The various drills and practical exercises imder the Department are to train us in the discharge of respon- sibilities and to give us practice in the exercise of command. The entire course in jihysical training is under this Department. This includes all forms of gymnasimii work, field and track sports, s imming and sailing, and all atliletic contests and exhibitions. The various drills in artillery and infanti-y are liehl under discipline officers. 23 (ibr Dcj-iartuinit of ramaufllitp (i " lmmall rr iy. if. ISjittrbiiiim. 11. .

Xavv. hi this we study the h;inilHiig of the boats of a ship luuler sail, oai-s aiul steam, boats in a seaway, ,s;;eneral prineiples of saihng, the systems t;f signaling:, ami so forth. Later on. KnightV Seamanship is studied. The course then becomes more general, including a study of the rigging and handling of a sailing vessel, the process of manufacture of rope, chain, and ancliors, the u es of blocks and tackles, together with such practical subjects as the lowering of a boat in heavy weather, rescuing man over- board, the steering of steamers, towing, and the rescuing of the crew of a wreck. P.y the use of excellent models in the Sea- manship lUiilding, and by the actual handling of boats at lrill a verv clear understanding of the work covered by the text- books is gained. During the summer crui-es we have duties as officers of the deck, boat ofticers, helmsmen, signalmen and leadsmen, and then have excel- lent opportunity for learning to apjily what we have -tudied. Toward the end of Second Class year Tactical Signal Books are loaned us, and the course in signals is then completed. In h ' irst Class year the work becomes of a deqier nature, involving a study of the man(euvring of a ship singly and in formation, formations and evolnli ins, battle tactics, tactical problems, and the problems of chasing, intercepting, searching and couting. The text-book used is Grant ' s School of the Ship. Later in the first term T.rittain ' s l-.lements of . aval Warfare is studied. This is a jiurely theoretical sul)iect, dealing with the general consideration of naval warfare. Then come the .study of such parts of the .Xavy Regulations a- relate to the rank, command and duty of officers, the h.mors paid to officials and to officers of high rank, and the particular duties of the officer of the tleck and the divisional officers. I- ' inally, we have a course in Inter- national Law with particular reference to that part wdiich concerns the Xavy, together with Military Law, dealing with the subject of Boards, Courts of Inquiry, and Summary and General Courts Martial. ahr arpartmrnt nf (rtr ttaltrr an (6umtrru !:ltmmau r ffi.

In this we learn le hanilling of the crew of a ship for , ' or field artillery. The study is )esides the mechanical maiucuvring first aid to the voun led. camping and camp hygiene, patrols, ceremonies, and the method of con- ducting small arms target practice, . fter this we study ship and gun drills. Under this comes the organization of gun crews, drills for varin-us types of guns, emergency drills, the inspection, marking and stowage of ammunition, torpedo drills and the methods of conducting physical exercises. Later in the year a general text-book on ordnance is studied. In this we take up guns and m;-unts and the process of manufacture, ex- p losives of all kinds, manufacture, use and stowage: armor, its manufacture, di-p. )-,iti(in and the method of securing it to a ship: magazines, location and care: ammunition, hoists, and a general description of mine fields. In b ' irst Class year the confidential pamphlets on service torpedoes are studied. These give us an accurate descri])tion of all ])arts and their functions, the care of torpedoes and mines, and the use of each. We then take up .Mger ' s ICIastic Strength of Guns, covering the calculations of strains to which giuis are sub- jected in firing and the strength of material necessary to .stand these strains, h ' .xterior I ' .allis- tics is the ne.xt subject, covering the motion of projectiles, the computation and use of ballistic tables, the derivation of formuke for the correction of errors of fire and the penetration of pro- jectiles. The last work is in gunnery instructions, giving us the methods of training crews, spot- ting shells at target [jractice and the scheme of fire control. .Ml during the course practical exer- cises with service ;;).(; mV supplement the book wi irk. Included in this practical work are small arms target practice and fencing. Spotting and fire cunlrol are taught by our actually using guns and targets, on a reduced scale, faithfully reproducing target practice conditions. alir Drj-iarlmrnt nf •JCmityatimt (£llmnum ■ (6. i . iBanirll.

The subject, known familiarly to ii as Xaw is first taken np in the second term of Second Class year. White ' s Astronomy is studied with the idea of havin;;- us yet a general idea of the solar system, the causes of seasons, cause of tides, eclipso, phases of the moon and other iihen imena. Toward the end of the term Xavi-alion in its true sense is started, our text hook hem- -Muir, with r.owditch ' s Tahles, Nautical Alm.anacs, and Azimuth les as auxiliaries. ' I ' lie instrununts used in na igati n — compass, log and lea l, se.xlant. artificial horiz(jn. ]ielorus, of chart construction, the instruments used i ' n chart work, and the meaning of chart terms, are studied an.! used practically. h:iemeiitary methods of fixing the position of a vessel hoth at sea and near land are studied S(.i as to give us some knowledge of navigation with which to start on the practical work of first class cruise. ( )n the ciaiise. each l- ' irst Classman is re(|uired each day to take sights, and therehy fix the pisition (if the ship at noon, to determine the course and distance made gocd since noon of the da ' before, the direction and strength of the currents encountered, and the course and distance to the point of destinatii.Mi. The various methods of fixing the ship ' s [. ' osition are learned jiractically so that in l- ' irst Class _ ear the mathematical exi)lanations are much more tangible than they w..uld otherwise he. The three weekly recitations are on theoretical work, in- tical works are gi ' en. in general, covering the work of the wx-ek. h ' rom time to time chart wcn ' k is given, courses and distances being laid down a;id taken ot " f as in practice at sea. Xearh all of the examinations are thoroughly practical. In the second term the Theory of Com|)ass Devia- tions is studied and the various methods of compensation with Iheir mathematical explanations taken up. ' J ' he course also includes the elements of surveying. At the end of llu- ye.ar e.ach h ' irst Classman constructs a complete chart of a ])orlion of the Severn River from data obtained (huing the s|)riug drill i)eri(jds by surveying [)arties of miilshipmen. 29 MARINE ENGINEERING and NAVAL CONSTRUCTION ilht Dr uirtimntt uf iHartur lEuyiurin-iuy auii Naiuil (Couatrurtiini tfa ttaiii if.

In Third ■k is in Machine Draw- ing, free hand sketches being required of all models. In the second term we study Mechanical Processes, using Barton ' s text book. This subject covers the making of patterns, forgings and castings, the manufacture of iron and steel and the machin- ing of metal with all machinery used. In Second Class year, (luring the first term, we have Naval lioilers and Elements of Alechanism. Under Boilers, we study the various service types and the care and management of boilers in general. In Mech- anisms we learn the difi ' erent methods of transmitting motion — by links, lielts, gears, cams and so forth, the mathematical as well as the practical part of the subject being covered. In the second term the wi rk is in Barton ' s Xaval hjigines and Machin- of engines and their au.xiliaries, the method of organizing ship and the care and handling of machinery. In First term two subjects are studied. The first is Xaval Con- book. In this we get a general knowledge of the method of de- uling all the caL-ulations involved. The (jther subject is Experi- riiis gi es descri])tions of the various measurements, 1 in engineering, . fter this we study I ' .arton ' s Internal Combustion ■s of internal combustion engines of any practical value.

Second term work is in Brown ' s Graphic Algebra and in i!ro vn " s Trigonometry and Stereographic Projections. The last two .subjects are studied very thoroughly to give a foundation for the navigation of Second and iMrst Class years. In Third Class year we study Calculus, differential and integral. The entire year is spent on this subject on account of its practical use later in the course in such pn.iblems as finding the displacement of a ship. In the first term of Second Class year our work is in Mechanics, using Johnson ' s Mechanics as a text book. With this subject the course becomes a trifle more practical, dealing with the mathematics of motions, friction, and resistances, the application of mecliauical principles to simjjle machines and to instruments, and with kinematics and dynamics in general. .Another valuable subject is that of Hydromechanics, which deals with the laws and the action of fluids at rest and in .motion. In the second term we study Smitli ' s Strength of Material. This is a math- ematical consideration of the method of finding the strain in an - part of a structure or machine and the calculations for finding the size of parts. It includes the theory of structures, the strength and deflection of beams, the strain on rivets, an l the proper sjjacing of rivets, and other sifljjects of a similar nature involving the calculation of stresses and strains. The practical application of most of the mathematics of Second Class year is given ns in other de]iartnu ' nls, — notably ] Iarine I " ngineering and Ordnance. PROF. OF [.

' i ' lic work enihraces a study of the various stanchirds, — length, mass, and so forth, — and the several systems of units used, gravitation and the measurement of the mass and weight of the earth, the resolution of a force into component forces, the action of liquids and gases at rest and in motion, and atmospheric pressure, causes and effects. The greater iiart of the time we spend on heat, light and sound, covering the theory of wave forms, the retlection, refraction and interference of waves, the theory of ether waves, the sub- iects of the production and propagation of the three forms of energy, the law ' S of thermo-dynamics, the theory of exchanges, — conduction, radiation, and convection, — and other subjects of a similar nature. We perform a great many experiments in the splendidly equipped laboratory and are required to fully exjjlain them later in our note books. These experiments are designed to illustrate and sup- plement the course of study and to lead to the intelligent and skillful use of the instruments of precision used in measurements and tests. In CHEM1STR , which we study middle part of the year, Renisen ' s Introduction to the Study of Chemist The course in this subject is not at all intended to develop chemists give us a thorough understanding of the properties of tin in chemical compounds to enable us to fully understand such practical subjects as the composi- tion of explosives and the composition and analysis of smoke pipe gases, .subjects that arc taken up in detail in other departments. A sli irt course in chemical analysis is given to illus- trate the method of procedure in analyzing a com])ound whose component elements are not known. A large part of the time is spent in the chemical laboratory numerous experiments, ex|)laining them in note Ijooks. PROF. N. M. TERRY, U. S. N. ig the used.

Our work begins in Second Cla-s year. Jn Thompson ' s I ' dectricity and Magnetism we first learn the purely theoretical side of the subject. This in- cludes a study of magnets together with the instnuucnts used in calculating the intensity of the earth ' s magnetism, jjrimary cells (jf all the different types and the various methods of grouping them, (he instruments use;! in the measurement of electric eunents, — voltmeters, amnutei , galvanometers, and so on, — the X-rays, and the the ry of dynamos and motors. Our work becomes more and more practical as the year advances until finally we take up Ballard ' s Naval Electrician ' s Hand Cook. In this we study the actual apparatus used on board ship and thoroughly learn it. A great deal of our time is spent •oMDi- w (• rvii RD u s N ' " ' " practical operation of dynamos and motors and on the theor - and practice of wireless telegraphy and wireless tele- ph.ny. The work in fTrst Class year is thoroughly [iractical, embracing a study of all the apparatus found on board our ships. This includes the care and manipulation of storage batteries, the construction of induction coils,— used in wireless work— the study of generators and motors both for direct and for alternating current, switchboards and distribution panels, and the complete wdring system used on ships, rheostats, con- trollers and circuit breakers, work with motors for turret training, gun elevating, and gun loading equipment, a study of all means of electrical communication, the methods of measuring resistances and a thorough course in the location and correction of faults in the installation of a ship. The laboratory is fully equipped, having everything found on hoard a man-of-war. The installation is complete in every detail and during the many drills and iiraclical work periods we are required to run the machines ourselves. During the snmer we stand regular electrician ' s watches and wdreless watches and so become thoroughly familiar with the i)ractical operation of the plant and with the sending and receiving of wireless messages.

Themes on original subjects are re(|uired in great inimher, the idea heiug not ,, much to cul- tivate originality of th..ught as to give exercise in its correct expression. To this end our themes are most carefully cor- rected in accor lauce with suggestions from the instructors. Our work in the second term of I ' ourth Class year is mainly on the study of the Constitution of the United .States. Theme work is cnutiinied along the same lines a- iu the first term. In Thir.l Class ye ar we study . meriean . aval History, with the underlying idea of gaining knowledge of wdiat has been done by our navy in the past and insi)iration for what is to be done iu the future. We read a number of Knglisli and . mericau classics and recite on them, giving us illustrations and examples of vari.uis styles of writing and encouraging the reading of the best literature. Themes arc required on the subject in hand, though themes on original subjects are from time to time asked for. . very useful part of the course is iu the composition of official letters, dispatches, and telegrams in accordance with the forms prescribed by Navy Regulations.

' I ND Y is one of the happy quartet who were un- avoidably detained, and missed the West Point Game this last year. He is a good-natured Southerner who never rhinoes, and is truly reticent when it comes to his own troubles. Seldom known to be out of the makes, and never studies too hard to spare the time to " catch one " . He is one of the few men inside the Academy walls who know the real purpose of the Reception Room and Memorial Hall, compelled thereto by stern necessity. He spends a great deal of his spare time writing letters, and incidentally gets quite a few. When the two-bell system was inaugurated in the Mess Hall, it was undoubtedly meant for John, and spells accelerate " .

Be- fore entering the Academy, he spent three years at the Seattle High School. ||NDY is a husky, clear-skinned athlete who has combined his physical and intellectual growth with so much discretion that neither has suffered. On the baseball field he is the old reliable, and when Andy steps into the box everyone heaves a sigh of relief. His bulk and good-natured face inspire confidence, and his record sustains it. Being a " south-paw " , he has evolved the weirdest, and most back-hand method of writing at a desk that our class can boast. That he gets there just the same is proved by the many drawings he has contributed to this book. When not lured away by a good book or a pressing letter, he bones conscientiously, puts up good recitations in the section room, and consistently adds a tenth or two to his mark by his brace and attention.

A loyal member of the old topgallant Ninth, and a charter- member of all its secret societies, his cronies are all to be found in that happy-go-lucky crowd. Smokes the most evil-smelling pipe in the Academy, and when Ote enters with that pipe, others go. He was a rifle team man well on the way to make good, but decided that the First Class Cruise was worth more to him than a brown N.

That is the first impression one has of Supe, but he has seriousness in his brain which does not show in the merry twinkle of his eye. One of the best shots the Academy has ever had, he became captain of the team after three years of hard and consistent work. His Jacob ' s Ladder of expert bars would put an Austrian Diplomat to shame. Supe is of a rough-house disposition at times, and is responsible for much of the broken glass about Bancroft Hall. He longs for the old days of rates and rathskellers when as a " kid in the yard " he used to throw snowballs at those who now throw three-eights at him. Shaves faithfully every two weeks. Supe dearly loves a big liberty, whether it ' s his grand passion-bowling at the Magnet, or a taxi-cab joy ride in Boston. He has one serious ambi- tion,— to make good with a turret-crew.

Befofi entering the Na-val Academy he spent one year at Tuft ' s College. Medford. Massachusetts, ' where he became a member of Tuft ' s Engineering Society. cAppointed to the Academy from Massa- chusetts. IARLOS is quiet, almost solemn, with steady blue-grey eyes, and expressionless face. No one has ever seen him aroused. He is afflicted with the Massachusetts pronunciation and an extreme partiality for everything that hails from that part of the country. " Havahd " is his standard of educational institutions, and the Naval Academy often suffers by comparison. He reads his day-old Boston paper perfectly sure that he is getting as up-to-date information as the man who has just purchased the latest New York daily. From Howell, with whom he roomed three years, he learned how to smile, which he does on exceptional provo- cation. Although Carlos is somewhat of a hermit, and prefers his own room and negligee clothes to anything else, there is considerable fun and dry humor in his make-up, apparent to those who know him. It crops out now and then m little practical jokes. f ]obti JIbsalotti Baird I ' John Absalom Baird ' mas born at Fort Meyer, Va.. on June 23, 1890.

Before entering the Academy, he spent three years at St. Luke ' s School, Wayne, Pennsyl ' bania. JURING his career at the Naval Academy, Jack has been on the leeward side of a 2.5 about as often as any of us, but invariably makes good when its " up to him ' and comes out all right. He is reserved rather than quiet, and when he blossoms out on hop-nights with his cherubic smile and routhful air, gets the pick of the fair contingent for his card. Though not very talkative, he is always happy, and is one of the few who have not sworn to resign on graduation. He lost his first love during Youngster year when a stern Academic Board removed the irresponsible lucker from our midst, and this last year has enjoyed peaceful immunity under the wing of one of our sturdy three- stripers. His ever-ready smile and sweet disposition have won him scores of friends. i ) Philip Randolph BaKer •PHII.

AKE jumped into fame and to a broken arm toward the close of Plebe year and grafted three months sick-leave as a result. He found it so easy that he has been living along the lines of least resistance ever since. His quiet and innocent expression have won him an unde- served immunity from the O. C.

He has a thirst for excitement, and cherishes an ambition of becoming a soldier of fortune, or a South American dictator. An inveterate reader, and the greatest living authority on Omar.

He graduated from Hudson High School, Hudson, Mass., and -vjas appointed to the Academy from Massachusetts. RITZ is a true Bostonian who would rather delve in Chaucer, Shelley, or Scott than go to a ball- game or a hop. Thinks that heaven is made up of Morris chairs, bath-robes, pipes, and an inexhaustable supply of books, not forgetting an all-morocco, gilt-edged edition of Omar Khayyam to boot. He is a good boxer, and more than once has shown his sand, being rather difficult to convince. One of the fencing squad, and handles both foil and cane with some dexterity. Once, a long while ago, he dragged to a hop, but the exception proved the rule, and he has since been the reddest of red-mikes. His hasty manner has kept him from having as many intimates as he otherwise would have had, for those who know him best find much to admire in him.

Hudson, Mass., 3nd -Wds appointed to the Academy from Massachusetts. RITZ is a true Bostonian who would rather delve in Chaucer, Shelley, or Scott than go to a ball- game or a hop. Thinks that heaven is made up of Morris chairs, bath-robes, pipes, and an inexhaustable supply of books, not forgetting an all-morocco, gilt-edged edition of Omar Khayyam to boot. He is a good boxer, and more than once has shown his sand, being rather difficult to convince. One of the fencing squad, and handles both foil and cane with some dexterity. Once, a long while ago, he dragged to a hop, but the exception proved the rule, and he has since been the reddest of red-mikes. His hasty manner has kept him from having as many intimates as he otherwise would have had, for those who know him best find much to admire in him. He proved his mettle by lasting a term as the wife of Count Von Erlanger Bode. fiarold Cerry Bartktt •HAROLD " •ClIUS- -BART " I ro vn , Rifle Team 3. 2. 1 1. F.xpert Bi.

He ivas appointed to the Academy from the 2nd Oregon. %i MAN of varied and cosmopolitan attainments. Short, swarthy, and stocky; soft-voiced and quick of temper, he is apt to give one the impression of a rhino temperament. On the contrary, that is not one of his failings. One of the old stjcth company, and a leader in the famous " night riders " of Youngster year. Likes " guhls " very much, especially the little ones, and has a different " guhl " at each hop. Has done good work on the gym team each year, and does the giant swing to perfection. He bones con- scientiously when he does bone, but likes a rough-house now and then to liven things up a bit. Received a gift of umpty- steen demerits one Christmas morning as a result of the tragedy of the closed room. Captained a very successful cruise on the Argo during First Class Leave. Biff is a true, good sport whose worst enemy is himself. " Hullo, boys. Where you-all goin ' ? Ha !

