t And of all t:he t:asks t:hat: must: be accomplished, the most: diffi- cult: is teaching the cadet to deal effectively with himself. For lead- ers are men, too, and before they can provide leadership for others, they must at least be aware of what lies within thennselves. Wf ' ..s i . Xs :- f ' WtM This process of becoming aware certiainiy st:ar«s before a cadet enters the Corps, and will contin- ue long after he graduates, but during his years at AA est Point, the process of the quest for awareness becomes, perhaps for the first time, evident. 12 The lessons learned from each experience can be applied when the graduate faces those he leads for the first tinne, or the hundredth tinne. For then the graduate sees a purpose in the pattern, a reason for his four years ' preparation. 13 the f 14 The graduat:e is better prepared to deal A ith the problems of those he leads because he too knows the " thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, " the dread of anticipation and the fulfillment of a task accomplished, the need for solitude and the strength of friendship. 16 The graduate, t:hrough the bond of similar experience, can more fully relate to those he leads. Be- cause, although his four year experience provided only one particular pattern, there is in that pattern a large degree of univer- sality. So the pattern built of individ- ual experience during four years of realization and pondering, during four years of kno A ing ex- citennent, depression and happi- ness, is not fit to be locked away en-iory. Each experience has the result of causing deep- er personal a A arene5S and add- ing to the base upon which a leader is built. " years ' away Eventually a time comes when the basic underlying mood of A est Point makes itself kno A n. The sum feeling of the pattern is suddenly clear. So beneath the elation of that last day there is deeper nneaning, and tem- pering the assurance of that kno A l- edge there is the realization of purpose -purpose accomplished and yet only begun. : iTniiayj wf-- y ' ' i ' WiHiin» ' iM- ' g ,i,AaMag5;r ' -,T)ai4 .-.

Strett That section of the mind to which is relegated the contents of the general chemistry course contains diverse visions of unnamable carbon chains, un- relatable chemical terms and symbols, and memories of the labs that somehow were cadet-proof. Although the entire gamut of topics was run, the cadet ' s innate ability to cling to odd bits of information came to the fore. Somewhere in that mind, perhaps along with the answers to trivia questions and the sports records for the past five years, is some information to help gain a better understanding of the physical world. COL D. MacWILLIAMS 46 Our earliest encounter with our nemesis, the GE 225 computer, came with our association with the Department of ES and GS. There we began our careers as Army engineers, astronauts, geologists, draftsmen, professional map-readers, and just about anything else that can be connected with the earth, space, and graphics. Our trek up the six flights of stairs twice every other day even prepared us for the infantry. The basic orientation toward engineering given to us by this department remained with us throughout our four or five years at the academy, and will remain with us wherever we go. First Row. MAJ W. V.

" Yes, we got a real charge from all of the runnors and sayings we had heard about juice— that is, until the rumors became shockingly true. It was a year of asp ' s, computer labs, and informative Saturday lectures. We were often baffled by our low capacity to understand the world of networks, impedances, superposition or what Thevenin did to Norton. With the help of our instructors we struggled through our labs with very short circuits. It was no problem at all to connect the red cord to the gray or the blue one to the green.

Rosenkranz, MAJ P. C. Hoy, LTC R. L. Merrick You ' ve got to give the English Department the credit due it. Firstie English is really the peak of our academic caieers. Plebe English was just a part of the general daze in which we pinged for a year. About the only thing we can remember about it was losing 2.0 on a 6.0 theme for spelling. Yearling English was a refined form of mental torture designed to build up frustration over unforeseeable writs and demerits for " failing to follow specific written ... " How will we ever forget the mornings we fell asleep standing up at the boards in chemistry? After staying up all night pulling out our English term papers (RD = FC), we hit the boards so hard with our heads the other guys woke up. After three years of drill in scientific pull-out we are now privileged to exercise our fertile and flexible minds in the wonders of philosophy. But even a philosophical outlook won ' t alter the fact that one more English class is one less day ' til graduation. 50 Although cadet slang and expository English were enough new languages to learn, we all realized the need to prepare our minds for our future worldly travels. But since only a select few cadets could take Swahili, the rest of us had to search deep to justify this mysterious new way of losing tenths. The goal of teaching each cadet to communicate in a foreign country was accomplished however, and we are all grateful to the Foreign Language Department that we can not only converse in East Side Manhattan, but also ask for seconds in the Mess Hall. A tribute to the department is the fact that some of us voluntarily chose to ping to sixth floor, Washington Hall to further our studies after yearling year. First Row: MAJ M. L. Thomas, LTC E.

Crifes With the cry " Elephants on line, " the First Class plunged into a new year under a new department. The History Department, born of the old AA.A. E., was teaching for the first time and preparing to expand in order to teach all the S.S. history courses. Despite such credentials of youth and vigor the course looked like the same old " Art. " Tramping through 2,000 years of names and places during the 1st semester some of our classfnates became under- standably disoriented— " Alexander the Great ' s Prus- sian Army? " , " Renningsberg and Samsondorf at Jan- nenfurt? " -but in all such cases the study of tech- nological advances like the " development of sophisti- cated breastworks, " brought our minds back on the right path. COL T. GRIESS 52 Wide-eyed and eager, we fledgling Perry Masons entered the world of jurisprudence. Behind the soft nonmilitary facade of the Law Department, though, lay that typical untappable store of tenths. We knew we were in trouble when they advised us of our rights under Article 31 before the TEE. But, after wading through miles of legal red tape, " skimming " 40 page lessons and dodging 1.0 " PR ' s, " we emerged, as any ordinary reasonable prudent cadet would, with the realization that, possibly, law was just a bit more complex than we had imagined. firsf Row.

With a flair for theatrics, the department created wounds so real on us that we felt like recondo chickens. Although the tourniquet around the neck wasn ' t especially popular, we Dr. Kil- dares did learn the value of quick and skillful reaction which will be invaluable to us throughout our careers. The Cadet Hostess Office serves the Corps of Cadets in numerous ways. They assist the cadets in planning their social activities from simple picnics to formal hops, and arrange private dancing lessons, and answer ques- tions on etiquette, wedding plans and guest accommoda- tions. During the summer months they operate an addi- tional office at Camp Buckner and plan a varied program to highlight the cadets ' free time. We always receive encouragement or a few words of friendly advice in a very relaxing and homelike atmosphere. We truly owe them very much for their efforts to help us in our development.

The GE 225, in one of its weaker moments printed out a joke and called it B-1. In later attempting to correct its error it programmed four iterations of Tactical Officers. Thus the stage was set. Unsuspecting on 1 July 1966, the B-1 Class of 70 passed Snuffy ' s going North for the first time. Our path to infamy wasn ' t the yellow brick road we anticipated. Rather it was dilapidated 9W. Our pugnacious spirit decreased geometrically from Beast Barracks WETSU through Yearling RASBAAA to Firsty " Stay alive and out in five. " Our company of hard corps bachelors took 75% casualties from its encounters with the opposite sex. Al- though dubious as Yearlings, it appears now that Father Time had been moving steadily, although imperceptibly, toward the seemingly unobtainable goal of graduation. Looking back over our four years as cadets, the friend- ships made and experiences gained far outweigh the negative aspects of cadet life: T.D., OPE, SAMI, MIE, SCJT, CB, NCB, pre-AOT, AAA 101, PH 202, EL 304, GE 401 . . .

However, after blowing his mind at the first beef call we settled down to our normal madness. With 50% getting married, you would think that C-1 couldn ' t raise the roof, but you ' d never prove it by CAT, LECK, or EARL JR. who spent one entire June Week in their own Twilight Zone. C-l ' s contribution to the cultural environment was the MUSE- VIEHL Infantry Officer ' s Professional Library which will be a constant guiding light throughout our five years. Poor HERB couldn ' t find the fountain of youth in Africa, and RAM-JET was so busy working out that he never had time to tell him how old he really was. BRUCE went on to higher heights and TOAA shot for stars. AVE bought the only Vette and zoomed off into the wild blue yonder. Our own singing sensation, STEVIE WONDER couldn ' t quite out-noise HECKLE and JECKLE. With SMOKE STACK on the ski slopes and BAMMA ' s head beginning to look like one, the only person you could find no weekends was ETCHEURY sitting con.

Schilling F-1 We endured the rigors of plebe year in F-1, last Bastion of the Old Corps, looked upon with awe by our classmates in other regiments unfortunate enough to enter our area, only to leave after several hours spent in the now archaic 4th Class position of attention. The members of ' 68 were always willing to spend hours helping us to love this place and develop the true F-1 spirit. At Buckner we developed a new feeling of solidarity, and the spirit of the after taps raid, the will to obtain victory over the Proud Rifles through massive retalia- tion. As Yearlings we had no duties and no responsibilities, and contrary to current attitudes, loved it. The Gussey inspired us all. Cow year found the less notable members of our intelli- gentsia firmly entrenched in the last sections, waging war of attrition with Ranger Juice. Playing squad leader was the high point of our 9 months of marking time. The First class Trip, with foreign relations in Mexico, the target acquisition radar, and happy hour at the O Club, was a fitting end to the year. After the summer, we returned to find new duties and responsibilities, and everything was Gross. Deluged with administrivia, we marveled at the efficiency of the status report, special monitoring, and clothing inspections. We had out- standing leadership experiences, leading our men to the Mess Hall and inspiring our company during drill. Our new under- classmates, the plebes, provided another opportunity for lead- ership, leading them by the hand. While the Corps may have gone, F-1 still prevails as the last Bastion. 82 SECOND CLASS First Row: R. Lundy, D. Wenker, J. Floyd, I. Shin, T. Berry, S. Wilcox Second Row: J. Grazioplene, D. Curry, J.

