If Archie-:'s in the right mood, he'1l tell you
all about New Bedford. Perhaps even more: he
may condescend to dispense a few tips on yachting.
For hels enthusiastic about everything he takes up,
yachting, crew, basketball and singing. Bilged
from the choir, he yet persisted in ruining "close

Company villainous fompzmy hath been lhe spoil ofmef'
A dreamer of dreams, he possesses a taste for
the classics, and has all the legends of Greek
mythology at his finger tips. Although officially
he hails from New York, he was born and bred
in New England, in fact, according to Buck,
he was originally an unsophisticated, fervent
Puritan, but candidate days destroyed most of his
youthful tastes and training. His subsequent
career at the Academy completed the work of
demolition, until at the present writing he is as
good a fellow as you would want to know.

A true genius wl1o disdaius the sordid limits
of the recitation room. His standing has sulfered
because he devotes his study hours to literary
work. As a playwright, he rivals Bernard Shaw,
as a poet, he excels Kipling. In addition to
these modest accomplishments he possesses a
truly wonderful voice, and apparently knows all
of Wagner by heart. For four years ,did noble
work against the Army, and is one of the few
who are equally successful on the football field
and at "pink teas."

JK From California, with the Westerner's frank-
' A ness and good-nature, love of adventure and
Q9 fondness for the good old American game of
"draw," At one time was very much attached
to Pennsylvania Avenue. Is rather proud of a
record of .sezfentyyive in one day! Has served the
class well in different capacities and is deservedly
popular. Never took the trouble to star until
second class year, and then did it easily. A busy
man, with hardly time to catch a smoke. A good
athlete, but doesn't like to train. Expects to
marry some day and settle down. An all-around
man and a good fellow.

N THE spring of our Youngster Year a rumor rose. This, in itself, is no
unusual thing, as all who have any acquaintance with midshipmen are
well aware. Yet this particular rumor was unusual in that it prophe-
K Q sied that which was later found to be the exact truth. At supper one
K Sunday someone casually remarked that he had heard the second class
piiyml N-E, would not make the cruise, but would be held over at the Academy and
receive two months' leave. The rumor spread rapidly and with each
repetition gathered authenticity. Of course nobody believed it, but everybody took
delight in discussing it. Hence when the order confirming the rumor was published, the
exclamation "I told you so " was outnumbered only by "I believed it all the time." But
our Surprises were not over! Privileges which we had not conceived in the wildest
nights of om- imagination were granted to us. Drills in the shade, liberty every day till
nine-tbii-ty! We appreciated these privileges all the more because they were unexpected,
but we quickly adapted ourselves to the new conditions and enjoyed every day of the
two months that each battalion spent at the Academy. A series of class hops, at which
everybody knew everybody else, contributed to our pleasure. Through the entire summer,
like 3 golden thread, 1-an the thought of the long leave either to follow or just over. The
Class was one big, happy family. Of course a few disturbances arose, but altogether
those two months were nearly ideal. To quote one of the fellows, " It was like a big house-
party without the girls."
At the beginning of the summer the class sudered the loss of one of its most loyal
members, Harry Arthur Leaphart died a few days after reaching his home, and the hearts
of his classmates all over the country Went out in deepest Sympathy to his bereaved Par'
ents, In other respects our leave passed as all vacations pass--before we realized it had come.
TWO months Slipped away just as quickly for us as one month did for the other classes.
Second Class Year is the hardest in U10 COUTSG. We have heard this statement
many times and we wish to add that we concur in it. We have passed through it and do not
believe it possible for First Class Year to be worse. Academic work began with a rush that
tgok ns off our feet. The Math and Steam Departments made first down on the October
exams, and having acquired the habit, continued to do so on nearly every other exam.
Only our daily work prevented these strong departments from gaining an overwhelming
victory. This terrific struggle is described in the language of the gridiron, for, until after
Q1 1-' U F ' Q
the Army game, the entire brigade lived in an atmosphere of football. Incidentally it may
be remarked that we are justly proud of the aid our class rendered in gaining that crowning
victory of the season.
And now We are at the beginning of First Class Year. We are ready for the fourth,
and let us hope the final, lap in our race for a diploma. The time is at hand when we shall
bring our class rings forth from the innermost depths of our lockers. Already we dream
of our June when we will each receive the blue ribbon neatly tied about a sheepskin. But
should misfortune overtake us, we have penetrated deeply enough into Academy life to
take away pleasant memories. We thank our friends in 1908 for many of these, and We
wish them all success and happiness in the broader life upon which they are entering.
We realize that in future years we shall look back upon the present time as our golden
age, and that the most pleasing feature memory will be able to recall is the fellowship
existing between classmates. The sharing of joys and sorrows, the intimate daily contact
of man to man, have cemented ties of friendship that will endure forever. During the past
month we have been oppressed by the thought that next September the old company
organizations will be destroyed. Those who have been most closely associated for the
past three years will be separated. And upon the heels of this thought another creeps
into our minds-this separation is but preliminary to the great scattering that will follow
graduationg we have but one more year together.

M ,,n4 Vs ,,, OUR bare walls and a vast solitude surrounded the lowly plebe. He
PQ knelt on the cold floor before a pile of math books, his head bowed in
Wfj fi' ix . earnest supplication for strength to assume the dignity of a mighty
" " youngster on the morrow. Through numberless days had he toiled and
vi, N I fought for this, his hour of triumph. With his bare hands alone he had
QV, ' D ' N-Q, wrested victory from the hydra-headed "Dago," by the strength of his
1 noble mind excalibluff he had carved his way to a 2.5 through the
English hosts. But now a hideous shape barred his path, a monster evolved from the
nethermost depths by the Math Department. This horrible monster bore down upon
him, its course a curve of the nth degree. Fascinated by the ease with which this demon
described these wonderful evolutions, our plebe stood spellbound. Suddenly a great
fear seized his heart as he saw his beloved comrades vanish before this monster. He
turned to flee: there was no escape. With a piercing cry of anguish he fell upon his knees
and prayed. Mingled with his prayer, the dulcet strains of reveille came sweetly to his
earsg the plebe arose that day to bear with beseeming tougeness the brazen shield of
It was with great inward rejoicing that we awoke that memorable morning to realize
that plebe year was indeed but a nightmare of the past. Forgotten were the days when
with quaking knees we first furled sail on the Severn. Those phantoms of our first exams
and those memories of our valiant array on the parade ground were held among the secrets
of the past. Clad in robes of spotless white, we sat in state upon a regal throne of laundry
bags. Before our straining eyes the fair delights of our first hop passed en promenade,
and hard it was to be torn away from joys so newly found. Thus it was, with Dame Rumor
holding visions of a most wondrous voyage, that we embarked upon our Youngster Cruise.
From the Olympians' standpoint the cruise was the finest ever. After we had
shaken the dust of Jamestown from our feet, and our clothes, and our hair, and-well, after
that life was nearly perfect happiness. We felt keenest regret, however, when the receipt
of orders transferred forty-four of our class to the Severn. In the depths of dejection the
"wind-jammersl' bid us a sad farewell. We felt for them, but the gloom was too thick.
The good ship " Olymp " proved to be one of those liberty boats which are called
away often. We looked in upon New York, and made an extended stay in Bath, but our
real summer home was at New London. Everywhere there was much liberty, royal enter-
tainment, and great rejoicing. So taken were we with our various habitats that it was
nearly impossible to return to the ship, and many felt keen sorrow when we once more
weighed anchor for Crabtown.
The "Luckless 44N encountered contrary winds on the Chesapeake. Every letter
from classmates on the " Olympia " evoked a terrible outburst. Excursion parties were
few, and we forgot the meaning of that divine word "Liberty!" The opportunities for
rest and quiet afforded by Solomons was very fine, but everyone welcomed the day we
were cast upon the wharf to return no more. Dippy with joy, the tune of "Belvedere"
saw us safely moored in Bancroft, with two whole days to plan for leave.
O Leave !-muse of flying hours! goddess of sweetest moments! Why canst thy
smile not last forever? Our sentence read, "thirty days," but no prisoner in dungeon deep
ever welcomed the light of day more than we. Thirty days of all-excelling bliss, visions of
loveliness, delights unpictured by the wildest flights of imagination. We are loath to
chronicle the devastation wrought our hearts by the fair ones at home, we might tell of
hearts left behind, we could easily name a few honored classmates who had a terrible time
getting back, but we shall not.
Let it suffice-we're here because we're here, etc., ad infinitum, or until the ans. Back
once more to a dreary world of poverty stricken marks, but joy is ours. Why? Because
we are youngsters now! VVe heed not the present nor fear the future. A current rumor
once impudently asserted that Calc was hard. Violent death was his portion. An awe-
inspiring Skinny Seeress once prophesied destruction for us, but we put not our faith in
seeresses. Since our space has its limits we shall not attempt to enumerate our troubles.
Consideration for the troubles of our friends moves us to sympathy, but we cannot confine
it here. It behooveth not youngsters to present the advice of sages, but let all our friends
heed the old saw that saith, " I-Ie gettcth best from out the woods who hitteth not the trees."

Q'0""'f ISTORY presupposes a past and some degree of development. The man
" X andthe nation have a history. The babe and the tribe have only the
yi v i, baldest annals. Still, as the present becomes the future, babes grow
f N' ' ' 1 into men, tribes become nations, and annals are born anew into history,
so the Class of 1911, being yet a babe, has an uneventful past, an active
7, present, and an expectant future. Its history, therefore, is neither full
The class entered about two hundred and ninety strong, a number which marks it as
the largest class that has come to the Academy in some years. It comprised the usual
variations of height and build, of flgure and form, of disposition and capacity, but it was a
unit in its standard of color, which was a decided and visible green. Though the prep egg
had become the plebe chick, the tint of inexperienee colored its down, and it walked in a
uniform hue. But walking was not its only or principal occupation, important as it is in
the development of babyhood.
The class mottof--if the memory of Latin had not entirely departed-might have been
"otium cum dig.," with all the accent and stress upon "dig.," and the "otium" to be taken
in homeopathic doses only. The class hardly knew itself to be entered when the summer
days were spent in the unending round of drills which help to mold the varied cit into the
unvaried mid. The setting-up exercise discovered and wrenched every muscle that had
carefully and modestly hidden itself since earliest boyhood daysg inspection after inspec-
tion showed how dust, as well as hours, will fly, and unsuspected specks will linger, infantry
tactics--well named infant-ry so far as 1911 was concerned-were far from recalling the
infant joys of unrestricted youth, and cutter and launch drills brought to light any lurking
points of possible anatomical development which had not yet been strained.
Then came the summer cruise. Neptune smiled, or rather laughed, to himself as 191 1
embarked, and winked a nautical eye to the'Tritons and the sea-gods of his court. The
cruise was full of 'fknotsf' Wliat we did not do would fill volumes. We did 1101 find eggs
in the crow's nest, we did not see hens in the hatchway, we did 71,01 Chase Cats in the dgg
watch, we did not weigh anchor with the galley scales, and we did not fear ghosts in the main
shrouds. We did sail twenty knots or so from the Academy groundgy and we did attempt
a hundred or so impossible knots with every possible rope. Old Neptune wasted none of
his strength upon usg he despised the greenness of our youth and refused to test our nerve.
A capful of wind and waves at least a foot high were the sea's baptism of 191 1.
Having thus escaped the dangers of the sea, we were glad to land again upon the
Academy grounds. Drills were somewhat varied with summer athletics, and several track
meets of the class brought forth likely material for future development, as well as made an
enjoyable break in the regular routine. Daily recitations soon began, to which, in our inno-
cence, we had been eagerly looking forward. At once did the terrors of the sea and the
terrors of drill vanish into space, and there loomed before us the greater and more tangible
terrors of math, mech drawing and French. The favorite roost of many of us then became
some conspicuous branch of a well-filled tree. Recollections of the summer time grew into
a vision of a Paradise from which we had been driven, and the present could only be worthily
sung in a canto of the first portion of Dante's immortal song. These recollections were
enhanced when Christmas had come and gone, and the examinations of the semi-annual
period were upon us. Many a brave hero was so badly wounded that he was obliged to
return to lessstrenuous toil in civil life, and many more were lagging far in the rear. But
to those who Ifell, and to those who came through, there was the glorious day, never to be
forgotten-the day at Philadelphia when the Army went down to defeat before the invincible
Navy team. Then did the poor plebe begin to realize that the sun which that day shone so
gloriously might one day cast a beam or two on him.
And so does the year pass, with much of work, something of play, and a portion of
sorrow in its train. We can overcome the work, we can enjoy the play, but we cannot
wholly forget the sting of the sorrow. Early in the year we lost, by death, two of our class-
mates-Howe and Van Phinney. We miss them in their accustomed places, and shall
keep their memory fresh in our minds.
On the gate of his Inferno, Dante inscribed the fateful words: "Abandon hope, all ye
who enter here." But herein does the gate through which the plebe enters upon his naval
career differ from that described by Dante: Over his gate hope sheds a golden light of
expectancy, which becomes more and more of a realization as he passes onward from month
to month. Trials are forgotteng work becomes its own reward, discipline begets develop-
ment, and the sure passage of time brings the humble plebe nearer and nearer to the object
of his ambition and the summit of his hopes-the first day of Youngster Year.

G' T ' shadow an armed sentinel ever paces to and fro, carries to the imagina-
Xf xx tive mind a suggestion of a city of long ago-a city of the time when
" 1 gates were shut at sundown to keep out the terrors of the night, a castle
! that depended upon stone and moat for protection against arelentless
,I foe. Forgotten for a moment is the prosaic reality of the twentieth
century, and the thoughts fly back to some slashing scene of chivalry
made memorable. perhaps, by the pen of Scott or Malory. The heavy gates, the omni-
present sentinel, the imminent guard-house-all suggest the inflexible sway of military
despotism. In fact, one gains a very depressing conception of the unexplored interior
from his first sight of the old Main Gate.

the Armory, the scene of a vast amount of the midshipman's work and play. Time after

gala dress of a hop night.

The Santee wharf gets its name from an old, mast-

Civil VVar. The old Santee now serves solely as a

aware of the joys of turning out of a hammock on
eold winter mornings and starting on the long march

Full honor is due to the savoir-
They'll need all his knowledge some dayg
He's a credit, of course, to the Service,
And useful in more than one way.
But when you are thinking of glory,
Remember the man who, it seems,
Gives up every day to athletics-
You'll see him on all of the teams.
He gives up his liberty weekly,
He gives up his hours of play,
And at night he's completely exhausted
From the physical work of the day.
For weeks of each separate season
Of football, or baseball, or crew
He's willing to sacrifice standing,
For the sake of the old Navy blue.
Few know of the heart-tending hours
He has while he fights for his place,
For Victory graces his labors
And brings only smiles to his face.
The finest in mind and body,
The Finest in character strong,
He fights out the Navy's hard battles
While you cheer him on with your song.
He is known to the ends of the ocean-
Every time that he wins they rejoice,
He's helping the cause of the Navy-
Their praises go up in one voice.
So come, everyone, to do honor-
To sing all your songs and to cheer
The man who does most to establish
The spirit we prize so much here.