" Very quiet until you know him well, then oft- times he will wax enthusiastic on some topic of the day— baseball perhaps or maybe therapeutics. Believes that singing is about the best sport going, and has lecf the choir to triumphant death during the last year. The quiet perseverance of four years has greatly increased his store of knowledge, but has not removed a characteristic stage-fright in the section-room, which shows itself in drops of perspiration and decidedly wiggley knees. He never busts either. A very sensible chap, with a good bit of natural reserve, he has not breezed himself into the hearts of everybody. But we admire him for his inability to go about vending superheated atmosphere, and those who have come in contact with him have found out his great worthiness. Always looks on the bright side of things and never rhinoes. Ulilliam Edgar Baugbtnan Finals in Boxing Special ' Weight Track Squad Born in Cool. California, on July 28, 1890. Li ' ved in California. Attended Sacramento High School, and graduated from there. Appointed from California. N affable little chap with a walk that bids fair to rival the motions of our old friend the oscillating engine, but gets there just the same. Dislikes sham in words or deeds, and lives up to this dislike by being frank and sincere himself. Bockie has a great deal of reserve, but once you get past that moral barrier you will find a man pleasant, agreeable, and interesting. Believes thoroughly in the manly art of self-defence, and is a bully little fighter, for he nearly captured one of those coveted Academy championships. One of the rougest of the Rouge Mikes, disliking petticoats in general and hobble-skirts in particular. Has a keen sense of humor which sometimes makes itself evident in pungent witticisms. Is very neat and methodical. Always greets you with a cheerful smile, and seems to be contented with the Navy as it is seen behind stout Academy walls.

Graduated from Wells High School, Wells, Minnesota. Present home address, Knapp, Wi N easy-going chap from IViinnesota whose habits and characteristics savour more of Arkansas or Georgia, Bernhard came to us a quiet and serious lad and he is going to leave us a quiet and serious man. As a member of the " old fourth " he had endeared himself to " the hearts of the people, " and it was a great disappointment to him, and to the others when First Class year found him detached from the old crowd. He has brought Conrad and others through many critical stages and has been known to throw away his own chances on many occasions to help others. Has a posi- tive dread of girls and never goes to the hops, even to hear the music. He stays in his room most of the time, but every Saturday goes out in town for one of those characteristic pompadour hair-cuts, A great chess-player and he spends many valuable study-hours playing with Gilmore.

Before entering the Na ' bal Academy he attended the Red Bank High School and later graduated from Shre ' ivsbury Academy, Red Bank, Neiu Jersey. He entered the Na-hal Academy %tth the Class of 1910, and ixjas turned back after extended sick league. OH ABIT ANT of a " sanctum sanctorum " of classical learning and Modern Dago with Ben Butler, J. H. has always been noted for his studiousness. Before sick-leave sent him to our midst from Nineteen Ten he was the room- mate of ' ' Rusty Peter " Hall, of which fact he is exceedingly proud. Thus it was that, during Second Class year, few indeed were the favorable days that did not find him safely ensconced in the stern sheets of the Five Striper ' s half- rater, with " Rusty " along as admiring passenger and crew. His particular delight, First Class year, was inducing reluctant bilgers among the Plebes in his immediate vicinity in ranks to take a brace. He is generally willing to pick a small bone, but passes up the larger ones. His temper, though present, is confined within equable limits, which, perhaps, is the secret of his inestimable gift of never getting in trouble. Joseph minor Blackwell Joseph Minor Black%iell Huas born in Wa ion, Virginia., on April 20, 1889. He l»eni to the Bethel Military Academy. Warrenton, IJa.. and Tuas appointed to the Academy by the Hon. J. F Rixey from Virginia. unassuming youth who keeps his foot on the soft pedal, and looks at you with those bland blue eyes with an air of continual wonder. This, however, is no true index to Joe ' s char- acter, for there is probably no one in the Class who has as many experiences in Baltimore and all points South as he. If in the mood he will wax eloquent, and spellbind you for hours at a time with the recital ; if not, he is hard to talk to. He is seldom seen at the hops, and then does much of his dancing, " catching one " in a remote corner of the Gym. He enjoys a little game when the crowd is right, and is most natural when punctuating his quiet little side remarks with a puff from his ever-present cigarette. He is noted for his even temper, and those who know him best, like him most. " Let ' s catch one, " Douglas lioward Bode Douglas Hotvaro Bode l as born in Cincinnatt, Ohio, on January 23, 1889.

[HOLD the Count— serene but rhino, graced with a bewitching smile and an exceedingly blase air. A quiet, neat, and unassuming fellow, who dotes on plebes, and had reason to regret the failing. Turns in early on hop- nights, except on unusual occasions when he gives the ladies a treat by stagging. Every one of these special occasions is really his " last appearance. " He is haunted every now and then by visions of Pilsner, sauer- kraut, zwieback, and the U. S. N. A. suffers terribly by com- parison. Is a past-master of the art of sarcasm, and gener- ally keeps the crowd in good humor while he is around. Smokes some kind of a dried plant for a cigar that absolutely couldn ' t let an O.

He graduated from Mason (Texas) High School, and entered the Uni ' vcrsity of Texas soon after. He ivas in his freshman year -when appointed lo the Academy. CARE-FREE Dutchman from the wilds of Texas who is outspoken in his opinions, re- gardless of time and place. Good-looking, with sparkling brown eyes, and possessed of a light, wiry build. Talks with his whole soul and body, and has a most infectious laugh. Pulls a good oar in the crew squad each year, and only his weight has kept him out of the first boat. He prefers follow- ing the hounds with the A. H. C, or rough-housing, to boning. He was a most decided red-mike when he entered, but four years have developed him into a fusser of " first line of battle " rate. He was pleasantly surprised when stripes were dealt out and he was listed with the chosen few. He has a good brace, carries his honors well, and is merely a " holzenkopf, " as he says, but we know better. A good, solid man for a friend, and his friends are legion. r Richard l)cnrv Booth " DICK " " T.

While at home in Sep- tember, 1910, he became a Mason. !H HIS is the old T. Bear. One of the dauntless " Possums " w ho made themselves famous during Second Class leave by tramping the hills of West Virginia. Dick became known as a lover of romance when he climbed down the anchor chain to deliver a note to a fair sailor- maid in Newport Harbor. He is a man who tries to make you believe that he is sore, but who likes nothing better than having the bunch around, running him about his love affairs and his curly hair. In London, while shopping, he refused to buy any article of clothing that did not have " London " labeled upon it. Dick is as he has put it, a ' Big Gruff Devil, " with a heart to match. He has never graced any of the Savvy sections but he is always on hand at the final muster and he will make good where manv " stars " fail, " I ' m Booth.

Legare, from South Carolina. m REAL savoir who has an unlimited supply of theoretical and practical knowledge. Thought out a new theory of wave-motion in the ether, and built a small mechanically perfect engine during his Second Class year. Missed starring Plebe Year because of five demerits, but has amply repaired the omission since then. Noted as a friend of the wooden man, and has saved many members of the old second company. In spite of this they have constantly made his life a burden by their good-natured running. One of the old-guard at fencing, and frequently gives exiiibition of his ability with the broad-sword. Fusses as originally as he does everything else, and is a frequent attendant at the hops, though he never drags the same girl twice. He is short, stubby, and comical in many ways, but is exceedingly capable, and one of whom the Class may expect much. " Come on, let ' s see Herby.

Went three years to the Alleghany Preparatory School, after ivhich he spent tnvo years at St. John ' s College. Annapolis. Was appointed to the Naval Academy from Pennsylvania. LL ready boys, now hip, hip hurray, three rahs for the Billiken Man. A corking chap whose only fault is that his conscience won ' t let him say too many nice things about Bancroft Hall. Louis believes that Leave ought to extend through nine months of the year, arguing that every one could then do much finer work in the three months remaining. Has never been known to smile on Sunday night, thereby demonstrating that liberty is not a good thing —that is for him. Has been heard to utter some wild thoughts about the Coast Artillery, with its attendant warm log fire in that little house on shore. Louis reads a good deal and will argue with anyone on current affairs of the day. He likes Robert W. Chambers, not because his stories are romantic— of course not. Is an extreme anti-red-mike. A fine fellow in every way, and a staunch friend. ■ J mm n Cutber Brown Marvin Luther Br ywn ivas born in Gilliam, Missouri, Feb. 11, 188S. and li ' ved there up to the time he entered the Academy. He graduated from the Gilliam High School, and during the year fol- loHving. taught in ore of Missouri ' s famous dis- trict schools. TYPICAL Missourian, who thinks that the Navy would be all right if there wasn ' t so much water in the ocean, and more soil on a battleship. Has a crab-like motion to his pro- pelling gear which gives him an odd list to port when under way A pair of twinkling, blue eyes behind glasses perched on a very aquiline nose, over which he peers at you in a patriarchal manner, a queer chuckle resembling a chipmunk when amused, — and you have Mose. Reads treatises on deep subjects, is a deep thinker, and argues with the forceful manner of the erstwhile pedagogue. He is very austere to underclassmen, methodical in his ways and manners, and leans toward amateur photography and debating. In the section-room, he rolls his eyes around in a way that has brought him many a reproof. Not much given to fussing, but there may be a reason. Benry TredericK Bruns " PECK " " BRLINO " " HEN " Star (4) Henry Frederick Bruns %as born in Ceredo ' West Virginia, on No ' vember 24, 1889. He grad- uated from the Ceredo High School in 1907. He did not prepare in Annapolis. ENRY IS a pleasant chap who always has some- thing to eat in his room. Surprised himself Plebe Year by starring and has found the place easy ever since. Always willing to help a wooden man and frequently has done so at the expense of his own standing. Rhinoes only on occasions but then he blows off at a very high pressure. Some- what given to procrastination, that leave-it-till-tomorrow ten- dency, but he never leaves it till day-after-tomorrow, so he comes out all right. Peck goes to all the hops and is seldom seen in the stag line, but seriousness in connection with the fair sex never enters his head. Once, after Second Class leave he seemed to have an inward disturbance, or at least he would rhapsodize upon each appearance of the moon, but somehow or other these germs never rest long in Peck ' s system. Bruns has a good brace, common sense and is savvy. " Sir, I ' ve been in the hospital for six weeks. " -: Pat Buchanan P t Buchanan m)as born in Bonham, Texas. on January II. 1SS8. He graduated from the Bonham High School, and afrerward ' went to the University of Texas for one year. i jm u iROM wild and wcxjiy Texas comes h ' at. ne is not at all the sort of chap one has in mind in thinking of a Texan, for with his Tecumseh- like quietness one is seldom aware of his pres- ence. But Pat ' s is not the silence that comes from having nothing to say. It is decidedly golden, for Pat is a steady, consistent student, a thoroughly practical man, and one whose sawiness should not be judged by class-standing. He is a shark in electricity, and one usually finds his room littered with wires, fuses, and instruments which kept the electrician busy putting in fuses, when Pat and Jimmy lived together Second Class year. His quietness has made the number of his intimate friends few, but any one of them will tell you that taking him full and by, Pat is a mighty fine man. Belrnc Saunders Bullard White N2nd, Orange Numerals. Star (2), Lucky Ba Staff, Masqueraders (3) Beirne Sounders Bullard luas born in Baltimore County, Maryland, August 7, 1890. As the son of a Naiial Officer, he has li ' ved in -various states, but claims Maryland. He entered the Annapolis High School, and from there ivent to St. John ' s College for three years. He ivas appointed to the Academy by the Hon. J. W. Babcock, of Wis- consin. AUNDERS is one of the old Navy Juniors who lived around the Yard so long that he remem- bers when the five-striper of the jimmy-legs was an ordinary watch-man. He has always been efficient, drew a buzzard Second Class year, so that we were not at all surprised when he got four stripes this last year. He is a real savoir, who spends little of his time in boning, and infinitely prefers spend- ing his evening study-period over a twenty-page letter. Owing to his good work on the second team, he has made a place on the baseball training-table every Spring. His stripes did not affect him at all, and he remained agreeably touge to the last. He loves a good liberty, and a good time, and spends lots of time reconciling love and duty. A charter member of the old ninth company crowd, and one of its leading spirits. " Stop, you little goose. " J Andes fiailev Butler Andes Hailey Butler luas bom on July ISth. IS90, in AlexandrU. Louisiana. He attended St. Francis Xavier ' s Commercial College at Alexand- ria for six years, after which he ivas one year at Rugby Academy, Ne w Orleans, and one year at Louisiana State Um ' bersity. HIS chubby-faced youth from the land of the sugar cane, is what might be called one of the " characters " of the class. Pinkie is at times very good natured, and on such occasions demonstrates the exuberance of his spirits by sneaking up behind some one and pinching him or boxing his ears. Sometimes gets in trouble for talking too much, but as a rule you ' ll find Pinkie an agreeable fellow, " be it for ' a frolic or a fuss. " Made a record for himself First Class cruise by having a watch officer suspended from duty. Being small, strong as an ox, and quick tempered. Pinkie frequently finds himself wanting to start a scrap, but his better judgment always rules and he compromises by simply sticking out his chin at you.

He is a grad- uate of the Classical High School of Worcester. CT|| HE Enigma of Nineteen Eleven! Known to !l Jj the Class as " Rojo " and " Rofas, " because of - the permanent blush that stains his classic features, or perhaps because of his red-mike tendencies, he is hardly known by the Class, as a result of his quietness and reserve. Like most of us, he has peculiarities, among them a way of reciting that reminds one of a delayed action fuse, and the air of a man of forty. Also, a very marked lack of bad habits, excepting only a large and expressive vocabulary, consisting, metaphorically speaking, of one frog and one lion,— ' ' Well III be dahned! " and " Mercy me! " Ben was the victim of a practical joke Plebe year as a result of which he is a connis- seur in vegetable seeds, merry-go-rounds, baby-foods, and corsets. Seriously though, Ben is a man, one of the most upright and kindhearted in the Class, one respected first, and liked afterwards. 1 James Carroll Byrnes " DOC " " CARROLL " Green N, Track team i4. 3, 2, I I Lucky Ba Committee James Carroll Byrnes ■was born in Norfolk, Va., June 10, 1890, and has spent most of his time there. After attending the Norfolk Academy, and the ' Brooklyn, N. Y. schools, he •went to St. John ' s College, but did not graduate before enter- ing the cAcademy, He tuas appointed at large by President Roose ' belt. T takes just about one minute to find that Doc hails from the " Saouth. " This fact, however, does not keep him from being energetic, and during Plebe year and Youngster year he plugged away on the track, winter and spring, running his mile or two every day, until now he is the Navy ' s crack distance runner, and wears the coveted green N. He is of a musical turn of mind, and though he can ' t sing, constantly warbles the latest song-hit. He also picked up the mandolin during Second Class year, and carries that off very well. Has considerable talent as an artist, and has helped much in the decoration of this book. Not a bonoid, but a good student, and if the medical department will pass his eyes as they have finally done in years before, he will easily make good in the Service. " Look aout.

He l»as appointed from California by Senator Perkins. hN came to the Academy a quiet, steady fellow, and leaves it just as quiet, but steadier. One of the very few men who have not changed their good habits and who have not acquired bad ones. He has a rare combination of straight- forwardness, dignity, and generosity, that makes him one of the most respected and admired men in the Brigade. One of the big, strong men of the class, and his athletic record is enviable despite the fact that he has been handicapped by injuries every season. His buzzard Second Class year and stripes the next came as no surprise to his friends ; his success as a three-striper has shown that he deserved all he got. He has a clear, level head and a remarkable memory, but his class standing has suffered because of his extensive letter-writing. His claims to being a Red Mike have suffered sadly during ths last two years. mniiatn Tranklin Callaway •DEADWOOD DICK " " DEVIL •DICK " William Franklin Ca.lU ' OJay " vjas born in Clin- ton, Missouri, November 7, 1889. ' before enter- ing the Na. ' oa.l Academy he spent nearly three years at the Clinton High School. I ICK is one of the quiet men of the class, who steadily makes good without much furor. One of the Acey-Deucey sharps of Cruise days, and a member of the notorious Second Deck Iron- clads. He rhinoes on occasions, but merely for the fun of it, which few of us can say. He has a fetching grin of his own design, and makes good but quiet company. He is modest and rather too diffident fcr either a savoir or a fusser, though he has attempted the latter several times during his career. He loves a rough-house, as a good many quiet men do, and when " Bright Eyes " and " Alf " join him there is usually something happening. He roomed with Hyman for the first two years, until that little hazing incident occured. Doesn ' t know what it is not to be worried over his eyes, and has a chronic dread of physical exams. €verett Dole Capebart • ' EVERETT " Lucky Biifi Stiiff.

J I VERETT is particularly noted for his brilliancy in all subjects expounded in the Steam Build- ing. Is never happier than when chewing chalk over a sketch of a relief-valve or a four- cylinder gas engine. Warm hearted and generous, he is a friend most assuredly worth knowing, and one on whom you can rely to help you in your woes to the best of his ability. Has a wonderful amount of aplomb and refuses to be bluffed by anyone or anything. His polished manner, his conversational powers, and his dapper appearance, make him a favorite with the fair sex, and he can usually be found on a Saturday afternoon, ensconsed on a comfortable sofa with a sweet maiden, or gracing one of the weekly " pink-teas " . Spends hours,— and numerous bars of shaving soap, — devising means to stop the growth of his heavy beard. Claims he will grow a " Van Dyke " and a moustache, as soon as he graduates.

Many people remember yet the time when he took off his cits after being sworn in on his re-exam, and won a track-meet for the f ■ Navy. The " Pride of Maryland " is too feather-brained and light-hearted to be a good student, and he would rather argue with Spig any old study-period than bone. He is noted as one of the most conscientious newspaper readers in the Class, and his political information is volummous. He goes to every hop, dances every dance, and knows every girl that comes down. If you are lookmg for trouble, ask him what they said about him in the Minstrel Show. He is good-natured, easy-going but rather nervous, and has prob- ably the most perfect build in the Class.

" Chesty can keep you laughing all the time without trying. He is one who never looked forward to First Class smoking privilege because he has always had it. Even during Plebe year he was the Chief Engineer of a big sea-going pipe which was always running under forced draft. Chesty never takes anything seriously and this may be a fault, but we are sure that when the real serious propositions present them- selves he will be ready for the job. He will not attempt to argue with you ; if your ideas vary from his he ' ll simply throw his chin in the air and say, Aint you got no brains ? " Chesty isn ' t much of a fusser, that is, he will not fuss just any girl, but when one of the little dames from Fort Smith is in town, why his name might just as well be Lucien Byron.

ORKEY kept his roommate on the straight and narrow path for so long that he was crowded off himself, and has since become one of the boys. One of those persistent and consistent savoirs who go along from day to day making the same old 3.9 spiel, even though sometimes it does verge on the edge, as when Porkey put the whole shrinkage table, word for word, on the board. Every year when fencing season rolls around, Porkey is found down m the Armory, banging away at a little black spot and wonder- ing why he can ' t hit it. First Class cruise he got into a httle altercation which wound him up in the same boat with a lot of others, though he had the right on his side. A hard- working, quiet fellow who is not given the credit he deserves and one who every day is finding himself more appreciated by his class-mates. lHarion Case Cheek •COLONEL " " CHECK " " MIKE ' " MARION " Marion Case Cheek mas born in T pley.

He has the reputation of being one of the squarest men in the " class, with himself, with his class-mates and with the under- classmen. A good brace, a good voice, and the faculty of making himself popular without trying are three of his valu- able assets. If you are in trouble and want some level-headed advice, he is a man from whom you can get it. The Colonel is one of the " Possums " and you can find him with T.

ITHOUT a doubt Henry is one of the most thoroughly liked men in the class. Although naturally of a retiring disposition, when placed in a position of responsibility his inherent strong character asserts itself. His four years on the football team were characterized by his steady playing, and he has always been counted one of the " sure " men. He was chosen to lead the team his First Class year, but an unfortunate misunderstanding with the authorities during the Cruise deprived him of this honor. Despite this, he played his hardest during all the season, and no small credit for the 3 to victory over the Army may be attributed to him. Too much praise cannot be bestowed on him for the sportsmanlike spirit he displayed while laboring under difficult- ies most men would have counted insuperable. Henry is a great favorite with the fair sex, every inch a man, and one whom we are proud to claim as a class-mate and friend. Calvin Rayes Cobb ••GRANNY " Class Football (4). Foolball (3. 2, 1(.

Early considered it a duty to help multiply the stag line, until finally he became one of the boldest fussers of them all. Kept a scrap book that bade fair to make him famous as a collector of queer odds and ends of literary fancy.

