TM FOREWORD IN constructing this yearbook of the Naval Academy a conscientious effort has been made to suggest the purpose for which the institution exists; the preparation and training of our officers for the Service. For that reason, and also because this book seems a most fitting instrument to con- tain a tribute to the Navy when it was at its zenith at the close of the World War, the New Navy sec- tion has been included and given the place of honor. Herein is recorded and pictured the year 1922-1923 at the Naval Academy, its successes and failures. We have tried throughout to keep in mind the enduring and permanent character of the book, with such measure of success as the pages following will indicate. ' I ict yn.

Living, animate, possessed of a soul, but only by virtue of her officers and men. Without them a lifeless, useless bulk of steel. Power to light and heat a city in her shafts, unthinkable force at her guns muzzles, stronger than wind and stronger than wave — Queen of the Sea. 17 i i i ' iiiiiii ni ii i i i iiiiiiiiii n ii i i i i i ii i iiiiii ii i i i ii ii i i i i n iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiii i m i n iii i i n !lliiii! i !i i iji ; li|: ' i l!!iHlllll!lll!ll m ,,;„iiir m w «f« llillllllfllllllllli rw OJI ' IFT sisters of the hattle- AJ ships, the cruisers. From the days of the Constitution and her mates dozen to the White Fleet, the cruisers of the United States have more than once showed themselves the equal of more pozcerfulfoes. Neglected for some years as a type, the older cruisers still did all-important service during the ivar. Re- stored now in a new class of ves- sels of speed, strength, and beauty, they once more take their apportioned place in the fleet.

The judgment of its commander or the strength of a piece of steel may decide a battle. If to command a ship is to be king in one ' s own domain, then to command a fleet is to be emperor over many kingdoms. The Navy has no prouder sign than the four star flag at the main truck. 25 1 I I TOmi ■■I liillllllll! !

Back and forth, in and out of danger, re- gardless of season or zveather run the con- voys. Half a dozen destro - ers, sometimes a sadly small group of converted yachts, formed the bodyguard to a long line of ships, zvith their cargoes of inestimable value or the thousands of still more precious lives. Unmatched ships ran in close formations -with constantly changing course and in total darkness, a feat supposed impossible. And yet no ship in an Ameri- can convoy on the way to France zvas lost, and to these weary watchers of the sea lanes In large measure is the victorx due. 26 1 ' i » i ii . ii i i iui iiiii n i i ii j i n i Mmi ii M iii nn ' ii r i rnN i n iii niNiin ill l ll llil iuini i n i ii i iiiiiiiiiii II ii; i Miiiiniiiiiu illllinilllillllll i llllNlllllllllllllllllllllllllimill ,li .iniuiiiiinnii iinMiMiiniii W 3 iil fn 4 J± the onlx heavy MERIC.TS ans-zcer to Bin Bertha- Naval Raikvay Battery.

Fast, handy little craft, built in yacht yards all over the coun- try and yet like as peas in a pod. Powered with three hea v engines the subchasers had a fair turn of speed, and what with a twelve pounder and a cargo of depth charges they were formidable patrol craft. Many of them crossed the Atlantic, some towed part way, others entirely under their own power. Although with a rolling ability second only to a destroyer they proved to be useful and valuable vessels. 29 W)i l " ' liii ' i ' ii ' " ii!millliiii iiiiinii iniiMiMiiiiiiiiiMimii i ii i iiiiiii i iiiiiii i iniiiiiiiimiiiiiniiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii uiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiNiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iMiiM iiii i iiiiiii Mmi iiiii i iiii n ii il iiiiii m i nin i i ii i ii i | || j i| ||| | j[ |||| i |||{| WWff|f{jf HWieifW mm m llliilH I!

It is for these things that ive have labored four years; to do these things that we aspire. The Navy has been shoivji when it was at its height, at the close of the World War. Of its achievemefits the nation is justly proud. Whatever post-war criticism may be leveled at the service or its members, the country can never forget that the Road to France was never once closed, that the North Sea Mine Barrage was laid and swept up, that naval guns fired in France, and above all that traditions already glorious were made more so by countless acts of true heroism. During these days of retrenchment and disarmament those of us who knew it during the war see a Navy sadly depleted in officers and men, see idle rusting ships, mighty vessels yet unborn being broken up, never to attain to their rightful domin- ion over the sea, and an apparent relaxation through the whole Service that brings an ache to the heart. But all this is outtcard only, and though the twilight has come, still the Spirit of the Navy is unshaken and unchanged, and when the hour of need arises the Navy zvill be ready to add another chapter to its proud history. mini I ' M, ■ ' i ' " i ini i m il n i l ii i i iii m iiiii mm ii m i m iii i i m iiiii m m ii h i m i ii ii i i i in ii ii i i i ni ii ii i m i u iii i iiiii i ii iiiiiii iiiiiiiiii i iiiiiiimilllMlllirilM I lllllimilMlllliM lll i i i i i i ii i ii iMii iii m i ii i i iii i i |q A 7 ;: ic XTi-Ra rnN ' pi ' y ;f-rJg! yT = yr, if- REGIMENTAL COMMANDER AND STAFF Midshipman Commander Lt.

Among them may be mentioned lack of time, staff members going unsat, engraver ' s delay, missing pictures, lost shipments, and others too numerous to record. The biography section following represents the hardest job of all, because every man in the class had, or was supposed, to write his room-mate ' s pedigree. A very few refused absolutely, but the majority of the class produced a biography eventually, after the editor and his staff were nearly insane, and had acquired vocabularies unrivalled in vituperative power. No attempt has been made to reduce the individual biographies to a set form or style. Only obvious (and otherwise) grammatical errors were corrected, and ambiguous sentences rescued. One con- tinuous and sincere effort was made, however, to prevent the writing and publishing of " greasy " writeups. By " greasy " we mean a slight variation from the accepted Naval Academy meaning of the term. " Greasiness " in a biography consists in overpraising a man, lauding his virtues, and beseeching all readers to glance at " the frank, manly countenance pictured above " — and marvel thereat. A biography of this description suggests that the man ' s personality is so negative that only such slush can be written about him. On the other hand, a biography which makes fun of a man, reveals his shortcomings, and satirizes his mistakes, is a pretty sure indication that he is beloved of his classmates. The primary purpose of the biographies is, of course, the amuse- ment, entertainment, and representation of the class itself. If, how- ever, they may prove of some interest to the casual reader, we shall feel more than repaid for the thousands of hours spent in procuring them and preparing them for the printer.

Diligent perusal of the Literary Digest has enabled him to knock Edison ' s questions for a row. It ' s too bad that he lacks common sense. He can ' t be called a Red Mike, rather " a one- woman man " , and he is deeply disgusted by his roommates philanderings, particularly Fanny.

In this capacity his ever flowing line proves to be a great asset and we wonder at times if he really means everything he says. Jack is most proficient in the art of borrowing. He has cultivated that art for his own benefit, and his roommates have had plenty of experience in supplying his needs.

Just ask him to tell you of his adventures; of the night of the Army-Navy game plebe year, — since then he says that at least when it comes to dancing women are not the weaker sex; and of liberties ashore in Norway and Portugal. It is indeed a pleasure to hear him tell of those experi- ences. His line is his strongest point, and ' tis rumored that even one of the Dago Profs was heard to mention the famous Ward line. Since he gets letters from about half a dozen schools for the fair sex we really can ' t say who she is. Nevertheless he has our best wishes.

Believe me, I took advantage of the fact, but I was heartbroken after seeing hirn with his O. A. O. because I did not have a chance. " He is known to the fair sex throughout the length and breadth of North Carolina as being the walking image of Wally. Therefore he does not often have to use his line, but when he does, they succumb with- out a struggle. Besides being a tea hound George is a star man as he will inform you if you don ' t know it. Yet despite all his attractions there is still one whom he can ' t obtain — " Ah, but a man ' s reach should exceed his grasp or what ' s a Heaven for. " Keep reaching, Schnitzie, we ' re for you.

John Richard Perry Waco, Texas " Red " " J awn " RED draws no lines, infants and widows are all - the same to him. As regularly as a new " ac " term starts Red falls in love. Some have wondered at his rapid achievements in this line. But once you see him in one of his death defying twirls in a corner of Dalgren Hall you can sympathize with a girl for getting dizzy enough to fall for him. Red missed one month for a cruise on the U. S. S. Reina Mercedes, necessitated by the prompt way in which he qualified for the P. A. degree as soon as that new order was inaugurated. Red is savvy. He intimates as much to you and assures the Profs of it on every available occasion. Unfortunately demos have given the constellations that should decorate his dress blou a negative altitude so we are like a navigator on a dark night, we know where the stars ought to be but we can ' t see them.

It is one of his many standard stories which range all the way from his experiences as a soldier on the Mexican Border, to — " Now when I was selling soap for Fairbanks Company about ten years ago, etc. " Oil is a morbid Mormon from Salt Lake City, having a wife for every state in the Union and two extra for Norway. He left a long string of broken hearts in the Land of the Midnight Sun and although, as he will tell you, " Eet ees very deefeecoolt to un ' erstand " , he seemed to get along with the Norskes fairly well. But you should see him at a Hop. He is a regular writhing reptile whether he drags sat or otherwise, (which is invariably the case when he drags blind.) Owing to a seance with Lady Fatima, he was able to get his P. A. degree within the first two months of his Second Class year. Sub Squad (4, 3): Black N.

" Just glance at the serene countenance depicted above and you can trace the lineaments of a devotee to the works of Bullard, Bowditch etc., and a rabid hater of the fair sex. In all the time Nippy has been here, he has never so much as spooned on a girl. Perhaps when he does see one he likes he will surprise us all.

Never in all his Academic career has he shown signs of a serious thought unless It IS when speaking of women — and then he isn ' t responsible. Hailing from Utah he naturally is reported to have at least six wives, but where he got them no one knows, nor will he enlighten anyone on the subject. During his stay with us Shirley has proved himself to be a veritable Napoleon, hence his third name. His many original commands such as " column come around this way " have earned him an indelible place in the memories of all the members of the old first company, and it seems his big ambition is to write a drill book all his own.

Ira gained fame in short order by reason of his shooting — both guns and lines, and it is impossible to say with which he excels. As an exponent of the English Language, he ' s a world-beater, but we strongly advise that all dealings with him be limited to the use of his native tongue. Kimes says he has no foreign traits anyway, and, therefore, there ' s no reason why he should be a " Dago " savoir.

After two hard years of submarine wrestling he emerged from the pool with his water-polo numerals. His musical accomplishments never rose higher than the harmonica, which he finally mastered to the intense agony of the entire back corridor. He plays well though, and puts his whole soul into his pieces — both of them. With a heart as big as a tombstone, there is nothing he wouldn ' t do for his companions in misery. His deeds as a good Samaritan range all the way from rescuing poor homeless New York chorus girls to lending his toothbrush to a homesick Plebe. His ability to pull through academically is uncanny and he succeeded in standing off the Math Depart- ment for two and a half years and also the Nav outfit which succeeded it.

Ever since Plebe year our own Steele B has been the " notorious orator " from Illinois. By way of his masterful conception of the English tongue, he has won worlds of friends in both sexes. Until the middle of Youngster year, he curtailed his love of the fair sex; then he started out with a bang until now no hop is complete unless our Smitty is acting as a tug for some stately or other kind of craft. Whether it ' s Smitty ' s line or his cherubic smile we don ' t know, but it ' s a sorry specimen with whom he can ' t make a hit.

Having spent but a couple of months there, he proved himself a fast worker, for he seemed to have met all the popular feminine idols of the state, so notorious for such, and with these as an aid, he soon conquered a host of Kentuckian spoons. Then turning his head to a new field of conquest, he reverted to his native birthright of D. C, which proved equally successful. Although the hospital claimed him as an un- fortunate victim for nearly three months of Second Class year, he defeated Fate and the All-academics with his usual indomitable spirit, and did it all without dropping any of his numerous correspon- dents. We will make no attempts to expatiate upon his personal charms, as this would be an encroachment upon the inevitable rights of his ardent admirers of the fairer sex.

Olla is a snake of parts, and he never misses any of the Terpsichorean performances over in the Armory. Dragging blind is his specialty. He never refuses the numerous offers.

Yet his lingo is not his worst handicap, for Duke was born under a lop-sided star. He began his naval career in 1918, and was standing deck watches on the Reina m less than a week. His fortune was little better when he went into battle against the Academic ' s flying squadron, but he was merely put out of action temporarily and has dodged the straddles ever since. Duke was pure and simple when first he was sworn in. The spell of Bacchus and the lure of Nicotine were an abhorrance.

And Son was lured away from his native metropolis at the tender age of sixteen, received a real " bringing up " Plebe year, and has developed into a sophisticated, carefree, regular guy. Ordinarily the Bear is quiet and unassuming in his ways, but when he breaks loose he can ' t be held down. Though never heard from in the athletic field he has tried practically every sport known to the Academy, and has a beginner ' s knowledge of them all. The Academics have never been a source of trouble to him, so his wooden room- mates regard him as the savoir of the room. In the art of snaking, Judd is well accomplished, although he takes femmes as a matter of course and has never been known to fall for their charms. His only expressed ambitions are to master the scandal walk, play his banjo, and to star behind the foot- lights. But from watching the Bear fix alarm clocks we are predicting a big future for him in engineering. " Hey Sternall, gimme two-bits so I can drag tonight! " Class Track (2).

Although more than usually quiet, he is not in the least diffident; but rather he gives the impression of being so by preference. The same retiring spirit influences everything he does. He has never been out for any team, although he works out regularly the year round. He dearly loves a rough-house. Pork owns a guitar, and at rare intervals bursts forth into music and song that resembles a Chinese Opera. He was widowed by the Academics in the middle of Youngster year, but acquired a new wife and subsequently two more. These few really know him, and then only after a couple months of close contact.

Wolly missed his Second Class cruise in order to remain here at the Academy to take part in the National Rifle Team Matches. He won distinction as a member of the Academy team which gained such signal honor at the matches that summer. During his career here he has found Academic Walk a bed of roses.

As a reptile his ability is beyond comprehension because all are, colloquially speaking, " knocked chilly " . Now really Jack has some fine traits.

Buck is one of our most versatile classmates, being equally at home playing the role of snake at a hop or making Al Jolson blush for shame with his warbling at one of our shows. And my, how he can warble! Not only is he a social lion, but also a real he-man who has worked hard and earnestly to make our crews, football and wrestling teams what they are.

On top of all this, he ' s savvy and shatters the axiomatic saying that " you can ' t get something from nothing " by getting the maximum results from minimum work. Saturday nights of Plebe year often found Rodgers on " Bancroft Roof Garden " watching the contests in the Gym, and since then he has developed into quite a tripper of the light fantastic himself.

But what a changed man came back from that blissful, fateful West Coast cruise! For our Jack had fallen for a sun-kissed Californian miss after but three short days. Mechanical intricacies of Juice upset him, for despite a determined rally and boning until the small hours, Jack decided that Bullard Vol. 1 was bull and he joined the hundred other Pets who scattered to homes that Spring. We were all glad when Jack rejoined us in December.

As to fussing. Bill indulges only when it offers diversion, he being slightly inclined to less serious and playful types. He has a weakness for bobbed hair. For a tale stranger than fiction, ask him about the little Dianas of Argentine. Academically speaking Bill was never prejudiced against any of the bushes, for Lady Luck was always at his side, and for three years he kept to windward of Academic snares. But Lady Luck forgot him Second Class year with ' 22, when he stripped the gears while juggling rhos and thetas. But real honest luck now came his way.

The best legal talent in the country couldn ' t convince him that any girl is worth putting on a " monkey jacket " for. When it comes to laboring with a wooden room- mate or extending financial aid to friends in distress he is hard to beat, and here in our little institution a better friend hath no man than this. As far as Academics go he doesn ' t have much trouble fooling the various Departments and so long as he has some " oil " handy, exams don ' t worry him.

If the poets were right when they said a 2.5 was harder to get than a 3.5 our dashing hero would jump into the limelight like a kangaroo. Plebe summer made him a past master in the gentle art of executive to such an extent that three stripes fell to his lot during Second Class " Exec " , although a " Squads right " doesn ' t mean a thing to him. Such broad shoulders, good looks, and slick, shiny hair always make a snake and, dressed in his best, he steps with the pick of Crabs. A lovable (.

Volstead is unknown in Lisboa and was forgotten in Bancroft Hall during Christmas leave when Mac was asked to give Christmas Cheer to the P. A. ' s best bets.

The English Department and Mac ' s control panel were short circuited most of Second Class year, but the insulation lasted until English was buried and the chief mourner was none other than Hubert himself!

When we first met him he was singing in a corn fed tenor and Caruso, had he heard his rival, would have exclaimed, " One of us is certainly rotten. " In an argument Joe always admits two sides to every question, his side and the wrong side. His rep was made Plebe year, for when a first classman asked hini, " Mr. Wood, can you herd sheep?, " our Joe replied, " Sir, you mean, have I heard sheep! " He soon recovered and because of his cheerful optimism and winning smile, his friends are numbered legion. Joe ' s athletic ability has earned for him the title of the " One man track team, " while on the flying rings he is the original defier of gravity.

Wherever you hear a " Vic " , you can count on Skag being there practising all the latest steps, for no hop is running true to form unless he is there to give the femmes a treat.

For example, in the spring of his Youngster year he calmly frenched to Baltimore and accidentally chose the very select company of his skinny Prof to ride back with.

Jean Pierre Bernard New Orleans, Louisiana Fete Fierre Jean HERE we have a product of " New Orleans, " the Crescent City. To his friends the name Pierre will always be suggestive of that place and his fondness for discoursing on its merits. Jean is French as his name implies and one can easily see the Jay with which we received him into our French classes. His talents are many and varied; but princi- pally musical. He plays upon the mandolin with great effect — principally upon the unfortunates within hearing distance. Poetry is another hobby, upon which he fairly dotes. As a Second Classman he prefers taking a chance to sweeping out his room. " They will hardly inspect to-day, let ' s have the corridor boy make up the room. " Fussing interests Pierre at frequent intervals. It affects him like the measles, not dangerously, but potently for a time. He manages to survive however, and lives to fuss another day.

He admits it isn ' t the femmes ' fault that they fall for him. The fact that Bill isn ' t wooden and that he never worries, has made it easy for him to laugh at the Academics; if they had a course on the " Army-Navy Register " he would star in it. The Rifle Team has claimed all of his outside attention.

The Academics have never created more than a passing stir and that only when his 2.5 was in danger of being assaulted, but he has been out for about all the sports that are — having no favorites and actually playing in the only basket- ball game ' 23 won. From all that he has said about his happy home we are prone to wonder why it is he ever left, came here, and why once here, he did not immediately return.

The " Wink " is not applicable to his character even if it is to his heart, the latter being fully proved by the host of " little cousins " of whom he boasts and drags.

And to look at Jimmy ' s amiable countenance one would think they were gentle sports, for James rarely gets rhino and when he does he keeps his woes to himself.

All I had to say was ' Follow me, chicks, I ' m full of corn ' and look what flocked m after me. " St. Peter and Dutch looked. A bevy of beautiful angels with rolled socks and bobbed hair were gathered in the doorway. At sight of them, Dutch blared full-tilt into the " St. Louis Blues " with both instruments and his voice simultaneously, and true to his old form.

He conducted his experiments along practical lines and fell a victim so hard early in Second Class year, even the walls that keep the pampered pets along the " straight and narrow " weren ' t big enough to hold him in. But the Exec Department got him then and the U.S.S. Reina Mercedes, one of our latest dreadnaughts, (.?) claimed his attention for quite a while.

Buster started his naval career with Twenty-Two but he got lost in the maze of Math. Poetry, however, is more in his line. His two greatest works being " Frenchy " and " Yours without a Struggle.

There are many who have deep suspicions that he was not very well known in that case. " Now in my home town — " is a favorite topic of his conversation, and we often wonder what dream gave him the first idea of leaving it. Philips- burg and the Passmore house must be a great haven to pass idle hours over a fizzing glass. While just clearing the edge of Youngster year, Henry tripped and fell flat.

" It is not true that the State of Virginia has sent all her brains to the White House. Pugilist, because he has proved his prowess both inside the gym and at no less than two Army games — being most successful in the latter. (Mention Ritz-Carlton to Savvy.) And diplomat, he supplies the ability to everything from hops to navigation. If he knows nothing about the Dago lesson, he writes upon the " In- corrigible French Spirit. " The Prof reads it with tears in his eyes and writes something in his little red book that looks like 3.6. Savvy ' s career as a snake has had its ups and downs, reaching its highest point after the purchase of a new pair of dancing pumps Second Class year.

His command of Anglo-Saxon once led the Engineer Officer to reprove him for giving the Chief in charge of the firemen ' s washroom such large orders. A consistent Red Mike as far as gracing our hops goes, he is highly successful as a Mail Order Snake, for the volume and regularity of his mail provides the Post Office with a steady source of revenue. He has served most faithfully on the sub squad during his entire Academic career, but when it comes to a question of losing Sep leave, the rapidity with which he learns to swim would make a marvelous advertisement for any Corres- pondence course.

You can ' t argue with this boy, for he has a comeback that is a combination of laughter, wit, and horse sense. His predominant charac- teristic is his refusal to let things worry him, and is the answer to the question that arises when one learns of his many thrilling, but short, romances, and his numerous close shaves in Math and Juice. As a matter of fact the latter subject was the prox- imate cause of his taking an eight month leave, and a cruise to South America, and that is still furnish- ing hair raising tales to the credulous. But, a spe- cial act of Congress made him a midshipman again, and he is now furnishing amusement to all the undersized Plebes. He has worked consistently in athletics, and has contributed his cheery share to most of the Aca- demy ' s activities. " Boy, wait until you see the queen I ' m dragging Saturda y. What.?

Variety being the spice of life, Ham requires no further seasoning in matrimony, having had four wives in his Academic career, and what the future holds, who knows i " For two burning years Ham and Lady Fatima played the ancient and honorable game of catch-as- catch-can, with Ham always top side. His musical vocabulary is limited to two bugle calls, chow and taps, chow being his favorite, because he hasn ' t heard the second for so long. Always sat, seldom starring, willing to talk about any subject under the sun and moon, Ham is of the non-reg, non-rhino type and, best of all, he ' d give you his shirt, if he had one.

For two whole years the fair sex failed to attract him, but second class stripes were too much for him and he blossomed forth — a red headed woman was the cause of it all. It ' s hard to appreciate him without his fiddle, because he has yet to learn how to play and sing at the same time. When he arrives at the stage of com- bining the two, he ' ll require special consideration. Plebe year he decided to learn t. loot and he ' s been at it steadily, ever since.

Savvy? Most cer- tainly. A 3.0 in Academics and a 4.0 in femininity come to him just like water to a duck. Good looks and an ever-ready eye have caused him no concern, the main sufferers being those of the opposite sex and a buUseye. Not so pious but that he enjoys a day ' s liberty in any ancient port, or an Army-Navy game ' s mdulgences at Shanley ' s, his dissipations even sometimes extend to Kipling and De Maupassant, for literary value only. His capacity as a connoisseur is strictly limited to selection, never extending to acceptance. Non-reg.? Plebe year and its unrest almost cured him of that mental disease. What remains is his ability, an enviable one, to dodge detection. A truer friend could be found nowhere, and the profession which he has chosen will be the gainer of the best through him.

Given half a chance he will inform you that he would consider himself unfortu- nate had he been born anywhere else. But there are other elements in his claim for fame in which he does not concur so promptly. There is the item of sea-sickness, for instance. Dick was sea-sick, constantly, from Crabtown to Seattle on his first cruise — and then he probably went back to Donnellson (population 531, 1920 census) and posed as a regular sea-dog and Father Neptune ' s favorite son. And that isn ' t all. Besides being an animated compendium of general — and mis-information, Dick has the poetry habit. From time to time the Log is permitted to print his verses. He says in his own defence that he has never written a poem en- titled " Beautiful Spring " , and doesn ' t intend to — but the evidence is all against him. " I ' ll be a sailor yet!

Colorado lost a killer of horses when she lost Billie — and the Navy gained a killer of work. Clouds and sunshine chase each other through Billie ' s spiritual spectrum, and, due to the regularity of the mail service, the sunshine manages to predominate.

" Although Mac swears that the way he spells his name shows that he is Scotch, his rapid flow and ready smile prove that at least one of his ancestors kissed the Blarney stone. Despite a voluminous correspondence, he has found tmie to do some wicked pin pushing, common- ly called fencing, and make the class team in this sport. Being a midshipman is only a side issue with Mac, his real vocation is coaxing tunes from a banjo. Mac has a blaseness which is but an expression of his desire for the new and original. The new attracts him, but not for a moment. Mac sticks to the worth while things.

Bill is a radical physical culturist and a strong advocate of Walter Camp ' s " Daily Dozen " . To jump out of bed on a cold morning, run thru them, then break the ice in the shower and jump in is child ' s play for him. He has played soccer ever since he has been with us and handles a soccer ball with three men on it as easily as a Fifth Avenue cop handles traffic. Parlor athletics are the only things that William has not gone out for, and ever since Youngster year he has remained a consistent Red Mike. Being quiet and reserved by nature, he is always afraid that some femme will make him smile and show his dimples. Some day we hope to see Bill come into his own with the fair sex, but we are afraid that the happy day will not come until after he has departed from without these gray walls.

" Who have we here but one of Wisconsin ' s dairy farms in animated form. By the end of Youngster cruise Nellie had exchanged his rustic vocabulary for the richer Navy line. But even now he delights in telling the boys just how it is done on the farm, or how to calculate the egg-hour output of the average hen. Achilles may have had a bum heel, but Nellie ' s heart would make the old boy turn green with envy. At each hop he discovers the only girl. The Radiator Club has learned to painfully endure the virtues of his latest. And why not. Jens will tell you that the little girl in red would make Venus herself look like a plate of reg Nav beans at a New Year ' s ban- quet. Nellie has his hobbies, too. He likes to wear old shoes and old caps. He delights in picking out some ancient tune on his mandolin.

Around exam times, it ' s almost necessary to have traffic cops, to prevent congestion among the wooden men passing to and from his room. But Savvy ' s one claim to fame, if you believe him, is that he ' s never made a faux pas in society. If you believe us, however, his only right to boast lies in the fact that he sometimes gets away with them. To get ' arry up in the air, it ' s only necessary to remind him of that night in Baltimore, when he utterly withered one of our most charming debu- tantes with a remark that would have made a salty bos ' n ' s mate wearing fifteen hash marks, turn green with envy.

Chattanooga has contributed much to his reputation as a Lothario by consistent correspondence, and frequent candy. The Rebs may be narrow-minded, but their open pursuit of " Boots " makes us believe that theory is wrong, because only one of savoir-faire and poise can bring him home.

Here ' s luck, " Boots " , they ' re as scarce as spoons in the third wing were Plebe j ' ear.

Old Erin has no rooter more enthusiastic than Shorty, " What do those fellows over there want anyhow .i " " never fails to explode the fireworks. Under the old regime his habits were model. Neither Lady Nicotine, Lady Luck nor any other lady meant anything to him; but with the coming of the new regs Shorty fell for the Bearded Lady hard, and from the looks of the mails, also for some other lady — Carleton Roof? Commodore. ' ' Qui sait?. ' J Once upon a time way back in the misty months of Plebe year the heavens fell and Shorty frapped the bush.

A Red Mike because being otherwise would take time from studies and anyway, the right girl has never brightened his azimuth. A steady gomg, more likeable man would be hard to find. Drill and Exec usually find him in charge — " usually " because he is sometimes on duty. His experiences along the Extra Duty line are remark- ably lacking — and he is non-reg, too. Since he learned to smoke (late in Youngster year) he has wooed Lady Nic most passionately — but he still sweeps out every morning and creases his bed on both sides, so he is beyond suspicion.

In fact, he is one of our most hot-headed Southerners, and claims Virginia as his native state. If you are thirsting for an argument you will find Tony at all times ready to fight over any phase of the Civil War, from State ' s Rights to Appomattox. With that dashing air of his, that far-off, wistful look in his eyes, coupled with a line that would make C. Alphonso turn green with envy, it is no wonder that our Tony is a veritable Beau Brummel with the ladies. Almost any evening you will find him penning a billet doux to some sweet young thing, or boning Cosmo.

A beautiful coat of indoor tan, topped off by the vermilion tmt of his proboscis, furnished a realistic background for his vivid tales of Barbary. With a fantastic pantomine to illustrate each funny anec- dote, he can go from the sublime to the ridiculous with that ease and grace so indicative of his varie- gated personality.

Combining executive ability in the adminis- tration of the activities of the football team, with a talent for the mastery of educational problems, he is a somewhat unusual figure in the realm of pedago- gical propaganda. A native of Arkansas, he is proud of his pro- genitors and of the glorious State whence he sprang. The equestrian proclivities engendered at an early age are still evidenced by the concavity of his nether extremities. His pulchritudinousness may be open to argument, and some there are that affirm its non-existence. Be that as it may, beyond peradventure of a doubt, he has the propensity of winning the fair sex, seem- ingly at will. Jimmie never mixes adjectives, and his sweet dream-word pictures of southern fantasies always soothe the feminine ear. He has an uncanny command of language and is at all times polysyllabic in his utterances, for mere monosyllables are pathet- ically inadequate to convey his high-powered ideas. " Well, I told you so.

