THLETICS fills a large place in our lives. ln- dividually we indulge in athletics because it is practically the only form of outside recreation which affords us a complete change from stud- ies. Whereas in an ordinary college there are fraternities and glee clubs in which one may find recreation, we have only our gym and athletic fields. ln the time which is our own one finds it a good idea to indulge in exercise, not only to keep himself in physical trim but to get away from the studies which are before our noses so many hours each day. Then also the prestige which belongs to one who is eminently successful in athletics makes excellence in sport a coveted goal, some- thing well worth striving hard to attain. Without our athletic events every Saturday afternoon, life here would be dull indeed. The longest days we experience are Saturdays with nothing going on. Strangers can hardly appreciate how much athletics do mean to us, but we have only to recall the football game to call to mind the fact that the death of a dear friend could scarcely have caused so much gloom as our defeat. Athletics is more to us than anything except our profession. 33 Officers not Htlacbeb to TA.ca6emic Staff Lieut. Comdr. ADOLPHUS ANDREWS, Aid io ihe Superintendent Mr. P. H.

Address on Graduation Leave: 24 Lake St., Le Roy, N. Y. Object: To know all and not be an oiler OME savoir, the prodigy of the class! Sammy is a man of brains and with them a good physique. l-le is eccentric, yes, but his eccentricity is that of genius. Carlyle, Darwin, Macaulay, De Quincy and Kipling take up the little time he has left after making miniature aeroplanes and planning more efficient systems of fire control. This boy never studies, yet he is a near star. When the O. C. found eight alarm clocks on Sammy's book-shelf, and wished to know the why and wherefore, Sammy told him that he set them at twelve o'clock every day and then raced them for 24 hours. I-le said nothing about the sidereal chronometer he made nor the four clocks he made from the works of three old broken sleep dispellers. All four would run, more or less, too. "Wop" enjoys a good joke on a classmate and is ever ready to conjugate a rhyme on some pal. He looks deep into a man's character and is able to differentiate clearly the sincere from the fickle. He has absolutely no use for the companionship of the young femme. On hop nights he finds infinitely more pleasure in analyzing the Scientific American or laughing at Alice in Wonderland than indulging in ragtime exercise. At the piano he is a wonder. He can tickle it like old "Zimmy" himself. But no rags----Trovatore, Faust, Humoresque and such are Sammy's specialties. I As editor-in-chief of the Log he has added much happiness to each midshipman of the Brigade. l-lis energetic and faithful work in getting out a good Log on time each weekideserves the highest commendation. We heartily commend him for his self-sacrifice, unselfish efforts and good results. Sammy, you are brilliant, you are inventive, you are a genius.

It will suffice to say that he dragged fourteen Cumberland beauties to his first june Ball. On his first and second class cruises he was social aid to his shipmates, due to the fact that he had the entree to Bawh Hawbah society and was one of the Newport "Four Hundred and Three." Nevertheless Hugh found time to learn how to roll a Bull skag, develop his chest and go on parties with the fellows. Any time Plebe year, the Angel was ready to preach a sermon to anyone about the waywardness of the Midshipmen. But, alas, during May of his second class year he was heard to say to one of the "Rocking Chair Brigadenz "My, l am all run down. Cigarettes and coffee did it." So much for the superficial. Never will we find a better-hearted and kinder person. He is always ready to help a friend in any way. He is seldom rhino and is at all times planning some larkfeffor instance, calling on a Congressman's daughter or playing Romeo on Hanover street at midnight.

Under the soothing influence of that plebe summer sun, Willie's complexion turned a deliciousicarmine, whereupon Harry Heck promptly dubbed him "Turkey." Harry Heck departed, but the name stuck in all weathers and times.

Turkey has had several narrow escapes: di floored him early youngster year, but after a lot of hard work, the right won out, and Willie emerged triumphant on the conclusion of the semi-anns. First class year, he passed thru trials and tribulations. Even the highest perches in Smoke Hall did not save him from the ravages of a barbarous band, which at Thanksgiving, attempted to pluck him and dress him with cranberry sauce. Then when Turk drew a buzzard as one result of Brigade Order No. 8, it seemed as if the Epa Sopha Dil society would never cease holding forth. Willie's never-failing good humor and willingness 'to help a friend has carried him cheerfully along thus far, and will stand him well in the future. His tired expression is not due to old age, it's simply the result of continuous buffetings in the heavy seas of La Sala de Fumnar. "When l want you, I'll send for you." "Do I owe you anything?"

The qualities of longness and leanness that he still possesses are not what they were when he first joined us, especially the leanness. His case is a good example of what these four years of joyful frolic can do for a man's physical development. 1 Some of his experiences here have not been entirely care-free and pleasant, but he has never been too unhappy to underlie his ever-ready sense of humor. He can see something comical in any situation and can recount a funny incident with much gusto. His unusual stories told in picturesque language with a lingering drawl are the delight of our gathering. As an actor he also has real ability and is a star member of the Masqueraders. At the games Dick entertains the assembled multitude in the capacity of Assistant Cheer Leader. His highest ambition at such times is to lead a "Ray" yell, but he can't seem to get the kinks out of his long arms soon enough to Hnish with the rest. Un the other hand his rendition of the "siren" is without reproach and his services as a comedian are invaluable. Dick's associates can tell you that in spite of his nonchalant exterior he is an efficient man-f one of those numerous exceptions who by real ability give the lie to class standing: and then, too, Pete is essentially a free thinker and apt to disagree with commonly accepted authorities or he might have fooled us in that respect.

If he got unsat, he put a little more into his boning, but at other times, he couldn't see any better use for the evening study period than to turn in. l-le was fond of a smoke once in a while. Desiring a little sea service during academic year, he decided to make a liberty when he wasn't supposed to and got ragged. Then he packed his duds and swung in a hammock for a couple of weeks. All he said was:-ul don't care." With the ladies he is all pie. "He is the clearest, best looking fellow in the world." One little girl came pretty near having a falling out with her best friend because this best friend had six successive dances with Bake. He couldn't help it. But jealousy you know-yes, the girls fight for him. A source of great trouble to Wilder is the drummer. His efforts to keep in stroke seem useless, and so he walks along bobbing up and down. l-le doesn't careg ask him.

Tom thinks he's a "hard guy" and his outward show has probably cost him a few friends. He takes everything that comes along with the same nonchalant, "what's the use?" Second class year he took a two weeks' cruise on the Reina Mercedes, missing Thanksgiving and the Army game, yet rather than rhino he smiled and said he liked it, for it made him "sea-going." just as calmly did he stand on the quarter- deck of the Rhody in Annapolis Roads-all the rest of us on liberty-and watch "the girl up the Severn" circle the ship in the Hswellest little launch you ever did see." On the same cruise at Newport, Tom with the aid of Babe Brown made Boak afraid to make liberties with him. Tom has held down a place on the lacrosse team for three years, and in football his shortness has deprived him of a place on the varsity squad. ln an argument you'll have a hard time getting him to own up to your point of view. More often he'll make you believe that you are entirely wrong, for he can certainly hand out some points on the situation. He argued on the good points of the English Navy and of England for three hours against the whole first class of the Rhode Island-and then wouldn't own up he was wrong. Ask him. The same spirit of unwillingness to be beaten crops out in athletics. To lose a game of tennis means much to him, because you beat him, and the next time you play him, watch out. With that spirit and the shaking off of a slight inclination to be la2y, Tom will make good any- where. ' "Why, you know, it's marvelous, stupendous, magnanimous in its proportions. It startles the universe. Why, just think, two flies a year, enuf to cover the whole world forty-two feet deep. Ye-es." Tom never worried about class standingg a 2.5 satisfied him.

Thus Cap travelled alongg small matters could not dampen his smile. He liked to fuss once in a while and didn't believe in taking chances on anybody. With him seeing was believing, and no "friend of a friend" would be accepted on anybody's recommendation, without the evidence of his own ojos. He and Ping claimed the distinction of having dragged the greatest brick that ever adorned the gym. Other claims lacking, they have been conceded this prominence. Cap had a failing for eats and music and whenever nothing much was going on you could find him in his room with eats on the table and the phonograph running. That was his idea of perfect content. His cheerful pessimism made him greatly liked by his classmates. He was a "good fellow," no matter what the nature of the bunch he was with. He liked to rhino about the condition of affairs, but he did it in such a ludicrous way that it provoked amusement rather than discontent. .

He is a rough-houser of unquestioned ability, hence he was assigned to the arduous duty of taming Madame Hoyt.

Since then he has stuck to his job with commendable grit and persistence and second class year realized a large part of his ambition by gaining a place on the relay team. ln this capacity he showed up as one of the best quarter milers we have ever had. The result of all his efforts in track was his election as captain of the team first class year, an honor well worth much work. But track is not his only hobby. Youngster year when men were considered for the Lucky Bag staff, he was chosen as Bob Cary's running mate to supply the photographs. Many of the pictures contained herein testify to his skill and sacrifice of time to make the book a success. l-lis most prominent characteristic probably is his energetic disposition and willingness to do hard work to accomplish anything which he deems worth while. It is this which has made him so successful in track and made his services so valuable on the Lucky Bag staff. Apart from this he is an agreeable companion, naturally rather witty, altho his wit is a trifie sharp at times. He puts his trust in his own efforts and stands on his own two legs. He does what he thinks is right and then lets the world slide. If the world's judgment is all right, then all right, if all wrong, then all right.

Though he stands well in everything he is 'most at home in math. With the assistance of a log book he can prove that 2 and 2 are five, that black is white and that the world do turn. Turn him loose in the Steam Building and he will make anything you can name, if like Aladdin's lamp you rub him the right way.

The paths he follows are not always the beaten ones laid down in the books but they get there just the same, usually a good deal more directly.

The Sultan's is physical cul- ture. Characteristically he has his own theories and his own courses of training. Something that many of us lack, he has the will power to follow them out. His exercises are taken no matter how cold the morning or how warm the bed. His diets are carried out no matter how tempting Ashbroolis staff may make the menu.

Scrappy has been a consistent toilcr on the class football team for four years. ln fact he is, as his name indicates, athletic in every- thing he does. His extended activities as a member of the special swimming squad and assistant grand marshal of the Hinclers, bear witness to that. His most brilliant exploit from the grand stand Viewpoint was accomplished second class year, when he arose in the dead of night and performed his ablutions and then informally baptized the Officer-in-charge with the soapsuds. His sea going fame harks way back to plebe year when he used to scatter the astonished Upper classmen with a stentorian command, "Gangway, lubbers, for a man of the seal" The authorities have been very considerate of Scrappy since they discovered his re- markable inventive genius, manifested in improved working plans of steam sirens and stop Valves. They failed to decorate him in order to give him more time to devote to the phenomenal development of marine engineering.

Object: Comradeship NOUR first impression of this young man from Tennessee is that of a quiet, dignified student, and he is-until he smiles-then watch out, for no one has ever been known to withstand the combined effect of his smile and dimples. Add to them an expression of cherubic innocence and the picture is complete. Many are the "profs" who have been unsuspectingly led to the "brink" and gracefully dropped over without any suspicion of what was happeningsall on account of that innocent expression. Whenever you meet him with that smile you may rest assured that there is deviltry afoot somewhere. f William came to us after a year at V. M. l. and another at the University of Tennessee. He evidently ab- Sorbed enough knowledge at these institutions to last him his entire career, since he spends his study hours coaxing heat from refrigerating radiators, repairing phonographs and practicing "Stunts" for the gym team on the table. He is never happier than when his "wife" has late lights so that he may get in a little more work. As a Ist P. O. he 'is a model excepting that he keeps his three striper in a constant state of worry trying to "dope" out what "Likker" will do next or When he'll find him at the next formation. Beneath this easy going surface you will find plenty of Character and good practical knowledge--and he can generally help you out on any subject. Hl..ikker" is a man well worth knowing and the better you know him the more you like him. 77 Conrab Tickinson Try Chicago, Illinois "Dick" "Doc" "She has two eyes so soft and brown: Take care!" -ANON.

No matter in what company he is seen he stands out distinctly individual, impressing one with his air of savoir faire, his courteousness, and unruffled serenity. He hails from Chicago, and the Windy City may well be as proud of him as he is proud of it. For Fortune has lavished her favors upon him freely. Without any effort on his part, the best things have always come his way. He is a savoir who never bones except upon rare occasions. But when he does take the trouble to open a book he can completely absorb its contents and .- spiel it out to the awed Prof practically verbatim. A voracious reader, he usually keeps a number of the latest "best sellers" on hand and beguiles many a weary study hour engrossed in this favorite pursuit. He never takes reading seriously, however, and looks with disdain upon the literature that his poet-philosopher-room- mate delights in. Dick is a natural born fusser and never misses an opportunity to drag a queen. Tall, handsome, and debonair, he couldn't be a red mike if he wanted to. The fair ones simply rave over him. He has a most disconcerting habit of rushing a girl steadily for a few weeks or at the most a month or so, and then suddenly dropping her for another. But through it all he has at heart remained loyal to a fair young goddess in Chicago, and never tires of anticipating the great time he is going to have when she comes down. But seriously, Dick is one of the best liked men in the class. He is a greathearted gentle- man, and a loyal friend, and one could not ask for more than that.

Despite this little tip, he has an angelic disposition, according to the Powers, and seldom gleans a It would seem that his greatest pleasure in life is to sit, comfortable in dishabille, surrounded with the bluish haze of a Bull skag, and absorbed in the pages of a book. He deigns not to trip lightly in the Swedish Armory--it's a matter of V record that he never performs for the side lines on Saturday nights. But on the cruises, how that boy do blossom out! He never misses a party and is Consequently widely known up the coast, although there are those who claim greater knowledge of a certain friend of his-daily lavender letters, a miniature -you understand. lt's needless to mention how he staggered the O. D. of the Utah one night by returning from her city many hours late, and stylishly clad in cits. ' Horace never rhinos, not even when below par in nearly every subject, possibly because he knows he has the ability to pull up almost any mark. He will gladly put aside anything to hold his famed Dago class, and is a friend worth while. "Jolly bo" he is known to many, which par- tially explains why his company is so eagerly sought. But he has his serious side, too: he can more than hold his own in any deep discussion: from a criticism on philosophers to the artfulness of Women-particularly the Irish. He also won considerable distinction as an orator one June Week, and is undoubtedly unusually gifted with an agreeable line of twa-twa, for he is said to be "a Charming man." 79 Gilchrist l-eeton, Missouri "Gillie" "He was made of slecl and whaleboncf' -DANA "Already I am worn with carcs and age."

Gillie drove our team and drove it well: he was the man for the job. The first thing that one learns with some surprise about Gillie is that contrary to the case of most of our football men, he stands well up in the class. He has attained this class standing just as he has attained his athletic ability, by constant, persistent, consistent, hard work. He is above all a plodder. Not essentially savvy, he has left many men naturally brighter and naturally better equipt way behind him. He is an excellent example of the man who made good use of his one talent and finds it multiplied by his efforts. He never goes into anything half-heartedly. Hc believes that whatever is worth while putting his time on is worth doing well, and to this his success may be attributed. He goes into anything with the determination to win, and he usually does. Gillie isn't strong on the Mexican athletics, but once in a while he gets started and he has a wealth of novel experiences to dispense which puts the ordinary bull artist quite out of the running. From what has been said, it will be inferred that he is a rather serious-minded chap. He is deep, smiling seldom. He will work hard for any enterprise in which he is interested and the ship he reqs. for will receive a worker, and if he doesn't make his division the best on the ship it will be the Hrst time Gillie has failed in getting the best results out of his material.

His dancing abilities and conversational powers are above the average, and because of these accomplishments he is a lion among the ladiesgespeciallyxof New York and Jamestown. Red shines asa mechanical and inventive genius, and is supremely happy when engaged in repairing or assembling machinery of all kinds-from phonographs to electric toasters, and for Red there's a warm spot in the heart of every Midshipman who was on the Delaware, because of his invention of an electric toasting machine. As to the "Swedish Dances," joe is the "Peerless Leader" and his name and face will be remembered by the Seventh division for some time to come. He has a good, commanding voice and is not afraid to say what he thinks. Of all the rates in the Navy, Red likes the Crescent best, and always manages to stand in with that department. He loves a rough-house and can usually get away with it if he only has one man to handle. He has a good knowledge of human nature, and you can seldom slip anything over on him. If you do, however, give the g0at plenty of room to move about and dive for a safe place yourself. He generally succeeds in getting everything he wants, and has been known to pawn off a broken phonograph spring for a brand new record. During second class year he joined the URazor Stroppers' Union" and struck for several months, but the l. C. S. called him and he has been kept busy ever since preparing himself for a possible job in "cit" life, as consulting engineer in a factory for manufacturing machines for the use of navigators in working out their C. M. T. and D. R. Above all, "Red" is an athlete and a good one, too. Football is his "star" sport, and then C0mes crew, but every ounce of energy is put into the good old game, and he has more than made good. He plays like he works---hard and strong all the time.

As a photographer Molly has few equals. Any time in the spring at 5:00 p. m. he can be seen strolling around the yard with a femme on his right arm Qlst class yearb and a kodak on his left. Therefore, we have "Kodak Kate." ' Kodak Kate has a practical nicety about him of doing things well. l-le can take a perfect meridian altitude sight and work it out for the navigator. l-le can sketch the contents of the radio room and explain them in ten minutes to the second class. l-le is willing to work, but, however, likes his efforts to be appreciated. On first class cruise aboard the "Minny Soto" he wrote out the "Rules of the Road" diagrammatically for R. R. M. His efforts, none better, were highly appreciated, for Molly came back to Bancroft and stared one stripe in the face. He has since then been the happiest man that Texas claims. One thing there is which I wish there wasn't. Molly's eyes are none too good for constant work with the pen and straight edge. This alone has caused him to lose many numbers and many a night of good sleep before the physicals. But good rests now and then, though sacrificing his academic work, have kept him above board, and I5-20's may he ever read to the satisfaction of all. 82 llobn 'franklin Ulloloney Brooklyn, New York --Jack" "1l's nothing againsl you lo fall down flal, Bu! to lic llierc-lhafs disgrace." -ANON.

But .lack never worried. The next month came and went, and again the next month. And Jack's average for the term was a 2.7. No more staying unsat at night. No more burning the candle light. The semi-anns were a pleasure to him. One time l remember jack made a cold four on a sketch of a B. 8: W. boiler. His constant association with Molly undoubtedly was accountable for this tragedy, for good sketching is acknowledged by historians of the cenozoic age to be continuously contagious. At any rate the sketch was a real steel engraving and deserved a perfect mark. It certainly did make the Section glad to see Jack pull down the maximum.

' Object: Not to let anyone run over my friend L, i HE "Wolf's" class history has been anything but smooth. liarly plebe year the vivisectionists discovered oil in his leg and spent eight months mining for it. After that the "Wolf" wore crutches, the prevailing idea now being that in this way he acquired the famous silent shrug with which he terminates his own jokes. Speaking more seriously, the "Wolf" is an exceptional ' being. He is a good football player, as graceful as a forty horse plow, the delightful part of it being the fact that he carries this gridiron easiness with him everywhere. It is particularly noticeable at hops where he is a regular. Tommie is guilty of some queer ones in the section room but he always comes out on top by agreeing precisely with the prof. One of his favorites, after the prof. points out an error in the book, is "Yes, sir! I didn't see how that could be when l read it over." This was always good for a 3.0. The "Wolf" is one of the most straightforward men we know. On the Ohio in l9l2 he established himself in the Admiral's quarters and rejoiced in being the source of good cigars, while On the Arkansas a year later he went to housekeeping in the starboard trimming tank and was proud of being the center of domestic riots. He is a most consistent rough-houser and with the patience of Job would wait all night for a chance to cut a foot rope or tuck a lobster in a hammock. Frank, as the girls call him, is impetuous and emphatic enough to have been a Central American monarch. Nothing pleases him better than to inspire unholy terror in the unsophisti- cated, although he is also very much delighted to find an audience willing to listen to a tedious description of what a damphool the other guy was. But he is always there to stick by and Hght for a friend. "A friend in need is a friend indeed." Tommie is one of them. 85 Ziloscpb Galvin TA.rno'l6 Waynesboro, Pennsylvania "Little Joe" "J.C."

