A "polished" gentleman from the 'iwild and woolly" Empire State, who came into the Navy principally to make a living, though some say it was because of brass buttons and gold lace. A steady consumer of Woodbury's cosmetics-to such an extent that he knows more about dandruff cures than navigation. His good comradeship and his constant willingness to " ketch one" with you-even in his own room-has always kept him near the limit. But Sal accepts all things, from a gold brick to a 1.5, with a true optimistic spirit-is never known to rhino. Is a talented raconteur of new CU ' 1 stories.

Buzzard. Class Football. An innocent, giggling, young Pennsylvania Dutchman, who is always pleased with any suggestion, and enters into it enthusiastically for a few seconds until something else is proposed. He is a good sailor, but was terribly annoyed on the cruise by having to turn out for night watches. Until the farewell ball Sec- Z1- ond Cl iss ye Lr he was L ch Lrter memhei of the Red Mikes, but then he took his ihrst plunge into the social whirl of the Academy, and emerged without his class ring. It is in good keeping, though., and Dutch is now beginning to realize the serious things of life and longs to assume certain responsibilities. He would like the Navy Hne, only " it's no place for a married man." Perhaps it were best to settle down to a quiet life in old New York and let the Navy shift for itself. Though not naturally boast- ful, he once spent an entire evening telling how the House of Hanover put the French to rout, gaining much glory and honor.

His delight has ever been to get a big margin the first term, and when the balmy days of spring arrive, he "lays back" and "enjoys life," to the discomfiture of the Profs. who decorate trees with his name. His ambition to get a real standing in the register before he faced the retiring board was realized at the end of Second Class year. On his First Class cruise he nearly became a hero by blowing up one of the N evada's boilers. Nightly, for one short week, he created a new Romeo, doing a farewell stunt from the balcony that brought tears to the eyes of Juliet below. He is one of the most lovable and affectionate men in the class to those who know him. He loves a story if it is a good, moral one. "Is this yoiu or yjour brother?"

Always ready for a rough-house and generally comes out on top. Manages to be late at two for- mations every month, thus ob- taining a season ticket for the early rising squad. Receives assistance from the entire company in his monthly shave. Drew a gold brick for a hop Youngster year and became a confirmed Red Mike for two years. Fell from his perch, however, First Class cruise and joined the throng of fussers, Exceedingly good-natured and has never lost his temper. Is a welcome addition to any gathering of the fellows. Was a howling success in the Glympia Rogues' Gallery. He is but little disturbed by the trifling affairs of this unimportant world, his fishy eyes lighting up only at the mention of the magic words, " fruit cake."

Advised Mose as to the proper hair tonicg the fruits of this counsel may be seen by the careful reader in the picture of Mose printed on another page. Hides behind his manner of partial reserve a charming personality which endears him to us all. Has the same bad habit as Sherlock Holmes and De Quincey, and will persist in it despite the many admonitions of his friends.

He took the lemons that fate handed him and started a lemonade stand with them. His features do not know the value of team work, but his classmates know the value of his friendship. Also he's short in stature but long on intellect. When he first entered the Academy he thought he would rather swing a club on. the New York police force than wear a sword in Uncle Sam's Navy. Since learning the pleasures and delights of the seagoing life, he's first, last, and always for the Navy. At first he went to the hops merely to give the " loidies " . . .

One of the most modest men in the class. He has a quiet air and an artistic temper- ament.

He always had the "makes" in his room, but First Class year he learned to enjoy a "man's" smoke, and now uses nothing but big, black cigars.

An indolent, sorrowful- looking man who manages to get just about three times as much pleasure out of the routine life at the Academy as any of the rest of us. His sad visage, quiet speech and slow manner- isms seem to suggest disappoint- ments which happened. long be- fore we young fellows were born. But don't judge too quicklyg this is neither an object of sympathy nor a student of theology, but a clever, interesting chap-bright as a dollar-who ambles around, disguised as a funeral, for the purpose of " La poudre aux yeux." A man of unusual experiences, who tells just enough of the wonderful things which have happened to him to arouse our curiosity over hosts of hidden escapades. Shows his ingenuity in the fussing line by making his rendezvous just on the other side of the Executive Mansion, so that he can do his waiting in the little room where the two ducks hang. So devoted is he to the business inter- ests of this book that the jingle of LUCKY BAG dollars has been music to his ears. How often have we seen him, seated on the last four vertebrae, feet stretched out, cigarette in hand, the look of "miles away" on his face-a picture of absolute repose.

Always beset with trials and tribulations of state, be it the class ring, the LUCKY BAG, or certain personal dilhculties. A kinky-haired, earnest, hard- working cracker from Georgah. He has a large, mellow voice, which he uses to good advantage on all occasions, from class meet- ings to arguments with the Yid. He loves a joke as well as any of us, but it must be dissected, analyzed and proved conclusively to be a joke before he will have anything to do with it-then hear him laugh. A favorite with the ladies because of his fascinating, old-school politeness. The absence of stripes from his sleeves can be explained only on the theory that the responsibility for what appears between the covers of this volume was deemed sufficient for the shoulders of one man.

Dutch will always come to the rescue of a friend who is financially embarrassed, for he has a considerable amount stowed away in his locker, and will give all, if it is necessary. He has had trouble with the girls at home, for after each return from leave a new picture appears on his locker door, a new daily bazoo is edited, and the flow of gifts is again commenced.

His long, lugubrious face and deep-set eyes seem the very presentment of grief, but he has the most cheerful, happy- go-lucky, devil-may-care disposi- tion of us all. Has discovered the secret of drifting through academic days with the least edort, and has constantly availed himself of his discovery. True to one at home, he shuns feminine society in general, and holds high office in the Auburn Hibernians. Decided early that all athletics were too much work, and now spends his time with his "makes" and a pack of cards. His light spirits form a good foil to Guiler's seriousness and earnestness, and their union, like that of r old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Spratt, is perfect. Never exerts himself except to help a friend, and then he will upset heaven and earth and the O11 discipline department to do so. 'fGot any chawin'?-thank you." "Sure! Ain'd-d-d-t it?

I ' 'g 5 X the least doubt that any self-respecting Second Class should reckon its i f if history from the moment when, having given "three cheers for those ' about to leave us," it streams out to overrun a certain. long-tabooed g , bench set between age-green cannon by the Tripoli Monument. So it befell that on a certain bright morning in june, Anno Domini 1908, having fulfilled that time-honored custom, we strolled nonchalantly into dinner formation and learned from the mouth of the Cadet Adjutant that we would henceforth be known as the Second Class. Why, bless me! Had we ever been anything else? Already we had the bored expression, the blase walk and the non-reg. wearing apparel that were the outwardland visible signs of our exalted state-all these we had assumed as though to the manner born. How condescendingly we watched the 'Youngsters Cnee .Plebesj enjoying their first hopfwhile we, incidentally, gave the ladies a treat ourselves. With what a weather-worn and sea-going air we rolled down to the Santee wharf next morning, preceded by a dusky caravan which carried our bags, mattress, service, strong-box and writing materials, that their owner might devote his undivided attention to sundry painful farewells. Of the cruise itself there remain no very distinct memories. It was a pleasant, dreamy, summer-aelittle work, little responsibility and the liberty boat running on a regular schedule, especially for the greasy ones. Bath we did to a deep, rich sepia, at New London the pro- prietor of the Crocker bought a new auto on the strength of our patronage alone. Between whiles we chased wrecks, visited Navy Yards, and copied voluminous notes from someone's last year's book. Leave, always a fruitful topic of discussion, was completely overshad- owed by the delightful anticipations of the Class Supper. As the imaginary, so the real. For the first time we found ourselves, in September, actually counting the days until the twenty-eighth, and looking forward. with impatience to the day when we would use our return tickets to Crabtown. At last the day arrived, and with it there came to Baltimore an eagerly expectant crowd of second classmen, anxious to 242 celebrate the completion of one-half of their arduous undergraduate life. The supper was there, and what a supper! No feeble words could possibly describe its kaleidoscopic joysg but each one of us will, in after years, look back to that occasion HS the real Climax of Our good times as midshipmen together, and see in it what a potent factor that ethereal thing called class spirit can be in our daily life. Altogether it was in a most optimistic mood that we signed up next day and, having stowed our cits, resolutely faced another academic year. Alas! what a change! In three weeks we lost eight ol? our already much-depleted number'--eight Whom WC had k110W11 and loved for two years, and whose departure left big gaps which time alone will fill. Wild rumors had it that the brigade was to be reduced one-half, and truly, as far as thc elimina- tion of the Second Class would aid in its accomplishment, this endeavor seemed in a fair way to succeed. Indeed, after the first month's marks went up, many of us regretted the valuable time we had wasted in returning from leave at all. However, all hands braced sharp up, and by the semi-ans there was no one but had some sea-room, scant though it might be, to the weather side of a 2.5. Apparently, at the eleventh hour, the Powers that Be relentedg certainly the dreaded exams turned out to be veritable gifts, and the number who came out unsat for the year was a great relief after our dismal expectations. And now, with the hardest pull nearly over, we can rest on our oars a bit and soberly gaze back over our course. Bright places there are, and happy memories in plenty scattered along it, but it is to the Class of Nineteen Nine that we particularly owe what has bC6I1, undoubtedly, the pleasantest time of our brief naval careerfrthe days which we have spent as Second Classmen. 243 1 if ,, MS 2- 1 A :QL ' Q ,- W il' N ' V Yin: 1 I XSJA-. k ' 'V-L ' qu-,SUM - V ' L ' V ' 'Ll ' Aa ' EQ- ex? it - F - Z ,-X 9"",fT.'. .g if .4 ,V . 74, K. .

A f With this in mind we omit any such commonplace observation, feeling that in one event we could not displace any belief in it, or in the other convince you of its truth. We could tell you in a neat little summary all that the class has said and done from the moment it quakingly entered Plebedom until it rested from a flighty trip through Youngster year. But what's the use? lf you are a miclshipman you can look back and recollect what you said or did, and would have our history much more realistically than we could paint it. lf you are a mother, or father, or, perchance, a sweetheart, we leave the recital to much abler lips than ours. Having thus eliminated most of the things which form the stock composition of a Class History, We have to seek something else to justify our title. We are barred from saying, " We were bright green when we entered the Academy. During T907-8 we spent an uneventful Plebe year." CUneventful being the proper word to use when you don't want to elaborate on the different kinds of fool that studies and upperclassmen made of you.j Instead of this catalogue form we will try our hand at emotions, and fear that you will find them as true of 1892 or 1922 as 1911. As the horrors of our Plebe year have once been pictured, we will deal lightly with then1, simply noting how a year will change one's view-point. Many an uppcrclassinan told us last year that " we were the ratiest bunch of plehes he had ever seen," though we rejected the thought in scorn in those councils of the elect into which a class naturally divides itself from its entrance to the Academy. But now, from the dignity acquired with a diagonal gold stripe, we sagely shake our heads and admit the soft impeachment, then in justifi- cation we compare our Plebe year with that of IQI2, and our contemporaries suffer horribly in the arraignment. 248 1'lQl,C your has 101, mgmy srn'C spots in it lo look l1:u'lc on with pl:-:Lsurv us yct, :md so wc g1'1':l,tvfL1lly !l,C't'U1NllllLlL' tlu- rccollvctious of :x Yo11112'Sll'l' YUM' lo Ulllllumlc llwm' Nat' urully UllOllQ'll thc vruiso is tlut ffcin li tlu- t'oll:'t'lion.

Dressed in fashion- 'di ' Q f able "cits" and carrying fat dress-suit cases, they looked like typical W' 3 I rah-rah boysfs but no one in Annapolis was deceived by their appear- ' Xb I ance. Those bright young men who walked so proudly were successful candidates, the vanguard of the new Fourth Class, 1912. Most of them were already vain possessors of calling-cards conveying the in formation: " So and So, lVlidship- man, United States Navy," many knew the meaning of theiterms "bone," "drag," and "bust," a few had even heard of a place called VVest Point' otherwise they were wofully ignorant. They even failed to see the letters of fire over the main gate- -for l-lasell Dick says they are there couched in the same warning that the Divine Foet read over a certain entrance, "All hope abandon! Ye who enter here!" Blissfully they steered their ratey course through the grounds, along Lovers' Lane, to Bancroft llall. And Mr. Zimmermann's band played, "Thursday is My .lonah Day." Thus arrived the first members of this mighty class. lt was the matter of only a few days before they were stripped of their callow glory and decked in strictly fresh work-suits, robbed of all their candidate dignity and humbled to the lowly condition of Plebes. They were quickly divided into four companies, a noble battalion commanded by lvltlflfllll Quinn. The three-stripers were " l'at" Regan, 't f,i'l Marse" Dick, Frank Green, and Tracht. Drills were begun. Though these took the greater part of the time, through the influence of "Bill" a fair portion of each day was given over to athletics. An in tercompany baseball series was played, resulting in victory for the first eompany's team, composed of such stars as Dill, 'A Dutch," and Regan, a series of eliminating matches in tennis was won by Fulton and Byrd, representing the second company, the track meet went to the third, and the greatest even t of all, the cutter race, was won by the gallant crew of the fighting second. ' When at last the Academic year began, the Flebes, though not a little frightened by the sight of so many stripes, as well as by the kindly in terrogations of upper class 'A Froggies" and "Spudses" and " Romeos," braced up, looked submissive, and set.tled down to work. Quickly the new Fourth Class began to make itself known. Dalton and Sowell won N's in football, Kieffer made good on the gymnasium team, the l'lebe football team had a success- ful season, the l'lebe five won the class basketball championship, Wenzell easily won a place on the Navy hve, in track athletics, crew and baseball we hope to do equally as well. ln scholarship, too, IQIQ more than held her own. Saunders early showed his supremacy in this line, and throughout the year stood first with a wide margin. 254 nl' an otl'ic'ci', acc'ur:u'y3" Rcjqaii. who mamlc his reputation hy his marks in Acnrlcinit' s Su thvlt, thu Class ot' Itjl2 wishvs to clcclarc itsvlt' pruncl ol' its Plulw Vcar i'cc'u1'tl Gunlt-rl into Naval Aczitlmiiy lilo hy tht- tllass ul' 1909. antl taught hy thvm thc low' for tht Yavy ancl for Navy institutions. thc- lllt-hus have tlonv thuir hust antl shall contimit- to ilu so whvn thcy arc Plchcs no lcmgcr. ,, . , , . .. .. lhc history ut thc t-lass woulcl not hc t-cmiplvtc without sums muntion ol inchviclual int-mhcrs who havc-, in ont- way or anotlivr, tlistinguisht-il tlicinsvlvvs. A grt-at writcr l think it must havu ht-cn ll.

Then it was that in all corners of the Union, in Maine and California, in Florida and Nlfashington, we heard the call of the sea, and hastened to Father Neptune's kindergarten. There the great leavener, uniform, caught us in its toils, and we were no longer city swells or country bumpkins, but all Plebes of the Naval Academy. Then Plebe summer! Who of us cannot now bring back to fond CFD recollection the picture of that fresh working suit newly stcneiled, white .hat and black necktie, with the delicious scent that clung around the whole? 'With the thirty-two sea-going knots, the manual of arms, and the manipulation of a twelve-foot oar, we strove mightily. It was Hdrill, ye tarriers, drill!" and from armory to boat-house, boat-house to cutters, cutters to gymnasium, we were hurried, with never a pause. Few of us have forgotten the week's apprentice cruise on the Boxer, the races from the lighthouse in, the pools we left under our tired. backs on the old gym floor, tl1e first impressions of a Navy Ucussin' out" as we clung timidly in the slings of the yards on the dummy mast, or the four-hour infantry drill on Friday mornings. Life was not all drill, though, and many a pleasant hour wc 1 ll spent, in blissful , ignorance of the 'i Plebe days to come, i A sailing, playing tennis and baseball, and .' l l! ., - swapping yarns of the past and dreams of the future. Soon September was upon us, and we laid aside our ill-befitting spirit of independence to . take UP the more BANCROFI' HALL 257 f ' fr seemly, for Plebes, manners of humility. VVe did due reverence to the mighty upper elassmen, who, through some error of the administration selves-had been refused their September leave. just as we were making ready for the dreaded Academic year, an epidemic of diphtheria broke out in our midst, and we spent two dreary weeks M V-'- after due process of a triple-distilled fumi- gation---on the Hartford and the Newark, making al'1ebe cruise at anchor. The upper classes were granted two weeks' extension of leave, which favor on our part was not, however, duly appreciated by them. At last the summer was over, and, two hundred and forty-seven strong, we were ready to plunge into the work of the year. T hc expected arrived in due course-the Academic year opened, and the instructors in the section rooms and all the three upper classes in Bancroft Hall descended in wrath on the innocent Plebes. Bening was the only way to keep out of trouble in both directions, and stick to our rooms and bone we did. The time l passed rapidly, and soon the days we reported aa at dinner "to the game, sir," dwindled to none, i FRESH WORKING SU,-1-S and we took the long, tiresome trip to Princeton and back. But that trip was well worth while, for 'down in the dark, on the wet, slippery field, we saw West l'oint's six tied with another six, and the chain of the Army victories interrupted, not to be renewed for three years. Hardly had we stopped talking of the game when, as sudden as -the eruption ofa volcano. the hazing upheaval was upon us. Courts-martial and Boards of Investigation began their inquisitions, and few of us there were who were not witnesses, unwilling though we were, against upper elassmen before one or the other tribunal. At the time we were honestly sorry to see the old order of things reversed, though now we can appreciate more clearly ak PLEBE CUTTER DRILL 259 , -they were far too mighty to have erred them- SAY AH! AH! AH! AH! thc evils of hazing, and what the press referred to as "the code." We were deeply grieved that we should be forced, on oath, to bring punishment and, in some eases, dis- missal, upon the members of the upper classes, even upon those whom we personally most liked and admired. The storm passed on, and academic life, though shaken to the foundations, began to adapt itself to the new order of things. Though no longer subject to hazing, we were still Plebes, the lowest class, and we are glad to be able to say that, despite the natural reaction due to our new status as regards hazing, there were no "ratey" attempts to assert, in any way, our independence. In looking back, with maturer vision, on the whole affair, we cannot but be glad that our class was instrumental in instituting the new regime at the Naval Academy Cthough we are grieved that the onus of bringing trouble to the then upper classes should fall upon usj. However, it was not of our doing or intention, and we realize the benefits, both to the Academy and the Service, of the change in the order of things. ' The semi-anns came and went and we lost many of our best fellows. Such as had weathered the gale got down to work again and soon, almost before we knew it, spring was upon us. The crew, the track team, and the baseball team claimed its devotees, while the rest dreamed idly of Youngster days to come. June week, with all the glamour of cere- monial parades, the business- like activity of drills, the lure of the sparking, iridesccnt lines of femininity, the excitement of the West Point baseball game-lost, alas !--brought us to that happy culmination- Youngsterhood! ' Full of hope and antici- pation we embarked on a sea-going squadron for the cruise, bound for Madeira and the Azores. Hardly, however, had we passed the Capes when we ran into the wind-up of a tropical hurricane, and it was not long before we had lost, A SAILING PARTY 260 y not only hope and anticipation, but all else we Con- tained. For five miserable days the ships leaped ,up into heaven and wallowed in the depths of the sea. climbed slowly up mountainous masses of water and plunged dizzily down their slopes, rolled care- lessly onto their beam ends and straightened up with sudden lurehes. Meanwhile we poor land- lubbers, clinging in utter misery to the rail, begged high heaven to deliver ns from our woes, even if by a bolt from the sky. Eventually, though, we ran out of the storm, and after ten days' sailing over a beau- tiful summer sea, picked up the towering heights of Madeira on the horizon. The little fragment of the CROSS-COUNTRY WALK FIENDS Old World was very strange and eurious to the visitors from the Occident, and we spent five delight- ful days roaming about,"exploring'l the town and the mountain side, riding up on the trainway, coasting down in the wicker ehairs with shouting guides elinging to the runners, feasting at Reid's Hotel THE CE'-EBRATED HUZZWA5 and the Monte Palace. The whole island was beautiful, and it seemed as though it, and not another region, must surely have been the garden of Eden. From Madeira we sailed through a wonderful, still, calm sea, to the Azores, and stopped to coal at Fayal. Though quaint after a fashion, this was not nearly so impressive or interesting as - Funehal, its only feature of note, Mount Pico, rising 7,ooo feet sheer from the oeeang , AA., - and we were very glad when we weighed anchor and turned back homeward- toward the Maine coast. At the end of the trip, however, we were held up four days WEEKLY FOOTBALL GAMES by a cold fog, when the 26l 1319-I A ' -1 I: U I discomforts of the weather were further increased by the failure of all stores except hardtack and "salt horsenge delicious as a steady diet! At last we made Bar'Harbor, only to leave again, after a few days, to rejoin our stay-at- home brothers on the Newark and the monitors at New London. Time passed. quickly and pleasantly at New London and Gardinefs Bay, and it BEGINNING OF SECOND CLASS SUMMER ' was not long before we were back at Annapolis for our first September A T leave. Then it was that we shook the dust of the Academy from our feet and departed into the length and breadth of the land. The word "home" had never meant so much to us before, and we lived for thirty- five delightful days. But all good things are ovcr far too quickly, and we all met again in Crabtown for thc Academic year. We were Youngsters now, and no longer the non-ratey class, but such of us as gave free rein to emotion therefor soon discovered that the iron hand of the Discipline Department extended even so far as the Third Class, and THE OLD TENNB COURTS we quieted down to our proper stratum. The fall drifted by eventlessly, save for the football games that every week renewed our belief that we had a team which could beat the Army. Then, came the great day, and we returned from Franklin lrield in triumph, 2 chanting the score, Navy, I-2-3-4-S-6-7-8-Q-IO, Army, o. West Point was beaten, the long string of Army victories, interrupted by the tie ofthe year before, was broken l The game over, the early winter 5 I months passed quickly by, though saddened by thc death of one of the noblest and best of our class, Dayton, and we found ourselves at the FOOLISH YOUNGSTERS 264 semi-anns. Thanks to the rule of those having a 3.0 being exempt from the examinations, in s ti tu t ed during our Plebe spring, these semi-anns were less 'N trouble to niost of us than I I I N before, and they were soon over for all. Vlfe lost several - - - - line men by the wayside, however, and we were ex- - I I - Ceedingly sorry to see them ' H """" fall out. The exams over, the second term sped by like the wind and, almost before we were aware of it, another blune week had come. For som e time A PICTURE OF THE SECOND CLASS WILI. BE TAKEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER DINNER there had been a rumor that the Second Class would not make the summer eruise and, unlike most rumors, it proved true, for we watched the new First and Third Classes gather together their worldly goods, carefully stowed in bulging laundry bags, and "go down to the sea in ships" from the safe vantage-point of Bancroft Hall. Halt of us remained here for two months while the rest followed religiously Mrs. Mac- beth's adviee to 'fstay not upon the order of your going, but go at once." Those who thus departed found that Seeond Class leave was not a whit worse, in fact even better, than Youngster leave, and all scrupulously and earefully extracted from every precious minute of those wonderful two months the last luscious atom of enjoyment. For those who stayed, life was far from. unendurable. ,lnlinite liberty and the sense of being the Senior Class present, put happy smiles on our eountenances and songs on our lips. Acting as junior officers, under the kind and considerate treatment of Bull Reeves, we earn estly at- tempted to lead the Plebes in the straight and narrow path of Naval diseipline. A few of us made' the cruise on the Severn and acquired eic- perienee which will, doubtless, be of much use to us later in the Serviee. Soon August gd came round and the two sections of the Class exehanged plaeess AII- one returning from, the other going on leave. We were deeply shocked to learn that our dearest and most eompanionable friend and classmate, Leaphart, had THE FIFTH Comp, BONES MECHANIC 265 died on leave, from an injury received at the Academy. Those who went on leave dis- covered that the two months' wait had only sweetened the pleasures of freedom, and so great and so lasting were those pleasures that it was only by force that we were eventually torn away, to return for the Academic year. Meanwhile we at the Academy were put- I ting the finishing touches to the preliminary education of the Plebes, and picking up many new and strange things in the Steam Departmcnt's instruction periods. It took a few days to wear off the grouch caused by the prospect of ten unbroken months of work, EMBARKATION. FIRST CLASS CRUISE but we were soon as busy and contented as ever. At the end of the summer we all met in the New Willard for the great feast of the course. Surely Zeus and all the Olympian council never fared so well nor quaffed so merrily as did we. From the class march to the Star-Spangled Banner fled by Kellyj, from the first toast to the last glass, from beginning to end, we ate, drank, and were merry- happy in the perfect union of friendship. The next day wc plodded wearily back to the old stamping grounds, ready for the much-heralded grind of Second Class year. We found too much had not been said about it, and many a midnight candle was burned before the shrine of Tecumseh, with the votary pouring over Mechanics or johnny Gow. With six examinations a month there was hardly time to breathe between, and under the constant pressure of hard work we had nearly for- gotten the passage of time, when we awoke with a start to discover it the day of the Army game. Again we went forth to Philadelphia, and again we returned with a golden ball, this time with 6-H-o blazoned on it, to hang up in the gym. Only a brief respite to celebrate the victory and again we were back wrestling with moments of inertia and the intricacies of the epicyclic train. The semi-anns passed over our devoted heads and still we slaved on until the spring was upon us, Then we came to life, and everyone, supplied with a comfortable margin by six months of toil, knocked off boning and went in strong for out-door enjoyment.

