WINSTON CO. Phlladelphla 1910 Ui 'Awe-7 . AW jfnmnnrh N board ship, before the days of steam, all the odds and ends left lying about the decks were seized by the Master-at-Arms and stored in a huge sacklfcalled the Lucky Bag. At the end of the cruise the contents were distributed among the crew by lot, some drawing blanks, while others obtained articles of real value. And so, in this, our Lucky Bag, we have accumulated the odds and ends of four of the happiest years of our lives, years whose memories will remain with us always and whose fruits we alone can realize. If through this poor medium you, dear Reader, can but faintly discern the good fellowship, the deep feeling and the sincere regard that has everywhere animated our Class we feel that it will be to you in every sense of the word THE LUCKY BAG 5 lucky llbag Sutaff Editor-in-Chief ROBERT TAYLOR MERRILL, 2D .

At the head of the first of these, Disci- pline, is the Commandant of Midshipmen, and he has for his assistants the Officers-in-Charge. This Depart- ment exercises continual supervision, through a system of subdivision of authority, over the intimate life of each midshipman, and lately has had charge of the mili- tary drills. The other Departments each teach some main subject and its closely related branches and are ranked according to their professional value. Seaman-- ship, Ordnance, Navigation, Marine Engineering and Naval Construction are, of course, essentials of a naval career, while Mathematics and -Mechanics form the groundwork of them all. English and the art of writing are much needed, and too often lacked necessities, and one of the Modern Languages is an absolute 1'equire- ment for a naval oflicer. Finally, the Department of Naval Hygiene and Physiology endeavors to build up that healthy and well balanced body which will alone make possible the full realization of the ideal naval officer. 12 dv" A E MN ft n M TSW fn Mx . ,nm Q, X , !

He is the original hot-air artist, which, backed up with a good supply of common sense, has proved an effective bluff' in the section room, and it is much better, as he will tell you, to get a mark by blufling than from knowledge. Never feels comfortable until he is running for six months on one D, and is always extricating himself from difficulties with an extraordi- nary ingenuityg as the time, when he heard the Officer-in-Charge coming in to rag him in a card game, he coolly put his cards under him on the chair, then stood at attention. His frivolous manner with an air of apparent insincerity is mislead- ing to many and has hidden the sterling qualities of a fine fellow from some of those who do not know him better. In spite of underweight and apparently poor chances, he worked hard on the crew, and no man has been more justly rewarded by being elected captain. Is a strong advo- cate of the Ensign Bill and the popular choice for the class banner. 58 James Thomas Alexander Girard, Kansas 6 'Alec ' ' This man may be chubby and small, And in fact he is not very tall, But the quality's hero, And with lots of good cheer, Ha's the friend of the class, one and all.

He went out for lacrosse, and proved that size isn't everything-got his LNT and a manager's job, too. He is a constant reader of the Girard "Appeal to Reason," and has heated arguments with the Alligator, trying to convert him to rabidly socialistic views. As fond of a joke as the next man, he fixed up one on Earl Winfield which kept that gentleman quiet for some time. He might have been a heavy fusser, but his class ring has been mortgaged for so long that he never has had a real chance to show his abilities. In addition to the honors at the top of the page, Alec was charter member of the old Smoking Squid, and was also on the Special Sleep Squad first class year.

He is a heavy fusser of the constant variety, and daily may be seen trying to beat Tubby Meyer to the Main Gate, or to the little place behind the boat-house. He wants to settle down, and would rather go into the Army than wait two years. As an athlete he made the crew that rowed. at Poughkeepsie Young- ster year, lost out on weight the next year, and now confines himself to Thursday afternoon tennis. Quite famous as a rhino and one of the Muttoneers on the "Chi" First Class cruise, he was continually under suspicion of trying to sink the ship on the first opportunity. He shaves regularly after each recitation, and breaks forth into joyous harmony UQ each day at noon, much to Chub's disgust.

Has been engaged to four different girls during his four years at Annapolis, and lost his class ring before he got it.

Subbed as a quarter for three years, and then made good as a First Classman, only to have his chance snatched away by the cancellation of the Army-Navy game. He takes his reverses quietly, however, and settles down to unselfish work as long as it helps out the team. Though never a "savoir," he gave up the greater part of his time for the Academy and athletics, and only by the hardest kind of digging did he and "Square- head" navigate some of the dangerous passages of Ponce. Gene is always cheerful, however, and has been the member of many, very many parties-which he wished might never end.

But like the gallant Southerner that he is, the Foso Kid doesn't mind the absence of hair if the girls do not. For truly he shines on the ballroom floor, and seems to have a natural talent for fussing. When she is there and he is here, he hunts Pete or Si or Eddy, and proceeds about Annapolis and her suburbs, hitting only the high places, and those but lightly. On the cruise the recounting of tales aboard the last boat was not complete without an account fby Baldy, of Baldy's big liberty. Due to his great skill in timekeeping, he held down a seat on the wrestling table throughout the entire season, but he more than earned his keep by withstanding the verbal and physical assaults of the handsome Mr. Kilgore. Occasionally even Baldy's patience would be stretched, and at such times he would emit a dismal groan that would make a whistling buoy ashamed of itself. But no matter how you may begin by running Baldy, you will end up by seeing the man in him and liking him through and through. os Mervyn Bennion Vernon, Utah ll H Mary .Bl?1l1If01l-, so bright and ao witty, Is u Ind that I'm sure you 'will pity When you learn that in truth There await for this youth Sixteen wives out in far Salt Lake City.

With a big, clear brain, backed up by thorough and systematic boning, lilary held down first place for Youngster year and never was very far from it at any other time. He roomed with Dutch for three years in the old fifth, and very natu1'ally developed a tendency to rhino, but never let that interfere with his going to any amount of trouble for his friends. As he is of a decidedly bashful temperament and shuns hops, he was one of the easy marks when it came to standing hop night duties for other people. He usually gets the class jobs which require much labor and return little glory, but Mary goes into everything he does with the same heartiness of purpose, and invariably performs a little more than he has to. However, if from this description you gather that you can bluff Mary into doing anything, you are sadly wrong. Like most quiet, good-natured men, he has his limits, and they are absolutely inflexible. Come as a friend and he will do all in his power for you, but try to force him and you'll find that you have been monkeying with the buzz-saw.

Loves to do for them in every way, especially as to boning up the wooden, and is always seeking and providing entertainment in the form of delectable social gatherings. Has a direct, outspoken manner and a loyalty that make it impossible for him to allow slander of his friends to go unchallenged. His occa- sional hard spells are of short duration, but he runs into more trouble per minute than an ordinary man does in a month.

As a result he played a center that made the Tigers think they were in the wrong place, and which went a long ways towards making the score what it was. When Meyer was laid up the duties of captain devolved on Monty and he carried them through with the same heady determination. At all times he is quick to express his opinions and to stand up for them at all odds. If he is wrong he will take the consequences, but the worst of it is that he is generally right.

For three years, under the supervision of Bill Nicholas, Doc ran a free-for-all rough-house in the Fifth Company. Nick did his best to keep a few fragments of the household from destruction, but with a running mate like Doc the job was well-nigh hopeless. They were lucky if they ever had a whole shirt between them, and regularly as meal formation came around you could find them, ten seconds before the late blast, each trying to get into that shirt,-Doc in the meantime wondering where he had laid his blouse and collar the last time he used them. Doc is a true savoir, and with a slight amount of boning could have starred easily. Knows as much chemistry as Remsen himself and can spout formulas by the yard. In the line of athletics, he was manager of the basketball team and captain of lacrosse, as well as captain of the victor- ious class basketball squad.

Finding that the training table was a thing of joy, he went out for football First Class year, and all but made a star player. Tookus has the rhythmic glide and paddling trot of a turtle, and feathers his feet with equal ease.

He is very deliberate in forming an opinion on anything, but once having formed it-right or wrong--nothing on earth can change him. His very courtly manners are the envy of all the would-be Chesterfields in the Academy. He is an out-and-out Red Mike, but no matter who she may be, no courtesy could exceed Buck's. At times, however, when there is an adverse wind, the vehement expression of Buck's indignation is the admiration of all his listeners. Generous to a fault, anything he has is yours for the asking. His great popularity, with our appreciation of his extraordinarily fine and strong character, made him a very close second for the class presidency, and has given him many positions of honor and responsibility in the gift of the class. As assistant baseball manager, he was once ordered to sweep off the field before a game. Buck was soreg but he did it.

His "M.S.B." on many of' the best things between these covers show that his hand is artistic even though his temperament is not. He usually kept pretty close to the head of the class with a negative amount of boning, and except when helping someone else out, could usually be found during study hours rapt in a bridge game with Cooke and Upty. But more than that, he is a hard, conscientious worker, gifted with infinite patience for the minutiae of detail which most of us are inclined to slur over, but which make for success in its fullest sense.

Freely admits that he loves to be conspicuous and have a chance to yell before a crowd, and herein may be found his reluctance to giving up his first petty officership for his well-deserved stripes. It was the unanimous desire and belief of the class that he should be a four-striper, but his good, quiet, efficient work on the cruise was too free from 'cgreasev to attract the notice of the officers. He is a true savoir, as the well-deserved four- year star' shows, and is never too busy or tired to help a "wooden" man through an exam. Fusses often, but is rather weak on distinguishing between "b1'icks,' and "queens" He is a boisterous, fun-loving child in many ways, but a fine, strong, strenuous man in all and bids fair to be an efficient naval officer who will some day make himself felt as a power in the service.

As a member of the old "Seventh," he led in the rough-houses, practical jokes and extravagances of that celebrated band. Nothing ever worries Spike into loss of sleep. He takes things calmly, ahnost indifferently, with a wealth of humor that robs troubles of their trouble, and rebuifs of their sting. Refused to disturb the quiet of his life with exercise till he found himself on the weak squad, and then pride well nigh made him break the strength record. When he accepted a seat in the back row of the choir he spoiled his record for non-grafting. But if the Lord did not give him a beautiful voice, he certainly did give him a manner most attractive, and that gallant manner is brought into play whene'er a skirt heaves in sight. First and last, a man to be trusted, and always the gentleman. 76 John Aloysius Byrne St. Louis, Missouri If H A quiet, soft-xpokcn man, Byrne Finds the Navy has yet 'much to learn.

Buzzard Ca, by PECK is a dapper, be-freckled little lad, who views the Academy as a means to an end, to be endured 1'ather than en oyed. He takes things very seriously, studying conscientiously, and fussing in the same spirit. A man of perfect aplomb, he retains his poise under all circum- stances, and cannot be bluff' ed by any one. At first the possessor of some narrow ideas, Speck has broadened a great deal, and has come out of his original reserve. Always quiet, he is at his best when fulfilling the duties of host at one of the enjoyable chafing-dish "tea-fights" that he and Pete delight in giving. Then Speck expands, and shows the true hospitality and courtesy of his nature. In conversation he has all the charm of a well- read and cultured man, but he shows this side of him to only a few intimates. With Pete, Speck forms another of those Damon and Pythias friend- ships of which this class has so many examples. Separated First Class year, these two tried every means to room together again, but without avail. At that they permit no dividing distance to interrupt their constant com- panionship. A polished little gentleman is Speck, who goes his own gait without fear or favor, and keeps for his friends a warm heart and a pleasant kindli- ness. To him the loud and boisterous joys have no attraction, and he views all such amusements with a superior scorn. "There goes the Irish rabble again!"

If it is a business deal or a matter of grave concern, then his foresight, shrewdness and knowledge of human nature usually give him the winning hand. His debonair diplomacy promises well for a political career, and he is not unsuited as "The Senator." A petticoat fluttering on the horizon will always catch his eye, but he has ever shown great dis- crimination.

One of the old Ninth, he was rewarded for I his long- and faithful devotion to it by being given the job of first P. O. for his whole First Class year. Henry has never let anything worry him much during his course here, he has been a shining light in the savvy math. sections, the court of final adjudication in regard to the Chi's little Nav. P. Works, and the roommate of Dickson, the one and only case of artistic temperament. On occasions Henry becomes really hard and usu- ally gets all that is coming to him at such timesg at other times he fusses madly for a week straight, but usually he is content to sit in his room and read, or, at most to play a couple of sets of tennis. The Choir is really his proper sphere, for the wonderful 1'ange of his voice was unsuspected until the duties of his office began to bring it out--much to its owner's chagrin. Like most of ou1' Missouri representatives Henry plays a good game of checkers, and on the cruise nothing would please him better than a stiff game with some other master. He's Savvy and efficient enough, but the installation of a wireless set would improve his communications one hundred per cent. 82 ' Grover Cleveland Clevenger 1 Excelsior, Missouri " Grover ' ' A regular "sl1ow-inc" is Grover, From 4uf.V80'lll'l, the State of sweet clover, Full of lVancIerlmvt ho Seems always lo be And ha longs for llle road and dog Rover. Buzzard Cal E hails from that "grand old State of Missouri," which, according to "Grover," is glory enough for one man. Not precisely a scholar, nor yet an athlete, he is a good comrade and a gentleman through and through. He served a long and arduous term as the late lamented "Stumpy's" moral adviser. An advocate of the straight and narrow path-for "lWr. Murphyf' alas, that he was not for himself, he has left us, and none of us but mourns the loss. Aboard ship when there was work going on on deck and a game below, it was an easy task to find Grover. In fact the only time he ever voluntarily came upon deck was when the liberty party mustered aft. Ashore he thought the day but poorly spent unless he made the rounds of' all the excitement--the Crocker House fthe cornerl, the Beach, the Pequot, the Griswold, with a flying trip to Norwich. Sometimes he returned aboard as early as the last boat -to sleep until the next one shoved off. If it be true that we all have our days, on Grover's there is a "big liberty." as ' Byron Russell Coleman Marionville, Missouri " Cudge " This innocent youngster we see Takes nothing much stronger than tea. With this as his drink, You scarcely would think So blasd mul roue hc'd be. Buzzard fa, bb E hails from Missouri, but he doesn't need to be shown-he's wise. His volubility in describing imaginary persecutors is alarming, and his ability to devise tortures for the aforementioned would put the Spanish Inquisition to shame. Every cold bust in recitations is followed by a volcanic and vituperative twenty minutes, which makes life exciting for his small wife, Chevvie. For three years Pede Cygon wor- ried him and played practical jokes on him which would ruin the nervous system of an ordinary man, but Byron survived. His happy faculty for letting off' high-pressure steam in picturesque phrases probably saved him from squidging, for he was never forced to that. A comical scout and a good scout, with a fund of original and happy expressions and a knack for telling yarns that convulses. The cruises ever afforded him great amuse- ment, while he amused others by his pleasure-finding capabilities. When the squadron touched in Boston his tastes were shown to be distinctively epicurean. Pink tea abilities in him are conspicuous by their absence, but on occasions he put his better foot forward and took in a hop, where he showed to all a most mild exterior, but within he was chuckling over the A. B. C's of every little affair that was on footg and beneath the jolly, happy-go-lucky exterior lies sincerity, independence and a keen apprecia- tion of a man's duty in the big issues of life. as Walter Vincent Combs Eugene, Oregon "Sister" Our Sister is long and quite lean, As model a youth as we've seen, But he is so hard That he walks 'round the yard Arrayed in "civilians" bright green. 'Track 125. Buzzard Ca, by HE only girl I write to is my sister," was the origin of the sobri- quet of the unsophisticated Sister. But as soon as the oppor- tunity offered itself, Sis was right there, and ever since he has been always about to swear oft' fussing, being drawn back into the whirl each time by some new attraction. Sis always has a new experience to tell about, and he fully appreciates the joke, whether it is upon someone else or upon himself, as it usually is. His frank goodynature has enabled him to hold down the job of first P. O. of a hard company for an entire year-no easy task in these parlous times. A most absent-minded individual, he will ramble around in an abstracted manner and end up in almost any section room but his own, and never know the difference until reminded of it. Had memorable experi- ences in Philly with a stiff' green one, when the cabby charged him eight and a half' cents a block. Never known to grease, Sister usually lets some other man get the credit, and is prone to get flustered and lose outg but he has about as big a heart as there is in the class, and everyone knows it and likes him for it. ss George Martin Cook Post Mills, Vermont "Seaman," "Chorge" Seaman Cook is a sailor they say.

Verily a fountain of wisdom. Yet occasionally he unbends and deigns to smile upon things frivolous. At such times his distraction is fussing. Graceful and artful he is-with a preference for married women. He can, with a thoughtful, Woolsey-like look, plot the curve of the "Boston" even better than the "Moose."

Buzzard Ca, by HE mercurial Clip, whose emotions range from darkest gloom to deepest joy with the rapidity of an electrical oscillation. Cast down into the slough of despond when he hits a tree, he is correspondingly elated when he receives a good mark, and his joy is unbounded when the blue envelope comes. Pessimistically, he thinks himself bilged on any occasion whatever, and it is the delight of his friends to lead him on with fearsome pictures of his immediate future. However, the Clip is armored against running by his cheery good-nature, and though you can get many a rise out of him, his goat always remains in seclusion. Added to this he has a large amount of dogged perseverance which has enabled him to overcome, in the pursuit of his sheepskin, obstacles that would have daunted many of us. A lovable lad, unspoilt and full of fun, the Clip makes a faithful friend and an enjoyable companion for a liberty. He is oftenest merry, despite his occasional fits of the blues, and is quite an adept at the perpe- tration of practical jokes. It is worth while to see the Clip, as Douge is telling one of his famous yarns, anticipate that worthy and come down with his infectious laugh when the story is only half told.

Buzzard Cbj ' AVY has always been one of those men who are a power in the class and make themselves felt without the usual amount of speechmak- ing and theorizing. He is conscientious, though not disagreeably so, possesses a strong military spirit and a sense of duty, with enough moral courage to stand up for what he thinks is right. Few three-stripers could combine efliciency, consideration and justice as did Davy during his days in the Fourth Company, and thelunusual neatness of his Plebes was due largely to his personal wo1'k with the Flatiron. He is the kind of fusser that girls, chaperones and men all like to meet. His own tastes in that line are of the best, but many a time has he carried a hod to oblige a friend, without a murmur. In fact, he always refuses to share any of his troubles with his friends, and doesn't believe in crying over spilt milk, though he is the first man to sympathize with those who do. After hard work on the crew squad he gained a seat on the second crew for the only race of the season Second Class year, but this year he preferred to woo the Goddess Nicotine.

Bonaparte II, as he is some- times called, has such a high opinion of his famous predecessor that he has spent days in the writing of mysterious note-books dedicated to the great soldier. His classmates' most earnest efforts to discover whether these are historical or autobiographical have been altogether fruitless. Most of us are of the opinion, however, that these gems will some day appear as memoirs. First Class year our Ostrich fell in with rather rough company when he roomed with "Cootsie Coon Willg but he still keeps his distinguished mien and Napoleonic pose.

Beginning to be blase, he fusses a queen occasionally, and would rather be accused of anything else than d1'agging a brick. Always makes a big hit on leave, and was known as R. Gatewood, Lieutenant U. S. N., at the Atlantic City Hotel, which, with his dashing appearance, made him the target of many billet-douw. His course of physical training and gymnastics during Second Class year was discontinued when he returned from leave. His academic athletics have probably been much restricted, for he played wonderful baseball before entering-it is said. Not exceedingly savvy, he never bones unless he has to pull out of a hole, but could not avoid the last Christmas Tree, where he was posted for inefficiency. Very generous, free handed and full of life with his infectious laugh, he has all the qualities of a good companion and shipmate.

Began his career way back in the dark ages among the bush leaguers of the 'Middle West as organizer of the "Little Giants."

Was elected captain First Class year, an honor which he certainly rated. Though baseball is his specialty, Pop does not confine himself to this one sportg his many goals in basketball did much towards making our class team win the championship. Though quiet and undemonstrative, Pop wears well and is one of the best-liked men in the class. This is helped by his extreme modesty and readiness to give to others credit that is really due to himself.

Buzzard Ca, by HE Oiseau started his naval career a quick-tempered fire-eater from way down South, but three years of Uncle Sam have so tamed him that he is docile enough to be lived with safely. During this early life he acquired a horrible reputation as a rough-neck, which he hasn't yet been fully able to live down. He dearly loves a good Bull-skag and can't bone without one, though he complains that the fifteen min- utes or so a day needed to keep him out of the exams interfere with his smoking to some extent. Every Sunday afternoon he starts out with threats of "cleaning out the bunch in --'s room," but usually fills out a good page in his req book just the same. His command over the Eng- lish language, especially over the long words, is something remarkable, and the offhand way in which he can fling off something like "indigent decrepituden is a treat to the ear. As aRed Mike he is perfection itself. He boasts that his only appearance at a hop was when he was sent to a German on duty. Perhaps the absence of his class ring may throw some light on the subject. Despite his low-browed rep among those who do not know him well, those who do know him are mighty glad of it.

Pop Brown saw him work out a problem in Trig. one day and said to him, "Min Logan, you are very promising," and it is the general opinion that he has never been the same since. The same dislike for work has kept him out of the realm of athletics, but has not extended to his professional labors and his efforts for the common weal. For, as one of the secret "Special Duty Squad," many were the hours that Logan sacrificed to the cause of gum-shoe and dark- lantern detective work, in spite of the fact that those hours of arduous and delicate endeavor frequently coincided with those that the Discipline Department had assigned for drill purposes.

He has never been able to get up sufficient energy, however, to make good on a team and his afternoon exercise at the gym usually consisted of lying at full length on the wrestling mat. Frank has a large mouth which readily splits into a cavernous laugh, and with the Swede is the bane of section leaders. Once at recitation, though, he belies his appearance by showing himself quite a bit of a savoir, especially in Math. and' Nav. He has a marvelous collection of stories of Brobdingnagian proportions with which he occasionally regales the uninitiated, and he is ready to swear by anything you wish that they are actual occurrences. He is the inventor and sole owner of the Luckel pompadour, which is largely responsible for the hit he makes in Crabtown society. Second Class year the O. C. so often ragged him with a baneful cigarette aglow that an order was inserted in the M. C.'s order book requiring him to inspect Luckel's room every half-hour. Since then, how- ever, we understand that he has become considerably tamer and now, Nick says, he will eat from the hand. On the cruise, when in charge of a division at General Quarters, Heinricky didn't know where to take them, so he settled the matter by lying down on the engine-room hatch and going to sleep. 128 Scott Lynn Salt Lake City, Utah " Scoot " We had a young gymnaat, Scott Lynn, 0'er bar or trapeze he could skin.

