Aff.: Clixztutihz E can remember when this department was known under the name of Discipline-but the change in name has wrought no change in heart -and we wonder if the first name, in its verbal sense, does not after all represent the function of this combination. From the standpoint of the Naval Profession this is the most important department with which we deal, but the average midshipman Cof whom we fre- quently speakj never regards it seriously until he sees his name on the pap sheet with its sequel on the conduct grade for the month-and the grade bothers him the most. First Class Year conduct grades are a thing of the past, and the importance of the Discipline Department in this regard diminishes in proportion. The Executive Department is aided and abetted in its ravages by a species known as "stripers," and upon them falls all the unpleasantness from both above and below-what striper has not at times thrown up his hands and yelled "Whats the use?" , 13 26171 5 6125 .if --nl n IIllIf""""' , ,i W,Wrzwfnrrmyyp' Mlkidiiffhw A" 'WWearr1r1ffs11WE2'1Z,fy1, .LL lh vn...

Whatever the other departments forget or fear to teach is tackled by Seamanship as a matter of course. One great advantage in this branch is the multiplicity of authorities+Knight, Rules of the Road, and the Navy Regs pale into insignificance in comparison with the opinions of each and -ij-'f----'ffr-'fr' . N In A . .I V every ofhcer. Having absorbed concentrated In- ternational Law, the essence of Practical and Theoretical Seamanship, the essentials of Military Law, and a 'A ' few incidentals, a midshipman is sent out into the service to face the eternal question- "What do?" 15 Y Ordnance QBriJnance ann Gunnery RDNANCE-the most important of our professional studies-for a battle- ship without guns is like "a song without words and music. " to quote Cy Lyle. The department snares the cagey Second Classmen, puffed up with pride, convinces them in one lesson that "resistance is useless," then pours oil of fat marks into the gaping shell wounds. First Class Year there is a terrible change of heart, aspect and treatment. Lieutenants junior Grade become vivi- sectionists, members of the Inquisition, and Keepers of the Holy Horrors. Erstwhile gentle-looking torpedoes reveal their dread interiors fthe Service is crazy about Plate IO4J and mines show hitherto unsuspected internal complications. The year ends in a blaze of glory-range finders, 320-page pamphlets, and specially- M prepared-for- the-use-of - midshipmen range tables chase each other in a series of semi-empirical nightmares and we leave with a muzzle velocity equal to the rate of propagation of l light in ether and a fervent prayer that God will be with us if we meet i again. 17 J :.:..fi33-'lf 1-1:-::,,,,.., .... ., 'xv 1. 1 c?V' i l l l e l l ahigatinn AVIGATION does not become impossible until Second Term, First Class Year, although it is always improbable. Most of us are of the opinion that "the science of conducting a ship from one position on the earth to another" is decidedly shady. We are not yet exactly sure of finding our position unless we already know it to a reasonable degree of certainty-and then-why take sights and fool with C-W's to find out something we already know? lt seems useless, but the Regs require it. One rule sticks with us-that if a sight is taken in the morning or the afternoon it is better to guess at the Lati- tude rather than the Longitude, and l i the contrary holds at noong all of which is very simple and seems to solve our difhculties in a remarkable manner. The casualties credited to Nav are few and we are duly grateful. The department seems to realize that we have about as good a chance of being right as has the gougeg at any rate they give us the benefit of the doubt. A 19 M H Mulnrfuq -.M Lf'-fifff WWF?-1 .

Y ,..,--4 21 But there are other things-johnny Gow has never been sneered at, and the powers-that4be help him who looks lightly .upon Turbines. Mech Drawing has its share in thinning out the class rolls and Descriptive Geom- etry puts in its few kicks. The Steam drills are more or less of a passe nature. Every engine and pump, ancient and modern-especially ancient-is dumped into the Model Room and the midshipman is set religiously to work' finding out just why it goes round. Such researches make him feel perfectly at home when he goes into the engine room of a regular ship and they smooth his way into a path of roses. w ! N fe We-'U f 15, x lx , 1 J lk ' NM ..

The Plebe is started at the bottom, rushed through all the various branches which have the slightest claim to being elementary, and the table set for the delightful invention of Sir Isaac Newton, known as Calculus. Truly Youngster Year is a nightmare- Differentials, Integrals, Analytical Geometry and what not. After one grand finale featuring Mechanics, and its relative subjects, Second Class Year, the Math Profs turn the Midshipmen over to the tender mercies of the Nav Department, and it is well that the parting does not come any later in his busy career. The Math Department, however, leaves a warm spot in the heart of each Midshipman. because they seem to realize that they are teaching impos- sible subjects and mark accordingly- we quake to contemplate what would happen were it otherwise. 23 gfzzjce Qlilettrical Qiingineering anh ipbpsins 4 E are all agreed on one thing-the ,juice Department gets the much- coveted oil stove. The experimental research work indulged in by some of the profs leads them apart from the circuits of least resistance into the realms of mystery, whence they produce a series of utterly in- comprehensible exams. Some of us can remember when the Skinny Department had the reputation of never bilging a man single-handed. lt was all hearsay on our part, however, for things changed before we plunged into the death struggle which lasted through three bloody years. It is well that the Plebes do not have to grapple with this Department, for, were such the case, we shiver to contemplate the additional casualties to be 1 noted on each class roll. lf there has been an exam in this Department in the last three years, on which the marks have not had to be raised, it has escaped the notice of the Board of Supervisors in Smoke Hall. As we near the end, however, we feel that our struggles have not all been in vain, for most of us have learned the difference between a motor and a generator and we are aware of the existence of an intangible something called A.C. 25 i A i 4 6 -.....1.,... ,wWW,wm7TTW,mKWHw,WW . ... ,,., , A . .

Long before Plebe Summer is well under way, evening lectures in Memo- rial Hall, and assignments in the Library, introduce him to those mem- bers of the English staff who are dramatically or studiously inclined, and it might be mentioned that the latter are in the majority. One of the members of the staff has been heard to State that he thought that without exception we had the best high school English course in the country. We should at least feel Hattered, but some of us like to feel a triiie more mature than that. lt takes the average midshipman the 27 rest of his course to recover from the effects of "Hill," administered Plebe Year, Who would call a social event a function or speak of Craig's open field running as the feature of the game? English is the bane of a Plebe's exist- enceg as a Youngster, Naval History gives him a chance: and Second Class Year, Hamlet repays him for all the drudgery of the past.

Ask Hen Bagby. Remember the one and only exam we took, when Dr, Heiner with tears in his eyes implored us to write something about each question even if we knew nothing about it, because he had to give us a mark. To say that the subject is not interesting would be the height of misrepre- sentation. lt is interesting-very much so. The demonstrations of First Aid furnished abundant material for the eHorts of our leading wits and the lecture H' i on "The Evil Effects of Alcohol and Tobacco" was a masterpiece. Whether or not the Gymnasium is a part of this department we have never been able to find outg if it is, the P-Works administered are in a class by themselves. Time was when First Class gym drills were fun-then they became work-now they are tor- ture. Death alone can be the next step-O june, why dost thou linger?

AKE a I0 per cent. solution of Thomas Edison, four grams of Vernon Castle, add some tincture of Willie Capron, season to taste with essence of Philo Gubb, stir well and rlgagnify to the nth power, and the result will be a feeble synthetic imitation of Boyd u us. . Without doubt he has had more weird adventures and misadventures to record in the halls of fame than the fevered imagination of a de Quincey could ever dream. He made his debut Plebe June Week, when a moonlight night found him Hoating peacefully over the placid waters of the Severn, long after the silvery melody of taps had melted into silence. Two years later he was still at large, but, turning his activities from crew to track, made a successful escape from Jaime Limbs by strategic use of his long legs, after several laps around the terrace. Despite having nearly electrocuted Craig in pursuing his electrical experiments, he persisted in them, and First Class cruise his toasters were the bane of the "Missouri's " electricians. At mealtime they always had to start an extra dynamo to supply him with toast. Incidentally his calculations as to the required Ifr generally had disastrous effects on the gun-deck , ,,.. , , ,..,,, fuses. To improve our fire-drill, he left his stove burning one night, - V, nearly destroying the ship before the cruise had even started. Alec began to fuss Youngster Year. In order to be perfectly impartial, he would escort a whole seminary around the Yard, point- ing out the points of interest with a flow of Howery verbiage that had the professional guide green with envy. Later he became more individual, and now rarely drags more than two at a time. From much reading of the "Anniston Hot-Blast," Alec has become adept in a fiery oratory that displays itself on the slightest provocation. He would argue with a I2-inch gun, often displaying more knowledge of fact than of tact. He is generally right, though, for he is savvy, and his brains and self-reliance will give him a good start towards a successful career. "Now, I'd like to say something about that." 54 Ciarlplz Ciiraig Raleigh, North Carolina A HNevvyU HGOVH llRabbit,l Buzzardg Football C4, 3, 2, U5 Football Numer- als, Football N CQ, U9 Acting Captain Football Team, Army Game QU, Class Baseball, Class Ger- X man Committee. EVVY can talk with knowledge of events happening in Annapolis years before most of us even knew that there was such a place. Nevertheless he says that he doesn't care much for the Navy, but just wants to go back to Raleigh and settle down. We can't blame him, for we have seen the reason. He was so hard hit that he couldn't bear the thought of making First Class cruise with the rest of us, so he simply went on leave, while we poor unfortunates heaved coal beneath blazing tropic suns. Craig can turn his hand to nearly anything. Second Class spring he tried, with the aid of Alec, to wrest the cross-terrace championship from the jimmylegs, but they relayed on him, with the inevitable ending. Last fall, abetted by Billy Schott, he tried to break into the perfumed ranks of the tea-hounds, with disastrous results to the crockery. In football he won distinction by stepping into Miles' shoes, after the latter was unfortunately incapacitated, and filling them until they ran over. When he gets a football under his arm, and his eyes commence to pop out, rw 1 y ,I , it takes a mighty fast man to catch him, and then he often gets free. He has an unconquerable aversion to bugs, both human and the garden variety. It was especially noticeable when Horky jones tried to lead him to the altar Plebe Year, but even then he finally fell victim to the social wiles of Alec. If you want to start an argument, merely cast some slanderous aspersions on the Germans in his presence, and there will be excite- ment enough to last a week. Despite the fact that he calls the Secnav by his first name, he is strongly opposed to the deteriorating influence t of grape-juice. Carlyle never worries, and why should he, for he can't help "throwing a natural" when he gets out into the fleet. "Say, what language do they speak in Italy?" "'l"h'ow 'em back, Stud!" 55 jliilnntgumerp Meigs Qlger , Annapolis, Maryland ffMonty,, HMO!-1k,, UGena,Y ONK ALGER is a most unusual combination. He is the picture of health, the soul of mischief, the most non-reg man in the First Battalion, and at the same time, level- headed and savvy. Monk came to us from St. -Iohn's, where he picked up the elements of infantry, but after he gave "left shoulder arms," Plebe Summer, "Buck" announced that no more ex.-St. Johnnies need apply. Monk and jimmy have formed an irresistible pair since Plebe Year, when they used to haunt the corridors after taps and tear the pajamas off innocent wanderers. As time went on they made progress along the same lines: whenever any destruction was discovered, the one best bet was-Monk on the job, and Jimmy on watch. In Gibraltar, on Youngster Cruise, it was, of course, the twain that violated sacred regulations by venturing into forbidden territory. Gena is a red mike, and a proud one. In spite of predictions to the contrary, and earnest efforts to bring his wandering footsteps into rhythm with music, he has remained rougefor four years, not excepting his few sacrifices on the altars of tried and trusted friends. He has great ability as an "argifyer." He takes to it naturally and with eagerness, and to get the best of him you have to go some- and then some more! He studies with the nonchalance with which he collects demerits, and seems to acquire knowledge in the same ratio, ' which marks him as something of a savoir. He showed this Youngster -. Year when sickness very nearly caused him to drop back a class. Monk is athletic. though not an athlete. He is good at swim- ming, and would undoubtedly have made good on varsity teams if he had a bit more weight. After four years of careful observation we can stamp Gena as a standard Navy product with a large factor of safety. With a flat trajectory and a small coeflicient of form, he is heading right for the mark, and his initial velocity bids fair to get him there. 56 Buzzard, Soccer Numeralsg Football Numerals. james Percival Qllumptnn New Haven, Connecticut ! - "Jimmie" "Wicked" Buzzard: Lacrosse Team Q2, ID: Lacrosse Numer- alsg LNTQ Soccer Numerals, Football Numeralsg Reina Squad. IMMY is just about the same jimmy that we remember seeing during Plebe Summer. If he ever had a serious thought, he doesn't let it bother him any, and never lets anyone know about it. He hasn't grown much, and he still has that round cheruloic face. But appearances are deceitful! He is wooden, but always pulls through on the weather side. Hence we suspect that if he ever felt inclined to bone he would upset a few calculations in this vicinity. He made the first two cruises with the rest of the gang, and claims that Antwerp is a mighty fine town, and that the banquets they give there are most commendable. In the middle of second class year he went to sea for a month because he couldn't keep a straight face anywhere, least of all at a fencing drill. After that, sea duty didn't appeal to him, so he stayed at home when we were enjoying life on the Pacific Coast. While a member of Company A, he received very con- vincing proof that Doyle had the straight dope on this Navy. james is just 100 per cent. nerve and sand. He is one of the kind who have to keep going all the time. With him, it's class football in the fall, soccer in the winter, and lacrosse in the spring. He is just about as good a man as ever faced the Indians with a lacrosse stick for the Navy. His real sport is skylarking with Monty Alger. He would prefer that to anything in the world save feeding his face. The powers-that-be did not realize what they were wishing on the Duty Officers when they put that pair over the D. O.'s bedroom. ' He has not yet appeared on the ballroom Hoor and seldom looks at a girl, but that is the reason why we are suspicious of some little lady up in Connecticut, and when we hear of her we won't be greatly surprised. It won't be long before jimmy settles down to the serious life, and it is then that we hope to see him deliver the goods that we are all getting ready to pass out. JI Slkuhert Qhair Qtntrep Marietta, Georgia "Nemo" Buzzard. OBERT ADAIR-a native of Georgia-his nickname achieved through a marked resem- blance to that sometime character of the funny sections-Little Nemo. The name stuck-so did Robert-and he is to-day a fitting successor to that other dreamer. Nemo is one of the few among us-this is the usual line of hop-who never study. Thirty minutes a day is sufficient time for any and all assignments-he need never worry about his 2.5. He early came into conflict with his Divisional Officer-it must have been Youngster Year- over the rights of a Third Classman in re tobacco. The inevitable result followed-two months of Nemo's time gone in sweet communion with the gentle wavelets lapping the Reina's rusty sides. His life aiioat taught him two things-the first, the location, approach and percentage of safety of every smoking parlor known to midshipmeng the second, poetry. No one objects to a mild attack of temperament, so long as it is not inflicted on an already long-suffering Corps-but when he insisted on reading his gulf to all who entered-the time had come, as we say in French. No, gentle reader, he hasn't published 'em in book form, at least to date. Nemo is Grand Sachem of the High and Mighty Order of Red Mikes-the cruelty lies in its being his own fault. We can't vouch for his actions on September Leave, but in all his four years among us we have never seen him in feminine company. Nemo was made Regimental Ordnance Ofiicer in the first mess- the commission lasted during the Cruise, where the general disposition of the real Ordnance Officers to do their own work prevented Robert from showing his real efficiency. Give Nemo a good book, plenty of the Navy Standard Bull and an easy chair-he is content. Give him a hard task+-you may be content that it will be well done. ' 58 Iaenrp Innings helps Malone, New York "Chink" "Henri" "Canuck" Buzzard. E may be small, but he is certainly the biggest little man we ever saw. His swagger, deep voice and confidence all tend to inspire with immense respect the man unwise enough not to stand from under at the sight of his diminutive but threatening fist. With the same infallible success of Roper in search of a licking, he has gotten into an annual scrap, and then some. But, como dice Maruja, "jesus, jesus y jesus!" He has not realized half the fistic eruptions that his aggressive nature demands. Cheer up! we are all young yet. Chink's command of the usual English, French, German and Spanish languages is excelled only by his ability to express in any of them the thoughts attendant to a swabo in a Nav P-Work, He is super-Huent in this direction, though he has been known to make several consecutive state- ments without his customary interjections, expletives, adjectives, etc., etc. However, these were on very special occasions, and he has promised not to do it again, and, above all, Chink is a man of his word. Although not an unusually savvy man Chink needs little help from anyone, practically or theoretically. Perhaps he is a bit too much this way-independent to a fault. He has known difficulty in the form of uncut lumber, but by coming to-ahem-his senses, he has always managed to keep well clear of the undertow. These l same hardships led him to be always ready to assist a class- mate who is at a loss to frame a fitting description of any or all of the Academic Departments. He is argumentative for the sake of the thing and has a deep-rooted hatred for a hypocrite. These qualities may not seem to go together, but they fit so far as Chink is concerned. Henri has framed a few ideas, which to him represent the sum total of all that a thorough try-out at the world could offer. One of these is "Oh, Hell," and this condenses a lot of long-winded statements to a minimum of solid fact. 59 william Balmer Eacnn Tiffin, Chio HF1uHH UBiuH iKBake!7 Buzzard, Basketball Squad C4j. LUFF, Bill or Bake, otherwise known as William Palmer Bacon, hails from Tiffin, Ohio, the home of the Tiffin Bill Posting Association and the Tiffin Daily Tribune and Herald. These three things would make any town famous. When Bill sits clown in Smoke Hall and reads to us the local news in the Tribune, the crowd gathers closerg because they know that the Tribune brings back fond memories and soon a good story will be forth- coming, beginning: "Well now, you see, in TiHin,", etc. Gut West Bill is well known. One young lady remarked that he must be very popular because she had seen Bacon advertised on the billboards all the way to Chicago. Fluff began his career in the Navy as one of its cutest little Plebes, and for one year he was in great demand. This, however, made him wise in the ways of the Navy and now he is looked upon as an authority on Interclass law at the Academy. , At the beginning of First Class Year, Bill was commissioned to act as Commissariat for the First Battalion. Great changes were expected in the mess hall, but, to our deepest regret, a change in the cadet oiiicers was announced before he could demonstrate his efficiency. As a fusser Bake stars. He is beloved by all the girls, but he seldom drags. He has, however, invented a new system of fox trotting, for the use of which several vaudeville dancers have oiiered fabulous amounts. As a student, the less said the better. He is savvy all right, but he hates to study. Eight o'clock finds him leaving Smoke Hall and nine o'clock finds him entering it. The hour between has most likely been spent in visiting or else in giving lectures on "The Two Roads." l He has other qualities too numerous to mention, but those that l know him will agree that one could not find a more congenial and likeable friend than Bake, and he goes forth into the Service with the best wishes of the whole class. N 60 f!Ehtnin bball QEarniJa1:l1t Key West, Florida "Sarah" "Earn" Battalion Commissary. U HAT'S your name, Mister?" "Earnhardt, sir. " Ho! ho! Sarah, eh? Where're you from?" "North Carolina, sir." From that day to this Earnhardt has been known as "Sarah," "Sarah Bernhardtf' Savvy, generous, good-hearted and diligent, he has gone through Academy life unperturbed. Sarah was a reg plebe, a savvy youngster, a savvier second classman, and he has successfully held down the job of First Batt Commissary throughout First Class Year. He is of a serious turn of mind, silent and thoughtful, but never aloof. There isn't a more sociable fellow in the Academy after you really know him. A man whose division between right and wrong is well defined, Earn is a fellow you feel better for knowing. Lenoir, North Carolina, was Sarah's original home. There may be nicer places, but a derisive "Aw g'wan!" has squelched many a debater on that subject. Never has he refused to help a classmate with the distress signal up. The most intricate of calc curves offered no obstacles T to him, and Youngster Year he was some little life-saver. Above all, he is a worker, which, combined with his natural talents, has produced results to be envied by the great majority. The bachelor life appealed most strongly to Earnhardt during his first two years as a midshipman, but the wiles and snares of the gentler sex got the better of him last year. Now he takes in every hop. CNo, there is no particular onell Tennis is his main diversion. He'd sooner play it than sleep. Any midshipman who leaves his downy couch at 4.30 A. M. to play tennis must like it! As an ofiicer he is bound to succeed. You can bet your last cent that whatever Earnhardt undertakes will be done thoroughly and well. "I-Ie'p yo'se'ves, fellas, he'p yo' se'ves!" 61 Elem Wallace Jaaghp .5 New Haven, Missouri 6iHen9l HBags7! HM0therH Hllululi liL0uie97 "Martin" Buzzard, Football Numeralsg Crew Numeralsg Hustlers CID, Lucky Bag Staff, Log Staff C3, 2, U. HE old lady of the Navy--one hears so much about the old man-but here you have the old lady. "Hen" is another maternal nickname, but doesn't fit nearly so well as Mother. For four years he has nursed the crew squad-meanwhile preparing that sterling work on the Upper Waters of the Severn, so completely illustrated with views done on the ground. Lew comes of splendid Missouri stock. A military family, indeed, for he has more brothers in the Army and Navy than Beatty has cousins. He has upheld the family traditions of energy and ambition, and finishes the four years with a very creditable showing. His versatility has exceeded that of any member of the Lucky Bag Staff, for he has taken pictures, drawn them, and hounded the delinquents who failed to turn theirs in, besides gladdening George Hussey's heart with many a clever bit of writing. ' Cupid early claimed Hen for his own. A high-powered, explosive arrow struck the old lady amidships of his port thorax and laid him low First Class Year. Ben Holcombe scooped the Lucky Bag with that vicious yellow sheet, The Log, and gave the ' news to an already expectant public early in 1916. We foresee a domestic felicity too great for words-Hen is a home-loving soul. The lure of Company A called Mother from off the "oorlogships" last June and he went ashore to take command. If it warped his erst- while gentle disposition it gave him a fund of anecdote in re. "Ape," "Moke," and "jew," that will never be exhausted. He bore up nobly under the strain of the summer and came out with the same old happy smile. The perils of the sea are no menace to Lew, for he is a born sailor, albeit that the biggest water that he saw prior to "signing the articles" was the Missouri River. A complacent acceptance of the vicissitudes of life afloat is his best asset and he cares not for the agitation caused by wind and wave. 62 George Enrsep Brite Charleston, West Virginia upign uGe0rgen csD0rSeyn Buzzardg Assistant Cheer Leader. HEN George goes out into the Service he will put his whole heart land he has a big onej into his job, and will turn out results the Navy wants, for when work appeals to him he goes after it hammer and tongs. Cy Lyle picked him out for his assistant cheerleader, and that means work, lots of it. Pig liked it and made good, the only assistant we have seen who was as good as his boss, which is saying a heap when Cy was the boss. Every now and then we hear wild tales of the parties and escapades that marked George's candidate days. That hoboing trip down into Virginia will go down into history as an excellent demonstration of how far a man can go on four bits. .He claims that the modern generation of Plebes does not know what it is missing in not leading a genuine Plebe life, and he ought to know. Ask him to show you the medal he won for being the prize bull-slinger of the gang. It is a fair example of the accomplishments of a good P19561 and George was one of the best. If it hadn't' been for Dago, Dorsey would have had a compara.. tively easy time with the Academic Departments, but the tongue that is so glib with Kipling can't handle le Francais a little bit. But T speaking of Kipling, coax him to give you "Fultah Fisher's Boarding House," and you will appreciate Kipling if you never did before. Gr if you have never laughed, listen to George enjoying the comic section of a Sunday paper. That laugh would convulse an undertaker. George and the Executive Department failed to agree on one or two points, and George went to sea for quite a cruise. He tried to get even by doing shore duty while the rest of us were on the Pacific Coast, but according to reports he drew the short end of the deal. He likes the good things in life, but they will never run away with him, for he is pretty much of a man in every respect. There is just one thing about George for which we can't exactly l account-his peculiar love for sleeping in a taxi. T 1 63 Qllharles Shams Baker Lynchburg, Virginia "Charlie" "Amador" - mittee CQ, ID. HARLIE is one who by his never-failing courtesy and unceasing civility upholds-and typifies the true Southern gentleman. These same characteristics have won him hosts of friends, outside the class as well as in it. Charlie defines the term "fusser" by his own actions. The intervals between hops are black passages to be borne with, but not embraced.

Nlarvels at his safe escapes, but does not safeguard himself against the dangers of the future. Of material dangers he need never be afraid, for his dancing alone would win him a fortune, should he care to forsake the Navy for another field. I Being a true savoir, the Academic Departments have never caused him serious worry. With- out excessive labor or worry he has managed to stand well throughout the four years. When stripes were assigned, the three he pulled down were a source of satisfaction to everyone, and the manner in which he carried out his duty has well justified the confidence placed in him by all. Believing that it is better to excel in one than to be mediocre in many, he has confined his athletic activities to class baseball. Many a would-be base-stealer has trotted back to the bench because the quick judgment and a steady hand at second proved too much for him. Although he is retiring and non-greasy to a marked degree, his quiet efficient work on three cruises proved that he has the qualities necessary for a good officer. His success in the Service is a foregone conclusion, and it may be truthfully said of him that "those who paint him truest praise him most." 64 Three Stripes, Baseball Numeralsg Hop Com- llaenrp fllbzster jllilertnin Beaver City, Nebraska a' Hpetev Buzzard, Soccer Numerals. ETE " came to us as quiet a lad as you will find in a Sabbath Day's journey-he leaves even more so. The exigencies of a Naval career have cowed him-he rarely speaks above a whisper-oh, no! The old Seventh remembers his peregrinations, with mingled awe and admiration--he has those awful spells-you know--them there fits of loving- and when he does-s'enough. The gentler sports have claimed him for their own-he lives with Charley Baker for one thing, gentle in itself. He cruised with Ziroli's Italian Soccer Team, and achieved numerals, but the strain has left its mark upon him-he is now a devotee of the art of passing the honey. The cruises have been his delight--he started in Antwerpen and left a string of broken hearts from there to San Francisco. But Cupid dealt him a foul blow and now the rascal writes tons of mail per diem. The Exposition was not the only thing that Pete saw in the gathering place of the Native Sons-nay, not so, for were there not also present the native daughters, passing fair? Ask Pete-we are forbidden to mention names. His dry smile and drier humor have combined to make of him a very likeable chap. He doesn't do much self-advertising, nor much of this honest-to-goodness stuff. He refrains from fuss- ing except when the fussing is excellent, when he breaks forth in glory. A careless observer would say easy-going, but those who savvy such things say good nature, there is plenty of backbone to stiffen his leniency. No conscience fiend, Pete, but a man who recognizes the distinction between work and pleasure and chooses work. He has caught some of Charley's airs, and he affects a man-of- the-world manner, but it doesn't get by us, because we know his innocent nature. The last paragraphs of these blooming biographies degenerate into sentimental rot-we feel so kindly toward a man who has labored beside us for four long years, but there is sincerity in our hearts when we say of Pete that he is an officer and a gentleman-whether or not he is a good judge of whiskey is entirely irrelevant in these days of temperance afloat. But Pete will be a good man to stand watch with, for he knows when to keep quiet-and what is more desirable? 65 Qrnolh Iaanningtun Zgatzman Helena, Montana HGlo0mU HMO!-ltyil One Stripep Track Squad 13, 2, IJ, RiHe Squad n C455 Lucky Bag Staff. ID you ever run across a man who combined the open-heartedness and free ideas of the Great West with the insular reserve of an Englishman? There you have the old Gloom. Don't hold his name against him, though. He was christened Gloom as a Plebe, simply because some of the upper classmen failed to fathom his inscrutable smile, and Gloom he has been ever since. ' Gloom first jumped into the limelight Plebe Year, when his musings assumed tangible shape in the form of poetry. His Homeric fame has remained undimmed, even though the "Sweet Lizzie" who inspiredlhis earlier ballads has given way to other and more euphonious heroines. 'Heaven forbid that we should give the impression that Gloom's only activities lie in the pur- suit of the Muse. For, know ye, he is one of the best two-milers in the Academy-ask Beans Cowley. Fame has been denied him, however, by the abolishment of his event from track athletics at the Academy. To use his own words, he has been slightly "out of condition" of late. He has tried to get the Sock to run a ten-mile race with him, but thus far without success. To console himself for this lost opportunity, he has thrown himself fiercely b ,- into his work on the track, and has developed into one of Tommy's , 1 right-hand men on the winter cross-country runs. As a fusser, Gloom is very cautious. Since one fateful experience Youngster Year, which he shared with Amos and Beans, he has been very wary, and has never advanced beyond a "tentative schedule" until absolutely sure of his ground. Once convinced, however, he opens out like a bud, and is invariably characterized as "awfully nice." Rather reserved by nature, our Gloom is slow to form likes and dislikes. Once your friend, however, in a quiet, undemonstrative manner he makes you realize that there is a man alongside of you. No light-hearted good-fellowship, this, but the kind that will bear up in a seaway, being held fast by the frames of esteem and kindly regard to the stanch keel of loyalty.

N Bobbie Bourne we have a thoroughly worth-while man from every point of view. What if Mabel Umptyump on her first trip to Annapolis does invariably ask who is the good-looking four-striper that dances so beautifully? The more frequent visitors at the hops know better than to display such depths of ignorance, for our Bobbie is well known, and the title " Dash- ing Bubbie," disrespectful though it may be, pays mute tribute to his success along certain lines. It is no secret that his is a most desirable presence at other social affairs than hops. Successful would be a good word with which to characterize Bobbie. As a savoir, he has the rare quality of being able to explain anything to anybody, and all classes come to him for help- , He is solving Algebra for a Plebe, Calc for a Youngster, Steam for a Second Classman and the daily turbine lesson for a classmate, when he should be boning his own work. As a four- Striper he proved to be the right man in the right place. Four stripes is no joke in these troublous times at the Naval Academy. A man with tact and ability is needed, and that is Bourne all over. ,. As a man his sensible advice and level head have done more good than anyone can realize who has not had the habit of dfspping in to see him when in trouble. Bobby is an impetuous lad. There's no holding him in when he sees his heart's desire, usually feminine. In desolate Saharas, such as Tangier, Gibraltar and the like, where the ladies are conspicuous by their absence, Bobby was easily kept in hand, but in Paris, Rome, San Francisco and Los Angeles, where American Beauties are to be found, the gang had to do without him, for he always had a date of some kind. As for the moments he spends at home on leave, we can but imagine the wonderful time he must have. Bourne is liked and respected for his all-around good qualities: the Navy won't gain a better officer, a man couldn't have a better friend. With this we leave you, Bobby. All this Brigade has to say is that you're the best we produce. 67 Iaarrp Elannlehe igaugb Boonville, Indiana "Harry" "Count" "Debauch" Buzzard: Soccer Numeralsg Reina Squad. HO is that dark, distinguished young gentleman who just passed?" you ask. Did you turn to get a second look, too? Humph! They all do, and, what's more, he's just as congenial and good hearted as he looks. There isn't a more generous fellow in the Academy than Harry Vancleve Baugh. Harry was appointed from Indiana and has always had a warm spot for the Hoosier State in his heart. The Count is a natural savoir. He bones less than any man in the First Battalion and yet has a better average than most. Harry never permits the trivial details of studies to worry him in the least, being content to sail along' well to windward of a " 2.5." He has the wonderful ability of making you believe all that he says. He would rather argue than eat. First Class Year found the Codnt in command of the Second Company. He was an able and efficient three-striper, but a change in the administration gave him the right to wear only a " buzzard" during Academic Year. The Discipline Department and Harry have always been at war. Plebe and Youngster Years the HO. C.'s" failed to appreciate his numerous pranks and his class standing suffered accordingly-this in spite of the fact that as a sea lawyer he is unequalled. Owing to his ability to get the maximum enjoyment out of life with the minimum amount of exertion, it goes without saying that Harry has cultivated a few fussing habits. Periodically he resolves to forego social frivolity, but it is seldom that he fails to attend a good hop. He's as popular with the ladies as with the men, a lover of good-fellowship and always ready with a good story. His fluent flow of words has made him a past-master at this art, and when Harry is "Out of the Wilderness" we feel sure that his words will meet with strong approval in any J. O.'s Mess. " Well, now, jest whatta you got?" Eh, Harry? "Don't be one all your life." 68 Qlllintnn Ilatmter Iaahill Marion, Ohio uplugn asstumpvv Two Stripesg Crew Numeralsp Soccer Numerals. ILLIONS for defence, but not one cent for tribute." The above statement was made by Clinton Hunter Havill in reference to an article in the Lucky Bag, and after such a statement we have decided to print all we have about him. Havill, otherwise known as Senor and Stump, was appointed to the Academy from Marion, Ohio. We have been unable to learn very much about this city as it seems that he favors another. CNo names given, by request.J Stump is prominent in everything connected with the Academy. In athletics fthe United States brandj he has won his numerals, while in a higher branch ClVlexican systeml he has won a host of friends. While not a red mike, his tendencies are along that line, that is, they were until Second Class Year. We are sure that there is a reason for this, after noting the postmark and handwriting on most of his letters during the past year. In his studies Havill excels, especially in Modern Languages. The only trouble is that his pronunciation and interpretation are so far ahead of his professors that they are unable to understand or to comprehend his meaning. This, in some few cases, has caused his mark for the recitation to suffer slightly. However, for his studiousness he has been awarded two stripes: and it is a pleasure indeed to see him commanding the first section of the Second Company. Havill is always ready and willing to lay aside his own work to help someone solve a diflcicult problem. He gives aid freely to all who ask, be they first classmen or plebes, strangers or friends. You cannot help but like and admire him, for his is the type that speaks of good will to all. His entering the Service separates the Academy from a good and true friend, but it gives to that Service the beginnings of a good and faithful officer, one whom we will always be proud to have known. gQuf: Senor?

HEY say that the sea is rather deep in spots, but the Blonde-he's deep all over, and to make it worse he possesses a countenance quite void of guile. He is a past master of the art of fussing and has a tender manner that makes each girl he drags think that she is the only one-well, she is-for the time being. The cruises have played havoc with the Blonde. When he is seen, a few hours out from port, leaning against the rail, with a far-away look in his eyes, you are quite at a loss whether to say "Frankie, she was some girl" or "I don't suppose you'll be below for supper to-night." The ill-famed Gulf of Tehuantepec had the condescension to remain placid when the Mis- souri passed over it last summer, and as a result, Frank, having come to the conclusion that there were a few smooth spots on the . .. . ocean, decided to forego the scarlet-striped trou, the cozy government bungalow, etc., of the C. A. C. Hence we all look forward to another Admiral- which is saying quite enough. When not engaged in fussing, Frank has gone in for athletics. Forsaking his early love, the S. G. S., vulgarly known as the "weak squad," he took up golf and . tennis with some success. Not wishing to display any undue par tiality to the gentler forms of sport, he joined Clinnie Braine's rough- neck class lacrosse team, and was often seen wearing yellow numerals, an athletic limp and occasionally a souvenir of contact with a lacrosse stick acting for the time being in the capacity of a mace. At the beginning of Xmas leave, he qualified as the family chauf- feur, and by the end of leave he was a speed maniac. Two stripes adorned the fair one's sleeve, and he acted as First Luff of the Rag- time Eighth-he had a most fascinating manner of carrying his sword -rather smacked of the Life Guards, y'know-but as a two-striper -he lacked nothing. It's going to be rather hard to part with Frank, but everyone has to settle down sometime, and while we are spending the night aboard, you can count on Frank being quite "en famille."

HEN not indulging in athletics the Old Roman's scope of activities is bounded by Moore's and the movies, but these are mere between-season diversions, for every fall sees him on the football field and each spring rolls around to find Kennedy "of Navy" gracing the diamond. His three years of hard work on the football ' field put him in the line that faced the Army the last time we met on Franklin Field, but in baseball he has yet to earn the recognition which his abilities in that line deserve, but which his "spring feeling" mood prohibits. Dunc was our first Class President-elected in the days when we chose such men for the Course. but the powers-that-were ruled otherwise, and Dune relinquished the helm after con- ducting us through the stormy waters of Youngster Year in a creditable manner. Kennedy does not ap ear in Smoke Hall regularly-rather he is to be found in his room, surrounded by a colerie ofa open-mouthed youngsters, to whom Dunc expounds his views on everything under the sun in a manner that would shame even Haroun al Raschid. ' Femmes? He would tackle an armored motor car going at eighty miles an hour, but fuss-never. On the few occasions when he has been enticed into the company of femmes he has escaped at the first opening to recount his adventures to "Lil." - When you see Dunc and the jones, Dick and "Hach S.," , , A A laughing heartily together, it's pretty certain that their amuse- ment is derived from the re-telling of one of their common fund of "'l'hricetold Tales." ' Dunc became suddenly interested in fish while in Paris, and insisted on taking George and Tom out to the Trocadero-why, they are still trying to discover. His famous disappearance in Seville " to buy some chocolate" has baffled even Philo Gubb. But, after all, who among us has not at least one "stunt" on his record? From what we hear there was a blight in Concord the year Kennedy joined the Navy, for in his own home town Dunc is evidently regarded as a tutelary deity. We don't have those things here, but Dunc means a lot to us, when he is serious, and when he gets out where there "ain't no mo' 2.5's," the old Concord i High School Major will produce when hits mean runs. 71 Russell Stanley Eerkep Goshen, Indiana "Count" "Fats" "Admiral" Star C2, Il, Four Stripesg Football Numerals. HE Count is ambitious. He has set out to learn the Navy from start to finish and he has a good start. He works hard to excel, but he is always ready to help a classmate out. lie never tires-has an infinite capacity for work, and achieves much in a short space o time. 1 "Poor john Vincent," we used to say, "the Count will bilge him yet." But strange to say, the Admiral has imparted some of his savviness-of which he has a plenty-to his beloved roommate, and now john talks radio as fluently as Boik himself. Four stripes went to Berkey as a matter of course-his 4.0's in Efficiency tell only half the tale. He cultivates the social as well as the military side of his job-a constant attendance at the hops is ample proof of his love of company. . Ben Holcombe says "he knows what he knows when he knows it." We agree with him- the Count is positive. He has a class-room manner that is a mystery to half the Class. The Profs cringe when he starts his recitation, and lie weak and exhausted when he has finished. A bad knee ended a promising career as a wrestler, and the same knee has limited his football activities to one game a year on the Class team. He rules the Cosmopolitan Club and the Associated Radiator Clubs, besides being King of the Oil Burners. A natural tendency to associate with the O. C. and an inherent fondness for the filthy weed gave him enough sea service to give him 4 3' a fogey on graduation. His cruises were marked with an increased cheerfulness, and raise a hope in our breasts that he will shake down well at sea. To have him roaming at large in the Service would lead to certain disaster, for he would be tearing out the radio installation . i f "" i Q in each new ship, and remodeling it to his own and .Iohn's ideas.

K ACK'S one main characteristic is that nothing appeals to him seriously-absolutely nothing-f work-play-athletics-femmes. In all conditions and under all circumstances he acts simply as his desire directs. You may notice among his nicknames, that of "Savvy," which, translated, means "one who knows, or appears to know, more than the average." When .lack first had the title it was more or less in jest, for that was back in the Plebe days when .l ack was well down, but they still use it, and now they mean it, for Jack at rare intervals emerges from his state of indifference, eases into an exam, and comes out, dropping a few tenths just to Console the Department. He is the silent partner in the Berkey Radio Company, and he has displayed his ingenuity in mans' rare forms of standard apparatus-using a bed spring for a transformer, etc., etc. He's a Won er. .lack is unassumingg he doesn't pose as touge, but in a tight situation there are few in the Class who are more capable of delivering a good account of themselves than our friend john. I To a student of melancholia, gloom, depressions and the everyday rhino feeling, Vincent IS F1 peculiar specimen. The state of mind in which he ends a liberty borders on all, yet is none of these. Name any port that we have visited, and Jack will heave a deep sigh, register a far-away look-and blow smoke through his nose most pensively. The various forms of athletics haven't appealed to him very strongly, but he swims and he smokes. He solved this difficulty by becoming manager of the swimming team -now he can do both. The cruises have given John an opportunity to show that under his indifferent attitude there is a real love for the Service and an ability to deliver the goods that that T Service wants. He leaves with us a memory of a man who is at once an officer and a gentleman, and a friend. 73 f!EIJarIes graham Jaertninh 5 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania "Charley" Three Stripes, GNT, Captain Gymnasium Team, All-around Gymnast CD: Hop Committee CD, Class Crest Committee. HIS man has gone seriously and conscientiously about his work and play, and of both he has made a thorough and well-balanced success. He has played rules and held fast to a very clean and manly code that leaves him now, at the end of the race, a good man and a well-bred gentleman. Charley is an excellent minder of his own business, a man who does not thrust him- self into the affairs of others and who does not advertise his own. Therefore, while he is not a hail-fellow-well-met, he has the singular distinction of having lived four years in a close community without having for a moment lost the fullest respect of his classmates. He is no diplomat. Charley says what he thinks openly and frankly, in a staunch tone and manner that leaves no doubt whatever that he means to stand right behind his guns. If he believes a thing is true he will hold it to be true in the teeth of a doubting instructor and the shadow of a swabo. Therefore full credit is due him for the success he has achieved in the academic departments, for certainly he has never fattened a lean mark by the wiles of diplomacy. Charley is one df those fortunate men who do everything well and are duffers at nothing. He is thorough and efficient-a man who can make things work. His athletics have been marked by his usual thoroughness. He went out for gym and he went hard with every ounce he had. Now he captains the team and no better all-around gymnast has been seen for many years. There is something about Charley that indicates a man in per- fect control of himself. He is always cool and well poised, never the victim: of an embarrassing situation and always in complete control of whatever is in front of him, be it a company of pampered pets or a cat boat in a squall. He has shown his mettle here and marked himself a well-bal- anced man and a thorough gentleman. 4 74 Bicbarh Jlantnarh Eiunes Washington, District of Columbia "Dick', "Colonel" "Major" Buzzard, Football Q4, 3, 255 Football N9 Crew Squad C4, 35: Lucky Bag Staff: Class Ger- man Committee. ECAUSE I know him like a book, and because I have an awful drag with Chief Fhussey, I have undertaken to tell the truth about Dick. Dick is first of all a man. None of this honest-to-goodness stuff, either, but the kind that won't let him be small, no matter what the price of being straight. He has frolicked about with all the grace of a baby elephant for four years, but can anyone recall a time when he failed to support his convictions with all that dignity of a judge when con- victions were being aired ? The nays have it. It would belittle the Major to tell of his petty exploits, rare though they are, but to describe his valorous deeds in times of stress will show the measure of the man. When affairs on the Missouri reached an impasse, Second Class Cruise, did Jones pass the Buck? Not Richard. Without regard to his own position, he waded in to right the wrong, and we like him for it. And when the clans gather in Smoke Hall, you can find him pounding out sound doctrine for a group of his cohorts. ' , His football career was marked by disaster, but he put in sixty of the hardest minutes a man can give toward holding off the Army in that awful tragedy on Franklin Field, when we bit the dust for the Greylegs' amusement.

G15 Director CQ, ID, Fare- well Ball Committee: Class German Committeeg Sharpshooter. HE Colonel says, says he, that it's a gay life if you don't weaken. But poor old Cap has weakened, and only a Fatima will revive him from the depths of his senility. There's a world of reverence for the grand old man in that nickname "Cap." He has stood his ground in stress and storm these many years, and through a rift in the smoke of battle his round and shining dome has spurred us on to victory. "Cap" has seen more of life in his youth than we will see in all our threescore and ten years in this vale of woe. He came to us mature and sober minded, and he has been an anchor to wind- ward for many a weaker man in the class. There's nothing but horse sense in that noble knot of his, and he has as well balanced a poise as you'll find in the class. No swank, no tougeness, but the level-headed stuff that puts the boys safe abed when the cup has been passed once too often, is what makes him dear to all of us. A V To mention studies in connection with Emmet is like drinking champagne with the consomme. They simply don't mix, and there's no sense in talking about 'em. The lure of a life of ease spoiled a promising athlete in the Colonel, for he hit the line hard, shoulder to shoulder with the best of them. But he has passed the time of life when glory appeals to a man, and he gave up the work for pleasanter tasks. We know that he has the stuff, and what does it matter whether he shows it? There is not a man in all 'I6 that has a word against Emmet, for he has been free and above board with them all. When his cohort jones double- s crossed him and pinned that Y. Nl. C. A. job on him, did he lay down? Not the Captain. With all the sincerity in the world, he did the work, and we wonder whether the joke wasn't on the joker. "Cap" is confidence-inspiring. You can recognize a big man by those unmistakable symptoms that can't just be described. He has a way with his inferiors that makes him their idol, and success awaits him when he gets his division, for he is a leader of men. And he is eminently a sailor man, with no frills or furbelows, but lots of manhood. I Gibnmas Ricketts warner Ashland, Wisconsin "Tommy" "Tittering Tom" Buzzard: Reina Squad. HIS is Tommy, who has been blessed with one of the kindliest good natures with which most of us will ever have the good fortune to come in contact.

