Books — at least text books — have been among the least of George ' s worries. Nevertheless he always ranks among the sat and savvy, and in addition to maintaining for himself a little velvet has managed with fair success tc. keep " Bill " from perching too far aloft when one or more of the departments insisted on f rapping him high and dry. Among other things, his work as cheer leader First Class year did much to endear him to the class and the Regi- ment. What the little hard guy lacks in size he makes up in pep, and while the team seldom needed an extra hard squeeze for a tew extra points, George has always helped keep the noise rolling out of the stands in a way that went home. . lthough he told his skipper First Class cruise that the ril)bon he wears was a campaign badge for the Battle of Vorktown, we all know that on dress occasions a life- saving medal hangs from it. But then, modesty was always one of George ' s numerous virtues. Wherever he goes his messmates will find him a cour- ageous, efficient officer and a good pal.

" Bill " y - HE third of a trio of seagoing, football-playing I ) brothers, " Bill " elected to enter and graduate with ' ' 2(1, and fortunate it was for ' iO that he did so. As Class President, his hand has proved a steady one to hold the destinies of the class in the straight and narrow. . s Five-striper, he has proved an ideal of efficient military leadership. As a football player— well, if Walter Camp had ever seen him in action even the . ll-. merican w ould n ' t have been good enough. He was fitted in every way to captain the team and that honor is his natural and fitting reward. As a crew man the N-crossed oar bespeaks his prowess. He plays lacrosse, too, but admits it s only to keep in condition. Last and by no means least, as a man— the real two- legged he-animal — " Bill " rates them all. Younger than many of his classmates, he still has an oldish and wonder- fully wise bean atop his classical physique — a marvelous grasp of human nature and mob psychology that has made his rule a firm and still a pleasant one. You go forth from us, " Bill, " with a record none can approach. Respect and love of every man of us are yours — respect as a man and a gentleman, love as a classmate and friend .

His transformation from cow puncher to blase sea dog has been in doubt some times, but now seems to be a matter of fact. Ah therel " ' Dizzy! " Argument seems to be his long suit, and if he can ' t heave the heaviest line he ' 11 offer to settle it with the gloves .«» .■♦ He had easy enough going Plebe year with the academic hounds, but lost most of his momentum Youngster year, due to his too easy acceptance of things as they came. Thanks to an ability to bone strenuously at the last minute, he ' s still with us. The " Kid " first burst into prominence when he dragged on Lover ' s Lane about the time of Plelje semi-ans. He received more attentions from then on than he knew what to do with, but it seems he has been successful in passing the buck since he passed the transition period. Always a devotee of Lady Nicotine, he had quarters reserved for him on the Reina Youngster year. For all his faults " Monty " has no small number of friends and promises to come up to their expectations. fl " Sorry, but I can ' t. I m on the grade. " Honors: Clean Sleer OB ' S " a quiet chap, something like the radius gyration — it ta kes a long time to really know him. Once you do, though, you find him altogether worth while s» .■ » He strolled in one day when Plebe summer was nearly over, jumped into khaki, and Ijraced the D. O. for ten feet of skirmish line to lash his strong bo.x. He " s been with the bonnie bunch ever since in more ways than one. Fussing has n ' t seemed to appeal to him much since a certain memorable instance. He claims that the sport is incommensurable with the trouble. But you " 11 always find him in the stag line. He does n ' t particularly shine in his classes, but " Cunny " usually manages to come through, maybe with a 3.0 average. The English profs fell for the smooth line and contributed toward the general average for a while, but they came to, when he back-slid and began to bone Math. Once or twice the Academic Department got his name and number, but he burned a few extra calories, raised a little more steam and slipped away in the excitement of the chase. f j " Bob " has a well-developed sense of humor that bids fair to tide him over many a rough situation. But he ' s such a nice fellow all in all. that, taken earnestly, he " s boimd to rise in the service. Honor.f: Buzzard; Expert Rifleman. William Johnston Stkother, Jr. CULPEPER, Va.

The Culpeper Exponent has always been his preference to " Studies in Structure and Style. " Once some fair femme told him that he was good-looking, but we are glad to say that he did n ' t believe her. He has been a prominent figure at some rare parties since we have known him and we hear fabulous rumors of him on Sep leave. When his angora is led forth he is a terror afloat; ask any one who was with him in the Union Station in Washington Plelie Christmas leave s» .

' Bat " " Tur-rnah T.W " J HE bird who wrote, " I ' m a Tarheel born, I ' m i ' Tarheel bred, and when I die, I ' 11 be a Tarheel dead, " sure must have been thinking of " Bat " when he did it, for North Carolina has never had a truer or more loyal son than this seagoing chap with the ferocious name. He ' s a Southerner all the way thru and has the fact written all over him. He is lazy, easy-going, generous and as good natured as a young pup; it ' s his pure good fellowship, though, that makes him an ideal shipmate, for " Bat ' s " a " regular " fellow, with a heart as big as a collier ' s fender. He has been known to bone, b it only when perched on the Christmas tree or May pole. He ' s not wooden by a skull-full, but his preference for entertaining fiction and writing letters over Math and .Juice has placed him in that happy-go-lucky class which never worries, one way or the other. i His specialty is shooting that line of his to some queen who is kmd enough to listen to it. But, to give the devil his due, he seems to get away with it " sumpin terrible. " f Before Youngster Sep leave, it was a new one every month, but since then — well, he s had heart trouble almost as bad as possible and still stay sat. fl " Bat ' s " good points are far and away in excess of his bad ones, but both combine to make him one of the most likeable and one of the best of scouts. ■ ' Johnny.

' At times — Charlie says so, and Charlie saw him at the Class Supper. But when the " Judge " gets digni6ed it s time to regard him with suspicion. To come down to hard facts, the Irish in " Wally " gives him a determination that makes him say what he thinks, and do as he says. When we want good, sound advice, " AVally " has it to offer. As class secretary he has showered that good advice upon us and be it said to his credit, when the necessity was stringent, he literally crammed it down our throats. fl Wartime made his regime as football manager a difficult one, but the season he steered the schedule revived more of the real old Navy spirit than had been in evidence since Plebe Year Army-Navy game.

F. V. " Now we don ' t know whether he is one or not, but we have our suspicions, and we do know that if we were all as good men as he — mentally, morally, and physically (not spiritually) — we would be on the road to success. fl He thinks he can play football, and it is admitted that if he had not been hurt he would have made liis " N " Plebe year. He is vice-president and general man- ager of the Radiator Club and at one time stood a good chance of being one of Mr. Mang ' s favorites in the Wed- nesday afternoon sports. ! He has had more than his share of liad luck on the athletic field and in the section rooms, but on board ship Charlie is the man when something is to be done .•♦ .i» The girls all fall for liim and where " Mr. Woodson " shows his shining face, there is no chance for anj one else. A snake from the word go; he can balance a tea cup and a piece of crke with so much ease and grace, that Chevalier Bayard himself would give up in disgust. He soon found that he could not keep a girl in the Navy and swore that he would be a Red Mike, but the c.dl of the te i pot was too strong. In spite of his faults and virtues, " we love him dearly.

That curly shock ot hair matched with blue eyes and a fascinating grin (don ' t place too much faith in the front elevation given aliove, because he never looks that simple when he ' s fussing) make " ' Thad " simply instantaneous. How many lirokcn hearts he has left in old Missouri pinmg for his return, we may never know j» " Thad " won ' t tell but he admits there ' s quite a number ot them s» .«» fl " Swabo " is a hard egg. You just can ' t subjugate him. He ' s never restless except during study hours and then you can hear him all up and down the corridor, either de- manding a skag or denouncing the authorities in none too mild terms. Despite these activities he manages to get in about thirteen minutes a day of solid boning. He is not averse to trapping a bush now and then, and occasionally sees red when the monthly marks go up. " Swabo " would do anything for a friend except give him his last piece of pie, and he ' s a dead game sport . ' • He ' d even smoke a Home Run if you offered it to him.

Mo. ■ ' Red " " Mac " " Coo-mo " [ A( ' " is the sad bird who, in a fit of passion, heaved I shoe blacking brush at a picture of his " fairest, " thereby demolishing glass, frame, and complexion. Still, one disappointment did n ' t phase him. and he attends every hop, Ijum-drip-dripping faithfully to the strains of the " Dark Town Strutters Ball. " One thing that " Coo-Coo " does n ' t believe in is over exertion. The bi-weekly hide and seek games conducted by the American Von Tirpitz. and the ravages of the U. S. N. A. Submarine Squad are the only things known that drive him to a concentrated and furious effort for escape. q " Mac " isn ' t wooden by a whole lot, but as a calamity howler he takes first, second and third prizes. To hear him talk, you would think he was bilged, but somehow he never comes anywhere near hitting a tree. When it comes to drawing, he is a wonder. Destroyers are his specialty, and even the corridor walls are not free from the signs of his art. % X slip-stick artist of rare accuracy, but even at that a quiet, easy-going Missouri gentleman who produces results .«• .«» " Mac " will no doubt .some day join the ranks of the salty four stripers, with a flock of destroyers under his command . ' -» . ' ► Wilbur Lorenzo Davis Fort Lauderdale, Fla. " Date " " Da ' ■■ ! ■ Billy " Donald Roderick Osborn, Jr . Kansas City, Mo. " Os " " Sa lie ■■ OA " E, " like his famous name-sake, was cut out for a diplomat, but in his natural absent-mindedness he forgot about it and came to the Naval Academy. Down under the palms of a sunny Florida beach or in the evil city of Tampa with a slim glass on the table and an " after-dinner " in his hand, " Dave ' " would quote a proverb and solve any puljlic question. SI Tho we were not there, we can i)icture him on an even- ing ' s stroll along the mysterious edge of the everglades in his " cit " days impressing some little girl with the depth of his eyes and the warmth of his heart. " Dave ' s " quiet, dignified demeanor always gives one the idea of years and a wide experience before reaching the Severn. He will tell you that some scruli woman of Juno is the goddess who guides his destiny; but despite her he usually succeeds. About once a month he is rhino when he sights the bulletin board. " Dave " is not savvy yet he keeps a safe margin which he will hold when inside the danger angle by the old spiiit of " never say die " and hard work. His big success has been track, where, as a half-miler, he has won his " N " tw ' o years. The yellow " X " " is not " Davie ' s " only achievement, for once his love for the sea overcame his caution, he took a cruise, became one of the " boys, " and a wearer of the black " X. " f Possessed of a graceful dignity and ease, and with that quality of making true and fast friends they feel that Davis can be counted upon in the last lap. We are proud to have him as one of us. Honors: Buzzard; Track, 4,3,1; Track N, 3,1. y HIS antiquated salt hails from the " show me " J state, but you would have thought otherwise X from the way he learned to " change the name of Arkansaw " during Plebe year. Being born a sailor man. he showed to advantage during First Class cruise on the Hiiiiliiijjloii. He did things efEciently and practically, and worked nav well enough to promise much for his success in that professional branch. AVhile blessed with plenty of grey matter, " Os " has not been one to knit himself to work alone. He is a fusser of note, an ardent admirer of movie actresses a la Red Book, and his literary ability has added much to some of the pages of this work. Usually the reggest of the reg. " Sadie " succumbed to a feminine weakness for fine raiment First class ye;ir, and insisted on draping his person in the gaudiest of non-reg shirts. As a result he voted a straight ticket on both of the Nav department ' s elections, and collected simdry de- merits and hard feelings. . nd the resurrection of those now missing shirts is one of the things that brightens his dreams of graduation. Broad-minded and observant, he does conscientiously all he attempts, and his motto is that of a good naval officer: " Work hard and play hard.

" Doc " " Barsilly " QS you glance over the regiment, have you ever noticed a little, wizened old man who looks wonder- fully wise and whose eyes have a peculiar twinkle. That is ' ■ Doc. " ' Florida lost a strong anti-prohibition vote when he recovered from the last night in Washington and found his name among those who passed. fl " Doc ' has all the attributes of an old bachelor, tho at times he is enticed out among them. This was not so always, for he used to play the " soft music, " but we fear that his is the case of having once " loved and lost will ne ' er to to love again. " He is not athletic and would rather tell stories, reminiscences so to speak, among the bunch ar.iimd the " bowl " than anything else. His line is one that will take in any company, not hard, not tiresome but .spoken with a true art that so few possess. Doc can always go them one better. For all that, his is a sensitive nature and at times it is hard to know just how to take him. Doc ' s pride lies deep, and though never shown, is not to be trampled upon without some hard feelings. -Although sensitive, " Doc " never worries. The " Flu, " pneumonia and pleurisy, all at the same time never phased him a bit, and as to studies. " I always claim I stood one better than the five-striper. " Howell has generally the characteristics of an " old navy man, " — endurance, never an " I don ' t know, " and true gontli-miinly nature. He makes true friends, which are the right kind because they know he would himself do anything he asks of them. James Dudley Wilson Memphis, Tenn. " ' I ' luldin ' Ilriiil " " Woodrmf " " Whileii " " Piixx " gBIG. fat, lazy fellow who had rather sit near a radiator with a Snappi Stories than to do anything else in the world, unless it is to eat. His next choice is to have velvet enough to have a Plebe call hi m at the end of his study period while he prepares his Juice and Nav — growing fat. Dudley is the type of man who stands in the 1 st fifty, not because he is especially wooden but because he prefers to cork rather than to study. Isually he sees the sunny side of life, but occasionally you might hear him condemning the Navy and vividly descriliing how it has not only ruined him morally and mentally, but i)hysicall. ' as well, since he sacrificed his eye- sight for fifty per. . s an athlete. Dudley has not excelled, chiefly because he has not had the time. When he was not fussing or sleep- ing, the gym has, however, been honored by his presence for a few- minutes each day in order that he might keep his front flat. During I ' lebc year " Dud " was in Prof. Bell ' s " A " squad, and since that time he has improved to such an extent that occ sionally you might see that 4.0 fluttering on his arm. CI However Dudley has many redeeming (|ualities. He has a natural love for things nautical and it is not long after he boards a ship before he knows her from stem to stern. " By Golly! a 2.53 in Juice and a ' i.- ' in in Math. Now I ask yuh. how ' s that for a blind man? " Hnnora: Buzzard: Ifrrnflin i, 1. M I immmimm George Charles Haeberle Los Angeles, Cal. " Sylph " " Gus " " Hop " kUD is a clean-cut fellow with the quiet, un- I obtrusive manners which cause a man to be well liked. He has a faculty for keeping out of trouble (except for a few brus hes with Lady Nicotine) and having glided thru his academic career with a 3.0, he has not a worry in the world. fl He is no tyro at tennis, but his love for the Cosmo outweighed his desire for the sport so the team lost hira. He drags occasionally and receives more mail than any one on the corridor j » And we have heard that he has known ree Love a " Bud " spent most of his Youngster year on the Rcina and across the Creek, but even that did n ' t keep him from pulling thru with his usual 3.0. He also spent several weeks of Youngster cruise in the hospital at Norfolk and he has never been the same man since. " Heb " ' has a slew of friends and every man in the old Fifteenth " s his brother. Honors: Buzzard. Richard Pollaro Glass Lynchbuhg, V a. Do sir, I don ' t believe I quite understand that, I had a dental appointment this morning. " Many of us have heard these words in the class room, and we almost have known, without turning around to see, that " Dick " was a member of the section. Richard is n ' t a plugger and he is n ' t particularly savvy, but he has always managed to get by. fl Even though he has n ' t had an easy time with the Academic Department, he has put much of his spare time in making the " Oleanders " a success. In fact, all his time has been taken up by either the " Oleanders, " basketball, the women, or a certain clan which call them- selves a " quartette. " This quartette is of rather a dubious character, and we all hope that their efforts will meet with some improvement. 1 " Dick " is always ready for a good time and will go the limit to find it. He drags steadily and has proven a rare playmate for the women. He will always help out if it is in his power and does his best to make things a success. Good luck, Richard, we have all liked your blonde persuasiveness and we know that others will also fall. We are sure of your success in the future, and we have no fear that ou will always attain the i.o mark.

" Judy " — ' UDY, " altho one of the youngest in ' iU, was one O I of the first arrivals at Incle Sam ' s Xaval Resort V A during the summer of lOlG. But before hasty conclusions are drawn let us explain that " Judy ' s " other name, " Blood, " comes not from any murderous instinct, but well — you see. New|)ort claims liim, St. George ' s school there educated him, and while in gay Paris he first saw the light ' ' « s H Plebe year was easy sailing for " Judy " academically speaking! Hut at formations he was always the center of attraction, p. o. ' s to right of him, p. o. ' s to left of him. etc. " See, I ' m not bowlegged, I ' m just loose jointed, " was his favorite rejoinder outside of expostulating when references were made to his he.ivy beard. The " Blood ' s " activities on Sep leave have always remained secret, but to his intimate friends he has admitted that Cupid has laid him low. This probably accounts for the few hops he has attended and the rarity with which the Lane greets his lanky figure. i Early Youngster year he evidenced willingness to call his battle with the English Department a draw, but they would n ' t have it that way. and " Judy " fought an uphill struggle with Naval Tictacs and Stragedy. But when it came to plannmg those after dinner speeches he turned the tables and pulled sat with a vengeance. Quiet and reserved, " Judy " is still easy to get acquainted with, but those who know him best declare that not until he is your friend do you know his real worth. Honorx: Buzzard Eugene " Wintermantel Newport, R. I. " Bonzr " -M HY do they call him " Booze? " Nobody knows I J why any one would wish such a name on such vXy a charming little fellow, and especially in this Navy where Booze flows — not at all. But then, let us admit that he has been done a grave injustice. f Now to the heavier part of our line. Where born? We do not know. But he supposedly hails from Rhode Island and received his primary education in the gentler arts on the board walk at Newport.

His work as a soloist in Chapel on Sunday needs no additionid mention, as it speaks for itself. 1 Not savvy, but never in danger of bilging, sums up his academic career. His capacity for sustained effort and consistent work makes him a valuable asset in whatever he chooses to take up.

" Steve " came in with his colors flying but after two years of hard fighting was forced to dip them to the Academic Board and make a temporary surrender.

Originality is his hobby and in connection with this w-e might add that he has a constant craving for somebody ' s goat. As a parlor snake, " Pinkey " ranks with the best of them and yet he ' s never been kissed — ' sa fac ' .

He was one of our charter members, as he entered the first day. and established himself on the ground left with Sabalot. After a Plebe summer, spent sans souci. he threw his academic clutch into high and started to climb.

Under the tender mercies of Rogers, Plebe year he was started out on the steep rocky path; since then his life has been uneventful with the exception of an incident Youngster cruise. This brave boy with the aid of several men in a patrol boat one moonlight night in Chesapeake Bay sighted and sank a submarine — (spar buoy) in five minutes, but he has not yet received his medal of honor. In practical knowledge he is well grounded, which has enabled him to sail the course without any serious attacks from the Depts, 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 without giving the Why ' s and Wherefores. If it is reasonable, the deal is as good as closed.

But a midshipman can ' t get very far on his face, yet Kinney missed the tackling dummy one diiy at football practise and went about thirty feet on his. For a long time there was a debate as to whether the record should be put on a tablet in the gym or in Memorial Hall. In his Youngster year Philip rowed on the second crew and was seriously considered for the first crew. He looks every inch a crew man, a fitting background for his three stripes. Somehow that Seventh Company runs like a million dollars and every one has a suspicion that the three-striper runs the Company. The watchmen in the armory claim that a tiiU blonde has been seen loitering around the regi- mental colors since early in September. In seamanship the other day a prof heard Kinney muttermg, " 2.55| points and 168 points is 423j points, " and thinking that Kinney was taking the old compass seriously, wrote down a forty. Once in a while some enterprising chap, in order to give the girl a real treat, has coaxed Kinney to the gym on Saturdays. At all other times it was more or less a matter of duty.