He is as fine a chap as he is good- looking, with a slow, graceful way of doing things, and a courteousness that makes him popular with both sexes. Rather quiet, Mac is much given to the less boisterous amusements, and is particularly fond of an all night talk-f est. This propensity he had excellent opportunities of indulging on the Hartford, together with Donny, Spuds, and a few others. Imagine, if you can, a very dignified and handsome Scotchman of haughty mien and lofty air with a calm, serious look and you have Mac- as he appears to the casual observer. Yet when he discards his reserve and gives a thought to things temporal, there is not a more lively or talkative man in the brigade than the Hoot. A lover of practical jokes, he hides his schemes and plots behind a thoughtful brow,-and for this reason is nearly always successful. He is game for any prank at any time, in spite of his innocent appearance, and takes special delight in slipping one over on Spike.

The first term of this year saw his stock on the rise, so that after the February shake-up Marco tacked on another stripe. Frank has been in the fussing game ever since he rated that luxury. Dame Rumor hath it that he is engaged, though we cannot vouch for the truth of the matter. But be that as it may, the fact remains that he hasn't slipped through thus far unscathed, and, moreover, he is very anxious to see the Ensign Bill pass. For him, as for his predecessor in the Second Battalion, we can say that he rated all the rank and honor that he got.

The other is the 17th of March, and then-ride, Dutchmen, to your holes. Yet some broadly hint that "Mac" is Scotch.

To his endless regret, however, it is impossible to look really hard when one has a complexion that is the despair of every girl in Crab- town, and sometimes he wishes that he didn't have it, but it undoubtedly gives him a great lead in the fussing line, so he doesnlt grumble. The Count's endless good nature has made him the hero of many practical jokes, but once he did lose his temper, and a fearful fray on Greenberry Point was the result. Twice each year his prospects of being a naval officer dwindle down pretty small, but much burning of candles has kept him on the safe side of a 2.5. He is noted for his thorough and capable mastery of Knight's Seamanship, and for his attempt to run the U. S. S. Hartford aground on the Delaware coast.

As a fusser, he is right in his element, and any hop night his brilliant smile is not in the midst of the gayety, you can be sure that something is wrong. At times he shows up as a musician of note. For great occasions he has the fiddle that won him a place in the Metzenberger Orchestra, but for ordinary use he has a whole arsenal of tin horns. In times past more than one upper classman has made dire threats upon hearing a squeaky "taps" on the .roof at eleven-thirty. As a man, Charley is a staunch classmate and a true, steadfast friend to all. What more can one ask than that of him?

Once there, how- ever, he has never missed one since. A savoir of remarkable ability, he kills his time during study hours in different ways, such as exercising his extraordinary mechanical ingenuiity in devising new appliances. Now engaged in rearranging the mechanism of an old alarm clock with a view to perfecting a flying machine that will relegate Santos Dumont to the background as a performer of the past. Very quiet and even tempered, he has a good time without unneces- sarily annoying the O.

Often placed in positions to grease, where greasing is almost jus- tifiable, his faithful, sincere, frank manliness has proved incapable of it. Retiring and not self-asserting, he has a depth of hidden humor and bright joviality which are continually bubbling up and overflowing, forming an interesting, joyous personality that has made friends of everyone and not a single enemy. 14-3 William Elliott Moorman Glendean, Kentucky "Bill," "Tubby " Bill Moorman, 'tis sad to relate, Is rapidly putting on weight.

He has a large assortment of little quotations and proverbs which he delights to spring on his friends upon any occasion. A dry humor and a quick wit in the kind of repartee that obtains here make him a pleasant companion. He dearly loves a battle of words, and can usually be depended upon to come out on top. A member of the Old Sixt', Bill was a tower of strength in that rather "pee-wee" company, and was always sure to be in all the little shin- digs that came off' up near the roof.

Certainly, no failures of their season can be laid to Buddy's door, although the vicissitudes of his position have greatly lessened the few remaining hairs on his venerable head.

He is very plain spoken, never trying to appear to like a man whom he actually doesn't care for. Although having all the qualities necessary to make a good three striper, he didn't draw much out of the lottery at the end of the cruise. Perhaps this was because he wasn't quite "aff'able" enough towards those giving out the grease, sometimes called "efficiency," marks. Riley is one of those fellows who are greatly improved by going into the navy. When he came in he had rather a tendency to be hard and had a pretty hot temper. The domestic troubles he had Plebe year with his wife may have helped to cool down the latter a little.

He has many views of his own on the correct way the Academy should be run. For instance, he doesnlt believe in getting anything at the store, but thinks it much better to borrow. He is always ready to take a hand in a card game or to bet either way on anything. He wears an eternal smile, which it seems impossible to efface.

He is a "web-foot,', with a moon-face and little twinkling eyes that disappear every time he smiles, and he is always smiling. He has a keen wit, and a blandness when perpetrating a josh like that of the proverbial Heathen Chinee. A large-hearted' man, generous to a fault, he goes through life with the least possible effort, and enjoys himself as few do. Everybody loves him, but for his part he is more discriminating. At that his friends are legion, and to them he is a constant delight, and his company a pleasure. Any circle he joins is enlivened by his humor, while that Biliken-like face chuckles in mirth at the crowd. ' VVithal he has a large fund of good common sense, and an excellent judgment of values. Being naturally endowed with a portable gun-rest, it is no wonder that his success as a shot has been so great. He is declared to be the greatest amateur rifle-shot living, and at least he ranks with the very best. All around a sturdy, reliable man to tie to, and an enjoyable man to know.

Since Moose emerged from a two weeks' so journ in the bogs of Florida, he has been progressing steadily in class standing, stat- ure and fussing, so much so in the last that he decorated his locker door with a new set of feminine remembrances after each liberty.. But during the year when academic duties attain paramount importance, he merely keeps his hand in with an occasional fling. Was seen in the corridor last year dancing around in an effort to wear Percy Robottom's dress trous- ers to the "German,"-thought his own had shrunk. His droll, dry wit has been a source of constant torment to Holloway Halstead and of never ending amusement to the rest of the class. Very loquacious at class meetings, but after giving his weighty opinions in his pointed manner, thinks the meeting is over and moves to adjourn. Soon grew to care not for the three stripes he had landed from true merit in spite of his lack of greasing, but was restrained in an early attempt to resign and forced to wait until his semi-ans.

Far from being a hot air artist, he rarely talks unless he has something to say in his slow deliberate manner. Content to take undeserved "paps" which he might have put off' on others, he lost his well- earned stripes at the winter shake-up. A man who wears well, the number of his friends is the same as the number of his acquaintances. To the surprise of everybody, one Saturday afternoon First Class year he was seen at a football game in the stand next to the midshipmen's bleachersg but having once broken the ice, he has proved himself consistent in this, as in other things. 166 Frederick Carl Sherman Port Huron, Michigan HTed!!

I-Ie is a consistent fusser, and a discrimi- nating one, with a range in femmes from the Valley of the Ohio back to, in recent days, the Banks of the Severn. His forte is regaling an appreciative audience with tales, usually reminiscences reflecting glory on the narrator, of the Sunny South, and his fund of well-told anecdotes makes him a brilliant conversationalist and an entertaining companion. His temperament was aptly illustrated by himself in the costume he chose for tl1e Christmas Parade, but for all of that he is to be commended in that he is frank, and refuses to profit at the expense of someone else. Besides, he has the courage of his convictions, even to the occasional detri- ment of his marks. Aiming for a stripe First Class Cruise, he brought down four, and retained them throughout the year. The Kid is widely, widely known, his intimacy being a pleasure to a large circle, and his loyalty to friends most strong.

He mothered Tight through First Class year, but just couldn't help aiding the boys in playing jokes on him once in a while. Came back from the cruise with two shining stripes as a reward f1'om the Goat, but began to get hard and ended up in still more golden glory by landing a First Petty OfHcer's billet the second term.

He is a man of whom it may be said that, though we all like him, not many of us know him well. Rather diflident and quiet, his intimates are fewg but we all appreciate his many good qualities, and think highly of him. A conscientious student, he is a "savoir,' of no mean ability, as instance his exploit of passing an entire term's exams. without any greater preparation than can be gotten from boning by one's self. He is a consistent worker, a man who takes pains with all he does, and therefore does most things well. On the Olympia First Class cruise Smitty made good in every way, giving promise of developing into an excellent officer, and likewise proving himself a cheery comrade, frank and open-hearted by nature. That Smitty should have contracted so serious an ailment from a neglected cold of our Y oungster winter is a great sorrow to us all, and our sincere sympathy and heartfelt well-wishes go out to himg whether he remains in the Service or leaves us for "cit" life, we give him "Good luck." 171 Harold Smith Livingston, Alabama "Ash," "Hot Stuff " Smith H. had to tie up his shoe .-Ind did not know just what ho should do, So he stopped a street car, Tied his ahoe on the bar, And sent the car on when all through.

He is a boon companion for any occasion, and when in high spirits can deliver extemporaneous monologues on any subject desired. It was on some such occasion that he and the redoubtable Winfield devised that close harmony on "Percy's Younger Son." He is the only one of us all, possibly excepting Tim, who has success- fully carried a chip on his shoulder, in section room and out, for four years. As one result of his independence he wears a buzzard instead of the stripes that he graced the first term, but in studies he is savvy enough to more than hold his own. A true Southern gentleman, with the virtues and the faults of such, we are proud to number Ash among our classmates and friends, and we like him equally well for both the faults and his sterling qualities. 172 Jefferson Davis Smith Solitude, Louisiana u Jay Day n Our happy, goocl-naturecl J.

He settles down and studies when the time comes, however, and he and Jersey have made good their statement that they " just wouldn't bilge again." He seldom loses his temper, and is true to every friend-his faith in their good traits never being shaken, despite any disillusioning acts or adverse criticism. He and the "Clip" fuss together at all times and are in the seventh heaven when they find " just a li-ttle bit of a girl."

It was unintentional on his part, however, he had an independent air about him that the Upper Class men misconstrued as something worse.

For three years he held down the flighty Anderson, and by his sedate example prevented the alarming tougeness of that young man from spreading to the rest of the Brigade. First Class year his eyes went back on him, and though wrapped up in the Service, he buried his troubles under a smiling mask and went around to sympathize with others who were better off than he.

Two or three times it has been a pretty close call, but he has always managed to make connections somehow, and is still with us. First Class year he had a room so near the door that he hardly had to turn out of bed to be at formation, but in spite of this he and Pop Gillam usually blew in just about the time the O.

For three years he labored on the track and was developing into an excellent distance runner, but when First Class year came around he was so wedded to his pipe and his skag that divorce was out of the question. As a consequence he wears a green N 2d instead of the larger letter.

Unfortunately for the latter, he much prefers the company of his pipe to that of Crabtown's elite, which is, on the whole, a very wise choice. His chief achievement seems to have been keeping Sack Bagg down for three years and prevent- ing him from tearing the place to pieces when on one of his occasional streaks of general disgust. At one time Webb had about decided that the Navy was no place for him, but reconsidered and is still with us. He is fond of all sorts of out- side sports, but particularly of horse-back riding and hunting.

Two Stripes Cay. Battalion C. P. O. Cb! EORGE is a rosy-checked Kansan, bred a farmer, and proud of his State's record in the scientific development of that vocation. A sturdy, quiet man, almost secluded at times, he waxes eloquent on two subjects, Kansas and fussing. As an ardent devotee of the latter avocation he is a great success, aided by the natural gifts of a frank nature and a prepossessing appearance. He was one of He Smith's unfortunate 441, but found time, nevertheless, to join a house-boat party at a nearby summer resort, where pretty girls were numerous and eligible men few. Imagine his delight! ' Not an easy man to know. When once his friendship is given he is as true a comrade as a man can have, always willing to sacrifice his interests to those of his friends. An ideal room-mate, he never rhinos, and is generally happy and contented with his lot. He is studious in a way, depending upon the point of view, but manages to scrape a 2.5's worth- out of every subject. He often gives vent to his exuberance of spirits by pouring forth in song and verse at all times of the day and night, much to the delight and appreciation HJ of his neighbors. He believes that in living for the present the future will take care of itself. "VVhy, man alive! what are you talking about ?" "Why, certainly!" 186 James Murray Whitehead Trenton, New Jersey "Bones" A spick and span middy is Bones, Who charms with his soft gentle tones. To help out a friend He is 'ready to lend The last cent, shirt, or toothbrush he owns. Basketball C3, 15. Orange 1910. One Stripe Cab CCASIONALLY one meets a man of whom he says: "He's a good fellow,"--and, on looking further, says again: "I-Iere is a man-a friend indeed!" Such a man is Bones. A good fellow- a pleasant companion-a true friend. Believes in getting the most pos- sible out of life in the shortest possible time. Hating study, he still man- aged to keep on the right side of a two-five. Starting out with Upty Youngster year as a Red Mike, Bones was lured into the trap set by his queens, and transferred his allegiance to the stags. I-Ie managed to conceal the shiny spots on his blond head nearly all Second Class year-but was forced to join the Foso Kids First Class year in self -def ense. I-Ie moved along in his own quiet way and won the regard and respect of all who came in contact with him. 187 James Bothwell Will McArthur, Ohio H Coots ' ' Coots thought he was growing too thin.

One Stripe OOTS, the Infant Prodigy of the Academy, associate member of the Society for Psychical Research, and founder of the More Milk Club. Claims that he does everything in moderation, but is the ha1'dest man in his company to turn out at reveilleg admits he is a great fusserg and actually ate two Christmas dinners in one day. He loves to discourse on thought waves-wakes people up in the middle of the night by hypnotism, and takes kodak pictures of his dreams. In addition, is a wrestler of note, and does a few stunts with a rifle. Gave Dicky Heath a close race for short-distance champion in his eye exams., with a final score of forty-eight inches. Coots won immortal fame Plebe year byuputting in a req. for more milk, and never has quite broken himself of the milk-pitcher habit. His determined stand in the support of authority First Class year added to his fame, and incidentally to his grease. In spite of the merciless running which Coots continually lays himself open to, he is of the sunniest dis- position imaginable, except just after Nav. P-works. Delights all within hearing distance by his falsetto renditions of "I VVonder VVho's Kissing Her Now?" and other classics. 188 Edgar Miller Williams Springfield, Ohio " Buster " Altogether our Buster is small- Isn't heavy 1101' thick-set nor tall- But he co:cswai11's the crew Where its luckily true Lack of weighfs an advantage to all. Crew C4, 3, 2, lj. Red N 2d. Buzzard Cab. Two Stripes Cbj LITTLE chap, whose size has proved of no disadvantage to the various crews of which he has been coxswain, and who makes the proud boast of never having worn the megaphone in a losing race. As a result Buster used to take an involuntary bath off the float every time the crew could catch him after a spin. Four years of talking against a head wind to a forty-foot shell has given him a voice that is only equalled by a very few of the largest fog-horns on the coast, and after displaying it to the Discipline Department a few times in the humble guise of a P. O., First Class, he took unto himself a pair of new gold stripes for the second term. Among his other claims to fame he numbers a mania for photo- graphing, and a most excellently kept album indicates his skill in that line. He is a hard fusser, and succeeds as most small men do in that line, and he can give-and does on all possible occasions-an imitation of a homesick puppy that makes everyone want to throw him out immediately. Add to this his command of languages--English, Modern and Bad- which is probably wider than any other man's in the class, and you have the enjoyable personality which goes to make up Williams. 189 Bernard Oviatt Wills Walla Walla, Washington "Billy," "Willsey" At guard Billy Wills can't be beat, The game that he plays is so neat.

Buzzard fa, bl ILLY would rather play basketball than fuss, and he is equally good at either, with his success as an All-American guard and captain of' a champion team making him all the more endearing to the fluttering flirtations. How they have all longed to put ruffles on his costume at the basketball games! Since his recovery from a slight attack of heart trouble Plebe and Youngster years he has been open to all comers and each hop finds him intently rushing the next applicant. Likes to dilate upon the deeds of his friends in Walla Walla, empha- sizing the details in a deep voice that holds his listeners firmly until the tale is fully unfolded. Has an unaffected, vigorous manner, with a direct ability of' accomplishment that typifies him as the embodiment of the personified West. Is possessed of a rugged, steadfast, determined nature, with an adamantine strength of character and convictions that form a source of refuge for weaker souls, and invite many hesitating conlidences. In spite of the iniquities of First Class year, thinks the Navy a good place, which, with his ability of making friends of all those with whom he comes in contact, will keep him in the service and make a good and popular officer. 190 Robert Todd Young Marquette, Michigan C6 9 I There is a young middy named Younk Who hands out his talk by the hunk.

Buzzard Ca, bb STURDY young timber-splitter from the wilds of Michigan. Left his axe in the heart of the primeval forest, and came at the call of his country. Brought along a pair of lumbermanls socks, which he wears at night to protect his feet against the rigors of these Maryland winters. Stoompah takes to the Navy like Mary Roesch to sauer kraut and wienies. Is a mighty efficient man aboard shipg remarkably seagoing for one who has never been off' Soundings, and will likely be another Vasco de Gama of the U. S. S. Ivory Soap by the time he gets in deep water. Added to his name and fame during First Class cruise by being christened "Ginger" in recognition of his efficient service as head waiter on the Olympia. Ginger is a real diamond in the rough. Pays little heed to ceremony, is a plain, outspoken man. Likes to talk, but mixes enough good com- mon sense with his ideas to make it refreshing to hear him. Constitutes the tail end of the class, and puts a hot finish on 1910. Is a true Navy sport: "Equally ready for a fight, feast or frolic." 191 CLARENCE WELLS ALGER f"'l'ubby"j . .

ITP 1'i,fXnf'E?i:,'45TZ .'ifq '7L'Y'Fl'-:io-'rf'-" Asmfigl OMB time early in June, Anno Domini 1906, there began to straggl-e into historic Annap- olis by twos and by threes the members-elect of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Ten. As fast as each man could be impressed with the significance of his oath he was given a sewing kit, stencil kit, two black neckties and a laundry book and sent down to live on board the Severn until she should be ready to sail. In about a month, when that commodi- ous vessel was as full as possible without unduly crowding the sons of Ham up forward, she weighed anchor and Nineteen-Ten started on its first cruise. The destination was, of course, S0l0IIlOl'l,S and for four weary weeks the old fish-basket lay at anchor in that hopeless place, or drifted around under reefed topsails and a force 1. breeze, while the merciless sun searched every square inch of the deck. In the meantime the rest of the class were entering and being quartered in Bancroft Hall, spending their days wrestling with the manual or the drag-ropes of a three-inch field piece, under the watchful eye of the savvy section of the first class, who, instead of going on their regular cruise, had been kept in Annapolis to graduate in September. This was nice for the first class, but it cut us out of our share of any real 'fplebe summer," and we deeply felt the loss. It was while the second "bunch" was still incomplete that we had our first acquaintance as a class with sorrow. Kennedy Bonham Kilduff, though he had hardly been a member of us for a week, had already won the liking and admiration of every man who came in contact with him and his deathcast a gloom over every one. Two weeks later the Standish brought Kin- jiro Matsukata, who had been making the cruise on the Severn, back to the hospital for treat- ment. I-Ie was operated on immediately, but it was unavailing and the plucky little fellow passed away with a smile on his lips, a stranger in a strange land. These two sad events in so short a time served to show us that we were a class and could feel and act as such, in spite of Olll' extreme youth. ' On the return of tl1e Severn the other half of 1910 went aboard her while the "seagoing" men took their places in Quarters. The same d1'eary four weeks was gone through again and then the ship was moored. We were iihj-ilu 'A' .. AS IT XVAS IN THE BEGINNING VVHERE NVE STOOD FOR FOUR HOURS 214 all united in Bancroft Hall, and the graduation of the first section of '07 gave us a month of pure delight, marred only by the fore- tastes of trouble to come in the shape of French and Mechanical Drawing. Our own company officers, our classmates for M. Cas and THE DAY wn 1xA'rED YOUNGSTERS a sack of Bull hidden behind the towels in the locker-what more could a Plebe desire? However, it was all changed on the first of October, when the upper elassmen returned and the Academic year opened in earnest. For about two weeks we were so busy answering inquiries as to our residences, names, and affaires du eoeur that we had little time for aught else, yet even at that we were absolutely pampered compared to those classes which had pre- ceded us. The collection of investigations, 1'0Slf1'lClIi0IlS and dismissals that had been the fate of those convicted of hazing during the past year had effectually put a stop to that good old habit, and as a natural result we became about the tougest class of plebes that the Academy had seen in some time. A section of plebes going to recitation was audible for several blocks, at least. By the time that we had begun to get our bearings and look about a little the football season was drawing to an end and the big game was upon us. That Saturday when we jour- neyed to Philadelphia, shouted, and cried, and laughed, and finally, down in the mud of Franklin Field, rushed the victorious colors to the tune of "Army Blue"-that was a day to be treasured up for the rest of the year! Christmas came and went, with the rag-time formation and its concomitant first-class rates, the new year was ushered in after the usual custom, January passed and again we saw a portion of the First Class launched upon their naval career, the semi-ans. visited us-and after them the deluge! Forty-odd gone out of a class of two hundred and seventeen, and that in the first six months! At that rate we co11ld see our graduation ceremonies in 1910- Savvy Cooke calling upon Squarehead for "Three cheers for those we leave behind us P' and both members of the graduating class mingling with their friends while the band plays "Just HARD GUYS RAGTIME XMAS FORMATION 215 OFF FOR THE CRUISE WHEN '09 GRADVATED We Two," and othe1' airs suitable for the occasion. However, things began to brighten up with the approach of spring, and most of us managed to secure that required mark somehow before the band in the yard took away all power to bone. In the meantime we had heard great news. There was to be an exposition at Jamestown, the President was going, and we were to be his especial escorts and bodyguard. The then Youngsters were not going on the cruise at ..,v1f"-- " ' all, remaining at the Academy instead, so that the honor was all ours. Every day that spring the "Provisional Battalion" falias the Teddy Bears, alias the Goatsj, under the Second Class, drilled and paraded for the fame of the Academy and with the intention of "showing up" the West Pointers, who were also to be there. June at last arrived and we sang "God Be With You," went through the graduation with ennui becoming to those who had already . seen two, and finally swooped out to swarln around the Herndon monument, cheering everyone and everything, not forgetting ourselves. Next day we embarked on the Olympia, one hundred and seventy-five of us and seventy of the First Class, and maybe that historic ship wasn't crowded with us all. At Jamestown the much anticipated parade proved to be a four-hour wait in the hot sun and then a two-minute stroll across what we at first took for an unused pasture. Of the exposition itself, the less said the better-the only things in the whole place that were worth seeing were the ships in the harbor. The number of us who were on board was much too great for comfort, so forty- four 1nembe1's of 1910 were ordered back to Crabtown to make their summer cruise on the Severn, and a more disconsolate lot it REST AT CAMP PAROLE would have been hard to find. We saw them THEY DIDN,T SHOW UP SO WVELL THERE 216 off' on the Stand- i ish, gave them a i cheer with "Wind- jammersn on the end of it, waved our hats to the answering "Coal- heavers," and y headed up the l w V ' coast. We had a TIIE HALISV AY INIARK Cahn and PRACTICE BIARCH. trip, but finally did arrive in New York and saw the Navy crew bring a half-swamped shell in third at Poughkeepsie. The rest ofthe sunlmer was spent around New London after the usual manner, varied with a trip up the cost and a parade or two, here and there. At the end of the cruise we scattered to the ends of the land, partaking fully of the joys of that halcyon time, Youngster Leave. The days Hitted past and we returned to take up the life and our new service stripe. Again we came back from Philadelphia victorious, again we went through the Christmas jol- lifications and safely survived the succession of holiday boxes. The semi-ans. carried off more of our depleted classg we bade them God-speed and marched on. Youngster spring was a dream: the soft air, the band in the Yard, books forgotten and the cruise in sight. Soon we were ,off on the briny deep, the squadron being reinforced by the historic Hartford and the old Chicago, in addition to the Olympia and two monitors. The routine was the usual one -New London, Portsmouth, and Bath-and the work was the same succession of copying sketches of antique ordnance material from equally antique cruise note-books. The whole three months, as well as the month of leave which followed, were endured simply as a prelude to the Class Supper. September 28 saw the eager mob at the Belvedere, and there occurred the happiest event in the life of the Class of 1910-so far. The brilliantly colored room, the warm glow over the cozy tables, the happy faces of all our friends, all conspired to make the scene live in our memories. The next day we came to earth. Wenbegan Second Class year. This itself is merely a matter of time, but the accompanying effects, Barton, Johnny Gow, Woolsey and "Hen Smith are still painful subjects in the minds of many of our class- mates. At the end of the second month there were not enough people sat. to fill the savvy section, and that was in Math only. A few subjects such as Steam and Electricity occupied any spare time we might have. Nevertheless, we struggled steadily on, every one who had a mark in a subject turning all his efforts to help others less fortunate, and by the semi-ans. things didn't look as black as they had two months before. The exams turned out to be easy, and nobody was lost through their effects, though Nicholson had to go into convulsions to get out of some of them. At last the great day arrived, and, belting on our swords fborrowedj with as blase an air as we could call up, we went down to assume our provisional cadet offices and march the brigade down to see '09 graduate. As in a dream we saw them get their diplomas and go through the gyrations of the snake dance. Dimly we realized that we had reached the top and that it would be our turn next to be the center of attraction while the underclass looked on in hearty envy. Next day we piled out to the ships in the stream and prepared for our last practice cruise. The tale of that cruise has been told elsewhere, sufiice it to say that we found out that a. first classman was not all he thought he was going to be, after all. The chief difference 217 1 - i-ai1ii"ftlpIii1mni1luniis i Agliis f' 4. I tri 4. AE X Lf' l"'-fill i Y?-J 45755 l c Q-' . ' t, li- X . 'il K My? .E ' i I ,Vfrli X1 yi 4l,2.i..