A sentimentalist and a romanticist, Tommy has ever cherished in his heart a warm affection for the gentler sexg but what is infinitely rarer and far more desirable, he possesses an uncommonly penetrating and sympathetic insight into their natures, so incomprehensible to most of us, how- much we do protest. As a story teller, Tom is in his element. His tales of the lumber-jacks and their camps in the farthest wilds of northern Wisconsin, the forlorn and wandering remnants of a melancholy tribe of once proud savage red men which haunts the shores of Lake Superior, are all so luridly picturesque and bear such a semblance of reality that one is compelled to believe, whether he will or not. S In his candidate days and in the formative stage of Plebe Year, 'I'ommy's actions were often more impulsive than circumspect. Demerits, however, are not, we believe, contrary to general opinion, a token of deficiency, but, when not acquired viciously, are a healthy sign. There is something splendid, something magnetically independent, about the man who will not always mind. .....

URNER is a debonair youth-reference attached picture-and does quite a few things with grace and agility, but never with ennui.

At golf he is somewhat of a shark and his knowledge of the game extends even to the etiquette of dress-you should have witnessed his appearance on the links while on Xmas leave. He dances, and when he chances on a worthy partner his face assumes a far-away look of absolute content, and if you have a kind heart, you don't cut in.

'I' 'w His trip to the West Coast afforded him fresh fields for conquest and he conquered, but here we are on the point of imparting state secrets, so for further details we will refer you to Turner himself. Naturally quiet and reserved, Turner is one of those fellows who, to use a time-worn expression of biographers, "is hard to know, but when you know him you cannot help but like him." He possesses an exterior that is not penetrated by everyone, but those who have done so have found therein a very likeable fellow, with all the attri- butes of an agreeable messmate and a capable officer.

F you should tell John that he was unsat. in juice with a 1.5 for the term, he would light another Rameses, but if you said a hair was disarranged, you would cause him intense con- cern. John is one of our leading exhibitors of the tailor's art, and by the nonchalance and savoir faire with which he moves at the hops, he has earned for himself the title of Vernon Castle II. The most painful incident of his career took place in Nice, where he applied hot chocolate to his immaculate white service, with startling results. He still suffers from the recol- lection. - But do not think, gentle reader, that John's talents are confined to the above lines. He is something of a savoir, but believes that no man should overburden his brain with dull fact, and consequently is content to rest on his laurels, rather than to pursue the glittering star. His ideas, as regards navigation, are distinguished for their originalityg one of his best was when he "assumed the sun's position to be fixed in relation to that of the observer." Besides, he is an advocate of the straight left arm, and can converse Huently upon lVlcLaughlin's net play. In fact, john is a devotee of all those sports so popular at the Country Club. When the gang assembles in Smoke Hall, he is always there, ready to put in a few choice ones concerning Detroit. This is a never-failing source of inspiration to him, and he can hold you for hours with his vivid tales of thc meteoric rise of the auto- mobile industry. In addition he is well up on all the latest cafes, cabarets, and the theatre in general. I john sometimes likes to mourn over the hardships of a naval oiTicer's career, but as he is already making plans for a New York ship we expect to keep him with us. 80 Bruce epper jfluuh San Rafael, California h f'Pep" "Frisco" Buzzard. HA'I"S in a name? According to the ancient interpretationfdnothing-but if this be so we have the exception which proves the rule. From the western coast he descended upon us and we have had a flood with us ever since. Forgive us, patient reader, for this is not idle jest but a simple truth. Beginning with his representation of "I-Iockle-a-vitch and Honey-ockle" Plebe Year for .the edification of the upper classes, he has deluged us with mirth and merriment with never- failing results. Should you stray upon a circle of laughing lunatics surrounding a pair of star Performers take a chance that it is another case of Flood and Steele, and the money is yours. A gafipya feature of it is that it is "ever with us" whether the day be a cold gray Monday or a sunny a ur ay. He has his serious side, however, and it is as entertaining and likeable as his humorous side. Pep has never overlooked the fact that the Academic Department persistently demands its 2.50 and that hard work in large quantities is necessary before the demands are satisfied. Being of the happy medium he has devoted himself accordingly. First Class cruise took us to his old stamping ground and he gave us the benefit of his knowledge and the hospitality of his hearthstone with the free-handed and breezy manner typical of his native state. In Athletics Bruce has been more or less inclined towards Swedish Gymnastics, but has deserted the sport after long and consistent training for more exciting adventure. Mexican athletics finds him among its foremost upholders and his memberships in the Cosmopolitan and Radiator Clubs are of long standing and enviable repute.

A girl once told him he was the most sarcastic person she ever knew, but we believe that this remark was provoked by jealousy of his clever repartee. If you could see his sleeves in the picture, you'd notice those stripes. They are not complimentary ones by any means, but are well deserved for efficiency and savvyness. He's on the Hop Committee, and deservedly, too, for he's a beautiful dancer, and the fair ones just dote on his deep, melodious voice. A hard-headed practical Irishman with a fund of dry, quiet humor, a spark-yes, almost a blaze of carefully concealed sentiment in his nature, and a keen "savvy" which persists till it gets at the root of a matter, describes Gerald to his intimates. To those who have gone less deeply into his nature he stands pre-eminently for a square deal-a deal so square that some unaccustomed to the brand, have bumped against the corners of it. It's a way he has of doing things. Before long his associates came to realize that he was a quiet though potent influence in the class. He did things- and when he had finished there were no ragged edges. To sketch Gerald's career in the Academy needs more than to tell of his doings. Completeness in such a narrative only lies in the effect which marked his efforts. He had an attack of "amour" Second Class Year-June Week-but a wedding invitation in which the only mention of his name appeared on the envelope served to cure him completely. Although a devoted pal of Miss Fatima, he throws her over to go out for football and crew, and if he were only a bit larger, he'd'have N's to his credit instead of numerals, of which he has an host. 82 Buuglas flfastleherrp wunhtnarh College Park, Georgia UGutsH HD0ugU HBig BOYH HDuI-ol, Buzzard, Varsity Football Squad C4, 3.

IRST excited the envy, and also the particular notice of upper classmen during the early part of Plebe Year by having his picture published in numerous periodicals as former five striper at a military academy. His behavior under investigation so aroused further interest that he became known as "that ratey Mr. Woodward" and had as many engage- ments every evening as the most popular debutante. About the same time the coaches and those of the Regiment who followed football closely discovered that Woodward had the makings of a real football player. The fact that he never appeared in an Army game was due, not to his own lack of ability, but to a wealth of others equally as good. Three years of hard work as a hustler earned the gratitude of the Brigade if not 21 letter. A marksman of no mean ability, intermittent activity at the range developed an accuracy i that bids fair to bring a berth on the team this year, and if so, the Academy may be sure of a steady hand when bulls count most. He fusses often but not steadily, is neither a savoir nor wooden, but can usually get at the base of anything he undertakes, and is always willing to explain to or help others less fortunate. Woodward is a boy in many things. He will take a whole-souled interest in any new scheme sound or unsound, but there are within him the essentials ofa man, big and broad. Those who know Guts will have found him a friend who will stand by them in everything. Quiet and reserved until you know him well, you will find him wholesome and unspoiled, upon better acquaintance. If the past forecasts the future, success is sure to be his portion. 83 walter C!Eugene Batten, Elr. 6 Goldsboro, North Carolina "Possum" "Weezy" "Waldo" Regimental Commissaryg Swimming Team C4, 3, 2, U7 Captain Swimming Teamg Academy Record in 40 yard Back Stroke: sN'rg Extra Swimming Squad CID. OSSUM has been a mystery to us and to himself ever since he struck Crabtown. He sticks to one mystery until it is solved and then snakes out a new one, no matter how attractive the solved mystery might prove to be. For instance-he studied at Bobby's for a competitive exam., passed at the head of the bunch-but do you suppose for a minute that he stayed there for the entrance exams.? Not Walter. He packed his bag for Shad's and a change of scene. I Possum's Plebe Year was eventful to say the least. In the summer he was a regular on the baseball team-he was one of the chief entertainers at the 8th Company's tables, and when Dad was inconsiderate enough to get chicken pox and leave him for a while, he got ragged smoking in his shower. It was his virgin smoke and deserved better fate. ' With the ladies Possum has progressed, in three short years, from a confirmed woman-hater to an honest-to-goodness fusser. Some of us can remember when he used to ask his friends to drag his girls to the hops for him--but now-such a difference! If Possum has missed dragging to a single hop in the last year and a half it has escaped the eyes of the Sleuth at the door. He would rather drag an unknown "belle" than a cold four-O he has met before, just for the mystery of it. He invariably swears off after each one. As a fish Possum is a whale. He has broken records and hearts in that swimming suit of his. He stacks up with the best of them in the back-stroke for speed, although the Swedes don't give him much on form. The one dark spot in Possum's life is Paris and he won't talk of it, even to his friends. He has hosts of friends and he deserves them. He gets along with any classmate-what more can be said for a man's character? "Where you going, Sailor?" 84 iBhiIip iiumshzn janrtbzrn , Snowden, North Carolina "Dad" "Pawn-Loan" Two Stripes. Died April 1, 1916 I U 4 HE "Father of the Class," "Dad," came to us, not as one who had been before us, or one who rated ahead of us, but to become in every respect one of us. Throughout the four years he has never availed himself of a single rate or privilege not accorded the entire Class, and, Dad, we admire you for it. An earnest worker and a generous and willing helper, he has maintained a place near the top of the Class through his own conscientious efforts. Though the Dago Department has had him bluifed for four years, he nevertheless proved to be strangely adept at making him- self understood in "La Langue Frangaise" upon the occasion of our visit to Nice, Second Class Cruise. On the other hand, he refuses to exercise at the Naval Academy the fussing ability he fllsplayed so well in France: and we can find an excuse only in the belief that there is someone back home." "'Pawn-Loan" has never taken an active part in athletics, a chess-board, a magazine, or a movie being more his idea of amusement. He is an habitue of Smoke Hall, arguing with COW Hamill on the relative merits of the various instructors in the Department of Modern Languages. However, he seldom rhinoesg on the contrary, .he is always ready to Present a more optimistic view of life to those pessimistically inclined. Dad is an ever- x welcome addition to a bull-fest, even though the conversation turn to the subject of "dealers in second-hand goods." Northern has had ample opportunity, during Miles' athletically- occasioned absence from drills and formations, to demonstrate his ability as a company commander, and he has in every instance shown himself equal to the task-a capable officer. Dad, old man, we can't make out how you ever happened to drop back to us, but we are mighty glad you did. The above was written while Dad was still with us, and ex- presses a small measure of the regard and affection which he commanded in the hearts of his classmates. It shows Dad as we knew him and as his memory lives with us. 85 william francis Zguper Festus, Missouri HBi1lH Hpercyn Two Stripes, Football Numeralsg Baseball Nu- merals: Basketball Numerals. N unfortunate resemblance to Percy the Mechanism Man, who was at ,the time starring in the comics, gave Boyer a name that has stuck from those terrible Plebe Summer Days to the joyful present. He is rather mechanical, but who wouldn't be, in this den of evil? But the tin woodman had a heart and Percy is possessed of a large one himself. The lure of the sea doesn't get many from the sovereign state of Missouri, but it called Bill from the bucolic sports of Festus to this sad seaside school, and by the dint of no great exertion he has stayed with us these many moons. There were times when the demon Math chased him furiously through the mazes of Calc, but Percy just knew that they could never catch him, and his faith has been justified, for he passes from the portals of this cherished institution with a few files to his credit. ' The Hustlers were never complete without Percy, nor was the class baseball squad allowed to form until his name was on the list. He has given what he has to the furtherance of others' chances and he has the satisfaction of knowing as he reads this that his classmates appreciate his labors in the vineyard. There are many of his type, but none , more self-sacrificing and devoted. A naturally domestic disposition soon drove him forth as a squire of dames and he has shown occasional flashes of form in our great weakness Csee Jonasj. But his fussing is like his football, for someone else's glory. Many the time has he manfully shoulderedthe hod Pro Bono Publico and helped an indiscreet guide of seminaries. Such a trusting nature as his cannot long go undecorated and he wears the Medaille d'Honneur of the Friends' Friends Naval Order. As leader of the Sickly Second during the throes of Plebe Summer, he gained a name for military genius that has never been forgotten, but his patience and endurance will stand him in good stead in that larger field that lies beyond the walls. At least he will always be square, for deceit is not in him, and he can never hurt a fellow. There are savvier men, but few kindlier than our Mechanism Man. f ., . 86 william Bnhnep iBritz Warwick, Maryland "Rodney" Buzzard, Track Numeralsg Soccer Numerals. X RIENDLY, hard-working, serious-minded, just, and sincere is Rodney. To know him is to like him, for he never fails a friend. Although inclined to be a little bit silent, he can uphold his end of the conversation if he wishes. His unobtrusiveness is most noticeable, and it is always a pleasure to be with a man who is so unassuming. Of his life before becoming a pampered pet we know but little, and with that dark age We are not concerned. He never inflicts tales of the backwoods upon us, for which we like him the more. Endowed with a somewhat sensitive nature, he is, nevertheless, quick to forgive and forget, and his frankness incites one's admiration. Rodney is never rhino and has a sense of humor which keeps us all cheerful, even when we feel the call of the wild. Not distinguished by class honors, he has by constant maintenance of good humor and conscientious loyalty to high ideals, contributed largely to the good name and honor of the Class. Each winter has found him on the soccer field, but this is only a preliminary to work on the track.

HY work? is Clinny's motto: little appeals to him enough to cause effort. He would freeze to death rather than get up and close the windows, and roast because he was too tired to turn over and seek a cooler spot on the forecastle. ' Alfections? He hasn't any-that is, that you can perceiveg to drag a femme twice during a season is to him quite a social error-but he rarely stags. Excited? Never. Perpetually calm-not blas6 or indifferent, but simply a self-possessed manner that stands him in good stead. Nothing feazes him. If he would only take the necessary trouble, he could wear more than an anchor on his collar, but it doesn't appeal to him--not that he drags along the bottom, for the little work he does stands him well up in the Class. His athletic endeavors have taken the shape of golf, tennis and lacrosse. In the latter he left the Varsity squad and the pleasures of the training table to lead the class team, but First Class Year he went back. , V Not content with these activities, he insisted on joining the extra swimming squad-merely to give instruction, of course-and if you could see him tearing through the tank at the rate of a lap an hour, you would be tempted to yell "Away life boats!" As we have said before, his whole period of incarceration here has been spent without particular incident-he never staged any of the stunts of the kind that have made most of us famous. And when a goat hunt is in progress, Clinny sits and smokes serenely-why? They have nothing on him .... and so he goesg when you get to know him-and it takes a year or so to become acquainted beyond that limit that is given everyone- you can't help but like him.

OM counts that day lost in which he has not hung one on somebody, be it his best friend or his arch enemy. He spares no pains and stops at nothing to insure doing a good job, insisting only that it be done with finesse. His early education in the classic shades of Boston gave him a command of the King's English which he has marshaled into a flow for each and every occasion, be it with the gang in Smoke Hall,in the section room, or over the tea cups. The silvering stars on his collar are there because he has produced when hits meant runs. Frequently he has anchored on the weather side of a 3.4 more by his ability to make everything Count than by his actual knowledge of the subject. For four years he has been the life of the baseball squad and the prime mover of the Regu- lfffsp his inability to hit consistently keeping him from the Varsity line-up. On the diamond he glV6S his tongue free rein and takes a crack at everyone, regardless of rank or station. 3 ' Following the footsteps of "Pete" Van Valzah and "Doc" Fry, he has led the sth Company in the course they laid down. His non- chalant manner of drilling with his sword across his arm may not be strictly in accord with the drill regs, but it has produced results. His fluent pen has filled many of the pages of this book, and with- out his midnight labors on Wednesdays many issues of the Log would have been credited to Dudley alone. For a long time he tried to convince George that a gilded T- square and a home with a fireside were better than a mid-watch in a forty-knot gale, but now he has forsaken the idea of the Construction Corps and his real interest in the efficient performance of his duty will make of him a capable line officer. 89 Genrge iBIatt Brewster 5 Salida, Colorado HGYPY7 HR0u6H Buzzard: Reina Squad. HERE is only one thing the matter with Gyp-he is a hoodoo of the first water. There is no form of mishap that has not visited him during his meteoric career at the Academy -they even burned up his clothes at the hospital and accused him of having no sense of humor when he wouldn't laugh. g Look at his nicknames! When he first donned his works and unlaundered hat he looked to be forty--when he made his debut carrying two laundry bags, John Price asked him when the rest of the laundry would be delivered. Wead took one look at that ancient and hardened physiognomy and dubbed him "Rou6." Platt's road on land has been rough and steep, but the cruises have been his forte. In' the summer of 1915 he evaded the authorities and enjoyed twenty-one days leave on the West Coast, just after the order announcing his coming incarceration on the White House during the festive month of September. We would like to tell you of his excursions to Marseilles and other like towns, butl , This fine old gentleman, like each of us, has his failing-speed is his mania-more speed. He and Denny busted a wagon, a motor- cycle and a state ordinance, along with one or two other things, in September, and on another memorable occasion, if Pinkey had not told the magistrate that he could not stay in the cooler, owing to a prior engagement at 6.30 on the terrace, Gyp would have banked behind bars on three distinct charges--and a stone deck. However, with all his barbarous ways, G. Platt Brewster will be H--P--' useful, if not ornamental, in the Service-Uncle Sam can't afford to overlook ordnance experts, you know. And by the way, he has a goat-a snarley goat-diamonds and coal may both be carbon, but you had better keep them segregated in your conversation with Gyp.

ILLIE lived on the wide reaches of the Panhandle, but his heart yearned for a life on the ocean wave, and he came to us. He quickly showed aptitude for fussing. If you doubt his ability, ask any chaperon from the Washington seminaries-they all know him. Ask their fair charges-they all love him. If now you question his faculty for picking queens at any range, ask his friend Broadfoot. It is his motto: " The bigger they come, the better I like 'em." He has waged bitter warfare with the Academic Departments for four years, and though Cl0Wn at times, has never failed to rise. He weathered a terrific broadside launched against him as a farewell shot by the Ordnance Department First Class Year, and now is secure in smooth water. Gillie has been one of the mainstays of class athletics for four years, and has contributed largely to the number of basketball championships held by 1916. In addition, he is by way of being an expert with the gloves, and is always ready for a couple of rounds. If you want a really vivid story, ask him for his tale of the bout with the fleet champion. He does not, as a rule, compete in the open championships for Smoke Hall athletes, but if you catch him feeling right, he can spin some marvelous ones concerning the cow country. It must be con- fessed, however, that these do not have their full effect upon the listeners, since Gillie has no use for the romantic "Bull and brown papers" typical of all true cowpunchers. His proudest moments occur when he has bested Gyp the Blood in a linguistic contest. There is no bigger-hearted man-in the class than Gillie, and if you are his friend, you are lucky. Having known him for four years, we hope and expect to keep him with us for life. 91 Ilaznrp igrpan igrnahfuut Black Mountain, North Carolina llHenry77 HBroadyH HFeetH Two Stripesg Wrestling Team 13, 2, Ijg Captain Cljg wN'rg Class Football C4, 31, Varsity Football CQ, IJ, Football Ng Plebe Crew, Crew Numeralsg Crew Squad CBD, Class President C253 President lVlidshipmen's Athletic Association, Chairman Class German Committeeg Class Committee CQ, Il. HE handsomest man in the Class!" And his reputation has spread afar. But that is the smallest part of Henry's renown. As a wrestler he has won intercollegiate fame, being for two years the undefeated champion of an undefeated team. At the time of writing his team has not yet finished the Nineteen-Sixteen season, but Broadfoot bids fair to maintain his claim to the middle- weight title amongst intercollegiate wrestlers. Nor are his athletic abilities limited to wrestling, in football 'he has a record which we believe he was entirely capable of bettering, were he not so inclined to the simple life and the path of least resistance. He sports an "N" as the result of a sudden inrush of energy-when he began to upset the Greylegs at Philadelphia in Nineteen-Fifteen. In a thoughtless moment he turned out for Crew, but retired soon afterwards to a life of less exertion. , His election to the Presidency of the Class, Second Class Year, brought out a new side of his character. Still the same carefree man, he handled the delicate situations which came before him with a i' diplomacy and tact that made our voyage smooth instead of stormy. Broady is a walking advertisement for the Bull Durham Com- pany, in training or out, he is forever an ardent devotee of the goddess 'fun' " Nicotine. He is strongly affiliated with "Dick" jones-"Broadfoot and Jones against the world" being their constant watchword. He is the life of a party, but a dangerous man to make a liberty with. And he worships other "goddesses" than Nicotine. Ask anyone--Henry is a mighty fine fellow. W. -- P--..

ELL Quack that New York is bounded by a big bluff on one side and a H1 of a sound on the other, and you have the everlasting enmity of a man whose enmity is not to be tlgought of when there is a possibility of obtaining such a desirable thing as his friend- s ip. His two greatest loves are Lady Nicotine and Henry Broadfoot, and he backs both against the world. In connection with the former, we might add that he has broken all records in eluding the stern hand of discipline while paying homage to the fair Narcotic Queen. Toodles is blessed with a natural savviness, and has consequently sailed smoothly and easily over all Aca- demic shoals. Non-greasy and carefree, he has secured an enviable class standing in a very happy and natural sort of manner, and knows nothing by way of natural experience of the grinding trial that many of his classmates have found necessary. He knows that such things ' ' 1 exist, however, because he has never failed to respond cheerfully to any wooden man's S. O. S., giving any and all help that is in his power. An inclination toward things mechanical leads Toodles into all sorts of experiments, and with a few odds and ends of alarm clock and sewing machines, he will construct anything you desire, from an aeroplane to an ice machine, while you wait Cif you only wait long enoughl. We have feared that his talent will lead him into con- structing an infernal machine, to be used in certain localities, but he has successfully resisted all such temptation. The Quack's athletics are mostly Mexican in character and he is one of the world's greatest living artists in this line. When weary of this pastime he seeks recreation in a game of chess, or finds a corner where he can amuse himself by just doing nothing. He cannot be called really lazy-rather would we say that his relations with work are very formal and distant, but whatever characterization in this respect, please note that he never fails to get results when results are called for. Fat, fun-loving Toodles will undoubtedly bring the same pleasure to his associates in the Service that he has to us. Count on Quack when you need him and you can't lose. .

But Dimples has kept his head above water, and the voice of old Horse Face may still be heard in and about Second Class Paradise, groping for a high note or a low, depending on whether he is rendering "Sweet Adeline" or that briny ballad warning us of the innumerable dangers of the deep. It is difficult for a man to find his natural vocation, but Brownie has discovered his-the girls. Here's where he shines. If his dashing walk does not fetch them they are bound to capitu- late before his equestrian gaze and silver tongue. Brownie is the most generous man in the Academy. What's his, is yours, down to his last cheroot and derni6re penny. He has powerful innate socialistic qualities-he practices them himself-and what is more, he practices them on others, as the 6th will testify. In professional lines his tastes are toward naval construction.

' He will tell you that he hails from Arkansas inside of five minutes. Much of his Plebe Year was spent in reciting that fact to the upper Classmen, and on leave, he even went so far as to recite it to the flve hundred members of the Frohsinn Club, after they had bought him a drink. john swears it was five hundred drinks, because every member treated him. . Price is happiest when he has a cigarette and is entertaining a circle of fellows with his mexhaustible line. The fatal weed caused him a lot of trouble his first three years, and nearly Put him on the ship for the first three months of First Class Year: but, realizing that the Hops W0Uld not be complete without him, the authorities remitted his sentence. I , John believes in taking things easy. He doesn't like to study, and hence won't. Even at that he doesn't stand at the foot of the class, and would be much higher if it were not for demerits. His athletic record consists mainly of golf, pool and poker. Don't be led into a poker M ' game with him, for he is a born gambler who loses so rarely that he made his liberties after the cruise sessions of the national game. You might not think that john is one of the oldest men in the class, but even at that he is still heart-whole and fancy-free.

NYONE who, for the first time, sees this man, with his sober face and careful brace, would be very likely to support his contention that he does not rate the title of "The Nutt," but, ask any of the old 6th. They will tell you of the times when it was a part of the regular clay's entertainments to-watch the Nutt stand on his ear in a chair. He is laboring hard to live down his reputation, but even now it is no uncommon thing to see the gang at his table edgingback while they watch Bunnie pass a glass of water through a complete spiral on the tips of his fingers. IThe next event at that table is the arrival of Carroll with the book.l ' Bunnie has always been out for some form of athletics. His steady hard work on the class basketball squad has brought him his numerals and he goes at any game with the idea of playing it for all there is in it. While, since Plebe Year, he has not particularly distinguished himself in the line of studies, he has always had a comfortable margin and he wears his stripe because of the careful manner in which he has performed his duties at all times. Bunnie was one of the first men in the class to join the Naval Institute and he has ever since been a careful reader of the "Pro- f' ceedings." A man who by reason of his conscientious performance of duty and his interest in the development of the professional branches, will make a good oflicer.

"Say, George, lend me your right eye, will you? I want to drive a nail with it." "Sure, if I can get it Out." says George. George has one name that does not appear in the catalogue, and H that is Work.

OUR years ago, amidst the cheers of all Owosso and to the strains emitted by the Owosso City Band, a young man proudly started out to battle with the world in general and the Navy in particular. Those who happened to be around the office on July 23, 1912, were treated to the sight of a black-haired, snappy-eyed young fellow conveying his carpet bag over his shoulder and his clarinet under his arm, ste ping with a "Whitworth Quick Return" motion, across the terrace: and with a "Stop, Look and Eistenn air which clearly indicated that he had no intention of being ruri over by one of them "pesky auto-mi-o-biles." No gentle reader, this was not a member of a German Band, but our own dear seventeen-year-old "Sue." Plebe year was "fruit" for Sue until he unintentionally crossed the path of the first classman on duty Christmas Eve. Thereafter Sue was sure of at least one friend who 'was good for ten demerits. Of course he had other troubles. He can't understand yet how anyone could be so unappreciative as to object to being kept awake Sunday afternoons by the melodious clarinet solos which he used to render. Sue's belief in honesty of all men suffered a serious jolt in Ant- werp. While waiting to get a ticket to Paris, an obliging young man offered to save him the trouble if he would give him the necessary francs. Well, we ask you as man to man, how was Sue to know that the man was a city-slicker? Anyhow, after waiting for two hours, Sue decided that the man had lost his way, so he made a rapid change in his itinerary, going to Brussels instead. After waiting three years for his money Sue has finally concluded that he was gigged. Sue rather surprised the Brigade by blossoming out in all his glory as a fusser at the first hop Youngster Year: he has been a con- sistent ladies' man ever since. But how could any girl resist those wonderful eyes and those sallies of the original cornfield wit? Sue is one of that kind that will sacrifice anything for a friend. On liberty he is always ready for anything that may be planned and sticks till the last blast to see it through. 98 Iaugo bchmiht Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania caHugO1v Three Stripes, Lacrosse Numerals. UGO startedhis sojourn here under a handicap, thanks to one of his company mates-a youngsterg his first year was all uphill by the same token-but now we are glad to say he is on the downward path. It is easy to forget one's first unfavorable opinions when a man's true character unfolds itself as favorably as has that of our hero. Unlike most heroes this German has weaknesses, but they are all of a pleasant nature and serve to enliven the dullest party, and make the man an always welcome and congenial companion. He is a man who can discriminate between work and play as only a man can. His three stripes and class standing bear witness to his aptitude and perseverance along academic lines, and if you don't believe me about that "play" question go to France or the West coast, and gape in awe at the tales that even now are upon every lip-tales of conquest and of revelry. But then he is a thorough German in that as in every respect. It is even said of him that the only reason ' 4 ., .lvit - i-'f he started from the Virginia capes to Frisco was that he might be in trim for the anticipated hilarity along the California littoral. Hugo is wise in the ways of the unfair sex, but is also a man's man. The old 6th was a happy home under his guiding hand, and a master's job in the Sixth is a dubious billet, with such worthies as Tittering Tom, Jimmie Steele, Sue and other cut-ups in the file closets. To sum it all up, Hugo is the finest sort of man, one who will make good wherever he goes-and what is more, he has the rare gift of combined brains, efficiency and good-fellowship. We all hope you're not a spy, Hugo old man, for we 'aim to keep you in the outfit till the joys of life no longer lure. 99 jiiililtnn Gibran Qllarlsun Marshfield, Oregon P14 "Swede" Three Stripes: Crew Squad C4, 3, 2, Ii. ERE, friends, is a man who came from the Oregon ranch the reddest of rojos, but who has since blossomed into a premier fusscur, and a snake of the first water. Swede came to us from a distant land. His frequent allusions to "God's Country" inspired in many of us a wonder as to the character of that ephemeral region, until second class cruise, when he was heard to exclaim that Solomon's Island reminded him of home. Being nothing if not charitable, we concluded that Swede must have a poor memory. Understand at the start that Carlson is in many respects one man in a thousand. Possessed of a tender conscience and high ideals, he obeys the one and follows the other in everything he undertakes. If his actions appear quixotic at times, it is refreshing to find a man who will lean over backwards to carry out his conception of what is right. As a diplomat, Swede would be rather a failure. In fact, he is at times uncomfortably frank in expressing his opinions of persons and things. In such cases, however, it is at least an even shot that it is the truth that is hurting the other man. - - It is unfortunate that Swede could not have been endowed with a little more size and weight. Had such been the case, the J' Academy would have gained a sterling athlete, as he is an ardent ' follower of sport, and always keeps himself in training. Sufficient proof of his quality may be found in his having stayed out for crew for four years, doing his work with the big men, with no hope of ultimate success. With the ladies, Swede is a lion. Dowager and debutante ' + alike go down before those Norse blue eyes and yellow hair. For - ' 'E that matter, he is not unsusceptible himself. Verily, his is a lot f i ---y--- - shared by few, that of both charmer and charmed. ' "Turn out, Chappie!

HAPPY has been endeavoring for four years to live down the reputation that his brother Vance left behind him, but the trait is in the blood, and he simply must be with the girls. All the married women in Annapolis adore him, and George smiles, but says nothing. Behold him after four years of the most constant fussing, still to know the joys of profound affection. I might continue the above to the extent of George Hussey's three hundred and fifty words, but Chappy has done many more things than fussing, and it is my duty to recount them all. He is a versatile lad and space is limited. The Masqueraders seized upon him immediately, for where were sylph-like form and rosepink cheeks combined as in our Chick? Histrionically speaking, George is a broiler- his lines are those of person rather than those of speech. But his dainty feet and legs have graced many an Hundredth Night and June Week Show, and he should furnish delectable entertainment in the O. mess he deigns to join. His legs have served better purposes than ornamentation, however, and he has striven mightily to be a broad-jumper, with no little success. He is a hard- working athlete, and consistent training has made up for what Nature failed to provide. The lacrosse team that Clinny Braine leads into action numbers George among its choicest thugs, and his beauty is daily jeopardized by the fierce scrimmages with the regulars. His scholastic honors are of the Hairbreadth Harry sort. He never seems to care, though, and boning is to him a lost art. He kept the staff table littered with Ordnance pamphlets during breakfast and luncheon, but spent all of his time gassing with Willy Claghorn on the Female of the Species- Customs, Habitat and Life. His brother has paved the way for Chick the Second, and the West Coast awaits him as a Native Son, but we have reason to believe that he will not wander from the bright lights. He can be a splendid little officer and he will settle down soon, but the light that lies in women's eyes still fascinates him as a Fata Morgana. 101 Robert igusttnitk QEHYUBP Philadelphia, Pennsylvania UBobH llMick7l iilrishli Buzzardg Reina Squad. O look at Mick's face one wouldn't think that he is the most notorious man in the class, but he has had about as much sea duty on the Reina Mercedes as anyone, even going so far as to spend his Second Class leave there. But then, Mick always was a sea- going man. Youngster Cruise, when everyone else was sick, Mick ate enough curry and rice for six, and said, "This reminds me of the days on the Adams." To get into trouble doesn't, worry him at all, if anything, it broadens the grin on his face and causes his eyes to twinkle just a little more. Mick's cheerful smile made him the friend of all the Plebes. They used to visit his room every night and perform for him, just to see his happy smile. Mick did more towards raising Plebes in the good old way than any man in the class. As for studying, it goes against his grain. The Irishman can't see the use in studying when he can go over to a section room, write boards full of flowery words on nothing at all, and get a good mark for it. just try to argue with him sometime. He will convince you that black is white, because his vocabulary is so far above the average man's, that you can't refute his statements, simply because you don't know what they mean. Mick I " ' Q j stands well up in his studies with a minimum amount of work to r V Y show for it. He almost bilges the Dutchman every year 'by his V rough-house tactics during study hours. A racket from his room is l ' sufficient evidence that he is at home. To see him at his best is to see him at a pink tea. With a cup of tea and several macaroons balanced on one arm, he bids fair to set the fair sex's hearts awhirl. We don't know whether he is in love or not, but he gets a big scented letter nearly every day, and it is rumored that he bought a miniature. Mick will always be a welcome addition to any mess, because he does so much towards making the occasion a jolly one. He could make you enjoy yourself at a funeral.

HE Dutchman was a woman-hater till Christmas of Youngster Year, but since then- well, somehow things have changed. Ever since then he has settled down. He even quit smoking cigarettes his First Class year-just why, nobody knows. Don't ask him about it because it's an embarrassing question. If you ever want anything from a Pin to a pill for St. Vitus' Dance, you will find it all in Dutch's locker. He has a combined hardware and drug store there. He nearly drove the Sixth Company wild Second Class .Year with his crazy tactics: whether it was pills or love that did it, no one knows. Dutch is ffOm Philadelphia and is mighty proud of it. just ask him about the Central High School boys. But when Dutch begins to talk about furniture and apartments, it's no place for a single man. He is a great inventor and expounder of theories. If he only had time, he says, he would make a fortune out of his inventions. He even went so far as to invent an automatic navigator to do away with sights and day's work. Just get him started, and if 3 T A VA you don't know him as well as we do he will make you believe he's ., another Thomas Edison inside of five minutes. He will argue with M "'- . -ll any prof on any subject, just for the sake of an argument. The fact 9' l that Dutch is in dutch doesn't worry him in the least. K.

No one has ever ousted him from the position of anchor man in "Qi 'R Dago. He intends to stay in the Navy and wouldn't be anywhere ' " ' else for all the world.

HE Doctor came to us with the firm intent and purpose of carrying away all the honors in the place, but long association with our methods convinced him that true merit is never recognized, so why should he worry? Doc has a confident manner and a four-bar-linkage walk, doesn' t give a rap for constituted authority and wonders how the Fleet is getting along without him. Seriously, though, Carpenter is a very practical and efficient man. He came in with greater knowledge of things electrical than most of us depart with, and his learning has been freely shared with those who have asked for help. He is as conversant with sea lore as the author, and can apply his theories with accuracy and precision. ' He has spent so much time in the hospital that he knows the nurses by their Christian names and yearns ever and anon for the sun parlor in that west ward. His trouble has appar- ently been disintegration, for his frame has a bad habit of shearing rivets and coming apart. Doc hasn't contributed much more than his support to athletics, though he does play a good game of tennis and a fair one of golf. He went out for the sabre team to please Orley Furey, but the work wasn't congenial. We are firm believers in the I. C. S. if Doc speaks truth, for his assertion of the manifold virtues of their system would convince the Thomas of Scripture. To that sterling institution of learning he ascribes his early success and present education, for Naval Academy methods have never appealed to him. We fancy that Doc has a brilliant future in store, for he already shows signs of a mind the equal of Edison's. His famous comment on the derivation of average E. M. F. is still green in the minds of the Fifth Section. "Input :rf output -4- all losses, Mr. Carpenter, what kind of a machine?" A "Shunt."

From a long association with the hardest gang that ever caught one in the sweltering heat of Plebe Summer, Paul had a fine start on the Primrose Path, but regeneration in the form of one of Earth's Angels came to our Prodigal Son, and now he is the mildest of men. ' ' Goen had P. M. E. QNo, Kaydets dear, not Practical Military Engineering, but previous military experiencej.

If there be any chance, even the smallest chance, to rhino about the whichness of Whflf. Paul will be there with both feet and a cynical smile. He can pessimize in four languages, besides the deaf and dumb alphabet, and Braille type for the blind. . As a charter member of the Idlers' Club, Paul early made a name for himself as an expert Ill destructive criticism, but he has abandoned his early pursuits for the gentler pastime of penning billets-doux. Keereest, how he does love that lady! Only Doc Carpenter, his faithful wife by the Act of the Senior Assistant and the Hand of God, can tell how many reams he consumes Per diem, but he has kept his amount available negative by buying all the stamps in the Store. M When the juice of the jocular grape, quoting Lyle, nee Khayyam, loosens Paul's tongue, he can move his listeners to tears by the depths of his introspective nature. All the unfathomed woe of a blighted love, a cruel Fate and a notorious career at St. john's, Delafield, comes welling up from his heart, and makes his auditors weep with him. Many is the night that Davison has dried his own salt tears as he tucked Paul into his hammock on the Maine at Villefranche and bade him forget the troubles engendered by too many tomats. His career as a squire of dames was short and sweet, for without much searching he found one so fair and faithful, that he has quite forsaken the evil ways of his youth and has settled down to a life of peace and epistles. That the influence has had its good effect is evinced by his exemplary conduct and devotion to duty, and the best we can wish him is the continuance of the gentle reign forever. 105 U1 Zbewiitt Qllarr Huntington, West Virginia "T. D." "T. DeWitt" Battalion Commissary, Choir C4, 3, 2, IJ. D., or T. DeWITT, as he is known to us, is diminutive in stature and from appearances one would judge that he had spent much time in the saddle. He hails from Hunt- ington, of the Panhandle State, and still believes it a city, in spite of his acquaintance o with Annapolis. In his first three years he was never noted for efhciency, but his work as battalion commissary First Class Year 'was especially noteworthy. He was on the job all the time, really making the Ethiopian waiters toe the mark, as well as giving us a variety in our food. Carr does not court favor, does not take an active part in Academy affairs, and keeps much to himself. As a Plebe, however, he was famous among the upper classes for his ratiness. He is too slight and small for athletics, and most of his spare time is needed for boning. Usually on liberty he is seen with his roommate, and this is one of the few cases in the Academy where roommates run together everywhere. The class room holds no happiness for this West Virginian, as he has had to bone consist- ently. He uses common sense in studying, not waiting until the , . , , , eleventh hour and attempting then to make up previous laxness.

In spite of these qualities, he is not a Y. M. C. A. man and seldom attends , 5 their meetings. ' Youngster Year he started heavy in the fussing line, as do so many of those green Passed-Plebes. His attentions have dwindled off until First Class Year he seldom danced the light fantastic at our hops. 106 bail Morgan Porters Falls, West Virginia "P1unky" Buzzard, Sharpshooter. HEN Nature designated Porters Falls as Morgan's home port, she little recked what dire distress hundreds of others hailing from other ports were to suffer, for Gail's chief topic has been the glories of West Virginia, since the kindly Congress- man shipped him away, and Gail, being Irish, has a smooth line that flows readily and upon all possible occasions. Slinging the bull, however, is merely Gail's avocation. His vocation, aside from the trifling Iriatters of recitations and drills, is fussing. At this Morgan is artist and connoisseur com- bined. Practice makes perfect, says the proverb, and practice in this particular has been his Watchword. Plebe Year he got away with fussing four girls to a boat race, and to say that he has been coming strong ever since, is but to ut it mildly. . Gail has been a true wife and twin brother to Carr for four years. A better matched pair It would be hard to find. Together they have borne the brunt of the fray, and together they emerge, unscathed. A lone midshi man in the wilds of Utah one August morning was accosted and asked if he knew T. DeWitt gan' and Gail Morgan. But if Morgan is a fusser, he is one whose company gives genuine delight. With the Garmarks of a true lady's man, none can surpass him in gallantry and devotion, and ' f like a knight-errant of old, his spare hours are spent in dreaming of a heaven where all eternity will be available for the worship of his lady-loves. Morgan is not all fusser, however, even though at times it seems as though without girls there could have been no Gail. On the cruises he was a jolly and likeable companion, contributing his share of cheer to the common stock in the roughest weather, when the gang decidedly needed it. His smile, which has a habit of spread- ing all over his face, is a frequent occurrence, appearing when the joke is on him as well as when the other fellow is leaning over the rail, so to speak. Taken altogether, Morgan is a congenial, lovable friend, who will stick with you through thick and thin, and we wish this neat, dapper little Irishman the best of Fortune's favors through a long and prosperous career.

That expresses Carry better than pages of writing would. Care-free, happy-go-lucky, he takes his fun where he finds it, and he manages to find plenty of it. He has gotten away with stunts enough to bilge the Regiment, yet his luck has always stuck by him until First Class year, when an overly-officious jimmy-legs was the cause of his downfall, and it might be added, of a Christmas and New Year's Day on the "Reina." Nevertheless, a few minutes after he had been ragged he was laughing at his misfortune as heartily as any of the rest of us. Carry came to us from the "Citadel," where he obtainedhis "previous military experi- ence." On the strength of that, he became three-striper of the Third Division Plebe summer, anddthe competitive drills that his division didn't win might be counted on the fingers of one han . We nearly lost him Plebe Year, through his strong dislike to encourage the Academic Depart- ments, but he finally eluded their clutches, and was very much with us in Antwerp and Paris. Bugs' birthdays were memorable occasions in the old Sixth. Youngster Year he once became so wild that the whole gang was required to restrain him. "Yessuh, there were ten men with a block and tackle pulling on my thumb." It was a ten-man job, too. The "dear old darling's" athletic pursuits were limited to the acquisition of a set of soccer numerals, and to acting as ring-master his last year of the three-ring circus in the gymnasium. In the dis- charge of his managerial duties he showed the skeptics that under- neath his careless exterior lay a wealth of executive ability and sound horse-sense. Since the wine mess was abolished Carry has often said that he is going into the Marine Corps. We sincerely hope not, for if he does some J. O.'s mess is going to lose a most congenial member.

Bill's chief claim to undying fame is his ability as a leader forth of goats. These refractory animals have no terrors for himg indeed, they eat out of his hand, for he is a true genius. Allow him but one glimpse of your weak spot and all is lost. But there lurks no hidden sting behind his humor, and everybody but the victim pro tem enjoys it, so the funeral is on the gang. Revenge is sweet, however, and Mahoney occasionally has a fall taken out of him, to the huge delight of those who are most often to leewardtof his attentions. For three years Casey's proudest boast was that the lilt of music and the tang of tea awakened in his bosom no responsive note, but eight bells of the mid-watch, january first, found him drag- ging to a hop, and a fair prediction is that the case is to be chronic. There may be no mike like a Red Mike, but from all indications there is also no more enthusiastic devotee of the fair young things than a converted Saturday night snoozer. We hate to give Bill away, and yet it would be shirking our duty to neglect to mention him in his capacity as a submarine. A charter member of the once-a-week swimming team, one of his most novel and fetching little tricks is to sink to the bottom of the pool and squat there until some noble diver fishes him out by the hair. Whether or not he does this to arouse the sympathy of the instructor in charge has never been divulged. Taken from any viewpoint, Mahoney is a good class- mate. If you want to rhino, he has a ready ear, if he can do anything for you he is always glad to do it, he is no fair- weather friend. In studies he represents the happy medium between the savoir and the mediocre man. In practical work he is quietly and unassumingly efficient.

These confirmed red mikes are an uncertain quantity anyway. ' If every man in the Regiment supported athletics as Pop does, we would wipe up the Army every time. Every practice he was on the side-lines, encouraging and boosting, the kind of stuff that the 50 per cent. is made of.

He has tried hard for three cruises to keep his lunch in its proper compartment, but even at anchor the motion is too much for him. So the Navy loses another pampered pet, and the Army gains an excellent soldier. Oscar had a long and arduous career in the tin soldiers before he came to us, and traces of it still survive in the rakish angle of his cap and his first sergeant walk. The Academy was a keen disappointment to a lad of his military attainments, and Oscar chafed for a year to have a hand at reforming the institution. Youngster year gave him an opportunity, and he has been raising Plebes in the ways of the dough boys ever since. His former training made Oscar quite a hand with the S ringfleld, and he dangles some bronze things on his manly bosom, besides gracing the Rifle Team with his presence. His only trouble has been his friends, for they pester the little man from morning until night, with much remonstrance on the part of Oscar, who struggles right manfully against the biggest of them. He has spent his spare time in keeping Dip Moon on the straight and narrow, a task worthy of a Hercules, for Dip is i such a rounder. i In many a brilliant action with our perennial foes, Oscar has dragged victory from the ashes of defeat, and to-day stands a living monument to the principle of the conservation of energy. He bases his claim to a niche in the Hall of Fame on his splendid conduct in the war with Steam, in which he defeated single handed the ships-of- the-line "The Rat" and "Tubby Oak," both throwing twice the weight of metal of his own craft. The Plebes tell wild stories of Oscar's raids Second Class Year, U..,., . ""u:.. but we know that such stories are prejudiced. If discipline in the , Fourth Class ever goes to pieces, you will probably find Oscar on the sick list or on leave, for while he has breath to breathe, he will see that Doyle's Laws are enforced and obeyed. 112 Bun Barber Munn Kokomo, Indiana Hnippyn HD.

