IN presenting this volume to the battalion and its other friends, 'IQO3 pays its farewell to its
Alma Mater. The book is composed of the gleanings of three years of toil, and is, of course, intended
primarily as a memento of our academic career, so you who are not members of the class, do not
be too hard on us if you cannot understand some of our jokes. Remember that they are intended
for the class. We have tried to produce a book that will be of interest, not only to the battalion,
but to any one who takes an interest in the Navy School. Vtfe earnestly hope that the articles on
athletics will bring this subject before the graduates who have left the service, and that the article on
the Naval Academy will impress upon them the fact that their Alma Mater, much as they abused her
while here, still lives, and that she ought to live in their hearts forever. We thank our friends out-
side of the class for the help they have given us, and we thank the members of the class for furnishing
us with several good jokes at their expense. We thank .lang for his toothg Leo, for his punsg Mike,
Fwetzie, and the Dago, for their little peculiarities 3 but principally we thank the officers of the
"Indiana" for the happy cruise we had on her that gave us a chance to regain our lost faculties and

THE HERNDON MONUMENT.
THIS building was erected in 1871, and was originally de-
signed to accommodate two hundred cadets. According to the plans,
it consisted of a main building Cthe square central partj and two
wings. The large rooms of the main building on all the Hoors
and the small rooms on the first floor of the west wing were intended
for recitation rooms, the small rooms on the upper floors as dormi-
toriesg the large examination halls on fourth Hoor, as lumber and
storage roomsg and the training room as a pantry. The needs of
the growing Academy have required that all space he given up to
the dormitories, that the mess hall be enlarged by an addition, and
that one hundred extra rooms be built in the Annex.
The original structure was surmounted by a tower containing a
four-disked clock that struck the hells instead of the hours. The
dilapidated state of the building rendered the vibrations of the
structure unsafe, and in ISQQ the tower was removed.
Besides the dormitories of the upper classes, the building con-
tains the mess-hall, kitchen, store-room, reception-room, and the
oiiices of the Commandant of Midshipmen, the Senior Assistant,
and the Officer-in-Charge. A reading-room, with piano and peri-
odicals, is maintained by the midshipmen in both Annex and Main
The building was condemned in 1900, and new quarters are
well under process of construction. Witliiii a few years, the old
Quarters will be demolished, and another landmark of the old
Academy will pass away.
The Herndon Monument
GFFICERS of the Navy erected a monument, in june, 1860, to the memory of Commander Williaiii
L. Herndon, U. S. Navy. On September 12th, 1857, the mail steamship, "Central America," of
which he was in command, was wrecked by a terrible storm in the Gulf of Mexico. Refusing to
leave .his quarter-deck until every passenger had secured a place in the life-boats, the gallant officer lost
The shaft is a plain granite pyramid, eighteen feet
high, surmouuting a square base. It bears the simple
inscription, "I-lerndonf, while on the opposite side is
the date, '4September 12th, I857.U In the Navy, sim-
plicity otten marks the grandest deeds.
DUIQING the long winter months, many are the
hours that we spend in the steam building. Here
we not only learn many things theoretical, but also
try to apply this knowledge to things practical. As
youngsters, we made many shavings, and incidentally
one or two brackets, in the pattern shop: made mud
pies in the foundry, hammered our hands out of shape in the blacksmith shop, and raised a horrible
din in the boiler shop. As Second classmen, we chipped and tiled at blocks and rings, learning how
t0 kill time, As First classmen, we simply stood by and allowed the machine tools to do all our
Work. VVhenever a distinguished visitor came to see us, we would group ourselves artistically around
SOme one of the unfinished engines, and put on such wise expressions that a visitor might have thought
us capable of designing and building such an engine ourselves. We must confess, howevel, that we
have great doubts that anyone ever was deceived by this maneuvre.
FOR artillery drill the battalion of midshipmen
is divided into eight platoons, each platoon consisting
of two sections. 'lfhe division formation for infantry
is followed in forming the platoons. Each section
mans and works a three-inch Held piece. The drill
follows to some extent the light artillery of the army,
with such modifications as tend to more especially
fit it for a ship's battalion,
The drills are under the command of an offi-
cer of the Ordnance Department detailed for the
'll.lllS row was built as quarters for the Army officers stationed at Fort Severn. As they were
originally built, in 1834, they were only a story and a half high, but in 1848 they were raised and
another story added. After being turned over to the Navy, they were still used as otlicers' quarters
until they were pulled down in the spring of IQOI.
During the Civil VVar they were used as hospitals,
and during the summer of 1898 they were used
as quarters for Admiral Cervera and some of his
AMONG the lirst of our plebe troubles were those
incident to handling' ourselves in a boat. Many of us
had never seen a cutter before wc were introduced to
them at drill, and to all of us the oars were a source
Of unending trouble.
n In the lirst place, even' if we got our oars ' BOATDRILL'
in the row-locks without hitting' the water, or some
one's head, we generally started out by missing' the water entirely, a proceeding calculated to in-
troduce our hacks to the handles of the oars behind us. Spurred on by scathing remarks from the
Stern sheets, we would next make a desperate lunge, to avoid a repetition of past misfortunes. This
invariably caused a "crab," and our own oars would smite us in front. About the time we were
Stfilightened out, a bowman would surely drop his boat-hook on our head. This time we thought
our last hour had come, but it revived us somewhat to hear some one else "cussed out." Other
troubles there were, such as learning to toss oars, untangling' the snarls we had made in the gear of
the sails, and the final race in from the
lighthouse, but the end of plebe year
found us with some idea of cutters and
our duties therein. As youngsters, we
spent our time laughing at the plebes or
fighting for the place of a supernnmerary
in the stern sheets. During Second class
year, several of us were coxwains of
cutters, but thc others were free from
these galleys. The coxswains now learned
many things, such as the "cussedness'l of
keeping line and distance, but more pill'-
ticularly the weatherly and handy qualities

men since that time as sick quarters. It is a three-story building, rendered fairly modern by recent
improvements, and well adapted to its purpose. XfVards and private rooms are provided for the use
of those who succeed in "pulling the list", waiting and consultation rooms, apothecary's shop, and
ofiices are well fitted. It, too, however, will soon be replaced by a large, new structure more in accord-
ance with modern ideas, and better suited to the needs of an ever-increasing battalion.
The Old Library
'l'n1s colonial governor's mansion, used as a library building, was the oldest in the yard, and per-
haps the most interesting. lt was built by a judge of the State, some time before the middle of the
eighteenth century. though the exact date is unknown. Later, it was rented by one of the proprietary

break of hostilities he took the Tory side, and sailed for England. His property, including the house,
was confiscated, and became the residence of the governors of the State until its purchase for the
Academy in 1866. lt was used for the library and Superintendenfs oHice.
, The Chapel
THE chapel was built shortly after the war, during the administration of Admiral Porter. From
time to time tablets have been erected in honor of various officers that have lost their lives in per-
formance of their duty. About a year ago a memorial window representing Sir Galahad was added.
This chapel will be replaced by the "Maine" Memorial Chapel when the new Academy is fully hnished.
The Steam Building
Tins steam building, at lirst called the "building of steam enginery," was finished shortly after the
Civil XVar. In this building midshipmen have proved time and time again that long-continued Bling will
wear away the hardest metal--and the most enduring patience.
.Here have luckless plehes and youngsters, and even Second
classmen, learned "my methods," as expounded in "my notes."
Here'have Second and First classmen become accustomed to
swallowing huge volumes ostrich-like, falsely thinking that the
amount learned is always proportional to the number of pages
passed over. This is a building of many and various uses, and
many and various have been our experiences therein.
THE STEAM BUILDING. Stribling Row '
Clillli row of buildings formerly extending from the old Seamanship building to the Gymnasium
on the ground now used for the new Quarters, was built between the years 1851 and 1856. They
were erected, a few at a time, during the superintendency of Commander Stribling, in order of number
from north to south. The lower part of the row was finished under Commander Goldsborough, and
these buildings were used as cadet quarters until June, 1900. Shortly after this date they were torn
down. .lust below them was a small building erected in 1854 as a laboratory of physics and chemistryg
but, owing to its proximity to the battery, delicate instruments were injured, and it was used as the
Academy store. lt is now used as the Oliicers' Club.
The present Library was originally built as an Ord-
nance building, in 1854. It was used as a Chapel until
the present one was completted, then filled with trophies,
models, and apparatus, and when the old Library was
torn down in 1901, the books were transferred to their

having been under construction for nearly four years in-
stead of the two years of the contract. The Armory
and the Boat-house are twin buildings, flanking the mag-
nificent new Midshipmen's Quarters, with which they are
connected by colonnades. Both are of rough granite,
with copper-covered roofs, and lined with vitrified brick.
Nearly all the interior space on the ground floor of the
Armory is taken up by a large drill floor, 36ox 100 feet,
one of the largest in the country. The floor is of concrete, covered with hardwood blocks mortised
together, the floor separated from the walls, to reduce the injurious effects of vibration. Except for
a gallery at the height of the windows, the hall is open to the roof. The roof is supported by iron arches
that reach down almost to the gallery. In the towers at each end are offices, section rooms, etc., for the
Department of Ordnance and Gunnery. This department will also use the gallery as an ordnance museum.

used as a museum. Nearly all the flags

The " Santee "
Tun "Santee's" keel was laid at Portsmouth Navy Yard in 1820, and she was launched thirty-
five years later. This record for swiftness has been well .sustained in all her later doings. She made
one cruise, during which she proved herself poorly built and' a dull sailer, so she was attached to the
Naval Academy while it was in Newport during the Civil Xafars Wfhen
the Academy returned here. the "Santee" was moored at the end of .
the wharf that now bears her name. At first she was used-.for sea-
manship and gunnery drills. but later her battery was removed. her
masts cut down, and her deck housed over. Since that time, she has
been used as quarters for the Oliicer-in-Charge of Ships, for sundry
marines and hluejackets, and, incidentally, for those of us who have

The Japanese Bell
ON july I2tll, 1854, the Regent of
the Lew Chew Islands presented to Com-
modore M. C. Perry, to be given to the
United States, a huge bronze bell, with a
frame in which to hang it. At that time
Commodore Perry was in command of
JAPANESE BELL. the Asiatic Squadron, and Minister Pleni-
potentiary, charged with opening the ports
of Japan to the traffic of the World. The bell thus represents the goodwill of the Regent toward both
the government and the officer.
It was set up in the Academy grounds in 1858.
The following is a translation of the inscription:

the three worlds,-Heaven, Earth, and l-lades,-might be saved from infernal doctrinesg and therefore
it was that he instructed Shokoku Ansai to frame this inscription:

IN the year 1895, the word went forth that several
new sets of ofhcers' quarters, known officially as Upshur
Row, were at last ready for occupancy. So great was
the haste on the part of the new settlers to take pos-
session, that several large wagons loaded with house-
hold goods were on hand waiting for the opening of SKINNY BUILDING-
the gates. This suggested new settlers in Oklahoma,
so Upshur Row was promptly dubbed "Oklahoma," and the name is most appropriate. This magic
country consists of ten double sets of quarters, finished between 1890 and 1898, and one large house,
finished last summer. used temporarily as the Superintendenfs quarters. The ground itself was
formerly a sandy waste, with a hill in the middle of what is now the parade ground. This ground
was leveled off and sodded, and a beautiful level foot-ball held was formed near the water. NVe who
received Prince Henry will always recollect what luscious mud can be furnished by this field on occa-
sion, and all will remember the field for many and various drills and reviews. At infantry skirmish

tations are based on this organization, and a constant
effort is made to combine the military and naval ideas.
The various battalion and company officers and petty officers are selected by the Superintendent
from the First class for merit along various lines, and the lower classes are apportioned among the
different companies. A commissioned officer is detailed in charge of the battalion as instructorg he has
charge of all drills and parades, and commands at official functions.
Receptions to distinguished visitors and participation in NVashington parades and ceremonies lend
interest to the routine work, and maintain the enthusiasm in this branch of the education.

back of Quarters, called the Old Armory. How vividly does IA - A l
it recall the days of plebedom, with all its endless drills and
"setting-ups." and sometimes when we think of it, a sort of
military coldness comes over us. But this is not for long,
for as the happy, careless plehe days are left behind, so are
the thoughts that came with them, and the Armory becomes
in our minds a different place altogether. Finally, when the
end of First class year comes on, we realize to the full just
what the old building has been to us, how largely it has
helped to brighten the years for us, how many happy evenings OLD ARMORY'
we have spent there. The drills and other necessary evils serve only to make the pleasure and happi-
ness the more real and lasting, and now that we are leaving it we feel that we have much for which
to thank the Old Armory.
Tina row of buildings extending from the Chapel to the main gate, now forming Blake Row, was
built shortly before the Civil VVar. During the war they, like all other available buildings in the
yard, were used as military hospitals. Since then they have been quarters for oliicers attached to the
Academy. lt has been estimated that more trouble has emanated from these eleven buildings than
from any section of equal size in the most densely populated cities. I-lence come those Math. exams.