In fact,[his name and fame have spread far beyond his owti deck; — George has gone in strong for the juvenile training stuff. But whenever you meet him he always comes down with this, " made a resolution to-day; am going to lay off the Plebes and treat ' em like brothers. " f The Academic departments have always been ready to cry Kamerad to this Boston savoir, and he takes their monthly offerings as a mental relaxation. f " Bilged cold, gentlemen, bilged cold, I tell you, " is his standby after every exam, but he never gets less than a 3.4. Q When " Cal " was a Plebe he was ever ready to catch us up for those little slips of language so common hereabouts. But a month on the U. S. S. Reina Mercedes slightly dulled his sensibilities. i " Oh, I just think that tall, handsome, black-haired boy from Massachusetts is splendid. Why does n ' t he come to your hops more often? " This was on the occasion of his first and only appearance as a knight of the waxed floor, and the young lady spoke from her heart. C His Youngster year was spent in the old Eighth company, hence those diagonals at the start of First Class year. However, sterling worth can not be hidden forever, so before many moons George was the proud possessor of a pair of buzzards.

The outdoors is his hobby and he claims he ' d sooner wade twelve foot snowdrifts in old New England than have a season pass to New York and everything in it. l Scholarship means nothing in his young life, but even then he has had but few occasions to rag his marks by the week, and if his inclinations had run more to text books than the once a month variety, the story would have a different ending.

To do him justice, however, if you can imagine a very quiet young man, who never has much to say on either side of a subject, a man to whom nearly everything comes only by the avenue of hard work, who goes after each task put before him as if his life depended on it, and makes good nine times out of ten — then you know " Andy " as few others know him.

I Ever since Youngster cruise, when he acquired the vile habit, the following dialogue could be heard every night at 9;30. " Hey ' Red, ' is there one in your room. ' " fl " Yes, if you fix the windows, and be sure and bring those matches when you come. " Ackley always finds some good reason for attending hop and he has the most accommodating way of dragging blind for a friend in need. But he overdid it once, and on a certain Saturday morning found that he had promised to drag for three different classmates that same afternoon. " Red " is certain to make a good shipmate.

Although he ' s hardly to blame for his place of residence, it has always seemed to us to be a misfortune meted out by a very negligent Fate, that caused such a good fellow to make lus residence out among the com and oats of loway. It is as a fusser that the handsome blond has maintained more than a passing reputation, and it is in the exercise of this art of fussing that he has displayed quaUties which fit him for the diplomatic service. Who has ever heard him asking Doc or General to drag for him, without marveling at the line, or sympathizing with the unfor- tunate so selected? His dark deeds along this particular branch would excite the envy of a Borgia. Wliy, Doc claims that an operation on his foot was made necessary by one of " Georgie ' s " refractory stove linings.

" Steiny " TEINY " or " Senor Stein — haagen, " as Ferdy was wont to call him, is a peculiar combination of German diplomacy and Hibernian wit; to save argiunent it might as well be said here that the lad is half Irish. The wit is evident at all times except when he sleeps, while the diplomacy is only prominent when it becomes evident that he and somebody else individually harbor the idea of dragging the same girl. fl This brings us to another of " Steiny ' s " innate qualities — fussing. If we desired to be greasy we might say his . pollo- like appearance and heavy line hypnotized the femme, but as he certainly would deny any such accusation, we must be satisfied in saying he gets away with it because of his ability to rattle no mean hoof on the " Danse parquet. " He early demonstrated his hauteur toward the Math Department by failing to recognize the existence of the weighty lessons so generously dished out, whereupon the Department, presumably hurt by his scornful inattention, placed him high among the bird nests. To look casually at " Steiny ' s " physiognomy with its jaw and heavy beard, you should mentally say, " A rough guy, an oil burner but a kindly heart, " and that is where you would be half wTong because he does n ' t burn oil, he does n ' t swear — much, but he has a kind heart and he will prove it any time by taking your last skag. We can say without mental reservation that " Steiny " is absolutely square, that he possesses that practical side which every naval officer requires to make good, and that a stauncher friend or more enjoyable companion would be difficult to find.

He gets a letter from back in old Kentucky rather regularly but he has always claimed it was only a cousin.

He hails from Wapella, which he claims is on the map, and as we ve never been able to find it, we must take his word for it. " Angle " is not particularly savvy, but he always wins in his bouts with the All Academics, and is always ready to help some " wooden ' " man over the ruts. He is fairly reg and his run-ins with the discipline department are few and far between. A true movie fiend, he is a regular patron of Crabtown and Memorial Hall movie fests, and Plebe year estab- lished the record of seeing at least one movie show every liberty day. Warner early decided that the track team needed his aid and went out for the discus throw to such good advan- tage that he missed the Academy record by only three inches, which feat added another medal to his collection. One of the staunchest of the Rouge Mikes, Angerer claims that he has a good reason, and after seeing her picture, we are inclined to accept his statement. Twelve page letters twice and thrice a week are rather strong arguments and can not be ignored. He s already antici- pating June Week and — but the rest ' s a secret.

" Johnnie " EARS ago, some one told Johnny that there was a Navy, whereupon Johnny joined the outfit. He did n ' t care what the Navy was but he had been into all the trouble covered by Civil Law and longed for new bights to get into. He has founded his naval career upon that fundamental idea: Stand clear of the sternfast. f Johnnie is blessed with a natural proclivity towards evil, outboard tendencies, and a pack of Fats wild. Sheer dis- cretion and freak luck have stood him well. Many have tried to leave something on his doorstep other than scented bits of pink, but only the old Second Battalion kitty has enjoyed any degree of success. Benny wanted to drown the two striped ones, but Johnnie insisted on being the god- father to all six. Q He has worked to cross purposes from year to year. All winter he smashes training and cures himself to a ham, but emerges each Spring to smash a few track records. That at least has been his dream. When he knocks off, the odds are decidedly against the lady. The man is inconsistent, indeterminable. He mil start a perfect rough-house and then impartially aid all combatants by hea -ing the last unbroken crockery that the room boasts into the melee. Johnnie had never seen Ocean View by night until he was detailed as a boat officer to land a liberty party on those peaceful shores. He was certain that the place would be gloriously lit. The result was that he chased a brightly lighted excursion steamer twenty miles up Chesapeake Bay. Honors: Clean Sleeve; Track Squad, i. S, 1; Track NumeraU.

After many years spent in practising Boyle ' s Law on the dusky natives he saw greater prospects and less work in the Navy, so he came here looking for a much needed rest. He substituted track for parlor athletics and developed into the best hurdler in the Academy, winning a medal Plebe year, and the " N " Youngster year, which resulted in his spending the latter part of both years on the " Extra eating squad " of the track training table. The need of a ' 2.5 in Dago, caused him to drop baseball Plebe year and devote the remainder of his stijy at the Academy to the hurdles and broad jump. fl The soothing influence of pretty nurses have a particular charm for him, and if he keeps dabbling in this game long enough, he will become a regular ardent fusser. He could be frequently found in the stag line, ready to relieve some submerging friend from the choking grasp of a 4.0, to allow him to come up for air. George is by no means a diplomat, and says what he thinks in a frank, outspoken manner which we can not help but admire. Even the profs stand from under when George tells them they are a bunch of pairots.

His ability, though never recognized, as a foot- ball man is not a trifle, but crew is his favorite. Being a true lover of the sport and a hard worker he has developed into as good an oarsman as Xavy possesses.

After a youth spent in ro -ing, fishing and rolling marbles, Fred realized his ambition when he became Captain of the High School Cadets. This early acquaintance with the sword probably led to his prowess as a fencer. But when we see him sitting for hours in the window at night, and hear him say, " Gee, I d like to be home now, " we can not help but think that his spirit feels confined and restrained within these narrow walls. fl Fred has an overwhelming sense of humor, which culminates daily in some practical joke, or a rough house.

His official title Plebe year was " Saffouli, " and despite the fact that in those days it was a Second Class rate to call him by it, the name has stuck !♦ s» f George prefers the quiet seclusion of a professor ' s parlor to the confusion of the weekly round-ups in Luce Hall and comes in from his calls with such regularity that the Jimmy Legs at the gate sets the GMT on his chronometer as " Saffouli " crosses the line. i Probably the greatest mterest in the Irishman ' s life is eats. Woe to the Plebe who is so careless as to let George see the box the M. C. has just left. In the mess hall he keeps three mokes busy and has some uncanny faculty of con- sistently clutching the extra piece of pie. Both Plebe and Youngster years George won fame as a French expert. Those who know him best claim his " parley " sounds like blarney, but nevertheless he kept half the corridor ofi ' the trees. 1 George combines with Hebrew thrift and Irish tendencies some characteristics all his own. But the combination is a good one, and so long as he holds the key his course will be an easy one. " Say, George, who is the King of Siam?

Nothing has happened, or ever will happen, to please him; and his views on the correct conduct of the Navy are — well, they are original, at least, so give him credit. Yet there is a certain tinge of the Bohemian in these same views that are so pleasant to the imagination of the best of us. " Nellie " passed a long and adventurous life in various occupations " out in Helena " before coming here. Listen to his stories, guess his age, then dig up last year ' s register and you ' 11 be surprised. The love of the fair " Lady Nic " has often kept Neill from other diversions which, to the hardened fusser, seem elevating. He is erratic. First, he smokes himself to a ham and then lays off indefinitely, but finally he settles down to the regular diet of " before and after. " In spite of all this he has had but one rendezvous with the D. O. that caused a break in the peaceful tenor of his existence. Brantly does not waste any study periods, for it takea a great deal of consistent boning to keep himself off the trees. Not that that discourages him — the habitue of the M. C. ' s desk usually manages to pull sat. in exams. Variety is the key to his character. One day his pseudo- nym ' ■ Sunshine " seems almost applicable; the next he is a personification of the proverbial rhinoceros.

He even thought for a while of going to the Phillyloo estabUshment on the Hudson. However. Fortune smiled upon him and early in June, 1916, he stood into Crabtown and dropped his mud-hook. His beaming countenance adorning the upper half of this page bears witness that he secured a good anchorage. fl His suggestive nick-name, " Theda, " and how he ac- quired it, is not a story within the scope of this work, but suffice to say that his shipmates of the Arizona bestowed it upon him in commemoration of a rare bit of terpischorean talent displayed by him during Youngster cruise. f " Theda " is a savoir, so we seldom see his name bending any twigs, though he has never been enough infatuated by the celestial sphere to desire any star to be his own. Selby is not exactly a Red Mike, but his temporary interest in " les femmes " closely resembles a well-known beverage — " There ' s a reason! " Post-marks, Sep leaves, and at last, the miniature have confirmed our suspicions. f As an all-round good fellow and a friend, Selby has all the requisites and then some. In athletics, football has been Selby ' s specialty and each season has seen him play- ing a hard and consistent game. He has shown the stuff that constitutes real Navy Varsity material. fl " Sa-a-a-y, ' Rat, ' that U-boat rags me — oh, just con- stantly! " .•♦;» Ralph Humphreys Greenwood, Mis i.

But there is a world of satisfaction in knowing that there is a comeback to the daily trees, and there is a square deal and justice alike for all, from the non- ratiest Plebe to the Five- Striper. C The Executive Department is the one Department which has the production of military character for its sole objective. A side issue with the brain-storming aggregations, it becomes the sole reason for the being of Commandants, Executives, and Duty Officers. And by it there is instilled in all the principles of efficiency, discipline and square dealing, so that no man may go forth into the Service without a knowl- edge of his obligations to the uniform he wears. 295 SEAMANSHIP ERRING!

" C Between blinker and the Rules of the Road is like being between the devil and the deep blue sea; with the odds in favor of the former rather than the latter, as it should be in a self-respecting nautical organization. C But in spite of the fact that the average tactical diameter of the class has worked out in the neighborhood of a 2,67 and steering a quarter point course on an old-fashioned com- pass is like trying to make sail on a destroyer, the exponents of the greatest art of which a Naval officer can be master have worked hard and faithfully to ground us with sufficient accuracy, so, that aided by " Hints for Young Officers Taking the Deck, " we should be able to get the proper number of sideboys to the starboard gangway when the coxswain of the approaching barge hails " Fleet. " C. " I won ' t hesitate an instant to bush a man when he has n ' t boned his lesson. " 297 NAVIGATION " GENTLEMEN, I can conceive of no greater hell on earth than to be the Navigator of a ship and not know how. " CL That has been the whole attitude of the Department of Navigation in its dealings with Twenty — its ambition has been to turn out men in whom confidence can be placed to anchor the ship safely in the Delaware River and not land her over in the old Fourth Ward of Philadelphia. It has been tedious going sometimes, for the Department is firm in the belief that " Accuracy in figures comes only as the result of hard and continuous practice, " and in sustaining this motto multitudinous have been the Marcq St. Hilaire ' s, Polaris sights, and Sumner lines that have been worked, plotted, checked, and erased, that the entire procedure might be repeated. CL It is only in its moments of midshipman day memories that the department descends to a lower level and demands, " Have you got a collar on? " but in its efforts to put a knowl- edge of Bowditch where a vacuum grew before the Depart- ment has been laboriously persistent, and we trust, not unsuccessful. 299 ORDNANCE and GUNNER Y " IF a shell depart at X while its muzzle speed is V, I know to hit the target P ' s the chance. I can calibrate a gun, adjust torpedoes for a run, Now what the deuce is hard ' bout Ordnance? " CL It ' s all well enough in song or story, but when you get to the point where the Crown Prince of the fine art of mental hazing allows all books on an exam and then shakes you to see whether you stay sat or not, it ' s no time for mirthful warbling. Such dope is good only in Smoke Hall the morning of graduation. L " The only reason for teaching the science of exterior ballistics to midshipmen is that they may intelligently and successfully use the guns committed to their care. So much as is necessary for this purpose is taught the undergraduate, and no more. " Those are delightful sentiments contained in those last three words, but isn ' t it too true that only too much of the foregoing is beyond the scope of the average man ' s work? C At that, the department is human, and you ' 11 find the prof that most consistently traps you on the bush equally willing to devote his time out of hours to helping you bone for an exam. 301 MARINE ENGINEERING and NAVAL CONSTRUCTION " GOOD morning, gentlemen. " Business of glaring about while the section responds at half minute intervals. " Rotten, get a cheer leader. " C That ' s the Steam Department. Its bark is worse than its bite, and many are the occasions when a man gets his cussing out in the section room and 3.0 for a day ' s work that should hav e perched him high and dry among the posies gathered by the 40%. C Dago comes and English goes, but the Steam Department runs on forever, and in its year to year attacks brings up more new material and a greater number of subjects than any other aggregation. From Plebe year straight line drawing to Turbines and Infernal Combustion Engines we brave them all. C " Bear a hand at the boards, I want to talk football.

Section dismissed. " ft ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING and PHYSICS PRESENT— Slide Rules ! C. Section — Seats! C This manual, made perfect by three drill periods per week for two years, satisfactorily concluded, the section proceeds to a discussion of the work for the day. That is, it proceeds after the buzzer message has come and gone, carrying with it its customary three-tenths. Also that is, a one-sided dis- cussion begins in which the prof is asked to explain every- thing from Avogadro ' s hypothesis to the dope on the next exam. It all takes time, you know! And time is valuable, very valuable, when it is n ' t spent chewing chalk. €1 Youngster year the word Skinny connotes Friday night lectures, three buzzer messages and three recitations per week, and one exam per month. First Class year the word Juice connotes all the above with the single exception of lectures, and with the added branches of many a tree. fl Maybe by the time we graduate we ' 11 know that a com- mutator is n ' t the 5 :15 from the big burg to the podunk suburb, but it will be as accidental as the damping of a self- induced current in the discharge resistance. C But after the last gasp, and when the department has garnered its last crop of marbles, it ' s a safe bet we ' 11 be glad some day they taught us to hook two generators in parallel and how to manipulate a Waterbury differential motor. 305 fin J » Me 3 - € MATHEMATICS F " NO questions this morning, Man the boards. Last night ' s aJ assignment was fruit, and anyway it ' s been ten years since ■ I had Calculus, so how do you expect me to know anything about it? " C Same old line! Is it any wonder we bury Math with such great glee — and is it any wonder that we rejoiced when that same obituary was posted six months early by reason of the three-year course. True, they were long lessons and no fruit, when twelve months work was jammed into eight, but it may be the department descended from its perch on the infinity end of the hyperbola to a realization of the fact, for those who fell by the wayside were few in comparison to former years. C For all the burden of unprintable but easily thinkable epithets the department suffers during its years of tyranny, it ' s little short of a blessing that they are so thoro-going. We thought we were going to bury it completely, until we lamped sperical trig as the basis of Nav, integration as the foundation of Bullard Vol. 1, and the first derivative of v with respect to t as the reason for Mayevski ' s balUstic coeflicient. CL However, the most practical application of higher math at present is computing the compound interest on grad debts and determining by the simple process of choice and chance how long it will be before we rate another suit of blues. 307 i ENGLISH FROM the " Treasure Island " stage down thru the Shakes- pearean era to Famous Tea-Fights and Naval Strategy and Tactics, is a far cry — but the English Department, without ever having lost so much as a machine gun in its innumerable monthly battles, goes into the fray with the old one-lunger hitting on high, and stalls on no hill. CL Since the passing of the day when Math and English met suitable fates on one and the same evening, the burial of the Ancient Order of Heavers has taken on all the severity of military rites. To be exact it is buried in the field without even fitting honors — it slips away and is gone, at least until the time of the Public Speaking classes First Class year. And even they have the redeeming feature of affording a four-square dinner. [ When the final word is said, however, (and the English Department will have it, never fear) the genii of the language as she oughter be, deserve a word of praise for their pains- taking efforts to place in the minds of the sons of toil a Uttle of the real culture (not Kultur, much as their methods may imply) that makes so much for the polished manner of the true gentleman and Naval Officer. 309 MODERN LANGUAGES MODERN Languages is the ultra-up-to-the-minute inter- pretation of Dago as she useter be, but since the recognition by the Executive Department of the fact that a dago is a structural gravel-worker and not a professor of French or Spanish the time-honored handle of Walrus, Flapper, et al, has been consigned to the scrap heap, and as yet no suitable substitute has been sent forward by the replacement division in Smoke Hall. CL It was a happy moment when we learned for sure that our daily association with the linguists was to come to a close at the end of Youngster year — in truth we buried the " parlez vous " with almost as great glee as we saw Math and English walk the plank. C From a naval standpoint the most practical part of the shortened course was apparantly the final months of work on the nautical phrase book, but we lost our belief in even that when we discovered to our delight that even Monsieur ' s perfect Parisian dialect was unintelligible to the French gobbles of the Jeanne d ' Arc. Our own bluffs had been called so often it was glee paramount to see the callers get it in the neck. 311 w NAVAL HYGIENE " THAT reminds me of a story, gentlemen. Tell it? Well it happened that a lady fainted on a street corner — " C But why go into all the harrowing details of Doc ' s latest infringement of all the rules of polite society. The only extenuating circumstance is that he probably knew his audience all too well. CL While the Friday night lectures of the Bones Department have been held in a more than humorous regard by the major- ity of midshipmen from time immemorial, we must give credit where credit is due, and admit that in the business of all around physical development, a man gets more attention here than he does anywhere else in the Service or out of it. d. It is only in moments when the recollection comes that the department passes on the bill-of-fare that we consign it individually and collectively to the place where first-aid is a matter of second importance except in cases of heat prostra- tion .1 .