The fate of his commission will be decided after this goes to press: everyone of his classmates is squeezing for him, and hoping he'll get it. After semi-ans, youngster year, Joe had his box packed and baggage at the station bound for home when Brigade order No. 46 came out in time to make him complete his sentence.

Having been an erstwhile editor of the "Blue Ridge Zephyr" he receives many press notices in its columns. One issue contained the following announcement: "lVlr.

For instance "Oh, you see, this is a differential wrench, sir," or "of course, this can be worked the other way, sir, by using the modulus of elasticity and the second derivative." For what we admire Bob most, however, is his unswerving loyalty to honor, truth and justice and to woman. You could not for love or money make him consciously do a thing that bore resemblance to conduct unbecoming a Virginian. Nobody can ask him to utter a word that might hurt the feelings of a woman, no matter how homely or how disagreeable. It is born in him and so his nature naturally rebels against the little things that are reckoned all right in some other places. Bob knows many people. He has many friends in the Academy and many on the Outside. But the best of all, Bob realizes and vows, is his mother.

Note carefully the above portraitg this may be your last opportunity of seeing an example of a rapidly disappearing type. Here is a true son of the soil. Simeon was born some years ago back in the county of Lunenburg, State of Virginia, near the town of Meherrin, and there spent the greater part of his life up to the time he joined us. Having graduated with honors from the Leadbetter High School, our hero began to look about him for a career. For some reason the navy was selected, and up to date the experiment is still underway. Youngster cruise he distinguished himself by asserting that of course the ships would anchor at night on the way over to Queenstown. When asked what they would do if the water were too deep, he replied - - that if they let go the anchors far enuf the water pressure would hold them. This in perfectly good faith! Second class year, he ordered a miniature class ring which immediately disappeared and hasn't been seen or heard of since. He swears he is not engaged, but the evidence, tho circum- stantial, seems against him. Simmie is an ardent fusser and has never been known to miss a hop since his first Farewell Ball. George has a buoyant disposition, if somewhat bovine, and is sure to get along without a great deal of trouble, wherever he be. Easy-going and sunny, he is not hard to get along with, which will probably make him a good messmate. l venture to predict, however, that Simmie will not remain in the Service for many years. The "Back to the Farm" movement finds responsive chords in his soul, and before long l fear we shall see him back in Lunenburg surrounded by herds of cows and little Arvins. 88 'Ilbilip Williamson yeatman Norfolk, Virginia "Phil" "Sis" "Phyllis" "Behold mc, lady, a prisoner and vassal of lhy will." --TENNYSON Hinder Q2nd Co.j: Masqueraders Q4, 3, 25.

A natural conclusion is that he is also a fusser. His propensities along that line are innumerable, and many are the adventures into which they have led him. Most notable among these was the "silk hat" episode of second class year. As one may well suppose, Phil hasn't many worries. He went out for fencing and did well until he lost his grease, then he gave it up without even a sigh. First class cruise he was presented with a month's restriction for some minor offense, but instead of rhinoing he made all the boat trips. As a general rule he is lazy. A book of unusual or weird poems or a rambling account of the court scandal one hundred years ago is all he needs for a full day's amusement. It is not to be understood, however, that he spends all his time living up to his tortoise shell glasses. Quite the C0ntrary. He may be seen at all the tea fights and dances in town, and upon off days one finds ...jg-, ' him sprawled in an armchair drinking tea. Being a Virginian his gallantry is unlimited. This has had the rather unfortunate effect of so arranging matters that one could not say "he always dragged a queen." But his taste in the small matter of femmes is perfect, and when he could drag a queen without hurting the feelings of some lone and sorry brick, he always did so. At the Academy he has performed his duties consistently according to the guidance which is within a man. There is every reason to believe that he will continue to do so when he joins the great Service outside. But no matter how far he may progress, no matter what pinnacles of rank he may attain, one will always be certain of a cheery word and a contagious Smile from Phyllis.

Charles Baltimore Calvert Christopher Columbus John Adams Thomas Jefferson, etc. was enough to make him cry out at the murder of his name. Yet he survived it all and is the better man for it. Physically and mentally he has steadily grown into a giant. A high class standing with a clean conduct record brought him three stripes and the responsibilities of a company commander, which he has performed in a thorough, efficient manner. Rarely fussed as a youngster but second class year he gradually slid off the Red Mike wagon and began to develop into a "Dream Dancer," while first class cruise he was one of the Hrst to visit the Jamestown Casino, and always the first man ashore. He has a happy faculty of getting the other fellow to drag his Maryland Queens while he escorts someone else. Senator Hale swears that he is a diplomat along this line. His line of conversation in the section room so impresses all profs that they usually give him a 3.6 or better before he has half finished reciting. This is true whether the conversation happens in English or Spanish. Though somewhat inclined to be fussy about small matters and to get all the little details no matter how unimportant the subject may be, he is truly conscientious and earnest.

He was willingly taken on board the l9l4 and has been taken good care of ever since. He 'hails from the wilcls of Wyoming, and had fierce, hair-raising tales to tell us plebes before he went on sick leave. He has seen much of the western life and his tanned skin, straight black hair, high cheek bones and square jaw give him much the appearance of a Sioux Indian in disguise. "Biff's" smile approaches to the "won't come off" variety: his mouth is wide and spacious, almost equaling in size that of "Rhino" at the Bronx Zoo. When he lets out a Sioux siren your heart stops beating, paralyzed with fear, and you make a dive for the first opening that pre- sents itself, being careful, however, not to jump down his throat. He acquired the name of "Turk," after having been ragged "hazing" youngster year. With all hope of ever remaining in the outfit gone, he and "Tessie" solemnly decided to ship over in the Turkish Navy, and reorganize the fallen government of the Sultan. A happy change in the outlook occurred, however, when the investigation was over, and they both decided to remain where 3 "squares" and a place to sleep were assured. He has never had to work very much to get that illusive 2.5 all the wooden men have seen and have looked up to sometimes, and his greatest task, probably, has been that of keeping Bingo quieted down. He has made good as a rifle shot, and was elected manager of the rifle team. He, also received all the honors there were to receive out of Soccer, and would probably have made the big team had there been one to make. He has an easy, sea-going swing from side to side that characterizes him and which shows that he is not the kind of a man that worries, but, instead, is a jolly, good-naturecl chap who is ready for fun and a good time whenever they are ready for him. It is this good nature that has won for him a place in the hearts of his classmates, and we will all follow "Biff's" career with interest, whether it be in or out of the service, sincerely hoping, however, that he will stay with us to the vcry end. 92 Stanley'iivingston wilson Prescott, Arizona "Pud'n Head" "Bingo" "l've held of twenty Mexicans, and never turned afcathcrf' -IRWIN "On Pablo Creek I guess that I am quite a guyg suficient with my .44--don't need no automatic."

He is- never so happy as when hinting at some deed of darkness, or surreptitiously "catching one." This astonishing man sneaks up furtively, and, after glancing hurriedly to right and left, asks in an awed voice, "I-low's it to give me one?"-the pronoun "one" accompanied by gestures suggestive of secrecy and caution. Pale not, gentle reader. Bingo is not in search of vitriol or a K ' bomb, but merely a match, or a sack of bull. Such is the nature of the bird. Born in Massachusetts, Wilson is a true son of the old Bay State, and has only recently eradicated the last traces of a perfect Bostonese accent. lncidentally, he claims Arizona as his Mother State, and sees red if Massachusetts is mentioned in his presence. Lord Nelson is quite susceptible to feminine charms, and is generally to be found in love When nowhere else. During lst Class cruise, letters postmarked from a small Virginia town were eagerly awaited. Speaking of love, ask Bingo about his affair with the "Girl in Havana," 'tf' -a most remarkable tale. But if you can pull Bingo away from his Emerson, make him forget Arizona, and cause him to pipe down about his latest flame, you will find an agreeable companion, and a good friend.

You never see much of Jack or hear him make much noise. He goes about his own business without much fuss. Not being a big fellow, his work in athletics has been limited, but still he had the proper spirit and went out for what he could. As a result, he wears the class numerals for lacrosse. He has stood the attacks of the different departments without much boning. Though not what you might call a savoir, still he got along without much hard work. For three years, it was he who kept Pat from becoming a Ucasualtyf' . His chief occupation has been fussing and no hop was complete unless he was on the floor with an Annapolitan or New Yorker.

He carries true affidavits as to their looks, accomplishments, and previous con- dition of servitude. Ordinarily you would not think this Texan was there with the ladies. But, gentlemen, he is there-and with a line that few fussers can touch. At home Crabbo is quiet and unruffled. Kindness and a good heart make him pleasant company in all crowds. He will never believe a bad thing about anybody until he has absolutely convincing dope. Then, what he believes, he keeps to himself. In this novel way, he becomes a good and true friend and a very interesting companion. And . when he takes his usual three minutes in saying "Hello, Bill," you know in a trice that he hails from the Southland and has all the good qualities and none of the bad, which are generally attributed to southlanders. When he is in a very big hurry, all the girls upon First meeting him cry in tones of rapture: "Why, Mr. lVlcCown--l just know that you are from the South!" And Mac eagerly questions back, with a big old Texas smile and a happy twinkling of the eye, which betrays his innocence-"How-ow-ow's tha-aa-at?"

Birdy Bird and Scorpionis: Choir CZ, U. Address on Graduation Leave: Milwaukee, Wis. Object: To have my way UGUST, handsome, dapper, savvy, musical, and a bit .incon- siderate. This is Herbert. He loves to have his own way, gets just a bit peeved when anyone crosses him in his ideas, plans and assertions, and is likely to pull himself up onto a higher plane than the rest of the surrounding humanity and look down upon them with much disdain. He showed himself to be an efficient man, plebe year, and led his class in that department, but since then he has had trouble convincing his superiors that his efficiency is of the 3.4 calibre. Fussing and music come first in his life. His ability to succeed as a fusser is rather questionable, and he has had a rough time of it during his Academic career, all on account of his desire to feel that he has the fair sex under absolute control. ,Iohn's musical talent takes him into the field of the violin, organ and piano, and the fact that he is a self-taught musician makes his record wonderful indeed and one which Paderewski might well be proud to hold. john also thinks the same. "Herbert" loves the opera, with its great singers and its heavy musical numbers and when approached on the subject of the lighter, more frivolous type of show says: "I'll none of it," pre- ferring to leave those productions for the more simple minds to feast upon. He swears by O'Sullivan's rubber heels, claiming for them all that O'Sullivan himself doesg thus it was that his pet name of "Gum Shoe" was attached to his collection of appendages. ' His great faults are that he thinks he is always right and cannot be convinced, and that he must have his own way. If he could overcome these, you would have a man who would be copied everywhere he went and would be very hard to equal. He is good at heart, willing to do anything for a friend and has proved himself to be a good shipmate. 97 r f55cnja1ninTI'l'.'jJagc Sandpoint, Idaho "Benny" "Andl1is face lil up with a smile of joy As an angel dream passed o'er him."

Object: To raise the standard of "Goo:hay," Baltimore, Md. ENNY is an easy going, good-natured, wide-eyed lad, with a high standard of morals and with a sunny disposition which is seldom seen behind the clouds. Whenever anyone suggests the state of Idaho for a topic of conversation, our little westerner brightens up and begins a minute description of every square mile of territory within the limits of his native state, describing his hunting and fishing expeditions with Brother Hardy in and around the Coeur D'Alene Mountains when on leave, and it is a practical impossibility to get a word in edgewise until he fully exhausts himself. Upon all subjects of conversation Benny advances his own personal theory, the sum and substance of all his theories being centered at or about the oasis of the desert of all America-Sandpoint. At the Academy his favorite sport is Lacrosse, his playing and generalship having ac- quired for him the honor of Captain of his class team. Soccer also keeps him busy between football and Lacrosse seasons, and he is a good player at this game, too. Besides his athletic accomplishments Benny is also a heavy fusser. He always drags, and has, therefore, acquired the hobble walk. He has trouble in keeping ahead of the phantom 2.5, but he has always had the good luck to come out on top with a safe margin. Dago has always given him trouble, and when he attempts Spanish conversation his various and sundry sounds remind one 'of a one-cylinder car going up grade. He is bright and vivacious, never smokes, likes backgammon and checkers as pastime games and loves those who love Idaho. Temperate in everything he does, constant and devoted to his friends and a unique fusser! 98 :Robert Calbwell Starkey Roodhouse, lllinois "Red" "Rojo" "Let us rest under the shade of lhc trees." -AJACKSON Hinder C7th Cojg Assistant Manager of the Lacrosse Team QZDQ Lacrosse Team Q2, ID: LN T5 Illinois.

In fact, we believe that he never possessed such an animal. Happy-go-lucky as the day is long. He takes life as it comes, asks no favors and never kicks about his luck. He has lived for four years with Ben Page by poking fun at him, and by taking up all Ben's rash bets, offered at IO to l. He has been one of the star members of the third company since those far off days of plebe summer. His popular- ity in the class is shown by his election to the managership of the Lacrosse team. Yet he had to relinquish that position, because he played so well that he got his LNT. Was never known to grease, even when unsat. fand that is his habitual conditionl. Yet he took the foreign cruise on the Illinois, and that means he stands high in "grease" Fusses occasionally, and then he has a queen. When he doesn't drag, he is down on the stag line,-part of the time, for his card is usually full. Everybody likes Rojo. Wherever he is, there is something doing. He leaves a wake of fun behind him. Generous as can be! Go into his room some evening with: "Say, Rojo, how is it for an apple?" "All right, help yourself." And so it goes. Always ready to divide his Christmas box with the whole company, or give away his last apple. Never does he criticise EI classmate and never does he say things behind one's back. Nor does he ever go back on a fellow. And as these are the essentials of true friendship, he has numbers of friends all through the class. "Be true, my love, be true," chorus by Starkey and Bower.

Bill and the Surgeon General have had many con- fidential chats as to the relative volume of sound produced by Ingersoll watches and compressed air forges. We won, that is ,sg Bill stayed with us. Bill's grafting ability is little appreciated even by his intimates because of the, admirable secrecy with which he works, but those who know him attribute his infalli- ble pull to the magic of his smile. If you have never seen a real Kentucky sunburst it will pay you to visit Bill. The combined efforts of the Rocking Chair Brigade and the Bull Moose Club have absolutely failed to affect his cheery mien. I Bill is a fusser of more than ordinary ability. Perhaps this may be attributed to the fact that he sends all of his girl friends the pink type of hop tickets. As a friend Bill is absolutely the best in the business. The old adage about a friend in need was written originally about him. He is ready at any hour of the day or night to put himself at the services of friend or stranger as the case may be. Bill isn't exactly a boy navigator, nor is he a treeless waste, but he is right there on the gilt lace proposition and has good horse sense without being in the least racy.

A Object: A pun and a laugh INGO, here is a man who has more good, original ideas and suggestions than any other two men in the class put together. His supply of common sense is unlimited, and is usually, though not always, put in use. He is at the pinnacle of happiness when mixed up in a hot argument, and "girls" is usually the much discussed subject. His fussing qualities are unique. He never misses a hop, seldom drags the same girl twice, invariably falls violently in love with each fair maid he drags, and his love bug keeps him continually in a feverish state of excitement. He is one of the savviest men in the class, seldom bones, and is usually to be found reading the Blue Book or the "Cosmo." He peruses the pages of Tennyson when his love fits are on and finds therein rich food for his love-wrecked brain. Besides these more important accomplishments Tessie is a musician. His favorite instrument is the Harmonica and his choice selections are "You're in the Navy Now," and "Traumerei." Enthusiasm on the part of his audiences is negative, however. He is a great Smoker, and about the only man in the Academy who can smoke three cigars in a row without feeling any ill effects. He bucked up against the discipline department youngster year and instead of getting two stripes he received a much more humble billet. As a writer he brought home the Blue Ribbon by having one of his attempts published in the Annapolis Capital dur- ing his candidate days. His writing is smooth and sparking with wit. He is as good-hearted as the day is long, and is a good ship-mate, keeping up the spirits of the others by his trite and witty remarks. He is usually correct in his views on any subject of discussion and has strength of will to put his ideas to the test. "Say, Nunc, who yuh draggin'."

And two hundred beautiful necks are turned in the direction of the Hancock grenadier. He got a certificate from his High School, worked a year in journalism and then concluded that it wouIdn't be amiss to crack a 3.9 on the entrance exams to the Naval Academy. He sauntered into the Senior Assistant's office with Luker and Martin and had his number taken as 377. Big head, fool laugh and an indifferent attitude is the make-up of this nonchalant from Michigan. The head is full of the right kind of stuff, the laugh takes at Cambridge, and so what do we care about the attitude? But the attitude, well, we must have it. So here it goes! He would just as soon go to a 5-cent "movey" by himself as to attend a Tango Party with a queen. Three stripes look as well to him as a cleansleeve. Playing third base on the class team or stealing third base when the bases are full approaches to him the acme of happiness and security. And he can tell the difference between "My Rosary, My Rosary" and "The Course of True Love Never Runs Smooth." Ask Captain Stecher! Donald Royce has a clear brain and a witty soul. He laughs almost as much as he talks, and the only words a listener can ever wedge in when once he gets started are: "Quite so, quite so!"

First, a smouldering coal in the eyes of our Captain and K --ff' Navigator, but in one day the love light grew into a glowing flame that in its sudden splendor scorched the poor Captain's nose. For days this youth mooned and mooned. He became so absorbed in deep contemplation that Pennoyer had to rescue him from drowning off Tolchester Beach. More of this? There was. Yes, a celebration in the little log room of the Maryland Grill. Stech furnished the Mum's Extra Dry: Martin, the Club sandwichesg Poodles, the Pall Malls: Bill Heard, the Martinisg Bill Teasley, the entertainment: and Don Royce, the laughter, talk and tip. Another instance of the Captain's fall is related by Sir Alfred Teasley. It is alleged that the Captain so far forgot himself one afternoon as to give William his last 34.50 with which to make E1 trip to Baltimore to see his own girl. V Stech, however, when all is said, is hard to beat. His heart is as big as his hands, his soul is sincere and his mind is on one subject. He is a wonderful machinist. Boolack, so originated from its striking similarity to Roodack, is a power on the mat. He wrestles in almost every weight and comes out on top every time. His fingers and toes are specially fitted for wrestling, and he wrestles in many ways. His main style is stickability. Never downed to remain downed.

Bob doesn't know these and, furthermore, doesn't care to know them. He does know how to, handle men as evidenced by his superb work as "ratey" three-striper plebe summer. The Commandant congratulated him most heartily on his leadership by a trip to Philadelphia. Bob knows the common sense thing to do under all circumstances and does it.

"Skip," we owe much, yes, very much of it to you. But there are two sides to every question. Though a stern business man, the Skipper, a veteran dyed-in-the-wool fusser, is one of the best fellows on earth. Philadelphia, Washington, New York, yea, even Kansas City will vouch for this.