and the old Seamanship building. The old chief has BLAKE ROW'

his aid in the approaching semi-ans. All candidates remove their hats when in his august presenceg
and many Math. and Skinny burials have laid their tributes of heartfelt gratitude before him.
Especially is this true of the Class of 1903. Being small in numbers and surrounded by many
dangers, we early recognized the necessity of this old god's aid: accordingly, we adopted him into the
class, made his title our motto, and always accorded him the credit for the fact that so many of us
remain to graduate. His memory will long remain green in our hearts, and our sincere wish is that
in the new Academy old Tecumseh may have the honored
place he so richly deserves.
The Tripoli Monument
THIS monument originally stood in the Navy Yard at
XVashington. During the war of 1812-I4 it was disfigured
by the British soldiers, and for years after
the conclusion of the war, bore an inscrip-
tion, authorized by Congress, relating the
incident. After the war the monument was removed to the Capitol grounds where it stood some
time. Finallv, it was again moved, this time to the Naval Academy, and placed where it now stands.
The monument was erected to commemorate the death of Captain Richard Somers and Lieutenants

uncomfortable and out of place. 'l'il1 within the last year the other bench
has been known as "youngster bench,', both Second classmen and youngsters making use of it, but
the class of 1905 was so large that their use of the bench would leave the Second class no room at all.
As there was ample evidence that the entering classes for many years would be as large, the .bench
was turned over to the Second class, and will, henceforth, be its property.
Could the benches tell all that had gone on in their vicinity, they would tell of many schemes
devised, many stories told, and much grumbling done, and at last, if greatly urged, they might even
tell of the moonlight happenings of many "june weeks," but alas! the benches cannot speak.

U. S. S. "INDIANA
until afternoon in order to give the youi
Tina seventh of june, 1902, dawned bright and clear in
this. our good town of Annapolis. The bugler sounding
reveille that morning awoke IQO3 to the realization that their
last practice cruise was at hand. As usual, the uniform was
white,-not the white of fair linen, but the seasick white of
new working clothes, and soon after breakfast numbers of
Uncle Sam's "sailor boys" might be seen wending their way
along the seawall, loaded down under two wash-bags and a sense
of their own importance. At the "Santee' wharf the "Indiana"
crowd embarked on the "Standish" and were taken out to the
"heaven ship," while we others, unconsciously about to enter
on a course--not in heaven-walked up the gang-plank and
disappeared in the maw of the cheesebox.
Saturday and Sunday we lay peacefully at the wharf, but
the dainty tinkling of the alarm gong calling us to g-enel-31
quarters at live o'clock, Monday morning, rudely dispelled any
dreams of peace or comfort in our frail bark. The mighty
"Standish" then towed us out into the river, where we lav
igsters a chance to get their sea legs on. VVhile we lay there,
the "Indiana" got under way and started majestically down the bay. Then it was that one of those
far-famed orderlies furnished by the Marine Corps rushed below and informed the first luff that the
"Indiana" was coming in. Billy looked at him a moment, and then softly
drawled, "All right, if she comes too close, get a boat-hook and shove her
At about four that afternoon, the "Standish" again came alongside and
passed us a line. Then, accompanied by the "Alvarado" and "Sandoval," full
of girls, we were towed out as far as Thomas Point, where the "Standish"
cast us loose, an.d under all sail, amid the waving of dainty handkerchiefs
and cries of, "Good-by, jo-o-o-cko!" we stood down the bay, and anchored
that night above Annapolis.
The five o'clock call to general quarters was simply a foretaste of
future bliss. We tacked ship thirty-one times in one day, we Wore ship, we brought ship to
anchor, we got her under way, we swung ship, we sent down light yards, and
"VVhen six days out from Severn shore, J' y p
McFadden took the bridge,-oh! p . 4.

Ten days did we labor, and on the eleventh day we put to sea but did not T tlrfrl ?'uggf4,N in
get there, as the wind was unfavorable, so we had to anchor off Cape Henry W' ""
Lighthouse. The next day we put to sea, and although at first "all went
smoothly as a marriage bell," the following morning saw many of us casting our bread upon the
waters, and our Omelet and coffee, too. For two days and two nights we tossed, and on the third
day we sighted Montauk Point, and running in to Block Island Sound, we came to anchor in what
we thought to be the roughest spot along the Atlantic coast. i
In Block Island Sound we tacked, wore, and boxhauled. We taught
the youngsters how to heave the lead. We stood wheel watches, and Simp
and Gus stood a lookout from eight in the morning until sundown. Finally,
late in the afternoon of the thirtieth of June, we dropped mudhook in the
shade of the sheltering three golden balls off the Pequot House. Here one
of our number distinguished himself by falling overboard for the first time.
We we1'e most pleasantly entertained in New London, both at the Pequot
House and at the Fort Griswold House, across the river, and we wish now
to thank the managers of both hotels and the members of the New London
Casino. for the many courtesies extended us during our visit. At the Pequot
House, Raudenbush and Ancrum reigned supreme, while "Iocko" held sway
over at the Fort Griswold.
l We must again thank "the girls of the Fort Griswold House" for their
very kind invitation to "two dozen assorted cadets," and for the very good
time that they gave us. "Jocko" discovered a long-lost cousin and moved
his clothes over. Nor can we forget the dance given to the officers and
midshipmen at the Pequot House on the Fourth of July. The dedication
of the different pieces of music struck us as being particularly appropriate,
especially the dedication of the "Reuben and the Maid" to Jonas, and the
dedication of "Humpty-Dun1pty" to Freddy.
l Here it was that McFadden thought he had made a conquest, until the
fair daughter of Israel replied, "Mi: Raudenbush? No, tank you. Ve meet
enough of dose at home."
Five days in New London, and then away to the delights of Narragansett Pier, at long range,
and Newport, from the Perry House. By way of a little excitement we raced the schooner-yacht
"Intrepid" from New London to Point Judith, and had the pleasure of overhauling her and passing
her off Block Islandg then we changed our course and headed out to sea, to give the Newporters a
, S , chance to be disappointed and the navigator a chance to get seasick.
VVe beat about-not the bush, but Block Island, all that afternoon, and
then ran in and anchored off Narragansett Pier, to give the middies a
glimpse of society through a telescope. During the night the Fall River
Line Steamer was rammed by the steamer "Powhattan.', about two hundred
yards from us, but, as Freddy had the deck, all went well,-and the "Pris-
cilla" made port safely.
Stevie visited Jamestown five times in the five days, while the rest of us stormed the heights of
Newport. Our assault, however, was weak. as we lacked the support of the Admiral and his "auto-
mobylef' We visited the torpedo station under the escort of Lieutenant Arker, who "fell us in," and
"fell ns out." XVe learned much about torpedoes and military formations,-about torpedoes from the
officers at the station, and about military formations from the chief engineer of the U. S. P. S. "Chesa-
peake," After learning much and forgetting more, we left Newport one pleasant Monday afternoon
and put to sea on the last leg of our happy trip in Ben Tillman's private yacht.

Wfe cannot say too much in praise of the "Indiana," her captain, her officers, and her crew. VVe
can but thank them from the very bottom of our hearts for the kindness and courtesy with which they
treated us, and assure them that they will never be forgotten by 1903, that our appreciation of their
V X kindness to us is that "true, strong appreciation" that lasts forever. Our
bfi If? cruise in the "Indiana" was, without doubt, the happiest of our three cruises
. under Captain Colahan.
, ii Soon after changing ships, we again paid New 7
6. Ap.-. London a visit. Half a dozen of us went on leave
over Saturday and Sunday, returning to the ship
by way of Shelter Island, where we stayed over
if night. On Shelter Island, Drinks made his long-
fq - distance walking record, and the only H
Q 5 Z T policeman on the island has not recovered ll

Xwggji -if 'T the ship off Orient Point next morning. T
Wfe started for the ship in a naphtha
that the Prospect House must have borrowed from Father Noah, but the chief engineer had
forgotten to provide the naphtha at "Cast loose and provide," so we ran ashore, by way of a little
excitement, and were picked up by a piratical craft bound for Montauk Point. Her skipper, after
much bickering, consented to take us out to the ship for the sum of eight dollars, which Stevie
After a few days at sub-calibre practice. we put to sea for great gun
target practice, and then Portland. In Portland we were, as usual, quite
an object of curiosity. The inhabitants had a hard time deciding whether
we were the Highland Cadets from Montreal or the Boys' Brigade from
Boston. Finally, they learned that we were midshipmen, that the "In-
diana" was a ship, that the eight-inch turrets were not water coolers nor
the thirteen-inch guns telescopes.
Wfe did not visit Old Orchard this year, although many of us had
purchased "der hnest tittin' clodingsi' just for such an occasion, but we
did have the pleasure of doing something equally exciting. Seven of us went ashore with the battalion
of bluejackets to march in the Old Home Day parade. We had the honor of leading the procession,
and were followed by the First Regiment of the Maine National Guard, the Highland Cadets of Mon-
treal, the High School Cadets of Portland. the Maine Naval Reserve,
and the American Cadet Band from Kalunkituckshoddy, Maine. T o
close our engagement in Portland, the ship's base-ball team, composed
of midshipmen and bluejackets, played the soldiers' team at Fort
Preble. XVe have forgotten the score.
Once more we ventured out upon the briny deep, and then on
the afternoon of the third day out we came in sight of the beautiful
entrance to Halifax harbor. Wfe picked up our pilot, and "Tim,"
and ran in through the heavily fortified entrance, past the northwest
arm. and anchored off the Queens wharf.
The next day we went on liberty, and numbers of midshipmen might have been seen driving
about the city, or purchasing furs, hat-pins, and belt-buckles for "someones" at home. One man even
went in for table-cloths. Wfe had the pleasure of meeting a number of the officers at VVellington
Barracks, and mighty good fellows they were, too. The Halifax, City, and Studleigh Clubs extended
the privileges of their rooms to a number of us, and altogether we had the best
time of the cruise in Halifax. Here one of our number fell overboard for the
second time, dressed in Milne's best blouse, trousers, and cap. Halifax harbor is
beautiful. but cold-heastly cold.
Two days before we sailed, the officers and midshipmen gave a hop aboard
ship that was quite a jolly affair, so the social devils said. Anyliow, there was a
great crowd aboard, and everybody wore a happy smile, so we take it for granted
that they had a good time. The steerage mess held a reception in the sick-hay
during the dance.
Everyone, however, will agree that the middies had the time of their lives. In
the expressive language of a fellou'-countryman from Harvard, we "coronated"
. 4 the King. VVe drank toasts to the King and to each of the royal family, to the
President, to England, to our country, to both navies, to both armies, to our hosts,
to ourselves. Then we started over again.
Amid regret at parting with our hospitable friends and joy at starting for
A home, we left Halifax at noon on the 14th of August, and three days later we
passed the capes of the Chesapeake and steamed up to Newport News.
Wfe visited the shipyards at Newport News. VVe went through ship after
ship and shop after shop. VVe inspected the "Missouri, and "Arkansas," and the
Pacific Mail liner "Siberian The evening we came in the band played the
"lVacht am Rhein" in honor of the German cruiser "Vineta," lying at anchor, and
this called forth the remark from one man that "lt's mighty queer that the band
should be playing 'Yale Boola, on Sunday."
Before we close, let us not forget the band, that marvelous collection of virtuosos that delighted
us with weird noises every morning and every evening. Not a member of the band spoke English,
althou h the leader could sa "A e! a e! sairll' But in smite of all this, the Gave us man a half-

hour of pleasure aboard slnp, and ground out the bum notes, if not to the queen's taste, at least to the
The night before we left Newport News the ladies and officers of the gar-
rison at Fortress Monroe gave us a very pleasant dance. The next morning we got
under way and steamed out past Fortress Monroe, around the Tail of the Horse-
shoe, and ua the Ba for home. At about four o'clock we had the mleasure of
passing the "Chesapeake," just in from sea, and waved fondly to her as we passed.
That night we lay at anchor in the bay, and the next morning it was, "All hands,
up anchor for home!"
All day Tuesday we ran up the bay, and at five o'clock we dropped anchor off
dear old Annapolis,-d--d old Annapolis on the first of October, but dear old
Annapolis at the enzl of a cruise. W'e spent that night packing clothes-
bags, and the next morning the "StandishU brought us our trunks.
After being paid off, we dumped our trunks aboard the "Standish,"
tumbled aboard ourselves, and with a sound of mighty cheering for the
finest ship, the finest captain, the finest officers, and the finest crew in
navy, we ended our First class cruise.
Much as we have enjoyed our leave, and much as we wanted to get
home, we shall always look back on our cruise in the "Indiana" as
one of the happiest times of our lives. That we may again have the
pleasure of sailing urider her captain and officers is our most sincere wish.