CLEAN SLEEVERS The athletic season was wonderfully successfulg the baseball team won ninety per cent. of its games, and was ranked by most authorities the second best in the country, the crew did good, strong work, the track team won all its meets, and the riHe team shot in splendid form. The grand climax of the whole season was the defeat of West Point by io --5 in the Army-Navy baseball game. After the strenuous drills and fussing of june Weelt, after a long look at the glittering figures of the r9o8 Class German, after the june Ball was over, we embarked on the Olympia, Chicago and the monitors for the summer cruise. The log of the cruise is given elsewhereg so sullice it to state that among all the periods of our Academic career, we can find none which brought us so 1nuch keen enjoyment and pleasure. Old Point, New London, New- port, B o s to n , Portsmouth and Bath, all received us with welcoming hand and unstinted hospitality, and all of us will long remember the good times and the "big liberties" of that eventful cruise. Another leave was here, and we lost no time in weigh- ing anchor for home. For thirty days we lived life as it should be lived, spread rich carmine paint over these United States, broke a few 11-IE FIRST FLOOR hearts, and gladdened manyg 269 THE Bl-CENTENNIAL PARADE and then returned to begin the last lap of our four-year Marathon. Stripes and buzzards were waiting for us, and a fcw clean sleeves. With mutual congratulations, for everyone seemed to get more than he expected, and none were glum, we donned them only to dis- cover that more responsibility and fewer privileges went with them than we had thought. We took up the work of the year' and, after loafing through the first month under the impression that First Class year would be easy, awoke to find ourselves unsat for the month. Then a large braee became apparent, and the noise of boning was heard in the land, like unto that during Second Class year. A third time we journeyed to 'Philadel- phia, but returned in disappointment, for 64-4 spelt our defeat. The semi-anns passed by and we all were safe. Now as the spring with its mild, balmy, delicious days brings us thoughts of the past and dreams of the future, as we think of the parting of our ways, so soon to come, it is with not unmixed feelings that we look to our approaching graduation. We rejoice at a task welldone, at the fruition of four years' work, but we grieve that our class, which is now closer knitted together by ties of fellowship and friendly love than ever before, must soon be jseattered to the four winds of heaven. Wherever we be, however time may change the things of the present, let us always abide in our faith that " No matter whatever befall, old class, You never forgotten will beg We will always be true to the old Navy blue, And to thee, old class, and to thee." 270 THE FRUITION OF FOUR YEARS' WORK itinerary of 31-lFliiJsIJipmzn's ibrartire bquahrun Bfmunnurr, 1511111 1111111 Psrriunl I-IA1v1P'1'oN Rnmns, VA.

Captain Badger granted a day of grace to the imprisoned ones, however, and it was a happy crowd who broke out their cits and embarked on the train for 5335 ja, Washington that eventful Friday. The folly of wearing a straw hat after the fifteenth of September was demonstrated at Odenton, when Ping Wilkinson's cherished headgear, beloved by him because of the long association of many summers, met its fate beneath the wheels of the New York express. The men who were returning from leave were already in Washington, and by eight o'clock, when we stormed the doors of Chase's Theatre, we were a reunited class once more. The show was good, and after it we crossed the street to the New Willard. There being no ratlines, we contented ourselves with ascending by means of the elevator to the nth Hoor, where "Phoebe" Carroll, "Pret" Haines, and the rest of the committee were waiting for us with smiling faces. And well might they smile, for when the doors were thrown open and Zimmermann's band struck up the notes of the Class March, we swarmed into the finest looking room that a class had ever entered for its banquet. The lads who had come from two months of boarding in the mess-hall felt almost faint at the sight of the snowy linen, the silver and the glasses, and even the boys who had left "her" a day early for this event vouchsafed a smile and forgot their sorrows. We found our places marked with the hop books which have been so useful since, and the fight was on. A far-seeing committee had the toasts come early, and we drank to the Class, the girls we had left behind, the Bilgers, and other excuses. Course followed course, and things might have ended quietly had not the band struck up that air ever dear to the heart of a midshipman, "There's One More River to Cross." 272 Ea 5 , A .,..

We crept to bed with the lirst gray streaks of dawn, a very tired but a very happy bunch, and with the memory of a night which we shall never forgot. TOASTS. R. H. IDAVIS, Oregon, Tmwtnfzizsler.

S. S. Boxer, be not taken into account. The "Diphtheria Cruise," made at anchor on the good ships Hartford, Severn and Newark, we regard being of a frivolous nature and unworthy of more than a mere mention among our later adventures. ' By a special dispensation of Providence and the Navy Department, our first true glimpse of life on the ocean wave was made on sea- going ships and with sea-going oilieers. We made none of the usual stops in Chesapeake Bay, and after leaving the Capes stood straight' out to sea, struck a storm of the ringtailed-snorter variety, and manned the lee rail in the manner customary among youngsters. For eleven days we were out of sight of land, and were glad indeed when at last we saw Madeira rising, mountain-like, out "ffl- of the sea. Former LUCKY BAGS have described the dark-eyed maidens of Funchal, the wonderful tints of the Madeira wine, and the many-colored houses of Horta. lWc slid down the sides of the mountain in wicker sledges and sailed our cutter races in the shades of Pico's mighty top. Forgetful of the long trip back, we thought the sailor's life the life for us indeed. The cruise across to Bar Harbor was madeimemor- able by a five-days' fog, but when we Hnally did reach the Atlantic coast after living on salt horse and hard- SUNDAY MORNING INSPECTION 274 U Q A A ,mp , Q an ,Lv ,A 6 L , a? tack, and found the whole month's mail which had accu- , , A ,V T mulated, our sorrows were for- . C- gotten. The trip down the coast was a perfect one, and those of us who were on the Des Moines had the good fortune to make a visi t to Wasliingtoii and Indian Head with the lirst class. The review of the At- lantic Fleet at Oyster Bay caused us to be put ashore a "UNDER THE sl-IADE or PlCO'S MIGHTY TOP" ' WCCk C-HTIYT in Offlel' that UWC ships might be put in proper trim, but no tears were shed by the Class of Nineteen Nine, impatient for Youngster leave. As usual, the time between the close of the Farewell Ball to Nineteen Eight and reveille on the morning of our First Class cruise was spent in packing the things we had neglected to pack in order to talk to some other fellow's sister dur- ing each available minute. Lovers' Lane wasdoing business very early in the morning, and many and tender were the partings which took place be- fore we shoved oFf from the old sea-wall which has been the scene of so many touching farewclls. . The fleet consisted of the Olympia, the Chicago, the Hartford' thc Nevada and the "THE MANY-coLoREo Housas OF HORTA" Arkansasg and we clamhered up the sides of our respective ships,lined up and drew our station billets and locker keys in the manner which has been customary from time immemorial. Our dreams as to unlim- itcd lockers for the first class were soon dispelled, and the young Farraguts on the Nevada received their first ink- ling as to what was in store for them when Tubby checked up my each man's clothes-bags, sent back for laundry books and . other missing articles. Our raimcnts and luxurious toilet articles properly stowed, we were free to come ashore Saturday night and Sunday for one last, big fussg then, early Monday morning, the old, familiar cry of "All hands up anchor!" turned us out of our ,ls .',f,H5 it '1 -f 276 hainmocks for the actual starting of the eruise. We had been promised a Crab cruise in Chesapeake Bay, and for the first week we surely had it. liven Solomons was a relief, and we tarried at this ancient haunt of summer cruises long enough to stretch our legs a bit before setting out for Norfolk. We steamed on down the bay, eoining to anchor every night, and otherwise leading the life of the deep-sea sailor Q?j. One never-to-lme-forgotten evening, however, the Ardois ol' the Olympia sent the news to the fleet that the base of the cruise had been changed from Newport News to New London, and that we were to proceed up the coast after coaling ship inside the Capes. I " -i' "if X extended to us the privileges of was a much-almpreeiated Courtesy Chamberlain were a slight solaee reminders of the june Ball, and the girls at the Post also opened their hearts to their Navy brothers, and gave us a dance. It was very, very hot, however, and all hands were glad when we were beyond the Capes and headed north. We ran out to sea a couple of hun- dred miles in order that the youngsters might ae- quire their sea legs and that we old salts might get a snilli of a real sea breeze once inore. Routine drills now began in earnest, and we swung ship, worked Nav., stood the deck watches, their club, which VVC thought of the New 'London ol our youngster days, and went about our work with lighter hearts. On down the Bay we sailed until the lookouts picked up the good old Chamberlain, and, alasl they also sighted the eollier Aberenda, which was to become so deai to us all. The next day we eoaled ship. lt was scorching hot and the coal-dust hung in the air in clouds. We worked our best, how- . . ff , ever, and broke all records for the different ships. The A r my ollieers at Fort Monroe were very kind and The hops at the to the fussers as "THE NEXT DAY WE COALED SHIP" 277 ,um l ? X. and in other ways prepared ourselves for the days to come. Percy Northcroft made himself popular with the crew of the Chicago by calling all the an- chor watch to muster as we were steaming along at ten knots' speed, and all of us be- gan to learn that holding down the bridge of a man-of-war in formation was not as easy as it had looked when we were signal boys. Benny showed us ROUTINE DRILLS BEGAN IN EARNEST what was and what was not- the idea I--and just before we reached New London, Tommy IOHCS qualified as Admiral of the justly famous Prune Navy of the Olympia by eating one hundred and three Pfunes at one sitting. N It was when New London was still a night away, and we were off Block Island some- where, that one of the most exciting incidents of the cruise occurred. A heavy fog dropped down on us about three o'clock in the morning, and the fiagship fired the signal guns for stopping and anchoring the fleet. On the Chicago the signals signifying that the different ships had come to anchor were checked up, and it was noticed that one ship had failed to fire her gun. Suddenly the quartermastcr on watch made ,out the Nevada directly astern and coming for the anchored Chicago. The midshiprnan officer of the deck ran aft with a megaphone and shouted advice over the rail, and the monitor sheercd off juS11 in time 9-Hd disappeared in the direction of the Olympia. Soon Captain Benson's voice could be heard shouting "Back your engines, sir!" and the Professor backed them, passed across the bows of the Chicago and was lost in the fog. We reached New London just in time for the Yale-Harvard crew race, and mingled our siren yell with the cheers of W i ww- '-'- r both collegesg then we put away our whites, broke out our blues, and started in to devastate the hearts of the fair ones. The Griswold was the same old Griswold- and New London was the same old New London. Everyone was good to us, and 4 the skipper of the Nevada was so pleased at the prospects of a happy summer that two first classmen were allowed to make a liberty. Monday, when the fleet sailed away to that haven of rest, Gardiner's Bay, the Chicago worked up an excuse of broken steering gear, stayed behind and gave teas to the ladies. The weeks were spent in this manner until the last of July -New London for liberty on Fridays, Saturdays and Sun- SHOOTING THE SUN 279 days, and Gariliner's Bay for work the rest, of the week. -- Pi New Lonclon was very hospitable. The Crocker House Grill in the eity itself was as popular with the Red Mikes as the big hotel aeross the Thames was with the fussers. The goocl people in the cottages opened their arms to us--both figuratively and, it is whispered, i literally-f-and the week ends more than made up for it the hot days we had spent in boat drills and sueh in- S , lrl. ,Y,, . x if s an i teresting maneuvers as determining tactical diam- eters and other items of useful information.

Our next stop was at Newport am1.1'anwSimm, and the ships went up to Bradford and coated in succes- sion.

The beauti- ful trip up the river itself was punctuated with salutes from the shot-guns ofthe native peasantry, and the many little craft that scudded along beside us gave promise of the good times we were to enjoy The Squadron Commander gave us special liberty, and for five days and the greater part of five nights we were splen- didly entertained. We listened to the bands, watched the bal- especially popular, where Dixon always showed the ladies the standard compass. Once more the relentless hand of Fate tore us from our new-made friends, and we sailed for Ports- mouth, an unknown quantity. We were treated roy- ally, however, the officers of the ships and of the Yard giving us a ball, while the Hotel Champernowne, on the Kittery side, was more than hospitable. News reached us here of the big preparations that had been made for us at Bath, and at four o'clock one morning we steamed northward. The first manifestation of the Annual Old Home Week and Merchants' Carnival of Bath was presented to us in the shape of a small steamer with a decided out beyond the mouth of the Kennebec to greet us with "THE INNERMOST THOUGHTS OF THE WHITEHEAD TORPEDO" loon asccnsions, saw the wonderful slide for life of Professor Bonnette, went to the balls N X, "SHE HASN'T DIPPED YET" given for usp and last, but far from being least, enjoyed the famous hospitality of the Elks Club. We ourselves helped to make a Roman holiday by taking part, along with the fire department, the "emblematic and historical Heats" and other interesting things in the Grand Military Parade. The Bath girls were all that Nineteen Eight had claimed for them, and men who in all their lives before had never been known to fuss forgot the stern mandates of their respec- tive executive ollicers, and re- turned to their ships long after 283 l 1 i the final muster of the liberty 1 party. Kid Gillette's operatic episode on the dock with a famous member of the Nav. ,tl A4 Department is worthy of men- tion, and the final reception and ball to the ofhcers and midshipmen was an affair we shall long remember. Amidst the pleasures of Bath we had almost forgotten the proximity of leave, but with our prows finally turned southward, the thought of reaching Crabtown became uppermost in each man's mind. The trip down the coast was an ideal one, and gave us the longest run, without a stop, of the whole cruise. The old Hartford, usually the laggard of the fleet, took advantage of the favor- FORE RIVER SHIPYARDS B ing wind, spread her sails, and showed that she was P not ready for the scrap heap yet by frolicking along ' ahead of the other shi bs. The Arkansas and Nevada l were unable to keep up the pace, and dropped far enough behind to allow us to do some very pretty Searchlight signaling. The lights which mark the Capes were eagerly looked for, and one "misty, moisty morning" we steamed past them and were r -- back in old Chesapeake Bay again. The two days' stop at New- port News was made pleasant mainly through the kindness of the Norfolk maidens. The ever-hun gry coal bunkers of OBSTACLE RACE ON THE ARKANSAS the monitors were again clamoring to be filled, but we remembered that i " Every cloud has a silver lining, Every summer cruise its cnd,"' and worked our best. Chesapeake Bay had a little final rain and fog s - in store for us, with a squall or two to add to the WHICH I5 WHICH, 284 CRABTOWN LIGHTHOUSE FINALLY APPEARED Taken all in all, the cruise was a pleasant one, and here are the thanks of the class to the officers who made it so. At times hardships abounded, but one long shore liberty would banish the worst ease of "blues" The welcomes we reeeived-the way in which utter strangers made us feel entirely at home, all the way from Norfolk to Bath--will al- ways be cherished in our mem- ories.