V His genial smile and pleasant disposition have won him a place in the hearts of all of us. His cheerfulness is contagious, and it would have to be a catastrophe indeed that would erase that smile. Indeed, this optimis- tic disposition strikes one as his most prominent characteristic. Nothing has ever been known to disturb it-not even work fthough that disturbs him verylittle at any timej. Accompanying his cheerfulness is a full knowl- edge of the latest dope, and the German is one of the most inveterate of the emotion-agitators in the class. You can find out almost anything in the line of dope from Dutch. Hernie has also a penchant for parties. After he and Bob began to room together, never a holiday escaped but was properly celebrated in their sanctum. The feasts, however, were not confined to holidays, and never a hop slipped away but that after- wards there were not gathered a choice coterie of famishecl victims of the dance. He and Bob had a regular harem fixed up during second class year, and their room was famous throughout the battalion for scented notes and stationery of all colors. No-they weren't exactly business letters, but they seemed just as interesting as though they were. Hernie's main source of worry was the answering of those letters. Although he tried often to obtain a social secretary, he never succeeded in locating one who was willing to assume the responsible position and who was at the Same time responsible enough to assume it. His cheeks have been the despair of every girl who ever saw him. They have come out unscathed from their exposure to the merciless shots of fiendish lacrosse wielders-being therein more fortunate than his beautiful blue eyes. The German is a rather savvy man and is eminently practical-the sort of man who is sure to Drove of value to the service. But what we shall remember him by is his cheerfulness and for it, if nothing else, we shall be glad to have him for a brother ofhcer as we have been glad. to have him for a classmate.

Very seldom he smokes a cigarette, U and l have never seen him take a drink. And in our opinion God doesn't make better men. Second Class year in a gymnasium meet he failed twice in succession to do the cut-off on the rings, thereby nearly breaking his neck. The third time did he give it up as a bad job? No, he tried again and he succeeded. A more thunderous applause from the Brigade has never been given to any Midshipman. This is not all. ln calculus he had a l.9 one month and a 2.0 the next. He was also "unsat" in Skinny. Did he give up? No, he burned late lights and arose at5:30 in the morning. And through his perseverance and stickability he is still with us, and you bet, he is not anchor man. Another bright instance of his stick-to-'em-all-the-time is his winning a place on the 'varsity football squad lst class year and holding it. As Skipper of the Robert Center on her famous cruise to Cambridge he showed us that he had the blood of the old-timers in his veins. Every time we got underway or came to anchor his lst Class crew sang out: "Pab, what do you want us to do?" It was ever thus. Our class can boast of many sailors, but we cannot boast of a better one than Pablo. Friendship is a big thing to him. He values a friend as a brother and will do anything for one, even to laying down his life. He is sincere, doubts no one, and likes everyone to have a smile on his face. Consequently he is liked by everyone. And Pablo, God knows we'll do any- thing for you. IO6 TJbco6orc'iDavis53.u66ock,2lr T Charleston, South Carolina "T.D."

What wonder that he knew how to sail a boat, what wonder that he knew how to swim a stroke! Knowing these two things, he soon learned to say "Devil" and then to smoke cigarettes. l-low dreadful, Theodore! Smoking cigarettes! Catching a skag as a plebe is a most scandalous outrage if one would judge by the regs. However: in spite of these demoralizing influences Rudack can nail a 3.5 at short intervals and he l.i Q can shoot a rifle as the rifle was made to be shot. He can play soccer like a Jack Kates and between halves converse in heroic tones on any subject at all with girls. Did you get me? Girls! Talk with this youth is as much second nature as kicking is to a mule and he uses no more discrimination in his choice of objects than aforesaid quadruped. He will talk to anything equipped with ears, whether it have tongue or not. Tell him a tooth-puller and he's bound to say, "l heard one better than that." And then some episode relative to a trip in a fishing smack around James' Island. Tell him about dancing at Newport and he will invariably detonate with: "You oughta seen me." Tell him a lie about your gun crew, and the reaction will give you a minute history of his three cruises if you don't turn him off. And so it is. Those of us who are somewhat slow of speech marvel at him: those of us who think we can talk, take off our hats and gently but firmly close our mouths when T.

Harry came to us as the Pride of St. Johns, where he achieved greatness by inventing a marvelous new form of gunpowder. Many nations offered fabulous sums to be let ' . ' ' in on the secret, but with much strength of will and patriotism, he finally decided to give himself and his greatness to the Navy. For two years our hero attempted to dazzle the instructors with the higher mathematics which he absorbed at St. Johns, with the result that on Youngster Semi-Anns, Beauty thought his naval career ended, and, by skillful pull on official strings, succeeded in landing a commission in the local Police force. But Congress intervened and Handsome had to resign said commission. He is an athlete of no mean ability, being welter-weight champion of the Navy in wrestling. He never fails to sport his sword belt at the hops, as he firmly believes in duty, and likes to give the ladies a treat. On the cruises he shines, to put it mildly. No place is too good for him, be it'Spanish town, Buckroe Beach or Bristol. Old Colonel Cheesman of Bristol says that Harry is one of the finest fellows he knows. The Colonel speaks the whole truth, for nowhere have we come across a better fellow than C. T. Cladden.

By trade Sir lsaac is a bricklayer on Saturdays and Sundays: at other times he plods along at a pace which is landing him near the head of the class. Senator is a constant reader of the classics and a deep thinker. No question can confront him without being fully investigated, be it a question of fortifying the Canal, erecting . . , mammoth radio stations at the Navy Yards or dragging a cousin of his roommate's sister's best friend. Cheerful and bright in the morning, a good word at noon and a stellar disposition at night are some of One-E.ye's traits. He is ever ready at any time to play a game of hand ball or tennis and ever ready to demonstrate Professor Bell's correct and approved methods of dancing. Yes, verily has our Senator so distinguished himself in this line that he has invented and monopolized a special dance of his own-the Johnson City Flip-Flop.

One of the few times he was ever known to be peeved was when an unsympathetic M. C. reproached him for singing during study hours. Tom's greatest achievement has been the keeping of Poodles from the snares of the tempters. He has cared for him faithfully ever since plebe semi-anns, and that's saying a great deal for any man. Many was the time, during youngster year, that the corridor would be startled to hear Poodles yelling in dire distress for "Tomi Tom!"---And he never yelled in vain, for in no time at all the optimist would come tearing out of his room to the rescue of his erring wife. As time wore on Poodles began to subside, and Tom with his southern ardor for excitement and adventure turned to flirting violently with Milady Nick O'Tene and became one of her most consistent suitors in the fourth company smoking parlor. He had one other weakness, though, and that was a most peculiar susceptibility to the fascinations of good things to eat. "The way to a man's heart leads through his stomach," and the way to Tom's heart is a regular boulevard Qtake notice, ladiesj.

Plebe year, the favorite pastime of the third deck plebes was to lead out his goat, a goat that didn't need much inducement. Youngster year also the animal was frequently brought out to pasture, but before long, even calling him "Rabbi" failed to produce the quadruped and he laughed harshly and with scorn when Tom rendered for his benefit that time honored ballad, "Rosie, the Cowboy Jew."

Q Rhino is Rosie's most prominent characteristics-not pessimism, -- just cheerful disgust with everything in general and anything in particular.

Ever since the early days of Plebedom, Rosie 'has lived with Adrian Raphael, in connubial happiness.

This is not because we shall say anything he would not like printed, for we venture to say there's not a man in l9l4 who would say anything disparaging of our Editor. There's not a man in the class who has more friends among his class- mates than he, and no one who rates more. But this isn't a eulogy: it's a biography, and being such, one must say something of the subject's character. Charlie's most striking characteristic is his congeniality. One cannot know him five minutes without being as much at ease with him as if he were an old chum. His education enables him to speak with anyone, no matter what their age, sex, or vocation, with perfect familiarity. This versatility in his conversation, however, is not accompanied by any fickleness in his convictions. When he decides a thing is right, he adheres to his convictions in the matter even though his inclinations may be the other way. His really courtly manner makes him as popular with the ladies as with his classmates. The phrase "a Southern gentleman" will always calllforth in our mind Savvy's image.

He has a most disconcerting way of squelching opponents with real statis- tics, obtained from no one knows where but always at hand, nevertheless, to serve the "l'm right, you're wrong" purpose. His method of arguing is characteristic of his efforts in everything he does. He will stick to a point until there's no point left, just as he will stick to his side of an argument until there is no other side remaining. All in all, Wob is a combination of traits that make him an agreeable, welcome and interesting companion,-a man who is certain of making good in the service. He is deservedly popular and is just the kind of a man to keep the friends he so easily makes. "Say, we forgot to put any indicator in!"

Never wastes many words on useless gossip, but always enjoys a few minutes with the boys in Smoke Hall. Like many others we know little of what happened to him before he joined us, but we can safely say his days weren't spent idly, and he could tell you of things that you would little expect to hear. Those days were Hlled with things that count and made him the man he is now. The ship that he goes to will have one who can do things. He has known what it means to be unsat and adorn the trees but he calmly takes hold and is soon in smooth water again. Not that Scotty is wooden by any means, for he has, as you will find, a very creditable standing. He does his studies, as he does everything else, in a good honest, sincere manner and, as in every- thing else, wins out. Athletics never interested him very much, altho he is in charge of most of the indoor sports and wears a fourteen cross oar and several numerals. It must not be forgotten that Scotty has certain charms which win the ladies to him. Neither must it be forgotten that during his course several ladies seem to have had charms which were not unnoticed by Scotty. Hcrc's wishing that we all might be able to be shipmatcs with Scotty.

His heart almost remained in Newport, and during his stay there he became agonized every evening on leaving his Pauline. Luckily for us he escaped, although we were not so sure he had escaped until this year, when his Pauline's engagement was announced in the "Evening Capital."

If he was intended for the Navy, it was as Secnav., but Earl fooled the spirit in charge of his destiny by entering with us in the warm days of l9l0. The impression he makes is that of a "good fellow." He has a level head in everything, he is a good mixer, a good talker, and always laughs at the right time.

E Boak's greatest accomplishment during his four years here has been to take care of Babe. It makes one shudder to think what would have happened to him if Earl hadn't been ever at his side to tell him what to do next. Those who are best acquainted with the facts of the case maintain that Babe would have turned in after coming up from breakfast if Boak had told him sick call was taps. Boak also made himself famous first class cruise as a boat: ofhcer during our weeks in Newport. His greatest source of pride, next to the fact that he has steered Babe successfully across all the rivers until now there's "no more rivers to cross," is he has never done anything to make himself particularly conspicuous or famous. He has a place in the hearts of all his classmates, and that after all is worth more than ephemeral prominence. l3Z filobn Tlferbert Brown, Tilt.

If you doubt the truth of all you read, ask anyone in the class-he'll tell you. There isn't one of us but can see Babe breaking up a whole line or hiking down under punts or kicking field goals for us. But Babe's at his best with a gang. For four years he has roomed with Boak and Boak has been his mainstay. Boak tells him when it's time to go to formation, when it's time to turn in, when reveille has busted, when to put the laundry in the corridor, when to sign the lists, every- thing. In short without Boak there could have been no Brown. Babe can remember what's going on now, but to-morrow never gets to him. Class standing will show Babe wooden for the simple reason that he would not bone. His theory was to let things slip along till the exams came around, then trying to haul down a sat mark. And you'll see he managed to do it-some of us couldn't, but Babe possessed a remarkable knack for remembering facts-once you get them into his head. But in oral recitations his characteristic stroking of his chin means something- a 2.5 if he has nothing right. First class cruise Babe showed that he had the ability for making a good officer. ln the combination Brown and Bower versus Boak, Brown was the chief strength. Anyone can make a good liberty with Babeffhe's a man you're bound to get along with, and after you get used to his habit of forgetting things you will appreciate him much better. So many honors, one might imagine would tend to make Babe conceited. If anyone has a right to be proud of his honors, Babe has. But that's all you'll find in himga just pride.

Like several others he is generally unsat., but this is a minor detail, as the exams always find him sat by a hair's breadth. He has always had a reputation for dragging attractive maidens, whom he easily captures with his smile, for his face and figure are of the kind that break hearts without so much as half a try. His heart affairs are always swift and furious, but never of long duration. We need not worry that he will soon desert us for another, for actions speak for themselves. Yet again there is doubt. "Fitz's" one big fault is a whining tone he assumes now and then. What this is for, no one can tell. "Dinger, show me how t' do this prob, will y'u?" "Roll-me-a-cigarette, please, Dutch?"

As a consequence of this he sometimes says some rather foolish things. He is inclined, more or less, to shirk his proper amount of responsibility, and this is a trait which frequently crops out--as on first class cruise, for instance, when he persisted in delegating the duty of leading Swedish dances to the other first classmen. But Snooks can throw a pretty good bluff in class room, and when he bends those fascinating orbs upon some helpless prof and twists the corner of his mouth into an alluring smile4"there's nothing to it"-the marks just roll out of his helpless victim's hands.

He displayed early piscatorial tendencies by passing his plebe summer swimming test as soon as possible after his entrance in order that he might thereafter cross the river and gambol with the jelly fish which were pay- ing a passing visit to these parts. These exercises so developed a stroke which was already good, that the arrival of the swimming season found him secure in a berth on the team. Since then he has been winning the distance races regularly, has easily taken the class championship each year, and as captain first class year he did much to give this sport a stronger standing in the Academy and succeeded in imparting to it a momentum which should carry it for years to come. . "Tubby" is what the girls call him. He is fundamentally a practical man and is inclined to believe that much of the time that we spend in theory is wasted. Consequently, he often spends that time otherwise. However, he generally keeps down to earth and although he is seen occa- sionally up where the birds build their nests and the squirrels play, he has always found it an easy matter to climb down again before the high winds of February or june could come to shake him from his risky perch. He is one of those people, often considered unfortunate, who could not look like anyone else or walk like anyone else if they tried. Hence, he gets ragged for everything if there is an O. C. or a jimmy Leg in sight. His gait is an easy but energetic swing, with just enough of the roll so that on leave hotel clerks give him Navy rates without question.

So he has been known to write two boards full on a subject he knew absolutely nothing about, and, gentle reader, got away with it. He reaches carefully with his right hand for the left side of his head, and while thus massaging his scalp propounds the following, "However, be that as it may," etc. He then about faces and starts rapidly for his seat. If perchance the instructor has the temerity to question any of his work, Bob halts with such an aggrieved air, that the prof. lets him go, feeling that theremust be some reason for Bob's indignation. Bob possesses one of the largest and best working "greases" around these parts. And it is simply because he is a good man. A dependable man, an efficient man, in short an all around man. If Hayler gets an order to do anything, it is going to be accomplished' if the Heavens fall. And that sort of a man will make good anywhere, and especially in a military service. One may be inclined to think that these are too strong words in praise of such an animal as a midshipman, but Hayler rates all of it and more. And the coming years will demonstrate that little Bob Hayler has the stuff of a man in him.

We soon learned, however, that here was a man who neither desired, nor permitted, boosting from any source: and we can all bear witness that whatever Jonas has accomplished has been by his own persistent efforts. In football and crew, Jonas has done excellent work. Cross oars from the plebe and varsity crews, with its captaincy this year, tell the story of his success on the water. The history of his work on the gridiron is less easily told. Due to frequent shifts in his position, there was always, during the first three years, someone a little more experienced, or a little heavier, to eclipse him in time for The Came. But his struggle with Mammy Weems for center: his spectacular A playing at half-back Second Class year: and his work in this year's game will make his football career long to be remembered. He played end on the best line in the Country,-the line of Our Team this year. Underway, Jonas walks like jack the Giant Killer in his seven league boots: and he shows off snappily every time he touches a high place, producing a rhythmical gait which indicates in every motion a great amount of energy behind it, waiting a chance to escape. His features possess an individuality which, aided by his heavy beard, led one young lady into error. On hearing him called "Homer," her face brightened and she remarked to her escort, ul knew he looked like someone in Ancient History." A true exponent of the strenuous life, he is never languid, and seldom still: if he hasn't Something to occupy his mind, he's going to start a rough-house, or lead forth someone's goat.

Object: Evolution without revolution OU have before you one of the Academy's foremost athletes, though he lacks the fierce appearance which is so associated in the common mind with the "big guys" in athletics. Honestly, this man wouldn't hurt a kitten and "stands for" all sorts of foolishness from men smaller than himself. He is the butt of jokes without number and 'most anybody can run him. He is bashful-very much so. It seems queer to behold a great big man who tips the scales at 220 pounds whois as bashful as a maiden of sixteen winters. And yet George has a most peculiar sang froid under circumstances which would be rather trying to most men of retiring dispositions. For instance,Aone day the varsity football squad was impatiently waiting for Howe so they could begin scrimmage while our blase young giant carelessly sought his head-guard. Finding it at last, he nonchalantly placed it upon his queer cranium, and then with a coy smile turned to the scrubs and anxiously asked "How does this look?" How that varsity did explode! When Howe gets greatly stirred, he uses strong language-almost--generally emitting such ear-shocking exple- tives as "By Gee" "Sugar" "Fifties" etc. He claims to be very religious and for a long while he had us altogether bluffed into the idea that he was, but of late we are beginning to have our suspicions. At any rate, his sense of humor has lately proved much too strong for his moral fastidiousness. George has lots of troubles these days. He was a red mike for a while but when he did fall, he struck with a thud and has become one of the worst "soshes" in the class. Then he has his worries with those who are always trying to devise amusement at his expense. And he has certain other sources of anxiety, too--if you don't believe it, inquire into the health of his coccyx. But in spite of his worries, Monty Nichols caught him turkey trotting once! ln Nav.-"Yes, sir.

ICK is a care-free lad from the old Palmetto state, a good all round athlete, and is possessor of a jaw that sags heavily on his chest-a jaw that would turn a pelican green with envy. If it were not for a happy expression and a smile which, altho one-sided. is wonderfully winning, one would almost be tempted to call him ugly. He has been trying ever since early childhood to use the port side of his face for talking and laughing purposes, but it's no use,-one cannot appreciate his facial expression from his left side,-only his eyes, which are so full of fun and genial good humor that they charm all who meet him. He just can't figure out why the girls all pester him to death. But "Where is my Nick?" "I want my Nick," and similar expressions heard at hops attest his popularity with the fairer sex. He can dance like a perfect dream, will keep you howling all the time and is pretty well practiced in the art of fussing, so why shouldn't the girls keep after him? Among the athletes, Nick is known as the "Long jawed Pony Express." Whatever his name, his team-mates have utmost faith in him and his opponents fear him. He is nothing short of marvelous when in football clothes and anyone who has tried to pick up quicksilver with his fingers will know what it is to try to tackle Nick in an open field. Plebe year he made his Base- ball N but has since lost his swing: youngster year he fell into line with the Nt gang and annexed one. Second class year was the only year he failed to make a letter and sickness was the cause. First class year will probably add two or three more N's to his stock. We hope so anyhow, for we feel better when he's on the team. ' Boning is hard work for Nick, so he simply doesn't do it. This trait and an utter inability to throw a bluff cause him to stand low in his class. The only real boob stunt he ever tried was second class year, when he and Fats Mecum decided that Annapolis would look better if painted red. They dressed up in cits to do the stunt and were calmly caught before they had started a thing. Any other pair might have turned the trick, but Monty and Fats-help! Well, Nick, old boy, we think a lot of you. We'd all like to be like you, but then there can be only one Nick.

Monty therefore calls him Jew, the goat seekers call him Ned, others call him Barry, but "Oh you Willie" say the girls as they admire his generous nose, his massive brow and B," his twinkling eye. All but the nose are characteristic. He is savvy enough to stand about where he pleases, and this is usually well toward the top: his twinkling eye does not belie the nature of the man, for he's as full of fun as the proverbial barrel of monkeys. Practical jokes and just general good nature are as much character- istic of Barry as his ability to stand running himself. And his prominent nose has brought him a lot of this from Nick and Fats, his chief antagonists. He can laugh at nothing, loves to tease George Howe and is just naturally the busiest little person in the world when a chance to run anyone is presented. Willie has never been accused of even sympathizing with the Red lVlikesg in fact, he is one of the most consistent fussers in the class with attentions so widely divided that we don't know what to hope nor what to look for. Very few know how to dance if they base their 2.5 on Barry Wilson's slipping of the foot. He's a wonder. No hop is a hop unless Willie is there, and Willie is never there unless he has some queen with him. When we consider Willie's stature, we all wonder how under the sun nature ever managed to crowd such a big heart, so many likable, endearing qualities, into such a small body, but she did, and the result is a man whose warm-heartedness, whose fun and whose natural, gentlemanly behavior have endeared him to us all.