September arrived finally, and we who had enough money to get home, pulled out for our various burgs with the least possible delay. But alas for the unhappy forty-seven! Leave meant little for them, and the opening of the Academic year brought to them only the question of whether or not they would be there to help things along. For, out of our class of one hun- dred and forty-three, forty-seven were unsat in Mechanics and facing a re-exam. at the end of leave. In the meantime the Brigade Organiza- tion had been issued and we gazed at the assort- ment of stripers and marveled-loudly. Later on in the year a little thing like that would not have surprised us, but we were unsophisticated then. A week after the opening of the year the exams were posted, and as a result we lost eleven class- mates-and after one has known and lived with a person for over three years it leaves a mighty big hole when he drops out, too! Football came along and the general spirit of unrest displayed itself there as it had elsewhere. The games were dull and listless, except that with Princeton, and, after the West Point game was called off, lost interest entirely. The cancellation of this game was one of the greatest disappointments of our course, and its lack was especially felt, coming as it did after an unfortunate season. In the other branches of sport, however, we had a winter that was little short of phe- nomenal. Billy Wills led his basketball team through a season in which we lost but one game and that in the beginning of the schedule. The team won the Southern championship, and composed, solidly, the All-Southern team. In wrestling and gymnasium work we were equally successful. The gym team won every meet, and defeated the winner of the Inter- collegiate meet by over fifteen points. W1'estli,ng came out victorious in all but one meet, and lost that by one fall. The fencing team defeated every collegiate team it met and capped the climax by bringing the Trophy back- from New York. After the semi-ans. the unexpected happened! The stripes were all shifted about and, if anything, a more astonishing ,set of cadet oHicers resulted than before, while those whose inclination led them not into social circles contented themselves with humble buzzards. And now, when each day reduces the chant of the plebes in the middle of the table, we can fmost of us, that isj shove our books aside and await with what patience we can muster the coming of the great day. We can look back over our four years and see things in their true perspective, recognizing our mistakes with an eye toward the future, and fairly apprais- ing the good things we have done.. There is much that is bitter in the reviewing, but taken K Qian N all in all, four of the happiest years of our lives will be ended when we say our last good-byes . f X to the Academy and the spot which has seenQQ'-ELT' -M 1 so many classes graduate. .

Somewhere way back in the realms of long ago, we remember or choose to forget, the trials and tribulations of a Plebe year. That year was hard. Back again in the hazy past, but not so far, is a Youngster year. That year was harder. Behind us, but so near that the marks of conflict, of worry, of fear and hatred are still fresh upon us, lies our Second Class year-the hardest of all. A First Class year is our doorway to the future. For that we have nothing but eagerness and confidence. Once past the superlative, we have nothing more to fear. Those who know say that we missed a stay at the Academy and the consequent extra leave by little more than a stroke of the pen, and so confident were the false prophets and their rumorings that we fully believed we were elected for the happy fate of 1909. Our hopes were dashed. There was, in the words of the immortal Hodson, "strictly nothin' regurgitatingf' We danced through our Second June Ball with that blase air only acquired by attendance at two of those eventful functionsg we packed our boxes and our bagsg we boarded the ships as Second Classmen have done since that far-off era when bows and arrows instead of eight-inch guns graced the ports of our battleshipsg we sailed away in the same old Way, and did the same old things. Second Class Cruise was a happy one. We felt the freedom from the petty annoyances which grate on the Youngster's sense of importance, and sometimes we didn't have to row or hoist boats. After the cruise-leave. A Second Classman enjoys his leave in a more sedate way than a Youngster, and very likely gets more out of it. He even begins to fuss with some- thing definite in view, and when he returns to the Academy your true Second Classman straight- way peals off' the promiscuous pictures of girls that have adorned his locker door, and makes it a shrine for theonly onliest. Of course this is only a general rule, but the exceptions prove it. After the month of-parties,bal1s, dinners, receptions, theater parties, hops, dances, joy rides, pic-nics, house-parties, quilting-bees, and all the rest of the gayeties which keep the midshipmen alive through that month of absence from books and studies, we made a grandstand finish with the Class Supper. The Hotel Belvedere, in Baltimore, was our rendezvous and our own for that 226 one nigl1t, and everybody was happy-supremely happy for once. The speeches, the toasts, the meeting of the old friends was ideally perfect, and in some future time when we are old in the service, and sit sedately around a ward-room table, it will still be a fruitful subject of conversation. ' Then we returned to earth, and signed up our return the next morning in the big book which graces the ofiice of the Oflicer-in-Charge with varied emotions. Leave lay behind us and we were sorry, but another year was waiting to be tackled, and we were quite in a mood to tackle it. While we were told on every hand that this was the hardest year of the course, the very fact that we had proceeded far enough to speak familiarly of Navigation, Ordnance, Seamanship, Marine Engines, Boilers and Mechanics, was intoxicating in itself. We remem- bered our own Plebe Summer, and the mighty gods who made or broke us at their will under the guise of Second Classmen-and here were we,'stepping calmly into their shoes. That was expectation. Then came realization. We had not been at work long before we found out that everyone had underestimated. No mortal man can describe the throes and the agony in which we writhed during this Second Class year. Mechanics developed from a nightmare into a horrible reality, and all the rest of the subjects ran it a good race for first place. Many of us who had laughed at the idea before, started burning late lights, and nobody, as far as we can ascertain, lay around during study hours and read novels. iBy the second month Mechanics had a strangle-hold, and our shoulders were so near the mat that it looked like a decision. Imagine a class of over two hundred with less than a hundred satis- factory in Math., and half of that number "squidging" for a 2.5! However, when the Semi- ans. fell due, we had spurted famously, and ended up the term with only one man lost as the direct result of the exams. The trend for the better during the second term was gradual but cumulative. So, with the cruise in the near and rosy future, Second Class year a thing of the past, and having led you to a happy conclusion of our story, we stop. We tell you now of our mistakes and hardships, knowing that when Father Time has passed his ray-screen over the picture, the high-lights which are the harsh ones will disappear, and we will read this over at some future time-and laugh. 721' 03 I i.'!:- "Gi A 'pc--" Q' i ' 1 .'I Q. ,K A-'-PU fduf-Qu 297 00 .14 U .

ANY, many months ago-they seem like so many years now-we entered the Academy as 'fgentlemcn of the new Fourth Class," and upon us, as upon Plebes since time immemorial, descended the wrath of the upper classmen, and the hereditary burden of iron-bound custom left us by those gone before. We had been 'fbraced upi' and ubawled out," cruelly imposed upon, as we thought, as to prisoners in a dungeon the 4th of June loomed up before us as the glorious day of freedom, when we were to enter upon a new life in a new world. And what a day it was! Had we not lived through those few hours a thousand times over, and had we not planned them months before? Like the funny moving picture people in the twinkling of an eye we had been transformed from the best-behaved class of Plebes to the 'f1'atiest" and wildest bunch of Youngsters that ever trod Lover's Lane. How different the world looked, too! How we looked down with disdain upon the candidates, slouching about the yard with their caps thrown back and hands in their pockets. They would be Plebes in a few days, and oh, for a chance to run one of them! It was a happy farewell, indeed, that sounded oft' the June Ball, doubly happy for us who were enjoying the first fruits of that pleasure which makes the fusser's life a paradise. Yet, truly, did we not feel a certain sense of loneliness on leaving dear old Crabtown, with its cool breezes and shady trees, for unknown ports far up the coast? Three months of this yachting trip-otherwise known as the practice cruise-served to give us a taste of life on the briny deep, and a coating of that brown enamel which does not easily wash off when the middy takes his first fresh-water bath. Work there was, and plenty of itg away all boats, shine brightwork, and furl awnings, yet who ever remembers how we groaned and sweated,-just for nothing at all! It must be mentioned, too, that we had gained an enviable record as seagoing men, for did we not pull running boats in all sorts of weather, and did not the youngsters fire the lumbering old "Hartford" all the way up the coast? Without allvits fun and good times, we could hardly look back upon the cruise as some- thing we had really enjoyed. But when we think of the shows and hops, of the ball games ashore, or of the famous menagerie on the "Olymp" CTommy Thompson and Kieffer in the Hspudsi' lockerj g or when we hear Duke Ramsey's famous guitar,-then we can smile and say, "Well, I guess we had one fine time, eh P" 932 Somewhat cautiously, yet with a feeling of restrained energy and bubbling enthusiasm, I tell of wondrous youngster leave: the month of bliss that comes but once in a lifetime. To get home again, and to see the girlsg to have a rousing good time, with plenty of money, no regulations, and no bugle calls, to walk and talk and ride with "her"-what is Paradise to this? Our studies we found hard, indeed, yet we cannot deny that some of them were really interesting. With our seventeen new story books we were very well pleased, and our new Naval History pleased us still better, for not until Maclay's History had gone to the scrap heap could a youngster rest in peace. After having been operated on Plebe year with an injection of two new algebras and a trigonometry, the Math. Department was so well pleased with the resulting condition of our brains that they served out a large dose of calculus for us to begin on this year. Absolutely indigestible, and hard as flint, it proved the death blow to many a struggling youngster, and left bruises on our systems that can never be effaced. "Last scene of all, that ends this strange, eventful history," is the vision of our wonderful foreign cruise! At last, after years of waiting, it has come, and when could we better appreciate it than now? Imbued with all the fresh vigor of the man who has "come into his ownj, we shall take hold of our new work with the same spirit that has characterized our actions in the past. Whether ashore or at sea, be our duties great or small, we shall perform them with the noble thought that we are making the history and adding to the glory of the Class of '12. n f i fm,-N .,,,-. -gan gs- 233 ......

We went bravely through the agony of appearing in public attired in the traditional new work suit, "unbiled" shirt and collar, and that natty and nautical blue and white hat fresh from the store, and after the first month or so began to enjoy ourselves as only innocent little Plebes can during Plebe summer. There were the usual scrambles for the coxswain's box at cutter drill, the same old descent on the milk pitcher as soon as the order "Seats" had been given, and at swimming drill the woods back of the bath houses were put to the same purpose as of yore. Towards the middle of August the regular inter-company track meet was held with the much prized Wednesday liberty for the winner. The meet showed that the class contained some mighty good material and incidentally gave us an opportunity to break a goodly num- ber of former Plebe records. Some baseball men were developed who will have to be reck- oned with for the first team, and upwards of twenty of us got our sharpshooter's medals. In football, 1913's record is well known and needs no more than passing mention. September was over in a jiffy and with October came the dreaded return of the upper- classmen and the serious beginning of the academic year. Then it was that many of us came to grief and that we all learnt exactly what a miserable creature a Plebe was and precisely where his place might be. Still it did us all a world of good and as we became a little less raw and acquired our share of spoons life became well worth living. The time fairly flew and before we quite realized it Christmas and New lYear's had come and gone and the Semi-ans. were ,upon us with all their attending horrors. Many of our best men and dearest friends succumbed and took their sad departure from our midst, but let us hope that they will return next year and receive our heartiest welcome. Thus have we told the tale of the Class of Nineteen-thirteen. There is not much of it, and most that has been said might well be omitted, for our story lies wholly with the future and with ourselves. Let us see what we can make of it. E238 EE ANHHI mm Q A fs A fs V VW' l ' 'Asif '94, fw A -. 0 , ' P V ,mfg 2 -XXX 0 , AQ.

This being the ease, it is evident that all other frames will be made of secondar im mortance. There D is one other object of every seasonis work: the development of new men, who will be able to do their share towards making the following season a success. PEYTON Both of these objects must be taken into consideration in reviewing the football season of 1909. The team was developed with the main object in view- that it would reach its best form in 'rule game, that it would be able to put up a game on the 27th of November which would be the best attainable with good coaching, well-trained men, and a full cargo of the real Navy grit and fighting spirit. VVe made a bad start. St. .Tolm's was our first opponent and they gave us our first severe jolt. The team placed on the field was an experiment, and it proved conclusively that Richardson belonged in the back field. In fact, it was not until "Bull-yi' had been shifted from tackle to fullback that we were able to do anything against the fast little team from the college on the hill. Then we scored three touchdowns while the St. Johnnies worked us on that old, old shoestring play Q71-5 1 LT. B ICRRIEN If I, ' ' 1' .

It was evident from this game that we needed a quarterback. The next Saturday we had three: Wilson, Battle and Byrd to try out against Rutgers. This team looked light, but they put up such a stiff' game that the substitutes first sent in were replaced by some of the older men. ery noticeable. During the of the goal, where Wilson and Reifsnider worked a forward pass for a touchdown. In the second half Rutgers worked a triple pass to the fifteen-yard line, and then made a successful try at a field goal. After the next kick-off' our backs carried the ball down the field for another touchdown. The game ended with a score of 12 to 3. Wilson's work at quarterback was very good. He ran the liant game individually. It looked as if the quarterback position was well filled. The next Saturday we played Villanova. Last year we had defeated them by a decisive score, but it was a differ- ent story this time. The game was hard and well played, though our team started without the services of Rcifsnider, Richardson and Meyer. Villanova worked a forward pass up to our two-yard line and then in three downs put it over. In the second half we could do nothing, and Richardson, Reifsnider and Meyer, all in very poor condition, were put in. The ball was on the thirty- yard line, near the sidelines and in Villanova's possession. A side line play worked, and the Villanova fullback got through our line and started down the field. Wilson saw him coming and made a flying tackle, but did not stop the man, who was finally downed just across the goal line. But "Willie,, did not move from where he had fallen.