K' 'ff Tiff Of the many branches of athletics engaged in by the midship men, there is no one sport in which greater interest is taken than in football. To the success in this game is largely due the repu- tation and high standing of the Naval Academy among the big colleges of the East. The football season of 1908 has not only upheld the Academy's standing but has added to her reputation. This has been accomplished by a schedule of twelve games-a schedule that, according to a noted football critic, "was the longest and severest of any Eastern college." As usual, the squad came back a week before the opening of the academic year in order to get into shape for our first game, October 3rd. Thirty-five men returned, of these, ten men were players of the former season. DeMott, one of the star ends of 1907, was prevented from returning because of illness. His absence was a serious loss felt throughout the year, and the development ofa new end was one of the problems that faced the coaches. With the return of the squad came Jack Cates, a coach known to every Navy man for his unquestioned ability in making a team. The stall of coaches, of seven men, was ably headed by Lieutenant Berrien, an ollicer who at once commands the respect and admira- tion of every member of the squad. Page, of Yale, was field coach, assisted by McNair, Howard, Douglas and Dague, all football BlRD'S-EYE VIEW OF FIELD ' 293 x Y x 4 -x . x FOOTBALL SQUAD- I 908 s1111's 111' 1111'111111' s1:11s1111s, w11i1c S11111.1.'y M1'1V111s1.111's 11111111111 1111111' 1.11c 111'lL111111Q 111111. 1,1'1J1'.

This was the longest Held goal kicked at any college during the season. ig .1 V I M At this time Harvard Z If 35 X -, I was reckoned as the coming team of the East. Already some experts put her at the head of the list. Our team knew the game with her would be a struggle from the referce's whistle until time was called, and every man went into the game full of that determina- tion, born only of Navy spirit, HITTING THE LINE FOR SEVEN YARDS I to humble the Crimson colors. I Soon after the kick-otl, Dalton made a beautiful sixty-live-yard puntg Harvard returned the kick to Lange, who ran it back for a gaing then by means of a cleverly executed forward pass, Reifsnider, dodging Harvard's backs, carried the ball back of her goal. Northcroft sent the ball between the posts, while from the Navy stand came the most spirited touchdown A i yell heard on the field this 'A' season. The rest of the half was characterized by the long punts of both teams. Har- vard had been unable to gain through the Navy's line, and ends. At the beginning of the second half the score stood 6 HOLDING THE INDIANS to o. Defeat loomed up big for the Crimson. A few min- utes afterwards Lange sig- nalled Richardson to carry the ball through centerg there a trick by which Harvard scored 'V' , "W . .I 1 I in other games took place, and it .II A ha I I '- Nourse, after a quick run, made a touchdown. The Sem-C was now a tie, but such a streak of luck only served to put new strength into the Navy. The remainder of the game was a series of slashing PUSHING IT OVER 297 only twice did they make any substantial gains around our onslaughts through Harvard's line, - and when time was called the ball gl,-. . 1 ,H , was within a few yards of her goal. ' 1 Our iirstdefeat came with the 'f Indians. Though unable to cross our goal line, Carlisle's quarterback won the game by kicking four goals from placement. 16 to 6 seems a decisive defeat, yet it should be noted that the Indians did not carry .the ball across, while the Navy team ran back kicks better, played more consistently, and gained more ground than the Redskins. How well our team profited by the lesson learned from Balenti's kicking may be noted in the four goals from placement kicked in the Villanova A 1 ... A LINE PLAY game and the one in the game With'V. P. I. Throughout the entire season Captain Northcroft played a brilliant game. His tackling was sure and hardg the opposing teams found him a stone. wall, while his place kicks were something remarkable. Lange was undoubtedly the best quarterback seen on the Navy field in late years. Not only was his generalship never at fault, but his phenomenal returns of punts 5,5 furnished material for the headlines of sporting editors. Wright, Leigh- ton, and Stuart played their posi- tions in such a manner that no holes were found near them. Robertson showed up in the Harvfard game, but was prevented by injuries from completing the season. Slingluff Center Passcd A GOAL FROM PLACEMENT the ball well, and often broke through and made tackles that called forth cheers from the bleachers. At the first of the season jones was in at half, but later on he was put at end. With a forward pass hc was to be counted on for a long gain. As for Reifsnider, Grafton, Nason, Carey, Dalton, Brand, Clay, Richardson, Elmer, King, Cobb, and Reinicke, they have the privilege of upholding the Navy's honor in the season to come, and we feel con- fident that Meyer will lead them to victory. To the hustlers cannot be given too much credit. They furnished the means of turning out a crack team, and at the same time made more than one man work to keep his place. In conclusion, a word must be said of the team's work in general. Maw., The men played their best, and their best was remarkably good football. FITZHUGH GREEN 298 Although we were defeated in the final all-important game, yet the Brigade has only praise for the season's work as a whole. Up to the West Point game the season may be considered a successful one, of which the team, the coaches and the Brigade may well he proud. Mention must also be made of the spirit shown by the Brigade. At every game they were there to a man, in the 1.eam's every play they put their spirit, and whenever the ball happened to be lost on downs or a fumble made, their four N, or the siren yell, Showed the team that each and every midshipman was back of them.

' With the opening of the second term "All candidates for the baseball squad Armory immediately after drill," and fully a hundred midshipmen, eager to distinguish themselves on the diamond, reported for the first practice. Our old coach, Dave Fultz, who gave us such a splendid team last year, was in commandA"nuf ced." At the very beginning our hopes were high for a successful season, and we were not to be disappointed. The reputation gained by the team this year for came the well-known, call, report for practice in the snappy baseball and the wonderful, record established s---which, by the way, ranked us the second best collegiate team of the country- -will be a spur to future teams. We had nearly every man of last year's team playing in his old position: "Brainy" Bacon, captain of the nine, on second, Harry Stiles on first, "Pop" Gillam at short, and Phil Hambsch behind the bat, while "Eddie" Lange and "Cracky" .Dague were at their old posts in the farm. Ray jones, of last year's squad, caught in several games behind the bat, and was then shifted to center field for the rest of the season. 'A Willie " Wilson was the " rind " in the new 'I material, and did so well on third at his first try- out that he became a fixture there and played like a veteran throughout the season. In the box were the veteran Douglas, who had been out of the game since his plebe year, owing to a game leg, "Al" Van Auken and " Bolivar" Meade. Several of the men hustling to hold down their positions the entire season. About the middle ol' March hard outside practice began on the diamond. Although rain interfered considerably with practice at the start of the season, it did not aliect the results of the first ten games. The opening game was played with Gallaudet, and although the fielding was a little slow, the evidences of a strong nine were easily seen. After victory was practically certain, the whole stafi' of pitchers was used to give them a try-out. The game,ended in a I rig victory. Next came a hotly contested game with the St. john's Cadets, resulting in a 7-I victory for the Blue. Following this we won the Cornell game, 4-3. "Al " did the pitching for the Navy and Goodwillie for the visitors. It was a hard-fought contest, with no let up in the series of brilliant plays and safe hits until the last man, Heilman, the Cornell captain, was fanned 302 HARRIS Mzxnuxlcr with two men on bases in the ninth. A remarkable feature of this game was that no errors were recorded for either side. It was a pretty exhibition of clean, snappy baseball. Maryland Agricultural College took home a 3-2 defeat. Another victory was added to the unbroken chain when Amherst was defeated, 6-5. It was a tie tothe ninth, with honors about even on both sides, when " Harry the Slugger"with his big stick planted a neat one into left center, scoring Gillam and winning the game. Three more well-earned victories followed. St. john's pocketed 217'-5 defeat. Bucknell was barely defeated by a 1-o score, only three hits being made in the game. Hambsch was the hero in the Lehigh game, with a home run, a triple and a single to his NOW A??E?1E2ghTs CREW credit. The game ended Io-8. Then followed a A series of games with Harvard, to whom the Navy team had extended the privilege of their diamond for spring training. The first tWO Were practice games, but, nevertheless, good exhibitions of baseball. In the first scheduled game we suffered. our first defeat after eight consecutive victories, going down before the Crimson in a 7--o contest. Hicks, the Harvard twirler, was too much for the Navy batsmen, allowing us but one hit. In the second game, however, we were back in our old form, and Won 5-3. " Doug" was on the rubber for us, and was fully equal to the occasion. The next game, with the University of Pennsylvania, was probably the best of the season. No scores were tallied up to the eighth, though the game abounded in brilliant plays that won the applause of the spectators. Gillam stopped a beauty with one hand in the sixth, recovered and threw Spring out on first, and again, in the eighth, Pautxis, of Pennsylvania, made an equally brilliant stop in time to head off Gillam. In the eighth Wilson's finely executed bunt and Hambsch's and Bacon's good base running brought in the only two runs of the game. The play which won the game was an exhibition of team play in batting and base running seldom equaled in amateur contests. St. John's was defeated again, 7- o. Our second defeat was at the hands of North Carolina in the next game, the Chapel Hill -- boys getting away with it, 6--4. Another game with St. .Iohn's resulted in their fourth defeat by a score of 5-r. George- A town captured the next game in a splendid exhi- bition of baseball, win- ning 3-1. Seven more games followed in quick succession, all resulting in Navy victories. They were: Dickinson, 8-og V. P. I., 11--3, Maryland Athletic Club, 4-3: 303 ' De Lance 'Athletic Club, Io-3, , University of West Virginia, 4-OI 4' Maryland Athletic Club, 4-33 and i 1 "I lfValbrook, 5-2. After a series of such victories, was it any wonder that the team was in prime condition for its battle with the Army, determined to make up for the victory snatched from their hands in the ninth inning of the game the spring before? We regret that rain prevented us crossing bats with Dartmouth, Columbia, Washington and Lee, William and Mary, and A. and M. A more successful season has never been witnessed in the history of the Academy. Out of the twenty- three scheduled games played, including that with the Army, only three were defeats. T oo much cannot be said in eommendation of the work of Dave Fultz, and it was due principally to his energetic work and untiring efforts that the team was able to make such a splendid record. A better captain than "Brainy" would be hard to find, and the nine was back of him to a man. We wish, also, to express our appreciation of Lieutenant Vernou, who supervised the management of the team. The stick work of Harry Stiles and the pitching of "Al" and " Doug" figured prominently throughout the season. But it is needless to give praise to individual members of the team. Every man played his best, and the work of all was excellent. No team has had more loyal support from the entire brigade. Let us hope future Navy teams will equal the record of 1908. 1908 Quartz NAVY OPP. GALLAUDIz'I' . . . II 3 UNIvI:RsI'rY oII NoR'I'II CAROLINA 4 ST. JOIIN'S ............ 7 I ST.

At the call for candidates immediately after the semi-anns, all the old men and an unusually large number of new men turned out. An expert rows so easily that the patient toil necessary to attain perfect form is appreciated only by those intimately acquainted with the subject. No matter how excellent the physique of a man, he cannot succeed as an oars- man without learning to properly end and begin his stroke. At the end of the stroke he must get his oar quickly out of the water, feather it by shooting his hands down and out, and at the same time start his seat going forward by a quick jerk on the straps with sufficient momentum to carry it to the opposite end of the slide. He must then gradually check the rush of the seat so that it is still moving slowly forward at the instant the big drive for the next stroke is started. In this way there is no checking of headway by the sudden stopping of eight men, and the shell slides along between strokes. The facilities for indoor work this spring were much better than ever before. LEIG ' In the swimming tank of the new gym a stationary Cam-SN barge, large enough for a whole crew, had been fitted 1 with sliding seats, outriggers and special oars, and, 111 addition to this, two complete 1nachi11cs were installed in the gallery. During the six weeks' hard indoor grind, our hopes grew stronger each day. Never had the 'Varsity crew, man for man, looked so promising. It only remained to put the crews on the water, and by ceaseless repetition of the same motions teach the men form,-a quality so essential for a winning crew. But after getting on the water, the fickle goddess of fortune ceased to smile, mis- fortune interfered. Two of the most promising candidates dropped out on 21CCOunt of injuries and studies. One of the veterans, on account of illness, Was kept out of the shell until five days before the first race, Still Others found themselves lacking in the tre- mendous amount of energy required to become a crack oarsman, OUI' l:1I'S'li I'3.CC, 22d, was with Harvard.

THE START-HARVARD RACE the Severn, and a huskier bunch of men one would go far to find. The weather preceding this was bad. It was impossible to put the finishing touches on our crew. However, on the clay of the race, when our crew rowed up to the starting line, they were in magnificent form. On account of a high wind, the crews pulled up the river. From start to finish the race was a battle royal. .First the Navy shell would forge ahead, then, the Harvard shell --Q .suwqanww THE SECOND CREW would take the lead. At the begin- ning of the last half-mile Harvard was leading by a length, but at the quarter-mile the Navy had cut it down to a half-length. At this instant both coxswains called for the last spurt. The 'Navy was seen to be gaining, and panclemonium broke loose among the spectators. But the finish- ing line was too close--the Navy's spurt was late, Harvard won by a quarter-length. Columbia, May 9th, was our next race. We began to make strenuous AT THE MILE.-HARVARD RACE THE FINISH-HARVARD RACE preparations, for Columbia had won from us at Poughkeepsie the year before. Then, too, it was to be a four- cornered race, with both second crews and 'Varsity crews rowing simultane- ously. Prior to the race there was a big shake-up in the 'Varsity crew, and then Navy spirit began to show itself. Our second crew-to the last man-were out for a seat in the first shell, while the iirst crew were pulling like mad to keep their places. The day of the race was again cold and windy, but along toward evening all four shells were towed to the starting line. The start was good, all four crews getting off together. Soon, however, the 'Varsity crews pulled away from the second crews. All down the course Columbia was in the leadjglt seemed that ":u-., ...V ...,. 3-11-A -' . .v- ..

But it was to a good crew that we lostg a month later Syracuse won the four-mile at Poughkeepsie. This was the first crew's last race. For the second and plebe crews there were two more weeks of training 'tl tl for races wi 1 ie BENSON RICHARD GLENDON Arundel Seniors and Manage, Coach Baltimore Polytechnic. Both were outclassed by the Navy crews, our second crew finishing ten lengths ahead of the plebes, who finished two lengths ahead of the Arundel Seniors, who were third. This is the first year we have ever developed a plebe crew. Their showing was excellent and we expect great things from this policy of training for the 'Varsity crew. Our outlook for next year is very promising. We are to have our coach Dick Glendon again: and the first crew has lost but one man, Captain Rockwell, by graduation. 3I0 THE CREW SQUAD-I90S MBS HIIU YBUJS April 22, 1908 May Q, IIIOS Nlily' 2.41 ffifis 'VARSITY 'VARSITY VARH IX' HAIIVAIIII ws.

The interest in track work was general, and a large squad turned out in answer to Captain Burg's call. There proved to be good material in the squad, and this was so developed under Scotty's able training that the Navy won handily in all three of its dual meets. Work was started in the gymnasium in the winter, and by the spring everyone was in good con- dition. The annual Interclass Meet was held early in the season, and while too one-sided, in favor of 1908, for the issue of the meet to be in doubt at any time, there were many very interesting events, such as the contest between Carey and Strother in the 440, and the two-mile struggle between Rankin and Carmichael. The final scores of the classes were: 15908, 545 1909, 183 IQIO, IQI I, 2I. A week later the first dual meet was RoBERTsoN, M. c. , Captain held with johns Hopkins. They proved easy meat for such old stagers Rankin, Emmet and Carey, and were defeated by a score of 69 to 27. Another week and the meet with Columbia was on. We had expected hard work, for the "Morningsiders" have always prided themselves on their track team, and hard work we had,,for two records were equalled and four broken in our efforts to wrest the meet from the Blue and White. Carey and Shafroth were hard pushed to win the roo-yard dash and Anzo-yard, hurdles in 9 4-5 and 16 seconds, respectively. Emmet 3I A CLOSE FINISH -amz-3. won the half-mile by a foot, in the record time of 2 4-5. Carmichael ran a beautiful two- mile, and clipped ro seconds offlthe record. Rankin, in the mile, and llonelson, in the broad jump, and Burg, in the low hurdles, also -set new standards. For a time it looked dangerous for the Navy, hut at the smash of lmroken records, the clouds cleared away and we won by a score of 78 to 39. The last meet of the season was against Swarthmore. The Pennsylvanians fought a good losing tight, but at no time was the result THE. HURDLES in doulmt, and the total showed Navy, 685, Swarthmore, 275. A notahle feature of the event was the shot-putting an d hammer-throwing of Krueger. Swarthmore's captain. Much of the success. of the season is d training and painstaking coaching. His work ue to Mr. lN'lcMasters' careful with the team was appreciated lay everyone, and we wish to extend him our hearty thanks. l. he team. was very much depleted by the graduation of 1908, losing such men as Burg, Rankin, Emmet, and l.eBourg'eois. Tlieprospect at this writing is. however, bright, and we hope the team will not lower the standard set hy that of last year, but will even raise it higher. 1 oo- Yard 2 20-X7Ll.l'fl 440-ivllfil Half-Mile Mile Run Two-Mile CHAPLINE Manager ,w E V li N TS Dash. .

Q9 beasun nf 1909 "' : A 621' 11' 0 Fencing has become more popular at the Academy each year since the Navy Joined the lntercollegiate Fencing Association. , ,Hu Nav has won the cham Jionshio three times, in 140101 0 - , J 9 1907, and the team, although composed of two new men and one veteran, seemed to stand a good chance against the Army's 1 veteran trio which won the championship last year. At the beginning of the season about eighty candidates came .. li A ont, but this squad was too large for the corps of instructors, 1 , it was reduced from time to time until it numbered about , A thirty at the end of the season. The same problem of insufficient tl number of instructors will come up each. year and limit the num- ber of Midshipmen who are able to take lessons in this most E 1 absorbing and active sport. 3 . . After hard work from October u J to .Februar we o Jened V . 1 .Vt-,,,'. . . . 'ftd -t . the season with meets with .Pennsylvania and Yale, both of if 11 which we lost, due to inexperience of the Navy men. We next 'ii I- defeated Columbia and Cornell, but were again defeated by a ' strong trio from the Baltimore Fencing Club. The Baltimore fencers came down on several occasions for informal fencing and helped considerably in rounding the squad into shape. A BRANDT very interesting exhibition meet was held with the New York Turn Verein, in which the use of the foil, sabre, duelling swords and canes were shown in exciting bouts. Another exhibition meet was held with the Captain Philadelphia Pencers Club at the end. of the local season. The anti-climax of the season, however, was the Triangular Meet, in which Navy easily showed her superiority by winning '16 out of 18 bouts, Pennsylvania winning 8 and losing IO, and Princeton winning 3 and losing 15. After the Intercollegiate Meet at NewYork, a tournament is held among the Midshipmen and medals given for the four weapons. ln 1908 Burdick, '08, won the foils and a gold medalg Knauss, '08, second place and a silver medalg Borchardt, '09, third place and a bronze medal. The duelling swords were won by Smith, '08, who received a silver medal. Brandt, '09, won silver medal for first place in tl1e sabres and canes. In reviewing the 1909 season to date, we can regard it as successful, not a little of which success we lay to the competition among the squad for the two places on the team, and to the training table, which made the squad do their best at all times. We wish to particu- larly thank Lieutenant Johnson for his interest and aid in making the season a success, and Professor Morrison for his invaluable aid in giving up his time to afford us experience against left-handed fencers. 3l8 KIRK Manager The Fencing Committee, composed of six ollicers on duty at the Naval Academy, helped to put fencing on a much firmer hasis lillilll it has heretofore enjoyed. Although they were 1U11Cl1 overworked, we have to thank tl1e instructors for their interest and assistance, and especially Sword- master A. -l. Corhesier, whose invaluable experience will always help the Navy teams. On 'l'hu1'sday, lVIZL1'Cll 26, tl1e team left for New York in charge of Lieutenant A. W. johnson, to meet tl1e five otl1er teams taking part in tl1e semi-finals and iinals of tl1e Intercollegiate Meetf The results of the meet were not entirely unexpected considering the respective records of tl1e Army and Navy teams, which easily out- feneed tl1e other collegiate teams. Army won first place witl1 29 bouts, Navy second witl1 21 bouts, Yale tliird VVll1ll I7 bouts, and Massachusetts Tech. fourth, with 9 bouts. The Army was clearly the best team, their fighting' ability overbalancing tl1e NaVy'sslight superiority of form. The team squad was composed of tl1e following, all of whom, except the manager, :fenced in at least one meet: BRANDT, '09, C,'apIu1'11 lilllli, 'o9, Mumigw' Bo1zc1mR1J'1', 'og Fox, '09 M12RR1L1.1 ,IO 3 BRADFORIJ, 'oe LoTHRo1', 'og LARIMER, I1 319 47" ,S ii 3 I ZA xi' VFW K O .4 6, 'S RIFLE TE.-XM-i908 is 3 - ' I A 'HL ?

