L ' f : The traditions and heritage of West Point are fundamental and will live with us all our lives and for eternity. Ik I 1SS Thayer ' The Father of The Military Academy " Appointed Superintendent in 1817 He demanded habits of mental dis- every course. Classroom sections Sylvanus Thayer introduced endur- cipline and maintained standards were limited to from ten to four- ing innovations many of which are of scholarship and regular study, teen members, still in effect today. Every cadet was required to pass The Thayer System J y — K Colonel Thayer administered The United States Military Academy with two guiding principles- strict adherence to the rule of discipline and subordination and advance- ment or promotion according to merit. Thayer ' s disciplinary measures are the basis of those in use today as are his aims and goals. He demand- ed of the cadets excellence of character and excellence of know- ledge. To supervise their military training he appointed the first Com- mandant of Cadets. Knowing the country ' s need for engineers, he made civil engineering the core of the curriculum. His genius placed The United States Military Academy as an institution of learn- ing on the eminence it has main- tained ever since. Thayer ' s most important contribution was to raise the technical and ethical standards of an army officer from vocational skills that could be acquired by practice to that of a person of edu- cation and training. n West Point is an American monument immortalized by the fortress effect of its massive Gothic buildings. 13 J 14 The imposing gray Cadet Chapel, built into the hillside overlooking the Plain, dominates the Academy landscape . . .

Men of West Point 21 With the passing of each day our attitudes, emotions, conflicts fuse us into a common struggle for existence. " B i y JHwRWWfe " The real difference between men is energy- a strong will, a settled purpose and invincible determination can accomplish anything. West Point is tough, providing a framework in which to develop, to perform effectively as a member of the military team 27 Certain of our true identity we look to the challenge of the future with confidence, anticipation, ambition and intense desire to achieve.

Lascelic 98 lEarly in the fall of 1977, a group of Cows were thrown together by the most unusual set of circum- jstanccs. On the outside it appeared that A-1 ' 79 was just another class to move into stately Persh- ing Manor. Soon it became apparent that the boys from Alpha House had arrived — things would never be the same. In ' 77, the 1st Regimental Tactical Officers made an assault on Pershing Manor. The boys held them ' off, sustaining only a few casualties: a minor slug here, a few demerits there. Later, the Tac estab- lished an LP OP on the 3rd Floor. It took until Fall of the next year to drive the Observation down ito the 1st Floor. Many members of Alpha House have brought honor to themselves in this battle.

The Class of 1979 in Chargin ' Charlie One came together after the shuffle which preceded our Cow year. It was only a short period of time before we were united as a group and working toward a com- mon goal — Graduation. In the four years from 1976-1979 we saw many changes. The phrase we probably heard the most was " We are the last class to . . . " If our four years at West Point taught us nothing else, we learned 1) to be flexible and accept change, and 2) to be receptive to the needs of not only the mission but also the men. As the years pass on, those times we once considered bitter will mellow with age and become war stories from the " Old Corps. " Many friendships started here will carry over into the Army and years after. It will someday be us who are reunited on The Plain by Sylvanus Thayer ' s statue and honored as Grads who have served themselves and their country well. 104 Second Class First Row: B.

That ' s the way that first regiment ' s Dragoons spent the year: close in body as well as spirit. The company brought a fine collection of activities and in- jtercsts to Old South and the Corps at large .... making D Company truly one of the finest. Living I there above the historic sobriety of Grant Hall dwelled a great crowd in pursuit of excellence. They fell from the sky, they sailed the waters, they blocked for that key touchdown, they saved the key goal, they sang on stage and in the chapels as well, they fenced with finesse, they partied, and they paid .... via the Area. Everyone offered his contribution towards building a life in the Acade my i " Slums " ; sometimes no water, sometimes no heat, always the many-legged creatures sharing your room .... all a part of the West Point experience.

Willey I-l From the farthest reaches of the global microcosm we came - some were local boys from First Regi- ment who were used to the heat; others arrived from the vast temperate expanse of the middle regiments. Still others trekked from the cold, distant Fourth Regiment of the North Area by dog- sled and BP cart - to adjust to a new climate. The computer craftily decided that somehow, for some unknown reason, the panel of experts shown here could work in the same town. Like cor- porate executives, we found ourselves thrown together to work together and " drive on with the mission at hand. " (missions not at hand included TV, ping pong, and Friday night parties.) j Nevertheless, we drove on, took charge, passed in review, and helped make Company 1-1 the 1 successful outfit it is today, while still maintaining our sacred individuality in our own subtle ways.

Ratfiburn, T. Durham From every part of the country came the members of Animal House ' 79. They really messed up on the reshuffle because we liked each other immediately. For two years we all played, partied, laugh- ed, fought, and partied. " Roscoe ' s Raiders " were always standing tall as Angel can well attest. Hinch (The Rebel), Marty, and Durk swam an upstream battle against the new regs. Lenny finally took an authorized weekend. Terry kept us in tunc from his studio, while Tom L. shot eizimuths off trees. T.D. (Copenhagen Man) and Mac liked school so much they stayed around during the sum- mer, but Lou kept them well supplied. " Disco Don " was gone and so were mid-period racks. The " Grips " beat the " Federation " by default. Mike, J. P., Bob, and Danny lost 55 Buffet Points on staff but quickly regained them on return. In sports Schloss was hooped while Pat F. made " A Squad " Grant Hall. Kenny wrestled us to Brigade Champs. Don will be remembered for " This is the last time people! " Pat commanded the model brigade. Jose added a touch of foreign class to the Animal House. Everyone will remember California Joe and Manfred Man as well as Woody ' s study uniform but, above all, A-2 ' 79 will be remembered for cauliflower ears. A-2 129 NIM4i INIMAL HOUSE ■IS ii 131 o.

West Point protected us like a Mother, and we came to know TAC McGoo as our Father. All of us were brothers without sisters, as we grew up in Delta house. Some thought of new ways to learn about maturity. We had the apathetic one who found responsibility in a place of honor; we learned from the lazy one who blazed a trail in the social wilderness of the co-ed Corps; and we ' ll all soon understand the courage of the quiet one who turned from the Promised Land before June in search of a different truth. We think we all had it under control; it was no doubt a ma- turity of our own design. Only the mother and father knew that time was our real teacher. We had time to frolic in our D-2 playground, but time also showed us how to weigh the world and its wis- dom. While the days continue to fly, the boys who joined the Top of The Line spread their wings as the men of ' 79. Fourth Class First Row: K. Lamotte, H. Harlow. R Kimmey, S. Greene, D, Gillette, A.

Mo convinced us all to buy stock in Drano, while Gram- pa lined up a job with Shell. Meanwhile, at Gronk, Fonz wrestled a tree, P.J. scrummed a zinger while Boz hovered. If Van was anything, he was engaged. We never figured out who was shorter. Dibber or Keithino. Cecilino (Kee-Kce) was tutoring Thermo and Gibbino bored us with his max comedy ideas. Knappino and Dluhino were always sweating out some homework. Carnz (Airborne) always had his nose in everything. Littel-Dog was burning a Bean or in the Gym. Streffer-Dog-Dog was really from Walla-Walla. Slaughino was a big influence. G.S. was never engaged, but the Beans loved him. Jimbo (1 say, 1 say . . . Boy!) was always heard. Wigino wrote a letter to the Dean that al- most got him run out. For Underdog, see 1-2. Doc Wilson taught us to run, while Millerino remained pessimistic. Ralph treasured his Swiss bank account.

Wiese This year F-2 ' s first class gave the Corps a starting center fielder, a starting placekicker, a starting Judo competitor and a starting Regimental Commander. We came together as a result of the last class-wide scramble, and it took awhile for us to get to know one another. But by the time wc were wearing our rings, we had formed many life-long friendships, and soon all twenty-four of us were guiding the Fightin ' Fox through our firstie year. How can you go wrong when you have a guy in the company named Steve Martin? Yes, we could be wild and crazy, but wc also applied ourselves with all of our energy to the challenges that awaited us at every turn. We ' ll always remember Kree- bo and Jody in the " ghetto, " and also Monk, J. J., Zone, Wild Bill. Pollywog. and Woolton. And ' 82 will always remember Jim, Chris, and the Gardener Beaner. George, Joe, Tom, Marty, Thad. Mike, Fred, and Ross rounded out a gang " which will live in infamy " in the hearts of us all. 144 Second Class First Row: K. Gustafson. K. Mishkel, M. Yeshnik. J.

In the fall of 1977 a group of rowdy Cows climbed to the 6th floor of the Hotel Central Barracks to check into Company G-2. JT, SweenI, FM22-Buhl, Hayes, and Dunk all played against the Dean ' s team in football and lost. Collins, Mark and JT gained revenge for the goats by beating the Dean in Summer School. By the end of Cow year the G-2 gator had become a goat. Everyone had his own style. Peter and Forrest flamed, Paul was mellow and Bruci was Semi-Strac. O.B. and Chris got stripes while Lcs had to fight to get his name spelled right. Uppy, Hages, Jimmy and Pete could al- ways be found in Grant Hall. Rich Hughes was sent to Brigade Staff to help study conditions. Firstie year brought some new wrinkles, namely cars. Jeff, Bruci, Les, JT, Bouch and Frank all had Celicas; Bouch ' s came with reclining seats, while Franks came complete with turret and command- ers cupola. Schultze ' s living with his speakers, Collins is already hitched - to Roger. No woman will ever be able to handle Buschman. So there they are, America ' s best, the boys of G-2. Without a doubt, they are one of the most fun- loving, spontaneous and close groups ever to come to West Point. They are truly " Top of the Line. " MAJ Lawrence F. Cousins Fourth Class First Row: B.

