LIEUTENANT NEEDI-IAM LEE JONES
UNITED STATES NAVY
TO WHOSE PATIENT FORBEARANCE WITH OUR
" WOODENNESS "
so MANY or Us owz oUR BEING IN THE SERVICE TODAY
THIS BooK IS GRATEFULLY
"In all my experience -with Midshipmen I have nfveffbund
one who was not worthy qf ll l"W079'Ue fyou
'went at him in the rzgflf 'IWW-H
N presenting this book the editors desire to thank the con-
tributors both without and within the Academy for their
kindly interest and the invaluable help thCY have given us'
They have greatly assisted us in our attempt to set forth the
life and changes we have known in the last four ye-arS.
But for the most part this book is of necessity local. We
cannot hope to interest the world at large With the records ef
our academic years, now gone forever, but if our friends care
to look herein they may find some of the things vve have
thought and said and treasured up living here amid the Passing
of the Old, and under the shadow of the New-
Memory never grows old: the laughihg eyes dim and
voices die away, but the remembrance of the Years agone will
be with us unto the ends of the earth, hallowed by Friendship
and softened by time.
Despite whatever mingled fee1ingS Of lov and fesfet with
which we think of our passing, it is decreed that Our timc has
come to leave, possibly forever, our Alma Mater- one Part
of the journey is done, and our mantle falls uPen others'

A Day Of judgment
Once a little middy
Thought he could safely do
A11 the naughty, naughty things
A middy Should eschew.
He said, "A cigarette is Soothing,
Without it can I do?
And poker aids my mental gear,
And gives it practice, too.

Why Frenching'S more than easy,
For I have quite a cinch
A A-51ipping in and Out the gate,
With no unseemly pinch."
But alas! a day Of reckoning
Was drawing swiftly near,
AS more and more demerits
Were added to the year.
More frequently he langL1iShCd
Upon the Ship Santee,
Till, at last O'ertaken, vanquiS116d,

Has a very happy,' guileless smile and fetching dimples.

A simple minded youth, content with ephemeral joys. Has a
face like a cherub, surrounded by curly locks of golden tow. A
hellion with the ladies, who really think he is sane.
Gets enough mail, blue and pink, for ten men, and saves postage
by confining some attention to Annapolis. A constant ornament
of the language trees, and can speak French, Spanish and Sanskrit
with equal Huency. Obtained a 2.5 only by use of the gramophone
and wedding presents. Never bones but always has a 2. 5 I . Actually
cooked Gaddis fzj and nearly bursts with conceit. Thought he
was going to have a Welsh rarebit because the Exec. said to break

One of the prowlers. Almost persuades you that he is talking
sense by his judicial air and Bawston accent. Caffles his Shoulders
on a level with his ears and trips over his own toes. tHe informs
the editor that he is not pigeon-toed in both feet.l Never turns

Gets into trouble but never gets out. Stopped hazing at the
Academy Qgj. Never discouraged, not to be cast down, and the
buoyancy of his Irish spirits illuminates his Irish face. Usually
has been outrageously soaked and will tell you all about it if you
will but listen. Stoutly avows that it was Pierpont Morgan's
pony and not Vanderbilt's that fell on Dutchberger's leg. Lived
with Spooks a year and was sane, tho' not very strong minded, at
the end of it.

The constant quantity HK." Never rufHed since the days, Plebe
days, when he used to feed the animals. Resembles a bovine so
much that one almost expects him to say "moo" at a stranger.
Doesn't get any more demerits than Hughie, and when he once
got started fit took him a yearj the allied forces of math, skinny

A long frail person with a brace like a boat davit, a child-like
face lighted up at times with a look of almost human intelligence,
Wears non-reg. clothes and outrageous pajamas. When he laughs
the world laughs at him, and the game leaves for parts unknown.
Sings so charmingly that his hearers are moved to frenzy, and
everythings comes his way. If he ever.did any work he is a good
hand at keeping a secret-and we don't think he is. So generous
that he gives himself away the moment he gets in the section

The History of 1905
r,,,, N SETTING forth the deeds that go to make up the chronicle of 1905, we naturally feel some
ll' ii delicacy. For we are modest men all, andare loath to sing our own praise. Wherefore be it
known that we are much greater than we give ourselves the credit for, both in thought and action.
l The story of our existence is a tale of transition, wherein the old has passed away and all
5 things are made new. It is a history of peace and strife, light and shadow-the last class to
enter with a cruise last to pass a full year under the patriarchal system of hazing the
first 130 Stgp gouging and the first of th new big classes
In the beginning of the summer of 1901 when this chronicle begins sixteen of the seven
ty two previously gathered in went aboard the Chesapeake and the remainder on the Indi-
ana for a Plebe Cruise of which you may read elsewhere in the volume And returning we
found the rest of ourselves henceforth ourself and together toiled through Plebe Sept
i 3 Q in
1 drilled in the old Armory under Prof. Corbesier, rowed races in from the light house in cutters,
learned to Utumpells take" from Mattie Strohm, tied knots for Williams and A. W., and lived in
the house that Dodge built. '
Plebe Year was like everyone else's Plebe Year used to be,-lots of exercise, lots of bilging,
lots of rhinoing, and lots of fun. At least so we remember it. We became acquainted with our-
selves and began to be proud of being so big, and of having so many representatives in athletics.
The little celebrations in the Annex frequently attracted considerable attention and the Hotel
Santee entertained a number of guests.
The semi-anns took about one-sixth of us out of the service, some of whom returned in the
next class, and left the rest feeling like veterans and too savez to work very hard. Crew, track
and baseball, to say nothing of the minstrels, likewise called upon us to come out and play, and
so far as we could, we went.
At last the year WaS OVGT, the longest year of all the four gave place to Youngster Cruise,
which in turn brought us to Youngster Leave. Oh, incomparable September! the first, best, but
shortest month in the calendar of the midshipman.
Upon our return to the Academy we found that a larger class than ours had entered and we
entered upon the task of disciplining them dutifully. Alas! we could not know how the laws of an
unappreciative Congress would work together for our undoing. But before the approaching catas-
trophe had fallen, the corner stone of our progress was laid when, voluntarily but decisively we put
an end to the practice of gouging." From the death blow it received at our hands the unbeauti-
ful art has never since revived.
Hard upon this however came the unfortunate crisis upon which the Irishman brought us
with his left fist. At that blow the whole structure of "hazing" came tumbling down upon our
devoted heads. There was a stormy scene in the reading room in the February of 1903, and
after it we went to our rooms for further orders. Cut off and falling from our high estate we saved
ourselves by one of Kuropatkin's masterly retreats.
So was struck the first blow at a system grey with age, the one that offered the only solution
to the problem of disciplining the enormous classes that are entering now into the service of Uncle
Sam. This was one of the shadows, but not so dark as it might have been, as it passed without