On the first play following the next kick-off, Meyer was hurt in attempting to stop an end run, and had to be taken out. Our team held for downs and Richardson carried the ball for eight yards-and had to be taken out. Two plays later "Reif,' hurt his knee and had to be taken out. And now we could stop and reckon up what the Villanova game had cost us. Three of the oldest laid up for weeks, and the best candie date for quarter laid up in the hospital and fighting with all his indomitable pluck for life. Later in the game 'cRouge,' Reinicke, who had been doing the punting after Dalton left the game, lifted a fine one that bounced over the quarterbackis head and rolled over the goal line, M 7 l sv FIRST TEAM where Starr King fell on it. "Gene" Battle, who had replaced Wilson at quarter, kicked the goal and we were saved from a shut-out. And this ended one of the unluekiest games for theiNavy that has ever been seen on the Academy field. Both the tackles, Starr King and "Cit" Loftin, showed up very well in the game, and we all felt confident that those positions were well played. On the twenty-third we met Virginia. This game was characterized by two things-the spirit shown by the Brigade, and the playing of Staunton, the all Southern halfback on the Virginia team. Time and again McCaughey, Clay and Dalton would carry the ball down the field only to have a forward pass intercepted. Dalton would boot the ball fifty or sixty yards E24-9 STOPPING BULLY RUTGERS KICKING OUT BEHIND THE LINE Q50 only to see Staunton carry it back twenty or thirty before being downed. In the second half Staunton made a fifty-yard run, finally being downed on the two-yard line, and in three tremendous bucks, Vir- ginia could not gain an inch. Just then Navy took time out and the referee, Mr. Gresham Poe, of Balti- more, penalized our team one yard, and in a wrong decision gave Virginia first down. The Brigade had left the stand, and though it was pouring torrents they crowded around, encouraging the team. On the next downithe ball was fumbled and rolled over the goal line where a Virginia man fell on it. Virginia failed to kick the goal and time was called soon after- ward. It was not a pleasant game to lose, nor a pleasant way to lose it.-Mr. Poe apologized pro- fusely in the papers the next day-but it was the JACK CATES first time that the team and the Brigade really got together. The next Saturday, the 30th of October, we played Princeton. It was a real football game and the work of Richardson and Dalton in the back-field and of the whole line was good to see. In the first half, after an exchange of punts, in which Dalton gained almost ten yards on each punt, the Navy got the ball in mid-field and then began smashing the line, while Dalton added to the excitement with an eighteen-yard end run. 251 PAUL DASHIEIIL On the nineteen-yard line, Princeton held, and Dalton hopped back for a place kick. The line held beautifully and the ball sailed neatly between the posts, while the sidelines and bleach- ers went wild with delight. The Tigers received the kick-off' and after an exchange of punts started down the Held from our fifty-yard line, Hart carrying the ball. The inexperience of some of the linemen told here, for, though they fought like demons, they did not know just where to apply their strength. On the two-yard line, however, they braced hard and the ball went to the Navy on downs. Dalton tried to punt out of danger, but he was rushed and the ball went out of bounds on the twenty-five yard line. Again the line bucking tactics were resorted to by the Tigers and finally after as hard a fight as has ever been seen on the Naval Academy gridiron, the Orange and Black pushed Hart over. Between the halves the linemen were given some good advice and in the second half Princeton could do nothing with them. Neither goal was threatened and most of the time was spent in punting. On Princeton's twenty-yard line Byrd signalled for a fair catch, but he fumbled the ball, a Prince- ton man recovered it and they kicked out of danger. At the end of the game indirect word was received from West Point that one of their men had been killed in the Harvard game. The rumor was hardly credited, but next day the papers were full of accounts, followed shortly by oHicial notice of the death of the Army man. On Tuesday the Commandant of Cadets asked that the Army-Navy game be cancelled on account of Cadet Byrne's death. Our Superintendent consented, and the dictum went forth that there would be no Army game. The effect on the team was, of course, great. The game for which they had been living, cancelled, some of their best men in the hospital and no record in the games for the season. Although Peyton and the coaches did all in their power to secure a game with one of the big universities for after Thanksgiving, it was impossible, and the team realized that the season would end for them in the Davidson game and not as they had hoped and prayed and toiled for-in a victory over our friends the Army. The result was noticeable in the very next game. We played Washington and Jefferson and though there was no lack of fight, the game was slow and listless. Neither side scored, though we narrowly missed two field goals. But this game brought out another man who is going to make next year a success., "Red" Erwin fa. brother of the great "Red" Erwin, of West Point, who gave us our touch- down in 1907j, showed up splendidly. He ran the team very well and played an individual game almost like Eddie Lange. , On the 13th of November we played Western Reserve from Cleveland. They had a big team and played the open game on us at first for a touchdown. Then our team got mad 252 Q HENRY GOES AROUND LEFT END ON THE TIGERS, TEN'YARD LINE ' ." DOLLY IMAKES THIRTY YARDS 258 DOLLY RUNS IT BACK I BYRD RECOVERS A FUMBLE 254 and carried the ball down the field for two touchdowns in the first half and one in the sec- ond half, making the final score 16-5. On the next Saturday we played Davidson. The old men begged so hard to be allowed one more chance at the game that the coaches finally consented, and the game started with the whole solid team as it would have faced West Point. After the first play, however, most of these men were taken out and a team of underclassmen left on the field. But true to the perverse record of the team for this year, they let Davidson score and then made eight touchdowns themselves. And that was the last game of the season, and football for 1909 was at an end at the Naval Academy. This was the only game during the season that Meyer started. His old knee was both- ering him most of the time and the coaches were keeping him out so that he would be fit for the West Point game. The task of leading the team devolved upon "Tubby,, Brand, and he did it well, too, showing at all times his practical knowledge of this very practical game. But though we did not play West Point and though our work during the season is not going to give us a very good standing in the football world, we feel that we have not failed entirely, for we have developed men who are going to make a success of next year's season. We can never see "Bully" Richardson back up the line again, nor Reifsnider in all his grace hook a forward pass, nor "Tubby" Meyer and Brand piling up a mass play, but we can and will see Henry Clay lead such men as King, Loftin, Wright, Erwin, McCaughey, Cobb, Grafton, Nason, Dalton, Sowell, Weems, Hamilton, Vaill, Rodes, Austin, and others who have been developed this year, through a series of winning games next year, which will be topped oft' with that desire of every true Navy man, a Navy victory at Philadelphia. l PRINCETON,S BALL ON FUMBLE 255 SHOVING I'l' OV ER PLEBE COLOR GUARD 5256 ,EUG ENE ALEXIS BYRNE UGENE ALEXIS BYRNE, who was a member of the Class of 1910 in the United States Military Academy, was born July 17, 1888, at Buffalo, and was appointed to the Academy from the Thirty-sixth Congressional District of New York in June, 1906. Cadet Byrne attended the public schools of Buffalo while a boy and later the Masten Park High School of the city. While at Mas ten Park he began his football career, playing tackle on the school's team, which at the time was one of the best among preparatory schools of the State. He also played both on the baseball and the basketball teams of the institution, and 257 earned an enviable reputation as one of the finest all-around athletes of the school's history. At football, however, Byrne excelled, and for this sport he cared most. Upon entering West Point as a cadet he at once became a great favorite among his class- mates, and a favorite throughout the whole Corps when he had become an upper classman. His generosity, his keen sense of justice, his standards of what a man should be, brought him the love and admiration of every cadet in the Academy, and no one could long resist his frank and genial disposition. When Byrne went out to play football, he played with the strength of physical and moral courage that characterized all his actions. During his first two years he was on the second team, principally as a halfback, but in his third year, as a second elassman, he was tried for a line position, and there he immediately became a star, winning the position of left tackle on the first team. From that time on he played in every game when in condition, and through his steadi- ness and indomitable courage stood the army team in good stead in many hard-fought games. The last football season of 1909 found Byrne playing his usual position and more brilliantly than ever before. Physically he was a remarkably powerful man, and that such a terribly sad accident as that of the Harvard-West Point game might fall on one so strong seemed almost an impossibility. In this game, which was played on October 30th, Byrne was acting field captain of the army team, and the game was a hard but cleanly fought one. About the middle of the second half he stopped a heavy tackle play directed toward his position, and when all the players had risen, it was evident that Byrne, who had failed to rise, was badly hurt. Medical attendance was instantly secured and a great hush fell over both players and spectators, for it was soon seen that the accident was very serious. The game was stopped and a few minutes later the teams and spectators silently filed from the field from which Byrne had just been carried. The Corps did not give up hope for his recovery even when the knowledge of the terrible seriousness of his injury was ascertained. But early on the morning of October 31st the news of his death was brought to the heavy hearted and anxious members of the Corps. C The blow, in all its suddenness and sorrow, went straight to the heart of every man in the Academy, and the pain of it all still remains keenly vivid to the friends that he left behind. He gave his life doing his duty for his Alma Mater,-and in doing that duty bravely and fairly and as he had done all thingsg and always at West Point will his name be held in rever- ence and in honor by those of us who knew him, and by those who shall hear of him in the years to come. . He left the Corps without an enemy and gave them an example of manhood ever to be emulated and admired for its honesty, kindness and courage. It is hard indeed to comprehend why one so loved and so dear to his family and his many friends should thus be taken,-and it only remains for us who can but mourn and remember and may not hope to understand, to say with sincerest reverence, "He played his part Well." 258 1 EARL DUNLOP WILSON IFE-from Reveille to Taps-is action, and things done are at once its accomplishment and its reward. Action along the line of right endeavor makes for that success which advances the world and leaves it better because of the doer and his deeds. By such a standard should the individual be judged, and by such a standard should his name be held in memory. Measured on this scale Earl Dunlop Wilson, loved by all of us as "Willy," indeed merits the decision "Well done, thou good and faithful servant." His Naval Academy life, short as it was, was all-sufficient to exemplify the power and fruits of action. A born athlete, his athletic energy seemed unlimited and it availed to carry him to victory in any and every branch. The mere catalogue of Willy Wilson's triumphs during the short space of two years reads like a list of the Academy's athletic events. He appeared in basketball, baseball and football, in gym. work, boxing, pole-vaulting and tennis: in all he was successful, in some he was a star. His work at third base on the Academy baseball team, as forward on the basket- 959 ball team, and as quarter on the football team, showed his remarkable versatility and athletic ability, while his knowledge of the game kept even with' his performance. Both knowledge and performance easily raised him to the position of star athlete of the Academy. But underneath this athletic proficiency lay something of infinitely greater worth. The awful accident which transformed this perfect specimen of physical manhood into a hopeless invalid disclosed a character builded and cemented upon a foundation of beauty and strength. Incapable of motion or of feeling, but with a mind clear and conscious of the utter hopelessness of the future, he bore his lot with grit, with cheer, and without the least complaint. The interests of his active life remained with him unimpaired, and though the body wasted, the brave spirit within kept his mind alert and keen. He had won our respect and friendship from the start, but he gained our love and admiration from the day of his accident. In the ancient fable the Hindu Sage commands his son: "Bring me of the fruit of that tree, and break it open. What dost thou find?" "A stonef' "Break open the stone. What findest thou now?" "The seed." "Break the seed and tell me what seest thou?', "Nothing" "My son, where thou seest nothing, there is the hand of God." Surely, that Hand, from the Reveille of life at birth to the sounding of Taps at death, reaches all with fateful but with kindly touch. i t V ' :"i'C ?,f f f " 1 V QQ et '- it gi, ,.., .a:gg "f: f,'3 Q60 .iv wiv, A4844 MW' 261 c,L1.jp.1uWJl, fb Q63 BASEBALL SQUAD-1909 215 mmanowu. Baseball N 1908 our baseball team was considered the best among eastern colleges, but the season of 1909 was a disastrous one from start to finish. Fultz did his very best and no one knows more baseball or can teach it better than Dave, but the fact seemed to be that we had few men of the first calibre and that the team as a whole was unable to "get togetherl' for consistent team-work. Four men of the old team were lost by graduation. Of these, Stiles was perhaps the greatest man who had ever played on a Navy nine, and one who was badly missed at first base for the whole season, although Jones played well after he became accustomed to the posi- tion. Bacon's place at second was not filled until it was given Abbott, near mid-season, and Pop Gillam was out of the game a long time. Wilsoii did not field his position at third as well as usual, but his batting was at all times excellent. Eddie Lange, out in left field, was at all times- Eddie Lange, and the bleachers smiled whenever a ball was LT. VERNON knocked anywhere in his vicinity, but the two other fielders BnoNsoN 263 f , 7 , .75 L A N G E were problematic, right field never being really filled, and center only by the sacrifice of one of our best pitchers. Lanphier, Meade, and Anderson were all steady, reliable men in the box, and Hambsch behind the plate was one of the best catchers on the diamond. The season opened with our old friends the Johnnies, March 24th. Ragged fielding gave them the game by 7-5, but the defeat was not seriously considered, as most people attributed it to the raw weather and our lack of outdoor practice. On Saturday, the 27th, Gallaudet was easily beaten, but this could not be hailed as a proof of our strength as they were far below our class. However, when Maryland Agricul- tural could get but one hit off' Meade and lVakeman, while we ran up seven runs, every- body was hopeful and we seemed in a fair way to have 4 ,. f a very successful season. mdk' V ,RQ Tv Then the big fellows, making their Southern trip ' , i il!

We scored again in the sixth, Y but they earned a run in the seventh and scored another in the eighth on an lf outfield error. We had a chance in our half, but Lange was caught at third f!

If The next day Princeton led up to the eighth inning, when Jones with f his triple to the sco1'eboard evened up matters. In the ninth with two out and two on bases, Wilson threw into the bleachers, and a hit to centerfield ANnnnsoN gave them a total of three for the inning. VVe rallied, but poor work on bases threw the game away. Anderson did fine work in the box but was helpless in the face of the support he received. After these four straight de- feats the team got busy, and in the Columbia game scored five runs the first inning. Anderson allowed but four hits, while the batting of Wil- son was a feature of the game. Every team we played seemed to have a good pitcher. Bucknell surely did, for Hambsch was the only man to get a hit. They scored MIDDIES, STAND four times early in the game, but could do nothing after the fourth, when Anderson went into the box. The Pennsylvania game is usually very good and last year's was no exception. Pennsy had good chances to score in each of the first five innings, but splendid fielding rl , ' " I X x just cut them short of a run each time. In the ninth .

Six scattered hits in ten innings . showed the ability of Lanphier in the pitching line. University of Maryland next came down and though Meade pitched in his best form they shut us out by a L LANPHIEIL 265 score of 2-0. North Carolina and West Virginia followed, and each lowered the Navy hopes after a hard battle. However, to even things, we took the sting of it out on our old friends the John- nies by a score of 3 to 1, and after the disastrous W Mount VVashington game we beat successively s,1,AND,.CL0SE To Rutgers, Rockhill, St. John's again and Dickinson. lVIaryland Agricultural College, whom we had heaten for two years, turned the tables on us with a score of 8 to 3. Meade held Walhrook down to four hits, while we hit safely nine times for five runs. Wilson had three hits, one a triple, all of which counted in the scoring. Our last home game was with the Carlisle Indians. In the fifth Gillam hunted, WllS0ll singled past third and Jones knocked out a safe infield hit. On Abbott's long Hy to right Pop crossed the plate, making the only run scored in the game. Next day the team left for the Point, resolved to make up for a bad season by winning the big game with the Army. The story of that game is told elsewhere, but the result and in fact the game itself was STAND-MIDDIES LEAVING what was largely to be expected from the constant shake-up and the petty dissensions which had so weakened the Navy team. That we can't play without playing together was clearly shown, and we are sure that under Pop's 'shrewd guidance we are going to have more team Work and less individual aspiration. 266 THE BASEBALL GAME if EY, fellows!

The next morning, Saturday, a little more practice, but not enough to tire the team out, and recreation in the form of a dress parade by the Pointers, and a fine sight it was, 2 vered, and soon the Navy baseball team, clothed and in its right mind, began to appear. The night had been hot and the car jammed, each berth holding two occupants--that is, all but the one Crofty held down,-and Pop Gillam had slept in the little hammock, under the impression that it was for use in hot weather. In a half an hour the team had piled into the after a good breakfast in the cadet mess hall NAVY PRACTICING 67 XVEST POINT GAME too, especially for the Navy contingent, thor- oughly enjoying their novel role as spectators in a parade. At two the stands began to fill and Navy took the field for a short warming up. Ander- son was to pitch, and by his excellent season he had undoubtedly earned the prize. Dave Fultz issued his last instructionsg the ground rules, of which there were myriad owing to the smallness of the field, were explained, Hambsch and Meyer tossed up and Navy took the field. The NAVY BENCH Pointers, all in full dress, came down with a long corps yell and the game started. The first inning nothing happened. In the second Harrison, the first man to bat, smashed out a liner that placed him safely on second, from which Lyman advanced him to third. Devers sent a high fly into Langeis hand, but before it could be thrown in the Army man had crossed the plate. Then for three innings it was a piteher's battle, with the advan- tage with the Army. In the sixth, however, Hyatt got to first, Meyer was retired on a pop- fly, Mountford advanced the pitcher to third on a safe hit and made second on Surles' sacri- fice. Harrison knocked out an easy one, but Irwin dropped it, and by the time it got to first the blue-gray of the Army was at each corner of the diamond. At bat was Lyman, a Hawaiian, and a function, or fifth class man. The little Hyloojian let a couple go by, then picking a good one drove a liner just above Abbott's head and out into deep center. When the dust cleared away he was perched on third . and three Army men had crossed the slab. The Army stands were bedlam and over in one corner a group of faithful Navy people were giving a four-N yell and adjuring the Blue and Gold to ARMY BENCH get busy. In the seventh it Seemed as if the tide had turned. Wilson, Jones and Lange filled up the bases and Hambsch hit the ball away over be- yond left field. It ought to have been at least a three-bagger, but Surles by a great leap made' a left-handed catch that was really phenomenal, and when Willie was thrown out at third our chance was gone. By a hit and a succession of errors Ulloa added another to the Army's tally in their half. Irwin made a safe hit in the eighth, and by clever base stealing and a hit by Gillam came in. The Army, however, lowered our hopes by scor- ing Whiteside and the ubiquitous' Harrison.

Soon the entire Navy contingent was out there and was being made to forget its recent defeat in the open-hearted reception accorded them by their victorious hosts. That night there was a hop, and be sure that no midshipman stood out a dance as long as a cadet had a pretty partner. Next day the entire corps turned out to say their final good-byes, and under the direction of their cheer-leader cheered each Navy man by name.

This enabled "Dick" to watch the crews as a whole and to get the eights to rowing together before the outside work was begun. During the early part of llarch the Varsity crew was able to get out on the river frequently, but the Plebes were kept on the machines and in the barge until near the end of the month. After a few weeks of outdoor practice the Varsity crew, which rowed in all three of the races, was definitely selected. Right there was where "Dick" ran up against a pretty hard proposition. He had his Varsity crew all right, each man of it was a splendid oarsman and the crew as a whole rowed in form seldom seen so early in the season, but the second crew was weak, so weak, in fact, that they could not push the Varsity in a practice. livery crew, no i matter how good, must have, to be successful, many hard-fought races in practice before ready to face another Varsity crew. nossiem. Notwithstanding this difheulty, "Dick,' turned out one of the 1m1T'1'A1N 273 1 best crews the Navy has ever had. y April 24th, the day of the first race, saw them in fine form, but still lacking that ability of spurting hard at the finish that has char- acterized our crews for the last few years. The race, a four-cornered affair between the New York Uni- versity, the Arundel Boat Club and the Navy first and third crews, was an easy victory for the Navy crews. N We gained a half length on New FIRST CREW IN BOATHOUSE York University at the start, and from that time gained steadily until the end of the race. Our stroke was very low throughout the race, being only twenty-five to the minute in the middle distances and from thirty to thirty-five in the last half mile. Our third c1'ew, rowing a slightly higher stroke, easily pulled away from the visitors, and at the finish had six lengths of open water on New York University. The first boat led the third by four lengths, while New York University had a length the better of the Arundels. The visiting crews, although losing at every stroke, seemed unable to keep the stroke above thirty-one to the minute. A head wind and the fact that the Navy was not rushed at all accounted for the slow time-nine minutes one second. On May 8th the Navy won a man's size hard-fought race when she defeated Columbia by one and one-half boat-lengths. The conditions for the race were almost perfect, with no wind and very little current. i The Navy jumped into the lead at the start and slowly increased it until the mile and . jiri., a quarter mark was reached, when Columbia began to gain.

The following Saturday the Potomac Boat Club came down confident of a victory over our first and second crews, but the race turned out to be nearly a repetition of the New York University procession. Both of our crews got the jump on the Boat Club at the start, and both ran away from them in the first half mile. There the Varsity slackened the stroke, rowing just hard enough to keep a few lengths ahead of the second boat, who finished four lengths behind them and two ahead of the Potomac crew. Time, 8 minutes IM seconds. Our crews now put in two weeks of good hard practice in preparation for the last and most important race of all, that with Syracuse. Our opponents came down on Thursda.y, May 20th, but were unable to get in any practice on account of the very unfavorable weather conditions. Saturday, the scheduled day, was about the worst for a race that the season had seeng cold, raining and blowing half a gale out of the north. Nevertheless at six a flaw in the wind seemed to justify getting the shells in, and accordingly they were towed to the foot of the course and rowed the rest of the way. Both crews got off well together, the Navy having a little the better of it for a while, but at the half mile both were rowing even, Syracuse pulling a slightly higher stroke, and keeping beautifully together. At the mile the visitors set the stroke up still more and gradually began to draw ahead. l.'

TRACK SQUAD-1909 x Track RACK is a branch of sport which in the past six years has risen from a. position of unimportance to a place in the front rank of Academy athletics. Before 1904 we met no outside teams, and our efforts were confined to interclass meets. Since that year, however, our rise has been steady and rapid, until now we are credited with one of the strongest teams in the East, and have records which compare favorably with those of the larger institutions. In 1909, this high standard established in the past was upheld, and the season was, as a whole, successful, though we suffered the only defeat in years in tl1e meet with Pennsylvania. Many of the old records were 'fx broken or equaled, while the new material discovered promises N great things for the future. Most of the records being pretty high, the Athletic Asso- f ',1Q5f- V X ciation gave the green N to the men who made the best record 1,1 for the season in their events. 'ii With Capt. "Mike" Robertson as leader, preliminary l, V'i'i , training began early in the fall of 1908, and from the time the Wit it call for candidates was made, every Thursday saw a large U-5 LT.-coM.H1NEs squad trotting around the gymnasium track or plowing FLANIGAN 281 through the mud and sand of Maryland on long cross-country runs. The first idea the Brigade had of the team in prospect was formed February 28th when the first indoor meet ever held here, an interclass affair, was pulled of in the Gymnasium. In this, no "N" men competed, as the meet was primarily for the purpose of getting a line on the new material. The BOUCHERS DICKENS, DALTON-HURDLING result was a victory for the Second Class, with the Plebes a poor second. The show- ing of the Plebe contestants, especially that of Dalton in the dashes, was most satisfactory. About a month later, outdoor practice began on the new field back of the Armory. At first the weather was bad and the new track soft and slow, but with the coming of the April sun, . E I , these troubles vanished and the team began to 9 'Nl - . get into form. Scotty McMasters, who joined the squad about the start of outdoor practice, was soon up to his old tricks again and had the men in tip-top shape for the opening of the season. The first meet on the schedule was the COMSTOCK9 ROBINSON, DICKENS'-HURDLING annual interclass contest held on the 24th of April. For great and sustained interest this was about the best of the year, as it was a neck and neck race between the second and third classes from start to finish. The result was undecided until the end of the last event on K ' . the card, the relay race, which 1910 won after .I S . 'f an exciting struggle, only to be disqualified at the tape. This gave 1911 the victory by three points with 1909 third and 1912 in the rear. The next Saturday we held our first out- side meet and easily defeated our old rivals HURDLES-PENNSY MEET from Baltimore, Johns Hopkins. From the 282 start the visitors had not the ghost of a show and the Navy rolled up point after point almost at will, although in a very few events there was an interesting struggle. - On the eighth, Columbia came down to try her strength and kindly added her name to our list of victories. We had to break two records and tie to win, but the final score was perfectly satisfying to every Navy rooter. Donelson, in beating out Babcock by a short half inch in HALF MILE-1-ENNSY MEET the broad jump, went 22-87M inches, 4:15 inches better than his record of two weeks' standing. Carey performed in his usual spectacular man- ner, tying his record of 9 4-5 for the 100 and - 1 H' V . making a new one of 21 3-5 in the 220. . I ' 0 . T ' ' A Our next prospective victims, Pennsylvania, ' V 1 did not prove so submissive as they might have been, and, in fact, evinced quite an inordi- , it pls! , M v 'I 7 , will ay nate fondness for first place. They had to if ni l L"g "1 fffff 'A' "' smash some of our records to get those first i places, but when the carnage was over, the score showed the Navy decidedly on the wrong side. ' ' i We had the right of way in the dashes, MILE RUN"'PENNSY MEET though, where the Quakers could not touch us, Carey winning the 100 and the 220 in even time, and J. H. Smith the 4:40. The only other first we took was in the broad jump, which Dalton came out of the hospital to cap- ture. This meet, our first defeat in years, was the last one on the regular schedule to be held, as the following Saturday, when we were expect- ing an interesting contest with Princeton, rain stopped everything. On the 29th, the day of the West Point game, 1909 came oft' victors in a rather impromptu class meet, whose principal excuse TWO-MILE nUN-PENNSY MEET 288 for being was to interest the crowd watching for the fateful tidings from the Hudson to appear on the score-board. So ended the season of 1909, successful as regards scores made and records broken, but far more so in the way of new material discov- ered which will carry the Navy Blue and Gold on to victory in 1910. The Plebe track meet held during the summer had resulted in some really excellent LEE AND HIS PROCESSION IN THE 220 performances, and immediately on his return Captain Donelson began to get "dope" on promising candidates. In the Interclass meet held on the 26th of February the Fourth Class A proved their strength by snatching victory from the very grasp of 1910, and there is no doubt that they will make a lot of veterans hustle for their seats at the table this spring. Flanigan, whom Donny with his customary astuteness had appointed to fill Hal Whiting's place as manager, has taken hold of his duties with the same spirit, interest and love of hard work that he has displayed in all athletics in which he has taken part. The authorities did NICK WINNING HIS HEAT not think it wise to allow us to enter the Inter- collegiate meet, in spite of Pat's earnest-lobbying, but at least we can show our mettle in the dual matches down here. With Donelson, Carey, Dalton, Smith and Nicholas, we should cer- tainly be able to make a place for ourselves way I up near the top of the big universities, and if hard work and cool headwork count for any- thing, we know Donny will put us there. Already the Scotclnnan has been hard at work on the track, filling in and getting every- thing in shape, and the large squad that turns out every day, and the much larger one that reports on Thursdays, bodes well. Stands have been erected so that those who turn out to en- courage the Blue and Gold in this form of A s'rUDY IN EXPRESSION 984 THE PRIDE OF MARYLAND endeavor will not have to stand in the hot sun and peer over each other's shoulders. Mention of track ath- letics would be incomplete without an acknowledg- ment of our indebted- ness to Lieut.-Commander Hines, the representative for track with this year and last. He has worked for the team with all his might and has by his characteristic kindness en- deared himself to every WUKHPQVQ M,CAU GH EY PUTTING SHOT man on the squad. His efforts are shown in the splendid work that his branch of sport per formed last year and in the unusual interest displayed in track and field this year, and the Brigade is sure that he will be rewarded with an even more successful season this coming spring M.. ,, -.