Some were different from others, others different from all, but they became Brothers for two years. In that short time, J.D. kept on fluffing up his mop with the T-top, Rod brought the finest in tunes to our Highland Home, Plug captained the Styx crew, and Stump was a big stud in a small man ' s game. Squarehead kept tradition in old ' 34. Drugs ' dedication inspired us all and Smasher rang out a Formula. Borno hit another bull. Slims flipped on another Van Halen tunc. Head was a sure Rush. Undy contin- ued to - amaze. Bert stopped at Staff enroute to Rhodes. Willy was preppy in wish- bone tweed, while D.J. and Davey T. provided that Florida spirit we all would need. Clancy portrayed that Dad-like image. Thad rode the midnight train to Mizzou, and Butts gave the diamond we all knew. Gator was our moral leader and Ron kept true as the juice poop feeder. In Doak was the strength of a New Mexico oak. Snyd held true and the friendly haze, E.P. provided laughs throughout the days. Someday Rick would fine the Babe. When Jake did something, it was all that he gave. We sure hope Kypes had a friendly stay, George kept on truckin ' day after day. First time Fred shepherded this unruly bunch his house wish would come true, he had a hunch. So it was this way that the story of the Happy Men would be; too bad it was in such brevity.

Rhome A-3 From the farthest corners of the Corps we came, in that fall of ' 77. The atheletes, the hives, the goats, and maybe a derelict or two. We united our awesome powers to accomplish our mighty military mission, that of making A-3 a better place to be. Our path was fraught with dangers, and the most fiendish of all was (shudder) Ronnie S. and his sidekick, the little Napoleon from whom we all learned a great deal. We lost many weekends and wore out many soles in our crusade. Yet finally, despite the casualties suffered at the Battle of Short Overcoats, we emerged victorious. The forces of the Dean and DPE laid in wait at every turn, and the merciless sword of Maj. R. was ever at out weekends, but we kept the company intact. Our spirit and will were undaunted; our strength always a surprise to the enemy. With leader- ship, athletic ability, intelligence, united by our friendship, we made A-3 not simply a better place to be, but the only place to be. First Class First Row: J Keefe.

Brought together from all parts of the Corps, we became the proud " Fighting Cocks. " Papoose kept us all in line (he ' s the biggest). The General commanded the calculators while I ' R fixed them. The Ketchup Kid kept Heinz in business Wally chewed for the sake of Dixie and Mick guarded the keg. Jeff played golf because his spiked shoes punctured volleyballs. Ridd- ler finally made poster chile for Obesity Weekly and Rowt married Lucifer. Billo thought it was great but Mark just hived out. So what ' s in the future? Mex will own the Firstie Club and Zener will design a diode. Carlie will invent a clock (the hands will be faster then he be late) and B.K. will buy land by the river while " Big Bob " buys Colorado. Derango will run a disco or perhaps just run, while Mary will ride (Trans Am style). Airborne Ranger won ' t rush into things until he finds a harder way to do it and Star Man will patent an unbreakable mug. Oh, but yes, Mac will still be the; " schanke " and Bob will still be a Raider, Phil? Still taking weekends and J.T.? Still proving the Dean wrong, Kotch? Catching the BIG one.

Well anyway, way back when, a cloud of dust lifted and 25 young men walked through the " Hallowed Gates " of Woo Poo. After two years of aimless meandering we came together to form what we initially expected to be an excellent Beer-Ball team. However, too much practice time was spent at Murray ' s and not enough on the fields of strife. The key threats to our eventful first year were harrowing encounters and narrow escapes with the institution ' s evaluations. Also, we suffered one crushing blow to the mainstay of our infamous F.Y.B. games, D.C. himself. Despite this setback, the " Boys " were able to carry on and rise from the ranks of the " L.D. ' s " to those of the " D.G.P. ' s " Some chose the moral route and succumbed to the glitter of diamonds in a female ' s eyes; while the rest of us chose :to bestow honor on them in aiding the memory of such a momentous event. Though a few seemed elusive due to " studly events, " we consolidated around the tube with Beebo in hand to watch The Hulk. " Despite the circumstances of our acquaintance and our diverse (perverse??) per- sonalities, we were still able to form a close knit group of " wild and crazy guys. " For we are the men of D-3.

A computer turned loose a terrifying thing, and people wonder why we fear " Juice. " Look- ' ing back, though, we handled the shuffle fairly well. We quickly united as a class and charged ahead to meet the challenges of upperclass life. Ric worked on walking through doorways, Aust elevated belligerence to an art form and Bill, Frank, B, J.B. and Chip hid behind stripes for a semester. Mork and Mindy was the hit of the year. If it was preempted, we ' d just go talk to Rob for a while. For many of us, life revolved around the car. " Schools " tried to keep his in one piece, Greg and Shep got that silver gleam in the eye and outspent the Pentagon on their " Vettes. " Scotty and Carl spent as much time under their cars as in them. Back in the company, Johnny K. clung to his " inferno " ways and Spills, after a conversion during the summer of ' 78, began to smoke ' em a little himself. Capper, Go-Go, J.D., and Rue formed the NCO Club and tested the yield strength of John Spiller ' s bed. Tony T. calmed these wierdos down and Pipes tried to make them form straight lines. Boomer took care of the company staff, but the real guidance came from the three wise (old) men: Ranger Martin, Ernie from the land of Oz, and the venerable Mike Lemmon ■ a motley crew but a good one.

John (V.S.) didn ' t spend much time with the company, being at Coast Guard and on Brigade staff. Schick led us through the first semester. Big Joe and Bob " Ravolta " spent most of their time on the football field. Nieds was our token Star Man. Buck and Arnold spent their time wrestling and beating up on cows. Ross wrestled and managed Lacrosse. The Southern contingent was represented by Chuck and BeBes, who was the official Dayroom Commandant. Halvy is still fighting off the girls. " The Beaner ' s Bud " didn ' t want to go on leave because there were no plebes at home. Tids and Bill stayed in the company all four years. Dad still has his collection of darts and water pistols. We almost got Wes ' head out from under the hood of his car in time for graduation. O.J. (Pumping Iron) is still flexing. Mark is shooting for the Stars and will reach them if he keeps growing. Marty got over as Bn XO and spent his free time at judo. Neubs attempted to spend all of 1st semester on room confinement. Thanks, Fran, for quitting football to coach intra- murals.

A better bunch of guys would be hard to find. From the beginning we were determined to do it right, and we did! We were more than just company-mates; we quickly became close friends. We lived, worked, and partied together. We set high goals for ourselves and attained them with enthusiasm. For us, G-3 consisted of late night talks . . . ' gammon games . . . tail-gates . . . Ike Hall as cows . . . classes . . . FCP ' S . . . Charlie ' s and Elie ' s . . . TEE poop sessions . . . Tom . . . Spaghetti Night . . . the Dayroom . . . classes . . . skating party . . .

Schmidt Times were hard in the Great Shuffle of ' 77. Twenty-seven young men, soldiers and world travelers all, were thrown together in an organization called Co. H-3. To everyone ' s surprise, each was dedicated to the proposition, " if you only go around once in life, you might as well grab for all the gusto you can get. " And so, it turned out that the Great Shuffle was a Great Success. What were they looking at? Why did they attend weeknight basketball games together? Or throw wild parties? Or have four " Starmen " and fourteen men on the Dean ' s List? The answer to these and many other questions is gusto. Yes, my friends, gusto. Now they have graduated and been shuffled once more.

And, " Mountain-Goat " Cooper and Wiener, winner of the steam tunnel purple heart! Horton hatched the egg, and Brun- didge hatched a football. Hooper followed the fleet-footed all the way to the finish-line. Farmer is still trying to control " Monster Man " Alimpich. Anybody see Ky;!er ' s TV Or Marvicci ' s Contracts! How about a car for Gillette? We ' ll never forget Rocke who co-authored (with I Company) a brand new parade manual. Let us always remember our sharpshooter. Bo Underwood.

C King Boz, Spuds, Wacky, and Ike are only a few of the names which will bring back mem- ories of good times to the Firsties of Buffalo Four. Possibly it ' s all because, as Jim Smith might say, " We do it on the hoof! " Besides, where could you find a company with a pink panther and a wino in the chain-of-command? What ' s more, if you had visited the " Great Plains " of E-Wing you might have heard elephants trumpeting in the hallways, taken your pick of the most exotic varieties of chewing tobacco, or if you were lucky, talked " trash " with the world ' s most unappreciated ladies ' man. That is, of course, unless you were a Plebe: they were usually greeted by the Fourth Class System Commissar, But B4 had room for everyone to set chips down, whether you were from Paterson NJ; Piquo, OH; Frederick, MD; or even West Point, why, we even tolerated two starmen who were half " Zoomie. " And who could forget a CO who turned down Otter ' s part in " Animal House " just to lead us on the plains of friendly strife. I guess it shows that we were all " Whole Buffaloes, " especially when you consider those who played hockey, golf, ISO ' s, and even team handball. But beyond that, we still blazed new trails, such as with Jay ' s unique paperback collection, Keith ' s 200 hours, or even worse, two striper adjutants. Finally, any odd sort could relate to the Maggots (as they called themselves), because like everyone else in B4 they found no cause for alarm, took it ... as it came, and drove on. Sure, we all were a little different, but we were still Buffaloes, or as Bish would say, " We were into it! " B-4 MAJ Thomas R.