Achieving the Nietzschean ideal of mediocrity on the surface, 1-1 stood by its own during the various storms that swept over C-wing this year, and became known for its tendency to meet regs halfway. " Cadets run the company " was, for the first time for many of us, a fact rather than a slogan . . . and, sometimes, a real pain in the neck for I ' s Tactical Officer, Major Charles Baker. Therefore, not shackled by overworry with respect to Regimental Competition, the Leper Colony joined hands and marched off to oblivion on the drill field, disaster in intramurals, and deficiency in academics. The Iguanas took life in stride, rolled with the punches, fought back when they could, grumbled when they couldn ' t etc.; in short, without fanfare, and also without a whole lot of quill, I became one of those nebulous groupings of reluctant warriors known as a cadet company . . . which is accomplishment enough for a Leper Colony. 88 SECOND CLASS First Row.

We were then indoctrinated into the Frat by the Worm. We were the class that mangled the minutes, lost laundry, misplaced mail. We fell into and further established the traditions and folklore of the Frat from Alpha II. The years to follow were not that bad as we gained the new TAC ' s— Jumpin ' Jimmie and Wayne the man. These men had quite a bit to do in molding the lives of the likes of Big 1st. Capt. John (JC), HH-Harold the Hair, the Tide, a Nicarauguan Refugee, a wet-back named Garz, a shadow someone called Scotter, the com- puter from Mizzu, the duck, Jean Claude Beddow, DB, and JP.

Uncle Al kept his slate clean as a match- maker as many girls took the primrose path after seeing Al ' s moves. Grey discovered that in addition to being an academic genius he was officially " svelte. " The once proud Rock Squad has been decimated by the numerous double envelopments of the fairer sex. Johnse even traded his autographed picture of Connie Kreske for a b ' ind date from Ladycliffe. Trams and Schmittv discovered to their dismay that their baldness was definitely terminal, and Mel disclosed that the growth on his shoulders was not a head, but actually Mount Rushmore. When he wasn ' t on weekend in Connecticut, Casey could be counted on to instigate some fiendish plot . . . who can forget the night he poured water all over Howie ' s bed?

Staff specialist Kahuna the Gripe made Veep; twice In a row ... in technology, the Iron Chancellor Innovated a new use for the Butt Can at Ft. Monmouth . . . Donny Frazer the renagade Quasimodo chimed his way out of the Gyrene Corps, ie. Super Grunts while Stevey Roberts, the Israeli kid, had his own lightning victory. In athletics, there was Mohammed Altuna alias punchy Martinez and Thomas was finally pinned by sparring partner . . . Terrill got R-2 Jock Award (small) despite competition from Big Red Lynch . . . Jean Claude Toad alias Adelf Thornton represented the Corn Belt and Brian Smith nearly took the piddle championship but lost to Drab on COM. Socially, Hicks tried hard to find an Olive for Drab, but the Army made the supreme effort at Monmouth . . . Skip never had a prayer . . . then there was Hales, or was there? . . .

Hall Arriving piecemeal after a dismal Plebe Year else- where, and having just spent the best summer of our lives, the Gators of ' 70 muddled into a Yearling slump. While quenching our thirst for other than academic en- deavors, we were disastrously interrupted by a monkey escaped from the zoo next door. Of course we must mention June Encampment . . . June Encampment? Most of us got out of con in time for football season, although some of us barely got out of bed in time for the games- ask Lew and John. Brian ( " that ' s two " ) dwopped da ball at the Christmas party, and the company was overrun by Gene ' s and Boone ' s birds, and Walt ' s and Heff ' s hamsters. Firsty year saw Gary ' s experiment in tyranny. Chip ' s at- tempts to mediate, Smitty ' s attempts to alleviate, and Mugs ' efforts to provide the cheese we ate. While Hank and Younga brought us athletic prowess, the Sergeants III added academics. Various pairs provided diversity dur- ing our glamorous three years: Rick and the Pope, Corf and Conk, Bob and Dan, Geoff and Tom, and John; despite the diversity, we ' ll be Gators to the end. i 106 •■ ' " -■ ' " ■- ' r f- SECOND CLASS Firtt Row: J.

Kahalekai After a long day of dropping tenths in classes filled with empty faces and proctored by tyrannical strangers, where does one turn if not to Apple-Hood and Mother- Pie? When they take away the cold beer and T.V. and replace it with acetic coffee and re-run movies, the best one can hope for is a good company. A fortunate few of us were picked by the omnipotent, omniscient computer to serve our tenure as cadets in H-2. And so, on a 2-1 form we remain members of H-2, but as our ranks were filled with roving minstrels, hard-core Hawaiians, and jolly Jews, we became the Happy Company. We may not be better than the rest of the companies, but our trunk room has a little more hidden contraband, our locker rooms smell a little bit more rancid, and our brown-boys are a little warmer. We remain the Tactical Department ' s problem child, but when reality finally and inevitably rears its ugly head, we stare fate and OPE in the eyes and turn our desk blotters over for the fifteenth time. Even though a twenty-four hour day is filled with ten hours in class, ten hours in Intramurals, and ten hours in call-to-quarters, in the broad scope of things, we spend a very short time as Cadets, and why not spend it happily?— in The Happy Company. 108 SECOND CLASS First Row: D.

Sikes A-3 Always noted for athletics, the A-3 firsties prided themselves for their brain-trust that they established early in 1967. Rozzie, Nick, Mac, and Squatty became famous for their late semester rallies. A couple of times they almost pulled the wool over the eyes of the ac- ademicians with many hours of much-needed poop from Duck, J. P., Seagull, the Scratch, Nuc, and Psycho. Thank goodness Mase and Whit left before the tenths reservoir was gone. Some of us found time to sleep away the " idle " hours. The Bear and Gezoat hibernated for four long years while Soda Pop and the Hague used lacrosse as an excuse for staying awake for two years. Iron Man preferred to spend his time and money at Snuffy ' s, but he was not alone. Poggy and, yes, even Nerd found time to visit his sanctuary. Grin spent most of his time between girls and founded the system of pinning a girl by air mail and Ogre, along with his sidekick, Birdman, hid from the TAC. But we all found time to graduate. 116 ¥ W SA V SECOND CLASS First Row: J. Thompson, R. Gates, F. Bifuico, R. Lambert, F. Baldwin, J. Schmieder, G. Gaffney Second Row; AA. Ciferri, D. Rowland, R.

Throughout the four years we have been together, we have learned to bring fraternity life to a seemingly insurmountable autocratic surrounding. Under the watch- ful eye and domineering quill pad of our beloved tac, we have come from a midnight mace attack, through our own regimental barbershop and hopefully to that final goal, our la st G. E. class. With such liberal CO ' s as Ruts and Addi, who had to deal with such radicals as Tross, Boo, Bigson, Spic and Jew, we developed policies which were rejected again and again by our understanding and qualified officer counterparts. Murph ' s removable hair, Bellot ' s gifts in the mail, Jake ' s B-ball, Grr ' s stripes, and Luke ' s romance along with Bozo, Roadrunner, Minor- bird, Howelli and Captain America have all contributed to make our last year our closest one. Tribute is also due to R. P., Vatt, Schmifty and Dumpy for their part. It is too bad that we lost our own homebread Duck to the untimely end of six stripes. It is with misty eyes and lengthening hair that we look back on such a gang. 120 SECOND CLASS First Row; S. Wood, P. Grant, Curry, B. Smith, G. Schrubbe, Landis, J. Lilley Second Row: M.

We ' ll never forget how Ohms always racked yet got stars and zebra stripes. How about finding Sid studying in the latrine at 3:00 in the morning. And there was Vick with the perfect body but he was on the All-American Pistol Team too. And money was never any problem for Drinks. We ' ll never forget Boy Varnell and AAad-dog Engram, our very own southern gentlemen. And what about Ishida who would never come out of the showers on December 7th. Coops and Ramjet Rains kept the class academic average on the drill rolls. LB was our ace in the pin department on five occasions. FC will be remembered for his manly texture. Conrad was our all-around athlete . . . although he could care less. The TD always v anted Bob ' s scalp, but never did. We hope Willy Colson shows up when we need air support. Goose and a racket went well together. Jenks make Skippy Peanut Butter a rich company. Hulk Holton, our Triathlon whiz, gave us the Brigade Championship three years in a row. The only tenths that Riles grubbed was from OPE. Airborne Jags, OD thru and thru, only wished he could be " top " all his life. And Jeep loved every minute of it here.

Meranda G-3 G-3 has striven since its conception to set the standards for the rest of the Corps. Unfortunately we have con- tinually been cursed with Commanding Officers and Tactical Officers who seem to feel that rules are made to be followed, nol- broken. Luckily these people have not been able to force their radical views on the re- mainder of the company. Consequently G-3 ' s proud rec- ord of indifference in all aspects of cadet life remains by and large unblemished. G-3 is eternally grateful for its light tactical head, which runs the company with two hands tied behind its back. We, the class of 1970, wish G-3 to be remembered for: its private hot line to the academic board at finals time, the most first class privates. West Point ' s only underground radio station, WKOK, Christmas parties, the lowest grade ever attained on a Math WGR (0.2 out of 9.0), four out of seven of the Magnificent Seven, and the largest percentage of one class ever to be deficient at one time. 128 SECOND CLASS First Row J.

We had two Corps Squad Capts; one was the " butt " of every jpke, the other had to do jumping jacks in the shower to get wet. Whitefish, Mont, sent us half their population with the Nordic Nerd. Our misfits, Hodad, Mark, and Pete could ski, box, and even make All-Ameri- can, but couldn ' t go Army anything.