S. N. A. There is no need of asking where " Mooney " is from, for it only takes a docile ear to hear the tales of the coast of Delaware, the coastwise schooners, the coast guard and every wreck between Capes Charles and Henelopen. On observation one realizes why he is called " Mooney " and " Fat-face " , for his rotund counten- ance circumscribes a virile crop of bush which explains the numberless paps — " Improperly shaved " . A great lover of boats, " Mooney " would rather watch the ferry boat than chow, and that ' s saying something. When our famed " Gov.

One of Rojina ' s bitterest disiUusionments was the discovery that the D. O. ' s were not courteous in this particular. As a concession they did let him spend his moments of meditation and prayer with everything necessary to revenge except said pellet. His mental energy would not be entirely suppressed, however, and if he couldn ' t teach people by simple methods, the finer art of oratory might help. To this end he has succeeded in developing a line so wicked, varied and diverse that English Profs have been known to praise. If his beloved Texas had not instilled cer- tain other principles. Red might have employed the fluent gift in maintaining a large correspondence. As It IS, he does well enough to keep his roommates in a fever heat of jealous envy.

We ' ve seen him pull an oar with the most unso- phisticated grace imaginable, and oncetheincredulous rabble almost caught him on the cruise when he volunteered to play the oom-pah, but since nobody else knew what the darned thing should sound like, there was no way to tell whether he was bluffing, or coming through — as usual.

No, you ' re wrong — Tom believes that every man should have an O. A. 0. He hasn ' t gone that far himself just yet, but give him time. He nearly had one after the Penn State game last year. Tom believes that eating toast will sharpen the teeth, and that walks before breakfast will sharpen the wits and the appetite. He ' s going to be a keen fellow. For a while Tom had a " rep " of which Rip Van Winkle himself would have been proud. But it seems that one morning about two a. m. he had a night-mare in which several lions attacked him, whereupon he woke up with a bang. And he ' s never put in a sound sleep since. But the interesting point IS this — Tom, with his wits sharpened by early morning walks and his teeth sharpened on toast, after a long struggle hnally defeated the lions. Since that incident Tom has lived peacefully, and here ' s hoping that he overcomes all future obstacles just as he did the lions. Class Boxing (2).

Starting on the life of leisure from the one and only town, he has traveled far to get it but he sure has won the crown. First in Honolulu balmy, then beneath old Mt.

Con- quering frigid Norway ' s lingo with tenacious bull- dog grit, he quite promptly, without effort, with a Norske made a hit.

Early Plebe summer this good-looking Irisher pushed open the mam gate, and since that time his only worry has been whether old age or baldness would overtake him first. Since Mike entered the Home he has been a steady worker m helping to make all our athletic teams a success. He eats on the training table all year round, and he considers it a tea fight to sit at a regular table. He is a happy-go-lucky Irishman and spends about sixteen hours each day sleeping, and yet manages to stay sat. On the cruise it was common to hear his division officer say, " Flaherty ' s name is on this list, but I ' ll be darned if I ' ve ever seen him.

" " I just thmk he is the dearest little man. " These and sundry other remarks are overheard when Mac descends in the femmes ' midst. He doesn ' t drag often, but when he does he leaves a mean wake after him. Mac has an uncanny ability for putting over any kind of a business deal. Ever since he arrived at our table and proceeded to take charge of our Red-eye bottle Mac has shown his ability to take charge of any kind of an undertaking.

Before long he was trying for the Academy. It was one beautiful day in June when he said " good bye " to cit life, but not so to Mac. He thought it was December. The Upper Classmen, try as they would by the olive oil cure, could not make him stop his laughing — he would laugh in spite of all they could do. Youngster year we found him somewhat changed, a man free to " drag " . Cynical, always that way with the so-called femmes. A snake he was, is now, and ever shall be. Vernon Castle could not show this Irishman one new thing — but he is very serious at times especially when a Nav P-work is scheduled dead ahead — that is, if he isn ' t thinking about the miniature.

D., as he soon became one of the favorite visitors of certain Upper Classmen. He certainly provided his share of their entertainment, due probably to the fact that he had such a serious nature. But his turn came the next year, and he amply availed him- self of this opportunity to get his quota of the fun. Also as a Youngster he broke away from some of his Red Mike traits and now, to speak in the vernacular of the pampered pets, he is somewhat of a snake. But there are nobler things in life than fussing flappers, says this Iowa boy. Evidently he means it too, because there is much more visible satisfac- tion registered on his manly countenance when he draws down a star av erage in steam than when he drags a cold forty to one of the weekly work-outs. We should delight in seeing some dainty flapper pierce the armor that certainly must be around his heart.

He was the proverbial prophet without honor. So marked was his ability in Calculus that to prevent complete- ly revolutionizing the subject, the Math Department was forced to bilge him. A second seismical episode occured when Ruf was unceremoniously shanghied to the Reina to ponder over some solution of educational problems, other than his choke-bore broom and a determination to use it. A glance at the above facsimile should establis h his innocence. It didn ' t to the authori- ties, but his line did. His remarkable love for fellow-beings finally found practical expression in the gentle sport of wrestling. Three years of successful mayhem were rewarded by the captaincy of Navy ' s wrecking crew, an event which he celebrated by wearing a collar for the first time since Plebe year.

J m Thomas Reed Molloy Yuma, Arizona " Tom " " Molly " " Harp " IN the year 1918, Arizona sent forth one of its proud sons, who, following in the footsteps of his " kid " brother, sojourned at the Naval School for boys. In his first year certain problems in chess, which was then the fad, occupied his time to the exclusion of his studies, especially " Dago " . He was turned back into the next lower class in the hope that another year at the Naval Academy would make his tongue more limber. If you have ever met Tom Molloy there have been two opinions formed. Your opinion of him, and his opinion of you. There is a certain positive aggres- siveness about him which permits of no half-way measures, (except at the eye-test in sick bay). If you don ' t like him you respect him, if he doesn ' t like you he forgets you. Not being an athlete Molloy trained himself with the sole purpose of treating the " femmes " . While not always successful, he was at least persistent. His motto is " get ' em young and treat ' em rough.

And the best part of it is that he isn ' t the least bit afraid to admit it. Four years at Bordentown, and a campaign bar from Amherst, he was military enough for five stripes, but took to correspondence and art instead.

So ignorant of naval things was he that it ' s said he spent half of Plebe summer trying to devise a brake that would stop the " Pennsy " in a hundred yards. He has been more or less prominent in class base- ball, having been our class pitcher since Youngster year, when due to his control, he won his coveted numerals and great conceit of himself as a future Christy Mathewson.

He came to us from the land of the bathing beauties, and from the appearance of his ever-rosy cheeks it is easy to judge that he spent considerable of his time at the beach enjoying the native wonders of his territory. This also accounts for his unusual cog- nomen, Rosie. Don has had a trying career at the Academy, but as each year has passed, we always see him clinging to the class with a desperate grip. He is not wooden, but rather inclined to worship the God of luck, and it must be admitted that he has been favored with the pleasure of his idol. Put Rosie in water and he becomes a fish. Not the quiet, graceful sort, although he IS very gentle, but the brutish type that is always evinced by his activity in a game of water-polo. He has been an ever-present quantity in Neptune ' s squad. His ability as a snake is practically unknown, but when he does mingle with the fair sex, his beauty is the envy of them all.

Since then his range of drags has been wide and varied, but his general average has made his fussing well worth while. As a charter member of the Radiator Club he reigns supreme. Except on leave, sleep has always been very essential to him. With his ability to sleep at any time, anywhere and in any position, insomnia will never be a menace to him. Heaving the heavy line has long been a favorite pastime of his. That he is both entertaining and instructive is evidenced by the fact that, after tour long years his friends are still glad to sit down and listen for hours at a time.

Rosy couldn ' t resist the overwhelming temp- tation to caulk a bit durmg a steam exam, but even then he came out all right, thus proving that he carries his horseshoe habitually. Many fiery debates have ensued in the Third Battalion when some one doubted Waldy ' s version of a matter; but only when that person failed to realize into what he was getting himself. Waldy ' s pleasure is immense in greeting a heavy weight rival with " My, but you are getting fat. You had better watch out or you will go out of here with the rest of these overweights. " After numerous workouts, several fellows have acknowledged Waldy as " Daddy " , and they now look up to him for an occasional inspiration, or a bit of fatherly advice. Choice and Chance is one of Rosy ' s long suits, and his is usually a long chance.

The greasy brutes so appreciated his technique in exams that two encores were requested. Pauline is a confirmed Red Mike, but our fair friends have missed a treat.

Always on the very safe side of a 3.0 he has wor- ried little about the Academics and cared less.

Notice that we don ' t say from what part of that state, for he has lived in as many different cities as the Supe has service ribbons. That ' s where he gets his cosmopolitan air! Of the fairer sex he is extremely fond, but at the same time cautious. To induce him to drag blind one must produce pictures of the drag taken at two year intervals during her entire life, the latest to be not more than three months previous to date of dragging. Is it any wonder that his average is well over the 3.0 mark as judged by the most dis- criminating of Plebes.? His moods vary from that fascinating sport of breaking the glass on other people ' s doors to that of great dignity when he tells his assistant to " Take charge while I make out my laundry list. " It is fortunate for the rest of us that Gat is an athlete, for during the months that he is on the crew table we store up enough energy to carry us through the rest of the year.

He is in love! In spite of his losing heart during Second Class year he has kept up an enviable athletic record. A man of one hundred forty-five pounds, a member of the class football team, the football B-squad, and the capable captain of the class lacrosse team. We salute you " Stenne. " Aside from his athletic achievements he has made a friend of every man in the class. He was ever willing to " lend a hand " , always carried a contagious smile, a roommate par excellence, a leader and a per- fect gentleman. No man is perfect, however, and Blackie has his " weaknesses " . He insists upon eating peanuts at the movies, crunches Ward ' s cakes in fiendish glee, plays " five hundred " and reads " The Framingham Evening News " .

Though Binney is quite serious he has a passion for jazz and the joke about the speck which can be seen from both sides. He also dotes on the art of Coles Philips and he has it plastered all over his locker. He can out-argue any Irishman and never lacks a subject. Interest else-where keeps him from the ranks of the vicious snakes but he ' s almost too good looking to waste. For a friend and roommate he can ' t be beaten.

It was the old, old story of that intangible something which beckons to us all, which makes us hate to leave the service we love to support and be a part of. Zim was filled with good intentions, but like most such cases, — intentions were all they ever became. The Academics were not easily conquered by him and they kept him pretty busy. At first we thought he was going to be a confirmed Red Mike for during his first three years we seldom saw him at a hop. However, his later years saw big changes and he became a snake of the true type. If you want some advice, ask him, for he has seen it from both sides.

Whereupon he was lost from the rolls of ' 22, but where they lost we won, and have with us a conscientious, diligent worker. During the time he was on the great outside he again yielded to the call of the sea. Three weeks after leaving our midst he became third mate in the Merchant Marine. For seven months he made regular trips and return to the principal cities on the east coast of South America. After having crossed and re-crossed that famous line which marks the realms of " Father Neptune " , he decided that the sea was to be his future home; so when he re- ceived notice that he could return to the Academy he left the S.

This ominous date meant nothing, however, for he immediately ascended from the ranks to a high position of authority involving command of men though, alas, his rise resembled that of the well-known elevator boy and he went straight to the bottom again upon the occasion of a bombing expedition on unsuspecting mess mokes. The remark often heard " Frankie could star if he would work " shows his uncanny ability to fool the Profs without the slightest efforts of study. He is not lazy — far from it — but he believes that effi- ciency consists of saving every bit of unnecessary energy for possible emergencies. His four successful years on the tennis team prove that this love of ease and comfort has not impeded his progress in the athletic world.

His favorite pastime is the pursuit of leisure, and, though handicapped by the powers that be, is fairly successful at it.

But here he is, and we try to make the best of it, although his main topic, the charms of his 0. A. O., at times causes us to writhe, tear our hair and reach for the mallet. In spite of the aforementioned attributes of a snake that Goat possesses, he has never let the wiles of the fairer sex tear him away from the one at home, except in one or two rare cases, all of which are almost too painful to mention.

" As to the femmes it seems that no one has scored a knockout, due to the fact that he made a late start. However at the present rate something must happen. When it comes to heaving everything on the deck over week-ends he takes the fur-lined goboon. The only way we can get to bed Saturday nights is by diving. Work never interferes with his pleasure — he " al- ways finds time for his tennis and his whist. " " Too late to bone — I ' m already unsat.

" " Rowdy Dow " " Tommy " THOMAS Jefferson arrived from sunny Caro- line early in July, and enjoyed his first morn- ing in the Navy by sitting in bed wondering why all the Plebes were running around so early in the morning, when he had no thought of even gettmg up. He had a rude awakening the next day, but since has developed the science of sleeping in to perfec- tion. T. J. maintains that he is the one and original Red Mike. Those who aspire to this honor have no chance with him, but, an A. M. C. can tell you, " There ' s a reason — " one letter a day, month after month. Tommy is well known to the executive department and to " Calipers " , our departed friend. Only 270 demerits for Youngster year, but at least no one else topped his record, due to the excellent work of the D. O. ' s, who never did miss T. J. Tom reformed, or else became more expert.

" Class Football (2, J); {2, I); D AN Daniel Francis Joseph Shea HoLYOKE, Massachusetts " Dan " " Savvy " " Danny " is a staunch advocate of Irish freedc especially in speech. Upon occasions, when the question in hand was Work versus Words he has nobly defended the latter cause; and this lost art has in no small way accounted for the success he has attained. When Dan entered the Navy he was little troubled with the fair sex, but by the first Sept leave he was left with the same harrowing uncertainties known to others possessing good looks. A hale and rosy complexion is his captivating charm. And you need not know him long to appreciate his contempt for detail and the blunt directness that is characteristic of his very effort. He has been diligent in upholding the reputation of his state, having ended Plebe year with a final average of 3.39 plus, losing by a mere fraction the honor to display the much-coveted orb of gold. Nevertheless he shows due consideration to the wooden. If you are in trouble, go to him. His broad smile and a few words will help you, and they are given willingly.

How- ever, these same long legs helped him to get his name on the Lysistrata Cup during Second Class cruise. Ding has had many ups and downs during his naval career. He started his troubles by wearing tennis shoes to his first formation in the capacity of a midshipman. Then he heard for the first time the nautical phrase, " You ' re on the pap. Mister! " His fame then grew by leaps and bounds, not even stopping when he became a Youngster, because that year he went over the top before Xmas leave. But we won ' t have any fear of his not getting by, even a P. G. course, for Plebe year he stood 69, Youngster year 47, and Second Class year he star- red. His outstanding characteristic is his ambition to be a leader. If study is the deciding factor, success is his, for many are the regrets that it is impossible to devote over twelve hours a day to books. " Say, Mister King, how do you rate two laundry numbers.?

William Edward Stock, Jr. Virginia City, Nevada " Bill " " Stoke " THE only thing we know about Virginia City is that it ' s Eddie ' s home podunk. Why he chose the Navy is more than a mystery even to himself. It was nothing more than an impulse that drew him across the continent out of the wilds of Nevada. He doesn ' t belong to the savvy class, nor is he made of wood. Although the Cosmo and Red Book claim much intense study, he manages to keep top- side on the Academic Departments. You wouldn ' t call Eddie either an athlete or a weakling, a snake or a woman-hater. He is just a good-natured, easy-going normal boy whose man- ner makes him a good mixer in any crowd. How- ever, as might be expected, there ' s a one and only one, which accounts for that regularity of the blue letters, post-marked California. If there ' s anything Eddie likes better than base- ball it ' s — " more baseball. " " Fruit for the D. O ' s. " " Say, was that reveille? " Sub Squad {4, 3, 2). XiJti £ Z,l L,L,lJ,jl,L,l,X:,LLLi:L. UISEL Paul Brogden Koonce Lonoke, Arkansas " P. 5. " " Lead " IT must be wonderful to be able, at any hour of the day or night, to respond to the call of Morp- heus the way Paul can. He ' s so graceful, too, when he ' s asleep. Whenever P. B. bones for an exam up goes the sign on the door, " Busy " , and woe be unto him who crosses the threshold then. Not that Paul is chronically inhospitable, but when he makes up his mind to do a thing all the persuasion in the world will do no good to stop him — of course swearing off smoking does not count. His inborn Southern graces make him in his spells of spasmodic fussing the most dangerous of snakes, but it suits his fancy better to play the role of a cast-in-the-rough Red Mike. Over-endowed, perhaps, with the habit of taking life a little too seriously, P. B. casts aside now and then his shell of reticence, and then how the boy steps out. " And say, old man, I did have the best time, but now I gotta bone and pull sat. " William Boswell Rigsby Augusta, Georgia BRETHERN and Sistern: It becomes necessary in these few words to write the last will and testament of William Boswell Rigsby, Supreme Knight of the Scoop. Bosh, as he is known by his friends (it ' s " Botch " with the Plebes though) is a true Southern gentleman. The oldest inhabi- tants of Bancroft Hall cannot recall his ever having done a stroke of work. Blessed with the belief that he is an " athlete " , W. Boswell has passed from one excused-from-supper-formation list to another without havuig been forced to show his divine form in a single contest. But even this record pales into insignificance when one considers that he is a charter member of the Gas-House Gang, an organization prominent in the Police Gazettes of the world. With " Brim " , a brother member of this noble band of cut-throats, he has awaited with ill-con- cealed impatience the arrival of many W. B. A. cars. However, the cars very rarely bring the same maid twice. (That ' s a dirty dig). Although he has been known to squeeze a nickle till the buffalo bel- lows, still we are positive that in consigning this man to history we can prophesy that he will be a wor- thy descendant of the founders of his state — and Bosh comes from Georgia.

Early Youngster year a certain malicious femme discovered this flaw in our hero ' s otherwise impregnable make-up, and since that time Ras ' s career, social and otherwise, has been one mighty chase. Especially in chapel does he delight in giving color to an otherwise dull and gloomy out-look by his timely blushes, staged in the front row of the psalm-singers. For the past two years " Crabsby " has served as a love-barometer for these cave-dwellers of the fourth deck to whom his every frown and smile is an indi- cation of paradise lost or regained. Always on the right side of the terrifying All- Academics, Ras has devoted his spare moments impartially between a wooing of Morpheus and a purely platonic passion for athletics. Despite these horrible eccentricities, Ginny has displayed those qualities that make for success in any enter- prise, be it in the Service or civilian life. " Ginny.?

John Donald Kelsey Stoughton, Massachusetts Don Jazvn TO gaze upon this sedate son of the Bay State one would never think him to be an expert home-wrecker, but when the spirit moves his care- free heart, the victims are fortunate to retain even the walls of their once happy homes. Control your fears, ladies, for you are immune; he confines his playful destruction to his classmates ' rooms. Don is not a snake. No! He just drags, spasmodi- cally, whenever his dormant love of romance bids, but in spite of his many guests of the fair sex only once has his heart fluttered, skipped a note or two, and then regained it ' s pace. John has his victories and defeats with the Aca- demic department, but on the whole he manages to keep beaiicoiip velvet.

Yet when to my mind the traces Of that sea of sentient faces Rise again, to warm the cockles of my inmost heart of hearts, Fve a feeling weak and t utile, Inefficient and inutile. Bursting bubble-dreams of writing into fifty million parts! Hence I gravely grin and greet you, Pending time when I shall meet you In your Sunday twilight doings or just any sort of way. For I ' m for you to the finish With a love that can ' t diminish Though they cut and cut the navy to abolish future fray. One lone prophecy I ' m making — Real seer-stuff, free from faking: Let them decimate the number of the ships and of the men; Yet when you boys take the water, Craving peace but set for slaughter. We shall have that " greater navy " back upon the job again. — Strickland Gillilan. 262 On the tenth day of June in the year nineteen hundred and nineteen, the sun as it came up over Kent Island saw twenty or thirty strange creatures in the neighborhood of the Maryland Avenue Gate. Strange they were in their actions, and an observer would have said that they were about to enter into some mysterious experiment from which they would emerge and live — but never to be the same again. The observer would have been right, for this group of lost souls constituted the first appearance of the Class of Nine- teen Twenty-Three as it came forth on that June morning to be sworn into the Navy and to be sworn at for life. And to that meager, eager crowd more were added, until later in August seven hundred and twenty boys had been gathered to be fed as raw material into the machine which turns out Naval Officers. The first day of a plebe is one of the bad dreams which will haunt him as an admiral. Clothes! Clothes! Clothes!

With resignation written large on his face as well as in his mind, the new plebe begins to stencil and mark each article, referring carefully to a printed sheet which says that one demerit will I | be given for each piece ' not properly marked, but which neglects to say just where or how to mark them! But the day is over. All clothes are marked. Each plebe has conscien- tiously thrown away his tobacco and wondered how the burned places came to be on the table — as if anyone would dare to smoke. " Taps " sounds and a tired and homesick boy crawls in between two nice, new, stiffly starched sheets spread over a sec- tion of some old corru- gated iron roof, to com- pose himself — no, not to sleep, but to wonder what they had for dinner at home, and to wish that a cheery call of " good night " would come sing- ing through his door as it " " - ' ' ■ ' did of old when he lay curled up on his own soft, warm bed. The call does come, but not as he had wished — for suddenly a head appears in his doorway and a brand new ensign in the sweet, pleasant tone peculiar to one who is a recent graduate, inquires Crawled in between new stiffly starched sheets politely " all in — you? " The plebe who answered " hell, yes, who wouldn ' t be after a day like this ? " was forgiven, for after all — well, it was a decided change. Came morning, and with reveille was born hope, which, with expecta- tion, made the days fly. June and July consisted of sweltering days of weird adventures, for the thrill of really being a midshipman had not yet worn off. Then August, even more swelter- ing, when the adventures became rou- tine work. Infantry — scorching sun one of the three or four mile runs which were -to make them big and strong, they found that during the night six dark gray clouds had floated up the bay and overcast the horizon. Have you ever seen a small boy after having planned and planned for an all day picnic, when he awakes on Saturday morning to find rain? ' If you have watched his expression, or better still if you have been the boy yourself, you win understand the " gone " feeling in each plebe heart. The next day came a hike. While the plebes were gone Runs — to make them big and strong and gigantic Springfields; Seamanship — breathless humidity and ton-weight oars; Rifle Range — dancing heat waves, dust, and the stench of powder. And then at the day ' s end — luxurious relax- ation in the cool-hot evenings, looking out over a bay made glorious by a ris- ing moon, while exchanges of confi- dences bound the class more closely together, until unified at last it began to feel that it was a part of the Navy. And then — August thirty-first! On that morning when the regiment of plebes assembled before breakfast for 264 Clothes! Clothes! Clothes! the upper classmen were rushed through the Academy and when the plebes re- turned they were gone. But behind them they left a trail of terror which haunted dreams with a promise of things to be. On the first day of their first Aca- demic year began the process of " snap- pin ' em out of it " . " Mister " , cold chills run up and down the back of each plebe within hearing, " you with the non-reg face, come here " . Some- You zvith the non-reg face, come here! trtrmrtrtr r tr wvtrvrt fr body ' s little boy was about to receive his first lesson in holding his temper and keeping quiet while he was held for the mistakes of the world, past, present, and future, and properly rep- rimanded for them. The process was heartless but brief. Within a week the plebe had learned that he is the lowest form of animal life in the navy, but that in spite of his inferior position he was responsible for the answers to any and all questions that may be asked. Just once he replied " I " don ' t know, sir " . The resulting action was too swift to follow and too hor- rible to describe. f The resulting action There were others, also, who banded themselves together to make life joy- less. The Academic departments had provided a course of instruction to be covered in one term which in any col- lege requires at least one year. And such useless subjects had to be studied. English, French, Spanish, not a thing about ships or guns, or how to be a sailor as had been expected; for it seems that before one can take his place on the quarter deck one must not only be able to speak perfect profanity to a sailor, but English to a politician, French to a Haitian, and Spanish to a Mexican. One thing, and one thing only, made life liveable al- ter the first two weeks. And dope True insignificance hidden under the smart blue outfit SprUUg etCr- Dope sprungs eternal nal at this time of year in such re- marks as " I hear that French does the hundred in ten flat in his football gear " , or " We can ' t lose. We have the best line in the East. " That year tales of pre-war celebrations were told and revived. Clouds! Rain! Mud! In the open stands sat the regi- ment and watched Army buried in the ooze of defeat as the Navy team ran over, under, and around them. Who minded rain or mud? " We licked ' em! " wastheonly thought, and instead of spirits being dampened by the rain they absorbed it and grew, until that night the cele- bration, which covered all of Manhattan Is- land and parts of Brooklyn, was indeed a classic, for the older Navy join- ed in and, to the ama zement of all , did not follow the younger lead — they set the pace themselves. Since expectation maintains life so did the dreams of Christmas leave just a month away sustain morale long enough for thirty days to roll by. Four days is not long but nearly everyone got home, though some spent most of their time on trains. It was worth it, for after six months of plebe life who will deny that home with the love that was there, and her home with the love that each man hoped was there, were 265 The civilian life all had begun to envv i trvnr rtrtrarur «rT»rtrtr rur«rtr»r9rv rvrt arafv»r trtrtrarir r rtr»r»rtr r»rtrt rv rfr»rir»r rtrtr rtr»rv riftrtr v not worth, even for a few hours, four days anywhere else. And added to that how important one felt in uniform at home among one ' s old friends; for back in Indiana no one realized the A person of iynporlance true insignificance hidden under the smart blue outfit. The next rung on the ladder of plebedom was not so pleasant to climb. In the middle of the already too rough course there was a river with a myriad of unknown dangers which, if the plebe weakened in crossing, would pull him down in the current and land him out- side the wall — a bilger. Everyone bilged the semi-anns. It was the prop- er thing to do. To hear each man ' s tale you would have thought that not one had survived. Contrary to ap- pearances St. Valentine ' s Day brought only about eighty valentines in the form of resignations for those unsatis- factory, and the class settled down for the long pull ahead. From February to June was a long time! New work failed to break the monotony, and then when the anns began to hold hints of Spring, work died a sudden death, and the days were spent only in dreaming of the " some day " when each plebe sleeve, no longer a plebe sleeve, would be adorned by one gold stripe. There was no leave to cheer one, just one or two holidays, tantalizing tastes of lite which would be realized were the daily fantasies to come true. The long pull! Some fell by the way and returned to the civilian life which all had begun to envy. Those who remained were faced by another river as hard to cross as the previous one, but met this time with more confidence. And with the Anns 266 came class pins and hope, each man like a living volcano impatiently awaiting the day of eruption when the badge ot plebedom should be gone and he would take his place in the Navy as a person of consequence — a man wi th rates. June Week — both too long and too short. Too long until graduation, and too short to spend all the time necessary with " her " . The Army-Navy game came and went, with the Army again cowed by the goat. Drills, presenta- tions; drills, hops; drills, drills. At last! Speeches — diplomas — graduation; but what cared a plebe for these things, when just outside the Armory was a gravel walk, the only " Lover ' s Lane " , on which he had never dared to set his foot. The end! As he saw his com- pany commander receive his diploma the volcano came near to boiling over, for first hot and then cold chills ran up and down his spine, where once there had been a plebe brace. A Youngster he was, and, for the next twenty-four hours so near to a god that it was doubtful if he would have traded places with all Olympus. The snake dance on " The Lane " to the tune of " ' Taint no mo ' Plebes " was the volcanic eruption of one year ' s pent-up vitality. And as we reluctant- ly left the lane after having cheered everything and everyone, who could begrudge us our independent airs and our self-satisfied smiles. In each brand new youngster ' s heart was the feeling C2: Our srlf-salisfied smiU " I have climbed the first hill. I am well on my way toward the peak trom which, ■ never forgetting this day ot days, I can look proudly down — an admiral. " |aA. «. .A. Toungster Tear Being a " ' oungster is a snare and a delusion most any way you take it. After looking for- ward to it for eight months as the goal ot Heart ' s Desire with that one diag gleaming broader and brighter than an admiral ' s armful of gold there are many jolts and quite a bit ot disillusionment when the actuality really comes. To the plebe a youngster is a pestilence, to the upper classes a source of worry, and to the youngster himself he is the most abused and downtrodden mortal on the face of the earth. His whole attitude is non-reg, mentally; while outwardly he lives up to the motto " Get away with what you can. " Twenty-two used to say that we had a bond of sympathy in com- mon with them; both had lived a year under the slogan, " ' Taint a youngster rate! " It is only natural that such things should be, however, when the circumstances are con- sidered. A year of close restriction at the academy; a summer of much labor; the never- to-be-forgotten youngster leave when the world and all that therein is belongs exclusively to the wearer of the one stripe; all of them lead natu- rally to the final product, the average young- ster. It is small wonder that the first of the academic year finds him rating just under lieutenant-commander with a disposition more sensitive than an opera singer ' s. Ready to do anything if there is a chance, however slender, of getting away with it, he is exceedingly mcen- sed if something slips and a first classman in righteous wrath pitches into him. Happy-go- lucky, thy name is Youngster! We were no excep- tion to the rule, in fact we went a little the other way if anything and went the rule a few better. In the due course of time The average youngster we began to shake down into place and things began to go a little smoother. The glamor took quite a while to wear off, though. To be able to shuffle down the corridor with blou unbuttoned and hands in belt, to get a Sir from the plebes and " 1 L ' Taint a youngster rate realize that some one else was the under dog. to drag weekends certain that the general average of the regiment ' s fair ones was pulled up a whole tenth thereby; wonderful feelings all, and it was months before they lapsed into the commonplace. In many things it has seemed as though we were just a class ahead or behind where we ought ' 4 to be to gather in the berries. Our plebe sum- mer was spent largely un- der the old system, while the classes following got liberty and leaves that we never knew. Just as soon as we rated drag- ging the hour hop liberty disappeared and the Sat- urday Night Marathon took its place, with even three-quarters of an hour hardly enough to say a satisfactory good night to the O. A. O., or to find Blou unbultoiiea, out what was a satis- haniis in belt 267 • • ' «r«r»r»r«r«r»r« ir»r« ' «r«r«7 ' « « «r«r«r4i ' «r«r«r«r«r«riiriir« ' «r« tr« «r-« cr ' «f»i Saturday Night Marathon factory good night to the one you didn ' t know very well. As youngsters we lost our Vies and missed out on the second class 2 P. O. game that brought extra privilege to the class ahead. But all that was under the old regime, — back in youngster year. The Academics came out to greet us with all the special little delights prepared for midship- men of the third class. We made the acquaint- ance of the Skinny department, and went through hours of puzzled boning while Sergeant Farad and Ampere Pete sprung the little child of their hearts on us, the mimeographed Skinny book. We couldn ' t read it to begin with, we couldn ' t understand it when we did read it, and we were expected to absorb all the essen- tials of the entire range of physics from its smeared pages. For the sake of future generations let us fondly hope that with that volume died another text " prepared especially for the use of midshipmen. " With Mech Pro came the usual outburst of clever (?) lines in the Log that are attributed yearly to the youngster, while Marine and Naval Boilers served as unpleasant reminder of the Engine, Aux- iliary, Electrical, and Boiler details of the cruise, all spent absorbing knowl- edge of the bucket and shovel in the bunkers of the Crab Fleet. But the last straw that broke several camels ' backs was the integration sign and all that went with it under the evil domination of Halitosis and his motley crew. Nav and Ordnance have done their part since, 268 Thermo was a horror, but heaven forbid that we have to take the first plunge again as we did that second term of youngster year. The year had its high spots and its low ones too, but in the course of time they have come to be blended into each other until in retrospect there is little else that the minds eye finds to specially recall. The great Game and Christmas leave came and went as Games and leaves are wont to do. There must have been some magic in the Christmas leave though, for there were more hearts lost m the short space of its four days than the _ long month of September had been able to chalk up. To a man the class came back in love, either worse than ever or again or for the first time. Even when two weeks had passed by there was still a ten- dency to gather in mournful knots and rem- inisce over that night on leave when she — , oh just the same old story. Lent came and finally went, the blackest part of the year with nothing in sight and nothing doing at the Academy. Even the roller skating, now but a memory, with the big kick at seeing your Steam Prof deposit him- self on the deck did not prevent the depression that always runs through the Regiment until the Easter hop proclaims that spring has come at last. June week found us greatly changed from the care free crowd we had been eight months ?

