SWEETNESS and Lightness " ; mostly " Lightness. " And why — who wore white service instead of blues? Who made his bed every Saturday morning? Who tried to prove the right hand rule with the left hand? And who always entered the wrong room? Is he savvy? I ' ll say he is! Why, he can prove a circle is a straight line, curved with a hole in the middle, and he gave extra instruction for the Profs. Does he slant a mean eye? I ' ll say he does! Why, he can pull the sights across the Bullseye and make Buffalo Bill look like a beginner. You should see his medals for shooting. Being so light, it was necessary for him to take up some exercise to keep him down among us, so he chose bowling as the big ball reminded him of what he lacked. Although he is quite the successful bowler he has failed in inculcating the characteristics of the bowling ball. Helium came to us from Ohio State, where he was taking a course in " Pig Raising, " but since his stay at the Naval Academy he has decided to go to Florida and raise peanuts to feed midshipmen. He thinks it will be a profitable busi- ness. And — oh, yes, girls! he ' s a Red Mike; tried and trustworthy. Expert Kiflonan; Rifle Squad ( 4, j, 2, 7), Naty Numerals 0); Black iV. Welford Charles Blinn new smyrna, florida " Helium " Charles Lorain Carpenter wilkinsburg, pennsylvania ' ' Chuck ' ' ' ' Kid Carp CHUCK came to us from Pitt. There he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and a track man of no mean ability. It happened in the course of his track career that he once had occasion to visit the Naval Academy. Here for the first time in his life he saw mid- shipmen, blue-and-gold clad midshipmen; so fine, and so sportsmanlike were these midshipmen that Carp gave his Congressman no rest until he had been made one of them. Carp ' s biggest roles at the Academy were track, hops, and cold showers. Coincidently, in track events his competitors run with him; at hops, the drags run after him; and in his after-reveille showers, the cold water runs over him. So we adjudge him the Naval Academy ' s champion all-round runner. Socially, with his ready smile, he gets bv big. Physically, one need onlv ask to see his numerous medals. Mentally, he laughs at the Academic Department while his roommates bilge. And morally, he goes to Chapel every Sunday whether he has to or not. " Oh, say, Carpenter, have you heard the latest? " " No, what is it? " " Why, there is a track meet the Saturday before Easter. " " Well, I ' ll be darned. And I wanted to go home for Easter Leave.

Henry Harrison G ' Sell kansas city, missouri " Cizi H " " Hclllk " BEHOLD what brings the sweet young things to Crabtown! Hank certainly must be a connoisseur of feminine tactics for, besides the girl in Baltimore and the one " somewhere farther on, " the Missouri woods must be full of them. That is, if his reputation as a Snake is good for anything. With the exception of Dago, the Academics have held no terrors for him. The fact is, he has used his Mathy brain to the good advantage of many of his sinking classmates. His favorite sport is Bridge, but when he is not holding the cards he is usually hofding the sheet and tiller of a sailboat. His memorable cruise in a catboat, which others besides himself know of, will not be soon for- gotten. " Rain? Well, it surely did! " It is hard to understand why we have always asso- ciated Missouri with the mule when we think of Hank. The only resemblance which he bears to one is in his strength and sturdiness. His pleasant disposition has made him a real classmate and a friend of all. Class Water Polo (2). WE have not yet begun to fight, " as John Paul Jones said, IS the ' spirit of Zirk. His never-failing pres- ence in the j50ol every afternoon gives plenty of evidence of that. One would ' really think that he was earnestly preparing himself for Submarine service. He knows that only persistent training will earn him a berth on the Sub-Squad. It is unfortunate that his name begins at the wrong end of the alphabet because when in the Navy line (waiting line) he is usually last. But that doesn ' t worry Earl, " he has made his Academic record stand at the other end of the list. This all goes to show that he has the proper Navy spirit. Evidently Youngster leave wasn ' t as successful for him as for ' most Youngsters because he forgot to make Second Class leave. We ' cannot, however, call him a Red Mike because dancing and Baltimore have quite an attraction for him. Ambitious? Energetic? Gosh! you would not believe it, but reveille and stoop falls are as necessary and regular for him as chow. The day is old for him at late blast; ask his roommates.

Justus Rogers Armstrong rogersville, tennessee " Red " " Rouge " NOW we have the conscientious life of the party, the despair of the lesser wits, and the actor superb. But of course he is not aware of his gifts. He flaunts him- self as the exponent of mediocrity very earnestly. So earnestly that he betrays himself. Just a homely phil- osopher, folks, whose dry epigrams bespeak the national genius. But if you were to agree with him as to his niedi- ocrity, he woiild not speak to you for a long, long time. We shall now tell of the metamor ' phosis of the Tennes- see wild-flower to the young man-of-the-world. In the days of his vouth, namely, Plcbe and Youngster years, Red was rabid on this and that pertaining to things unsullied. His was a delicate nature, quick to take offense at anything risque. At something out of the way, his gentle little eyes would assume a hurt expression. But after Second Class cruise, his wisdom became greater, until now his savoire jam bursts upon one like an over- ripe melon. As to theatricals. Red is not only right among them, but right between them. What presentation is satisfactory without his picturesque renditions of character parts? We do not know, for we have never seen any dramatics in which he failed to appear. Masqiwaders (. , i, 2,) Director Qi): Log Stajf (2, ), Log Board (_i); Class Track Q}, 2), Numerals (j). OH, the minstrels sing of an English king " and his re- incarnation we ' ll now declare as being " there " in our ejaculation. Since summer days, when Plebedom ' s ways were both our joy and worry, this Limey chap (behold his map), was never known to hurry. He loafs serene upon the scene of every All-Ac battle, nor turns his head, nor halts his tread wherever slip-sticks rattle. And in the ring he ' s quite the thing, his gloves are ever ready. He bangs and slaps the other chaps until they all turn heady. His eyes of blue once ne ' er were true but from each winsome maiden strayed oft aside with surging tide of guile quite heavy laden. But sad to say, one fateful day his glances chanced to linger, and in a week this savage sheik was wound about her finger. But he is wise, and so his eyes still have a dash of devil, though we ' ll confess, for faithfulness, he ' s really on the level. And now we ' re done, we ' ve had our fun and our lampooning ' s over. May all his years be free from tears and may he live in clover; for now the days bring parting ways and so with outstretched hand, we pledge you right, for any fight, the Navy ' s found a Man!