FEXCING SQUAD-1910 i Fencing HE lack of interest in fencing and its very limited field 1nay be traced to two causes: one is the small amount of knowledge pertaining to it and the other is the fact that in these days of strenuous sports which require beef and brawn a feat of deftness and agility arouses scant interest. Fencing, as an exercise, is just what one has a mind to make itg it can be very effeminate, or it can be as wholesomely tiring as any other form of exercise, POWNALL but as a contest it is a competition that requires not only years of patient, arduous labor, but a mental clear- ness which only a perfect physical condition can bring. Up to the last two years fencing has been con- ducted here on pretty much hit-or-miss principles. 'When Lieutenant Johnson took hold of it there was no system, there were no available precedents and each man did about as he pleased in the way of preparing for a match. Our instructorsiwere insufficient, the team was run as a graft and things were pretty well disorgan- ized generally. Lieutenant Johnson threw himself into the work with an ardor and patience that few men would have displayed and succeeded in establishing a definite program to be followed in training fi team. Last sum- 989 LT. JOHNSON mer he influenced the addition to the staff of swordmasters of Messrs. Fournon and Bartoli, who, with Mr. Heintz, form the best set of inst1'uctors in the country. The members of the squad who were likely candidates for the first team took their foils and masks on the cruise and practiced frequently, and as soon as the academic year opened Captain Merrill called for candidates. In a speech in Recreation Hall, he said: "I know that we are not a major sport, nor are we an ex- citing sport to watch, but people, we are one of the two sports that willlgo up against the Army this year, we are a sport which has lost to the Army for the last two years and it is with the idea of beat- ing West Point this year, and next year, and the yea1' after that I want you to come out." , TEAINI-'INTERCOLLEGIATE cnanirioxs, 1910 The Squad that responded was far too big to handle and accordingly was weeded out until about thirty were left. These were divided among the instructors and all worked hard and conscientiously each day at their monotonous tasks of punching targets or going through complicated attacks with the swordmasters. In January Pownall and Merrill went to New York to attend the meeting of the association and there proposed the change from the six-team finals usually held to the four-team round-robin adopted this year. This required a quadrangular meet at West Point and Annapolis on March 19th, the two winners at each place to meet in New York. A new set of rules emanating from the Navy contingent was also adopted. ' Captain Merrill was confronted with the task of selecting from totally green material, including himself, a team which should go up against the Ar1ny's veteran team, weakened by the loss of Sears, but still having Cocroft and Sohlberg, the two individual champions of last year. Larimer was the best man on the mat during the early season. Hall was at all times an unknown quantity, and Merrill was alternately very good and very weak. Scott, who was developed in one year, gave excellent promise which his late season performances quite fulfilled. 990 The season started with Princeton, a weak trio which Merrill, Larimer and Scott easily defeated 9-0. Then came a series of club and professional matches in which the team, some- times containing Scott, sometimes including Hall, did not do very well as a whole. An excep- tion to this was the ease of the New York Feneers' Club, a very strong team, which, though winning by 6-3, were at all times pushed so closely that it was most exciting. After this meet Larimer developed trouble with his eye and was ordered to the Naval Hos- pital in Washington. His absence materially weakened the team, but gave an excellent oppor- tunity for trying out the rest of the men. On the 19th of February Columbia was defeated 7-2, the following week Wendell captured Pennsylvania's only three bouts and the 5th of March we met Cornell. This team got four bouts out of the nine, due to their having two left-handers, and to the fact that Merrill was fencing very poorly. On the 12th, the last dual meet, we defeated Yale 8-1, Merrill losing the only bout. March 19th, in the armory, we met Pennsylvania and Columbia, Princeton being unable to come on account of illness. Wendell was quite the star of the meet, winning all his bouts, although he was hard pushed by Scott. Out of the eighteen bouts apiece Navy won 13, Pennsylvania won 8, and Columbia won 6. The following Thursday the team left for New York. Friday evening the teams met in the Hotel Astor and fenced the first set of bouts. The Navy trio had received every possible bit of coaching and attention that they needed and the rest was up to them. Nerved up to the highest pitch, they went on the mats determined to fight every inch and when the thirty bouts were over we had the jump on the Army and the teams stood: Navy, 10g Army, 9, Pennsylvania, 81 Cor- nell, 3. After a hard night, in which excitement worsted the desire to sleep, the Navy contingent p went over for the afternoon bouts. There was some delay and when they did begin the bouts Navy i seemed to show the effects of the previous even- ' ing's pace, and fenced badly. Luckily we only had one bout with Army that afternoon, and a little spurt enabled us to finish the leg with 13 bouts, while Army had 12, Pennsylvania 10, and Cornell 7. The great event of that afternoon was Scott's bout with Wendell, both men having clear slates. Norm pushed him the limit for two ties, but the southpaw finally captured the decision. That night the finals were held in the grand JOHNSON CUP 291 ballroom of the Astor, before a large and interested audience. The team had made up their sleep and were out for blood. Scott lost to Cocroft in a very close fight, putting Army one in the lead for total bouts and making the dual score of Army and Navy four to four. In the seventh bout Dargue was up for West Point against Merrill. L The Army man was a little excited and after four minutes of rather wild fencing the judges gave the bout to Merrill. This gave us the lead again and beat Army five to four. Hall and Scott clinched our hold on the trophy by winning their next bouts in excellent shape from Espindola and Parker. Army had two more to go but couldn't win anyhow, and Navy had the honors all to themselves. A big dance followed and so ended what was probably the closest, cleanest and most exciting intercollegi- ate meet ever held. It would be quite impossible to speak of the fencing team without extending the thanks of the Brigade and the team to Lieutenant Johnson. In every conceivable way he did all in his power for the team and for fencing. He offered a cup to the Plebe champion, he invited Seiors Ascension and Castillo down as his guests, that the squad might see the Spanish school, and he was responsible for the team's going to New York this year, and, incidentally, for the number of grafters that went with it. When he leaves he will turn over to his successor ma- terial for teams for three years to come, picked out and developed through his care and efforts. Assistant Swordmaster Fournon had the instruction of the team and to him is due not only their mechanical improvement Cand anyone who saw the work of the team at the beginning of the year knows what that isj, but the mental attitude as well, because the association with such a refined, pleasant gentleman and man's man, who worked through illness and trouble even harder than did his pupils, and who shared with them the joys of victory or the sorrows of defeat, could not help but advance them towards the goal of true sportsmanship and man- hood. a ' Buddy Pownall, who held down the precarious and inglorious job of manager, performed his duties with the zeal and fidelity that one can always rely on him for. Capable and willing he performed the jobs of manager, assistant manager, and half of those of captain, to the entire satisfaction of everybody concerned.

The season of 1909 was the fourth season for the U. S. N. A. RiHe Team- The first call for candidates was issued on the eighth of February and about eighty names were placed on the squad. Lieu- tenant Hilary Williams, himself an expert rifle shot and a member of the Navy team which in 1908 won the National Match at Camp Perry, was in charge, and to his tireless efforts the phenomenal development made by our team was due. On lilarch 10th Hosford was elected captain of the team and the next day active work was begun when the squad crossed the Severn and spent its first afternoon on the rifle range. For nearly three weeks the squad went over every day in the week except Sunday, giving up baseball games, Saturday liberty, and fussing, for no man make 200 YARDS s the rifle team except by the hardest kind of work 4...- 800 YARDS S? and self-denial. On March 27th about half the candidates were dropped, leav- ing some forty men from whom to pick a team of twelve men and five substitutes. On May Sth the first match was shot with the team of the National Guard of Maryland. It was a close match, but was won by the Naval Academyg score: Mary- land National Guard, 3,044+g U. S. N. A., 3,055. On May 15th the Academy team had an even closer match with the National Guard of the District of Colum- bia. The result was not certain until the last man on each team had fired, when it was found that the midshipmen led by four points. A miss on the part of one man would have lost the match. Score: D. C. National Guard 2,013, U. S. N. A. 2,017. The most important match of the season was fired on May 22d with the Seventy-first New York National Guard. This match has been shot every year since 1906 and is for the possession of a trophy cup given by Lieutenant-Colonel J. H. Wells of the Seventy-first. The first year 200 YARDS it was won by the National Guard, the second by the Naval Academy, the third time by the Seventy-first again, so this season it was our turn to win and we did. The shooting was at two hundred, six hundred, and eight hundred, slow fire, and at two lmmlred, rapid fire. The midshipmen outshot the soldiers at all ranges, and two men outshot Sergeant Doyle of the visi- tors, reputed to be one of the best and most reliable shots in the world. The final score was: Seventy-first National Guard 2,4f52, U. S. N. A. 2,529. On May 29th the last match of the season was shot, a return match with the Maryland National Guard, fired at their range at Glen Burnie. The National Guard proved too strong for the midshipmen and won the match by a safe margin. Score: Maryland National Guard 2,929, U. S. N. A. 2,8451 This was the last match in which members of 1909 shot, owing to their graduation five days later. However, Captain Jack had picked out the material from the other classes of which he proposed to build a team worthy of the Naval Academy. The mem- bers of the team i U I -. . . embarked on the 111 fl ll ... AQ. ' summer cruise with the rest of the midshipmen but were de- tached in the early part of July. They re- ported at Wake- field, Mass., and remained there until it was time to leave for the National Match at Camp Perry. 600 YAR DS 297 cam reaav Mmreijipes AMP PERRY is the real reason for the existence of the Rifle Team. From the beginning of practice in the spring through all the spring matches and through the summer work the goal of all ambitions is the National Match at Camp Perry, for it is at Camp Perry that the expert rifle shots of the United States come together, that honors are won and that the champion rifle - y team of tl1e country is determined. To win the National Match, what glory could be greater than this? The Naval Academy team was detached from the Practice Squadron on the 9th of July and ordered to VVakefield, Mass., but owing to the necessity of changing cars in Boston it got pretty well separated and arrived in Wzzkefield all day Satur- day, July 10th. Although generally regarded as a pleasant outing the work was of the hardest kind. By Monday the camp had been settled and all were ready to begin shooting on the Bay State Rifle Range, where, after two weeks of steady practice, the New England matches took place. These lasted a week, and though the team did not particularly distinguish itself, great improvement was shown over the work done in the spring matches in Annap- olis. With two weeks re- maining before the depart- ure for Camp Perry, the team fairly lived on bulls- eyes, and by the 17th of July every one was ready and first place in the Na- tional Match was not by any means an undreamed of possibility. The trip to Camp Perry was made in a special train carrying the NDUTCHMANU AND HFATH Navy, the Massachusetts GETTING THINGS STRAIGHT 298 and the Naval A 1 . A it 1 Academy teams, .V , . , I 4, ,M and was en oyed in much the same manner as the trip to "Philly', for the Army game. On Sun- day evening the t e a m arrived, pitched c a m p, and on Monday morning began shooting in the 0 h io S t a t e Matches. T h e following m e n , I C 0 m P 0 S C d the p THE NAVAL ACADEMY TEAM team: Hosford Gibson, Brown, M. S., Ruhl, Lang, Bradley, F., Birdsall, Thomas, G, Eu fCapt.j, Roesch, Badger, Bartlett, H. T., Leidel, Saunders, H. E. These matches lasted all week, the mid- shipmen taking places in every one. The most notable event was the winning of the Gov- ernor's Match by Roesch from some of the best professional shots in the world. After another week of hard work Captain Jack decided that a little recreation was needed-something to take their minds off shooting for a couple of days before the big meet -so it was settled to accept the invitation of Colonel Hayes to a house party at his home in Fairmont. The trip was made in automobiles on Saturday afternoon. In the evening a big dinner followed by a dance at which the stag line was composed entirely of girls-not that there were any bricks there, but because one midshipman experienced difficulty whenever hg tried to dance with more than two girls at the same time. There was a general social gathering on Sunday afternoon, and it was with deep regret that the team left in the evening after giving Colonel Hayes a four-N yell and proposing . a rousing toast to the girls of Fairmont. On Monday morning the National Matches began. At the end of the two hun- dred yards, slow fire, the Academy team was second and only two points behind the Navy team, which led. At the end of the slow firing the midshipmen were in fifth place, but everything was going smoothly and all ex- pected to pull up in the rapid fire stages. At that is '1 " 9 - WATCHING HFA'l'H sHoo'r 299 Expcl These Also N 'l'HE rapid-flre match of the National Rifle Asso- ciation meeting at Camp Perry last month, the score of the team representing the United States Naval Academy was thrown out because the cadets had. re- moved the stop pins of their rifle bolts,.thus artificially qui:-kening the action and taking unfair advantage of ull the other competitors.

The dther day some West Point cadets 'were expelled for hazing land rightly so. no doubts I do not question the Justnegs of the punishmentj-mere boyish pranks: but here in the Naval Academy representatives is re- yealed the meanest type of deceit--cheating an opponent in open contest-which reaches to the very essence of manhood. for of all obnoxious beings the liar is the most intolerable. Our national academies should be cleansed of such hloodfrand without delay. Courtesy of Collier-'s Weekly time occurred the unfortunate incident which was later the cause of so much discussion. A number of new Spring- fields had been received at the Academy while the team was on the cruise and the gunners-mate at the range had, as was the custom with new pieces, filed down the boltstop. The range officer took exception to their use and caused runs shot by them to be thrown out. He further insisted on weighing trigger- pulls, making some of the team begin firing with pieces locked, and even after new boltstops had been inserted he dis- qualified two more pieces. The follow- ing extracts from a prominent Army of'licer's letter to the "Army and Navy Journal" are quoted to show the views of an unprejudiced eyewitness of the whole affair' "Two of these rifles, with new, perfect boltstops, were rejected, after reference to the Chief Ordnance Officer of the National Match, Major Phillips. The runs made by these guns were thrown out. I saw these rifles just as they were usedg the boltstops were in perfect condition and accomplished perfectly their function. When the run was finished one of these rifles was handed by Lieutenant Williams to Major Phillips, he apparently not rec- ognizing it: on being asked what was its fault, if any, he examined it, and replied that so far as he could deter- mine it was in perfect condition and pronounced the boltstop all right.

In closing too much cannot be said in praise of Lieu- tenant Hilary Williams. The success of the team was due to his hard work and personal magnetism. As a splendid officer, a perfect gentleman, and a friend to every man on the team and in the Brigade, we give all honor and respect to "Captain Jack." 300 ff -at ' 15.2.

The Thursday afternoon cross-country hikers were more than a little responsible for its first squad, but once started the virile qualities and the real interest of the game soon brought it into the serious regard of a small number of enthusiasts who worked hard and conscientiously at it all spring. These faithful players were rewarded for their labors by the creation, for them, of an orange LNT. This meant much, for it showed that the Athletic Association was in favor of the game and meant to encourage it. The next year mo1'e interest was aroused andia goodly squad turned out. With many of the old team as a nucleus, Captain Welsh began to select his material, and soon had an aggre- gation which was most creditable considering the very small amount of experience which they had had with the game. After a few weeks of banging each other about the heads with their overgrown tennis rackets, the team sallied forth to meet Johns Hopkins, of Baltimore, great admirers of the game and for five years the intercollegiate champions. We were defeated, but out their more experienced opponents in the the way our team played an uphill game, tiring second half, showed the Navy fighting spirit. In the second game we were again beaten, this time by the Mount Washington Club, composed of former Hopkins stars, their superior skill ALIQXANDEIL "hoc" BRANHAM UGUSU 301 s'rAn'r-HOPKINS' GAME "Amie" more than offsetting the improvement Navy had been making since the Hopkins match. This improvement continued so steadily that in our next game the Mount Washington Jr.'s were beaten easily by a score of five to one. I The big game of the season, though, was that with Harvard, as this college held the 1,61 LACROSSE TEABI 302 championship of the North. In addition, we had so many contests with Harvard in other ln'ancl1es of sport that every one was glad to see a new one added to the list. Crimson came down to give us the hardest fight they could put up, and Navy went out on the field determined to win or know the reason why. In the first half there was little to choose hetween the teams so far as skill went. Both teams were doing extremely accurate and heady team work, Harvard LACROSSE SQUAD seemed slightly faster while the Navy played a more aggressive game. At the end of the half the score stood two to two. In the second half, however, Navy came out with blood in its eye, and in a very short time had set a pace that was too much for the sons of John Harvard. Crimson was kept on the defensive throughout the last of the half, while some very pretty goal shooting added four to our score. Our opponents had made one, so when the game ended the 303 . . score stood six to three in our favor. This one game, more than anything else, put lac1'osse on a firm footing at the Acadelny, and having demon- strated that it was a game which we could play, and play well, its popu- RUNNING IT DOWN larity was assured. The last game of the season was with Baltimore City College. We had scheduled a match with Columbia, who had an excellent team, but as they were forced to cancel their Southern trip we had secured the Baltimore bunch as a makeshift. Navy again showed their endurance, and after a rather strenuous game came out victors by five to two. Much credit for the successful spring is due to Mr. J. Allan Dill, a former Hopkins captain, who coached our team, and to "Pee-wee" Welsh, our diminutive captain-manager. The Athletic Association gave the follow- ing men the LNT: Welsh, '09, Webster, '10, Hibbard, '11, Alexander, '10, Branham, '10, Gray, '10, Richardson, '10, Young, '10, Douglas, '11 ,.Ford, 4 "GUS" MAKES GOOD H '11, Hill, '11 , Perley, '11, LaMountain, '12. All of these except the first three are still at the Academy, and with increased interest and "Doc" Branham as captain, there is no reason why we should not have a team that will stand as high in its sport as basketball and gymnasium did in theirs. - N E The great trouble lies in the number of men required to play it, as it necessitates large guarantees to visiting teams, and lacrosse has not yet reached the rank of a major sport as far as dividing the money appropriations goes. However, Alexander has gotten some excellent games on his schedule despite this handicap, which is partly due to the sportsmanship of several colleges. Branham is working hard, and nothing but the ban on mid-week games stands in the way of the development of this sport, which, though still young here, already has won a deserved place because of the qualities of strength, endurance and skill which it brings out. 42 if P 304 . .'1'M""E?f l:54s2:2.2'.-.J ' .2i'."?+ A .. . .- " -- - - -. . . .rfffeff 'www--,W ff ra i a?'affi.. -as va - ' ' - ' 4 - - ' f -1 ' . .. za.-as.1a2"a1s'fai'.sn ll C'liiA,,!,rr-4.

W , HE basketball season was the most successful in the history of the game at the Naval Academy. We won the Southern championship-the biggest thing we had a chance for,-every game on the schedule save one, and scored nearly three times as many points as our opponents. The opening game with Baltimore Medical College showed material, but a woeful need of development. The next, against Pennsylvania, we lost. Neither team was as yet in any kind of form and the game was scarce a fair criterion of the merits of the two. As it was we out- scored them on field goals and excelled them in floorwork only to lose through too much foul- ing. Christmas week games, which we had scheduled with Columbia and New York Universi- ties, were cancelled. By not being able to play these two games-especially the one with Columbia-we lost ou1' chance for a high standing, perhaps the highest among Eastern teams. The two weeks were put in in the best sort of practice, and it was at this time of the season that the team "struck its stride." We won easily from the strong C. C. N. Y. team, and two weeks later met Georgetown in the biggest game of the year. The contest was even and hard-fought until toward the mid- dle of the second half, when the Navy braced and by perfect team play threw goal after goal, I.'l'.'C0 M M AND ICR BRANHAINI BASKETBALL TICABI TRENCH 305 1!ASKl'l'1'I!ALT.

The team did not have a schedule that did it justice. We believe that we could have defeated any team in the country -- principally the Army, who refused to play us. As a reward for their excellent record the team was awarded an "N" in place of the usual "BND," It would have been NW had we had the chance.

HIC success of this yearls gym. team has been phenomenal, even among the striking array of successes that our minor teams have carried off in the last year. Handicapped by the loss of several of his ablest veterans, Captain 'LaMont turned out an aggrega- tion which whipped to a standstill every team that would come down to meet them. On every apparatus the superiority of the Navy has been so apparent that there can be little doubt as to their right to the title of collegiate champions. The season included the hardest schedule in the East, comprising the winners of the first KILDUFF meets. It also supplied the team with new and extreme- ly attractive uniforms which enabled our men worthily, to represent the institu- tion. Captain LaMont won fifty-six out of Navy's total score for the season of one hundred and thirty-one points. His work on paral- lel bars, side horse and hori- six places in the Intercollegiates of last year. Of these, Navy defeated Yale, Pennsylvania, New York University and Rutgers by safe margins. Princeton and Columbia were unable to come to Annapolis as arranged, but were easily defeated by Yale and Pennsylvania, respectively, so we could probably have done the same. Yale, whom we defeated by a score of 31 to 1-L, later won first place in this yea1"s Intercollegiates, held at Princeton. The cause for the success of the season is largely due to the untiring efforts of our coach, Mr. Maug, whose knowledge of, and ability in, gymnastics is unequaled. The Navy Athletic Association realized this year the value of the gym. team, and, together with the Midshipmen's Association, offered welcome support and e n c o u rage- m e n t b y i in e a n s of . . l training ta- Q l bles and i ap H1'0pl'l2l.- t i o n s for additional GYMNASIUM TEAM 307 808 zontal bars, stamped him as one of the most finished amateurs the country has seen-certainly the best the Academy will put out for a long time. Kieffer found time between pictures to exhibit several mighty fine fashions in tumbling, and Gillette tied him in number of points won for the season. Byrd was a star on the rings, and his graceful work brought in a total of fifteen points i11 the four meets. Zacharias, Bates, W'addell, Clark and Refer also won honor and points for the Navy in more than one match. At the end of the season the regular inter-class gymnastic meet was held, the third class coming out winners, although Lahlont, winning all the points for the First Class himself, was close enough to give them a bad scare. The second and fourth classes were badly to the rear. The finals of the intercompany boxing attracted a great deal of attention, and Dick Myers proved to be a star perfo1'mer. VVinning the light-heavy by default, he stepped into the heavy- heavy and in the finals was pitted against Reinieke, last year's champion, who outweighed l1i1n twenty pounds or more. The Redhead was out of condition and though he showed better staying powers Dick's powerful blows and heady attacks gave him the decision. Another mighty interesting bout was that between Lapham and Hein. A more evenly matched pair would have been hard to find, and though Lapham fought with all there was in him the decision of the judges in favor of Happy Hein met with g'eneral approval.

