■ ' I ' H i» fi f f^ f^ f ? ' f 1798. ApHl 27. Con- g r e s s authorized purchase of 12 warships for pur- pose of waging war on the high seas ^ V zArthur Stephen ^orn Racine, Wisconsin Art " " Ben Turp ' in " " Be IT was one day in July that Born of Navy became a part of the Service. After an interest- ing and spectacular period at St. John ' s Military Academy, his inclination toward the water carried him to the Naval Academy. Members of the crew squad at the Academy when he entered, for his looking cross-eyed on request, gave him the monicker of Ben Turpin, and nothing has been able to shake it from him. His work at prep school in football and crew stood him in good stead and it was but a step from Plebe squad to Navy squad for him in both these. A lay-off Youngster year from the water but served to make him better afterwards. His conscientiousness in athletics and training for them carried over into the Academic Department, and he found his standing well above the credit line. Though near the shoals once or tvi ' ice, his danger has never been serious. Ben is slow to anger. He is kidded unmerci- fully, but he assumes that it ' s all in fun, and passes it off. Trouble never sits heavy on his shoulders, and girls interest him not at all. Ben is a shipmate from the keel up, and when we look back from four stripes, any duty with him will scintillate as a diamond in the mud. Edward Tage Southwick Brookline, Massachusetts " Bud " " Southu ' ickles " " Ed " Come score or so of years ago Brookline was ^ blessed with the coming of a young fellow who was to wear a heavy beard, and who was to enter this Admirals ' training school. No, none other than Bud, known far and wide as the champion perpetrator of the practical joke. He came fresh from Brookline High School, with a " Hahvahd " accent and a itw of those mannerisms, and instituted a new reign of terror here, but we love him for it. Bud shone on the gridiron and cinder path before he came here, but an unfortunate operation just prior to his entrance spoiled his chances. He has had quite a time trying to fit into other sports, but has played Water Polo and rowed some. One day he thought attention was at ease, and it took him six weeks to get off the Awkward Squad. Outside of that, his affairs with the Executive Department were itw and far between. Academi- cally, he has worried but little. He is great on shows. Whenever there is one, you ' ll find his name among those present. He ' ll laugh with you or at you, and trouble slides off his back like the pro- verbial water off the proverbial duck. He ' s been sworn at, and threatened, but when it ' s all over we like him the better. We can but thank him for making life a bit more pleasant for all of us.