Then passing through another cruise, another leave and returning to the Academy in the dig-
nity of second olassmen, we found ourselves part of a new brigade organization. Some of us had
"buzzards" roosting on our arms, but these are scary birds, and more than one flapped its wings

and flew away to a more peaceful resting place. Mechanics and Skinny and Steam en-
compassed us round about likewise. Their attacks cost us seven men on the semi-anns and an-
other at the end of the year-poor buffeted Skipper.
Rooming by companies began to wipe out the clearly drawn class lines, and scattered us until,
after the class of 1904 left us in February, the determined effort to brace things up brought us to-
At this point first class year really began. All first class privileges were ours, and there was
but one more year left in the Academy. Changing details of cadet officers gave each man his little
say. Then it was that we first tasted the pleasure of seniority, and the Academy Was never so
beautiful as then. Behind the fortifications of good margin we could smile at tl1e blustering exams.
for encompassed round with a 3.5 for the year, roaring of the annuals are as sounding brass and
So with the greater part of the course behind us, and our dignity well settled down upon our
shoulders we sailed away upon First Class Cruise amid the weeping of maidens and gnashing of
teeth on the part of our creditors. About the cruise we will tell you elsewhere, but about First
' s are missing and that some eyes have a
Class Leave we are silent. You may notice that some ring .
faraway look after the mail has been passed around--but one cannot judge from that.
Now First Class Year is upon us and speeding fast away. Half of us have taken apartments in
Bancroft Hall and the rest still cling to the old buildingsg thus we straddle the old and the new.
Stripes and decorations are assumed and put away as of yore and the Santee still receives us
There are books to be boned and duties now familiar with age to be performed for yet a little while
and then no more. For soon, with the burial of our ancient enemies Math and Skinny the last
of our potent adversaries will have been given Over into our hands,
If it may be said that the Academy we leave is better and stronger than the Academy we

long ago that time has healed its '
Wounds, and has left us for the most part pleasant recollections. On june S, 1901 sixteen fine-
looking young specimens of American youth marched on board the U. S. S. Chesapeake Caffec-
tionately known as Cheese-boxj and took possession, at the humble solicitation of the Captain, of
the luxurious quarters set apart for them abreast the galley, stowed their rich apparel in the
lockers, lashed their hammocks with a round turn and a couple of half bitches and ventured
forth upon the deep.
The remarkable adaptability of these eminent gentlemen in the new working clothes and the
jaunty hats was soon recognized, and by common consent of the other three classes aboard, all the
watches except those of Officer-of-the-Deck and Forecastle were turned over to them. If any
work was to be done, the royals furled, the hold broken out, the gear laid down, or the reel held,
they did it, cheerfully and not without comment on the part of the jealous upperclassmen. In
short, they seemed to be indispensable, and the good Captain to show his appreciation awarded
them liberty from 5.30 to 6 p. m. twice a week in port.

Let it not be thought however that they were puffed up with pride. Far be it from
them, or us, to give thanks like the Pharisee because we were not as those upperclassmen. But
those were the good old days of yore when a plebe was taken gently by the ear and led along
the paths of usefulness. Alas! now all is changed. The other fifty-six charter members of the
class of 1905 sailed upon the good ship Indiana. In the intervals between the beratings of
the First Luff and recitations, they were instructed in the arts of physical culture and vocali-

zation, and the care of awnings. After the usual round of New England ports they stood
away for Halifax, and then returned to Annapolis to meet the rest of the new class.
Youngster cruise was much the same as Plebe cruise, with the important difference that we
were no longer plebe, although we were "non ratey" class on board. The Chesapeake
and Indiana were up again and we saw the same old New England towns, and again visited
Halifax. There we found a great celebration in honor of the new King Edward and us, so we
straightway fell to doing as the Halifaxians did, and also celebrated. Moreover half of the cruise
was under the command of the Commandant, Commander C. E
. Colohan, Whose memory we
love to cherish.
After leaving Halifax there was a quick run down to the Capes, a short stay at Newport
News and then the Indiana passed the Chesapeake and sent
:tg ge. her quota on leave a week early. Think of it! an extra

peake sailed independently under Commander Halsey, to whom we owe thanks for a most
pleasant and profitable cruise.
After the customary cruising in Chesapeake and Gardiner's Bays we put into New London
and made the first shift. Then the squadron sailed for Boston to participate in the unveil-
ing of the Hooker Monument. This unveiling process we
'fx had to take on faith, as we could never see through
1 - if the fog as far as the dock. A great parade was had, how-
X KE, ever, and the monument was said to be unveiled. We be-
' lieved it and sailed away for Bar Harbor and the Pottle-Kittlc
ll N- N -, At Bar Harbor the fussers got in their choicest work.
ml W Dryness in the state of Maine did not trouble them for the
hospitable fair ones kept them on the run till the stern duties
F, , of joint manoeuvers called them away from dreamy waltz
4 -3- , and shadowy corner to do mock battle upon the sea. Mean-
while the Chesapeake had weathered a gale and had come
in, enabling us to make the seconditransfer. The enemy was soon destroyed, and we sailed
back to Annapolis, and went on our second leave.
On this cruise We got our first experience on board the torpedo boats. The first f-lotilla took
details of first and second classmen, and for the first time part of an1idshipn1an's practice cruise
included work on these 'fleet and interesting craft. '
Following the scattering process of second class cruise A TTL
and second class year at the Academy came first class cruise. X
a patch-work of rather varied formation. Thirteen vessels B 1
were employed to carry the brigade,-the battleships Texas H ua
and Massachusettsg monitors Arkansas, Florida and Nevada, f ' at :I 5 A
all of which acted in squadron, the second torpedo flotilla, BTMSMHL'
conisting of the Whipple, Hopkins, Hull, Worden, Truxtun,
Lawrence and Macdonoughg and the Chesapeake and Hart- E A
ford, wind-jammers, sailing independently. On them the ,
brigade was distributed as far as possible by divisions. ,W W
To attempt any description of this cruise would be next
to impossible. Every ship's quota has a different tale to
tell of this, the last of our four cruises. Each quota has its
own grievances and its own boasts, but all will agree that l
it was the best of all in being the last. The cruise, if it may l g

be called a cruise, consisted principally in lying off the Pequot House. Blue water was
sighted twice. whereupon all hands straight way fell sick. To be sure, some of the ships went
to Boston, and there were the torpedo boats and Fort Pond Bay Expedition.
The most memorable part of all was the trip up the Potomac, when all the first class was
concentrated on the monitors, and went up to Washington to the gunshops. That was good fun,
and was the last time so many of us will sail together, so we made merry for the few short days
that preceded first class leave, singing and smoking and swapping the gossip, about all night on
deck, and unfortunate card games, and midnight indigestiong until at last we disembarked at
the Santee dock for the last time from a practice cruise.
So ends the summary of our cruises, whose beginning and whose end were hailed with
glee. The sea upon which a great part of our lives will be spent has taught us many
things, Not everything, as the Seanlanship Department will admit, but a great deal. In
return for which we have given a great many dinners and some suppers.