THLETICS at the Academy occupies a very peculiar, not to say anom-
alous, position. On the one hand, while we are encouraged by all the
officers to devote a great deal of attention to every possible branch, on
the other we find that after the studies, drills, and other duties are
over for the day there remains but a scant hour of daylight for
athletic work. At all of the universities and colleges where the best
teams are turned out, the men who go in for athletics are allowed great
latitude in the matter of recitation cuts and general preparedness in the daily lessonsg
here everybody is required to do the same work, whether he be the best player on a team or
a man who knows not the Hrst principles of training, athletic effort is in the nature of an
addition, a thing virtually extraneous. In view of these circumstances and adverse con-
ditions we are right in feeling proud of the athletes who represent us.
All of the teams that have borne the Navy colors during the past year have been
notable ones. In baseball last spring, although we were defeated by the Army, the defeat
was admittedly due to a freak of fortune, and in the reviews of the season by the baseball
critics we were rated fourth among the universities of the country. The crew, as should
be the case with the crew of a naval institution, was the one most' feared by the Northern
coaches at the Poughkeepsie regatta last june, and although too much has perhaps been
said concerning the wind and tide conditions on that occasion, we are yet convinced that
ours was the strongest eight on the river. The track team went through the season, as it
has through the past four seasons, undefeated, though meeting such teams as Johns Hopkins,
Carlisle, and Swarthmore, and the fencing trophy, thanks to the success of Dichman, Bur-
dick, and Brandt, once more rests in its accustomed niche in the Armory. Basketball
should also come in for its meed of credit, for while yet in its infancy, it had a remarkable
record during the winter. But the team of which we are the most proud-the team that so
nobly realized our hopes and fulfilled our expectations-was the sturdy one which, on Frank-
lin Field, for the second successive year, humbled the Army and made it bow its head in the
dust of the football gridiron. After a season of hardship and deprivation, of heart-breaking
work and worry, it defeated a West Point team that, according to the statement of the Army
coaches, was the best they had ever produced, and won for itself, besides the heartiest
approval of the Academy and the whole Service, well-merited recognition from the entire
football world in the picking of all-American teams.
From the time of entrance to the full completion of a midshipman's course, it is im-
pressed upon each and every one that he is expected personally to make some effort to raise
the general standard of athletics. This accounts for the fact that, although our total
enrollment seldom exceeds eight hundred, when the call goes out for candidates for football,
baseball, crew, or track, the squads at first number more than a hundred men each. Be-
gdes these, the aspirants for each of the other branches-shooting, basketball, fencing, gym,
tennis and lacrosse-are numbered rather by the score than by the dozen. If the regular
sduads are already overcrowded with better men than he, that fact does not deter the
ambitious midshipman from trying for a place on some one of the class or company teams.
for it is upon the constant and unvarying interest of the student body that athletic success
depends. S0 it is that each of us, appropriating to himself some share of the credit, takes
pride in presenting our athletic tcams for your consideration.

The success of a Navy Football Team has always de-
pended upon the outcome of the West Point game. Every
midshipman realized this factg consequently on September
2Ol1l1-13611 days before the end of leave-thirty ambitious men
I Q reported for early practice. Scotty MacMaster received them
with open arms. and emphasized the welcome by putting all
in strict trainingg while Lieutenant-Commander J. M. Reeves,
Head Coach, and Field Coaches Gates, Weynioutli, Long,
Karns, Howard, Spencer and Piersol began getting a team
into form for the St. j'ohn's game on October zd. The result
of this game-Navy, 263 St. Iohn's, o-showed that the Navy had good material, but that
it needed much development. St. John's was light but played a hard game. For the
Navy, Lange at quarter and DeMott and Dague at end showed up remarkably well. but
there was a weakness in the backfleld which resolved itself into the biggest problem the
coaches had to solve. On October 5th the Dickinson Team went down to defeat by the
score of 1 5 to 1, the largest we had ever piled up against them. For the first time in the
season Captain Douglas was in the game. He played in beautiful form and gave great
strength to the weak backfield.
On the following Wednesday, Maryland Agricultural College was defeated by the small
score of I2 to o. The visitors showed a remarkable defense, while the Navy was not up to
the form of the week before. However, the low score called for harder work, and the coaches
certainly put the squad through their paces the next few days in order to get a team to meet
the strong Vanderbilt eleven on October I2th.
For the past three years the Vanderbilt team, known below Mason and Dixon's line
as the "Commodores," have developed the strongest team in the South. The Navy game
would give a basis for comparison of Southern and Eastern football: consequently much
interest was aroused both at the Academy and in the entire South over the "Commodore-
Admiral" game. Vanderbilt was very fast, and showed a great variety of plays and well-
executed forward passes. The Navy relied more on straight football, and played a kicking
game, Doug delivering longer and better-placed kicks than did Blake of Vanderbilt. After
the first nine minutes of play one of Douglas' long punts bounded over Costen's head, and
Cracky fell on the ball on Van-
derbilt's thirty-yard line, from
which position we soon carried C
it over the line and kicked the
goal. Until the latter part of
the second half neither team
was able to score againg then, EJ I , .
with but four minutes to play,
the "Commodores" secured a
touchdown from a beautiful
forward pass, kicked the goal
and tied the score.
During the next week the
attention of the coaches was
directed solely to preparing the
team for meeting Harvard on
October 19th. The Navy team

and but for a weakness in handling punts, the score would have been a tie instead of 6 to o
in the Crimson's favor. This was the first football game we had ever played with Harvard,
and we were more or less elated over the result of this hard contest played so early in the
season. The Lafayette game was on the following Saturday. This team had been playing
great football, so we expected a hard fight for victory. Lafayette's team was not a weak
one, but early in the game it was seen that ours had the advantage, both in new football
and in individual work, the playing of Douglas, Northcroft, Wright and Dague being
especially brilliant. The score-Navy, 17, Lafayette, o-showed the Navy's advantage over
their strong opponents in one of the best exhibitions of football cvcr seen on the Academy
November 2d was a most disagreeable day, and the West Virginia game had to be played
in a blinding storm on a field covered with water. The score was Navy 6, West Virginia o,
but weather conditions were so bad that it was impossible to compare the playing of the
two teams. The Swarthmore game was played on November 9th, and resulted in our defeat
by the score of 18 to o. The Navy team was greatly weakened by the absence of both
Meyer and Wright, the visiting team was heavy, and our line could not withstand their
attack, though the score was largely due to O'Brien's clever drop-kicking.
With but two weeks remaining until the Army game we played the strong Penn State
eleven. Both teams regarded this game as an important one and both fought hard to win.
Penn State scored four points on a drop kick in the first half, and while during the remainder
of the game they showed more ability in advancing the ball, they were never able to secure
a touchdown. In the last few minutes of play Cracky Dague gathered in a fumble and
carried the ball over for a touchdown, making the final score 6 to 4. Though Penn State
had a fast team and played a clean, sportsmanlike game, Navy's showing was not yet up to
the standard desired for the West Point game, the '
positions back ofthe line being still more or less
On the following Saturday came the V. P. I.
game, the last before the one on Franklin Field.
We scored twice and kicked both goals, there was
great improvement over the work of the previous
week, and the backfield problem was well solved
by giving the positions to Douglas, jones and
Reifsnider. Everyone was pleased with the result,
and all felt that we had a team which could realize
our ambitionn-it could beat the Army.

The season had been a success, and a strong
team had been developed. Our line was one of
the best in the country-the center trio, Wright,
Slingluff and Meyer, always had the jump on their
opponents, at tackle, Northcroft and Leighton ARRANGING DETAILS
could be depended on for the same steady game at
any time, DeMott and Dague, as ends, were in every
play with a strength and energy that nothing could
stop. Lange at quarter knew football and had the con- LT'-COMDR REEVES
fidence of his team, always played a heady game, and
at times made phenomenal runs around end and through a scattered Held. In backs
Reifsnider and jones could always be depended on, while the work of Captain Douglas
was, perhaps, the most brilliant ever seen at the Academy. Besides these, a host of sub-
stitutes, such as Strother, Magruder, Boynton, Burg, Stoer, Strauss and Reinicke, could be
relied upon to fill ably any accidental vacancy.
Too much credit cannot be given to the Hustlers. They
worked like fiends, took without a murmur the knocks and
lickings that were coming to them every day, and did more than
anyone else towards the hardening-and development of the
Varsity. We owe more than we can ever pay to all the coaches
for the interest they have taken and for work they have done.
As for Scotty MacMaster, he simply lived in Misery Hall with
the work he was doing, but on November ,goth "ivery mither's
son of thim was in foine condition," and we thank Scotty for it.
All these people have, as their reward, the hearty thanks not
only of the midshipmen, but of the entire Navy.

In 1906 the baseball team was practically a First Class
affair, seven of the players being members of the Class of 1907.
The graduation of so many good men left us in rather a bad
way, and with the exception of second sack and baekstop,
which were filled by Bacon and Hambsch, it was up to us to
make a new team, and there were many fights for places.
I.ombard's successor, Van Auken, had the candidates out
soon after the semi-ans, and practice began in the Armory
under the very excellent supervision of Dave Fultz, of the
'LI-Iighlanders." He certainly had a job before him to pick a good team from only fair
material, and to a great extent it is owing to him that we made the creditable showing that
we did-for it was a creditable showing in spite of the fact that we lost the Army game.
We started off the season on March 23rd with our old friend St. john's, and it was all
Navy from the start-7-2 tells the story. There were many, many errors, but at least it was
a good beginning. Next came three good ones in succession-
Columbia, Yale and Cornell. In the first, darkness was all that saved
them, as it was, the game was called with the score a tie. Then Yale,
some say we were bluffed from the start-perhaps we were, but the gk-:Y
score certainly doesn't show it: 4-1 in the Blue's favor at the end of
the fifth doesn't necessarily mean that we would have been as far
behind in the ninth. There is, however, nothing to say in regard to
the Cornell game. They found us for about fifteen hits and crossed the
plate a dozen times to our twice. Not very encouraging, but a new
team has to learn the game. Syracuse had to leave on an early train,
and only four innings of that game were played, though it was "no
game," they were ahead when they left.
After these four games, we braced up a bit and took the next two.
We strolled around the bases seven times and shut out Gallaudet 3 then
took the V. M. I. gameM8-3. But Dartmouth, with everybody
strong with the stick, as Cornell had been, showed us up rather
badly. They netted about fourteen bags and trimmed us-7-2. It
is not to be inferred from all this that we lost on the strong batting
of the visitors alone-far be it such, we managed to tally a few in
the last column every game.
Harvard spent a week here, and during that time the playing
took a decided turn for the better. VVe played a double-header on
the 13th of Aprilg Lafayette was a little late in showing up and the
Crimson kindly offered to help us relieve the suspense of the fans. In
one of the best games of the season we were one in the lead at the end R, K, TURNER

of the seventh, with the score 3-2. We felt better and saw light ahead-but, oh, what a
fall in the second game! Lafayette ambled around the diamond for eight, We managed
to earn one. Then "Fair Harvard" again Wednesday, a bunch of horseshoes, good
hitting on their part and two in the last column for us gave them four runs in their half of
.. '- L ' 'l V ,L
thelhrst. Then it was "Even Stevens" for eight innings, with no scoring on either side.
We tried conclusions again the next day: 8-1 in their favor-"nuff sed."
After this we struck a Winning streak and took nine straight. It really looked as if
the team had found itself at last, and that the hard games during the first of the season had
I 'li ' -' A -L
had their effect. Every man hit the ball harder and played better inside baseball. We
started off with johns Hopkins, 3-1 5 University of Georgia, 4-IQ St. -Iohn's, 5-3g Maryland
Athletic Club, 3-I3 A. 85 M., 7-I: R9-11d01Ph-M-HCOI1, S'2QW31bTOOk, 2-O, University of Penn-
sylvania, 5-4, and Dickinson, 4-2. Outside of the 3-2 game with Harvard, the Penn game
was the best game played. After this our chances looked good to trim the young gentlemen
on the Hudson. The last week of the season, the strong Sparrows' Point team-a semi-
professional team from Baltimore-came down and played us a couple of games. They
won the first, but had to fight for it. The second was a tie, 4-4. In this latter game it is
a curious fact that there Were three home runs made, the only ones during the season. We
had them 4-o, and with the bases full their catcher settled a long one out in deep right
center, driving them all in before himg the game ended 4-4, their time being limited.
With these last three weeks of victories we ended up the season at home in a blaze of
glory. From practically nothing We had made a good strong team--a team that would
make any aggregation of ball-players sit up and take notice. It was a team that was more
than Ht to represent us against the Army.

During the past four years, under the tutelage of
"Dick" Glendon, of the Boston Athletic Association, the
Navy crew has developed from an unrecognized quantity
to one of the most important factors in the intercollegiate
rowing worldg a glance at the Navy's record is sufficient to
Over a hundred men responded to the call for candi-
dates, and when Glendon arrived, February Ist, the long
grind on the machines, the work-outs in the tank, the
strenuous stunts in the gym, all so essential, were taken up in earnest, as a result we
were able to put five crews on the water as soon as the ice was off the river. The Varsity
quickly rounded into shape, and the day of the Georgetown race
and in prime condition. The water was very unsatisfactory, and
the slow time--more than two minutes below the Academy
record-can be accounted for by the fact that half a gale was
blowing up the course, thus making good blade work impossible.
However, the Navy oarsmen showed not only splendid arm, back
and leg work, but particularly Hne head work, upon which the
outcome of any race so much depends.
Georgetown got the jump at the start, but after the half-mile
mark it could be seen that it was merely a question of how far thc
Navy would lead at the finish. Our crew crossed the line six
lengths ahead of the collegiansg time, rr minutes, SI seconds. The
race with Yale, scheduled for May ist, was prevented on account
of weather conditions, much to the regret of the brigade and both
crews. At this time there was considerable discussion as to
whether or not the midshipmen had a crew good enough to make
a creditable showing at Poughkeepsie. Columbia came down,
May I8'Cl1, feeling confident after their decisive victory over
I-Iarvard's big eight. The day was almost ideal, and an unusually
large crowd turned out to back the crew in this, the hardest of
the season's races in local waters, and they were not disappointed.
The Navy crew took the lead at the start, but Columbia cut this
down until at the mile mark the winner could not be picked.
Our men were pulling with Poughkeepsie in view, however, and
when little "Red" sang out. "Hit her up!" Jonas vibrated.
Columbia was unable to respond to this killing spurt, and the Navy
crew crossed the line a length and a half to the 'good, amid the

noise of screeching whistles and air-splitting cheers. Both crews showed almost perfect
watermanship, and there was nothing to choose in the gameness of either. Time, ro
minutes, 33 seconds. '
The season on the Severn was brought to a close on june Ist with a four-cornered race
between the Vespers and Central High School, both of Philadelphia, and the Navy 2nd and
3rd crews. Notwithstanding the lateness of the season, the day was one of the most dis-
agreeable ever experienced by our crews. The rain was falling in torrents, and a cold,
westerly wind was blowing across the course, making fast time, or any comparison of the
crews, impossible. The order at the finish was: Navy 3rd, Navy 2nd, Central High, Vespers.
Distance, 15 miles, time, ro minutes, 36 seconds.
The decisive victory over Columbia convinced the powers that be that the Navy crew
was among the "top-notchers" and capable of competing with the other big crews of the
country at the Intercollegiate regatta on the Hudson. The invitation of the stewards
of the regatta was consequently accepted, the expenses being defrayed by voluntary sub-
scriptions from graduates, and Glendon began to train the crew for a four-mile race. June
6th, the brigade embarked on the summer cruise. The crew squad remained in Crabtown
for practice on the Severn until june 14th, when they left for Poughkeepsie. There had
been considerable difficulty in obtaining training quarters for the crew, but Colonel Thomp-
son, like the true friend that he is, came to the front and offered us the use of his houseboat
"Everglades," which we gladly accepted.
The Navy crew went to Poughkeepsie a "dark horse," and when it appeared on the
river was closely watched by the coaches of the other six competitors. The good time
made during several time rows over the full four-mile course caused the rowing experts to
pick our crew as a possible winner, and for the first time in years, Cornell stock went down.
These hard time rows were alternated with easier stretches up and down the Hudson,