They are modest about it though - just ask them: " YEEEE- HAAAH!!! " In general, they make up quite a motley crew, with a wide assortment of unique points of interest. Some have ideals as high as the Texas sky, others as high as the steps of Grant Hall, and an elite few (with a little difficulty) can scale the dizzying heights of a golden flagon of Jack Daniels. Look at those smiling faces - you might think only a mother could love them - trained killers all. Yet, some have managed to overcome this handicap, as the June wedding list will attest. Discomania at the Club every Saturday night is another indi- cation that there are still sympathetic girls around. There are athletes as well as lovers. Players who care little for thinking and players who are just incapable of thought. Even a few who can think ra ther well ... All assembled here from across our vast nation, not to mention one from a nation that most of the rest can ' t even pronounce. From the snows of Wisconsin, to the Florida Sun, to those two with the switchbaldes from New York City ... All have banded together for that last great rodeo in Michie on the seventh of June. Then, in that last stampede, they will be gone - scattered across the plains. But those memories that accompanied them along the whole hot and dusty length of their trail will last forever .

Like the Yankees, Company F-4 has a stack team, and like Reggie, it ' s tough to be modest when you ' re great. Let ' s talk academics. Schultz leads both leagues with a whopping 4.14 average, followed MacDonald, McGraw, Humphrey, Whittey, Doan and O ' Neal. With a lineup like that, it seen likely that the Frogs will be tough offensively. Let ' s talk athletics. Wieland has won or has been up for Golden Gloves all four years. If he ' s nc the best, he ' s close to it. Some other members of the team which are consistent batters incluc Dalzell, Shuber, Sauer, Oates, Myers, Panzarella, Nizolak, Owens and Orler. Now, let ' s talk parties. Unquestionably, at the top with over 200 to his record is Lockne followed closely by Dobbin with a not so modest 175. Every team has to have its Mascots. We have gorillas - McCann and Yancey. The people that stand watch (at the position of attention) to protect our team from the fans a two of the toughest guards in the conference, Helis and Earner. And no one messes around with our favorite umpire, Semonite. Driving in those needed home runs are the three most sought after DH ' s in the league: Walte Wackerman, and DeBenedictis. The management is " sly, " sometimes cunning. No one knows how Maj. Sylvester finnagled h way into leading such a contender, but he has and is on his way to glory. This team looks tough, and although some may want to retire in ' 79, all contracts will be extende for another five years. 206 II Maj Louis A. Sylvester Second Class First Row: C. Lemon, B. Meikle.

It ' s almost impossible to recount our two years together in the condominiums of the 46th, 47th and 48th divisions. We boys of G, a true melting pot with a never-to-be-reproduced recipe, were drawn from the varied cracks and crevices of the Corps, molded into a united class which defied description, we stood fast against the ravages of cow " juice " and the Air Force way. Those fond memories of life in Gup Four cannot all be recounted here. Let it be sufficient to say we will not soon forget those enoyable hours of movie , TV guard. Grant Hall guard, tempered by an occasional evening of academic endeavors. And now that the light is so clear, some of us know where we were, a very few know where we are, but who knows where we arc going. Woe be unto these lads, woe be unto the Army . . .

The Scuba Club is interested in presenting club members with as many opportunities to dive as possible. This is done by con- ducting dives every week at different dive sites on the West Point Reservation. In addition to these regular dives the club also sponsors off-post dives. These dives take place at some of the East Coast ' s better dive sites, such as Black Island, Hessian Lake, and Lake Mohonk. In addition, the club has an instructor group whose task is to train individuals in the art of scuba diving. i .» alUMMIHil ISSEiPi The Ski Club is one of the Corps ' largest clubs. It provides its members with many chances for great skiing both at West Point Victor Constant Ski Slope and at other more challenging areas in the North- east. The year ' s activities included trips to the National Ski Show, Hunter Moun- tain, Belleayre, and Jiminy Peak. The Ski Club also helped sponsor the Second An- nual Ski Swap and the Spring Ski Car- nival. Two of the integral groups of the Ski Club include the Ski Patrol and the Ski Instructor Group. The Ski Instructors, con- sisting of thirty qualified amateur ski in- structors, helped improve the skiing ability of many cadets and post personnel with their expert instruction. The thirty members of the Ski Patrol kept the slopes of Victor Constant safe, after receiving many honors of first-aid and rescue in- struction. Supported by these two groups the Ski Club has had a very successful year. : i V v ' !l " ' Ski Club o:- ' ' Sport Parachute Club The Sport Parachute Club and Team exist to allow a cadet to pursue all aspects of the sport of " skydiving. " As a military club it teaches the cadet to function in a very critical environment while providing the highest degree of satisfaction and en- joyment. Freefall parachuting is not for everyone, but to those who thrive on chal- lenge it provides a viable outlet to tax courage and define inner limits of freedom. This type of training in the military exists only in the form of High-Altitude-Low- Opening (HALO) jumps, which has a very competitive entrance requirement. The United States Military Academy has the complete facilities to instruct, equip, and jump a willing parachutist in his drive to develop himself to his maximum poten- tial.

The Trap and Skeet Club provides cadets an opportunity to learn how to shoot clay targets as well as fielding a highly suc- cessful intercollegiate shooting team. The Trap and Skeet Team regularly partici- pates in the Eastern Collegiate Champion- ships and the National Intercollegiate Championships in the Spring. The Club shoots daily in the Spring at the skeet and trap range at Camp Buckner. Trap And Skeet Club The Triathlon competition requires a rare combination of proficiency in pistol shoot- ing, swimming, and cross-country running. The Triathlon Team competes against both the Canadian and the United States Olympic Modern Pentathlon Teams each year. Traditionally, several of the top per- formers at the National Championships have been members of the West Point team. Triathlon is not all work though, each year is concluded with the " Neander- thal Meet. " Included is a dip in " warm " Lake Popolopen in May. West Point Orienteering Club This year there was some real talent run- ning around in the woods of West Point, The United States Military Academy Team was training hard for the New England and National Champion- ships and other meets around the Northeast. Mikel! Piatt (G-2,80), two- time National Junior Champion, and Jim Arsenault (B-4,80), brought a lot of ex- perience back to the team from Orienteer- ing in Sweden and Finland. Several home meets capped off a very successful season, and next year looks even better with a lot of returning talent from ' 80, ' 81, and ' 82.

The Army Rugby Club, led by Head Coach MAJ Charlesworth and team captain Dave McCann, started the Spring Season with a flurry. After a slow fall season, highlighted by the hard-fought Sandhurst match, the team completed its Southern tour with a 4-1 record and looked forward to grudge matches ver- sus Dartmouth, the Connecticut Yankees, and Navy. For still another year, the team played against some of the best teams in the country and reinforced its reputation as a skillful, aggressive, gutsy team that has to be considered one of the best teams on the East Coast. Army Rugby Club Mountaineering Club The West Point Mountaineering Club sponsors a wide range of outdoor ac- tivities. Technical rock climbing on the Shawangunk Cliffs has traditionally held a prominent position in club activities. However, backpacking in the Adirondack Mountains is also a major activity. Ice climbing has recently seen a boom in club interest. Captain Fulton, the club officer- in-charge, and Pete Williams, its president, work hard to keep the club active. The Outdoor Sportsmen ' s Club provides an opportunity for cadets to enjoy the excellent hunting, fishing, and camping at West Point. The club also takes several trips each year to such places as Raquette Lake for bear and deer. Lake Oneida for fishing, and Fort Drum for upland game. The club is especially active in deer hunt- ing on the West Pont Reservation every Fall, and several cadets always take some big bucks. Outdoor Sportsmen ' s Club ■i- » P ' ;■ USMA Team Handball Club Team Handball is a competitive club sport which consists of a 24-member men ' s team and a 20-mcmbcr women ' s team. The Club participates in dual contests through- out the winter and spring with teams from Adelphi University, Syracuse University, Southern Connecticut, and the All-Army Team. This year the Team Handball Team traveled to Montreal to play the Canadian National Team. In addition to the United States National Championships, in which West Point was consistently placed in the top four, the West Point team sends players to the National Sports Festival (mini-Olympics) sponsored by the United States Olympic Committee. Last year six men and one woman from West Point traveled to Colorado to participate in the very first National Sports Festival. Each year approximately 20-30 cadets get together to play handball, thus forming the nucleus of the handball team. All levels of competition are represented, from beginners to players of national cali- ber. The club looks to develop in each cadet an appreciation for the game, while the team seeks to sharpen the competitive spirit of the members. The team always looks forward to its trip to the Pentagon to beat the officers of Navy (last year ' s score was 10-1). There arc four or five potential athletes this year who may go to the Nationals early in March. Everyone participates and has fun, which makes handball all the more enjoyable. The West Point Freestyle Wrestling Club was founded during academic year 1977- 78. In its second year of existence, the club continues to expand. Members have gained valuable experience in interna- tional style wrestling. Contrary to cadet myth, the club is not restricted to off- season corps squad wrestlers. This is evi- denced by Cadets Mike Brunett (80), Sean Shanty (81) and Pat Tiefer (81) who all enjoyed successful outings during the sea- son but were not members of this year ' s varsity squad. The club fell under the faithful leader- ship of Cadet Bill Lough (79), who was also forced to act as coach, trainer, and mana- ger due to an injury which sidelined him for the year. A transition of OIC ' s brought CPT Thomas Meyers into our group. His support and guidance were invaluable. Trips during the year included junkets to Newark, Delaware; Albany, New York; and Trenton, New Jersey. The club also hosts the annual West Point Freestyle Open each spring. Freestyle Wrestling 229 «r- ' West Point Marathon Club The Marathon Team and Club is in its eighth year of existence at West Point. It sponsors several trips to short races in the surrounding area, not to mention trips to marathons (such as the Boston and New York marathons) and ultra- marathons (Lake Waramaug, Connecticut). In addition, they organize the West Point ten-kilometer run each year. Top Left: Marty Swafford (lower left) sprinting for the finish line at the end of the Boston Marathon.