It came about so suddenly,
'Twas during Seamanshipg
It was a thing most lubberly,
A most colossal slip.
Old Drinks said, "Starboard!" handsomely,
The "Standish" turned to port,
It grazed the "Ches'peake" narrowly,
But cut her booms off short.
The Skipper turned round angrily,
His face was fiery redg
He used his tongue expressively,-
We won't write what he said.
The Shy Middy
A middy and a maiden fair,
Once, on a summer's day,
VVere building castles in the ai1',
And all was bright and gay.
The mid. was innocent and shy, "A girl," the maiden cried aloud,
The maid Cperhapsj was, too, "No, not for anything."
Said he, "I couldn't kiss a girl With arched eyebrows then she said
For anything, could you?" With faint, defiant ring:
"I'd kiss whoe'er I pleased," quoth she,
"If I were but a man."
"You please me much1y," then he said,
And did as all men can.

'55 TRANCE as it may seem to some of the corps of Instructors, athletics at the
U. S. Naval Academy form a most important part of the course. This does not
3 mean to say that they have anything whatever to do with the course officially,-
not at' all. It is entirely a personal matter whether or not one participates in
if ' athletics, but one thing is sure,-that in the Academy, as in all colleges and
5 universities of to-day, there is a strange, indefinable feeling against a man that
5 does not enter into out-door sport of some kind. The feeling is largely one
'ii' of pity, because it is human nature the world over to pity a man who has not
taken advantage of his opportunities. Each year we learn to appreciate more
and more the chance that is presented to us here, and to realize the true worth of the sports themselves.
The advantage of a thorough "course in athletics" to a man in the naval service can scarcely be
overestimated. Wlien we bring ourselves to think of some of the qualities' it tends to bring 'out,-
coolness, pluck, perseverance, strength,-we realize at once what an important part it plays in the making
of a practical naval officer.
As in the other things of life, the spirit with which these sports are taken up makes the greatest
difference in the result. In all athletics at the Naval Academy, especially in foot-ball and base-ball,
there is exhibited that wonderful "Navy spirit" that has won so many West Point games. But
closely related, yet distinct from this, is the truest sort of "sporting spirit," if one may be allowed to
use a niost apt slang expression. A man who plays foot-ball here runs tl1e risk of ruining l1is whole
life, for not o11ly might l1e he disqualified O11 account of injuries received, but l1e sta11ds a 1110512 ex-
cellent chance of being declared unsatisfactory i11 his studies, a11d it is a well-known fact that l11Cl11lJC1'S
of the foot-ball team stand lower in tl1eir class duri11g tl1e season tl1a11 at any other ti111e of the year.
This would, of course, be of l11l1lO1' in1portance ill an ordinary university, but standing at the Naval
Academy is of f71'f'lllCl7'y iinportzance in after life, and when a 111lCiSi'li1-111121.11 ru11s the risk of losing it,
every consideration should u11doubtedly he given him by those CO1ll1CCt6Cl witl1 the Academy.

jun , physical strength and hardihood. Muscular development was the hrst essential quality of
a successful player, and brute force was depended upon to win laurels for a team. As
years passed, the devotees of the game began to realize that cunning and science could be
introduced to replace the former muscular requirements, and through
M, ggi? the untiring efforts of hundreds of enthusiasts, foot-ball, as played now,
i7'T""i stands pre-eminent as the most seientihc branch of American athletics. It
is a game requiring the absolute command of the reasoning faculties. To be successful
a player must be able to reason and divine his opponent's every move so as to check it, he
must not only demonstrate his physical superiority over the opposing player, but he must
be able to outwit him and have every maneuvre so planned that he can carry it out on
This season has been full of surprises for the Navy. Our first game, as usual,
was with Georgetown. Owing to superior team work and better condition they were ANAVY MAN-
able to defeat us by two safeties. The Saturday following we met the Princeton team and played a
creditable game for such an early date, being defeated by the score of IO to 0. Lehigh brought down
a sturdy team which was able to play us a tie game, 5 to 5. The biggest surprise of the season
awaited us on October 22d, when we defeated, for the second time, the University of Pennsylvania by
a score of IO to 6. Dickinson, our next opponents, played a very weak team, as our line and backs
were badly crippled. The defeat was not so bitter as it would have been had the team been in con-
dition. The remainder of the season will bring us against Pennsylvania State, Lafayette, Bucknell,
and Columbia. All these games areplayed in preparation for the final test on Franklin Field, Phila-
delphia, on November 29th, when the Army and Navy will meet in the eighth annual contest to decide
the superiority of the representative teams of the Black, Gold and Gray, and the glorious Old Gold
and Navy Blue.

' S far as can be cletcrminccl at this early flate, thc material for the crew next year is
A gootl, very good, anml the important point now is to iincl a man to clevelop it.
' U,-an 'XX The woncleriul success of Cornell's cights at lfoughlceepsie tluring the last
,l 7 two years warrants the afloption of her methods in rowing by the manage-
N,-mp, ment of our crew. .Xccorclinglyy every effort is being marle to secure a coach
if I who has been a member of a Cornell crew. Shoulcl we fail in this, however,
we shall not be at a loss, as linsign Timmons, Captain ol' the crew of 1900, ancl generally consiclerecl
the best oarsman that ever pullecl for the Navy. will be orclerecl here in charge of the rowing squad.
Races are heing arranged with Georgetown, Yale, ancl l'em1sylvania only: lularvarcl being exclutletl
from our scheflnle this year, as three races are consiclerecl enough for one Season.
The prospects are most encouraging. A call on the Fourth class, last spring, brought out some
splenrlicl green material, from which an excellent eight was chosen. They continuefl the work during
the summer, and when September came around they showed up in extremely good form. In addition
to this "plebe" eight and the September part of the Hpleheu class, next year's coach will have an ex-
cellent seconcl crew from which to clraw, so that with much diligence on his part and conscientious
work on the part of the oarsmen, he shoulcl he able to put a winning crew on the Severn next Spring.
To this end the crew must receive the unanimous support of the battalion and all persons connected
with the Academy, who should hear in mind that it is incumbent upon sailors to excel on the water,
and professional pride alone should incite all midshipmen to Work harder for supremacy in rowing
than in the other branches of athletics.

NVITII the defeat of West Point in base-ball last May, the Naval Academy terminated a successful
season. In that game all the players showed that steadiness which is so essential to satisfactory base-
ball playing, and which had been somewhat unsuccessfully sought earlier in the season. The team
was ably coached by Mr. Arthur Hillebrand and Mr. VVilliam G. Clarke, gentlemen who not only know
the game, but who can develop all that a player has in him. Their services have been sought for next
season, which, it is hoped, will be even more successful than the preceding one, thus progressively carrying
out the base-ball work started in 1901, the Hrst year for some time in which this branch of athletics received
generous support. In order to have a good season next year, the battalion must show its interest, all
men who can play ball must come out for the team, and the team must have sufficient time for practice.
It is taken for granted that the players themselves will show that pe1'sonal interest and enthusiasm with-
out which there can never be success in athletic games.
XV ith the graduation of the Class of IQO2 the base-ball team lost VVeaver, captain and catcher, and
a sure hitter 5 Childs, shortstop g Staton and Read, fieldersg--all good men. With the graduation of
the Class of IQO3 the team loses Rauclenbush, the crack pitcher, Smith, second base 5 and Anderson,
fielder, leaving two old team players, Bassett and Pegram, and a number of experienced men who
played on the Hustlers, together with all the possibilities of the Class of 1906.
Owing to the energy of Manager Brillhart, the schedule for next season is probably the best base-
ball schedule tlie Navy has ever had, and includes games with Lafayette, Pennsylvania, Cornell, Lehigh,
Dickinson, Yale, lfVest Virginia, Georgetown, Pennsylvania State, I-Iarvard, and West Point. The
game with VVest Point will be played at Annapolis, May 16th.
It is hoped that the coming season will be a fitting continuation of past seasons.

Here you know and feel that it is not a question of the perseverance,
' 1 X t ,
pluck, strength, and endurance of another man who may happen to be at
your side, but entirely a question of your own. To those who know it and
he said, hut to those who have never experienced the feeling, or, rather, the
let me say that there is nothing to compare with it. just to feel the spring
of a good track, the delightful coolness of the air as it rushes past your face, to hear your spikes
take in the cinder with that thrilling, "crunching" sound, to know that victory or defeat depends en-
tirely on you, and that the chance is yours, and yours alone, to win out man for man, not team for
team,-to know and feel these things should be enough to induce any one to make at least an effort
love it, nothing need
mixture of feelings,
for the track team.
Unfortunately, however, the team has never been a strong one. This is, of course, due to the fact
that there are no meets with outside teams, which, as anyone can readily understand, is the very
life of any form ofiathletics. For this reason there is but little encouragement given the track, and
,....,-............. , ...... ..,. - , ,W IW
it has always been taken up more for the pure love of the thing itself than with any idea of winning.
Now this is, theoretically, the true, sportsmanlike way to look at any branch of out-door sport, but the
trouble is that it doesn't last, doesn't stand that very critical and exacting test of neglect.
Arrangements were made last year for a meet with two other teams, and the track received a
little more encouragement than usual. A team of three men was sent to enter the johns Hopkins
in-door games, and they made a most creditable showing. Later, a meet was arranged with a team
from the Seventh Regiment, New York National Guard, but owing to the early graduation of the
First class this was canceled. The regular Field day was held on April 19, 1902, and though the num-
ber of entries was small, one record was broken, some very fair times were made, and, considering
many drawbacks, it was a most successful affair.
VVhat the track needs is competition. If, for the next year or two, a few meets could be had
with outside colleges, to give a little confidence and encouragement to the team, and if then a meet
could be arranged with West Point, a team would be developed worthy of the Naval Academy, some
records would be made that we would be proud to compare with those of the intercollegiate games,
and the Athletic Association would feel more than repaid for whatever expenditure of thought, trouble,
and money it may have made.