Said he, " Verily, shall we lay the corner stone of an asylum on the banks of the Severn, and into the portals of this institution shall flock the fairest of the land. They shall follow the paths of Neptune, they shall be exposed to the intricacies of reading, writing, and ' rithmetic, and ever and anon there shall be a parting of the goats on the left hand and the sheep on the right. " And forthwith did he establish this institution of learning which by the formula " Ex Scientia Tridens " did purport to educate gentle- men sailors for a life on the bounding main. Scene I C The stage is set, the scene enchanting, the very atmosphere tends to grant a new lease on life. And into these open portals flock the youths of our land in all their splendor and radiance of fine rai- ment. Down by the old sea wall lie the cat-boats and half-raters rolling lazily with the swells of the Severn and basking in the torrid warmth of mid- summer sunUght. Off to the lighthouse the sun- white sails of the Robert Center catch the rays of the sun and laughingly toss them back again. From Worden Field we hear the crack of base ball bat and the hearty laughter of happy, healthy youth. C We were called before the Superintendent — " race, color, previous state of servitude. " " Glori- ous, wonderful, splendid, " quoths he, ' Verily, there is not a misfit or a cripple in the crowd. " Later — " Gentlemen of ' 18 allow me the pleasure of introducing to you the class of ' 21. " They taught us the way to promotion and pay, and we learned many a lesson from them. C But anon there must come the parting of the ways. These attendant spirits, these celestial creatures were being torn from our midst. Then the organ pealed out, " God be with you, ' tU we meet again. " And they left us alone — alone. C Four months we worked and played, four months, the like of which is nowhere known. Infantry drill and rifle range in the blistering sun, cutter races to the lighthouse and back, and swim- ming driU over there on the float with those soft, clinging, most affectionate of creatures (jelly fish), — don ' t you recall it all now ? No cares, no sorrows, no troubles beset our path. And then Billy Lush soon broke out the horsehide. " Now, fellows, base ball is a game of life. Coordination of muscle, harmony of movement, something after this fashion. " (Business of Billy laying Venus de MUo away in the shade.) Later a stranger appeared on Farragut Field, a man from the West, they said, tall, lanky, hard, and rangy, silent and mysterious, the strangest man we ever knew, — ' t was Doby — and he got to work and built up the stuff that goes to make the Navy Blue. s cene II C ' ' Sudden the lightning flashedlike falchions in the dark. Sudden the thunder cracked — alas for our gallant bark. " Like Beelzebub hurled from Heaven into the deepest depths of perdition, we were lost to the world never again to be our same selves. Our doom reserved us to wrath, to oppression, restraint and severest admonition. The most obdu- rate pride must yield to humility and meekness; and again, but this time more thoroughly, we learned to observe and to absorb the ways and habits of the sea. Gone was the happiness of the summer, and the memory of it lingered with us to torment and harass us in our fate. For nine months we labored incessantly and we hved a life in a new world of which we were not a part. Discipline and subordination, these two most difficult lessons to learn, became an inherent part of our nature. And we profited more than we knew from our hardships. C Fall rolled around with football in the air. We watched, and watching it, absorbed the Navy Spirit that put the fight in the team and in those spirited games of the fall and winter on the basket ball floor. Every other Saturday we invaded the sanctuary of antiquity, Crabtown. Alas, how fool- ishly did we squander our monthly sustenance in the village. After release we poured through the old gateway in one continuous stream and invaded the theaters, stores, and homes. And then, when the shades of night were falUng, when our worldly goods were dwindled to naught — we came back 0:j«r 318 home, and why do we call it home ? Why do we call any place home — because we come to love the place, don ' t you reckon? d Days passed with different lessons and arduous drills. And at night in the mess hall we completed the education of the day, gave information on any and all topics, and had weighty discourse on such important subjects as the Whichness of What, Pajamas or Nightgowns, the Intellectual Attain- ments of Oysters, and the historic origin of every- thing from Prohibition to Twin Beds. And again did we learn a profound lesson from all. We learned what it meant to be shipmates, through thick and thin. And say, when you stop to think of it, was n ' t it good to get a glimpse of the old heaven again from way down there in the trough of the wave when Hundredth Night came around? Do you remember that Hundredth Night, how the table was set, sans cutlery, the band enveloped in shrub- bery ready to trip off " les melodies gaies, " then tables cleared for action, speeches, Egyptian dances, and how the U-boat discountenanced the celebration? But time had fled and the end was in sight. C Almost before we knew it we felt the warm breath of Spring. Billy Lush began to set in motion the greatest combination we ' ve had since we last met the army. Dick Glendon scientifically built a machine that would later win the American Henley. Every afternoon the waters of the Severn were dotted with saiUng craft, the old gymnasium fairly swarmed with enthusiasts, the tennis courts were alive with players. And all this meant more to us Plebes, than to upper classmen, for these were our only diversions. They tended to make us forget our plight, to grin when things went wrong. s c e n e III €1 " How many days? " I. " Thirty a sleep and a butt, sir. " C " Boy how time do fly — why it seems as if it were only — " " Hey! you two birds down there, what you crabbin ' ' bout? " C " Sir, I was only sending Mr. Skaggs a tele- pathic wave in regard to butter, sir. " C " Well, not so loud, or you ' 11 have the D. O. on us. And if you ' re sure it ' s only thirty days, why carry on, for you ' re surely going to be ravaged by the fires of purgatory from now on. " C Only one more month and then back again on the crest of the wave. Each night we bade farewell to one more day, each day we longed for the loiter- ing shades of night. C. And then June Week with its midnight showers, drills, inspections, and the myriad colors, with the Yard looking more beautiful than you had ever seen it before. You can hear that old organ now with those gadgets that bring up the stern with Too-ta-ta- toot-toot as we sang " Until We Meet Again. " Then at last came the last twenty-four hours. Dress parade was never more pretty than it was that afternoon. And in the evening came the Farewell Ball when at last we could break the restraint of the gallery and get down on the floor to reclaim our almost for- gotten pleasure. And after a last experiment that night with Doyle ' s Law, graduation day dawned in all its splendor. C And if we all live a hundred years longer, never will we forget the pleasure, the infinite deUght of the snake-dance on the Lane. Boy, how good it felt to cast off the Plebe and assume the Youngster. Then the cruise, but that ' s another story. s c e n e IV C The setting is the same but the characters are changed. Where once the Plebe, in all his per- plexities, wandered aimlessly to and fro, the Youngster, proud in the possession of his one- eighth inch of gold, struts as proudly as the cock of the walk. Gone is the benighted expression of the face and in its place has come a faint sparkle of intelligence. They are real (?) men of the sea now and as such comport themselves more in the manner of their illustrious predecessors than as Plebes they were wont to. C At the beginning of our Youngster year the flu came to the Academy and two of our classmates, W. A. McDuflie and E. Sturtevatit succumbed to its effects. They left us to make a more wonderful voyage into the great unknown and their demise was deeply regretted by those who knew them well. On that day of days when we aU shall meet again, we shall be glad to see our old classmates who departed in the springtime of their careers, leaving a void in our life that can never be filled. 319 o . -.9 0 Tostlude C And now another wise old man, engendering a chUd of his imagination, has decreed that Twenty- one shall no longer exist as one body. Half of the class will leave in June, 1920 while the other half wUl remain until June, 1921. But, while separated in fact. Twenty-one shall always be one in spirit, that spirit which binds men together in all walks of life, the spirit born of mutual cares and joys. tl And, may the happy memories of the days we spent together as one class keep us ever as one body with the same aspirations and ideals. LEST WE FORGET 1921 HERE ' S to 1921, The finest in the land! Never a duty wUl she shun — Firm shall she ever stand! II. Here ' s to days of summer, spent In learning how to row And what " Squads Left " and " Squads Right meant To tired Plebe, John Doe. III. Here ' s to the days when Plebes we were!

Split in fact, — in spirit, ONE! Firm may she ever standi 320 THE CRUISE H, my brethren, will you ever forget that sunny June Morning when, with a heart beating high with hope, you joyously made your weary way down to the dock looking like an earthquake refugee? Over one shoulder you swung your sea bag, around your neck was the hammock, and by your side swung Ex Calibre, your trusty bucket. A gentleman sailor, that ' s what you were. Out there, gleaming in the rays of the morning sun, lay the tin-plated battle wagon which held your destiny. Little did you reck that a ship had decks which were occasionally washed, or that on a modern ship the coal bunkers were connected with the ash-ejector. No, you shouted lustily for " Mothers, sisters, sweethearts " when the kicker shoved off, cherishing the fond delusions you had obtained from " Buck Jones. " C When the boats hit the ship ' s side we had a hectic time of it. For a time it looked like there ' d be a riot, everybody was fighting to pass the gear over the side. They finally formed two lines and started the rough work. Only dropped two suit cases and a strong box over, too. The owner of the strong box was all for caUing out the ' Fire and Rescue Party because it contained a wool sweater his girl had made for him to wear when he stood watch on the ice machines. C We finally lifted up the anchor and put it on the shelf (we were n ' t sea-going then) and got under way. Oh, boy, everybody was anxious to work. They rushed around the quarter deck getting things shipshape. One bird remarked how white the deck was. Gee, he did n ' t know why it was white, did he? Poor fish! It was n ' t very long till we joined the Fleet. By that time we knew all about the ship. Most of the boys had discovered the lounge room, with modern appointments, situated in the forward part of the ship. C But Great God of the Seven Seas? That first night was sure a nightmare. One guy, who used to be cow puncher, got his hammock slung but he could n ' t mount it. Finally he sneaked up on it softly, jumped at it and tried to beat it into sub- mission before it was roused. He still thinks some- body wised it up. Was n ' t it great stuff, sleeping in that little porch swing? You ' d stick your feet in one place and darned if you did n ' t bulge out at another. The most convenient thing to do was to shove your feet in the hammock ahead. How about those nights when they were running the ship off the steam from the scuttle butt, when your little hammock curled around you cozily while you stewed under a blanket to ward off the Tangier mosquitoes? Who wrote that bunk about being " Lulled to sleep in a sailor ' s cradle, rocked by the gentle motion of the waves? " Sailor ' s cradle, me eye, sailor ' s Turkish Bath is better. C The next morning we got the first glimpse of Yorktown, lying dormant in the sun. Yorktown is always that way. We admitted that our first im- pressions were rather poor, but after our first Uberty we could understand why Cornwallis surrendered. Anybody would have surren- dered to get away from that town. There are a good many historic reUcs there. One is 321 9 01 Cornwallis ' s Cave. The old boy must have had it fitted up so he and a couple of other oflBcers could enjoy a quiet game when Yorktown got on their nerves. They put a sign up, " Cornwallis ' s Cave, 25 cents admission. " They knew that nobody would pay a quarter to get in that cave when they could get in just as good a one for nothing. There was a court house, too. There was n ' t any use for it, though, because the police force was on his sum- mer vacation while the Fleet was anchored there. Yorktown was pretty bad, you can ' t deny that, but we were going to be in Frisco on the Fourth of July, so why worry? C Of course, we had to coal before starting for the West Coast, but after we coaled — just watch our smoke. One fine morning a couple of innocent- looking lighters came alongside quietly and made fast. We noticed that they always came during chow time. Probably that was so nobody would get a chance to sink them, because there was n ' t a man who ' d pass up a meal even to sink a coal lighter. After chow the tarpaulins were broken out to cover the guns. One bird asked why they did that, but he got peeved when the bosun said it was to keep the guns comfortable while the ship was " coaled. " C The next morning we ate our breakfast off the deck. When " commence firing " busted we went over the side in a cloud of dust, everybody fighting for a shovel. We were all excited and a couple of fellows were so anxious to get the lighter empty that they began to shovel the coal over the side. Of course there were a few who kept calm amidst all the excitement. Just mark this fact: along about forty years from now you just note all the birds who wear two stars abaft their anchor and you ' 11 see the same gentlemen who passed the strap through the bags, or, stood on deck and tossed back empty bags whUe their ship was being coaled. They used their gonks. C To be sure, every coal bunker has a rubber lining, they say, and there was a little benefit from coaling, besides having to wash afterwards. We made one hberty in Old Point. After the ship had taken about seventy-five or a hundred thou- sand tons in the bunkers and we had cleaned another fifty thousand off the decks, the whole gang rushed for the wash room and tried to wash at once. There was one bucket to each fifteen men and during the riot most of the fellows washed somewhere else. When the liberty party hit the 322 docks at Old Point it looked like the entrance to a coal mine when the five o ' clock whistle blows. Looks don ' t make the man, however, for who knows? Perhaps the same man who went into the Chamberlain with his head shaved may in the future years own a chain of grocery stores in Xenia, Ohio. C You could n ' t say that life was just one deuced liberty after another, though. We were supposed to go down below and see what made the ballyhoo go, and then come up and draw a picture of it. Some of the boys ' knowledge of a ship ' s pro- pulsive machinery was limited to an oar, some of . the sketches were what one might call novel. We knew from the " Bally Ohio " that you were supposed to sketch the bunkers, the coal, the forced draft, and — oh, all those things. The only trouble was that you had to be a Pinkerton detective to keep the sketches you made. We were supposed to stand regular watches. Gosh, it was sport to coax a twenty inch shovel through a ten inch fire door, or stand for four hours and watch a little hand go running like Helen Damnation around a dial. Great life. Did you ever try to trace the auxiliary line from the boiler and you found that it went through the dynamo, the feed water heater, the scuttle butt, the laundry, and then out through a scupper? The best way to trace it is out of a " Handy Book for the Engineering Force. " C When you got on deck you did n ' t have to do much tracing except to trace the seams in the deck with a holystone. It is an exhilarating exercise to push a holystone for a short whUe, about five minutes let us say, but after that you begin to think that somebody played a practical joke on you and put one of the Pyramids in place of your brick. When you are on deck you get a lot of exercise called Swedish movements every morning. Per- haps the Swedes did invent them, but they look more like a system for teaching Hebrew children to talk with their hands. C But, oh, what rotten luck when they passed the word to scrub bags and hammocks. Was n ' t it pitiful to see a fellow plead, with tears in his eyes, to be next on a deck ki-yi? Then he ' d have to implore some one else to give him the bucket when they got through. By the time he ' d get both of the m, chovv ' would be piped down. Well, he ' d take the gear down to chow with him and lay it on the deck where he could watch it. He ' d take his eyes off the tools to ask for a piece of bread and when he ' d look again the ki-yi had disappeared. He ' d rush to see who got that, and the bucket would go. After a fruitless search he ' d return to the table to find that the moke had taken his mess gear. Nine chances out of ten are that he ' d pay a dollar and furnish the salt water soap to the two birds who got the bucket and ki-yi. C Another quaint little habit was to air bedding. Did you ever say, " Oh, how vexing, " when you dropped the blanket over as you were unlashiug the thing. Or maybe you were in the fire room when they piped down the bedding, and got papped for getting it dirty. ], Skipper ' s inspections were joyful occasions. It was such a glorious feeling to wash a pair of trow untU they were white as milk, and then sit on a bit or something, thereby producing the effect of a moonlight night without a moon " en arriere " as the French say. The skipper would take offense at your shirt, just because there was only one button on it. d The cruise was a great place to get together. The strongest association formed was called " The Amalgamated Union of Uncle Gonks. " The charter members were the hardy lads who had their pates shorn early in the summer. Pretty soon they begun to get uneasy at the slow propagation of the new crop and they tried all kinds of fertilizers. If a fellow came up to you with a sort of pleading expression on his face you ' d know he was going to take his hat off and ask you how his hair was coming along. They would n ' t even believe the rumor. Finally this gang got so desperate that they banded together and spread a lot of propaganda about shaved heads being sanitary, an Old Navy custom and a Youngster rate. A bunch of neophytes were taken in, due to this underhand work. Poor, misguided youths, most of them went home on Sept leave looking like they ' d just done six months for porch cUmbing. It was peculiar, too, because nearly everybody could grow a whole stock of hair on their face. The average Midshipman looked like an anarchist about the face and like a tramp, othervrise. Oh, if those adoring femmes who were conjuring mental pictures of us, re- splendent in a natty suit of whites pacing the quar- ter deck arm in arm with the captain, could have seen us with a week old beard, a suit of khaki that was held together by the imagination, and shoes that knew not polish Draw the curtain. C We learned a bunch of stuff on the cruise; nobody denies that. We found out that a binnacle list was n ' t the list that a ship got when more binnacles grew on one side than the other. We learned that a collision mat was n ' t a thing to put over the side to keep the ship from running into something .- sw C Along about the middle of the summer we started to wonder if there were any jolly tars in Navy since it went dry, but in the middle of August we got straight dope that we would shove off on the twenty-fourth. One bird wrote to his girl and asked her to make some of that fudge he liked, when he came round on the twenty-sixth. On the twenty-fourth we cleaned ship and on the twenty- sixth we scrubbed bags and hammocks. C We did shove off one fine morning from old Base Two, and steered straight up the Bay. Oh, boy, don ' t you remember how you picked every- thing in the old bags? And would n ' t you run every time somebody sighted a landmark? Gee, that was a great feeUng when you could see the wireless towers dimly through the hazy air. Bancroft Hall surely did look good again. But the next morning when the kickers shoved off from the side of the ship did you feel a little bit of regret at leaving the old tub? You did!!!! Oh, just regret that it was n ' t at the bottom. And the final scene, as you looked back across the ever -widening stretch of water between you and the ship, did you speak softly to the felloAf next to you, " Say, that cruise will hve long in my memory. " Well, you were right. It will live too damned long. 323 a;5a «;i » i , ,.h ■ jin CLASS OF 192 ' 2 1st and 2nd Battalions IW, B » W V _ - • V. .