Glendon handling the crew in
such a manner as to make the
other crews sit up and take
T notice. The eight were kept
in excellent condition, thanks
to Scotty's good grub and
the culinary achievements of
Tanyki, Colonel Thompson's
Jap steward. The week
passed quickly, everybody
looked forward to the day of
the race, and speculation was
rife among the daily papers as
to the outcome, Cornell, Co-
lumbia, Syracuse, Wisconsin,
and the Navy, each in turn,
being picked as the favorite.
The morning of June 25th, the sun rose in all its splendor, not a' ripple stirred the surface
of the classic Hudson. Pleasure craft darted hither and thither, jockeying for anchorages
at the finish near the "battle boats" which had astounded the unsuspecting natives upon
their arrival the evening before. Long before noon the quiet town of Poughkeepsie was
alive with enthusiasts Hying the colors of their favorite colleges. The "Ponadnock" was
kept busy transferring the crowds to the west shore, where the observation train was wait-
ing, and both banks were crowded with sight-seers.
About 2.30 P. M. the sky clouded over, and a moderate breeze blew directly up the
course. The Varsity four-oared race, two miles, was started at 4 P. M. and was won handily
by Syracuse. The Freshman race was pulled off at 4.45 P. M. and was won by Wisconsin.
The wait occasioned by these races only served to make the crowds more impatient for the
"big race," which was scheduled to start at 6 o'clock.
However, the breeze had frcshened, the river was very choppy, and the referees post-
poned the race until quarter to seven, in hope that the wind would go down with the sun.
At this time the crews lined up, and as each went to its stake boat was cheered by the rooters
in the observation train op-
posite the start. The inside
crews had the advantage of a
slight lee, while the crews 1- 1--4 I

were in rough water. Navy
was unfortunate enough to draw
the outside position.

long, long fight. Navy jumped ahead nearly a length before the others seemed to wake
The crews rowed fairly even for the first half mile, when Georgetown commenced to
drop behind. At the mile, Navy was still in the lead, with Columbia and Cornell even, and
gaining inch by inch, though our crew was rowing like a beautiful machine. The rougher
water was beginning to tell, however, and at the two-mile mark the Navy crcw's lead over
Cornell and Columbia was measured in inches only. From here to the three-mile mark,
Navy lost steadily, fighting with Pennsylvania for third place. As they passed under the
Poughkeepsie bridge, Jonas put the stroke up and the Navy eight let out a burst of speed
that showed what was in them. Fighting against heavy odds, they crept up on the leaders
until when over a half mile from the Hnish they were but three lengths behind. Here they
struck still rougher water with the swash of the boats following the race and the pleasure
craft at the Hnish, and it was all they could do to keep their boat above water. Sirens
screeched, whistles blew, the midshipmen and W'est Pointers on the monitors and observa-
tion train cheered'-but all in vain. Through the choppy sea Navy couldnlt gain an inch.
Cornell in a great spurt at the hnish won over Columbia by a few feet, while Navy finished
third, three lengths behind, followed by Pennsylvania and Vlliseonsin. Georgetown dropped

Few who saw this race realize the difference in conditions under which the various
crews rowedg few are in a position to compare and Consequently but few have given the
Navy crew the credit which it deserves. llfhen we stop to consider that the crews by whom
we were beaten finished the race with comparatively dry boats, while the Navy rowed at
least a mile and a half with its shell half full of water, we cannot but feel proud. of the
showing made by our crew. On one point all rowing experts agree-that Ingram was
without doubt one of the finest stroke oars ever developed in this country. We are proud
of our crew. From Davis to little " Red "-from bow to stern-they did their work, and
did it well. Too much Credit cannot be given them. To Lieutenant-Commander N. E.
Irwin we owe a vote of thanks, for the fact that we went to Poughkeepsie is due, in great
part, to his interest and energy.
DAVIS, R. H.
This year we hoped to get another chance at Pough-
keepsie, but the authorities have seen fit to discountenance
entry into outside events, and we must content Ourselves
with races On the Severn. The schedule has suffered by
the loss Of the usual races with Yale and Pennsylvania,
and the only Varsity races it seems possible to arrange are
with Columbia and Harvard. It is our good fortune to
have Glendon with us again this spring, and we hope for
as good a season as has ever gone before. The showing of
our crew is due to " Dick," whose untiring effort and clean
sportsmanship have won not only the love and respect Of
all who have worked under him, but also the admiration
and unbounded confidence of the entire brigade.

Beginning with the brightest of outlooks, the 1907
Track Season fulfilled all our hopes in every way, for
records fell in each meet, every one of which the Navy
won. To break a record now is no mean feat, and when
done it reflects great credit on the man who shows his
grit by putting in the work necessary to win the letter.
To win the green N now means more than it ever did.
The season began on April zoth with the Interclass Meet. The showing made was
remarkable, especially that of the plebes, who gave the second class a close run for first
place. Records were broken in the half-mile run and the pole-vault by Emmet and
Stephenson, respectively. The scores were: IQO8, 455-Q 1909, 1953 IQIO, 42. The third
section only of 1907 being left, there was no team entered for the first class.
The next meet was with johns Hopkins University, on May 4th. This unexpectedly
proved to be the closest meet of the year. McConnell broke the shot-put record by over
two feet, bringing it up to 40 feet, 2-2 inches. Stephenson continued his good form in the
pole-vault and made the record xo feet, 6 inches. The score-Navy, SI 3 J. H. U., 45. On
the following Saturday came our first dual meet with Carlisle, which accordingly attracted
a great deal of interest. We expected a difiicult meet, and each man had worked hard to
be in perfect condition. The two-mile run was added to the list of events at the request
of the Indians, and to the surprise of all, Rankin won this event in fine form, establishing a
record of IO minutes, IQ seconds. Billy, of Carlisle, broke the Academy record in the
hammer-throw. The general
good work of the Navy team --
brought a well-earned victory.
On May 18th Swarthmore sent
down a strong team, and the
teams were so well matched
that six records were broken
and one cqualed during the
meet. The mile run was
broken by Baker, of Swarth-
more, Rankin running a very
close second. Kreuger, of the
collegians' team, broke both

throw recordsg LeBourgeois,

second in the latter event, also broke the record. Emmet lowered
the time of the 880-yard run, Burg made a new mark in the 220-
yard hurdle, Stephenson added three inches to the pole-vault, and
Carey equaled his own record of 22 seconds in the 22o-yard dash.
The score was-Navy, 57, Swarthmore, 39.
To Mr. P. J. Finneran, our coach and trainer, great credit is due
for the most successful season of the Track Team's career. He has
brought the team from a minor position to a place in the front rank
among the secondary collegesg since he came, three years ago, all
the records in both the track and field events have been broken at
least once, and the greater number of them repeatedly. For his
constant efforts and patient instruction we wish to extend him our
very earnest thanks.
The prospects for the season of 1908, at the time of closing
this record, could not be better. Though we have lost some weighty
men, the old material we have is of the best, and we expect several
additions of the best order, concentrated effort should turn out a
better tcam than ever before. We hope to meet Carlisle and Swarth-
more again, and efforts are being made to bring Columbia down to

WING, perhaps, to the impetus given fencing in 1907, there has been more
interest taken in the work this yearg the squad exceeded all former
E gp ,aff F xx ones in size, there being about forty candidates at the start. Our second
" 1 class year, the Navy team was successful in every meet held in Annapolis,
Wjfvfu I and it closed the season in a blaze of glory by winning handily the
Nfl, A Intercollegiate Tournament held in New York, thus bringing back the
fencing trophy once more where it belongs.,
In former years all the academies and colleges in the Association sent their teams to
New York, where one big meet was held, the winning team being that which had' won
the most bouts. In the year just past, however, this plan was changed, owing to the
difficulty of getting all the colleges represented, and a new procedure substituted. The
territory under the Association is divided into districts, with three teams in a district,
shortly before the Tournament triangular meets are held which decide what teams are to
compete in the hnals. The meet held in Annapolis between Cornell, Pennsylvania, and
Navy sent our team to New York.
In the Intercollegiate Tournament held this year in New York, on the afternoon and
evening of March 28th, the Army won Hrst place, with 22 bouts to her credit, Navy was
second, with 21 bouts, while Cornell and Columbia tied for third place, each having won
15. The team that represented the Academy was composed of Burdick, captain, IQO8,
Knauss, 1908, and Brandt, 1909.
Not many people realize the hard training and close application to the everyday
routine that are necessary to develop the successful fencer. His season extends over prac-
tically the entire year, for the fine points of the sport depend upon rigid attention to every
detail-there is no royal road to a knowledge of fencing, self-reliance, a cool head, a clear,
quick eye, and great activity of mind as well as body are essentials to success. Wlien a man
FENCING TF OFHY
steps on the mat, it is to iight his own battle: he has no
team-mates to help himg he must do his own thinking and
To Professor Corbesier, above all others, are we in-
debted for what has been done here in fencing. He has
given the sport a lifelong devotion, and to his unfailing
interest and enthusiasm are duc the success of our teams.
We also owe much to the other swordmasters for their
patient work with us in our preliminary training. To
these, for the Academy, we wish to extend our thanks

Rifle shooting at the Naval Academy until the last two
or three years amounted to almost nothing. In the four years
since the beginning of our course, marksmanship has devel-
, , oped to such an extent that the Naval Academy has estab-
lished for itself, in a modest sort of way, quite a name for
James. both individual and team shooting. Although not spec-
tacular when compared with football and other forms of
athletics, rifle shooting, for the competitor, is nevertheless
one of the most fascinating of all sports, and at the Naval Academy, where the ultimate
object of all the training is to enable us at the crucial moment to make the greatest number
of hits in the shortest possible time, expert marksmanship justly receives enthusiastic
support from everybody. The midshipmen who make good on the team of course
deserve the greatest possible credit, but those who try and fail also merit praise, for it is
the competition-the long, hard struggle, together with good coaching and steady nerves-
that develops the successful rifle team. A man can never be sure he is not a good shot until
he has given himself a try out, and every man in the Academy should do his share toward
maintaining our present prestige.
Spring practice began with the call for candidates in February, and the squad received
its preliminary work in the pistol gallery under the supervision of the coach, Lieutenant
Laning, and the team captain, Gearing, 'o7. As soon as the Weather conditions permitted
it, work began at
the range, Where

so that by the time
our team met the

able to defeat
them by a deci-
than a hundred
points higher than .
that of the pre-
vious year. Then a week
later came the shoot with the
National Guard of the Dis-
trict of Columbia, which we
won easily, showing decided
improvement in form over
that displayed in the first
match. The following Satur-
day the team competed for
the Wells Trophy against the
crack team of the oflicers of
the 71st Regiment, N. G., of
New York. In 1906 the match
went to the 7ISt, but in 1907
we won by a comfortable margin, thus bringing another trophy, a bronze David, to adorn
the portals of the Armory. This ended the spring season, in complete victory for the
Naval Academy. The midshipmen composing the team are:
ALLEN, '07 STARK, '08 KNERR, '08 EARLE, '08
THOMSON, '07 HEIBERG, '08 DENNEY, '08 MAILLEY, '09
VOSSLER, '07 WILSON, E. E., '08 LEE, W. A., '08 BRADLEY, '10
In view of the fact that
we were victorious in all the
spring matches, the Navy De-
partment issued orders for
the team to participate in the
National Matches at Camp
During the middle of
july, nineteen midshipmen
were ordered from the
Cruising Squadron back to
the Naval Academy to report
to Lieutenant Fairfield for LL,
duty in connection with the
formation of a new team. Three weeks of continuous practice in the broiling sun, with the
thermometer on the firing line ranging from QSO to 1150, was hard on every man in the
squad, and all were glad when the time came to leave for Camp Perry and cooler
weather. Practice at Annapolis was completed on August ed, and accompanied by the
coach, Lieutenant Fairfield, and the captain, Jules James, 'o8, the squad embarked in a
special car and arrived in camp late Sunday afternoon. '
Considering our inexperience at long ranges, we by no means expected to win, but we
hoped to take a place in the first ten, which was rather ambitious when the fact is taken
into consideration that forty-eight teams were entered and that this was our first attempt.
Owing to frequent rains we did not accomplish much the first week, but Lieutenant Fair-
field made the best of poor conditions and soon had the team working smoothly. The long
ranges and the skirmish run were given the most attention, so that by the time the minor
matches approached, the midshipmen had those ranges well in hand. As the team was
ordered to Camp Perry to participate in the National Match, no special effort was made to
take part in these minor matches, and no picked teams were entered.
It was also deemed inadvisable to show the strength of the Naval Academy too soon,
or to put its members under a long-continued strain with the big match so near. The
wisdom of this course was demonstrated beyond a doubt by subsequent events, for in the
National Match many good teams " blew up" and dropped out of the race on account of the
prolonged strain to which
they had been subjected.

The National Matches, inaugurated by Congress, consist of thc National Team Match,
the National Individual Match, and the National Pistol Match: of these the Team Match is
the big event. The ranges consist of a skirmish run from 600 to 200 yards, rapid tire at
200 yards, slow fire at zoo, 600, 800 and 1,000 yards. From the very outset the contest
was the closest ever seen in a
National Match, and when
the skirmish runs were over
We stood in tenth place. By
steady, consistent team work
we climbed higher, and soon
took lead over the U. S.
Infantry, New York, the
Marine Corps, and Pennsyl-
vania. and finally, when the
smoke from the last shot had
cleared away, we found we had
won sixth place, thus putting p
us in the money, with a larger
score than that made by the winning team of 1906.
Not only in team competition did the Naval Academy
show up well against more experienced men, but W.
A. Lee, '08, sprung a surprise by winning first place in
the Individual Match, first in the National Pistol
Match, and second for the Military Championship
honors. The title of Military Champion, won by H.
T. Smith, yOQ, is awarded to the competitor making
the highest aggregate score in both the President's
and the National Individual Matches.
While at Camp Perry, the Academy team obtained
a very pleasant relief from the everyday routine in the
form of several week-end outings, perhaps the most
pleasurable of which were two ho
use-parties given by
Colonel Webb Hayes
and Lieutenant and
Mrs. H. E. Smith,
of Fremont, Ohio.

- from nothing to a point where it is capable of competing with
x-,F l teams of other colleges
e with an even chance of
' 1 . .
Ca ram Sckonzz' success. Little interest
has been shown in gym-
nastics at the Academy,
so that the team has been dependent largely on its
own ambitions, and those midshipmcn who are doing
the Work are truly out for the sport alone.
Prior to 1907 the Academy never had gym-
nastic tournaments with outside teams, so that when
the dual contest with the University of Pennsylvania,
scheduled for March 9, 1907, was announced to the
team only two weeks before the day set, there was
more or less nervousness among the individual mem-
bers, who had never before been in a real contest.
The showing made in this meet was good, although
not a victory. '
The one thing that gave the greatest impetus to
the practice of gymnastics was the
recognition the team received from the
Athletic Association in 19o6. At that
time the annual gymnastic exhibition
Was' changed to an annual contest,
the winner of which was to receive
the gold championship medal. Five
events, namely, horizontal bar, par-
allel bars, flying rings, side horse, and
tumbling, were established, and any
midshipman may enter one or all
events. The first place in each event
counts five points in the yearly com-
petition for the Hag. The contestant
making the highest total score is given the gold medal for general excellence in gym-
nastics, and in addition, the winners of all first place are entitled to wear the blue or white N. A.
For really high-class work, there is probably no other form of athletic exercise that
requires a longer period of earnest, hard, conscientious practice. Those who go out with
the intention of crowning their efforts with success must not only practice incessantly, but
must always keep in perfect physical condition. If they do not pay particular attention to
this point, they will be subject to many little injuries that will retard their development.
This class of work at the Academy this year has been better than ever beforeg there
have been more candidates for the team and there has been more faithful practice. With
the good instruction at hand, and a new gymnasium that is equipped with the best of modern
apparatus, there is no reason why the team should not develop into one of the very best