That year the team won its three matches with National Guard teams, and later in the summer took a winning place in the National Match at Camp Perry, besides winning three of the best individual prizes, viz.: The National Indi- vidual Match, the National Pistol Match, and the Incli- vidual Mili- tary Cham- pionship of the United States. This may well. be considered an enviable rec- ord,cspecially - when com- paring the age and experience of the team with that of the other contestants. Little had been expected of the Midshipmen on account of their youth and inexperience, but this attitude was entirely changed after the match, and the "school boys" henceforth were always counted on. THE RANGE HOUSE. STEPH ENSON Caplain About March Ist, Captain james called for candidates for the team for 1908. Over ninety men responded and indoor practice was immediately started in the gallery, under the supervision of coach Lt. A. P. Fairfield. The prospects were bright for the spring team, as all the members who had been to Camp Perry the year before were on hand. As soon as the weather permitted, the practice was trans- ferred to the Academy range across the Severn. Here the firing was carried on at zoo yards, slow and rapid fireg 3oo yards, slow and rapid fire, and 6oo yards, slow tire. Scores gradually improved so that the team was able to beat the officers of the Maryland National Guard, on May 2d, by a com- fortable margin. 4 A week later the THE lFOURl' "FRlFFs," l907 team from the National Guard of 322 the District of Columbia was also defeated. In the next match, with the National Guardsmen of the 71st New York, the Mid- shipmen lost by only a few points, at the same time losing the VVells trophy, which is com- peted for annually by the Mid- shipmen and the 7ISlL New York.

This match was of special inter- est, since the '08 members of the team did not shoot, and only men who wcrc eligible for the Camp .Perry team participated. Whether or not a team would be sent to Camp Perry depended largely upon the result of this match. The team Won by a good margin and returned to the Academy well satisfied with the match, and very grateful to the Guardsmen for their hospitality. The second shooting season began july 6th, when seventeen Midshipmen were ordered from the practice squadron, at New London, to report to Lieut. THIRTY MINUTES Fairfield for duty in connection with the Naval Academy riHe team. Practice at the Academy range was at once started, customary July Weather prevailing. As a rule the National Match course was shot through every day, consisting of a skir- U mish run, 200 yards, slow and rapid tire, 600, 800 and 1000 yards, slow fire. This was the first time of the year that the long ranges, 800 and 1000 yards, had been iiredg in fact, over half of the members of the squad had never fired them before. After three weeks on the P Academy range the squad left for PACKED FOR CAMP PERRY CSUHP PCYYY- T11C1'0 they Were A 323 quartered in tents, in true Army style. Meals were taken at the clubhouse of the Ohio State Ride Association, where many pleasant evenings were spent in music and dancing. Practice went on steadily for two weeks when the small matches started. The Midshipmen were entered in these matches merely for practice, and although several prizes were won, no special effort was made for that purpose. The last week of August finally came, and with it IN TRUE ARMY STYLE the big event, the National Match. Although this was the second year at Camp Perry for the Miclshipmcn's team, yet less than half of its member ln L., Lieut. ,Fairficld's accurate Hdope' came out of the smoke in sixth, a came one of the most exciting contests in shooting annals. The principals were the Midshipmen and the Massachusetts National Guard. Vlfith a point or two lead, now for Massachusetts, now for the Midshipmen, the struggle was carried on for over two hours, until the entire team had shot- pair by pair. At the finish the Midshipmen stood in seventh place, having lost sixth,-the last winning place--by one point out of over three thousand. There were fifty-one teams entered in the match. s had taken part the year before, and there was, consequently, considerable danger of "b uck fever." Two h u nd red yards was the first stage of the match, and after shooting, slow and rapid fire, at this range, the team was posted in sixteenth place. At 6oo yards and Soo yards a few points were gained, but still a winning place had not been reached. There was one chance left, and that was the skirmish. Many matches have been won or lost at this stage, and here was the opportunity. The team coolly resolved to take advantage of it, and did. With ' and a grim determination to "make goodf' the team winning place. In the iooo-yard stage wlnch followed PRACTICE AT CAMP PERRY -. The individual matches were held on completion of the National Team match. In the National Individual match, a course similar to the National Team match, W. W. Smith, 'o9, took sixth place and a gold medal, and Bradley, ,IO, won a medal with thirty-fifth place. For shooting on the team in the National match the Brown N was awarded to: DAVIS, C.

After the first week in camp twelve members of the squad, with Lieut. Fairfield and some of the officers from the Navy and Marine Corps teams Went down to Fremont for the week-end and dance---at the invitation of Colonel W. C. Hayes. After a delightful trolley ride the charming little town of Fremont was reached, Wlwfc Colonel Hayes was on hand with a number of ears. The speedy ride through Fremont's shady streets soon ended at Spiegel Grove, tlIe old home of President Hayes. Here E Professor and Mrs. Smith welcomed the new arrivals, who, as g soon as "Red" drove up with the baggage, retired to pre- pare for the fray. Immediately after dinner the other guests began to arrive and introductions were soon over. The fair daughters of Ohio soon charmed even the most timid Mid- shipmite, and when the music started all were apparently old friends. The evening passed all too quickly with danc- mg, StI'Oll1ng under the historic old trees, and short dashes .wi around the grounds in the ever-ready cars. All too soon the sweet strains of " Home, Sweet Home" were heard, and the white uniformed men stood at attention as the National dir was played. " Good nights" were said and a most attrac- tive dance was at an end. After the dance a small class supper was held at the "Cottage," in honor of the Navy and Marine Corps teams. This was as Successful, in its way, as the dance, but tlIe hour grew late a last toast was proposed to Ollf' fair charmers, and the guests departed. The next morning was spent in games, drives and walks through the grounds, and, after a most delightful luncheon, a fond farewell was taken of Fremont, not, however, until a last 4 N had been given for Colonel Hayes. 327 ' GYNINASIUM TEAM -I 909 . .

With scarcely an exception. every mid- shipman of the brigade participates more or less in this form of exercise, and with the impetus given by a modernly equipped gymnasium and spacious swimming pool, the en- thusiasm this year has been more than doubled. But while every midshipman can go down to the gym and do a few stunts on the parallel bars or side-horse, few there are who can qualify for the Gym Team. Their'work is not Hslcinning the eat" or "hanging by the toes," but of a much more advaneed nature. It is of a character that calls for constant and daily training, developing strength Combined with grace and suppleness of movement. until the stunts they do are sueh that any amateur could well be proud of. During midwinter of each year the Annual Gymnastic Tournament takes place. There are eight events, viz.: Horizontal Bar, Parallel Bars, Side-Horse, Flying Rings, i ' X Tumbling, Vtlrestling, Boxing and Swimming. The first "A" X five are confined solely to members of the Gym Team. WADDINGTON The Contestants in Swimming are those of the Swimming Cupluln Squad, but for Wrestling and Boxing every company of Before thc H 1 n the brigade is privileged to .enter onehman for eaeh weight. - meet, however, preliminary Contests are held, un til on the night ot the finals there are but two eontestants in eaeh weight. At the tournament the winners of each of the eight events are awarded medals. ,Points are also given, which count in the company competition for the brigade flag. attmlggf 'fjltlogyninastie meet ot the season was that with Columbia. Like all meets, it that niuhttx atge and enthusiastic gathering of spectators. While work ot our team - f Q vas creditable, it was not up to its standard in form and hnish. Notwithstand- mg this, the contest was close. Schoonmalcer, an intercollegiate ehaiiipion. was the star performer for Columbia, capturing 'first on the horizontal bar and parallel bars. On the side-horse the Navy and Columbia tied for first placeg on the flying rings Columbia barely won by a half'-point out of the seventy-two points given for this event. ln tumbling the glcivy was far superior, and easily took first. At the close of thc meet thc score stood umbia, 265 Navy, ie. A 329 THE SWIMMING TEAM-I909 The next meet was with Pennsylvania. The Navy team, determined to uphold the standard of former years, got down to hard work, while they knew that Pennsylvania had defeated Columbia, they believed if they could do their previous training justice, the meet would be the Navy's. And so it was! On the horizontal bar our team took first place, again, on the flying rings we took first, while on the parallel bars we took first and second. In tumbling, Pennsylvania was the well-deserved winner, first on the side-horse also went to her. The meet, as a whole, was quite the best that has ever been seen in Annapolis, and the Navy team can feel justly proud of the score-Pennsylvania, :fog Navy, 25. The Swimming Squad, ably headed by Captain james Madison Doyle, jr., is this year's innovation. As yet they have been unable to secure a meetg their excellent work, though, was shown at the Annual Tournament. Next year great results arc expected in this distinctively Navy sport. 'Ifhe gym instructors, Messrs. Steffen, Lang, and Schultz, produced a Gym Team far superior to those of former years, with the result that the gym season was a decided success. In time to come it is hoped that our tea1n may be allowed to take part in the Intercolle- giate Gymnastic Meets, in which, wc feel confident, it would make a very creditable showing. 33I 1 r L 1 !

' J The interest and enthusiasm that has been aroused here during the past season demonstrates that basketball has attained a well- deserved popularity, and has fulfilled its object in covering the interim between the football and the baseball seasons. By the able coaching of "Billy" Lush, who had for two years successfully coached Yale's five, a good team was developed which has given us a high standing among the leading colleges. At the call for candidates over a hundred responded. .Practice began early in October, and by the construction of four courts in the Armory ample room was provided for all to get a good try-out. 'With the liberal support of the Athletic Associations, Manager Friedell arranged a very creditable schedule. Mr. Foster, of the University of lflennsylvania, was secured as referee. The season opened on December rzth, though not very auspi- ciously for the Navy. Our lirst game was with Pennsylvania, thc intercollegiate champions of the pastlseason. As some of our best material came from the football men, t.here had been only two weeks for " Billy" to round up a team. VVe were defeated by a score of I9 to 43. The second game, December ioth, was with Georgetown, a Ir fiA,',,J strong ag- gregation BUNKLEY who came Captain the expectation of "wiping us out." A surprise awaited them, however, for the spirit of the Brigade had become aroused. The line-up was shifted during the week, Doug- las going to center. The game was snappy on both sides. Captain Rice, of Georgetown, was disqualified in the early part of the second half, but was allowed to continue in the game, although Georgetown was in the lead at the time. The Navy soon forged ahead, and at the end of the second half the score stood: Navy 33, - v-- Gcorgetown 32. WILSON THROWING GOAL 335 The team put in some hard practice during the next week for the Princeton quint, who had defeated both Harvard and Yale. This game proved to be another nip-and-tuck contest, the score swaying first from one side, then to the other. Each team scored the same number of field goals. By netting one more goal from the foul line, however, our team secured the winning point. The game scheduled with Columbia for january 2d was can- celled, owing to a misunderstanding, and a second game with Georgetown was obtained in its place. The game was spirited and doubtful, but ended with Georgetown two points ahead. The Corcoran Cadets, of Washington,were easily defeated bya score of 62 to 8, followed by another easy victory, on January ioth, over the Baltimore City College, score 38-9. The Baltimore quintet was unable to make any headway against our team, though substitutes were put in against them early in the game. The third and decisive game was played with Georgetown on january 2oth, the visitors winning by a score of 26 to 23. This was the most exciting game of the season. The number of fouls called on both sides was very small, making the game faster than LUSH usual. Our team started in with a rush and, early in the first Conch half, looked like winners, having a lead of six points. By some of the cleverest team-work ever seen here, however, Georgetown rapidly overtook us and by the end of the half had gained a lead of six points. Although our team put up a bitter tight in the second half, they were unable to overcome this lead. The hnal score was 23 to 26. During "semi-ann week" the class teams fought for supremacy. Each class played each of the other three classes. Most of the games were close and excit- ing, the First Class losing to both the Second and Fourth Classes by small margins. The championship game was held between the Second and Fourth Classes, resulting in a tie. Five minutes more of play was agreed upon and the Plebes won by one point----final score, 22 to 2 I. Delaware College came down on January 30th, an unknown quan- tity. We had little trouble in trimming them, running up a score of 48 to Q. The showing made by some of the substitutes was particu- larly gratifying, giving much promise of a good team next year, The remainder of the games were all easy victories for the Navy, the play being too one-sided in most of them to even afford interest. The season ended on February 22d, with a victory over Fordham. The prospects for the coming season are exceedingly good. With the excellent coaching received this year, a team should be quickly rounded into shape next year. Only three games were lost, two of them by small scores. As it was impossible to secure a game with VVest Point, the past season cannot be called a complete success. Interest in the sport has enormously increased, and all efforts will be made to meet the Army next year. Since there is this possibility, it is hoped that the Brigade will continue to support the game loyally as they have done in the past. FRIEDELL Manager 336 BAs1c12'1'1s1x1.1.

The season was opened on Saturday, April 4lll'l, with a game with Johns Hopkins, the intercollegiate champions for the past three years. The game brought out a large crowd to sec the Navy's novice efforts. But a great surprise awaited the people. The Navy put up a splendid game against the veteran team, time and again astonishing the enthusiastic spectators with their snappy plays, but could succeed in scoring only one goal, the final score being 6 to 1 in favor of Hopkins. On April 23rd the Navy team met the strong Harvard aggregation. The visitors showed a greater knowledge of the game and ability in stick work, but the Middies were equally as fast, keeping the ball in the enemy's territory at least half the time. However, our deficiency in the elements of the stick work enabled Harvard to score a victory. Ford LACROSSE TEAM- l908 338 showed up especially well, scoring our only goal, in the early part of the second half. The game ended with Harvard 7, -' 'li' Navy 1. Our team now got down to hard work, and closed the first season at the Academy on April 29th with a victory over the Baltimore City College, by a score of 4 to 2. The Navy team jumped into the game with a vim which fairly carried the City College team off their feet, and soon had two goals chalked up to their credit. The hrst half ended 3-o in Navy's favor. The City College showed up somewhat stronger in the second half, but could succeed in making only two goals. -n , I My Having received a sufficient start last year, under the 'J X I leadership of Captain Welsh this year it is hoped that 1 , . . .

Three years ago four courts were amply sufficient for Q. Us 1 'MFI Y , ' . I JIM' I WILKINSON Captain the needs of the Academy, but last spring fourteen were not enough. With the greater number of players, more rivalry was felt, and the quality of the tennis began to improve. Numerous entries were made in the annual championship tournaments, and many brilliant matches were played. The season of 1907-1908 was especially good for tennis. The mild weather of the fall lasted well into the winter, allowing play on the courts as late as January first. Again, the winter broke early, and the courts were in condition by April first. No attempt was made to form a tennis team or to play outside matches, but the annual tournament, with fifty-seven entries in the singles and twenty in the doubles, was soon started. The general run of the matches was very good, and the winners of the tournament-Van Auken in the singles, and Jordan and Wilmer in the doubles--deserve great credit. 340 15749 Q Q Qihampiunsbip Uliuurnamznt, 1908 Q Q SINGLES Second Round Third Round S0mi-F.nalg Finals Champion Thornton C15-7, 6-45 Q t , -Brit 4-Cf-, - Belt go-s, 7-5, 6-45 S L 9' ' ' 4 7 SQ Meyer Meyer C6-S, 6-3, 6-45 Emmet K6-3, 6-35 Fay C6-4, 7'5Q Capehurt Cby default5 Van Auken Q6-3, 6-I5 Underwood! thy df.-fzLult5 Keep Q6-o, 6-15 Force Qby defztult5 Pmmaek Q6-3, 6-45 Wilkinson Q6-4, 3-6, 6-45 McCauley Q6-3, 6-8, 6-45 Sampson C6-1, 5-7, 6-45 Jordan C6-1, 6-25 Borchardt C7-5, 6-45 Flrsi Round Van Auken and Emmet Q6-2, 6-35 Le Clair and Oldendorf Q6-2, 14-125 Belt and Vunderhoof CS-Io, 6-4, 6-35 Thornton und Allewelt c6'31 Bartlett and Force Tilley and Kelly Kirk and Welsh Jordan and Wilmer Szunpson amd Meyer Paunaek and Wilkinson Capehart and Gray Perley and Glennon Trippe and Fay Bustedo and Stark Underwood :md Lucas Haines und Butler Q- Meyer Q6-1, 6-45 f6'313'616'3Q Q Van Auken l7'51 3-61 6-3 Q- Fay Q6-2, 6-45 5'7' 64, Q Van Auken Q C2-6,6-2,6-I5 l Q'VZLI1lxllliC1l C6-2, 6-15 Q- KOCD C4-6, 9-7, 6-25 Q Vlfilkinson Q Q. - .U A - Q6-1, 7-9, 6-25 Q W1llxll1SC,5l1 Q6-3, 8 65 Nvilkinson fO'7v 7'5i 4-6 2- Sampson C6-3, 6-15 Q 6-45 Q 1 Sampson '-1 ' r 6',, Q-jordan C6-o, 6-35 C7 D 5 7 3 ' DOUBLES Second Round Semi-Finals FlH8lS Van Auken and Emmet 5 Q6-2, 6-35 Van Auken " and Emmet - c- ,6- 'Thornton and Allewelt C 1 2 17 Jordqn C6-3' 7'5Q and Wilmer C6-4, 3-6, 7-5 Q Tilley and Kelly 5, 6-45 Q' Q8-6, 6-2, Q Jorcliinwq 7 an 1 mer Q-J0l'flll11 and Wilmer Q Q6-2, 6-45 l C6-2, 6-35 f Q-Puunuek and Wilkinson 'Q Q C3-6, 8-6, 6-4, Q Puunaek end ' 5 Wilkinson l Cflllclmft and Gray 'I f6'I, 6-13 Pzumack and l Q6-4, 6-39 f vviikmson Q Trippe and Fay 5, 664' 6-1, -I in Qby ilCl'!lLllLD Q Underwood und Lucas li Cby delault5 l5T1-ippe and Fay l c6'2v 6'8r Jl 34l Van Auken Jo C6-2, 6-3, 6-8 C6-4, 6-3. 6-IJ Champions rdan and WVilmer 6-O5 P W ' -'--wvnrvv YELLOW N DEBIOTT, BI.

That the almost unbroken successes of the season could not be rounded out by a victory in the final and almost all-important contest is to be regretted. The more is it to be regretted because the fault lay in no inherent weakness in the team, in no deficiency in the coaching and training it received, in no lack of spirit either in the players or in the Brigade, which backed them with unwavering confidence and I5 PHILOON Captain-Army enthusiasm in the hope of victory and in the knowledge of defeat, but in a contingency over which foresight and morale could have no control. The Army team deserves all the credit it may receive for its hard-earned victory. It worked hard and with as much pluck as our men, and may enjoy the fruitsofvietory- a bit sweeter to them, perhaps, than they would have been to us, in the knowledge that they were wrested from as good a team the Navy ever put upon the field..

S'rlcwAR had been passed in running through signals and in kicking, the captains and the little knot , ,LL A of officials gathered for a con- , ference and watched the flip of the coin which should decide the initial advantage. Northcroft won the toss and chose to receive the kick under the west goal, with a slight wind at his back, which soon almost died down, to spring up more strongly in the second half. After :L hasty gathering for final instructions the teams scattered to their NAVY SCORES stations and the refcree's whistle . announced that the battle was on as Dean lifted the ball to Lange on the Navy's fifteen- yard line. Eddie advanced fifteen yards before he was tackled, and immediately called upon Dalton to kick. A long drive to Hyatt was juggled, but the Army recovered the ball on its thirty-yard mark. A smash into the line netted only a short gain, and Greble fell back for a kick Then followed the play which told the story of the game. Greble booted the ball in a short, high punt toward the side of the field. The ball, veered by the wind, looked as if it were going out of bounds. Lange, playing back, made a desperate effort to get it on the run, but it struck just short of him on the forty-yard mark and, taking an ugly bound, twisted over his head as he jumped for it. Chamberlain, the Army fullback, led in the chase down the field from the line of scrimmage, and the bounding ball fell directly into his arms. He was probably as much surprised as anyone, but he hugged the leather tight and continued in his sprint toward the Navy goal with no one before him. But Lange had recovered his footing and rapidly overhauled him in a stern chase, spilling him by a splendid diving tackle with only three yards yet to go. Three yards in three downs looked easy, and the cadets in the South Stand shrieked for a touchdown. The mid- shipmen, not losing nerve for a A JA 4 moment, put heart and soul in a siren yell telling the team to throw back the assault and get the ball. The first desperate plunge yielded only a yard. Another charge, another grind- ing shoek, and the ball was yet a little closer to the final white mark. The Navy players crouched again in an heroic attempt to do what the nature of the game makes almost a physical impossibility, but the third attack saw Dean fall the few remaining inches with the THE KICKOFF P' 349 q.