Roy thought a car would make for less walking— HA!! T. B. really digs Gary Lewis, especially " This Diamond Ring, " oh well, there ' s always the girl next door. Who could forget how everyone confused Mike and Tony with each other . . . and Paul Newman. Rollie found the secret to mov- ing between details, and Dan finally sprouted a phone receiver in his ear. Mud had more trouble filling his " penny-bottles " than emptying them . . . HMMMM? Our shorlest star man was disappointed when he dis- covered his GOM wasn ' t high enough for him to choose NASA at branch drawings. The Wilkin should have no problem at Ranger School, he ' s used to being awakened at all hours of the night— Right Barb? R.

But somehow the establishment picked us to be the " founding fathers " of Company 1-3. The immediate problem was selecting an appropriate company name from almost an infinite number of possibilities such as insects, iguanas, etc. Invaders was finally chosen. Once settled, we had a chance to look around and see who else was fortunate enough to be living on the fifth floor of West New South. We certainly had our fair share of nicknames: Zoo, Pop, Wolfman, Big Bear, Big AI, Neck, and Hick among others. In addition, some outstanding athletes were present: Tony— 150 ' s, John— Fencing, Fred— Swimming, Bill— Wres- tling, and Mike— Track. Other " well known " individuals included Tom— the juice hive, Phil— the elbow walker, John— the Bat CO turned Training Sgt., Larry— the calm coach, Denny— the studious, Mike— the Murph, Greg— the career man, Steve— the nice guy, Steve— the engaged guy, and Chris— the administrator. In the final analysis, as the Soc Department would say, there were 21 Firsties who lived, worked, and played together like they had been in 1-3 for all four years. 132 SECOND CLASS f.rsf Row: K.

For the most part we did our own thing, and we filled our quota of hours walked and spurs spinned. Always formidable on the athletic field, we were never a bundle of tenths. We saw the last of Old North and spent two years regretting it as we climbed those six flights of stairs. We took comfort in the fact that the frustrating trivialities of West Point are good practice for the real army, and we hung together enough to win Supe ' s Award every once in a while. As we come down the home stretch, the score stands at six ' Vettes and six engaged. All of us are dying to get out there and light the Army ' s fire. We know we have learned a lot here, and we are grateful. Still, the tapioca will hit the air conditioner if the Army turns out to be like West Point. 140 SECOND CLASS First Row: D. Gerlach, J.

" Tim flew plebe year because the major flyer of time was hard work and cooperation. It was the old motto: " Just this much more, " That carried us through. After plebe year, we never faltered in reaching our objective, graduation. Cow year brought about the great outdoorsmen in the com- pany—the campers and the fisherman. The awards cere- mony at the Tac ' s was the closing event to a fine year. Firstie year: What can you say but, " It was nice. " ! 142 j«i , lii:,,,.- At SECOND CLASS FiVsf Row. C. Bayar, F.

Prior to our last exodus, in memory of good times and laughter we bequeath to each of our own the following: Weasel gets unlimited weekends in Highland Falls; Arrow receives elevator shoes; to Rude goes a chrome-plated, 425 HP AA60 machinegun; Jerry gets a squirtgun; Watt (What?) receives 60 days leave in Vietnam; Stad gets a free hair- cut; to Chick a rock; AAeenor gets two months; Dick and Anderton each get a 20-point jump on Neet; AAitch gets a 38-24-36 wetsuit; to the Crudbugs, I, II, and III a new guitar and a clean version of Tom Dooley— to DC, a golden mike; Neet gets a 20-point jump on Dick and Andertone; for Larry, Injun Mark and Dick G. are official marriage licenses; Jack can have (maybe) a good night ' s sleep; to Wild Bill (Top) an autographed copy of The Thoughts of Chairmati Mao ( " I will write and you will walk " ); and to Skull a quotation is given— any quotation will do.

Reilly E-4 EPSILON QUAD What more can be said of E-4 than has already been catalogued in the massive volumes of delinquency reports, performance evalua- tions and motivational studies of which it has oft been the subject. It would be unfair to call the men of E-4 indifferent. We do care, but about other things than being military. The emphasis in E has always been on being an individual in the face of the debilitating conformity about us, and hence it was a tremendous loss when our most notorious members were transferred from the company at the end of Cow Year. However, thank God we still had a large number of guys with the potential to carry on where Skully had left off. We shall always re- member Goody on the Obstacle Course and Jeep on the prowl. We pulled Skip through many a lover ' s crisis and still found time to needle Ray and Don the Marine. Nor can we forget good ' ol Larry the Iowa bumpkin, not to mention Rusty the Tennessee hick or hill country Sonny. The Toad left us for Brigade Staff and Rabbit spent most of his time in the Fieldhouse, but Uncle Vinnie and the three musketeers { Ralph, Dick, and Greg ) kept things going with their money making schemes. We hope they put a picture of V2 next to his Grandfather ' s in Cullum Hall someday and maybe even one of Jake and Art too. Joe will probably raise a big family in Clovis and Gary might just fly in for the wedding. We wouldn ' t be surprised either if Mike became an engineer though most likely a cynical one at that and Jeff, the mystic mama, may very well have a prediction even in the year 2000. We had good Times and bad, but our greatest asset was always that despite our differences we could remain friends. The fabled escapades of the 50th division, and fhe after taps parties are but a fleeting memory and will be forgotten. The only lasting memories are the people, for they are E-4.

Mearsheimer F-4 If Thoreau were alive today and chanced upon the men of F-4, he might see fit to describe them collectively as a company marching to a different drummer. Though less complimentary remarks about F ' s independent spirit have been heard from other quarters, we have found that the secret to muddling through four ferocious years lies in free thinking and freewheeling action. After all, who else could seize " Wait ' ll next year! " as an intramural rallying cry? Who else could take over the staff of SLUM ' N ' GRAVY and turn it into a publishing empire? Who else could turn out men like Jim AAowery, who makes the very concrete tremble when he walks; or like Jim Chand- ler, who never ceases to amaze folks with his academic prowess? Who else could have not one but two Navy weekend parties busted by the cops? Yes, it takes some pretty big men to fill a division as big as the 49th, and F rose to the occasion, taking the elevator of course. Can any other company boast 5 XKE ' s to 3 ' Vettes, or 4 guys in Tech-Admin to 3 in the Infantry? We doubt it, and as we leave, looming large in our mind is the hope that future F-Troopers will strive to maintain our inde- pendent ways Untarnished and unsullied. 148 SECOND CLASS First Row, D.

The Class of ' 70 had a lot to do with what this company has become. BLUNT to GRIFFIN and G-4 had the best of Tacs . . . we were constantly looked after. Corps Squad consistently depleted our intramural ranks until all we could do was improve. Yes, it was a long year in some respects (academics, mili- tary professionalism, and confinements) but worth every minute of that wonderful character building. We are a patient bunch, and yet proud, too. Every one of us would gladly tell you of our part in making the Corps what it is today. From the First Class all the way up the Officer Chain of Command, we stand behind our leaders ... all the way. No " angry young rebels " in this crowd! Perhaps the hardest thing to relate about G-4 is the life style of the company. Not quite a fraternity nor the apple of the TD ' s eye, G-4 has always been a place for people. This has been our home, and the friendships gained here will last long into the future. 150 r ' V " V " H . SECOND CLASS First Row. J. Passanante, K. Matwiczak, R. Wallers, M. Cupak, R.

Showing her ability in drill, the company took the fall drill streamer, while capturing the runner-up slot in brigade soccer. As the year pro- gressed, the personality of the company developed, and personalities there were. Among the major contributors were Snoogy, Top, Sulli and Wrong Poop. In December and January, the TD forced a minor upsurge in military bearing, but amnesty was granted in early February when Geoff made the scene. The respite was sweet if not particularly long. There was a big stink raised in the 44th when the BP ' s tried to clear out the cans that were blocking the plumbing. This minor hurdle was quickly overcome and 1-4 continued to the conclusion of her successful first year in the Corps. 154 • --gi !5 ' - ' - SECOND CLASS First Row: D. Shoii, T. Ogiivy, T. Tighe, H.

PEREZ FRED WHITE SHELLY NOONAN DANIEL ANDERTON 165 168 FALL SPORTS 169 FO OT BA LL A courageous Army football team posted one of the finest 4-5-1 records in the country. Led by such outstanding leaders as Lynn Moore, Hank Andrzejczak, and Paul McDowell, the team fought fiercely against a weekly serving of rugged op- ponents. Without making excuses, it might legiti- mately be said that only a few weird bounces of the football prevented us from attaining another tremendous 8-2 or even 9-1 record. Once again, the Corps of Cadets claimed as its pride and joy a unit that sweated, worked hard, and knocked heads daily to represent us well. The First Class is especially proud of Coach Cahill and his staff which produced a combined four year record of 27-12-1. : L , NEW MEXICO 31-14 Coach Tom Cahill watched his 1969 Army team trounce New Mexic o 31 to 14, in the opener, and had some words of praise for both the offensive and defense. If there were doubts about the de- fense before the season, they could be shed quickly after viewing the performances of Larry Horacek, Paul McDowell and Ken Wyrick. The offense spoke well for itself, also, with Hank Andrzejczak romping for 152 yards, giving an indication of things to come. VANDERBILT 16-6 To the glee of the entire Corps, Army journeyed to Nashville to revenge a bitter 1968 defeat by the Commodores. Army completely dominated the con- test as captain Lynn Moore picked up 152 yards in 29 carries to lead the offense. The Black Knights also appeared to have settled on a quarterback as Bernie Wall looked outstanding in completing 12 of 18 passes. Coach Cahill ' s innovation " 60 " de- fense continued to baffle opponents. The hard- hitting defenders were led by Ken Wyrick, Bryon Price, and John Brenner. The contest was hard fought, but Army was clearly the victor by a score of 16-6. TEXAS A M 13-20 A hungry bunch of Aggies came to West Point with fire in their eyes after having lost their first two games to two superb teams, L.S.U. and Ne- braska. The Aggies ' ball-control techniques and superior punting spelled defeat for the Black Knights. Both teams threw 20 passes in this game, with Army connecting on only 3 and A AA on 1 1 . Lynn Moore again proved the workhorse for the cadets as he bullied his way for 129 yards and scored the lone Cadet touchdown. Arden Jensen closed out the Army scoring with his 14th and 15th career field goals, which enabled him to establish a new Academy record in that depart- ment.