Like a true Mick, Pat is ready to scrap on the leas provocation, preferably a self-made one. Despite his fiery disposition, his mature appearance lends him a dignity and gravity not to be lightly reckoned with. Always stands v ell, —and that with very little effort, for he is an accomplished master in the art of bluffing. He has confined his athletic energies to baseball, and for three years has been one of the standbys on the class team.

While there, he became a member of the Zeia Chapter of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. JOMMY ' S greatest sorrow is the rapid thinning ' of his golden locks. He was quite fond of Herpicide Second Class year until Queen Lil poured in some peroxide. We yet remember the awful moment when Commy discovered that his hair had taken on all shades of the rainbow. Commy is the most independent man in the class, and he always says exactly what he thinks. He is an effi- cient man, rather savvy, and decidedly non-greasy. He likes fussing, and has a way about him that attracts the femmes, though they all stand somewhat in awe of him. He is so fond of running Plebes in fierce tones that they all hide under the nearest bed at his approach. He goes out for any form of athletics that pops into his head, and is usually found around most class teams. Frank to an extreme, you soon know if Commy likes you. Widely known, his friendship is a pleas- ure to a large circle. J Urev Oloodson Conway Urey Woodson Conivdy iv s born in PhiUdel- phia. " Pa., October 6, 1889.

EGULARLY every month, Urey blossoms out with a bran-new theory about something or other, and a bran-new hair tonic. He early attained fame for the number of pretty girls he brought to the hops for the first time, and in all probability the Farewell Ball will see him as enthusiastic and as successful as ever. He enjoys a big time, but not a rough one, and usually gets his share. By nature, he is a hard student, but he always manages to have the time to help others over the rough places. Some claim that his quietness is due to thought, and that when he talks he usually has something to say. This is more or less true. He intends to stay in the Service, and he has all the qualifications re- quired.

CRAVEN of the Cravens, lifter of the 800- pound shell, inventor and designer — that ' s Frank ! He made a name for himself on two cruises, Youngster year by lifting a shell weigh- ing a third of a ton, and as a Second Classman by working a sick leave graft. Although he has grown a foot since he came in here, this has not interfered with his intellectual development. Without any special boning, he has held his own well toward the top of the class, for he is naturally a savoir. Of an inventive turn of mind, we may expect to hear of him in the future. He is a consistent fusser of discrimination and taste, but of late he seems in this regard to have concentrated. To those who know Frank, he has proved a steadfast friend who will do anything to help a man whom he likes. James mcDowell Cresap ••JIMMY " Yellow Numerals. Expert Bar. Fencing Squad l3. 2. 1).

A terror on plebes, and has them do many novel stunts tor his own amusement. Has a hard time to keep off the conduct erades and is forever squidging. With Pat Buchanan ran a chamber of horrors Second Class year, in which they " shocked " many of our sensibilities and incidentally almor.t assassinated Culis Bartlett. A former native of Crabtown, but says little on this score. A steadfast and true friend at all times. Jimmy has had more than his share of ill-luck here, but has come out of it all a better man.

They say Charles didn ' t do a great deal of sight- seeing in London or anywhere else for that matter. Merchan- dise called him, and he went shopping, shopping, on and on. Why? Well, he enjoyed it.

Ran Pat Collier a close race on the Cruise, but finally won out, even though the Colonel swears it was his sketch of the Tabor Indicator that turned the trick. In spite of all his talk of resigning and going back to Mississippi there is no one who can hand out more dope on the Ensign Bill than Pede. He can start more rumors in five minutes than Hodson, and that ' s going some, and he tells it all with such a straight face and with such assurance that before long he believes it all himself. ii Olalter Sberman Dav)[(l$on - " DAVY " Yellow Numerals (1) Walter Sherman Davidson •was born in Waltersburg.

He is just as human as any of us, and when in the mood thoroughly enjoys a big liberty. The point is that the moods don ' t overlap and Davy knows a well defined limit. Made the football squad Second Class year but decided that training table grub was not worth the work. A great believer in the ideas of Fletcher. Dearly loves to join a bunch and start some agony. Also very fond of extracting odd noises from a violin, though he can play when he wishes. Regards hops in a very business-like way, simply as a means of killing time.

One of the few who read only the best books. With Casey, Peck, and Billy, he for ms a group of inseperables that has lasted for the four years. Aboard ship he does his work thoroughly and ef- ficiently, but not because of a desire to show off.

He can give you the straight dope on anything you want to know from the progress of the Ensign Bill to the latest in Annapolis society. Made a great hit Second Class year with the Masqueraders. An old stand-by in the choir until First Class year when he tendered his resig- nation with the reason that, as Sunday papers were barred, he would also have to leave.

ELAVAN is one of those unusual people that can be met once or twice in a lifetime, to whom Math is simplicity. He works a prob in two or three steps that it would take an ordinary man fifteen minutes to work, and he has so many short cuts that he is absolutely useless to the wooden man. He never bones, and gets most of his enjoyment out of life through his insatiable taste for books and his love for tobacco. He is a heavy fusser, rarely a hop, and his feminine friends are legion. His efficiency drew him his little present from the Cruise, for when he cares to be he is cool, collected, and possesses a good fund of common sense. During the last year he lost a good deal of time as a victim of the typhoid epidemic, but he could afford that. He and Jack Okie have no reason to remember English with any degree of pleasure.

ERHAPS the one best bet about Bob is that he is in earnest ; he ' s in earnest about everything he does,— and he is doing something most all the time. Not that he is " sober-sided, " but Bob takes the serious things of life a little more than the rest of us, and that is one reason why he accomplishes things. He has a well-formulated opinion on every subject and is not averse to telling just what that opinion is. This very self-reliance is what probably kept him off the baseball team one year, for he made up his mind that the proper way to bat— but that ' s a long story. Bob is one of those quiet and unobtrusive fussers who does not flutter exclusively around one flame but is mildly singed by a whole galaxy of candles. However, we venture to predict that he will be one of our first Benedicts; Bob ' s instincts are essen- tially domestic. " What ' s the tempertoor of the armatoor ?

TUDE is a quiet man who likes to be around with a crowd, though he seldom contributes to the excitement except at intervals to throw in some little witticism. Like some quiet men he enjoys fussing, but usually has a good deal of trouble locating his partners at the hops on account of his eyes. These have always given him trouble, the eyes not the partners, and ever since Youngster year, he has dreaded the annual seance with the examining board. If his eyes are bad his hand is not, and he is particularly savvy in anything that has Math in it. He is fond of reading, and may frequently be found buried in a volume of Victor Hugo. He had the rather unique experience of finding a lost affinity in his room-mate, with whom he played when a small kid back in old Kansas.

His energetic conduct of the Bulletin, his clever share in the " Rhymers Club " , will long be remembered.

His first claim to distinction during the old B. P. days, was when he ran for something over a year without receiving any demerits. As a volumi- nous newspaper reader, and infallible dispenser of information, he has never had an equal. His record at the Academy has been one of quiet achievement. In studies he has maintained a creditable stand, and in athletics, though handi- capped by lack of weight, he has gained a seat in the second boat, and finally he has received the highest military honor of the Institution, and has demonstrated that it was well-deserved. In spite of a conflict between his high sense of duty, and certain customs of the Academy, he has throughout retained his dignity and his popularity, and earned the reputation of being the best Five-Striper we have known.

His pleasant manners and his willingness to work made him a favorite with the officers on the Cruise, and when the precedence list came out he was among the Three-Stripers.

At recitation, he writes a spiel that few but himself can read, and still fewer can translate. Reading it, he generally gives up after the first few lines and finishes orally, though the instructor never knows it. As a fusser he is very successful, favoring Annapolis girls rather than those from out of town. He is distinctly peaceable in his habits, likes a good pipe, and is not fond of noise and rough-house.

EW of US appreciate Clew. We know him only as a ruddy-cheeked, good-natured Southerner with an unpronounceable name — Guyahrnit — or thereabouts, who is very quiet and easy- going, but is always on the job when occasion demands. He is a regular bow-liner at Seaman- ship, and a stickler for naval etiquette. Would stop the engine and toss the oars (in a steamer), just to salute a passing doctor. He ought to be famous lor his formula for tacking in a Service cutter,— " Stand by to tack ! Tack ! Let fly the jib ! Reverse the helm ! " , which commanded the open admiration of even that sea-dog " Reef Cringle. " He appeared in an un- expected role as a hazer early First Class year, and on losing his buzzard startled the Senior Assistant by a request for four buttons. Rhinoing is Clew ' s recreation.

We showed him the place he has in the heart of the Class by electing him to the Hop Committee the first chance we had. A man of sterling principles, we can add genuine respect to our love for him. If ever one feels blue or rhino, a trip to Jack ' s room and a little talk with him will do wonders, for his eternal cheerfulness is positively contag- ious. Needless to say, Jack is an ardent fusser, though he has sufficient reserve to concentrate his efforts whenever " honestly, just the dearest little girl in all the world " is any- where around.

HEN Gilmore entered upon his Academy course, his mild manners and placid smile won him the name of Gracie, but when he first appeared on the lacrosse field, it was apparent that this was a misnomer, and that he did not have those choleric blue eyes for nothing. But the name stuck as names are apt to do. He is, however, even better as a student than as an athlete; not brilliant perhaps, but a natural student. As the mentor and affinity of Charley, he tided him over several rocky places, and has lightened the burdens of many others. To observe his thinning locks, one would imagine that he was well along in years, but when he is known better he is found to be endowed with extreme youthfulness of spirit. This, however, does not detract from the judgment and determination with which he is generously endowed. l n -, » " Did you people bring out those balls j " ' f ' . j S n narhson Randolph 6lcnnon ' 1S ' HcLrrison Randolph Glennon Hua.s born in San Francisco.

For two years he kept Salvation Nell on the right- eous path, and as soon as he landed him there, left him to seek new worlds to conquer. He is an unassuming chap who doesn ' t push himself forward into the lime-Iight as so many of us are prone to do, but like the prompter is content to stay back in the wings taking things as they come, putting in a word here and there when it is needed.

He is a non-fusser. During the trip to London on First Class Cruise, he astonished a sedate " Cabby " one night, by direct- ing him to " Pillidickey Square, " but as a rule he talks quite naturally.

As a Second Classman, he drew our only seventh P. O., but dittoed again First Class year. He is frank and absolutely positive on all subjects, though he is always willing to learn just a little more. He gives the impression of having swallowed Brassey ' s Annual, and Jane ' s Fighting Ships piecemeal, because of his very definite opinions on every- thing connected with this or any other Navy. He is a close, though probably unconscious, imitator of that august person- age, " the Aristocrat " , and uses this presence with great effect on such as disagree with his assertions, or otherwise incur his displeasure.

He is rather reticent and has passed a more or less unevent- ful career in the last four years with us. During the first two years, he had a great deal of trouble with his eyes, and this trouble kept him from a higher standing that he would undoubtedly have drawn had he been able to bone more. He is a great reader, and divides his attentions about eqally between popular fiction and classics. Enjoys a rough-house, and when drawn out of his shell is rather hysterical in expressing his mirth and joy. He is a consistent fusser, and spends much of his spare time in putting his thoughts on paper. The few who know him well pro- nounce him a pleasant companion and a good friend.

He is an authority on all that is dainty, and his locker is full of orangewood sticks and " Lucien ' s Lotions.

I OB impressed us so favorably Plebe year and Youngster Cruise that we elected him our Class Secretary and we have never regretted it. He has a keen brain, good reasoning power, and as acting Class President he showed he had plenty of initiative and agressiveness when the occasion required it. Measles and mumps have twice kept him from starring, and incidently interfered with his athletics. Likes to talk about that good old second crew that he stroked most successfully. Would like to be a Red Mike but some- how he is swept off his feet occasionally by some queen. On the Cruise he didn ' t get as many stripes as he could have secured by working harder for them. He will be one of the leading men of the Class in the Service, not only because of his high standing, but also on account of his affability and integrity. 4 " James Gillespie Blaine grower ' JIMMY JAMES " James Gillespie BUine Gromer ■was born in Atkinson.

" Had the hardest kind of a time with Mechanics, but with a 2.2 for two months staring him in the face, Jimmy showed his mettle and perseverance, coming out sat when the time came. When the rest of us were rhinoing on the Cruise, Jimmy had the audacity to state that he was enjoying himself, and that after Second Class year, he felt as though he were on a vacation.

X was Second Class year, when the Mechanics Department had a strangle-hold on us, that we awoke to Ole ' s worth. It proved that he is. one of the few real savoirs in the Class, and that he is a man unselfish enough to give up starring for the sake of his wooden friends. Savvy in a theoretical way, he is also a practical, efficient man, who rated a much higher job than that he pulled out of the Cruise grab-bag. Despite all efforts of his friends, he still converses with an accent not unlike that of the great Yen himself. Except for a little fencing as a recreation, Ole never took the trouble to go out for Athletics. Fusses once in a while, although his sixth sense tells him not to. Good-natured to an extreme, he often allows himself to be imposed upon. An essentially reliable man. M J I arvev Sbadk liaisllp Harvey Haislip ' ip s bom in Fredericksburg.

Did anyone ever come into your room with, " Got any dope on the exam? " Ten to one that it was Harve. In going to recitation with the band playing, his peculiar reaching stride furnishes much amusement to his section.

He has two foibles: he firmly believes that Los Angeles is the new " Hub of the Universe, " and that the weak squad is a pernicious encroachment upon the rights and liberties of the First Class. Is a fusser of high degree, but his changes of heart are so numerous that only a composite picture could approach the portrait of his ideal.

One could hardly call him a fusser, yet no more is he a Red Mike. His heart is never lost for long, however, because he looks on the serious side of things rather than the frivolous.

His light weight has been a distinct disadvantage as far as football is concerned, though he was one of the best ends on the Class teams during the three years he played.

However, he was soon in evidence in a dark comer of the Choir, and as a talented composer and general indispensible at Masquerader doings. He has succeeded in almost everything he has attempted, being the composer of much of the original music in the Mas- querader shows, and the author of the Class song. His Class standing has suffered by his irresponsibility, but he never has to worry about his marks. The doctors have kept him guess- ing for four years on his eyes. fieorge Triscb Jacobs " JAKE " Orange N Captain Basket Ball Team (1) Brown N Expert Bar White INunieruls Orange Numerals Da.n ' ville, Pennsyl ' hania, claims George Frisch ' Jacobs as one of its sons. He graduated from the ' Danville High School ' with honors, and spent one year at the Susquehanna Uni ' hersity. It mias •while at the latter institution of learning that he concei ' ved the idea of embracing a naiial career. QUIET, reticent, reserved little " Dutchman, " and as loyal and true a friend as one could find. He has a cool, collected head, as is evidenced by his able leadership of the basketball team. Jake, besides being captain of the team, plays a remarkably fast and brilliant game. His very aggressiveness puts a fight into the other members of the team that has won many a hard-earned victory. He studies on rare occasions, and withal stands well up toward the head of the Class, and seldom, if ever, takes the exams. He has been known to fuss, especially of late, but is rather more inclined to be a Red Mike than a fusser. There is not a man in the Class who is more respected or liked, and it ' s safe to say his career in the Navy will be a successful and able one.

He attended the HiUsboro {Ohio) High School, and graduated before receiv- ing his appointment to the cAcademy from Senator Foraker from Ohio. PRETTY, pink-cheeked lad with coal-black hair, and the most innocent expression imagina- ble, who is, however, in the eyes of the powers that be, the one original hard guy, the worthy successor of Si Gilbert. But in fact Howard is just the reverse. Had hard luck First Class Cruise, and ran into Bertie at the wrong time, or rather Bertie ran into him. He is a hard-plodding lad who generally gets what he starts out after. Bones hard but none could ever call him a greaser. When he isn ' t working at something else, he is around electioneering for some candidates he has for Class honors. He has a good opinion of the men he selects, and is often disgusted when his candidate is defeated. How- ever, bad politicians are generally good fellows, and Howard is very generally liked.

He ' was aopointed from Missouri. fn Y IS a man naturally possessed of a good build to which he has added materially by consistent work on the crew, where he has pulled a Varsity oar for three years. He is remarkable for other things as well, notably his fussing and his " notions. " The latter consist of ideas on certain people. Naval Academy methods, and conventions in general — all well and forcibly expressed. As to fussing, he doesn ' t do it. He merely knows a few girls, — but that ' s not fussing ! Is deeply interested in machinery, particularly auto- mobiles, and he has lost a lot of sleep pondering over his " Pressure Turbine. " He has a character of remarkable strength, and his Missouri mule convictions of what is right and what is wrong make him one of the marked men of the Class. All know him, and all like him for the genuine, open- hearted man that he is. v Reward Sanford Keep •• SOCK " " SOCKLESS " Tennis Team (Captain (1) Hcnudrd Sanford Keep luas born in Lcnvell, SMassachusetts. on cApril 2, 1888. He attended the Lcnvell High School but did not graduate. He ivas appointed to the cAcademy by the Honorable " Sutler cAmes from Massachusetts. OCK ! Bankrupt from buying service stripes, and the holder of an enviable record of being the only man in our Class who entered when they still used bows and arrows on battleships. However, even with years and years of the grilling influence of the Naval Service, he re- mains good and kind of heart. Lady Nicotine has been his downfall, but that is all past and gone now. He has quite recently developed a positive monomania on the subject of aerial navigation, and at present hopes to outdo Glenn Curtiss with his " Sockless Stability Control. " He can certainly tell you more about an aeroplane than a Bailey Air Pump. He is a good tennis player, and is always out for Class baseball. He is a sociable kind of chap, always willing to please, and when he is doing the grand, nothing ever feazes him. . " Yes I Mr. Taft is coming over to see me next Saturday.

H EG old Snick! Quite the savviest man in the place on things military. Snick ' s habit of plain speaking kept him in ranks for four years. He has been the pride of his section throughout the course, and his beautiful sketches in Steam dur- ing Second Class year are still spoken of with awe by those who were privileged to see them. Snick can stand more running than any man in the place. Has a most stubborn will and is a regular volcano of a rhino at times. Even came near resigning Second Class year when he was unjustly put on the Awkward Squad. Has a habit of taking long and mysterious cross-countries, some say even to the Dutchman ' s. He is a sober, clear-minded chap, who tends strictly to business, but if you want to rile him, just ask how it was that Mr. Gelm led him astray at the garden-party in Marseilles. 3ay Um K rky aj) L.

He gradu- ated at the Patton High School, in his nati ' ve fo n. and a)as appointed from the 9th " District SNiorth Carolina, by the Hon. E. Y. Webb. AY is an optimistic youth who is one of our first Class recollections. Although turned ■ ' - back from 1 9 10 on entry, he utilized his first year ' s training by putting us through our first course of sprouts, but he did it so good-naturedly that we remember it only to laugh. He has been one of the old Twelfth Company rounders for four years, and has formed a strong combination around the table with Jo- Jo, Shorty, and the Cow. In studies, he never created much of a furor until First Class year, when he developed into a pronounced savoir. Four years of consistent Gym work have kept him in excellent physical trim, and from all fear of Doc ' s dreaded squad. The examining board, however, during the last two years have caused him lots of trouble and worry on account of his eyes. He is active, a large fusser and a friend of everybody.

He was apnointed from California. m ANY honors have fallen to Starr in the course of the last four years, and he has accepted them all without changing in the least from the fine, open-hearted man of Plebe year. As President of the Class, he has shown the discretion and executive ability without which men must fail. In athletics, he has been a leader always, and his fine build and level head have endeared him to the Brigade for his work in football and in crew. Quiet, and in some ways re- served, he possesses a fund of humor which has stood him in good stead. He enjoys a good cigar during the little time of the year when he is not in training, and thoroughly enjoys music. Likes to fuss, but his attentions have never been very much scattered. He possesses the faculty of concentration to such an extent that in spite of his work in athletics, he has always kept near the head of the Class in studies.

He has never been on record as a savoir, but he has a great big bump of good common sense which will insure his success as an officer. One of the favorite subjects of con- versation among the R. C.