Dean added another point to the Army's total by kicking the goal., and the teams lined up again for the kickoff, changing sides. Hyatt caught Northeroft's kick on the Army ten-yard mark and made a short gain before he was downed. Then followed an exchange of punts. Greble on a fake kick started for the Navy's left wing, but Northeroft, breaking through, spilled him for no gain. The Army was penalized for holding, and punted under the shadow of its goal-posts. Lange tried the Army line for a gain and then lifted an onside kick, which Hyatt recovered. Greble punted at once, and Lange, catching the ball near midfield, reeled off one of the best runs of the afternoon, dashing twenty-five yards into Army territory before he tripped and fell. A fumble lost the ball on the twenty-eight-yard line, and another punting duel followed, kicks mixed with fakes resulting in little gain. Finally Hyatt fumbled a punt on his thirty-yard mark and Reifsnider pounced on the ball. After a short gain through the line Lange placed an onside kick on the Army ten-yard mark, where an Army back recovered it. The Army kicked again and an exchange followed. Lange caught Greble's next kick about midfield and, in a beautiful dash, advanced the ball thirty-five yards before he was downed. Then began the attack which saw the only consistent ground-gaining ability displayed by either team and which resulted in the Navy score. The Navy backs were sent into the line and around the ends, with Lange, Richardson and Clay bearing the brunt of the work. They smashed. and dodged, gaining on every play down nearly to the Army's goal-posts, where, with four yards to go on the last down, a kick was decided on. Lange fell back to the twenty- yard line and, with a perfect pass, booted a place kick squarely between the bars. Philoon kicked off again for the Army, and the punting duel began anew, neither team making many attempts to gain by rushing tactics. The Navy gained on every exchange until the half ended with the ball in the Army's hands on their thirty-yard mark. Between the halves the rival cheering sections of the two Academies followed the time- honored custom of exhausting their repertoire of songs and cheers, while the mascots were trotted about the field. The Brigade was full of optimism despite the team's unfortunate start, and hoped for a better break of luck in the second half. They knew that the ability was in theteam to outmatch anything the Army had yet shown, and wanted only an oppor- tunity for the offensive play to get well started. Their cheers were given with redoubled vigor and confidence as the teams dashed out from the dressing rooms for the second half. The wind had been rising steadily and a fresh breeze was now blowing toward the Navy goal. It was our turn to kick off, and Northcroft booted the leather to Hyatt on the Army's twenty-eight yard line. The punt which followed almost immediately was one of a long series, interrupted by an occasional fake or trick play, in which the Navy fought hard to get the ball out of their own territory after the wind and a couple of unfortunate fumbles had put it on the Navy side of the field early in the half. The Army played only to save its lead, and kicked at every opportunity. When the play was finally shifted to the other side 35I F- 1 1 -+ J and working gradually toward the Army goal, both teams were nearly spent, and the advance was too slow to yield a score before the whistle blew. Soon after the opening of the half a couple of long kicks by the Army with the wind, and short Navy returns against it, placed the ball on the Navy thirty-yard line. Here the Army team scattered in a line shift formation and Hyatt shot a forward pass down the field, which was grabbed by the Navy players on their ten-yard mark. Another punt, which the wind carried high and short, and the kicking tactics were resumed. With the ball on the forty-yard line, the Army attempted to gain by rushing and then tried an onside kick. Lange scooped the ball on the run and was oil like a Hash for a twenty-yard run through the field. On the next play he made twenty-five yards on a fake kick, carrying the ball to mid- field and changing the whole complexion of things. The Navy now forced the lighting, while the Army struggled to preserve its goal. The kicking game was continued, varied by an occasional attempt to gain by rushing or by trick plays. The best gain made during the latter part of the half was on a forward pass from Lange to Jones on the fifty-yard mark. It was at this stage of the game that Northcroft, who had been showing up strongly through- out the game, did most heroic work, getting through nearly every Army play and smashing the runners repeatedly for little or no gain. jones and Reifsnider, who had been playing a splendid game on sheer nerve in the face of injuries they had before going in, were forced to retire. Substitutions were rapidly made on both sides, but no decided change in the play was apparent on either side. So the game went, with the ball see-sawing back and forth, getting farther and farther into Army territory until l.ange's final punt saw it on the Army's six-yard line as time was called.

Two successive ' victories for the Army on the baseball field were not joyful to contemplate, and the only way for us to even the score was by administering to our old rivals a stinging defeat. To this end the development of our team was directed, and when the final test came, ability was there, determina- vt tion was there, and victory followed. The rather inex- .- perienced team of 1907, now become seasoned to some N extent and remaining practically intact, with the addition ' ' of valuable new material, and with the great coaching of , " Dave" Fultz, knew that it had to make good. And the ,J 5 way it did more than make good not only throughout its BACON season, but in the final game -'-- --Zhc gamef-with the Army, MOUN1-FORD cinpzain no one who followed it needs to be told. Captain The game was set for a later date than usual, and Wecliiesclay of june Week was the day agreed upon. This happy choice not only added an immense attraction to the June Week season but also created an increased interest in the game itself. The day could hardly have been better chosen. Warm, with occasional light breezes, it gave splendid baseball weather. The stands were packed with Army and Navy partisans in banks of gay colors. The brigade, massed as usual in its own stand, broke the variegated display with a solid square of blue, from which came cheer after cheer in an admirably enthusiastic evidence of support and encouragement of the team. The outfield, deeply fringed with onlookers shutting in the playing space, made the setting complete. Sunshine and shadow, in quickly succeeding shifts, changed the colors of the stands from brilliancy to a more subdued gaycty and back again, but never to soberness, for was not this a Navy crowd and a Navy day? that trotted out on the field at the wordg and it It was an eager, expect- ant crowd that applauded when Umpire Riglcr stepped u p o n the field to an- nounce thc bat- teries, a n d, throwing o u t the first ball, calledtheplay g it was a confident, determined N a v y t e a m IT WAS AN EAGER, EXPECTANT CROWD 354 was a tense, loy- al brigade that lifted a mighty cheer Doug- las stepped into the box and his teammates spread out be- hind him. It was ap- parent at the first that, bar- - ring accidents, the Army had no chance to win. Witli Douglas pitch- ing superbly and the team backing him up in grand style, the Army was soon retired in the first inning. The Navy batters connected at once with Hyatt's curves in their half and at once showed their ability to score, registering twice in that session and "many times after." At the end of the second inning the game was no longer in doubt, as our team, hitting Hyatt freely and profiting by the Army's frequent misplays, shoved over eight runs, tucking the game th, while the Army did not score until the fifth, when one run came across. The Navy annexed three more runs in the sixth and the Army added one in their half of thcuseventh. Thus matters stood until THE GAME WAS NO LONGER IN DOUBT away right there. Three more came in the four the final round., when the Navy team, secure in their margin of fourteen runs, eased up, and errors, coupled with a hit and a pass, brought the Army's total up to five. Douglas deserves much credit for his splendid pitching. He was a trifle wild at times, ll d St'l batted strongly throughout but his passes were not costly and were we scattere . '1 cs " 6 thc game and Lange pulled ofi? seine brilliant fielding stunts in the left garden. Hambsch's consistently good backstopping was always a great help. The team, as a whole, hit and ran bases well and also fielded in good style until the ninth inning, when a let-up was apparent. The Army team, throughout their season, had labored under the same handicap from which we had suffered in the previous years-the early graduation of the first class. But, unlike us, they had had a new class from which to recruit, and, indeed, several of their best players were new men. Hyatt pitched a steady, creditable game and, though he was touched for hits rather freely, did not blow up with poor fielding support. He was not responsible for the Army's overwhelming defeat. It was simply another ease of an out- classed team. THE PLAY IN DETAIL.

The next two men, Hyatt and Teague, drew passes, but they died when Gonser failed to connect. No scores. NAVY. The Navy sewed thc game up in this inning, and thenceforward much of its interest was lost, the only question being as to the size of the score. jones took first on his hit, a hard grounder to Harrison. Ilamhseh followed with a simi- lar hit to thc same place, jones pcrching on second. Both scored on Douglas's three-base hit, a hot grounder, which rolled to the crowd in right field. Bacon walked and took second on the next ball pitched.

Gillam had ll1CEl.I1' while reached second, and took third on a passed ball. VVilson drew a pass and stole second on the next ball. Stiles brought in two scores with his two-base hit to left center, going to third on Lange's single to right center, and scoring on Hyatt's wild pitch, on which Lange went to second. Lange romped home on Dague's groundcr, which Hyatt failed to handle cleanly, and llague took second when Meyer let Hyatt's throw go through. jones sacrificed Dague to third, Hyatt getting the assist. lrlambsch laid down a xbunt, and Dague got into a cat chase between third and home, with nearly the whole Army infield taking part, and was finally tagged by Harrison. Ilarnbsch reached third in the excitement, but did not score, as Douglas was thrown out at first by Hyatt. Eight scores. Tmuo INNING-ARMY. Devers took first on a pass, but Mountford's fiy was gathered in by Jones.

Alone, did l say? N03 my best old pipe fl was with me, and the fragrant fumes from its big, cavern-like bowl filled me with a pleasant sense of companion- ship. My idle thoughts were on the life of the past four years. My mood was one of absolute contentment- the air was balmy, graduation was close at hand, the band was playing outside and my tobacco was good. Memories of happy hours came trooping one by one across the field of my imagination. l thought of the fellows and the good times we had had together, of memorable liberties, of after-taps soirc'es, of Philly and of victories.

But the real, real fusser most enyoys the long hours of iw' V. 370 Sunday afternoon. ln this time he has opportunity to whisper sweet nothings in rosy-tinted ears and to round out those delicate complirhents in which he so delights. All this, however, is butgibecondaryi to the hops themselves. Even the " poor plebes in the gallery " enjoy the brilliant spectacle. in-The sparkling lights, entrancing music and beautiful women combined produce a festive air in which ijoy is fcontagious. The call of the dance is resisted by but few, for Mr. Zimmermanis music is of a quality that is well appreciated. However, that the fascination of moonlight promenades is recogniied lneeds no demonstration. There are one or two cozy nooks which may be found without great effort. Foitsexrtmple, that little circular stairway could tell many charming stories should Cupid 'ever endow it with the powerof speech. The hops of First Class fear seem to have been better than those of other years. Perhaps this is because they are fresh in my memory. and perhaps there are other reasons. Youngster hops seem to have been devoted to making acquaintances., and my friend, 2.5, interfered with Second Class hops. But by First Class Year the acquaintances of Youngster year have ripened into friendships, and worries over studies have been forgotten in the near approach of graduation. Realizing that the Academy hops will all too soon be but a memory, each First Classman returns J 'mu from leave determined to fuss at every opportunity. ff A This resolution endures for several months and results 1 5,6 ff in manymeetings with friends of the preceding years. , 4 , That indescribable, happy feeling which thrilled us N X gf ff .X all on New Year's evening as the bugle sounded the K ' ikgxfvy X , fx, -I M clear, ringing notes of reveille for l909-OUR ,' X ' YEAR-will never be forgottensfand the german is Q l X yet to come.

The Naval Academy is a very stony-hearted parent, indeed,and for us it is surely a Case of "beyond the Alps lies sunny ltalyg" and high and lofty are those Alps and the paths which lead across them hoth rocky and tortuous. For all of us, june Week ends the worry of a hard year. The annual examinations are over, and no amount of "post-mortem" worrying can change what we have, or have not, accomplished on them. The days till the cruise or till graduation, as the case may he, have dwindled down to one figure, and that a very small one. The Naval Academy is in gala attire, and even little old Annapolis is looking her very best. For the fusser, and deep down in our hearts we are all fussers, it is a most delightful period, for the Yard is full of girls. For 1nany the "Girl from Home" is ihere to fit into the scenes which have become so familiar to us, and yet to make us rememlmer other scenes hack in the happy times of leave days. The Yard which has grown so displeasing in our sight, and at whose conhning walls we have frowned for the past eight months, looks so well in our eyes that. even the extra liherty does not tempt us past the open gates, and we spend our time roaming around it and explaining to Her its many points of interest. 375 l ,Pl THE BOARD OF VISITORS On Sunday morning the ehaplain preaehes the farewell sermon to the graduating elass, and the serviee, always impres- sive, eloses with that good old hymn, "God he with you till we meet, again" and the tears stand in the eyes of most of the mothers who have eome to see their sons finally wedded to the sea. Sunday afternoon is the last period of rest, for early on IVIonday morning the hrig- ade dons its dress jaekets to THE EDGE5 OF THE FIELD ARI-I LINED WITH PRETTY GIRLS june Week proper Imegins the Sunday lmetore graduation, hut most ot' the girls drift in for the hop the nii-'ht Ime- 3 fore, and a Iew are good enough to eome down as early as the last part ot' "Ann Week" to spend the time in longeanoe trips up the shady Severn, or on sailing parties on Chesapeake Bay.

Severn, the Steam Building and the gun-shed divide the honors with Oklahoma field, and we rush from the smoke of a bloody sham battle to calmer cutter evolutions. Drill follows drill, with only time enough between to let Her see us in our many dillerent uniforms. EXHIBITION SAILING But if the days are stren- uous, the nights at least are all our own. Monday and Tuesday evenings bring promenade concerts. The band, that good old band, plays in Lovers' Lane, and in every corner of the Yard can be found that june WVcck combination, a midshipman and a girl. Many of the old walks and most of the old buildings with convenient doorways and arches are gone, but there are still a few places not made too bright by the electric lights, or otherwise made impossible by modern improvements. The couples wander around until the familiar notes of "The Star-Spangled Banner" give warning that the concert is at an end, and that in an hour each midshipman must be in his small, white bed in Bancroft Hall. On Wednesday, if it is the proper year, comes the Army and Navy baseball game, followed at night by a hop given to our West Point brothers. We resign, temporarily, our fair ones to the other arm of the Service, and try to repay in a measure the kindness shown to our team while at the Point the year before. On Thursday come more drills, and gener- ally the presentation of the colors to the company adjudged to have won them. This is a pretty sight, for the honor is entrusted to a young lady selected by the Cadet Lieutenant of the company, and the girl, as she holds in her arms the Hag wc love, makes a picture which is hard to forget. We give three cheers for "the young lady who presents the colors," and three more for the color com- pany, and march past in the usual review-the last time the First Classmen will have a chance to swing their swords in front of a cadet company. On Thursday night comes that crowning social event in the life of a midshipman----the First Class german. Only First Classmen dance, and the Second Class, who are so soon to take charge of things, are invited to look on from the balconies. No words can describe a ger- man. lt is, perhaps, the most PRESENTATION OF MEDALS elaborate 'thing of its kind in 379 ,ff X "YN .asf B the world, and must be seen to be appreciated.

The german is in the na- ture of a "show-down" for each .ll u PRESENTATION OF THE COLORS 1 member of the elass, however, for the girl who is asked to dance this function with him is the girl who has made the lasting impression in the four years preceding, and it is impossible to pretend otherwise afterwards. And then comes that Friday, the most important day in our lives! Whoever was it, I wonder, who started that absurd story about Friday being unlucky? About Wednesday noon the order has been published telling us all about it-where our "parents and friends" are to sit, and how they must "remain standing until after the departure of the Secretary of the Navy." How the "band will play the pieces customarily played at graduation, and the graduates will be permitted to mingle with their friends." We have had to listen to this order for three years when it concerned us not, but now, at last, our time has come. TYe line up on the terrace in one big company, the five-striper in charge, the brigade commanded by its new officers has already marched to the Armory. NVe count off, swing into squads, and march away. The Armory is crowded. As we swing past the brigade, their rifies held toward us, we catch a glimpse of the crowded balconies, and perhaps Her smiling eyes. V Wie wheel into line, fall out, and take our chairs. The Superintendent rises, tells us how well we have done our duty, and introduces to us the man we have waited four years to meet - the Secretary of the Navy. life speaks to us, talking very ' slowly, though we are waiting -very impatiently, but finally the aide advances with the little cabinet upon which are piled the white rolls for which 'f we have worked so hard. The first name is called, and then others. Will ours never come? Yes, there it is! We rise and in a dream go forward. We grip the hand of the kindly Sec- retary, and then, at last, our fingers close around that roll, and a feeling of supreme hap- piness sweeps over us. When ally-the diplomas A . - . lilil THREE CHEERS FOR THE YOUNG LADY WHO PRESENTED THE COLORS. HIP! HIP! 36l have been given out we all stand up, and for the last time the old class song swells up.