Army had little opportunity to touch the football as the Irish could do no wrong on offense. Nobody ever put forth a better effort than the Cadets, but the " profes- sionals from South Bend " were simply too much on this day. However, Army finished licking its wounds to settle down in preparation for upcom- ing business— Utah State. 4 188 UTAH STATE 7-23 Utah State was the second time of the season that a bunch of Aggies had in- vaded Michie Stadium, and this group was no less determined. Injuries and the flu had taken their toll of Coach Tom Cahill ' s starting line-up by kick-off time. Bernie Wall sustained a foot injury in practice and Bob AAohn aggravated a previous knee injury to knock out the first two signal callers. And to further darken the picture, both starting offen- sive tackles were injured during the course of the game and forced to the sidelines for the remainder of the after- noon. Lynn Moore accounted for the only tally for an Army team whom Lady Luck seemingly had deserted. 189 BOSTON COLLEGE 38-7 The Army football express, which was tem- porarily derailed by Texas A AA, Notre Dame, and Utah State, began moving at full steam again as it trounced the visitors from Boston 38-7. Both the running and passing attacks materialized for the Cadets as they picked up 569 yards on offense compared with the Eagles ' 235. Quarterback Bernie Wall looked unstoppable as he completed 13 of 21 passes for 209 yards and one touchdown. His favorite receivers proved to be Joe Albano, Mike Masciello, and a newcomer to the starting back- field, Ray Ritacco. The Big Black, Gray, and Gold were rolling again and looking mighty good at it! 190 AIR FORCE 6-13 Playing nationally ranked Air Force be- fore a record breaking AAichie Stadium crowd of over 42,000, the Army team played what was generally considered to be one of its best games of the season. The Cadets hit hard and out-performed the Falcons in almost every statistical depart- ment. For the greater part of the four quar- ters. Army ' s offensive and defensive ma- chines were well on their way to score an upset over favored Air Force. Those antici- pations were shot down, however, when a holding penalty against Army nullified a touchdown pass from Roger LeDoux to Mike Masciello and less than a minute later when Ernie Jennings returned a kickoff 96 yards to give Air Force a 13-6 victory. 191 OREGON 17-17 The Black Knights next travelled across the con- tinent for their encounter with the favored Oregon Webfoots. Team captain Lynn Moore broke four kickoff return records in a game that saw Army battle to its first tie since the 1965 Army-Navy 1-1 deadlock. The Army team was successful in stopping the Oregon running attack, but had less success in stopping the passing game. Ray Ritacco paced the Army rushers and John Brenner the defenders as he picked off two Duck passes and was named Defensive Back of the Week by the ECAC. Perhaps the biggest hero of the game, how- ever, was our dependable field goal kicker, Arden Jensen, who salvaged a tie for the Cadets by booting a 43 yard field goal with just eight seconds remaining in the contest. Army had again played well, but was forced to settle for a tie. 192 V PITTSBURGH 6-15 W ' It was another " Stop Lynn Moore Day " at AAichie Stadium as t ' e Pitt Panthers limited the record breaking halfback to 21 yards rushing in posting a 15-6 upset. Army moved into the locker room at halftime with a 6-0 lead on two field goals from the toe of Arden Jensen. Pitt, however, came out of the locker room and down the field to the one yard line where, after a touchdown and a missed extra point attempt, the score was deadlocked 6-6. With four minutes remaining in the game, Pitt intercepted an Army pass and went on to turn the Cadet miscue into a score. It was another exciting contest, but Army unfortunately emerged on the short end of the score. yx. ;» A.

Every man on the team could be cited for remark- able performances. From the moment of the opening kickoff, it was apparent that the sky-high Army team was not ro be denied victory on this day. Lynn Moore evoked strong images of Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis as he came forth wilh one of the outstanding individual efforts in Army football history. Moore was named national Back of the Week as he romped over, around, and through the Middies to pick up 206 yards in a record breaking 40 carries The Black Knight backs got tre- mendous blocking from such front line stalwarts as Bill Jackson, Ted Shadid, and Don DeCort as they blasted holes in the Middies ' flanks, middle, and secondary. In addition to the unstoppable Moore, Hank Andrzejczak carried for 49 yards and Ray Ritacco for 77 yards. On the receiving end for Army Joe Albano grabbed four passes for 41 yards. Bill Roden snagged two for 15 yards, and Mike Masciello caught two aerials for 12 yards and one touchdown. The Middies ' futility peaked in the final canto when they reached the Army one yard line on the second down. The Navy banged at the Army line three times in a row. But again the Army defense halted the touchdown minded Navy. Bob Bishop, Joe Neumann, Paul McDowell, and Byron Price had risen to the occasion when the chips were down. This was the fitting climax for a fine Army team to whom Fate had sometimes dealt a cruel hand during the season. In this game, the wares were laid out for inspection, and Army had them in good order. The Firsties were happy— it was their third victory over Navy in four years. . ' I ' • ax 200 the ' S ' einDavi!

MOORE -m y LYNN MOORE CAPTAIN ALL EAST BACK f 204 ' 33 Coach Palone ' s booters narrowly missed a seventh straight bid to the NCAA tournament. Although they played highly favored Navy to a 0-0 draw there were some notable highlights in the 3-1 win over Penn State and the 3-2 win over eleventh ranked Air Force Academy, in the early stages of the season Coach Palone had to call upon his years of experience to revamp a team that could not get its feet on the ground. After that it was clear sailing except for a heartbreaking loss to NYU that dimmed tournament hopes. The team made a fine effort in overcoming the lack of exper- ience that was supposed to indicate a rebuilding year. Hustlers like Jim Avery and Mike Minor are always a trademark of USMA ' s soccer teams. With a hard fought for 7-3-2 record Coach Palone can add another successful season to his already long ist. ?iaTwr. ;.

It started when captain Jim Kee, last year ' s Army-Navy meet winner, sprained his ankle on the first day of practice. The slack was taken up, how- ever, by the yearling trio of Bob Currar, Bill Henry, and Steve Fee. Army was undefeated when it went into the City to take on Manhattan and powerful St. Johns, who had won 21 straight. With Steve Fee running the third fast- est time in Cadet history. Army reached its goal in beating St. Johns. Manhattan came out of nowhere, however, to nip Army by a point, and Fee was ruining his already injured leg. He was never again to run in top form. It was that kind of a year. The injuries spread to other runners, including veterans Chris Clarke and Paul Garner, and Army dropped a meet to Cornell, again by a 1 -point score. The Navy meet was a rehash of the season, with Senior standout Nick Sebastian and captain elect Jeff McNally trying unsuccessfully to lead a limp- ing team to victory. 209 jJJJi? i : r id «»■.; . --.i.

FO BA LL Army ' s Little Rabble faced one of the toughest league schedules in recent history. In the first con- test it faced a strong, upset-minded Cornell team and after a hard fought game went down to a 24-14 loss. Nonetheless, the team rallied from this initial defeat under the guidance of Coach Tipton and mowed down four straight opponents, Penn, Columbia, Rutgers, and Princeton. In the final game of the season the Army 150 ' s were unable to break the jinx of the home field advantage which was afforded the Navy team. As usual the Army team succeeded in naming a number of players to the All-East Team. These included captain Jim Love- lace, offensive halfbacks, John Deason and Hugh MacDonald, offensive linemen, Jim Busack and Chip Lauckhardt, defensive linemen, and Kent Townsend, defensive halfback. 213 214 I ■ g £ . 215 216 218 219 VARSITY BASKETBALL OPPONENT ARA IY OPP.

Probably the best team effort of the season was turned in against a fine RAAC squad, as the Cadets came away with a big victory.

Beset by inexperience and a weak pitch- ing staff, the squad opened the year well but hit a slump in the fourth game. The Black Knights weren ' t assisted by the weather, either; several games were postponed due to cold or rain. To add to the woes. Army couldn ' t be assured of some of its contests because many of the Eastern schools were out on strike. On the bright side, however, it was a forma - tive as well as informative season for the Ca- dets. Coach Tipton can count on a powerful squad next season, with most of the first and second teams returning. Among the standouts this year were Tom Pyry, Freddy Zillian, Jimmy Murray, and Carl Peterson.

The season progressed until the fate of the national championship hinged on the final battle with arch-rival Navy. After leading 6-2, we ultimately succumbed to the Middies 8-7, ending a glorious but less than satisfying season.

Strong lacrosse teams such as this have provided many moments of joy for rabid lacrosse fans in the area as well as for a proud and grateful Corps of Cadets. We pre- pare now for our title next year. i VARSITY LACROSSE OPPONENT ARMY OPP. Yale at New Haven 16 8 Rutgers 18 L.I.A.C.