Annapolis in the lazy heat of late September. Maryland Avenue dozing in a motionless cloud of dust-covered leaves. Lethargic sleepiness broken suddenly by a patter of scurrying feet, the banging of worn suitcases against weary legs — the old familiar breathless dash through the old familiar gates across the well-known yard, resplendent now in the full flush of late summer verdure — the final sprint to the Batt. office — a frantic search for an elusive name " Big leave. Boy. ' " " You bet — gettin ' better every year! " " Well, see you later, Adios. " at the prospects of leave for the Penn State Game — and beneath it all we asked ourselves what the meaning of it all was. We plunged disinterestedly into the academic swim, striv- ing manfully to exhibit the proper amount of interest in all things " especially prepared for midshipmen " , and turned with huge sighs of relief to the week-ends of football games, hops, and Batt. Shows. All unexpectedly came November 11th, whereon we aban- doned toothbrushes and clean col- lars all along the frenzied 1 route to the outlying hamlet of our choice, be it Baltimore, Philadelphia or Washington. The next noon found a slight- ly exhausted but vociferous handful of us (queer how few of us there are in the first and second classes when ' - r Old Familiar Dash And so we took up the routine of our choos- ing. A routine which was not quite so irk- some as we had expected, thanks to the wave of expectant curiosity which engulfed us as soon as we realized that the New Order of Things was in power. The New Regime — what would it do — what was its policy to be? We looked at the length of the " entertainment program " — we gaped and whooped with glee compared to the ranks of plebes and youngsters) making an overly damp welkin ring to the accompaniment of a real gob band. And after the defeat, far from downhearted over the undefeatable spirit of Our Team, we entrained for the only home we know between October and May. A short interlude of books and drills, and the Thanksgiving Hop was on us — a day of scurrying around Maryland m auto- : R J ) Z Smoke Filled Car 270 5 l mobiles — another day of cheer practice, march- ing, and glove-washing — and we awoke to a starlit sky and a carefree march through un- willingly awakened Annapolis. Hours of enforced but cheerfully endured idleness in smoke-filled cars, and we were herded on to the ferrys to gape again at the shipping and sky-line of a rainy New York. The rest is to all of us a confused riot of hectic recollections — a slippery, skidding march through an open-mouthed populace, between the stiff salutmg ranks ot our friendly enemies — mud, music, stiff braces, and seas of people — the uncovered stands of plebe year — the teams — and a haze of cough-drops and thrills which did not end with the final whistle. A frantic rush to find the Drag — a jammed ele- vated, and the begin- ning of another but no less perfect haze which ... I , , was not of cough-drops. C j ' " V Home again — to a month of frenzied studying. Hair was combed, shoes were shined, and Navy lines unlimbered as never before in the awful ef- fort to attain the cov- li I j eted 2.6 which was the vk key to another chance at life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Eventually Der Tag dawned, and we re- versed the hectic race of three months pre- vious, full of hopes and plans for Christmas leave. That leave, like all other leaves, beggars description — to those who have had them there is no need h Pi Dragged Most Pulchritudi- nous Maidens Bu ■ied English of words, and to those who haven ' t, words are inadequate. All too soon we re- turned — tired and sleepy little boys who had had their cake and eaten it, too. And the consequence ot that re- markable feat kept our minds far afield, in the exalted places where Juice and Steam are not, and powder and lip sticks reign [supreme. ?L 3 r hi e }f, ' ell I _ . ■- ' 01 M -- A " ' ' ■ " " ■ ' cy ' 6 • Qsi Small I ' ocifcrous Handful Several of us, on the crest of the wave of happi- ness, defied the Semi-Anns., and ordered our Class Rings — and forthwith were plunged into the depths of a month of study such as only January and May can bring to midshipmen. One respite — we buried Eng- lish in a manner that gave joy to our hearts and drew forth the official censure of them on Olympus. Somehow we staggered through the Semi-Anns, to emerge Math-less and without English, but otherwise generally intact. The second term start- ed in a kaleidoscopic jum- ble of Ordnance, Nav, and hop-less Saturdays, but we bore them all cheerfully, and found the Washington ' s Birthday hop and leave in store for us, closely followed by the acme of hilarity — the Gymkhana. Gymkhanas are always good, but that one, being our own, indubitably took the cake for complete success. The memory of it lasted well into Lent, which gave us no roller skating, but did grant us the even more desirable privilege of afternoon informals and Navy League bazaars. When the last pile of snow hidden deep in the shadows behind the main entrance had melted, we, as others before us have since Noah was a plebe, turned joyfully from indoor sports to baseball, crew and Spring; excuses for wasted study hours increased enormously, as did the number of out-going letters, most of which bore the tell-tale prefix " Miss " — and when the Easter Hop arrived, we arrayed ourselves in all our raiment and dragged most pulchritudinous maidens, and danced by moon- light inside and froze by starlight outside — and came down to earth with a dull thud the Stare Fondly At Their Every Detail 271 w • «ir«r«r»r r( ar«r«ararar«r«r«r« a « ' «r« ' «r ' ' v«r«r« (i (trsr r« tr4 ( « « v» i Ml -J- ' f . Unmistakable following Tuesday when the May-pole went up. Yet even the dread horrors of the aca- demics could not phase the spring fever which ruled us, and we spent the spring between love- sickness and brawls over the soon-to-come Ring Dance. Eventually we slid into the accustomed daze preparatory to the Anns., and yet we could not quite gain the complete oblivion of former (i [ I t Melted Collars, Cool Lookijig Femme years; thoughts of a not-too-pleasant cruise, of the joys and woes of First-class life, of the Ring Dance, of our last undergraduate June Ball, would not be downed by such trifles as direct currents or dead reckonings. The only memorable incident of those Anns, is not of the Anns. — yet who will forget that last Dago exam., which we galloped through with ruth- less abandon to sit and fidget and put on our rings, only to take them off and stare fondly at their every detail.? And then — somehow we descended the Luce Hall Stairs and maneu- vered the double doors and rushed for the sea- wall, and then remembered and walked de- jectedly up to Mem. Hall to receive the Supe ' s last admonitory words as we shoved off for First Class Year. A short twenty minutes with only the recollections of " no fagging " — and away we tore, this time unrestrained, to the seawall and a hilarious two hours of un- mistakable christenings. 272 t Heat- -more Christenings Then June Week, drills, games, leaves, drills, hops — such a rapid succession! melted collars, cool-looking femmes heat — and the Ring Dance became a reality. Not one, no matter from what class he is, can gainsay the fact that we certainly did put over the peppiest hop in the history of the Naval Academy — it will live forever in the minds of all those present. And the next day came graduation — through which we and the plebes sat with widely varying emotions. But from our exalted state of First Class, we could afford to be beneficent — and forgave them their gilded luxury in a burst of generous pride. The June Ball came close on the heels of Graduation — a happy-go-lucky affair, tinc- tured a bit with the sobering realization that it was our last as midshipmen — and at two a. m., we crawled to our rooms and started to pack.

Cock of the Roost, King Coal on a Clean Shovel, Lord of Creation; all these combined with the Sultan of Turkey and the Grand Kleagle had nothing on the First Classman, — when we were looking up at him. But after we got there, it suddenly seemed as though being a first classman wasn ' t so very different from being a youngster, or a second classman after all. A tremendous lot of the First Class rates we had heard so much about failed to materialize. The Ancient Regime had plainly disappeared, and with it such conveniences as having the fourstriper yell " Squads Right " out the window at morning roll call and taking breakfast in bed brought up by a plebe. It was plainly a case of " them days is gone forever " , so we simply recognized it and thanked heaven that we did not have D. O ' s for squad leaders yet. After the first week of shaking down; always a miserable one in which the hang-over from leave has to be overcome and many read- justments made; things settled down nicely and the academic machinery began to move with greater smoothness than we had ever known. There was generally a more reg attitude throughout the regiment. The mustering P. O ' s hair did not get visibly gray- er every day, and formations looked less like a mob scene. Then too there were some small compensations that helped matters out. The 274 I fortunate ones used the galley exit from the mess hall to avoid the ten minute wait while the staff table lingered over their dessert; those of wavermg reli- gious tendencies tried all the church parties in turn until they found the preacher with the best sleeping voice; and the bridge hounds held their sessions com- paratively unmolested. The new systems of duty and stripers just inaugurated worked out as a benefit after we once got used to them. A change of class administration seemed to bring some improvements along the line of a less degree of resemblance between class meetings and a convention of the Sisters of I Will Arise. Altogether things seemed to be going very well and all hands were congratulating themselves on the suc- cessful beginning of a good year. In the midst of this Happy Valley the bomb- shell burst and we suddenly found ourselves struggling with a dragon in the form of sundry odd courts martial, apparent eternal damnation to the service, and the sword of Damocles all wrapped up in individual packages. At least that was how it looked to us for a while and our feelings sank like a plummet from the middle altitude to the profoundest depths. One awful week which was terminated by the Pennsylvania game marked the crisis. From then on faiths began to be restored and a healthy enthusiasm replaced morbid forebod- ings. The effects were a long time in wearing off however, and it was not until after the semi-anns that the question " Stayin ' in? " was largely answered bv " Darn right " instead of " Hell no! " " That Satnr Feeling of Yuongster Year " ' i J I il » j, M y. j» j ' j» j . y " r Events moved swiftly tioni then until the Army Game. After that adventure there is not a man, no matter with what carefree abandon he breaks mirrors and puts up um- brellas in the house, but will acknowledge that Philadelphia and our end of the Navy will not mix well. Not only the game itself but our subsequent difficulties seem to bear out the superstition. Except for a bad fifteen minutes while the Greylegs pulled off their celebration, we have not been able to bring ourselves to feel very badly about that game. It was anybody ' s battle and we have our own con- victions as to what the score really ought to be. However, it was no fun to watch an Army snake dance, even if it did not look like a very joyous affair, and all of us would have by far preferred an unbroken series of victories. Philadelphia is no place for an Army-Navy game as later events proved, and although we managed to celebrate the occasion fittingly it was some weeks before we heard the last of it. The month between the game and Christmas is a blank in the memories of all but the members of the P. A. list who tried everything up to and including a Ouija Board to deter mine the probability of getting leave. In the end the restricted number was mercifully small and we hied us away to forget what a turbine or an alternator looked like for ten blessed days. " Cock of the Roosi " - - ,v; „a - BT rT " ' Jl if i ' t( ' Till- Greylegs Celebrate " There followed another period of the after- leave hop, short this time for the semi-anns were looming too close, and also because most of the class were over the stage of returning from leave so love sick that they could do nothing but write letters and dream. They were either far gone and used to it or confirmed red mikes. Our old friend the flu made review month sort of a catch-as-catch-can proposition for many and " created grave doubts " in the minds of many as to the outcome of the period of trial. Somehow we staggered through with few casualties and found ourselves entering on the last turn of our course — one more river. Just about that time the strange meta- morphosis began. Even the most happy-go- lucky began to realize that his days of round- and-round with the officers were nearly over and that soon he would be one of those incom- prehensible beings himself. No one can tell when the change began in himself, it simply grew until we realized that we had ceased being three-quarter officers and were now seven-eights. Ordering uniforms helped to further the idea while it reduced our pocket books, until we really began to appreciate the extraordinary change in so many ideas that comes with the donning of the half-inch stripe. The new pay bill that would have meant so much to us roused hopes in the hearts of 275 everyone, particularly the love lorn whose visions of June wedd- ings brightened considerably. But it followed in the path of so many of our bright visions and left us with only the dead body to mourn over. The winter as a whole proved less tedious than those we had experienced before. There was more entertainment of a week- end, even if we did have to forego the keen pleasure of seeing one ' s special pet prof go on his ear in the Armory. The Masquer- aders outdid themselves and put on a show that surprised us all. The Log dramatic critic hit it exactly when he said that the lack of laughter during the love scene was highest praise. We quite forgot that the fair maiden normally wore the same sort of clothes that we did. There was one more jolt in store for some of us. It came without a whisper of forewarn- ing in the form of a Navy Department order requiring three years service after graduation. Those who had already decided on a naval career chuckled, but it was not so funny to the ones who had expected to follow in the footsteps of many of ' 22 and try battle with the cold, cold world. Most of us, however, decided that our diploma was too valuable an asset and went out to order our uniforms. A few resignations were tendered, but were V i ' hi Officer " returned with such consistency that it seemed as though the only sure way out were to in- troduce a wife to the D. O. A slight change in plans brought the permanent detail of stripers a month earlier than had been expected. A new method of assign- ing the coveted stripes was tried, based entirely on the revised grease mark system. The results showed that grease was still grease even if it were marked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the silence of wonderment around the bulletin boards where the final detail was posted was eloquent. After aston- ishment subsided there was some- thing to be said for it. The stripers had their stripes, and the I P. O ' s had the satisfaction of knowing that a large part of the best men of the class were num- bered among them. Easter leave brought a blessed respite for four days. We re- turned with the end almost in sight and the worst of our deci- sions made. We know what ships we were to go to and what leave to expect. The June brides to be were buying their trousseaus assured that all was well while their mids put in a last two months at trying to bone in spite of the united efforts of the band, spring weather and calm evenings to defeat their purpose. .)

On entering, it was the first department we came in contact with, in the shape ot a newly made but awe-inspiring ensign; and in leaving it is the last department to rehn- quish us with " bless you, my child " and documentary evidence of the special trust and confidence placed in us by the President. All through the four, or more, years of our existence as midshipmen, the watchful eye of the Executive Department is over us, and while it may cause us to appear with undue frequency in the morning society notes, still it is all for the good of our souls. The Commandant and his familiar spirits are like women, " we love ' em and we hate ' em, but we can ' t get along without ' em. " It is only once in a while that a D. O. appears to midshipmen as anything but an evil genius, and when he does, the realization that he is human after all comes as rather a surprise. Only a man philosophic beyond the average can put himself in the shoes of an harassed D. O. and realize what fool things we midshipmen try to get away with. And yet, when we get ragged every one of us raises a mighty growl about the D. O., never thinking that he did the same thing, got caught, and felt the same way when he wore diagonal stripes. Pounding Juice into wooden heads is fruit compared to trying to point out the error of his ways to a midshipman who is convinced the error is on the other side. D. O. ' s are only human and like others of the kind are liable to mistakes, but after all there are not many things completely wrong which survive the red tape road between company officer and commandant. It won ' t be very long before the aspect of our whole course will change, and among the funniest things ill appear those paps for the unauthorized use and sleeping in. _ j jmj%j%j9j9J j9j9 j9j9j9j% J9£ .

SOULE, Head of Department SEAMANSHIP is by far the most cramped, and in one way ineffectual, course at the Academy. It is not the fault of the Department itself, for noble efforts have been made to accommodate a rapidly expanding subject to a fixed amount ot time. The trouble lies in a general arrangement which assigns one short year to a subject which should by every right cover all four years of the course. Consider- ing the ground covered it is a wonder that we ever pass an examination at all. The word seamanship includes perhaps a third of the subjects studied. But we struggle along, thanking the powers that be for the omission of the traditional blinker. Seamanship also includes a series of drills designed to teach us a little about the practical end of the subject, being principally the weight of a cutter oar, and how not to wind the sail boats out of their moorings. It is all entertaining enough, especially when somebody holds on to the sheet too long and finds himself sitting on the water instead of on the deck. Sub-chasers proved a rather welcome diversion and furnished considerable excitement one afternoon when one caught fire and burned out the whole inside. The class in general appreciates the difficulties under which the Seamanship department works to a greater extent than perhaps the department itself realizes. Also, looking at it from the other end, the officers of the department as a whole realize that our powers of absorption are being hard pressed, and make correspond- ing allowances. For this reason we will leave with a general idea of what they have r- A . i-BT v, .ic onrl 11- lpQ«t a knnvvledpp of where to look for the answer to any «k A AAA At i ' s _-AAA ft ' fW f :f , i i.

NAVIGATION COMMANDER JOHN DOWNES, Head of Department NAVIGATION is perhaps the most " practical " subject we cover at the naval academy. To be sure, the subject is really covered in three months; from then on we are treated to an intense and prolonged review, but the fact remains that what is done in the classroom is exactly what is done in the chart house, so that it well behooves the wooden in Nav to bone up. A feature of Nav is the weekly exam. They try to conceal them under the name of P-works, but those who take them know better. The department takes an unfair advantage in having them on the top deck of Maury Hall. By the time a man carries a load of books, drawing instruments, and notebooks, aggregating in the neighborhood of twenty pounds, across to the academic group and up three flights of stairs he is pretty well exhausted before he ever begins. A look at the paper adds shock to exhaustion, so that the victim labors in a sort of mental haze and physical stupor which accounts for many a mistake. One special feature of Nav is the summer argument between the first class and the noon flag hoist. Somehow the two never seem to agree — at first. But when charts have to be made out of P-work note book paper, sights taken with a doubtful sextant, and worked squatting in a corner with Bowditch on lap, almanac on deck, pencil making frantic eftorts to escape, and many people stumbling over out- stretched feet, it is small wonder that the letters of commendation are few. How- ever, it makes for concentration which will perhaps be appreciated later. Certainly Navigation is nothing if not practical. 283 ' ur«r r«r»r( «r« a -«i ' «r«r«r«r«r rar«rar«r«r«r«r«r r«r«vi sr« ' «r«r«r«r«rcrkrcr«« i r«r«r«r«r«rtr«ra « ' rar Standing, Left To Right: E. S.

VAN AUKEN, Head of Department ORDNANCE was a little treat reserved for us until the middle of Second Class year. We made a swap of Math for Ordnance and found ourselves out of the frying pan into the fire. Math was just Math, but Ordnance was Math and other things too. Because of a dearth of home talent the department enlisted the aid of the Seamanship profs against us. Knowing little more about the " elastic stretch of gum " than we, they were forced to act more or less as referees in the famous navy game of " Try and Get It. " We did get it after brain cudgellings that left our heads sore, but even now the sight of a delta or the mysterious symbol " woof " produces a sickening sensation of helplessness. Ordnance is one of the departments in which agility in thumbing a log book is a first essential. It takes a good guesser to arrive at the proper method of finding how to blow up a gun; but when he has arrived his intuition avails him naught if he can ' t make Aunty Log and Cousine Alpha perform precisely as they had for the author of the gouge. The theory is that " it ' s all in the book, all you have to do is work it accurately, " but like all theories it has its flaws from our point of view at least. No matter what the work for the month has been in the section rooms, the exam is sure to produce some total strangers. However, with the frills trimmed away, Ordnance is one of the most useful departments, our future considered. Heaven help the ensign who faces a Ford board in the plotting room of a ship if he hasn ' t had some Small instruction first. And after all what ' s a battleship good for if it isn ' t to carry a load of guns around .

MARINE ENGINEERING AND NAVAL CONSTRUCTION COMMANDER HENRY G. S. WALLACE, Head of Department STEAM caught us young and treated us rough. At the very beginning of things. Even before Plebe summerwasoverwe began our first discoveries as to the smear- ing quahties of wet india ink, and all through that year even into half of youngster year we stood on aching legs while the wily tetrahedron flatly refused to intersect with the stubborn pentaprism. Sketches of plaster models indistinguishable in their crudeness, measurements of holes we couldn ' t reach, curves that tried even the flexibility of a reg collar in conforming to them, all became familiar spirits. Steam is a versatile department. Its ofiicial title, too long to say in one breath, includes much in its scope, but not so much as the section room. However, no one can deny but that he has at least a hazy idea of how the stuff works after four years of persistent departmental effort. ,- r The worst that can be said of the department is that they have a little habit of soothing the frenzied student in the section room and socking him in the exam from some totally unexpected angle. The cruise is supposed to furnish practical instruction in the various branches of Steam as convincingly outlined in the cruise schedule of instruction under the various ten-day detail headings of Engines, Auxiliaries, Electrical, and Boilers. Practically, it all amounts to a prolonged P-work in the last, so that while details of Steam may be missed, a thorough knowledge of how to keep the needle at 275 is firmly instilled. Boilers we do know something about. ■ Top Row, Left To Right: A. E. King, Jr., G. B. Keester, D. G. Howard, E. J. Engelke, G. D. Robinson, J. R. Allen, D. A. McElduff, W. |. Lorenz. Second Row: J. D.

COOK, Head of Department LIKE Babes in the Wood we ventured into the Wilderness of Skinny and Juice J at the beginning of Young ster year. Poor httle innocents, we had heard much of ergs and joules, some of us had even read the chase of the coulomb, but none of us had ever dreamed in our wildest nightmare of the awful maze into which we entered. After a term of trying to eliminate ourselves by chemical means in the lab we were confronted with the Horror of Horrors, that mimeographed Physics book. It couldn ' t be read, in the first place, and it couldn ' t be understood when it had been deciphered. How anyone stayed sat is an open question. The famous " Fish-Eye Camera Picture " is still a standing joke. After a year of being in a permanent hop from the moment we entered the building until the moment we left, the transition from Skinny to Juice was hardly any change. The sweet sounds of dit-da-dit-dit still greeted our bright morning faces and Bullhard Volumes I and II were nothing after our Physics " book " . We did manage to absorb a little juice in between times, enough to know that when the circuit breaker blows red hot something is wrong. The P-works kept us guessing. After the book said so it was annoying not to be able to get anywhere near the same result. It always took about two days to recover faith in electricity after one of those P-works. Radio pleased the Bed-time Story and Time Signal hounds until they found that the book didn ' t tell you anything much. After all it was the same case as our first chemistry had been. But in the end we emerged with a few ideas well bedded in our Harveyized craniums, and those who hit the electric-drives will offer praise to the great god Odin therefor. 289 • VMv-ar»r%r»rtr»rtr€r«r»r»rtrtr9r»rv r rnrv r rur%r First Row, Left To Right: P.

GARRISON, Head of Department MATH began for us like a great big Leader taking a Little Boy by the hand and leading him out into the mysteries of the multiplication tables. It was nice and gentle, and except for one or two officers, the prof knew something if you could prevail upon them to put out the information. We coasted along through Algebra and Solid and Trig with comparative ease. After all it was about what the last year of High School had to offer with a few variations in the way of Texts Specially Prepared for Midshipmen. When Youngster year came we began to realize that teacher was gone and a business like green volume entitled Differential and Integral Calculus was in his place which stood by with the little red book. Fast and furious flew the chalk, it wasn ' t a recitation unless your throat was dry and your shoulders white with dust. The outcome of the struggle was rather in favor of the department. With a weapon like Calc what chance had we poor wooden midshipmen.? The casualties were many after semi-anns. Stereo proved fruit for those with imaginative minds and an unending picture puzzle for all the rest. But the great stroke came at the last. Mechanics sounded easy. We all could run a monkey wrench. But those stress, them strain, that couples! Combined with the gentle art of ouija-boarding with a slip stick it was a demon term, and we buried the tall thin gentleman with the big nose and Adam ' s Apple, without the slightest sorrow. It was one subject gone, and what a subject! Back Row, Left To Right; Foster, R.B., Pease, R.S., Pratt, J. V., Sturdy, H. F., Merrick, R. S., Darden, W.A., Myers, F. I., Lewis, C. L.

ALPHONSO SMITH, Head of Department OUR introduction to the Department o f English was a pleasant one, taking as it did the form of an address by our well-beloved Professor Smith. If the entire course consisted solely in listening to him explaining in a manner compre- hensible even to the mind of a midshipman how simple such things as Montaigne ' s essays really are, we could not complain — but unfortunately it does not. The real battle started with the " Composition of Naval Officers " , followed closely by " Swipes from Great Literature " and " What Literature Did to Me. " We admit it is literature, but the dose was rather hard to swallow. To this day there is not a man in the class but will smile when you mention " Sweetness and Light " . It seemed to us that the emphasis rested on the last word of the title. All of Youngster year we pursued the flying enemy through the great naval battle of history. Poor Nelson, rest his soul, we followed through three battles and a couple of love affairs, the latter probably claiming the greater share of our attention. Then came the alarming discovery that our own revered Admiral Mahan was a back number, a mere dabbler in the great truths of strategy. He would never have made even a bad third to the great and powerful minds of the English Depart- ment, which see through the intricacies of any situation at a glance. As the day of the decease of English drew near there was much furbishing up of gold lace, bath robe cords, spectacles, and stray alarm clocks. Mutterings from the depths were heard, but like him who lives at the foot of a volcano we gave no heed. Our ceremonial robes for the dear departed were indeed gorgeous. The Siamese navy would have expired from envy had they beheld us. There was not a waver in a single hair part, not a brow but was furrowed with sorrow. But the ghost walked, and proved itself to be made of more than thin air. The final result was a hopless month and a certain soreness that disappeared but slowly. 293 3rtrfrvtr»r»rtrtrtr r»rvr »rtrtr%r9rvr»rur%f»r rv»rfrtrtr»rvtrtr Ftt « ' 4r« v«rT«r»y«r«y -«r«r«r«r«y«yiiyr«rtr«ytr«rtr4rcF ' C Top Row, Left To Right: J.

Even in the days of our new-ness we felt the effects of the great division, for on entering we were bidden to choose, and the sheep were separated from the goats, the Spigs from the Frogs. Which were the goats is a question never settled, for both sides have hotly contended that their particular form of lingual torment was the most obnoxious. Dago looks innocent enough on the surface, quite funny at times, in fact, but the humor was reversed when numerous classmates found themselves out in the cold, dark world with nothing but a few Spanish idioms as the cause of it all. Anyone who should suggest having Dago P-works would be hooted down in an instant, but the same hooters have put in some painful hours trying to convince some dark eyed senorita that the garden is much nicer than the ball room, or in holding a heated debate with the cochero of a carmelita on the subject of foreign exchange. The Frogs got in their innings at Martinique and in Lisbon, where they ought to speak Spanish, but won ' t if they can help it. The preponderance of effort lies with the Spigs, however, and " dime un cigarillo ' is a familiar phrase in Bancroft Hall. , • , rr It was with much joy among the wooden that the news of the burial of Dago at the end of Second Class year was received. First class Dago never amounted to anything but a bi-weekly nuisance, but we were glad to be rid of it. The last " recitation " of the course found us at the receiving end of the reciting. The Head of the Department decided to tell us what we had been trying to do, and was successful to such a degree that we left the Auditorium with a kindly feeling toward the Department in general and its head in particular. " All ' s well that ends well " is very true. I IM H First Row: S. O. Claytor, W. Rehrauer, A. L. Burleigh, A. B. Kalen, S. W. Dolglass. Second Row: E. B. Taylor, J. T. Stringer, F. A. Hughes, F. E.