With the rapidly increasing interest in all branches of
athletics came the demand for a fast game that would fill up the
' winter months between the football and baseball seasons, and
'grim Vand me judging from the popularity basketball has achieved during the
I P 2 99 past year, it is the game that meets all requirements. Of late
V years basketball has rapidly developed in all the colleges, but
though it had its beginning here in the winter of IQO6-7, owing
to lack of support the only results were one exhibition game and the election of A. H.
Vanderhoof as captain and Archer M. R. Allen as manager for the season of IQO7-8. This
year the schedule was limited to four games, of which two were won and two lost, but the
interest aroused has now placed the sport on a secure footing. Much of the credit for this
successful outcome is due to the persistent and earnest efforts of Mr. Joseph Finneran, so
well known as the coach for the track team.
The first game was with the Corcoran Cadets, of Washington, D. C., on December I4th.
Much to the surprise of everyone, the visitors were completely outclassed, the rapid develop-
ment of the Academy team being well shown by the score of 58-I2. The team lined up as
follows: Forwards, Ducey and Vanderhoof, '08, Center, Bunkley, 'ogg Guards, Wilson, '11,
and Wills, '1o. During the game Hill, ,II, was substituted for Ducey, and Green, 'o9, for
Bunkley. Vanderhoof, Wilson and Ducey showed up especially well, and the latter made
a good start on his high record for the season of 44 points scored on field goals alone.
The game with Pennsylvania, on December 28th, resulted in a loss for the Academy by
the score of 37 to 16, but the team gained a great deal of experience and knowledge of the
collegiate game, as this quint had stood third in the intercollegiate series of the previous
year. The Navy men played a hard, fast game, but the veterans on the other side were
too much for them. The work of Keinath, Penn's all-American fforward, was the particular
feature of the game.
On the 11th of January, the team met and defeated George Washington University by
the SCOTC Of 48-8. This game saw the first change in the line-up, Vanderhoof and Wilson
changing places. The latter was such a sure shot for the basket that it was thought best
to place him where he could use his ability to the best advantage.
The final game with Columbia, on the 18th, was clean, straight, basketball all the way
through, and held the undivided attention of a large crowd from start to finish. Quick
work on both sides and difficult shots for goals marked the game throughout. Wills' good
work at guard was commendable, while Vanderhoof's deliberate goal while Hat on his back
on the fifteen-foot line was the most spectacular feature. For Columbia, the work of Ryan
and- Melitzer, bOth 1907 all-American players, was a revelation to those who had never
fully appreciated the possibilities of the game.
As it was impossible to schedule a game with the Army this season, it cannot be con-
sidered a complete successg but from the standpoint of the game itself, the outcome was very
gratifying to those who had the interest of the game at heart, for it proved conclusively
that a team turned out here compares favorably with that of any of the larger colleges, and
that the game itself has the necessary qualifications to increase its popularity in years to

was going to get. 'l' 'l' It's a sad, sad world, but the end of the month found him with only a bare 2.3!
On the Olympia 's seamanship exam this was part of a question:
"At sea, in a fog, you hear from dead ahead two blasts on a fog-horn. What would you see, should
the fog lift suddenly?"
When Walter Smith saw this, he cried, in disgust: "Why, that 's simple: anybody can tell that's
a steamer on the port tack !"
One beautiful, dreamy evening of our stay in Funchal, when naught but peace and quiet were
abroad, and the majestic old mountain with the sleeping town nestling against his breast was dimly
visible in the shimmering radiance of a tropical night, we left the " Denver " for a quiet row, that we
might listen to the music from the "Minnie" and enjoy the seductive charm of the night.
There was but a breath of air, just enough to break up the reiiection of a great, round moon, sending
it over the water to us in an entrancing ladder of light. Thus Strother:
"Oh, look, fellows! Isn't that reflection great? And we can see it so well from this spot, where
we are right in its pathway," then wondered why we laughed.

Gone are dear old Skinny steps,
And gone the lib'ry arehg
Killed by progression's march.
Now, if a fellow wants to go
And sit with some fair maid,
There's not a single seat
That's even in the shade,
And let alone a cozy place
Where no one would intrude,
And spoil his little fussing match
Witli imposition rude.
Oh, no! the Navy, modernized,
Destroys tradition old,
And thinks no more of dear romance
Than of the rovers bold.
And so good bye to all the spots
So dear to every heart,
Like wooden ships, their day is done,
And sadly must depart,
For in their place new buildings stand,
A11 stiff and new and white,
With not a single quiet nook
That's not out in plain sight.
Yes, gone is every dear old nook-A

to those who occupy a position between 0 X

in an otherwise somewhat arid waste. X if
As plebes who did not rate even looking on from Q
the gallery, we strolled through the yard or sat up in the s xii'
dark after-taps listening to strains of "Anona" and " Hia- Q
watha"-melodies that seemed to lift us from our prison
walls and transport us back to the good times we knew 'J
before our lot was cast with that of the Navy. At early 5 35
graduation in February came the first taste of the pleasures EIN
the Armory afforded--a tantalizing taste that made us count " " 9
the days till June, when, in all the glory of newly acquired
youngsterhood, we drank deep from the cup of happiness.
Back from leave, we started going to hops with characteristic youngster enthusiasm.
Perhaps they led to affairs of heart-perhaps they didn't--but whatever their result they
seem now a sort of continuous performance that commenced Saturday morning with release
from drill. There was the usual rush to shift into uniform, a run for the train that was
always late, a strenuous afternoon fussing at the football game, fencing tournament or base-
ball game, and a run back to supper formation, followed by a still-hunt for hop cards the
committee never had. After supper came a happy evening of dancing to "Dearie," the
"Spooning Song" and their contemporaries-an evening that ended all too soon when we
tumbled into the office out of breath and signed up at 11.59. Sunday at chapel we met
our friends again, showed them the wonders of quarters, fussed until the train left, and then
came back to spud salad and the indescribable loneliness of Sunday evening study hour.
The time passed merrily on until as second classmen we brought up sharp against Wool-
sey's "Mechanics" and johnny Gow with a jolt that confined many of us to our rooms
and reduced the world's supply of candles. But when, the exams over, we were safely
beyond the divide, June week with its proms and Farewell Ball seemed, by contrast, to
have grown even more attractive.
First class year, out of the wilderness, we counted the days until graduation. It was
then that the fortnightly hops shortened the autumn, the Christmas informals, the holidays,
and the spring hops the last few months of our stay. Those gone, the hops are but memories
-memories that we will take to sea with us as comrades in the long mid-watches, when
the lapping of the water against the side will be the only sound and companion. Perhaps,
then, little snatches from "Red Mill" or the "Merry VVidow" will tinkle in our ears, and
there will come a picture of happy, smiling faces and pretty girls whirling in a maze of blue
and gold and dainty colors. In the dizzy whirl of beauty will be the faces of friends good
and true-faces that will bring heart-aches, perhaps, but faces we might otherwise never

N N x outlook was bright and cheery: the loud shirts, demonstrative socks, and
k - I X enthusiastic nether garments displayed in the windows opposite gave
I if a gay and festive appearance to the scene. Even the brick walls, the
stone foundation, and the cement walks radiated good fellowship and

all the inmates thereof, his face beamed with thee joy of living, his brain
was filled with thoughts of well-doing.
" Patsy" entered the room and shared " Gloomy's" seat upon the radiator. He applied
the salve with his usual success, and when satisfied, turned to " Gloomy" and asked:
"Dragging Saturday night, Gloomy?"
" Had thought about it, old man, but I got a letter from her sister this morning saying
that she was going with Bob Munroef'
"Good! I want you to take a girl for me. She sure is a queen, otherwise I wouldn't
ask it. You will be crazy about her. Light hair and blue eyes-of the twinkling sort-
and talk! Why, man alive, you won't have a chance. Everything she says is in a per-
sonal strain. You will spend your time principally in gazing into her eyes, but partly in
patting yourself on the back, in displaying idiotic grins, and in trying to gasp elusive
nothings. Now she has heard of you and of your woman-hater attitude, Gloomy, and she
advocates reform. This is a great chance: will you take her to the hop?"
How old is she?" . .
"Can't be touched."
" Is everything--er-a-a-natural ?"
"She is just as I described her."
"Well, drop your carcass in that chair and prepare yourself! Remember the last

hboth of them, however, being of a playful disposition. Her nose and chin met in a
parabolic curve, and she whistled in her speech while talking about pa and ma and me. I
am not much on your society stunts, but it was up to me to give her a good time. I did the
best I could and received no help from anyone-you for instance. Never worked harder in
my life, nor lied more, and I finally persuaded her that everyone was crazy to dance with
her, but that they sidestepped in my favor. We had all the dances together, and when it
came to dancing she was all there. She entered into the thing with a zest and a deter-
mination-to learn. She stammered with her tongue and stuttered with her feet. The
end of her train was weighted, and in taking the curves the thing circulated: we had a spill
everytime we came about, but in spite of all our bruises we were soon well acquainted, after
the third dance I was 'Pet.' My fussing next day was successful in the extreme.

She is just a little different
From the other girls we meet-
She is just a little different
From the rest:
She is just a little trimmer
And a little more petite,
And perhaps she's
just a little better dress't.
Then after drill she always walks
With someone in the Lane,
And at the evening concert,
Still one more 5

To number by the score.

And the very factshe's watching
Will give all of you a thrill,
And send the little shivers

And there's still another reason
Why we like to see her here,
Why we like to see
For her coming is a signal
That we've ended up the year
And that we've reached
Our Graduation Day.

OR the last few years there have been half-hearted attempts
to revive the old custom of giving shows-and there have
been good men, too, good actor men-but not until the
beginning of this year did the real theatrical germ take hold
in earnest and the David Belascos and Richard Mansfields
break forth. It was then that the three immortals who
later became the directors of the Glee Club, the Instru-
mental Club and of Staging, put their heads together and
concocted an attractive scheme of organization to set
before the Commandant. This he approved. Several
nights later a meeting was held to get people interested,
and the following night the oilicers were elected. Boughie
issued a call for musicians, and no one ever dreamed that
the place held so many noise-makers. ' Something like sixty people broke out with violins,
trombones, French horns, cornets, kettle-
- vlxxx drums and all the other paraphernalia known
ff' ,, to modern music, and before long there was
ii such a din in Recreation Hall that the officer-
' in-charge didn't even dare put his head in to
'AQ rag the orchestra for being out of uniform!
W1 In the dead of the night others crept up to
' ri, Patsy Donavin's room and actually confessed
that they thought they could act. Encour-
' aged by what they had seen and heard in
-Zliatnwa 6 , the choir, still more went down to Pierie's
.- 1 U, room with the startling information that
' i' W they could sing.
All of this looked mighty good for a brand-new
organization, and in the course of events the following D 0
appeared on the front page of the Evening Capital:
"The Masqueraders, a dramatic and musical organi-
zation of midshipmen at the Naval Academy, will
give their first performance or try out, as they are
pleased to call it, next Saturday night in the Audi-
torium." Now it was originally intended to make
this " try out" a secret session, but everybody insisted
that outsiders be admitted. What happened that
evening had best be left unwritten, it was an
"Amateur Night" in the true sense, with most
W ' "

dire results for "The Masqueradersf' Patsy got the hook,
Swede Peterson put everybody to sleep, and Nellie Foy was
almost lynchecl the next clay for saying the show l'wasn't so
bad." But there were some good things about it, notably
Piersolls songs, the music and one or two black-face stunts.
Another good thing was that it broke the Dutch comedians
"Dad" and "Dubs" of the actor habit.
The next entertainment planned and carried out was
the Christmas show. Even the fussers gave up the in-
formals to learn their parts. Mr. Paul Armstrong kindly
J allowed the use of one of his charming little plays, "My
f if Wife's Husband." The manager of the Colonial Theatre lent
the necessary scenery and the Naval Academy orchestra
furnished the music. To all of these "The Masqueradersn
feel themselves greatly indebted. The show consisted of
two parts-a minstrel skit, "Our Garden Party," and the
play, the first managed by Donavin, and the second by
Piersol. There's no getting around it: both were well staged
and were thoroughly enjoyed by a packed house. Bishop Boyd
acted as "Host," a role which perfectly suited "His Rever- 'ij tfli
ence," Maggie Magruder, Bastedo, Dresel, McCammon and
Field all made hits as end men, and the olio was exceptionally Q ' ww- 4
good-looking. Everyone had a chance to say what he thought
about everybody else, and among others the Nav. department K
came in for its share of hits. imlllw
The play, however, was somewhat out of the ordinary. 'Tia
Piersol took the leading part, that of an old "grouch," and did
it well. Buster Borland made an ideal Oxford student and W.
N. Porter a very good wayward son. Things ran along very B 'Q M
smoothly until jules james appeared as " Mrs. Smithsonf' You
must have seen him and heard him laugh to appreciate thor-
oughly the kind of a hit he made. Those who were fortunate 1 '
enough to hear that funny little feminine laugh which "she" got off
so many times will never forget it. The beautiful contralto voice and the aforesaid laugh
were about to deceive people into thinking that Jules was a "sure enoughngirl, when
to everybody's astonishment "she" came down with a most masculine "sir!" Then it
was all off.
During the spring, one or two concerts were given which
were well roasted by the Naval Academy Knocker in some very
,gms V remarkable articles, These affairs, however, served to keep up
, the interest and to develop material for the last show of the
f year, which was held on May 15th. At the present writing
--Q-ir little has been done in the way of rehearsals, but extensive
A A plans have been made, and so far as it is possible to say we
- xv predict a very good success for the show. The play is a musical
g ff -ya, comedy entitled "The Revolutionistsf' and the scene is laid in
XA T i f ' one of the South American Republics, where a complete over-
throw of the government is a matter of months of talk, secret
meetings, and mysterious plans, but little aetion exeept to jump up and down and yell
"Fire"l vigorously three or four times. It is a case of mistaken identity, with a divinity
student in the wrong place at the right time. There will be some good singing and clever
dancing, and the hope has been expressed that the substitution of masculine Tillies in the
chorus will not altogether destroy the interest of those who ordinarily establish themselves
in the baldheaded pew. It is, of course, one of the lamentable conditions which circum-
stanceshave imposed upon us that the high parts in the music have to be cut outifto a
very great extent, but even at that we are confident that, with the aid of appropriate
costumes, the chorus will make a big hit. There will be -about fifteen principal characters
and a chorus of twenty-five. It is the intention f
to engage a professional to give instruction in W My
dancing and to assist with the stage directions. ,
The book for the play was Written by Jukes and IFI, ,,,. 1 f' ""' "'s A W . . ,
W. N. Porterg the music, which, by the way, is I, .-.991 4
entirely original, is by Donavin, Piersol, and l' N ,,,.. . 21
Townsend, While the orchestration has been at- I f-'
tended to by LeBourgeois. If hard work brings 1 F'
success, these at least have assured the play the '
best sort of a reception. ilu, Q. ,Bag .M V
An outfit of scenery has been provided for the 43 'E'
Auditorium stage, LeBourgeois has purchased a
bass drum, and it is hoped that the succeeding classes will take up the organization where
we leave off. In making it thrive they will serve in some small measure to break the
monotony of Academy life, and we hope that in after years we may be able to look
back with pride upon this departure from the ordinary.
X W 4
M Q P HE choir is one part of this institution whose affairs have long remained
5 shrouded in mysteryg it has never before received due recognition, and
ff ' QX XV this short article will achieve its purpose if it serves to attract to our song-
Q' 1' birds some small share of the public attention.
Actuated by an ambition to become members of that august body,
, whole multitudes of applicants step out into the glare of publicity when,
on the first of October. the call for the try out goes forth. At this very
important function strange sights and sounds greet one. One sees the patient first
classman, who for years has been trying to find some way to beat the government out of
one drill a Week, go through the ordeal with flying colors, while a plebe, out for the
first time, after singing everything from "Ch, Mister Brown" to "The Holy City," fails
at last because he hasn't mastered the art of pumping the organ. In recent years, however,
so much wonderful "raw" material has been discoveredthat the leader has been forced to
enlarge the choir and to admit all comers-no, not quite all, either, for last fall he did turn
down the " Skeeter," although the latter sang " Upon a Little Island" in his usual good voice.
But in truth, so great has been the addition to the "ranks" of the choir that at last it has
demonstrated, beyond the shadow of a doubt, its right to bear in triumph on its crest that
very appropriate motto, "Pa1'vum 'in Malia."
Twice each week does the choir in glorious self-abnegation put aside the more pleasant
duties of the routine and devote itself to the public welfare. On Friday afternoons and on
Sunday morning, never once considering the joys of drill and inspection, it meets in solemn
conclave for the regular "weakly" practice. But there, instead of working on new " Glorias"
and "Te Deums," it either shows itself averse to radical ideas by deciding to keep the old
standbys at work, or in true humility deems itself unworthy to sing new sacred music until
the proper time during the morning service. For week days ordinary music is good enough,
so the entire practice is given over to rehearsing all the latest comic opera scores.
But we do not look upon the choir as a few strident pessimists dog it fills its place
admirably, and we feel that without its cheering presence and inspiring voice at the long
Sunday service we would almost rather not go to chapel at all, we are, moreover, disposed
to look unfavorably upon those who, with envy in their hearts, pronounce such epithets as
"grafters",and "deadwood." And so we beg you, kind reader, to grant it the right to
pursue its beloved avocation in peace-leave it undisturbed in the shadow of the pulpit,
where it may eat its coughdrops in perfect serenity, and Where quiet reigns supreme, save