' ■■lA The powerful Army track team rolled to another highly successful season as a fit- ting conclusion to their 20th year under Coach Carlton Crowell. The Black Knights garnered a fine record of four dual victories, one loss, and victory in the Queens-lona Relays. This squad was laden with individual talent: Tony Dedmond in the sprints, George Forsythe in the 440, Kevin James in the pole vault, Bob Wallis in the javelin throw, and Jim Osman in the 880. These are only a few of the stars who enabled Army to defeat Navy for the fifth straight year. Because of the Cadets ' powerful f erform- ers, the result was never in doubt; only how badly we would beat them. At meet ' s end, we had humiliated Navy, 111-43, having scored over 100 points against them for the third consecutive year. It was a gratify- ing capstone to a brilliant season.

Under the guidance of President Kent Petersen, the Forum continued to grow in both size and stature. High- lights of the year included trips to IBM and the N.Y.C. area. BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE CLUB The Behavioral Science Club is an organization made up of those cadets interested in the psycho- logical and sociological aspects of the military. Dur- ing its third year, the club sponsored lectures and films concerning the psychological problems of the combat soldier. Several interesting and educational trips were taken to places that included the Bellview Psychiatric Hospital and the Mareno Institute, where cadets took part in a psychodrama. The club also visited the Naval Medical Research Center in Wash- ington, D. C, and the Special Warfare School at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. With its many activities the club provides a wide range of opportunities for those cadets who wish to learn more about the psychological aspects of military life. 264 MATH FORUM The purpose of the Mathematics Forum is to provide for its members an organization for the pursuit of excellence in Mathematics and Allied Sciences, outside of and in addition to required curriculum. The Forum ' s activities include open forum-type discussions, lectures by qualified individuals in the fields of mathematics and applied sciences, and attendance at lectures given at neighboring institutions by noted men of science. GERMAN CLUB The deutsch men of John Leckerling enjoyed an- other varied educational and fun-filled year. In- cluded with guest speakers were several trips to Washington, D. C. and New York City designed to increase the depth of the participants understanding of German. 265 MILITARY AFFAIRS CLUB The Military Affairs Club is one of tiie more active clubs at the Academy. A cadet can choose the area in which he is most interested from several different committees. Some of the activities of the club are: weapons demonstrations (including hands- on firing of a variety of military weapons), lectures, and trips to such places as the Aberdeen Proving Grounds and Washington, D. C. PORTUGUESE LANGUAGE CLUB The Portuguese Language Club was created to stimulate an interest in Portugal and in the other Portuguese speaking countries with emphasis on Brazil. This interest is fanned by the showing of films and by lectures given by visitors as well as our lecturer in residence, Lt. Colonel Motta of the Brazilian Army. The president of the club. Max Kelly, has added much to the discussions with his South American viewpoint. The club, under the guidance of Major Morton, Our OIC, has succeeded in fostering a deep interest in the Portuguese Lan- guage as well as in one of the most promising nations in South America. 266 Our nor W.C. and iisneffof »era! tojr ' Kepied ar FINE ARTS FORUM Our monthly trips this year have taken us to N.Y.C. and Connecticut. In addition the forum, in an effort to bring culture to West Point, sponsored several film fe stivals, a coffee house circuit and several touring artists and troupes. All v ere well accepted and were outstanding presentations. DEBATE COUNCIL AND FORUM For these men, blessed with the gift to gab, the Debate Council and Forum can be a truly reward- ing experience. The Council sponsors weekly de- bates and cosponsors SCUSA yearly. Everyone who is fortunate enough to become involved benefits tremendously from discussions with students of other institutions and schools of thought. 267 GLEE CLUB The ' 69- ' 70 season was our fullest and most ambitious under the tireless efforts of OIC, Major Finkenaur and the exuberance of Colonel Schemff. Our schedule took us over more territory than ever attempted by a Cadet Glee Club. We sang in Maine, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, and best of all Los Angeles, California. For three years o ur motto has been " No Fun With- out Music, No Music Without Fun " . . . When we meet again in future years, we ' ll sing to the memories of our Glee Club days. 268 269 V The Spanish language club has attempted during ™3 the 1969-1970 year to expand its activities to addi- j tional phases of the language, the countries that KJ speak it, and their culture. The club ' s meetings has been oriented more toward mass education or enlightenment. As an outstanding example, one guest lecturer presented films of Spain and its people. In addition the club visited the center for Inter-American Relations in New York City as well as the annual trip to Washington, D. C. to observe the Inter-American Defense Council and College. The Rocket Society is a " good deal " academic club. Through movies, guest lectures, and small rocket launchings by club members, we attempt to further interest in our space program and gain an insight into the complexity of space exploration. The highlights of the year included a February trip to Cape Kennedy, Florida, to observe the NASA complex, and a spring trip to the Marshall Flight Center at Huntsville, Alabama, to learn more about the Army ' s developments in missiles and space exploration. Under the leadership of President Dick Beahm, Vice President Bill Roedy, Secretary Mike Hobson and Custodian Jim Hayes, and Officer-in- Charge Major Joseph Petrolino, the club has a grow- ing membership of 120 rocketeers. ROCKET SOCIETY 270 SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS INFORMATION COUNCIL Tom Hall headed the Protestant contingent, while Frank Cannavo fathered the Catholic group. The extent of the service these young men perform need not be expounded upon. We only hope that the interest of the young men and others to follow them can be sustained. The Information Council works arm-in-arm with the PIO Office. They serve as spotters at athletic contests, write articles on events for news releases, and engage in other underground activities. Rich Rutledge absorbed the majority of the Council ' s benefits, but occasionally others sneaked some of the goodies from him. Ji WEST POINT CHANGING SCENES 272 S(!N[S The vast changes that have occurred since 1 July 1966, the entering day for the Class of ' 70, to graduation day on 3 June 1970 have changed the Acadenny both physically and mentally. The hole in the ground filled with steel beams is now the new barracks complex overlooking the Plain. The blazer is now acceptable weekend evening attire and the " ol " gym parking lot is now a swimming hole. Parades have progressed back to Company Mass but our " love " for them still remains. Inwardly and outwardly the Fourth Class System has changed, but the Tactical Department stands fast in its glorious tradition. These are some of the significant changes that have taken place, but goals and over-riding ideals remain the same. 273 THE POINTER It ' s doubtful that West Point ' s contribution to the free press will ever seriously rival other colleges publications, however, special considerations must be paid to the talent and imaginativeness of its staff. They provided the Corps not only with comic relief from the daily grind, but also with Christmas Cards, Calendars, and the like. kn t 1 its staff. comic relief " " asCardt DIALECTIC SOCIETY The Hundredth Night Show capped off a very successful year for the Dialectic Society. Several big name groups filled our auditoriums v ith the sounds that are sweeping the country. Special thanks and appreciation should be accorded the Club officers for arranging and promoting these shows. They are: Ed Clapp, Don Blakeslee, Butch Trammel, and Joe Wherle. 70, Bill ¥ ' 275 JUDO CLUB The Judo Club, being a Spring club sport, an- nually begins its season with the disadvantage of competing with only a 12-man team against op- ponents who may practice all year around. Over- coming these difficulties with sweat, raw guts, and the appropriate application of Plebe wrestling, the West Point Judo Club has amassed an enviable reputation on the East Coast. HANDBALL CLUB Jim Woloski and Mike Roark led the Handball Club to another very successful season. Trips took them to New York City, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. The Club hopes to get enough backing next year to send representatives to the Nationals. 276 KARATE Greg Graycas and his brick breakers proved too much for most of the masons in the area. They can be seen every afternoon in the South Boxing Room performing their oriental ritual. Anyone interested in learning the manly art is cordially invited to a rather uncordial workout. RUGBY 1970 v as Army ' s finest campaign yet. Led by Captain Rod Morgan, the team went undefeated in home competitions, including victories over the Air Force and Naval Academies. In addition, the team finished second in the Eastern Invitational Club Championships, and emerged as the East ' s top col- legiate team. The team would like to pass on the majority of the credit for its achievement to Major Hague, the team coach. 277 VOLLEYBALL The Volleyball Club enjoyed another fine season. This Spring they finished second in the Eastern Championships. Les Kaheleki and Chuck Sandy provided both the leadership and the talent to propel the team to its success. With a ffne nucleus of players returning to next year ' s squad, there is all the mak- ings for a great season, and possibly a trip to the Nationals. SCUBA Mitch Adams ' frogmen began their underwater research of the major bodies of water between Bull Pond and Key West, Florida. With Nels Johnson loosen- ing the purse-strings, the club continued to grow by purchasing new equipment to outfit the new members. One of the major programs the club is involved In is qualifying all those people who desire to become divers. 278 HOP COMMITTEE The Hop Committee plays an integral, yet often unthanked, part in cadet social life. Few of us take the time to consider the work and effort that goes into decorating, hiring bands, arranging mixers, both home and away, and then finding a bus driver courageous enough to take the left-overs back to their cages. WATER POLO Playing as a fall sport for the first time, the Water Polo Club once again registered a successful season. The highlight of the year was the Eastern Invita- tional Tournament hosted annually by West Point. Making the All-East Team for West Point were Pres- ident Dean Nickles and Third Classmen Mike Jackson and John Ferguson. The depth of this year ' s team should continue to provide West Point with great water polo. ANNUAL PUBLICATION OF THE CORPS OF CADETS UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY, WEST POINT, NEW YORK 10996 LARRY WALROD Circulation BOB NEWMAN 280 The Staff of the 1 970 HOWITZER is proud to present this addition to the long line of HOWIT- ZERS. This publication marks the end of four WALLY KAiNE-Ed for active, mennorable years for the Class of 1970. We have tried to capture some of the many ex- periences and moods that we have undergone in these last four years. I would like to express my deep personal thanks to the entire HOWITZER Staff; to Major Metzger, our Officer-in-Charge; to Dick LoPach- in, the publisher ' s representative; to Allen Bor- ack of Howitzer Studios; and to Jeff Lincoln, our hard working assistant photo editor. Also, I would like to thank the parents of the Class of 1 970 for their generous assistance. This book marks not only an end, but a be- ginning for the Class of 1970. Therefore, a fit- ting end to this beginning is our class motto: " Serve With Integrity " Consultant and Advisor DICK LOPACHIN 281 CHINESE CLUB Chinese has come to be a very big language in the world today, and the way things are going, .t ' s liable to become bigger. Bob Frank ' s leadership kept us from getting too proverbial, and also kept us busier than ever before. FRENCH CLUB Highlight of this year ' s French Club activities was a trip to Washington, D.C. A good deal of credit for the Club ' s prosperity and continued interest must be passed on to Major Armstrong and the Club of- ficers. The Club was entertained by a long list of guest lecturers and a vast repertoire of French films. 14 y RABBLE ROUSERS No matter what the score is, the Rabble Rouiers can always be counted on to get the Corps " up " . Whether on the field, putting up posters or acting out skits, the Rabble Rousers are always there to heighten the fervor of the " 12th man. " KDET $25,000 worth of new equipment replaced a worn out 6-volt battery and finally brought KDET to the Corps. Besides providing the best in musical entertainment, the radio station also broadcasted the best in Army sports. They also introduced FM radio and 24 hour broadcasting. Finally, the radio station sponsored numerous record hops and helped select top name entertainers for appearances at the Acad- emy. 283 . t I RING AND CREST COMMIHEE The Ring and Crest Committee is in charge of designing a class crest for its respective class. In addition, the Committee serves as a class committee until elections for class officers can be held Yearling year. Various social functions connected with the Class Ring, culminating with Ring Weekend, are the responsibility of the Ring and Crest Committee. The 1970 Committee is particularly proud of reinstitut- ing the practice of putting the class motto on the crest. 284 SPORT PARACHUTE CLUB The Sport Parachute Team enioyed one of its most successful seasons yet. The Black Knights virtually dominated every meet they entered, including the Eastern Team Championships. The end result was a trophy case full of team and individual rewards, and, with a fine nucleus returning next year, there should be more of the same. PISTOL Herb Roberts ' triggermen got more of the bill again this year than any other club In the nation. Once past the haircut inspections, they could be found in New York City or Fort Meade, Maryland. The club members feel it should be pointed out that they have one of the few self-supporting clubs presently in existence. t.. n charge of we class.