CARPENTER, Head of Department HYGIENE is perhaps the briefest and most painless course in the curriculum, consisting as it does of some fourteen odd lectures on Friday nights, half of which are movies. However, there is a catch in everything, and the joker in the Bones lies in the semi-ann in hygiene, which terminates our crossing of the next to the last river. The staff of the Bones department is a small one, consisting of Doctor Taylor as head and chief lecturer, being assisted only by Skelly and Dummy, who mutely demonstrate some of the fundamentals of human construction. The movies are quite an attraction. We feel quite intimate with Messrs. Amoeba and Streptococcus, having witnessed their family life spread across ten feet of screen. To be sure, some of the animated cartoons were not quite up to the mark. One evening we thought we would go crazy if any more C ' s and O ' s and H ' s and triangles chased themselves around in our field of vision. One special feature film was long anticipated and received with great enthusiasm. The impression it made was quite marked and has lasted for a remarkable length of time. All told, we learned what our heads were supposed to hold; the difference between heart action and a duplex air pump; what to do in case of fainting, hammer toes, pneumonia, dizziness, and falling hair; and why bootleg likker gives one colley-wobbles. Taken as a whole, the course wasn ' t bad at all, and a little frantic last minute reading of the book served to give us enough assorted information to get by the exam. If only they were all like that! 297 i.« y V . .« • I ft . . ifrtrV9r»rfrar»rurtrtrtrmrtrtr»rurtrtrVt)rv»r»r»rvr» ' V»rii ' trtr»r9rirtrtrirtrtr trtrtrtr fiff tr ■ yvv. .. v ..i.v. -v.v. Abdili., E.

HERE is found in France an organization, unique in the charac- ter of its members and in its traditions, called the Foreign Legion, — that heroic regiment composed of men from every walk 6f life, nobles and nobodies, minis- ters and millionaires. Any one who had the opportunity to look down upon the class of 1924, and watch it grow almost overnight into the second largest that ever entered, then watch it slowly shrink as the dif- ferent hazards of Academy life took their toll, must have been struck with the analogy between the aforemen- tioned body of men and the class of 1924. Called from every walk of life, from the rock-ribbed coast of Maine to the sun-parched mesas of Arizona, we were to be duly sworn in, and who can forget the thrill of that moment when we __ became " officers and gentlemen in a ' ■€ii win u — L=i MM8PtSi Mi ii ' i ' I J e ' V ' J i qualified sense . " . , , Plebe summer started with its usual .i( ' 35 f»i2 ' ) 2lX, drills, " shots " and newly-made " D. O. ' s " who, perhaps more than any one else, will appreciate the analogy between the two organizations. According to several outspoken ensigns, we were indeed the riff-raff of the earth. Be that as it may, we showed the early moculation of plenty of the good old Navy spirit when the news was flashed over that Navy had won the cham- pionship of the world in rowing. A few didn ' t know a crew shell from an egg-shell and thought a " sweep " to be just what it implied; but we yelled and snake-danced and enjoyed ourselves withal. Plebe summer continued to simmer and bits of news commenced to trickle in. Headlines: " ' Middies ' Enjoy Hula Dances in Honolulu. " " ' Middies ' Entertained in Seattle. " " ' Middies ' See Hollytvood from the Inside. " How we envied the fortunate ones and, as the time for their return drew near, how we shivered in mortal dread. Cans ' t remember the night long watches in the new wings ? Columbus ' lookout never had a thing on the little plebe who joyfully turned us all out, on the third night of watching, to see those little lights gleaming far out on the Bay. . Then dawn, and a sea-weary mob, dashing against the sea wall, overflowing into the Yard and slowly trickling out the gates, headed north, east, south and west. In fancy we jumped ahead a year and imagined ourselves landing after a three-months ' cruise around the world with the Crab Fleet. L . 1 • The upper classes were gone but not forgotten and too soon, much too soon, were they back again. Moving day for us, with service too large, service too small, service that fit most any way at all. New faces, new tables and new customs — " Mr. Gillucky, your fork is not an ornament; use it occasionally. Also, what is the d— sert?— Chocolate eclairs.? ! !— Ye gods and little dolphins, get under and stay under! " For the first few days, we went around in quite a bit of a hop, but things gradually cleared and commenced to take on fj. l familiar shapes. A little, red-covered book forced itself un- { ' _ M -I I ,B, pleasantly upon our notice, along with divers other things. But just when we were learning enough to bother our " spoons " and to fake stoopfalls, a large spike was tossed into the machinery and " moving day " again. After moving our own effects, a willing (.?) hand was lent to the others. " Here, Mister, take these up to 3464 and after that, move my roommate ' s gear. He ' s in the hospital. " " Aye, aye, sir. " (Cheerfully.) Life drifted sweetly on for a while, ' cause " plebes " were 2 p. o. ' s and stripers too. But a general sigh of relief went up when " Old Home Week " was announced, and we all ' rlp n iv«« ?,comts U ' tAiV 303 j» J» »J»J» J J J y »J» fL —f wooO ' t The Foreign Legion moved back in time to give a united 4-N for the team before they shoved off for the Polo Grounds. Who has forgotten or ever will forget an Army game? A few, a very few, might have spent that evening in New York visiting the Aquarium and the Public Library, but the majority set about collecting choice titbits of experience to enliven their " Memoirs " . Some of them zL ' ere " choice " ! " Home " again, with a firm conviction to make Pete McKee President of these United States. We compromised, however, and made him our own; and he was much too good to lose. Athletics and the semi-anns next engaged our attention. Some made good in athletics and not in the semi-anns, others, vice versa. Those that bilged left us with a good-bye and a feeling that even their six short months had not been wasted. Those long dreary months until June Week dragged slowly past and we awoke one night to hear the soothing sound of running water trickling out of a fourth deck shower and a rough voice command, " Hop in and be washed of your sins, you vice-ridden plebe! " We hopped, we washed and we cursed. But at last the day of " days arrived, — views of Harding, views of femmes, views of heaven so soon to be. One last command, " Brace up ! " Then a wild dash for Lover ' s Lane, freedom, emancipation, call it what you will! The slaves of old had nothing on us. A 4-N for everybody and " Tain ' t no mo ' plebes! " Just a day to rate the world and we shoved oflF for our first cruise. Many of us had never set foot aboard a battle-wagon and couldn ' t tell a side-boy from a slice-bar. Above decks wasn ' t so bad, but can you remember trying to re-locate the scuttle-butt and finally, by carefully following directions, ending up in the steering engine room? One could easily appreciate the subtle meaning of the phrase, " lost at sea " . By the time we reached Norway ' s fjords, we had everything solved and knew just where the best caulking places were. Norway was superb, Portugal was wonderful, Gibraltar was good, while Guantanamo was, and always willbe, just Guantanamo. Still, it gave us a chance to claim that we had been to Cuba. Leaving Guantanamo, we made the usual rough trip up the coast and one day dropped the old mud- hook just where we had picked it up three months ' previous. Now was our chance to make our dreams of the year before come true, - - - % C y i ' G and each one of us in his ■ H . - own way did his best.

Stead and regale the natives with some of the aforementioned choice bits of personal experi- ence! We lived for the present, but September sped by and left us again just where we had started, but with a whole year to look back upon and a new shiny stripe upon which to gaze. As Youngsters, we felt generally that upon our shoulders rested the future of the Navy, and many were the mistakes we made and many were the rows ere that idea was banished. At times, we thought the Nav} ' was headed for hell and, at other times, we knew it was, but to our surprise and relief it managed to survive and function as usual. Youngster year served to bring us a little more clearly and a trifle more favorably into the spotlight. " Little Steve " blazed his way to a niche in the Hall of Fame and ' 24 did its share to keep the wheels going round. The " riled youngster " situation gradually settled and cleared, we lost some more from " The Legion " but those left were only bound together with a more unified spirit. June Week and Second Class cruise to the West Indies are old stories to us, but stories we shall never tire of hearing. A little more re- sponsibility and a little more liberty, for we were Second Classmen. The additional gold stripe didn ' t carry with it the same thrill as the first but ' twas nevertheless just as greatly appreciated. September flew by again, but, being old hands at the game, we knew how to make the very most of it. Every minute was made to yield something, and " caulking periods " were rele- gated to the future. Second Class year proved early to be a year for adaptability. You either accepted new conditions and made the best of them, or suf- fered. Luckily, most of us proved to be regular chameleons when it came to changing ourselves to conform with new conditions. New subjects that savored of the " Service " impressed upon us that at last we were studying to be naval officers. The why and the where- fore of lots of things became more clear. We discovered as Second Class year went by, that we were, in a small way, part of the " Service " , and felt in our hearts a little proud to be a part. Election of a new class president for the com- ing year next occupied our minds. " Pete " ' i l !np, ■ J? ' ' Eyes Right " - The Brutes (According lo the News-papers decided that he had borne the cares of state too long and did not enter into the campaign. Mills and Harris were the logical candidates, but the former won by a good majority. As the year went by and different difficulties arose, we realized that our choice had been wise. Even Uncle Henry complimented us on the ability we had of picking good presidents. The conglomerate mixture that was likened to the " Foreign Legion " simmered and settled under the refining influences of Academy life and after three years we feel willing and able to carry on when ' 23 bids us a farewell and says, " Twenty-Four, take charge. " May we profit by their mistakes, and forget, as they did, petty, selfish aims " for the good of the Service. " 305 Wtt j , v Baines, G. W. Banks, J. O., Jr. Barnhart, F. C. Bataga, E. M. Beard, D.

Youngsters When you see one of those Naval Academy inmates with his left arm swung out in full view, his left shoulder slightly lowered from the increased weight of that one diag, you can mark him as one of the carefree; he ' s a Youngster. Salty! Why, he imagines himself covered with brine from several trips around the Horn. He tries to add to this imaginary brininess by adorning himself with all the nonreg articles obtainable; he is without responsibility, so he just naturally takes the plebes into custody, sometimes to his own regret but mostly to the Plebe ' s. He sustains none of the weight of ye goode olde Bancroft Hall. His, is only to secure another diag and be happy. With this felicitous attitude he began the academic year. At first it was to his disgust that he found that the once looked on as a carefree life of a Youngster did not hold within its realm all the wondrous privileges of existence that Plebe year had taught him to imagine. He looks back upon his own Plebe year, so different from this Plebe year, and naturally says, " Now, when I was a Plebe ! " He always begins the academic year with that which is considered by many as a handi- cap, the sweet memories of his romances which are many and varied. He has either fallen for the winsomeness of some fair damsel in Panama or Halifax and im- mediately begins forming plans to spend his Christmas leave in Halifax, or tries to figure the chance and probability of a cruise to Panama next year. Few, if any, do not succumb to the charms of some flapper either on the cruise or on Sep leave. The latter being the most irritating of the species, for no radiator bull fest is com- pleted without the whole gang learning the charming characteristics of a certain Helen of Troy that only a Youngster can imagine. Consequently, when he encounters the foul-mouthed dragon. Skinny, which envelops him with its chemical fires, and the dreaded ogre. Calculus, he applies Skinny to the famous quotation, " It is beyond the scope of this text, " and begins to integrate some fair femme between the definite integrals of life and love. No won- der he immediately becomes a snake, because of his previous Red Mike year. It is his one motive to show the other upper classes that they don ' t drag all the good- looking femmes. Faint recollections of the cruise, a night at Kelly ' s, or Northwest Arm saturates his mind, and he immediately wishes to spread the dope about a midwinter cruise " on account of the heat, especially if he was on the black gang while in the tropics. He is the original dope hound, not meaning the kind of dope retrieving the meaning of anything. 309 t- " i!((t y- If some fair femme has not distracted his mind from the straight and narrow path of academics, he begins to plan how to press the joy of a whole year in one night and this he generally does on the eve following the Army-Navy game. That night is one of the biggest in his entire career as a Youngster. He generally does everything from relieving the traffic cop — to proclaiming himself one of the grand- est opera singers on the circuit. Then he has only three weeks to come from the influence of that night with all its cocktails and bewitching femmes and to plan a happy Christmas leave with his folks and the O. A. O. At the same time he begins to work for that 2.6 that will prevent his name from appearing on the Christmas tree. This tree does not bear the fruits of Christmas leave, nor velvet for the semi-anns. Distracted by femmes, joyrides, parties, everything known to a Youngster on his Christmas leave, he returns as a paroled prisoner to withstand his third reckon- ing with the academic department. If he has succeeded in erasing all the Stars opposite his name upon the M. C. ' s desk of these departments, or if he has kept them from sending the trees to press with his name on them, he may not succumb to their treachery. Between all these joy-bringing happenings, he has besides the academic care, a few tete-a-tetes with the two most charming yard engines of the Academy, Obedi- ence and Fidelity. The former has such alluring charms that she even leads you to do everything that you are told, while the latter leads you to trust the most be- guiling. The sooner he learns that too lengthy flirtations with these two crabs entitles him to a week-end cruise on the Reina and the privilege (if it may be called 1ID6HIPM IN OOFCS FOURTH CUA55 VVELL,WELL IMR.

Four days, he vows he will sleep every one of them, but when Easter rolls around he may sleep from nine to ten in the morning, but we doubt it. Again, he tries to live a lifetime in four days. Wash- ington, Baltimore, New York, Philadel- phia are not unknown of the places that - he invariably seeks this pleasure. At this time the effect of Spring is wonderful, again he finds a passing fancy and then — Oh! if radiators could tell tales many fair femmes would blush at the flattery. Then comes the final drive, the anns; with two months for velvet, but old King Spring-Fever attacks the victims and drives them into the Just-Get-By-World. This fourth reckoning with the academic department pays for liberties in foreign lands. A Youngster comes onto the final great privilege that has been denied him in the past. This is dragging for a whole week. Elinor Glyn writes, " Seven perfect days make a heavenly week. " What could be more heavenly than seven perfect days to coo into her ear everything from living on an Ensign ' s pay to adorning the Supe ' s residence! Why not? He rates his miniature now. Tempis fugit. After all, this year with its hardships, its pleasures, has made us feel as we are a component part a cog in a great machine. That upon us as well as the ranking Admiral lies the responsibility of the efficiency of the Service. As it begins to become the past, it makes us look upon it with tender feelings. We mourn the loss of members of our class by resignations and by the call of the Almighty. It has been a pleasure to be under the guiding influence of ' 23 and we look for- ward to the time when we shall be junior brothers in the Service with them. 7 I. { ( ' y 311 - ' rxP i " ,■ Abel, A.

D. Class History The echoes of June Week had scarce died away when, about the middle of June, there assembled outside the gate a weird aggregation of cits from all P rts of the country, — the men who were destined to become the Class of ' 26. Nor had we long to wait, for that some day we performed our initiatory rites, signed numerous dotted lines, were examined in sundry parts by divers doctors, drew our outhts, and after the first sleepless night on a reg mattress, emerged m our natty white works to give the Navy and each other the once over. At first, everyone appeared lost and was full of meekness and questions, but under the able tuition of numerous D. O. ' s, this soon wore off, and we learned niany things. A regimental organization was instituted with former Boy Scouts and High School Kaydets— as stripers— and we settled down to have the time ot our lives. Plebe Summer had hardly gotten under way when we got our first taste of that indefinable, intangible, yet very real thing— Navy Spirit. When the crew won their race at Poughkeepsie we naturally wanted to celebrate, Navy tashion, so get- ting dope from our D. O. ' s we gave our first four-N, and performed our first snake dance over to hear the Supe say a few words on the occasion. In the main part, though, our days were routine— we doped out the less intricate parts of infantry, ordnance, and seamanship drills and got on speaking terms with the more prominent things in the Academy life, including extra duty and the pap sheet. Some qualified in marksmanship on the range (some used their pencils) and some became qualified boathandlers and explored all the creeks nearby. 315 mrtrvtr »r»rtrtrtrmrvtr r tr r irtrvrvr»rvrtrir rvi artrtrtnr%ir »rtr»r »f%r vrtr r rvtnr ' ' 9rwu»l m J j m JVc Were Examined by Dhers Doctors Our nights were far dififerent, for then met and flourished many strange and deadly societies (The Mid-Night Raiders) which made Hfe and sleep hard for the D. O. ' s. In fact, the disturbance became so, great that when the entire Second Batt were ignobly ejected from their downy couches at 3 A. M., by the roughneck Fourth, night watches were instituted and many of us lost sleep as midnight M. C. ' s. in a grand sham battle all over the golf course — our Plebe Summer came to an end. Ac year, and our first real contact with boning, soon rolled on, and after numerous afternoon cheering practises we journeyed to Philly to experience for the first time the great thrill of an Army- Navy game. Despite the outcome most of us enjoyed the next few hours. Then soon came ten days ' Christmas leave, and 9. Or r: i. ? ' THC ATTLC Of THe GOLf LINKS Time passed like a dream and before we knew it. Labor Day rolled around bringing a day ' s leave to the First Batt., which had won most points in athletics, and to the songbirds of the Second Batt whose melodious rendition of " Anchors Aweigh " easily convinced the judges that the Academy would be better ofi without them, if only for a day. September came, with our first taste of Steam and Dago, and soon — after a last glorious month of fun, culminating The Seeoiiil Bait Was Ignobly Ejected nearly all stepped out to give the folks a treat. On this leave, we first really realized the full advantages of our posi- tion, and we all returned with a keener conception of our privileges and respon- sibilities. A month of boning, and then came the semi-anns, where despite Tecum- seh, rabbits-feet, boning and horseshoes we lost and some 180 of us left our midst by request, leaving the remainder to wonder and struggle on to the anns and beyond. ; Home jar Christmas Inspection 316 ur r«r«r»-«r»-» » rT y«r«rT»rT«r r«r«r The PrrscnUili ' T. - ' ' (, ' C " hn- We have often wondered whether it is the midshipmen or the girls who look forward to June Week most. The former live a fervent life, with hops, drills, dress parades, and mad dashmgs from one formation to the next. The latter admire, and exclaim, and look sweet, cool, and pretty. But they also dance themselves to exhaustion every night, and live in many cases most uncomfortably in town. On the whole, however, it is a period of pleasure and amusement for every one, especially for the fond parents whose sons are graduating or moving up a notch on the very long ladder. No matter how warm the weather, there is always a spell of romance hangmg over the ard. The band plays evenings to a clustering audience of mids, girls, and parents. There is usually a moon, exerting even more than the usual effect upon young hearts. Shadows are kmdly and welcom- ing. Class pins and miniatures are much in evidence, and the Chaplain launches several mat- rimonial craft the afternoon of graduation day. Starting with the baptism of the second class and the acquisition ot their class rings, events follow thick and fast. " No More Rivers " for the first class, the Snake Dance, the cheers for " those we leave behind us " , and— the first classmen ' s private bath in the salty Severn. Then exhibition drills, nightly hops, and the dress parades, very beautiful to look upon, but most uncomfortable to participate in. i i ,-i • j j u The end of the whirl is, of course, graduation, preceded last year by the 2j ring dance and the ' 22 German. That ring dance deserves many more words of praise than space allows here. Its decorations were marvelous, its music unutterably seductive— in other words, a " knockout, " thanks to George Castera and his committee. , , • • , Then graduation, the June Ball— the usual mass of color and people— and the inevitable anti- climax of the departure for the cruise, punctuated by tears and misgivings and cheers " for those we leave behind us.

Once a crab, always a crab, from generation to generation, and evermore. We sailed down to the sea in crabs. The " Mis- ery " and the " Whiskey " were no more, hyfi the " No Hope " rose to glory, f ' ' We went to sea, and the sea rose up to meet us. The heavens poured forth their blessings, and with a liquid greeting another aggregation of gentleman sailors were introduced -to J ways of the Navy. Seven days of rain, broken infrequently by the burning rays of the sun — seven days of stifling heat below decks — seven days of coal, fire, and clinkers and we hove in sight of land. Iliu- TOns were dispelled, sea legs were found, the ways of the Navy were learned. I iiS 321 SIX ships arrived safely, and Panama stood by for inspection. It was surely a remarkable city with its turbulent, carefree ways. It onored us with a bull-fight — gory, ut without thrills. We bought silks and headaches. The Y. M. C. A Casey ' s, and the government restau- rants made a wonderful impression. We had hardly become reconciled to a full grown meal for forty cents when we once more cast off the lines and set out for parts unknown. Eighteen days on a Crab ! Eight- een days toward the western hor- ;izpn, up before sunrise and up after . sunset, and the sun beat us to it eV y day. Rain squalls came down upon us at inopportune moments; -— the boilers demanded more coal; the — sea leaked through the evaps into the ibuttlebutt; the ice machines demanded]. steam and produced no ice; — and yet the miles crept slowly by. At last dim cloudlike shadows loomed out of the sunset, and the next morning the rough outlines of Diamond Head shone forth, guide us in. ' The reception was complete. The city was alive to our coming — leis of red and yellow flowers were drop- ped out of the sky from Army and Nav laii gj aad the jieop Vi ' J the s with open arms. Such was our introduction to Honolulu. Hawai- ian hospitality is a thing we can ntver forget. We were taken to the Pali, to the Punch Bowl, to Halewa, to Maunalua. We wejte told the old stories of the South Sea Isles, and in lexchange we told what we f the familiar places and things ck in the States. We danced to wonderful music of Hawaiian orchestras, and we all went swimming. Waikiki became a fascinating real- ity, even though we did find the coral reefs under the surf. We were jeted, petted, and spoiled, and wheiT y- tast we had regretfully to leave, earned thejBj iie meaning of )ha Oe. For nine long j _uito the northeast, and when at f last we steamed to our anchorage ground in Elliot Bay every one breathed a sigh of relief at seeing civilization once more. First im- . X pressions were not reassuring.

Z Auto rides, femmes, suppers, hops, and unreserved kindnesses were liter- ally thrust upon us by our new-made friends, and it is not too much to say that the Seattle entertainment -- ' ,- was the high water mark of the cruise. ru One beautiful morning we had ,to leave. A general air of preoccjtlfa- tion was apparent to the clo j b- server.