The United States Naval Academy.
On August 15, 1845, Fort Severn, a small army post on the outskirts of Annapolis, Maryland,
was ceded by the War Department to the Navy. It was an unimportant post, and at the time
of its acquisition by the Navy Department the buildings surrounding the Fort were, through neg-
lect,in a very dilapidated COI1di11iO1'1- Under the direct supervision of the energetic Bancroft,
then Secretary of the Navy, these buildings were soon put in as good condition as possible, and a
few temporary structures erected. Here, on October 10, 1845, was established the United States
Naval Academy with Commodore Buchanan as its first Superintendent.
Of the few buildings and sheds within the wall surrounding the post, the best was the
former Army Commandant's house. This was made the Superintendent's quarters, and
though erected more than a hundred years before, it remained in use till 1883. Adjacent to
it was a row of buildings to which was given the name of Buchanan Row. These houses were
assigned to the various officers attached to the Academy until 1898, when they were used to quar-
ter Admiral Cervera and the other Spanish officers captured at Santiago. The Midshipmen were
at first quartered in several ramshackle buildings scattered about the yard, but the next year Strib-
ling Row was erected and became the abode of the Midshipmen.
, Early Conditions.
E. During the first years of the Academy, discipline was comparatively lax. The Midshipmen,
when studies were over, were free to do as they pleased-regular drills not having been intro-
duced as yet. Since athletics in the modern sense of the word were unknown at that time, they
spent much of their time in the various places of amusement in Annapolis, where they were per-
mitted to go in the afternoons. Midnight carousals and wild larks were of frequent occurrence.
The Midshipmen were constantly at variance with the ofhcers, and the practical jokes that they
perpetrated upon their instructors did not tend to produce much good feeling between them.
But among themselves, dissensions were few and hazing unknown.
This condition of affairs continued until 1853, when Commodore Goldsborough succeeded
Commodore Stribling as Superintendent. During his administration discipline became stricter, reg-
L... . .
ular drills Were established, the curriculum extended both in scope and character, and the Academy
in place of conforming to the pleasure of the Midshipmen began to cause the Midshipmen to con-
form to its regulations. New buildings were added from time to time, and the grounds en-
larged and improved. In 1849, the Seamanship Building was erected on the banks of the Severn
near the old Fort, and the following years of Commodore Goldsborough's administration the
Chapel,Observatory andRecitation Hall were added. Later, just before the war, 'Blake Row was
At the outbreak of the Civil War, the Midshipmen, much reduced in numbers by the loss of
their Southern classmates, were embarked on the old Constitution, and the Academy was trans-
ferred to Newport, R. I., first to Fort Adams, and later to the Atlantic Hotel. It was during this
period that the frigate Santee, a "political ship," which had been built piecemeal by the friends of
the party in power during the previous thirty five years,was added to the practice ships of the Acad-
emy. The four years sojourn in Newport was marked by no important changes in the Academic
Reorganization of the Academy.
In the summer of 1865, the Constitution and Santee brought the Midshipmen back to Annap-
olis, and the Old Academy, which during the war had been used as a hospital, was re-established.
Rear Admiral Porter now assumed control of affairs, and things were completely reorganized.
The discipline, though more rigid than ever before, was not so disagreeable, company organiza-
tion was introduced in place of gun crews, athletics were not only countenanced but even favored,
drills were made more showy and dress parades introduced, the various departments were enlarged
and the course in Marine Engineering established, the Santee was converted into a gunnery ship,
and a fully equipped gymnasium constructed on the barbette of Fort Severn.
During Admiral Porter's term, the Academy was considerably enlarged. The introduction
of Steam Engineering necessitated the erection of the Steam building, which was finished in 1866.
That same year, the old Colonial Mansion, for years the residence of Maryland's Governors, to-
gether with the surrounding land was added to the Academy, and the next spring, Strawberry
Hill was purchased from Saint j'ohn's College. The increased number of Midshipmen filled Strib-
ling Row to overflowing, and finally in 1869, the Main Quarters were erected, a four story brick
building which is still in use.
The progress and development of the Academy from then till the beginning of the Twentieth
century was that of a growing college. It had its ups and downs. Troubles came from time to
time, chief among which was that of hazing. But for the most part, the tendencies were toward
steady growth and improvement.
The impulse of the Spanish War was felt in the Academy as well as in the other branches of the
Service. The demand for more officers required more Midshipmen, and it was soon seen that the
Academy in its condition then would, in a short time, be entirely inadqeuate to handle the large
classes,which Were of necessity to enter in the near future. The Navy Department had for sometime
been agitating the rebuilding of the Academy, and now this became imperative. Finally in 1898
and 1899, Congress appropriated funds for the erection of the New Academy, which was soon
The Conditions at the Entrance of the Class of 1905.
When our class entered the Academy during the summer of 1901, the old Academy was be-
ginning to yield to the new, but it had not as yet lost its characteristics of appearance or customs.
Of the old buildings, the Superintendentent's House, Buchanan Row and a portion of Stribling Row
had been torn down to make room for the New Armory, Quarters and Seamanship Building.
The walls of the Armory were about half completed, while the foundations of the others were just
As one entered the Academy through the Main Gate, Maryland Avenue lay before one, lead-
ing down to old Phlox Wliarf on the bank of the Severn. To the right lay the Campus, formerly
an unbroken stretch of shady greensward from the Avenue to the Bayg but at that time the lower
half was enclosed by contractors' fences. On one side of the Campus, toward the city, were the
Chapel and Blake Row, the homes of the Commandant and Heads of Departments. On the oppo-
site side, the Steam Building, Observatory, Library and upper end of Stribling Row separated the
Campus from the Power House and Tennis Courts, which lay along the river's edge. Further down
was the Santee Wharf, where the old frigate, dismasted and housed over, was moored. Near the
wharf were the Seamanship Buildings, Gymnasium, Officers Club and lower end of Stribling Row,
which sheltered the Bachelor Officers and Paymaster's Department.
On the other side of Maryland Avenue, and somewhat back from the pavement, was Main
Quarters, flanked by the Recitation Shed, Goldsborough Row, better known as the Flats or Cor-
rals, Sick Quarters and the Physics and Chemistry Building, the abode of "Skinny," In the
rear of Main Quarters were the Annex, where dwelt the Plebes, and the Armory. Beyond these
lay the parade ground and Upshur Row, which had been laid out on the Strawberry Hill addition
and dubbed "Oklahoma "
The Changes in Organization.
The body of Midshipmen of which we became a part when we entered the Academy, was or-
ganized as a battalion of four companies, each company being itself divided into four crews. We
were quartered by classes, the iirst, second and third classes on the first, second, and
"""-"""""" :ff A., -,f
.. ... 3
third floors respectively of main Quarters, while we, the Fourth Class lived in the Annex.
This arrangement continued through our Youngster or Third Class year. But then there
came a radical change. The increased number of Midshipmen was too great for one bat-
talion, so two battalions of four companies each were organized, the two together constituting
the Brigade of Midshipmen. We were not assigned to quarters that year by classes, but by
companies. This was the first step toward the abolition of class organization, and the institution
of the company as a unit. The present organization is that of the Brigade of two Battalions, but
each battalion now consists of six companies. At the beginning of First Class year, the 'First Bat-
talion occupied Old Quarters and Annexes A and B 3 the SecondBattalion, the new Bancroft Hall.
The increase in number of Midshipmen caused by thc entrance of abnormally large classes each
year has necessitated each time larger quarters. This demand was first met by the building of the
Annex in rear of Main Quarters, the next year an addition was made to it and was ofiicially
designated as Annex B to distinguish it from the original annex which became Annex A. The
next demand for increased quarters was filled by the erection of an enormous shed on the Campus
opposite Blake Row. This was termed officially Annex C, but is better known as the New Willard.
On our return from First Class leave, the northeast Wing of Bancroft Hall went into commission.
The Passing of the Old.
The erection of the New Academy, already well started when we entered the Academy, has
progressed rapidly, and slowly but none the less surely the old has disappeared yielding to the new.
The old Seamanship Building was not completely destroyed until the fall of First Class Year.
Many were the hours we spent there during Plebe Wiiiter, learning to knot and splice under the
watchful eye of "Old Willia1ns," whose lucid explanations of "why is dem dogs," or "why is dem
rope ends," will never be forgotten. The quaint old Chapel at the end of Blake Row for two years
gathered us in on Sunday mornings to slumber peacefully through the sermons just as our prede-
cessorshad done in years before. It was with genuine regret that, during our Second Class Year,
we saw its walls torn down. The old Steam Building, where first we learned the F. W. B.'s of Me-
chanical Drawing, was vacated during the summer of 1904, the department moving into its new
quarters which had just been finished, and leaving its old quarters to be used as an auxiliary power
house and carpenter shop. As soon as the new Armory was finished, which was during the win-
ter of our Youngster Year, the old Armory was converted into a recitation shed and was for a time
the abode of Mathematics and Drawing. On our return from Second Class leave, however, the
old Chapel was found inadequate to hold the Brigade, so the old Armory was converted into a
temporary Chapel and is at present used for that purpose only. The Recitation Shed opposite
Goldsborough Row, was until this last year, the home of English and Modern Languages, but is now
used as the Pay Ofliceg Annex C being used as a general recitation hall for all subjects save Steam