Covmc, in Tlw Balzimnn: ltlrrzrfxl U The adjectives usually applied to Maryland's Capital are sleepy and "quaint" During lunc week, however. these are not at all the ones that lit. Then Annapolis is gay, even metroliohtan. Dol y and 'I felt festivity in the air as soon as we alighted from tic train. We read it in the faces of the passengers who went down with us, and in the beaming countcnanees of the muldies who awaited the arrival of the languorous express. ' fl feel humiliated to theldust not to have somebody in uniform awaiting us," said l. "There is always the policeman," suggested Dolly. But even the policeman at the station paid no attention to us: he was too busy smiling in sympathy with the joyful girls who alighted and who were soon appropriated by cer- tain smiling young men in blue. "I should ie glad even to have a 'cit'," said I, but Dolly was busy looking about her, for the scene was a perfectly new one to her. A long line of middics was making its sorrowful way over to Murray Hill to pay its parting calls upon certain fair eharmersg pretty girls from everywhere were everywhere. and they were clad in the dainticst of lilmy gowns and the wh1test.of shoes. They wore no hats, and over their beauti- fully coified heads they carried faintly tinted parasols, which threw a becoming color on their cheeks. "It is the Summer Girl in the flesh as shc has been sung in song and told in story," I whispered, looking at several beautiful specimens. "And drawn in pictures," added Dolly. staring at another damsel. The town seemed filled to the brim and running over with young men and maidens. On the high wooden steps of the Colonial houses they clustered in groups, the roses grow- ing over the porches forming a frame for as pretty a picture as one could sec in a dafv's journey. We secured a guide w o could tell us all about events past and to come, and made our way slowly to the grounds of the Naval Academy. "Things are very unevenly divided in this world," said Dolly. "Now, here is a middy who for his sins has two girls. and he's such a little fellow, too." "One of them is a 'gold brick,' I suspect." remarked our guide, with all a man's cynicism. "A 'gold brick,' in Naval Academy slang. is a girl who is not pretty, can't dance and can't ni lc." "And here," I murmured, "is a girl who has two middics all to herself: it isn't fair." "That's because she is plump and wears a sailor suit. She will have a dozen admirers before the day is over." ' We passed a beautiful brick house with wings, wluch must have been built about the time of the Revolution. and seated on its vine-shaded porch was a couple who seemed to have forgotten utterly that there were other people in Annapolis. Their eyes were fixed on each otherg their ears heard none of the sounds of the street: their thoughts were far away from possible ohscrvers. If evcr there was absolute absorption, it was here. We entered the Naval Academy grounds, passing the scntry and the brave young man who takes the names of the middies who go out into the town, and wandered into Lovers' Lane. I "I'm awfully afraid of 'em when they have their swords and things on, ' I whispered, tremblingly, H , "Where did you see a sword?" asked Dolly. Hlllillls what I have been looking for ever since I landed--a weapon of some sort-and not one have I seen. In time of peace they don't believe in dressing for war at thc Naval Academy. ' The man at the gate wore one," I insisted, and she went all the way back to investigate. greatly to the confusion of the youth. "1.overs' Lane" is a beautiful walk which winds through that part of the grounds about which the new buildings are erected. liancroft Hall faces it, and it is bounded on the right by the houses of the superintendent and other ollieers. It is shaded with magnificent old trees and thick shrubber , and here and there along the walk benches are placed. Viyc sank upon one of them and viewed the prospect. "How beautiful it must be on a moonlight night!" sighed Dolly. It was not to be despised at that moment. The warm June sun was shining through the branches, the air was mild and delightful, there was a little breeze from the Severn, a band was playing somewhere in the distance, and then there were the pretty girls and the middies strolling with reluctant feet under the branches. "If you wish to see absolute dejeetion, look here," whis- pered our escort. It was to the left of us, and all the misery in the world seemed encompassed in the body of the midship- man who was in the should-have'bcen-loved society of mamma and little sister. "I-le wants to go to see his 'fcmme'," said our guide. "He is dying to spend his last hours with her, and the old folks have come all the way from Wisconsin or Michigan to see him graduate, and so there is nothing for him to do but to show them around. VVhile the other fellows are having the time of their lives he, poor dev--creature, is tied up here." "I would not do it," said Dolly. "lf l,had a son at the Naval Academy I would break my heart and stay away in lune week. I would let my little boy play with the other little girls and boys on this last glorious occasion without chaperonage from me." We saw them often after that --the parents and their middy son, and we noticed that while the "plcbes" were pretty nice and attentive to the old folks from home, the attentions decreased in proportion to the length of time the boy had been away from the parental roof. Sometimes a midship- man would have only mother or father with him, but we saw at least. one who was surrounded by a loving family of six. and who was plunged in woe to such an extent that we have serious doubts as to whether he will ever emerge. "Femme," said I, meditatively. . "Also Naval Academy slang. and means a m1dshipman's sweetheart," ex mlained our guide. "You wouldn't be able to understand tliese fellows if you heard them talk: theirs is a lan uagc all their own." "Yew spoke of moonlight nights," he went on directly. "Well, they don'1. enjoy many moonlight nights, I can tell you, and that is the only place wc 'cits' have 'cm. Once a middy and I loved the same girl, and he had the usual advantage that brass buttons have over plain hone ones, and so I ilidn't have much shew. Hut I used to come over here at night and persuade the man who fires the gun, which is the signal for 'lights out,' to allow me that privilege. 'Go to bcd, you little rabbits,' Iused to say as I fired away--and then I went to see the girl." "Wh that line of carriages over there?" asked Dolly. "l'erliaps it is one of Paul jones' funerals," I suggested ' 'Let's go and sce the old fellow," suggested our guide, and we arose and walked slowly up to Bancroft Hall. We passed a girl and a middy sitting very close together on a bench, and the middy was carving his name on the handle of his companion's parasol, in bitterness of spirit at the parting. There was a sign outside the hall which said "Visitors not allowed," and 1 paused nt the entrance. "Come on," said our guide, "never believe in signs." We entered the beautiful rotunda, unaccosted, and walked to the back, where the hero's casket is placed, with the Stars g - - ..,. 1 , 4 I 4 L 4 s 1 J w r 1 1 I l 4 5 f V W. V N , and Stripes covering it, and an oil painting of the deceased standing on an easel beside it. "Among his other had habits, the midshipman has no reverence," remarked our guide in the casual tone in which one man always danms another. "1-Ie has composed a song to go with Chopin's 'Funeral Mareh,' which begins. 'Some- bedy- hit him with a eodfish ball,' and it is astonishing how well it goes with the music." We' went upstairs to the large recreation hall, where a function of some sort was to be held that night, and into which a number of colored men were now carrying palms and other ornamental shrubs. As we entcred,a venerable man in uniform advanced to meet us. "At last I see an admiral," whispered Dolly. "It won't make any difference i it is Dewey himself if he orders us out," I replied nervously. And he did order us out. He said that visitors were not allowed, and our guide said what a pitv. and took us over to one of the windows to see the beautiful view of the Severn from that point. "What is the gentleman's rank?" asked Dolly. "lios'n's mate," replied our guide, and Dolly and I choked. We peeped into an oflicer's room in one of the corridors, a clean. hospital-looking apartment, and gazed at the three "decks," or tiers, upon which the midshipmen's rooms give. We weren't permitted to go into one of the latter. because we were neither mother, father nor sister of a cadet, Then we went to the Armory, which a dozen or more men were trying to putlinto shape a ter the german ofthe night before. From the ceiling three great white bells with long white streamers depended, and the floor was full of confetti and the remnants of favors. A midshipman was seated cross-legged on a table. reading something. "Love letters," said Dolly, imbued with the atmosphere of the day. "Time-tables," I replied, seoflingly, and so, indeed, the missives proved to be. There was the sound of a bugle outside, and we found that the midshipmen were forming and about to march to another part of the grounds. "We will follow the band," I suggested. We followed the band to the engineering shops, and not we alone, for every other "femme" in Annapolis was there. and directl was talking to her own particular property in the naval fine, for the middies wercn't really working, they were merely pretending for the benefit of the Board of Visitors. "You necdn't look so proud," said Doll , apostrophizing one haughty creature in n pink linen froek wlio had a midship- man cornered and was talking to him with wonderful ani- mation. "hc may be yours, but he is a mighty poor specimen, about the poorest I have seen." Before the embryo admirals had gone into the shops they had put on their working clothes. These consisted of white duck trousers, jumpers and hats. They looked, in the lan- guage of girldom. "too cute for anything," and never in my life and never in Dolly's life have we seen so many "nods and becks and wreathed smiles" and long, long looks as we witnessed that afternoon in those workaday shops, among that practical if fpolishcd machinery. "It is awfully good of you to go around with a mere 'cit'," said our guide humbly, "but I am trying my best to look like someone." "If they weren't all so painfully young," I murmured. ' We saw a number of "college widows," girls who had brought"plebes" along to the senior year, and new had their eyes on other "plebes" whom they would adopt after the parting, and bring to perfection in their turn. After the midshipmen were released from the shops they went down to the boathousc with their "femmes" and then we saw the prettiest sight of the day. The "femmes" had tied daintily tinted veils over their hair, except when they had borrowed their middy's hat. They were helped solicitously into sailboats, and soon there were any number of these white-winged things seudding in the breeze on the Severn. each holding a load of beauty and chivalry, and each directed in masterful fashion by a coming iarragut. Occasionally when a boat careencd very much there would be a shrill scream from the "femmes," but in spite of these contretemps they might all have quoted: " Our souls to-day are far away, Sailing the Vesuvian bay." "Aren't they having a blissful time?" sighed Dolly. "Almost I am tempted to wish for a 'midd '," and then she paused, for our guide looked at her reproaelifully. Later in the day we saw dress parade, we heard a band concert, and everywhere we saw the prettiest little scenes of courtship, all done in the most open fashion before the ap- proving eyes of the populace. It was a very tired twain that heard that saddest of all calls-"taps"-that night. The bugle sounded first from the Naval Academy. there was a faint and faraway echo from the marine barraeksg and I sat in the ivied window. feeling as if I had that moment lost my happy home and all that was dearest to me. "Do you think you have a good story?" asked Dolly slecpily, as we prepared for hed. "I should have. if I could get into it any of the atmos- phere of this charming town." lanswcrcd. "If I could make people see the old houses with their pretty gardens all marked off with clipped boxwood borders: if I could properl describe the rose-emhowered porches, or even the scheme of tiie beauti- ful new buildin fs in the Academy grounds: if I could show as it is Lovers' iane. and the lovers. who do not know they are only playing with that passion. but believe they really are experiencing itg if I could do these things I would have a good story, for Annapolis has a flavor all its own. It seems to me that a great deal more is said about West Point than about the Naval Academy-which is very unjust." "Did you like the custard pie?" asked Dolly practically. It was thus disrespeetfully she alluded to the dome of the Academy's chapel, which is done in yellow tiles with white ornamentations. and has been said to resemble a custard or lemon pie which the eonfectioner has gracefully decorated with meringue squeezed from a tube. "You can't get me to say anything even about that: I have had too good a time." I replied. I looked out the window of the hotel, and there on the pavement was a girl saying good night to a man. I-Ie was just an ordinary man. with nothing to distinguish him in the way of uniform or "weepons." It was very quiet. and the voice of the girl came to us dis- tinctly. "1 d0n't care in the least when he goes away," she was saying, "There is nothing between us. I wouldn't marry a naval oflieer for anything in the world. How could you think it of me? I hope you will come to see me very often this summer. and that we shall be as good friends as we were before he came to the Academy." "VVhat is it?" asked Dolly. ' 'So far as I can discover it is only an Annapolis girl hedg- ing." I replied, yawning. I"'-? I" I Ulibe Qtr!

They demonstrated the sincerity of their intentions by holding, about Thanksgiving, an "Amateur Night," at which anyone who felt the spring of actorhood welling up within him might allow the same to burst loose. The hook was in frequent and much-needed use, but the evening showed that there was some latent ability in the neighborhood, and that the midshipmen and ofiicers took an interest in the new organization. Accordingly, work was begun on a more ambitious project, the production of a comic opera. lfiersol, Donavin and Townsend commenced to bone sharps and flats, while Jukes and Porter besieged publishers for copies of joke-books, old and new. The result was . . ,, A apparent on May 29, when-"The Revolutiomsts made its-Mor their UD-bow to the critical public. And never was the critical public more agreeably surprised. .From the overture to the Hnal curtain the play was---to say the leastf---wonderful. Never had we dreamed that such a finished comedy, such delightful music, could be "written and com- posed entirely within the walls of Bancroft Hall." The plot dealt with the vieissitudes of two young Americans who had gone, as soldiers of for- tune, to aid an incipient revolution in Peru. After many trials and tribulations, and much confusion with one Dixon, a gamblin' gent, ably personified by Jukes, they were finally rescued by a squad of blue- jackets from imminent peril. Beautiful girls, native Peruvians and bloodthirsty revolutionists formed a vari-colored background. The songs, however, were the most notable features. Townsend'sfrsplendid waltz, "Volnag" l.'iersol's " Don Q," Donavin's "Pipe of Briar," and the no less attractive, though more catchy, "Flufty Rulitles Girl," and "Girl From Iowa," far surpassed much of the music of the modern professional comic opera. On the whole, the Masqueraders' first serious effort was little short 387 Q 5- A "W ii , 1 . .. l yt t f ,N an I ' if 1 ' " 1 , 1 , . I I .

After due deliberation the decision was M made that to insure good shows, and proper pre- paration, only two should be produced, one in Christmas week and one in the spring. After many trials and tribulations the Thes- M pians announced themselves ready to perform, and on December 26 produced the "Christmas Show." if ' , There were two parts, a one-act farce, "A Proposal Under Dillicultiesf' by john Kendrick Bangs, and "The Court of liunland, A Minstrel Mine of Many re In' Matters of Much and Minor Moment, Mmted by ' UQ' A -,,a"f'm . ,, . . .

'lhe lroposal showed the evils of rehears- ing such delicate matters, even in supposed privacy. Ayoung lover, Robert Yardsley. while waiting in the drawing room of a New York house for his fair inamorata, rehearses the speech of proposal which he expects to make. Unfortunately, the parlor maid, who is unnoticed by N the agitated youth, takes the proposal to herself. 1-...V and promptly accepts, awakening Yardsley to his I V J situation. Before the matter can be explained the t- ,c ', 5 real hoped-for fiancee appears, and the plo ' 3 i i thiekens. Eventually, however, the snarl is un- K tangled, Yardsley wins the fair divinity, diseom- Q fiting a more worldly-wise lover, and the maid - seeks consolation in a devoted eoaehman. Chap- line, as the object of all these alieetions, carried od' l ....... his part wonderfully, and displayed none of the 7 awkwardness which so often betrays men in feminine l ...,., roles. VVclsh, as the maid, Meyer, as Yardsley 3 . the victorious suitor, and Porter, as the defeated lover, all distinguished themselves by clever and capable rendering of their lines. "The Court of Funlandu proved a veritable "scream," from beginning to end.

The Masqueradcrs are now at work on the spring show, and there is great promise of last ycar's splendid success being repeated, if not ex- celled. The piece is to be another comic opera, entitled "Gretchen" The scene is laid in the Ger- man principality of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, and the plot concerns itself with the love affairs of the beautiful Gretchen, the ultra-modern daughter of the old Prince Heine. How her various suitors become entangled-Hthanks to the deeds of a Yankee valet-A--and how they are eventually straightened out, is told in typical comic ope1'a style.

Alas, no! The Choir is now the observed of all observers, and directly under the eye of both the Commandant and the Superintendent. lt still happens, however, that. as in years past, they voluntarily give up the pleasures of Friday drill and Sunday morning inspection in order to spend those periods in labors helpful to the proper blending of their voices in majestic harmony during the service through which we must sit defenseless.

In the Reading Room, which is supported jointly by the Athletic Association and the Y. M. C. A., the Midshipmen have access to the best magazines, as well as to the daily papers from various sections of the country. The Reading Room is not as popular as it deserves to be, but it is hoped that a greater appreciation of its advantages will be apparent as time goes on, ln each of the past two years permission has been obtained to send a delegation from the Naval Academy to the International -Y. M. C. A. Conference held each summer at Northfield, Massachusetts. To these meetings come men from all the leading colleges of the northeast section of the United States and of Canada, and they there have a chance to receive new ideas and inspirations which make them better prepared to take up the Christian work in their respective colleges for the ensuing year. I-lere the Midshipmen have their views broadened. They hear the words of truth and helpfulness from the world's greatest Christian leaders, and they are brought to realize their responsibilities and duties to their fellow-students at the Naval Academy. lt is hoped that the coming summer will see a larger delegation from the Navy than there has ever been before, and it is believed that the Work will continue with increasing interest and that more of the men will come to know Him., " whom to know aright is life everlasting." To the Chaplain, who is the otyricial head of the Y. M. C. A., we are greatly indebted for the wise supervision and kind advice which has stood us in good stead in times of trial. Each year during Lent the Y. M. C. A. has provided entertainments of various kinds to fill in the unoccupied evenings. ' AT NORTHFIELD 396 Q H. H. CLARK, U, S. N CHAPLAIN X FEQ -,',.l..

K, populace proclaimed the appearance, on the morrow, of the "Biggest l Q, , Show on Earth." Great interest was immediately aroused, and all " ' i waited breathlcssly for the hour, 6.30 A. M., set for the beginning of the show. E Christmas morning, to the glad sounds of reveille at 6.30, falling for once on undcafened ears, the Class of 1909 turned out. The Class of 1909 they were then, but in live minutes they were wonderfully transformed into blood- thirsty pirates, rollicking cowboys, beautiful maids, demons, convicts, and all the "hellish crew" that the wildest imagination could devise. Witli one wild, wicked whoop of daring deviltry, the motley throng gathered on the ground-Hoor of the Armory wing, and beganhto be stopped finally only an hour later-to chant "One More River." Soon the per- sonnel of the show was complete, and the P-rade got under way. Led by the field music ofthe band, the procession wound a devious way through quarters. T o the underclasses, crowding the stairs and the corridors, it was a mar- velous sight. First came l SEl.lOl11C---7101 Isadora Dun- can--spellbinding the be- holdcrs with her wild dance and daring QPU costumeg then Mcphistophelcs, with his latest Oriental favorite, the Princess Pajali, skipped gladsomely along, pursued closely by a murderous band of pirates.

The Sunday papers brought in several Buster Browns, Alphonse and Gaston, Little Nemo and Flip, Happy Hooligan and Glooiny Gus, ballet girls threw kisses to right and left, and a nurse tried to marshal four unruly charges into line. All, how- ever, was not fun and frolic, for at the end tottered along a poor old blind man, and a naval ollicerm- though yet a midshipinanfrfgrown old in the service of his country, and Death, a grisly skeleton, was reaching out his arms to gather them in. Last of all, a gang of cruel convicts, firmly fettered, clanked miserably on. Round each floor went the merry crowd, singing, hooting, dancing, ' N yelling.

Salome gave a gasp and ran for a rcefer, the ballet dancers began to kick higher yet than be- f01'C,aI1Cl what with snow-drifts below and refrigerated air all around, even the gloomy convicts grew spiritcll, and exchanged the slow lockstep for a lively double- Shuflle.

Led by three heroic Hottentot Chieftains, the crusade stormed the Superintendenlfs, besieged the Commandant's, and attacked Ponce with heavy Cvocall artillery. The for- tresscs were strong, howeverg the enemy did not appear to treat for terms, and the crusaders, croaking hoarsely, found their way back to headquarters, to spend a busy half-hour remov- ing the stains of conflict. v X .

During E43 Q , X ti drill hour they were suitably entertained with a review, after which ' ' " "Rooster Bill" Rawls, who happened to bc on duty that day, was de- 3 f tailed to show our distinguished guests around the Yard. Bill did not X -3 catch the name of the party of elderly men, and having been shut up in a corridor on the fourth floor all day, had not heard of the arrival of such a select assortment of scientists. He wandered with them from building to building, explain- ing in his grandiloquent manner the many interesting things to be seen. At last the wire- less station was reached. Bill had had a " P" work on wireless the day before, and decided to make a grand-stand finish. He discoursed to them fluently on electricity, pointed out the wonderful antennae, and where the actual facts had escaped his memory, filled up the gaps with as thrilling information as he could devise. When it was ended one of the gray-bearded men thanked him. " I have enjoyed this very much," he said. " I am Professor Ira A. Remsen, President of johns Hopkins University, and I should like to introduce you to my friend here, Professor Daniell. What is your name, please?" Bill gasped a minute, but was not to be outdone. "Oh," he said, "That's all right! V111 Tommy Weyerbacher." what Giza fight One autumn afternoon a tea was given aboard one of the monitors lying in the stream off the Academy. .Percy Northeroft was invited, as is the custom at teas. He had a par- ticularly pleasant time. On account of the great number of guests he was able to slip in for refreshments several times. Finally the hostess, a kindly lady who had smilingly observed his fondness for food, approached him.. B "Can.'t I get you something to eat?" she asked. Percy looked at her sternly and inquired in a caustic manner, " May I ask your name?" Percy really ought to find out whose teas he is attending. "Sm-S513-SSB 1" All of us observed and bewailcd the early hour at which the last liberty boat shoved off from the dock at New London this summer. It was particularly hard for Raguet to return so soon, so he devised a plan of creeping alongside the Chicago at a later time and gaining the deck of the former flagship of the White Squadron by means of the convenient Stern ladder. I-Ie supposed, of course, that the commissioned ofiicer of the deck would be Sleeping soundly, and that the Midshipman on watch would be gazing at the stars and dreaming of leave. He calculated without Benny, however, who seldom slept, and who was leaning on the quarterdeck rail at the identical moment when Edward swung on to the afore-mentioned stern ladder and felt his shore-boat slip out from under him. Benny leaned out over the rail. "Who is it?l' he asked. Rags thought of course it was a Midshipman. "Sh-ssh-ssh -keep quiet, can't you!" he whispered fiercely. 4Il Z DI.