W aew PA preseritea no urrasuar asp jecture as we might, we could find o visible proof of startling and unique experiences in store. Once ashore, we went our separate ways in quest of adventure and entertain- ment. Relatives became much in evidence, and it is rumored that many law-abiding Californians, myth- ical and otherwise, suddenly be- came possessed of midshipmen sons and brothers in order that ye sea- faring gentry might obtain much desired " forty-eights " . After our fill of waffles. Golden Gate Park, the Saint P ancis, Chinatown, Alam- a,, coal, and ship ' s stores, we turned ; ljTiore seaward. IDB Ii Again under the persuasiorr ttF slice bars, shovels, and profanity, the armada steamed slowly south- ! ward through gray misty seas to warrner climes. I j i Southern California is a sunnf " ' land of oranges, palms, bathing il beaches, automobiles, and moving - - " p icture studios, where relatives tor all hands may be had upon applica- tion. This last characteristic was of particular importance to ourselves, as it gave rise to some highly agree- ile extended liberties. In view of our prospective departure for the CanaT, the ' Atlantic and points be- yond, we made the most of our brief stay. The mysteries of __m ie " hfe in Hollywood were -ruthlessly exposed to the cruel and Unabashed gaze of youthful marJBets,!;-. who found the inhabitants ' veryL vc human and very likeable people. We tried swimming at Long Beach, riding, dancing, and individual coal- , ' ing with civilized cho v — whether f in Pasadena, San Diego, or El Puebloj de la Reina de Los Angeles itself. Adventurous individuals with more money than conscience barkened to the call of the wild and even took a flying fling at Tia Juana. j ) But that " Sep leave " feeling was becoming more insistent, finally driving us to depart. The trip to Panama deserves no mention — it rates no praise. In harrowing scenes it was below average, and we even missed a waterspout by fully ten miles. After a series of sweltering, sleepy days we entered the Gulf of Panama and counted the landmarks ,s we passed until at last Fort Ama- dor was left behind. Once at the old berth we struck boldly out for the familiar haunts and blew in our few remaining shekels on Govern- ment restaurant chow and Spanish- Am erican jcefxeshment s . l -l«k Back again through the canal i the Caribbean, we proceeded t make knots through the roughest seas of the entire cruise. .The sum- mons to Sep leave roared in our ears — vividly we saw ourselves climb- ing aboard that Pennsy train. Some f the ifoys even began to pack up. itefand faster the old cra;bs forged ■ ahead; eleven, twelve, then thirteen knots. Rumors spread of early dis- embarkation — the cruise was, over, we were going home. y j ' Alas! The tale is not told! At four o ' clock one cool sunny afternoon. ith a rattle and a sickening jar the ' Conny " lost a propeller. After vo hours of anxious waiting she got jTnder way again, speed eleven knots, trying to keep up on her one remain- ing screw. Next morning that was rendered useless by the breaking of the shaft. Now I ask you :— Stalled on the bosom of the deep blue sea! Two hundred miles south of Cuba, and drifting further away every hour as the No Hope stood by to make fast a tow-line. Nine hours __ f patient toil and unabated cussing, yet not one mile nearer home. Event- ually we were under way, crawling at a snail ' s pace toward that Mecca of former cruises — Guantanamo Ba 9 iR Two days behind schedule, we watched the flying fish playfully frolicking under our bows, while the ripples slapped in measured beats against the sides. Arriving outside he Bay late in the afternoon several pns of years later, we anchored and spent the rest T)f the day profit- ably in watching the sharks eat ott — meat long since retired, now buried. The next morning found us several miles on our way home. Our speed was all that forced draft and the sweat of our brows could make it. It was a case of " Home boys, home. " When the run was over, and the old crabs were steaming slowly up the Chesapeake, we stood watches over the hammocks and bags and talked over the cruise. As the long night hours wore away we came to the conclusion that it hadn ' t been such a bad little cruise after al Seventeen thousand miles of vim, and vitalit) ' brought us friends any places. For snakes and Red Mikes alike, Kapiolani Park, Seattle, Frisco, Hollywood, and San Diego, brought interesting memories. Even Panama had captured its toll of friends, and Kelly ' s place wil long be remembered. Yes, it wasn ' t a bad little cruise, a p ' ' JA - ' . »■■ ' •.? ' JiT ' - ' t Youngster cruise is one of anticipa- tion; First Class cruise of emancipa- tion; but Second Class cruise — dam- nation. We were damned from the minute we started from our room with a hammock enclosing our bedding, a suitcase, two laundry bags, and a bucket, to fall in for muster. Being of the " Bourgeoisie, " we looked over the " populace " below and the " aris- tocracy " above, and at that moment we put each man in our squad in one of two categories — sat or unsat in our own estimation. In minutes all too few we were under way. When we shoved off from the sea wall, those who had gained consciousness and breath af- ter their forced march to the boats gave a big " 4-N " for those fondly waving farewell. Some of us, when we stepped over the side, rushed below in search of lockers and desir- able billets, but others were more 0] worthy and helped bring aboard our gear. The moments of disappoint- ment that followed when we found that our locker was the bottom one and accessible only by assuming the position of stoopfalling, when we found our billets right in the passage- way, when we found our mess just over a bunker plate sending forth hot air and coal dust, and when we found our suitcase compartment four decks below, with an assigned capac- ity of 100 suitcases and capable of accommodating one man comfortably — Sl| these things are too vivid in ouriliinds to describe again. Yet there is no doubt but that the sea makes one forget a lot of one ' s troubles, and from the moment we got under way the second class be- came a happier lot. After passing the Capes we steamed along tor twelve days before we sighted our first land, the Azores. They looked fertile and inviting, but we were content to see them only from the decks. The next bit of land was most unattractive, and while passing Ireland and Scotland we heard very few claiming these barj jii hores as the home of their ancestors There was a terrific current going through Pentland Firth. Those on the " Con- nie " will probably not soon forget x " their narrow escape from running on the rocks in the fog. Yet even this excitement displaced only for a itv __ minutes the dope on Christiania, for after steaming for eighteen days, we were nearing our destination. The first impression of Norway, as we passed up the beautiful fjords, was pleasant. Even the refusal of liberty the first day anchored did not sub- due our ent husiasm. It increased as we stood on deck and watched the,,, y " Norse tack and wear their spotless : sails as true sailor|gfj| j J _ ' _ Liberty was delayed only one day, and then the ships became the scene of much rushing, jostling, and wail- ing, as only the excitement of one ' s first cruise liberty can bring about. A different atmosphere greeted us ashore. Christiania was neat, or- derly, and busy but not hurried. We, however, were in a hurry to see the city. In a very few minutes -- ' " «w " » w«apww»«p " fS ' i- up Karl Tohan- groups were hastening up Karl Jc nes Gade bound for Droningen, Hol- menkollen, the Grand, and the Bris- tol. Within an hour many were_II trying to chat with girl acquaintances; ! a mighty hard job since each spoke a ._ different language. They were healthy, stocky girls for the most part, who were good to look at ex- cept when they laughed. Those for whom the flaxen haired had no lure enjoyed wonderful dinners at the Bristol and the Grand. They were not at all embarrassed because it was necessary to consult with the manager before water could be ob- tained for drinking purposes. After dinner the ride to Holmenkollen above beautiful fjords and valleys proved exhilarating tonic for the salty young tars. No less impressive was the Inn, where one was not only mentally but physically atop of the world. What a magnificent " be- wooded, befjorded " world it was. In all too short a time we were forced to leave it all and wend our way ship- ■I " jHiiiP - happy " iltipreSsion iiici ' eased. The snakes met the girls and their fami- lies a nd found them kind and hospi- " table. The " bloods " danced wit! the Queen at the British Ambassa- dor ' s party, for which our own peer- less jazz band played. The " chow " hounds went to Olson ' s, where two dinners could be had at the expense of one by visiting the big, inviting table in the center, laden with cold chickeh, duck, and such viands as only {these epicureans could fully appreciate. Then those otherwise inclined went back to the Bristol and to Holmenkollen. There was pleasure for each man ' s taste, and at the end of the two weeks we were all sorry to see trim, tidy Christiania fade in the distance. Seven days of sea routine followed, and we were steaming up the Tagus to our next port, Lisbon. As the first liberty party stepped ashore some horrible sights greeted it. The city, dirty and disorderly, was too great a contrast to our last port; it was too filthy to be enjoyable. Very -Jew .j)f us met nvone. And fewej F N still encountered such winsome girls as we had encountered in Christiania. Only these to whom I have previous- ly referred as " otherwise inclined " enjoyed the city, and for them Gai ' - retts proved a trysting place. There were, however, the trip to Cintra, the pickled kings, and the bull-fight . (at which all the midshipmen pres- ent cheered for the bull), to giveli us a little of beauty, history, and v pleasure. When we left the harbor, the pilot aboard our ship seemed to symbolize the only part of Portuguese life which most of us had had an opportunity to see. He wore yellow trousers, a green coat, mistook the Java pot on the bridge for a spit kid, and insisted upon calling the cap- tain " Jack " . ,—. 1 he next tour wBf bound tor ., Gibraltar, were spent by many scrtib- bing. We were wearing whites in- stead of the customary khaki, and many suits screeched for attention. We steamed minus the " Minnie, " which had fouled her anchor in the Tagus. She caught us just as we were dropping anchor in the inner ijm ' harbor. The Rock was unrecogniz- able, as we had approached it from a different angle than had the imagina- tive painter of the Prudential sign. At the base of the Rock was the town, where one principal street was crowd- ed with shops run by Moors, Jews, and all sorts of indiscriminate ' ra mixtures. After dealing with them we all felt capable of borrowing any amount of money from the hardest pawn shop dealer in New York. From every shop came sounds re- sembling a spirited auction sale. After purchasing our souvenirs, din- ner and the trip around the rock finished the Wb a lMMMlWll Although Gibraltar was rather dull, some of us had the privilege of going across the straits to Tangiers for a day. It was the strangest, most unique city of our limited acquaintance. Can you forget the odor, the narrow streets which more nearly resembled our narrowest alley- ways, the little donkeys which served LIS so well all day long, the beg- gars, the gowned men, and the lack of women on the streets.? It made the pictures in the old geography of grammar school days realities. - 3.1 i o sooner had we left Tangiers and returned to our ships, than our minds turned to other, sweeter things, for next day we were leaving for home. True, it was home via a stop-over at Guantanamo, but we _ ere heading in the right directionT " - anyhow. The trip across was long, tedious, and very hot. It was a relief to go ashore and stretch our muscles and visit the Chink ' s. And we got plenty of healthful exercise coaling ship. From the minute the football squad left via destroyer there was but one thought — home. The rest of the time was torture; worst of all the two days ' wait in Annapolis roadstead, relieved and yet aggravated by the sight of the Chapel dome and the Academy. , But the days did pass, and it was V " Home boys, home, it ' s home we gh, to be. " jmmm When at last we did sit in the seat of honor at home and related our experiences, the dear ones said that it was all wonderful — " to think that you, my son, are having such oppor- tunities. " And it was a happy oppor- tunity, that Second iQktS ii uiise of oucs jvasn ' t it? i r V : 1 sd7 V t on fatkneyecT yet ominously true, ttypical embarkation. If only the Cumberland quartette had evolved Tosti ' s " Good-by, " the scene might have been imagined a melodrama as poignant as " Roanoke, " or any musical comedy as far as plot and con,tiriuity figured. Not to include the numerous potential puns from the song, such as " fading tree. " The only girl (at that time; most of them and us have changed since) had a vivid glimpse into the sterner side of our life. Cerberus (better known as mother) : " Good heavens, Mildred, what can be the matter with that boy.? He looks a thousand years old. I ' ve heard none of them slept the last night, but what can he have been doing? " l! Rt i— . Mildred (sweet memories, only those, now!) " Why, he does look queer, rather haggard, don ' t you think ? Who is he, Jimmy.? " Jimmy (living example of " Caesar, morituri tesa lutamus " ) : " Him.? Why, that ' s Bob, my wife. You had two . J7 jr - UP --wv ii7 dances on the program with him last night. " Mildred: " Well, why does he look so frightfully aged? Can ' t he find Elizabeth? " - . y " Jimmy: " I told you before that he is squad leader A-- - — . - ' — Mother, Mildred (unenlightened but polite): " Oh. " Youngsters, who before the cruise would be finished would have the saltiest roll, were trying hard to register well-bred disdain; inside they felt like cattle in a pen, watch- ing an uncouth creature herding batches of them toward a huge, insatiable knife. The Second Class- men were busy swapping the latest dope, experiences of the week, and plans. The First Class, at least those who weren ' t far enough gone be- yond consciousness, had several twinges of premonition. Perhaps a iashback may explain better. A " certain sultry evening in May, 1922, the editor of this spasm, was asked how the cruise could be written up in time, since it couldn ' t be started until September. The character who has successfully combined tht ' craftiness of Shylock, the driving cruelty of Simon Legree, and the 2 , sweet face of Florence Nightingale, summed it up in three words " We caught hell. " He knew. To be honest though, several mean- ings may be construed from " hell. " There is the hell of monotonous rou- tine for weeks on end, the hell of a good time on liberty, the hell of not hearing from a certain person, the hell of running into the skipper when you ' re breaking in your non- reg shoes and also out of uniform — the various sorts were all present and the hell of the seven weeks with Fahrenheit over the hundred mark. The practical optimists thought that it wasn ' t going to rain, but the ex- perienced ones read beyond the im- mediate signs. Right on schedule, before the first gang aboard could transfer their bags below came the gentle rain, with all the persistence and penetration of a twelve inch shell. When the boys still on the way arrived, they had quite a time deciding whether to exercise to dry off, and starve before six, or take a chance and stay wet. Their thought- ful predecessors had cleaned the ship. There were two dry sea bags on the Delaware, one had been hope- fully tagged U. S. S. Olympia, and the owner of the other bag had lost the key to the lock. One crafty mortal had brought just enough to fill one bag, and to compensate for his cleverness he put a bottle ot stencil ink at the top. Due to usual care in handling it, he passed for the black gang the rest of the cruise. With wisdom born from bitter experience, the ratey ones found the quiet corners and proceeded to hiber- nate. The youngsters didn ' t know whether to run the risk of getting lost while hunting their locker, or staying top side till some bo ' s ' n took pity. Most of them hadn ' t been asleep since early Wednesday morn- ing, and the strenuous program of that day, Thursday and half of Fri- day found them almost as ruined as their first class shepherd, who by this time had lost reason, will, and memory. After the understanding solace of Kelly ' s, The Lobby and over the top, some of those idiots were gently led to convalescence, but the mere trill of a bo ' s ' n ' s pipe made them shudder. The last mail carried incoherent, burning reams to Her, and pathetic, humbleappealstothefinancialadvisor. Then up anchor, with ten days of that fascinating sport — " where are my youngsters? " and amateur navi- gation (the bird who defined said science as " the art of conducting a ship from one point to another on the earth ' s surface, or elsewhere, ' ' was thoroughly cognizant of the situ- ation). As soon as the silk socks and the dancing pumps not worn since the June Ball began to dis- integrate, shoes began their inexpli- cable habit of wandering. A clean white hat was the mark of a crook, a maniac for work or the proud ex- possessor of a pack of Fats, two bits or equivalent tender. The only squad leader who had held out that long was heard to laugh. Sympa- thetic friends inquired. " My division officer after requesting 49 changes of sea details each day for the past week, just asked where I had been all this time. He didn ' t recognize me. " Again the lau gh as Fannie. ■1 J4I I pv ' . Hi 7 lol f t, . .. ; g: : ; ! .L-.i ' , ;t-y:sr 342 Hurst said, " a dry brittle laugh, as something breaking. " After that he was allowed topside only with vigi- lant escort, because he evinced a de- sire to play hide and seek in the guns, collide with the barbetes, and cut his teeth on the stanchions. Colon showed up green, cool look- ing, army and navy planes overhead, and, best of all, automatic coaling docks. Gatun Lake made fresh water showers possible, and for those who could convince the guard of their sanity, liberty. The tropics may be hot, vitiating, and lazy. The people may be indolent, procrastinating, and dull, but use any of these ad- jectives to describe the evening ' s routine ashore and the result is monstrously false. Besides, there was the sport of comparing notes on relative drawbacks. The Florida gang sobbed that it was impossible to enter the J. O. Mess unless one had a Bowditch opened at Table 46. They also had the unique situa- tion of four admirals on one ship, three standing regular watches. Some of the hard hit boys were further ensnared each mail by the arrival of envelopes x9.qtly alike (in- side and out), except for the numbers which ran in sequence from one up to as high as seventeen in one case. I After Colon the fleet separated, the Florida going to Trinidad, the North p to St. Kitts, the Olympia q. St: Lucia, and the Delaware to Martinique. The flagship and the " Big D " fared the best in the matter of ports. St. Kitts was the rendezvous, from whence the long trail led to Culebra, aptly described as the nineteenth carbon copy of nothing. The powers evidently wishing to compensate for the utter lack of possibilities ashore, devised the torment of landing force drill, up and down perpendicular hills covered with cactus and profan- ity, which would have been fertile suggestion for Edgar Allen Poe, if he could have survived. The week- end in Saint Thomas did us all a lot of good. The Americans claimed that they were glad to see us, but we would like to find that same brand of hospitality any time. The Olym- pia weaved her way to San Juan with the " flower " of the class; ac- cording to reports it was almost as J " i»- it L. uWe wejejfiay i— " good -as the Commodore after , an Army-Navy game. There was final roundup in Culebra, accom- panied by a general uplift in spirit — yea, a mighty uplift, ing for Halifax. " r There are exceptions to almost every rule, except one of the well- known laws of the Navy, and the fact that everyone agreed on Halifax as the best port of the cruise. The climate was like home, and the people were so much like Yankees that it was almost Sep Leave a month ahead ot time. There couldn ' t have been a single wish unfulfilled; the social wonders had excellent opportunities, the economists were astounded at the small operating cost, and to those of quiet tastes many a home was opened without reserve. The open-hearted people had but one serious fault — it seemed positively rude and most horribly difiicult to convince them and yourself that it was necessary to return to- the ship. The courtesy of the various clubs and hotel s made it possible for us to enjoy most ot the many points of civic pride, such as the Arm. Possibly the change from " I Iwarm to codl dfmate also had its ef- fect in raising the morale. Morn- Ings aboard ship were invigorating enough ! The city itself was not the only source of recreation, for there were several outlying places very attractively situated and managed. Universal regret was felt when the time came to turn south for target practice. Our only chance to return any of the many kindnesses received was the joint Delaware-North D hop, which seemed to go very well. The Big D considerately waited until after- ward to burst her (m1 pipe, and belch forth dangerous looking clouds of greasy smoke. Only casualties, sev- eral ruined dress uniforms and many wet midshipnien when a hose broke away in a gun deck passage. Then Point Z and S. R. B. P. via Lynn Haven Roads. Target prac- tice was looked forward to with a great deal of curiosity. Rumor was also busy to the effect that a detail of midshipman officers would " take charge " after our return from firing. The many hours at general quarters (uibo ' j.the only,,general,in the Navy, 1% I tt Wi , ( fmster?ywdre we spent. The weather was all that could be desired, and the scores all very creditable. Altogether a most interesting and instructive experience, and a very valuable one for the " thpe qu arte rs fficers " es- pecially. The temporary millennium arrived. A complete set of midshipman officers was selected and placed " in charge " — with an eager advisor ever-present to the respective elbows. The good old Navy method of lubrication was responsible for their selection. Out- raged temporary Bos ' n ' s Mates de- cided instanter to retire. It was lots of fun (for the bos ' n ' s mates, et al.) We loafed along up the bay in three stages, manipulating the respective mud-hooks without serious damage to paint-work or innocent bystanders. Then the harrowing wait off the Academy — living only on hope and anticipation — coming to life not once until the morning of departure, when it was time to draw the shekels and pick up the very much slimmer piles of belongings. We shoved joyfully off, forgetful of all past discomforts, — mindful only of the Month ahead. V P I II l» " There. Over the point. Dont you see? ' ' " There it is. The Chapel dome. " " Thank God. " The recording angel did not hesitate an instant as he wrote the last two words down in someone ' s prayer col- umn in the big red book. And who will question his act? After three long months at sea as midshipmen these words, as they were uttered by nearly two thousand men, were not in vain. They constituted a prayer straight from hearts full of anticipation as over the point there loomed a land- mark — the landmark which meant that in twenty-four hours and for thirty precious days each man woidd be free. Free. Can ' t you see what it means. No more " up all hammocks. " No more mid-watches. No more doubtful food. And above all no more waiting for the mail boat. In one more day those from whom letters meant so tnuch will be welcoming home, each in his or her own way, a boy who for three tedious months has been longing to see them, much more than his letters have shown. First mother, with a tender hug and kiss. Then dad with a hearty handshake and a smile that does yiot quite cover up the ' true feeling showing through. And later on someone else who has her own individual greeting almost worth a three months absence since it is so much more Pi ■worth while upon return. Friends everywhere. Friends who stop him on the street to say how glad they are to see him., and ask him to tell of his experiences, the favorite pastime of all midshipmen. By the end of the month the navy is much in danger of losing a very good man, who cant quite decide to return to it and cofitinue life as a hero, or to resign and become president of the bank or run for the senate or go in for some equally modest work. JVhat a month it is. The proverb of " Early to bed ' ' is no more; for who is after knowledge or wealth on Septem- ber leave? The results of eleven long months of naval discipline are undone in a week as each member of the family does his best to spoil at least one midshipman. The keys to the front door, the keys to the car, — even the keys to dad ' s cellar — are presented, and good; well, per- haps not too good but at least satisfactory use is made of all of them. Dimmers, dances, theatres, .swimming, tennis, golf. Evenings spent - under the big harvest moon and evenings 548 I spent bi ' fort- the fireplace. There is something for all, and each man follows the path of his oivn choosing through the thirty blissful days, trying to do in that short space of time the multitude of things he had planned. It cant be described. Heaven after hell? No. Life after death? No. It ' s Just hovie after a midshipman s practise cruise. Tzventy-nine days have passed. Again at the station are gathered those who welcomed the wanderer home. The train pulls in. A regretful hug and kiss from the mother of whom you haven t perhaps seen as much as you should; a hearty handshake from the dad who you perhaps have never really appreciated before: a kiss and a promise for someon else, and the train pulls out. September leave is past. And then in the morning — " Big leave, boy? " " Did I? Let me tell you zvhat I ' ve done. Joe, she ' s the most wonderful girl. Oh, God, how I wish I were home. " And that ' s another prayer. " ' ' liL f T 349 i I .

As Athletic Officer, he worked with all his might to restore athletics to the plane they now occupy, on a par with any college, and to shake off the lethargy acquired durmg the war when the Navy had sterner tasks than athletic contests. With his power of foresight, a system of universal physical training was adopted, a truly Howard system. Under his comprehensive guidance, the Navy turned out teams which caused the country to wonder when, in one year after a successful game against Army, a position of prime importance in the winter sports, a successful spring season, the year came to a climax when Navy crews, after winning the championship of the United States, swept to victory on the canal at Antwerp, the acclaimed championship crew of the World. " Doug " leaves behind at the Academy a personal athletic record to spur on any man to athletic triumphs, a system destined to add more achievements in the future, and a person- ality endeared to all of us. 36S n MMMMMj M MMM jtJ» ' t M £tJ»j» »J» J» j»M I The Regiment Arrives ARMY-NAVY FOOTBALL GAME 1922 An Army-Navy game! High water mark of the year, snake dances; pep-tele- grams from the fleet, speeches from all the dignitaries, dignified and otherwise, — speeches from the team, remarkable not so much for oratory as for sincerity and unanimity of purpose — howling bedlam in the mess hall, hard on furniture but evident of spirit, the hall plastered and peppered with signs everywhere, even Tecumseh, decked in gorgeous war-paint, sustained in his glory by the figureheads from the seamanship building , restored to life by forces unseen. We started final preparations for the game, the team, the midshipmen, the oflfi- cers, and the fleet, with the knowledge that we were the underdogs, than which there is no better tonic or spur. We had seen the regiment ' s spirit falter and the Penn game lost. A quick recovery and Penn State went down in defeat. The wave moved on and we were determined that that spirit should not die; on the contrary, that it should grow, and spread, and blossom out into glorious victory on Franklin Field, that fateful Saturday afternoon. All hands and the ship ' s cat were on hand for practice those last two weeks and slung out the vocal chords in a valiant efi ort to shatter every window in the hall, just to let the team know that we were 100% behind them. The climax came Thursday afternoon, the twenty-third, when the final pra ctice at home was held. Henry gave us all the dope, the team went through a snappy n n. . d Mit M j».

Corps of Cadets signal drill, and we gave the songs the final touches with the aid of the great mid- shipman band. Then the team left, and, like any full-grown avalanche, the regi- ment, two thousand strong, descended from the stands and followed, our pick-up band doing bravely but receiving little attention. Henry had all the plans made, and they worked beautifully. The horde was finally massed between the gym and the second wing, where, with the Arcade as a speaking platform, and in the light of a warming bonfire, we howled lustily for all the officers present, and they responded nobly. Because of the Arcade, Henry, leading those cheers, reminded us much of the Mohammedans we ' d seen calling upon Allah. Then the team came out, greeted by a howl to which all previous seemed like whisperings in a sick room. They all spoke, just a few words but to the same end, their unanimous will to win, that it would be a struggle, but we should hope for the best, knowing full well that each was giving his all to bring home the bacon. We well knew this to be true and in our attempt to confirm our belief, the four-N which followed (stealing a good one from the Baltimore Sun) reached the seismograph in Washington. In the mess hall nobody ate much, just an excuse for being there and imbibing the spirit, or better absorbing such. More telegrams from the fleet, and then the same midshipman ' s band, which had performed so valiantly before that afternoon, appeared from the Fourth Wing entra nce and there followed more snake dances, more speeches, and more practical work on behalf of the Regiment to convince the team that we were always behind them. 371 f.f.f.f.9.f.f.W9.f.9.9.9.f.f.f.f.}.yfJ.f.f.9J .

Then for the Regi- ment. For the first time since the cessa- tion of hostilities against a common enemy, we were to see the " big " game in Philadelphia, on the same old Franklin Field where we have had such hard luck. This year we knew we had no mean Army to fight. The papers gave us that " dope " for weeks ahead, as they had before other games, and that was what we liked. Navy had listened to that before, with wonderful results. We were out to put all we had into that game, and the best team was going to win. The team knew it probably better than we. We were not over-confident, because you can ' t be in a Service classic. And thus we saw the game, the like of which probably was never seen before. And it went to prove the old adage, " the game is never won until the final whistle blows. " The Kaydets arrived first, and during their entrance, the Regiment was parked on the streets leading to the field, absorbing much of Philly ' s dust. They proceeded around the field in a column of squads, and having presented an appearance that justified their reputation, they manned their stands on the south side of the field. Then we got underway. With no muddy field to make the footing unsteady, no barbed wire barricades to impede the march, the first company swung into com- pany front, and came across the field in excellent fashion, to be repeated by the seven companies that followed, to the tune that puts the old thrill down your spinal column, " Anchor ' s Aweigh. " How could they do otherwise . We were proud of our team and with no other thought intervening, we were bound to make good, to make it " four strate. " Spirit was never greater. The roar began, never to be quelled again except in the short interval between plays when the signals must be heard. In contrast to other well- j,jm AJ»j j»J» J»J»J» y J y» jMJ , f :i!

The towering stands like those of Coogan ' s Bluff looked down on the field of fray. Friend and foe for the day were in the open, neither could claim the advan- tage of the covered stand to augment the volume of sound. A brisk wind blew from the west, kicking up fine clouds of dust, a wind that was responsible for the fatal margin of three points. Didn ' t it thrill to get off that four-N with three West Points .? Then to hear the stands of grey come back with the " Long Corps " -Navy. Though fight we must, we are brothers in arms, and win or lose, we are always friends. Then the Army team came out and, led by Breidster, they ran through a snappy signal practice, but hold, here they com e! Henry was out there in his checkered sweater, with four fingers up, " A four-N, one Navy, and three teams! " With everything we had we gave it. Boy, didn ' t that team look like a million dollars .? And they played like it. Short and snappy signal practice, a moment or more to talk it over, which has often meant so much, and they were ready, raring to go. A few minutes before two-thirty, the oflScials gathered for the ever-present consultation. With every thought on that game, and that spirit " We ' re with you, Vin " , Navy won the toss, and wisely chose to defend the west goal, with the wind down the field. When, " All hands up anchor " came as ne ' er before. Army would go some to make us change our course, and the game was on. It was a battle which tested men ' s hearts, and men ' s spirits, and flesh, too, to the utmost. Men tack- led hard, ran hard, those in the stands did their part by cheering hard. When things looked black, there always was the old re- frain, " Fight, fight, fight, " used by either side and always effec- tive in its purpose. Navy spirit is a strange thing, but we never gave up the fight, and when the final whistle blew and the Pointers hurled themselves from 373 kn t.MMMM MyM » »MMMj»jt tMi» M MMj»j»j»j» MJ J» j » Mt j9j MJ» J» A »j»J j»MJ»j»J» if zzzaaaszzas the stands, only then did we know it was over, that the Army had won. The first period was what might be called fast football, and so hard was it fought that it ended a tie, though it demonstrated the tactics of each team and promised a great game, full of pep and stellar football. Barchet, however, gifted with some splitting power, easily pierced the holes in Army ' s line that his larger teammates made, and proved a constant source of worry to the Army backs. Navy, making use of a long pass, near the end of this quarter, got underway for Army ' s goal, and things began to move. The second quarter was shortly opened when a pass — by Conroy — made twenty yards, and put Navy only twelve yards from Army ' s goal. One play was enough, McKee pulled down a direct pass, and with perfect interference, skirted left end for a touchdown, and first blood for Navy. Barchet added the extra point. The Pointers came back with a brilliant burst of play, and after the kick-ofif, the ball again in their possession, Smythe took it and ran thirty yards on one of his twisting zig-zag runs, putting it finally on our 31-yard mark. The Army hit a snag. Wood lost three yards, they were penalized for ofif-side play when they used the jump shift, and finally calling back Army ' s center, Garbisch, they tried a placement which Garbisch teed to perfection, and, maintained by a favorable wind, it sailed cleanly over the cross-bar, the first score that Army had made since 1916. We were still ahead four points, an uncomfortable margin, and though Army fought very hard, the half ended with the ball on our 7-yard mark, why they did not try a field goal is a mystery. The minutes between the halves were taken up with the felicitations of cabinet members. Generals and Admirals, the songs and cheers of our two Academies. Then the Army tried a new one. They added to the trick gun a ship which they endeavored to sink, but with our cries of " We won ' t give up the Ship " and apparent- ly poor marksmanship, it proved a very diflficult job, and though bombs were bursting our cheer leaders made a gallant effort to save the colors.

A few changes in the line-up had been made, and they followed the spheroid with more fight than ever. A poor punt by CuUen gave Army the first break. Smythe ran it back for twenty yards. A pass — Wood to Smythe to White — brought the ball down to our 2-yard line, where our line held with stonewall stubbornness. But Army was set and could not be held, and Law- rence finally broke through, and made the first touchdown for Army since the war had ended. Army was in the lead! Hardly had the final quarter started when Navy, setting sail from Army ' s 43- yard line, by two good passes, one for twenty-one yards, the other for nine, put Army in danger again, a danger that Cullen and Norris brought home to the 1-yard line, and then a final punch for a touchdown by Conroy, while Norris added another point from a spectacular drop-kick. Navy was in the lead again. Well, we thought the game was over. To borrow from the New York Herald, " as the light of the new moon began to flicker over the scene. Army came crashing on to glory and Timberlake brought home the bacon. " It was hard to believe but so it was, the hardest, cleanest, cleverest, most versatile game ever. The score was against us but we were " triumphant in defeat. " The first defeat in years, we look upon it as the Service should. ARMY THE LINE-UP: D.

The followers of the national sport came from camp, station, and ship, to look over the prospects. The number present was enormous, because there were added those of the fleet present on the ships of the Practice Squadron, and to this fleet the MARYLAND, the mightiest ship afloat, and the MAYFLOWER, bearing the distinguished " fan " , the President, added charm. The morning of the game, the Army team arrived and along the streets of Annapolis, lined on both sides by members of the Regiment, they rode until they arrived at their destination where an outburst of spirit, both in songs and cheers, most vehemently signified to them that we were ready to dispute each and every point of the contest. t u • Early in the warm afternoon, the bleachers were filled to capacity and when Hans Lobert s charges trotted on the field for a little preliminary practice to test the effect of a night on the train on the batting eye, seats were hard to find and the whole spectacle was a mass of color, in one corner the blue uniforms and white caps of the solid midshipman block, in the center and sides, the bright colors of those here to witness the festivities of June Week, and scattered throughout, the gold of myriads of officers back once again to their Alma Mater. , u , ■ In contrast to the blue and gold was the Army rooting section where the dull-brown of the khaki clad forces held sway. In this game, the solid ranks of gray were missing, the additional color which makes complete the spectacle of the football game.

The big Navy dirig- ible, the C-7, took a most active part in the aerial display and cavorted in every direction over the held, now between us and the sun, now outlined in the clear blue, ever seeking a more advantageous position. When the Pointers laid aside their bats, the Navy team took the field and pounded out a few in anticipation of greater doings, later. They looked well-determined to erase the sting of defeat sustamed the previou s year. This game was to be the supreme test for Navy. During the previous season, we had made a change in the coachmg system and now instead of Billy Lush, Ensigns Blakeslee and Milner, and Johnny Wilson directed the development of the team. If success is to be judged by the number of victories, the team had been very successful and though the newspapers were inclmed to give the edge on the game to Army, the Regiment looked upon the coming contest with confidence. Just before the ball was tossed in the cap- tains came together and with the officials de- cided what would constitute the limits of the home-run and the number of bases to be allow- ed other choice placements of the ball over the field. The game was on. Umps, Captains and Coaches First Inning Army. " Slim " Kelly, the main support of Navy ' s pitching staff, took the mound and Army ' s lead-off man, Smythe, advanced to the plate and walked on a pass from Kelly. Then Kelly tightened a bit but Wilhide chose a pretty one and placed a single in left field. Next came French, whom we had seen many times before, ever dangerous and on a fast one from Kelly ' s delivery, brought Smythe home. Wilhide attempted to stretch matters a bit, but Hogan caught him at the plate. Storck went out on a hit to Barchet and Reeder followed on a grounder to Durgin. Navy. Our own reliable " Dale " was the first man to face Cragin, the Army hope in the pitcher ' s box. Harris reached for one, knocked it, and on an error by Reeder, made first. Rawlings singled through third. Durgin brought home the bacon for Navy with a single through Dasher which Harris took as a signal to cross the plate. Niemyer was out on a pop fly to Dasher and Mai Hogan ended it by a hit to Dasher which made a pretty double play. Dasher to Wilhide to Reeder. Army 1-Navy 1. . |JB « UaU Harris Connects .Xai ' y II arming L p Second Inning Army. The Kaydets went down fast after Dasher, who reached first on Mill ' s error, was out when Wood hit to Durgin. Navy. Navy certainly put the game on ice this inning when they netted four runs which forced the Army pitcher from the mound, relieved by Sarcka. Baker led off but flied to Wilhide Mills walked but was held at second on Barchet ' s grounder to Wilhide. Then came " Slim " Kelly, and he certainly picked a pretty one for a triple which brought in Mills while Harris brought in Kelly with a single to right field. Rawlings then took up the work, and after his well-remembered wiggle stepped on one and Harris crossed the plate. Then Sarcka came to Cragin ' s rescue and retired Niemyer in short order. Army 1-Navy 5. Third Inning Army. Smythe again got on base, this time on a balk by Kelly. Harris dropped a fly off Wilhide ' s bat and French, the next up, popped out to Baker. Storck walked and Smythe was forced in. Kelly put one over and Reeder knocked it into Baker ' s hands but a costly error filled the bases. Things looked bad until Dasher hit into a double play and ended Army ' s fun. Navy. Navy went down fast in this frame, when, after Hogan had walked, followed by Baker, Mills singled, and Hogan was caught at the plate. Barchet and Kelly finished the innings. Army 2-Navy 5. Fourth Inning During this inning, both played air-tight ball and neither scored. Fifth Inning Army. Army was a bit more successful this inning and in a small rally, through a few good hits, earned a " run. Smythe and Wilhide, both feared as safe hitters, went out easily. French had better luck and reached first on a single to right. Storck singled through third and French scored, but Reeder closed the inning on a short fly. Navy. Niemyer, first up, drew a pass, followed by Hogan. Baker grounded to Reeder and Mill ' s pop to Storck, relayed to Reeder, counted another against Navy. Then hard luck and good luck combined put a ball in Barchet ' s ribs, and Niemyer scored when Kelly walked. Hams then drove a pretty single to left which brought in Hogan but Barchet was caught at the plate. Army 3 -Navy 7. 0- -, - •- f h ' .