ini, vi 5 years. The active membership is over one hundred and fifty out of
eight hundred, a proportion of about twenty per cent. Devotional
services are held on Sunday nights in Recreation Hall. Various
prominent speakers are invited here to address the meetings, and these men, with their
broad experience in life, have made these gatherings very popular and a great power for
good. Personal work is allowed for in group Bible Study classes, in which one hundred
and twenty-live midshipmen are enrolled. This group system allows a few men, under a
leader, to meet once a week and discuss the lessons of a complete course of study in an
Besides distinctively religious work, the Y. M. C. A. keeps up the reading room, where
twenty-four dailies and all the better class of magazines and periodicals may be found.
"Reef Points," a hand-book of the Academy, is issued each year. It contains many inter-
esting notes concerning the life here, and provides each midshipman with a time-form, a
place to keep his monthly averages, and printed programs for the hops, all of which make
the little book very valuable. The Cruise Library is another popular project maintained
by the Association. A large number of readable books are bought and each summer dis-
tributed among the ships of the Practice Squadron. These provide good reading matter
for the midshipmen when not engaged in work on board ship. And last, but not least, in
The Bulletin, a weekly publication begun this year and edited by the officers of the Associa-
tion, the Y. M. C. A. l1as endeavored to provide a newsy sheet for the brigade. This is the
first time anything of the kind has ever been tried at the Academy, and it is to be hoped that
The B14Zlel1'n will grow larger and better as it increases in age. The Association officers for
the current year are: Burdick, presidentg Haines, vice-president, Charlton and Smith,
H. T., secretaries, and Meade, treasurer. Those elected for the coming year are: Wriglit,
president, Friedel, vice-presidentg Meade and Peoples, secretaries, and Howell, treasurer.
Last summer a new and decidedly novel step was taken by the Naval Academy
Y. M. C. A. when it sent delegates to thc Northfield Convention. This convention, inter-
national in scope, was started some eight or ten years ago by Evangelist Moody, and has
in this short time grown to very great proportions-a fact that may be realized when it
is known that our delegates in descending from the train were greeted not only by the
well-known yells of most of the American colleges, but even by yells in Hindustani and
Japanese. The little town of Northfield was completely overrun with the enthusiastic
delegations, and the halls of the Northhcld Seminary were daily crowded to their utmost
capacity. The Academy contingent was fortunate enough to be housed with the West
Pointers, of whom there were a dozen or more, and many an exciting' time and hilarious
lark were the result.
The convention this year was held during the wee o Ju y
devoted to Bible Study andllectureswon various methods of scriptural instruction. The
k f l 1-6. The mornings were
afternoons were given over wholly to athletics, and there were several very exciting base-
ball games and track meets as well as an interesting tennis tournament. Every evening
there was an auditorium lecture by some eminent lecturer or divineg among others we had
the pleasure of listening to Dr. Spurgeon, of London, and John Mott, chairman of the
International Committee on Student VVork. The delegates from the Naval Academy
Association were Burdick, Boyd, and Charltong and such good results have been achieved
by means of the instruction received at Northfield that this year a larger number will be
sent, if possible.
The object of all the work of the Association may be summed up in a few Words-to
provide a close moral and spiritual life for the brigade, to add a little cheer to the routine
of everyday life, and, more than all, to make strong, clean men, in L' body, mind and spirit,"
for the Academy and for the Service.

HE FGDTB LL GAME
You can calculate a erew's chances with a fair degree of certainty, you
can figure out a track meet with more or less precision, you can count on
a baseball team's success as a general rule, but when it comes to doping
out the result of an Army-Navy football game, the experts and form players
are all at sea. From the comparison ofthe scason's scores it looked as if we would be
outclassed, but during the whole game, from the very first down, there was only one team
in it, and that the Navy. Although we went up to Philadelphia with a great deal of hope
and faith in our team and a steadfast determination to win, when we found that the odds
ranged all the way from 5 to 4 up to 3 to I against us, we just couldnit help feeling a
bit nervous. However, the stringent condition of the Wall Street money market didn't
prevent us from coppering a few bushels of Army money. Our confidence did not waver
for one instant, and although we expected a hard struggle, we knew we had a team that
would play the game, it wasn't a ease of what we thought we could do, but -a ease of what
we knew we had to do. As Mike Murphy said just before the team left the dressing room,
" Boys, just remember this: if a team won? be beaten, it 1711117 be beaten," and he had our
state of mind sized up exactly. We-and I say we, meaning not the team, but the team
and the brigade-were determined to win.
There never was a prettier day for a football gameg just enough cloud to keep the air
cool, and not enough wind to give either team the advantage. By noon the stands com-
menced to fill, and at two o'clock, the time set for the game, the usual merry Army-Navy
crowd thronged the great amphitheatre to overflowing. Everyone there was a partisan,
it seemed, for everyone carried colors, everywhere on the South Stand were pennants and
ribbons of the Army black and gold and gray,
and the North Stand was one mass of the good
old Navy blue and gold.
At about half-past one the West Pointers
marched in along the North Stand, each com-
pany, as it arrived opposite the center, changing
direction to the left and swinging across the
field in company front to close in mass directly
before the Army section. The brigade sprung
a new departure, and one that apparently
created a very favorable impression, when it
marched in at the east entrance in column of
squads and formed line of masses to the right
near the center of the Navy side. All hands
were barely seated, with just enough time to
exchange compliments with the Army and the
University of Pennsylvania, when the squads
came on the field-and that's where something

done, for our defense
had been made per-
After another un-
successful try at our
line, Beavers kicked,
and so began that mag-
nificent punting duel
that slowly and surely
carried the ball down
practice, but promptly at two ofcloek Captains Smith and Douglas met
in the center of the field to fiip the coin. Smith won the toss and chose
the kick-off, giving the Navy the east goal to defend.
There was a sudden hush over the field as Beavers poised the ball, but
as he kicked off, the Four N yell crashed out defiance to the Army and
encouragement to the Navy, and the game was on. The kick went over
the goal line and Douglas punted out, Beavers receiving the ball, but
Dague downed him in his tracks. Then, when the teams lined up, was the
first moment of real suspense-the first play would show us whether the
Army players, who had come down to obliterate
's territoi and close to
the Held, out of Navy - ' 'y
us from the map, would succeed or not. West
Point brought out her dreaded tandem buck
that had played such havoc with Cornell and
Yale. That was the one play we had not been
sure aboutg that had been the one formation
that had caused long nights of worry to the
coachers. The ball snapped back to Captain
Smith and the tandem struck our line with a
smash that it seemed nothing could stop, but
there, where they had
looked for men, the
Army players found a
stone wall, and in that
instant we knew the
game was ours. It
was not for nothing
that all the watching
and planning an d
thinking had been
West Points goal. The Army backs, hurried
and harrassed by the ubiquitous Daguc, were
unable to run the kicks back a foot, and
several fumbles by Mountford showed that
there was the weak point in the Army de-
fense. Lange showed splendid generalship
by varying the punts with runs by Douglas
from the regular kick formation. DE MQTT
It was one of these fake kick plays that
started the Navy's brilliant dash into the enemy's territory for a
touchdown. Douglas brought everyone in that vast crowd to his feet
by a splendid run of forty yards to the eight-yard line. The Army
saved herself for a moment by taking a forward pass and kicking out
of danger, but a moment later Mountford let Douglas' return get away
from him, and DeMott fell on the ball, then Lange carried it to the
ten-yard line on an end run, Douglas took it through tackle for three
yards, and Jones for four more. The Army braced for a mighty
effort-it was third down, with three yards to make. The bleache1'S

were bedlamg the West Pointers implored their battered warriors to
make a last standg the spectators on north and south sides alike were
frantically cheering and waving their colors-only in the midshipmen's
cheering section was there silence, where each man grasped his
neighbor's arm with hands of steel, and sent a silent message of
strength and encouragement to those brave fellows on the field such as
no team could fail to respond to. Douglas took the ball on a delayed
pass and smashed into the seething mass, through it, and over the line,
with five yards to spare.
After we had exhausted our repertoire of
yells, and there was once more comparative
quiet, Lange kicked the goal, and that started
the cheering all over again.
For the remainder of the half the Navy
team forced the fighting, and aided by fumbled
punts again and again threatened the Army's
goal, only to find that the defense tightened
up at just the right instant. The half
ended with the ball in Army's possession
on her forty-yard
chance to meet the
chap who was using
that mysterious third
ticket we had given
away. Some of the
old-timers came along
and congratulated us,
they wished to be
remembered to the
brigade, and told us
to keep up the good work.
But the greatest attention of all was paid
to the singing and cheering that always seems
as a sort of enifact to the play. The bands
were marched to their respective positions in
front of the cheering sections, and then the
songs that had been so carefully learned and
rehearsed all through the fall were sung, and
the yells between were hurled across the field
from one stand to the other almost as shells
from fort to ship.
The Army mule, which up to that time had, for a mule, shown 21
remarkable lack of interest in thc proceedings, then came across the
field in search of a little excitement. He got it. He wasn't IUUC11
excited when he came over-just filled with a mild sort of curiosity, as
it were-but when Bill Rawls and the goat got after him, he woke up.
The mild curiosity was replaced by interest, then by excitement, and
Between the halves
there were the usual
to the occasion. There
was agreat deal of
visiting, both from
across and around,
and we then had a
then by base fear. That mule didn't stay very much longer, as soon ? i
as he had satisfied himself that the goat meant business, he turned tail MAGRUDER
vw . ' V
and beat an ignominious retreat. Of course, that just tickledjthe goat
almost to death, and he felt that it was up to him to show off a bit,
so he and Bill went over to the Army side and introducedfthemselves
to the Corps. About this time the Army bear, a poor little thing that
looked as if it ought to be at home with its mamma, caught sight of
the goat and immediately proceeded to throw a fit. But pshaw! it
needn't have been afraid, because VVilliam Goat hadn't the slightest
intention in the world of hurting it. He was so good-natured that the
only thing he did to the Yellow 'Kid the Army sent over was to give
him a good scare, though, really, sending that
kid out almost hurt the goat's feelings. But
shortly after all the Army mascots had taken
refuge in flight, the teams came out again, and
then we forgot everything in thinking of the
more serious business of the day.
In the second half the Navy played on the
defensive most of the time, but it was a de-
fensive game that was entirely new to most of
the spectatorsg the ball was almost constantly
in West Point's terri-
held goal were un-
successful, and two
forward passes to
Dague and DeMott
failed on account of
the clever defensive
work of the Army

in the first half, and

The Army made one desperate but fruit-
less raid into Navy territory. An onside kick
for about fifteen yards and a long forward
pass for twenty-five more were responsible
for this, and West Point reached our twenty- REINICKE

ever got, for our line was again a mighty wall of p1'OtCClli01'1, 8115 fi
try at field goal by Beavers went wide. Douglas punted out, and
thereafter the fight was wholly at the other end of the field.
In the last few minutes of play several substitutions were made.
Owing to the new rule that only those who played in the West Point
game should receive the N, the captain and coaches wished to give a
chance to substitutes who, at the last moment, had lost out on the
team, Reinicke took Meyer's place, jones gave way to Boynt0U,
Magruder replaced Leighton, and Dague came out so Strother could
point two trials at
play. All these players did noble work, and richly
deserved the big yellow N and star that came when
the game was over.
The second half ended with the ball in Army's
hands on her thirty-yard line, and with it ended the
best, gamest, and most scientific battle of all the
Army-Navy series. The midshipmen could not con-
tain themselves for joy, scarcely delaying to give
the necessary complimentary yells, they rushed on
the field in wild disorder, and falling in behind the
band, and led by Patsy Donavin and Duke Rawls
with his goat, danced the serpentine from one end
of the field, to the other. We made a stop in front
of the West Pointer's section and exchanged cheer
after cheer with our soldier rivals, who accepted
their defeat in true fashion, with as good grace and
spirit as if they had won. Then the celebration that
followed-the serpentine, rushing the colors, and a
wild waltz over the whole field l-it warms the heart
to remember. And we hope that those who come
after us-those who as yet, perhaps, have never seen the glorious struggles of the blue
and the gray on Franklin Field-may often know inspiring moments like that, when the
STROTH ER WRIGHT
conventions of ordinary action and the decorum of everyday routine are forgotten in
one great burst of wild enthusiasm and mad joy over thc result of a clean, sportsman-
like light of hand to hand, man to Hman, and team to team.