Fencing at the U. S. N. A.
ERI-IAPS the only form of athletics to reach the distinction of an art at the Naval
1, Academy is fencing. Like other arts, however, it requires a'long and tedious early
training, and in the beginning is most discouraging. The monotony of lesson after
lesson is broken only by occasional bouts, and two long years of this before one ever
W has the chance even to watch a West Point fencing team, is enough to try the patience
'ii of any "middy.', But it pays, it more than pays. One meet with West Point, one
i t crossing of the blades with the Army, one feeling of superiority over them, one thought of five
bouts won out of nine, and one is repaid many times over for all the monotony, worry, trouble,
Q and discouragement.
In many ways the past season was a most successful one and marked the beginning of a
new era in the art of fencing, not only here but all over the country. The first meet was held
qlm on the 15th of February, in the old gymnasium, with a team from the New York Fencers'
Club. In the strict sense of the word, it was really not a meet at all, because the question
of winning was purely a secondary one. Our opponents were some of the best fencers in the
country, who had come to teach us many of the larger as well as the smaller points, and that
ff? night we learned them, and learned them well, as only good, kind Mrs. Experience can teach
i them. Out of sixteen bouts the Navy won seven, but, altogether, the evening was one of the
most interesting and enjoyable of the entire winter.
The next meet was held in VVashington, with the Fencers' Club of that city. The affair
J was made quite a society event, and there were present many members of the various legations
and embassies represented in the Capitol City. The President himself hono1'ed the occasion
with his presence, and took a lively interest in the bouts. Here, too, our opponents were the
7 - --Y- WW- ------M Tri., ,. .. , . .. se-Y
victors, but this defeat was almost as beneficial as was the first one, and served to put spirit and life
into the next few weeks when we were training for the intercollegiate meet in New York.
This took place in the New York Athletic Club on the 14th and 15th of March, and was, as
one can imagine, fha event of the SCZISOI1. The team, composed of Midshipmen Lannon fcaptainj,
W'hitten, and Rowcliff, with Midshipmen Simmers and Gatewood as substitutes, was sent up to New
York in charge of Lieutenant Ziegemeier, U. S. N. Colonel Robert M. Thompson, that fairy god-
father of all midshipmen, had made all the arrangements for our stay. As all midshipmen know, this
meant that we had the very best that New York could afford, and some few of them, at least, are not
unaware of the fact that it can afford many little dainties and one or two larger ones.
Besides the Naval Academy and West Point, there were represented Columbia, Cornell, Harvard,
Yale and Pennsylvania, each having a team of three men. The fencing began. Friday night at half-
past eight o'clock, and it was half-past twelve before each man had fenced half his number of bouts.
At the end of that time the Navy held only fourth place. The next day the fencing continued from
three o'clock until half-past five in 'the afternoon, and when night came on the Army led by eight
bouts, the Navy tied Cornell for fourth place, and each man had three bouts to fence off.
Witli the exception of the W'est Point game last year, the light that last night was one of the most
wonderful exhibitions of Navy pluck and grit ever witnessed. The Navy had in view two objects,
to win the meet and retain the fencing trophy won the year before, and to defeat the Army. The
relative importance of the two we will leave to the reader. The first was now impossible, and the
second most improbable. There were five bouts yet to fence with the Army, and in order to win
the necessary five out of nine, the Navy must win three of these five, and win them from a team that
had, by that time, beaten the team of every other college.
Rowcliff won the first bout with Breckenridge, and during the entire four minutes but one touch
was made. Then Wliitteii and Lannon both lost to Strong. Rowcliff then won a beautiful bout
from Strong, and this left the score a tie. Everyone's nerves were by this time strung to the highest
pitch, and when Lannon and Nichols walked to the platform for the last bout the entire audience
appeared to draw in one deep breath and to hold it until the bout was over. Men were too excited
to applaud, and women to laugh. It was splencliclly won, and the Navy, man for man, team for team.
had beaten the Army. Whitten tied with Strong, of West Point, and Clark, of Columbia, for the
individual championship, and the Navy finished a very close third with thirty-four bouts, Columbia
being second with thirty-five. It was a beautiful night's work and one to be proud of.
Then came the most lasting feature of the season. Thanks to Colonel Thompson, there was held
in Annapolis on the Ioth of May a meeting of two delegates from each of the above-mentioned uni-
versities, and four members of the New York Athletic Club. Dr. I-Iammond, the well-known authority
on fencing matters in this country, was also present. As a result of this meeting, there was organized
here The Intercollegiate Fencing Association, and the following officers elected: Clark, of Columbia,
Presidentg Gray, of West Point, Vice-President: and Roberts, of Harvard, Secretary-Treasurer. A
constitution and by-laws were agreed upon, and rules were made governing future contests. The
meeting was in every way a success, and when it was over, fencing was, for the first time, established
on its proper footing among the universities and colleges of the country.
In closing this article, let me give full credit to Professor Corbesier and his two most able assist-
ants. It is heart-breaking work,-this making of a fencing team. this constant telling of the same
faults, correcting of the same positions, and when in the end there is developed a team such as last
year's, one cannot speak too warmly in praise of the man that made it.

One little room between us,
One little cup of woe,
And every day has seen us
Thinking of when we go.
In trouble, pain, and sorrow,
In all the ups and downs,
Sometimes when to-morrow we
Held naught but Fortune's frowns.
We've been good friends together Thus let it be forever,
In sunshine and in shade, This friendship tried and true
In every sort of weather And may naught come to sever
That ever God hath made. The bond between us two.

.mfm A'g'1j'f HE Naval Academy Choir has always been considered a joke, and probably always
il will be so considered, but in spite of this the middies who constitute the choir
,fl 2 3 1 think it a rather serious undertaking. Doubtless, anyone feels serious in
W ll attempting a task beyond his reach, and perhaps it is a feeling of this sort that
y ,,,l W' makes a member of the choir pick up a sheet of music with fear and trembling.
Unfortunately, this fear and trembling always go to his voice.
Yet, in spite of all this, the choir is a hard-working organization. Every Friday a new "Te
Deum" is practiced, and the same old favorite QPD is sung on Sundays. In fact, it has been silently
agreed upon that though any "Te Deum" is good enough to keep the voice in training on week-days,
there is only one worthy to be sung on the Sabbath. Then there comes the question of "Glorias,"
and though there are myriads of them lying a1'ound the organ-loft, the old "Rough House" always
seems to come out on top.
But it must not be thought from all this that the choir doesn't have any rest at all. Perhaps a
few quotations from the "Choir Constitution" will acquaint the reader with the inside facts better than
a score of volumes:
HART. I.-T his organization shall be called the choir 3 not because,-as the name
would imply,-its members can sing. but because they stand in front of the organ at
HART. II.--No man who can sing or read music shall belong to the choir. Voices
shall not be admitted to the organ-loft, nor shall any man who can keep time or articulate
a true note attempt to affiliate himself with the organization.
NJXRT. V.-If, during the 'rendering of a selection,' a man finds that a certain note
is beyond his range, he shall sound in its stead any note or semi-tone that may be in
the octave immediately below that note. If unable to do this, he shall keep quiet. If,
during the 'rendering of a piece,' a member becomes weary, he is at liberty to cease his
efforts, and in the event of everyone's ceasing at once the congregation shall not feel
grateful to an unseemly extent.
"ART, IX.-No one but 'jocko' Brisbin shall yell, and he only shall be allowed to
sing four parts at once.
HART. XI.-The plebe members of the choir shall, in order of rank Cvoicesj, provide
a box of cough-drops each Sunday. Every cough-drop shall be divided into four parts,
and each member shall take one part before the sermon and the other three parts after
the benedictionf' ,
The true state of affairs in the choir has never been unveiled to the public gaze before, and it is
hoped that the organization will meet with the appreciation that is its due.

HT Young Menis Christian Association at the Naval Academy holds a unique position among
the associations of the country. The position is, perhaps, a discouraging one, too, for the
X it tunes, as though this work would forever remain in one rut and never have a chance to
1 'lhe avowed object of the Y. M. C. A is to train not only the spirit, but the body and
mind as well. Here, though not purely religious, the organization' puts forth its best efforts
in trying to make a man better morally, perhaps mentally, but surely not physically. The life and
duties of the Academy afford ample opportunities for mental and physical training, so that an i1n-
partial observer would say that it would be folly for the association to attempt anything in these lines.
It is to be regretted that.many members of the battalion are not impartial observers, however, and
when they see that this association is so different from all others they have known, they say, "Oh!
well, it can't amount to much," and they don't give it a fair trial.
It is to be regretted, too, that so many officers apparently forget the association when they

Academy regulations are bound to set some limit on the work of the association, and it seems,

,graduate from the Academy. It is all well and good for the organization to have its good effect
upon a man during his four years here, but it is the effect it has on him when he graduates and
enters the service that really amounts to something. The object of the association is to prepare a man
iin its way for the service, just as the Academy course prepares a man in its way.
It was hoped that Octoher would find the association in the most flourishing condition of its
existence, and such would have, doubtless, been the case had not the President, Nelson. resigned from
the Navy, and so set everything' back. It showed the eHect of the work of a single man and what a
loss he was. A new President was elected, and the association had practically a new start. It was
a good start, and it is to be hoped that the year will end as successfully as it began.

I thank you, but, just wait. For accidents
This day seems fated, and, from what you've said,
You take me for a friend-don't blush so red,
You're not alone, another here has made
The same mistake. And then, besides, you've paid
A pretty compliment. That should assure
Some kindness, so your break I will endure.
-You are, indeed, most kind. And yet, I'd swear
That you were she, in each respect no pair
Of sisters more alike could be. 'Twould seem
That Nature, having made the one, was loth

And merely has assumed this other name.
XIAN BUREN.-Oli, no! I don't think that. 'Tis merely chance
They look so much alike. Could she advance
I-Ier purposes by coming here disguised?
She surely knows she would be recognized.
BRADFORD.-IH spite of all, I'll bet she is the same.

Only a Tooth
Once at skinny recitation,
There was caused much agitation
In the section room of Mr. I-Ioogiewirth.
All their under lips were biting,
VVhile one middy was reciting,
And this middy was the cause of all the mirth.
O'er his face appeared commotion,
Like a storm upon the ocean,
And disfigured it most muchly from the truth,
just a sneeze, then came a-leaping
From his mouth a thing worth keeping.

hour as only middies can, the landlubbers had been tempted to enjoy a sail in their
little yachts and catboatsg even the ship's cat was lazily blinking at the sinking sun. But one poor
human was not of these. Sad-faced and sorrowful, with shoulders well down, and rolling like a
steamer in a gale, a middy on lookout duty paced up and down. diligently scanning the horizon for
a chance to impress his efficiency on the skipper. Yet nnho1'n puns crowded his brain, and great was
the agony in store for his long-suffering classmates. Suddenly he sta1'ted. A flash of intelligence
and enthusiasm suffused his countenance. Far, far in the distance was a. sail. He crouched low,
glaring at the unsuspecting stranger, his face was drawn with lines denoting his earnestnessg his hips
and shoulders nearly met. At last his long-hoped-for chance had come. He finally decidedg taking
a long breath, he braced himself, threw back his head, and in a loud, ringing voice passed that hail

Q L ' j
HERE were those, outside of the class, of course, who were very skeptical as
to whether or not there would he such a thing as a class supper. "Just
wait," said they, "until the ships get lmaclc to ."Xnnapolis, and everyone will he
so anxious to get home that scarcely a thought will he given to the supper,
and one and all will say. 'I haven't time to wait over.' U Wfell, it happened
that "one and all" said no such thing. There were some who were obliged
to be absent, but it was to their great regret, and they assured us that their
thoughts were with us. Unfortunately for them, their thoughts couldn't eat, drink, and he merry
Seven o'clock was the oliicial hour of the supper. though the committee didn't really have such
early expectations. lndeed, the members of said committee didn't arrive themselves till somewhat late.
The decorations, floral and Hagal, not human, were heautifully and tastefully arranged. The
walls were draped with American and Academy flags, while in the windows were palms and other
green plants. The table was of a horseshoe shape. the seats lmeing on the outside only. The inside
was covered with orange and white asters and hydrangeas, making the class colors stand out promi-
nently. ln the centre of the table were silver candelahra with orange shades, and bon-bons and other
delicacies in trays and boxes appropriately decorated. At each place was a handsome ZJOHll0IL7LfI:'7'6 and
a menu. The most that can be said for the menu cards is that their appearance was only equaled
by their contents.
Among the first to arrive was Rauden McFaddenbush, who wished to arrive early in order to
make sure that he would receive proper nourishment in the way of brown bread and Force. By
seven-thirty nearly all the expected ones had assembled. VValker, Brisbin, and Smith were rather late,
saying that they had lost their respective collar-buttons. Giles and McCracken were a little behind
time. Indeed, it is to be feared that they found the oysters cold.
What would a dinner be without toasts? Well, whatever it would be, the class didn't want it to
be, so they had five of them. In speaking for "The Class," Cooke touched on the subject of class
spirit, and said all the proper things to make the fellows pat themselves on the backs with righteous
pride. Everyone began to realize that a class supper was well worth while.
Of cou1'se, there was a toast to a "Navy Girl," who is, by far, the most important factor in a mid-
shipman's existence. Upon Stephen Clegg Rowan fell the stupendous honor of responding to this toast,
and he did so most gallantly. His eagle eyes swept the expectant audience for a moment, and then,
rising slowly upon his toes, he burst forth into a torrent of witticisms, the brilliancy of which made the
electric lights feel pale. He spoke of the ideal Navy Girl and how best to approach her, and so well
known was his wisdom on the subject that his listeners were spellbound, drinking in every word ,of
the great man. Round upon round of applause rang out as he took his seat, his face wreathed in
smiles. The toastmaster had noticed that Steve had seemed nervous up to the time of this, his maiden
attempt, but he evinced his usual sfwoivf fain' and acquitted himself like a veteran.
After such a merry toast as Rowan's, it were well to think of something serious, so Brillhart arose
to respond to the toast, "The Navy." Running his fingers feverishly through his lengthy locks and
assuming the most tragic posture in his repertoire, he. spoke in deep, well modulated tones ,of what
he, in his long experience, had encountered in the Navy.
Perhaps his remarks on cruises were a trifle discouraging, but it was known that his acquaintance
only extended to practice cruises, so no one felt very blue.
lx :Y 2- - f
Even Brillhart's tragic air and more tragic words could not 1nar the joyousness of the occasion.
From tragedy we passed to comedy, and VValley Smead, in his best brogue, answered the toast, "Our
Bilgersf' It was, of course, sad to think that anyone had found it necessary to bilge, yet Smead
didn't seem to feel it in the least, and he made even Brillhart pucker his lips into a smile. Most
-marvelous of all was the fact that Milne saw through the jokes before breakfast, and that alone
vouches for the quality of Smeadis Irishisms.
Then, as the hour grew late, all naturally thought of that which lay nearest their hearts,-Sep-
tember leave. They had toasted Navy Girls and bilgers, the former of which, at least, were, perhaps,
beyond reach. Yet here was leave, a much-coveted article, in their very grasp. No wonder, then, that
there was enthusiasm at the announcement of the toast. Poor Brisbin couldn't hear himself speak when
he essayed to speak, nor could anyone hear what he said when he did speak, so fast were the tears of
emotion flowing from his eyes and choking his speech. He 1nade the speech of the evening, four
others excepted, in spite of his troubles. So much was everyone affected by his words that the desire
to go on leave became irrepressible, and shortly afterward the merry band disbanded, and the class
supper of 1903 was but a memory,--a memory, however, that will always dwell with the fellows as
signalizing one of the finest evenings of their lives.