Broad and generous in both body and mind, he finds it an awful bore to study and prefers rather to surround himself in the haze of a cigarette and dream of graduation as ensigns. On Class teams he is far from lazy, and has proven himself an athlete of no mean ability. A crack shot of the rifle-team, he more than held his own against a big bunch in the national meet at Camp Perry, States that he sure had a good time on this trip of the team to Ohio. Frequently adorns trees and conduct grades, but never allows this to disturb him, and has never been accused of woodenness. He is a man who likes the good things of life, and shares with his friends their rejoicings and sorrows in a manner that has endeared him to the Class. " Sa-a-ay, Bu-shl Got the makes?

He accuses ' f others of being fussers with the cool assurance of one who never looks a girl in the face, and loses much grace thereby. He occasionally rhinos, but is naturally too buoyant and good-natured for the fits to hang over him long. He won fame Youngster year by carrying off the welter-weight boxing championship, so don ' t be deceived by his pink cheeks, and his soft, brown eyes. As business manager of Reef Points during his First Class year he showed what he could do in a serious way, and carried the little book through in great style.

He is not quiet, for he rooms with Melvin, but is rather inclined to think before he says any- thing, consequently what few comments he does make are close to the point. Ask him for in- formation and he is sure to try to run you, though this is always made apparent by a slow grin and a peculiar expression about his eyes. Before answering he ap- pears to weight his words carefully, shaking his head as though pondering deeply. He has investigated " Spring Valley " with Melvin and Godwin on several occasions, though none of them are enthusiastic about it now, if they were then. He has smoked consistently ever since he entered, with unusual luck, and also has been somewhat of a card enthusiast. When in section and at drills he keeps quiet and tends to business, and expects others to do the same.

One of the few pluggers of the Class, Dutch has managed to slip one over on the Academic board a couple of times each year. When not unsat he is one of the most easy-going men in the Class. Nothing he likes better than an argument or a rough-house, but it must be said in justice to his strength that he is much better at the latter.

He is a bonoid, and has worked hard for everything that he has received. Although usually on the ragged edge, he always keeps within hailing distance of a 2.5.

During Youngster year, he practiced the Ichagoo and Wachidoodle languages with Risley much to the disgust of others of the forty per cent. He fusses sometimes, usually on request, and is one of the few that you can depend on to help you out in a pinch without your lying about the maid ' s appearance. He bought a canoe Youngster year with the idea of becoming a real fusser, but when that famous order against co-canoeing went forth, he used it for ragging fumes instead. He affects large pipes, vile tobacco, and a gloomy, superior m anner, but stir him up and you ' ll find that while good-natured, he is danger- ous as a bear. Don ' t rile him.

This is Cit ' s athletic record, and certainly a most enviable one. On the Cruises he was known as an efficient worker, and a congenial messmate. He has a clear head and a sound, mature judgment, that makes him a power not to be ignored in Class matters.

Never a star, but has always managed to sail along pretty well up on the rolls and that with- out losing one bit of any fun that ' s going on. Was called " Sunshine " Plebe year and might well have kept the name, for his perpetual smile is truly marvellous. Once only did he lose it and that was when at a hop Youngster year a voice from t he stag line advised him to get out an oar.

He has shown us what a man can do in this place by unostenta- tious hard work and a willing way. He is conscientious in all he does, and usually does everything well. Though not very savvy, his standing bears witness to his work , and his stripes to his efficiency. He has fussed consistently from our first June Ball, and " consist- ency " has been his motto. On First Class Cruise, he was largely responsible for the fact that our trip to London was not eventually cancelled, and every one feels grateful to him on that account. He is a great reader and does not spend much of his time on athletics. He commands our admiration that, in this place of unfortunate precedents, he has not been ashamed to do his best.

He is not much of a fusser, but is seen down at the hops every once in a while. It is said that he made his debut dragging only after special request.

Usually on the right side of a 3.0, ex- cept when he strikes a snag like that of Wool- , sey ' s Theoretical during Second Class year. At that time he thought seriously of Matrimony and Youngs- town. It is gently hinted that he might be a wiser man, were he to place less reliance in the Y. Vindicator, his sole source of misinformation. Bright Eyes is quite a fusser, and usually makes a hit. If he doesn ' t, it ' s only because the girls do not take him seriously on account of his apparent youthfulness. When he writes his left hand travels like a Chesapeake Crab in a heavy sea,— which has been the inspiration for another nickname. His best friends are those who know him best. Daniel Scdtitilkr lUcQuarrie ' Dante! Segmiller McQtiarrie from Beaver City, Utah, ' ipas born in St. George. Utah, September 19. 1888. Early in life he came to SNstv York City, luhere he spent three years at DeWitt Clin- ton High School, He Hvas appointed from Utah by Senator Sutherland, HE Deacon spent his earlier days in Utah but later removed to New York where he attained his present polish. One of the most impractical men in the Class, he is nevertheless very savvy theoretically. Is an authority on any subject from fussing to aeroplanes. By his happy and cheerful disposition, he has made himself popular with all, and we have grown so used to his light-heartedness that it is difficult to take him seriously, even when he wants us to. Although he captained the Ninth Company baseball team, he is not what one would call an athlete. His favorite game is chess and he just loves those intricate games which require deep thinking. Stands well enough to get out of most of the semi-arms and anns. Was a Red Mike until the end of Second Class year when he was sadly smitten and has since been one of our heaviest fussers. nmn Roscoe macK •ROUGE " -AGLilNALDO ' Albert R.

He has Imed most of his life in Illinois, graduated from Hillsboro High School and ivas appointed to the Naval Academy from the list District, Illinois, by the Hon. Zcno Rt ' bes. OUGE has had troubles of his own with those translucent orbs which the Examining Board do not seem to think very good, so maybe he will not be able to continue with us in the great " Navee.

" Aguinaldo, " as someone has named hum, has auburn hair which is the envy of " Meestair Okie. Refusing to show himself at the hops, Rouge has nevertheless enabled many another person to go by taking his duty for him. He is one of those sphinx-like people with whom it takes some time to get acquainted, but quietness in a person is more or less of a welcome attribute since four years here usuaUy makes a man crazily garrulous. He is a good companion and a sensible chap. |£ T Alexander macomb ••ALEC " ••LIZZIE " Masqueraders (I) cAlexander Macomb -Tuas born in Fort ' J eno, Oklahoma., on February 5, 1883.

He attended the Western High School in Washington for a year, the University of Arizona for a feiu months and tvas appointed by Representati-ve Denby from the tst District. Michigan. ATHER an odd sort of chap is Alec, one whom most of us have never quite understood. Not much of a mixer, he has preferred to let us come to him. Those of us who know him intimately have realized that he is a man whose acquaint- ance is well worth cultivating. Has lots of tem- psrament to which he has just claim. A great lover of the beautiful, in women, in poetry, in art, and in music. Inci- dentally, he plays the piano very well. Has broad ideas of life, customs, and people, based on wide travel and intelligent reading. Made quite a name for himself throi h his ability as an actress in the Masqueraders First Class year. His knowledge of Dago and his willingness to help others in it always made his room exceedingly popular just before a Dago recitation. Though rather effeminate in his manners, he is a man of high ideals, and good determination. " People of that sort don ' t know anything.

" He is a great fusser, and no hop is complete without his presence. For two years he was a crew man, then had to give it up, and was elected manager of the best crew the Navy ever put into the waters of the Severn. Though people had never thought of it before, it seemed perfectly natural for Maggie to draw one of the prize plums from the Cruise pudding, and though too non-reg and good-natured to make a " split " three-striper, he was efficient and popular with his company.

Is never quite so happy as when, on a Cruise, he can find a quiet corner in which he can sit and smoke his pipe. From his jolly, free-and-easy manner, one gets the impression that Tommy is just a care-free drifter. Those who know the real Tommy realize the mistake. Bilged once, and then settled down with the grim determination to show that he can win if he sets his heart upon it. Heart-whole and fancy-free, he enjoys a hop as much as the most hardened heartbreaker. Has ideas worth while on a variety of subjects. Like the true sailor he is. Tommy can properly express himself when the occasion demands it, but never uses other than good, sea-going terms. A man one is proud to call a Classmate. 14% Paul Carlisle mayfieia Paul Carlisle Mayfield wds born in Summer Shade, Kentucky, on October 18, 1888. He gradu- ated from D ' wigM High School of Summer Shade before entering the cAcademy. He was appointed from Kentucky. AUL and Jub2 BaU were such quiet members of the Eighth that one hardly knew them until Tube dragged them both into prominence by bilging with a thud. There was a second time, later on, when Paul again occupied the public stage, and that was when he snatched Molly Sessions from the arms of the faithful Ben. Aside from these two occasions, Paul has remained steadily in the background, an extremely quiet, retired man. He rarely smokes. He has never been seen at a hop, nor has he ever openly shown any incUnation to fuss, although it is suspected that his heart is stowed away some place out in old Kentucky. Not savvy, though he never gets unsat, largely because he has the taculty for consistent boning. Of domestic habits, he has managed to go through the Academy without making himself notorious for anything in particular. Not a mixer, he is known to only a few, but these few like him immensely. 4 John Torsytb IHeigs, 3r, ••JOHNNY " Red Nunieriils Reel N 2iid ' John Forsyth Meigs wa.s born in Washington, D.

OHNNY first attracted us by his good common sense. After a while, when we knew him better, we found him a fine Classmate and the best kind of a friend. In spite of his lack of weight, he came within an ace of making the Varsity Crew last year through sheer pluck and persistence. Talks with a slow drawl, but when aroused to action can slam things around a few. Lived with his cousin, Fritz Rodgers, until Freddy bilged, and then roomed for a while with his other cousin, the French Alexander May-comb. Cares for maidens fair in a general sort of way, and often graces the ball room floor. Johnny is thoroughly generous with all his belongings. Is not savvy, but what he knows at all he knows well. Quiet, unassuming, but with an immense amount of perseverance and independence, he is a man who is sure to succeed in whatever he undertakes.

It s a wonder tha Sis did not cause the loss of his wife ' s stripes, in his absent-mmded way, for he has had plenty of chances to get his worthy room- mate into trouble. Laughs with the silvery tones of a Hia- watha.

I LL Selma, now that Jack is about to graduate, is swelling with pride in her famous representative — famous as much for his wit as for his avoirdu- pois. A noise like the outside of a circus side- show, along with a clog-dance rendition of " All policemen have big feet " is a sure pre- liminary of Jack ' s approach. He enters — with the deep bow of the real Arturo — and with a few preliminary fraps, makes himself entirely at home. The survivor of a three-round contest with Sesh Boy in the steam room of the Gym. As a proof of his astonishing versatility, he sings in the Choir, holds down two chairs on one end of the Masqueraders Minstrel Show, and gains one number on Pierpont Mohle each year.

INGE combines the manners of a count with a never-failing effervescence of spirits; the result is a debonair courtliness that seems to be irre- sistible to the fair sex. He is possessed of an extraordinary flow of language, and has been one of the mainstays of the Bulletin for three years. He has also been a pillar of the Masqueraders, and has achieved a well-earned fame for his work behind the foot- lights. Vince had a reputation for being reserved until soon after Second Class leave, when he developed a very " Mid- summer madness, " and sprang into immediate fame as a con- tortionist, and the originator of more of those funny noises than Sambo ever dreamed of. About the same time he con- cluded the Navy was no place for him, and used to decide on a new career every day.

He claims Washington College, Tennessee, as his present home address. reciprocation. jTANLEY is known to his company principally as the " Russian Lion, or the Pride of the Gyrn- nasium, " and is really quite an artist when it comes to anything in the wrestling line. Fusses consistently, and sometimes manages to pick out a dream. He admires the girls and believes in Has made good use of the sail-boats we have, but has been known to say, " Save the women and children; I can swim. " He has a good, light build, and does not drink or smoke. During First Class year he was sent out to Las Animas, but may be able to get back before the end of the year. Delights in telling how he hunted lions and things in the mountains of Western North Carolina, but that may be partly accounted for by the fact that he was a reporter for the Ashe- ville local before he joined us. He is savvy, conscientious, and has done much for his less gifted brothers in the old Twelfth Company.

With the same point of view, he is one of the first ten physically, weighing but a scant hun- dred and twenty on six feet of height. A sparse crop of light hair, and a deep hollow voice with a peculiar rattle complete this remarkable man. For three years he formed with Melvin the Long and the Short of the Eleventh Company, a pair notable as well for the beauty of their figures as for their grace of carriage. Mohle is rather quiet, not mingling much with the fellows, as he needs the time to bone, but he has the kind- est heart in the Class, and would give anything he owns to be able to help a classmate. i Robert Potter molten " BOB " " BOBBIE " Farewell Ball Committee Robert Potter Molten ivas born in PhiUdelphta, Pa., on cNs ' eniber 12, 1886.

Can talk on any subject, and his fluency of speech and convincing manner cause many people to believe some of his highly enter- taining stories. First and last a fusser, a pink tea is never fashionably replete without the presence of Robert Potter. Is somewhat of an artist, as past Lucky Bags will testify, and likes nothing better than to dabble in pen and ink. Became an honorary member of the Severn Hunt Club Second Class year and spent several afternoons galloping after that tame fox owned by the club.

However, that was years ago — on Youngster cruise,- — and since then Soc has become as expert a seaman as he is a machinist. Machinery is his hobby and is a joy to his heart.

On all cruises he has been known as the best kind of a man to make a liberty with, particularly at New London. On land he has no equal. He is one of the finest amateur boxers in the country, never failing to down his opponent. He went out hard First Class year after a yellow N, and lost out only because of lack of previous training.

QUIET little Southern gentleman, polite as the proverbial Frenchman and haughty as the arro- gant Castilian. To those who do not know him intimately — and there are many who do not— he seems to carry about him an impene- trable air of dignity and reserve. The biggest thing Scrubby has done since he has been with us has been to live with Red Erwin three years without bilging. Newton ' s favorite pastime is to sit with an unlighted cigar between his jaws and either pick at his old mandolin or write loving bon- bons on pink note paper. Studies come second with him— 2,5 is his aim; he generally gets what he wants and seldom oversteps.

Suffice it to say that he ' s here, going to stay, and that we are glad of it. He is a clever hand with a kodak, and his interest and artistic taste have done much toward the completion of this book. He plays baseball and basketball, but shines at the former. If he had not been so unfortunate as to have a star man ahead of him to cover the first bag during our four years, he would easily have held it down for us. He has the rather unusual good fortune of being very clear in sketching, and that with other desirable qualities have kept him from all worry from his studies.

He has more impressive original phrases than anyone in the Class, and when he is in the mood keeps the crowd in excellent humor. Fusses but little, and so deprives the ladies who grace our dancing floor of the pleasure of knowing one of our most interesting exhibits.

Sherwood can tell you, more or less correctly, the tonnage, armament, and speed of every warship in the Seven Seas, and the characteristics of every yacht on the Atlantic sea-board. He is the inventor of an original war-game, by means of which he proved bsyond a doubt that Cervera should have beaten Sampson " to a frazzle. " Unfortunately for the War College, the narrow-minded ridi- cule of the Fifth Company caused this masterpiece to be laid away in a premature grave. His single-handed rescue of the stranded Argo and his material assistance that time on Young- ster Cruise, when the Olympia ' s steamer fell from the davits, will long be famous. He is possessed of real capability, when he troubles himself to exert it.

Probably it was his Bowery slang that did it, but when he smiles the illusion is completely dispelled, for he has the jolliest and most infectious, most expansive smile in the He does not always smile, however. He is, to put temperamental, and is often wrapped in a dark, mysterious pall of gloom for days. He lost about a halt a year once from sickness, and the Academic Board wanted to turn him back ; Bill thought differently. It was an uphill fight, but he won out, and so saved to the Class a man we could ill- afford to lose. His crowning achievement was when he escorted the mascot goat to Philadelphia.

ERE we have one of the terrors of Delaware, a chap who used to kill at least one nigger before breakfast every day, just as an appztizer. Since entering the Academy he has been very quiet, and except for an occasional " By heckl " he would have been thought very timid. Golly has always been very independent ; in fact, too much so for his own good. Has never taken up athletics seriously. Would rather watch a rifle match or read a book on fishing than go to a football game. Always fussed when possible and always dragged a queen. Fond of a good " seegar " or a pipe. His btiZzard S:cond Class year came as a reward for good conduct, and, consequently, his clean sleeve First Class year was some- thing of a surprise to the Class.

Whether addressing his favorite chaperone or requesting some plebe not to chew gum in ranks, he is always the same little Chesterfield, who would not offend for the world. As Conrad begins to get older, and his hair begins to get grayer, he says he doesn ' t care for the " little foolish ones " any more, and we take this to mean that he is beginning to have serious ideas on the girl question. He has changed his mind completely on the relative merits of Georgia and Maryland beauties during the past five years. Has roomed with Bob during most of his course. During Second Class year they used to have some heated disputes as to which had the longer legs.

Froggy has had enough trouble with his run- ning lights to discourage an ordinary man, but he showed his mettle by determining not to be bilged. Would rather read a medical treatise than go to a hop; however, Jimmie usually gets him to fuss a few queens when necessary.

One of those who has raised the standard of the Navy track team during the last four years. He came to us from Andover with a reputation and has upheld it.

UCKY once thought of taking up medicine, but like so many of us with youthful dreams of a cit career, he decided that it was too much work to make a living out in the cold world. His strength of character, truly democratic nature, and spontaneous wit early won him a high place in the regard of the Class and made his election to the Hop Committee Youngster year merely a matter of form. Though most decidedly not a fusser, he religiously attended all hops, and First Class year was elected Chairman of the Committee, a position he has most ably fiUed. Never having had to pursue the elusive 2.5, Ducky has always been able to enjoy every bit of fun that ' s going. He can size up a football or baseball situ- ation to perfection and enjoys nothing better than sitting around with the bunch and talking over the plays.

Will argue on any subject, from " belligerent units " to the best form of a " sniffle valve. " Monk has a keen sense of humor, and though when on duty he rests serenely within the reserves of dignity, at other times he is out for any kind of a frolic.

He -was appointed from Tennessee by Senator Carmack. NOWN intimately by few men in the Class, Solon spends much of his time reading; in fact, he would rather indulge in a quiet literary ses- sion than go to a hop. The only time he dis- plays any energy is when playing lacrosse. Per- sistent work on the squad and steady attend- ance at practice resulted in his getting into several games Second Class year. Gets along with the minimum amount of boning, and has a faculty of seldom failing to obtain the coveted 3.0. Fond of taking lay-offs in Sick Quarters and generally manages to hit the list Sunday morning. A diffi- cult man to convince in an argument, being very decidedly a man of his own ideas. Showed the worth of these same ideas by inventing a gas engine First Class crmse, for the patent rights of which he received a tempting offer.

LLAN was popular in 1910 before his sick leave Youngster year made him a member of our Class, popular for his quiet gentlemanliness and considerate treatment of us plebes. He is an adept at the fussing game, and can convince any girl, except the most hardened yard engine, that he is in love with her in less than five minutes after an introduction. Has quiet tastes, loves nothing better that Kip- ling and a good skag, and never has injured himself bonmg. His quietness has kept him from becoming widely known, but all those who have had the good fortune to come closely in touch with him have found in him a true man and a good friend. Not very savvy, he settles down and bones at the proper time, and is never in grave danger of coming out on the wrong side of a 2.5. He is little, liked, and lucky.

Obtained immortal fame by helping to beat the Army in fencing in New York, when he became one of the three intercollegiate champions. He was second choice for individual champion. You never see Scotty with- out his sea-going pipe. Started at one time to fuss, but for reasons unlmown, he cut it out.