There are many men in a class who never startle the Academy by a comet-like career of glory, but who nevertheless go far toward making foundations for class activities. Moon has been of that sort-persistent and con- servative, without the curse of an imagination, or disturbing out- bursts of animal spirits. The re-deal of stripes gave Dip command of the Fearsome 7"'-, Fifth. He wasn't naturally inclined that way, and his petty officers didn't give him much help, but he achieved a pretty fair success with what had long been known as a hopeless gang of thugs. He conscientiously did his damnedest, and now the Fifth is rounding into shape. The necessity of protecting Oscar Cauldwell from the terrible Gilliam has worn Dip's hair thin in spots, and has furnished most of the excitement of his otherwise placid life. All in all, he has had a pretty workaday existence among us, and his nature still refuses to give him a rest. 113 Cllibarles Burrell Client! Louisville, Kentucky ushortyn saRummyr1 Buzzard. HORTY is one of those ducks who sets the ladies astir. He is not a fusser of the con- spicuous type like Doc Krez and Gracie Wills, but the kind that gets there in an unas- suming way and makes a big impression. Out in 'Frisco they all wanted to know where that great big, ta'll fellow with the reddish tint in his hair, had received his training. When Shorty starts out on the warpath, all of the other wearers of the pink N had better stand from under, as he hypnotizes them from long range. He has taught his faithful frau Fuzz all his tricks and he now CFuzzD can tell you all of the dope on the moonshine stills of Kentucky. Charles is as congenial with the men as with the ladies. In a life like ours it is a great relief to come upon a man in this motley crew, to whom you can go and ask a favor, with the knowledge that it will be granted without your having to give the whys and wherefores. That is how it is in dealing with Charlie. lf it is reasonable the deal is as good as closed. It is a sterling quality in any man and without doubt one of the earmarks of a good shipmate. It would be line to be able to give an account of how Shorty cleaned up on the Army a few years ago, but he rather looks to languid leisure as a main sport, although he has done his share toward making the class football team do its duty on a couple of occasions, and every now and then he turns up on the river with a trusty oar.

UZZ is an odd name, but we have been unable to find out why it was hung on Julian. Anyhow, what's in the name? julian is one of the most sincere, open-hearted men that you will ever meet. He is very conscientious and does everything he has to do with a thoroughness that is good to see. No matter how seldom you see Fuzz, he makes p you feel as though you are his best friend. Perhaps he can do the same with the fairer sex. The dear old South gave us Soche, and he is as true a representative of the true Southern gentleman as can be found.

Did he fall? It is not known, but it is known that there is a girl back home who takes a good deal of his time and ink. Every hop, without exception, finds julian with some pretty lady. How he does it is a mystery, but he always manages to get on the inside track. where there are ladies concerned, and his adeptness at juggling a tea cup keeps him there. Despite all his gayeties he works just enough to keep him on the safe side of infinity. Julian aspires for a ship in the Gulf and if you are ever down that way pay him a visit, and he will show you a lively time besides giving you all the grape juice you can drink, for he is a jolly good fellow and can always make the most out of any opportunity that presents itself. 115 Bicbarh Rapmnnh Qllagburn Tacoma, Washington Uwilliefl HBiuH HDickH Battalion Staff Petty Oflicer. ICHARD RAYMOND CLAGHORN made his debut into Crabtown society at the tender age of fifteeng whereupon the boys hung upon him the immortal nickname "Willie" But as a candidate he soon proved that he did not deserve this name. Plebe summer went by fairly easy for him, but when Academic Year rolled around his troubles began, for his innocent appearance and unassuming manner made him easy prey for all the hard upper classmen at his table. His chief pastime was memorizing extracts from Knight's and "The Great Destroyer." i Willie has found the Academy life rather dull, for it' lacks the three things he likes best: romance, adventure and good eats. Accordingly, he whiled away the first three years reading the "Adventure," playing grand opera on the Victrola, and acting host at frequent banquets in his room. The aftermath of these, however, was generally a trip to the hospital. Nevertheless, all went well with Willie until June Week of Second Class Year, when he ceased to be a dreamer and awoke with a sudden realization of the consequences of dragging blind. Until this time he had only dragged occasionally and then to him it was a gruelling ordeal compensated only by an occasional punching of a meal ticket. But this time it was a different story, for Willie changed from slow and easy-going to a track athlete of unusual ability, especially when beating Cutie out to Bunny's. Further- more, on the cruise his thoughts changed from menus to what was l going to be in that OJ page letter when he arrived in port. l First Class Leave he made a flying trip West, returning with a Uveni, vidi, vici," and by the Army Game a contract with Gorham had cinched the deal. Now, thedifference between the ideas ofaTacoma boy at the delicate age of fifteen and an experienced First Class man is enormous, but throughout this great transformation Dick has retained two character- istics-frankness and sincerity. He has never played for popularity, but all of us who know him can't help but like him, for he has always portrayed these traits in everything that he has said and done. 116 Qlha Eiarnh jllllnurz Larned, Kansas UAlvaH HAjaxU Buzzard. JAX has allowed the four years to bother him less than any other man in the class. He is one of the very few who could "star if he would bone," but he has never con- sidered that a star is worth the trouble and has always been satisfied with standing fairly well on a minimum amount of study. Alva cares more for the philosophical than the practical side of life, and has consequently spent most of his time reading novels and magazines. Nevertheless, he has always come through with the marks, and stands well in spite of this handicap. He has always fussed to everything, except when unforeseen circumstances have inter- fered with his social plans. However, a day of fussing usually leaves him in a melancholy mood for a week afterwards, and the only thing that will comfort him is a consultation with Solly. If you have ever seen Ajax take a swimming test you will realize the truth of the state- ment that "not only a ship's engines and propellers, but also her form, must be properly pro- portioned to make speed through the water." Alva's strokes are perfect, but he lacks protection against entering seas and is consequently rendered slightly unsea- worthy in a storm. He has never been on any of the athletic teams, but when it comes to wrestling and boxing don't judge him from his looks, for he will generally fool you.. If you don't believe it, ask Carney. Furthermore, he could have made his RNT, but he looked on rifle shooting as he does on boxing-it would be all right if he had a thousand years to live, but as it is, life is entirely too short to bother with such things. A Alva never says much to anybody. He will talk when you do and you can never get him excited, nor can you ever lead out his goat. He is not much on springing jokes and grandstand wit, but if you want a friend who will do the right thing by you at all times-one who will always do his utmost for you-Ajax is that man. 117 QEhtnin Jfrihlep Clinrbrane Bismarck, North Dakota uBunnyn Class Crest Committeeg Buzzard. HO would think to look upon this cherubic countenance that the grand old man- almost-of the Navy was pictured there. But here he is, boys-Methuselah hasn't a thing on him and neither has Dad nor Pat. He is hot-headed enough to be taken for a Son of Dixie, and has been in these parts so long that he talks like an An- napolis fish peddler, but lo and behold, he hails from wild and wooly No'th Dakota, home of prairie dogs and coyotes, whose melodious voices still call to Olie, begging him to stay away. CThis is pretty deep, but Olie savvies it.j He can't remember when the Navy didn't have some kind of a hold on him-as an aspiring successor to Big Bun those dozen or so years spent as candidate, B. C., bilger, and now finally as a regular guy. But in the words of the poet, what's worth having is worth waiting for, and now that the bacon is nearly ready to be clutched, nobody can truthfully say that this fuzzy-headed little rascal hasn't been a true exponent ofthe game of watchful waiting. He is thinking seriously of taking a finishing course in elocu- tion and the dramatic art at Lehigh as soon as possible Cwe're getting deeper and deeperj, and when he does, all the Lehights stand from under, for he's a bad man once he gets started. From all indications he's on his way, and it must be said I that he usually gets what he is after.

In the first place he was getting too .old to go on with his adventures, then, too, his fatal something-he doesn't know what it is-was keeping him in hot water, and lastly, he nee ed new audiences-more worlds to conquer. So poor old Ikky said one night: "Mother, I'm going in the Navy." He cameg he saw, and he has since held many a group of listeners fascinated and with bated breath. His tales are as different from each other as they are from themselves, and dates and places now and then become confused, but the Weak Old Man only wants to while away the time, and if there are a few Cynics and skeptics, what of it? Triteness is seldom employed to advantage, but in this case the old dope about "the fusser of note" is wholly applicable. This dashing man, that all the girls think a full-blooded Sioux, IS perfectly impartial, he loves them all and needless to say, they are all enamored at first sight -if you don't believe the Lucky Bag, ask him-that's how we found out. But his handiness with the girlies is by no means his only accomplishment: in his four years' sojourn in the Wilderness the most strenuous form of exercise he has indulged in has been raising a cigarette to his lips, and when there is no one to listen he leaves it there. Moreover, he has a typical sick bay face--his pitiful air has earned him many a day's rest in S. Q. or over across + the creek on the hill. l Between Eddie and the companion of his bosom, Jimmie, there has been no graft or O. C. dodging scheme that has been overlooked. Generally they work out to the satisfaction of all concerned, but once in a while Jimmie, with laudable guile, dodges the flames of retribution and leaves poor Eddie to get burnt. But still they're friends, and when they sidle off you can all stand by for something good-maybe. This remarkable old character by rights should have a separate private little Lucky Bag-this abridged account of his multifarious activities is so incomplete that it is little short of slanderg if you don't already know him you have truly missed a hot sketch.

Why, that Maxwell Cole, late of the Navy, is about to join their ranks, of course. You may wonder whence comes this decision, but if you have ever seen a Gyrene officer sauntering along the streets of some small sun-baked banana-republic village, looking as if ready for any emergency, and not caring very much what that emergency might be, you would appreciate for what purpose our friend's nonchalant bearing has been developed through these many years. He has cultivated an attitude of general disapproval toward the powers-that-be, and that- will-be, which he delights in airing to those who will listen, but we know that underneath it all there lies a very good realization of the real value of the practical application of such doctrines. To call him a fusser is to understate the case. Never a hop passes but that he may be seen or heard discoursing sweetly to some fair damsel, on subjects ranging from her own attractive self to his chagrin at being stymied on his last trip to the links. His loves are as many as the chairs in the mess hall, and his path is strewn with the broken hearts by which his annual visits to Washington may be traced without difficulty. On cruises he is the delight of those who do not appreciate their advantages. Let anyone who does not feel able to express his lofty sentiments come around and supply a little data, and Max will produce a triumph of denunciatory philippics that will satisfy the most rhino. When Max first joined our number, he was possessed of an exceedingly hot temper, but by dint of stern self- repression he has demonstrated his mastery over it, a very necessary qualification for his new duties, where firmness without haste is a prime virtue. We all unite in wishing him the best of luck in his chosen branch of the Service, and trust that his many good qualities will bring him success.

ENRY JAMES is the living embodiment of all that goes to make a successful matinee idol. He entered the Academy imbued with a supernatural grace and an easy manner, attained after many years of hard and .assiduous study in foreign strands, a gift of gab whether he "gabs" in English, French, Italian, German or one of the 736 A dialects found in the Tyrol, and--we almost forgot--a natural gift for spelling: accord- ing to Mr. Schadmann, his one attribute. Plebe Year was full of trials for Henry. His life was constantly menaced by the Math. Department, but his Fiddle and an inherent desire to stick, proved, respectively, heart balm and the right tonic. Speaking of the fiddle, whenever you walk along the corridor and hear the exquisite strains of Nobody Home's Hungarian Goulash from Dante's "Inferno," you may in- stantly realize that "jimmy" is becalmed in the Doldrums, and unkindly taking it out on those unfortunate enough to be present. I First Class Year James, now of recognized dignity, was appointed Social Aid. Automatically 1715 bearing, of which he had partly lost the natural' grace and foreign manner of heel-kicking, returned, and once more he was fitted for any kind of duty, from attache and General Aid for Foreign Affairs, to the Aeroplane Corps, to which he had voluntarily offered his services at 4 the commencement of trouble with Mexico, Youngster Year. Henry has many redeeming qualities, such as a deep- rooted faith in "Alice in Wonderland" and the "Hunting of the Snark." He develops, upon intimacy, a nature full of understanding, rich in common sense, and replete with the traits that go to make up real character. In short, james Henry White will make his mark wherever he goes, and he will undoubtedly make that mark sooner than a great many of the more brilliant men of the class, a fact that you realize when you get to know the man.

To call him versatile would be but to state the fact, and yet even his friends must admit that Buck's genius is along lines which are closely related. His roll of honor includes a faithful devotion to the art of the foil, itern the glee club, item the mandolin club, item the late lamented bugle corps. His faithful companion and guide, philosopher, friend and partner in many a wordy battle, Halpine, could not stand the pace and allowed Hook to woo him away, but Buck found a second spouse in Fritz and theirs have been the joys of true love. Since Plebe Year Buck has been one of the staunch upholders of the reputation of the "Wooden First Company." His type of savviness has never appealed to the man behind the mark-book, and his diploma marks the successful end of a four years' fray. As a classmate Buck leaves little to be desired. He is always cheerful, able to take all the running that comes his way without a peep, ready to do plebe to five-striper.

And speaking of hops, dear reader, you should see Buck hop. The best of it is that this is but incidental in his Saturday and Sunday occupations. Need we say more? The great American forte is said to be argument, and here is where Buck shines. If you can convince him that he is wrong-without showing him, you are going some. He goes on the principle, "Be sure you're wrong, but don't admit it," and we are not so sure it isn't a good one for a prospective officer.

L OMING from a long line of sailormen one would expect Fritzy to be a swashbuckling pirate, but he isn't. He is a gentleman and a scholar, the latter being especially evident when the semi-anns draw nigh. Imbued with the spirit of his immortal ancestors, he loves a fine fight, and year after year he has coaxed the Profs into his trap, only to vanquish them in the fierce hand-to-hand struggles of the exams. Fritzy has a heart of gold, and though his advances are often met with rebuffs from those Who do not know him, his gentle spirit suffers not a whit, for he sees good in all men. Patient and long-suffering and courteous to a fault, he has lived among us in a kindly glow of friendliness and many are the dinner bids he has dispensed. When it comes to entertaining the ladies, Fritzy is there with a constant supply, albeit 2111 occasional paving block. He believes it his duty and sees one or more on hand for each hop. Who has failed to spot him at our famous balls? Semper fdclis- and de morluis nil nisi bonum. Athletically he has been hampered by undue length of limb and a sudden and dangerous 21'Owth. His famous bolero reefer and pea-jacket overcoat give graphic approximations to his terrific increase in altitude, and he has grown nearly tall enough to match his feet. Nevertheless, he PlayS hard at class athletics, and if our memory faileth us not, he has numerals to his credit. This Lucky Bag owes much to his talent with the pen and brush, for without his clever drawing we would have been at a loss for decoration. With very slim margins in more than one subject, he has spared neither time nor effort in the production of many creditable works of art and the class owes him a debt of gratitude for his earnest efforts. As to his merit in the Service, we have yet to see a Craven who has not been a splendid officer, and Fritzy bears the name well at the Academy. It is hard to tell much about ability when the subject under the glass holds only an appointment as a petty oliicer, but we are willing to back Fritzy in the Fleet sweepstakes for places at least. 123 Qlibnmas valentine flinnper Media, Pennsylvania "Tom" "Roomy" "Roommate" "Buck" Hustlers CID, Football Numerals 13, 215 Soccer A Numerals, Track Numeralsg Manager Track Team. EHOLD, gentlemen, our own "Roommate" Cooper, Roomy for short. Here we have one of the deepest and subtlest members of our class. He has but to smile, with that good-natured, don't-be-afraid-of-me smile, for his friends to put their heads together to dope out what Roomy has up his sleeve. One day-it was a Thursday, we remember- the day of our weekly sacrifice to the Dago Department, Roomy presented the Prof with an unusually feeble attempt. The section could hardly disguise their pity. The Prof ejaculated the Dago equivalent of "Lo, thy offense is rank, it smells to Heaven!" A few close friends sought out Roomy after the recitation, to express their sympathy, but found him bubbling over with a mysterious mirth. Completely nonplussed, they begged him to have a heart and not to keep their nerves tingle-ingling any longer. Finally, Roomy came through. "Boys," he said, "it's too good to keep. I knew my lesson perfectly, spent two hours on it, but for all the Prof knew, I hadn't cracked a book!" This is but a sample of Roomy's tricks. He has a great variety, and one almost feels pity for the poor fellows whom he makes the butt of his constant witticisms. Cooper is not all humorist, however. He distinguished himself as a regular on the best "Hustler" team we have had in years. For the whole season he took his knocks and bruises and worked his head off every afternoon, helping to lick the Varsity into the shape that made them play a better game than they had in them against the Army. And as a crowning touch, an unfortunate breach of discipline prevented him from even watching the game from the stands. Not a rhino from him, though. His friends did all the whining that was done. Roomy isn't savvy, Roomy isn't distinguished, he doesn't wear stripes and the ladies do not call his dancing divine, but young Wellington was a dunce, young Bonaparte was a nonentity, Grant couldn't make good at farming, and Stonewall jackson blushed when his name was spoken in a treble key.

It is well known that these gentlemen are never the last to commence a fight and never the first to finish one. William Leo has maintained their reputation. Faster halfbacks than Red have made the Varsity teams, and bigger men have Won football N's at Annapolis, but a harder fighter or a more tenacious last ditch man never pulled on a football shoe. Red has been like a fish in water on the lacrosse field. He plays the game well, he has good form and he inspires his team with a charge of his own spirit. The LNT he wears is a well-earned honor that he hastwon a hundred times over by hard fight and clean play. .For three years Red carried on a single-handed combat against oddsg in fact, against considerable odds, for he arrayed himself against an entire class. Many men have doubted his discretion and judgment in undertaking this campaign, but none could fail to admire the nerve and tenacity with which he stood by his guns. There were many times when a graceful bow would have saved Red a hard smash, but he held his neck stiff and took his medicine like a man. Red acquits himself rather well in class-room, and he is a very pleasant man with whom to undergo the academic treatment, because he is utterly non-greasy and his good nature is never ruffled by poor luck or a barking Prof. Red's ideas on some subjects differ radically from the current opinion of the class and there are, perhaps, not many men whom Red finds without fault, but he is very sincere and honest in his convictions and he does not air them unless provoked to do so. He stands up to the letter of the rules he has made for himself and his conduct has always been that of a gentleman. 125 walter ggllll ftllutnles Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii "Walter" "Bull" "Massa" "Elephant Eye" "Le Bool-bool" Buzzardg Soccer Numerals.

Bull is, to all who know him, not a dreamer.

As a quiet, retiring Plebe he cast his lot with the equally quiet-appearing Monty Gibson, but the close association in their palatial Plebe abode must have disclosed the hard base under Fat's soft exterior, for Youngster Year found Dolly in a new role.

The reversion and coursefon the new tack continued and on the West Coast Dolly proved himself to be right up among them all, and a worthy candidate for the gold aiguillettes. Except for his transitory tendency to rough-house, he has always been a quiet, somewhat reserved fellow. Consistent, non- greasy, work has placed him well up in the class, and it was doubtless this that attracted the attention of the authorities to that quietly efficient Mr. Sutherland.

This man has many distractions which attach importance to his romantic and debonair appearance. He is an editor on our distinguished contemporary, the Log: he swells the rousing chorus of the choir with his Caruso-like carolings and handles a dueling sword with the eclat and skill of a debutante eating raw oysters. His character is of a deep and devious nature, for beneath his square and kindly exterior he conceals a will of iron which drives him ever onward to his goal, namely, graduation, and a job on the fencing team. Perseverance is his strong suit. After a short but sweet sojourn in the ranks of our noble predecessors, '15, he looked back, saw us coming, and decided to fall out and wait, which he did, and he has had no difficulty in keeping up since. In fencing he has been less fortunate, but the reverses of former years have only served to whet his appetite for more work, and every afternoon finds him banging at a button with as much energy as if the heart of a West Pointer were concealed behind it. Such persistence deserves its reward, and there seems to be every indication that his ambition will be rewarded this year. For three long years Halpine roomed with Lowell Cooper, but eventually the telepathic sympathy which bound kindred souls like his and Hook's, burst the bonds of restraint, and they now occupy together one of the palatial apartments with which Uncle Sam supplies those who are about to graduate. Halpine's many abilities ought to flt him for some position of usefulness in the Navy, whether it be the Aviation Corps Ctoward which he seems to leanj, or the Construction Corps, or the line, but we are sure that he will leave his mark wher- ever it be. "Now, altogether, fellows! 4-N yell, one Navy, and three U. S. A.'s." 128 Eernarh julsnm Elenkins Portsmouth, New Hampshire "Hook" "Hookly" Buzzardg Basketball N umerals. OR Heaven's sake, Hook, keep quiet! - This man, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the greatest "orators" of 1916. Be it morning, noon or midnight, Hookly can talk you deaf, dumb and blind on any ordinary subject in ten minutes, and in less than half the time if the subject pertains to girls, Russians, or Portsmouth-by Heck! But Hook's uniqueness is not confined to his oratorical abilities, for as a fusser he is quite unparalleled. It is a sad day when duty demands his presence elsewhere than at a hop, if a hop there be. A Plebe Year there were many things which made Hook famous. His inimitable brace and the fact that B. F. most decidedly did no! stand for Benjamin Franklin gave him a place in the Fourth Class Hall of Fame within a week. Since Hook joined us he has been greatly troubled with his ears, but somehow he has man- aged to scrape by each year until now it looks as though he will receive his commission with the best of us when they are handed out. ' In athletics Hook has made good in class basketball and was a member of the class football squad. First and Second Class Years he was on the Varsity basketball squad. At times Hookly's goat comes out for a frolic, much to the amusement of all hands except Hook. But these occasions are rare, since as a rule everything in Hook's vicinity is quite calm. And now comes the sad part of this story: According to all data obtainable from Dame Rumor, Hook has lost his heart to two girls! As yet the story has been neither denied nor confirmed, all that can be done is to wait patiently, for, contrary to "Hook's Law," Hook will not talk on this subject. From this it might appear that he is inclined to fickleness, but be assured that this is not soy Hook is constant and true-to them both.

YRON SCOTT DAGUE-with this name one would expect to see long, curly locks, a lean, sharp face with keen eyes, a pair of tortoise-shell glasses, fingers tinged yellow with innumerable cigarettesg but look above-your dream is shattered. Dague is somewhat of an athlete, an all-round athlete-that is, with respect to his girth. A bad knee prevented his playing football since his Plebe Year, otherwise .... Later he appeared as "'Lulu, the Diving Horse" in the plunge act at the swimming meetsg but all of the spectators were soaked every time he took the water, and as a result he retired to become a charter member of the Dague-Blackburn Social Club. As Staff Photographer of the Lucky Bag he has spent two years in the endless task of col- lecting photographs, chasing up individuals, superintending groups, and handling the Graflex. What the Bag would have been without his work is painful to conjecture, for even the artists have relied on him for a great part of their material. He has also taken pictures of houses in the Yard. "My name is Dague-"7 ask him about it. Plebe Year he stood twenty-three, but the number proved fatal: since then he has been content to bone the more radical novels of the day. During his earlier days, Fats was the target for abuse from every quarter--on the "Illinois," as we went forward to the scuttle butt and saw Fats' hammock with his mammoth bulk weighing it down--who ever failed to wallop him? Dague has found outlet for his musical talent in the position of . I accompanist for the Glee Club. "Them few chords" that serve as a preliminary to the efforts of the Glee Club are the melodies from his finger-tips. He has always been a fusser-all fat men are-but he could never decide-the embarrassment of "riches." He would groan, "Gee, I wish I knew which one to fuss." Fats is an awfully good scout: he has tons of good nature-if he hadn't, some of us who have made him the target for our practical jokes during our course here, would be walking around minus an arm or a leg. This same good nature and his ability to entertain will make him a mighty good messmate, and when it comes to the business side of our profession, Byron has the stuff.

He has entertained US often, and there is never a dull moment during a scene when he is on the stage. A plugger at class athletics-lack of size is the only thing that stands in the way of his having made good in several branches. Besides being an actor, Gus also possesses the qualities of a Belasco, and of late has become a producer of no mean ability. His Town Topics, the night of the Christmas Carnival in Smoke Hall, surpassed any show of its kind since carnivals were instituted. The local hits that were presented to the public on that particular occasion will long be remembered. Our first trip upon the briny deep brought sufferings severe to Jack. He found the forward gallery his constant hanging-out place until the waves subsided, and even then he walked about with none too much confidence in his pins. As soon as he adapts himself to all forms of wind and weather, Jack will be an ofiicer worth his salt, for he has just that required bit of ambition and earnestness in his makeup to make things go the right way as soon as he decides to push them along ahead of him. 131 jfrank Uliillilhur Micah 6 Peoria, Illinois usparrown uspign Buzzard: Basketball Numeralsp Lacrosse Nu- meralsg LNT.

Indeed, it used to be his proud boast that he wore the same size collar as sox, though we are slightly inclined to doubt this. The same uncanny agility has served him to good purpose in basketball and lacrosse, especially the latter, up where he has a stick to use on hostile craniums. Even a broken ' i nose in Class basketball, though it ruined his classic Roman profile and conferred on him a peculiarly gypsy-like style of pulchritude, has only added to his keen zest for personal combat. Indeed, he and Johnnie Wilkes spend most of their spare time inventing new methods of ruining an opponent.

ERE we have a rare specimen, R. E. Davison, hailing from St. Louis, but according to his tales, a resident voter of every community in these United States. His activities are varied, all, however, being in the line of hard work. Nominally Business Manager of this Lucky Bag, he has been far more than its financial agent, having been the Chief's right-hand man in any part of the work, from interviewing publishers to all-night' sessions over the typewriters. Property Man of the Masqueraders-if anything was needed to complete a stage setting-from a reproduction of Mona Lisa to a retired commodore's left epaulet-a casual mention of the fact to Davy, and at the next rehearsal the stage was graced with said picture or said epaulet. Asked how he had obtained them, he replied casually, "How about trimming the Grand Drapery?" CAsk him about the Doc's telephonej. As a member of the Class Committee he has stood firmly for what was right, and he contributed his full share to the efforts to "move the dogs along." For the last two years Davy has worn the "Brains is King" insignia on his collar. When Ralph gets going the Prof turns to the title page and puts on a surprised look when he doesn't find Dave's name there, but in spite of this effect, a classmate once said, "It's a pleasure to hear Davy recite." First Class Year he wore four stripes, which showed what the authorities thought of him despite his militaristic propaganda. To those who knew him, those four stripes stood as a mark of what Ralph had to put up with when the Second Battalion yeggs were loose. For a long while Dave spurned the social world-"empty," "meaningless," etc., but during his last year his earnest countenance has graced many a hop. He let it be known for a long while that a lone picture on his locker door stood for all his hopes and ambitions, but now-space prevents the narrative here-you will find it else- where in this book. The West Coast was the scene of his downfall and for some time after it was a case of "we slopers." For a long while Davy thought of going into the Army-the Artillery in fact. "This Navy is going to Hell!" he would tell us but now-it's far, far different. You see, he discovered we had a few ships on the West Coast, but even this has passed.

HEN Cornwall heard that he was leaving forever, what anguish must the village have known, for in those days he was the sweetest child that ever lived! Davison, struck by his gentle air and childlike beauty, picked him for a wife, and right away the trouble began. Imbued with an unholy desire to see the authorities in New Jersey before he'd bow tO them, Orley started by learning all the wily ways of putting them over. He adopted 35 a mask a docile air-but it concealed an outlaw's heart. For four long years he has baffled the powers-that-be, and now he flaunts his triumph in their faces, and leaves-the last of the Old Guard. A passionate longing for the outer air drove Orley out for every form of athletics, from bridge to baseball, and he has made good at almost everything he has tried. If there is a class Squad that he hasn't been on, or if there are numerals that he hasn't won, let the Captain stand forth and speak. Baseball and basketball knew his smiling face and curly hair, while a man- agership in fencing gave him a coveted trip to the center of creation. , He has fussed intermittently, like a Big Ben clock, but at no such regular intervals. He plunged heavily gn the West Coast, and no afternoon dansant at the California Building was complete without him. Orlando has never been forced to struggle for the festive 2.5, though the forests are not unknown to him. He has surveyed their depths from some of the tallest trees, but never for long at a time. If only he would believe that the gang is with him instead of against him, he'd get along well, but his guard is always up, lest the Commandant give him five stripes. 135 bihnep Qiherett Buhlep Laramie, Wyoming "Diddle" "Scrubby" Two Stripes, Rifle Team 'C3, QD, NNT, Sharp- shooterg Assistant Manager the Log QD, Mana- ger CID: GleeLClub CZ, U3 Choir C4. 3, 2, ID. I-IO'S that great big feller, with the deep ,bass voice? That's our Diddle, the pride of Laramie, the guardian of The Log's shekels, and the rock upon which the choir is built. Whence cometh that thunderous voice has always been an enigma. Verily, few of us are up on the mysteries of phrenology, but when we see those bumps above Diddle's ears start to swell, we begin to hunt for the Elliott Perfect Ear Protector, for it is a sure sign that the heavens are- about to fall. Dudley is one of those rare birds among the ninety per cent.-a man with good, sound, common sense. It has been said that midshipmen are like chickens in this particular, but with Diddle the resemblance only climbs as high as the breastbone-it doesn't get to his head. Well endowed with a clear-thinking, analytical mind, conservative and deliberate in reaching his conclusions, his opinions are usually sound, and always worth listening to. Furthermore, he has the courage of his convictions. Try to induce Diddle to do something he has set that little bean of his against doing, and you might as well try to coax heat out of a radiator on the ground deck. Witness those half stripes on that disreputable sleeve. That he has business ability is pretty well demonstrated by the financial prosperity of The Log during the past year. A pretty good sort of man to have alongside you in a pinch, you say, and you are quite right. When he goes into the Service, he is bound to command the respect of all who come in contact with him, superiors or inferiors, just as he has commanded our respect here in the Academy. It is not only respect that we give Diddle, either. We know that his heart is in the right place, and that his friend- ship would stand the test of personal sacrifice if you were in a hole. Who could help but warm to a man like that? Here's luck to you, Diddle, and may we have you with us in the Service for many years to come. Will he make a good ofllcer? You bet he will! just wait until you see him in his cocked hat and brass trou! 136 ?KnefIer flliltcginnis Effingham, Illinois Hsocii UMacH Buzzard. o 1 EE that little figure strutting along as if it owned the place, the one with the classic profile and the squatting motion of the legs?

In the first place, one need never worry about such mundane things as making arrange- ments, for be it understood, the Soc prides himself on his familiarity with the little niceties of cosmopolitan life, and gets more real pleasure out of waving a blase hand at the waiter than the rest of us do out of eating the dinner. In the second place, one cannot but enjoy being with a man who enjoys himself so much as Mac does on liberty. He fairly swells with content, and his good spirits radiate to others.

USSY is that rara avis, the childlike savoir. Endowed with an intellect that we all admire, and with a frame that we all envy, he is natheless the most infantile of all the stars. He can tell the boys more about the Calculus than old Woolsey himself-he has a far simpler solution of that "piece of chalk thrown at random" prob than any that have yet been devised-but as we said, Pussy is simple. You would never notice it-not at first. In fact, he wasn't always that way. Only after a year with Escritch, the Vacillating Virginian, did Pussy show symptoms-but now he is fully developed. Yet Pussy is no slouch-he has rowed in the big boats, played football with the regulars, and held a class championship in swimming. There isn't anything from Alpha COrionisJ to Omega COilJ that he wouldn't tackle, if there were sport involved. He is a hard-working, self- starting athlete, who trains like the Scotchman himself, and lives as clean and sporting a life as a man may. He has developed wonderfully since he first joined us, and we see no ending in sight at the time of writing, for Pussy's feet get bigger every day. He stars with ease, accuracy and precision. He has that ana- lytical mind so prized of engineers, and displays startling originality in devising ways and means. He hasn't much of a knack of instruct- ing others, but it certainly isn't due to a lack of willingness, for he labors like a Hercules with the uncut timber still standing in the Class. His career has been marked by a tragic succession of roommates, but he has learned to live in solitary confinement rather than take a chance and draw a second Duke. Esky damn near drove Pussy wild, and bilged himself in the process.

He has always regarded his home newspaper as strictly confidential, and nobody has ever got anything on him as they did on Trixie. Nevertheless, it is generally understood that Ike rates a good deal up in Oneida. At the beginning of Plebe Year Ike was considered lucky because he had a brother who was a hard First Classman, but big brother Neil left poor little Arthur to shift for himself. However, he was fairly reg and suffered no inconvenience except that he was unfortunate enough to be seated at the same table with Boob, Icky, and Hugo, who kept him well under weight at all times. Ike did have one close call when the Medical Department went split on him, but he fooled the doctors when he was the only one to pull sat on his ears. Ike has never been quite the same since Trixie left him, nor has he ever forgiven the steam department for breaking up his happy home. Then after bilging one roommate, the Senior 5 Assistant has refused to give him another victim, with the result that he has been a hermit ever since the beginning of Second Class Year. He is rather savvy and he has stood well with little boning and no greasing at all, except on the Cosmo and Red Book. In fact Ike is a well-balanced man. He has been a heavy fusser- and has never dragged a real brick either-a good dancer, and captain of the golf squad. Furthermore he can be made to see the funny side of the most practical joke on himself, and if you want someone who can make you enjoy a liberty, even in the worst port, just go with Ike.

He spent most of his Youngster Year on sick leave, and lost work that would have bilged an ordinary man-but which cost Chuck amatter of 40 numbers that he was well capable of standing-and which simply stood as what he had given up for football. When First Class Year really came the powers-that-be didn't let the matter of 40 numbers bother them and as a result Chuck was made the skipper of the Non-Reg Ninth. Chuck was also a member of our Plebe crew and while the injuries received in football prevented for a time his active participation in aquatics, Belindy refused to loaf and each spring sees him working on an oar.

He starred Plebe summer, and became greatly incensed when the Math Department jammed him on the tree for working plane geometry by calculus. Later he attempted to win undying fame by discovering the square root of -I. In order to avoid revision of the existing treatises on mathematical subjects, this brilliant feat was budded in the'nip. Alas, such is often the fate of genius. He learned soldiering in the crack 5th Regiment, M. V. M., and on the strength of this became our Plebe summer adjutant and battalion staff. Memory of his abilities endured so well that First Class Year he wore the three stars of the regimental ornament. Charley can shoot anything from a bean-blower to a six-inch gun. Youngster Cruise he made a perfect score with his gun. But his two specialties are the bull and a Springfield, with which he is equally proficient. Indeed, it is the usual conclusion of a match for him to be thrown overboard as high-gun. On the West Coast he upheld the honor of the Academy in a hastily- arranged riHe-match, by coming ashore from two months at sea, meeting the pick of the crack shots of the Pacific Slope, on their own stamping grounds, and sending them down to inglorious defeat. With the oats he is as good, if not better, than with a model 1903. Any of the 9th Company can sustain this statement most strongly. Cupid's arrows find an easy and conspicuous target in his heart at frequent intervals, but they also have just as happy a faculty of dropping out without even leaving a scar-that is, all except one. Nevertheless, his love affairs never trouble the rest of us, and his fiddle and yarns have cheered many a tedious hour at sea.

HERE are two things that he has demonstrated to us, namely: Indians are not the only animals that grow in Oklahoma, and all Swedes do not say "Ay ban." Oscar came to us a shy, quiet 'little man, but his gigantic pedal extremities and his marked general resemblance to "Ikky Buck" of comic fame soon brought him notoriety among his classmates. ' Having had lots of practice kicking ant hills on the prairies, Oscar went out for football Plebe Year, and has been out ever since. His diminutive stature is against him in that line of endeavor, but we respect and admire his pluck. He pulled through Plebe Year well to windward of a 2.5-witness the fact that he is still with us-thereby surprising many, among whom were numbered some of his instructors. But the greatest surprise of all, and one which left us gasping for weeks, was his antics june Week. He fussed, and she got a sat mark, even from the fiercest of Red Mikes, he dragged, and all the coming social aides starred her in dancing. By the time we had recovered from the shock, we were half-way to Antwerp, but we let him have it the rest of the cruise. Even at this late date, one has but to whisper to him M ,QQ A gently the name of "Lena," or hiss "Oglevitch," and the ll U ' . '1l1-' space betweeen his ears is bridged by a row of teeth, while "'f"5T"!'l""" every bristle in his crest droops. The Swede is a member of the old Seventh Company gang, and he has for four years been faithful and devoted wife to Admiral Rhudyg his heritage of Northern blood, coupled with his Western breeziness, serving to offset that Southern gentleman's easy-going philosophy of life. The ship that gets him, could she be run by her most junior officer, would be the kind we've dreamed about. 144 Qlhert jliklanes Skbuhp Carrollton, Georgia "Admiral" Buzzardg Crew Squad QQ, IJ. T is somewhat of a diflicult task to classify the Admiral--he belongs neither to "Our Crowd" nor to the "Gunmen"g he is neither a savoir nor a P. W. F., a fusser nor a Red Mike, a peer- less athlete nor a member of the Radiator Associationg a humorist nor a rhino artistg in short, the Admiral is simply the Admiral, and if you had known him as we have through four years of ups and downs, the name would mean more to you than the meaning of the term as stated by Webster. He goes at a "moderate speed, having due regard for existing circumstances and conditions." His capacity for hard work and his Navy Spirit are amply demonstrated by the two seasons he has put in with the Crew squad at the grueling work in tank and shell, simply to help Navy produce a real crew. He first attained fame on Youngster Cruise when he became a Charter member of the Lee Rail A. C. Having crossed the briny one way, and having "seen" Paris and other points of interest, salt water lost its place in his Chamber of Horrors, and from then on " i ' ' Dana was an I. C. S. seaman compared with our hero. Youngster Year saw his first bound into the calcium light of society. What happened we know not, but, following the method of deduction laid down by Sherlock Holmes and others, we would deduce that he spent some of his study hours doping out just whom he would have for ushers. That, however, remains to be seen. Rhudy's chief claim on the gilded oil stove, the highest award for sang froid under inauspicious circumstances, was that he roomed with the Terrible Oscar during the "Reign of Terror"-but to survive this era it was necessary for him to be inoculated with anti-goat-bite toxin at fre- quent intervals. Be that as it may, the Admiral is still serene and it is a safe bet that June 2d will see the Admiral's serenity undisturbed. 145 Clifhtnath lewis Cfritssnn Westhampton, New York "Swede" "Eric" One Stripe, Track Team Q3, 2, U, Track QNM Wrestling Team C215 wN'rg Football Numeralsg Varsity Football Squad Q4, IJ, Captain Class Football Team C3.

DARK-HAIRED Swede is one of nature's paradoxes, worthy to rank with Johnnie Walker. Aside from this lapse, Eric is as rational, level-headed a chap as an analysis of the Class of. 1916 can produce. In fact, his roommate claims he's not merely level headed, but that he can stand on any corner of the aforementioned cranium. This is base libel. We know for a fact that the best, he can do is to rest comfortably on his dome, with his hands off the deck. Aside from the rectangular qualities of his hat-rack, his ideas and statements are not so much well rounded as capable of being tied up in little square ackages and shipped by freight, C. O. D. El Sueco is one of the original strong men. With a illgure like Sandow's, he has systematically made himself strong, stronger and strongest, and few wrestlers can hope to capsize this staunch young bullock. Likewise, he runs like a deer and is the modest possessor of a medal for being in on the original breaking of the Academy relay record. In football he held down the job of bossing the class team and the hustlers from the strategic position of quar- terback. While engaged in this duty, he called forth from some fair admirer-"Why-he looks like a little general!" The Swede's strongest point is efficiency, and in search of this his natural inquisitiveness has led him into many kinds of hair- breadth adventures, such as saving drowning men, putting his fingers in things, etc. He has a little philosophy, of the type peculiar to all back- woodsmen, such as there was in Lincoln. Wanting to know the why and wherefore has caused him to discover a great many of the basic truths of life, and he has applied them with quaint con- sistency to his ideas and actions. Though by no means to the exclusion of his "more deadly" friends, he is a man's man, and the most lovable chap imaginable.

He filled the bill to perfection, even outclassing his sacrifice to comfort and clean living when he joined the firing gang on the Missouri and stood nearly the whole of one watch.

HAPPY is a worthy descendant of Fighting Bob. He may never discover any new methods of navigating, but if results are wanted just set him to work. He commenced his naval career with I9I5, but discovered his error in time to accept a commission as our Plebe summer four-striper. It took us some time to discover that, after all, he was only human, and that his piratical looking cutlass was only ordinary steel. He may not be anchor man in the Class, but he must be given credit for a most gallant try, being one of the strong links in the five-fathom shot. The Academic Board has often considered having his name printed on trees as a permanent part of the headings to save time. In fact, he is never happy unless unsat., and then-Lord how he does sleep! For the last three years he has taken a paternal interest in Hammy, guarding him tenderly even among the allurements of gay Paree. If you wish to start the anecdotes flowing, just men- tion Brussels and Luna Park. On Youngster Cruise he somehow got the idea that all demoiselles simply adored his pronunciation of La Langue Francaise. It certainly was wonderful. In class activities Chap has always been prominent, serving us as Athletic Representative for two years with much credit to himself, besides being a member of several committees. It is only through a series of misfortunes, both physical and academic, that he has been deprived of athletic honors both in football and crew, finally retiring to the less dangerous pastimes and Mexican sports, and becoming a light of the H. C. Club. Chap is a sailor from truck to keelson, of the type that made the Constitution famous.

NE thing we have to hand "Ham" the dog for-he has the finest set of uniforms in the Academy, bar none. Why, he bought two new ones, brand new, Plebe Yearg to say nothing of a couple he has picked up since then from bilgers-and around the corridors. "Yep, Ham, old boy, we hand you the silver platter when it comes to togs." The first thing any of us remember of Ham is seeing a little runt racing around the track after Bill Thompson during Plebe Summer, looking like a pilot Fish with a long, lean shark. Since then he has forsaken the track for baseballg and Plebe Year he grabbed down his "N" right off the bat. He claims it is great sport to make the trip to West Point. "The Hops up there are mighty fine," says "Hammy." "Ham" likes his parties, and is always game for one. He lived in New York for sometime, which is liable to help a man out when it comes to such things. He is strong for all the ladies, the only restriction being that they cannot be tall. When it comes to the Academic stuff, "Ham" doesn't shine. He is generally un- sat., which is no distinction, but contrives to weather each river, which is a distinction. If he manages to persuade the saw- bones that he can hear all that is necessary, he will still be with us. As a whole, "Ham" doesn't have a lot to say, which is rather a relief after listening to one of these endurance-test filibusters of ours. He has the courage of his convictions, a thing that a man surely needs in this outfit. We have strong suspicions that he was a leader of the old Sixth Company ear-biting gang, which precipitated a few gorgeous skirmishes between Battalions, Youngster Year. Ham also goes in for records, and has one which many of us fought for, and many fell overboard reaching for-that of most sea-duty without sea-pay. He claims to know exactly how many rivets there are in the "Reina," and all other particularsg having had such a long cruise on her.

This cherubic roughneck became a pampered pet after a strenuous but bril- liant career at Penn Prep, where he was a star scholar. He is a quiet, unassuming chap whose modesty has hitherto prevented his prominence in the social woild. Fat is very reticent: you would never accuse him of ability to tickle a tune from a mandolin or harmonize unless you knew him well. Dignity is his middle name-he has served as Nellie's balance wheel for the past three years and is the only one who sufficiently understands the nature of the beast to get him through a door without striking twice. Porky is an enthu- siastic exponent of the New Navigation and is the discoverer of more than one time-saving formula and short cut. A gymnast of great stick-to-it-iveness, he is sure to be a wearer of a GNT before the season is over-only an accident prevented his winning the letter last year. When Fat puts on his tights and begins twirling the clubs, the other contestants have less attention paid them than a brick in a collection of queens. And isn't he just too cunning for anything! Fat went on Youngster Cruise a child and returned a many all he needed was a chance to show them he knew how. He was a most con- scientious worker. Compared to the rest of us, Fat proved fruit of easy picking for the dagoes. He contends, however, that neither he nor Jenks lost anything in their dealings with the pirates at Gib. Fat passed through the final stage of adolescence Second Class Year: when he returned from the hospital the former adornment of his table vanished, and with it Fat's optimism. Hobie had ragged Nellie for unauthorized article on table, but we have a hunch that wasn't the reason for its disappearance. All we can get out of Porky is: "Fussin' certainly does ruin a man's disposition." If you want good candy, go to Fat-and he'll give you skags and his lastsilk sock.

ELLES slid into the Naval Academy as easily as many of us slide out of it. It was merely an incident in the natural course of events for him, and he entered with a thorough knowledge of the ins and outs, to acquire which meant time and painful experience to those of us who were not Navy juniors. This smoothed for him many of the obstacles which beset the path of the average newly-hatched pet. Following in the line of its inception, his whole career here has been of a nature which one could hardly characterize as stormy. Calmly and gracefully, he has undulated through the four years, a thing of beauty and a joy forever. ' Nelles is naturally rather quiet, but he has some pretty good ideas on nearly everything. The fact that he is not in the habit of airing them for the edification of all hands is a refreshing quality. That the members of this gang are backward about expressing their ideas is the last bit of slander one would think of uttering against them. Gates, we salute you-the exception that proves the rule! . Pray don't gather from the foregoing that our Nellie is mute- perish the thought! His idea of humor is a fearful and wonderful thing, and the repartee that ripples from his lips engulfs his audi- ence in its depths. In this particular line he is unsurpassed. Verily, no joke needeth further comment than this'-that a man say, "That is worthy of Nellie Gates." 1 l Nellie loves to tinker and you will usually find him in his E, room seated in the midst of a scattered array of component parts of something or the other, trying to put them together again.