In the spirit of the 7th cavalry, the troopers of the Cadet Riding Team gal- loped into action at horscshows, fox- hunts, demonstrations, and sabre drills all around the New York area. Undaunted by short-sighted critics who still claim that the mounted soldier is obsolete, the Cadet Riding Team managed to win more than its share of trophies and championships and added a touch of nostalgia for those who long for the days when cavalry instruction for cadets was a daily exercise. The Riding Club is fast becoming a formal institu- tion again at West Point, and we may now hope to see a reinstatement of mounted reviews on the Plain!

Each Fall the Karate Team finds itself competing against other collegiate teams and private clubs. These competitions test the power, speed and agility of the cadets. The team is fortunate to have as its instructor Master Sang Soo (Tiger) Kim. Under the " Korean Tiger, " the team expects to practice an aggressive, winning style of Tae Kwon Do. In the Spring, the Karate Club takes up the task of training new members and honing the skills of the seasoned fighters. Testing in the Fall and Spring provides opportunities for advance- ment in a martial art that produces an athlete disciplined in mind, spirit, and body. 232 Bowling Team The Bowling Team, made up of 10 men and 10 women, distinguished itself nation- ally this year. Dea Bulen and Karen Hin- scy took first place in New England in a tournament doubles event and Dea Bulen placed third on the East Coast in the national singles. The men ' s team finished an outstanding year by capturing the con- ference championship in the men ' s divi- sion of the Tri-State Intercollegiate Bowl- ing League. The men also qualified for the Sectional Tournament as one of the top six teams in New England. Steve Sheaffer, qualified and came in 14th place in the nationals held in Tampa, Florida. The men ' s team also captured the Inter-Ser- vice Academy Trophy. The team, is ex- pected to do just as well, if not better, next year.

During the post-race party, however, questions of luffing rights and room at the marks are replaced by friendly probes into the other teams ' strong points, like: " Why did you go left when everyone else went right? " ; " How tight did you set your outhaul? " ; and the basic " How come you kept passing me all day? " The question inevitably asked of Army sailors, for which they have no answer, is " Why does the wind at West Point keep going around in circles? " USMA Women ' s Swimming Team First Row: R.

Undefeated in two streaight years of inter- collegiate competition, the team once again trounced Navy 10-1. In addition to six separate home matches the team also played at the Pentagon and the Down- town Athletic Club in New York City. Jim Pierson, team President, represented West Point in the National Intercollegiate Handball Championships held at the Uni- versity of Texas. With a strong nucleus of returning Juniors and Sophomores the winning ways of West Point Handball should continue in 1980. . ¥ V pt l I Kjl L H r IHI M J 1 l wl H 1 1 Top Left: Southside Johnny leading his Asbury Jukes in concert.

Twelve staff members manage the " Rock n Roll " end of the Business, producing one of the top concert pro- grams in the nation. Approximately 180 other members of the club work in all aspects of the productions from stage hands to publicity. The president. Rod Edmonds, and the officer-in-charge.

Theater Support Group members worked hard in support of every production held in Ike Hall this year — from comedy to drama, from rock concerts to symphony concerts. Yet even the longest hours of work were characterized by lots of good, all-around fun. Perhaps the Theater Sup- port Group can best be summed up by this short verse: We, the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible. We have done so much, with so little, for so long. We are now qualified to do anything with nothing. 242 Cadet Acting Troupe Above: " Have you ever tried to teach a mermaid to sit in a chair?

The Cadet Acting Troupe of the 1978- 1979 season was as successful as it always is. The first production, " Damn Yankees, " was a box office success with the highest audience turnout in years. This production was directed by Ed Castle and produced by Steve Parshlcy. The spring production was also successful, introducing a new, intimate " theater in the three-quarter. " The goals of the troupe are to entertain the West Point Community, teach cadets basic acting skills, and have a good time. Some cadets also try their hands at direct- ing and producing, including the Presidents of the Cadet Acting Troupe, Ed Castle and Steven McLemore.

Sound of Music is heard at Eisenhower Hall Right: Maynard Ferguson in concert at West Point- Year after year, the Cadet Fine Arts Forum provides an excellent pro- gram of entertainment for the West Point community. Academic year 1978-1979 was no different. With plays such as The Sound of Music, Antigone, and The VJiz the Cadet Fine Arts Forum brought a little taste of Broadway to West Point. For listening pleasure the Forum provided Maynard Ferguson, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Ruth Laredo, and the Minnesota Or- chestra. In addition, the Forum scheduled performances by Steve Allen and Marcel Marceau. Cadet Fine Arts Forum i The Cycling Club has two parts: a racing team and a touring group. The racing team competes in intercollegiate races with such schools as Penn State, Lehigh, John Hopkins, and others.

Un- der the coaching of Mr. Yani Yanezko, the team had its first off-season training period this year. Several members used this off-season training opportunity to learn the basics of judo, enabling them to fight with the regular team in the winter. With an increased membership the judo team fought numerous schools throughout it ' s season, topping the year off by com- peting in the Eastern Collegiate Judo Championships. 247 Rabble Rousers Top Left: Named after a mountain top (the reasoning is obvious) this formation is called the " Eiger.

The Pipes and Drums of the United States Corps of Cadets is a band composed of bagpipes, drums and bugles. It is Scottish- Oriented (the members wear the Mac- Queen tartan) and marches in the British style. The rousing screel of the bagpipes has been inspiring men in battle for cen- turies and its magnetic appeal has drawn diverse audiences to the club ' s perform- ances. The band members enjoy both the opportunity to learn how to play a unique instrument, and the chance to share in its haunting mystique with appreciative audi- ences. 249 Unsanctioned Clubs A cadet can only become a member of the Area Club after he is awarded a cer- tain number of points (demerits) or is awarded Area Club status directly (termed a " slug " ). The number of club members will vary from a few die-hard First Class- men during June Week to a few hundred after Christmas Leave haircut inspection. One of the members of the prestigious Area Club The " Other " Cadet Cycling Club is a new- comer to the Unsanctioned Organization category. Although not a newcomer to West Point this is the first year that the club has been officially assigned the coveted " Unsanctioned Organization " status. The club leaders attribute this oversight to a notable lack of aggressive publicity, but are looking forward to an increase in popularity as the gas shortage increases in severity (50 miles to the gal- lon is nothing to laugh at). Meanwhile, the club continues to appeal to the little bit of free spirit in everyone. For obvious reasons no pictures have been taken of his years Cow Car Club and no member ' s names have been sub- mitted. One of the more popular clubs at West Point, especially near the end of second semester junior year, the mem- bers insist on getting their thrills in un- usual ways. Instead of playing football, jumping out of airplanes, or flying air- planes, the club members see how long they can keep their Tactical Officer from finding out about their unauthorized cars. The winners of this unusual competition escape the agony of defeat (many hours on the Area) and get to drive their cars for a little longer than everyone else. ¥ t I I I 1 I I I 9 I J i1 if II -iS4«Sjs; ' ' ' ' Electronics Club With the name " Electronics Club " one tends to think that you have to be a juice hive to be a member, but this is not true. The club is broken down into two sem- inars: Hi-Fi and Amateur Radio (HAMS). Anyone that is interested in stereos — their operation, construction, repairs, etc. — becomes a part of the Hi-Fi Seminar. The HAMS operate the cadet radio sta- tion, W2KGY. For those who are not in- terested in the Hi-Fi or HAM Seminars, there is always space in the club room, 571 Bartlett Hall, for the experimenters eind repairmen.

Although there was lit- tle recognition for the tremendous amount of work put in, many people displayed great diligence and responsibility in com- pleting the job. The photographers who were managed by John Holland, ' 80, successfully and con- sistently filled the annual with quality photography. They were aided by Mr. Wynn Gold, the Manager of Studio One, with his fine portrait, group, and scenic photography. The helpful advice and ex- perience Wynn provided was also invalu- able. The Section Editors and typists were led by Mark Hurley, ' 80, Production Manager. Mark ' s hard work and devotion to the 1979 Howitzer was always a difficult act for everyone to follow. Bill Mann, ' 81, " Mark ' s right arm, " provided invaluable assistance to the workings of the Pro- duction Staff. The 1979 Business Staff had Rich Chris- tensen, ' 81, as Circulation Editor and Dan Ragsdale, ' 81, as Advertising Manager. Dan coordinated the one line advertising from our friends and supporters. Com- mercial Advertising was handled by Bob Flacon, our professional Commercial Ad- vertising Contractor. Rich had the tre- mendous task of Corps, officer, and ci- vilian sales expectations in the funding he collected. Much assistance was given to the Business Staff by Ed Frcesmeyer, ' 81, through his experience with the com- puter and his diligent work developing our sales program. The 1979 Howitzer Staff thanks Major Robert Love, the Officer-in-Charge for supplying needed advice making the final decisions on many pressing issues. Mrs. Joy Love helped proof many pages and was always available to lend a hand. 253 Our final and most gracious thanks to to Mr. Everett Arnold, Publisher ' s Represent- ative Jostens American Yearbook Com- pany. His talent, creativity, and persevcr- ence arc what the Class of 1979 have to thank the most for the quality yearbook wc have been provided. Special thanks to the many Howitzer ty- pists and helpers who worked hard in the shadow of the editorial staff. Without the help of everyone, we could not have successfully assembled the qual- ity yearbook we have. Thank you so much. MIKE THOMAS.