Previously wrestling was participated in only as an inter-company affair, with points given to winners to count for the Brigade Flag. There were no outside meets. Last year a team was formed and one meet was held with outside teams. Pennsylvania came down and met us-she returned home defeated. That one victory was an incentive for this, the following year. arranged by Manager Kilduff. Gilbert was elected captain. A four-match schedule was The call for candidates in the early fall brought forth a good-sized squad and the pre- liminary training was started. The squad applied themselves conscientiously and worked hard, and it was only after the strongest kind of competition that many of the contestants secured their positions on the team. The squad was weeded down and there 1'emained: Elder at 115 pounds, Knott at 125 pounds, Gilbert at 135 pounds, Schofield at 1415 pounds, Sowell at 155 pounds, VVeems at 175 pounds. Loftin, our heavyweight, was splendid, but on ac- count of injuries did not participate in all our meets, as did the others. Our first wrestling meet was held with Pennsylvania on 1"ebruary 5th, It was an easy victory for us, as we beat them 6' bouts to 1. Our second meet, WVRESTLING TEAM 310 on February 19th, was with Pennsylvania State. We beat them 1 bouts to 2, one bout being a draw. On February 26th we met Lehigh and beat them 5 bouts to 2. On Rlarch 5th we suffered our only defeat of the season at the hands of 1,1'111CCt0I1, who beat us, after the hardest match of the season, 4a bouts to 3. In justice to our team it nmst be said that in the heavyweight event Richard- son, the sturdy fullback of the football team, filled in the position on only one day's training. Our season's rec- ord therefore stands with tln'ee victories to our credit and only one defeat, a very creditable showing for our first year at this sport. Elder had a clear score of victories to his creditg Schofield and Sowell were great in their respective weights g Weems was a Trojan, and though weighing only 163 pounds met men of the 175-pound class, winning eve1'y event in his weight. In the Lehigh meet he entered the heavy- weight event after winning at his own weight, and though he was outweighed by over forty pounds, his man could not throw him, although he did get the decision on points. SOXVELL AND YVEEIHS Mr. P. Steffen, the wrestling instructor, worked hard and long with the team, and no little credit of our successful season is due to him. Wrestling is a man's game and develops sand, grit, energy and determination, as do few other sports. As all of these are attributes so essential to our chosen profession, we hope that this year is only a prelude to a long and successfully established spoit 111 tlns msti tution.

Now, following the general upheaval of things and conditions, the choir is put out in front of the whole audience-pardon us, we meant congregation-and absolutely the only time they aren't noticed is when they are singing. It is said that high authorities, having heard the small Bedlam set up by the choir in the old chapel, designed the new one so that the sweet songsters. would 'have to sit up and keep quiet. They do. One can hardly imagine anything more quiet and absolutely noiseless than that same choir. Once in a while, if Professor Zimmerman comes to the point of his story at the same time he reaches the pianissimo part of the '6Te Deum," Dutchis wild cackle will startle the audi---congregation, and Bill Young produces some weird effects as he rambles over the scale in a leisurely search of the key. Then, too, after hop nights Bryant and Romeo split the zenith and nadir respectively in their impassioned solos, but these are all exceptions. The main fact remains that the choir as a whole could take lessons in noise-making from a Chesa- peake Bay oyster. Not that they do not possess voices, and excellent ones, too! Far from it! Just look at the gentlemen on the left: Kilduff, Robottom, Chevalier, Brown, Wellbrock-dear me! How many of them seem to have been in the old Seventh! You say Mr. Clark was in the Seventh, 313 too? VVl1at an odd coincidence! But then there can have been no favoritism, for were they not all put through a rigid examination by the impartial VVellbrock, who relentlessly crushed budding ambitions by putting down G's, P's and V. 1'.'s in the back of a hymn book after the manner of the immortal "Half Check ?,, Of course they were. If they do not wish to sing they have good reasons. The front row doesn't sing because people would hear them better- C H OI It I should say more,--would hear them more if they did than if they didn't, which you must admit is a logical reason. The middle row doesn't sing because they might throw the front row oft' the key. Qlf there is anything in this world that could throw the front row farther oft' it is that middle row., Sir! The rear row do not have to sing. They are friends of Mr. Clark. 314 , .. .g- .. 1,.-.,-.-f- q.,-7 . ..

I-IAL1., '10 HE purpose of the Association is to help the midshipmen lead an upright Christian lifg and to show that such a life does not mean being "goody-goody." Its principal activi- ties are the weekly meetings and the Bible study classes. Every Sunday after supper a meeting is held lasting about one-half hour. At almost all of these there is as a speaker some man of ability along religious, social or educational lines. It is in these meetings that the growth of the Y. M. C. A. is most evident. VVhen 1910 entered the Academy an upper class- man who attended was somewhat the exception, while every meeting held this year has been ll fill l l some occasions practically the whole Brigade has turned out. W0 Ci , itll! OD Bible study has also made great strides in the past year-thanks largely to the mul and ability with which Dr. Carpenter conducted the leaderis class, and to the energy of Hall in organizing and managing the classes. Those taking part in this study are divided up into about thirty groups of a dozen each, care being taken to make each group congenial. On Friday evenings the leaders meet in a normal class, where the topics for the coming week are discussed. The Y. M. C. A. also keeps the reading room supplied with papers and magazinesg furnishes a library of books for the cruiseg and provides entertaimnents on Saturday evenings when there are no hops or sports. It is due to the support of the Association OFFICERS OF Y. M. C. A, 315 SOME OF THE BUNCH AT NORTHFIELD many of whom had to work their way to get there, that the "Bulletin" and the Masqueraders got their start and that each midshipman gets a copy of "Reef-Points" every year. Besides this, the Association sends delegates to the large Y. M. C. A. conferences to obtain new ideas which may be of value. Last July fourteen men were given ten days leave in order to represent the Naval Academy at Northfield. When they arrived they were quartered in what, during the winter, is the main building of 'fMoody's Seminary for Young Ladies." The greater part of the time was spent in attending lectures and meetings, and not one of the midshipmen but was made to think seriously, and was helped by what he saw and heard and, above all, by the atmosphere of the place. The sight of so many earnest fellows, had its effect, and the large proportion of delegates who were "letter" men and social leaders in the different colleges was very noticeable. There was also a lighter side. Wlien asked for something distinctive of the Academy we had a relay pie race with seven men on a side, while an appreciative audience of over two hundred urged us on. A summary court-martial held the day after our arrival found Fletcher and Perley guilty of premeditated fussing, and in pursuance of the sentence they were thrown into the duck pond with due ceremony. In the track meet we developed some unexpected talent, especially in the shotput and the rough-house events such as the three-legged, sack and obstacle races, but it NORTH FIICLD D I'IT,EGA'l'l'IS was in baseball that we par- ticularly shone. VVe worked our way into the finals and were finally beaten by a score of 2-1 only, by the Yale team, composed almost entirely of "YH men. The memory of our whole stay at Northfield is one of days pleasantly and profitably spent. The foreign cruise will, of course, prevent any such trip this summer, but we trust that interest in the Young Men's Christian As- sociation will not flag and that under its new officers the Association will con- tinue to grow and to prosper. IQIL HILLS form a very important part of the curriculum at the Academy. It is at drill that we crystallize the theoretical knowledge of the section room into the practical knowledge that comes from actual experience. The day's drill ends the day's work, and reduces by one the number of 'Sdaysv chalked up behind the door. Many and varied are the things we do at drills, and many and varied the things we may learn from them. Every department, except English and Dago and Math., has some special form of torment it is pleased to call a "drill," From crawling through dirty boilers in steam to marching at Dress Parade to the tune of "Anchors Aweighn or "Ready Aboutf' From the Plebe's first attempts to twinkle his toes to the "one and tu" of the professor from Baltimore to pulling on a young sapling at cutter drill, or doing bayonet exercise and sitting up equipped in heavy marching order. Between these are drills, drills, and still more drills. Promptly at 3.40 on week-days and at 10.05 on Saturdays the gongs ring, the bugles sound their unwelcome ta ta, t'ta ta, and some seven hundred and fifty odd midshipmen fall in on the terrace to be marched to their various tasks. During the winter months steam drills take up a good part of the time. These are perhaps the most instructive drills we have, comprising, as they do, everything in the mechanical line from blacksmithing to getting a ship under way. Youngsters are initiated into the delights of chipping and -' p filing blocks of iron-as often A r pounding their thumbs as the Q A ' ' i f . ' W ,Wk X VL I . X , , tj-A I '1,Z:2v:m:k, ,..l ends of the chisel. They must also become skilled smiths and he familiar with ways and means of tempering and forging iron and steel. The Second Class make boil- ers 'midst a clamor so deaf- ening one can't think, pour moulds and run lathes, while r the weary First Class man is PASS IN REVIEW 317 up P 1 , W- X 'll SHAM BATTLE 818 ' if taught to run larger machines, shapers, planers and the like, to take indicator cards, to run turbines and gas engines and the thousand and one various odd engines and machines that p are found on shipboard. In addition to the drills in the steam building, each company spends about two weeks in the engine- room of a monitor. Before it has finished it will have crawled through the inside of boilers, started fires and shoveled coal into furnaces, traced the course of steam through valves and pipes, peered inside the main cylinders and climbed over the tops of engines in a temperature of 120 degrees or more to examine oil leads and cups-it will have run engines and auxiliaries and in fact done everything doable in an engine- room. And to see a midshipman at a hop in the evening resplendent in full dress and brass buttons, oscillating joy- . ON THE Prrs ously to "The Dollar Princess" or "Cin-bin-bin," who would think that that same midshipman had spent the morning crawling around the tum-tum of a boiler, examining tubes, tube sheets and grate bars, and emerging with hands, face and clothing covered with soot and grime? In the fall and spring the riHe range claims many of us. To the under classmen in the pits this means a chance for a peaceful smoke undisturbed by thoughts of O. C.'s and the like. To the upper classman firing it brings a chance to qualify as a marksman and to win a medal to wear on his manly bosom. Rifle shooting is always interesting, and what with tl1e chances for pot shots at chickens wandering around the range, target practice is probably the most popular of all our drills. The Ordnance Department has - many other pleasures in store for the unwary. The gun shed can be the coldest place this side of the Q North Pole, and many have been the frozen feet and ears enjoyed while studying the insides of a torpedo, or the toes smashed by some one's dropping a drill shell at the loading machine. In addition to these, we lay mines in the harbor to blow up the unwary- oyster fleet, 01' shoot torpedoes at class- mates in a dinghy 1,000 yards away, greatly enjoying the fumes of the calcium carbide torpedo torch when the torpedo must be recovered. HEAvY MARCHING onnrzn It used to be a Plebe rate to pull a cutter--the S19 Fx.. .iff ,.o"" ?'f STEAM TACTICS 320 youngsters being in charge -while the First and Sec- ond Classes enjoyed them- selves running s t e a m launches. But this year things have changed, and we all get our turn at the oars, much to the disgust of the First Class man, who considers himself above such X tasks as pulling an oar in a ' X ! M M cutter while Plebes sit in GOOD OLD SAIL DRILL ' the stern sheets. More pleasant is the instruction in handling cutters and small boats under sail. Tacking and wearing and various other evolutions keep one busy, and woe to the unlucky middy who doesnit make his landings to suit the officers in charge of the drill. Signals play an important part in the seamanship drills. At these we learn to wig Wag and semaphore, read the many colored flags of the navy and international codes, and to understand the winking red and white lights of the Ardois system, that on the cruise we may be able to translate the various messages that are sent to and from between the ships of the squadron. The First Class drills are of a more practical nature than others. They include about three weeks of electrical engineering and some time at hydrographic surveying. In the electrical laboratory we run motors, investigate switchboards and systems of turret control, trace wirings of engine-room and steering telegraphs and helm angle indicators, learn the wireless code and tackle the mysteries of the closed and open circuits, antenna: and induction coils, and woe to the unlucky one who pulls a switch, throws a lever or loiters behind switch- boards "to see what happens." In navigation, the First Class make a survey of a portion of the Severn River. White signals are built in various places for us, and many hours are spent in carrying twenty-five foot poles, pins, battens 'and other weird and wonderful con- traptions around the countryside. Parties take soundings, measure the tides and 6'occupy" stations. Then we go in and make a chart from our survey of the "Crabtown Flats." One would scarcely regard dancing as a drill, yet such it is at the Academy, and Plebes enjoy it daily during the winter. Perhaps the professor from Baltimore has his troubles directing the graceful steps of his unsophisticated pupils, and much running does he get because of his marvelous distortions of the English language. But he knows his business, as most of the girls who come to our hops will tell you. Plebes also have drills in the gym which straighten out curved backs and rounded shoullers. They go to the armory for instruction in 391 ARTILLERY 322 1 , V 1 Q':'.'w..'-"Vw , -'ga,Z'5,:3,f..fvfr:1 X xg,3"'P:. , ,.-, 2' 'S 'nt 1 Ii.- vu ,,- , a...-.3-.....'1 s..,, .2 4 5, -, J.

But the most spectacular and showy of all drills is Brigade Infantry. This, while not so inter- esting to the Brigade, sends a thrill i of delight and patriotism down the Spectator's back. Take a dress A p parade, for instance, when the long GUN SHED blue line stretches down the field, at parade rest, while the band marches down its full length and back again. "Bring your battalions to attention, sir," sings out the adjutant, and "Battalion attention" comes from the battalion commanders. The white gloved hands snap . . ,, back to the sides, pieces are ,- twisted 'round to the order, ' and the blue line stiffens and stands rigid as the echoes of' the "Star-Spangled Banner" come ringing back from the hills across the Severn.

June Week! A name to conjure with! To the Plebe it means the end of his chrysahs state, to the Youngster the increased importance of being a Second'Class man, to the Second Class man the near approach of the time when he will be smoking his pipe and wearing a mat- ter of a gold stripe or two around his sleeveg but to the First Class man--what doesn't it sig- nify? The reward of four years of labor, of worry, of struggle, of pain, compressed into one short week, already full to overflowing with drills and exercises, is it any wonder that the aver- age First Class man,s expression at that time is one of happy idiocy? The exams are all over and whether we have 'sbustedv or not we dismiss all thought of them from our minds and en- joy ourselves every minute of the time. We go out and yell frantically, that the baseball team may "put it all overn the Army, and that night we take in the hop for the cadets. When the Board of Visitors are due we go out to the field to receive them and then have them, instead of admiring our stalwart forms, pass down the ...f line discussing some other subject with the superinten- dent. We go to dress parade, and our company marches ' ' out, heads in air, before all - A . . the Brigade, to receive the BOARD OF VISITORS 395 colors from the hands of the fair maiden for whom we give: "Three cheers for the young lady who pre- sented the colors !"

We invade the Steam Building and gravely hammer, file, and machine on stock castings finished long ago, and kept in store for June Week drills. We fight sham battles, charge and counter charge, till the red ink soaked ground is strewn with the dead and dying, all of whom seem miraculously to have fallen in the most comfortable position possible. Between times we walk and talk under the big shade trees, go sailing, take canoe trips, and stroll along Lover's Lane at night while the band plays. So the time slips by until the night comes, when we go to the Armory and thread our way through the mazy german, tasting moments of bliss that are worth the waiting for. Dimly realizing that it is the end, we fall in "without arms, in charge of the Cadet Com- mander," march past the Brigade and seat ourselves to listen to the Secretary's speech. Mechanically we go up to get the precious sheepskin, and, before we know it, we have sung the class song, given three cheers for those we leave behind us, danced the snake dance and are "mingling with our friendsf' REVIEWING THE BRIGADE JUNE WVEEK FEMMES 326 ' v 11" HE end of June Week, the last good-byes said, torn finally from her smiles, and stowed along the sea wall with clothes bags and mattresses, we looked at the ships at anchor and began to speculate about First Class cruise. We were rudely awakened when we boarded the flagship and Pule's raucous voice bade us: "Bear a hand and stow your lockers !" Shoes went into Admiral Dewey's sideboard, Bull and Cube where once reposed the classic silver service, everything in orderly confusion. Two days of lingering farewell in Crabtown and we were off ! Down Chesapeake Bay sailed the pirate squadron, Olympia, Chicago, Hartford and Tonopah, on our last summer cruise--with 1910 at the helm. The first port was Old Point. Madly we tore ashore on our first liberty. Dinner and hops at the Chamberlain or on the Post, something doing at Norfolk or Newport News, and June Week was almost forgotten. The heavy, hot summer hung like a pall over us as we sailed between the Capes and began to feel the long ocean roll on a northward course. Out of the heat and the dead, lifeless calm we steamed up the coast to Block Island Sound. Soon we felt the list of the tide - off' Race Rock Light and i 4 the Boy Navigator of the Olympia reported, "New London light off' the star- board bow, Sir." Many times we anchored there at the mouth of the Thames. The Griswold on one side, her lights shining an invit- ing welcomeg on the other the Pequot cottagesg and barely hidden behind the point-Ocean Beach. Up the river, behind a veil of heavy smoke, New Lon- dong the Crocker House Grill, and the way to New THE FLAGSHIP 328 York. Six happy weeks we spent in New London-this our routine. On Monday morning up anchor for Gardiner's Bay, where every day until three we drilled and took berth deck sights. At three it was "out all boatsn for sailing races, or over to the beach for a swim. Friday morning the squadron again headed for New London, and we were in for a week end. For the Admiral's order read, "From Friday noon until Monday morning there shall be as little work and as much relaxa- tion and recreation as possible." About four o'clock Friday we dropped anchor in New London and proceeded to carry out that order in, and with, spirit.

Thus the party mustcrs in the New London launch, the coxswain shoves off' and the Officer-of-the-Deck leaves the gangway. Suddenly there is a wild whoop, out of the Admiral's cabin rushes the destruc- tive "Pug,,' blouse in one hand and cuffs in the other, bowls over the captain, throws a kiss to the Officer-of-the-Deck and makes a flying leap for the launch. All the "Beach Combers" being aboard now, the steamer makes the best of her way to the landing. On deck "Rusty," who has relieved Stolz as an accommodation, sends word to the Mate of the Deck that if "Billy" Barrett will muster his belated fussers he can have a boat for the Griswold. The resplendent ones shoved off, quiet reigns on board the flagship-broken only by the low Strains of "Tubby's" guitar, "Rusty's,' raucous calls on deck, and the moanings of the July conduct grade, for there is nothing sleepier or bluer than the ship on liberty days. Just before supper "Mary,' and "Pedro" come back from their trolley ride, bringing first tidings of Tom's wild doings ashore. A few more drift aboard for supper, after which the ship is again deserted. To the dance at the Griswold the fussersg up to New London the hard guys 3 out to the beach "Tom" and the "Studuc."

There are rough liberties and smooth, but the best of all is the "big" one. And of these are the tales heard aboard the last boat. "Happy,s" wild tear, "Win's" latest stunt, "Pug's', heroics, the "Studuc's" fuss- ing, and, wondering where "Tom" is-we come back from liberty a happy crew. Aboard again, each finds his hammock some- rwhere in the scuppers and is tired enough to turn in, though knowing that it is useless to hope for sleep as yet. A few belated ones trying to get back noiselessly, the harsh tones of the O.D. as he rags them, and once more stillness settles over the ship. The Officer-of-the-Deck, well along in the midwatch, starts from his reverie at the ap- proaching pujj' pay? of a shore boat making a landing alongside the anchor chain, but being wise from long experience he makes no move and from the gangway watches a familiar figure clamber up the bow and stealthily creep down the forecastle. He knows that there will be a howl below as every man is awakened in turn, for the tardy one has left his hammock in the "Lucky Bag" and is hunting for the Mate ofthe Deck. Yet knowing this the O. D. feels easy as he paces his post, for "Tom', Nicholson, the "Pride of our Navy," is at last safe aboard and all is well! After a pa1'ade and review by the President at Norwich, the fleet got under way for the "yachting" part ofthe cruise. The first stop was at Boston, where we inspected the chain foundry, the rope-walk, and made a tour of the Fore River shipyards at Quincy. Then came Gloucester and more parades, the delicate aroma of codfish permeating it all. Then Portsmouth, dreary place, and after that Portland. We were the first cruise to stop there, may we not be the last! Our reception was warm and most enthusiastic, the Portland Club, the Town Hop, the absence of a parade-all contributed to make our stay there one of the most enjoyable times CO NS'1'ITUTION,S GUN DECK of the cruise. ' Bath next, and that place not only marks the beginning of the I IN THE NAVY XVAY 332 end, but the people there make one feel that he is on leave already, so open-hearted and hospitable are they. Bar Harbor we found quite the opposite, and our reception was as chilly as the weather. From there we headed southward, bound for September. A brief stop for that combination of coaling and dancing peculiar to Newport, and we set our course for Crabtown, homeward bound for the brightest time of all the years-First Class Leave. 'SN' ,. ,M 4? . l ll ' lx ' DH!P15'J- V 4 UARTERMASTER!quartermaster! chief signalman! Haul taut signal halliards!" The querulous voice rang out over the decks of the U. S. S. Chicago, where a swarm of earnest, perspiring young men were clawing over huge piles of bags of clothing and throwing things right and left, chewing on frazzled ends of clews or lashing up brand new hammocks as soft as boiler plate. The summer cruise had begun. We were at last on the good ship "Chi,,' the "home,,' embarked for three months, with what vicissitudes in store for us we knew not, but with Sep- tember leave at the end to cheer our ever-failing hopes. The next Monday, after the fussers had had one last long Sunday, it was good-by to old Crabtown, and we steamed down the bay on our first-class cruise, our last as midshipmen U. S. Naval Academy. How we took in the sights of Norfolk, devastated the hearts of the fair ones at the Griswold, and played havoc generally along the New England coast is told in other pages of this book. We, of the Chicago, were pretty well occupied on board most ofthe time, but while not actually engaged in pulling running boats, stowing hammocks, coaling ship, standing watch, working Nav., dismounting guns, standing at quarters, clearing the deck, writing up note-books and rhinoing, really had quite a good time. We turned out at 6.00 A. M. with the Mate of the Deck,s fencing foil tickling our ribs, lashed with seven neat and equally- spaced turns, stowed our hammocks by 6.14.99 W. T. and then worked a little Nav. before breakfast. After the bounteous product of Jack's genius, for a change we tried a little more Nav. until the Mate of the Deek's cries sent half the ship's com- pany on the bridge to help with the practice signal and the rest on deck to flemish down THE HCHI29 gear. Of course, the "extra duty squad" 1 333 in the washroom and "Rouge" asleep on the table were not disturbed. As soon as the 1.5's had been impartially distributed for good work with the flags, We had a little setting up, followed by a sprint around the deck, before taking the bat- tery to pieces to remove the rust from the locking lugs. If we succeeded in putting the guns together before noon, we filled in the time before dinner taking a gundeck meridian attitude, and listening to some of the "Goodness Jakesv with their Yiddish. After dinner, a short smoke in the 15 sq. ft. of the port sponson GETTING UNDER WAY while Sack, Dutch, Petoskey and Sing Sing Sid discussed the merits of the "Chi" as a place of residence, and then more drill. While one division spent its time inventing dotters, the engineering detail seized all the camp chairs except the four Freddie occupied, and read "QI days" with much care, while the others amused themselves semaphoring or overhauling the boat gear. When release "busted,,'.it was "out all boats,', and we laboriously rigged out all things floatable except the steamers, rowed around half an hour, sailed a few minutes, and then as laboriously hoisted everything again. Then we had a little setting up and more exercise on the bridge with the flags before supper, and afterwards, as soon as the prunes and the weiners had disappeared, Dutch entertained us with his orchestra-while we feverishly worked Nav. At taps, of course, after such a day, we i were loath to turn in, but usually most of us sought our hammocks sometime before eleven, perchance for an "all night inf, to snooze until the thud of squilgee handles on the deck above roused us from a last beauty sleep. Such was the daily round of pleasure. Of course, at Gardiner's Bay, boat drills and races were much in evidence, and we often spent half a day cleaning out the boats and swimming on the beach or leading the best sailors of the other ships a merry chase around the fleet. Two or three times, on Thursday nights, the Executive and Bill arranged entertainments, dancing, singing and boxing, with music by the famous Metzenberger Orches- tra. On Saturdays, a large squad of deadheads went ashore in the morning to play baseball, and the rest of the day those not on liberty went sailing with McComb. The climax of the fun-making, though, came on the last Saturday of our stay in New London. Then, as a matter of course, after the other ships had had their "teas" and "at homesj' we gave a hop that far outdid them all.