Trips took us as far East as Connecticut and as far West as Camp Buckner, provided the deuce and a half didn ' t break down en route. The club did very well for themselves winning virtually all competition against other clubs. OUTDOOR SPORTSMAN The Outdoor Sportsman ' s Club gives those interested an opportunity to continue their outdoor activities whiie here at the Academy. Composed of the Hunting, Fishing, and Woodsman ' s clubs, the Outdoor Sportsman ' s Club provides equipment as well as an opportunity to mix with officers and fel- low cadets with similar interests. The Hunting Club took two trips, one for deer and bear hunting and one for pheasant hunting. The Fishing Club took its annual trip to Massachusetts to enjoy excellent trout fishing. Entering in the intercollegiate Forestry contest held in the spring, the Woodsman ' s Club finished well. The prospect of the Club for next year look even better with the new creation of an Archery Club. 286 SKI CLUB AND SAFETY PATROL The Ski Club and Ski Safety Patrol perform an invaluable service on the slopes. In addition many gained ski instructor qualification through weekend trips to other slopes. Some also enjoy the pursuit of amateur skiing competition. CARDINAL NEWMAN FORUM The Cardinal Nev man Forum offers an oppor- tunity for interested cadets to participate in discus- sion groups throughout the year. The Forum supplies interesting speakers and movies for Catholic cadets. Recent years have brought ecumenical discussions in the Cloister Room of the Catholic Chapel where the Forum meets on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The three annual retreats provide ample opportunity for cadets of all classes to worship together and to develop Christian fellowship. 287 The Protestant Discussion Group and Chapel Forum had a very productive and active year. The two semi- annual retreats were well received as cadets of all classes got a chance to get away and discuss issues. The Spring retreat offered a new dimension as co lege students from other schools attended. Each Sun- day night between retreats the film series ONE- REACH-ONE stimulated thinking and faith as cadets viewed short dramas about life ' s problems and discussed them afterwards. BLACK KNIGHTS CHESS CLUB In September, the Black Knights organized a " Newcomers Tournament " to bring new members into the club. From October to January, the club participated in the Hudson Valley Chess League. The club began the second semester with the annual Brigade Open and finished with three weekend trips. The high-point of the year occurred when former U.S. Chess Champion Larry Evans presented a 25 board simultaneous exhibition. The club en- joyed an interesting and stimulating year. CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS ill Another of the many diversified religious groups represented here at West Point, this year ' s group was headed by Mike Ryan. They can be seen every morning after Reveille on their v ay to Building 720 and their secret hideaway to attend services. BAPTIST STUDENT UNION Highlight of our year was the June Week picnic. The BSU met weekly for lectures by visiting theolo- gians and intergroup discussions. Interspersed were several trips to the New York City area which were a pleasant escape for all. 289 GIRLS AT A EST POINT yyr0 V ... l»iUJi; ' te Hi Hk . . iMr; :■■■• . :.i -: ' J ij :Mi 290 m 291 SCOUTMASTER ' S COUNCIL The Council ' s entire year is pointed to the Scouting Jamboree they sponsor in the Spring at Lake Frederick. Throughout the year, they Invite hundreds of dens and troops and thousands of cub and boy scouts to West Point nearly every v eekend. Finally, if you are a member of the Arrow, you can attend a special dinner. CADET PUBLIC RELATIONS COUNCIL Every Sunday choirs of all denominations can be seen marching up the respective hills to their houses of worship. Participation is rewarded by frequent trips to such far away places as New York City and Miami. Whether the choirs be Jewish, Protestant or Catholic, their voices are a pleasant addition to the services. CHAPEL CHOIR AND ACOLYTES 293 3 ' g3g ' j ' 4?.fHV Firgfii?A:t?«iWil CLASS HISTORY A firm handshake, a solemn goodbye and the mood was set. Hard times were ahead, lonely times were ahead, but it would get better,- it couldn ' t get worse. Beast Barracks was no time to cry and no reason to laugh. " Beast " began where hell left off. The Challenge was there and it had to be met, the decision was yours and most saw it through. Beast was de- signed to test your body and soul, and it did. 296 Yet NCB was more than a test, it was a learning process. A new way of life in a new environ- ment (that you could never de- scribe) was taught to you. In one day, you learned how to salute, how to stand, how to march, how to talk, how to dress, how to " eat, " and how not to do a whole lot of other things. 298 d 299 As you progressed you learned that you were many things you had never before realized, such as ... a talented dancer, a very conservative dresser, a distance swimmer, and an all around athlete. 300 301 tb Of all the many new things you learned during NCB, the most important had to be pride. Pride in yourself, pride in your company, and pride in being a new class at West Point. fmm, 302 of t 303 Ill 304 Then Beast was over— you were no longer a New Cadet, you now played an active part in cadet life. You participated as a unit with the upper class, and people saw you as a part of the Corps of Cadets. Still an entire new learning process was to begin. The Thayer System began to take a new meaning and you learned to place a high value on little things called " tenths. " 306 Although the upper class outnumbered you 3 to 1, you learned that the plebes ran the Corps. Without the 4th Class, the Corps could not survive. You turned out at rallies, you broke the wire bindings on the N.Y. Times, you delivered laundry, you called the minutes, you delivered the mail, you closed the windows, and most of all, you were the backbone of the 12th man. You supported the Army Team to a surprising 8-2 season. You saw Coach Cahill named the Coach of the Year— and best of all, you cheered as you watched the Black Knights defeat the Navals 20-7. Plebe Parent Weekend brought a sigh of re- lief for both you and the upperclass. You let your necks out (remember bracing?) and really ran the Corps. You learned that with your newly developed Cadet skills you could impress almost anyone. You impressed your parents, you im- pressed your girl, you impressed your friends, and you were awfully glad you wouldn ' t have to go through with the same thing next year. p YEARLING You reported to Buckner with mixed emotions. Summer leave was over and it was time to learn the life of a soldier. For the first time you realized your status as an upperclassman. From all parts of the world you returned, and the Class of ' 70 set to work. You worked because you knew it was expected of you, but most of all you worked because you wanted to learn. During Beast you learned because you wanted to survive Beast, during Buckner you learned because you want to survive battle. As a West Point Officer, you are expected to be an officer of all arms, so no aspect of soldiering was left incomplete. 316 Infantry, engineers, artillery, armor, and sig- nal, they all played their part during " the best summer of your life. " During Infantry Week, you went where no wheels nor tracks could ever go. As an Engineer, you learned the En- gineers do more than build bridges. Fort Knox was a good change of pace. Armor pre- sented you with some interesting problems and challenges. Practical application was appreciated and many departed Ft. Knox believing that truly " tanks are wonderful things. " ( I 318 ' « " is and Artillery demonstrated why it is King of Battle. Once again practical applica- tion was appreciated, and fro nn the FDC to the loader you experienced it a Signal effectively demonstrated the true value of good communications. 320 321 There were more challenges.