Little Miss N afvy with hair so wavy,
Om' toast and our boast
Is little Miss Navy.
Three Minus One
Is Always Two.
'Twas at a hop of this last Leap Year
When towards a maid two Mids did steerg
Each, smiling, hurried down the lineg
Both blurted forth, "This dance is mine."
Then wildly turned their cards around
And stood and glared without a sound.
But soon it was a merry 1T1iX,
just nineteen five with nineteen six.
Miss Navy laughed and closed her fan,
Then wig-wagged to another man
Who took the hint and gleeful cameg
The while the battle raged the same.
A Plebe, indeed, was number four,
Whose fondest hopes began to soar.
Naught five and six fought for the dance
Until the music broke their trance.
Then turning round, to their dismay,
They saw Miss Navy glide away.
The moral here we clearly state:
They who haste most are surely late.
Three minus one is always two,
So I'd never be one if I were you.
A Youngster's Soliloquy.
T isn't so bad being a Youngster, after all. True, we cannot exercise our traditionary
prerogative over the Plebes, but that is their loss, not ours. And then the fussers and the
close-harmony fiends blossom out, and besiege one with dances to give away and songs to
sing, but that is to be expected.
My, but there were some bad ones on ther cruise, too, just got done being Plebes, I guess,
and were a little off in the head. Why, one fellow made a working drawing of the Nevada from
stem to stern, another answered the quarterdeck hail with "Arkansas, Sir," and had the Exec
waiting for him at the gangway. But the spud locker! They piled up on that till you couldnit
see it, and the hammock nettings were full. Said they didn't know they couldn't go to sleep
there. Oh yes, that Hre drill, too, when the little fellow provided a box of rifles.
Hey there! Mister! What in h- Oh, yes! I guess I'd better not say any more,-that's
hazing, I'm afraid. But would you note that specimen swinging his arms!
Certainly am glad Plebe Year's over. That's so long ago I can hardly remember it, but I'll
bet I never looked like that mick. That is, I braced up, and didn't walk like a stork that had
eaten too much. Wish they'd let us brace 'em up. I'l1 bet there'd be a big improvement in
their looks. '
Well, I believe I'll resign. Been back two weeks now, and homesick as ever. Don't see
why they only give us one month's leave. A fellow can't get started in that time, If I'd had
about two weeks more with Julia, I'd have made that cit at home look like a leather three cent
piece. But just when I was beginning to get busy, I had to leave.
Hello, there's the mail now. Hey, there, anything for mc? What? Look again. Well
I'll bei! That blooming postmaster's gone to sleep like the rest of this bloody town. Let's
a fellow slave away, and never takes any trouble to give him his mail. I'd like to punch his
Hello, old lady, just got back. Oh, yes, I know your sister. Doesn't look much like you,
though. Yes, I'll take a dance. Who with? That girl you were just Walking with----Oh, Lord
I'm in for it now. - Hope she's got a good disposition.
What's the Calc lesson? Thirty-five pa--! Oh, go on! You're running me. Honest?
I wonder what they think we are! Couldn't read that over in an hour. Don't guess I'll try.
Gimme that magazine. I'm going to read a little and then turn in. This 1ife's too, strenuous
and a fellow needs some relaxation anyhow.

E were a varied collection of youths who gathered here last june, and who, inspired by
noble impulses and patriotism,had left home, mother and sweetheart UD with our futures
laid out in glory and honor to become admirals in Uncle Sam's Navy. But what a drop!
From predestined conquerors of nations, we dropped down and down, until, as we finally reached
Annapolis and found that We were only one of very many heroes to be, we felt as if we had fallen
from infinity and landed on zip.
Our Class History begins june 6th, 1904, when we first became Midshipmen. Those first
few weeks were novel. We were as green as "Mike's" hair is red, and what we knew about
drills and seamanship, could easily be printed in large type on the back of a postage stamp.
But, like all our "preds." we had that serene feeling of importance, due to our realization that
We really were Midshipmen, until our first cutter drill. Then our pipes went out and our dream
was over. Oh, Joy! those lovely blisters and delightful GJ races from the lighthouse in to the
Santee wharf. But that was not allg the old Santee was very popular with the "fumers,"
each of Whom spent a month on the "yacht," and who can say that those Saturday afternoon
"informals" given by the French Department were not thoroughly enjoyed?
However, the summer passed very rapidly and September paid us a Short visit. We then
experienced our first work aloft, and one very small, but old and dignified member of the class,
remarked, of the working on the main royal, that it was the nearest to heaven he had ever been.
October arrived with its many surprises and novelties. The upperclassmen began to take a
great interest in us and t0 See that We did everything in the proper manner. Their kind, sympa-
thetic remarks have had their effect on us from the start.
Our chief pastime now is dreaming of our first cruise and leave, and looking forward to a
certain day in June some three and a half years hence, When, like the class which has honored
us with these pages, we can look back on our four years as Midshipmen with the greatest of pride

TUNE: That the Old Cow Died on.
Camera and other tink
In the trunk together sink
With the shirts and overshoes,
With the other things we chooseg
Dictionary-it fills up-
And perhaps a shaving-cup!
What a lot of blooming junk
Gets into the bi1ger's trunk.
Packing up is now the thing,
While We Work and cuss and sing
From our homes so far away
Nevermore again We'1l stray.
On the farm we'll live and dieg
No more Math our wits to tryg
No more Skinny, no more trees,
No more working for a grease.
Pack it up, that blooming trunk,
Full of reg. and non-reg. junk!
See that nothing's left behind,
Then, the ropes around it bind:
Let it carry mem'ries dear
With us even to the bier.
And, although we be not savey,
Let us not forget the Navy.

HE Young Men's Christian Association of the Naval Academy is a branch of the International
Y. M. C. A. Though unable to carry out the work of the International Association in its
broadest scope, it is the aim of our Association to bring the Midshipmen into closer religious
fellowship, to keep them more in touch with home life, and to encourage each other in the con-
scientious discharge of daily duties.
The Association has many obstacles to overcomeg the principal one of which is time to
properly carry on the work. This has been partly overcome this year by the fact that permission
has been granted to hold our meetings Sunday evenings instead of Sunday afternoons. Mention
is made of this because the meetings have been better, more largely attended, and because the
Association desires to express its appreciation of the interest shown by the authorities.
An important feature of the work has been the organization of Bible study groups for the
systematic study of the Bible. Progress in this work is shown by the fact that our enrollment
for the present year in Bible study work is more than double that of last.
Situated as we are, we are unable to co-operate with other Associationsg but we feel that We
have an ever widening influence not only at the Naval Academy, but throughout the world.

MONG the most pleasant features of our candidate
days will be remembered the many happy hours that
numbers of us enjoyed at "Aunt Alice's." She was
a friend at all times and her "boys" loved her as she deserved.
Though seldom called by us as Mrs. Aspold, she is known to
scores of ofhcers as Aunt Alice. Our class was the last to
know her before the grim Reaper gathered her in. She is now
with her own boy whose memory was always so dear to her.