Fixes his gaze on some point at an infinite distance beyond the prof., and commences to display his complete comprehension of the assigned subject and all other knowledge in an aggrieved tone, as though feeling hurt that the instructor is not content with his previous rep. as a basis to mark him on, but must ask him questions on the lesson for the day. Once started, ispvery hard to stop, for, his mind concentrated on the subject-matter, any trivial remark such as "That will do," or the Frenchman's " Bon," fails to sink in. lf questioned about a detail, looks more hurt than ever, answers the question and proceeds with injured dignity, as though there had been no interruption. Has no tolerance for profs. who do not see it his way-which way is generally right--and will not descend. to argue with them. When the instructor finally succeeds in letting him know he has said enough, sits down slowly, focuses eyes on opposite black- board and accomplishes immediately the marvelous feat of going to sleep and yet keep- ing both eyes open. WUEST Jumps up quickly as name is called, and inclines his head toward instructor in order to get his subject perfectly, If he does not catch it verbatim, asks to have it repeated. Then makes all possible speed to the board, writes down name and subject hurriedly, and with feverish haste commences to write, Has discovered long since that blackboards are wider than they are high, and consequently writes his words like dachshunds-long, but far from high. Spends the hour filling his board and as many adjacent boards as are vacant. Velocity at first is constant, roo words a minute, but as time passes acquires an acceleration of fifteen words a minute. Final result, two acres of board at a pressure of zooo words per acre. Five minutes before end of hour faces about and, at instruetor's nod, commences reading rapidly in a monotone. Agrees profusely with any interpolation. by the prof., and again resumes narrative. Winds up his spiel with an air of " l have only treated this subject in an elementary manner, and should you 'wish it, I can enlarge upon it ad infinitumf' Sits down carefully, quietly, and unobtrusively, and should there be any time left, as is decidedly unusual, follows the recitation with very apparent interest. TOWNSIEND Arises slowly, unfolding his joints successively, and after an interval of deliberation, asks that the question be repeated. When he has absorbed the general trend of his subject, turns to the board, writes his name rapidly in a small, straggly hand, then pauses to muse awhile, with an air of intense ennui, upon what possible connection there can be between the subject assigned to him. and what he remembers of the lesson in the book. He finally grasps a clue, and then, with an air of disgust, at either the simplicity of the question or the manual labor of discussing the matter at length on the board, takes up a piece of chalk and describes in glittering generalities Csafe methodj what might be either a Foster pressure regulator or a 12-in. turret mount. After writing about fifteen lines his capacity is exhausted, and with a sigh of relief he sinks loosely into the nearest chair. There he passes rapidly into a semi-somnolent state, from which the instructor usually has difficulty in arousing him. When he Hnally realizes that he has the floor, he turns to his work and reads it off without 4l8 7 r any apparent interest whatsoever. The reading completed, he answers any further ques- tions the prof. may put to him with the same cheerful alaerityf?j, and, the catechism com- pleted, drops once more into a chair and, this time, into a state of complete somnolence. 1 VAN METRE Gets on his feet quickly, cocks his head to one side and assumes an intelligent expres- sion similar to that of a young calf deep in thought. The subject assigned, he nods cheer- fully as though to say, 'A Yes, sirg l'll be glad to do it for you, sir," and makes his way to the board with a curious sidewise, crablike amble. Writes slowly and carefully, with an angular, schoolboy hand, and sits down at first opportunity. When called on assumes a position characteristic of Van de Boe, the human wishbone-his feet together, but his legs, through natural distrust of each other, spreading well apart, left hand hanging loosely, very loosely, and his right poised in air, as though uncertain where it may find an abiding place, his head bent to one side and forward. Recites in a very confidential tone, as though his matter was of the utmost importance to the instructor, and emphasizes each accentuated word with a nod of his head. Has a triple-acting method of answering a question, the words, "Yes, sir," in the same confidential tone, a decided nod of his headfso decided that one involuntarily stoops to catch the head if it should break ofi'-and a spasmodie jerk of the left hand, Concludes with a last burst of confidence and a final convulsive nod. RAWLS Rooster Bill pushes his head well forward, slowly rises, raises his right foot with a fiourish, as if disengaging his spurs, and gives the prof. a squint out of his good eye as his name is called. Assumes a pigeon-toed position, puts both thumbs in his beckets and cocks his head forward in the characteristic pose that gave him the nickname of "Rooster," as the subject is assigned. When the prof. finishes, Bill always gives the spot behind his right ear three quick scratches, stretches his right leg back a couple of times and steps gingerly to the board, being careful not to let his spurs strike each other. At the board he writes frantically a moment, stops, quickly scratches his head three times, stretches both legs and steps back so that he can focus that good eye on what he has written. Sees that the board is not full, steps up to it again and goes through the same performance. After three or four trials he fills his board, then triumphantly faces about, clasps hands, and feels both spurs while he winks at anybody who may be in sight. When called on he scratches his head, puts his thumbs in beckets, touches his toes together, squin ts his good eye and reads rapidly. Before answering any subsequent questions scratches his right ear three times. As soon as clear of the section room he delivers the subject, the text-book, the prof., the Department, the Supe., the Com., the Academy and the Navy to the hot hands of the Devil, he damns them all to deepest hell: he consigns them to eternal torture, and ceases his burning curses only when " Zim" starts the band to playing " Come on, Zim.

I must have been one of 'em. I was disillusionized the rirst day I got in here, and it's been getting worse ever since. I don't know just what I did expect, but it wasn't this. Look at this, mang you live till you're sixty years old, and every day of those sixty years you've got to run son1ebody's errands, and the ehances are you'l1 never get more than three thousand dollars. A man that gets through thiseplaee can make three meals a day, and right now lid rather have a dollar a day outside than forty in. Anyway, the Navy's no place for a man with any ambition. A straw-man would do just as well as an officer in time of peace. All they need is something to fill out the uniform and show oil those gold stripes. I-Iumph! that's not my styleg I'm not in that class. I used to think the life was what we see at Hampton Roads-f big, clean shipsg nice cool, white clothesg go ashore when you feel like itg travel around and all that. Of course I knew there was work and lots of it, but I thought it was no worse than eit life. I never thought of pacing a wet deek for four hours while the drizzling rain chills the marrow in your bones, or else spending twelve hours a day in a greasy engine room--temperature one degree below hell's hottest corner. I was a fool for ever coming here. No, I wouldnit like to hit a Mediterranean squadron. Let me get my hands on my dip., and all I want is to hit the high places for Richmond.

After having got a Valedictory out of His System at the Local High School, he came to Uncle Sam's Finishing School on the Banks of the Severn. He started Strong, but the Ante was too Steep. This Gent 'then got a Brain Throb and thought to Himself, "Grease is the Right Dope." He attached Himself to a Bucket of Slush and a Hypodermic and Started Out. There was Nothing suggestive of One-Night Stands even in his Maiden Efforts. He made all other Greasers look like Four-Flushers. He successfully jockeyed for Position at the Wire, got the Pole and a Clean Start, and had left the Field behind at the Quarter. It was Not until First Class Cruise, though, that his Finished Footwork really showed up. Then he got the Center of the Stage and the Green Spot Light. From volunteering to Relieve the Officer-of-the-Deck in Time of Imminent Peril to roaring " Right On!" at all Times of Night and Day with such Force that it Jarred all the Mill Scale oft his Eye Teeth, he was johnny at the Rat-Hole. In all trips Ashore he was Mess Gear's right-hand Man. In Fact the Uninitiated sometimes confused Him with that same Right Hand. After listening in Open-mouthed Wonder to Descriptions of Punching Holes in a Chunk of Iron, he would Look at Mess Gear with an "Ohl How Noble" Expression. Two Stripes he drew and set Him up as a Shining Mark. But one Dinner Formation while he was Sunning himself in the Smiles of the Fair Sex, the O. C. flushed him and Brought him Down to Earth. MORAL-MYOU may Grease the Wheels of Destiny, but They will occasionally Slip a Cog. Ulibe jfahlz nf the lllllihbp anti the jaahal itauspital Once there was a Hot Sport on the rolls of the U. S. N. A. One day Somebody put him Next to a line of Graft. All he had to Do was to tell the M. D. he was the Proud Possessor of a Couple of Bum Lamps and he would be Shipped to Washington. True enough, it came to Pass as he had been Told. He was granted 48 hours' Leave. Great Preparations were at Once begun. Four Steamer Trunks, one telescope and Three suit Cases were packed for the journey. All the way to Washington as he lolled at Ease on the Plush, he hatched Ideas as to the proper Way to cut a Swath-with a big S. Having settled in his Suite at the Willard, he broke out the Festive Raiment and started for a Stroll on the Avenuei During his Inspection of the Washington brand of Peaches it occurred to Him that it Might be the Polite thing to report to the Commandant of the Navy Yard. He reported all right-al-right, only the Commandant saw him First. What the Commandant said about that Silk Lid, Frock Coat, Monocle and Spats will Never be Mentioned here, as this Book is intended for the Young as well as for the Old. The Bum Lamps were Trimmed and the Hot Sport departed in Haste for Annapolis. Finale-One hundred Demerits, restriction, 3rd Grade, etc. MORAL-A Midshipman can Never aspire to Own the Navy. 428 Ulihe Jfahle of the Jfusser Once there Was a Midshipman who Thought that he was the Genuine, dyed-in-the-Wool Mephistopheles when it Came to the Fair Sex. It was his firm Conviction that the Little Dears would rather have a Smile from him than a Box of Huyler's from Wicgard's. How- ever, he was too Wise a Gazabo to stake Everything on his Zozodont Smile. Not one Puny Penny of the regular Check furnished by the Governor was ever Invested in Hen- nessey's 3 Star. Never-it All went toward Keeping the Little Dears supplied with Cara- mels and Violets. And the Little Dears were too Wise to spoil their Graft. They would hold Hands and talk "Tootsy-Wootsy" Stuff to him all Saturday after- noon, and he would Come in to supper Formation feeling that He was the real Philadelphia Cream Cheese. At the Informals, evening Hops, Masquerader Plays and athletic Events he was Ubiquitous. His time in Quarters between Hops was occupied in Chasing around like a Flea on a Hot Griddle looking for more Worlds to Conquer at the next Hop. After four years of This he began to Think seriously of Splicing. After carefully Weighing all the Eligibles he found there Was only One that was Not found Wanting. The More he thought of Her the more Sure he became that He couldn't get Along without Her to serve his Cream of Wheat regularly every Morning. Acting on this Thought he sat Down and by Letter offered her his Hand and all that thereunto Appertained. Two days Later he received an Invitation to her Wedding to his Red Mike roommate. MORAL-You Never can Tell about a iWoman. Ulibe Jfahle nf the Gilheh Etiquette Once upon a Time a Brave young Middy, to oblige a near Friend who, in a Moment of mental Aberration, had got Dated up with two Bunches of Fluffy Ruffles for the Same Hop, consented in a Paroxysm of Sympathetic Solicitude to relieve the Friend of one of the Incumbrances-sight unseen. Disguised as a Human being, he met Her at a down- town Food Garage, where he was to Recognize her by a red Red Rose on her left Hind Shoulder and a Triangular Freckle on the Right side of her Nose. One look Convinced him that he was a Regular nightblooming Swozzle for being inveigled into the Game. However, he overhauled his Batting Average for the Year and thought he Saw a chance to do the "Thin red line of ,I-Brees" stuntg so hooking her No. S on his good Right Wing, he cantered for the Scene of Carnage as steadily as her Kangaroo gait would Permit. Despite his efforts to Saturate the Atmosphere with Hot Air, the Chills ran up and down his Spine as he realizedthat he had drawn an Unexpurgated Edition-de-Luxe of a Gilded Briquette. Her laugh was like the Fire-drill Siren, she breathed Heavily, and she Danced like a Rhinoceros plunging through the Waters of the Nile. There were Midshipmen to Right of him, and Midshipmen to Left of him, but not One responded to his Frantic Signals for Reinforcements. The Consomme in his circulatory System became Turgid and his flow of Rhetoric became Spasmodic. At last in Desperation he muttered to Himself-"I need a Relief. Is there not Someone I can Sting?" A Youngster in the Stag line stood Gazing at the Lemonade. Approaching from the Rear, our " 'Eroe" seized him by the Arm and hissed: "This is your Dance,-Mr. Umpty- ump, Miss Ump-unity," and was off like a Shot. Then He went up to the Balcony for Eleven dances and Looked on. MORAI.H-DO your Own choosing. 429 Ghz Jfahle uf the Steam f!Exam Once upon a time the Steam Department took Council with Itself and decided to Give unto the long-Suffering First Class an Exam such as had Never before been Heard of, Not even by the Oldest Inhabitant. In due Time their Effort was laid before the ,Party of the Second part for their Perusal. Each man at the first Glance at the Papyrus saw that He had drawn a Bobtailed Flush. But there was no Renigging. The Dealer held all the High Cards and he insisted that all Come in on the jack-Pot. The "Straight Dope" was all to the Bad, but the Pencil Pushing began. The virgin 'Whitencss of the 42c. Exam Pads was soon Sullied by queer Hieroglyphics, and the Smell of burning Graphite Hlled the Air. Bill Rawls spent one Half-hour gazing Coquettishly at the Question, " Make Neat oil Painting of all Calorimeters, past and Present." June Yates. the Southpaw, was toying with " Make a working Drawing of a Gas Engine that kicks Both ways," and was Making mighty Heavy weather of it. Rosy Shea stayed in, Sweetening the Kitty every Round until he Ran up Against " Give a detailed Description with Sketch of a Cubic foot of Superheated Air." He regarded This as a personal Insult and Cashed in on the Spot. Thus the game Progressed with varying degrees of Success in all Parts of the Room. When the Game broke up there wasn't a Single first classman that Had any but White chips left, and the Majority of the Class were "Shy," MORAL-YOU can't Beat a Man at his own Game.

Jones, the Navy of the Prune Republic. Aided by a FQQG corps of efficient officers, the Navy was soon organized and the weekly target practice begun. The results were very satisfactory, and as a reward for their marked efficiency in both total hits and hits per minute, many oliicers and men were promoted. Unfortunately, however, a spirit of sedition and dissent arose, perhaps caused by the promotion of the more deserving men over the heads of some previously senior to them. It became necessary to quell this mutinous spirit, and a general court- martial, to consider such eases as might be legally brought before it, was convened by order of the Admiral of the Prune Navy. The court met in due season, and P. M. ze Rieger was tried on charge of "illegally making way with stores of the Prune Republicf, The proceedings, findings, and sentences are hereinafter inserted. Time passed, and the weekly target practices became more and more severe, and yet the excellence of the personnel of the service was so marked that the Great Hog of the Prune Republic was kept busy signing new commissions. The promotion board established a schedule of examinations for advancement, and any officer or man passing the examination for any rank or rate was immediately commissioned in that rank or allowed that rate. The examinations were to last not over one hour and to be completed at one sitting. The requirements were: Y if .. "i' 'iii , PRUNES PRUN1ss Admiral ....... . . Ioo Warraiit Prunist . . . .

Soon, however, the Admiral, recognizing the superior work of the Navy, decided to grant its members leave. Accordingly, general muster of the Prune Navy was held on board the flagship, August 27, 1 908, and after publication and signing of the Articles for the government of the .Prune Navy, officers and men were granted leave for a short period, to meet again for the fall target practices at the Prune University.

WELCOME I909! at NAVIGATION DEPARTMENT VS. FIRST CLASS SIXTH GAME'-SIXTH DEFEAT In a one-sided but hard and courageously fought gridiron bat- tle, the First Class went down again to ignominious defeat before the trained athletes of the Nav. Department. Every play was contested fiercely, and a few gains were occasionally made by the First Class when they executed trick formations, giving Wilkinson and Jungling the ball, but on the whole the defense was ragged, in- terference poor and attack weak. Ponce won the toss and kicked oii' to Richardson, who was downed on his one-yard line, The First Class fumbled and the De- partment carried the pigskin over in the first two minutes of G. M. T. Not disheartened by this, the Navy took courage again and ripped through the Department's line for six inches. Weyerbacher, Wilkinson and Welsh, the Navy's backfield, then carried the ball in successive plunges about one yard more. The backfield was good but the line too weak to hold. Navy lost on downs. Depart- ment's ball. Department's cap- tain' and quarterback, on a fake kick, put the ball under his jersey so that not even its semi-diameter was appreciable, and made a 6o- yard run, finally being tackled in Lat. ro5" NQ,,X 50 W. The Depart- ment's famous dead reckoning formation then carried the ball over for the second touchdown, and with the proper declination and right ascension their quarter- back kicked the goal. l With the wind, force 9, against them, the Navy took another time sight on the ball and kicked off to Department, who promptly punt- ed back to our 3-yard line. The First Class were here penalized for asking the umpire too many ques- tions. Things looked hopeless, but notwithstanding, we punted out and recovered the ball. On 'the nex-t play the First Class could not make out the signals and were thrown back for a loss, Ponce stealing the ball and making a touchdown. The half closed with the ball in our opponents' hands within striking distance of our goal. The second half was all plain sailing for the Dept. No time out was allowed, though several Navy players were put to sleep, and some put out on account of pro- fanity. Time was called just as the First Class began to show un- expected strength. The next game of the series will be played next Saturday. The Navy team seems to be disheart- ened, however, and are listless in their playing. The coaches are meanwhile hard at work doping out new formations from Muir's "Celestial Football." Many of the best First Class players are laid up in sick quarters as a result and the rest hope to be there for the next game. .1-iq-.

The merits and demer- its of the machine have been set before the young gentlemen in several strong lectures. The fol- lowing extracts make clear the embarrassing situation. "In this day and time, every progressive man uses a machine for calculations. Nobody uses log books or other relics of the stone age. In this department, you will be required to use the Omnimeter.

One morning last week a queer, ancient-looking old man, with a lantern in one hand, a peering look in the other-eye llstungl this is not the Capital! came silently through' the large crowd and paused before the Doctor's desk, No one seemed to notice him, to the great amazement of the BUL- LETIN Sage, until he finally real- ized that the old man, invisible to others, was Diogenes still pur- suing his futile search for an hon- est man. As he first paused before the desk, he looked upon the heavily bearded face of one who, in a weak voice, was speaking of his many ills, corns, blisters, indigestion, neuralgia, headache, weak eyes, faint heart, etc., with a strongly marked English accent mingled with an A, B, C breath. Diogenes shook his head impatiently and waited for the next. This one was tall, dark, hand- some, distingue. His gentle, pleading, brown eyes, eloquent with dumb pain, touched the heart of the old Greek 'and he began to look hopeful. But, alas! when the grand Duke began to speak in a tone that seemed to say, "I am Mary's little lamb, she has shipped me," the old man lowered his lantern and waited sadly for the next. This was an enraged one-striper who had been dragged in and, with voice hoarse from rage, insisted that there was nothing the matter with him. Diogenes looked once at the swollen chops and smiled sadly as the patient was sent off to quarantine. The next to appear was a gold- en-topped youth, with many stripes on his arm andwith a con- fident air. He breezily informed the doctor that he needed. indeii- nite leave in Washington to have his oculist attend to his eyes in a manner befitting his rank and standing. Diogenes gave one despairing glance at this youth "high in official and social circles," then extinguished his lantern, jumped into his tub and faded away. THIS WEARY WORLD.

For days the talk had been only of Annapolis's Bi-Ccn- 'tennial and the great parade in which the Midshipmen were to participate, and lo, last Monday was the day of days. At dinner 'formation the glad news was pub- lished, and soon thereafterr the Midshipmen, in full dress to pay due honor to the occasion, were in ranks, eagerly waiting for the word of command. At promptly four bells came the order, and the brigade, with a cry of delight, suppressed only be- cause of discipline, got under way. As they passed through the ITIZIS- sive stone gates of the Academy into the beautiful city, the Mid- shipmen were overwhelmed with the impressive scene before them. Maryland Avenue, throngcd with crowds of gayly dressed women and handsome men, lined on either side with mansions half- hidden by brilliant hunting, open- ed up a stately vista to the State House looming up in the distance. As the column, with mastcrly skill, executed a difficult maneuver and swung into King George Street, the cheering became deaf- ening, and the crowd went wild with delight. Through streets thronged with shouting humanity the brigade, proud of being al- lowed to take part in such a splendid pageant, made its way with measured tread. Behind thern and before rose the strains of "Maryland, My Maryland," and the inspiring notes made each Midshipman feel that this was his State, and Annapolis his capital city. In wake of the brigade marched the natty Marines, and behind them the soldierly ranks of Mary- land's National Guard, while the gray-clad sons of our brother insti- tution brought up the rear. All along the line the applause con- tinued in one unending roar, the people of the city and the thou- sands of visitors combining as one to cheer on their cou.ntry's de- fenders. . SONG OF TI-IE ROCKING- CHAIR BRIGADE I Now this was the chant I heard them rant, As over their tea-cups fair In deep conclave, with looks most grave, Sat each grand-dame in her chair. From a lady pale comes a grue- some wail, Then fast were the hammers laid, X And they sang a song that was loud and long, Did the Rocking-Chair Brigade II . "'Twill be great joy--yes, indeed, ai boy." "She does her own work I hear." "I'd like to know why they make such show." "I-Ie knows nothing of bridge, I fear." "Not :L word l'1l tell, 'twas an awful sell, Not even the grocer was paid." So with coup de grace that leaves no trace Adjourns that gallant Brigade YOUNGSTER--"Say, Mr., can I ask you what.

The Thanksgiving Hop was the largest and most brilliant affair of the season to date, and the floor sparkled with pretty girls and gorgeous costumes.