i l Promptly at 8.15 the curtain went up and disclosed two rows of grinning black
faces. That the ffrins were Jainted did not detract from their realism. Of course,
there was a middle man and end men, and men between the middle man and end men. The end men
were dressed in bed-ticking, the middle man was dressed in his own clothes, and the others were
dressed in clothes belonging to unsuspecting men who were about to graduate. It is a deplorable fact
that those same clothes had to be "cleaned and pressed" before ever being worn by their lawful owners.
The minstrel part of the performance was undoubtedly the best part of the performance. The
songs were "catchy" and had just the right sort of a swing. Of course, there were two or three
sentimental songs, to please Lamar and Venus. Some old jokes were repeated, so that Jang could
have one more try. Many hits at ofhcers and midshipinen combined to make one great big hit with
the audience, and "part oneu was voted a success.
The "Court Martial" was nothing but a series of thrusts at people, but so cleverly were they
made that even the nnintelligible thrusts were appreciated. The imitations were so real that the officers
who were honored QPQ by being mimicked were terribly startled by the thought that at last they had
been brought face to face with themselves as others saw them. The ladies, typical of three distinct
walks of life, were beyond praise. Many were the stage-struck youths in the audience that night. As
for costumes! Enough to say that they were heavenly creations by XVorth.
Much interested in the preparations for the show, Professor I-Iermann had consented early in the
year to come to life long enough to make the audience feel foolish. His brilliant achievements reached
a climax when he removed egg after egg from a single mouth. Every midshipman there felt that the
battalion should at once take measures to rent that mouth for the ensuing cruise. Evidently, the plan
fell through, for the cruise produced no eggs, save detail eggs. "Omelets," you say? No, that recipe
calls for leather.
The success of the performance was only equaled by its brilliancy, which was largely due to the
presence of so many stars. But the shining lights of the occasion were to be found in the constellation
of IQO3, consisting of the inimitable Dutch, the irrepressible Nedcly, the irresponsible jocko, and the
irreproachable Blake. And so the minstrel show ended, but was not forgotten. It was not a problem
play, nor yet a play with a moral, but it afforded something to think about, and, what is more, some-
thing to sing about during the cruise, and we all know what a cruise would be without a song to
cheer us on our way.

we are more than satisfied with the treat-
ment accorded us by the officers, every one
of whom seems to be laboring under the
delusion that cadets are gentlemen.
"Jokey" cannot lose his early training at
the Academy, and helps to show by con-
trast the natural whiteness of the Naval
Officer until corrupted by associations.
"Red Mike" has won all hearts by his
touge and debonnair manners, and the exec.
has shown a new way to cuss, in English,
We have troubles always. Mike, the everlastlng subject of our torment, has developed a genuine
case of ping-pong knee, aggravated by disappointment at not being elected President of the Whist Club
and he goes home four dear Annapolis homej on Thursday. Monk and Dusty had their second
weekly excursion ashore, and reports state that the leading attraction of our menagerie lost his cap, the
end of his tail, and all further recollection of proceedings. Venus and Met are
having a close race for society leader, having distanced Leahy in this first quarterg
we all hope for an exciting finish. Hearts were broken and tears shed as the
"Standish', bade us a fond farewell, having made seven positively last appearances,
and one girl being on every trip. iWhether the cadet with a fondness for light
novels who was shirking on the flying bridge had anything to do with it, I really
cannot say. Leo? Poor Pope 5 we all love him and delight to put up with any
little German eccentricities, bred in the bone and coming out on the cruise: but the
time he ate too hearty a supper and dreamed reveille so realistically that he made us
all lash and carry at five in the morning, we decided that he went too far. A
moderate treatment of Navy bump, locally applied where needed.
was an excellent preventive against repetition. His indignation at
our gentle insinuation that the "Vineta', took in her colors during
the rain for fear water would make them run, was truly pathetic,
-most of his troubles Qand jokesj are.
The sportiness of the crowd is alarming. Leo set up the
soda for six beloved classmates. True, he did not invite themg
they sat down, finished hrst, thanked him, and walked outg but
that cannot detract from true German open-heartedness. It seems
as if the only true pleasure derived by our Hans's roomie was
when he engaged the Dutch sentry in an animated discussion of
their natural beverage and dishg his beaming countenance would,
if used as a lighthouse, have enabled even our navigator to hit
the capes the first try.
The smokers' union has organized. Willie Davis' recent investment in cigars and his subsequent
failure to manage one is largely responsible. All our pets gather aft in the wicker chairs Qkindly
donated by the captain for the occasionj and start the Ubonsl' going.
Venus's hydrokineter does not work very well, or else his Hues need sweeping, for
about the time that steam forms, his safety-valve lifts, and there is one vacant chair.
Monk .does bravely, unless the quality of cabbage -disagrees with his previous efforts.
He has not yet acquired that gracefully careless air of Pedee, who handles the deadly
weed as if it were only an innocent fire-cracker. His methods of smoking would do
credit to the second division fire engine, but since he is improving, let us forbear to
Our only kick so far is that word has been passed officially that "greasing" in
note-books will not be tolerated on this cruise. Willie gave his characteristic "Damn!"
about three times, and limited his sketch to the forecastle, anchors, gear, hatches, and
dog-house with cover removed. We all hope his self-denial will receive its due reward.
There is not a shirk aboard, or, to express it better, no one shirks more
than the others. Poor Andy cannot get away from his conscience and sense
of duty, but with K. Brown and Ryden for instructors, we hope for improve-
ment. One meal formation we had enough of the First class to muster all
the divisions, and poor Dick 'l'-- took to sick-bay for a week. Needless to
say, we never repeated the shock.
The poor old ship is haunted. I hear all kinds and conditions of voices
I calling each other, and answering from deck to deck: "There is just one
thing about this gun I don't quite understand, that I would like to have
you explain, and that is-" "Turn out along here! Don't you suppose I've
been here long enough to know reveille when I hear it?" "Now, Iim not

train are you going to take home?" And every now and then, that old mournful cry of

JULY 3d, 1902.-Again the spirit moves, and I resume my tale. Our social whirl at Old Point
is worthy of mention, both on account of the splendid time we all enjoyed, and on account of one or
two "devils" who fully upheld the reputation of cadets as "killers" Leahy, master-of-ceremonies-in-
chief, and Andy, promoter of the expedition, seemed ever present, and their official duties sat heavy
upon them. Y
Rumors at last came true. For three long years I have heard rumors and rumors on every pos-
sible subject imaginable, from the four years' bill to the prospective uniform, and never before has
one came true, but we did go to New York. We had the worse half of the cruise shoved onto us,
with its deferred hell and the possibility of a late start on leave, and
it certainly did us good to write to the ffcliesapeakev people, giving
full details of Broadway and Coney Island. Maybe we laid it on a
bit, but it was all in a good cause. After a twenty-day siege of sea
routine, a cheering letter telling of the happy moments passed by their
dear classmates will, doubtless, smooth out the wrinkles from many a
brow, or, at least, we 'wrote in that hope. But the trip to, from,
and in New York more than compensates for any possible advantages
the others possess in choice of halves. Albany, Poughkeepsie, and
Philadelphia were drawn upon for our amusement, and, while the Four
Hundred gave nothing special at Sherry's, still there were a good many impromptu "at homes" at
other restaurants. Those attending report the usual good time. Theatres, parks, trolleys, carriages,
elevated and suburban trains were all taxed for our amusement, and we all regret that our last chance
to make that port on a cadet cruise has passed. W
Shades of A. W.! but what would some of our Academy friends say if they knew how like
gentlemen we are treated. We are even consulted regarding the best methods of procedure, and "Red
Mike" swears he is "no d-d Naval Academy oflicesrf' We are ordered not to grease, told to ask
questions, and allowed every privilege we ask for. Gradually the smoking holes are being found, and
the whist clubs had a serious set-back to-day, but on the roof-garden all is perfect bliss. Twice a

JULY 17th, 1902.-Shelter lsland has always been a favorite resort
with cruising middies, and 1902 was no exception. Twenty went in a
launch party and enjoyed the privilege of a day ashore. VVhat. with
the cafe, the dinner, and the hop, if we could desire more, it could only
be more of the same kind. The burden of authority rested heavily on
our Admiral, and his naturally buoyant and pleasing disposition was con-
cealed beneath his official cares. VVe all hope that with familiarity he
may acquire contempt.
Target practice: least said, soonest mended. VVith the six-pounder
broadsides we did excellent work, completely riddling the moving target.
All of us take credit for the good shots, and there are few to contradict.
Then Newport. Jamestown was not yet open. A little trip to the Yale-Harvard regatta was
very interesting and amusing to the parties concerned, and they also saw the races. Newport is a
great place, but fun is certainly a negative quantity, unless the luxury of a few days' leave be in-
dulged in. '
Then came more Gardinerls Bay. Kibbee and McNair furnished jokes for the wardroom with
their pretended trips for milk. Finally, their real object was discovered, when they were seen playing
croquet with Ruth and Rose, the remnants of a huge lemon pie lying suggestively near. Poor
Koeh! He has never forgiven himself for that lost opportunity.
On a bright
Friday 1TlO1'1'1l11g we piped down scrub and wash clothes and got under way. By the
of Lord High Harry, we landed our mud-hook within about a mile and a half of
where we intended to, and then the fun began. Hops and dinners were too
numerous for comfort, and most ot us were glad to get to sea for a rest. The
Pequot House, with its regulation allowance of belles and beauties, was very kind to
us, inviting us to the Saturday night hop and giving us a special one on Monday.
The hop given on board was a glorious success from our point of view, and we were
told that others enjoyed it also. Lehigh acted as conductor on our special ferry, and
Kibbee as reception committee and promoter of general good feeling. The way he
endeavored to p1'o1note Venus's widow was truly a shame, but tl1en no damage was
done by him. How badly Venus broke, smashed, and otherwise shatte1'ed her fragile
heart! Oh, Constancy, thy name is Venus! for verily our human callipers never left
her, and even secured leave that he might sit ashore with his mother and-his widow.
Poor Wiz, his head was badly whirled on the subject of widows.
Conscience is an odd thing, and Andy's the oddest of all. Upon occa-
sion, it will stretch and allow him any desired privilege, but only on occasion!
Other people stand from under, and woe be unto the Second classman of the
Watch who waketh him! Rate is an odd thing, but handy when needed.
She ran in and anchored some distance from us, so that they could have one
last crack at getting under way and coming to anchor, as well as to give us
an idea of what we had coming. Several parties of various classes went

Our pleasure and appreciation of our happy cruise at last took definite form, and m
our half of the First class celebrated by holding a regular old-fashioned country
dinner, with pie and cake accompaniment. Rag-time style and white working clothes
were the orders, the only restriction being that no one was allowed to even mention the
"Chesapeake," No shop talk allowed. "Hoogie never" spoke and seldom looked around
from start to finish, but the execution due to his efforts was marvelous. Poor lad!
he regretted his industry many times in succeeding hours. On our way to and from
the dock, we went by the "Chesapeake" and gave them our sentiments in songs
such as 'Tm going to live anyhow till I die," and "I'm coming, Old Black Jonas."
Y ou can see the menu for the list of good things, but
no idea of quantity or quality could be so gainedg see us for that.