Athletics at the Naval Academy.
HE credit of first introducing athletics at the United States Naval Academy belongs to
Admiral David D. Porter, U. S. N, who, in 1865 relieved Commodore Blake as Superintend-
ent. Previous to this time the pleasures of the Midshipmen, in their few spare hours, had been
governed by rules and regulations which might have been drawn up by the early New England
Puritans, so strict were they. The Midshipmen were supposed at all times to bear themselves
with the solemn dignity of a college professor. In fact, so strict were the ideas governing dignified
pleasure, that a number of youngsters were severely disciplined forupresuming to ask permission
to play cricket. Under Porter all was changed. He provided means for all sorts of athletics and
encouraged the Midshipmen to take part. He went so far as to set a personal example by him-
self using the gymnastic apparatus and even put on the gloves and boxed with some of the upper
classmen. It was not long before this example had its effect, and the following spring rival
baseball teams were formed by the various classes. Rowing shells were provided, and a well
appointed gymnasium was fitted up. Thus were the foundations of Academy athletics laid.
From this time on the various sports existed at the Naval Academy, though it can hardly
be said that they fiourished. The fight for the absolutely essential 2.5 was too keen to allow
any general participation in athletics.
There was, in fact, no really systematic work. This state of affairs brought about a de-
terioration in the physical standard of the battalion until it became so noticeable as to attract
the attention of the alumni at their yearly meeting. Col. Robert M. Thompson pointed out
that to develop a naval officer it was as essential to cultivate his body as his mind. Through
his untiring efforts and generous offer of prizes to the best men in the various branches of sport,
athletics were set upon a firm basis. Rowing was revived and in 1890 great stimulus was given
to football by the inauguration of inter-academy contests between the Naval Academy and
West Point. These still continue, with the addition of baseball, the chief stimulus of the
two seasons of athletic activity, the spring and fall.
The football team, crew, and baseball team, have been well supported for several years,
but unliappily, the fencing team and track team have not received the amount of attention that
they should have. Despite this fact the fencing team has won the intercollegiate fencing
championship, and the track team has made some very presentable records. Outside meets were
arranged last year for the track team for the first time, and if this policy is continued should
greatly stimulate that branch of athletics.
Few people, who have not themselves been through it, realize how much the man who goes
out for athletics gives up for the welfare of his team and for the good name of the institution.
Living under the monotonous routine of the Academy his every minute is taken up with the excep-
tion of a short hour and a half after drill. This is the time that he has to utilize for his athletics
and anyone who does not think that this is a big sacrifice needs only to try it for two months
to be thoroughly convinced.

'The Football Season.
HE football season cannot be considered as entirely successful, inasmuch as the ultimate
object of the entire season's work-the West Point game-was a defeat for the Navy
team. At the same time a review of the season shows that we have made a great step
in advance. Last year the Army hopelessly outclassed us while this year the two teams were
perhaps more evenly matched than ever before.
The first step towards the development of this year's team was taken last February. Pro-
fessor Paul Dashiel, who was to have charge of the coaching, pointed out that if the team was
to be in the same class with the Army it would have to reach a higher physical standard. Ac-
cordingly, boxing and wrestling were commenced in the gymnasium. A charging machine was
also devised and the squad set themselves to the task of developing the muscles that would be
most called upon in the coming football season. This was not fun, but everybody began to
realize that if anything was to be accomplished, just one thing would do it, and that was work,
hard consistent work. As soon as the weather permitted the men were taken out of doors and
taught the rudiments of the game: falling on the ball, handling punts, quick starting, etc. The
summer cruise put an end to this, but even on shipboard the men were to a certain extent kept
in good trim. At the end of the cruise the preliminary work ended and all hands went on
their annual leave of absence.
On September 20th a number of the older men reported for practice, and these, with the
new fourth class material at hand, commenced light practice. On October lst, all hands returned
and the real work of making a team commenced. O11 October Sth, the Hrst game of the season
was played with Virginia Military Institute, and resulted in a victory for our team, by the score
of 12-0. This score was a disappointment, but the game showed that we possessed possibilities.
It showed particularly the quality of our defensive Work, inasmuch as they were able to make
but one first down in the entire game. A game with the Marine Officers followed on October
12th, and resulted in such an easy victory that it was hardly good practice for the team. On
October 15th, we played Princeton. This was a very hard fought game and showed the men
what they could do if they went into the game with all the fight and dash that they possessed.
The price that we paid for our victory though, was high indeed. Douglass, one of our best
backs, had his leg broken and was out of the game for the rest of the year. His loss in the
back field was keenly felt the rest of the season. St. John's was defeated the following Wednesday
This game was followed by a decided slump. Dickinson held us down to a 0-0 score. This was
particularly bad as there was no doubt but that we had the better team and should have defeated
them easily. The game was lost on fumbling. But even Worse than this was our defeat by
Swarthmore the following week. A much needed brace was taken after this, and from this time
on the team continued to improve. Pennsylvania State College, which had beaten us for three
consecutive years, was defeated. The next week the heavy team of the University of Virginia
P11010 by Mrs. c. R. Minn.
' PROP. DASIIIEI..
was defeated. The last practice game of the season was played on November 19th, with
Virginia Polytechnic Institute. This also resulted in a victory. The last week was spent
putting on the finishing touches to the team for the West Point game. On November 26th,
in Philadelphia, West Point defeated us by the score of 11-U.
The coaching of the team this year was in charge of Professor Paul j.,Dashiel. He had as
an assistant throughout the year, Mr. Herman Olcott of Yale. Those who worked under them,
more than any onezelse, realize with what untiring zeal and labor they worked for the welfare
of the team. It is a pleasure to work for such men, and it is the great regret of those who graduate
this year that they will never have the chance of again working under them. Too many thanks
cannot be given the many others, old Navy players, who helped. It is only right that especial
mention should be made of the work of Lieutenants McCarthy, Bookwalder and Tardy These
and many others gave up much of their time, and put their hearts and souls into the Work of
developing a winning team. It is not the coaches fault but lack of first-class material, that
is responsible for our defeat. They succeeded in putting the Navy back into a class from which
it had fallen the year before. It is the unanimous desire and hope of the football squad that
Prof. Dashiel have charge of next year's team, for they not only realize his thorough mastery
of the game and his great ability as a coach, but they also love and respect him for the man he is.

The West Point Game.
ON Franklin Field, Saturday, November 26, 1904, was sounded the death knell of West
Point's football supremacy. lt is not a Navy custom to bedim the victory of a rival,
nor excuse defeat, but the tones of that knell were heard and understood by twenty-
five thousand people, and to one who did not hear them, this description may be interesting.
Army kicked off to Smith, who made a clean catch and behind good interference, ran it back
fifteen yards. For off side, the Army was penalized five yards. Then with hardly a break for
fifteen minutes the Navy ploughed through the vaunted Army line. A fifteen yard penalty
called for a punt, and Howard sent it down the field forty-iive yards. McClintic was right there,
but not in time to prevent Gary from running it back the noble distance of thirty-six inches.
In the succeeding three downs, Torney made five yards, but on the next, West Point was penalized
fifteen yardsf Then they tried a wonderful fake kick never known to fail. Torney chewed
turf for two yards on it, but had to kick on the following play. The best he could do was twenty-
five yards and out of bounds.
West Point was penalized live yards. Smith battered center for one yard, and Grady
followed with excellent support for six yards. Smith found center Watching and failed to gain,
while Spencer clipped off ten yards around the end. The next play netted but one yard and
Norton's quarter back kick was blocked. Thus it became Army's ball on Navy's forty yard
line. Then began the famous West Point attack. Doe, by superhuman effort, made a gain of
eighteen inches, in retaliation, the invincible Torney was ushered back for one and a half feet.
Then he kicked. Howard made a quick kick, and Gary ran ball back a few yards and fumbled.
Grady tumbled on it. And so the story goes until Tipton did his stunt. In receiving a punt,
there was a fumble, and Tipton, running from behind, booted the ball toward the Navy goal.
With coolest judgment he followed it up leading Spencer by about three yards. Again he
kicked it, and catching it on a bounce, ran behind the goal for a touchdown. Doe failed at
goal. Then came one of the most dogged battles in the history of the game. For a net dis-
tance of forty yards, it required twenty-two minutes of hard bucking and soul raking defense.
The longest gain was three yards. Five times the tape was called for to measure the distance-
usually made by about four inches. Finally Torney made a touchdown and Doe kicked goal.
Exchanging punts in which Howard had the advantage occupied the remainder of this
must submit to the inevitable.
The second half will long be remembered by lovers of nerve and endurance. Such a display
as they witnessed has never been excelled and seldom equaled. The Army, having advantage
of a stiff wind, punted frequently, although not until their hardest attempts to make their dis-
tance had proven fruitless. Time after time would the Army backs hurl themselves against
the Navy line, only to be thrown back and wonder why. Her defense was at best intermittent,
and her vaunted offense was rapidly crumbling to naught. Wilcox, Bernard and Ghormley
replaced Norton, Spencer and Smith, and with fresh blood injected, the Navy began to make
things hum. It culminated in a forty yard run by Doherty-the most spectacular feature of
the game, excepting possibly, the A1-my's first score. This added to gains by Wilcox, Bernard
and Piersol in quick succession, amounted to sixty-one yards gained in less than five n1inutes.
However, a quarterback kick gave West Point the ball, and the remainder of the game
was for the most part, a punting contest. The advantage of this half was with the Navy although
she was unable to score. Time was called, score, Army 11, Navy O.
Thus was the battle fought, and thus were our beloved Blue and Gold-replaced in their own
and rightful position-replaced by the nerve, endurance and brawn of the Navy team. That
team played ball and fought to the end in a glorious manner, and each one deserves the "Well