Dearest Susie : When you write from here on, you want to put " Midshipman " before my name, and I ' 11 tell you why. There ' s a mess-moke here that ' s got the same name as I have, and he opens all my letters when they come to him, and by that time all the perfume ' s gone, and my roommate won ' t believe I heard from a girl. Well, all sorts of things have been happening down here. I was promoted to Section Leader this month, and I now have absolute command of sixteen men, and am directly responsible to the OflScers for their actions ; then too, I am In Charge of Room for the whole month on account of winning a bet from my roommate. We made an agreement that the fellow who got the least demerits was to lose, so I went out in the corridor to the M. C. ' s desk one day smoking, and I won the bet that way. From reading the " Log " I suppose you have heard about the Bolsheviks down here. Now it ' s a funny thing, but that paper always makes out that they are all First Classmen. That ' s all wrong, Susie, and I ' 11 tell you why. If you ' re against everything — like every Bolshevik is — you hit the pap for it, and they read you out in the morning at formation. Now I never heard one single First Classman ' s name called out, and there ' s a lot of us on every day, so that shows that we ' re the real ones, but Gee, Susie, you can ' t tell a First Classman anything at all. Now, don ' t you go thinking that there is any chance of my forgetting about you, Susan. I will admit that the girls in Annapolis like the Midshipmen and especially this class of ' 22. My class seems to have made a big hit with them — but then you are in a position to judge why ; I am a fair example of what most of us are like. The Commandant has a hard job keeping us fellows away from women, but if they were all like me, he would n ' t have a bit of trouble, because I won ' t even look at them. They have a walk down here called " Lover ' s Lane, " and the Upper Classmen like to take their girls on it, but many is the time I have walked up to it, and I ' ve seen those girls just watching for me to come and walk by them, but I never even set a foot on that place. Why, Susie, I had a Youngster come up to me the other day, and he went so far as to say I did n ' t dare to have a woman down here. If I had n ' t been so particular about what I do down here this year, I tell you I ' d have written you right away and asked you to come down the next Saturday. I forgot to tell you in my last letter, Susie, that there was a fellow on duty on my deck that came in my room and found me looking at his girl out of the window. You see, he could n ' t drag her himself because he was on duty, and he was one of these guys who gets sore at the 328 ■ ■ least little thing ; I guess he thought I was flirting with her, but honest, Susie, I had n ' t said more than a few words to her — and from my window at that. But he did n ' t mind so much, I guess, because that night, when he went off duty, he put three stars after my name on the M. C. ' s list, and you can ' t imagine how much good it has done me. Nearly every single night, after the first class M. C. has gone to Smoke Hall, the Assistant comes around to my room to talk to me. But I ' ve got a way with me, and those fellows seem to know that I won ' t stand any fooling, and they come right in the room, and say what they want to, and then they leave — no unofficial business with me during study hours. From what I have said, I guess it ' s needless for me to say that I ' m getting to be pretty well known in my class — just mention my name to an Upper Classman, and he ' 11 say, " Oh, yes, you ' re that Plebe that — , " and then he ' 11 name some thing I have done or said at one time or another. There ' s one more thing I want to tell you about before I close. They have Sweedish excercises down here, and I remember one night you said you thought I was strong, but, Susie, I ' m just warning you — that stuff develops your arms something fearful. I don ' t know but I had better take a vacation before I see you the first time. You write me and tell me what you think about it. I ' m glad you like the sea-going way I close my letters, so I ' 11 do it again. This time I ' 11 say. I ' 11 be yours till they raise up " Love " to the tip of the front mast. Your lonely sailor, Aloysius. U. S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland. My old pal Jack: You probably wonder if getting in the Navy made me forget all about you, but far be it from such. You failed to send me your address when you went over with the Machine Gun Corps, and now that you ' re home again, covered with glory and service chevrons, I ' m going to write you a long letter and tell you what has happened to me since I came here. You know I showed up for my physical examination in the middle of June, and the day after I passed, I reported to be sworn in. The main thing we did that day was to wait. One man has said that the main requisite for this place is common sense. Another said, intelligence. I say, patience. We waited everywhere we went. After signing my name at least forty times, we were ushered into the Superintendent ' s office. I guess every one of us was pretty scared, because he was a Rear Admiral and was to us then, as now, about the biggest man we knew. He put us through the giving away process, and then he called my name. Gosh, Jack, I did n ' t know what was going to happen, but he said, " Mister Jones, take charge of these men and report to the Executive Officer, Bancroft Hall. Well, I got the gang together, but when I think of the way we straggled across the yard, it gives my miUtary ideal an awful shock. We finally got into Bancroft Hall all right, and I saw an authoritative 329 looking man come striding towards me. He had a star on his chest, and I thought he must be looking for us, so I took off my hat, saluted, and said, " Sir, I was told to bring these fellows to you. " " To who? " said he. " The Executive Officer, " said I. " Laws, son, " said the old boy, " I ' m only a Master-at-Arms. " After getting into the right pew we were assigned to our Dago, which means whether we were going to be exposed to French or Spanish, and handed a reg book, a req book, and a room number. As soon as we got loose, we were escorted to our Plebe summer home by a moke. This same bird, for the sum of a dollar, showed us all the ropes, and believe me. Jack, we sure got a pile of duds. I never believed so much of it could go into my locker, but eventually it was stowed away, and after the laundry got a crack at it, the whole works either shrunk up or disappeared entirely. About the time I got into white works, formation busted, and I started out to find my company. I had an awful time. First I got mixed up with the Reserve Officers, and nobody knewwhere I was supposed to go, so finally, in utter desperation, and strongly prompted by an enormous appetite, I walked up to the guy out in front of everybody else, and he saw that I got put in right. To get on to our Plebe summer schedule. It was a nightmare at first. My muscles ached all the time. We thought we were busy as bees, but there were some funny things pulled off. A bunch of " wild Plebes " kept awake by the heat of one of those terrible nights last summer, decided to " pull something off. " Obtaining a line composed of shoe strings and bathrobe cords, with a Navy regulation No. 10 shoe hanging on the end, they made connections with the D. O. ' s window pane. The poor man had to get up finally, and with a savage roar he stuck his head out of the window only to be immediately soused by a pitcher of ice-cold water, accelerated by a fall of three decks. Believe me. Jack, there was excitement cahooting around here for awhile, but no one got ragged. About the second night I was here a bird stuck his head in my door and said, " Uniform for this deck is khaki. " I didn ' t understand it, but I got into khaki, and at 9:30 everybody busted out of their rooms with brooms. You can talk about ravaged Belgium, or shell- torn France, but they are tame beside one of these broom fights. The result was a pile of broken brooms, a lot of torn clothing, and extra duty for the entire wing. Things kept happening all the while, most noteable among them the Inter-Battalion Athletic Meet which caused no end of excitement and enthusiasm, in fact it attracted a great deal of attention from the outside. All forms of sports were included, and finally, amid hot competition, the Second Batt carried off the honors. Now, Jack, the honors amounted to an afternoon ' s liberty, and to me, in the Fourth Batt, this was heart-breaking. Almost before we realized it, the Fleet came up the Bay and anchored off Greenbury Point. Well, Jack, if I had the fluency of the Head of the Department of English, I could put my feeUngs into words. One by one, they rounded the point, and as each grim and austere fighting ship appeared, deeper and deeper grew the gloom among us Plebes. It was " taps " for Plebe summer. From then on, life h ad an entirely different aspect. There was one day of startUng revel- ations, wonderful discoveries, and " grave doubts, " and then Sep leave, — not for us though — yet. The Academic Year started nine days early, and we settled down to work. Now I believe I mentioned that we thought we were busy this summer, but we had n ' t begun to work. On my 330 i., word, Jack, they can hand out work down here. For example, they give you about one hundred and twenty pages of English, eighteen theorems in Geometry, ' steen chapters of Steam, and half the idioms in Dago and call it a day ' s work. Your English prof will say to you, " Mister Jones, man the board and write a short essay of about two volumes on ' Why Literature Opens the Channels of Sophisticated Intelligence, etc., etc., ' " and half the time when I get to the board, I have n ' t even an inspiration, nothing but chalk. Of course the Flu changed things from their normal conditions a lot. We lost some of our best men and it sure threw a lot of gloom over the whole place. And that was n ' t all. The Upper Classmen, quarantined in the grounds, with no hops nor athletics to break the monotony, devoted their whole attention to us, and the result was most discomforting. For their nerves certainly were on edge, and as for us, new to the game, still lacking the Navy spirit, which is usually instilled into the Plebe classes out on the football field during the first days of October, we were just out of luck. A number of our classmates could n ' t stand the gaff, and wrote home complain- ing. It did n ' t do them a bit of good, and it did do everybody else a lot of harm. It was then the pap sheet came into its own. Well, finally we started our football season with a cracking victory, and continued to sweep our opponents down the field for the rest of the season. It made a wonderful change in the situation. We had no Army game, and the Great Lakes, who took their place, while taking the long end of a 7-6 score on that fateful Novem- ber day, did n ' t beat us. Jack, not by a crock o ' Navy butter, they did n ' t. But it sure was heart-breaking. While I speak of football, ' 22 cer- tainly did her share this year. Two men won the yellow " N " and quite a few won their class numerals. Believe me. Jack, we ' re proud of those fellows, and by the way, ' 22 did n ' t stop at football. We ' ve got men in every sport. The next thing that took up an unusual amount of our attention was the dope about Christmas week. Oh, we had the inside dope " straight " via the Com, the Chaplain, the Ed of the Log, somebody ' s dad who knew the Supe, respec- tively promising twenty-four hours, seventy-two hours, five days, and even a week, and, — naturally we fell for it. Won- derful plans of flying trips home and all that, you know. To make a long story short, we did n ' t get any leave. A lot of our coming snakes busted out Christmas week, but as I had the folks down here I did n ' t take much interest in anything else. I will say, though, that the average of ' 22 ' s femmes was con- siderably above well, y ' know. The holidays passed quickly enough, and we soon found ourselves making desperate efforts to pull around on the 331 ■ ■ _j ■ ■ sunny side of the Christmas tree. Again our class was decreased, and with those lost went some darn good fellows. It ' s funny, Jack, to see how the fellows take it when they bilge. Some just lie around the last few weeks, and dream of home and the old farm, and others stand around and sweat when they anticipate their first meeting with Dad. However, most of them can go home with their heads up, because it ' s no disgrace to bilge from here. A lot of our most efficient and best-liked officers are men who were either bilgers or near-bilgers. A lot of these fellows will come back to try again with ' 23, and believe me Jack, my hat ' s off to a fellow with that kind of grit. Now comes the big period of counting the days, sleeps, and butts, and as I write, they are getting wonderfully few, so I ' 11 knock off, hoping you ' ve got a fair idea of how the Class of ' 22 has hit the road upward. Yours entirely, AL. Crr::: c. U. S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland. Mother, Dear : Now, I wish you would n ' t write me and say that I never write you. It ' s only been a month since I wrote last, and during that time I have only received fourteen letters from you. Why, one letter is much better than most of the fellows can do. You ought to see my room-mate ! He has only written home twice — once before Thanksgiving and once before Christmas. He says that the Executive Department conducts his correspondence for him, — monthly. Mother, there is something you must do for me. When I get back from the cruise I ' m going to have everything ready to shove off for leave. I ' 11 get in about eight o ' clock, and I figure, if I only take time to go down to the Tailor Shop and get my Youngster Blouse, and run up and see who is in my old room, and go around and say hello to some of my friends and get brushed off, and packed up, and make the other arrangements, that I ought to be able to shove off about eight or nine or so. At any rate I ' 11 land at home before breakfast the next day. Now, here ' s the favor I 332 want ; you know the kind of breakfasts I used to eat so much of — some of those pan-cakes and syrup and steak and ice-cream, or whatever it was you had Sunday mornings. That ' s all I ' m asking — just now. You know, I have decided to be different from the regular line of Youngsters next year. I ' m not going to pay a bit of attention to ' 23. Why, you would be surprised to see how some of these Youngsters seem to go out of their way to make us assume the correct military bearing and the like. Not that it may not be all for the good — I can ' t see it that way at all. A Plebe has enough to worry about without having to think of himself all the time. Oh, I ' 11 make a few exceptions ! You know Oscar O ' Sullivan, that big guy who used to thinkhe was so muchbetter than I? I remember one night I was going to take Susie out to the movies, and he drove up to the door in his roadster just as I came around the corner — well, I just found out that he was prepping out here in town. He came up to me and said, " Why, hello Aloysius, " and I went right up to him and said, " Now listen here, Oscar, there was a time when you thought you were a better man than I was, but now you want to pray either that you or I bilge, because every dog has his day, " and then I walked right off without even looking at him. You should have seen the expression on his face ! Of course it ' s a custom to spoon on fellows from your own home state — and I will, but for a while — I ' m only human. Well, Mother, taps will bust in a few minutes, tattoo blew about four minutes ago, and I have to be in bed, because I saw a red-headed First Classman standing outside of my door, and I think he wants to put me on the report — I told him one time that, personally, I sure did hate red hair, and I was glad mine was n ' t. So, good night, and tell Dad I hope he gets that wheat in the right place, and tell Susie just to wait until she sees my uniform. Your loving son, Aloysius. 333 fJA k £- ..-.• y ' jlii Il IQuv onoreb O That these honored dead — these gradu- ates of our Alma Mater who died in action or succumbed to disease contracted in active service — shall not have died in ' ain — May they have fitting memorial in the inspiration they have left to future classes who go forth into the Service for which they gave their all.