JULY 20th, 1902.-Twenty-foui' hours aboard and everybody alive yet. As a starter, we do not have
to cover the names on our jumpers, and we can paint over the ones on the pocketsg so far, so good,
and some chance of better. It was a little odd to uncover, have four different officers inspect from
head to foot, order hair-cuts galore, and discuss shoe-shines, but as to official intercourse, nothing more
could be asked. They are not the same sort of men the "Indiana's" officers are, butithey have been
to the Academy and have seen cadets, or rather middies in bulk. As a consequence, we feel rather
under the restraint and nagging influence of nurses than like passed midshipmen serving under friends.
As a rule, Mike and Leo are the first to furnish amuse1nent for the bunch. But Mike, poor soul!
is shut up in his room at Annapolis with a ping-pong knee, and Leo has been so frequently dis-
cou1'aged that he keeps still. He is in on this to some extent, but Andy is
the principal conspirator. Andy, Leo, Leahy, Kibbee, Jang, McNair, and a
few others had the prudence and foresight to cover the extra names on their
jumpers, but neglected to cover the pockets. Cadet-like, they did. the thing
they did not need to do, and did not do the thing they ought to have done,
and the joke is upon them. Let us rejoice.
I wonder if we will be as glad to leave this ship as the others were, in
their faces and actions, in every move they made and every word they said,
they showed the love they had for the ship and the work on it. We don't

BUzzA1zD's BAY, August 2d.-Of all the miraculous surprises of our lives, the good time in New
Bedford was the greatest. It may be that we enjoyed our fun the more since it was totally unexpected.
After a pleasant run from Block Island on a Sunday with the wind aft, we entered the bay and
harbor, anchoring near the "Puritan', and the "Peoria," not far from our old camping ground of
two years ago. As a little pastime, we sent down light yardsg and the next day took advantage of a
heavy fog to send down topgallant masts. It was not so much work, in fact, would like to do it
oftener. The First class does not object to work as long as others do it all.
Of course, the big event was Mrs. Berry's "residence dance," as it was called, although Mrs.
Tardy was entitled to her share of the credit. Our Admiral made out the official list of those invited,
and those fortunate enough to be in his good favor have their good luck- to thank for as pleasant an
evening as has occurred this cruise. True, each middy became fairly well acquainted with one girl and
only met the others, but'that was due to his personal preference. To be sure, we were recalled at
ten o'clockg it would not be middy liberty if we were not. and we were "lads ashoren for fair. No
details of the various mix-ups will be given, as they would involve every one there, but, as Venus
says, a middy is quite a slickster.
We have had a queer idea of Navy Sundays. Examinations,
1'ecitations, drills, and working ship are regular things, we are getting ' , ,U . g
used to it now, and I guess we can stand it. - v , ,
What the other aggregation found to kick about
we can't imagine. The work is a little harder than
loahng. but we all take it as a matter of course,
and the jumping-on as a joke. The treatment is
actually improving Qplenty of room, yet, howeverj,
according to our letters and tales, as well as the
Jackies. Truth to tell, this is our unanimous ver-
dict, as near as unanimity can.be reached among middies: this summer has given
us the best cruise of our course in experience, fun' ashore, and information gained.
Rumors of ten days' extra leave are disturbing our dreams at present, but past
experience sort of modifies our expectationsg so much so that should disappointment
finally come no one would die of grief.
How Mr. P. Leicester Arker worked that morning watch! Shades of Saint
Luce! lt sounds like a pipe-dream, but our stenographer took each word: "Loose
sail. Topgallant clewlines and buntlines. Weatliei' topsail braces. Topsail clewlines, buntlines, and
reef tackles. Lay aloft and loose the royals. Aloft, topmenf' A long look in his note-book: then:
"Man that starboard main topgallant sheet. Boatswain's mate, why don't you see that gear properly
manned? Luff her, haul taut, in topgallant sails. Pull harder on that sheet, will you?" A few
reports from the yards, another peep at his gouge, and a fresh
sta1't: "VVeather main topsail halliards. Tend the braces. Let
go all the topsail gear, lay in, lay down from aloft. Sheet
home g hoist away the topsailsfi The sheets had been home
since leaving Portland, and there was only one watch on deck,
l.ut that didn't pliaze the parson. VV hen he discovered his yards
were too square, he looked in his note-book, but that did not
appear in his routine, so he manned his weather braces. It
seemed to suit him just as well. He got his topgallants and
royals on with little trouble beyond rebnking his junioi oiiicer
of the deck for presuming to suggest that none of his yards
were sharp up: then, ten minutes after work was finished he
was seen to gasp, turn pale, and weakly reach out for his
funnel, he hastily ran over the pages of his note-book, then his eye I - - p I
lighted on an item, and his face flushed, he just did have time to
rectify an almost fatal blunder, that is, fatal to the beauty and sym-
he raised his
metry of the maneuver. Witli a last supreme effort
trumpet and murmured, "Boatswain's mate, clear up the gear."
Another time, Engineer-in-Chief Arker stationed a hand by each
weather topgallant clewline with orders not to throw it off without a
specific order from the deck. .
Jang has learned who Hoyle was. Upon hearing that the Exec.
reefed topsails "strictly according to Hoyle," he asked everybody on
deck who Hoyle was and what Seamanship he wrote, "For," said he, "if he was an authority, it must
have been a Seamanship he wrote." He had forgotten "My Notes."
Regarding the trip lionie and up the bay, "All's well that ends well," and we went on leave.
Language uttered at the time would require fire-proof paper for publication, but at last our cruise was
overg no more practice cruises for 1903. And our parting from the "Chesapeake" was both swift

Our Class Bizarre
THIRTEEN days after Rameses and Methusaleh held their famous love-feast, the fast-mail auto-
mobile between Nineveh and Timbuctoo was lost in the wilds of Beulah-land. In the pouches were
three valuable articles: the money-order for Prometheus's ransom, Cleopatra's latest photograph, and
the official program of our world-defying sideshow. Listen with all the interest your apathetic souls
can command, while I tell you of 'the greatest collection of curiosities ever gathered together since
the fall of the Tower of Babel. But, nog-you must go inside. Step up quickly and buy your
tickets. Please don't crowd so closely.

During the course of our performance, our special German Band will dispense sweet silence at
desired intervals, according to the potential and capacity of the audience.
First, I invite your attention to Maggie, the Scotch calliope. VVith the greatest facility and upon
any occasion or provocation, music of all sorts and conditions floats forth in chunks, varying from a
wedding-march to the latest ragtime. just after reveille seems to be the hour most conducive to in-
spirations and eruptions.
Near him, in solitary grandeur, sits the Lord High Admiral of the Admiralty. His gold lace and
haughty brow seem to reinforce each other, but his pose is natural, being the correct barrister's atti-
tude, Mark VII, adapted to the quarter-deck. He eats absolutely nothing, living on self-satisfaction
and the adulation of admiring friends.
Directly opposite is Gussie, the hairless man. From earliest youth he has cherished the fond'de-
lusion that patience and the application of every kind of renovator would enable him to remove his
hat in fly-time with some degree of comfort. Wfhat he lacks outside his cranium has been amply
-compensated for inside by the fine art instinct he possesses, natural scenery is his long suit. A grand
view, a beautiful picture, and a mathematical demonstration appeal equally to his aesthetic nature. No,
lady, do not believe everything he tells you.
At the opposite end of the room you will find Hoogie, the bottomless pit. He has the onlv
.appetite on earth that has never been known to be satisfied. XVith equal relish, he devours wheat
biscuits, strawberries, and shavings, when forced to diet for two hours, he has been known to chew
chalk, and even the furniture of his room mysteriously disappears. XVe have a standing reward of
five paid admission tickets for any one who will make him admit that he is not lmngry.
His companion is Lucy, the strawberry lady. She possesses the mysterious power of producing fine.
luscious lJCl'l'lCS at any time of year, entirely without artificial aid. By working over- Q
time, she has been able to keep Hoogie well suppliedg but owing to her bashful nature . - K .

Will the band please pause a moment until the audience recovers? .A .1n,,l,,l.11
In the meantime, I invite your attention to that central stand, where Emma. the i
India-rubber man, will entertain you with his humorous antics. He is not quite himself to-day, as he
reversed both feet in his haste to turn out this morning. Perhaps a few stretches will do him good.
Vifatch his facial contortions as he frisks from chair to chair, and notice his graceful attitudes while
resting. He can tie himself in a double-figure-of-eight, but requires assistance to get straight again.
' r nuous efforts induce about twentv hours' sleem each da , and more is necessar f if he accident-
.IS s e . . Y
ally performs any mental work. No. I could not conscientiously recommend him as a household pet.
Children, I would not get quite so close to the Monk's cage, he is quite harmless unless aroused,
but if you twist his tail, I fear he may snap at you.
Here, in this safe, I have the rarest conscience known to science. It belonged to Waltah, but
as it was of such an elastic nature and of so rare a species, we decided to take energetic means for
its preservation. It will cover all cases of any nature, expanding and contracting according to cir-
cumstances, and its elastic limit seems to be infinity. Try it, my friend! Do not be afraid of break-
ing it. I assure you, it has had good, practical use.
And here, ladies, is something I am sure will interest you. It is Willie, the Circassian snake-
charmer. Captured in the wilds of Asia and gradually accustomed to the usages of civilization, he
has lost none of his native coyness, nor mildness of manner or speech. He seems to be perfectly
fearless of all substantial objects, but entertains the most wholesome respect for his shadow when he
casts one. He seldom speaks, but upon occasion utters the most expressive exclamations, even burst-
ing into song when provoked.
Attention, children! In this wigwam lives Kickapoo Mike, the Indian skirt dancer. He was
secured at great expense, coming directly from his native tribe 3 and thus far he has baffled all efforts
to civilize him. Notice the extraordinary development of his limbs, probably acquired while coursing
jack-rabbits and coyotes. His grace and ease of motion are famous throughout the length and
breadth of this great land, and his act is absolutely original, I assure you. If you know of any
successful, even attempted, imitation, speak now or forever hold your peace.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, thanking you one and all for your kind attention, we will con-
clude our entertainment with a selection by the band, entitled, "Ach, mein liebe Augustine."

The Nature of the Beast
In many of the things of life
VVe think not of the good,
Indeed, therels almost daily strife
About our very food.
Consider, now, a practice cruise, XV hy is it that our thoughts are turned,
The good that it does bring, XV hen of the cruise we tell,
Why is it we do but abuse, Upon the corn that's always burned,
And of its hardships sing? And meat that tastes like--ambrosia?
Why is it that our thoughts are set
Upon the omelets tough,
And other dainties we forget
In 1l1C1T1,1'iCS of plum-duff?
Why is it, for example, that No ordinary mortal would
We think but of the ham, Think only of the baclg
One-half of which is mostly fat, He'd think more often of the good
The rest not worth a--continental? And for the good be glad.

VVhen have his troubles ceased!!!
The answer, tlzcn, comes easy,-" 'Tis
The nature of the Beast."

Recollections of My First
I marched to the exam. roomg
I sat me on a stoolg
I gazed awhile in mute despair,
Then looked like any fool.
For there it was in black and white,
My Math. examinationg
But working what was written there !
Wotilcl puzzle all creation.
I started first on number One,
But found I couldn't do itg
Then worked awhile on number Two,
But couldn't quite see thro' it.
Three, Four, and Five I tried in vain, f
Then came to this conclusion:
Examinations are a bore, K
And "two-lives" a delusion.

2' F there is one thing in connection with the Naval Academy that is appreciated by the battalion,
if that thing is the band. This appreciation is all the more remarkable when it is considered
3. how little time there is to listen to the band. Those fellows who are lucky and savvy
Q enough to recite the first hour in the morning can spend the second hour hanging out of the .
.5 windows in the ba.nd's direction. Alas! little "boning" is done then and much "busting" is
, done in the next hour.
y la It is the band that drives away fatigue at a tedious infantry drillg it is the band that
l Y ,551 makes one feel "worth while" at a parade in VVashingtong it is the band that makes
possible the cosy corner chats known as june Week promenade concertsg and, last, but not
least, 'it is the band that plays at the hops, and, knowing what the hops are, can more be said than
that? In truth, the band is indispensable, and every man in the battalion has a soft spot in his heart
for it and feels deeply grateful for all it has done to make his labors easy and his burdens light.

Methought I saw a maiden fair, Her eyes were L
A maiden sweet and charming, And she was sweet as any,
A maiden coy and debonnair, A pretty girl, and charming, too,
' A chosen one from many.
I-Ier beauty was alarming.
But, close behind, another passed
And threw me in confusion,
I loved the first, I loved the last,
I labored in delusion.
I-Iow happy had I been with one, And so I stand divided now,
Had there not been the other! My soul within me quav'ringg

The room was, oh! so very cold,
And Chilly Darkness reigned supreme.
Methought I was the North King bold,
When thy sweet song dispelled my dream.
From out the cold and frozen North
A distant, muffled sound was heard,
Which soon into a tune broke forth,
'Twas sweeter far than any bird.
A tom-tom 'twas I thought of first,
To so disturb me from my sleep,
And then rnethought a shell had burst
And fallen on me in a heap.
And then, 'mid all the awful din,
A German band I seemed to hear,
With sound of brass and tinkling tin
Walciiag the echoes far and near.
And other things I thought of, too,
That could make such confusion,
But none of them quite equaled you
And so to this conclusion:
I've never heard of any land

And, also, Radiator.