The Crew Season.
FTER two years of disastrous rowing on the Severn, Navy began last spring to win back
her old place among college crews. The policy of changing coaches had, by last year,
developed a stroke terrible to bet upon, so that it was not until the middle of our
rather early racing season that Mr. Richard Glendon, who had charge of the rowing squad
was able to whip his two eights into winning shape.
Although our first crew was hopelessly beaten by Penn 'Varsity in the first race, the suc-
cessful issue of the second crew-Freshman race to some extent retrieved the day. By May
7th, when Yale came down, the crew was beginning to learn the game and that race in the dark
was so close as to be almost doubtfulg indeed it was almost as encouraging as a victory.
Two weeks more of coaching found the crews in such good condition that the double race
with Georgetown resulted in a double victory for the old Gold and Blue in the fastest time evei
made on this course.
The races and time were:
Navy First vs. Pennsylvania 'Varsity . , Won by Penn, 3 lengths 10
vs. Yale College ....
vs. Georgetown 'Varsity . .
Navy Second vs. Pennsylvania Freshmen ,
vs. Georgetown Second . . .
Yale ilength 10
Navy Q length 9
Navy fl- length 10
Navy -1- length 9
Encouraged by the Work of 1aSt Spring, and by the fact that Coach Glendon, whose services
have been secured for another year, will have practically a squad of veterans to work with, we
expect to turn out a completely successful crew in the spring of 1905. Crew work alone, of all
the athletics of the Navy, enters into competition with only the Hrst-class fconsidered from a
standpoint of athleticsj colleges in the country.
The apparently bad showing made by the crew last spring, when examined, shows that the
Navy was more competent in crew work than in any other branch, to try conclusions with such
rivals as Pennsylvania, Georgetown and Yale. Next year Columbia will appear in the list of
races, and, we hope, in the list of conquests. Owing to our Summer cruise putting an end so
soon to the rowing season, Navy crews and their rivals are never in final condition, and the
time of races suilers accordingly, and comparing results of these and later races does not lead
to sure conclusions.
Navy expects soon, however, to occupy her rightful position, at the top of college aquatics.

The Baseball Season of 1904.
WHEN the early work for baseball began in the gymnasium last winter the prospects for
a team were not very promising. Only three men of last years team were leftg and of
course, nothing could be told of the raw material until they were tried out on the field.
As soon as the weather permitted, all were given a trial and the squad picked for the year.
Things looked rather bad for our first game, as the Weather did not allow us to do outdoor work
until two days before the opening of the season. But under the able coaching of Clarke in these
two days a tearn was picked and started working together. Notwithstanding the unsettled
, jj 1 , .

condition of the team, it overwhelmingly defeated Gallaudet by the score of 21 to 5. Thus
our season started and from the showing made by the new men, gave prospects of a very
The schedule this year was the longest ever arranged, and out of the nineteen scheduled games
we won eleven, making a percentage of 576. Never before has a team gone over the .500 mark.
The greatest surprise of the season came on May 14th, when we played the Army. None of
our defeats, bitter as they were, could quite equal this one 3 which came, not only as a surprise to us
but also to the Army. We were beaten fairly and squarely, owing to the Army's opportune
"bingling" our presentation of passes and lack of opportune hitting.
Thus ended the season of 1904 which, as a whole, was successful. There is only one vacancy
to fill next spring, and next year's team bids fair to be Z1 good one in every respect.

HE year of 1904 has been a successful one for the fencing team, in spite of the fact that
they did not win the Intercollegiate. Successful because they had more outside meets than
ever before 3 and, with the exception of the veterans of the New York Turn Verein, defeated
all with whom they fenced. The teams defeated were : Baltimore Fencers Club, Washington Fencers
Club, Philadelphia Fencers Club, Yale, Columbia, Pennsylvania, Cornell, and a team from Boston
Tech, composed of our captains of 1900 and 1902 and another member of the championship
team of 1900. Our greatest disappointment came when we did not win the Intercollegiate
meet at New York, for it was for this that the team had been working hard since their "Plebe"
year. Our greatest ambition had been to defeat West Point and rescue the trophy from our
soldier rivals. This year, however, theteam Will have two of last year's men who have had a
year's experience and know just what to expect and how to overcome most of the difficulties.
Fencing during the past year has been helped more than ever beforeg and, considering that
it is hard indoor Work from one end of the year to the other and that the practice affords little or
no pleasure to outsiders, who do not understand it, a great deal of thanks is due those who have
taken a real interest in the team. Probably more is due Mr. Cunningham than anyone else on
account of his energy and interest in the team from the start. What we must have, or rather
continue to have is spirit, for it is this spirit that is the foundation of all success in athletics.
Before closing let us all extend our thanks to Professor Corbesier and his three able assistants
for all that they have taught us about fencing and for what their work is going to show next

FOR any branch of athletics to succeed, it is necessary that interest be taken in it by the
Brigade of Midshipmen and by the Officers at the Academy. Where no competition With
outside teams exists this is next to impossible. Such a state of affairs had been the rule in
track athletics until our first dual meet Was held with Lafayette.
Although competing against a more experienced team, our men won on their own merits,
and showed that a good track team at the Academy is not only a possibility but a reality. It
is to be hoped that a meet with West Point will be one of the results of this good showing.
At both the Interclass and Lafayette meets, all events Were closely contested and good
time was made. Few records were broken,largely due to the poor condition of the track Q but the
men ran in better form than ever before. With the new track and greater opportunities for
outside meets, the track team will become a great factor in athletics.