He attended the Jamestown Casino dances with chronometric regularity, and not being one of the Idaho rebels last summer he was one of the first to purchase a season ticket. All of his spare time on board ship was taken up with practicing new steps, origi- nated by the Turk, and priming his hair for the evening. His shipmates were jealous of him during his second class cruise when that "violetly" perfumed letter came every morning. And every evening would hnd him off in one corner writing a letter to the dear little one in Washington, D. C. His strength, goat and wit entertained the bunch many a time on the cruises. He could chin himself with one hand and lift any six in the class-one at a time. Once in a big while his goat crept out for a little grazing, but more often he succeeded in bringing out the animal of the Admiral's boy. This was fun for all hands. Always savvy he never bothered about a 2.5. He wanted one stripe: he rated it: and he got it. Having satisfied himself that he would get the said one stripe he bought a harmonica and a tin pipe, both of which he played only as joe Arnold can play. However, on one occasion he stepped out of his class and began to play a solo on one of Bandy's flutes. But he was suddenly and violently called down by Frenchie. Always full of sympathy for any one, always ready to be a friend in need, always as efficient as desirous of wearing his pink N, Rachel goes on leave to a heart in the heart of Washington with our sincere congratulations.

From the start he took a leading place in athletics and has had a throttle hold on football and crew for four years. N. B. He also holds several inter-company Mexican A. A. Records. It would indeed be hard to find a sunnier disposition than that of our dear little Billiken. He is so congenial that he never fails to make friends and to hold them until he begins to sing. Afloat, Tex becomes a different man. He was one of a gang of mis- guided athletes who took a dinghy ashore at six o'clock every morning, and was also one of the inexperienced youths who were so amazed at the sumptuous elegance of the W. O. quarters that they forgot to "beat it" at the critical moment. The place to view Tex to advantage is at a quarter-deck hop. He smooths down his locks, adjusts his smile, selects some pale, tiny, delicate little damsel, and, bending over her like a weeping willow over a violet, wiggles off with the ease of a plebe rating youngster for the first time. Always happy, full of nonsense, and ofttimes overwhelminglyludicrous, Tex will leave a broad trail of sunshine wherever he goes. l "Gimme a drag, kid!" l6I warner Williamson Yaayley Washington, D. C.

Judge for yourself if a fellow is not every inch a man and a good classmate if he will take a one- tenth in grease good naturedly first class cruise in order that his classmates might still court Milady Nicotine. Sifrein always enjoys a joke, and especially if it is of his own manufacture. He has the greatest laugh, too, a mixture of Bull and Perique with a little P. A. thrown in. But no matter what the time. when the place, or who the company. Sifrein can be relied upon to say or do the proper thing to have all hands laugh either with him or at him. First class year should have found Sifrein in the file closers, but since the powers that be thought otherwise, the Spig was content to fall in with the plebes in the rear rank. As usual. however, he refused to rhino. "Let's ketch one" is the one piece of music that he knows and is never tirecl of singing out. True he may not say it with the voice of a Caruso, but to most of us "to ketch one" with Sifrein is a decided pleasure. Whenever you see him in Smoke Hall you will find him calmly enjoying an inhale from a Bull skag. Fate treated him harshly when as a youngster in the class of thirteen she laid him low. The days he spent in a plaster cast of the strength of Gibraltar were not pleasant, but even then his cheery disposition would not be contained. ln the end he arose and he took up his bed with him. But all the work he had missed could not be made up in the few remaining months. Thus it happened that it took Sifrein five years to travel that winding road from Candidateville to Diplomatown. But while this was hard on Sifrein, it was pleasant to fourteen, for how else could we have become so well acquainted with the New Yorker?

I-le is a fast man on the track, and a good baseball player: he has always been a mainstay of the class football team and could probably do more if he tried hard enough. The girls don't seem to appeal to Mack much more than studies.

The argument always terminates in a rough-house, Robbo is tucked snugly under Cally's left arm, where he is retained until he consents to see things Cally's way. But by this time the study period is over and both Cally and Robbo wonder why the lessons are so long.

You hear this imperial command astern of you and you turn, expecting to see the dictator of Mexico approaching on horseback, but all that greets your inquisitive gaze is our own diminutive Rabo. His regal manner is due largely to three years' extensive educational work among such hapless plebes as have happened to stumble on the field of his military operations. Although he has been long in the race for the coveted position of class comedian, still, when necessity demands it, he can get right down and "dig" This was evidenced by his conduct during our long and sorrowful campaign against the English department. Rabo was in the thick of the fight and however he managed to escape the crash in the "Fall of the House of Usher" is one of the oddities noted in "Aes Triplex." Nevertheless he did escape, and in order to celebrate he took charge of the grand reunion of English war veterans in Washington on first class leave. He proved then-that he was at least water tight after the confiict and registered himself as W. T. Hatch, No. 23. Little recked we of his athletic ability until first class year when he demonstrated his prowess by gamboling along the side lines of the football field with a load of lumber under each arm. He also devised a system of contortions, facial and otherwise, for signalling, which we consider vastly superior to the antiquated contrivances of one, Morse by name. His wit is really very superior both in quality and quantity. He always gets a laugh out of an awkward situation, and his rhino spells are as funny as his humorous sallies. Without Rabo what would Smoke Hall be? Q IG9 W1' Ytalpb 0lis'lDavis Chicago, lllinois "Fat" "Dave" "R.0." "One of lhc basl there is -ANON.

Davis's first intelligible words when a baby must have been "All right." And everything since then has been all right with him. Ralph Otis was elected Class President, the biggest honor that can befall a midshipman. And how well he has fulfilled his office is evidenced by the many considerations and privileges our class has enjoyed. Those of us who have been "up before the Com," know better, perhaps, the ceaseless endeavors Fat makes. Never a classmate in trouble that Davis isn't right on the job, with the helpful word and the right thing to do. He has spent his time for the Class and the verdict must ben-The best Class President the Academy has ever seen. ln athletics Fat has had a hard run of luck. Varsity material for Crew and Football, a bum knee has kept him out of the first line- up, but a glance at his record will show what nerve will do. C-ritting his teeth and defying pain, he played many a great game of football until at length another whack on that knee would send him to the hospital. ln crew he ranks as an excellent oarsman with plenty of stick. A But on the lighter side of life is where Dave shows up best. The old 7th remembers with trembling, his bugle, his mandolin and his voice. The instigator of more egg crownings than any other man, he got off the lightest. Dave could bring joy to the gloomiest rhino by a plan to "crown Bump with an egg." His lectures delivered on any. and all subjects always brought applause in the shape of shoes and bats hurled at his head, but nothing could head him off, once started. ln fact, his love of a genteel rough-house is what has caused his studies to suffer. He believes in ignoring them for three months, and then rushing madly around the last week for aid and succor. Always came out on top though, you'll notice. Therefore a true savoir. Dave has high ideals, his code of right and wrong is clearly dehned, he is square and a man through and through, and so he isa--All right.

An accomplishment of no small merit either. Ralston had rejoiced under the name of "Barney" whilst a child, but the U. S. N. A. couldn't stand for that, so now it's "Little Gun." If you wish to see a fine imitation of a raving berserker call him that, but do it on the telephone. His rough-housing abilities stand out even amongst the exploits of Bumpus. On the serious side, though, Ralston has made good as few of us can. A star tackle on the team, he has been known as one of the fiercest players on the field, sports two NWS, so you can judge for your- self. Then just to keep his hand in, he plays Lacrosse well enough to make the best team we've had in years. Was elected President of the Y. M. C. A. and is one of the few men who can hold down a meeting of that obstreperous body with any degree of success, though 'tis rumored he once inquired as to "who in the h-ll is running this meeting." Ralston works hard at everything he does and naturally makes good. He cares nothing for anybody's opinions on his mode of life, but decides his own troubles and desires for himself and then accomplishes things. His energy is amazing, his will power immense, his vocabulary striking, his walk decided. We are almost afraid to tell you, B. B., but we rather like your ways, and when you are out in the Service meeting its problems, may you meet them with the same force and clearness as you did those of the U. S. N. A.

Second class year he made himself famous in the june Week Show by his song, "She Wore Silk Stockings and a Smile." No gather- ing at the second class smoking parlor was complete without him. Sound didn't travel much faster than Beanie, for he usually got there before tattoo was Hnished. His love of the weed nearly got him into serious difficulty second class year, but he still continued to burn incense at the altar of Nick O'Tene. First class year he was chosen to be the worthy successor of Gas Smith, Gussie Wilbur, and Froggy Gillette, in the capacity of cheer leader of the brigade. He handled the job just like everyone wishes to see it handled, with plenty of "pep" and ginger. He was always prompt, always cheerful and always crying for more noise. We have been to many places: we have seen many fellows 3- we have acquired many friends. But we have never come across such a prince of good fellows as Beanie. We like his clever work on the class football team: we spoon on his songs and stories: we admire his way of handling the Brigade at the games: but most of all we are in love with his smile.

Although Pi had a half year's start on the rest of us and had many friendships in l9l3, when he became one of us, he was with us body, mind and soul. What more could we ask or what more could we give? Pi has been a hard-working crew man ever since he entered the Academy. Whenever the weather was favorable, you would find him around the boat-house waiting for some others to make up an eight. Never was there a man who deserved an "N" more than Pi. On second-class cruise this "Dakota Indian" became familiar with the practical method used in stowing coal bunkers on the New jersey. He mastered this art so well that now he can stow more tobacco in a hod than any other man in the class. Pi has always been a brightly shining light among the ladies.

To HFat" Mecum belongs the credit for domesticating this phenomenon. And it is indeed a well done job.

Hence the Arkansas detail never knows what the next lesson is in electricity. After all is said and done, however, Crockett's faults are few and his virtues many.

He early became an object of interest to us all. l'le's the kind of fellow whose room you'll enter every once in a while for the sake of looking at his bookshelf-or the new nicknacks on his table-if for no other purpose. l-le's always doing something or saying something just a little different from what the rest say or doe-and when we've seen him do it we generally go back to our rooms and wonder, "Why not?" Peter has not worn a star upon his collar, but has worked faithfully and consist- ently and deserves all the credit due to one who has won the honor. l'le believes that if you find something that is a little easier for you than the usual run of things, then go in for that something and do it up rightvthat the margin you so accumulate will help you some time when something else has you up against the wall. lt's an idea well worth considering.

He is one of the most popular and at the same time one of the most abused men in the Academy, for he has been the butt of more jokes than any other man in the class. He had the high honors of egg-crowning twice second class year, and it can hardly be said that he appreciated the distinction. Dummy A says whenever he hears a bunch coming down the corridor, he always knows it's Grifiin, O'Brien and the tribe coming to serenade him with a pathetic' little ballad such as, "Oh, and Dummy, dear, and did you hear The news that's going around, On all the trees of Rameses your Polock name is found: lt's a most distressing sight to see your name upon the tree, Till you contrive to make two-five you're bound for the old country." Tune: Wearing of the Green. Dummy easily holds the honors for being the most adept at B'-essing in the class. His hand motions and manner of stroking his chin have long been the envy of his classmates. He admits that his "Peck Snyder" like attitude in the class room has more than once got him a three or better. With all his hot air, however, when it comes to a show-down, 190 is all he can blow on the spirometer test. And say as for swimming, why Porpoises hav'en't got a show with him.

One most admirable trait of Bottles is his habit of dragging queens. He believes in dragging the prettiest and the most stylish or else staying away from the hop. One time, not so long ago, his picture was misplaced in one of the girls' seminaries at " 'i ' Washington. Every girl there fell violently for him and one day Dummy had one of the crowd down for a hop. She said: "Oh, you know we've got apieture of the most handsome midshipman in the Brigade! Yes, he surely made a crush on us! Such beautiful eyes!" Dummy, a little fussed, asked: "Oh, who is he?" "Mr. Larson, l believe his name is," she sweetly chirps. "Oh hell! my roommate," Dummy chuckles. The following October Dummy sends an invitation to the series of winter hops to the young lady with Swede's card enclosed. The very next day Swede gets a highly perfumed letter expressing the following: "Dearest Mr. Larson, l am glad to say that l will come down to every hop with you." Swede as a retired member of the Whip: "Whoa, Fly! whoa!" And down the road goes Fly at 3 knots per standard compass. The vibrations are too much for the Swede, and up and clown he bobs like a rubber ball. But after it is all over, Swede smiles and everything is O.

Tennis is where he shines with the greatest brilliancy. He made the team plebe year and was of course elected captain when first class year rolled around. "Pop" cloesn't bone much, but to hear him carefully explain a point to the prof you would think that he had written the text or a better one. The only trouble is that he invariably gums the game before the month is over by some such remark as-"Sir, are spectacles lenses, or mirrors?" Sometimes they put him on the tree, and at other times they reprove him with such a response as -"Bull Con, Mr. Popham, Bull Con!" Ever since one night youngster year when his room-mate was awakened by a shrill wail of "Full Speed Astern!" and looked over to see him madly working the supposed annunciator Qbed- postj, we have predicted great things for his career afloat.

Quiet and unassuming was our Hrst impression, but we soon found him aspirited classmate and a jovial comrade. Unlike most of us, Fritz has that remarkable power of concentration which enables him to learn rapidly and remem- ber infinitely. He is too modest to admit himself a savoir, but those who have sought his aid know well his keen, practical judgment to say nothing of his book knowledge. A deep thinker, a zealous reader, an enthusiastic musician and an excellent dancer make him a much to be cle- sired society man. But such accomplishments rest lightly on the head of our friend, Fritz, who knows no conceit. Though known to drag often, we believe him immune to the tender glances of the fair sex. Perhaps a girl back home is responsible for this apparent indifference. i Endowed with somewhat of a sensitive nature, he is, however, quick to forgive and for- get, and his frankness cannot help but incite one's admiration. Conscientious and thrifty in everything he does. Sensible and knowing in everything he says. Wise and dignified in every- thing he thinks!

When he hrst appeared among us, it would have been hard to find a more unsophisticated man, even among the callow plebes. He soon gained a reputation among his associates for his realistic presentation of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and has shone in the ballet of the "lVlasqueraders" for three years. As he left the chorus behind him first class year, and became a star, destined to out- shine Venus, he is soon to publish his experiences, "Three Years a Chorus Girl." I-le has never been known to get "rhinog" in fact it is often necessary to suppress his exuberant joyousness. Not distinguished by athletics or class honors he has been one who by constant maintenance of good humor and conscientious loyalty to high ideals has contributed largely to the good will and honor of our class. Generous and sincere, he is valued as a friend by all who know him. Steady application has won for him a creditable standing in the class. His success in the service is assured by the same qualities which have made him successful here. He may not have the opportunity to enlighten japan or discover the North Pole, but we venture to predict that he will do his part to maintain the high standard of the service as he has that of I9l4.

Lots of people don't know Gus, for he is unassuming and cloesn't push himself, but when he lets loose, he surely can keep a crowd in an uproar. Won fame second year with Roger Williams by means of a picture of Gaby, nearly lifesize, which adorns his locker, and behold, as Roger said, he is from the seat of Puritanism. I-le was always a leading spirit in the eighth company raids on poor "Dummy," and is the author of that eulogy to "Count" which will be found in the latter's write up. Read Gus's quotation and you'll see he has been somewhat of a Red Mike around here, but there is talk of a girl back home which has pretty substantial backing in the shape of two scented letters that arrive weekly. Gus is an old sea-dog, never traveling by rail if possible-not even from New York to Boston if the "Old Fall River Line" is running. Bet he knows more old 'Shanties' than any other rnan in the Academy. Ever hear him sing 'Blow the Men Down'? lt's rare. All this sounds as if Gus were what we fondly term Ha jolly good fellow"-and he is. But most of us are privileged to know a much more important side of him and to recognize its value. Have you ever seen him when he wasn't "there" with a strong hand for anything or anybody he can help? No, and you never will.

Now, all you people gather around me and listen. l have a word or two to tell you about one of the best there is. One morning in July, l9l0, l saw a black-eyed, good- looking boy walking down the corridor with Shorty. Someone said this was O'Brieng ever since he has been Obie. Well, this boy grew in strength, popularity and common sense into a man. He was hailed plebe year as a wonderfully graceful dancer. l'le took up the matter of Masqueraders and was the real Queen of june Week. Each succeeding year he has developed more and more as an artistic dancer and actress until now it seems that i without Obie there can be no Hundredth Night or June Week show. Not only is this bunch of black eyes and smiles an authority on how a woman should dress, but also a prodigy in speaking French. Not as a direct result, however, because it would have happened anyhow, he was the nation's first choice for the Hop Committee Youngster year. l'le deserved anything in the power of our Class to give him, and he got what he wanted. Cheerful and happy at all times is Frank. l-le makes you feel the same way. His real care in this world is friends. He loves his friends with all his heart, he shares their troubles and pleasures, and for them he will do anything honorable that will make them happy. Now just what would the old ship Bancroft be without Frank's receptions, parties and dramas? A dreary place, yes! What would the North.D's dance have been without Frank's artistic touch? Not much, no! This man knows the value of a friend and one other thing few people know, that is, how to judge one. Rivers may come and rivers may go fand we will probably cross them alll, Obie, but you must go on forever, uncrossed, with your contagious smile, your good word and 3 -5 your sound judgment.

When Hrst we knew him he was deeply involved with the ultimate triumph of ethereal mind over commonplace matter. Ofttimes the consideration of this puzzling question so weighed upon him that he forgot his ambition for a naval career and longed for the quiet life of research in a secluded laboratory, or the pastoral existence of a poet under the spreading leaves of sage brush on the banks of Bow Creek, where he spent his early days. But we have gradually turned him from the pursuit of the mysterious in life, and brought him to a reconciliation with the continual round of pleasure, until now he is one of the happiest among us and a large contributor to the good humor of everyone he meets. He has his own warmihandclasp, his own peculiar wit, and his originality is refresh- ing. His persistence in enveloping a perfectly good recitation in the disguise of a rambling dissertation on most anything has often resulted in low marks and all but caused his downfall in electricity during second class year. Was never known to woo my lady Nicotine to any extent, but he does not hesitate to burn a skag on a fitting occasion, and way back home, he excites the envy of the natives with his cosmo- politan manner of allowing the little white cylinder to droop from the off corner of his mouth. I-Ie has also blossomed into a fusser of no mean note. He is quick as a cat, and way back in candidate days acquired the ambition to be a swords- man. Although he was not particularly successful at the start, he stuck to the game, and after winning distinction with the broadsworcl, took up fencing in earnest.

Always ready for fun but when it comes to things which count for success in life, Shortie tackles .them in a quiet, unassuming '- Q manner and masters them. Indeed he is even more serious than people give him credit for being. No he is not a Crand- father as you might suppose from looking at his hair. He has tried all remedies to save it, but the waves are receding and the beach appearing. We can't help but lay the blame for this to Deacon who expounds Darwin, Spencer, and-- to poor Shortie by the hour. He has survived Deacon's line and deserves great credit for this if for nothing else. Shortie is certainly good with the B'-essing. T'ain't no better in the class at this art. Sure has some marvelous talks about Hawaii. Speaking about Hawaii, have you ever doped out where Shortie comes from? One minute he mentions Astoria as home, the next minute Hawaiig the next minute Portland: and now Benicia. As near as we can figure out he comes from the west coast. Shortie has been a good man in class athletics and a good man on the Academy track team.