This year ' s " Slum and Gravy " was edited by Alex Kendris, with Davy Jones as assistant editor and photog- rapher. The excellent art work for " Slum and Gravy " was done by the talented Steve Thompson. Some Newsworthy stor- ies come from club and sport presidents and captains, but much of the news comes from reporting. If it happened " Slum and Gravy " covered it. The Bugle Notes has for decades provided countless hours of reading enjoyment to thousands of knowledge-hungry plebes. The delicate task of producing a publica- tion that accurately incorporates changes without disturbing tradition was the job of this year ' s Bugle Notes Staff, headed by editor Mike Edleson. While every year the upperclassmen complain that " the Corps has, " plebes can always rest assured the Bugle Notes has not. " How ' s the Cow?

The club made eleven trips away from West Point, per- forming in 27 concerts throughout the United States. The Glee Club took great pleasure in performing before thousands of Americans on these trips. In addition to its many appearances away from West Point, the Glee Club also per- formed nine times at West Point through- out the year, including a Christmas Con- cert and the annual June Week Concert. The Glee Club continues to be West Point ' s singing ambassadors, spreading its happy message throughout the country. The message is best expressed by the Club ' s motto: " No fun without music, no music without fun. " Glee Club Glee Club Headliners Gospel Choir The Cadet Gospel Choir was formed in September 1974 as a satellite of the Protestant Chapel Choir. Initially there were only five cadets. Each year the mem- bership has increased to the current strength of over 70 cadets. The specific purpose of the Gospel Choir is to participate in programs that will en- hance the spreading of the Gospel through song. Additionally, the Choir is able to represent the United States Military Aca- demy, and all that it stands for, in com- munities that do not normally have the opportunity to benefit from such contact. In the past four years, the Choir has ap- peared in the surrounding community as well as in New York City, New Jersey and other Eastern states. Zatholic Choir means a lot of things to a ot of people. To some it ' s a way to escape :he gray walls on weekends; to others, an spportunity to worship God in a very special way. Or maybe it ' s just a way to experience the friendship and comradery associated with belonging to a close-knit group having a common goal: singing. Catholic Choir 257 Protestant Chapel Choir Ik b ' H li ' fil £ £ The most rewarding aspect of the Chapel II Choir is the support of the Sunday morn- ing worship services. Besides this, a yearly trip is taken to Washington D.C. where the choir sings at the National Cathedral and the Pentagon. Other activities include scheduled trips to Pennsylvania as well as Union and Smith Colleges. Singing Han- del ' s Messiah, hosting various visiting choirs and participating in two picnics and a formal dining-in comprise the choir ' s schedule of home events for the year. The work of Director Organist, Dr. John A. Davis Jr. and the Officer-in-Charge, Major Geoffrey H. Kleb has made this year a memorable one for all concerned and is deeply appreciated.

The Jewish Chapel Choir, which consisted of 30 Cadets from all four classes, made four trips this year. The first trip, in December, took the choir to the exotic land of New Jersey. Two weeks later, the Choir flew to Washington DC. to help start the campaign drive for funds to build the proposed Jewish Chapel. Second semester activities included trips to New York City and Florida. Along with these trips, the choir sang in nearby communities and at Friday night services. The OIC for the 1978-79 year was Captain Polk. The CIC was Barry Jacobson and the Choir was conducted by Doug Lenhoff. Jewish Chapel Choir 258 Cadet Band — Music For The Corps The Cadet Band is the Corps ' own music support unit, and it provides timely and enthusiastic- if not entirely professional- response to the Corps ' " spontaneous " musical needs. For the first time in recent history, mem- bers of all four classes participated in Band functions which included aftertaps rallies, the Navy Bonfire Rally, a trip to Pittsburgh to support A-squad Football, a Lightweight Football Pep Band, and a Basketball Pep Band. Special groups in- cluded The Swingin ' Dix Jazz Band, which played at tailgate parties, and a brass choir that performed in the Christmas Concert at Eisenhower Hall. (This year the Cadet Band would especial- ly like to express its gratitude to those 1 members of the Corps and the West Point community who gave us the much needed " Well-dones. " Besides being able to sup- port our Alma Mater, you are the ones who really make all of the hard work worthwhile.

Beyond military expertise and athletic prowess, surprising artistic abilities surface, given the chance. The Hop Bands allow pseudo- rock stars to simultaneously exploit com- pany parties and other away functions. The club provides the expensiv e equip- ment while cadets supply their abilities to reproduce professional, contemporary sounds. The range of activities covers hops at West Point, local mixers and ex- change shows with sister academies. The objective of the Hop Bands Club is to un- leash cadet talent to the community.

This year the Scoutmaster ' s Council worked at these activities mentioned above, but primarily the seventeenth annual Camporee filled the club ' s calendar.

Catholic Chapel Sunday School Teachers set up their classes in Thayer Hall to teach a different kind of lesson. The children taught by both groups range from 4 years old to grade 12, representing the entire West Point community. The teachers seek to instruct these people in the Bible and about its author, Jesus Christ. A relation- ship with the Lord is a lifelong commit- ment for each one of the teachers, and it is the importance of this relationship that is shared with these young people.

" There will be a Fellowship of Christian Athletes Prayer Breakfast Thursday at 0620 in the Regimental Room ... " Sound familiar? It should. The FCA Prayer Breakfast is a twice-a-month activity. At a prayer breakfast we sing songs, a guest speaker gives a short talk and (most im- portantly) we eat breakfast. At Thanks- giving, Christmas and Easter a Special Prayer Breakfast is held at which the Council performs a skit. Other activities include a bi-weekly Film Forum, helping at the special Olympics in May and our infamous, fun-filled Winter Weekend in February. FCA at West Point is a small part of a nation-wide organiza- tion. Left and Above: The " Big Brother " program was one of the many community-involvement projects; ' sponsored by sub-groups of the Behavioral Scienceti Club ' The Behavioral Science Club is a service;! action organization. It is composed of five J seminars: the Contemporary-Affairs Sem-. inar, the Margaret Corbin Seminar, the. Social Actions Group, the Human Rela- tions Group, and SIMS. Each seminar has a different centra! objective and functions independently of the others. One of the most meaningful objectives of the Be- havioral Science Club is to stimulate the cadet ' s awareness of those around him so that he may better communicate with those different from himself, whether this difference be racial, sexual, cultural, or otherwise. Behavioral Science Club 264 Aero-Astro Club The Aero-Astro Club provided many cadets with the opportunity to learn to fly. Interested in flying? The Aero-Astro Club is the place for you. This year the Club has been into all areas of flying. Starting with ground school and flying lessons in small powered planes, the Aero-Astro Club also had programs in soaring, radio controlled planes, modeling, paper airplane flying, and ballooning. To finish the activities, the Aero-Astro Club went on several trips, had a film festival, and participated in the American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics. So, if you are one of the breed that would rather be flying above the ground than walking on it, you would be right at home in the Aero-Astro Club. Ann Landers honored West Point with a visit spo n- sored by the Academy Lyceum. The Academy Lyceum is a seminar of the Cadet Fine Arts Forum dedicated to pro- moting contact between the Corps of Ca- dets and prominent personalities. To this end, the Lyceum sponsors conversations with such well known figures as Walter Cronkite or George C. Scott. The format of these discussions is informal and de- signed to encourage questions from the audience. In this way, the Corps can learn and benefit from the ideas of recognized personalities. Education was the key phrase that de- scribed the 1978-1979 Astronomy Club. Trips to the Hayden Planetarium and the Smithsonian Institution were highlights of the year, along with a workshop that was help at the observatory of Colgate Uni- versity. Guest Lecturers from the physics department, the department of Earth, Space, and Graphic Science and the club itself provided informative reviews of cur- rent fields of discovery. In addition, many new members formed a solid base, so that the club will be able to continue it ' s ac- tivities in future years.

Top Right: Having dinner with language instructors offered a break to the mess hall routine in addition to being educational. Left: Another escape from the mess hall involved sampling the culinary delights of other cultures. The language clubs: German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, and French, provide a liaison between the increasingly important foreign affairs of other countries and the cadets of the United States Military Academy. They also promote an understanding of other cultures, a necessary characteristic of today ' s Army officer because of the in- creasing importance of international rela- tions. The clubs perform these functions through the active use of seminars, lec- tures, films, exchange programs, and trips to such places as the United Nations and the Central Intelligence Agency. SCUSA SCUSA is designed around a series of plenary and informal social events. The plenary sessions — the one panel discus- sion and the keynote and banquet ad- dresses — permit the conferees to hear the views of eminent personalities in- volved in the study and formulation of foreign policy. The heart of the confer- ence, however, consists of geographically and functionally oriented roundtablcs. Here the students meet with a group of about 15 colleagues to analyze issues, prepare policy options, and make recom- mendations in a specified area of foreign policy. Right: J.

Bottom Right: Ambassador at large. Elliot Richard- son starts off the SCUSA conference The Debate Council and Forum is the creation and province of the Department of Social Sciences, whose officers ' total devotion insures that the cadets involved truly get the most out of their years at West Point. The Debate Council and Forum is made up of the Debate Club, which participates in tournaments throughout the nation; SCUSA; the West Point Forum, which enables cadets to par- ticipate in events such as a model United Nations; the Finance Forum, which offers cadets real world involvment in the stock market; and the Domestic Affairs Forum, which exposes cadets to leading national personalities, policy makers, and influen- tial and well-known members of the media, government and business. More cadets are involved in the Debate Council and Forum than in any other single activity at West Point. tlliotlRicysoi Above Left: At times it was hard to tell which was better, drill or debate practice.