When Sarcka walked. Army believed Kelly was weakening but not for long because Mills caught Sarcka napping and Smythe grounded to Barchet. Navy. Instead Sarcka weakened and was replaced by Goodman after walking Rawhngs. Durgin walked and scored on Niemyer ' s hit through short. Niemyer stole second. Hogan was out on a hot one to Wilhide and Baker ' s fly to Smythe ended matters. The game looked clinched for certain now. Jrmy 3-Navy S. Seventh Inning The seventh inning has always been believed to be Navy ' s own but this time luck tried to even the score. Probably Army had hopes in the seventh also and wished just a bit harder than Navy followers so that our luck ran low. At any rate, the Army team, spurred on by a loyal cheering section, led by a second lieutenant who worked so hard under the hot sun that he had to shed some of his garments, started a rally that was very threatening while it lasted and boosted Army ' s score two notches nearer Navy ' s total. Army. Wilhide looked them over and sent a pretty hot one to Barchet and on an error made first. He stole second and when French singled to left, crossed the plate safely. Storck flied to Harris and Reeder popped one to Baker. Dasher tripled to right center bringing in French but was himself caught at the plate. Navy. Navy ' s confidence in the seventh was sadly astounded and the side went in quick suc- cession before the Army pitcher. Army 5-Navy 8. Eighth Inning Army. Again Army was to score and Wood led off with a single to left and stole second. Bonnet was put out. Goodman singled to right center scoring Wood. Goodman was caught off first and Wilhide flied to Baker. Navy. Harris and Rawlings both knocked weak ones to Goodman and Durgin took the count from Goodman. Army 6-Navy 8. Ninth Inning Army. French flied to Rawlings and Storck singled to left. Post then batted for Reeder and bunted to Mills. The game was over.

Roosma Shoots for Army ARMY-NAVY BASKETBALL GAME 24 FEBRUARY, 1923 THE Kaydets came, they saw, they conquered. Navy bowed in defeat before an Army five that combined all the finesse of an unconquered quintet, which with its shifty speed on the floor, its accuracy of long shots, and its superior teamwork spelled disaster for the Navy with a score of 37-29. The first half, with its score of 21 to 14 caused joy and hilarity among Army rooters, led by the dapper second lieutenant, apparently the same who worked so valiantly last June as Army cheer leader that he caused that threatening rally of the Army Team. Ho wever, Navy rooters waited for the second half comeback, and so our spirits were dampened but little. But in the second half, the Navy Team failed to rally and our hopes were in vain. Once, how- ever, our hopes did rise, but Army soon came back to the assault, and never again did we really endanger Army ' s right to the game. Army had a defense for every thrust we made, the Navy Team was unable to get through it. Vichules was the outstanding star of the game; diminutive, crafty, traveling low, the ball m his possession meant disaster for Navy. Vichules was a sore spot in the side of Navy and Barnes worked as never before to guard his shifty opponent, but he was unsuccessful. Dabezies, the Armv captain, one of that long, lean type, so prevalent among centers, played his position well, and rarely did he miss taking the ball from the Navy center, Walshe. The rest of the Army Team, Roosma, Forbes and Wood — they were all good, not merely individually, but as a team of five men. They worked smoothly, with uncanny precision, the same thing that Navy lacked. Shapley played the best game for Navy. Four field goals, under most spectacular conditions, were his contribution to the score. Besides his scoring ability, he guarded well, and proved most destructive in breaking up Army ' s offense when they got too near our basket. " Pete " McKee played a good game but it was not up to the standard usually set by him. His rival on the Army Team took very good care of him and " Pete " couldn ' t rid m li II himself of his alert guardian. His luck at the basket was off and his usual perfect- aimed long shots rolled harmlessly off the edges. However, he never went up in the air and when the game was going fastest, McKee worked calmly and did his utmost to start the Navy rally. Walshe, at center, was somewhat off form. Lack of experience, undoubtedly, was re- sponsible for a great deal of it, because the large crowd, the great attendant excitement, seemed to worry him, and kept hmi from taking the long chances in which he previous- ly had been so lucky. Parish played his position well but with- out support, his work didn ' t amount to what it should have, and though he played hard, it was in vain. Barnes was given the job of guarding the slippery Vichules. It was something that couldn ' t be done, in many opinions. Barnes was too long and he slipped through easily. The Navy guard worked hard but his task was too difficult. Jones and Harris both entered the game for a time. They played a good game while in but still the Army scored. The substitu- tion looked promising but it was too late, the time for retaliation was gone. The Army Team was supreme at all times. The Army squad was first on the floor, and Navy entered soon after. After the officials had talked it over, the game was on. McKee received the ball on the tip-off, but Forbes rescued the ball for Army. Vichules then got loose and began his deadly work. McKee made Navy ' s first point on a foul, a free-toss, giving us our first score but Army was already in the lead. The game waxed hot and fast, played fiercely by both sides, as only rival contests should be, and the half went fast, much to our hard Kick, and after some very good basketball, the half ended Army 21, Navy 14. While the Team was out getting the " dope " between the halves, the Regiment utilized the time in cheers and songs. Our brothers before us, the row of Admirals who occupied the seats on the side lines could be seen to express nods of approval as the " Blue and Gold " was given for the first time. Though " triumphant in defeat " , we were out to win that game first, and when the team re- turned, we tried to let them know it. The Army line-up was the same. Barnes was back again for Navy. This half Vichules again seemed unhampered and worked just as efi ectively. The game was even at a greater fever-heat than before. Harris was substituted for Parish, Jones for Walshe. Still Navy could not stop the Pointers. With eight minutes to go. Navy made a last effort to set matters right. Wood fouled Harris under the Navy basket and McKee put in two. Harris made another dash for the hoop and put another in with Wood on his shoulders. Barnes put a long one in but was fouled as he threw. McKee made the point. Navy ' s last. Army had a four-point lead and finally increased it to eight, the last point on a foul which Roosma made. The final score was 37 to 29.

THE team that donned the blue jerseys this year for Navy promised everything we had seen the year previous and left hope for more. Confronted by a very diffi- cult schedule, they did the job nobly and nothing but Franklin Field, combining all the jinx and bad breaks of years past for a final throw, deprived the hardest play- ing Navy team from adding the starry constellations to those al- ready acquired and leaving mule beaters as material for the future. When Bob Folwell called his co- horts together from the four corners of the land for practice after an enjoyable leave, he put the facts before them, gave them the schedule, and bid them " Read ' em and weep. " But there was no time for such and they got down to brass tacks, or rather the dust of Farragut Field, and worked and fought, to make the Navy team of this year uphold the standards so gloriously set the previ- ous year. Holes there were to be filled with Larson, King, Frawley, Sanborn, Wiedorn, Koehler, and Captain-elect Carney Thach, Manager I tJS ' ' V. , ' , : ' f s- t « :r-i ' . ■® ' - At ' f " _il ' .; ' :« , : ' j s.-.UC ' WB cr-K (fcj jL- ' .

However, material was abun- dant, both those of past experience who had been tried and tested, and several good recruits from the new " Plebe " class. Matthews soon made himself at home in Larson ' s berth and proved himself as well- fitted for that as the squared ring. Lentz, a plebe, showed up very well in adding a needed bulwark in the line, but pushed hard by Wink- jer, he gave way and our aquatic star proved himself equal to his berth on land. Clyde, ever a dark- horse, stepped out a bit and by fight and the good, hard, ever-enduring devotion to work, made his way to a tackle position in the Army game. The backfield lined up pretty much as before, missing Noyes, of course, but being very well-maneuvered by the skipper, Conroy, aided by Mc- Kee, the man who came through in the pinches, Cullen, now a well- developed punter, Barchet, the won- der-man, and Eddie Norris, the smallest of them all, but destined to surprise the Army as they never were before.

To make the gang mentioned work, we had a second team which gave the team more opposition than most of our opponents on the schedule, and made every man on the coveted eleven work tooth and nail to hold his berth. The season opened a little later than usual. The first team to loom up on the horizon was Western Reserve. They brought down a speedy, light team but they could do little against us. Our back- field showed up more than the line since Navy had the ball most of the time, and the backs resorted to a little passing game all their own, Conroy netting the first touchdown of the season. These passes certainly surprised us and introduced us to the possibilities of such. " Bimbo " was up to his old tricks again and blocked a pret- ty kick. The visitors, broken in spirit by the big score 71-0, had at least put our team on the right track, and everything looked rosy and promised much. October 14 saw Bucknell, a scrap- py group of football players, in camp with us. They had a team which was very good in the ofFense and gave us much experience, our team being apparently inclined to take matters too easily. The plucky gang of rooters that followed this team surely were enthusiastic and by the signs they carried and the fuss they made with their one thought " To Sink the Navy " , we wondered whether Bucknell might not do what the Disarmament Con- ference came so near accomplishing. However, Bucknell gave us as stiff a battle as we wished and though the score was in our favor 14-7, we learned many things, and decided that hard work must be the program for the next week before the game with Georgia Tech. The next week found us face to face with the long-awaited and much heralded Golden Tornado.

With much interest and anxiety, we watched " Red " Barron, the Tech captain, lead his team through a snappy practice, watched them try out some very fine passes, and watched their punters display their wares. But the next day, back to the sunny Southland breezed a gentle zephyr, becalmed from over-contact with the meaner-end of a highly potent goat, a one-horned Navy goat at that. The closing hymn sounded strangely like that little ditty, " The Rambling Wreck from Georgia Tech " , sung in slow meter. It was a colorful spectacle to say the least. Crowded stands vaunting the orange of the visitors and the blue and gold bands which rivaled each other to make the greatest volume of sound, a parade by the Georgia Tech rooting section before the game, and finally Tech ' s entrance on the field, the long line of golden clad gladia- tors led by " Red " Barron, preceded by two like-clad diminutive mas- cots. It reminded one much of the setting for the Princeton-Navy spec- tacle the previous year, and what spirit we had then was far less than that displayed this year. The issue at stake was great and the rise or fall of the prestige of Navy ' s team rested upon the final score. Geor- gia Tech was decisively defeated in a game full of stellar football. Our team outdid all our hopes and played as finished football as one might expect only in the closing days of the football season. Briefly, our defense was perfect, our attack versatile and effective, and our spirit, of a caliber high enough to produce results. It was a very good game from a technical stand- point and though hard fought, neither side suffered a penalty. The game began when Conroy kicked off to Barron. We were waiting for the famous shift and our wishes were granted immediate- ly. The Tech team, like some smooth-working machine, dropped into their places, the signals given, Matthews Parr 387 lf.P.9.¥.W.9.9.W.W.f.W.WW.

But we were not fooled. The shift was broken up, we made our initial first down, and from then on the Navy team was hard to stop, especially Tay- lor, who opened the day with a 30-yard gain, and after a few rushes by Steve, the ball went over the last strip of whitewash for the count. This touchdown made Tech display more fight and they came back with some good gains by the aerial route, due to the accurate passing of " Red " Barron, until this game was finally broken up by Parr who tackled Barron for a loss. The second period, the ball was in Navy ' s possession most of the time and Taylor again played a leading part. After breaking up everything Tech showed, he made a wonderful running catch of Conroy ' s pass for a 37-yard gain and a touchdown. In the second half, Tech showed more fight than previously. After the kick-ofF, Tech was held for downs and forced to punt. Then Navy opened up with forwards and Taylor, again to the front, took the ball well down into Tech ' s territory. Conroy followed his example and CuUen brought up with a punt that went out of bounds on the 5-yard mark. Tech returned the ball on a punt and Barchet ripped off eighteen yards behind McKee. Barron then made a pretty catch ot a perfectly placed pass and the game raged back and forth in mid-field. The last quarter began with a speedy march down the field and on a long pass fumbled, luckily for Tech, behind the goal, they got the ball on the 20-yard line. The Tor- nado failed to pierce our Ime, and we, in turn booted, Matthews inter- cepted a pass, and carried the oval until dropped on Tech ' s S-yard line, where their line became a stone wall, and we lost the ball on downs. A kick once again removed them from danger, and after Cullen ran the ball back, a criss-cross, Conroy to Stoltz, and rushes by Norris, who had replaced Barchet, we were again on Tech ' s 7-yard line, when the game was over. Next week, we did not expect as great a battle as the one just closed. We had heard much of " Pos " Mil- ler and Thurman, but much be- littled the team on which they played. Part of the Regiment did not see the game, there was a lack of the spirit that carried us through the " Tornado " crisis, and we lost the game through the fact that the Taylor team did not receive the backing Clyde 388 ' in M M. j» ji» j» j» j j j . »j j» j»j» j»j» J» j»A »j»A.d»y». .

Spirit, the key to the whole situation was the element to which the Navy owes its bitter defeat at the hands of the heretofore insignificant Quakers. With all to win and nothing to lose, " Pos " Miller led his men as they were never led before in an uphill fight to the pinnacle of the most satisfying triumph Penn ever experienced. Our team played football, but in the crucial moments with the ball on the way across the last thin white line, Penn ' s defense stiffened so stubbornly, and with such a rush of fight, that out attack was in vain. Miller, on his toes all the time, kept his team underway always, imparting to all some of his unconquerable spirit. A bitter experience, exceeding- ly hard to survive, but of utmost importance before an Army-Navy Game. Penn kicked off and Eddie Norris made his way through right tackle and checked up the initial first down of the game. Then Penn stiffened and Cullen was forced to kick. Penn could gain nothing through our line, so the game developed into a kicking duel between Cullen and Hamer, our back having a slight edge on his opponent, which put us on position to make our only score. When Hamer kicked out of bounds in mid-field, Navy opened up. A 20-yard pass, McKee to Cullen, followed by line smashes by the former and Conroy gave us first down. With the ball down on Penn ' s 9-yard line, Norris raced through for four yards, tackled by " Pos " Miller. Then Conway in three bucks, finally threw himself across the line for our lone touchdown, to which he added the other point. Score: Penn 0; Navy 7. We received again and in a series of plays the most stellar of which was a 20-yard run by McKee, the ball came to rest on the 26-yard mark with the end of the quarter. The second quarter, Thurman now in the backfield for Penn, inter- cepted a pass which he lost by f umb- ling. We reached Penn ' s 10-yard mark and lost the ball. Penn ' s line was not working at its best and again in possession of the ball, we penetrated to their 8-yard mark and lost the ball again. This closed the half. A dedication of Franklin Field turned all luck against us, it seems. The second half. Miller for Penn, received the kick and in quicker time than belief would warrant, was threatening Navy ' s goal. A pass from Hamer, perfectly delivered, sent Miller over for the tying touch- down. We received again, did little or nothing except by line plunges which gained little and lost the ball. A blocked punt, a 30-yard pass, " Pos " Miller to deliver it, put the ball on our 1-yard line when the quarter ended.

Then Steve came to the res- cue. Although supposed to be a cripple, he carried the ball down to Penn ' s 14-yard line, where we tried a field goal which failed. Penn was unable to come back, and, the ball again in our possession, we staged a rally, cut short by an intercepted pass. Penn returned the ball and in an aerial game, which availed us nothing, the game ended, the ball x Penn ' s possession. Score: Penn 13; Navy 7. One fine Friday, they put us on one of IVIr. W. B. A ' s trains and sent us to Washington to watch the Navy team come back. They did, too! Penn State sadly lacked Glenn Killinger, and Wilson could not hit the stride he showed on Franklin Field with his brilliant co-partner, a year ago. The first quarter was nip and tuck and showed very clearly the defensive strength of both teams. Conroy kicked off and in four plays it was Navy ' s ball again. State was forced to kick and Navy did the same in turn. Both sides were forced to kick a few more times and then " Tiny " McMahon of State came crashing through and really opened the game. Then breaks came and went, Penn State tried two field goals but in vain, and the quarter ended scoreless. Then, since defensive work was so good. Navy took to the air, and finally Cullen, plucking the ball out of the air of his home town, went over for the first count. The half ended, Navy 7, Penn State 0. The second half was fast, too, and the game kept pretty much to the air. Now Navy has always been good on rushing, but they certainly surprised themselves when out ot their element. The last score of the game came when Kratz, tackled so hard by Taylor, dropped the ball, and Cullen, ever- present in the pinch, scooped it up and went over. Score Navy 14, Penn State 0. Norris almost made it one more, but a step outside at the twenty-yard line, and both sides offside ruined this spec- tacular run. However, Navy won and what more could we wish, a victory much more decisive than State has won over us before. The final game of the season was with St. Xavier, a light, fast team from Ohio, with many defeats to its credit, but not to be greatly feared, though the 52-0 score we made does not show that the visitors gave us quite a bit of trouble when, using an end around play, instead of the usual off tackle offensive, thev showed how such a play might disturb even the best wmgmen m the game.

We were lucky, of course, to lose but three of the regulars by graduation, Poole, Gaines and Pino, but luckier still to have those who could fill in the empty holes m short order. Dark horses who had always loomed up in the pinches and new recruits gave us plenty of material to draw from, and the hardest job, apparently, was to decide who should fill who ' s place. Well, it was soon decided, and very wisely as results show. When they lined up at the beginning of the season, we looked down to second and saw another diminutive youth covering the bag, where " Tiny " Pino had been, and even then he was wearing one emblem of victory over the Army won on another field. To be sure it was Barchet, and his work there during the season proved that second was a bulwark of defense. His co- worker was Heder- man, who is one of our topnotchers in the infield, but who, later in the season, was injured, so that his dream, to wear an N-Star, was lost when he was forced to sit on the bench, cane in hand, a vic- tim of hard luck. The skipper, " Hum p " , held down the initial sack, though in- capacitated early in the season when Niemyer and Alex- ander held down his position. The latter, a plebe, was one of the new re- cruits who showed himself capable as a utility man, to X ' fy A: " ' ' ]2 BTP Capt.mn Humphreys 393 li », , .d»d . J , »M . jl».i» J».

Then Durgin came to the fore, first behind the bat and when Humphreys left the game, he took his regular position at first. Baker, on third, played a very steady game and that place was settled for the season. Due to the injury of Hederman towards the end of the season Barchet went to short, and Mills, as clever as any of them, but left out just because they were all good, was called upon to cover second as teammate to Barchet and between them nothing destined for their territory got by. The outfield was easy. No outfield could fill our expectations as well as this combination. Hams at center was everywhere, from sneaking those just off second to chasing those destined for Upshur Row. with the same result, the ump loudly bellowing " Out " ! As lead off man on the batting order, he ruined more than one game for our opponents when he started the rally by a nice smgle and a burst of speed to first. Then out stalked Hank, gave us the familiar wiggle, looked the first one over and smack! Was it two or three.? Hank usually made ' em that way because it looked as though he had an aversion to running and wanted to allow plenty of time to get there. And as for that bandstand, when out in left-field there, he climbed all over it to reach ' em and they counted for noth- ing. Over in the right garden was " Ike " , called upon every so often to give a hand on the raised box but holding ' em all if they got past first. Sometimes he traveled fast, and we often wondered how he did but when he put the same weight on the ball, there was need of a scouting party to find it. This year we were especially strong in the delivery department where we could muster Kelly, Peter- son, Fleming, Niemyer, and Sparling. Kelly and Peterson bore the brunt of the season and " Ike " and Sparling came up when needed and put the necessary punch in the ball when either of our regular moundmen showed signs of wavering. Every game must be put on ice before we could feel satis- fied, and no chances were to be taken. Following this policy the season progressed smoothly, the team got together in finished style, and we were ready for the Army. The season opened with Bowdoin one fair Wednesday afternoon when Uncle Henry tossed over a hot one to Durgin, who was filling Mai ' s shoes, while the latter struggled nobly with the Academics. Then out strode a long slim boy, Kelly, with a wide smile, an attitude of self-confidence and determi- nation displayed in all his work, and from then on the game was fight, the final score making Navy the winner 7-6. Next came Maryland State who brought with them a fast team, so fast in fact that they had the edge on us until the " lucky seventh " , when a neat-bunching of hits netted us four runs sending Maryland State back home with a score of 7-1 against them. ... „,. Dartmouth, a representation of the north, as Bowdoin had been, met with a similar late. This game was noted especially for fielding, and the team Lush had on the field showed late-season form. The game was cinched in the bud, but interest never lagged. Kelly added eleven stike-outs to his belt and with the smoothest of work, his delivery and control were well-nigh perfect. With four three-baggers and a double, the score mounted up, and when the sun was sinking low, Dartmouth retired, the score 10-2, Navy in the lead. Until now, things had been moving a little too easy for us and somehow we seemed unprepared for the Cornell crew of bat-slingers. Cornell drew first blood in the first, when Wooden, Cornell ' s i Standing: Lush (Coach), Durgin, Hogan, Kelly, Baker, Rawlings, Harris. Sitting: Mills, Niemyer, Humphreys (Captain), Hederman, Barchet lead-ofF man, nicked one of Pete ' s offerings for a triple which scored the first one. In the third, Cornell scored two more and repeated this stunt in the fourth so that Navy entered the fifth with the score 5-0 against them. Then came a complete reversal of form. From worse than the present Athletics they developed into a combination that rivaled Mack ' s gang of more prolific days. Errors of commission and omission gave way to double plays and scintillating stops. Strike outs and feeble blows were succeeded by long drives to the outfield. Then the lucky sixth and seventh this time gave us four. With two out, the bases full, up came Harris, and as a result out went the ball over the right fielder ' s shoulders, count ' em, one, two and thr — , but a clever relay from Fox to Wooden to Tone cut Steve off at the plate, thereby de- priving us of the tying run. They left us with the score 5-4, the first Navy defeat of the season. Well, the old saying is, " It never rains but it pours " . And it didn ' t fail this time for Holy Cross had the goods, especially Carroll, the pitcher, and Navy lost by a score of 5-2. • Inability to hit in the pinches was the reason but we may blame some of it to the Holy Cross moundsman who gave the best exhibition of pitching seen on Wor- den Field up to this point of the season, even though " Slim " Kelly, with the exception of one inning, twirled a fine game. In the second inning, Doherty, the second man up, drove the first pitched ball far out into the left pasture for the first home run of the season. Holy Cross scored again in the fourth, but our rally started then when Niemyer advanced by Hederman, and tearing around on Durgin ' s single, scored the initial run. Things looked very bright when with two Cap ' t-elect Hederman ' Hank " Rawlings 395 aftrvtr trT rtrirarvtrtr trvtr trirv vvratvrtr rt trtrirtrtrtrtrtnrtrtrtrtr vtFtrararvtrtrtrtrtrtrtrftrtrirtrtrvv Lush, Milner, Commander Cooke, Blakeslee, Wilson on, Steve, next up, looked ' em over, but Carroll took the situation in hand and after three swings Steve took the count for the last out. Two straight was enough because there was a very perceptible snap to their work. Syracuse arrived in camp. Most of the Regiment was absent because few could pass up the reunion with the O. A. O., but the team played just as well and possibly better because Syracuse went down 3-2, in a very fast, tight game. Harris, the star of the game, perhaps, though they all played excellent ball, brought home the first score in the first, sent on his way by " Hank " and " Ike " . His final fiat came in the eighth when on a bunt he reached first. " Hank " using the hit-and-run method of ad- vance, contributed a bunt as Harris was rounding second, when the pitcher picked it up Dale was on third, and when the ball was going over the first baseman ' s head, Dale was crossing the platter for Navy ' s final run. . Then came Delaware who proved very easy as the score, 13-4, shows, especially, when Navy scored ten runs in the second. Captain Humphreys and Mai Hogan made their debut in the regular line-up and a smoothness was noted that had not existed previously. Rothroch, the Delaware pitch- er, had held Holy Cross scoreless for twelve innings a week before but Navy had little to fear from the porthander. Niemyer, after passing a few, picked out one and sent it over the lacrosse field for a homer, the longest seen here in several seasons. So went the game, easy but not what we desired.

The Tornado brought with them their pitchmg ace, Collins, but he was nicked for eight hits, well scattered, but perfect support kept him always out of danger. Niemyer was on the mound for Navy, and except for an inning or two, did creditable work, pulhng himself out of tight corners by superb pitching. But all in vain. A very unfortunate accident occurred in this game, when Hederman, taking a swing at the second delivered, the ball glanced to his nose, and he was dropped clean, the result a broken nose. Then in quick succession followed Carnegie Tech, West Virginia, and William and Mary, who went down in easy defeat before our gang, showing great form after the defeat handed out by Georgia Tech. These games were conspicuous because they showed that the gang had the batting eye on the ball again and were back to accustomed form before they hit the slump which followed the Easter respite. However, the University of Pennsylvania was the next to prove their undoing, ferhaps it was because they were on Franklin Field, where the Jinx has ever been against Navy. It was the first appearance of the Navy team away from the home lot, and the awe-inspiring sights of the big city seemed to distract their attention from the game. Penn was fast on the bases and taking advantage of the home surroundings, ran wild more or less for the first three in- nings. Kelly seemed to have an off day and the only flashes of fast play came in two doubles initiated by Hederman. Navy started a rally [■f. W.iJ» in the ninth but it was late and netted us but one run and two in- juries, Niemyer hurting his ankle and Humphreys wrenching his knee badly. The score, 8-3, was against ™ ■w. - v them but they learned a lesson Ba ,- ' iN! which stood them in good stead " against Army. The next game was with the Johns Hopkins aggregation, who, follow- m-sm ing the example of their lacrosse |BH| team, were defeated, the score 3-1. The game was not spectacular ex- cept for one play when Mills at second, pulled down a hot one off Sharrett ' s bat and forced Haytee at second. Then they followed quickly, in a row for Navy, all of them victories, over Swarthmore, Catholic Univer- sity, Gettysburg and St. John ' s College. The team was now set for Army.

And this was as it should have been, for Navy had the same crew which easily showed its stern to the picked crews of the United States rep- resented in The Pough- keepsie Regatta of 1921, and which included four of the World ' s Champs who represented Navy m the Olympic Regatta at Antwerp. The squad of eager huskies who ac- companied this super- man crew had been faith- ful understudies for three years, and that explains the successes of Navy ' s Junior and Third ' Var- sity Crews. The plebes took to the rowing machines in the Natatorium soon after the peal of the New Year ' s bells had died away, and early in Febru- ary the ' Varsity squad was called out. Daily training went on with rowing machines and the stationary barge until the weather grew less murky overhead and permitted the squad to practice on the river. Then the welcome sound of the coxswain ' s sharp, staccato voice and the plash, plash of the dip- ping sweeps brought joy to the winter-weary hearts of the Regiment. Captained by Clyde King, Navy ' s " best all- around athlete " of 1922, and under the tutelage of that old master of row- ing, " Dick " Glendon, the ' Varsity eights gained rhythm and power. Most capably looked after by " Young Dick " Glendon, the Plebes whipped into championship style for their class, and held that status all the season.

The ' Varsity eights ahead in a graceful, easy moving group; trailed by the watchful " Dart " containing the big megaphone, with " Dick " in back of it; followed, half a mile astern, by " Young Dick " , with the Plebes, — all made a never-to-be forgotten picture. As the daily workouts progressed, the crews lost the winter fat, im- proved in blade work and the body-swing rhythm, gained in endurance, and gave unmistakable signs of winning all the races which were listed on the hard schedule ahead. The racing season opened on April 29th. The Navy 2nd ' Varsity and 1st Plebe crews rowed in a triangular Henley distance race with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ' s 2nd ' Varsity; finishing in the above order; the respective times being S. 13 3 5 — 8:24 — 8:26. As this was the first race the Plebes had ever rowed, they were all Junior College Oarsmen, and the fact that they opened the season by winning in the Inter- mediate Class augured well for them. The ' Varsity race followed; the Navy crew winning easily by five lengths. A word concerning the excellent fighting spirit shown by M. I. T. is in order here. They work under a great deal of a handicap, academically and in the matter of boats, oars and coaches; so that the showing put up by them was excellent. As our guests in Bancroft Hall, we learned of many troubles and habits in common to both institutes. May 6th, the ' Varsity and 1st Plebe crews were scheduled to row triangular races against Harvard and Princeton at Cambridge, Massachusetts. For several reasons these races were unusually interesting: Boston was the home of " Dick " Glendon and it was the first time in twenty years he had brought a crew to the Charles. The great prestige of the Navy crews and the old rivalry between Navy and Princetoo oars- men, stimulated by the memory of their 1921 race, added to the general interest. All this drew an im- mense throng of rowing fans to the banks of the Charles and the Harvard bridge was loaded to Its straining pomt. The memory of the after-the-race speeches of " Dr. Spaeth, " " Dick " Glendon, and " Doug " Howard; the joke on Fitzpatrick (the Princeton Frosh coach I about " rocking the boat " and other incidents in connection with the trip will remain dear to the memory ot most of the squad.