Object: To get there no matter how much midnight oil INUTE Shorty has always lived on the coast and had been to sea on a six-master before most of us had learned how to row. This experience, to say nothing ofa first class cruise on the lllinois, makes him as sea-going as that memorable character of plebe days who had been to sea "all of his bloody life." I-le started in at our first June Ball and has been dragging ever since. Fussing and going on liberty are his long suites. l-lis name is always on the first liberty list, whether it is Crabtown or Paris. Mac invariably enjoys him- self. The Sunday papers back home devote columns annually to tracing his glorious career and always state with pride that he was started on the road to military fame by four years in the High School.Cadet Corps. This quiet little Scotchman does a lot of good hard work in spite of his fondness for hops and liberty. It took a long string of five a. m. study periods to pull him off the shoals of Cal- culus, but since then he has had little trouble keeping in the channel. Mac is conscientious in everything, a friend that sticks, one who gets into no trouble him- self, but is always ready to help a class-mate who is out of luck. We tried our hardest to rake up some dark chapter in his life to put into print, but it's no use. May he finish as well as he has begun!

Fussing is his favorite sport outside the academy, and should the pink "N" ever be awarded, Pere certainly will be the one to receive it. He is an exceptionally good looking chap, and has a brace that gives him the appearance of a prize-winning pouter pigeon at a poultry exhibition. Combine these two attributes with his exquisite flow of words and you have a most formidable opponent in the fussing game. He is an admirer of the city of Boston, and willingly took 25 D's in order that he might stay just a few hours longer with a fair acquaintance there. Pere had his heart stolen from him during second class year by a pretty little Baltimorean, but he has never once reported its loss, and we are sure he is satisfied that the theft was committed. He is an excellent sailor, having come in second in two races, thereby winning two of Colonel Thompson's monoculars. His academic career has been successful. Though not "star- ring" he has always been able to keep well above a 3.0. He is the Lord Chesterheld of the class, and while his goat is easily brought out, the little Angora can travel for quite a distance before Pere gets hot enough to fight. He doesn't use tobacco, and has a very mild vocabulary. He enjoyed the Marine and Field club, however, when in New York, and it wasn't the sports or the girls that he liked best either. He is a true friend, ready and willing to help you when you get into trouble, and has a good influence upon all with whom he comes in contact.

On the cruise, he does his duty as he sees it: stands all his watches, takes all his boat trips, and never grumbles. He is inclined to favor a minimum amount of work combined with a maximum amount of "caulking-off" and amusement. He acted as stage manager for the famous drama "Rudack y Bulackf' Another characteristic is his readiness to start an argument, and then chip in with some sage remark. Doping out watch bills is one of his heavy stunts. He lives by his wits, which are made pretty sharp by his constant proximity to the ragged edge.

Plebe year he made his gray numeralsg and later after the new order was published, he made his yellow numerals. He is a good, hard worker for the fencing team as well as a maker of 4.0's. 200 lim Sa f if a A1 EMC" L fe- ff., - A of ra! - 'ia X .

The luckless ones that do fall out for repairs so extensive as to require months for completion are sure to feel this unseasonable desire to get back in the whirl-for such the life seems to a casual 7 - observer. Let there be a delay and they are chafed and become impatient for the day to arrive when they may return to duty and share with their friends the familiar ups and downs that make the life worth while. ln the case of these unfortunates impatience is the vital factor, for it is only after the accompanying feelings of unrest and fretfulness assert themselves that the desire to go back to duty is strongest. Those disqualified on account of more serious physical defects experience much the same feeling. The cases referred to now are of such a nature as to make a return to duty at any date most improbable. The patient realizes how very small his chances are, yet the blind hope that his case will be the exception is ever present in his mind. Certainly the attachment felt for his class and for the life must be strong to enable him to cherish thru month after month a hope so forlorn as to be almost an idle fancy. One would think that after so many months of shattered expecta- tions and frequent disappointments the patient would realize the futility of further considering a return. yet in many cases the bottom drops out only upon the reception of the ever fatal "request." Those skeptical ones whose experiences with the Doctors extend over a couple of week- end visits to sick quarters doubtlesscannot imagine themselves wanting to return to duty before being compelled to do so-to them we say, "Be careful, your turn may be next."

Y Taba Tffcro as a mibsbipman 'ARLY in the summer of l9l l, when the jelly-fish were beginning to swarm in the Severn, various earnest youths from the far-Hung cities and hamlets of our nation threaded their way through the quaint streets of that quaint old city,-yes, Annapolis. With inflated chests and with heads hitched to stars, these well- .deserving young men buoyantly marched to the stronghold of Fidelity and Obedience, where, in exchange for their liberty, pursuit of happi- ness and 328064, they received eight natty canvas suits. two neckties and "A Message to Garcia." With this generous equipment, they set to carving for themselves tablets of bronze to repose in the halls dedicated to the nation's naval heroes. The strivings of this devoted band for the following twelve months, the period known l geologically as "plebe year," were obscure and often ill directed. The task of chewing chalk for a 2.5 discouraged their efforts in bronze. Even youngster cruise and life on the heaving deep inspired naught save seasickness. An ephemeral leave was followed by an eon of Calc, a drear, groping struggle with long, phantasmagoric equations. The survivors of the stricken held embarkediwith twelve pounds of Steam books, bound on the happiest journey yet, the fleet cruise. ln addition to enjoyment derived, the note books of this cruise supplement wonder- fully the course in Steam: consult "Walker on Naval Engineering." But the cruise, even leave, was only a fitting prelude to the Supper at the Hotel Raleigh, where La Seiorita Reina Mercedes made her d6but as the Class Girl. While grieved by the absence of the Chairman, all were cheered and stimulated by Grove's deep-seeing speech and by other spark- ling Hows. There are extant one l'lLlI1ClI'eCl and eighty-Qdd Specimens Of the Original two hundred and fifty Heroes appointed two epochs ago. They believe it possible to be "sat" in all second class sub- jects at one time, each subject being the easiest thing in the Academic course. But-the engravers still neglect their bronze to work in chalk. -lr 215 ...Lt A lx N V ni, . , dv . ,..- . x -, ' ,.g. V . " -, Walla. .

The graceful one paused abruptly in the highland fling he was execu- ting to the strains of the elec- tric piano. With a whoop, and a slide which Gaby might have envied, he Hung himself upon the approaching hulk. A satisfaction which rivulets of perspiration could not efface emanated from the portly -".. --'-""" countenance of the new- comer. With an impressive gesture of pride the prodigal separated from the folds of his drapery and held aloft a glittering object. But verily, pride goeth before a fall. The graceful one inspected carefully, rubbed inquisitively, then grinned derisively. "Seven bones for this!" K But the form before him had wilted as the bulging eyes gazed upon that blighting finger. It was stained with Toledo ware! AS GEORGE ADE SAW US. Once upon a Time there was a Class of Young Bloods who gained the Handle of "Youngsters" They were now ready for a Trip across the Drink. Accordingly, after bidding a tearful Farewell to the Dear Cnes. they embarked upon an Instrument of Destruction, yclept "Illinois," and set sail for the Old Country. In a few weeks as seamen they had Dana lashed to the Mast. They had learned to resist the Desire to lose all Earthly Belongings: no longer spoke of "Going Down Stairsf' could tell a Sail from an lce Berg: and could keep the ship within twenty Degrees of her Course with little difficulty. They had learned the Art of doing Swedish Movements with no Expenditure of Energy, and of keeping five Suits of dirty "Works" concealed at one time. After three months they Returned. A Few of them drew Kale from the Paymaster, and all Hands headed for Home, with "Old Salt" written across their Mugs and "Europe" all over their Suit Cases.

Mercedes, where we were given the liberty of l l l the deck and lower parade ground. Every Sunday morning the latest arrivals were lined up and marched to sick bay, to be vaccinated, much to the delight of those who had already gone through the ordeal. The victims were cheered by the news that there were only ten . .. men in the hospital as the result of former operations. During the week our time was taken up with infantry, seamanship, rifle practice and Swedish movements together with lessons in table manners given voluntarily by the upperclassmen sitting nearest to us in the mess hall. Our stay on the ship, however, served one valuable purpose, that of bringing us in closer touch with each other. In fact, the proximity was a little too close when there were two hundred of us on one deck and there was a hammock to every eighteen inches of space. The great events of the week were the marches to Bancroft Hall for hair cuts on Saturday afternoons and to the movies on Saturday , nights. One man in our class even received a letter from a seminary girl in Washington urging him to come up to tea Kg ,XY , ', some Sunday afternoon and bring a lot of the fellows. Our 351. V' V5 5 greatest triumph of the year, however, was our appearance in 1 2' full dress at "The lVlasqueraclers," where the upperclassmen very kindly yielded us their seats. A few days later our hard- ships were forgotten when we moved into first class rooms in Bancroft Hall. ' , i f x , Here we lived a life of ease and are continuing lo livc the same Ida. 226 i V i .

Continual changes in the plans and disturbances in Cuba made ofhcial notification of our ships slow in being published. The last details were not posted until the morning for em- barkation. About the middle of june Week while the brigade was at supper one evening the first division steamed up the bay and was anchored in Annapolis Roads. The third and fourth divisions were south to assist in securing a speedy and pacific settlement of the disturbances in Cuba, and so when the time came when according to ancient practice each midshipman should collect three laundry bags, a suitcase, and a hammock mattress, not to mention two blue caps and one white one on a string around his neck, and dump them into the boat that was to l li' ..

Of course the favored ones of the class, the A's, B's, and C's, de- tailed to the first division, did not worry, for the Dreadnoughts were anchored in the Roads. An order was read out on the day of embarkation notifying those detailed to the second division that they would remain here a week, and ordering those attached to the third and fourth divisions to embark on the San Francisco, a mine layer, and proceed south on board her and join our ships wherever they happened to be. The first division embarked on Satur- . day and came ashore next day on liberty. , They had been in the fleet. The rest of us quizzed them breathlessly and received their answers to our thousand and one questions as the utterances of an oracle. "How did the officers receive them and treat them?" "What kind of quarters did they have?" "How was the grub?" "What were their privileges going to be?" And so on ad The Nonh Daiwa infnilum. Their answers gave us our first ideas of what we could expect when we joined the ships to which we had been de- tailed. The second division remained here , . for a week investigating the insides of models in the Steam Building and then made the trip down the bay to their "summer yachts" on a torpedo boat. Gee, what a happy bunch they were when they arrived at the end of the first leg of their first cruise "in the fleet!" The trip down was almost the most dis- agreeable one could imagine. lt was chilly, the torpedo boat coughed up cinders as big as an egg fthe writer was so informed by one of the unfortunates and disclaims any responsibility for the truth of this state- mentl-and towards sunset it rained.

This yacht was not exactly a speed boat, and due to her distri- bution of machinery had a peculiar roll. Oh, she was class! The weather during the trip was fair, how- ever, and the run rather pleasant. We had practically nothing to do and we saw the most won- 4lh of July Sport got further south the water became indigo in hue, we derful sights. As we saw flying fish and strange birds, and one afternoon for over an hour we passed thru a portion of the sea where the surface was covered with jelly. Porpoises would frequently join us and we could see them clearly in the azure water swimming just for- ward of our stern. Such wonders were new to most of us. They helped us pass the time and forget how restricted were our sleeping quarters and inadequate the facilities for messing. We kept on southwards, the thermometer going up every day until we arrived at Key West. Here the most fortunate ones, at least they considered themselves so and no one argued the matter, joined their ships, but the San Francisco weighed anchor and went on to Havana and then to Guantanamo, where the last of us were delivered to our ships. Key West was awfully hot and there was nothing much there to pass the time. The fussers used to go ashore and dance, but the meals there were the truest sport. They were nothing more nor less than a three- cornered race, the flies and mosquitoes acting in concert against the man. The mosquitoes, really an abundant crop, punctured the man, distracting his attention from the chow, and the flies proceeded to make way with the most of that. Some sport! Next to baseball and dancing it was Key Wea! the favorite pastime of both kingfishers and conks. Those who went to Havana tell great tales of the capital of Cuba and the wonderful days they spent there. R-E-M-O-R-S-E is the word. Consult Bingo. Amusements at Guantanamo consisted of swim- ming and buying ice cream at the canteen ashore. The fellows who were marooned there have never been heard to rave about the wonderful time that they had there. The conclusion is obvious. But while these things had been happen- ing to the tail-enders of the fleet the first division had gone to Boston. After a short stay at the "Hub" they had put out to Provincetown, where torpedo practice was held and the midshipmen spent their spare time chasing the festive torpedoes. That is big game and mighty elusive. After reaching their ships at Hampton Roads, those attached to the second division also spent a week 240 A Florida Shark ii V ii li , ' 'f A A-fr! fl A nffrs lt..-'ff Wi- 'Q Al.

This week at sea was followed by a more pleasant one in Baltimore where the Democratic National Con- vention was in session. Many are the tales of adventures in the Monumental City during those eventful days. These events consumed the month of june. The troubles in Cuba were straightened out and the ships at Key West, Havana and Guantanamo returned north. The entire fleet assembled in Newport early in July. Here for the first time since june Week we met many of our classmates and compared notes about our ships, our ports, and the kindred subjects which are of prime im- portance according to a midshipman's way of thinking. Here also for the First time since we sailed from Crabtown we saw the Massie with her- crew of youngsters. Here was held a reunion of all the midshipmen who had been distributed to the four corners of the universe the day From this point the story of second class cruise the fleet remained together the rest of the summer. time, however, some of the ships had gone to their yards and the midshipmen on it had been distributed among the other ships. A series of transfers which continued to the very end of the summer and which affected nearly all of us sooner or later had begun. Some of us moved three or four times, and some fortunate sons of fortune lived on the same ship for the whole cruise. They grumbled because as each ship went in for its docking they had more midshipmen to bunk and the same quarters as previously. Their worries were as nothing compared to those of one who solicitously witnessed his locker Newport Bench being lowered over the side, realizing that if anything gave way not only would his wardrobe consist of what he stood in but his bedding would be down in Davy Jones' locker. After suffering this sensation several times one acquired a martyr-like resignation. It was splendid training in learning what's the use of worrying. But these were only incidents in our life "in the fleet." This really began with the mobilization of the fleet in Newport. Heretofore, we had been in port or at least ports where one cared to go ashore very little. As a result we had passed the time pur- suing our jobs with more or less Admirnl'n Cabin Aboard the Ohio-alias lhe lVlidshipmen's Quarters 24 I ,,,,L1-m unxumw,-1...-,, . - ' 'fwmq ....

CFor further information on this subject refer to "Fire-room Frank."D One try at this job usually proved suffi- cient. On all the ships except two we had the smoking privilege, a con- dition which preventedmuch of the friction that usually existed between classes on the crab cruises. Then too we were allowed to amuse our- selves by playing cards, so that one could have a fairly decent time on There were practically no rates. We turned out when we wanted to, altho it was customary to heave out in time for breakfast. If one did not feel well, however, there was nothing to prevent him from sleeping all day in port. On most of the ships we had cots. No more "lash and carry" for us! On those ships that they did use . hammocks, no one ever thought of lashing them. There weren't half a dozen lashings on the same ship. We were gloriously non-reg. It was such a relief not to have to do all the hundred and one things which on youngster cruise we had learned were sea- going. In port we went ashore practically when we wanted to, for on very few ships were watches stood in port. Our liberty was supposed to expire at eleven but as a matter of fact we returned on the last boat and nothing was ever said about it. We had practically no responsibility: the whole cruise was a grand happy-go-lucky, devil-may-care lark for us. We had so much liberty that we had to go to sea to catch up our sleep. One week we would spend in Newport, the next at sea practicing battle maneuvers. While we were in port the routine was something like this. We heaved out for breakfast, after which we went below until some time after quarters. ln the after- Whilehead or Bliss-Leavitt? board ship if he wasn't much of a fusser.

Every few days there would be a party on one of the ships at which we were always in evidence. Some- times too much so. Those who cared less for dances spent their time in Newport. One could always find a crowd of midshipmen at the Perry House or the Hofbrau. These were our rendezvous. Our places of amuse- ment were the Opera l-louse, Freebody Park, and the. Beach.

Z -yi-V: as if the cruise would never endf We all were glad from the bottom of our hearts when we began our last war game and started south. "Thank God, the cruise is almost over," was the thought most prominent in each man's mind. When we arrived at Hampton Roads we found the Massie awaiting us. The football team were transferred to her and conveyed to Crabtown, where they went on leave. The rest of us remained out on the drill grounds for another week. There was great rejoicing among us when at last we got underway for Crabtown. As we steamed up the bay that night before we turned in we began to pick up lights we had seen before, and while we were doing our utmost to sleep in spite of our excitement the fleet an- chored. When we got up on deck next morning Bancroft Hall was in sight. With feverish haste we collected our belongings and piled them in the boats and after a half-hearted attempt to eat the breakfast which had been pre- pared for us we were allowed to shove off.

However, it was not strictly followed on all the ships, as on the "Wyoming," for instance, where the Captain was indignantly astonished at the idea of the 4 to 6 p. m. recreation period. Finally, however. all doubts were stilled--all "dope" killed-and we carried our rebellious laun- dry bags and libraries clown to the Reina Mercedes dock and embarked. ,lust about this stage the heavens lost control of themselves and began to whimper in sympathy, and when one of the gallant tugboats shoved off and promptly shoved on a ten-foot bar, the said heavens could restrain themselves no longer -they wept-all over those laundry bags. Well, after vainly endeavoring to shove on to the bar as firmly as possible, the idea was born that shoving of would be an original stunt, so it was done, and out we went. l Well, we'd been there before and soon became acclimated. It didn't take us long to dedicate our smoking par- Iors, nor did it take us long to break out 175, our Nav. books and other tortures. The Fleet was broken up-ships going in all directions. Of course, the "Arkansas" and "Florida" immediately began grafting by chasing clown to Norfolk to play "sosh" with the Brazilians, the former ship having such a good time that she went to New York with our friends, and played there for 246 The Admiral of the Fleet Y Egg: ,-.1-.N ..,...,,:. ,1 -N wi..

A l-lops, Movies, and boredom were the characteristics of the weeks in New- port. And outside it was a succession of Sub-calibre, Nav, General quarters, and Sleeplessness: lots of that latter. It was a much-debated question-whether you lost most sleep in port or out of port. The .hops were often fine-and sometimes not so fine. Several of the ships gave very interesting affairs, and, seen from a social viewpoint, the sum- mer was highly successful. If you don't believe it, ask ,Iimtown's hotel pro- prietors. Every oncein awhile they'd spring something new upon us--decide that we needed buzzer drill at least I5 minutes each day, or that a good-looking Nav- book was an altogether necessary requisite for liberty, or that I0 men on the pap at a single haul was pretty successful chaperonage.

We have gazed upon a cruise from the Mid- shipman's side of the fence for the last time. And though we have learned much from our I9I3 cruise: though it was the best of our three: though the food was passable and the treatment we received most excellent, yet it was without regret that we saw once more the chapel dome Qa welcome three days in advance of scheduled timeb, and it is with anticipation of yet greater changes and fewer hardships that we anticipate our first long cruise. l A Typical Boat Officer "Four bells of the morning watch!