NE ray of consolation is afforded by the result of the last West Point
W iw 'Ili baseball game-the hoodoo is a thing of the past. The history of the
6- baseball games between the Army and the Navy shows the visiting
" ' ' team always to have been victorious, but now the spell is broken, and,
if f sad to say, it was broken over the Navy goat's back. Never again shall
i -5. we experience that old, disquieting feeling when the Army sends a team
to Annapolis, and when hereafter the Navy comes in victory down the
Hudson, we shall know that good playing, and not mere luck, has won the game.
All morning the clouds hung low over the plains, many an uneasy glance went heaven-
ward, and many an anxious word betrayed a fear that weather conditions would cause the
postponement of the game, which would mean no game at all. In fact, a few tentative
drops did fall, but just as the team trotted out on the field, the clouds rolled away, and before
the time for the game arrived the sun shone forth with all the splendor of May.
Every train brought crowds of visitors, all with flags, ribbons, and megaphones-you
never saw so much black and gold and gray in your life. For awhile it looked as if all our
friends had forgotten us, but when we came over from the batting cages, cheers of welcome
and encouragement greeted us. From the bleachers back of our bench we heard "Stand
Navy Down the Field," and we knew that there were staunch hearts near us to share in
our triumph or defeat. i
" Play ball" at last, and the Army took the field. Battle came first to bat, and after a
very short wait succeeded in getting in the way of one of Beavers' easy ones. That made
a good beginning, and Bacon, to help matters along, sacrificed by bunting down the first-
base line. Beavers tagged him, but Gene went down to second. Lange came up with a
determined air, and knocked what looked like a two-bagger into deep right, but Hanson,
after a beautiful run, managed to pull it down. Stiles tapped an easy one down to first
base, which so surprised johnson that he left Harry make the base, while Battle skinned
down to third. Then Daguc was up, but before he had a chance to show what he could do,
Mountford dropped the ball and Battle came home. Cracky ended the inning with a hot
one to short, who threw him out at first.
Then it was the Army's turn. Things began to happen right away, before Captain
Van Auken had time to unlimber. Groninger came up and laced out a pretty hit over the
shortstop's head. He was in a great hurry, and stole second on the first ball pitched.
Captain Pritchett brought up a big bat about a foot in diameter, but all he could do was to
knock a pop fly that Hambsch gathered in. After two strikes Wagner, the next man, got
one of those things, scored Groninger, and then went to second on the throw home. Beavers
made a mistake and caught one of Van's speedy ones on the arm and walked to first. Then
Hanson, after waiting for the right one, laid back on his haunches and drove the ball out
into center field. Battle made a beautiful throw to catch the runner at home, but Hambsch
forgot himself, and by the time he picked the ball out of the bleachers, Wagner and Beavers
had crossed the plate, and Hanson was on third. Here Van Auken showed a great deal of
courageous self-sacrifice and retired from the game, putting Lanphier in his place. It
surely was Al's day, because Mountford, after hitting a big chunk of nothing three times
in the same place, was thrown out at first 5 and johnson's effort was nipped in the bud,
pitcher assisting. y
First inning, score: Army 3, Navy 1.
But little Gillam showed that he was there with the big stick by getting a hit off of the
first ball pitched. Strickland tried to sacrifice, but it was no use, Beavers threw the ball
about ten feet over the first baseman's head, and Gillie went to third. Hambsch poked out
a long foul into the right fielder's basket, but Gillam beat theiball home, and while the Army
players were amusing themselves by tossing the ball around the lot, Strickland got to third
base. Lanphier was the next man up, and almost immediately a swift inshoot mashed his
pitching hand. It looked for awhile as if he would be unable to play any more, which put
the Navy bench and bleachers into a deep blue gloom, but he knew it was up to him, so he
stayed on the bench and let Scotty nurse his hand while Jinny Clark ran his bases. jinny
stole, but Strickland was nabbed coming home on the throw to second. Battle went out
on a hot drive to Wagner.
Nothing doing in the Army's half. Meredith and Groninger made hits, and the latter
stole a bag before all the stiffness got out of Lanphier's finger, but Bonesteel knocked an
easy grounder to Gillam, who threw him out at first, Meredith got ragged on the way to
third, and Pritchett found he couldn't lay down a bunt safely with two outs, so the inning
was over, with the score three to two on West Point.
The third was a fast one all around. Brainy Bacon knocked a speedy one to Pritchett,
who snapped it over to first in plenty of time. Lange ditto, except that it was Wagner who
got on the outboard side of the' ball, and Harry Stiles lobbed an easy one to Beavers, who
caught him half way. Then Navy scattered around the Held to see Al have some fun with
the eneniy's batters. Wagner went out, Bacon assistingg Beavers got a pass, but it didn't
do him any good, because he certainly walked into a trap when he thought second looked
easy. Hanson surprised himself by getting to first while Gillam did a little juggling act,
but he went down on an assist by Bacon to Gillam of Mountford's grounder.
In the fourth we forged ahead. Daguc led off with a single, and for awhile it looked
as if hc'd stay at first, because Gillam fanned and Strickland knocked a high foul to catcher.
Hambsch, however, came to the rescue with a pretty little bingle, and Cracky went to third.
Lanphier hadn't made a hit all season, but now he rose nobly to the occasion and scored
Cracky by driving the ball over short, then Beavers got a pair of wings and walked Battle
and Bacon, thus forcing in Hambsch. Lange had a good chance to cinch things, but he
West Point made the same number of runs this inning as she had the third. Stiles
put out Johnson all by himself, Al gave an assist to help Bonesteel to the bench, and then,
to end matters, ran over and tagged Meredith when he tried an easy one down toward first
' That was the last of the scoring for awhile, but there was some very good ball played,
both teams making outs in snappy style, and hitting the ball occasionally to keep up the
interest. In the seventh, however, Navy apparently clinched the game by getting Stiles
to run around the bags while the Army outfielders were looking for the ball. Then after
Cracky had knocked a long one to right that Hanson pulled down, Gillie got a two-bagger
and Strickland advanced him to third with a pretty single. But there the Navy lost all
further chance to score when Hambsch and Lanphier struck out. The Army duplicated
her performance of the previous five innings in one, two, three order.
Though we tried mighty hard to get another man around in the next chapter, we found
we could not do it. Battle made a hit and Bacon sacrificed, but Lange and Stiles quickly
went out. West Point sent three men to the bat in this inning.
Things looked safe, considering the respective playing of the two teams, when the Navy
took the field in the last of the ninth. After the first inning there had been but one side
to the game. The battery of Army rooters had been reduced first to spasmodic efforts
and then almost complete silence. But an Army-Navy game is never over till the last
man is out, as we found that day, when we sustained one of the hardest defeats in the whole
series played. It began with Mountford, the first man up. He knocked a slow one to
Bacon, who made his first error in weeks, allowing the Army man to reach first. Then
Lanphier, after a hot one to him by Johnson, got anxious and slammed the ball to second
in an attempt to get Mountford, but the throw went wide. Mountford stole third on
Hambseh's dropped ball. Bonesteel retired on a little pop up to catcher, and after Johnson
stole second, Al caught him ten feet off the base. Meredith came up and sent a liner into
left Held, scoring Mountford. Groninger, who had been hitting well all through the game,
put a single over second base that advanced Meredith to third, and while Pritchett was
warming up with a couple of strikes, he stole second. Then something happenedg Pritchett
drove a hit toward Lange, who threw home, but Hambsch let it go through and Meredith
scored. Lanphier got the ball out of the crowd, but Groninger reached the plate a foot
ahead of A1's arm, and the game was over, with Army 6. Navy 5.

HE Class of 1908 had its birth during the early part of June,
1904, when the majority of us took up the life and burdens
of Naval " Ka-dots." Some of us were sworn in as early as
the first of May, a large number during june and July,
and a few even in August and September, until our total
was close around the three hundred mark. We were quar-
tered in old Main Quarters and Annex "A," those ancient
buildings which were the scenes of such memorable "soirees 5"
in fact, the very atmosphere breathed of the customs of the
old Naval Academy, and we were not long in absorbing
the spirit and tradition of our surroundings.

Z A of our chairs, looking neither to right nor leftg we had our
K 4 Sari "soirees" and went through all kinds of stunts, to the howl-
'- ing delight of the upper classmen: this in truth was the "Old
' ' Navy," which was so soon to be succeeded by an entirely
different system. We say "good old days," and they surely
were good old days, despite the customs of plebedom.
We embarked on june 5th for our first cruise, full of anticipation for the future,
satisfied with the fact that at least one year had passed and all was well. The war
maneuvers took up a week's time, after which came in succession the good times at
Norfolk and Old Point, the scasick cruise up to Gardiner's Bay, and New London and
Rockland, with the hops and good feeds at the Pequot, Manhansett, Prospect House, and
the Samoset. At the very end of the cruise the Severn was caught in a "nor'easter"
and driven out to sea, where untold mental and physical agonies were experienced by
the unfortunates aboard as the ship hcaved and rolled day after day, with leave almost
at hand. And that leave! A month of it was fine, but six weeks' leave was still better,
for they were six weeks of absolute freedom after fifteen months' restraint.
But even that passed quickly, and we found ourselves back on October 14th, ready
to begin the second lapg but we then had the consolation of giving it to the plebes, in

sweet recompense for our own experience. This state of
affairs was not destined to last long, for hazing came to the
notice of the authorities, and Congress decreed that the day
of hazing had passed. Yet with all this internal shaking
up, there was a glorious football season which ended in our
tieing West Point at Princeton, on the first of December,
and that game changed the fortunes of football between
our brother Joe and ourselves. After our return to Crab-
town, all settled down to the work of preparing for youngster
semi-ansg when these had come and gone, our class roster
was sadly depleted, and among the number of those who
left us were some of our very best friends.
In the spring we looked forward to a rumored foreign
cruise, and just at the end of the year, when we learned that
we were going abroad, the hazing restrictions were handed out in large and small packages,
then did we swear vengeance on all plebcs henceforth, for many of us were confined for
months to the academic limits and to the practice ships because we had upheld a system
which we honestly believed was for the best interests of the Academy and the Service.
Our youngster year saw the death of the old Naval Academy life and the birth of the
new. During the year the very traditions upon which Academy customs had been built
were shattered. Of the old life, little now remains to serve as landmarks.
But June Week, with its gayety and freedom from restrictions, followed by the trip
abroad, put good spirits into everyone. Of the trip across, let nothing be said lest we awaken
unpleasant memories of rolling ships, heavy seas, wave-swept decks and of future admirals

the ships in the harbor, all of which were full

number of us were buzzards, and of course we worked our pipes

in our wearing our beloved class rings, and we started on first class
cruise with the feeling that for the first time we were really Hit."
Of that cruise it need only be
said that it was the most pleasant
experience of our Naval Academy t
career. Jamestown, Norfolk, New A'
York, Poughkeepsie, New London,
Bath and Wasliiiigtoii were all on
the itinerary, and everyone thor-
oughly enjoyed the yachting trip. First class leave was
unquestionably the best of all, and when we returned
it was with a decided blue feeling, some awful heads
and loud calls for "ishe wa'cr."
But the return to routine was not so bad after all, for
we had the gratifying sensation of knowing that it was the last lap of the endurance race.
Now, as we look forward to that day in june and see that long-looked for "dip" in the
distant haze, we sing "One More River " with mingled feelings of gladness and sorrow, for
in June our ways diverge, we depart from those who are dear to us, and not until then will
be realized what close friends and brothers we have been, sharing each other's sorrows and
joys and fighting our way to the victory with our hearts bound by the ties that bind.

The distinctive feature of the first part of the cruise was the subordination of all other
considerations to the desire to make a creditable showing at the Jamestown Exposition.
For weeks prior to embarkation, those of us who were designated officially as the "Pro-
visional Battalion," facetiously as the "Teddy Bears," and more appropriately as the
" Goats" had been drilling hard and conscientiously. Under the four-company plan, most
of the Hrst classmen were omitted from the detail, but in the midst of their self-congratu-
lation fate overtook them. They were all put in ranks, and found themselves facing the
prospect of a first class cruise with something to do.
The Sunday after embarkation we dropped anchor in Hampton Roads to find ourselves
participants in what was heralded on the bill-boards as " the most noble naval pageant of
recent years." The next morning at colors we dressed ship, manned the rail, piped saluting
guns' crews to quarters, and fired a national salute as the President, on the bridge of the
"Mayfiower," passed in review of the fiect. Then followed our part in the program. We
disembarked, and after waiting countless hours in the broiling hot sun, finally swung into line
in step with all of the sixteen spigetti bands who were "in sweet CPD vociferation out-vocifer-
ating even sound itself." Wliile marching hack from the review, leg-weary and dusty-
n . -LJ.
throated, there was not one of us who
did not eonsign to the torture of
Tantalus that persistent barker who
stood. in the entrance to a cool, shady
grotto, a bottle in each hand, ex-
tolling the virtues of the "nice, cool
bcer" to be found within. But at
last the agony was over, and our
minds instinctively turned to the
thoughts of liberty.
The Exposition afforded amuse-
ment for a time, but after we had
been beguiled into seeing the Filip-
pinos, Ranch Number 1o1,the Midway,
and the Swiss Village, we began to
look for diversion in some of our old haunts. Nor were the oliiccrs of the foreign war ships
found wanting in hospitality, and we shall ever remember the delightful "tea', aboard the
" Kleberf' The French ollicers showed us every courtesy, and we fully enjoyed their "tea."
But one accident marred the occasion, when someone doped up " Capu with a few French
temperance drinks, and it was all we could do to get him back to the Olympia, even with the
help of Foy and a few marines. Aside from these diversions, the real social events of the
week were a Class German led by " King" Hoggman and a grand "Farewell Ball" the night
before our departure.
It was not until after the excitement of the Jamestown parade was over that we had
the opportunity of really settling down to the regular routine of the cruise. We had been
on the monitors during other cruises, and therefore knew what to expect in the way of
crowded quarters and small lockers. The Olympia, however, was new to all. So many of us
had been assigned to that ship that we had felt certain there wouldn't be room to turn
around 5 consequently it was a very pleasant surprise to find that the admiral's cabin
Cincluding the bath-tubj and the old wardroom had been assigned to the first class, thus
affording ample space in which to eat, smoke and sleep. A great discovery was the veranda, a
pleasant stage for our evening jubilations. In spite of these advantages, the Olympia contin-
gent for a long time envied those of us who were getting daily liberty from the flatironsg
even the Nevada, contrary to expectation, was giving all night liberty and had a regular pay
day every Friday.
The usual stay at the Newport News shipyards was somewhat shortened on account
of the Poughkeepsie raeesg so one day, after waiting several hours for " Patsy" and "Chips"
to return from liberty, we finally got under way for "little old Manhattan Isle." Scarcely
had we dropped anchor off 135th Street
when there was an unusually wild
scramble for liberty, for the fascinations
of the "Great White Way" were call-
ing, and A the Imperial, Iack's and
Murray's were offering their erstwhile
diversions, above all, the divine Anna
was nightly having trouble in making
her eyes behave.
After a day in New York, the
monitors steamed up the river to Pough-
keepsie, and the Olympians chartered a
special train to the race. We didn't
win, but we had the satisfaction of see-
ing our crew finish third after a plueky

surpassed even their cu s-
tomary hospitality, the hops
at the Griswold were better
than ever before, there was a
multitude of charming fair
ones, in short, the fussers
enjoyed a perfect paradise.
But while th e fussers
were having the time of their
lives over on Eastern Point,
a select little company of Red
Mikes were almost daily con-
gregating in the old Crocker
House Grill-in their interest
in the marvelous tales that
SHOOTING THE SUN such kindred souls forever
tell, prolonging their sessions far into the night and then making a grand rush for the last car.
It was after one of the most memorable of these gatherings that " Skimmer," in the dead of
night alighting from the car at the Pequot corner, encountered his old friend the "Goat
with the Green Eyes," and, cheered on by the plaudits of the assembled multitude, raced
the hideous monster all the way to the landing.
The monitors lay close inshore, and so the first classmen attached to them missed what
was, for the Olympians, perhaps the feature most characteristic of the stay in New London.
Scarcely would the boat shove off when the bunch would consociate in solemn conclave,
and "Janus" Saufiey, the chairman for
the night, would introduce in sounding
periods the speaker of the evening, a
living example of the topic of his speech,
who, in telling phrases and sentences
now become classic, would wield the
mighty power of his eloquence in the
cause of "Temperance and Pro-hi-
But although it would have been
utterly impossible for the prolonged
stay in the Thames to have become
monotonous, still itjwas with a great deal
of pleasurable expectation that we
weighed anchor for Bath and thc Ter-
centennial of American Shipping. Once
more the services of the Provisional
Battalion were called forg the cadet
ofiicers scraped the seaweed and verdi-
gris oft their swords, the youngsters
broke the rifies out of the forchold and
shook dice for odd leggings, and there was
a contest to discover who could lose his
white cap the quickest, but finally all
hands went ashore with happy, smi1ingC?D
faces to march in the parade to the
appropriate tune of " Onward, Christian
Soldiers." Despite the long, hard tramp
through the muddy streets, and not-
withstanding the fact that the ships
were overrun with visitors, we really
spent a very enjoyable time in Bath:
those very excellent shore dinners at the
New Meadows Inn, the delightful hops IN THE CHAINS
that the committee gave us, and the very generous hospitality extended by the Sagadahoc
and the Elks' Clubs-these were pleasures that will long remain in our memory.
All these events had consumed time, and when we left Maine it was with the feeling
that the end of the cruise was in sight, and that we were, at last, starting south for Annapolis.
True, we stopped in Newport for several days and went through with the same old program
of coaling ship and visiting the Torpedo Station CCookls personally-conducted toursb,
but there was ever present a decided feeling of unrest and suppressed excitement-lirst
class leave was near, and even great events at a time like that cannot but be treated as mere
episodes. Finally, with one last visit to the Fussers' Paradise, "dear old New London,"
where we took our cruise exams, wc got under way for the capes. It was fair weather all
the way down, so that we had no excuse for failing to keep the dayls work in Nav, but in
spite of all our gun deck sights, and notwithstanding the fact that we logged the trip only
by the deck clocks, few of us were farther along than Delaware
Bay when we dropped our hooks off the mouth of the Potomac. ,.,i........-.
The stay at 'Washington was a veritable foretaste of leave because
we were tied up to the dock and enjoyed all night liberty. How-
ever, the trip was soon over, and in a few days we were again
anchored off Annapolis. l
Every cloud has a silver lining,
Every summer cruise its endg
Every drill will have its recall,
Every trouble soon will mend.
And when the cruise is over,
And we sight old Bancroft Hall,
Wc'll go on leave a-shouting
It's a good world after all."
So we all felt on this last day of the cruise. We had Worked

