Walter Edwin Fratzkf. crookston, minnesota ■Walt " " Ski " TO note all the traits, the likable characteristics and the exciting life of our hero from the Northwest would have done credit to a Boswell. We have learned a lot about him in our four-year sojourn with him but we suspect that in back of tho se smiling features are hidden a dark and terrible past of which we know nothing. But let that be as it may, he has made a place for himself in the hearts of all of us. In the line of athletics Walt has tried everything but polo and had he followed his youthful ambition to enter West Point he might be playing it. Up until the beginning of Second Class year he had steered pretty well clear of the fair sex but of late he has taken to the gentle art of Snaking. Every now and then he steps out and shows the lesser satelites how they do It back in Minnesota. Ever since he became one of the Forty Percent, he has had a continual battle with the Ac Department. His version of Johnny Gow did not agree with that of the Steam Department so Walt found himself high and dry on the steam bush. Only by hard and conscientious boning has he been able to stay with us and despite his little controversies he has managed to slip through. Nev- ertheless it ' s all over now and he ' s a better man for having won his battles. " Howinell do they expect a fellow to work this prob.? " DEUCES were wild and look what we drew Wiscon- sin ' s pride and the Navy ' s despair. This six feet and one inch of ' 2.4 was handed down to us to have and to hold, to keep and possess, to swear by and at. Starting things off with a crash. Salty has held his own through thick and thin, St. John ' s, the Reina, and the Sub-Squad. This last has always been his biggest trouble. He takes to water like a Filipino takes to winter ice carnivals. Every afternoon during Sub-Squad season will find Salty with his ballast tanks filled cruising about on the bottom of the swimming pool. Never of the rabid Snake variety, still there have been times when the femmes did exert their influence to an alarming extent, and it was during this period that Elmer needed the most careful attention. However, of late, some one seems to have thrown a wrench in Cupid ' s machinery for the femme curve plotted against amount available has taken a decided drop. In spite of all his faults and short-comings, his cruises, leaves and general life all bear the same tale of making friends, keeping old ones, and in general finding the sunny side of life over the path of least resistance by using every day horse- sense. His good nature is as big as his feet — awfully large. Assistant Manager, Track (5, 2); Sub-Squad; Black N ; Manager, Track ( ). 360 Elmer Henry Salzman kiel, wisconsin " Salty " " Elmer "

WHAT part of Minnesota are you from, Mister? " " I ' ve lived in New York all my life, sir. " " ' The Influence of Environment ' doesn ' t apply to you, does it? " Pete might have worn a constellation on his full dress collar, but too often energy born of ambition gave way to the wiles of Morpheus. Since he could not distinguish himself Academically, he did it financially. Without a doubt, he stood first in amount available. He enjoys the unique distinction of having bought only one magazine during the course, even though he has read scores of them. He always returns them, but. Gosh, what a con- noisseur of fiction he is! Notwithstanding his unparalleled capacity for absorb- ing nourishment, Pete carries little, if any, superfluous. He made his debut as a crew man in the inter-battalion race Plebe summer, and has been with the game since. Practice makes perfect, and if this were the Navy of Themistocles time, Pete ' s ability as an oarsman would have netted him two stripes upon Graduation. " We had a fruity time this afternoon; didn ' t hardly get warmed up — only two Henleys and three miles at thirty-six. " Plebe Crew, Navy Numerals; Creiv Squad (5, 2, i).

Oscar Pederson new york city " Pete " " Sivede " Louis Everett Gunther grand rapids, michigan " Ev " BEING a midshipman is merely a side issue with Ev; his real occupation is the compilation of a dictionary of the English language, one that will in time put Mr. Webster ' s great work completely out of the race. In the meantime, Noah ' s little hand-book is his constant com- panion. Each day he learns to spell a new word or two; it is his boast that when his letters are collected and published there shall not be found a misspelled word. To him love is essential; it is indeed a rare day that two or three letters in feminine handwriting do not grace his table, and still he cries for more. " Great Screech- ing Whirlwinds " he cries, " Only one letter today! " His command of language is one of his many assets and it is but seldom he comes out on the wrong end of an argument. ' ' ' Say, kid, what ' s the Juice? All of Chapter Ten? Fruit! " and he turns in for the night. Academics never worry him; he lets the Departments worry for him. Once in a while he nears a reef but he always has the reserve power to back off. An optimist by nature, he can always see the cheerful side of life; it is this quality that carried him over some of the rough spots in his Naval Academy career and will stand by him in the years to come. 359

YOUTH, the Joy of Living, but without Sorrows there would be no Joy. Our Nell knows. It happened a long time ago. A picture, something bound with a pink ribbon, memories — need I say more? Sad? Oh, no, that something in his eyes denotes experience, age-old exper- ience; ' tis thus we learn. For instance, one sleeps in Church but once; one sleeps through drill but once; just ask the king of the sand pile, and take heed. And he is a persistent lad. Picture a mere youth, standing on the sand pile, a fast express — then, flying legs, clutching hands — he didn ' t miss anything and is still going strong. The right bat, a long easy swing and there you are: baseball, studies, or whatever it may be, he gets there. Need we make predictions; well started means well ended and the Country needs such men whether it be as officers in the Service or officers of public service.

Neville Goodloe Holeman dawson springs, kentucky " Nellie " " Goodie " Clarence Wade McClusky BUFFALO, new YORK " Mac " " Wade " " S AY, wait until I tell you about the ones I got this leave " ; thus begins a good story on why girls leave home. But with all this it is a safe bet that down in his heart there is only room for one and we all know who that is. Ask him — he doesn ' t mind telling you. And it all started Plebe summer. Wade also has his difficulties with the Academics, for some nights, he has to study almost a half hour on one day ' s lesson which means he can ' t turn in before eight- thirty. Mac ' s philosophy of life is never to let anything inter- fere with pleasure, because you are young only once. It took him a long time to decide to dedicate his life to the Service, but to hear him talk of Buffalo, with its many wonders, it is hard to see how he ever tore himself away from the old homestead. When Mac finally worked up enough ambition (in- spired by a certain sweet young thing} to break away from the radiator, we had great hopes for him; then bad luck in the form of a sprained shoulder ruined everything. If June 1916 finds Mac still looking for that wonderful position, we all think the Navy will be the winner and civilian life the loser. BlackN ; Class Football (2); Expert Rifleman. 361