HE Iirst thought of a rifle team occurred to us when we heard through the President of
the National Rifie Association that very probably a match could be arranged between
the two National Academies at West Point and Annapolis, and our chief object in organizing was
to be prepared to meet the army should the match be arranged.
The organization of the team was undertaken under particularly discouraging circumstances.
The authorities had to be persuaded in favor of a new venture, and going to and from the range
took up nearly all our recreation hours, almost to the exclusion of practice. When the call for
candidates was finally issued, however, a large number responded, and we undertook to pick
out the best team. Here again was a problem to solve and little time for doing it. We started
by getting- permission from the Commandant to have about six excused from drill each day.
By successive trial we eventually picked out the six members of the team.
We had to adapt ourselves to circumstances and go to the range whenever we could, being
excused from drill only once a week. We were working more or less on an uncertainty, and indeed
we shortly received notice from West Point, through the National Rifle Association, that they
could not meet us under any circumstances. With the chief aim of our practice thus removed,
there seemed nothing left to keep up interest in the team. We succeeded, however, in getting a
match with the Maryland National Guard Team. This meet came off during the latter part of May,
and consisted of a string of ten shots with two sighting shots for each man, from the 200 and 500
From the 200, the scores were very close, but at 500 yards, their more extended practice
told in their favor, as they won by a safe margin.
The Navy Rifle Team, however, need not be ashamed of this defeat at the hands of a team
that stood well up in the National match at Sea Girt, 1903.
The history of the team would not be complete without the acknowledgement of the services
of Lt. Thomas C. Hart, U. S. N., to whose untiring efforts in our behalf and hearty co-operation
with our plans is largly due the success that attended our effort. We wish also to express our
thanks to Lt. Comdr. W. F. Fullam, U. S. N., for the use of the rifles and range, without which,
of course, our efforts would have been futile.

The sound of taps had died at last
When down the corridor there passed
A youth, who bore a piece of ice,
And bottle with this strange device
"One quart of rye."
His brow was clearg his eye betrayed
The joy this lovely treasure madeg
And with a stealthy tread he bore,
Unto the very topmost floor,
His quart of rye.
The envious tempted him to pause,
The godly threatened him with laws,
But none were able to prevent,
And into him full soon there went
This quart of rye.
At middle night the gyrene woke
To find quite near some bottles broke,
And wasted on the floor around
Midst dust and scattered glass he found
One gill of rye.
Ah me! upon the following day
Two fair young middies sailed away
Upon a quite extended cruise
For carelessness in wasting booze,
And such good rye.
HE members of the class of 1905, who were fortunate enough to be assigned to the United
States Ships Arkansas and Nevada during the summer of 1904, and especially for the trip
up the Potomac, desire to express to the officers of those ships their sincerest gratitude for the
courteous treatment received on board. On no cruise that we have ever taken, and We have taken
severa1,were midshipmen treated with as much consideration by every officer on board ship,
and in no connection have we met with a more sympathetic system of instruction. The trip up
the Potomac will be remembered always as the pleasantest part of our Academic career, and we
take this opportunity of saluting with the deepest gratitude the captains and the officers of the
U. S. S. Arkansas and Nevada.

1. And he took his portion, and Went clown unto a preparatory school, in a far city, and
spent all of his substance in riotous living.
2. So that at the end he did go and bind himself out as a midshipman and was fain to eat
the husks that the "boys " did leave.
3. And when at last he came unto himself, he said: " In my father's firm are many partners,
and the least of these hath enough and to spare.
4. I will sit down and Write unto my father,
5. Saying, 'Father, I have spent all my shekels and thine likewise, and am no more Worthy
to be called thy son.
6. Make me as one of thy stockholders' "
7. But his father heard him yet a great Way off,
8. And ran and fell upon him and beat him and cried, saying:
9. "This was my son, which was rich and is broke, is gone and shall stay gone.
10. Bring forth the blue uniform and put upon him, and kill the Navy goat, that he may
be made to eat a stew."
ll. And so he called the sherih' and the constable, and bade them come and make merry with
him that they were rid of this spendthrift.

To Work the Whole thing in one's head.
Bone like mad Geneva stops, a
Cordelier for making mops,
Swash plates, worm Wheels, knuckle joints!
For these are most important points.
Old Red was in the greatest glee
To put the middies all at sea,
He laughed until his sides most split
To see how easily they bit.
He told a little fairy tale,
Not to study till we were pale
The differential pulley blocks,
Ferguson's simple paradox.
Slit bars, pitch cones, going fusees
Which put some sections on the trees,
Escapements, Worm Wheels, tangent screw
Of these you'll surely get a few.
Velocities with varying rates,
Some surface plates that were not mates,
Strains on belting, four bar motion,
Puzzles made to suit Red's notion.
And lo! behold the next day here
On that exam there was no cheer.
And many swore with might and main.
- -- I've busted cold again.
But on the cruise the truth came out, .
It was not Red that caused the rout,
J. K. had changed the Whole exam
So all we now can say is ----.

's Are Trumps for Men,
But 's Are Trumps For Bachelors.
HERE were once five rooms in a row in Annex C. Nothing remarkable
about that, but what's more, one man in each room was afllicted with Abilstoticus, an
affection of the heart. To each individual "she" each respective "he" would com-
pose epistles both day and night, and for each epistle would bum stamps. The five roommates
in self-defense formed a Bachelor's Club. At 9.30 they would ramble from room to room to tell
their funniest stories and to sympathize with the afflicted occupant. Sometimes they beat
hasty retreats inspired by the sudden one-half m V2 of a pair of fourteensg at other times
they would sell out for crackers, cheese, and a smoke.
As June week approached, the hearts of the married men became glad with the thought
of prospective promenades, and tete-a-tetes. The bachelors were determined not to be left
out. So they decided to have a club girl, with whom all could feel free to have a club date,
without compunctions about Hbutting in."
As a preventive measure, it was decided that three should constitute a quorum. The second
day after finding and notifying the girl, one of the club proposed that the number necessary for
a quorum be reduced to one. As the proposal was made to himself, it was met with no objection.
Thus was the breech opened which eventually disbanded the Bachelors. The friendly spirit
was conspicuously absent when more than the amended quorum was present, although to their
credit, they worked together to cut out the second classman.
The night before she left, she had dates for 9.30 with the live. Three got lost in the crowd,
but the other two became lost over by the Japanese bell.
MORAL! Don't expect a man to play fair when he's on the Santee.
One time there was a tow-haired Siamee twin who felt manly. He was encouraged by a
little Clingseed Peach who thought him a Devil. He always had his Reinhart's creased, and had
had his Buffham struck at intervals.
But one day when he was hard worked, he had an inspiration: 'fWhy not," thought he,
"have some one to do my menial laborg I am better fitted for the head work." So he resolved
that next time he took an observation of his star, there would be some one to mark time-and
see to the chaperon.
He found an old man who seemed to be a pocket edition of Father Time. His wrinkled face
gave off an expression of sadness that indicated a checkered career, and he was generally known
to have had a past.
Unfortunately for him, the Siamee thought he was safe. The old man's recollections of
younger days out West worked wonders with him. He became as spry as a two year old. Soon
he assumed the role of a vessel acting singly, and the Siamee was left in the cold.
MORAL.-If he is from Missouri, you may have to show him.
Once on a time there was a gay young Lothario who wore blue clothes. His hair was slick
as a whistle and he had a commanding presence. In society, he toned down his voice and made
quite a hit.
This chap was thought to be an easy mark by every one who had goods to sell on credit.
Non-reg. clothes were always uniform, low quarter pats were the only shoes he could wear-
he even owned a non-reg. reefer.
The last few months he was besieged by mail. Every day a bunch of Dreka's would be left
in his room for his perusal. They always brought a long grin to his countenance.
On graduation day, as soon as he received his diploma, out to the main gate he loped. But
some one was hot on his trail. The tailor caught him, and to his assistance came the butcher,
baker and candlestick maker. When they finished him, well he may get over it, but he'll never
be the same.

Oh Navy Girl! Here's a toast to you
With your hair of brown and your eyes of blue
With your smart little figure and smile serene,
The pluckiest, luckiest girl ever seen.
Our Navy Girl! Here's a toast to you-
Maid, Wife, or Widow, you're sure to be true-
If not to all sailors, then to many in one-
E Pluribus Unum, 'til all time is done.
Dear Navy Girl! Here's a toast to you,
'Twould take us an aeon to give you your dueg
But we love you as only the true sailors can,
And we empty our glasses to you to a man!