Skinny is not as well-known to the Class as he should be, for there are immense possibilities for a good, old-fashioned rough-house concealed under his calm exterior. However, the old Fifth, with whom he has sported for four years, recognizes Skinny for the man he is — a conscientious, hard-working, fun-loving Classmate. Plebe year he bilged Marmion, then tried to bilge Pinky Butler, and wound up by nearly bilging himself. Sscond Class year, he became suddenly and alarmingly savvy, but he still thinks that he will bilge before graduation. His athletic tendencies include Thursday cross-countries and roller-skating on the Second Deck. Persistently refuses to learn to smoke or to dance, believing that life is worth living without these indispensables. Living with Peck for two years without going insane or bilging, is the feature of his record of which he is proudest. Robert Bentbam Simons, 3r.

ILL has always complained that his handsome head of hair has been one of the greatest draw- backs of his naval career, for as sure as any- body is ragged in a crowd, that one is sure to be Bill. He is a characteristic Southerner, talks t ■ A with an attractive drawl, possesses abundant perseverance, and has a violent temper. He and Monk de- cided that they were tired of each other after a fast bout in which water pitchers figured conspicuously, and each hunted for a more even-tempered affinity. BiU is not savvy, but his energy and concentration have stood by him well for the last four years. He is quiet, usually, only fusses when he thinks his heart is touched, and has had a happy life with the erratic, but mild-tempered Doc.

AROLD is a small, peaceable, hard-working man, who shines when it comes to mandolin technique. Is quiet, as a rule, and fusses con- sistently. He is happiest with a cigarette and a mandolin, and whiles away many valuable hours at this recreation. He has never gone out for athletics more than an occasional game of tennis, but has made frequent trips to the Gym during three years, partly through liking and partly through dire necessity. Harold has always managed to have the best of times on the Cruises, and had a peculiarly hair-raising experience one liberty in New ' London. Though small, he is Uvely, and is usually around when anything is happening. Technical subjects have always been his bug-bear, and if it had not been for the strong combination of Snow Co. in Steam, he might now be treading the happy path of the cit.

However, after extended sick leave he returned, and since then has had to content himself with the very minimum of studymg, with a consequent drop in standing.

To his accurate knowledge of athletics and to his ability with the pen are due most of the clever Bulletin write-ups of the games. A prac- tical athlete, too, as his numerals will show. While Molly is by no means a rounder, he does like to go out with the boys. Right there is where he shows his splendid character, being blessed with the happy faculty of mixing without having to actually participate. Molly never talks much, but we have reason to believe that he has a warm spot in his heart for Findlay for reasons other than that his folks live there. Nev- ertheless, he seldom misses a hop at the Academy. He dearly loves a good cigar, be it a Joe Gish special or a real smoke. €111$ Spencer Stone " ELLIS " " STONEY " Assistitnt Editor-in-Chief, Lucky Ba Class Rin Committee Class Christmas Card Committee, and Chairman (1) Midshipman Commissary (2, I) Expert Bar Business Manager, Masqueraders (1) Star (4) £7 (5 Spencer Stone ivas born in Camden, Arkansa.s.

He is a savoir of the first water, something of an inven- tor, and bones consistently. He wants to learn all there is to be known about a subject — and he does. His efficiency gained recognition Second Class year, when he pulled down a buzzard — which he held during the year in a way that gave promise of Three Stripes, at least, during First Class year. Unfortunately, fate was against him on the Cruise, and he did not net as much as we expected. He thinks there is no place like the West Coast after spending the greater part of First Class Leave in Los Angeles — with Ted. A man who will make good. " Oh, you fussers, be damned.

Plays base- ball, but might play better if he wouldn ' t wear those pink ankle braces. He talks with a drawl, which lengthens con- siderably when he thinks about it. His excellent brace and his ability to make some kind of an answer to every question asked him have carried him quite a ways in the section room, and a good voice and a reg disposition have made him a capable and efficient battalion commander.

He Tvas appointed to the Academy by President Roosevelt from the District of Col- umbia . OHNNY has made a name for himself in the Class as one of our most consistent fussers. No hop is complete without his presence, and he sees that no hop is incomplete. He is popular with men, as well as with women, which is an unusual thing, and has drawn a coterie of kin- dred spirits around him during the course, who are pleased to call themselves the " possums. " He rhinos on occasion, and pines for the joys of cit life. These moods are transient, how- ever, and he is usually sunny and happy. Was a good deal of a kid when he entered, but four years have given him a good deal of strength of character. He has stood by the Choir through all the calumny heaped upon it, and usually decorates the front row of the chorus in all the Masquerader produc- tions. He has a good physique, but has been too lazy to ever make use of it. " Gee! I wish I were up in Washington to-night.

He is a happy-go-lucky fellow who does not bone very hard, — and so does not stand very high, — who demands a crowd for his thorough enjoyment, and who has formed a strong combination with his savvy room-mate. Fussing is the real joy of his life, and his tastes in this line meet the approval of most of his Classmates. He is a regular at the hops and has as good a time while stagging as he does v hile dragging. Not particularly strong on athletics, and could hardly be called a consistent reader. He writes many letters, and receives many, and usually has some brand new discovery that he is sure will take well on our ballroom floor. His instincts are good, and do credit to his heart and head.

S good a man and as straightforward a little gen- tleman as it is po ssible to find. He hails from the wildest part of the Wild West, but does not show it, for he is as much at home giving the girls a treat as he is astride of a cayuse. Girls? M He has them by the score, and apparently loves them all, for the assistant M. C. generally has about five scented notes for him daily. His athletic accomplishments are limited, although he did play the star quarterback on the Sec- ond Company Second Class team in all their struggles. On a Saturday night one may find him with Peter at the Magnet, where he invariably goes to view the popular attraction, mov- ing pictures. We all like him and know his future will be of the best. A very companionable sort of chap, bright and entertaining. Beneath a calm surface there burns in Jack a fiery temper.

Chief politician of the Twelfth Company, and foremost in all its mis- chief; leader of its near choir and proprietor of its smoking parlor. Lively and energetic, he is always too busy to bone. Though savvy and with a wonderful knack for machinery, he hovers around the wrong end of the Class, because he spends his time making his own auto, instead of studying someone else ' s hot-air engines. Generally admitted that the Farewell Ball, which he engineered his Second Class year, was the most successful ever given. He really worked during his First Class cruise, and ended up with one of the best records in the Class. This, with his splendid brace and his beautiful voice, made him the best of adjutants. Always a jolly good fellow, overflowing with wit and humor, he makes friends and keeps them. " Say, Cutey, who tied your tie?

Is easily amused and giggles continually at the antics of Beak and Woody. Slow and methodical in his movements, but once get him going and you can ' t stop htm.

ARLY in Pkbe year, Pete ' s remarkable resem- blance to the crow attracted the attention of the upper classmen, and he will still go through his star performance if one approaches him stealth- ily and cries " Caw-caw " in his ear. One of the characters of the Class, a true Red Mike, steady and good-natured. He is practical and will not accept the book ' s proof if not perfectly clear, and is bound to know the reason why in every case. He nearly fa:nted m Seaman- ship recitation once when he thought the instructor ques- tioned him concerning the Dog Winds in the Horse Latitudes. For three years Beak could be found every Saturday after- noon enthroned on the Divan at Doc ' s, puffing away con- tentedly on one of his famous cigars. He has spent his Satur- days this year in his room, and has been just as happy with the same old cigar. Lived with Sock one year, later found refuge with the inventive Pat.

At gymnastic work he has shone throughout our course, and is as clever at that as he is in his studies. Enjoys astonishing his section by the use of long and unusual words, and always gets the benefit of the doubt by his cocksure manner. He carries his head careened to starboard, and when interested, brings all parts of his body into play. He has never gone in for a pink N, and believes in the old adage, " quality not quantity. " For the first few years he was a lion among entertainers, and his shower bath was always crowded. He handed out Jimm.y ' s makes with a lavish hand, and had a repertoire of stories that was hard to beat. He has the factulty of sizing up a situation at a glance, and the complementary one of acting immediately. fllfrea SKpard Wolfe " ALF " •WOLFF.Y " Gray Numerals Alfred Shep rd Wolfe luas born in NemJ Orleans. March 5. 1891. He spent one year at the New Orleans High School before his appointment to the cAcademy from Louisiana. iLF is a fiery little Southerner, possessed oi a quick temper and the Evil Eye. Coupled with rather marked ideas on the subject of races, these attributes have made him a marked man among the lower classes, but particularly with , the Plebes. He was caught talking rather pointedly to one Second Class year and was reported for hazing, along with his inseparable friend, Hyman. The sub- sequent investigation, which made us all rather anxious, was, with the assignment of demerits, the cause of Hyman s resig- nation, and of Wolfe ' s sticking strictly to business for the remainder of the year. He is a regular tartar at rough-hous- ing, breaking up considerable furniture at each session. He is not very savvy, nor lucky in the section room, so has worked harder than most to stay with us, but his grit and determina- tion have carried him through successfully. 1 Ralph Trederic Olood " WOODY " " RALPH " Football Nunioral.s ' Ralph Wood ivas born in Goshen, Indiana, on July b, 1890.

He ivas appointed from Neiv York. OODY is one of the truly sea-going members of the Class, and is justly proud of his barnacles and sea slang. He is touge to a degree, and whenever anything happens down around the old Seventh, they usually look for Woody ' s tracks first. He is one of our leading Nav fiends, and delights in picking up the prof every now and then. On the Cruise he was always able to finish his Day ' s Work an hour before the rest of us, and sometimes threw in a few star-sights to boot. He is a consistent fussjr of excel- lent discrimination, and blossoms forth serenely at every hop. Plays a hard game in the Class football series, and enjoys a good rough house. Affects good music and Omar Khayyam, and has learned a good bit of Kipling through three years with Bake. Has lots of common sense when he chooses to use it, and knows everybody in the Class.

His saintly expression of innocence f ■ , invariably disarms one of any suspicion that he is b ' ing run by Casey. Needless to say, his friends are legion. His unfaiUng cheerfulness, his ever-ready suggestion of some- thing to start, is a sure cure for ennui. But not by any means is he a chap with no serious side. A man with a good, prac- tical mind under all the fun, he has seldom had to worry about semi-anns and anns. His not standing lots higher is no doubt due to the fact that he has always found that studies interiere with his business of keeping himself and everyone around from being rhino, and, therefore, has stopped the studies. ,--jf ...

OXG, weary years ago, i liad to wait until tlicy we rings, anil why tliey hac Now that we have passed througl LONG, wearv vears ago, when we were plches, we used to wonder why all niid hii)inen liad to wait until tlicy were Second Classmen before they could even have their class ' ' to finish Second Class }-ear before they could wear them, the fateful ■ear ourselves, we can feel as others have felt before us — that we have emerged from the thickest of the fight, and that we can appreciate what it means to have been through the Xaval Academy. One would not have to look long to see how dignified we had become the moment we heartl tliose words: " Shall be known as the Second Class. " Second CIa- 1 Ahem— " Stand asi. ' .c, please! ' - " The exercises over, did we rush out of the Aniioiy and race madly for some cher- ished spot, as the mob of elated Youngsters had done the }-ear before? Not a bit of it! We were somebody then: the mainstay of the Academy; people to be looked up to and respected! Second Class cruise, and a foreign cruise at that, was close at hand, and we went about pre- paring for it as Commodore J. Pierpont might have supervised the fitting out of his new steam yacht for a cruise along the Riviera. ( )f cameras we had plenty, and requests for silk .-stockings and gloves— they were too numer- ous to mention! Some working clothes we took along — more to comply with the " regs. " than to have them where we hoidd need them. We weren ' t going to do an_ ' w.rk, anyway: that fact was settled long before in our minds: so why have a lot of clothes and have to scrub them all? Sure uiongli, we took life moderately, not i;nly on hoard ship, but on shore as well. We were mver known to stay out later than 5., : P- m. anywhere ashore — good little boys we were! that as it maw we found, this summer, the l ne ex- did not prove the old rtde, •■Anticii)ation is all the strange delights of Marseilles, of Gihraltar and ' I ' angier; of Hurta and Mount I ' ico! Never again will there be such a cruise as that ! Thirty wonderful, dreamy days of leave were over, and we were all hack again in Washington, anxiously awaiting the great event which is so prominent in the life of a Second Classman — the Class Supper. " Tommie " Thompson and his faithful band had been on the job fi r no one knows how many days, preparing a palace and a dinner that might well have satisfied a king. Not one of us who stood in the New Willard that glorious night and sang " Aloft, Topmen! " can ever forget that scene or the joy he felt at being there — it was as if the whole universe tiiic 1!. .ski;. ll s(ji;. d. had exploded in one burst of good feeling! ' Twas well that we enjoyed ourselves while we could, for the next day we " fetched u]) " with a round turn and a half hitch — a shock that some of us did not recover from for a week. Second Class year had begun in earnest , and we had already heard enough about it to know- that we should have no flowery path to travel. We were somewhat dismayed, to be sure, l)y the size and number of our new books; that was nothing to what we felt when the lessons began to come. To say that we were completely helpless is putting it mildly. Imagine Robinson Crnsoe trying to sail up New York Harbor in a Chinese junk! Arguing profs, and stupendous lessons plagued us in the daytime : at night we were haunted by visions of contracted oritices, sluice gates, cpicyclic trains, panto- graphs, shell boilers, flag signaK. lieiiding lieams, transits of stars, and valve diagram ; inclined |i1,iiks, and elastic lialK : and last of all, by that awesome spectre that will stand u]) before us even to the day of judgment — F=Ma ! ' liy, l ' =Ma could work every problem on the semi-anns., said the powers that be: whether or not, forty-seven of us couldn ' t get it to equal more than a 2. . and great was the consternation thereat! So on and on we plodded, mourning the loss of those who had been " tried and found wanting " ; hopeful, yet fearing down in our hearts that we should never see the things must come to an end sooner or later, and now that the CRUISE RECOLLECTIOX. thro jh. Yet il is over, we can feel that we have for once " earned our salt, lietter the pleasures and the novelties of another foreign cruise. 258 Abhott, H. L. AURIITT. H. V. Al ' .RF.t.L, L. R.

THE eventful clay had come; the fond farewells were spoken, the cheers echoed away in the distant hills of the Severn, and th fluttering handkerchiefs faded from view, — we were embarked on our first cruise ! No more for us the tolling of the days that passed so slowly, or vain guessing at the elusive dessert: we had tramped the sacred confines of Lover ' s Lane, we had the freedom of the Short Cut and the Ratey Stairs — the world was ours, and we thought we had a fence around it. We soon found our billet numbers and J -m M, ? i i Bl I M-ktr-, and, well content to be afloat, we ( ' l;1 " iii,l; with the prospects of a cruise to .■i,L;ii -111 lies when came the first rude awak- ig : " Now all ) ' ou youngsters lay aft on (juarterdeck to pass in laundry bags. " And kept on " laying aft " for the rest of the imer. It did not take long to show us truth of the characterization of a youngster the cruise: " A past-plebe entirely sur- tided by class rates. " We became accus- K ' ll til that as one of the vicissitudes of a al career, and having lost our appetites 1 gained i nu " - cadegs, we made the best of iippiirtiinity to become the most sea- oing -s that the Academy had seen in a decade. lile euir money lasted we played, to the 1 iif our ability, the role of " Yankee sports in foreign ports, " " and we turned away from Europe ' s shores with a close harmony chorus chanting the refrain : " And we ' ll get a quarter When we get to Horta, Just to make one liberty more. ' ' Just at the time when all hands were on the lookout for the Capes of ' irginia, and all thoughts were- turned toward the homes that we had not seen for more than a year, (nu- Class sufTered its first great loss. By the death of Richard- Robin.son Landy, 1913 was deprived of oiie of its staunchest members.— .1 man whom the trials and di.scomforts of lln cruise had proved to us a true friend and comrade. ■- - - OUR FIRST CRtllSE. It; that there is someone liaiiging la and giving the cheers for those hef(irc (iiseinbarkin,!; seemed interminahle : hnt when we got ashore there was a rush for cits ' clothes and railway tickets that made tlie Academy seem like a blur as we passed througii. Perhaps only experience can teach us how to use a month ' s leave to the greatest advantage ; nevertheless it is certain there will never be a time of which we can ha ' ; pleasanter memories than we have of uur Youngster Leave. To return to Bancroft Hall seemed like a fall from Elysium. But being there, we found how good it is to really belong, — to be one of the owners. The satisfaction of climbing up from the bottom round of the ladder and lii on below us can only be equalled by that of grasping a (li|) we leave behind. Having acquired our bathrobes and new text-books we advanced in our second campaign against the 2.5. In the heat of battle we learned several things besides our lessons — among them the fact ' that text-books written for the use of the midshipmen are not necessarily for their enlightenment. Those of us who did not get late lights and a good gouge turned in to dream of couples turning about an integral sign or the moment of a right side elevation, and woke in the midst of an eiifort to write a Spanish dictation translated from the " History of the Navy. " But with the semi-ans over we knew the crest of the grade was passed, and slept more easily. The joy of the trip to Philadelphia and a chance to crow over the Army was the great event of the year and a partial compensation for our disappointment in 1909. Every man in the Class is proud of the N that Pete Rodes wears. Class ailikties l)rought out a good rep- resentation from 1913; it was liard to have the plebes get into the final round of the football championship but we " made up v annexing first honors in basketball. The first hops intro- duced into society a lliuni-lnn eiMp i f Mningster fussers that thrived and increased steadily. Some of our most pnimising Red Mikes utterly failed to fulfill their obligations, but appeared in the g} ' m with two-inch collars and flowing pompadours. And the end is not yet. We have had our troubles this year, as the boys who have been looking out from the inside will admit. But it has been a year of progress in which the Class has been welded together in organization and hi comradeship. W ' e arc ready to go forward to our new experiences with a firm faith in the Class of 1913, and what it can accomplish. 262 Downey. T. F. MCCHIRK, C. L Roberts, S. R..EHL, W. F. Rooks. A.

In one thing, however, we felt ourselves ag- grieved. A combination of fates gave the First Class leave iluring Christmas, and we missed the anticipated joys of making .some of them, at least, ■ ' regret the treatment we had received at their hands.

JT ■? CFTTAy ARMY. o. That tells the tale in a word of one of the must snccessful football seasons we have ever had. It is toward the winning of that game that every energy is bent ; its result determines for us the success or failure of the whole season. Early in the spring, Wheaton, who played such brilliant football at Yale, was secured to coach the football team for the season of 1910, and it is to him and to the able assistance of Lieutenants Berrien and Long. -Ensigns Ingram and Howard, and " Tubby " Meyer, that the credit is due for turn- ing out such a wonderful team. The first game of the season with our old friends, the Johnnies, though marred by a good deal of fumbling, augured well for our succ ; ' in the big game. The work was fast and snappy, and even that early the splendid team work, whicl was displayed. The new plebe material showed up in being particularly noticed. Carey, with his great speed N o scoring was done in the first quarter, though Dalton did some fine running back of punts. In the second quarter a beautiful forward pass to Hamilton put the ball near St. John ' s goal, and Clay carried it aver. Dalton kicked the goal. In the third quarter, after a series of gains, Carey made a touchdown, and in the last quarter Rodes made another. The final score of the first game was 16 to o. The next, with Rutgers, was rather a disappoint- ment, as far as scoring was concerned. Rutgers passed our goal line, but Gilchrist, who had taken after the Rutgers man, was illegally blocked, and Rutgers was penalized fifteen yards, losing their chance of scoring. The Navy at times showed excellent defensive abilities, while its strength and speed were far in advance of what might have been expected at that stage of the season. Dalton shone for us, while the brilliant work of Alverson for the visitors enabled them to make the showing they did. That same day. Army simply swamped the Lehigh team, so things looked a little dark made for our success the whole season, ;reat style, Brown, (lilchrist and Davis was the star ground gainer of the day. 271 f.ir u HERE THEY COME.