After their blood bound pact had been signed, only an accident saved the H. S. from a horrible fate. Under the leadership of that red-handed villain, the Muttonous Chief and his aides, Long Four Gun Fighter and Bloody Skip, Most Noble Chief Executioner of the Plank Walkers, the Muttoneers were all assigned to their duties, carefully rehearsed for that fateful night, when the officers were to be firmly bound to the anchors weighted with note-books and dropped overboard, the plug ,pulled out, the magazines blown up and the doomed ship sunk in the g deepest hole in New London Harbor. The horrible plot was only frustrated by one of the divisional officers coming on deck one night at an unearthly hour and overhearing the Mutt Chief giving final instructions to Vasco de Gama and the Keeper of the Death Knell: "Now, just at eight bells, see, when de Bucko Mate and de Dynamite Demon blow up de boilers and de rest tend to de oppressors with de anchors, us and de Hidden Treasure Keeper pinch all de vile l demon Rum on board and den we all escape in de punt.

Many anticipated bugbears never appeared and First Class quarters were excellent. A water cooler in the Steerage gave that sense of seniority which recourse to the common scuttle-butt prohibits, and the leather couches below decks were always full--of many things. After meals a merry c1'owd gathered there to smoke and joke and sing the little ditties composed by the irrepressiblc Spuds. Even the study parties held by '6Savez," with "Square- head" and "Rosy" as assistants, for the benefit of the unsat in mechanics, were turned into happy meetings, where the wooden men not only learned something, but also drew considerable enjoyment out of running each other and their profs. Sundays, class messes were permitted and we were seldom without some visitors from the other ships, come over to partake of our fa- mous dinners and imbibe there witl1 a little of the real saltiness of the good old ship. Baseball parties ashore, sailing trips with the whaleboats and fussing t expeditions were, of course, sources of frequent enjoy- ment, but the most pleasant 1.ooKING FORXVARD THE BLACK MARIA 836 , FAT SLEEPS IN memories of all are the Fourth of July dinner, the Regatta Day at Gardiner's Bay and the Tea Fight aboard ship. On the last-named occasion we had worked hard to transform the ample quarterdeck of the old ship into a veritable bpwer of greenery and bunting, with the half-deck below screened off as a refreshment cafe, where the "King's Guards" served sustenance in the form of liquids and solids. Above, the light fantastic was merrily danced to the tune of the wardroom pianola. The oflicers as- sisted in every way possible to make . ,, a success of the affair, lending para- phernalia and entering heartily into the spirit. The Exec., as always, was full of kindness and helpful sugges- tions. The time passed but too quickly, and when the last visitor had been helped into our borrowed steam- ers the ancient vessel looked lonely and deserted, while the crew, who had been looking on from forward with approval and keen enjoyment of all the charming faces and musical laughter, left their places slowly and regretfully to man brooms and sweep down the last vestiges of that happy event, the Hartford's tea. The Fourth of July dinner was held, for the First Class, in the steer- age, the long, standing tables being decorated with wild flowers and spicy bonghs fanother suggestion of our Exeej, turning the narrow compart- ment into a perfect banquet hall. The mess--boys had been carefully instructed so that instead of the usual '1'1"'5 l"0UN'1'H OF JULY DINNER 887 slap-dash method we were used to there would be genuine serving. All preparations com- pleted, the bunch sat down, some fifty strong, including guests from all the other ships, and a merrier crowd could not have been found. The dinner was of several courses, including a dozen desserts-midshipman's gauge of a dinner. With the coffee and A in M ' .

Finally the good time U S S LUSITANIA over and the fun giving way to a moment of seriousness, we rose and sang with full hearts the class song, forgetting all diseords of music in the sentiment of the song. Not long before our departure for the North f a Regatta Day was held in Gardiner's Bay, in which the Windjammer Hartford distinguished her- self: her barnacled sailor lads winning all but one of the five classes of pulling races, with second place in the last race, and losing but one out of the same number of the sailing races. This against entries from all the other four ships of the squad- ron. The squadron commander published an order of commendation for the sailor-like way we had handled our boats and took the same opportunity to congratulate us on the excellence of our signaling. With this proud record behind us we returned to the Chesapeake, enjoyed a few last boat parties at Solomon's and finally tied up at the old Santee wharf. Next day we drew our amounts available and left for that culmination of joys, First Class Leave, resolved that our last cruise had been one of great pleasure, some worth, with a little drop of LooK1NG AFT gall to flavor the whole. 338 , V I W. ...... .2414 z.'.. JL' HEN the detail to the different ships was posted those assigned to the "Flat Iron," remembering her past history, set up a dismal howl, which was joined in by six more first classmen, transferred at the last moment from the Olympia. After a careful study of the list of duties to be performed and the number of men available, it was figured out that we would be on duty or at work for an average of twenty-eight hours out of every twenty-four. Great was our joy when the first detail was posted. No watches at night or on liberty days except for the officers of the deck and signal watch. After two days at anchor with good liberty and no work, the Crab Navy got under Way and steamed to Solomon's. The authorities, fearing that if we were allowed to land at this gay and fashionable resort the New England coast would no longer have any charms for us, kept us on board. After a touch of Norfolk weather such that it was scarcely necessary to start fires in the y boilers in order to get up steam, we left for the cooler waters of Long Island Sound. The trip up was calm and uneventful-fortunately. The lx l e- . I FLEET AT BATH HSKATE,, TAKES A NAP 339 XVHERE CLEAN LINESS IS N0 VIRTUE course steered showed that not in vain had we studied curve tracing, and to the especial joy of the First Class, as soon as we arrived in Gardiner's Bay we proceeded to swing ship. From then on for over a month it was week ends at New London and the rest of the time at Gardiner's Bay. For about ten days it was work, work, work,'until we began to think that the ship was living up to her past reputation. One evening we tore ourselves away from our note-books for a musicale in which a squib song setting forth our grievances was sung for the special benefit of the officers. The effect was magical, from then on we had a happy ship: Note-book work was cut down, boat drills became a pleasure, ending as they did with a long "Flemish" ashore, with nothing to bother us except a few million green flies. About the middle of our stay here a happy bunch of mutineers, exiled from the "Chi," came to the Tony and pounded the skate club. Fame followed our social affairs. Our tea-fight, the first in tl1e fleet, was carieatured in a New York paper. And as for the Parade at Norwich, in every railway station in Connecticut were posters advertising the great military parade, headed by the battalion of U. S. Midshipmen. The staff was appointed from the Tony, "Tim', Byrne being four-striper. When we left New London we headed up the coast, visiting all the shipyards and incident- ally every coaling station. In Boston we had a week of fine liberty cut short by orders to proceed to Gloucester to take part in another parade, and to see the inspiring pageant. Here again the Tonopah's company headed the procession. Gus Gray was four-striper and Davy three-striper, but both were eclipsed by "O, see Charlie, right out in front l" Bath was our next stop. Here another parade was advertised, but to our dismay QPQ called off. A brief stop at East Lemoyne to coal, two stormy days at Bar Harbor and then we began to roll along towards the South in a manner that caused a great number of cases of ptomaine poisoning, indigestion, etc. One week end at Newport fto coalj, Solomon's again, a day spent in admiring the academy water front, and then LEAVE! So ended the cruise of 1909. In future years it may pale before a three months' trip abroad, but in all our hearts there will be found a very warm spot for the last and best crab cruise.

By six o'clock on Saturday, September 28, 1908, most of the class was already assembled in the lobby of the Hotel Belvedere. As each new arrival entered he would be overwhelmed by a laughing, band-shaking mob of his happy classmates. "Where's Mac P" "Did you see her this leave P" "Heard Niek's latest?" After shaking hands with the bellboy eight times the newcomer would find his roommate and together they would pile into the elevator for their room, each yelling about what hc did on leave and paying not the least attenticn to what the other fellow was saying. A bath, a quick shift, and then, smiling and wolf-hungry, the crowd began to gather in eager anticipation before the closed doors which were all that stood between us and the feast we had been looking forward to for over two years. ' The band was late in arriving and took even longer to reach the tenth floor since, owing to the discrepancy between the size of the bamlsmen and of the elevators, only two could be carried at a trip. Finally all got upg we crowded around the doors while the last touches were given the tables, then with the class march booming forth we trooped into the promised land. It was a joyous sight that met our eyesg the big room hung with class colors, cozy. candle-lit tables in the form of a great '10, and on the raised platform the long-awaited band. We seated ourselves long enough to have the picture taken and then with a shout rose to Tubby's toast. He toasted from his heart as a man should: "The class: the jolliest, the truest, the best-hearted bunch of fellows that ever got togetherf' As one looked from one group to another one could not but join in the sentiment. Our brand new class song 842 followed and the fact that some sang the words twice over, some the chorus, some impro- vised, and all finished two bars ahead of Clark and Fagan, in no way affected the ardor and spirit of it. Then we set to. The feed-in many a long year to come, in many a dreary cruise at sea when our best friends shall be hardtack and canned willy, we shall have it to look back on and to dream of. The beautifully rendered music echoed the all-pervading jollity, and now and again "Anchors Aweigh," or some other air of stirring memories, would bring us to our feet with a yell. In the interludes some one, either one of the committee, primed and full of his prearranged subject, or some impromptu speaker, equally primed and full, would arise to propose some toast, serious or ridiculous, each man's appearance being greeted with applause that was only exceeded by the ovation which he received when he sat down.-- And yet the only personal mention in the paper next day was: "John H. Wellbrock, the pop- ular class secretary, responded in characteristic style." Do they know it, even in Baltimore? And so proceeded the supper, until, as the blue haze of the cigar smoke grew thick, the roomful broke up into small groups, in the middle of each some would-be raconteur telling the latest, or giving a faithful imitation of Dippy on the bridge, while his listeners laughed in lazy appreciation. Finally when the last drags were taken, and the last glasses clinked empty, we sprang to our feet as the band started that air whose first lines were then not far from appropriate: "Oh, say, can you see, - By the dawn's early light-" When the last roll of the snare had died away we filed out of the banquet hall to spend our last night as free men. i -5 ...te '-men su s l llllglllll--ulnn . -:ITT-wl:.1u1lU CHARACTE R 1 Sllc. 5 yhg-1 T Q al.-K+ mx, names " 3 1-s,a....3z.i.,... 4 . .

Dunn, Townsend, O. C. Greene, Howell, Gay and Fagan set the lyrics of Porter and Clark to tuneful and catchy music, while Professor Zimmerman rendered invaluable services in arranging the music and coaching the choruses. Van de Boe as the Prince was as comical as usual, while Bobby Clark as Gretchen, his daughter, made a most fascinating heroine. Chapline and Spencer as Gretchen's Hirtatious school chums set the hearts and brains of all the men awhirl with beauty and coquettishness. Chappy and his "little dutchs" made the hit of the evening in the "Wooden Shoei' song, while Clark, Meyer and Jones also called forth pronounced applause. There was not a dull moment in the play, and all the Masqueraders from the leading spirit, enthusiastic Bill Porter, down deserved and received the greatest credit for producing the most successful and original comedy ever presented by midshipmen. 849 1 'Jim MASQUERADERS 350 On New Year's night the Masqueraders, under their new leader, Rob Clark, appeared in their annual winter show. The usual black-faced comedians were dispensed with and Clark's clamoring clan of choristers and clowns, in evening clothes, danced and sang themselves into another success. Clark, Bryant and Deyo won the house with their good voices and tuneful songs, while Vincent Meyer's rendering of "If I were Kingl' showed real talent. The guitar and mandolin medley by Ralph Meyer, Dodd, G. A. Smith, Wick and Ellicott also received much applause, and the whole cast created an impression which augurs well for the spring show. Clark, Pendleton, Field and Meyer are now at work on the musical comedy which will be presented in June. It is to be in two acts and will be entitled "Does Money Talk?,' The music is being written by Howell, G. A.

The Devil willingly complied with the request, and convened a court, with John Paul Jones as President, consisting of all the heroes from Nero and Don Quixote to Captain Kidd and Roosevelt. The court being assembled, the prisoners were brought in and the trial was begun. The inhuman appearance of the accused wretches, and the varied and damning evidence of the witnesses, took away every shred of pity from the hearts of the weary spectators, so that with satisfaction they heard the sentence that condemned the prisoners: "To be delivered to Davy Jones, and by him drowned in the deadly waters of the Styx." Amid loud acclamations by the mob, the Devil, the court and all now adjourned to the sea wall of the Styx, where Davy Jones and his piratical crew were ready for their gruesome task. The two victims were hustled into Charon's waiting barge, willing hands pulled her out into the stream, and soon two sudden splashes in the darkness told the story. Then, as two big barrels floated off' down the eternal current, imprisoning the two lost souls, the Class of '09, redeemed at last from their hideous bondage, trooped back to the light, firing guns, singing the class song, and chanting that hymn of joy, that pzean of gladness, "No More Rivers to Crossf' -Q'-Iii,-----2:3-""'1'TiT" I JULFQ Q , 5 if " 1 il '7 41,'flT'2TM.1Hwf'f + " . 854 'Of Q2 HE annual Christmas Parade means more to the First Classmen than mere disporting in costume and laughing at each other's appearance and antics in outlandish rigsg it brings home more poignantly than ever New Year's or the semi-ans, the fact that we are on the RUSTY AND HIS YVATCHFUL EYE short leg of a long cruise. Possibly the reason for so strong a realization of this fact lies in the songs THE HULA DANCER we sing on this occasion, the time-honored "Out of the Wilclerncss,,' and the Christmas carols, composed by class talent. At any rate the pleasure we take in our parade is immeasurable, 355 J A and the under-classmen also enjoy the circus, the Second Class looking on with an appraising eye, already feeling within them a burning ambition to excel, when their time comes, all previous shows.

X M ' "1 ,Hu 'V I i K 1 'fi -,gs 358 QEIBUTBIUK nf Section Boom QEHCUCK BY ONE WHO STARRED HIS brief article is intended for the use of the midshipmen at the Naval Academy. Its purpose is to acquaint them at the outset with the principles which underlie the attainment of a 2.5. Too many of them never reach this desired figure, and it is hoped that this may give direction to the zeal and the energy abounding in our midshipmen and result in the discovery and invention of new ways of extracting a high mark from the instructor. INTRODUCTORY The section room is a battleground on which a contention 'takes place between the instructor and the midshipman. The birds, the beasts, and even the little fishes have their physical battles, but this differs from them in being a battle of wits. It is the aim of the instructor to find out how little the midshipman knows about a subject, and it is the object of the midshipman to conceal this lack of knowledge. This operation is a mighty game of skill. Strategy and Tactics.-"In time of peace prepare for war." Before going to recitation we may calculate the number of subjects, and, knowing where we come alphabetically, or where we stand at the board, we may estimate the probable subject we will draw and bone this subject. This is strategy. After we arrive at the recitation, tactics will come into play so to attract the instructor's attention at the proper moment that we may be given this subject. Principal Objective.-In order to obtain a mark it is necessary that we know one subject and know it well. Here the principle of concentration is seen. Concentrate on one subject and know it well. This is almost axiomatic. Speed.-This may be divided and discussed under the heads of "Speed in writing name," "Speed in writing subject," "Speed in reciting." The first subject in the lesson may sometimes be secured by writing your name hastily at the top of the board, finishing first, facing about and giving a slight cough to attract the instructoris attention. This method will usually give good results. If the subject assigned is known it is a good idea to write it rapidly and when through to endeavor to be called upon and recite orally. Thus any additional knowledge may be brought out and the mark correspondingly raised. If, however, the subject is a doubtful one, slow speed will sometimes avoid any further questioning before the bell rings. If called on in spite of this, read what is written rapidly and endeavor to show surprise at any ques- tions, as though what you had written fully covered everything. Action. Between Two Slips.-When the method of reciting requires the use of written slips you may make an excellent impression by studying the first and the last part of the lesson and then selecting a slip, one of whose sides is roughly torn and the other smooth, showing that it was either at the top or bottom of the pad. Then if one slip is very wide and the other narrow the first is sure to call for a discussion or definitions, while the second is probably a sketch. Homogeneous Slips.-If all the slips are of the same width matters are not so easy. If your battalion recites second hour you may gain valuable information from the aspect of the slips. Select one of as smooth and unsoiled appearance as possible, for that indicates that the man who had it the previous hour merely glanced at it and wrote, while a crumpled, damp slip betrays the fact that its holder spent a good fifty minutes chewing chalk over it. 359 Inauguration may LOWLY the days crawled along that first week in March, 1909, while we waited, with outward dread and inward confidence, for that morning when we were to leave Annapolis for one whole day and march countless miles down Washingtonis avenues, before the admiring eyes of the nation. The papers were full of the preparations for the coming event, the bunting-hidden streets and the gathering regiments, and we heard delicious rumors of the good things in store for us at Mrs. McLean's. Judge, then, our feelings at the early reveille of the fourth, when we looked out upon a. world of white, with drifts swirl- ing over the terraces, every wire in sight down, trees and poles tottering under the weight of the foot of snow standing out against their sides, and the air full of flakes driven by MQLEAN CUP-OBVERSE the thirty-mile gale. Nothing daunted, however, we got into uniform, filled our pockets with chocolate, and stood ready for the bugle. Seven-thirty came, but no assembly. Instead came the word, "No formation until further orders," and the next three hours was a long, long wait for those orders that never came. Groups gathered in the various rooms and smoked, and sang, and rough-housed, and did everything to kill time, but the one topic of conversation was, "VVonder if we'll get to go?" Periodically some one would grow impatient and raid the office for news, so that every rumor quickly spread to every deck in the building. Soon the news f came of the stalled trains, the broken telegraph wires, and the generally demoralized state of aH'airs in the outside world, but few really gave up hope entirely, until word came from the officer in charge: "Shift into service. Recitations this afternoon as usual lv Before i the scene that followed, let us draw the curtain. , M LEAN CUP-REVERSE 360 All was not so bad as it seemed though. Nearly all the instructors were marooned in'Wash- ington or stalled in a drift somewhere on the road, so the scheme of reciting fell through, and there was no more work for us until the next day. When the papers arrived, with accounts of the slush-filled streets, the drenched paraders, and the heroic, track-clearing West Pointers, there was not a man but felt that, sometimes, Bancroft Hall was a pretty good place, after all. Perhaps the part that disappointed us most was our inability to accept the hospitality of Mrs. McLean, whose repasts for hungry midshipmen after parades are well known in Academy tradition. Foreseeing from the condition of weather and streets the shape we would be in after a ten-mile parade, she not only provided her usual repast, but had every possible com- fort at hand to relieve us of the effects of ourihard, cold and wet march. As the least thing we could do the Brigade voted her a loving cup which was presented later in the spring. And so passed the fourth of March into history. -.-..-nu . 1 r. I , 1 .