I I ,Ji EING the account of the first voyage of the Class of 1920, as ragged from the diary of Mid. J. O. Mess, concocted aboard the U. S. S. Wyoming, A. D. 1917. d June 15 — Dear diary. This line-a-day stuff is aU weU and good when you ' re not one of the junior officers of a real fighting ship like this ballyhoo. Of course, so far, our duties have been mostly those of acquiring knowledge — and I ' ve learned about everything there is — ship, turbines, torpedo rooms, interior communication, fire control, I know ' em. all. And when the time comes that we shove across (it ' s most any day now according to dope) I know the skipper will rely on us for a lot of details that he wont be able to take care of himself. Of course we figured that the cruise was going to be one big rest cure and enjoyment of Youngster rates, but we don ' t rate so very much, and one night in ou t of four ain ' t no rest cure. But then this is war time, and we ' ve got to be ready. ■P I 359 d ' C. June 22 — Rotten luck, today, diary. The officer-in-charge-of- mid- shipmen ragged our smoke hall in the blower room under the J. O. country, and two guys, me included, bounced the pap. No liberty for two weeks, and ten demerits. It would n ' t have been so bad if some fish had n ' t doped out that the blower fed the forward magazines, and the skipper ' s hot under the collar yet about them skag butts sifting down on top of his TNT. C June 25 — I ought n ' t to take time to write to you tonight, diary, but something so funny happened last night I got to do it. The poor fish who was standing J. J. O. D. in the rain, leaned up agin the life lines of the after gangway for a snooze, and fell overboard. Nobody heard or saw him, and it was plain horseshoes that he nabbed the boat line and come aboard again. Then he reported his return to the Officer of the Deck and went around to cuss out the sentry for not yelling, " Man Overboard, " as cool as if nothing had happened. But he lost his cap, and now he ' s wearing a C. P. O. headpiece that s a perfect salvo. C July 5 — The glorious Fourth is over. More full dress ship, big feed, and Uberty for all hands. Yorktown is a rotten place to make a liberty, tho. I saw the first queen I ' ve glimpsed since June Week, and got so excited I nearly fell off the dock. I found out afterwards it was the Navigator ' s wife, so I did n ' t say much. The Bevo was pretty kippy, tho. 36U t i C Discovered a new place to ketch. Of course they say there ' s danger from hydrogen in the battery charg- ing station, but it ' s so far aft nobody would ever hear a little explosion like that, and anyway what ' s a chance or two, compared to a Fat. d July 11 — Target practice today. Fruit for me, battle station in the Plotting room. The Exec was n ' t at his regular battle station, but inspect- ing around all the time. He was down there when the first salvo went and standing under one of the outlets of those big vent pipes. When them twelve-twelves cut loose I thought a magazine or sumthing had blown up, but the Exec thought it was the end ; for about a tenth of a second after the explosion a monkey wrench, three nuts, a handful of spikes, and a boat compass descended from that aforementioned vent pipe all over a new sixte en dollar cap . I know we were too far below to get any of the blast from the guns, but just the same that place was so blue for about three minutes the tracker could n ' t see the target bearing indicator. I ' d have laughed if I was going to be hung for it. One-o in grease, but I swear it was worth it. C July 19 — Dope ! The real thing ! We ' re going to sail for New York next week, three days in, and then across, liberty in London, U-boats, ten bars in one night in the Quartier Latin. Some class ! I can ' t write for sheer exuberance. C July 20 — The dope still holds. The Captain ' s got his orders, and we ' re going to up the hook some time this week. I know K L » B E« f K mM BP 1 " ' M 1 JP- ' 9 X 361 ' tr jf m we ' re going, because I heard Spuds (that ' s our division officer) say the other day he could n ' t imagine what the ship would be like without us any more. C July 21 — They say it ' s cold up around New York, and I ' 11 sure be glad to elude this hole. As that Limie told the skipper while he was aboard the other day he understood at last why Cornwallis surrendered. On the mid last night it was a hundred and sixty in the fire rooms, and when I went topside to cork, the wind blew one of my blankets over- board. But Steve says we ought to leave by day after tomorrow, and he ' s old enough to know, anyway. CL July 29 — Shanghied ! Can you imagine it diary ? Just when we were all set for a glimpse of the Great White Way and a swift passage, New York to Liverpool, some low-down wireless operator went and ragged a message ordering that we be tran- shipped to Bat Force One. My God, what ' s the Navy coming to, when a man with my experience can ' t get a crack at the War Zone. We come aboard this crab Saturday, and Sunday morning saw the Fighting " Wy " slip out on her long trip. Homesick ? I never hated to see a ship shove off so bad in my life. C August 10 — This old fore -and -after has her good points after all. Rest cure? Sure. And there ' s a peach of a Youngster hangout in the after T. D. station. Ketch all day and cork all night, when the cinders hain ' t too bad. S ' i! ' ) , 30,3 t C Anyway I can ' t find it in my heart to rhino. Got her letter today, and she says she ' 11 be waiting at the train — she ' s got something to give me if the crowd aint too big. And leave only 11 days away. CAugust 11 — Buckets-of-slum, diary — we ' re gone to sea after all. The whole blooming Fleet upped the grapples today and stood down to the Roads — and out. Cape Charles light andthen the whistling buoy — they ' re all behind now. Nothing but stars topside, and water all around. It would be great if the old craft was n ' t getting a little unsteady. d August 15 — Still the same. Same roll ' n everything. But I got my sea-legs now. Up in the hang-out this afternoon when we rolled one way I could look down and see green water beneath me on that side, and when we rolled the other way, same there. C August 16 — I was on deck last night when over in the sixth division I see all the searchlights shoot on and a gun go off. We thought it was a sub sure, but afterwards we found out it was only a man overboard. He ought to have drowned for arousing false hopes, but the Never Done picked him up. C August 19 — Yea, Navy ! In Port Jefferson six hours, and ordered to the Seattle for a fast run back to Crabtown. I wonder what Sep leave ' s like anyway. But I can ' t write, I ' ve got to get my gear packed and stand by to shove. The cruise is done, and while I ' m strong for the navy, it ' s home I want to be. •M ffM " I ' H U. S. S. Batforone, June 10, 1918. Dear Jerry : WELL, old salt horse, here we are. The blasted cruise is three days shot. So far we have been instructed merely to become acquainted with the ship. At first I thought it was easy, but My God, Jerry, this old ballyhoo is divided into so many non- water tight subdivisions it would take a guide accustomed to the catacombs of ancient Rome to make his way safely from. Gun Compartment 12 to the excuse-for-a-bridge-deck. They swear she ' s got two torpedo rooms, but in three days I have n ' t been able to find either of them. d I was doggone sorry to leave you the day before we shoved, Jerry, but I hope you had a fine trip to lil ' old New York, and that your cruiser cruise will prove as exciting as ours promises »■ . ' s 365 ' y ■ J to be barnacled. I ' 11 never forget that " last day before " back in Crabtown. Them nine hours in ranks put the kibosh on me for fair, especially the feet I had so joyfully encased in a pair of non-reg brogans that morning in honor of First-Class rates. But that first reg Fat was good, old boy, and I hope that time will heal both my blisters and wounded vanity. C As I was saying, we shoved the next morning after you did. Four o ' clock revenie, gear on the sea wall by six, and the old Shady Side shanghied us out into the Bay where nearly the whole of Bat Force One was lying in wait. I ' 11 admit the old tub has some pep, for we had no more than boarded her when she heaved in the hook and made knots for Hampton Roads. There we disembarked a couple more cruiser gangs for ships lying in the Roads, and then we began to settle down to ship routine. Routine is good, Jerry, for we coal ship tomorrow — hownell they git that way is more than I can see — three days aboard and coal ship — but such is life, and the sooner it ' s over the longer it will be ' til I see a lighter agin. C We thought we ' d coal here and had visions of a meal ashore at any rate, but last night we got under way for Base II — no liberty, reg grub, and a coaling tomorrow. C It ' s a hard life, Jerry, and if I survive to disemprune at some far distant date from this ancient bally-whacker I think I ' 11 haze the steam department until I graduate early — 366 T O i very much early — by request. This is no life for a married man, anyway — why, I have n ' t even had a letter since we left Crabtown. It can ' t go on like C Hell ' s bells — no just eight bells Jerry, and I have a watch which should have started for me fifteen minutes ago, so it ' s au re voir. Yours in ennui, Joe. The Armored Cruiser Squadron, At Sea, June 17, 1918. Dear Joe : MY orderly just delivered your letter, and I am sure glad to hear that they are running the wagon to suit your ideas. As you know, we left Crabtown shortly before you shoved off, and grabbed the plush on wheels for New York. Chaperoneless, we arrived in the big town about noon. Some of the boys were keen for visiting the Aquarium, while the guide book of the opposition pointed to the Bronx Zoo. But the more conservative element managed to steer the bunch into the subway, and by three that afternoon, the Navy had us again. CL When we reported aboard, the Exec told us how things i Si 3C7 .. r!? . ::: V K stood — you know what I mean, be- cause you were handed the same hne yourself. Our expectations re- ceived a jolt, when a hard-looking bos ' n ' s mate murmured something about drawing hammocks, if we cared about turning in that night. For a moment, Joe, it looked as if we had drawn the joker in the cruise deal, but there was nothing to do but lay below and grab a comfortable billet. Well, to make it short, we drew brand new hammocks, the kind that get crummy so easily, and need such frequent scrubbings, got our evening chow, which was mainly cold hot dogs, saw the movies, and turned in. There ' s where we have it on you, — movies under the lee of the bright lights that line the bank of the North River and make the screen so dim you can ' t see whether the hero is making love to his girl or his brother. C We stayed in the same berth for a week, and spent two days in taking on coal. It seemed like we took the stuff aboard in half -peck baskets, and I believe that they thought our compartment was Bunker-B-26. Well, at 4 bells on the 15th, we upped the mud-hook, and stood down to Tompkinsville, where there was a fleet of showy looking bateaux. There was something mysterious about the whole business, for we anchored right near them, and made several ofl cial visits. d The next morning, when I was standing J. O. to the J. O. O. D. we got underway once more, and moved into what were ' ' } 369 m ' . F new waters for me. We were soon followed by the " circus, " and I gathered the dope that we were the " ocean escort " to this convoy. Noth- ing has been stirring since then, only we ' ve been zig-zagging all over the face of the drink. Except for a little internal strife, I everything has been rosy. We don ' t mind (not very much) turning out at one bell to see that our own private portion of the topside is waxed down properly. And, Joe, the Exec says that if you want a thing well done, you should do it yourself. And that ' s just what we ' re doing. The fellows in the Black Gang have taken six indicator cards apiece, but then they only have a watch in three. d We are just starting to roll the least bit, so those off watch thought they ' d cork until they got used to it. Not that any of us will be sick, for that last cruise in the Chesapeake made us proof against that, but it ' s better to be wise all the time. Of course a little roll feels good, but I think that I ' 11 turn in soon, just to be safe. C Well, Joe, remember me to Tangier, and all the little stores in Yorktown, but to tell the truth, I think, we ' ve got the fruit. Your sea-going Jerry I ' fQ % t! :j70 I- June 25, 1918. Dear Jerry: YOU may think you ' ve got the fruit of the cruise deal, but just wait until you hear this line. I ' m. living in an Admiral ' s quarters! Fact! The skipper of this rehc of ante-bellum, days is sure one white man. Two days after we dropped the grapple in Base II he cleared out his effects from, the old Admiral ' s cabin — the tub ' s no longer a flagship, thank Heaven — and turned it over to the Midshipmen as a study room, library, and general hangout. The only restriction is that we ' re not allowed to smoke there, and that ' s small deprivation, for no one ' s awake long enough to ketch. After swinging in hammocks all night, those leather upholstered davenports and rugs about three inches thick on the deck sure are a haven of rest. d We had that coaling bee all right, and it was n ' t from, a lighter, but from our old friend, Jupiter. She breezed alongside before sunset the night before, and we turned out and turned to at four a. m., no error on L. A. T. The gang turned to with a will, and I guess the crew thought a hurricane had descended on them., for there was n ' t an idle man aboard from the time " commence firing " busted until we knocked off for chow. Had the coal aboard and the field day well underway by noon. The skipper was tickled all over in spots, and I think the donation of the cabin was a result. d Long hours and hard work is the order of the day, but at " m n Ws 371 1 night the movies and the long cork. We have no night watches except underway, and day ' s duty instead of watches for the black gang. One day out of four is pretty soft. C Drawing conclusions from Young- ster cruise don ' t fit this voyage much. We are not regarded as nuisances, but rate officer in every- thing except pay. The other night it rained so hard we could n ' t have movies on deck — they had them in the ward room instead. We were invited, and the show was hardly under way when the Exec had the cigars passed around. Some class for a Midshipman ' s cruise, huh, Jerry? C We got those little instruction books today, and it looks as if there was going to be plenty of boning along with practical experience this trip. We ' ve already had two P-Works in Nav, and they made anything the department slipped us last year step out to keep in sight. The Navigator says he ' s going to teach us something, and I guess he ' 11 succeed, if we don ' t die of the mental strain. Four sights a day — turn out before reveille for one and out after taps for the other. But it ' s good dope, Jerry, and it ' s going to make three periods per week of fruit after we start the last lap next October. C Heard dope today that the cruise was going to be shortened to give us a full month ' s leave, but I don ' t spoon on it much — it ' s too good to be true. d Have n ' t received that other letter you promised so I 1 ■ ' ¥- S7i Mftk. I Vl f, suppose you ' re out among the subs and camouflage. Just the same, I would n ' t swap this tub for any ship in the Fleet if she were only going somewhere. Yours at peace, Joe. Opposite 96th Street, July 3rd, 1918. Dear Joe: WELL, here we are in the greatest little port again, and before tearing myself away from the ship to go on liberty, it behooves roe to dash you a lin e, letting you in on the doings. Our orders beat us out of that London liberty which looked like the straight goods only a little while ago, and when we were within two hundred miles of the Isles, we put the bloomin ' helm over, and shaped a great circle for Greenwich Village and Fifth Avenue. C Now for some first hand dope from the War Zone, Joe. Believe me brother, this is the straight stuff, for you know I ' ve been there, and am able to let you in on the truth for once. Well, as soon as we hit the infested waters, the Old Man called us all down to his cabin, and told us how he expected us to help him see the cruise through in good style. I ' ll bet he felt better when we assured him of our support, for we told him that we were on board to learn and help. Things were zigzagging merrily along that evening, when, " so help me Pontius Pilate, if I did n ' t think I saw the biggest sub ever, about five city blocks, I mean two thousand yards, on 1 374 h our port bow. I did n ' t think I had a right to the honor of reporting it, but somehow it seemed the only thing to do, so I bawled out the information to O. O. D. Right off the bat, Joe, the general alarm sounded, and I dived down to my battle station, which was the gen- eral supervision of the anchor engine. I could hear lots of action on the topside, but after about five minutes, " Secure " busted, and I returned to the bridge. The first bird I ran afoul of was Jack, who said it was a sure sub and a more sure sunken one by now. He was on his way below to log it in his " Diary of the Great War. " Well, when I got back on watch, I noticed an unnatural glitter in the eye of the Exec who was saying something to the O. O. D. to the effect that if those wise mids. knew their own ships, there would n ' t be so many false alarms. But it sure was a sub for a Reserve said he saw it also. Of course that proves nothing, but you know me, Joe, and I tell you myself that I saw it. CL We are navigating aboard this ballyhoo, as they never navigated in Maury Hall. Great Circle Sailing, dipsy sounding and all. None of this back-channel stuff for mine. There all you have to do is to hail some beach comber and he ' 11 give you the error on your chronometers, watch time of L. A. Noon, and your true position. But in this job it takes brains and that ' s why we ' re making good. Of course, that Admiral ' s cabin listens well, but we ' ve got soft pine decks and don ' t need 3 375 i three inch carpets. You know, I went ashore yesterday afternoon for an hour ' s stroll on the beach, and some girl behind me remarked about the man ahead of her with the sea- going roll. It does come natural, and we can ' t help it, if they pick us out for deep-sea men. Mac got some tick- ets for the FoUies tomorrow night; four tickets, mind you, and we are certainly dragging heavy. They say that my girl is the queen of all the boroughs, excluding Brooklyn for obvious reasons.Well, Joe, drink a lot of Bevo for me tomor- row, as the stuff is n ' t popular enough to sell in this town, and I ' 11 reciprocate by enjoying the show for you. The other day the Exec said: " When you gentlemen, (get that), are in port, your liberty will be unrestricted, but when we ' re at sea, your work is also to be unlimited. " And beUeve me, that ' s us. d Let me hear a buzz on the long-distance wire, if you ever get within striking distance of a ' phone again, and until then believe me, Your cruisin ' classmate, Jerry. P. S. I ' 11 mail this at Times Square just to prove to you that it ' s stni there. 371! JiUy 12, 1918. Dear Jerry : WE had a little piece of luck last week. Lost an anchor overboard, the skipper lost his self control, and we lost a liberty — but at the same time it ' s had the beneficent eflFect of laying us up for a week in Base II to allow everybody on board to recover their composure. You may laugh at my being thankful for laying over a week in the base, but Jerry, you don ' t know what work is until you get on one of these crabs that goes out in the morning and comes back at night — all hands at their stations for getting under way and coming to anchor. I might just as well go on watch and stay on — it amounts to the same thing, and the net results of laying over is to take the long sleep and the rest cure combined. C From the way you wrote you must have had Fourth of July dinner in the gay metrop, but I ' 11 bet that Riggs ' did n ' t have a thing on the layout the chief commissary slipped the boys that day. It ' s a fact that we did n ' t have mahogany tables and obsequious (is that a good word, Jerry?) waiters, but we had three New Orleans mokes that could get more chow aft from the gaUey in less time than any I ' ve ever seen. And since we were at anchor we had a barge load of fresh fruit. The crew had a field day — the real thing, not cleaning up after a coaling, and there were some mighty funny races and contests aU thru the day. There was a prize up of twenty-five w -1 377 beans for the man that found the kaiser. I could have found him easy, myself, Jerry, after all my training Youngster cruise in looking for a safe place to skag, and my jeans were itchin ' to feel the tinkle of them good shekels, but Midshipmen were barred from participation. C I made an important discovery yesterday. You can buy Fatimas, the real Navy article aboard this mis- anthropy for 12 cents a pack. Accord- ing to higher math that ' s a saving of 48 cents per carton, so wrhen you see me coming ashore with a box as big as a bale of hay (damn, how I slip back to that verdant phraseology) you 11 know what ' s in it, and that I ' m not importing a wife from Penniman. C You make me wish this cruise was sizzling and frying in a place that ' s hotter than Tangier Sound when you sound off the number of times you ' ve been across or are going, Jerry. I don ' t savvy why all of us could n ' t have been lucky, and at any rate why a few brains were n ' t mixed in with the formula by which we were assigned to ships. But then, Jerry, counting up from today, and omitting the last week for good luck, it ' s only some 40 days until we ' 11 be looking for the chapel dome again. I guess I can stand it that long, but it ' s an awful mental strain for one in my position. Joe. P. S. We went ashore yesterday afternoon to correct magnetic compasses, and found a place where they keep cider what am. 379 S2 Virginia may be dry, but there ' s no more Bevo for us. Joe. Again at sea, July 28th, 1918. Joey Boy: SAME place, same ocean, same weather, that I told you about two letters ago. Absolutely no change. Just at present, forty-five per cent of the Midshipman complement is wrapt in deepest slumber, and it looks as if only an attack would turn them out. However, the boys that are on watch, are there on all fours. We have a habit of stand- ing about twelve hours out of twenty-four, when we are this far out, and the other twelve are spent in boresighting the old bunk. I am gouging on Morpheus myself, but if I don ' t get this spiel off my chest now, you ' U never hear from me, as I don ' t intend to turn out until the next liberty. C Oh, Joe, that last liberty! Visions — Joe, that ' s all I ' ve got to say. — Dinner, Follies, Supper, Dancing, Motoring, in fact everything that is n ' t heard of in Yorktown. Our three diags were both service and wound chevrons to every one that saw them. The folks ashore say that the battleship bunch are fine boys all right, but how they admire a man who has seen water instead of the muddy bottom, every time he looks over the side. C My gang has engines now, and we are picking up quite a bit of dope. We know the indicator cards of all the cylinders per- sonally, and the instant we stick our heads below the protective 380 deck, we can tell the R. P. M., and the temperature of all the bearings. Of course, the deck watches have the bulge on this department, but to be completely sea-going, you ' ve got to take a crack at all of them. One Godsend on this battle-wagon, is that note-book work is very, very scarce, and I think that we are doing better for the lack of it. C This ocean is the coolest one I ' ve ever cruised on, Joe, and I can sympathize with you, back there in Hell ' s Own Kitchen. Why, last night I went up on the topside to take a breath, after a mid below, and it took me about two solid hours to thaw out. I know you ' 11 appreciate that, for I ' ve spent one too many summers in the Bay. Three days ago we had a storm that was a storm. We rolled so much that we had to walk on the longitudinal bulkheads, for the decks were up and down most of the time. If I had n ' t had my sea-legs, I would have broken an arm, but as it was, I only threw my shoulder out a bit. C Of course we have a brush with a sub every now and then but sinking them becomes monotonous, once the novelty has worn off. When we get back, I ' 11 give you a slant at my diary, which contains the entire truthful story of the convoy service. C The Skipper seems to be so pleased with us, that I think we ' 11 stay aboard, as watch officers, — or something. This life do require one to keep on one ' s toes and it ' s me for it, when I graduate. J i i 381 , EZ. 5 €[ Well, Joe, don ' t by any means let the old pen get rusty, but wise me up to all the Yorktown scandal, when- ever you have the time, which I sup- pose, is pretty often. We expect to make Portsmouth next, and if they don ' t insist upon entertaining us too much, I ' 11 write you from there. Yours, Jerry. ' - ' Richmond, Virginia, August 10, 1918. Dear Jerry: AS you see by the heading of this letter I ' ve finally separated myself temporarily from the ancient bateau which is now my legal residence. It ' s only a small trip, not so much as a 48 for us, so we left the ship in Base II before breakfast and beat it up here by motor — not one of the tin Henrys you saw so many of in Yorktown last cruise, but a real four-wheeled gas buggy, guaranteed to do 35 knots on low. She darned near did it, too, and one blow-out was the extent of our misfortunes. C This is a punk town to make a liberty in, tho. It ' s supposed to be the capital of a state, but then so is Crabtown, and they are about on a par. The main reason I came was to see what a civUized bill-of-fare looked like once more, and even that was gross ignorance, on Sunday, anyway. Slim and Mac lamped a couple of skirts just after we blew in, and they ' ve been trying 382 w ii o 13 zig-zag tactics and submarine meth- ods of approach for the last two hours, but without much success. If I was n ' t so doggone sore on life in general I ' d go show ' em how to cop the cornfeds — you know me when it comes to wimmen, Jerry — knock ' em dead — but they haint no zest in the pursuit of divertation these days — not after riding 30 miles to git a square meal and all the embellish- ments and wind up in a town where blue laws prevail. C But speaking of parties, Jerry, reminds me of that little affair we had under discussion for the night before leave in Baltimore. There ' s no telling when we ' 11 be able to get together, but from present dope, and it seems pretty straight, you ought to reach Crabtown by train the evening before we disemprune on the seaward side of Greenbury Point light. If you do, Jerry, you know where the tailor ' s got that non-reg suit of service, and my cit shirts and mid-watch gear is mostly down at the laundry. Assemble it lovingly, Jerry, and then we ' 11 be all ready to shove as soon as I hit the beach and rob some Plebe of a shave and a bath. The San Diego gang (they had all the luck, eh Jerry ? Real heroes when they hit the home village on leave) write, after spending their ten days at the Academy, that the new Plebes are a poor lot. But then they ' re always that, and they ' 11 soon begin to take polish after leave. You need n ' t get my class ring, Jerry. I ' ve got to hesitate long enough to grab off that miniature I was telling you about 884 anyway. It ' s going to be a wonder, old boy, and the little girl back home it ' s going to — she ' s — but why try to explain. It only makes me more rhino to think of the long days that I ' ve got to pass in a 165 degree fire room before I ' m going to sit out the first eight dances with her again. C I ve got to close, for the gang ' s passing the word it ' s time to start. If anything happens to that car on the way back the ship ' 11 be in Tan- gier Sound before I see Yorktown again, and I ' m afraid things would n ' t go just right if so many of us were missing. We ' re almost indispensable on that ship now, at any rate I heard the skipper tell the Exec we ' d cer- tainly made our presence felt aboard. But then we always did make good, n ' est-ce pas ? I ' ve got to grease up on my French again, Jerry, so the folks ' 11 all think I ' ve been over among the frog-eaters when I see the Promised Land again. C One blast on the siren outside, so I ' ve got to go. Remember me to all the old gang, Jerry, and tell ' em I ' U stand treat in Baltimore, just 20 days from tonight. Joe. i ' m Portsmouth, N. H. August 25th, 1918. Dear Joe : NO, Joe, I ' m not in the jug, as you may think from the above address. We are just putting in a little time in dry-dock to have 385 !::i I our bottom massaged, and I guess it needs it, judging from the distance we ' ve cruised since I joined this out- fit. Incidentally, a port like this is a rest-cure, after so much of Man- hattan, and we are whUing away the time in good old-fashioned style. The natives are informal and very, very human, so it does n ' t cost us much to make a liberty. d My girl ' s letter came with the first man aboard, and oh what a mis- sive. It seems that she has met up with a handsome sailor from Pelham, and " he ' s so lovely, " that it looks as if it were Navy, (you know the Navy I mean, Joe), goodnight. And just as I was beginning to see that little home in the woods, and commencing to quake about the J. O. pay-roU. But I replied, and told her that she did n ' t know a good thing when she saw it, and I guess that she ' s feeling sorry by now. C That bunk about no note-book work was all wrong. Joe. It seems that I was a little premature, as it were. You see, one day they told us to hand in our books, and the whole crowd was found wanting. We put forward a passionate appeal, tell- ing the Exec how much we had learned, but the line was light, very light. The result is that I am crawling thru voice-tubes all day, making rough sketches, and it takes me aU night to write up the smooth log. The Chief told us if we worked hard enough, we might discover something that nobody else knew of, and believe me I ought to have found dirtless coal by this time. 386 W iP ' But absolutely nothing new has turned up, and in fact, they seem to locate several errors in my master- pieces of greasiness. If they know the wagon so well, what ' s the object of our work ? I ' m beginning to feel Rhino for the first time, and it sure is a strange feeling. The reason is that I ' ve just had a slant at my amount available. Honest Injun, Joe, it ' s the smallest thing I ever saw, but they wrote it up good and large, so that I ' d know that there was no white stripe constant. I pored over the thing for about an hour, and cuss it, I can ' t find a bust. But, thank God, the Bank is stUl in Crabtown, and it ' s the only comforting thought. CL We know this ballyhoo from keel to truck now, for we ' ve crawled around the floor of this dock, trying to find any sprung rivets. Why don ' t they make a line fast to each rivet from, the inside, and then if she springs, just haul her in again. They ' ve got about a thousand mUes of my battle station, (the anchor cable), strung out on the dock, and I ' ve inspected it so often that each link knows me by name. C Our last trip was uneventful, except for the usual number of subs. We ' ve been across so often, that we know all the land- marks now, and we don ' t have to navigate. Chick has figured that we have seen at least three million men across, and figures don ' t lie. C Only four days more, Joe, and then I ' U show you what a real thirst is. I hope to pull into Crabtown on the twenty-ninth. 387 % I and will probably bunk there for the night. So, expect to see me giving you the North and South, when you come over the sea wall wrestling with three or four laundry bags, and paying a moke to trip you up. Tell me, why do they make us go back to the Academy, when it ' s easier for us to go straight home? I ought to stop and gladden some of the girls in New York with a kind word, but we are going down on the Federal, and it pulls into the Thoity-Thoid street Station at 12 — midnight. Well, I ' ve got to beat it on liberty now, a girl has promised to teach me how to milk a cow. C Best luck in your cruise up the Bay. Jerry. Bellfontaine, Ohio, September 1, 1918. Dear Jerry : THE little wrist chronometer indicates seven bells of the mid- watch, but if I ' m going to write to you at all it ' s got to be before I turn in. But any way, ' taint no mo ' " I can ' t git ' em up, " so I can make up for it in the morning. C That was sure one mad race we had for that W. B. A. special, Jerry, and if you had n ' t had my gear all ready we ' d never have made it. That ' s about all the recollection I have of the interval between disembarkation and waking up on my train next morning. Who put me there, anyway, Jerry ? I swear I ! . I 389 ■ f. I had n ' t exceeded the average capac- ity! There was n ' t any band out to meet me when I hit the podunk, just the old man with the machine. But she joined the expedition about 50 miles up the line, and say, Jerry, I would not have known the difference if they ' d had the home guard paraded at present arms when I dropped off the flyer. That ' s where I ' ve been tonight, and oh, boy! But then I don ' t need to teU you about it, Jerry — you ' ve probably lived thru the same thing by this time. €1 I ' ve been here two days, and the natives are still in ignor- ance as to my summer whereabouts. The censorship has its virtues when it makes it impossible for you to divulge to the adoring populace that you spent three months of perfectly good war time in the Chesapeake. I feel like a slacker sometimes, Jerry, but you all know it was n ' t because we did n ' t want to see the real thing that we ' re not wearing both war service and wound chevrons, — and as you say, three diags go a long ways, especially with the wimmen. C[ There goes eight bells, Jerry, and that ' s my taps this morning. I ' m getting tired of the suburbs and expect to take a jaunt into the city next week. I ' m going to be pretty busy from now on, the mayor and several other prominent citizens have invited me to various social affairs, and I ' ve got to do the Navy justice, so if you don ' t hear from me again until I turn up in Crabtown, about 9:59 a. m. on the 21st, don ' t worry. C Give my regards to her, old boy. I know just how you feel. Joe. 390 . c4c C «-?0 ? fr? CJ?S e eg «4 eg «g eg «g « « e c tv!» EY there gang, wireless tower ' s in sight!