' OOK 'er here, do you know one thing?" This in a loud, raucous voice is the invariable preamble to one of Fech's indictments of some institution that he has detected in error. He keeps an eagle eye upon the affairs of the whole world and his criticism is uniformly sharp whether it touches the proceedings of Congress or a decision of a New York night court. No matter what the subject, however, when the harangue has ended and quiet is restored, you know not only one thing but several. Fech does not talk for the music of it, and his ideas are always keen and highly original. Fech is a savoir. He has not hidden his light under a bushel, he has applied his talents more earnestly to helping others than to fattening his own averages. Plebe Year he nursed Isaiah Parker through many painful teethings, and now that he has developed into a consistent three-O man, Billy looks upon him with all the pride of a father. Fech is an excellent sea-going many his knowledge of the Navy is thorough, extending from the tonnage of dreadnoughts to interesting personal details. The practice cruises have been parties for Fech, he enjoyed every minute of them. He has developed a very salty manner and his speech is well charged with sea-going phrases. It is very interesting to observe Billy handling a company, a squad, or even a delinquent Plebe. His methods are those of a Prus- sian Major, and his bearing makes it plain that he has his victims in the hollow of his hand. He produces quick and excellent results, however, and those who come under his command like him and respect him. Billy is unusual in that he is a very good practical man as well as a savoir. He is not among the class aviators, nor is he a clock- work investigator, hut he learns things in an engine room and he can make things work. , Fech has been a strong favorite in the First Battalion-among the men he has lived with-because he has always been unselfish, straight- forward and independent. 152 Zlsaiab Barker W A Shelbyville, Tennessee ' Hlkeil llIksH HID lilkkieli ig Buzzard. ONSERVATION of energy? We heard of it as a theory: we know it now as a fact. For we have with us a living demonstration of its proof, the gentleman from Tennessee, Ikkie. Yes, he has the record-four years at the Naval Academy and the least number of ergs expended. He never saw salt water before he blew into Crabtown, but already hc has a deep-sea attribute, the rotund figure of an admiral. Plebe Year he held the honor job in the Register, but after that he lost ground steadily, until he finished up with a motley crew between him and the coveted goal. Ikkie made only two cruises, but it is just as well that he missed the third. After his "researches in Cadiz," the "Adventure of the Three Jolly Romans," the "Attempts to Beat the London Fogs," and such events we wonder what would have happened on the Pacific Coast. Ike has only had one argument with the Discipline Department-his devotion to the afore- mentioned principle probably stopped any more-Lady Fatima. He was a prominent member of Fomgany A, and knows what the Naval Academy can be made when letter of the Blue Book is en orce . The ladies-Ikkie worships them all, but generally from afar. Only a favored few know the sparkling wit of the Tennessee Wonder. It may be that a little incident in connection with the Masqueraders made him shy in this locality, because we hear wild tales of his adventures in company with Stony and Lita in Nashville. We also heard of a charming episode on the train returning from leave. Besides having the corporosity of a true sea-dog, Ikkie has distinguished himself as one of Lawson's Diving Venuses, where he attended rehearsals for four years, but this is the limit of his athletic prowess. He belonged to all the better clubs, the Cosmopolitan, the Radiator, the Canadian, the Nicotine, and has been nominated for the Order of the Red Cross of Burgundy, a great and most exclusive honor. Ikkie threatens to go to the Asiatic, but we won't believe it until he leaves-the trip is too long for this son of Mor- pheus, and incidentally, he has his eye on the job of the Naval Attache at Paris. Well, Ikkie, your program of life will doubtless give you a long one-may you enjoy it, and may we be along to help you. 153 Mliilhur william Jfeineman St. Louis, Missouri , HR0sieU ClHappyU Rifle Team C4, 3, 2, IJ, RN'1'g Masqueraders C413 Mandolin Club.

Plebe Year Rosie and Heinie Mullinnix started in to develop each other's physiques, and instead of following the peaceful pur- suits of unraveling Pop Brown's "perfectly evident" math book, they devoted the evening study hour to rough-housing, mostly to the annoyance of the duty squads. Heinie made the football squad a little later, so their efforts were rewarded. K Well, Rosie, if that determination stays with you throughout your stay in the Navy as it has while here at the U. S.

SLIGHT paraphrasing of the maxim of the exponents of the strenuous life to make it read "When he works, he works hardg and when he plays, he works .hard," sums up Henr 's attitude toward Academy life.

So violent were the upheavals Youngster Year, that the whole corridor expected to see "Dot German Boy" come flying through the door, but Heinie has learned to take such riots philosophically and he now devotes his endeavors to taking a paternal interest in Rosie's welfare. His quiet reserve has prevented his making many close friends, but those who know him beyond the mere acquaintanceship stage have found him a man, and one well worthy to be held a friend. Five stripes adorn his sleeve because he rates them, and he has handled the duties of Senior Nlidshipman Officer in a manner that has fully justified the confidence the authorities placed in him, and which has opened the eyes of many of his classmates to his true worth. Wherever Henry goes in the Service, his ship will be the gainer by one efficient, reliable officer. 155 lean Swangster Jfiske Whitinsville, Massachusetts "Fiskey" "Conk" "Madame" One Stripeg Soccer Numerals. HERE may be as many good fish in the sea as ever came out of it, in spite of all that there is but one Conk. A quiet, all-pervading calm and peace reign over this man. He receives you with irreproachable courtesy-then, if you have nothing in particular to say, forgets your presence entirely, and resumes his brooding over the "most impene- trable mystery that ever baffled the human intelligence," to wit: Why is a mouse when it spins? Throughout Youngster Year Fiske was openly inquisitive as to the deep meaning in the answer, "The Higher the Fewer," but now he never breaches the subject, unless in a very confi- dential mood. When first the Madame ambled into this continual round of pleasure and enjoyment he was the original Maine Blue Noser. He had, however, some of the essential characteristics of the genus homo C?D habitating his present home. Chief of these was the letter "a," mislaid, appar- ently, under a steam roller in the days of his youth. This peculiarity cropped out the day we played the "Maryland Awggies." Fiske has few bad habits, among which may be numbered chess and an annual subscrip- tion to "Popular Mechanics." When this latter arrives, he lays aside his knitting, knocks off Slaying chess with Nemo, reads it from cover to cover, and sends for all the toys described. ractically, he is as savvy as they come. Although it may take him ten minutes to get out an observation on the weather, the chances are that he won't use more than five in understanding, thoroughly, a whole lesson in "Elastic . ,,,V 5 A V ' ' Strength," which is more than even "Pussy" expects. , ' Leon is the most naturally polite gentleman we have ever had the good fortune to become acquainted with. Although not expressed in an abundance of ease and sociability, never- theless, honest good will arises from him like negative B.T. U.'s from a Bancroft Hall radiator, and it doesn't "clink-clink" in that "while there's life there's hope" manner employed by our steam friend-it's frank. As honest and as clean minded as a Juice exam is long, Fiske impresses you as being the original NaCl found on earth. And what's more, he is. 156 Cllihtnarlr au! Sauer Council Bluffs, Iowa ushortyn uBar0nn Buzzard. HE Baron is strictly unneutral. This causes frequent discussions which he always ends by, "That is all there is to it." Very decided old man is our Baron, full of propositions, and with more naval statistics at his finger ends than the man who put beans in the Navy. You can't catch the Baron-you can't-no indeedy. His dignity is unsurpassed and it wavers not under even the heaviest pressure. In fact his bearing approaches pomposity. This is a rare quality in one of the Pampered Pets, far be it from us to disparage such a good attribute, it should be encouraged. However, Shorty's chi f aim in life is to train othersg he broke the Gloom of- his one bad habit and came as near sup- e pressing the Chink as was consistent with his aforementioned dignity. Being of no very great dimensions himself, his tendency is to apply diminutives to all things, and this causes his frequent references to a "little girl" of whom we know nothing further, but we conjecture that from the number of times he has stunted her growth, she must be a veritable "Lilly P t' ." Th B ron never blossomed out at the hops with more than commendable regularity u ian e a l f S cond Class Year Now, however, he saunters over with a pro- prior to the ast part o e - prietary air, and they do not start the music until he arrives. In spite of this, no miniatures have been ordered so far as we know, although we have reasonable grounds for suspicion. Shorty is a firm believer in rates, and woe to a man whose violation of a sacred privilege , , , I in 1 comes to his notice. What is more, he applies the rule both P ' ll u ' ways and is conscientious to a degree which calls for admira- H H tion. Because he doesn't mingle too freely in the juvenile pastimes of the Academy is no sign that he isn't human, and once you get to know him he develops the most remark- able streaks of humor imaginable, and a keen appreciation of the many fallacious ideas at all times prevalent in a body of young men. The Baron will make one of the ofiicers that count and will always maintain his splendid perspective of right and wrong. 157 william Zahn Jfnrrestel Buffalo, New York I uBinn Buzzard: Football Numeralsg Baseball Nu- merals. ERE you on the West Coast during the summer of 1915? Did you see Bill head his band? lt was one of the chief attractions whenever we had a parade. Once he for- got to wait for the rest of us, and took his band down the street a couple of blocks, amidst the applause of the crowds, before he ever missed us. Hobey himself admitted that "Meester For-res-tel" was "ve-ry good" as a bandmaster. The best part of it is that Bill is "ve-ry good" at whatever he turns his hand to. You'll go a long way before you find a better man for all-around efficiency. Besides all that, he's as good a shipmate and companion as you'll ever run across. He can take more kidding, with a smile, than any other three men we know, Ubarrin' any," as the Professor said. Bill comes from up-state New York, and, to judge by him, it must be a mighty good place. He doesn't fuss a great deal. It's a shame, too, because he has a fine "line," and gets along beautifully with the fair sex-they all fall for him. When he does "break out," though, you can always depend upon his A-2 A girl to "pull up the average" of the hop. Bill wears his binoculars quite steadily, but Sam Peck wore higher-powered ones more steadily, and is still in the Navy, so we hope that Bill will get through all right.

He played a mighty good h Cl F b ll Team and worked during the winters with the gloves with Bill Forres- back on t e ass oot a 1 tel. He would certainly have more to show for his labor were it not for his uncanny regularity of h h Ev n when he was asleep he got getting hurt.

He doesn't seem to mind a little bit, no matter is ace maue up y p what it is, so long as he can eat his three squares a day and smoke a bull skag after each one. We have a hunch that Stony would have liked very much to blossom forth into a full-grown oolong hound during First Class Year. But every time he started in that direc- tion, some one of the Order of the Red Cross of Burgundy yanked him back, and gave him the haw-haw. And Christmas leave you should have seen him! Street has lots of sand and good stuff in him. He threatens to go to the Asiatic as soon as he graduates, but we have heard that from many others before, and we have got to see his orders first.

NTIL he laughs one might think him sedate and melancholy. But once having seen his eyes become mere slits and his entire body shake with merriment the impression is dispelled once and for all time. The Dog loves a joke above all things, unless it be to tell one. At that art Hound is at his best. We have learned that his stories are usually of the kind that lose nothing in narration. The slow drawl lingers until the very end while Scotchman, his thoughts two laps ahead of his words, chuckles to himself as he thinks of the treat in store for the audience. And the windup is always a good one. Athletics other than Mexican, unless it be golf, have never been an incentive to sustained effort. In the gentle and constant pursuit of My Lady Nicotine, he did record track work in eluding Jimmy Legs and vigilant O. C.'s Only one strategic error caused him regret-Youngster Year Roger and Hound thought of the same place at the same time. He has been on the ragged edge once or twice only because, being too conscientious, he failed to bluff when others did so with success. But dangers of that sort with him have been infrequent - and of short duration. The Dog never growls, never barks, and never bites. His con- sideration for others and quiet good nature go far to win the respect of all and make him one of the most universally popular men in the Class. On whatever ship he may be, every man will find Fraser a gentleman, a conscientious and sincere oflicer, and a con- ' genial messmate. f "Oh, Awchie, ah you coming ashore alone, or ah you coming 'i ashore in a pawty?" 160 william walter btbutt Leavenworth, Kansas HBiuyH Uwinn One Stripe: Keeper of the Bullg Keeper of the GNT?

Ted had to quit prepping and answer the call of the greatest American game Cbaseballj-then he fooled us all and passed. On July 12th he and Mick started life anew together. After a few weeks of pronubial bliss, the authorities suggested the separation of the pair. Ted bilged Pal and tried to bilge himself, but fortune smiled-or frowned and E. C. still wears the dear old uniform-yes, the same one. Teddie is a good scout, in spite of the fact that he is a "Junior," and the greatness of his heart is shown by his toleration of the Crew which hung around his home. They over-ran his house, so that an honest man could find seclusion nowhere. Reticence is one of Edward's salient qualities, and it all seems due to lack of inspiration. Turn him loose outside in shallow waters and the Colonel's boy is at once the soul of Oriental repartee and sparkling wit. The Cafe Regina and the clubs of London have all heard his scintillating conversation and marveled that the man should have so many farads. Ted should have been in the Old Navy. His trend is toward the old regime, and he is lost in these arid surroundings-the South had no harder time after the Emancipation than Teddy does trying to treat scurvy Plebes as equals-Plebes are bad enough but pale-faced "cits" are the abomination of his life.

Pl b Year this young mirth-maker was not very savvy and nearly founclered, but e e he pulled up and was never in shoal water again until Second Class Year, when he got into dith- k h d h h 1,- culties with the Juice Department.

He advanced rapidly along the fussing line after that, and Second Class June Week he even dragged a seminary of his own. Then with the coming First Class Year, he went J so far as to aspire to the Four Hundred. Billiken is a good athlete and would have made good long ago, but for a slight lazy streak in him.

The tin ear Sammy carries around with him is the result of hard work on the mat-work that should have been rewarded with a wNt, for Sam knows a few things about the yappling game, which, backed up by some pretty good muscles, makes him a tough proposition for any light- weight.

HEESEH sprang into our midst from the wilds of old Fort Wayne and gained almost instant prominence by the exercise of that "hot line" for which he is so justly famous. Never wholly subdued, on the slightest provocation he bursts forth with four bells and a jingle to become the life of the party. The ladies-Lord bless them-they all love him, his sweethearts and wives, may they never meet, but if they do it will be only to fight for his favor. Always just falling in or out of love, thus far he has emerged safely with heart little the worse from wear. Save for class baseball and Mexican athletics, his endeavors as an athlete have mainly con- sisted in sprints in to formation from Murray Hill, his best time fully equalling the Academy Record. His escapades on the West Coast are a matter of history, but even now we are reminded of them by the Assistant's load of 'Frisco mail. Much might be said of the good resulting from Beejay's watchful eye on his philanderings: without his censorship our comrade might well be behind the bars. His greatest ambition is to beat his own record established at Nloore's-eleven sundaes, thirty-one cakes, seven cheese sandwiches and two pounds of Brownley's Best. A caulking mat is his constant companion and he yearns for the time when he may return to Crabtown as commandant, to make reveille at ten-thirty instead of the present unholy hour. The won- derful carrying power of his voice has been demonstrated on occasions when he has been subjected to attentions of a gang bent on celebrating his birthday-his efforts on this occasion being sufficient to arouse the entire second deck. He has a well-concealed goat, however, which trots out only on rare occasions. To say old Cheese is a friend in need may sound trite, but never was it more truthfully applied, he never parades his virtues in this respect, but his downright goodwill never fails a pal when it is needed. A natural savoir, a non-greaser, a keen fusser, but best of all a friend. 166 A Bertram Zfnsepb Buhgers I Knoxville, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania A Une Stripeg Baseball Team Q4, 3, 2, Up Baseball N9 Captain Baseball Teamg Hop Committee CID. NCE upon a time amidst the smoky hills of Pittsburgh, our Bertram decided on the Navy as a career and the Academy as the scene of his initial efforts. We welcomed him to our happy circle and ever since have increased our liking for his personality, our admiration for his ability, and our respect for his sterling qualities. As an athlete he stands with the bestg four years on the Varsity baseball team has brought him the captaincy in his last year. A veteran of three Army games, his greatest ambition is to beat the Graylegs on the diamond, and with the confidence and trust of the whole Brigade in back of him, we'll hear that old bell echo from Bancroft Hall to Worden Field once more before we leave. The Smoke Hall gang rarely succeeds in parading his angora, not even with the far-famed potency of a "Rodgers' evening," but when he does cut loose-keep clear and stand by to repel boarders. The ladies with one accord proclaim him a dear and a love, and with the chaperons his grease is exceptionally prominent. A quiet and discriminating fusser, yet he disclaims most of the artilices of a lover and has been known to hold forth at great length on the folly of extravagant love-making. How- ever, it has been noticed that on occasions, his actions have belied his words. He is savvy without the help of grease and ably seconds it with a practical eihciency which gains him favor with the powers-that-be, notwithstanding that his one stripe fails to give him the proper scope for his ability. Bert has principles and we admire him for the unassuming way for which he stands up for them and for the firmness he shows in living them also. A man of absolute trustworthiness, he shines moreover by his good-hearted likeableness, his willingness to move heaven and earth for a friend, and his lovable good nature. They don't make 'em any better than Bert Rodgers. 167 Ziaerhert Eiuhn Grassie ' Cohasset, Massachusetts A ,i "Count" "Grass" Buzzard: Baseball Numerals. HAT'DYE get in steam? 2.494! Well I'll bel!" As Chief Sachem and best all- around medicine man of the Boston Bean Tribe, we fully expected to see a star adorn his collar: but Isherwood Hall has been for lo these many years, a scene of many a spirited though unrewarded chase after the elusive 2.5 by this valiant chalk eater. A free, easy-going, fun seeker, he never tires of leaving an audience in midair groping for the point of one of his strictly original jokes. The Count was a member of Company A First Class Summer and though violent disciplinary storms were encountered he happily weathered them all. For three years he was the pride of the red mike association, but his insatiable thirst for punch finally led to his downfall. Baseball is one of his strongest points and the old home teams can never sink low enough to eclipse his view of the pennant. His efforts along that line have won him his numerals. Blessed with a clear conscience he sleeps well, as is shown by the fact that in four years he has never heard reveille, but it is wonderful how the clank of an inoffensive sword can banish all desire for that last "forty winks." A strong devotion to Fatimas, Youngster Year, led him on many a search for knowledge behind the book cases in Recrea- tion Hall. Since an unfortunate encounter with the Duty Officer he has been thoroughly convinced that peaceful pursuits of Shakcspeare's ideals can best be carried out in the library. He knows how to work when the necessity arrives, nor is he afraid of it. There's always a cheery smile and a boost in the right direction for those to whom things do not appear so brightly, and we know that such qualities will win for him a host of friends in the Service, as they have here. 168 Fan iiauhert iikagshale Toccoa, Georgia HRagSH Buzzard. AN HUBERT' RAGSDALE, of Toccoa, Georgia, known officially to his classmates as Rags, is a typical specimen of the Georgia Peach. He is savvy, witty, good-looking Cfor proof, see abovej, a heavy fusser, and a genial companion. 4 Rags entered the Navy after an unsuccessful attempt the year before. How he came to fail we have never been able to discover, for he has never since had to worry about a 2.5. In fact, his marks are always safely above it and, for that matter, they could be much higher, if he would only cease entertaining his friends with his numerous, so-called, "funny" stories during the evening study periods. If his stories are not funny, they are always good. His one trouble is that just when you are expecting a real good one, he launches into a yarn about his experiences in Dear Old Georgia. His love of the South is not to be forgotten, for it has a living advertisement in his roommate. Rags has changed the Count's smart Bostonian air to a dignified and stately Southern attitude. , , Rags has never ranked very high as an athlete, for, although for " ' " three years a member of the fextraj swimming squad, and for the past year a member of the golf squad, his development has been along other lines. His charming manner, his ready wit, and his ability to entertain have caused great changes in the hearts of many of his feminine friends. Many have left Annapolis raving about "Ragsy Dear," and one young lady even addressed him as her "wonder boy." As yet his love has ,settled on no special lady, but when it does, we will all join in congratulating her. We know that in going out into the Service, Rags will uphold its best traditions, and in after years--as now- it will be a pleasure for us to say that he is one of our most loyal friends and that we are proud to have him with us. 169 U O Zbumer Zietnis Erussknpf Minneapolis, Minnesota ' HPOPH ClH0mer7, flcubalil One Stripeg Class Football K4, 3, 2, ID: Football Numeralsp Masqueraders C4, 3, 2, ID, Manager Masqueraders CID, Choir C4, 3, 2, IJ. that is Mr. Grosskopfl No, Pop, you needn't take off your hat, we know you." Homer is the patriarch of the class, the man of mysterious age. Though his top elevation may proclaim him the possessor of many years, his boyish countenance refutes the story that his eldest son was too old to enter the Academy. A connoisseur of hair tonics-he knows them all, has tried them all, and is the living contradiction of their advertised fame. For years he has fought a losing fight, a fight waged with the determination "to have and to hold." However, what he lacks in the tonsorial world, he more than makes up for in the musical. As a soloist he is the invaluable standby of the Choir, the Glee Club, and the Masqueraders. He has been intimately connected with the latter organization throughout the entire course, both as an' actor and as its manager. His voice has won fame for him in the Naval Academy circles, while on the cruises he is in constant demand by both officers and midshipmen. Cubal's athletic activities have been confined to the class football team -not through lack of energy or effort, but through the general handicap of his lack of weight and size. He has been one of our strongest half-backs, and it was no uncommon sight to see the sunrise in the midst of a pile-up. Dad is a man of moods. One moment finds him living up to the boyish countenance-carefreeg another, and his thoughts are in accord with his lack of curls-serious, and earnestly considering the whys and wherefores of matrimony. Though not given to playing to the grandstand, you can always tell by the manner in which he sings his solos if she is at Chapel. He is always a good fellow, a pleasant companion, and, best of all, a firm and steady friend.

Those of us who saw him take charge of the Navy team on Franklin Field in Nineteen-Fourteen, and fight the Army team for every inch of ground, and who saw him carried from the Polo Grounds! after a plucky effort to stem the tide of defeat in Nineteen-Fifteen, can best realize and appreciate the stern make-up of this man. 'As captain of the football team his work, though handicapped by frequent and severe injuries, was in no small part responsible for the splendid fight put up by the men in Blue. Quiet, well-poised,Turo is not an assuming character in behavior or appearance. He was a charter member of the "Plebe Quartet" and is always ready to lend his "Tremblo-basso" to har- mony of any kind. He is a good fellow to make a liberty with, for he can always have a good time and yet live up to his obligations as President of the Y. Nl. C. A. His is a steady and far-seeing mind, and his services have always been sought in matters pertaining to Class affairs and in general committee work. Whatever he has done, his influence has always been for the best. He has steadily maintained the existence of a "girl back home," but after watching his social exploits for three years, we are beginning to feel somewhat skeptical. A star decorated his collar as a Youngster, the product of his Plebe Year scholastic achievements. For a time he dropped back into the ranks of the "Ordinary Men," until First Class Year, when three well-earned stripes once more raised him to the pinnacle of the savvy. "I must have a dance with Mr. Miles, why-he's my brother!" 171 Cuiarrull william Ziaamill l Temple, Texas HTeX97 UCOWH One Stripe. E "toileth not-neither does he spin"-yet, not even Solomon himself lolled in such a languor of ease. ' "Weary Willie" or "Panhandle Pete" had very little, if anything, on Cow. Not that he is actually lazy, Heavens nol-he just isn't energetically inclined. He'd work-if he had to, but he'd rather not. . In athletics he has never indulged, not even in those of the Mexican variety. He is a member of neither the Radiator or the Cosmopolitan Clubs. Then, you ask, what does he do? That, kind reader, must be classed with the Legend of the Sphinx. We know not-but we suspect-and "Nlovies." He has yet to make his debut into society--that is, Naval Academy society-he's well known in certain other circles and circuits. Cow is one of the few, very few, who can boast that he has never been seen on the floor at a hop. Yes, he's human! The "Jake"-"Dad"-"Cow" combination is a worthy one, and a hard one to break. If they are not at the movies, look for the chess-boards in Smoke Hall, if they are not there--they're sick. At other times Cow may be found in his room diplomatically entertaining such persons as desire an interview with the Editor of "The Log"-for reasons, literary, pecuniary, or pugilistic. If you see him running homeless around the corridor-with C t a good-natured smile upon his countenance-you may know that he has been run out of his room-to make way for ' matters of state. Because of his reputation of adhering to the paths of least resistance, the Regimental Gossips were set agog when it was learned that Cow had completely corrected Holcombe's "Navy Regulations." They found the cause in that which we all recognize as Hamill's character-a generous heart, a willing helper, and the firmest of friends. 172 Benjamin Bnpall ilaolcnmhe Staten Island, New York uBenv uldoveyn u-Titneyn Regimental Adjutantg Football Squad Q4, 3, IJ, Football Numerals, Crew Numerals C4, 25, Crew Squad Q4, 3, 2, U5 Class President CID, Log Stal?

ENNY's versatility is amply witnessed by the above array of achievements, and a closer inspection will reveal the fact that all his honors have been of the variety that required hard work. Ben likes to sit down and chew the fat, tinkling a mandolin the while, but sgive him a job, and he'll give it all he has. Every fall has found him Fighting for a place on the Varsity, and making the man who won the place prove that he rated it. A bit light, as crew men go, he has worked each year for a seat in the Varsity boat, and during the unsettled days of the past Crew season, "Holcombe's crew" was one of the leading contenders for the title.of the Varsity. That numerals rather than an N appear on Benny's sweater is due in part to his lack of weight, but principally to the fate that has laid him in the hospital for a part of every athletic season. Only those who have worked with Ben in some of his activities really know him. He may appear to groan under his work, but the Farewell Ball demonstrated that he has the stuff that counts. When most others would have allowed "The Log" to lapse into unconsciousness, Benny kept at it-writing it himself when no one would aid-and for the good name of the Class has not only kept alive the paper started by I9I4, but has done his level best to make it a product worthy of the Naval Academy. The anonymous character of all articles in the "Lucky Bag" prevents Ben's receiving his due in its pages, but he has more than once earned the "Chief's" gratitude for work of real merit. With the Class Committee at his side, Holcombe has piloted the good ship 1916 through the channels of First Class Year, striving all the time for the good of the Class and of the Academy. C f On first meeting Holcombe you would hardly spot him as a man who has done so much for the Class and the Academy, for Ben reserves his heraldic powers for publishing the orders. With the fellows he is a congenial companion--always ready to add his bass to any harmony, to appreciate a joke, or to take any amount of chafllng. With the ladies-suflice it to say that Lovey alone of all 1916 had the entree last year. A man who has always stood Hrmly for what he saw to be the right, Holcombe will carry to the Service the qual- ities which make up our aim-an omcer and a gentleman. JT!!

His activities, however, have not been confined to books. A man of versatility, he has served his Class well in many capacities, and results indicate clearly that he is a staunch upholder of the policy that what is worth doing at all is worth doing well. A striking example of this may be seen in his work on the gymnasium team, where he has reached the foremost place in horizontal bar work by hard and conscientious effort. Obie has also played his part in the Mutt and Jeff comedy of "Roommates" with the Yonker for four years, which combination has been a rare source of mirth and joviality. His personality is one that has drawn many friends to him, and a few minutes with Slats at any time always leaves you the better for having had it.

He has been so much a part of the hops that he was once portrayed on a hop card. His career in the Naval Academy has been one of thrills and excitement, and several of his adventures are already world famous. In Paris there was the storming of the Moulin Rougeg in 'Frisco he gave a realistic imitation of Jack the Giant Killer, while his appearance as "Luna, the Beautiful Diving Horse," is already history.

' The "Yonker," as he is affectionately called by his friend Schott, can give a handicap to most of our Mexican athletes, and then win with blankets on. Fearful and wonderful are the tales of this Ancient Mariner, but if you want to make him happy, pretend to believe them. Probably the most popular man in our Class, he never seemed to know it, and is as good a man as we have. He will make a true ship- mate, and a truer friend.

Bill forsook the commercial world to devote his time to intellectual research while sailing the high seas. Could his interest in the classics, and the time he has devoted to them, have been directed into the channels of Juice and Steam we should now probably find on the market electrical and mechanical contrivances that have never been dreamed of. As an orator he is without a peer among usg after his first few opening remarks in a discussion, we forget to speak of oats and listen with expectancy for what is to follow. A member of the English Department, after one of Willie's masterpieces, stated that the address was the best he had ever heard, which remark, you will admit, is among those that are few and far between.

He won his numerals in lacrosse, and was up among those who are now representing the Academy in this branch of athletics, until he turned his attentions to less strenuous pastimes. Bill has a most happy faculty of attending strictly to his own business, and while not essentially a mixer his friends are many and find in him frank sincerity and loyalty that makes friendship worth while.

The above is a sample of the conversation among the clite at Carvel Hall when Joe drops out for five o'clock tea. He came to us fresh from the classic portals of his Alma Mater with a savoir faire and a How of rhetoric which could not be resisted. He is the original conversationalist, and has all the Mexican athletes, past or present, future or futurist, gasping for breath. His silver tongue converts ham sandwiches into wedding cakes, nickels to dollars, and I.0s to 3.555 the really beautiful part of it is that he is interesting and you like to listen.

His voice is sweet, not alone in conversation, but in song, and he has been a star member of the Glee Club since its organization. On some moonlight night in the tropics, sitting on the deck, a skag in his face, with a few of his cohorts about him, he will break into harmony that will hold the crowd until long past "Pipe down." Joe is a good fellow, first, last, and all the time, the heart of any party, and the life of any crowd. At fussing he is a marvel, a pastmaster of its niceties, and an adept in its mysteries. He is intensely fond of two branches of athletics- Swedish gymnastics and swimming. Of late he has grown a trifle wearied of the former, but has never lost his zest for aquatics, and never misses his Monday plunge in the tank. Between times he devoted his energies toward securing for us our class ring.

The subject of this brief mention breezed in one bright clay, bringing with him all the romantic glamour of a character in "Adventure," or an Indian killer in the movies. They did their best to civilize him at Bobby's, persuading him to lay aside his flannel shirt, six-shooter, spurs and boots, but he immediately procured a checkered suit, some tan shoes and a sombrero, and wanted 'to start a faro lay-out.

Right here Alkaline struck acid- as most of us did in some way or another-for his feet, which automatically feather themselves to a perfect ninety degrees, interfered somewhat with his military appearance. It is said that Alki can do more tricks with his feet than a bos'n's mate can do with a rope yarn. Plebe Year had no terrors for Alki, as none of them have had-he could read a Cosmo as carelessly as if he were only prevented from starring by "D's," when in reality he was only on the topmost branches. There was one study to which Alki took as greedily as if it were fried chicken Cof which he is passionately fondj and that was Dago. A recitation always took him back to the hot, sun-baked street in Socorro and his imagination would run riot. You should hear him sing "La Paloma" and accompany himself on the cornet. Oh! yes, he has musical tendencies too.

His strong point is Mathematics, and there are few who are his superior in juggling logs. His class standing, however, has been somewhat affected by demerits. In his youth he was led astray by his second roommate, the Count, and as a consequence spent considerable time on the Reina. Since then he appears to have walked the straight and narrow path, or perhaps he has been properly guarded by the angels. His latest roommate is Sandy, whom he has almost bilged by his absolute refusal to study. Jack started out Youngster Year as a fusser, but he has since confined his attentions to a select few, favoritism being shown to Hackensack.

He has such marvelously blue and wonderfully fascinating eyes: and he does blush very prettily-- but he does not 'always wait for such remarks as this to call forth his ready blush. I It mounts to his brow at the slightest provocation, and quite often with no provoca- tion at al. ' Russell has impressed us as being shy in the presence of ladies, perhaps this accounts largely for his hitherto unwavering stand as a Red Mike-unwavering no more, however-for he has expressed the determination to make his debut at the German. We all await the event with bated breathg she must be the girl all of us have dreamed of, if she can upset four years of a man's life in such a manner. When Tums was a Youngster, a fair young thing who had gone to High School with him, wrote him that she was coming to Annapolis for a few days' visit, and hoped she knew him well enough to ask him to escort her to a hop--Russell never finished that letter. He dropped it like a red-hot coal, and before it hit the deck he was halfway to his adjutant's room, where he had himself put on duty the night of the hop in question. Fate resented this interference, and as a result, all First Class Year Tums has had to take care of duty details, and puzzle his brain try- ing to suit the convenience of the fussers and the wooden men. He is a horse for exercise, and almost any afternoon will find him in the gym. Wrestling claimed him for a while, but his conscience forced him to desist because of the scanty apparel in which he had to appear. He always studies in full uniform, and pulls down the shades every time the Shrimp makes himself comfortable in a bathrobe. In all subjects but Dago he is an unmitigated savoir, and although his class standing won't get him a wife and the Construction Corps, he is certain of being given his first choice of station.

HEN this shrimp took the entrance exams., they used the method of second differences of the scales to make him heavy enough to passp but since then he has grown somewhat under careful nourishment--witness our board bill. During Plebe Year he went out for that seeming small man's graft-crew coxswain. He cussed our Plebe crew up and down the river for a couple of months, gaining thereby a voice and vocabulary worthy of the n'th mate of a bum-boat, a tanned hide, and numerals. At the last minute, however, the Plebe's trip to Philly for the Henley was called off, and the season ended in sore disappointment. Since then the Crum has been Ie guide in a number of tours to the head waters of the Severn, under the auspices of Doc Cook Marston, and Holcombe of jitney fame. Since Plebe Year his weight has kept him out of the Varsity boat, but Dick has always been thankful for his services in teaching the new Plebes the difference between an oar and a crab net. He has roomed with Tums Hitchcock in almost perfect harmony, with the usual occasional bickerings.

He does not confine his fluency of speech to the ladies, however, and his abilityito imitate various and sundry char- acters about this institution has been the source of much amusement for those who have inhabited at different times the forecastle, spew alley, and the after veranda. Chief among his favorites are none other than El Senor Fernandez and our old friend Deac Saunders, to say nothing of Stags. On those subjects he can out-lie anybody but Bill Thompson, and he can even fail to do that and still be pretty good. The thing he has had to strive hardest for, 2.5, has kept him out of athletics for the better part of his sojourn- with the pampered pets, but of late he has developed a punch worthy of note, and when the boxing tournaments come around, the captain of the squad will be expected to show us a good brand of the old fighting game. While speaking of the accomplishments of this youth, we should not overlook the fact that he was the head drummer in the Chorus of Hell Cats. Likewise is he a frequent hop-goer, and not infrequently may be seen skimming over the floor looking love and kisses into the eyes of his femme. Ah there, lady, look out for this fellow--he has a couple in every port, and even a few in Pontotoc.

OHN is primarily Captain of the Tennis Team, a position which his skill with the racquet has well earned him and one which well befits a personage of his social abilities. Not alone in tennis has John proved his worth as an athlete, for few are the squads that john has not at some time been a member of, in his quest of activity. His ambition in that direction led him to join the Hustlers First Class Year, and to them, as to every other aggregation he has graced, John gave his best. But when it comes to tennis, John is in his ele- ment. Even that is not his strongest point-john is a snake, a habitue of drawing-rooms, whose fascinating personality and charming grace have made him popular from the extreme confines of West Annapolis to the government-built bungalows on Porter Row. Being a Southerner he can't help it-he likes them one and all, and even youth does not deter-. him. That, too, is but an incidental phase of his character, a secondary attribute, a mere diversion. "Tums" is above all a gentleman. We don't mean to say it in that same tone as "Oh, she's a nice girl!" but we mean all that the term implies. John is above all a gentleman, and he thoroughly demon- strates it in his actions. Life here has hardened him, but has left him free from the taint of the "touge." Though John delights not in the amusements of the proletariat, a liberty with him is far from hum-drum. He goes on liberty like a gentleman and returns like one, with nothing more than a slightly excited heart. In studies John is one of the multitude who neither bask in the sun of superlative savviness nor dwell on the brink of the ragged edge. He never bothers the Academic Department, nor they him. Hence here, as everywhere else, he is at peace with the world. X . N To close is but to repeat. John is one of those who appreciate the meaning of the word "friend." None of the spread-eagle, Star- Spangled Banner type, but when it comes to a pinch and you want a real friend--apply to John. 183 gilbert Qllnrtnin lauuher Columbus, Ohio HGibU Buzzards Lacrosse Numeralsg Mandolin Club.

In addition to this pessimism Maje has a fondness for sad, tragic, gruesome tales: they appeal to him immensely and the more awesome the tale, the more he enjoys it. To hear Maje talk you would think that he was helplessly wooden--but a greater percentage of our Class will get out of the boat after our friend Major. For four years Maje has been connected with the baseball team, first as third sacker on the regulars, and then as manager.

His natural tendency to avoid all matters pertaining to studies is probably due to a likewise natural savviness. His star Younster Year proved what he could do were he energetically inclined, and his savviness will again come to the surface when he exchanges the star for the pur le. However, remove the studies, and you have one of the hardest workers in the Class. He has made himself invaluable to the Masqueraders as Propman and Stage Manager. No matter what the work in hand, Harold was on the job from before the start until after the finish, stopping only to "roll one." His recklessness on the gridiron is responsible for the re-rigging of the flies, as well as for much of the successful decoration of the Farewell Ball. Harold has been a member of many committees, in fact, he was absolutely indispensable to them. In spite of the fact that he claims to be a Red Mike, he has an eye for beauty and an ear for music, which is proved by the words of the Class,Song, for which he is responsible, and his falsetto tenor-at least, so he calls it--which may always be heard in the crowd. can he be termed a Mexican Athleteg but he is a strong supporter of every branch of sport, with an ever-ready word of encouragement for those who need it most. He is a confirmed member of the Cosmopolitan Club and other Radiator associations. As a Get-Rich-Quick-Wallingford he has no equal in the Academyg but a large part of his mathematical labors are spent in solving such problems as: How long would it take a one-legged, cross- eyed fly to crawl around the moon, provided he did not sneeze? Horne's wit and near-jokes would tend to make the unacquainted listener believe him incapable of seriousness, but to know him is to see a side of his character which argues for an unusual amount of commonsense. From the first he has avoided the Hops and social activities around the Academy, the cause for which attitude the world will discover soon after these pages appear.

IP has often been accosted by total strangers as "Mn Daw," and in truth he does resemble in general contour and mien the talented companion and side partner of J. Rufus. Certain of his exploits, also, approximate in some respects the methods of that noted income specialist-he thinks not in dollars nor in candy checks, as do third-rate rafflers, but in hundreds. Dip's mental disturbances are not limited to financial masterpieces, however. He can tell, to the seventh decimal place, the I.V. with which a I4" projectile must be fired with ff' equal to 900, in order that it may become a satellite of the earth-and similar valuable data. But he has a violent objection to useful boning in any shape or form, and the fact that he can stand well under the century mark in the Class with a minimum of application speaks well for an otherwise doubt- ful intellect. From motives of delicacy, we refrain from mentioning affairs of the heart, it is sufficient to say that Dip in reverie is a melancholy, depressing sight-from which we may draw conclusions as we please. He is that rara avis, a Dago phenom, which attribute has excited the envious admiration of many less fortunate aspirants. Scarcely less noteworthy is his devotion to ragtime-and it is to this quality that we owe the presence in Smoke Hall of that most popular instrument of music and mirth-our pianola. Dip launched this enterprise on his own hook, so to speak and the Class un- . it C , doubtedly owes him a vote of thanks for many melodious hours. l Cn first acquaintance Dippy would seem to betray marked rhino proclivities-he dearly loves to revile things as they are. But this is a mere affectation, and, in common with many other sides of his disposition, not to be taken too seriously. His was meant to be a poetic nature-his coiffure is an unanswerable argument-and his outbreaks of poetry take the form of rhythmic revilings. Despite certain small eccentricities, on which we have perhaps placed undue stress, Dip is a fun-loving, congenial companion, capable at times of serious discourse, but more often prone to badinage.

T is hard to tell whether or not jake missed his calling when he landed in this part of the world. Sometimes it strikes one that the ideal life for him would be to marry a girl who is not much on talking, but is a good listener, and take her back to Iowa on a little farm where he could raise porkers and make his own cigars. Then again, he 'is well fitted for being a politician, or almost anything that calls for a good steady line. As for the Navy, he has fine rolling sea- going gait, threatens to have the figure of an admiral by the time he is a lieutenant, and is a shark at Ordnance. So you see, he should succeed in this world, no matter what he really does. Lita started in while the rest of us were still "prepping," but he got to thinking so much about dear old Iowa that he packed his duds in February and went home for a few months. He came back again in June and started all over with usp and bids fair to finish well on the weather side. He is wooden, there is no doubt about that. That 2.5 would come easier to him if he didn't have a continuous inclination toward passing the honey all study hour. He held down a job in the middle of the class football line, and did it well. With all his chatter, Lita is right there. You seldom hear him rhino, he is a good pal, and will go as far as the next man. Just one pointer to the 0. mess he joins-don't make him caterer!

A bright boy in school, it was not long before he had gained quite a name throughout Davenport as a debater, as well as that of a hard-working lad who might well have a great future as a German statesman. But the gods decided otherwise, and Osky came to the U. S. N. A., bringing that bland Dutch smile of his along with him. At times, though, this smile has had a rather wan appearance, especially when at sea.

As a fusser Oscar does not "stack up." At the present date the only instances known when he has even deigned to look at one of the other sex are once or twice when Stoff was his protector. It is safe to say that Osky is not destined to be a social aide. Since being in the Academy Oscar has been a hard workerg anything that can- - not be understood can be memorized, is the motto he has gone on. And he has made good at it, too, as his two stripes show. Plebe Year, Osky won his lacrosse numerals. Since then, however, his athletic abilities have been devoted to the Mexican style of sport and to the development of the weak and extra swimming squads of which he has been a charter member. Meanwhile, the home town has not forgotten its boy wonder, for on youngster leave Oscar made a grand speech to the Sons of Veterans and on Second Class Cruise all the home papers hailed him as the "Davenport Boy Naval Officer."

OUR years ago this young savage deserted his little wigwam in the wild and woolly West and decided to cast his lot with the Pampered Pets at Crabtown. Since then, Roy has spent a fair portion of his time spinning yarns about the wilds of Oklahoma, his Happy Hunting Ground. Here is a man with a personality that will make him a host of friends. He always greets you with a smile and a hearty typical western handshake-even a tramp would feel wel- come in his presence. jonsey is not what is commonly known as a savoir, but studies have been the least of his worries. He is too much of a care-free, happy-go-lucky type to ever worry about being unsat. He is what you will call a real optimist, for the Cherokee was never known to be downhearted-even when her letter didn't come C?J. Moreover, said Cherokee is blessed with a sgfiicient quantity of horse sense to carry him through any battle in life with his ensign nailed to t e mast. And the way the femmes fall for his winning smile! Always in the thick of a tea-fight, and as for the hops-he is perfectly at home. But, alas! this is Leap Year, and we fear that it has proved his downfall. The manuscripts he receives in the mail are all sent special delivery, and the glint that shows in his eyes as he reads them verifies his queer actions in telling us that Cupid's arrow has struck deep. . He has a heart of gold, and would lend his last sock to a friend. He was once inclined to enjoy rough-housing, but the blow that Cupid dealt him has left him dignified and reticent. His sterling qualities are brought out by the fact that he has many friends and no enemies-outside of the various Academic Depart- ments. From all indications Jonsey will soon divorce his present wife, Bear Sternberg, and answer Cupid's call. But whatever you do, Roy, we wish you all the luck and happiness in the world.

OHN is a great lad-anybody-except John-will tell you that. The first thing you notice about john is his disposition. John has one of the kind you read about in books. Ten minutes' exposure to Sternberg's contagious good nature will drive away the deepest of glooms. You can't resist him. He seems to have the uncanny faculty of sizing up the mood you're in and applying the right treatment. Since First Class Year began the Bear has adjusted difficulties and misunderstandings, which, without his tactful management, would have amounted to trouble. Quite a bit of John's time has been spent in making sketches for the Lucky Bag. Oflicially he is on the Art Staff, but Art doesn't bother john-he writes biographies, helps out the type- writer squads, evolves new ideas, sings on the Trained Seals, and-yes, he even supplies his fellow-editors with tobacco-all this-for the Lucky Bag.

HP' I John has ever and anon been in the habit of falling in love -this violet-scented letter-a-day kind-but affairs of this sort have been so frequent with him that they no longer cause comment. John's ideas in regard to studying seem to be to keep on the weather side of a 2.5 and to leeward of a 3.0, the first he does with ease, the second with effort. We will close as we began-John is a great ladkand is one of the men who have made our four years here something to be remembered. 193 Stanton jrehzritk Zkalk Washington, District of Columbia ' Usuell ERE is a person who lives to eat. If you Want to hit him where he is weak invite him out to have a plank steak, or, better yet, let him invite you, for he believes in eating at any price. And boxes .... well-the whole left wing camps outside of his door at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Speaking of camping, sh-h-hl dangerous ground. Every year he spends part of his leave camping near the Shenandoah, and to hear him rave, "he certainly do enjoy them." When he comes back he always gets you in a corner and tells you about the-Oh! well, same old song, another verse. Before he came into the Navy he was quite a naturalist and can still tell you the "race, color and previous condition of servitude" of any bird, simply by hearing it pass by. He would rather fish off the mole at Gib than go ashore, and he will tell you about the three- foot sunfish that he almost caught there. They woulcln't bite-neither would we. But don't gather from this that Sue hasn't attracted attention while here. Youngster Year, after winning a three-legged race, he gained renown by almost driving a winning team for the Old Seventh Company in the chariot race in regular Ben Hur style. He would have won but for the fact that the laws of physics overcame his i true Roman spirit, and on rounding a turn, forced him to relinquish i his command and make a flying moor at the edge of the crowd. Incidentally, he spent several days in Sick Bay. Sue is a soccer player and shares with Captain Ziroli the honor of scoring the points for our championship team. He is supposed to have an ear for music, for he often entertains CPD Freddy with Neapol- itan-like strains from his mandolin until Freddy becomes disgusted and plays QD the thing himself. Sue, while quiet, enjoys a rough house and is as true a friend as any man could wish. Anyone will be happy to have him for a ship- mate. He is decidedly quiet, and it may require an effort on your part to become acquainted with him, but your efforts will be well expended.