THE plebes won their race in good seamanlike style with that undeniable powerful quarter- mile finish sprint. In winning this race The Plebes were really entitled to The 1922 Inter- collegiate Championship, as this very same Syracuse crew won the Freshman event at the Poughkeep- sie Regatta. The course was l-J -g miles and both Navy crews won by big margins. The time for the ' varsity race was 10.28, margin of victory seven lengths. Plebe time: 11.01 3 5, margin 2-3 2 lengths. Princeton finished second in both races. On May 13th the 1st and 2nd Plebe crews rowed a Henley dis- tance race against Washington Cen- tral High School, finishing in the above order. Time: 7. 45 — 7.55 — 8.15. On May 20th, Syracuse brought three good crews to the Severn, but the Navy crews proved a little bet- ter and we won all three races. The Syracuse ' varsity made their race especially interesting by s;taying with our regulars for three-fourths of the distance of two miles. In the Junior ' Varsity event, Kendall stroked his Navy eight to as pretty and as decisive a victory as has ever been seen down here against a Syracuse junior crew. i BoLLEs, Captain, ' 23 Briggs, Manager, ' 23 401 Mdt M MMt»MJ»MMJ»M » »J»MA JtM J»jt» J» J»J» J»J»- J»J»J»y» »J» f L v»r» trvtrv ' tr$r »r%rv ' r%rv ' trv v ' irv»rvvv v r trtrtrv iirvt ' v r vv r vv ' trtr rv ' vvvtrv v u ar vvvtrtrt urmrtr " i«»r..i ijii . 1 1 1 I " I — ((■ r ,-,y of World ll ' ii e rholo S,t ince) Navy Plehes Winning a Hot Race — ( ((■ IlenU-y The squad departed for Philadelphia on Thursday, May 2Sth. The squad made the Bellevue- Stratford its quarters, Friday saw the Navy crews on the water for morning and afternoon practice. This Regatta was replete with thrills. Several records for the course were broken. The 2nd. Varsity, 3rd. ' Varsity, and Plebe races were hotly contested and all competing crews were well bunched near the finish. It was another great day for the Navy. In addition to winning the major event of the long program in the good time of 6:28-1 5, we also took the contest for freshmen eights, leaving the Plebes as well as the ' Varsity with an immaculate record for the season. The Junior ' Varsity as well as the Plebe finish was a thriller. There is no question but what Kendall ' s crew would have won in clean, easy style had it not been for several unfortunate happen- ings. Besides losing their stakes boat and being put under handicap by the decidedly strong current, they got off to a poor start — one of the men jumping his slide entirely. The Princeton boat that finished a few feet ahead of them was Princeton ' s best ' Varsity. The Third ' Varsity lost to the only successful Harvard combination of the season. Our third boat had it out with all comers, and required many demonstrations of watermanship, grit, and game- ness from the Harvard crew before the finish line was crossed. Then came the hot June day practices in preparation for the great Poughkeepsie Regatta. " Dick " changed the order of the men in the boat, but it was still the same eight. This race has been pictured so well by one of the reporters on the scene that part of his account is quoted as giving a fair idea of the race. " That never-to-be-forgotten last half mile was not just one race alone, it was three distinct contests; the all-important, major battle between the Navy and Washington out there in front, the secondary struggle between Cornell and a suddenly inspired Syracuse crew for third laurels, and the desperate straining between Columbia and Pennsylvania to avoid bringing up the rear. Kendall ' s Second J ' arsity an Uncomfortable Close Second to Princeton 403 N TRACK THOUGH a major sport at the Academy, track has been struggling for the past few years to win the approbation which it merits and thus raise itself to the high standard of other sports when a choice between a baseball game and a track meet will be difficult. By dint of hard work and careful coaching, the Academy developed such a team for the year of 1922, well able to compete with the best, either ending the contest as the winner, or leaving behind that feeling that Navy was a foe worthy of merit, the aim of every team. Pittsburg was the first opponent scheduled for the season of 1922. Pittsburg brought a strong team, well balanced in all branches, but Navy proved a bit better and the result gave Navy the margin of points and Pittsburg an early train home. The meet proved the possi- bilities of our Plebe material, and the showing vvas most gratifying. Birthright, hitherto a dark-horse, in this meet broke the Naval Acade- my javelin record, adding another block N to the total. In days of old, Virginia was accustomed to win when they came up for a track meet but during the last three years, this streak has been upset. This year proved no exception and at the same time. Harvard took the count, even though Burke, the Harvard captain, did beat Eddie Curtis in a most remarkable mile race. Then Eddie came back and won the 880-yard event in proper fashion. Again the javelin record went when Leggett went Birthright one better, this record having now become subject to change without notice. Early in the season, the Penn Relays loomed up and Navy decided to send a team, not confident of winning, but a willing- ness to provide as much competition as possible being the outstanding aim. Much to our sur- prise, we won second place in the distance and sprint medleys, the half mile run of Curtis in the former, a superb race, having brought us rapidly to the front. In the two mile relay, our luck was not so good. In the mile relay, ours was third place, and might have been better had not Foss been blocked in the ' last Captain Curtis 405 I i v »,v w v nr„ „ „ „ „ ,„„ „ „ „ First Row, Left to Right: Wiedorn, Dodge, Opie, Huckins, Johnson, Carnev, Pullen, Clapp, Bare.

We did expect much of the Plebes in the Freshman relay. However, hard luck was ours. Hammond, while warming up, was run into and injured. Although pain- fully injured he ran, and we took third place in this event. Johns Hopkins was our next opponent on the cinders. Navy did not have much competition except in the " 220 " , when Clark of Hopkins steppe d out in great form and won easily. In this meet, another record went by the board when McLean cleared the bar in the pole vault at ll ' -ll- 3 8 " . Navy was easily the victor in the con- test and rolled up a large score. On the same day, the second team went to Washington to take part in the American Legion Games. Though pitted against first string teams from the other colleges, our representatives captured the Service Relay Race and incidentally brought back the " Washington Star " cup which went with the win. This meet proved that the Hustlers of the track squad had within their ranks men of first class caliber and likewise proved that the athletic strength of an institution lies in its " scrubs. " M.

The season was very successful from the point of wins but since Army, our greatest rival, defeated us in the final con- test. Navy did not reach the paramount point of success. Illness at the beginning of the season deprived us of Parr, the team ' s captain. Weakened by pneumonia, his fate was to watch his team go down before the Army quintet. And trips away from home didn ' t help much because we lost Harris at the Pennsylvania game in Phila- delphia when, with a broken arm, the plucky lad played just as hard as ever to win for Navy, when finally the Blue and Red topped us by one pomt. Deprived of two regulars by injuries, luck worked in another direction for Navy. Lieutenant Allen, now filling Billy Lush ' s shoes, counted noses in his squad and with McKee fixed in his place, chose Shapley, Walshe, Parish, and Signer from the " Plebes " Allen, Head Coach First Row, Left to R ' ght: Magley, Parsons, Rhoades, Scheibeler, Ekstrom, Opie, Ostertag, Cullen.

Fourth Row: Mills, Harris, Parrish, Jordan, Kimes. lifi =ii The Tip-off, Lafayette Game to alternate on the Armory floor, bringing to the front Shapley, with yet three years to play, one of the most promising basketeers who has ever graced a Navy guard ' s position. The opening game of the season saw the St. Francis set in town. Except for Dale Harris, the Navy team was new material, since Parr and McKee were still relaxing from a strenuous football season. The game was fast throughout but Navy won easily. The next game proved easier. Western Maryland showed much speed in getting under way and hardly had the game opened, when Western Maryland had two goals to Navy ' s " swabo ' , but time told, and when the game finished Navy led by thirty-one points. Then followed Washington College and Manhattan College. Neither came up to the caliber of the Navy five and our team annexed two more scalps. Things had progressed far too smoothly and utter confidence had achieved its parasitic deadli- ness when Duquesne University from Pittsburg sent its representatives to meet us. Before this speedy team, Navv received its first jolt of the season when it went down to a count ot 28 to 26 in a game decided " in an extra period. Just as the gong sounded the knell of the second half, Cher- dini, the visitor ' s crack pivot man dropped in the two-pomter that tied the score at 25 all. 1 hree minutes of the extra period passed without a score. Then Duquesne took the lead and a shot from midfield by Cingolani put the game on ice. The Duquesne game taught Navy a stern lesson and the good eflFects appeared in the contest with Knox College. It was a big reversal for Navy and the playing was the best exhibition seen to date. Knox had a speedy group 6f players, well-versed in all the fine points of the game, but Navy was equal to the task, a new spirit had filled each individual, and they went after the game in masterful fashion. However, the opponent was worthy and merits great praise. McKee shone in this game and of the twenty-eight points scored, McKee chalked up twenty-two, sixteen out of nineteen possible from the free-throw work. However, the real game of mid-season was that with the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. For the second consecutive year. Navy lost to the Red and Blue combi- nation by one point. Foul goals were the ¥. s,G AvLT, Assistant Coach deciding " factor. The Navy five played in Barnes I r 410 j»j» j»y»j» j»j»j»j»j»d» jjl 4 the finest form of the season. McKee was undoubtedly the best man on the floor, al- though Carmack became the hero for his team when with one minute to go, he netted a goal for Penn on a long shot from the side of the court. However, sweet revenge was to be ours. One of the finest incidents of this game was the gameness displayed by Harris, who having slipped and broken his elbow, con- tinued to play and finished the game, oblivi- ous in the heat of play to his very painful injury. Our next game was with the Yankee Athletic Club of Washington. Heralded as being among the best of the eastern profes- sional teams, the visitors offered but little resistance to the smooth team work and accurate shooting of the Navy five. Navy ' s team, in this game, was indeed a makeshift five since three regulars were nursing injuries sustained at Philadelphia, but at no time did the Yankee aggregation take the offensive Walshe that had carried them to the top of profes- Parrish sional ranks. Now Duquesne won over Navy by two points, Lafayette won from Villanova College and Villa- nova had beaten Duquesne, so thus matters stood when Lafayette arrived in town. Well, on paper it looked as though we were licked, but a Navy team is never thus if fight and pluck count for any- thing, and when the final gong sounded, Navy had decisively trimmed Lafayette by a large score. However, the score does not tell the true story but while Lafayette endeavored to contest every point. Navy went just a bit better and took advantage of every chance to stop the sturdy Lafayette offense. It was a game free from fouls, easy to watch, and " three strate " for Navy over Lafayette. Pennsylvania defeated Navy in Philadelphia a few weeks before by one point. Navy staged a come-back and when we left the Armory, it was Navy 31, Pennsylvania 20, a most decisive victory, a triumph over the previous contest. The Navy team, looking for a chance to clean a few slates made the most of every offering. McKee, as in the former game, played a very good game and was the foundation of the Navy offense. Shapley was a bulwark on the offense and proved very slippery to the Penn team. Walshe made a very pretty shot at long distance and showed himself generally good. All in all, the team played a ve.y orood game and deserves all the merits of the victory. Undoubtedly, the fastest basketball ' •ame of the season was with Georgetown, and the Navy was just able to nose them out by a score of 37-33. Navy, at first, seemed rather sluggish against the fast quintet Georgetown produced and trailed during most of the game. However, the final punch was there, and Navy won in the closing minutes of a fast finish. In order then followed Bucknell, West Virginia, Fordham, Delaware, and Washington and Jef- ferson. All succumbed before the Navy team, in very tight games but Navy showing better fight in the second halves, was able to maintain the pace at a bit faster clip, and the Navy combination felt fit to meet the Army until Catholic University loomed on the horizon. The final game before the Army met us. Navy lost to Catholic University by a score of 21 to 19. Starting with our second team, the visitors proved better than expectation, and when the first half ended, they had a nine point lead, 15 to 6. The Navy regulars took the floor in the second but the lead was too great. Thus the season ended. The Regiment was on edge for the Army game and it proved to be two things, a stellar game, and an exhibition of one of the greatest fives in the game, the Army basketball team.

Thus about the first of March we find George busy whipping into shape another winning combination, to which the 1922 aggregation was no exception. The first opponent on the schedule was Maryland State and when the referee ' s whistle opened that game, the team was ofF to make it another invincible season. The State team proved easy enough and when the sun sank low, Navy was on top 16-0. Then came Cornell, who, with wire-masks, head-gears, and shoulder-pads, prepared to humiliate Navy. Superior playing showed its worth and it ended another Navy victory. Navy 20, Cornell 1. The following Saturday found the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania clamoring at our gates. ' Twas terrible to be foiled but the boys had decided beforehand that it must not be defeat. George ' s boys were there with the same spirit and a better scoring eye. Navy survived the crisis unscathed with a score, 17-0. len invaded the Lehigh Valley. It was Cap ' t-elect Zeke Soucek. _ _ .. the first game away and with such a strong opponent proved exceedingly interesting. Navy started off in the usual fashion and soon scored a tally. Lehigh soon retaliated and when the half ended, the score was Lehigh 2, Navy 1. Something was said to the team because they came back in the next halt and within fifteen seconds netted a goal. Five more minutes and Navy took the lead. To be one goal ahead was small, they added another. But again Lehigh took the offensive and put a fast one in the sacred net That was a very poor showing for the Navy team and in a fierce burst of play, Navy scored another goal and soon the contest ended. Navy 5, Lehigh 3. It was a spectacular game and another big dav in Navy lacrosse annals. Flushed with the victory over Lehigh, Navy felt ready to meet Penn State to avenge the recent defeat in football. State lost to be sure. The game was stubborn but our team had more than an edge and Penn State left, defeated 13-0. „ , . , . ,- Then came our ancient rivals in the gentle game. Johns Hopkins forces came to Annapolis with the express purpose of carrying back the lion ' s share of the score. Their defense put up great opposition and not until the middle of the period did we score, but once started, we counted tor tive before the half ended. This didn ' t seem to satisfy the Hamaneggers for they took the held witli blood in their eyes. It was a fast and furious half, both teams displaying a technique seldom equalled by college teams. Hopkins put one past the inside line while Navy checked up four and with a score of 9-1, Navy had a claim on the Intercollegiate title. Not satisfied with collegiate laurels, Mt. Washington was taken on. 1 he HiUmen brought down a formidable squad with a will to win. An early score aroused the Navy ire and before the il Till- Uam-an Eggcrs in ac i 2 Tar w rtr »rtr»rtrTarvtrtr9r f :f " t | S?f ..f i ' i m T ' f - Coach Finlayson half ended, we had made three goals. After a well-merited rest, the teams took the field for the decisive half. For the first time in years, Navy was held scoreless. The hillmen played a purely defensive game built around their goal keeper. He was a wonder. Before the final whistle, Mt. Wash- ington slipped another over, making it 3-2, though Navy was on top. It was a fitting game on which to drop the curtam of a successful season.

The increased interest in this sport was plainly manifested by the turn-out. Everyone of the squad selected worked hard as the schedule was by far the toughest ever undertaken and the holes left by such men as Zotti, Latta, O ' Donnell and Sebald had to be filled. Around O ' Regan, Mathews, and Leach, veterans of last year ' s team as a nucleus, a clever, hard-hitting team was rounded out, and February the seventeenth found every man in the pink of condition. Since Villanova cancelled their meet, the first meet was with Penn State, and consider- ing the adverse conditions under which it had to be fought, it was anything but an easy nut to crack. Hayes, Goldwaithe and Kurtz went right to work and scored decisions. Leach lost on a decision after somewhat of a dispute be- tween the judges. Next Lyon, eager for revenge, knocked his man all around the ring scoring a technical K. 0. in the third round. O ' Regan, needless to say, added another to Navy ' s list by out-boxing his rather clever opponent. The next bout furnished the excitement as Madeira towered head and shoulders over Mathews, but " Bo " undaunted knocked him down in the first round only to have a very close decision go agamst him. The next Saturday brought M. L T., and despite the fact that they didn ' t gain a decision, the result was not indicative of their sportsmanship and fighting q ualities. On March 3rd, the picked team representing the Intercollegiate Champions of Canada made their second invasion. Again the triumvirate Hayes, Goldwaithe and Kurtz won their bouts in i ' Captain O ' Regan f ' W m rvy.yy .yyy - -y ' . . , order bj- decision, each fighting cleverly, outpunching and out-generaling their opponents. The 145- Ib. class brought two old opponents together in " Red " Brewer and Leach. Brewer anxious to reverse last year ' s outcome and Leach anxious to repeat. Brewer had learned his lesson and cleverly avoided Leach ' s right, boxing throughout their bout, the decision going to this plucky little Northern- er at the end. Lyon gained a decision, and then a big boy from Toronto named Shute crawled into the ring with O ' Regan. Shute having won a decision from Army ' s light-heavy was no easy con- tender, but Mickey ' s superior footwork won him the decision. Stolz, as Mathews w as out with iniuries, boxed heavy, but the Canadians ' superior ring knowledge gave him the decision. On the last meet of the season with U. of Penn rested the Intercollegiate Championship and although it was close throughout Navy being without the services of her captain, O ' Regan, her superior brand of ring tactics and clever punching placed her at the long end of the score. The first six bouts were evenly divided, Hayes, Kurtz and Crommelen losing while Goldwaithe, Leach and Lyon kept things even, leaving to Mathews the winning of the meet. Cowell, the big Quaker, fresh from his victories over Madeira of Penn State and Mulligan of Army was confident, but Mathews was out for the championship and coaxed by soft words from " Spike " was more than equal to his undertaking. With his decision, came the Intercollegiate Championship thereby mak- ing us the proud possessor of the title of International Intercollegiate Boxing Champions. To either ' ' Spike " or the development of this team, or to the men themselves that made this victorious season possible, too much credit cannot be given. With the loss ot only two men by graduation, the prospects for next season are more than good and with the regiment behind the boys it may be assured another season filled with many Navy victories. Prepare to Swat — Socko! i r »frftr ar»rtrtr»rartrtr rur tr rmrtrtr»rwtrftrv WRESTLING SINCE the advent of wrestling at the Naval Academy prospects for a win- ning team were never darker than at the beginning of last season. Graduation had claimed men from threeweightsand Academ- ics took its toll of two more. Ex-captain " Thug " Morgan and B. E. Wilson, both ot whom were undefeated during their wrestling careers, succumbed to the ancient but infal- lible law " bone, bust and bilge. " " Thug ' s " unsuccessful tilt with the erudite administrators of knowledge proved to be " Skag " Arnold ' s good fortune for ' twas he who was selected to pilot our bone-breaking squad, manned by a green crew, through the turbulent waters of a hard schedule. Ihe job was a difficult one but " Skag " proved equal to the situation and performed his task with assiduity deserving the highest merit. Competent instruction by Coach Schutz and Mr. Lynch, together with the whole hearted effort of the squad, turned out a formidable, though unseasoned, array of grapplers which far surpassed our most optimistic expectations. Lehigh, our first adversary was quite in accord with re-estimating the seemingly gloomy situation after their scalp had been added to the unbroken four year string of which Navy boasts. The second meet of the season, that with Washington and Lee, was hardly more than a joust in preparation for the more serious conflict with Penn State. Though the Nittany Lions made an excellent showing, they scarcely deserved the anxiety occasioned by their rumored prowess. During this meet we came to a full realization that in the person of one " Mo " Harrison were embodied all the characteristics of a Tartar. Naito, State ' s world-beating Jap, was the third man to be excused Captain Arnold Coach Schutz i i m 416 from further punishment after he had reposed quietly on his shoulders in compliance with " Mo ' s " two-minute rule. Indiana University, the far famed Middle-westerners, dipped their colors to Navy, and attention was focused on West Virginia, especially " Scottie " Hough, their one-hundred-twenty- five pound man, who made his debut mto wrestling as a Midshipman but later joined the ranks of the Mountaineers. However, " Scottie " learned to his sorrow that Mr. Schutz, who had made him, could also break him. It took Timberlake and his side chancery just one minute and fifty-four sec- onds to end their part of the argument. The last home meet was rather disappointing from a stand- point of interest due to the weakened condition of the M. I. T. team. At this stage of the season success had forced foreboding into the background, and all hands were in high spirits for invading the camp of the Intercollegiate Champions. Unfortunately, Nemesis, in the form of Cornell, chose to take a hand in casting our horoscope. The battle was an exciting one of closely contested bouts, a changing advantage, and doubtful results even to the last decision of the Referee. Ericsson clinched his captaincy for 1924 by completing a second season of continuous victories, and Arnold gave an excellent demonstration of his equestrian ability before pinning the shoulders of his opponent to the mat. The final tilt of scales, advantage, gave the meet to Cornell by a score of 13 to 11 making the first black mark on Navy ' s record for five years, and left the squad with the determination to re-establish a similar record and then to break it. Here ' s to them; may their efforts be well rewarded. Lehigh .... Washington and Lee Penn State Indiana West Virginia . M. I. T. .

Swimming has gained great- ly in popularity so that now it is a top-notch attraction during the winter months, cramped as accommodations have been. However, with steam shovels busy excavating, the prospects of a new swimming pool have been confirmed, and then, with a pool, conforming to intercollegiate rules, our aggregation ot mermen can go after greater laurels than those already acquired, matched against the strongest college swimming teams. The " plebe " class brought us several swimmers of high calibre and when our relay team was rounded into shape, the combination clipped the Academy mark twice. With the majority of this year ' s team, and a new swimming pool, the Inter- collegiate marks may well tremble when the next Navy team takes the water. The opening meet saw Syracuse with a sturdy team ready for the gun. Syracuse was outclassed somewhat and all first and second places went to Navy except the plunge. This event, now not officially on the Intercollegiate program was undertaken at the request of the visitors. The final score tells the story, since it was Navy 43, Syracuse 9. Well, next week they repeated in a triangular meet and at the finish Navy was forty points to the good, M. I. T., counted twelve, and Johns Hopkins five. The meet started speedily when in the I ♦ •.♦ • • ♦v - f» -•y ,♦. vuftrwvtrvtrvtrtrtri ' trtr r first event, the relay team. Boiling, Wycoff, Kanakaniii and Rule tied the Academy record and made four block-N ' s. We dropped our only first place to Stewart of Tech, a shade better than Bearce. Kanakanui, recovered from illness, contributed his share in the relay event and took first in the back- stroke. Rule continued his show of speed and besides his part in the relay, captured the SO-yard dash. It took a little more effort to sink Rutgers because they were exceedingly hard to drown. In this meet, so pressing was the contest that three records went by the board. Rule nosed out Boiling in the 50-yard dash and broke the record by three-tenths of a second. The relay team composed now of Boiling, Dyer, Sinclair, and Rule took three-tenths of a second off the 160-yard event and Von Stanley of Rutgers lowered the Academy plunge record by two-fifths of a second. The Central Y. M. C. A. team from Brooklyn was next in line. KifFe was the outstanding star for the visitors and well deserves his title of national junior champion. KifFe took Winkjer ' s measure in the 100-yard breast stroke swim and repeated in the 150-yard back stroke. The final score was 35 to 18 in our favor. Next week was to be the big carnival when Yale would grace our midst. And they did. Yale refused to let Rule, our speedy " plebe " swim and with no plunger, we spotted them these points before the meet. Boiling took the 50-yard dash for Navy, and Marshal, of " ' ale took the 440 with Davis, Navy second. Swazey, Yale ' s plunger, knocked two and four- fifths seconds off our tank record. First and second places for Yale in the back stroke and one hun- dred yard swim put the meet on ice. The crowning event was the relay when Jeliffe of Yale nosed out Kanakanui and closed the meet, 45 to 17, for Yale. Thus Navy closed the season, disheartened to be sure because o f this last defeat, but never- theless successful. With few losses through graduation, great possibilities for all those on the squad, we hope to see the next season with a clean slate, a fitting dedication of the new pool. Syracuse M. I.

The Philadelphia Turnverein opened the season here and gave us the stifFest contest of the season, indeed, in six seasons, but the final score was in Navy ' s favor. Next came the University of Pennsylvania and their defeat was easy, inasmuch as their team was crippled by previous injuries. However, they were a worthy opponent, and the score is in no way a criterion of their gameness. Right in order they followed then, dropping every- thing before our well-developed team. Dart- mouth and M. I. T. succumbed to the team ' s scalping knife, the latter by the largest score. With the Intercollegiates at hand, the season ended. But not before Navy proved supremacy. Representatives came from Harvard, Dart- mouth, Yale, Princeton, University of Penn- sylvania, Massachusetts Institute of Tech- nology, and New York University. For the third successive year, " Jack " Pearson, the the Navy captain took the All-Round championship. Wood proved to be another stellar gymnast and his work in the Intercollegiates was worthy of the highest merit. Competition was keen and places were won by tenths of points but the final score proved Navy the winner by a large margin. Captain Pearson Coach Mang FENCING FENCING, a sport combining quickness of thought and action, fills an important function in athletics because it gives the man, not physically qualified for the major sports, an opportunity to coordinate mind and body in sport, otherwise denied. Navy ' s position in the fencing world has been high and for many years we have cap- tured the " Little Iron Man " , symbolic ot the Intercollegiate championship, a beautiful addition to our athletic trophies. By graduation, we lost most of our regular team but their runners-up were able to fill the holes and under the guidance of Captain Grandfield, Navy ' s team was able to defeat all contenders after an initial setback by the J. Sanford Saltus Fencing Club, of whose members Guider and Shears, former Navy men, proved to be the greatest point-winners. Then they followed in order: Cornell, the University of Pennsylvania and M. I. T. in a dual meet, Columbia, Yale, theWashington Fencing Club, and Virginia, all victories for Navy. Captain Grandfield Yale, no doubt, gave us the greatest com- Coach Heintz petition. Yale, too, had beaten Army and the meet proved to be the real test of our strength. The final score, however, gave our team two points of " velvet " so that on paper, the Kaydets appeared defeated. With this state of affairs. Navy will enter the Intercollegiates and we are confident that the " Little Iron Man " will remain with us and that the Army will again feel the sting of Navy victory. w » -Qi ' . ti Ai; (1 V U ' 422 U » y x V « . TENNIS TENNIS, among the many sports at the Naval Academy, is one of the few that the officer can continue throughout his entire life. In the game itself, there are inherent advantages that afford, even in moments of recreation, an exercise of keen analysis, the use of definite tactics, and an absolute con- centration of purpose — all qualities so es- sential to the officer. Tennis here has developed somewhat along this line and though many play the game, it has not produced the stars we should have and so from a lack of material, the building of a team has suffered. However, with our team and a difficultschedule,wewentthrough the season meeting very capable adversaries. The season, however, got away to a bad start due to the added attraction of Easter leave, and after the initial set-to with Johns Hopkins, Swarthmore, Harvard, and Prince- ton took our measure. Then the team showed a flash of tennis and we won from George Washington, only to be defeated by Southern California the same day. The next meet with Lehigh we divided evenly. After Captain Harshman matches with Lafayette and the University Coach Sturdy of Pennsylvania the season closed. The season could not be called successful but we have prospects for better years to come. By graduation, Rockev, Waidlick, and Fitzhugh will leave our midst but we still have the new skipper, " Toke " Harshman, and Shoup, and with the wealth of raw, but earnest material brought out this year, an added interest from the Regiment, which viewed the exhibition matches arranged here, we hope to develop a successful team. « ' .r . tfr .r .r«r r«r r rtf. SOCCER JUDGING from the unprecedented success of the past season, soccer is not only here to stay but the Acad- emy promises to rank among the fore- most in this sport. To put it on the map required several years of persist- ent effort on the part of those inter- ested, especially Professor Sturdy, the representative, and Coach Taylor. With new material, Coach Taylor whipped a team into shape in a very short time, and if individual skill was lacking, team work was ever present, which in the final analysis is the aim of every well-developed athletic group. However, the middle of the season saw individual skill in its place, a result of conscientious effort. More- over, the Lehigh and Pennsylvania games uncovered stars which rivaled the best of those who played against us. Probably, the outstanding player was " Archie " Randolph, whose dex- terous footwork, clever headwork, and diligent teamwork called forth praise from opponents and spectators. The game with Penn was without doubt the best and most important of the season. Al- though the loser, six additional periods were necessary to decide the contest in favor of one of the best teams in the game, runnerup for the Intercollegiate championship. The season of 1922 saw the sport in its youth. Of the regulars, only three are lost by grad- uation, so with the wealth of good material remaining, under the leadership of the new captain, " Pat " Creehan, wonderful prospects are in store for next year.

The team lost by a reasonably small score to the Quantico Marines, who are probably the best shots in the world. An attack of " buck " fever lost the match with the 71st Infantry of New York, thereby sending " Little David " , the rifle trophy, to its original home for the first time in seven years. Then came the match with the Washington cadets, coached by Stokes, once of 1922, now the world ' s cham- pion shot, but our victory was overwhelming. Next followed matches with Georgetown, George Washington, and the University of Pennsylvania, the small-bore Intercollegiate champions, in each case our first team lead- ing, our second team third. Stokes himself fired with his high-class team-mates in the George Washington match but Cutts made a higher score than the champion. This victory though not officially recognized, made us practically Intercollegiate champions with the service rifle, certainly no mean accom- plishment. The team that performed this was an entirely new team and was developed to represent us in the National Rifle Matches to be held at Camp Perry, since all eighteen veterans of the cham- pionship team of the previous year were not allowed to miss two practice cruises in succession. That this green team came through as it did reflects great credit on the coach. Lieutenant Com- mander Denny, on their own grit and perseverance, and leaves great hopes for the future. Capt-Elect Thayer Coach Denny INTERCLASS ATHLETICS INTERCLASS athletics are encouraged and practised more at the Naval Academy than at any other institution of learning, we believe. There is no doubt but that the wonderful results ob- tained here surpass even the fondest hopes of the most enthusiastic supporters of the system. Inter- class sports have shown beyond a doubt that they cannot be excelled as a means of buildmg up and keeping sound the morale of a body of men. Such sports, by their invigorating influence on athletics in general, have done more to spread satisfaction throughout the Regiment than could possibly be attained by a series of brilliant varsity victories. Very few men, say two or three a season, ever make a varsity squad from an interclass team. However, interclass athletics do exist, as all athletics, primarily to stimulate competition, and to train the players along the lines of fair play about the development of physique which can come only from clean living. Interclass athletics offer many things to the ordinary man who is not of varsity caliber. They have roused a dormant desire of achievement, making inexperienced men come out and fight for positions on the class teams. Many of these men had never realized the value of athletics, and the feeling of accomplishment which is derived from winning his numerals or even playing in a game. The enthusiasm connected with the competition for the Harvard Shield only goes to show that inter- class athletics will never be abolished. Without training-tables, at least something to work for to make a varsity squad, the class teams give up the Sunday afternoons of the several seasons to represent their classes and to add points to the class score to win the shield. During our sojourn here, the class of 1922 won the shield three years in succession, and last vear we were the runners-up. The class games are ideal sport for Sun- day afternoons when time hangs heavy for the non-athletic timber of the Regiment. Class games are not bothered by the technique of the varsity sport but they might be said to be the happy medium between the backlot and the varsity. Where the game of basketball, boxing, wrestling or baseball suffers much from the critical eye of the referee, taking much of the interest out of the game itself, class sports give the chance to express opinions freely and enthusiasm is keyed to the utmost. Interclass athletics are thus an important adjunct to the athletic system inaugurated at the Academy and given a chance to grow, they should prove an ideal supplement to the training in physical ' development used here because they approach the ideal of universal physical training by offering to all, especially those not of varsity caliber, an opportunity to compete in sports, a funda- mental condition in the ' development of a leader; an opportunity to foster the spirit of altruism, the essential of an officer.