Here witnessed they many spectacles, even a combat Bloody SM between bulls and men, a sport of exceeding attraction to the inhabi- tants. Once more did they voyage onward even unto the famed pillars of Hercules. Here in the shadow of the great rock there was much barter and descended they unto the ship with incense and fine raiment. Drawn by the sight of the Atlas mountains they descended unto the lan'd of the Ethiopians unto a town named Tangiers. And the ship's prow was turned toward the setting sun. And tarried they but once--a small group of islands, Madeira as the inhabitants called it. And from the heights above did they watch the stores being carried unto the ship. And of wine there was much abundance, whereof many know. And now began they the voyage back, and there was much bustle of preparation for a trial of skill in the use of the great instruments of destruction. And the time passed quickly, and so it came to pass that one sunny afternoon the sleepers were aroused by cries of, "Land! Land!" And straining their eyes they beheld a low, dark strip and great joy came into their hearts, for they were home. And several days passed they in exercise with the instruments of destruction. And they descended from out the Illinois and departed the length and breadth of the land unto their homes. Monsieur Rich?-',Ffiend, i':gi:,'f' Q X ' """""" - 'fb 'X' ' E Wu. .

But now aboard the Illinois, those days are all forgot, He doesn't seem to give a damn if school keeps up or not. Says Corwin to the Skipper, "I fear I must confess, That smoking in the youngster class is surely growing less." The Skipper said, "This good old practice must be kept alive, So we'll start to selling Bull again. two packages for five."

Ten days more and we sight the Azores gray, We don't know much about the place because we didn't stay.

And all the bloods of Antwerp have gathered there to-night, To see us keep four glasses dry and keep from getting tight. Of all the tales of summer joys upon the briny sea. The one that lingers longest is the trip to gay Paree, Where champagne flowed like water and the night was turned to day, And the only real regret we had-we had to go away. So it's can the noise in Illinois, the youngsters want to sleep, And smooth the bounding billows from the surface of the deep. "It's all down but ten" but we'd ship again with joy.

The luxury of nine to nineteen daily swims punctuating a continual sun bath claimed us for three days until a fresh down-bay breeze on August 30th brought up the anchor. Leaving the Patuxent River at six-thirty in the evening, we sailed all of a bright, moonlight night, and passed through the fleet in Hampton Roads at six bells the next morning.

A heavy autumnal storm which caused much damage to the ship- ping in the lower bay caught us on the night of September 3, and the "Argo" dragged anchor clear out into the fair- wayg not desiring to engage a tug. we planned to stay there. But some "friend" misrepresented Yorktown to us and we went there. Like all the' Southern rivers, the "York" is beautiful. but the last syllable is a mis- nomer. Still, the situation did combine all the advantages of camping out and ice- cream. The "Argo" went out on the noon ebb of the third day, and we spent that night and the next morning clawing off a lee shore in another storm. The "Old Chief" put in twelve hours at the wheel, and the remainder of the crew fed him stimulants and'trimmed sail-except C. W. A. Green, who passed the night in strict adherence to religion, and prayed with a vehemence and volume seldom surpassed, We finally drove into the mouth of the Rappahannock, dropped both anchors, and turned in. Here we made repairs, and then dropped down the river under alight S. W. breeze. We changed course up the bay about 2 o'clock, passed Wolf Trap, I-lowell's Light, Smith's Point, and Solomon's that night, and hove into the Severn at twilight on the morning of the I I th -fifteen dayys out.

Think of it! And then "never a knock!" !t's "Doug" Howard. Remember those words? Certainly: no midshipman could forget those words. They tell of the man who makes midshipmen realize that they are midshipmen. Neither will I forget the talk in smoke hall second class year that brought a team to tears and at the same time to their feet. "You all-ll men can Hght. And by Gawd I want to see you do-oo-oo it." Here comes Reilleyl "jim, Jim, Sunny Jim, Noisy Jim Reilleyf' No, sir, we cannot forget this man. "Right after 'em, people." "Get that man, Babe." "Tackle low, tackle low. I say tackle low. For God's sake, tackle low." Yes, those words come back to us all the time. His little y speech at the Y. M. C. A. meeting showed us clearly ' ' the great importance of athletics. "Jim" told us that it was the best college course, and we believe him. Remember "Jack, jack, Crackerjack, our jack Cates." Sure thing! We remember "Jack." He is watching the team every minute. And then this talk! It was great! "Victors or defeated men: Be each, pray God, a gentleman." We remember each one of the words of advice. We know that we will always remember them. Each one of these men has talked to us man to man and made us men. But "our father!" He always knows. "Rah, rah, rah! Proud we fee!! l Our Paul, Skinny Paul, Paul Dashiell!" ! Somehow or other we feel mighty close to these - - men. They have worked and fought with us. They Ompaul 266 have pleaded with us and they have cussed us. They have made us men. We sincerely appreciate their influence. we gladly accept their advice, and we truly emu- late their actions. We will never forget them. But is remem- brance alone a real consolation? Are dreams the same as realities? lt. is not natural that a football squad will report next September minus twenty of l9l4's men. It seems strange that we will not be in the stands as midshipmen next November. lt's hard, yes, very hard to realize that it's all over. Men of the Brigade, hear me! l9l4's day is over. Yes. it's over. It seems impossible. but it's over. lt's a sad day, this june Sth! But look here, you men of the Brigade, remember the words in each of the yells that is dedicated to one of the men who works for you all the time. Remember these words, people."Neveraknock.""Sunny Jim,""Crackerjack"and"Proud we feel." and next year, God knows, will be yours. fl-M X vfl ,, ,. 'v 's .1 IK. . fm gi: I - 5 - f 9 X 5.

K -5-'fIF'.fiiif'5ff-'ff 1. .1 3-1-if ' here on October 4th with fame already theirs through previous games, while Navy had prac- ticed only a short time. Still no one expected the westerners to put up such a game fight against our squad of veterans. With twelve Nt men as a nucleus our prospects were indeed bright, but Pittsburgh put enough pluck and grit in the game to give them the enviable distinction of holding us to a scoreless tie. No one was dismayed, however, at this result because the squad showed unmistakably that it had in it the making of a great team. Manager Hayle: Coaching began in dead earnest the week following this game, under the able leadership of our devoted "Doug" Howard, and the team made rapid strides which were manifested when we locked horns with Georgetown. Their coming was heralded with much gusto by partisan papers who did not look behind the score in our first game. It must be admitted that Georgetown had a well drilled team and that their leader was a brilliant player, but they were com- pletely subdued by the brawn and dash of the Navy team. The final score was a source of keen gratification to the backers of our squad. It cannot be said that we anticipated any serious trouble with Dickinson, but practice was just as thorough as ever and we were well primed when we lined up against them on the eighteenth. The game showed that the team had under- gone steady improvement. The spectators were given the treat of seeing the Navy's game opened up a little. While line ' f' plunges remained a prolific source of ground gaining, several pretty end runs and a for- ward pass or two were sprinkled in. By this time football critics had turned an eye of approval upon our team, and the Maryland Aggies were admittedly playing beyond their depth when they faced us on the " ' twenty-fifth. Still they hung on doggedly and played their best ball until the final 269 Geel l Wisli lhe Came Would Star! Captain Gilly whistle ended the one-sided contest. The score was quite the largest run up by a Navy team for some years back. During the next week the -' I - Brigade adopted a slogan which, being translated, meant "revenge on Lehigh for last year." Special attention was given by the squad to breaking up the open work plays which had been such splendid ground gainers for Lehigh in the past. Hence it was Rav WH on 'he Kick Off with great enthusiasm that we watched our now wonderful team treat them to a sound defeat, 39-0. From this time football became the popular topic of conversation in local circles and "get Bucknell too" was the common wish. Bucknell played us on November 8th, They had a cast iron reputation, and, while everyone was practically sure of our powerful machine, yet the visitors were more or less of an unknown quantity. We swept them off their feetin the first half and everyone thought "meat for us." But Bucknell still had some pep and came back strong in the third period with a touchdown. This was the first score of the season against us and quite nat- urally paraded the famous sea-going angora. His goatship's ire once roused, we proceeded to make more touchdowns in the last quar- P ter than in the whole first half. Final score . 70-7 and Navy again revenged. On the fifteenth with a wet, unpleasant field we went up against Penn State. They had a green team which had been hammered into shape around the wonderful little --H f- 1 Miller in a single season. This game was rather disappointing. Navy got within easy striking distance of the goal time and again, but lacked the final punch to carry it over. A single touchdown and a goal from placement were all we could muster on the scoreboard. This, however, depressed no one, and with but two short weeks to The Game we began to wear the usual grim expression. It has become more or less of a habit to play N. Y. U. the week before the f Army game. Accordingly we met our old friends on the twenty-second. The game was not phenomenal, but the Navy showed excellent form and came out on top, 48-0. With a wonderful record and 'a still more wonderful team, free from serious injuries, we had one week's practice ahead of us, with apparently the rosiest of prospects. However, it K f . seems that prospects are occasionally Navy',Ball deceptive. ln that week we yelled. 27l 1 Stonewall Defence . .n.:.A sang and spoke football. ln the mess hall we ate football three times a day. At recitation we sketched a H -4 side elevation of a football for a B Sz W boiler. At drill we read "Mike Love Watch" and cried out immediately "signal." We worked out the score from a standpoint of exterior ballistics and figured out the . effect of the team's initial velocity with a 28-inch vacuum. We marched and we snake-danced. We decorated Given 'O Mac' Tecumseh and prayed to the god of the Hinders. The night before the big game we got together in Smoke Hall and sent telegram upon telegram to That Team at the Vanderbilt Hotel. We talked and thought. We tried to be quiet and steady our nerves. It was no use. That one thing would fly back each time to the center of the mind and stay there. " T " Doyle got up and cautioned us about over-confidence. I-le said: "Fellows, if they begin to outplay us at any time, by Gawd let us yell that much louder! We have a fine team. But if by any chance we lose, let us go down, every man of us, with our colors flying." Tackle Low l We then turned in for a few hours' sleep. At 5.30 we were Lieulemml Chormley counting Off: N-A-V-Y. "Sir, the Brigade is formed." "Anchors Aweighf' "Squads right." And we were off.

Army game of l9l3 was played on the Polo Grounds in New York City. They were well arranged and well kept, to the satisfaction of all parties. 34 FF 44 ik PF Pk Captain Gilchrist won the toss and chose to defend the north goal. This 'of course gave the Army the kick-off, and at promptly 7 h. 05 m. G. M. T., Novem- ber 29, McEwan kicked off to Gilchrist on the twenty-yard line. "Gilly" got back to near the thirty-five yard line. A brilliant series of dashing, smashing plays followed, which, including a run of nearly 40 yards by "Monty" Nicholls, landed the ball on Army 's one-yard line with the goal to make in one down. Navy was rushing the Army off their feet and things looked fine, but the Army held and got the ball on downs. They got off a poor punt which was nabbed by Nicholls and planted on the 20-yard line. Several pretty line smashes netted only a few yards. Nicholls then ran the ball over squarely in front of the goal posts. On the next play "Babe" Brown dropped back to kick and a perceptible groan escaped the South Stand. The ball left his toe on the I9-yard line and sailed squarely over the goal posts. Navy 3, Army 0. McEwan kicked off again and Nicholls ran it back, only to fumble, and Army secured the ball on Navy's 25-yard line. It was Army's first chance to threaten Navy seriously. Several line smashes availed them nothing and then Markoe fumbled a forward pass made to him over the goal line. The Navy .h X n 3.

Brown kicked off to Army, who fum- bled, and Vaughan got the ball on their 20 yard line. A series of plays failed to make any substantial gains, so "Babe" was again called upon and delivered the goods with a beautiful goal from the 30 yard line. Navy 6, Army 3. McEwan kicked off and Navy got back to the 40 yard mark. A play failed here and Brown attempted a forward pass which rolled over the goal line. ,Iouett punted to the 45 yard line.

It seems like an anti- climax to most of us to go to a bas- ketball g a m e a .. week or two after .Ki an Army-Navy . game which we have not yet gotten out of our systems. ' During the winter, nevertheless, it forms our Saturday after- noon diversion, and crowded galleries with midshipmen standing two or three deep testify to its popularity here. Another feature which should not be passed by without a word is the inter-class series of games in which more interest is ' manifested than in any other inter-class athletics except pos- li 1 s-I had sibly football. Further- ' more, the class teams are Caplain lVlcRenvy ,Y pf fd Ay as a rule fast. f Our prospects in basketball were a A gg little dubious before the season. Last year GQ '31 we had a wonderful team which won every , bl! gameg this year at the beginning of the season ' ' we had only Smith of last year's team who ,f-v--, A 1 could play. lVlcReavy's injuries in the foot- ,gw 'i 7' ball game made it improbable that he would --,. .. be able to get back in the game before the 7' middle of the season, and we had not tried out L I A, . many others except the regular team last year.

F E B N THE MLK That game put an 5525: end to criticism and pessimism, and clearly showed that the season could not but be successful. The next game fulhlled our expectations. On Christ- mas Eve we secured a victory over Yale, the defeaters of the Army: a successful season was assured. Every game it was the same story: our team was determined to win, played hard, and did win. ln the game against the hitherto undefeated team of the Catholic University, lVlcReavy played for the Mananerxvilnse first time this season. This necessitated several changes in the line-up, but if the score tells the story the changes were certainly beneficial, for we won, Z8 to I7. Our game with Loyola was a source of satisfaction to us not only on account of the score but because of the excellent team work displayed by our "Hve." The following Saturday in the midst of the semi-ans. we played Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and it was a case of "Same----Same." Of Swarthrnore's fast team we entertained some fears but as the game progressed our fears were supplanted by admiration for our team. It was a very spectacular game and a Navy victory. 15. These facts speak for themselves. Whatever Z we may say of any other sport, our basketball season QW was successful. The team which at first many were 'SWS' ' ' - 14 vu - inclined to believe a forlorn hope developed in a remarkable manner. They played as a Navy team should, hard, consistent, fast, always keeping on the job. Thus they won victories for the Navy. Among the players "Smitty" of l9l5 stands out as a "phenom." He is undoubtedly the best college player in the United States. We cannot say Qtoo much in praise of him. His work needs no improvement. He is perfect. To "Jim, Jim, Sunny Jim," Ensign Wild and X' Captain lVlcReavy we take off our hats. They gave f 5' us a crackcrjack teamg they showed the Navy fight K iffy, 2 ag all times, and they won every game. No one "'i:7':l "A can do more. 286 5INucE - LAI' IM T! i CJDUIE To r' ' F 60?-' 2 if J CME 1:2 I l -4 ' ' ' . f I I f' I for -.HTH APOL cans S 77: I 'DYWG anne. .CS SCORES Navy . 32 N. Y. U.

Last year, however, West Point did not send a team to compete at the inter-col- legiate. This seemed to dampen enthu- siasm and diminish the interest of the Brigade in the sport. Such action could not but react against the team. The result has been that altho the squad has worked manfully, the Navy has not had the uniform success she was accustomed to have in fencing. Nevertheless our men have fenced in good form and have made their opponents work to win. They have fought with true Navy spirit and given unstintingly of their time and effort to furnish us a winning team. To the captain of the team, Hans, should especial credit be given for the form in which he has fenced. He has been our mainstay lffa Qplw.

The team showed fine work in taking second place in the inter-collegiates. Columbia was threatened time and again, her lead being overcome by the heady work of the Navy fencers. At intervals it seemed as if the Navy would bring back "the little man" for decorating the gymnasium, but fighting hard to the bitter end they lost it only by a link or so. Halpine, Clenclon, Peck, Partello and Ellsberg deserve MnnanerCochwne credit for their work on the team. Halpine made a splendid score in the novice events and took second place. He shows every indication of being an expert by his first class year. Cochrane is to be commended for his efficient way of managing the team. His work with the sabres is marvelous. Team, you have done well. In the early part of the year it seemed that the Navy would have a poor team. No one could realize your ability. No one cared to risk a good prediction for you. ln spite of all of this you have come to the front. The Academy is proud of you. is The Fencing Team 289 ,.

The boys like to break out in Navy blue tights and display their forms for the fair ones in the assembled multitude. For this reason this branch of athletics is popular with us and has a great many followers, so that its training table is well Filled. The fellows will trot to the gym every after- noon throughout the fall and winter to increase our prestige in athletics. Our gymnasts have always managed to organize a successful team, in fact we take success as almost assured. This season was no exception: we won every meet by a good margin. By graduation we lost some of the best men on last year's team so that it was difficult to tell what we should be able to do before the season began. The first Caplain Harrill meet removed all doubt in the matter, and our last meet, a triangular affair with Columbia and Rutgers, was a fitting climax to a suc- cessliul season's wor .

During the winter it rivals basketball in the inter- est which it attracts. If one saunters into the gym a trifle late and finds all chairs on two legs, all necks craned in one direction and the whole place silent, ' l he knows that a good bout is on, for during a bout the wrestling mat is f the cynosure of all eyes, and the su- perb form of our fencers in one end and of our gymnasts in the other is unnoticed. When Beauty or George pins his man's shoulders on the mat a shout goes up which reminds one of football days. This form of athletics is a favorite with us and one to which we lend hearty support. It should be so, for our team is never poor, never even mediocre: it is usually unusually successful. This season was no exception. Altho many anticipated that the inability of Captain Stecher to wrestle might handicap us seriously, their pessimism was overcome by the first meet.

The interest of the Brigade was aroused and we had hoped for a Varsity Squad for this year, but plans failed to materialize. But this year a series of class games has been played-each class playing six games. l9l4 won the championship. It is hoped that next year will find the Brigade competing with outside colleges in this branch of athletics. It is a game that will fill in the time between basketball and the spring sports to good advantage. A varsity team is all that is needed to make it as popular as lacrosse. 9 fH He QC -- O5 aAJ L Class Champions 295 The Lacrosse Squad newer: N S f' af' vfqre -W" l'flN7,' fi", iw7.'3i',12f:'i:i: 'V , sf , , ,A N Y f - mv V- -,, ., ,n.,.?-,. 1 ,, .,, ...,,, ,V n, T.. 5, ,..v:gs, pri f1'?i"A? 573157124445 45.

As such it is becoming one of the major sports at the Academy. ln addi- tion to the 'varsity squad each class is represented by a team, and A some l00 men go out for this sport each spring. The season of l9I3 was not a great success. With the two first classmen on the team kept out of play by one reason or another the greater part of the schedule was played with only two classes in the line-up. This loss weakened the team considerably. Baltimore furnishes annually a number of opponents in this sport, and we had one of them, the City College, in the opening match. The work on both sides was still ragged from lack of practice and wet spring fields, but general condition and experience gave the Navy the game, 9-0. Walbrook followed from Baltimore, and lost a well-fought game with the score 6-2.

For gruelling work and hard play, the Swarthmore game eclipsed all former ones. With the thermometer 850 in the shade, two regular halves failed to produce a victory, and three extra periods were tried in succession.

Neither of the succeeding periods produced a score, and the teams finally parted with the tie still standing. The team put a good end to the season, however, by defeating the Indians from Carlisle in a sharp, fast game by 5 goals to 2. We saw some pretty examples of running and dodging but little team work, and the smooth working of the Academy team soon removed all doubt about the Hnal result. Coach Finlayson comes back to put out a champion team. I-le will not be satisfied with anything less. Each visiting team must be defeated. Nothing else will do. With Captain Wiltse at the lead the team will be one eager for contests. Fast, snappy work is the cry at each practice.

Captain Vaiden The Brigade shouted at the team all the time, and that team played good ball. Towards the last of the sea- son their batting fell short about 35 per cent., but their fielding was practically perfect. "Si" and "Tommie" pitched great ball. "Spucls" nestled around home plate like a mother thrush and shot 'em down to second with little or no dispersion. "Horn" took everything coming his way with a "Thank you" and fired 'em straight to "jimmy" at the mean point of impact. Little "I-Iammy" at second stuck to 'em like a barrel of tar. The whole team played great ball, and so "Rick" loosened up a trifle and let 'em all have a package of gum the day before the Army game. We played hard and fought hard the whole season. Pennsylvania was deci- ' , sively trimmed in the early partofthespring. George- l town had a bunch of good . ball players but could not 1 stem the strong Navy cur- f rent.