Engineering Forum — Planning For Tomorrow Geology Club Captain Pratt, Vince Mari, Jan Berlin, John Buckley and president Ken Anderson all helped make this an excellent year for the Geology Club. The members of the club all had a lot of fun and went on many trips such as canoeing on the Delaware and Housatonic Rivers; spelunking in Suprise Cave; and visiting Northfield Mountain, Franklin Mine, Watkins His- tory. The club even had its own Gem show and took a trip to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. " Go Rocks. " 269 Left: 1979 Ring and Crest Committee; First Row: M Bonds.

Briefly, anything that involves the cadets at West Point involves the Class Committees. They serve as a liaison between the cadets and the Superintendent, the Commandant, cind the Dean. The class officers and re- presentatives help plan all class functions, such as the Corporal-Private Football Game, 100th Night, and special week- ends. The Class Committees also work to establish the class car policy and the Fourth Class System. The Class Commit- tee may not be the largest organization of cadets but they may very well be the most important. Top: 1980 Class Committee Officers - B Schardt. M. Shadle, B. Dalton, M. Knapp, D.

Black Knights Score Early Season Success Army started its 1978-79 football season at full speed, soundly trouncing Lafayette 24-14. This gridiron battle was typical of what was to come during the remainder of Army ' s season. While the defense was impregnable, holding Lafayette to only 33 yards rushing total, the Black Knight offensive consistently stumbled, having many difficulties maintaining a sustained drive. With the score only 10-7 at halftime. Army finally secured its victory with only 2:33 remaining in the game, as the game ' s leading rusher, Jimmy Hill, plunged over for six points. The Black Knights were abruptly shocked by Virginia ' s 21-17 upset victory over them. Ahead 17-7 at halftime, it appeared as though Army was on the verge of a typical early season rout. However, Army was blown apart in the second half by both the Cavalier offense and defense. While the Black Knights never seriously threatened to score, Virginia mounted two sustained drives for touchdowns, handing Army its first loss of the season, Washington State entered the confines of Michie Stadium as the Black Knights ' third opponent of the 1978-79 season. While the Cougars were 3-0 and Army only 1-1, all odds makers were betting against the chances of an Army victory. The first half went as predicted as the Cougars jumped out to a 21-7 halftime lead. However, the Army Team came into its own in the last 30 minutes of the game. The Black Knight defense forced five Washington State turnovers, including three interceptions. The Army offense capitalized on these errors twice, with Jimmy Hill scoring all of Army ' s touch- downs. Army just missed breaking the 21-21 tic as a fifty-yard field goal fell short with only seconds remaining. Army Pride- Stronger Than Ever l 2r ' ' ' T r :•5« ' ' -:!? riiM- ' tr. Army has a long tradition of pride in its athletic teams and 1978-1979 was no ex- ception. Army teams, although not always the national champions, were supported as though they were the best. With cadets waving everything from shoes to under- wear at games, with after-taps underwear football games, with actual spontaneous rallies consisting of one or two indi- viduals playing horns while dozens of others ran around shouting cheers and others playing their stereos out the win- dows, and with a tremendous display of spirit during a somewhat futile fourth quar- ter of the Army-Navy game, the Corps showed the world what pride means. 281 Army Overwhelmed Left; Holy Cross had the last laugh in this year ' s game.

The Black Knights seemed incapable of doing anything right and Holy Cross could do no wrong. Army returned to the road the ensuing week- end to face Florida State. The Gators, cele- brating their Homecoming Week, pounced on Army, winning 31-7.

Mistakes consistently de- troyed Army ' s chances, including a 99- ard fumble recovery which tied the ' cinthers with Army. Army-Navy , ' ' " Week { y Army-Navy Football Army Team Trips Army Pride Wins Army vs. Navy- the classic collegiate football rivalry- resulted in once again. Army ' s brightest hopes being crushed. The Navy bowl-bound team pushed the Black Knights all over the field, forcing six turnovers and winning 28-0. Every attempt to get a drive going was foiled by Navy ' s nationally-ranked defense. The Navy team drove over for four touchdowns, including one on a fake field goal. However, the Army-Navy game was not a toal loss, for an element known as pride was revived in the United States Corps of Cadets. In the fourth quarter, though down by 28 points, the Corps of Cadets went wild. A sudden surge of spirit swelled through the ranks of the Corps, as they began to cheer as if they were on the verge of victory, it no longer became important whether Army won or not. Instead, the feeling came alive that this was the Arm y Team and, for better or worse, the Corps was proud of their members which battled against over- sized teams for the glory of West Point. With cadets removing their dress greys, exhibiting their 12th man shirts, running up and down the aisles, and cheering like lunatics, a near-silent Navy crowd got to see what Army spirit was all about. This was the true victory of the Army-Navy game. 292 Two Black Knights Named All-East j fj Finishing 4-6-1, the 1978-79 football sea- son was not the best the Army Team has ever had. However, several individuals garnered numerous awards. Team Cap- tains Chuck Schott and Clennie Brundidge were named to the 1st All-East Team by the Associated Press. Chuck Johnston was named to the United Press International 1st All-East Team. Brundidge, who set four Army career reception records, was also named Ail-American Honorable Men- tion and played in the Hula Bowl. Two highpoints of the season were the victory over Air Force and the support the team got in the last quarter of the Army-Navy game. The win over Air Force was Army ' s third consecutive victory over this intcrservice rival. The support the Corps gave its team in the waning mo- ments of the Army-Navy game was " fan- tastic, a great way to go out on a disap- pointing year.