" Wiiniie " Spencer was on the job, and the Four N with three " Armys " on the end of it rolled out across the campus to greet them. Every West Pointer had one or more escorts to sh nv them the way up to the fourth deck and try to make him feel at home. The whole atmosphere was tense with excitement over the coming game. West Point came down with the record of a successful season behind them. The Navy had nothing more to back their hopes for winning the game than the fighting Navy spirit that every team is bound to have. Friday passed slowly with only a light practice for both teams. Saturday dawned bright and clear, an ideal day for the game. Long before the time set for the game to, begin the gay crowd began filling up the bleachers and stands around the field. The demand for tickets was far in excess of the number available. Seats were at a premium, and even though they were numbered and reserved, the stands were filled early with the gay colors worn b. - the June Week Girls who braved the rays of the early summer sun. West Ponit had the diamond fir.st for the practice before the game, while our team was in the batting nets. At 2.15 the Navy squad came on the field and the whole brigade rose to then- feet to give the men encouragement. The first team tdi.k the field, liodson served out gum to those that had to sit on the bench, and the last few mimilc ' he I. re the game passed.

The West Point Anderson laid ilnwn a heautifiil sacrifice Lnmt, sending Lyman to second. I ' lver}- man was on his feet talking to the players. It was a tight e at the very beginning, with a man on )nd and Whiteside, the Army ' s far-famed vy hitter, at the bat. Andy was right there, and all Wdiiteside cimld do was a weak grounder to the pitcher, and he was thrown utit at first, Lyman taking third on the play. IJilly Harrison, the Army captain, was next, and he showed what he was made of by a clean single to center, scoring L)-man, putting the Amiy one run to the good in the very first inning of the game. Big Dan caught Llarrison stealing second, and ciur team came in for our half of the inning. Hyatt must have lieen thinking of revenge for the last Army game on ' orden Field, be- cause he was in splendid form, Erwin. Gillam and . bbott all being easy outs. Both teams were cut in order in the second. Cook, Surles and Milliken for the Army, and Callaghan, Os- borne and Aletz for the Navy. Andy was pitching remarkable ball in the third, Ulloa, Hyatt and Lyman going out in nne, two. three order. LTp to this time we had not had a man on first, no one being able to connect with Hyatt ' s curves. " Beau " Battle, the first man up, sent a beautiful, single to the right garden, but was forced at second by Seibert ' s grounder to Milliken. Seibert was out stealing second, and big Andy smote the atmusjihere three mighty blows, thus ending our first faint chance in the game, and the Xavy rooterers subsided again into their seats in olasap- pointment. Nothing e.xciting happened in the fourth Army out at first on what looked to be a safe hit. In the Navy ' s half, hopes were raised again when Callaghan, the first man up. could not get his big body out of the way of Hyatt ' s curves, but a quick double by Hyatt and Cook dashed them all lo the ground. In the sixth il was line.

The race was liver the outer course, starting at the lighthouse and finishing off Cemetery Point. Everyone had confidence in our crew. " Mammy " Wecms, one of the plehc crew the year before, was at stroke, and we counted on him to stroke out a victory to overshaddw the defeat of two years before.

Slowly, under the coaching of Dick Glendon, the machine developed until the seventh of May, when Columbia came down supposedly to take our scalp. It was a big Navy day. All the races were over the upper course, and the Navy " Varsity, pulling Cit Loftin ' s magnificent stroke, came in a length and a half to the good over Columbia. The third crew won from the Arundel Boat Club, and the I lebes ended the day by finishing ahead of the Central High School of Philadelphia. The next two Saturdays showed the real qualities that were in the Navy crew. On the fourteenth, Georgetown sent .lown their tirst and second crews to try d inclusions.

Little interest was formerly taken in this branch of sport ; the only meets held were inter-class, and were not pro- ductive of wonderful performances. Now, however, track athletics is one of the major sports, and by the excellent showing of our teams in outside meets, they take no mediocre rank among the teams of the big colleges and universities. Princeton, Columbia, Lafayette, and Penn. State all lowered their colors to the Blue and Gold in the last season, and it ' s safe to say the team would have made as good a show- ing against Harvard and Yale had they met those teams. . 11 during the autumn of 1909. and in the early spring of 1910, when the weather was inclement, one could see of an afternoon the high jumpers, shot- putters, and long distance men working in the gym, getting down to form. From this preliminary w ' ork most of the track men were in excellent condition when " Scotty " McMasters arrived late in March, and began to whip the track team into shape, as well as to take care of sprained ankles and ' ' Charley-horses. " By the time the first meet rolled around, on April 23, with Princeton, the whole team was in tip-top shape, and performing in record style. Though recent rains had made the track heavy, the time in all the races was exceptionally good. Smith, J. H., 1910, was the star of the meet, winning both the quarter and the half in remarkably fast time, considering the condition of the track. Cunmiins Carey met his first defeat in the hundred, being beaten by Cook by a scant 6 inches. The score of the meet was close, ancl was not decided till the last event had taken place. Final score : Navy, 60} ; Princeton, 56 . Under ideal conditions, the Interclass Track Meet on . " Kpril 30 brought out some very WP g ' ' «l work, four old records going by the board. In the low hurdles Dallon lowered the y ' record by 2 5 of a second, and Miller lowered the high Inn-dlc record by 3 s sec. Asserson ■ hoisted the record for the pole vault B two inches, while Mintze and Lodcr I B added four feet to the haminer throw B| P record. The meet went to 1910 with fl a total of 38 points, the Plebes run- H ning a close second with 35. B The teatn experienced little H trouble in defeating Columbia the B following Saturday.

It was hard, l)niUL;ht the laurels of victor - and the Intercolle fn un Xew York. At the lici inninsj. Larimer was the most likely candidate fi ir a job. Captain Merrill had lots to learn, and as for the remainder of the s(|iiad they were all unknown quantities. For the first match Princeton sent a cry weak team, and took home a defeat, 9 — o. Merrill, Larimer and Scott comprised our team. After this came a series of club and pro- at showed the vast room for improvement and the many points in which we were weak. The . ' ew ' ork h ' encers Club, one of the strongest teams in the country, was pushed hard to win, ( — 3, and this result showed that the team had the making of one of the best the . cadeniy had ever turned nut. Larimer had been doing the most consistent work of the nian - men tried, but soon after this meet he had trouble with his eyes and had to stop, thus de- privini;- the team of its best man. It was a hard blow, but Merrill, Hall, and Scott, lid not lose the confidence that played such an important jjart in the big match in New York. Cohinil)ia and Pennsylvania were disposed of, 7 — 2 and 6 — 3. Wendell, Penn ' s left-handed captain, captured all three of his bouts. Left-handers were cnir stumbling blocks. Cornell sent a team down with two left-handers and took our scalp, 5 — 4. Sefiors Ascension and Castillo, two of the best fencers of Spain, came down on the day of the Cornell match on Lieutenant Johnson ' s invitation and showed the team the style of the Spanish school of fence. After the Cornell match the team went to work to analyze the style of a left- h.ander. Professor Morrison went down to the armory every afternoon and gave the team excellent practice that made itself felt during the remainder of the season. Penn.sylvania, Columbia, and Princeton were to come here on March m for the ])reliminaries of the Intercollegiate Meet, 1)ut Princeton did not sho on account of the illness of one of their team.

Norm i)ushing him hard, but the little left-hander won out after two ties. I ' .xcitcment was inten-e thai night during the finals in the A.stor ball room. We were out looil. but liad a damper put on our hopes when Scott lost to Cocroft of the . rmy, putting one bout ahead and luaking the score between the Academies four to four. The next bout between Merrill and Dargue of the . rmy, and Skipper, fencing autiful style, won handily. Scott and I Tall followed this with two ant victories, giving us the meet and liriuging the trojihy hack here to the Academy. The team of 1910 got it, and it ' - u|) to future . avy teams to bring it liack here where it lieloni s. The climax of the fencing season i alway the Intercollegiate 1-iiials in New York. This year, after the elimination meU on .Marc 25, the Xavy had high hopes, hut an unexjiected rexersal of fori forced theoi into third place. The s,|uad, consisting .f Scott, Larimer, I latch. Dodd. Keivc ,: (), and arrived in New ' ' ork that afternoon, and proceeded to th I lotel Asior. In the evening they were the gue-t of Air. j. W. ■on at a very enjoyable theatre party. The fencing began l- ' riday evening on the Hotel . -tor Iv Ciarden, when sixty-three bouts were held, of which Cornell wo seventeen, . rmv sixteen, ' av - ten, I ' etm. eight, Columbia six, .■m Harvard six. Larimer ln t oiih ' one, the last, of his seven houts, and that one was to Roos, the clever Cornell southpaw. ( )n the next afternoon avy won ten of her eighteen houts, Cornell fifteen, .Vrniy thirteen, Columbia seven. Harvard five, and I ' enn. four. This put the Navy out of the running for first or second place. Satnrdav night the finals were held in the ball room before a large number of spectators. Navy won only two of her six bouts, while the . rm)- cut down Cornelfs lead in a garrison finish from three to one. In the last of the scheduled bouts Rayner, of the . rmy, won from Roos, of Cornell, thus gi ing Uoos antl Larimer fourteen victories and one defeat apiece. In the extra bout to decide the tie Roos won by a narrow margin, and secured the individual cham- pionship. The final standing was as follows: Cornell. 35: Army, 34; Navy, 22: Columbia, 18; Penn., 14; and Harvard, 12. This is the first time for many years that one of the service schools has not won. After the fencing was finished a very enjoyable dance was held that lasted until one. When one considers that Larimer had lost over two weeks of practice immediately precetling the meet, his record is all the more creditable, and presages a most successful season for him next year. The untiring eflforts of Lieutenant Lannon, Instructor Morrison, and Swordmaster Four- non are greatly ajipreciatcd, and it is felt that their work this year will bear fruit next season. pial!kw itj vili l lu 1 Till 111., iLal u k1s of tliL iitk w I. he ml il) ut the iiu 1( of March, 1910, when a squad of about one hundred candi- (.lates invaded the range across the Severn.

The new men first experienced " Buck - I ' ever, " and many " Catholic Bull ' s-eyes " and " Flyini; I ' ours " or " Swabs ' " were recorded from the pits : but the team finally won. The next match, with Washington, U. C, National Guard turned also in our favor.

The strong team from Lehigh suft ' ered defeat in the following game, the superior team work of our team telling at the critical moments over the speed and fine stick work of the visitors. The last two games of the season were defeats for the blue and gold, but were by far the hardest fought games of the season.

In years gone by the first Navy • w iniming squad was organized under Jimmie Doyle, but it consisted f a l)uncli of Thursday grafters who never went in the tank. jdwevcr, this ear someone got busy, and everyone was surprised to hear that Norm Scott and his bunch of human fishes were to have a meet with the Nautilus Club of the Washington Y. M. C. A. It was something of a novelty, and the galleries and the space around the tank were crowded with a curious audience long before the teams showed up. The team fnmi ' a hingti:)n had the reputation of having some of the best swiiumers in the country among its members, and we really didn ' t expect to carry off the meet in the manner in which we did. ■, ' anderkloot and Center, who rejiresented the Navy, were and their success showed the possibility for the development of nry.

P ' ive out- side meets were held, in three of which the Navy racket wielders came out winners. The team, which comprised the following: Sampson, I ' nder- wood, Fulton, and Parmalee, experienced little difficulty in defeating . ' St. john " s in the first outside contest of the season, hy a score of 3 to I. Gettysburg College also lost to the Navy team in the secon l contest. The matches were all spirited and well playeil, Xavy winning through their team work in the cloubles. On April 30 the team defeated ISucknell after the hardest kind of a match in the doubles, by a close score of 2 to I. The next two matches, with rornell and the Marylaml . thletic Club, were lost bv Xavy, due partly to the greater experience of the visiting teams. We hope Ibat a greater interest will lie taken in this branch of s])ort than heretofore, and that this season is only a prelude to many a brilliantly successful one to come. THE COURTS. OLcF ( )LI ' " at the Xaval Acadcni}- has Ijeen nothing more or less than a joke during the two } ' ears we have been allowed the use of the links on the Goxernment Farm, liecause mcist pe(.iple have the idea that it is an old man ' s game, and that there is not enough excitement in it for a red-blooded man. Let them try it once and they will soon tind it isn ' t quite as easy as it looks, and before long you will find them scratching their heads and wondering how they could make the next hole in one less stroke than last time. And then again, the links, while good enough for an afternoon ' s fun, are red for a match with an outside team so that the clement of competition has never entered into the question. Every spring the annual tournament is held, and Jack Gates usually takes all honors ; but he hasn ' t had an easy time winning, be- cause there are many good golfers in the Brigade, and when the time comes they ge ier- :.ul l any turn out to snow what they can do.

Here an able speaker, generally some leading cnllcge association worker, though frequently a naval officer, gives expression to straightfor- ward Christian sentiment. The attendance at these meetings is large, and this is particularly note- worthy in view of the fact that time for them is taken directly from study hours. Much attention is given to Bible study. Surgeon D. N. Carpenter, U. S. N., again instructed the normal class. This man ' s intense earnestness held the interest of the group leaders, and his knowledge of the Bible aided them materially in conducting their classes. There were twenty-five groups of ten each through this past year. Other minor activities of the Association consist in arranging promenade cdincrts ami entertainments; supplying the reading-room with periodicals; providing each practice ship with Imoks for lii lu reading during the summer cruise; in fostering two publications, " Reef Points " and the Bulk-tin ; ami last of all in supplying teachers for the Cliapel Sunday School, which is composed of children living in the yard. As an experiment V. M. C. A. work was continued during the summer. Sunday meetings held aboard the Iowa were well attended. Aboard the same ship, a large Bible class met daily, down in " Central Station, " and as a result several group leaders were prepared for the year ' s work. Let us hope this experiment will he repeated, causing the Association to grow both in influence and in numbers. THE OFFICERS OF ' THE Y. M. C. A. ■ ' Peklkv, R. N., President. ' " LETCHER, J.

The major part of the time we spent in Gardiner ' s ' Bay, and sometimes when bright work or cleaning out boats did not interfere, we even went on liberty. Of course we enjoyed ourselves on liberty as only Youngsters can. and many were the races for the last boat.

( )nce more June Week, the golden time for the fussers. On a rainy June morning we bade farewell to 1909, and with dignity proportionate to our advanced stage, entered into our Second Class year. With a squadron of four ships, the Olympia, Ciiicago, Hartford and Tonopah. we left for the cruise over the same old up-coast route, ut our hopes for a good lazy cruise were soon dispelled, much to the sorrow of Plug Holt, and we " found that even we of the Second Class were iippoced to work. We stood anchor and life buoy watches like veritalile mngsters, and marveled at the inability of the oftieer- to A vou.xcsTiiR ' s KooM. -ee iliin-- fiMni mw view-point. Yet with all this we had an imtiMially eiiiM al)le erui.se, and made some big liberties in New London. Xewjiort, Boston, Portland, and I ' .ar llarlHn-. Swimming parties on the beach of Long Island, and a little game now and then in the forc-t.ip. relieved the tedium of the cruise. Fuzzy Rutter and Wolfard made a quick getaway from Relentless Rudolph one evening by sliding down a ventilator for three decks; Sock Keep made a big hit with a fictitious young person on the ] laine coast, and waited vainly in the rain for her to put in her appearance, while the rest of us gathered behind the mainmast and enjoyed the joke. Soon we were on the back track down the coast, and those of us who were fortunate enough not to have overstayed liberty and were not suhjeet to a re-exam, went on leave with jeiyful hearts, fully resolved to have the best time ever as a tinal respite for the arduous year uji n which we were about to enter. . t the end of leave, we gathered from oiu- native heaths at the Belvedere in l?alti- niore for our Class Supper, which marks the half-way milestone of the course, and enjoyed ourselves to the limit, with no thought of what the year had in store for us. Returning to Annapolis the next mrrning, we drew about forty pounds of good, solid text books and lined up for the fray. We soon found our- one of the 40%. im selves up against a very pe- culiar and disheartening prospect — a new Regula- tion Book with countless departures from old prece- dents and customs w.i thrust upon u . am! inspec- tions and demerits were as common as house-flies in June ; some of the chosen A) sixxri. few and Barr drew buz- zards.

A. will move on without our presence, yet we Imiie that we will liO re- membered long after we leave. Forgotten are all the hard knocks and blows of fortune, and in our four years ' retrospect we recall only the pleasant side of our life. Our story as a Class is soon told ; we have sung our Swan Song, and we go out to the guns of the Service with the thought that the happiest days of our live have been s|)ent here during the formative period of our exist- ence as naval officers. M ' Y V,.. ■ m pB kg V E fi l . m J w r ll|||L A y ■■ ' ii f To our hops more than to any other of our recreations is due the credit for relieving much of the intensity of Naval Academy life. True, athletics are of absorbing interest, alike to player and spectator : some of us have hobbies : and there are always the gatherings of good friends for rough- house or spree: but these help to bear the monotony rather than relieve it. Hops, though, have a potency unrivalled, for they bring us into closer contact with the great outside world. Then. too. ! ' - y in:r:iluce the feminine factor, and serve as the sometimes necessary excuse for much of the " fussing " that has always been so strongly in vogue at the Academy. As a body, we recognize their benetiL and by far the most of us embrace everj- opportunity to enjoy them. Of course, there are some who never attend; but they can ' t dance, can ' t talk, are not pretty, or have a hobby, or an aversion for women in general. " To an observer in the balcony at the gymnasium the spectacle of a hop must greatly resemble a giant whirlpool. E.xcept for the intervals between dances there is the steady whirl in one direction — a whirl increasing in speed of rotation as the center is reached, where devotees of the " Boston " and the. " drop " hold forth, forming a fitting vortex. There is the more or less quiet outskirt. formed of the seated rows of placid and stately matrons, and little groups of uniformed men looking out over the scene. Occasionally petty e.xcitements create stirs at places in the border, much as unexpected iittle eddies break at random places through the outer surfaces of the pool. In the corners are occasional little back-lashes, where isolated couples " Boston " violently, in comparative freedom from interruption, like the reverse currents of slack water at places along a river ' s bank. There is the hum of conversation and the sound of many feet, partly neutrahzing the individuality of the music, and lending suggestion of the muffled roar of distant falls and the rush and hiss of the whirlpool. The pauses, the splendid medley of colors, the individuality of the dancers themselves, dim the illusion. The mighty whirlpool dissolves into its component parts, revealing a complexity of formation as wonderful as its effect as a whole. The solid monotone of the men lends character to the scene, endowing it with an impressiveness that causes a lasting effect in the mind of the observer, but perhaps a closer scrutiny of the men themselves, as they pass in the relative quiet between dances, and a more discerning glance at the myriad tj-pes of wholesome . nierican beauty in evidence on all sides, will lay greater claims to remembrance when the hops are past and gone. N ' ear the center of one side of the great gvTnnasium stand the receiv- ing party, in a pleasant little alcove of palms, shaking countless hands, mumbling countless names, instantly forgotten, -and -repeating countless formal words of greeting. But how inspiring, on the morrow, to read in the Evening Capital how graciously the charming Madame X received, in a magnitlcent gown of pate de foie gras garnished with onions, assisted by Midshipman Z of the graduating class. Forming a splendid border for the scene are the stately chaperones. They range from recent bride to silvery-haired grand-dame, yet ihey share alike a lively interest in the evening ' s merriment. Occasionally a T ' v..- 7 nn 330 iiK-nl .•ininiates a group :is sonic enraptured couple floats 1 other to heed the presence of otlicrs.

Even the veteran damsels, who have passed through a baker ' s dozen of them more or less, are never too bored to refuse another chance for a week with the Middies in their habitat. It means for them a week of frivolity, of frank good time, of martial exhibitions, of Hops inilitaire. Then indeed dull care is banished — " then if ever come perfect days.