RED became a member of 1916 by chance rather than by choice, but we realized at once that he belonged with us. He is one of the few survivors of a certain storm that raged Plebe Year, the same storm that carried away Deac and Duff. We have never regretted his acquisition nor his remaining, for a more likeable, whole-hearted, natural shipmate would be hard to find. Those who know him well, and those who do not, can always be sure of Freddie's assistance, whether it be of a financial nature or the yet more uncertain one of dragging for a friend. He is never outwardly rhino and if he has any troubles keeps them to himselff Pbeneath a ipheery eiceerior. Never too busy to listen to a joke, or to tell one, old or new, even i e is out a ter the oo. Class football and baseball team followers always counted one place well filled when Freddie showed up for practice. His work has been consistent, gritty, and thorough. A game is never over for him until the final whistle, and Kirtland plays just as hard whether victory or defeat is assured. Plebe Year he was one of Prof. Bell's Star pupils in all combina- tions of the eight fundamental steps. Since then his development as a dancer and a fusser has been steady. Lately it has taken a more or less constant trend, and rumor places him on the list of our early Benedicts. Official figures regarding class standing are not representative of his mental powers. For three years his memory of the letters on the l eye test sheets has dumbfounded the Medical Department and frus- trated their best efforts to bilge him for short-sightedness. If they finally succeed, the Service' will lose a good man. His ability is unquestioned and his tendency to look at the lighter side instead of the more serious is a trait which experience will steady down. In the Navy, or in cit life, he is sure to gain the confidence of his associates and the respect of all who know him. "Let's go get the 'Coo.' " ' 195 Jesse iilnph ikentnnrtbp, Sir.

A. Cilp Vice President CID. ESSE is a man that you like instinctively. He is quiet and reserved, yet there is something about him that makes friends as rapidly as Monk Alger works Ordnance probs. Kenny is a clean-cut individual and an athlete who believes in rigorous training. One look into that clear eye of jesse's will convince a coach that the man is playing the game squarely. He has been a football man for all his four years and the team has profited by his presence on the field. It was as a member of the Class Committee that Kenworthy did his best work, better by reason of its being unknown. Slow to anger, judicial in temperament, and conscientious in the discharge of his duties, he gave poise to the less logical members of the council and did much toward bettering the conditions in the class. It is considered good form to mention a man's prowess in the field of the futive femme, so it becomes necessary to say that Kenworthy is normal. He likes the ladies Cwe all doD, but doesn't allow his attention to stray too far afield. He has a pleasant manner and is perfectly at ease wherever he may be, but he is no dallier in the Primrose Path.1 His classmates turn unconsciously to ,less when trouble overtakes them, for his advice is sound and carefully weighed before given. He is S .. not of the sort that passes snap judgment on the questions that come in the Day's Work, and that trait alone makes him of intrinsic value to the Service. When the final summing-up of our work at the Academy comes to the Recording Angel, Kenworthy is going to stand well towards the top-he hasn't advertised his ability with the old familiar brand of Smoke Hall oratory, but there are many among us who see in him an unobtrusive power for the good of his fellows. It is refreshing and encouraging to find in all this noisy crew a man who can give unselfish advice, keep counsel, and be loyal to a friend at all times. Whatever the occasion, we who know him expect great things of jesse, and will claim him proudly as our own when names and dates are mentioned. 196 iBauI white iliutlehgz Lincoln, Illinois "Gloom" Buzzard: Class Football C4D. ON'T let the name Gloom deceive you, for Paul is the best-hearted and most good- natured pal that anyone ever had. He came to these parts experienced in the naval activities of Culver, and it is rumored that he sacrificed a commission there as lieu- tenant-commander in order to get closer to the real ranks of Uncle Sam. Harmony is the synonym for Gloom's middle name, and if you ever hear a crowd of serenaders filling the corridors with a 'dreamy symphony, you will not have to look long to find Paul at their center. On the Missouri his quartette was a huge success. He takes a cruise with the idea that it is the only way to make September come faster, which is the best way to keep happy aboard ship. Who could have called him Gloom had they seen him some night on the quarter deck, propped up against a bulkhead, smoking a "Romeo and Juliet," and listening to the syncopated strains that only a good old Navy Band can produce? Savvy? Yes-No. just comfortably so. No one has ever seen him boning real hard, but ,., he gets there just the same and on the top side too. There is Q' not a song that he does not know, and besides, he can sing a bunch of them that you have never heard before. If you want to enjoy a liberty and make the most of it, go with the Gloom. He knows how to get to places where the best time is to be had and where things are most interesting. For instance, ask him about his visit to His Royal Highness in Buckingham Palace, while at London. The fair sex hold but a wee corner in his heart, although from the tales he tells, they must have occupied a large part of his past. The class, one and all of us, thank Culver for giving us Paul, and we are sure that the future will belie his nickname. "Dog- gone you, Gloom!" How'd you like to be the Gloom? 197 jllilerrill iiierther Goshen, Indiana HAbe,, HAbieH Buzzardg Crew Squad 1253 Football Numeralsg Football N. BE would be a statistician's fruit. He is a shining example of the results of Navy beans, Navy beef, and. Navy prunes when properly assimilated. The before-and-after pic- tures you see in magazines aren't in it. When Abe entered he weighed about I50 pounds and busted in his strength test. He ended up at '220 pounds and busted half the strength machines. Plebe Summer, along with most of us, Abe frequented the awkward squad and learned his infantry, and a whole lot of other things, too, from the ground up. As he expressed it, everything is "ground up" into one in this Navy. Abe started athletics very gently. For two years he satisfied himself with the indoor sports, but he kept growing and growing, in every way except financially Cbeing in the Navyj, until Second Class Year he reported to Doug and took up football as his avocation. After one season with the hustlers he made good with a vengeance, and the past season found him with the best linesmen we had. From the beginning of the season until the last whistle in the Army Game, Abe was right there doing his share and more besides. In the Old Navy, when a Plebe was still a Plebe, Abe was there with the mild forms of admonition then in vogue, and the Plebes certainly used to slink around the corner at his approach. Abe is pretty savvy when he cares to bone, but the rules of the tea game worried him at first. Rumor has it that at his first tea-fight he found a comfortable corner and a magazine. When he was discovered he is said to have escaped by a window, but he insists it was only the back door. . Abe is the best kind of a friend to have. His beaming countenance makes you feel that the Navy isn't such a bad place after all, and that perhaps you'll stay in as much as a whole year after your graduation. If he is the same success as an officer as he has been as a midshipman, the Service is due for one mighty fine ensign. 198 Qmus igarstutn Bout Providence, Rhode Island "Amos" "Rootchums" "Stiffy" Two Stripesg Rifle Squad C4, 3, 2, ID: RNT: Soccer Squad Q4D3 Soccer Numeralsg Manager Rilie Team: Sharpshooter, Expert: U.

WO twinkling blue eyes, a crop of close curly hair Che pronounces it "hayah"J, a wonderful dental display and a pair of eloquent hands that gesticulate a language all their own --"Amos Barstow Root"-present. Amos is always a live wire, and there are very few among the midshipmen, or the officers either, for that matter, who do not know that the handle to the above dental display is "Root." And as for the ladies, God bless 'em, they all fall for him. The first of every October bears tales of the long lines of Providence beauties who have seen him off with a tear in each little blue eye and a quiver to each little lip. Amos has a weakness for pets. In the Antwerp "Zoo" he found a vicious-looking puma that allowed him to scratch the South American fleas from its hide, and Amos amused himself for hours while the Belgians stood around and marveled at the queer tastes of the American mind. His plush dog, which he named "Beans" after the late lamented Paul Ripley, absorbed his young affections and frequented the hops, where he made a hit with the ladies, until "Hobe's" laconic "Get rid of the menagerie, Mistah Root." Root's good qualities stick out all over him. He would give you his last dollar with the same nonchalance that he would use in peeling it off the top of a fat roll. He has a pleasant word for everybody, and it has added value because you know that it comes, right from his heart. He is a consistent worker at anything he takes up. Though he is especially adept at shooting, he is a good soccer man and somewhat of a gymnast, but it must be admitted that his abilities along this last named line are ' now confined to performing on the parlor chandeliers of Crabtown. Amos is going to be a success in the Service. His whole heart is in it, and though n0t savvy, he has enough "book Mg: learning" to bolster up a whole lot of natural ability.

RIMARILY Sid is the Old Man of the Navy. He has the Kirtland characteristic of bilging, and first showed it by giving up 1914 in favor of 1915. Then, having more troubles with the Academic Departments, he came to I9l6. Even then we nearly lost him on the Youngster semi-anns, but somehow he has pulled through and now it loo s like plain sailing. B seball is Sou-West's favorite sport and he isuin his element when getting up a team to play a a scrub game. Next to baseball, some game of chance is this Floridan's favorite pastime. The sound of "Come on, you seven," is music to his ears, and a sitting in at a little game of poker never comes amiss. . ' ' ' ' h l h The girls? Yes, Sid is a fusser, violent one and fickle. The tale IS told of how e ost is heart on the West Coast First Class Cruise and then lost it again a month or so later on his return to Crabtown. They also tell of a fifty-three-word telegram that came across the continent soon after this. "Pink envelope Sid" is his title in ' if the world of femmes. As a friend there are none better than Sou-West. He will lend the last cent, and according to Tommy if you room with him you can borrow clothes too. Nothing ever seems to phase this son of the South: Boob Lowman caught him smoking three times in the same day Plebe Summer and the Plebes beat him most unmercifully when he put a dummy in his roommate's bed on Christmas morning of Second Class Year, but Sid came out smiling both times. Once in a great while he gets serious and stands on his dignity. It is best not to molest him then. As a rule, though, Sid is the happy man of the crowd and it will be a lucky J.

U ES, sir, you couldn't live around here for those two months without getting at least ten demerits every single day!" "How many did you get, Mr. Thompson? " "Ahem-er-twenty-four, sir!" That is Tommy all over. And the worst of it is that you can't tell when he means what he says and when he has his hat over his mouth. Bill came to us from 1915 on account of a disagreement he had with the English profs his first Plebe Year. But since he has joined I9I6, he has completely routed all attacks of the Academic De artment. Tommy llllas never missed a hop if he could get there by fair means or foul. What the girls would do if he were not there is beyond all imagination, for, be it known, Tommy is quite some man with the ladies. Every now and then he gets heart disease over one of the fair sex, but so far he has successfully recovered from all relapses and we look to him to keep up the good work. At one time this lanky Virginian had a very effective and persuasive manner with Plebes, but a cruise on the U. S. S. Bancroft and a membership in Company A First Class Summer brought about a remarkable change and now a Plebe is sufficient cause for immediate flight. As a track man, Bill is A number one. Une of the best quarter milers the Academy has produced, he has been a member of two record-breaking relay teams and holds the indoor quarter mile record. With another season yet to be heard from we expect that the old four-forty record will go by the , board if Webb really gets into shape. ' Second Class Year Tommy made a cruise on the U. S. S. Reina Mercedes for four months. Part of this sojourn was on account of his love for the other side of the Academy wall and the rest was because of his craving for Nick-O-Teen. Since that cruise, Tommy has been, with the usual large number of exceptions, a model boy. First Class Year Will was made a Battalion Staff Petty Ofllcer and there being nothing much to do on this job, it just suited him. But seriously, Tommy is an able man and a mighty good friend to all who know him. It is enough to say that 1916 is proud that he has been one of its members. "Yes, suh, I had eleven uncles killed at the Battle of Gettysburg, every one of them brothers!" 20 l Gruber Cllllehelanh Zfslein Mt. Orab, Chio HPOPH llcrunchfl 4 . ' Captain Crew. 1 HO EVER heard of Mount Orab before Crunch steered a course for Bancroft Hall? -no one, we may safely wager. Pop landed in our midst with the earnest purpose of allowing himself to be gigged by no one and with a sharp lookout for city slickers. w Plebe Year he got off with a bad start and bid.fair to beat to the windward of a 2.5 with small margin to spare, but Youngster Year he blossomed out into afull-fledged savoir by trying to beat out Swanse, and since, he has steadily climbed numbers until to-day- gaze upon those well earned two-stripes. Life in Crunch's room is one continual effort on the part of Swanse to gig his wife, with Pop straining every nerve to hold his own, and incidentally slip over a few on the Cerise Hound. Up to First Class Year Pop was one of the most confirmed of red mikes, but alas for his well-loved principles, they soon went by the board. We soon saw at the beginning of the cruise that the crisis was near and when he started to comb his hair straight back and break out a new blouse, we gave up hope. Sure enough, at San Diego Crunch annexed a femme ten minutes after the liberty party hit the beach, and now , , I Wm-A V no hop would be complete without him. As an athlete, Crunch has earned distinction. Starting out by making himself one of the mainstays of our Plebe crew, he earned a place on the Varsity Second Class Year and held it to such good pur- pose as to gain him the captaincy this year. Always a hard worker, he has put all his perseverance and persistent effort into the task of turning out a good eight, and with him as a leader our chances for the Henley look very good indeed. Crunch has a high sense of duty and he holds down his two stripes with able efficiency. The duty of keeping the Sixth Company file closers in shape has been no easy one, as many can testify. He has a big heart and generous nature, and he possesses principles which he i lives up to without pretense of holier than thou. 202 Two Stripesg Crew Numerals: Crew N, lpman iiinute Stnensun Provo, Utah "Swanse" "Pinkey" Buzzard, Lacrosse Squad 12, U, Lacrosse Numeralsg Basketball Squad C4J. ', NUTE the Terrible Dane came to us from the polygamous wilds of Utah. But his troubles w.ere by no means over when his change of residence became permanent. From the instant that his sunny smile and glorious crown of hair incarnadine were seen by the first class they marked him for their very own. Many the monument that was - unveiled thereafter, with Swanse playing the title r6le, and many the Plebe in the year 1913 that thanked his lucky stars that his name was not Swenson when the imperious bellow for "Swanse!

In a basketball. game Plebe Year he threw a basket 'while the coach was watching, and was immediately placed on the training table, where he stayed approximately two weeks, returning at that time, full of honors, to his proper table, where he resumed his statuesque behavior. But these activities are not Swanse's forte. By no means! As a breaker of hearts he is the peer of his classmates, be they ever so witty, be they ever so dexterous with the tea-cup and sandwich, or be they ever so handsome. The secret of his charm is his dear gray, unspoiled eye, his wholesome laugh, and his refreshing, ingenuous, unsuspecting want of tact. Swanse never utters an insincere word, never voices an unhappy thought, always has the best of intentions and whenever he opens his mouth usually manlages to put his foot in it. Acrobatic, that last, but the trut . Not many weeks from now this ruddy-cheeked Berserker with the heart of a man and the tenderness of a woman will walk over the gangway of a battleship and call it "home." To most of us he will be lost, for the Service is very wide. But the memory of the old lovable Swanse will always awaken in the hearts of his classmates a pang of regret that the parting had to be. , In the lap of Fortune lie the cards of our futures, and some of us will draw blanks. But if we could only stack the cards Swanse would have the best that Fortune holds for those whose hearts are solid gold.

OC roomed with the departed Molly for three years and bore up nobly, be it said to his credit. But even this soothing influence could not for long keep him out of the eye as an orator of no mean talent and as a target for Special Paps. Poor Doc has spent a vast portion of his four years afloat, which in most cases would bring about a marked decrease in class standing, but it doesn't seem to phase the General at all. On the contrary, he has always stood well in spite of the setbacks of this and like nature. Where he shines principally though, is in his ability to heave the hop. As a walla-walla dis- penser he is without a peer, and is deservedly famous for his accomplishment. He could per- suade a militant suf that women have no rights at all, to speak of 5 or he could as rapidly make an anti blush with confusion over her unrighteous viewpoint. No subject can be suggested on which Doc has not the most decided opinions-either way, at will, and he can speak with unfaltering tongue for hours at a time without once repeating himself-which makes him valuable as a staller at the Eleventh Company banquets. Do not conclude that this is the General's sole claim to a place in the sun. He has always been an enthusiastic fusser, abso- - lutely tireless, but during his First Class Year he has embraced his opportunities to their fullest extent-with concentration, however, not indiscriminately-which certainly is commendable. The General's chief pride is his coiffure-and he keeps it in an up-to-the-minute state of cultivation by countless tonics, restorers, violet waters, and knit caps. Whether his destination is a hop or a gym drill, the swimming tank or a tea-fight, his motto is ironclad: "A place for each hair and each hair in its place." But we are sure that when Doc leaves the clutches of the Dis- cipline Department he will make up for the many shackles that they have imposed upon him and forge ahead. He has all of the require- ngents of a good officer and all depends on his application of t Cm. 204 william jfisbhatk iluhentbal Georgetown, Texas UBiu77 HLoveyY, UJoeH Buzzard: Baseball Numerals. OW Joe ever heard of the pampered pets and came all the way from Texas to join their ranks is another yarn, but we are mighty glad he landed here and not somewhere else with his good nature and lazy ways. . A savvy boy is Loveyg a regular shark at mathematics, and good at almost any- thing else he tries. In athletics Joe does not shine particularly, although he does play Class baseball and is one of the best batters on the Class teams. Maybe it is his love for the weed that keeps him in. In spite of the fact that Lovey believes little in physical exercise, he was a good trainer for Sammy Milliken, whom they say Joe trained from two hundred and ten fat pounds down to a mere skeleton in two weeks. His First Class Cruise was spent on the U. S. S. Bancroft Hall, where he dodged D. O.'s, boned Nav with the aid of an artificial horizon, and most studiously avoided all Plebes. Lovey is a fusser of the intermittent type and goes to the hops only when his love for dancing gets the better of him. just why he has refrained from more open participation in this sport has always been a mystery. Few realize what a great-hearted little man and what a true friend this little Texan is. But there was one time, at least, when he showed himself as he really is under his quiet and unassuming outer self. A man who has invariably steered his own courses, Lovey has always made the ports he headed for by the shortest routes. If you ever make a liberty with Joe you are sure of a good time, and you are always certain of wanting to repeat the pleasure.

This otherwise indolent man rouses himself when the crew season rolls around, and more l than once has he made his crew hit 'er up at the little red house. Had Nature but given him a few more pounds he would long ago have made the N that his form and his knowledge of the art rightly deserve. A fortunate possessor of a most pleasing personality, he has made many friends among us, and he is sure to make many more when he goes out into the Service. We can only wish that the long-expected event in June may be the first E of a long and happy series. 206 laeman Biuhh iikzhfielh, yr. Montclair, New Jersey HRedU HR0joH 1 Class Football C255 Soccer CD. EMAN is a rare specimen of the genus midshipman. His massive dome, his quiet, pensive air, his absolute imperturbability, would at once lead you to believe him one of our greatest savoirs-but it's all wrong, Oswald, it's all wrong. He isn't such, Eddy, for so far he has reserved space in the upper branches of every Christmas Tree and May Pole that the Class has seen. We are prone to lay this to his having better things to do than study, rather than to woodenness on his part. Red has shown energy in some of his uphill climbs. Starting in first with a 1.9 in Ordnance, gathered enough speed in November to shift to high, and he is back in the road race with only half a lap to gain. It has been the ambition of the Class to discover what he ponders over-some of the skeptical have gone so far as to hint at a fatal emptiness-but realizing that for four years he has lived with the Jew, it is no wonder that he has doubtful peculiarities. Rojo has one talent-his knowledge of taxicabs is complete. He is the author of that famous collection published under the name of "Taxicab Tales," which was suppressed at the request of those in high places who figured so prom- inently in the book. Latterly he has directed his energies towards breaking the world's speed record, being part owner of the Terror of Annapolis. Red has undoubted athletic ability, but has limited his field of endeavor to the Class squads and the daily rough-house on the ground deck. As a charter member of the Back Corridor Club of the Ancient Fifth he was entitled to his usual position-the bottom of the pile. Nowhere will you find a better companion and friend than Red. His gentle nature, unstinting generosity, and whole-hearted loyalty will bring him popularity wherever he goes. mm-"Let's get the Stone!" 207 Qnhretn Qlialbnun jliilcjfall Ridgeway, South Carolina NAndyH UMaCU Battalion Staff Petty Officer: Baseball C4, 3, 2, IJ, Baseball N, Hop Committee, Farewell Ball Committeeg Class German Committee. NDY is a typical Southerner, always madly in love--with at least threeg his ,contagious smile and his dancing alone have won him hosts of friends among those who come down here. From the opening sentence you would judge that this was all there was to Mac. Far from it. It's only his principal characteristic, diversion, or attribute-suit your- self. He decided that he wouldn't Star, and he has kept his word. Dago has blulfed him at times, but after completely mastering "Je ne comprends pas, m'sieu' " and "repetez, si'l vous plait"' combined with a few "mais oui" and "comme gi, comme ga" expressions, he suc- ceeded in tearing off the requisite 2.5. Andy's chief fame is, however, in baseball. He is a mighty good pitcher, the study squad and a sore arm keeping him back during his first two years. He had the stuff all along: he showed it last year, and when this comes out, he still will be showing it. Back home-or "down yonder" as he would say-Andy was a fence breaker-and he still is. His name appeared in many a spring line up due solely to his ability to hit them "where they ain't." If you would see him smile, ask him his batting average. But if you would see his face drop, mention the swim- ming tank. Mac is a true diamond, and he swims like one. Every Monday he goes over determined and every Monday he comes back crestfallen. "What good does it do to swim?" he wails. "If the ship sinks in the middle of the ocean, they don't expect us to swim home, do they?" As we intimated before, Andy is a fusser of the first , water--he wears a belt at hops, the insignia of V. Castleism --and his hypnotic glances-well, they simply can't resist them, that's all. Andy is no seaman. "The sea," he says, "is too rough." If this, combined with the wondrous methods of the fourth deck fail to get Andy-as we sincerely trust- the Service will get a mighty fine lad--one who will be ready for everything from a tea fight to one of the more sanguinary entertainments that the Service provides at times. 208 Eames Zllfreh Stott Thomasville, Alabama Hscottyli UWumtH Uwumesfi Buzzard, Track Squadg Gymnasium Squad. HEN going "natural" Scotty has the quaintest accent that ever originated from the Black Belt. Even his wife, Old Andrew Calhoun, says this, so it must be true. First Class Cruise after some noteworthy event he came down with the statement, "It sho' was wuff it." Hence the name to which he so strenuously objects,"WufTit." f Scotty has an inherent fear of examinations and the knowledge of a two-hour P-work in Nav keeps him in a state of helpless misery. He has never outgrown the idea that the various Academic Departments are laying for him, and that they concentrate their efforts about him as a mean point of impact. Cheerup, Wufht, they seldom hit that part of operations-leash wise, in any of the Exterior Ballistic probs we ever worked out. The Wuflit is an athlete. His size belies the fact, but no one can deny the fact that a certain end on one Alabama football team was named J. A. Scott. An unfortunate accident to his knee now precludes this sport.for him, but nothin' in the world can keep him from foolin' around in the Gym. He takes an annual layoff of periods varying from one to two months in the hospital on account of this tendency.

"Good Lord, man, you'll hurt that knee of yours if you don't watch out." "Oh, I got some easy dismounts and all I do is fool round the bars. No chance of hurting myself." And so it goes, and so he goes-to the hospital. You V can't argue, can you? No. 'gh When it comes to the "quality of friendship," Scotty's got the crucible product lashed to the mast.

HIS quiet, indolent-appearing man being known to but few of the Class, it is but natural to assume that the converse is true, but ask Woody about some classmate and you will be surprised at the store of real knowledge of his fellow midshipmen that is hidden behind this apparently imperturbable countenance. Many of the Class have wider circles of acquaintance, but there are but few who can lay claim to knowing as many men as Woody. He studies his man from all possible angles and when he has finished his inves- tigations, his conclusion is worthy of careful consideration. Mac has given careful thought to questions of our everyday life that many of us are prone to let slide with merely a passing glance. He has worked out his own solutions to the questions that confront the powers-that-be among the midshipmen, and that he has not made a greater impression toward removing these difficulties is not due to any lack of effort on his part, for he expresses his opinions forcibly and clearly to all listeners. . That there are so few gaps in the gang that started this life in the old Fifth is due in no small part to lVlac's help. His own class standing has fallen off somewhat,but his savviness, demon- strated Plebe Year, has never been disputed. In spite of his apparent laziness he has served on two of the most thankless jobs that ever fall to midshipmen. Hard luck, beyond his control, delayed the publication of " Reef Points," but he produced an issue that was worth waiting for. Hops and their attendant pleasures have absolutely no attractions for Mac, who would far rather sit down with a good book. Perhaps best of all he likes to sit in Smoke Hall with his pipe and talk with some kindred spirit. Not that he spurns the conversation of the many, but for real worth-while discussion he prefers the man who catches his meaning in an instant. Woody's painstaking performance of his duty and his careful thought on every question that comes before him will r give to the Service an officer who will be worth while. 210 ilinhrrt Barber Gttnining Portland, Oregon "Mouchoir" "Robert" "Patout" "Father" i Buzzardg Basketball Numerals. LTHOUGH there are mysteries and mysteries, still there never was quite such a deep, clueless and baffling one as is presented to the world in our great one and only Rubbert. He is one man in the world who can keep perfectly quiet for four years and say more than B. R. Alexander. This is authentic, being obtained from headquarters. An explanation of the derivations of his extremely-choice cognomens would entail a lengthy treatise entirely out of proportion to the prescribed length of a biography. Suffice it to say, "Mouchoir" is, as it would not seem, a logical result of Robert's attempts to assuage the wrath of the myrmidons CPD of the Dago Department concerning the pronunciation of "Monsieur." The recorder of this strange entity's life in the marble halls of prospective Fame actually saw the subject at a hop once. Don't get worried--he wasn't dragging-just looking, and-we hesitate to say it-a certain far-away wistful look was in his brown, slightly bovine eyes. Here is still another blood-curdling unsolvable for the endeavors of that excellent house detekertive, Berkey, to solve. As an athlete, Mouche is aboard. He Haunts basketball numerals in the face of his envious roommate, who, if the worst were told, could rub him one on that subject. The lad is muscled like a miniature gladiator and, in spite of the fact that his spirometrical abilities are limited, he can swim like the rockin the cradle of the deep. He also excels in Swedish movements. Second Class Cruise he was told to exercise the Powder Division at quarters, and was much chagrined i l at not finding them in the forward magazine. Mouchoir has a love' for the practical, rather than the theoretical, and has adopted a system of approximations for all occasions. Ask him about it. Also his "aids to the memory" are equaled only by those of the famous Nl. Olivet. Twining looks the part of an officer. From earliest to present infancy a sword has Httingly taken the place of a rattle. On Christmas Leave, although in "cits," a passing sailor remarked that "That kid looks like an officer." And he is so-essentially an ofricer and a gentleman. 211 George jreherit Martin, San Francisco, California "Sleuth" "George" "Marteen" Buzzard. OU will know Sleuth by his walk and his ching both are very evident. His walk is unique, being a modification of a long, rolling bounce. As for his chin, that is characteristic of the many strong, square and determined. Stick-to-it-iveness is one of George's names and it is by this sterling quality alone that he has stayed with us and made good. If it is impossible to make a 2.5 one day, all that is needed is a little of the Sleuth's energy and determination to more than make up for it the next. ' It is rather difficult to know and understand George at first, and few really become acquainted with him until they have known him a long time. But once his outer shell is penetrated, a better friend or a better companion would be hard to find. With his seemingly inexhaustible store of dry wit Sleuth could even give pointers to Hobey, and a crowd never lacks a laugh when George is around. The Sleuth has never shown any inclination towards athletics of any sort. Neither has he indulged in the fine art of fussing, being a red mike of the first water, with the exception of one or two instances First Class Year when he surprised the natives by appearing with a fair damsel from Crabtown. The question was once asked as to why George was called Sleuth. The only answer is that to really know why, one must see him when he is bound for a movie show and is a few minutes late. It will not only make evident the reason for the name, but is sure to explain why George is never seasick. But aside from all this: George is a man by whom anyone may be proud to be called a friend and on whom one may stake his last cent and be sure of winning in the long run. The word "fail" has been crossed out of Marteen's dictionary. 212 jllilalculm willarh Bash Lexington, Massachusetts "Tom" "Malcolm" Three Stripes, Track Squad C4, 3, 2, ID. CME of us remember the day Tom came in, late in Plebe September, a white, scared little face peeping out of the voluminous folds of new works. In the Armory he confided that he "dicln't know anything, Sir," and Dutch Reinburg, then a mighty three-striper, detailed Bobby Bourne to teach him the manual. To-day Tom's face is neither white nor scared, he is himself a three-striper, one of the best in the regiment, and it is precious little anybody can teach him about his job. In the last four years Tom has developed, both mentally and physically, perhaps more than any other man in the Class. One of the youngest among us and standing high, he stands a good chance of reaching the grade of Lieutenant Commander before retiring. Tom is of the type which makes a fine officer. He takes a pride in his work because it is his work, and never rests until he produces results. Add to this a generous hand and a jolly soul and you have a pretty good shipmate to share your leasures and troubles with. Reed has been out for track for four years. g'hree of these he spent out for the quarter. We hate to say it, Tom, but being a Lexington farmer, you must have been thinking of the old horse that pulls the milk wagon when you went plugging around that track. First Class Year he pat- , ronized the weights, where the solid nature of the lower part of his anatomy stood him in better stead. With the ladies Tom cuts a dashing figure. He is rather susceptible to the blandishments of the fair sex and often falls rather suddenly, but thus far has revived nobly from each shock. We have mentioned that Tom is a farmer. He is, and never tires of dilating of the joys of life on the farm. We hold this as an encouraging sign, for there is no surer indication of a man being a fit sailor. Sailor you must be, Tom, for we refuse to get along without proud to claim you as one of us. 213 you.

HE little Andy who joined the nucleus of 1916 was the child of the Class, but-my, how that boy has grown! Having learned all the byways of Crabtown during his embryonic days at Bobby's, he sailed through the entrance exams and broke out his new works. Of those first days more anon. Since his Plebe Summer days on the track, Andy has never let an athletic season pass without going out for something. He was a pillar of strength in the line of the Class foot- ball team, until jonas spotted him and forthwith transferred him to the Varsity squad, where he made the regulars hustle to hold their jobs. His work on the Varsity basketball squad has this year been augmented by his managerial duties, in which line he gave the team the best schedule we have seen. Q - DeGraff rooms with the terrible Swede, Solberg, and the two are as thick as Monday slum. He has been known to join the Sixth Company wrecking crew, but for the most part he prefers to spend his really spare time in a general bull-fest with the boys. He is at his best on these occa- sions when he relates his harrowing details of his introduction into "Life in the Navy." Whatever his adventures may have been, they certainly lose nothing in Andy's narration. Mayer is a good shipmate, whether it be sweating in a fireroom or ashore making a liberty. His proficiency in the latter dates from the time when in Paris he broke from the ranks of the soda-hounds. Make a liberty with Andy and you'll both enjoy it. When Andy departed from the placid shores of Maple Lake, he left two girls behind him. Now that is one of the best things he does, for each time the mudhook comes up at least two femmes are waving to him from the dock, and when it drops again in the next port, there's another waiting for him. His frank, hearty manner has won him many friends in all four classes, and it will not be his fault if his ship is not a happy one.

' I'L ARTHUH has been spreading sunshine among us for many dreary years, and his radiant countenance is still as welcome as the orb of day, for Orty never palls on one. Scandi- hoovian by birth, nature and inclination, he embodies all the Norseland virtues, being slow to wrath, faithful to the end of time, and a lover of sport for its own dear sake. As an athlete he has showed the stuff the Commodores talk about in Smoke Hall speeches-that ancient love of a free-for-all as distinguished from this anything-to-win idea. George Finlayson thinks that Ort is the only original, and there are many of us that incline to George's belief. Solly has been hard at work in everything that these "middies" play, and a string of numerals topped off by an LNT prove that he has been successful. His domicile is a Viking's Rest, for that other Norseman, Andy-of-the-carmine-cheeks, has lived in domestic felicity with him for a happy four years. That old theory about like natures is all bunk, for the two have lived in perfect amity, though they are as like as peas in a pod. The evil associations of that Camorra, the Sixth Company, have left both lads unscathed. A fondness for the ladies has been struggling in Artie's breast ever since Youngster Year, but he has never broken out with the most violent stages of the disease. Content rather to watch them as they drift by, he has escaped without being forced to bear the emblem of toil-the well-filled hodg but neither has he laid up a reputation as a page of fair ladies. Practical men are much needed in this day of iron ships and-need we add the rest?--and above all things else, Grty is practical. Those that have seen him on the practice ballyhoos know what joy it brings to his heart to talk to the Chiefs con- cerning the seamy side of this round of pleasure. To him a watch below is a source of amusement, for he loves to see the wheels go 'round.

Denmark, South Carolina "Marquis" "Major" M Buzzards Football Numeralsg Baseball Numerals. HE Marquis is one of those stolid souls who are the backbone of any organization, social, political, or otherwise: while those of us who possess-or imagine we possess-tempera- ment, are wildly wrought up over some incidental happening-while we run the gaunt- let of the emotions-the Marquis is quite apt to wonder what all the fuss is about. There is nothing subtle or complex about the Marquis' character--he says what he means and usually means what he says-which is little. During his early days here the Marquis had a few encounters with the Steam Department. He sailed pretty close to the breakers, but finally got an off-shore breeze during his Youngster Year and since then the Academic Department has held no terror for him. His tastes and activities are bounded geographically by a zone includ- ing Bancroft Hall, Moore's and the movies. On occasions the Scion of Denmark deigns to appear at hops and he fusses with the rare dignity of the ante-bellum days. . The Marquis has been a performer on both the class baseball and football teams. There is nothing flashy, brilliant, or erratic about his playing, but his steadying influence has stood the teams in good stead on many occasions when a slight ascension would have proved disastrous-or metaphorically speaking, would have "spilt the beans." Marquis is from the South and is-as he should be-right proud of it. During his early days here, when still unaware of the subtle methods of his classmates, the Marquis was often led on to discuss "Abolition and its effects on the South." It was on such occasions that "our Son" became eloquent, and the earnestness with which he supported his views showed that he possessed the strength and courage of his convictions. The Marquis is a gentleman of the old school-throughout the course he has maintained the ideals with which he entered and he will add to the Service, not a brilliant officer, but one who can be relied on absolutely in a crisis-and that is what counts. "What you mokes doin' down there?" 216 Zlrcbzr williams within Washington, District of Columbia "Arch" "Archer" Buzzard: Football Numeralsg Track Numerals, Choir CD. I RCHER is the professional strong boy of the Class, recitals of his prowess being as com- mon as "In debt" on the pass books. When dismounting the piece at Artillery, Archer waves the gun crew back and proceeds to lift off the piece himself 5 they relate a story of target practice when he threw a shell in so hard that it fell out of the muzzle: - and at coaling-Arch likes to get in a lighter all by himself, surrounded by empty bags, and then shovel fifteen or twenty tons-take a breath and repeat. His strength has been mani- fested to good ends on the Track Team and the Class Football Team. On the former he tosses the shot as most of us would a golf ballg and in the latter--well, they usually try his position once-just once. Archer is somewhat like his roommate, the Marquis, in many things. With them it seems to be a case of like attracting like, for they are a most congenial pair. They are always together on liberty, be it Annapolis or Antwerp-and when the kicker comes in for the liberty party Arch and the Marquis are always there-together. Arch is not-or rather has not been-immune from sea sickness. He was a charter member of the "Alley" habitues on the Illinois and he maintained his reputation on the following cruise, but First Class Cruise left him with a clear record. Archer too, like the Marquis, fusses rarely-in fact their appear- ances practically coincide, and 'either the Marquis is dragging for Arch or vice versa. Had he not entered the Navy Arch would doubt- less have become a vaudeville favorite, for he possesses a deep sea bass, a gift of mimicking, and a peculiar gait that make his rare and impromptu performances well worth watching. In putting the finishing touches on Arch we can but repeat what we said about the Major-that in him the Service will gain a man- not brilliant-but absolutely dependable. 217 Qiibeuhure Zllibnmas Patterson 6 Camden, New Jersey "Pat" "Old Man" "Teed" Two Stripesg Choir Q4, 3, 2, ID: Leader C115 Mas- queraders C455 Glee Club CQ, ID: Farewell Ball Committee. AT first came into prominence when he won the grand prize at the Baby Show in Camden. We decline to tell how long ago this was, but it is an historical fact, nevertheless. The next big thing in his life was when he came to Crabtown. This brings us up to the present--what will happen next some of us think we know, but we're not telling. Before the Old Man struck this place he was a newspaper reporter, and many are the blood- curdling yarns he can tell about that profession. At Bobby's, Pat laid the foundation of a rhino reputation, and has been living it down ever since. This reputation is due to his having his own ideas about things and to his being man enough to stand by them. He was the reggest Plebe in the place and the next year he became the hardest Youngster. Plebes still hold the name of Patterson in awe, even in these times of peace. In the earliest days of Plebe Summer Teed appeared as a song bird. Since then he has been charming the congregation at Chapel with his soulful lyric tenor. Pat can sing anything and fits equally well with the oratorio trios in Chapel and the scrap-iron quartettes in Smoke Hall. Patterson's activities have been entirely musical. For four years he has been a large part of the Choir, and since the Glee Club was organized he has been an all-important member, while he has several times con- tributed to the Masquerader programs. Youngster Year he blossomed forth as a fusser, but in late years his attentions have been more or less concentrated, mostly more. Pat and Raddy have lived together for four years and there is but one instance on record of their having to call in the Nl. C. more than once a week. They are very good friends and Pat has been known to let Raddy drag his girl for one day-something no one else will let him do. Through and through he is a polished gentleman and has friends enough for any man. Those of us who know him real well have been more than rewarded for our trouble in getting acquainted.

ADDY came to us a child--a pink-cheeked Apollo, since then he has been fooling people. He fooled Bobby first of all, then Pat: Plebe Year he fooled the Dago Department and since then the Academic Board in general, and with everybody else fooled he picked on the ladies and has been the delight and despair of their trusting hearts ever since. He has been in love every New Year's andrevery june Week for three years. The last one promised to be fatal, but we have reason to believe that he is still fooling. The first terrible blow struck Raddy his Second Class Year when he got a smoking pap with a hop only a week off, he hasn't gotten over it yet. Even now when clutching a reg. smoke in Smoke Hall he has shifty eyes out for the 0. C. Let it not be understood that Raddy drags to all the hops-a fusser as it were-not at all. He drags often, but not always, and he never drags a brick. Take Arthur out to meet a car bringing.a contingent from Miss Brickdust's School in Washington there is bound to be one queen in the party and you can bet that li'l' Arthur will draw her. He doesn't overwork his lucky star, however, and maybe that is the reason for his high average. Raddy's athletic activities have been limited to track and he is no mean performer there. He has won points for the Navy in the dashes- and the dashes never have been particularly slow around 'i " here. 'I ff' He rooms with Pat and a more "clubby" pair couldn't be found. Under Pat's influence he is occasionally able to make a very creditable 4 showing at some of the rhino parties that crop out here and there. He is fond of a joke, goatless, and would rather sit up all night and bull than woo the gentle goddess. He has as many friends as any man in the class and deserves them. He has had occasional visions of a "Little Grey Home in the West," but can't quit fooling long enough for them to materialize. Who knows? He might fool us. "Got any change, Pat?" 219 l Capitan, New Mexico CCDutch!7 HBugsH Buzzardg Chairman Class Pipe Committee, Class Ring Committeeg Hop Committee CIE. UTCH began his residence in Crabtown in the hallowed precincts of St. john's and liked the quiet atmosphere so much that he decided to stay and join the "regular Service." Notwithstanding this innate love for rural simplicity, Ernie has been known on several occasions to make exceedingly rough liberties. In Paris, his first glimpse of the Moulin Rouge disgusted him so much that he was confined to his bed the next day with com- plications of sea sickness and headache. To be frank however, liberal applications of "vin fin du Rhin," taken internally, are about the only thing that can disturb his equilibrium. Second Class Year Dutch showed his grit by heaving old John Barleycorn overboard, and what's more, by keeping him there. To the casual observer Dutch is a quiet, peaceful, level-headed little man. He is-as a rule. But turn him loose and then stand from under, for when the cowboy in him hits the trail he cer- tainly merits the title of "Bugs." Get him and Carrie in the same room, and the combination looks like the cross-section view of the violent ward of a lunatic asylum. This weakness may be partially excused by the fact that four years' trials with Ted Young would sap any man's strength of mind. Dutch's business ability and good taste are shown by the services he rendered in helping to select our rings and pipes, both of which have been received with universal praise and satisfaction. At ragging the "Gloom," Dutch is a pastmaster, and he can lead out that famous long-horned animal with more ease than most of us can roll a Bull skag. Although he borrows a sword belt to wear on hop nights, he is not a heavy fusser, nor does he center his attentions on any particular one. There must be some underlying mystery, which time alone will clear up, and we wish him luck. Although the past year has seen him with only a buzzard in place of his three stripes of Plebe Summer, that is no indication that Dutch's graduation will not add to the Navy list a capable, efficient officer. "Bow-wow, I'm a dog, I'm a Newfoundland dog, I'm a life- saver, don't chain me." liilllflllg' 220 ilnbn ftfrnest Beinhutg, Et. Qilassin Eating Washington, District of Columbia ia HCYH HTed,, Buzzardg Baseball Numerals. EDDY is a cute little devil but the last is far more appropriate than the first, for ever since his early days here Teddy has been getting into trouble at pretty regular intervals, but he has, however, managed to get out of trouble at equally regular intervals, and it is a safe bet that he will take out his clearance papers with the rest of us. Lack of size is one of the things-in fact the only thing-that kept Ted from doing more in athletics. But he has done enough for the average man and he possesses plenty of spunk. Teddy isn't brilliant, he's too irres onsible to be considered as one of the more capable men in the Class, but he's got his nerve with him, and that alone should pull him through many a situation. Teddy came here hand in hand with Dutch. The two lads had seen army life at St. john's, and they decided to try Navy life at the Academy. They have--they have survived the Academy and it in its turn has survived them. Teddy with his dark eyes and olive complexion could not be else than a fusser. He fusses spasmodically, without rhyme or reason-but there's a method in some of his madness- . . who the method is will probably come out later. The cruises have been the joys of Ted's existence. He has made some grand liberties. The zoo in Antwerp, Paris, Londong Ted's been there-and gone. His experiences would make a very clever tale in the hands of the rankest amateur, but when Ted acts as his own historian--light your pipe and gang closer. Teddy was made to enjoy life-that is, while he is young --but some day he'll grow up and his abilities, which in here were at times obscured by his indifference to mere matters such as regulations, etc., will come to the surface, and Ted will then get the confidence that his abilities deserve. 221 ' john Qummeriielh Roberts, gr. Danville, Kentucky ix: uJ'ohnn uRobb0n Buzzard. HE following conclusions are, in the most part, based upon strong deductive reasoning. CSuccessive approximations were used: the exponents of Sciacci and the profound Dr. Moon were neglected on account of the entropy of the syllogistic parallax.J The material for these remarks must of necessity be deduced rather than complied, because the victim, Robbo, is by nature shy and modest. He shrinks like a tulip from the glare of publicity and his voice is never raised in autobiography. The city of Danville is not to be found on the Admiralty charts, but we know that it lies in the blue ridges of Kaintuckee, where the licker is white and everybody packs a gun. The average term of life is brief, so brief that the Navy Mutual Aid would be a ten to one shot. You would therefore expect Robbo to be a raging pirate, but he is not. You would look for a man who, like the awful Major, finds relaxation only in death and disaster. 'But Robbo is not thus. On the other hand he is a quiet youth who minds his own business and avoids the necessity of strife. He is not a man to be trified with, however, and his demeanor does not invite unneutral acts. Four years ago Robbo pitched camp with that great Teutonic intellect, the incomparable Brodie. From that day Robbo has been subjected to a constant fire of argument, disputation, and monologue seeking to demonstrate every proposition from "Why is a bacon" to "What is the habitat of the golf?" No man of ordinary parts could stand the racket. The fact that Robbo is still sane and well balanced is a great tribute to the rugged fiber of the man. Robbo is very unselflsh: a man who can inconvenience himself for others without suffering mortal pain, Robbo makes a good bad- weather friend. 222 Qlhert Qiirnest Qcbraher Batesville, Indiana ' "Brodie" "Dutchman" Hustlers CID, Soccer Squad C355 Soccer Numerals. MORE opportune place he could not have chosen to introduce himself. It was over in Old Antwerp, the city of antiquity, the city of hospitality. When darkness drew her blanket over our good ship and the jostling crowd grew quiet, when the tired ones laid down to dream of the wonders of a foreign land, it was the old Dutchman's voice that bellowed out at every smothered whisper, "Pipe down, you'se Brodies!" The die was cast. The Scheldt was crossed. He became the "Brodie." The cruise passed. Youngster leave was over. The "Brodie" stepped forth in-all his power. He struck out in every direction. His ambition knew no bounds. Numerals were his for the asking. He closed the year with slashing victory, for the erstwhile Hoosier was now a lion in the ballroom. As a long distance talker he knows no superior. He is yet unconquered, either in Smoke Hall or in the section room as the lanzador del toro. His social and intellectual poise have carried him over the rough way to a position of ease from which he scornfully looks down upon the criticisms of even the savviest profs. His ideas are original, his ways methodical, even to the keeping of a diary. His grasp of details is concise. He can tell you anything, from the tonnage of the "Constitution" to the idiosyncrasies of the present duty officer. The closing scene portrays this man in another light. He thirsts for knowledge. Every day and every experience adds something to his store. And still his ambition grows. His heart gets bigger. Many an hour is made gay by his Dutch wit. "Brodie" is a true friend. His honest Prussian pride is his worst fault. He has an unlimited capacity for work, and when the coal barges pull up alongside of his ship he will be the first to mount the pile with ready shovel and- "Let's go." 223 Bennie iieu Ryan A Tucson, Arizona "Denny" "Dennis" Buzzard. ENNY" comes from the land of the Gila monster and alkaline water, but his western manner has been much battered and broken in this, the effete East. His breezy air so captivated the upper classmen Plebe Year that he was present at all of their entertainments until his patron saint, Bingo Wilson, took him under his kindly care. It is to that benign influence that Denny owes his ultimate success, for Bingo brought him up in the ways of the Service. Denny has been the most engaged and' at present writing is the least married man of the class. An unfortunate failing for the company of the unfair sect has made his hair turn, his disposition flighty, and his bank account slim in four harrowing years. He is still at large, however, and shows signs of recovering some of his lost poise. Dennis is one of our most essentially "un-dissy" chaps we know, to borrow slang from our gray-clad brothers. He has been taking Cushingesque chances ever since his famous visit Cunofficialj to Baltimore on the night before graduation Plebe Year. That brilliant start on a career of crime was a fitting opening for a long line of evil deeds that will live long in the annals of the Furious Fourth. He doesn't look it, nor does he boast it, but there are those who know that it is meat and drink for him. Yet for all of that, he can, when the occasion and the authorities demand it, settle down to a fine W imitation of hard work. ' He is a talented draftsman and a skillful artist, and many a hop card has been decorated with his graceful printing, for Denny loves to do it nicely, and his friends know it. And that is typical of the spalpeen, for he is a true Irishman in generosity and sacrifice. The ungrudging air with which he undertakes the most unreasonable favors for a friend mark him as a loyal son of Erin's Isle. The matter of athletics must always be dragged into these brief notes, and Denny's record is a promise unfulfilled. He is a crack shot, but doesn't see the benefit of goind blind for an RNT. He wrestles with a wiry slipperyness that will land him honorable men- f tion anywhere. But best of all, he is a Torero unexcelled, for long f association with the Greasers has taught him the value of a strong and steady tongue. 224 Qlfreh In Buy batnper ' Springfield, Illinois I. HAH!! Cfcherubff Hcupidii Buzzard. HE Baron Munchausen of the Academy" is a title no one would dare dispute after having heard one or more of cherub's harrowing yarns. His treatise, "Adventure-at Home and Abroad," published Second Class Year, put all others to shame. He never made a liberty without discovering a new sensation. But it takes a crowd of boon com- panions and a good skag to draw him into a story, though he never tires of narrating how he was locked in the ice box in Loder's Cafe during the race riots in Springfield, or his chase of Diana at the Regina in Rome. Because of too frequent visits to the hospital he has often been on the ragged edge of nowhere. The facility with which he pulls himself out of tight places shows that class standing is not always a criterion of brains. For Cupid has brains which will carry him through any field of endeavor that he may undertakeg he says that it will be the Army. So far Pleasure claims him-and in pursuit of that object his adventures have been numerous and varied. In any Rhino gathering his joy knows no bounds. Authority, discipline, studies, and administration follow one another to the discard. His ready wit and silver tongue then sketch a Utopian home on the site of the former mad house. Next to Oratory and repartee Cupid is a rough-house artist of the best sort. Plebe Year he went to the hospital for two months after a short affray. The attractions proved so great that half of each succeeding year finds him back again. . Besides being a congenial and enjoyable man to know, Sawyer is the best kind of a friend. He will share his last cent with you, or spend yours and promptly forget all about both. A loyal companion, his ever present good nature surmounts all obstacles, and carries him through every difficulty.