You worked hard, but with your hard work you understood you would also play hard. aiace 327 Then came the Color Line Show and Il- lumination Weekend. After the Color Line Show, you all appreciated the fact that West Point is not known for its drama school. It was nonetheless an entertaining affair, and gave you all the opportunity to laugh at your classmates. 329 1 1 1 mk -i OvEkr i w 80 1 Kc vH !ls ra li i S m 330 p 331 Re-orgy week signified the end of the summer, and the return to Woo Poo and Year- ling academics. 332 .0 ' ' CO A Then there was Cow Year, a new mood was set, and you felt the impact of your new status in many different ways. Some went on AOT, others were fortunate enough to welcome a new Fourth Class to West Point. Whatever you did you real- ized for the first time you were responsi- ble for someone other than yourself. 334 Cow year gave you the opportunity to try some of the things you ' d always wanted to try. You got a chance to do your own thing. 336 SSUtjj. i always ' " ce to do 337 Cow year brought with it a new voca- bulary, with words such as nuc, thermo, econ, and of course, juice.

A stalwart on the athletic field, a spec-and-go hive, he excelled at cadet life with ease. With nothing to do during C.Q., Mitch channelled his interest and energy into pioneering an amazingly efficient Scuba Club, a benefit to all West Point. Several other clubs prospered via his keen organizational talent. With a cheery smile, gleam in one eye, a zoom lens in the other, brown boy over back, Mitch nonchalantly strode out through the gates— with nothing but success ahead of him.

An avid proponent of the sleep now— pay all night program, he immediately fits right in. Never one to walk when he could ride, he also did his part to preserve the spirit of the Cavalry.

Much of this questioning is being done by the members of your generation, ajid it is your generation which ultimately will have to provide most of the answers to those questions . I hope that as you look for those answers, you will remember the obligation of every educated man and woman to draw careful distinctions between those ideas which must be readjusted and those which should be pre- served. The fact that many accepted ways of thinking seem artificial and unjust does not warrant the rejection of all established standards. Nor should our proper re- spect for the past and our legitimate desire for stability lead us to defend thoughtlessly that which is outmoded and obsolete. Your challenge will be that of reconciling continuity and change, of giving new applications and fresh expressions to our traditional values — especially our concern for the dignity and integrity of every individual. By meeting that challenge you can make this time of rapid change a time of substantial growth and fulfillment — for your- selves, for your community and for your nation. As I extend to you my personal congratulations and best wishes, I look to the future with greater confidence be- cause I know of the exceptional qualifications you bring to the exceptional demands of our time. m ( : SulJMu. BILLIE JOSEPH MLtXANDER Crooksville, Ohio C-2 People may have been jesting when they called him the " Crooksville Flash, " but there was no joking when Joe settled down to his specialty, making the computer do what he wanted it to do. Always willing to help any- one out with their studies, Joe saved more than one of us with his timely review sessions before a Juice test. Joe was no stranger to the ath- letic fields either. He could always be counted on for that little extra when the team needed it most.

Arlington, Virginia D-2 George came to us from a long line of former grads, and as a plebe he was fortunate enough to request residence in his father ' s former dorm— the 12th division. George is prob- ably one of the hardest workers in our class, and this trait, coupled with Chris ' s inspiration, has earned him not only his stars, but the respect of us all.

During his four years Art built up an arsenal that could be compared to the museum ' s al- though the O. C. never managed to find it. Art ' s sincerity and loyalty made him a well- respected cadet.

After a brief setback called plebe year, he resumed his grand strategy and mastered what most cadets strive for— maximum results from minimal effort. Always ahead of the Dean, merely snickering at OPE, and never bothered by the TD, Tom brought an infectious bedevilment to all who met him.

Always active in the social life, Tom was never without a date or " groovin " at the hops.

But when it came to English or Social Sciences Bob could be found under the nearest brown boy. When not at West Point over the weekends, which was often. Bob could be found enhancing the cadet image and his own image as a member of the Cadet Glee Club.

He will always be remem- bered as a true friend, both confident and competent.

" His only real triumph over OPE came junior year with an intramural boxing championship. The quiet de- termination that sometimes showed through his easygoing personality saw him through more than one tight situation as a cadet. Al- though the afternoon often found him under his brown boy, the early morning hours just as often saw him solving the problems of the world with a classmate or two. Armor has found a willing recruit who will be outstanding wher- ever he goes. Class Committee 2, 1; Fine Arts Forum 3, 2, 1.

The English department may have sent him back a year, however John ' s friends will always remember him as a great writer of humor. Al- though he may not be popular with the " Blue Book, " John ' s popularity with his classmates more than makes up for this. John will aways be able to pick out the best of whatever comes his way.

Tim allows only things he finds worthy of thought to enter the realm of his mind. Wrestling, poetry, music, philosophy, and religion all pass through the filter. Money, military, sciences, and mathematics are re- jected. So, you see, if it seems that Tim was in a fog to you, then you simply didn ' t pass the filter test.

Con- cealed underneath that stoic countenance Paul ' s friends have found a remarkable character composed of a curious combination of gentle- ness, warmth, and wit that will never be for- gotten.

He brought with him a sincerity and friendliness that made him many lasting friends. His easy going manner extended to all aspects of cadet life. Al contributed his natural talents to both Corps Squad and Company Athletics. Academics were a formality in which he could excel at will. His " basic moves " will no doubt assure him of continued success after graduation.

Even listening to him wears us out, not to mention his cyclonic pace, which finally slows down about 0200 hours. This abnormally high input yields an impressive out- put, both academically and on the intramural field.

His interests at Woops were Juice, Cameras, Foreign cars, and his Brown Boy, not neccessarily in that order. Away from school, Bill ' s thoughts were of that certain girl.

His ex- ceptional grades belie his uncompromising policy of reaching the Brown Boy before the last even- ing inspection, and though an outspoken op- ponent of OPE, he was certainly one of its more successful foes.

RICHARD LEE GOODYEAR Carlisle, Pennsylvania D-4 Dick deserves all of the success that he has and will have. His two main concerns here were his brown boy and academics. It has not been determined with which he spent more time. Dick is one of the special type of men who seems to enjoy any environment, so he liked and enjoyed his life as a cadet. When Dick leaves, he will take pari of this place with him, and the world will be made better by his entrance into it. Without doubt, stars are in his eyes as well as on his collar.

John literally snaked his way through Buckner and culminated half of his career as a Cadet by dancing through many hearts (both the female and pasteboard models). When junior year rolled around John finally found his " place in the sun " as he strove for number one in the humanities and led the Falcons to their first Brigade Cham- pionship. Alas, John took up the eternal vigilance of honor as we headed down the primrose path to graduation. His final journey to undoubted success was made more pleasant by the ring, the woman, and the car.

After dis- playing his ability to triumph over academics during Plebe year, Chris turned toward those things which were not offered in the cur- riculum. Never one to let the constraints of West Point keep him from searching for his own goals, he was more likely to be found in the City than in the barracks, or reading Ayn Rand than studying Military Art. His room was often seen to take on the appearance of a post office as Chris rarely was satisfied with the charms of a single giri. In the years to come we can look for him in the upper reaches of high finance with his drive for self-satisfaction and his desire to get the job done right.

No other quote could better characterize H. Rap ' s tenure at West Point. While conforming more to the environs of the Fillmore East, than to New South Barracks, he was never one to let the system get him down. A firm believer in the incompatibility of the two terms " West Point " and " intelligence " he hopes the Army will prove more rational. Fine Arts Forum 4, 3, 2, 1; Outdoor Sportsmen ' s Club 1. JAMES AR LAND OSMAN, JR. Scottsdale, Arizona G— 4 Arriving from sunny Scottsdale, Arizona, jt didn ' t take Jim long to adjust to the cold and tedium of cadet life. Racing his way into West Point history, with enough Navy stars in track to make his own constellation, " Ozzie " was a winner from the word go. Thanks to track, he seldom had the pleasure of participating in drill and inspection and often had to be re- minded that an FD coat was for something other than Chapel. When he went on weekend, it looked like an ad from " Gentleman ' s Quarter- ly. " Sauve and always smiling, Jim ' s enjoyment of life contagiously spread to all his friends.

It was West Point ' s gain, though, as Paul added a lot to the Zoo— not only in character and in intramurals, but also in being an all-around good guy (except, of course, early in the morning). While never one to take anything too seriously, Paul made it through the long four years with relative ease.

San Bernardino, California B-4 When the group that has struggled together for four turbulent years finally disbands in June, each member can state one thing for certain- Bud Paulson was our friend. He was never concerned with the mundane side of Cadet life for one important reason. Bud will join the men in blue upon graduation and continue in the Air Force tradition which he loves so well. Neither the academic nor the tactical depart- ment plagued him, and Bud ' s solution to a diligent athletic workout consisted of one, well- executed " Brown Boy " pull-up. Whether West Point leaves its mark on him only time will tell, but his friendliness, dependability, and above all, sincerity, will be an indelible goal to be emulated by all who know him.

" Tar Beach " became his C.P. in the spring so he could get a jump on the ray, enabling him to concentrate on golf and girls all summer long.

KURT BERNHARDT REINEKE, JR. AAilford, Connecticut C-4 Kurt, or, as he is known to his close friends, Kirk, came to West Point with a drum stick in each hand. In spite of the fact that he was given a Union Gap uniform he was shocked to find out that they hadn ' t invited him to play for a dance. The shock was slow to wear off, but after his 999 hours of marching it dawned on him: " I ' m in the Army. " Armed with the Goats ' slogan, " A tenth pro is a tenth wasted, " Kurt made if through academics and is now very successfully out drumming ground in the Army.