It has synonyms but no antonyms. Synonymously it is gloom, desjiair, swabo, conduct grade, the Reina, pap sheet and such; antonymously it might be caramels, Sep. lea e, four-o. kisses, oh boy — but that ' s speaking figuratively. It " s not a naval state. Midshipman Shad Armstead was rhino. How this naval state of mind descended suddenly ui on Midshipman Armstead demands an explanation. When a Midshipman is six feet one and built to that scale, a three-striper, and wears two X ' s. the rhino state ill becomes him. It ' s like a Plelje who has just received a five s])ot from home and draws his dollar-fifty allowance. Rhinoism IS a luxury reserved for buzzards, two-one ' s in steam, the extra swinnning squad, and those who have to make out on the dollar-fifty allowance. As I said before, the rhinoism of Shad Armstead demands an explanation and it is coming with forth and due .syntax. This was the way of it. f There was one department in which Shad had l)ii.sted cold. That was the femme department. He was a Red ]Mike, thru chance not choice. That was the tragedy of it. hen he was a candidate, his pred had introduced him casually as an embryonic Red Mike to a second classman. When he became a Plebe, this sec-ond classman who now commanded Shad ' s company, spooned on him and introduced him around as a Red 4111 3 es Jfugging Mike. Before he knew what a Red Mike was, he had accepted that status quo and was one. Now he reahzed that his secret ambition thruout his Naval Academy career had been to become a sosh, a blood, a four-o fusser and heartbreaker. In one week his midshipman days would be over. June Week was one week ahead. He had seven more days to tear down the reputation of four years and build a new one. He was going to do it. f Shad had one pal to whom he entrusted his innermost secrets. That was Bill West, his wife, a blood by birth and predilection, who kept four miniatures in circulation and a waiting list besides. As a parlor snake and a sea lawyer. Bill had no superior and feared no eciual. He was Champion Fusser of the Metropolis of Crabtown and its suburbs, Washington and Baltimore. To Bill, Shad went seeking solace and salvation. As an adviser. Bill was grand. He usually tilted back his chair, cocked his feet on the table, cleared his throat with a few patronizing " Well, lemmesee ' s, " and proceeded to unfold the mysterious formula by which he always went and conquered. " You see. Shad, this is the way to do it. Of course, I " m not bragging about myself, but you know my reputation. I ' m no common fusser. I come by it naturally, having paid due attention to the composition and complexion of women folks and being thus able to assort and rate them by my own process and formula? before beginning the attack. It ' s a wooden man who said that women are mysterious. They all fall, I tell you, when you fuss them the right way. You must never grovel at their feet and supplicate; you must aviate above their heads and make them look up. No femme ever cared for easy fruit. It ' s got to be something hard to get, something everybody else wants. Hence and therefore, when I go a-fussing, I fortify myself with several lockets with curls of divers shades and colors, a strand or two on my left shoulder, and a well assorted supply of violet scented billet-doux. I play with these with care- lessness and precision until her attention is arrested. Then when I am cornered, I sigh in pain and persecution, and tell her what a joy it is to meet a girl like her, adding subtle comparisons deleterious and otherwise painful to the other dames. Just then the phone rings for me and I tell some one I just can ' t come this evening, previous engagement, work to do, and so forth. I do this i)()litely but firmly, in a mood and voice of lassitude and disenchantment, don ' t you know. I have four or five phone calls to come in rapid succession, all timed and paid for, and I pass up enough teas and 402 I 3 es Jfusisiins lunches and dinners to fill a five-striper ' s program for a year. Then when I am suffi- ciently pursued and persecuted, I go back to the sofa and reiterate to her what a joy Vell. it ' s fruit for Bill. It never fails. Take it from me, Shad, the only fellow that a girl reallv wants is her best friend ' s beau. " »■ Thus instructed and advised, Shad immediately instituted proceedings to wreck the fair heart of an unsuspecting victim. Shad ' s sister was attending Miss Soakum ' s Seminary near AYashington. It was called a finishing school, but it was really a Naval Preparatory School. The graduates were guaranteed an ensign ' s commission. Shad wired his sister that he had to have a girl for the hop, and that she had to be the prettiest girl in the seminary; to make the engagement for him and ship her down with the bunch that came with Miss Soakum. Within an hour the message came back: " x m sending my friend Bessie . . . . .beauty . . .take good care of her. " For four solid days. Shad hugged hungrily to his bosom the yellow Western Union slip. In the meantime, he rehearsed faithfully and frantically Bill ' s manual of attack. He also invested a month ' s allowance in fou-fou, monogrammed skags, and chocolates. The deck was cleared for action and the plan of battle for the capture of innocent Bessie was set and i-eady. Bill said that his sister was coming for the hop and he was going to make use of her in the scheme without arousing her suspicion. Trust him! He had never failed and this little act was child ' s play. It was a mere side show to his main circus. " Just leave it to me. Shad; when any one goes into battle under my generalship, he may as well order the miniature before starting. Sis is a good pal. I ' 11 get her to write the billets-doux. She always carries swell stationery and I ' 11 have it scented so as to attract attention. I ' 11 make her give me one of her locks to stick in your pocket and scatter on your shoulder. I ' 11 tell her it ' s a joke I am playing on some one, and she ' 11 never know the difference. As for the telephoning, I ' 11 attend to that myself. " x nd so the nefarious plot to wreck Bessie ' s happiness was staged. On the eve of the June Ball, Miss Soakum arrived with her bevj of naval aspirants and installed them in a select boarding house. There they lay in wait for their prey. At four o ' clock, Shad arrived upon the scene of battle and was presented. It was even as you and I had foreseen and foreordained. Cupid shot straight and Shad lay wounded and bleeding. But mindful of the last orders of his general, he only tarried 403 i D J ' ' i Beg jFus ging long enough " to present his respects, " adcHng that he had several calls to make that afternoon hut he would call in the evening " to become better acquainted. " Mth his heart turning over like a destroyer ' s turbines, he hastily grabbed his cap in the manner of one who has five femmes waiting for him and made a bee-line for Church Circle. There he walked around and around until he had counted five calls, all with the same hasty departure, and started back towards Maryland Avenue when he bumped into Bill. " Look here. Shad, have you lost your senses. I have been watching you sailing around this circle for the last half hour, and I did n ' t know whether vou were walkina ' in your sleep or else had started training again for the track team. " " I have been making social calls Say, Bill, if ever you have been my friend, now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party. I met her! She ' s a beaut, a queen, a I " m in love with her, man; I ' m crazy about her. I have been wondering whether I should follow your system of fussing or go straight to her and ask her to marry me. I can ' t wait; I am getting ready to enter " " ■ A lunatic asylum, " added Bill, disgusted. " Look here. Shad, I had n ' t bargained for a ]Mount ' esuvius eruption. But since I have launched you upon a social career, I must steer you through your first venture and see you back in port safe and victor- ious. Sis came in this afternoon, and I have just left her. She wrote the scented notes but balked at cutting one of her curls. Finally I got her to give me this one. Now, here ' s your paraphernalia of attack. Here are the scented notes, here ' s the golden hair to decorate your shoulder, and here ' s your program. She ' s one of Soakum ' s girls, you said? I know where they are stopping. Between nine and ten, I ' 11 phone you three times and each time you must refuse an invitation to dinner. I " 11 be the best-looking girls in Crabtown and by the time I quit pestering you over the phone, she will be ready and willing to want you all for herself. Don ' t weaken; play the game through. It ' s a great life, if you don ' t weaken. So long; will see you to-morrow and receive your report of the first drive. " Q Shad hastened back to his room in Bancroft Hall. After supper, he equipped him- self bountifully with talcum and chocolates, encased himself within his full-dress blou, and set forth upon his great adventure. 405 3 es JfujSs ing Tlie select boarding house where Miss Soakum always brought her finishers was the graduate school of the Seminary. It was equipped with many fussing nooks and corners. Shad put in a req for the hall nook under the steps where the telephone was. At eight o ' clock sharp he led Bessie to the sacrificial altar. The nook was properly camouflaged and protected against indiscreet intrusions. Shad was mindful of the last injunctions of Bill. He opened hostilities by heaving several sighs of different sizes and significations and cursing his fate for having allowed himself to be inveigled into so many engagements. f " You see Miss Miss Bessie, (she had never been anything but Bessie to him), if I had only dreamed I was going to drag a girl like you, I would have saved up all my time. But I did n ' t know and the girls have been really nice to me, so I have to be nice to them. I can ' t, of course, be in five dift ' erent places at the same time, but I do try to make the rounds. " " Rounds " was the cue to pull out his handkerchief in which had been wrapped the four pink scented notes. These fluttered to the floor in careless precision and brought the desired " Oh! " from Bessie. Shad looked confounded and confused and fumbled the notes with due nerve and nervousness. Then looked at one curiously. " Why, " he exclaimed, " I have n ' t opened this one! Will you permit me? It might he something important. " As she smiled acquiescence, he opened the note, glanced through it, and heaved another sigh composite, this time, of boredom and amusement. " Girls are queer creatures, are n ' t they? Read this, " he said. " You would n ' t know who wrote it and you might help me in understanding it. " Bessie was a woman. She took the note and read it. It ran: " Why didn ' t you come to see me to-night? I am perfectly furious with you and won ' t speak to you again. Won ' t you come to-night? Yours, B. C. " Bessie looked up with a cjueer expression on her face. Shad thrilled! The first symptom! Bessie was touche-ed. Certainly it was jealousy. What else could it be? She read the note through again, examined the paper, scented the violet that rose delicately from the scribbled sheet, and there was a thoughtful contraction of the eyebrows, or was it a frown? Did she really care that nuich? 406 1 3 es jFuss ing Shad glowed in triumph. If he had scored a hit in this preHminary skirmish, imagine for yourself the terrain after he had brought up the heavy ammunition from the rear. He pursued his advantage by throwing carelessly the other notes in her lap. " Read them all, " he said magnanimously. " They are all alike, just as girls must be all alike no, I take it back, " and he looked at her a la Bill. " You are dif- ferent, " he added. " You couldn ' t do a thing like that. It is such a girl to meet a joy no, I mean it is such a joy to meet a girl like you. " And he lay back to watch the effect. Bessie read the notes one after the other. She was certainly overcome. And her face flushed. Shad gently shifted the subject of conversation. " ■ Give her a breathing spell between shocks, " Bill said. " Put at least an hour between Episode One, the scented notes, and Episode Two. the hair-raising stunt. " So Shad retreated, as it were, to the land of small talk. Bandinage, persiflage, and camouflage — Bill had coached him well in these, and Bessie responded generously. When the hour was up, Bessie liked him tremendously and Shad, well. Shad was ready to haul up the Busy Berthas. Thoughtfully absent-minded, he began to pick the strands of golden hair from his left shoulder. He drew each gleaming strand to its fullest length and with careful nonchalance, curled it around his finger. Bessie was fascinated by this operation. Her eyes grew bigger and bigger as he slipped each shiny ringlet from his finger and care- fully placed it in one of the pink envelopes. Shad had scored. When he held her hand in parting, slie looked up at him with her big, blue eyes and said demurely, " It is certainly an honor, Mr. Armstead, to go to a hop with a popular man like you. I certainly appreciate it. " § " The pleasure is all mine, I assure you, " he answered gallantly. And after a thought he added, " You see, you are different from all the other girls. I must reinstate reiterate that. I " 11 see you to-morrow afternoon. " That night Shad slept neither the sleep of the just nor that of the honest. He tossed fitfully upon his bed, and awoke several times to hear himself calling a certain Shad Armstead various and sundry names, ranging from fool properly modified to something approximating a liar. By morning, he hated himself generously and his affection for Bill was forty below zero. Before the latter had fully awakened from his slumbers, he 407 jp ,J} M B -»»■ Jxeg Jfugs ing; heard sounds emanating from the other side of the room which suggested that, with prudence and propriety, he might keep under cover a httle longer, even though reveille had busted long since. So Bill pulled the sheet over his head and turned his face towards the wall. " You need n ' t pretend you are asleep. " shouted Shad. " I ' ve got a score to settle with you. I think you and your fussing modus operandi are on the same rotten level, and I take especial pleasure in informing you of this fact. " " Why, did n ' t it work. " queried Bill in a pacifying tone of voice. € " York. I suppose it did, but I have lost my self-respect. I feel like a cad, and a fool besides. Why, that little girl is the sweetest, finest girl in the world. Don ' t you suppose she has sense enough to figure out that I have been goophing her? And where will I stand then? I have a good mind to go to her and fess up everything. And I won ' t keep your name out of the discussion either. " f " Why don ' t you do it? " exploded Bill. The crisis was over and by getting on the offensive, he thought he might obtain the innnunities of the injured party. f Shad did not answer. He dressed himself and went down to breakfast. During the day, he avoided his friends and kept to himself. His mind was made up. He was going to confess, but he wanted to rehearse a confession thai would not annihilate him completely in her esteem. At four o ' clock, he presented himself, meekly penitent, at Bessie ' s boarding house. The expression on his face must have been a fair index to the inner conflict, for, on seeing him, Bessie exclaimed: " Why, Mr. Armstead, you look ((uite worried! Has anything happened? Have you been cutting your engagements? " " No, Miss Bessie, I have n ' t been cutting any engagements. I have never had any engagements to cut I mean well, I am worried, but I ' 11 speak to you about that later. Let ' s talk awhile first. " f And Bessie, all sympathy and concern, led him to the camouflaged seat under the stairs. There they talked for an hour about momentous c|uestions of no importance, while Shad was gathering courage for the great avowal. Finally when the shades of 409 Beg Jfus sing evening had darkened the fussing corner and Shad could no longer see the disquieting gaze of Bessie ' s questioning eyes, he leaned towards her and spoke. " Miss Bessie, " he began. He could n ' t remember the speech he had rehearsed. " I have a confession to make to you. I hope you will forgive me for what I have done, because I ' m not really to blame. Bill West is to blame f " Bill West? " " Yes, Bill West; he concocted the whole dirty plot. He put me up to the whole thing and helped me to execute it " " Please explain, Mr. Armstead. " " Well, this was what it is I mean, this is what it was. Bill told me that no girl ever cared for a Red Mike. He told me that if I wanted to make an impression on you, I had to pretend that all the girls were in love with me and that I was being fussed to death. He ' s the one who gave me those pink notes yesterday and put the hair on my shoulder and phoned me the invitations to dinner all afternoon. Now, Miss Bessie, I know you are going to despise me, but really I did n ' t know I was going to meet a girl like you, and I do want you to know me as I am. I have been a Red Mike for four years. I have never had a girl, and and I like you so much. Now, tell me honest did did you really get fooled by my stupid actions of yesterday.! " f Shad discerned thru the semi-darkness a smile which gleamed first in Bessie ' s eyes. Then it spread to the two dimples in her cheeks; then it burst into a sweet gurgle which reminded him of woodland brooks. " 1 was n ' t exactly fooled by the notes, Mr. Armstead, " she said, after a pause, " but I was rather nonplussed. You see, I am Bill ' s sister and it did startle me to see you picking strands of my own hair from your shoulders. " There was a moment of tension. Shad experienced the sensation of a house being demolished inside of him. " Bill ' s sister! " he gasped. " Yes, his half-sister, but the only one he has. " " So you wrote ? " 410 3 eg Jfuss ing § " The notes, and gave him one of my curls. I objected, but he told me it was for the Masqueraders. " f " It was, " said Shad, and then he groaned. Oh for the thumb-screws and the (|uartering racks of the Spanish Inquisition! Oh for Satan ' s boiling cauldron and a three-pronged fork! Oh for Bill tied to the end of a rope! Shad was wounded and bleeding. No; he was dead, or thereabouts. His heart had turned cold and was beating faintly. His limbs refused to move. He lay there a most dejected heap of frosted hopes and frustrated ambitions. All that was left for him to do was to rise, make his bow, and walk to the cemetery. Then he heard a sweet, gurgling laugh. Again it reminded him of the music of wood- land brooks. " Why take it so seriously, Mr. Armstead. I like you much better as a Red Mike. " " Do you really mean it, " he gasped. Bessie laughed again and held out her hand to him. And she did not withdraw it. Caramels, Sep leave, four-o, oh boy! And that ' s not speaking figuratively. Shad had found the antonvm for rhino. 411 1 June Week IKE all good things, the pleasure of June Week starts with the anticipation. Sections, drills, liberties — every- thing runs like clockwork, and there is a new zest of life in the very atmosphere. Nature feels the spell, and early begins to clothe the yard in the garments of Spring, the fresh green that turns winter ' s drab into a fairyland of color. Tecumseh covers his sins of the year with a fresh coat of paint, the benches appear on the Lane, and couples appear on the benches. The band comes forth from its winter quarters in the basement, and begins anew to make morning study hours times vv of sweet reverie for the savvy and periods of frantic last minute bon- ing for the wooden. C And so the time runs swiftly and merrily on, until almost before we realize it the sections are marching to the last exam — only a m-onthly exam this time, it ' s true, but nevertheless a final river that has to be crossed before the goal is finally reached. And then the sections come marching back, and the Academic year, with all its pleasures, its sorrows, its disappointments, its successes is over, and June Week is upon us. C After two years, the revival of the Army-Navy game — the bright bits of color on the sun-lit diamond, and the still brighter bits in the stands, where she is sitting, waiting for the long hit that will bring Navy over the finish a run to the good. Does it come? It sure does, and as the sky is rent with the last Four-N, and showers of white caps begin to fall everywhere, the old Japanese bell rings forth its paean of victory to an approving w orld. It ' s a glorious sound, all right, and one that we had almost thought to leave without once hearing. €1 That night the Army-hop. Nothing to what is to be expected before the week is over, but still a fitting festival for ushering in the social evenings of the week. The gym, with its myriad flags and flowers, houses many a happy heart that night — hearts for the Blue, hearts for the Grey, but all for the mystic spell the music and the dance spread everywhere. [ Sunday passes quickly — not much of a day of rest this time, but still a breathing space between what has passed, and the strenuous days to come. In the morning there is the Baccalaureate, followed by the " God be with You, Till We Meet Again. " The haunting strains leave a saddening touch as the thoughts of when that next ' meeting may be, strike home, but as you go forth into the glories of the summer air it gradually drifts into subconscious memory, and the spell of June Week is once more in your blood. C Monday morning dawns bright and clear. The battalions sally forth after breakfast to disport before the Board of Visitors, the Judges, and a host of admiring friends and relatives — a couple to Infantry, another to Artillery, and the last to Seam.anship. The Red and Blue flags go briskly up and down Farragut and Worden fields — hoarse shouts of command fill the air, out on the Severn the water is alive with craft of all kinds from the slowest old cutter to the speedy sub-chasers and dignified Argo and Robert — every m_an in every drUl doing his utmost to prove at the last moment what his training has done for him during the past year. The next day the order is reversed in part — same drills by different battalions, and every one • trying to exceed the accomplishments of " the other Batt " on yester- day. But at last the companies are dismissed, and in a brief space the Lane is again populated — little groups chatting merrily here and there, or solitary couples sauntering up and down the gravel, speaking little, understanding much. d. At last Wednesday comes. An idle morning, and then the last dress parade. The Regiment in blue and white — not full dress since the war disrupted the ancient order — forms in hollow square, and the lucky Four- Striper leads his staflf forth to receive from the daintiest of hands the Regimental colors for the successful Battalion to have and to hold ' til the next year doth them part. The little speech that goes with them is lost to all but a few — but it reaches the ears for which it was intended. Surely that is enough. The final cheer, the last review, and the Regiment as a whole goes to the Armory for the last time. LL C Another dreamy afternoon, and back in the evening for the Class German — perhaps the last class affair that the graduates will ever know. The Grand March, the Arch of Swords, the old Grad ' s Dance — they pass in rapid succession, and with the fleeting moments of happiness another evening passes into the realms of history. C Back in Bancroft — you view again the little white bunk that is to prove its last welcome release from toil. Just for the sake of old times you crawl out on your balcony for a last non-reg smoke — and there, pipe in mouth and basking in the flooding moonlight, the events of three years pass in review — Plebe Summer, Plebe Year, Youngster Cruise, Youngster Leave, back for the last lap — and now out of the wilderness — you smile at the things that looked like calamities — who can ' t smile when the burden has lifted at last? But ev en with the happiness comes a touch of sadness — a lingering wistfulness for the (A years that are gone. Their joys and sorrows have been real, and you have tasted life in the making. Your pipe burns cold, you shiver a little as the morning breeze steals in from the Bay, and you slip back into the room, to turn in and sleep dreamlessly the last night in Bancroft. C Reveille sounds — you are wide awake in an instant — Graduation morning is at hand. A forced entry into a cold shower prepared by the coming Youngsters that leaves you puffing and blowing but fresh and strong for what the day may bring. The last breakfast, the last hour of frenzied packing and laying out the real articles of wearing apparel to be donned when you shall return. You see the under classes fall in and march away — then the last formation sounds, and the class forms for the last time. The march to the Armory is silent — silently still the class passes thru the ranks that still hold its comrades and takes its seats. Attention, ruffles, flourishes — the official party arrives, and H li Graduation is on. Tensely you listen to the addresses, hearing much, rem.errbering little. Maybe you steal a glance at the balcony, and see- C At last the speeches are over — and the long, last muster starts. Somewhere down the list you hear your name — and as one in a dream you march to the platform, and draw the testimonial of work well done. At last the anchor man gets his — C Then comes the reaction. With wild whoops the long line forms, many a battered cap flies balcony ward, and to the refrain of " Out of the Wilderness " the snake dance winds its way out of the Armory — the wild rush for Bancroft, the hasty shifting to natty blues or nattier whites, and the finished product, the perfect Ensign, emerges. C The day passes all too quickly, as dream days will. Evening shadows fall, and the June Ball begins. Lights, music, and happi- ness — with her on your arm you sway thru the strains of the dance, or sit in the shadow of the flags, or roam thru the Yard, and wonder when you two shall meet again. Then comes the last waltz, " Home, Sweet Home. " You realize for the first time that you are leaving the place that you call home, and as the music ceases and the notes of the Star Spangled Ba nner come floating down from the balcony, you feel a haunting sense of loss of something never to be regained. The crowd sifts thru the doors, homeward bound, and June Week and Academy days are over. ' ' Aint I glad to get out of the wilderness — No more rivers to cross. v : c iiNU jt 1920 ' 1% N the Summer of the Year 1916 there came unto the banks of the River Severn, in the crash civilian garb of the land, sundry and divers specimens of the race called human, 626 hearts which beat vkrith a single hope, — a life upon the sea. C And they entered into an Institution, over the portals of which were inscribed the mystic words " Ex Scientia Tri- ens " — there to imbibe from the sacred fountain called knowledge, in other words to assimilate the modus operandi of " What Do. " C During the first three months of their incarceration, which had as yet not become known by the term imprisonment, they lived a garish existence, and waxed fat on the fruit of the land. To them the fundamentals came as the summer to the spring, — naturally. C But in the fall of the year there fell a great blast called " the return of the upper classes " upon their fair harvest, and instead of reaping whereof they had sowed in such unstinting quantity, they garnered unto themselves the first principles of the codified statutes of the service, then published under the title of Doyle ' s Laws. C For full eight months the fountain of knowledge brought forth none of the sus- tenance called mUk and honey; its flavor was of a decidedly different hue. True, there was a change at the end of the fifth month, when there came upon the land a celebration designated " Seventeen ' s Graduation " but the rise of Twenty was on the path characterized as downward, — and continued its descent. •1 7 THE PASSING OF 1920 ♦! C When the date inscribed on the calendar as November 25 rolled around there came a great change over the landscape. For two whole days and an overnight liberty in the city popularly known as Greater New York the ancient order called R. H. I. P. was cast to the four winds. True, the team suffered defeat, but that night the moon and all its satellites waxed full in commemoration of the battle spirit of the game, and in pledging the victory, " next year. " C One month later the forsaken scattered to the four winds of Heaven to partake of the joys of the ephemeral Christmas Leave. For three whole days the joyous delirium maintained, then once again the bird of Rhino perched over the entrance to Bancroft Hall s«» B d But eventually there comes an end to all things, and so came an end to the probation of Twenty. The summer waxed, and " Taint no mo ' Plebes. " The summer waned, and from, the ships of the Atlantic Fleet streamed homeward the sea-going clan, to mingle for a too brief month with the gayeties and pleasures of the life beyond the pale. C But again there came a change. As A .D- J- " (? S 428 THE PASSING OF 1920 September drew to a close they hied them again toward the home of the pets. And now the members of the new third class burst upon the scene in all their fine raiment with all their queens and forties in tow. And there was merry-making at the hops and the tea-parties, as fall passed into winter, and winter into spring. During much of this time there remained, suspended from the yard by the same hair which once sustained the sword of Damocles, the container familiarly known as " Ye Olde Navee Bucket. " C But by the fortunes of war was its radius of gyration preserved in equilibrium, and while that which fell therefrom was sufficiently copious in quantity, it omitted some of the characteristics of the deluge. C Once more the scene changes, and now the members of the band are to be seen once more upon the wave, some in that evilly discredited organization en- titled the " Armored Cruiser Squadron, " while still others languished aboard the vessels belonging to the Ancient Order of Crabs in various havens of refuge but not rest. During this three month period the clan drank most deeply from the A . " C . ' J = . 1 S 429 I THE PASSING OF 1920 fountain, which e ' en tho it cannot change its spots, had taken unto itself the name of experience, laying aside the higher pretensions of knowledge. But this voyage of Twenty also came to its conclusion; the last Midshipman ' s cruise was navigated into its home port; and with the chapel dome once more astern the convoy scattered and set saU for the home yards. And each craft carried a heavy list to port, and many a blouse gave silent witness to the miniature that nestled in the pocket nearest the heart. The time of the annual pilgrimage back to the Mecca came only too soon, — gone were the miniatures, but in their place was an ache that nothing, nothing im- mediately attainable, — could fill. C And so Twenty descended into its final year — descended into the vale from which only the sat return, and from which ascent to the heighths via the forestry yields but a fleeting glimpse of the Great Outside, and as fleeting a departure from the Great Inside 5 5 C But there came a time, as the silver green of spring once more gave way to the deeper hue of siunmer, when returning from the torment known as the last exam, the class took up the oft far flung pean of victory, " No More Rivers. " And from these sacred rites passed the class of Twenty into the Promised Land of a fair June Week, to mingle with the fairest of the fair, and to wait untn The Day, so long in arriving, so soon passed by, when each took up the long trail to the platform, the rainb ow trail at the end of which waited the reward of three years work and devotion. C And the next day the service scattered them far and wide, but not into oblivion, — for in the years that followed great was the achievement written on the fair record of Twenty s .