Medoff 349 Army Sports - Moments Of Excitement nui MM 1 H H II 1 ir f § Michael Gcarty aii l MieliacI Kallniaii, E lit«»r The Smiling Stops Here R-Day - wish you were here. July 7, 1975 is one day which will forever burn brightly in the minds of one particular group of then shell-shocked individuals. And burn we did - in more ways than one. The local atmosphere on that first day provided for a very warm reception to the wonder- ful ways of West Point, especially when it came to the peculiar little things the welcoming com- mittee said and did, like " DROP YOUR BAGS, MISTER. " " Huh? " " DROP YOUR BAGS, MISTER. " " Oh. " (Sets them down gently) And we all know the story from there. But there was more - much more. Shock. Confusion. Fear of the Unknown. And a desperate need of escape. (Wish I could quietly melt into the hot black asphalt right now) Not to mention, of course, the unmistakable feeling of being watched by more than one pair of eyes with every move we made. Throughout the melee of noise and confusion (what barber- shop?) we were see-lected, in- spected, and dee-tected but never nee-glected (thanx and a hat tip to Arlo G.) " Sir, New Cadet Tirebiter, first squad, second balloon reports to the sergeant as ordered first for the time being. " Or something like that. But no matter. Here we were and there they are. But where am I? Goodbye pork-pie hat and goodbye to all the other sweet spices of life that we chose to sacrifice for a new way of living Thoughts of family, friends, and the sane life gradually faded into oblivion as we applied ourselves to the shaky business of survival in a new and very demanding way of life as new cadets: PT and Gen- eral George S. Patton with a few encouraging words of wisdom in the dew-damp early morn ' , follow- ed by a mad rush of flying fatigues, and a shotgun breakfast (do they ever eat around here?). Bayonet training and a leisurely stroll up to Howze Field (cross over! not again?!), drill and manual, issue formations (itta fitta fine, mister, you like? You take it), lectures (and more lectures), mass athletics, foot marches (are we there yet?), and shine, memorize, shine, and mem- orize some more. These were all part of a complex process which we did not yet fully understand — the task at hand was more a matter of survival from day to day. Will it ever end? h - Beast was over, but the fun had just begun. Reorgy was no breeze, and the fire would grow. It finally did, and we all hiked out to Lake Frederick (via Camp Buck- ner and sign-toting yearlings) to celebrate. Of course, it was never really over, but things sure did go a lot easier for awhile, especially when we watched our fearless but slime-stricken squad leader pull himself out of the muck of beauti- ful Lake Frederick. Summer camp was over before we knew it, and the march back to West Point was filled with blisters and apprehen- sion of what evil monsters awaited us in regular letter companies (es- pecially with a presage of things to come from yearlings lining the streets of Buckner.) Perceptive individuals that we were, we found out pronto what was in store for the next eleven months (or at least for the four end- less days of Reorgy Week.) Class- mates in companies were known from marathon HURT sessions at Lake Frederick, but upperclass names and faces were a blur of who ' s who in our outfit and what ' s the name of that goofy four-eyed firstie who talks (and hazes) like he just lost four wisdom teeth that he never had in the first place? The gray cloud of academics loomed over us, however, language labs and the black death of MA 101 soon became a part of our daily routine. Head minute caller for a whole week? You gotta be kidding! Nope, we play for keeps now, and will the head minute caller see the First Sergeant at his table in the Mess Hall. All kidding aside, the s hit the fan that week, and we finally joined the Corps with the accep- tance parade. That night all hell broke loose and the memories of it still linger. Nevertheless, we were in. For what we were in remained to be seen. We saw soon enough. Immediately in fact. Reorgy Week somehow lapsed into the pandemic past, the weekend was over in a flash, and Academe loomed over ' 79 like an ominous black storm cloud. MA 101, (the black death?), take boards, and . . . yeah, this guy I have checked shoes, belts, and dressoffs Day 1 and warned us not to " borrow " his multi-colored chalk for " frivolous limestone expres- sions of ebullient school spirit all over Central Area . " Some wel- come! .- •»■ Some chose to ignore the impending doom, but the rigorous routine would eventually catch up to everyone. Adjustment to plebe life was tough for some; to others, a cake walk. Welcome? No one said it would be easy. That, friend, was obvious. Some of us cashed in right away on dividends from the First National Bank of Thayer. Others saw long- term yields as a long-term excuse for cashing in on a little (and some- times more than a little) extra rack and R ' n ' R. Whatever we did (or didn ' t do) in the classroom, foot- ball games, Corps Squad competi- tion, and our baptism into intra- murder provided new blisters and essential vents for the daily frustra- tions and trials of plebe life. Thanksgiving: Turlccy on the Hudson and more thoughts of home, but Navy wasn ' t long in coming. The city of Brotherly Love awaited us with open arms and we responded in a frantic frenzy of fun. Thanksgiving on the Hudson was a new and somewhat depressing experience. A light drizzle of grey rain didn ' t help much, and a tele- phone call to home may have made the situation worse. Yearlings (es- pecially degenerate area convicts) were quick to remind us that time passes (slower for some than others, they added), and that Navy ' s destruction and the City of Brotherly Love would somehow make up for lost time. Army lost. We didn ' t. It was an authorized horror show. The ride back was an incredible odyssey of no left turns unstoned. The OC attended to all casualties in a man- ner Florence Nightingale would have envied . . . maximum TLC, y ' understand. TOPPING OF THE WEEK J60AT MEAT " ' r - v USMIk ■ iPP ' » i Impatience grew as we anticipated Christmas. Life on the outside had never seemed so good. During that next long stretch, Christmas decorations (with due respect to the energy crunch) helped the days to slip by, and be- fore you could say " ROAD TRIP " we were out ' o ' here. Adios, rock and snow-bound highland home, for a little while, anyway, and let ' s cruise, amigos. And cruise we did, for two weeks of long-awaited fun, freedom, and other forgotten pleasures of life on the outside. But for one reason or another, most of us came back. Some didn ' t. Mountains of plowed snow in Cen- tral Area loomed over us, like the unknown threat of TEE ' S. Sedge- wick ' s spurs and Sanka pulled most of us through, though, and we waved good-bye to the January trip section. One semester down, with infinity and a butt to look forward to 100th Night was a welcome and shortlived change. Gloom somehow slid into sweet Spring and Plebe Parent Weekend left laundry de- livery and mail-carrying behind for more important things, such as drill and parades on a spongy plain that had obviously seen better days. The gray gloom somehow slid into sweet Spring and we traded in the black death for frisbee and football on the plain. Before we knew it, June was here and the men of ' 79 were plebes no more. Speaking of better days, Spring saw a fierce battle between frisbee and the Dean. The Black Death of MA 102 was no match for clear skies and the lush green grass of the plain. Sooner or later (sooner, in most cases) academics took its toll of the Top of the Line and the TEE monster once again reared its ugly head to harass the men of ' 79. The nose count ran tight between the library and sun decks scattered around campus, but we would not let a few golden opportunities to excel stand in the way of a few kicks, lots of good rays, and a hearty welcome to recognition and yearling brass. Mother McCree and Saints be praised, we made it! Upon the fields ofpenMy strife ' , are sown ihc seeds ihat.upon other f elds, on other daxjs.will bear thefiwts of Victoiy. General Douglas Madxtiliur Camp Buckner was the best summer of our lives. We packed twenty years of excitement into two short months. Camp Buckner. The very name conjures up wonderful visions of broiling I.T. sessions, freezing Recondo expeditions, and many, many big, bright red rocks down by the ole ' swimmin ' hole. And don ' t forget the lucious lerps and charred chickens (not exactly Purdue quality but it takes a tough chicken to make a tougher man, right, Frank?) Engineers was a blast (which way to Vaudeville?) when we weren ' t up to our ears in the mud of Lake Stillwell. FA (WHAT???) left us with an avid appreciation of charge-7 and ear plugs. Signal Corps training threw dubious light on the horrors of Juice of which we heard so much and hoped to avoid but never did. Armor and ADA at Ft. Knox was a good time for all. We quickly picked up on the fact that you didn ' t have to be a full-time tread- head to like trackin ' and truckin ' uphill, down dale, and over trees at 35 mph in 60 tons of Yankee in- genuity and Detroit iron. ADA and Vulcan firing was no turkey shoot either. From our first day in the woods, we learned the bare facts of what it was like to be wet, cold, alone and hungry. Once we got the hang of it though, the ranger game was like making mud pies. Back at Buckner, there was frisbee, football, queens, and beer (not nec- essarily in that order) on the fabu- lous sands of Popolopen Mountain Resort - later, the APFT and Buckner Stakes and, finally. Camp Illumination. The best summer of our lives? Undoubtedly the most different for ' 79, and in many re- spects the most rewarding. The bears and beasts of Buckner were safe once again from the conquer- ing yearlings, and we all hopped aboard east-bound lorries for a quick jaunt to the Hudson. Reorgy II- ' " Dean demands a rematch. " The Third Class are drilled, taught and trained. Welcome back for the recondo toughened yearlings. Strange new faces filled the ranks of ' 78 and ' 80 on either side of us, and we welcomed Reorgy Week in a different light than a year before. Eternal drill periods on the plain, however, reassured us that al- though some things change from time to time, some never change. Labor Day Weekend flashed by and unmercifully dumped an un- suspecting class of bright-eyed yearlings into the menacing clutches of Chemistry, Math, Physics and a host of other mouse- traps of Academe. Mousetraps? B.F. Skinner? By God, let ' s not for- get PL201 and the SOR Model, good buddy. After all, BS L class- room encounters have always been so intellectually stimulating and educationally enlightening. And my, Mrs. Cleaver, what a beauti- ful dress you ' re wearing today! By the way, is Wallace at home? The yearling syndrome, a deadly disease that traced to the well known phenomenon of " rackitis " soon took its horrible toll. Fighting the rack monster was a losing battle from the word go -especially during Physics and Chemistry; regardless, Einstein pulled us through. Home we weren ' t, but the bag and a well-used green quilt full of Z-gas was a pretty good substitute when all else failed. Getting to know an officer or noncom and their families through the sponsor program was certainly one of the best exper- iences we had as yearlings. It was also very gratifying, as many rela- tionships and warm friendships grew between cadets and sponsors. . ' ■. ' .., ?

Xi - ' , - Yearling year opened new doors for the men of ' 79. The Grand Ballroom at Ike Hall, the restaurant booths, the game room and flirtie were welcomed and much used new authorizations. Indeed, we never had it so good. Small wonder, then, that attitudes strengthened and solidified one way or the other during " soph " year at Uncle Sam ' s Community College for ' 79. Carbon chains and the right-hand-rule took a back-seat to hallway hockey, wayward week- ends and occasional apathy. Blazers gave us the green light to shed our straightjackets (born of yesteryear but still worn presently) and hit the big-time at Ike Hall to become passion-struck and limp- hearted at the sight of such in- credible beauty gliding gracefully ' neath the elegant chandeliers. This, then, was a Saturday night at Ike in its full glory. We never had it so good. The completion of two long years at good old Uncles place on the Hudson left you with very definite ideas of West Point and life in general. Whether cynical and sarcastic of the petty rules and regulations, or deeply in awe of the unspoken magnificence of the whole thing, we gained a special and very singular insight into the demands and pressures of military life. And even time fer a few cold ones every now ' n ' then, b ' golly. A-yup! In any case, ' 77 soon cashed in their chips and we were Cows. Two down, two to go. Call it the half- way house, Harry, and slide into summer once more. v m t t-.-. ,- I Bik i$A. _ " t«p ' - E ' -ft — . . BB I .-ii ' VM V! -t -r S v,-, ' 1 I ■ «- s J Summer of ' 77; airborne, ranger, jungle, Nor-War, CTLT SERE. We suffered sweat strained but had a good ole tyme as cows. ' 79 took many different roads that summer. The beacons of Ft. Ben- ning beckoned to Airborne and Ranger hopefuls and promised a nice warm stay (somewhat longer for the latter than the former) in the wilds of Airborne Country, downtown Columbus, and the scenic Everglades. Mosquito spoken here? Plenty of ' em and many more down Panama way as our Jungle School experts will tes- tify (but please, boys, not in pub- lic!). Aurora Borealis and the pros- pect of a steady job washing dishes on the Alaska pipeline lured others to hijack a dogsled (complete with huskies and Eskimo guide) to the snow and glaciers of Northern War- fare. SERE provided a challenge to rational thinking if you enjoyed eating and drinking every now and then. Some of us filled slots as squad leaders in Beast and platoon leaders at Buckner. The rest of ' 79 put on their travelin ' shoes and lit out for the far reaches of the globe on leave, CTLT, and various foreign exchange programs. All in all, it was a very salty and seasoned ' 79 that funnelled back to Home- on-the Hudson that September. Shuffled And Committed We Were Buried In Academics, But That Did Not Stop Us. But hold on there just one min- ute, pardner. Home was no longer the same faces and same places. Scrambled and set adrift in the four winds before the Great Sum- mer Exodus, the men of ' 79 immed- iately stamped their mark on their new outfits. Not about to let a lit- tle switcheroo do us in, we stayed on top of things and settled in with satisfaction to join the profession of arms with the first academic class of the year (Pass the pen and where do I sign for two more years of self-inflicted insanity at bargain basement prices?) The initial onslaught of second class academics was, in a word, staggering. Physics, Fluids, Ther- mo, Solids, Law, and, at the top of everyone ' s (well . . . almost every- one) most unwanted list-yup, you got it, Bub-JUICE. Undaunted (but nuked and a little shaken) we pressed on to bigger and better things, like Hostess Office Cof- fee Call, and the very finest in cinematic productions (weeknight flicks, complete with the raunchy previews brought to you by AAFES) over at the ole movie house in dear beloved Thayer Hall. QUIIT PIEASE o o nvo oj Bf AT un Z - l ' COACH Liquid refreshment has a positive impact on our lives changing our perspective for the better. Cross-campus, Ike Hall offered new promise and many horror shows to come with the advent of brew a la 3.2 by the glass or pitcher if you dared to risk the experience of a liquid lobotomy. Things certainly took on different dimensions after a lively Saturday night of chasing Pepperment Schnapps and other sundry smuggled spirits with the golden suds of Ike Hall. Cold beer and hot nights at dear old Woops! Who would have ever believed it? Was the place actually beginning to open its gray heart and change with the times? Were we the eye-wit- nesses of history-in-the-making? Intramurder offered ' 79 a new twist that year. Some of us donned the duds of refs and officials, slipped a crackerjack whistle around our necks, and carried our importantcy clipboards to wherever the fields of friendly strife might have hap- pened to be. There we meditated, monitored, and made concerted ef- forts to control organized violence at its very best. We were, to quote a well-known phrase, in our finest hour. t. sooth night, the elusive day we all awaited was soon here. It was a major milestone in the long trek toward graduation. Ring weekend, not long after, made us proud ' ring knockers, " that ' s if our rings weren ' t attached to water pitchers. Well . . . hours we weren ' t counting yet, but 500th Night marked a wel- come milestone in our headlong four-year flight to that goal which still seemed a long way out in left field. Ring Weekend, without a doubt, brought things a whole lot closer, as all those present during ring presentations will agree. With a wee bit of Emerald City on our fingers, then, and a twinkle of the light at the end of proverbial tun- nel in our eyes, we ruled the roost as exalted Area Commandants and fumbled our way through pre-din- ner saber practices. Before we knew it, ' 78 was up and out of Michie in a flash and the men of ' 79 changed class brass for the last time. •SJUv ' . lA Ms .iiiii ki ' 2rr) ' V» jVAi J ii otb L)l5Ab -if lTa6tb :; r, " j- .