- 1. I respectfully request permission to fall out of ranks
and go to my 1700111 every morning after breakfast formation,
as I have found that my health is better and that I am able
to do better work by going without breakfast.
2. I also request that I be allowed to draw one box of

Soon there're two on every seat,
Down in Loveris Lane,
Sailor bold and maiden sweet,

Each will do her least command,
P'raps he'll even hold her hand,
For they never lack the sand,
Down in Lover's Lane.
There is always many a sigh,
Down in Lover's Lane,
VVhen they have to say "Good-by,
Down in Lover's Lane.
For, of course, he has to go
VVhen he hears the bugle blow,
But they'll meet again, you know,
Down in Lover's Lane.

CA R If OF ARM ORLET.
Armorlet requires no care. It is strong enough to take care of itself.
The diurnal changes of temperature will not affect the Armorlet, nor will a weekis soaking in
kerosene, except to imp1'ove the flavor. It may be struck a blow with a ten-ton steam hammer without
being affected in the least, but this is not advisable, as steam hammers are expensive.
VVhen removing the Armorlet from the case to hoist on deck, see that the deck is X
well shored to stand the strain.
All Armorlets are painted yellow and have a sulphurous odor. Great care must
be taken to hold the nose when opening the case, as otherwise the ship's cook, oi
whoever opens the case, may be seized with a violent desire to jump ove1'board

The Base ball Game
"PLAY BALL!" It was the
Navy's war-cry. Childs stepped up to
the plate, surveyed the positions of the
opposing teani, and smashed a grounder
toward first base. He inisjudged the
distance, however, and went out on the
playg Staton, however, had made cor-
rect calculations, with the result that he
placed a beautiful two-bagger over the
first-base line. XVeaver followed with
a bounding grounder to third base,
which Cooper fumbled, and Staton
scored. The surprise was such a blow
to Graham that he hit Smith in the
shoulder. Then he braced up wonder-
fully and made Read strike out. But then sonietlnnfv happened On the thnd stiilte XVCTXCI stai ted

turned to the diamond another run had been chalked up for the Navy. Anderson drew a base on
balls, but two runs were sufficient for one inning, and Bassett retired on a grounder to first base.
Now it was the Army's turn. Cooper succeeded in knocking a grounder to Raudenbush, which
the latter threw to first. Zell followed by striking out. Such an Heasinessi' evidently surprised
Weaver, for he dropped the ball, but retired the batter by throwing to first. MacArthur closed the
inning by a grounder to Smith.
After such batting, Navy thought that the least she could do would be to offer a little encour-
agement, so Pegram and Raudenbush
struck out in quick succession, and
Childs closed the inning by hitting an
, easy grounder to Cooper, who threw
him out at first. But in the second
half of this inning the Army braced
up considerably. The first man to
bat knocked a long fly to centre lield
-a really remarkable hit for a West
Pointer-but, as stated before, it was
knocked into centre Held, and such a
hit must die a natural death. The
next man up was Herr. Raudenbush
th1'ew him a ball for which he was not
looking, and it surprised him so much that he made a clean single between Childs and Bassett.
But Herr had been growing on the Army for so many years that he had learned a great many of
the habits of West Point, and it seems that one of the every-day customs 'of that place is stealing
second-base. To correct this habit, Weaver promptly shot the ball in that direction, and Smith nailed
the runner by something over ten feet. Thus Herr died on second, poor fellow! Navy was tired
of watching the Army bat, and Raudenbush struck out Abbot, thereby closing the inning.
Then "Dolly" Staton stepped up to the bat. He smiled so bewitchingly at Graham that the latter
threw him exactly what he wanted. The hit was of the kind that sizzles along close to the ground.
Evidently, the third baseman had never seen this before, for he did not seem to have the slightest
idea of stopping the ball, and by the time that Zell had picked it up Staton was standing on first.
Weaver then came up. It did not take him long to decide what he wanted, for he picked out the
first ball that came along, making a clean single between first and second. Smith followed with a
grounder to Herr, who threw Staton out on home plate just as he was about to score. Hackett was
very much pleased with his put-out, and smiled as he shot the ball toward third base to catch Weaver,
who was stealing in that direction. Navy smiled, too, when the ball went about four feet over
Cooper's head, and VVeaver came trotting home with another run. Then a peculiar thing occurred.
Smith was on third and Read was at the bat. The latter knocked a ground hit just outside the first-
base line, and Hobson handled the ball cleanly, but then he seemed to lose his head, for with Smith
running towards home and Read under all plain sail for first base,'i the Army man executed a very pretty
feat of combination juggling that ended with Read on first and another run for the Navy. Anderson
followed with another grounder towards first, but this time the Army was prepared, and Read was
thrown out on second base. Bassett then "flew out" to Daly, and the inning was over.
Navy desired some more excitement when the Army came to bat again, and Raudenbush per-
mitted the first man up to- land squarely on the ball. The spectators went wild with joy, as there
was a long fiy to deep centre field, but with the usual result,-Anderson was there. The second batter
also found Anderson there. Graham followed with a swift and difficult grounder to Childs, who threw
high to Pegram. The latter stopped the ball, but could not hold it, and Graham was safe. Cooper
was the next victim. He struggled desperately for life, and made a very pretty line hit between first
and second. Pegram captured the ball, however, and threw to Raudenbush, who had started with the
batter for first base, and, catching the ball on the run. he crossed the bag a fraction of a second before
Cooper, thereby closing the inning.
Then followed the most uninteresting inning of the game. Pegram made first base on a grounder
that Cooper could not handle in time to make a put-out, and Raudenbush followed with an infield Hy
over Graham, who got the ball on the first bounce and threw Pegram out at second. Zell made a good
running catch of Childs's long fiy, and Staton also went out to the Army left-fielder. For the West
Pointers, Zell struck out and MacArthur made a ground hit to Raudenbush, who threw him out at
first. Hobson followed with a clean hit to right field, but Herr retired the side with a long hit to
The fifth inning was destined to be of a different nature, for NVeaver began by knocking a two-
bagger to centre field. This looked like business, and Smith promptly sacrificed to Graham. Read
also sacrificed, with the result that
XVeaver crossed the plate with the fifth
run. There were now two outs, and

retired on an easy grounder to Graham, and Pegram followed by going out on a ground ball to first.
Then Raudenbush stepped up, and, to the surprise of even the most sanguine Navy rooter, made the
longest hit of the game, into deep centre field. He made three bags successfully on it, but being
over-anxious to make home, he was caught before he reached his goal. The first man up for the
Army was Cooper, who succeeded in connecting with one of Raudenbush's curves, but the result was
only a slow grounder which Raudenbush himself easily threw to Pegram. Zell followed with a hot,
hard one to Bassett that was beautifully handled, throwing the runner out in the nick of time. The
next batter, MacArthur, hit a disagreeable, creeping grounder 'towards second base. Smith made a
gallant attempt to land the ball, but failed to handle it cleanly, and the runner stood safely on first.
Hobson followed with a hot grounder through Bassett, and when Raudenbush presented Herr with a
base on balls, Army stock seemed above par to the VVest Pointers, for the bases were actually full,-
and it seems that it is another old Army custom, or, rather, belief, that three men on bases are
equivalent to several runs. Well, naturally, having traveled considerably, the Navy had no such
foolish ideas, and when Abbot knocked a hot grounder to Smith and that gentleman threw the runner
out at first, the crowd of Army rooters seemed not only disappointed but terribly surprised.
Childs began the seventh with a long, high Hy to centre, and Staton promptly sacrificed to
Cooper. Weaver followed with a hot one in the same direction, but the ball was not fielded rapidly
enough. Then Childs became anxious and tried to steal third, but, strange as this may seem in print,
the Army was totally prepared for the emergency, and Hackett threw him out at third, very- cleverly.
But the Navy showed that she had displayed considerable strategy in this maneuver, for Childs would
certainly have gone out on the next play. Smith knocked a little pop Hy to Herr, and while everyone
was marking the out on his score card, the short-stop dropped the ball. Read retired the Navy by a
grounder to second base, and the Army came to bat. Wfinston made good connections and hit a
high, bounding ball over second. Hackett followed with a sacrifice hit, and when Graham walked the
enthusiasm was intense. But Cooper could do no better than a grounder, which Raudenbush fielded and
threw to Bassett, nailing VVinston at third. Zell followed with a Hy to Statou, and all was quiet along
the Hudson. H
The eighth was decidedly interesting for the Army,-yes, and for the Navy, too. Anderson
opened the inning with a long, hard fly to centre field, and Bassett followed with a beautiful line drive
over second base, the prettiest hit of the game. Then Pegram presented Wi11StOl1 with another long
tiy, while Raudenbush retired the side with a grounder to Graham. Graves batted for MacArthur,
and being a good waiter the had waited seven inningsj, received a pass to first. Now the fun began.
Hobson hit a grounder to Raudenbush, who threw wide to second, Smith dropping the ball, and, with
two men on bases, Herr knocked a
hot one through Bassett, while Graves
crossed the plate with the first run for
A ' K I A the Army. Enthusiasm was rampant
i among the W'est Pointers. Abbot con-
nected with a iiy to short left field,
but Childs made another of those sen-
sational catches for which he is so
noted, and the two men on bases did
not move. But Wiiistori was de-
termined to move-and he did! He
hit the first ball pitched for a clean
line hit, but though the ball was re-
turned to the diamond in time to nip
Herr, it was thrown to first to catch
the runner, and Hobson and HC1'1' both
scored. The din and excitement in the Army bleachers were now at their highest. Visions of victory
were already before them, and with this inspiration Hackett fouled out to Weave1', while Graham
presented Smith with a grounder that the latter threw to Pegram. Then the din ceased, and it
may be truly said that nothing was heard from the Army bleachers but silence.
The ninth was short and decisive. Childs hit an easy grounder to Abbot, who retired him at
lirstg Staton followed with a high ily to Graves, but VVeaver was still in the game for blood, and he
knocked a hot one to second base that ,could not be fielded in time to put him out. Smith followed
with a strike-out, and Army came to bat. Cooper. the first man up, made a clean hit to right Held,
but Zell followed with a grounder to Bassett, and Cooper was thrown out at second. W'hile Graves
was at bat, Zell tried to steal second. The result might have been known, for Wfeaver threw him-
out to Smith by a comfortable six feet. Darkness was beginning to settle by this time, and the-
atmosphere about the VVest Pointers was especially gloomy. Graves was hit in the shoulder, but Hobson
followed with a fly to left field, and while amid the encouraging shouts and cheers of their adherents.
the Navy team trotted off the field. Staton quietly caught the ball and placed it in his pocket.
The best team had won the game by the best ball-playing.