In twelve hours we were going on leave

thought and dreamed about for three
hundred and sixty-five long days. It
was a day to be happy, so we planned
" Janus" Sauficy was unanimously
chosen master of ceremonies, and upon
his invitation all the first classm en from
the monitors came aboardthe Olympia.
We all assembled at the spacious
veranda abaft the admiral's cabin,
where wc were greeted by "Patsy"
Donavin's Glee Club. All the old
cruise songs were sung, and all the
episodes of the cruise were recalled.
Then "Janus" took the Hoor, and in
his most fascinating manner reminded
us of the good things of the cruise-of
the pleasant feeling of good-fellowship
that had surrounded us, and cvcnmadc
us regret that we were to experience no
more summer cruises. Finally, with
some original but most appropriate
poetry he introduced "Skimmer"

WAS not in the half-forgotten days of the old-time buccancers
lx' that the good pirate brig "Bradley A. Fiske" went a-sailing
Ae the sea, "watching and waiting for outpost and ransom."
,ks She was not one of those swift, low-lying craft that once
, h Q haunted the highways of the Spanish Main, in wait for the rich
N u f galleons laden with red gold from the Western land. Her
X Q gc Ag gallant crew were never partners of that happy band of blood-
A 1 E ' thirsty cutthroats, Kidd, Morgan, and Co., nor yet of the
x somewhat more gentlemanly thieves who sailed with Raleigh
NCQ and Drake. Her brave and warlike commander was not one
of those old sea-rovers who could not enjoy breakfast lacking
the din of clanking irons and terrified yells, nor did he become one of that band of prac-
tical jokers who were in the habit of giving matinees with a program of high diving stunts
and an entr'act of the time-honored custom of walking the plank.
Up the beautiful, swift-flowing Kennebec, into the usually quiet harbor of Bath, upon
a certain day in August, Anno Domini IQO7, there sailed a trim little brig, the "Bradley A.
Fiske." A pirate ship was she, fiying the historic black flag at her main, with an ever-
ready stout oak plank at her after-rail. Up near the home of the Kennebec Yacht Club,
with an "A-A-ll h-a-nds bring ship to anchor," over went her mud-hook. Ordinarily a
thing so uncommon as a pirate ship would have awakened the wildest consternation along
the busy little river front, but that day all the townsfolks were shouting themselves hoarse
over the celebration of the great Tercentennial
of American Shipping. So, armed to the teeth, '
a storming party of gayly clothed robbers, led by
the Admiral of all the Pirates, went ashore to -
demand the capitulation of the garrison.
The invaded town was all unaware of its
capture until the party drew near to the review-
ing stand, whereon sat in state the governor, the
mayor, and many visiting dignitaries. Admiral
Paul Jones Ornberg sent ahead, to announce his
arrival, Captain LeBourgeois, as picturesque a
chief as ever trod a heaving deck. Great, indeed,
was the mayor's dismay on beholding him, but
greater still it became when he heard the mes-
sage the Captain carried.

The trembling city's head, after a
hurried consultation with his advisers,
came to terms with astonishing alacrity.
" Oh, pirate bold!" he said, " tell your
illustrious chief that, forced by circumstances, I submit.
At any other time I would resist to the last, but now,
as you see, all my soldiers are on parade, and who could
bear to call them forth to vulgar battle? Pray bring

No sooner said than done. The pirate band was
installed in the place ofhonor at the mayor's right and
all the distinguished captives presented to them. After-
ward they were intrusted to the gentle mercies of the
ladies, who proceeded to accomplish what their men
could never do-the subjugation of their captors!
Toward evening, Admiral Ornberg returned to his
ship to make preparation for the review of the fleet of
captured warships at anchor in the stream. Visiting
first the Olympia, the flagship, the distinguished visitor,
with his staff, was piped over the side
with all the
honors of an admiral. The staff was indeed a
noble aggregation of followers of the Jolly Roger,
and included Commander Winner, the Chief of
Staff, Pirate Captain LeBourgeois, Chief Boat-
swain's Mate Stoer, and Pirate-Aides-to-the-Ad-
miral Venus Kinkaid, Micky Martin, and Molly
McGuire. The Skipper, unfortunately, was
ashore, but the First Luff extended to the
Admiral and his men the hospitality of the ward-
room. A careful inspection of the flagship,
under the guidance of Bishop Bill Boyd, was
held, and before leaving, the renowned chieftain
deigned to compliment the First Luff upon the
sea-going appearance of his ship. Then with
eight sideboys, four ruffles, a salute of seventeen
guns, and the felicitations of all on board, the
,Pirate Admiral returned to his flagship,
where, with seamanlike precision, he
weighed anchor and set all sail for the
On the Nevada a close inspection was
made of the Captain's sideboard, and so
delighted was the famous chief that he
presented the Skipper with a hand-
somely engraved sword of honor, with
kindcst words of his most distinguished
consideration. A like ceremony took
place on the Florida, where the ward-
room officers received a beautiful
trophy, secured in some forgotten bit
of honest piracy. The midshipmen
oiiicer of the deck was honored with an appropriate gift from the Admiral's private col-
lection, and was solemnly enjoined to keep always before him the ideals inspired by the
One untoward circumstance marred the visit to the Arkansas. It transpired, after
careful questioning of the crew, that the meals aboard had not been up to the high standard
set by the New Meadows Inn. Admiral Ornberg, determined that justice should be where
justice was due, at once instituted a S. C. H., which found the commissary steward the
guilty man. The indignant pirates were just proceeding to hang the unhappy wretch at
the yard-arm, when the Captain, for whom all entertained the most profound feelings of
respect, begged that they temper justice with mercy, a request that the Admiral instantly
By this time night had fallen, and soon there began to fiit o'er the placid water brightly
lighted pleasure craft which dared the menace of the visiting terror of the seas rather than
forego witnessing the gorgeous spectacle of an illuminated water carnival then forming
near the Yacht Club House. But the "Bradley A. Fiske" merely patrolled the course of
the parade, the searchlights of the fleet throwing her into sharp relief, revealing in her all
the beauty of perfect workmanship, and showing her masterly maneuvering to the delighted
crowds along the docks. The brig, her crew, and her gallant commander were roundly
cheered from end to end of the as-
sembled multitude, and, in passing,
received ovations from each lship of
the squadron. The judges of the
parade paid her the highest tribute
of all in awarding her a special grand
prize for the beauty of her construc-

In the morning, the " Bradley A.
Fiske" was seen no more. Like 3
ghost had she slipped into the pretty
harbor, and like a ghost leaving the
scene of its midnight revels had this
relic of the past stolen away in the
morning mist. Back she sailed to
the hoary traditions of our ancestors,
with their blessed old pirates of land
and sea, with their gentlemanly swash-
bueklers and polite villains, with their
distressed ladies and ehivalrous knightsg
back to the days when the strong right
hand was the highest court of appeal,
and private wrongs were quietly righted
on the held of the cloth of greeng
back to the merry times of those fighting
old dandies who bled and died for that
figment of the brain called principle,
laying the foundation of a new, free
country., No more, from outxtlie ashes
of' the past, will come a-sailing and
a-singing that brave and dashing crew,
for now has been sailed the last cruise of the last pirate brig, the "Bradley A. Fiske."

, Q " ERE'S to a good olde time!"ee a wish that was in every heart and every
FW mouth on that long-expected and never-to-be-forgotten evening of
6 ' lf Q. .V Friday, September 28, 1906. They say Friday's an unlucky day, but
Q' 1 the supper so well started that Friday night and brought to so suc-
isl ,fm 5 f cessful a close in the "wee, sma' hours" of "the morning after" certainly
I ,SQ V disproved that superstition. Hereafter may be eaten good suppers, may
be heard good speeches, may be drunk good wine, but never again will
there be so happy a combination of those three good things as will make us forget that
evening at the Willard.
The hour set was ten, and almost on the minute the orchestra broke out with the new
class march, and to the music of H Helm 's A-Lee" in we trooped to as perfect a gem of a
banquet hall as we can ever hope to see. The table was an immense figure "S," with the
chairs so arranged that on every hand each one of us could see only the happy and jubilant
faces of the other merrymakers. Great bunches of daisies and white roses were bedded
in deep banks of green, which, with the dainty trailing smilax and the snowy white linen,
kept well before the attention the class colors, green and white. At every plate was the
quaint place-card with the hope for a "good olde time," a pretty supper program, and
the cleverly designed little silver keepsake that 'will serve as a memento of a perfectly
happy evening. As we took our places, the mingled grace and benediction of the
Service, the National Anthem, fell softly on our ears, while from the walls and ceiling
burst banners of the red, white and blue.
A banquet without toasts is like a ship without sails, so Doug at once started the game
with the " Class of 19o8," a toast responded to with a shout and by everyone rising to sing
the class song, and of course we followed this up with a rousing " Here's to Archie Douglas,
tried and true." After that we could wait no longer, but turned to and demolished the
loaded trays of good things and the magnums of sparkling nectar supplied in such generous
profusion. After our hunger was stayed and our thirst assuaged, we were at last in that
pleasant state of mind and temper that is so real a necessity for a successful " feast of reason."
Toast followed toast, and so carefully prepared and wittily delivered were the responses
that near the end one could scarcely hear a word for the uproar of enthusiastic applause
and congratulation. The toasts were: "The Fellows," by Janus Saufleyg "Bilgers," by
Duke Rawls, " The Santee," by Van der Veer, " Athletics," by Spuds Turner, and " Fussersf'
by Patsy Donavin. Several impromptu toasts, responded to with cheers and laughter,
were offered, and the "Tried and True" song was used in season and out. Throughout
the Whole supper a pretty accompaniment of carefully selected music was played by Pro-
fessor Zimmerman and our own Academy band.
But even the best things must end, and some time after midnight, though loath to go,
We wandered out, realizing that from now on We must pass through all the rest of lifc with
never another such evening, although a few of us may succeed from time to time in partly
scaling those divine heights achieved only during a class supper. All over Wasliington
that night, from groups of four or five, could be heard the strains of " We'll Drink To-Night
to 19o8," and each of us lived over in dreams those pleasant hours of a night that cannot
but take rank at the head of the line of our good times.
Hcedlcss of the extravagance attending the numerous demands at
Christmas time, that heterogeneous aggregation of wit, beauty, and origi-
nality known as Patsy Donavin's gang insisted upon a costumed Christmas
parade. We didn't object at first, but when Skim showed us the price of admission we
got wise. With unaecustomed foresight, however, we collected more convicts than any
other animal. Conviets, gentle reader, cost only half as much as Teddy Bears and Carrie
Gadzooks, what a conglomeration of woozlc-beasts we did turn out! Rcveille busted at
5 A. M., and, for the first time since the summer cruise, two hundred first elassmen greeted
the rising sun. Clowns, tigers, Hooligans, hippos, pteroydactyls, dyphoneoxyosoruses
all combined to do honor to Santa Claus. Patsy knew that
music hath power to soothe the savage breastg accordingly
our bemedaled professor was on hand with his imported noises. 'X T
Then it started and rambled away. Kind reader, don't
ask what. The band struck up, the howl of the wolf, the 'rf J
bray of the ostrich, the cackle of the lion, the neigh of the cow
struck up at the same time but not in the same time. They
told us later it sounded like this:
" Good morning, all people and friends good and true,

Patsy, the animated St. Patriek's

marched them back again, but unlike
Adam he named them not. The devil

We kept it f
up until we
got tired, and
then the chain
gang broke its shackles, the
elephant checked its trunk,
the Indian buried his hatehet
in the phrenology of the Puri-
tan maid, and with a fierce,
rudeyellwebeat it.. Perhaps ' I
we had a good time-this is !...J. a--
a point that escapesius now.
This, however, we recall: Skim collected our
coin. But what care we? For four years
we looked forward to the day when we would
make the noise in a Christmas parade. At
last we feel the satisfaction of something
accomplished-somebody done. Christmas
comes but once a yearg we figure in the
parade like the main guy in the burial
service-only once in a lifetime.
But as we skidooed, what was left of
the band slowly came to and got into action
-he carried a Nav book and flashed
it in the face of the chain gang, who
cried aloud, with anguish and with
pain, t'There is no

hope!,' But Dr.
from the China-
his forefinger at
Alpha Pegasi and exclaimed,
"There is hope!" Cries of " Soak
him!" "Bump him!" rent the
i air, but Doe, ignoring the wild
mob, stood not on the order of
his going, but skidooed with
much velocity, giving an excel-
lent imitation of a cleansleever
going to formation, at the same
time dropping an oath and two
bottles of No. 23.
The latter were
up and consumed
by thc goat and

with a tune we hadn't expected to hear until the time comes when wc will be allowed to
" mingle with our friends "-a time and song, however, that are appropriate at any and
every old time. So we paused, arrested in full flight, while we managed to emit, with
hoarse rumblings from parched throats, these words:
" Should old acquaintance be forgot
As long as we'rc alive?
We'll drown the sorrows of past years,
And drink to old 2.52
And drink to old 2.5 again,
And drink to old 2.55
We'll fill the bowl with gasoline,

When out upon life's sea we go,
These days will still remain
Our memories, dearest treasures, though
They ne'er will come again,
Our hearts will often yearn for thee-
The class to which we're true,
So here's to dear old 1908,
And to the Navy Blue!
We'll drink to-night to IQOS-
The class to us so dear,
We'll drink her health and happiness
Through each succeeding year,
So here's a toast to the Navy,
And her colors, boys, so true,
We'll drink it down to 1908,
And to the Navy Blue.
Our topsails reefed and filled away,
All snug aloft, we know,
Despite the storm, we'll still be gay,
And let the tempest blow,
We'llV gather round in friendship, then,
With spirits warm and true,
And drink to all the '08 men-
To our own Navy Blue.
And if we never homeward go,
Borne on the ocean's breast,
But Hnd among the caves below
A sailor's place of rest,
Still, ere we close our eyes and pass
Beneath those depths of blue,
We'll think of all our dear old class,
And then the Navy Blue.

SAUFLEY-Gentlemen and classmates! This is a very serious question we are called
upon to consider this evening, and we have now placed before us a magnificent opportunity
to demonstrate the incontrovertible fact that we are no longer children, but are endowed
with all the faculties of men. I hail, as you know, from-the grand old Commonwealth of
Kentucky, the land of thoroughbred horses, talented men, and fair women. In that glori-
ous old State nothing is so highly prized as consistency, therefore, gentlemen, I ask you,
if you value our most cherished traditions, to be consistent. Make up your minds to a
thing, and then do it. And after very careful consideration of every aspect of this affair,
you will come to the conclusion, as I have, that the thing to do is to do nothing. With due
consideration for my opponents in this matter, and the pro-
foundest respect for all who hold an opposite or any other
opinion, I thank you for your attention.
W. SMITH--Mr. President!
W. SMITH-Now look-it, fellows! You fellows all know that I ' ,
went to Boston Tech, and that in my youth I gained some fame as
a bicycle rider-you may remember, by the way, that I'n1 manager f
of the crew-and I have traveled some-been down in Texas and I
all over-and so with the results of my wide experiences before you,
you realize that when I talk about a thing, and say I know, I know.
Now I think the best thing to do is to let me go down and talk it
over with the Commandant, and- mx
TURNER-Mr. President! W xr
TURNER-It seems to me, before deciding on any definite step f
to be taken, that we have time to think it over from every point of
view. There is no use in being in too much of a hurry, and there
are not enough people here to settle this thing, anyway. The sug-
gestion I would make is that we take two weeks to think this
matter over and then come down here with our minds fully made up as to what we wish
to do and then do it, once for all Ceries of "Noi" "Do it now!" etcj.
LAMMERS-I move that we accept Mr, Smith's plan, with no amendments.
DONAVIN-I agree partly with Mr. Saufley and partly with Mr. Turner, but where one
has been a trifie too liberal, the other has been too conservativeg so I propose that we
split the difference and call it one week.
LOWELL and ICAUFFMAN-1X!OW, that's talking! There's some sense to that.
LAMMERS-I withdraw my motion.
DOUGLAS-Your motion hasn't been before the class. Now if there is no further dis-
cussion, Markland has a few words to say.
MARKLANIJ-I just wanted to ask you people if you have any objections to taking
another dollar off your accounts for the LUCKY BAG.
CHere Welshimer took the floor and delivered a thirty-minute speech against the
advisability of changing the name of Arkansas. We regret that we are unable to reproduce
this speech in full.j
DOUGLAS-BCfOf6 we adjourn, Mr. Carmichael wants to say something.
CARMICHAEL fwith portfolio of correspondence and a sheaf of telegramsj-I have
written these people several times lately, and I just received a letter to-day saying that the
pipes will be here next week.
DOUGLAS'-Well, I guess that's all for to-night.