The walk back to Cullum Hall was quiet but firm in the resolution that the game on May 30, l9l4, must be won. - At this time it is well to say that a better bunch of fellows than the West Pointers is hard to find.

It will make him feel good, cost you but little effort and you can explain to your friends afterwards that you don't really know him. II. If a young lady slips on the walk in the winter, do not rush lo pick her up. This is unmilitary and undignihed. Besides she may not be that kind of a girl. Ill. If the drill-master slips a cog. shout signal and give him the proper order. , IV. When Female excursions pass your window, sing out "Sail-ho," in a loud voice. 'lihis proves you to have an easy address, as well as giving the ladies a view of nautical life. V. Never have your hair cut or wear a shave. The Naval Academy is a democratic institution and class distinctions are to be avoided. The absence of garters and a collar also makes for good feeling VI. In entering an assembly late walk in quietly on the toes. Striding in on the hands is certain to cause attention, which to a well-bred midshipman is most repugnant. VII. Do not sit about during study hours in shirt sleeves. Trousers will be found much more comfortable. WHEN PUNCHING A MEAL TICKET OR DINING OUT I. Do not fail to be polite to the chaperon: she is the power behind the throne. Il. Be careful of your table manners. Never eat with your knife unless long practice has fitted you to do so with safety. It is not customary unless on the most intimate terms to put a supply of salt on the table-cloth. to throw bread, or to eat pie with the hngers. ' lll. Conversation is a difficult subject. Never rhino over the quality of the food or a scarce supply of provender. Cursing is rapidly going out of style and is no longer used hy the best conversationalists. Use plenty of slang. It makes one appear blase and at ease. Besides the fair young things love it. IV. Never offer to pay for anything or to buy anything. To do so is to establish a precedent and break a beautiful old custom. V. If called upon to say grace one can always beg off in favor of the silent grace, though it is better to memorize something short beforehand and spiel it out in a loud tone. This will make a hit with the old folks. VI. Do not fail to make a U bread and butter" call. Four till six is the best time for this as one can often run into a free lunch at this time. lf worked in the proper manner another in- vitation may be secured. AT DANCES, HOPS, AND BALLS I- If you collide with an officer, remark in a sprightly way that that is one way to get it back on them. Il. Never give a girl a pink ticket: to do so may lead to trouble. Make one out at the beginning of the year in favor of ,losephine Gish and tie it to your dress jacket. Some prefer not to bring a ticket and to push by the Jimmy- Legs. This it must be conceded is more cosmopolitan and besides gives the girls a pleasant thrill. Ill. Avoid the receiving stand. It is iust as much bother to them as to you. IV. Never flash a burning glance at a society beauty: the powder may ignite. -' THE V Curttar: mst mon. 'Pqqis .rub will as LAL ..3......1N- au.. .swxwwukm WA ctxurral-Q a.

About three-years ago I met a young lady and with me it was love at first sight. lwent with her I3 months. One night I took her to a dance. We had a disagreement and she let another young man accompany her home. I didn't speak to her for nearly two years, but about two weeks ago she stopped me on the street and started a conversation. Should I start keeping company with her again unless she apologizes to me, for it was entirely her fault that we quarreled? BROKENHEARTED JOE. l'm afraid that you are rather a quarrelsome young man. If a girl forgives you for quarreling with her, you ought to be thankful enough to forget all about the cause of the quarrel and go all the rest of the way to make up with her. Dear Miss Yeatman: I am a young man of I7. During the summer I had been going with a girl of our town, but lately I quit. One day a girl from a neighboring town came here on a visit. I took her downtown to the moving picture show. While on the street this former girl friend of mine met me and called me down right before my company. It made me feel cheap and I disclaimrd her from then on. Did she do the right thing? bhould I go back to her? Anxiously, A. H. B. -The girl was very inconsiderate. You will probably be hap- pier if you are not close friends with her. Dear Miss Yeatman: Iam a boy of I9 and in love with a girl of the same age. Isee her often, but don't make up with her. Give me a remedy for blackheads and pimples. LOUIS, My dear Iaddie, you're not any more in love than I am with this girl. I have no doubt she is a very nice girl. but when you are a few years older you will see other girls that seem iust as nice to you. If you want to make up with her, just forget all about yourself and think of how you can make her happy, Plenty of soap and water and frequent scrubbing are death to blackheads and pimples. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables, drink plenty of water, take a bath every day. Dear Miss Yeatman: I am Zl years old and about four months ago met a young man, and we fell in love with one another. But we had a quarrel, and I, thinking he loved me no more. told him I loved him no more. He hasn't been out for six weeks, but is coming soon How can I make him know, without making myself cheap, that I still love him? I know he loves me, for his chum told me so. Should I let him do the little affectionate things he used to do when we were first in love? I-low can I make him come again? I don't want him to come once and then not again. I am an independent girl and can give him up, but my love is not " puppy love." DEVOTED SUSIE. L'et him do-the lovemaking. Be nice and sweet to Dhim, but don the too easy. hlhen hell want to come again to see how things are coming along. 5- Some Oarsmen FLC.

"Dick" Crlendon actually smiled a smile of approval and said, "Be careful, boys: I'll need you next year." And "Dick" kept his promise the "next year," the next year, and this year. Nineteen thirteen was a very successful crew season, and, as always, the credit of it goes to "Dick" Glendon, who with his able assistant Lieut. C-lassford was untiring in his efforts. The victory over Princeton, who, the week before, had successfully coped with Har- vard and Pennsylvania, gave promise of the in the same race, the Navy Crew suc- cumbed to Columbia. Upon the return of the crew from Princeton, work was resumed with a great deal of earnestness and zest, with the ultimate object of getting Columbia at Philly two weeks later. It was at this point that the finesse of "Dick" Glendon as a coach was ex- hibited. With the race with Penn- sylvania but a week off, he shifted "Tubby" Leighton to stroke and "Babe" Brown took "Tubby's" place Jani I9I4 Plebes fleftl and Columbia Freshman friqhll, American Henley The Crew 3Il 4 . . v --1 " '.y at six.

Only the week be- ' ' fore Princeton had decisively defeated Harvard and Pennsylvania on the Charles River: the Columbia crew was a veteran one and already picked as the chief contestant of Cornell at the coming race at Poughkeepsie. As is known in all rowing circles, Al Princelon Bob Cary Repmenu :he Lucky Bag "Dick" Glendon turns out "some" crew. ln view of "'H""'y Rm' these facts this race was considered as the big race before the Poughkeepsie Regatta. The mag- nitude of this race caused much nervousness in our untried crew as they rowed up to take their place at the start. The course was new to the crew and to the coxswain, and was also a slow one due to the "drag" caused by the shallow water. The Navy took the lead at f the start but the pace was too great for her. Columbia finished in the lead, with Navy sec- ond, and Princeton third. A downcast but 'M "" ff'---M+Ar'A' determined crew returned Sunday,-a crew -I-ha, MCD0w,,n,G,a,,fo,d,Fancy Cm, determined to make the greatest effort to beat Columbia on the 3lst. On May 24th, the only race on the home course was rowed against Pennsyl- vania. The new combination, Leighton stroking and Brown at six, worked well. Rowing strong, but in good form, the Navy crossed the line with open water between them and the fighting Pennsy Crew,-a fact which encouraged the Big Eight to a great degree as Pennsy had a crew of greater than average form. On the same day the Plebe crew lost to the Pennsy Freshmen. The Plebes rowed a good race, but were matched against a very strong and powerful crew. 2:71:51 .---E.-. - ' iff' 'Lvl Q 'zfl ' U- ,-. ,V -fs Wig, ---w . -'. M - -J.: , E Via' .- .- 4. That Four 313 P 1 ,:. I,- .lwwiul Wag!! ....... f, Navy 2d Leading Cornell 2d Crew Varsity Four after Winning Race On the 3lst, the Varsity Eight race was held late in the afternoon. The Navy lined up against the Philadelphia Barge Club and her old rival, Columbia. The weather and conditions were excellent: the nervousness of the green crew was gone, and in every heart there was determina- tion. Again the Navy took a lead of a half boat length on the start. But instead of trying to increase this lead, as at Princeton, Navy simply held Columbia from gaining. By this time the other crew was out of the running and it was a dual race between the white and blue and the gold and blue. Columbia evidently thought it would be a repetition of the Princeton race. but the Navy held the lead, causing the veteran stroke Downing to turn his head to see if his coxswain could be telling him right. As the two crews passed the upper end of the island, a quarter of a mile from the finish, Columbia began to close up the lead and when they cleared the other end, 100 yards from the Finish, the shells were bow and bow. From then on it was a spurt: the race would go to the better Mmm, Com spurter. The Navy was the better spurter,-each man in the Navy shell saw the pale blue blades pull their last stroke, five feet behind,-the first cross-oar since the time of "Big Jonas" Ingram had been won.

No more cross-country trots! several star men by graduation! These caused interest to fall pretty low. It almost seemed that the death blow had ' been dealt to track ing else to do. It was not long, however, till the evidence showed Mm HCM that we had a far better team than R y we had supposed or even hoped for. The first meet was with Johns Hopkins. We were decisively defeated by a score of 60 to 28, because lack of interest and bad weather had combined to prevent any consistent training. ln the Hopkins meet a number of surprises were sprung, and our strength and weaknesses were dis- closed. I-lull, the record holder for the two-mile, took second in the high hurdles: the relay team showed what it could do: and Thompson, a fourth classman, won the quarter after an exciting race. The discus throw made its ap- pearance for the first time, being substituted for the ,X l hammer event. While as yet no one has shown par- ticularly brilliant performances it is to be hoped and ' expected that we The one-Mile 3I7 .. axis Y ll. V-,---5--..- ,,' 1 ' Pole Vnull will soon excel in this event. ln the class meet on April 26 there were no par- ticular sensations, but a consistent im- provement in all directions was shown. Armstrong won the medal for general excellence. The following Saturday we met Dickinson and overwhelmed them by a score of 76 to 9. Though realizing that this was no more than we should have done, the team felt much satisfaction in such a complete victory and set to work in earnest in preparation for Georgetown. Glowing reports had preceded them, and we were prepared for a close and hard-fought meet. As expected it was the best meet of the season, and though we won decisively on points, each event was well con- tested. The final score was 57 4-5 to 27 I-5. ln this meet the best records of the season were made in the two new events, the relay race and the discus throw. Wild in the phenomenal time of 9 4-5 seconds won the IOO yard dash and equalled Lee Carey's record. Too much credit cannot be given to Captain Hintze and to the coach, Scotty lVlclVlasters. Scotty is probably the best grounds- keeper and trainer in this country, and it is to the combined efforts of captain and coach that we owe the successful termination of what ap- peared at the start to be at best a poor season. The work of the relay team ' was quite f fill? 41, ,Z ,..- .9 --xi ..--f f f Y Y., -L.. f, i aft XY I ji --ar' IL- -'li ... ----' remarkable. Composed almost entirely of distance runners, they showed what grit and hard work A can accomplish by winning every race and setting up a record that will be hard to break. Thompson in the quarter did some wonderful running and in the three seasons before him will no doubt make . a name for himself. Short and Vickery missed their letters by a narrow margin, more from hard luck than from lack of excellence in per- forming. Palmer showed good l work throughout the 3l8 Himze and me Sho! just Short of First Place -, ,max-suv. .r ,V Qu- Hull Taken to the Hurdle: entire season. His running was spectacular. His even, steady work, his keen interest and deep enthusiasm brought him the captaincy for l9l4. From E. C. we have the following straight-from-the-shoulder dope: "What the Track Team needs is more interest to be shown throughout the year. It is the hard winter work in the 'Gym' that wins points in the spring. This is especially true of the field events. Almost anyone who is willing to train consistently has a place waiting for him. ln the high jump we are not even in the High School class and the broad jump is nearly as bad.

There is plenty of material, and hearty interest has been shown through- out the winter. A good schedule including Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Columbia and a quadran- gular meet is being arranged, and the meets are to be run off with a snap that should attract spectators. Mr. Mang has been appointed coach and it is expected that he will be able to develop a team to which the Navy can point with pride. J ha.. Cel Up and Get Over f, K N '5 l lblvi- s X ff , w 1 1 .

The season for practice was delayed and the men were slow in developing: we had new ranges and new forms of firing to learn: rain persistently interfered with practice and no meet with the Point could be arranged. This last was a bitter disappointment for the squad and for the entire brig- ade, as, aside from our nat- -1 u r a l e a g e r - ness to have things out with the Army, it is one sport in which, from a purely competitive standpoint, we should meet our A cadet friends. The service academies are right- fully supposed, by the average layman, to be the homes of the best marksmen in the country, so a match between the two branches would not be only locally interesting. i Despite all the set- Captain Ruddock backs encountered, the team finished with a creditable record and showed up unusually well in the "surprise fire,"-a form of firing at which we have never been beaten. Not to be outdone by any team of the past, and anxious to improve where possible, the team shot a skirmish run in the match with the D. C. National Ciuard and, by defeating them, squelched one of the best teams in the National Guard at this kind of firing. Contrary to time-worn custom, this year finds us entered in the Intercollegiate Championship indoor and outdoor matches. The fact that we are entered in Class B insteadaof Class A is due to our never having been in the league before. The indoor part of this is absolutely new to all of us,-no one has ever tried it before and no one knows what to expect, beyond the high- class performances that always result from Naval Academy effort. We confidently anticipate a winning season and an en- rollment in Class A next year. Mnnaner B. F. Clark 325 lunar- V l 1 I ," I 55 . Lumm . ' i "Yu mf :f"S" ' ' ' .3 'ml 'A .5 A .

We later defeated the same team and beat the 71st Regiment for the third consecutive time. ' The scores were as follows: D. C. N. G. 1499 U. S. N. A. 1427 U. S. N. A. 1521 71st N. Y. 1451 U. S. N. A 2395 D. C. N. C. 2363 - - In the first two of these matches, the highest possible score was 1800 and in the last, 3000. The schedule for the lnter-collegiate matches is as follows: Indoors: ' january 8-University of Wisconsin. january 15-Dartmouth College. January 22-Washington State College. January 29-Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College. February 5-University of Maine. February 12-Lehigh University. February 19-Clemson Agricultural College. February 26-Columbia University. March 5-University of Vermont. March 12-Kansas University. March 19-Cornell University. The outdoor matches are to be fired before July 8. We have four other matches: the Delaware N. G. on May 2, the District of Columbia N. G. on May 9, the 71st Regiment N. Y. N. Cu. on May 16, the Pennsylvania N. Cx. on May 6 or May 13, and the lntercollegiate outdoor cham- pionship match.

This con- 5' ' ' 4 4 ', ' X ' dition makes a good team assured,for the individual competition for a place In ,he Rifle gun, on the team will be keen and spirited. There is a probability of starting the meet with the D. C. National Guard on their own range in Washington. This will be an entirely new thing and one well worth the experience. We are making it possible for the midshipmen who do not participate in the meets to go to the range and watch the firing. And we want some of the fellows there. Of course there is not much action, but it does make one feel good to see a man on the firing line get "bull's eyes," one after another. Then it's their team just as much as any other, and they should take enough interest in it to back them up and know what they are doing. The team works hard and gives up everything for the Academy and should be repaid by a loyal support. The Rifle Team is but a representative of the greatest thing in the Navy. her Ordnance and Gunnery. ln the long run the time spent on the range is of more benefit to the individual than all other activities outside the section room. Very few appreciate this fact, however. Not only do many fail to benefit them- selves by actually working on the range, but also fail to derive real pleasure by not attending the meets. With most of the Brigade it is: "Fire when you are ready, Gridleyg l'm going to the ball game." --.. ...A The Range 327 i "Q ' 'iiimiwii'-V'-iff"1'1".4:-wsun W wafrzf.-gs..:-1:-.-.1-:i5:'m.':1,Lu,3f::-i:-1-'--s.i.scf:mi--.ua-.g.:..'-m,.-.human-.V'- ' .N ' L' "-:5'l,- ,i i 'i3:'?r1 -.fjiffgwr q . ,, -X V . .,.., , .mm 9 . s, s, -rv o 4,-my-.p,.1.,, '- fitilrsisf-.liiifxl?i??iifF5.w.l if' , , "M . z, Mfifri -g5rgf,,3:m.-. ,, , X, . rv.

These facts demonstrate how popular the game is here. The natural result of such universal love of the sport has been that we always have a mighty good team.

It was at Boston. "Dug" makes his way to the buffet and having nothing else to do, sits down. He orders supper and drinks. He eats supper and orders a few more drinks. Yes, Boston mixes very beautiful Manhattans. Then "Dug" concludes that a Martini would be the thing. But just now the world seems to be made up of skating rinks. A dark, curly headed individual in tuxedo and high white collar approaches "Dug's" table. For some reason or other "Dug" recognizes in him an old friend. "Dug" rises, stands at rigid attention and very respectfully says: "Good evening, shirl Sit down, won't shoo. please, and have a drink with me?" The stranger with a ten- yard smile on him clears his throat and says: "No, tank you, boss: yuh see, l'se jest a waiter around here on de job."

Such men of l9l 4 are Corn, Dickinson, Gearing, O'Brien and Slingluff. The majority of these have since plebe year played more or less important parts in the Christmas or June Week Shows, and each year has added to their popularity with the Brigade and its friends who have seen them in their favorite pastime. Others, equally as good, did not yield to the lure of the footlights quite so early in their Naval careers. Corn's splendid voice immediately won for him a solo in his plebe year, and his vocal work has been of the highest quality ever since. A quartet without Corn's tenor would be incomplete to say the least. And who can forget Dickinson in his role second class year? The "last of the Slingsbysu had nothing on him for a perfect portrayal of a "limey" fop. Gearing, who was an unknown quantity in the theatrical world until second class year, immediately sprang E into favor and captivated his audience by his sing- ing "She Wore Silk Stockings and a Smile." O'Brien deserves credit not only for the parts he himself has played, but for his indispensable work 4 l l 340 E i querabers in training the choruses. For the last two years he has undertaken this task and has acquitted himself most creditably, as anyone who has seen the dancing of the chorus will attest. On all occasions he has played the part of a soubrette and his natural ability and qualifications have made him invaluable to the cast. Slingluflvs naturally pious waysC?j caused him to fill a long- felt need, and no one who saw him as the deacon in "The Belle and the Briganclsu will forget how naturally he acted his part. He can also fill out the musical side of a chorus to good advantage. Two other members of the cast who deserve special mention are De Roode and Wotherspoon. They have aided materially in 1 . . ' v s ,- ff' Qld 15 ,v-1-P,-1. -.14-1... 1 .llx flfaking all the plays of the last two years such complete successes. De Roode's SPOON can evoke a roar of laughter from most anybody Even members of the Dis Smile faintly at his funny stunts, and that alone would qualify him as a first-class C0median The hardest work has not by any " means, been done by the stars.

I lu i i A f 1 A ,f 152 . f 5 Il I' look to their laurels. ln all A 'fl' ' A xg l 341 the plays the work of the chorus has been of a high class. On hot afternoons in May these "ballet girls" spend their recreation hours practicing the most difficult of steps. Wilson, G. B., Perry, Larson. Wills, Bayley, Ferrell, Ray, Creighton and Yeatman are some of the members who have brought the chorus up to the present high standard. Even "Fat" Mecum appeared one afternoon for practice, but one was enough to convince him that there are easier ways of reducing weight. "Fat" was qualified in every respect to make an admirable "chorus lady," but being built for pleasure rather than speed, his one fault was his inability to raise both feet off the deck at the same time. The Masqueraders made quite a depart- ure from the usual midyear show First Class year by giving a performance of HH. M. S. Pinafore" instead of a minstrel show. Exceeding by far the expec- tations of even the most sanguine, the performance was the most brilliant shipman O'Brien cannot be success given by the Masquer- aders since l9l4 has been i .