THE SUNDAY PARADE 363 X S ff f Xi MARY ROESCH was in New York the last Sunday of Second Class Leave and with Killy dropped in to see a "Sacred Concert." Mary bought two tickets for Hammerstein's and they started over after supper.. Passing the Lyric they saw a huge crowd outside and deciding that there must be a better show there, they sold their tickets to a speculator at reduced rates and went back to the Lyric. The box oflice was all sold out, but Fat, nothing daunted, pressed a bill upon the doorkeeper and started in. The doorkeeper, however, was firm, and as a last bluff' Fat tapped himself on the chest and said, "I am H. O. Roeschf' Instantly the doorkeeper was all smiles, deferentially remarking: "O, pass right in, Mr. O'Roesch." Fat never tumbled until a man went up on the stage and introduced as speaker "that distinguished countryman of ours, Mr. John Redmond, the Pride of Ireland." AT INFANTRY DRILL the Swede's company was ordered to fire at the telegraph wires, but Nick, oblivious to all surroundings, thinking up a new way to get into Sick Quarters before the next Nav. exam., was allowing his piece to aim at will. Erny spotted him and indignantly called out: "What are you firing at, Mr. Nicholson Pl' Nick, not to be caught unawares, glanced down quickly at his sight and triumphantly answered, "Two thousand yards, sir !" PLEBE YEAR Peter Hoffman gained an enviable reputation for agility and cuteness by the way in which he evaded the officer-in-charge one afternoon. Peter returned from drill and sneaked into an empty room on the fourth deck to rag a smoke. He had not enjoyed his skag for more than a minute when he heard the clang of the O. C.'s sword. He quickly ducked the butt and skipped behind the door. The officer smelled the smoke, hesitated, stopped, and then entered the room to catch the culprit. Pete waited behind the door until he had crossed the threshold, and then slipped quickly through the crack and sped down the corridor to safety. 364 Flora and Fauna of The United States Naval Academy and Vicinity Being a description of some of the more common varieties of flowers to be found in the yards and gardens of that place.

Ghz Qrruise of the fottpafour OUNGSTER CRUISE the Olympia-to which all 1910 were assigned-being too crowded, forty-four of us were detached and ordered back to the Severn. With a "hx" yell for the "coal heavers" we left behind, and a cheerful response to the "Windjammers," we sailed from Norfolk and the Fair for Crabtown. Of what use to dwell on the luxuries of our quarters, the green but willing C Pj Plebes and the deep sea feeling instilled by reefing sail in a dead calm while tied up alongside the "Santee,'? That were a dry tale, our cruise was at times, I fear, rather wet. After a week or so the Severn sailed- aided by three steam launches and the "Standish"-for her first port, the anchor buoy in the middle of the Severn River. Then frowns began to disappear, one could not scowl at everything, and in their place smiles at the two good points the cruise promised, . l ,VS gag i, 4, al e.

Every day we were ashore, paddling canoes taken promiscuously from the boathouse-and studying fleet maneuvers. Finally the night before sailing came and as yet no cargo was shipped. We met on the fore- castle and chose the daring crew to procure it. As the evening shadows were falling the grim forms of our heroes slipped over the side and set out on a quest that makes Peary's dash for the Pole look like the morning stroll of Woolsey Johnson. Foiled and 'chased by watchmen, after wild adventures when lost in the woods, the three found the beach--and a stray canoe. At a signal, two palings came off the fence with a r-r-ip, the canoe slid gently into the water, and the pirate crew were afloat. Pursuit-well, 'ROUND THE CAPSTAN it was unsuccessful. , . . Phe moon was wending an uncertain path down the Milky Way to its home in the horizon when the three left the "Dutchman's" home and hospitality-with a cargo. Landing alongside the anchor chain in the dark, windy night with spirit beating high, a raucous voice from the gangway: "Strange craft ahoy!" They tarried not to parley but got hence. The voice again: - "Dinghy there, give chase and capture that suspicious craft." 369 "The Exec. of the ship was Doctor Dip, , . And a clever sailor was he." ' l ' -I've forgotten the rhyme, but the pirates were ragged. This escapade is but one of many. What became of the cargo? Oh, it was shipped all right. One bright July morning we were towed out the home port and cast adrift on the bounding main fChesapeake Bayj. We tacked, boxhauled-did everything a ship is MERIDIAN ATTITUDES supposed to do. Eventually we arrived at Solomon's Isle by lifting the mud hook for each ebb tide andedropping it at flood. Shall I tell about our "big lib" in Solomon's-an ice cream festival, a. dance QPQ and Mill- stone? No-No. But of the launch parties and whole days spent on the beautiful Patuxent, the Severn hidden behind a dozen points down the river. Those were days. The time we took the mail ashore at Chesapeake Beach, and "Pug" made a hit at the skating rink. Those were not liberties in New York-yet who would have wished them otherwise! This cruise was dis- tinctive in that the best part was the ship herself--this a day aboard: At somewhere about six, the bugler blew reveille, if he remembered it. The mate of the deck, a martyr to duty, turned out a few Plebes. Then a long rest, broken only by cries from below in one familiar voice: "It's a conspiracy. Who threw that water through the skylight? fSmoock.j There, I got that one. Kill 'em-kill the pesky flies. Orderly! Mate of the Deck! Mate of the Deck! On deck there, turn that hose off me, you can't assassinate me. I'll fool you, Mr. Haralson! You, you, you Indian." A raving, wild Indian? No, 'tis only "Doctor Dippyf' On bunkers fitted in the boats under the bridge, or swung in fantastical arrangement in the rigging one hammock above the other clear up to the top, balanced on the lifeboat strong backs, sprawled over the bridge and on the awning-peacefully slumber the "Crew of the Cuspidor." Seven bells! Those so disposed and the Plebes attend breakfast formation and all the ship is alive save the "Cuspidor." Some time later "Tubby" rolls from out his hammock in the rigging and falls on the taut awning below with a deafening roar and a boom. fReveille and morning gun fire on the U. S. S. Cuspidor. Forty decks and no BEACH PARTY bottom. Pahp, pahp! I got him that time. 870 Captain Alec Wilson commandingnj One by one they awake, stow their hammock in some con- venient boat, lend a hand in turning out the valiant '4Alec" and go below for detail breakfast. Then the smoking lamp is lit on the forecastleg someone persuades "Frenchy" O'Brien to strike ten bells, and the Plebes lay forward for their morning exercise. Some choose racing over the riggingg but the favorite sports seem to be hauling at a pudding which mysteriously flies up from over the side, or heaving out a stopper to the gentle music of a youngster boat- swain's pipe. Toward noon "Doc Dip" appears on deck fcries of "Pahp! Pahp, pahp!" fore and aft, and sings out, "All hands upanchor! Lay aft the bugler! Make sail P' The Youngsters lay below. .After luncheon the captain comes up for his daily constitutional and the Cuspidor's crew, routed from their haunts on the bridge, lay forward to the jibnet to compose songs. Supper past, the Forty-four gather on the forecastle to sing them-and then for the weekly hunt. Two chosen hares tear aft yelling wildly, down the main hatch, up the com- panionway, followed by a howling mob of yapping hounds who are "in at the deathv' on the quarterdeck. Doctor Dippy, chilled to the marrow by this unseemly commotion, desists from killing flies and nabs one of the hounds fusually Pedroj as he trails past his stateroom. "Ah! So. You are one of these Indians who make strange noises aboard this ship-sound like 'Pahpl Pahpl' It's a conspiracy, but you can't get me-I'll fool you yet." Just before taps fwhen the sessions and cold hands are getting into full swingj the nervous souls stroll aft to view the morrow's pap sheet-edited by Doctor Dippy, as follows: AINswo1vrH-"Refusing absolutely to man the ash-whip when urged to do so."

Every one of the crew was picked, and their unswerving loyalty, from the skipper to the last seaman, more than justified their commander's judgment. Our good ship, the Pleab, specially constructed for us, I was of 217 tons, wooden throughout, rubber bottom, and propelled f""i" 9 by a 2.50 H. P. Brotherhood gas engine, using bone producer. The :Wi account of the trip I will take verbatim from the ship's logbook: September 30, 1906-Our party assembled and we bade good- a, -- bye to civilization. After a little trouble with some huge logs, we met our first danger in the breakers around the rocky island Semyan, ' so called from the ancient Middic, meaning Place of Death, because of the huge piles of bone with which its shores are strewn. ,far I February 15, 1907-Here a wave swept our decks as we threaded the reefs and carried off' several of the crew.

A sip invigorated us and while our leader nailed our o banner to the pole we danced about it in an ecstasy of joy singing "The Girl I Left Behind Me.,' Nf- L ,WX Z f --Z X .ff- iw, H U V I 'L 4 I: lf, E: 5 fi l 25 ii V, ,!e F 4 THE GOAL 873 ELL, old Guardian of the Law," said the O. D. at the gate to his brother in arms, "the game is over and everybody will be bound out in town. You want to watch that hollow square formation with the grades inside-all the hard boys think they can slip out in the crowd. Who's this coming?" "Say," says Spuds Ellis, sauntering up, "have you seen the Harp go out? The O. C. is wise that he is frenching, and you know Pat, ---" Follows an engrossing discussion. Of course the 0. D. hasn't seen the Mickg Spuds has previously ascertained that he is in Sick Quar- ters. At last Spuds turns around with a righteous air. "Gee, I wish I could go out in town, but I'm on the grade," and he saunters away dejectedly. Then like a Hash it comes over the O. D. "Say, old War Horse, how many of Spuds' gang slipped out while I was talking to him? What, all six? Sure was clever. Give him a free pass if he comes back." "Now, here comes a heavy fusserg he goes at it like a business man. Note that get-there, nonchalant, walk? He's got to sing for seven Crabs this afternoon. Conduct grade? Never, he couldn't afford it. Why, he has a precedence list of desirable Annapolitans, begins at the top and goes as far down as he can. What's the use of all these crazy Crabs when there are lots of girlsi-? Policy, my boy, policy." "Ah, I-Iere's quite a different sort. That lost look, that worth-all-the-rest expression, that steady smile that lightens his face in this world of sorrow, that happy anticipation---- gad, he's in love, that chap. Pd pass him if he were on the ,nth,, lucky mortal." "No, you won't get Doc, either. He's on first at last, but don't ask me how he did it, or how many investigations he dodged. Pug? Where? Jove, that's a queen. Say, I know her, too." Raising his voice. "How do you do, Miss --?" "When you can fuss that kind, old boy, --- third grade, Pug? Well, I guess the queen is on first anyway." "Who is this coming with a rag, and a bone, and so forth? Guess he's on duty, too. And he's workin' hard--pass him! Maybe he needs the mark, I've been there myself. Who? Just now? Over the wall? Spuds? Well, he's honest at least. Policy is the best honesty for a healthy midshipman these days. That makes all seven out there--say, watch this gate a while like a good chap, will you? I've just got to have a skag." 374 lon u, Ls ull Qtlgristmas DAILY REPORT OF CONDUCT of Midshipmen attached to the United Stages Navnl Acndvuny. null. nlulavuzrl. umnfnvn omcn nv Qhfiigiijk' WM c',b.f....eCff,f.2M,1...,1.faf vm VL.

For At and his lobster-who showed circus training by riding on the taxiwheel-created much excitement, especially when they or- dered the doorkeeper at Maxim's to open in the name of the "cousin of Bill Taft, or stand by to get fired." The picture of the dazed and befuddled lobster reclining in the celery dish with a cigarette in either claw, or of the same lobster in lonely state upon the rear seat of a. taxi, is not one to be imagined except by one who was "among those present."

Soon I feel my head grow dizzy And the wheels begin to turn, As I try my best to savvy nr Uma ibznrz And my mind fills up with fancies And I find myself once more Back in Bancroft Hall a-boning As I did in days of yoreg Round me lie in heaped confusion Books my predecessors wrote- Barton, Bieg, and Muir, and Bullard With a lot of lesser note. 9 Things I wasn't built to learn- Seamanship and Navigation, Juice and Steam and Ordnance, Boiling, seething in my coco Like a big slumgullion stew. Such a. strain upon my headpiece Puts it wholly out of gearg I'm responsible no longer For the things I see and hear. Right before my very ojos Passes all the motley crew- Everything imaginable, One by one and two by two. too, Bending moments, volts and amperes, Ohms and epicyclic trains, Deviation coeflicients Do a snake dance through my brains Gyroscopes and Poisson's Ratio, Neutrals and belligerents, Solve it with the omnimetre fCosts you only sixty centsj. 878 First to cross my line of vision Is a red hot loxodrome, Making ninety miles a second, Measured by the standard ohm. Next man up is Doctor Zeuner, He that made the diagram, Casually glances at me And inquires who I am. Then Marcq St. Hilaire and Sumner Come cavorting into view, With a radius of gyration Neatly stowed between the two. Next, a moment of inertia, On the rampage, as it were, Tries to shoot the sun by moonlight With a dynamometer. Then an alternating current Blows in accidentally, Brandishing the final limits Of proportionality. And a dygogram most awful, That I'm doomed by Fate to meet Scares me nigh to death by saying I am crazy with the heat. Fearful visions come before me Of my mind completely wrecked, And the last faint trace of reason, Leaves my tortured intellect. Suddenly, from out the stillness Of the night, the cry comes "Boat ahoyll' Ah! the quartermaster hailing,- I could almost howl for joy. What a weight is lifted from me When I find that after all I am safe aboard and anchored Many miles from Bancroft Hall! Yes, thank Heaven, I'm no longer In the old U. S. N.

We have been jumping up and running to formation whenever we hear that bell for four years. 0h! it's awful! I don't care if there are only four more months. Just think! Jump out of bed, rush through meals, three recitations, one drill-and then all over again the next day, and the next, and the next. And four years of it. Oh, that's an outrage! TUBBY Thank Heaven there are only four more in nnths in here. I'm going to resign sure. This is no place for a man anyway, you're never hoineg you never have any money, you can't get married. What's the use of being out of college if you can't get married. I can make enough money to get married on in a year as a cit. Why, I wouldn't join the Mutual Aid, never! Why, life insurance is much better-it's a better investment, and-it means more for your wife. ' TIM You can all talk, but I'm surely going to resign in June. Why, look here, this Navy is the worst place in the world-you never get justice. Anyone who wears a few more stripes than you can do anything he wants and you can't do anything about it. I'm going to write maga- zine articles showing this place up for what it really is. They lie to you, they're unfair to you, they put you down and then trample on you. So what's tl1e use? DUTCH I wouldn't stay in this place for all the money they could offer me. No one but a greaser gets on here. Any ofhcer will spoon on a greaser, a good man who knows something never gets a show. Why, Skip and I were in the engine-room on the "Chi" and we knew everything about it, could have run it and did for days-we got buzzards and a bum grease, another man who doesn't know where the throttle is hands in pretty sketches, takes seventeen star sights in one night-he's an efhcient officer and gets three stripes.

N., COMMANDING. 389 Zlliltraanunzrn :fables Erbs fable of the ibeaup :Fussen THERE Came to Uncle Sam's nursery One day A gen- - , A X tleman of Hibernian features and a Way of Talking ' that sounded as Though he used a Macomb Strainer on His voice. In a short While it became Apparent that He was Some bones when it Came to the heavy Fussing Gag, and Could give his nearest competitor Big and little casino and cards And then Beat him to the Finish. In spite Of C the fact That his countenance Resembled the cross-Section of a Soft-boiled spud, he Was certainly right There when it Came to Filling Up the hop-card, and though his Name had never Been connected With any desperate Feats on the gridiron Or in a Shell, it was noted That there were Several who gazed on him with Plain symptoms of Hero- worship. Better looking Men than he VVorried themselves over it But all he Would tell when Asked for his System Was that it was Probably due to His West Haven savoir faire-and he Hardly Batted an eyelid in Saying it. One Day There came to Crabtown a femme to Whom the fame of Jack tl1e lady killer Had not penetrated. Owing to the great Rep that preceded her The fusser got a dance on her card. When he sallied Forth to make a hit With his Special brand of Boston the Young lady Told him it made her seasick. MORAL! This is not West Haven. i fltbe fable of the Assiuuuus pin 3 WHEN the Clarion call for The youth of the Country finally reached Hiluja back in 1901 there Answered it a Strange being who could probably have Thrown light on the Disappearance of the Lost Ten Tribes. At least That is what The profs. all Thought. After Four years of steady answering it He finally reached -First Class year. Having Set his mind on two or Three stripes He lost no time After being Assigned to a historic Q ship, and Soon had Them all Slimed to a Fare-you-well, and As he Drove K ,X the Pie-wagon his Classmates couldn't Kick-much. Sure enough, His personal Plea for More Grease Marks was acted upon and He found himself the Proud Possessor of One large gold stripe. His Room was Near K the Mess hall exit and To his great dismay Many Rough-neck friends Insisted on smoking His good Bull at 32c. and Not content with that, Broke his Furniture, And got Him on the Pap generally. Then some Underclass friends-He had Lots of Friends while his Bull lasted-came in and Smoked and then the House was Pinched. The efficient, though Semitic, gentleman exchanged his Stripe for Fifty Dis and restriction. MORAL: Down with the Foreign Element. 390 Qtbe ,fable uf the Gauge young Span HOUGH meek and Mild when a Plebe a Certain young man Gradually got over It as he Became older, until by Second Class year he had Gone to the Extent of Wearing a Flannel Shirt instead of a Sweater. When he Got to His room after Study call had Busted he Would don the Relic and Parade around the corridors with it on. Now in Spite of the Fact that this young Man was a savoir, and played Tennis and Sang in his room During study hours, he Was not liked by The four- striper Who roomed next Him. After a few weeks the Latter met our Hero in the corridor and Frapped him on the Pap. As a Result he got Several Demerits and, Worst of all, the Shirt was confiscated. Whenever, in Recounting the affair Later, he gets to This part his Voice breaks and Goes considerably above High C, and the Meeting promptly adjourns. MORAL: Either Grease up the Four-striper, or Change Your Shirt. Glue ,fable of the fourth LEP. cn. HERE once was a Man who was in the same Company with Several Plebes. The man Occupied a position of High trust, if you let The high-school Paper tell it. In the Vernacular he was a Fourth P. O. This may have been Why the rest of His company called Him Sargent. What the Plebes called Him I won't say Because this book is all censored before going to Press. The man Had an Idea that Plebes' shoulders should meet in the Rear like a Pair of furled Wings, and He was Sure that the Chin should Never precede the Larynx. The few Plebes Who were So poorly designed as to Fail in These specifications waited until Christmas Day and What they Didn't do then was invisible to the Naked - eye. The next Term the Man got Two stripes in the Same com- ' pany. Let Us pull the Curtain. MORAL: VVait till You get him Outside. "1'vIs wArrED FOUR YEARS FOR 'rHIs', 391 392 X-QF' Q Els :mv ' 4 A A .

Jack Wellbrock in the great play of the Ghetto. Mr. Wellbrock shows his versatility by appearing as the popular class secretary, the bland politician, the married man, the caterer, and the athlete felass numeralsj. Touching drama of the artistic temperament. When the Music Master fMetzj plays his violin the audience goes wild. Continuous performance. Large company. Al- together a fourth-class production. T. Meyer, assisted by the whole First Class, in his great moral scene never fails to win encomiums from the O. C's. With Elmer in the title role-in fact, as the whole show-this could not but be a howling farce. Bennion in the great home play. A pathetic drama of the Far West. This has the original funny paper scene beaten a block. Sid Berry, as Little Nemo, has many won- derful experiences, all of which turn out to be dreams. Very laughable.

"0h,,' he replied proudly, "I am going to keep it. It is my first winning game as captainf' AN officer of the Hartford was conducting the tour of the rope-walk in Boston. He came to one machine labelled "Dangerous," a coil of rope covering the ND." He puzzled over it until his eye fell on the sign, and then he said, "Now, gentlemen, this is the Angerous machine and is one of the most important in the plant. Pay particular attention to it.', WALLY was inspecting one night and heard an unusual noise in Ellis's room. He entered and found Spuds on the table, finned out like a Plebe, while Marsh and Lee were madly chasing themselves around it. "VVhat is the meaning of this, gentlemen P" "Well, sir,,' answered Spuds, "you see Pm a resultant and Marsh and Lee are components." FAT Romscu did not attend the class meeting when the hop committee men were chosen, as he had little interest in such matters. After the meeting was over a crowd poured into his room and congratulated him on being elected. Mary became very much excited and with a bashful but proud smile he thanked the boys for their appreciation, adding that he hardly thought he was the man. "Nevertheless--J' BOOKS under his arm and head up in the air, he was marching proudly down Maryland Avenue when Spuds passed him without deigning to notice his presence. '5Halt!" he cried. Spuds halted in his tracks. "VVhy did not you salute me P" "Are you an instructor ?" asked Spuds, innocently. "Yes, I'm an instructor." "Oh, you kiddo!" said Spuds, tapping him on the chest and walking on. 405 3L' QEnhoi WITH NO AFOLOGIES hen the " Enrkg mag" is tinisheh anh nur pens are laih asihe. when me haue tinisheh strtuing nnnre mpg tn prnuihe. me shall rest. anh faith, me shall neeh tn, nn "late lights," nur mark In hu.

IV An hygienic condition of the mouth can best be attained I I by the systematic use of A brief treatise upon the care of the teeth, together with a booklet descriptive of Listerine, may be had upon application to the manufacturers, Lambert Pharmacal Company, St: Louis, Mo., U. S. A., but the best advertisement of Listerine is- Listerine. Be assured of the genuine by purchasing an original package. L.ister-ine Tooth Powder A fourth of a century of continued, satisfactory employment of Listeiine has demonstrated to many who have used it during this entire period, that Listerine is the best antiseptic for daily employment in the care and preservation of the teeth. Listerine Tooth Powder, then, is not intended to supplant Listerine in the daily toilet of the teeth, but is offered as a frictionary dentifrice to be used in conjunction with this well-known and time-tried antiseptic. Listerine Tooth Powder, like Listerine, will advertise itself by its intrinsic merit. Listerine Talcun-1 F-fowder A An excellent absorbent and deodorant, particularly adapted for use after shaving, and indispensable in the nursery to prevent soreness and chafing. As an antiseptic dusting powder for the relief of pruritus, prickly heat, and other conditions of dermal irritation, it is unequalled. The antiseptic qualities of Listerine contained in this powder are of sufficient strength to prove beneficial without causing irritation to the most delicate skin. Listerine Talcum Powder well answers every requirement of a toilet powder. Listerine Derrnatic Soap A bland, unirritating and remarkably efficient soap designed to meet the most exacting requirements of a saponaceous detergent. It is composed of vegetable oils, chief among which is olive oil: before it is "milled" and pressed into cakes it is "super-fatted" by the addition of an emollient oil, after which there are added the antiseptic oils fthyme, eucalyptus, menthol and gaultherial which have contributed to make Listerine the most successful formula of modern pharmacy. Listerine Dermatic Soap is of especial value in preventing cutaneous affections. - - , g m. 15. 1621115 8a Gln.