Unlike most of us, Ron found inspiration early and unleashed his desire to excel from start to finish. He devoted his energies to tossing around academics and opposing wrestlers and finished on top of both. Able to surmount any obstacle OPE or academics could throw at him, Ron proved that late lights and a little extra umph are the keys to success. But we hope they let him sleep after reveille.

Although faced with an uphill fight in academics, Tom charged ferociously, dodging slide rules, computers, RDP ' s, and sadistic instructors.

Short-legged with a lot of guts, a comeback at Navy will attest to that. Wore number ' one ' on his cross country sweats and it takes one helluva man to say he ' s not. A sharp dresser with a pretty blonde named Mary, give him a letter a day, and a run to New- burgh now and then and he ' ll be as Irish as he wants to be.

The lack of beaches made it tough to carry on his favorite sport of swimming. He adjusted well, however, by taking up scuba diving and showing us his southern style of skiing. He never let academics or the system get in the way, especially when there are " good deals " to be found. Always one to spread his inside poop on these good deals, Dave made a favorable impression on all of us and should go far in his career. Cadet Chape!

" The Weasel " in the last four years has had many trials and tribulations in life and love and he has a story for every one. The name " Weasel " has no figurative connotation for Scott. Instead, he is the exact opposite of the dictionary meaning of the word. He has the ability to dip into his repertoire of sayings and come up with one for those times after Fluids and Juice to brighten the spirits of his classmates.

It seemed that everyone wanted him. For example, the academic department tried three times to get him, but he fought back each time. Likewise, he had his run-ins with O.P.E. and will be remembered throughout the Corps for having the only published H-Report on record. Paul had a great many talents: one was taking $150 short weekends halfway across the country (including a $50 cab fare from N.Y.C.). Another was his ability to blast out a Tarzan yell from the window— right above the O.C. But the crowning glory of his lively stay here was when he proved to be an accomplished landscape designer by transforming a certain room into a close resemblance of Churchill Downs.

Despite a strong aversion to ac- ademics he was a dilligent student throughout his cadet career. A mixture of Scandinavian stub- bornness and Scoftish independence was bound to bring him in conflict with the Tactical De- partment but in four years he never left any shoe leather on the area.

Being able to easily master any academic challenge put before him, Steve was often left with the time to pursue his two favorite hobbies, sleeping and girl charming. His fantastic propensity at both of these, as well as his impressive academic achievements, have earned him the respect and friendship of all of us.

Baton Rouge, Louisiana H-4 From Baton Rouge he came, fearful yet confident. During tiis stay at West Point, Vernon made a name for himself both as the scholar who pulled his way out of the " goat " sections and as a true friend of all with whom he associated. Try as he might, Vernon could not hide his light-hearted soul behind his orneriness. Always laughing and looking for a good time, Vernon was the hero of many H — 4 escapades. With his sincere desire and motivation, there is no doubt that Vernon will make an outstanding officer.

WILLIAM LANIER WALLIS Florala, Alabama D- It was a milestone in the history of West Point, when the bright-eyed boy from Alabama, known as the " Florala Kid, " passed through the South gate. Slow starting, Bill quickly found his academic footing and went on to set standards sti i unequaled in the fields of en- gineering. Always ready with a quick wit. Bill pushed on to new frontiers of social prowess, swooning many a fair maid. West Point will never forget the one affectionately known as Wall-eye.

EDWARD PATRICK WARD Hempstead, New York F-2 It seems ' ike Ed ' s happiness was directly proportional to the cube of his distance away from school; and for that reason, he ranked high in the class for the number of times his name appeared in the daily bulletin ' s trip sec- tions. When physical escape was impossible, Ed pursued the hedonistic pleasures of the ski slope or the philosophical delights of the brown boy, dreaming of future Alpine adventures or excursions through Europe in his Jaguar.

THOMAS GEORGE WALKER Naugatuck, Connecticut E-1 ==fr— Upon entering the Academy Tommy immedi- ately set out to establish his reputation for excellence. His enthusiasm as a cadet never diminished throughout his stay, late lights were as routine to Tom as shining his shoes. His ef- forts paid off as he conquered the academic departments and earned a spot on the Brigade championship boxing team. His capacity for hard vyork and his determination to succeed wi ' l stand him in good stead later on. He will be a credit to the Army just as he was a credit to West Point.

Wally is a cool headed guy with a uniquely sharp sense of humor and a helping hand for everyone. He had the ability to get along great with all and could be depended upon as a man for all oc- casions, whether a serious talk, a hand in aca- demics, a round on the friendly fields of strife, or e good laugh.

He fought hard, though, and overcame this obstacle as v eW as all other obstacles he encountered as a cadet. A guy who won ' t settle for being second best, Steve is sure to accomplish anything he sets out to do. Sincere, yet humorous at times, energetic, yet lazy at times, Steve could always be counted on for his straightforwardness. Aways willing to help when he was most needed, Steve was a true friend indeed. THOAAAS WILLIAM WEAVER Evanston, Illinois F-1 A year at the University of Illinois convinced Weaves that West Point was for him. A stand- out in intramurals, he helped the Falcons to numerous victories on the fields of friendly strife. An old salt at heart, Tom sacrificed a week of summer leave to sail the Atlantic on the U.S.C.G.S. Eagle. Perpetually up on aca- demics, it is rumored he completed studying for firstie finals by March of Cow year. A lways ready to give his mates the poop. Weaves saved many of us from disaster at the hands of Ranger Juice and other tenth stealing villains. Tom ' s determination and sincerity cannot fail to bring success to his career.

A true son of the Army, Bill overlooked several college offers to eagerly lead the ranks of his fifth generation heritage and continue the family tradition of interesting interpretations of cadet regulations. Never guilty of overworking, he approached all problems with the cost-effediveness method as proved by his R.D. = F.D. theory and this final tally, computer 126-Weese O.

Whether applying himself to a team effort as a sprinter on the track squad, or whether rifling a golf- ball down the fairway. Bill is known to have the situation well in hand.

GARY GENE WILKINS Fort Lauderdale, Florida F-1 Joining the class of 1970 for a second Third Class year at the " request " of the English Department, Gary became the very model of the man who can take everything in stride. A true son of the Sunshine State, he sported an all-year tan and made the most of every leave. Hard-working and yet easy-going, he adjusted to and made the best of every situation; his drive and sharp mind brought him out of the class cellar, but he always had time for full- fledged pursuit of more important things- warm women and cold Bud.

It has been written that the ride you experience in the Renault 16 " can be compared only to that oftheMercedes, Rolls, or Citroen. " Colin Chapman chose the engine of the Renault 16 for his Lotus Europa. And the quietness of the Renault 16 (which goes for a mere $2,395+) comes only in cars costing thou- sands more. Someone is sleeping in Detroit. Road Test is an impartial maga- zine. At the time of this writing, it did not even take advertising. After exhaustive tests on the Renault 16, Road Test wound up suggesting that " all the automotive designers in Detroit be ordered to spend two weeks behind the wheel of this car in the hopes that their dormant imaginations might be sparked to life. " Thank you. Road Test. A textbook for Britain. Stirling Moss has written: " There is no doubt that the Renault 16 is the most intelligently engineered automobile I have ever encountered and I think that each British motor- car manufacturer would do well to purchase one just to see how it is put together. " The Renault 16 happily consents to offering a course in Renault 16. Where yve made our points. Needless to say, our car has impressed a lot of people. We ' d like to tell you why. Before our car was a car, it was a project. It was designed and built from scratch. Like the factory that makes it. So we didn ' t build a new car around old parts. For better traction and superior road handling, the Renault 16 has front wheel drive with engine weight over the drive wheels. Its engine gets a miserly 30 miles per gallon. But it does an honorable 93 mph, top speed. Its unique 4-wheeI independent suspension system has already put the 16 ' s ride in a league with the Rolls Royce ' s. The seats in the 16 were designed by a doctor and will challenge the comfort of any easy chair. They too have been compared with the Rolls ' . Even more points. Disc brakes resist fade. Our front wheel disc brakes " will stop you in a straight line instead of the next lane. Seven different seating arrange- ments give the Renault 16 perhaps the most versatile interior you can drive. It can be a plush sedan, a roomy wagon, or anything in between. It ' s got a sealed cooling system that doesn ' t overheat and virtually eliminates adding antifreeze. And finally, the sound of a Renault 16 running is very close to silence. Extracurricular reading. If any information still stands be- tween you and a Renault 16, you can have Road Test ' s full report on it by sending in the coupon below. But if you ' ve read this far, we suspect you ' re at least ready for a test drive. =-:-- DIAMOND MOTORS 100 Sylvan Avenue. Englcwood Cliffs.

And called his wife to tell her he ' d be home late. But that man didn ' t wear his seat belt. So he upped his chances of dying by 5 to 1. And he didn ' t beat his own odds. Now, we all know what a nuisance it is to buckle a seat belt. It takes from 3 to 10 seconds. Who ' s got that kind of time to waste? But isn ' t it funny how we all have time to buckle our seat belts on a plane the minute the sign flashes ' It ' s especially funny when you consider the fact that, last year, deaths in U S airline crashes added up to only 158 people While deaths in U S- car crashes added up to over 56,000 people. Isn ' t that an interesting com pari when you wear a seat belt The fact is. that 8.000 to 10,000 extra lives a year could be saved it everybody wore their seat belts all the time (Not to mention the number of faces that could be saved. Or the number of livers.