Without Prof. Zim- merman's aid the Masquer- aders could hardly exist, and his ability is especially valu- able in a musical production. The entire management of the play devolved on Mid'n O'Brien, and the perfect pre- cision and smoothness with which the show was produced is in a large part due to many weeks of ceaseless and untir- ing preparation on his part. 342 I P I . 'N ' S., f x ' fi AY ' , 1 , , His judgment in selecting the princi- K 'i , '. -'4' ' . " M, pals is one example of his fitness to . , 5 manage the Nlasqueraders. Besides , i A. .

As "Sir Joseph Porter," Dickinson was at his best and captivated his audience no less than did Clearing, who so ably played the part of "Capt. Corcoran." Corn, as "Ralph Rackstrawf' had a difficult part but played it well, and his songs were especially well sung. The parts of "Josephine" and "Buttercup" were well taken care of by O'Brien and R. O. Davis, and even the girls could get a few tips on captains' daughters and bum- boat women from them. "Dick Deadeyef' who was Smith, F. B., had the requisites of the villain, and succeeded in producing the desired effect on the audience. Perry, as "Cousin Hehe," was a "scream," and Creighton, Collins and Wotherspoon lent a sea-going air to the whole performance. The chorus supported the cast in a way which showed hard and conscientious train- ing and added to the snap which char- acterized the entire performance. The stage setting couldn't have been more realistic and was "just like the book says," while the electrical effects re- minded one of a Broadway playhouse and showed the benefits of our course , in Electricity. "Frank" O'Brien will put on "The Serenade" this june Week. To the efforts of O'Brien the Brigade will be indebted for another round of sincere enjoyment and a happy evening of good laughs. He does everything, and to him we take off our hats in admiration and gratitude. A9 JMC 343 .QM .xi 5 ,. Y-.F Our Heri tage-The Sea QELE EL 'C HE Chapel Service is unique. It has a touch ol the "Church Militant" not usually found in places of worship. Not that it lacks in religious solemnity-none can say that. But the marching of the Brigade to the seats, the promenade of the five-striper to his throne, the suppressed excitement and craning of necks in the balconies, all mark the Chapel Service as "different" Not the least impressive portion of the service is the singing of Hymn 306, for the sound of the anthem never fails to sober the most blasd man in Chapel. But when it comes to "God be with you till we meet again"-wellfwe all feel rather silent, The service is eminently characteristic of the in- stitution: simple and devoid of ceremonial, forceful, efcienl-and withal, impressive. The Academy is for- tunate in possessing such an able speaker as Chaplain Cassard His work among the Midshipmen, together with his helpful sermons, has endeared him to them all.

The Associa- tion is also responsible for the con- venientlittlehandbook-,"Reef Points," without which no midshipman's outfit is complete. The Y. M. C. A. offers an excellent course in Bible Study. A new cle- parture in this work was launched this year in the form of one large class for all those interested under the able leadership of Chaplain Cassarcl. His efforts and good results are deeply appreciated by the Brigade. The quotation, "ln the beginninghGod" is the basis of the work of the Y. M. C. A. By a useful combination of the esthetic and practical it does much toward unifying the Brigade. Like all other Y. M. C. A.'s it is non-sectarian and the weekly speakers aim simply at the application of fundamental spiritual truths to everyday problems. The reading room is amply furnished with peri- odicals of various descriptions, including many current, technical and scientific publications. The addition of Service papers and sectional newspapers makes it a well equipt lounging ,place for spare moments.

Present Commission 'Zin lppreciation OW I am sitting here at my table with the partner of my four years'Iife at the Academy. A certain veil of retrospection closes around me until I am entirely enveloped and borne away on the swift wings of Memory to the Land of Yesterday. I travel again the four- year trail, and it seems to lead thro a valley I 'P 4 -P' ' f' ' I of sunshine strewn with the many incidents of Academy days.. Only the many good times remain to bid me a welcome, because the trials and petty annoyances have faded away into obscurity under the influence of the many happy hours I have spent with my classmates. such as those nights in Berlin. But more treasured than the recollection of these little parties are the many friendships I have formed during the close association of four years. Could I ever have formed these friendships else- where, and would they have meant the same to me under different circumstances? No, I think it would have been impossible. It is the fact that I have suffered the same hardships, enjoyed the same privileges, and done the same toil that binds me so inseparably to them. It is such circumstances as these that lay bare a man's character and show of what he is made. ls it strange then that one man should display such admiration for another as to become his life-long friend? In another week I will have my diploma, the most coveted possession I will ever have. Then I will become an Officer in the American Navy. I will go out into the Service and become an integral part of a great Hghting machine that protects the interests of the greatest country in the world. And I ask myself, "Will I be equal to the occasion? Can I stand on my own feet and look the world squarely in the face without so much as a single flinch?" Somewhere within the depths of my soul a small wee voice tells me that I can. And this same spirit will tell every classmate the same thing because it is the Spirit of l9l4: to do justice to the occasion, no matter what it may bring. This spirit is what has given l9l4 a unity of thought and concerted action in every step it has taken. And as I near the close of my reverie, there pre- sents itself the image of the man who has instilled this spirit into the Class, who has proved himself a capable leader and a skilled diplomat even under the most trying circumstances. I-Ie has had his shoulder to the wheel for every project that would be for the good of the class. This man is our President, Ralph Otis Davis. May the future hold in store for him nothing but great honor and success! ThreeTimeuouiof Four ,, 1 351 It was ,Iune Week ., its U, """"' ' v N 3 ' RESH paint. Clean flags. New awnings. Flowers. girls. Congressmen! june Week opens with a roar on the day of the Army-Navy game. The stands are aflame with color and animation, a regiment of camera men surrounds the baselines. the goat prances gayly to Anchors Aweigh, a thunderous round of applause greets the rival tearrs. Annapolis' greatest contest is on. Fiercely the fight is waged. till the sun seems to pause in his tracks in sheer amazement. A brief two hours. and it is over. the game of a year. The stands empty as if by magic, and each man sees the yard with new eyes as he points it all out to the folks from home. ln the evening comes the West Point hop. In addition to the usual splendor of charming girls and Navy blue there is the picturesque touch of gray lent to the scene by our gallant brothers from the Point. The baccalaureate sermon is preached by the chaplain on Sunday morning. For the last time in the year the Brigade forms for Sunday inspection. It is another milestone for the first class, their last opportunity to assemble as a class for divine service. This is brought home with redoubled force when, with bowed head and contrite spirit, they sing "God be with you till we meet again." Hard is the heart and callous the mind of a being who does not receive an inward wrench at this impressive ceremony, and who does not realize that he is taking part in an exercise which can never be duplicated. Monday dawns hot and close. Undismayed the first class don oHicer's whites, the underclassmen struggle into their prosaic midshipman whites. and all 1 - .7 354 A 1 hw ' vi . ,i . ,di ' ' . K -'mi H W O ,F r .4'.,.i,.-11 4'-' - ' " fi F9 .-nan!---H .Q ,.. -4 proceed to the parade ground under arms. Here they stand at parade rest while the board of visitors turns out, breakfasts, and drives leisurely to the reviewing stand. Suddenly Un" guns belch forth, the Brigade presents arms, and lo! the Board of Visitors is officially received. Back to the armory goes the Brigade, only to break out the light artillery. After some two rounds or less. visitors, judges and performers alike tire of the warlike drama: battles shouldn't be fought in hot weather anyhow. Hence why worry if the last company fires their rammer over the sea wall, or forgets to unlock the brakes? ln the afternoon one finds himself the prime mover of a sterling pine tree. called by courtesy an oar, or else he is tucked under a thwart in a knockabout to serve as ballast, or perchance he goes across the Severn and fires steel-capped bullets into Chesapeake Bay while an optimistic marker shows a white disc to the astonished board. After such indisputable proofs of professional prowess comes a brief respite during which those who are fussing anywhere short of Camp Parole avail themselves of a hasty liberty. In the evening with "a great fanfare of trumpets" and brass buttons we hold a dress parade. For an hour or more we stand gazing into the blistering eye of the western sun while some kind-hearted old lady explains to Gish why the D. A. R. condescends to let him have his name scratched on their hardware. And so it goes: each day the midshipman feels more like an exhibition monkey. each day he seems more like Dewey to his doting parents, and each day he looms greater in the thoughts of la demoisclle. June Week is, however, not "all work and no play." On Monday and Tuesday evenings the Masqueraders present their play. Here the military aspect of our life drops off like a cloak, and latent histrionic ability is uncovered to the astonished gaze of the multitude. If the truth were known, however. the aid of 355 -i 'Q the most expert fussers is requisitioned to adjust properly the intricate feminine gear used in the production. How well they do it makes us blush! The most picturesque social function of the year is the Superintendent's garden party, which is held on Wednesday evening. His house and grounds are transformed into a veritable fairyland, with gleaming lights, soft music and gentle breezes. The function is strictly a first class rate, the underclassmen being permitted to look on from afar with field glasses until about 9.30 p. m., when they must scamper off to bed. Thursday is the day of the last parade, and mingled are the sentiments of the Brigade at that time. While all are intently watching diaphanous gowns cross the lowering rays of old King Sol, the second battalion reports "l5 men absent, sir!" and the first class realize that they are back numbers, while the famous lVlid'n john Doe, Second Class, swells visibly, to mutual discomfort of dress suit and wearer. Thursday night is the fusser's pinnacle. On that evening the first class hold their exclusive German. none but second classmen being allowed even to look on at the proceedings. Each first classman presents U10 girl with an armful of roses and treats her to a ride in one of Chaney's best sea-going cabs. Once at the ballroom he leads her into a maze of shifting figures and gleaming swords, and bestows favors upon her with a recklessness which thoroughly indicates what happened to surplus reserved pay plus mess entrance fee. At approximately two a. m., same man saunters through Crabtown lustily singing "No more rivers." Friday, June Sth! For the first class the supreme day, for the plebe, the release from bondage, for all, a step upward! The battalions are drawn up in awe-inspiring array. The first class and the holders of pink tickets are seated around some national Hgure, listening to his carefully prepared address. Quickly, then, the coveted sheepskins are distributed, 356 .n. i ig i I n l V.. T ,iq , Ll. . . , A ' , l ' 5 'rvnvrrvr - A. ' ... '!'1"?lin and it is over! The graduates gyrate happily out of the armory, minus hats. and "mingle with their friends," while the newly created youngsters hold a truly American war dance around the Herndon monument. That evening brings the June Ball, a graceful farewell tribute to the gradu- ates, given by the men who are to fill their places. It is the largest and grandest spectacle of its sort in the country. Gray old admirals, cocky lieutenants, cute little ensigns with their new swabs, important Hrst classmen, and awkward youngsters vie with each other to secure the smiles of the prettiest aggregation of girls in the world. Unfortunate indeed is the man who has never danced be- neath the bewitching and kaleidoscopic colors of the armory spot lights, or who has never spent a dance or two on the sea wall, pointing out the glimmering lights of the distant practice squadron. Many the groan and many the sigh when, after running all the way in from Murray Hill, one has to finish packing at two a. m., in order to have a few moments with "her" later in the morning. This day, Saturday, marks the demise of June Week. Each midshipman slings his household supplies over his back, ties two blue caps around his neck, balances a strong box on his head, tucks a toothbrush and razor in his mouth and proceeds to the point of embarkation. Nothing can compare with the touching scenes there enacted. The fare- wells given, and observed, are far more harrowing than is the case in actual warfare. Every mother is sure she'll never see her boy again, fathers sniff and look distrustfully at those damn tin pans in which their sons plan to see the world, and sister fthe other fellow's sisterb feels quite sure she'll die before she has time to receive his first letter from Queenstown. At last the terrible moment arrives- a bell jingles, a shrill toot, a more or less ragged 4 N yell, and all that is left of ilurie Week is a moist handkerchief and a foaming, bubbling wake behind a grimy 1tt e tug. 357 '4' - r 'WWF' 'ff .. : 'A ' A f'2ilif+i?fl'ff'-"IPX 35,561-'ISN Lan 6 L 3 952: 1:i:"5-la, .f I .5.,asv.f..wi :ff ,I .,.-9? mizexz ' Y N' -P Iwi ,f 41:21 hfgilxyhldwzgifigv M r 1 7 1. we 5 F JJ A 9,5 ?.5'f'A"'Q!-egg? .nw .,. ..f3+fn.'a..w- aw .ll I ' -,,.,x, -, ,., , ,-.

Naval Academy in I86I did not present the mag- nificent spectacle it does in l9l4, but the little old dingy buildings contained within their walls many associations dear to the hearts of the midshipmen of the past and pass- ing generations. All is changed now, and the only objects in the landscape familiar to the "oldsters" are the gate by which the grounds are entered from the town, the Herndon monument and the memorial to the Passed Midshipmen who lost their lives when the ill-omened brig "Summers" turned turtle in the Gulf of Mexico. The "Summers" was commanded by Captain Semmes of "Alabama" fame. Yes, the same old trees are standing in the grounds, 1 but where is the old gas house behind which so many - stolen smokes were indulged in and where radical differ- ences in opinion were settled with lists? . Captain Blake was the Superintendent in l86l. His son Homer was soon to command the "Hatteras" and she was to be sunk by the "Alabama" off Gal- veston. Blake fought her until the muzzles of her guns were barely above the water. Commander, afterwards Admiral C. R. P. Rodgers, the man with "the velvet hand and iron claw," was Commandant of Midshipmen. He was one of the most courteous and elegant gentlemen it was ever my good fortune to see. The Midshipmen fairly worshiped and at the same time feared him. One of his favorite forms of punishment was to invite the delinquent to his house, offer him a seat and a glass of wine, ask with the greatest interest about the health of the unfortunate one's parents, and gradually lead the conversation around to the particular crime in question. The poor Midshipman would come from the "Presence" vowing that Commander Rodgers was the kindest friend he had in the world, but at the same time he felt as though someone had been working on him with a spiked club. No Midshipman was ever known to be so thirsty as to want a second glass of "Old Carp's" wine. The Midshipmen in that day as a rule were much . . younger than those of the pres- ., I . ent time-many of them were p T Q. only fourteen years of age-and A ,i 'W , k,,, ,Wm,,,,': ,T ,,,,, ,.,.,,. some of them were very small ff for their years. Unless one I could call a laughable joke per- -21' A ?Ef:T:Q32'. g petrated without malice "Haz- ing" there was nothing of that kind known at Annapolis. The FT 'gg '5 rf? first and second classmen 39 is would not have tolerated any 384 rough treatment or humiliation inflicted on a youngster. The second classmen wore long uniform coats when they went on leave and frequently gave them to third classmen when they returned. If a Plebe felt himself a little too consequential it did not take one of these third classmen many minutes, with the assist- ance of brown paper shoulder straps and bands, false whiskers, spectacles, and a sword. to promote himself into a lieutenancy and in the gloaming order the fresh one to take some ridiculous note to the feared and dignified Commandant. On one occasion this sport was varied by sending the pompous boy an invitation to dine with the Superintendent on the day that official expected the Secretary of the Navy to be his guest. Sometimes the bogus lieutenant would throw a scare into the "oldsters" by suddenly appearing behind the gas house where they were stealing a smoke. The battalion was not composed of the soldierly looking young men of to-day. We wore double-breasted jackets with turn-down collars and big gold foul anchors -a small silver anchor adorned the cap. The jacket, when not at drill or on duty, was worn open--and a large black silk handkerchief tied in a sailor knot served as a necktie. We looked like sailors, and bless our sweet Htarry toplights and topgallant eyebrows," many of us proved ourselves to be good sailors, too. The Midshipmen's "Hops" were held in the old Mess Hall, and those for the fourth class on the berth deck of the old "Constitution" l mean no reflection on the young ladies of Annapolis when l say their grandmothers were very pretty girls. One very handsome belle always had a beau in the first class and one in the fourth, in fact she had two beaux to her string. When asked what she did with them, she replied that she "played with the Plebe and flirted with the first class man." But, alas! she finally married a rich banker and ceased to worry over the amount of the allotment a midshipman could afford to make his wife. The fourth class were always brought ashore for lnfantry drill. Major Lockwood, afterwards Brigadier General Lockwood, commanded the battalion. Unfortunately he instructed the young gentlemen never to make a motion to carry out a command until the last sound of the order had escaped from the ,Iulian Murray Spencer Major was a stammerer and one day while walking backwards in front of the Battalion he gave the order to Charge! intending to halt them when they got near him. However, at the critical moment he commenced to stammer and could repeat only "Hal l-la! Ha!" and before he could finish the word the battalion had run over him and also over the sea wall. Guns, uniforms, midshipmen and all plunged into the waters. There were many sincere and affectionate friendships between northern and southern midshipmen, but in an evil hour for the country 385 lips of the officer giving it. Unhappily the X - . - ,, x T .

Within a few months those boys were to be shooting at each other. There was one incident in that dreadful war which goes to show the high sense of honor possessed by graduates of Annapolis. Although many men from the south com- manded powerful war vessels on various sta- tions, every one of them brought his ship into a northern port and turned her over to the government before sending in his resignation. Only as illustrative of the wonderful re- sourcefulness of the Annapolis man l would call attention to the fact that the southern ofhcers who went south found no navy yards and no war ships. They went into the forests ' with axes and hewed out timbers, and they went into the highways and byways collect- ing scrap iron and old rails, and with these rough materials they built ironclads in corn- Helds, and very good ironclads they were, too, if we may judge by their performances in many desperate conflicts. These officers found only obsolete smooth bore guns,and one of them, Lieutenant Brooke, made a rifle gun which was thought by ord- nance officers on both sides to be the most powerful weapon used during the war. An Annapolis man was the first to use the ironclad ram in actual combat fthe "Manassas," Oct. l2th, l86l, at the head of the passes of the Mississippi riverj. Another Annapolis man first used the submarine boat fthe "David" at Charles- tonb. They were the first also to use the torpedo boat and the submarine mine. 4' William Thomas Sampson ' www ON THE CALL LIST If you're waking, call me early, call me early, watchman, dear, For l must bone the Gunnery, the book that costs so dear: It is the dearest book, watchman, I e'er expect to see, For Armstrong guns on pages score are much too rich for-me, ,,, ,,,,,,,,.

Only the 'fpfgae L 5' ll I X'1,f.,:qg' blatant note of "late blast" penetrates his slumber- if ll qw ing consciousness. A glance at his much battered " Q. l .sly though faithful alarm clock confirms his first wild conjecture. He bestirs himself with a groan and leaps frantically to the icy deck, shuddering with appre- hension and dismay. Shoes and trousers are hastily donned, and he flees down the corridor with the remainder of his apparel in his hands, adorning his person as he speeds along. Before falling in, he rubs each shoe on the back of the opposite trouser leg and brushes his shoulders furiously with both hands. His arrival has just preceded the O. Cfs inspection. The culprit finds himself fixed by the cold, disapproving eye of his superior. but, nothing daunted, returns the gaze with a look of bland innocence. However, noting the unbending attitude . of the heartless inquisitor, his expression changes to one of grief-stricken pleading. It avails nothing.

Still fuddled with sleep, only a few seconds out of his downy couch, already the twenty-Hfth de- merit has descended upon his luckless head. He does not rally. He is beaten. Weighted with official clis- approbation, he marches lifelessly along with the ' others, a pitiful figure of woe and discouragement. The sun seems not to shine For the rest of the day he is rhino.