" And the entire gang had it, at the beginning of the season, in spite of the quarantine, and at the last of the year in spite of the lost game, and by the way, this game, — we are not offering apologies, but To this day, it is a mystery to us — how a game can be won, and then lost — as this was. And after all, that Great Lakes game was one which, while beneath the status of an Army game, put fight into the Regiment and caused the old place to be imbued with quite the old time feeling. We were not able to post a notice on the score-board reading " No financial depression, " but we could have posted one the reverse of this and also reading " Much mental depression. " The Army game in 1916 was a thriller to be sure, even though we had our usual jinx with us and came out with the little end of the score. Next year should see a continuance of foot- ball relationship between Annapolis and West Point and then Kaydets — Look out! Waiux Camp s lUiimcntan f Pop Perry, the AU-American guard, and AVook Roberts, the half with the same prefix. These titles, given by America ' s great foot- ball critic, Walter Camp, should be nuf-sed, but to let a chance pass to say a good word for 4311 ■ fli lffp Hi HBS HBHB nm them, the good word of the Regiment, would be hke turning down leave. Pop ' s football career has been rather stormy. He was hurt in nearly every game in which he played his first two years. He spent most of his time in the hospital but came back in his first class year bigger framed, better skilled, and with more punch than ever. All through his football career, his educated toe has helped Navy nearly as much as his worthy efforts in stopping holes in the line, and to Pop ' s toe we owe a great deal. Here ' s to you. Pop! May you never see the back of your neck — you deserve the name All-American. Little Wook, the boy wonder from Peoria. He joined us from Colgate, where he gained much valuable experi- ence with the pig-skin. Jonas helped him Plebe year and Dobie developed him in two years into one of the best broken field runners in the country and a safe man to have catching punts. No one could ever place this little runt as an All-American, but he has the stuff and he delivered it. Aside from these two x ll-Americans, Butler and Scafte were on the second All-American, and Ewen and Ingram were honorably mentioned. Last year Bill was given a place on the second All-American. The Pointers should thank their lucky stars that we were at war, because if these men had been turned loose on them, the Navy would have had another flag-rush and a new football for the mess hall, two things that the Naval Academy has not seen for several ij ' , J i m fij - ' , i j ■ • null wm K l l lB ffiWiC " " ' ' ' ■■■ sa-aii- •4 43U years. The First Classmen on the team, Ingram, Roberts, Butler, Whelchel, Scaffe, Perry, Arthur, Skinner, Coldwell, and Combs, of the big Squad, and Cartwright, Fitz, MacLaren, Wellings and Cope, of the Hustlers will not have another chance to add a star to their " N ' s, " but they will be scjueezing and hoping with the rest of us when November and the big day arrive in 1919. As usual, the season, or rather the practice season, started for the Plebes about the middle of August, there being about two hundred who reported for practice. Out of this number Dobie picked such men as x lford, Orr, King, SniveJy, Severn, Larson, Newby, Morgan, Rawlings, and Murray to hold down the Plebe end of the big squad; and well they did it, too. The upper classes of the squad returned from leave five days early, beginning hard work on September 16th. % The squad was going well. Bill was bigger than ever. Hobby was squirming in and out over the entii ' e field, Whelchel was doing some great work in the open; while Butler, the old reliable, was putting every bit of his hundred and eighty pounds into the job. These were the backs, to say nothing of the hard working line, most of which was veteran, too. § But wait — About this time came the flu, about as popular with the regiment as a fire drill on Wednesday. This " cocked the dice " I and just about settled our hash for the remainder of the season. Whelchel went across the creek. Bill was sick, Tommy Scaffe was out, Eddie Graves hurt an ankle, which put him out for the year, and Ewen was in bed. The only two veterans who stuck it out were Butler and Roberts, who would not be sick. Denfeld played several weeks with a bad case of the flu. Then, too, we could not arrange a schedule, our former one having been shot to pieces s 6 That four week period was about the black- est page of Navj ' athletic history. However on October 24th, the ban was lifted and Navy started in with a flu crippled team, minus some of the big ones. The way in which the team got under way though was an inspiration to the Regiment and an addition to the best of Navy traditions. From the first " x ll hands up anchor " to the final whistle, the gang were on their toes and the final outcome of the game was Navy 47, Newport Training Station, 7. Pop came in for a 53 yard average to his punts; Butler formed the nucleus for a badly seasoned and raw backfield; while Pop Perry and Tommy Scaffe held the center of the defense s Bill came back about this time and even though somewhat weak from the flu, started in with his old time form and broke through St. Helena ' s line for a 25 yard run. Roberts was easily the star performer, dodging in and out, always just out of reach. He alone was 439 mimBsmim mhiftn tiftll Ray! Ray! Gatigway! Ray! Ray! Gangway! U, S. N. A. Rah! Rah!

In tiiis game the team showed somewhat more unity and the effects of having Bill back; there was more get up and go to the bunch. The com- parative ease with which Navy circled their ends proved conclusively what a little of Dobie ' s coaching could do. The score was 66 to nothing, with Navy on the long end of the stick. After this game came one with Norfolk Operating Base, a team composed of men who had, prior to their entrance into the Navy, played on college teams in various parts of the country. The game was merely a trial of Navy ' s offense and Norfolk ' s defence. Norfolk tried only three times to advance the ball by rushes, none of which succeeded. The best they could do was punt and Pop beat them on every one. Benoist, Butler, Ingram, Rawlings, and Severn, all did good work in carrying the ball. The line held like a brick wall. The fast quarter-back of Norfolk did put a little pep into the game, when, in the last ciuarter, he ran the entire length of the field from a kick off ' . The team still showed improvement and the final score was 37 to 6. The next game was with Ursinus, the plucky little college from Pennsylvania. It was a slaughter, giving us the game by a score of l- T to 0.

It was an easy game, and proved good practice for the Great Lakes game the " ZSrd. All veterans were in the game except Roberts, who was recovering from a bad knee. f The big game of the year rolled around with a beautiful day and the team and Regiment in excellent spirits. We put on a few extras and marched on the field, — something in the order of an Army game. The Great Lakes contingent arrived soon after, headed by its band, one of the best we have ever had the good fortune to hear. The game was called at " Z.SO p. m. and Navy went on the field with the strongest team we had had together this year. Great Lakes had a husky crowd and even before the game we had the }M-omise of a good scrap — and good it was. The first quarter was neck and neck. Navy pulled a few fumbles which about evened the contest and left the score to 0. The second cjuarter was a repetition of the first, showing good team work on each side and excellent football. The second half was the one. Navy took the ball on the Great Lakes forty yard line and by a Ijeautiful example of runs, plunges, and forward passes took the ball over the line for the first touchdown, and a well earned one. Butler missed the kick out, and the score was 6 to 0. 443 n I •« t i i i v In the last quarter the ball shifted back and forth until with seven minutes to play, Pop block- ed a punt and Ewenfell on the ball on Great Lakes " thirteen yard line. We lost the ball on downs and Great Lakes punted to their twenty-five yard line. A pass took us to their eight yard line. By a series of line plunges the ball was placed on the one yard line — only one yard needed to make another touch- down and cinch the game. The signal was called and the ball went over the line. Out of the mass of players, the ball suddenly shot several feet into the air, behind the line; Eielson of Great Lakes got the ball and behind a quick and well formed inter- ference tied the score. Goal was kicked and the game was lost to us, 7 to (i. There is no use cry- ing over lost pots, but to this day the Regiment has not recovered from the shock of seeing the biggest game of the year won and then lost by a team which was the peer of all Navy football teams, — Bill Lagram ' s team. It was a rather gloomy beginning of the season and a still gloomier ending, but no such loss can be attributed to the team — the team which was recog- nized to be one of the best, if not the best in the country. " A four N and three Teams — now make it good, fellows. " 444 1 NAVY ' S CRACK GREl BEATS PENN EASILY Middies Show Way to Quaker ' Varsity Oarsmen in Battle of Sweeps on Severn.

We have now the undisputed right to the " top of the river " as the English say of their winning crews, and the Class of iHO is the one which brought to the Naval Academy that long wished for achievement — a Henley victory. The crew season of 1918 started with but two varsity men, Murray and Bryant of 19, and prospects for a successful year did not look very bright, but ' ' Dick " took a hold with his usual snap and developed the best Navy crew since the days of " Babe " Brown. To Dick must be conceded the credit of our success, for few coaches could have looked forward and seen the p()ssi})ilities in raw material which he saw, for after the first week of indoor practice he remarked one day of Ingram. " If Ingram can get under a hundred and eighty-five, I will make a stroke of him. " Three days before the first Pennsylvania race the jjrophecy was fulfilled, and to Ingram, green and inex- perienced, without the " form " and knowledge which a year ' s rowing on the Plebe squad gives a man, was entrusted the nerve racking job of pitting strength, judgment and skill against the cleverest crew in the East. The race was a disappointment to Navy, but to those who know all the particulars, was not unexpected. The weather was rainj ' and half a gale was blowing, but Dick in a very generous and sportsmanlike manner gave the choice of course to the visitors, which is not much of an ad antage on an ordinary day, but on a rough day gives an almost unbeatable one to the lucky man , " - s The Pennsylvania crew, rowing with the polish and science characteristic of Pennsylvania crews, rowed down the lee side under the shelter of the bluff, while the Navy with more powerful men in her crew was straining and tugging away at her oars in the heavy waves in midstream, gamely, but vainly, trying to catch her more polished rival. il 44(i t ' nRaenRK " SEXIOR VARSITY ■ :• II ..ircr,, ,,■ ih, i JUNIOR VARSITY 447 11 One incident occnred wliich brought to the Navy a greater distinction and honor than even victory could have done. One minute and fifteen seconds after the start Pennsylvania ' s bow man snapped his oar putting the race on ice for Navy, had we desired to take it that way. But we stopped and after a new start were beaten, and although there were some who criticised the action, still, it is doubtful, if there is one man in the Naval Academy who does not feel that it was the sportsmanlike and gentle- manly thing to do and does not feel that any other action would have been unworthy of the spirit of the Naval Academy and of the Ser ' ice. After the race many expected a big shake-up in the Varsity, but their dope was wrong, for not a man was changed from then until the end of the year. fl After four weeks of hard training and coaching our crew was ready to give battle to the former victors, Pennsylvania. Columbia also sent down a crew whose strength was an unknown cjuantity, for although they were beaten in the Child ' s Cup race anything is likely to happen in the rowing game. Penn.sylvania arrived confident of victory and justly, proud of her wonderful reputation as the best and smoothest crew in the East. Outside of the men in the scjuad who realized under what a handicap the first race had been rowed, there were few who dared hope for a victory over the crew which had shown its rudder to every college in the East. The race started after jockeying at the starting line for several minutes, during which time Penn- sybania had nosed her way out a liit in front. Columbia called for a new start and the protest was sustained by the referee. A new start was made, and this time the four crews got off together, hitting the water at about forty or forty-two strokes per minute. 1 Xavy slowed down to a thirty-six after a minute and swung into the lead before the Henley mark was reached. In vain did the Penn coxswain yell " Raw meat " and " Let ' s get ' em, " for the Navy Crew had the same power as before but had added to it the necessary form and science, the lack of which had proved so fatal four weeks before. f At the " little red house " Big Bill put it uj) to thirty- eight, which was high for such a big crew, but they stood the strain without a tremor and swung magnificently across the line a length and a half to the good with 448 M revenge for their defeat and with nine new N cross oars, the second crew to win them in the history of the Naval Academy. Pennsylvania finished second and our second crew, which, by the courtesy of the others, had been allowed to enter the race, was third with Columbia a bad fourth. The only thing which marred the season was the failure of the second crew to receive any kind of an award for their ser ' ices. They rowed in a varsity race and beat the crew of another college and were not even awarded numerals for three months hard work, for it was only because of the second that the varsity got cross oars. Night after night Van Buren ' s bull dogs made the varsity do its best to win. In looking back over a season crowned with success the highest praise should be given to Brown, Post, Sykes, Arthur, Graff, Talbott, Van Buren and Maguire, whose unflinching effort and fight made possible the success of the varsity. ' 20 ' g Icbc Crcto. The war which came upon us in the middle of the crew season of 1919 prevented all our crews from showing anything, in competition. It was the irony of fate that the Navy Department should call off all athletics, just three days before the races for the varsity, Junior varsity and Plebe crews with Pennsylvania. There is no telling what ' 20 ' s plebe crew would have been able to do, but if it did nothing else, Plebe year taught the fundamentals of rowing to those who one year later proved that they had had proper training and instruction in the small points of rowing early in their rowing career. Our Plebe crew was stroked by Van Buren who knew how it was done before he came here and was just the right man in the right jjlace, for Van is the grittiest and most polished oarsman Navy will have for some years, and his lack of a few pounds of beef is hard luck for Navy, for anyone who is connected with the crew squad knows what ' an would be with twenty poimds more to his credit. By a freak of fortune the Plebes beat the varsity the last night of practice, but that feat is hardly to be taken as a measure of the worth of the Plebe crew although the Plebes were able to beat the second varsity handily and come within a length of the varsity over the two mile course. 449 Kan wag mmmrr Baseball N Men.

T seemed that the jinx was on our path again last year, as the first two games of the season went against Navy. But a change of weather brought a change in luck, and the remainder of the season was one of the biggest successes seen here for many years. Due to Billy Lu.sh ' s hard work, and the co-operation of the team, we achieved big league form and hung defeat on them from the bushes to the majors. The su|)i)ort of both the outfield and the infield was very soothing indeed to the battery, and it was almost inii)ossil)le for an embryo Tyrus to secure even a safety. It is rather the consistency of the team, than the individual Ijrilliance of any one star, that assures our success in the present season, and with the nucleus of last year ' s team still with us, there is no doubt but that we ' 11 take them all into camp, from the first game up to and including the Army, and hear once more the ictorious strokes of the old Jap Bell.