So, too, does the credit for the many victories of navy teams find its way, Hke the stresses and strains of a gun in action, down through the fighting units to the platform on which these units stand — the hustlers. As Kipling has said, " you never can tell ' till you ' ve tried them " . How well this applies to the second team — to those men who for some small reason are never known except that they were " on the squad " . Try them in your mind. Are they, because they never have the actual glory of a victory given directly to them, any less responsible than their more fortunate fellows who win the thanks of the navy for the results they have gained in the field .? Is it not harder to go out night after night, working, taking the hard knocks, and at the same time knowing that the only result of their efforts is to force some member of the ' varsity to fight harder for his place.? They are the human dummies who give their strength, their time, their bodies, that the ' varsity team may have opposition to keep them on the jump. : ' :;7 4: . ■•; «EM«»itvv«rt " HElNih ' ,. iM itRMAN, Tlirt-t ' Yfars Scrub Catcher — .hid Also in Basketball rO O ' Human Dummies " Ict JCCKlgVIrKgVI -ga roSa Ji ' rv r i YrN J o J f « f f ♦ « f f GLEE CLUB THE 1923 Revue was perhaps the most elaborate and ambitious ever attempted by the Musical Clubs and its success exceeded the fondest hopes of its promoters. The show opened with " Blue and Gold " sung by the Glee Club, the audience standing. This act was followed by " On the Good Ship ' Pinafore ' " . Dyer, Ashton, Kent, and Naquin were splendid in their parts. Next came a solo by Schenck and a piano solo by Hodgkiss accompanied by Messmer on the violin. Both of these were well received and encores were demanded. Hight and Momm in " See Saw " gave an unusual exhibition of music on hand saws. Then came a Japanese sketch by the Mandolin Club followed by " Les Chats Annapolitaines " with McCutcheon as " Ignatz Mouse " and eight " Krazy Kats " with mandolins. The Glee Club then came out again and sang three numbers. This was fol- lowed by " Pass in Review " . Al Jolsen (Walsh), the Duncan sisters (Beecher and Kirten), Eddie Cantor " (Brendel), Rodolf Valentino and wife (Congdon and Pearce), and Will Rogers with a beauti- ful " chorus " were all on hand to show off their latest songs, steps, and clever lines. The Jazz sup- ported this act in real Broadway style with their jazziest of jazz and many a fair drag whispered to her escort, " Why don ' t they have music like that at the hops.?

J ' ' ' - USHERS THE Ushers in all their splendor, consisting of one sword belt, many brass buttons, and a homely countenance, constitute one of the big: attractions of that magnificent edifice — the chapel. If not attrac- tion, then at least ' amusement, for many a drag has had to smother an undignified giggle at seeing an Ush- er about face just in time to receive a head-on collision. But the wear- ers of the N crossed skags seem to like it — possibly because J. P. J. can ' t tell tales. RECEPTION COMMITTEE THIS year has seen the rise of the Reception Committee to a position of far more importance than it has held in the past. That this should be so is altogether fitting and proper, for when one realizes that each year over a hundred teams come down to meet Navy in some branch of athlet- ics and that their opinion of the Regiment is formed to a large extent by the manner in which they are received, it is seen that no little amount of responsibility rests on the shoulders of the men who compose this committee. A large part of this responsibility has fallen on the chairman of the committee, R. L. Dennison, to whom a great deal of credit is due for the splendid manner in which he has performed a diflficult and trying task. ».n»» » T«r« «r.r«r.r« ' «r« v ' tf ' « v. CHOIR HERE they are!

WITHINGTON, Editor-in-Chief In the monumental task of producing an annual, the responsibility necessarily falls upon one man, and in that man ' s ability to plan, co-ordinate, and produce lies the success or failure of the publication. That man is the editor. And what are the requisites of a successful editor.? Ihe ability to plan with farsighted- ness, learning from the errors of predecessors and anticipat- ing future emergencies; a keen insight into the natural talents, and abilities of those about him in order that he may choose wisely his staff; the tact and diplomacy of a statesman to secure privileges and divert wrath; a trained intelligence that instantly chooses the grain from the chaff; and last, but most important of all, a spirit of courage and perseverance that will never rest in peace until the task given him has been finished. In other words we present " Freddy, J6 our Editor-in-Chief. ., 0 ' Lt.-Comdr. E. A. LOFQUIST The position of advisor and general supervisor of the ' 23 " Lucky Bag " was given to Lieutenant-Commander E. A. Lofquist, and as the " Bag " gradually took shape throughout the year, we became increasingly aware of our good fortune in having such an authority as the controlling factor in our work. Commander Lofquist brought to our aid a wealth of knowledge in regard to the choice, assemblage, and presen- tation of material and his advice has been indispensable in making the " Bag " possible. His ready sympathy and under- standing of our troubles helped a great deal to overcome the obstacles made by the none too lenient Academic and Execu- tive schedules, and the staff appreciates greatly the part played by Commander Lofquist in making this annual possible. W. C. FOWLER, Business Manager The man who gets the money and pays the bills — that ' s the Business Manager. Upon him devolves the responsibility of being a lawyer, banker, printer, binder, typist, and diplomatist " par excellence, " for his task is to prove to the level-headed business man the importance of advertising in the annual, and Wendell has made the " Annual of the Navy " known in every business from New York to Honolulu, Halifax to Great Harbor. The battle-scarred Corona is now at rest, but the " Lucky Bag " is a permanent testimony to his faithfulness, energy, and business ability. " Tony, get those letters off tonight; Jack, check over the cuts, we ' re ninety-five cents overcharged; hey, Fred, just figured out how we can save a hundred and four dollars; no more color plates, Val; I ' ll see you at the hop — dragging heavy.

We feel real regret that space prevents a more adequate statement of our appreciation of the kindnesses of the many who have contributed. To the following our sincere thanks are due: Mr. A. Ford DuBois, President of the DuBois Press, has stood by us like an Academy alumnus. Without his expert advice and professional knowledge we would have been helpless. He has contributed far more in personal attention and unselfish service than we can ever repay. Mr. J. J. Sher, of the Bureau of Engraving, Inc., worked out the design of the book. Mr. E. W. Palmer, of the J. F. Tapley Company, has contributed extensively, giving us the benefit of his personal attention and experience in the binding of the book. Mr. Robert Bennett, of the White Studio, has been an unselfish mine of information and constructive suggestion. To him belongs the credit for the invention of the new photographic process by which the Yard Views were made. The Superintendent and the Commandant have furnished suggestions and help, while the Executive Officer has been lenient and very reasonable in his criticisms of the material for the book. Miss Marilyn Miller very kindly posed for the picture of the ring girl. Miss Marie Moran contributed the cleverly executed painting for the class division page. Lieutenant Commander Henry F. Reuterdahl gave much of his time for a compensation almost laughable, it was so small, to the preparation and painting of the spirited frontispiece. Commanders H . D. Cooke and If ilbur R. Fan Auken made the New Navy Section possible by their contributions of photographs and pictures. Comtnander Fan Auke?i loaned us his valuable water color of the destroyer off the Dal- matian coast for reproduction. Admiral Moffett and the Bureau of Aeronautics aided Mr. Reuter- dahl in his painting and provided us with many photographs. The Naval Air Station at Coco Solo voluntarily furnished us the aerial view of the ' D E LAM ' ARE dnd the NORTH DAKOTA in Gatun Locks. Lieutenant C. C. Carmine obtained and secured permission for us to use the photographs ot target practice. Stuart Hyde Hazvkins illustrated the class history and made the Academic draw- ings, standing by with unshaken loyalty after his own misfortune. Mr. Daniel of the New York HERALD gave us permission to use excerpts from his account of the Army-Navy football game. Miss JVorthington, the Superintendent ' s stenographer, has typewritten untold thousands of well- nigh indecipherable words for the Bag. Miss Patricia Patterson presented us with the excellent drawings of girls presented in the feature section. Mr. Jf ' inston Churchill, Class of 1894, sent us an account of the beginnings of crew at the Naval Academy. Mr. Strickland Gillilan paid us compli- ments in his fine poem which none of us deserve. To those first and under classmen listed below, we are indebted for many hours of patient, hard work. FIRST CLASS Abercrombie Day Briggs Brendel Cooper, H. M.

To two thousand odd midshipmen, the Log means a Friday night untrammeled with the Nav or Juice or Steam or Math of the morrow. It means thoughts of life, news, prof notes, and athletics, pillowed in the soothing breast of Dame Humor, who drives away their cares and leaves them ready for the word battle with their sisters in the week-end that follows. To these same " sisters " , the Log is a beloved link which connects them with the almost closed corporation of life at the Academy. To the rest of the five thousand outside subscribers, officers in the fleet, or friends at home, the Log is the pulse of the Academy. Mark XI of the Log has been more than these things. Further than feel the pulse of the hydra- headed Regiment, it has tried to reach the heart and to control that pulse. This is a very difficult thing to do. There are those of us who have not liked this attempt. But in several instances, the Log was highly successful. There have been editorials which, though they were not interesting to many, hit a nail or two on the head and succeeded in driving it where it belonged. There have been other departures which have enhanced this last Mark of the Class of ' 23. And the Log as a whole has continued to be the student weekly of the country which has most successfully combined humor with news and literature. The circulation says so. The Editor and the Staff have just completed a year upon which they can look back and feel a well merited pride. We see these men in the group above. Who are they, who have, each week, supplied seven thousand people with news and thought and clever absurdity.? They are not mental giants. They are not well paid geniuses. They are average midshipmen who have realized the reward of work well done, of service rendered, without thought or possibility of remuneration or even great recog- nition. They are part of that spirit which makes the Academy and the Navy a place for a ma i, and a man who will give for the glory of the Navy. Standing: McIsaac, Stevens, Keith, Northcltt, Dlsineerre.

" Just so is the First Class German with regard to the three years of hop activities at the Academy. It is looked forward to during the entire sojourn in Bancroft Hall, and back upon forever as a climax to four hard (and yet, too, glorious) years. Don ' t you remember how as a Youngster you sneaked over into one of the rooms on the side toward the gym where you could steal a glimpse of the exotic splendor of the terrace which some good genius had transformed into a miniature fairyland.? And then how you crept down into the basement and snatched away a group of cakes, a wealth of grape juice, and an abundance of ice cream.? But that is all over and now we are to have one of our very own! As a progressive organization our class has been the instigator of a number of departures from custom and precedent. (For example, the Ring Dance and the many attendent innovations.) Under the able pilotage of the " Prince of Jungle Dancers " , George Castera, his tiny band of braves who make up the committee have beaten loudly on the tom-toms of originality, beauty, and splendor. As a result of their tireless efforts the stage is all set for a wonderful time to be " had by all " . Because of the fact ' 23 will no longer be midshipmen but ensigns ad gyrene lieutenants, this year German bids fair to surpass all others that have preceded it. The class knows what George can do, for the Ring Dance stands out as the best hop that has ever been pulled off here in our time, anyway — until now, and because of his success in that it has been one grand case of " Let George do it " ever since. We believe he has done it this time, too. Life has been said to be a series of sensations— the pendulum swings from one extreme to the other. So from a protracted era of Fidelity and Obedience what more fitting swing could there be than one into the realm of the other extreme — joy, pleasure and mirth ? But soon all the " fireworks " are over. You have walked home with Her ' neath the mellow moon of a cruiseless June (at last). All is over now. But we are sure that there will be reserved a lasting abode in the inner shrine of your most cherished memories for this, OUR last dance together. 440 jm J» j j»jmjtj»j j»j» »JHfit ' First Row, Left to Right: Glass, Peterson, McAuliffe, Layne, Rhodes, Benton, McKee, Billings.

Little Rollo is going to a hop where as one of the members of the Hop Committee he will dance with all of the visiting and local sad eggs, and converse with all the dowagers. When the officer ' s wife with whom he is dancing says as is her custom — , " You don ' t like to dance with an old lady like me, do you.? " he will gallantly reply, ' ' You do awfully well. Why I could almost think I was dancing with a girl. " Such tact, , , It is over- but for that very reason Little Rollo was selected to be one of the chosen. . . Sometimes Little Rollo is accused of being a parasite, that is manifestly untrue on the face of it. Little Rollo ' gives up everything in the pursuance of his duty. On Saturday mornings he will even forego the privilege of going ' to drill so that he may put powering. I Standing: Folk, Bell, Bolles, Lehman. Seated: Washburn, Niemyer (C iairj«fl«), O ' Regan. THE CLASS SUPPER THE Class Supper (some have been known to call it by other names) was held at the much suffering Hotel Emerson in Baltimore. Despite the fact that a large number of the class failed to attend (the absent being detained by three reasons — a rag, a bone and a hank o ' hair) the Supper was a huge success. Professional entertainers were not to be had, as the manager feared our over- enthusiasm, but with " Put ' s " " Dance of Flowers " , and " Tommy ' s " stunts, there was no lack of amusement for all hands from start to finish, when the orchestra started " Anchors Aweigh " , and everyone jumped to his feet and did an individual snake dance around the banquet hall. The one man mainly responsible for the success of the Supper is the Chairman, " Ike " Niemyer. His energy in getting results is equalled only by his patience in the face of many misunderstandings with the rest of the committee " far away on the billow. " In all, it was a great and ne ' er-to-be-forgotten night. Those who missed it will in years to come be denied the priceless privilege of looking back on that gathering of men of ' 23 as one of the big occasions of their lives. To those who did attend, the memories of that night will remain always, and when the last reunion of ' 23 is held and " Old tales be retold, " many is the good one that will feature l923 ' s Class Supper.

In their choice of plays to produce, they cannot give, under the prohibi- tion of the copyright law, anything that is at present playing. Thus they are debarred from any play that is at all up to the minute. Noth- ing serious, nothing that can be stigmatized by a contemptuous midshipman audience as " high- brow " can be even considered. Farces and comedies are available, but most modern farces and comedies are too replete with risque situa- tions and racy lines for a cast of men to put across with the least success. They must arnuse, but must not offend the most hyper-delicate taste. Frequently it is demanded why The Masqueraders do not put on a play written by a midshipman. Simply because there are no midshipmen who have the time or the ability to write a three-act play. , , i n j • u Bearing all these things in mind, and having chosen the play, they have still to contend with an extremely shallow and inadequate stage, a dearth of stage facilities, and an auditorium whose acous- tics make its name a joke. Its cast must be made up of men whose training in dramatics or elocution, if any, has been of the m ost elementary character. And they must face an audience which, curiously enough, will persist in judging the performance they give, by the standards of Broadway. Remembering all these factors, the decision of The Masqueraders to put on " Come out of the Kitchen " was audacious to say the least. To put on a play whose entire plot revolved around a femi- nine character was daring enough, but then to choose a play, which, while a comedy, depended for its effect on the characterization done by the actors, was the last word in audacity. But their auda- ciousness was more than justified by their success. The man on whose small shoulders rested the burden of putting the play across was Billy Pearce, and he bore his burden nobly. Few except those in the cast and some of his particular friends, will ever know how tremendously hard Billy worked, or how much of his energy and enthusiasm went into perfecting himself in his part. Floods of fulsome praise are worthless, so we will have to content ourselves by paying him the highest compli- ment that can be given to any actor. He lived his part and held his audience. No more need be said, when one realizes that he was playing a girl ' s part, and a very difficult one at that. His performance was marvellous. The utter silence of the audience after his emo- ! ta M jt j» » j» M J» .t» - f iiave had for years and with a more exacting part would have carried off much higher honors. Herrington was very successful in a difficult role as the dowager. The secondary love affair of the plot was put across deftly by McCutcheon. as the poet, and van Nagell, who played oppo- site him. Armstrong, who characterized an old negro mammy, was excellent except for his make-up, which could have been improved. His voice was particularly good. Stevenson made a delightfully Southern real estate agent. Hotlz- claw was his best in the boyish Brindlebury who smashed china and got discharged. Kimzey was particularly good among the minor characters. He had very good lines, and it speaks well for his ability that he was able to put over his lines with his back to the audience during the dinner. Lankford played the brother, and the butler, and was particularly good in the butler part. Ringle is last but not least, by any means. He brought to his small part his previous experience and made the most of it. The staging was good, especially the third act set, which was made very effective by the lighted candles.

Last minute directions — earn- est requests for someone or other to " For God ' s sake do this or that " , and then the swings back-off with the old. on with the new — and dodging the late actors and roustabouts removing the props, the new assume the conventional smile and rush out to contribute their share to the pleasure of the evening, while being congratu- lated are those who " Thank the Lord it ' s over. " Then a final announcement, the ring-master cracks his whip with a final snap and heaving the sigh of one who has done Bu rn.f Trundle a la IlLUdini well, leaves pleasure to run its own course. Side-shows, dancing en- hanced in value by the difficul- ties, streamers, confetti, the cabaret with its singers and soft lights, the canoes in the swimming pool, moons, kisses, empty bottles, — then the end. The Gymkhana passes from the present into the unforget- able past. The bright colors fade as a sky at sunset, but the crowd is left throbbing with that which is so absolutely essential to life — pleasure and its memories.

' ANNAPOLIS-ON-THE-SEVERN— yj Big School for Little Boys! FOR 2400 SELECT YOUNG CHAPS YOU have always looked for a school like this, you have often wondered if such a school existed, but nowhere else in the world will you find it — except here! The home atmosphere is unexcelled, you send us the boy and when we return him you will never recognize your son. Just enough military training to inculcate habits of squads right and squads left, study and play carefully supervised. Upper classmen take a hand in the education of the newcomer and voluntarily aid him over the rough spots with cheery words of advice and comfort. An instructor to every ten boys, inspiring earnestness and cultivating faith and high ideals in all our little tots. ' , Happy the child who early learns to make a little journey around the world among home books, to catch a glimpse of Tiny Tim cheerily waving his sword and calling " God bless us everyone — you ' re down, " to supplement classroom work in literature with such vivid etching as is shown in " Naval Courts and Boards, " to whet his love of daring and adventure on the stirring tales of " Alice in Wonder- land " — we give the broadest education of any school in the world! Every summer spent upon the water and in foreign ports teaches your boy things he would never learn anywhere else, and this adds nothing to the cost of tuition for you. Large roomy buildings, hot in the summer and cold in the winter, beautiful grounds, plenty of trees, grass, water, air, etc., etc. Has Sing Sing beat a mile. Courses in dancing, social etiquette, how to enter a ball room, domestic science, bed making, and a thousand other attainments your boy should possess. All this means manly little men who will grow into courageous successful big men. Parents appreciate the atmosphere of sympathy, encouragement, and understanding for their little boys at Annapolis-on-the-Severn. Lady teachers on Saturdays and Sundays from the leading educational institutions of the East, tender care and instruction in every modern attainment given to all. Three minutes walk from historic old Annapolis, if your boy comes to us he will never ask you to send him to another school. MJ» »J Jt ittj J»J» »J»J1JllU» jt iJl» i Annapolis on the Severn Yes, ma ' am, I ' m the guide. I ' ve been here ever since Fritz Price came in as a plebe and I ' m very well qualified. You can drive the car inside but really there won ' t be any need of it, for walking is exceptionally easy in the school campus — our boys walk to and from every class no matter what the weather, and they enjoy it too. This is Maryland Avenue — no, ma ' am, the cars don ' t run off at the other end, that ' s where the excursi on boats come to take the boys on picnic trips. That building on the left is the Officers ' Club — oh, yes indeed they have clubs, they have to have some place to escape the Carvel Branch of the Navy Welfare League. Looks like the morgue? Yes, ma ' am! That monument was — er — oh, yes, erected to the man who went through the Academy and never had a grad debt, a really remarkable achievement! All the boys who are now in school wonder how the feat was done — what is a grad debt .? A lease on the fifty years of life after gradua- tion, renewed each year and never settled, the repentance at leisure for buying in haste. The building on the right is where the Academic Board holds autopsies twice a year and is the source of the Superintendent ' s orders, which bring much pleasure sometimes to the students — sometimes! Just beyond is the Chapel, a truly marvelous building, so marvelous that we often wonder why it ever was placed inside these walls. The students go there on Sunday, such manly little fel- lows they are as they march along, so brave and independent! Down Maryland Avenue is Mahan Hall, on the left is Sampson Hall, so called because every day it slaughters as many as the jawbone of an ass. That edifice over there is the Power House, it runs the steam whistle, keeps the radiators cool, and uses up coal. On the inside of that next building are kept the models— the mid- shipmen get theoretical instruction in models here and practical handling during September and Christmas Leaves. The Building is called the Steam Building because it is the only one in the place that ever gets any heat. Across the creek you see the cemetery and hospital, yes, ma ' am, it is quite a convenient arrangem ent. As we go up Stribling Walk you will notice the monument on your right- erected to John Paul Jones for his capture of the " Emden " at Salamis. Yes, ma ' am, very interesting, and so historical. Bankrupt Hall was so named after the Army game last November, it is second only to the Commodore for size, weight and speed, accuracy and simplicity of construction. It is where our boys live, each in his dainty little room with bath. Each little tot has his own bed and it is a charm- ing picture to see them at night as they lie there dreaming of sweet nothings. In the back is the Mess Hall, so called— well just so called for obvious reasons. No, ma ' am, that isn ' t a ship stuck out in the bay, that ' s a lighthouse. Here come the First Classmen from an examination in Navigation— they just carry those books for sheer delight, ma ' am, because they love the subject so. See •them frolicing merrily as they scamper along — the clever little rascals! The officer over there is enjoying it too, see he has stopped to talk to them— probably he is telling them some new game to play so they can amuse themselves on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Main Office to your left — yes, ma ' am, thank you and please recommend our school to your friends. 453 I I irtr»rwtrar»rw tr9r»rvtrv9rvtr r9)rv rvvWi Our Hall of Fame To each of us is given the ability to excel in some given line. In a class of over four hundred men representing the culture, training, and viewpoint of our entire country, are found many different types, each different and in some cases distinctive. The distinctive types come unbidden to our minds when the key-note of their character is sounded — when we hear certain adjectives, names, or terms we in- stinctively associate some well-known person with the word or words. But in this same class of over four hundred there is of necessity a diversity of opinion on some subjects, which is even as it should be. To determine the choice of the Class of ' 23 before it left " Annapolis on The Severn " , of those of the class who in the popular opinion most embody certain characteristics, a questionnaire was given to every man in the class on which he indicated his opinion or choice. Ninety-six per cent of the class voted; where there was unanimity of choice only that choice is given; where the competition was very close the name of the man winning second place in any choice is given under that characteristic. Don ' t let your son get his picture into the " Rogue ' s Gallery " when he has a chance to get into such an assemblage as this by coming to " Annapolis on The Severn.

Against the strongest intercollegiate competition, the team has come through with a slate ot victories, the last League contest with the powerful aggregation from Gouger result- ing in a victory through the greater stamina and strength of the stable Navy warriors. The team suffered greatly through the loss of many veterans in ' 22, but the Regi- ment was behind the sport to a man, and no man in the lineup was assured ot his place. Competition was especially close for " Hide the Point, " but Niemyer as skipper eventually won out. Special credit should go to " Doc " Snyder and to the English Department for the sensational work of the year. An All-American ath- lete is born not made, and William Camp could not but select our entire team as his All-American selection. The entire team was awarded Blue and Gold enameled ear-protectors, and an even more successful season is expected next year. The Army contest was cancelled but there is no doubt that the Pointers would have been thoroly cowed had they remained in Philly. The Varsity lineup was as fol- lows: MAINSTAY BILL BURFORD SENIOR ASSISTANT . . TOMMY CARLIN JUNIOR ASSISTANT . .

This young chap has reason to feel abashed. He has just come to formation wearing his white hat instead of the conventional cap worn by his classmates. The Regulation Book would have helped him — and may yet! In an instant it was done! This midshipman thoughtlessly has taken otF his full dress blouse and exposed a torn and shredded shirt. He sees his mistake now but it is too late— the fem- mes are blushing and giggling at hirn in a con- fused manner while he is extremely ill at ease. The Regulation Book would have told him just what to wear. To " keep your shirt on " so to speak. I_ See the look of humiliation on the plebe ' s face in this picture. He has just greeted the Battalion Officer with a hearty slap on the back, and a cheery " Hello, Sir " ! This while sincere, is decidedly poor form — we might even go so tar as to say coarse. What a pity he did not con- sult his Regulation Book first — it tells all this and much more— much! The Regulation Book Sent for FREE Examination If you do not already own the famous book ot Etiquette, send for it at once that you may examine it at our ex- pense. Don ' t be without it another week.

This young chap has just taken a large handful of " Shivering Liz " and is in the act of eating it — when — he sees too late that all the plebes are eating it with their knives. What a pity he didn ' t consult his Regulation Book! It tells what, where, when and how to eat everything from poi to jordber med flote. To err is human — but can easily be avoided — if you understand the conventions of society. The midshipman at the left altho a one striper has just committed a social blunder. He has been out with this girl and has just found out that his room-mate is dragging her! The Regu- lation Book would have told him he should have asked her who was dragging her. —- y UTi ' ' I — Alas, this is the moment he has been waiting for — he had hoped to impress her favorably! And he now has the entire dining room in sus- penders, if you please, . " nd her folks are so wealthy, too. Oh, that he might have seen a copy of the Regulation Book before this fateful hour. ♦I i ■ ; pro ble that may be puzzling you, tells you the i Regain Your Vigor and Vitalityl Conquer your If ' eakn esses!

XXI i 4 INTO the subtle witchery of Hawaii and its summer seas has been woveiia fascinating thread of romance by the United States Navy. The first Ameri(jn naval vessel to visit the islands was the Sloop-of-war Peacock in Octolr, 1826, and from that day to this Hawaii ' s aloha for our navy has continu£y increased. In troubled times of the little Hawaiian monarchy Old Glory floating o;r men-of-war in the roadstead lent a reassuring tone of security, and now with its great b le at Pearl Harbor, the navy plays a large part in maintaining Hawaii ' s reputation as t strongest and friendliest outpost of the United States. Down through the years the American navy has danced on our lanais (verandahs) ad into our hearts; it has wooed and won many of our fairest daughters; it has enticed man if our most promising sons to the sea. Is there any wonder that it holds a high place in ( i esteem! " (t Simn hut Hit XXII 1 Ask Drnby: lie Knows. ' ' iint sr. :? mi , ...

If your garters bind, or are heavy, your legs suffer. That ' s because your garter has to hold up its own weight as well as the weight of your sock. Your leg has to hold up both. Ivory Garters are the lightest garters made. They are all lively elastic — no dead cloth or iron clasps. They cling to your legs lightly, but not too tightly. They hold up your socks — not the circulation of your blood. Demand the greatest leg comfort when you buy — ask for " Ivory Garters " by name. Wide or standard web — single or double grip — 25c up.

" It does exist in business. The President of a Company hires the son of a trusted friend. Why? Not merely because the young man is the son of a friend; but because the President believes that good blood will tell. A Yale graduate, who is a gen- eral manager, hires a Yale grad- uate as an assistant. Why. Not merely because the younger man is a Yale man, but because the general manager believes that training will tell. IN Cincinnati the Board of Directors of a financial institution was considering several men for the position of Vice President and General Manager. The successful applicant — the man who now holds that coveted position — has written an account of his interview with the Board of Directors. " I stated my experience, " he writes, " and added that I had completed the Modern Business Course of the Alexander Hamilton Institute. " I then learned that several members of the Board were subscribers to the Institute. They evidently knew that the knowledge obtained from the Course and Service gives a man a thoro grasp of the controlling forces of business, and fits him to hold a responsible executive position. At any rate, I was selected ... " There are men in Cincinnati who say of this man: " He has a pull with the Directors. " They are right. But the " pull " is a perfectly legitimate one. The Directors, who owe a part of their success to the training of the Alexander Hamilton Institute, picked him because they believed that the same training had made him a man whose judgment they could trust. Th is does not mean that every man who completes the Institute Course is " taken care of " in business. Business does not " take care of " anybody. It does mean, however, that with the knowledge and self-confidence that this training gives, you have an added asset — a ng bu J. Hcnry favorable introduction to the 200,000 worth-while men who are enrolled with you. The Alexander Hamilton Institute makes no exaggerated claims and at- tempts to exert no pressure. It asks simply the privilege of laying the full facts before thoughtful men. The facts are contained in a 118-page book- let entitled " Forging Ahead in Busi- ness. " Reading it may be the means of bringing you in touch with men who will vastly widen your opportunities for success. j J Alexander Hamilton Institute ■ I ■ 753 Astor Place, New York City I Send me " Forging Ahead in Business " which I may keep without obligation.

On January 25, 1918, The Baldwin Locomotive Works agreed to build five gun mounts for the United States Government. These mounts were to be finished in from 100 to 120 days, and the guns, gun slides and strictly ordnance fittings were to be supplied by the United States Navy. A separate date of delivery was set for each mount, and -in every case deliveries were made ahead of time. The first mount which was scheduled for delivery on May 15, 1918, was completed on April 25th, and the last one scheduled for June 15th was completed May 25th. These naval guns proved so satisfactory when tested that six additional mounts were immediately ordered and built. Five guns like the one illustrated above were in action in France. They were used 782 times on 25 difi erent days at ranges which averaged 30,000 to 45,000 yards.