HE little round-faced Irishman has often slipped the leash of his llama when his resem- blance to a Skywegian has been commented upon, but he insists that if his name is Irish, at least half' of him must be directly descended from the original inhabitants of the Emerald Isle. He has smiled his way through four years of Academy life, taking his fun as it was thrust upon him by the roistering members of the Compagnie Septieme, who early spotted him for the good-humored butt of all the unoriginal practical jokes their imagi- nations could conceive. From cruise data, collected and compiled by competent authority, we deduce the conclusion that Kelly will be one of those "chronics" who get shore duty and sea pay on board a receiving or training shipg but if Tommy Thompson has nerve enough to tackle service afloat, perhaps our towheaded Hibernian may line his tummy with zincs and take a try at the briny. Under Unc's influence Kelly's good humor has developed into a sense of humor, so that he has been able to appreciate jokes on others as well as those on himself. Anyone who has ever seen him smile, when his eyes go 'way out of sight, their absence accounted for by a multitude of crow's feet, and his nose wrinkles like a rabbit. that smells clover, would never take him for a villain. He isn't, although he may have caused a brief Hutter of the hearts of several fair damsels by unconscious use of that same quizzical squint. Kelly was the mainstay of our Plebe Class football team at i center, but being too light to expect to make the Varsity in that , position, he practiced a few running starts and came out for end. He worked hard and consistently, but the Hustlers receive no reward beyond the verbal thanks and commendation of the coaches and an occasional kind thought from the Regiment. No matter how many bigger men walk on him, so long as his facial muscles are not paralyzed, his grin comes out of a scrim- mage as wide as ever. "Aw-w, rotten! Mr. Kelly, you get out there and try it." 226 Zulius math bimms Laurel, Mississippi "Simes" "Uncle" "Julius" "Ward" "Mother" One Stripe: Clean Sleeveg Masqueraders GJ. E'S just the funniest man." Yes-that's Simms. Early in Plebe Summer he gained renown as the best of our story tellers. And Uncle has improved with age. Always he has a new story or an old one made over to suit his inimitable style. But he doesn't really need a story. All he has to do is to talk and illustrate his conversation with suitable gestures. b. And then his escapades. While he himself never mentions them, they always get noised a out. "Say, did you hear this one on Simms?" Have Tommy tell you about "Simms in Antwerp." On last New Year's Uncle took a little trip to Baltimore and when he got back the authorities were so glad to see him that they insisted on his being "at home" for four months. Besides that, he was given, in place of his one stripe, three stripes Qdiagonall. Simms took up fussing Youngster Year. He made a hit instantaneously. No one could resist that wonderful way of his. If Simms is present the party is a success. ' Simms doesn't stand high because, in place of sticking to those books written especially for the use of the midshipmen, he goes about it in a less discriminating way, reading all he can. He manages to go through the insides of more magazines than any other two men. Plebe Year, Uncle took a try at football and crew, but since then he has devoted himself exclusively to that great sport-Mexican athletics. Uncle made his First Class Cruise aboard the U. S. S. Bancroft Hall as a member of Company A where he saw Doyle's laws put into practice. To meet Simms is to become interested in him. Once you know him, you'll never forget him. He won't forget you either, and you'll have a friend who is a friend. 227 ilaurance Jfrpz baifurh Boston, Massachusetts l K nsapphon Star C215 Regimental Ordnance Officer, Soccer Numerals C4, 3, 25. EREWITH we present the one and only. Sappho was not made for this world. He must have been born in a daze-of this we cannot speak with a certitude, not having had the pleasure of his intimacy--but this we do know-ever since he entered the Academy he has lived in a perpetual haze of preoccupied alertness. He has an air of utter detachment, mixed, to further the description of this human antithesis, with an absolute knowledge of the "concrete details" of each and every occasion. The big change came during Youngster Cruise. To recapitulate, Plebe Year Sappho had not distinguished himself unduly in the line of scholastic endeavors, and, although his easy sur- mounting of all problems presented by the gang of 5th Company terrors QNuf-Cedj, had melted even that hard aggregation, still the Severn had not changed its quiet muddy habits at sight of him. Youngster Cruise, however, he unwittingly initiated Art Smith's "Descent of Man" and changed the potential energy due to reposing in a hammock to an equal amount of kinetic energy by falling to the deck. From that time his attitude towards life was completely reversed. He couldn't help starring if he had wanted to. Celestial lights simply radiate from him, and if there is some subject which he is not a greater authority than the inventor, discoverer, or whoever the High Mogul would be for the one case under consideration, we have yet to locate it! With regard to congeniality, Sappho is right there. Whenever .tb N A 1 you see a small mob gathered in the murky dimness of Smoke Hall, ' after the vacuum cleaner has done its best, you will find Sappho gesticulating like his roommate and sputtering like a Gnome engine. This is characteristic of the animal. He speaks with one velocity of a Springfield rifle, but he thinks so much faster that his brain over- leaps his tongue, and the resulting statement although doubtless a gem of logical co-ordination, sounds like a gatling gun in distress. Sappho's deepness of concentration has made him the last man to every formation since his entrance to this life of luxury and ease. He will probably dispute this statement, but it's so. It does a man a world of good to know Sappho. His ability to dilferentiate between what's right and what's wrong has kept him a clean, strong character, and you may bank on it-what he does is right. . 1 , ' 228 ilaumhrrt william Ziruli Fall River Massachusetts U OPI!

He is gesticulating ardently to five young Italian beauties who accompany him and gaze at him with loving eyes. What is he telling them? Is it about dear old Boston? Or his famous brass quartette? Nog on knowing him better it is a safe wager to say that he is telling his love to all five at once. With his big heart and his habitual good humor, Tony has a craving for sweet Italian love and spaghetti London Paris, Antwerp and Frisco each holds a precious memory for him which he alone can fully relate Qgesticulatej. A sad thing happened his First Class Year. Tony became so famous that his right arm was loaded down with the insignia of his many honors. The doctors, however say that the list he gained thereby will not be permanent. He has led us to the soccer championship he has saved many a wooden man in Dago, and in some way or another has done us all a good turn Did you ever see him play soccer? The ball just bounces off his head like a billiard ball from acushion and Tony himself bounces along the ground in the same manner. No one in the Academy has massed together such a mass of nick- names as the Wop. He has well gained the leadership of the Man- dolin Club, the Bugle Corps, and that phantom orchestra that used to haunt us every Sunday afternoon. The way he led his orchestra at the Xmas carnival would make Sousa himself green with envy. He thinks music, he talks music Cmanuallyj and he plays any instrument you want him to. Tony and his mandolin will soothe anyone's sorrows, while his weird tales will drive away the worst case of rhino. When you see him in the bright future he will again tell you of his experiences at the Sala Umberto and play you away into dream- land on that wonderful mandolin of his. 229 OOB is from the wild and woolly West, but you couldn't tell it by looking at him He tries at times to pass out,some weird tales about the night-shirt parades the Indians have up and down Larimer St. in Denver every Saturday night, but everyone is wise to him now Richard's battle with the Academic Board has been a draw so far with the depart ments giving up a few trenches each year.

It was a hard fight but finally successful After his first introduction to the reg. book they have been sworn enemies and in his room said book always rcposes under the table.

Several times we have thought that some girl had him cornered, but now it seems that you never can tell. He will be a good addition to any mess and will get along in the Service. As a Plebe Boob was a whole show by himself. Since then he has been hard on Plebes and has invented several new modes of tor- ture. His efforts in this line have been fruitless, however, when "Plebes is no longer Plebes." He knows how to make a good liberty and doesn't mind letting his friends in on his good times.

ALTER'S life at the Academy can be divided into three distinct periods. When he came to us he was an earnest, hard working lad from Waterwagon High School and the brightest boy in town. All went well the first year, which he finished by stand- ing sixteen in the Class against the Academic Department. Youngster Cruise he worked so hard that the authorities decided to give him an additional week of leave. The second great period of his life started when he went to the hospital with hook worm, which he got from wrestling. There he met Miss Nicotine, and, in general, assumed the role of a man-about-town. We couldn't hold him down at all. He, Gyp, and Bunny saw Europe on Second Class Cruise in good old Navy style, and then started on leave with a big bang. "Make mine a white pop," said he at the Reimert Cafe in Baltimore on the first day of leave. Upon his return the third great period of his life started. He began to get frequent letters from Washing- ton, all in the same handwriting. No longer did Walter trust to luck at hopsg he always had his semi-monthly week ends planned to the cut-and-dried stage. Crum- my blue service and unbrushed hair were shelved during those periods. Joe Lawson coached him up on the fine points of the game when he went on Christmas leave with his silk hat. Such a re- markable change is bound to lead to Webb? leaving the Bachelors' Club when he ceases to be an embryo ofiicer. However, Walter is the most optimistic and one of the best- hearted men in the Class. He has parted with his last Fatima time and time again with never a word of protest.. Those who will be shipmates with him in the days to come will find themselves with the best of pals and a cool-headed ofiicer, chuck full of common sense. "Yes, I'm going home for Christmas.

F the national policy of "watchful waiting" has not worked out to suit the majority, the same plan of attack when tried by Sumners has had a far different result. His transition from Plebe Summer to the present time is a striking example of what four years in the Academy :ill do, his first two years being spent in a quiet observation of all that went on around im. Second Class Year, denizens of the fourth deck found a newcomer. It was Sumners, but it required several months to make us realize that he was not the same one we knew as a Youngster and a Plebe. His old-time habits were left behind when he quitted London, where his leave had been spent at the Y. M. C. A. No one has ever discovered what brand of social dope he uses, but that it is effective is proved by "that cute Mr. Sumners" which announces another conquest on his part. The attractions of the California Building were so strong First Class Cruise that he always has to change the sub- ject whenever any one asks about San Francisco. Like all other things his efforts along athletic lines have been unostentatious. Plebe baseball found in him a loyal adherent, as his numerals will testify. Neither wooden, nor savvy, he believes in working consistently for four months rather than frantically for one. As a consequence he has always had a strong bridge for the periodical rivers. "Still waters run deep." This is no exception in Sumners. You will find nothing superficial in his makeup, no matter from what angle you approach him. Once the barriers of his reserve are down, you will know him for a man who can be depended upon, who will not give up until he has accomplished what he sets out to do and who will not set out to accomplish anything until certain it is worthy to be tried.

He is as adept at all of the pranks and follies of our modern women as Julien Eltinge him- self, and when Buster leaves this old outfit it will take the Masqueraders a long, long time to find someone nearly as good to fill his little CPD pumps. Despite the hard fight he has had to make to stay with us, he has achieved fame not only as an impersonator of women, but also as a wrestler, where he has done not a little to help gain the team the fame it has won. ' ' One might well conclude that those big brown eyes have broken some woman's heart, and if they haven't-Cthis to the ladiesj--stand from under! Tin ears have proved a menace to Van, but he says that the fireside at home is good enough for him and he isn't bothering much. Throughout his career as a midshipman he has displayed good old Navy pluck and spirit, and when a man has to make a 3.50 in a Plebe math exam and besides is unsat in two other subjects, it takes that spirit to pull him through. Pass along the fourth deck some time-if you smell oranges, just follow your nose and you will come upon Buster sitting on the edge of his bed with his head hidden behind a huge grape-fruit. That is just a small sample of the bounteous offering which his sunny home State sends to him weekly. When he gets a box he will invite everybody Cincluding Plebesl to come around and share it with him. Gorham 8Z Co. found Van a ready customer Second Class Year, and although we do not know which one of the seven she is, we hope the outcome will be for the best. He is satisfied that everything will come out all right and so are we, and in the happy future you can always imagine Buster sitting on the quarterdeck dreaming of the orange groves of Florida and the girl he left behind. 233 Buy Qllehelanh Qtnink Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania HRyH llswibnikfl Uspinxn Buzzard, Lacrosse Numerals, Soccer Numerals. OOT! Toot! The daily milk train blew her whistle shrilly as she drew near the station at Stroudsburg, and the restless murmurs of the inhabitants gathered on the platform turned into a hum of expectation. As the train pulled slowly into their midst a stalwart, erect figure with a smiling countenance jumped off, handing his suitcase Cwell covered with hotel postersj to a waiting boy. A cheer arose from the excited crowd, for had not the prodigal son of Stroudsburg come home for his annual visit? As the band outside played the local version of the Star Spangled Banner, our hero made a graceful bow Ca la Belll and stepped into the waiting Dayton. That is a sample of the home-coming Spinx receives each year. His smile you will never forget. Stretching from ear to ear, it is inclined to be a permanent fixture, but he can also weep, as was shown by his lachrymonious joy when we beat the Army Plebe Year. There is still another side to him. Imagine a dark, cold hop night. From out of the darkness of Lover's Lane strolls an absorbed couple, oblivious A t 1 to their surroundings. They talk in low voices as they make their way reluctantly to the gymnasium. One of them is Spinx. Never has he been known to miss an opportunity to fuss. But now it is rumored that he has settled down to an affair of rather serious nature. Roy spends most of his time going the rounds of the deck in search of eats, but if he is unsuccessful in that line he tries to see how many goats he can lead out, and is always sure to find Pat T. T. a ready victim. He has a tin ear and doesn't expect to stay with us long, but whatever he does, we know that he will be successful. Mean- time we hope that his smile will never wane in the future, but will remain always as bright as it has been in the past. 2234 iknhert Slnbn walker Washington, District of Columbia "Lo1lops" "La-la" "Bobby" H Buzzard. ' ID you ask who that tall, handsome miclshipman over there was? Why, that is Lollops Walker. You have surely seen him before. At any hop you can see him dancing gracefully about with some pretty representative of Washington in his arms. Life here would be dull for Bobby if it were not for the hops, for he is an advanced scholar of the terpsichorean art. But alas! he left the ranks of the happy-go-lucky crowd at the beginning of his First Class Year and a great change came over him, for, what was once a care-free fusser became a pensive dreamer. Any Saturday will show you the subject of his dreams and after one look you will agree with us that he is to be congratulated. He certainly likes the name of Walker. I wonder why? His sworn enemy is Dago Cactively represented by the spies of the Dago Departmentj. For four years he has gone forth semi-annually and conquered. He has had other troubles also, but, however, most of them graduated last year. Bobby knows the combination of the all-night cir- cuit and on exam nights Second Class Year he used to hold a study parlor in his room after taps. His first wife, jack Hinton, called him Willie Westinghouse, Jr., because when the "discipline depart- ment" closed down on the Second Class of the Twelfth Company, Lollops rigged up a fan that made such a tendency that it blew the skags out of our mouths. He is bound to make good wherever he goes, as he has a knack of savvying machinery and things mechanical, besides possessing a handy pal in his "slip stick." We do not know the outcome of his recent inquiries at the various jewelry stores except that he can tell you all about solitaires. The question now is, will he or will he not?

ALLY first came into prominence among the embryo-admirals produced by the season of Nineteen-Twelve, when he held the sluggers of the Fourth Division to no hits and fewer runs in the baseball series of Plebe Summer. The inter-company com- petition-for a Saturday's liberty-during the same early period of our course, found his all-around ability, as a yachtsman, swimmer, and track-man, a valuable asset to the Third Division. If a talent for getting what he wants be considered an asset, Dick ought to capitalize himself and issue stock. It is certain that there is no form of graft known to the Regiment, whether it be a friend to exchange duties, or liberty both of two days in port, which he has not turned to advantage. But Wally can deliver the goods on all occasions, and his efficiency marks are proof of his thorough performance of duty. He is probably the best boat officer in the Class. An actual watch as O. O. D. is the only thing which is known to have prevented his making a boat trip during the entire month the Missouri lay off Crabtown. Vail was the mainstay in the backfield of our Plebe football team, - and he has since been a valuable member of the Varsity squad. A cham- pionship tablet in the Gym attests his ability as a swimmer-he can swim the hundred faster than most of us can run it. He plays baseball for his own entertainment and boxes for the entertainment of others. Dick blossomed out Youngster Year with' the evident intention of becoming an "Aide," but unfortunately has not since been able to continue his training. He can tell you the name of the first girl to wear a 1916 Class ring, though he has never expressed an opinion on matrimony. However, it is whispered that when one of the best dancers in the Class ceases to drag regularly-"there's a reason." It argues well for his future happiness that he and Possum have kept house in peace and content for four years. Vail does his duty and does it well. We have profited by his acquaintance and we wish him luck. 236 Bitbarh QEIIstnnrtiJ Webb Minden, Louisiana "Possum" "Webber" "El1sberg" Buzzard, Football Numerals C255 Baseball Numerals CBD. LAZY, good-natured fellow who finds a world of amusement in a comfortable radiator seat and a magazine or a story by one of the bunch. He has long had a liking for gentle idleness, which is one reason for his being the oldest member of the cross-country squad. Another reason might well be his appetite, for, after having roomed with Wop Vail for four years, who is continually receiving bonbons and other sweets from-well, we needn't say whom-he has acquired the wild habit of eating at all times. Consequently he welcomes those times when Vail goes in training and turns over the offerings for his consumption. He possesses a peculiar taste for the nice, clear, fresh water of the Tank, and has almost as hard a time mastering the art of swimming as have Ginder and Braine. Possum is the sort of fellow you know pretty well and like accordingly about ten minutes after you've met him. He has made friends, good friends, in every port we've visited. In Paris he found a friend who made the trip worth while, in London he collected enough visiting cards, drinks and meals to keep him alive during those days of financial stress which all of us encountered. He and Holcombe found particularly clever friends in Cadiz, and it is rumored that half his meals in Frisco were grafted. "Just a little personality" goes a long way. Steady visits along Porter Row caused him to lose all fear of the juice Department and to gain a supply of girls to drag to the hops. In brief, Webb is a friend who will stick to you through thick and thin, and is a mighty good man to tie to. He may not be possessed of a world of wisdom or a superfluity of brains, but he has his share, and adding to this, sincerity in his actions, you have a man worth while. . 237 Eames Kepler Bahia Tionesta, Pennsylvania "Jake" "Polonius" Buzzard. AKE has carried himself through four hard years as a midshipman because of one predomi- nant quality-once started, he will not give up. Plebe Year all of us prepared to wish him good luck in another sphere-but not Jake. He drove through the semi-anns on the sunny side of the gate and has repeated the experience twice a year since then. He denounces the Navy, but is determined to graduate because he entered with that purpose. Jake achieved fame Second Class Year by carefully explaining how the L. S. T. might be found by looking up the star's right ascension in the World's Almanac. A month later he fol- lowed this by winding the chronometer backwards during First Class cruise. ' Neither a fusser nor a red mike, most of his Saturday nights are given over to a good book. Generous to a fault, he will do anything for a friend, from financial assistance to hop night duty. And there are few hops when Jake cannot be found cheerfully sitting at the M. C.'s desk, because, as he says, "I don't enjoy dancing." In duty, as in everything else, Davis employs the same heartiness of purpose and invariably performs more than he has to. But to attempt a bluff with him is another matter. Q .. '73 Like most people of equable manner, he has his limits, and l once these are reached he cannot be swerved or persuaded. Approach him as a friend and you will obtain anything, but attempt pressure and you'll End that you have picked a Tartar.

Ye 3. gods, what a change from the day before-a small box-like ' compartment, enclosed by four bare neutral-tinted walls and lighted by a solitary window, there was nothing that sug- gested Louis Quatorze, Quinze, or up. The influence of the Spartan era manifested itself in the interior decoration. An iron bedstead, a huge cum- as as bersome locker, an efficient- assuming from Chapel looking chair and table. together with an enameled white washstand. completed the toute ensemble. For a while joe sat and mused. His mind wandered-he thought of the past and he ruminated into the future. Vivid tales read in pre-entrance days of life at the Academy and ,in the Service, afforded ample material for his mental flight. He saw his four years at the Academy-crowned with honors-athletic, scholastic and social, he saw himself graduated at the head of his class and then his thoughts abruptly came back to earth with the realization that his gear was yet to be stowed, and he abandoned the realms of fancy for those of fact and, guided by the am- biguous intricacies of the "Blue Book," he began to stow his locker. October first-the gathering of the clans-from all points of the compass they flocked to the Academy. For a day the corridors of Bancroft Hall were filled with rhino-looking "cits." Ill at ease in his spotless blues, Joe marched down the corridor with sidelong glances of envy at the well-worn suits adorned with glittering stripes. Strange tales fed to the credulous Plebes by the fun- loving bilgers straightened out the last 1 few kinks in Joes spine and fingers. ' The first formation-that strange feeling-no longer the carefree Plebe of the summer days-now it was "Mr. Gish, Sir. " of the rear rank. That night joe fled from the mess hall to his room, jumped into his works and when the gong clanged at 7.30, opened his math book and started in. The Year was on! joe, like all Plebes-past-present -fthenb-but not future, received his share of attention. He learned the H,,,, Dlys usual table stunts and his cleverness as 245 S f -. , .. . .

But it soon began to be more or less a matter of course, and Joe arrived at the point where he craved attention. I-Ie got it. On to Philly! Temporarily a rear admiral, Joe marched on Franklin Field to "Anchors Aweighn-he saw the gray coats and a thrill went through him. I-Ie heard the long "Armay," and his fists clinched-he saw the blue The Old Navy team come trotting out from the locker room and his soul went into his voice as he gave his best in the 4-N yell for the team. That game-the irresistibleArmy rush- down the field went the gray line-on and on-and then it stopped. Keyes fell back for a field goal-and missed . . . and then all changed. The final quarter. Over- coat unbuttoned, Joe shaded his eyes as Brown flicked an imaginary blade of grass from his toe. Then a pause-the ball was snapped back-Brown stepped forward and the ball sailed in a low arc toward the goal posts. The field judge threw up his hands and a "3" appeared underneath the "Navy" on the score- board-the sun danced around, the sky rocked wide open, the universe turned topsy-turvy-and when joe came to earth he was passionately kissing his three striper and vowing eternal Hdelity to the Navy--damn it, you can't beat it---. Spring, the season of promise--the first faint glimmering of freedom. The outdoor sports broke. up the stretches and week after week passed by. One day after dinner ,Joe walked down to the sea wall and took a look at the lllinois lying in midstream. A feeling of joy-a prophetic precursor of the days to come went through Joe. He saw Europe beckoning in the distance and then his eye fell on his unstriped sleeve and the vision vanished. 40 go zo io 3 z i. 1 The Day-Graduation! the last diploma- and then the wild rush to Lovers Lane-the snake dance-the wild exuberance of the liberated serf. The june Ball-his first social effort . . . The morning after--the final packing-membarkation. As the loaded launches pulled out into the stream, joe glanced at the llly looming up as they ap- proached-then back at the gray walls of Bancroft-the shiny dome of the Chapel-- the Yard. "Thank God, that's over," he said, "but yet, it's worth if' 'Tlint no mo' Plebeal 246 1-'.-'riff-':?-ii mf: :-If-1-:.. fl f:g'!,-'.'ir:f':S:.-:g.7.'g 'g-.-,,:-.'-..-,:fj:f.:L.

He is about the ratiest bird I've ever laid eyes upon! The Navy has certainly gone to the Dogs." joe's words were a true indication of his feelings this fine September morn- 'l ing-the last hours of leave-as he tl, strolled through the streets of i P 'qilg Annapolis from the Short Line Station on his way to prison once more. Any om Aftemoou September leave was nearly overg another hour would find him in uniformg once again a midshipman. But, oh, what a different uniform-what a different midshipman! That gold stripe-how it glitteredg aYoungster-truly he had reached his zenith. Taking his place in the long line of returned convicts, joe signed his return from leave- t'was overg but memories- ah, they would never leave him! He donned his uniform --yes, there was the stripe- was there anything ever so beautiful-how those "poor Plebesu must envy him. I-lad he been able to pay less atten- 'rho Party woo Rough tion to that bit of gold lace, and more to the task of stowing his locker, evening would not have found him still at the task. Wearily he picked up a book-a new book-Calculus-could he-would he -ever get through that maze of fig- ures. "The increment of the function 'x' is, as we may readily see from the derivation, etc." he readg "That first hop is two weeks off, but if I write to Her four times a day. etc.." he thought. In despair he gave it up. . - - . It had been a strenuous day, a mo- Red som mentous dayg he'd turn in and dream. 248 A Youngster-that gold stripe . -Her last smile. "Say, Dick," he called drowsily, "Aren't those Plebes the ratiest bunch you've ever seen? The Navy has gone to the Dogs." The two weeks dragged drearily by, embittered, a complete lack of understand- ing of Calcg and a rapidly decreasing rate of correspond- ence. The Hrst hop arrived- also another girl. Fluently he explained the significance of that stripe: its responsibilitiesg its importance 5 the emptiness of First Class and Second Class yearsg the magnitude of that of Youngster. The hop was a successg "She" was a successg the Girl at home-his Leave-Girl -was forgotten. joe had truly become a Youngster. Came the Army-Navy Came-a day of disappointment-a day when the bottom fell out of everything, and no liberty to recover in. Christmas followed soong for two days he rated Second Class. Perhaps there was something to look forward to, after all. The Semi-Anns began to loom up, in their monstrosity, on the horizon, and the two diagonal stripes seemed more alluring than ever. He emerged, battered, scarred, but victoriousg he'd live to drag that "queen" Cwhat-was-her-name D yet. Spring! Oh, why work? Why do anything but dream? Birds twittered, trees were budding, he was young-a Youngsterg and, as ever, he was in love. Surely there was joy in living! If he only did not have that blooming Skinny to bone!

What would Catherine say? Farewell to the hops, good-by to everything worth while. Slowly the days of his imprison- ment dragged by, each afternoon brought greater agony, each hop a fresh wound to his heart. I-Ielen was certainly fine in writing to him so often. one of the Om Comps There was a girl whom he had never truly appreciated. Fiercely he "rhin- ocd"-in the First place the Naval Academy had been founded on the wrong basisg secondly, it was being run on the wrong basis, and thirdly, it would continue to be run on the wrong basis so long as the A present Authorities continued in office. A deeper consideration--the whole world was on the bum-and so it ran. And one day he was free again. A hop was coming-Edith would soon be here. Presumably he bade Mary a fond farewell after the Army-Navy I-lop. Lovingly he welcomed Susan the next day-June week had arrived. The Naval Academy was certainly the Finest place on earth! And that girl that So-and-So was dragging was Ch,,m,,i.,,,,1 certainly some Queen-he'd hunt -her up next year. Next Year! A Second Classman! Suddenly his shoulders began to droop under the thoughts of the new and important responsibilities which were to be his. His stripe he scarcely no- ticed, it was not worth while: a mere nothing soon to be turned over to the plebes. Graduation! A Second Classman! The june Ball! How pretty julia had appeared in the moonlight! june Week was over. Almost tearfully he bade Margaret Q farewell and embarked upon his mo, Second Class Cruise. 250 -- -ig, Xxx 5 1 'Em-QQf'3 H sfigff S ivlk fff' ,5n'7"' 06 --a...-::::-- - .. ' .- .- I ' .

He fell back among the pillows and mused -"Back to the old grind- back to the damned old books and drills-but then the old gang-the games-the Yard" -a sudden desire to get back thrilled him-"l guess I'll get up," he said. That night, gaily humming ' the waltz from the show, joe strolled into the Pennsylvania Station, boarded the train and turned in. Suddenly a well-known voice was heard, and then another. From all parts of the car came greetings, wit Ccorn- field and otherwisej floated on the air. "lt's the gang, all right," said joe, "funny that they should hit this car", and sticking his head out of the cur- tains and assuming his idea of a traveling salesman's voice, he roared out, "Won't you young idiots turn in and give me a chance to get some sleep?" The crowd looked up and broke out with a yell. joe was dragged from his berth and became the center of a real party .... until, aware of the fact that they would have a whole year to spin their leave yarns, the mob turned in and slept while the train rolled southward. joe walked in the Main Gate about 1o.3o the next morning, remarked casually that it was, apparently, the same old place, sauntered over to Bancroft-found that he was the proud co-partner in a Second Class Suite, with bath-got into his service, fitting tightly around his middle. looked proudly at the two stripes on each arm and strolled around to see the gang. Later he drew a few of the "specially prepared" volumes and went through the usual First day routine with a very blase air--such an air, indeed, as becomes a Second Class- man on such occasions. It was hard to start boning, but somehow he managed.

He'd smell the old pipe fondly- gaze at the interior accumulation and remark to his wife for the nth time, "Y' know, I was just getting the old stove broken in." Whereupon his wife, with the patience born of long suffering, would reply, "Put it away, joey, you're in the Navy now." l-lop liberty was a spur to joe's social ambitions. l-lefussed-but with S. - more discrimination-very rarely did Domootio Economy he drag blindly and then only on solemn oath. He acquired a reserve, a disdain for femmes, but he was always on hand when they gave out hop cards. The Army game quickly came and went, and Joe filed out of Franklin Field mumbling, "Next year-Cod-next year, we'll get them and get them cold." Christmas followed-the First Class went away for three glorious days and Joe, conscious of an nth P.O.'s dignity, slept soundly until eight bells. "Esa es la vida," he said: "when l'm a First Classman this will be my regular stunt." And the semi-anns came and went. Finished with Math and English Gish already felt the effects of superior intellect and evinced interest in technical arti- cles-the "Institute" and the "Scientific American," but with the approach of spring his serious ambitions fled and lighter fiction constituted his mental diet. With the advent of Nav, Ordnance, and a real juice book the Service loomed closer-these were the things that he would deal with-out there. Often he would survey his well-filled bookcase and muse as to what his old-time chums at college would say if they could see him now.

The best ever! A perfect night! Somehow, despite the habitual cynicism of a First Classman, joe felt inclined to be sentimental. Queer, wasn't it? As he strolled in the Lower Gate at 1.30 A. M., hands in the pockets of his non-reg trou, his non-reg shoes noiseless on the pavement, Joe drew a deep breath and said to himself: "Truly, Joseph, this is the life .... but Sweet Spirits, that unpacked box of mine." The next morning, having closed his bulging box with the aid of the corridor boy, Joe rushed out to have a few last words with Her. The morning passed quickly-little was said, but much was meant. The last formation-and then to the dock. Weighed down by- laun- dry bags, his caps slung around hisneck. joe paused for a last look at his stripped and barren-looking room, "Goodbye, old barn," and shoved off.

Steamer and tow slowly drew away from the waving crowd on the dock, When one figure had faded into the mass, joe, with an assumed air of utter indifference, turned to the man next to him and said, "Got a skag?"

His health record reads "lvlalaria"- we believe that it was another malady -just as bad, but better known as" Fem- initisf' He was only three days late. However, he arrived with a spirit of accomplishment. The tender look of awe and admiration which the tales of his prowess had brought forth, as - he lied into those soft brown eyes, had made joe long for realities, and realities he must have. He aimed high. Being a First Classman, it was easy to work the manager of the Navy team for a suit. and joe presented himself the very first afternoon as a living sacrifice before the altar of that god we call ambition. His career was short but brilliant. The first scrimmage carried away two front teeth 3-the next evening, they carted him over to the hospital, where he was patched up. He stayed away a week and then tried it again-same result. They couldn't fool Joe-he would seek glory elsewhere. He took up Mexican Athletics and joined the club-to create a sensation he got engaged-things were going smoothly for joe. The Army-Navy game came with that terrible result. But little could that fease a man in love. He longed for Spring--june-and the fulfillment of promises. Christmas came-Leave-the first time he had tasted of this peculiar form of bliss. The preparation, the cits, and the general non-reg attitude of the whole place for a week before! joe went home, but she was not there. They had missed connections some- where, but he found comfort enough in propounding his theories on pre- paredness to ever-ready listeners. Gish woke up to the fact that compared to the ordinary run of folks he was educated-at least so it seemed to him. It ended, oh so abruptly, and in a trance joe found himself in a train with several hundred fellow-sufferers Em Wm, U, 256 The Music Lovers GJ ..,..,..i...,. .... . ...... ,...,,. ...... .,... ,Mm XA ,. ..,, . .... .

But joe was content to dream. He dreamed, and one cold morning in january he awoke. The semi-anns had passed--joe had a faint recollec- tion of that-but the marks had not yet been posted.

Why hadn't he boned? lf he was spared this time never would he go into another exam under a 3.4! But it passed, leaving him a mental and physical wreck, with re-exams in only two subjects-life was not so bad after all. The lovers began looking for good weather and green fields--but who can forecast Crabtown weather? Hops came and went, and each brought an aggravated bill from Chaney. Joe began getting nervous and peevish. He fought with the profs and with his roommate, and he landed on the ship for fighting with the Duty Officer about Smoke Hall privileges. Sure- ly the bitter cup was full and brimming over. joe felt that his disgrace must have been spread broadcast, because he never heard from her,' but many were the burning missives that went out from the Reina Mercedes. Then one day came the announcement of her mar- riage to a friend of the family. Awoman-hater is a passionate Romeo compared to what this blow made of joe. His favorite pastime be- came reading " Hamlet " and general philosophy on the fickleness of woman. 257 Schedule of Mliictionl . - , , ..-'FN P.-LM WYMFWW w ,Y W' 7 S' . W Nil- W ' ff U Y 3 fs gf . .

By the time joe had again taken up his palatial quarters in Bancroft Hall he was an easy victim of woman's wiles and designing classmates, but Lent came and overwhelmed this new- born activity. Rumors that there was to be no Mid-Lent hop gave rise to lengthy discussions at the table and in Smoke Hall on the evils of things in general. This soon passed away and for the sake of pastime Joe began 'rue Hang one writing scholarly editorials for imagin- ary journals--outlining just what was wrong with the present system of Naval training, and the fallacies in the country's present attitude on preparedness. The baseball season started sooner than he had expected, and he felt in duty bound to tear himself away from his meditations and to seek the sidelines of the diamond and pass comment on the team in general and the faults of individuals in particularg but rain and cold soon drove him and the team back indoors. Such energy as was joe's must find somewhere a field in which to operate. He became a movie fan, and many were the pleasant and tearful afternoons he spent in imaginary company with "Clara" and "Theda." But even First Class Year must end, and May came with its Flowers and green trees, when the band played, and the yard was full of robins and chickens. Surely this was a paradise for a lover. Why worry about exams and work, with June Week a short three weeks off? No, Joe wasn't dragging-he had fallen onto a better plan than that. He would flit from flower to flower, drinking of the sweets which must needs be neglected by those poor simps blessed with both family and girls. Joe began to muse upon the title of the next chapter of his life's history. Of the wonder- ful fleld about to be opened, to be conquered by that do- or-die spirit of his.

Little time was given us to contem- plate the wonders of the Path to Glory which opened before us. An ever watch- ful and solicitous Executive Department provided amusement for our waking hours with loving care. We learned which end of a gun went off, we paddled around in Standard Navy Cutters that rivaled the Ark in grace and made us envy the galley slave with his carefree life, and we partook 7 daily of that mysterious ritual known as the Swedish Dance, .b , until at the end of three long months we were, thanks to A X . "Col." Heintz and other immortals, more or less reclaimed - from the primitive. ' 9 By this time our fame had spread all the way to Baltimore. Then, of course, the Star Spangled Banner Celebration was grill? l all off till the people heard that we were coming up to grace nil the occasion in the Practice ships-and khaki. So we were 'wild 3 real "Sea-going Plebesf' As the Equinoctials were not yet all, I due we did not encounter much heavy weather en route. i We took the Dago Profs along, but unfortunately none of an pl' them fell overboard and the crew could not he hired to 272 I throw them over. The cruise wasn't conducted exactly along the lines of a "Cooks Tour," and we did not need any Baedekers to appreciate what we saw. 'limi-Eggs! ,Algae 'sais e 17" Al, Q fl 5 ' J - 'l ll ' J We had not formed any rosy visions of Academic Year, and the barometer registered no change when we drew half a library of books from the store. There was everything there from Edgar Allan Poe's "Practical Algebra and Some That Ain't" to Brown and Capron's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination." They did not stop at anything like five math books. No, Gentle Reader, they didn't even hesitate! lt was a practical experiment in "just which straw broke the camel's back." The planting of our first tree was an imposing ceremony, taking place in accordance with time-honored tradition, on the first Saturday after the 'Hrst Friday in October. The tree thrived and was counted a favorable augur. Our life in these dark days was, for the most part, "Bound in Shallows and ,,, W Agy, 1 in Miseriesf' with here and there a bright spot. uv-llbik, fr 'Hr' f -, Christmas saw the turning of 'the worm and Jff :A , many a Brutal Upperclassman had cause to T, 5 .. .. y 1 ,inf A Q regret that Day of Wrath.

Graduation Day soon followed and we emerged from the nameless oblivion of plebedom into the garish light of a Youngsters existence. Twenty-four hours after our Emancipation Proclamation we were shanghaied aboard the practice ships, with all of our possessions but the non-portable articles of furniture jammed into laundry bags. Life on the raging main had many diverting features-for the first week or so. After that, overnight sessions in a hammock, setting-up drill every morning with "ki-yis," and "Navy Chow" began to pall on us, and after drifting around that old anchor for a month, our idea of "nothing to do" was life in the Navy. .AN N At length we hoisted the old llwf ' mudhook and started on our X . 1 search for "El Dorado" out in QA' M' 'lil ff' JV 'M' far off California.

S. N. A., February 1, 1916.-After four months' continuous fighting in their entrench- ments, the Academic Department sallied forth in their long-looked-for semi-annual drive, and although they inflicted severe losses upon the Fourth Class, they were finally forced to retire to their first line. Until this great battle, the fighting had been more in t.he nature of skirmishes and raids which did no great damage, but which considerably undermined and weakened the powers of opposition of the Plebc army. Due to the abolishing of the spy system, and to an inherent weak- ness in ability to reconnoitre and thus gain advance information of the enemy's tactics, the supreme attack came as a surprise to the Plebes. Many men were lost in the first day's encounter with the Academids right flank-the English Department-so thc Plebes sent their picked men around against the rear-guard, the Dagoes, the flower of t.l1e Academic Department's army-but to no avail. The third day's charge was hurled at the center of the line, into the very hottest of holes, and it was rumored that during this engagement. the enemy was guilty of using asphyxiating math probs and dum-dum exami- nation questions. On the fourth day, the enemy assumed the attack, brought up their 42-centi- meter Mech guns, and put forth a final effort to dislodge the Plebes, but were eventually repulsed. 280 a- . ... B- :K 5 ' ii" dl -"""' ,, I , .. 300 Yards When the remaining members of the Academic Department, who were hovering in aeroplanes over the scene of expected surprise and victory for their cohorts, saw this final effort foiled, they scurried to earth, deeply chagrined, but seem- ingly more determined than before to rally their forces for another vicious attack on the shattered but victorious Plebes. lEditor's Note: Many Plebes rendered dis- tinguished service in the Battle of the Semi-Ann, but we can never replace those who fell in battle.l SOCIETY NOTES A resume of the social season of Plebe year shows it to have been a brilliant and a successful one. The summer period was one continuous round of water fetes--boating, sailing and salt- water bathing. The bathing costumes seen on the float were af ter the Ostende pattern, extreme- ly decolletc, and rather advanced. Frequent soirees were held in honor of the Plebes by those of the upper classes who did not go abroad for the summer months. Those who were fortunate enough to have received invitations to these chic affairs always returned with livid accounts of the entertainment. Several slumber parties were held by the English Department in Recrea- tion Hall, where smoking was cn regle on the balconies. The winter season was especially fascinating, many debutantes being brought forth at the matinee dances given by Professor Bell. The Saturday evening entertainments held in Bancroft Hall were also popular and charming. The following is a typical programme: I. Overture, "Welcome Plebes!" by the U. S. CUnitecl Cussoutj Orchestra. II. Recitation, "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, or, Memoirs of a Long Life," by A. Gilman. III. Scene from "Why Girls Leave Home," featuring Andy Laird and Kelly Thomas. 1 IV. Song, "Put More Wind in My Doughnuts, Mother," breezy bass solo, by T. G. W. Settle. ' V.

EDITORIAL The L'Times" takes pleasure in announcing the entry of the Class of 1919 into this world of gay and carefree pleasure. From every corner of the country they came, and were straightway merged into the melting-pot of the Navy. Plebe Summer was hardly a lotus-eating period of sinful and non-reg ease, but it was then that the Plebes learned to work. Football practise started in July, under the critical eye of Jonas Ingram. Seven men from this class have already won their football N's. Basketball, wrestling, gymnasium, and the other sports have all had their fair pro mortion of Plebes, and the class seems worthy of upholding the repu- tation which the Navy has won in the athletic world. May its future be as brilliant as its start. h VH I M. ' A . ' .L l Spuds Drill 282 FUULSQS .. , ,. . ,f1 . ' ' .