CThe Dog Starj
Once a Middy was a-writhing
Wliere the light grew dim one dayg
Almanacs were lying on the floor.
I-Ie thought of home and heaven,
And fervently did pray
To be taken to some far and distant shore.
While he knelt thus by his Bowditch
And so fervently did pray,
The tears adown cheeks so furrowed rolled:
But his prayer was never answered
For there in white array,
Came trotting in- -the "savoir" known of old
Cried he, "Ponce, surely, Ponce,
'When you see my woeful plight,
And I beg of you ,wise Ponce,
Please to help me on aright,
Can you fail to give me succor,
Can you fail to work my sight
To the billionth of a second
And to make the answer right? "
Ponce gazed awhile in silence
On the Middy all alone.
Then he sat himself right in the Middy s chan
Straightway, all the woe departed
From that Middy so alone,
And no more did helpless sobbing echo there
Ponce took the pencil firmly,
And full quickly did he plot
The location of both Sodom and Gomm-1-O11
Noah's eight a. m. position,
And the traverse course of Lot.
And converted Christmas Day into tomorrow
Then sage Ponce rose a-smiling
At the Middy, and to cheer,
With an accent quite beguiling
Said he, "Come and have a beer,
For not all the right ascensions
Of the stars that stud the sky
Can quite equal the dimensions
Of a Middy, when he's dry."
And that night in ways of fancy,
Strolled the Middy now serene,
Dreaming of sagacious Ponce,
And the things that he had seen,
P. Work now is reckoned truly,
As but play for evermore,
With dear Ponce at the pencil
And Ephemeris on the floor.
Now the Middy's father chuckles
At the good reports that come,
And he thinks his son a "savoir,
So he sends his son a sum.
Potent Ponce, all wise Ponce,
When you see this satellite
Almost suffering occultation,
Kindly set its orbit right.
When it has acute nutation
Guide with thy marvelous might
Till it fades, Oh potent Ponce,
Into day that knows no night.
EDITORS NOTE A tradition obtains at the Naval Academy of a mythical dog' named Ponce who was accredited with the
fabulous power of working out a Navigation Practical Work ln- twenty minutes. Of course this IB past belief but the story of
this marvelous animal has passed into a proverb and his name IS almost as much revered as IS that of Tecumseh the god of 2 5
E owe a great many thanks to Prof. Zimmerman and

or a hop, We could not get along without them. True, if they

OOD morning," said His Majesty, the Prince of Liars, pleasantly, leaning comfortably
back in his asbestos easy-chair, and ceasing lazily to regard the imp who was polishing
the tip of the royal tail. "Whom have We here-"
"Most Worshipful Diabolicalness-" respectfully began the dark angel, who had led the
captive in, making a salaam so low that he scratched his forehead on a good intention that pro-
jected from the fioor.
But the newcomer lost no time in ceremony, and pushing his way past the courtier he placed
himself squarely in front of the throne. "O Most Outrageous Swindler," he said haughtily,
" I have been sent here to render you service."
Satan sat up in surprise and waved back a demon who was about to thrust a Nav. p. work
under the nose of the new prisoner. "Speak on," he said. "What qualification have you
to render service to me?" f

"Stay," interrupted the newcomer with a gesture, "I have not done. I was also present
on the Summer cruise of 1902. I have made a special study of Gow probs. and was the inventor
of the steam radiator in use at the Academy. It was I who first said that all midshipmen were
idle, and that a first classman's life was one of ease and enjoyment. On the plans I submitted
were made the first dress-jackets now worn by midshipmen. It was I who concocted the brand
of booze sold at Madame's. I stated that any exam. given could be completed in twenty minutes.
In the winter it was I who persuaded the O. C. to keep the uniform "without reefersg" and "reef-
ers " from january lst to June 7th, Also, I ordered outside breakfast formation when the uniform
Was reefers all day, and kept the steam off until after November 15th. Ipersuaded Congress to

Saturday afternoon. And I--" He paused to breathe.
The Archangel of Darkness stared in amazement. "O wondrous liar! marvelous torturer!
worthy son! Thou art indeed a fertile fiend. In my domains I shall make thee second only to
myself. Henceforth art thou Grand Vizier,'IChief of the Torturers, and Inventor of Falsehoods.

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, hut the tips of the Steam Department are deceitful.
Blessed is he that standeth in the place of the clean sleever and sitteth not at the staff table,
for his ways are ways unnoticed and all his paths are peace.
The prudent man forseeth the watchman, and hideth himself, but the foolish pass on, and
are " ragged."
Consider the greaser, how he grows. He toileth not, neither doth he bone, but verily Solomon
in all his glory, was not arrayed as one of these.
Though I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not seen the lesson, I am

For though I have the gift of gah, and understand all languages, but have not a gramophone

Take care! Beware! They are fooling thee! Ever wearing like their handkerchiefs their
hearts in their sleeves. Of course, their sleeves are tight, but their hearts can easily be crushed-
infact, they are never very large except when they are in the imagination of a girl who is on her
first visit to Annapolis and who has probably just walked home from a hop with a dear little
middie who does not like t0 break regulations UD and get a carriage, and thinks as it is such a
beautiful moonlight night---and then, you know, he has a strong arm and Won't let her slip on
the ice. Foxy! Beware! !
But, dear girl, don't walk on the ice or on a ,poor pavement with them too much before the
ball or your arm will be black and blue.
But a middie at Annapolis is mild. A summer girl is pretty bad, but when it comes to a

The day is dying,
The gulls low Hying,
The wind is falling,
The ocean calm.
Sweet bells are ringing,
Sailors are singing,
Old yarns are spinning,

The bugle is culling.

THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND,
Oh, I pray thee, sweet, slender maiden, Surely hoary old Neptune had never
So wistfully looking away, A follower fairer than thou,
Would those eyes, that are almost tear laden, And in parting more fervent than ever
Were it not for this parting be gay? I answer thine eyes with the vow,
That not all of the Araby's daughters, For the depth of the limitless ocean
Nor the amorous sirens that dwell And the blue of the Midsummer sea
Midst the Mediterranean's waters Shall recall of thine eyes the devotion
Can lure my heart to rebel. As in parting they rested on me.
In the stilly night watch the caresses
Of the south wind will tell me of thee,
And the stars that are meshed in the tresses
Of night are thy thoughts upon me. .
HE fire burns low on the hearth, and the dying light of the embers fashion vague shadows
in the smoke. The scenes of other days pass in fantastic procession through my wearied
thoughts, and I live again the moments now part of that great gulf we call the Past.
I see a stranger wandering in a time-worn town, planning the great things that he should
do in the new life. I see the examination room and the crowd before the names posted on the
door. I hear the mumbled oath, and the casual "Kiss the book."
And then the blue smoke wreathes itself into a vision of the Severn, and of old buildings
clustered among graves upon its banks. I see a ship under the stars with her canvass mounting
far up into the dark sky, rocking her human freight to sleep in the sweet fresh south wind.
Faces, too, I See in the fifelight,-faces I learned to know in the years that are gone, familiar
in the tedious routine, with av smile in moment of joy and help in the hour of need. I see them
in room, in section, in ranks, on the deck of a ship, and again at that last hand grip when I bade
But the 6mbe1'S aff! neaflb' dead. The trees and buildings and ships are blended in the ashes,
and the faces are faded away. The sounds of laughter, the tones of the bugle, the shouting
of orders are sunken too faint to hear.
The old days are gone as the shadows, and the new ones lie before me