THERE were hundreds of people down at after the night of the June Ball. The crowd couh classes — girls, relatives, friends, midshipmen, and laundry bags, with the girls and laundry bags most in evidence in point of number. There were the usual mad dashes back into Bancroft Hall by the poor wretches who at the last in- stant remembered some article of importance left behind. There was the usual long delay during embarkation on the Standish and in the cutters. But there were more than usual of the fluid evidences of grief on the part of the fond parents — and friends. For we were off at last for Europe. The rumor of a foreign cruise, starting about Semi-Ann time, had grown by leaps and bounds until it reached such proportions and attained such kinetic energy that the Powers succumbed to its force. The Iowa, Indiana and Massachusetts were detailed for the cruise, and upon this particular morning we found ourselves embarking on the three ships, the Iowa men from the Standish, and the others from cutters. The Massy was anchored in midstream, and her outfit was aboard in no time at all. The other two vessels were two miles out 1 n i(,n In-fore the Standish and the cutters disci ormng listinct _,-T- a r- r? rr r- -- n •■ " I - We found the ships very broad, each of twice- the loiiii.iyc, -cM.ral tiiiu the fighting abiHty, and any number of times the inconvenience, from our point of view, of our old friend, the Olympia. We knew from the start that we were to be crowded, but our former cruises had in a way inured us to sucli a condition. In passing, one miglit remark that it requires considerable ingenuity to stow away in a tiny cupboard-like space enough clothes to last one for three months. However, we all managed to accomplish this feat, even the Youngsters succeeding at last, after agonizing struggles. Divine service in the Academy chapel, which was scheduled for the morning after embarka- tion, was called oft ' on account of the choppy weather, and as the day wore on the Hay l.iecame so rough that no small boats dared venture out. Thus it was that we sailed the ne.xt morning without having seen any of the fair femmes who had promised so faithfully to sail out and spend Sunday aboard. The day ' s run down to Norfolk was as intensely stupid as most Chesapeake vovages usu- ally are. We had barely anchored oft ' the old familiar Chamberlin when the coaling gear began to make its dusky appearance, and we turned in early that night in preparation for the next day ' s hard work. Assured in advance that we would coal but once during the cruise, we fairly ate up the coal during the whole long day. The Iowa, as flagship, having snitched most of the lighters, finishetl first, but the poor old Massy had to complete the job by searchlight. However, we had all day liberty on the following day. All hands went ashore, and one would have thought from ,tjhe ap- pearance of the Chamberlin ' s dining room that it was the last meal of the condemned. Most of u-.. none too certain as to our sea legs for the morrow, and ahs .hitely certain as to the quality, or lack I if quality, of our mess, made the most out of our last civilized meal. Even now the mem- ory lingers as one of the most pleasant of the cruise. When land finally disappears from view, one is theoretically supposed to have some kind of a thrilling feeling, especially upon starting on a long voyage. However, about all the feeling m() t i)f us had when we watched the low Virginian coast sink out of sight was a sense of pro- funnd relief at not being seasick as yet. Some hours later we experienced thrilling feelings of a ililkTeiit nature, and wlu-n tlic cold yjray dawn nf another day appeared, it found us unutterably, profoundly, miserably siek. Some attempted breakfast. They were sorry ! Others did not attempt breakfast. They were also sorry. In fact, it made no difference as to what we did and what we didn ' t. We felt just as badly citlier way. We wished that we were dead or back in Crabtown, and we wished most of all that our ships would sink. ' c felt that we would be twice as happy as pale corpses in battleboats miles licneath the sea, where they would lie quietly on their sides, than as nearly dead midshipmen on rolling, pitching, twisting, heaving ballyhoos. Let us pass quickly over those first three days and their absolute misery. The fourth day found us in the Gulf Stream. The weather was warm and pleasant, and the sea much calmer. Most of the First Class soon got the hang of Nav, and the Day ' s Work took us on an average about six hours to complete. Some of us never did savvy the system, and were forever sitting up late at night, working feverishly away, stopping now and then to mutter and to light a fresh cigarette. The food was continuously and everlastingly awful. The common mess proved not only shy of luxuries, but also of nourishment. One of the most popular dishes was composed of 99 per cent, water and i per cent, oatmeal. At least it did not injure us. Alost of the First Class subsisted on bad cofifee, chocolate purchased at the canteen, and cigarettes. For three or four days after we crossed the Gulf Stream we had a merry little gale. We rolled, pitched, and shipped water over the foc ' sles and quarterdecks until their hatches had to be battened down. The waves were so beautiful that camera films were used up in a magically short time. The principle on all the ships seemed to be to allow as little sleep as possible. In regard to noise, it was even worse than our dear old Renny-puggy Chi of pleasant memories. At all hours of the night one heard exhortations bawled out and shrieked from all sides, " A-a-11 the Third Section lash and carry! " " Man the a hwllip! One! Three! Five! and Seven! " and such pleasant little exclamations sifted through our dreams. Anrl tlien tlir. c m miners!

Rise! Lash and can ' R muun I " This last with a hoinble nasa body could sniff the early moon, if he wanted to do such an abnormal thing! Ifs sea-goin ' , though. Ijut we survived it all. To break up the monoton}- the Iowa gave a couple of shows, which made a huge success, in spite of the fact that onl - Incal talent participated. The Wop made a scene at one of these shows by nearly breaking his neck. At the close of the entertainment the band played the " Star Spangled Banner, " as is customary. The Wop, who had been seated astride one of the big turret guns, with his feet dangling above the heads of the audience beneath, at- tempted to stand at attention, and promptly fell off. disapiiearing into a very indignant outfit below, who jumped on him roundly at the conclusion of the national air. When we at last sighted the Scilly Islands and steamed past them, we all felt that the first and worst leg of the cruise was over. We felt better yet when we swept past Eddystone Light into Plymouth Harbor, and at last dropped our mudhooks in the Hamoaze, with Devonport lying before us. Never had ordinary grass appeared so green ; never had a crowded town looked so attractive. The rows and rows of little oblong chimneys, and the several old towers that rose from among the houses like landmarks made us all eager to go ashore. But we wasted no time on the scenery. We were below happily packing for our Lojidon trip on the morrow when we heard shouts of rage and screams of anguish above. Rushing up. we were confronted with an order forbidding our cherished three days ' trip to London on the grounds that the largest city of the world could not accommodate five hundred extra guests. " Due to the height of the ncial M.iMin, " so the order ran. and there was some wailing and gnashing of teeth and profoundly impressive remarks. How- ever, since cvervone was tallying at once, and no one was paying the slightest hit of attention to an)-or encc. agani. ter the rdc It m; :ind w de no difFer- e wi lapp w: passed tlie next morning for " All the on the quarterdeck, the gun decks of the midshipmen " to fall in on the quarterdeck, the gun decks of the s(|ua lron were in wonderful confusion. There was a mass of blouses, whisk brooms, suitcases, and midshipmen, apparently hopelessly mixed. In two minutes, however, not a midshipman was to be found below decks. On either side of each quarterdeck were two solid ranks of midshipmen, each man with his suitcase. Here and there some, wiser than the others, carried rainclothes on their arms. It was no time at all before our cutters had carried us the distance to Millbay Docks. There was some attempt made to keep a military formation while waiting for the trains, hul for once the outfit would not stay put. Those two funny little English trains never fully realized what had hit them. Each com- partment was full to overflowing, both with smoke and with midshipmen. It was well for the peace of all concerned that they made no stop between Plymouth and London. The guards and the waiters of the dining car were soon reduced to a state of fear and trembling, and we had no trouble from them. They looked worn and haggard, and anything but ha]3p -. The scenery was not so very different from that observed from the windows of an Ameri- can parlor car. Everything — fields, houses, hills — reminded one of a toy shop. It was pastoral, all right, with here and there an overgrown ruin. We saw King Alfred ' s Horse — a giant land- mark — a perfect animal formed by cutting away the turf and exposing the chalk cliff on the side of a steep slope. Upon our arrival at Paddington Slatidii there was one mad scramble for taxis, and then a melting into thin air. To attempt to enumerate what we ilid in Liindun wnuld result in snme five hundred pages to be added to this book. We invaded the Cecil, the . " axny, and all the hotels. We lived in taxis, and spent most of the day and night skimming along at a good speed. Most of us tried conscientiously to do the town. The Tower proved very popular. There we saw relics and grewsome things galore. The headsman ' s axe and block on which certain honorable gentlemen — and la lies, t(«i — paid the penalty uf ihsfa -, ,r wiili the powers that were, was really rather a passalilc relic. The armor of the ililTerent aye , the coronation robes which the late King Ed- ward and his queen wore, the wonderful old swords and sabers, and above all, the Tower itself. were so fascinating that it was very hard to tear one ' s self away. Everybody went to Westminster Abbey, with its beautiful chimes, old naves and towers. The famous names and interesting inscriptions seemed so numberless that one could have spent days reading them alone. We taxied out to Buckingham Palace, saw guard mount, and came back by way of Hyde Park and Rotten Row. We went along the Thames Embankment, across the famous London Bridge, and came back from old London by way of Trafalgar Square, where we saw Land- -seer ' s beautiful lions. We lunched at Simpson ' s, dined at Scott ' s, dined again after the theatre at Prince ' s, waited until the next day for Frascati ' s, and never ate two meals in the aine place. We mobbed the theatres. . ' few iiy lii.i h minded persons went In the Covent Garden Theatre and heard Tetrazzini in " Rigulettu " uv " Louise. " The majority, however, made a vio- lent rush for " The Balkan Princess, " " The Arcadians, " or " The Dollar Princess. " " Our Miss Gibbs, ' ' and Pavlova in her Russian dance, were also great favorites. In fact, each man came back swearing that the show he had ju t seen w;is the best ever. It certainly was hard to leave a cit containing such a multi])licit}- of attractions, but we all returned on time. The homeward jiinrne_ ' was one continual interchange of wild and th tales, though most of the experiences were similar. i.un(ltlicslni)se-..;ilol irly clean. hnr llic wii succeeding days the uain desire was not foixl, )iU sleep : for we were all Aiini dill with the Ldndmi After London, we found I ' lyiiiMiitli stupid.

By the natural laws of American gravity, an .Xnuii- can tram would upset at the first corner. In England, wIkii it comes to speed, they treat life like a funeral. There are just three things to see in I ' lyminith — the Tnwn Hall, St. Andrew ' s Chapel, and the Iloe. The Town Hall i oddly beautiful in its architecture, the Chapel is interestingly old, having been started in 1300, or some such date, but the thniir rth I ' lyniMiuh.

We spent a whole morning ashore, where e were hospitably escorted about the Yards by he r)ritish oiificers. We were free to ask what- ■ver questions we cared to ask — but we learned lothing. We did a great deal of looking at ■m|ily dry docks, of walking along dark tunnels, r prrpinL; into buildings at a safe distance from he machinery inside, of viewing new ships across an intervening space of several hundreil yards, but as to getting any of the new principles of British naval construction — nothing doing. It seemed no time at all before we were out at sea again. After the first morning when wi all felt a little scjueamish, we soon found our m. i legs again, and were shortly engaged m batthn,, with our old friend, the Day ' s Work, or hghtni., with indicator cards. Taking an indicator card is the pleas un est job imaginable. First ) ' ()U get an nidicatm from the log room. An in licatiir is m uncn tion of the devil — a shiny, nickeled thms with a string, springs, and a pencil point. This pencil point is peculiar because it is always blunt, and it makes a mark two inches broad. The springs are phony, too. You spend an average of four hours getting your three cards. You get them eventually, but not until you have broken two indicators and three strings, lost four springs, insulted everybod} ' in the engine-room, dropped a wrench on the chiefs head, are dripping with perspiration, have exhausted your vocabulary, have sworn to resign iinniediatel , and — vell. aie in a mess generally. ( " )utside the Rock we were greeted by the Mift and balmy mistral. One brief hour we saw the Rock, and then the great landmark faded away astern of us just as she had emerged from the clouds before us earlier in the day. For several hours before we got into the harbor of ] Tarseilles there was a heavy sea. and we were all glad to pass between the huge rocks that mark the entrance. As we steamed along we were attracted by the delightful scenery, the high, whitish cliffs with the town in the back- ground, the Chateau d ' lf, and the beautiful Cathedral de Notre Dame de la Garde. We were delayed getting in by the foolish act of a . " - ecdnd Classman on the .Massachusetts, who left the shi]) without permission. I luwe er. ln ' was soon picked up, and we ran around ihe end ol akwatcr and into the inner hasni, A-e nv.nre.l ann.Kt a ,i;T,,n|, of sliip .m all nations. eille was line. The shops, the )le, the little cafes, witli their tables on the street, all were fascinating. Everybody visited Notre Dame de la Garde, ascendin.i;- draulic elevator. The Chatean d ' lf, isolated est, was not generally visited, although a few k over the scene of the Count of Monte Cristo ' s imprisonment. Everybody took the drive along the fashionable Rue del Prado, enjoying the cool shade and the light, pretty villas and ' prettier mademoiselles. Coming back, we rLturned on the Corniche, the pretties road in France, and everyone i itcd La Re- serve. With the sea on one side and high cliffs on the other, with a hazy blue appearance to everything, the road is very picturesque. The American and British consuls gave receiitions to the First Class on .Mondav and Wednesda}- of our stay. These were charming, and they form part of our most pleasant mem- ories of the cruise. Our own little Iowa band, led by the stately Signor Cariana, supplied the music, and with pretty French girls and stately old countesses and generals floating around, we had a glorious time. On Thursday, July 14, occurred the PYench imitation of the .American Fourth, their celebration of the anniversary of the fall of the Bastile. A number of us were invited to attend the manoeuvres of tlie Fifteenth Army Cnri.s, and in spite of the tremendous heat and the du. ' -t, we enjoyed the spectacle very much. Our own ships proved .so attractive to the populace that llu-v literally vanned aboard. Thr liny boats scrambled about the gangway in such numliers that it became dangenms. Resort was ultiniatcl)- had to tlie fire hose. " Allez ile! ' " bawled the quartermaster to the mob alongside the gangwa a chorus of voices. . nd then they turned on the water. Its effect in niakinj their minds was truly remarkable. The leg of the cruise fr,.ni .Marseilles to Gibraltar proved to be tiresome. To begin with, some idiot and a wrench g,,t mixe.l up with one of the Indiana ' s cylinders ta such an extent that we limped along ai low peed .luring the entire leg. The Mediterranean remained calm " ig the wholi- trip, .and .me cnld n.,t have g.Jtten respectably seasick even if he had so desired. " X. ; Da: :s cliange Although we liarl been promised at the beginning of tlie cruise that we should have to coal but once, four o ' clock of the first morning aftci an- choring off Gibraltar found us in coal- ing clothes and ready for work We coaled from miserable little lighters, and it made a long day ' s work. The next morning a large part on a special steamer left for Tangier, while the rest of us went ashore to investi- gate the little tnwn that snuggled up iin.kT ilie IcMniiu- Rock. Sliortl after we had landed we lound ouische on the main Ntrecl 111 " the tnwn — kjng, narrow anil picturesque. There was but (lie sidewalk, and that was so narrow that pedestrians solved the dit ticulty by walking down the middle of the street. Small one- room shops lined liotli sides, with here and there an odd Moorish- appearing house, will. lawless, aii.l with balciniies on the second There the Indian bazaars made tlii presence known by gay silk Hoor overhanging the street, robes fluttering in the breezes. In these bazaars lay the real sport the town offered. They contained a profusion of shawls, curiosities, laces, and silks, and these were for sale at what seemed to our American-bred ideas of value to be extremely low prices. Warned in advance, however, we bought nothing without bargaining for it. The general procedure is this: Vou saunter intn a bazaar rather vaguely, attempting to liok as if you were bored to death. Oh, no! You want imiliiiig. Vou merely came in to rest from tlie heat. You take (mr lime ahmil everything you buy. You haggle over each article until you have beaten the liindoo down to fifty per cent, of his stated price.

Algeciras lay directly across the bay from where we had anchored, and it looked so en- ticing in the distance that several of us deter- mined to visit the place. We crossed in a little yawl yclept the iMargharita, and landed on a full- 365 _k with main Mildiei tuitting town, with SC011.S ot httk i)ink and h the onl} rcMdence ut an si l It Iddk d someuhi walled garden It was very hot and dusty throughout the day, ami we were glad to seek the cool shade offered hy the gardens of the Hotel Keina ictnria, where Kmg Alfonso and Queen Ena of S])aiu spent part of their honeymoon. The tables were set out of doors, where one had a full view of the beautiful gardens. One magnificen arbor in particular was wonderful in its riotous coloring. It was a full hundred yards long, and it was completely covered with a mass of deep pink and purple flowers, the like of which we had never seen before. We felt that here was a place in which even a king and queen might spoon. We who went to Tangier had a beautiful time. We embarked on the crazy old steamer about half past eight. There was a considerable sea running during the whole three-hour trip across, yet due to the course steered we rolled but little. A kind of lemonade was available, and we drank it with doubtful relish. However, the time passed quickly enough, and at eleven o ' clock we found ourselves anchoring off Tangier. Due to the shelving beach, we had to anchor about half a mile out, and the natives swarmed out in tiny l)oats to take us ashore. In less time than it takes to tell about it, we were all packid iicallv away in these boats, and were being rowed quickly ashore by the lusty Moors in llieir Mild cii lunies. We could not understand for some tiiiu anil oihers turbans. We soon found out that unmarried men wore fezzes, and the benedicks turbans. The remainder of the costume consisted of a robe of light material reaching to the knees, and wrapped curiously aliout the body, and large, baggy trousers. The younger men did not wear the outer robe, but had short jackets instead. The legs were bare from the knees down, and their feet were encased in red or Nellow slippers with no r ' :. 1.

We were a gay crowd going back — for a while. Everyone wore a red fez hung rakishly over his ear, all were brandishing cutlasses, and all hands smoking shamelessly. This riot lasted until we were well out from land. Then, one by one, we drooped. .A frightful pallor settled down on all our faces. One by one we sneaked to the side. We were htailni- directly into one of the worst head seas we had ever experienced. That little steamer nilled, twisted, and creaked. We rolled, twisted and groaneil. This was seven times worse than the rolling we did The -e were no wi .f re.l fezzes. ■M m :,f fifty about the lUit it cm o ' clock we weri very glad to b were aboard the M he Gibraltar iMnle— and and at eight-thirty we s again, vieing with each other in telling the biggest and most interesting lies. We had a rough passage to Madeira, and were )ig, round, brown island at dawi the coast most of the morning. K.iumlnig ,i mt aliout noon, b ' unchal lay before us, and we headed directly for the harbor. Imagine, if m can, a semi-circular Grecian amphitheatre, put the uest of water for the stage floor, and stick rows and rows of liiiuses in for seats. Then put a blue sky overhead, and a long, a])rnpt rise of brownish mountain behind it, and you have Funchal. er - ])retty, very interesting it looked as we ran in close to the shore and dropped our anchor within hailing distance of a handsome f Ihr m; 1 1 like iL- lunisc-s fi ll(_nv the curves of liii cxciK ' inciU in Madeira is to go sk-igiung.

The most interesting feature of h ' unchal wa-- the " lleave-I-Dives, " as we dubbed them on the day of our arrival. Even before we had an- chorul. the tiny native boats swarmed al)out the vessel. They were filled with small lads, ranging from si.x or eight years of age up to twenty. Each little brute kept np a continual hmvl of " Heave! 1 dive I " accompanying this with gyratory ges- ture-. We broke out onr copper coins, just as t.uri.sts here have done for years, and them one bv one into the clear water near the boats. In a trice one could see an agile figure gliding down — ten, fifteen, twenty or more feet, and then emerge, tritunphant, the coin held be- -.iw ;i o.in lo-t. ( )n ihe whole, Madeira proved rather an interesting place. Its i),,Ssibilitics for amusement, however, were easily exhausted. It is an ideal place for a houevmoon or a rest cure, but since we were out for neither of these sports, the beau- ties of Eunchal soon palled.

These Nav squabbles can be easih dnidcd int three parts. Most iiii])ortant comes the s(|iulibk wit Xav itself, which is almost big enough t.i Ik t i fight. The (.. M.