One of these was in the Academic build- ing, ground floor. The host di- rected the guests into several beautifully decorated rooms, the refreshments were laid out on the plane of the equator, and con- sisted of G. M. tea, pie prime and pie second, served in a new meth- od by Miss Marcq St. Hilaire. Among those specially noticed were Mr. and Mrs. Froggy, the Envoy Extraordinary, who was called away on important busi- ness shortly after the affair start- ed. jimmy attended, dressed as usual in the height of fashion. Dick was unfortunately unaccom- panied by his better half, Sarahg the latter being indisposed with a three. Pete was also there, but left in disgust when he saw that the course did not include spuds, without, however, disclosing his new discovery. Jingle came with a slush bucket, but was forcibly ousted by the invited guests. The second tea was in the Steam building. The, receiving committee consisted of Misses Schwamb and Merrill, ably as- sisted by that attractive Miss J. Gow. Promptly at a quarter to four the guests arrived, and left after a very interesting afternoon, at five-thirty. The hostess wore a pair of double-acting pumps and an epicyclic train. Music was beautifully rendered by a friction band. Among the guests was the speedy and daring Miss Thornycroft, chaperoned by the elderly Miss Babcock-Wilcox. The Countess N iclausse also was there to help receive. HENRY fafter attempting to Boston, to the lady?--' 'Truly, my heart was a desert before I met you!"

The next day we had a splendid wind. and sailed under staysail and mainsail as far as the Rappahannock, where the wind becoming more violent, we sailed up the river a couple of miles and lay at anchor a night and a day until the storm spent itself. That night thc niidship- men were drowned in Hampton Roads, though we did not learn this until later. The next day we got under way, everyone feel- ing frisk, and that afternoon dropped anchor off the Chamber- lain before the admiring eyes of the Atlantic Battleship Fleet. Finding it too rough in the Roads 5 6 blamestown Spike found the only girl in the world and jumped ship for two days. After that he couldn't get back soon enough to Crabtown, and from t.hcnce hit Virginia Beach again, where she waited for him. Thirteen days after starting we dropped anchor at the Academy, after the best kind of a time. One incident of note remains to be told: While at Wicomico Creek, Alva and Chinny went ashore in working clothes and tennis slippers to get fresh provisions. While ashore they so captivated the summer colony there that a dance was given in their honor that night, while the rest of us, thinking they had been capsized and drowned in the squally weather, waited anxiously all night for them. How we ever navigated the craft is a mys- tery, as our charts were secured from john Paul Jones' portfolio of 1776. But Howard was equal to the job, and kept us clear of all rocks and shoals and the miles of fish nets in the lower Bay. Many an evening the bunch will remember, when the ice-box was opened up and manclolins startcd,while yarn after yarn floated through the cigarette smoke of the little cabin.

Friedell as Warrant Oliicer. Chinny Butler was expected to be with the bunch again, but at the last moment he found himself too busy over his erratic heart, and was obliged to give up the trip, much to our regret. We made our headquarters at I4 Samp- son Row until we left, and spent a whole day relitting, stowing provisions and wet goods. Two dozen live chickens were sent down from the grocer's to add to our difiiculties, but these we crated up in boxes Qfrom which they frequently escaped and caused endless con- fusionj and stowed all over the deck. Roy distinguished himself by saving the life of one advcn turous chicken which tlew overboard as we rounded the Crabtown light. Later we had the pleasure of picking the birds and then the more exquisite pleasure of eating them fried, roasted, and broiled by the best chef that ever was on the Center. Thomas was the chef, and if ever a bunch lived higher than we did, or had better things to eat, they were surely envied by the dwellers on Mt. Olympus. ln fact, we lived so high that our funds ran low after the first week, and in eight days the Center was put out of commission by a sunburned, well-fed, husky crowd in fine form for a big time on leave. The cruise was not long. For two days we tried to get to Baltimore, but never got farther than Thomas Point, as the wind kept coming straight down the g r- N ,..11 mast th e Whole time. We then ran l , f over to Claiborne, found the place """' dryer than th e ' " l"""W' 'iiii MM Sahara, and imme- diately put over to Chesapeake Beach, where the crew made a big liberty that night and re- turned aboard with 455 replenishments for the larder and ieebox. There was no revcille next morning: That afternoon We upped anchor for home, and got to the mouth of the channel after a moonlight sail up thc Bay. Next morning we put in, where we all discovered our jobs for the next year. The next day we took on a cargo of girls and had a jolly sailing party all afternoon, inuwhich Eph tried to distinguish himself by jumping overboard. The next day, being Monday, the yacht was put out of commission and the cruise ended. The old Center may make many cruises in the future, but it can never take out a more congenial crowd of fellows and see more of the old Bay than on its two cruises with the Class of 1009. iv f 1 T 1 Xl I I.

As we were about to turn in it was sud- denly discovered that the Bar fK--- had not shown up, whereupon there was great excitement un- til wc heard a chug- chug and were hailed by a bumboat which bore our faithful Bar K--- and his precious cargo. SATURDAY, August 3, r9o7.H-The cargo was safely transferred and stowed, and all hands attempted to turn in about three bells--an attempt which was frustrated by an epidemic of bum jokes and Lame Jack's desire 'to be musical. At five bells we were awakened by an unsuccessful attempt on the part of the power-house to get under way. The silvery notes of re- veille, as rendered by our Bugler, awoke us all to the necessity of throwing him overboard, which we promptly did. At three bells of the morning watch the ery "All hands up anchor!" brought forth the wonderful effects of two years' Navy discipline. The Bugler fell down the hatch and imme- diately hit the sick list, the Doctor refused all but official duties, the Chaplain said the air was too lurid and xi' X ll F ..:-3 ix Rs... i 1 R- U Mi... xg , S N D X -'Ta f X .,- , . .,,.. -62 giiiiltiaaffzffiil ' ,Ln ff ' - -, I tgivlgflga '-.

So the Skipper and the faithful Crew manned the windlass and made sail, and we were off .on our eventful voyage. After an .excellent breakfast, which was but a fore- runner of the way Brown was to feast us, we chose bunks, stowed our effects, and settled down. The morning was spent in teaching the Crew to keep his feet off the Skipper's musical instruments. A short run, during which we passed everything going our way, brought us off Chesapeake Beach, where we anchored, Leaving the Chaplain in charge We hurried ashore for our first big liberty. Whi.le it is by no means a quiet place, we made the natives sit up and take notice, besides fussing several of the .I?aymaster's friends who were persuaded to come over for the occasion. That night a bad blow prevented our return- ing to the Argo, and we y X' nine had to sleep in the N , 7 hotel's only vacant room, . T X size xoxo, which was pro- A , f' ,,.i vided with nine cots.

Their ad- 458 ventures, the telling of which took most of the mid-watch, we have no room for here, but they centered about the Bar K- and the ship's ordnance. After recounting their adven- tures the Bar K--- and the Cox- swain began an argument which put us to sleep. Our last recollection was the Bar K- soliloquizing from the balcony and trying to blow out the gas. ln the morning, after much wigwagging, all man- aged to get aboard, C and S, by two bells and get the good ship under way. The Skip- per insisted upon having Sunday inspection, which was held in full dress, the Bar K- alone being excused on account of his heavy duties. After inspection, general muster was held on the quarterdeck where the Skipper made a short speech, saying that the ship was going to the dogs, but declaring,with Worthy sentiment, that he would stick ml l i by her to the very end. The day was perfect for sailing, and we enjoyed every minute of it. As the wind was favorable we decided to continue under way all night, and the beauties of that night's sail are among the pleasantest memories of the cruise. MONDAY, August 5, 1907-S21llCCl all day with a steadily freshening breeze from the southwest until in the afternoon we began to feel the swell which came in between the capes. The increasing wind made it necessary to shorten sail-until late in the afternoon we had only the jigger and topmast staysail show- ing. To add to the excitement the outrigger for the sheet-blocks gave way, and we had a lively time furling the jigger and setting a close-reefed mainsail. As it was evi- ' dent that we could not make Hampton Roads that night, we had to run in somewhere for shelter. The Skipper decided on Mobjack Bay, because it had so wide a mouth we weren't liable to miss it. At this point the Chief Engineer went below suddenly to fix the dynamos, followed soon by the Coxswain. After dodging fishing stakes the Crew mistook a danger buoy for a channel buoy in the gath- ering darkness. VVC dropped 459 anchor in time, but the Crew was severely reprimanded and denied his greg for twelve hours. After the hard a'fternoon's work and excitement, the dinner that Brown had pre- pared went to the right spot. Tuissnixv, August 6, lQO7r"'Tl1LE Crew sprang a surprise by answering sick call and then presenting a prescription from Doc. Gelin to the Bar K--, which could not be over- looked. This little excitement over, we get underway in a stil? breeze and made Hampton Roads in a small-sized gale. Ran up the Eliza- beth River and, to show our contempt for things in general, dropped anchor in mid- channel off the Exposition grounds. After being almost run down by several car-ferries it appeared that it was our move. The wherry was sent to . the U. S. S.

The cabin was lavishly decorated with honeysuckle and smilax, and the table was resplendent with our cut glass and silver. The Skipper, tastily attired in white full dress, reeeived at tl1e gangway under the cluarterdeek awning. ln the cabin Brown did himself proud, the table groaning under loads of his carefullyprepared dainties.

Even this loss was forgotten in our attempt, that dark and stormy night, to see how far we could run up the Rappahannock without hitting something. The Officer of the Deck tried to run right over Mosquito Point, but was stopped by the Skipper on the ground that it would be discourteous. A compromise was effected by an- choring in a cornfield. At Brown's ten. o'clock banquet that night, the Chief Engineer was absent, still having trouble with the dynamos. SUNDAY, August 11, 1907-Spent the day resting up and exploring.

What can compare with the beautiful moon as it rises over the hills and makes a broad trail of silvery light, up which you slowly paddle your canoe? What fancies, elusive and poetic, are bred in the soft effulgenee of that glowing orb! What gentle midsummer madness lies in a gaze into the merry, mocking eyes of the moon- '-TYTQ.-g,--gf!

You know the rest--it's an old, old story. Its mystic light gives a fairy touch to the scene. The quiet over which it broods and reigns makes nature seem to you sublime, in perfect harmony with the happy thoughts which are surg- ing through your brain. You do not speak, but just marvel at her beauty-at the won- drous glow thc soft light gives her hair. You see a reflection of its loveliness in the eyes that look to you with the sacred confi- dence that means forever. You realize how much to you is her trust and that to you she is the whole wide world, and you register a vow in heaven that all your life you will strive to be Worthy and fulfill together the promise of your golden youth. 4 Yes, we used to think such things, too, before we became really acquainted with the moon-but there's nothing to themg a 'last fond idol has been shattered. The moon is tabulated for Greenwich Mean Noon on page IV of the American Ephemeris and Nautical Almanac, and takes up much more space than it really ought to have in pages V to XII. At best, it is very unsatisfactory from a navigator's point of view, as its declination changes so rapidly that the G. M. T. must be accu- rately known in order to eliminate a pro- hibitive error in determining it. As for Nav. P. Work-a mention of the moon a complete and unconditional surrender. Its parallax and semidiameter are the most fruitful causes of mental collapse. for they bring but a distressing and maddening perusal of Bow- ditch, and what ordinary man means nothing less than 1 , 1 gala can interpolate for four elements and remain sane? Lookin the book for the approxi- mate Greenwich mean time of Greenwich transit-that's easyg but don't ask any- body to find the exact Greenwich mean time of Greenwich transit-that's a crime. Yes, we used to have those delightful fancies, but all sentiment has been lost in a maze of retardations, occultations, phases and retrogradations of nodes. W JUNE, 1909. S GIQEENNVICII MIHAN TIME.

There was but one boat available, and they refused to get into that, peremp- torily ordering as many men as it would hold to take refuge in it. Before aid eould reach them the vessel sank. Iflynson went down with it, Clemson clung to a spar, which he deliberately abandoned when he saw it could not support all who were hanging to it. Pillsbury was drowned off Vera Cruz. He was in command of the Mississippi's sailing launch chasing a blockade runner, when a heavy squall threw the launch on her beam ends. With his crew he managed to hold on to the over- turned craft until he saw that one of the men who could not swim was nearly exhausted, then in attempting to give his plaee, which was more secure, to the sailor, he was swept away by a heavy sea. Shubrick lost his life ashore. A naval battery had been erected before Vera Cruz, and the Midshipmen of the fleet drew lots for the privilege of serving in it, notwithstanding the fact that the Mexicans concentrated their heaviest fire upon it. Midshipman Shubrick, full of life and enthusiasm, had just arrived at the battery, and was in the act of pointing his gun when a shot struck him and killed him instantly. iillibe ibernhon Monument This was 'erected by oflicers of the Navy to Commander W'illiam L. Herndon, as a tribute of esteem and affection. Commander Herndon was a gallant ofhcer who lost his life while in command of the mail steamer Central America. At that time the law required steamships carrying the California mail to be commanded by Naval oiliccrs. The Central America was bound from Aspinwall via Havana to New York with a shipment of gold and live hundred and seventy-live passengers. Oil' Hatteras the vessel was struck by a hurricane, which caused her to labor so heavily that her seams opened and her fires were put out. After every resource of seamanship had been exhausted to save the doomed ship, Commander Herndon devoted his attention to saving the passengers and crew. He had been flying distress signals and tiring minute guns, which brought the brig Marine, herself almost a wreck, to the aid of his ship. Her boats were too small to live in such a sea, and all she could do was to receive those who might reach her. 'llhe women and children and a few of the other passengers were all safely put aboard the brig, when all saw that the Central America was fast breaking up. just before his ship was ready to take her last plunge, Commander Herndon went to his cabin and clothed himself in full uniform and came back on deck, not a moment too soon. Then, with his cap reverently raised, he went down with his ship. It was written of his death that " It was one of the sublimest moral spectacles ever witnessed by the sea." 4eo ' 4 g ilthe Zlliripnli illlnnument The Tripoli Monument honors Decatur, Caldwell, Somers, Israel and Dorsey, young officers who were killed in the heroic and daring attack on Tripoli. Decatur, who was in command of a gunboat in the engagement with the Tripolitan fleet, on August 3, 1804, singled out a vessel of the enemy and, after magnificent fighting at close quarters, compelled her to surrender. But while stepping aboard to take possession, he was treacherously set upon by the Turkish commander and mortally wounded. ln the second attack, on August 7ti'l, Caldwell and Dorsey were killed by a magazine explo- V sion on board their vessel, which was struck by a hot shot when bearing in to close quarters. Somers and Israel lost their lives in one of the most daring acts of heroism our Navy has ever known. The Intrepid was fitted out as a floating mine, with the intention of sending her into the harbor and exploding her in I the midst of the 'llripolitan ship- ping. To prevent the enemy from firing on the vessel when entering the harbor, she was disguised asa blockade runner, and two rowing boats were carried aboard for the escape of Somers and Israel and their crew. The hazardous expe- dition started out well on the night of September 4th, Ibut before getting into the harbor, the bat- teries and vessels of the enemy opened fire, showing that the surprise had failed. Suddenly a terrific explosion took place, and the brave men who were on board the Intrepid gave up their lives with the defeat of the enterprise they had so daringly undertaken. It was afterward known that the Intrepid had grounded and was attacked by the enemy's gunl boats, and it is believed that Somers, to keep the vessel from being captured, deliberately fired the magazine. The monument was first erected in the Washington Navy Yard in 1808. During the occupation of Wasliington by the English it was mutilated, but was afterwards restored by an act of Congress. It was moved after some time to the Capitol grounds, and in 1860, by the authority of Congress, it was removed to the Naval Academy. 48l ' The Sfapanese iBell On july rzth, ISS4, the Regent of the Lew Chew Islands presented to Commodore M. C. Perry, to be given to the United States, a huge bronze bell, with a frame in which to grounds in 1858. of the inscription: " 'This beautiful bell has been founded and hung in the tower of the temple. lt will awaken dreams of superstition. lf one will bear in mind to act rightly and truly, and the Lords and Ministers will do justice in a body, the barbarians will never come to invade.

At that time Commodore Perry was in command of the Asi- atic Squadron, and Minister Pleni- potentiary, charged with opening the ports of Japan to the trallie of the world. The bell thus represents the goodwill of the Regent toward both the government and the officer. lt was set up in the Academy The following is a translation " In the eighth year of Eriaku and of Kanoye Tora, of the reign ofthe King of Lew Chew, Kei-shi- yo-ho-I-lo-o offered a prayer of benevolence for the people, and afterward ordered a large bell to be founded. He did this as an act of thanksgiving, and presented it to the temple of Daizen Anji, in the kingdom, in order that the King might reign prosperously and live long, and that the people of the three worlds,-M Heaven, Earth, and Hades,-'fmight be saved from in- fernal doctrinesg and therefore it was that he instructed Shokoku Ansai to frame this inscription: The date on the bell corresponds to the year l456, thirty-six years before Columbus discovered America. 482 Uiecumseb The statue of Tecumseh, as it is popularly called, is really the head of Delaware, chief of the Delaware Indians. It was the figurehead of the old frigate "Delaware,,' begun in 1817 and launched at Gosport in 1820. When the ship was broken up and dismantled, the head was sent to the Academy. The old chief has long possessed the mysterious power of imparting savoir, and many a plebe has left his room in the stilly hours to bow low before the " God of 2.5" and invoke his aid in the approaching semi-anns. All candi- dates remove their hats when in his august presence, and many Math and Skinny burials have laid their tributes of heartfelt gratitude before him. In the first part of our course here Tecumseh occupied a prominent position between the old library and the Superin- tendent's office, where the marching sec- tions could pay silent reverence on their Way to recitation. When the old buildings were torn down to make way for the new Academy, he was removed to a place of oblivion in the Seamanship Building. This year he has again been brought forth to occupy, this time, the place of honor in the Gymnasium, where his subtle inHuence lends strength at the hops to faint-hearted Red Mikes who are novices at the gentle art. And yet it is said that on any night before an examination, devout worshipers make their stealthy way to him to pay due homage. His memory will long remain green in our hearts, and our sincere wish is that in the years which follow us old Tecumseh may have the honored place he so richly deserves. 483 , hw , -rf - W'7 , -I i , 5, f' - : - A WI Y V M ,qm- g .i.

There were some happy days of expectation anyway, even though misfortune has finally overtaken me. Well, I shall feel better for telling my story-perhaps you will sympathize when you realize what I could have been. My first memory is of being packed at the factory with my mate and five other pairs into a box. It seems then that we were sent a long distance over the railroad to the midshipmen's store at the Naval Academy. As soon as we found this out we were jubilant, for isn't a military life the ambition of every white glove? Ah, we had begun to live! every- thing lay before us. From our place on the shelf we could see the midshipmen come into the store, and we could hear them ask for us. We were in great demand-I did not understand why, then-- but it made me sure that my mate and I would not be long in finding our new home with someone, to own us for his very own.

L first classman with blonde hair asked for our size, and we were the happiest gloves in that store when we were taken from the shelf and tucked under his arm. The new life was begun when we were tossed in the fourth story of a queer-looking apartment house, which was occupied also by several shirts, a number of collars and cuffs, and hosts of my own peopleg and wonder of it all !-they were all -I -5- m f fafilf---'Q lefts! I tried to find out from them where their mates were, but they, poor dears, were all in such bad health that they did not care to talk about anything, much less to mention what I soon learned was a mysterious ' TVTTUD iw?-I bereavement. There I lived, always in expectation, and this was only increased by the stories of my friends who were chosen by my master to go out into the world. Some came back with martial tales of long marches and the roar of cannon, others told of receptions and teas, but I liked best of all to hear of the dances ll arf as QM -how they held beautiful hands clothed in the most elegant gloves imaginable. Most of all, I loved to hear their chatter about my master, who seemed to be the idol of everybody'- and once a gossipy glove told me that he had been made to smooth golden tresses and pat pink cheeks.

Suddenly he began to throw us out on the floor, and I went among the first--as-my opportunity forever gone. With one last fearful oath he left us there, tramping over us in his rage. That was the ruin of my career, and I tried so hard to be among the chosen. The next morning the corridor boy gathered me up with the rest, and shoved me into a big bag with a disreputable assortment of clothes---M remember, I was in my very prime of life, I had never been washed, my silk was perfect, my Fingers had never been stretched, and my button was magnineent. The following day I was taken below to the horror of horrors. My doom. was sealed, I knew, but little did I realize the depth of my degradation. I learned the fate of my righ t-han d friends.