'VVERE you there? Of course, we were. Who that could get there stayed away? VVe did not
expect to win, but we did have hopes, and strong ones. too, for we knew that as loud as a man of
our team had one sound hone in him that team would keep up the fight, and if they did lose they'cl
lose hard and turn some han' grayer than some uniforms. And they did. We are proud of our
team, of the sand they showed, and of the work they did at Philadelphia. VVe are proud to say,
too, that the Army had a team that could make Harvard, Princeton, or even Yale, feel very tired.
The Army had heavy backs, and there lay the secret of their success. Their tandem formation
would have gone- through, or over, or under any team in the country, except one actually outweighing
them twenty or thirty pounds. The only thing that can stop beef is more beef, so we are not
ashamed of our defeat.
The Army's great man this year was, without doubt, Bunker. He deserves most of the credit,
if not all, for winning the game. He did nearly all their ground-gaining, and when Strassburger
had gone through the place where Bunker ought to have been, and had passed the invincible Daly,
and had made a sixty-yard run for a touch-down, Bunker followed him down the field and caught
him just as he reached the Army line. We must not forget Torney and Hackett for the excellent
work they did. Hackett's run of forty yards for a touch-down after he had caught Belknap's punt
was beautiful, and Torney played a good game all the way through. Captain Boyers is not exactly
a fiend, nor is Graves the wonder we were led to believe him to be. Thompson and Hammond
were rather mediocre, and the ends were poor. VVest Point's backs were always down thc field
before the ends and did all the tackling.
The famous Daly made two end runs the whole width of the field, to gain seven yards once
and Hve another time. However, he did a lot of talking, missed Strassburger, and was forced across
the Army line for a safety, so his record is not altogether ruined.
At two o'clock the Navy team came on the field, a mighty shout rose from the north stand, and
the Navy rooters got to work. They opened their mouths and out rolled the "four N yell":
"Navy! Navy! Navy!
Navy! Navy! Navy l"
And then we gave them "VVith the good old Navy line," followed by the "team yell":
Team !', .
Soon after, at tive minutes past two, the Army team came on the Held, and the south stand
broke loose, and after giving the Army yell, sang a little ditty to the tune of "Under the Bamboo
Tree." At least, we have been told that that was the tune, it was rather hard to recognize.
The Army won the toss and took the east goal and the wind. At ten minutes past two, Belknap
kicked off and Daly caught it but was downed on Armyls twenty-live-yard line. The Army tried to
break through our line but was held. Then Daly kickedg Smith caught the ball and ran it back
to the Army's forty-yard line, when the ball went out. It was carried in, and Navy went through
Army's right guard for two yards, then tried a fake that failed. Belknap kicked, Army fumbled.
and Root fell on the ball.
Farley made one yard through left tackle, and Strassburger made first down. Farley tried it
againg no gain. Root took the ball and failed to gain. Then Strassburger dropped back for a try
at goal. He missed, the wind carrying the ball well to the right.
Daly kicked from Armyls twenty-five-yard line, and Smith caught the ball on our forty-yard line,
running it back ten yards, where he dropped the ball and Army got it. Then Navy held, and
Halsey tried at centre but made no gain. Navy tried a fake and lost seven yards. Belknap kicked.
Army fumbled, but fell on the ball.
Then Army made three yards through centre, and then came a series of Bunker. Bunker made
five yards through right tackle, then three yards through left tackle. The Army then made First
down through centre. Torney made two yards, but Army's left half failed to gain. Bunker made
first down: again Bunker made three yards. and again first down. Farley's ankle was badly twisted,
but he stayed in the game,f-of course.
The ball was then on ,Navy's twenty-yard line. Army made one yard through Navy line, then
lost a yard, and then came the hea1't-breaking sight. .Bunker made first down, then he made four
yards, going outside. The ball was brought in, and Bunker made first down again. Then he made
four more yards, and in the next rush carried the ball over for a touch-down. Daly punted out to
Hackett. who failed to catch it. Score-Army, 5, Navy, 0.
Belknap kicked off to Daly, who ran the ball back to the Army's thirty-two-yard line. Bunker
gained three yards for the Army, and then, with the irresistible tandem behind him, took the ball,
broke through the Navy line, and still with one or two of the "tandem" with him, started down the
field. For twenty yards they came, this battering-ram, and then they struck Smith, or Smith struck
them,-which was it? However, you choose to put it, everything seemed to go up in the air and
suddenly stop. It was a beautiful, wonderful tackle, and seemed to be about the only thing during
the game that inconvenienced Bunker at all, because for a minute his knee gave him a good deal of
trouble. Poor old "Smitty," he was almost done for, but back he went into the game with his sand,
and his grit. and his splendid spirit and nerve. Torney made five yards through left guard, and
Bunker followed with three through left tackle. Torney made two yards through right guardg
Bunker made first down through left guard. Then Torney and Bunker made another li1'SlI down
I The ball was now on Navy's thirty-five-yard line and something had to be done. Torney made
two yards through centre, then Bunker made another yard for the Army through right tackle, followed
by a first down through right guard.-and still something had to be done. Hackett made three yards
through right tackle, and Bunker made first down. Torney made a first down. Another four yards,
another first down,-and then something was done.
Navy got the ball on a fumble on her own ten-yard line. Belknap kicked to Hackett, and then
something else was done, for he ran the ball from the forty-yard line around Navy's left end for a
touch-down. T orney missed the goal. Score-Army, Io: Navy, 0.
'Belknap kicked to Bunker,-who was tackled by XVhiting on Army's forty-yard line. Bunker
dropped the ball, but Hackett got it. In the scrimmage after the ball Smith was so badly hurt that
he was taken out of the game and McNair took his place. Root was hurt here, too, and was taken
out to give place to Milne. Army tried an end run, but lost three yards. Daly then punted to
McNair on Navy's ten-yard line, and he ran the ball back thirty yards. Strassburger made four yards
around right endg Farley, first down through centre, Milne, two yards, Rodgers, two yards, and then
Belknap kicked to Daly, who was downed on Army's thirty-yard line. Daly kicked to McNair, who
ran out at Navy's forty-one-yard line 5 Farley made one ya1'd through right tackle, Milne failed to
gain. Belknap kicked to Daly, who was downed by Soule on Army's thirty-five-yard line. Army
fumbled, and Strassburger got the ball.
Milne made four yards around Army's left end. Halsey made first down through left tackle,
but Strassburger lost a yard. He then made a beautiful attempt at a goal from the Held. Straight
between the posts it was aimed, but the wind was too strong, and the ball was caught by Daly on the
one-yard line. Mad as a bull at things in general and someone in particular, Strassburger tore
through the Army line, and Mr. Daly experienced that very delightful sensation of being struck with
a Mark HI, I2-inch, A. P. shell in the person of Strassburger, who drove him over the Army line
for a safety. Poor Mr. Daly! His laurels were sadly in need of freshening that day.
Daly kicked to McNair, who ran the ball back ten yards to our fifty-yard line. Milne tried left
tackle for no gain, and Rodgers followed with three through Bunker. Belknap kicked to Daly, the
ball making great leeway but only five yards headway. The Army made two yards in as many downs.
and was forced to kick. McNair, who caught the ball, was downed by Farnesworth on Navy's twenty-
five-yard line. Strassburger hurdled for four yards, but Milne lost on a fake. Belknap punted to
Hackett, who ran the ball back ten yards, when Halsey tackled him, causing him to drop the ball just
where we wanted it and just where we took it.
Here was where the Army was slightly surprised. "Forty-four-fifty-tive-tive. Blake Row," a
dash through right tackle, and straight down the field flew Strassburger, sixty yards for a touch-down.
Daly made an heroic but wild effort to catch him, but was slightly nervous and, missing the tackle,
badly mussed his hair. ,
The Army trainer rushed out with a watering-pot and sprinkled Mr. Daly's laurels. but even this
seemed useless, for they were graced with the modesty of their owner, and the cheering from the
Navy stand drove them into retirement.
The expression, "Pandemonium broke loose," will have to be changed, for it does not half-way
express the noise that arose from the Navy rooters when Strassburger made his touch-down, and when
Strassburger kicked the goal the Army stand went into mourning. We gave them every yell from
"Rah! rah! rahl Rah! rah! rah! Rah! rah! rah! Team l" to the "siren yell." VVe sang all the
songs in our repertoire, and even danced breakdowns on the benches, with the result that a dozen or
so of them gave way. This ended the half.
Between halves, the "choir celestial" sang "Army Bluef' "Mix Daly," "VVith the good old Navy
line," and 'sDolly Gray," interspersing the songs with the siren yell and a few more choice noises.
After we had sung for a while, our friends across the field got over their dazed condition and be-
came quite lively. Their band played "Army Blue" and we sang it, so the band decided to stop.
NVhen the audience had got as much singing from both battalions as it could stand, the two teams
came out on the field to begin the second half.
Graves began the second half by kicking off to Strassburger on our twenty-five-yard line. The
Navy man fumbled, but McNair recovered the ball. A trial at a fake resulted in a loss, and Belknap
punted to Daly, who was tackled by Soule on Navy's fifty-yard line. Then Bunker made five yardsg
Bunker and Torney, five more, Torney, one yard, Bunker, three, Torney, three 3 Bunker, two, Torney,
twog Bunker, two, Bunker, another first down. Then by a series of short gains Bunker made a touch-
down. Daly punted out to Hackett, and then kicked the goal. Score-Army, 163 Navy, 8.
Belknap kicked off to Daly, who carried the ball back to Arrny's thirty-yard line. Torney made
three yards, and Bunker one. Then Daly kicked to Navy's thirty-five-yard line. Navy fumbled, but
fell on the ball. Strassburger made ten yards around Army's right end. Doherty failed to gain
around Army's left end. Rodgers made one yard through right tackle. Belknap kicked to Daly on
Army's forty-five-yard line, but Daly seemed to suffer from some sort of delay, for, before he could
move, Soule had tackled him. The Army thought to give us a dose of Bunker, but only made one
yard, followed by another yard by. Hackett. Then Daly kicked, as usual. Mr. Daly is the greatest
kicker in the country. He kicked all through the game, for when his foot was quiet, his mouth
was going. .
McNair caught Daly's punt and started down the field. but slipped and fell. At this time Farley
ran into Daly and bruised hi1n up a bit, so the nurse was sent for. and Farley taken out for his rude
conduct. He was replaced by Rees. Metcalf took Halsey's place. Then after Mr. Daly had been
petted awhile and promised a whole bag of candy, the game went on.
Doherty lost one yardg Strassburger made six on a delayed pass. Doherty made two yards,
Rodgers made two and one-half, and then Belknap dropped back for a kick. Hackett caught the ball,
but NVhiting, who was giving the Army ends a pointer or two, tackled him on Army's forty-ive-yard line.
Then it was Bunker 3 two plus two plus one equals live yards to his credit. Torney made one
yard. Then Daly made six yards on a fake, and Rees sat on him. More Bunker for three yards,
and then for two-yards more. Torney made one yard, and Bunker made four. Bunker made three
yards, and Torney made one. Then Navy got the ball for holding.
Doherty made one yard on a delayed pass, and then two yards more. Belknap kicked to Daly
on our Fifty-yard line, and Army got ten yards more for Navy's interfering. Daly kicked to Rodgers,
who fumbled, but Navy fell on the ball. Then Strassburger started around the end and fumbled the
ball, McAndrew getting it.
Bunker made three yards through centre, and Fretz was badly hurt and had to be taken out of
the game, Oak taking his place. Then came a series of Army's old standbys,-tandem plays, with
first Bunker carrying the ball, and then T orney. Our team did their best to stop them, but they had
not the weight, and the whole team simply slid down the field. Finally, the Army Bunkered us out
of another touch-down. Daly punted out to Hackett and then kicked the goal. Score-Army, 22:
Belknap kicked off to Daly on Army's five-yard line. Grady tackled Daly on Army's twenty-
five-yard line. Then it was Torney, two, Bunker, two: Torney, first down, Torney, first down,
Bunker, two yards, Bunker, one yard. Daly kicked to Strassburger. who ran out on Navy's forty-five-
Strassburger made two yards on a delayed pass, and Doherty made one yard. Grady was taken
out and replaced by Michael. Belknap kickedto Daly. who was tackled by Rees on Army's forty-

Daly made ten yards on a fake kick, and was tackled by Metcalf. Bunker again took the ball and
made four yardsg Graves made first downg Bunker made live yards, and Hackett made another. Then
Torney made three, and Bunker first down. Graves made four yards, and Torney first down. Then
time was called. Score-Army, 22: Navy, 8.
'ln less time that it takes to tell it, the corps of cadets and the battalion of midshipmen had
swarmed out on the held, and, led by their bands. each visited the other's country and yelled itself
hoarse. The great game was over and the Army had won, perhaps, the most nervily contested game
of the series. Vtfe congratulate you, VVest Point. on your well-earned victory. We made you work

"What have we here ?" surprised, you ask,
"Such wealth of occupation !"
Our answer to this question is,
"This book in preparation."
Here Neclcly, VVillie, Monk, and Steve Two men are writing, Dunc and Nick,
Are trying to be funny, They try hard to be witty, 4
While there, with specs upon his nose, While Billy, Tom, and Emma Giles
George S. is counting money. Are on the art committee.
They've all worked hard, this feeble ten,
And hope this publication
Will find some favor in your eyes,
And meet with approbation.
Within these pages you have found
A Iittle good, much bad.
You have borne much, bear with us while
A little more we nad."

SpaIding's Official Inter-
collegiate Foot Ball is used
by every leading team throughout the country and must be used in
all championship games. Ask for and be sure you get Spalding's
Official No. I5 Ball when buying. The others are NOT "just as good."
Spalding's New Attachment for Foot Ball Tackling Machine
was invented by Mr. John McMastcrs, trainer of the Harvard team,
and used by them last season. When the dunnny is tackled and
tackled hard, the spring will bear down until the dummy is released,
and you get exactly the effect of tackling a inan and downing him.
It takes good strong tackling to do it and renders it impossible
for anyone to learn to tackle in a weak, careless way. It is univers-
ally conceded to be tl1e best appliance for use in connection with a
tackling dummy yet invented, and the eliiciency of a team is im-
proved from the first trial.