The second sijuabble is with the other people, wdio are sure that they are right. Von know that you are wrong, but out of force of habit you have it out. Last of all comes the squabble with the Nav in- structor himself. This is briefesl of all. and shoul.l you indulge yourself in it to any e.xtent, the results are disastrous — to. you. The second day out from Funchal we passed S;inta Maria, the first of the . zores, on our starboard hand. Jt was the ne.xt morning before I ' ico and then J ' " ayal came in sight, and we saw the white houses of U ..■ M ' K 111 hot sun. The harbor in ux-d a the prettiest of any (hiring :-e. Circular in form, it hes be- uls of I- " ayal and I ' ieo, with en- ler side. On i ' ico Island is the Monte I ' ico, which i a mile and The slni)e near tile .-hore line is trances on huge volcai a half higl gradual, ami a il weq)- up to ihe pointed -unin it follow.s a regular curve, like one of tlio ,ung-ter hvperbolas. ( )ii one ide of the .summit is a cone-.shaped hill, looking for all the woi like a little cocked hat on the side of the head of some fat -ild Dutchman. Thi- caji, wit ' severe regularity of the slope, gives the peak an artificial appearance. The effect is dispelled to a great extent by the soft, white clouds which liide part of the upjier half of the peak. There is a crater at the summit, and a streak of smoke makes a regular appearance from the interior ot the volcano. On the I ' ayal side is a large extinci volcano. Its slopes have been cultivated for years, and have Ircu cut up into tiny square fields until they reseml)led n. .thing s... much as a huge green chessboard, with a small white castle on top for a player. The town itself is stretched along a semi- circular shore from the extinct volcano to the |irecipitous bluff which mark the further harbor entrance. The houses are all white or i.)ink in color, and they appeared from the ships to be scattered about without any .semblance of order. , small breakwater sheltered a lone Portuguese Dreadnought about as large as the Standish. The main beaut - of the place lies in the exquisite contr.-ist between the suft greenness of the meadows and the bold, sharp outlines of the two Volcanoes. . ftcr another day ' s coaling from an . merican collier, we were Jlorta was hopeless. There was nolhing to d.o. and no .ne with life enough to do it if it could ha e been done. The town, so pretty and cleandooking when iewed from the harbor, reminded one of Eastport reduced ten numbers. It wasn ' t W(irth a I .o as to ])ro- viding places of interest, and a 0.5 would be its mark as an amusement lesoit Even 111 )(Iy took ti) the country, which was really beautiful. We walke l miles and miles through most wonderful country — vol- cinoes J)uteh windmills, and pretty fields. The many red and white cuisses on the stone walls along the road advised us of the nece - it} ot leturning- before dark. However, this had bec )me such second nature b - this time that no one ever dreamed of stay- ing (lut latei than half past five. isits were exchanged with the midshipmen of the l ' re_ a, a iniinan esse! on a nine months ' practice cruise. ' e found that ilieir life was just about the same as ours. One of the fiendishly j(i ful moments of the cruise was to see them t)ut at boat drill one njugh UKirning, and tn watch the cutters come by with bo ' th rails manned. They were a fine lot, and by jabbering buth I ' rench and English we got along well with them in the matter of conversation. ( )n the last night of our stay they gave us ;i dinner, at which maii_ - of the First Class were present. The (l(i ern(ir of the Azores held a reception for us I ill that same last night, and a large party took the nine-mile walk to and from the (io -enior ' s Mansion I in . " " itate C ' ir — that is. on a beautiful hill conim,anding a iew I if the whole harlxir. The gang who went had a ery agreeal le time, in spite df the confusion of tongues. To he sure, there was a little faux pas committed by Jack and Cit while returning, when they thoughtlessly kicked a native oflf the sidewalk, but they got out of that with only three D ' s. They always were lucky! We started back to . nierica thoroughly satisfied with our own country, and very p roud iif it Full of the thoughts of leave, of genuine white folks, of w itei nit Ion and ice cream, w e bestuwed no backward glances on 1 aval We had a very snidoth run lidiiie.

It is to be that the under classes may ne -er, in future years, lune to endure what the Cruise of lOlO brought forth in the way of food. I ' .y this time we had accumulated all varieties of pets aboard the ships. A census taken of the Iowa ' s outht undoubtedly gives a fair average. It consisted of two monkeys, one Wop, two cats, one black cat, one ordinary rabbit, one pink rabbit, one starved puppy, two canaries- one without a tail which could sing, and one with a tail which could not sing; three green birds, which resembled parrots Init were not: two white rats, and one brown bird, variety unknown. They atTorded us considerable amusement all the way across. We teased the monkeys, chased the dog and the cats around the deck, poked at the parrots which were not, listened to the canaries and the lirown bird sing, and annoyed the Wdp when he read novels with a pipe in his mouth. We passed through the Capes at seven o ' clock Mon- d ' morning, August 22. . fter a delay while the quar- oniine officers inspected, and an hour at anchor while we transferred the body of Midshipman Landy to the Bagley, we steamed on u]) the Ray. fust at sunset we dropped anchor off our dear old .S,,l,;mon ' - Island. The low green liank-., the murky water, and the score of white houses huddled together on the iMand had ne vv lM,,k ,l mi 1 t.. us. It was America, and we were glad to be home at last. The week we spent at Sol. .men ' s was one of the longest, dullest, .leadest. deadliest weeks we ever sjjent in an} ])ort. The mem- hers of the i... tl)all team were delayed in get- u ii off until they fairly boiled. I ' cw boating parties were allowed at .Solomon ' s. Due to the raging of the calm sea, it was feared that we would cai size if we went out sailing. So we sulked ar. .und day after day at Solomon ' s, wail- ing with a gnawing impatience for that event- ful Tuesday. The days were endless. The nights were infinitcsimally long. It was hut.

And just as abruptly as the cruise of 19LO ended, so this chronicle ends here, standing as a uKjre or less true account of wdiat actually happened. The cruise of lyio had ended. Upon looking back over its memories, we say that it was at once the best and the worst of all our cruises. Its paramount aiKantage was that it wa scagoin ' , something sadly needed after our Crab cruises along the coa t. The heaving liill.iw , the night watches, the constant travel — all were highly beneficial to us in our jn-ofessional train- ing. Then, too, the Day ' s Work, that terror of all previous First l ' las-,e . became even as a welcome diversion to us after our enforced familiarity with its ])eculiar littk graphical features. In particular the cruise bi oadened us. We met new peoples, we saw strange sights, we heard the chatter of strange tongues — a most w I U ome widening of our h i- after the pent-up at- m. -phere of Crabtown ;mi tlK ' r „l,lcn ]ialli almi-- the o.ast frniii New Ijnuloii tn I ' .atli and back again. ' e -aiiit-d new ideas and a better adjustment of (inr own settled opininns. The fascination of travelling was re- vealed to us— the wild beauty of an angry sea, the port to port existence, the kaleidoscopic views one stores away in his memory, and the pleasure in the exchange of experiences and happenings. L ' n ler -ligluh ditterent circumstances the cruise might have proved vastly better. It is to be hoped that the false system of economy in regard to the ([uestion of food may never be attempted again during any succeeding cruise. The Indiana fared passably well, the Massachusetts poorly, and most of the denizens of the Towa left the ship looking like ghosts rather than like seafaring men. futui It is also toll lied that nn lib. gal.iTC.

They carried the illage, tlu-y stormed the " beach They grasped all the prizes within their reach ; They danced with the fair, and fi)Ught the Ijrave, And courted an " anti-watery " grave. They flattered the chaperones, jollied the girls. They begged for photos and sighed for curls. They swore by the moon to be true ahvay, And remembered their vows for almost a day. Then the ships weighed anchor and sailed away In the reddeniii- dawn of another day. For the world is round and the voyage long, . nd we part with a sigh, and meet with a song. So here ' s to the officers, here ' s to the crew. Here ' s to the ships, and the Middies too. May the wind set fair and the sea be right. No mist of doubt to obscure their sight — May no treacherous reef through life a -ail, Vor the Master Pilot will never fail. A Xi:w LiiMKix ( ' , w lULE First Class cruise is the all-important one, those on which we went as under classmen have had their share in the practical education of the L ' lass as " seafarinsr men, " and nin-t not he for- gt)tten. As plebes we were the last class to make that trying or- deal of plebe summer, the cruise on the Severn. Four dilYer- ent cruises she made down the ISay, each time with a new one of the four plebe companies. Who of us can ever forget the dejection and dark depths of despair through which he passed on board that awful hulk? Fresh from the joys of cit life, we soon found that there were to be no yachting trips after all ; the Youngsters quartered aboard did what they c( course, while shoulder to- shoulder with the swarthy sons which we knew not the purpose. Sometimes we almost lost sight of the chapel dome, so far away from the Academy were we, going once even as far as that haven of rest and ice-cream, Solomon ' s Island. After a bunch had accumulated a proper degree of grime — for somehow there never was any water aboard — they were ordered to pack up the thousand and one unnecessary things that only a plebe takes on a cruise, and to stand by to be transferred to the Standish while another and still greener bunch took their ] laces. So for each of us ended our brief plebe cruise, but for all its brevity, the impressions of those sweltei-ins; two or three weeks, wdien we knew not the difference between the cross-trees and the hawsi ' pipes, are still with us. The friendships formed then are still cur most valued recollections of tlii- -.uinnier. -pring of plebe year, we near-youngsters began to realize in a sort of soon to embark on our Youngster cruise.

However, when we reached Hampton Roads the orders changing the itinerary were received, and we were delighted to learn that we were to make the up-coast cruise. We soon had our first experience in the joy of a seaman ' s life — coaling ship — and then had our first real liberty, all hands going over to the Chamberlin for dinner. We felt real bad indeed when we were permit- ted to stay out until eight o ' clock that night. The next Monday we put out to sea, or to see in our case, and contrary to our expectations we found the vasty deep as quiet as a mill-pond. We found our duties as look-outs, leadsmen, and flunkies in general were very necessary to the safety of the ship, and, save for the few ordin- ary and customary busts which have been made ever since Xoah started to navigate, such as report- ing the moon as a lighthouse under way, all went along smoothly.

So, with the proper degree of ennui in our bearing as Second Classmen, we sauntered down to the sea-wall on the morning of embarkation, and watched the struggles of the new Youngsters with their effects. Soon we ' Wre aboard, and after sleeping off the effects of the June Ball nf the night before, found ourselves into the routine of the life on shipboard once more. .As Slcoii,! Cl.i -men we had exi eeteil an easy cruise with little work and lots o.f liberty, but we soon found that we were to be disappointed. Yet we had an unusually enjoyable cnii-e.

The same carnival, same open house to us, and the big ball tendered us made our visit a -ery pleasant one, so that it was with feelings of genuine regret that we saw Bath fade away behind us as we dropped down the pine-bordered Kennebec. We then went up to Bar Harbor, which we found should have l)een named Cold Harbor instead, and for once the Maine moscinilnes did ik it buther us. Leaving Bar Harbor for the first leg of the trip home, we ran int " a Imig swell which caused the ships to assume their natural period of oscillation with lii-li irei|uency. ilu-reby causing nutch iiial de iiicr amongst us. We ran into Newport once more, and just as a farewell atten- tion, once more coaled ship. Then out and down the coast once more for the Virginia Capes, inside of which we ran one starlit night, and thence up to Solomon ' s Island. After basking in the August glare of the Chesapeake sun for a day or so, we all stood by to pass the welcome word, " All hands up anchor " for the last time of the summer, and were soon moored in the Severn once more. Then the ne.xt day dawned, a happy one for us, when we grasi)ed our suit-cases and lit out for our nwn ines and fig trees for one short glorious month, with a firm resolve t.j forget all about the Xavy for this brief blissful period. l-.dit, y ' s Xotc—Tliis is no jokr.

The author gets 50 per cent., the Head of Department 40 per cent., the pu1ilisher 10 per cent. It ' s really very nice for officers i)os essing literary tendencies.

So he has journeyed to the scene of battle, which the Flotel Belvedere, in the city of Baltimore. Everybody is keyed high with enthusiasm. Strange, too, for leave is just about over. No one gives thought to such sordid ideas, however, and smiles play across the countenance of even those whose features are usually as gloomy and solemn as old Charon himself. Every new arrival is hail fellow well met. He is vociferously greeted with cheers, laughs, slaps on the liack, and worlds of good-natured chaff — all of which go to make even the most rhin.) feel actuall}- happy for the nonce. Of course, everyone wants to know how e.er_ iine else enjoyed lea e — a l)roniide which never fails to elicit a most enthusiastic rqdy. Then remarks tly around as h) the joys of life on shore in the Army, with its attendant, etc., etc. The " Girl I Left I ' .ebiud Me " comes in for lots of praise, and all feel forsooth that life is indeed worth living. At last comes the word to " fall in, " the various columns are whipped into shape for the entry march, the doors to the banquet hall are tlirown open, and the strains of the ( la ' - .March are torn oi¥ by Prof. Zimmerman ' s band. Proudly, happily, the Class marches in. ( )d(Is bods and bodkins! What a sight greets the eye! The room resembles a veritable fairy abode. The decorations are splendid — the table setting magnificent — the ensemble extremely artistic. The strains of the Class March cease, the diners take their allotted places, and the fea-t com- mences. Conversation runs riot. Everyone wants to tell everyone else, all at the same time, ju-l liovv it happened, and between the Canape of Caviar, the Lynnhaven Bays, etc., the diners ha e a mouth full of words and good food all at once. Then the various toasts are given by those to whom this task has l:een assigned. Since the toasts do not come till late, it makes little difference wdiether they are funny or not. The speakers create storms of laughter, let them but give the least sign of huinorons intent, tlierebs demonstrating the extreme joviality which prevails about the festive board. About midnight the diners quietly — oh, so 7 ' cry quietly! — flit aw:iy, some with Ih-e extin- .

This damnei CT75 FOREWORD. ifinitesimal meas long- TIIK aiitlinr, in preparing this treatise, feels that it felt want among the under classmen. . , It must be thoroughly understood that the operator need not be brilliant, or exceedingly crafty, but he must possess an average amount of common sense, so that should the Officer- in-Charge put in an appearance, no false move or undue signs of agitation will lead to sus- picions or moral certainties on the part of the inspecting officer. Furthermore no mention is made of tendencies induced when the wind blows from the opposite side of the building The ease with which a window across the hall may be raised, thus causing a strong draft, is already too well-known to the veriest novice. To the Discipline Department this manuscript is affec- tionately dedicated. DEFINITIONS. Tendency: That form of air-current, natural or induced, which, when directed in the proper manner, will completely scavenge a room of smoke. Deflector: Any kind of plane or curved surface, such that when tilted at the proper angle, will be highly instrumenta in directing a tendency. Radiator: That which produces heat. Heat: That form of energy which, when applied, pro- duces the sensation commonly known as heat. Window: That which must be kept open, even in zero weather, thus causing water to freeze, cracking pitcher, and incidentally boosting the profits of the Store. CII. ' VPTER I. In this chapter tendencies will be dealt with when there is no natural means of producing them. In other words, the outside air is perfectly still, the day is calm, and conducive to the O. C. ' s staying in his room, holding down that green Morris chair. good strategic move, and one that is always appreciated, is to have the Officer of the Day place a Police Gazette within arm ' s reach of said chair. It not only insures the O. C. ' s staying in his room, but also puts him in a happy state of mind should he subsequently inspect. However, such details as this are left to the fumoid. The best advice that can be given is to study the O. C. It does not take an intelligent observer long to become familiar with his move- ments, and to arrange the stage-settings accordingly. Axiom I. A First Classman always has a good tendency. Axiom 2. No fear may be entertained when the O. C. is at the ball-game. JIJ - ' ' L Corollary. Nn tendency need be rigged under tliis condition. PROBLEM I. To rig a tendency in winter, no outside air stirring. Construct a deflector — cardboard, about l8 in. by 24 in. answers best. Bend board to shape — a hyperbolic curve gives the best results. This should be placed in the window, concave side inboard, sn that tniigctit to point two inches from the inner edge is liMri Mntal hi tlii iH.-iti iii .ill ni.ward currents of smoke-laden air will be prnjirtid .ait nt " llif uni.l.iw, .1- in I ' ig. i.

N.OW this is the laio of the juiujlc.— Kittling. Now these are the laws of the Navy, Unwritten and varied they be, And he that i-- wise will nliserve them, Going down in ln Awy h the sea; As naught nia ..ulnui the destroyer, Even so with the law and its grip, For the strength of the ship is the Service. And the strength of the Service the ship. Take heed what ye say of your rulers, Be your words spoken softly or plain, Lest a bird of the air tell the matter. And so shall ye hear it again. If ye labour from morn until even. And meet with reproof for your toil, It is well that the gun be humbled, The compressor must check the recoil. On the strength of one link in the cable, Dependeth the might of the chain ; Who knows when thou mayest be tested ? So live that thou bearest the strain. When the ship that is tired returneth. With the signs of the sea showing plain, -Men place her in dock for a season.

Dinner was jnst over, it was Saturday night, and there was no athletic meet to while away the evening. g ■ n . ,.P He rolled a skag, and having lighted it, shifted lazily into his bath-robe " ■ and seated himself at the table. There was lots to be done, but ideas did not flow easily. He leaned back in his chair, and gazed hoiicfully at the ceiling. The door opened, and in came Johnny with a bunch of the Pos- sums. Everyljody rolled one after a careless greeting, and soon the chairs were full about the radiator. Mac came in witli a guitar, fol- lowed shortly by Jack Reeves with a mandolin. I ' etc came in with a scag already lighted. Others came in ]iy twos and threes, and content with the presence of a good company, sub- ided into places about the deck. The conditions were excellent. The Editor lowered his gaze, anil tried to- start something. The musical instruments tinkled softly; the rcxmi was blue with smoke. Xobody seemed to care about liberty, for it was drizzling outside, and rather cold. The low hum of conx-ersation filled the room, broken occasionally by a laugh from the bunch who were baiting the Teddy I ' .ear. The Editor gave the higli sign t o Dick Eield, and that gentleman, coming nobh to the front, coughed loudly to draw attention. -. ay.

Snick lia.l the mi fortune to be one of the party. It was at the American Con- len party in Marseilles, and as you all will remember we had one peach of a time. The buffet in a far away corner was a most pleasant spot, and it was well crowded with midshipmen, an officer squeezing in whenever possible. Snick was there, getting all the pleasure possible out of strawberry glace an.l lettuce sandwiches, glancing with mixed envy and scorn at his m.ire hanlened classmates, who were apparent pleasure .lut of the pale, sparkling stuff " which the g.ari .i inexhaustibly. Just then the liiwa " s joyful navigat midshipman near Snick, ' This is this, " thought Snick, ' surely there ' s n. harm in white ci.ler!

NEW YORK PHILADELPHIA BOSTON CHICAGO You can shoot the Savage Automatic quicker and straighter than any other arm you ever saw, and shoot it with either hand. It gets in the first shot — always the vital one — and follows it up with nine more, as fast as you can pull the trigger. Reloads in a flash. Ten .32 cal. shots, double the number in any ordinary revolver, to each load. Vou waste no time taking aim. You point it straight by instinct, just as you point straight at an object with your forefinger. Accurate. Automatic locking of breech retains all powder gases behind the bullet until bullet leaves barrel. This insures bullet velocity and accuracy. Simple. You need no tools to take it apart. Has fewer parts than any other automatic. Safe. Cannot be fired unless trigger is pulled. Safety locks positively against discharge. Locking of breech prevents fouling. Weight, 19 07,., including magazine. Easily carried — only 6j inches long. Uses standard ammunition. The Savage Automatic has never been entered in any military or other public contest, and no other pistol can truthfully claim to have won against the Savage. On the other hand, the Savage is the only pistol which has the endorsement of the world ' s greatest detec- tives, Wm. A. Pinkerton and Wm. J. Burns, also of the great experts and experienced crack-shots, such as " Buffalo Bill, " Dr. Carver, " Bat " Masterson, etc. Send for " Bat " Masterson ' s book about gun fighters, " The Tenderfoot ' s Turn.