Youngsters in every sense of the word-in "faith," in "hope," and so much so in "charity" as to give ioi7 a cheer. Plebe Year had ended-no, it had never existed! From the moment we made that wild rush from the Armory, after graduation, to Lovers Lane, our previous existence at the Naval Academy was forgotten-swallowed up in the roseate hue of the coming Youngster Year. That night we made our united bow to Naval Academy society-the june Ball-where, with braces unequalled and haughty mien, as becoming men of our exalted rank, we watched our programs--those slips upon which we had spent so many months of feverish worrying-go awry. But it mattered not-we were Youngsters! A little thrill would chase down our spines at the thought of it. Youngsters! l t was a momentous day--a glorious nightg and then-the cruise! Qntitipatinn We do anticipate a pleasureg but, in that sense, the statement that we antici- pated our Youngster Cruise may be questioned. We looked forward toward it, and upon it, with mixed, questionable, and doubtful feelings. The scheduled itin- erary had certainly announced visits to several of the most interesting ports of Europe- CAbroad! l-low big that word sounded D Our "Skipper-to- be" was proclaimed by all who knew him to be a "prince"- and the list of those officers who were to accompany us failed to name any but those with the best of reputations in Ulvlidshipman Circles." With the exception of the sixteen first classmen, who were to act as junior officers, 283 A Bit Damp A f f , -ff, , U..cff'f-'f ' ,,-Z ' .' . .rf 4 U. S. S.

Notwithstand- ing these attractions, which would serve to make any cruise appear alluring, we did not "anticipate" our cruise. Tales of discomfort, of labor, . ,ull i-1, i lei' of unfairness, to a degree al- 'QW W , most unbelievable, had been L Q 7 so carefully impressed upon L our receptive minds, as Plebes, The Alley that it was with nothing but deepest regret that we em- barked on the "U, S.

All drills and v ' exercises were suspended during those first two days-an act as deep in its benefits as in its thoughtfulness. At the end of this time most of us were able to takea little interest in life, and the regular routine was begun. ' Everything and everybody seemed to go contrary to pre- dictions. The reveille we had been told to expect, at Five- thirty, was not heard until an hour later. The prophesied bucket-tub-and-washbasin failed to materialize-a well- equipped wash-room being at our disposal instead.

Scrubbing clothes did not turn out to be "drudgery" so gleefully promised us. Everybody scrubbed-but no one seemed to kick. Good feeling was so dominant through- out the entire ship that complaints, on our part at least, were unknown. "The Band" We stood our watches-at the wheel, lookouts, and lifebuoys-the sense of responsibility pleasing, rather than annoying us. ln a short while we had learned to keep the ship within at least ten degrees of her course, to tell lights from stars, and, with one exception, sailing ships from icebergs. The morning of our ninth day at sea we passed the Azores. Neither Columbus nor the Pilgrims ever greeted that hail of "Land ho! " with greater interest. The decks were soon crowded with amateur photographers eager to obtain illustra- tions for that blase "our first sight of land." The islands. however, were shortly dropped behind, and our ship found herself in the midst of a heavy ground swell which gravely threatened to destroy our confidence in our newly acquired "sea-legs " as well as the larger portion of our mess gear. Six days later we passed through HM, the pmgD1y1sion-H the English Channel, keeping close to the cliffs of Dover. at the time beautified by a crimson sunset, and at four o'clock in the morning of june 23d we dropped anchor at Flissingen-in the mouth of the Scheldt River. One o'clock saw us under way again, proceeding up the river. passing through a low country, at once so picturesque in its quaint villages, wind- mills and costumes of the peasants who ran to the river- ' banks to watch us pass, and offering a spectacle so truly rustic and peaceful, as to require no less than the pen of Burns for true description. About six o'clock the ship reached the city of Antwerp and 'midst the roaring of sa- lutes and dipping of colors, tied up at the thronged docks 'vi l S A X l A' -wgiiu-'ei'f"i of the North German Lloyd Line. at--.5.r',.

Followed four days at sea, with the usual routine and drills-but days which continued to show the kind nature of our "skipper" and officers- days still void of the oft promised toil and discomfort. Early in the afternoon of the 1 ith we headed into Ponte Vedro Bay, the town of Vigo. I-Iere, in the well sheltered and smooth bay, we were certain to have those "much-to-be-dreaded" boat-drills. But again predictions failed to materialize, the only boats leaving the ship being those kickers and steamers necessary to take the liberty, parties ashore, and the dinghy for swimming. The famous "quarter-deck guard" was formed during our stay at this port, but the duty being so arranged as not to interfere with liberty by watches, this innovation was greeted as a novelty rather than as a disagreeable duty. The town of Vigo-the birthplace of the Spanish Armada, and the center of many wild tales of sunken treasure-giving us our first impression of Spain and Spanish people, was rather disappointing. A mixture of Spanish and Portuguese, which was the prevailing language, proved incomprehensible to the "Spanish scholars," who were forced to await our arrival at Cadiz to " get back at those Frenchiesf' The town H'f -I N M. f l llilif 1 itself offered but little in the form of amusement, l . .

At the band concert given in the Plaza on Sunday night, several middies attempted to increase the feeling of goodwill existing between their country and Spain by introducing themselves to the gaily dressed Useioritasng but it was found that either conventions or national hostility forbade such informal acquaintances. Our general impression of Vigo was a resentment against Spanish customs, and a high regard for the cigarette-smoking abilities of even the children in arms. Early in the morning of the 15th we weighed anchor and with the usual salutes and courtesies, passed down the bay Off the Beaten Path 'l and out to sea-this time to keep the coast-line well in sight, and to resume sea I V l W ' ' ' 'P ' routine for the short spraceh of buii two ft " - i ,. . days.

The most noticeable feature of the harbor was the number of different classes of sailing ships. Particu- larly in evidence was the old type ,,jigg5-,:.f,i,-,lg-gL,,g Agvq ,,j7,g3,,m of four and five-masted, squared- En v,,it,,,, rigged, "wind-jammersn--a type almost completely obsolete in American waters, and which, therefore, proved h b h' t'me, considered ourselves true sons of the sea. ' ' Leave of absence for three days was granted to all hands for the purpose of visiting the city of Sevilla. That "Quien no ha visto Sevilla, no ha visto maravillau was heartily as- sured us by the Spanish students, and many availed themselves of this opportunity of visiting the most famous city of Spain. The usual liberty, so generous in quantity and length, was granted, and with pockets replenished from our struggling "amounts available" the days and evenings of our stay in this port were spent pleasantly and profitably. Early afternoon explorations of the city, followed by surf-bathing-an experience novel to many of us-and evenings spent in theatres and cafes, consti- tuted the general daily routine. Everyone attended the bull fight on Sunday, but, though men of blood and battle we may be, the sport ap- pealed to us as to any fair-minded - foreigner who for the first time wit- nesses Spain's most popular pastime.

The sight of that great and distant-sounding continent across the Straits from Gibraltar proved too much of a tempta- . tion to us "hardened explorers", with the consequence that a steamer was chartered and in the early morning of the 28th the trip to Tangier, Morocco, was begun. A little heavy weather and the natural choppiness of the Straits caused the majority of us, for the time being, to regret the spirit of adventure which had caused us to undertake the voyage. Our steamer was small, and acted quite differently in rough seas from the steady i " Illinois." We reached the African Coast about eleven o'clock, and under the influence of "terra Erma" beneath our feet again, to- gether with the interesting sights which greeted us, our drooping spirits began to rise. The remainder of the day was spent in anxious explorations of the city on mule-back and on foot, reveling in the quaint customs and costumes of the Mohammedans.

For these reasons our hearts were light in view of the future, but had it been any future but this one, we would, truly, have been down-hearted 293 L, .- una- 4 N Xxlx x x A X + ,Mi-IQ, 'W I tis W' -77 ' '.-x .'-',,.',l?'

And when it came! Cheers and comments, which would have made "T he Lay of the Last Minstrel" sound tame, welcomed it from every part of the ship. I-low good was the smell of pine-trees which greeted our nostrils as we came to anchor in Lynnhaven Roads! Home again! Even the most inanimate objects on the ship seemed to breathe those words. But do not let the reader glean the impression from this narrative that our drawing to a close. lt must the happiest part of a mid- "And They Laid Their Heads Upon the Stones" ' l upon viewing the end of our cruise. The T summer had been acclaimed by all as the hap- L. piest part of our "naval careers"-and the prospect of anything but home would have made us loath to leave the " Illinois." Two days later the football squad left us, and we settled our minds upon target practice. An order, posted on the scuttlebutt, stating l that provided this practice were completed we would disembark on the 28th-four days earlier than we had expected-filled everyone The Gm-de,, Spot with the determination that those targets should be riddled -though it were done in the teeth of a hurricane. Early on the morning of the 28th the anchor was weighed and the ship headed for the Southern Drill Grounds-target practice had arrived! A volume could easily and interestingly be written on the doings of the Class of xoxo on that dayg but it would be hard, indeed, to describe our feelings as we tensely awaited that first shot, l the strong rivalry that had developed between gun-crews, and the varied and peculiar incidents-the details of which filled our conversation for weeks to come. When the firing was over, and the number of hits -counted, the practice was proclaimed, by the ofhcers, a success-and our happiness was, therefore, increased tenfold. Not one of us but swore he would Nm a nm, in Sigh, not have missed that day's work for the proverbial "king's ransom." We, ourselves, had fired big guns, and we were justly proud of the fact. The few days which remained were spent in the feverish excitement of packing up and preparing to disembark. The sight of our empty lockers- lockers whose smallness had so often caused us worry and trouble-caused a queer tighten- ing sensation in our throatsg and, for many, a mistiness of eye-such had been our cruise! We dropped anchor in Crabtown Bay on the afternoon of the 27th-how familiar it looked-and spent the remainder of the day in hilarious snake dances over the ship, interspersed with ferocious glances at the Iilebes who had the audacity to sail by the s ip. Our last evening was spent as was our 1-i,if-w.yHo,,,, first-in singing and dancing-our "cruise 294 P A x iwfw, M g lil' gm ,IE llfgsbgm linda" -er B ti song" being rendered by the entire class with a volume which promised disturbance of' Annapolitan sleepers. Then, silently, we turned in in our hammocks, for the last time. The next morning, very shortly after seven o'clock, we piled into the 1 sailing launches with our "Europe- and-Africa-screamingn suitcases and laundry bagsg and with hoarsening cheers for those officers and men whom all declared to be the finest in the Navy, we left the "Illinois," after what was unanimously acclaimed the finest cruise ever taken by midshipmen. Lal How Many Hits? Remembrance Our Youngster Cruise is long over- two cruises have since been made, but the memory of those days spent on the "Illinois" continues, and always will continue, to hold a place uppermost in our minds 3 and in future class 'WTI gatherings-as in those of to-day-the ul I conversation will invariably lead to a ll , "Do you remember?" concerning our Youngster Cruise. The benefits have been many. We only 300 SIMS went on board the "Illinois"'as eight sep- arate unit bodies of men-we returned a class. Throughout our career at the Naval Academy the instruction and knowledge gained on this cruise have been a decided help in the classroom and on other ships. Our close contact with the officers of the "Illinois" has always served as an incentive to hard work-the real- ization that some day such men as these will be our brother officers. 'is-.,w" fl Above all else there stands the , memory of a man whose praise will be forever sung by the Class of IQI6-' a man whose kindness, thoughfulness, and, at the same time, determination and efficiency, will stand as the ideal qualities to which we will aim our lives-our skipper! I ff. Together we sing: All Down! Oh, hush the noise on the " Illinois," lt's all down but ten.

Today-as we look back upon our Youngster Cruise-there comes a full realization of how greatly we erred in so doing. We made our bow to Belgian Society on the evening of our return from "Gay Paree," when we were entertained at a banquet, given in our honor, by Baron and Mme. H. Albert von Bary. Two hundred and twenty-five strong we presented ourselves at the banquet hall-a little abashed and tremulous. A year of Naval Academy Mess-Hall does not leave one over-confident concerning the proper etiquette for banquetsg of course, we realized that to throw a piece of bread across the table-or to declaim loudly on the quality of the viands Cfiendishly putting a classmate under the table at the same timej "was not being done in the best families"-and were, therefore, acts tabooed on this occasion, but on the finer points we were a bit rusty. An early toast to our Captain, however, saved the day. Never could we drain a glass sufficiently to do full honor to that toast-and in many cases two glasses were requisitioned. From thence- 5 forth did any and all trepi- dation disappear-even the many attempts to carve the . A tempting, but unyielding, marble lobster, being greeted with nothing more than good-natured chaff.

We found in them a race in whom kindness, courtesy Coffee was served in the reception room-where cigars and cigarettes were found in abundance. The peculiar kind of smoke emitted by these was invisible to all officers- so, with light hearts, everyone "lit up." The National Band, in the gar- den outside, played "Dixie" and other American airs while we strolled in the moonlight--praising the Baron's taste in wine and tobacco-and blessing was a glorious evening!

Many charming young ladies from the Pensionnat Delstunche x ij The Steen were present and we immediately un- dertook to initiate them into the intri- cacies of the American Dance-as set forth by Professor Bell.

As the reader may well imagine, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and we are indebted to Am- bassador and Mrs. Marbourg for one of the most -i - i llfff, il pleasant memories of our Youngster Cruise.

We inspected the various parts of the Exposition, Seeing the Exposition from the Dutch cheese exhibit to the l7OO H. P.

Before we left the city we gave one more yell for our cordial hosts, who had increased our already high opinion of Belgian hospitality. ly-Wg, Straub Glass Qhfuise FTER a two weeks' seclusion from civilization on the turbulent bosom of Mother Atlantic, the U.

Accordingly we embarked with the usual "three-months-without-a-bath" air. The first clay out some one discovered that he could work up a lather with lvory Soap under the showers in the manger-heaven had been realized. Five Bells-no repartee between the deck force and the black gang -surely this was paradise. ln less than two days we learned that a clean ship won't stay so of its own accord, whereupon .

Never was there a cleaner ship than the ldaho that we turned over to the Greeks, but when we went back from the Maine, two days later, to pay her an official farewell, what a change -the Lemnos with live stock on her dirty quarterdeck and chickens in the spud lockers. lt hurt-and we were 305 we were relegated from the dignified and lofty position of joe Gish, Mid- shipman, Second Class, of June Week, to that of joe Gish, O. S., compart- ment cleaner, etc. Quite a fall. We worked, we kept her clean, and, comparatively speaking, we had a happy ship. Nothing much hap- pened until we saw the Misery and the llly sail for Gravesend, while we headed for Villefranche and liberties Drying Down " .TQ 1 V 'N 'F ' fmfai gp l, , :'w3,l' .ff 'i :f,n'i1 ll' - ' L...

When she first loomed up over the horizon at Villefranche she had that sickly green color that war paint takes when it is not gone over in a quarter century, and as for coal-she didn't exactly carry a deck load-no, not in bags nor in bins, but there was enough walked into her decks to supply the Idaho twice around the world could it have been extracted. We knew what our work was to be on the Maine without being told, we had been well schooled on the Idaho under one man-the First Lieutenant. How could a midshipman's summer of practical work be better spent than in doing the duties of a fifteen-dollar-a-month deck hand? Fresh water was turned on in our well scattered wash room once or twice a day-always wheh the decks were cleared-the rest of the time it overflowed the tanks and gently lapped at our feet as we stowed our lockers for the daily inspec- tion. Underway we steamed on six boilers and the two scuttlebutts, in port Cwe never got libertyj the scuttlebutts furnished steam for the auxiliaries. We left Villefranche immediately after war broke out, having seen half of France arming and marching away from the arsenal there, and set our course for Gibraltar. We were met by two tor- pedo boats and escorted through the ,' mine mesh, never knowing when we ' FJ might pick up one in the main injec- tion, and anchored well out from the mole. We shifted our anchorage only six times getting to a satisfactory berth, and, fortunately, lost only one anchor. This was not a misfortune, but a God- v 306 ......,. ..,,...

Reluctantly we gave up our game of hide and seek to play tag with the spig coal heavers. A more detailed treatise, entitled "Four Days in a Coal Cloud." covers this period thoroughly. Being at war they were not veryihospitable at Gibraltar, so we decided to try a more friendly port and drifted across to Tangier-drifted, we say. because the Maine could not go otherwise. After our long journey from Gibraltar we did not feel like attempting a sea voyage, so we stayed on at Tangier for a short three weeks. On the sixteenth of August, like Columbus, we took a chance. The trip across was uneventful save for our starboard engine's breaking down and our having to put into San Michel. Azores. for coal. There we made a liberty in a splendid little town.

As Head Coach, with "Tac" Hardwick of T Harvard fame, and "Babe," "Bully" and "Jonas Prime"-all of them intimately connected with foot- ball at the Naval Academy-he put forward a team imbued with so much of his own fight and enthusiasm that we cannot but welcome his selection and accept- ance as Head Coach for next year. "Pop" Cill, himself a well-known Navy baseball --5,.,,-- man, and "Steve" Brodie of Oriole fame, have by their united efforts put into commission a team which, at the time of writing, gives strong promise of bring- ing about the long delayed and long hoped-for Navy victory over the Army. For sixteen years Navy Crews, many of them champions-all of them worthy of their colors-have been patiently coached by "Dick" Clendon. As a coach-there are none betterg as a friend-there are few as good. The gradual upbuilding of the Navy Track Team from one of mediocre form to a team capable of com- peting with the best in the country, can be ascribed solely to the untiring efforts of Mr. Mang. With Captain "jawn" as the only N man in the sport and no officer available as coach, the basket- ball prospects were pretty gloomy, but ,lim Colliflower stepped into the breach and, being well acquainted with Navy tactics from long service as referee, gave his best towards the production of a mighty good team.

For years his quiet work has pro- duced teams that have been not only a credit to, but a ' pride of the Blue and Gold-and this past season was no exception. Though we have never been allowed to take part in the Intercollegiate Wrestling Finals, our team has met every team of repute in the country, and has lost but one meet in the past five years. The long hours that Mr. Schutz has spent on the mat, hard at work with the individual mem- bers of the team, have made this possible. Mr. scum In practically the same category as Wrestling, our Gym team has never entered the Intercollegiatesg but the fact that it has been undefeated for six seasons is in itself suffi- cient proof that Mr. Mang has been displaying his versa- tility by producing a team worthy of the title of Intercol- legiate Champions.

All through the winter a squad was working on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the Armory, hurling forward passes at Jonas' improvised electrically controlled targets. It was the hardest kind of work-doubly hard because no one could see the reward ahead at the time-but somehow the bunch had gotten the idea that they were doing something that was going to beat the Army, and they WCFC COFICCFII. Then came the warm days of spring. The squad went outside, put on foot- ball togs, and for a solid month worked like Trojans every da signals and formations for the game with Georgetown some- where in the far distant fall. Jonas was ordered here, Bill Hollenback joined him to help, and spirit was present in ever- abundant quantities. Before the month was over, there were four teams running signals up and down the parade-ground in mid-season form. The most skeptical could not but pre- dict a successful season for long. The squad carried signals and plays with them to their various ships, and blackboard talks helped to keep the things learned during the spring fresh in mind throughout the cruise. The Plebes started practise in July, and continued work until the big squad returned. The most promising material ever offered by any entering class was found and shunted over to the varsity on the zoth of September. ln the meantime "Tack" Hardwick had joined the coach- ing staff, and was working with all his wonderful enthusiasm 323 y perfecting plays, nl' l l 5. ,.

Ten days' leave had been cheerfully sacrificed and all hands had their faces V Q Headquarters Getting the Dope set towards November 27th. Little Jonas, Babe Brown, and Bully Richardson reported for duty soon, and the coach- ing staff became second to none in the country.

This workout showed plenty of I" .. 4? P12 Captain Miles 1 ua.. A 1 l T .J Signals! power, but little Hnish, though- on the whole wassatisfactory. Then came the beating by Georgetown, q-o. It was a bitter pill to swallow, but did not discourage us. Georgetown was represented by the best team in its history, and it was at top form that day. Gilroy was easily the star of the con- test, and was one of the best backs ever seen here. The next week many changes were made, and every effort put forth to find a combination that could cope successfully with Pittsburgh. We knew what to expect from them-we had seen them before and had the greatest respect for Coach Warner. 47-iz was the final score, with Pitt on the long end. Never before had a Navy team been so disastrously beaten. There was little consolation in the fact that Pittsburgh had the strongest team in the country, and were playing their best at the time. The next week brought work. Work with renewed spirit and energy. We had not lost sight of November 27th, and were far from being disheartened. Penn came, and we fought to a 7-7 tie. Never had such improvement been shown by any team in one short week. It was a good game -hard fought from start to finish-the best one played on Farragut Field for a long time. , . . ., . . . . . ...... .. .,.......,. . .4 .... ....-. .... ..,...-...........-. ....

All the points were made in the second half, power galore showing up in flashes. Then the team went into a slump, North Carolina A, 82 M. beating us 14-iz. They kicked their goals and we didn't, was the whole story of the score, but in general it was discouraging. They beat us by straight football and it hurt. Next came Bucknell. The team had gotten together again, and although penalties and fumbles robbed us of at least three touchdowns, they made but one first down, and that on a freak forward pass, which netted 60 yards, putting them in a position to kick a field goal. The final result was never in doubt. Round the End 328 " L, Q- ,V ' 1 ,H ' ' f ,Qi ,,'! v v 15211 N. X - H-.ll l ll' I lr fi , lxghfxx f lflffl X- kv Wx X Q!!

The victory wasn't much, very little teamwork being shown, but some of the old star performers were getting back into shape, and that was what had been lacking most of the season. ' The next Saturday brought the most humiliating defeat of the year. Little Ursinus scored a touchdown and field-goal, while the best we could do was a touch- down and goal, IO-7 was the final score.

We were at a standstill, and the outcome on November 27th would be determined by what could be accomplished in that short time. What really did happen is treated elsewhere. Taking the season as a whole, it was the most disastrous that any Navy team ever went through. Still, with all the defeats, it was not entirely lacking in bright spots and rewards, and most of all we learned. We learned first of all, that spirit and fight are not the only factors in winning football games. Neither are brawn and physical prowess the chief requisites. It takes brains and experience, and, comparatively speaking, there never was a more inexperienced team than that which respresented the Navy in ioig. Possibly the greatest thing is that the Regiment learned to back a losing team with a spirit that has never been equaled, and will never be surpassed. But the most important thing of all to be recognized is that when we meet the Army on Franklin Field or on the Polo Grounds, it is first of all a football game, and a game which we will fight like men to win, but one which it is no disgrace to lose, if we lose fighting like men. Too much cannot be said for the coaching staff and particularly for Jonas. In the face of all disasters he was working with a cheer and determination that won the heart of every man in the Regiment. We realize the value of this when we think of him as a man who has gone through sport and battle, and has never been beaten. He has met setbacks and reverses, but has always come out victorious in the end. xoxo will prove this so.

This has to do with the season preceding the game, which, although looked on by the world in general as an ordinary baseball play- ing season, we regarded as a period of preparation to beat the Army-we didn't, as we have said before, and hence we will not remember this last season as a successful one. But if we can discard this viewpoint and consider the season on its own merits, we cannot but be satisfied with the results. We had our slumps-all teams have them-but when we emerged from the temporary rut we played excellent baseball, winning ten out of our last eleven games. The eleventh game was the Army game. UB' J", The season started early. Washington's Birth- day saw outdoor practice, but the greater part of the early work was confined to the cage. The team was a veteran one. There were few unknown quantities- I... 1"' 4 'F' 2 ll ' .. -. -, f E7 1 , i,',5.i,:f - ,f I .i ,..., ,... ua .. .--4, J if It-H 4-W ,., ig",.l'l '2'AQ7.h i ,I f I . I 'T l fl f .. ..., .. l l "Spuds"-Nu! Ced! 333 T the whole question at hand was to get started. Nick Altrock was down and acted as Fuzzy's chief counselor, besides providing amusement in the dull intervals. The season began March 24th, with West Virginia as our victim, the score being prophetically 13-o. Pennsylvania followed next, and for the third successive year we won. From then on the season was one of ups and downs--we won some and lost others by close scores-in which the breaks, and at times poor playing, on our part-figured prominently, until in the last i week in April our score was 6 ii won and 6 lost. Well, there were ,various A reasons. One had to have T one's suit washed after every "Mm" - slide, coaching from the field was a social error, and remarks from the bench were considered positively "gauche." What could you expect a team to do? The games began to be lifeless-super- refined baseball, the ultra ultra. "Fwy" Then the change came. Somebody inadvertently cried " Robber " at the umpire one day, and no report for "conduct unbecoming a gentleman" following, the Council of War 334 ff 'W ' '-Q, - . . .1.x..L.i4,i.i.i.i...,A. A 1- -- ' , - -I ?1 -I 4:-'WL r "The Regulus" gang struck their old stride. The pep came back and the Navy team in action made the Mad Mullah look like Henry Ford and other noted pacifists piecing together a picture puzzle of the Dove of Peace. All the latent fight, the pent-up energy of the era of repression, came to the surface with a rush, and the team played like a whirlwind-they couldn't lose. Time after time with the opposing Some Swing! 335 Bert Standing By team well in the lead, Fuzzy would take a drink of water, squint down the bench and say, "Let's go!" They did. The crack of the Navy bats drove many a pitcher from the mound and the defense made an up-to-date trench look like a golf tee between' the firing lines-it was impenetrable. From then on the Navy team looked like a diploma to a wooden man. Georgia, A. 82 M., Pittsburgh, Dickinson, C. U., Georgetown, all came and went defeated. The team was playing wonderful ball, Adams and Hicks in particular. The infield worked like a D. O. out on a raid, and the outfield-well-the outfleld was there. The pitchers were going well, everybody was full of confidence, the Regiment was backlof us, even the officers' wives began to say nice things about the team, and well they might, for it was a good team, a mighty good team. The Navy has produced some good nines, but this was as good as any. Strike One! 836 CCW . ...vgy -.n.u.. ,.'.,. .. 1 A .-.,,,..-.- p- 'HV N 'f-A"" .A- 40-0:5 uf?- .f , , , J.

I-IE return of "Dick" Glendon to coach last year's crews, together with the material on hand, gave promise of an even more successful season than that of the year before. Four of the men who had held seats in the Varsity boat during the previous season were eligible, besides practically the entire second crew of that year: and the Plebe Class offered particularly good prospects. Prospects and prophecies, however, are very unreliable at the Naval Academy, as many a big contest will testify. The season started in earnest just after the Semi-Anns, the first few weeks of practice being spent in the "Box" in the tank. Early March saw us out on the water, rounding into shape-and the outlook still most promising. The "blow" fell shortly afterwards-when the Academic Board ruled that no midshipman unsatisfactory in any subject would be allowed to participate in a race. With this decision, the combination which bid fair to offer more than a close contest for Princeton-our first op- ponents-was broken up to an extent almost beyond repair, the Second Crew suffering similarly at the same time. Any one at all fa- miliar with crew work will realize the disastrous results which must follow such a break-up so late in --Crunch" the season. ..S,,,,,,,,.. ' "' sas . -H.

With but one week before the Princeton contest, the Navy Crew again took the water-a new eight. The time was too limited to bring them to form, ' ' howeverg and on April 17th the orange oars swept across the line to a three-length victory. The Plebe Crew, in the meantime, had continued to hold to its prospects, and on the same day, defeated the Princeton Freshmen by a close two lengths. The Harvard race was to take place on the following Saturday 3 a shift in the Varsity boat was necessary, and the new eight must be developed into a crew which could defeat the "World Beaters ' of the "Skimw" and "Dick" 341 'ffi , ' f "X ' ' 'll ll CNF I A S -,A rif A XX 4.-:fag I 4 l 5-. 1 - 7' t i ' S A 'flllll I , - T , riffs Xilf iws ...AAA ,A -r ' ' f'f' J..--:r-'U.,A, If """ ' A' A -- .. -. .

The shift was made, and during the week two more shifts followed- turning out a practically new crew to meet the Crimson eight. The Press termed the Harvard victory " Inevitable," but admitted that the Navy had made a much better showing than was expected, The same day the Navy Second Crew defeated the Analostan Boat Club of Washington 5 and the Plebes added the Central High School of Philadelphia to their list of victories. To prepare for the Pennsylvania race on the next Saturday the entire Varsity boat was shifted and work begun to build up a real Navy Crew. Again the time was too shortg and on May lst the Pennsylvania Varsity and Second Crews crossed the line in both races ahead of the Blue eights. The Plebes once more saved the Navy from a complete defeat by finishing three lengths ahead of the Penn Freshmen. ' The Annual Exams prevented the usual trip to the American Henley at Philadelphia-a fact greatly regretted by allg for with one month to prepare his crews we feel sure that "Dick" could have rounded out a combination which would have made a showing creditable to the Naval Academy. The crew season, as a whole, was anything but a success: but, when the conditions which confronted the Squad and the Coaches are considered, such an outcome was only what could rightfully be expected. Wherever the fault may have lain, we are certain that it was in nowise due to any lack of hard work on the part of the Squad and the Coachesg and we feel reasonably assured that next season will see the Navy Crews re-established in the position in the van which they have always held, The Varsity 848 NG S ke IQTOGNN -.

True, two games were lost out of the fourteen playedg but in these games the Navy was vanquished by but a slight margin-in one case an extra period being necessary. Among the teams that the Navy defeated were the strong aggregations from Pennsylvania, champions of the Inter- L, collegiate League, Crescent Athletic Club, Washington Q and Lee, and Virginia. .The record of the team entitles . it to the championship of the South. The team began the season with but one veteran, Captain Wilkes, in the line up Q but due to the fierce competition for places, a wealth of second string mate- rial and the efforts of Coach Colliflower, it quickly de- veloped into a team worthy of the Navy. In size the ..c,,,,,,,,, J,w,,,. team was one of the smallest that ever represented the Navy, but what they lacked in size they made up in aggressiveness and speed. Calhoun and Gregory at forwards formed a clever combination which im- proved as the season advanced. Allen at center was the find of the season and promises to develop into one of the best centers that the Navy has ever had. Carson, a second string forward, surprised everyone by developing into a capable guard, his former experience at forward "T''i"'i'if"""'fT"'l"""f"lT7"f adding materially to the offensive strength of the team. Wilkes, the other guard, was, as ever, the mainstay of the defense, and time after time broke up a combination that threatened the Navy's goal. - T . The second team was composed of men who to a great extent were responsible for the season's success in that they made the first team go at top " ' speed to hold their places. The true measure of a team's strength is in its substitutes and in this particular the Navy was especially strong. Y -. ' ' .,.,' '1 -4 . Q 5:5 TP . :,Q1'.Z'?'

This is probably an important one of the many reasons for the growing popularity of the game-namely, the ease with which it is mastered by those who have never even seen it played before coming to the Academy. Lacrosse itself is older than the i Academy-older than the country-but as a rec- ognized and important branch of Athletics it is practically new here, compared to football, base- N-"""'M -- ball, crew, and other long-established sports. The game was introduced tentatively in IQO8, and proved an instant success. Since that time it has developed into a popular pastime for large numbers of devotees. It is no longer confined to the Navy Squad-any afternoon in the spring the athletic fields are dotted with aspirants who realize the physical advantages which accrue from the faithful pursuit of this good old sport-en- durance, wind, a clear head, nerve. --pm-,yrv 349 9' is-of-' u A. ..,,,..,. .,,i.

There were many gratifying features, however, among them being increased interest on Pretty Close 355 X! the part of the Brigade as evinced by more candidates and larger crowds attending the meets. The squad contained more steady workers and fewer "grafters" than ever before. The lack of distance runs destroyed the balance of the team and made one or two events the deciding factor in all the close meets. However, the work of the relay men and the pole vaulters, and the excellent sprinting of Collins, contributed largely towards making the season a decided success.

Virginia 64, Navy 44.- In the best meet of the season our weakness in the hurdles and hammer throw cost us the victory. The need of more and better ma- terial in these events was emphatically shown. All events went in good time, Collins' work especially showing him to be a sprinter of the first order.

Bad weather and track conditions prevented fast work of any kind. Georgetown 15, Navy 76.-The last meet of the season resolved itself into a competition between Navy men. Stubbins, the Georgetown sprinter, was disqualified and withdrew after the 440-yard dash, and "Nubby" jones. the dash man, failed to appear at all. While the feature of the meet was Collins' loo yards, in Q 4X5 seconds, Dean and DeVeaux did well in the hurdles. A glance at the list of point winners shows that Graduation removed many of the strongest men on the team, but at the same time Captain Thompson has a good nucleus for a team and he will make an effort to build up the weak events which cost us many points last season.

Rifle Qiieam VER since xoxo, when the Academy rifle team made its last trip to Camp Perry, work on the rifle squad has been its own re- ward. Not that shooting under any conditions ever for a moment loses its charm, for the interest of the marksman is ever on the qui vive and the marksman's efforts, when crowned with the satisfaction of a "bull," are well rewarded. But the necessity for giving up almost all spring liberty is a great demand where liberties at best are scarce. The spring days of IQIS were filled with hard work, six days a week, and Lieutenant Denny's efforts produced a well-balanced team-a team winning all matches except the Intercollegiate, in which a misinterpretation of the rules neces- sitated re-shooting one range after five months without practice. We "shot" our old rivals of D. C.g winning in an interesting contest. Revenge was sweet in the case of the 7 ist N. Y., and "David" came back into our midst with a rush. In a match with the officers stationed at the Academy we came out the winners. ln both matches with the Marine Corps team, recruited from the Ordnance school, we emerged victorious. This is particularly gratifying. as Captain McDougal, who captained the Marine Corps team which won the National Match in roi 1 , also headed this ouzfor Bulls team.

While in Los Angeles on the Summer Cruise an eight-man team shot a match with the Los Angeles Rifle and Revolver Club. This match was lost by a narrow margin, our team being handicapped by strange rifles, a new range, and three months without practice. This match was a milestone in the history of the team, marking, as it did, the Hrst match away " Charlie " from the home range in five years. lf' I Four men of last year's team were lost by graduation, but the fall practice has given evidence of much shooting ability in the Acade- my and from appearances there will be a neck-and-neck race to hll these , V- Vacancies- On the Firing Line 363 ... mms 1 zfmw ,ra Y .i'5llQa' 'l f Hy A x :gf '-"' ' XXQ so :wr X- X fx Y N fl' fir,-5 g v I , xx F- ff ", Q'-.

The contests with Virginia, Dickinson, johns Hopkins, and St. johns resulted in victories, while defeat was suffered at the hands of Princeton, Harvard and Pennsylvaniag the match with Georgetown ending in a tie. Unfortunately inclement weather prevented the matches with Michigan and Pittsburgh. Captain Godfrey was on the hospital list throughout "T""'S" the season and was thereby prevented from taking his place as an active factor in the seasons work. He devoted much of his time and energy, however, to the team's developmentg and contributed in good measure to the success of the season. His absence from the game broke up a strong doubles combination and forced his partner, Watters, to turn his attention to singles, KVI' ii l 'i The Team, 1915 365 ' m' f X 1 1 1 If -- 2 ltifgllr The Courts leaving the doubles to be handled by Sperry and Wood, and Randolph and Haeberle. The work of the members of the team was uniformly good, but Randolph's game in singles was of a decidedly superior nature and Watters displayed a con- sistently high order of tennis. The exhibition matches by four ofthe best players in the country-Alexander, Hall, Church and Ivlathey-gave the Brigade an opportunity to witness a variety of tennis that was quite beyond the ken of the great majority. The increased interest in the sport was manifested in the number of devotees to be found on the courts at sunrise, as well as during the afternoons. , . The tournament board with its rating of all the tennis squad gave an added stimulus and brought out consider- able latent talent. The interest and efforts of Commander Phelps, Lieu- tenant Gill and Instructor Foster were potent factors in the development of the team and of tennis as a recreation for all hands.

There is never a question, "Did you win?" lt is always,"Whom did you meet?" But once in five years has the team lost a meet, and in that time every college team of any importance in the East has been met. Such a record is truly one to be proud of, and it stands for a lot of hard, self- sacrificing work on the part of the men who have made this possible. The season started with Rutgers, whom we easily took into camp, next came New York Univer- sity and Yale. Both of these meets were Navy victories, though we found a worthy opponent in Yale. Then came the only dark spot on our record. In a closely contested triangular meet between the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, and Navy, Captain Charley we were nosed out of first place by one point. Far be it from the Gym Team to seek an alibi, but anyone who knows the conditions will realize that it was a peculiar combination of circumstances rather than an inferior team, that caused our defeat. The work of the whole team was well balanced, and exceedingly good. In fact, Mr. Meng, the veteran coach of Navy gym teams, says that it was one of the best, if not the best, that he has seen heref Captain Berwind was probably our most spectacular performer, and he is without doubt the foremost exponent of the parallels among the colleges to-day. I-lardison has for three years shown the best form on the- horizontal bar, and was by far the best the Navy has ever had on this apparatus. Benson was certain to be in the money on the horse, while Councill, the wizard of the flying rings, and all-around champion, was another consistent point-getter. Clark, our tumbling artist, and Fallon, tamer of Indian clubs, complete our list of first-string men. Too much cannot be said in praise of the untiring efforts of Mr. Mang and Mr. Boehmke, who coached us. These two, with Captain Berwind, took the team in hand October ISE and never stopped until March 11th. Mr. Mang has been here for ten years, . and to him must go a large share of the credit for the long list of winning gym teams.

Gymnasium, as a sport, is more popular with the performers than with the spectators. This is but natural, as it requires some knowledge of the work to appre- ciate it. However, it is surpassed by no other sport as ameans of physical development, and is intensely inter- esting to those taking part in it. Besides, a person need not be good in order to make a start in this form of athletics, for the excellence of his performance is in almost direct proportion to the amount of work which he is willing to put into it. For these reasons, there is never a lack of candidates for the team, and the Academy seems sure of holding its position in college gymnastics. The team will lose by graduation several of its best performers: Capt. Berwind, I-Iardison and Fallon, all veterans of four years' experience. That they will be hard to replace goes without saying, but there are capable men to step into their shoes, and the team next year will undoubtedly live up to its past record. 369 EP' ucarryv Aww-'4 .Y . ,E r Q W, ,- - rf--WT' f --.-...,, , fly J l X S1 W, 41?

At the hrst meet against Penn State, the Navy put on the mat the best team in the East, evidence of which is amply afforded by the resulting score. However, the roseate prospects of a phenomenal season were badly shattered by the words of the Academic Board. On account of scholastic deficiencies three weights were left utterly devoid of experienced men. I t was then that the Hustlers came to the rescue. By dint of pluck and perseverance the gaps were filled and the team again faced the opponents, weakened but not discouraged. "Broady" Time after time Beismier and Weitzel faced their opponents outweighed between twelve and twenty pounds, and held their own. Ericsson, better this year than ever, won every bout, none of the visiting grapplers providing an effective defense against the Swede's deadly "tackle and heave." Captain Broadfoot, the peer of his weight, won every bout in three meets- a matter of course to all, but the story of an injury to his shoulder just before the Yale meet is a story of the Navy's defeat on that day. With the score a tie, Redman put up a plucky battle, but the splendid scissors of Yale's middleweight turned the tide of victory to Old Eli. Grant, returning from a success- ful encounter with Spanish, downed his man in short order. Grant this year won a decision over Captain Long of Penn State, acknowledged the best man of his weight in the East. Wyatt, how- ever, was the star of the season. The crippled condition of the Navy team forced on him the superhuman task of wrestling twice in three out of five meets, and of eight bouts he lost but one. And so it went throughout a season of despair and depression: the Navy team reinforced by the Hustlers and backed by the entire Have, 370 IL X W .., wuul .157 I r l wg? pf' "-- .-.:. J MA .. .... ..

N some extraordinary manner, the idea seems to have I become disseminated among people outside the Acad- ' ' ' emy that the midshipmen should excel at this sport with practically no effort, merely because of their f status in a sea-going service, if for no other reason. X This is of course far from the truth. Swimming is a game of skill, and excellence therein is attained only after long, hard, and painstaking practiceg practice requiring time which we can ill spare to give to our athletics, and then only at sacrifice of the few recrea- tion hours at our disposal. The grind for the swimming teams starts in the late fall, and continues every after- noon till the half-raters are broken out, the band starts to play in the yard, and spring is upon us. This means a long winter of unbroken work with only the wistful and envious extra swimming squad as onlookers. 'Wi 2 upmumn The season opened with a rush on january 27th and we took the meet from the Washington Swimming Club with a good margin. We were fortunate enough to obtain the services of Mr. Ralph McKinnon as coach and under his tutelage the team rapidly rounded into shape. Having lost but two men by graduation last year, there remained a good squad to start work, with the addition of several new men who showed form. After taking Pittsburgh, College of the City of New York, and Cornell into camp, the team struck a snag in the University of Chicago team, which honored us with a short visit on their flying trip East. A bad start lost us the ten points of our old standby, the relay, and this proved the deciding factor in the meet. Pussy Earle's brother showed us some real swimming in the two-twenty, romping home in some two minutes and twenty seconds. Their championship plunger, built on the lines of the H-6, brought up against the rail : in log seconds. In the next meet, with New York Athletic Club, Navy was a bit out of her class, but put up a game fight nevertheless, and the score spoke well for our abilities. l In the Princeton meet, we were handi- capped by the loss of several first-string men, and again the loss of the relay gave the Tiger a lead which he managed to hold, and win by a scant one point. ., ,. . . 372 7A l ,VC 'ill' X an -' 'J ' V. -25 t A -mg H 5-0 -I C B if . 1.2! f .

Captain Borden displayed his old-time speed in the back-stroke, and worked night and day all winter to turn out a winning team. Post continued u his good work in the plunge and in addition pushed Borden 4 ' hard for back-stroke honors. Vail also developed wonder- fully in this event, and took first place in several meets. Doc Cook, erstwhile sprinter, shifted to the hundred and i HHN. -qv' ' made good with a rushg Haight ran away with the zzo with i consistencyg and Browning, Griffiths and I-Ierndon did exceptionally well in sprints. Dashiell's injury handicapped him at the beginning of the season, and gave him a bad start, hard to overcome. Too much credit cannot be given to Captain Borden, Manager Vincent, and Coach McKinnon for their hard and consistent work to turn out a successful team. Although we stand to lose several good men by graduation, the squad is large enough to insure a nucleus for next year's aggrega- tiong and under the leadership of Bobby Dashiell, we may expect another successful season. ..s,,,y,. 373 . Jfenting T has become a habit among us to sneer at fencing as a game unht for real men. This attitude is clue, in part, to that bored feel- ing that overcomes one after watching a fencing meet for only a few minutes, and even its most ardent supporters admit that it is not an ab- sorbing sport from the spectators viewpoint, but in spite of all this is well worth while. There are few sports in which we indulge which develop the hand and the eye as does fencing, The development of a mind that can keep a lap ahead of its opponents and fathom his next move is essential to a successful fencer and 1- Jimmy" it is a valuable asset to a naval ofhcer. In short, fencing is the sport that pits one's wits and agility against his opponents, resulting in a contest less interesting to an outsider, but otherwise nearly on a par with the sports in which brawn plays a more prominent part. The past season might well be termed commonplace, for it is no unusual thing for Navy Fencing Teams to have a clear record. All our college opponents capitu- lated to our swordsmen and the only teams to secure victories were our long-established conquerors- Washington Fencers' Club and New York Athletic Club. Q With but one N man left in the sport Captain White and the coaches had to develop a practically new team. Doughty, a substitute of the previous season, came to the front as a first string man, being a very clean and careful fencer. A trifle inclined to be happy-go-lucky at times, his work has on the whole been consistently good. l The find of the season was Jeter, a plebe pos- sessing the requisites of an ideal fencer. Nothing seems to phase him in action and once he has learned any point, he never forgets it. Going at his work scientifically, he has made notes on each of his "0rIey" 374 l l I l ' Jw KM Y n i i Q' Nmi 'fl-4. I i. 'nb' .. if P QWTWN X .Q il li. ,,. .

Captain White, twice Academy champion with the foils, has done his usual splendid work all through the season. He defeated every one of his college opponents and but three of the older men were able to defeat him. Although the sabre is a comparatively new intercollegiate weapon, the Navy sabre team, led by l-Ieadlee, runner-up to Horn in the lntercollegiates last year, has done good, steady work and a victory at New York is by no means unlikely. At the time of writing the season is not yet finished, but persistent work on the part of Captain White and the coaches-Instructor Fournon, Swordmaster Heintz and Mr. Darrieulat-has put the team in trim to keep the Iron Man with us for another year. 375 ig,f"f"' I x .V I. , ,,4 'ln .... .,,.+..,-, ,A "?

CD73 GENEROUS portion of the fight the Navy team produced on the Polo Grounds can be ascribed to the "5o'Z," supplied by the Brigade, but without two men the 5o'Z, might never have been. From the depths of the deepest gloom Cy Lyle and Piggy Price dragged the Brigade, and converted a mass of apathetic, beaten midshipmen into a howling mob that ate, studied, felt, thought, dreamed, and yelled "Fight!" Without disparaging the team or the coaches, the efforts of Lyle and Price were a big factor in making November 27th a day of honorable defeat. "All right, people, Gangway Yell!

Qrmp Game On Thanksgiving morning the team set forth for New York to meet the Army. Ahead of them lay a hard game with a team that was among the best in the countryg behind them, a record that spoke of a green team sadly lacking in experience, teamwork, and finish. But behind them there was also a fierce O vlrvollll. III! cu.