First class summer meant responsibility During the summer of First Class Year, the adventures of ' 79 proved to be as rewarding as any experi- ences of the previous three years, either home or abroad (or other- wise unspecified locales). The lure of Airborne School and CTLT prov- ed to be irresistible for several of our finest, while others became in- volved in social work with Over- seas Exchange and Summer Intern Programs. Many of us hopped a fleet of Uncle Sam ' s Reliable Willys out that good ole ' 293 (Breaker 19, I ' m a ' lettin ' y ' all know a green bear just blew my doors off on the west- bound mountain stretch) to relive the vivid experiences of Camp Buckner. The rest of ' 79 sat tight right here on the Hudson to endure marathon CP T butcher-paper sessions prior to tackling the other side of Beast Barracks for the Class of ' 82. Strict discipline under the command of our favorite tanker (simplicity spo- ken here?) sometimes provoked questions as to whose Beast it real- ly was, and our patience was tried more than a few times in the midst of the summer heat. Flexibility was the word of the day, however, and we quickly adapted to changes from the top of the ladder, making for a very successful summer of Cadet Basic Training. Firsties: at last! Our final academic year begins. With the valuable experiences of summer training under our belt, we made a smooth transition into the Academic Year (for the last time, Father, Son, and Holy Dean will- ing). Some of us jumped right into leadership positions across the Corps. Others jumped right into their June Week wheels and lit out to find " faster horses, younger women, better whiskey and green- er pastures. " At least one of the latter pleasures could be easily found right here at home (home?- who said that?) down at the rip- roaring Firstie Club, and you could always smuggle in a pint of your particular brand of Irish gold (do 1 hear Jameson ' s?) if you took a likin ' to laughing and beltin ' boiler- makers. Few of us lost time in coming to re- gard Firstie coffee call as an almost religious experience (complete with the sacred sacrement caffein) and Grant Hall silently beckoned as the undisputed Mecca of potable joe and lively conversation. As a result our favorite academic pursuits such as " sosh " , art, and leadersleep often took a back seat to better times and many of us demonstrated strong promise toward winding up on the Dean ' s other list. .w J Spontaneous exuberant school spirit, football, tailgates and unleashed insanity at Navy. Mandatory attendance at football games initially took the competitive edge off school spirit, but ' 79 re- bounded with strong support for the Black Knights and the flounder- ing, flabbergasted Homer. (Tail- gate pre-game griming and prepar- ation undoubtedly helped to raise spirits in the home-crowd stands.) Undaunted by the crashing waves of water and the Purple People Eaters of Holy Cross, we crowned a Homecoming Queen and antici- pated better results in the upcom- ing battle with the Annapolis crowd. They never came- the bet- ter results, that is. Once again, however, spontaneous spirit spurt- ed throughout the Corps, led by ' 79, and the gray blues of defeat were zipped off the reveal thou- sands of goldshirted grandstand gladiators in a frantic frenzy of un- founded fanaticism. (Why, what ' s the meaning of this insipid out- burst of insolence? What in the name of Great Thayer ' s Ghost do they think they ' re doing???) And the 12th man- all 4200 of him- was in all his glory- a vivid memory of unleashed exuberance to all who witnessed it that sunny day in the City of Brotherly Love. The weeks before graduation slipped by. Except for our small but select con- tigent that kept the bumps level in Central Area, the weeks after Navy slipped by like the swift waters of the Hudson. Christmas leave beck- oned, and ' 79 answered dutifully to the call of two long-awaited weeks with family and friends. Thoroughly refreshed in the art of living (but soon to sink once more into the depths of Neanderthal mentality), we returned to Woops to grope and search for relief, respite, and rolaids under the bar- rage of finals once again. In one way or another, however, we remained intact for the most part. Many of us, in fact, actually entertained wistful thoughts of graduation at this pont. That in it- self was not too difficult, however, considering the herds of fast-talk- ing Philadelphia salesmen in green suits that gradually invaded the place, hawking anything and every- thing you could possibly imagine, to include a new kitchen sink en- semble for that lovely new Army wife. And there were other signs that the end was near. In 1979, the Golden Age of Computers eclipsed and obliterated forever the human drama of our branch choice lottery as we fed our lowly computer card offerings and our future lives into the great god DIGITRON-X9 and hoped for the best. Finally there was 100th night, teas and our final week for at least a few? J I • . « F ♦ • f 1 1 ■ JUNE WEEK 402 You arc subject to the progression of events . . .

It would be difficult to find a better friend or a more well-rounded individual. Wtlt-I " Duffles, " " The Doctor. " A wrestler, a leader. Born and raised in F-1. Duff was " Old Corps " (after dinner smokes). We never figured out how he managed to get good grades He had a flare for writing and for ladies Always there to help. Duff was more than a friend.

Although a good help in academics, he never let studies get in the way of a weekend, nor his alotted time for writing letters. Luckily, this kept everyone pleased and the Dean silent.

WILLIAM EDWARD EBEL 1-2 Kansas Captain Bill came to West Point as the " All-American " boy.

Now. after having been tested both athleti- cally and academically, he is leaving it with maybe just a little less youth but with much added vigor. In simply taking his part in the so-called ' environ- ment ' around here this fiery red head has made known his willingness to both seek competition and make friends. German Club 4,3; Mountaineering Club 3,2,1; Pipes and Drums 4,3. 467 JOSEPH CHARLES FAHEY California F-2 Lieutenant A Southern Cal perspective didn ' t lend itself to Joe ' s academic excellence. He often claimed " if you can ' t be well prepared, at least be well rested. " When he wasn ' t in the bag, he was hitting it on his way to a Brigade boxing championship. Perhaps he will find bridge-building in Germany preferable to a binding re- lationship here at home but, in any case, a better Engineer will be hard to find. PAUL FENSTERMACHER C-4 Maryland Sergeant Paul ' s motto should be " you can ' t keep a good man down. " He became very familiar with the area in his senior year. As any cadet knows, the area is not something you want to become familiar with in your senior year! They took his privileges but not his spirit or heart. Paul will never lose because he never gives up. Aero-Astro Club 2. GEORGE MICHAEL FEDUN B-2 New York Lieutenant George came to West Point from the southern shore of The Island, with an empty six of Molson in the car. Throughout the four years he was here.

MICHAEL JON WOODWORTH A-2 Wisconsin Lieutenant He was always " Woody " or " Grandma " to us We ribbed him about being a little old-fashioned, but we would not want him any other way.

KENNETH MARK ZOELLER CI New York Sergeant MICHAEL ANTHONY ZONFRELLI HI Massachusetts Lieutenant Ken is one of the few cadets who has benefited so- cially from his visit here. He came in as a model cadet and graduates as a model college student. He has proven the theory that studying and grades are inversely proportional, and typifies the time-proven theory that studying is also inversely related to per- sonality. This heralded theorist will always be an ex- ample for free-spirited cadets to follow. Mike, " Zeo " . can best be described as Mister Con- sistency. Whether on the Rugby pitch, in the field, or in the academic environment, Mike does consist- ently well.

Sheridan, founded the Army Mutual Aid Association. Their action grew out of compassionate concern for the widows and father- less children left destitute as a result of the Custer mas- sacre at Little Big Horn. Sheridan and his associates recognized the need to provide a mutual benefit organi- zation to help prevent such severe hardship for Army officers ' survivors in the future. Today, 100 years later, AMAA has 46,600 active mem- bers participating in a program where the central fea- tures are long term assistance to survivors and low cost life insurance. Benefits are constantly improved, pre- miums are kept low, and AMAA ' s coverage is custom- tailored to the Army officers ' needs. Membership rolls have included not only founders such as Sheridan, but also John J. Pershing, George C. Marshall, Dwight D. Eisenhower, the two MacArthurs, father and son, and many other distinguished American officers. The General Philip H. Sheridan statue, Sheridan Circle, Massachusetts Avenue, Washington, D.C.