' ' Bumpcd Duck Calhoun after breakfast because we didn't have
Fl-, , fresh milk. His excuse was that since we had been at sea for two days,
K, he hadn't been able to buy any. Then we all went up on the bridge deck
to smoke. jimmy the Flea was jumping all around and wanted us to
work, but we didn't feel like it. When school call busted we all lay below to work a nav
prob. It was a whole meridian altitude, so we yelled l'soak" and decided not to work it.
At dinner time Can Eddy came off watch and said we would be in New London at half-
past three, so we got Bill Hodgman to make out the liberty list. During dinner we nick-
named Swede Peterson "Bunker." He didn't like it a bit, and objected so strenuously
that the "hard guys" bit him. Then we all turned in till three o'clock, when we' got into
blues and stood by on the quarter-deck as we dropped the mud hook and lowered the launch.
As soon as she hit the water we all piled in her. just as we shoved off, the Skipper came on
deck and looked reproaehfully at us, saying to the Exec, " Well, I was in no particular hurry
to get ashore anyway." just before we hit the Griswold dock, the Olympia signaled "No
liberty for the midshipmen to-day." How unfortunate!
Skeet and I were punching meal tickets that evening at the hotel. The dinner was
fine and the hop afterwards even better. There were only ten of us, but we drove the
"cits" away and owned the place all evening. I think the "cits" were sore. At half-past
eleven we bade our fond farewell and went back to the home in the Skipper's special boat.
Got back and found that the boy had swung my hammock, and right glad I was to turn
in after a day of such strenuous work.

9 F COURSE I wasn't a bit surprised when I received an invitation to the
0 1 Leap Year dance to be given in the Auditorium. Why, I knew every
V Q r X girl in Annapolis well, and although I am not bragging, yetI believed
Q Q that I was looked upon very favorably by them, and as I had asked
he them all to dance with me many times, it was with a feeling of con-
fidence that I marched boldly over to the hop. I bowed pleasantly to
xl - 0 X every girl I met as I entered, and felt sure that my card would soon
- I be overfiowing.
9 I Down in the dressing room I met a classmate who seemed highly
t excited, and he told me he was afraid he was going to be a gold brick.
"Follow in my wake," said I, encouragingly, "and I will see that you
get some dances, for every girl who asks mc will have to ask you also." With these words of cheer,
we sauntered up the corridor and received our programs from the chaperon of the evening, who wished
us success, then we strolled around among the bevies of girls, and it kept us bowing profusely all the
time as I recognized each and every girl I knew. It was not long until a young lady asked me for a
dance, but her card was so full that she had to take the ninth extra with me, and as for my friend-
well, she took the tenth extra with him, out of sympathy, no doubt, just then we became separated,
and the next time I saw him, a perfect peach was waltzing him dreamily around the room, and I
wondered how she could have taken him and overlooked me. Still, I did not know her so very well,
and really could not expect her to ask me to dance.
For some strange reason I sat out 'fifteen straight dances, and then a soft voice whispered at my
elbow, and I turned and saw a young lady standing beside me. She wasn 't pretty, she was very tall,
and had fiery red hairg but she asked me to dance, and we sallied forth. The first thing she spoiled was
my shine, and then my disposition, which was already in a pretty bad way. She threw me around the
room, bumping me into everybody and spoiling the part in my hair. And it was the "Merry Widow
Waltz," too, and I just dote on waltzing. At last, after a perfect age, the dance was over, and she led
me back to the seat I was warming before she met me. At the first opportunity I beat it out into the
corridor, where one of the committee hailed me and made me go back and sit down.
After four more dances, of which I danced none, I could stand it no longer. There was I, an
erstwhile popular man, sitting out all the dances, while my friend who entered the ball-room with fear
and trembling was dancing every one and seemed to be the beau of the hour. I realized only too' late
that,I was a fallen angel, a lemon and a gold brick of the first order. Cautiously making my way across
the fioor I arrived at the receiving stand, where I determined to hide myself behind the large fiags in
the rear, and there, much to my inward feelings of thankfulness, I found a companion who, like myself,
had made a social error in coming to the dance.
With my head resting on his shoulder I consoled him, and we swore that henceforth we would be
womanhaters and Red Mikesg then I forgot the mental agony of the evening, and we decided that,
after all, the whole affair was a frost. It wasn't gotten up in the right way and everything was badly
mismanaged, and as for the girls-well, I didn't care half so much for them as I had thought. . . VVe
were rudely brought to our senses by the janitor poking his head behind the Hags and saying, "Dance
is over, gemman," and we emerged to find the place utterly deserted. As we went back to Bancroft
Hall, my companion forcibly remarked, "Well, thank the Lord, it 's only 117 more days till june."
The name of Lovers' Lane implies
'Tis but for loving pairs
To sit and spoon in quiet shade,
And banish all their cares.
But if you wish, with maiden fair,
To sit upon a bench,
You Hnd upon each shady seat
A broadly smiling wench,
Whose color either matches jade
Or else a Khaki shirtg
And near her is some family's pride,
A-digging in the dirt.
Alas! no quiet you can have-
No seat in ample shadeg
For Lovers' Lane's now taken up
With the baby-coach brigade.
Did you ever sit and wonder
How the devil-how in thunder
The duty list is run from day to day?
How the gods of luck that steer it,
And the imps of fate that queer it,
Make one shiver on the hottest day in May?
When you send an invitation
To the fairest in creation
To go with you to Youngster Farewell Ball,
And as the time draws near,
And the thoughts of her grow dear-
You find you go on duty, darn it all!
On a Sunday you're to dine
With some friends, and crack some wine-
You think of the good time there is in, store,
And you've calculated Monday:
No, you couldn't go on Sunday-
Then you hear yourself read out for "Second Floor
But if a gold brick comes your way,

Hunting partners who were dodging every dance.
MARTHA WASHINGTON HALL.
MY DEAR MR. EASY-I write to express to you my sincerest thanks for your most noble
and gallant attentions Shown to our party of girls while in Annapolis, last week, and I must
say that if we may measure the standard of manliness and courtesy of the cadets by yourself
they must surely be ideal young men.
It was perfectly lovely in you to ask Miss Prim down to the next hop, and I wondered
if it would be asking too much of you to invite Miss Onion, also. She is one of the dearest
girls in school and is a great favorite of mine, and I believe that a trip to Annapolis and the
pleasure of attending a Naval Academy hop would be a most delightful surprise for Miss
5nion, especially as this is her last year in school. I
Trusting I am not imposing too much on your generosity, and thanking you again for
the lovely manner in which you conducted us over the grounds, I remain,
WASHINGTON, D. C., LYDIA ROPEM.
April the twelfth.
U. S. NAVAL ACADEMY,
ANNAPOLIS, MD., April 22, IQO7.
MY DEAR MISS ROPEM-I received your most welcome and flattering letter several days
ago, and it is with great reluctance that I am forced to Say I have been utterly unable to get
a partner for the young lady of whom you wrote.
It is useless for me to Say that I consider only a select few of the midshipmen as eligible
to be Miss Onion'S partner at the hop. However, all my efforts have failed. My room-
mate is now under treatment for a peculiar heart trouble, and the doctors Say that a meeting
with such an attractive young lady might prove disastrous. Mr. Fussoid, who is a delight-
ful dancer and talker, had promised to take her, but is now Sulfering from mental aberration.
My last hope was dashed to the ground when Mr. Stungbefore informed me that he is
just recovering from an acute attack of oenomania.
Believe me, I am indeed Sorry to disappoint both you and Miss Onion, but at a later
hop I will do my best to invite Miss Onion down.
R. U. EASY, U. S. Navy.
Evidently Spuds was worried, he concluded his appeal for copy with a peroration that
made his assistants cringe in terror.
" Now look here, you fellows! all copy for the BAG must be in the hands of the publisher
by Tuesday night. That gives you just forty-eight hours to turn out ten pages of miscel-
laneous stuff. Now get busy." And he made his exit, all heedless of the piteous cries of
the "staff" for quarter.
"Well," said Andy, after the tyrant had departed, "suppose each one of us goes to his
room and tries to think out a good idea-something novel, startling, and above all, original,
then to-morrow night we'll all get together and compare notes. And let me say right here,"
glancing sternly at Van, who had done a little scribbling on his own account, "that I think
everything a fellow writes should be for the BAG, and"-here Doug and others too numerous
to mention came in for a share of Andy's scorn-"everybody really should use all his time
after taps for LUCKY BAG work."
"Well," said Patsy, "all that's right to the point, but the fact remains that we've got
ten pages to do by to-morrow night. Now, if I weren't going to Washington to-morrow to
see my eye specialist, I'd-" '
Here Van interrupted.
"Gentlemen, I've got an idea-at least, though it's not mine originally, it's a stunt
we used to do at Princeton. Now you fellows may not realize that Princeton's beaten Yale
seven years out of the last ten in baseball-"
"Aw, cut it, and get to the idea," said Dad.
" Well, four or five of us could get together, light our pipes, drink 'Bud' and dope out a
story, it would pass around from man to man until it reached a natural conclusion-"
"Or died a natural death," interpolated Dad.
"And then we would have something really good," continued Van, not minding
the interruption. " Now let's try that, make the story center on some feature of Academy
life, for instance-" I
Here Brainy became enthusiastic. " Yes, let's have a scene at Madame Bond's-a few
chorus girls, a cold bottle," Dad smacked his lips audibly, "a hairbreadth escape over the
wall, pursued by the watchman-"
"And the green-eyed goat," suggested Skimmer.
"Nothing like that," said Patsy, "let's have the denouement at a hop-the adventure
of a gold brick, for instance. I say, people, that's not bad, come to think of it, a gold brick
really must have a soul, and feelings, and all that rot-"
" Well, you ought to know," muttered someone who had been "stung," but the remark
was lost on Patsy, for just then Piersol piped up in that thundering bass of his:
" Nay, my fellow-citizens! 'The play's the thingl' There's nothing like a little scenario,
a few characters thrown in-Doug and Tubby Smith here might write the dramatis personae
-and lots of dialogue. Now it's like this--"
And he went on to outline a charming little comedyg it partook somewhat of the nature
of a comic opera, for the "staff" finally came down with a beautiful snoring chorus, and
then Burton gave up.
So, owing to the multitude of conflicting ideas, the story was never written, but as
Andy, the ever practical, remarked, " Well, we haven't written a story, but we've filled one
of the ten pages, anyway."

"Seats" had been given, but the staff remained standing until the O. C. arrived. Before seating
himself, however, he pleasantly nodded to each member of that select body, and said, cheerily:
"Good morning, gentlemen! "
"Good morning, sir!" the chorus answered.
The difficult feat of seating one 's self without jolting the table or disturbing the two spoons and
separate salt cellars known only to the staff table required several minutes of silence.
"Well, Turner, I suppose you 're glad the LUCKY BAG is nearly finished?"
"Yes, sir, I amg it's a pretty big job and keeps me awfully busy."
"I can quite sympathize with you, but luckily I sent back the last proof of my next book a couple
of days ago. You will be glad to know that it looks bright for the Pay Bill. "
' 'Indeed!" put in Johnny.
"Do you think it will pass, sir?" added Nellie.
"Mr, Cowie called me up from Washington last night, and they all say it's pretty sure to get through
the House, and most of the Senate Committee seem to be favorable."
The morning formality had been gone through with, and a sickly silence rested upon the staff
table. Everybody was busy with his Cream of Wheat except the O. C., who ate nothing. Finally he
looked up and partly smiled.
"I've come to the conclusion that the midshipmen are awfully lazy."
"How is that, sir?" faithfully responded johnny.
"I see they don 't like to get up in the morning to shave."
"Well, it's kind of hard these dark mornings," volunteered someone of the four.
"I don't find it so. I get up at five o 'clock and shave before I dress every time I 'm on duty. Only
takes fifteen minutes more and you have it off your hands for the day. There was no such thing as
powdering your face to hide a two-days' beard when I was a midshipmanf'
It was dinner, and the staff found the O. C. already there,having just finished a rapid inspection
of the Mess-Hall. As he sat down he cordially nodded to each staff officer.
"Good afternoon, Mr. Turner, good afternoon, Mr. Foy, good afternoon, Mr. Iseman."
"Good afternoon, sir," murmured the well-trained chorus in reply.
"Let 's see: this is the last week of the month, isn 't it, Mr. Iseman?"
"Yes, sir, I believe it is."
"Conduct grades go in effect, then, on Saturday? Ha! ha! Hope none of you gentlemen are on the
"Not yet, sir," Nellie modestly put in, "but I've been running on one demerit since I slept over
breakfast one morning last week. "
"You want to look out, Mr. Foy: guess I'll keep an eye on you. Ha! ha! ha! How about it?"
"Well, I don 't know, but I guess I'll have to be good."
"Oh, by the way, gentlemen, my wife is going to have several young ladies staying with her next
week: she 'd be very glad to have you come over some afternoon."
The meal had been uneventful except that the O. D. had shocked the staff officers by pouring
some milk from his glass into his coffee, as he was wont to do at his own table. The O. C. suddenly
"See this blouse? Well, the old thing is about to fall to pieces, and all this gold is nothing but
copper, yet the tailor in Washington soaked me thirty-two dollars for it. Never heard of such robbery!
anybody can go out in town and buy a perfectly good 'civilian serge coat for ten dollars. That 's the
way they do all Navy people."
"Guess they think we 're all easy marks," Nellie had courage to say.
"Speaking of marks," continued the O. C., "did I ever tell you about my little dog I call Middy?
Well, I've got him trained so that if I hold a piece of paper up and say 'Middy, this is a four,' he
jumps around and barks, and does his best to get it. If I say its a two-five and give it to him, he
hangs on for dear life and chews it up. But if I say it's unsat he 'll put his tail between his legs and
A long silence.
"That reminds me of a story about a whale," Nellie was about to commence, but the O. C. rang
"Well, what 'd you have on the P Work, Saturday?"
The staff look bored but Spuds nobly responded, "Oh, only a couple of time sights, a deviation
table, and a chronometer correction."
"Kind of soaked you, eh? Well, I never learned any Nav till after I graduated, but I believe I
could do all that in a couple of hours. You just ought to work everything by Mareq St. Hilaire 's method.
When is Fultz coming down?"
"We just ought to out it all over the Army this year, you see they lose six men. I looked up their
ages and weights in the register, and they 're lots older than our men. "
There was no response-the staff had fainted.

Playing the Game

Said the "Spig" to Ken Heron one day,
'I want to know just how they do it,
So I will be able to play."
'Well, now is the time to get in itg
We have all our battle-boats near,
But we lack a bright light for our lighthouse-
Sit down on this ditty box here."
For hours he kept quietly shining,
Till a thick fog came drifting along,
When he kept up his part of the war game
By sounding a warning "ding, dong."
And there he might still have been shining,
Had someone not put out the glim
By putting him wise to the war game,
And how we had made light of him.

Take a look at the Chink,
And you surely will think
How jealous old Zimmy must be.
O'er the sea-wall fell Jabez and Gene,
WVho a crowd of fair damsels had seen.
Though the method was strange
They cut drill at the range
And the femmes all declared it was keen.

The curtain slowly drops upon our play,
And now, dear people, ere you turn away,
One moment must I claim in which to dwell
Upon our many thanks and fond farewell.
Our task is through, and we have done our best
It is with you, dear friends, success must rest.
We work for love, no payment is our due-
Our only hope is that it pleases you,
And that perhaps a few will not disdain
To say our time has not been spent in vain.
So now Farewell! we leave with fickle fate
This book, the Lucky Bag of Nineteen Eight.