The ])reniature graduation of several good dash men and fiuarter-milers, together with the deeply regretted loss of Lt. Com. McNair ' s coaching abilities served to make the prospect nil. It was with delight that we then heard the news of the arrival of Mr. Mulligan, the former Olympic star. § Training began the first week in April and from the start an unexpected wealth of material was seen on the track at every i ractice. The dashes were covered well by the Youngsters and Plebes. With Hibbs, Burdick and Mayberry in the sjjeed events, Davis, Harrington and Fleming in the distance events, the old reliable relay c}uartette, and that strong arm aggregation in the field sports, a well balanced all-round combination was developed against which any team in the East might liave had well-grounded fears. There was developed a fight, dash and pep which would have gladdened the heart of old " Scotty " MacMasters. Lehigh was the first victim of the season. Navy cap- tured all the events over a comparatively weak oppos- ing combination. A brilliant sliowing with the discus by Allen and Heintz, and Markell ' s and Perry ' s heav- ing of the shot established these events as real point gainers s» s On May 11 the best team seen on a Navy track in years was sent to us from Pitt. The injiu ' ies received by Hibbs in practice practically sjiotted the visitors two events — the hundred and the two-twenty. Pitt ' s team was built around their one best bet — Shea, who captured the 100, ' -2 ' 20, 4-10, and also ran in the relay. I 454 Davis of Navy walked away from Pitt in the half mile, and his time of i min. 1 4-5 sec. needs no further comment. Heintz first smashed the Academy discus records and Allen surpassed this feat with a heave of 1 ' 27 ft. 7 in. Pitt gained its relay victory thru Shea ' s wonder- ful exhibition in which he again did the cjuarter in something imder 50 sec. and finished on the long end of a 693-461 score. Penn was our final opponent of the season. This was the one meet fa •o ed by excellent weather and a fast track. Hibb ' s injury handicajjped us again by allowing Penn to take the 100 in the poor time of 10 1 sec. We also lost the mile and broad junii). Pearson, Hart, Bonney and Moncewiez brought home the bacon by their sterling wo rk in the relay. Under Hibb ' s captaincy and with Mr. Mulligan again as a coach, last year ' s team practically intact, jjrom- ising new material in the lower classes, and a high calibered schedule on the card, the 1919 season should be most successful and one which will maintain the old Navy jirecedence in this branch of sport. Schedule 1919 Johns Hopkins Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Cornell 45.5 I -Z-Z-Z-ING, — the visitor ducks as a one- j£ pounder shell cleaves the air just abaft his left ear. Snipers around? No, that " s only coach Finlayson " tossing " ' the ball down the field, for this is an evening ' s practice with the Lacrosse squad. There ' s a quick shout " Comin " in, Hooley, " and Hiram Shaw ' s battle cry precedes himd own the field. Tlien a wicked zip as the white projectile sails to Hooley ' s stick. A second of twisting and ducking, his left arm straight out to ward otf the others, and Gearing is free, which means that the ball is calmly reposing in the back of the net. , A moment of quiet, as the groups separate, a shrill whistle, and the rush of quick feet is drowned in the clash of sticks and shins. Suddenly there emerges a lone runner, lank and speedy, — that ' s Paul Voinot starting for the front, stick swaying oddly as he l)alances the liall in its pocket. With a howl the wolves are after him, some spreading out U) receive the pass, others to block the throw. The ball shoots away to Watters, who dodges under Tommy Scaffe ' s descending battle axe only to find big Horace Burroughs bearing tlown with a wildly l)randished club. A quick pass to Kautt ' man, who whirls the ball just out of Maichle ' s reach, only to have it dashed to the ground from behind; and Slim Deringer gallops down the field, Pendle- ton in chase. The teams close in with a rush, and suddenly it ' s over, for Finebaum ' s deft stab has failed to block the goal. The whistle sounds and practice is over, the casuality list none the larger. " Night, George. Night, boys, " and the squad trots off toward Bancroft. Lacrosse, in spite of its evident spirit and fight, is not to be equalled in its necessity for team work, for onlj ' after long months of George Finlayson ' s careful coaching does a man handle his strange weapon with skill. Navy ' s team, moreover, is of a caliber that can ' t be equalled, as Hopkins, Swathmore, and Carlisle Indians will tell you. Last year we gathered in twenty-five points to our opponents ' one. This year — no rash promises, but at least the other fellows will know they ' ve been playing a man ' s game when the whistle blows. arijc Ceam, Forwards Lowes, Capt..

Navy teams in the past have turned in the same card at the final whistle, but never under similar conditions. With not a single " N " man available, with Captain Lowes (figured as a mainstay at forward) out with a bad knee, and with several promising players laid up with the flu. Coach Billy Lush started the season. Before very many games had been played, however, it was evident that the green combination Billy had kneaded together was a speedy one and could hold its own against the best in the land and each game showed improvement. After several sorts of preliminary games, C. C. N. Y. — basket-ballwise and with a victory over us last year— went down to the tune of " 28-14. The winning flash of the all-star Cresents was snuffed decisively. Lehigh, Swathmore, Georgetown, U. of V., St. Josephs, N. Y. U. and V. M. I. followed in quick order, all returned home with a sample of clean, scientific basket- ball as she should be played. And then the Pointers— five " A " basketball men playing in the uniform of Camp Humphreys — visited us with a scjuad of rooters, West Point graduates. And the fur did fly! At the sound of the Pointers ' " Benny Haven, Oh! " we pinned back our ears and, hair on end, flung back " Anchors Aweigh. " The spirit ran high! The first six minutes of play was scoreless — a hard, l)ei)])ery contest. Then the Pointers drew first blood; l)ut it was shortly balanced by the Navy. From then on, the team struck its stride. The Pointers fought like devil dogs, but they were outclas.sed. The finish found the count 31-0. ■158 Some team! " Crip " Lowes with a bad knee could not start regularly, but fitted in nicely in the final games when Farwell — the Plebe phenom — went by the boards with the flu. Lewis worked smoothly — his shooting was nothing short of wonderful. And Deringer! It was a treat to watch his long arm.s shoot from out of a scrimmage and heave the ball scjuarely through the rim. Bolton and Couble were steady and dependable, Watters was a hard plugging guard with a keen eye for the basket. And finally Red Thomas, although not brilliant, was the well known Johnny when you needed him.

The suiierior work of Hales on the rings, Ten Eyck on the horizontals and the Youngster and Plebe stars have defeated all rivals.

" At the outset, the lack of B. T. U ' s in the pool was a severe hardshi]), and liefore the season was well advanced the Eskimos had nothing on the boys when it came to dodging icebergs. Even so it didn ' t take Captain Goggins and Coach Ortland long to round the .squad into shape and to form a well-balanced team from the material de eloped by the Ijiggest turnout in years. There were a good many holes left by graduation, and the ship claimed another first team man, but a glance at the season ' s scores shows how well the ' acancies were filled. Navy ' s oijponents were picked from the best teams in the East ; every race was a fight to the fini.sh, yet the Blue and Gold emerged with the long end of the score in a majority of meets. Johns Hopkins was the first victim, score 41 to 9. Tlie following week we suffered our first defeat at the hands of Pittsburgh, 37- " 25. Lehigh proved ea.sy, but Boston Tech left on the top-side of a 33- ' 20 count. The final day was Navy ' s, Columbia falling to the tune of 44-14. The fine work of Captain Goggins, ' ' 20, Gallagher ' ii, Lambdin ' 21, and Emory ' " 21 in the dashes, and Koch ' ' il and Bowman ' " 22 in the breast and back stroke events leaves little to be desired, and entitles them to the sNt thev wear. 463 FENCING EN seasons without a defeat is Navy ' s record, and jjrospects for eleven straight look fine now. The war limited last year ' s season to three meets, namely, with Penn, Columliia, and Yale, hut Navy looked as big as ever in those three. Being unable to leave the Academic limits the team unfortunately could not participate in the Intercollegiates in New York. As a result, the Little Iron Man, which had come to be looked upon as a permanent fixture in Memorial Hall, was taken away by Columbia. Navy boasted two intercollegiate champions last year. Captain Jeter with the foils and Kiernan with sabres. DeKay, Calnan and Donnelly, all hard workers, were the other members of the foil team, while sabres were represented by AYebb, Cleave and Beck. This year ' s squad is the largest and strongest ever put out, being led by three fNt men, Calnan, Donnelly, and Beck, and our schedule is excellent, including Yale, Penn, Columbia, Wa.shington Army and Navy Officers, and ending with the Inter-collegiate in New York on April i-5. To the coaches, the credit for our success is largely due. Mr. Heintz, our head coach, has been with us for thirty years and is without ])eer in this country. Mr. Darrieulat is heart and soul in the game, as his record shows, and Mr. Pupano, our new coach looks good. Plac-ing our confi- dence in these coachers and in the squad under them, we can have no doubt that the Little Iron Man wall be brought back to where he belongs. 4(i4 I TENNIS ' ' T. ' NEVER knew a tennis player who conld n ' t dance like a dream, " il said a fair one once — so you see why there is always such a rush for the available courts. While tennis and " tea-fights " are usually linked together, the former, as an exercise, can be surpassed by but few, — and also it is one of the few games that a Naval Officer can always play. f You can tell a gymnast by his poise; a jnigilist by his jaw; Init to tell a racket wielder, give him the necessary gear and watch him. Like most of these sports here there is that fascination which conies with hard work and knowing the men on the squad. Q The War and the Reserve Officers " Quarters have interfered with the last two seasons. Howe -er a large squad has been working on the few remaining courts and this year prospects are bright for a very successful season. With Roy Graham as captain. Ten Eyck, Ketcham. McVay, Buse, Hunt and Yeager, the Plebe expert, and some other " dark horses, " Navy ' s sea-going tennis reputation will be upheld.

In the spring of ' 19 some of the men who had played the game on the outside formed the nucleus of what was one year later destined to l ecome one of Navy ' s most popular teams. The season started this year with the game against St. Elizabeth F. C. of Baltimore on March ' 29. The squad proved that its two years of practice had not been vain endeavor and romped home with a to 1 victory. The game was played in a heavy wind which handicapped both teams and prevented the display of all the science for which the game is noted. A great deal of credit is due the entire squad and Captain Taylor for their zeal and patient endeavor in launching another Navy sport. The first team was composed of: Coftman, McShane, Taylor, McVay, Coulter, Hanlon, AVorth, Bueche. Morgan, Butler, and Rowe. 466 liL (T)asiqueraberg " It Pays to Advertise " HERE is a group of about fifty men in the Academy who make the nearest approach to a fraternity that the place will brook. Their efforts begin early each year and come to light in the glare of the footlights, in that dreamy atmosphere that lingers about the black velvet curtain. The Masqueraders work from. " Release " to far into the night, striving always for the evening when the one girl wUl applaud the practiced bit of pantom.irne and smile at each spoken sentiment. From year to year the character of the performance has approached a new criterion, growing more and more pretentious. The glow of the incandescants, the cadmium and the masks, have claimed the attentions of brilliant men and have given them the proper outlet for their cleverness. d Tim. and I saw the Masqueraders five straight times. The first time up, the dress rehearsal was in progress when we arrived at the Auditorium.. The stage gang were holding a council of war, while the heroine and 469 ■ QUI, JE PRRLE FRRhCFllS, rflHCiFIME itfli i the French adventuress were holding out on the cussed narrowness of shoes. Mary was dying for a smoke but would n ' t do it ; it would make his voice husky. No one — I mean — no roan — can appreciate the sacrifices these lads made for the sake of Art. The critics, judges and coaches held places outside the ring ; the curtain and the lights went up on act one. Tim ' s taste in theatres manifested itself very quickly. He put out a perfect smoke barrage and looked for a runway and a waiter, but looked in vain. Mary tried to spoof the English butler for a few moments, but he was hard- shelled. We sat tight and waited for the Countess to get out and give the hero a chance. Rodney appeared, sized up the situation, locked the door and proposed to Mary — papa ' s private secretary, — the show underway only ten brief minutes. Tim thought it was the end of the third act, and decided that he needed something to tide him over the last one. Now, Rodney was a rich man ' s son — an idler — Heaven pity the rich — and father, being conservative and old-fashioned, wanted Rodney to go to work. It was an old idea to Rodney however. About the time that Rodney was being accepted. Father tried the locked door. It was locked — and explanations were in order, for Father had the gout and his safety valves were ready to pop. The result was that son ' » 470 1 L I packed, preparatory to going to work, while the audience watched Father write a check for Mary. C AH the time it appears that Mary had been letting Rodney do the lamb stunt in order to aid (abet) and dad ' s plans, and was working under contract. Tiro, was of the opinion that she had really fallen for Rodney and tried to place a bet. Anyhow, Mary made a new contract with Dad, to keep Rodney on the job — salary and com- mission 5«» 5«. C. With all the new troubles that suddenly sprung into the hero ' s young life comes Peale, the press-agent for the Belle Broadway show, asking Rodney to elope with the leading lady for the sake of advertising. Nobody in the show believes in advertising, so Peale has a fertile field in which to touch only the high places. He does it, convincing Rodney, who takes Peale to his heart, making him his advertising agent. It is a soap manufacturing scheme to buck Father. Incidentally the audience found out why we wear Boston garters, use Mennen ' s talcum powder, and eat hen ' s eggs. It was an education, all in the first act. C It was a long intermission and Tim and I went out as usual to enjoy the profanity of the stage gang, the idle relaxation of the cast, and an incidental Fat. C The second act found Rodney ' s new project, Thir- FOR omT 471 J •» - ?■ .- - teen Soap — unlucky for dirt, — the most expensive soap in the world — the new scheme, high on the rocks. Advertising, the psychology of print, the universal appeal of superstition, all failed. The glowing, rosy prospects of the first act were fizzling out one by one, crook following crook, and Father still stern and relent- less. Even the cleverness of Mary took the wrong course and involved the business further — hopelessly. C The end — the beginning of the end — was one of bitter failure. Youth, brains, advertising, enthusiasm, had come to nothing ; not a single cake of Thirteen Soap had been sold. Suddenly, in the eleventh hour, the world goes road over Thirteen Soap, and out of the tragedy of failure springs the pleasant surprise of a startling suc- cess, — the unsuspected stroke that leaves one with that " they lived happily ever after " feeling. d The true success of the show was, in a broader sense, the feeling of triumph that the Masqueraders give to the Regiment in transporting everyone to that land of make- believe that they have created for the Naval Academy. 47i !| Glee Club Leader: W. B. Broadhurst " 20 ylJtLEE CLUB " is an apt name for the aggregation that sports that J title here, for when the warblers get together and begin to tune up the chances .are it ' s going to be a happy party for everybody present. In spite of the little time for practice and rehearsal, the song- ters have given us some mighty good productions in the past, and this year ' s only added another argument to the case in favor of it. Owing to the number of excellent soloists included, the entertainment ran more to individual numbers than previously, and the chorus numbers were excellent. Great credit is due to the men who have made the Glee Club what it is, and afforded the Regiment and its guests such an evening of entertainment. 473 ■ ..i fe •v " - ' fUjittliolfn eiuli Leader: L. S. Perry ' 20 NDER the leadership of • ' Pop " Perry, the Man- dohn Chib gave us a new and highly enjoyable type of performance. Instead of the ensemble effect adhered to heretofore, individual talent carried away the palms. Among the favorites were the " Plebe Blues, " Interpretive dances, Epyptian scenes, and cabarets. The talent to choose from was unusual and bountiful and though it was almost impossible to select the performers, the choice gave excellent results. 474 ,..f V. i ' W ' ■ © « t; t t f i i § 9 " 3!-J " . ' .-■ jf C iO(r Lpflf ' ?-; F. Taylor, ' W HE Naval Academy chapel services have long been noted for the high quality of the musical part of the service, and the present choir has done much, not onty to uphold this reputation, but to improve it. It took a long time to discover some of the men now carrying the solo parts, but once discovered, they have continued to add 1 -.eauty to the services from Sunday to Sunday. The con- scientious and valuable services rendered by the choir as a whole cannot be overestimated nor too highly appreciated. 475 eil«i|irl ■P ' HE one iVcademic activity that claims the attention of more of us than any wL other is the Sunday morning hour at Chapel. Denominational distinction is unheard of within the Chapel walls, and ecclesiastical pride never fails to give way to the plea that all are welcome, regardless of their individual religious preferences. Chaplain Sidney Key Evans has served faithfully and capably in his high position as spiritual adviser to the Regiment, and has maintained the Chapel services at their high standard this year. Divine service in [Memorial Hall is a new creation in the scheme of worship this year, made necessary by the increase in the Regiment overflowing the Chapel. Four companies are detailed there each Sunday, so that one week in four we digress somewhat from the path of sacred theology and hear a straight-from-the-shoulder man-talk from Assistant Chaplain Schramm. In more ways than one, we are indel)ted to l)oth our Chaplains for their never- failing cheerfulness, willingness to help, and the inspirations they have given us. 476 ie, HI e m m HEN Sunday night conies around with its dinner of cokl fish and what Nebuchadnezzar might term salad, with the work of a whole week to look forward to — there ' s little wonder that a soreness pervades the average midshipman ' s body and soul. However this feeling is usually dispelled after a half hour spent in Mem Hall under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. A talk such as given by Lt. Isaacs or Bishop Talbot goes a long way towards making us forget our troubles and allows us to imagine a future date when we shall have accomplished something worthy of mention. The Y. M. C. A. is one of the strongest links on the one hand between the midshipmen and the Fleet, for it gives them opportunity to listen to what some of the older officers think of the Navy, and on the other between the midshipmen and the outside world, for it offers them reading material in the way of newspapers and current periodicals. There is one more thing that should be mentioned in connection with the Y. M. C. A., and that is the Reef Points, our little book of advice, which gives some useful infor- mation as to athletics and general conduct — also provides space in which the savoirs keep their marks and the fussers their dates. The " Y " has flourished this year under the direction of President Van Buren and his assistants, and the Regiment has been the better for its influence. 477 T. W.

' OW when it comes to the Log — ah, there ' s the question. Who can spread the honey with such an artistic .s-aru; froid. This much was allowed to reach the editorial ear before the official gawboon described the classic ])aral)ola and found " at the end of the Rain bo-o-o-ow " the gonk of that annoyer. Hoosit? AVell, now who boosts that Log to death all the time until the D. O. thinks the consequent haze is a result of a new outbreak of fumar-itis, and dashes out of the office and busts the official sword over the First Batt cat innocently trying to locate a warm berth somewhere near the official nightly domicile? In a breath, who? " Down belo-o-o-ow- " ' rumbles that famous quartet which sounds the keynote of the Log, down among the incarcerated mokes, cobbling engines, limited-service crockery, that ' s where! However, the depth of the institution, figurative and literal, does not by any means signify the ideals nor the ambitions of the Log. The Log has plodded ahead to a place of distinction among college publi- cations. The Regiment and all classes have reason to be proud of its achievements. The Business end of the Log has made possible the clever art display that has characterized every issue and the other departments have shown their sterling work too often to be quoted here. Co-operation by the authorities at all times has helped the general efficiency of the publication and it has been a pleasure to work under these conditions. THE 1920 LOG BOARD W. M. Moses Editor M.

Sproul f N end must there be to all things, and as the long dreamed of golden T t days of the last Sep leave faded into the past and became only mem- ories to taunt and torment, the rhino stragglers drifted in groups into the Hotel Emerson. This rendezvous was destined to be the scene of the last hilarious night before the ball and chain was once again shackled around the ankles of the pets. In a mass we crowded to one of the top decks where the festive mess tables were laden with the delicacie-s that at once celebrated and bemoaned our return for the last long lap to the goal. More than the fact that it was a Class supper, with a good attend- ance, an excellent menu, and a show following, we hesitate to claim any particular merits or distinctive features. It is absurdly unnecessary to say that all hands anchored in Crabtown the following morning with a black cloud of gloom obscuring the radiance of the golden days of the Academic year just beginning. 4SIJ €U German Committee Ch airman : S.

Troops were equipped with Colt made arms in the Mexican War, 1848, during the great struggle from 1861 to 1865, and in the war with Spain, 1898. Through all the years of this Company ' s existence we have been developing arms which have been adopted by the United States Government and which have made many thousands of friends for the Colt Company. Tliis great experience now seems to have been but preparation to enable us to serve the United States Government during the present world war. The Colt Company manufactures the Colt, Browning and Vickers Machine Guns in addition to the Colt Automatic Pistol and Colt Revolver, Caliber .45. To the maximum extent of our capacity we are making these essentially military weapons for the Government, and at their requ.est are daily enlarging our facilities. In doing this, which is our duty to the Government, we are each day having to disappoint many friends who wish to procure some particular model of Colt revolver or automatic pistol for their own use. We are sure, however, that all those who have the best interests of the country at heart prefer that at this time our whole effort be expended in making our part of the equipment for the boys who are going ' over there.