Miles won the toss and chose to defend the east goal. As the teams lined up for the kick-off, none but a midshipman could fail to see where the odds lay. Miles, the captain of the team, was nursing injuries on the bench, five plebes held first string places, and of the old guard, only Craig, Ward, and Westphal remained. They were good men, but inexperienced, men who had not been steadied by long service in the field. They faced an experienced team, well drilled and well balanced, of which scarcely a man had not weathered two Navy Games. The Army kicked off to Craig, who came back to our 35-yard line. The teams un- ,-r,,,,, tangled and lined up eagerly for the first trial 382 l l I UIDUWIODD I UIIDERWUOD Stopping Olly of strength. Westphal, Davis and Martin tore in for gains, and the advance went for two first downs. Here the Army held and Von Heimburg punted to Coffin on his 15-yard line. He was downed in his tracks. Oliphant and Coffin tried the line, but could not gain. Army punted to our 4o-yard line. The advantage of this first skirmish-the trial of strength-lay altogether with the Navy. Would we hold it" A long roar from the Navy stands said we would hold it or bust, and the team, catching the temper: of the Regiment, went into the Fight with tooth and nail. The backs tore in with every ounce they had, and the line strained and fought to throw the Greylegs back, but no material gain was made toward either goal. Muddy and sweating, the teams swayed back and forth, neither seeming able to break down the defense of the other. , It now appeared to be a question of a break of luck. The break came when Coffin lifted a long punt to our ten-yard line. Craig and Davis missed signals, hesitated, and the slippery ball went through Nevvy's arms. Redfield recovered it. The Army made three hard tries at our line but were thrown back. On the fourth down, Oliphant, finding his hole in the line blocked, slipped around end and rolled over for a touchdown. Score: Army 7, Navy o, The Navy stands came up to cheer like men who had scored, and the team responded to that splendid support as only Navy teams know how. During the 383 3-1 wh .aff ' Y' il , Fight, Team, FIGHT! remainder of this period the Navy held the upper hand, but the advantage was more the result of fierce fighting and plain Navy guts than smooth teamwork. The second period opened with an exchange of punts. The Navy then opened a running attack. This offense was distinguished more by the pluck and drive of Craig and Westphal than by the precision and power of the attack. The Army plays were run off with speed and smoothness, but their only telling gains were due to the individual work of Oliphant. Early in the next period, McEwan intercepted a forward pass and carried it zo yards before he was downed by Ward. Here the team made another des- perate stand. The Army made two hard dashes but the line, fighting with every ounce they had, threw them back. Once again Oliphant came to the rescue of the Greylegs' offense, and on the third play he made a beautiful run around end and went over for a touchdown. During the final period the Army held the situation well in hand. Our offense would not carry within striking distance although the team was making a supreme 384 'Y"fi-i..u1:.ga'ea.Q-ef-1f N-" " " - 7--MQ 5' ' -5 If .-----7 ' - ' -icif-' ,Q xflfy?

Somewhere-sometime-somebody said Seven was a lucky number, but it was not alone on the seven that we pinned our hopes-our team, recovering from a mid-season slump, had displayed remarkable ability-we had the fight-the pep-and, last, but not least, the "requisite intelligence." The Squad shoved off Thursday, passing through the Brigade who crowded the Main Gate,crying, "Bring home the bacon, boys," "This time, people, and get the Graylegsf' ad lib. Every man was hoping for-praying for--expecting- a victory. The trip to the Point passed as usual without any undue incidents, save that Hussey came near being put off a mile or so beyond the Short Line bridge for the minor offense of failing to produce a ticket. ln due time this was satis- factorily adjusted and the Chief was allowed to proceed with the team. The car rolled into West Point about ten and a special reception committee came down to meet us, apologizing because they could not turn out the whole corps. The day passed quietly. Clad in Army Gray, some of the gang boarded horses, selected by their hosts-Sherman, Mutt, Eli, and other noted ponies who threw George Washington when he was a cadet. Under the guidance of a cadet escort they made a tour, breaking regulation at every bump. Past Colonels on the gallop, riding catch-asvcatch- can, the cavalcade dashed along in a cloud of dust. "Left Rudder," "Full speed astern," and other nautical commands interspersed with sea-going oaths, fell on the deaf ears of the equines. On they went in a manner that would cause the noble steeds of Paul Revere, Sheridan, et al., to nelgh with envy- The enjoy' "Fuzzy " sets off a good one 387 'in . 2-seats! able afternoon nearly came to a tragic end, when, led by Hammy, the band gave a sea-going version of a Cossack charge. As the hoof-beats fainted into the distance a cadet was heard to say, "l guess l'll have to polish up my tar bucket to-night-the funeral will proba- bly be Monday." A colored trooper rolled his eyes and moaned, "'Fore God dem sailors suttenly am speed boys!" A half hour later they returned, safe and sound, but in the eyes of the horses was a look which said, "What in the devil is on my back?" After practice the squad strolled around and watched the Grayleg in his native heath. The consensus of opinion was: West Point is a fine place-they have some beautiful buildings and a keen bunch of fellows, but er, er--the Navy for mine. The day of the game Cas all accounts of games should beginb gave all indi- """"""""""Ef""" , , cations of perfect playing conditions. 's a' .1 f-L 'f . . pu S an me West Point was crowded with spectators, and as the Navy team was making for the field, here and there in the crowd came shouts of encouragement in voices that we had heard before, as, "Pretty poor, Mr. Gish, somehow you don't seem to grasp this at all." At two o'clock the stands were filled, Army had the field-Neyland shot a few preliminary slants over the rubber-Bubbles Fisher toyed with his bat, straight- ened his cap, hitched his trou, and stepped to the plate-the game was on. Neyland seemed to have his old stuff on the ball with the first two men, but Bud Fisher hit a line drive to left that was an indication of what Neyland might expect later.

Undaunted, Navy came right back and put two men on bases, but Neyland tightened and no damage was done. In the next inning Navy bombarded Neyland with results- two singles, followed by Adams' hit, scored two and Ranney trotted over the plate when Spuds, catching a straight fast one, drove it on a line past Cullum- down the banking and-presumably-into the river, while from the stands a few sea-going voices rolled out, "Large ropes and small blocks! That's what gets them!" Net result-four runs--much excitement-and several near cases of heart failure. Those sitting on the Navy bench could hear the cheers that resounded from the Armory where the Brigade cheered on the Team. .On went the Navy attack, but a pop fly ended the inning. ' The Army, however, not to be outdone, came back. Neyland hit a single and was out stretching it. Gherhardt hit and was caught napping. lvlerrillat caught one of Gyp's fast ones in his ribs and made the circuit when Hobbs' hit rolled through our fielder's legs. Score: Army 4, Navy 4-some game! The fourth-a hit, an error, and two bases on balls, mixed with a well-laid bunt, gave Army two runs and the lead. The Navy still went after Neyland, but failed to produce when "hits meant runs." The game went on to the seventh- full of spectacular plays and situations-and then the Navy rallied. Smith and Fisher hit, a double steal followed, and Smith scored on Adams' hit, Fisher, however, being caught between second and third. With a man on base Hicks drove out a long one to center. Merrillat was off at the crack of the bat. Sprinting at top speed, he speared the ball and ended Navy's rally. All the Pointers sat back in their seats and mopped their foreheads. On the Navy bench every one was on his feet, yelling, "Come on, people, we'll get them yet." And the ninth-the last-ill-starred inning. Bud Fisher doubled down the right field foul line, his fourth hit for the day. Adams hit to Gherhardt, who fumbled, his error saved him, however, for Fisher, who, if the play had gone through, would have taken third, was caught between the bases. McFall batted for Glover and drove a hard rap at Neyland, who tossed Adams out at second. With two down and a man on hrst-with all the breaks against them-Navy died hard, Eeall ran for lVlcFall, took , i E l 5 E x , . -. - : 1 wifi' sa. 4 Spud's Homer 389 if 1 second on Hicks'hitand then took third in the 'V if general confusion, but Strang had called time, as Neyland was wavering, and Beall was sent back to second. This was the third-last-and final slap that Fate gave us. With Hicks on first and Beall on third we were ready-something that we had been saving all the year-the stage set at the crucial moment-and then the curtain dropped. With a man on hrst and second-two down-b-5- every one held his breath-a strike-a ball-the crack of the bat-and then Hobbs circled under the ball and it plunked into his glove. The Pointers burst over the rail and on to the field. Out came the Black and Gold and Gray standard and a swirl- ing mob of gray uniforms celebrated another Army victory. Far away--down in Crabtown--the Brigade left the Armory-downcast- Cfor who enjoys a defeat?j-but proud- ..Gyp., as all the Service had a right to be-of the best team the Navy ever had. But sorrow, like joy, is temporary, and the bunch flocked to the Hop deter- mined to score at least one Navy victory. Midnight came only too early and we strolled back to Cullum, humming gaily, "We'll don the Army Blue." We embarked' in the gray of the morning and sailed away with a Long Corps yell ringing in our ears. Never was a visiting team treated so royally as was our team by the Pointers- true, the fact that both are Service schools tends to strengthen the tie that binds, but this reception was all that could be desired, and then some. The best-looking girls-the gentlest horses-and above all, their personal attention when doubtless they felt like fussing someone more in- teresting than a midshipman-all went to create an impression in our minds that even time cannot eradicate. We disembarked at Crabtown late Sunday afternoon. The Brigade was out to meet us, temporarily hushed by the mandate of the local jefe. Once inside, however, the reception showed that-win- ners or losers-they were the Navy team. 1-he Am 390 I UIDIIVUUD I UWDEIUIUDD ea Ewjkbxw - t to s - 7.1-'TQ -. s A.

Two years ago, when "Frankie" O'Brien gave"Pinafore"and "The Serenade," many thought, "Surely now the limit is reached! Amateurs could never hope to improve on that." And "Skeeter" Wotherspoon realized that a high standard had been established, and that nothing short of the hardest kind of work and application could maintain it. But he came through nobly, with two "legit" productions- "Faeing the Music" and "Seven Days"-both demanding unusual talent and determination for their success. This was precisely the brand of talent and deter- mination which Skeeter had at his disposal, and the result not only maintained the standard, but established Hrmly in the minds of all who took an interest in it that the "Masqueraders" was an organization in which the Regiment might justly take great pride. "Seven Days" went with the ease and precision of a Broadway production.

The impossible had been accomplished, and scoffers were silenced. Such was the situation when " Pop" Cwrosskopf took the helm. He had before him the task of upholding the high standard set by his predecessors-and of doing this with a sadly depleted squad of actors and "actorines." Wotherspoon, Eldredge, Johnny Small, Pigman-these had graduatedg Courtney, the john Drew of " Facing the Music" and "Seven Days," by far the most talented exponent of histrionics the Academy has yet seen, was on sick leave, Van Buskirk, mainstay of the female division, whose bright eyes and fascinating coquetry gave rise to youthful flutter- ings in the breasts of the most self-satisfied old bachelors, was pronounced unavail- able by an unfeeling Academic Board, "Charlie" Crosse was with us, alas, no more. Yet Pop with characteristic aplomb and the incalculable aid of "Patsy" Donavin, refusing to admit that it was too much to expect, undertook to present another farce comedy-" What Happened to jones." This was a hazardous venture for any amateur organization, demanding as it did the undivided attention, time, labor and ingenuity of Pop and all his crew. Several new lights appeared, to replace the departed ones-Selman and Steele in particular earned approbation and congratulation for their spendid work in difficult parts.

But one who has had opportunities to observe the stage gang at work re- "P0P" alizes the unflagging determination, the inexhaustible energy, the perpetual cheerfulness displayedg the enormous difficulties over- come by sheer hard workg the undaunted undertaking of seemingly impossible scenic projects upon a stage which, in the words of Davison, "wouldn't make a good-sized bookshelf." Under the guidance of I-Iorne and I-lussey, the stage gang made possible the Auditorium's new curtain-an object of art and beauty, of which the Masqueraders may well be proudg the idea, the design, the labor-everything but the money-originated in the stage gang. The staging of "Seven Days" would have refiected credit upon the peerless Belasco-but here the individuals who are directly responsible for such things assume no credit for their labor, but prefer to allow all praise to fall upon the organization itself-upon "The Masqueradersn as a whole. The plans for june, at time of writing, contemplate a reversion to the musical comedy-beyond that there is nothing definite. Whatever they put on, it is certain that in their farewell offering Pop and Harold will present a show which in all departments will set a high mark for next year's work under Wainwright and "Red" Cummings. angela' 398 .ff Chaplain Evans Qibapel HE clink of swords and the glitter of gold lace and buttons lend to our chapel service a mar- tial touch that makes it unique. The blase air of the midshipmen causes them to manifest interest in things feminine rather than in matters re- ligious, but the undercurrent of feeling shows itself in the singing of "For Those in Peril on the Sea." Even with this many of the midshipmen do not realize the depth of this feeling until in june they sing "God be with you till we meet again." In spite of the fact that the larger part of the congregation is prevented from hearing the choir, without them a goodly portion of the service would be lost. To Chaplain Evans we owe a great debt for his per- sonal interest in each of us and for his work in repar- ing us to meet the problems of our life in the gervice.

M. - V W' v f X Musical Qiluhs HE development and growth of the Clee and Mandolin Clubs has been both rapid and remarkable. Inspired by the annual entertainments given by these clubs of the Pennsylvania University, the various battalion and class quartets and orchestras combined to form the Musical Clubs which have proved a source of pride and pleasure to the Naval Academy and its friends. Three years ago, the Choir attempted a recital in the Chapel, the first .instance of combined musical talent offered by the Naval Academy for many years: an orchestra, headed by Henry White, comprised the instrumental ability of the Regiment. These, however, formed the nucleus of the present-day organizations. Last year, with the assistance of Instructor Washburn, the Clee Club was founded, while Lieutenant LeBourgeois was directly responsible for the organi- zation and training of the Mandolin Club. The interest stimulated by the coach- ing of these men insured the success of their undertaking, and after the first enter- tainment, given between the acts of the iooth Night performance of the "Mas- queradersf' the Musical Clubs became an institution in the life of the Naval Academy. "Joe" Lawson was elected to lead the Clee Club for the season of Nineteen- Sixteen 3 but his difficulties with "Steam" prevented active work in this line, and the leadership was taken over by Patterson. The leadership of the Mandolin Club fell naturally to Tony Ziroli, and night after night these two worked with their clubs, until at the March concert they produced a program fully as good as any their enthusiastic auditors had heard.

A musician of the greatest talent, a tireless and willing helper, the idol of the musical clubs-and a friend of us all-Professor Zimmerman has made himself an irreplaceable part of the Naval Academy, and Naval Academy life. No per- formance of the "lVlasqueraders,"-no entertainment by the Clee Club-no musical recital of any kind-but owes its success, largely, to the zealous efforts of Professor Zimmerman. Class marches-almost without number--bear his name, among them the never-to-be-forgotten "Anchors Aweigh"-dedicated by him to the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Seven. Never an Army-Navy contest but finds him and his Band-loud in the glory of some new "Navy " composition- among the staunchest supporters of the Blue and Cold. Whatever the Choir is- he has made them-for without Professor Zimmerman there could have been no choir, and it is, indeed, a dreary day for that body when he is not in his seat at the organ. He has been the cornerstone of the recitals in the Chapel, and has made them afternoons welcomed by every music-lover at the Naval Academy, and in Annapolis. Rain or shine-summer or winter-he is always on hand- willing and eager to help the midshipmen in any way, and to help for the sake of helping alone. Professor Zimmerman, the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Sixteen wishes to take this opportunity to express, to some slight degree, their respect, esteem and heartfelt appreciation of your kindness to the Class and to its members.

To Dudley must be given the credit for making it possible for the Editors to make "The Log" as elaborate as their material permitted, regardless of expense, if they could persuade him to loosen up. The receipt of a contribution from anyone outside the Staff was the signal for a general jubilee, while even among the Staff the regularly contributing members were very few. In spite of these difficulties "The Log" has appeared each Friday night, generally good, sometimes excellent, but only their intimate friends know how many times Holcombe and Keliher have heard eight bells of the First Watch while they were still grinding out copy.

Monday - june , 1 Week enters with a 'I' ' rushg the reception to the Board of V Visitorsg a brief ' interval, and then the afternoon drillsg the wheels go round-the Steam Build- ing re-echoes with the sound of riveting hammers and ordinary hammers, all the tools that necessity or ingenuity could devise add their notes to the unearthly din-the feverish activities of joe Gish in driving rivets are contemplated in awe by the Board--such energy-it is remarkable. But his mind is far from the antiquated boiler . . . far from it . . . out on the Lane-just this side of the Bell is a bench-and there she is waiting .... ' On another afternoon the Academy takes to the sea. Cutters--half-raters- cat-boats-even the staid Robert Center and the Argo sprout wings and sail -past the Board, ensconced in solemn state on the poop of the Riena. The remainder of the week is a maze of drills and dress parades -- each fol- lowed by its quick change of costume . . . and then the Lane. The Regi- ment displays its tactical ability in infantry-sham battle-followed by a snappy artil- lery drill-out blaze the field pieces for the last time.

The Superintendent advances, on his arm is the Lady of the Colors, a short speech- brief, halting-little said but much meant -the colors are thrust into the hands of the lucky three-striper-the cheers follow and the ceremony is history.

We swam thee as plebelings, we rowed thee as well' We sailed thee and steamed thee and thought it was hellg We started from thee on our Hrst summer cruise- Tliy crabs with us floated for what we should lose. In heavenly june we thy bosom did float, In saucy half-rater or tipsy catboatg We showed to our ladies thy Queen Mercedes And watched thy quaint oyster smacks quake in the breeze.

Ah! ne'er in thy usefulness marked we a lull. -e.,.,, Oh Severn, sweet Severn, we're leaving you now, With mem'ries of Dago and dear johnny Gow, We'll drop a salt tear in thy leisurely stream- Flow on, gentle Severn, we'll let others dream. 21 iIBerfett EBay Today's my Jonah day, I guess, I certainly have made a mess-all recitations meals and drills, say, take me up and feed me pills. It started in when morning broke-I hit the pap e'er I awoke. My breakfast, prunes and scrambled eggsg a curse upon my hollow legs! At eight o'clock I went to Steam-a ray of hope did feebly gleam until I drew the fatal slip that left me limp like hen with pip. At ten Imeekly went to -juice, still faint protesting "What's the use?" The hour wore on-of course I burst-the prof he did his wonted worst. At lunch, just like a little lamb, I ate my plate of beans and ham, too down and out to give a damn. The afternoon brought Seamanship, sixty pages at a clip-my section split and I got Nance, and he my quivering frame did prance. The orgy ended, o'er the bunk I climbed to get my swimming trunkg for, yes, the drill for us was gym-and Jonas tore us limb from limb. At last, a-sweat from pore to pore, the ghastly swimming drill was o'er, and panting, pale, demented, weak, did I in bed oblivion I seek. Ah! sleep divine! but all too I short-again I mounted the report, , no pity lurks within these walls-I -o g g A swear e'en life upon me palls. The "'-"7 supper hour, I hoped to eat a spud or two, mayhap some meat-I smelled as much e'er I sat down, but 'twas for training table bound. And in the eve when man shall rest, at his and only his behest, the routine grim prescribed more yet-prepare, prepare for Olivet! This Navy life sure gets my goat-my resignation I have wrote, and now in happier mood I feel-l'm bound to Carvel for a meal! 414 ',i1-."Z'L ---- ? h- W :ww ll I X Al 5 W 'lA lAIh SQXWX ...is - is1Hv2if"3fT'f g .ff' .

The city itself is beautiful-one of the most beautiful and one of the most quaint and picturesque cities of the world. Its paved streets and extensive side- walks, ornamented with projecting door-steps, its spacious private homes, its magnificent public buildings, all combine to set the standard of civic beauty for the United States. Here are located venerable St. Johns, great , collections of historic, scientific and artistic value, and the most important library in Maryland. Annapolis is the seat of the State government, where may be observed history in the making, as well as that already made. The local theatres afford dramas, concerts and operas rendered by the most renowned artists of the films. Each year there are hundreds of lectures on all subjects of interest at the different institutions and at the many conventions that assemble. Thus Annapolis is the States center of government, of civic beauty, of social and intellectual affairs, and a residence here must inevitably broaden a young man's sympathies, deepen his interests, and give him a wider outlook upon life. The name "Annapolis" has been synonymized into "Crabtown," com- memorating the activities and tendencies of its inhabitants. Crustaceans and all other fresh sea foods and dainties are found here in profusion. All of the families of Crabtown are of long standing in the community, and with it have let the world wag on without disturbing their peace, the civilization bids fair to outstrip that of China in the course of the next century. Years of experience have made one thing clear-that for a residence school to obtain the best results a suburban location affords more opportunities than one in the city itself. Here boys may live more free and wholesome lives than would be possible in town, here arti- ,au ' ficial restrictions are not needed, and the , , moral nature is placed in an atmosphere flflll' , I 5 as favorable to it as are the country A 1 fl environments to the physical being.

With such facilities we are able to make the fullest use of the city's social attractions and educational ad- vantages, and at the same time we avoid its distracting and disintegrating influences, gaining in their stead a quiet, unfettered life in a seaside lo- cation of dignified traditions and noble beauty. -In I84Q George Bancroft, then Secretary of the Navy, managed by means of much diligent lobbying to secure appropriations for the founding and mainte- nance of a Naval Academy, on the site of Old Fort Severn. The original plot has been added to since then, and one of the newest buildings, Bancroft Hall, is a triumph in modern dormitory construction. Each student has his own study room, bedroom, and bath 3 and the table d'hote restaurant, store, tailor shops, laun- dry, and cobbler shop-a regular business district-are contained in the basement. In this building are also located the Reception, Reading and Recreation Rooms, Memorial Hall, and two smoking rooms on each floor, with an additional larger room for the exclusive use of the senior class. In two wings, directly attached, are the Armory, and Gymnasium with Natatorium. Adjacent, upon the campus, stand the private residences of the faculty, who are thus in constant touch with the schools daily life. The equipment throughout is excellent. Heat is distributed by the well- known vapor system, from two boilers, each one of which is capable of performing an amount of work equal to that done by the other, all the buildings have both hot and cold steam pipes and electric plumbing. Special attention is called to the supply of artesian water, which has been pronounced by Government chemists to contain exceptionally pure magnetic ferric oxide. The grounds are more than sixty acres in extent, and are bisected by Maryland Avenue, the most important thorough- fareof Annapolis. Artistically planted trees and shrubbery enhance the natural beauty of the place. There are courts for tennis and basketball, and a golf course of nine holes. With such location and 3-""'I"' 0 equipment, the Naval Acade- .I , R, M my may rightly claim particu- QQ ' , lar consideration from parents It who desire for their sons the best and most wholesome sur- roundings. 417 kr I . n. . 4 ' -1 E mlrii' fav 5 f Q E 1-1-I K5 I ' .E r- vslfllllgl 0 E WMI" ff, ,lou el: ' y nn-wins W aayy' : Vswyyw X AM In E - P+ E U c 4 5 I Quorum of I 6'ofwvzcr1a,v-r - Ferl. 76 I -1 I ,g,rn.opxo Vflrv E E , lf f W4AMfMfl 5 W ff?

The class of nineteen sixteen went aboard the Illinois, And when the get together the 're a jolly bunch of boys, They touched at Igluropean ports anti, went to Paris too, And it certainly was disgraceful the way the cherries flew. Before we start to tell you tales about our summer cruise, We first would like to break to you some very pleasant news, It's just a list of Navy men, the best in all the land, Who changed a class of worn-out plebes into a happy band. The Skipper was the prince of men and always did his best, ' To show us that as midshipmen, we certainly were blest, His cheerful smile and pipe of peace, the welcome in his eyes, Are chief among the reasons why we praise him to the skies. The fellows all laid aft to have n talk with the Exec, And asked him if they couldn't take a cutter off the deck, "Oh hell," said he, "You've rowed enough in Crabtown-on-the-Bay, So we will can that line of bull and take a holiday." Sears, divisional oflicer, of whom the saying's true, "Gunpointers, trainers, fall out, also the turret crew, Handling crews will lay below and wrestle with the shell, You'd better change to dirty works you'll find it hot as hell. In Antwerp Bagley had the deck, and pacing up and down, He spied a bunch of pretty maids just in from Brussels town, Then Simpson grabbed his glasses and said, "How is it, Dave, To allow me to relieve you? Femininity I crave." Of princes in the Navy there aren't an awful lot, But of them all we know, Wilcox is Johnny-on-the-spot, ' He said, "You've written half a page, it's pretty hard so quit it." l We believe his home's in heaven, and he's only here to visit. 420 ........, ,..... . .. ......., I ,QV , A ...,...... . .... .... ..,. ...... x . .... . . l 'nn' ,.... .,... ... ...... . ...... ..

'lhe Skipper said, "'I his -good old practice must be kept alive, So we'll start to selling Bull again, two packages for Five." Then there's little Junior Smith-the Captain's valued aid, When one day's leave was asked for, some good advice he made, "You'd better make it three days and stay awhile ashore, You only want ten dollars? You'd better take ten more." And when we weighed our anchor 'twas the eighth day of june, From what the youngsters told us we expected hard work soon, But thoughts of seeing foreign countries made us awfully glad, And the Skipper proved to be the best the Navy ever had. Other classes told us we were sure to find it tough, Said that in about a week we'd find we had enough, Swore that we would have to coal until the ship was full, But we soon found out that all that talk was nothing more than bull. Three days out and we haven't hit a lick, Some of the fellows are feeling mighty sick, Smoking parlor in the head and poker in the hold, Oh, gang around you brodies for the beer is getting cold. Ten days more and we sight the Azores gray, We don't know much about the place because we didn't stay, We only got one look at. them, thank God we got no more, For we all were getting anxious for the European shore. After sailing Fifteen days we sighted Antwerp town, The place in all its glory came to see us bring her 'round, The Captain brought the ship about and slid her to the shore, ln a manner that the Antwerp bloods had never seen before. We all got on the forecastle and were scrubbing out our works, The Skipper paced upon the bridge and smoked his pipe in jerks, Said he to Buck, "Upon my soul, this sight it warms my heart,' So he hocked the ship in Antwerp and he let us all depart. And when we struck old Antwerp we were treated mighty line, First they asked us out to lunch and afterwards to dine, They plied us with the best of booze and filled us with champagne, And we sure do hope sincerely that we'll hit that town again. Oh it's lay below and get your blues and spruce up nice and neat, And do your best, my jolly lads, there's a banquet there to eat. And all the bloods of Antwerp have gathered there to-night, To see us keep four glasses dry and keep from getting tight. 421 f 25 I X A lp X X J X K I x t , ' , I . is . 1 . f X.. .W .l., A32 lin,-!V ' M.

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. Toot! Toot! fwhistlej the train for Brussels is starting down the track, The glorious Fourth is here at last, we're never coming back. The minister received us and took us all to dine With fifteen courses on the bill and fourteen kinds of wine. And next we went to Vigo on the shores of sunny Spain, They haven't got a sewer, they never use a drain, No signs are needed in this town, when the way you wish to tell You walk up to a corner, then use your sense of smell. One afternoon in old Cadiz, the youngsters went ashore, To see a Spanish bull-fight, three pesetas at the door, The matadores they killed six bulls, 'twas surely worth the trip, But to see them really roll the bull, why stay aboard the ship. At Gib we hired a private yacht and sailed for old Tangiers, And sat down in the cabin, smoking skags and guzzling beers, The sky was clear, the weather fine, altho' the Straits were choppy. And when the ship had reached the shore, the decks were awfully sloppy. Madeira was a garden spot, and grew all kinds of stuff, Of women, wine and joyful song, there always was enough, So we basked in dark-eyed glances, and we downed the sparkling wine, And we'd do the same thing over, if we went another time. One evening after sunset, we were all upon the deck, They brought the good ship hard about and headed for a speck, It looked just like an open boat, way out there in the gale, W Y But when we came alongside it was nothing but a whale. We never manned the ash-whips and we never rowed ashore, We-never coaled the blooming ship or pulled a bally oar, The only kick we have to make when all is done and said, The fifth week out they made us knock off smoking in the head. 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, For the cruise of nineteen sixteen on the good ship Illinois.

O.'s Midshipmen First Lieutenant Firemen Ward Room Officers O. S. - Synopsis A cruise to Europe is planned for the purpose of familiarizing the midshipmen with the duties which they will assume as officers of the American Navy. This cruise takes place in the Summer of IQI4 from June 6th to September zd, the Bri- gade of Midshipmen being assigned berths on the U. S. S. "Missouri," "Illinois" and 'fldahof' The story concerns that contingent quartered on the last named vesse . Act I. Scene I.-A mad clamor and "after the ball is over" atmosphere -a dawning realization of what is soon to come. Scrubbing decks, polishing bright work and spitkits accompanied by periods of instruction which did not instruct and drills which did nothing but drill. Sea sickness and vain regrets. Scene II. Morocco and Spain. A brief respite, but far too brief-with dis- appointing liberties and a predominance of coaling, cleaning, and swearing. Scene III. Italy. The wonderful bay and city of Naples, the latter seen between the hours of four and six forty-five of the afternoon. Same story of scrub- bing and bright work in the early morning hours. Scene IV. Gibraltar. Same thing. Nothing to do but work, nothing to breathe but air. The heart-rending scene of separation wherein the "Idaho" wit- nesses the departure for Gravesend of the "Missouri" and the "Illinois," Orders for the "Idaho" to Villefranche. A slight relaxation ftom the nervous tension and general depression. 426 .- xyihi X I IE-Ay W QM, if !IlM X i ' I yqfriiiii.

The world assumes a brighter aspect in the sunny environment of the Riviera. The gambling scene at Monte Carlo, mysteries of the Alps with glimpses of Paris, Interlaken, Geneva and Marseilles, and the life of the Nicois, offer a pleasant diversion from the drab surrounding and actions hitherto experienced. Scene VI. Villefranche. Preparations for transfer of complement from"Idaho" to "Maine." Deck scrubbing and bright work polishing reaches its climax. Raw handsfrom handlingstores and ammunition. Arrival of U. S. S."Maine." Transfer of lockers, stores and ammunition. Dirt. "Idaho" turned over to Greeks at colors july goth, when American ensign is lowered and Greek ensign hoisted. I-Ienceforth the Greek ship AIIMNOZI QLEMNOSJ. Act II. Scene I. Villefranche. U. S. S. "Maine." The only consolation of the Summer due to the comfort of the "Idaho" as a ship is withdrawn, with the "Maine" in vivid contrast. Stowing of supplies, cleaning, scrubbing, polishing. Russia declares war on Germany, Germany on France, England on Germany, after which the count is lost. Still we scrub. Still we swear. Scene II. At sea. Approached by French destroyer, with three others in distance. I-larrowing escape from collision with two huge French dreadnoughts while searchlights play on American ensign of U. S. S. "Maine." A dawning appre- hension concerning September leave. Scene III. Gibraltar. Escorted into harbor by English destroyers. Anchor and sixty-Eve fathoms of chain lost, adding another means of pastime to the world-old sports of scrubbing, coaling and cleaning, namely, dragging for the lost treasure. Searchlight kept on ship constantly during the night. Change of scene to Tangier, where apprehension which dawned in previous scene attains the full glare of midday leading up to last scene and grand Finale. Scene IV. Mad scene on madhouse "Maine," the result of three long months of action in which the climax was approached. Fresh water famine, starboard engine breaks down, as do the midshipmen and other unimportant bits of ma- chinery. From Gibraltar through the deepest realms of despair and torture, Chesapeake is finally reached four days after the arrival and disembarkation of the other two remnants of the regiment. GENERAL CRITICISM The plot and general theme is obviously the work of a master hand. Scrub- bing, polishing and coaling scenes, however, predominate to such a degree that the other more important phases lose the greater part of their identity. The con- trast in the condition of the midshipmen before and after their memorable voyage displays the talent of a genius. Scenes apparently intended to be similar, as those at Naples and at Nice and Monte Carlo, point to the conclusion that different hands formed them. Though slightly alike in general trend, their actual execution furnishes a contrast rather than a similarity. , The latter scenes on the Riviera show a gratifying departure from the plan governing such scenes earlier in the play. The purpose of the expedition as ex- plained in the prologue was evidently lost sight of, unless a thorough knowledge of deck-scrubbing and coaling to the exclusion of nearly all else, could be regarded as the duties therein mentioned. 427 'A tiff 1A ' 2 N Q ' H i d ler:-of ,111 ,R R I ip U 'QF-Q px -f -I X Q ' N L -W e ii of-fewg, ig! . f7 f-ef., 1 'qmgll 5553, 4- - I ..

Vg 4 by Zgrams is iiimg TOM KELIHER EFTLY seizing a piece of chalk with his thumb and forefinger, he blows the dust from it, writes "Keliher" in the NE corner of his board, and faces the prof with an attitude of "Bring on your dogs." Assigned a subject he savvies thoroughly, he turns nonchalantly about, makes a few minute notes on the board, and then sums up the subject in a few well-chosen sentences. That done he faces the prof with an air of "So simple." Called upon to recite, he elucidates from his summary, delivering his sentences with the rapidity of a Benet Mercie. Should the subject be one that he does not savvy he makes no change in his tactics. Questioned about his sketch he faces the board-feet apart-blowing into his closed left hand-thinks deeply for a moment-and then turns to the prof and shoots his explanation, punctuating it with staccato rappings on the board with his chalk. In either case the result is the same-Tom sits down with a smile of triumph and at least a 3.9 to his credit. 7 7: Sir, will you explain something to me about this curve-fire device? Prof Cwearilyj: What is it? ?

Now the time between blasts is so short that a ship W I can go several hundred yards between them. .- Therefore the intervals should be cut down somewhat to prevent collisions at sea. Another thing about fogs is that they have very peculiar acoustic properties. You may lis- ten over the starboard bow for the blast of a whistle and hear it over the port beam. So it is best not to put too much confidence in what you hear in fogs at sea, but an engineer is now at work perfecting an apparatus which will tell the true direction of fog signals.

Ball T was the night of the annual function at the palace-all the nobility turned out that evening-counts, dukes and the lesser fry with all their noble spouses and progeny-decked to the ears with the accumulated trappings of centu- ries, draped themselves gracefully around the royal furniture, casting ever anxious eyes at the arras from behind which came sounds of table gear. Count Rudolph- whose methods were famed for their finesse-was among those who graced the brilliant gathering. Great Balls of Fire !-how my heart yearned for that comely villain. l was quite taken with the idea of marrying the devil, but father was for unceremoniously ejecting the bounder. Whereupon all gave vent to loud guffaws save the Dowager Queen alone-but her disposition was that of cruise 'iinrh Qtbumleigh L Lord Chumleigh was rather partial to Mumm's Veuve Clicquot, etc., and to the fairer sex. Hence, neglecting somewhat his filial duties to the elder lord, his father, and to the Dowager Lady Chumleigh, in his pursuit of pleasure, his fond parents conceived the idea of removing his darling face from the environs of Piccadilly, Pall Mall, etc., by the simple device of sending him to Canada. Alas! When he had arrived in Canada, he soon took up pastimes which far exceeded the harmless idiosyncrasies of his former days, but it is a fact that his participation in these pastimes was to such a degree that his memory forsook him, and having forsaken him, he quite forgot to pursue them, and, to quote from the Strand Gazette: "Lord Chumleigh recently returned from an extended visit to Manitoba, being quite recovered in health, and is doing very, very well." Dear Lord Chumleigh. butter! Cibange the gaamt of Qrkansas Mr. Speaker! Mr. Speaker! Blast your onery hide, l've been trying to get your eye for the last twenty minutes, and every time l've caught it you've wiggled and twisted like a dog with a flea that he can't reach. And you'd change the name of Arkansaw? You long-eared, snaggle-toothed, knock-kneed son of a sea cook! You cockeyed, hook-nosed, string-haltered, pigeon-toed wart on the nose of per- dition! Why, I was eighteen years old before I had a new suit of clothes, and they were made of jacob Reeds midshipman special! Compare the perfumed powder of Ed. Pinaud with a dish of mess-hall slum, the shining glare of the noonday sun with the feeble glimmer of a lightning bug, the mighty physique of a Roman gladiator to the puling effeminacy of a Peruvian prince, the classic strains of Mozart to the bray of a Mexican burro, and your crime would be no more heinous than your proposal to change the melodious name of Arkansaw. You may kill the king and abduct the queen, light your skag at the torch of the Goddess of Liberty, but change the name of Arkansaw?

Suddenly the door is Hung open. A heavy Horid person rushes in. I-Ie is a man of harsh and savage manner-evidently a driver of slaves or an oppressor of children. I-le thrusts a finger through the ice. I-Ia! 'Tis good -an entropy of 4600 below absolute zero. "Come down," he bellows, "come down, you lilies. The last man grips an extra lap. I want to see who the first man is and I want to see the last man." ' The unfortunates file in, each quite bare except for a towel around his loins. "All right-line upg the first number is a grand race-8 laps." They Hop in. Bill Casey sinks at once. The Old Man, magnihcent even in the nude, weakens. "Oh sir, this water is so cold." He clutches for the rail. "Clit in, you hot-house plantg do your laps." The lilies wheeze back and forth for eight tortuous laps. With a last dying gasp the first ones clutch the rail and start to drag themselves out. "Get back there, you Lord Fauntleroysg bear a hand and finish those laps. Stand by for a lap under water. All right, shove off." The submarines reach the other side in a sinking condition. No rest for the weary. "Back you comeg git off that rail, you Babes in the Wood. Crawl out here and line up, you flappers--everyone dives." With sickening-splashes they hit the water and struggle to the surface only to be greeted with a continuation of the torture. The clock drags around to 6.10. "You'd better bear a hand and get off this squad if you want to graduate. Git out o' here, now."

For, sayl breathes there a man with soul so dead Who never to himself doth formulate Plans and excursions for th' approaching time When there is something doing constantly- f And something new and novel-something which He hath not done before?

Yet, for that he may learn To prize this gift and cherish it till death, It shall not come to him within a day Nor in a thousand days-but he shall strive And work and labor for it, through Nine hundred weary years-yet at the last, When to his hand the prize hath been delivered, His joy shall be unbound, and he shall praise 441 --2--f L, 4 ,V xf NQXO swim ? -ix tu 4 - t , , 4 . -1 f i is ,fmH""'92 T50 I imqsn 'AZ' i n I v f hflpfff' I '?

Yet At first and straightway, to him shall befall A single glimpse of that for which he prays, For that he may be faithful to the quest. Now go, my son-thy wish shall live-Kismet!" Then rose the Wizard up, and went his way, And in his heart was joy, and praise of Allah. ll' 1 Ii l li ll' 41 Now as he journeyed thus, upon a sudden He found himself within a maddened crowd Of blue-clad and gesticulating men Within an amphitheatre, whereof the seats Were of the hardest woodg and for that cause The people all stood upright and were savage. And all their threats were hurled against a man Who had foreseen the mob's antipathy, For that he wore great pads upon his frame, and wore A mask or helmet all of steel and wire. Thereat the Seer, Filogub the Sleuth, According to his custom, bent his energies To seek the why of thisg wherefore he asked Of one beside him: "Allah bless thee, brother! Canst thou unriddle me this riddle here? Methinks 'tis plain why all men stand, but why Are all their weird and awful oaths directed At yonder harmless object? Did he make The seats which now they scorn?" The man replied, With glance of half distrust and half derision: "Nay, 'tis the seventh inning-and that man Is but the umpire." Whereupon the Sage Did marvel greatly, but said nothing more, for then He realized these were things beyond his ken. ek wr 41 wa 4- , if nr Again he found himself one of a multitude Seated within a pitg while on a dais There danced and sang with wild abandoned glee A group of male chorines. The Sage observed That powder, paint, and wire, and cotton wads Had been profusely used, withal to cover A multitude of sins. The noises ceased, Whereat the people showed their disapproval Of dance and song by clapping with the hands. The Sage with right goodwill did join therein And smote his palms together with a thund'rous clap, Thus thinking to discourage further antics. But to his great amaze, back in they trooped And went once more through their whole repertoire. Then turned he to his neighbor, saying low: "Brother, may Allah bless theel Who are these That in the face of censure and reproof Return again repeating all their crime?" The one addressed turned to him with a leer: "Go to, thou hayseed. Know'st thou not that these Are Masqueraders? And that noise we made Is not a mark of censure or reproof, But one of approbation, and it means Encore! Againl Again!" F ll i 1 K 1' ll 442 A X 'Q vr 'ww -cf' ' As in a daze, the Wizard found himself Amid an ever-shifting maze of men and women- Men all in white, and some with shoulder-straps, And women gowned as were those goddesses Of whom the poet Glumbateman hath said "Want little here below, nor want it long." And over all soft music swayed and throbbed- The while the apparitions twisted in Most violent contortions. Suddenly The Sage perceived a figure at his side- A female voice within his ear, which said "Don't you intend to ask me for a dance?" The Seer straightway saw and seized the chance The myst'ry to unravel, and he asked Of her who in the shimm'ring garment basked: "Why do these persons twist and squirm and sway In rhythmic revel till the coming of the day?" The damsel wore a broad, coquettish grin To supplement the costume she was ing Replied with lilting laugh and eyes aglow: "Ohl Mr. Filo, ain't you funny, though! It's your June Ball-you surely ought to know!" lk ik at if ll' lk Sli The Seer stood before a mighty dome, All golden in the sun, with streaks of white. And as he gazed, he knew the same sensation That he had felt before, when in a ship He ventured once upon the stormy sea- But this forgot, when from the edilice There issued forth a crowd of men and women- A chatt'ring crowd, and in their chatt'ring midst A youth with beaming, sheepish face, who looked As though he half regretted what he'd done, And with him walked a damsel by his side At sight of whom the people loudly cried "Give gangway, uncle-for here comes the Bride!" 4' if 'll ll' lk Ulf FK Then Filogub awoke, and found that he With head bowed low, still sat within his rent. He straightway fell upon his knees and cried: " Commander of the Faithful, Lord of All, Allah the Merciful, Thy way is best. I asked for that which Thou alone can'st give- To see into the future at my will, But Thou hast shown me many things so strange- So weird and awful, I am powerless E'en to describe them. Lord, but let me now Rest evermore content with my own day." Then Allah smiled within His Beard, and knew He'd done precisely what He'd meant him to. ll' ii Ill ll' Ulf 'lf ik And now, oh CHIEF, the feared of all thy crew, Shall I assay what Fila could not do? For who am I, that thou should'st sternly seek To make me write of Graduation Week? 443 .i f N XB ,ww W4 fy li, A 'Q' ii WV .ls f 1 ., r l - . ..,. - '-- .f O.

CDe Quincy, jr.j, business manager of same C i. e., Lucky Bag, not I-Iusseyj-attired in cream-colored bathrobe-sits around with an expression which is a mixture of " lt's a pity she's married" and "When l'm in the Army." Sternberg-supposedly an artist, but in reality helping out a friend of his in Baltimore, who owns a "cigar" factory. Bagby-also supposedly an artist-conversation mostly on "those coyotes"- showing his teeth arranged in open order. Horne--' 'The Childe Harold"-lending other people cigarettes-saying little -trying to look single. Emerson-the leading lady-puts himself on one chair, his abdomen on another and reads Red Book, Cosmo, etc. Holcombe-with the air of just dropping in for a minute, and uttering between puffs "Darn that Log"-plays mandolin, Tessie the Inebriate's Offspring, etc.- on which all save Hussey join in-Hussey being Manager of the Glee Club. Keliher-The relentless critic--chiefly destructive-affects a G. B. Shaw air and reviles everyone, especially Davison-explodes periodically from excess repartee. Miles-the Staff Misogynist, leader of the opposition to the Trained Seals. On occasions-other Staves from the other wing-Bourne, jones, Dague, Hardison, Lawson and Bateman. Scene-Lucky Bag Office.

CNOTE.-To explain this last remark of Mr. Bagby's, which really was made, the Editor would beg to state that Dudley is Business Manager of the Log and hence supplies all advertising copy.

A A Qltknnmlehgments The,Staff of the Lucky Bag, 1Ql6, take this opportunity to express their appreciation of the cordial assistance in the production of this book by many friends, notably:- Ivliss Susan Craven, who painted the heading typifying the Spirit of june Week. Miss Ruth Littell in her clever painting of the Class Ring C-irl. Miss Constance Brady, whose drawing of a Class Girl appears on page 239. Mr. joseph C. Coll, whose touch is felt on every page and without whose work this Lucky Bag would have been a bare recital of events. Lieutenant Commander Gannon, U. S. Navy, for his courteous handling of the many requests made of him in his capacity as Executive Officer. The Howitzer, IQI6, for the use of several photographs. Mr. Robert Bennett, of the White Studio, for his unfailingly prompt and courteous treatment of the demands upon the resources of his firm. Mr. Elliott Brewer, of the A. H. Sickler Company, who is responsible not only for the mechanical finish of the book, but also for a number of the ideas worked out therein. The Brigade as a whole and the Class of iqib in particular, for their cordial interest and, in many instances, substantial aid. The Editor-in-Chief desires to thank the Staff, individually and collectively, for their loyal co-operation in the carrying through of the work and especially in those tasks which have left no visible mark on the Bag. lt were unfair to mention one as deserving of more credit than another, but he cannot refrain from adding a word for Davison who, far from confining himself to his stipulated duties, has been a constant and valuable aid in all branches of the work. 447 1 wr? f 4 V, .
